How To Know if Air Ducts Need Cleaning?

Look for These Symptoms

  • Clogs of dust, cobwebs, and debris, or noticeable particles blowing out of supply registers.
  • Visible mold on the inside surfaces of ducts.
  • Rodent droppings and dead insects inside ducts.
  • In addition, recent construction inevitably creates dust you don’t want in circulation.

Good Reasons for Duct Cleaning:

  • Cleaning removes accumulated dust so it won’t shed into the household.
  • Removing debris and cobwebs eases airflow and increases the efficiency of the system, in extreme cases as much as 40%.
  • If you have fiberglass ducting, fiberglass gathers more dust than sheet metal.

Carpet Cleaning

Why Carpet Steam Cleaning? 

Steam Cleaning Carpets

We have all been there – Carpets get dirty over time, no matter how much you try to prevent it from happening. A spill here and a spill there – high traffic areas, etc. At one point or another your have considered getting your carpets cleaned. Chances are the main reason is because of need. But when the time comes, it’s important to remember all the benefits of having your carpet steam cleaned. It is not only to get them beautiful again, even though that is one main reason. Read further for other reasons!

Hidden Benefits of Steam Cleaning

  1.  A carpet which is steam cleaned is a carpet with a prolonged life. By taking the necessary steps to protect and clean your carpet you are also protecting your bank account! A carpet which has seen better days can easily benefit from steam cleaning and be restored to its original brilliance. This cost is nominal compared to the cost of having a full carpet replaced.
  2.  Over time your carpet attracts a multitude of allergens and even dust mites. This does not mean your home is dirty as these things build up in any home and carpet. But they can have an effect on the health and wellbeing of your family. This is especially true in homes with small children or pets who often play, lay and generally spend more time on the floor. By having your carpets steam cleaned you are removing these elements from your carpet and so providing a cleaner space for your family to relax and play.
  3. Take a look under your sink. Chances are you have several different cleaning solutions for carpet stains as well as carpet deodorizers. By having your carpets professionally cleaned you can reduce the amount of cleaning supplies you need and that translates into more money in your back pocket! Also, the cleaning solutions used by professionals do a better job which is why it helps to prolong that carpet’s life. So stow away those cleaning supplies in favor of letting the professionals of Green Clean VA assist you in getting your carpets into best shape ever.
  4. A professionally cleaned carpet is definitely a thing of beauty. But its effect is not limited to just the carpet. A clean carpet has a knock on effect of making the entire room, and your whole house look better. This is not only important when it comes to making a good impression, it also elevates the mood of your entire family. If you happen to be considering selling your home, it can be an easy way to make your home more attractive to potential buyers. (Jason Playne: “The Top 4 Overlooked Benefits to Steam Cleaning”)

Upholstery Cleaning

What Is the Importance of Furniture Steam Cleaning…? 

before

 

Many homeowners may not realize that steam cleaning furniture is possible.  Actually, this process can extend the life of many items in the house. While there are some over the counter items that a consumer can use to perform basic procedures on fabrics, these are not effective as the services of a professional. An expert who is trained to treat household fixtures will be able to remove more dirt, debris, odor, and stains. They will also be better equipped and trained to monitor water usage (over-saturating the fabric can leave the item in worse shape than before.)

Over time, items in the home pick up dirt.  Dust mites and possibly microbes can grow if they are exposed to food or other organic substances.  If left alone, these fixtures can cause health issues for those that are sensitive or have weakened immune systems. Because of this, steam cleaning furniture can deliver real health benefits to the home.  With a trained professional, it can be done cost effectively and quickly.

The high powered washers that professionals use are better at removing stains and extracting debris deep in the fabric than anything that can be rented or bought at the department store. It also takes a trained hand not to use too much water or detergent, as either can cause damage. One of the most common mistakes homeowners make when steam cleaning furniture is using too much liquid on the fabric. For items that are porous and capable of absorbing a lot of moisture, this can cause mold growth or odors which will require a professional to remove.

 Green Clean VA Professionals Recommend the Following Methods 

Organic Cleaning

We recommend organic cleaning as it is cheap, safe and good for the environment. It is generally suggested for daily cleaning but not as a substitute for periodically professional cleaning. Try vinegar and salt to remove coffee and tea stains. You can soak a sponge or rag in vinegar to wipe down a greasy surface. Other substances Green Clean VA proposes are baking soda and lemon juice. Baking soda is great as a deodorizer. Put a box inside the refrigerator and freezer to absorb the smells.

Deep Cleaning & Hot Water Extraction:

Deep cleaning is an excellent choice for cleaning your couch, love seat, arm chair and more. First of all, check your label and look for the instructions. Some fabrics are sensitive and in rare cases deep cleaning may harm them. Green Clean VA invites you to call us if you’re still not completely sure about deep cleaning.

Green Clean VA always first tests the shampoo and stain removal formula on an exact fabric to look for any shrinking or fading of the color. After making sure everything is OK we finally start the deep cleaning. The shampoo and stain removal are sprayed deep inside the fibers.

Hot water extraction is a common cleaning method for upholstery and leather furniture. We use truck mounted machine, as it has lots of power and heat which are necessary for cleaning. High pressure hose is used for spraying hot water and detergents that loosen the dirt until the furniture is absolutely cleaned. Green Clean VA welcomes you to use our hot water extraction method as it is the most recommended method to clean the furniture by the furniture manufacturers!

Carpet Repair and Re-stretching

Why Carpet Repair & Re-Stretching Might be needed?

Waves in Your Carpeting

carpet restretching

Have you ever seen ripples and waves in someone’s carpet and wondered how on earth that happened? There’s a few reasons this might occur, there’s flood damage, damaged sub floor, foundation settlement, but more often than not, the carpet was improperly installed by a contractor. Not only are these ripples unattractive, but over time they can become bigger, and dirtier, and often become a tripping hazard. Let Green Clean VA save the day and quite possibly even prevent injuries from tripping.

Green Clean VA can fix this potential disaster waiting to happen, and we stand by the service we provide.

Carpet Repairs

  • Carpet re-stretching: poorly installed and older carpets may develop wrinkles, lumps, waves, bulges, bubbles and bunches. Green Clean VA has the expertise to re-stretch your carpet; a far more cost effective option than carpet replacement.
  • Carpet seam repair & transitions: poorly installed and older carpets may begin separating at the seams, pull off its tack strip, develop frayed ends or loosen at the floor transition areas. Green Clean VA can fix that too! Call us to extend the life of your carpet.
  • Carpet patching: if you have unsightly stained, burned or damaged sections in your carpet, we have the ability to replace that section; providing you have matching carpet remnants. If you do not have spare carpet pieces, we could remove some from a discreet section of your closet.

Carpet stretching, patching, or repair can add years to the life of your carpet at a fraction of the cost and hassle that would be involved in replacing it.

Tile & Grout Cleaning

Tile and Grout Cleaning and Sealing Services by Green Clean Professionals!

tile and grout cleaning

 

Most homes today have at least a room or two with tile because of its many benefits, some of which include:

  • Very low maintenance required – just regular cleaning
  • Ability to be placed in a wide variety of settings – fireplaces, kitchen floors, bathroom walls
  • Cost effectiveness – very low
  • Durability – no dents like in hardwood or snags and pulls like in carpets
  • Ease of repair – it’s much easier to replace a broken tile than it is a hardwood plank

After installation, you will quickly find out if your tile and grout is unsealed, as any food or drink spilled onto the floor will soak into the tile and grout, potentially staining it permanently.

Even when sealed, tile floors can start to show their age by the tile grout darkening and discoloring (This is the most common complaint from homeowners and business owners).

Particularly because tile is frequently found in a moist environment, like a bathroom or a kitchen, grout can darken, and in some cases, grow mold or black mold. Tile floors can easily be restored to their former glory by a quick dose of tile and grout cleaning.

Although a quick cleaning should be done with your regular kitchen cleaning, bathroom cleaning and general housecleaning to keep it looking as good as you can, a dose of professional tile cleaning and grout cleaning can erase the stains and discoloring you aren’t able to clean with regular household cleaners.

Professional Tile Grout Cleaning Services

Green Clean VA can restore your tiled and grouted areas, whether it is one year old or twenty years old. Our tile grout cleaning services include a variety of options, the most popular of which is steam cleaning to remove stains and color from deep within the grout.

We can also protect the tile and grout from future harm by applying a new layer of sealant. Floor waxing and floor polishing are just icing on the cake, further convincing everyone who sees your tiled areas that its brand new.

We haven’t met many people who enjoy cleaning tile floors, and even for those diligent enough to hurt their backs, knees and elbows, regular household cleaners – including those specially formulated for tile and grout cleaning – simply aren’t strong enough to do as good a job as true professionals can.

If you are interested in achieving a ‘new’ look for your current tiled areas without spending much money, call GREEN CLEAN VA today!!!

We offer a professional floor cleaning service specializing in tile and grout! You will not regret it!

Chimney Sweep

Chimney Sweeping Service for Your Safety!

chimney sweep

How often should I have my chimney swept?

This a tougher question than it sounds. The simple answer is: The National Fire Protection Association Standard 211 says, “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.” This is the national safety standard and is the correct way to approach the problem. It takes into account the fact that even if you don’t use your chimney much, animals may build nests in the flue or there may be other types of deterioration that could make the chimney unsafe to use. The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that open masonry fireplaces should be swept at 1/8″ of sooty buildup, and sooner if there is any glaze present in the system.  This is considered to be enough fuel buildup to cause a chimney fire capable of damaging the chimney or spreading to the home. Factory-built fireplaces should be swept when any appreciable buildup occurs. The logic is that the deposit is quite acidic and can shorten the life of the fireplace. – See more from the Chimney Safety Institute of America here

Hardwood Cleaning

Proudly Offering Hardwood Floor Cleaning at Affordable Prices

hardwood floor cleaning

Hardwood Floors are timeless – keep them that way for unlimited time!

Like any thing of beauty, hardwood floors require constant attention to keep them looking rich and adding the value they should.  Even though you try to keep your hardwood floors clean and shining like new, improper cleaning methods or inappropriate maintenance frequency can lead to scuffs, abrasions, warping, and staining.  The longer these items go unaddressed, the more extensive they become and the more expensive they become to repair.

There are a lot of reasons that your wood floors become dirty and won’t quite shine like new. For the entry-ways, the most abused floors in your home, a combination of dirt, sand, and moisture accumulates on and damages the floor. In other areas, normal traffic and too much moisture when cleaning floors make your floors look dull. That’s why it’s recommended that your hardwood floors be professionally cleaned and conditioned periodically.

The frequency depends largely on the amount of traffic and the location of the wood floors, but should be at least 2-4 times a year for most hardwood floors in order to keep them looking their best and extending their life. So let the professionals at Heaven’s Best maintain your hardwood floors for you.

Green Clean VA is proud to offer state of the art hardwood floor cleaning. We can clean any type of hardwood flooring:

  • Solid Wood Flooring (unfinished and prefinished)
  • Strip Wood Flooring
  • Plank Wood Flooring
  • Parquet Wood Flooring
  • Engineered Wood Flooring
  • Acrylic-impregnated Wood Flooring
  • Distressed Wood Flooring

The machines of Green Clean VA really works well on all types of hardwood flooring.

Tips for preserving your hardwood floors:

  • Keep your floors clean – vacuum and sweep regularly
  • Avoid using wax, oil, soap and other industrial household cleaners
  • Remove spills immediately
  • Place mats at entry ways and area rugs in high traffic areas
  • Do not use rubber-backed rugs or rugs with little ventilation
  • Keep the humidity levels stable, this will prevent floors from swelling, shrinking, cracking or gaping
  • Avoid deep scratches which can be caused by high heels, pets and dragging furniture across the floor
  • Schedule cleanings with Green Clean every 3-6 months if you have heavy traffic on your hardwood floors and every 6-12 months if you have light traffic on your hardwood floors

Power Washing

 

Proudly Offering Power Washing Services at Affordable Prices!
Safe and Effective Low Pressure House Washing

Softwashing+South+Jersey+Siding+Before+and+After

refinished-porch-deck

powerwash brick

Our house washing is done with the recommended  softwash technique (not high pressure).  It is designed to eliminate growth and remove the dirt, grime and pollution from your home’s exterior.  This proven method provides you with the results you are looking for.  Your house will look like it shining when we’re done with it!

What is Soft Washing?

Soft Washing is a superior method for cleaning exterior surfaces like siding, stucco and roofs.  It utilizes a customized a cleaning solution that is applied using very low pressure which will not harm or damage painted surfaces, roof shingles, wood, or vinyl siding. This low pressure application is much safer than blasting your house with high-pressure alone and does a much better job at cleaning your exterior.

The power behind Soft Washing lies in its chemistry.  The solution is designed to attack your stains at the root of the problem.

How we do it: It’s all about technique and high quality detergents that’s safe and effective. The process starts with a low-pressure soap application of the detergent that is designed to reach down to the root of the stains. Once it takes effect, it’s followed with a high-volume, low-pressure rinse that safely removes what’s remaining. This method is much safer for your exterior with results that are night and day compared to the high-pressure way that some contractors and handymen are still using. Even a small “Home Depot” pressure washer can cause damage and drive water behind you siding.  Don’t take that chance, give us a call.

Vinyl, Aluminum, Wood, Brick, Block, Stucco, Dryvit, EIFS, Composites and more… 

Most siding manufactures suggest you clean or power wash your siding every two years for proper maintenance while some people insist on an annual cleaning simply for the delight of constant curb appeal. Painted surfaces break down over time as the sun’s ultraviolet light and heat bears down on them causing it to oxidize. As it oxidizes, it turns into a slightly colored, chalky substance. Auto or industrial pollution, mold and mildew will add to this breakdown.

Our use of a soft washing system allows us to clean and sanitize various types of exteriors all without the risk of damage from typical high pressure cleaning. Neglecting to wash your home’s exterior can become not only costly and unsightly but unhealthy as well.
