Why Kennesaw Restaurants Are More Susceptible to Water Damage than Other Businesses

6/26/2018 (Permalink)

Call the pros at SERVPRO Marietta West! Performing emergency water restoration services for all of Kennesaw and Marietta sense 2005!

Restaurants typically have the highest water consumption of any class of business, leading not only to increased bills but also greater risk of water damage.

Kennesaw restaurants experience small-scale water damage on a much more frequent basis than other local companies, causing minor but still troublesome headaches for the unprepared. While SERVPRO can help with mitigation and restoration services to keep the real impact on your business to a minimum, you should be prepared for the most common issues you may find yourself facing. 
 
Clogged Drains 
Whether it is in the restroom or the kitchen, clogged pipes and drains have the potential to cause a lot of water damage to your Kennesaw restaurant very quickly. While establishments with timed faucets are typically resistant to these disasters, troubles can still arise due to carelessness or malfunction. Overflowing sinks and drains spill high volumes of water on the floor, causing permanent damage to flooring materials if not properly drained or cleaned up. Should this issue arise, be sure to shut the water off quickly to prevent further harm. 
 
Burst or Torn Water Lines 
Whether the water line is in the structure or an appliance, rips, and holes in pipes and tubes commonly create uncontrollable disasters. While aging kitchen equipment tends to be at the greatest risk, accidents can happen to even the newest and most premium appliances. Be sure to have sealant on-hand to patch up leaks quickly, and contact SERVPRO or an equipment technician as needed for further fixes. 
 
Flooding 
Serious flooding can happen to restaurants either from natural disasters or major water leaks, such as a busted water main. When this happens, a fast call to SERVPRO is critical, as calling us without delay ensures that we can find and repair the issue in a timely fashion and mitigate as much damage as possible. These cases typically develop into lengthy, more challenging restoration processes, especially if we experience additional delays in the mitigation process. Our ERP, Emergency READY Profile Plan can help prevent, or at least mitigate, fire or water damage from closing your restaurant.
 
SERVPRO of Marietta West helps local businesses to survive and overcome even the worst disasters and damages. To enlist our aid, call us around the clock at (770) 428-5467.

What to Do After a Commercial Fire Disaster in Marietta, GA

5/25/2018 (Permalink)

If your commercial facility is in need of fire restoration call SERVPRO of Marietta West (770) 428-5467

A sudden fire in your business or commercial premises can be shattering and overwhelming. It may set you back in terms of infrastructure and revenues.

However, even in the face of such disaster, all is not lost. It is possible to restore your business premises back to its original state through commercial restoration services.

Commercial restoration is preferred to rebuilding as it saves you time and resources. You won’t have to buy most of your furniture and equipment again. Instead, a simple cleaning and a little restorative work should have them looking new and fresh.

Even when the fire damage is extensive, your property can still be salvaged through commercial restoration.

5 Things to Do After Commercial Fire Damage

What do you do after the fire trucks have left and you’ve ensured the safety of all your employees? What is the roadmap to normalcy?

1. Protect Yourself Before Entering the Building

If the fire department has allowed you to re-enter the building, make sure that you wear a mask to prevent smoke and other hazardous gases from entering your lungs.

It is also recommended to wear gloves to protect your hands from injuries and other dangerous materials.

2. Prevent Further Damage

Even after the fire is put out, damage can still continue. The water left behind by the firefighters can still destroy your furniture and other commercial items as well as promote mold growth.

If possible, remove all undamaged items such as documents, computers, and equipment from the building to a secure place to prevent them from further damage or possible looting.

3. Collect the Damage Information for Your Insurance

Your insurer will ask for a detailed list of inventory for all the damaged commercial items. You should, therefore, take clear photos and videos of the damage and make a list of all the destroyed items and structures. This will help you to get the most out of your insurance coverage while providing proof.

4. Call a Professional Commercial Restoration Expert in Marietta, GA

After a fire disaster, the fastest way to get your business up and running again is hiring a professional restoration company to clean and restore your building.  Here are the steps taken to restore your business premises:

  • Damage assessment: This involves examining the extent of the damage. You will receive a comprehensive report and plan on commercial restoration after the assessment.
  • Elimination of smoke odor: After a fire disaster, your commercial premises will need a breath of fresh air. With the use of top-of-the-line industrial dehumidifiers and the best air movers, restoration experts will completely eliminate the smoke odor.
  • Soot removal: After a fire, the walls and ceilings of your building are likely to be covered in soot. Removing soot from surfaces on your own can be daunting. Restoration experts have the right products and tools for the job. Not a single stain will remain. When soot is properly removed, it will help prevent the growth of mold after the restoration process.
  • Repaint, Repair, and Restore: Finally, the restoration company will repaint the walls and make quick fixes to get your commercial building operational again.

5. Initiate an Arson Investigation

If you don’t know the cause of the fire, it is always recommended to conduct an arson investigation to determine what or who started it. This information can be vital during the insurance claims process.

And if the fire was started by a particular person intentionally or due to negligence, you can press charges and get help in property repair and restoration costs.

Talk to SERVPRO for Quick and Top-Notch Commercial Restoration in Marietta & Kennesaw

Handle Your Marietta Commercial Water Damage with SERVPRO of Marietta West

If you have recently become a victim of commercial water damage in Marietta GA, you may be wondering what you can do to mitigate your damages. There is a critical period in which certain actions must be taken to preserve as much of your property as possible and to decrease any health risks when water damage has occurred in a commercial space. 

Preparing a Space for Water Damage Restoration

Before you enter your commercial space or any flooded building, you will need to make sure the electrical power to the structure is shut off. You should also be aware that during a flooding event, small animals or reptiles tend to seek shelter inside of buildings. Be prepared to deal with the discovery of wild animals in your space.

Protect yourself from entering any flooded building by wearing an organic vapor respirator. You can purchase these at any local paint and building supply stores. You also want to have rubber gloves, protective clothing, and eye protection. The first thing you should do is ventilate the affected areas by opening the windows and placing fans where possible.

Unfortunately, there likely will be items that you need to throw away. Any items that are porous and have absorbed contaminated floodwater cannot be restored. If your commercial space has drywall, mattresses, pillows, box springs, particle board, carpets or carpet pads, these will need to be discarded if they have become saturated. However, there is good news: If you have clothing or household fabrics that can be machine-washed, you may be able to salvage them. Use your washing machine to clean these items with a 10-minute soak at the minimum in hot water with detergent. The soap and normal wash should remove most of the contamination and any staining that is present.

Be aware that your commercial space will need a thorough professional inspection, cleaning and possibly restructuring. Water damaged walls and installations must be removed and repaired, and pockets of saturation should be exposed for drying and sanitizing. Always remember that mold growth could take a few days to appear as it thrives in a moist environment with organic-type materials such as paper or particle board and in temperatures that range between 60 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep good airflow throughout the interior environment, and maintain moderate temperatures to decrease the risk of any mold growth. It is also important that you let your space dry out before any rebuilding occurs.

Protecting Your Marietta Commercial Property From A Fire Loss

10/23/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial fires often are the most devastating real estate that a property owner will have to oversee. In addition to wreaking havoc on your property, fires can force you to relocate temporarily so you can maintain running your business while the restoration process is completed. However, property owners who implement high-quality safety practices can often avoid the devastation and destruction that results from commercial fires. Read the brief outline provided below to learn how you can protect your property:

  • Install Automatic Fire Sprinklers

As many authorities know, having an automatic fire sprinkler on your property can reduce the risk of fire by up to 71%. Additionally, sprinklers can decrease your insurance premium. To keep your sprinkler in excellent condition, be sure that it is not blocked by dirt or paint. Also, be sure to inspect regularly your main control valve so that it is not left off. Finally, be sure that you take the precautions necessary to prevent the pipe from freezing.

  • Conduct Fire Emergency Training

Each of your employees should undergo fire safety training. The training can help prevent your staff members from being victimized. Here are a few subjects that should be covered in the emergency training:

  • Hazard Recognition

Keep all combustible chemicals and materials away from heat-generating and electrical equipment.

  • Prevention

Inspect your power sources regularly and don't overload your extension cords and outlets.

  • Response

Teach your employees how to respond when a fire breaks out. Some subjects that should be covered include how to perform an organized evacuation, operate the fire extinguisher, and set the fire alarm.

Other issues that should be involved in the training include:

  • Breathing Apparatus Training
  • Fire Extinguisher Training
  • Confined Space Entry Training
  • First Aid Training
  • General Staff Emergency Awareness Training
  • Evacuation Exercise

Also, be sure that your employee team officials undergo the following fire emergency response training:

  • Fire Safety Officer Training
  • Fire Safety Adviser Training
  • Chief and Deputy Chief Warden Training
  • Emergency Control Organization Warden Training
  • Spill Response Training
  • Lay Flat Hose Training

SERVPRO of Marietta West are Commercial Drying Specialists

9/20/2017 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO of Marietta West for all of you commercial water drying needs! -(770) 428-5467-

Our SERVPRO Franchise has taken the IICRC Commercial Drying Specialist (CDS) class and has obtained special certifications to complete water mitigation in commercial buildings. Drying out a commercial building can be much different than performing a dry out service for a residential home. The materials a commercial building and residential home is built of can be completely different. The buildings are also used for different purposes.

The CDS course is a five day class and covers commercial, industrial, institutional and complex residential structures. The class teaches students to become skilled at performing damage inspections and evaluations. The class covers workflow management, process administration and technical methods of effective and timely drying of commercial, industrial, institutional and complex residential water damaged structures, systems and furniture.

Commercial drying projects often have additional potential hazards and safety risks than residential water mitigation projects. According to the IICRC, potential hazards include but are not limited to higher voltages, confined spaces, energized machinery, hazardous chemicals, heavy equipment and forklifts. In addition to this information, it is important that state and local laws for safety and contractors are still followed.

If you are in need of having mitigation performed on a commercial or industrial building in the Kennesaw area, make sure you utilize a company that has the knowledge to perform the services properly and effectively.

Do You Have Dirty Ducts?

5/25/2017 (Permalink)

Improve your indoor air quality with duct cleaning?

Did you know your ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality? In most cases, the HVAC system has been operating for some time without much attention. Dirty ducts can circulate odors, contaminants such as mold, and irritating dust throughout your building or home. A routine part of SERVPRO of Marietta West's service is inspecting the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit (HVAC). Keeping the HVAC and ductwork clean can potentially extend the life-span of the equipment by allowing it to operate at peak condition, which may help save you money. Duct cleaning may not always be necessary.

In some circumstances, such as after a fire, smoke, or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the cleanup process. In these cases, SERVPRO of Marietta West can often restore the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage condition.

If you have a fuel-burning furnace, stove, or fireplace, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends they be inspected for proper functioning and be serviced before each heating season to protect against carbon monoxide poisoning.

The SERVPRO® Duct Cleaning System is proven and cost-efficient. Unlike the majority of duct cleaning services, SERVPRO of Marietta West 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 to the 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 the ducting to a 16-gallon container.
  • Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97 percent of the particles in the airstream. 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 Marietta West today. -(770) 428-5467-

Is your property winter ready?

12/16/2016 (Permalink)

Cold weather can have a huge impact on your home or business if you are not properly prepared. Whether it is heavy rain, freezing temperatures, damaging winds, sleet or snow, all can cause serious and costly property damage. While you cannot control the weather, you can take steps to prepare and help take the sting out of winter weather.

To help prevent costly damages due to weather, consider taking the following precautions to protect your property before colder weather hits.

  • Check your business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Weather, such as wind, heavy rain, ice and snow, can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property and potentially cause personal injuries.
  • Roofs, water pipes and gutters should all be inspected to ensure they are in proper order. Gutter downspouts should be directed away from your building. Clear gutters of debris that may have gathered during fall. Leaves and other obstructions can lead to a damming effect, that can lead to roof damage and interior water problems.
  • Inspect property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential.
  • Inspect all handrails, stairwells and entryways to address and correct potential slippery of hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present.
  • Protect water pipes from freezing by simply allowing water to drip when temperatures dip below freezing. If pipes are under a cabinet, leave the cabinet doors open allowing warm inside air to circulate around the pipes. If the building has outdoor faucets, concider shutting water off at the main valve in the basement or crawl space. Once the valve is off, open the outdoor faucet to ensure tit drains, preventing any remaining water from freezing in the pipe.
  • Ask SERVPRO of Marietta West -(770) 428-5467- about completing an Emergency READY Profile (ERP) for your business. The ERP is a no cost assessment to your facility, and provides you with a plan to get back in business fast following a disaster.

When winter weather strikes, call SERVPRO of Marietta West -(770) 428-5467- to strike back.

Quick Workspace Tips:

  • Divide Your Workspace Into Zones: Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions. You may require a workspace for your computer, a library area for our research, a storage area for supplies and a filing area for your archives. This will provide a foundation for a more efficient use of space.
  • Keep Only What You Need At Arm's Length: Boxes of pens, stacks of papers and old coffee cups need to go. Rid your desk of visual clutter by paring down the items on top to the essentials only. Supplies, paperwork and personal items should be kept in the zones you've established for them.
  • Sort Your Catch-All Drawer: Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, like compartments for paperclips and rubber bands. Go through the draw every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn't being used.
  • Eliminate Digital Clutter: Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter. Organize digital files and your e-mail inbox just as you would paper files-with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders. Also, keep the icons on your desktop to a bare minimum, and trade in sticky notes on your monitor for calendar reminders.

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 Rady Plan app to access this information at any time using your smartphone or tablet.

The ERP establishes your local SERVPRO Franchise Professional (SERVPRO of Marietta West - (770) 428-5467) as your disaster mitigation and restoration provider, giving you access to over 45 years experience and a system more then 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 SERVPRO of Marietta West to establish your Emergency READY Profile.
