Happy Holidays From SERVPRO of Greater St Augustine / St Augustine Beach!!

SERVPRO Wishes our communities a happy holidays and a happy new year SERVPRO of Greater St Augustine / St Augustine Beach is Here to Help this holiday season in case of an emergency! (9040 429-4457 available 24/7/365

We want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays from SERVPRO of Greater St Augustine!! Here is a cute Christmas story, SERVPRO edition!

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the shop

Not an item was clean, not even a mop

The Dehu's were stacked in the truck with care

In hopes that Rick I. would soon be there

The owners were nestled, snug in there SERVPRO threads,

While visions of convention checks, danced in their heads

The Yes ma'am in her office, and I in my cube

We had just settled down for a long binge of YouTube

When out of the office, there arose such a clatter

We sprang from our chairs to see what was the matter

Away to the WIP board, I flew, like a flash

Broke down the door, dropped my coffee, splash

The moon on the crest of a newly polished van,

The SERVPRO franchise finishes it's Emergency Ready Plan

When what to my wondering eyes did appear,

But a new commercial job to finish, before end of year

With a tall, slender driver, so lively and quick

I knew in this moment, this must be the Rick.

More rapid than Eagles, the ProMasters that came

He whistled and shouted for his team by name,

"Hey Dale, Steve, Susan and Sally, go get Mike, Chris, Alex, and Ally!

To the top of the doors to the top of the walls! Now, document, document, document all!"

As before each job they all worked to comply,

There are very strict procedures and programs, we must qualify,

So onto the job site, the team, they flew

With a truck full of products, and Rick I, too

And then in a twinkling, I heard in the drive, the workers behave like a buzzing bee hive

As I started the scope, and was turning around, into the structure Rick I went, with a bound

He was dressed all in green from his head to his foot,

and his clothes protected with PPE from ashes, and soot

A bundle of equipment, he had gathered from the truck,

He emerged determined to clean up this muck

His eyes, how they twinkled, through those protective goggles

His cheeks were rosy from the mask, protecting his tonsils

His branded attire was crisp to the look,

He and his team regained control, in which the fire had took

The test sponge he held tight in his hand, for the smoke in every crevasse, was crammed

He and the team worked fast and steady, to make sure the customer and business were ready

Their level of attention to detail was surprising in itself, they cleaned and wiped every book on the shelf

With a wink of his eye and a twist of his head, he gave the customer a sense that there was nothing to dread

He spoke not a word but went straight to work, he filled all the forms and he said, with a smook

"Get it all uploaded, quick and fast, we don't want audit to look at this last"

He sprang to the truck to give his team a signal, and away they all flew, to the orange house at old Seminole,

But I heard him exclaim, as the COI was gladdened: Don't forget, we make it "Like it never even happened."

Happy Holidays everyone! We're here to help in case of an emergency 24/7/365 at 904 429-4457

SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine "Adopts A Family" this holiday season

12/20/2020 (Permalink)

Christmas tree with "adopted" families gifts under it We were so happy to be here to help this holiday season. Happy Holidays from our SERVPRO family, to yours.

There is no better holiday tradition than spreading holiday cheer and helping out those who are less fortunate. 2020 has been a challenging year for most, with the pandemic, and it leading to unprecedented job loss, and a overall disruption of daily life, spreading holiday cheer seems even more needed this year. 

This holiday season, we at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/ St. Augustine beach wanted to give back to our local community. We reached out to Betty Griffin Center, a local women's domestic violence and sexual assult shelter to see how we could give back. We took part in their "Adopt-A-Family" program. We were given a holiday "wish list" that included the age, gender, sizes, hobbies and 3 gift requests for each family member. 

We "adopted" a family of 6 and had so much fun shopping for the items on the wish list, it definitely got us in the holiday spirt!

If you would like to donate, Betty Griffin Center offers a variety of donation opportunities, for more information check out their website and Wish List or their Thrift Shoppes and see how you can help them reach more people in our community. 

Betty Griffin Center's mission is to offer protection and quality services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assult and their families in St. Johns County. They operate a shelter that offers assistance, counseling and transitional support to them women and their families.

On Tuesday, May 19th, 2020, SERVPRO of South Fleming Island/North Bradford county, had an opportunity to demonstrate our appreciation for the dedication and commitment to the community of the Green Cove Springs Police Department.

SERVPRO advertising deep cleanings SERVPRO of Greater St Augustine / St Augustine Beach is here to help 24/7/365. Call us at (904) 429-4457!

SERVPRO of Greater St Augustine / St Augustine Beach  is here to help keep our community safe with deep cleanings and disinfectant services.

We follow guidelines in accordance with CDC recommendations. The CDC recommends use of a labeled hospital-grade disinfectant. The difference between household and hospital-grade disinfectants contain a kill claim for Pseudomas Aeruginosa. Pseudomas Aeruginosa is a encapsulated bacterium that can cause disease in humans, animals and even plants. Pseudomas Aeruginosa is a pathogen associated with serious illness because of its advanced antibiotic resistance mechanisms. The EPA has yet to approve a disinfectant that directly kills SARS-CoV-2, more commonly known as covid-19. Without a product with direct kill claims to be approved by the EPA, the EPA along with the CDC have issued a list of products that, based on the products' efficiency against non-enveloped viruses that are actually “harder to kill” than an enveloped virus; such as covid-19. We currently have 5 products on the list, #100 SERVPROxide, #172 Benefect Devon-30, #127N Concrobium Disinfectant 2, #175 Vanquish and #154F Sporicidin

St. Augustine's Spill on History....

6/25/2019 (Permalink)

St. Augustine Wells Fargo!!!

Did you know that St. Augustine is rich in Black History?  From churches to restaurant to banks, St. Augustine was a prime location for the history of the different movements that occurred within the Untied States.

Wells Fargo off Kings Street is an example of the St. Augustine history that changed many homes and lives throughout the United States.

At Wells Fargo off Kings Street, the branch continues to display their rich history to the public. It all started July 1963, where there were four College Students who choose to sit-in at, what was know as the Woolworth Department Store.

Why Woolworth? it was a popular location that African American teenagers sat-in springing from North Carolina. They would sit at the lunch counter and refuse to move.  The St. Augustine movement was led by Dr. Robert Hayling.  The teenagers would have gone free if they would have given up Dr. Haylin, the organizer of the sit-in, to the police after they were arrested. However out of hundreds of college students and youth that also participated, these four teenagers refused to write a statement turning over Dr. Haylin.  Therefore, the judge sentenced them to one year of retention school which was jail to help reform the students since they refused to stop protesting.

The teens were released early due to changes made by the Governor Farris Bryant.  This group of four are referred to as the “little warriors” by Dr. King, and as the “St. Augustine Four” by local residence. The students were JoeAnn Anderson Ulmer, Samuel White, Audrey Nell Edwards, and Willie Carl Singleton.

At SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach, we preserve history. If your company or homes gets flooded, call SERVPRO at 904-429-4457, and we will help save your history.

Emergency READY Program

During the 2018 Hurricane season, SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach is dedicated to assisting our community in preparing for a possible catastrophe.  We want to ensure that potential disruption to life is minimized.  Therefore, we are working to inform our community about the SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile. 

Preparation is a key component for making it through any size disaster, whether it’s a small water leak, a large fire or an area flood.  The best time for planning for such events is not when the event happens, but well before it happens.  No one ever plans on the disaster, but you can plan for it.  Now is the time to ask yourself, “Are you ready for whatever could happen?”

The SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile is a start up approach that provides the critical information needed to begin mitigation and recovery services.  It is designed to serve as a quick reference of important building and contact information.  By preparing an ERP you will receive the benefit of over 40 years of experience in reducing the impact of any natural or man-made disaster.  SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach is dedicated to being faster in response to water and fire damage claims.  One of our main goals is to quickly get your property back in working order.  Call us today at 904-429-4457 to meet with one of our experts, who will gladly meet with you to begin your Emergency READY Profile.

A community cleaning event helps bring locals closer together, bridging the gap between generations and neighbors alike. It’s also a healthy way to get out in the elements, be part of a team, and do something positive.

SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach is committed to keeping their community clean, whether it’s helping with community clean up events or through their restoration and cleanup services.

Ford Ranger truck on the tow truck, while on the north-bound ramp of 95 and State Road 16. #SERVPRO

It was a Friday, as our manager and crew chief were coming back from a fire and smoke damage restoration job a few exits down on 95 and turning onto State Road 16 something caught their eyes that was surreal. A vehicle hydroplaned and rolled over into a ditch full of water. It happened so fast, many passing by cars did not stop...They pulled over, our crew chief crossed four lanes of traffic, while the manager dialed 911. Long story short the driver was pulled out of the vehicle, while they both made the next appointment on time!!! 

Here at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach we believe in giving back to the community in more ways than one. We try to be vigilant, we always operate with safety in mind, and we are always there to help! 904-429-4457.
