The water, fire retardant, damaged walls, ceilings, and burned materials must be removed before restoration can begin.

SERVPRO responds rapidly to abate mould damage in Mississauga commercial buildings

Taking care of your business premises can be vital to ensuring consistent progress and minimal loss of revenue. The last thing any business needs is temporary closure, so acting quickly at the first signs of microbial growth is crucial. Common signifiers for microbial growth could be discoloration of ceiling tiles or peeling paint. It can also be walls that are cracking, warping, or bubbling in places. Generally, signs of unwanted moisture in premises are equivalent to the symptoms of mould. Our services include licensed mould remediation specialists that can evaluate and remediate your premises to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards. We can help your business with:

  • Mould infestation
  • Commercial mould inspection
  • Mould remediation

Performing commercial mould remediation in Mississauga requires special safety equipment. It may be safe for staff to remain working in your business premises, depending on the extent of mould infestation. Remediation that disturbs mould, such as demolishing drywall, can create an air particulate problem as mould spores become airborne. However, SERVPRO technicians are experts at containing parts of the premises with mould and allowing access to other areas. Mould spore containment can help prevent the spread from affected to unaffected areas. Mould barriers include:

  • Using thick polyethylene sheets, physical barriers are set up by sealing vents and entranceways. Physical barriers typically include decontamination chambers at entrance points. 
  • Equipment barriers can involve the use of negative air-pressure machines. Negative air pressure draws airborne spores through a set of filters to remove them from the affected area.
  • High-efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are industrial standard and can remove particulate matter as small as 0.3 microns- for reference, a human hair is around 70 microns.

SERVPRO understands the crucial rapid remediation of mould infestations can save inventory from contamination and capital investments like equipment and structural assemblies.

If your business is affected by mould, contact SERVPRO of North Mississauga for mould remediation at (905) 238-7376.

SERVPRO in Mississauga Is Here to Help Organize and Execute Commercial Fire Damage Restoration for Local Business

Large commercial buildings can require high-scale restoration when subjected to an accidental fire or another disaster. Gymnasiums, warehouses, and storage units can all fall victim to fire and, if the building is at the time vacated, these fires can rage for several hours, causing extensive harm. SERVPRO is a restoration service with the requisite human resources to help commercial property managers return their business entities to a preloss condition. One of the core factors affecting the length of restoration is the size of the building and its access points. Buildings with high ceilings, thousands of square feet to cover, and drop ceilings or plenums often require more complex restoration solutions. We are here to help with:

  • Warehouse fires
  • Commercial fire damage
  • Commercial restoration

Ceilings ranging from ten to twenty-five feet are common problems commercial fire damage restoration teams face here in Mississauga. Smoke travels quickly through open spaces where there is lots of oxygen and can leave behind residues or odours on any surfaces that make contact with the smoke. In some restoration projects, our team has had to build temporary scaffolding to allow access to the upper points of a large commercial premises. Drop ceilings, commonly made from acoustical tiles, create a cavity between the outer and suspended ceiling that often builds pressure in a fire, making it difficult to access the inner points. Our team can remove these ceilings to allow access and hand-clean any ducts, piping, or electrical wiring before replacing the suspended ceilings tiles with new material.

  • High-value items can often return to a preloss condition with hand-cleaning. Hand-cleaning can be applied to framed pictures, certificates, documents, or sculptures.
  • Plywood can be placed on flooring with scaffolding built onto the plyboard preventing additional damage.
  • Laminate floors in commercial buildings require immediate attention to avoid becoming water-damaged by fire fighting

We are here to help get your business back on its feet following a fire. Contact SERVPRO of North Mississauga for commercial fire damage restoration at (905) 238-7376.

SERVPRO Provides Cleanup from Fire Damage and Fire Suppressant Chemicals in Mississauga

Commercial buildings in Mississauga follow provincial guidelines for fire suppression systems which are usually water-based. Once a fire triggers the system, water is sprayed over the entire area to suppress the fire. First responders may also use water or specific chemicals to suppress a fire that does not respond well to water.

Once the fire is extinguished, the building owner is left with a mess to clean up and ponder how long it will take to recover and return to normal business operations.

SERVPRO provides water mitigation, and fire suppression chemical cleanup, fire damage cleanup in commercial Mississauga buildings. Our team can be on-site within four hours to assist in recovering your business from a disastrous fire. Every fire is unique, with the damage limited to the smoke residue and odors to severe structural damage.

Our SERVPRO team can assist with all facets of the cleanup and return to preloss condition. Our services include:

Commercial clients can significantly minimize secondary damage caused by water and moisture remaining in place for too long a time. Mold can begin forming colonies within 24 hours. Porous materials can absorb moisture, swell and deteriorate, losing structural integrity. Waiting 24 or 36 hours to call SERVPRO for assistance can significantly increase the damage and the length of time it takes to return to regular operations.

We can also help set up staging areas and temporary business operations in areas unaffected by the fire. Containment rooms and negative pressure rooms work well to separate damaged areas from those that can still contribute to your day-to-day business after a fire.

SERVPRO Can Help You With the Water Removal in Your Mississauga Business! 

Mississauga is a part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA,) and is well known throughout the country for its busy streets. It is named for the original Indigenous group who lived in the area for many centuries, the Mississauga Anishinaabe. Due to its location adjacent to Lake Ontario, the area has been rich in trade routes since colonization began in the 1600s. 

Mississauga Facts and History: 

The population of Mississauga was estimated to be around 720,000 in 2016. However, because of its position in the GTA, and how close the surrounding cities are, the metropolitan area houses almost six million. Pre-colonization, it is unknown how many people were in the area, but it was thought to be inhabited by Iroquois, Algonquin, and Mississauga. 

Mississauga was settled as an independent city in 1805. Furthermore, the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW,) one of the major highways running through the city, was constructed in 1935. Nearby, the Credit River lays, as well as Lake Ontario. 

Notable Places In and Around Mississauga: 

Mississauga is adjacent to Toronto and therefore shares many of the same interests and attractions. Some places to see include: 

  • Port Credit: A French-influenced shopping area with beautiful landscapes and eateries. 
  • Rattray Marsh Conservation Area: This patch of land, marsh, and lake is considered an amazing walking or hiking trail connecting to Jack Darling Park. 
  • CN Tower: The CN Tower was once the tallest structure in the world, only recently beat out by a tower in Dubai. 
  • Mississauga Public Library: If you are looking to learn the local history, this library has many historical newspapers kept digitally. 

Commercial Water Removal Services? 

No matter how your Mississauga store came to need water removal services, here at SERVPRO, we've got your back. The GTA, in general, is known for its endless restaurants and shopping centers. Moreover, there are so many various cultures present in the area that you can find whatever ethnic foods or goods you need.

SERVPRO of North Mississauga Ensures That Local Businesses Look “Like It Never Even Happened.”

Mississauga is a sprawling community near Toronto with a booming business district that has accelerated its growth considerably. This city is also home to the busiest airport in Canada, Toronto Pearson International Airport. The name Mississauga originates from Anishinaabe “Misi-zaagiing,” which translates roughly to “[Those at the] Great River-Mouth.” It is closely associated with Ojibwe “Misswezahging,” or “a river with many outlets.”

Before Europeans began to settle the area in the 17th century, the Mississauga region was home to several First Nations tribes that primarily spoke Algonquian and Iroquoian. The Credit River Valley was the most populated by indigenous peoples. Many of them traded with the French, including the Algonquian Mississauga tribe. By the beginning of the 18th century, however, the Mississaugas were driven out of the valley by the Iroquois.

Like many other cities in the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga is not a centralized urban metropolis. It is a diverse confederacy of towns and neighborhoods. They eventually coalesced into a city with a unique identity of its own after the formation of Toronto Township in the early 19th century, which initially included most modern-day Mississauga.

Today, this diverse gem of Ontario sports a population of over 720,000 as of 2016. These figures make it the second-largest city in Greater Toronto, third in Ontario, and sixth in Canada overall.

Notable Saugans include such names as:

  • Hockey player John Tavares
  • Actor Dameon Clarke
  • Instagram influencer Maddie Orlando
  • Novelist Mona Awad
  • Photographer Jason Pagaduan

The Mississauga Tribe: Then and Now

Much of the Anishinaabe moved from Niagara Falls to Michigan, particularly along Lake Erie and southern Michigan. The tribal histories considered them “lost.” Others, like the Mississaugas, moved along the Credit River to what is now Georgian Bay.

The Mississauga petitioned the Michigan Anishinaabe to return to a “good path.” The other tribe responded by migrating from the Detroit area to Manitoulin Island after forming the Council of Three Fires. The Anishinaabe and Mississaugas maintained a presence on the island and along the Mississagi River for centuries. The Anishinaabe were so populous that, by the mid-1600s, their language became the indigenous lingua franca, surpassing the Great Lakes Wendat’s Wyandot language.

In the late eighteenth century, near the end of the American Revolution, Britain purchased Mississauga lands in a compact known today as the Haldimand Deed. This agreement detailed the gifting of the land promised to the Haudenosaunee tribe. However, the British Crown and Canada instead made land grants to white settlers, namely British Loyalists. The Haudenosaunee would instead gift land to the Mississaugas so they could become the Mississaugas of the Credit. The Canadian government would eventually pay reparations to the tribe in a $145 million settlement.

The Mississauga people today are a subset of the Ojibwe nation, who now number over 200,000 total. Six First Nations and numerous reserves comprise the Mississaugas today and include:

  • Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation
  • Curve Lake First Nation
  • Hiawatha First Nation
  • Mississauga First Nation
  • Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation
  • Alderville First Nation

Sports and Recreation in Mississauga

Sports, particularly hockey, are a crucial part of today’s Mississauga makeup, and the city is home to a plethora of teams.

Local hockey teams and leagues include:

  • The Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League’s Mississauga Chargers
  • The Canadian Women’s Hockey League’s Mississauga Chiefs
  • The Greater Toronto Hockey League
  • Mississauga Girls Hockey League
  • Mississauga Hockey League

Hockey teams in the city play at over 13 arenas, with the Paramount Fine Foods Centre primary among them. This arena, formerly known as the Hershey Centre, is the primary venue for junior hockey league teams like the Mississauga Steelheads and the Raptors 905. The original team, the Paramount Centre, was built for the Mississauga IceDogs, has since been renamed the Niagara IceDogs after moving to St. Catharines. Other former home teams of the Paramount Fine Foods Centre include the indoor soccer team Mississauga MetroStars and the National Basketball League of Canada’s Mississauga Power.

Other sports with active Mississauga teams include box lacrosse, roller hockey, Canadian football, and cricket. Sporting clubs in the city accommodate activities like figure skating, synchronized swimming, and soccer. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore almost 500 wooded parks and nature preserves, including over 100 kilometers of hiking trails.

What Tools Does SERVPRO Use for Commercial Water Damage Detection?

When businesses are hit by commercial water damage, Mississauga entrepreneurs can count on SERVPRO to respond within the first 24 hours after the initial contact. Response times are often as short as four to five hours. After consulting with owners and insurance adjusters about damage on the property, technicians must assess the damage with industrial-grade moisture measurement tools calibrated to measure moisture content for various surfaces accurately.

Initial readings are crucial for establishing drying goals and finding water damage hidden behind walls, ceilings, and floors. Tools utilized include:

  • Moisture sensors, which are built to detect moisture carpeting and the pad underneath. This process aids technicians in determining whether your business’s subfloors are saturated as well. However, moisture sensors cannot measure the amount of damage present, only whether it is there or not.
  • Moisture meters come in penetrating and non-penetrating varieties and are calibrated for such surfaces as wood and drywall. Penetrating meters determine moisture content using insulated conductive probes, while non-penetrating meters can rely on capacitance, radio frequencies, or conductivity for this task.
  • Thermo-hygrometers are essential for comparing relative humidity and temperature in affected and unaffected spaces on your commercial property. They are also critical for ensuring that air from dehumidifiers and ventilation reaches appropriate temperatures and moisture content to keep your business dry.

Why Is Organisation Important In Water Cleanup?

7/30/2020 (Permalink)

Boots in water SERVPRO professionals are trained to handle all types of water damage. Let us help your business bounce back after a water incident.

How Staying Organised Makes Toronto Commercial Water Cleanup Faster.

Toronto business owners see more than their fair share of extreme weather, from hot summers to frigid winters with plenty of snow and ice. Bad weather is just one of many factors that can cause a leak in business premises. Whatever the cause of a leak, business owners want to get back on their feet quickly.

Water cleanup in Toronto needs to be fast, efficient, and reliable. Water damage to business premises is no small matter, and swift remediation is the best way to minimize damage. Business owners are keen to get up and running fast after an appliance leak, burst pipe, or storm. Good organization is key to a swift restoration process.

Why does organization matter in water cleanup?

It’s shocking to see signs of water in your business, whether in a flood or damp patches on the walls or ceiling. Time is of the essence when tackling water cleanup, which is why SERVPRO of North Mississauga recommends that businesses get organized as quickly as possible. 

What does water cleanup organization mean

Organization in cases of commercial water cleanup means:

Having an up to date list of contact numbers for all staff members

Having a water cleanup policy that tells the staff what to do in case of water emergencies

Making sure all staff know the chain of command and who to call

Drawing up a list of tasks to be done in the case of water damage

When do I need to get organized?

The best time to sort out your water damage policy is now. Do not wait until there is an incident, and you are already panicking. Draw up a list of useful information right now and distribute it to all staff members as soon as possible.

The sooner you plan for disaster, the better equipped you will be to handle one.

How does SERVPRO software help with organization?

SERVPRO trains our teams to be highly organized and to be responsible when it comes to logging data during a crisis. 

One of our key pieces of software is an industry-standard program named DryBook. DryBook is an IOS application that our teams use to log every aspect of your water cleanup job properly.

Using DryBook helps us stay compliant with the IICRC S500 Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration. We use the software to log all the vital information, including:

The results of our initial inspection

Photographs from our first assessment of your premises

Description of all the affected rooms and materials

SERVPRO of Mississauga Can Provide Your Store With Flood Damage Remediation Services!

Owning a business in Mississauga can quickly turn into a nightmare when flood damage strikes. Imagine your kitchen appliance store suddenly faced several inches of water on the floor in the course of a single night. Picture getting a security alert and finding a tree fell through the front doors due to the storm's high winds. What would you do in this situation, as floodwaters quickly made their way onto your property? 

The best thing to do for your store is to call local Mississauga flood damage remediation services as soon as possible. Here at SERVPRO, our goal is to get to your location quickly and provide your appliance store with our expert services. We want to help you get your doors open as soon as possible because we understand how essential foot traffic is for your business. Every day your doors remain closed is a day of revenue lost. You can trust us to help you get back on your feet quickly. After all, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. 

How Can You Get to My Store Quickly If a Storm Is Flooding Roads? 

Our SERVPRO technicians always aim to get to your location quickly. To reduce travel time, we can: 

  • Use our signature green vans, which are pre-packed with advanced equipment
  • Avoid flooded roadways by using social media and other platforms for weather advisories 
  • Travel through less congested streets

The GTA (Greater Toronto Area) is known for its abysmal traffic, especially during rush hour. Our SERVPRO techs know the city like the back of their hands and can avoid the highway in order to travel through the city quickly. 

What About The Entryway? What Can Your Techs Do About That? 

When we arrive at your store, our technicians can get to work right away. To stop more water from getting inside of your store, SERVPRO can: 

  • Clean up the broken glass and remove broken pieces from the doors
  • Tarp up the entrance as a short-term solution to keep water out
  • Board up the entrance until a contractor can come and replace the door

We're flood damage experts. No matter what problem we need to solve, our technicians can find a way to mitigate the damage inside your store. Every technician at SERVPRO receives IICRC-certification (Institution of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification.) 

How Can Your Technicians Clean Up the Water in My Store? 

Our SERVPRO technicians are trained to use many advanced technological devices, designed for flood damage extraction. Once inside, our techs can: 

  • Use wet/dry vacuums to reduce standing water
  • Install portable pumps to help reroute water out of your store and to a sewage drain
  • Set up drying equipment, such as flood drying mats and dehumidifiers

Using these devices in conjunction can help provide dry air to your store, creating an environment ideal for evaporation. Furthermore, depending on the size of your property and the water inside, our technicians can split into teams and set up several drying "stations" around your store. Doing so can allow our technicians to cover more ground and cut down the time it takes to dry out your property. 

What About My Merchandise? Will Metalic Appliances Rust? 

Our quick service can usually avoid these problems depending on how fast our technicians can get to your shop once the flooding begins. However, our technicians can help you: 

  • Take inventory of everything inside of the store, so you have numbers to make insurance claims with
  • Do basic inspections for signs of rusting
  • Help you get in contact with reputable inspectors if you want further investigation 

At SERVPRO, we always want you to feel like you are being cared for on all fronts. Our goal is to take as much work connected to the restoration off your hands as possible. We want to leave you feeling, "Like it never even happened," and we want you to feel happy about the service you received.

SERVPRO’s Focus Is to Get You Back to Business After Mississauga Flood Damage

Recent storms have placed all commercial buildings on Lake Ontario’s northwest shores in the path of severe flooding. Heavy rains and damaging winds combined with substantial lakewater surge caused tremendous quantities of water to flow indiscriminately through structures. We understand that damage to retail, food service, industrial, multi-family residential, warehouse, and office building affects not only the employees, owners, and managers, but also the community that struggles to return to normalcy.

Why Should Businesses Hire Specialists for Flood Recovery? 

Expecting your housekeeping or building engineers to handle the unique challenges of flood damage in Mississauga commercial buildings is unfair to them and could be disastrous to your structure. The skillset and equipment needed for fast and thorough flood water removal, cleaning, disinfection, and structural drying are unique. We prepare our employees to respond to all aspects of flooding through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) coursework, with additional mentoring from our most experienced managers and technicians on the job.

What Are the Steps Followed by Professionals After Flood Damage?

SERVPRO arrives with a team of individuals ready to spread out to respond to your flooding crisis quickly. Project managers scope for safety concerns and assign emergency crews to commence water extraction once we control hazards. 

  • We use pumps for water deeper than two inches, operating efficiently to evacuate vast quantities of fluids even when completely submerged. 
  • Truck-mounted extractors follow, clearing surfaces of visible standing water.
  • Water and moisture detection locate hidden caches of fluid and record baseline drying data.
  • Trapped water is released, sometimes using controlled demolition like flood cuts, and contained using truck-mounted and portable extractor or negative air pressure systems.
  • Crews clean and disinfect soiled surfaces.
  • Drying, using moisture data to monitor continuously, completes using multiple air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers.

Why rely on SERVPRO of North Mississauga for your commercial flood damage needs? Training, experience, and cutting edge industrial-grade equipment combine for successful outcomes after one call to (905) 238-7376.

Flood Damage to Your Toronto Bakery

Excessive Snowmelt Can Cause Flood Damage to Your Toronto Bakery

Every Canadian knows that snowmelt has the possibility of causing flood damage. After a particularly heavy winter, it can be unnerving for spring to come. As snow melts, rivers and lakes become filled to the brim and sometimes spillover. However, it is not only homes and businesses adjacent to water that need to worry. Snowmelt can plague anyone.

In the case of your Toronto bakery, flood damage could hit your property because of rapid snowmelt. Due to global warming, temperatures have been all over the place for Ontario springs. One weekend a blizzard can hit, and then the next every bit of snow could melt. Unfortunately, unstable weather can cause some problems for local buildings.

Imagine arriving at your bakery to open the doors and begin prep for the day to find a generous puddle of water on the floor surrounding the front entryway. The sudden snowmelt allowed water to trickle under the door and pool in your establishment, causing flood damage to the tile floors. Not only does the water create an unsafe work environment, but it may have been there since the previous afternoon. Getting professional help to your location is essential, even if it means closing the doors to your shop for the day.

Here at SERVPRO, we understand how essential foot traffic is to your business. We also understand that your establishment cannot remain closed for long, or else customers may begin to look elsewhere for their baked goods. For this reason, we work when you need us. Any time, any day, our services are available for you.

When we arrive at your bakery, our SERVPRO flood damage restoration technicians can get to work immediately. Our priority is to get the water off of your floor, and we can do so with advanced technology. Our technicians can use wet/dry vacuums and extractors to remove the standing water from your property. Furthermore, we can employ the use of dehumidifiers, flood drying mats, and heaters to ensure that excess moisture is removed from the floors.

To help ensure that mold growth cannot occur, SERVPRO can also use antifungal cleaning agents on the floor to eliminate mold spores and other bacteria. Once we're finished, we can return your store to you in its preloss condition.

If you need flood damage remediation services, get help now. Contact SERVPRO of North Mississauga by calling (905) 238-7376. Our doors are always open to you.

SERVPRO Teams Work to Get You Back to Business as Usual After a Flood Incident Occurs

Commercial Flood Damage Mississauga

In the winter, waterways can become jammed up with ice causing pressure points and, in some cases, flooding. These ice jams can affect your business with cold water intrusion into your local food store. The resulting losses of fresh produce can affect your revenues, but first of all, you need to get the building back into an excellent working condition. Our commercial clients recommend us for our pro-active attitude toward flood situations and our use of knowledgeable, local restoration professionals. 

Our services for commercial flood damage in Mississauga differ from residential restoration with larger equipment and communication a crucial requirement. We understand that small businesses depend upon providing reliable service to the community. During an inspection, SERVPRO technicians can give you a clear outline of the timeframe as well as the equipment that we intend to use to perform the restoration keeping you in the loop and allowing you to relay knowledge clearly to your customers. 

While no two commercial clients are the same, we develop our strategy by prioritizing emergency tasks. Assessing the condition of water intrusion in your store is essential to knowing which pumping equipment we should use based on lift and volume. If it is solid-waste, we may need to use industrial self-priming pumps that are powered by gas and capable of removing larger bodies of waste. SERVPRO technicians remove standing water quickly and responsibly to ensure that your business makes a full recovery immediately after flooding. 

Usually, our technicians conduct a thorough inspection of your business after the removal of standing water. We can sort through stock as well as other items to decide which may be salvageable, which need disposal and which may need specialist repairs such as electric tills or tablets. You can let our technicians know of any special requirements you may have for specific equipment at this point to speed up the evaluation. SERVPRO works closely with many trusted third-parties to take a flooded building from a loss site to a preloss condition.

If your business falls victim to ice jams this winter, contact SERVPRO of North Mississauga at (905) 238-7376.

Tips for Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Tips for Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Any commercial area such as an office or retail store will be prone to high amounts of foot traffic. If there is carpet in any of these locations, not only can they become dirty and unsightly, they can also become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. That is why routine maintenance for your carpet is the key to not only a better appearance but improved longevity. Here we will offer you 5 tips for commercial carpet cleaning that will save you time, money, and resources.

Commercial carpet cleaning and upkeep is the best way to keep your flooring looking great. It can be expensive and time-consuming to replace commercial carpeting. Therefore, we recommend you follow these tips for better health and longevity of your carpeting.

1. Invest In a Good Vacuum

A good, high-quality vacuum can be essential to proper commercial carpet cleaning. It’s not just the quality but also the type of vacuum that is important. Backpack vacuums have shown to be more time and energy-efficient in large commercial areas, especially when there is office furniture or other equipment in the way. Also, make sure the filters are clean and properly dated.

2. Vacuum Daily

Dirt and grit can build up in the carpet and wear down fibers faster than you might think. That’s why daily vacuuming is vital to maintain the longevity and appearance of your carpeting. High traffic areas should be vacuumed every night (or morning). While you can drop it down to 3 times a week for areas that receive less foot traffic, it is not recommended. Daily vacuuming removes traces of dust, pollen, dead skin, hair, dander, dust mites, and more.

3.Tips Place Scraper Mats Near Entry Points

People coming in from outside is the main source of dirt and grime in your carpet. Even worse, when there is water on the bottom of their shoes, it can soak into the carpet and make it even harder to clean. It can also facilitate a breeding ground for bacteria. This is why rubber mats, often called scraper mats, are vital to keeping your carpet clean and long-lasting. When customers or employees enter the building through any entry point, scraper mats can prevent up to 80% of dirt, dust, and moisture from making its way onto your carpet.

4. Spot Treat Immediately

Accidents and spots turn into stains when they are left to sit for too long. Have the proper tools and cleaning materials available to treat spots before they turn into stains. Remember, to blot the spot, never wipe or rub it!

5.Tips Hire a Professional Cleaning Service

Even when following all of the guidelines above, it’s recommended you call in a professional cleaning service from time to time. They can offer deep, carpet cleaning services with professional equipment and cleaners. Along with proper maintenance, deep cleanings will help improve the appearance and longevity of your commercial carpeting. Fortunately, at SERVPRO of North Mississauga, we have the right experience to get your carpets clean the first time.  if you find need professional cleaning in your place of business, call us Mississauga at 905.238.7376
