  • 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. And because we add the day, month, and year to that proprietary stamp of clean, your guests will know that not only did you choose Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, but that your location is being cleaned regularly at this standard.

Celebrating National Teacher Week!

5/5/2020 (Permalink)

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week and with most schools closed because of COVID-19, we’ve all gotten a pretty clear glimpse into “a day in the life” of a teacher. And it’s safe to say we have found greater appreciation for teachers as we’ve seen just how much they do and how their passion to help students learn and grow has spilled over into virtual classrooms.

It’s in these challenging times that we truly recognize and appreciate how our nation’s educators play such a pivotal role in our children’s lives—inspiring a lifelong love of learning and discovery and making a difference in their well-being and long-term success. 

Here a few fun ideas to thank our teachers for their immense work and positive impact while social distancing:

1. Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day—and when we think about all that they are doing for our kids, it moves us beyond words, so we need emojis to say how we feel. Get emoji-tional and share how you love, celebrate, and care for our teachers on social media. And use #ThankATeacher on your posts.

2. Take a picture of your child learning from home and send it to their teacher. 

3. Make a video about why your child and family are thankful for your teacher and send it to your teacher.

4. Get on TikTok and show your teachers how you and your family are learning together during COVID-19. Get creative with it! You can sing Montell Jordan’s hit song, “This is How We Do it” and make sure you use #AlwaysLearning in your post!

Have fun with celebrating some of the most wonderful role models in our children's lives.

Proactive Cleaning in the Community

Proactive Cleaning in Our Local Community

Working together to get some proactive cleaning done on 2 of the iron ore carriers that are currently in dock at Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay, WI. We needed to proactively clean the ship’s crew areas before the crews arrived for the shipping season. Definitely an incredible experience for our SERVPRO team to see how enormous these ships are, 750 – 1000 feet long! With that being said, you would think the crew would be quite extensive in number, but surprisingly they consist of 20 -25 crew members.

SERVPRO of Brown County is here to help! We have technicians on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, ready to go into action when they are needed. Call us at (920) 434-8224

April Showers

April Showers

As the rain showers set in, the concern for flooding arises. If flood water is not handled quickly and properly, it can jeopardize your health and safety, and cause severe damage to your home’s structure. Remember, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get.

There are a few tips for homeowners and business owners can do to prevent water damage.

  • Inspect your roof regularly, especially after heavy storms. Look for missing or loose shingles or any heavy wear.
  • You will want to clean your gutters to ensure proper drainage. By being proactive in cleaning your gutters, you can prevent your foundation from cracking your basement walls.
  • Check your sump pump yearly, and most importantly after heavy thunderstorms.
  • Regularly check your pipes to make sure there are no leaks.
  • Extra tip: Keep an eye on your water bill. If you notice your bill increasing, that could be a cause for concern, and you would want to check it out before any more damage occurs.

If water damage does happen in your home or business, rest assured that SERVPRO of Brown County is ready to help you. We are available at any time or day, and since we’re local, we’re faster to any sized disaster!

Call or email us (920)434-8224 at office@SERVPROgreenbay.com to see how we can help clean your home or business.

With being safe at home, there is no better time than right now to prepare our kids for natural disasters. Kids and teens should learn invaluable techniques to better equip them for a variety of severe weather disruptions.

Taking the proper precautionary steps to create an emergency plan could help reduce any occurrence of anxiety when such unexpected events transpire.

Taking the proper precautionary steps to formulate an emergency plan could help reduce any occurrence of anxiety when such unexpected events transpire.

Some helpful tips on how to prepare your children for natural disasters include:

  • Offer them facts on the typical weather developments for our region or emergencies that would generally involve first responders being dispatched.
  • Focus on types of hazards that could affect the home: a place to seek immediate shelter in the event a tornado develops or prompt evacuation as a result of a fire
  • Create then test out your family disaster plan. Just as your child practices fire drills at school, disaster drills at home are an excellent way to review what to do during a crisis. Model the exercise for your children and then have them participate either monthly or every few months to see if revisions should be made to your established plan.

Your families primary focus should be more on keeping everyone safe. Let the trained technicians at SERVPRO of Brown County take some of the worries off your hands by clearing out the damage to your residence. 

SERVPRO of Brown County offers:

Restoration work following storms or interior damage to your home is a cornerstone of the SERVPRO business. Give our trained technicians a call at, (920) 434-8224.

FEMA Extends Grace Period for Flood Insurance Renewal Premiums

4/2/2020 (Permalink)

With the COVID-19 epidemic, many people are facing new challenges which are forcing them to look into additional options for economic support.An option available to home and business owners with existing flood insurance is the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).  The agency is extending the grace period to renew flood insurance policies from 30 to 120 days. This extension applies to NFIP flood insurance policies with an expiration date between February 13-June 15, 2020.

According to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States, affecting every single state. While hurricanes are mostly responsible for massive flooding disasters, other causes of flooding from outdoor sources can include snow melting and heavy rain. While many homeowner insurance policies cover flooding from sources inside your home like a broken pipe or leaky water heater, they typically do not cover flood damages from outdoor sources.

Even if your home isn’t in a high-risk area, it may be a wise idea to purchase a flooding insurance policy. Purchasing a flood insurance policy may save you time and money, helping your family recover faster.

There's never a suitable time for fire or water damage to strike. Every hour spent cleaning up is an hour of lost revenue and productivity. So, when the need arises for professional cleaning or emergency restoration services, we have the training and expertise to respond promptly with highly trained technicians to get your property back to business. 

SERVPRO of Brown County has the training and equipment to help make water damage "Like it never even happened." If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 920-434-8224.

We have technicians on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, ready to go into action when they are needed.
