We love to get in the Christmas spirit this time of year. In the past few years, we have been visited by Dehu, our Elf on the Shelf! Yep! He comes to visit us in Lee County, Alabama every year leading up to Christmas. He hides around our office and warehouse each night and waits for one our employees to find him the next morning.

We get so excited to be able to share his hiding spot each day during the week after he is found by a team member! If you're not already following us on social media, this is a great time to do so and to have something to look forward to each day. You can find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter

Is your Auburn, Alabama business READY?

11/4/2021 (Permalink)

It's been over a year since we last shared about our Emergency READY Profiles for your business, so we wanted to talk more about it in today's blog.

Did you know that according to research as many as 50% of businesses close down following a disaster. Of the businesses that survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind. And knowing you are "Ready for whatever happens" speaks trust to your clients and employees that in the event your business is affected by a disaster, they don’t necessarily have to be.

By developing a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile for your business, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation and can help minimize how water and fire damage can affect your business.

    • A no cost assessment of your facility.
      This means there is no need to allocate funds, giving you a great value at no cost.
    • A concise Profile Document that contains only the critical information needed in the event of an emergency.
      It will only take a little time to complete and will not take you away from current projects. But it will save a lot of time if ever needed.
    • A guide to help you get back into your building following a disaster.
      This can help minimize the amount of time your business is inactive by having an immediate plan of action.
    • Establishes your local SERVPRO Franchise Professional as your disaster mitigation and restoration provider.
      You have a provider that is recognized as an industry leader and close by.
    • Identification of the line of command for authorizing work to begin.
      This saves time so we can begin the work of mitigating the damage which can save you time and money.
    • Provides facility details such as shut-off valve locations, priority areas and priority contact information.
      Having a quick reference of what to do, how to do it and who to call provides solutions in advance of an emergency so that during the emergency you are "Ready for whatever happens."

Portable Space Heater Safety

10/28/2021 (Permalink)

With the weather here in Lee County, Alabama finally feeling like fall, we wanted to share a few tips on how to make sure to keep safety in mind when using a portable space heater in your home to lower your risk of a home fire.

Portable Space Heaters

  • Keep combustible objects at least three feet away from portable heating devices.
  • Buy only heaters evaluated by a nationally recognized laboratory, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
  • Check to make the portable heater has a thermostat control mechanism and will switch off automatically if the heater falls over.
  • Only use crystal clear K-1 kerosene in kerosene heaters. Never overfill it. Use the heater in a well-ventilated room.

Thanks to Ready.gov for these great tips!

A roof leak recently caused damage to this Lee County, Alabama business. Due to the size of the loss and the equipment needed, we brought in a generator to ensure we have plenty of power to dry the impacted areas in a timely manner with our machines.

Due to the size of the building, we used our desiccant to help us dry the structure and materials. Check it out in the photo. Should we do a series featuring some of our equipment? Let us know if you'd be interested in learning more!
