SERVPRO Los Osos Reports About The Benefits Of Professional Residential Cleaning Services

8/29/2019 (Permalink)

Even with regular tidying and cleaning the typical household vacuum and carpet cleaner are rarely industrial enough for deep thorough cleaning that a home needs now and then. Once in awhile, it’s nice to have someone come in, move the furniture and get those nooks and crannies and overhead shelves and Joe Powers of SERVPRO, the Los Osos water damage specialists, has some tips about the benefits of deep cleaning.

When does a home need a deep cleaning? This answer depends on the how often a homeowner or renter wants a cleaning that gets deep into carpets, drapes and upholstery and leaves no damp, soggy spots behind. Professional services can include cleaning the HVAC system, removing strange looking spots from carpets and upholstered furniture, and eliminating persistent odors.

Basically, any time is a good time for a deep, thorough cleaning. Along with the usual “spring cleaning,” or preparing a home for the holidays or a special event, other circumstances include:

  • Preparing the home for sale
  • Cleaning up after tenants or a hoarding situation
  • Periodic deep cleaning to help with allergies and respiratory conditions
  • Cleaning carpets, upholstery, even floors and walls after a prolonged illness
  • Toilet and sewage overflow
  • Water and mold damage
  • Fire damage
  • Trauma or crime scene clean up

Kids spill food and drinks, pets have accidents, and dust, dirt and odd odors invade even the cleanest spaces. Grime (and other surprises) pile up behind refrigerators, stoves and the washer and dryer. Life happens and deep cleaning can range from deeper regular cleaning, to removing biohazard contaminants, and removing trash and junk from a hoarding situation. Biohazard removal, which can include blood, vomit, urine, feces and contaminated materials, is beyond the scope of the average housecleaning service.

A recent article in Health eNews cites the following reasons for keeping a house clean:

  • Lowering stress and fatigue
  • Reducing allergy and asthma symptoms
  • Improving safety
  • Lessening the spread of germs
  • Keeping pests away

The professional teams from companies such as SERVPRO have been thoroughly trained for cleaning up a wide range of situations. These professionals have all of the safety gear required for working with contaminated materials, all of the supplies and equipment for thorough cleaning and decontamination.

Whether the home is just ready for a deep general cleaning, or has been damaged or contaminated, the SERVPRO experts are the people to call.
