Improve Your Health By Improving Your Air Quality

Office Ductwork Air Duct Cleaning is pivotal to better air quality.

Allergy season is here. If you’re like many of us at SERVPRO of Boone County, you’re dealing with sniffles and sinus headaches too. Have you ever considered that part of your symptoms could be coming from your air ducts?

Your HVAC system circulates the air in your home anywhere from 5-7 times daily. Every time, it circulates microscopic allergens. Eventually, all of those tiny particulates build up and bring down your air quality. So if you’re one of the millions dealing with seasonal allergies cleaning your ducts could lessen the severity of your symptoms. 

When Should I Get My Ducts Cleaned?

It is recommended that you get your ducts cleaned at the changes of the season. More specifically, fall or spring. It is at these times that the most dramatic changes to the weather starts. Kentuckians that are allergic to Ragweed and mold may want to consider the fall. As the nights get cooler, many of us open our windows to enjoy the fresh air. Ragweed blooms in the fall. The pollen can travel for 100 miles entering our homes while the windows are open. Damp places are the favored homes of mold and mildew. Large piles of leaves are examples of those places. Duct cleaning can also keep your energy bill down over the winter. A clean system means your HVAC unit doesn’t have to work as hard to heat your home.  

The spring is also a good time because we are generally already spring cleaning our homes. We are kicking up dust by cleaning our knick-knacks, and; our houses have been closed up all season. Kick up your spring cleaning a notch by investing in duct cleaning. Our duct cleaning services will aid in removing dust, dust mites, and pet dander from your home.

It’s also advisable to have your ducts cleaned after most reconstruction projects. The dust that accumulates post-construction can be detrimental to your air quality. Duct cleaning can keep the particulates from circulating around your house. 

New homeowners should also consider getting their air ducts cleaned. This is especially true if the last time they were cleaned isn’t disclosed during the inspection. The idea of living in someone else’s dirty air does not sound appealing.  

How Often Should I Get My Air Ducts Cleaned?

A general rule of thumb is to clean your ducts at least every 4-5 years. However, certain lifestyles may require more frequent duct cleaning. For instance, animal lovers may need to have their ducts cleaned more often. This can help pet dander build up in the vents. Homeowners that smoke in their home may also want to have air ducts cleaned more regularly to battle the smell of nicotine. 

If you're questioning how often to clean your ducts, NADCA simply suggests regular inspections. This will take the guesswork out of whether or not you're due for an air duct cleaning.  

If you are ready to move forward with duct cleaning in your home SERVPRO is just a phone call away! You can breathe easy knowing that our franchise has a $500 Minimum that cleans up to 10 vents. That includes returns. Each vent after that is just 25 bucks. Call us to schedule your duct cleaning today!

Prevent Mold by Cleaning up Water As Soon As Possible

4/16/2021 (Permalink)

Mold on a basement wall To properly remediate the mold, SERVPRO had to cut out the affected drywall.

Water damage can happen at any time and for many different reasons. When homeowners or businesses leave it untreated, the potential for mold raises exponentially. That’s why SERVPRO suggests getting the water cleaned up within the first 48-72 hours.

Last month a Cincinnati resident called us for this very reason. Water flooded their basement, and it did not dry out properly. Mold had grown on their floors and walls. Our skilled professionals went in and demoed the affected walls and used air scrubbers to improve the overall air quality. We cleaned the wall studs and sprayed the affected areas with an antimicrobial to stop any further organic growth. 

If mold has taken up residence in your home, call us today for a free estimate. “We are always here to help.”

How to Clean Your Jetted Tub

3/10/2021 (Permalink)

Jacuzzi tub surrounded by hardwood flooring Maximize your relaxation.

Imagine this: You’re house hunting and you find a listing in an area you really like. You take a step through the front door and it has all of the aesthetics you desire. Then, you walk into the bathroom. The angels sing. Heaven shines down upon you, and the perfect whirlpool tub. You’re sold. You don’t need to look at any more houses.

The glorious day comes. You’re settled into your new home. You’re ready to wash away all of the stress from home buying. You’ve cleaned the tub, you’ve lit the candles, you have a glass of wine, and a good book to read. (Or your phone so you can scroll through tiktok.) 

You settle yourself into the tub relish the warm water, take a sip of wine. You turn on the jets, then, you see it. Slimy black mold flecks are floating to the surface. 

While it’s disgusting to see that in your bath water it doesn’t mean that you necessarily have a mold problem. In most cases, it just means that your jetted tub needs more maintenance than you realized. Bathtub maintenance isn’t hard, but it is an important step to keeping your bathroom mold and water intrusion-free. That’s why SERVPRO did some research to help you combat the day-to-day muck that builds up in your jetted tub.

Bobvila.com explains that the process is really quite simple. With just a few simple steps you can enjoy your jetted tub in no time!

Step 1: Soak your tub

If you haven’t cleaned your tub in a while we suggest starting there. It doesn’t have to be a thorough clean for this step. Just give it a quick wipe down and clean out any hair stuck in the drain. We’ll give a good scrub later. Then, fill up your tub with water a few inches above the last jet. After, let your tub soak with 2 cups of white vinegar. If you don’t have vinegar you can also mix half a cup of bleach and a few teaspoons of dishwasher detergent.

*Important note: Use Vinegar OR bleach, not both. Mixing the two can cause a toxic and deadly chemical reaction. 

Step 2: Run the Jets

Turn on the jets and let them run for 10-15 minutes. All the scum and mold will start to break from the surfaces and float to the top. After the time is up drain the water from the tub.

Step 3: Do It All Again

Whew! That was gross, wasn’t it? Now let’s do it again. Fill the tub back up with clean warm water. This time you don’t have to add any cleaner but go ahead and run the jets for another 10-15 minutes just to make sure you got everything.

Step 4: It’s the Final Wipe Down

Last but not least sprinkle some baking soda in your tub. Let it sit for a few minutes then gently wipe it down. This will get the last bits of soap scum and mold off of your tub. Grab a toothbrush that you use only for cleaning and clean carefully, but thoroughly, scrub around the jets themselves to get that last bit of scum off. A bottle brush would probably work here too if you have one in a horseshoe shape. Now you can rinse and relax!

During this process, if you find that you do have a large mold or water problem don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our estimators have years of experience and can help you come up with a price and game plan to fix the issue.

Tips and Tricks for Bathtub Maintenance 

2/1/2021 (Permalink)

As parents we know it’s bound to happen one day. We walk into the bathroom and find water all over the floor. Your kiddo has filled the tub too high and it’s overflowed. Or they’ve made too many waves and you find yourself surfing over to the tub to soak up the water with towels. If only bathtub issues stopped there. The unfortunate truth is that, like, toilets and sinks, parts in your bathtub get old, corroded, and clogged.   

Even Your Bathtub Needs Regular Maintenance

According to TheSpruce.com many of your bathtub issues can come from issues with your overflow tube. This is the mechanism that allows the water to flow down the drain rather than onto the floor. Here are just a couple of things to look out for.

  1. Calcification

Calcification can be a big problem especially if you live in an area with hard water. Luckily it’s an easy clean and you don’t even need heavy cleaners. Calcium deposits are easily wiped off with white vinegar. But if the problem is bad enough you may need to soak the mechanisms in the vinegar before they come off. 

  1. Mold or Mildew 

Mold and mildew may require a slightly tougher cleaner, and definitely require higher safety standards. That pesky little fungus can build up and form a film over the slit in the tub where the overflow tube sits. In this case, you may need to open up the mechanisms to clean it out. Otherwise, if the issue is too bad you may need to get help from a plumber. 

Another maintenance tip is to make sure that the seal in your bathtub is still effective. Over time the silicon can come away from the tub and the tile. This break in the seal can allow moisture to get behind the tub and the tile causing issues with the drywall. It’s best to check this seal at least once a year and replace it about every 5 years. If quarantine has you feeling like Mr. or Madame Fix-it, this is an easy repair to make yourself or you can call your local plumber or handyman to do it for you.

The last and most simple thing you can do for your tub is to make sure the tile, grout, and surface of your tub are clean. It’s best to clean the soap build-up and calcium deposits off at least once a month. This can help prevent a mildew buildup as well as clogged drains. While you're at it, don’t forget to check your drain for any clumps of hair stuck in the stopper. 

The professionals at SERVPRO of Boone County know how to help you in any scenario. Whether that be a bathtub overflow or mold remediation from a broken seal gone unnoticed. Call our office today for services or a free estimate. Someone is available 24/7 to assist you with your emergency needs.

SERVPRO Restores Contents After a Fire Loss

1/18/2021 (Permalink)

When a fire occurs in a home, the damage is not always contained to the immediate area of the fire. Conversely, smoke and soot travel throughout the property, leaving a trail of damage behind. We, at SERVPRO, understand that the personal belongings in a home are treasures of life that represent hard work and accomplishments. We know that the value of photographs, books, and other life mementos cannot be measured. That is why our fire technicians specialize in restoring contents damaged by fire and keep a "restore" versus "replace" mentality during the restoration process. After a fire, they take extra care to clean and restore the contents of the home to preloss condition.

In caring for the contents of a property after a fire, our technicians have expertise in:

  • Contents Restoration
  • Move Outs / Pack Outs
  • Electronic Cleanup
  • Document / Photograph Drying
  • Contents Claim Inventory Service

Our fire technicians know that a home fire is a very stressful situation for a homeowner and they strive to provide excellent customer service by working efficiently and professionally.

Happy New Year 2021!

12/30/2020 (Permalink)

New Year’s Day often means a fresh start and new resolutions for many. One important resolution, that could actually save lives, is to commit to being better prepared for emergencies.

Having a plan in place in case of disasters like storms, fires or floods can help save lives and the American Red Cross offers a few suggestions to help prepare your family or business in the case of an emergency.

First of all, put together an emergency kit for the home or the office. Suggested items to include in the kit are flashlights, non-perishable food and water, battery powered radio, extra batteries, first-aid items and extra cash.

Secondly, talk with family members or co-workers about what to do in the event of an emergency. Plan what to do if you are separated and choose a meeting place. Practice escaping your home or office twice a year. And don’t forget to include your pets in the plan!

And lastly, learn about the risks most prevalent to your area. For example, are earthquakes, tornadoes or hurricanes common in your area? Find out how to receive information from local officials in the event of an emergency. Learn first aid techniques so that you can respond before help arrives.

So, this year, make emergency preparation a part of your New Year’s resolutions and help protect the ones that you love! Stay safe in 2020! Be prepared!

Happy New Year from SERVPRO

Protect the Pipes During Cold Temperatures!

1/27/2020 (Permalink)

With the extremely cold temperatures that we sometimes experience in our area during the winter months, we often receive customer calls for water damage restoration due to frozen and burst pipes. In order to help prevent falling victim to such a water disaster, there are some precautions that can be taken:

  • Install insulation sleeves around exposed pipes that are prone to freezing.
  • Use caulking to seal any cracks or holes on outside walls and foundations near water pipes.
  • Keep cabinet doors open to allow warm air to circulate around pipes.
  • Keep slow trickles of water flowing through the faucets.
  • Drain water from sprinkler systems and pool supply lines.
  • Remove and drain garden hoses.

If, even after taking these precautions, you do experience water damage to your property, always remember that the SERVPRO of Boone County water technicians are Here to Help! We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to your water restoration needs.

Protect Yourself from the Flu!

1/13/2020 (Permalink)

During flu season, the office is the prime location for the spread of germs. And studies have shown that the quickest way for the virus to spread is when people touch and infect commonly used items and surfaces like doorknobs, desktops, copy machines, and coffee pots! The flu virus can last up to 24 hours on surfaces and this makes it easy to spread through human contact.

There are several ways to help protect yourself from the flu:

  • Get a flu shot.
  • Frequently wash your hands.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently used items.

We are hosting a Greater Cincinnati Insurance Board continuing education insurance credit course entitled, “In’s & Out’s of the CGL Policy” This seminar will cover the various aspects of the Commercial General Liability policy. It will review definitions, policy structure, insuring agreement, exclusions, coverages, coverage triggers, and duty to defend. ISO forms will be used as the basis of the presentation. One of the most frequent problem areas is the idea that a contractual requirement to add an additional insured to an insurance policy is the same as a contractual hold harmless or indemnification agreement. While both clauses frequently appear in the same contract, they are separate and distinct from one another. The recent Oio Supreme Court decision about faulty workmanship of subcontractors will also be discussed.

The instructor for this course is Tom Ryan, AIC and it is approved for 3 credit hours in OHIO and KENTUCKY. The course will take place at our Cincinnati, Ohio location at 2115 Schappelle Lane, Cincinnati, OH on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. from 12:30pm to 3:30pm.
