SERVPRO Cleanup & Recovery When you need cleanup and recovery of any kind, you can trust SERVPRO of Talladega, Clay & Randolph Counties to get the job done.

If you spot a green truck in your neighborhood, you probably assume that someone has experienced disaster or accident! When that green truck arrives, you can also assume that they are in good hands.

Here at SERVPRO, we are most well-known as a cleaning company, but we want people to understand that we are a full-service company. That means that we will not only clean your home or business as needed—we will also restore or even reconstruct whatever is necessary.

Here is what we can offer you:

Water damage recovery. Water damage of any kind can be a real headache to deal with. SERVPRO can help you restore what got ruined, and we can also teach you where to keep an eye out for any type of leaks.

Fire damage recovery. Fires are reported every 23 seconds in the United States. And fires can do a lot of damage, from the burning to the soot to the smell! That’s why we send in our technicians with the best, top-of-the-line equipment.

Mold removal. If you have had water damage of any kind or size, then you know mold can creep up out of nowhere. It can also threaten the structure of your home, and it spreads easily. That’s why you should leave mold removal up to the professionals.

Storm recovery. Storms of any kind can cause minor or major damage to a structure. With SERVPRO by your side, we will be with you through the entire process, from cleanup to restoring or even reconstructing.

Commercial needs. We offer business owners the same services we offer homeowners, as well as a little more, like specialized cleaning and care, so that you can present your company with pride.

General cleaning. Cleaning can be a tedious job that we all like to put off, but our SERVPRO technicians will clean carpets, upholstery and more. We know a heavy-duty clean is something every home and business deserves.

Specialty cleaning. Our cleaning isn’t limited to the basics. We will do document restoration, air duct cleaning or even biohazard cleaning. Basically, if it can get dirty or grimy, we can and will get it cleaned.

Construction. Sometimes so much damage is done to a home or business that the only option is reconstruction. You can rely on us here at SERVPRO to not only help ease that process, but we will not stop until you are happy with the outcome.

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.

Is the air quality in your home good?

Here are some things to consider from the American Lung Association about air quality in your home:

  • Is anyone smoking indoors? No one should smoke indoors.
  • Can you see or smell mold or mildew? 
  • Is the humidity regularly above 50 percent?
  • Are there leaks or standing water anywhere—kitchen, basement, attic?
  • Are all fuel-burning appliances (gas stoves, water heaters, fireplaces) fully vented to the outdoors?
  • Is there an attached garage or basement where cars, lawnmowers or motorcycles are stored?
  • Are household chemicals, paints or solvents stored indoors or in an attached garage or basement?
  • Have you recently remodeled or added new furniture, carpeting or painted?
  • Do you use odor-masking chemicals or "air-freshening" devices?
  • Has kitchen or food garbage been covered and removed?
  • Have you used pesticides recently?

If you have an ongoing air quality issue, call SERVPRO of Talladega, Clay & Randolph Counties for further consultation. We have a staff of professionals, certified in all aspects of deodorization and microbial remediation.
