Getting organized and developing a workable cleaning schedule is one of life’s little pleasures. You know it works, and the little-and-often approach keeps everything clean and tidy every day instead of just weekends. But over time you see a few things creep up on you. The gutters are overflowing when it rains. The laundry doesn’t seem to smell as fresh when you iron it. And what is that weird burning odor coming from the oven? These bigger jobs often cause a lot of worries. For all your hard work, you still might not achieve the result you want. It’s time to call in the pros:
If you live in a house, your guttering is likely to be several meters above the top rung of your step ladder. Reaching up and guessing where to poke it to clear it is just plain dangerous. You wouldn’t do that with your chimney stack, so don’t do it with anything else that is above your head. Call in the pros.
You need someone to get up there and see what is causing the blockage before clearing it anyway. Some birds and wildlife are very protected. If they’ve made a nest, you might be required to wait for them to vacate it before you clear it out. If you’re too heavy handed with the cleaning, you might damage the guttering. It would need to be replaced if that happened. Call in the pros and save yourself injury and repair bills.
Ventilation and Flues
Cleaning out your vents and flues is essential. In fact, they should all be regularly maintained to avoid blockages. This will keep them efficient and avoid harmful bacteria and molds accumulating. It can reduce the risk of pests getting in there too. Most importantly, it will reduce the risk of fire.
Think about your tumble dryer. Companies like Capitol Chimney professionally clean all the debris and buildup from the vent and ducts to prevent health hazards and fire risks. We all know to remove the lint from inside the machine, but few of us can get into the exhaust to clean effectively. Another job for the pros.
The problem with ovens is that they are always too hot when you need to clean that spill. By the time it’s cool enough the spill has baked on and turned black. Using chemicals always leaves a residue. You then turn on the oven, and all you can smell is hot chemical odors burning right next to your dinner.
Professional cleaners have a range of powerful tools and can even disassemble parts of your oven to clean thoroughly. Best of all, they can ensure there are no residues and will leave your oven and hob looking brand new. It is a horrible and dirty job, but a professional will do it properly.
Some big cleaning jobs are simply too hazardous for us to tackle ourselves. Some are too dirty to tackle without a lot of expensive, professional tools. But the most important cleaning jobs must be done to keep everyone in the family safe and well. Which jobs do you call the pros out for?
