Even though SERVPRO offers cleaning, restoration and even construction services, we know that there are some do-it-yourself individuals out there. We want you to be safe, so here are a few tips from the pros for performing those do-it-yourself home projects.

  • Tip #1: Anytime you’re sawing wood, it’s good to have safety glasses to protect your eyes from saw dust.

Spring into Cleaning! Carpet Cleaning Tips

4/22/2018 (Permalink)

Easter has come and gone and that means that most of us are thinking about spring, warmer weather and perhaps some necessary home cleaning! This month, we’re going to give you some tips to jump start your spring cleaning!  We’ll start with carpets and the importance of carpet cleaning.

  • Tip #1: Your carpets should be cleaned at least once a year.
  • Tip #2: Keeping your carpets clean reduces or eliminates dust mites and micro-organisms living in the carpet as well as improves the air quality of your home or business
  • Tip #3: When you clean your carpets, don’t forget your upholsteries as they can also gather dust mites and other micro-organisms.

If you’re not sure where to go for your carpet cleaning needs, be sure to call SERVPRO as we offer a variety of carpet cleaning services. That’s it for today, we hope you will join us for next week’s Friday lunchtime minute, where you get tips from the PROS.

Spring into Cleaning! Windowsill Growth

4/22/2018 (Permalink)

This month, we’ve been talking about spring cleaning. Most of us are already looking forward to the warmer weather and working in our yards but the shift in season also brings something that most of us don’t want: windowsill growth. But not to panic, it’s not always a cause for concern.

  • Tip #1: What appears to be windowsill mold isn’t always mold, so don’t worry too quickly most of the time you can just wipe it clean.
  • Tip #2: To remove it you can use one-part bleach with three parts warm water and remove with a scrub brush.
  • Tip #3: Black mold on windowsills is not toxigenic but it is allergenic, meaning the worst that will happen is that your allergies will flare up.

If you have any questions about mold, don’t hesitate to call us. We have professionals that can determine if it is mold on sight. That’s it for today, we hope you will join us for next week’s Friday lunchtime minute, where you get tips from the PROS. And remember, when the unexpected happens call SERVPRO of Dyersburg/Union City.

Spring into Cleaning! Utility Box Cleaning

4/22/2018 (Permalink)

This month, we’ve been talking about spring cleaning and some really great tips from our PROS on areas that we don’t typically associate with spring cleaning. Today we tackle another of those areas – the utility box. It’s an often over-looked area, but in the event of the unexpected the following tips can really save you from a headache.

  • Tip #1: Be sure the box itself is clear of dust and debris
  • Tip #2: Make sure the utility box is not blocked. In the event of an emergency you want quick, easy access to it.
  • Tip #3: Be sure to check the labeling every spring. If you haven’t done this in some time, it’s possible that the label is peeling. Re-apply those labels and make it easier for service providers such as ourselves to get the job done.

That’s it for today, we hope you will join us for next week’s Friday lunchtime minute, where you get tips from the PROS. And remember, when the unexpected happens call SERVPRO of Dyersburg/Union City.

Staying Safe in the Aftermath of a Storm

3/27/2018 (Permalink)

Like it or not, tornado season is nearly upon us! We want you to be prepared if the unexpected happens.  While there is loss of life that occurs during a storm, many lives are also lost in the aftermath of a storm. Here’s a few tips on how to stay safe after the storm passes.

  • Tip #1: Tornadoes often strike when you least expect it. Be sure you have a designated meeting place to reconnect with loved ones in case you get separated during the storm.
  • Tip #2: Be sure to keep your driver’s license or some kind of photo identification on you. This will make it easier to access your home through security checkpoints that are often established in the harder hit areas.
  • Tip #3: Always keep your shoes on. Tornadoes leave bent pieces of metal, screws and many other debris that could easily cut you. Try to keep your shoes on in the aftermath.
