SERVPRO; Not Just a Disaster

10/6/2020 (Permalink)

When most people think about SERVPRO, they think about the television advertisements they see with the big green trucks and they think about water mitigation, floods, fire clean up, and mold remediation.  But did you know that we also perform normal, non emergency cleaning and maintenance services too?

One of the most common services we offer on a non disaster basis is carpet cleaning.  Believe it or not, the most important step in the carpet cleaning process is actually vacuuming.  Vacuuming removes up to 80% of soil, which is why this is standard procedure and our first step in the carpet cleaning process at SERVPRO of Carleton/Maybee.

When you contract SERVPRO of Carleton/Maybee to freshen up and clean your carpet, whether it be at your business or your home, know that you are receiving the absolute best in carpet cleaning service from our certified cleaning technicians!

Our carpet cleaning includes an initial vacuuming and a hot water extraction and steam clean using 220 degree (Fahrenheit) water and 300 psi.  Deodorization is also standard, leaving your carpet smelling so fresh and so clean.  Typically we have found that most stains are removed simply by using the steam cleaning process, but for stubborn stains, we have special SERVPRO cleaning products that will normally remove even the toughest of stains.    

With the holidays right around the corner, now is  the perfect time to call SERVPRO of Carleton/Maybee  at (734) 299-7006 for all of your cleaning needs before your next family gathering.

SERVPRO Offers a Professional Approach to Crime Scene and Biohazard Cleanup

7/17/2020 (Permalink)

The aftermath of a crime needs cleanup to help bring a home or business back to normal. When something as difficult as a crime occurs that causes a biohazard situation, only specially trained disaster restoration company technicians are certified to complete this necessary cleanup job. SERVPRO offers this critical service in our community.

What to do after a crime occurs with biohazard repercussions


It is overwhelming for a homeowner when traumatic event occurred in your home. As the authorities depart from the crime scene there may be a biohazard situation that still needs to be addressed. It’s important to arrange for a biohazardous cleanup of your home. SERVPRO’s trauma and crime scene cleanup division can assist with this task, following all federal, state, and local rules to keep both residents and work crew members safe until the job is complete. If an injury or death occurred, there might be blood and other bodily fluids and tissues, potentially containing bloodborne pathogens. The procedure used to clean and disinfect surfaces contaminated is prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). SERVPRO ensures that all technicians responding to crime scene cleanup have the appropriate training and certifications. SERVPRO of Carleton/Maybee is well-versed in these procedures to ensure a thorough cleaning.
 

How biohazard cleaning is done


The decontamination of a home or business due to trauma, sewage backups, chemical spills, hoarding or other biohazards can be both dangerous and emotional. Specialized training and experience are key when choosing a cleanup company to resolve these circumstances.

We provide cleanup and recovery services for many biohazard situations. These include the following:

  • Crime scene residues
  • Suicide/death accidents
  • Homicide cleanups
  • Blood cleanup
  • Accident cleanup
  • Chemical spills
  • Tear gas cleanup
  • Meth lab cleanup

The SERVPRO crime scene teams manage this cleanup as well, taking care to leave your home as close to pre-crime as possible. Throughout any crime scene cleanup our employees demonstrate respect and empathy to those returning to the home. Compassionate and committed to doing their very best, crime scene technicians take pride in the services they offer you.
 
Should you experience a crime or other trauma in your home and need biohazard cleanup, contact SERVPRO of Carleton/Maybee at 734-299-7006.

Why SERVPRO?

Unlike a lot of nationally known companies, SERVPRO is a franchise system, which means that although roughly about 1700 of us all across the country share a name, each is individually owned and operated, truly making us a local business.

Here at SERVPRO of Carleton/Maybee, we are not just a local sign on the door; we do our very best to make a difference and help out in the community.  From being an active member in the Southern Wayne County Regional Chamber of Commerce and local Rotary Club, sponsoring local school events, to volunteering in our local business group to put on the annual Easter Egg hunt, Spooktacular Halloween event, and multiple trunk or treats throughout several cities, we love hanging out with other members of the community!

One of the most recent things we have been really excited about starting is our fire care package bags.  By partnering with several of our local fire departments, we have put together a small bag of amenities to be handed out to fire victims in ours and surrounding cities.  These care packages are made with both adults and children in mind, and include essentials such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, first aid kit, teddy bear, coloring activity book and crayons, just to name a few.

When you call SERVPRO of Carleton/Maybee, even  for the simplest of carpet cleanings, know that you are supporting a local business that loves giving back and trying to make a positive difference.

If you or your business is interested in donating items for our fire care packages, please call the office at (734) 299-7006.
