Environmental Cleaning FAQs:
Q: What does Environmental Cleaning mean?
A: Environmental Cleaning is our name for cleaning things that cannot be seen, like microorganisms. Typically, our cleaning services revolve around cleaning for appearance. Environmental Cleaning is a reduction of organisms that may be potentially troublesome allergens. This can include pollen, household dust or dust mites, animal dander, mold, bacteria, viruses and tobacco smoke residues.
Q: How do I know if I have a problem?
A: Each occupant will have a varying degree of tolerance or intolerance to specific allergens. A “problem” is a relative term as every home will have an abundance of allergens within the structure. Your immune system or overall health will guide you in determining if there is a problem for you.
Q: Can you guarantee your service?
A: We guarantee all of our services will be performed in a professional manner, which will serve as an overall reduction of the microscopic contaminants. It would be impossible to guarantee any health benefits or overall results. We can verify post-cleaning results with meters designed to identify unwanted contaminants, or you can have post-cleaning air testing done.
Q: What exactly do you do?
A: We have a variety of services that range from typical services like carpet cleaning and air duct cleaning to specialized cleanings such as H.E.P.A. cleaning of structure, ambient air filtration, bacterial and virus reduction or control. All services are designed to reduce unwanted contaminants. Services can be completed on a standalone basis or in conjunction with other services.
Q: Why do you say it is cleaning for health?
A: Our cleaning is designed to reduce potentially harmful contaminants whether they are in the air or on surfaces. These irritants act as triggers for those with hypersensitiveness. Reducing the number of contaminants reduces the load that those individuals’ immune systems must combat.
Q: Who might need these services?
A: Anybody that suffers from a respiratory illness, such as asthma or allergies would benefit from environmental cleaning. Those with compromised immune systems, small children or newborns, people recovering from major illness or surgery are also good candidates for environmental cleaning.
Q: What is the cost for Micro Cleaning?
A: The cost of services will vary from home to home. Our services are customized to meet the needs of individual clients. We have services or plans available to meet every cleaning need or budget.
Q: How long does the cleaning last?
A: The amount of time the cleaning will last would depend on the source, how in-depth the cleaning needs to be, and the level of ongoing maintenance. Also, it would depend on the level of hypersensitivities of the occupants.
Q: How do you determine if a job is successful?
A: Our goal or measurement of success is achieved by reducing the total number of potentially troublesome allergens like plant pollens, molds, household dust (dust mites), animal dander, molds, bacteria, viruses, and tobacco smoke residues within your residence.
Q: What does H.E.P.A. mean?
A: H.E.P.A. is an acronym and it stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air, which is the highest rating for air filtration, capable of removing 99.97% of airborne particles that are 0.3 microns or larger.
Q: How often will I need to Micro-Clean my home?
A: That would be impossible to know, as there are many variables that would factor in that equation. That answer would depend on the level of hypersensitiveness of the occupants, level of ongoing maintenance, sources, and contaminants.
