- Kitchen/Food Areas
- Retail Spaces
- Water Fountains
- Sales Counters
- Carpets and Rugs
- Stair Handrails
- Elevator Cars
- Playground Equipment
- Fitness Equipment
The CDC recommends usage of a labeled hospital-grade disinfectant with claims against similar pathogens to the coronavirus. Multiple products in the SERVPRO product line carry the EPA-approved emerging pathogens claims. While there is currently no product tested against this particular strain of the coronavirus, we are following all guidelines as provided by the CDC and local authorities.

Emergency Readiness Profile
Independence Community College has a logo which is a pirate.
One of our customers, a Junior College, was in a documentary on NETFLIX for 2 years. The college is Independence Community College in Independence, KS.
Just 45 minutes away from SERVPRO of Bartlesville/Miami, they took advantage of an ERP which is a no cost program that provides a concise Profile Document that contains only the critical information needed in the event of an emergency.
This Emergency Readiness Profile was created with the help of staff at ICC who took pictures of all seven of their buildings. It gave the facility details such as shut-off valve locations, priority areas and priority contact information.
We at SERVPRO of Bartlesville/Miami wish the ICC Pirates a great season and will continue to support the school in any way that we can.
How to Prevent Mold Growth
We breathe in mold spores and fragments every day, indoors and outdoors. Usually these exposures do not present a health risk. However, people can be exposed to large amounts of mold, particularly indoors.
It is impossible to get rid of all mold spores indoors; some spores will be found floating through the air and in house dust. However we can reduce the amount of spores in our homes by controlling mold growth.
- Identify moisture problem areas in your home and correct them
- Dry wet areas immediately
- Prevent moisture buildup with proper ventilation
- Monitor humidity indoors
- Direct rainwater away from your home
- Clean and repair roof gutters
Remember if you clean up the mold but don't address the water or moisture problem, then most likely, the mold problem will come back.
SERVPRO of Bartlesville/Miami offers indoor air quality sampling for mold. Call us today for an appointment at 918-766-0220.

How to Stay Safe in a Severe Storm
Where you and your family shelter during a storm is a crucial factor in staying safe. Ideally your home already has at least one location to shelter at, so it's time to focus on safeguarding your family while it's in full force. The safest place to be is indoors but if you are outdoors during a severe storm, AVOID exterior walls and get to shelter as soon as it is safe to do so.
Other simple things you can do in a storm situation are:
- Stay clear of windows, doors and openings such as fireplaces.
- Take shelter in your designated room, a bathroom or basement is recommended and protect your head with a cushion or mattress. If possible, crouch beneath heavy furniture.
- Continue to tune in to local weather broadcasts for updates and advice.
