SERVPRO 101 | SERVPRO® of Biddeford-Saco

2/4/2022 (Permalink)

When you need cleanup and recovery of any kind, you can trust SERVPRO of Biddeford-Saco to get the job done.

When you see the big green truck rolling through town, you probably have a vague understanding of what’s going on. Somebody had some kind of problem at home, and the green truck is on its way to fix it somehow. There might be a hose of some kind involved, maybe?

Most people have a general understanding of SERVPRO as a cleaning company of some kind, and that’s not untrue—but it’s a fractional grasp of what we really are—a full-service, stem-to-stern cleaning, restoration and reconstruction behemoth. And your insurance company’s favorite behemoth, at that.

Here’s a deeper look into the range of SERVPRO’s comprehensive services:

Water damage recovery. When you spring a leak or experience a flood, we can get you back in the dry.

Fire damage recovery. Fires happen every 23 seconds in the United States, and that’s actually part of a 40-year trend downward. Fires do big damage, but we’ve got big help to offer.

Mold removal. Mold can crop up quickly after a leak or other water damage, and it can even threaten the structure of your home. Furthermore, it isn’t safe for you to remove on your own, because you’d endanger yourself and likely spread it more severely. Let the pros in green handle it.

Storm recovery. Natural disasters of all types can bring large-scale damage and destruction, but we can take care of your recovery needs from the day of the storm to the day you move back in.

Commercial needs. We help businesses and commercial spaces of all kinds with all the same services we offer homeowners, plus a few more, including specialized cleaning and care to make your business shine and instill confidence in your customers.

General cleaning. Residential and commercial spaces alike need some cleaning help from time to time. Carpets, upholstery and more need some care, but you’ve got other things to tend to. We can give you the heavy duty clean you need while you live your real life.

Specialty cleaning. We provide everything from document restoration and duct cleaning to COVID-19 services and biohazard cleanup. Seriously, if it can get dirty, grimy or otherwise gross, we can make it shine again.

Construction. When the absolute worst happens and areas of your home or business can’t be restored, you can even rely on SERVPRO to rebuild what’s necessary to restore your home to its preloss condition.

Add 24-hour service and an easy insurance process to all this, and the picture becomes clear—when you need cleanup and recovery of any kind, you can trust SERVPRO to get the job done.

Everyday is Gameday Seattle 2017

7/7/2017 (Permalink)


A few members of our team headed out to Seattle, Washington for the 48th Annual SERVPRO Convention. It being my first time ever attending a convention I was ready to get down to business and sit through long classes all day...

Our first night in Seattle we had the "Opening Night Reception," and that's when I knew our industry was the very best. SERVPRO is one big family. We had delicious food, many laughs, and met a lot of new friends too. One thing that stood out to me immediately was that there was children playing and dancing at every event. Never in a million years did I think that the whole family actually came to convention. It made my heart happy...This is not just a franchise. We are a family.

The next day I had my first classroom session. The speakers ranged from corporate to small franchise owners. Each and every one of them had their own story of how they got where they are today. With some more difficult times than others. They shared their experiences and little things they do to make it an even better place to work! We took many of their ideas home to Maine with us to share with our team.

Everyday there is a general session where everyone comes together. We speak about Brand-Building and the legacy of our industry. Our theme this year was "Everyday is Gameday," the whole week was full of pep talks that gave you goosebumps and miss your glory days of being on a sports team.

My overall experience of my first but definitely not my last SERVPRO Convention was a huge success. I gained so much knowledge in the matter of a few days. I'm thrilled  to be apart of such a great family, team, and beyond thankful for everything SERVPRO has to offer.

SERVPRO of Biddeford-Saco is Licensed in Asbestos

6/16/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Biddeford-Saco Asbestos Abatement license

SERVPRO of Biddeford-Saco is the only SERVPRO in the state of Maine to be licensed in Asbestos.

What is asbestos? “Asbestos refers to a set of six naturally occurring fibrous minerals: Chrysotile, crocidolite, amosite, anthophyllite, tremolite, and actinolite. Among these, chrysotile and amosite asbestos are most common.”

For many years asbestos fibers were used in several different commercial, residential and industrial capacities. Asbestos is heat resistance and became the material of choice. For example it can be found in roof shingles, floor tiles, ceiling materials, cement compounds, textile products, and automotive parts.

Asbestos is regulated due to the fact of how hazardous this mineral is. It’s scientifically linked to many lung and respiratory conditions. Not only workers are effected but many families.

We offer:

  • Asbestos Inspections
  • Asbestos Project Designs
  • Asbestos Disposal
  • Asbestos Abatement

Did you know? Asbestos test should be done on any house built prior to 1980. However, we feel like inspections should be completed on every house.
