Carpet Cleaning On A Regular Basis

15-off-cleaning

The Importance of carpet cleaning on a regular basis

In case you own a home or a business with carpet, then you know that your carpets can get dirty and require carpet cleaning to keep them looking their best. However, apart from just being clean there are plenty of other factors at to why you need to have a regular carpet cleaning.

carpet cleaning BETTER

1. dirty carpet not only looks horrible but could also harbor lots of bacteria and germs. Those germs and bacteria can cause individuals in the house to become sick more often and will influence quality of air as well. Specific illnesses such as asthma can be activated and worsened by the germs and bacteria in dirty carpet. Therefore, if you desire to be healthier and have better indoor air quality it is wise to have your carpet cleaned on a regular basis!

carpet_flooring

2. Odor is another common problem that could be easily traced back to dirty carpet. The odor is once again brought on by bacteria and also dirt as well as other particles held in the fibers. Especially if you are a pet owner. The pollen coming from their bodies and their fur could work its way to the carpet which the basic vacuuming can’t remove it all. This pet dander and fur build up can cause an odor as time passes.

Carpet-cleaning

As you can see just vacuuming your dirty carpets regularly will suffice. In order to have truly clean, odor free, and clean air you need to have consistent carpet cleaning service! The number of times you will get them cleaned is perfectly up to you however each 3-6 months is a good rule of thumb.

Clean Ducts Are Important For Health

Duct Cleaning Advantages

Indoor air pollution is now listed by the Environmental Protection Agency (www.epa.gov) as the fourth greatest environmental threat to Americans. When your heating and cooling system is running, airborne contaminants are being drawn into your duct system. Over a period of time, these harmful contaminants will eventually build up inside your air ducts.

untitled

Indoor contaminants may include: dust mites, tobacco smoke, household mold, chemicals, airborne allergens, bacteria, animal dander and carbon monoxide. These contaminants are then circulated thoughout your home or office and effect the health and comfort of you, your family, or your employees.

clean

Having your air ducts cleaned, can help ellimate these problems.

1. Reduce Dusting

Source removal duct cleaning can help to reduce household dust by removing the dust where it travels most – through your air duct system.

2. Improve Indoor Air Quality

According to the EPA, indoor air is found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air. Air duct cleaning by Advanced Air Care can remove airborne contaminates such as bacteria, fungus, mold spores, pet dander & pollen which may help to alleviate allergy & asthma symptoms.

3.Save Energy & Save Money

According to the EPA, a build up of only .042 inches of dirt on a heating coil can result in a decrease of efficiency of 21%. A clean air conveyance system may help to increase efficiency and therefore may help to reduce heating and cooling costs.

4.Extended Equipment Life

9 out of 10 system failures are caused by dirt and dust. One of the functions of the fan, located inside of your air handler, is to keep the heat exchanger cool. Accumulated dirt and debris can reduce the CFM (cubic feet of air per minute) as much as 50%. This is the most common cause of cracks in heat exchangers. By having your system cleaned, you may prevent pre-mature breakdown & aging of your heating and cooling system.

Steel vs. Wood Garage Doors

Is your garage door sagging, almost impossible to lift, or just generally falling apart? If it is, maybe now is the time to replace it with a new one that’s easy to operate and maintain.

Not only can a new garage door provide safe, secure, and easy access to your garage, but it also can renew and refresh your property’s overall appearance, particularly if it can be seen from curbside.  With the technology today, doors have been made to help save money by reducing utility costs.

imagesYCMW7GH7

Garage doors are made from steel, wood and wood composites, fiberglass, vinyl, and aluminum. Though each of these has its benefits, steel and wood doors are by far the most common.

• Wood is a classic because of its natural beauty, availability, and easy customization. But it just doesn’t last as long as other materials and thus requires fairly consistent care.

• Steel garage doors have become very popular because they’re strong, relatively inexpensive, and low maintenance. In addition, state-of-the-art steel garage doors do an excellent job of imitating the look of wood.

images6N7RGLA9

In addition to the use of an increasingly broader selection of durable materials for their manufacture, garage doors have become high-tech, with high-performance insulation and energy-saving glazing, finished interior surfaces, baked-on exterior finishes and more. Some non-wood doors have been given very realistic wood grain surfaces that will accept a stain—it is hard to differentiate between these and real wood.

If you are trying to decide between wood or steel, the advantages of steel are outweighing wood.  Steel lasts longer, and is less maintenance.  And if you can get the same look as wood, why not go the steel route?

untitled

In terms of style, carriage-house garage doors have become very popular because of their classic look. For a sleek, translucent contemporary look, aluminum framed doors with opaque glass panels are hard to beat. You will want to make sure to do a sample test of the colors next to the exterior of your home before making your decision. Never make the decision in a warehouse. The lighting can be slightly deceptive, and once the doors are up, it’s difficult to change your mind. Always use the natural lighting at your property when testing samples.

Depending on your environment, one style may suit your needs better!

HiCaliber can assist in helping you find an honest local company for farage doors.  We have built many homes in the southern Utah area.  We can even help guide you in the right direction when making the final decision on material and color.  Call us 435-674-9338

Why Are Home Inspections Important?

A home inspection is an all-encompassing examination of the condition of a home.   The home inspection process is often but not always performed at the time of the sale of the home. A home is one of the most important purchases one will ever make.  A home inspection is an inexpensive way to discover the universal condition of a home.  It is important to conduct a home inspection to avoid a costly mistake by purchasing a property in need of major repairs.  Even if you think you have found a “dream home,” it is a home inspector’s responsibility to let you know that your “dream home” may not be just right.
