The In's and Out's of Cleaning Your HVAC System

When it comes to your HVAC system, the last thing that probably comes to mind is cleaning. Normally, you’d be thinking about how it’s performing when it’s heating or cooling your home. But- did you know that cleaning your HVAC system actually effects how it performs? It’s true! In today’s blog, we’ll explore the different areas of your HVAC system that need attention and the best ways to conquer that grime.

 

Regular Maintenance and Cleaning

As the seasons change, differently allergens and debris are blown around, posing dangers for our HVAC systems and our bodies. It’s important to keep a close eye on your HVAC system during these changes, as additional debris getting stuck in the outdoor unit or extra dirt and dust build up indoors can affect the quality of air throughout your home.

 

Filter Changes

Typically every three months (or 90 days), it’s time for an air filter change. Try not to get the cheapest brand, either, quality is important here. These filter changes make great opportunities to double check the area for anything out of the ordinary- additional debris or grime would be out of the ordinary.

 

Hard to Reach Places

HVAC systems are not the easiest places to clean. Those hard-to-reach places are the areas that accumulate enough dirt, dust, and other grime to spread throughout the entire house (for obvious reasons)! It’s important to focus on these areas, though, because otherwise, you’ll find yourself trying to reach through the air ducts to clean out more grime. If you’re having trouble, don’t hesitate to give the professionals a call.

Steam cleaning is, well, clean!

So you’ve finally bought the sofa that you and your love have been saving up for (saving for far too long, it seems). Here at The Steam Team, we trust that you’ve done your research and have a general idea of how to care for this stunning piece of furniture, but just in case, we’d like to review the basics of how to properly clean and protect your fabric. So stay tuned, and keep that sofa looking gorgeous!

 

When it comes to cleaning your furniture, there are a few things you should know to avoid: Bleach, Ammonia-Based Cleaners, etc.

 

Unfortunately the cleaning process isn’t as simple as wiping your sofa with a soapy cloth! We have to be careful with the materials that we’re using- both the solution, and the cloth.These cleaners, along with anything that isn’t specified to treat leather should all be avoided.

 

Once you’ve found the proper cleaning solution and supplies, it’s time to begin! First, vacuum your sofa thoroughly and carefully. This is to avoid dust and dirt from rubbing into the fabric as you clean and protect. Most commercial vacuum cleaners have attachments and special brushes that will do the job.

 

If you haven’t found a commercial cleaning product that you like, it is safe to use a mixture of water and white vinegar. Vinegar is a reliable cleaner, and completely safe for the environment as well! Beginning from the top, work your way down, using a dampened microfiber cloth to gently clean the surface of your sofa. Make sure to rinse the cloth whenever it’s necessary. Dry your sofa with a fresh towel, and apply your favorite leather conditioner!
