Our Recent Entries
Fortunately for all of us, and for the health of the environment in which we live, there is greater awareness today than ever before of the impact human activity has upon the natural environment. Unfortunately, this awareness has not yet translated into a wide-spread, science-based set of standards and practices that we can all apply to our daily activities. So, all of us, consumers and business owners alike, have to sort through a confusing and sometimes contradictory amount of information that has been loosely grouped into a category known as “green”.
1. Try Not to Panic
Without sounding trite, it’s important to try to keep calm when your basement floods. Then, you should focus on your personal safety. Make sure grounded electrical appliances or devices are unplugged in the wet area. If they are plugged in, go to your electrical panel to kill the power to them, then unplug them if possible. Next, focus on getting as many of your water-sensitive goods out of the flooded area, and then determine how the water is getting in. NOTE: Freezer and refrigerator contents may need to be removed.
People often call us looking for help in treating various liquids that have been accidentally deposited on their carpets or area rugs. Unfortunately, often they’ve tried to clean the deposit themselves first (with a spray cleaner or with dish soap), which creates a compounded soiling situation that can result in permanent staining or other complications.

Sometimes people believe that when flood water gets into their carpet, all that’s needed is for the carpet to be cleaned, thinking that the flood water will be pulled up by the carpet cleaning wand. While in some cases this can be true, most of the time a carpet has an underpad beneath it that acts like a big sponge, holding onto the water and necessitating a more thorough approach to ensure drying.
What is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?
It's a term referring to air quality within homes and buildings as it relates to the health of occupants. It's affected by things like microbial contaminants (mould, bacteria), micro-particulates of soils (household dust) and other organic pollutants such as pet dander, tobacco smoke and dust mite faeces.
