With regional seats like Macon and smaller areas like Dublin and Vidalia finally experiencing reprieve from the COVID-19 pandemic, signs are abundant that what we once called “normal” life is making a comeback, and business owners are part of that collective expectation.

But customers and workers alike are now more aware than ever of the potential risks in shared spaces, and they want to be assured that your concern for their well-being doesn’t stop with the end of COVID-19 restrictions.

The people who enter your building need to know their health is as much in the forefront of your mind as your profit margin—they need to know your business is Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

Get Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned

The Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program gives customers and business teams the security they need when returning back to physical business locations by providing the ultimate level of cleanliness and sanitation, far beyond traditional janitorial services.

Call to mind the cleanest your building has ever been. Now add in a blend of state-of-the-art biohazard procedures and technologies that far outshine traditional cleaning methods—now you’re beginning to get the idea.

What makes this program so special? Let’s look at the three C’s of a Certified: SERVPRO Clean:

Consult. There’s no other business quite like yours, and we understand that you have a specific set of cleaning and sanitation needs. We’ll work with you to find out what those are, and how we can best implement the necessary solutions. It helps that every SERVPRO office is locally owned and operated, so we are already aware of many intricacies of central Georgia.

Clean. Once we’ve got a feel for the needs of your business, we’ll start putting our tools and technicians to work. We’ll be on site with proprietary, ultra-high-grade cleaning solutions and techniques not available from anyone else. Your building will be operating at an extreme level of clean, one that always meets or exceeds strict standards established by the CDC. This addresses any continued concerns about the spread of the coronavirus, but it goes much deeper, reducing the risk of illness or infection from a host of airborne and surface borne pathogens.

Certify. Your teams and customers will know before they even walk in that you’ve gone the extra mile to protect them, because you’ll be displaying the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned shield in your window or on your door. This lets everyone who passes know that your business has done what few are willing to do to put customer well-being first.

If you’re ready to get serious about sanitation and have your business Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, get in touch today to get the best team in cleanup and restoration on your side.

Services Provided to Restaurants

Restaurants are some of the most commonly flooded businesses in America, as they are prone to some risk factors that can lead to significant water and flood damage year-round. Many restaurants that are located near rivers, creeks, lakes, or shores, making them vulnerable to heavy rainfalls which cause banks to overflow. Restaurants also have high amounts of water usage as compared to other businesses, which can lead to more interior and clear water flooding than in other commercial establishments. Fortunately, SERVPRO knows how to get a restaurant's doors back open as quickly as possible after these damages, through a few key services. 
 
Inventory and Stock Management 
One of the most difficult tasks to accomplish alone after commercial water damage is to take inventory of what has been lost, damaged, or left alone in the building. Everything from furniture to valuable kitchen equipment to food stock can be accounted for and should be, for insurance purposes. SERVPRO can help you to keep track of your losses and get proper repayment from an insurer after the event is said and done. 
 
Rapid Restoration Services 
We have access to a wide variety of powerful tools and machines to help accelerate the process of water removal and restoration, including high-powered air movers, water extractors, deodorizing foggers, UV sanitizers, and more. When used strategically, these machines help businesses to open doors quicker than expected after even the worst water damage. 
 
Cohesive Teams and Helpful Policies 
We strive to ensure that a restaurant owner understands the process of restoration and can talk to our teams and representatives. Also, our staff is assembled in a way that encourages cohesiveness and cooperation. This also extends to our "white collar" representatives, who can present documentation to insurance adjusters and regulators with maximum efficacy.

Emergency Tips

If you have ever had a weather-related emergency, such as a flood, pipe burst, septic tank overflow you may have experienced the frustration of calling for help only to find you would be put on a list and gotten to when that person has a free moment. If you have not had a weather or event related issue at your home or business, yay for you! If you ever do have an emergency, here’s a few things to keep in mind:

  • Everyone you reach out to, whether a plumber or SERVPRO wants to help you and as quickly as possible.
  • When an area is affected, whether by a microburst, hurricane or deep freeze, the damage is common. In other words, if your pipes freeze when the temperature drops from 40 to 7 over a 24 hour period, the same thing is happening to your neighbors.
  • Immediate response resources in an area are always limited. Your plumber of 15 years cannot hire additional crews overnight, as much as he would like to.

So when this occurs, it pays to Go Big.

At SERVPRO of Dublin/Vidalia/Claxton, our first question is always: Is the source fixed or do you need help fixing the source? No job is to big or small for our crew of certified and highly trained experts! When it comes to your property, home, or business you can depend on SERVPRO to get the job done and done right! We have the resources for all trades and labor and can properly and efficiently handle any job no matter the size!

If you have damage to your home or business, finding a restoration company as quickly as possible is probably at the forefront of your mind. While it is understandable that you will want to make a fast decision, you should also make sure that you are making the best decision for your needs. 

After a fire, flood or storm, there is often more than one type of damage present that your restoration crew will have to contend with. That is why we always recommend working with a company that is a leader in all types of damage restoration and follows the guidelines of the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification so you can be sure that no matter the situation, your damage will be restored to its previous condition. 

Here are the types of damages we handle: 

Residential and Commercial Fire Damage 

Fire damage can be nuanced and there are no two situations that are identical. After a fire, you will typically experience damage from smoke, soot and charring, but you will also often have to 

contend with water damage from the fire being extinguished and even some reconstruction if the fire has compromised the structural integrity of your home or business. The good news is, we can handle all of this from start to finish so you can be certain your damage is taken care of. 

Residential and Commercial Water Damage 

Water damage can come from a variety of places, such as a clogged drain, a burst pipe or a weather event. When we are called to the scene of water damage, we can quickly evaluate the extent of the damage and what classification of water is present, and then move in our commercial dryers and dehumidifiers in to get the moisture out. 

Residential and Commercial Storm Damage 

Storms can be terrifying events and cause extensive damage to your home through various means. Water damage, wind damage, hail damage and even fires can be common after storms—but because we can handle all of these things at one time, you can count on us to quickly and comprehensively respond to your storm damage and begin taking action. 

If your home or business has been impacted by fire, water or storm damage, you can count on us to handle it all! Contact us today to learn more.

Why We Always Emphasize Our Quick Response Time | SERVPRO® of Dublin/Vidalia/Claxton


When you are considering what restoration company to work with to handle damage to your
home or business, there are quite a few things to consider—but we think one of the most
important things is a quick response time.

Whether you are dealing with fire, water or some other type of restoration work, we guarantee a
quick response time because it is so important to the overall restoration of your property.

Why a Quick Response Time Matters for Fire Damage

Even if you were not home during the fire, sustaining fire damage is a traumatic event. Not only do you have to deal with the charring from the flames, the buildup of the soot and the odor from the smoke, but there can also be significant water damage if sprinkler systems were activated or water was used to extinguish the flames. All of these things can work together to create a truly
dangerous environment, between the health issues that smoke and soot can cause and the
structural dangers that charring and water damage can lead to. To ensure the safety of you and your household, we will respond quickly to fire damage every time.

Why a Quick Response Time Matters for Water Damage


While the peace of mind is important when it comes to the aftermath of water damage, a quick
response is about even more than that for us. Water damage can worsen as it is left to sit,
seeping into the structure of the impacted area and giving rise to the dangerous growth of mold
and mildew. By responding to water damage quickly, we eliminate the need for concern
regarding these elements and can instead move in quickly and secure the area so you know it is
safe.


Why a Quick Response Time Matters for All Other Restoration


Regardless of what type of damage we are talking about, knowing that you can count on your
restoration company to quickly come to your aid is a great way to achieve peace of mind. You
will never be left wondering what comes next or waiting hopelessly for a slow response team
when you work with us—our expert technicians will respond as quickly as possible to take
charge and begin your restoration work right away.


If you need restoration to your home or business, count on us. Contact us today to learn more
about how we respond quickly.
