Complimentary First Responder Emergency Vehicle Professional Disinfecting Stations 

This past Thursday, April 23, 2020, SERVPRO of Toms River sanitized 175 emergency First Responder Vehicles at the Ocean County Mall. We had fire trucks, ambulances, police and sheriff cars, undercover cars, security and corrections vehicles from as far as Barnegat and Ocean Township to as close as the Toms River Police Department right around the corner.

We offered free towel surface wipe down and Microbial Misting throughout the vehicles at one of our four disinfecting stations in front of Macy's and JCPenney. 

Special thanks to Air Duct Cleaning Solutions for bringing their crew to help out with this fantastic event. Also, thanks to Blue Wave Printing for distributing hand sanitizer to be kept in the emergency vehicles. 

Thank you to everyone who is working hard to keep us all safe during this unique time in our lives.

Hoarding Cleanup and Remediation for Your New Jersey Home 

Hoarding disorder is a psychiatric condition that produces symptoms such as the compulsive urge to acquire unusually large amounts of possessions and the inability to voluntarily part with those possessions. According to PsychCentral, compulsive hoarding affects approximately 700,000 to 1.4 people in the U.S.

People with this disorder may accumulate possessions that include locations in their homes, yards, vehicles, offices or work settings which can lead to complications that can be dangerous to clean up on your own. According to The Mayo Clinic, some hazards and complications may include:

  • Unsanitary conditions that pose a risk to health

  • Mold

  • Increased risk of falls

  • Injury or being trapped by shifting or falling items

  • Biohazards

  • A fire hazard

  • An inability to perform daily tasks, such as bathing or cooking

  • Poor work performance

  • Family conflicts

  • Loneliness and social isolation

  • Financial problems

  • Legal issues, including eviction
