Water intrusion in one room can mean water damage in other rooms. What starts out as an accidental spill can turn into a larger, unseen issue before you know it. Removing surface water can help prevent more extensive damage. However, water intrusions invade walls, floors and ceilings to find the lowest points in your home. Standing water from an over-flowing bathtub or a different water incident will search for pin hole crevices and cracks in your floors and walls looking for a way to travel downwards. Surfaces such as drywall, wood and carpet pull water away from plain sight and into the interiors of your home where they can cause greater damage, unbeknownst to you. SERVPRO of Cass & St. Joseph Counties is here to help you! When water damage is discovered in your home, call us at (269) 273-8777 and we will send our trained professionals and latest equipment to locate the source of the damage, detect moisture levels, and dry all affected areas.

SERVPRO logo with vacuum on blue carpet Let SERVPRO of Cass & St. Joseph Counties clean for you! Call us today at 269-273-8777.

Even the highest-quality carpet and upholstery can show soiling over time. Protect your investment by calling us to clean and maintain your carpet and upholstery. SERVPRO of Cass & St. Joseph Counties offers Professional Cleaning that can address moderate to heavy soil in your carpets.

Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair and other soils. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. How often you’ll need to have your carpets professionally cleaned depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb is to have your carpets professionally cleaned every 12 months.

SERVPRO of Cass & St. Joseph Counties is here to get the job done right. Call us at (269) 273-8777 to schedule your Professional Carpet Cleaning.
