Why should I clean my air ducts?
The EPA lists indoor air pollution as one of the top five environmental threats to public health. The EPA estimates that we spend 90% of our time indoors. The levels of some hazardous pollutants have been found to be up to 70 times greater in indoor air than in outdoor air (U.S. EPA). Your air ducts are part of the house’s respiratory system. As a house functions it “breathes” in dirt, dust, debris, pet dander and microbial growth such as mold spores, mildew, bacteria, pollen and ragweed. These attach to the lining of the ducts. A thorough cleaning will eliminate debris from your air ducts that cause indoor air quality problems in your home and for it’s occupants. In addition, cleaning the “respiratory system” will keep your HVAC system running more efficiently.
How do we find where your pet stains are? You might be surprised to know that we use a UV light to determine where the pet stains are located. Sometimes when pet urine dries, the stains are hardly noticeable, but the smell and bacteria remain. We then use a urine sensor so we can make sure we treat each stain effectively.
Ever gone on vacation and came back to the smell of your beloved pet – hitting you when you walk into the door? Isn’t it funny that the smell didn’t seem to be there when you left, but nothing has changed since you returned? It’s probably odor fatigue, which means that we get used to an odor in our home and don’t notice it anymore. The problem lies in the fact that our guests can smell it and that can’t be good. Luckily, we have the powerful equipment and professional cleaning solutions here at Kip’s Carpet Cleaning that can get rid of some of the toughest pet odors & more. Even those that are lurking deep within the pile and pad of your carpet. We’ll get them out of your upholstery too! Just give us a call at 785-229-9203 today.
Do you buy scented candles and fancy deodorizing sprays? Nice scents make us feel good, especially when paired with freshly cleaned spaces within our home. You can still buy the nice smelling sprays, but you won’t need to when we’re finished deep cleaning your carpet & upholstery. We have methods of odor elimination so powerful, the only thing you’ll smell when we’re done is freshness. Pure clean freshness makes you feel just as good as the most lovely of all air fresheners. Just try it and see for yourself.
“Did you know that Odor Fatigue is a temporary condition where a person becomes acclimated to an odor to the point that they are no longer aware that the odor is present. An example would be when you walk into a barbeque restaurant and by the time you leave, you are unaware of the aroma that attracted you in the door.” http://ow.ly/ec85F
How do we restore carpet to the way it looked, felt & smelled when new? We use Hot Water Extraction or Steam Cleaning with powerful equipment and years of experience. The process consists of spraying a solution of water and detergent into the carpet pile and recovering the water and soil with a powerful vacuum with a holding tank. We use a truck-mounted unit so that only the hose and floor tool are brought into your home and the dirty air & humidity are exhausted outside rather than recirculate around the house. It’s a really powerful system that produces a sparkling deep clean that often amazes the homeowner. It’s easy to forget the original brightness of your carpet after a gradual buildup of dingy soil has accumulated slowly over time.
Do you know why D-I-Y carpet cleaning isn’t recommended? It’s because using some of the rental equipment available can result in yellowing, over wetting, fiber tip damage, severe re-soiling and overuse of detergents. Most rental units available do not adequately clean and may even damage your carpet. Not the best idea no matter how appealing the thought may be. You might find yourself regretting not only spending the rental fee, but wasting your valuable time and effort for less than desirable results.
Our professional carpet cleaning equipment has up to 20 times more power than most rental equipment making your carpet dry faster and our guys know the proper cleaning agents for your situation and can recognize the difference in fibers and carpet construction.
