SERVPRO’s Hospital-Grade Disinfectant Now Available to Glastonbury-Area Businesses

8/23/2021 (Permalink)

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned window decal SERVPRO's safe and highly effective disinfectant, SERVPROXIDE, can help you show your customers how seriously you take their safety.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. in 2020, SERVPRO responded by creating a new service called Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned. We set the bar for professional corporate pathogen cleaning standards by bringing our professional skill, our highly-trained crew members and our unique products to the task.

One key to this targeted corporate cleaning program has been our in-house hospital-grade disinfectant, SERVPROXIDE™, which kills 99.999% of bacteria and viruses when used as directed. Now, SERVPRO is excited to announce that SERVPROXIDE disinfectant—the first product we have sold directly to customers in our 50+-year history—is now available for customers on Amazon Business.

A Sanitized Facility Inspires Customer Confidence

Once again, as colder weather approaches and COVID-19 cases rise, business owners know that demonstrating the highest standards of clean in their facilities is important in sustaining customer confidence. In fact, a recent Harris Poll showed that 71% of consumers expect businesses to have higher cleanliness standards than they do in their own homes. (A “Cleaned with SERVPRO Disinfectants” window sticker is available with some purchases.)

“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.”

SERVPROXIDE disinfectant has earned the EPA’s lowest toxicity rating and is NSF-rated for use on food contact surfaces with no rinse required. Yet, when used as directed, it kills a wide variety of harmful pathogens, disinfects hard surfaces, sanitizes soft surfaces and neutralizes odors on fabrics and carpets. Nonetheless, if you experience a COVID-19 event at your business, SERVPRO recommends having a professional pathogen cleaning service sanitize your facility. 

What Does SERVPROXIDE Have to Do With Pineapple?

We just couldn’t help sharing this review!

“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.

Don’t Let a Hurricane Shut Down Your Wethersfield Business

7/28/2021 (Permalink)

A hurricane cloud spins in the sky There's a lot you can do to protect your Wethersfield business from hurricane damage. Follow these tips from SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield.

A hurricane or strong wind storm hitting your commercial building can be a true disaster, one that might threaten the continued survival of your business. You can’t stop Mother Nature, but you can be ready to prevent damage and recover quickly if you get hit by a storm. So, during hurricane season, Wethersfield business owners and managers should take these precautions to avert the worst effects of a hurricane.

Long Before the Storm Hits

If your business is located within 50 miles of the coast—and all of Wethersfield is!—then you are at increased risk of suffering both property damage and a business interruption from a hurricane.

  • Stay informed about potential hurricanes and other storms. You can sign up the National Hurricane Center to receive updates of threatening weather.
  • Long before a hurricane is in the forecast, you should create a business continuity plan that details how your business will recover from storm-related and other damage.
  • Keep a well-stocked emergency kit on hand, including first aid equipment, battery-powered radio, flashlights and a supply of nonperishable food and water.
  • Maintain an updated emergency contact list of all your employees.
  • Decide which storm damage remediation company—we suggest SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield!—will handle your cleanup and restoration.

When the Storm Is on its Way

A storm is coming, and Wethersfield is forecasted to feel the effects. Now is the time to get to work protecting your physical plant from wind and rain. Take as many of these precautions as you can before the hurricane hits.

  • Cover your windows and doors with plywood or hurricane shutters.
  • Make sure that exhaust fans, solar panels and HVAC equipment are firmly attached to your roof.
  • Move vehicles inside to a garage or warehouse. Lash down signs, dumpsters and other heavy objects outside your building.
  • Inside, move documents to a secure area, above ground level. Cover computers, copiers and other electronic equipment with plastic sheets.

After the Storm Passes

  • Use your contact list to check in with your employees.
  • Contact your insurance company ASAP to get a start on processing any property damage claims.
  • Take photos and video of damage, and keep receipts for storm-related expenses.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield for the quickest, most thorough storm damage remediation at a time when lots of Wethersfield businesses will be competing for storm cleanup services.

Use Your Generator Safely After a Storm

7/22/2021 (Permalink)

A portable generator Survive the storm and its aftermath by following our tips on safe use of generators.

Every storm season ends in tragedy for some folks. If it’s not the natural disaster itself—hurricane, tornado, blizzard, flood or other big storm—it’s the cleanup or aftermath that causes unnecessary injuries and deaths.

As an example, Hurricane Laura slammed into the state of Louisiana in August 2020. The category 4 winds reached 150 miles per hour, the storm surge reached 15 feet, and hundreds of thousands of people lost power. Although they survived the storm and flooding, many Louisianans died in the aftermath from carbon monoxide poisoning from incorrectly used generators.

The Deadly Toll of Unsafe Generators

According to The New York Times, “The electrical outages have been deadly, as several people who turned to generators to power refrigerators, lights and air conditioners have been overcome with fumes.

“At least seven people have been killed by carbon monoxide from generators, including four members of a family found dead in a home in Lake Charles. A fifth member of that family was taken to a hospital. Their generator was in a garage and the deadly gas was able to seep into the house through a garage door that was left cracked open, [Lake Charles mayor Nic] Hunter said.

“Another man in Calcasieu Parish, which includes Lake Charles, died of carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator, as did an 84-year-old man and an 80-year-old woman in the same home in Allen Parish, to the northeast, said health officials, who warned people never to place generators in homes or in closed garages.”

Guidelines for Safe Generator Use

Colorless, odorless and tasteless carbon monoxide gas (CO) is produced by portable generators. In just five minutes, carbon monoxide can build up inside a garage or home to levels high enough to sicken or even kill, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Prevent a post-storm tragedy by following these safe generator use guidelines.

  • Don’t operate your generator in an enclosed area, such as a garage, or inside a house. Deadly carbon monoxide can build up even in a partially enclosed space.
  • Set up your generator at least 20 feet from your house and aim the engine exhaust away from windows and doors.
  • Allow for 3 to 4 feet of clear space on all sides and above your generator for ventilation.
  • Set up a battery-operated carbon monoxide detector when you are running your generator to let you know if CO is building up.
  • If it’s raining, set up a tent or canopy to keep your generator dry while allowing for ventilation.
  • Watch for symptoms of CO poisoning: dizziness, fatigue, headaches and nausea. If anyone is affected, everyone should quickly go outside to fresh air and call 911. Remain outside until your house has been declared free from carbon monoxide.
  • If you’re purchasing a new generator, choose one that has a sensor that will automatically detect dangerous levels of CO and shut itself off.

A man cleans up fire damage from a wall If your Rocky Hill home suffers fire, smoke and soot damage, call SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield for start-to-finish cleanup.

We’ll get there fast, assess the damage, clean your possessions and structure, and remove the lingering smoke smell.

Here are three ways we provide complete fire, smoke and soot restoration services after you’ve had a house fire.

Cleaning Your Structure

After a house fire, your walls, ceilings, trim and floors will need to be completely cleaned. When you call SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield, our crew will evaluate the damage, then determine the appropriate equipment and products to clean and protect the different surfaces in your structure. We may be able to reduce your costs by cleaning lighter soot deposits so that you don’t have to repaint. Otherwise, we will clean to prepare for painting, which removes the soot, deodorizes and ensures that paint will adhere properly to the surface.

Cleaning Your Possessions

SERVPRO will examine the contents of your home to determine what is restorable, including area rugs, furniture, draperies and upholstery. We test fabrics and surfaces to determine which cleaning methods are most appropriate for each item; it may be a wet or dry cleaning method. Other items may include electronics, art, kitchen items, clothing, bedding, books and documents. SERVPRO uses the appropriate unique cleaning methods and products for every type of object.

SERVPRO also makes fire damage restoration easier by providing a digital inventory of all your damaged items, making it simple to track everything through the cleaning process and to document your insurance claim.

Deodorizing Everything

SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield completes the fire damage restoration job by clearing your home of odors left by fire or smoke damage. We do not merely cover up lingering odors with a fragrance; we seek out the sources of the odor and remove them with advanced equipment, such as foggers that penetrate all the crevices in your home and furnishings.

Hurricane on the Way? Get Ready!

7/16/2021 (Permalink)

A house is surrounded by damage from a hurricane As hurricane season approaches, prepare your home or business to withstand the damage—and be ready to ride out a power outage, too.

Summer brings with it the risk of powerful windstorms in the form of hurricanes, and each year, it seems like the storms hit earlier and drop more rain—and there are more of them, too! So take the risk of windstorms seriously and if a hurricane is in the forecast, take these steps to protect your home and family.

Protect Your Home or Business

The high winds and wind-driven rain of a hurricane can severely damage your home or business. Prepare for a hurricane by paying attention to these areas of your structure.

  • Roof: You don’t have to lose your roof to hurricane winds to suffer damage to your structure; if shingles are ripped off, you could end up with water in your home or business. Start by checking your roof for missing or damaged shingles. Consider hiring a roofer before the storm to replace or repair any vulnerable areas.
  • Gutters: So that they can route all the expected water, check your gutters to be sure they are secured to the structure and are unclogged. (A roofer can do this work, too.)
  • Windows: Your windows are a weak point in a hurricane. If you have hurricane shutters, attach them, or nail plywood over the window openings.
  • Exterior: Objects outside your home or business should be secured. Otherwise, they can become dangerous projectiles tossed about by the winds that can crash into your structure or other property. Large objects such as garbage cans and outdoor furniture should be stored inside, if possible, or tied down securely.

Protect Your Family

Hurricanes often knock out power for several days or more, so keep your family safe and healthy by setting aside at least several days’ worth of food and water.

  • Store enough nutritious nonperishable food to last three days to two weeks.
  • Store one gallon of water for each person per day.
  • Turn your refrigerator and freezer down to the lowest possible temperature before the storm arrives. An unopened refrigerator will keep food safe for 4 hours, while a full freezer will keep food frozen for 48 hours.

A hurricane carries the risk of injuries or illness. Keep a fully-stocked emergency kit in your home that includes:

  • First aid supplies
  • Flashlights with batteries
  • Fully charged cell phones
  • Pain relievers and regular medications
  • Important paperwork (for identification and insurance claims)
  • Cash

Call SERVPRO When DIY Doesn’t Get the Job Done

7/12/2021 (Permalink)

A wooden floor and carpet covered with water DIY after a water or fire disaster in your home may cost you more time and money … call SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield for a job done right!

Especially after last year’s pandemic and quarantine, Do It Yourself (DIY)—doing your own home repair and improvement projects—has really taken off. This multibillion dollar industry means that more and more of us are taking on our own fix-it jobs.

One of the primary reasons to DIY is to save money. But for many homeowners, DIY projects end up going bad and creating more expense and mess than using a professional contractor.

How often does this happen? Well, in a recent survey of 2,000 homeowners done by Improvenet, an online referral service for remodelers, almost two-thirds of the respondents regretted doing one or more DIY projects! And in one out of three of those regrettable projects, the homeowner hired a professional to complete the job. That translates into more than twenty percent of the surveyed DIYers needed to have a contractor come in and fix their mistakes or finish the job.

It gets worse: more than eight percent of the DIYers caused damage to their home, and more than six percent had injured themselves or a helper while doing a DIY project.

DIY After Water or Fire Damage Is a Challenge

If you’ve suffered a water or fire disaster at your home, you may be considering doing the repairs yourself, especially if the damage doesn’t appear to be too extensive. We at SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield have seen it all, and know that what seems like an easy repair can end up costing you time and money if you don’t get the damage cleaned up the right way.

If you’ve had a flooded basement or perhaps a leak from a roof or water appliance, you can attempt to clean up the damage by yourself. Unfortunately, you probably don’t have equipment such as strong wet vacs, air movers and moisture measuring devices, so you may not get all the water out quickly enough. In just 48 hours, lingering moisture can lead to an ongoing mold problem. SERVPRO will do your water damage cleanup quickly and completely, leaving nothing to chance.

Likewise, if you’ve had a small fire at your home, you may be tempted to do the repair yourself. But a fire can be deceptive: is your home’s structure damaged? Is there lingering smoke and soot? What about the water used to put out the fire? Even a seemingly-simple fire cleanup job may require specialized cleaning methods and products. SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield will make sure that your structure is sound, while cleaning and deodorizing your home and everything in it.
