Because We Care and We Give Backs

4/14/2020 (Permalink)

During this very uncertain time of the covid-19 pandemic many of us are stuck at home and bored. We also have those people on the other side of the spectrum who can’t miss a day of work because what they do is so important. I am talking about our First Responders. Fire and Police Departments never close. They are here to maintain order and keep us safe. That is why we are taking this time to try and give back to a few of our local communities during this time. They are putting their lives at risk even more so now than before. They don’t know who they may come in contact with, whether they have been sick or mentally unstable due to seclusion. We are so proud to know they are out there doing what they do best. We have been able to give back to our communities by cleaning some of their facilities during this time so they can stay healthy while trying to protect us. We at SERVPRO of Dyersburg/Union City can not express how much we appreciate all of our First Responders out there for everything they do to keep us safe each and every day.

How Do I Clean the Odors Out of The Air of My Home?

3/25/2020 (Permalink)

When house fires happen, they can leave a smokey odor behind that is unpleasant and not safe to breathe. At SERVPRO of Dyersburg/Union City we have an ozone machine that is used to clean the air. Ozone machines take the odors out of the air without the use of chemicals. 

Ozone machines can be used to clean the air of a room of a house or the entire floor of a building. These machines have a wide range of uses. Ozone machines can be used to deodorize from pets and food odors as well. 

How does ozone work?

We go in to the home and remove all living things such as; pets, people, plants, etc. Ozone is a small machine that plugs in to a regular outlet. How this works is the machine breaks down the oxygen (O2) and converts it into ozone (O3). By using this machine it cleans the air without using any chemicals making it safer and easier to clean the air in your home.

If you have any odors in your home , call SERVPRO of Dyersburg/Union City to assess the situation. We have the knowledge and tools to effectively remove odors in your home or business.

Should I Clean my Air Ducts and HVAC after COVID-19?

micro Call SERVPRO of Dyersburg/Union City to clean your air ducts!

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is running high in our communities right now. We are all becoming more cautious about where we go, what we touch, how often we wash our hands, and even who we are around. We are also practicing social distancing. All of these things are great ways to help prevent and protect yourself from hopefully coming in contact with this virus. 

Many of you may be thinking, “Well, what will we do next after this is gone?” This virus is a respiratory related virus. I know many people are amping up cleaning hard surfaces, one place that is out of sight out of mind that most people won’t think about is air ducts and HVAC. This will be a place that these germs can hide and spread back into the air. While there is no set time amount of time between cleanings, a good rule of thumb would be about once a year. While each home is different, some homes may want to clean air ducts and HVAC units more or less often than others. Some that may want to be cleaned more often but aren’t limited to: smokers in the household, pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander, residents with allergies or asthma, after home renovations, or prior to moving into a new home. 

Dust, pollen, odors, and other contaminants could be causing your HVAC unit to not be working at peak efficiency. These things could also be causing you to have breathing issues and costing you more money on your electric bill.

By servicing your HVAC unit frequently this could help restore your unit to peak efficiency, eliminate offensive odors, and reduce the potential for mold and the spreading of germs and viruses.

SERVPRO of Dyersburg/Union City would love to help you breathe a little easier by cleaning your air ducts and HVAC unit.
