Tips and Best Practices to Minimize Your Risk

Cities and states are taking increasingly drastic measures to curb the severity of the pandemic, including the closing of bars, restaurants, and public venues. In some areas, officials have issued “shelter in place” orders in order to compel residents to stay in their homes and limit movement. To further protect yourself, minimize your exposure with the following tips:

Practice Good Hygiene

  • Clean hands with sanitizer and wash your hands frequently
  • Avoid touching your face and cover coughs and sneezes
  • Disinfect “high touch” surfaces like doorknobs, light switches, tables, doorknobs, and handrails regularly
  • Increase ventilation by opening windows or adjusting air conditioning

At The Office

  • Stop shaking hands – use other non-contact methods of greeting
  • Use videoconferencing for meetings when possible
  • When not possible, hold meetings in open, well-ventilated spaces
  • Disinfect “high touch” surfaces like desks, keyboards, light switches, doorknobs, and telephones
  • Consider adjusting or postponing large meetings or gatherings

Stay Home if...

  • You are feeling sick
  • You have a sick family member in their home

This opportunity is designed to encourage bringing out ones inner hero by promoting donating to the organization, giving blood, taking an educational class, or even volunteering opportunities.

Does Bleach Kill Mold?

2/18/2020 (Permalink)

Clorox Bleach is a very well known bleach and has several uses through out a household. Listed below are some facts about the bleach to better understand its uses. 

  • Clorox Bleach is more useful for killing bacteria and viruses than for killing molds, parasites, and spores. The bleach kills the kinds of microorganisms found in sewer water, but it is not as lethal to any kind of microbe that travels through air.
  • Clorox Bleach doesn't kill mold effectively at temperatures below 52 degrees F. Some species of mold, however, continue to grow even when the temperature is slightly below freezing.
  • By the time you have black, inky blobs of mold, it's too late for Clorox. The active chemical in bleach does not break up the bio-film that glues mold into patches.
  • Mixing Clorox with contaminated water greatly reduces its effectiveness for disinfecting walls, floors, and household surfaces. Any kind of formerly living matter in water can bind to Clorox so it can't disinfect anything else. It's important to mix Clorox with clean water.
  • Clorox is more effective for disinfecting indoor surfaces than for disinfecting outdoor surfaces. Sunlight breaks down the active chemical that kills bacteria, viruses, and mold. 

Emergency Supply Kit

2/17/2020 (Permalink)

In the event that a storm has occurred and your home has lost power, it is important to have a basic emergency supply kit that can be made quickly. It is vital to be prepared and have your own food, water, and additional supplies in enough quantity to last for at least 72 hours.

Kit:

  1. A three day supply of non-perishable food items.
  2. A gallon of water per person per day for drinking and sanitation purposes (overall amount depends on how many people are in the home).
  3. A flashlight or two with extra batteries.
  4. Backup battery packs for electronics or cellphones.
  5. Extra blankets and clothing to fit the weather’s needs.
  6. A first aid kit.
  7. Fun games and activities to keep your time occupied until the power is back on.

The History Behind SERVPRO

2/11/2020 (Permalink)

In the beginning of 1967, SERVPRO was started as a painting and contracting type business where they first established the recognizable green and orange logos. Around 1969 SERVPRO then launched into franchising as a cleaning business. Years later in 1980, SERVPRO received its first ranking in the Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500, coming in at #103. With keeping their business in mind in 1988, SERVPRO relocated its corporate headquarters from Sacramento, California to Gallatin, Tennessee to place itself within 600 miles of 50 percent of the United States population. At the time of the relocation, SERVPRO consisted of 647 franchises. By the year 2003, SERVPRO began its streak with being ranked #1 in the Restoration Services category and years later in 2017 SERVPRO celebrated its 50th anniversary as a company. At this point in time, SERVPRO has over 1500 franchises in the United States and Canada that provide exponential service. Here at SERVPRO of The Main Line we specialize in cleanup and restoration services to make your fire, smoke, water, or mold damage “Like it never even happened.”

How to Prepare your Home for Storms

2/10/2020 (Permalink)

Getting your home prepared before a heavy rain storm or for the potential hurricane/ tropical storm is important for all homeowners to do. In the case of a storm, heavy rains can cause flooding and heavy winds can cause branches to break off trees or for objects outside a home such as furniture or flower pots to move around and cause damage to the property.

Prepare your home:

  1. Check your roof regularly to make sure that there are no loose shingles or leaks to ensure that it is in good condition.
  2. It is important to keep your homes gutters, downspouts, and drains free and clear of leaves and debris.
  3. Be sure to remove branches that are close to the home.
  4. Loose items around the home such as furniture, plant pots, or decorations need to be secured safely or brought inside.
