Cleaning Exterior Pressure Wash In Peoria Get that fresh summer look!

Some tips on how to use a pressure washer this summer to blast away that year worth of dirt:

  • Choose a pressure washer that is best for the job. Different housing materials can withstand various water pressures.
  • Protect your house's exterior fixtures, like lights, landscaping shrubs, and plants, from harmful water pressure. Cover with drop cloths or plastic covering.
  • Manually scrub any visible dirt and grime from the surface you are power washing with a brush.
  • Mix the cleaning solution and fill the pressure washer's soap dispenser.
  • Connect a hose hooked to your water supply to the pressure washer.
  • Test how close you have to be to pressure wash a house by holding the pressure washer nozzle with both hands about 3 feet from the wall. Walk it in closer until you feel the spray is strong enough to remove dirt but not cause any damage.
  • Start at the top of the house and move down just like when you paint. 
  • Rinse from the top down with plain water. Allow the house to dry at least 2 days before painting.

If this sounds like too much work just call SERVPRO, we will do it for you.

Fire Damage Summer Safety Tips In Peoria Keep Summer Safe!

Peoria Summers are filled with barbecues, parades and fireworks displays; but along with all the festivities are plenty of visits to emergency rooms. 

Consider the following tips to ensure your summer celebrations are disaster-free!

  • Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors.
  • The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
  • Keep children and pets away from the grill area.
  • Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.
  • Never leave your grill unattended. 
  • When using a charcoal grill, let the coals completely cool before disposing of in a metal container.
  • Anyone using fireworks or standing nearby should wear protective eyewear.
  • Do not try to re-light or handle malfunctioning fireworks. Keep a bucket of water nearby to fully extinguish fireworks that don't go off or in case of fire.
  • The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a public display conducted by trained professionals.

If a tragedy does strike your home in the form of fire damage, call SERVPRO right away (309) 637-7300!

Carpet Cleaning In Peoria

Commercial Carpet Cleaning In Peoria Clean Carpet Makes A Great First Impression!

Even before your sales team greets a customer, they are greeted by the appearance of your business.

Make no mistake about it; first impressions are an important part of the sales process. When the first impression is that of a clean and organized business, it puts your customer at ease, and it makes it easier for them to say yes to your Peoria business!

That’s why regular commercial carpet cleaning is so important. Maintaining your office carpet in pristine condition lets your customers and sales team know that you’ve taken care of all the details, down to the carpet.

A clean carpet is also hygienic. Accumulation of dirt and grime along with pollen and animal dander that is tracked in by foot traffic can make for an unpleasant and allergenic work environment.

Regular carpeting cleaning is also an opportunity for spot-checking for damaged and worn areas in the carpeting, potentially avoiding accidents.

Businesses should aim for focused carpet cleaning about once every quarter for high traffic areas in addition to the twice-yearly deep cleaning of the entire covered area. 

Call SERVPRO to schedule your home or business carpet cleaning today!

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!
