5/14/2020 (Permalink)

Let us help you get back to business

As our communities re-open, we’re all moving back toward a new kind of normal. The expectations of visitors, customers, and employees who come into our establishments have evolved, and staying safe and well is a top concern. The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed what it means to be clean, and we’ve developed a program to help your business meet the new higher standard of clean that is now expected.

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned is a defensive cleaning program we’re offering to businesses and commercial locations to address the current COVID-19 pandemic. This proactive viral pathogen cleaning program goes well beyond janitorial or carpet cleaning. By choosing Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, you, your employees, your customers, and your community can rest assured that you’ve selected a higher cleaning standard – you are Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

Extensive training and specialized products

As the #1 choice in cleanup and restoration*, we stand on more than 50 years of experience and expertise to help your business become Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.  Beyond fire & water, SERVPRO professionals are trained and experienced in biohazard decontamination and chemical spills – always adhering to the cleaning and decontamination standards set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local authorities. 

From formulating and creating our proprietary cleaning products, like SERVPROXIDE, at our headquarters in Gallatin, TN, to taking the utmost care while disinfecting, we will ensure you and your business are set up to inspire consumer confidence as the economy continues to reopen.

3 C’s – Consult, Clean, and Certify

When the stakes are this high, you want a partner who has developed an industry leading, proprietary training program, cleaning solutions, and remediation processes over decades. We’ve cleaned up some of the most challenging biohazards imaginable. Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned reflects our unique experiences and capabilities. The program is grounded with our unique 3 C’s: Consult, Clean, and Certify.

  • Consult – Every business is different, which is why you’ll be assigned a Cleaning Protocol Consultant who understands your business and will create a cleaning program to meet your specific needs. This program will be developed based on your business type, size of space, amount of high frequency touchpoints, foot traffic and congestion points.
  • Clean – Based on your specific business needs, your location will undergo a thorough, deep clean, using exclusive cleaning products, according to protocols set forth by the CDC. Our employees have years of experience, and we will go beyond the scope of work that regular janitorial staff perform. Cleanup procedures generally include cleaning of porous and non-porous surfaces, disinfecting of non-porous surfaces, cleaning and disinfecting of equipment, tools, and/or supplies used for cleanup process, and disposal of hazardous materials.  In the event of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 event, we will be there cleaning within 24 hours to ensure you get back to business as quickly as possible. 
  • Certify - Once your business location has been Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, you will gain access to proprietary signage, digital emblems, and other collateral that communicates that you’ve selected a higher standard of clean available to help protect your employees and customers. And because we add the day, month, and year to that proprietary stamp of clean, your guests will know that not only did you choose Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, but that your location is being cleaned regularly at this standard.

SERVPRO Gives Back During COVID-19

SERVPRO of Waycross, Hinesville, and Douglas were happy to help local first responders in Ware County by sanitizing emergency response vehicles.

Our first responders are always on the front line responding to calls and coming into contact with a lot of unknown. To give them peace of mind SERVPRO of Waycross, Hinesville, and Douglas offered a free wipe down and sanitation service of all emergency vehicles.

Our team was able to wipe down the interior of fire trucks, police cars, and ambulances. It was such a small act- but we hope the first responders know how much we care and respect them being on the front lines for us every day.

Dryer Fire

5/1/2020 (Permalink)

Most of us don’t think about the maintenance of our dryers, but we should! The U.S. Fire Administration reports that every year there are thousands of home fires started by clothes dryers.

Lint and debris can build up in your dryer vent, reducing airflow to the dryer, backing up dryer exhaust gases, which can result in a fire hazard. It is recommended you have your dryer exhaust system cleaned at least twice a year.

How to tell if your dryer vent is clogged

  • The normal drying cycle is not drying clothes
  • Clothes are hotter at the end of the cycle
  • A large amount of lint accumulates in the lint trap
  • Your laundry area is more humid
  • The burnt smell in your laundry room
  • The outside dryer vent cover is not lifting

There are tips online on how to clean your dryer vent system, but it is recommended you hire a professional. In addition to the reduced threat of fire, a cleaning can pay for itself in less than a year through improved efficiency with less drying time required.

SERVPRO of Waycross, Hinesville & Douglas is here for you should you do have a loss from a dryer vent fire.

Preparing Your Business for Tornado Season

SERVPRO semi truck and pick up truck. SERVPRO is here to help.

Spring brings lots of changes, especially with the weather. A sunny week can be followed by a week of storms, and you will want to be prepared for all possible scenarios.

You will want to do an assessment of your property before heavy rains:

1. Proper Drainage

2. Roof Leaks

3. Window and Door Leaks

Make arrangements as soon as possible for repairs to be done before another storm passes through town.

Thunderstorms cause most of the severe spring weather. Lightning, flooding, and other types of activity will be a part of your spring weather experience, which is caused when warm, moist air collides with cool, dry air. Planning ahead makes sense so that your property and the people you care about can avoid injury and damages.

Here are some things to think about or to have on hand for storms:

  • A battery-operated flashlight, with extra batteries.
  • A battery-operated, NOAA Weather Radio.
  • An emergency evacuation plan. Have a map with an escape route in case of a flood. Make sure everyone knows where to go in the event of a disaster.
  • Make sure everyone has a list of updated emergency contact information.
  • A First Aid Kit

Planning ahead before wet weather hits is always a good idea. Call us here at SERVPRO of Waycross, Hinesville & Douglas if your property sustains water or flood damage.

Lightning Strike Causes Fire Damage

4/26/2020 (Permalink)

Lightning is a natural phenomenon that occurs very often in South Georgia. Bolts can sometimes be greater than 100 million volts, in just one lightning strike! Lightning is one of the most deadly forces on the earth and can cause serious structural damages.

When lightning strikes your home or business, the most commonplace for a fire to start is within the attic. Attic fires spread fast with the insulation feeding the fire. Lighting can also cause electric fires.

SERVPRO of Waycross, Hinesville & Douglas is equipped to handle fire damages after lightning strikes. We are heading into the peak of hurricane season- if your home or business is damaged by lightning contact our office for a free assessment.
