Never Stop Learning
SERVPRO continuing education class in Green Bay on March 13th.
As the old saying goes, ‘You learn something new every day.’ Here at SERVPRO of West Brown County we want to help you learn those new things when we can.
To do that we periodically offer free continuing education classes to our community partners. The topics of these classes can run the gamut from biohazards, to hoarding, to ethics.
Our most recent class was held on March 13th at The Marq in Green Bay. More than 50 people attended including insurance agents, property managers and realtors.
You can see a photo of the turnout right in this post.
SERVPRO taught two classes: one on ethics and one on restoration after mold.
Our friends at CRDN, the Certified Restoration Dry Cleaning Network, also taught a class. We can’t forget that ERS provided breakfast and Sherwin Williams provided lunch to all those who attended (a day of learning certainly works up an appetite!).
These classes are particularly important to those insurance agents. They need several continuing education credits each year to keep their licenses. That way clients can be sure they’re in good hands.
Property managers and realtors aren’t required to get these kinds of credits, but many want to take part anyway. They can learn more about providing tenants and clients clean and comfortable places to live.
So why do we at SERVPRO offer this education? We do this because we care about the community and we care about our partnerships here. We want to be sure we’re here for our partners AND our future customers.
We know any time you need us will be difficult. These classes help ensure you’re taken care of should that time ever come.
To learn more about what we have to offer at SERVPRO of West Brown County, give us a call at 920-434-822-4.
SERVPRO Serves Communities
SERVPRO of West Brown County is happy to serve our communities in time of need.
As new owners of SERVPRO of West Brown County 5 years ago, my wife and I were surprised at the emotional connection our employees would form with various customers in what is usually a high time of need and trouble in their lives. It is the human element that is so very important at these times. Whether it is flooding, sewage backup, mold, fire, smoke or biohazard cleanup, each client is facing an uncommon disaster to them that is typically affecting their home or business in a very negative way. We get called in right after a fire that may have burned up many family possessions and memories. We get called in after a sewage backup floods the entire lower level of a finished basement with harmful bacteria on the structure and possessions. We get called in after a death in the family where the family is experiencing tremendous sorrow and grief.
It is our job to comfort our customers with kindness, understanding, and professionalism. It is our duty to take control of the disaster and put customer’s minds at ease knowing we have the knowledge and experience to pick up the pieces and put things back together. It is our opportunity to serve those around us in our communities. It is a pretty amazing business that we can help people on a daily basis.
Because we do get to do this daily in West Brown County and other communities like Green Bay, De Pere, Pulaski, Shawano, and Oconto, we are humbled and grateful our communities depend on us 24 hours a day and 365 days a year and call us in their time of need.
SERVPRO Supports The Salvation Army
Our Sales and Marketing Staff of SERVPRO of West Brown County, Bill Kupsh and Jim Knopf, joined forces with the Salvation Army to ring the bell for donations to this worthy cause.
Because volunteers give generously of their time, talent and energy on behalf of the disadvantaged, the Salvation Army is able to help thousands of Brown County families, children, individuals and seniors each year. They rely on volunteers to help every day, from serving a hot lunch Monday through Friday, to the special gift of time during the busy holiday season when they need nearly 10,000 hours of support by bell ringers alone.
Volunteers come to The Salvation Army as individuals, families or community organizations. Volunteer opportunities can be either short or long-term commitments. Much of the volunteer work is seasonal, helping with the many programs of The Salvation Army at Christmastime including toy, coat, and food distribution and bell-ringing.
Services of The Salvation Army continue year-round because they are committed to Doing the Most Good for those in need. Ongoing volunteer opportunities include working with young people at The Salvation Army Corps Community Center, helping with feeding programs for people of all ages, lending a hand in The Salvation Army’s food pantry, staffing The Salvation Army Thrift Store, assisting in the Senior Program or being an on-call driver for various needs as they arise.
The Salvation Army’s volunteer coordinator, works with groups and individuals to match their interests and needs with those of The Salvation Army. Our prayer is that volunteers experience joy and satisfaction as they continue to share their resources with others. If you are seeking a meaningful way to serve others, The Salvation Army would love to have you aboard.
Does Your Brown County Home Have A Mold Problem?
In Brown County, mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.
Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

SERVPRO Handles Large Commercial Building Flood in Green Bay
The SERVPRO large loss equipment was brought in to quickly clean up this flooded warehouse.
A water main break under the floor of a 200,000 square foot warehouse in Green Bay caused a heck of a mess as tons of sand and silt flowed with the gushing water and ended up throughout much of the building and accumulated as high as 6". SERVPRO of West Brown County came in and started removing the dirt with a skidsteer and began extracting the muddy water with our extraction equipment. We brought in reinforcements from our SERVPRO network that included labor, a whole building desiccant dryer and generator, as well as additional equipment so that the loss was cleaned up as quickly as possible. This enabled the warehouse to keep working without much lost time. Through our network, we can handle all job sizes, from residential to huge commercial losses. You can count on us at SERVPRO to keep your operations going and get your home or business back on track "Like it never even happened".
