Floors and carpet clean?? let us do it for you

How clean is your home?  Are odors in your home from being closed up all winter?  Do you smoke inside your home?  Do you have kids or pets?   

Any of these things are applicable to you then listen up . While most homes can be cleaned or freshened up by you, there are times where it is best to bring in the professional.  The cleanliness of a home is said by 80% of home owners to be determined by how clean their floors are yet only 15% have their carpets cleaned yearly. So I ask you again how clean is your home?

Lingering odors can be traced to numerous issues in and around your home that can be hazardous to you, your family and pets. Most home remedies can mask or provide a temporary solution to the issue. They will come back and just be covered up instead. It does not eliminate the hazard and so it remains while you think the problem has been solved.

There are 4 general rules of getting rid of unpleasant smells.

  1. Locate and destroy the source of the smell

  2. Thoroughly clean any surfaces or items that were affected by the source

  3. Assess types of materials and cleaning products needed for each

  4. Spray and Treat the area to deodorize the air and seal any remaining odors

The areas that see the most odor damage are  carpets are often a primary spot for odors to take root, furniture, clothing, and drywall may also take on the scent if they are exposed long enough. These surfaces must be cleaned to prevent the smell from coming back. Every material has its own physical properties and professionals will be able to properly asses which cleaning and sealant products will best result in a permanent solution. They will clean the surfaces of all areas and then they will seal the rest in with special sprays.  Due to smells being transferred through the air so sealing the odors away for good will eliminate their further spread through your home.  

Many odors can be eliminated with the use of a professional such as, urine from pet and childern, mold from water damage you tried to clean up yourself, smoke and fire damage, Cigarette smoke,  Closed house  from the winter and many other sources. The scope of the work is not a problem large or small they will be able to help you eliminate the odor and get you back to normal.
