As Covid-19 Cases Rise in Mercer County, Protect Your Employees and Facility with SERVPRO: Certified Cleaned Program

12/2/2020 (Permalink)

As the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to be a threat to the country, with no signs of abating, businesses are facing an increasingly difficult challenge: how do you keep your business open and profitable, while protecting your workforce and assuring visitors that they will be reasonably safe?  That's a tall order, but with little help on the way from other sources, every business has to look for its own solutions.

Fortunately, the experts at SERVPRO are on top of the problem.  With over 50 years' experience providing top-quality commercial cleaning services across the country, we know how to keep a business safe.  So, we're proud to introduce our Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program!

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned Keep Your Operation Safe While Bringing Peace of Mind

We've been keeping up with research into COVID-19 management since the beginning and have designed Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned to incorporate all the best practices recommended by the CDC and other official virology research groups.  Our proactive cleaning process incorporates the latest in disinfecting technologies, using hospital-grade processes or better, to provide second-to-none cleaning services to our customers.

The Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program is based around our "Three Cs" approach to cleaning, for maximum effectiveness.

1 - Consult

No business or location is the same, and that means disinfecting plans cannot be one-size-fits-all.  Every SERVPRO customer gets a fully customized cleaning plan which is created in collaboration with our customers.  We survey the location, so we can understand how it's used and which areas will present the highest infection risk.  Then we create a full individualized cleaning plan which will address all those concerns.

2 - Clean

Our expert cleaners know how to clean and disinfect a building, inside and out.  All our materials and technologies are hospital-grade or better.  We use products that everyday buyers don't have access to, so we can bring superior disinfecting services to our customers.  And should there be a confirmed case of COVD-19 on your premises, just call us and we'll return within 24 hours to do a full cleaning sweep.

3 - Certify

We want your employees and visitors to know that you're providing the best in protection - with our Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned shield.  Displaying this in your window and other visible areas will tell everyone walking in that you utilize top-grade cleaning services.

COVID-19 is only going to get worse in the next few months.  If you don't have a disinfecting solution in place contact SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton for a consultation, 609-894-8555.

  • Consult – Every business is different, which is why you’ll be assigned a Cleaning Protocol Consultant who understands your business and will create a cleaning program to meet your specific needs. This program will be developed based on your business type, size of space, amount of high frequency touch points, 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 performs. 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.

Ventilation systems can often be the biggest culprit of poor indoor air quality because many people allow HVAC systems to operate for some time without much attention or upkeep.  Your HVAC system could be circulating odors, dust, and other contaminants throughout your property.

A routine part of SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton'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 can in turn save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe.

SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton will inspect your HVAC system and ductwork and make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns.  This inspection can provide peace of mind on the health of your HVAC system and ductwork.  Benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.

For more information on duct cleaning, or to set up a written inspection and estimate, call SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton today at (609) 894-8555.

When your documents are important, let us try to save them!


When our customers experience damages, time and again they are concerned about the irreplaceable, sentimental items such as mementos and photographs, or important documents that are not backed up on any computer. 

When your valuable documents, including photographs, are damaged by water or smoke, extreme caution should be taken to help ensure the damage does not destroy the document. Although some documents may not be restored to pre-damage condition, SERVPRO Franchise Professionals can save a great deal and help minimize additional damage.

Depending on the type of documents and the level of water damage, we have five options for the restoration of documents:

  1. Air Drying
  2. Dehumidification
  3. Freezer Drying
  4. Vacuum Freeze Drying
  5. Vacuum Thermal Drying

SERVPRO® offers restoration through sublimation, turning a solid into a gas and skipping the liquid stage.  In other words, we freeze documents to preserve them, place them in a box in a vacuum chamber that is cooled to -40 degrees, and then apply heat to the bottom of the box to turn the ice directly to water vapor.  The drying chamber can dry almost 800 cubic feet of documents in each cycle.  The standard run time for a load of that size is 4-8 days, depending on the nature of the items and the amount of moisture in them. 

We offer cleaning, digitizing, sterilization through Gamma Irradiation (killing mold and bacteria), deodorizing and trimming (for damage caused by fire or soot), refile jacketing, and certified destruction services.  The drying chamber team is available 24/7, 365 days per year, just like the SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton team.  The drying chamber team is Master HIPAA certified to protect information found in your documents. 

SERVPRO® has performed a tremendous amount of work, drying out everything from financial records and engineering drawings to photo albums and vintage Barbie doll boxes. We ship your documents to our team, who are available to assist with any questions or concerns.  Our drying chamber, located in Gallatin, TN, offers restoration services for any and all kinds of documents, whether it’s a family bible or photographs at a residential water loss, or legal documents, medical files, or government papers at a commercial water loss to make it like it never even happened.
