Clean Those Gutters Now to Prevent Future Winter Storm Damage
As winter and winter storms begin to approach, leaves begin to pile into gutters. It is important to keep your gutters free of debris so water can run into them without resistance. Some steps to prevent clogged gutters include: Trimming trees near the home, installing gutter guards, and removing materials that have fallen into the gutters with a scoop or by hand.
Clogged gutters can result in degraded foundations, cracked roofs, flooding in many areas of the home causing water storm damage, and broken gutters. The results of a clogged gutter will require much more effort to repair then simply fixing it before it occurs. Get prepared this winter season! If you have questions about any water damage or tips on how to prevent water damage call SERVPRO of Coffee, Franklin, Warren Counties.

Why you Should Make Carpet Cleaning a Priority!
Get your carpets professionally cleaned regularly to help protect your family and your home.
For most homeowners, carpet cleaning is rarely considered a routine chore. While most assume that vacuuming is sufficient, it often isn’t enough for the heavier debris.
Carpet companies often require regular cleaning to maintain the manufacturer’s warranty, but there are several other reasons why carpet cleaning is a wise choice. By allowing for easier floor maintenance, extending the life of your carpet and banishing bugs and mites, carpet cleaning is a smart choice for any homeowners looking to have clean and well-maintained floors.
Still not convinced? Here are some ways that carpet cleaning can benefit your home:
Have simpler floor maintenance. Though vacuuming handles only the surface, it can happily coexist with regular carpet cleaning to make your life much easier! Regularly cleaned carpets are simpler to vacuum because the heavy-duty dirt and debris have already been removed.
Extend your carpet’s life. In remodels, carpet is often replaced for looking “tired”—often simply a result of being too dirty for too long. Every time dirty carpet is walked on, the debris becomes more embedded, working like sandpaper against the fibers and shortening the lifespan tremendously.
Remove mites and bugs. As with any other soft surface, mites and bugs are more than happy to take residence within plush carpet fibers. Thankfully, professional cleaning creates an inhospitable living environment for the critters, and staying on a regular schedule will discourage them from coming back.
Improve indoor air. Not only do carpets contain dirt, but there are also more dangerous pollutants and bacteria that might be lurking within the fibers. When doors and windows are opened, contaminants from the outside air are also brought into the home. Because vacuuming only handles surface-level debris, the other pollutants are free to degrade indoor air quality until they’re professionally removed.

Let's Keep Each Other Safe: How to Get Professional Cleaning for COVID-19
Professional Certified Cleaning- Schedule Yours Today!
Whether you're trying to re-open a business or keep your home extremely clean for at-risk residents, professional cleaning can help relieve your COVID worries.
There has never been a better time to re-evaluate your cleaning policies and procedures. Whether it's an office, residential building, or your home, cleanliness is now the highest priority.
If you want true peace of mind about potential exposure to COVID 19, you should find a professional cleaning service.
Here's how to do it!
Find a Trusted Professional Cleaning Service
Professional cleaners are in high demand because of the pandemic. If you are going to trust a professional cleaning service, you need to be sure they are qualified for the job.
Look for a service that has experience cleaning spaces like the one you want to clean. A company specializing in individual homes may not be the right choice for your office building or vice versa.
Read reviews for the cleaning service before hiring them. If other people have had a good experience, chances are you will too.
The professional cleaning service has their procedures with regard to PPE and other precautions. Most services now have clear guidelines on protection for their safety and the sanitation of the space.
A one-time cleaning is not going to be enough. Talk with the cleaning service about setting up a regular cleaning schedule weekly or bi-weekly.
A professional cleaning service will make a big difference in the safety of your home or workplace. But it doesn't mean that you can be complacent about other sanitation measures.
In between cleanings, you should clean surfaces, including door handles or elevator buttons. Any surface that people could potentially come in contact with should be disinfected.
Promote handwashing in bathrooms and kitchens. You can use sticky notes, posters, or any other signage that might be helpful to remind people to wash their hands.
Facial coverings should be worn in offices and shared spaces of larger residential buildings (apartments, condos, assisted living facilities).
Keep sanitizing agents available in areas where handwashing may not be convenient.
Limit Exposure Opportunities
If you are working in an office building, consider having some or all employees work remotely if possible. Try to host meetings virtually instead of in-person.
If you must hold a meeting in-person, inform every participant of the precautions, and collect contact information in case someone does get sick.
You can limit your exposure at home by reducing the number of people inside and encouraging guests to wear masks. You can also offer to host outdoor gatherings to reduce the likelihood of the virus spreading.
Be Clean, Be Healthy, Be Safe
These are uncertain times we are living in. But if you can promote a clean, safe space, it will ease your anxiety.
Find a professional cleaning service you can trust, and be diligent about cleaning regularly. Take precautions to prevent the spread of the virus by protecting yourself and your community at all times.
