4 Tips for Keeping Bugs Out of Your Home Come Spring

3/4/2019 (Permalink)

Don't find yourself with new unwelcome roommates when spring thaws the winter ice!

Every year after winter has come and gone, bugs come out of hibernation and are looking for places to feed and mate. They look for moist, dark places to call home, and your home is often the prime real estate. Whether it’s ants, cockroaches, or other creepy crawlies, there’s plenty that we can do to help keep them out of our homes! SERVPRO of Brunswick has put together some tips for you to help keep your home pest free.

Cleanliness is The Best Deterrent

Insects like to find dark, cluttered places to call home and multiply. Do your part and make sure that you are on top of your cleaning to make sure that the insects can’t take up residence in your home. Spring cleaning is a fantastic time to remove habitable conditions from your home from the insects, so make sure to stay on top of that!

Always Check the Screen Doors

Another item that often goes overlooked is the screen door/screens for windows. It’s important to check for cracks or openings before spring comes around to ensure that no bugs can make a break for your home. If you happen to find any holes in the screen doors, do your part and plan to repair them as soon as possible! The last thing you want is an unintentional bug infestation because one tiny hole was overlooked.

Food Management 

One big offense that people oftentimes find themselves doing is leaving food out in the open. If you or your family have a bad habit of leaving food out on the counter overnight, or leaving food open in the pantry, don’t! This is a prime resource for bugs to get inside of your home. The moment that one insect finds some leftovers out in the open or the pantry, it’s game over. Soon they’ll be all over it! Make sure to discard or refrigerate any food that is being left out.

Removing Unnecessary Water

Finally, one of the least known components of a bug problem is water. If there is any kind of leak anywhere, or somewhere that has a dark and damp surface, bugs are attracted to it. Do your best to ensure that any leaks are fixed immediately and that standing water is not left out in the open for too long. Cleaning these areas immediately will persuade the insects to seek refuge elsewhere. This is prime breeding grounds for these bugs, don’t let them have a chance to get comfortable and settle!

If you find a leak or water damage in your Spring cleaning. Call SERVPRO of Brunswick to make it "Like it never even happened."

Deodorization services can rid your office of awful odors!

Unpleasant smells in workplace environments are distracting and unpleasant. They can, also, lead to all types of negative consequences. Stubborn odors can reduce productivity, and they can make employees feel unwell. Bad smells can contribute to headaches that aren't conducive to workplace success. The occasional stinky lunch may not affect everyone for more than a few hours, but real odors can signal a problem.

Our SERVPRO team has significant experience with the odor removal process. Our technicians understand and make use of all the most effective deodorization techniques.

A Carpet Cleaning Checklist for Your Home

3/6/2018 (Permalink)

After the long winter, it’s probably time to have your carpets cleaned. The kids, the spouse, Rover, and the relatives have been tramping in and out all through the season, and even though everybody, except Rover, wipes their feet, your carpets are suffering.

Here is a checklist of things you need to consider when planning your carpet cleaning:

  • Do you want to DIY, or call a professional? Take stock of the time it will demand to clean your carpets thoroughly. A professional cleaning company such as our SERVPRO of Brunswick team can have it done while you’re at work!
  • A professional company has the experience and the expertise to handle anything that might come up. They will have access to the best equipment possible.
  • The most efficient of technologies, such as hot water extraction, are available to a company that has cleaning expertise - speeding up the process considerably, by the way.
  • Before we start, we do a complete analyzation of your carpet situation to make sure we are knowledgeable concerning your unique carpet needs. A house with a pet is going to need different treatment than a house without, even if Rover is very polite!
  • Because we can accelerate your dry time, you can come home from work and relax, as long as you take your shoes off!
  • No carpet is stain proof; even though all carpets sold today have some sort of anti-stain treatment applied, these treatments wear off over time. Professional cleaning companies can remove almost all household stains. If they cannot, it’s time for new carpet.
  • If your house is smelling musty, a deep cleaning should take care of it. But keep in mind that SERVPRO of Brunswick is experienced in mold detection and remediation, so we can keep an eye out for your health and safety.

Call us here at SERVPRO of Brunswick: (912) 264 6094 or visit our website at SERVPRO of Brunswick for all your carpet cleaning needs! We also handle fire and water damage.

On The Importance of Replacing Your Cleaning Supplies

1/10/2018 (Permalink)

Keep a close watch on your cleaning supplies, Brunswick!

Maintaining a home or office and keeping it clean and bright is an endless job. The day-to-day work of having a place kept clean for a family or a group of employees takes a lot of energy. It also requires attention to detail and a ready stock of soaps, scrubbers, and bottles of Windex. As any homemaker or professional cleaner knows, you can never clean enough! This is especially true in a home with small children and/or pets, as well as in a busy office where late night meetings often need extra food.

A Constant Cleaning Vigil

Keeping that home or office clean requires constant cleaning vigilance. It’s amazing how many dust bunnies can creep in under an office sofa or a living room couch. Though we all love our pets, the person in charge of keeping a pet environment clean may be forgiven for viewing the family cat or dog as a walking dust bunny. The trail of fur and dust one pet can leave around a home is amazing, but again, that’s why the cleanliness gods invented fur brushes and dust mops.

Restocking Supplies

One of the keys to keeping that home or office clean, bright, and smelling fresh is to keep the stock of cleanup supplies fresh, on a weekly basis. There’s nothing worse than confronting a serious pet mess or the aftermath of a late night office meeting (with Chinese takeout) and then realizing the Windex bottle is empty. Forgetting to restock is what makes these soul-killing cleanup crises more serious than they need to be. So be sure to pay attention to those supplies and refresh them.

Calling in Cleanup Reinforcement

If the rigors of constant cleanup become daunting, it may be wise to consider bringing in professional help, from a top-flight cleanup service like SERVPRO of Brunswick. SERVPRO is staffed by a dedicated and well-trained group of pros who know how to rehabilitate a messy home or office and get it looking spic and span in no time.

So if you’re confronting a cleanup job that’s too big to handle alone, call in SERVPRO of Brunswick.
