Your Safety = Our Focus

3/29/2021 (Permalink)

Blood, bodily fluids and other biohazards in Tuscaloosa and Northport can endanger anyone who comes in contact with them. Even trace amounts so small that they cannot be seen with the naked eye can pose serious health risks. When your business or home has been contaminated, how do you make it safe again? It's simple: Just rely on the professionals at SERVPRO® of Tuscaloosa for top-notch biohazard cleanup and restoration services. 


Avoiding Health Risks 
Is it necessary to seek professional assistance in cleaning up a location impacted by crime, trauma or death? With the risks posed by blood-borne pathogens and dangerous communicable diseases, cleaning a scene contaminated with biohazards like blood is a perilous undertaking for anyone who lacks the proper training and equipment. It is unpleasant to imagine, but blood and bodily fluids are prone to splattering so that minute amounts can affect a wide area. The air at these scenes can be hazardous since small particles can become airborne if dried material is disturbed. Anything removed from the scene must also be disposed of properly to avoid spreading the contamination. Ultimately, the best way to make sure that a place is once again safe is to use a professional organization like SERVPRO® that is experienced and highly-trained in biohazard restoration.

Preventing Legal Repercussions 
As if the health risks created by biohazards are not dire enough, failure to have a contaminated space properly cleaned can also have serious legal consequences. There are regulations and laws regarding how biohazards are handled that must be followed. These rules are designed to safeguard everyone, and ignorance is not considered an acceptable excuse for disregarding them. Individuals and businesses that do not follow these rules may find themselves facing hefty fines. They might even be held liable if someone else is injured by their actions. Using a professional team that understands what is required to comply with the various rules and regulations governing biohazards in your area can shield you from both health risks and legal issues.

Focusing on Your Safety
At SERVPRO® of Tuscaloosa, we are committed to the well-being of our customers. Offering emergency services 24 hours a day, we rapidly respond whenever you request our assistance. Our technicians follow the protocols established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency, so you can have confidence in knowing they have the expertise and training to remove all biohazards and dispose of them properly.

As biohazard restoration professionals, we can often salvage items that others might have to discard, and we ensure that any material that does need to be removed from your location is disposed of appropriately.

Dealing with a crime, trauma or death is undoubtedly difficult, but you can depend on SERVPRO® of Tuscaloosa for courtesy, empathy, and the quality biohazard cleanup and restoration services that you deserve.

Prevent Fire Damage Before it Happens!

2/25/2021 (Permalink)

In Tuscaloosa and Northport, commercial fires are often the most devastating reality that a property owner will have to deal with. In addition to wreaking havoc on your property, fires can force you to relocate temporarily so you can maintain running your business while the restoration process is being completed. Fortunately, property owners who access and implement high-quality safety practices can often avoid the devastation and destruction that results from Tuscaloosa and Northport commercial fires. Here's a brief outline to learn how you can protect your property: 

1. Install Automatic Fire Sprinklers.

As many authorities know, having an automatic fire sprinkler on your property can reduce the risk of fire by up to 71%. Additionally, sprinklers can decrease your insurance premium. To keep your sprinkler in excellent condition, be sure that it is not blocked by dirt or paint. Also, be sure to inspect regularly your main control valve so that it is not left off. Finally, be sure that you take the precautions necessary to prevent the pipe from freezing.  

2. Conduct Fire Emergency Training.

Each of your employees should undergo fire safety training. The training can help prevent your staff members from being victimized. Here are a few subjects that should be covered in emergency training: 

Hazard Recognition

Keep all combustible chemicals and materials away from heat-generating and electrical equipment. 

Prevention

Inspect your power sources regularly and don't overload your extension cords and outlets.  

Response

Teach your employees how to respond when a fire breaks out. Some subjects that should be covered include how to perform an organized evacuation, operate the fire extinguisher, and set the fire alarm. 

Other issues that should be involved in the training include:

• Breathing Apparatus Training

• Fire Extinguisher Training

• Confined Space Entry Training

• First Aid Training

• General Staff Emergency Awareness Training

• Evacuation Exercise  

Also, make sure that your employee team officials undergo the following fire emergency response training: 

• Fire Safety Officer Training

• Fire Safety Adviser Training

• Chief and Deputy Chief Warden Training

• Emergency Control Organization Warden Training

• Spill Response Training

• Lay Flat Hose Training 

3. Call SERVPRO® of Tuscaloosa immediately at 205-553-8377

Storm Damage Prevention

2/25/2021 (Permalink)

Do April showers bring May flowers? The rainy season can lead to flooding conditions in Northport and Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The following tips will help reduce the impact spring floods have on you and your property! 

  • Advance Preparation

Prepare in advance with a SERVPRO® Emergency Ready Profile® (ERP). Our convenient mobile app stores all your utility and emergency response information in one place, so you can access this information from your smartphone or computer.

  • Watch for Pooling Water 

Look for places around your property where water pools, and channel it away from buildings. Make sure gutters and downspouts are clear of debris and they are directing water as intended.

  • Maintain Sump Pump 

If you have a sump pump, check to be sure it is operational before water starts rising. Consider a back-up generator to ensure your pump works when you need it most. Contact your insurance agent to add coverage in case your sump pump fails. 

  • Raise Storage Goods 

Use shelving and/or pallets to keep storage items off the floor to reduce the impact of small floods. In many situations, raising boxes just a few inches will be enough to keep storage goods above the waterline. 

  • Cut Power if Necessary 

As rising water approaches the level of electrical outlets, you risk having a live current flow through all the water. Cut the power if you can safely do so without standing in water. Otherwise, evacuate as soon as you can and contact an electrician to cut the power before you go back in for recovery.

  • Keep Storm Drains Clear

If you see water pooling around a storm drain, the drain may be clogged with debris. Clearing the debris will help keep the water flowing away from your neighborhood. 

  • Consider Flood Insurance 

Homeowner's insurance will not cover floods; you must purchase a separate policy for flood protection. When all else fails, flood insurance will provide you the means to respond to an unfortunate catastrophic flooding event.

  • Be Aware on the Road 

Be careful when driving during spring storms, especially when you hear flash flood warnings! Never drive into a fully submerged roadway. The water surface will be at the same level as the pavement you can see. This view can deceive you into thinking the water is shallow because you cannot see how the road dips under the surface. Beware of the water on the road! 

  • Act Fast 

When a flood happens, you need to act fast to dry out any wet items, particularly structural materials like walls and flooring. Call SERVPRO® of Tuscaloosa at 205-553-8377 to extract the water. Our franchise service professionals have the training and experience to make flood damage “Like it never even happened.”

Experience your property at its finest! 

We appreciate that your home or business is more than property — it’s an investment. And we’re proud to deliver services that are worthy of it. SERVPRO® of Tuscaloosa proudly offers exterior property cleaning, fire and water damage restoration, low-pressure roof cleaning, wood and deck pressure washing, interior power washing, and water extraction for commercial and residential clients! 

Residential

Residential services include exterior sidings, driveways, sidewalks and patios, fences, and roofs. Regular cleaning such as pressure washing, patio washing, and concrete or driveway washing can help to prevent premature aging which reduces maintenance costs and saves you money. When you compare the relatively low price of proper residential pressure wash cleaning to the high cost of home repairs or even replacement, it is easy to see why homeowners choose to have this type of work done on a regular basis. Not to mention, it just plain looks better when it’s clean. 

Commercial

We offer our commercial property owners comprehensive power washing solutions. No two businesses are alike. That’s why we provide tailored commercial services that will fulfill your needs. Shopping malls, banks, restaurants, and convenience stores typically require unique services at different times. We take pride in offering flexible service plans and scheduling to accommodate your needs.

Let us keep your business looking picture-perfect. We always ensure that our work is implemented at a time that will minimize interference with your business operations. What’s more, our team will always come to your property with the specialized commercial services equipment needed to complete the task and provide professional results. 

Apartment and Homeowners Association (HOA)

At some point during every interview, a potential resident will tour the neighborhood. The first impressions that are made during this tour can go a long way towards filling the unit or letting it sit empty. Are the common areas and parking lots of your apartment complex or HOA community clean and inviting? What about the units themselves? Do they reflect a clean and properly maintained community?  If you have been looking for a company to handle all of your properties' exterior cleaning and maintenance needs look no further!

We have the experience and the equipment to get the job done right!
