Why Savvy Mt. Pleasant Companies Outsource Their Cleaning

We know Mt. Pleasant companies fit a lot into the workday. Unfortunately, the byproduct of all that work is dirt – dirty walls, dirty floors, dirty drapes, dirty furniture. It’s might seem like your company has the resources to handle all that dirt in-house. Here’s a few reasons why it’s better business not to.

Uninterrupted Maintenance

When that seasonal flu sweeps through the office, you have enough to handle without wondering who is going to clean the floor. Professional cleaning services are committed to consistently caring for your facilities, so you never have to worry. They have a qualified pool of substitutes for holidays, sick days, or when employees just have to attend that family function.


Cleaning services assuming their own operating costs. This means your company doesn’t need to budget for equipment and supplies, recruiting qualified maintenance staff, or adding more employee benefit packages. All of this lets your company focus its resources on the thing that really matters – growing your business.

High Standards of Cleanliness

When you outsource your office cleaning, you should hire people who make it their job to adhere to the highest industry standards. They will track recommendations for methods and products, as well as observe any regulatory guidelines regarding sanitary conditions. They train their staff to provide the safest, most effectual, and thorough cleaning possible.

Protecting Your Company from Legal Liability

Industrial cleaning can be a hazardous occupation, and requires a tailored insurance policy. If your company cleaners are in-house, you shoulder the burden of providing that insurance. You could also potentially face any litigation related to workplace accidents. By contracting your cleaning services instead, that company will assume liability and cover the costs of additional insurance.

Access to Specialized Maintenance Services

Do your office carpets need cleaning? When was your HVAC system last serviced? Are you prepared to deep-clean that high ceiling? Chances are, even if you assemble an in-house janitorial team, your company will still spend time and money hiring outside cleaners for certain jobs. When you outsource your office cleaning to a qualified company you will be able to select from a wide range of services. And you will see better prices than shopping for each individually.

Cleaning Your Dryer Vents can Extend the Life of Your Dryer

Is Your Dryer Working the Way It Should in Mason?

Most of us want to plan and save to buy new appliances. Having to make a big purchase unexpectedly can be a real burden on a family, not to mention inconvenient. Although most of us are aware that a clogged dryer vent can result in a dangerous fire, did you know that it can also shorten the life of your dryer? The best way to keep your dryer working as long as should is properly cleaning the vent.

How Does a Dryer Vent Work?

Air that has passed through the dryer’s heating element is drawn through the clothes and then into the holes in the dryer door. From there it enters the space in the bottom the door and where an exhaust duct is covered by your lint screen. A fan sucks the now moist air out of this duct, and vents it outdoors. This allows more heated dry air to pass through your clothes.

Dirty Vents and Broken Dryers

Because the lint screen is not one-hundred percent effective at filtering lint, threads, and other debris, some of this ends up in the dryer vent, the exhaust duct, and the dryer hose. Eventually the obstruction begins to interfere with your dryer’s performance. You may notice that it takes longer and longer for a load of clothes to dry, or that the clothes seem dangerously heated when you take them out of the dryer. You could also notice a burning smell, or that the outside of the drying unit is too hot to touch when it runs.

How Does Dryer Vent Cleaning Extend the Life of Your Dryer?

When your dryer doesn’t vent properly, your dryer has to work extra hard to dry your clothes. This added wear and tear can lead to a breakdown. Plus, because your dryer runs longer, you waste energy. At the end of the day, between what you save on repair and energy costs, a regular dryer vent cleaning will practically pay for itself.

Keeping Vents Clear

It’s important that your dryer ducts are no smaller than four inches in diameter, and that the outdoor vent cover opens easily. You should also regularly clean your lint trap. If you want to take further steps at home, it is possible to disassemble and clean the dryer vent and hose yourself. A shop vacuum and some mechanical know-how are all it takes.

However, the best and simplest way to clean your dryer vent is to call the professionals at Modernistic. We have all the expertise and equipment to make this cumbersome chore no more difficult than dialing our number. Watch what we can do here, then contact us today, and schedule your appointment!
