3 Signs You Should Schedule a Professional Carpet Cleaning

3/17/2021 (Permalink)

Carpet is the preferred flooring material for many homeowners, as it helps create a warm and comfortable living environment. However, over time, the fibers can become embedded with dirt, dust, and allergens. While frequent vacuuming is an important part of carpet maintenance, it’s not enough to remove contaminants that have settled. Therefore, regular carpet cleanings are also necessary to keep floors tidy. Here are some telltale signs you should call a professional cleaner.

What Signs Indicate You Need a Carpet Cleaning?

1. Stains

As dirt gets tracked indoors, carpets can appear discolored. Without a deep cleaning every other year, it’s common to see areas with heavy foot traffic accumulate grime. Also, pet accidents and spills can leave unsightly stains that change a carpet's appearance. Professional cleaners have special tools and products that work to get rid of stubborn stains.

2. Allergy Symptoms 

When carpets trap dust mites, pet hair, and dander, they can reduce your indoor air quality. These particles often trigger allergy symptoms, including coughing, sneezing, and itchy eyes. Household members that have respiratory conditions might also find it difficult to breathe. If you’re consistently feeling sick, a professional carpet cleaning will help you enjoy fresher air. 

3. Unpleasant Odors

Carpet fibers can absorb smells that won’t go away no matter how much you vacuum. Unpleasant odors can come from spills, pets, and smoke. You may be able to hide any stenches temporarily with an air freshener. However, scheduling a professional cleaning and deodorizing treatment is the only way to find a permanent solution.

If you've noticed these signs, turn to SERVPRO of South Fleming Island/ North Bradford County. Our trained and experienced technicians provide effective and affordable carpet cleaning solutions for homes throughout St. Augustine, FL. We also offer mold remediation, water extraction, and fire damage repair services. Call 904-290-4040 to schedule a free estimate, or visit the website to learn more.

Tips for Staying Healthy as COVID-19 and Flu Season Continue

1/26/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO technician cleaning an office in PPE SERVPRO of South Fleming Island/ North Bradford County urges you to follow cleaning and disinfecting protocols to keep you and your family safe!

For the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged business owners and homeowners to adapt to new ways of life and working, without risking exposure to the highly contagious virus. Now with flu season being upon us, it is even more important to stay vigilant about following cleaning and disinfecting protocols to keep you, and your family safe and healthy. 

Scientists at the CDC believe that both COVID-19 and the seasonal flu are primarily spread by droplets that are produced when infected people cough, sneeze or talk. Scientists also believe that individuals can contract the flu and COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has virus particles on it and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes as well. While the CDC continues to recommend getting a yearly flu vaccine to aid in protection from flu viruses, experts also emphasize the important of cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces. Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces frequently such as tables, door handles, light switches, countertops, phones, sinks, toilets and keyboards can help mitigate the potential spread from these contaminated surfaces. 

To help control the spread of these viruses and limit exposure, the CDC recommends that you wash your hands frequently for 60 seconds at a time, or when washing your hands is not an option, using hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol. As well as keeping your hands away from your face and eyes, and wearing a mask or even gloves to protect others. 

For daily effective cleaning at home or at work, start by washing down surfaces with soap and water, then follow up with a disinfectant. 

For business owners who require deeper cleaning techniques or want to offer peace of mind to employees and customers, SERVPRO of South Fleming Island/ North Bradford County offers their Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program.

Professional Carpet Cleaning services by SERVPRO of South Fleming Island / North Bradford County!

Professional carpet cleaning services being performed SERVPRO of South Fleming / North Bradford County is here to help if you need professional carpet cleaning services, we're available at (904) 290-4040!

Many homeowners vacuum and spot-treat their carpeting to keep it looking and smelling great. However, getting a regular professional carpet cleaning offers more benefits than a simple surface sweep. Here is some information on the advantages of an expert appointment and how frequently to set up these sessions.

What Are the Benefits of Cleaning My Carpet?

Over time, pet fur, human hair, dander, skin cells, dirt, and food crumbs all become embedded in the carpet. While vacuuming will remove the top layer of debris, professional carpet cleaning teams like SERVPRO can get to the bottom of the fibers. This makes the carpet look better, while also improving the air quality by removing contaminants that can even irritate the respiratory system.

Cleaning teams use innovative technology such as bonnet cleaning for short pile carpet that doesn’t take moisture well. They may use dry cleaning for patterned flooring that may not retain coloration if exposed to hot water. SERVPRO also offers hot water extraction and shampoo to wash the fibers, mitigating caked-on dirt and stains, and deodorizing the flooring. All these methods will prevent the strands from sticking together and creating a matted feel, while also removing dirt and bits that could stretch the carpet out.

How Frequently Should I Schedule a Cleaning?

Clean homes with no pets, no smokers, and a few residents should schedule a cleaning once a year or every 18 months. Houses with larger families or several pets may need two annual cleanings to keep up with the extended traffic. Those who have frequent guests or parties will also benefit from extra carpet cleanings per year. 

Individuals who have allergies to mold, pollen, or pets, and those who have respiratory problems like asthma or COPD, should ask their doctors about carpet cleaning. Getting this service more often can remove contaminants better, and make those affected more comfortable at home by mitigating irritants. They may need to set up these appointments more frequently to improve the indoor air quality and limit symptoms.

When you’re ready to schedule a professional carpet cleaning, contact SERVPRO of South Fleming Island / North Bradford County. The expert team has been in business since 1967, offering emergency restoration services, mold remediation and mitigation, fire and water damage restoration and cleanup, as well as commercial and residential carpet cleaning services. Call (904) 290-4040 or visit their website for information on their high-quality cleaning equipment.

SERVPRO vacuum SERVPRO of South Fleming Island and North Bradford County specializes in professional cleaning and disinfecting.

We specialize in professional cleaning and sanitizing! There are many benefits of having a home or office professionally cleaned. 

  • Healthy indoor air: poor quality indoor air can cause health effects and allergies. 
  • Long term savings: expensive items such as furniture, carpets, and drapes can deteriorate and lose value if not properly cleaned. 
  • The right tools do a better job: our professional grade equipment and chemicals do more than just a "deep clean" by other weaker products or equipment. 
  • Clean carpets last longer: many people have Persian or other rugs that were made with special fibers and dyes. If not properly cleaned, they can become worn. 
  • Getting the nooks and crannies: we clean hard to reach spots that are often overlooked. Dust and grime compile in these spots.
