Salvaging Goods After Water Damage

4/24/2020 (Permalink)

Water in warehouse If you have water damage call the professionals at SERVPRO of Ashland / Richland.

A flooded company means much more than just sopping up water for business owners. Your commercial building in Northeast Ohio has furniture, drapery, electronics, doors, trim and other structural elements that can be greatly damaged by water. All of these things are important and represent an investment. The first inclination may be to toss everything, but some of your assets are salvageable.  The Professionals at SERVPRO of Ashland / Richland are here to help.

Dry and Sort

If a broken pipe is the culprit, you can have a little peace of mind that you don’t have to deal with the potential black water that comes with flooding. There is still the possibility that mold has begun to spread, so it is important to get everything affected by the water thoroughly dried out. Once you have completed this process, inspect and sort everything to determine what can be salvaged. Items that will likely need to be thrown out include any porous materials that can’t be dried or cleaned and fabrics that show signs of discoloration.

Clean the Damage

When faced with a flooded company, having your investments sorted will allow for a better understanding of the actual damage. Along with cleaning some things yourself, remember that dry cleaning is not just for clothes. Furniture, upholstery and draperies can likely be good as new after the services of dry cleaners. When it comes to the rest, considering the following tips to make the process easier:

Organize items based on cleaning methods, such as hand or machine washing. Use a disinfectant on furniture, walls and floors to prevent mold growth.
Wash items in the hottest water possible to remove potential contaminants. Use a professional water damage restoration service to ensure there is no interior damage to specialized items such as electronics.

A flooded company is a hassle, but it doesn’t have to result in a long-lasting impact on your business. Quick action, proper cleaning and the help of specialists can make it seem “Like it never even happened."

Commercial Carpet Cleaning Benefits

8/1/2019 (Permalink)

Stained carpets can give even the most well-maintained businesses a dirty reputation.

Many carpets are designed to camouflage dirt, especially carpet intended for commercial areas and businesses. Because these same carpets see so much traffic, they can get pretty dingy and rough-looking over time. A poorly maintained carpet can actually hurt your business, so frequent carpet cleaning is a good investment. A carpet that isn’t well cared-for will need to be replaced sooner than one that receives regular cleanings and maintenance, costing you a lot more money in the long run!

  • If you own a commercial building space, keeping your carpets in good repair can cut down on customer complaints and liability from any trips and falls.
  • Clean carpeting and flooring are part of the good image of your business: clients will be more comfortable with you, and your employees will feel more positive about their work environment. A happy worker is much more productive!
  • A clean carpet also reduces illness-causing biological contaminants such as bacteria, mold and viruses that can negatively affect your clients and work staff. This will be especially important during cold and flu season.

Having your commercial carpets cleaned regularly should be part of your business maintenance program.

Consider these points when deciding what an appropriate cleaning schedule should be:

  • Color, nap and pile, type, and density of your carpet: a higher-quality carpet will probably be able to go longer without cleaning, for example, and hold up better over time.
  • Foot traffic in your place of business: this aspect is going to change based on seasons and weather. A busy workplace is great, but it comes with its own set of challenges.
  • The type of your commercial space: if you own a business that uses heavy machinery, you will need to have a much heavier cleaning schedule.
  • The type of business you conduct: a veterinary office, daycare or restaurant is going to need more attention than an attorney’s office, for example. If you are a business related to the medical field, your needs may be very specific based on the area of medicine you are associated with.

Our team at SERVPRO of North Richland & Ashland Counties are trained experts when it comes to helping with all your commercial cleaning needs. If dingy, dirty carpets are a problem in your commercial property call us today at (419) 526-2701.

Common Causes of Fires In Commercial Buildings

7/16/2019 (Permalink)

Did you know that more than 100,000 commercial fires were reported in 2016 alone?

These fires caused great amounts of both emotional and financial stress to business owners. In addition, the hassle of dealing with insurance claims and other paperwork proved to be a daunting task for them.

But how did these fires break out in commercial buildings in the first place?

There are so many reasons why a fire may break out. Here are some of the most common reasons of commercial fires in Mansfield.

3 Most Common Causes of Commercial Fires in Mansfield

1. Arson

These are fires started deliberately by people with bad intentions. Sadly, this is one of the leading causes of commercial fires, and it has led to a lot of injuries and damages.

There are so many reasons of arson attacks, including vandalism, disgruntled employees, and the desire to collect insurance money. Install an automatic sprinkler system in your business premise to help minimize fire damage.

2. Human Error

Many commercial fires are also caused by simple human mistakes which are often not meant to be malicious. For instance, misusing equipment, failing to completely extinguish a cigarette butt, or accidentally leaving an electric coffee maker on.

To prevent such causes of fire, make sure that all your employees know how to properly operate all electrical equipment of your business and provide them with designated smoking zones. Alternatively, you can prohibit smoking at work.

3. Furnaces, Water Heaters, and Boilers

For effective functioning of many commercial buildings, these pieces of equipment must work efficiently. When they are incorrectly maintained or improperly installed, the risk of a fire breakout can be great.

Most of the time, these fire by these items are also due to human negligence. For example, when highly combustible materials are stored closely to boilers, furnaces, and water heaters. Always ensure that your business premise has a fire safety plan to help enhance safety and minimize damage in case of a fire.

Tips on Cleaning and Organizing Work spaces

4/9/2019 (Permalink)

Divide Your Work space Into Zones:

Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions. You may require a work space for your computer, a library area for your research, a storage area for supplies and a filing area for your archives. This will provide a foundation for a more efficient use of space.

Keep Only What You Need at Arm’s Length:

Boxes of pens, stacks of papers and old coffee cups need to go. Rid your desk of visual clutter by paring down the items on top to the essentials only. Supplies, paperwork and personal items should be kept in the zones you’ve established for them.

Sort Your Catch-All Drawer:

Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, like compartments for paperclips and rubber bands. Go through the drawer every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn’t being used.

Eliminate Digital Clutter:

Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter. Organize digital files and your e-mail inbox just as you would paper files – with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders. Also, keep the icons on your desktop to a bare minimum, and trade in sticky notes on your monitor of calendar reminders.

Create A Daily Paper System:

Consider creating hanging files or baskets labeled “To Read,” “To Do,” and “To File.” Establish set days for each, so that you don’t get behind or feel the overwhelming need to do everything at once.

Disinfect Regularly:

Prevent the buildup of dust, dirt, food stains and fingerprints. Wipe down your desk, phone, keyboard, and monitor once a week with disinfecting wipes.

Commercial Water Removal Equipment

Commercial Water Removal

There are many instances where water possibly floods your business. Sometimes a pipe breaks or sprinkler systems default and go off overnight causing water to spill into the building all night long. In other scenarios, severe weather possibly causes unwanted, indoor moisture.

The extraction process is a vital step in mitigating moisture damage. SERVPRO's of North Richland and Ashland counties commercial water removal technicians always use the industry's best equipment during extraction. We implement the best procedures to complete the job in a way that does not negatively affect your nightclub.

When first arriving at an emergency water situation our team ensures the work area is safe for our technicians, your employees, and customers. We fix as many hazards in the area possible. Areas that are not safe to access are blocked off, and danger signs get posted.

Then the source of the problem gets repaired so that water is no longer pouring into the building. If the issue results from faulty sprinklers or a pipe break, a plumber gets calls and fixes the problem. If rainwater enters due to a broken or exterior wall, we board up the hole in the structure so that no more moisture enters.

Next, we begin the extraction process with either a portable or truck-mounted extractor. Portable extractors get used for places that are awkward to get into or if parking a van at your business is not possible. Portable extractors weigh 40 to 90 lbs., hold 5 to 12 gallons of wastewater, and it vacuum power has 140 inches of water lift.

Truck-mounted extractors get used for severe projects that contain much water. The van that has the extractor gets parked close to an entrance to your bar, and the vacuum hose gets pulled in for extraction. Truck-mounted extractors weigh 500 to 1,100 pounds and have storage tanks that hold from 60 to over 100 gallons of waste. The vacuum lift capabilities for these extractors are more powerful and have between 185.71 to 198.98 inches of water lift.

Sometimes we complete our extraction work during hours when your nightclub is not open so that extraction does not hinder your business operations. We sometimes extract the water one small section at a time, so part of your bar stays open. For professional help removing moisture from your place of business

Be Smart and Implement These Bad-Weather Prep Tips for Safe Operations

1/23/2019 (Permalink)

If your business is in an area prone to bad weather such as excessive snowfall, icy roads, flooding or other natural disasters, you need to be smart and plan for bad weather. Not only can inclement conditions be dangerous for your employees, but it can also be devastating to your building’s structure. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to minimize damage, protect employees and keep your Mansfield, Ohio business operating as usual even in an intense snowstorm. Here are a few key steps:

Have a Plan in Place

Some winter storms have been known to last for weeks at a time, and many are so severe that they prevent individuals from driving. While you cannot ask your employees to head to the office in the middle of a blizzard, you can ask them to work from home when the roads are icy and visibility is poor. Have a business plan in place that everyone can adhere to on snow days. This plan should include who is responsible for what when out of office, how work should be submitted and how and how often data backup should be performed. 

Invest in Protection 

Your business should have storm windows, storm doors, new and working gutters, lightning rods and storm drains. You should also invest in a generator or other source of backup power so that, at the very least, your heater can continue operating in a snow storm and prevent a pipe burst.

Remove snow

Snow that is allowed to accumulate on the roof or sidewalks can be dangerous to your building, employees and customers. Hire a snow removal company to keep your roof, sidewalks and areas around your building clear. 

Watch the Weather

When a storm is in the forecast, shut the storm windows and doors, unplug appliances and electronics, back up your data and send your employees home. By planning ahead, you can prevent costly losses and unnecessary injuries. 

Make sure your business is ready for bad winter weather. With the right planning, you can continue operating in a snowstorm.

4 Tips for Keeping Mold Out of Your Rental Unit

1/23/2019 (Permalink)

Whether you rent out an apartment or a commercial space, you have to do what you can to keep the unit looking nice. Mold prevention can be hard if the space is not used for a while. Even with regular tenants, mold growth due to water damage is a real concern for building owners in Mansfield, Ohio.

Lower the Heat

If a building is going to be unoccupied for a while, you may want to turn down the heat or air conditioning. However, you should avoid turning off the HVAC unit completely. The AC and heat can act as humidity stabilizers. This helps ensure there is not an excess buildup of moisture in a unit.

Turn Off the Water

When a building is not getting regular use, it might be a good idea to turn off the water. This reduces the chances of water damage taking place due to a leaky faucet or burst pipe. Turning off the water is not only a good mold prevention tactic, but it could also help you save money as you try to rent out the space.

Respond Quickly to Concerns

If a tenant complains about a mildew smell or water issues, you should try to respond as quickly as possible. Catching a problem while it is small may make the fix easier. If there is mold, it is best to start cleaning it up as soon as possible. Leaving it for weeks or months could allow it to spread to other parts of your building.

Schedule Regular Cleanings and Inspections

Being proactive is one of the best prevention methods available. Hiring a cleaning team that specializes in mold remediation may help you find out about mold problems before the issue can cause real damage. You may want to have your buildings inspected once every year.

Mold growth can happen overnight, especially when water damage is involved. Taking a hands-on approach to mold prevention may help you minimize the problems caused by unwanted fungi.

Important Steps To Take After a Fire

1/23/2019 (Permalink)

hat would you do if your business in Mansfield, Oh. suffered a fire? If you practice wise administrative planning strategies and follow federal laws, you already have an emergency action plan in place. Once the blaze has been put out, however, you need to pay just as much attention to fire restoration strategies that get your business back in gear. Understanding the role that restoration technicians and your insurance company will play in the aftermath of a disaster is critical.

Contact Your Insurance Company 

The property portion of your business owner's or commercial policy covers expenses from fire and explosion losses, including repairing and replacing structures, assets and equipment. Once the fire department has left, your first phone call should be to your insurance company. Representatives will request some initial information from you to start the claims process, then have you work with an adjuster. If you need to recover critical items such as petty cash or records, consult with your insurance reps. 

Get in Touch With a Restoration Professional 

Now that you’ve invoked the claims process, you need to contact a fire restoration professional to begin cleanup. During this segment of the recovery process, restoration technicians will:

• Inspect and assess your premises
• Board up and place tarps on impacted areas
• Extract water and dry affected surfaces
• Remove smoke and soot damage
• Clean and sanitize 
• Repair and replace destroyed areas

Fires on your commercial property in Mansfield, Ohio can be devastating, but it is possible to return to normal operations after this sort of disaster. Having comprehensive indemnity coverage that includes fire insurance as well as fire restoration professionals proficient in water, soot and smoke cleaning are both essentials in getting back to business. You’ll need to work with both insurance and disaster recovery experts for documenting your losses and aiding them in handling replacement and repairs.

If it is unsafe to operate electrical equipment until the moisture is eliminated, SERVPRO uses sources on our service vehicles to generate the power needed to pump and extract the icy water. The carpeting in your dining area responds well to a weighted wanding with a commercial grade extractor. Our technicians receive IICRC training intended to prepare them for comprehensive in-place water removal of floor coverings. The carpet, padding, and sub floor must all be dried to industry standards to minimize secondary damage.

After the extraction, SERVPRO employees place air movers and dehumidifiers in strategic spots to complete the drying of the floors and other areas. We use advanced monitoring probes to measure the moisture levels and to isolate any pockets of water that may be lurking behind equipment, in walls, or below the floor. If residual pooling of water is a problem, we take steps to release the water and either pump or extract it out of the spaces.

We move quickly to remove the water and dry out spaces as we realize any downtime is disadvantageous to your business. If it all possible we work with you to isolate our work areas from your customer service areas so that your patrons can enjoy relaxing while we clean up and dry the affected areas. SERVPRO has a restoration mentality and strives hard to transform a water loss “Like it never even happened.” with as little muss and fuss as possible.
