Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned in Jerome

Our offices in Jerome were closed for a long time, and we are finally coming back to work. The building needed a deep cleaning from the ceilings down to the floors. I knew we would have to establish more vigorous cleaning protocols to assure our employees and customers we were taking proactive steps to keep our work environment pathogen-free.

SERVPRO® of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties came out and told us about their Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned defensive cleaning program. This program is designed to help businesses reopen safely. They provided a free assessment that took into consideration the size of our business and the type of space. They identified high-frequency touchpoints, factored in foot traffic and congestion points. Then we came up with a cleaning plan that met our needs.

The SERVPRO technicians deep cleaned and sanitized the offices and helped us establish a protocol for further cleanings. Our employees and customers are confident that we are taking the steps needed to keep the workspace clean and pathogen-free.

Wildfire Risk Reduction Tips for Twin Falls?

A wildfire is raging across the landscape. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Twin Falls County.

Wildfire season is here, and it’s a good idea to look at ways you can protect your home from wildfire danger. SERVPRO® of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties has been helping the residents and business owners in Twin Falls restore fire-damaged properties for years. Here are some tips from Idaho Firewise and the National Fire Protection Association for creating defensible space and landscaping around your home:

A minimum defensible space of 100 feet is recommended for homes and outbuildings on flat ground—up to 200 feet or more on sloped sites.

Tips for Landscaping Around Your Home:

  • REMOVE dead vegetation and other flammable materials, especially within the first 5 feet of the home
  • KEEP your lawn hydrated and maintained. If it is brown, cut it down to help reduce fire intensity.
  • PRUNE tree limbs, so the lowest branches are 6 to 10 feet above the ground to help reduce the chance of fire getting into the crowns of the trees
  • MOVE construction material, trash, and woodpiles at least 30 feet away from the home and other outbuildings
  • DISPOSE of branches, weeds, leaves, pine needles, and grass clippings that you have cut to reduce fuel for the fire

“Luke's crew was dispatched to the Dallas area after the severe winter storm to deal with insurance claims. Our insurance company sent them, and they were extraordinary from the first to the last day! They were professional, courteous, very knowledgeable and helped us through our burst pipe incident for almost three weeks. They took great care to make sure that everything was properly dealt with to prevent further damage. They communicated with the insurance company and adjuster to make sure that the work would be covered. I highly recommend the whole team and would use them again if we had another incident (I pray we don't).” Ginger Ellis

Out of Date FEMA Flood Maps in Twin Falls?

KMVT 11 recently reported on Idaho’s flood risk as being drastically underreported due to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) use of old and outdated maps.

Fire Damage in Jerome Home?

A heavy shake roof is shown. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration in Jerome County.

No one was home when my house caught on fire. Some kids across the street were playing with bottle rockets during the day, and one landed on the heavy shake roof of my house and caught the roof on fire. When I arrived on the scene, it looked like a total loss from the outside, but it was actually only the roof that had burned. We were lucky.

My insurance adjuster told me to call SERVPRO® of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties, and I’m glad he did. The SERVPRO team inventoried all of our belongings and packed out everything salvageable for cleaning and restoration. Their team cleaned up the fire and soot debris and helped me pull up the water-saturated carpeting from the hallways and bedrooms. SERVPRO was with me every step of the way, from the initial cleanup to the final restoration. Now you would never know that there had been a fire in my home!
