TWIN FALLS — Servpro, a cleaning company in Twin Falls, is hoping to help first responders get through the current pandemic by providing free cleaning services to their vehicles. The company specializes in bio-hazard clean ups and knew it had to utilize their services to disinfect the vehicles and help keep first responders safe.

“We are doing the work that needs to be done to help keep our communities up and running. So if you have a business that has a person that has tested positive for COVID-19, well it’s unsafe for people to keep going in there until it’s clean and disinfected.” Luke Balbas, owner of Servpro Twin Falls, said.

The company has already worked with the Blaine County Sheriff's Department and has reached out to first responders in Sun Valley, Hailey and Twin Falls. They are also continuing to reach out to different organizations to off their services free of charge.

“You know the work that we’re doing while it’s dangerous it’s necessary. And again, you are either part of the solution or part of the problem and as a company and as people we decided we are going to be part of the solution.” Balbas said.

Servpro also recently partnered with Jimmy Johns restaurant to give out 1,200 free lunches to health care workers at St. Luke's hospital in Twin Falls. They have also worked with local food banks to help deliver donations to families in quarantine who are COVID-19 positive.

“So we just wanted to help that restaurant and that healthcare organization and say thank you from some of the people who know how hard your job is and we want to be able to give you some encouragement through this pandemic that we are all going through.” Amber Balbas, owner of Servpro Twin Falls, said.
