3 Tips to Prepare Your St. Augustine Business For Natural Disasters

4/19/2021 (Permalink)

Pouring rain and text that says 24/7 You can't plan storm damage, but you can make a plan to handle storm damage. SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/ St. Augustine Beach is here to help!

You need the April showers to bring May flowers, but you don't need the water & storm damage that can come with all the Spring rain.

Natural disasters such as hurricanes and flooding can threaten the safety of your business and employees. That’s why it’s essential to have a plan in place that can help you minimize damage and ensure your workers are protected. Below are a few tips for developing a protocol plan, including when to contact emergency cleaning services.

How to Prepare Your Company for a Natural Disaster

1. Identify the Risks

As a business owner, you must prepare for disasters, both large and small, natural or manmade. The first step in doing this is to identify situations that pose a risk. For instance, in Florida, hurricanes are a top threat. Other risks might include fires, tornadoes, or power outages. If your business is considered high-risk, such as a laboratory that contains hazardous materials, identifying the potential problems will help you prepare accordingly with an evacuation and disaster recovery plan. 

2. Rehearse Evacuation Drills

Once you know which threats to prepare for, conduct drills with all of your employees so they know what to do in case of an emergency. This should include evacuating the building in the event of a fire, or taking shelter if there’s a tornado warning. Employees should know where all of the emergency exits are located, as well as what rooms or closets are away from windows. If you work with hazardous chemicals, have a list of personnel that will be responsible for turning off flames and other ignition sources and shutting off all electrical equipment. Follow up the drills with a discussion so you can go over any potential challenges that may affect the success of the evacuation. Some issues might include keeping employees organized while evacuating and keeping track of personnel. 

3. Make a Recovery Plan

Each day your business is down following a natural disaster is a blow to your bottom line. That’s why it’s essential to write a recovery plan. Identify the essential systems that your business needs to function so you know which issues must be addressed first. For instance, emergency cleaning services such as fire restoration, mold remediation, and water extraction will ensure your environment is safe and comfortable so that employees can get back to work as soon as possible.

If your business endures damage during a natural disaster, turn to the team at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach.

3 Benefits of Spring-Cleaning your office or Business

4/14/2021 (Permalink)

Wipe down and deep cleaning of office materials You have enough to do, let SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/ St. Augustine Beach handle your business's spring cleaning this year!

Over time, dirt and grime can accumulate in even the most carefully maintained offices or businesses. A spring cleanup, including carpet cleaning and dusting, will help your business maintain a positive impression and make your office a healthier place to work. Check out the reasons below for more information on why you should invest in professional cleaning services this spring. 

Why Does Your Commercial Space Need Spring-Cleaning? 

1. Improved Air Quality 

Mold developing in the carpets releases spores, which could potentially cause health effects. Dust and germs can also travel through air ducts, spreading strange odors and diseases that may affect your employees, customers, and visitors. Professional carpet cleaning and duct inspections will improve the air quality throughout your building. These services can reduce your employees' sick days by minimizing germs and irritants, making your entire business more productive. 

2. Durable Furnishings

Trapped dirt in the fibers of your carpet and furnishings can gradually wear down the material. Your AC system can also be affected by dust, restricting airflow and enforcing the equipment to work harder than necessary. The additional degradation will eventually cause frequent breakdowns and premature failure. Duct and carpet cleaning will minimize your maintenance costs and help you get the most out of your investments. 

3. Increased Efficiency 

Disorganized stockrooms and filing cabinets will lead to wasted time looking for products or paperwork, which can be frustrating for your employees. Spring cleaning is also a chance to reorganize your storage systems, making it easier for your team to find what they need at a moment's notice. You can also take the time to create more efficient spaces by putting supplies within easy reach. 

If your business or office space is due for spring cleaning, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/ St. Augustine Beach. Our team of certified technicians have the tools and the training to handle everything from carpet cleaning to water stain removal for customers through St. Augustine, FL, and surrounding areas. We also offer emergency cleaning services in case the unexpected occurs.

Why Choose SERVPRO for Major Commercial Losses?

3/11/2021 (Permalink)

We have a network of over 1,700 SERVPRO franchises to leverage if needed for extra equipment, man-power, supplies, etc. We have a supportive system to help you with your claim process, working with all insurance agencies and carriers. We are dedicated to providing St. Johns County with excellent customer service! Being able to successfully operate a business for a sustained amount of time is always impressive. Our location had humble beginnings in 2015 - we opened with two full-time employees, two trucks and barely enough equipment to complete a proper water damage dry-out in residential home. We looked up to companies that have been in business for a while and have mastered the ability to overcome increased competition, changing market conditions and insurance landscape, changes in the industry, and other adversities a business may face in a span of 30+ years.

Fast forward to this past year, we are one the fastest growing SERVPRO locations in Florida. In we set a record for St. Johns County (for the restoration industry) helping more than 500 customers/neighbors recover from various types of damages.  

This rapid growth has not gone unnoticed. Obviously, we received many accolades from SERVPRO corporate, as well as much recognition and admiration by local Property Restoration professionals.

Most are supportive, some felt threatened by our success and began a campaign to undermine our achievements and network of referrals we have created. One thing is common, these competitors often bolster how long they have been in business.

With that we wanted to take this time and alert all consumers out there that simply having been in business for a "long period of time" should not be the lone factor qualifying one for a project. If a company has been around for that long, typically it must have a reputation, so always check reviews. Always check their community involvement, competency of their staff, and all other relevant information, such as social media, websites etc. It is very easy to get complacent, older companies tend to have an older equipment inventory, low levels of urgency, sense of entitlement, and unwillingness to adapt to newer market conditions and industry trends.

It is a great achievement to be able to sustain longevity in such competitive industry (Restoration), albeit, often companies that bolster their time in business as the core for their qualifications lack major components to truly be able to offer services that are better than competition. As a savvy consumer one should always check consumer reviews, project management’s credentials, condition of equipment and relevance, as well as the organization’s community involvement and their local “footprint”. If a company has been in business for more than 30 years and is truly the industry leader and an active member of the community – these types of companies rarely leverage time in business to swing preferences their way, as everyone knows who they are anyway! If you must mention you have been around for 30 + years, maybe you should change things up a bit and become more noticeable… Just a thought.

Commercial cleaning... area's that might get overlooked

1/9/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Green Means Clean Advertisement SERVPRO of Greater St Augustine / St Augustine Beach takes pride in providing exceptional customer service. We go above and beyond for all customers!

Commercial Cleaning – Don’t forget the Area Above the Ceiling!

It’s a common practice for many hotels, restaurants, and healthcare facilities to plan and budget for hiring a commercial cleaning company for quarterly, semi-annual, or annual cleaning of carpets, floors, and even equipment, to ensure that their guests, residents, patients, and even visiting family members will not only enjoy and provide favorable reviews about their experience, but also that they will not be exposed to any potential health hazards because of the proactive measures that were taken.

At times though, during this planning process, one area that can get overlooked, is above the drop ceiling in the kitchens, dietary, dining, and possibly even patient service areas.  There are several reasons these areas can be so critical.

  1. There is typically more heat in many of these areas, due to the equipment in use, as well as moisture from hot water and steam from dish machines, etc…
  2. Pests are attracted to these areas because of the smells, food and nesting materials they can find, and the darkness and lack of activity.

Contamination from rodent hairs, urine, and feces, is a concern and not to mention the damage they can do from gnawing on electrical wires and other parts of the structure.

And while it may be a common practice for these types of facilities to require their pest control providers to visually inspect the ceilings during their visits and to document any evidence of any of these issues, there is often a disconnect as to who should be responsible for cleaning up what is found.  Very often the documented issues that are found are not taken care of because the pest provider does not offer that type of cleanup service, and the facility itself does not have the manpower or expertise to effectively address these types of issues.

So, the area could remain contaminated, which could contribute to the possibility of several problems:

  1. Any maintenance that requires removal of any ceiling tiles could expose the workers and employees to possible health issues related to rodent contamination.
  2. Food safety could be compromised below the affected areas
  3. Rodent issues could develop to the point where customers or employees start to see live rodents, because the pest company was unable to determine if there was ongoing activity in the building because the original evidence that was documented was never cleaned up!

So, what does all of this have to do with SERVPRO?  Well, I’ll tell you…SERVPRO not only has a team of service professionals capable of quarterly, semi-annual, or annual cleaning of the floors, carpets, equipment, and even walls, but they also have their own products for cleaning and disinfecting the area above the ceiling. Not only that; they are experts at identifying water damage and mold, so while they are working above your ceiling, they can also determine if there are any areas where mold be growing, or water leaks may be evident.

This is a proactive service that while it may not be visible to your guests, residents, visiting family members, and even your own valued employees; it could be more valuable for the protection of “your brand” than any of the other services mentioned.

Why? Because no one wants to find out after the fact that…

  1. You have a rodent issue that is being seen by your customers or employees (and of course, posted on social media), that may have been prevented, because your pest technician noticed new evidence of pest activity, because the old evidence had been removed with the last cleaning.
  2. Mold can cause health effects. 

So, while SERVPRO will not provide any type of rodent or pest control/elimination service, nor give any recommendations as to how to prevent such issues, we will proactively provide the cleaning of these critical areas, so that you can

  • Get more accurate reporting and better service from your pest program provider because you have provided a clean environment in a key area, where any new activity can be recognized and addressed.
  • Proactively monitor this critical area and minimize any damage that might be caused by water leaks; such as the development of mold, weakening of the structural integrity of the building due to excessive moisture, or even ceiling tile replacement due to water damage.

While it is true that many of the services SERVPRO offers are reactive in nature, and that our goal is to be, Faster to any Disaster and to make it "Like it never even happened," it’s also true that, “An Ounce of Prevention, is Worth a Pound of Cure!”  That is especially true when it comes to “Brand Protection.”

YOUR BRAND IS WORTH PROTECTING! Let SERVPRO help you make sure that nothing is overlooked… (904) 429-4457

SERVPRO: AN ESSENTIAL CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE SERVICE PROVIDER

SERVPRO CONSIDERED AN ESSENTIAL CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE SERVICE PROVIDER:

The bearer of this letter is a professional performing essential services, as set forth in the Shelter in Place Order or Emergency Declaration issued by your state or local government.  The bearer is engaged in support of critical infrastructure work as defined below.

This designation was further broken down into categories which would more clearly indicate who would be considered as part of this group:

  • Workers to ensure continuity of building functions;
  • Workers who support hazardous materials response and cleanup; and

Nicotine Odor Removal: We Can Do It!

3/6/2020 (Permalink)

Cigarette / Nicotine odor removal Cigarette/Nicotine odor removal! Call (904) 429-4457 for a free estimate!

Here at SERVPRO of Greater St Augustine we often get hired to remove cigarette and cigar smoke contamination.  The process  of removal varies based on the strength of contamination or smell, and the area affected. Frequently our customers are not sure of how involved the process may be. Today we wanted to share what professional removal of cigarette smoke odors entails. There are many different steps and nuances in every restoration project. Here are some of the commonly followed steps in a cigarette, cigar, and similar smoke related odor removal process that we follow:  

The process is:

Step 1: Thorough Inspection and Development of Scope of Work

*   Determine how long the cigarette smoke has impacted the area?

 o The longer the presence, the harder it will be to clean.

* Inspect the HVAC ducting, walls, ceilings, furniture, and air quality.

o Nicotine residue will cling to virtually all surfaces and will remain until removed. These surfaces will need to be cleaned thoroughly.

* Remove the furniture and contents from the structure. Place in a cleaning station outside or at your warehouse

Step 2: Ceiling: Depending on the type of ceiling, the cleaning procedures will vary.

Step 3: Walls: All walls will need to be thoroughly cleaned then rinsed using the appropriate products and procedures for nicotine residue removal.  In extreme cases, where staining was heavy and unable to be completely removed, it may be necessary to apply an appropriate sealer to cover it.

Step 4: Floors: The type of flooring is another consideration.  In carpeted areas, both the carpet and padding may need to be disposed of.  Nicotine odors, especially if they are heavy, may not be able to be removed due to the porosity of those materials.  Other types of flooring will require different cleaning methods. 

Step 5: HVAC/Ducting: Thorough cleaning of the duct work will also be necessary to eliminate any possibility of re-introducing nicotine residue into the previously cleaned areas.

Step 6: Furniture and Contents: All furniture and contents will need to be thoroughly cleaned.  In some instances, it may be necessary to discard furniture items, as the difficulty and cost to clean them, may exceed the cost of replacement.

Step 7: Deodorization:  Finally, all areas, as well as furniture and contents will need to be deodorized, to remove any lingering odors.  This process would be repeated up to 4 cycles to ensure complete elimination of all odors.

There you have it.  It’s a detailed process, but fortunately it is a process that SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach, can handle from start to finish.  One call, one company, one solution to nicotine related odor problems.  No job too big or too small.  904-429-4457.

Why get your carpet professionally cleaned?

2/24/2020 (Permalink)

Carpet cleaned by SERVPRO We work magic on carpets!! Let us prove it, (904) 429-4457

Once spring has sprung, many homeowners are motivated to start freshening up their homes for the warmer days ahead. As you tackle your own spring cleaning checklist, there’s no better time to evaluate the appearance of your carpets. If they’re looking a little dingy, schedule a professional carpet cleaning with SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach, FL. They are the local authorities on a wide variety of restoration services—from fire and water damage to carpet stains.

Here, they go over a few of the top reasons to have your carpets professionally cleaned this spring:

    • Eliminate Winter Dirt & Grime: During the winter months, it’s easy for kids, pets, and adults alike to track in dirt, mud, and debris. This can leave your floors looking unsanitary and unsightly. The surest way to restore them is with a thorough, professional cleaning that goes deep into the carpet fibers to extract stains and erase discoloration.
    • Remove Allergy Triggers: As exciting as it is for spring to arrive, it’s also the worst time of year for allergies. Dust, pollen, and other airborne pollutants will settle within your carpet fibers and wreak havoc on any members of your household that suffer from allergies. A professional carpet cleaning will eliminate these contaminants and improve the indoor air quality of your home.
    • Prevent Mold Growth: Springtime also brings higher temperatures and increased levels of humidity, which creates the perfect breeding grounds for mold. Professionally cleaned carpets help to prevent the development of fungi by extracting moisture and leaving fibers completely dry.

Regular carpet cleanings will protect your flooring investment for years to come by keeping it plush and brilliant. Contact SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach at (904) 429-4457 to schedule an appointment, or visit them online for more details about their carpet cleaning methods.

3 Tips to Prepare Your St Augustine Business for Natural Disaster

3/6/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO St Augustine/St Augustine Beach's truck out by the Synagogue, downtown St Augustine, after hurricane Matthew's landfall in 2017.

Natural disasters such as hurricanes and flooding can threaten the safety of your business and employees. That’s why it’s essential to have a plan in place that can help you minimize damage and ensure your workers are protected. Below are a few tips for developing a protocol plan, including when to contact emergency cleaning services.

How to Prepare Your Company for a Natural Disaster

1. Identify the Risks

As a business owner, you must prepare for disasters, both large and small, natural or manmade. The first step in doing this is to identify situations that pose a risk. For instance, in Florida, hurricanes are a top threat. Other risks might include fires, tornadoes, or power outages. If your business is considered high-risk, such as a laboratory that contains hazardous materials, identifying the potential problems will help you prepare accordingly with an evacuation and disaster recovery plan. 

2. Rehearse Evacuation Drills

Once you know which threats to prepare for, conduct drills with all of your employees so they know what to do in case of an emergency. This should include evacuating the building in the event of a fire, or taking shelter if there’s a tornado warning. Employees should know where all of the emergency exits are located, as well as what rooms or closets are away from windows. If you work with hazardous chemicals, have a list of personnel that will be responsible for turning off flames and other ignition sources and shutting off all electrical equipment. Follow up the drills with a discussion so you can go over any potential challenges that may affect the success of the evacuation. Some issues might include keeping employees organized while evacuating and keeping track of personnel. 

3. Make a Recovery Plan

Each day your business is down following a natural disaster is a blow to your bottom line. That’s why it’s essential to write a recovery plan. Identify the essential systems that your business needs to function so you know which issues must be addressed first. For instance, emergency cleaning services such as fire restoration, mold remediation, and water extraction will ensure your environment is safe and comfortable, so that employees can get back to work as soon as possible.

If your business endures damage during a natural disaster, turn to the team at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach. Based in St. Johns County, FL, this locally owned and operated company specializes in a wide range of residential and commercial emergency cleaning services, including everything from carpet cleaning and fire restoration to mold remediation and water extraction. Their experts can also evaluate your emergency protocol plan and advise changes that will improve its efficiency. Call (904) 429-4457 to schedule an appointment with a representative or visit the website to learn more about their full list of emergency cleaning services.

The risk of forgoing a professional Biohazard cleanup.

SERVPRO of Greater St Augustine/St. Augustine Beach has its trucks out on a recent commercial project.

The Risks of Forgoing a Biohazard Cleanup Crew - SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach - St. Augustine | NearSay

Biohazard cleanup crews are extensively trained to handle the decontamination process of your home or business in the aftermath of many biohazard situations. Common scenarios that warrant a professional restoration include sewage backups, chemical spills, blood pathogens and methamphetamine labs.

When your property has been exposed to biological and chemical contaminants, your health is at risk. These situations all leave harmful residues behind, including bodily fluids, such as blood, medical waste, and microorganisms that can harbor viruses and toxins. When not handled quickly, these biohazard materials can rapidly spread infection and disease.

These situations should be considered emergencies that are best left to a biohazard cleanup crew. Biohazard materials can be dangerous if handled without proper training, equipment, and protection. Emergency cleaning services know how to remove these materials effectively while containing the potential spread of sickness.

If you are dealing with a crime scene, this is another reason to leave the job to a biohazard cleanup crew. These professionals are trained to cooperate with law enforcement in the aftermath of a crime. If you attempt to handle the process yourself, you pose the risk of hindering an investigation through cross-contamination or otherwise meddling with evidence.

These professionals also ensure that your property is thoroughly sanitized, even when everything looks clean. Proper sterilization will make your home or business safe again, and biohazard cleanup crews have access to commercial-grade equipment and disinfectants that you wouldn’t.

If you have recently been involved in a biohazard scenario, call the commercial restoration experts at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach. Their biohazard cleanup crew specializes in cleanup and restoration services for both residential and commercial properties. Each employee is thoroughly trained at SERVPRO’s corporate training facility, meaning that they have the skills and knowledge to handle everything from mold remediation and emergency cleaning services to storm damage restoration and water extraction in the aftermath of a flood.

Indoor Air Quality

1/2/2018 (Permalink)

This is what the coils look like on an A/C unit that has not been properly maintained. You don't want to breathe that in!

Did you know that maintaining proper air flow throughout your home or business can help keep mold from growing? 

Having your A/C unit serviced twice a year helps keep air circulating properly throughout the building. Increased quality with indoor airflow will help cut down on microbial particles in the air, which will help fight against allergies, asthma, COPD, and many other health conditions.

Additionally, Routine maintenance will save you time and money, both in the short term and long term.

Short term, your A/C unit will function more efficiently which will save you money on your monthly utilities. Changing your filters monthly significantly cuts down the amount of work required to service your A/C unit.

Long term, having your A/C unit serviced regularly will increase the life expectancy of the unit. Trust us when we say it is much cheaper to maintain the unit over time than it is to replace it!

SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach always uses licensed and insured Air conditioning professionals when we subcontract A/C maintenance and duct cleaning. Don't take shortcuts with your maintenance!

End of the Year Franchise Update

12/20/2017 (Permalink)

Hurricane Irma was so large that it covered the entire state of Florida!

2017 has been an amazing year for SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach, but it did not come without its difficult times. St. Augustine was devastated by a hurricane for the second time in two years.

Our staff works 12+ hour days for a month straight, doing everything we can to help our local community get back to their normal lives. The whole city was pushed to its limits, and once again we all rallied together to get through tough times.

Our community came together in December to celebrate the end of the year, and thanks to many of our amazing friends in St. Augustine, we were able to raise $1,500 to donate to the St. Johns Housing Partnership. 

Our Franchise now features a fleet of 10 vehicles, all capable of responding to any size disaster! 

Next year we will continue to grow, but we could not do it without the love and support of loyal customers. Thank you all for the support throughout 2017, and we look forward to many more years of service to our awesome #local community!

Replacing Your Floors? Consider the following:

12/18/2017 (Permalink)

Photos of a home after the floors were removed due to hurricane flooding. The owner replaced the floors with tile to avoid this in the future!

St. Augustine residents have now been forced to overcome the troubling outcome of two hurricanes in the past year. Many of our clients from Hurricane Matthew became repeat customers after Hurricane Irma.

Residents who have homes in low lying areas and are prone to flooding are left with little options to protect their residence from flooding in the event of another hurricane. Raising the house to be higher above sea level is expensive and time consuming.

When a home floods from a hurricane, the water is considered to be grossly contaminated. Anything porous that the water touches is considered compromised and should be removed. This includes laminate flooring, carpet, carpet pad, etc.

One step that homeowners are taking in the second rebuilding process is to add tile floors throughout the entire house. Tile is not a porous material, and does not have to be removed after a floor. While the installation of tile is more pricey, it offers one less thing to worry about after a hurricane.

Since tile is bonded directly to the concrete, water does not penetrate its surface. This allows SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach to finish the process of restoring your home in less time!

3 Reasons to get professional carpet cleaning

5/19/2017 (Permalink)

Call 904-429-4457 to get more info on SERVPRO's carpet cleaning in St. Augustine.

Once spring has sprung, many homeowners are motivated to start freshening up their homes for the warmer days ahead. As you tackle your own spring cleaning checklist, there’s no better time to evaluate the appearance of your carpets. If they’re looking a little dingy, schedule a professional carpet cleaning with SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach, FL. They are the local authorities on a wide variety of restoration services—from fire and water damage to carpet stains.


Here, they go over a few of the top reasons to have your carpets professionally cleaned this spring:



  • Eliminate Winter Dirt & Grime: During the winter months, it’s easy for kids, pets, and adults alike to track in dirt, mud, and debris. This can leave your floors looking unsanitary and unsightly. The surest way to restore them is with a thorough, professional cleaning that goes deep into the carpet fibers to extract stains and erase discoloration.

  • Remove Allergy Triggers: As exciting as it is for spring to arrive, it’s also the worst time of year for allergies. Dust, pollen, and other airborne pollutants will settle within your carpet fibers and wreak havoc on any members of your household that suffer from allergies. A professional carpet cleaning will eliminate these contaminants and improve the indoor air quality of your home.

  • Prevent Mold Growth: Springtime also brings higher temperatures and increased levels of humidity, which creates the perfect breeding grounds for mold. Professionally cleaned carpets help to prevent the development of fungi by extracting moisture and leaving fibers completely dry.


Regular carpet cleanings will protect your flooring investment for years to come by keeping it plush and brilliant. Contact SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach at (904) 429-4457 to schedule an appointment, or visit them online for more details about their carpet cleaning methods.

Our vehicles out on this State Farm water loss in St. Augustine.

Here is a copy of the email we recently received from one of our customers (email is provided as it was deliered to our office inbox):


"YESTERDAY, (7/10/16) I WAS IN AN ABSOLUTE STATE OF “I DON’T EVEN KNOW THE WORDS.”  A something had come loose or exploded or I didn’t know what but my house was in water and I have wood floors.


A called my State Farm Agent first and the second, and most important call came next-SERVPRO in St. Augustine.  In less than one hour, closer to 45 minutes, I had the most incredible group of people in my home, David, who I later found out is the owner, Starr and DJ.  They helped me find a sense of humor as they made the water disappear and gave me a great idea of what was to come next.  My STATE FARM AGENT, Who was on the ground within 24 hours even told me that if there is water damage, THIS IS THE BEST TEAM EVER TO CALL.  It has been just 27 hours since the water explosion.  My house is drying and they have already been back on site twice and even helped me find a plumber. 


DJ, AND HE HAD A NEW TEAM MEMBER TODAY, AN ARMY VETERAN, WHO I THINK MY DOG ALLIE IS PACKING HER BAGS TO GO LIVE WITH JUST MADE ME FEEL SO COMFORTABLE ABOUT THE CHAOS IN MY HOUSE TO INCLUDE ALL OF THE DIRTY DISHES THAT WERE WAITING TO GET WASHED AND ARE NOW ON THE COUNTER.


STARR ALREADY HAD BEEN BACK AND HELPED GET A PLUMBER FOR US AND JUST MADE ME FEEL LIKE I JUST FOUND MY NEW BEST FRIEND.  I STILL OWE HER MEXICAN IF SHE CAN EVER STOP SOLVING OTHER DISASTERS. 


WHAT CAN I SAY.  IF THIS HAPPENS TO YOU, YOU COULD NOT BE IN BETTER HANDS THAN THIS TEAM AND I ONLY MET A FEW OF WHAT I AM SURE IS MORE GREAT FOLKS. "
