DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU !
There's a hidden fire hazard in almost every home...it's the dryer vent! Over time, your dryer vent fills with lint that sneaks by your dryer's filter. Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat build-up, and result in a fire in some dryers. Isolated incident? Not at all. The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that over 15,000 dryer related fires occur each year causing an estimated 97 million dollars in property loss

Techniques For Removing Odors From Carpets !!!
By the time carpet odors reach our noses, the problem may already be quite serious. That doesn’t mean, however, it cannot be resolved. The first step in treating any odor issue is to uncover and remove the source, and then clean the area quickly and thoroughly.
Routine cleaning likely won’t be enough to remove odors once they’ve established themselves in the carpet. Therefore, after removing surface debris, it may be necessary to conduct a deep flushing of contaminants via hot-water extraction using a sub-surface tool.
Even then, hot-water extraction alone may not be enough for strong or offensive odors. In these cases, it’s necessary to also apply a deodorizing agent or odor neutralizer. This is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Although there are some broad-spectrum neutralizers, most products are designed for specific odors (mildew, food, human waste, etc.).
It’s important that cleaning technicians know the source of a smell before treating it. They must also understand the proper decontamination agents for various types of odors. Deodorization can fail when someone uses the wrong chemical.
We suggests testing the chemical on a small patch of carpeting to see if the treatment will work before neutralizing an entire carpet. There’s no point in wasting money on labor and chemicals for a process that ultimately won’t work.
If the neutralizer appears to alleviate the odor, continue with a topical treatment of the entire area. If a carpet is not glued down, we will often detach it from the tack strips and also treat the carpet backing.
“We want the neutralizer to make contact with whatever is causing the odor. This process allows our team to asses any odor issues with the sub-floor and to replace affected padding, if needed.
