Water Damage Prevention

Did you know that water damage is among the top 3 reasons that homeowners in Lawton, Oklahoma filed an insurance claim in 2015 (according to a handy little tool on Allstate.com)? Reduce the risk of incurring water damage in your home with these preventative tips.

Common Winter Issues

From our experience in water extraction services, the most common leak prone areas during the winter months are bathroom sinks, outside water faucets, hot water tanks, and attics with plumbing. Recommendations for water damage prevention:

  • IMG_9167
    water damaged bathroom

    Bathrooms – When the temperature falls below freezing, keep bathroom cabinet doors open and leave hot and cold faucets at a steady low stream. These tips are good for all faucets within your home.

  • Outside faucets – Protect outside faucets with an insulated cover. Try not to use outside faucets during the winter. This helps reduce the risk of frozen pipes. If you have a crawlspace under your home, be sure to close vents and ensure pipes are properly insulated during the winter.
  • water damage
    Pipes in the attic are prone to freezing.

    Hot water tanks – The average life expectancy of a water heater is 8-12 years, dependent on many different factors. Tanks that are never drained tend to leak earlier. Click here for more tips from Lowe’s about when to replace a water heater.

  • Attic plumbing – Attic pipes are more prone to freeze. This can cause a major flood in your home. If your plumbing is in the attic, it needs to be properly insulated in order to prevent freezing and bursting.

When Prevention Does Not Work

So you tried to prevent water damage to your home but the elements had another idea? Sometimes the best preventative methods cannot stop a catastrophe from happening. If a flood occurs in your home or business, immediately call a professional cleaning company to perform proper water extraction services. Don’t try to clean up the water damage on your own; mold and bacteria can form in your carpets and walls within hours. Only professional cleaning equipment can safely and completely remove water damage in your home. A Team Carpet Clean offers 24/7 emergency water extraction services to residents and businesses of Comanche County in Oklahoma.

Water Damage Testing Tips

water extraction in processOklahoma has been breaking rainfall records this spring. Due to the excessive flooding, we have been on so many calls for rain water getting in homes. Here are our DIY tips to test your home for potentially harmful moisture that should be removed with professional extraction, cleaning, and drying equipment.

Tips on how to check for “smart” water that could damage or produce a foul odor in the future:

  • Get some toilet paper or a paper towel.
  • Place on floor about 6 inches from exterior walls. Common areas for water to collect are near doors and walls where the yard slopes down towards your home. Moisture is also commonly found coming through cracks in the foundation.
  • With your bare foot, press down as firm as possible. Your carpet cushion or “pad” will absorb 90% of the moisture and spread to dry areas of the cushion. Continue to do this traveling in the direction of the slope of your natural foundation or along the tack strip holding your carpet in place.
  • By applying pressure to the cushion, you will force the “smart” water to the carpet fibers. It’s a hide and seek game, and if you don’t find it now you will smell it later.

If you notice moisture during this test and live in Comanche County Oklahoma, contact A-Team Carpet Clean at 580-713-1018. A professional water extraction and carpet cleaning company should have your home dry again in 24 hours and can provide tips and ideas on how to fix the problem.

Home for the Holidays: How to Clean Your House for Guests

Christmas dinnerThe holidays are fast approaching and many people will host at least one family gathering this year as well as a few overnight guests. Keeping a clean house is not only inviting to others, it is important for the health of you and your houseguests.

Kitchens, bathrooms, beds, couches, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, and especially carpet, tile, and wood floors all become unsanitary through daily use; more so during the holidays. In the cold and flu season it is important that these are cleaned routinely to minimize disease and germ transmission. Something as simple as an oven temperature knob can transmit E. coli to your turkey dinner and make all of your guests sick.

Try the “Top-Down” method to thoroughly clean your home; start with fan blades and dusting bookcases and work down to the floor. Below is a cleaning checklist to assist you in the many cleaning tasks to consider:

  • Dusting – Dust/disinfect ceiling vents, fan blades, blinds, light switches, doorways, doors/doorknobs, walls, and wood furniture (bookshelves, cabinets and handles, dressers, nightstands).
  • Kitchen – Wipe down all kitchen surfaces and clean with disinfectant. This includes: countertops, sink, backsplashes, stovetop, oven, cabinet interiors, fridge exterior, shelves, and handles, microwave interior and exterior, and any other surfaces or appliances that are exposed to weekly use. Pay special attention to tile, grout, and porous surfaces (like granite countertops) since grime in these areas can be stubborn. For professional tile and grout cleaning call a cleaning company such as A-Team Carpet Clean.
  • Bathroom – Clean and disinfect every surface in your bathroom including: walls, mirrors, shelves, shower curtains/curtain rod, sink, water faucet/knobs, toilet, towel racks, TP holder, trash cans, hamper, tile, tub, and faucet/shower head.
  • Guest Rooms – Pay special attention to guest rooms that aren’t regularly used. Clean sheets and bed frames, and use Lysol or a similar product for mattresses and pillows, nightstands, and of course doorknobs. Mattresses can get especially grimy over the years. To get a deep clean on a dirty mattress, call A-Team Carpet Clean. They can have your mattress ready for sheets a few hours after cleaning.
  • Furniture – Vacuum any upholstered furniture, use Lysol to disinfect upholstered furniture in your living room, and hire a professional cleaning company to deep clean and deodorize your upholstery. Clean and disinfect throw pillows, blankets, coffee tables, chairs, media areas, game systems, and lamps/lamp switches.

  • Other Rooms & Stuff – Clean and disinfect any other rooms, basement, appliances, and utilities in the house; washer/dryer, vacuum, humidifier, standing fan, windows, and central air intake.
  • Exterior – Clean and disinfect exterior house surfaces that have daily contact, including; door handles, doorbell, mailbox, garage door controller box/opener.
  • Floors – Vacuum, sweep, and mop or disinfect all floors in your house. Shampoo or steam clean carpets and rugs. Sometimes trying to tackle a stubborn stain alone just makes it worse. Hire a certified cleaning company that offers steam cleaning for your upholstery as well area rug cleaning and carpet cleaning. Contact Chris@ateamcarpetclean.com if you need your upholstery deep cleaned or just touched up. A-Team also offers advanced pet stain and pet odor removal and deodorizer.
  • Prevention – Use Scotchgard to prevent stains from setting in on couches, rugs, and carpets, or call A-Team Carpet Clean to have professional grade Scotchgard or Teflon advanced carpet protector
  • Water Damage & Mold – Pay special attention to water damage and mold (mold is a source for respiratory disease and other sickness). Check basements, bathroom walls and floors, and areas around sinks, washing machines, or water heaters for signs of mold or water damage. Use a mold testing kit if you think an area might be moldy, or call A-Team Carpet Clean who offers mold testing and water damage restoration. They can get deep mold out of couches, cushions, and carpets.

Most house cleaning chores are easy when done regularly. For those difficult jobs during the holiday season, make it easy on yourself and hire a professional cleaning company. Hopefully this checklist will help to break down and keep track of your cleaning efforts.
