Severe damage from water can occur in a matter of seconds and increases in severity every minute.  Situations like this require experienced water restoration experts.  If not discovered early, smaller, less visible leaks can do a lot of damage. 

Princeton commercial property owners should contact SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County / Greenville as soon as possible when water intrusion is discovered especially when discovered in an area where water is not normally seen.

Every water remediation process, in Princeton, begins with an assessment and estimate.  The process continues through the entire process, from mitigation to restoration.

Water Restoration and Remediation – Princeton

The water restoration process, or remediation, is described as the extraction of standing water, cleaning of the distressed area, and either drying or removing water-soaked building materials and contents.  Building materials, if damp, may require removal.  The level of damage does not affect the necessary steps in the water restoration process.  Water restoration begins with the assistance of trained professionals engaged in the protection against mold and other water-related damage.  Our team of professionals has unfettered access to pumps for extracting large amounts of water and debris, as well as a full range of exceptional cleaning and drying equipment.

Common Damage Caused by Water

Princeton commercial businesses finding themselves in a situation necessitating water restoration service, need to know the primary causes of water damage.  The primary three common causes of water damage include damaged roofing, faulty plumbing fixtures, or broken appliances.  Damaged roofing could be the result of hail or high winds, in Princeton, which is quite common during the spring.  Water damage severity has been broken down into three categories defined by the level of contamination.

  • Category One: water damage results when clean water leaks from a broken pipe or supply line.
  • Category Two: damage involves contaminated, non-potable gray water from a broken appliance, bath, shower, toilet, or roof that may contain chemicals and microbes.
  • Category Three: incidents involve highly contaminated floodwater or sewer backups that may contain solid waste.

Signs You Need Princeton Commercial Water Restoration

Have you spotted pooling or puddling water?  Pooling or puddling water is a visible sign of ongoing water damage.  Is there the smell of a musty odor?  This smell may suggest a hidden structural leak is causing mold to flourish behind walls. This is precisely why water damage has the potential to be dangerous.  Standing water presents health and safety risks.  The immediate threat by standing water is the potential risk of slip and fall.  Not to say the least, if it is not discovered right away, it can be the ideal environment for potentially harmful bacteria and fungi to multiply and spread.  These safety reasons are why hiring SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County / Greenville is extremely important.

Princeton Water Restoration

After discussing the negatives of water damage and why Princeton water restoration is necessary, what precautions, as a home or business owner, can you take?

  • Be aware of the age of plumbing and the materials.  Perform regular inspections of pipes and appliances
  • Check the condition of your roof after high winds or storms

WHAT TO DO AFTER A COMMERCIAL FIRE

What Should You Do After a Fire at Your Business?

After the flames are extinguished, the smoke has dispersed, and the fire personnel have left, the realization of what has happened begins to set.  It’s an overwhelming feeling of despair and uneasiness of the next steps to start the recovery process.  Your first thought may be how do I save my business?  Just because the building is damaged does not mean your business is lost too.  To reduce the cost of lost business due to a drop in productivity and revenue, have a fire survival plan in place in advance.

The Key to Your Business Surviving a Fire is a Well Thought Out Plan

The key to saving your business after a fire begins with a preemptive fire survival plan.  Every survival plan is unique to every business. However, the necessary foundation of the plan will be similar with most being off-site contingencies.

  • Maintain an up to date contact list – phone numbers and emails
  • Make a video or photographic record of your business – the video or photos are for reimbursement in the event of loss
  • Backup necessary computer files on a weekly basis
  • Maintain an accurate inventory list
  • Maintain a secure backup of accounting records.
  • Have a pre-standing agreement and contact information with SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville

What to Do When a Commercial Fire Occurs

After the fire, do not touch anything!  If you have a business fire survival plan, put it into action.  If you do not, it's ok, contact SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville first! (972)548-6044

Buildings, after a fire, should never be entered without the consent of firefighters.  The hidden and unsafe conditions could contain a health hazard.  Smoke and soot are known for their health-harming capabilities. Disturbing anything on the property could void or lessen your insurance coverage reimbursement.  Never underestimate the seriousness of a commercial fire.  Don’t take a chance, call SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville for professional help.  (972)548-6044

Steps to take after a commercial fire:

  • Turn all utilities off.
  • Turn off water at the valve, and gas and electricity at the meter.
  • Immediately contact your insurance company. If you rent or lease space, contact the property owner’s insurance agent as well.
  • Once the “all-clear” is given, remove necessary items - Business licenses and permits, inventory and accounting records, employee documents, insurance information, cash, credit cards, and checkbooks, and other valuables. NOTE: Make sure fire safes are cool before opening!
  • Notify local law enforcement – to prevent vandalism, theft, and liability issues.
  • Notify employees, customers, suppliers, and vendors – as necessary, including the post office, utility providers, and credit card companies.
  • Call SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville (972)548-6044

Calling SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville quickly can allow for us to begin the mitigation process, including board up, tarping, and other services as needed.  Mitigation is required by your insurance provider to reduce the chance of further damage.  Mitigation will also protect your business from intruder and weather-related damage.

Remember to keep extensive records throughout the process.  Collect and maintain receipts for expenses and note every phone call and related discussions.

Fires happen in an instant, but repairs and restoration is a slow process.  Let SERVPRO of Northeast Collin County/Greenville help you and your company get on your feet after a devastating fire.

The Emergency Kit

2/1/2018 (Permalink)

emergency kit containing basic necessities like canned food, water, blankets, flashlights and matches Are you prepared???

Everyone needs to have an emergency kit handy, on top of an emergency plan, in case of a disaster that leaves you without food, water, and basic necessities for a few days. Every emergency kit should have enough supplies to last AT LEAST 72 hours! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Non-perishable food
  • Manual can opener
  • Water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Battery or hand crank radio
  • Flashlights
  • Extra batteries
  • Wrench or pliers
  • Gloves (work or garden)
  • Medications
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle
  • Dust masks
  • Local maps
  • Battery/solar phone charger
  • Personal toiletry items (TP is a must!)
  • Pet supplies if applicable
  • Blankets

When creating your emergency kit, keep in mind the number of people the kit will be for as that will change the amount of items needed in that kit. For example: each person should have a gallon of water a day, so if you have 5 people that means you would need 15 gallons of water for 3 days! For food each person needs enough food to last 3 days. That could be 15 cans of soup, 9 granola bars, and 21 tablespoons of peanut butter per person (hint: make sure its food your family will actually eat so it doesn’t go to waste)!

You’ll also need a 3 day supplies of batteries enough for your cell phone chargers, radio, and flashlight or lights. Make sure to keep your kit in an easy to carry container such as a backpack or storage box with handles (TIP: a 10 gallon bucket from a hardware store holds a lot)! Be sure to re-think your needs every time your family has a change. Also, keep it easily accessible in a cool, dry place such as your basement, garage, or closet!

This is a extremely basic kit that covers the bare minimum and every family will have different needs for their kit. Be sure to put time and thought into making your emergency kit. SERVPRO aims to keep your family safe and sound during times of disaster! We are here to help no matter the size of the job! Stay alert and stay safe!
