How Clean is Your House?

8/24/2016 (Permalink)

For many of us cleaning our houses is a daily task, whether it is vacuuming or even sweeping. But we probably only clean 60% of the dirt without even being aware. Imagine how much build up that could lead to. Dirt is usually hidden in our own carpets, filled with dust mites, mold, and hair along with several other allergens. Vacuuming will not remove all the bacteria and dirt, but highly trained professionals at SERVPRO are able to remove noticeable dirt and even buildup and that is not visible.

There is more to a clean house than just carpet cleaning, there are areas you would never even think of! If you are wondering why your house is not cooling or heating quickly and efficiently, then it is probably because you are due for an air duct cleaning. This will improve the quality of air in your home

Air Ducts and HVAC Cleaning

7/26/2016 (Permalink)

Why Clean Air Ducts?

Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system taken air in and breathes air out.

Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.

When Should My Drapes Be Cleaned?

A good rule-of-thumb is to clean drapes approximately every two years. A recent survey by SERVPRO disclosed that the average customer believes drapes should be cleaned when they look dirty. Depending on your heating system, the amount of smokers in the home, and other factors, drapes may not show soil for two to six years. The oily atmospheric soil will gradually cause the fabric to deteriorate. Often, direct sunlight is unjustly blamed for this. You may triple the life of your draperies through professional cleaning, which is relatively inexpensive compared to replacement costs.

Professional Cleaning

When your draperies need cleaning, make certain they are dry cleaned ONLY. Only a small percentage of materials can be laundered. If in doubt, call us for advice. Be discriminating in your choice of professional dry cleaners. Some cleaners have equipment designed for clothes cleaning, while others have equipment specifically designed for draperies.

SERVPRO of West Mahoning County has an exclusive process of dry cleaning draperies right in your home. There’s no need to have your home or office exposed while your draperies are out being cleaned. We inject a specially formulated solvent into your drapery under pressure and extract the chemical, leaving your drapes clean. This special process results in no damage or shrinkage to the material. Most importantly, you will get quality cleaning at a reasonable price.
