Having mold in your home can be a stressful time, so here are a few tips and tricks on how to both control mold and remediate the mold.

    • If possible, isolate the room with mold in order to try and contain the mold growth.
  • What to do before help arrives

If there is a fire in your home and your belongings have become damaged, here are some key points on how to interact with the damaged materials in your home

  • Soot

    • When soot has effected your home, do not attempt to wipe off the soot as it could smear or permanently stain the fabric.
    • A simple way to check if the soot is dry or oily is to run your finger along the soot and if the soot smears, it is oily if not it is dry soot.

If your home has been effected by fire or soot damage, call SERVPRO of Bear Creek at

Carpet delamination

8/1/2017 (Permalink)

In this blog we will cover what delamination is and how it affects carpet.

Carpet delamination is a condition where the secondary backing of the carpet is detached from the primary backing. If this were to happen to your carpets during a water loss situation, we are required to remove any carpet affected by the water as the carpet has become irreparable and once we have removed the damaged carpet we would place the appropriate drying equipment down to remove any remaining moisture in the area.

With SERVPRO being a preferred vendor of multiple insurance agencies, we have the experience and knowledge needed to get the job done quickly and efficiently. Call SERVPRO of Bear Creek at (281) 463-9800 if your carpet has been affected by water damage.

SERVPRO carpet cleaning

6/27/2017 (Permalink)

If you have carpets that are affected by stains or dirt, SERVPRO has multiple cleaning methods that depends on how soiled the carpets are.

The first and lightest cleaning method is Bonnet cleaning. The advantage of having your carpet cleaned like this is that it is the least aggressive method and drying time is the fastest of all the methods.

The second and most common type of carpet cleaning is hot water extraction. With either a truck mount or portable extractor, the unit applies a cleaning solution with hot water while vacuuming the carpet. The advantage of having this method is that it is a deeper cleaning method for all carpets and helps promote longer carpet life.

The third is the precondition and rinse. The process is spraying soil emulsifier on the carpet and using an extraction unit to remove it after fifteen minutes. The advantages of having this type is that it helps restore carpet piles and removes deeply soiled areas. 

And the final cleaning method is premier cleaning. This is a two step process that starts with us shampooing the carpet thoroughly and with us rinsing and extracting the entire carpet for a deep clean. The advantages of having this clean is that it is the most effective on restoring carpet after a fire.

If you have carpets that have been damaged, call SERVPRO of Bear Creek at (281) 463-9800 for a professional clean.
