Hoarding Problems Need Special Attention

9/15/2020 (Permalink)

Room with massive amount of clutter and garbage This room belonged to a hoarder. SERVPRO of South & West Spokane cleaned and sanitized the residence to help with recovery.

If you're faced with the problem of cleaning up after a hoarder, then you know, it's not just a matter of straightening up a room's contents and clearing away clutter.

Hoarding is a serious mental problem and can be very difficult to deal with. Hoarders don't just accumulate "stuff" they often pile rooms high with garbage, pet feces, and other items that attract rodents and their associated contaminants and diseases. Cleaning up after a hoarder is a job for a professionally trained team. 

Whether you're a property manager, owner, or family member of a hoarder, you can feel confident calling SERVPRO of South & West Spokane County for help. Our teams are IICRC certified and highly trained in both cleaning and disinfecting--as well as dealing with the often sensitive issues that come with hoarding.

SERVPRO of South & West Spokane County is available 24/7. Just call us at 509-534-0566 and we can have a professional out to your property in no time. 

Odor Removal and Deodorization

9/9/2019 (Permalink)

We, SERVPRO, are experts in deodorization. We are trained to identify and eliminate offensive odors. These odors can come from a number of different sources, both inside and outside a home or structure. Masking and other shortcuts don’t work when your odor problem is serious or persistent.

We have the training and equipment to identify and eliminate the offensive odors. When we identify the cause of the odor and determine the conditions where it contacts surfaces, the odor can then be removed over time without a trace. Our technicians have access to several odor removal products capable of penetrating surfaces to neutralize an unpleasant odor thoroughly.

The science to identifying and eliminating odors can be tricky, give us a call, and leave the restoration to us.

Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

No matter the quality of any carpet or upholstery, after some time it can show some soiling. Protect your investment by calling us to clean and maintain your carpet and upholstery. The SERVPRO team offers several cleaning options to match any type of upholstery or carpet.

We offer a range of specialized cleaning methods

  • Hot Water Extraction: A deeper cleaning method for all carpet types
  • Deluxe Precondition and Rinse: Helps restore deeply soiled areas
  • Showcase Premier Cleaning: the most thorough cleaning method in the industry

Preventative Maintenance

Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.

IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.

Preventative maintenance actions include: 

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