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 takes 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. While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.
What Will Air Duct Cleaning Do For Your Energy Savings?
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40% of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use. When a HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.
Watch for the following signs that an air duct cleaning is overdue:
Serenity Cleaning Solutions is a great choice for your carpet cleaning needs. Our cleaning equipment has more extraction power than the rental units available to individuals, and the carpet should dry quicker. Our professional technicians also understand the equipment, know the proper cleaning agents for the situation at hand, and recognize the differences in fibers and carpet construction.
Research indicates that the hot water extraction system provides the best capability for cleaning. This system is commonly referred to as "steam cleaning" although no steam is actually generated. The process consists of applying a cleaning agent into the carpet pile and using water in the extractor to recover the used solution and soil. This can be done from a truck-mounted unit outside the home with only the hose and wand brought inside or by a portable system brought into the home.
In addition to frequent vacuuming, it’s important to clean your carpet on a regular basis. The hot water extraction system will remove the oily, sticky soil that vacuums can't take out, and will help keep your carpet looking great over time.
Cleaning systems target the soils that result from cooking vapors, air pollution, and tracked-in dirt. The particles of oily soil deposited on carpet fibers can cause gradual but significant dulling of the colors. The color isn't lost, but is hidden under the film. If this type of soil is allowed to accumulate, it begins to attract and hold the dry soil.
If carpet is cleaned before it becomes too unsightly, the cleaning chore will be easier and more successful. Carpet in a typical household should be cleaned every 12 to 18 months, depending on the number of residents and amount of activity.
Isn’t it interesting that while the average person spends 1/3 of their time in bed they may never think about cleaning their mattress? Your mattress might be one of the most soiled and bacteria laden surfaces in your home. Think about it! When was the last time you had your mattress professionally cleaned?
Most people don’t clean their mattress simply because they’re always covered. But, cleaning a mattress is more than an appearance issue, it’s also a health issue. You clean your comforters, sheets, and mattress pads but neglect the primary repository of allergens, odors, bacteria, and soil—the mattress itself.
Soiled Mattresses contain:
Like any other surface in your home, natural stone also needs to be cleaned to maintain its beauty. However, natural stone requires cleaning products specifically designed for stone's unique mineral composition. The popular general-purpose cleaners will etch or damage the stone. Cleaning products containing too much acid or alkaline will etch the stone. Scouring powders and abrasives will scratch the surface.
Serenity Cleaning Solutions uses pH-balanced neutral cleaners to clean your stone to remove soils that dusting or mopping will leave behind.
How Can You Protect Your Stone?
The best way to prevent stains is to treat the surface with a protective sealer. The sealer fills in the pores and repels spills on the surface, allowing you time to completely wipe it away. Serenity Cleaning Solutions uses sealers with antimicrobial product protection. They not only protect the surface from stains, but also resist growth of mold and mildew on the dried sealer.
