To bring in May in true SERVPRO fashion, SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties were delighted to host a CE Class with three different courses. Our agents and adjusters came from many different areas to join in on the learning fun! The classes offered included: Ethics, Bio-hazards, and Mitigation Awareness. The Ethics course covered a variety of subtopics like honesty and reliability. The Bio-hazards class was enjoyed by all; this class went in-depth on the different situations one may encounter dealing with commercial or residential property. The class got to view pictures and slides with information on the different bio-hazards SERVPRO can clean. The Mitigation Awareness course covered all the ways in which Mitigation strives to always be the true hero of the day! And, how SERVPRO restores, not replaces, household items and furniture that suffer water damage. We look forward to more CE Classes in the future!

This year SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties had the pleasure of attending the Southeastern Affordable Housing Management Association (SAHMA) Kentucky Conference in Louisville, IT. The SAHMA organization is comprised of owners and managers of affordable, multifamily housing in the Southeast. With a mission to inform and educate, the conference attendees had the opportunity to discuss a variety of topics important to the housing industry.  

At the vendor show our marketing team had the opportunity to speak with a few hundred Kentucky property managers about restoration services.  One of the key services discussed extensively was our biohazard cleanup.  SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties covers a broad scope of biohazard cleanings including sewage backups, crime scene residues, suicide/death accidents, homicide cleanups, hoarding scenes, animal waste/remains, chemical spills, and meth lab cleanup.  While most of these can be unpleasant scenarios to deal with, we are here to make the cleanup easier and downtime less for our commercial and residential customers.

SERVPRO® of Pulaski & Laurel Counties Making Trauma & Crime Scenes “Like it never even happened.”

We can make it “Like it never even happened.”

Crime scene cleanup can be a daunting task, which is why SERVPRO® of Pulaski & Laurel Counties has invested in the training, equipment, and products necessary to make any situation “Like it never even happened.” While you probably knew that our technicians need to be in full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) just like our mold cleanup and remediation, histoplasmosis cleanup, category 3 water damage work, and guano cleanup, did you ever wonder what has to happen to the debris?

Crime scene cleanup specialists are required to dispose of biohazard waste with a certified incineration company. All debris is bagged in specially marked bags and boxes, and contracted through specialty companies that handle biohazard waste. This portion often times represents a very large portion of the overall invoice. Utilizing a company like SERVPRO of Pulaski & Laurel Counties gives you the peace of mind that you will get a team of knowledgeable technicians, dedicated to customer service and excellence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and the understanding that all crime scene cleanup is handled according to industry standard, and that all biohazard waste is disposed of properly.

While you already knew that SERVPRO of Pulaski & Laurel Counties is your go to place for all of your fire, water, or mold cleanup and restoration needs, now you can call with confidence should the need for crime scene or biohazard cleanup arises.
