Disinfecting surfaces using ULV fogger Give us a call at 770-387-7455 and ask us about our fogging disinfectant services.

The Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned (CSC) Standard Service is centered around limiting the survival and spread of emerging viral pathogens. SERVPRO of Bartow County is not aiming to replace your company's current cleaning crew or janitorial services, but rather working to supplement your current cleaning efforts. Our highly trained and certified technicians will apply EPA registered disinfectants to touch points described below. *This application of disinfection excludes inventory or retail merchandise. 

Step 1

Long before SERVPRO of Bartow County receives your call, we are preparing for the first step in the CSC program by completing an exhaustive training program and familiarizing ourselves with the disinfectants that will be utilized to disinfect your facility, like SERVPROXIDE Disinfectant, Benefect Botanical Disinfectant, and Sporicidin Disinfectant Solution to name a few. Our technicians will have specifically reviewed safety precautions and requirements related to the cleaning process, including protocols for any necessary personal protective equipment (PPE), application methods, and needed product dwell time to insure effective application.

Step 2

SERVPRO cleaning crews and trained technicians will don all the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) like gloves, tyvek suits and respirators to protect themselves during the cleaning process from pathogens like virus and bacteria that might be present. An N-95 respirator, disposable gloves, coveralls/gowns, and goggles are a minimum level of PPE. This level of PPE is sufficient when applying disinfectant with a saturated towel or a trigger sprayer and towel. Other application methods, such as utilizing a ULV mister or electrostatic sprayer, will require additional respiratory protection such as an air purifying respiratory (half-mask or full-face mask) with organic vapor (OV) cartridges

Step 3

SERVPRO will apply disinfectant to touch points. This can be accomplished with a towel saturated with disinfectant or a utilizing equipment to deliver disinfectant such as a trigger sprayers, pump sprayers, ULV misters, electrostatic sprayers, airless sprayers, foam applicators, or another equivalent effective dispersion technology. Our highly trained technicians will strictly follow product label directions to insure successful application and disinfection. Depending on the listed product dwell time and the application method, the disinfectant may be able to be applied once or it could require multiple treatments to keep the surfaces wet for the minimum time. We will carefully assess the surfaces to prevent the product from streaking or running while keeping the surface wet for the recommended contact time. 

  • Door knobs, pulls, and locks, as well as 1 square foot around the knob or pull, door jambs 
  • Push doors 
  • Stair handrails, elevator car and controls 
  • Light switches, switch covers, and accessible outlet covers 
  • Counter tops, tabletops, vanity tops, and desktops. Disinfect accessible surfaces without moving contents. Prevent over-spray and potential damage (i.e. paper products, electronic devices, personal property). 
  • Chairs. Avoid over wetting upholstered surfaces. Concentrate application on arms, backs, height/swivel controls. 
  • Faucets, sinks, soap dispenser, towel dispenser, dryer, water fountains, napkin dispenser 
  • Cabinet door and drawer exterior, door and drawer pulls/knobs 
  • Toilets, urinals, bathroom stalls around locks and handrails, handrails, bathroom fixtures (i.e. toilet paper dispenser), diaper changing stations, fitting room stalls around locks and handrails 
  • Telephones, computer equipment, shared office equipment, sales registers, point-of-sale equipment. 
  • Exterior of shelves, racking, displays, bookcases, file cabinets, lockers, or other fixtures. Disinfect accessible surfaces without moving contents. 
  • Operational/occupational equipment and controls (i.e. kitchen equipment, fitness equipment, laundry equipment).

Step 4

SERVPRO professionals will inspect the surfaces that have been disinfected. Wipe clean surfaces to eliminate product streaking and/or residues if needed. 

Step 5 

After step 4 technicians will perform end-of-visit cleanup. Once all work activities are complete, we will return all products, supplies, and tools to the work vehicle, bag all trash such as disposable towels and disposable PPE according to hazmat disposal procedures when necessary, and load bags into the work vehicle(s). Before leaving, walk through the work site one final time to ensure that the work site is clean and ready for your employees to return to the facility. 

Step 6 

Finally our technician will place a Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned window cling, complete with date of service, so that your employees and customers alike can rest easy knowing that your facility is Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

Cartersville Commercial Duct Cleaning Service

Commercial HVAC duct-work It's important to have your HVAC and duct-work serviced regularly to prevent poor indoor air quality!

One of the largest contributors to poor indoor air quality can be your air conditioning unit (HVAC) or ventilation system. HVAC systems must have specialized maintenance and regular cleaning regimen, especially in commercial applications. Dirty ducts can circulate odors, contaminants such as mold and bacteria, and irritating dust particles throughout your building. These odors and particles can affect the air quality your customers, employees, and even your own air quality. A regular part of SERVPRO of Bartow County’s inspection process is an inspection of the heating, ventilation, ducts, and HVAC systems. By observing regular duct cleaning and maintenance programs it will most likely extend the life-span of your HVAC system, by allowing it to operate at peak condition. This also helps save money, after all if your HVAC is working efficiently you will not have to spend as much money in operational cost, insures against downtime related to poor air quality, and prevents costly repair bills and damage caused by malfunctioning HVAC units. Duct cleaning may not always be necessary, but better safe than sorry.

Call SERVPRO of Bartow County for a duct cleaning estimate today!

After certain events like a fire loss, smoke damage, or microbial growth (mold) a thorough and complete duct cleaning is essential to the restoration process. If the system is not cleaned, particles and/or microbes will be spread throughout the building contaminating restored and non-affected areas. SERVPRO of Bartow County will clean your HVAC system and duct-work to pre-damage condition, and restore the air quality of your business. 

The SERVPRO® Duct Cleaning System is cost-efficient and proven process. Unlike the majority of duct cleaning services, SERVPRO of Bartow County uses a portable ventilation and air duct cleaning system to examine duct-work and makes a clean sweep, removing years of dust and grime.

The process begins by using patented equipment, including a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the duct’s shape and diameter while traveling through the duct, removing debris and filth before vacuuming begins. Next, a powerful push-pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from the ducting to a 16-gallon container. Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97 percent of the particles in the air-stream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the indoor environment clean. As an optional process, a sealant or coating product may be sprayed to address odor or microbial concerns. Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.

Choosing an Acworth Commercial Restoration Company

10/17/2019 (Permalink)

Fire damaged computer If you business suffers from water, fire, or mold damage, call SERVPRO of Bartow County (770)387-7455 today!

The commercial restoration industry is a very competitive industry, with many great restoration companies that can help your business restore and mitigate water, fire, mold, and other types of restoration projects. There are also some less than stellar restoration companies out there. One of the toughest parts of any restoration project is choosing a company that you can trust to complete the work quickly, cost effectively, and safely. SERVPRO of Bartow County has been an industry leader in both commercial and residential water, fire, and mold restoration, and wants to be your go-to restoration company in Bartow County. 

When choosing a restoration company to mitigate and restore your property, it is important to do some research and find a company you feel good about and have confidence in. One of the best ways you can research restoration companies is to visit reputable online review platforms like the Better Business Bureau (BBB), HomeAdvisor, or Yelp. You can even try visiting the company's Facebook page, check out how many Google Reviews they have, or even simply browse their website for before and after pictures of the work they have completed. Review platforms often award badges or accreditations to companies with great customer service. For example, the BBB website rates business based on customer experiences and identifies stellar companies with a “BBB Accredited Business” badge. Google has special ad placements for companies that are “Google Verified” and even offer customers financial guarantees and warranties on the work completed by the company that placed the Google Verified Ad. In case you were wondering, SERVPRO of Bartow County is both a Googles Verified Ads service provider, and an A+ Rated Accredited Business.  

Entering a simple search engine query to look for news articles or periodicals that might have mentioned the business is another way to research a restoration company. This is a good way of checking for major issues in a company's past, or might give you some information that puts the company in a good light like charitable deeds and community organizations that they’ve worked with or major restoration projects that they have undertaken. The query might return links or images of restoration projects they’ve worked on, or let you know if they are a preferred service provider to your insurance company. You can also find out how long the company has been in business. A company that has been around for several years and has a proven track record is almost always a good indicator of a reputable restoration company. The longer they’ve been in business, the better.

If you business suffers from water, fire, or mold damage, call SERVPRO of Bartow County (770) 387-7455 today!

In today's modern age there are countless ways to choose a reputable restoration company. SERVPRO of Bartow County realizes you have many options when it comes to restoration service providers and thanks you for considering us to be your go-to restoration company.

SERVPRO of Bartow County is Commercial Ready!

5/22/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Bartow County is ready for any size disaster!

While SERVPRO of Bartow County has been an industry leader in residential water restoration for decades, did you know that we have also provided the same high-quality services to our commercial clients?  Residential mitigation can involve complex issues, but commercial restoration projects can contain even more variety of complexities. The following topics are just a few of the items SERVPRO considers when performing commercial restoration or mitigation services.

Multiple Stakeholders – With commercial customers, authorizations and decisions can involve input and review by multiple individuals (e.g., property owner, tenant, property manager, insurance carrier, building consultant). SERVPRO of Bartow County has personal to coordinate with these individuals, bringing clarity and efficiently moving the restoration process forward on schedule and on budget.

Time Constraints – Time is money and you can’t buy back time. Businesses need to get back in business as quickly as possible. We often time hear, “How soon can I get my business back up and running?” SERVPRO of Bartow County can provide multiple drying plans, which will allow the business owner to choose the plan that fits their time constraints and budget the best. Together, we will come to an acceptable completion window. By giving business owners multiple drying plan options, we allow the business owner to choose the plan that is right for them.

Public Access and Security – During a commercial restoration or mitigation project, both public and occupant access may need to be limited or restricted. SERVPRO of Bartow County can work with on-site security or provide additional security measures to provide protection of the structure, contents, and restoration equipment.

Type or Amount of Contents – Commercial structures may house various types of textiles, goods, and equipment, even specialized manufacturing equipment. There may be raw materials and or finished goods that will need to be considered during the mitigation and restoration efforts. Some customers may have leased or rented equipment (requiring notification and authorization of leasing agent before relocating or servicing). Document cleaning and processing may also be needed in order to get the facility back up and running.

Safety Hazards - The potential for hazards within commercial structures is high. Commercial facilities can contain hazardous chemicals or materials (e.g., asbestos, lead), energized machinery, confined spaces, and high voltage. Restoration work may require equipment such as aerial work platforms, forklifts, and scaffolding, which create additional potential safety hazards.

Time and Materials Billing Requirements – Residential losses will rarely require a time and materials (T&M) quote/billing, but with every commercial project, SERVPRO of Bartow will compile T&M documentation. This better situates us to move forward with the restoration project because adjusters and insurance carriers often require this type of documentation. 

Commercial Construction Practices, Systems, and Codes – Commercial construction practices, systems, and codes can be difficult to understand, and compliance is often times mandatory. Buildings can contain both low voltage and high voltage electrical systems, power may be unavailable, partially available or limited to parts of the structure. Mechanical and HVAC systems may be highly advanced and require special treatment. Energy management systems (EMS) may affect the efficiency of restorative drying or deodorization.

*Local codes may differ from residential due to variances in size and function of the structure. These requirements must be identified to ensure compliance with each local area.

Life Safety Systems – Commercial structures are often outfitted with fire detection and fire suppression systems, alarm systems, emergency lighting, and emergency exits. SERVPRO of Bartow County is ready to oversee the completion of the entire process. From coordination and management of vendors/contractors, to restoring systems prior to re-occupancy.

These complexities can be difficult to manage, but they must be considered during the course of a commercial water, fire, or mold restoration project. SERVPRO of Bartow County is ready to manage these complexities and has the equipment and experience to make your commercial loss “Like it never even happened!”

Prevent Commercial Property Fire Loss In Acworth GA

10/17/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial fires often are the most devastating real estate that a property owner will have to oversee. In addition to wreaking havoc on your property, fires can force you to relocate temporarily so you can maintain running your business while the restoration process is completed. However, property owners who implement high-quality safety practices can often avoid the devastation and destruction that results from commercial fires. Read the brief outline provided below to learn how you can protect your property:

  • Install Automatic Fire Sprinklers

As many authorities know, having an automatic fire sprinkler on your property can reduce the risk of fire by up to 71%. Additionally, sprinklers can decrease your insurance premium. To keep your sprinkler in excellent condition, be sure that it is not blocked by dirt or paint. Also, be sure to inspect regularly your main control valve so that it is not left off. Finally, be sure that you take the precautions necessary to prevent the pipe from freezing.

Conduct Fire Emergency Training

Each of your employees should undergo fire safety training. The training can help prevent your staff members from being victimized. Here are a few subjects that should be covered in the emergency training:

  • Hazard Recognition - Keep all combustible chemicals and materials away from heat-generating and electrical equipment.
  • Prevention - Inspect your power sources regularly and don't overload your extension cords and outlets.
  • Response - Teach your employees how to respond when a fire breaks out. Some subjects that should be covered include how to perform an organized evacuation, operate the fire extinguisher, and set the fire alarm.

Other issues that should be involved in the training include:

  • Breathing Apparatus Training
  • Fire Extinguisher Training
  • Confined Space Entry Training
  • First Aid Training
  • General Staff Emergency Awareness Training
  • Evacuation Exercise

Also, be sure that your employee team officials undergo the following fire emergency response training:

Protect Your Cartersville Business From Storm Damage

9/14/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Bartow County is an approved vendor for most insurance companies - Give us a call if you suffer storm damages.

Protecting yourself today means having sources for information, preparing your business, developing an emergency communications plan, and knowing what to do when a flood is approaching your home or business. Taking action today can save lives and property.

Know Your Flood Risk

Learn whether you live, work, or travel through areas that are prone to flooding. To help communities understand their risk of flooding, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) creates flood maps (Flood Insurance Rate Maps, or FIRMs) to show the locations of high-risk, moderate-tolow risk, and undetermined risk areas. To check your flood risk, enter your address at flood_risks.jsp. According to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), more than 25 percent of all flood claims each year come from homes outside areas at high risk for flooding. To participate in the NFIP, local communities must adopt floodplain management regulations that meet or exceed its minimum requirements.

Know How To Stay Informed 

Receiving timely information about weather conditions or other emergency events can make all the difference in knowing when to take action to be safe.

  • Monitor the weather reports provided by your local news media.
  • Many communities have text or email alerting systems for emergency notifications. To find out what alerts are available in your area, do an Internet search with your town, city, or county name and the word “alerts.”
  • Consider buying a NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) All Hazards receiver, which receives broadcast alerts directly from NWS. You can purchase these at many retail outlets, such as electronics and big box stores, or online. Some NWR receivers are designed to work with external notification devices with visual and vibrating alerts for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. 
  • Think about how you will stay informed if there is a power outage. Have extra batteries for a battery-operated radio and your cell phone. Consider having a hand crank radio or cell phone charger.
  • You can use USGS’s WaterAlert system to receive texts or email messages when a stream in your area is rising to flood level. Know your evacuation routes; plan your transportation and a place to stay. The safest way to survive a flood is to evacuate the area if advised to leave. To ensure that you will be able to act quickly should the need arise, you need to plan ahead.
  • Know your community’s local flood evacuation plan and identify several escape routes for your location if roads are blocked; include plans to evacuate people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs, pets, service animals, and livestock.
  • If you will evacuate by car, keep your car fueled and in good condition. Keep emergency supplies and a change of clothes in your car.
  • If you will need to share transportation, make arrangements now. If you will need to use public transportation, including paratransit, contact your local government emergency management agency to ask how an evacuation will work, how you will get current information during an evacuation, the location of staging areas, and other information.
  • If you need to relocate for an extended period of time, identify a place away from home now where you could go if you had to leave. Consider family or friends who live outside of the local area.
  • If you expect to go to a shelter after evacuating, download the American Red Cross Shelter Finder app. This app displays open American Red Cross shelters and provides the capacity and current population of each shelter. Visit You can also text SHELTER + your ZIP code to 43362 (4FEMA) to find the nearest shelter in your area.
  • If you have pets and plan to go to a shelter, call to inquire whether the shelter can accommodate your pets. Shelters will accept service animals.

Basic Steps to Commercial Mold Restoration in Cartersville GA

5/25/2018 (Permalink)

Finding mold in in your commercial building doesn't have to ruin your business. Call SERVPRO of Bartow County (770) 387-7455

Do you run a business in Bartow County? Do you have a mold problem that you want to be remedied immediately but don’t have the slightest clue about what happens during remediation?

Like any other business owner or manager, you need accurate and reliable information to make important business decisions. If the answer to the above questions is yes, you should keep reading on below to learn what commercial mold restoration typically involves.

Why is Mold Remediation Necessary?

Mold growth can occur anywhere, be it indoors or outdoors. However, it thrives in areas with wet and humid environments.

For the most part, this fungus that grows outdoors does not present any significant problems for people and businesses. But when the growth occurs indoors, it becomes a major source of worry to building owners and the people that occupy the affected buildings.

Mold remediation is meant to restore normal levels inside a building.

What Happens During Commercial Remediation?

No two restoration situations are exactly the same, but the basics of mold remediation remain unchanged in all situations.

The basic steps to commercial remediation include the following:

1. Getting in Touch with Remediation Specialists

The process begins when you call the professionals working at a mold remediation company/service and inform them that you have a mold problem in your commercial building. They will arrive at your business location in the shortest time possible, prompt response to the problem is critical. 

Every business owner or manager needs to keep the emergency contact of a trusted remediation service with them all the time so they can immediately call for help when a problem arises.

2. Inspection and Testing

Upon arriving at your commercial premises, the remediation experts will carry out a thorough inspection of your building to identify areas that have been affected by mold damage.

The inspection involves identifying obvious signs of mold growth, like the presence of colored, fluffy growths on the walls, ceilings, floors and other surfaces of the building interiors. This is known as a visual mold assessment.

The inspection also involves performing a series of tests to see if spores are airborne, growing on various surfaces of the building interiors without showing any visible signs, or in settled dust.

There are many different techniques that can be used to detect infestation. Your mold remediation specialist will select the most appropriate testing methods for your specific situation.

3. Containment

Once the trouble areas have been identified and severity of damage ascertained, measures will be taken to contain the mold. The containment is meant to maximize protection and limit further damage to your property.

Mold produces spores, which can quickly spread into the air and contaminate it. In addition, it requires oxygen and moisture to thrive, so cutting off oxygen and moisture supply to infested areas is a critical part of containment.

4. Air Sanitization

This involves using an air purifier equipped with an air filter to remove spores that may linger in the air.

When exposed to a water or moisture source, the spores can quickly turn into colonies and cause a recurrence of mold problems.

There are many types of air filters that may be used in tandem with air purifiers, but HEPA filters are generally considered to be the most effective at the job.

5. Removal

Once spores have been completely removed from the air, the mold and the affected materials in your building will be the next to be removed.

This is a job that requires specialized handling and advanced equipment because mold growth can easily become airborne and settle on other surfaces if it not properly removed.

The process for removal varies from scenario to scenario, depending on the extent of infestation in your building.

Before getting started with mold removal, the water or moisture source causing the problem will need to be identified and remedied. Otherwise, mold growth and damage will continue even after it has been removed.

6. Cleanup

Cleanup involves cleaning various items and surfaces, such as wood furniture, walls, and floors that may be contaminated by mold.

The principal goal is to eliminate the growth that may still be lingering in your commercial space even after removal.

It is, however, important to point out that not all items in your commercial space may be restorable through cleaning service.

Absorbent belongings like carpets and upholstery furniture, for example, may need to be replaced.

Handle Your Cartersville Commercial Water Damage with SERVPRO of Bartow County

If you have recently become a victim of commercial water damage in Bartow County, you may be wondering what you can do to mitigate your damages. There is a critical period in which certain actions must be taken to preserve as much of your property as possible and to decrease any health risks when water damage has occurred in a commercial space. 

Preparing a Space for Water Damage Restoration

Before you enter your commercial space or any flooded building, you will need to make sure the electrical power to the structure is shut off. You should also be aware that during a flooding event, small animals or reptiles tend to seek shelter inside of buildings. Be prepared to deal with the discovery of wild animals in your space.

Protect yourself from entering any flooded building by wearing an organic vapor respirator. You can purchase these at any local paint and building supply stores. You also want to have rubber gloves, protective clothing, and eye protection. The first thing you should do is ventilate the affected areas by opening the windows and placing fans where possible.

Unfortunately, there likely will be items that you need to throw away. Any items that are porous and have absorbed contaminated floodwater cannot be restored. If your commercial space has drywall, mattresses, pillows, box springs, particle board, carpets or carpet pads, these will need to be discarded if they have become saturated. However, there is good news: If you have clothing or household fabrics that can be machine-washed, you may be able to salvage them. Use your washing machine to clean these items with a 10-minute soak at the minimum in hot water with detergent. The soap and normal wash should remove most of the contamination and any staining that is present.

Be aware that your commercial space will need a thorough professional inspection, cleaning and possibly restructuring. Water damaged walls and installations must be removed and repaired, and pockets of saturation should be exposed for drying and sanitizing. Always remember that mold growth could take a few days to appear as it thrives in a moist environment with organic-type materials such as paper or particle board and in temperatures that range between 60 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep good airflow throughout the interior environment, and maintain moderate temperatures to decrease the risk of any mold growth. It is also important that you let your space dry out before any rebuilding occurs.

SERVPRO of Bartow County are Commercial Drying Specialists

9/20/2017 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO of Bartow County for all of your commercial water drying needs! -(770) 387-7455-

Our SERVPRO Franchise has taken the IICRC Commercial Drying Specialist (CDS) class and has obtained special certifications to complete water mitigation in commercial buildings. Drying out a commercial building can be much different than performing a dry out service for a residential home. The materials a commercial building and residential home is built of can be completely different. The buildings are also used for different purposes.

The CDS course is a five day class and covers commercial, industrial, institutional and complex residential structures. The class teaches students to become skilled at performing damage inspections and evaluations. The class covers workflow management, process administration and technical methods of effective and timely drying of commercial, industrial, institutional and complex residential water damaged structures, systems and furniture.

Commercial drying projects often have additional potential hazards and safety risks than residential water mitigation projects. According to the IICRC, potential hazards include but are not limited to higher voltages, confined spaces, energized machinery, hazardous chemicals, heavy equipment and forklifts. In addition to this information, it is important that state and local laws for safety and contractor s are still followed.

If you are in need of having mitigation performed on a commercial or industrial building in the Cartersville area, make sure you utilize a company that has the knowledge to perform the services properly and effectively.

Do You Have Dirty Ducts?

5/25/2017 (Permalink)

Improve your indoor air quality with duct cleaning!

Did you know your ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality? In most cases, the HVAC system has been operating for some time without much attention. Dirty ducts can circulate odors, contaminants such as mold, and irritating dust throughout your building or home. A routine part of SERVPRO of Bartow County’s service is inspecting the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit (HVAC). Keeping the HVAC and ductwork clean can potentially extend the life-span of the equipment by allowing it to operate at peak condition, which may help save you money. Duct cleaning may not always be necessary.

In some circumstances, such as after a fire, smoke, or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the cleanup process. In these cases, SERVPRO of Bartow County can often restore the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage condition.

If you have a fuel-burning furnace, stove, or fireplace, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends they be inspected for proper functioning and be serviced before each heating season to protect against carbon monoxide poisoning.

The SERVPRO® Duct Cleaning System is proven and cost-efficient. Unlike the majority of duct cleaning services, SERVPRO of Bartow County uses a portable ventilation and air duct cleaning system to examine ductwork and make a clean sweep, removing years of dust and grime.

  • The process begins by using patented equipment, including a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the duct’s shape and diameter while traveling through the duct, removing debris and filth before vacuuming begins.  
  • Next, a powerful push-pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from the ducting to a 16-gallon container.
  • Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97 percent of the particles in the airstream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the indoor environment clean.
  • As an optional process, a sealant or coating product may be sprayed to address odor or microbial concerns.
  • Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.

Is your property winter ready?

12/16/2016 (Permalink)

Cold weather can have a huge impact on your home or business if you are not properly prepared. Whether it is heavy rain, freezing temperatures, damaging winds, sleet or snow, all can cause serious and costly property damage. While you cannot control the weather, you can take steps to prepare and help take the sting out of winter weather.

To help prevent costly damages due to weather, consider taking the following precautions to protect your property before colder weather hits.

  • Check your business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Weather, such as wind, heavy rain, ice and snow, can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property and potentially cause personal injuries.
  • Roofs, water pipes and gutters should all be inspected to ensure they are in proper order. Gutter downspouts should be directed away from your building. Clear gutters of debris that may have gathered during fall. Leaves and other obstructions can lead to a damming effect, that can lead to roof damage and interior water problems.
  • Inspect property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential.
  • Inspect all handrails, stairwells and entryways to address and correct potential slippery of hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present.
  • Protect water pipes from freezing by simply allowing water to drip when temperatures dip below freezing. If pipes are under a cabinet, leave the cabinet doors open allowing warm inside air to circulate around the pipes. If the building has outdoor faucets, concider shutting water off at the main valve in the basement or crawl space. Once the valve is off, open the outdoor faucet to ensure tit drains, preventing any remaining water from freezing in the pipe.
  • Ask SERVPRO of Bartow County -(770) 387-7455- about completing an Emergency READY Profile (ERP) for your business. The ERP is a no cost assessment to your facility, and provides you with a plan to get back in business fast following a disaster.

When winter weather strikes, call SERVPRO of Bartow County -(770) 387-7455- to strike back.

Quick Workspace Tips:

  • Divide Your Workspace Into Zones: Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions. You may require a workspace for your computer, a library area for our research, a storage area for supplies and a filing area for your archives. This will provide a foundation for a more efficient use of space.
  • Keep Only What You Need At Arm's Length: Boxes of pens, stacks of papers and old coffee cups need to go. Rid your desk of visual clutter by paring down the items on top to the essentials only. Supplies, paperwork and personal items should be kept in the zones you've established for them.
  • Sort Your Catch-All Drawer: Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, like compartments for paperclips and rubber bands. Go through the draw every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn't being used.
  • Eliminate Digital Clutter: Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter. Organize digital files and your e-mail inbox just as you would paper files-with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders. Also, keep the icons on your desktop to a bare minimum, and trade in sticky notes on your monitor for calendar reminders.
