  Let SERVPRO of North East Chester County restore your business carpets to their best appearance...and smell!

In our Chester County businesses, we often use terms like "commercial-grade carpet" or other terms far different from the plush, lovely ones attributed to the carpets in our homes, when describing the flooring we, and our Customers, walk on everyday.  But that doesn't mean that our commercial flooring doesn't deserve the same kind of TLC and attention!  The cleanliness and appearance of all aspects of your business speak volumes about the pride that you take in every detail, and should reflect the same level of care that you pay to Customer interaction or other aspects of your day-to-day.  While it is true that the type of carpet used in Pottstown and other surrounding area businesses is likely not the same quality as that in your home, it does not mean that skillful maintenance and cleaning cannot go a long way towards extending the life of it and keeping it looking its best.  Dirty carpets in your business can also lock in bad odors and contaminants that our professional equipment and techniques eradicate while replacing them with a clean look and smell.  SERVPRO of North East Chester County is your Chester County go-to for commercial carpet cleaning!

How to control the moisture in your home to avoid Mold.

Humidity mold growth, Home in Phoenixville PA

Controlling the moisture in your home is most important to avoid mold growth. Installing a good quality storm window not only will keep out excess moisture but also help you control your heating cost. Using a dehumidifier is also another easy way to reduce your home’s relative humidity level, but the important part is to make sure you are purchasing the appropriate size dehumidifier for the space it is being used in.  When the temperature is cold outside the humidity level within your home should remain low. Proper ventilation is essential to avoid mold growth as well. SERVPRO of North East Chester County understands that things happen within a home that may become out of the homeowners’ control and the moisture in your home could have caused mold growth that may not even be able to be seen. Our technicians are trained in Mold Remediation and will come to your home to clean and sanitize any surface that was affected by mold growth as well as using our air quality machinery to clean and purify the air to restore your healthy home.
