Cleaning Carpet Cleaning Services Truck Mount used for extraction of water and carpet cleaning.

SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick is on the road every week day taking care of carpet and upholstery cleaning jobs in both homes and business spaces. Our truck mounts are fully equipped with the newest technology and chemicals to provide you with the best results and our highly trained crew will be able to freshen your carpeted stairs, area rugs and/or wall to wall carpeting efficiently and professionally.  

We offer two types of Carpet Cleaning

  1. Steam cleaning: recommended for light to moderate soiling. The crew will first vacuum the carpet, and then use their Carpet Pre-spray shampoo to loosen and clean the carpet fibers. Then, using hot water extraction, the crew will rinse the fibers of the shampoo and soils.
  2. Showcase cleaning: recommended for heavily soiled carpets and high traffic areas. This is our most aggressive form of carpet cleaning. After vacuuming, the crew will use a roto that applies Showcase Cleaner and Rinse and Carpet and Upholstery shampoo at the same time as using a bristled pad to further agitate the carpet fibers. Once the roto has scrubbed the carpet, the crew will use hot water extraction to remove the shampoo and soils from the fibers.

We are equipped and ready to help you lighten your carpet stains, and can even provide you with a Spot Cleaning Kit for minor spills to take care of on your own. Our Deodorizer has proven to be a popular option to keep musty or pet odors at bay, and a protective layer of Scotchgard can be applied to help your carpets stay clean, for longer.

We are also equipped for upholstery cleaning services. We are happy to help freshen any of your furniture and cushions including: recliners, sectional couches, sofas, living chairs and ottomans, dining room chairs, mattresses, etc.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the office at 207-721-8500 to schedule a free estimate!

SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick: Roof leaks and Structural Water Damage Causes and Effects

4/24/2018 (Permalink)

There are numerous household issues that residential property owners will have to face at some point. A leaking roof can be one of the most challenging and damaging to a home. Prevent your home from being subjected to unwanted structural issues by reading and following the tips below.
A roof failure leading to water damage within the structure can have several causes. Some contributing factors could be:

  • Weathered shingles may need replacing.
  • Dried/weathered caulking or cement tar around chimneys and vents can allow water to drip into the attic crawlspace or run down vent pipes into the walls.
  • Metal flashings may deteriorate by eaves or windows.
  • In the fall leaves may clog gutters and downspouts enabling rain to wick into the attic. SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick suggests checking these problematic areas periodically as a preventative measure.
  • Winter may cause snow accumulation on a roof, therefore forming ice dams.

Every water damage and home is different. Our crews are trained to look for specific conditions to best treat your situation.

  • Ceiling panels and drywall can become soaked. If they become water logged they may collapse. Small leaks will damage the surface of the drywall requiring a skim coat and new paint. If too much water wicks into the cardboard backing and gypsum, then discarding and replacing are in order. Porous materials, like drywall, can be a habitable surface for mold if not thoroughly dried.
  • Other areas of the property (insulation, wooden beams, concrete, etc.) that are wet can produce microbial growth/mold. In addition to causing structural problems to your home, fungi can result in health effects.
  • Any items made of wood can begin to swell, degrade, and/or rot.
  • Carpeting and upholstery can become stained due to water exposure. The carpeting can discolor and begin to smell. Wet padding and carpeting can also soak through, subsequently causing damages to the subflooring and structure beneath. Upholstery and furniture can start to smell and discolor as well.
  • Electronic equipment and appliances can be damaged or ruined by water exposure.

If you suspect you have a water damage of any level, call SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick immediately at 207-721-8500, or contact us here.

Our IICRC-certified trained technicians are available 24/7, 365 days a year. The professionals of SERVPRO Bath/Brunswick have extensive experience mitigating water/mold/smoke and fire damage. We are here for you, ready to make it "Like it never even happened." !

SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick is here to help with your Smoke and Soot Cleanup

Fire Damage SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick is here to help with your Smoke and Soot Cleanup Smoke and Soot Damage Can Cause a Pervasive Odor

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
