SERVPRO Of Metrocrest Able to Clean and Disinfect School Viruses

3/2/2016 (Permalink)

The CDC has posted the information on the attached link regarding the seasonal influenza occurring at our schools recently. SERVPRO of Metrocrest can address this issue, as well as others, with the cleaning products we use. Our disinfectants are EPA, FDA and OSHA compliant, have a very low toxicity rating, and are effective against the most common disease and odor-causing organisms, including MRSA, HIV-1 (AIDS virus), Influenza A2, Avian Flu, VRE, TB, Herpes, and many others.

Differences between cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing

  1. Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
  2. Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.
  3. Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This process works by either cleaning or disinfecting surfaces or objects to lower the risk of spreading infection.

SERVPRO of Metrocrest, based in Dallas, Texas can address these issues in an educational environment, business environment, or any other setting where many are working in close contact with others.  SERVPRO can clean and disinfect the surroundings to prevent the spread of these viruses.

Please call our office at (972) 233-8400 to schedule an assessment of your situation.

SERVPRO Signs On as National Sponsor for American Red Cross Ready Rating Program

1/14/2014 (Permalink)

Local disaster recovery professionals encourage property owners to incorporate free “Ready Rating” program into their emergency planning

SERVPRO®, a disaster recovery and cleanup Franchise System, has signed on as a national sponsor of the American Red Cross Ready Rating program, a free, self-guided program designed to help businesses, organizations and schools become better prepared for emergencies.

This partnership just makes perfect sense, and truly completes the readiness equation for businesses and other property owners in the area. The American Red Cross Ready Rating Program allows individuals to assess their readiness for a disaster, so they can take all necessary steps before disaster strikes to protect their property from damage and loss. But, when disaster does strike, knowing what to do and who to call saves time – and fast response is key to minimizing damage and downtime. That’s where SERVPRO’s Emergency READY Program can help. Together, these two programs offer maximum peace of mind to businesses and other organizations.”

“Through the generosity of SERVPRO, the Red Cross will be empowering workplaces to re-open more quickly after natural or man-made disasters such as water main breaks, medical emergencies, power outages, tornados, floods and hurricanes through the Ready Rating Program,” said Tom Heneghan, Manager of Business Continuity Programs, American Red Cross.

“Up to 40% of businesses never re-open their doors after such disasters; SERVPRO’s partnership will enable more businesses, schools and organizations to become better prepared. We are excited to have SERVPRO join us in community outreach efforts to educate and highlight the importance of community preparedness in neighborhoods across the country.”

With the approaching spring season comes the threat of severe weather – such as high winds, downpours, flash flooding, fires caused by lightning strikes and even tornadoes spawned by thunderstorms – SERVPRO® urges all property owners to visit the American Red Cross Ready Rating website now at http://readyrating.org to complete a 123-point self-assessment of their level of preparedness for weather-related or other emergencies. Aligned with the federal government's Private Sector Preparedness standards, the Ready Rating assessment offers businesses, organizations and schools access to tools, tips and best practices to help improve their level of preparedness.

Keys to the program are the following Five Essential Steps to Preparedness – the cornerstones of the Ready Rating program:

1. Commit to Preparedness

2. Conduct a Hazard Vulnerability Assessment

3. Develop an Emergency Response Plan

4. Implement your Emergency Response Plan

5. Help Your Community Get Prepared

The time to prepare for a disaster is before it happens. Taking steps to make your property as secure as possible, then having a plan to deal with the aftermath if disaster does strike is just good business and common sense. At SERVPRO, we can help you create a disaster recovery plan now, specific to your facility so that – if you need us – we can help you get back in business fast.”

SERVPRO® specializes in disaster restoration, cleanup and repair services, helping to remediate damage, making it “Like it never even happened,” for both commercial and residential customers.
