Northern Connecticut Businesses Can Purchase SERVPRO’s Proprietary Disinfectant

9/28/2021 (Permalink)

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned badge Your customers strongly prefer businesses that are visibly clean. Be sure yours is by using SERVPROXIDE, our proprietary disinfectant.

As a corporation, SERVPRO was well-prepared to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Building on our expertise in deep cleaning and disinfecting, SERVPRO developed and began offering a new professional corporate pathogen cleaning service called Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

One key element of this cleaning program is SERVPROXIDE™, our in-house hospital-grade disinfectant. When used as directed, SERVPROXIDE kills 99.999% of bacteria and viruses. We feel that this product is so effective and easy to use that, for the first time in more than five decades, SERVPRO has decided to sell  SERVPROXIDE directly to corporate customers (through Amazon Business) in northern Connecticut and beyond.

Customers Strongly Prefer a Clean Facility

A “Cleaned with SERVPRO Disinfectants” window sticker is available with certain SERVPROXIDE purchases. Why is that important? Well, one thing that COVID-19 has shown business owners is that customers really care about cleanliness. In fact, in a 2020 Harris Poll, 71% of consumers expect businesses to be cleaner than their own homes. Now, as our nation continues to fight the pandemic, business owners need to take steps to show customers that they are maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness in their facilities.

When used as directed, SERVPROXIDE kills a wide range of pathogens, disinfects hard surfaces, sanitizes soft surfaces and neutralizes odors on fabrics and carpets—yet it carries the EPA’s lowest toxicity rating and is NSF-rated for use on food contact surfaces with no rinse required. (Note that if you experience COVID-19 contamination at your facility, SERVPRO advises hiring a professional pathogen cleaning service to completely sanitize your facility.) 

“Since launching our professional pathogen cleaning service, our customers have been asking for support with their daily follow-up cleaning. We listened,” said Mike Stahl, SERVPRO’s Chief Marketing Officer. “SERVPROXIDE can elevate everyday cleaning for business owners as they proactively clean registers, door handles, restrooms, counters, tabletops, or any other surface.”

This Is One Happy SERVPROXIDE Customer!

“Being 100% sure that our cleaning practices are effective gives us the opportunity to focus on what we do. We make pizza!!! Anyone that works in a high-volume pizzeria knows what a whirlwind of chaos it can be. The fact that SERVPROXIDE is ready to use and requires no dilution, gives me peace of mind about what we’re using on our food surfaces, as well as NSF and EPA registrations. I want our customers to know that we take their health seriously, and that’s why we choose to use SERVPROXIDE in our food truck. You trust us to make pizza, we trust SERVPRO to make our disinfectant. It’s as simple as that. Also, pineapple DOES belong on pizza,” stated Danny Bruckert, owner/pizza maker for Groundlings Pizza Co., Brooklyn, NY.

Work shoes covered in sludge Whether it's a sewage backup, bloodborne pathogen, chemical spill or other biohazard mess, call SERVPRO for fast, complete and respectful cleanup.

If you own or manage a business, you know what a balancing act it can be. There are predictable challenges to be met and then there are situations that occur without warning. Having a sudden biohazard contamination at your north central Connecticut facility is one of those situations, and being able to deal with it quickly can make a huge difference to your operations and your profitability.

Maybe your sewage backed up. Maybe there’s a chemical spill. Perhaps there was an accident or crime, and now you have bloodborne contamination in your building. Whatever happened, it’s essential that you get the biohazardous substances cleaned up fast and completely, all while following safety and cleanliness regulations. And, you have to prevent ongoing contamination while you protect the health of your employees and customers.

That’s where SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield comes in. We have the specific training, experience, equipment and products to safely, swiftly and thoroughly clean up even the worst biohazard messes in accordance with OSHA and health regulations.

A living room is flooded with water Your home's water damage may be small or large, but SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield will respond promptly, clean up thoroughly and work respectfully.

Water damage in your home can be a seemingly endless problem that can drain your time, energy, emotions and—let’s face it—your money.

Other times, the damage is less overwhelming but still quite serious, such as when a water appliance fails or a pipe bursts. And other times, the damage is more subtle, for instance when a small, unnoticed leak creates a colony of mold.

All these situations need to be treated as a true water emergency and dealt with promptly and professionally. That’s why you should call SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield to restore your home and property back to before-damage condition. SERVPRO has the people, tools and experience to do your water damage cleanup and restoration job the right way. See what our customers have to say about working with us.

Clean Up Water Damage in Your Bloomfield Home the Right Way

8/11/2021 (Permalink)

Raindrops fall in a town Even if you have just a little water damage in your Bloomfield home, you need to get everything completely dried and dehumidified—and it's not easy.

Small or large, water damage in your Bloomfield house needs to be taken seriously. Puddles or flood, it’s a genuine emergency that can end up costing you thousands of dollars. The problem is, the job is not as simple as mopping up the water and hoping it dries.

It’s not just the water you see on the floor that’s the problem; it’s also the moisture. Your floors, floor coverings, walls, furnishings and possessions all need to be 100% dried out. That’s not something you can necessarily do by yourself. And if you try, will you be sure all the moisture is removed? If not, you can suffer more structural damage, lingering odors and the very real potential for a serious mold infestation.

A professional water damage remediation company like SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield will bring your home and property back to before-damage condition. SERVPRO has the people, tools and experience to do the job the right way.

Removing the Water

SERVPRO brings in our powerful pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units to quickly remove the majority of water from your property—sometimes, hundreds or thousands of gallons! Depending on how much water needs to be removed, we may use powerful submersible pumps in addition to industrial wet/dry vacuums. 

Among the other tools and equipment we use to remove the water from your Bloomfield home are:

  • Moisture detectors, hygrometers and other meters to measure the degree of saturation
  • Infrared cameras that can detect water lurking behind walls and ceilings

It’s important that water removal be done thoroughly, which will speed up the next step, drying and dehumidifying. 

Drying Your Property

Even the best water extraction equipment cannot remove all the moisture in floors and walls that have been soaked. Because nearly all building materials (such as wood, drywall and flooring materials) are porous, they absorb water, and that can cause them to swell, warp, degrade or become infested with mold.

The SERVPRO crew measures square footage, temperature and humidity levels to calculate how many air movers and dehumidifiers are needed to dry your home. Then we bring our best equipment to bear on restoring your home:

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers to help prevent secondary water damage (swelling and warping)
  • High-speed air movers to create airflow that accelerates the evaporation of moisture

We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until everything is sufficiently dried and dehumidified.

Meanwhile, SERVPRO dries, cleans and deodorizes your furnishings and personal possessions. When everything is fully restored, we return your property to your home, leaving you with no traces of the water disaster!

The team that came was very kind and informative—even my kids learned a few things!”—Nikita in Enfield

“Recently we had a fire in our kitchen from a towel catching fire by the stove. Just a few days later, SERVPRO removed all the damaged material and furniture from our home. The builders were able to start the reconstruction process very soon, thanks to their speediness. I’m very happy with the hard work put in by the SERVPRO team.”—Saul in East Granby

“On an extremely windy and very cold night two weeks ago, our woodstove experienced a sudden and profound back-draft, which filled the main floor of our house with thick, dark smoke, and also caused a small fire in the room. Through our insurance company we engaged SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield shortly after the event. This was an entirely new experience for us and after our first interaction with SERVPRO staff we knew we were in good hands. They really know their stuff. The project was handled with professional efficiency from start to finish and the results were absolutely amazing. The team of women who spent hours cleaning everything in the house was thorough and so very polite and patient with this harried home-owner.

A book is on fire Call SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield to thoroughly clean and deodorize your Granby home and possessions after the flames have been put out.

Your Granby home caught fire! Fortunately, everyone is safe and unhurt. But your house? There could be a lot of damage ... and maybe you can’t even stay there until it’s cleaned up and repaired. Beyond the practical challenges of getting your life and home back in shape, you’re facing strong emotions and the uncertainty of exactly how to restore the damage to your home and your possessions—and fire, smoke and soot are extremely challenging to fully clean up.

You need to find a local fire damage cleanup expert who is trustworthy and knowledgeable—and who can get the job done quickly and completely. In Granby and north central Connecticut, turn to SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield. We have the resources, experience and equipment to fully restore your home. We’ll respond ASAP, evaluate your home and property and clean, restore and deodorize your possessions and structure.

This is our three-part approach to remediating damage from fire, smoke and soot after a house fire in Granby.

We Clean and Restore Your Building

A house fire leaves soot and other damage on your walls, ceilings, floors and trim. Upon arrival, we assess the damage, then use the appropriate equipment and products to clean each surface. We remove all traces of soot and prepare the surfaces to be repainted if necessary.

We Clean and Restore Your Personal Possessions

SERVPRO will evaluate your furnishings—including area rugs, furniture and window treatments—and your personal possessions—such as electronics, kitchen items, clothing, bedding, artwork, books and documents—to determine what is restorable. We test each item to determine which of our many cleaning techniques will be safest and most effective.

Because fire damage remediation can be complicated, SERVPRO creates a digital inventory of all your damaged items. This makes it easy to track every possession as it moves through the restoration process, while creating clear documentation for your insurance claim.

We Deodorize Everything in Your Home

In addition to cleaning your Granby home and everything in it, SERVPRO deodorizes your structure and possessions of lingering smoke odor. Rather than masking odors, we use advanced equipment, such as foggers that penetrate all the crevices in your home and furnishings, to remove smoke odors at the source.

How to Prepare for Hurricane Season

7/21/2021 (Permalink)

A house damaged by a hurricane With hurricane season starting in north central Connecticut, be prepared for the storms with these tips from SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield.

Summer and fall are known as hurricane season in many parts of the U.S. Each year, it seems like there are more storms, the storms are more powerful and damaging—and the season starts earlier and goes on longer. That means that you need to be prepared for hurricanes that might park over your home or business and drop lots of rain while the winds whirl—and that means increased property damage!

This summer and fall, make sure you prepare your home or business to withstand more wind and more water from more hurricanes. Here are several important steps to take when a hurricane is forecasted for your area.

Reinforce Your Structure

Few weather events can cause the kind of damage that a hurricane can, with its high wind speeds and wind-driven rain. If a hurricane is on its way, check these parts of your house or business.

  • Roof: The winds of a hurricane can peel some or all of your roof right off. Even just a few missing shingles will allow water to penetrate your home or business. Before the storm, check for missing or damaged shingles, and consider hiring a roofing pro to repair or replace them.
  • Gutters: A well-working gutter will route water from your roof and away from your home. Look at your gutters before the storm: are they securely attached? are they unclogged? Again, a roofer can do this and perform any needed repairs.
  • Windows: Windows are particularly vulnerable to hurricane damage, so you may want to cover them, either with plywood or hurricane shutters.
  • Lawn and Driveway: If large objects aren’t secured in place, they can be thrown around by the strong winds, potentially smashing into your home or business or other property. If you can store objects inside (garbage cans and outdoor furniture, for example), do so. Otherwise lash everything down.

Keep Your Family Safe and Healthy

The strong winds of a hurricane can cause power outages that can last for a week or more. It’s wise to set your refrigerator and freezer to the lowest possible temperature before the storm arrives. Food will keep for 4 hours in an unopened refrigerator and will remain frozen for 48 hours in a full freezer.

Protect the health and safety of your family by putting together a cache of food, water and other supplies. This should include:

  • Nonperishable food to last three days or more
  • A gallon of water for each person per day
  • An emergency kit that contains:
    —First aid supplies
    —Flashlights and batteries
    —Charged cell phones
    —Pain relievers and essential medications
    —Important paperwork (for identification and insurance claims)
    —Cash

Your Enfield commercial building can become infested with mold in a number of ways. All it takes is moisture plus some time, and the mold spores that are naturally floating around in the air can find a place to grow!

How can you prevent a mold problem? And if your building already has mold, how can you get rid of it?

Preventing Mold in Your Enfield Commercial Building

The primary way to prevent mold from growing in your office, factory, restaurant, hotel, retail shop or warehouse is to keep water out. No water = no mold.

  • Routinely check your facility for leaks (especially from the roof, around windows, near pipes and vents, and close to water fixtures). Clean up and repair any leaks ASAP.
  • Periodically check the humidity in your building. Even a too-high level of humidity can cause mold to grow.
  • If employees or customers report a mildewy odor, look into it.
  • If you have a flood in your building, get the water cleaned up and building materials, furnishings and items completely dried out within 48 hours—or call a professional water damage restoration company like SERVPRO.

Getting Rid of Mold

If you discover a mold infestation in your place of business, the most important thing is not to ignore it. You can try to tackle the problem yourself, but mold issues have a way of persisting. You think you can dry out the area yourself and simply wipe away the mold, but mold is a stubborn foe.

Here at SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield, we are highly skilled at mold removal. We have the sophisticated training, the proven procedures, the equipment (like air movers, commercial dehumidifiers and moisture meters) and the experience to eradicate your mold infestation the first time.

These are the steps we recommend you take (and not take!) once you discover a mold problem at your Enfield commercial facility:

What not to do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces that has visible or suspected mold.
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.

What to do:

  • Stay out of the affected areas.
  • Turn off your HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield for mold remediation services.
