Water-based disasters can create severe hazards around electronic devices. In a commercial environment with great quantities of electronic equipment, exceptional care must be taken to avoid harm.

As one of the premier water restoration companies for Pismo Beach electronics stores, SERVPRO trains extensively to handle the unique challenges that may present themselves in your business. After an incident, we impose several measures specifically intended to prevent further damage to your building and merchandise, such as:

  • Extracting standing water with powerful pumps.
  • Lowering humidity to a strict 25% threshold.
  • Disconnecting batteries, breakers, and other potential hazards.
  • Maintaining warm temperatures to prevent condensation.

After stabilizing the situation and drying out your sensitive merchandise, we contract a trusted specialist to evaluate individual items, determine the potential for restoration, and salvage all possible items. As a result, many of the damaged items may be sold for much of their original value.

Fire Damage Risks for Commercial Buildings

3/4/2021 (Permalink)

Fire damage is a risk for any business. No matter what type of business you have, the problem is the same: A fire quickly decimates your building and puts your staff in danger. Flames can damage costly equipment and vital paperwork. Below are four top damage risks for local businesses:

  • Outdated Fire Safety Equipment Up to date fire safety equipment is a must. Having the correct tools on hand means you can act faster in the event of a blaze. Every office needs a fire alarm system and appropriate fire extinguishers on every level. Different extinguishers are suited to different types of fire, so SERVPRO recommends contacting a local fire extinguisher company to come onsite and do an assessment of your facility. Remember to test fire alarms and sprinklers regularly.
  • Electrical Equipment Offices have plenty of electrical equipment including computers, copy machines, phones, fax machines, and servers just to name a few. Electrical equipment is vital to the running of an office, but it is also a severe fire hazard. It does not take much for electronic items to spark and start a fire.
  • Damaged or frayed cords, or worn out devices, are also a common fire source. It is a good system to all keep all electric devices in good working order.
  • 3. Lack Of Training Your employees need to know how to avoid fire damage risks, for example by being careful with flammable liquids and not overloading sockets. Your staff also needs to know what to do in the event of a fire. SERVPRO of Pismo Beach recommends every local business have an Emergency Plan and we can provide you with our Emergency Ready Plan at no cost. Emergency Ready Plan is a free app that helps you plan what to do in the event of an emergency or disaster.
  • 4. Combustible Materials Every office has combustible materials such as paper and cardboard. Paper waste and old boxes seem like harmless junk, but they quickly burn once alight. Put a protocol in place for regular emptying trash receptacles to outdoor trash bins.

Our SERVPRO Professionals are highly trained in property restoration. From initial and ongoing training at SERVPRO's Corporate Training Facility to regular IICRC industry certifications, our Professionals are equipped with the knowledge to restore your property.

Understanding Secondary Damage

2/6/2020 (Permalink)

When you have a flood in your commercial building in Pismo Beach/Arroyo Grande, CA it's hard to know what the extent of the damage will be until you get a remediation team in there for an inspection. This crew can help you do the following:

• Assess the damage.
• Create a repair plan.
• Initiate cleanup.

As the professionals are assessing your damage, you may hear them talk about primary and secondary damage. Here's what you need to know about damage that's caused indirectly by the waters.

What It Doesn't Include

This secondary form of destruction can include a wide range of damage, but it doesn't include everything done to your building. The primary damage is anything done when the pipe burst or the roof leaked. For example, black mold growth wasn't caused directly by the flooding, but damaged walls and ceilings may have been.

How It's Formed

Because this type of damage only includes the harm done after the flooding has ceased, how is the damage done? Often slow reaction time, improper cleanup and hidden problems cause what the professionals consider to be non primary damage. For example, black mold growth does not happen the instant a flood starts. Instead, it takes 24 to 48 hours to begin. High humidity may also be a secondary type of damage because it takes place when the water is allowed to sit for too long or is not completely removed from the building.

What It Does Include

Because it's caused by slow reactions, this damage can include mold growth, unsalvageable furnishings, water contamination and the spread of the flood. If a pipe bursts on the second floor, the water may start to travel to lower levels if it is not caught soon enough. The path of the water may be considered secondary or primary damage depending on what caused the travel.

Mold growth, including black mold, is often considered a type of secondary damage. However, your commercial space could by affected by other types of secondary destruction if you don't properly address water issues right away.

Cleaning Up Sewer Damage at Your Commercial Facility

1/11/2018 (Permalink)

commercial help

Sewer backup and flooding present a more serious risk to a building and its occupants that simple water damage. Sewage contains bacteria, viruses and other organisms and contaminants that could cause illness. Sewer cleanup is extensive.

Causes

Although commercial sewage lines tend to be larger than residential ones, sewer backup can still occur. Employees and customers never treat restroom facilities with the same care they would at home. This can lead to clogged sewer lines and a flooded toilet. If this happens, you are dealing with gray water and possibly even black water.

Dealing With Sewage

Water contaminated with sewage should always be handled with care. Gray- and black-water flooding need immediate attention. The waste needs to be removed, the area needs to be dried and decontaminated and the air quality needs to be controlled.

If you are dealing with black-water damage, it is wise to call a professional biohazard and sewage cleaning service in City, State. It can make sure your commercial building is properly cleaned, disinfected and deodorized. As a commercial business owner, this sewer cleanup process is especially important because you are not just putting yourself at risk but your employees and customers as well. Special training and equipment are necessary to deal with this type of contamination.

Depending on the damage, a flood cut may be necessary. This is where the lower portion of walls are removed up to 12 inches above the water damage. Any contaminated insulation needs to be removed. The area behind walls also needs to be dried properly to prevent mold.

A sewer backup at a commercial facility is a problem that needs to be taken care of immediately. Since contaminated water can cause illness, employees and customers should not be invited back to the building until it has been properly disinfected. Professionals can get the job done right the first time so you can get your business back faster with an efficient sewer cleanup.
