Non-Smoking Hotels

9/1/2021 (Permalink)

A housekeeper cleans a Bryant AR hotel room When someone smokes in a non-smoking hotel room, a deep cleaning is required before the room can be re-rented.

A majority of hotels have made the move to become non-smoking over the past decade. Other than designated smoking areas outdoors, hotel guests are not allowed to light up inside their rooms. Should they do it anyway, they often face stiff penalties from the hotel chain, who will likely charge a hefty cleaning fee to get the smell out of not just the room, but the HVAC system. This fine can range from $100-$500.

Depending on the strength of the smoke smell, a variety of techniques are used to remove the tobacco smell from a hotel room. The room is basically stripped, then the walls and ceilings are washed. If the room has carpet, it is shampooed. Curtains and drapes are dry cleaned and lampshades are replaced. It's a time-involved effort that costs the hotel revenue since that room has to be taken out of available inventory to be scrubbed clean.

SERVPRO of Saline County and SERVPRO of Hot Springs are well-versed in smoke odor and how to remove it. Do you run a hotel and have a problem making the smell stay away? Give us a call at 501-776-2222, and we'd be happy to assist you. We're fast and efficient and can help you flip that hotel room quickly so it is ready for the next guest.

Bring Your Workers Back to a Clean Office in Bryant, AR!

5/6/2021 (Permalink)

A woman types on a keyboard in Bryant, AR Let us help get your office sparkling clean before the workers come back full-time!

When the coronavirus pandemic struck in early 2020, a large number of companies transitioned their employees into remote workers, allowing them to work from home instead of commuting into the office and possibly catching the virus. As time went on, some employers made working from home a permanent option. Others brought their employees back on a limited schedule, allowing them to work from home for the majority of the time.

Things have changed a lot in a year. The coronavirus vaccine is more readily available, and the case numbers have rapidly dropped in some areas. This leaves employers with a decision: Where do we go from here? Many offices are opting to have their employees return to the office full-time. There have been numerous reports about workers experiencing anxiety over a return to the workplace. They've gotten used to their new schedule, and it's hard to go back to the daily grind. The office wants them back, but is the office ready for employees to return?

Are there some things about your office that needed to be done, but the pandemic pushed it back? You never got around to getting that coffee stain out of the carpet? Don't bring employees back to the same old office they left a year ago. Clean it up and make it nice and welcoming.

SERVPRO of Saline County and SERVPRO of Hot Springs are always here to help! We offer a variety of commercial services, including carpet cleaning. Let us get your office sparkling top-to-bottom to welcome back those who may be a bit apprehensive. It's a fresh start for everyone. Give us a call at 501-776-2222 today, and we'd be happy to discuss what kinds of services would be a good fit to get your workspace back into top shape before the workers return!

Your church is your home away from home.  It should always look its best in order to inspire your congregation to come together.  While flooring types are different from church to church, many of them are carpeted.  This inspires a sense of closeness within the church community.  After a while, it can also look a bit worn-down from heavy foot traffic.  This is especially true in churches that offer Sunday School services and have a nursery for infants.

Commercial Cleaning for Your Bryant, AR Restaurant

3/11/2021 (Permalink)

A cook cleans his workstation. Cleanliness is essential in commercial kitchens.

Restaurants are big business in Saline County, AR. From mom and pop diners to national chains, restaurants dot the landscape. You know the food is good, but what's it like in the kitchen? How strictly does each restaurant follow its cleaning protocols? The answer could surprise you.

Restaurants should be cleaned and disinfected on a regular schedule. A commercial kitchen could become a fire hazard if grease is not removed from the kitchen. Exhaust fans help move the airborne grease from the kitchen, and if the fans are not cleaned regularly, it poses a serious fire hazard. A clean and sanitized kitchen also reduces the spread of disease among kitchen staff, leading to fewer sick days and call-outs.

The Arkansas State Board of Health publishes a 145-page book of rules and regulations regarding food establishments in Arkansas. Lengthy chapters are devoted to the frequency of cleaning supplies and equipment used in Arkansas restaurants. In a perfect world, all rules and regulations would be followed exactly to the letter, but realistically, it doesn't always happen. Restaurants get busy and the workers mean to “get to it later,” and some of the deep-cleaning simply does not happen. Should the restaurant have a surprise inspection from the state, the restaurant could be fined or even shut down until the problems are corrected. Don't let that happen to your restaurant!

SERVPRO of Saline County and SERVPRO of Hot Springs are ready to deep clean and sanitize your commercial kitchen to promote a safer, healthier work environment. Give us a call today at 501-776-2222. We'll make the mess “Like it never even happened.”

How Long Before Water Damage Leads to Mold?

9/16/2020 (Permalink)

Mold on walls and ceilings Water damage leads to mold, it is not if, but when.

Mold can start to grow within just 24 to 48 hours after water damage.

Building owners and facilities managers should arrange for mitigation as soon as possible after a flood, pipe burst or leak occurs at a structure in Perryville, AR. Find out more about mold prevention measures for commercial properties.

The First 24 Hours
As soon as signs of damage become apparent, an owner or manager should try to limit the extent of primary damage and the risk of secondary damage. He or she should immediately take the following steps:

  • Contact a mitigation and restoration company
  • Limit damage in any way possible
  • Arrange for an inspection

A damage mitigation service should respond to a call within an hour and arrive on site within several hours. Experts should assess the extent of damage during this visit and recommend mitigation strategies.

24 to 48 Hours
A mitigation company should take measures to reduce the likelihood of mold growth within one to two days after water damage. Experts may recommend any of the following procedures:

  • Pumping out standing water
  • Tearing out damaged building materials
  • Cleaning and disinfecting the area
  • Promoting drying

It will be necessary for the affected area to dry completely before restoration begins. Air movers or fans can increase ventilation and dehumidifiers can draw moisture out of the air and any porous materials.

48 to 72 Hours
Preventative measures are still necessary even after standing water from a pipe burst, flood or leak has been extracted. Owners or managers should maintain indoor relative humidity levels between 30 to 50 percent to prevent mold formation.

Damage mitigation and mold prevention measures are critical within the hours and days following water damage. If a flood or leak occurs at a building in Perryville, AR a commercial damage mitigation and restoration company can help owners and managers stop mold growth before it starts.
