SERVPRO of Northwest Genesee County - Our Duct Cleaning Process

Why SERVPRO SERVPRO of Northwest Genesee County - Our Duct Cleaning Process This side by side photo really shows the difference after SERVPRO has been called in for cleaning services
  • Vent covers and returns are removed and thoroughly cleaned to remove any build-up that has accumulated.

  • A highly-trained technician will attach a high-powered vacuum system to your air duct system. This will create a vacuum in your ducting and returns, and pulls the collected debris to our filtration system. Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97% of particles in the airstream.

  • Going to each vent, we use one of our tools to agitate and remove debris from each branch of the duct work. We select the tool we use based on your type of ducting. These can include compressed air or a whip, that uses “tentacles” to agitate years of debris.

  • While your system is still under vacuum pressure, we mist in an EPA registered antimicrobial agent into the duct work. This is the same agent we use during water damage or mold remediation losses. By using this, we help eliminate mold and bacteria.

  • Finally, duct sealer is applied to create a mold and mildew resistant barrier between living and non-living spaces.

If you have replacement filters on site, we will be more than happy to install them at no additional cost. Call 810-732-3298 for more information.

Why SERVPRO Why Sawyer Jewelers Chose SERVPRO of Northwest Genesee County A lot of progress in just a few short weeks

Sawyer Jewelers located in the downtown Fenton area, had a water main break on the third floor of their building on the night of Thursday January 31st. The Fenton Fire Department was first on the scene after receiving a call from the stores security company. Right away they notified the owner of the store, Chip Beltinck who then contacted SERVPRO of Northwest Genesee County. 

When asked about his experience with SERVPRO, owner Chip Beltinck's response was.........

"SERVPRO showed up on the night of our disaster within minutes of the flood. Everyone was more than accommodating and showed up with more than ample equipment to get everything straightened out. Josh (the owner of SERVPRO of Northwest Genesee County) literally followed up every few hours to make sure I was happy with how everything was going. Josh was superb in communication, he answered every call and every question. He has gone out of his way to make extra trips on Sundays and well after business hours. I would use SERVPRO of Northwest Genesee County again as long as I could have the same reliable people to work with. Josh and his crew are what make the franchise special. I appreciate the professionalism and the care I was given."

Sawyer Jewelers is happy to announce they will be re-opening their doors this coming Monday, March 4th with a beautiful new look.

What is Causing that Smell in your Home?

Did you know that it doesn't take a disaster to call SERVPRO? We specialize in all areas of cleaning your home, even odor removal.

Musty and Moldy?

if you smell a moldy odor, chances are you probably have mold. You should look for water leaks and damp items to find the source. It may be as simple as needing better ventilation, especially in your basement or bathroom. If the problem is bigger than you can handle, we have you covered with highly trained mold remediation technicians.

Rotten Eggs?

Gas leaks or problems with your plumbing are usually the culprit. You should check to see if the smell is coming form your drains when you turn on the water. If so it may be as simple as needing a new P-trap on your floor drain or it could be much more complicated. SERVPRO can send out a technician who can find the source of the problem and correct it.

A gas leak is much more dangerous and you should call 911 right away.

Animals?

If you have pets, chances are they will leave behind a smell once in a while. Especially if we forget to clean out the liter box. If you do not have pets and you still smell a sickly animal smell, chances are you have a dead animal or insect nest in your plumbing or duct system. Either way SERVPRO of Northwest Genesee County can help by identifying the problem and eliminating it.

If you have a smell in your home or business that you just cant shake, give SERVPRO of Northwest Genesee County a call today!
