When Do We Board-Up?

6/7/2022 (Permalink)

When owning a business, there are a few events that might occur unexpectedly, but not uncommonly.  One of these occurrences is vandalism, specifically graffiti.  Graffiti is one of those things that starts out as a joke performed by a few rebellious kids, to a malicious act that the whole town seems to be participating in.  Once the first spray of spray paint has been applied, it's almost like a big target on the wall of your business.  Because of this, when SERVPRO is called in for a vandalism job, we tend to proceed with a board up.  This means boarding up as many doors and windows as possible to prevent further damage from happening.  This will protect the glass entrances as well as products inside of your store.  

We will also proceed with a board-up when a storm or fire has occurred and leaves parts of your building exposed to the outside.  It minimized property loss by securing the facility and protecting restorable or reusable materials.  A disaster can leave your business vulnerable to things such as unwanted entry, animal invasion, and further vandalism.

As always, if your business is in need of vandalism, fire, water, or storm cleaning, give us a call!  You can contact us at 817-596-8714

What is a Pack Out?

5/24/2022 (Permalink)

When a disaster strikes your home, SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties offers a variety of services to help quicken the recovery process.  One of these services is called a pack out.  If your home were to flood due to a storm, for example, one of the first steps we would take is packing up and moving all of the content within the affected area in order to salvage what we can as well as empty the space to begin the remediation process.  We also offer to clean and disinfect the salvageable contents that we packed to ensure that they won't experience secondary damage in the future.  If you have experienced a water loss, give us a call! 817-596-8714

Spring Has Sprung, Here Comes the Pollen

5/3/2022 (Permalink)

spring Here's the deal: pollen is a problem.

We are passing the middle of spring right now which means that it's officially prime time for pollen allergies.  In honor of this righteous timing, let's go over a few ways to rid your home of pollen.  But first, here's some fun facts about pollen that you may not have known.

Fun Facts About Pollen

  • Pollen is the snowflake of spring.  It comes in many different shapes, sizes, and colors.  Though we associate pollen with the color yellow, it can also be a vibrant red, green, purple, white, or brown.
  • Flowering plants aren't the main culprit when it comes to pollen allergies.  Flower pollen is transferred through insects that carry it from flower to flower.  This tends to keep the pollen more contained compared to plants that transfer pollen by releasing it into the air such as ragweed, oak, elms, and maple trees. 
  • We tend to think that bumble bees are the only carrier of pollen, However, insects such as butterflies, ants, beetles, and flies are also common pollen carriers.  Mammals, such as lemurs, are also pollen carriers.

Now that we've covered a few fun facts about pollen, lets dig into allergy control.  Pollen spreads like wildfire and while there is no sure way to completely prevent pollen allergies, there are a few ways that you can keep them under control.

How To Reduce Pollen Allergies at Home

  • Dust smart.  As mentioned before, pollen spreads like wildfire.  The most effective way to control pollen through dusting is to use a microfiber towel or duster and dust from top to bottom.
  • Change your air filters.  Changing your air filters regularly, especially when you notice your allergies kicking in, is another effective way to control pollen allergies.  Air filters get packed with dust, hair, and other common allergens that may make your seasonal allergies worse.  Investing in a filter that is made to catch common allergens may also help in this situation.
  • Washing your pillow cases.  Pollen can get caught in your hair and your clothes as soon as you step inside.  If you lay down for a nap as soon as you come home from work, there may be pollen stuck to your bedding and pillow cases.  
  • Splurge on the right vacuum cleaner.   Vacuums are expensive, I know, but investing in a good one may be worth it.  A decent vacuum will automatically filter pollen and dust to ensure that it doesn't get spit back into the house.  Professionals recommend a bag-less vacuum with a HEPA filter.
