Start to Plan, Prepare and Prevent

Did you know that wildfire season is year-round in many parts of the country? What can you do to help support and protect your family?

Wildfire Planning

May is Wildfire Awareness month. As the weather becomes warmer and wild-land vegetation, or fuels, begin to dry out, it becomes the most imperative time to plan for the wildfires.

in wildfires, embers cause most home ignitions. Residents can harden their homes and minimize their property damage. This helps reduce putting any  firefighter and their communities at risk. Hardening your home helps to create defensible space on private property. 

Preparing your home

Make your home survivable and community adaptable to wildfires. Learning how to mitigate wildfire risks around your property and community are essential pieces of information to have.

Preventing wildfires from occurring

Public plays a valuable role in prevention of wildfires. The national average is high and most of these fires can be prevented.

Preventable any wildfire can threaten lives, property, and our natural resources. Whether it is properly extinguishing a campfire or keeping your vehicle maintained to prevent sparks- a few simple steps can be taken to make sure wildfires don't happen.

Check out on-line resources to learn about wildfire prevention in your state or area. 

SERVPRO of Coeur d'Alene offers our services to make sure our community and firefighters are supported.  

Why Hospital Grade Disinfectants for my Commercial Building?

Why are Hospital Grade Disinfectants Important?

06/09/2020

Hospital grade disinfectants clean and reduce the risk of infections. Although often they are associated with medical facilities, hospital grade disinfectants have become increasingly popular! They’re designed to kill germs and sanitize surfaces in areas where bacteria continues to grow. The use of hospital grade disinfectants in cleaning efforts has many benefits.

A large reason for using hospital grade disinfectants is their ability to significantly reduce or even eliminate the incidence of infection. Infection is a serious health threat that can involve transmission of diseases from person to person. Bacteria cannot always be eliminated entirely with typical household cleaners. For example, a bathroom may look relatively “clean” despite a really unpleasant smell that persists. Hospital grade disinfectants can leave surfaces sparkling clean while killing these bacteria’s. These disinfectants are broad spectrum and can be used for multiple areas, from tile and glass to stainless steel and laminate flooring. This makes them usable on just about any area, including bathrooms, offices, kitchens, cafeterias, etc. Hospital grade disinfectants are some of the most efficient and popular products in the professional cleaning industry. They are also the solution for recurring pathogenic issues that often occur in and around bathrooms.

SERVPRO has EPA approved, hospital grade disinfectants for your cleaning needs.

Disinfectants VS Sanitizers

Disinfectants VS Sanitizers

Is there a difference???

April 20, 2020

In today's world, it seems to be very different than just a few months ago. So many are living in fear of the future, while others are just trying to understand how they can keep themselves and their families safe. The Coronavirus has affected us all in one way or another. In this blog, we hope to share some information with you that will help you be more informed so that you and your loved ones stay safe and happy!

What is a disinfectant and what does it do? Disinfectants help in KILLING a wide range of microorganisms. Then what are sanitizers for? Sanitizers generally just REDUCE bacteria. Cleaners on the other hand, do neither. The main purpose of a cleaner is to remove DIRT from surfaces and materials. 

Sanitizers are certified through the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for bacteria only. Disinfectants can also be certified to KILL viruses, mold, mildew and fungi. At SERVPRO of Coeur d'Alene we have hospital grade disinfectants to help with your needs (for home or business).

SERVPRO of Coeur d'Alene offers its support to the community with various services like fogging, spray and wipe and rental equipment (such as: air scrubbers, ozone machines, industrial fans and dehumidifiers). Our hope at SERVPRO of Coeur d'Alene is to educate and help our North Idaho area rise above the fears that are out there and prevent more spread of the virus.
