Commercial Commercial Fire Damage Experts In Somersworth Talk About Cleaning Items Off-Site It is always a possibility that a disaster like a fire can take place at your Somersworth gift shop.

Commercial Fire Damage

It is always a possibility that a disaster like a fire can take place at your Somersworth gift shop. Even if the blaze happens on a different floor of your building, commercial fire damage can still occur. When something burns inside another unit, things inside your store can burn as well. Smoke coming from the blaze above or next to you can also cause problems with your property. Both the heat and smoke coming from any building near you can cause commercial fire damage to your gift store.

Elements created during a fire such as excessive heat and smoke can create issues with both your building's structural components and the products inside your store. During every commercial fire damage project in Somersworth, our SERVPRO technicians separate the problems into two categories. Problems that occur with things permanently attached to your structure such as carpet and walls are considered structural issues. Any item that gets ruined that is not attached to the building such as shelving units, or your products is put into the "contents" category.

In many cases, a fire can ruin both building materials and your possessions. In these situations, our SERVPRO technicians usually choose to mitigate issues with the items separately. Your contents get cleaned either in unaffected areas of your property or at a third location. Moving items out of areas where the structure is burnt will reduce secondary problems caused during the cleaning or demolition process.

The first step we take when moving out your damaged contents is to make an inventory list of all affected items. Next, our SERVPRO crew carefully packs up each item and puts it in a labeled box. Then, the contents get moved out to a clean storage location. Once we are ready to clean or treat each item individually, we move your contents into a cleaning location that has been cleaned and disinfected.

We take special care of each of your products and ensure that they are clean of any soot or soils created by the fire. If foul odors remain inside your contents, then we can use an ozone machine or ULV fogger to deodorize the objects. If you ever get affected by a structure fire, call SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester at (603) 743-4301 24/7.

Thousands of structural fires take place every year, many of which occur in the Somersworth area. Fires take both homes and businesses as victims when they get ignited. Restaurants have a high rate of burn damage due to a large amount of cooking equipment present. Grease fires and burns caused by malfunctioning appliances are rather common with food service companies. Sometimes the blaze spreads quickly and causes excessive burn damage to appliances and structural components. Other times, the fire gets extinguished quickly, and the only problems that result are smoke related.

Any time even the smallest fires ignites inside your restaurant, problems with soot and smoke residues can occur. Our SERVPRO experts know that commercial fire damage in Somersworth can be expensive and cause your business a loss of revenue. We always make sure to work closely with you and your insurance company to find the most cost-effective way to complete the restoration work.

Removing Commercial Water Damage In Somersworth

Commercial Removing Commercial Water Damage In Somersworth Contact SERVPRO if your office experiences water damage.

An effective plan created by SERVPRO for all water damage situations

We usually define the severity of water damage by the source of the water, the affected property, and how much or how large it is. For Somersworth businesses, this means a combination of clean or dirty water, how much entered the business, and how soaked did the property become before the owner contacted a professional restoration service.

Somersworth commercial water damage comes primarily from faulty plumbing or broken appliances. That can be a broken water line leading into the facility, a failing washer, or a blocked toilet that allows contaminated water to remain in the building, causing not just physical damage, but leaves odors that need cleaning as well. SERVPRO restoration crews train to deal with all of the damage that results from water intrusion.

When the water comes from a higher positioned source, the damage is often more extensive. A sprinkler system, even a malfunctioning one, sends out water over the entire structure. Depending on the interior of the building, it can mean additional drying time for brick, glass, and metal walls. If there are interior office spaces, then our specialists need air movers and fans to dry the interior building material before the excess moisture compromises it.

For more industrial facilities, SERVPRO technicians move directly to drying out the building. There is usually only a small amount of standing water, so our teams remove it quickly with extraction wands and then use long-handled squeegees to push it off the floors and out of the building. Our technicians use the same squeegees to pull down moisture off walls and windows. At the same time, other team members set up dehumidifiers to draw moisture out of the air; as much as 25 gallons per day, per device depending on the inside humidity level.

For traditional office settings, technicians have to deal with the interior material like drywall, ceiling tiles, and carpets. Here, our restoration teams use the dehumidifiers to remove moisture and the extraction wands to draw out water trapped inside carpets. They also well air movers and fans to force warm air up walls and over property while drawing out the inside, cooler, damp air.

Removing and remediating the effects of water damage can be an extensive process depending on the facility. Our task at SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester is to help every owner reopen their doors for business as quickly as possible. If you need our services, call us today at (603) 743-4301.

After Sprinkler Problems, Commercial Water Removal Gear Restores Rochester Diners to Pre-Loss State

4/29/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial After Sprinkler Problems, Commercial Water Removal Gear Restores Rochester Diners to Pre-Loss State Sometimes the equipment that is installed to protect your property, such as sprinklers, can malfunction and cause damage. Contact SERVPRO right away.

SERVPRO Understands That Time is of the Essence When Remediating Commercial Water Damage

Families visiting Rochester often enjoy a quick bite at a family-friendly diner to save money while still providing a decent meal to their children. Just as parents take necessary precautions to protect their children, many business owners install protective measures such as sprinkler systems to ward off disasters. Sometimes, though, these things instead create damage to the interior of your business.
 
When a sprinkler system malfunctions and sends water everywhere inside your diner, commercial water removal services in Rochester can get everything back to normal again quickly. Sprinkler systems thoroughly saturate an area to put out fires effectively before they can spread and grow. This aspect means that the water ends up everywhere, much like a rain shower inside your business. SERVPRO technicians can help keep the time your diner remains closed for repairs minimal, so your business recovers more easily.
 
After earning their IICRC-certificates, our professional technicians continually gain additional experience in restoring businesses of all sizes and industries. Our previous customers include hospitals, restaurants, hotels, bed and breakfast establishments, and many others, providing our employees with a range of environments in which they develop new skills, work alongside our customers' employees, and learn how to avoid disrupting normal business activities. We want to help your business remain a vital part of our local economy and understand the many variables that affect your business' status.
 
Our water removal equipment handles the extraction of standing water, drying out of wet areas, and the elimination of elevated humidity in the air. Small-sized portable pumps that we easily operate by hand remove any accumulated water from your diner's floors. Getting the water removed from here makes things safer for us to work as well as removes a great deal of the water that can end up elsewhere if left alone.
 
Walls and other structures made of absorbent material dry out quickly when we use a desiccant machine, heaters, and air movers. Because this part of the water removal process further increases the humidity, we continually measure the amount of moisture. We track the progress from start to finish, so we know that everything rapidly dries out uniformly.
 
Because sprinkler systems can also suffer a broken line, which shoots water out in only one area instead of everywhere, we can also resolve this situation for you, as well. Elevated humidity happens in this situation, also, so we still measure these levels often.
 
SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester's technicians can help you continue providing the community with your delicious offerings, even after a disaster with your sprinkler system. With water removal services, your diner can get back to normal quickly. Call us at (603) 743-4301 so we can begin working on extracting the water and getting everything back to normal.

Using Commercial Water Removal Services to Protect Your Rochester Foundry

3/5/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Using Commercial Water Removal Services to Protect Your Rochester Foundry After SERVPRO thoroughly removes the water, they then begin to clean up the damages left behind.

SERVPRO Works Quickly to Remove Water and Restore Your Commercial Property

Factory employees sometimes work in hazardous conditions simply because of the type of projects involved in Rochester facilities. Some hazards can more easily happen, and preventing these may seem like an ongoing task. Other hazards take longer to accrue, with some of these situations caused by exposure of equipment to water.

Rochester factories can stop such damage by implementing the services of a commercial water removal company. When SERVPRO professionals arrive at a business that needs such services because of slow leaks, we start out by assessing the situation carefully. We use infrared thermographic sensors to detect the locations of all undesired water and trace this water back to their sources. Only after we eliminate the sources of the water do, we then begin to clean up the damage.

Slow leaks can cause copious amounts of damage to equipment and inventory, both raw and finished products. Removing the water through extraction equipment helps with visible water, but we must also gain control of any water in the form of elevated humidity.

Desiccant machines and powerful air movers help gain the control needed for such situations. We dispose of the water once collected in the machine's tanks and then recheck our meters for expected changes. Once these read normal levels, we can assure you that our work succeeded in restoring your building to normal conditions.

For large leaks and broken water lines, removing the water requires a pump truck and specialized extraction equipment. Once the source of the water no longer poses a problem, we can get started. After the extraction of the water occurs, we can help your employees wipe down machinery and fabrication stations as needed. As above, we use desiccant machines and other equipment to control the overall humidity within your factory.

SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester can be reached at (603) 743-4301 at any time, 365 days a year. Faster To Any Sized Disaster, SERVPRO wants to help all of the businesses in our community thrive even when up against situations requiring water removal services.

Rapid Response to Rochester Water Damage

1/18/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Rapid Response to Rochester Water Damage Customers depend on your store to pick up the items that they need before heading to an event. Contact SERVPRO right after an incident.

Team SERVPRO Arrives Equipped to Dry Out Your Water Damaged Business Quickly

For a Rochester business, any disaster can mean twice the loss. There is the damage to the building that needs repair and the inventory that needs cleaning or preserving to sell it. There is also the loss of sales income each day that the doors are closed to customers.
 
SERVPRO knows that Rochester commercial water damage does not have to destroy a business to shut it down. Many businesses operate on close margins and need to be open every day to ensure they can pay the rent, utilities, and their employees when the first of the month rolls around again. We do everything we can to remove water and reopen doors as quickly as possible.
 
In a small business like a convenience store, most of the goods are non-perishable. That is unless a broken sink sprays water across the backroom and shuts down a refrigerator case. Then, we have a very short amount of time to dry it out and return it to service.
 
Usually, we concentrate on drying the floors first, but this is a very unusual situation. The owner can stock the items in another case temporarily, but overstocking eventually lowers the temperature and results in more spoiled products. Even if the store can partially reopen, there is the nuisance factor, since customers who run in for a cold soda do not want to take it home to chill it. In this circumstance, SERVPRO technicians start immediately to dry out the case once we stop the source of the leak and remove any water from the floor with pumps and water extractors.
 
As long the water did not short out the motor, we can restore function within an hour or two by directing an air mover to force warm, dry air under the case and into the motor compartment. Once we finish with the air movers, a technician uses drying cloths to remove the last trace of moisture around the motor. As he or she takes care of this emergency task, the rest of the response team uses more air movers to completely dry the floor and dehumidifiers to lower the interior humidity.
 
Even when reopening to customers may take a day or two, many businesses still need a response of only hours or minutes to preserve their inventory. If you need our help, SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester maintains an on-call 24-hour response team to take of whatever the need may be. Call (603) 743-4301 today to learn more.

Why Inventory Matters When It Comes To Water Damage In Dover Restaurants

Commercial Why Inventory Matters When It Comes To Water Damage In Dover Restaurants The ERP Can Mitigate Water Damage in Your Dover Restaurant and Keep Your Food Cooking

Restaurant Stock Costs Money, Protect Your Investment with SERVPRO's ERP Plan

Water damage is a risk for most restaurants. Most business owners take great care of their premises, but the best care in the world cannot always prevent a broken dishwasher, damaged roof, or leaking faucet. Water damage happens faster than you think, and for Dover business owners that means having to shut up shop for removal and cleanup.
 
SERVPRO recommends all restaurants in the Dover area take note of their inventory, in preparation for water damage. When a problem arises, it is too late to notice what is on the premises and what to move, save, or otherwise protect from moisture. Draw up a list of everything you have, before disaster strikes.
 
The best place to start is food and beverages. Keep an up to date inventory of all foodstuffs and drinks kept in your business. Take note of items that you need to move when a leak or spill happens. For example, you might relocate all your stores of baking ingredients to a different room if their location gets wet.
 
Know in advance what you have, and where to put it to get it out of harm’s way. Do not stop with perishables, however. Paper such as ledgers and wage slips is susceptible to water damage, and so is electronic equipment such as your computer, cash register, card reader, or telephone. Plan to move any vulnerable items as soon as you spot a leak.
 
One of the easiest ways to take stock of everything in your business is SERVPRO’s Emergency Ready Plan. ERP is an app which is free to download. We recommend installing it on a tablet so you can walk through your business while you follow the on-screen instructions.
 
Taking inventory is helpful in other ways as well. Keeping an up to date list means you can better manage your stocks and buying cycle, which helps keep your business in good financial shape.
 
Do not forget to include your local SERVPRO representative as a contact in your Emergency Ready Profile. That way, you can contact us quickly in the event of water damage so we can act fast and restore your business “Like it never even happened.”
 
For help with water damage mitigation in Dover, Rochester, Somersworth and surrounding areas, call SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester at (603) 743-4301 today.
