Pandemic Protocols

New Buffalo, COVID, sanitize, pandemic Box of trash.

Every business has a set of COVID protocols in place to keep people safe.  Right?  They discussed what they could do to sanitize themselves, work areas, bathrooms, vehicles etc.  Everybody has been doing their part to wear a mask, socially distance and sanitize touch points.  Well, almost everybody.  

Don't let your guard down please.

On a recent commercial COVID sanitizing job we were given a number of vehicles to sanitize because the drivers tested positive and were sent home.  The employees would distance at work but ride in the same vehicle together at the lunch break.  And they left multiple items that carry the virus in the van.  That's just not thinking and lazy.

We are all tired and frustrated by the Pandemic rules and regulations.  But let's remember that we are responsible for protecting our family and co-workers.  

Storms bring wind and flooding rains.

Smoke Damage

Stevensville, smoke, furnace Air scrubber in basement

SERVPRO of Berrien County is always "Here to Help" when Fire, Water, Mold or even COVID affect the operations of your business.

A Southwest Michigan medical clinic had some old furnaces in the basement that overheated.  The 30 year old bearings ground to a halt creating enough smoke to alert the fire department.  They showed up in great form and stopped any further damage.

Luckily, the clinic didn't have to shut down but there was enough smoke odor that all the windows and doors were open.  Fortunately it was a warm Michigan spring day.  

SERVPRO of Berrien County was called to mitigate the smoke damage/odor.  We set one large air scrubber next to the source for the weekend.  Odor was not detectable on Monday. 

The customer was grateful for our immediately response and solution for the problem.

Fire damage

Coloma, fire, boardup, smoke Blue house with chimney fire

SERVPRO of Berrien County is "Here to Help" when your home has any kind of fire or smoke damage.  

Chimney fires are a common source of damage when people don't operate them correctly.  Always make sure the flue is open and drafting before starting the fire.  It is also a good idea to have a chimney vendor clean any residue or creosote from the inside for safe fires.

This home's chimney got too hot and burned the wood structure around the chase.  The fire department was a mile away and was able to extinguish the flames and minimize smoke damage.

SERVPRO was called in to secure the openings with boards to keep the weather out.  Minimal smoke damage was cleaned and the exterior rebuilt.  

A very lucky and satisfied customer.
