Stanley Steemer
My wife and I had Stanley Steemer in our home on Monday October 27th. The cleaners showed up on time, and were both very pleasant in appearance and demeanor. The professionalism and care that Nick and Mike provided during our service by far exceeded our expectations. My wife was so impressed with Nick that she assumed he was the owner or manager of the local branch. Much to our surprise, he said that he was just a regular employee. We have never felt so at ease with servicemen in our homes. Our carpets, which are cream in color seemed like a lost cause and this was our last ditch effort to hopefully get a little more time out of them. Much to our surprise, after Nick and Mike finished we were amazed at the nearly new appearance.(our carpet is 10 years old!!!)at first I thought that once they dried they would once again appear dingy and worn, but to my surprise, they dried, and in the time frame the cleaners quoted, and still look great. I highly recommend Stanley Steemer, and would suggest requesting Nick and Mike, those guys know what they're doing.
Tips & Advices
Signs of hidden water damage include:
  • Standing or pooling water
  • Foul odor
  • Texture changes
  • Discoloration
  • Clearwater is clean water with no solids. It includes water generated by air conditioning units and water that goes down the drain while the faucet heats.
  • Greywater refers to all other form of waste water except for toilet water. It possibly contains hair, soap particles, cooking byproducts and flakes of skin. Areas that have been damaged by grey water are at a mild risk of contamination.
  • Blackwater is water that has come into contact with urine or fecal matter. Toilet water is considered blackwater. Blackwater can contain pathogens and is usually considered a biohazard.
Water damage restoration is a process where water-damaged areas are dried, sanitized, and rebuilt.
Home insurance sometimes covers water damage from storm-related accidents. However, most plans do not cover damage resulting from lack of maintenance or floods. For the latter, homeowners should purchase flood insurance.
Regular maintenance will reduce the risk of water damage.
  • Clean and maintain gutters so rainwater flows properly. Direct downspouts away from the house.
  • Repair any roof damage.
  • Use drain snakes to clean clogs. Chemical cleaners erode pipes.
  • Do not place outdoor plants with invasive roots near pipes, septic tanks, sprinkler systems, or drainage fields.
  • Make note of the water bill. A sudden, random spike in charges could indicate a leak.
