  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Professional carpet cleaning is not something everyone thinks about, but a dirty carpet can pose risks in a home or office. Carpets can hold onto things such as allergens, dust, and bacteria that can pose a risk to your health. Vacuuming only helps temporarily but does not remove all of the built up particles in the fabric of the cloth. Professional cleaning also improves airflow and makes your carpet and room look much cleaner. 

Professional cleaners like SERVPRO are skilled in cleaning carpets under regular circumstances and even the irregular. So before you consider replacing your carpet, give SERVPRO a call and see what can be done for you.
