What is an ERP?!

6/24/2022 (Permalink)

When disaster strikes you need to be prepared and ready. We offer a specific plan called an ERP. An ERP stands for Emergency Ready Plan, and is critical for working on immediate mitigation and recovery services.

SERVPRO can work with you on creating a plan tailored to your business and employees. Ask yourself this, is your business prepared for when a disaster strikes? Almost 50% of businesses that close during a disaster almost never reopen. Having a plan in place can decrease those odds and help your business get back on your feet quickly without a significant profit loss.

Does your ERP works on incident response and disaster recovery, meaning you will know what to do the second disaster strikes your business. We work with you on filling in all the needed information, such as shut off valves, chain of command, contact information, and more.

Call us today to get your FREE ERP. Why not be ready when disaster strikes?

Musty Building?!

4/12/2022 (Permalink)

Many of the older buildings in the Fayette County area have a distinct smell. People may say that they smell musty or old material. One way to freshen up the place is to have some deodorization done by SERVPRO of Fayette County. 

We use state of the art equipment to clean the air within your building. Depending on the odor we have a few techniques that we could use.

  • Thermal fogging is a technique which helps penetrate deeply into building materials.
  • An ozone machine is used to help add a fresh smell to odors that seem to linger such as smoke.
  • Old fashioned deep cleaning of walls should not be overlooked.
  • Carpet cleaning, using hot water extraction to remove deep and hard to remove soils.
  • Adding to any of the above methods is that of heating, ventilation and air conditioning cleaning (HVAC). Getting the air ducts clean will definitely freshen any building, no matter the age. 

Any questions?

Protecting Your Business From Mold

2/11/2022 (Permalink)

To protect your business, you require a comprehensive insurance policy that will safeguard you against most types of damage. Fungus growth is a necessary measure to have in a policy, and most commercial insurance policies will have some kind of mold coverage. There are definitely some exemptions to mold insurance, so you should check with your policy provider, so that you can know definitively whether you are safe.

1. When Mold Is Covered  Most commercial general liability insurance policies will cover mold damage. The reason for this is that it is viewed as an extension of water damage. When a flood impacts your building or when a pipe unexpectedly bursts due to freezing temperatures, your policy should cover the cost of repairing the damage. As far as addressing fungus growth, your policy will cover the cost of the direct physical loss, the cost of replacing the damaged substances and the cost of testing afterward to ensure there is no longer any mold.  

2. When Mold Is Not Covered   However, your insurance coverage may not pay for anything if the water damage was a result of your own negligence. For instance, you need to perform regular maintenance on your building’s pipes to ensure they remain sturdy and intact. If you fail to get them inspected once a year, then your insurance agency may not cover any damages. Additionally, most policies will have some kind of cap. For example, there may be a cap of $10,000 on a policy annually. That means if the total cost of fixing one instance of damage exceeds $10,000, then you will be left on the hook for anything leftover.

 Ultimately, it is for the best to have an insurance policy that covers fungus growth just in case. Mold can grow out of control, and thorough coverage can help you get your business back up and running in no time.

Fire Sprinklers

12/17/2021 (Permalink)

In some office buildings it is not uncommon for a fire sprinkler to be triggered without a fire present. If a light is pushed too close or someone burns some popcorn in the kitchen, you may have a small flood on your hands.

What should you do if this occurs?  

Actions To Take    

When your fire sprinklers go off with no apparent reason, it may be startling. Your first reaction might be to run away from the water to keep your hair looking pretty. However, you're going to need to take some steps to prevent too much water damage from occurring:

  • Confirm that there is indeed no fire.   
  • Turn off water  
  • Move what hasn't been damaged from the area.    
  • Dry off what you can.      
  • Ventilate area if possible.   
  • Calls To Make Next, you're going to need to contact somebody who can take care of this mess for you.

Hopefully you've identified a water damage restoration service that you can trust, they will have the best chance of restoring as much of your office as possible. Before they get there be sure to document all damage and take multiple pictures for your insurance company. Flooding of this nature may be covered under your all-peril insurance. You will also want to gather all you can to prove the value of damaged items for compensation.     

Mitigation Techniques 

The remediation company you call has the equipment and the expertise necessary to combat the water damage that has occurred. It is not recommended to try to clean it yourself, you might end up with a mold problem that will be much harder to get rid of.

First, they will need to remove the water with powerful pumps and vacuums. Then they will dry what's left with dehumidifiers and various air moving devices. All items that have been affected can also be restored, including electronics and documents. Flooding in your commercial building may seem like a show-stopper, but if you are ready you can minimize the amount of time that your business is shut down. Time is money, so try to be prepared for anything!

How Long Can Germs Live On Surfaces?

12/10/2021 (Permalink)

HOW LONG CAN GERMS LIVE ON SURFACES?

When germs are on the prowl, no place is safe. Buses, commuter trains, rental cars, and private vehicles transport both people and virulent bacteria. Retail establishments, health clubs, educational institutions, restaurants, hotel rooms, and even cruise ship cabins can shelter germs. Practically anything that you touch can expose you to viruses, putting your health at risk.

According to the National Health Service, the lifespan of a germ varies depending on the type of germ and the surface that it is on. How long can bacteria live on surfaces? Below we explore a few common examples.

COLD GERMS The common cold is a frequent source of misery. A variety of viruses can trigger it, and like other viruses, cold germs tend to survive for more extended periods on hard, nonporous surfaces like desktops and handrails. On suitable indoor surfaces, cold germs can linger for days, but fortunately, they rarely remain infectious for more than 24 hours. Cold viruses can also thrive on the skin, but their survival time there is generally measured in mere minutes or hours.

INFLUENZA GERMS Viruses that cause influenza can survive in the air as droplets for hours and live on hard surfaces like phones and keyboards for up to 24 hours. Infectious flu viruses clinging to a tissue can last for about 15 minutes, but germs on the hands tend to fade quickly. Most will be only a minimal threat after five minutes. It may be a small window of time, but influenza germs don’t warn you of their presence and can make you very sick if you’re unlucky enough to encounter them when they’re infectious. NOROVIRUS GERMS A highly contagious virus that triggers stomach cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea in those unfortunate enough to catch it, a norovirus can spread through small droplets that travel through the air before settling on surfaces like elevator buttons, tabletops, and clothing. While they don’t thrive as successfully on porous materials like tissues and fabrics, noroviruses can survive on hard surfaces for days or weeks if the conditions are favorable.   

MRSA GERMS Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteria, the culprits behind dangerous MRSA infections, are unfazed by many of the antibiotics that are effective in combating other staph infections. Like viruses, these germs tend to survive for shorter periods on porous surfaces than they do on nonporous ones, but they’re capable of living for days or weeks on surfaces if the circumstances are right.

PROTECTING YOURSELF FROM GERMS

Everyone has seen it. If you’ve worked in restaurants or other public venues, you may even have wielded it: the dreaded wet, grey rag. Habitually passed over tabletops between customers with a few desultory swipes, it is an inadequate weapon when it comes to eradicating germs. But what is required to disinfect a surface?

DISINFECTING BASICS

If you want to kill the germs lurking on a surface, you need to choose an appropriate disinfectant. You also have to apply it correctly. That means saturating the surface with enough of the germ-fighting chemical to get the job done and ensuring that there’s enough contact time (the time when the chemical is on the cover) to allow it to eliminate any germs present. Choosing a low-grade disinfectant or skimping on either saturation or contact time can compromise your germ-fighting efforts, so it’s vital that you select your products carefully and read and follow their directions.

Improving Cleanliness In Your Business

9/22/2021 (Permalink)

A picture of individuals that are cleaning their office/ shop. Improving Cleanliness In Your Business

There are a few simple tricks a company can do to help improve the cleanliness in their building.

One way is to place a door mat right on the outside of the door, and right at the entrance of the home. That way when people come to visit, they can scrape off their feet and leave whatever dirt and particles they have on their shoes behind. Just make sure to wash the door mats regularly otherwise those particles will linger. On hardwood or tile surfaces mopping regularly is a must. It may seem like extra work, but it will help clean up dust and mold spores left behind.

Also, do not forget the walls. Oftentimes people forget walls when it comes to their cleaning routine, and it can be important because dirt and particles stick to walls just like any other piece of furniture or flooring. Having a mat outside the doors is just the first step to keeping a clean building.

Cleaning of floors and walls regularly is the next step and your building will be cleaner.

Properly Restored Items After Water Damage

4/12/2021 (Permalink)

Can you restore items after water damage??

Which Item Can Be Properly Restored And Which Must Be Replaced:

If you have a flooded company building, there are many things you need to consider. With any type of water damage to your building, after restoration experts have properly mitigated damage, there is still the issue of content care with items inside your building.   

Electronics: After a flood or plumbing issue such as a broken pipe, electronics should be the main concern, as lasting water damage can irrevocably damage them. Electronics should all be powered off, such as:  

  • Computers or desktops 
  • DVD players  
  • Televisions  Laptops  
  • Phones     

If electronics have been damaged during a flood, it's a good idea to have them professionally restored. This may include drying the gadget and cleaning the corrosion. 

Food: 

  • If your flooded company stored any food within the building, you should wash, rinse, and disinfect anything that was in a metal can or retort pouch. After that, as long as the contents inside were not damaged, it is still safe to consume. Any utensils made of metal can be washed and sanitized, but anything made of wood that has come into contact with any water should be thrown out. 

Carpet:

  • Carpets are porous and should most likely be thrown out if they have significant damage. This is because carpets and rugs are porous and can attract mold or mildew, which will cause you more problems later on. If you have carpets or rugs that are not significantly damaged, bring them to a professional dry cleaning service before using them again.

With any type of water damage, it's important to document and report any damaged items to your insurance company. Items you need to replace within your company may be covered by insurance. If your commercial building has experienced any water damage event, it's important to clean and restore contents as soon as possible. A flooded company building should be properly restored before letting your employees come back to work.

The Importance of Business Cards

SERVPRO business card This is SERVPRO of Fayette's marketing representative's business card.

Humans are always traveling or going places on a day to day basis all the time. Airports are some of the busiest places in the world. Imagine how many different people you see on a daily basis or how many food places that you go to every day. Its said that on average, we'll see 3 million faces in our lifetime. That's a lot of people with a lot of different backgrounds and experiences that could add to your network by giving out a simple business card. Anyone is a potential customer or even knows a potential customer. 

Also carrying multiple business cards on you is crucial because you never know when someone could come out of no where seeking out your services or you could be on a lunch break somewhere and over hear someone needing the services you provide.

Leaving your cards in businesses that you visit sometimes could also lead to productivity by gaining exposure from fellow customers that go into that establishment as well. It also familiarizes your business and services with the companies that you leave your card with. Having business cards is one of the ultimate forms of exposure and is a great way to build your network and gain business.

How to get a Company to Remember You

12/27/2019 (Permalink)

I find it rather important that people remember who I am and what my mission is whenever I meet someone. As a marketing representative for SERVPRO this couldn't be more true for me as I am the first line of advertisement as well as the closer. Its my job to go around and make sure people know that SERVPRO is everything that we say we are and that we got their back in case of emergencies. For this I believe it is most important that I be memorable and I have some tips on how to leave your mark on people and be impossible to forget.

A good tip to be memorable, and a pretty important one at that, is to introduce yourself to others. No matter where you are act like you’re the host and be the first to say hello. Another tip is to be enthusiastic about things and life to others. People will gravitate to those upbeat, positive and cheerful people. Also if you can break the ice with some humor, you're six times more likely to be remembered. There are tons of other tips on how to be memorable, I just thought that these three were some of the most important tips. 

Emergency Ready Profiles

Emergency Ready Profile Logo Emergency Ready Profile Logo

Disaster strikes in the blink of eye, or in some cases the drip of a water heater tank. That's why it's always important to be prepared and have a plan of action. With SERVPRO, we have this thing called Emergency Ready Profiles that we prepare for businesses in case of emergency on site. What this is, is a laminated list of details and information about the building that are important for any type of disaster that pops up. 

The Emergency Ready Profile, or ERP for short, is a list that includes phone numbers of important people like the building owner, IT guy, building manager, fire department and other along that line. It also has pictures of the gas, water and electric shut offs and instructions on how to get to them and operate them. It details instructions to that company or business as well as details what our SERVPRO trucks and employees need to do if something happens and so much more. The ERPs are a vital asset to businesses that use them and prepare them for disaster until we can get on site and mediate the problem.

Professionalism and Business Etiquette

12/27/2019 (Permalink)

What is business etiquette and why is it important? This is the question I asked myself upon first introduction to business etiquette my senior year at West Virginia University. As my teacher continued to speak and go in-depth about it and explain to us fresh faces about to enter the workforce what business etiquette was, I couldn't help but think that some of the stuff he was detailing was a little weird and maybe a tad bit extra mile-ish for interviews and formal business functions. However, I continued to listen and absorb the information because I wanted to learn how to be a professional and talk to other professionals without making a fool of myself in the process. 

Over the next couple months, I began practicing this business etiquette at interviews and with various professionals that I knew outside of school and work. I picked up on some of it right away because I am naturally a social and energetic person but it was more than just being social. Having grade A business etiquette is something that takes practice and something that is not always set in stone. It kind of shifts between different people that you're interacting with. For example the CEO of Texas Road House is probably way different than the CEO of Ford or Ferrari for example. 

Regardless of who it is that you're talking to or doing business with, the basis of all business etiquette is fairly the same and can take you far in your business with other people. It's a very nice skill to practice and can help you succeed in ways you never expected. Always know your audience and always stay professional!

Of all of the disasters that could happen to a home or a business, floods are the most unpredictable, because of the damage they can cause. Depending on how bad the flood is, a home or business owner may be able to salvage there structure by disposing of furniture, carpets and drywall. However some floods can do as much as tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in repair costs. Unfortunately, most flood damage is not covered by your insurance company.

When you have a flood in your home of business, such as a flooded warehouse, it's important to have the structure dried out and cleaned as soon as possible. The longer the structure stays wet, the more of a chance of mold growth.
