Wow that smells
Did you know that SERVPRO not only does fire and water restoration, but all types of cleaning also? We do water, fire, soot, mold, bio-hazard, carpet, upholstery, and all flooring. We use many chemicals and techniques in order to get the truest clean and the best odor removal. We have the best completely plant based, organic cleaners and we also utilize ozone to get the property clean and smelling great. I had an apartment building in Collegeville, the woman called because she could not get rid of a foul odor in a apartment. We went down and ozoned the property and 24 hours later she had a fresh-smelling apartment. It is just one of the things we do at SERVPRO and we do it the SERVPRO way.
Because we care.
A private school in the area had mold in an area that is commonly used for as a prayer room. As soon as the team got the call we went to work in contacting the insurance as well as speaking to the adjuster assigned to the case. Once that was taken care of we took on the role of inventorying everything in the rooms. This can be a very tedious process, then we sealed off the rooms and created negative air. After treatment to the walls and everything with mold, clearing plastic and general cleaning the maintenance director said it looks as if nothing ever happened. That is why SERVPRO--because we go the extra mile to make it "Like it never even happened."
When was the last time you looked at your homeowners insurance policy? Do you know what you are covered for? More importantly, do you know what will not be a covered loss? Most people don't. Ground water is never covered by any insurance carrier. If it doesn't physically happen inside the walls of the home, chances are it is not covered. If your sump pump fails for whatever reason and you don't have sewer and drain back up, it won't be a covered loss. All these things you wish someone would tell you ahead of time. Well, we just did. SERVPRO cares and we want to make sure your home and life get back to running smoothly as soon as possible. if you have any questions, please call us! 610-327-9644
