Limiting Secondary Damages in your Business

12/2/2021 (Permalink)

Pictured is a business that has experienced significant flooding damage with the Servpro logo. We are here to help with any water or mold damage needs!

A flood or burst pipe can cause significant water damage inside any business. Excessive water exposure can be particularly problematic because moisture is an essential ingredient for black mold growth. To help prevent secondary damage and the need for mold remediation services, it’s essential that the professional restoration crew you hire performs a thorough cleanup that incorporates essential procedures. If your building features tile, you can also complete important maintenance to help reduce the risk of extensive mold contamination.

Removal of Saturated Materials

The cleanup team should promptly remove all wet items from the water damaged area. Because mold is adept at hiding, it’s essential to discard saturated building materials, including the following items:

  • Drywall and baseboards
  • Insulation
  • Carpets

Replacing these components helps eliminate potential undetected moisture zones behind walls and under flooring where mold can proliferate.

Drying the Affected Space

High humidity and condensation can also result in black mold growth. To help prevent this dilemma, it’s essential to maintain adequate air circulation during the cleanup process. Remediation professionals can utilize fans and dehumidifiers to help remove excessive moisture. They can also employ moisture meters to verify the site is dry before installing new insulation, drywall and carpet.

Proactive Tile Care

Tile floors and walls are also susceptible to secondary damage after flooding. Because cement-based grout is porous, it’s important to take proactive measures to help shield tile from water damage.

Unless it’s properly protected, water can penetrate through grout and flood under the tile structure. This can undermine its stability and create an ideal environment for mold proliferation. To help reduce this risk, you should routinely apply sealant to any tile work inside your building.

Effective Strategies

No business owner wants to endure mold remediation. Fortunately, there are a few strategies that both property owners and flood cleanup crews can employ to help reduce the risk of black mold growth and its subsequent damage.

Give us a call anytime at 989-705-2400 to discuss how we can help you with any of your mold or water damage needs!

Commercial Mold Damage?

Here to Help - mold on wall Mold Remediation Experts

If your Northern Michigan property has suffered water damage, you may be concerned about the potential for mold growth. Since mold spores live everywhere, it is especially important to address any wet areas after a water leak or flood. Mold spores travel through the air and attach to damp surfaces, which can lead to mold colonies if left untreated.

Important Tips to Remember About Mold Include the Following:

  • Mold can establish itself in as little as 24 to 48 hours.
  • Mold thrives in areas with high humidity, dim lighting, and low air circulation.
  • Mold can form colonies in as little as 1 to 12 days.

Mold Growth

If you suspect that mold is growing in your building, it is crucial to check areas that have sustained water damage. Whether the water is from a small, consistent leak or a major disaster, it can lead to conditions that foster mold. When the mold spores land in the correct environment, they begin feeding and breaking down materials such as wood, carpet, and fabric. This can lead to structural damage if not taken care of.

Mold Remediation

Professional cleanup and remediation services are essential to effectively handle mold growth, as experts have specialized equipment and training to detect and remediate the situation. Not only is it imperative to remove the existing mold, but it is also important to fix the source of the water feeding the mold. If the source of the water is not addressed, the mold will return and cause more damage, so this is a crucial step in mold prevention.

If you can visibly see mold or suspect it, you should call SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan as quickly as possible. We are always “here to help," and have the training, equipment, and expertise to take care of your mold problem. Call us today at 989-705-2400

Fire Safety for your Commercial Building

8/31/2020 (Permalink)

Are you looking at purchasing a Commercial Building?

What you need to know for fire safety:

When looking at a particular facility for your business, you should perform a walk through and inspection of the property you are considering.  Pay particularly close attention to the following fire safety items when considering a location for the business:

OCCUPANCY RATINGS: A building’s occupancy rating determines how it can be used wether for office space, restaurant, retail, etc.  Occupancy ratings also specify the number of occupants a building may have at one given time, types of fire-resistive construction required, types of fire protection systems required, exiting requirements, etc. These can change annually.

EXTINGUISHERS: Typically, one fire extinguisher is required per 3,000 square feet of area or 75 feet of foot travel. Extinguishers should be rated 2-A:10-B:C or higher. Requirements can vary depending on the occupancy classification.

EXIT SIGNS: Exit signage and emergency backup lighting are required for all exits except the primary entrance so occupants can safely exit the building in case of an emergency situation.

HAZARDOUS OCCUPANCIES: Businesses that utilize paint booths, glass blowing equipment and certain types of kilns require special approval due to the hazardous nature of this equipment.

In our Northern Michigan Communities, there are many commercial buildings that have been constructed years ago and many have not had any updates when it comes to electrical and heating sources, and are not up to code.  It is important that you protect your investment and your contents when considering a space to either purchase or lease for your business.

Call SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan Today – (989) 705-2400  We will respond with timely mitigation and we offer 24 Hour Emergency Service!

At SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan we have the proper commercial equipment and expertise on handling water damage losses to commercial facilities to help your building get back up and running with as minimal down time as possible.

Whether you experience a water loss from flooding or a plumbing malfunction the general mitigation  process is the same, though each water damage has a unique solution.  Please feel free to click on these steps that we have listed below to learn more about the process.  

Step 1 - Emergency Contact

Once you contact our office at 989-705-2400 the restoration process begins. Our representative will guide you through the first notice of loss and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources needed to respond to your commercial water damage.

Step 2 - Inspection and Water Damage Assessment

A Project Manager or Water Damage Technician will determine the scope of your water damage at this stage. We inspect and test your commercial facility to determine the extent of the water damage and to see which areas it has affected and traveled to make sure we ensure proper mitigation and restoration.

Step 3 - Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately with extraction which removes the majority of the water.  Once the extraction of any standing water is completed, the necessary equipment is set including commercial fans and dehumidifiers.  We also have a variety of other commercial equipment including a trailer mounted Desiccant Dehumidifier that includes a generator when needed.  The water removal and drying out of the structure helps prevent mold growth.

Step 4 - Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean any affected restorable items and structures damaged by the water. We have different techniques of cleaning based on the situation. Our professionals are trained to provide sanitizing treatments and to remove odors and deodorize your property.

Step 5 - Restoration

Restoration is the process of restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

In Case of a Commercial Fire

Retail & Other Business

Business owners should pay particularly close attention to the following fire safety items when considering a location for their business:

OCCUPANCY RATINGS: A building’s occupancy rating determines how it can be used (i.e. office space, restaurant, bowling alley, etc.) Occupancy ratings also specify the number of occupants a building may have, types of fire-resistive construction required, types of fire protection systems required, exiting requirements, etc. FIRE

EXTINGUISHERS: Typically, one fire extinguisher is required per 3,000 square feet of area or 75 feet of foot travel. Extinguishers should be rated 2-A:10-B:C or higher. Requirements can vary depending on the occupancy classification.

EXIT SIGNS: Signs and emergency backup lighting are required for all exits except the primary entrance so occupants can safely exit the building in an emergency.

HAZARDOUS OCCUPANCIES: Businesses that utilize paint booths, glass blowing equipment and certain types of kilns require special approval due to the hazardous nature of this equipment.
