Emergency Fire Damage Restoration Process

1/13/2021 (Permalink)

Did you know that every 18 seconds a fire occurs in the United States? If this happens to you, even a small kitchen fire, we will be there to restore your household.

Emergency Fire Damage Restoration Process:

  1. A SERVPRO franchise professional will contact you within one hour to arrange for service.
    • We understand the importance of letting you know help is on the way, right away.
  2. Within four hours, a trained professional will arrive on-site prepared to begin emergency mitigation services, if necessary.
    • A timely response is key to preventing further damage.
    • Timely mitigation can mean the difference between restoring the property and replacing it.
  3. The loss site will be reviewed with you, and your questions and concerns will be addressed. A SERVPRO Franchise professional will:
    • Identify the source of loss.
    • Identify the source of your concerns.
    • Identify the types of residue present.
    • Identify safety issues.
  4. A SERVPRO Franchise Professional will begin pretesting for restorability. By Pretesting, four key questions are answered:
    • What is unable to be restored?
    • What is restorable and what methods of restoration will be most effective?
    • What areas and items are unaffected?
    • What areas need to be reviewed by the Adjuster or Property owner?
  5. The scope of the project will be communicated to you or your adjuster if a claim has been filed. If so, your adjuster will receive a verbal briefing within eight business hours.
  6. The structure and contents will be cleaned and restored by SERVPRO Franchise Professionals.
  7. After the work has been completed, a final walk-through will be conducted with you to help ensure your satisfaction.

Here at SERVPRO, we understand the trauma of fire disasters and as a leader in fire and water cleanup and restoration, our number one goal is returning damage to its preloss condition, doing all we can to make it “Like it never even happened.”

We Can Clean Your Business's Carpets and Upholstery

1/8/2021 (Permalink)

Your business or office space is sure to have lots of traffic in and out of it every day. It can also be one of the first things that customers see when they walk in. You want to make a good impression on them, and having a dirty carpet is not going to do that. A clean carpet will make your office stand out above the others, SERVPRO of Tifton is here to help you achieve that. 

Preventative Maintenance

Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.

IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.

Preventative maintenance actions include: 

  • Regular vacuuming
  • Spot removal
  • Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
  • Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
  • Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet

Add Carpet Cleaning to your regular maintenance schedule

Carpet that is well cared for and receives regular maintenance will last much longer, saving you money. Customers will feel more comfortable in an office or business that looks well cared for. 

SERVPRO of Tifton is here to help your business look it's best! Call today to schedule services at 229-388-8837.

Conditions In Tifton, Nashville or Adel Might Be Right For Mold

9/8/2020 (Permalink)

It’s estimated that more than 1 million types of mold exist, yet less than 10 percent have actually been named. This means mold is very common in both indoor and outdoor environments. While mold and humans can sometimes co-exist without issue, there are certain species of mold that can cause health effects for some people.

If the right conditions exist, mold will grow.  Those conditions include:

  • Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.   
  • Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
  • Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.

Mold growth can occur in any home or business, so it’s important to keep an eye out for situations that might promote mold activity. Roof/chimney leaks, wet basements, crawlspaces, or foundations, or condensation from ducts that dampen surrounding insulation are just a few examples of issues that make a building a prime target for mold growth.

If you suspect mold in your home or business, call SERVPRO of Tifton to assess the situation. We have the knowledge, tools and track record to effectively remediate mold in your home or business.

If you suspect mold, call us today at 229-388-8837.

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Tifton for mold remediation services.
