Make the grade in school indoor air quality

4/26/2018 (Permalink)

Kids and Clean Air

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, half of the national schools report poor indoor air quality and ventilation*

You can ensure you are taking proper and responsible steps to provide a healthy learning space. SERVPRO OF SUNRISE offer a number of services that can help you reduce Indoor Air Quality-related health risks and triggers for asthma and allergies.

  • Control moisture within 24-48 hours
  • Remedy sources of mold, like leaks
  • Clean HVAC systems
  • Inspect and change air filters
  • Clean duct systems regularly and after remodeling or additions

Why It's Important

  • Studies show that one-half of our nation's 115,000 schools have problems linked to indoor air quality (IAQ).
  • Students are at greater risk because of the hours spent in school facilities and because children are often susceptible to pollutants.
  • The health and comfort of students and teachers are among the many factors that contribute to learning and productivity in the classroom, which in turn affect performance and achievement.

What You Can Do

  • Ensure proper maintenance of the school's HVAC system to promote ventilation.
  • Install and regularly replace filters (high efficiency, if possible).
  • Install carbon monoxide detectors, especially near combustion sources (e.g., boilers, stoves, hot water heaters).
  • Be sure to consider indoor air quality in the design of a new school building.
  • Read the Ensure Good Ventilation component of EPA's model school environmental health program with actions for schools to improve the quality of indoor air.

Facilities Might Be The Reason For A Struggling Recycling Industry

Facilities Might Be The Reason For A Struggling Recycling Industry

Today's recycling industry is struggling in two areas, according to an article on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel website, and one may be the fault of facilities. First, the value of recovered waste products has dropped drastically over the past five years. Second, the effort required to extract the mistakes made by buildings' recycling programs has risen.

There are plastic shopping bags, chunks of styrofoam, food-contaminated containers and a litany of other items that recyclers must remove from recycling bins, according to Mike Taylor, Waste Management's director of recycling operations in Elkridge, Md.

Some cities are addressing the recycling struggles with education. Working with Waste Management, the city of Berwyn, Ill., launched an program called "Recycle Often, Recycle Right."

SERVPRO of Sunrise among other cleaning services supports or recycling duties.

New way to keep floors safe!

12/7/2016 (Permalink)

Building service contractors are no strangers to slips, trips, and falls. After all, they're the #2 cause of injuries in the U.S. and  account for 40% of workers-comp and liability claims to the tune of $70 billion per year. Wet, slippery floors can be a big, expensive problem.

Aside from using orange cones and ''Caution: Wet Floor'' signs, one of the ways to keep floors safe has been rubber-backed, carpeted mats (aka rental rugs, aisle runners, entrance mats, etc). Sure, they're an industry standard and they've been around for nearly 100 years, but there's just one problem: They don't really work.

Rubber-backed mats fail at stopping slips and trips. Pig Grippy floor mat is flat-out better at floor safety.

Carpet and Hard Floor Cleaning and Care

SERVPRO of Sunrise professionals use the latest IICRC training as well as state of the art equipment to remove entrapped soils from deep within your carpet's pile and backings. We clean area rugs and carpets.

 Please call SERVPRO of Sunrise at (954)748-7887 for all your restoration and cleaning needs.

The SERVPRO of SUNRISE Proven Duct Cleaning System is Cost Efficient.

Sweeping Away Years of Dust and Dirt - Helping Reduce Potential for Damage and Health Risks

Since the ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality, inspecting the ductwork should be a high priority. In most cases, the HVAC system has been operating for some time without much attention. Dirty ducts can circulate odors, contaminants such as MOLD and irritating dust throughout your building, office or home.

A routine part of a SERVPRO Franchise Professional's service like SERVPRO of SUNRISE, is inspecting the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit (HVAC) system and ductwork clean can potentially extend the life span of the equipment by allowing it to operate at peak condition, which may save you money.

Unlike the majority of duct cleaning services, SERVPRO of SUNRISE uses a Portable Ventilation & Air Duct Cleaning System to examine ductwork and make a clean sweep, removing years of dust and grime.

Duct Cleaning May Not Always be Necessary

SERVPRO of SUNRISE will inspect your HVAC system and ductwork and make recommendations about  the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This inspection can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your HVAC system and ductwork.

Dirty ducts can circulate contaminants such as MOLD.

In some circumstances, such as after a fire, smoke, or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the cleanup process. In these cases, your SERVPRO of SUNRISE Professional can often restore the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage condition.

SERVPRO of SUNRISE can pretest the fire damage and determine cleanability. 

THE SERVPRO System is the Difference - We Can Help:

  • Remediate Bacteria, Fungi and Mold
  • Reduce Potential for Mold Growth
  • Restore Peak Energy Efficiency
