Reliable Answers to Our Most Common Questions

Our company is committed to your complete satisfaction, which is why we strive to offer the most consistent, reliable, and affordable housecleaning services around. Our team of experienced professionals has taken the time to answer some of our most frequently asked questions for your convenience.

INSPECTIONS

Common exposure symptoms include difficulty breathing, itchy watery eyes, brain fog (difficulty thinking and focusing), skin rashes, itching, sneezing and coughing.

Inspections average 30-45 minutes.

No. Pure Maintenance provides visual inspections free of charge.

AIR QUALITY TESTING

If you are experiencing common mold exposure symptoms yet cannot find any visible signs of mold or if you need lab results for a doctor, land lord or insurance agency, we recommend air quality testing.

It depends on how many samples you need, but typical sampling takes less than an hour to complete.

Standard air quality testing usually takes between 3-4 business days to return from the lab.

No. Best practices are to keep your home as close to normal use conditions as possible.

TREATMENTS

No. Our patented process creates a dry fog that will not damage electronics.

Yes. Both products used in the process are EPA registered and FDA approved as safe for food contact.

Absolutely. Our patented treatment process uses products that are EPA registered and FDA approved as safe for food contact.

No. Our process will not damage paintings, although we recommend that

We have never had our process damage any photographs. However because we don’t know what chemicals were used to develop photographs before the 1920’s we do recommend that any photos from before that period are removed from the home for treatment.

Average treatment time is 5-6 hours.

Tenants are clear to re-enter the home 1 hour after treatment has been completed. You’ll likely notice a slight vinegar-like odor; this will dissipate within the hour and is not harmful in any way.

We verify that each treatment is successful with post-treatment air quality sampling. Results are sent to an independent third party lab and forwarded via PDF to Pure Maintenance of Washington D.C. After review they are passed along to you, the homeowner.

No. It may kick up a little dust but our patented process does not leave residue.
