Picture it, May 2018 Pottstown PA.  Your house is under contract for sale and you are less than two weeks away from settlement when you have a massive water loss.  The area has been inundated with rain for days on end and you've never had a flooded basement before, but here you are. You now need to get the basement mitigated, dried out, and reconstructed prior to settlement.  What do you do?  You call SERVPRO of Pottstown/Souderton 610-327-9644. We were not only able to complete the mitigation portion but we were able to get subcontractors in there to complete the recon portion of the job in under 1 week. When you have professionals working together to help our customers, anything is possible. We got the job done and they got their house sold!

Did you know that SERVPRO not only does fire and water restoration but also all types of cleaning.  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 completely plant based, organic cleaners and we also utilize ozone machines in order to get the deepest clean possible. Ozone will get into every nook and cranny and will neutralize any odor. One of the things you must be aware of is that you can not be present in the home or business when using ozone.  The machine should run for a minimum of 24 hours and our trained technicians will go into the home and open up all windows and doors to "air it out" for safe re-entry. Please call your local SERVPRO franchise to schedule an appointment for your whole house deep cleaning today. 610-327-9644

Hoarding and the clean up.

Due to popular TV shows in recent years, the phenomenon known as hoarding has been brought to the attention of the general public. According to an article published in Psychology Today, hoarding can relieve and add anxiety and stress to individuals who suffer with this disorder. It is estimated that approximately 1 in every 50 people suffer from the disorder. So what do you do when you run across a situation like this? You call in your local SERVPRO franchise who are trained and equipped to handle the clean out of a home or apartment that has been crammed with stuff. Most times we wear personal protective equipment when going into a home such as this as you never know what biological issues you may run across.  Call us 24/7 and we'll be there to help. 610-327-9644

No matter where you live in the United States, you are always surrounded by nature. And by nature, we mean animals. We believe most people feel uneasy when they come face to face with a skunk. Images of tomato juice baths and showers jump in our heads. Not to mention the smell.  It's probably something you don't think about until it happens to you. So what do you do when your dog comes back in at night time and has been sprayed? They're going to roll on the floor and do the best they can to get the stinging smell off of themselves. Now your house wreaks of skunk. At SERVPRO of Pottstown/Souderton, we've seen this and have thoroughly cleaned homes after a skunk spray. Call our office at 610-327-9644 if you ever find yourself in need of our services...but we certainly hope you won't.

Saturation

We here at SERVPRO of Pottstown/Souderton had one heck of a year with weather. We received almost 70 inches of rain over the course of 2018. We had customers call us for the first time in the 50 years that they have owned their homes.  Some areas completely flooded out roadways while others were affected by downed tree branches and debris. Power outages caused sump pumps to fail and some of the battery back up systems didn't work either. SERVPRO corporate even set up a "Storm" team to help with jobs in our area. All in all, everyone came together and we were able to service our customers to the best of our abilities. We hope that if you used our services, they met and exceeded your expectations.
