When should you get your carpet cleaned?

Servpro of Martin County cleaning a carpet When should you get your carpet cleaned?

Carpets are a beautiful addition to your home: they decorate the floors with your own personal stamp, from bright to neutral colors, from rustic to fancy, from solid to uniquely patterned.

However, they also require proper care to look their best. If you don’t vacuum and wash it often enough, your carpet will become full of dust, dander, and even germs. And if it’s neglected for too long, it can be hard or even impossible to restore it to its original color and texture.

The problem is that carpets, unlike other materials, don’t show well how dirty they are. The surface may not look dirty, but the base has already started to accumulate pollutants. By the time the surface appears dirty enough to warrant cleaning, the dirt and grime are so deep-seated that the carpet will still look dull and dingy even after cleanup.

Therefore, a visual inspection is not a good measure for when your carpet needs to be cleaned. The rule of thumb for cleaning a carpet is:

  • Spot cleaning: as soon as they’re noticed.
  • Vacuuming: once per week.
  • Deep cleaning: once per year.

However, keep in mind that not all households are the same, and some may need to have more regular cleaning. Families with children, pets, or smokers would do better vacuuming twice a week and deep cleaning every six months. Cases of extreme traffic and dirt require vacuuming four times a week and deep cleaning every three months.

The best way to know how often you should clean your carpet is by asking a carpet cleaning professional, like SERVPRO of Martin County. An expert will consider not only the traffic your carpet receives, but also the material and even the warranty of the carpet.

A carpet cleaning professional will not only clean your carpets thoroughly, following quality standards, but they will also know the best method for cleaning your carpet, like hot water extraction or dry cleaning.

If you live in Stuart, Hobe Sound, Jensen Beach, Palm City, or any other city of the Martin County area, you can call the SERVPRO of Martin County experts for professional carpet cleaning.

The SERVPRO of Martin County carpet and upholstery cleaning service will not only get out the dirt you see, but will also remove the unwanted dust you don’t. A professionally cleaned carpet and furniture may make all the difference in brightening up a room and freshening up your home or business.

Get your carpet professionally cleaned and watch it gleam again!

Has your house or business ever been on fire?

We hope it was not your scenario, but, if it has happened, you already know how hard restorations can turn. One of the most common struggles that keeps on consuming large sums of property, money and lives is fire. However, return to normal activities is possible with a company specialized in fire restoration training to restore your business or home to pre-fire condition.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The restoration process start when you call us. Our representative will ask questions regarding the fire damage event and that way we will respond immediately with the appropriate equipment and resources. 

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We cautiously inspect and test connecting rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. We use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

We also have a specialized fire and water damage cleanup team, which is professionally trained and equipped to restore all spaces to an even better condition they were before fire.

Safety tips to avoid fire damage on Valentine’s Day

Room with fire damage Safety tips to avoid fire damage on Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, couples all around the United States are getting ready for a romantic candlelit dinner with their loved one.

We want to make sure that the only flame burning bright that day is the flame of your love. That’s why we present you with 5 safety tips to avoid fire damage on Valentine’s Day.

  1. Candles are very romantic, but they can become the source of a fire if proper precautions are not taken. Keep them at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn (drapes, loose paper, decorative items), place them on sturdy candle holders, and never leave them burning while you’re away from the room.
  2. If you want the relaxing smell of a candle to help you set the mood, you can use wickless candles, which warm up the wax without flame. However, check your electrical connection and supervise the candle for at least 30 seconds after turning on the candle to make sure that it works properly, as they have been known to cause explosions.
  3. Mylar helium balloons are a beautiful way to decorate your Valentine’s dinner, but you need to make sure they can’t fly away. The outer material of these balloons conducts electricity, which makes them explode when in contact with power lines. The effects could be as light as sparks or as big as knocking down a power line, creating an outage.
  4. Preparing a romantic dinner is a beautiful gesture for your significant other, but love should not make you forget the necessary precautions while cooking, like leaving unsupervised food on the stove or oven. Never try to cook the food without defrosting it first: ice will expand and create steam, which can lead to a fire or burns.
  5. Before you start setting up the decorations, check that the fire alarm system is working properly. Doing this will ensure that you can remediate any fire before it’s too late.

We hope these safety tips are enough to avoid fire damage on Valentine’s Day. If you or a friend should be unlucky enough to get a fire during their celebration, don’t worry! Just call SERVPRO® of Martin County, we’ll be faster to any size disaster!

We work really hard to give the best support and service, making this process as easier as possible for you and your family. When you find yourself in this situation, you should call us as soon as possible in order to damage restoration be easier and cheaper.

First of all we have to make a balance of the damage caused by fire, smoke and water (from firefighting efforts). We’ll start by asking you questions about the fire and the extent of the damage on the phone, and then we’ll send SERVPRO technicians to do an assessment.

We have a specialized fire and water damage cleanup team, which is professionally trained and equipped to restore all spaces to an even better condition they were before fire. Our purpose is to make you feel stress-free about all the restoration because you are on really good hands and everything will go back to normality as soon as possible!
