Premier Carpet Cleaning

3/22/2019 (Permalink)

Cleaning Premier Carpet Cleaning Built by Hydra-Master the RX20 is the premier tool to use and gives our techs the edge when a standard steam cleaning is just not enough.

With carpet cleaning on the forefront of our services in Toccoa Ga. SERVPRO would like to take the time to show why our carpet cleaning services are leading the competition. In this feature we will discuss the RX20 rotary extractor and how it improves the cleaning without adding cost to the customer.

SERVPRO technicians love the RX20 because it works hard giving 650 cleaning passes per minute, never gets tired and it delivers the same great results from beginning to end. All this work allows the carpet technician to focus more time on troubled areas and less time in your home, less time in your home = less money out of your pocket.

Our customers love the RX20 because its powerful jets and extraction ports sink deep into the fibers to clean all the way through, from tip to base without getting the carpet backing or padding wet. This makes dry times significantly lesser and allows our customers day to resume much sooner.

In our opinion the RX20 delivers the best clean results and promotes the fastest drying times making it a foundational tool for any Carpet tech.

SERVPRO goes even GREENER

General SERVPRO goes even GREENER New service vehicles offer amazing Cargo capacity, advanced safety features and huge fuel savings.
Your local SERVPRO is steadily reducing its environmental impact and operating costs. With such a large service area, long drives and high fuel bills are large part of any local service business.Over the past 3 years, we have replaced our service trucks with RAM Promasters. Not only do these trucks carry impressive amounts of cargo and have added safety features, they are also more environmentally friendly.Each of the five ProMasters have tremendously improved our fuel economy, occasionally doubling the MPG of the trucks they have replaced!These vehicles are saving a combined 3,640 gallons less of fuel per year. That is a whopping 70,100 lbs of Carbon CO2 that isn't released into the atmosphere!

During their service life, over 850,000 lbs of CO2 will NOT be put into the atmosphere. That's the equivalent of planting 1,550 trees to improve our air quality. A Green win for all of us. 

SERVPRO goes GREEN!

General SERVPRO goes GREEN! SERVPRO is riding in style with the new Chevy Volt.

You may have seen our new sales vehicle at your office. It is a Chevrolet Volt. Not only is it shiny and sporty, it also great for the environment. 

It is a plug-in hybrid. Each morning it travels its first 30 miles on pure electric power. When that battery supply is exhausted, the gasoline engine kicks in and it still gets a respectable 48 miles per gallon. Basically, the car runs on gasoline up hill and then down hill on electric.

After 9 months of daily service, it is averaging 78.1 mpg. This is a reduction of fuel use of over 875 gallons per year. That’s a whopping 17,500 lbs of Carbon CO2 that isn’t released into the atmosphere.

During its service life, over 140,000 lbs of CO2 will not be put into the atmosphere. That’s a fact that can help all of us breathe easier indeed.

Neighborhood of Hope

Community Neighborhood of Hope Kudos to Pleasant Grove Baptist for taking on the burden so many families face. For more information, contact John Todd at 706-245-5429.

We would like to recognize a vision that has come to fruition by one of our local churches. “Neighborhood of Hope”, designed to help families in need of housing was built by Pleasant Grove Baptist to provide a safe space for families to live while their lives are being rebuilt. When families have been removed from their homes by fire, flood and other various situations the church has always been eager to help even if the reach was limited. Now, with the newly developed neighborhood the church can further their reach by warmly hosting families and taking the burden of shelter off their plates.

When a family or individual arrives, they are interviewed and given clothes and basic necessities. The church ensures the correct paperwork is completed and hopefully move the family in within a day. Residents then sign a week to week agreement to care for the home and, based on income, would pay a weekly reimbursement fee for electricity.

Where did the sign go?

Community Where did the sign go? SERVPRO’s Royston location is improving drivers safety with some much needed road work.

You may have noticed our “missing” road sign. The message board is a staple for our local community which gives travelers the most current information, safety tips and always includes a touch of humor. The sign is noted by several our customers as being something they look forward to reading each day. The good news is that the sign is only being relocated as a larger project is unfolding. If you have ever left or frequently passed our Royston location, you would have undoubtedly experienced the extremely limited sight range motorist have upon entering State Hwy 29. The project is being facilitated by the Dept. of Transportation and includes tree removal and grade work to bring the ditch several more feet away from the road, greatly improving visibility. Time range for this project is uncertain but we will be working hard to get the sign replaced. Until then, feel free to browse our web page or Facebook site for the most recent news.
