You might have spent a good part of your COVID-19 shelter-at-home days working from home, watching movies, playing board games, enjoying conversations via Zoom, and so on. While there is nothing wrong with some self-care and relaxation during these stressful times, it is time to put things in order and prepare your office and home for life post-pandemic.
As businesses are reopening, you may want to hire professional cleaners for your residential or commercial property, to ensure everything is clean and safe before you settle back into a routine. But with so many home cleaning service providers in the market, how do you evaluate their reliability and pick someone that will deliver quality work? That’s simple: choose a reputable home service provider that has all the necessary certifications in place!
Certified Air Duct Cleaners
Sanitizing and cleaning your home’s air ducts must be your first step towards a healthier life amidst the threat of coronavirus. Several studies have shown that health of people with respiratory and pulmonary issues improves drastically once their residential air ducts are professionally cleaned.
Because the novel coronavirus attacks the respiratory system, it is vital to ensure that the air your family is breathing in is as clean as possible. Researchers have found that droplets of coronavirus can stay airborne for 10-15 minutes, during which your HVAC unit absorbs the particles into the air ducts and circulates the virus in other connected rooms.
Regular air duct cleaning by a NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) approved service provider, like United Home Services, ensures your ducts are functioning at optimal efficiency. Different bacteria and viruses can quickly accumulate in these ducts, so we go the extra mile in keeping your air ducts clean from harmful allergens and pollutants.
At United Home Services, our professional expert cleaners are certified and trained in using industrial-grade disinfectants to keep the air ducts free from contaminants. We have access to state-of-the-art chemicals that can eradicate even the tiniest traces of coronavirus from your ducts.
Our potent disinfectants will thoroughly clean your air ducts from inside out, so much so that you will be able to tell the difference in your indoor air quality right away!
Benefits of Hiring NADCA-Certified Air Duct Cleaning Service
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association is a non-profit organization that makes sure all the members commit to the highest standards for cleaning, safety, and evaluation of air ducts.
As a homeowner, you naturally want to hire a reliable company to handle the cleaning, repairs, or maintenance at your home. By hiring a NADCA-certified company, you will be able to reap the following benefits:
Continuing excellence: Air duct cleaning companies need to meet an extremely strict criterion in order to become certified by NADCA. At least one staff member must pass the NADCA exam and then attend regular seminars to maintain their certification.
In other words, NADCA certification is not a one-and-done deal. Our NADCA-certified staff members at United Home Services must attend the seminars and further their industry education each year. Failure to do so can cause us to lose our license – which we do NOT take lightly.
Extensive knowledge: Passing the NADCA exam requires thorough knowledge in HVAC design, indoor air quality, cleaning tactics, field experience, mechanical expertise, and much more.
If an air duct cleaning company has a NADCA certificate, it means their staff has the best practical knowledge in the industry, making them best equipped to handle your residential or commercial air ducts system.
Higher standards of quality: If you haven’t had anyone clean your home’s air ducts or you are suffering from symptoms of poor-quality indoor air, we can help.
The cleaning crew at United Home Services can assess and specify exactly what needs to be cleaned, i.e., air ducts, drains, registers, coils, grills, etc., and offer you a detailed explanation of how they will handle it. Our cleaning equipment exceeds the industry standards, and our customer service is second to none.
To be a member of NADCA and maintain that status, we follow the stringent requirements that show a higher standard of quality assurance and performance, including:
- We maintain general liability insurance
- We clean according to the NADCA standards, ACR, and NADCA’s Code of Ethics
- We have NADCA-certified air systems cleaning specialist (ASCS) in our team
You may come across numerous fly-by-night air duct cleaners that don’t follow proper procedures and don’t carry any liability insurance. Working with these contractors is a gamble; they can end up damaging your HVAC systems with their less-than-proper knowledge and lack of expertise. You may even have heard horror stories of contractors who disappeared into thin air as soon as they cashed their customers’ checks, leaving behind more issues than solutions!
Don’t risk your home or your money! Hire a fully-certified NADCA member and save yourself from potential trouble and losses.
Certified Chimney Cleaners
Since we specialize in several home services, it’s only fair that we hold certifications for each service we provide. As we said earlier, we take our jobs very seriously and want to ensure that our customers feel we are doing the best we can for them.
This includes getting certified from the National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG), which is considered the gold standard in chimney cleaning and maintenance services in the US. To get the NCSG certificate, the staff members of a chimney sweeping company must pass multiple examinations.
One of the best ways to ensure home service professionals can truly keep your home safe from the dangers associated with chimneys, fireplaces, and venting systems is by engaging with a NCSG-certified company.
A chimney is a pivotal structure in a home. If it doesn’t work properly, at the very least, it can cause damage to your home. At the very worst, it can cause severe injury, death, or destruction of your property.
Benefits of Hiring NCSG-Certified Chimney Cleaners
The chimney sweeping industry is largely unregulated, which means it can be tough to know if a company’s credentials are as legit as they claim to be. Before you hire someone to sweep or repair your chimney, keep in mind that an improperly cleaned chimney can be disastrous for your home and family.
This is why it’s crucial to hire a company that has an independent third-party certification. And since the National Chimney Sweep Guild is a non-profit, nationally-recognized association with strict regulations, you can be sure that their members – like United Home Services – are adhering to the highest standards of quality and safety.
Since 1977, companies in the US and Canada have been seeking the NCSG certifications to establish their reputation in the industry, this means that for over 43 years, American homeowners have been trusting NCSG to help them find a qualified and reliable chimney cleaning company.
