Measles Outbreak on the South Shore

5/28/2019 (Permalink)

A child who tested positive for measles visited several locations on the South Shore in the last week which could have possible exposure to other Massachusetts's residents. This is now the second case to be diagnosed in Massachusetts this year for this highly contagious disease.

The first signs of Measles are high fever, cough, runny nose, & conjunctivitis. Remember to greatly reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses, you should wash and sanitize your hands regularly, especially after using public restrooms, water fountains, or touching doorknobs.

Duct Cleaning

1/14/2019 (Permalink)

If your HVAC system is not properly maintained, dust, pollen and other debris particles can contaminate it. If moisture gets into the system, mold can grow, and mold spores may be released from the system into the air.

However, even the EPA, says air ducts should be cleaned in these cases:

  • If there is visible mold growth on the ducts or on other components of the HVAC system
  • If the ducts are infested with rodents, insects or other vermin
  • If the ducts are clogged with dust and debris
  • If particles are obviously being released into the building from the registers

In the event, that your facility does require duct cleaning, Contact SERVPRO Milton/Braintree 781-341-7007

What Is A Puffback?

Call us and we will be there fast to get your property soot free 781.341.7007

A Puff Back,

Most of us have never heard of a puff back. A puff back occurs when an oil burner backfires, sending soot throughout your home or business. It can happen all at once (like a balloon popping) or more gradually (as if someone was holding the end of a balloon and letting the air seep out slowly). It is usually easy to tell when a puff back has occurred. Soot covers all areas of the home or business and may range from light to very heavy. Sometimes the disbursement of soot is so light and fine it appears to be ordinary dust. This “dust” however reappears hours after being cleaned. There is often a strong odor of oil accompanying a puff back.

If you try to wash the film of soot off of your furniture & walls with ordinary soap & water, it actually smears the soot around without removing it, leaving you (and your walls) rubbed the wrong way. We have to use special chemicals to remove the soot; a washcloth and some warm water is not going to be effective. But as they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of soot not on your walls: having your oil furnace checked and cleaned annually be a service technician will prevent even the grimiest furnaces from spewing into your home.  Best done before winter!  Gas furnaces burn cleaner and do not pose this type of peril. 

There is no easy way to clean up the mess a puff back can make in your home or office, so leave that to us.

Recent Construction leave a mess in your home or business?

Even the most conscientious construction crews leave dirt, debris, and dust at the end of a construction project. With a professional construction cleaning, you can ensure that you'll see the full value of your renovation at the end of the project. With SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree's Professional Construction Cleaning we'll take care of the four major components that can prevent your newly renovated property from looking its best:

  • Debris/Trash

     –Trash is an eye sore to your property and loose debris can cause problems with your neighbors. It can also leave a negative image with future clients or potential buyers. Debris pick up at each stage of the project will make a work area look organized and tidy.
  • Exterior construction clean up 

    – Walkways, entrance ways and patios are the first image visitors see of your new construction area. A typical construction work site will leave hundreds of construction nails and potentially dangerous metal fragments in the yard. Sweeping, power washing and general exterior organization will help keep the site organized and safe.
  • Interior clean up

    – A professional cleaning will include a wipe down of walls, floors, windows and appliances. HEPA Vacuuming and cleaning of all flooring and carpets will safely remove all of the potentially dangerous particles. An extensive detail cleaning will bring out the shine of all windows, lights, door knobs and hinges ensuring that every surface of your project “show ready.”
  • Duct Cleaning 

    - After construction, the inside of an HVAC system can be a scary sight. During construction ultra fine particles collect on air duct surfaces and fall into the crevices of your air duct system. A professional cleaning company will use a “state of the art” portable duct cleaning system using a powerful HEPA vacuum and an air compressor. This service will eliminate irritating dust, remove offensive odors, and improve HVAC operating system efficiency.

Take the final step to truly transform your property by having SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree professionally cleanup your construction project. Reduce stress, maximize the beauty of your property, and enhance the likelihood of a sale with our help.

Heard of HEPA? What is it?

6/18/2018 (Permalink)

Using HEPA filtered air scrubbers will help remove small particles from the air and leave the air we breathe cleaner.

You have probably heard the term HEPA in commercials for vacuums, but what does it mean?  The definition of HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air.

What that means is that air that is passed through a HEPA filter will have 99.7% of particles in the air that are .3 microns or larger. To help put that in perspective the diameter of a human hair is between 50 and 75 microns.  So as you can see a HEPA filter is capable of removing very small, invisible to the naked eye, particles from the air. Those particles could include but are not limited to dust, pollen, mold spores, soot or ash.

Using a HEPA filtered air scrubber or vacuum can help remove these small particles from the air leaving the air we breathe cleaner and remove odors.

At SERVPRO Milton/Braintree we proudly use HEPA filtration in many of our services.

Dirty Ducts?

4/30/2018 (Permalink)

Cleaning you air ducts is an important part of maintaining good air quality.  A typical home will generate and average of 40 pounds of dust each year.  In the area we live we have our windows closed for a good part of the year because of the cold temperatures, keeping that dust inside our homes & businesses. When it gets warm out and the windows open we allow pollen and allergens inside our homes and HVAC systems. 

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

Dirt and debris trapped in your HVAC system should also be removed not only for the quality of the indoor air, but for the efficiency of the system itself as a system with cleaner ducts will perform more efficiently.

It is also important to clean your air ducts if your house or workplace has been affected by fire, smoke, soot or mold.  Any of these conditions may have affected air ducts as soot, smoke and mold spores can be airborne and end up in the duct system.

Having your heating and air conditioning system cleaned and replacing your systems filters with high quality filters can make a huge difference in the quality of the air that is circulating in your home.
