Clean Your Carpets in July. Here's Why!

6/30/2020 (Permalink)

July is National Carpet Cleaning Month. We Can Save Your Carpets and Save You Money!

This is the right time of year to take a step back and consider the health of your carpets. Are visible spots and stains making a reappearance? Are summer allergies kicking in? Has it been forever since your last professional cleaning?

If yes, it may be time to give your carpets the deep clean they need (and deserve!) with a SERVPRO professional cleaning. You'll help maintain a healthy indoor environment and eliminate toxins and germs below the surface - helping to reduce those pesky summer allergies and ensure the cleanliness of the spaces we all work and live in.

To kick off National Carpet Cleaning Month, we're offering a 10% discount* on all residential and commercial carpet cleaning services scheduled in July, 2020!

In addition, we're sharing a checklist with you to ensure your carpets stay fresh, fluffy, and clean. 

Top 4 Indicators - When It's Time 2 Clean Your Carpets:

1. Your carpets show visible spots and stains:

We get it, carpets are bound to experience accidental spots and stains over time, so this one might feel like a no-brainer. However, most homeowners consider at-home remedies to be the final solution to their carpet cleaning needs; and business owners think their regular janitorial service gets a deep clean for their carpets. Yet, those stains have the potential to reach below the surface and into your carpet's pad and backing - creating mold and mildew over time. With a professional cleaning, you help reduce bacteria and debris that regular cleaning remedies simply can't reach.

2. Your home or business houses a furry friend:

Furry friends are a great addition to any environment. But as we all know, accidents happen. And these accidents can leave behind visible stains and lingering odors. Not to mention damaging effects that, if left untreated, can result in permanent discoloration or removal of the carpeting altogether. If you have pets, then carpet cleaning is essential towards removing harmful bacteria and toxins from accidental bathroom trips, along with built-up dander and shed fur.

3. You or someone else in your home or office suffers from dust-related allergies:

The allergies of summer means pollen and dust are more susceptible to pile up on your carpets, spreading dust and allergens around your home or office. Not to mention pet dander and dust mites… eww! Deep cleaning your carpets ensures they are clean and you breathe fresher air all summer long.

4. It's been longer than six months since your last cleaning:

SERVPRO recommends that you have your carpets cleaned every 6 months. This dramatically reduces your chances of coming in contact with an array of germs, toxins, and bacteria above (and below) the surface of your carpets. Just like any other area of your home, your carpets can benefit from a regular cleaning here and there. This not only helps maintain a "like new" quality, but increases the longevity of your carpet's health.

The SERVPRO cleaning process is simple, yet effective. We thoroughly remove a wide range of germs and bacteria, along with noticeable spots and stains - leaving your carpets deep cleaned and free from harsh soaps, chemicals, and detergents.

If any of these indicators apply to you, give our Franchise Professionals a call at 609-624-0202 or contact us via EMAILWe'll make make it “Like it never even happened.” 

SERVPRO of Cape May & Cumberland Counties serves Cape May, Ocean City, The Wildwoods and surrounding communities in Cape May County. We also serve Bridgeton, Millville, and Vineland and surrounding communities in Cumberland County. 

*10% discount only for self-pay commercial or residential carpet cleaning services scheduled in the month of July, 2020. This offer cannot be used for carpet cleaning relating to a loss filed through your insurance company or an emergency service. Minimum charge of $250. Does not include content manipulation.

Proactive Cleaning & Disinfecting

6/19/2020 (Permalink)

Need Proactive Cleaning and Disinfecting for Your Business in Vineland, Millville, Ocean City, Cape May, or The Wildwoods?

We have all become aware that no matter where we live, every community must practice social distancing, frequent hand washing, and proactive cleaning in our homes and workplaces.

At SERVPRO of Cape May & Cumberland Counties, our "every day" is handling complex cleaning situations, including those where viruses and other pathogens are present.

We only work with hospital-grade, EPA-approved cleaning solutions.  Our certified master cleaning technicians perform jobs every day where they may be confronted with bacteria, viruses, mold, and other pathogens. We know how to do this while keeping you and us safe.

You may wonder how our application techniques or products are different from what is available to the public.

  • Commercial cleaning techniques are based upon years of scientific research to determine best practices. Concentrations of ingredients, the application process, temperature, and dwell times are studied for each situation. SERVPRO certified technicians know the formulas.
  • Industrial-grade equipment provides a reliable distribution of cleaning agents
  • Specific education establishes service standards and guidelines from the CDC, EPA, and OSHA/safety.

Invest in peace of mind. Call SERVPRO of Cape May & Cumberland Counties for your free consultation and estimate service: 609-624-0202.

Advice from the medical and scientific community regarding how to deal with the COVID-19 is based on present knowledge, which is subject to change as the pandemic continues to develop. There can be no assurance that disinfectants alone will be adequate to fully eliminate the virus. We are not physicians or infectious disease professionals. Consult your medical professional for individual medical advice.

What is Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned (CSC)?

6/16/2020 (Permalink)

What is the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned (CSC) program?

Our CSC program is designed to provide our communities with a way to know that a structure has been cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected to minimize harmful pathogens. If a structure is sanitized and disinfected as part of the CSC program, signage will be provided to display on a window to let everyone know it was sanitized and disinfected.

We adhere to SERVPRO protocols and recognized industry standards (CDC, RIA, IICRC) with EPA-approved cleaning products to deliver a SERVPRO certified cleaning experience and result. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed what it means to be clean. Being open for business is just the beginning of our new journey forward.

Employees may be hesitant to return to work, and customers may wonder whether the businesses they patron are safe. 

We are proud to launch Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned— a cleaning and disinfecting program that SERVPRO offers to commercial locations to address the current COVID-19 pandemic.

This is a level of clean that goes way beyond janitorial or carpet cleaning. This is proactive viral pathogen cleaning.

How can we help your business? When our logo is on your door, your commitment to clean is clear. When you choose SERVPRO, your employees, customers, and community can rest assured that you selected a “higher standard of clean” — Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

Got Mold?

6/16/2020 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation is One of Our Primary Areas of Expertise at SERVPRO® of Cape May & Cumberland Counties

We have the training and experience to contain the infestation, scrub health-threatening spores out of the air, remove the contaminated materials, and help prevent future microbial growth.

Have A Moldy Situation?

Imagine you were cleaning out a storage closet, and you found mold growing on the back wall. A number of situations may have created an ideal situation for microbes to grow in this closet. Once you identified and resolved the source, you would still want to contact a professional to mitigate the mold and ensure healthy air for your home or office. Healthy are for all to breathe.

Containing the Infestation.

When our Franchise Professionals begin a mold job, our first concern is to contain the mold infestation. The mold you can see is only a small part of the danger posed to building occupants. Mold reproduces by releasing invisible spores into the air. Therefore, we begin by preventing air from the contaminated area traveling to other parts of the building.

Scrubbing Mold Out of the Air.

Each job is unique in its challenges and solutions. However, in most cases, our mold mitigation team will set up a containment barrier and create a “negative air” situation inside the infested area. A “negative air” situation is essentially a vacuum that ensures air only flows into and not out of the contained area while the air scrubbers filter the spores and other contaminants from the air.

Removing Contaminated Materials.

Organic materials like drywall, carpeting, and ceiling tiles must be removed and discarded once they become contaminated with mold. This is why we encourage our customers to contact us immediately after a water loss to dry all the materials before microbial growth begins. Blowing a fan across moldy materials hoping to dry them and save them spreads mold spores in the air and may increase the health risk to building occupants.  

Inhibiting Future Growth.

We can never promise to prevent all future mold growth. Mold spores are everywhere in the atmosphere, and they take root and thrive whenever they find the perfect mix of moisture, food (organic materials) and temperature. However, we have several SERVPRO products that discourage microbial growth. Once your moldy materials have been removed and the air has been scrubbed to reduce the concentration of spores, we can apply one of these anti-microbial agents to help protect your building’s structural elements.

When You See Mold, Call ASAP!

When you see mold, remember you cannot see the biggest threat that mold presents. Call us at 609-624-0202 for a free estimate and good advice about protecting yourself and others until the mold is removed and the air is clean again.
