Commercial property damage can be a catastrophic event for businesses, causing disruptions to day-to-day operations, leading to financial losses, and operational challenges. Our property damage mitigation specialists step in to minimize the impact and begin the restoration process. Once we are on-site we can start the initial assessment of the affected property. Experienced mitigation teams with years of experience will inspect the entire property to determine what areas have been affected by the damage. Technicians will use moisture meters and thermal imaging to spot what building materials have been affected even if it isn’t visible to the naked eye.

Plan of Action

A production manager will go over the data to come up with a strategic plan that will tackle the affected areas head-on. Effectiveness and efficiency are important especially when tackling the issues that come with handling property damage. We will go over potential hazards and establish appropriate safety protocols, forming the foundation of an effective mitigation plan. Water extraction would be the next step that is important to get the building back to its operating condition. With the use of submersible pumps and wet vacuums, we can remove large amounts of water quickly in order to carry on with the rest of the mitigation process.

After the water has been extracted from all of the affected areas our technicians will then be able to start the drying process. We use state-of-the-art equipment to dry the rooms that have water present whether it be on the floor after extraction or moisture that has been absorbed by porous materials. Air movers and dehumidifiers are placed strategically to dry the areas affected efficiently and effectively. All of this can greatly control the moisture in the structure preventing mold spores from forming. If mold is discovered, it is addressed quickly, strict containment procedures are followed, and our professional remediation methods are employed to ensure complete eradication. Throughout the mitigation, we will monitor the moisture levels in the air and affected materials to ensure everything is completely dry by the end of the mitigation process.

How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

Frozen pipes are one of the most common causes of water damage during the winter months, preventing them from freezing is important when it comes to reducing the risk of water damage and potential flooding. During periods of extreme low temperatures water within pipes can expand if given the chance to freeze, leading to a cracks forming in the pipe or it can completely burst. When the ice begins to melt, water pressure will begin to force water out of the pipe leading to significant damage that can cost you thousands in repairs.

Here are a Few Ways to Prevent Frozen Pipes

  1. Insulating Your Pipes can Make a Large Difference

Make sure you get any pipes insulated that are located within uninsulated/unheated spaces such as attics, garages, and basements. Insulating your pipes helps keeps the temperature warm enough to prevent freezing instead of allowing the heat to escape in the air. By insulating your pipes your greatly decrease the chances of your water pipes freezing over and over all is significantly cheaper than dealing with potential water damage.

  1. Draining Water From Outdoor Lines

It is important to shut off outdoor water lines and drain pipes, before the winter season begins. Another important task to preform is to make sure that all pool and sprinkler lines are free from moisture in the fall before the temperature gets to cold. Don’t forget to drain garden hoses and shut off all outdoor faucets.

  1. Allow Water Faucets to Drip

When you allow a faucet to drip this can be an effective way to prevent frozen pipes. Don’t worry it’s not necessary to have all the water faucets drip, only faucets that get their water from uninsulated pipes.

  1. Keep your Home or Business Warm

A simple way to prevent your pipes from freezing would be to simply keep your heat on. Inside temperatures should be around 70F. Keep interior doors open to ensure that the temperature is consistent throughout the structure and each room.

  1. Seal Structural Cracks

It is vital to seal any cracks/openings on the structures exterior, around the windows, and doors to prevent air leaks. This helps prevent pipes from freezing during cold weather and as an added bonus bring down your energy bill.

Has Your Home Experienced a Fire Loss?

Our team at SERVPRO of Southern Rockland County, Stony Point understands how overwhelming a fire loss can be and how difficult it can be to get things back to normal. In most circumstances after the fire has ran its course a home owner would want to get the damaged repaired quickly, but there are a few steps that a person should consider before that. A property owner should contact their insurance company in order for them to determine if the damages will be covered and to get a better understanding of the entire process. The next step one should take is to secure their home.

Securing Your Home

When we say secure your home we don’t mean locking your doors. After a fire depending on the extent of the damage there can be hundreds of access points into the structure. A home owner has to consider all the damage that has been done by the flames, smoke, and the fire department. In order to secure your home, you would need to board up holes, windows, and doors.

Boarding up the structure can be a deterrent for vandals and thieves, making the vacant home a more difficult target. In some cases your insurance company may require it. It helps prevent the elements such as rain, wind, and sun from further damaging the structure. In any fire damage situation, the first thing that should be done before any further mitigation work continues is to cover up all the exposed areas of your home as soon as possible.

Inventory Check

Once your home has be deemed safe to enter, you should make an inventory/contents list. Once that is done SERVPRO technicians can help go over what items you determine to be disposed of and which ones are salvageable.

A Leader in Restoration

SERVPRO is here to help and our employees will get the job done to your satisfaction. We are experienced professionals, with training, certification, and countless jobs to back that claim up.
