“My home experienced a drain backup, which resulted in the flooding of my basement. Luckily, SERVPRO of Manahawkin responded to my call immediately and sent a crew out the next day. They had to remove all my carpets and repair some of my walls, but they were very efficient during this unfortunate event. Soon enough my basement was usable again and I could not be more grateful. The crew was extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable welcoming them into my home. I would certainly recommend this company to anyone who needs repairs to their home.” 

Responding immediately with the appropriate resources ensured Kevin avoided secondary damages and allowed him to stay in his home while repairs were made. To see what other people are saying about our service, check out our Testimonials page or call our experts at 609-549-0379 for assistance.

How to Clean Your Home and Office

3/6/2020 (Permalink)

Proper cleaning can help maintain healthy families, employees, and businesses! Viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms are ever-present and can be transmitted around homes and workplaces. You know how it works, your coworker comes in and says their kids came home sick, then suddenly the entire office has a cold. These microorganisms travel by latching to moisture, dust, dirt and all kinds of particles. Luckily, cleaning and disinfecting can slow the process and make it harder for these organisms to spread!  

Here are 5 tips for cleaning in your home and office.

1. Regularly Vacuum.  

The right equipment will make all the difference! HEPA filtered vacuums are designed to get the ultrafine (really super tiny) particles that traditional vacuums won’t.  

2. Regular Dusting and Dust Control.  

Not everything can be vacuumed effectively, so you have to get in there!  Behind the soup cans, tops of the cabinets, ceiling fan blades too! Get after that built-up dust and debris that can harbor germs.   

3. Remove the Clutter.  

Too much stuff is too much stuff. When your house is packed too tight you can lose beneficial airflow and generate pockets of stagnant air and moisture. Tidy up the clutter and let the breeze blow.   

4. Use the Proper Cleaning Methods and the Proper Cleaner.  

Dirt and grime can creep into tiny nooks and crannies, making surfaces harder to sanitize, especially if you don’t do it right. Remove heavy dirt by vacuuming and washing with your cleaner of choice, then sanitize or disinfect with your favorite solution. Tip: To be sure you are using the right stuff, read the labels.  

5. Deep Clean IT.  

Time to go where no one has gone before. You know where, behind the refrigerator, behind the bed, in and under the couch. Don’t forget your vents and air filters. Heavy debris can build up in these places. Keep the change but don’t eat the french fries.   

6. BONUS TIP: Call SERVPRO of Manahawkin  

We know that deep cleaning can be tough and time-consuming. SERVPRO of Manahawkin has the tools and expertise you need to freshen up your living and workspace.

Authentically Botanical Technology

Green Products 

Customers are always concerned about the products we use while servicing their home whether it be from a loss due to water, fire, mold damage or just general cleaning.   

You can rest assured that SERVPRO Industries provides every local franchise with the safest products needed with “Authentically Botanical Technology”. 

The products we use are Authentically Botanical, but what does that mean? Let’s explore the meaning behind the term Authentically Botanical and the commitment to our customers to use products that are safe for them as well as the environment. 

Customers have asked what do we mean when we say our products are authentically botanical? “Authentic” is defined as not false or copied, genuine, real. “Botanical” means a substance obtained from a plant. 

One of the products we use is a disinfectant that was listed as one of the world’s first and is still the ONLY authentically botanical disinfectant technology. 

It doesn’t use synthetic active ingredients but contains thyme and other essential oils, that are nonhazardous and sustainable, to kill the germs.
