What Safety Issues Should I Be Concerned About?

If you had a pipe burst over the weekend or another incident sent gallons of water throughout the office, fast and efficient commercial water removal in Clifton Park is the best way to get everything back to normal. Some of the potential safety concerns you may have to address includes:

We Can Help Limit Loss from Water Damage in Your Clifton Park Commercial Space

For commercial water damage restoration to be a success, it is best to act immediately. Hiring experts ensure that all areas with excessive moisture are addressed to limit the amount of loss. Once you call SERVPRO to your commercial space, we determine the types of extraction methods necessary, calculate how much equipment to have on-site, and estimate how long the project will take.

Even if you feel that you have enough staff on hand to help with commercial water damage in Clifton Park, SERVPRO technicians have training and skills that help us to facilitate fast cleanup. We come to each job fully prepared with trucks loaded with the right equipment to help remove water, ensure everything is dried, and work on disinfecting the space to inhibit mold growth. Our team understands how many gallons per hour we can remove from your commercial space with our equipment, and we put a solid plan in place to execute each step with precision.

Detailed Planning
Even if we determine the amount of standing water that is present within your building, there is more to the water removal story. Water often soaks into both semi-porous and porous materials through your property, so we take hidden areas into consideration as we work. SERVPRO has skilled technicians that estimate the overall surface area of saturated materials so that we put the right amount of air movers and industrial-strength dehumidifiers in place. Our calculations also allow us the ability to determine what size dehumidifiers are needed and where they should be placed for optimum drying times.

With any water loss situation, time is of the essence. We get to your commercial space and work quickly to lessen damage but also to keep secondary problems from taking hold. Mold starts developing in as little as 48 hours, so our team works to bring moisture levels down throughout your commercial space. In some instances, equipment like centrifugal air movers helps to bring about higher static pressure that speeds up the drying process.

SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County is available whenever you need assistance with commercial water damage. All you have to do is get in touch with us by calling (518) 885-2620, and we send a skilled team out as soon as possible to get to work on an assessment.

We Get You Back In Business In Clifton Park After Fire

Cleaning Up Your Clifton Park Church After a Reception Hall Fire

Cleaning up after a fire loss in your Clifton Park church can require multiple restorative processes. Because fires can originate in different areas of your structure, identifying the full measure of the damage is where recovery efforts begin. Our project manager can walk through the site with our customers when possible to gain perspective on what is most important for the congregation of the church moving forward.

While these disasters can originate anywhere on the property, the reception hall can often be the origin point of fire damage to Clifton Park churches. This larger gathering area has a kitchen section where stoves can get left on and catch pots and pans on fire, but this prep area might also feature outlets and respective circuits at their limitations. Because many receptions and family gatherings using this hall of your church demand power through music equipment, the PA system, and several heating pads or slow cookers, overloading outlets can happen without excessive use.

When fires originate from overloaded outlets, it is a problem that can escalate quickly, In many situations, the fire itself starts within the walls, allowing it to take a real hold on nearby construction materials like drywall and framework in the brief time before others can recognize a threat. Even with suppression systems like sprinklers, controlled demolition, debris removal, and other mitigation tasks must occur to make the reception hall usable again.

Sealing off the fire damaged area of your church can help migrating threats like harsh odors and soot from reaching more challenging areas to clean and recover like the sanctuary. Linoleum flooring can deal with substantial soot residues that can get cleaned with chemical agents and wiping or foam cleaning approaches. In addition to removing harmful soot residues through this direct cleaning path, we can protect the installed flooring and reduce odors as well.

With plastic barriers preventing access and cross-contamination, we can maximize our efforts in this work zone. Machines like hydroxyl generators or ozone machines can run when the church is empty to begin neutralizing smoke odors and filtering out debris and contaminants during controlled demolition and eventual build back by our licensed commercial contractors.

A fire can start in different areas and for different reasons. However, a fast and confident response can help to reduce property damage and expedite recovery and restoration for your church. We know how important it can be to have the full use of your building, so we can work efficiently to get things back to normal. Give our SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County team a call anytime at (518) 885-2620.

How to Remediate Commercial Fire Damage in Clifton Park

1/26/2020 (Permalink)

commercial kitchen with fire Fire damage is something that can quickly happen to your business. Contact SERVPRO for effective remediation efforts.

Effects of Restaurant Kitchen Fires on Your Clifton Park Building

Addressing fire loss impacts must happen as promptly as possible following a disaster in your Clifton Park restaurant. Because you have a steady flow of traffic throughout the day with customers and deliveries, even moderate damages contained in specific areas of the building can still considerably dampen the productivity of your business and the way you can service customers entering your restaurant. Our SERVPRO team can help to determine what your building needs by beginning mitigation as soon as possible.

Containment is a vital step to take after fire damage to Clifton Park restaurants if you intend to continue operating in any capacity. Many damaging elements could compromise the experience of your customers, including the presence of airborne contaminants, possible carcinogens, and lingering odors. Physical damages to surfaces and furniture in the dining area could be even more detrimental and make keeping your doors open throughout restoration unlikely.

Assessing the work to get done is a process that begins with our job scoping. Between our estimator and our project manager, we can meet with our commercial customer to determine the solution that works best for him. It is vital to establish timelines to know when your restaurant can expect to reopen. During our initial inspection, we can determine the tools, products, and personnel required to overcome all immediate effects most efficiently. It is our business to get you back in business.

Airborne threats are one of the most problematic effects after a fire loss. By establishing containment barriers with plastic sheeting, tension poles, painters tape, and wood framework, we can keep contaminants and odors from spreading beyond their highest concentration points. With the deployment of cutting-edge equipment with HEPA filtration like our hydroxyl generators and air scrubbers, we can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns and reduce or eliminate noxious odors as well.

We understand how vital it is to get your business back to running at full capacity as quickly as possible, especially in the demanding food and beverage industry. From content management through improving air quality with premier equipment, our SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County team can help. Give us a call anytime at (518) 885-2620.

How Professionals Remove Water From Office Buildings in Clifton Park

12/16/2019 (Permalink)

Outside of multi-story office building Water loss events on upper floors affect office space beneath. SERVPRO can quickly remediate the damage.

Expertise in Handling Commercial Water Removal Saves Clifton Park Business Center

When everything is working smoothly, it is hard to believe anything can stop operations in a business center. In Clifton Park, a water loss incident brought everything to a standstill after a plumbing system failure in one of the washrooms in the upper floors of the building. Apart from flooding the businesses on the same floor, the leak also sent water through the wall cavities and elevator shaft, affecting lower floors.

Sufficient Extraction Power

Different dynamics determine the steps involved in commercial water removal, and the Clifton Park business center affected by the incident presents a couple of challenges. For example, most of the spilled water stagnated on the relatively level floors, requiring considerable extraction effort. Our truck-mounted water extractors and other high capacity removal equipment came in handy, providing the necessary capacity to remove the water fast.

 Draining Water from Cavities

Intrusion into the walls and other cavities also left water in the HVAC duct lines and C-channel metal framing necessitating other water removal techniques apart from using extraction tools. Our SERVPRO technicians drilled small holes at the bottom of the walls to drain water trapped in the framing. For the ducts, wet vacuuming helped remove most of the water before draining.

 Extraction from Different Floor Types

Our team is well versed with water removal from different floor types ranging from carpeted areas, hardwood floors, and tiles, which made it easier to deal with the different business units within the business center. Fitting the water extractors with squeegee wands for hard floors and carpet wands for the carpeted areas ensures optimal results. Scoping also helped because our SERVPRO technicians could identify aspects such as the pile density of carpets and the type of installation. Pile density lower than 30 ounces and direct gluing to the floor ease the extraction.

Commercial water loss can be challenging to handle. Call SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County at (518) 885-2620 to help find a viable solution to any aspect of the loss, "Like it never even happened."

Emergency READY Profile for Your Clifton Park Recreational Center

Recreation centers have multiple uses and purposes for the entire community, making them heavily used by many Clifton Park residents nearly every night of the week throughout the year. Between community events, meetings, and venue space for wedding receptions and banquets, the center only requires minimal upkeep and maintenance between uses to keep its aesthetic appeal. When unforeseen events occur that have the building battling water losses, you do not have the time to shop around.  

 Preparing in advance for any water damage to your Clifton Park facility can help to keep this building safer if something does go wrong. Our SERVPRO team of professionals can help the property manager to establish something known to our organization as an Emergency READY Profile Plan (ERP.) This information becomes an app accessible to designated employees that can help them to have the right numbers and contacts during an emergency.
 
This free service that we provide to area businesses and commercial properties has been designed to reduce losses from water and fire emergencies substantially. We can identify all routes into the building, where vital shutoff points are for the plumbing and other utilities, and the appropriate chain of command to ensure that work can begin as quickly as possible once our SERVPRO team is en route.
 
ERPs also designate our team as the responder to disasters where restoration is necessary. Our prompt response helps to get mitigation efforts started right away, even in the middle of the night. We understand how much revenue a recreation center can provide, so we can work quickly to dry out the damaged area and to strive to have the project completed before another rental is set to arrive.

How to Prepare your Business for Inclement Weather

2/22/2019 (Permalink)

Flooding can happen any time of year, in upstate New York in the winter it can be somewhat unpredictable. All of that snow and rain and fluctuating temperatures can be devastating to a commercial building, causing damage that can take a significant amount of time and expense to repair. We share here several tips for you to help you prepare your Saratoga Springs business for our winter season and any possible flooding; preventive measures will reduce the amount of flood damage your business sustains and the time it can take to bring your operations back to normal.

  • GUTTERS: Well-maintained gutter systems do a great job diverting water to proper drainage areas. If your gutters are clogged with dead leaves and debris, rainwater can overflow and saturate the ground around the foundations causing damage there while backed-up water can spill into wall structures. A regular cleaning schedule for your gutters is a good idea. Remember: mold spores begin to grow rapidly if left alone in just 24-48 hours!
  • STORM DRAINS: The storm drains on your commercial property need to be maintained properly at all times, but most especially this time of year. Storm drains are in place to move excess water away from buildings and parking areas. Your local government is usually responsible for this, but keeping an eye on them around your property will allow you to be able to report a problem right away and to be ready for storm waters.
  • RESPONSE PLAN: Have a plan ready for your employees before inclement weather hits. In the event of flooding, make sure you have a system in place to communicate to everyone as to their safety, and whether to come into work or not. Your staff should not brave driving through flood waters! Listening to weather updates is a good idea, and you’ll want to make sure you keep an in-case-of-emergency kit on site.
