What services does INTEK offer?
INTEK provides an array of services to tackle jobs of any size or severity. Whether you require standard cleaning services or something more specialized, their team is equipped to assist. View a full list of services here.
INTEK covers carpet cleaning, furnace and duct cleaning, mold remediation, tile cleaning, and janitorial services. However, it doesn’t end there. They’re also able to clean and restore spaces and items damaged by water or fire. In a city like Sioux Falls, which has experienced multiple floods per summer in recent years, having a trusted provider for water restoration is critical.
Todd Lubenow, INTEK’s Director of Marketing, says many people are unaware of the restoration that’s possible when property is exposed to fire and smoke. The damage is often extensive, but the thorough, experienced professionals at INTEK can work wonders.
Their team will come into a home or business after a fire, remove its contents, and transport them to their warehouse for storage. While the items are being stored and cleaned at the warehouse, INTEK’s team also attends to the building’s damage. After everything has been restored at the property, INTEK transports the cleaned items back to their home. The customer doesn’t have to lift a finger.
INTEK has several advanced pieces of equipment in its arsenal, including a high-powered washing machine capable of removing smoke damage from linens and two large ultrasonic machines that can clean and restore items using sound waves. Having access to such advanced equipment allows the INTEK team to tackle jobs the average person couldn’t handle.
Managing everyday services for homes and businesses
INTEK’s services aren’t limited to big jobs like fire and water restoration—their team is available year-round to manage common cleaning and maintenance issues you may be facing.
Lubenow warns against do-it-yourself solutions or leaving this regular upkeep undone. Whether it’s carpet cleaning or emptying your ducts, it’s best to have a professional handle the situation.
When it comes to carpet cleaning, for instance, Lubenow says many store-bought solutions leave behind large amounts of soap residue. INTEK’s carpet cleaning system uses a solution that is rinsed away with steam, leaving your carpets fresh and clean. The solution is biodegradable and safe for both children and pets. Additionally, many carpet companies offer warranties on their products, provided the carpet is steam cleaned at least once a year.
Making sure your filters and ducts remain clean is also important because they can affect air quality and the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Additionally, if you notice your clothes are taking longer to dry, you may need to check your dryer, as a clogged dryer vent can cause a fire. INTEK offers free inspections to assess whether these areas need attention.
INTEK stays busy throughout the year, as cleaning needs change from season to season. Spring and summer bring water and mold, while fall brings duct and carpet cleaning before the holidays, and frozen pipes and fires keep the team busy all winter long.
Ultimately, Lubenow says INTEK’s experience and the breadth of their staff sets them apart from others in the industry.
“A lot of our people have been with the company for years, so there’s a lot of trust and knowledge,” he said.
