There is an old saying that goes something like this “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” This is intended to be a blog about the new cleaning services offered by SERVPRO of Sussex County – so what exactly do I mean when I say that proverbial phrase. It means that as of March of 2020; most of us were concerned about the severity of the Covid-19 pandemic and it affected many individuals and business adversely. In fact, sadly, many have still not reached recovery and may not until late 2021 or later. Some might say that the entire world was dealing with a bunch of lemons. The proverb was originally intended to encourage optimism in the face of challenges or “lemons” and to approach them with a can-do attitude.
With many business closing and struggling; SERVPRO of Sussex County was offered a status of being an essential business so fortunately; we all kept our jobs and not only did we keep them but we added about 10 more employees to our staff by making lemonade. The obvious role all SERVPRO franchises was to immediately offer bio-hazard clean-up to those who may have been or may be affected or infected. As our efforts to fight the viral beast unfolded; we began to see a spike in our cleaning business and not just the CSC program. We saw that the CSC program was actually yielding clients who not only wanted our efforts to fight Covid-19 – but to also assist in keeping their businesses and residences pristine and sanitized on a regular basis.
I am not making light of Covid-19 – that is not my intention; and I have had family members who have suffered with the virus. My point is that when it appears that life has dealt us a bad hand and there is no easy solution – we must think outside the box and created opportunities and not wait for them to come to us.
