We provide Air Quailty testing

9/1/2021 (Permalink)

Maintaining workplace indoor air quality (IAQ), is important for good health and wellness of your employees and customers. Roughly 90% of our time is spent indoors and a large portion of that time is spent at work. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), regard indoor air pollution as a major problem. Most business owners don't realize the air circulating in the workplace is often filled with toxic compounds that can cause health effects. Poor IDA can negatively affect productivity and increase absences among employees. What causes poor indoor air quality?

Excessive moisture  

When there is a high percentage of moisture, it allows mold, bacteria and fungus to grow. Indoor relative humidity, should be kept between 30 and 50 percent. 

Biological 

Some common biological pollutants are bacteria, mold, dust mites, animal dander and pollen. Improper maintenance and cleaning of HVAC system can add to this issue.

Chemicals

Chemicals (gases and vapors) can come from many sources. Products such as, office equipment, furniture, wall and floor coverings release chemicals into the air. Products that enter the HVAC system from outdoors, products used during renovations and chemical spills. By-products, such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and nitrogen dioxide, are also known sources. 

Particles

These are solid or liquid and non-biological, that are released into the air creating respiratory problems. The most common particles is dirt and dust, drywall dust, wood dust and silica. 

What can you do to improve indoor air quality?

  • Keep all air supply vents unblocked
  • Clean spills immediately
  • Store food properly 
  • Dispose of garbage properly
  • Add some indoor plants 
  • Run commercial-grade air purifiers or air scrubbers and dehumidifiers to reduce moisture. 
  • Keep your workplace clean
  • Have your carpets professionally cleaned
  • Use eco-friendly cleaning products
  • Open windows to allow fresh air to circulate
  • Change HVAC filter regularly
  • Commercial HVAC systems should be professionally cleaned every few years or sooner if needed. 
  • Put floor mats outside each entrance way and clean mats regularly 

We are here to help improve the indoor air quality of your business.

5 kids and 1 dog dressed in Halloween costumes, ready to Trick-or-Treat Kids and dog ready to Trick-or-Treat

According to the NSC, Children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year.

Walk Safely

  1. Never assume a motorist has seen you. Make eye contact and make sure they know you are there.
  2. Always stay on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sideways,walk facing traffic as far to the left side as possible.
  3. Put the devices down. Keep heads up and walk, don't run across the street.

Costumes 

  1. Be visible! Add lights and reflectors to your child's costume, it's a fun and easy way to help keep children safe as they trick or treat.
  2. Check that your child's costume is flame resistant and does not obstruct their vision.
  3. Choose masks that are easy to see through and think about lifting your mask up while walking between houses.

Check Candy

  1. Always check candy before letting your child eat it. Avoid homemade treats made by strangers.
  2. Watch out for foods your children are allergic to.
  3. Throw away candy that is unwrapped.

5/16/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Athens was back at it again!  We attended the 2019 Marigold Parade.  The Marigold Parade is part of the Winterville, Georgia Marigold Festival.  This festival began over 30 years ago in order to promote friendship and renovate the town.  The festival includes juried arts and crafts, food vendors, dancing and entertainment.  All festivities are held at Pittard Park. 

As always, our SERVPRO of Athens crew was spotted at the end of the parade making it “Like it never even happened.” SERVPRO of Athens attends the parade annually and keeps the streets clear after the parade.  Attending this year’s parade was Joey Baker, Connor Brewington, Matt Addison and our Production Manager David Chance.  Our guys enjoy cleaning up the streets and throwing sweets!  We also light up the crowd by squirting water guns for a quick cool down.  We enjoy making our community smile. 

See you at the Colbert 4th of July parade!
