SERVPRO's Warehouse System

8/8/2019 (Permalink)

Bubble wrapped items waiting to be packed into a pod!

When your home or business has a major loss (fire, water, mold, storm, ect), there will typically be some type of rebuild that needs to happen. While fixing your home, most of the time families or businesses do not have anywhere to store their items after we have cleaned them. SERVPRO of Daviess County saw this need and has worked hard to fill it.

When a loss comes in like this, we pack up all the items that will need to be cleaned and bring them to our shop. Once at our location, we place them in our “dirty” warehouse until it is time to process the business or home. They are then moved to the “cleaning” warehouse, where they are processed. Another thing about the cleaning warehouse is that your contents are the only contents in that area at this time. This helps ensure that no customers belongings are mixed together on accident.

After going through the cleaning process, the items are then moved to our holding warehouse. This warehouse is climate controlled and is where the items stay while waiting to be returned to the business or home that had the loss. They are placed in large pods that are organized and labeled for your job. This also makes it easy to find your items when it is time to return them.

Theme of the Month - June

6/18/2019 (Permalink)

Theme of the Month - June

To begin the summer, SERVPRO of Daviess County, Kentucky is focusing on informing our clients on exactly how the claim process works in relation to technology. All of our paperwork, information, and job readings are tracked on specialty apps created for us, and are immediate uploaded to the cloud for safe storage.

While this makes it easier on our crews to get the information they need, it also helps our office staff get the information instantly, so they do not have to wait for the physical copy. This has also helped our customer service improve. As soon as documents are signed, they are sent to our office, but they are also sent to the clients emails themselves. This helps ease our customers when they are in this stressful time.

Even our Marketing Department has technology in their programs. We are able to track job status, what is going on with leads, take notes on client needs, and track referrals from our insurance agents and adjusters.

With making it “Like it never even happened” being our goal, we are doing everything we can to do this and to make the customer feel at ease at the same time.

Content Cleaning Process

5/17/2019 (Permalink)

Have you ever given thought to how SERVPRO transports and cleans your home’s or businesses items when they are impacted by a water or fire loss? Our employees have extensive training on how to properly pack and move your contents to prevent the least damage as possible. We make sure to bring plenty of supplies to each job, so we can wrap every item with care.

Once we get to our office, we go to our the “dirty items” Wearhouse and create a barricade with your name on each box or large item to prevent any mix ups. We then have a separate Wearhouse with all our cleaning equipment in it. We only clean one customers contents at a time, so there is no chance of mixing up any items. This also ensures that once an item is clean, that it does not get mixed back in with dirty items.

Once we are through with one customers items, we then move it to a large crate with the customer’s name on it, and move the large crate into our climate controlled Wearhouse, where only clean items are stored. Putting into this climate ensures the quality of the items cleaning while they are waiting to be returned.

With the process set up in this way, it is far easier for us to keep customers items together and find them at a moment’s notice.  

What can cause mold growth? WATER!

5/6/2019 (Permalink)

One of the worst feelings is having unwanted water come into your home. No matter situation or how dirty the water is, it causes you panic and it is not a fun process to go through. When you are trying to decide how to handle this situation, consider what can cause if the damage is taken care of property: MOLD.

There are a lot of different types of mold out there, and none of them are fun to encounter. One of our most common calls is about a business or homeowner discovering black mold in their basement or crawlspaces.

Black mold can grow in dark, warm, damp places in the home, and can begin sprouting with 72 hours of water contact. It is a good idea to regularly check all the places in the home that could be hiding mold.

While you may not have even experiences a water loss, even the moisture from the Earth can cause enough water for the spores to take hold.

Set an alarm on your phone to remind you to check problem areas each month!

F1rst Reponder Bowl - CANCELLED

1/7/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO is the lead sponsor of the annual F1rst Responder Bowl in December of each year. SERVPRO decided to get involved with this bowl game to help show their support for all the local men and women who put their lives on the line for others each day. Each franchise also helps to fill the stadium with local fire fighters and police offers by purchasing tickets for them ahead of time. This way, they can enjoy a day with their families stress-free. This is one of the many ways that SERVPRO tries to give back to their communities.

There was one downside of the 2018 game, it was cancelled. Right after Boston College scored their first touchdown, a thunderstorm hit the area. After a long weather delay, the officials decided it was best to cancel the game altogether.

You could almost say the F1rst Responder Bowl was “Like it never even happened.”!

Cleaning Commercial Tile

8/9/2018 (Permalink)

Before & After Cleaning

One of the toughest jobs is to clean the grout in between your tile flooring. With grouts rough texture, it holds dirt easily, unlike the tile itself. After years of walking on the floors in homes, it normally starts changing colors from dirt buildup. In businesses, this happens much faster.

When a business tile and grout cleaning gets called in, we are typically able to schedule our service around when your business is closed for the day. We do not want your business to be impacted by our cleaning service. Operating like this helps many businesses who cannot close for a day or close early. We try to accommodate all schedules.

The photo is the before and after of us coming in and cleaning a commercial floor. It looked like new grout once we were through and helped the business maintain their professional image with clean floors. Call us at 270-683-1888 for a free quote on your home or commercial business!

Before and after pet noses smudged glass!

One of the hardest chores is cleaning windows, whether that be in your home or business. Here is an easy way to clean them with only four household items:
-Bucket
-Microfiber Cloths
-Water
-Newspapers
1. You take a damp microfiber cloth, and wash the entire window. It will have wet streaks once finished with the cloth.
2. Then take a newspaper, crinkle it up into a ball, and rub the windows. This will soak up the leftover water, and make your windows shine!

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!
