What is Green Cleaning?

shutterstock_516786259-1

 

Products that are used frequently to clean homes are also filled with chemicals that you probably don’t want near your family. Most people are in such a rush that they don’t take the time to pay attention to the chemicals that are inside of the cleaners they use. As a professional restoration company we only use green methods to restore homes to their original condition.

Healthier than Other Cleaners

Green cleaning products are beneficial because when you use harmful chemicals they often linger in the air and on surfaces. These products will later on be ingested by other people in the home, whether they breathe them in or they soak in through their skin. These harmful cleaners can even lead to the development of asthma in those who use them regularly.

Better Air Quality

Cleaners often fill your home with the smell of chemicals that linger for weeks at a time. Green cleaning products are made with natural and essential oils that add to the fresh smell of your home. These smells aren’t harsh and lingering. They are easy on the senses because they are made from gentle and environmentally safe ingredients.

Less Antibacterials

Antibacterial products promote bacterial resistance to cleaning products and antibiotics. This is especially dangerous for those with weakened immune systems. By using harsher cleaners, we are forcing the bacteria to become stronger and more resilient. In addition to this, many cleaners with these antibacterial agents in them are known to mess with people’s hormones.

Why Professionals Should Clean Smoke Damage From A Fire

shutterstock_190324946

After a fire has been put out it might seem like a home is safe. However, without proper smoke damage repair, the building will never be completely safe or comfortable to live in. Fire restoration takes a lot of skill to do the right way and this is why a homeowner should never try to repair smoke damage on their own. Look for home restoration companies with the proper smoke damage repair certification.

Leftover Damage from a Fire

The smoke damage that a fire leaves behind continues to impact the house until it is removed. Ash and smoke for instance continue to cause discoloration, corrosion, and lingering odors. By hiring professionals to work on cleaning the fire and smoke damage immediately, you can prevent the problem from becoming worse than it already is. Many companies will advertise that they can perform fire repairs on your home. Only go with professionals that have the proper training and certification because they know how to properly repair the damage. By trusting someone that isn’t certified you could be causing more damage to your home.

Properly Repairing

Properly repairing smoke damage takes a lot of prep work and quickness. Any of the items that are being restored will need to be brought out from the home in order to stop any additional smoke damage from occurring to them. By doing this professionals can ensure that additional damage won’t occur to items such as plastic, finished appliances, metals, clothing, and upholstery. All of these items need to be removed and cleaned separately. Metals, woods, vinyls, and leather will all need to be refinished or replaced.

Waiting Too Long

If you hire someone inexperienced at cleaning fire damage or don’t do anything immediately after the fire, prices will go way up for your repairs. The time that it takes for smoke damage to cause severe damage to a home is short, usually only a few weeks. The odors from the fire will be strong and the ash is acid so it will continue to corrode and cause damage to your home. Professionals understand how to identify and remove affected materials to stop the decay of your home. Once your home is cleaned professionally, the risk of damage from smoke will go away and your home will be odor free.

Warning: Car Mold!

Macro mold colonies

People are well aware of the danger of mold in their homes but many don’t know that it could also be hiding in their cars. Mold is even more dangerous to have in your car. In this post we’re going to explain to you how mold can find its way into your car.

Danger

Your car is a small space with air that is mostly circulating around. If there were to be mold spores in this space there would be nowhere for them to go except for around in a circle. The more you are exposed to the mold spores, the more prominent your allergic reaction to them will be. One of the main indications will be the occurrence of a respiratory infection or illness.

Don’t Run the A/C

If you suspect that your car contains mold, running the air conditioner is one of the worst things you can do. When you do this, the mold begins to spread around the car in the form of spores that travel through the air. When you are in this situation you will be inhaling mold spores at a higher rate than you would even normally be in a home setting. The mold spores are actually being blown in your face by your own air conditioner.

Musty Smell

One of the most prominent signs that mold is in your car is that it begins to take on a musty odor. This smell will pervade the whole car and it will be hard to get rid of. You will notice that something smells earthy and musty. No matter what you do, you won’t be able to get rid of this scent. The best thing to do in this case is to completely clean and wash and blow dry your car out. This will dry out any mold that is growing inside of the car.

6 Signs It’s Time to Repair Your Home

It’s easy to let things go in your home over time. Allowing them to gradually deteriorate and lose their functionality. The important key here is that these problems can cost thousands of dollars in repairs. These include rebuilding parts of the home that have become so damaged that there is no other option.

1. Roof Damage

Your roof is the first place that water will enter your home if it is damaged. By regularly checking your roof, you can ensure that no leaks are forming and that your roof remains strong. Look for cracks or missing shingles, both of these signs will indicate that your roof is in need of some serious repairs.

2. Mold in Your Home

Check your home for moisture and monitor the level of humidity in all of the rooms. If it is too high in a certain room, purchase a dehumidifier to lower the level. Mold begins to form in areas where moisture has been allowed to build up for extended periods of time. The faster you get rid of mold, the less of a threat it poses to your health and home.

Make sure that all of your gutters are properly connected and draining properly. You may have to unclog some of your gutters and drains to ensure that the whole system is working effectively to remove water from your home. Always ensure that you are using an appropriate ladder and safety equipment when performing repairs on your gutters.

4. Pest Infestation

Rotting wood and soil will attract pests such as ants and termites, who feed on these materials and use it to build their homes. These can be prevented by keeping landscaping away from the home’s foundation. That way pests can’t find their way inside the home. Once the structure of the home has been breached by pests the best thing a homeowner can do is call a pest control company to eliminate the bugs before they cause serious damage.

5. Siding is Rotting or Deformed

When you notice that your siding is beginning to fall off, or that it has cracks, it is time to consider replacing the siding on your home. Siding is pretty cheap and easy to replace so you should take care of this problem right away before it becomes any more expensive. If your siding is damaged, you may also notice that your heating or cooling bill is much higher than usual. This is typical and should return to normal after you resolve this issue.

6. Cracks in Your Foundation

Walk around the home with a number 2 pencil and look at the foundation. Find all of the cracks and stick the pencil in starting with the lead tip. If the pencil goes all the way in, up to the yellow paint, then it is a sign that you need to call professionals to repair your foundation. Keep in mind that companies like Water Damage Zone are open 24/7 and able to assist you with problems such as these at any time. Don’t wait to fix issues like this until the last minute!
