Any type of loss whether it be fire or water can be anywhere from a minor loss all the way up to a large loss.

The ERP Program is a system that allows the commercial building to easily communicate with us. ERP stands for Emergency Response Plan that gives SERVPRO of Boone & Clinton Counties a layout of the building as well as all shut off valves and any other information we may need. It allows the commercial building to get on the app when a problem arises and gives them the ability to hit a button that notifies us that we need to go there.

COVID Cleaning for Commercial Properties
Many people are hesitant to go into commercial buildings due to being around people who may have been exposed to COVID-19. With this SERVPRO of Boone and Clinton Counties is part of Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned developed by SERVPRO Family Franchise. Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned is a method meant to rid of viral pathogens. This is a 3 C’s step by step program we provide for businesses: Consult, Clean, and Certify. When a commercial business has gone through our program they receive a decal sticker on their window to show their customers are in a disinfected area.
The first step of the C’s is to Consult. Consulting will determine the level of disinfecting needed for the building. Other forms of cleaning customization we consider is the size of the building, how many people are actively in the building, and the nature of the business. For example a warehouse cleaning program will look significantly different than that of a restaurant or shopping center.
The second step is Clean. The cleaning process will take measures such as: People, Process, and Product. Our technicians are prepared and equipped to not breathe the air in your facility along with spreading any pathogens. SERVPRO of Boone and Clinton Counties technicians have been trained to dispose of their PPE appropriately. Based on the level of contamination it may be required to perform various cleanings, this will ensure confirmed COVID-19 pathogens have been exterminated. All SERVPRO franchises are using CDC certified products to ensure elimination of viral pathogens.
The third and final step is to Certify. In order for your customers to feel safe in your building we will put a sticker decal that shows the cleaning and sanitization process that was taken at your business.
Create a safe environment and give your customers one less thing to think about. Give us a call at (765) 659-9600 to go through our 3 C’s Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program.
How to Dry Commercial Premises Properly
We understand that temporary closure to your Boone and Clinton County businesses can be frustrating and expensive. Our team works with premises managers to ensure that drying property is as efficient as possible, allowing you to re-open faster. When materials become wet, evaporating moisture can form a layer of saturated, humid air above the surface. This layer can slow down drying times as water on, or surfaces have nowhere to go. SERVPRO technicians can combat this vapor barrier by ensuring air circulation remains consistent throughout your business premises. We achieve this primarily by placing air-movers in the property with precise entry and exit spaces.
How do I place the air - movers?
- Use enough air-moves to create air circulation across surfaces
- Balance air-moving equipment with dehumidification
- Allow entry and exit points
How can I set up an efficient drying situation?
A property with commercial flood damage in Boone and Clinton Counties is likely to require a significant number of air-movers. However, the exact number depends upon the situation. If floodwaters have primarily affected floors, we can use less air-moving equipment. On the other hand, if there is visible wetness on walls or ceilings and fittings, carpets, and furniture, the number of air-movers must increase exponentially. SERVPRO technicians can create a circular airflow by placing air-movers at a 45-degree angle. Circular airflow can help to dry the upper areas of a property. Generally, we use one air-mover per 10 to 16 feet along walls.
How do I balance air-movers and dehumidifiers?
- A low number of air-movers to dehumidifiers can slow drying
- Too many air-movers can spread moist air causing secondary damage
- A balanced drying system ensures dehumidifiers capture any moisture in the air
Re-opening a business after flooding is a time-sensitive issue. Contact SERVPRO of Boone and Clinton Counties at (765) 659-9600.
