When Disaster Strikes, Customers Can Count on a Best in Class Brand

2/15/2022 (Permalink)

Franchise 500 #1 in category SERVPRO ranks #1 in the Cleaning and Restoration category for the 19th consecutive year.

SERVPRO of Gurnee is proud to announce that SERVPRO has been recognized again as one of the best overall franchise opportunities by Entrepreneur magazine’s 2022 Franchise 500, the industry’s most comprehensive franchise ranking. Evaluated on categories such as growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power, SERVPRO was named the #8 overall franchise system, and #1 in the cleaning and restoration industry for the 19th consecutive year.

“SERVPRO is built on the foundation of outstanding customer service, industry-leading training and the success of following a proven system,” said SERVPRO CEO Rick Isaacson. “On behalf of the more than 1,900 SERVPRO franchises across the U.S. and Canada, we are honored by this recognition. 

“The SERVPRO brand and its franchisees share a strong partnership, working together to set and achieve goals which have allowed us to grow each year for more than half a century despite the challenges many businesses have faced, especially over the past 18-24 months.”

“The past year has been one of the most challenging for businesses in recent memory, which made putting together our 43rd annual Franchise 500 list more enlightening than ever,” said Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feifer. “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”

SERVPRO franchise owners pride themselves on being “ready for whatever happens,” Isaacson said, which helped the company jump two spots from its #10 ranking in 2021.

“Our franchisees have a ‘never say no’ mentality, working together with other owners to make sure we are able to satisfy all of our customers’ and clients’ cleanup, remediation and restoration needs, which allows us to ‘Keep it Green,’ as we like to say.

“We pride ourselves on rushing in when others are running out – whether that is in response to a natural disaster such as a hurricane, flood or tornado; cleaning up after a home or business water or fire loss; or helping clean and sanitize spaces from unseen threats like COVID-19. Maintaining our position for nearly 20 years as the best franchise in our category on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list validates our long-standing strategy for growing our brand: invest in franchisee training and support and commit resources to continually improving our infrastructure.”

The On-Call SERVPRO team arrived soon and removed items damaged by the water, setup fans & a de-humidifier to dry up the moisture. Everyone I dealt with from SERVPRO was very friendly & helpful.

3 ways to prevent Mold Growth in your bathrrom

6/4/2019 (Permalink)

Removing excess water after you shower can help prevent Mold

3 Ways to Prevent Mold Growth in Your Bathroom

Bathrooms are one of the most common places for mold to grow in the home. Bathroom mildew usually grows due to the intense amount of humidity that most bathrooms let off. It is nearly impossible to prevent moisture from entering most bathrooms, but there are some ways to help prevent mold from growing in these environments. 

1. Use a Swamp Cooler

Mold loves moisture, and bathrooms are typically the moistest room in a home. Swamp coolers can help you control a humidity problem to prevent any mildew from growing. They help dry out the air in your bathroom to prevent mold or mildew from growing. That being said, they are not completely effective, so other measures should be taken. Keeping your bathroom clean and doing a regular check for mold or mildew growth can help prevent expensive and costly issues. 

2. Wash Your Shower Curtain

Shower curtains are one of the most prominent places for mold to grow. Often times people do not think about washing their shower curtains. When you shower, moisture gets on the curtain and can often stay there for hours. Pulling the curtain out straight can help the moisture dry faster. Also make sure to wash towels, washcloths and bath mats on a regular basis as these can also attract mold. If you notice any mold on your towels or mats, be sure to call a mold remediation specialist right away. 

3. Keep it Clean

The bathroom is one of the most dreaded places to clean but is also one of the most necessary. Because of the excessive moisture in bathrooms, mildew and mold can grow quickly in these areas. Using a squeegee after each shower is a pain but very effective in preventive bathroom mildew. Use the proper cleaning supplies each time and try to clean your bathroom at least once a week. 

Cleaning your bathroom properly can go a long way but may not always prevent bathroom mildew. It is important to check your bathroom for mildew or mold on a regular basis, and you should call a professional if you notice any signs of mold growth.

Air Quality and Houseplants

5/9/2019 (Permalink)

Over 26 species of plants can clean the air in your home

Sure, that potted fern is pretty, but can it really help with the air quality in your home?

Plants are notoriously adept at absorbing gases through pores on the surface of their leaves. It's this skill that facilitates photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert light energy and carbon dioxide into chemical energy to fuel growth. Indoor plants help with removing harmful compounds from the air.

Scientists studying the air-purification capacities of indoor plants have found that plants can absorb many other gases in addition to carbon dioxide, including a long list of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Benzene (found in some plastics, fabrics, pesticides and cigarette smoke) and formaldehyde (found in some cosmetics, dish detergent, fabric softener and carpet cleaner) are examples of common indoor VOCs that plants help eliminate. These VOCs and other indoor air pollutants (such as ozone) have been linked to numerous acute conditions, including asthma and nausea, as well as chronic diseases such as cancer and respiratory illnesses.

An indoor plant's ability to remove these harmful compounds from the air is an example of phytoremediation, which is the use of any plant — indoors or out — to mitigate pollution in air, soil or water.

Some of the plants that scientists have found most useful in removing VOCs include Japanese royal ferns, spider plants, Boston ferns, purple waffle plants, English ivy, areca palms, golden pothos, aloe vera, snake plants and peace lilies.

Clean Air is important when it comes to your home and since winter is still keeping everyone indoors, clean indoor air is a must.

Why it's important to review your Insurance

3/1/2019 (Permalink)

When's the last time you had a review?

When was the last time you evaluated your coverages with your agent? Your agent can do an annual check and make sure you are covered where you need it (and aren't paying for coverages you've outgrown). Life changes fast, make sure your insurance keeps up. If you have been wondering if you could bundle your policies, need a different life insurance policy, or bought a new boat, you could use an insurance check. Contact your agent and schedule a brief review today.

Update Home Inventory

Your home inventory is a tool that your agent can use to determine the right level of coverage for your homeowner insurance. Plus, if you have a claim, having an up-to-date inventory will benefit you and get your claim paid faster. If you haven't done an inventory on your home in a while, we have some tips on where to start. If you have completed an inventory, right after the holidays are and ideal time to update! Be sure to share the updated home inventory with your agent when you're done.

Right-Size Your Life Insurance

Life insurance is not one-size-fits-all. Your coverage needs to evolve over time. If you don't have a policy yet, now is a great time to talk to your agent about what type of policy would best suit your needs (and your budget.) We have six things to look for in a life insurance policy.

If you do already have life insurance, is it working hard for you? Could you get more benefit out of your policy while you are still living? Maybe. Talk to your agent about the ways you can make your existing policy work for you and your family.

Earn Discounts

Did you know that you can play a part in determining your auto insurance rates? Check with your agent to see if you qualify for a program that can help you earn discounts based on your good driving behavior. You can also monitor your vehicle health and environmental impact in the process.

If you have a teen driver in the house, you may be able to save even more with a Young Driver Safety program. With this program, drivers under the age of 25 can learn safe driving behaviors, and help you earn discounts on your auto policy premiums.

Prepare for the Unexpected

You try to be as prepared as possible, but you never know what is right around the corner. Prepare for unexpected risks with an umbrella policy. Umbrella earns its name because the coverage arches over your vehicle and homeowner's insurance to provide an extra layer of protection: it starts where vehicle and homeowner's insurance liability limits stop. You might be surprised by all the things umbrella policies cover for an affordable price.
