Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned - Disinfectant Cleaning for your Mesa AZ Business
Let us help you get back to business
As our communities re-open, close, and re-open around Arizona, we’re all moving back toward a new version of what’s normal. Visitors and customers for our businesses and employees who work in our businesses in Mesa AZ have new expectations of the places they work in and frequent. A recent poll taken as communities across the nation were opening up the first time showed us that of the 89% of respondents who were hesitant about returning to brick and mortar businesses, about half were specifically worried about the cleanliness and cleanliness protocols of the businesses they would be visiting. Businesses are now expected to have a higher level of awareness about the cleanliness of their businesses than before the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned initiative is a defensive cleaning program we are offering to businesses and commercial locations to assist them in addressing the current COVID-19 pandemic. This proactive viral pathogen cleaning regimen goes well beyond conventional janitorial or carpet cleaning. By choosing Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, you, your employees, your customers, and your community can rest assured that you’ve selected a higher cleaning standard – you are Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.
Extensive training and specialized products
SERVPRO is recognized as the #1 choice in cleanup and restoration* nationwide, and we stand on more than 50 years of experience and expertise to help your business become Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned. Beyond fire & water restoration services, SERVPRO professionals are trained and experienced in biohazard decontamination, chemical spills, crime scene cleanup, and vandalism cleanup – always adhering to the cleaning and decontamination standards set by the CDC and local authorities.
From formulating and creating our own proprietary cleaning products, like SERVPROXIDE, to taking the utmost care while disinfecting, we will ensure you and your business(es) are set up to promote consumer confidence as the mesa community continues to reopen.
Consult, Clean, and Certify - The 3 C’s of Cleanliness
The stakes are this high in the current economy when you are looking to reopen your business, not only for your future customers and clients but for your employees as well.

SERVPRO has developed an industry leading, proprietary training program, cleaning solutions, and remediation processes using over 50 decades of industry experience. We’ve cleaned up some of the most challenging biohazards imaginable. Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned reflects our unique experiences and capabilities. The program’s foundation is built with what we call our 3 C’s: Consult, Clean, and Certify.
- Consult – Your business is different from any other, which is why you’ll be assigned a Cleaning Protocol Consultant who will work with you to understand your business and will create a cleaning program to meet your business’ specific needs. Your program will be developed based on your business type, size of space, amount of high-frequency touchpoints, foot traffic, congestion points, and any other specific needs your business has.
- Clean – Based on your specific business’ needs, your location will undergo a thorough, deep clean, using our exclusive cleaning products, performed according to protocols set forth by SERVPRO complying with the CDC guidelines. Our employees have years of experience in this industry, and we will go beyond the scope of work that regular janitorial staff performs. We are not trying to replace them, we work in compliment with them. In the event of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 event, we will be there cleaning as quickly as we are able to ensure you get back to your business operations as quickly as possible.
- Certify - When your business has been Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, you will gain access to proprietary signage, digital emblems, and other collateral that lets your customers and employees know that you’ve selected a higher standard of cleaning to help protect them.

In more recent news
In recent news, we were recently in a meeting with some of the other local marketing agents that are also business professionals. Just in a different industry, and one of the most common concerns that the people had was how to know if their marketing was being successful or not.
Clients were using their business, in hopes that they would have a pleasant experience with the actual service their company provided. Similar to water damage, and as marketers, we work hard to try to acquire new customers and clients every day, and what we excel at is making our current customers happy as can be.
Part 1 of Why SERVPRO series
Paul and Denise Frost SERVPRO Team. Cary Schellenburg, Adam Boynton, Brian Ford, Adam Frost, Bridget Bello, Adam Bello, Kevin Frost all in a line.
Here in the marketing department, one question asked often is, “Why should we use your SERVPRO Franchise?” The fact is that there are a ton of restoration companies you can choose from, and there are other SERVPRO franchises to choose from as well. It can be a daunting task to find a company to come into your home or business to take care of your things in your home and get your life back together! We know that.
So, we have decided to create a 6 part blog post to talk about why you should use SERVPRO of North Central Mesa for your water, fire, and mold remediation, biohazard clean-up, ozone treatments, vandalism cleanup, etc.
Part 1 of the 6 part series of “Why SERVPRO.”
We consistently exceed our Customer’s expectations
We were just in a meeting with other marketing agents for different service professional businesses, and one of the most common concerns that the marketing agents had was that once the marketing was successful. Customers and clients were using their business that they would have a pleasant experience with the actual service their company provided. Like water damage, and as marketers, we work hard to acquire new customers and clients. It's disheartening to see business not return after the first use because of a bad experience with the service provided. I have certainly been in that place with other companies, so I understand!
Our Owner and Service technicians are fantastic!
Luckily I haven’t had to worry about that at all since coming here. Paul Frost, the franchise owner, is one of the most honest people I have met, he routinely goes out of his way to help people both in the course of his business and in his personal life. Levi Frost and Adam Bello, our Lead technicians, get nothing but praise from the jobs they go on. We generally get follow-up reconstruction jobs from the mitigation jobs they are on because our clients are so impressed with their work. They are professional and meticulous, and they are both IICRC Certified! Bridget Bello, our Packout Manager, has a spitfire personality with a genuine heart and loves people. When dealing with pack-out issues, these are unique and important characteristics to have. Pack-outs often involve dealing with sensitive and personal items, and our textile director is very sensitive to that. During the pack-out, content cleaning, and content storage process, they make sure that all items are handled with care. They also personally invest themselves with our clients to make sure their needs are taken care of.
Our Office Staff
Our office staff is pretty good too! Denise Frost handles the finances with a fine-tooth comb, and Cary Schellenberg, Denise’s sister, handles all of the paper/computer work (and there’s a TON of it…) and helps manage the job loads to make sure the company is running efficiently. While running effectively, Cary's job is vital because it allows us to offer our top of the line services at very competitive prices. Denise is also the “Mother” of the business. (Quite literally, This is a family run a local franchise, and Paul & Denise started it all). Denise and Cary help keep us grounded when things get all crazy, especially around monsoon season.
Our Reconstruction Dept.
Adam Boynton is the manager over reconstruction. Our biggest joke running in the office is that he never has anything to do. The opposite is the reality. Between the reconstruction jobs, we get from Levi and Adam’s work, Paul’s background (over 30 years in the construction industry) and reputation. Referrals from all of the insurance agents and property managers who love us, and the online leads that come in from the excellent marketing department, we keep Adam busy and growing more gray hairs! He is an expert at managing all of the work, along with all of the subcontractors we use to get our job done.
The Marketing Department
Now, this may seem a little self-serving, but our marketing department is pretty good too! Kevin Frost is the Marketing Manager, and Brian Ford is his marketing partner in crime. We love to be in front of people representing our business because we love and trust the people we are representing! We also spend a lot of time doing nerdy stuff behind computer screens. Brian and Kevin (yes,... we’re going 3rd person on ya…) are both Google Trusted Street View Photographers (We’ll talk more about that in another post in the series… stay tuned). We have the task of marketing our services, which usually involves misfortune on the part of our future clients. Talk about awkward… Kevin also spends time working as a volunteer for the local American Red Cross while Brian spends a lot of his off-duty hours trying to make sure his kids don’t terrorize the neighborhood.
There are a lot of ways that we could have started this “Why SERVPRO” series. We could have started out talking about all of the technology we use to make sure jobs are done right and efficiently; we could have talked about the Parent company and other supporting franchises around us, we could have talked about the hours and hours of education we go through to stay on top of the latest trends and industry innovations instead when it comes down to it, we think that the people who work here is what makes us successful. We have a 4.7-star rating on Google, 5-Star Rating on Facebook, and a 5-Star Rating in Yelp! And it’s because of our people!
Commercial Water Loss Mesa Arizona
Commercial Water Loss in Mesa Arizona
We recently got a call from a furniture business in Mesa AZ when a sprinkler line in the ceiling of the building broke. We were on the scene within 30 minutes of the call and were baffled when over 2 hours later water was still coming out of the damaged line. When the fire department came out to assist with the initial response, the emergency water shutoff valve was not completely shut off. This caused several thousand more gallons of water to enter the building causing more damage and requiring a lot more extraction time.
Water damage can strike your Mesa commercial establishments at any time and this only means lost revenue and disruption of business leading to lost customers.

Often the fire department will respond to a water leak situation but in the hurry, they may not shut the sprinklers off completely. This could mean water damage from leaking sprinklers. As little as a drop per minute could cause immense damage to property. It all depends on where that one drop is landing and even so the humidity of an entire office block could change because of a small pool of water leading to poor indoor air, mold and mildew growth.

James Mohler (5 Star Review in Google)
These guys do a great job at fire, flood, and biohazard cleanup as well as mold and asbestos removal!!! I would give them 10 stars if the option was available!!
Alex Smith (5 Star Review in Google)
These guys are great! I had a pipe burst in our office bathroom upstairs that flooded the whole office. Levi and Adam showed up and went to work and had all of the water extracted pretty quickly so we were at least able to get back to work. Over the next couple of days, they worked around our schedule to get rid of all of the damaged flooring and drywall.
They made sure we knew exactly what was going on the whole time. We have had issues in the past where we have used other restoration companies and we didn't know what was going on from day to day. Adam B worked on the office reconstruction and we had the same great communications. There were some hiccups along the way, but nothing that could have been expected and they took care of everything. The finished product was fantastic.
cie taylor (5 Star Review in Google)
Kevin & Paul are a delight to work with. The service is impeccable as well as the job they do: Very impressive work. Customer relationships are fostered and it shows in the way the team deals with people. They LISTEN to any and all concerns. Best of the Best!

Allen Smith (5 Star Review in Google)
Right after a company Christmas party, the Fire sprinkler system on the 3rd floor of our building had burst. We called out SERVPRO and they were at the property within an hour or two and got everything situated.
Are you prepared in case of a home fire?
American Red Cross and the volunteers are here to help, along with the team that is "faster to any size disaster." SERVPRO of North Central Mesa.
In case of a fire, are you ready?
Everyone needs to be prepared, no matter how old or young you are. Being prepared can save your life.
In October of 2018, the American Red Cross hosted a Fire alarm install walk. We walked with friends and family to install Fire alarms for the community.
At the start of a fire, the American Red Cross suggests the following steps of action:
- Remember to GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL 9-1-1 or your local emergency phone number.
- Yell "Fire!" several times and go outside right away. If you live in a building with elevators, use the stairs. Leave all your things where they are and save yourself.
- If closed doors or handles are warm or smoke blocks your primary escape route, use your second way out. Never open doors that are warm to the touch.
- If you must escape through smoke, get low and go under the smoke to your exit — close doors behind you.
- If smoke, heat, or flames block your exit routes, stay in the room with doors closed. Place a wet towel under the door and call the fire department or 9-1-1. Open a window and wave a brightly colored cloth or flashlight to signal for help.
- Once you are outside, go to your meeting place and then send one person to call the fire department. If you cannot get to your meeting place, follow your family emergency communication plan.
Luckily you have local SERVPRO franchises in your area. We come to you to help whenever you find yourself in a disaster. Things can go MUCH smoother if you are prepared and act fast when a disaster strikes.
After calling emergency response (911 & the Fire Department) have been called. Call us as soon as possible 24 hours a day/7days a week at (480) 553-7103, and we will have someone on the scene within 4 hours. With a quick reaction time, it will give the 1st responders a chance to do their job and still allows for a quick assessment of the situation to best help with your specific situation.
Preparing ahead of time is always the best bet. Using the Emergency Ready Plan App developed by SERVPRO in partnership with the American Red Cross is a great way to be prepared. It is a free app available on all mobile devices. If you have any questions about setting it up, please feel free to give us a call at (480) 553-7103.

So, you could imagine how much help they could use from around the world. Anything and everything could be helpful at this point for the American Red Cross. From blood, money, even just some of your time on the weekends.

Staying safe in Storm damage here in Mesa Arizona.
SERVPRO is here to help even when you can see a storm in the distance, and you know it's headed your way.
Personal protective equipment or PPE is essential with our line of work. Disaster sites are naturally a breeding ground of health and safety concerns. Injuries are also prevalent; that’s why we take specific steps to protect ourselves from these dangers. The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that 70 percent of workers who injure their hands were not wearing work glove during an accident. Most of the complaints about wearing gloves are that they are not comfortable and or a lack of skill or mobility. It’s close to 30 percent of workers today, even in disaster workers are wearing gloves not adequate for the type of hazard or just damaged/used gloves, according to the BLS.
SERVPRO of North Central Mesa number concern is Safety. And that goes across the board for SERVPRO Locations in general. Fortunately, with modern day’s technology advances, we have extra protection, durability, and comfortable gloves.
Here are three ways to effectively prevent and avoid hand injuries on a job site.
- Evaluate injury risks at the begging of a job. Look for severe possibilities like sharp objects, slip zones, and hazards material. You can always consult with a safety specialist, safety engineer, or product manager to help evaluate the possible risk and risk factors that could very easily lead to hand and finger injuries on a job.
- Teaching and Train your employees the proper ways to behave on a job site. You could always do role-playing or simulate a hand injury. Tape up workers dominant hand with gauze and instruct them to perform a couple of simple work tasks and personal task like texting. This type of training shows how to concern they need to be when evaluating their risks while working.
- Finally, the best way to prevent hand injuries would be to give workers and technicians the best possible performance gloves. By outfitting our employees with the best equipment, not only do you show your customers you are taking care of your employees, but your employees know that they are being taken care of.
Here at SERVPRO, safety is a top priority for us. If you need any restoration services after a rainstorm, give SERVPRO of North Central Mesa a call and have us safely and effectively take care of your water loss in Mesa Arizona. (480) 553-7103.
2019 Slow start to the Monsoon season
Lightning striking all around in the Mesa, Arizona area. You can tell by the cactus that it's a local area.
Monsoons are here at the East Valley in Arizona!
As most of you know Monsoon Season is here. Monsoon storms can be devastating, although as of late here in Mesa it has been quiet.
If you own or rent a house that is vacant right now, it would be wise to check on that property as soon as you can after a storm event or monsoon season. Within just a couple of days, if rainwater goes unchecked, it can lead to mold growth and potential mold damage. Right now, we are working on two mobile homes that were caught in the recent rain storms last month. They weren’t checked on within a couple of weeks and Mold started in the walls and baseboards.
If left unchecked, the damage in your home could go from a couple of hundred dollars to multiple thousands of damages to your property, just within a couple of days. That’s what has now happened to these Mobile homes.
