Covid Cleaning for Local Offices

When several of our local offices called on us to help them with cleaning their space after an outbreak of Covid we were quick to offer our services. 

Cleaning large commercial spaces requires the use of PPE, specialized SERVPRO cleaning products, and equipment. 

Our team went in with their PPE on and sanitized all surfaces and community areas using SERVPROXIDE™ which is registered with the EPA, as a stabilized chlorine dioxide-based disinfectant and sanitizer. Chlorine dioxide can be used on food-contact surfaces at diluted concentrations. In some cases, the compound has demonstrated a rapid kill of bacteria much less than the 30-minute period typically used in disinfection studies. It is designed to kill harmful bacteria, viruses and mold on hard surfaces and can also effectively sanitize soft surfaces. The EPA has given it one of their lowest toxicity ratings,  making it safe for everyday use.

Once we have cleaned and sanitized all surfaces we will then run our Hydroxyl Generator to sanitize and purify the air. The Hydroxyl Generator is proven to be 100% safe for use in occupied areas; therefore there is no need to remove people, plants or animals during operation. 

In these uncertain times we want you to know that you can always count on SERVPRO, we’re Here to Help 24/7.®

Fall is the time for outdoor fire pits and family time making smores. Fire Pit safety starts with selecting the right site. Make sure the ground is level. Keep fires located at least 10-20 feet away from plants and your home.

Never operate your fire pit beneath a building overhang or a partially enclosed space. Use a lot of caution with overhanging trees which can easily ignite. 

For wood burning fire pits cut logs so their length is less than three quarters the diameter of the pit. Never use lighter fluid or gasoline to start a fire pit. Position chairs so that people can move about their seats without tumbling into the fire. Keep an eye out on children whenever a fire pit is being used.

Whenever you experience water damage in your home due to a storm or a busted pipe please DO NOT panic. There are things that can help you deal with the stressful situation.

Please DO NOT allow the water to sit. If water is left alone the damage will cause the floors to warp. Mold growth may also develop. Placing tarps on windows and blocking off other areas can be a way to keep water from spreading.

We recommend calling your insurance agent right away and not waiting too long to report the flooding. That way they can get the process started as quickly as possible.

Finally it is a good idea to not attempt to make repairs without using a water damage remediation service. These professionals can remediate your home to prevent future damage and help save your belongings.
