Asthma Covid, Allergies and Covid, Showering At Night

8/30/2021 (Permalink)

Asthma Covid, Allergies and Covid, Showering At Night Asthma Covid, Allergies and Covid, Showering At Night

Are your Allergies and Asthma getting worse staying Inside?

Dermatologists say that an evening shower is good for your skin because it cleans it before sleep. Basically, there's always something in the air, (dirt, Pathogens, pollution), and the last thing you want to do is leave that on your skin while you go to sleep in a clean bed.

If you're an allergy sufferer, a night shower is best to wash pollen off your skin and hair before you try to go to sleep. Or for the months of March and April, you could shower as soon as you walk in the door every evening.

A shower at night affects your circadian rhythm, too, in a good way. Sleep experts note that a nighttime shower changes your body temperature in a way that may help you get to sleep faster and more easily.

Triggers for Asthma and Allergies include:
1) Mold and Pollen Spores From Outside and inside
2) Dust Mites and Insect waste/debris
3) Pet hair
4) Smoke from Fireplaces, Furnaces, Cigarettes, Cigars, and Candles
5) Scented products like Candles, cleaners, air fresheners, and perfumes, especially if they contain a bunch of chemical ingredients.

Dryer Vent cleaning in NJ, Dryer exhaust cleaning in NJ, Clothes Lint removal in NJ

About 27 percent of Dryer Exhaust fires are caused by an accumulation of lint, which means that not cleaning out your dryer vent can set you up for a dangerous situation that’s far more serious than the drop in performance caused by constricting a dryer’s ductwork.

Several tips for Preventing Dryer fires:

1) Clean the lint from the dryer’s lint screen after every load!

2) Replace Accordion-Style Ducts and Plastic Ducts and Flex foil ducts with a rigid metal duct. The smooth walls allow the air to flow, and also reduce the buildup of lint.

3) Clean the Main Dryer Duct and Exhaust to Oustide, twice or more a Year.

4) Clothes stained with gas, cooking oil, cleaning agents, or other flammable chemicals or substances need special handling and car.  Wash these clothes, more than once. If you must use a dryer, then use the lowest heat setting and a drying cycle that concludes with a cool-down period.

5) Print out a copy of the Attached Picture with Safety Tips, and Place near your Dryer for a Reminder!

Get Rid of Skunk Odor in NJ, Skunk Odor removal in NJ, Pet and Skunk Odor in NJ

8/28/2020 (Permalink)

Get Rid of Skunk Odor in NJ, Skunk Odor removal in NJ, Pet and Skunk Odor in NJ Get Rid of Skunk Odor in NJ, Skunk Odor removal in NJ, Pet and Skunk Odor in NJ

Skunk spray contains sulfur-based organic compounds called thiols. These compounds let off an immediate blast of acrid scent, reminiscent of rotten eggs.

Skunk spray also contains thioacetates. Thioacetates remain dormant at first, but can morph into smell-producing thiols when they come into contact with water or humidity. This can happen days or longer after the skunking occurred. It’s the thioacetates in skunk spray that give it its staying power.

Compounding this stinky situation is the sensitivity of the human nose, which can pick up skunk smell in tiny quantities — as low as 1 part per 10 billion.

Everyone knows that tomato juice is handy for deskunking a dog, but it’s not the only old-time remedy that works to get rid of skunk odor from your dog. Some other ingredients to keep on hand in quantity in case of emergency include vanilla extract, apple cider vinegar, and backing soda, Dawn Dish soap and Clean water.

Get your pet Shampooed and cleaned immediately!  Be careful of your pets eyes, nose and mouth and feet.  

The best way to eliminate skunk odor is to avoid it altogether. Believe it or not, skunks hate strong odors. You can keep them out of your woodshed or other outbuildings by hanging a bar of strong disinfectant or room deodorizer in the space or area.  Even Bars of old soap can be used.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

5/17/2019 (Permalink)

Multi-unit dryer vent cleaning.

We wash and dry our clothes on a regular basis, but do we stop and think about the dryer vents? Most of us keep the lint trap inside our dryer clean, unaware that there is another fire risk that is not so easy to check. About 80% of structural fires are caused by dirty or clogged dryer vents. Your vents should be cleaned at least once a year by a professional.

Warning signs that your dryer vents need to be cleaned are:

• Clothes are taking much longer than normal to dry. It will often take two or three cycles to dry them.

Clothes have a strange, burning smell to them. This could be a sign that your dryer vent isn’t properly able to ventilate the warm air out of the appliance.

•The laundry room feels excessively hot when the dryer is running. Again, this could be a result of a clogged vent that isn’t letting hot air escape.

Problems caused by a clogged dryer vent:

• Fires. The lint from your clothes can build up inside the dryer vent. This material is highly flammable and can cause a fire.

• Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. When the dryer vent is clogged, dangerous CO gases aren’t able to escape. Instead, they build up inside the vent and may seep out into the laundry room and into other areas of the home.

• Wear and tear on the dryer. When it takes two or three cycles to get your clothes dried, this puts a lot of strain on your dryer. It can lead to excessive wear and tear on the unit.

• Skyrocketing utility bills. A dryer that is running more often than it should to dry clothes will use a lot of energy. This will be reflected on your monthly utility bills.

If your dryer ever starts smoking, turn it off. Do not open the dryer door. Call 911.

To help prevent any dryer vent problems, call SERVPRO of Blackwood/Gloucester Township every year to have them cleaned. (856)227-7800

Preventing Pet Odors

7/27/2018 (Permalink)

Love your pets, not the odor.

Having pets is a part of life. Having pet odor doesn't have to be. If you love having pets, but can't stand the lingering odors they create, then there are a few things you can do to help eliminate those unwanted odors.

Your carpet can be a big source of lingering odors. Dirt, pet dander, urine, and fecal matter can remain deep inside carpet fibers. Carpet powder only helps deodorize and clean the surface but does little to get in deep. Using a carpet cleaner is more effective but only if you know how to use it correctly. The experts at SERVPRO of Blackwood/Gloucester Township know how to deep clean your carpet to get rid of any unwanted odors. Their equipment and expert knowledge on carpet cleaning will get the job done right the first time and provide lasting results.

Odors can also linger within the air duct system of your home too. Cleaning the air ducts is a task that should only be left to the experts. SERVPRO has the right equipment to clean out your air ducts and eliminate those lingering odors. You'll notice the difference the first time you use your HVAC.

Pet odors can also linger within the walls and baseboards of your home. Pet urine can be absorbed by the wooden baseboards or absorbed into the gypsum material of your drywall. Priming and painting may not be enough. SERVPRO has the necessary chemicals to clean and deodorize your walls and baseboards.

Choosing SERVPRO of Blackwood/Gloucester Township to help with your home's deodorization is the smart choice. Having a pet doesn't mean you have to live with lingering odors. The expert knowledge and equipment of SERVPRO can eliminate all of your home's odors and make it seem like you never had pets at all.

Call us at 856-227-7800 to schedule a carpet cleaning.

The Importance of Hood Vent Cleanings.

3/27/2018 (Permalink)

Hood vent cleaning in Blackwood.

You don’t have to own a restaurant to have a commercial kitchen. After all, hospitals, churches, hotels, schools and senior centers all have kitchens that can feed a large number of people. Regardless of how large or small the kitchen is, or what volume of food it churns out every month, people in the building could be in danger if something goes wrong.

When commercial kitchen vent hoods are clean:

The risk of fire is reduced. The purpose of a vent hood is to trap as much grease, smoke and grime as possible. That’s why it’s located directly above the cooking surface. Over time, the hood accumulates a sticky layer of grease. If heated to a high enough temperature, this grease could ignite. Grease fires are incredibly dangerous and burn very hot, so any step you can take to reduce this risk is worth taking.
Dangerous particle emissions are also reduced. The grimier a kitchen vent hood becomes, the less efficient it is at trapping grease, smoke and other grime. Particles not trapped in the vent hood are free to escape into the air inside the building. This causes a potential health risk to your kitchen staff and other people in the building.
Your company will stay in compliance with local fire safety codes. If a local fire official makes a surprise visit to your commercial kitchen, he could fine you or shut down the establishment if he discovers the kitchen hood is not clean and well maintained. This isn’t something you ever want to deal with!
It will lower insurance costs. Insurance companies require commercial kitchens to comply with all fire safety codes. If you’re found in violation of any codes, you could lose coverage or watch helplessly as your premiums skyrocket.

It is strongly recommended that you hire a SERVPRO professional for the job. SERVPRO professionals will get the job done efficiently and thoroughly.

Call SERVPRO of Blackwood/Gloucester Twp. if you need a hood vent cleaning. (856)227-7800

Spring Cleaning

5/6/2016 (Permalink)

The days are getting longer and the temps hotter, and that means it's time you get your AC ready for summer


Spring is in the air and while we are all busy dusting, mopping, and cleaning away the winter blues, a lot of us are missing a very important part of our spring cleaning regimen and that is our air conditioning system.  When is the last time you had your ducts cleaned?  Is it even necessary?  Here are some facts:

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is one concern that homeowners have when they decide to investigate air duct cleaning. In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system takes air in and breathes air out.

Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.

While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.

Energy Savings

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.

When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.

Call us today at 856-227-7800 for your free estimate and to schedule your duct and carpet cleanings for businesses and homes today! If you mention this blog post we will change your air filter at no additional cost!
