For example, whether it be a housing building that has sustained fire and soot damage, or a commercial office building that has sustained water damage and is riddled with mold, we know that the longer a restoration takes, the more delay and stress is put on the lives of those affected. That’s why we are always at the ready with only the best equipment and techniques!

Large Building Floods

6/26/2020 (Permalink)

Floods are a common occurrence in any property over time, but when floods occur in large commercial buildings with multiple floors the situation becomes quite a bit more complicated. A common scenario for flooding in large buildings is a flood in a higher floor or level that then leaks and seeps down into the walls and rooms of the lower levels of the buildings. This makes locating all affected areas quite difficult, in addition to this the flood and water can have a huge impact on the other infrastructure within the building such as plumbing and electrical. An issue such as this can also easily serve as a catalyst for mold growth within the building. If you have any questions regarding your home or commercial building call SERVPRO Today.

What to do After a Flood in Your Business

Floods can be miserable ordeals, even with extensive preparation. They can spring up with little to no warning and saddle you with the responsibility of a lengthy, expensive restoration period. Your business could be underwater in a flash, and you could be faced with mounting repair bills and extended interruption to your business. But floods can also be regenerative. Large-scale damage to your business is an opportunity to rebuild and minimize potential damage and disruption that could be caused by future floods. If your business has sustained flood damage, do not panic. Think of it as a chance to fortify your business against future flood damage rather than nothing but a ruinous misfortune.

All in all, it is important to remember that water damage to commercial locations can be excessively harmful because it can quickly not only damage the building but also the contents inside.  Even minor water damage can impact a business’s productivity. Depending on the magnitude of water damage, the water must be removed, the infiltrated areas cleared, and an inventory of losses drawn out.  To minimize the extent of the leak, contact SERVPRO of Cheviot Hills/Palms. With our professional expertise our SERVPRO team can look after all your water damage restoration needs. We possess the essential manpower and technology to correct problems associated with water damage on commercial and business properties.

If your business suffers water, fire, smoke or mold damage, the cleanup and restoration experts at SERVPRO are the premier choice for content restoration and pack-out.

Content Pack-Out

There are scenarios that require business content removal and relocation for prompt and thorough cleaning and restoration. If a business suffers fire and smoke damage, for example, it is often easier, more secure and cost-efficient to take certain contents to another location for restoration work.

SERVPRO of Cheviot Hills/Palms provides complete pack-out services. We will carefully and respectfully take the contents of your home or business to be restored, packed, and delivered to an off-site facility. The pack-out process involves meticulous documentation to ensure your items receive the best possible care, including photo documentation, identification numbers and detailed lists.

  • Artwork
  • Documents
  • Books
  • Photographs
  • VHS and DVD media
  • Clothing
  • Electronics (televisions, computers, stereos, etc.)
  • Furniture
  • Rugs
  • Retail Inventory

Storage

Meanwhile at a SERVPRO restoration location, your items are stored in a secure, climate-controlled environment. They remain there until the cleaning and restoration process is complete.

Content Pack Back

After content cleaning and restoration, items are returned to your business using the same inventory procedures and documentation employed in the pack-out process. Your items are loaded, transported and delivered with great care and then reconciled with original pack-out inventories.

Content cleaning and restoration is offered at SERVPRO locations and on select jobs and services performed. The availability and scope of content cleaning and restoration varies by location, job, insurance provider (if applicable) and other factors.

Mold In Commercial Buildings

6/25/2020 (Permalink)

It may come as a surprise but mold can be severe enough to condemn entire buildings. This has been the case with many types of commercial buildings that can be susceptible to mold because of the nature of the service or capacity they provide, for example refrigerated or special warehouses and buildings that have moist air. Other issues that can cause large scale mold are things such as leaky pipes, flooding, organic materials, or faulty basement sealing. Although a majority of the time most buildings will notice and remediate mold before it becomes so severe that the building would have to be condemned but in certain cases the mold is not as noticeable and causes large scale damage before being serviced.  To prevent these types of issues be weary of the conditions that cause mold and where it can occur.
