F1rst Responder Bowl

1/7/2019 (Permalink)

One of SERVPRO’s sayings is “Like it never even happened.” With that being said, SERVPRO choosing to sponsor the F1rst Responder Bowl on December 26th, 2018 was perfect for us for two reasons:

-Our franchises all over the world support local first responders

-Our saying fit what happened in the game perfectly: it being cancelled

Right after Boston College scored their first touchdown, a thunder and lightening storm came across the field. After a long delay of game, officials feared that the storm was not going away, so they ended up cancelling the game.

Even though the game got cancelled, SERVPRO of Butler, Hopkins, Ohio, Muhlenberg and Edmonson Counties were happy to help support the cause by purchasing two tickets for local Dallas first responders to attend the game. With all the franchises coming together, we were able to pack the stadium with these brave men and women and help celebrate the sacrifice they give every time they go to work!

Giving Back To Your Community

11/6/2018 (Permalink)

Most people end up doing their grocery shopping at the same few places. One of the biggest local grocery stores is Kroger Industries. While they are a store with good produce, prices and environment, did you know they also give back to their local communities?

With their community rewards program, each Kroger Plus Card holder can choose a charity for Kroger to donate a portion of what they spend to. It is as easy as going to their website, signing in, and looking through the available charities. After choosing one, once a year you must go back on their site and confirm your charity again for the coming year. If you are a part of a nonprofit, school, or church, you can also apply to be on the list of places to donate to.

After signing up, every receipt you receive will state how much is going to your charity and what that charity is.

This is a quick way to make sure you are giving money back to your community as much as possible.

What is an ERP?

9/13/2018 (Permalink)

As a homeowner or business owner it is important to have an emergency plan and contacts close by in case anything out of the ordinary and unexpected happens. In most cases you cannot fathom the amount of stress involved. SERVPRO understands that stress. In most cases people don't think about the unanticipated things that may occur to your business such as flooding, tornadoes, fire, etc. 

Pre-planning is key and SERVPRO has the experience. SERVPRO offers an Emergency Ready Program that is available to you.  Our Emergency Ready Program, also known as an ERP, is the best way to minimize and reduce any interruption in your business following a disaster.  According to the latest industry research, as much as 50% of businesses will not recover following a devastating disaster.  A majority of the businesses that had a preparedness plan in place were able to reopen for business and survive.

By developing a SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile for your business, you can minimize the business disruption. Pre-planning will give you an immediate plan of action and serve as a type of peace of mind insurance policy.  Knowledge of what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation. 

The SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile is a NO COST assessment of your facility.  The ERP profile document will contain valuable information that will be needed in the event of an emergency.   We will identify details such as shut-off valve locations, high priority areas, and 1st in line contact information. Our SERVPRO staff will come out at NO COST and walk you through the process. It takes very little time to complete and save a lot of time in the event you ever need it.   This Profile will get you back on track quickly in the event of an emergency or disaster because you will have a plan of action to execute.

SERVPRO of Butler, Hopkins, Ohio, Muhlenberg, and Edmonson Counties is your local professional resource to assist you through the process of mitigation and restoration. You will have an industry leader close by and a life line to help you command authorization for the work to begin quickly.  When your business has a quick reference of what, when, how, and who to call, you are able to respond and solve decisions that need to be made efficiently. Our number one goal is to have you re-open for business while saving you time and money.

Give us a call today and set up your ERP!

Before & After Commercial Floor Cleaning

Commercial Before & After Commercial Floor Cleaning Before & After

In a lot of homes or businesses, they have tile floor. With tile flooring, the grout that holds the tile pieces together can hold dirt and show it much worse than the tile itself. While the tile is easy to clean, it is hard work to scrub the dirt out of the grout.

That is where we are able to help.

We can come into your business or home and not only clean the tile, but also clean the grout. We are also able to work around the business or home owners schedule. For instance, we can wait until after your business is closed for the day to clean, so you will never have to close your doors because of us.

This before and after photo shows our work on a commercial floor. You can see how dramatic the difference is. Having your floors clean can make your business look much more professional and put together! Call us today at 270-875-4883 to receive a free quote!

Commercial Library Water Loss Mary Weldon Library Water Loss

Now that winter has hit, we are seeing a lot of burst pipes in both businesses and homes throughout South Central Kentucky. One of the worst places to experience a water loss happened in Glasgow, Kentucky this week: Mary Weldon Memorial Library. The broken pipe flooded both of their floors, and created a huge mess. We were able to get to them within an hour, start extracting water and starting the drying process. The job was so large, it made front page news in the Glasgow Daily Times. We are happy to be able to assist in the time of need!

Commercial Duct Cleaning

8/16/2017 (Permalink)

  • The process begins by using patented equipment including a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the duct's shape an 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 particles in the airstream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the environment clean.

  • As an optional process, a sealant or coating product may be sprayed to address odor to microbial concerns.

  • Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.

Duct cleaning may not always be necessary. SERVPRO of Butler, Hopkins, Ohio, Muhlenberg, and Edmonson Counties will inspect your HVAC system and ductwork and make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This inspection can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your HVAC system and ductwork.

In some circumstances, such as after fire, smoke or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the cleanup process. In these cases, SERVPRO of Butler, Hopkins, Ohio, Muhlenberg, and Edmonson Counties often restore the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage condition.
