Contaminated Surfaces Present a Potential Problem for Atlantic City Businesses

4/13/2020 (Permalink)

close up of virus cells on a red background Cleaning and sanitizing are both keys to helping stop the spread of viruses.

Preventative Cleaning and Disinfection in Atlantic City.

Recently, Atlantic City and the world have been rocked by a new, rapidly spreading coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that this pandemic will be slowed by social distancing and by effectively disinfecting touch points and surfaces.   

In just under three months, the virus has spread from Wuhan, China to most countries of the world.  Atlantic City is particularly vulnerable to the virus because of its proximity to New York City, the epicenter of the U.S. outbreak.  While this disease’s effects are frightening enough, the illness is made even more chilling by the rapidity in which it has spread and the fact that there is no vaccine available to prevent it.

Experts at the CDC believe that indirect transmission of the virus from contaminated surfaces is a contributing factor. Their studies have suggested that, unlike common flu viruses that can survive outside the body for one-to-three days, the new virus could live up to nine days on surfaces.  It is for this reason that having potentially infected areas professionally cleaned and sanitized could significantly slow the spread of this disease. 

SERVPRO can help by providing preventative cleaning and disinfection.  Over the years, SERVPRO has gained extensive experience in biohazard cleanup.  Our IICRC certified technicians follow CDC guidelines and use CDC and EPA approved disinfectants to thoroughly clean commercial properties, businesses and residential locations. 

Help slow the spread of pathogens by having your location professionally cleaned.  Call SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton at 609-965-0885 for more detailed information about our services during this difficult time.

Advice from the medical and scientific community regarding how to deal with the coronavirus is based on present knowledge, which is subject to change as the situation continues to develop. There can be no assurance that disinfectants alone will be adequate to fully eliminate the virus. We are not physicians or infectious disease professionals. Consult your medical professionals for individual medical advice.

Why Professionals are Necessary to Clean Sewage Backups on Atlantic City

2/27/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO technicians load SERVPRO van with restoration equipment Our technicians are always on call to restore your home from water and fire damage, to biohazard cleanup.

Roots Allow Sewage Backup into Your Atlantic City Home 

Nearly all of the homes here in Atlantic City run into a labyrinth of sanitary sewer pipes underground to the hub of the wastewater facility. Understanding the issues that you can have over the years with this service can prepare you for inevitable problems that might exist. Depending on the age of your house, you might have clay pipes that carry your waste to the tap in the main sewer line. This material is highly sensitive to the force of expanding roots in your yard.   

In many situations, the minor breaking of your sewer line itself is not likely to cause sewage backup or a need for biohazard cleanup in your Atlantic City home. Roots that broke the terra cotta material for your service line can form balls in this drain that block solids from passing. Over even a brief period, these solids can dam up your service line until it overflows into your home after enough uses. The backup of sewage in your home is a significant hazard, as it immediately contaminates every surface in the affected room.  

Addressing these concerns falls into the competent hands of our biohazard cleaning specialists. Our technicians receive training through both the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The training enables our technicians to approach the controlled demolition, extraction, drying, and content management of this area in a way that contains the threat from others in the house.   

We utilize potent disinfectants and biocides to clean structural framework. This cleaning gives our in-house SERVPRO contractors a safe foundation to rebuild from moving forward. Also, these same contractors can help to repair the damaged portion of terra cotta (croc) pipe from the root threat or replace the service with more durable PVC upon your request.  

Bio-threats like sewage can be a substantial concern for your home that demands immediate attention. SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton team members can arrive quickly with experienced personnel to help. Contact usl today at (609) 965-0885.

Water Damage Incidents In Your Atlantic Property

2/8/2020 (Permalink)

water damaged flooring Call SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton at (609) 965-0885 to run the restoration cost-effectively.

Adequate Planning for Cost-Effective Resolution of Water Damage Incidents in Atlantic City

When called to a water damage site, SERVPRO seeks to accomplish various goals. Apart from resolving the problems caused by water intrusion in good time, we also aim to do it at an affordable cost for the benefit of the homeowner or the insurer.

We take various measures that help resolve water damage incidents in Atlantic City. Having a crew chief who oversees the entire restoration process, ensuring the quicker and more efficient conclusion of the restoration process is the primary aspect. Some of the issues the crew chief helps with include:

    •    Preparing the team for the exercise
    •    Creating a staging area at the loss site
    •    Supervising the technicians
    •    Documenting the loss

Adequate preparation helps a team perform restoration tasks cost-effectively. For instance, we know the right number of people to bring to the loss site because bringing more people would escalate the labor costs unnecessarily while bringing fewer numbers can lengthen the period it takes to restore the property. Taking longer than necessary can create an opportunity for secondary damages. Our SERVPRO crew chiefs make preparations based on the size of the property and estimates of spilled water, among other issues.

At the loss site, clutter can lead to time wastage and even accidents. Our SERVPRO crew chief supervises the technicians to create a staging area for the equipment, which reduces the trips they have to make to the production vehicle to collect tools. The crew chief also supervises the partial movement of contents within the property to protect them from secondary damage.

Documenting the loss also helps with cost-effectiveness.  Our teams take photos, moisture readings, and check material deterioration. By having a complete idea of what the loss involves, we can take steps that resolve all issues, thus avoiding follow up restoration in the future, which can build costs up unnecessarily.

Costs pile up easily when dealing with water damage. Call SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton at (609) 965-0885 to run the restoration cost-effectively. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Fire Damage In Your Atlantic City Home

Why SERVPRO is the Best Team to Call for Fire Damage in Atlantic City

Nobody likes to think of suffering the loss that comes from fire damage, but the possibility is always there. Instead of trying to take on the cleanup and restoration yourself, it is best to enlist the help of trained technicians that can get in and out in a timely fashion. Our experts at SERVPRO understand how critical timing can be, and we work fast to ensure that your household is on track to getting back to normal as quickly as possible.

When you have had a small fire, it could be tempting to start the cleanup on your own. However, fire damage in Atlantic City may not always be visible to the naked eye. There could be soot and smoke damage deep within various household belongings and materials, as well as hidden moisture from using water to extinguish the flames.

Why Call the Experts at SERVPRO?
Soot and smoke damage seeps into all areas of your home. This includes those that are far from the location of the fire. The residue floats through the air and coats surfaces. It is essential that this residue is eradicated before it has a chance to distort, etch, discolor, and disintegrate fabrics, drywall, wood, glass, metal, and other materials throughout the home. If your HVAC system was running at the time of the fire, the air is re-contaminated until the ducts are thoroughly cleaned.

SERVPRO technicians use methods approved by the Institute for Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and equipment for adequately treating and recovering all of the structures, contents, and systems throughout your home. The process for fire damage restoration begins from the moment that we arrive to reduce the harm caused by acidic soot and smoke. SERVPRO works room by room throughout your home to assess your need for cleanup, detecting residue, and locating moisture that could lead to harmful mold growth.

To eliminate foul odors throughout your home, SERVPRO deodorization experts execute odor eradication using specialized airborne sprays and thermal foggers as necessary. Every measure is taken to help neutralize all of the minuscule particles that carry smells that may otherwise linger in the home.

SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton is available whenever you need help with fire damage. Please give our team a call at (609) 965-0885 for all of your cleanup and restoration needs. We can make it, “Like it never even happened.”

Drying Saturated Carpets in Atlantic City Homes

1/20/2020 (Permalink)

Two SERVPRO vehicles parked in front of a building. Let SERVPRO help keep your carpets safe after a flood damage in Atlantic City.

Atlantic City SERVPRO knows best when it comes to your flood damage.

Many flooring types exist in your Atlantic City home, including ceramic tiling in the bathroom to water-resistant plank wood in the kitchen. Carpeting is also a material found in many spots in the house. When water loss incidents occur, this material is highly susceptible to absorption, which can be damaging in multiple ways. Whether regarding the cost of reinstallation of damaged carpets or the production of mold and microbial threats, our professionals can help.

Drying out saturated carpeting involves many of the tools available to our SERVPRO professionals for restoring water damage in Atlantic City residences. Whether standing water exists on the surface of the carpet or not, an extraction might still be the ideal place to begin. We can utilize attachments like the light wands that connect to our portable extractors and vacuums.

Light wands are ideal for instances where the padding beneath a layer of carpeting is already too saturated and potentially damaged to save. Protecting the carpet might be easier with the removal of subfloor padding that can hold moisture. Wands can address trapped water in the fibers of the carpeting with a direct suction of smaller areas beneath the extractor attachment.

The SERVPRO professionals dispatched to your address during the initial hours following the first notice of loss can also deploy specialized extraction tools for damp carpets. Weighted extractors come in two varieties, including self-propelled and stationary. Self-propelled units are often ride-on options that utilize the weight of the technician to force moisture to the surface for collection. The same premise applies to stationary extractors, as they also use the weight of the technician from one point to the next.

Drying efforts will prove ineffective without removing the trapped water in the flooring material. No matter how severe these water losses might become, our SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton team can help with a dedicated mitigation approach to save our customers time and money. Give us a call anytime that you need us at (609) 965-0885.

Ultimate Solution to Atlantic City Water Damage Situations

11/15/2019 (Permalink)

water puddle between window and cabinet Contact SERVPRO should your home face any kind of water damage. We are available 24/7.

Why SERVPRO Might Use a Disinfectant Solution as Part of a Water Removal Job in Atlantic City

Homeowners in Atlantic City might experience water inside their house from a variety of sources. Rain or snow might pass through a small gap created by an ice dam. Plumbing that freezes can cause breaks in swollen sections that later let water to spray through. Flooding can also occur, even if only in areas nearest exterior doorways. 

The source of the water determines its category, which is why SERVPRO might choose to apply a disinfectant to surfaces when mitigating a house in Atlantic City with water removal techniques. One of our favorite disinfectants to use is Sporicidin® Disinfectant Solution EasyDECON® DF200 because of its wide range of what it can eliminate even with a very low toxicity to humans. The EPA lists this disinfectant as Category IV, which is the lowest possible score for disinfectants.

Some water, like floodwater, contains millions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Treating the surfaces we need to handle eliminates a large percentage of the risk involved in mitigating and restoring homes with flooding. Other times, water passing through an opening in the roof or upper portion of the house passes through areas that contain droppings from vermin or infestations of mold

While our building services crew, under General Contractor License # HIC 13VH05086500, removes the tree, we start removing the water it let inside your property. This water quickly becomes contaminated and deposits microbes everywhere it reaches. 

When we use EasyDECON®, we advise the customer that its application is good for up to half a year, as long as it is not removed, and can prevent regrowth of any microbes in the treated areas. It also prevents odors merely by controlling the microbial population.

Before we finish and perform our final walk-through after a water removal job, we retreat the area again to rule out the possibility of any cross-contamination caused by our work. While the water removal equipment we use brings the moisture content of your home back into normal range, we want to be certain that we have treated everything so it meets or exceeds industry standards. 

SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton is also near Brigantine and Galloway, so We're Always Faster To Any Size Disaster. Call us at (609) 965-0885 when your home needs water removal services because of dampness or flooding.

How SERVPRO Handles Atlantic City Storm, Water, Fire, and Mold Damage Emergencies

10/6/2019 (Permalink)

Back doors of SERVPRO van opened.  2 men removing equipment from vehicle No matter your restoration emergency, SERVPRO has the equipment and experience needed to remediate the damage.

Fire, Storm, Water, or Mold Damage in Atlantic City?  SERVPRO has you Covered

Between our management and even many of our loyal field technicians, we have more than 100 years of combined restoration experience to offer. Because we can offer a full-service approach to recovery and restoration, we can complete jobs more quickly than our customers might expect, while saving their money in the process. We have been serving the Greater Atlantic City area since 2004, which has allowed us to become a trusted staple of the community, offering reliable restoration services whenever disasters strike. In a city that often relies on good fortunes, luck is not always in everyone’s favor when it comes to loss incidents. 

Storm Damage Restoration

We have become a very trusted name in storm relief after the hundreds of homes and businesses that we helped after the destruction of Super Storm Sandy and Hurricane Irene. With the Jersey Shore and other coastal communities housed within our service area, we have an obligation to more than just Atlantic City structures when robust weather systems make landfall. Sandy passed through in 2012, and our team worked tirelessly on mitigation and emergency construction to prevent flooding and further exposure of structural elements. 

Part of our success in storm relief rests on the shoulders of our competent construction professionals. We have a team of licensed (General Contractor License #: HIC #13VH05086500) professionals that can address the many concerns that exist immediately following traumatic storm damages. Atlantic City homes and businesses are often susceptible to significant loss after a single breach in the structure’s exterior, such as a failing roof or broken window. Our professionals can help with emergency board up and tarping services.  

Flooding is a common scenario that accompanies storm damage in Atlantic City homes. Our SERVPRO team has all of the equipment and experience necessary to address flooding concerns as they occur, including high-capacity extraction equipment and trucks, as well as rapid drying solutions designed to be as minimally invasive as possible. 

Water Damage Restoration

Considering that nearly all of our technicians have accreditations through the Insitute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Water Restoration Technicians (WRT), it is safe to assume that a vast majority of the more than a century of experience with our SERVPRO team is in this niche. Water damage in Atlantic City homes might happen in multiple ways, but it is the same industry-leading equipment and trained professionals every time to make the situation better. 

We have a knack for structural drying, and that helps us to provide sufficient moisture removal in damaged structural elements and construction materials without requiring removal and replacement. Keeping materials installed in your Atlantic City residence helps us save time and money for you. We even utilize exclusive software of our brand known as DryBook that can help to keep all parties informed about the drying progress and estimated completion. 

As we are part of a large loss service team, we can improve the efficiency of even substantial losses with our deep availability of personnel, recovery equipment, and cleaning products available as needed. In Atlantic City alone, this same conglomeration of our resources has helped us to tackle massive structural losses spanning more than 500,000 square feet. 

Fire Damage Restoration

There is no single correct method of recovery and restoration for fire damaged Atlantic City homes and businesses. Our SERVPRO professionals perform a thorough assessment and inspection when we first arrive at the damaged address, which allows us to determine the best approach to restore the property. This inspection determines the tools necessary to complete these tasks, and what volume of our experienced staff must help in this process to achieve maximum efficiency. 

With so many layers of effects to address when a fire first gets extinguished, it can be refreshing for an experienced team like ours to take the reins. We know what your property needs and how to achieve that result. We can work quickly to begin efforts like debris removal and fire cleanup, which can work to protect many of the installed elements and construction materials throughout your Atlantic City residence. During mitigation, we also have multiple approaches for damaging situations like soot and smoke residue that can adhere to surfaces and contents. 

Content management is one of the strong suits of our entire team, and we work immediately to protect any exposed materials and belongings from detrimental effects. We can work to recover some of your possessions on-site with our premier cleaning products and equipment. Still, many of these same items must get relocated to our nearby facility for focused cleaning, deodorization, and storage.

Mold Remediation

While our SERVPRO team might specialize in content management for fire losses, we also have that same experienced team of cleaning technicians available for the restoration and cleaning of mold-damaged belongings in your Atlantic City property. We know the damage that mold can do to organic materials, documents, and other belongings throughout your home. Our professionals can remove these items from the hazardous zone of your household and store them safely at our climate-controlled facility until remediation completes. 

Mold begins developing within 48 hours of a water loss incident, and you need professional strategies and experience to protect your Atlantic City home. Often homeowners do not notice the growth of this organism, which can allow it to spread and thrive out of sight until the signs of its presence are undeniable. If you suspect mold growth, our team can offer a full inspection complete with environmental testing if necessary. 

Much like the other areas of our restoration services, our IICRC-Certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians get backed by the full-service team of general contractors. These competent professionals can help with controlled demolition, full-scale build back, and tasks like document drying and plumbing repair. With the combined efforts of our restoration professionals and our reconstruction team, we have a confident approach to make Atlantic City mold damage “Like it never even happened.” 

As challenging as choosing a restoration team might seem, you can always count on the experience and continued growth of our SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton team. As a local reputable restoration company, We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. Give us a call today at (609) 965-0885.

Older Homes in Atlantic City, NJ Area Have Higher Risk of Fire

3/29/2019 (Permalink)

Older Homes Are at Greater Risk of Having Fires

If your house is more than 40 years old, it can harbor some unseen fire risks. If you learn about them ahead of time, you can take action to prevent a fire from starting—and keep your home sweet home safe for many more years to come.

Outdated Wiring

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there are about 46,000 fires involving home electrical systems each year, and the majority of those could be prevented with a routine inspection. The CPSC says that in many cases, homes that were built between 40 and 100 years ago hadn't been inspected since they were built.

Be alert to obvious warning signs of a failing electrical system:

  • flickering or dim lights
  • a shrinking of your television picture
  • frequent power outages
  • sparks
  • unusual sounds like sizzles or burning smells
  • smoke
  • any kind of electrical shock
  • damaged insulation
  • warm or hot outlets or switches
  • reliance on extension cords for everyday use

For Fire Restoration Needs Call SERVPRO of Atlantic City/Hamilton/Hammonton @ 609-965-0885

If you can't remember the last time your electrical system was inspected, hire a certified electrician or electrical inspector to prevent a potential disaster. Even if you've had an inspection less than a decade ago, you should contact a professional immediately if you start to notice the warning signs of a bad electrical system. Hire only a Licensed Electrician to do electrical work.

Balloon Framing

In newer homes, each floor is individually constructed to ensure that fire stops between them, but in balloon-frame homes, there's nothing to stop a fire from spreading. Commonly used from the late 1800s through about 1940, balloon framing was a construction method in which a continuous wood stud wall stretched all the way from the foundation of a home to the attic. If your home has balloon framing, flames can spread from the floor to the roof in just seconds.

If you aren’t sure what kind of framing your house has, hire a skilled professional to inspect it. If your home was constructed with balloon framing, a major remodel—to open up the walls and ceilings and install solid blocking to act as fire stops—may be your only option. Alternatively, you may be able to install insulation in empty cavities that would slow or prevent the spread of fire.

Comments From a Recent Client in Somers Point, NP

This client was so happy with our service he rated us a "12" on  a scale of "1 - 10".

When Matt from Somers Point was referred to us by his HVAC company his basement had a significant mold issue from an undetected leak.  SERVPRO was able to work with an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) expert to establish the extent of the damage and establish work plan.  Our remediation was completed in a timely manner, and passed post remediation testing.
