Air Duct Cleaning & Sanitizing

Rotobrush sytemMost people are now aware that indoor air pollution is an issue of growing concern and increased visibility.
Pride of Los Angeles specializes in delivering services to improve the quality of your indoor air. These services vary in cost depending the size of the system or systems.

If not properly maintained, ducts may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris and allergens. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the home's living space.

Methods of duct cleaning vary, although standards have been established by industry associations concerned with air duct cleaning. The method used by Pride of Los Angeles is the Rotobrush System which involves cleaning and vacuuming each individual duct after removing every register.home duct cleaning

In addition, Pride of Los Angeles technicians will apply a chemical biocide, designed to kill microbiological contaminants, to the inside of the duct work. Applying chemical treatments (sealants or other encapsulants) to encapsulate or cover the inside surfaces of the air ducts to prevent the release of dirt particles from ducts is also recommended.

 

Dryer Vent Cleaning

Did you know that dryer vent fires are more common than chimney fires?

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports dryer related home fires are on the increase. CPSC figures show that in one year alone there were 16,800 dryer fires which caused 30 deaths, 430 injuries and 97.3 million dollars in property damage.

Dryer vent cleaning improves the safety and efficiency of your dryer. As dryer vents become filled with lint and other debris, drying time increases and can cause the dryer itself to overheat. This increases energy consumption since the dryer has to run longer and can also cause fires in the dryer or the dryer duct.

Some dryer vents are relatively short and straight and can be cleaned easily by the homeowner, but others aren't that easy and may require the use of special tools and equipment.

While dryer vents are routinely blocked by lint, animal nesting is another frequent cause of blockage.

So don't take a chance -- put your family's safety in the hands of a professional. It will protect them against potential fire and save you money as well -- two great reasons why you should think about your dryer vent and act now.

Fabric Protectants

Pride of Los Angeles incorporates the use of DuPont (tm) Teflon Advanced carpet and upholstery protector and prices it at an affordable rate in order to encourage its use.

For even greater protection on delicate fabrics, the use of PrideSeal is often recommended.

  

Drapery Cleaning (On-Site)

drape cleaning serviceOften we are requested to clean intricate drapery installations and cornice boxes. Homeowners do not want to go through the hassle of dismantling difficult installations and then being without window coverings. Pride of Los Angeles technicians can freshen or dry-clean soiled drapes on site. Both involve vacuuming, by hand, from ceiling to floor, whether drapes are lined or unlined. No shrinkage occurs. The cleaning is done by hand by a 2-man team and ladders whenever needed.

 

Water Damage Repair

Water damage to your home can be costly and time-consuming. It's important to remedy the situation quickly to avoid exacerbating the problem - or creating a new one, such as mold or rot. Symptoms of a roof leak, failing water heater, or plumbing problem may present quickly; sometimes, you might not notice the signs until major damage has occurred. Here are a few areas to check regularly in your home.

  • Watch for discoloration and/or soft spots on your ceiling and walls. These may be signs of a plumbing or roof leak.
  •  Keep your rain gutters clear of debris. Rainwater that collects in them may damage your eaves and roofing material.
  • Check for dampness in under-sink cabinets and for water escaping at plumbing joints.
  • Cracks on your shower or bathtub grout/caulking indicate that you do not have a watertight seal.
  • A small amount of mold in or on cabinetry is not uncommon in areas with high humidity. Cleaning with a 50/50 solution of water and bleach should clear it up. If it returns, there may be a bigger problem, so it's a good idea to have a specialist check it out.

Pride of Los Angeles stocks a large inventory of dryers and dehumidifiers and the technical expertise to handle most residential floods. Most common household floods are caused by defective plumbing fixtures, outdoor rising water, leaking water heaters, and roof leaks. Using the powerful vacuum of our truckmount, extraction of water is done by the technicians quickly and efficiently prior to disinfecting and setting up drying equipment.

  

Deodorization & Disinfection

Appropriate safe chemicals are used to eliminate odors from pets, moisture, mildew, and other malodors that cause irritation and allergy. While complete removal of certain odors (such as cat urine) cannot be guaranteed, best efforts are taken to accomplish the task. 

  

Tile & Grout Cleaning

 

Many homes have lovely tile floors with grout joints that become dirty over time. One has only to look at the edges of a tiled floor to see the original grout color to realize how much dirt has built up in the grout joints near the sink or range. Our equipment combined with the appropriate cleaning product renews the original beauty to most tile floors.

Pride of Los Angeles cleaned our fairly new wall-to-wall carpet for the first time in 2008. We were startled to see the beautiful results! The carpet was bright, spotless and best of all, dried completely overnight. One of our pet peeves was having a clean but drenched carpet...we had no worries with Pride of Los Angeles. We're convinced - Pride of Los Angeles is the best! We will continue to call on them for our carpet cleaning services and gladly recommend them to family, friends and business contacts.
