Commercial Is Water Damage Brewing up Trouble in Your Runnemede Coffee Shop? Don't let water damage shudder your business. Call SERVPRO!

SERVPRO Cleans Commercial Water Damage and Gets Coffee Shop Back to Brewing

Commercial water damage devastates a business, especially one that relies on foot traffic for revenue. The sooner cleanup efforts begin, the sooner the shop can reopen and start serving customers again.

When SERVPRO handles commercial water damage in a Runnemede coffee shop, we know that it is vital to have a little downtime as possible for the business during mitigation.

The longer the water remains in building materials and possessions, the more damage it does. When SERVPRO answers a call for cleanup from a water loss, we deploy extraction equipment quickly to pull the maximum amount of water from the property. It is not unusual for our technicians to do multiple passes with different pieces of equipment to ensure we have lifted as much moisture as possible from the affected areas because this speeds up hitting drying goals.

When we position air movers to dry the shop, we want to avoid disruption to the business. When possible, we leave furnishings such as tables and chairs and place them up on blocks for drying in place.

We set drying goals using other air moisture readings from unaffected areas of the property to ensure the target is in the range that inhibits mold growth but also is a comfortable level for anyone inside the shop. Once the property confirms dry through moisture detection readings, we move on to the cleaning and disinfection step of restoration.

If there are any residual odors from the water, and frequently drying, and disinfection takes care of the majority of odors. When needed, we have several devices and techniques to neutralize foul odors left behind by water loss.

Our SERVPRO location holds a general contractor license, and once our technicians complete mitigation for the water loss, we present the property owner with a  list of repairs that bring the property to its preloss condition. If the property owner chooses, we offer seamless service from cleanup to rebuilding as needed.

SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees at (856) 566-3388 stands ready to mitigate commercial water damage and make it "Like it never even happened."

Winter Property Tips

11/22/2016 (Permalink)

1) Prepare for Winter Storms

Heavy snow accumulation can pose a threat to your home or business; not only as it builds up, but also as it melts. Here are things to watch for:

  • Watch for snow accumulation on the leeward (downwind) side of a higher-level roof, where blowing snow will collect. For safe removal that won't endanger you or damage your roof, consult a roofing contractor for a referral.
  • Remove snow from basement stairwells, window wells and all walls. Melting snow can lead to water damage and moisture intrusion.

 

 Ice dams are an accumulation of ice at the lower edge of a sloped roof. When interior heat melts the snow, water can run down and refreeze at the roof's edge, where it's much cooler. Should ice build up and block water from draining off the roof, the water is then forced under the roof covering and into your attic or down the inside walls of your property.

  • Make sure your gutters are clear of leaves and debris.
  • Keep the attic well ventilated so snow doesn't melt and refreeze on the roof's edge.
  • Make sure the attic floor is well insulated to minimize the amount of heat rising through the attic from within the house.

Water intrusion and flood damage from melting snow and ice can threaten property, but by taking the following steps it can help minimize the potential for damage.

Immediately after the threat of physical danger has passed:

  • Make sure the building is structurally safe to enter or reoccupy.
  • Turn off electrical power. Do not use electricity until it is safe to do so.
  • Ensure that natural gas sources are safely secured.
  • Secure the exterior to prevent further water intrusion. This can include boarding up broken windows, making temporary roof repairs, sealing cracks or tacking down plastic sheeting against open gaps in walls or roofs.

When it's safe to begin cleanup:

  • Disconnect all electronics/electrical equipment and move it to a safe, dry location.
  • Begin to remove water-damaged materials immediately.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Haddon Heights/Voorhees or SERVPRO assistance with extraction and drying.
  • By taking immediate action, you will reduce the amount of damage and increase the chance of salvaging usable materials. You'll also reduce the amount of rust, rot, mold and mildew that may develop, and lower the likelihood that the water will lead to structural problems.

 

2) Prevent Plumbing Freezes

  • Pipes in attics, exterior walls and crawl spaces are most vulnerable to extreme cold.
  • Check on all vacant units.
  • Simply turning off the water is not sufficient for a property that is to be left unoccupied for a long period - a lot of water is still in the system, and can cause damage. To remove the risk completely, have a plumber drain down the water and central heating system.  Or alternatively, be sure the heat is on and set to at least 55 degrees.
  • If you go on vacation, leave the heat on, and set to at least 55 degrees.
  • Locate your water main in the event you need to shut it off in an emergency.
  • Drain all garden hoses.
  • Insulate exposed plumbing pipes.

3) Inspect Roof, Gutters & Downspouts

  • Check flashing to ensure water cannot enter the property.
  • Replace worn roof shingles or tiles.
  • Clean out gutters and downspouts.
  • Consider installing leaf guards on the gutters or extensions on the downspouts to direct water away from the property.

4) Check the Exterior, Doors and Windows

  • Inspect exterior for crevice cracks and exposed entry points around pipes; seal them.
  • Use weather-stripping around doors, and caulk windows to prevent cold air from entering the home.
  • Replace cracked glass in windows. If you end up replacing the entire window, prime and paint exposed wood.
  • If your home has a basement, consider protecting the window wells by covering them with plastic shields.
  • Switch out summer screens with glass replacements. Install storm windows, if you have them.

5) Fireplace Inspection

  • Cap or screen the top of the chimney to keep out rodents and birds.
  • Call a chimney sweep to remove soot and creosote, if the chimney hasn't been cleaned for a while.
  • Buy firewood or chop wood. Store it in a dry place away from the exterior of your home.
  • Inspect the fireplace damper for proper opening and closing.
  • Check the mortar between bricks and point, if necessary.

6) Furnace Inspection

  • Call an HVAC professional to inspect your furnace and clean ducts.
  • Remove all flammable material from the area surrounding your furnace.

7) Check Foundations

  • Rake away all debris and edible vegetation from the foundation.
  • Seal up entry points to keep small animals from crawling under the house.
  • Point or seal foundation cracks. Mice can slip through space as thin as a dime.
  • Secure crawlspace entrances.

8) Prepare Landscaping & Outdoor Surfaces

  • Trim trees if branches hang too close to the house or electrical wires.
  • To prevent winter injury, ask your landscaper when your trees should be pruned
  • In areas where the ground freezes, plant spring flower bulbs and lift bulbs, such as dahlias, that cannot withstand winter temperatures.

9)  Prevent Slip and Falls and Other Liability Issues

  • Inspect all property entrances and common areas to ensure they are well lit.
  • Clean Leaves and debris
  • Also have plenty of ice melt on hand to prevent injuries

While you can't change the weather, you can minimize some of winter's biggest threats to your property.  With some sensible planning you can avoid surprises this winter.

Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) Best Practices in Healthcare Construction

10/26/2015 (Permalink)

We have obtained our certification in Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) Best Practices in Healthcare Construction.  This certification teaches members how to contain pathogens, control airflow, protect patients, and work without disrupting adjacent operations. Certificate holders learn how to:

  • classify work areas to minimize risks
  • understand and adhere to ICRA protocols
  • communicate with the facility’s ICRA team
  • In a healthcare facility, patient care is everything. Unfortunately, thousands fall victim every year to infections caused by dust stirred up during renovation projects.
  • Completing construction without releasing harmful contaminants or disrupting daily operations while also meeting project schedules are primary concerns for healthcare officials.   For additional information visit http://www.icraforbuilders.com/
