Many homes have carpet installed for warmth, comfort and the appearance.  It is important to maintain the carpet by having it professionally cleaned.  Here are several reasons to consider why you should have your carpets cleaned.

For the health of your family

Carpets can trap allergens and bacteria that are in your home.  If you do not remove them from the carpet, they can cause health effects.  Dust, dirt, and bacteria can be removed with professional products used to clean and sanitize your home.

For Preventing Mold Growth

Carpets can be at risk for developing mold, especially where there are high humidity levels.  Rain and snow can be brought into the house and tracked on to the carpet which can cause mold growth.  Routine carpet cleaning can help prevent the growth of mold.

For the Smell

Carpet can trap odors, especially true if you have pets.  Having your carpet professionally cleaned can help with pet odor as well as cooking odors.

For those stains

Professional carpet cleaning can help remove unwanted stains and the dirt that builds up over time. Having regular cleanings will give you the peace of mind that your carpet is looking its best.

Having a professional carpet clean can help you feel that your home is clean, fresh, and healthy for your family.

A good spring cleaning in Medina County will let you enjoy your home again!

4/29/2020 (Permalink)

It looks like winter has faded away and the spring colors are blooming.  A good spring cleaning is just what you might need to refresh and enjoy your home.

Here are a few reasons why spring cleaning is important:

When your home is closed off during the winter months, dust settles, air becomes stagnant, and your respiratory health can suffer. A good spring cleaning improves the air quality of your home and makes you feel better. Breathing –it’s a necessity of life.

When you have things taking up space and gathering dust in your home, it can impact your emotional health as well as your physical well-being. A good spring cleaning can help get rid of the winter blues. You may even find that you can concentrate better and feel less stressed.

When items in your home remain in the same place for long periods of time, dirt and dust can build up so much so that you might not even notice. A good spring cleaning can help you see your home in a new light.

As the #1 choice for cleanup and restoration, we have the resources to help you immediately.

Call SERVPRO of Medina County, Gateway and Western Lake County at 800-933-7179.

Prep your Home for Spring.

Clean Rain Gutters

Wind, animals, and gravity bring sticks, leaves, and other organic matter into your rain gutters, and chances are yours have accumulated their share of detritus over the winter. That's bad news for your home: When downspouts are clogged, rainwater can spill out of your gutters and around the perimeter of your house, putting it at risk for leaks and flooding. Get ready for spring showers by removing the mess from your gutters to ensure that the water will flow freely.

Change Filters

To maintain optimal air quality in your home, it’s a good idea to replace your HVAC system's air filter seasonally as well as the filter in your kitchen range hood. While you're at it, consider changing the filters in your water purification system. Depending on your water, you might not need to change these as often as your HVAC filters, but it's not a bad idea to check them now. So, go ahead and welcome spring with new filters all around to keep your home clean and fresh, and your appliances in good working order.

Check Vents

As snow melts away from your home’s foundation, it’s a good time to check any vents along the foundation or in the attic. Look for missing or damaged screens, debris, signs of insect or rodent infestation, or other issues, and correct them before they have a chance to become bigger problems later in the season.

Check the Roof

Take advantage of the sun’s return to check your roof for cracked or missing shingles or tiles, and examine flashing around vents and the chimney for damage. While you’re at it, have the chimney cleaned and inspected by a professional.
