Furnace and air duct system in a commercial building SERVPRO Of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc Cleans Air Ducts at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds

SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc offers many services; sometimes services that people would not think of.  One of the services we offer is duct cleaning, both residential and commercial.  

We are very proud that we had the honor of cleaning and disinfecting the air duct system in the Activities Building at the Jefferson County Fair Grounds.  This task was particularly important because the facilities people needed to get this building prepped in case a field hospital needs to be created due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The trained technicians at SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc were able to complete that project, which was quite large, in 2 days.  The Facilities Manager was quite happy with the speed at which we completed the project and was shocked to see how dirty our HEPA filter was after we were done. 

For all your duct cleaning and deodorization needs, contact SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc.  920-674-3002.

Damage is shown from the space heater. There is a lot of soot SERVPRO can help with even the most extreme amounts of damage.

A space heater used by a tenant renting a room in a basement caused this damage to a local home.  This before photo, taken from the main level of the home, shows the mess and damage and how the fire burned away the flooring and you can see all the debris that fell into the basement.  

Jefferson County/Oconomowoc was called in to clean up the debris and to deodorize and get this home prepped for rebuild.  The challenge with this loss was the owner of the property had recently passed away so before the assets could be transition to the benefactor, the Trust of the estate had to make the temporary decisions.  Not only has SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc worked with insurance agents, insurance adjusters and property owners, but we also have experience working with attorney's that are involved when a family Trust exists.  

At SERVPRO, if you have a unique situation and you are not sure where to turn for help, call SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc as we have the abilities to work with all different types of customers and people with a vested interest in a property. SERVPRO of 920-674-3002

SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconowoc, as a small business, wants to do whatever we can to help other small businesses during these unprecedented times.  As we, hopefully, are approaching the end to the "Safer At Home" orders that many of our States have gone through, there are tips to share with business owners on how to prepare for that.

Please know that SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc is here to help and we can help by being the deep cleaning sanitation company that you may need.  We are a professional commercial cleaner and emergency cleaning service that is local.

As states begin the process of opening their economies following shelter-in-place orders during COVID-19, the American Society of Safety Professionals is recommending return-to-work strategies and best practices that make safety and health a priority for employers in every industry.

Some states and metropolitan areas have instituted their own rules – such as requiring masks or cloth face coverings in certain industries – but you still need to address engineering and administrative controls and add a risk assessment to your return-to-work plan.  Facilities may start using a physical distancing approach. 

Other suggestions include the need to conduct symptom checks, design work areas to limit exposure, use barriers to improve physical distancing and maintain a policy on visitors entering the workplace.

SERVPRO Has Air Scrubbers (Negative Air Machines) For Rent

Air scrubber machine encassed in green plastic Negative Air Machines (Air Scrubbers) Available For Rent to Improve Air Quality

COVID-19 is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. To protect yourself, clean your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

In any commercial business setting where the work being performed is an essential service, you want to ensure that the air quality within your facility is as safe as possible.  The use of an air scrubber/negative air machine will help.  An air scrubber is used for cleaning and controlling air quality and creating negative pressure in a work area.

How It Works: Potentially contaminated air enters the unit and passes through three-stage filtration capturing respiratory droplets (aerosols), viral particles, smoke, fumes, mold spores, dust and other types of particulates. Clean air is returned to the environment. When larger areas are to be cleaned, multiple units can be strategically placed for optimum cleaning. A 12" exhaust flange allows an operator to exhaust to a remote area or create controlled negative pressure in a contained area.

Each unit features:

  • 3-stage filtration with 99.97% 0.3 micron HEPA filter.
  • Dent & corrosion proof durable polyethylene cabinet.
  • Two speed blower.
  • Built in 12” exhaust duct flange.
  • Filter monitor gauge.
  • Hour meter.
  • Heavy duty locking caster wheels.
  • Lifting handles.  
  • Stackable for transport and storage.

The specifications are:

  • Power: 115 v, 60 hz
  • Amps: 6.5 low speed/10.2 high speed
  • CFM: 1250 low speed/1650 high speed.w/ filters
  • Cord: 25’, 14/3 gauge, safety yellow
  • Dimensions: 38” x 27” x 32½ ”
  • Weight: 120 lbs.
  • ETL listed for US and Canada.

If you are interested in improving the quality of air at your place of business and renting any of these units, please contact us at SERVPRO Jefferson County/Oconomowoc.  920-674-3002

A local Oconomowoc, WI business recently had a concern that an elderly customer came into their clinic that may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus.  Because this clinic is considered an essential business as they serve the elderly population, they needed to ensure that their work environment was properly cleaned and disinfected quickly so that they could re-open their doors and service other customers.

Warehouse with cleaned floor and an empty mezzanine after post cleaning 40-Year Old Industrial Building Post-Cleaning Performed by SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc.

Industrial cleaning is a service that SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc provides and we are proud to say, quite good at it.  This industrial building in Jefferson County, Wisconsin needed to be cleaned before the new tenant moved in.  The landlord wanted the area to be as nice as possible because the previous tenant was there over 40 years so dirt and grime will add up over time.  The objective was that the new tenant would move into a clean and fresh environment in which to operate their small business.  The landlord called on the cleaning professionals at SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc to provide these industrial cleaning services.

The landlord had received a recommendation from a friend that previously used SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc for their industrial cleaning needs and was very happy with the services.  The landlord spoke with the Production Manager at SERVPRO and after answering some questions, an appointment was scheduled.  After the walk-thru was completed, the Production Manager put together an action plan and estimate.  This plan and amount was agreed upon by the landlord.

This project was scheduled for 3 days but we are proud to say that SERVPRO came in underbudget and only took 2 days to complete.  The customer was extremely happy with the end result. 

In this photo you can see a section of the warehouse after it was thoroughly cleaned and organized after all the contents were moved out.

On November 19, 2019 SERVPRO had the privilege and opportunity to present to approximately 15 different real estate professionals with Shorewest Realty and educate them on all the different services that SERVPRO provides and how we can help them sell homes faster.  Todd, the owner of SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc and his Marketing Representative Dayle conducted a "Lunch & Learn" for these professionals.  We talked about how SERVPRO can help them during times of need, such as a storm event or a catastrophe, that occurs on a property that they currently have listed.  Topics included mold remediation, odor issues and how to eliminate them, water damage, fire damage, asbestos abatement, nicotine clean-up and hoarder clean-up and organization.

Sometimes delays happen with mitigation

SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc understand the urgency of our commercial customer's needs.

Once we are on site for our inspection, we work up a plan that we go over in detail with our contact on site to ensure they have a clear understanding of our process. However, once we begin our mitigation work we may find something that puts our work on hold. An example of this would be the need to detach a water heater or a water softening system. Since we are not licensed plumbers, we will need to call in help in order for our mitigation work to continue. Since we can't always guarantee the licensed contractors we will call on for help can get to the job immediately, we may have to delay the mitigation process in order to get our contractors on site to safely and properly continue on with the mitigation. We try our best to keep the delays to a minimum but sometimes they are inevitable. 

Our commercial clients have a different set of priorities that we always take into consideration. In order to minimize business interruption, SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc only calls in reliable professionals to help. We have been working with these professionals for years.  As business owners themselves, they understand how important it is to get back to business quickly but safely. 

If you find your business or commercial property has a water or fire emergency, please call SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc at 920-674-3002 so we can help get your business back up and running as quickly as possible.

Local Jefferson County Bank Requests SERVPRO

A trust department of a local bank called SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc to a vacant house where the owner had passed away. The home needed to be cleaned before it could be listed for sale. In addition to a general cleaning of the home to make it presentable, there was a large chest freezer in the unfinished basement of this home. The freezer had been brought in to the home while the addition of the basement was being built; essentially building the basement around the freezer.  This meant there was no way go get the freezer out of the basement without destroying it or the structure.  This freezer would not fit up the narrow stairs.  This challenge alone was unique but an added twist was the fact that this freezer had not been plugged in for 10 years and was full of food prior to it being unplugged. Our technicians were prepared properly with respirators and protective gear due to the nature of the material inside the freezer. The smell was terrible. The freezer needed to be emptied and then cut in half in order to get it out of the basement.  It is in these types of situations that SERVPRO Of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc will go the extra mile to ensure each job is completed.
