HVAC Cleaning for the Spring Season
Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. By removing contaminants from a home or business air duct system, the effects of dust and mold are greatly reduced. Clean, healthy, circulating air is a must for those sensitive to indoor air contaminants, especially for people with allergies. But how dirty do your air ducts need to be before they need to be cleaned by a professional?
Here are the top reasons air ducts should be inspected and serviced:
1. Allergies. By properly cleaning your air duct system homeowners protect their families from harmful dust and other contaminants. Air ducts provide an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, mold, fungi, and other allergens.
2. Mold. Many air duct systems are located in a home’s basement which may often be wet, damp, or have experienced flooding. This moisture may cause mold and mildew to grow in and around the ductwork. Cleaning your HVAC will help eliminate any offensive odors and help reduce the potential for mold growth in the future.
3. Pets. Animal fur can get trapped in the vents and builds up living germs, fungus, and allergy-causing bacteria. The fur and dander can also hinder the efficiency of the HVAC system. Clumps of hair will slow down the airflow for the entire system if it allowed to build up.
4. Dust. If you start noticing an excessive amount of dirt and dust building up even after cleaning, it may be time for a professional. Homes built today will have drywall dust and construction debris in the ductwork before the owner even moves in.
5. 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 energy efficiency.
When dirt and debris are removed from ductwork, the fans and motors that power a furnace no longer need to work as hard to distribute air. Advising people to routinely get their air ducts inspected and serviced is important. Not only does this properly maintain a home, but it keeps the quality of indoor air as pure as possible. However, duct cleaning is not always necessary.
SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County’s Professionals routinely inspect the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC). We will make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. For more information on HVAC and air duct cleaning, call us today, (508) 234-3399.
Drapes & Blinds
SERVPRO of Northern Rhode Island excels at cleaning fine fabrics and intricate pieces using wet or dry cleaning methods as required.We carefully inspect and test fabrics to determine which of our System’s five cleaning methods is best suited to your fabrics. We use state-of-the-art equipment designed specifically for cleaning fine fabrics.
When Should My Drapes Be Cleaned?
A good rule-of-thumb is to clean drapes approximately every two years. A recent survey by SERVPRO disclosed that the average customer believes drapes should be cleaned when they look dirty. Depending on your heating system, the amount of smokers in the home, and other factors, drapes may not show soil for two to six years. The oily atmospheric soil will gradually cause the fabric to deteriorate. Often, direct sunlight is unjustly blamed for this. You may triple the life of your draperies through professional cleaning, which is relatively inexpensive compared to replacement costs.
When your draperies need cleaning, make certain they are dry cleaned ONLY. Only a small percentage of materials can be laundered. If in doubt, call us for advice. Be discriminating in your choice of professional dry cleaners. Some cleaners have equipment designed for clothes cleaning, while others have equipment specifically designed for draperies.
SERVPRO of Northern Rhode Island has an exclusive process of dry cleaning draperies right in your home. There’s no need to have your home or office exposed while your draperies are out being cleaned. We inject a specially formulated solvent into your drapery under pressure and extract the chemical, leaving your drapes clean. This special process results in no damage or shrinkage to the material. Most importantly, you will get quality cleaning at a reasonable price.

Cleaing for a buisness is different than cleaning a residential home.
We understand how essential draperies and blinds are to maintaining your family’s privacy. Here at SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County, we excel at cleaning the finest and most intricate pieces of fabric. Our staff is professionally qualified to carefully observe and inspect each drapery in order to determine which of our System’s five cleaning methods is best suited for your fabrics.
Buying draperies is no cheap order of business. Cleaning your draperies approximately every two years can potentially triple their lives and save you a considerable amount of money.
It is easy to think that much of the damage that deteriorates these fabrics is due to the direct sunlight that comes in through windows. Although this may seem like a viable answer, it is usually not the case. Depending on the heating system, amount of smokers in the home, etc., will contribute to the damage of the fabric due to the oily atmospheric soil that circulates throughout your home.
Vacuuming Your draperies
Vacuuming can be an essential role in prolonging the life of your draperies. It is a simple process that requires very little effort. To do this, you should 1) Remove the draperies, 2) Place them on a solid, flat surface 3) Go over them thoroughly with an upholstery brush. If the draperies have pleats and folds, a crevice attachment to your vacuum may be used to reach these tricky areas.
If you cannot get the job done with vacuuming, think about dry-cleaning your draperies. It is important to note that not all draperies can be laundered. If you have any doubts or questions regarding your own, do not hesitate to give us a call for advice. Also, choose your launderer wisely. Some cleaners are specifically designed for clothing, while others specialize in drapery fabrics.
