Here to Help with Commercial Fires in Warren, Ohio

2/20/2020 (Permalink)

firefighters with hose extinguishing large building fire Call our team of fire restoration professionals and we will help make any damage “Like it never even happened.”

When your commercial building incurs a fire, you may be faced with lots of emotions, questions, and decisions to make. Recently, we received a call from a commercial property owner going through this exact process.

Read below to find out how SERVPRO was able to assist the business owner during their time of stress and need.

It was an early Sunday afternoon and I received a call from a business owner who was frantic. He walked into his building that morning with a feeling of helplessness as he examined the fire damage that had occurred overnight. Although the structural damage was mild, there was a considerable amount of soot and smoke damage throughout the facility. I assured the caller we would provide an immediate response and assist them every step of the way throughout this daunting process.

What Next?

Upon arriving on the scene, I met with the customer and toured their labor of love. The facility was not huge, it’s run by a handful of wonderful people whom all appear to be family but are not. Each of them looking at me for a determination, a timeline, hope! “How bad is it?” “Can we continue production?” “Will we be out of work?” “How can we help?” 

These are just a few of the questions swirling around. It was in this exact moment that I start doing what I do best and initiating what SERVPRO does best. I begin to answer their questions. By listening intently, I learned what was most important to them and what priorities were at the top of their list.

Armed with their concerns and an understanding of how important their facility was to them, I began to plan, guide, recommend, project and most of all disperse resources. Almost immediately, the SERVPRO crews mobilize with equipment and begin their efforts to make the damage “Like it never even happened.”

More Than Just A Job

The customers were looking at me for answers… regarding insurance, lost wages, lost revenue.

“How are we going to heat the building?”  “What if the pipes freeze?”

SERVPRO has an abundance of state-of-the-art resources available. From skilled technicians, equipment, technology, tools and vendors. All designed to assist in making every restoration project a seamless one.  So, when the factory needs heat, SERVPRO heats it. When the heaters need fuel, SERVPRO fuels the heaters. If the pipes are frozen, SERVPRO has plumbers on call to repair that also.

As for the smoke and soot I previously mentioned, the highly trained professionals at SERVPRO will meticulously clean and deodorize every square inch regardless of how big or small the area. While doing so, we also assist in helping the customer maintain a normal flow of their day to day operations by using containment. As the project progresses, I’m thrilled just being a part of assisting these amazing people.

SEVRPRO is always here to help. When fire or water strike, we help your get back to normal as quickly as possible, as thoroughly as you need! Call our team of professionals and we will also help you make any damage “Like it never even happened.”

Sick Building Syndrome: Myth or Reality?

1/8/2020 (Permalink)

cartoon building and germ spores with the text "myth or reality: sick building syndrome" If you have the feeling that your property may be suffering from ‘Sick Building Syndrome’, call SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County

Do you find yourself suffering from headaches, fatigue or difficulty concentrating while at work? Are your co-workers complaining of dry, itchy, irritated skin? Do these symptoms seem to appear while you are isolated in a building or even a single room at the workplace?

Most people do not easily correlate their symptoms as work/building related at all. They may just write it off as an inexplicable coincidence.  But likely, it’s not a mere coincidence. There is a phenomenon known as ‘Sick Building Syndrome’, and it can be responsible for the symptoms noted earlier. The severity of the symptoms may be in direct correlation to the amount of time spent in that building or room.

As a commercial restoration company, SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County specializes in keeping buildings clean and free of chemical or biological contaminants. Some of the reasons ‘Sick Building Syndrome’ occurs has to do with a buildup of indoor and outdoor contaminants.

Indoor causes can stem from carpet adhesives beginning to deteriorate, pesticides may accumulate, and antiquated wood products may begin to breakdown. Outdoor causes are usually pollutants stemming from ventilation problems within the building resulting in poor air quality. Mother nature can play a role in ‘Sick Building Syndrome’ as well. Animal infestation, mold resulting from water leaks and air borne pollen can compound the issue.

SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County can assist in the effort to bring your building back to a healthier status. As experts in Odor Removal and Deodorization, SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County uses IICRC Standards to identify and eliminate these odors.

If you have the feeling that your property may be suffering from ‘Sick Building Syndrome’, call SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County at (330) 392-6355 to schedule an appointment. This can be a ‘tricky’ undertaking, so leave the restoration to us!

SERVPRO Assists Commercial Building Owners

Desktop with a calculator, a pen and a small chalkboard with the word insurance written in yellow Taking the time to meet with your agent to review your coverage will help you decide if your policy is still adequate.

This month is National Preparedness Month on the calendar. This of course is just a reminder that being prepared is key to responding effectively and efficiently to commercial property losses.

One way to stay prepared is to have an annual check-in with your insurance agent. Taking the time to meet with your agent to review your coverage will help you decide if your policy is still adequate. As your business, facilities and assets evolve, the question becomes…are you fully covered? 

Insurance companies have many endorsements you can add to a basic commercial policy that helps cover the inconveniences left from the severe weather we have in Northeast Ohio.  The fact is, the weather can produce damages that we may never have thought possible.

There are extremes such as high winds and hail damaging roofs and tearing off shingles and fascia. Also, torrential down pours that overpower drainage systems and cause sewer and drain back ups in many basements.

SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County works around the clock to make sure our restoration services are exactly what is needed for your commercial property.

We offer a special service called “Emergency Ready Profile” (ERP) for any commercial client. This no cost service is a digital profile of their facilities on a smart phone or tablet that helps businesses respond quicker and become more prepared for a storm event.

No matter what damage may be done or at what time of day it occurs, the ERP App on your phone keeps you connected to help. SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County is right at the tip of your finger.

Commercial Cleaning Services in Trumbull County

3/28/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County offers an array of services that meets the needs of any commercial business

When choosing a commercial cleaning service, one of the factors to consider is the extent of services offered by the cleaning and restoration company. The decision is an important one because you are entrusting your business’s appearance to someone else. 

Some companies use janitorial staffing for (general) surface cleaning like vacuuming or wiping down a restroom. Deep cleaning of the carpets, walls, air ducts and more, are not the type of services building owners have on their mind everyday.

SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County offers an array of services that meets the needs of any commercial business seeking full service cleaning. From the ceiling to the floor, SERVPRO can do more!

Available Services:

Carpet Cleaning

Heavy trafficked areas can leave carpets with built-up soil that can become unsightly and difficult to clean. Carpets trap dust, dirt, and other bacteria, creating a potentially unhealthy environment for employees. SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County utilizes a few techniques to clean carpets and upholstery.

Bonnet Cleaning, preconditioning and rinsing, as well as dry cleaning, are all gentler ways of getting deep to the dirt. Hot water extraction is used to target the tougher areas. 

Floors

Floors endure high traffic and grime buildup as well. Sweeping and mopping are sufficient for surface cleaning but are not always adequate in removing heavy dirt. We clean tile and hardwood flooring by safely sanitizing the surface and grout with state of the art equipment and 'environmentally green' cleaning agents. 

Walls

Walls will collect dirt from touch, smoke and grease. A great deal of this is disbursed through your HVAC system. SERVPRO will clean walls without compromising the paint or finish.  SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County uses proprietary cleaning products to safely and effectively clean ceilings and walls.

HVAC & Duct Cleaning

Indoor air quality is a big concern of many people. Employees spend a majority of their day indoors and should be able to enjoy a dust-free, mold-free, clean air environment.

HVAC systems and air ducts are usually ignored when routine maintenance is performed. Ventilation system cleaning is necessary to maintain the proper air quality and to ensure proper functioning of the system.

SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County has the experience and know-how to inspect the ductwork of a commercial building to determine the extent of the cleaning needed.

Why Call SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County First!

There's more...our team also offers: biohazard cleanup, sewage and toilet overflow, mold and water cleanup and vandalism cleanup and graffiti removal.

From restaurants and hotels, to warehouse and office space, SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County knows the importance of providing a clean, safe environment for your employees and customers alike.

Differentiating the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile

2/26/2019 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County for your "no cost" preparedness plan

Have you ever heard one of your employees say, "I know we have a binder for that, it's here somewhere." Those words are routinely heard in the commercial business world when referring to the storage methods of plans and processes.

Emergency Ready Profiles (ERPs) are amongst the list and are routinely found in a bulging, three-ring binder. It wouldn't be reasonable to permit employees to enter a burning building or to wade through flooded rooms to retrieve the emergency response binder.

The SERVPRO ERP is different. It's a digitized plan that travels with those who need it most. The immediacy of accessing emergency response plans from your mobile device helps minimize  business interruption and provides the critical information needed to begin mitigation services. It contains the necessary information and serves as a quick reference to important aspects of your building.

It seems most disasters occur in the middle of the night or while you're away on vacation. Nevertheless, an ERP from SERVPRO allows you to respond immediately from wherever you are. Action steps can begin with a quick phone call to a SERVPRO close by and the work of mitigating the damage can begin.

The latest research suggests that as much as 50% of businesses close down following a disaster. Of those that survive, the majority had preparedness plans in place. A "no cost" assessment of your facility can be done by contacting SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County at (330)392-6355.

Ice Dam Roof Leak Commercial Building Cleanup and Restoration

12/20/2018 (Permalink)

What is an Ice Dam?

An ice dam is a accumulation of ice in a gutter or on the edge of the roof that forces water against the grade of the roof and into a home or business.

Ice dams can also form around skylights, vents or valleys in the roof.

Ice dams form when heat from inside the structure rises through the ceiling and warms the roof. Snow falls on the heated parts of the roof and melts. The melted snow then flows down the roof until it reaches the part of the roof that is lower than 32°F. The water freezes and begins to form an ice dam.

As more snow melts and refreezes, the ice dam can grow larger and pools behind the large wall of ice.

Over time the water works its way through the shingles or other roofing materials and flows through the roof decking down through the ceiling, interior walls and other parts of the structure.

If left unresolved, the water damage can lead to microbial growth.

If you notice an ice dam and water intrusion to your home or business this winter, call SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County 330-392-6355

Our highly-trained cleanup & restoration professionals have the experience and resources available to help make ice dam damage "Like it never even happened."

For immediate response & cleanup to your Warren, Ohio area commercial fire, call SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County 330-392-6355

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your commercial property, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  Whether you have suffered a commercial office fire, are in need of warehouse fire cleanup or you have a kitchen fire in your restaurant, we have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your company with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Ice Dams in Austintown, Ohio

12/28/2017 (Permalink)

How Do Ice Dams Form?

Usually after a snow storm there is a pile of snow sitting on the roof above your attic. After the weather warms above 32 degrees Fahrenheit to melt the under layer of the snow it causes the top layer to form into a mound of ice.

Damages They Cause:

After the ice dam reaches its full capacity, the melted water begins to seep underneath the shingles along with dripping into the insulation and down to the ceilings.  

How to Remove the Ice Dams?

Removing ice dams can easily lead to damages even if extremely careful. To efficiently remove the ice dams call a professional to prevent damages to your shingles.

Prevention:

To keep your home safe try one of these tips-

A simple prevention method is simply scraping the snow off of the roof the day it falls.

Another way to prevent ice dams is by installing heated cables before the winter begins.

Clean Air Ducts

The EPA states:

You should consider having the air ducts in your home cleaned if-

Puff Backs

1/4/2017 (Permalink)

How Do Puff Backs Occur? 

Puff backs occur due to a furnace malfunction and causes soot to spread throughout your home. This usually occurs with oil burning furnaces that have resulted in an explosion.

Removal Process:

You could try to remove the soot residue yourself depending on the damage. If there is too much soot you will need to contact a professional cleaning service because certain approaches and chemicals are implemented during the removal process.

Prevention:

One simple method of preventing a puff back is by constantly making sure the oil heating system is dust free. Another way for ultimate protection is to have your heating system inspected and serviced annually.

Professional Service:

This could happen to your Hubbard home, if this occurs call us at (330) 392-6355. Our team offers multiple cleaning services to residential and commercial structures. Like our Facebook page for more tips!
