What are the health benefits of air duct/HVAC cleaning?

What are the health benefits of air duct/HVAC cleaning?

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) recommends that homeowners should consider air duct cleaning if there is visible mold growth, infestation of rodents or insects, or if the ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris. However, it's important to note that while cleaning the air ducts may improve the indoor air quality, it's not a guaranteed solution for all air quality problems. Other factors such as ventilation, humidity, and source control may also need to be addressed to improve indoor air quality. Additionally, the EPA notes that there is currently limited scientific evidence to support the benefits of air duct cleaning in improving indoor air quality.

SERVPROxide™ is a powerful disinfectant that is commonly used in COVID-19 cleaning situations because of its proven effectiveness against viruses like SARS-CoV-2 on hard, non-porous surfaces. SERVPROxide™ is a hospital-grade disinfectant that the CDC approves for use in COVID-19 cleaning. The active ingredient in SERVPROxide™ is hydrogen peroxide, a commonly used disinfectant effective against a wide range of bacteria and viruses. When hydrogen peroxide comes into contact with surfaces, it breaks down into water and oxygen, which makes it a safe and environmentally friendly disinfectant. In addition to its effectiveness against viruses, SERVPROxide™ is also effective against a wide range of other pathogens, including bacteria, fungi, and mold. This makes it a versatile disinfectant that can be used in various situations. It's worth noting that while disinfectants like SERVPROxide™ are effective at killing harmful bacteria and viruses on surfaces, they should not be used on people or pets. It's also essential to follow the manufacturer's instructions when using any disinfectant, including SERVPROxide™, to ensure that it is used safely and effectively.

What’s on your walls?

What’s on your walls?

Dust and other airborne particles can accumulate on the walls of your house, especially in areas where there is high humidity, such as the kitchen and bathroom. This is because the moisture in the air can cause the dust to stick to the walls more easily. Additionally, dust can settle on the walls over time if they are not regularly cleaned or dusted.

It's important to regularly clean your walls, not only for aesthetic reasons but also for health reasons. Dust and other particles can trigger allergies and respiratory problems, especially for those with pre-existing conditions. To clean your walls, you can use a soft cloth or sponge dampened with water or a mild cleaning solution. Be sure to test the solution on a small, inconspicuous area of the wall first to ensure that it does not damage the paint or wallpaper.

How often should I get my upholstery cleaned?

How often should I get my upholstery cleaned?

It is recommended to have your upholstery cleaned professionally every 12-18 months, but the frequency depends on factors such as usage, environment, and upholstery type. Heavy usage, exposure to dirt or spills, or allergies may require more frequent cleaning. Spot cleaning and regular vacuuming can also help maintain upholstery appearance. Consult with a professional cleaner for specific needs.

How long will it take you to clean my upholstery?

How long will it take you to clean my upholstery?

The time it takes to clean upholstery depends on several factors such as the size of the furniture piece, the type of fabric and the method required to clean it. For example, cleaning a small armchair made of synthetic fabric may take less time than cleaning a large sofa made of natural fibers such as wool or silk.

The method of cleaning can also affect the time it takes. For instance, dry cleaning or steam cleaning may take longer than spot cleaning or vacuuming. Additionally, if the upholstery has deep stains or has not been cleaned in a long time, it may require more time and effort to get it thoroughly clean.

Overall, the goal is to clean the upholstery as quickly as possible while still achieving a high level of cleanliness. It's important to follow the recommended cleaning guidelines for the specific fabric to avoid damaging it during the cleaning process.

The time it takes to clean carpets depends on the area size, carpet fiber, and degree of soiling. SERVPRO uses five different cleaning methods tailored to each job:

  1. Hot Water Extraction - hot water and a cleaning solution loosen dirt and stains, then a vacuum extracts the water and dirt.

  2. Bonnet Cleaning - a rotary machine with a bonnet pad absorbs dirt and stains from low-pile commercial carpets.

  3. Shampooing - a foaming detergent is worked into the carpet fibers with a rotary machine and extracted with a vacuum.

  4. Dry Powder Cleaning - a dry cleaning powder is spread and worked into fibers with a machine, then vacuumed along with dirt and stains.

  5. Encapsulation - a special solution crystallizes and encapsulates dirt and stains, which are removed by vacuuming. SERVPRO estimates the cleaning time based on these factors.

Carpet cleaning

Why is it necessary to get my carpets cleaned?

Carpets act as a filter, trapping particles that can cause indoor air pollution. Regular vacuuming removes surface dirt, but deep cleaning is necessary to remove trapped allergens and extend carpet life. Waiting for visible dirt can damage fibers, so it's recommended to have carpets professionally cleaned annually or more for pets and children.
