SERVPRO Honors Everyday Heroes with Sponsorship of SERVPRO First Responder Bowl

SERVPRO is proud to announce the inaugural SERVPRO First Responder Bowl being played at historic Cotton Bowl Stadium. The newly renamed bowl is designed to honor the sacrifice and service of the brave men and women who are the first line of defense in local communities when the unexpected or the unthinkable happens. Kickoff for the event, televised by ESPN, is December 26,2018 at 1:30 ET, featuring Boston College and Boise State University.

The SERVPRO First Responder Bowl will honor first responders including police officers, firefighters, EMS workers, correctional officers, search and rescue teams, dispatchers, security guards, federal agents, border patrol agents, and military personnel who have specialized training and are the first to arrive and provide help at the scene of an emergency. Event organizers planned to distribute 10,000 complimentary tickets to verified first responders and their families who sign up at www.firstresponderbowl.com

These complimentary tickets are possible thanks to corporate sponsors like SERVPRO and individual fans who choose to “Sponsor a Responder” with a $15 donation when they purchase their general admission tickets.

“The SERVPRO First Responder Bowl is a celebration of the commitment to service demonstrated by the everyday people who willingly put themselves in harm’s way to protect the lives and property of their neighbors,” said Sue Steen, CEO of SERVPRO Industries, Inc. “SERVPRO is honored to have this opportunity to shine a spotlight on all of these hard working first responders, and their families, and to recognize them for the heroes they are.”

SERVPRO is an industry leader and provider of fire and water cleanup and restoration services.

Hurricane Irma was one of the most devastating hurricanes in years. With many water damages across  Florida SERVPRO of Sunrise worked tirelessly along others to restore homes to their former glory. Helping people is the most rewarding work a person can do, this article proves why.

SERVPRO of Sunrise (FL)


“I want to send this letter of thanks and appreciation for the SERVPRO team of Sunrise. I was one of the many customers affected by hurricane Irma in Florida. Gustavo and his team went above and beyond to help me. Gustavo came to my house and did a thorough assessment of the water damage and quoted a fair and reasonable price. His team came to my house the next day and performed the work. Keep in mind that the Internet and power was down for Gustavo’s team. I will be a SERVPRO customer for life and will leave a positive review on the Better Business Bureau also.”

Green Products Mean Clean

SERVPRO of Sunrise offers quality, Green Cleaning Products Solutions for families in the Sunrise and surrounding communities. 

We would like to introduce our new line of Green Cleaning Products. SERVPRO® Industries, Inc. is a member of the EPA’s Design for Environment (EPA/DFE) initiative. As a member company, SERVPRO® can access the listing known formally as CleanGredients.

The EPA/DFE has established a set of criteria for formulating environmentally friendly cleaning products. With the assistance of larger chemical companies the EPA/DFE has put together a listing of safe cleaning components that can be used in Green cleaning formulations.
From the listing a formulation can be derived that incorporates “green” chemistry. The initiative is designed to allow chemical formulators a resource to formulate environmentally friendly cleaning products using environmentally friendly raw materials. We have formulated three Green Cleaning Products that will allow you to complete approximately all your cleaning tasks. The products are as follows:
Carpet & Upholstery Green Clean #251 is a product designed for cleaning both carpet and upholstery. It is truly a “one product does all” in that it can be used as a spotter, pre-spray, in-line cleaner for both truck mount and portable equipment, and in low-moisture bonnet cleaning. The product is pH neutral, biodegradable, contains no phosphates, solvents, dyes or fragrances.
All Surface Green Clean #250 is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional surface cleaners. It is pH neutral, contains no dyes or fragrances. All components are safe, non-toxic, phosphate free, Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) compliant and rapidly bio-degradable. The product is designed as a one product cleans all for surfaces that can be wiped or mopped. It can safely be used on walls, ceilings, countertops, floors, etc. The exclusive formulation contains both ionic and non-ionic surfactants that are naturally derived and provide excellent multi-functional cleaning.
Window Green Clean #249 is an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional glass cleaners. It is pH neutral, contains no dyes or fragrances. All components are safe, non-toxic, phosphate free, VOC-compliant and rapidly biodegradable. The product comes ready to use and is formulated with soft water to eliminate spotting and streaking.
Two areas the EPA/DFE does not address that are common in our restoration tasks are disinfectants and deodorizers. Disinfectants are “kill” agents and not considered green per the EPA/DFE. The EPA does though classify disinfectants by the overall toxicity. The lowest toxicity disinfectants get a rating of category 3. SERVPRO® provides Sporicidin® as a low toxicity disinfectant and it carries the EPA’s lowest toxicity rating of category 3. Therefore in the course of Green Cleaning it is recommended Sporicidin® be used for your disinfecting requirements. The final area is Deodorization and the problem is the fragrances used in these products can cause reactions with certain individuals. The EPA/DFE does not currently have “Green” fragrances listed. SERVPRO® provides air scrubbers with activated charcoal to serve as a “Green” method of deodorization. This method will scrub the odor particles from the air and trap them in the activated charcoal filter.

5 Ways to Burglarproof Your Home While on Vacation

7/18/2018 (Permalink)

While you're away on vacation, a criminal may take advantage of this time to break and enter. The last thing you need while you're trying to relax is to wonder whether your home is safe. From leaving a timed light on to make it "look like you're home" to having a friend collect newspapers, here are the top five tips to safeguard your home.

1. Get an Alarm System

If you don't already have one, this is an easy way for peace of mind while you're away. Just by doing a bit of research, you can find an alarm system that works for you. Remember that thieves are also experts at their "jobs," and they know how to tell a fake alarm sign from a real one. If you are traveling often, consider installing a security camera near any entrances.

2. Take Care of Your Mail

An overflowing mailbox is a big sign to burglars that no one's been home for a while, making your house an easy target. Ask a friend or a neighbor to help you collect your mail; you can return the favor the next time they are away. Another option is to use USPS's Request Hold Mail Service to halt delivery while you're away.

3. Double-Check Before You Leave

This one might seem obvious, but it is still very important to do. Before you leave, walk around your house and make sure all the windows and doors are locked. It's also a good idea to shut your blinds and curtains so burglars can't see all the valuables you've got inside your house.

4. Let Your Neighbors Know When You'll Be Gone

Not only can your neighbors help keep an eye out for you, but they can also be a huge help with shoveling snow or mowing the lawn if you're gone for quite a while. Another idea is to ask a neighbor to park in your driveway to make it seem like someone is regularly coming home. And remember to look out for your neighbors when they go on vacation so the whole neighborhood will be safer.

5. Simulate Normal Light and Sound Patterns Using Timers

If you've seen Home Alone, one of the most iconic scenes is when Kevin is making a fake party to scare off the burglars. He uses cardboard shadow puppets, loud music, and lighting to make it seem like there are a lot of people inside the house. This is the same kind of idea but a bit simpler. You can buy a timer to turn on a light at night and do the same with a TV or radio.

On Vacation

- Make sure your home is secure, all deadbolts locked: lights left on timers, deliveries cancelled or being collected by a trusted neighbor who has your travel schedule.

- Take only the credit card and other cards that you will absolutely need. Carry traveler's checks instead of cash. Record information on those cards and any valuable equipment (e.g.,camcorders, cameras, and CD players) that you take with you. Take a copy along and leave one with a friend or family member.

- Study up in advance on your vacation destination. Know where you want to go and how you want to get there. Ask hotel personnel about the safety of areas off the regular tourist path. 

- Don't leave valuable in view in the car-your own or a rental. Leave them in the trunk or, better still, in your room.

- Make sure everyone in your party-adults, teens, children-has the name, address, and phone numbers of the place you are staying and carries that information along at all times.

- Set up rules for each day's outing on where and how you'll link up if you become separated.

- Don't leave rooms unlocked in your lodgings. Insist that everyone carry his or her key when outside the room.
