Importance of Fire Drills in the Workplace

9/6/2019 (Permalink)

Announcement of National Preparedness Month 2019. Reads, 'Prepared Not Scared' Statistically speaking, 50% of all businesses that incur a disaster, do not reopen.

Imagine having to close your business down as a result of a fire. Aside from the loss of revenue, assets and peace of mind, you and your employees could potentially be out of a job. Statistically speaking, 50% of all businesses that incur a disaster, do not reopen.

As a disaster recovery company, SERVPRO of West Erie County has witnessed total loss frequently. We empathize with the victims and make it our business to work as closely as we can and be sympathetic to their situation at all times.

September is National Preparedness Month and SEVRPRO of West Erie County wants to help you and your business beat the odds and prepare for the unexpected.

As a business owner/manager with limited time availability, you may be asking if fire drills are important in the workplace? Is preparing for an unexpected fire damage necessary or even worthwhile? The answer to each one of those questions is a solid 'YES'. Preparation always beats devastation when it comes to emergency restoration services.

Listed below are three benefits to practicing a fire drill in your business that can help you and your employees survive an unexpected fire emergency:

  • Reduce panic in dangerous situations – Practice makes perfect, and when it comes to emergencies it can make all difference between life and death. By practicing your fire drill at least 4 times a year, employees are equipped with the ideal action plan in the case of a real emergency.
  • Security – During fire drills, business alarms, emergency exits, and strategy will be examined in depth. This is helpful for developing the best evacuation plan, and more importantly, ensuring that all safety equipment is functioning properly.
  • Longevity – The last and most important benefit of practicing a fire drill in your business is retaining your legal standing. All businesses are required to perform fire drills, and you can prolong the life and vision of your business by regularly performing them.

As you can see, there are tangible and emotional benefits to performing fire drills in the workplace. You do not want to be a business that suffers from an avoidable catastrophic loss, so prepare today.

If you are effected by fire damage and are in need of repair or restoration, call SERVPRO of West Erie County at (814) 806 - 1987

If you take a look around your local Walmart or Target this time of year, there is no doubt about it: it’s back to school time!

As you get your kids ready for back-to school with fresh new pencils and clean lunch boxes, you may also find yourself wanting to get your home ready for back to school.

Although we are well known for our fire and water mitigation, we also offer cleaning services, such as ceiling and wall cleaning, drapes, upholstery, and window washing.  We provide residential services, as well as commercial cleaning.

Ceiling and wall cleaning should be a part of your regular cleaning and maintenance schedule. But for many homeowners, this is a daunting task and usually put off for years at a time.

Think about it: Your ceilings and walls are exposed to all the dirt and dust particles in the air, pet dander and other contaminants.

It is always a good idea to clean your walls prior to painting them to ensure the primer and paint can adhere to the walls properly.

Drapery and curtains can be aesthetically pleasing and add a warmth feeling to any room while also trapping a surprising number of contaminants.

Maybe you are thinking: how often do my drapes really need to be cleaned? It is recommended to clean your drapery and curtains at least once every two years. Here is a definitive guide of how often you should be cleaning everything in your home.

At some point in time, the accumulation of dirt and dust will make itself known through physical appearance. Regularly cleaning them not only reduces the number of contaminants in your home, but also prolongs the life of the fabric.

Whether it’s windows, carpet, upholstery, drapery, or general cleaning, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of West Erie County! We specialize in cleaning fabrics and materials using wet or dry-cleaning methods as needed.

Differentiating Qualities of a Top Restoration Company

7/29/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of West Erie County is dedicated to providing quality service, a timely response, and doing business with integrity.

Some household inconveniences such as a leaky faucet, dirty blinds, and minor repairs can be handled with a little DIY expertise and a basic set of tools.

But what happens when you face bigger issues such as a flooded basement, smoke damage, or a black mold infestation. You may be better suited to call your local restoration company.

Before you decide who to call, and who to employ, you are probably going to do a Google search. You need to consider the fact that the workers you hire will be in your home and business.

Additionally, just because a company may look qualified to do the work on the internet, it doesn’t mean the workers actually possess the credentials and training.

It is easier than you may want to believe to falsify information with advertisements and propaganda. Do your homework before allowing contractors into your home or business.

Is the website credible and valid? Everyone has heard the horror stories of the email internet scam where someone misrepresented themselves and made false promises for their own personal gain. One of the quickest ways to determine if a website is credible is to find out if they have informative links on their website. Most respectable restoration companies will provide the following services:

Water Restoration

Fire Restoration

Storm Damage

Commercial Restoration

Cleaning Services

Once clicking on the link, it should take you to a web page with information about the services provided and how to attain more information. Additionally, you can check out their Facebook, Yelp and Google Reviews.

Read Customer Reviews and Testimonials Most reputable companies probably have a place on their website where you can read customer testimonials. Think about it: You probably wouldn’t buy a car or a new electronic device before reading the reviews on it first. Reading other customer reports can be very helpful in deciding the right restoration company for you.

SERVPRO of West Erie County is dedicated to providing quality service, a timely response, and doing business with integrity. The employees at SERVPRO of West Erie County live and work in the community and take pride in helping their local friends and neighbors in emergency situations.
