SERVPRO’s Proprietary Disinfectant Available for Use by West Hartford Businesses

10/12/2021 (Permalink)

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned decal in window Customers now expect a higher level of cleanliness. Our SERVPROXIDE disinfect can help you get there.

When the COVID-19 pandemic took over so much of our everyday lives in 2020, SERVPRO was positioned to both survive and thrive in the “new normal.” We already possessed advanced-level expertise in deep cleaning and disinfecting, and we had the staff, equipment and products to help businesses all over the country respond to the need for a higher standard of clean. In response, we launched a new professional corporate pathogen cleaning service, Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

Among our weapons against pathogen contamination is our proprietary hospital-grade disinfectant, SERVPROXIDE™, which kills 99.999% of bacteria and viruses when used as directed. Because SERVPROXIDE is so effective and easy to use, we now offer it directly to corporate customers (through Amazon Business)—the first product we have chosen to sell since our founding more than fifty years ago.

But Isn’t the Pandemic Over?

Well … we’ll see about that. For now, it’s fair to say the answer is “to be determined.” But one important thing that will remain long after we have put COVID-19 behind us is the need for businesses to up their cleanliness game. In a 2020 Harris Poll, 71% of consumers expect businesses to be cleaner than their own homes!

With that in mind, savvy business owners will make it crystal clear to their customers that they take cleaning and sanitizing their facilities very seriously. (That’s one reason we include a “Cleaned with SERVPRO Disinfectants” window sticker with certain SERVPROXIDE purchases.)

Why Is SERVPROXIDE So Helpful to Businesses?

SERVPROXIDE is easy to use, yet kills a wide range of pathogens, disinfects hard surfaces, sanitizes soft surfaces and neutralizes odors on fabrics and carpets. It also boasts the EPA’s lowest toxicity rating and is NSF-rated for use on food contact surfaces with no rinse required.  

“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.”

If you do have a COVID-19 episode at your business, SERVPRO strongly recommends using a professional pathogen cleaning service to completely sanitize your facility.

Taking Customers’ Health Seriously

Danny Bruckert, owner/pizza maker for Groundlings Pizza Co., Brooklyn, NY, has this to say about SERVPROXIDE: “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.”

Safe Use of Your Generator After a Storm

10/12/2021 (Permalink)

A portable generator Using your portable generator safely after a storm can literally save your life. Follow SERVPRO's tips to stay out of trouble.

Going through a big storm or natural disaster—whether it’s a hurricane, tropical storm, tornado, blizzard or ice storm—is hard enough. Then there’s the aftermath, which all too often includes extended power outages. Unfortunately, those outages can end up being fatal for people when they don’t follow safe use guidelines for generators.

Last summer, for example, Hurricane Laura hit the state of Louisiana as a category 4 storm, with winds of up to 150 miles per hour. The ensuing storm surge was 15 feet high. After that kind of fury, hundreds of thousands of people lost power, and a number of people died from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by unsafe generator usage.

More Death After the Storm

As The New York Times reported in August 2020, “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.”

Use Your Generator Safely

The danger from portable generators lies in their exhaust: they produce colorless, odorless and tasteless carbon monoxide gas (CO). The National Institutes of Health reports that it only takes five minutes for enough carbon monoxide to build up inside a garage or home to sicken or even kill people.

The symptoms of CO poisoning are dizziness, fatigue, headaches and nausea. If anyone in your home experiences this, everyone in the home should go outside ASAP. Call 911 and stay outside until fire or police have checked your house for carbon monoxide.

If you’re shopping for a new generator, look for one with an automatic shut-off sensor to prevent dangerous levels of CO from building up.

SERVPRO recommends that you follow these generator use guidelines.

  • Never run your generator inside a garage, house or other enclosed space. Even a partially enclosed space can trap and concentrate CO, putting your health at risk.
  • Set up your generator at least 20 feet from your house. Leave 3 to 4 feet of clear space on all sides and above your generator for ventilation. Point the engine exhaust away from windows and doors.
  • Use a battery-operated carbon monoxide detector in your home whenever the generator is operating.
  • If it’s raining, protect the generator under a tent or canopy to allow for ventilation.

What If Your West Hartford Basement Floods After a Storm?

10/12/2021 (Permalink)

A soaked carpet in a basement If your basement floods after a storm, call SERVPRO of West Hartford for fast and complete water damage cleanup.

Many different kinds of storms can cause a flood in your basement. It could be an extended series of rainstorms that overwhelms drains and sump pumps. Perhaps it’s a hurricane that drops vast amounts of water all at once. Maybe it’s a winter cold snap that freezes and bursts a pipe in your basement. Or perhaps it’s a sudden thaw that sends water gushing toward your foundation.

Whatever the cause, flooding in your basement needs to be dealt with promptly to prevent further damage from the water, including the potential for a stubborn mold infestation. We’ve outlined the steps to take as soon as you know you have water in your basement—and although we include tips on how to dry out your basement and property, we strongly recommend that you at least have a professional water damage remediation company like SERVPRO of West Hartford evaluate your damage, if not handle the entire cleanup.

SERVPRO will approach your flooding using our organized, time-tested method that prevents damage down the road. We respond 24/7 to your emergency, stop the water damage, check for signs of structural damage, take precise moisture measurements, pump and dry out all the water and moisture, and evaluate, treat and restore your affected personal items, furniture and home. We also help coordinate and expedite your homeowners insurance claim!

First Things First

These are the essential first steps to take when there’s water in your basement.

  • Be quick: Your goal is to minimize the damage, so begin cleanup quickly. If it’s a widespread storm or flood, many others in the area will be contacting water damage professionals, too, so don’t hesitate to call for help ASAP.
  • Be careful: Safety comes first, so begin by shutting off the electricity to the basement—if you can’t reach your electric panel, hire an electrician to come out and shut it off. Be cautious when walking in your basement: put on protective gear, such as gloves and boots, a perhaps a mask and goggles. Watch your balance on the slippery floor.
  • Cut off the water: If you have a burst pipe, turn off the house’s water at the main valve.

Removing Water and Drying Out

Try to get all the moisture out of your basement and possessions within 48 hours.

  • Remove the water: Focus first on getting the water out with a sump pump, a wet/dry vac or a mop and bucket. Check your floor drain (if you have one) to be sure it’s clear.
  • Dry things out: Try to get everything dried out within 48 hours to prevent the possibility of mold. Drag your wet furniture and possessions from the basement either to another area of the home or outside.
  • Goodbye, carpet, drywall and insulation: Almost always, you’ll have to rip up and toss out your carpeting, pad and other flooring—and any wet or damaged drywall and insulation.
  • Dry out the basement: The standing water may be gone, but there’s still moisture in your structure, furnishings and possessions. Open all the windows and doors and run fans and dehumidifiers for at least several days.
  • Clean and sanitize: Finally, wash everything—walls, floor, furniture, possessions—with a strong disinfectant to prevent mold growth.

Call SERVPRO of West Hartford for Biohazard Cleanup

9/29/2021 (Permalink)

Work shoes covered by sludge Biohazard emergencies at your place of business can happen at any time. Call SERVPRO to quickly and thoroughly remediate the hazardous mess.

If your West Hartford-area business is hit by a biohazard emergency—a sewage leak, a chemical spill, a bloody accident or crime or worse—you know right away you are dealing with a mess that requires a skilled professional team to quickly and completely clean up, dry, disinfect and deodorize your building, furnishings and property.

Unfortunately, you’re also facing a risk to your health, as well as those who work for you or visit your business. If your emergency is a bloody accident or crime scene, know that the blood, body fluids and other contaminants may pose a serious health risk to you and your employees. And sewage backups create a foul mess that may harbor dangerous bacteria and viruses. 

Time is of the essence, so you also need reliable experts to get to work fast—and they must adhere to all pertinent OSHA safety and health regulations.

SERVPRO of West Hartford is the right call after a biohazard emergency at your business facility. Our crews have gone through intense biohazard-specific training; we have established procedures for dealing with the most dangerous substances; and we have the equipment and products to protect ourselves and thoroughly clean your facility.

Biohazard Cleanup is Different

SERVPRO teams are skilled at cleaning up these and other types of biohazard emergency:

  • Sewage backup
  • Chemical spills
  • Accidental deaths, suicides and homicides
  • Bloody accidents
  • Crime scenes
  • Drug labs
  • Animal waste and/or remains
  • Hoarding situations

Because a biohazard emergency can happen with no notice, SERVPRO is available to respond quickly to your situation at any time, around the clock.

While you need a professional biohazard remediation company to handle the cleanup, there are important steps you can take when you first discover the biohazard situation. We have prepared a list of biohazard emergency tips to follow that will help you minimize damage to your facility while protecting the health of everyone on the scene.

Finally, beyond the technical issues involved in cleaning up a biohazard mess, we at SERVPRO of West Hartford understand that even more is involved: accident, death and crime scenes, in particular, are highly emotional for you and your employees. Your SERVPRO crew will treat everyone involved with the respect and empathy you deserve.

Our Results

The photo above shows the “after” view of a completely gutted and rebuilt kitchen after a fire, which started in the kitchen of a two-family home in East Hartford and almost completely destroyed the building. Our cleanup was complicated by the residue left by the use of a fire extinguisher, but we determined that much of the damaged structure and possessions were actually salvageable.

This particular homeowner decided to remodel their kitchen as part of the restoration, and installed new cabinet fronts, countertops and appliances.

Water in Your West Hartford House? We’ll Remove It ALL

8/17/2021 (Permalink)

Water leaking from a burst pipe Who to trust in a water emergency? SERVPRO of West Hartford knows how to remove ALL the water in your home, preventing problems down the road.

Many water cleanup companies will tell you they are experts. It can be hard to know who to trust, especially when you have a flood or severe leak underway at your West Hartford house, and you need to get help fast! One way to determine if you can rely on a company is to learn about how they approach the often-tricky task of completely removing all the moisture from your home after a water emergency.

The reason this is important is that there’s more water than meets the eye. So, in addition to the visible water on the floor, there is also hidden water and moisture lurking inside your floors, floor coverings, walls, furnishings and possessions. These all must be completely dried out, or you may end up with damage to your home’s structure, odors that linger and an active mold infestation.

So, why is SERVPRO of West Hartford the company to call when you need complete water damage remediation? It’s because we bring the right people, tools and experience to do the job the right way and completely remove all the water from your home and property.

First, Remove the Water

SERVPRO responds to your water emergency with truck-mounted wet/dry vacuums and pumps, which we use to rapidly remove most of the water from your home—and that can be up to hundreds or thousands of gallons!

To be sure that the water is removed completely, we use tools and equipment such as:

  • Infrared cameras to seek out water hiding behind walls and in ceilings
  • Moisture detectors, hygrometers and other meters to measure the level of water saturation

Removing all the standing water makes the next phase, drying and dehumidifying, go more quickly. 

Next, Dry Everything Out

SERVPRO’s industrial-quality water extraction equipment removes most but not all of the moisture in your soaked floors, drywall and walls. These porous building materials hold onto water, so if they are not completely dried out, they may swell, warp and degrade—or become a host site for mold.

We determine the numbers of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home by measuring square footage, temperature and humidity levels. Then we use our industrial-grade dehumidifiers and high-speed air movers to speed up the evaporation of moisture. As we work, we monitor our progress with moisture meters.

While all this is going on at your home, SERVPRO dries, cleans and deodorizes your water-damaged furnishings and personal possessions. Finally, when everything is fully dried out and dehumidified, we restore it all to your house.
