Community First

Meeting Our Neighbors

SERVPRO of Upper Bucks has spent almost 20 years in business in their local community. 20 years is a long time to spend within a community, yet we've realized we've neglected the importance of actually taking the time to meet our neighbors and local businesses.

We've recently begun to refocus our attention on what matters most, our community.

First Responders

Who better to meet than those who put their lives on the line for our protection? SERVPRO of Upper Bucks supports their first responders through participation and support of their events such as; 5K runs/walks, Police Chiefs' meetings and fire department open houses. We also donate cases of water to our first responders for use during their emergency situations.

Community Events

There is no community event (or building emergency) too big or too small for SERVPRO of Upper Bucks. We are constantly welcoming the opportunity to sponsor and participate in local events. Recently, we have provided our support through volunteerism and donations at several fall festivals, inaugural concerts, Fire Department open-houses and breakfasts, Chamber of Commerce events as well as career-oriented school-sponsored programs.

Our Doors Are Always Open

We are hoping to continue to grow in our community by meeting all of our neighbors at community events and much more! We welcome the opportunity to meet with community members, business leaders, Chamber(s) of Commerce members, Police, Firemen or any one of our neighbors wishing to stop by and learn more about our business!

Give us a call or stop by the office at any time!

If you'd like to see some of the events we've recently participated in, visit our website under the community events section!

We look forward to meeting you, neighbor!

Clean Homes Sell Faster!

10/22/2020 (Permalink)

It is common knowledge that cleaner homes sell faster than ones that look like they need a good scrubbing. Potential buyers would probably prefer to purchase a cleaner house, especially if they'd like to move in sooner rather than later.

But, it is not common that all homes are maintained at the highest of standards; there could be years worth of dust, mold, and other contaminants around the home that could have never been cleaned by the homeowner. 

While keeping a cleaner home could increase its market value — and could reduce your list-to-sale conversion times — you should try to maintain a cleaner home for your health.

SERVPRO can assist you with all of your home cleaning needs; we have a variety of services that could help your home become anew!

- Carpet, Upholstery, Drapery, and Blind Cleaning

- Ceiling, Wall, and Hard Floor Cleaning

- Deodorization

- Duct and HVAC Cleaning

- Mold Mitigation and Remediation

If you need any of the above services, call us today!

Thunderstorm Facts: Heavy Storms!

10/21/2020 (Permalink)

Is it safe to assume that at some point in our lives, we all looked up to the sky and watched the clouds? Has anyone ever pondered how much these giant, cotton-like objects actually weigh? Dennis Mersereau, from Mentalfloss.com, shines some light on this question.

“Water is heavy,” Mersereau says, “We look at clouds floating effortlessly through the sky and don’t think about the sheer amount of weight hanging above our heads.”

Downpours are truly a sight to see when they occur, but to think that what is hitting the roof of our vehicles or on top of our umbrellas could be coming down with much more force is straight-up mind boggling.

“One cumulus cloud can weigh more than 1 million pounds. When it comes to a billowing thunderstorm, though, the weigh can go up tremendously depending on how much rain it’s holding,” Mersereau continues, “we’re lucky the rain doesn’t all fall at once.”

Thunderstorm Facts: What Are Updrafts?

10/21/2020 (Permalink)

According to Dennis Mersereau, from Mentalfloss.com, he defines the various stages and occurrences that go on during the course of a very strong thunderstorm, or during a stronger storm in general.

“Thunderstorms can inspire the entire range of human emotion with their vivid displays of nature’s fury,” Mersereau says, “they [storms] are used to set an ominous tone in spooky stories, even as they bring much-needed relief to parched fields or distressed humans on a hot day.”

Mersereau mentions updrafts as one of the key components to start up a storm, which are columns of warm air that quickly rise through the atmosphere, often packing a punch! It is worth noting that the size and force of an updraft is dependent upon the temperatures in the atmosphere, but they can easily exceed 100mph during strong storms.

Sewer Water Categories: A Breakdown!

10/19/2020 (Permalink)

There are three types, or “categories”, of contaminated water: clean water, gray water, and black water. We will provide a brief description of each, below:

Category 1 – Clear Water: this water is from a clean source like a broken water supply line or leaking faucet. If not treated quickly, this water can turn into category 2 or 3, depending on length of time, temperature, and contact with surrounding contaminants.

Category 2 – Gray Water: this water is contaminated and could cause discomfort or illness. Examples include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

Category 3 – Black Water: this water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and any contact should be avoided. Examples include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

Call your local SERVPRO if you see ANY of these types of water in your property — let us do our job so you can focus on yours!
