Oh, Dear!

Biohazard Oh, Dear! Some disasters are more natural than others.

Hunting season has started in Mississippi! Most people by now have gotten their fields ready and will soon be sitting in stands eagerly awaiting that first deer. But not many are expecting to walk into their home or business to be greeted by one. Although it's not a call we get very often, we actually have gotten quite a few to clean up the aftermath of deer jumping through windows. When this happens, the deer has usually ran throughout the building destroying everything in its path. Due to obvious injuries, there's also usually a good bit of blood left behind. Trained SERVPRO of Meridian Professionals will ensure the structure is properly cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized. Please refer to our Biohazard Emergency Tips - Until Help Arrives Guide and follow these tips to protect yourself and your property.

Are Your Ducts Ready for Fall?

Cleaning Are Your Ducts Ready for Fall? Having your air ducts cleaned by a professional can help prepare your HVAC system for cooler weather.

Your HVAC system has been working hard all summer, but the cooler months are just ahead. Here are five things you need to do to get your HVAC system ready for Fall

Change your air filters. Your HVAC system needs a clean flow of air to run efficiently. When your air filters are clogged, that air is not flowing freely and your energy costs are going up. Plus, it puts more wear and tear on the system, driving up repair costs and shortening its life. Once a month, change your air filters to prevent problems. 

Clean the outside unit. You should remove any dust and debris from the unit. The accumulation can decrease the efficiency of the unit. Remove twigs, branches and leaves from inside and around the unit. A quick hose down will remove any pollen or dust. It is also a good time to inspect the unit for any damage. This is something you need to do in the spring also to keep the system running year round. 

Get your heating and cooling system checked. At least once a year, you should have your heating and cooling system checked by a professional. Routine maintenance will keep the system running smoothly. While doing the maintenance, the technician may also find minor issues that are easily fixed. Catching small problems early will prevent them from becoming major later on. And that can end up costing you a lot more. 

Program your thermostat. Autumn can bring some wild weather patterns, with some days hot and some days cool. Make adjustments to your thermostat's programming to handle these fluctuations. If you don't already have a programmable thermostat, getting one this fall is a great idea. It will save you money while keeping your home more comfortable. 

Call SERVPRO of Meridian to schedule cleaning of your air ducts. The inside of your home's air ducts is likely coated with pollen, dust, dirt, debris and odors. To keep your home's air clean this winter, get a professional to come out and do an air duct cleaning. It is not something you need to do every year, but definitely something to do every couple of years. Taking a few minutes to get your HVAC ready for fall will give you the warmth you need as the cooler air set in.

For questions with air duct cleaning, call the professionals here at SERVPRO of Meridian.
