Proactive Cleaning & Disinfecting

7/15/2020 (Permalink)

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned is a cleaning and disinfecting program that SERVPRO offers to commercial locations to address the current COVID-19 pandemic. This pandemic has changed what it means to be clean and being open for business is just the beginning of everyone’s new journey forward. Employees may be hesitant to return to work, and customers may wonder whether the businesses they visit are safe. If a building or structure is sanitized and disinfected as part of the CSC program, a window decal shield will be left there, as well as a separate window decal which should be dated by the franchise to let everyone know when it was last sanitized and disinfected. This can be scheduled as a one time or recurring service. This is a level of clean that goes way beyond janitorial or carpet cleaning, it is proactive viral pathogen cleaning. Beyond fire and water, SERVPRO professionals are trained and experienced in bio hazard decontamination. When businesses choose SERVPRO, their employees, customers, and community can rest assured that they have selected a “higher standard of clean.”

Fireplace Safety

7/15/2020 (Permalink)

A cozy fire crackling in the fireplace or wood stove is the perfect thing to get rid of the winter chill. Here are some tips to keep in mind so that you may enjoy your fire safely:

  • A fire screen will help protect you and your floors from any sparks that may try to fly out
  • Keep flammable items at least three feet from open flames
  • Have a professional perform the installation of your fireplace or wood stove and be sure that it is to code
  • Have your chimney and fireplace/stove cleaned regularly to your local codes
  • Always use the appropriate type of wood and fire starters for your fireplace. The dryer the wood the better as this will provide a cleaner burn and result in less creosote build up
  • Regularly clean the ashes out of your fireplace and be sure that the ashes are cool before placing in a metal container. Keep the ashes away from your home, garage and porch

Generator Safety

Generators can be very helpful to have on hand in the event of a power outage during severe weather. Follow these steps from the American Red Cross to ensure safe handling of your generator:

  • To avoid electrocution, keep your generator dry and do not use in wet conditions (i.e. a flood). Have it running on a dry, flat surface under a shelter such as a canopy-like structure (i.e. a tarp supported by poles). Do not touch the generator if your hands are wet.
  • Never run a generator inside your home, garage, basement, crawlspace or any partially enclosed area. The same goes for grills, camp stoves, or other gasoline, propane, natural gas, or charcoal-burning devices.
  • Using fans or opening your doors and windows won’t prevent carbon monoxide (CO) buildup in your home. CO can’t be smelled or seen so it is critical when running a generator to use caution to prevent exposure. If you start to feel sick, weak or dizzy while using a generator, get to fresh air immediately.
  • Install CO alarms on every level in your home in central locations and outside sleeping areas. These will provide early warnings of rising CO levels.

  3. Keep any flammable items at least three feet away from the open flames.
  4. Always use the appropriate type of wood and flame starters when using your fireplace. The dryer the wood the better.
  5. When installing your fireplace be sure to have a qualified professional perform the installation.
  6. Make sure you have your fireplace inspected and chimney cleaned according to your local codes and by a professional.

Has your business suffered Water or Flood Damage?

At SERVPRO of Lompoc we have the proper commercial equipment and expertise on handling water damage losses to commercial facilities to help your building get back up and running with as minimal down time as possible.

Whether you experience a water loss from flooding or a plumbing malfunction the general mitigation  process is the same, though each water damage has a unique solution.  Please feel free to click on these steps that we have listed below to learn more about the process.  

Step 1 - Emergency Contact

Once you contact our office at 805-733-8911 the restoration process begins. Our representative will guide you through the first notice of loss and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources needed to respond to your commercial water damage.

Step 2 - Inspection and Water Damage Assessment

A Project Manager or Water Damage Technician will determine the scope of your water damage at this stage. We inspect and test your commercial facility to determine the extent of the water damage and to see which areas it has affected and traveled to make sure we ensure proper mitigation and restoration.

Step 3 - Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately with extraction which removes the majority of the water.  Once the extraction of any standing water is completed, the necessary equipment is set including commercial fans and dehumidifiers.  We also have a variety of other commercial equipment including a trailer mounted Desiccant Dehumidifier that includes a generator when needed.  The water removal and drying out of the structure helps prevent mold growth.

Step 4 - Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean any affected restorable items and structures damaged by the water. We have different techniques of cleaning based on the situation. Our professionals are trained to provide sanitizing treatments and to remove odors and deodorize your property.

Step 5 - Restoration

Restoration is the process of restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
