SERVPRO Can Help with Mold Growth In Office Buildings!

7/26/2022 (Permalink)

Mold is not always avoidable in Brigantine office buildings, but our SERVPRO expert remediators can help provide a safe environment for your staff and clients.

Mold inspections are among the chief strategies to determine the presence of microbial threats in your Brigantine office building and the viability of these conditions. Our competent project manager can walk through the work areas in the structure and thoroughly inspect construction materials and contents for dampness, water spots, and even visible colonization. We can code these findings with colored stickers and markers to direct our SERVPRO remediators, where work is necessary foremost in the building.

The mold inspection for your Brigantine office building should give you a clearer picture of fungus and mold colonies in the structure. If an infestation is greater than ten square feet, it is always advisable to leave remediation and the necessary restoration of the property to experienced professionals like our SERVPRO team. Visible mold, or areas where third party industrial hygienists have sampled the air and found mold threats, are spaces that can benefit from containment to prevent further spread.

What Are Some Long-Term Solutions to Prevent Recurring Mold?

There are multiple steps required to get your office into a safe and sanitary space again after microbial threats and their volatile organic compounds. Determining the cause of moisture and dampness that facilitates mold growth can direct our in-house contractors to long-term solutions to protect your building, contents, and the staff. Some of the options to regulate moisture concerns include:

    •    Dehumidification Equipment Installed
    •    Structural Repairs
    •    Encapsulation

Mold can often be an overlooked threat in office spaces until the situation gets out of control. When you suspect mold might be present in your business, let our competent SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton project manager help determine the next steps with you.

What Order Should I Carry Out Flood Restoration?

- Emergency services like providing power, boarding up the structure, and safety scoping

- Mitigation of the losses through drying the property and removing non-salvageable materials

- Cleaning and restoring the property as well as installing any necessary replacements

Are Business Premises Challenging to Restore?

We can also perform regular monitoring of the premises to ensure that harmful microbial bacteria or fungi do not infest the property. At the end of our service, a crew chief can perform a walkthrough with you to highlight any areas of damage, as well as inform you of potentially useful preventative measures such as installing vapor barriers or flood bricks.

How Can I Protect My Business From Flooding Costs?

- Secure separate temporary premises to allow work to continue 

- Photograph any existing damage (SERVPRO® can record an item inventory on your behalf)

When fire damage strikes your commercial building, SERVPRO IICRC certified techs have you covered from start to finish.

Superior Project Supervision From SERVPRO Improves the Fire Damage Restoration Experience

Fire damage is disruptive and costly to fix. It might affect vast sections of your business facility, ruin expensive equipment, or even harm input materials that you have taken long to find. Fire damage restoration takes several processes and thus requires the right level of oversight to guarantee the right outcome.

Involving a professional during fire damage restoration of your Atlantic City business premises is essential since it improves results in most cases. Although professionals are mostly consulted because of their excellent skills and sophisticated restoration equipment, you can enjoy other benefits from such a choice. For instance, SERVPRO helps ensure better supervision of the entire restoration process.

In case you are wondering, supervision affects many factors, including:

  • The time renovation processes take to complete
  • How orderly things such as cleaning run
  • Safety and efficiency levels

Fire restoration takes cleanup of various sections like walls, ceilings, floors, and fixtures. Material teardown and removal may also be necessary. Understanding the order in which to perform these tasks eases the process. For SERVPRO teams, the crew chiefs are responsible for establishing order and assigning different tasks to different technicians. With such an established pecking order, delays and conflicts are avoided.

A typical restoration process may follow this procedure:

  • Content pack-out
  • Demolition
  • Structural cleaning
  • Content cleaning

When properly supervised, professional teams can handle tasks simultaneously. For instance, our SERVPRO crews can pack out contents while simultaneously setting up work areas such as staging areas and establishing off-limit sections. 

SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton helps with the complex and simple aspects of fire damage restoration, helping you resume your regular business operations faster. Call us t at (609) 965-0885. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

How do SERVPRO Experts Clean Walls and Ceilings After Fire and Smoke Damage to Commercial Properties in Atlantic City?

Wall and ceiling cleaning procedures address a variety of surfaces. The most common types of surfaces that SERVPRO techs encounter in Atlantic City buildings include painted surfaces, textured plaster, metallic tiles, wallpapers, acoustic tiles, etc. 

The cleaning method that SERVPRO technicians choose during the fire and smoke restoration depend on the surface and residue itself. In many cases, dry cleaning with a sponge is a method of choice, especially if the residue is light to medium and not greasy or oily. 

For surfaces that are painted, made of metal, or wood, SERVPRO techs use wet cleaning. If the residue is oily or very heavy, the restorers might even use Peroxide Active Cleaning.

When Your Hamilton Township Restaurant Has Mold Damage, Let Our Experts Help!

7/8/2021 (Permalink)

Mold is a serious issue that should be taken care of right away. Don't wait, call in the experts at SERVPRO!

Contending With Mold Damage In Hamilton Township Fast Food Restaurants

While you might have already contended with another variety of mold when buns and bread products expired, mold growth that develops harmful colonies can be much more threatening to your business model. The facilitation of structural mold can present health effects for your employees and your customers. Without the appropriate containment protocols taken immediately, you can find yourself unable to keep your doors open once the health department and EPA get involved.

Mold Inspection

Knowing how to identify mold damage in your Hamilton Township restaurant is critical to ensuring that the correct precautionary measures happen right away. Our SERVPRO professionals have a 24/7 response to these emergencies, arriving with multiple Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) endorsed by both the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors (NORMI.) This experience in light of a damaging situation is precisely what your restaurant needs to keep its doors open.

Our SERVPRO team has containment equipment, materials, and protocols that can entirely quarantine affected areas of your restaurant. While there are no guarantees that the damage is not too widespread before our team arrives to prevent the continued running of the location until remediation completes, our technicians understand how costly shutting your doors can be and do whatever we can to prevent this.

Mold Removal

The remediators can utilize specialized equipment like soda blasting to help clean damaged surfaces and remove mold colonization from walls in the restaurant's kitchen area without damaging the substrate. With many of these walls constructed of either rigid plastic sheeting and plywood, metal, or conventional sheetrock, having a system that is not destructive to the hosting material is vital to getting your business up and running again quickly.

We have established relationships with testing facilities to offer post-remediation safety analysis for your restaurant to state the interests of the health department and the parental company. Whenever mold gets discovered, you can count on our SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton to help. Give our professionals a call anytime at (609) 965-0885.

Protection of Documents and Computer Equipment During Atlantic City Commercial Water Removal

5/6/2021 (Permalink)

Water damaged documents are devastating for a business. But don't worry! Call SERVPRO! There are many techniques we can try for restoration.

SERVPRO Techs Take Special Care with Atlantic City Commercial Water Clean Up

There can be numerous concerns going into a business that needs restoration services. SERVPRO techs communicate with the property owner to determine areas within the worksite that are a priority, such as:

  • Important documents 
  • Expensive computer equipment.
  • Data centers and networking devices

When commercial water removal happens in Atlantic City businesses, SERVPRO technicians work on extracting the water and removing personal items that could incur damage from the elevated humidity. Essential papers and files are a crucial part of most organizations. Even though many businesses utilize cloud storage and data center backups, most also have paper files with vital information for daily operations. When this paperwork has gotten wet, it is not necessarily that it needs disposal. SERVPRO techs have training in handling and restoring documents. 

The techs rely on the same methods that the Library of Congress utilizes for historical documents: freeze-drying. The vacuum-freeze-drying equipment used by SERVPRO is the exclusive method approved by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and the General Services Administration (GSA) for document preservation.

In cases where computer equipment has been exposed to moisture, the technicians can arrange for an industry expert to inspect the units before reuse to ensure they are operational and safe to use.

SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton at (609) 965-0885 stands ready for commercial water removal services in Atlantic City businesses.

Hamilton Township Businesses Rely on SERVPRO for Commercial Mold Removal Services

Mold can quickly spread. Inspect for signs of leaks and mold often, and call SERVPRO for mold remediation.

SERVPRO Recommends Proactive Tactics for Avoiding Mold Damage in Hamilton Township Properties

Mold spores are present inside and outside of structures. These microscopic particles harmlessly float until they encounter ideal conditions for germination. If there are conditions that sustain the mold, such as:

  • Humidity over 50%
  • Consumables
  • Temperatures averaging 70-degrees Fahrenheit

One of the top ways to lessen the chances of needing commercial mold removal in Hamilton Township business properties is to perform regular inspections of the property. Once a month, look over the interior and exterior. Mold frequently begins where there are leaks, so checking under cabinets in break rooms and around sinks in bathrooms is an excellent starting place. The exterior can have roof leaks or damaged soffits allowing water to enter. These situations can set up a perfect environment for mold growth. 

Taking the time to do regular inspections can assist with avoiding having to shut down a business for mold remediation. SERVPRO techs can handle any size mold damage issue and arrange for testing to determine the type of mold affecting the property. 

SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton at (609) 965-0885 supports local property owners with commercial mold removal services in Hamilton Township buildings.

What Happens to Wooden Hotel Floors after Fire Damage?

4/1/2021 (Permalink)

Fire damage done to your commercial building can be hazardous. SERVPRO has the manpower and equipment to have your building back up and running.

SERVPRO helps Atlantic City hoteliers with fire damage clean up

Many hoteliers know that wooden floors, especially traditional hardwood floors, lend an elegant ambiance to a hotel and are often a talking point with guests. 

If you are concerned about the fire damage to your Atlantic City hotel, call SERVPRO. We train our teams to assess the damage and design the ideal course of action to get you back up and running as soon as possible. Unfortunately, hardwood floors are particularly susceptible to smoke damage, as their porous surface lets the smoke particles in. Do not despair, however, as there is hope:

  • In some cases, we can simply brush, wipe and vacuum away the soot.
  • We use industry-standard cleaning products to remove soot and restore luster.
  • If the wood floor got wet due to fire-fighting, we can test for moisture and carefully dry the area.

Timing is vital. The sooner we arrive, the better the chance of restoring the floor before the damage gets worse. Please do not delay. 

If you are concerned about the fire damage to the wooden floors in your hotel, call SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton immediately at (609) 965-0885.

While Atlantic City has a storied history, with economic turmoil, significant weather events, and long sandy beaches, the city has maintained a reputation of being known as the world's playground. Developers have viewed the islands and marshlands as prime real estate for a resort town. The first hotel was constructed in 1853; train service began in 1854, connecting Philadelphia, bringing over 500,000 passengers a year to the seaside resort town.

Atlantic City Boardwalk

Atlantic City is known as a vacation destination with many hotels and businesses supporting tourism. The town's first boardwalk was built in 1870 and continues to this day. The boardwalk has gone through many alterations as it grew with the city and weathered many storms, hotel fires, and business evolution. The Atlantic City boardwalk runs approximately seven miles from Atlantic City to Longport as it passes Ventnor and Margate.

The boardwalk is possibly the largest attraction in Atlantic City, next to the sandy beaches and hotels. Atlantic City built several piers with entertainment, rides, and food outlets. On the boardwalk's landside are all of the small businesses, restaurants, hotels, and casinos. Tourists can rent bicycles early in the morning to experience the boardwalk's entire length or visit restaurants in a neighboring city. Thousands of people stroll the boardwalk all day long, taking in the sights and sounds, visiting the casinos and the beach.

Atlantic City Casinos

New Jersey residents approved legalized gambling in 1974, ushering in expansion and an era of construction and a renewal for Atlantic City. The first casino opened in 1978 and grew to over 12 casinos employing 33,000 people by 2011. Since 2012, Atlantic City casinos have seen a decline in revenue due to an economic downturn in the US and legalized gambling in adjacent and nearby states. There have been several casinos that have declared bankruptcy, restructured, and downsized. At the current time, nine casinos are operating in the area.

Attractions and Activities in Atlantic City

Aside from the beach, the boardwalk, and the casinos, there are many other things to do in the area. There are:

  • Several museums,
  • Shopping at Tangier Outlets,
  • Concerts and shows,
  • Boat tours,
  • Various parks and
  • Many activities on the water such as parasailing, surfing, fishing, and much more.

Atlantic City remains a destination for many tourists.

Can Odors from Fires Be Treated?

Even small fires that are contained quickly and extinguished can produce a large amount of smoke and residue that causes odors. Every fire is different; however, unless you remove the odor's cause, clean and seal surfaces, residents may persistently notice a distinct smell in their homes or businesses.

We train our SERVPRO team to identify sources of odors both inside and outside a structure. They follow a time-proven process to remove persistent odors.

  • Removal of all sources of odor
  • Clean and sanitize all surfaces
  • Track the flow of smoke residue throughout the structure for deodorization
  • Apply odor removal products to neutralize unpleasant odors thoroughly

How Quickly Can Mold Remediation Begin in My Atlantic City Hotel?

7/25/2020 (Permalink)

The discovery of mold growth in your hotel can be threatening for both your guests and staff.

Between humid conditions and the constant potential for water damages, the likelihood of mold growth is never far off for area accommodations in Atlantic City

The identification of mold growth in your Atlantic City hotels should always be a constant consideration, especially with many of these conditions developing without your knowledge. Often mold colonies originate from the low traffic areas of the building, including subterranean levels. Moisture and dampness within these areas can allow colonization to occur, which can spread quickly throughout connected air ducts and other pathways to affect the broader area of your structure. When you discover mold threats, it is advisable to seek professional microbial remediation technicians as quickly as possible.

The objective of mold remediation for Atlantic City hotels is to remove the present colonies that could impact the health and well-being of those exposed, and also seek to address the conditions that led to this microbial threat in the first place. Through a combination of our in-house contractors and our accredited Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT), we can offer efficient solutions for active colonization in your hotel to prevent the situation from getting worse. The unabated movement and worsening of microbial threats in your hotel can lead to several specific risks you open the facility and its occupants to, including:

    •    Health hazards
    •    Structural deterioration
    •    Damage to your reputation

How Bad is the Mold Damage?

A quick visual inspection of mold damaged areas of your facility can often be misleading to the actual damage that exists. While you can use this evaluation to determine the presence of mold colonization and a need for microbial remediation, understanding the full measure of the threat is not always as simple as it might seem. Spores can travel through air ducts and other pathways to reach seemingly unaffected areas of your hotel to continue the organism's spread.

In addition to these spreading conditions, moisture and dampness can exist in areas like structural cavities, allowing microbial colonization to be a widespread threat beyond the surface layers of affected materials. Much of the understanding of current damage conditions occur during the job scoping phase conducted by our project manager and crew chief after we first get notified of a loss incident. We carefully evaluate the circumstances to identify:

    •    Current Damages
    •    Pre-Existing Conditions
    •    The Migration Pattern
    •    What Tools/Personnel Are Necessary

What Can Get Done Immediately for Mold Colonization?

Containment is a vital effort when mold gets discovered in your hotel because it can keep guests away from the work area without having to close your doors. The upside to an enclosed work area is that it allows mold remediation strategies to continue throughout the day when guests are more active. We have multiple approaches to removing active colonization from hosting materials, and these choices are made based on several factors. The type of material affected, the severity of the mold growth and the damage's location can all be contributing factors to determining the best solution for controlling growth and structural restoration. Some of the standard solutions for mold remediation by our technicians include:

    •    Sanding – This abrasive technique works on removing then surface layers of exposed materials. This is especially effective with wood framework and other wood surfaces because the colony can often get removed from the most exterior portion of the material before the organism spreads deeper.
    •    Soda Blasting – An objective of remediation is to protect the hosting material and remove the active colonization. Soda blasting can dislodge and remove the entire hyphae of the mold organism, often without damaging the underlying substrate.
    •    Controlled Demolition – Backup plan for our remediators utilizes our in-house contractors to remove compromised portions of construction materials when necessary. With the work area enclosed and free from cross-contamination, we can remove damaged materials and reinstall them without your guests recognizing all of what is happening.

How Can Recurrences Get Prevented?

It is often an essential effort to determine how moisture and dampness concerns became mold growth in your hotel. Usually, this points to structural breaches or malfunctions in the plumbing network or appliances in the building. Identifying where moisture penetrates the property and resolving this concern can help to prevent recurrences in the future.

The discovery of mold growth in your hotel can be threatening for both your guests and staff. The fast response that our SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton team can provide offers you the opportunity to keep your doors open in some situations with effective containment and remediation strategies. However, we can help give us a call at (609) 965-0885.

6/25/2020 (Permalink)

Do you know what type of building materials your going to need to restore your Hamilton Township business? Call SERVPRO to mitigate your issue.

Depending on the severity of water loss incidents, some saturated construction materials can get dried and restored.

 What Type of Materials Do I Need?

Many business owners do not often think of what construction materials might get damaged when water removal in Hamilton Township offices like yours might be necessary. When we respond quickly enough to these emergencies, it is often feasible to preserve exposed materials like ceiling tile, insulation, and joists from deterioration and degradation. This process requires effective water removal from this damaged area and the repair of the plumbing breach that caused the emergency in the first place.

What Tools Can Dry Out Ceiling Systems?

There are several tools in our inventory that can help to remove moisture and trapped water from ceiling materials and beneath floor systems. Regarding the most effective of these approaches for saturated ceiling materials, our technicians often choose:

Is Removing the Material Better?

There are many situations in which controlled demolition might be more appealing to the property owner than the time it takes to dry out structural elements. Ceiling tile, much like drywall, can often get replaced for less money and time then it takes to dry out these materials with our positive pressure systems and air movers. We have a team of in-house contractors to help with this approach as well

We can make water losses “Like it never even happened.” Give our SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton team a call today at (609) 965-0885.

Professional Commercial Flood Damage Mitigation in Brigantine

Call (609) 965-0885 to protect your future inventory from dampness, odors, and other risks.

Your Nearly-Empty Warehouse Needs Professional Commercial Flood Damage Mitigation in Brigantine

With shopping activities at their peak of the year, most warehouses in Brigantine hold more bare shelves than those with product. When saltwater rushes in during a storm and overtakes your near-empty warehouse, letting it dry out over the holidays might seem the cheapest route to take. Despite the initially lower cost, even with scrubbing things down later, this can backfire on you by putting any future inventory at risk.

Instead, SERVPRO recommends businesses in flooded areas of Brigantine call certified commercial flood damage professionals. Doing so ensures that all of the effects caused by flooding, including by saltwater, get addressed in a timely manner. This reduces the risk of corrosion, microbial infestations, and elevated humidity.

At times, mitigating flood damage reveals additional damage. Our building services team is always available to perform reconstruction where needed, under General Contractor License # HIC #13VH05086500. They also perform electrical and HVAC work, streamlining services for our customers.

Increased moisture in the air, especially during the cold winter, can lead to additional problems, including higher heating costs. Damp air feels colder than arid air does, leaving warehouse workers feeling chilly. In the summer, water vapor can leave skin feeling sticky and leave your employees wanting cooler temperatures in which to work.

Also, other issues associated with flood damage include odors and contamination. SERVPRO handles both of these, also. Cleaning with disinfectant sprays kills off many of the organisms that can create odors, but we also rinse non-porous surfaces, leaving them free of residues containing automotive fluids, herbicides, salt, and other substances brought in the flood. Contamination is not always biological in nature but can include inorganic matter, too.

Odors come from substances that enter the air as they breakdown and disintegrate. Our technicians work with our customers until they are satisfied that the odors no longer pose a problem. Odor control is crucial because the molecules causing them can permeate plastic wrapping, fabrics, papers, and many other goods.

SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton is available to mitigate flood damage in your Galloway, Absecon, or Smithville warehouse. Call (609) 965-0885 to protect your future inventory from dampness, odors, and other risks.

Restoration of Commercial Fire Damage in an Atlantic City Shopping Center Bathroom

Illicit smoking in the bathroom does not happen only in high school bathrooms. Your Atlantic City shopping center's patrons might also do the same on occasion. Any of the disposable receptacles in individual stalls or the waste bins near sinks might serve as an impromptu ashtray, possibly starting a fire shortly after the person leaves. 

Situations like this inside the confined area inside a mall in or near Atlantic City cause more than commercial fire damage. The lack of combustible materials in a typical bathroom means such fires often remain short-lived, but the smoke can fill the area and also get pushed into the hallway. Much of this smoke comes from paper burning. Other items that end up in bathroom wastebaskets include plastic packaging, plastic bags, twist ties, other packaging fasteners, and other miscellaneous items.

This mixture of smoke types adheres easily to walls and ceilings, mirrors and stall partitions. SERVPRO technicians use highly effective to address all of these surfaces, making them clean and odor-free again. We use gentle but effective chemicals, like hydrogen peroxide, to remove soot and smoke residue from these surfaces. For smooth surfaces, we wipe the carbon deposits away with a specially manufactured sponge. These sponges do not require water or other liquids to perform quite well.

Different areas of the floor might end up scorched, as well. Whenever the fire damage affecting tile flooring happens to exclude any bubbling or warping, we merely clean the abrasive soot away. However, when tile needs repaired or replaced, our building services team, General Contractor License # HIC #13VH05086500, steps in to perform the necessary work. All of our crews work together, making the experience much faster and less stressful for everyone affected by the smoke and fire damage.

Many of your mall's patrons, as well as store employees, find smoke odors very bothersome. Shops near the affected bathroom might see a drop in sales because of patrons avoiding the area entirely. More sensitive employees might opt to use sick days, adding to the problems experienced by shops in that area of the mall. We also perform deodorization services that target the molecules responsible for causing noxious scents. 

SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton uses teamwork and targeted methods to effectively rid your mall in or near Brigantine, Galloway, and Absecon of smoke residues, charring, and malodor related to fire damage. Our services are always available, day and night, year-round by calling (609) 965-0885.

We Discuss The Type Of Emergency Services We Provide Against Commercial Fire Damage In Atlantic City

“Like it never even happened.”

What Type Of Emergency Services Does SERVPRO Provide Against Commercial Fire Damage In Atlantic City?

No matter if you own a busy coffee shop, serene day spa, real estate office, or a multi-family complex, commercial fire damage needs fast cleanup, and your property needs protection from loss. One of the services a restoration company should provide is the protection of the structure during fire loss cleanup and reconstruction.

SERVPRO provides emergency services for Atlantic City businesses with commercial fire damage. The technicians work to prevent additional loss to the structure from smoke damage and ensure the work site is safe for individuals who enter the property.

Inspection and Securing of the Property
Before beginning cleanup of the fire loss in the property, an inspection to determine any potential safety issues caused by the fire damage to the structure. Unfortunately, after a fire, opportunistic individuals may attempt to remove items from the building. For this reason, the technicians erect security fences and secure the property to prevent any intrusions.

Loss of Electricity is Not an Issue
Another crucial element is access to electricity. SERVPRO technicians can bring their own generators to power their equipment, or they arrange for temporary electric service, so there are no delays in cleanup and restoration.

Coordinate Pack Out
This is especially crucial if only a portion of the property received fire damage. Moving items that have no fire damage out of the area to a safe location protects them from smoke residues and soot. Before packing, technicians inspect for mold and pests to ensure there are no issues such as cockroaches or active mold colonies that could travel with the items.

Arrange for Reconstruction After Mitigation
Using a single restoration services firm for both cleaning, restoration, and reconstruction needed on a fire damaged structure makes good sense. The people who do the cleaning know where the issues are that require repairing. SERVPRO has a general contractor license and offers that service to take some of the stress off of the property owner.

Protect Your Mays Landing Business this Winter

Don't Let Winter Weather Slow Down Your Business

The frigid temperatures of the winter months pose the potential to cause serious damage to your business. Not only is your business at risk of water freezing and bursting pipes, but the roof of your business is susceptible to water damage due to the formation of ice dams, and damage from snow accumulation. Broken pipes pose a common and costly issue, but ice dams and snow accumulation also carry a serious damage risk. 

Ice dams form at the edges of the roof when the heat in the attic causes snow on the roof to melt, which in turn refreezes at the gutters. Regularly cleaning your gutters and properly insulating/ventilating your attic help reduce the risk of forming ice dams. In addition to routine gutter maintenance in the winter, it is important to clean off your roof when snowfall has accumulated over 6 inches. This will help prevent heavy snow collapsing your roof and costly damages occurring inside of your business. Be careful to stay on the ground when attempting to clear your roof, otherwise, hire a professional to clear it for you.

These types of retroactive maintenance on your business give you as a business owner the best odds of making it through the winter without issue. However, should you find yourself in a jam due to unexpected winter damages this upcoming season, SERVPRO has your back.

SERVPRO of Atlantic City/Hamilton/Hammonton provides 24-hour emergency service and is dedicated to being faster to any-sized disaster. We can respond immediately to your storm-related issues in your business or business.  Our team has the expertise to handle your storm damage needs.

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 Atlantic City/Hamilton/Hammonton for 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.
