With one of the biggest holiday's quickly approaching are you and your business ready? There are many parties this time of year in normal business environment that incur a lot of food traffic and the possibility of increased germ levels as well.
COVID is still lingering around and for some that looks like having a Christmas party over zoom from the comfort of your own home. For others if you have a smaller office or your employees are vaccinated you may have a party in person. Either way you chose to celebrate the holidays it is always a good idea to have a general cleaning such as ducts and floors done before the event and a COVID fogging after the event to eliminate any risk that may come up from the in person party. We are available not to start scheduling your cleaning to ensure your staff and customers are completely safe and ready to spent the holidays with their own family members this season.
Ending Storm Season
Storm season is coming to a close and the beach days are becoming fewer and far between with the water getting colder this time of year. Now is the time to complete those house projects you have been wanting to accomplish but it has been too hot to even think about doing those.
While you are tackling your house projects on your mind it is a great time to also think about ways to be more prepared for next years storm season. With the closing of this storm season many necessities that are usually out of stock will most likely be in stock and possibly on sale as well. If you buy ahead it is a great way to be prepared for next year and get a great deal on the items you need.
Now that storm season is coming to a close so is turtle season. You will be able to have bonfires on the beach as well. Remember to clean up when you are done and not leave a mess for the next group that wants to have one as well.
Let's Talk Business
What are some of the biggest things that you worry about with your business from a customer stand point? Do you think about how you are viewed by potential customers? Do you think about the appearance of your business when customers come it? Are there things that you wish looked a little nicer or have some unsightly things that need to be looked at?
Well, we here at SERVPRO can help with some of those things!
We perform duct cleaning, dryer vent cleaning, and tile and carpet cleaning as well. It is amazing how much a good smelling business from clean air ducts can change the perspective of a customer. If a customer walks in and sees dirty vents and your business smells musty or dirty it could easily deter them from ever returning to your business. The same goes for dirty floors. Floors are one of the first things that customer notice when coming into a new business. If the floors are not taken care of and look grimy this too can deter customer incredibly quickly.

Organization is Key
Many of us have little ones at home or have grandchildren that love toys and stuffed animals. Those little ones often don't think about where they are putting their toys or how that could affect your home and its airflow. If a large stuffed animal or a toy is left in front of a vent it could easily disrupt the proper air flow to and from the air handler. The improper air flow can lead to a fire hazard if not taken care of in a timely manner.
Something that could help avoid this situation is better organization. If all of the cars they like to drive around and all of the stuffed animals have a place to call "home" it will help them to remember when they are done playing each day to return their toys to their proper parking spots or homes and keep your home a little more fire safe.
Hustle and Bustle of the Year
The kids are all going back to school and college and fall sports are in full swing again. Soon Halloween will be upon us along with Thanksgiving and Christmas following shortly behind.
Is your business feeling a bit neglected cleaning wise? Maybe the floors are as clean and nice as you would like them to be or maybe the vents are looking a little dusty, and lets be honest, that is not how you want to look to customers and clients!
Luckily for you we handle both of those things! We do carpet and tile cleanings as well as duct cleaning to help get and keep your business looking in tip top shape.
Lastly we also do COVID cleanings because they also happen to be on the rise with all of the events and less strict regulations happening.
Give us a call today to get scheduled for any of the above cleanings you may need to have taken care of today!
We can't wait to hear from you!
Were you affected?
With the recent uptick in storms rolling through were you affected by the extra amounts of rain?
Many Floridians do not worry about tropical storms or even Hurricanes unless they are a category 3 or above. While this may be fine for some homeowners, it is not for others. Some homes may be completely unaffected while offers are devastated by the massive amounts of rain these storm bring through our area.
Now is the time to check your homes exterior to make sure you have no exposed areas where wind driven rain could get in.
Wind driven rain comes in for the most part from bad shingle work or unsecured corners of a home.
You can test this by using a hose and having another person stand inside to see if you see any water. It is much more effective to have a small amount of water come into your home from a hose rather than an entire storms worth of water that ruins you waters, structure, and potentially your personal belongings. We would hate to see you unprepared during the next storm. Take precautions now!
Many people are returning to work in the office like they had before COVID with some restrictions put in place to keep everyone safe. Was that office building cleaned at all while everyone was away? Has the dust and dirt built up in the over a year time span?
Now is a great time to have your ducts and carpets cleaned before everyone comes back to the office. Not having your office cleaned properly could result in people becoming sick and ultimately working from home anyway.
Duct and carpet cleanings usually only take a day each or sometimes less depending on the size of the space. We also do tile and linoleum cleaning as well to take care of any floor cleaning needs you may have.
Give us a call today for pricing and scheduling. We want to help you get your employees and staff back to work safely!
Dust Build Up
Have you had your ducts and dryer vent cleaned since the beginning of COVID? Most of us have not, for fear of letting someone into our home.
The risk of putting this off for over a year is the dust and build up in those areas can cause dust in the air issues as well as a fire hazard.
These areas need to be cleaned once a year minimum, whether it is in your home or your office it needs to be done.
Most of these areas are going to be heavier in dust and dirt with everyone working from home for the last year plus. This could make the fire hazard even worse due to the extra build-up of dust and dirt in the vents and system.
Another thing to consider is also how often you are changing your filter. Most people recommend every 3-6 months. With the COVID virus and the extra build-up of dust and dirt it is a good idea to change that to once a month to prevent extra hazard and keep the air you are breathing more clean.

Are You Looking at Buying a New House?
The market for housing is currently favoring sellers, but what do you need to know if you are a buyer? What are some things you should be on the look out for?
Most people have a home inspection done, however they do not cover all of the bases that should be in order to know your potential new home does not have any damage.
When walking through a potential home first check around the outside of the home. Most homes in Florida are a block build with stucco over. Make sure there are no holes or cracks in the stucco that could potentially leak when the sprinklers are on or when it rains. We all know how Florida loves to rain daily during the summer.
Next you should check inside. The main areas of focus should be around any exits such as doors, windows and sliding doors. Do the same here to make sure there are not any holes or cracks for potential leaks. You should also check for discoloration as this could mean there was a leak at one point in time.
Finally check the bathrooms. Look in the vanities to make sure there are no on going leaks from the pipes underneath that could leave the bottom of the vanity discolored or warped from previous or on going damage. Finally check the shower. The shower maybe the hardest place to check as often you cannot see the damage underneath that could be going on. Still be vigilant on the shower to make sure you don't see anything that is off, especially when you turn it on.
If you find anything that looks questionable, give us a call today to set up an appointment and we would be happy to come look at it for you!
