Have you gotten your ducts cleaned recently?

8/28/2018 (Permalink)

Sometimes we only think of HVAC cleanings for our own home. We want to keep our family happy and healthy. So, why not extend the same services to our customers. Dirty ducts can circulate mold, odor, and other contaminants throughout the building. Here are some concrete reasons why cleaning those ducts is the best way to go: 

Allergies- We all carry allergies through our lives. Flowers, grass, and other natural things in nature flare up our stuffy noses. Dust is another contaminant that can flare our allergies up which is why cleaning those ducts helps prevent those in our customers, employees, and our own selves.

Pets- We all love our four legged friends, but they shed. And, where does that hair go?                  It can head straight to our air ducts. 

Efficiency- During the drastic weather months of cold and hot, we want our ducts to run smoothly and efficiently. Did you know that getting your ducts cleaned can save you money, because like everything else, it works better when it's cleaned out.

We want the best possible service for our customers and calling SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties to clean your ducts is a great place to start!

Commercial What Do You Need When Your Commercial Property has Fire Damage? A before/ after of a Dry Ice Blasting damage to a hotel.

Commercial Property owners of London, Somerset, Corbin, and Science Hill: if you have fire damages to your property you should call SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties to Dry Ice Blast the damage. 

Here are 5 benefits of having SERVPRO Dry Ice Blast for your commercial property: 

  1. A Dry Cleaning Process: It is a completely dry process because the dry ice pellets consist of CO2 and vaporize immediately on contact to clean the surface of the fire damage. 
  2. No Waste Disposal: This system produces no waste product with no hazardous chemicals used, so only the coating that has been removed needs to be disposed of, and can be swept or vacuumed from the floor.
  3. Environmentally Friendly: Dry Ice Blasting is completely non-toxic and cuts costs connected with disposal of products.
  4. No Abrasion: This process is non-abrasive, so it treats surfaces gently. There is no wear and tear from steel brushes, scrapers, or other blasting materials. 
  5. Improved Production Quality: Dry Ice Blasting often allows for your production equipment to be cleaned while in operation --cutting cost of downtime.

SERVPRO has come full circle –the grocery store effect.

10/3/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial SERVPRO has come full circle –the grocery store effect. A look at our Commercial fire damage at the Kroger in Somerset, Kentucky. We cleaned and removed smoke and soot damaged items and areas.

On a recent trip to Birmingham, our marketing team got to meet with Stan Richardson. Stan spoke of SERVPRO’s first ever commercial job. A grocery store in their previous placement in Alabama had caught fire and needed remediation fast. Stan and the SERVPRO team had never done commercial work before so it was a completely new experience. Stan got a team together, and they cleaned the fire up within ten days of the initial first notice of loss.

Now, fast forward more than twenty years later, and SERVPRO completes some of the biggest commercial jobs in the restoration field. We travel far and wide sometimes for commercial work, but we are most proud when we can help our local communities. SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties partnered with another local SERVPRO and completed a fire job in Somerset, Kentucky recently. And, what are the odds, it was a grocery store. SERVPRO has come a long way from the first commercial job, but the motto has always been the same. Whether it’s Somerset, London, or even Birmingham, Alabama; we are here to make your disasters “Like it never even happened.”  

From the Bluegrass to Birmingham –the Pulaski and Laurel Counties girls headed South!

On August 28th, one of our owners –Julie Roberts, and part of our marketing team --Ashley Kovaleski and Kelsey White went to SERVPRO of Birmingham, Alabama. The girls traveled over seven hours to reach one of the most historic SERVPRO’s in the U.S.

SERVPRO® of Birmingham began 33 years ago with nothing more than a green clean dream!  David Wilson and his team started their SERVPRO from the ground up in Tallahassee, and are still serving Alabama today! While the girls were at SERVPRO® of Birmingham, they trained with some of the top professionals in their field.

While at SERVPRO® of Birmingham, they even got to meet the first SERVPRO Marketing Representative, Stan Richardson, who started with this team from the beginning. He told them about his first commercial job, and how it changed the industry as we know it. A local grocery store had caught fire and while they had never done a commercial property before they took the opportunity to help in their community. They got the job completed in ten days, and thus began the commercial side of SERVPRO.

The SERVPRO experience is unique to say the least, but being around a group of professionals who have the same passion about helping others through disaster is one that cannot be replicated. No matter what state you’re in, SERVPRO strives to make your disasters “Like it never even happened.”

National Preparedness Month Focuses Home and Business Owners on Advance Planning for Disaster Recovery

Commercial National Preparedness Month Focuses Home and Business Owners on Advance Planning for Disaster Recovery Check out our Ready Plan website at ready.servpro.com, or call our office to have a Servpro Representative come to your property to help set up a plan

SERVPRO offers property owners no-cost tools for preparing a disaster readiness Plan

London, KY- (Grassroots Newswire) 9-12-16  Each September, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sponsors an awareness eventNational Preparedness Month (http://www.ready.gov/September)to encourage both home and business owners to review and update their emergency preparedness and business and life continuity plans. Julie Roberts, owner of SERVPRO® of Pulaski & Laurel Counties, encourages London, Somerset, and Corbin property owners to take advantage of the information available from FEMA, because advance planning is critical in dealing with and recovering from the unexpected.

“Most home and business owners have taken basic precautions to protect life and property in the event of an emergency like flooding, fire, wind damage, or even malicious attacks,” said Roberts. “In many cases, building codes require clearly marked emergency exits, fire extinguishers, fire and flood drills, and similar preparations. But the missing link for many property owners is a comprehensive emergency plan that provides first responders with the information they need to deal with the emergency quickly and effectively, like the location of shut-off valves, fire suppression system controls, and emergency contact numbers.”

SERVPRO offers tools for both commercial and residential property owners to help address this problem. Business and home owners alike can download the free SERVPRO READY app, and store time-critical contact and property information electronically, in advance, where it can be accessed with a mobile device in seconds if disaster strikes. In addition, when a business designates their local SERVPRO Franchise Professional as their disaster mitigation and restoration provider, SERVPRO professionals will conduct a no-cost assessment of the facility and assist the owner in completing a comprehensive Emergency READY Profile® (ERP). The ERP includes information about emergency contact numbers, priority and high/risk areas, shut-off valve locations and more that can then be stored in the READY app.

“The most effective response to any emergency is a fast response,” says Roberts, “and that means having critical information available and ready to access at a moment’s notice. FEMA statistics* show that as many as 40 percent of businesses never reopen after a major flood disaster. Minimizing downtime and repairs with a quick, effective response effort can help prevent this type of outcome for businesses and can also help families put their homes and lives back on track in less time and with less stress. Creating a READY profile in advance with SERVPRO’s no-cost tools is well worth the time.”

SERVPRO® of Pulaski & Laurel Counties specializes in disaster restoration, cleanup and repair services, helping to remediate damage, making it “Like it never even happened,” for both commercial and residential customers.

Franchises named CAPA Mentors

12/3/2015 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Pulaski & Laurel Counties is honored to announce that we have been named one of 35 franchises recognized as a Commercial Accounts Program Mentor.  As the SERVPRO brand grows, our reputation has changed from a residential fire and water restoration company to a restoration company that is “Ready for Whatever Happens”. 

Because of this success, both locally and nationally, the need for standardized systems to help develop and deliver consistency in the commercial marketplace for disaster recovery services exists.  It has been inspiring to be able to help develop these systems, the training, and help utilize innovative software, sales principles, and structured business practices needed to help establish a Commercial Accounts Program nationally. 

It is even more rewarding to be able to help assist franchises through this mentorship program who are newer to commercial disaster recovery, and may need help.  We have committed to help any SERVPRO franchise who selects us as a Commercial Accounts Program Mentor with any assistance needed on a commercial loss, regardless of size.  From managing and producing these losses to scoping, sales, estimation, or resource management, our local team is “Ready for Whatever happens”.  Our team believes in the unilateral vision from our corporate office that these losses need to be structured and systematic, and consistent from coast to coast. 

We are committed to using our knowledge, gained right here in Central and Eastern Kentucky, to help those who have clients in need.  We want to take the time to thank each of our clients, both residential and commercial alike, for all of the support given to us over the years.  Without you, our passion of serving those int heir time of need could not happen, and we are eternally grateful.
