Coffee's Ready!

9/11/2018 (Permalink)

Would you believe me if I told you that sprinkling used coffee grounds around the outside foundation of your commercial office buildings, helped prevent the infestation of mold on the inside? Well, it may help your hydrangeas, but it has no preventative powers against the onset of mold.

Mold thrives in moist, warm, and dark spaces.  In underground parking structures, behind walls, underneath sinks, in elevator shafts, to name but a few of the many hiding places for mold.  To prevent mold, ensure that your building is well sealed, windows are leak proof, elevator shafts are cleaned, and garages, as well as office spaces, are properly ventilated.

If, however, mold infestation does occur, protect your occupants and your investment, by calling your local mold certified SERVPRO professionals to assess the situation and provide you with a remediation plan.  Then sit back and enjoy your cup of coffee.

DOn't be Caught Off Guard, Call SERVPRO Today for Your Emergency Response Plan (ERP)

9/11/2018 (Permalink)

What is an Emergency Response Plan (ERP) and why does my business need one?  Having an ERP will greatly expedite any remediation work your building(s) will need in times of emergency. Getting to problems quickly and knowing the intricacies of the building will save time and mitigate damage.

An ERP plan provides both the building owner, property manager, and the SERVPRO team with the information each needs to expedite emergency services. With an ERP, your SERVPRO team has a building diagram on file which notes water shut-off valves, electrical panels, access points of entry and exit, locations of kitchen areas, bathrooms, office or apartment floor diagrams, what materials are in the building such as tile, carpet, drywall, acoustical ceiling tiles, etc. This knowledge allows for quick and efficient access and action when responding to emergency situations.  Also included in the ERP are names and contact information for both SERVPRO professionals as well as the building managers/owners. All parties are therefore not scrambling to locate the right person or find the correct phone number or email.  This information pertaining to key personnel on both sides is provided.  

Peace of mind for all involved may be the biggest asset of having an ERP.  As an ERP SERVPRO client, you are assured that your SERVPRO team will know who to contact, what to do, and where all the important touch-points are within the buildings.  

With storm season here and winter approaching, it's time to contact your local SERVPRO franchise to establish your ERP today.  It's free, easy to establish, and worth the peach of mind.
