Why we use PPE
At SERVPRO® of Minot we take pride in being able to test for, mitigate, and clean up properties that have been invested with hazardous materials, most commonly mold.
This is why we make sure to train our staff in all safety measures to handle the problem. One of the most important measures to take is the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
The use of PPE is important for a few reasons most notably, the safety of our staff and the safety and sanitation of the property.
Making sure that our staff is trained in proper use and knowledge of PPE is a main priority. This allows them to be safe and focus on the job at end, rather than worry about exposure to possibly toxic materials. When our staff knows they are safe, they can focus on providing a superior service to our customers.
We take pride in upholding the highest quality standards of safety and this is just one of the ways in which we do it.
Did you know that businesses that apply EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) disinfectants are required to have a pesticide certification in the state of North Dakota? SERVPRO of Minot's Commercial Number is 10066709.This certification must be renewed every three years to remain active. SERVPRO of Minot follows guidelines set by the state for use and record keeping of the products we use, store and transport. When we use products that are registered we record the time, quantity and how it was applied to your home or business. We also send to the homeowner or business a letter stating these services. All documentation is kept for three years. All of us at SERVPRO of Minot feel these practices are a valuable aspect to our company. Following these guidelines is important for our ecosystem. These guidelines help us to remain conscience of our environment and help in its preservation.
