WHY DUCT CLEANING IS IMPORTANT

While your commercial business is focused on providing a service, it’s easy to forget the services you need as well. One thing you should always put first is making sure that your employees are breathing clean air and are operating in a safe work environment. Chemicals, pollen, construction debris and dust can easily be transferred from the exterior of a building to interior through the air duct system. Here are a few advantages to having your building’s HVAC system cleaned by a professional:

  • Allergies & Dust - Pollen and dust particles will be removed in the process and the affected area will become sanitized and a safer working environment.
  • Efficiency - Years of dust, hair, pests, and other pollutants in ductwork will hinder an HVAC system’s airflow. A proper cleaning will help remove the buildup and promote the proper airflow needed to run the system at peak efficiency.

  • Eliminate Odor - The professional technicians at SERVPRO use their specialized chemicals to break down the molecular bonds that create troublesome odors. This helps to improve the overall air quality within the entire building and reduces the chances of your employees and clientele feeling uncomfortable from strange and unsettling odors that may linger in the air.

Carpet & Upholstry Cleaning

Even the highest-quality carpet and upholstery can show soiling over time. Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils.

The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.

IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet. 

How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months.

The SERVPRO System offers a number of cleaning options to match any type of upholstery or carpet with unmatched experience and the highest standards in the business.
