Damaged Book SERVPRO would rather RESTORE than REPLACE!

When disaster strikes, SERVPRO of the Quad Cities understands that there is much more than emotional trauma that follows after a loss. Alleviating financial stress is a key element of our services.  When a disaster takes control of your life, we will help you take it back!

One of the services that SERVPRO of the Quad Cities provides that you may not be aware of is our Contents Claim Inventory Service. What is the Contents Claim Inventory? It is a physical inventory of your property that aids in keeping costs low and reducing job completion times.

Our Contents Claim Inventory services include:

  1. Inventory: A SERVPRO of the Quad Cities technician will provide a room-by-room inventory of all of your belongings and apply a bar code to each item. This service provides all of the information you could need in case of emergency while relieving the time and energy it would take for you to do it yourself...
  2. Move-Outs: When a structure undergoes extensive damage, part of the clean-up and restoration process may involve removing and relocating your contents for proper cleaning. At SERVPRO of the Quad Cities, we have a professional moving crew that carefully packages and moves your contents to our warehouse for the duration of the cleaning and restoration process.
  3. Contents Cleaning: Once we have evaluated what items are salvageable and which items must be replaced, we will carefully clean and restore these items using our professional processes. We always strive to bring your precious possessions back to their original luster, making it “Like it never even happened.”

Choose SERVPRO of the Quad Cities to protect and restore your most valuable assets.

SERVPRO's Emergency Ready Program (ERP)

7/6/2020 (Permalink)

Is your business prepared for emergency situations, such as fire or a water leak? Do your employees know key information to use in such an emergency, such as the location of your water shut-off valve and fire extinguishers or who to call for immediate assistance? According to recent research, up to 50% of businesses shut their doors following a disaster. Of businesses that remain open, a majority of them had an emergency action plan. The SERVPRO Emergency Ready Program (ERP) App is an important tool for businesses to fill these gaps in emergency preparedness.

Our ERP is an extensive app containing crucial information about your business location, including emergency contact lists, shut-off valve locations and priority locations. This includes several pictures that act as guides for you and your employees during your emergency situation. In the event of a sudden emergency, the ERP is designed to help minimize interruptions in your day-to-day business by having a plan set in place specific to your facility.

At SERVPRO, we believe that understanding what to expect and being organized in the face of emergency is key to timely mitigation of your issues. In this way, our ERP helps you “Be Ready For What Happens” in the face of any obstacles to running your business.

Staying Safe Amid COVID-19

5/15/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO is dedicated to keeping our communities healthy and safe. As the country starts to reopen, we want to remind everyone to take precautions to limit your chances of contracting or spreading COVID-19.

Remember to continue practicing social distancing by putting space between yourself and others—at least 6 feet, as per the CDC. Also continue to practice healthy habits. This will help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Here are some helpful tips:

  • Keep washing your hands, and for at least 20 seconds each time
  • Keep frequently used surfaces clean and disinfected regularly
  • If you feel sick, it is safest to stay home and away from friends and loved ones
  • Avoid touching your face: this is the easiest way to avoid catching the virus

If you would like your home or business deep-cleaned to CDC specified standards, call SERVPRO today!

Vicki Blaire: SERVPRO’s Greatest Cat Mom

6/20/2019 (Permalink)

Bella, after a much needed bath!

Vicki Blaire, our Warehouse Supervisor, has been a dedicated member of the Quad City SERVPRO team for 12 years. And during this time, Vicki has made some lifelong friends—especially her 2 cats: Allie and Bella. In fact, Vicki rescued them both from SERVPRO job sites and brought them home.

Allie, 11, a Maine Coon, was her first furry rescued friend. SERVPRO was cleaning a damaged home that happened to have a new litter of kittens. One of those kittens developed an attachment with Vicki, wandering down the stairs 5 times to greet her; on the 6th time, Vicki decided “I’m taking this guy home”. And for the last 11 years, Allie has been a spoiled and loved part of Vicki’s family. In fact, to her other cats, Allie acts as a paternal and protective figure, always looking out and standing up for his kitty siblings.

Bella, 2, was the next kitten Vicki rescued from a SERVPRO job site. Bella was living under a home and very filthy and in need of care. Instead of taking her to the humane society, Vicki vowed to take her home as well. For the last 2 years, she has been an indispensable part of Vicki’s family.

Vicki’s dedication does not stop with animals; in addition to her 12 years of experience and professional expertise in this industry, Vicki is compassionate and supportive with clients and loves what she does. We are honored to have Vicki on the SERVPRO team!

Why Choose SERVPRO for Duct Cleaning?

4/22/2019 (Permalink)

Ducts can collect large amounts of dust and dirt build-up.

Your ventilation system is often the leading factor in poor indoor air quality. Routinely inspecting the ductwork at your home or business should be a high priority. Soiled air ducts can circulate odors, mold and irritating dust throughout your home or business. Rodents, insects or pests, dust, dirt, debris, bacteria, mold, or pollen: all of these factors can significantly reduce your air quality.

At SERVPRO, we provide cleaning services for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit (HVAC). Keeping this system clean can potentially lengthen the life of your HVAC by allowing it to function at its peak condition; this can also save you money on utility bills and possible equipment repairs in the long run. We also offer sealing and coating to be sprayed in order to address odor issues or microbial concerns.

In other cases, duct cleaning is not always routine. Duct cleaning can become an essential service after a fire, smoke damage, or suspected mold growth. In case of a fire, smoke travels quickly through your ducts, especially if your HVAC system is running at the time. This can lead to ongoing odor issues in your home or business.

If you have a fire or need a routine cleaning service, SERVPRO of Davenport/Bettendorf is “Here To Help” with your duct cleaning needs 24/7!

Why Choose SERVPRO for Odor Elimination?

SERVPRO professionals assess your odor source and present you with the best options for elimination.

Unpleasant odors can be tough to get rid of in your home or business. This is especially true following a fire. Even a small fire can cause oppressive odors to linger for years unless the soiled areas are properly cleaned and deodorized. Left untreated, the aftermath of the soot and smoke from fires can become permanent. This is because, as smoke and soot travels throughout your structure, residues and deposits can get left behind in hard to reach places; the longer this sits, the more time it has to soak into the affected surfaces or materials.

At SERVPRO, our highly trained technicians have years of experience cleaning and deodorizing odor sources. Whether you have odor caused by fire, mold, pets, or cigarette smoke, we have the experience and expertise to tackle any size job at your home or business. We do not simply cover up the orders with fragrances; instead, our team of professionals pin-point the exact location of your odor and eliminate the source. Once we identify the source, we use our own proprietary cleaning products designed to eliminate odors and prevent them from returning. This service also includes any items within range of your odor problem that also need treatment, such as furniture, draperies, floors, walls, HVAC systems, ceilings, and more.

If you are in need of deodorization services, call SERVPRO of Davenport/Bettendorf today at 563-386-3540 and we will make it “Like it never even happened.”
