Cleaning Secrets

The secret to cleaning

The reality is there is no secret to cleaning, however the art of cleaning is all about being thorough. No matter what you intend to clean there are some key factors one must consider; what products are safe to use on the surface, can you actually get to the surface to be cleaned, wet or dry cleaning, what are you trying to remove?

Wet cleaning is the most effective but not all materials can withstand the moisture used so you may need to dry clean. Dry cleaning does not necessarily mean that there are no liquids involved just that there is no water used. You may be able to use solvents or scrub with a brush and vacuum to remove the soiling.  

When wet cleaning real the label on the product you are using, that is were the secrets are held. Manufactures of cleaning products test the solutions in many ways to find out what works best and will give you the information on the directions of the container. If your solution is too strong or too weak it will not work as good as it is designed to.  

In summary take your time and follow the label directions and remember that routine cleaning is faster and easier than letting things build up over time.

Staying safe

Staying safe during the pandemic

It is important that we all do our best to protect ourselves and others with the widespread reach of COVID19.

Keeping the germs at bay.

Remembering your mask, gloves and sanitizer.

The basics still work with this virus.

Cleanliness is the first line of defense with any illness or potential contaminate.  Regular cleaning of our hands and frequently touched surfaces can and will do more to slow the spread of viruses than anything else.

Hand and face coverings help when used correctly, keep your masks clean or use disposable face coverings. Gloves will also help when out and about. Take them off when returning to your vehicle making sure to turn them inside out without touching the outside of the gloves and properly dispose.

Keep yourself in good physical condition! Drink plenty of water and get your rest, you are at your best and the most resistant to infection or illness when you are healthy. The added bonus is a boost to your mental wellbeing when you are rested especially if you add physical exercise to your routine.

Stay safe, Stay healthy, and Stay happy!

When a little unseen water turns into a big problem

1/21/2020 (Permalink)

When you have a small leak or a little bit of water that is left unattended to it can turn into a BIG problem.  One of the most important factors that can turn a little water damage into a mold issue is time. When materials are left wet for an extended period of time the situation can deteriorate very quickly. We lose the opportunity to restore items affected by the water damage and often have to change gears into a removal process due to the effects of time. Mold is a scary word when it comes to your home or business, the good thing is that mold is avoidable with a fast response to water damage. This is why we are on call 24/7 to respond to your water emergency so we can prevent mold from ever happening. If the water damage was not found and mold has started, we are equipped with the trained staff and equipment to clean it up "Like it never even happened."

Avoiding Electrical Fires

1/21/2020 (Permalink)

Always unplug unused wires and plugs.

We all know that installing and maintaining a smoke detector is the best way to stay safe in case of a fire in your home, but you may be surprised to learn about the most common causes of electrical fires.  Here they are:

  1. Space heaters- Because space heaters are portable, many times people put them too close to combustible surfaces such as curtains, beds, clothing, chairs, couches and rugs. Coil space heaters are especially dangerous because the coils become so hot, they will almost instantaneously ignite any nearby flammable surface.
  2. Faulty outlets, appliances - Most electrical fires are caused by faulty electrical outlets and old, outdated appliances. Never use an appliance with a worn or frayed cord which can send heat onto combustible surfaces like floors, curtains, and rugs that can start a fire.
  1. Light fixtures- Light fixtures, lamps and light bulbs are another common reason for electrical fires. Installing a bulb with a wattage that is too high for the lamps and light fixtures is a leading cause of electrical fires. Always check the maximum recommended bulb wattage on any lighting fixture or lamp and never go over the recommended amount. Extension cords - Misuse of extension cords are another electrical fire cause. Appliances should be plugged directly into an outlet and not plugged into an extension cord for any length of time. Only use extension cords as a temporary measure.
  1. Wiring- Outdated wiring often causes electrical fires. If a home is over 20 years old, it may not have the wiring capacity to handle the increased amounts of electrical appliances in today’s average home.

Be sure to check today and make sure none of these dangers are in your home. In the unfortunate case of a fire, the professionals at SERVPRO of Visalia are on-call 24 hours a day to help.
