Let Us Clean Your Vents
Clean Green Air
If you choose to clean your air duct system and use improper tools or don't fully clean it, you can worsen the condition of your air quality rather than improve it. At SERVPRO of Southern Staten Island, we’ve developed a targeted approach to clean air vents and systems – only using the highest-rated equipment and environmentally friendly cleansers to safely, yet effectively, purify your air ducts the right way.
As a result, you will note a marked improvement in air quality. Cleaning your air vents is safeguarding the health of your occupants. In addition, our team of air duct cleaning specialists will assess the condition of your venting system if you believe there are any pre-existing conditions (such as mildew, mold growth, etc.) and assist in eradicating the issue.
The air you breathe inside is definitely not cleaner than the fresh air you breathe outside. Indoor air is around 2-5 times more polluted than fresh outdoor air. Unlike in the outdoors, your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system builds up contaminants inside of them. Not only do these trigger allergies and other health effects, but it causes your energy costs to increase as the system uses more power to function.
Our goal is to contain the work areas, ensuring minimal disruption to your business operations. After the air duct cleaning is complete, we conduct a final inspection and provide you with our final report.

Cleaning Your Outdoor Deck
By the end of summer, most patio decks tend to look a little rough. Even under constant vigilance and proactive cleaning, decks can accumulate dirt and debris. Although it may seem to be an intimidating chore, cleaning the deck can be done easily. Washing your deck does not have to be expensive, it just needs a thorough cleaning once a year (minimum!)
The first step is to do a quick sweep of the patio. Be sure to not only sweep away the debris but also make sure that there is nothing between the cracks. Not doing so will result in loose leaves and items to rot the deck. Once properly swept up, then you can start scrubbing the deck. You can use either soapy water or a deck cleaner solution. Another way to clean the deck is to use a power washer, especially for large areas. Once you’re finished scrubbing the deck, give it a good rinse. Your final step is to clean the deck and apply either a stain or sealer. Voila! Your deck should look good as new!
Why You Should Clean Your Carpet
Professional carpet cleaning is not something everyone thinks about, but a dirty carpet can pose risks in a home or office. Carpets can hold onto things such as allergens, dust, and bacteria that can pose a risk to your health. Vacuuming only helps temporarily but does not remove all of the built up particles in the fabric of the cloth. Professional cleaning also improves airflow and makes your carpet and room look much cleaner.
Professional cleaners like SERVPRO are skilled in cleaning carpets under regular circumstances and even the irregular. So before you consider replacing your carpet, give SERVPRO a call and see what can be done for you.
The Natural Wear and tear of Upholstery
From your leather sofa to your favorite fabric lounge chair, keeping your upholstery clean can help extend the life of your upholstery furniture, which goes through natural wear and tear. SERVPRO of Southern Staten Island can identify different types of fabric and the best cleaning method for each.
Promote a Healthy Home or Office Environment
Upholstery experiences a lot of daily soiling, collection of dust and wear and tear. Think about how much dust comes in and out of your home or office through open doors and windows and accumulates on your furniture. Cleaning your upholstery on a regular basis not only freshens the material and furniture, but it can also help allergy sufferers by eliminating all of that dust, dirt and allergens. Bacteria and germs can also be removed from furniture on a regular cleaning basis, resulting in a clean and fresh upholstery furniture.
When your upholstery is clean, it create an inviting and fresh environment. Over time, the upholstery fabric can soak up whatever smell is in the air or placed upon the furniture. For example, if you're cooking fish, that smell will linger in the home and settle onto your upholstery. Perfume can get rubbed onto upholstery off of another person.
Save Money in the Long Run
Upholstery furniture can take a beating when used on a regular basis. Not only will cleaning eliminate dirt, dust and bacteria, but it can also help faded furniture and even restore color to a "like new" condition. In the long-run, this will save you from having to purchase another piece of furniture to replace a dirty, faded one.
