Carpets and Upholstery Cleaning

6/4/2021 (Permalink)

Carpets and Upholstery Cleaning

Even the highest-quality carpet and upholstery can show soiling over time. Protect your investment by calling us to clean and maintain your carpet and upholstery. The SERVPRO System offers a number of cleaning options to match any type of upholstery or carpet.

Need Carpet or Upholstery Cleaning?

Call Today – (210) 610-6800

We also offer a range of specialized cleaning methods:

  • Bonnet Cleaning: A less aggressive method for short piled carpets.
  • Hot Water Extraction: A deeper cleaning method for all carpet types.
  • Deluxe Precondition and Rinse: Helps restore deeply soiled areas.
  • Showcase Premier Cleaning: The most thorough cleaning method in the industry.
  • Dry Cleaning: When color-fastness is an issue.

Preventative Maintenance

Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.

IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.

Preventative maintenance actions include:

  • Regular vacuuming
  • Spot removal
  • Piloting the carpet to prevent matting
  • Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
  • Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet

Professional Cleaning

Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.

We will get the job done right. For a cleaning backed by state-of-the-art equipment, over 40 years of experience and Professionals trained to the highest standards, call us today. SERVPRO of Universal City/St. Hedwig is here to help you. (210) 610-6800.

Everyday Molds

6/2/2021 (Permalink)

Mold can cause health effects.

Everyday Molds

In this blog, I would like to address the everyday occurrence of good and normal molds so that we can clarify that all molds are not bad.

Good molds are molds that help make cheese, wines, and medicines. Most people really don't realize the products that would not be possible without good molds.

Normal molds are airborne mold spores and surface mold growth. Airborne mold spores are just a naturally occurring phenomena that get into our homes through open doors, open windows, and even on our clothes. These molds are considered normal as long as they did not originate within the home. What makes normal mold normal is that it is growing on a non-porous surface that cannot be a sustainable food source and it can be cleaned with normal house cleaning methods.

I hope that this somewhat clarifies the differences in molds and gives you a better understanding of what to look for.

For any questions or if you need us to look at an issue, please call SERVPRO of Universal City/St. Hedwig at (210) 610-6800.

Understanding Stove Top Fires

6/2/2021 (Permalink)

Be safe while you cook.

 Understanding Stove Top Fires

The best advice that I can give if a fire occurs on your stove top is to remain calm and remember the following tips:

* Always have a lid close by that can be placed on a burning pot. Even a cookie sheet that covers the pot will work. If a fire occurs, cover the pot, then turn the stove off. Don't peek! Let it cool completely down.

* Do not pick up a burning pot. Dropped and spilled hot food and burning oil can cause serious and tragic burns.

* Do not put water on a burning pot. This can make things much worse.

* You can use a fire extinguisher, but only if you know how to. Did you ever read the instructions? Or look at the manufacturers video on how to use? You probably should before you ever have to use one. You could make things worse!

* If the fire is too big or for whatever reason you are unsure if it can be contained, then get everyone outside and call 911.

After the fire is out, call SERVPRO of Universal City/St. Hedwig at (210) 610-6800 to walk the property with you and access the damage. Our team of professionals will help you restore your home and belongings and help you deal with insurance professionals.
