Keeping Your Workplace Safe and Healthy

3/31/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Here to Help Call SERVPRO of Metrocrest to schedule your cleaning (972) 233-8400.

Time is money in the workplace. Both employers and employees cannot afford lost work time due to sickness.

Workplace Specific Health Strategies

What can employers do to promote a healthy work environment in light of COVID-19 or any other infectious diseases?

A simple and efficient path to promote workplace health includes the following items:

  1. Encourage hand washing with real soap for at least 20 seconds.
  2. Put hand sanitizer in numerous stations around the office or facility.
  3. Provide disinfectant wipes for employees to wipe down surfaces such as keyboards, mouse, desk, chair, pens, stylus, pencils, touch screens, etc.
  4. Allow employees to wear disposable gloves.
  5. Remind employees of the company's sick policy. Sharing COVID-19 or Influenza with workspace mates or the production crew could be very costly to all involved parties.
  6. Coordinate with the facility cleaning team regarding special measures to be taken during flu season or during periods of significant employee sickness.

These measures are very basic yet they go a long way to keep the workplace healthy and happy.

When is the right time to call in a professional cleaning service to clean, disinfect, and sanitize the workplace?

Seeking consultation and assistance from a highly trained, well-informed, and experienced cleaning professional to address workplace health and hygiene is both proactive and pre-emptive. Losing multiple teams or crew members to an outbreak of an infectious disease for a week or two could crush production efficiencies. An office or sales force outbreak could slow or halt sales generation and depress a revenue cycle. The cost of an absentee employee is so much more than paid sick leave.

Qualified cleaning professional like SERVPRO of Metrocrest can provide prevention strategies for a business as well as for a school, daycare or church. People recognize SERVPRO as the industry leader for water and fire damage restoration and disaster recovery.

fire soot on content If your home suffers a fire loss, please call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

The fire is put out, now what? After you have called 911 and the firefighters have come put out the fire in your home, while the immediate danger has passed, the fire will continue to damage the home if professionals of SERVPRO of Metrocrest are not called in.  

If ash and smoke is left unhindered it will cause extensive corrosion, etching and discoloration, not to mention lingering odors.  According to the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification), it takes just minutes after a fire for soot residue to settle onto the property.  Discoloration of porous materials is permanent but other surfaces can be cleaned to remove the damage.  Within hours all surfaces begin to suffer from fire and smoke damage.  Wooden furniture may require refinishing, metals begins to rust and corrode, and painted walls begin to yellow.  In addition, some clothing can be permanently stained, and your flooring could end up requiring you to refinish or replace it.  If left untreated, within weeks the restoration process will take longer and cost you more.  The prolonged soot exposure can ruin some of your belongings and is also not good for you and your family’s health.

SERVPRO of Metrocrest is here to help you with all of your fire damage needs.  Our trained technicians are available 24/7 and have the cleaning and restoration experience to quickly restore your home to pre-fire condition.

the after effects of a kitchen fire Call SERVPRO of Metrocest for your fire mitigation needs (972) 233-8400.

Damages found in your home after a fire, can go far beyond what you might expect. Regardless of the size of the fire that you experience, smoke, soot, and ash often affect more than the immediate area around the source of a fire. 
  
Restoration cleaning professionals often use a variety of cleaning methods to treat a fire damaged home. It takes quality training, specialized equipment, and years of experience to perform the necessary services. You should expect nothing less than high-quality, exceptional service from a company performing restoration services on your property. 
  
SERVPRO of Metrocrest has IICRC certified technicians who go to work immediately mitigating damage and preventing losses after a fire disaster occurs. We pay specific attention to structural components, contents, and personal belongings, along with any items attached to the structure itself. 
  
Cabinets often have a finished surface that adds a small amount of protection. However, the inside of the doors and interior of each drawer usually consist of raw materials that can absorb residues, causing extensive damage that requires specific attention. 
  
  
When SERVPRO of Metrocrest begins cleaning windows affected by the fire, it involves the entire framework and any hardware, not just the glass. Drapery, pictures, and other wall-mounted contents also involve different cleaning methods, especially on items made of different materials, including wood, metal, or plastic. 
  
A fire that started in your kitchen may end up in your attic. Any raw structural timber exposed to water or fire damage might need replacement, rather than restoration, due to the costs involved. Same goes for any insulation damaged during a fire; in almost every situation, it is far less expensive to replace insulation than it is to attempt restoration.

What Happens During Mold Remediation

3/12/2020 (Permalink)

Mold growth in a closet If you need mold remediation in your home, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400. https://www.SERVPROmetrocrest.com/mold-remediation

Discovering a mold problem is an unwelcome situation for any property owner.
If you are concerned about household mold, a Mold Assessment Consultant
will be able to provide you with mold indoor air quality testing to determine
the extent of the issue. Once your mold inspection has been completed,
call SERVPRO of Metrocrest and we will be ready to start the mold remediation services immediately. A highly rated company like SERVPRO of Metrocrest will be able to perform your mold remediation services in a timely and effective manner. If you are preparing for a mold removal procedure in your home, here is a look at what you can expect during mold remediation.

Initial Assessment

Each mold remediation procedure begins with an initial assessment from a Mold Assessment Consultant. The Consultant has specialized training for detecting mold spores in your indoor air. After the air quality test has been completed, you will receive a set of written instructions for your mold removal protocol. This protocol will provide guidelines for your mold remediation company to follow.

Mold Removal

After the initial assessment and written protocol have been completed,
your home will be ready for the mold removal process. A technician will
set up barriers throughout your home so that mold spores do not spread.
Next, any affected porous surfaces will be removed. For example, your
drywall, carpet, carpet padding, and insulation may all need to be taken
out. Once the removal has been completed, the technician will clean and
sanitize all surfaces, and apply an anti-fungal paint where needed.

Air Scrubbing and Clearance Testing

The final steps of mold remediation are air scrubbing and clearance testing.
Once all of the contaminated materials have been removed, your technician
will use air scrubbers to reduce the mold spores to a healthy level for
your indoor air. After this procedure has been completed, your Mold Assessment
Consultant will return to perform a final clearance testing for your home.
The final step is for your Consultant to sign a document certifying that
your mold remediation has been completed successfully.

If you need mold remediation call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

Mold growth in the winter months

3/12/2020 (Permalink)

Mold growth on a fireplace Call SERVPRO of Metrocrest to help with your mold remediation (972) 233-8400.

The wet season in the winter months is one of the best times of year for molds to grow and expand. Often mold is contained near sources of water where it can easily grow and reproduce. As it grows, mold can breakdown and compromise the integrity and strength of the source in which it lives.

Mold spores are microscopic and are naturally found in the air we breathe indoors and outdoors. When large amounts of spores grow, one’s health may be compromised. Mold can be killed, but if it is not removed properly, it can remain in the area just cleaned and the dry spores can be released into the air. Mold remediation services can help eliminate the mold in your home and personal items affected by water damage.

If you require mold remediation services in your home or business give SERVPRO of Metrocrest a call! (972) 233-8400. We will return your home or business back to “Like it never even happened.”
