National Preparedness Month

National Preparedness Month is the perfect opportunity to share the benefits of having a readiness plan in place with your customers, business and family.

The SERVPRO® Emergency READY Profile® (ERP) will help ensure you and your business are “Ready for whatever happens.”

In the event of an emergency, the SERVPRO® Emergency READY Profile® can help minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action in place for your facility. The ERP is a comprehensive document containing critical information about your business, including emergency contact information, shut-off valve locations and priority areas. The ERP is also accessible online using your computer or tablet; download SERVPRO’s free Ready Plan app to access this information at any time using your smartphone or tablet.

The ERP establishes your SERVPRO® of South East Monroe County as your disaster mitigation and restoration provider, giving you access to over 50 years experience and a System more than 1,700 Franchises strong. Knowing what to do and who to call in advance is key to quick response and timely mitigation. Having a plan in place may help minimize the amount of time your business is inactive and get you back in the building following a disaster.

Preparation is the key to making it through any size disaster, whether it is a small water leak, a large fire or an area flood. The best time to plan for such events is not when the event happens, but well before it happens. No one ever plans on a disaster, but now, you can plan for it.

The ERP is a no-cost assessment; all it requires is a little time, making it a great value that could save a lot of time in the future. Call your local SERVPRO® Franchise Professional to establish your Emergency READY Profile®.

Commercial Flood Damage at a Rochester Retail Store

9/10/2018 (Permalink)

After a disaster strike, the aftermath is what causes the destruction most often. A thunderstorm or tornado can damage a roof, but it is the accompanying water that can ruin a local business.

Flood damage to Rochester commercial properties can be a costly, temporary, problem or it can shut doors permanently. SERVPRO has the expertise and personnel to make sure the latter does not happen. We have a 24-hour response team with the latest equipment in restoration. A rapid response is particularly important for businesses such as furniture stores. The variety of types of wood, cloth, and varnishes mean that more than one method of drying is necessary.
 
The first step is to get the furniture out of the water. Even just an inch can cause the varnish to separate from wood surfaces and color to bleed from covering fabrics, carpets, and drapes. Our technicians use industrial-grade pumps that can remove water from even a large, warehouse-sized, structure in a matter of hours.

Next, all items can be either removed to a dry location or placed up on blocks or pallets to lift them out of water trapped in carpets or flooring. Area rugs, curtains, and drapes can be removed and hung. They can be transferred to our facility if needed. With everything out of the way, the response team uses extractors to pull water out of carpets and flooring.

The drying process must be applied to the structure itself and everything inside. In a large facility, our response team can set up a series of air movers and exhaust fans inside the structure and at exits and entrances. These machines pull the damp air out of the building and replace it with dry air from the outside. For smaller rooms (offices, exclusive showrooms) inside, we place dehumidifiers inside to draw moisture out of the air.

Drying furniture requires a dry atmosphere, but if the varnish has already absorbed water, then an even heat may be needed to help dry it while not causing damage from the heat itself. To end up with a smooth finish, we can use a series of space heaters placed around a group of items with similar woods and coatings. Technicians try to avoid applying direct heat as this can cause bubbles to form underneath the surface.

The drying and restoration process may be time-consuming, but it can help you keep the doors open. Call us today at (585) 641-0040 to get started. SERVPRO of South-East Monroe County is here to help you put your livelihood back together.

Experiencing Commercial Water Damage

9/10/2018 (Permalink)

We know that your main concern is getting your business operations back to normal as soon as possible after any catastrophe, but commercial water damage is much more complex than most problems experienced by businesses today. Categories of water can quickly change from non-hazardous to very dangerous quickly. Water can spread in almost any direction, including up if conditions are right, and remaining flood waters can instantaneously ruin some certain products with even minute amounts.

Commercial water damage presents unique challenges because of the environment involved. From warehouses storing agricultural products to leather processing plants, inventory protection, and worker safety is both important to any business. Different types of water can cause damage, and even the cleanest water, category 1, can turn into the worst, category 3 when contaminants are present. These can happen when clean water is mixed or combined with another source of category 3 water, even if it is not causing any damage by itself (such as sewer water) or when bags of previously dry substances such as fertilizers or pesticides become saturated, and their contents leach into the water.

The damage to your inventory can also rapidly multiply. When products at the bottom of a stack can be a conduit for water by wicking it upwards toward other product that has not been damaged, it's common sense to get those products on top removed to a safer location. We have team members who can provide this service while our technicians work in other areas, protecting your business from increased inventory loss.

Stacked bags of concrete and other dry products that are designed to be mixed with water, oil, or other liquid just prior to use may seem to be in saleable condition until they are examined on their undersides where water has accumulated. These ruined items need to be removed and accounted for on inventory loss sheets. For insurance purposes, all products need to be re-inventoried and noted as to their condition before the conclusion of our restoration work.

After you've made the initial call to us, we can begin the restoration process. Returning your business to normal operations is important, and we understand the complexities involved in keeping your employees safe while protecting your business's bottom line. Call us, SERVPRO of South-East Monroe County at (585) 641-0040 any time, day or night, 365 days a year.

Commercial Duct Cleaning

10/31/2017 (Permalink)

Unlike the majority of duct cleaning services, SERVPRO of South East Monroe County uses a portable ventilation and air duct cleaning system to examine ductwork and make a clean sweep, removing years of dust and grime.

  • The process begins by using patented equipment, including a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts tot he duct's shape and diameter while traveling through the duct, removing debris and filth before vacuuming begins. 
  • Next, a powerful push-pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from ducting to a 16-gallon container.
  • Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97 percent of particles in the air-stream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the indoor environment clean.
  • As an optional process, a sealant or coating product may be sprayed to address odor or microbial concerns.
  • Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.

For more information on duct cleaning, or to schedule an appointment, contact SERVPRO of South East Monroe County Today! (585) 641-0040
