How to Efficiently Handle Water Damage Repair on Denville Premises

4/19/2023 (Permalink)

Disaster Recovery Equipment Let your local SERVPRO professionals resolve your water damage problems.

SERVPRO Conveniently Combats Denville Water Damage Issues

The impacts of water incursion on Denville business premises can be severe. Being prepared can keep you ahead of water damage issues. For example, you can establish an emergency plan or perform routine maintenance. Nonetheless, even with such preventative measures, water loss can still happen.

Water damage repair at your Denville business must be done quickly to minimize the destructive effect of moisture. Commercial spaces range from individual storefronts to high-rise apartment buildings or warehouses spanning hundreds of square feet. The larger the size, the more complicated water damage can be. Structural materials such as drywall, flooring, and ceiling panels can become heavily impacted. Proper mitigation is crucial in recovering a water-damaged building. SERVPRO teams can quickly remove all excess water, identify salvageable and non-salvageable contents and establish a restoration plan.

Other risks associated with water damage in businesses:

  • Compromised safety
  • Damaged inventory and equipment
  • Revenue loss due to downtime in operations

When your business suffers water damage, the safety of your workers and customers is at risk. Wet surfaces can increase the likelihood of slip and fall injuries. Electrical hazards are also likely due to damp power strips. Operations may also halt when your space is full of water and wet structural materials. This interruption can cause a loss in revenue.

Drying Out Wet Materials

Structural drying helps to save materials that have been affected by the water. SERVPRO crews have the necessary experience and equipment, such as dehumidifiers, to perform structural drying. Dehumidifiers remove water vapor from the air. By reducing the amount of water vapor in the air, we can lower the humidity ratio, which increases the evaporation rate of moisture in a building and its contents.

Different types of dehumidifiers used in water restoration:

  • Conventional refrigerant dehumidifiers
  • Low grain refrigerants
  • Desiccant dehumidifiers

SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County offers prompt water damage repair at your commercial premises. Call us at (973) 895-5000. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Commercial Water Removal for Randolph Businesses

11/16/2022 (Permalink)

muddy, contaminated water, white partition and debris SERVPRO extracts contaminated water from commercial buildings in Randolph and then disinfects it. Let's get back to work!

SERVPRO Water Cleanup is Available

Businesses can succumb to water-related property damages from a variety of sources. Failure to maintain public restrooms, cleaning appliances, and plumbing can all be the root causes of a sudden premises emergency. Equally, unexpected water intrusions can occur from sustained periods of rainfall or local flooding. These events prevent commercial premises from functioning correctly and can force temporary closures that result in revenue losses. Knowing a local restoration service is essential for any premises manager that wishes to deal with these issues promptly and with minimum fuss.

SERVPRO Provides

  • Water damage restoration
  • Water cleanup
  • Emergency services

Communication is the core aspect of successful commercial water removal in Randolph. Our customer services operate twenty-four hours a day to prepare the necessary documentation, mobilize equipment and send technicians to your premises in an emergency. Understanding the context of a water intrusion event can help us correctly prepare for the unique challenges each one presents. This information can include questions about how the emergency occurred, the extent of damages, and how long ago the incident happened.

Water restoration is time-sensitive. The longer moisture resides in a property, the more damage it causes. These damages can relate to contamination, stagnation, microbial growth, and vapor or humidity impact. If the cause of water intrusion is a sewer backup, then it is likely that the high levels of contamination in the water affect the premises. Black water damages often require wholesale replacement of materials that make contact with contaminated materials. Controlled demolitions and extensive sanitization must be carried out to return the premises to a safe state.

Stages of restoration for contaminated water emergencies

  • Contaminated materials are shoveled into double-sealed bags and safely removed from the property.
  • Excess water is removed using specially designed solid waste pumps, while salvageable materials are treated with powerful disinfectants.
  • Extensive cleaning of the affected area and replacements for demolished materials are completed once the site is disinfected.

How Water Damages Warehouses on Randolph

8/16/2022 (Permalink)

Water Damaged Floor Just a little bit of water can do a lot of damage. Call us today to minimize your loss.

Removing Standing Water from Your Randolph Warehouse  

With the winter well underway, structures all over Randolph are battling the crippling cold weather. As cold snaps find their way into the area, immense structures like your warehouse battle to maintain warm conditions despite the general degradation of the metal building and steeply dropping temperatures. Exposed water lines within the structure can fall victim to freezing severe enough to burst the pipes, resulting in several problems for your business.  

The restoration and recovery of water damage to Randolph businesses should fall to the capable hands of professional restoration teams. Our SERVPRO professionals have unique training and cutting-edge equipment to manage both the extraction and drying needs of your business. Also, we have skilled technicians capable of performing pack-out services to protect your wares within the warehouse from the potential ruin they face through direct exposure to standing water. If your company already has our free Emergency Ready Profile Plan app, our responding technicians can move immediately to shut off valves and have a more efficient approach to the recovery of your facility.  

Emergency services like extraction are vital when freezing pipes burst in your facility. Water can quickly collect on the concrete flooring and pool, leaving boxed items vulnerable to direct water exposure and penetration. We have many potential tools that can remove water from the floors of the facility, but the most effective of these for widespread concerns would be our truck-mounted extractor trucks. We can direct the discharge of this standing water to the sanitary sewer and allow our most potent pump to remove water at up to 300 psi.  

Drying out your warehouse falls to the capable machines in our inventory, such as our direct heaters, air movers, and dehumidifiers. Because of the colder weather, direct heaters can help to thaw any other frozen areas of pipe within the damaged area before repair and re-insulation. Centrifugal air movers can get positioned directly at the worst saturated points for effective vaporization of moisture damage.  

Without the fast response of our SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County professionals, water damage in your warehouse can get out of control quickly. We have effective extraction and drying techniques to get your facility back to pre-damaged conditions. If disaster strikes or you want information about planning with our free Emergency Ready Profile Plan, contact us at (973) 895-5000. 

Do You Know the Risks Water Damage Creates in Your Randolph Office?

Hidden Problems to Address after Commercial Water Damage at Your Randolph Office

A water spill at your office may not pose any immediate risks to your employees. However, the disruptions such incidents cause lead to untold inconveniences. Stopping the water source and cleaning up the premises fast should help restore normalcy. It also helps eliminate risks from slip and fall accidents, mainly if you have tiled floors or other materials that tend to be slippery when wet. 

Restoring normal operations after commercial water damage to your Randolph office should be your highest priority. Also, paying attention to other aspects of the loss can help prevent future problems. The pooling water can cause a wide range of issues to the floor materials costing you significant amounts in repair budgets and causing further downtime in the future. Water can cause glued-down carpets to loosen. It can also penetrate beneath tiles reaching subfloors, where it can lead to rotting and other problems. Our SERVPRO crews use advanced equipment such as FLIR thermal cameras to check the actual level of water migration in your office. 

Spilled water continues to harm your property if left to sit over extended periods. Working fast to extract it and dry the property can prevent such complications. For instance, it is possible to prevent wicking water from damaging walls necessitating flood cuts. It is also possible to salvage the vinyl cove molding and other materials reducing costs. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on high-capacity equipment to fast-track the process. Among the equipment we bring to a loss site include:

  • Multi-stage Vacuum Water Extractors
  • Sub-surface Water Claws
  • High Volume Extractor Rovers
  • Wet Vacs
  • Truck-mounted Pumps 

Water spills can create conditions that might damage the electronic equipment you have in your office. Any direct spills can lead to rust, which can make them inoperable. Humidity levels can also cause problems if they are too high. Our SERVPRO technicians use thermo-hygrometers to check humidity levels in your office, determining whether there is a need to take intervention steps. We also ensure that electronic items do not become cold to the dew point to prevent rust.

A simple water spill can have severe implications for your operations. Call SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County at (973) 895-5000 to help address any issues that develop. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Restoring Commercial Fire Damage in Randolph

a fire damageed office with soot covering the walls and desks Business fire damage needs to be handled right away to prevent production losses. Contact SERVPRO 24/7 for effective commercial remediation services.

SERVPRO Can Help Randolph Businesses with Commercial Fire Restoration

If a fire ever breaks out inside your company's break room, there is a chance smoke and flames can spread into your offices. Once the smoke touches cooler surfaces such as your walls, ceilings, or office furniture, it can solidify and turn into soot residues. Even if the flames get extinguished promptly, smoke can still affect several of your building materials and contents.

During commercial fire damage restoration in Randolph, our SERVPRO technicians know that cleaning soot residues can be a major portion of the job. Different types of fires can put out various types of smoke. The type of residue found on your office's contents and building materials depends on what kind of fuels get burnt and how much oxygen the fire has. We can use various chemicals and cleaning methods depending on the residues present.

Services offered after a fire in your office

  • Fire Damage Debris Removal
  • Fire Damage Repairs
  • Smoke Remediation
  • Soot Residues Cleaning
  • Content Cleaning
  • Structural Deodorization

If smoke travels from the fire in your break room to your office, there is a good chance hardwood furniture like your chairs and desks can get affected. Our SERVPRO crew can restore your hardwood furniture depending on the severity of damage and the type of finish. The kind of finish on your office furniture can either limit or expand the number of ways soot residues can get cleaned. It might not be possible to restore an item if the heat caused blistering or if the surfaces got permanently stained.

Dry cleaning with sponges or cloths can work well with unfinished wood or when removing loose residues. Wet cleaning with a low alkali surface cleaner can be effective when cleaning moderate levels of soot residues.

If your office furniture ever gets affected by soot residues, call SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County at (973) 895-5000.

That's why we are on-site in less than four hours from your call to begin cleanup and repairs.

Emergency planning for fire damage situations has also helped many of our customers. No one expects to deal with fire; however, having an emergency plan to deal with emergency events can help the business survive these events. For example:

  • Ensure all employees understand what to do in an emergency, including leaving the building and common assembly point.
  • Develop an emergency operation plan to respond to emergencies for your customers.
  • Ensure there is a backup for all data systems, including hardware and databases, to recover day-to-day operations quickly.

How Can Mendham Property Owners Lessen Water Removal Costs?

11/5/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Helps Mendham Businesses Plan For Water Removal and Receive Faster Service

Mendham businesses facing water loss on commercial properties typically deal with incidents of moisture buildup that have accumulated over several days, weeks, or even months. Slow leaks that are not quickly identified and mitigated can create a thriving environment for mold and costly structural damages.

SERVPRO professionals respond to commercial water removal calls in Mendham 24/7, including holidays, to lessen the potential impact of a disaster. This firm also coordinates with local businesses to create an easy-to-implement Emergency READY Profile Plan --ERP--that helps staff and property owners act fast when disaster strikes.

Water Mitigation Strategies for Commercial Property Owners

One of the most damaging aspects of water loss on commercial properties is moisture migration. As water penetrates porous surfaces and travels across nonporous ones, it seeps into wood framing, sheetrock, subfloors, and insulation, where it can continue to spread. Over time, these materials lose structural integrity and can break down without professional mitigation.

SERVPRO restoration technicians can:

  • Remove excess moisture with portable or truck-mounted extractors depending on the scale of the disaster
  • Dry surfaces with powerful air movement and dehumidification equipment
  • Safely sanitize surfaces with OSHA-approved biocides
  • Remove unsalvageable materials and debris caused by water damage
  • Implement structural repairs and replace materials like drywall, insulation, and carpeting

SERVPRO’s experience restoring water-damaged commercial properties, from restaurants and offices to multi-family residential units and warehouses, ensures that business owners receive cleanup performed per restoration industry standards and local sanitation codes.

How Can Randolph Business Owners Save on Ceiling Water Damage Restoration?

water leaking through the ceiling tiles in a room Ceiling leaks are often the result of floor leaks on a different level of a building. Contact SERVPRO to evaluate the situation and help you.

SERVPRO Provides Randolph Facilities with Rapid-Response Water Damage Restoration

Floor leaks in the upper floors of a commercial space can quickly turn into ceiling and wall leaks that damage lower floors. This can be especially challenging to tackle in a commercial facility, which requires specialized care to ensure that Randolph sanitation regulations are observed throughout the water damage cleanup process.

Randolph entrepreneurs seeking water damage restoration can expect emergency-response services from SERVPRO. Technicians are highly trained in every step of the commercial mitigation process, from initial facility inspection to moisture extraction to structural drying. SERVPRO also performs necessary structural repairs after cleanup.

Structural Drying for Ceiling Tiles and Sheetrock

Ceiling tiles are typically more cost-effective to replace than repair. However, sheetrock can typically be repaired after drying with air movement and dehumidification equipment. Unlike walls, which usually require air movers to be positioned at 45-degree angles during drying, ceilings require a different setup.

  • SERVPRO techs can cut out waterlogged sheetrock or remove unsalvageable tiles before extraction and drying begins
  • Technicians can also use thermal imaging cameras, sensors, and meters to evaluate moisture levels in the ceiling cavity before drying
  • Holes in the ceiling allow air movers to circulate air throughout the cavity between the ceiling and upper subfloor
  • Air movers must be at 90-degree angles to force air upward into ceilings
  • Dehumidifiers typically use low-grain refrigerant coils or desiccants to isolate moisture for disposal in an approved treated sewer

Business owners who need “Like it never even happened,” mitigation can contact SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County by calling (973) 895-5000.

We Help You Get Back To Business In Mendham After You Face Mold Damage

6/26/2021 (Permalink)

ceiling tiles removed from a building Mold damage can get out of control quick. If there is a possibility of damage in your business call SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County for help.

Mold Damage Remediation for your Business

One of the worst mistakes made in treating mold damage is treating visible mold with DIY treatments. Mold requires professional mitigation.

When SERVPRO technicians remediate mold damage in Mendham, they know that mold growth is a symptom of a more significant issue. Upon arrival at the business, the techs scope the property to discover the cause for the elevated moisture levels supporting the mold growth.

Cross-Contamination is a Concern

Until the addressing of the reasons for the mold infestation, reestablishment of mold colonies is a possibility. To inhibit the spread of spores, technicians put up barriers and contain the worksite.

Humidity Levels are Crucial in Halting Mold Growth

Mold cannot exist when ambient humidity levels are below 50%. SERVPRO technicians take air quality measurements before, during, and after the drying process to ensure standards maintained are below ideal conditions for spore germination and growth.

Controlled Demolition or Other Abatement?

There are different methods for the mold damage removal of dried mold colonies. Technicians choose the cleaning process depending on the surface. Dried infestations sometimes require removal by hand with gentle scraping and using a hand vacuum. Other standard procedures include soda blasting, where a soda bicarbonate mixture works as a light abrasive to remove dried mold colonies cleanly.

Repairs and Reconstruction

SERVPRO carries a general contractor license #13VH06013000 and helps the business owner with any needed repairs or reconstruction. Sheetrock compromised by mold requires cutting away and removal, and there are often ventilation issues or unseen leaks requiring repair to stop the cycle of mold. After scoping the property to find the cause of the mold damage, technicians provide property owners with a list of needed repairs and any necessary reconstruction to restore the business to its pre-mold condition.

Proactive Treatments for Mold

After the completion of mold remediation efforts, technicians clean surfaces with antimicrobial solutions. In cases where the removal of mold colonies occurred, those areas receive treatment with antimicrobial sealers to inhibit any regrowth.

SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County at (973) 895-5000 is ready to address and remediate mold damage. Our technicians are available 24/7 to repair the damage done and make it "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO Can Provide Your Randolph Restaurant Prompt Mold Removal Services Around the Clock

Randolph, New Jersey, is a relatively small township located in the center of Morris County in the northern part of the state. This quaint town has a population of around 24,000 people, but that number is growing. The city is the third biggest in the county, and it is about 21 square miles in size.

The town is considered one of the country’s best booming suburbs. And, it was recently rated as one of the best places to live in New Jersey. The town has a history of being a well-known vacation spot and is famous for its fresh air, ponds, lakes, and forested areas.

The earliest known inhabitants of the region were Native Americans from the Lenni Lenape tribe. The first people of European descent to settle in the area were Quakers. One prominent figure, Hartshorne Fitz-Randolph, purchased 1,000 acres in the 1750s, and the town was eventually named after him when he got it incorporated in 1806.

The town’s well-known historical landmarks are the Bryant distillery known for its “applejack,” founded in 1869, and its 1924 Millbrook School that is now renovated and used for offices. The town is the home to the Museum of Old Randolph that works towards preserving the region’s history. A street going through town, Gristmill Road is on the National Register of Historic Places list.

Plenty of Parks in Town

Randolph has been known as a popular vacation spot in New Jersey for quite some time due to the tranquil outdoors scene it has to offer. The town has several parks, some with ponds, lakes, and scenic wooded areas.

The town’s most popular parks include:

  • The Brundage Park Recreation Complex: This park’s facilities include lighted basketball courts, tennis courts, softball fields, a soccer field, a pond used for fishing and ice skating, and four paved miles of hiking and walking trails.
  • Freedom Park: This park spans over 170 acres and is equipped with baseball/softball fields, a football field, a lacrosse field, and a sand volleyball court.
  • Randolph Park: The facilities at this 40+ acre park include a beach, a beach house with changing rooms, and docks with a lap swimming area.
  • Heistein Park: This beautiful place has a pond for fishing, a concession stand multiple soccer and softball fields.
  • Stonybrook Park: This 30-acre park is used as a day camp during the summer, and it hosts a swimming pool and a recreational lot.
  • Kiwanis Park: This park is a bit smaller at just under two acres, but it has a playground and a picnic area.
  • Rosenfarb Park: The facilities here include a picnic area and a half basketball court.
  • Hidden Valley Park: Here, people can find a pond, rolling hills, and walking trails, including the fact that the town’s main hiking and biking trail runs through it.
  • Cohen Farm Park: This 111-acre plot of land is undeveloped, and it has the township’s man 16-mile trail running through it.

Randolph’s Exquisite Trail System

One of the things this small city is known for is its gorgeous trail system that runs through the town. The 16-mile paved trails lead both bikers and hikers through the beautiful wilderness in the city. The vast trail system includes the following:

  • The path gives visitors a chance to traverse through five of the city’s most well-known parks.
  • Hikers and bikers traveling on the trail system get the opportunity to explore over 2,000 acres of wilderness.
  • The trails also give adventurers a chance to check out the Clyde Potts Reservoir Watershed.
  • There are multiple trailheads around the town with parking lots and some in city parks.
  • The trails not only connect several city parks, but they also connect neighborhoods and schools.

The Region Has a Rather Moderate Climate

For being on the east coast, Morris County overall has a pretty pleasant climate. The only problem is that it does get pretty cold in the wintertime. But, in the summer, the temperatures do not get unbearably too hot.

Between May and September, the temperature stays pleasantly between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. However, during December, January, and February, the lows range from the low 20s to the high teens. The region does experience quite a bit of precipitation as they receive between four and five inches on average per month with a yearly average of over 50 inches.

SERVPRO Can Help with Mold Damage and Restoration 

With all of the precipitation the southwestern region of Morris County receives, likely, moisture can eventually find its way into your restaurant building, requiring you to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. Water can make its way into your eatery through a roof leak, old window or door seals, or because of elevated indoor humidity levels. Once H2O finds its way into your restaurant’s structure, it can cause several problems, including being the source of mold growth.

Fungi only need moisture, the ideal temperature between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, an organic food source, and 72 to 48 hours to grow and develop. The following items found inside your restaurant could become food sources for mold:

  • Wooden Items: The chairs and tables inside your dining room can become a source of mold growth if they retain water for more than 48 hours.
  • Drywall: If any of your walls contain sheetrock, then the paper backing could become a source for a fungus to develop.
  • Paper Products: The dry storage area inside your restaurant is usually the home to all of your paper products, including your paper towels and napkins. Most restaurants also store many of their foods and other products in boxes that could become a source for fungi.
  • Food Products: The food you are selling itself can become a source for mold if it gets too wet or elevated humidity levels. A fungus that starts growing on a food item could spread to other areas of your restaurant’s structure.
  • Dust and Other Debris: Any food crumbs on the floor of your kitchen or dining room, dust, and other loose debris can also cause mold to grow if moisture enters your building.

SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County can assist you 24/7 if you ever find that mold is a problem inside your business. Any time moisture enters your structure, call us at (973) 895-5000.

Randolph Business Owners Can Call SERVPRO for Quick, Skillful Restoration

Why Is SERVPRO The Better Choice?

No matter how small or large the damage, SERVPRO can restore and repair Randolph businesses. For a small, clothing boutique, we send in a team of Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRTs) tailored for the operation. For a factory or warehouse fire, we make use of our Large Loss Recovery Team to take on the worst when it comes to industrial fires.

Where Do the Teams Begin?

For Commercial fire damage restoration in Randolph, everything starts with a thorough inspection. It allows us to move quickly into cleaning out debris from the fire and begin the process needed to restore area businesses. Here are some of the key steps we take:

  • Initial Services – Teams cover or block openings into the business with plywood or plastic and canvas sheets to prevent further damage from the elements and reduces loss from vandalism and looting. 
  • Scope – Team leaders determine what tasks are needed, to include the tools, cleaning agents, and labor costs to complete each task. 
  • Set-Up – After getting approval from the owner, teams set up the equipment needed to clear the air and clean affected surfaces. This step is also where we begin demolition of the property too damaged for restoration.

Is That Everything SERVPRO Does for My Business?

No, there are other steps in the process to ensure the owner stays informed throughout each task. There are other actions our teams take as well, but they depend on factors such as what burned in the fire, and if the structure needs repair before any other action can be safely taken. Our goal is to provide not just a clean environment, but also a safe one, ready for employees and customers again. Our goal is to always return your business to normal operations as soon as possible, "Like it never even happened."

To begin restoration of your business here or in Mendham, SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County is here for you. Call us today at (973) 895-5000 to schedule a service visit.

What is the Difference Between Getting Water Cleanup Done By My Regular Randolph Janitorial Crew and a Professional Restoration Service?

7/24/2020 (Permalink)

A large room with windows with water on the floor, and falling into a trashcan. SERVPRO has what your commercial water damage needs in Randolph, call us today.

SERVPRO Has The Training and Experienced Skills You Need For Your Randolph Water Damage.

While your regular janitorial service might do a great job keeping your property clean, they may not have the professional equipment needed to successfully locate and extract the water wherever it migrated within the structure. When a commercial water loss happens in your Randolph retail business, most property owners want four main things to occur:  

  • Fast cleanup  
  • Save as much stock as possible  
  • No residual odors left behind
  • Lessen the time needed to close

Do I Have to Wait Until the Next Business Day to Start Commercial Water Damage Cleanup?  

As soon as a commercial water damage situation gets discovered in your Randolph property, it is time to schedule SERVPRO to begin the cleanup. The certified technicians arrive within hours of your initial call and are available 365 days a year around the clock, because the longer an elevated moisture situation remains on the premises, the more potential for a loss occurs. 

Core Differences Between a Great Janitorial Cleanup and Great Restoration Services

When you have water damage affecting your commercial property, bringing in a professional restoration company is crucial because your regular cleaning service does not possess the types of devices and equipment necessary for a successful outcome from water loss such as:   

  • Various types of moisture detection equipment for use on different surface types  
  • Professional water removal units to extract even embedded moisture
  • Drying equipment for different areas of the property
  • Odor control methods that extend beyond scent-covering sprays
  • Proactive mold treatments

After the water removal phase of cleanup, the drying phase of mitigation in your store needs to occur rapidly. SERVPRO technicians scope the property and identify items that may get affected by elevated interior humidity, such as computer equipment, documents, and paperwork and stock stored on-site. In cases where the situation demands removal of the articles to another area, the techs make a note of the precise location of every piece that gets moved, so when the restoration services complete, there is little to no disruption to regular business operations when you are open again for business. 

The Right Type of Drying Equipment Gets the Job Done Faster  

The crew that does regular cleanup for your business may have access to a large number of fans, but these only work to dry the top surfaces. SERVPRO technicians have specific types of drying devices, depending on the area within the commercial property that requires it. In cases where baseboards get removed, but the walls remain intact, the Injecti-Dry system is an ideal choice as it forces warm, dry air into small spaces. When flooring or subfloor gets affected by water loss, drying mats assist in the removal of moisture. The most common equipment used by the techs is their fleet of air movers. This type of machinery is not a fan; it blows air at a high velocity and causes a reaction that forces embedded moisture to the surface where dehumidification units capture and port it away. These professional-grade devices for drying a structure and contents is one of the biggest reasons for outsourcing the cleanup of your property. 

Water has its own musty odor calling-card that gets left behind. Treating with cover-up treatments is not a solution. The techs bring state of the art treatments such as thermal fogging to ensure that any remaining residual odors get eradicated and not merely covered up. 

Clear Communication During and After the Process  

A water loss event that halts operations can feel overwhelming. One thing you do not want to have to deal with is wondering what exactly happened during the cleanup of your building. SERVPRO technicians document and communicate with both property owners and adjusters to ensure nothing gets disposed of or moved without approval, and this further ensures that actions taken during the restoration process are within the scope of coverage. Hence, there are no surprise charges that occur.

How Fast Can Repairs Happen After Water Loss Cleanup?   

It is not unusual for sheetrock or flooring to have damage from a water loss. While SERVPRO techs have a vast array of extraction and drying equipment and cleaning solutions, sometimes building materials cannot get restored, and a certain amount of controlled demolition to remove these loss items is a standard part of the cleanup process. Once the techs finish the restoration services, they can move directly into performing any needed repairs or even large-scale reconstruction as they hold a general contractor license #13VH06013000. 

SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County at (973) 895-5000 for fast and reliable commercial water damage cleanup and restoration. The certified techs are available 24/7 to make the loss to your property "Like it never even happened."

How Can I Protect My Randolph Business from Potential Water Leaks?

6/3/2020 (Permalink)

Exposed pipes in a ceiling. Water damage to your Randolph business can be hard to deal with, let SERVPRO assist you today.

As a Randolph Business Owner, There are Several Things You Can Do to Prevent Water Leaks. 

Owning a business in Randolph comes with its particular concerns and stresses.  One of the biggest of these is the ever-present threat of water leaks that could threaten your valuable inventory and continuing operations.  Luckily, there are some ways to effectively guard against this potentially catastrophic danger.  These preventative measures are relatively simple ways of avoiding water-related damage and the need for water removal services.      

What are Some Causes of Commercial Water Leaks?

Commercial water removal services in Randolph, like SERVPRO, have encountered leaks arising from numerous different sources.  These sources have ranged from the obvious to the hidden, and they include defective pipes, structural problems, malfunctioning commercial appliances, and compromised containers.  Some specific examples of where water leaks often originate are:

  • Water pipes that have burst because of freezing temperatures
  • Roof leaks resulting from snow accumulations, excessive rainfalls, and normal long-term wear and tear
  • Clogged roof drainage systems that fail to draw water away from your commercial structure
  • Appliances that are malfunctioning like a hotel’s washing machines or a restaurant’s dishwashers
  • Deteriorated water tanks and containers

Fortunately, many of these problems can be prevented merely through routine inspections and proper maintenance.

What are Some Ways I Can Prevent Destructive Water Issues at My Commercial Site? 

There are several preventative measures SERVPRO suggests business owners take to lower their risk of water damage.  The following actions significantly reduce your chances of developing a water leak:

  • Periodically having your pipes inspected and repaired by a service like SERVPRO
  • Leaving your faucets on slightly when temperatures drop below freezing
  • Quickly having large snow accumulations removed from your roof and routinely having it evaluated for leaks
  • Ensuring that your roof drainage systems are in good working order

While these precautionary steps can often save you from needing a water extraction, there are times when it is impossible to avoid a water-related catastrophe.

Whenever water leaks and related issues impact your commercial site, call SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County at (973) 895-5000 for assistance.

Removing Commercial Water Damage from a Randolph Diner

2/11/2020 (Permalink)

Fire Sprinkler No matter when you make the call, we have technicians who can assist you.

Sprinklers Lead To Water Damage After a Fire In Randolph Diner

Sprinklers are a must-have in any commercial facility, particularly in restaurants, where cooking fires can quickly get out of hand without fast action. Quick-response sprinklers can release plenty of water for putting out fires before they can expand, as much as 8 to 24 gallons of water per minute. However, after breathing a sigh of relief when a fire is put out, business owners and staff may be wondering how to adequately dry so much water before it can cause damage to the building. 

Whether your sprinklers have put out a recent fire or corrosion has caused parts to activate accidentally, SERVPRO technicians are prepared to remove commercial water damage from your Randolph eatery quickly. These IICRC-certified professionals use cutting-edge technologies, such as thermo hygrometers and infrared cameras, to evaluate the extent of damage and formulate a plan to remove it effectively. No matter when a disaster occurs in your business, SERVPRO is ready to respond to your call so you can get back to business as soon as possible.  

What Sets Off Sprinklers Besides Fires?

  • Overheating- If your sprinklers are located near heaters, skylights, or light sources can cause sprinklers to discharge accidentally. This is because sprinklers typically activate at temperatures above 155 to 165 degrees. Consider installing some high-temperature-rated sprinklers for heat-prone areas of your restaurant. 
  • Freezing- This can happen because sprinkler systems typically operate on a wet pipe system, and, when frozen, pressure from the ice can break fittings and open valve caps. After thawing, water can discharge. 
  • Corrosion- Whether the sprinklers are old or installed in environments prone to corrosion, this can weaken parts of the sprinkler and release water. Regular inspections and maintenance can prevent these types of sprinkler failures. 
  • Damage- Whether from installation or repairs, even small amounts of damage can affect the sprinkler's operating mechanism. Make sure to have a certified professional install and inspect your sprinklers to prevent mechanical damage. 

How SERVPRO Removes Water Damage

Even brief exposure to high amounts of moisture can weaken carpeting and pad as much as 50%. SERVPRO technicians can use rovers to suck moisture out of carpet and tent it to help it dry from underneath. Furniture and fixtures are thoroughly cleaned with EPA-registered antimicrobials. These pros also implement extraction wands to remove as much moisture as possible to ensure more effective drying with centrifugal air movers and low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers. 

SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County helps businesses by making any disaster look, "Like it never even happened." You can call (973) 895-5000 for cleanup 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Containment and Remediation for Your Mendham Property

mold growing on ceiling You can reach our remediation specialists 24/7 by calling (973) 895-5000.

Containment and Remediation for Your Mendham Hotel

Guests are rarely forthcoming with the damage they can cause to rooms in your Mendham hotel, primarily because they do not want to get charged for whatever repairs and restoration might cost. Their silence in this matter, however, can often lead to water loss situations going unnoticed by the cleaning professionals on your staff as they hurry to prepare the room for another guest. Prolonged moisture and persistent leaks can lead to mold growth in the climate-controlled room.

As you might hope that you can identify these threats before a guest does, mold damage in a Mendham hotel must get addressed as promptly as possible. The first step is to prevent any further activity in this room until the appropriate professionals on our SERVPRO team can arrive and begin scoping out the full measure of these effects. We have sophisticated moisture detection tools that can identify moisture that feeds mold organisms, and might also indicate the migration of the organisms into structural cavities. We thoroughly inspect all areas that could have become affected by the spreading mold colony.

Containment is a vital process for remediation to successfully begin. Leaving active spores traveling throughout the immediate area can welcome situations like cross-contamination, where colonies can develop in multiple areas of your hotel simultaneously. Our containment practices not only provide a drying zone and regulated area for colony removal to take place but also a designated decontamination area to prevent the spread of these organisms beyond this point.

Depending on how long mold colonization developed before discovery, certain affected materials might no longer be salvageable. We have remediation practices like sanding and soda blasting for structurally sound materials hosting colonies, but other areas might require removal and replacement by our licensed general contractors.

Your reputation is everything in the hospitality industry, and so taking care of mold threats as they get discovered is vital to your business model. Let our SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County team show you that We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. You can reach our remediation specialists 24/7 by calling (973) 895-5000.
