It is that time of year again!  With the holidays right around the corner, you are more than likely in the cleaning mode.  While frantically trying to get your home spic and span, especially for your holiday family, SERVPRO of Rolla has a gift for you.  SERVPRO of Rolla wants to provide you with a couple of holiday cleaning tips.

Carpet Cleaning Tips

  • If you have wax on your carpets, place a slightly damp towel on the wax.  Next, place a iron on top of the towel for approximately 10-60 seconds (using your best judgment), then remove.  Keep checking until the wax is completely removed.
  • Do you have kiddos?  if you do, chances are that you have gum or crayon stains on your carpets and or floors.  SERVPRO of Roll has effective SERVPRO specialized products designed just for those needs.  Contact SERVPRO of Rolla to see how we will make it "Like it never even happened."

Garbage Disposal Odor Cleaning Tricks

  • If your garbage disposal is giving off an odorous smell, simply place an orange or lemon down the drain.  Run the garbage disposal and wow, it is like the smell never even happened!
  • To get rid of a smelly stench, sprinkle about a half cup of baking soda into the disposal, followed by a cup of white or apple cider vinegar.  let the mixture bubble up and sit for 5-10 minutes.  Then, turn on the disposal and run water to distribute the mixture throughout the unit.  What a great deodorizer.

Our team here at SERVPRO of Rolla hope that you get some use out of a few of our holiday cleaning tips.

Tips to Prevent Frozen Pipes This Winter

11/12/2020 (Permalink)

It is that time of year that we are forced to be aware of frozen pipes.  Winter weather is fast approaching and we would like to give a few tips to help prevent your pipes from freezing.

Do you know all the tips and tricks of protecting pipes from freezing?  Frozen pipes are often those exposed to the cold weather, such as those that are located outside of your home.  Additional cold areas to watch out for are areas such as basements, attics, and garages.  Here are some frozen pipe prevention tips to help you out;

  • Be prepared.  Check your foundation, and locate all vents.  Place foam insulation to block off those vents leading to crawlspace areas.
  • When weather is extremely cold, let water drip from faucets that may come from exposed pipes.
  • Open kitchen cabinets to let warm air circulate around plumbing lines.
  • Keep your heat set to the same temperature both day and night.  In extreme cold weather you may want to raise the temperature in the home slightly.
  • In the worst case, turn off the main water valve while the house is unoccupied.  This will ensure that if a pipe freezes and breaks, the water loss will be limited only to the water contained within the pipe.

A frozen pipe that burst in your home can cause considerable damage to your property if not addressed quickly.  Make sure to always know where your shut off valve is located and call SERVPRO of Roll if the need arises.

SERVPRO of Rolla is always here to help in our community and surrounding areas 24 hours a day and 7 days a week for all of your needs.
