Our attendees learned many aspects of a fire damage claims process and how to deal with the aftermath of fire damage. They gained awareness of how quickly a fire in your home or business can start and how quickly that fire can spread. They learned how different materials burn, in order to determine what cleaning process will be most beneficial in returning the fire damage back to preloss condition.

They learned about the differences between a dry or wet soot, fuel oil soot and protein soot. The behavior of smoke, including heat transference, temperatures of smoke and surfaces, airflow patterns, convection and heat lines and the differences in them. This helps us to determine what type of smoke damage they have and the different types of odors that they cause to the home and personal property.

The class also highlighted a homeowners Perception vs reality and how important communication is during the remediation process. By doing so, it helps give the homeowner or business owner confidence in the cleaning process and gives them a sense of order when things seem so chaotic and frightening.  The most important job is helping customers put their lives back together. SERVPRO of Kirksville wants to help you, regain that control.

Regaining control after a fire, starts with beginning mitigation as soon as possible. The sooner mitigation begins the sooner you or your customer can start gaining control again.

After selling the first franchise in 1969, SERVPRO continued to grow, acquiring the Bristol-Myers Domesticare Division and its 175 franchises in 1979.

SERVPRO relocated its corporate headquarters from Sacramento to Gallatin, Tennessee, in 1988 to place itself within 600 miles of 50% of the U.S. population.

At the time of the relocation, the SERVPRO System consisted of 647 franchises.

The company's headquarters quickly became a key contributor in its community, and in 1991 the Nashville Business Journal named SERVPRO Industries, LLC, the Small Business of the Year.

Spring cleaning tips

Remove water stains with lemon for a natural faucet fix

This spring, make faucets clean and sparkly by rubbing a lemon half on the water stains. The citric acid helps remove hard water marks. Then, use the other half of the lemon for our next tip.

Clean your microwave by heating lemon juice and rinds in water

Cut a lemon into halves, squeeze the juice into 1/2 cup of water and drop the rinds into the mixture. Microwave for three minutes and let it stand for five minutes without opening the door. The trapped steam will loosen the grime, so you can wipe the microwave clean with less elbow grease.

Use white vinegar to beat shower head buildup

Looking for more natural ways to clean your bathroom? Vinegar can dissolve the mineral deposits accumulate in showerheads over time, causing reduced pressure and water flow. Fill a plastic bag with white vinegar, secure it over the showerhead with a rubber band and leave it overnight to get rid of buildup. Just be sure to run the shower before you hop in, or you risk smelling like vinegar all day.

Clean stainless steel sinks with baking soda

Simply wet your sink and faucet, sprinkle baking soda, and scrub with a sponge. If you need more heavy-duty scrubbing power, add salt to the baking soda.

Use newspaper to clean dirty windows and mirrors

Mix ¼ cup of white vinegar, 2 cups of water and 2 teaspoons of liquid soap into a spray bottle. Spray the mixture onto the glass and scrub with newspaper for a streak-free window or mirror. The ink acts as a mild abrasive and allows you to make use of old newspapers.
