2/8/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial Air Ducts, When Was Your Cleaned? In some cases of extreme buildup, it can increase efficiency as much as 40 percent!

According to the EPA:

You should consider having the air ducts in your home cleaned if-

  • There is substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts or on other components of your heating and cooling system.
  • There is an odd smell coming from the Duct system.
  • Ducts are infested with vermin, e.g. (rodents or insects)
  • Ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.

Some research also suggests that cleaning dirty cooling coils, fans and heat exchangers can improve the efficiency of heating and cooling systems.

Is cleaning my air ducts really that important?

During normal operation, dust can accumulate in ductwork that can lead to microbial growth. Duct cleaning has been shown to reduce this growth, as well as increase the efficiency of your system. In fact, in some cases of extreme buildup, it can increase efficiency as much as 40 percent!

SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland professionals routinely inspects the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC).  Keeping them clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can, in turn, save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe.

Time Is Money

Commercial Time Is Money Did You Know: After a Hurricane an average of every one out of three family owned businesses will not recover.

We work with your schedule

Here at SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland we understand how embarrassing it can be to have a damage repaired or cleaned. Especially for restaurants who need to maintain a certain level of cleanliness for their customers. Seeing a SERVPRO van in the front of the building may turn people away. 

Our solution is to make ourselves available 24/7 and preform with the utmost discretion. Our teams have been known to come in at night, after hours or work from the back of the store out of sight. This allows your business to continue to run as usual.

Getting back to normal as soon as possible

Occasionally there does come the disaster preventing a place of business to function entirely. Here along the Texas cost, that usually involves a Hurricane. For every day work is delayed is another day of lost revenue. Time is Money. If your entire business is shut down SERVPRO of Friendwood/Pearland will work around the clock to get you up and running again in the event of any disaster. After Hurricane Harvey, we had some businesses open within 3 days!

Commercial The Famous Buc-ee's Restrooms Buc-ee's gas stations can have more than 70 restroom stalls!

A household name across Texas, Buc-ee's is revered by Houstonian's as the best rest stop in all of America. What sets it apart from the others? Apart from its massive size, halls of candy and plethora of beef jerky, when people think of Buc-ee's they think of its world famous restrooms. 

How do they stay so clean? There is a staff fully dedicated to inspecting the bathrooms every hour on the hour 24/7. Buc-ee's has also risen the standards of 'clean' to much more than just a wipe down and a quick mop up. Toilets alone are cleaned every hour with more care than most people give their own johns. While this makes for a much less desired job, Buc-ee's had no problem compensating their employees with above minimum wage pay. 

For more information on Buc-ee's and their pristine toilets see the below links.

SERVPRO Takes To The Sky

Commercial SERVPRO Takes To The Sky Did you know there are over 360 high rises in Houston according to ipsf.io?

Here at SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland we are no stranger to working amongst the clouds. In fact, we have serviced many of the high rises in Downtown Houston and the Galleria area. What a lot of people do not know is that when there is a water damage on a higher floor that water will continue to travel down the longer it sits. It does not stop just because it hits a wall. The damage will continue to follow gravity even as it is being cleaned, so it must be repaired from top to bottom not bottom to top. For a skyscraper with a busted pipe on the highest floor, that could be as many as 40 or more floors to clean and repair! Our most recent high rise was a 22-story building that became saturated from a busted pipe near the roof. Luckily for them SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland was there and knew exactly how to handle this situation. After 2 days of cleaning and 3 days of drying, a total of 5 days the job, it was completed and life returned to normal.

Do you have a multi-story building such as an apartment or business office you would like the professionals to handle?

Spring Cleaning Is Here!

Commercial Spring Cleaning Is Here! Bluebonnets, our state flower begin to litter the Texas landscape in March but its peak season is in early April.

A new season is here in Texas and it offers an opportunity to refresh your work-place. Winter months normally mean windows stay shut, and dirt and grime from boots and heavy shoes gets tracked onto the floor. Spring cleaning isn't just for your home, you should do the same for your business. SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland offers plenty of services that can help your work and even your home start the season fresh!

Clean Your Air Ducts and HVAC

Your air ducts and HVAC unit work hard throughout the winter to keep your customers and employees warm. The ventilation system should be properly cleaned in the spring to make sure the air quality in your restaurant is not poor. If it has not been serviced for some time, your air could be circulating dust, pollen, odors and dirt and debris. Our technicians and equipment can clean out your system and make sure everyone breathes easier in the new season.

Kitchen Cleaning

Checking the hoods in the kitchen is usually a twice a year job, so what better time to start than for spring cleaning. Cleaning the pilots lights (if it is gas) is also a good idea. Just make sure to follow manufacturer’s instructions. Empty and sanitize the ice machine, and wipe down walls, ceilings and dry storage areas. SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland offers great commercial cleaning options as well, so give us a call if there are items you want the professionals to fix.

Rugs and Carpets

If your business uses rugs or carpet, springtime is a great time to freshen them as well. If the furniture in your work-place does not often move, tracks from normal foot traffic can start to wear down your rugs or carpets. When they become matted, these items also hold in an abundance of dust and debris that is carried in on shoes. A proper cleaning will get rid of the smells and the dust!

SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland is only a phone call away if you need a professional to help freshen up for spring.
