You notice a massive puddle (expanding rapidly) which happened due to a pipe that burst. You immediately start to feel panic and start thinking of who to call first. You are looking through your phone, papers in your office and time is going by that you cannot afford. Where do you start? 

You remember that you have what is called an ERP from SERVPRO (an Emergency Ready Plan). You suddenly feel relief as all of your contacts are in this binder. You are able to call the plumber immediately and contact SERVPRO for water mitigation through the ERP mobile app. With SERVPRO's 1-4-8 response time guarantee, you now have peace of mind knowing that your business will be in good hands. HELP IS ON THE WAY! 

SO, What exactly is this ERP? To give a brief explanation, and Emergency Ready Plan is a plan that is put in place specifically for when emergency strikes. It is a binder that includes all of your contact information. Everything from the Manager and Owner contact, Plumbers, Sprinkler Fitters, insurance Company/Agent (and policy numbers), Water/Electric/Gas Accounts, Fire Dept, Police and Hospital Information, etc. These ERP's have descriptive pictures which helps you know ever part of your business.

Why Hospital Grade Disinfectants for my Commercial Building?

6/9/2020 (Permalink)

Why are Hospital Grade Disinfectants Important?

06/09/2020

Hospital grade disinfectants clean and reduce the risk of infections. Although often they are associated with medical facilities, hospital grade disinfectants have become increasingly popular! They’re designed to kill germs and sanitize surfaces in areas where bacteria continues to grow. The use of hospital grade disinfectants in cleaning efforts has many benefits.

A large reason for using hospital grade disinfectants is their ability to significantly reduce or even eliminate the incidence of infection. Infection is a serious health threat that can involve transmission of diseases from person to person. Bacteria cannot always be eliminated entirely with typical household cleaners. For example, a bathroom may look relatively “clean” despite a really unpleasant smell that persists. Hospital grade disinfectants can leave surfaces sparkling clean while killing these bacteria’s. These disinfectants are broad spectrum and can be used for multiple areas, from tile and glass to stainless steel and laminate flooring. This makes them usable on just about any area, including bathrooms, offices, kitchens, cafeterias, etc. Hospital grade disinfectants are some of the most efficient and popular products in the professional cleaning industry. They are also the solution for recurring pathogenic issues that often occur in and around bathrooms.

SERVPRO has EPA approved, hospital grade disinfectants for your cleaning needs.

#3 Turn off any central heating system or immersion heater to prevent causing further damage.

#4 Protect all computer systems, documents and possessions. Move them to a safe location.

#5 Check the whole property (front to back, side to side) for water damage. Look for bulging ceilings and remember, your safety comes first! If possible, have another person check with you.

4 Ways To Prevent Storm Damage at Commercial Buildings

6/17/2019 (Permalink)

Take These Four Preventative Measures Prior to a  Storm

Storms can cause significant damage to commercial buildings. Unlike a pipe break, any interior damage that results from leaks or a sewer backup is likely to involve contaminated water. Property owners should pay attention to the weather forecast and take these four preventative measures in the weeks, days or hours prior to a spring storm in Idaho 

1. Trim Trees

Tree branches and limbs are among the most common causes of storm damage. Heavy overhanging limbs may fall on a roof, causing a leak or collapse or becoming dangerous flying debris. Even small branches and leaves can block a drainage system and increase the risks of roof leaks and flooding.

2. Protect Windows

Depending on the location of the structure, the property owner may want to consider installing storm shutters. The cost of these components varies depending on the number of windows that require protection and the shutter material. If a spring storm is expected to arrive within hours or days, building owners or managers can nail up plywood to temporarily cover windows or apply tape in an "X" shape to prevent shattering.

3. Bring Outdoor Items Inside

Any items kept outside should be stowed inside whenever a severe storm is on the forecast. This includes outdoor furniture and trash containers as well as antennas and other delicate equipment on the roof.

4. Clean Out Drainage

Business owners can prevent water from accumulating on the roof or around the foundation of their commercial buildings by clearing out gutters, downspouts, and roof drains at least twice a year. Rainwater should be directed water away from the base of the structure.

Each of these measures may reduce the risk a spring storm poses to a commercial property in Idaho. If adverse weather conditions damage the roof or other structural components and cause leaks, building owners or managers should arrange for cleanup and restoration. 

Wading Through a Commercial Water Disaster

6/17/2019 (Permalink)

Your Commercial Business & Water Issues

6/16/2020

While water damage is bad in any situation, in commercial properties, the disaster is magnified. The business must close during the cleanup process; the employees are temporarily out of work, and the consumers are forced to go elsewhere for their goods and services. While it is all likely temporary, it is still a big financial hit to the business and those who count on it. Therefore, it is necessary to act quickly after the initial disaster to reduce the length of the interruption. One of the best ways to do that is to start the cleanup as soon as possible and to follow a routine when doing so.

1. Be Safe

It is essential to be safe when wading through the floodwater. While broken pipes may have housed clean water, it is likely that the subsequent damage and standing has led to contamination. Also, if flood levels reached electrical outlets, the risk of electrocution is possible. Therefore, turn off the power to the affected areas before entering them.

2. Pump Out Excess Water

It is essential to remove the excess water quickly to reduce the exposure and potential water damage. Start drying out the area by first using pumps and shop vacs to excavate the standing waters. It is essential to wear gloves and masks during this phase of the cleanup.

3. Use Fans and Air Movers

Once the water cleanup and removal is finished, you can bring in air movers and fans to help dry out your facility. It is vital to take your time during this step because rushing may not allow adequate drying time, leaving you with materials that are still contaminated and not suitable for restoration.

4. Hire a Restoration Company

Lastly, a restoration specialist in North Idaho, the area can help restore your business to full operations the right way. These companies have experience with all types of disasters, and they have trained and certified professionals on staff to help you sort through the process.

Commercial water damage can be a costly and intimidating disaster. However, the key to successful mitigation and restoration is fast action.
