Take your customers and employees opinions into account when planning a renovation. Their surroundings play a huge role in their emotions and the way they feel within the space.Employees and customers will appreciate the updated
look and feel to the space.

Business fire

Fire Causes around $10 Billion In Damage Per Year according to the "Burden of Tobacco in your Workplace, page 1 by tobaccofreetippecanoe.org"

Fire safety tips for the workplace are as important as fire tips for the home! Here are some tips for businesses:

Eliminate workplace fire hazards.

  • Replace damaged electrical outlets, cords, cables, etc.
  • Be mindful of overloaded outlets and circuits.
  • Fire exits need to be free of any obstacles.

Prepare for emergencies!

  • Follow workplace protocol and guidelines.
  • Ensure that smoke alarms and sprinkler systems are installed and working properly.

Employers should follow these workplace fire safety tips:

Invest in smoke detectors for every room or office.

When Vandalism Strikes!

1/2/2019 (Permalink)

Graffiti!

Graffiti is a form of visual communication, usually illegal, involving the unauthorized marking of public space by an individual or group. Although the common image of graffiti is a stylistic symbol or phrase spray-painted on a wall by a member of
a street gang, some graffiti is not gang-related. Graffiti can be understood as antisocial behaviour performed in order to gain attention or as a form of thrill seeking, but it also can be understood as an expressive art form.

Graffiti can also be an eyesore on your business and can keep people from entering or using your business!

Does your business or home need some TLC on the outside?

Did you know that SERVPRO will come out and clean up any graffiti or vandalism on your business or home? In addition to removing spray-painted graffiti from exterior walls, we can also
clean driveways, walkways, asphalt, metals, wood, glass, plastic, and masonry.

Call 1-603-298-6942 today if your business or home need a freshening up for the New Year!

Is Dirty Ductwork the Culprit?

10/17/2018 (Permalink)

Ductwork

Estimates made by the World Health Organization say that poor indoor air
quality cost $60 Billion in employee sick leave and lost production.

The ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air
quality, inspecting the ductwork must 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 office building.

Another problem that affects ductwork in commercial businesses is when input
and output vents become blocked by boxes, equipment, furniture or dust. This
reduces the free flow of air through ducting systems and, by association,
reduces air circulation throughout the entire commercial building.

Part of your responsibility to the tenants, workers, and/or students who work
and play in your buildings includes proper maintenance and prompt response to
any situation that could cause illness or health concerns.

SERVPRO of Lebanon/Hanover/Littleton can help:

  • Remediate bacteria, fungi and mold
  • Reduce potential for mold growth
  • Restore peak energy efficiency
  • Eliminate offensive odors

SERVPRO of Lebanon/Hanover/Littleton will inspect your HVAC system and
ductwork. This inspection can save you money and provide peace of mind on the
health of your HVAC system and ductwork.
