SERVPRO of Olathe is Green!
As the Earth continues to warm, it becomes ever more important to switch to Green technology in the workplace. It is essential to find ways to coexist with our planet, to ensure the future for the next generations. It can sometimes take creativity and initiative to become a green company. Fortunately, SERVPRO is stock-full of both qualities.
Reduce, reuse, recycle is something many people grew up hearing and that is no different for us at SERVPRO of Olathe. “One of the basic tenets of what we do is to restore versus replace." If we reduce the amount of waste hitting the landfill, and restore damaged items, we can lower the demand for that item, and therefore reduce production as well. "By virtue of what we do, SERVPRO is one of the greenest companies that are out there."
Furthermore, SERVPRO doesn’t merely claim to be green because of one policy. We go out of our way to use green technologies when we’re on the job. Whenever we find an opportunity to replace one method of restoration with something greener, we are one of the first to try it. Our use of emerging green technology is one of the things that puts SERVPRO at the front of the green movement in the Cleanup and Restoration industry. We can use advanced technology to precisely locate the damage on the property, so we can address the problem swiftly. Being able to restore the damage quickly lessens the likelihood of needing new materials.
Consider thermal imaging cameras. We can use them "...to determine moisture mapping throughout a building." Doing so allows us to quickly address all of the moisture as quickly as we can, reducing the possibility of replacing entire sheets of drywall. We can also use drones to inspect the building in question and look for problems on the roof where it may be hard for us to see from the ground. Using advanced technology helps us cut down on time. When it comes to SERVPRO, we’re always “early adopters” of new technology that can help us become a little greener.
We always focus on saving materials like tile flooring, siding, carpeting, and drywall, which would otherwise be "torn out and disposed of.” However, we also focus on using green cleaning agents. Our cleaning products and biocides are both plant-based and organic in nature. We always try to use “...EPA-registered disinfectants that are plant-based” when addressing a mess. Here at SERVPRO, we believe in going the extra mile “to keep [a] green theme.”
