Cleaning Tips: Cleaning Up Safely After a Disaster Cleaning Up After Disaster

If your home has sustained damage after a disaster, it’s important that the cleaning process is implemented in as safe a manner as possible. Failing to take proper security measures could lead to a variety of mishaps and even serious injuries. Before you reenter your home and attempt to deal with the results of a catastrophic event, you may wish to explore some tips on cleaning up safely after a disaster.

Tips on Cleaning Up Safely After a Disaster

Entering a damaged building safely is critical. You should always wait to reenter such a building until after it has been inspected by a qualified professional. If you hear strange noises or smell an unusual odor (such as gas), leave the structure immediately and contact emergency personnel. Be sure to have at least two fire extinguishers available for cleanup jobs. Everyone cleaning a damaged structure should wear safety gear, such as safety goggles and hard hats.   

The best way to keep yourself and your family safe after a catastrophe is to know and follow general safety guidelines. Cleaning up safely after a disaster is crucial. If you take the proper security measures, you can prevent further damage and personal injuries.

Minimizing Springtime Allergies in Southern Nevada

Cleaning Minimizing Springtime Allergies in Southern Nevada Cleaning Your Ducts Can Help Reduce Allergies.

Chances are if you live in Henderson, Boulder City or Laughlin you suffer from springtime allergies of some kind. Despite common beliefs the amount of desert surrounding the entire Las Vegas Valley and most of Southern Nevada does little to cause allergy issues. 

Major Causes of Seasonal Allergies

Pollen is the largest culprit behind most seasonal allergies. With millions of Americans suffering from some kind of allergic reaction to the pollen found around them it is no wonder this is such a large topic of conversation. In Henderson and Boulder City we think that because we don't get very much rain that we would have less pollen.

Unfortunately, because we don't get much rain when we do the plants around us work that much harder to bloom, produce pollen, and reproduce before the water disappears. This means that when it rains, like it did just this past Tuesday, the chain reaction can wreak havoc on our allergies. So, while pollen counts are lowest right after a rain, the following couple of days are often some of the higher pollen count days.

How To Reduce Allergies

Avoid Outdoors - Staying indoors on days with high pollen counts can help you reduce your exposure to allergens and the symptoms that persue.

Clean Your Ducts - The duct system in your home or office circulates not only pollen but other dust, dirt, debri and contaminants that made their way through your filters. While replacing your filters periodically can help keep the system clean, having your duct system clean will reduce these allergens and reduce odors.

Reduce Exposure to Triggers - Making sure to remove clothing you've worn outside, not dry clothes outside, delegate outside chores to others or wear a mask when performing them, can all help reduce your allergies.

Visit an Allergy Specialist - If nothing you do seems to help reduce your allergies, or if they are interfering with your normal routine, you may consider seeing an allergy specialist for an evaluation or testing.

For individuals with allergies, it is likely an ongoing battle, but knowing how to reduce your allergy exposures can help increase the days you live without allergies interfering with your everyday routine.

Cleaning How to Keep the Dust Down: 4 Easy Steps SERVPRO keeps the dust down!

With the desert all around us, constant construction and even the wind storms that come through the valley you might think that you are helpless against stopping dust from entering your home. There are a few things you could do to help keep the dust down. 

Landscape - Landscaping any bare dirt portions of your yard, even if that landscape is rocks will greatly reduce the dust inside your home.

Clean Your Screens - Screens sure do come in handy, especially when we get great weather in February. Make sure to keep the screens on your windows and doors clean, and close windows and doors during windier days.

Seal Cracks - It’s the cracks around your doors, windows, and even dog doors that tend to let in a large amount of dust. Not only will sealing these keep the dust down, but also it will also help save on energy bills.

Clean Regularly - Especially your floors. Make sure to vacuum, sweep, and mop your floor services frequently. Even regularly dusting your home will help to keep it less dusty.

How to Reduce Springtime Allergies

Cleaning How to Reduce Springtime Allergies Reduce Springtime Allergies with a SERVPRO Cleaning

Spring is in the air all around Southern Nevada and if you live in Henderson, Boulder City or Laughlin you know that with it come all the allergens and irritants that cause sneezing, sniffling, dripping noses and stuffy heads. Keep your nose cleaner and your head cleaner by having the allergens removed from your home or office.

What Areas Are Most Important to Clean?

In your home or office the carpet, ducts and upholstery are the largest collectors of allergy producers. Just by making sure that they are consistently and professionally cleaned you can reduce a lot of the major contributors to your allergies. 

Carpet Cleaning - Even with regular vacuuming your carpet and padding can collect allergens. Having a professional carpet cleaning company clean your carpets can help drastically.

Duct Cleaning - Even with frequently changing your air duct filters dust and other allergens can get caught between your air conditioning unit and your air vents. While you can make sure to change your filters on a regular basis, it is suggested to have your ducts cleaned once a year at a minimum.

Upholstery Cleaning - Think about how long you keep your couch and how often you get it cleaned. Even vacuuming your couch only removes so much. We suggest having your upholstered furniture cleaned at least a couple of times a year to remove excess dirt.
