Your Local SERVPRO
Now we all know that this year has been tough, and the Corona Virus has stayed much longer than first anticipated. But in order for us to return to the way of life that we once knew we need to practice being safe. There are many ways to practice this such as: practicing social distancing, always wearing your mask, and paying attention to your body. If you are ever uncertain about how you are feeling it is always good to isolate and self quarantine for 14 days.
We at SERVPRO understand that many people in the community own their own small business and are still open. This is a risk that must be taken for some, and we are here to help ensure your safety and peace of mind. If a suspected customer that comes in or an employee contracts the virus, then our specialist team will be there to sanitize and disinfect. Without fogging machines we are sure to get every inch then we go behind and hand clean all high touch and contact areas.
SERVPRO of Woodridge/Bolingbrook is here to help you feel safe and always protected 24/7, and you can always reach us at (630) 771-1720

As the Holiday seasons reaches us. Us here at SERVPRO of Woodridge/Bolingbrook, is here to give back to our community. On December 10th, our amazing crew did a whole house clean with no charge to a man who needed it. He was close to losing his home and SERVPRO came to the rescue to help this man in need. With a crew of 6 and teams of two split up and took diffident sides of the home. Throwing out trash or cleaning a bathroom, SERVPRO was happy to help in any way. When the job was completed it was as if it was a new home. The customer and community was so happy of the outcome. The SERVPRO crew was proud and happy of the work they did for this person in need.

Summertime Means Grilling Time!!
Grilling safety tips
Fire in the grill, under hot dogs and burgers, is a welcome sight at the family cookout. But fire anywhere else can make your summer kick-off barbecue memorable for all the wrong reasons. To keep you and your family safe while grilling, follow these general guidelines:
General grilling tips
- Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors.
- The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
- Keep children and pets away from the grill area.
- Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.
- Never leave your grill unattended.
Before you use your grill:
- Check the major connection points between the gas (propane) tank hose and the regulator and cylinder, and where the hose connects to the burners. Tighten if loose.
- Check the gas (propane) tank hose for the potential (gas) leaks. To do that:
- Apply a light soap and water solution to the hose using a brush or spray bottle.
- Turn the propane tank on. If there is a gas leak, the propane will release bubbles around the hose (big enough to see).
- If there are no bubbles, your grill is safe to use.
- If there are bubbles, turn off the tank and check connections, then have your grill serviced by a professional before using it again.
- If the leak doesn’t stop, call the fire department immediately.
When the grill is on:
- As you are cooking, if you smell gas, turn off the gas tank and burners.
- If the leak stops immediately, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again.
- If the smell continues, move away from the grill and call the fire department immediately. Do not move the grill.
- There are several ways to get the charcoal ready to use. Charcoal chimney starters allow you to start the charcoal using newspaper as a fuel.
- If you use a starter fluid, use only charcoal starter fluid. Never add charcoal fluid or any other flammable liquids to the fire.
- Keep charcoal fluid out of the reach of children and away from heat sources.
- There are also electric charcoal starters, which do not use fire. Be sure to use an extension cord for outdoor use.
- When you are finished grilling, let the coals completely cool before disposing in a metal container.
