Professional Carpet Cleaning for Houseboats at Lake Navajo!

Our "floating" carpet cleaning machine!

Identifying a Need –

SERVPRO of Archuleta, La Plata, Montezuma, & San Juan Co.’s is always looking for ways to provide much needed services for residents in the Four Corners area.  As you may know, Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico is home to the beautiful 25-mile long Lake Navajo.  And what is a common fixture on a lake of this size?  BOATS, of course!!

It occurred to us here at SERVPRO of Archuleta, La Plata, Montezuma, & San Juan Co.’s that many of these boats would have carpets, and well…carpets DO benefit from regular cleaning.  Smaller boats can be trailered and taken out of the water to a Qualified Carpet Cleaner, but how often is a HOUSEBOAT able to have the advantage of a professional grade cleaning?

Setting Sail on New Adventures –

After contacting several houseboat owners and hearing a resounding “YES!!” when asked if they would be interested in not only the ability to have their carpets professionally cleaned, but also any upholstery, we set our sights on how we would be able to make this happen.  The owner of SERVPRO of Archuleta, La Plata, Montezuma & San Juan Co.’s procured the use of a barge from one of the marinas.  We brought down our trailer containing our Truck Mount Extraction unit used to deliver our quality carpet cleaning.  The marina helped us with the use of their fork lift and we placed our trailer onto the barge, making it a floatable carpet cleaning machine!!  We cleaned a multitude of boats over the next several days, and all of our customers were pleased with the results.  Definitely a worthwhile experience for all involved.

SERVPRO of Archuleta, La Plata, Montezuma, & San Juan Co.’s was able to not only provide a much needed service for our Four Corners residents, we had a fun time doing it!!  Check out our Facebook page for more photos.  We love to face challenges head on, and figure out a solution.  This was definitely one of a kind, and we look forward to next year when we can do it again….
