Utilizing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Why it's important
When major events like the COVID-19 pandemic strike, everyone begins to see the importance of those workers that are fighting on the front lines to keep us all safe. While they are doing so much to ensure the safety of others, what precautions are being taken to ensure their safety? The answer is simple: PPE.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is used most notably to ensure the safety of our technicians and customers as well as ensuring proper sanitation of the current property. Our staff is thoroughly trained in the correct knowledge and use of PPE. This is a top priority for us here at SERVPRO® because, without our trained technicians, we can't complete these tough jobs for our customers.
The use of PPE allows our workers to focus and feel safe on the job, rather than worrying about the possible exposure to toxins or other biologic material. If our staff knows they are safe, they can provide the best possible service to each of our customers. We at SERVPRO® of Pike, Floyd, and Knott Counties value the safety of our employees and others when we're on the job. So next time you wonder why all of that equipment is necessary, remember that we couldn't do our jobs safely and effectively without it!

Commercial Mold Growth
Don't let commercial damages get you down!
Damage to your commercial property can often times be more severe than residential due to the large scale of these facilities, but there's no need to stress: SERVPRO® of Pike, Floyd, and Knott Counties is here to make your damage look "Like it never even happened."
The professionals here at SERVPRO® know there are several places you could find mold lurking in your facility. Here are some common places to be on the lookout for mold growth within your commercial business:
- Bathrooms: Mold often begins growing in these spaces due to the water and condensation almost always present in bathrooms, more specifically in places like between grout of tiles in the shower and/or bathroom walls.
- Exterior doors: By sealing an exterior door of your facility improperly, you are allowing any-and-all moisture from the outside to make its way in. This allows mold to collect and grow easily.
- Windows: Just like exterior doors, if a window is sealed improperly moisture from outside travels through and is exactly what mold needs to thrive. In addition, these improperly sealed windows could serve as a breeding ground for mold spores which are not something you want in your commercial business.
Don't let mold damage go unnoticed! If you suspect mold damage in any of your commercial facilities, give us a call at our office today at (606) 886-3826. We have all the necessary tools to inspect and resolve your possible mold damages!

This free scope of your buildling includes us coming to your facility and taking about 30 minutes to walk through your facility and helping to locate and document with pictures and location notes where all your emergency shut offs are located. We take the information that you provide us in regards to emergency key contacts name, phone numbers and/or emails that you provide. Along with emergency responder information, so that you know local police station or firefighter information.
We then compile everything you have provided with a secure log in. You can then access the information from any mobile device or a computer. We can add any additional information that you see that you would like to add.
Another plus side to this type of emergency readiness profile --is that it can also assist in letting us know where to park in case of an emergency and where to put a dumpster if an emergency happens.

Commercial Water Damage
Most businesses think it will never happen to them, until it does.

It has information that you will not think you need until an emergency occurs in your business.
There are water shut off and electric shut-off tags available through SERVPRO.

HVAC Cleaning for Your Commercial Property

National Preparedness Month Focuses Home and Business Owners on Advance Planning for Disaster Recovery

SERVPRO offers property owners no-cost tools for preparing a disaster readiness plan
Prestonburg, KY (Grassroots Newswire) <Date>—Each September, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sponsors an awareness event—National Preparedness Month (http://www.ready.gov/September)—to encourage both home and business owners to review and update their emergency preparedness and business and life continuity plans. Julie Roberts, owner of SERVPRO® of Pike, Floyd, & Knott Counties, encourages Prestonsburg and Pikeville property owners to take advantage of the information available from FEMA, because advance planning is critical in dealing with and recovering from the unexpected.
“Most home and business owners have taken basic precautions to protect life and property in the event of an emergency like flooding, fire, wind damage, or even malicious attacks,” said Roberts. “In many cases, building codes require clearly marked emergency exits, fire extinguishers, fire and flood drills, and similar preparations. But the missing link for many property owners is a comprehensive emergency plan that provides first responders with the information they need to deal with the emergency quickly and effectively, like the location of shut-off valves, fire suppression system controls, and emergency contact numbers.”
SERVPRO offers tools for both commercial and residential property owners to help address this problem. Business and home owners alike can download the free SERVPRO READY app, and store time-critical contact and property information electronically, in advance, where it can be accessed with a mobile device in seconds if disaster strikes. In addition, when a business designates their local SERVPRO Franchise Professional as their disaster mitigation and restoration provider, SERVPRO professionals will conduct a no-cost assessment of the facility and assist the owner in completing a comprehensive Emergency READY Profile® (ERP). The ERP includes information about emergency contact numbers, priority and high/risk areas, shut-off valve locations and more that can then be stored in the READY app.
“The most effective response to any emergency is a fast response,” says Roberts, “and that means having critical information available and ready to access at a moment’s notice. FEMA statistics* show that as many as 40 percent of businesses never reopen after a major flood disaster. Minimizing downtime and repairs with a quick, effective response effort can help prevent this type of outcome for businesses and can also help families put their homes and lives back on track in less time and with less stress. Creating a READY profile in advance with SERVPRO’s no-cost tools is well worth the time.”
SERVPRO® of Pike, Floyd, & Knott Counties specializes in disaster restoration, cleanup and repair services, helping to remediate damage, making it “Like it never even happened,” for both commercial and residential customers.

Franchise Named CAPA Mentor
SERVPRO of Pike, Floyd, & Knott Counties is honored to announce that we have been named one of 35 franchises recognized as a Commercial Accounts Program Mentor. As the SERVPRO brand grows, our reputation has changed from a residential fire and water restoration company to a restoration company that is “Ready for Whatever Happens”.
Because of this success, both locally and nationally, the need for standardized systems to help develop and deliver consistency in the commercial marketplace for disaster recovery services exists. It has been inspiring to be able to help develop these systems, the training, and help utilize innovative software, sales principles, and structured business practices needed to help establish a Commercial Accounts Program nationally. It is even more rewarding to be able to help assist franchises through this mentorship program who are newer to commercial disaster recovery, and may need help.
We have committed to help any SERVPRO franchise who selects us as a Commercial Accounts Program Mentor with any assistance needed on a commercial loss, regardless of size. From managing and producing these losses to scoping, sales, estimation, or resource management, our local team is “Ready for Whatever happens”. Our team believes in the unilateral vision from our corporate office that these losses need to be structured and systematic, and consistent from coast to coast.
We are committed to using our knowledge, gained right here in Central and Eastern Kentucky, to help those who have clients in need. We want to take the time to thank each of our clients, both residential and commercial alike, for all of the support given to us over the years. Without you, our passion of serving those int heir time of need could not happen, and we are eternally grateful.
