Now is the right time to evaluate your home for any water damage issues that may have sprouted up and gone unnoticed due to the busyness of everyday life. As people are spending most if not all of their time indoors due to the stay-at-home order the governor issued last month it’s critical that you utilize this time to take into account the vulnerabilities of your home including mold damage. 

Mold is caused when moisture is allowed to build up on walls, ceilings, and flooring. Mold can occur anywhere in your home or place of business, however, it is more likely to occur in bathrooms, kitchens, and your basement. Bathrooms of course due to the possibility of water exiting the bathtub or toilet. Basements may also succumb to water damage and eventually mold due water infiltration from a storm. Broken and overwhelmed pipes may also burst to cause water damage to your basement possibly leading to mold in that part of your home. 

Mold remediation is one of the SERVPRO of Greensboro North specialties. We have years of expertise and experience in the field to best assess your circumstances. Providing your best solution to safeguard your property’s integrity as well as the health of your family. 

Stay tuned for more content chronicling the effects of mold damage on your property and your health. Reminding you of the importance of mitigating the effects quickly and efficiently.

The past several weeks the SERVPRO of Greensboro North team has been afforded a tremendous opportunity to partner with Cone Health; the leading healthcare provider in Guilford County as well as several surrounding counties. Assisting them to retrofit two of their ambulance buses with negative air environment systems in their efforts to provide an extra layer of safety for patients as they’re being transferred to the hospital for further care. 

Our team consistently seeks out new opportunities to partner with community influencers in helping to grow Greensboro. In stressful times such as these with a public health crisis and small businesses across the city experiencing huge disruptions in their ability to sustain their business, it’s important that we do our part. We’ve donated our time and resources in equipping the two Cone Health ambulances with the negative air environment systems to produce positive airflow in the bus, therefore, reducing the recycling of negative air in that contained environment. Presently, staffers at Cone Health are bleaching each ambulance after they transport a suspected COVID-19 patient to the hospital, however, we wanted to go a step further.  

With all of us working together will get through this stronger than we were before. Understanding how connected everything is in our community from the small mom-and-pop shops to one of the largest employers in Guilford County.

Eventually, life will return to some resemblance of normalcy in the coming weeks and months. Part of your business’ reintegration into society should include disinfecting your entire commercial space to help protect the health of your employees and those who will be visiting your property. The CDC recommends cleaning high touch services including desk, keyboards, and all sorts of office components. Don’t forget about your office bathroom in terms of cleaning too. Utilizing a hospital-grade disinfectant may equipt you to minimize the risk of bacteria and germs taking hold in your office bathroom. Kitchens and kitchenettes should also be regularly disinfected throughout the day. The handle to the refrigerator as well as the buttons on the microwave is regularly touched and therefore should be cleaned.

While these are great recommendations from the CDC you may find yourself as a property owner in need of a reputable commercial clean crew with expertise and experience in disinfecting large spaces. That’s where the SERVPRO of Greensboro North team comes in. Our crew is taking all the necessary precautions to help you create a safe and healthy environment for you to welcome both your employees and customers back when the time allows.
