Covid 19

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has arrived in America — and it’s spreading quickly. As the virus reaches pandemic levels, we know how important it is to stop the spread of coronavirus in your office or home. Helping you, your family and employees stay safe and healthy is our number one priority, so we’ve assembled some top tips for Coronavirus Prevention, and cleaning your spaces to prevent germs from spreading. Keep reading this Guide to Avoiding the Coronavirus to find out more.

What is Coronavirus?

Coronavirus 2019 is the name of the newest flu strain to concern health officials. The outbreak of the virus began in Wuhan, China in December of last year. Though it is thought to have begun spreading at an animal market, we now know it can also be spread from person to person. Still early in its discovery, it has proven to be deadly, with a 3.4% mortality rate in those it affects. It causes severe illness and respiratory symptoms.

Who is at risk?

Anybody who comes into close proximity with another person who is carrying the virus is at risk of catching Coronavirus. That risk increases during international or domestic travel to places where Coronavirus has been especially prevalent. The virus is spread through respiratory droplets from coughing or sneezing.

How do I know if I have Coronavirus? 

One way to assess if you have Coronavirus is by your symptoms. Fever, tiredness and dry cough are the three most common symptoms. According to the World Health Organization, some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. Other patients may never experience symptoms, but still, be carrying the virus around — making it hard to eradicate. A doctor can confirm the diagnosis with a laboratory test. If you have symptoms or are feeling unwell, head to your nearest medical professional as soon as possible.

How is Coronavirus treated?

As of now, there is no official cure for Coronavirus Prevention. Treatment measures tend to be supportive in nature to alleviate the symptoms, rather than the virus itself. About 80% of people who get Coronavirus will recover normally without complications; the most at-risk for severe illness and death are older-aged people and those with health complications or pre-existing medical conditions.

 

How can I protect myself and my family?

According to the Centers for Disease Control, some health preventative measures to stop the spread of Coronavirus to your family and home are:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Wear a facemask when caring for or interacting with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose
  • Stay home when you are sick, keep kids out of school if they are displaying respiratory symptoms
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for more than 20 seconds each time
     

Aside from these preventative measures, you can also protect yourself by staying educated — keep up with the latest news for developments about the virus, and check out these government resources to learn more and stay on top of Coronavirus Prevention. 

 

How do I prevent the spread of Coronavirus in my facility?

Encourage employees to stay home when sick, and be sure to disinfect surfaces and frequently-touched items in the office each day. Promote employee wellness by allowing them to work from home in the event of mild symptoms. Ensure you are providing adequate hand sanitizer, hand soap and disinfecting wipes or sprays for employee use.

 

What do I do if Coronavirus spreads to my facility?

If you find that Coronavirus has infected your facility, stay calm and remember that the situation must be handled with the utmost precaution. Close your building (if the industry allows, you can maintain operations by allowing work from home) to avoid contamination. Call your local restoration or biological cleanup company who will be able to disinfect the building with hospital-grade equipment and solutions.

Hard Surface Floor Cleaning - Acrylic and Urethane

 

 

HARD-SURFACE FLOORS (ACRYLIC)

Can I strip floors with acrylic finish?

Acrylic is strippable and does require periodic stripping.

How often do I buff? If heel marks and scuff marks become prevalent, buffing is needed.

Is acrylic slippery when wet?

Any floor can be slippery when wet. Our acrylic products are considered to have acceptable slip resistance according to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) B101.3-2012 test method for measuring wet dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) of common hard-surface floor materials.

How long will acrylic floors last?

Wear of any finish depends greatly on traffic, use and cleaning practices; an average lifespan is about one year.

Does acrylic have a span odor during application?

Acrylic does have an odor during application, but it is generally mild and usually dissipates within a short period of time.

Isn’t acrylic finish expensive?

Acrylic finish is generally less expensive than other finishes. However, multiple coats may be necessary to achieve the level of gloss and level of protection you desire.

Will applying acrylic void my manufacturer’s warranty on the floor?

It may. However, most factory warranties do not cover scratching, wear and abrasion. If your floor has reached this stage, your best option is to protect it. Many factory finishes, like acrylic, will eventually wear out. You can most closely achieve that factory type finish by applying a thin coat of acrylic. Refer to the manufacturer’s warranty.

Isn’t it hard to fix an area that is damaged?

What if I drag a large piece of furniture across it and leave a scratch? Acrylic finishes that are scratched can often be spray buffed or burnished so that the scratch is either less noticeable or repaired altogether. In many cases, applying a thin coat over the scratch is helpful. Call your local ServiceMaster Clean professionals and let us repair the damaged area.

Will furniture scratch floors with acrylic finish?

Furniture that is broken, in ill repair or not fitted with the proper floor protectors may damage the finish. Inspect all furniture before acrylic installation and apply proper protectors.

How long will it take to have my floors coated with acrylic?

Preparation will depend upon the condition of the existing floor, current number of coats, repairs required, etc. When applying an acrylic finish, stripping of the old finish is usually necessary. When that’s the case, finish removal plus the application of 3 coats of finish requires 1 hour for every 150 ft2 of flooring. If a floor does not require stripping, it can generally be shower scrubbed which is a procedure used for preparing a floor for receiving a new layer of finish. Once that has taken place, a floor can be recoated at anywhere from 4,000 to 6,000 square feet per hour.

Will the application of acrylic disrupt my business?

Unless your facility is open 24 hours, we can work after hours and the area worked on can be up and running the next business day. If your facility is open 24 hours every day, we can work with you to determine the hours that are least busy. During those hours we can come, cordon off traffic areas and work in such a manner so as to minimize disruption of your work environment.

Does acrylic finish yellow? Our acrylic finishes are non-yellowing.

Can I use household cleaning products on my floors?

All acrylic floor finishes can be damaged by highly alkaline products and alcohols such as the kind that you might see in hand sanitizers. If you must clean your floor yourself, we recommend using a neutral cleaning agent specifically recommended for cleaning acrylic floor finishes. We can provide more information on a suitable product.

How often do I clean my floors?

Floors should definitely be cleaned when they appear to be dirty. It is good practice to clean floors before it gets to that level because the floor can accumulate many tiny abrasive particles which can scratch it and mar its appearance. It is generally best to dry mop a floor with a microfiber cloth and then damp mop the floor with an appropriate cleaning solution to get up the soil.

When will I be able to walk on my floors?

Hard-surface floors treated with an acrylic finish can be walked on within an hour after the last coat was applied. We recommend allowing the floor to dry for 24 hours before allowing heavy traffic on it.

Will the application process produce dust?

Our finish removal and floor preparation procedures are all done wet or damp to help minimize the generation of airborne dust.

I think my floor's appearance should be improved, but I'm concerned about the price. What should I do?

Consider the cost of non-action. Any finish will enhance the appearance of your floor and provide protection as well. Acrylics provide shorter term yet less expensive protection.

How do I maintain this floor after the acrylic application?

Leave the daily cleaning to the professionals at ServiceMaster Clean. We offer daily, weekly or monthly cleaning services for your facility. If you should choose to do some of the cleaning yourself, pre-clean the floor in order to get all of the particulate soils off the floor such as dirt and sand, then mop the floor with a neutral cleansing agent and preferably a microfiber mop. Make sure to change the water and rinse the mop frequently to prevent the mop from leaving soil behind.

Do I need to do anything prior to the technician arriving for my scheduled service?

Yes, we ask that you remove breakables from the tops of furniture in the breakroom, lobby, conference room and other areas we will be cleaning. Pick up items from the floor such as rugs, plants, trash containers, recycle bins, file cabinets, chairs, etc. Vacuum or dust mop all debris found on your floors prior to your cleaning. If items are too large to move, consult with your technician.

Do I have to move furniture?

Yes. We do not remove heavy items such as file cabinets, conference room tables, book cases, lobby furniture, and large pieces of furniture. We recommend that you have any such items moved prior to your appointment date. If items are too large to move, consult with your technician.

Are there instructions to follow after my hard-surface floors are cleaned?

Before you walk on your floors, it’s best to allow drying time of at least 1 hour. We recommend allowing 24 hours before walking on it with heavy traffic. Be cautious and protect floors from getting wet for 24 hours after application of either finish as it is not thoroughly cured yet. You can return furniture to your floors (with suggested use of felt pads) after 12 hours and return rugs to floors after 12 hours.

HARD-SURFACE FLOORS (URETHANE)

Can I strip floors with urethane finish?

Urethane is strippable if necessary. However, when the product reaches the end of its life cycle, it can be abraded and recoated without stripping. ServiceMaster Clean has products and procedures designed specifically for this purpose.

How often do I buff? Urethane is NEVER buffed. Buffing may actually diminish the gloss of the finish.

Is urethane slippery when wet?

Any coated surface can be slippery when wet. Our urethane product is considered to have acceptable slip resistance according to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) B101.3-2012 test method for measuring wet dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) of common hard-surface floor materials. We offer optional additives to create high slip resistance (lower probability of slipping) for wet environments or areas of concern.

How long will urethane floors last? Wear of any finish depends greatly on traffic, use and cleaning practices; an average lifespan is 2 years.

Does urethane have a span odor during application?

rethane finish contains no VOCs or solvents, which are often the source of span and even harmful fumes. It has a very light, almost unnoticeable, clean scent.

Isn’t urethane more expensive than a traditional acrylic finish?

Yes and no. The cost of product per square foot for the application of urethane finish is more than an acrylic finish. However, customers will see a return on the initial investment in urethane because of the reduced need for ongoing regular maintenance. As a building owner, this will also result in fewer disruptions within the facility.

Will applying urethane void my manufacturer’s warranty on the floor?

It may. However, most factory warranties do not cover scratching, wear and abrasion. If your floor has reached this stage, your best option is to protect it. Many factory finishes, like urethane, will eventually wear out. You can most closely achieve that factory type finish by applying a thin coat of urethane. Refer to the manufacturer’s warranty.

Isn’t it hard to fix an area that is damaged?

What if I drag a large piece of furniture across it and leave a gouge? Urethane finish is relatively easy to repair. Call your local ServiceMaster Clean professionals and let us repair the damaged area.

Will furniture scratch floors with urethane finish?

Furniture that is broken, in ill repair or not fitted with the proper floor protectors may damage the finish. Inspect all furniture before urethane installation and apply proper protectors.

How long will it take to have my floors coated with urethane?

Preparation will depend on the condition of the existing floor, current number of coats, repairs required, etc. The coating application can be accomplished at a rate of 750 square feet per hour with a two-person crew.

Will the application of urethane disrupt my business?

The initial application process will require stripping any existing coatings and applying urethane coating plus drying time. This process can be done after hours and will require only daily cleaning for the life of the finish, averaging two years. Because there is no buffing or recoating for that time period, there will be no other disruptions. The reapplication process will not require further stripping.

Does urethane finish yellow? Our urethane finish is UV resistant and will not yellow.

Can I use household cleaning products on my floors?

Floors with urethane finish are easy to clean, and we recommend a neutral cleansing agent. We can provide more information on a suitable product.

How often do I clean my floors?

Urethane requires only damp mopping on a daily basis or the use of an auto scrubber with a white pad, red pad or a soft brush. Never dry buff or dry scrub your floor; a loss of gloss may occur.

When will I be able to walk on my floors? The most rapid dry time is four hours, but we recommend allowing eight hours before walking on the floor.

Will the application process produce dust? Procedures that are required to prepare the floor can be done with a wet screening and/or wet conditioning pad, thereby reducing dust.

I think my floor's appearance should be improved, but I'm concerned about the price. What should I do?

Consider the cost of non-action. Urethane not only makes your floors shiny, which gives the perception of cleanliness, but it protects your flooring investment. Floors are subject to traffic wear patterns, chemicals and stains as well as scratching. Applying a urethane finish will protect your floors and extend their life span. Compared to the cost of our recommended traditional acrylic floor maintenance program, urethane should represent a cost savings for you.

How do I maintain this floor after the urethane application?

eave the daily cleaning to the professionals at ServiceMaster Clean. We offer daily, weekly or monthly cleaning services for your facility. Urethane finish requires only damp mopping on a daily basis or the use of an auto scrubber with a white or red pad or a soft brush. Mop with a properly diluted neutral cleansing agent and warm water. Overuse of cleaning chemicals can build up and leave a residual film on the floor. Never buff your floor; a loss of gloss may occur.

Do I need to do anything prior to the technician arriving for my scheduled service?

Yes, we ask that you remove breakables from the tops of furniture in the breakroom, lobby, conference room and other areas we will be cleaning. Pick up items from the floor such as rugs, plants, trash containers, recycle bins, file cabinets, chairs, etc. Vacuum or dust mop all debris found on your floors prior to your cleaning. If items are too large to move, consult with your technician.

Do I have to move furniture?

Yes. We do not remove heavy items such as file cabinets, conference room tables, book cases, lobby furniture, and large pieces of furniture. We recommend that you have any such items moved prior to your appointment date. If items are too large to move, consult with your technician.

Are there instructions to follow after my hard-surface floors are cleaned?

Before you walk on your floors, it’s best to allow drying time of at least 4 hours but we recommend 8 hours. Be cautious and protect floors from getting wet for 24 hours after application of either finish as it is not yet thoroughly cured. You can return furniture to your floors (with suggested use of felt pads) after 24 hours and return rugs to floors after 24 hours.

Commercial Cleaning FAQ's - Carpet

 

 

How long will it take to have my carpets cleaned at my business?

The amount of time will be contingent on the size of the area needing to be cleaned and processes used, either low moisture, portable extraction, or truck-mount extraction, in terms of efficiencies and time. A highly trained ServiceMaster Clean technician can help you choose a program that best meets your needs and schedule.

Will carpet cleaning be disruptive to my business?

The team at ServiceMaster Clean will work with you to schedule a time after hours or we can develop a customized program to clean your carpets in sections. Our technician will inform you of estimated dry times needed.

Can I use household carpet cleaners for spot removal?

We recommend using only ServiceMaster Clean products. For more information, contact our Redmond location at 425-867-5025.

How often do I need to get my carpets professionally cleaned?

To keep the carpets in your business in good shape, we recommend setting up your business on a carpet care program to provide regular care and maintenance which can help extend the life of your carpets. It’s best to get your carpets cleaned quarterly using our low moisture method to remove soil before it gets ground-in your carpet fibers. By doing a quarterly carpet cleaning, you may only need a professional deep cleaning carpet service once a year.

When will I be able to walk on my floors after carpet cleaning?

It’s best to allow drying time of six to eight hours before you can walk on your carpet. It is best to wait two days before placing heavy furniture back onto carpet if not using blocks.

Will there be an odor?

Depending on the type of carpet we’re cleaning, you may notice a faint scent. This is especially prevalent when cleaning wool carpets. The amount of time it takes for the odor to dissipate is usually within an hour but varies based on air circulation, heat and humidity. A big difference in the way ServiceMaster cleans carpet compared to many of our competitors is that we do not put soap in our rinse water. We pre-spray the carpets, remove the spots, then use clean water extraction, ensuring we do not leave any soapy residue behind. This allows for fresh, clean carpets.

Do I need to do anything prior to the technician arriving for my scheduled service?

Yes. Remove breakables from the tops of furniture in the room we will be cleaning. Pick up items from the floor in areas you want cleaned, such as rugs, plants, trash cans, etc. Pre-vacuum all areas to be cleaned.

Do I have to move furniture?

To get the best results with professional carpet cleaning, we recommend removing furniture from the rooms we will be cleaning. Items we clean around instead of moving include file cabinets, conference room tables, bookcases, lobby furniture and large pieces of furniture.

Are there instructions to follow after my carpets are cleaned?

Immediately after cleaning, it’s best to allow carpets to dry for 6-8 hours before walking on them. Walking on them may flatten the fibers. Use air movers if needed to help air circulation as this will speed up the drying time. If a carpet protector such as Scotchgard was applied, foot traffic should be minimized for up to 24 hours to let the product cure. Don’t move any furniture back in place until carpet is completely dry or Scotchgard carpet protector has cured.

Mold FAQ

What is Mold? Mold is a fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of mold exist but estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps three hundred thousand or more. Mold spreads and reproduces by making spores. Spores can survive conditions that are too sunny, hot, cold, dry or wet for mold to grow. When spores are released they can be carried by air or water to new locations. Where Does Mold Come From? Molds thrive in moist environments created by a flood, slow leak, broken pipe or just high humidity. Without water mold, cannot grow. Mold also needs a food source, oxygen and a temperature between 40 degrees and 100 degrees F. How Does Mold Spread? For molds to grow and reproduce, they only need an organic food source, such as cellulose, which is found in building materials such as wood and drywall. Are There Any Warning Signs to Look For? If there are dark spots on your ceiling, floors or walls, this is a sure sign of mold growth. Musty odors and mildew are often signs that mold may be growing in your home. Respiratory and allergy symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, trouble breathing and wheezing are a common indicator of mold growth as well. Also, high humidity levels such as condensation on glass and metal surfaces are a warning sign of mold. The Special Challenges of Mold: Despite what’s readily known about mold, it remains the subject of a lot of confusion.

  • Mold is an issue that can affect the health of your family and compromise the physical structure of your home
  • Mold and mildew grow best in warm, damp and humid conditions
  • Mold may never become visible, since it can grow in the walls and under the floor
  • If more than two days have passed, any wet materials will be affected by mold, even if it’s not yet visible
  • Whether you can see a problem or merely suspect its presence, only a professional can help identify the source and extent of the challenge
  • Home remedies like bleach can cause more problems

Can I Get Rid of Mold By Myself? Doing it yourself is not recommended. At ServiceMaster Restore®, our experts have completed intensive mold remediation training as well as detailed instruction in the proper procedures for handling mold claims.

Water Damage FAQ

How long will it take my property to dry?
Drying time is determined by a combination of factors, including the location, duration and source of water, the types of building materials, the weather conditions and how quickly emergency services begin.

How do I know when my property is completely dry?
Proper testing with our specialized equipment is the correct way to determine if things are completely dry. Touch along may be a false indicator.

Will turning up the heat help dry things out?
Not necessarily. We will adjust the temperature to its optimum setting for the proper drying conditions. Please do not change the setting or shut off the HVAC system; doing so may prolong the drying process.

What about my wet furniture?
The extent of damage and the construction of the furniture will determine if your furniture can be resorted. Your furniture must be dried before damage can be adequately assessed. Non salvageable furniture will be documented for you, and if any items need to be discarded, a customer relies form will need to be signed.

Do I need to move out of my property during this process?
If you file an insurance claim, you may receive guidance from you insurance representative. However, this is a decision you must reach on your own. Here are several things to consider. Safety is paramount. Our equipment is as childproof as possible but does require supervision to make sure no children play with it. Air movers and dehumidifiers will create noise.

Does everything need to be moved out during restoration?
Not usually. If items need to be mounted out, we will let you know in advance.

Should I open the windows to help the drying process?
Opening your windows to assist the drying process is not always recommended. Outside weather conditions may vary, so the technician will determine when and if the outside air is appropriate.

Why does my specialty floor need to be removed?
Nonporous flooring can trap water and prevent it from drying properly.

 

 

First Steps for Handling a Frozen Pipe

With the cold winter weather upon us, homeowners must be aware of the possibility of frozen pipes and the resulting water damage that can occur if the hazard is not dealt with quickly and properly. Luckily, frozen pipes can be remedied and avoided altogether with a few simple steps.

Frozen Pipe Prevention

Frozen Pipe

Once outside temperatures reach the freezing point, the water inside your pipes is at risk for freezing as well. Pipe location plays a part in the likelihood that the water inside will freeze. Pipes that are exposed to the outdoor air, such as swimming pool lines, hose bibs, water lines that are located in unheated areas of the home such as basements and garages, and lines that run along non-insulated exterior walls, are more likely to freeze. When water freezes, it expands by 10%, putting pressure on whatever contains it. As the water inside a pipe continues to freeze and expand, it creates a buildup of water pressure that will eventually cause the pipe to become compromised and “burst,” leaking water onto the surrounding areas. Frozen pipes can often be identified by the “clanking” or banging sound made when the water inside them is freezing and expanding, and subsequent water dripping may be audible as well. Additionally, an abnormally small trickle of water coming from a sink faucet is another indication of a frozen pipe.
The water damage caused by a frozen pipe that bursts can be quite devastating, costing thousands of dollars in home repair and loss of property. Water leaking from a burst pipe can damage floors, carpeting, walls, furniture or other possessions located near the affected pipe. The cleanup associated with this type of disaster can be very difficult and lengthy.

Take Action When Pipes Freeze

If one or more of the pipes in your home are frozen, follow these tips:

  • Apply heat to the frozen pipe(s). You can use an electric hair dryer or heating pad, a space heater, or cloths soaked in hot water to warm the pipe and thaw the ice within.
  • If the pipe has not burst, once you start to treat the frozen pipe, keep the faucet turned on so that running water can assist in melting the ice.
  • If you cannot access the pipe or you cannot get it thawed, contact a professional plumber immediately in order to avoid a burst pipe and its consequences.
  • Note: If you are dealing with a burst pipe, immediately turn off the main water valve. This valve is typically located in the utility room or somewhere in the basement of the house. You’ll want to call a professional plumber to assess and repair the damage to your pipe(s).

Air Duct Cleaning

Residential Air Duct Cleaning

Allow us to clear the air

Proper maintenance of your air ducts is a vital part of a home’s upkeep. It’s important to periodically check the condition of your air ducts to see if they need cleaning.

Consider having them cleaned if:

  • You see mold growth inside hard-surface ducts or on other components of your heating and cooling system
  • Your air ducts are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects
  • Your air ducts are clogged with large amounts of dust and debris

If you think duct cleaning might be a good idea for your home, talk to ServiceMaster Clean®. Our experts use professional equipment to clean your air ducts thoroughly and keep your air system running smoothly.

Air duct components that are not properly installed, maintained or operated may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris.

Change air filters based on the manufacturer’s recommendations
Vacuum regularly to help reduce pet dander, dirt and debris
Get your carpets and hard-surface floors professionally cleaned regularly

The ServiceMaster Clean Process

Our experts connect a powerful vacuum system to the air duct near the furnace.
