Carpets and area rugs add style and warmth to your home, with all the different colors, patterns and textures. Keeping them clean is probably not a daily priority, but in order to keep them looking spic and span, that does require routine cleaning and maintenance. Carpets collect all kinds of particulates from daily use like dust, dirt and pet dander and who knows what else. Although you can minimize this by having a no-shoe rule, there will still be wear and tear that occurs. Regular vacuuming is the first and best defense to keeping carpets and rugs clean. So how often should you clean your carpets even if you’re vacuuming weekly and spot cleaning as needed? This brief breakdown will help guide you.

Water Damage Do You Know Where Your Water Shutoff Valve Is Henderson County? Do you know where your water shutoff valve is in case of an emergency?

When most people think of a home flooding, they imagine a terrible storm being the culprit of the massive amounts of water that spread through their house. While storms do cause flooding, there is often another culprit right there in your home and you use it everyday to cook, clean and shower... Yes you guessed it, your plumbing. Should your plumbing system ever spring a leak, it can very quickly fill your home with water and sometimes depending on where the leak sprung, it can effect multiple floors of your home. In this emergency situation it is essential that you know where your homes main water shutoff valve is and be prepared to use it. 

Every home has a main water shutoff valve that was put in place during construction, this valve cuts off the supply of water from running through your pipes. You’ll need it for situations where the plumbing system springs a leak that you can’t stop, or if there is a leaking pipe and you can't find its location. By using the shutoff valve, you can prevent:

  • Water Damage : The longer a water leak persists, the more damage it will cause to the structure of your home. By knowing where the shutoff valve is, you can stop the leak quickly and keep your house safe and sturdy.
  • Mold Growth : Plumbing leaks provide the amount of moisture necessary for mold to infest your house. Shutting off the water supply until you can fix the leak prevents you from having to clean that pesty mold and deal with the resulting structural damage.
  • High Utility Bills : Major water leaks waste an enormous amount of water, sending your utility bills sky rocketing through the roof. By using the shutoff valve as soon as a big leak strikes, you can help prevent an increase in cost.

Air Duct Cleaning and It's Benefits

Cleaning Air Duct Cleaning and It's Benefits Dirty ducts prior to SERVPRO of Henderson County cleaning. Protect the air that you breathe by making sure your ducts are clean.

Air ducts are responsible for circulating the air throughout your home through the heating and cooling system, spreading the air from room to room, keeping you nice and cozy all year round. This is the air that you and your family breath everyday, and as such, it should be as clean as possible. 

You can accomplish getting the cleanest air with a thorough air duct cleaning, which removes dust, mold and other debris trapped in the air system. Using heavy-duty vacuums, a professional duct cleaner will suck up all those harmful, odor-causing elements in your ducts to stop it from re-circulating in your house. This includes cleaning the supply and return ducts, in addition to the diffusers and registers located throughout the rooms of the home.

Should you be thinking about having your air ducts cleaned, there are some benefits you may not be aware of. 

Cleaner Air for Your Living Spaces

With a professional cleaning, your air ducts will be completely cleared of the dust that accumulates within the system. When dust accumulates, your HVAC system will ultimately circulate it throughout your living spaces, affecting the quality of air in your home. All of that dust settles on things such as furniture, beds, dishes and pretty much anything that’s not sealed in a bag or box... Then you end up breathing it in. A thorough air duct cleaning also reduces the amount of dusting you’ll need to do around the home.

Reduces Allergens and Irritants in the Air

Along with dust, your air ducts can accumulate other harmful contaminants, such as mold spores, bacteria, pollen, mildew and pet dander. These contaminants put irritants and allergens into the air, which can affect people who suffer from allergies, asthma and other respiratory issues. Even with individuals who don't have respiratory issues, the allergens and irritants entering the nose and lungs can trigger sneezing and coughing, as well as sinus and bronchial problems. Dirty ducts will continue to circulate bad air into your home, but thankfully by cleaning your air duct system, you can help promote healthier living.

Improved Air Flow

As dust, mold, contaminants and other debris accumulate in air ducts, it blocks the system’s incoming and outgoing airflow. Larger volumes of clean air will circulate throughout the home with cleaner air ducts, this air will also be able to maintain its temperature over longer periods of time, thus resulting in less strain on your HVAC system. Consequently, this will lower the cost of utility bills, as a clean system will be able to operate at its peak efficiency and provide the most cost-effective performance for your energy dollar.

Removes Unpleasant Smells and Odors

Have you ever returned to your home from a vacation or business trip and noticed an unpleasant odor? Well, that’s what other people smell when they come to your home. Every time you turn on your air system, those odors just keep recycling throughout the house. Because you live there, you’ve most likely grown accustomed to however your home smells. An air duct cleaning will get rid of those bad household odor particles, leaving you with a better smelling home.
