Helpful Hand Washing Tips & Reminders
Hand washing helps prevent the unnecessary spread of germs
With the COVID-19 pandemic being at the front of most of our minds, SERVPRO of Western Lancaster thought this would be a good time for hand washing tips and reminders! The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a 5-step hand washing protocol:
Turn on the tap and wet your hands with warm or cold water.
With the tap running, apply soap and lather by rubbing your hands together. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your fingernails.
Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. An easy way to time this is by singing “Happy Birthday” twice.
Rinse your hands under clean, running water. We recommend facing your fingers toward the bottom of the sink. Leave water running.
Dry your hands by using a clean towel. Use the towel to turn the tap off when done.
When to Wash Your Hands:
- Before, during, and after preparing food
- Before and after eating food
- Before and after caring for someone who is sick
- Before and after treating a cut or wound
- After going to the grocery store
- After using the bathroom
- After pumping gas
- After sneezing, coughing, or blowing your nose
- After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste
- After touching garbage
- When your hands are visibly dirty
Helpful Tip: In most cases, if soap and water are not available, you can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. If your hands are visibly dirty please use soap and water.

This September: Pledge to Prepare
September is National Preparedness Month Logo
As National Preparedness Day approaches, we are pleased to announce that SERVPRO of East York is joining the Ready Campaign, founded to increase preparedness throughout all communities in the U.S., and taking an active role in helping York County prepare for emergencies.
It means households have an emergency supply kit so they can be self-reliant for at least three days in case of emergency and having a plan for how they will respond and reconnect after an emergency. For information on creating a supply kit and writing a plan, see the Family Emergency Plan template and Emergency Supply Kit checklist. For additional, free resources and information on how you can become prepared, visit Ready.gov.
As you pack away an extra case of water, a few more cans of soup, some spare batteries, and check the date on the fire extinguishers within your home, just remember how important those few actions may be for you and your family in the event of a disaster.

5 Home Renovations You Shouldn't Do Yourself (And Ones You Can Tackle Instead)
With the new year comes resolutions for both yourself and your home. But before you tackle that big interior overhaul... don't.
Last month, real estate site Zillow Digs polled homeowners who had completed a DIY home renovation within the last three years to find out how they feel about their projects in the aftermath. The results were not so promising: More than 40 percent of homeowners said they regretted undertaking large DIY renovations such as refinishing cabinetry or expanding a room, as projects like these went over budget at least 20 percent of the time. Survey responders had the most regret over the following projects
