Top 4 Benefits of Commercial Carpet Cleaning With SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach

3/21/2019 (Permalink)

You likely schedule daily or weekly office cleaning service to keep your business tidy. However, even with regular sweeping and vacuuming, your carpets can accumulate stains. To ensure your office is presentable, SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach offers expert carpet cleaning service, including spot removal and upholstery stain removal, to get rid of stains that sweeping and vacuuming miss. They also offer dry cleaning service for areas where color-fastness is crucial. Below, they reveal some of the most valuable benefits of regularly having your carpets professionally cleaned.

4 Reasons Why You Schedule Commercial Carpet Cleaning Services

1. To Improve Air Quality

Carpeting collects a wide variety of air contaminants, including dust, pollen, mold spores, and bacteria, that can cause allergy symptoms and exacerbate asthma and other respiratory problems. If not removed, these particles could end up back into the air you and your employees breathe, resulting in a lot of downtime and loss of productivity.

2. To Remove Stubborn Stains

Some stains are extremely persistent and cannot be removed without professional attention. For stubborn, unsightly carpet blemishes, contact the experts at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach for help. They use powerful cleansers and state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to remove even set-in soils and spatter.

3. To Look Professional

Carpet stains simply don't look professional, and if you invite clients into your offices, they could be turned off by the dirty, grimy appearance. Moreover, even if your customers never enter your premises, the untreated stains could signal that sloppy work or carelessness is acceptable. To avoid sending that type of message, contact a professional carpet cleaning service.

4. To Extend Carpet Life

Deep-down dirt and grime can damage carpet fibers and cause the rug to wear out more quickly than it should. Regular carpet cleaning removes contaminants that cause damage and discoloration and extends the useful life of your office carpeting.

Commercial carpet cleaning offers some important benefits for your business. To schedule service, contact SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach. They also specialize in water extraction and mold remediation, and they offer 24/7 emergency service throughout St. Johns County.

Why you should choose SERVPRO of Greater St Augustine/St Augustine Beach over competition that has been around for 30+ years.

2/19/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Why you should choose SERVPRO of Greater St Augustine/St Augustine Beach over competition that has been around for 30+ years. Some of our fleet trucks tucked in for the night in St Augustine. Call 904-429-4457, we have the unmatched urgency, expertise, and customer service.

Being able to successfully operate a business for a sustained amount of time is always impressive. Our location had humble beginnings in 2015 - we opened with two full-time employees, two trucks and barely enough equipment to complete a proper water damage dry-out in residential home. We looked up to companies that have been in business for a while and have mastered the ability to overcome increased competition, changing market conditions and insurance landscape, changes in the industry, and other adversities a business may face in a span of 30+ years.

Fast forward to 2019, we are one the fastest growing SERVPRO locations in Florida. In 2019 we set a record for St Johns County (for the restoration industry) helping more than 500 customers/neighbors recover from various types of damages. 

This rapid growth has not gone unnoticed. Obviously, we received many accolades from SERVPRO corporate, as well as much recognition and admiration by local Property Restoration professionals.

Most are supportive, some felt threatened by our success and began a campaign to undermine our achievements and network of referrals we have created. One thing is common, these competitors often bolster how long they have been in business.

With that we wanted to take this time and alert all consumers out there that simply having been in business for a "long period of time" should not be the lone factor qualifying one for a project. If a company has been around for that long, typically it must have a reputation, so always check reviews. Always check their community involvement, competency of their staff, and all other relevant information, such as social media, websites etc. It is very easy to get complacent, older companies tend to have an older equipment inventory, low levels of urgency, sense of entitlement, and unwillingness to adapt to newer market conditions and industry trends.

It is a great achievement to be able to sustain longevity in such competitive industry (Restoration), albeit it, often companies that bolster their time in business as the core for their qualifications lack major components to truly be able to offer services that are better than competition. As a savvy consumer one should always check consumer reviews, project management’s credentials, condition of equipment and relevance, as well as the organization’s community involvement and their local “footprint”. If a company has been in business for more than 30 years and is truly the industry leader and an active member of the community – these types of companies rarely leverage time in business to swing preferences their way, as everyone knows who they are anyway! If you must mention you have been around for 30 + years, maybe you should change things up a bit and become more noticeable… Just a thought.

How to cope with mold with the help of your local SERVPRO!

2/13/2019 (Permalink)

Let’s face it, the thought of mold will keep you up at night. Some companies use the threat of mold as a scare tactic, often taking advantage of clients who are in a vulnerable position. Mold inspections can be expensive and time consuming, often requiring several days for test results to be returned, but there is no need to panic. We are here to help! The first thing to know about mold is that it can almost always be avoided. When a flood occurs in your residence or business, you need to act as fast as possible. The quicker you respond to the flood, the less likely you are to have a mold problem. CALL A PROFESSIONAL! Treating water damage is a science, and should be left to experts (like us) who are licensed, insured, and highly trained. Often times, people are hesitant to spend the money on a professional restoration company, but ultimately it will save you a lot of money. Improper treatment leads to long term damage, which may* cause mold and other expensive problems. Second, mold testing and mold treatment must be performed by separate companies. If a company finds mold during an inspection, they must hire another company to treat the mold! Failure to do so is a conflict of interest! If you fear that you may have mold from a preexisting problem, contact us here at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach. We will arrange for a licensed inspector from another company to perform a full inspection, and then we will perform services to remove the mold. After our services are performed, another inspection will be performed to ensure perfection. We ALWAYS guarantee our work! Don't let the fear of mold keep you up at night. Call SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach!
