Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Residential Cleaning Services at Your Service

12/20/2023 (Permalink)

Cleaning serves as an integral part of every project we undertake in restoration. As a comprehensive restoration team providing all-in-one solutions, having a skilled cadre of cleaning technicians is imperative to our service. Our team members hold accreditation in various aspects of renewal and recovery from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC), encompassing Carpet Cleaning (CCT), Odor Control (OCT), Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning (UFT), and biohazard recovery.

We extend our expertise to handle water, fire, old, and other loss incidents. One instance was a vandalism case in Skillman, NJ, where our professionals encountered extensive damage. Given the property's sale status, swift action was crucial. We collaborated with a contractor to replace broken windows, reconstruct damaged sections, and repainted as needed, ensuring a restoration that left the property looking as if the damage had never occurred.

Residential Cleaning Services We Offer

Our residential cleaning services include carpet and upholstery, air duct cleaning, odor removal, sewage and biohazard cleanup, ceilings/floors/walls, drapes and blinds, trauma and crime scene, vandalism and graffiti, as well as a plethora of commercial cleaning services.

Ready to learn about what each of these entail? Let's dive in.

Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning

Even the most superior carpet and upholstery can exhibit signs of wear and soiling with time. Protect your investment by reaching out to us for professional cleaning and maintenance services. The SERVPRO® system presents a range of cleaning solutions tailored to suit various upholstery or carpet types.

The cleaning methods we specialize in include:

  • Bonnet Cleaning: A less aggressive method for short piled carpets.
  • Hot Water Extraction: A deeper cleaning method for all carpet types.
  • Deluxe Precondition and Rinse: Helps restore soiled areas.
  • Showcase Premier Cleaning: The most thorough cleaning method in the industry.
  • Dry Cleaning: When color-fastness is an issue.

Preventative Maintenance: Carpets function as filters, capturing dust, dirt, gases, pet hair, and other debris. To prolong your carpet's lifespan, various measures recommended by all carpet manufacturers can be implemented between professional cleanings.

According to the IICRC, 79% of carpet soil comprises dry particles. Regular vacuuming stands as a fundamental aspect of effectively caring for and maintaining your carpet.

Preventative maintenance actions include:

  • Regular vacuuming
  • Spot removal
  • Piloting the carpet to prevent matting
  • Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
  • Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpets

Professional Cleaning: Our professional cleaning services effectively tackle moderate to heavy soil accumulation in your carpets. The frequency of required professional cleaning hinges on factors like soil accumulation, foot traffic, carpet type, and color. Typically, a good guideline is to schedule professional carpet cleaning every 12 months. The optimal approach is to clean carpets before they reach complete soil saturation. Delaying until they visibly appear heavily soiled might hinder complete restoration to their original state.

Dirt accumulates in layers, with surface dirt being just the tip of the iceberg. A deeper layer of dirt, nestled near the base of the pile, causes gradual damage to the carpet. Once dirt saturates the carpet, it embeds into crevices, firmly lodging itself within the fibers.

Air Ducts & HVAC Cleaning

Issues with air quality pose potential risks to the health and wellness of both your family and employees. When contaminants, excess dust, and debris accumulate within the duct system, the circulating air continuously distributes these particles throughout your living or working spaces. While some might perceive this as mere dust settling on surfaces, it can actually lead to health issues and decrease the efficiency of your HVAC system.

With our extensive experience, spanning from individual home recoveries in Hillsborough to managing a 10,000 square foot warehousing facility in Eatontown, our air duct cleaners are equipped to handle any scale of work.

Nevertheless, not every situation demands duct cleaning. We assess and provide recommendations tailored to address indoor air quality concerns effectively. This approach not only saves you money but also ensures confidence in the health of your system.

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps to reduce the potential for mold growth.
  • Odor Removal & Deodorization

With expertise in deodorization, we possess the know-how to detect and eradicate unpleasant odors originating from various sources, both internal and external to a structure. We provide comprehensive IICRC technical training in effective odor elimination techniques, emphasizing that mere masking or shortcuts prove ineffective when tackling persistent or severe odor issues.

Equipped with the right training and tools, we efficiently identify and remove offensive odors. Through pinpointing the odor's source and understanding how it interacts with surfaces, we can often eliminate it gradually and completely. Our technicians utilize a range of odor removal products capable of penetrating surfaces to thoroughly neutralize unpleasant smells.

The intricate science behind identifying and eradicating odors can be challenging, so entrust the restoration to us. Give us a call and let our team handle the process.

Sewage & Biohazard Cleanup

Water from sewer system backups should be considered very dangerous. The water is very unsanitary and may contain bacteria and viruses that could cause serious illness. Special training and equipment is necessary to safely clean this type of contamination.

There are three major types of contaminated water. We will inspect that contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response to safely restore your home or business.

The three types are 'Clean Water,' 'Gray Water,' and 'Black Water.' To learn more about these types, click here.

As for biohazard cleanup, sanitizing a residence or commercial space from trauma, sewage backups, chemical spills, hoarding, or other biohazards entails perilous and emotionally challenging tasks. Selecting a cleanup company equipped with specialized training and experience is paramount in addressing these critical situations.

We provide cleanup and recovery services for many biohazard situations, including:

  • Sewage backups
  • Crime scene residues
  • Suicide/death accidents
  • Homicide cleanups
  • Blood cleanup
  • Accident cleanup
  • Hoarding scenes
  • Animal waste/remains
  • Chemical spills
  • Tear gas cleanup
  • Meth lab cleanup
  • Ceilings & Floors & Walls, Oh My!

Regularly cleaning ceilings and walls is crucial for maintaining your home. Prior to painting, cleaning walls is essential to ensure proper adhesion of prime and paint. Whether you're gearing up for a paint job or seeking professional cleaning services, we are here to assist.

Ceilings and walls are susceptible to accumulating dirt, dust, pet dander, cooking residue, cigarette smoke, and other contaminants. These pollutants can be circulated throughout your property via the heating and air conditioning system. Consider learning more about air dict and HVAC cleaning to address this issue.

Employing SERVPRO's proven techniques, along with our extensive cleaning products and methods, we endeavor to restore your ceilings and walls without necessitating repainting or refinishing. Our goal is to impart a fresh scent throughout your entire property as we tackle this process.

Drapes & Blinds

SERVPRO specializes in the meticulous cleaning of delicate fabrics and intricate items, employing both wet and dry cleaning techniques as needed. Our thorough assessment and testing of fabrics guide us in selecting the most appropriate among our system's five cleaning methods. Utilizing cutting-edge equipment tailored for fine fabric care ensures top-notch cleaning results.

Trauma & Crime Scene Cleanup

Our team strictly adheres to OSHA and EPA guidelines, dedicated to restoring hazardous environments into safe, clean spaces for homes or businesses. Safety remains our primary priority, especially in addressing crime or accident scenes, which might harbor blood-borne pathogens, hazardous chemicals, and other risks. We handle your property and those involved with utmost empathy and consideration amid challenging circumstances.

Once law enforcement completes their work at a crime or accidents site, our cleaning and restoration efforts commence. Often, these scenes contain biohazard contaminants like blood, posing severe health hazards. We promptly respond, equipped with specialized training, protective gear, and expertise to safely and effectively clean trauma and crime scenes. Our crime scene and trauma cleaning services include:

  • Fingerprint powder and evidence-gathering chemicals
  • Tear gas and pepper spray residues
  • Fire extinguisher residue
  • Blood, bodily fluids, and tissue remnants

Vandalism & Graffiti

Instances of vandalism and graffiti can be deeply distressing, spanning from minor mischief to deliberate property destruction. Even seemingly small acts, such as breaking a window, can lead to considerable water damage and mold damage if not promptly attended to.

We are swift in eliminating vandalism and graffiti from residential and commercial areas. Beyond eradicating spray-painted graffiti on exterior walls, our expertise extends to cleaning driveways, walkways, asphalt, metals, wood, glass, plastic, and masonry. Our adept technicians provide the following services:

  • General cleaning and graffiti removal
