COMMERCIAL PROPERTY RESTORATION

Ways to Prevent Fires at your Commercial Property

A fire is one of the most destructive and expensive disasters with which you’ll have to contend. The good news is that there are a number of measures you can take to reduce the potential for a fire and keep your commercial property safe.

Create a Plan

Create a plan for protecting your property just as you would for your home and family. For instance, identify critical areas where flammable liquids or materials may be located so you can inform the fire department when they arrive.

Reduce Fire Hazards

Reducing or eliminating the number of reasons and environments in which a fire can start is essential. That means ensuring that flammable or hazardous materials and liquids are stored correctly. Keeping up the maintenance on equipment and machines is critical. Always make sure electrical wiring adheres to the highest current standards. Old and defective wiring is one of the number one sources of fires. If employees smoke, make sure they do so in a designated area away from the building.

Fire Prevention Equipment

A sprinkler system should be installed in every commercial property. It can stop a small fire from expanding into an inferno and save lives. Smoke detectors and fire detection systems are invaluable for an early warning in the event of a fire. Every property should also be equipped with fire extinguishers and employees should be instructed in their use.

Evacuations

If the property is one where people will be living or working, employees and tenants should all be informed of where exits and fire extinguishers are located. If a fire does occur, you’ll need to have a list of all tenants and/or employees available for first responders and the fire department.

Vacant Properties

Even if a property is vacant, it requires protection. Fire and smoke detectors, along with sprinkler systems should be installed. Eliminate any unnecessary items or materials that would provide fuel for a conflagration. Be sure to install security cameras, as vacant buildings are often a target for arson and vandalism. It’s also a good idea to have security personnel conduct regular checks on the building.

Comprehensive Cleaning after a Disaster

Different types of disasters call for a diverse range of cleanup and remediation methods. A professional restoration and recovery company is an essential part of the process. The experts have the experience, expertise, and technology to address everything from fire, flood and mold to the after-effects of a natural disaster and pandemic infections.

Air Quality

Professional restoration companies will analyze samples to identify the type of sanitation that’s required. Contaminated areas will be sealed off and technological solutions employed to remove any infested areas. Depending on where the problem originates, the company can perform cleaning of ductwork and it may also include mold remediation.

Biohazards

There are many components associated with biohazard cleanup and can include the removal of items contaminated by blood, urine and feces, along with animal or human tissues. Solid items will be collected in a biohazard bag and taken for incineration. Autoclave or chemical treatments will be performed for liquids. All appropriate areas will be disinfected.

COVID-19

There are many types of coronaviruses, including COVID-19, that a professional restoration and recovery company can address. Samples will be taken and analyzed to identify the type of infection that’s present. The experts will seal off any contaminated areas for treatment or the entire structure may be addressed. Surfaces will be disinfected with antimicrobial solutions specific to the type of infection. Treatment is equally applicable for COVID-19, flu viruses, and communicable bacterial infections.

Fire

The professionals aid in every step of fire recovery, from boarding up the structure and removing debris to working directly with insurance companies. They perform smoke, soot and water removal, restoration and replacement of affected areas, and provide ozone treatment. They’ll pack and inventory any salvageable possessions and use technologically advanced techniques to clean any items that can be saved.

Mold

A mold infestation is one of the most common occurrences that individuals may encounter. Comprehensive cleaning will include positive identification of the mold type, sealing off the infected area, and removal of affected materials without contamination of adjoining areas. The space will be cleaned, disinfected, and any surfaces that can’t be cleaned will be removed and disposed of appropriately.

Storms

Clean up after a storm is an enormous task. A restoration company will secure the premises, provide water removal, and mold remediation. Roofs, walls, floors and other areas that have been compromised will be repaired or replaced. Waste and debris removal are provided, along with the restoration of furniture and belongings that can be salvaged.

Water

Restoration specialists will identify where the water is originating and utilize professional drying systems to remove liquids. Thermal infrared imaging will be utilized, mold remediation employed, and the premises deodorized. Restoration and recovery techniques are equally applicable for flood and sewage damage.

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.

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.

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 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.
