Clean Me! – 3 Most Overlooked Places in Your Home (and Office)

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

Everyone is well aware of the cleaning needs that exist for kitchens of bathrooms. However, do you stop and consider the cleaning needs of other high-touch areas. We are talking about elements of the house (or office) that affect your breathing, touch your skin, and are shared by every creature using the property. As you learn about the three most overlooked places in your home where regular professional cleaning is needed, ask yourself, “when was the last time I had this cleaned?”

  • Air Duct/HVAC System- “Out of sight, out of mind” is the challenge here. The majority of a property’s HVAC system is hidden in walls, attics, and basements. Just because you do not see it, does not mean it does not need cleaning. Heating/cooling systems are the lungs of your home. Air is circulated 5 to 7 times per day. A typical six-room home generates up to 40 pounds of dust per year. Professional air duct cleaning can improve indoor air quality by removing built up contaminants and air pollutants in the system. We recommend professional air duct cleaning every 1-3 years.
  • Furniture- You sit on it, play on it, work on it, nap on it. It gets a ton of activity and is shared by many. It is furniture. It could be your living room sofa or conference room chairs at your work. The fabric of these objects collects dust, dirt, spills, and oils. Have you ever slammed your hand down on an armrest of a couch? Have you ever seen that disgusting cloud of dust burst forth from the fabric? That is an extreme example, but still goes to show the need for professional furniture and upholstery cleaning on a regular basis. We recommend professional furniture cleaning every 1-2 years.
  • Carpets- Most people are pretty good about cleaning their carpets if there is a spill or pet accident. However if those incidents do not occur, what is prompting them to get their carpets cleaned on a regular basis? Think of carpeting as a filter. On one hand, they are very good at trapping and immobilizing dust and unwanted airborne particulates. Like all filters, they can become clogged and rendered ineffective. Regular vacuuming will maintain a certain level of cleanliness, but professional carpet cleaning is still needed on a routine basis to deep extract imbedded dirt and contaminants. We recommend professional carpet cleaning every 6 – 18 months.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
