Is your HVAC unit ready for this summer?

Give your HVAC unit a tune-up

It is that time of year when the temperatures are rising outside and you are thinking about turning on the air-conditioning for the first time this season. There are a few things you should know to help maintain your HVAC unit as we get closer to the hotter days of summer.

Start off by making sure you set the unit to cold. Sounds obvious. But the last time you may have looked at it, you were running the heat.  Next, take a look at the outdoor unit. Is  it clear of debris.? As we transition into the summer months, be sure to remove any obstructions.  Have your heating and cooling system inspected by a qualified service professional at least once a year to be sure that it is running at optimal efficiency and to diagnose any potential problems. This is a great time to add any additional Freon your unit may be lacking or make any repairs to the system before you put it into overdrive this summer. Remember to replace the air filters on your HVAC unit at least every 90 days to prolong its life and increase its efficiency. This also helps limit the allergen in the air. As you are conducting this annual upkeep, consider having your air ducts cleaned each season as well. This is a service that our team at SERVPRO of North Cabarrus County & China Grove can help you out with. Cleaner air means easier breathing. Also dirty systems work harder and use more energy. Our trained professionals can provide cleaning services that restore peak energy efficacy, eliminate offensive odors and improve the indoor air quality of your home.  So before you crank up the air this summer, make sure you call the team at SERVPRO of North Cabarrus County & China Grove help you get your HVAC unit in check.

Air Ducts and HVAC Cleaning

Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. Make it a priority to inspect the ductwork of your home or business.

If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating one or more of the following:

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Odors
  • Dirt and debris
  • Other contaminants

SERVPRO of North Cabarrus County & China Grove Professionals routinely inspect the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC).  Keeping them clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can in turn save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe.

 However, duct cleaning is not always necessary. We will make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your system.

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.

Spring Cleaning

‘Tis the season for spring cleaning!

The worst of winter is over, we have changed the clocks, flowers are blooming and pollen is in the air. It is time to start tackling those household items on your to-do lists. We know that it may not be the most exciting task undertaking spring cleaning in your home, so make your life a little easier this year and consider calling SERVPRO of North Cabarrus County & China Grove to help you cross carpet cleaning off your list.

Most people know SERVPRO of North Cabarrus County & China Grove as a leader in Fire and Water Cleanup and Restoration, but our professional residential cleaning services can make a dirty home as good as new. We have the industry experience and expertise to provide a deeper clean than your basic home cleaning service. Our hot water extraction process allows our professional carpet cleaning to address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. Our state-of-the-art equipment removes trapped soils and dirt from deep within your carpet’s pile and backing. Generally, a good rule of thumb is to have your carpets professionally clean every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until your carpets look dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their original appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, so when a carpet looks dirty, you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. But there is more dirt hiding below the surface, down near the base of the pile, actually causing damage to your carpet. When the carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and becomes firmly lodged.  Even the highest-quality carpet can show soiling over time. Decide to protect your investment by calling our team to clean and maintain your carpet. We also specialize in stain removal and offer stain resistance applications for an added level of protection to your carpets daily traffic and wear and tear. Give our team a call and cross carpet cleaning off your list of things to-do! - 704-939-1944

Have you ever wondered how Ozone Removal Works?

5/29/2018 (Permalink)

A common question people have about using ozone is exactly how an ozone machine is able to remove odors from houses and/or businesses.  Basically, ozone removes odor by destroying the molecules, bacteria, and spores that cause unpleasant smells.

 Ozone (O3) is a highly reactive molecule that is very quick to chemically react with particles it comes into contact with.  Ozone is able to penetrate into air, walls, ceilings, ductwork, carpet fibers, gaps between floorboards, and cracks in walls areas thereby destroying odors that it finds there by breaking down odor-causing molecules in any area where air is allowed to flow. The extra oxygen atom in the ozone attaches itself to other molecules, chemically changing their structure to create non-offensive molecules – eliminating the smell.
