At SERVPRO of East Fort Worth we offer a large variety of cleaning services. We can handle the simple cleaning that comes from general day-to-day wear and tear as well as major cleanups after sewage spills, bio hazard contamination and crime scene messes. This article showcases the range of cleaning services we provide.

Standard Cleaning Services

Life is busy, and you don’t have time to worry about the common wear and tear that gradually soils your property. When grime, odor, and moisture challenges go beyond the scope of your regular janitorial staff, you should call SERVPRO of East Fort Worth for prompt service. Whether it’s removing an odor problem or deep cleaning flooring or carpets, you can rely on us to make your work space look its very best.

Air Ducts and HVAC Cleaning

Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating dust, pollen, odors, dirt and debris or other contaminants. Keeping your HVAC system clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can in turn save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe.

Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

Even the highest-quality carpet and upholstery can show soiling over time. Protect your investment by cleaning and maintaining your carpet and upholstery. SERVPRO of East Fort Worth offers a range of specialized cleaning methods and products to treat a variety of carpet and upholstery types.

Ceilings, Walls, and Hard Floor Cleaning

Ceiling, wall and floor cleaning should be part of the cleaning maintenance of your home or business. These surfaces are exposed to dirt and dust, pet dander, cooking oils and grease, cigarette smoke, and other contaminants. We have specialized training in time-tested and industry-approved cleaning methods. Our proprietary cleaning system allows our Professionals to properly clean and restore your ceilings, walls and floors.

Odor Removal and Deodorization

As experts in deodorization, SERVPRO of East Fort Worth is trained to identify and eliminate offensive odors. These odors can come from a number of sources, both inside and outside a structure. Masking and other short cuts don't work when your odor problem is serious or persistent. We have the training and equipment to identify and eliminate these offensive odors.

Contents Cleaning

SERVPRO of East Fort Worth specializes in restoring contents damaged by fire, water, or mold. We pretest your contents to determine what items can be restored back to their preloss condition. We utilize several methods of cleaning your contents, depending on the extent of the damage. We also specialize in restoring your damaged electronics. We have the training and equipment to restore many of your electronic devices.

Other Cleaning Services

When cleaning goes beyond the normal everyday cleaning needs, give SERVPRO of East Fort Worth a call. We offer a wide array of services to help you get back to business after your property experiences a crime, death or other disaster.

Biohazard Removal and Cleaning

Exposure to biological and chemical contaminants can pose serious health consequences. A failure to properly remove such substances can contribute to unhealthy and dangerous environments. SERVPRO of East Fort Worth is trained to safely remove bio hazards and dispose of them properly in accordance with OSHA and health regulations. Equipped with the necessary safety apparatus and cleaning products, we can help transform these unhealthy environments back into clean, safe homes and offices.

Sewage Cleaning

Sewage backups and dark water intrusions are more than nasty, smelly deposits – these damages also introduce harmful microorganisms into a structure. We remove the sewage, contaminants, and moisture, and help ensure the structure is properly cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized, making it “Like it never even happened.”

Trauma and Crime Scene Cleanup

After the police have finished processing a crime or accident scene, the cleaning and restoration process can begin. Many times, crime and accident scenes have blood and other bio hazard contaminants that pose a serious health risk. SERVPRO of East Fort Worth will respond immediately and has the specialized training, protective equipment, and experience to safely clean trauma and crime scenes.

Vandalism Cleanup

Vandalism and graffiti can be very upsetting. It can range from relatively minor pranks to malicious destruction of property. Often simple acts of vandalism, like breaking a window, can cause significant water and mold damage if not addressed in a timely manner. SERVPRO of East Fort Worth will act quickly to remove vandalism and graffiti from your home or commercial spaces. In addition to removing spray-painted graffiti from exterior walls, we can also clean driveways, walkways, asphalt, metals, wood, glass, plastic, and masonry.

Green means clean here at SERVPRO of East Fort Worth

4/16/2018 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Green means clean here at SERVPRO of East Fort Worth "Like it never even happened."

As a SERVPRO® Franchise, we have access to SERVPRO Industries, Inc. resources and technology. Part of this includes the large range of cleaning products SERVPRO has developed. Over the years SERVPRO Industries has strived to develop green chemicals that are safe for your home and family as well as the environment. We have been members of the EPA’s Design for Environment (EPA/DFE) initiative for a longtime. This allows us access to resources that help in formulating environmentally friendly cleaning products, known as “Green” chemistry. Our most notable green cleaning products are highlighted below. 
 
Carpet & Upholstery Green Clean #251: This product is designed for cleaning both carpet and upholstery. It is truly a “one product does all” in that it can be used as a spotter, pre-spray and in-line cleaner for use with a variety of equipment. 
 
All Surface Green Clean #250: This is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional surface cleaners. The product is designed as a one product cleans all for surfaces that can be wiped or mopped. It can safely be used on walls, ceilings, countertops, floors, etc. The exclusive formulation contains both ionic and non-ionic surfactants that are naturally derived and provide excellent multi-functional cleaning.
 
Window Green Clean #249: This cleaner is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional glass cleaners. The product is formulated with soft water to eliminate spotting and streaking.
 
All three products listed are pH neutral and contain no dyes or fragrances. All components are safe, non-toxic, phosphate free, Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) compliant and biodegradable. Your home is our highest priority, which is why we strive to use green products, like these, when possible.
 
Despite our goal to use green products, many of our products cannot be classified as such. Our goal is to still use the safest products we can. Two areas the EPA/DFE does not address that are common in our restoration tasks are disinfectants and deodorizers. 
 
Disinfectants are “kill” agents and are not considered green per the EPA/DFE. The EPA does classify disinfectants by the overall toxicity. The lowest toxicity disinfectants get a rating of category 3. We use a product called Sporicidin® as a low toxicity disinfectant and it carries the EPA’s lowest toxicity rating of category 3. 
 
Deodorizers can be a problem because the fragrances used in these products can cause reactions with certain individuals. The EPA/DFE does not currently have green fragrances listed. We use air scrubbers with activated charcoal to serve as a green method of deodorization. This method scrubs the odor particles from the air and traps them in the activated charcoal filter.
 
If you have any cleaning needs for your home or business, call SERVPRO of East Ft. Worth. We don't just specialize in fire and water restoration and cleanup; we also specialize in the cleaning and deodorization of carpets, upholstery, draperies, hard floors, walls, ceilings, air ducts, and more. Give us a call at 817-293-5553 and we'll make it "Like it never even happened."
