2 Quick Fire Safety Tips to Avoid the Need for Fire Damage Services in Mankato, MN

February 9th, 2018 · No Comments

The professional disaster restoration experts at ServiceMaster of Mankato want to wish you happy holidays this year.

We also want to wish you safe holidays.

Come Christmas time, we see elaborate displays both in and outside of the home. It’s important to make sure you’re not putting your Mankato, MN, home at risk with unsafe holiday decorating practices.

Keep the following fire safety tips in mind to avoid the need for fire damage services.

  1. Be Careful with Electricity

Unfortunately, this scenario occurs in thousands of homes across the United States every year.

A homeowner wants to create a huge, beautiful outdoor lighting display. There aren’t enough electrical outlets for all the decorations, inflatable figures, and countless strings of lights, so they plug in a power strip and plug another power strip into the plugged-in power strip.

On the surface, this looks like something you shouldn’t do, but think about it…who thinks a disaster will happen to them? Nobody. It’s a little risky, sure, but everything will work out fine. The saying “better safe than sorry” is popular for a reason. Why take chances and run the risk?

Either find additional outlets to plug in appliances and decorations, or use fewer decorations. Don’t overload the electrical system under any circumstances. 

  1. Discard Your Tree

It’s January, 2018. As usual, you’re tired from the holiday hoopla. You hosted family on Thanksgiving, went Black Friday shopping, set up decorations, wrapped gifts, and cleaned up after all the events.

Your Christmas tree is still standing in the living room long after Christmas, but the tree now looks more brown than green, the needles are quite dry and brittle, and they’re dropping like crazy. “No worries,” you keep telling yourself…you’ll get rid of the tree soon.

Dry Christmas trees are extremely flammable. If you wait too long, you run the risk of needing serious fire damage services in the future.

Yes, you’ve exerted quite a bit of effort this holiday season, but make the last push and get rid of your tree to protect your Mankato, MN, home.

Hopefully, taking these safety precautions will help you avoid the need for fire damage services.

If, however, you have the unfortunate experience of having a fire occur at your home, call us immediately at (507) 388-6339 and we’ll be there to help as soon as possible.

Why You Should Consider Carpet Cleaning Instead of Carpet Replacement for Your Mankato, MN, Home

December 4th, 2017 · No Comments

You’ve had enough. You’re fed up. You’re sick of looking at them.

You see them as you walk up the stairs and reach the landing. You see them in the corner of your eye while you walk through your living room. When you wake up in the morning, you spot them a few feet from where you rest.

What do you see? You see stains.

Stains accumulate slowly. You have one accidental spill at Thanksgiving here and one toddler incident there. You try your best to maintain your carpets appearance by using spot stain remover, vacuum powder, and perhaps even a rented carpet-cleaning machine.

Ultimately, your efforts are in vain. You reach a point where you can’t look in any direction of your Mankato, MN, home without seeing a stain.

“That’s it,” you tell yourself. It’s time to replace your carpets.

Or Is It?

 If it seems like your carpets have reached the point of no return, it’s because you haven’t utilized the services of a professional carpet cleaning company like ServiceMaster of Mankato!

If you had, you’d realize it’s almost never too late to restore your carpets back to their former glory with deep carpet cleaning services only the pros can provide.

Our 3-step process ensures your carpet will essentially look brand new:

  1. Assessment and spot treatment – We’ll assess your carpet to find problem areas and tough stains. Afterward, we’ll use our proprietary spot-treating solution to chemically dismantle the particles tough stains are comprised of. We use a solution you can’t find over the counter!
  2. Thorough deep carpet cleaning – Our machines are built to reach deep into the fibers of your carpets; areas that go untouched by the vast majority of vacuums and carpet cleaning machinery.
  3. Post inspection – After your carpet dries, we’ll review every inch of fabric to ensure your carpet is immaculate. This service also includes post-treatment of those same pre-treated stains to eradicate them for good.

Of course, buying brand new carpet would be an upgrade, but considering the amount spent, you can receive just as much—if not more—value from professional carpet cleaning.

Consider giving your carpet a second chance before you part with it. To learn more about professional carpet cleaning in Mankato, MN, or to schedule an appointment, please contact us at (507) 388-6339.

 

Carpet Cleaning Services for the Holidays in Mankato, MN, by ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca

November 21st, 2017 · No Comments

The holidays for many people mean more friends and family stopping by to visit your Mankato, MN, home.  With more foot traffic in your home it may seem counter-intuitive to have your carpets cleaned before people arrive, but there are some great reasons to do it now rather than later!

Lingering Smells

Living in our homes day in and day out desensitizes us to smells that may linger in our homes and in our carpets. Musty smells, grease, kid or pet odor may be something you’ve just gotten used to, but guests will detect them.  Why let the smells of delicious cooking compete with that? A thorough carpet cleaning will remove the offending smells.

Kids at play

If you’ve got a houseful, chances are you’ve got kids there too. Kids sitting on floors playing with new presents and toys, babies crawling on the floor, toddlers walking and falling, you get the picture. ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca will come in and evaluate the high traffic areas and specially treat those parts of the carpet that children may frequent. You won’t have to worry about the kids crawling around on floors that are dirty and grimy.

Stain Prevention
With more people in the house, more holiday cheer is consumed!  When food and drink is spilled on an already dirty carpet the dirt and grime make it more difficult to lift the sticky substances off the fibers of the carpet. A professional carpet cleaning service scheduled several times a year not only keeps your carpets looking great, it extends the life of your carpet.

Our highly-trained technicians will:

  • Inspect your carpets and evaluate the areas that most need attention.
  • Pre-treat any spots and stains
  • Apply the specialized carpet cleaning solution to loosen dirt and debris
  • Thoroughly rinse your carpets using hot water with commercial-grade equipment
  • Conduct an inspection to post-treat any stains that remain
  • Groom your carpets for quick drying and a uniform appearance
  • Perform a final walkthrough to guarantee your satisfaction

ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca’s trained technicians have been helping people in the greater Mankato, MN, area ring in the holidays with cleaner carpets! We do both residential as well as commercial carpet cleaning services and would be happy to talk to you more about your needs in your home as well as your office to make the season a bit brighter with cleaner carpets!

 

Give Your Waseca, MN, Home the “Spa Treatment” With Residential Cleaning Services

November 1st, 2017 · No Comments

Are you wondering what residential cleaning services entail? Today we’re going to share our full-service offerings that will revitalize your home and give it the look it deserves.

Treat Your Home Right With Residential Cleaning Services

Have you ever received a full spa treatment?

You get a massage, a facial, a manicure, a pedicure, a mud bath, time in the steam room, and little cucumbers covering your eyes while you rest.

Afterward, you feel like a million bucks. It feels like you have a new lease on life. The daily stress of life is washed away and you metaphorically hit the reset button to begin a new phase of productivity.

Why not do the same for your home?

Think about it. Your home likely costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. Don’t you think it’d be wise to invest in it a little bit? Especially when the investment in residential cleaning services pales in comparison to that of the home itself.

With residential cleaning services, you can give your home its own “spa treatment” with the following services:

  • Carpet cleaning – Your carpets are the most heavily trafficked areas of your home. Over time, stains, wear, and tear are inevitable. Our carpet cleaning services will literally extend the life of your carpets by removing materials that degrade the quality of your carpet.
  • Upholstery cleaning – If the carpets are the most heavily worn areas of your home, your upholstery is a close second. From furry pets residing on your cushions to popcorn cheese and soda spills on gameday, you likely have substances residing deep into the fibers of your furniture. Our deep upholstery cleaning can help make your furniture look the way it did when it was delivered to your home.
  • Janitorial services – This aspect of residential services covers everything in between. We’ll comb through your home and make sure every surface, nook, and cranny is cleaned with an eye for detail.

Take a mental snapshot of your home as it appears right now.

Now, imagine it after having gone through a residential cleaning service.

You can almost smell the freshness. You can feel the cleanliness. You know that feeling of the air itself being lighter and more transparent? That’s what you’ll experience with residential cleaning services.

Why You Should Consider Routine Services from Our Janitorial Company in Mankato, MN

October 17th, 2017 · No Comments

Have you ever used the services of a janitorial company in your Mankato, MN home?

If you answered yes, we’re sure you experienced benefits that made the investment worthwhile. There’s nothing like the feeling of a clean environment. You also may have felt the relief of not having to perform the tasks yourself.

Many can see the benefits of using a janitorial company from time to time, but what about routine services on a weekly basis?

 Why Our Janitorial Company Can Be a Difference Maker for Your Mankato, MN Home

 If you own a home in Mankato, MN, many of the items below may be true for you:

  • You have a full-time job
  • You have kids
  • You lack free time
  • You have many responsibilities to juggle
  • You want to enjoy a life outside of work and household duties

If any of the above are true for you (especially if a combination of these items is true), consider weekly cleaning from a janitorial company like ServiceMaster of Mankato.

Maybe you’re thinking to yourself, “Sure, that’d be nice…if I owned a mansion. I don’t need a full-time maid staff. I’m just a regular person.”

You may be right – you don’t need a full-time cleaning staff. But the benefits of a weekly cleaning can go a long way.

Janitorial services can keep you from needing to do spring cleaning every year. It removes a task from a likely full plate of obligations you already have and makes any maintenance you need to do during the week more or less effortless.

Studies have shown links between stress and poor health. One of the ways you can reduce stress is by removing as much friction from your life as possible.

 This could mean ordering household items online instead of dragging yourself to the store, or putting your bills on auto-payment so you don’t have to think about them ever again.

It can also mean utilizing the varied cleaning skills of ServiceMaster of Mankato to permanently give the household responsibilities to a professional.

We can provide janitorial services for your home on a weekly basis, perform carpet cleaning to remove embedded dirt and filth, and upholstery cleaning to extend the life of your furniture.

Let us do the tedious cleaning tasks so you can enjoy the parts of your life that are much more fun than cleaning.

Think about it; a life without major cleaning. Sounds pretty enticing, doesn’t it?

People in demanding professions are smart. They have to be in order to keep up.

The Full Range of Services Provided by Our Commercial Cleaning Company in Mankato, MN

August 31st, 2017 · No Comments

ServiceMaster of Mankato has been serving commercial businesses in the area for years.

Today we’re going to explain some of the different aspects of the services provided by a commercial cleaning company, plus we’ll share some reasons why we’re the company to work with.

Carpet Cleaning

 Visitors and potential clients will notice an unsightly carpet. For businesses with highly trafficked and carpeted areas, carpet cleaning is a must to help mitigate wear and tear, extend the life of the carpet, and maintain a pristine appearance.

As part of the services provided by our commercial cleaning company, carpet cleaning provides the foundation for a well-groomed building or office space.

Floor Cleaning

 We also provide floor cleaning for non-carpeted surfaces. Like carpets, the appearance of your floors matter. From tile to linoleum, you want your floors to have that bright and immaculate appearance. Floor cleaning also provides the benefit of increased safety.

Floors can get dusty and slippery—especially in warehouse settings—so you’ll want to combat against slips and falls by regularly removing dust, dirt, and debris from your floors. You could attempt to do this yourself or you could make the smart and efficient decision to work with a commercial cleaning company like ServiceMaster of Mankato, MN.

Wall and Window Cleaning

 Wall and window cleaning is especially important during non-winter months when insects, bugs, their webs, and other debris can accumulate on the outside of your windows. While the walls inside may not have to deal with Mother Nature, they still need regular cleaning to look their best.

Upholstery Cleaning

Your furniture has a way of accumulating lots of substances to the point the where damage gets severe before it’s even noticed. Take proactive measures with upholstery cleaning services. Our team of trained technicians and high-powered machinery achieve the goal of removing the deep-seated particles residing beneath the surface of your upholstered furniture.

The Full Package 

Combine all of these services together and what do you get?

You get an inviting ambiance, a fresh scent, and a sense of rejuvenation. When you’re in a clean room or building, you can feel and sense it.

The same can be said for the opposite scenario. Do you really want to turn off a potential client with the appearance of your building or office space? It sounds insignificant, but as a business owner you know the smallest of details can make all the difference.
