Deep Cleaning Your Leather Couches

SERVPRO Leather Cleaner Leather Cleaner is solvent free and works without removing finish or harming the leather.

Movie nights snuggled up with Fido, dinner in the living room instead of the kitchen table, or a spot to take a quick nap. Or worst case scenario, your home has mold or water damage. The sofas in our homes are used in many different ways. A few bad stains and spills can ruin the overall appearance of a classic leather sofa--especially if left untreated or cleaned improperly. SERVPRO has three leather cleaning products that we offer for retail: Leather Cleaner, Leather Spotting Agent, and Suede & NuBuck Leather Cleaner. 

SERVPRO's Leather Cleaner is a water based cleaner that can be used on all leather types. It is a mild cleaner that will not affect the leather's original properties or finish. It will clean most soiling as well as water-based stains. Leather Cleaner is solvent-free and works without removing finish or harming the leathers.

SERVPRO's Spotting Agent is a solvent based spot remover for Aniline and NuBuck leathers. It was developed to remove blue jean transfer, newspaper print, and deep stains like mustard and ink from Aniline and NuBuck leathers. This product works when nothing else will clean the leather. It is most effective on pigmented leathers, but can be used carefully on other types. For best results, apply the SERVPRO Leather Cleaner after use. 

SERVPRO's Suede and NuBuck Leather Cleaner is a water based cleaner for top coated, aniline, semi-aniline, suede, and NuBuck leather types. This product cleans oil, water, and alcohol-based stains, as well as protects the leather from the effects of daily soiling.

Duct/HVAC cleaning

10/10/2019 (Permalink)

Are you seeing dust right after a full house deep cleaning? DO you see or feel dust in the air? Are you or your family dealing with severe allergy flare ups? if so it may be time for a duct/HVAC cleaning. Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. Make it a priority to inspect the ductwork of your home or business. SERVPRO of Carteret and East Onslow Counties Professionals routinely inspect the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC). Keeping them clean can extend the life of the equipment. We offer duct cleaning services to residential and commercial properties. Another good time to do a duct cleaning would be right after construction in your home or office building, all the dust and construction debris can get sucked into the ventilation system and cause your HVAC system to have problems in the future. 

Odors Got You Down?

The Funk

Odors, there everywhere right? Some good, some bad.  And then you have the day after taco dinner night. Now that’s worse. It seems every dwelling has a different odor. Some houses always smell like good cooking even when nobody is cooking and then some smell like cat urine. Some smell like potpourri and some smell like cigarette smoke.

Then you have the severe cases, although day after Mexican ranks high. How about a decomposing body found after a period of time? In my opinion there is no worse smell than death. How about a structure that has suffered mold or water damage? How about a sewer backup?   Smoke or soot damage? All of these have one thing in common, they are an odor.

How are odors detected?

No mechanical instrument is capable of detecting the presence of an odor or the intensity of an odor. Humans depend on the ‘ol sniffer as the best “instrument” for detecting odor. Odors result from airborne chemicals, gases, or tiny particles. As we breathe, these molecules are absorbed by the mucous membranes in our nose and mouth. Receptors, called olfactory nerve endings, send a message to the brain, where the odor sensation is interpreted.

Now think about this, how many times have you detected an odor but didn’t know where it was coming from. Or tried to sell or rent a house that was occupied by a pet person or smoker. They may not be there anymore but the odor is. Do you know why? It’s time to deodorize.

Stop the press!!

Time to throw a wrench. Did you know that some people THINK they smell an odor when there is really nothing there. Ever had somebody say, “Hey, come here and smell this. Do you smell that?” And no, I’m not talking about when your dad tricks you into coming into the bathroom as soon as he walks out. I’m talking about imaginary odor, also known as heightened awareness odors.

Imaginary or psychological odor is what people think they smell. They are stimulated by a given set of circumstances and strong impressions formed from similar circumstances before. Some people think they smell something because of the circumstances, not because of an odor actually being present.

Approach and Treatment

Deodorization would be simple if all odors came from one source and one deodorization method could eliminate all of them. Unfortunately, all odors do not come from one source. Do not panic though. We got you covered. Here is a brief description of the four basic procedures effective in most deodorizing situations.

1. Remove the odor source and debris. Remove the odor source, rather than attempting to deodorize the source. For example, if the source of odor is a dead animal you would not think of leaving the animal in place and trying to deodorize. In a building damaged by a fire, you should remove charred structural materials before deodorizing. Debris contaminated with smoke residues can continue to give off smoke odors or soils if not removed. Removing the odor source is the universal first step in deodorization.

2. Clean surfaces that have odor-causing residues. Small particles of odor-producing residue will continue to generate odors if not cleaned effectively. For example, in a grease fire you may need to clean significant concentrations of residue from the stove, countertops, vent hood, vent filter, cabinets, walls, and ceilings to stop odor problems. Check all rooms—not just the kitchen—to see how far odors have penetrated. Sometimes the entire structure and its contents may need to be cleaned to remove smoke odors.

3. Re-create the conditions that caused odor penetration. Distribute a deodorizer to a surface in a manner similar to the way odor-causing substances penetrated the surface. For example, if smoke created the problem, a deodorizing “smoke” or fog will be most effective in following odors to their source. If urine contaminated an area, then “flood” affected areas with deodorizers (sanitizers, neutralizers, and digesters). Odors can be distributed in more than one way. For example, decaying flesh produces fumes and gases, which are distributed on air currents to surfaces not in direct contact with the source. This situation may require multiple methods of deodorization. Directly saturate any areas that were physically contacted by the source. Fog other areas to seek out odor vapors that have penetrated surfaces.

4. Seal surfaces exposed to malodors. Sealing is not required in all circumstances, but may be called for in severe situations. If odor removal would be too expensive or impractical, sealing might eliminate the problem. Two common situations are sealing and painting ceilings and walls and sealing inaccessible duct surfaces in air handling systems.

Trust The Pros

You never have to go it alone and you shouldn’t have to. When odors are ruining your life and your dwelling call the pros. We have the equipment, solutions and people to fix all your deodorization needs. Remember, at SERVPRO, we make it, "Like it never happened".
