Storm Damage Painting Your Peoria Home After A Storm Painting In Peoria

Sometimes the last thing you want to do after a storm repair is paint!

Storm season is upon us and sometimes we luck out and have minimal damage that involves only a few patch jobs to a wall or the exterior side of the house. 

After you finish repairing the damage you really do not feel like painting it too, it can be a real hassle if you do not have the right equipment.

Lucky for you SERVPRO has the manpower and resources to do all sorts of different sized jobs from one bedroom apartments to a 100 plus unit condo tower and everything in between.

So the next time you just do not feel like painting that front wall for the third time or slapping on another coat to the second floor bedrooms because a tree came through the wall, give SERVPRO a call!

Commercial Summer Office Declutter Tips In Peoria Declutter for productivity!

Declutter That Office Now!

Here are a few tips and tricks to help declutter your office.      

Divide Your Workplace Into Zones: Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions. 

Keep Only What You Need At Arm's Length: Boxes of pens, stacks of papers and old coffee cups need to go. Rid your desk of visual clutter by paring down the items on top to the essentials only. 

Create A Daily Paper System: Consider creating hanging files or baskets labeled "To Read", "To Do", and "To File". 

Sort Your Catch-All Drawer: Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, like compartments for paperclips and rubber bands. 

Eliminate Digital Clutter: Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter. Organize digital files and your e-mail inbox just as you would paper files - with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders. 

Disinfect Regularly: Prevent the buildup of dust, dirt, food stains and fingerprints. Wipe down your desk, phone, keyboard, and monitor once a week with disinfecting wipes.

A clean office leads to more productivity, call us if you need some heavy hitting!

Hurricane Names For The Atlantic Season

Storm Damage Hurricane Names For The Atlantic Season Now you know!

Since a few weeks, ago was all about Hurricane Preparedness, we felt you should have a little more info about this year's Hurricane Season!

We know that hurricanes don't ever really get this far inland but it is always good to stay on top of natural disaster information whenever you can.

The National Hurricane Center generates lists of names, in alphabetical order, to be used for tropical storms and hurricanes.

As storms form, they are named in order of which they arrive. Thus the first tropical storm or hurricane of the year has a name that begins with "A" and the second is given the name that begins with "B." The lists contain hurricane names that begin from A to W, but exclude names that begin with a "Q" or "U."

There are six lists, so a name can recur once every six years so these names can not be used again until 2024. When a hurricane is especially memorable or devastating, that name is retired and another hurricane name replaces it.

Here are the names for the Atlantic Hurricane Season of 2018:

Alberto, Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene, Isaac, Joyce, Kirk, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty, Rafael, Sara, Tony, Valerie, and William.

If you sustain storm damage due to hurricanes or any other type of storm, call SERVPRO right away!

Water Damage Flooring Services In Peoria SERVPRO knows flooring!

Flooring is the foundation of a great home ... literally!

Flooring can be anything from carpet, wood, and concrete to other kinds of building materials but they are all subject to damage from water, fire and or mold.

When your flooring becomes damaged beyond repair you can try to fix it yourself and some people have a small level of success but you have to ask yourself do I know enough about the science of drying to make sure the flooring I'm putting down is going on a completely dry surface that will not become mold infested because I'm trapping moisture underneath and then have to completely redo the whole process again?

If you do know about moisture control and the science of drying, by all means, do that labor intensive time investing and all around not fun project yourself. If you do not think you can pull it off, call SERVPRO.

SERVPRO has the know-how and equipment to have your flooring project done right and fast!

This Week Is Hurricane Preparedness Week In Peoria

Storm Damage This Week Is Hurricane Preparedness Week In Peoria Hurricanes Can Be Deadly!

Hurricane Preparedness Week

Even though we rarely have to worry about Hurricanes, many of our resident's vacation in areas where there are significant threats.

From the desk of the Community Risk Reduction Officer for our local Fire Dept:

During Hurricane Preparedness Week, make sure you have a hurricane evacuation plan.

The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you're in a home that would be unsafe during a hurricane.

If you are, figure out where you'd go and how you'd get there if told to evacuate. You do not need to travel hundreds of miles. Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn't live an evacuation zone or unsafe home, and coordinate with them to use their home as your evacuation destination.

Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not permit them.

Find evacuation zones here: http://flash.org/hurricane-season/evacuation-zones/find-your-evacuation-zones.pdf.

And as always SERVPRO is here for you when the storm is over to help put your life back together!

Fire Clean Up In Peoria

Fire Damage Fire Clean Up In Peoria During A Fire, Stay Low For As Long As You Can!

Get low and crawl under the smoke to get out safely!

We asked the local Fire Department for some fire safety tips and ways to prevent extra harm from fires. The tip about getting low and crawling out of a home or building seems a little bit drastic or unnecessary until you start breathing in the smoke.

So many of the victims that deadly fires have consumed have passed out from breathing too much smoke, getting low gives someone a fighting chance to exit the building because smoke and heat rises.

So please if you are caught in a fire and you can make your way out, make sure you stay low and yes even crawl. It could be the difference between your life and your death.

You get out, we'll clean up!

If you have had fire damage in the Peoria area that needs to be cleaned up call SERVPRO to help put your life back together.
