Get your air ducts cleaned before school starts

Lansing: Have you added air duct cleaning to your back-to-school checklist?

School’s starting. That means a lot of new to-dos: you need to buy supplies, work out your new schedule, and finish up any summer assignments. And you want to make sure your home is neat and tidy so that you and your family can start the year with your best foot forward. But have you considered adding air duct cleaning to your back-to-school checklist?

We know it’s not on everyone’s list, but here are some reasons why you may want to add it to yours.

Fight allergies

Many airborne allergens are seasonal, but when they accumulate in your air ducts, they become a year-round hazard. A swift cleaning removes pollen, pet dander, and other allergens, providing relief just in time to start the school year off right.

Stay healthy

It’s not just allergens that are a problem. Over time, mold spores, mildew, and bacteria can also build up in your air ducts. As these circulate in the air through your home, they contribute to illness and even respiratory diseases such as asthma.

Improve your air quality

Even if your air isn’t actively making you sick, it can put a strain on your body. Clean air brings more oxygen to your lungs, helping you breathe easier and sleep more deeply. So by cleaning your air ducts, you and your family can stay fresh and alert for the new school year.

Get your tile cleaned before the semester starts

Posted Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

It’s more than just a dirty grout and tile problem

We spend a lot of time cleaning school districts in the Lansing area, and that means we see a lot of tile: in kitchens, bathrooms, and sometimes even classrooms. These are large areas, and they’re usually too big for thorough treatment by the in-house janitorial staff. If you haven’t checked in a while, your tile could be due for some special attention. Here why you should add professional tile cleaning to your back-to-school checklist.

Cut back mold, mildew, and other allergens

Grout doesn’t get dirty just from dirt: because it’s a porous material, it can grow mold, mildew, and harmful bacteria. This can lead to allergy trouble for both your students and faculty. While a good mopping can get rid of a lot of grime, it doesn’t cut down on the mold. And by adding moisture to the environment, it can even make the problem worse. A professional cleaning can rid you of this problem, ensuring your students have a healthy start to their year.

Prevent small problems from becoming a big issue

Right now your tile might just look a bit scratched and worn. But with school back in session, your tile is about to experience a lot more traffic. As in most situations, a bit of preventative maintenance now can keep you from having to close off parts of your facility for repair work. At Modernistic, we always finish our tile cleaning by putting down a layer of sealant, which prevents staining and makes the floors easier to clean in the future. We can also draw attention to any cracks in the tile or grout work so you can address them before they get worse.
