Supporting Local Business in Ashland/Richland is Important, and Supporting SERVPRO Does Just That!

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned logo Support local by contacting SERVPRO for your disaster clean up needs in Ashland or Richland! 

In recent years, a greater emphasis has been placed on supporting local businesses. From small mom and pop shops, farmers markets, or even disaster restoration services, it is important to support your local community, its members, and the local economy. That’s why SERVPRO of Ashland/Richland is proud to be locally owned and operated. When you support SERVPRO of Ashland/Richland, you’re supporting local businesses near you in Ashland or Richland. But why is serving local businesses so important? Well, here are three big reasons! 

  1. Boosting the local economy 

It makes sense when you think about it, doesn’t it? If you support a local business and that business grows, they hire new employees. It’s very likely they’ll hire people that live nearby, and this keeps the money within the community.  

  1. Building Community Connections 

This piggybacks off boosting the local economy. When you support a local business, that business can become a staple to the community. It becomes a place where people can meet and meet up, make new friends or reunite with old ones. An identity can be formed around a local business, where you know the owners or employees, and know you can trust them.  

  1. Environmental Preservation 

You probably know preserving the environment is important, but did you know supporting local businesses does just that? But local businesses tend to also buy from local merchants, instead of from huge facilities far away, and this decreases carbon emissions.  

So, when you have any kind of water damage, fire damage, flooding, or need clean up in the Ashland or Richland areas, you can support local by supporting SERVPRO of Ashland/Richland!

Reading as a team makes us strong!

Man reading a book SERVPRO of Ashland / Richland book club is designed to improve ourselves for all we do.

Everything you read fills your head with new bits of information, and you never know when it might come in handy. The more knowledge you have, the better-equipped you are to tackle any challenge you’ll ever face.  The team at SERVPRO of Ashland / Richland takes this to heart as we started our first book club.  Our first book was the “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” by John Maxwell.

As we discussed the book weekly among our technicians, office staff and management we learned:

  • A person must always stand on solid ground. Stick to the rules you represent.  Honesty, Fairness and Good Judgement are the foundation.
  • Your co-workers must respect you, but that respect has to be earned on a constant basis. It’s important that you keep earning this respect over time.
  • Hating losing is a good thing – it keeps you focused on winning. Giving up and losing are not valid options.

Should you ever find yourself in dire circumstances, remember that although you might lose everything else—your job, your possessions, your money, even your health—knowledge can never be taken from you. That is what SERVPRO of Ashland / Richland teaches our team.  So if you needs us, we will be there to help make it “Like it never even happened.”

Teamwork!

Team eating lunch together SERVPRO of Ashland / Richland close team members work and eat together.

Teamwork requires a mix of interpersonal, problem solving, and communication skills needed for individuals to work together towards a common goal. These skills become even more important when you work with others on a long-term, sustained basis like SERVPRO of Ashland / Richland does.

To serve our customers the best we can we teach how to work constructively as a team and with our clients.  To help build a collaborative team environment, we work to develop and practice the following:

  1. Trust: Be honest; work to eliminate conflicts of interest; avoid talking behind each other’s back; trust teammates (you must trust them before they will trust you); give team members the benefit of the doubt.
  2. Clarify Roles: Review team member roles frequently; clarify responsibilities when action planning; relate team member expectations to team’s overall purpose; figure out ways to help each other.
  3. Communicate Openly & Effectively: Work to clear up misunderstandings quickly and accurately; seek to understand all perspectives; err on the side of over communicating; reinforce and recognize team member efforts. Learn to listen well.
  4. Appreciate Diversity of Ideas: Evaluate a new idea based on its merits; remember that reasonable people can and do differ with one another; avoid remarks that draw negative attention to a person’s unique characteristics; don’t ignore the differences among team members; try to learn as much as you can from others.
  5. Balance the Team’s Focus: Regularly review and evaluate the effectiveness of team meetings; design individual performance goals that emphasize both results and teamwork; praise individual effort; assign specific team members to monitor task needs and others to monitor relationship needs; hold team celebrations for achieving results.

As leaders in the restoration and cleanup industry, you’ve probably heard our advertisements about how we are faster to any size disaster. Although, this is true, we wanted to let you know about best practices we use to ensure that your business or home is in good hands.

Disasters involving water and mold are never easy to process and our goal is to make it easy on the clients to avoid any further frustration.

This process can take days and we utilize this system to make sure that we gain your approval prior to proceeding with services. Disasters may arrive and destroy quickly. However, we at SERVPRO of Ashland / Richland like to take our time to assess the situation to do a good job in mitigation and restoration.

Here at SERVPRO of Ashland / Richland, we are committed to giving our clients a positive experience.

SERVPRO the professional you can trust!

Last year it seemed like Mansfield, Ohio received a lot more rain than normal. Not only did it seem like we got more rain but when it rained it seemed to rain from every angle. Sometimes it's hard to see where the water ends or even begins. SERVPRO of North Richland & Ashland Counties has advanced technology to help find and dry the areas before they receive secondary damages. Once these areas are identified SERVPRO will double verify they are wet with a moisture reader, either penetrating or non-penetrating. Infrareds are helpful but must be double check only because infrareds will identify cold areas only so there could be false readings. The homeowner was captivated with the technology SERVPRO provided and was impressed with the knowledge portrayed.

Helpful holiday hint from SERVPRO

1/4/2019 (Permalink)

Did you know...

A majority of fires that take place in homes begin in the kitchen.

The holiday season is approaching, which means that many of us will be spending a lot more time in the kitchen. This also means that, with every pumpkin pie and each batch of Christmas cookies you make, there is a greater risk of a fire emergency. 

Aside from calling 9-1-1, which should be one of your first moves, here are some quick tips for dealing with a fire emergency in your kitchen.

  1. Always watch your cooking; don't leave anything unattended
  2. Set a timer so that you don't accidentally burn something or forget that an appliance is being used
  3. If something on the stove catches on fire and it is small, cover it with a lid and turn off the burner
  4. Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen near your cooking area where it is easily accessible
  5. Add baking soda to a grease fire, not water
  6. Clean your appliances regularly so that grease does not accumulate and start a fire
  7. Clean and dust around and behind appliances, as dust accumulation can cause fires if it is close to electrical wiring
  8. Keep flammable objects away from cooking appliances, especially those things like tea towels and potholders 
  9. Install a smoke alarm in your kitchen
  10. Test your smoke alarms and make sure they will work when you most need them!

Keep these quick tips in mind, and prevent a major fire damage emergency from taking place in your home this season!

Disasters Can Happen be prepared.

1/4/2019 (Permalink)

As a business owner, insurer or property manager, you are a leader in your community and have the opportunity to set an example for your employees, customers and community to follow.

This year for National Preparedness Month, join your community in preparing for emergencies and disasters of all types, and leading efforts to encourage the community as a whole to become more prepared. “Disasters happen” and not only devastate individuals and neighborhoods, but entire communities, including businesses of all sizes.

As an employer in your community, having a business continuity plan can help protect your company, its employees and its infrastructure, and maximizes your chances of recovery after an emergency or disaster. You can do this by taking three simple steps:

  • Plan to stay in business
  • Encourage your employees to become ready
  • Protect your investment

We must work together as a team to ensure that our families, businesses, places of worship and neighborhoods are ready. At Ready.gov/business, companies can find vital information on how to begin preparing their organization and addressing their unique needs during an emergency. 

Water Damage information

1/4/2019 (Permalink)

The first 24 hours following a water loss are the most important in preventing secondary or permanent damage. Within four hours of loss notification, a SERVPRO of North Richland and Ashland Co. Professional will be on-site to help ensure a water damage is handled by completing the following steps.

INSPECTION

SERVPRO of North Richland and Ashland Co. Professionals will inspect affected areas to determine the extent of water damage and will review the inspection with you to answer any questions before beginning any work.

EMERGENCY SERVICES

SERVPRO of North Richland and Ashland Co. Professionals will take steps to help protect your home or business, as well as personal belongings and other contents, from further damage by extracting the excess water and preparing the area for drying. They will explain the needed emergency services to you step-by-step.

MONITORING

To help ensure your home or business and belongings are dried to appropriate industry standards, a SERVPRO Professional will monitor the drying process. The updates will be consistently communicated to you.

EMERGENCY WATER DAMAGE TIPS

  • Shut off the water source if possible or contact a qualified party to stop the water source.
  • Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building when access to the power distribution panel is safe from electrical shock.
  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Move any paintings, art objects, computers, documents, and other sensitive valuables to a dry place.
  • Don’t enter affected areas if electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers, or electrical equipment are exposed to water. Always avoid electrical shock hazards.
  • Don’t use your household vacuum cleaner to remove water; this could cause electrical shock or damage to the vacuum cleaner.
  • Don’t turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet or enter rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water.
