We always care

3/27/2019 (Permalink)

When SERVPRO of Rexburg/Rigby receives a good review, we can’t help but think we must be doing something right! We value ourselves in having great customer service and always being able to make sure that this is just what the customer has received.

Before we go to a job we try and relay as much information as possible to our technicians. We do this so they can be prepared for anything that may come up on the job and be able to offer the best customer service. Not all of our jobs are fire, water, and mold. We also encounter biohazard and crime scene cleanup which takes extreme compassion and understanding on our part.

If you have a biohazard or crime scene cleanup and would like the most caring and understanding company to help, give SERVPRO a call at (208) 523-5365.

We strive to be better

Reviews are everything to our franchise. We strive to always get positive reviews but also appreciate negative ones. With negative reviews we feel that this gives our company room to grow. If we are not doing something correctly than we are able to address these concerns and better ourselves in the long run. We have learned over the years that we aren’t always going to be perfect with everything we do. But this way we are at least able to see our faults and grown and learn from them.

I burnt potatoes and they were able to get the smoke smell out of my house.

April Showers Brings May Flowers

3/13/2019 (Permalink)

Many people, myself included, are astatic and cannot wait for those beautiful flowers to bloom and that terrible white stuff on the ground to disappear for a few months. But are we really ready for all spring has to offer? There are many hidden dangers as well as preparations we should be checking off our list before spring makes its first appearance.

On www.diynetwork.com they suggest a few things that will help you be more prepared.

  • Clean Gutters - Grab a ladder, and check your gutters for debris. Remove as much as you can with your hands (Don't forget to wear gloves!). Remove any leftover gunk with a garden hose. Take off any nozzle and have a helper turn on the water when you’re ready. Shove the hose into the downspout to power out of gooseneck bends. Make sure your downspouts channel water at least five feet from foundation walls.
  • Scrub Walls, Baseboards and Outlets - Scrub all the walls — in the bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms and living areas — with a sponge or brush and mild soap and water. This includes baseboards and outlets. Make sure to completely dry outlet covers before replacing.
  • Replace Filters - Replace all filters including water, range hood and air vent filters. You should replace these filters every 3-6 months depending on the type of filter you have.
  • Clean Faucets and Showerheads - Unscrew the faucet aerators, sink sprayers and showerheads, and soak them in equal parts vinegar and water solution. Let them soak for an hour, then rinse with warm water.
  • Clean Out the Dryer Vent - A clogged dryer vent can be a fire hazard. To clean it, disconnect the vent from the back of the machine and use a dryer vent brush to remove lint. Outside your house, remove the dryer vent cover and use the brush to remove lint from the other end of the vent line. Make sure the vent cover flap moves freely.
  • Wash Exterior Windows - Hire a window-cleaning service to clean all exterior windows.
  • Keep Allergens Away - Keep dust, mold and pollen at bay by decluttering your home, checking pipes for leaks and keeping the air clean.
  • Check Foundation Vents - A house with a crawl space has vents along the foundation walls. The vents provide air circulation that helps prevent excess moisture and mold growth, and they prevent critters from taking up residence underneath your home. The screens collect leaves and other debris from fall and winter. Spring is a great time to clean them out and check for damage. Clean the vents by hand or use a shop vacuum. Repair any damaged screens — critters can get through even the smallest holes.
  • Clean the Grill - Your grill has most likely collected dust during fall and winter. Help your grill live a long life with these maintenance tips, whether you have a charcoal or gas grill.
  • Prep Your Garden - You can't have a successful garden without good soil. Follow these tips on how to prepare your soil to help you grow a lush garden.
  • Test Smoke Alarms - Test smoke alarms and CO detectors, and change out batteries as needed. It's cheap, only takes a few minutes and can save your family's lives.
  • Clean Outdoor Furniture - Outdoor entertaining season is just around the corner.

Flood Warnings

3/1/2019 (Permalink)

With the winter weather slowly drifting into spring, rain is sneaking right in. And with rain sometimes brings floods. Floods in the streets, yards, and even worse… your home or business. One way to prepare for a possible flood situation is to have a plan. On www.ready.gov they have a list of preparations you can use in case your area floods or there are flood warnings.

Prepare NOW

  • Know types of flood risk in your area. Visit FEMA’s Flood Map Service Center for information.
  • Sign up for your community’s warning system. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio also provide emergency alerts.
  • If flash flooding is a risk in your location, then monitor potential signs, such as heavy rain.
  • Learn and practice evacuation routes, shelter plans, and flash flood response.
  • Gather supplies in case you have to leave immediately, or if services are cut off. Keep in mind each person’s specific needs, including medication. Don’t forget the needs of pets. Obtain extra batteries and charging devices for phones and other critical equipment.
  • Purchase or renew a flood insurance policy. It typically takes up to 30 days for a policy to go into effect and can protect the life you've built. Homeowner’s policies do not cover flooding. Get flood coverage under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)
  • Keep important documents in a waterproof container. Create password-protected digital copies.
  • Protect your property. Move valuables to higher levels. Declutter drains and gutters. Install check valves. Consider a sump pump with a battery.

If you have a fire, water, mold, or asbestos disaster give SERVPRO a call today at (208) 523-5365.

Are you prepared???

A house or commercial fire can be a very scary event. The scariest part can be how unprepared you are when a terrible disaster like a fire happens.

On www.wikihow.com they offer a few examples of things you can do to make sure that you are a bit more prepared for this sort of situation.

Purchase a house with fire sprinklers installed. A sprinkler only applies water to the area threatened by fire.

Make copies of important documents and pictures and keep a copy of them at a friends or relatives house. Put the originals in a fire resistant safe.

Make an escape plan to evacuate your home in case of a fire or other emergency. If your room is on the second floor, consider purchasing a fire ladder to aid in escape.

Keep areas around the furnace, water heater, outlets, and other potentially hazardous areas clear of combustible materials.

Purchase and install smoke detectors or test the ones you have to ensure they are in working order.

Purchase fire extinguishers for your home and consider getting a Class k extinguisher for your kitchen in case of grease fires.

Practice escaping from your house as if it were on fire by staying low and following your escape plan.

Ensure exits such as doors and windows aren't obstructed and are in working order if you do not choose to repair them.

Have your chimney inspected and swept regularly. This will prevent build up of residue which causes chimney fires.

Keep the main gas shut off and electric meter visible and accessible to aid the fire department in the extinguishing of the fire.

Call your local fire department and ask about a home fire inspection. they'll most likely be willing and will do it for free. while you’re calling you can ask about any fire prevention functions.

Get involved with your fire department. It may be one of the best ways to prepare. Try volunteering for them, if they need help or if they have an auxiliary you can join to help at functions.

Moldy bathrooms

2/14/2019 (Permalink)

Our crews were in Jackson, Wy doing a mold job that had occurred because of leak in a customer’s bathroom. This disaster in turn caused mold to grow. If you suspect mold anywhere in your home make sure to call a trusted professional right away.

According to www.moldpedia.com, they offer a little more insight.

Causes - Why and How Mold Grows in the Bathroom

It's very common for mold to be found in bathrooms. One obvious reason why is that there's lots of water and humidity in the bathroom. Frequently running water in the bathroom basin, the bathtub and the shower creates wet surfaces and puddles of water. If you don't dry this moisture out quickly it can easily lead to mold growth. On top of this, when the water in the bathroom does dry out it evaporates into the air and increases the humidity. Steam from the shower or a hot bath also makes the bathroom more humid. Since bathrooms are often not well ventilated the humidity tends to hang around and wet surfaces take a long time to dry out.

If you think you may have a mold disaster, give us a call today at (208) 523-5365.
