"Like it never even happened" SPOTLIGHT

This mountain-top home in Windham was visited by a raccoon whom left behind a big mess in the attic. The critter got up into the attic through an open hole in the soffit and made the area it's home leaving feces and destroying all the insulation! SERVPRO of Columbia & Greene Counties was called and knew what to do. They removed all the insulation from the attic one garbage bag full at a time until the area was insulation free. The crew then sprayed the entire area to handle a little pre-existing mold discovered during the process. This was no job SERVPRO of Columbia & Greene Counties couldn't handle. Call us for your attic remediation at (518) 943-5005!

A clean, fresh smelling home sells faster. Unfortunately, not all homes are maintained in the same way. Nearly all realtors are faced, at some point, with a difficult listing to show. 

Realtors encourage clients to keep their homes in top condition for very important reasons:

  • Increased market value
  • Reduced list to sale conversion times
  • Enhanced reputation for quality listings and quick sales

SERVPRO of Columbia & Greene Counties offers a wide variety of services to help revive your listings to top show condition such as:

  • Carpet, Upholstery, Drapery, and Blind Cleaning
  • Ceiling, Wall, and Hard Floor Cleaning
  • Deodorization
  • Duct and HVAC Cleaning
  • Mold Mitigation and Remediation

Prior to listing a property, the following steps can  be taken to reduce the potential for moisture buildup or mold growth. Should a damage event occur, timely response is the key to preventing further damage.

  • Act within the first 24-48 hours
  • Correct any water leaks or standing water 
  • Properly maintain humidifiers, if used
  • Install a ventilation system
