Carpet cleaning is a science. PH balances, when altered, will set stains and quickly change the appearance & health of your carpets. It is of utmost importance to have the proper level of heat to clean carpets, the proper cleaning product(s) to remain PH neutral and then a proper extraction system to remove the contaminants, bacteria, allergens and other sources that soil and breakdown the fibres that make up your carpet. Our systems produce the high heat you need to do a proper clean, (synthetic carpets require upwards of 200 degrees – this cannot be achieved with anything but a high quality truck mounted unit), along with an extraction system that removes as much moisture as possible. We leave your carpets clean, soft and inviting. By investing in our carpet cleaning services for your home or business you can breathe new life into your carpets, say goodbye to stains and improve your health and the health of your carpets!
Furnace & Duct Cleaning
Your furnace and ducts collect dust, allergens, hair and debris, and over time this can reduce the effectiveness of the system as well as be harmful to your health. When your furnace and duct system is not working at peak performance it will be using more energy and causing extra strain on the heating system. This should be cleaned every 1.5 – 2 years, (depending on kids and pets present as well as any renovations done to the property), to remove this buildup and restore a healthy breathing environment to your home or work. With our professional furnace and duct cleaning, you can prolong your furnace’s life, save on your energy bill and enjoy a cleaner home environment.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Cleaning your dryer vents is a serious issue! According to the National Fire Protection Association, nearly 15,970 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year. These clothes dryer fires cause an estimated 13 deaths, 440 injuries, and $238 million in property loss. Unsurprisingly, the leading cause of these fires, at 34%, is the failure to clean dryer vents. If your dryer seems to be taking longer and longer to dry your clothes or your clothes aren’t completely dry after its cycle it is usually a sign that there is significant lint build-up in your dryer vent. This is something that should be done annually or semi-annually depending on how often you use your dryer. We specialize in dryer vent cleaning in homes and condos up to 4 stories. We use compressed air and special tools that remove this dangerous fire hazard. Clean dryer vents save you time and money and give you peace of mind.
Signs of a clogged dryer vent:
• A musty odor is discovered in the clothing following the drying cycle
• Clothes seem unusually hot to the touch
• Excessive heat is noticed in the room in which the washer and dryer are operated
• The dryer vent hood flap does not open properly when you use the dryer or it stays open always (this is the slitted vent opening to the exterior of your home)
• Debris is noticed within the outside dryer vent opening
• Large amounts of lint build-up in the lint trap during each cycle
• Odor noticed from dryer sheets used during the drying cycle
• You notice birds entering one or more of your vents
Tile & Grout Cleaning
Though you might find it easy to clean your tiles, grout is a whole other matter. Grout is more porous, meaning it will soak up oils and dirt over time, making them look and feel dirty. (Take a look in your kitchen or bathroom and see the difference between the traffic areas and the areas closest to the walls – looks like a different, darker color!) With our tile & grout cleaning services, we can make your floors look like new and seal them so that they stay that way for much longer
Noxious odors are an unwanted issue whether it is from a fire, cigarette smoke, marijuana, skunk, sewage, urine, diesel – the list of smells that can plague a property are endless! We use a process that we call Vapor Cleanse. It is fumigation of the enclosed space using ClO2, (Chlorine Dioxide), which is the most effective sanitizing agent known. (*not to be confused with Ozone or other cover-up treatments that can be harmful to your health and the environment as well as not deliver proper results). The process will sanitize all hard and soft surfaces in the enclosed area. For homes this takes approx 10-12 hours, vehicle’s usually in under 2 hours. Once the process is complete there will be no noxious bacteria, completely sanitized – leaving the area fresh and clean.
We use this process for many realtors, homeowners, vehicle owners, sports facilities/locker rooms and property managers that are dealing with unwanted smells and harmful bacteria. It is also used to kill things like Anthrax, HIV and MRSA to name a few others. We guarantee that we can remove the smell in less than a day!
