Hurricane Sandy - Severe Flooding and Water Damage

Our hearts go out to all individuals who were affected by this devastating hurricane. We are doing our best to help as many people as we can with regards to flooding and water damage in Staten Island.

A lot of our customers homes are under water with no way for us or anyone to get to them. The images are very sad, seeing homes destroyed and boats in the middle of the street. Hurricane Sandy is by far the harshest storm we have experienced since we have been in business.There has been plenty of destruction in our area and it will be weeks or months before things go back to normal.

We have been getting an overload of phone calls for water damage cleanup however much of the streets are not accessible as of yet. Below are some pictures from around our neighborhood which was hit particularly hard.

Who Are You Sleeping With Tonight??

Are you sleeping with this guy tonight?

Dust mites are the main culprit for allergy sufferers. The bedroom is particularly vulnerable for allergy sufferers as we spend one-third of our life in bed. We shed skin cells constantly which is what the dust mites feed on.

These skin cells are shedding into our sleeping environment, collected by upholstery, mattresses, area rugs and carpeting. All of these areas our ideal breading  grounds for the house dust mite.

Did you know that you get 100,000 dead bodies and thirty million pieces of feces added to your home every single day? A dust mites feces carries withing it certain digestive enzymes which is a significant cause in allergies, emphysema, wheezing and skin/eye irritation.

In order to remove these dust mites, and their dead bodies, and there feces, a deep hot water extraction carpet and upholstery cleaning is recommended.

Regular vacuuming will only remove a very small percentage of them, whereas a high heat deep steam cleaning can drastically lessen an allergic reaction to these unwanted critters.

In large metropolitan cities, dust mites are an even bigger problem. With such a large population living in a small confined space, there is an overload of dead skin cells everywhere, which provides the food and nourishment for a dust mite colony. Our carpet cleaning NYC specialists will do everything they can to help fight against these critters.

Do not share your home with unwanted guests! Call PureGreen today and schedule a deep cleaning of your fabrics and textiles.

Improper Silk Rug Cleaning - Color Run

We get calls all the time from customers who had their rugs destroyed due to improper cleaning methods. Sometimes the damage is so bad that even we cannot fix it 100%.

The fact of the matter is that any handwoven area rug should NEVER be cleaned in your house. Any professional with knowledge about oriental rugs will agree. There are just way to many things that can go wrong. Rug Cleaning in NY is a major part of our business and we offer a free pickup and delivery service for all area rugs which will be cleaned in our state of the art facility.

Below is an example of a beautiful Silk Persian Rug that is very delicate and valuable. The customer who brought it to us had another company clean the rug in her home the same way you would have wall to wall carpeting cleaned. Needless to say, they caused a huge mess. As you can see the dyes on this rug were not stabilized and they bled everywhere. You can barely see the beautiful Ivory Silk patterns anymore because they have been compromised with red dye.

Also, this rug has received significant pile damage. The silk fibers of this rug were over wet and not groomed or dried properly and left very stiff patches which have lost their luster and shine. This may not be reversed.

Hand woven rugs, (especially silk) need to be cleaned in a controlled environment, tested for colorfastness, dried properly and with the right solutions/techniques. Our customer was very upset that her rug received this damage and we will try our best to clean up after the mistake made by the other cleaner.

Although the rug may never look as good as it once did, we can hope for an improvement of about 70-80% in appearance. Moral of the story, Oriental Rug Cleaning NYC should never be done in home.
