Commercial First Response When Commercial Properties are Under Struggle commercial restoration by SERVPRO

If you have a Commercial Property, a Must Do! it’s having a relationship with a reliable company that offers commercial restoration services, so loses and damage don’t take you by surprise; nor put you and your business under a highly stressful and costly situation.

You may ask yourself, what type of “damage” can affect commercial buildings? 

  • Water damage: water damage can be caused by burst pipes, floods, rain, or a number of other things. In any case, this can then result in contaminated water affecting surfaces and furniture, in mold growing and in items being eroded. Electricity and water damage are particularly volatile when combined.
  • Storm and wind damage: Damage caused by strong winds and heavy rain which can remove roof tiles, break windows and more.
  • Mold: is highly unhygienic as well as being unappealing to look at. Mold spreads quickly around properties as air-borne spores and remediation is very important to prevent it from getting out of hand.
  • Fire damage: can come from a cigarette that isn’t properly put out, from a gas stove or from lightning. In any case, this can then cause severe destruction to your property which requires cleaning and restoration services.

Knowing a good commercial restoration company is a good way to ensure you will be able to start repairing and restoring your property as soon as possible and to get back to work as soon as possible. Try to find ways to make your business more resilient. Consider worst case scenarios and come up with ways to continue generating revenue.

In case of any water damage, mold propagation, unexpected fire, a broken window that can leave your commercial business vulnerable to theft and vandalism, you should be prepared and have handy the contact information for your  commercial restoration service provider so you can contact them promptly and they will  be able to address any difficulties that may arise.

You can also follow these important guidelines and tips that will help you with first responds issues: 

  1. Until an inspector deems the property safe to enter. Keep away from downed power lines; report them to the utility company. Do not turn on the gas or electric until the utility company determines it is safe to use. Evacuate the building if you smell fumes or gas and notify the utility company.
  2. Report the damage to your insurance company immediately; most companies have a toll-free call center if you can’t reach your agent. Have your policy ready for contractors so they understand your coverage.
  3. If you rent or lease the building, notify your landlord.
  4. Do not discard anything until a full inventory is performed, or keep a list of anything you do discard. Keep receipts for any expenses you incur in protecting the property. Receipts are essential for proving to the insurance company what money you have spent related to the loss, as well as for claiming the loss on your income taxes. 
  5. Remove as much smoke or moisture from the building by running fans and dehumidifiers. Whenever possible, keep the indoor temperature below 70 degrees to prevent microbial growth.
  6. Remove wet carpet from floors to prevent buckling and mold growth. Allow them to dry thoroughly. Place scraps of hardwood under objects on the floor to prevent mold growth and staining. Foil or plastic can also be placed under furniture legs to prevent staining.
  7. Extract as much water as possible from the premises with a wet/dry vac.
  8. Board up building openings to discourage trespassers. Hiring a professional board up company ensures intruders are less likely to gain access to the building. Besides stealing items from the building, someone entering the building could get hurt, and you may be legally responsible for their injuries.
  9. Do not operate wet appliances until a professional has examined them and deemed them safe for use. Contact your local police departments to let them know the site will be unoccupied.
  10. If a contractor removes mold from your building, make sure they inspect the home and verify all mold is removed. Places to check for mold include all areas near the mold growth, behind wallpaper, under carpeting and other areas where water can seep including subfloors and wall cavities.
