Community Summer Safety Tips To Be Aware Of Here At The Beach The beach can be fun AND dangerous, be responsible and stay safe!

Everyone loves going to the beach during the summer, the water is warm the weather is amazing the sun feels great ... but danger could be just a few steps away!

We here at SERVPRO of Georgetown, East and West Horry Counties know all about Summer Beach Fun, we live here! So we decided to help out the tourist and new locals with a few great summer beach tips to be aware of this year!

We first wrote about summer safety about four years ago but did not really mention the beach so here are a few tips to keep you safe while you are out on the sand having fun:

  • Look for and understand the warning flags.
  • Check the weather forecast, (it rains every day here during the summer)
  • Learn or know how to swim in an ocean.
  • Learn about rip currents.
  • Pick a spot close to a lifeguard tower.
  • Use sunscreen!

These are just a few safety tips you should learn and be aware of down here at the beach. Be smart and you will enjoy your visit to the beach much more!

Earth Day Activities That Can Help Our Planet!

To help celebrate Earth Day which is on Saturday, April 22 this year, we are giving you some Earth Day activities that can help you make a positive impact in your community and our planet.

All across the world, people are giving back and doing their part to help the planet. Whether you’re looking for Earth Day activities for work or just some easy Earth Day activities for people who care about the planet, these activity ideas will inspire you to do your part to give back to the planet.

  1. Think about your personal impact on the planet. List your energy use and come up with ways you can reduce it.
  2. Volunteer with an organization that is doing something. Giving your most precious resource (TIME) to help an organization treat the planet better is a great way to help on EARTH DAY.
  3. Plant something. Whether its a tree, a bush, or even a full out garden, get those hands dirty!
  4. Recycle your items. This along with everything else in this article can and should be done every day.

The planet is in dire need of like-minded people who want to put it first for a  change. This is just a small list of what you can do to help, but you have to start somewhere!

Community Providing Fire Damage Repair For Our Chili Cook-off SERVPRO doing damage control with these chili's!

It is a good thing that SERVPRO knows how to handle fire damage repair.

That is because some of the chili's that were entered into this year's 1st Annual Chili Cook-off were blazing hot!

On January 19th our two franchises SERVPRO of East Horry County and SERVPRO of West Horry and Georgetown Counties decided to have a little interoffice contest to see who's culinary skills would reign supreme!

There were 4 different entries this year with our General Manager Don Shupe ultimately taking home first prize with his award-winning recipe. We think it is safe to say that the real winners in this event were everyone that had gotten the chance to sample these amazing chili's!

If you or someone you know needs fire damage repair due to hot chili or any other fire-related damage call SERVPRO today! 843-236-6278

SERVPRO of Horry County Bowling Fun

Community SERVPRO of Horry County Bowling Fun Going on a different kind of strike at SERVPRO!

Teamwork is essential when you work as close as the employees here at SERVPRO do.

Bowling provides an amusing atmosphere in which members of your company can relax, have fun and get to know their fellow workers on a little more personal level. It provides an opportunity to discuss likes and dislikes, learn about each others families an home life as well as just unwind from the days activities.

Our franchise went bowling on Friday to have fun and reconnect the team. Every once in a while it is good to reset the company culture clock and have a good time without all the stress of having to remember you are doing a job.

Bowling was a great morale booster and was just what SERVPRO needed to start fresh and regain that team can do attitude once again.

If you need any help with fire, water or mold restoration please call the experts at SERVPRO 843-236-6278!

Myrtle Beach Restoration Company Owner Gets Recognized

Community Myrtle Beach Restoration Company Owner Gets Recognized Be nice, even when no one is looking.

It is important to continually give back when you are in a place to do so.

SERVPRO of East Horry County Owner Bill Roehl likes to stay under the radar, he likes to watch as his business and his team help those in need at some of the most disastrous times of their lives. 

Mr Bill also likes to help in the community when it has absolutely nothing to do with earning him money or giving his business any publicity, just the satisfaction of giving back to those in his community. He has pioneered such programs as FREE Entertainment in local schools with the SERVPRO Juggling Show, and the Community Outreach Program Creating Hope

So it is no surprise that a local paper spotted him paying for a group of veterans lunch at a local restaurant here on the Grand Strand and had to dig deep just to find out who he was.

We appreciate everything you do Mr Bill in making this community a better place to live and we are so proud to be working under your leadership!

We joined forces with some amazing local Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach businesses to help restock the reserves for the food bank so the people of Horry county do not go hungry this winter.

Merry Christmas to Our Family and Friends

12/16/2015 (Permalink)

Community Merry Christmas to Our Family and Friends Have a safe holiday season.

Hello friends, it is that time of the year again. A time to step back and look at another year that has gone by way to quickly! All the times that tested you and challenged you. All the times that made you proud of yourself, your team, and your company. All of those times that define who you are as an individual, family and team member.  We here at SERVPRO certainly had those moments, whether it was the freezing winter nights that caused damage or the horrible floods that came upon us way too fast we definitely were tested.

In the coming year there are so many opportunities to look forward to, and if this past year was any indication, there will be a handful of challenges as well. We know that that each of us will be working hard to meet those challenges and setting new goals for the future.

At this time of Christmas let us all be thankful for what Christmas means to each of us. For us it means the life of Christ and the gifts of salvation, eternal life and grace.

So from my family to yours have a safe holiday season and MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all!
