Lingering Odor After a Fire? We Can Help!

6/29/2020 (Permalink)

Some may think just because they have a fire, they just need fire damage repair and restoration. Think, again. When there’s a fire at your residential or commercial property, it can leave a lingering odor, and that could be one of the many reasons why fire damage may require deodorization. Thankfully, heroes at SERVPRO of South Chesterfield/Wildwood are fire damage and deodorization specialists. 

With our heroes certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration (IICRC), SERVPRO of South Chesterfield/Wildwood provide specialized services that can rid your home or business of odors left by fire or smoke damage. We do not cover up lingering odors with a fragrance; we find and remove the source of the odor. Once the source is found, SERVPRO’s own proprietary line of cleaning products is used to treat and prevent the odor from returning. Any restorable items in affected areas will also be professionally cleaned and deodorized, including furniture, draperies and upholstery, electronics, art, flooring, walls, ceilings, HVAC air ducts, and more.

When there’s fire damage, no matter how big or small, it’s always a good idea to have your property assessed to ensure there isn’t further damage and to see if deodorization is required. To help prevent further damage as a result of a fire, make sure the affected areas are properly clean and deodorized by experienced professionals. That’s where SERVPRO of South Chesterfield/Wildwood comes into play. If you don’t have it professionally done, it can cause extensive damage over the years and could possibly even affect your health.   

As various materials burn, the smoke produced travels throughout the structure, which leaves odorous residues on surfaces and in hard-to-reach places. Unless fast action is taken, these residues can cause permanent damage to contents and may result in resurfacing odors. If your contents are affected, contents restoration is another service we provide.

Our heroes at SERVPRO of South Chesterfield/Wildwood are trained to identify and eliminate offensive odors.

Now that you understand why fire damage may require deodorization, if you ever have a fire problem at your home or business, now you know that SERVPRO of South Chesterfield/Wildwood offers multiple solutions. From fire damage repair and restoration to deodorization to contents restoration, we are Here to Help you and your family. Will you contact us for your next fire job? 636.537.5400

The Gift Of A Clean Home On Mothers Day

mothers day template Mothers day is right around the corner!

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10, 2020. What’s the best Mother’s Day gift idea? The gift of a clean home. If you’re a mother, ask yourself this question: “What’s one gift I would love and appreciate?”  How about more time to do what you want; wouldn’t that be nice? If you didn’t have to spend the whole weekend cleaning your home, would that help?

The heroes at SERVPRO of South Chesterfield/Wildwood are here to make your wish come true! We can help you gain more time by allowing us to do the cleaning for you. Not only do we provide fire damage and water damage restoration services, but we also provide other general cleaning services such as:

  • Air Duct Cleaning & HVAC Cleaning
  • Carpet Cleaning
  • Upholstery Cleaning
  • Odor Removal/Cleaning
  • Ceilings, Floors, And Walls Cleaning
  • Drapes And Blinds Cleaning

How can your mom benefit from these services?

Dryer Vents

It’s critical to keep your dryer vents clean. According to FEMA, failure to clean home dryers causes 34% of household fires! 

Air Duct Cleaning & HVAC Cleaning

Air duct cleaning & HVAC cleaning are necessary for your health. A clean HVAC system and air ducts improve indoor air quality. If you have poor indoor air quality, it can have a direct impact and correlation on your health. It’s important what each member of your family breathes in. Your ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality.

Carpet Cleaning

Carpet cleaning can completely transform your home. Over time, carpets become highly soiled. This can pose a problem if you have little ones crawling on those carpets, and it can be potentially bad for your health, too. Our heroes can make those stains on your carpet "Like it never even happened."

Upholstery Cleaning

Miss that “new” look of your favorite living room set? Instead of replacing it, because that can be very expensive, upholstery cleaning can resolve your problem. Upholstery can become soiled over the years and this cleaning a much more cost-effective solution. 

Odor Removal

Do you have a smell in your home that’s lingering? You may have tried a number of solutions, but the smell just will not go away. We are specialists in odor removal. As experts in deodorization, our heroes are trained to identify and eliminate offensive odors. These odors can come from a number of sources both inside and outside of your home.

Ceilings, Floors & Walls

Your ceilings, floors, and walls can become very filthy. Ceilings and walls are exposed to dirt and dust, pet dander, cooking oils and grease, cigarette smoke, and other contaminants. Your heating and air conditioning system can distribute these contaminants throughout your home.   

Drapes & Blinds

Clean drapes & blinds can help brighten a room. Do you know a good rule-of-thumb of how often to get your drapes cleaned? Every two years. We carefully inspect and test fabrics to determine which of our system’s five cleaning methods is best suited to your fabrics. We use state-of-the-art equipment designed specifically for cleaning fine fabrics. 

 This Mother’s Day, allow your mom to just sit back, relax and enjoy the gift of a clean home. This is a sure way to show your mother the appreciation she deserves.  Just ask her! Call today to get one for your mom and while you’re at it, get one for yourself! Call (636) 537-5400 to schedule your cleaning!

Carpets and Upholstery Cleaning

Carpet cleaning heroes.

Did you know that SERVPRO of South Chesterfield Wildwood does carpet cleaning. Our crews are IICRC certified to handle carpet cleaning. 

Even the highest-quality carpet and upholstery can show soiling over time. Protect your investment by calling us to clean and maintain your carpet and upholstery. The SERVPRO System offers a number of cleaning options to match any type of upholstery or carpet.

Professional Cleaning

Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.

Commercial Air Duct Cleaning in Chesterfield, MO

12/20/2017 (Permalink)

Before and After Duct Cleaning

It’s important to keep your heating, ventilation, and air condition (HVAC) units working correctly to prevent the spread of unwanted dust and contaminants at your business. When the duckwork of your HVAC unit becomes clogged or backed up, you might start to notice foul odors coming you can’t get rid of, or find the source of in your home. When it comes to commercial cleaning, our professional technicians can inspect, repair, restore, and replace your HVAC unit so that you can breathe clean, fresh air in your home or office all day long.

Why Should You Have Your HVAC Serviced?

Depending on the age of your HVAC unit, and the quality of the installation related to the ductwork, you might not have to have your air ducts cleaned when we inspect your ductwork. Sometimes, a filter change or tune-up of the unit is all that is necessary. Regardless of the required work, regular inspections should be carried out. In addition to reducing the risk of odors and increasing air quality, having your HVAC unit serviced means that it is likely to last longer, and function appropriately for many years to come. Also, some insurance policies require regular inspection of HVAC units to reduce the risk of fire, damage, or other emergency situations related to the HVAC system itself. We can save you time, money, and help you avoid disaster when it comes to the air quality in your home or office.

Benefits of HVAC

HVAC units are very beneficial for homes and office space. Because they are 3-in-1 systems consisting of heating elements, ventilation systems, and air conditioning units, there is no need to have more than one piece of equipment on your property. While some units are separate, the majority of them are combined. Combined units mean easy cleaning and maintenance as well. HVAC units improve air quality in your home or office and provide a high return on your investment because they provide you with cleaner air to breathe. They'll keep you warm during the colder months, and cool during the heat of summer. Ventilation systems will ensure moisture leaves your home, and that humidity is controlled as well. With equipment that does so much, it's important to make sure it's functioning correctly.
