Mud Season = Messy Carpets- Let us help you clean them up!
Muddy boots = muddy carpets, no reason to worry SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick is on it's way to help!
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. This time of year in Maine can be tough as the snow is melting and mud is in the making, which means it is being tracked on to your carpets.
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.
Here are a couple of types of carpet cleaning we can offer you:
- 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.
- 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.
Are you READY for an Emergency?
SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick: Is Your Business Prepared for an Unexpected Fire or Water Damage?
Does your staff know where to start when they discover a fire/water/ or mold damage to your property? Did you know 50% of businesses that have a disaster do not reopen? Disasters strike every day; the faster your team responds, the less damage to your structure will occur, and fewer headaches for all.
Help your team be prepared for the unexpected with our free and easy to use mobile app! This convenient app also provides your business with a way to keep a history of incidents that have occurred onsite. You are under no obligation to use SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick in your time of need (although we hope you will call us at 207-721-8500 to let us help you through the traumatic experience), we simply want you and your staff to be knowledgeable and prepared for the worst.
The SERVPRO® Ready Plan is a tool for owners, property managers, and staff that allows for the creation of an Emergency Ready Plan (or ERP). Each plan is specific to the property on file, and will help your team know where and how to access shut off valves, circuit breakers, emergency exits and other important utilities/details of the building(s) with photos and detailed notes to help guide them there. Shaving these seconds and minutes off by simply knowing where to look can help save your property from extreme damage. The app will also provide an organized list of your choice of emergency contacts (plumbers, electricians, local police and fire departments, etc.) for an easy one-stop resource when panic hits.
A member from our team will come to your property, answer all your questions, take photos and assemble the information for you so you and your team have access to one all inclusive, user-friendly document on your phone or mobile device. We also provide a hard copy!

Got Spring Cleaning on the mind?
Spring Cleaning is not always what you think it is...
When you think SPRING CLEANING- what do you think of? Cleaning your home, opening the windows to get the fresh air in that was missing all winter? Dusting and cleaning all surfaces? Getting your carpets cleaned? All of the above?
The first day of spring was on Monday 3/20 and here in the mid coast area it just does not feel like spring with a blanket of snow still covering the ground. Here at SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick we can help when you do not feel like doing the clean-up yourself.
We service not only residential clients but also commercial. Our general cleaning projects range from a complete cleaning top to bottom of your home or business, deodorization, power washing the winter dirt off, cleaning your windows as well as carpet and upholstery cleaning and more.
We have also had unique projects like the one the pictured, a client had tons of old client documents stored in an attic space and they needed help removing the materials and then do a deep clean of the space after.
So... when you think, I do not want to tackle this cleaning project- think SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick and then ask yourself, can they do this? Give us a call and we are happy to talk through your project and what we can do to help.
Home Fire Campaign Awareness
Cara Lamb, Amanda Wellito- both Crew Chiefs and Barb Rapoza, Marketing Manager pictured with other Red Cross Volunteers.
With March being American Red Cross month, it is important to think of your safety should you have a fire.
We had five team members from SERVPRO of Bath/Brunswick volunteer to help install smoke detectors in the greater Bath, Brunswick and Topsham area this past October. A BIG thank you to Amanda Reibel, Amanda Wellito, Barb Rapoza, Cara Lamb, and Karen Coffill for taking time out of their schedules to help out that day.
Remember, it is important to check your batteries in your smoke detectors and make sure they are working. It is also equally important to plan a safe evacuation route for when an emergency occurs.
We have been partners with our local Central Midcoast Maine Chapter for the past ten years and encourage you to also get involved. Here is a link to the American Red Cross Home Fire Campaign for more details and tips to help you: http://www.redcross.org/get-help/prepare-for-emergencies/types-of-emergencies/fire/prevent-home-fire#Progress
