Commercial Commercial Carpet Cleaning. Salem, Oregon.

Routine Carpet Maintenance and Carpet Cleaning Frequency

Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils in both commercial and residential settings. This is why all carpet manufacturers agree that the following actions will help extend the life span of a carpet:

  • Regular vacuuming. (79% of soils are removed by vacuuming!)
  • Spot removal.
  • Pilating the carpet to stop it from matting.
  • Moving furniture to change traffic patterns.
  • Using walk-off mats to lower the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet.
  • Periodically deep cleaning the carpet.

The number of times a carpet should be vacuumed and cleaned depends on the level of foot traffic and any other conditions that bring soils into the environment.

SERVPRO of Salem West offers carpet cleaning in your home or business with the best skill, techniques, and customer service. Let SERVPRO get it done the right way. Call for a quote (503) 393-9999.

Ice Dam in Bend, Oregon

Storm Damage Ice Dam in Bend, Oregon Bend, Oregon

During winter season there are things homeowners need to do in order to protect their homes from potential damages. 

In this picture of the snow storm that happened in February of 2017, shows what happens when you don't clean out your gutters.

Under all that snow is ice. The heat from your home rises causing the ice to melt. When the ice melts you have trapped water. Where does that water go? You guessed it; it seeps into your roof causing water damage in your ceiling and walls. 

This kind of damage is costly and if it isn't taken care of in a timely manner you run into more potential damages such as mold growth in as little as 48 hours. 

Taking a little time out of your day to clean those gutters can prevent ice dams and save you money. 

SERVPRO of Salem West is 24/7/365. Call at any time for an estimate for all your storm emergencies. (503) 393-9999.
