Summer Cleaning Tips for Commercial Properties in Decatur

5/25/2022 (Permalink)

It is important to do a deep clean from one season to the next. This summer, as tenants are moving into your properties, it is important for your building in Decatur to look immaculate from the curb appeal to the floors.

Some things to do

  • Thoroughly clean the exterior of the building, and even pressure wash the walls and sidewalks if necessary.
  • Get rid of dead trees, low branches and remove all weeds.
  • Make sure all the lights are in working order
  • Call your HVAC vendor for them to inspect the AC units. You don’t want angry tenants calling you when it’s 100 degrees outside.
  • Wash outside furniture and wipe tables.
  • Inspect your property for any signs of mold. If you find spots, call SERVPRO of Decatur for a free estimate. Our technicians will help you make it “Like it never even happened.”
  • Get carpets deep cleaned

Don’t worry about property cleanliness with regularly scheduled services from professionals you can trust!

SERVPRO of Decatur can help homeowners dealing with water damage from flooding or leaks. It is important for homeowners to inspect the roof, gutters, yard, and foundation for any signs of damage. If you see some issues, contact the appropriate vendor in order to fix it as quickly as possible. A small leak in the roof can turn into a major headache throughout the home, and can not only cause water damage but also a mold problem.

If you need our help, we will inspect and do a damage assessment, begin the water removal and water extraction, use state-of-the-art equipment to dry the structure as fast as possible and provide repairs if desired.

We are a locally owned company with national resources. If your home or commercial property has any issues, please contact SERVPRO of Decatur at 404-378-9998

Have you checked your washing machine connections?

5/19/2022 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Decatur, we see this problem all the time. A homeowner calls the office with water damage due to a faulty washing machine connection. We recommend that you check your appliances regularly and fix anything immediately, do not say “I will get to it later,” because later can be too late. Remember, damages caused by lack of maintenance are not always covered by your insurance policy.

It is very common when there is water damage due to the washing machine, that a hose failure is to blame. Your machine has three hoses, two for hot and cold water, and the third to drain the water. If there is a faulty connection to the machine or wall, the chances of a problem increase dramatically. Make sure to tighten the hose. If your washing machine is not new, maybe now is a good time to replace those hoses. It is recommended that the hoses are replaced every five years or so.

Prevention is better than remediation, so take care of those small details now.

If you need help, call SERVPRO of Decatur at 404-378-9998, we are available to help 24/7.
