How Important Is Air Duct and HVAC Cleaning?

12/13/2018 (Permalink)

Cleaning How Important Is Air Duct and HVAC Cleaning? Overtime, air ducts collect dust. This makes the perfect place for bacteria, allergens and even mold to grow.

Cleaning the air duct system is essential to breathing clean, fresh air in your home and office. It can just as easily be forgotten about – until the dust and allergens begin to disrupt the air quality. How can you tell if your HVAC system needs cleaning? One factor to look out for is if every time you turn on your air conditioner unit or heater, a small amount of dust blows out. Another thing to look out for is a musty smell coming from the air ducts. 

You may be asking if it is really that necessary to clean the air ducts. We here at SERVPRO Claremont / Montclair want you to know it is extremely important. Fine particles of dust collect on the surfaces of vents, coils and motors. This makes the perfect breeding place for bacteria to run amuck. Over time, hair, pet dander, allergens and even mold can grow in HVAC systems. Those who have allergies, or experience unexplained symptoms, can also be indications that your air ducts need to be cleaned.

If there is smoke from nearby fires around, we highly recommend having your air ducts and HVAC system cleaned. Just like smoke, ash and soot can easily blow through the air and into your units. This can be a definite health hazard and is unhealthy to breathe in for anyone.      

To prevent this from happening, it is important to periodically check how your air ducts are doing. If they require a thorough cleaning, schedule an appointment at 909-399-9057.

Cleaning Make Your Hardwood Floors Shine Brighter Who knew the wood in your home was supposed to shine like this!?

Layers Of Grime and Oil Will Disappear With SERVPRO's Secret Formula.

From oak to maple, hardwood in your home can really make any space come to life. When it is cared for properly, the wood tends to shine, giving the room an entirely different feel in your home or office. As time passes though, the buildup of dirt, oil and grime remain. This leaves your hardwood flooring (even those gorgeous wooden doors) looking cloudy and dull.

With SERVPRO of Claremont / Montclair’s secret wood cleaning formula, this worry is a thing of the past. Depending on the foot traffic, we recommend that all wood floors receive a deep cleaning at least twice a year (and if you are in an office or commercial building, maybe every season). As part of our cleaning services, our experienced technicians use specialty tools to catch every inch of buildup. This will make your floor sparkle and shine like new.

For more information on our cleaning services for your home or office building, please give us a call to schedule an appointment at 909-399-9057.

How a Deep Cleaning Can Eliminate Carpet Bacteria

12/3/2018 (Permalink)

Cleaning How a Deep Cleaning Can Eliminate Carpet Bacteria Deep cleaning your carpet will sanitize it from bacteria, allergens and dirt stuck within.

A Household Vacuum Cleaner Just Isn't Enough.

There is more in a carpet than the eye leads us to believe. The carpet in your home or office can become the breeding ground for bacteria – let alone a homey place for allergens (and even pet dander/urine from our furry family members) if not cleaned properly. Sometimes, it takes a lot more than just a household vacuum to save the day. If you took a microscope and looked deep down into the microfibers, you would discover everything the everyday vacuum missed. These vacuums can also be a menace by blowing dirt and germs back into the air we breathe. In fact, the dirt we see on our carpet is only at the very top. Yikes!

With tools like our commercial grade extraction wands, SERVPRO of Claremont / Montclair offers deep carpet cleaning services. These extraction wands get deep inside your carpet, sucking up the bacteria that can cause allergies or worse, an unhealthy space. Our extracting process with SERVPRO’s “magic wand” and specially formulated shampoo eliminates odors too, allowing your home or office to smell fresh and clean.

Our vast supply of disinfectants, deodorizers and powerful stain removers will make sure your carpet is sanitized without the stains. To book an appointment, give our office a call at 909-399-9057.

Deep Clean Your Tough Carpet Stains Away

Cleaning Deep Clean Your Tough Carpet Stains Away Sanitize your carpet and get rid of the pet dander, bacteria and germs for good with our deep cleaning carpet services.

Get Those Tough Stains Out - Finally!

It is never too early to begin “spring cleaning” aka detail cleaning your home or business. This goes for every carpet in each room. Think about it – when we walk outside, our shoes pick up dirt and debris. This can be carried onto our carpets as we walk across them daily. If there are toddlers or small children in the home, we set up play areas for them – on the carpet. They learn to crawl and walk also on the carpet…you get the picture. We use our carpets all the time, yet it never crosses our minds that allergens, bacteria and pet dander can be lurking in it. A soiled carpet is the perfect place for bacteria to breed and spread.

Now, you may be thinking “I vacuum all the time, this doesn’t apply to my carpet.” This is where many of us have been misinformed. The soiled stains from juice, wine and pets are still there and unfortunately, a household vacuum cleaner only grabs dirt from the very top of a carpet. In order to get your carpet fully cleaned, you will need a deep cleaning like the service we offer. With SERVPRO’s deep cleaning services, all the dander, soiled spots, tough stains and germs will be eliminated.   

We here at SERVPRO of Claremont / Montclair advise you to have all carpets deep cleaned at least every 6 months. With our state-of-the-art sanitizers, deodorizers and stain removers, our technicians will give you peace of mind that your carpet is completely clean. For more information on our deep cleaning carpet services, give us a call at 909-399-9057 and schedule an appointment today.

Know Where To Shutoff Water Valves

11/12/2018 (Permalink)

General Know Where To Shutoff Water Valves Whether you're the homeowner or just renting, its always a good idea to know where the shutoff valves are in case an emergency occurs.

Shut off water valves in case of emergency.

Knowing where the shutoff valves are throughout your home and business can save you a whole lot of time and headaches. It is handy to know each one’s whereabouts, in case any flooding occurs or water overflow of any kind happens. It is also good to know how to turn off each of the valves, even if it is just for routine maintenance. We will go over some common valves you will find in your home or business and show you how to turn them off.  

The Meter - The meter is commonly found in residential homes towards the curb, near the street. It controls where your local city’s water begins and where it divides in your property. If you lift the lid, you will find the shut-off to the meter box, which controls the water of both the interior and exterior of the residence. This includes sinks, showers, sprinkler systems and pools, just to name a few.  

Main Service – Located at the “main service”, a water line goes up to the front of the house and connects to the hose bib or water spigot. If it can’t be found there, try looking in the garage too. Shutting it off will turn off the water inside your home, but not disturb irrigation outside.

Water Heater – The water in your water heater is given by the “main service” line. You can find the shutoff valve at the very top, next to the water flex lines.

Locating and shutting off the water supply is crucial if an emergency occurs. With a little bit of preparation, knowledgeable homeowners and business owners can have peace of mind.
