Leave Damage Restoration to the Pros

Damage to homes and businesses can take many forms, from water, smoke and fire to mold and biohazardous materials. While many individuals may have plenty of handyman skills, home and business owners should always leave damage restoration to the professionals. There are a variety of dangers involved that restoration professionals are specially trained to handle.

Water is one of the most common types of damage that individuals will experience in South Florida, whether it’s from roof damage, leaky pipes and water heaters, flooding from rainstorms and hurricanes, or water from extinguishing a fire. Damage from any of those sources will require extensive work and there’s more to consider than just the damage.

When floors, attics, and furnishings get wet, the warm Florida environment fosters the growth of mold that can begin to replicate in as little as 24 hours. There are dozens of mold types that can be present and the proper treatment can’t be applied without knowing exactly which type of mold it is. Precautions must also be in place to prevent its spread as it’s removed and prevent other areas from being contaminated.

Restoration professionals are also uniquely qualified to address biohazards that can include crime scenes and septic systems that have overflowed, along with pathogens encompassing bacteria and viruses. All of those situations require a highly-trained team of specialists for clean-up, disposal, and to mitigate contamination.

There are many reasons to hire restoration experts. They have access to methods, techniques and technology not available to the average individual. When contacted promptly, restoration professionals are able to address damage to structures, furniture and possessions to remove water, mold, odors, and smoke damage. They can preserve and restore items ranging from drapes and furniture to electronics.

The services provided by restoration specialists are especially important to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses, particularly during major outbreaks of flu or in the current pandemic. Those services help keep families, employees and customers safe, while providing part of a comprehensive plan for reopening businesses.

Disinfecting Large Spaces

Businesses, schools, and commercial properties present special challenges when there’s a need for disinfection ranging from mold growth to the COVID-19 virus. The company performing the procedure will need to have a highly trained team and be able to deliver services tailored to the specific reason for disinfection.

It’s important to note that cleaning is not the same as disinfecting. Cleaning is typically the process of sweeping, vacuuming, dusting, and similar tasks to remove dirt and dust. Some products used in ordinary cleaning activities may have disinfection properties, but it’s not guaranteed. Disinfection, particularly in today’s environment of COVID-19, means a very specific process designed to kill bacteria and viruses.

Infectious agents are most often spread through airborne droplets when people breathe, talk, and interact at close range. Those infectious droplets stay in the air for a significant amount of time and can continue to infect others. Additionally, traditional air filtration systems and AC units can also serve to spread and exacerbate infections.

A professional disinfection company will take samples and have them analyzed in a lab to identify all types of infectious agents within a commercial space. A detailed plan will be created according to CDC recommendations for disinfection. Ordinarily, contaminated areas will be sealed off. In open commercial spaces, that’s often not an option and disinfection will require unique solutions, depending on the industry involved.

Disinfection procedures may include a combination of techniques to ensure complete coverage of the facility, along with any electronics and soft surfaces in offices and similar areas. Sanitizing procedures may or may not require the temporary closing of the facility as each industry and situation is different.

It’s essential that facility owners obtain a clearance report following disinfection procedures. It certifies the safety and efficacy of the sanitization procedure and provides a record for any pertinent agency that may request it such as OSHA.

It’s important to remember that disinfection procedures are applicable before contamination has actually occurred. It’s an essential safety measure that’s particularly important during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Business Sanitization Solutions

COVID-19 has presented business owners with unique challenges to maintain a superior level of sanitation to help in flattening the curve and curbing the spread of the virus. The pandemic has also raised questions for homeowners, particularly those with the most vulnerable populations. As the virus has expanded its reach, additional demographics have been identified as vulnerable making sanitation solutions for COVID-19 essential.

It doesn’t matter whether a business is currently open, had a reopening, or has been ordered to shut down again, sanitation is an important element of dealing with the virus. The Rapid Restoration Recovery team works closely with clients to identify all infected areas and eliminate all viral hazards resulting from any cause. A clearance report is provided upon completion of each project.

The service is especially beneficial for supermarkets, convenience stores, and warehouses that have been open throughout the pandemic. It provides an important safety measure to protect essential workers to ensure they’re available to serve the public and for continued productivity. Hundreds of asymptomatic shoppers may enter a store each day with the potential to spread the virus.

Sanitation measures are equally critical for schools to protect students, teachers, and staff. Learning institutions are being required to open in August, will need to submit a reopening plan, and set forth safety precautions. Viral sanitation services will play a significant role in that process.

Hospitals, doctor’s offices, and other medical facilities must operate and ensuring that the COVID-19 virus doesn’t spread is an ongoing battle in those environments. With hundreds of patients and medical staff entering each day, the current situation requires more stringent protocols than normal.

The virus struck older individuals and those with underlying health conditions at first. Now it’s affecting an increasing number of young and healthy adults. Many have the virus, but are asymptomatic and are bringing COVID-19 home to friends and family without being aware. It’s just one of the myriad of reasons why Rapid Restoration Recovery sanitization services are an essential part of keeping people safe in businesses and at home.

Safe Schools Begin with Regular Sanitization

During the annual flu season, it’s extremely easy for viruses to be passed among students and staff, family members, and others within the community. That situation is heightened with the COVID-19 virus that is spread between individuals much faster and easier than ordinary flu. Rapid Restoration Recovery has earned a reputation as South Florida’s premier provider of sanitization services for schools.

Florida schools are required to open in August despite the pandemic. Each school must have a reopening plan in place that addresses needs particular to the coronavirus. Maintaining a safe environment begins with regular and thorough sanitization. As educational institutions reopen to welcome back students, Rapid Restoration Recovery has the techniques and technology to stop COVID-19 in its tracks and confirm that educational facilities are 100 percent contaminant free.

There’s a significant difference between cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing. According to guidelines released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • Cleaning utilizes soap and water and while it removes viruses from surfaces, it doesn’t kill them.
  • Disinfecting kills viruses and bacteria through the use of chemicals, but doesn’t remove them from treated surfaces.
  • Sanitization works best as it also reduces the overall number of bacteria and viruses on surfaces, thereby lowering the risk of spreading infection.

To provide a safe learning environment during the pandemic era, schools will need the services of a professional sanitization company that can collect samples and obtains laboratory analysis of the specific types of infectious contaminants that are present. Contaminated areas must be sealed off to prevent spread and the correct solution applied for the specific type of infectious disease. CDC guidelines indicate that learning institutions don’t even have to close to have the facility sanitized.

The CDC recommends that private and public schools begin preparing now for a return to classes amid the existing COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming flu season. Regular sanitization will play a key role in helping to keep schools safe, flattening the curve, and curbing the spread.

Trusted Coronavirus Restoration

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented special challenges for schools, homes, businesses, and commercial properties. Highly contagious and with no treatment or vaccines available, expert sanitation services are essential. Coronavirus restoration is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ongoing protocols for preventative measures.

Coronavirus restoration services are offered for a wide range of locations. The sanitation services for homes are particularly beneficial for anyone that has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Talking, coughing, and even normal breathing can deposit droplets that contaminate surfaces and increases the potential for reinfection. The services are also advantageous for those that want to take precautionary measures to keep their family safe and healthy.

Many people that have contracted the virus don’t demonstrate any symptoms, making it important for businesses to maintain an elevated standard of cleanliness and hygiene. That can be accomplished through coronavirus restoration. The mitigation services are an advantage for any business and especially so for food and beverage-based endeavors.

From childcare centers to colleges, the debate rages on as to when the facilities will open and how. Coronavirus restoration is absolutely necessary to provide the level of safety necessary to ensure that children of all ages and young adults can pursue learning and educational opportunities in a sanitized environment.

Gyms, salons, banks, supermarkets, manufacturing plants, and similar businesses where large numbers of people gather are in special need of coronavirus restoration. They provide a prime vector for the spread of the virus, along with hospitals and doctors and dental offices. Even though many healthcare-related industries are offering more tele-medicine visits, many patients still require in-person services.

Individuals are asked to wear masks and practice social distancing, but a great number of people aren’t following CDC recommendations. Coronavirus restoration services are available for any home, business, or commercial enterprise to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The services provide a healthy and hygienic environment where outbreaks have occurred and any location where the potential exists.

We offer complete professional restoration and sanitation services that eradicate all viral hazards. We also work with clients to help them identify areas that require special attention and address issues at their source. A clearance report is available upon completion of each project.

It doesn’t matter whether your business is open, closed, or receiving customers by appointment only, we can provide services designed to combat the coronavirus and an exhaustive range of other viruses and bacteria. Samples will be taken to identify any and all types of viral or bacterial infection that exists. The samples are verified via laboratory analysis.

It’s an insidious threat since customers may be asymptomatic and not demonstrate any of the typical symptoms of infection.

We create a detailed plan for disinfection and will carefully seal off any contaminated area to prevent the spread to adjoining areas. The most effective antimicrobial solutions and technologically advances are employed, along with high-performance vacuums. No surface is overlooked.

COVID-19 can live for hours or even days, depending upon the type of surface with which it comes in contact. We can help you with the best timing for disinfection that provides the greatest level of safety for you and your customers.

Regular disinfection is critical during the COVID-19 pandemic as you reopen it will continue to be important even after a vaccine is developed.

What Is Sick Building Syndrome?

Sick building syndrome is a term that was coined to describe a building which causes the occupants to experience acute symptoms if sickness (respiratory problems and rash) that go away when they are not inside of the building. The indoor air quality in these so-called sick buildings is often a temporary condition, but sometimes it can be long term. These problems often arise when a building is being operated in a manner in which it was not designed to operate. Here are some indications that you’re in a building that has sick building syndrome.

Sick Building Syndrome Indicators

* Those who live in or work in the building complain of acute symptoms like headache, eye, nose, or throat irritation; dry cough; dry or itchy skin; dizziness and nausea; difficulty in concentrating; fatigue; and sensitivity to odors.

* These symptoms are from an unknown cause and go away when not in the building.

Sick Building Syndrome Causes

* Inadequate ventilation – If a building does not have the proper amount of outside air circulating throughout the building based on how many people are in it, this can cause sick building syndrome. In addition, when heating, ventilating, and air condition (HVAC) symptoms are not working up to par, this can contribute to sick building syndrome.

* Indoor chemical contaminants – Indoor air pollutants can come from things like adhesives, carpeting, upholstery, manufactured wood products, copy machines, and pesticides. Cleaning agents may emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including formaldehyde. Combustion products such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, can come from unvented kerosene and gas space heaters, woodstoves, fireplaces and gas stoves.

* Outdoor chemical contaminants – Pollutants from motor vehicle exhausts, plumbing vents, and building exhausts (like bathrooms and kitchens) can enter the building through poorly located air intake vents, windows, and other openings.

* Biological contaminants – Bacteria, molds, pollen, and viruses are types of biological contaminants. These can breed in heating and cooling vents; in stagnant water that has accumulated in ducts, humidifiers and drain pans; or where water has collected on ceiling tiles, carpeting, or insulation. Biologic contaminants can also come in the form of insect or bird droppings.

Sick Building Solutions

* Remove the pollutant – This includes things like routine maintenance of HVAC systems, replacement of water-stained ceiling tiles and carpeting before occupancy.

* Improve the air quality – Increase the ventilation rate in the building so it circulates outside air better in the building.

* Air cleaning – Use filters to properly filter the air. Use the proper air filter for the space depending on what sort of air particles may be in the air.

It’s important to do whatever you can to improve the air quality in a building, whether it’s where you work or live. This way everyone can remain healthy.

Commercial Cleaning Services

Cleanliness is especially important for businesses ranging from schools and doctor offices to warehouses and fitness centers to prevent the spread of bacterial, fungal, and viral infections. A commercial cleaning service will help clients identify potential sources of infection, design a customized plan to eradicate the cause, and sanitize the premises.

Commercial cleaning services ensure that businesses meet all pertinent cleanliness regulations for their particular industry and there are numerous other benefits of which individuals may not be aware. A thorough cleaning is particularly advantageous during seasonal outbreaks of flu and other viral contagions.

Indoor air quality is one of the top five risks to health in the U.S. A sanitary environment is conducive to greater productivity since there will be fewer illnesses that require employee downtime. A clean workspace is healthier, promotes a better company image and culture, and boosts employee morale. Employees are also more productive in surroundings that smell fresh and are free of dirt, dust, and grime.

Hiring a commercial cleaning company saves money in the long run. It enables business owners to customize services and a timetable that accommodates their specific needs. Regular cleanings can be scheduled and businesses also have the option of establishing their own unique timetable as needed.

A commercial cleaning service has the advanced equipment required to provide environments with a deep cleaning that will aid in preserving furnishings, drapes, carpeting and electronic devices such as computers. Replacing those items can have a significant impact on operating and costs, along with administrative expenses. It’s far more convenient to rely on a cleaning service rather than trying to depend on employees to perform cleaning tasks.

Before deciding to work with any commercial cleaning service, ascertain the type of cleaning you need and take time to discover what services the company offers. The company should be insured, bonded, obtained all applicable licensing, and have trained and professionally certified technicians.

Water Damage CAN be Repaired

There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding water damage to homes and businesses. One of the most prevalent is that water-soaked furnishings can’t be saved. Multiple types of water damage can be repaired, but individuals must act quickly.

Water damage can occur due to broken pipes, backed up toilets and leaky roofs to hurricanes and water used to put out a fire. It’s critical to have the water removed from items as soon as possible and it’s equally important to act quickly to halt the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria, and fungi. Exposure to sewage is a major health hazard that requires specialized expertise and training.

Many home and business owners try to deal with the problem themselves, only to discover the scope of the damage far surpassed anything they anticipated. Depending on the circumstances, water damage can begin in a matter of minutes and it’s not always visible to the naked eye. In addition to furnishings and electronics, the damage done by water will also affect walls, ceilings and floors that can damage structural integrity.

Individuals may be inadvertently placing their health at risk without even knowing it by exposing themselves to the area. There are three categories of water that affect homes and businesses – clean, gray and black – gray and black water represent significant health hazards and should only be addressed by professionals.

When choosing a water remediation and recovery company, choose one that offers 24/7 emergency services and works closely with the insurance company to minimize stress on clients. The company should provide leak detection, thermal imaging, along with complete cleaning, deodorizing and restoration services for the structure and furnishings.

Damage due to a water-related event can be successfully repaired when individuals act quickly and call in the professionals. They have access to specialized methods and technology that helps clients save money, time, and lets them get back to their normal lives quicker.

Commercial Restoration to get Business Running Again

There’s never a convenient time for a business to be down and the loss of revenue can be in the millions whether it’s due to a leak or a hurricane. It’s essential that business owners obtain the services of a disaster team that responds quickly and is able to deal with water damage, remediate mold, and assist with cleanup.

Water does more than damage the immediate surroundings and depending on the origins of the water, it could contain anything from chemicals and flammable oils to sewage. Special techniques and technologies are required to address different types of contaminants and biohazards.

It’s not just a question of removing immediate or residual water, though that’s part of the commercial restoration process. Mold is also an immediate concern. Mold and mildew can begin to grow in a matter of hours and a restoration team will arrest its growth, remove it, and disinfect the premises for the health and welfare of the client’s staff and customers.

Whole office cleaning is undertaken and any salvageable items are treated and returned. Depending on the scope of the water disaster, many items that would have been discarded in the past can now be restored, thereby saving clients time and money. Restoration services can be performed after flooding and fires to remediate damage from smoke and water.

Business restoration also includes cleaning of upholstery, carpeting, windows, bathrooms and storage areas. Floors and structures are treated to full-service cleaning. An element that’s often overlooked by clients is construction cleaning. As materials are removed, care must be employed to prevent the spread of mold and contaminants to other areas, an area of expertise that’s offered by a commercial restoration company.

Time is of the essence for business owners that need restoration services. Every moment that they can’t conduct regular commerce affects their livelihood and those of their employees. Choosing a commercial restoration company that works closely with insurance companies will help get businesses back up and running quickly and alleviate a significant amount of stress for business owners.
