SERVPRO of Palo Alto expert technicians in PPE

At the start of the current global pandemic, lots of talk of PPE was circling around. But what is PPE? And how does SERVPRO of Palo Alto utilize PPE?

PPE stands for personal protective equipment which includes: hazmat suits, gloves, full-face or half-face respirators, and filters. Various industries (including the restoration industry) use PPE to protect their employees and clients or patients.

SERVPRO's expert technicians are accustomed to correctly using PPE on a regular basis--on jobs for mold, cat 3 or sewage, pathogens or viruses, and other dirty jobs, such as crawlspace cleanup and rat infestations.

Our team is trained on the proper donning (wearing) and doffing (removal) of PPE to prevent cross-contamination.

If your residential or commercial property requires proper cleaning and sanitation, don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of Palo Alto at (650) 800-3448. We are the trusted name in cleaning and sanitizing!

Palo Alto Elite Realtors Love SERVPRO of Palo Alto House Cleaning Results

Menlo Park Home

In today's competitive real estate marketplace, sellers need to have all balls in their court when marketing a property. As you know, presentation is everything. Recently a homeowner in Menlo Park who was extremely concerned about the cleanliness and odor of his home because he was about to list it for sale. He hired SERVPRO of Palo Alto to help address the dust, debris and odor from day to day living after 15 years, as well as the smell from their 4 cats, birds, hamsters, and even a chinchilla.

The home definitely had a strong pet odor in it in some rooms. SERVPRO of Palo Alto cleaned the house from top to bottom, including windows, window screens, pressure washed the patio, cleaned and sanitized all the cabinets inside and out and even completed the duct cleaning. To complete the process, we did a thermal fogging of the entire home with a neutralizing deodorizer.

The homeowner was more than ecstatic by the results of the cleaning and was happy to stage and put his home on the market. Weeks later the sale was pending. Clean homes sell faster. SERVPRO cleans on the deepest level and will enhance your home's true value by making you shine and helping you sell your home at the highest price possible.
