Air Duct Cleaning SERVPRO East Greenville County cleaning Air Ducts in a local apartment complex.

As things heat up, we have a tendency to spend more time inside. One of the most overlooked items when it comes to our health, is the air that we breathe.

Your HVAC system draws in air from within your home, running past a filter, cooling it down and then introducing it back into your home. That is the short version of what happens. It is a bit more complicated than that, but in a nut shell that is what happens.
There are a number of things that can and should be done to make sure that the air that you breath is the best it can be.

Monthly Filter Changes
 - It is recommended to change your air filters out monthly. In addition to making sure you are not breathing in cool dirty air, it will help your HVAC stay healthy. It will also reduce the amount of dirt that gets past your filter and begins to build up on your air ducts that run throughout your home.

Air Duct Cleaning
 - Perhaps one of the most over looked maintenance item within a home, is the cleaning of air ducts.
Your air ducts are essential for maintaining comfort in your home. They circulate air from your heating and cooling systems to every room, ensuring a cozy environment year-round. However, when neglected, these ducts can become a breeding ground for dust, pollen, mold, and other debris. This buildup of pollutants can impact the air quality in your home and pose a risk to your family's health. That's why regular duct cleaning is crucial. Here's why:
Improve Indoor Air Quality: The air that flows through your ducts is the same air you and your loved ones breathe. Unfortunately, it can contain contaminants like pet dander, dust, chemicals, and even carbon monoxide. These substances get pulled into your HVAC unit and, over time, accumulate in your ducts. When the system is running, these pollutants re-enter your living space, potentially causing respiratory issues and allergies. By cleaning your ducts regularly, you can eliminate these harmful particles, improving the air quality in your home and safeguarding your family's well-being.

Boost HVAC Efficiency: As dust and debris accumulate in your ducts, they can obstruct airflow. This leads to uneven distribution of conditioned air, creating uncomfortable hot and cold spots throughout your home. To compensate, your HVAC unit works harder, consuming more energy and driving up your utility bills. By clearing away this debris, air can flow freely, allowing your system to operate at peak efficiency. Not only will this improve your comfort, but it will also save you money in the long run.

Say Goodbye to Awful Odors: 
Get rid of unpleasant smells in your home caused by paint fumes, tobacco smoke, cleaning agents, mildew, and food. Our professional air duct cleaning eliminates stale odors that are trapped in the ductwork, ensuring that they don't continue to circulate throughout your home. We also remove bacteria, mold, and the disgusting smells they emit. Plus, we'll clear out any droppings or decomposing critters that may be hiding in your ducts, discouraging insects from nesting. Say hello to a fresh-smelling home again!

Cleaner Home and Breathe Easier: 
Dust particles can accumulate in your ductwork when your HVAC unit is off, only to be recirculated when you turn it on. This leads to excessive dust settling on your furniture, bedding, floors, and more, making it a constant chore to keep your home clean. But with our air duct cleaning services, you can prevent these pollutants from continuously entering your house. Enjoy a cleaner living environment for a longer period of time, and spend less time dusting and more time relaxing in a pristine home.

Don't settle for subpar air quality. Count on SERVPRO of East Greenville County to make your indoor air "Like it never even happened."

Having Your Carpet Professionally Cleaned

10/24/2021 (Permalink)

Protect your investment by calling us to clean and maintain your carpet and upholstery.

Professional cleaning is a must to fully clear out the carpet. Although vacuuming every once in a while can help the surface, letting an expert get into the nitty-gritty of your carpet for cleaning is the best way to lengthen the life of your rug. Generally speaking, carpets should be professionally cleaned at least twice every year.

With Allergy-Prone Occupants

Certain carpet fibers can collect many dust and mold particles that may be floating in the air. This can’t be removed by pure vacuuming alone, and it can be dangerous to leave it as is for a long time when there are allergy-prone occupants.

With Pets In The Home

Pets also spend a big amount of their time on the carpet, susceptible to any of the dirt on the mat too. Plus, your little furry friends may even cause stains and scents affecting the appearance and condition of your rug. Protect the carpet by having a cleaner come regularly.


It can be a matter of preference and circumstances when deciding how often you should be calling up your professional carpet cleaner. Either way, be sure to clear the mold, dirt, dust, and more that can collect on your carpet.

The Benefits of Cleaning Your Carpet

The SERVPRO System offers a number of cleaning options to match any type of upholstery or carpet.

If not regularly cleaned, the carpets at your Greenville, SC property may contain germs, bacteria and dust. These small particles can easily hide in your carpet and potentially cause health problems. Carpet cleaning prevents the spread of these microorganisms and helps carpets to keep their best appearance. Here are three reasons why you should consistently clean the carpets at your property:

Carpet Mites and Bacteria

Carpet mites are very small bugs that can easily hide in your carpets since they are not visible to the naked eye. These mites also known as dust mites, can get into the air and cause allergies and breathing problems. 

Indoor Air Quality

A dirty carpet may contain dust, germs, and bacteria that can be released into the air, making the space unsafe to breathe in. Regularly cleaning your carpets will improve the indoor air quality in your home or business. 


We all want our carpets to look their best. Taking good care of their cleaning will not only increase their life and durability but will also make them look new. 

Here at SERVPRO of East Greenville County, we offer different carpet cleaning options, call us today and we will keep your carpets clean and new.

SERVPRO Of East Greenville County - Spring Carpet Cleaning

3/17/2017 (Permalink)

A recent carpet cleaning service completed by SERVPRO Of East Greenville County.

Today I wanted to talk about the upcoming ending of Winter and the start of Spring. If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, Winter technically ends March 20th. With Spring quickly approaching, I wanted to talk a little about "Spring Cleaning." This post primarily focuses on getting your carpets cleaned this spring.

A study shows that nearly 79% of soil in carpet is considered dry soil. Owning and using a quality vacuum is a key process in cleaning & maintaining your carpets. Carpets tend to act as a filter. They trap everything from dust to animal hair, to dead skin cells. 

Professional Cleaning:  Professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you'll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of the carpets. Dirt typically accumulates in layers, and when carpet looks dirty to the eye, you are typically only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. Even the highest quality items can show soiling. SERVPRO Of East Greenville County Professionals will get the job done right. For a cleaning backed by state-of-the-art equipment and over 40 years of experience and professionals trained to the highest standard, protect your investment by giving us a call at 864-292-3495. We look forwards to the opportunity to do great work for you.
