Nooks and Crannies: Overlooked Danger Zones in Your Home

Cleaning your nooks and crannies. Look who is hiding in "those" places.

Here at SERVPRO of East Evansville we see a lot of “those” places in homes that are frequently neglected when cleaning. These neglected areas are often the source of why we have been called out. “Those” places, those (nooks and crannies), serve as perfect environments for microbial growth, rodents, and insects. They can be potential fire or floor hazards. Here are a few overlooked areas to check and clean in your own home.

Appliances: Pet hair, food, and other random objects often end up under refrigerators and stoves. Mice in particular love to nest in and around gas powered appliances. It’s good to pull everything out at least once a year to clean thoroughly. Also inspect your appliances once a year for damaged cords and potential leaks. Make sure your dryer vent is clear of lint and obstructions, not pinched or broken, and securely vented outside.

Plumbing: Pull everything out from under your sinks and inspect pipes for leaks. Look around the edges of your bath/shower and toilet for any discoloration or damage to the caulking seal. Discoloration can indicate mold growth and broken seals can allow water and mold to damage the flooring beneath your tile, carpet, etc.

Electronics: Dust, pet hair, and other debris can accumulate around cords and power strips which can result in fire. Having too many electronics plugged in can also cause a fire. Minimize and organize your cords, inspect them for damage, and clean behind them often.

If you should find signs of mold during your home inspection and cleaning of “those” places, SERVPRO of East Evansville is here to help, just call (812)-471-3132.

A Green bucket full of cleaning supplies SERVPRO of East Evansville has all the cleaning supplies to get your home smelling new and fresh again.

CLEAN HOMES SELL FASTERIt's impossible to know what motivates a home buyer. If you're selling a home in Newburgh, Henderson, KY or anywhere in the Tri-State area a key thing to know is the first impression is often the most lasting impression. That impression starts before they even enter the home. Most realtors agree that a clean home sells faster. While sprucing up the yard pay extra attention to the entryway potential buyers will take to enter the house. Once inside the kitchen is an obvious place to start but reducing clutter in closets and throughout the house will go a long way in making a great first impression.

DON'T LET A BAD SMELL GET IN THE WAY OF THE SELLIf tidying up still leaves you with a lingering odor it may be time to call SERVPRO of East Evansville. The first and most important step in odor control is eliminating the source of the smell. Musty smells can be a sign of a mold or water problem. Along with the smell, tobacco smoke often sticks to walls and stains surfaces that painting alone will not fix. Pet odors bring unique challenges because they often have access to areas of the house that homeowners may be less likely to visit. Heavy lint buildup on registers can be a sign of dirty ducts that may also be holding onto unpleasant smells. All purpose cleaning products work well for general cleaning. Grease or protein based solutions don't work as well on smoke smells so using the appropriate cleaning product matters.HERE TO HELPIf you need help with duct cleaning, mold remediation, water damage or eliminating unpleasant smells you can call the pros atSERVPRO of East Evansville at 812-471-3132.
