This program will be developed based on your business type, size of space, amount of high frequency touchpoints, foot traffic and congestion points.

Clean – Based on your specific business needs, your location will undergo a thorough, deep clean, using exclusive cleaning products, according to protocols set forth by the CDC. Our employees have years of experience, and we will go beyond the scope of work that regular janitorial staff perform. Cleanup procedures generally include cleaning of porous and non-porous surfaces, disinfecting of non-porous surfaces, cleaning and disinfecting of equipment, tools, and/or supplies used for cleanup process, and disposal of hazardous materials.  In the event of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 event, we will be there cleaning within 24 hours to ensure you get back to business as quickly as possible.

Certify - Once your business location has been Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, you will gain access to proprietary signage, digital emblems, and other collateral that communicates that you’ve selected a higher standard of clean available to help protect your employees and customers.

Spring Cleaning In And Around Horry & Georgetown Counties

4/1/2019 (Permalink)

Its time to spruce up that home!

When it comes to "Spring Cleaning In And Around Horry & Georgetown Counties" we know a thing or two about how to be the most effective in your battle against dirt and grime here on the Grand Strand!

Here is where you start!

  • Wipe the walls and ceilings first. Doing this ensures the dirt and dust falls to the floor to be removed at a later time when you sweep and vacuum.
  • Dust and wipe all the counter/eye level surfaces. This also ensures that any dirt and dust from the wiped walls and ceilings also falls to the floors for sweeping and vacuuming or mopping.
  • Sweep, Mop and Vacuum the floors. Now that all the dirt and grime is where you want it, remove it with either your broom, mop or vacuum.
  • Clean your windows inside and out. Use different directions in case there are streaks and you can tell which side they are on to remedy it.
  • Clean all your upholstered furniture. Beat the dust out of removable pillows and cushions outside and then vacuum up and crumbs or dirt that has made its way into the cracks of your furniture.

Doing these 5 things at the minimum will have your home looking spring fresh in no time.

If you have a bigger task and can not handle it alone, call SERVPRO we can help!

Positive 1st Impressions Carpet Cleaning Horry Co

6/21/2018 (Permalink)

We Know Carpets!

Even before your sales team greets a customer, they’re greeted by the appearance of your business.

Make no mistake about it; first impressions are an important part of the sales process. When the first impression is that of a clean and organized business, it puts your customer at ease, and it makes it easier for them to say yes!

That’s why regular commercial carpet cleaning is so important. Maintaining your office carpet in pristine condition lets your customers and sales team know that you’ve taken care of all the details, down to the carpet.

A clean carpet is also hygienic. Accumulation of dirt and grime along with pollen and animal dander that is tracked in by foot traffic can make for an unpleasant and allergenic work environment.

Regular carpeting cleaning is also an opportunity for spot-checking for damaged and worn areas in the carpeting, potentially avoiding accidents.

Businesses should aim for focused carpet cleaning about once every quarter for high traffic areas in addition to the twice-yearly deep cleaning of the entire covered area. 

Call SERVPRO to schedule your home or business carpet cleaning today!

Dryer Vent Cleaning

6/27/2016 (Permalink)

Yearly maintenance is the key to clean ducts!

Are Your Ducts/Vents In Order? 

Your ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality.

Inspecting the ductwork in your facility or home should 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 building or home.

A routine part of SERVPRO's service is inspecting the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC). Keeping the HVAC system and ductwork clean can potentially extend the life span of the equipment by allowing it to operate at peak condition, which may save you money. Duct cleaning may not always be necessary. SERVPRO will inspect your HVAC system and ductwork and make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This inspection can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your HVAC system and ductwork.

In some circumstances, such as after fire, smoke or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the cleanup process. In these cases, your SERVPRO Professional can often restore the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage condition.

If you have a fuel burning furnace, stove or fireplace, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends they be inspected for proper functioning, and be serviced before each heating season to protect against carbon monoxide poisoning.

The SERVPRO Duct Cleaning System is proven and cost efficient. Unlike the majority of duct cleaning services, your SERVPRO Professional uses a portable ventilation and air duct cleaning system to examine ductwork and make a clean sweep, removing years of dust and grime.

  • The process begins by using patented equipment including a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the duct's shape and diameter while traveling through the duct, removing debris and filth before vacuuming begins.
  • Next, a powerful push-pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from the ducting to a 16-gallon container.
  • Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97 percent of the particles in the airstream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the indoor environment clean.
  • As an optional process, a sealant or coating product may be sprayed to address odor or microbial concerns.
  • Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.
  • For more information or to schedule a duct or dryer vent cleaning appointment, contact SERVPRO of Horry and Georgetown Counties at 843.236.6278.

    What Company Cleans Air Ductwork in Myrtle Beach SC?

    5/18/2016 (Permalink)

    It's Duct Cleaning not Duck Cleaning!

    We do Duct Cleaning not Duck Cleaning!

    Air Ducts and HVAC Cleaning to be specific.

    Duct Cleaning can lead to fewer allergies in your home or business, which in turn means less sick days, which allows for increased productivity.

    Dirty ductwork makes your HVAC system slower and less efficient. This will end up costing you more money down the line because your unit will have a shorter lifespan. Your unit will also not blow out as much so the limited airflow will cost you more money in energy bill because you will have to use the unit more often or at higher and lower temperatures.

    Do you really want years and years of dirt, pollen, dead skin cells, pet dander and hair flowing through your entire house on a daily basis? Just imagine how much easier life will be when you know your air feels and smells cleaner.

    Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. Make it a priority to inspect the ductwork of your home or business.

    If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating one or more of the following:

    Dirt and debris
    And other contaminants

    SERVPRO of Horry & Georgetown County Professionals routinely inspect the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC).

    For more information on HVAC and air duct cleaning, call us today, (843) 236-6278.
