Commercial building with soot and smoke

Wildfire disrupts Local Business 

Sylmar and San Fernando suffered a major wild fire last year. The fire went on for a couple days and created a large amount of smoke and soot to all the local businesses and homes. It was devastating to the locals because evacuations were in order and people were uprooted from their homes and forced to leave. SERVPRO of Sylmar/San Fernando decided to step up and help out the community. By dropping off water and food to the local safe zones and helping with evacuations, we were there for this hard time. 

Besides helping out the community, we took on a claim that was very difficult. Imagine a warehouse filled with books. Hundreds of books covered in smoke and soot. It took some time but we were able to restore each and every book that was damaged. The owner of the business was very impressed by our work and staff. He wasn't expecting everything to be as perfect as it turned out to be. The owner was very appreciative for all the hard work and has referred us to many friends after that.

Water damage to your store can rear its ugly head in some different ways from faulty plumbing to over-pressurized sprinkler pipes. In some cases, nearby stores might cause water damage to their facility as well as yours through shared walls. Whatever the case, professional assistance is what you need to get the damage restored and your business ready for the customers that it needs to stay in the black.

Our SERVPRO professionals can appreciate the time constraints that you are under to keep your business running smoothly. Not only are you pressed to reopen your doors in the event of water damage to some regions of the store, but there is also a significant pressing risk of damage to your stock and supply of the goods you are trying to sell. Our team can work quickly to ensure that the least amount of damage occurs and use our expertise and equipment towards restoring that damage as efficiently as possible.

Drying efforts are a combined effort between air movers and spot water extraction with wet vacs. Our team uses thermal imagery to assess further damage inside of the walls where the source of the problem might have been to ensure that the water is thoroughly dried. If the drywall has been compromised through this incident, or in the restoration and repair efforts, our experienced SERVPRO experts have the tools and experience to repair this as well.

Ultimately, your store depends on its doors being open to the public. While you cannot account for water emergencies that might affect your business, you can always count on SERVPRO to help you put things right again. You can reach our emergency response team 24/7 at (818) 365-3736.

4 easy steps to protect your commercial building

9/29/2017 (Permalink)

If you are a business owner you should read and follow these 4 easy steps to make sure you are ready and secure in the event of a disaster in your commercial building:

Step One: Inspect Properties

At least once a month, assess various areas of a building to look for signs of moisture from leaking pipes and fixtures. Check water distribution systems, including bathroom fixtures, kitchen plumbing and drinking fountains, especially devices that are old and degraded. Keep a record of plumbing fixtures that are prone to having frequent failures such as galvanized or steel pipes and connectors. Inspect decorative water fountains, swimming pools and hot tubs at the same time. Understand the particular areas of a property that do not have drainage systems such as parking garages. In a water leak emergency, lower levels of a building without drains require portable or fixed sump pumps.

Step Two: Mitigation Plans

Create and implement a loss mitigation plan for employees to follow when finding a leak in a multi-story building. A basic emergency plan should contain written guidelines that include conducting initial and annual training for staff and tenants concerning procedures to follow after finding a water leak. The plan should also include a map or diagram showing the location of water shutoff valves and exactly how to close the devices. If a building has a sprinkler system for fires, then it is often necessary to turn off these devices to avoid damage from water or chemicals. For confidential or sensitive areas of a building, make a list of the designated employees who can enter the space.

Step Three: Emergency Contact List

Maintain an up-to-date 24-hour emergency contact list with names and telephone numbers for:

• The business maintenance staff
• Plumbers
• Electricians
• Tenants
• Local water company after-hours number
• Water mitigation service vendors such as SERVPRO of Sylmar/San Fernando
• Building agent or broker

Step Four: Additional Plans

When a major water disaster happens in a multi-story business, owners need to know where all records are kept along with essential services and key operating systems. Business owners should always have duplicate records in a safe place off-site in addition to having online records. Understand the procedures for relocation or movement of goods, records or tenants to a safe area. A written plan for evacuation of employees, guests and tenants along with equipment shutdown and closing a facility is essential to save property and people from danger.

Commercial damage and repair

9/29/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial damage is very difficult to get rid of on your own, especially when you consider what goes into fire restoration. Fire restoration involves many different steps and processes, and this is why it is imperative that you hire a fire damage expert who can come to your home and do the clean up for you. They will be able to come and take care of the electrical fire or utility room fire that has happened after firefighters have left using their fire trucks and fire hoses.

Along with having this type of commercial fire damage repair done, you may also want to consider a fire sprinkler system and fire suppression system along with fire restoration. Fire restoration alone is simply not enough, since you will want to prevent the issue from happening in the future using a fire sprinkler system and fire suppression system for your own needs. This is why a lot of people have made the decision to contact the experts after dealing with an electrical fire or utility room fire.
