Taking Steps to Help Your Business After Leaks

When water damage occurs, immediate action is crucial to minimize the damage and prevent the need for tear-out. SERVPRO® professionals provide mitigation solutions to reduce destruction and restore your business to normal operations as soon as possible.

Water mitigation for downtown Chicago offices and commercial properties can mean a lot of fast action to protect documents and electronics and keep your doors open. We take a variety of activities and actions to mitigate water damage in your office building. These efforts could include:

  • Extraction 
  • Content Relocation 
  • Surface Cleaning 
  • Repairs 
  • Structure Drying 

Standing water can be hazardous for sensitive building materials. Once moisture gets absorbed, these flooring and wall systems can deteriorate. Our team of experts will evaluate the property's condition and take necessary steps to ensure that water extraction is done immediately to prevent permanent damage.

Water Absorption

Water can be absorbed into building materials, damaging flooring and wall systems. Our SERVPRO  IICRC-certified professionals can drill weep holes and encourage air circulation in these structural cavities to ensure proper drying. In addition, our professionals also use advanced moisture detection equipment to locate hidden pockets of water and monitor the drying process to ensure that your property is restored to preloss conditions.

Content Management

Documents, furniture, and other loose contents can be ruined by water exposure. As soon as our professionals arrive, we will relocate at-risk items to safer building areas to prevent further damage.

Our team of experts at SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich can help with the fast response of our Large Loss recovery team to overcome burst pipes, flooding, and other emergencies. We have the expertise and industry knowledge to protect your offices and commercial properties after disasters. Because water mitigation is one of the most necessary aspects of restoration, we arrive fast to preserve areas of your office building from irreparable harm. Call us now at (847) 279-1940.

Choosing the Right Extractor During Commercial Water Damage Repair in Buffalo Grove

SERVPRO Extracts All Types of Water During Commercial Water Remediation in Buffalo Grove

Businesses that experience a water damage incident can return to their regular operations with the help of commercial water damage repair solutions. If the resulting disruptions persist for a long time, the business may make losses and, at the same time, damage its reputation. Fortunately, working with a reliable water damage company can speed up returning everything to normalcy.

Water extraction is essential during commercial water damage restoration in Buffalo Grove. Before we can choose the most appropriate water extraction equipment, our SERVPRO technicians do a site inspection. We have to extract as much water as possible to quickly dry the building.

Some of the factors we consider when choosing the drying equipment include:

  • Power availability
  • The water depth
  • The available space
  • The amount of sediment in the water

Our SERVPRO technicians usually use two types of extraction units - portable or truck-mounted water extractors. A portable extractor offers a lot of flexibility since it is easy to move around in the affected offices during water removal. If the building has electrical power, we use it to power the units; otherwise, we have to use a standby generator to make them operational.

When we use the truck-mounted units, there is no need for a generator or onsite power since the vehicle's fuel is sufficient for them to operate. The trucks have waste tanks where the extracted water is directed before disposal. Compared to portable units, these extractors have a very powerful vacuum, making them better suited for large sites.

Our SERVPRO technicians observe local and IICRC regulations during water damage remediation. For instance, we dispose of all the waste we extract for your property per the set regulations.

SERVPRO Provides Commercial Water Damage Repair to Clients in Buffalo Grove

Service industries in Buffalo Grove experiencing water damage need cleanup, restoration, and repair before they can consider reopening for business. Hotels cannot rent their rooms, stores cannot allow their customers to enter the store, and food outlets must thoroughly clean and disinfect the premises before reopening. Whatever your industry, water leaks requiring significant water cleanup and repairs can significantly impact your revenue and business success.

SERVPRO provides water damage repair and restoration services to our commercial clients in Buffalo Grove. Every water event is different. The impacts on daily business operations occur in many different ways. The common question is the same. How quickly can the water be removed, repairs concluded, and the business returned to normal operations?

Our expert professional team can be onsite within four hours of your call, assessing the situation and deploying the equipment needed to remove the water, dry contents, and structure and help with repairs.

Controlled demolition of porous materials may be required if these items have been structurally compromised. For example, carpets may have delaminated and must be replaced. Other flooring materials can absorb moisture, including the subfloor, which can cause tiles to lift and crack.

Drywall can absorb water, swell and lose structural integrity.

Our IICRC-certified SERVPRO team will assess the damage and prepare a cleanup, repair, and restoration plan.

We review this plan with our client and their insurance adjuster. Our objective is to provide fast and effective services so your business can return to normal operations quickly.

Our services provided by our SERVPRO team are:

Get back in business with help from our trained and experienced water damage remediation teams.

Condensation and melted ice and food products leaked onto the floors creating a chaos of contaminated water damage in your upscale Buffalo Grove organic grocery store.

The response required is beyond your standard housekeeping service, but we offer years of experience in complex cleaning situations and will be up to the task.

The possibility of water saturating the subfloors is evaluated so that secondary or recurring water damage does not occur.

SERVPRO relies upon our experts, the project managers who combine IICRC training with personal experience to achieve positive client results. The unique nature of the mix of water and melted food creates the potential for accelerated microbial growth, threatening your ability to restock and reopen if remediation is delayed.

$50 dollar bill burning from both ends Fire damaged businesses cannot survive long without production, especially retail locations.

Severe Damage Requires Prompt Fire Restoration

Businesses cannot often survive long without production, especially retail locations. It is essential to quickly act when disasters threaten your shop to ensure that the correct emergency services get started as soon as possible to help.

Emergency Procedure After Severe Damage

Fire restoration for Buffalo Grove shops cannot be successful without managing the pressing needs of the structure first. Early restoration and recovery solutions hinge on our emergency response, which includes: 

  • Secure the Building - Through repairs and board-up, we can prevent external influences from making cleanup more challenging.
  • Restore Power - We work to return power to the structure or, at minimum, get lights and equipment running on our generators.
  • Structural Inspection - We assess the impact of the fire on the structure and work to remove compromised or hazardous conditions as soon as possible with controlled demolition.
  • Water Mitigation - We must remove water used for extinguishment with drying tools and extractors. 
  • Protect Wares and Furniture - We relocate items to safer areas and cover equipment or furniture to prevent corrosion damage from soot exposure.

Commercial Flood Damage that Soaks the Inventory in Your Buffalo Grove Warehouse

4/18/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Mitigates Inventory Loss from Flood Damage

Warehouses are typically safe locations that protect their contents from outside elements, theft, and other sources of damage. When goods become damaged, they also become losses, unable to be sold at their intended prices. When the cause of damaging effects comes from within the warehouse, the result can be catastrophic to any sized business. 

Warehouses contain products intended for many different companies waiting to be shipped out, making commercial flood damage in Buffalo Grove a significant problem for every business involved. When products must be re-manufactured to make up for the losses, this can result in downtime with all its related consequences.

SERVPRO can help decrease the effects of broken water lines that have caused flooding by refurbishing any inventory affected adversely. Invading water inside a warehouse is almost always clean at its source (Category 1). However, contact with various substances, with fertilizers in permeable containers and boxed detergents being some of the most harmful, this classification changes to Categories 2 or 3. 

Decontamination must also be part of the remediation process whenever category changes happen. This process prevents possible ill effects later, brought on by contact with the contaminated water. 

In effect, remediation of your flooded warehouse comes about by the following processes: removal of all standing water, followed by extraction and drying out of all surfaces, structures, and contents. Then the application of inhibitors (microbial growth and rust/corrosion) to appropriate surfaces, air scrubbers to remove microbes, pathogens, and other airborne particles, and dehumidifiers to re-establish a proper moisture level deodorization methods, as needed, to fulfill our customer's request. 

The professional technicians at SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich know the importance of your warehouse to the companies and businesses depending on you. Calling us at (847) 279-1940 as soon as you know that flood damage exists can keep inventory losses low, and speed up the process, so we finish faster.

Buffalo Grove Businesses Rely on SERVPRO for Commercial Water Removal

Even if your Buffalo Grove business has an in-house or contracted crew for everyday cleaning needs, dealing with a significant water incursion requires the assistance of our highly skilled and well-equipped crews. Responding to a water loss requires specialized training and specific products and tools. We invest in both the schooling for our employees and commercial-grade water extraction equipment.

Commercial water removal in Buffalo Grove is one of our core services. A business risks its future if water from a plumbing or roof leak, heavy precipitation, appliance breakdown, or other cause does not exit from your property fast.

Fast extraction followed by structural drying forms the foundation of the next chapter of your company’s story and success.

SERVPRO has scalable resources, able to access additional work crews and equipment from our nationwide network if your situation so requires. Within hours of your first call, we send experienced project management to assess your loss and plan for your recovery. Accompanying the assessment team are crews of our employees holding Water Damage Restoration and Applied Structural Drying Technician certification from the IICRC.

Water Removal Services

We have service vehicles that stock high-efficiency pumps and extractors designed to rapidly remove large amounts of water.

Our crews also inspect for any microbial infestation or damage as fungi like molds and mildew often show accelerated growth during the water event. If moisture lingers for more than 24 to 48 hours, mold remediation might need to be added to the cleanup agenda. SERVPRO offers our commercial clients a full spectrum of water and mold remediation, a truly one-stop-shop for all aspects of water removal and secondary damage.

Pack Out Your Buffalo Grove Office for the Most Efficient Water Damage Remediation

Throughout the restoration process, we work closely with your insurance to minimize yours out of pocket expenses.

SERVPRO’s climate-controlled space permits IICRC trained technicians to determine the best strategies to restore the packed-out property.

Be Ready in Buffalo Grove – Never Let Your Business Suffer from Water Damage

Water damage incidents can wreak havoc in your business, even if there is as little as half an inch of standing water present. Even the smallest amount of water travels to drier locations, making it imperative that trained technicians are on the job. The longer that you wait to have the water cleaned up, the more the damage multiplies from overexposure.

If you are a property owner dealing with an emergency from commercial water damage in Buffalo Grove, calling SERVPRO gets you the prompt response you need. Whether you had a pipe that burst overnight or there was another reason for a significant water damage incident, we have the technicians you need to assess the situation and put a plan of action into place for cleanup and restoration.

Water Damage Assessment

After our team arrives, skilled technicians scope out the path of water migration to determine the proper steps to take. The water extraction is either addressed using portable pumps or truck-mounted pumps to pull water up as quickly as possible. This is followed up with other equipment, such as pumps that have weighted extractor heads that help push water from carpeting and padding.

Thorough Inspection

It is crucial that SERVPRO technicians come in and inspect your commercial space room by room to determine the impact of the water damage. Items are removed from the floors or placed on blocks to facilitate efficient drying. Any electronics or appliances in your commercial space must be inspected when exposed to moisture to ensure safety and function before use. We can wipe down and clean the exterior of electronic devices, but we do not open them. If necessary, they can be sent to an electronics specialty company to further check.

Drying Water Damage on a Larger Scale

Our skilled technicians at SERVPRO have been trained extensively in the study of air and moisture, which is known as psychrometry. For any large-scale commercial drying situation, we can formulate precisely how many dehumidifiers and air movers are required to be used in tandem to achieve the proper humidity levels throughout the building. Every room impacted by water damage in your commercial space receives the same intricate setup with carefully planned air quality goals and drying times.

You can trust our technicians at SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich to get the job done for all your commercial water damage and restoration needs. A team will be deployed to your location as quickly as possible after you call us at (847) 279-1940.

SERVPRO Works Hard to Ensure your Lake Zurich Business Can Recover from Fire Losses Quickly.

Lake Zurich is a suburb of Chicago to the North West of the city. The suburb is part of Lakes County, a popular outdoor exploration destination for residents in the nearby metropolitan areas. However, in recent years the quaint suburban life has attracted a bedroom community that takes advantage of both the exquisite surrounding nature and the close proximity to Chicago's metropolitan area. Residents and traders heavily contested recent redevelopments to the local downtown area in 2005. However, the acquisition of these properties has been promised as a potentially game-changing renewal project for the local populace of 18,104 people.

Lake Zurich and Lakes Counties surrounding natural beauty has seen it become a prime spot for an urban getaway. The quaint village of Lake Zurich is close by to the sandy Henry J Paulus Park, which is also equipped with a live entertainment concert stage. Annual festivals in Lake County include the Alpine Fest, which occurs in mid-July and consists of a parade, rides, food trucks, and music. Rock the Block attracts nearly 5,000 people each year, another of Lake Zurich's excellent street festivals.

  • The Lake Zurich Farmers Market takes place between June and September every year on South Rand Street. Nearly forty local vendors host shop days every Friday for three months a year with unique and delicious produce, preserves, crafts, and foods. Live music acts frequently accompany the markets.
  • Sunset Pavillion on Old Rand Road serves up craft brews on a verandah overlooking the enormous Lake Zurich. Some of the drinks menus are from locally-owned businesses, such as the Copper Fiddle Distillery on Route 22, which produces Gins, Rums, and Whiskies.
  • Paulus Park is an ample public space with a beach, children's playground, and seating overlooking the nearby lake. Each year on the fourth of July, a fireworks ceremony takes place to commemorate Independence day.

SERVPRO Can Help you with Fire Restoration in Lake Zurich

The smoke that a property fire produces can bond with surface particles on walls, ceilings, draperies, and fittings. Given that the bonding process occurs due to high temperatures, pressure, and the resulting chemical reactions, these can be tough to dislodge. 

When taking on a fire restoration project in Lake Zurich, it is essential to get the planning phase right. Pre-testing materials using litmus paper to understand pH balance and conducting light cleaning of surfaces can inform a technician of the best procedure for removing stains. Tailoring solutions like this typically leads to shorter restoration times and better results. 

  • Alkaline cleaning products can be effective but may also dull the finish of certain appliances in the home.
  • Industrial extraction units can help to perform hot-water cleaning of carpets and other textiles in the property.
  • Acidic cleaning agents are corrosive but can effectively remove potential rust or stubborn soot and soil from non-porous surfaces. 

Pre-testing is essential to efficient restoration. Contact SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich for fire restoration at (847) 279-1940.

These natural wonders are married up with an excellent shopping district in the Gurnee Mills or Hawthorn Mall that offers bargains, foods, and drinks. Mulled wine and craft brews are served as regular winter warmers while the cocktails are served on the Illinois Beach State Park in the summer. Buffalo Grove provides excellent access to the great outdoors with comfy and cozy holiday apartments and hotels.

  • Craft breweries are a local delight that is well-worth sampling with any visit to the North-West Coast.

My Buffalo Grove Gym Has A Sauna – How Can I Prevent Mold?

8/23/2020 (Permalink)

mold covering the corner of a room When mold damage affects your business, it needs to be taken care of fast. Contact SERVPRO to deal with the remediation process.

Understanding Mold Growth is the Key to Prevention in Your Buffalo Grove Gym

Buffalo Grove is a beautiful town with over 45,000 residents. And like towns and cities all over the US, many of these people enjoy going to the gym. Once the workout is finished, there is nothing like relaxing in a hot sauna, as long as it is mold-free.

Why Are Gyms  & Saunas Susceptible to Mold?

Saunas are a fabulous way to relax and get rid of toxins in your body. Many gyms have either dry or wet saunas as part of the services they offer clients. A sauna is a perfect environment for mold. It has moisture, high humidity, and a food source. Most saunas have wood that mold loves. As a gym owner, you depend on steady clients for a reliable income. Discovering there is mold in either your equipment area, workout rooms, or steam rooms can impact that revenue if you have to shut down for cleaning and commercial mold remediation in Buffalo Grove.

What is Mold?

Mold is a fungus that develops as a multicellular thread-like structure known as hyphae. It reproduces through microscopic spores. These spores are in the air both inside and outside. There are over 1,000 different types of mold in the United States; many of them are harmless. What they all have in common is the need for a food source and moisture. 

Some mold is beneficial. If it grows in the wild, it can break down dead organic material. Penicillin is a form of mold and conventional medicine. But when mold spores enter a sauna that supplies all its needs, it can cause damage to the sauna. Mold can cause health effects as well. SERVPRO technicians are well-trained in understanding commercial mold damage. They have their Applied Microbial Remediation Certification (AMRT).

How to Prevent Mold in Your Sauna

The water spray, steam, and sweat in a sauna create a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. If not cleaned suitably, it can lead to mold damage. You want to keep your gym operating and pass any health inspection codes required. Being proactive in the care of the sauna or steam room is a critical part of that. Here are some things you can to prevent mold infestation:

  •   Ensure proper ventilation – A cross-draft needs to flow steadily to make sure humidity is removed from one session to the next. Installing exhaust fans are suitable for this. Opening windows and doors helps too.
  •   Install a drain – When you put a drain into the floor, excess water flows out of the room. Whenever this happens, the area is easier to dry.
  •   Have towels available – Encourage clients to sit on towels and place them under their feet to absorb moisture.
  •   Use the right cleaner – Clean your sauna regularly with the correct sauna detergent. The right cleaning agent kills mold and bacteria before it takes hold and helps prevent future growth.
  •   Sunshine – if possible, place items like the benches in the sun periodically for thorough drying.

What if I have a Mold Problem?

If you see mold or smell it, you have a mold problem. In a sauna, you can not avoid future moisture, but you can prevent mold from coming back. SERVPRO has professional mold remediation technicians that can remediate the mold while maintaining your sauna’s integrity.  Mold is not something you want to handle on your own. As a commercial property, you may also need to work with an Industrial Hygienist.

Mold Remediation with SERVPRO

Our expert technicians know how crucial it is to keep your gym’s door open. The most important thing to do is to get help fast. The longer the predicament goes unattended, the more it spreads. This means damage to walls, floors, and, eventually, the entire gym. When our mitigation team arrives, they take care of:

  • Containment – We use various containment procedures, so the mold does not spread deeper into the gym. The techniques include negative air chambers, physical barriers, and negative air pressure.
  • Air Filtration – Our professionals use specialized filtration equipment to CAPTURE microscopic mold spores in the air. This involves:
    • Air Scrubbers
    • HEPA Vacuums
    • HEPA Filters
  • Mold-Infested Materials – Dependent upon the amount of mold growth and the surface type, the mold remediation process varies. Antifungal and antimicrobial agents eliminate colonies and prevent the return. Porous material may need to be removed. This can include:
    • Drywall
    • Carpeting
    • Wood
  • Cleaning & Restoration – SERVPRO cleans any restorable items affected by mold. Soda and dry ice blasting can remove mold from surfaces and substrate. Different cleaning and disinfecting products are employed depending on the material involved. Fogging equipment aids the removal of odors. 

This is just an example of what our mold remediation teams do when cleaning your sauna. Contact SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich at (847) 279 – 1940. Let us help your business keep doing business.

What Repairs Are Typical After Water Intrusion into A Commercial Building?

7/6/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Has the Necessary Resources for Water Damage Repair in Your Buffalo Grove Grocery Store 

Water damage can happen at your Buffalo Grove store instantaneously or over a period if small leaks go unnoticed. Regardless of the circumstances that lead to loss, it would help if you repaired the affected areas fast to resume normal operations or prevent long-term problems. 

What Typical Steps Does Water Damage Repair In Buffalo Grove Grocery Stores Involve? 

  • Drying wet materials
  • Removal of wet materials
  • Refinishing surfaces 

The presence of higher moisture levels in your Buffalo Grove store poses a significant risk of worsening the damage already there. Therefore, drying wet materials is a considerable restoration step. Wetness is likely to accumulate on materials such as: 

  • Wooden shelves or racks
  • Drywall or plaster on the walls
  • Concrete floors 

Drying should not be challenging with the right resources since it requires the circulation of dry, warm air around the wet areas. Our SERVPRO technicians help by using equipment such as air movers to improve air circulation within the store. We also use specialized wall ventilation equipment where necessary.  

What type of water damage necessitates refinishing? 

Various issues caused by a water spill might necessitate refinishing. For instance, the water absorbed by wall materials can cause the paint to bubble or chip. Renovation procedures like removal of materials such as wallpaper or drywall and insulation placed over concrete add a refinishing aspect to the repair process. Our SERVPRO technicians help refinish the affected areas by applying fresh coats of paint or replacing the wall coverings we remove. 

Which materials need removal after water damage? 

For a category 1 or 2 water loss at your store, you do not have to worry about removing many materials since contamination is minimal. However, removal might still be necessary for some situations. For instance, sagging ceiling drywall is unsalvageable, necessitating immediate removal. Our technicians inspect your store to determine what else needs removing.

Water damage should not interfere with your business. Call SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich to help repair any issues at your store. You can reach us at (847) 279-1940.

Where Do I Start When There Is Flood Damage In My Buffalo Grove Daycare?

5/23/2020 (Permalink)

room inside view include chairs and table SERVPRO can help you reopen your daycare fast after a flooding incident allowing you to continue your service to the community.

Action from SERVPRO Helps Create Order and Quickens the Restoration of Flood-Damaged Facilities in Buffalo Grove

A flooding incident in Buffalo Grove can shatter the routines you have established at your daycare facility within minutes. Even worse, the incident can disorganize the lives of many working families that rely on the facility to take care of their kids as they conduct their daily routines. Therefore, you must have an action plan for the sake of your clients, staff, and even the kids already used to your services.

What should I do first after flooding?

Although you can expect considerable flood damage after your Buffalo Grove daycare facility is affected, it is hard to tell in advance what to expect since all incidents have some level of uniqueness. Thoroughly evaluating the damage is, therefore, crucial immediately after learning of a flooding situation. Enlisting the assistance of a professional team such as SERVPRO when performing such evaluation helps in many ways, including:

    •    Ensuring the correct evaluation procedures
    •    Identifying potential hazards
    •    Preempting secondary damage

Even though you are the first one on-site, evaluating the loss on your own is a tall order since it requires more than casual observations. For instance, you cannot tell the level of wetness on all materials by merely looking at them. Some forms of damage, such as contamination, might also be challenging to point out. Calling us immediately helps in dealing with these obstacles since we have the skills and equipment to handle the task. For instance, a simple tool such as a luminometer can help us identify whether surfaces are contaminated even when there is no physical soiling.

How do I manage the chaotic site after flooding?

Chaos in a daycare facility may not be a foreign concept. However, the mayhem from a flooding incident outweighs the overturned chairs or spilled food that you deal with daily. Some of the guidelines our technicians follow when performing the restoration tasks help create order.

    •    Setting up a staging area for restoration equipment
    •    Grouping contents as salvageable, unsalvageable and questionable
    •    Using large waste receptacles

We position the staging area close to a bathroom or laundry area where there is access to clean water, and the floor or wall materials favor activities such as mixing cleaning products for cleaning. Having all the equipment in one readily accessible location helps improve turnaround time. Classifying contents and construction materials are salvageable or unsalvageable, and grouping them, helps create order. Moving the unsalvageable ones outside the structure creates more space to perform other restoration processes. We use different waste receptacles, including large trashcans and plastic bags, to hold the waste materials outside the structure to ensure they do not spread.

Are contents safe for kids after exposure to floodwater?

The flooding incident that hits your daycare facility can affect a wide range of contents, including playthings, cots, furniture, utensils, and floor coverings. Since floodwaters are heavily laden with contaminants, you have a reason to worry about the safety of the kids who use the items.

The safety of items after exposure to floodwaters depends on several factors, including their component materials. The advantage is that most of the contents in your facility are easy to decontaminate. Those brightly colored plastic chairs, nap cots, and toys that kids enjoy using have an added advantage in case of flooding since they are non-porous. A thorough wash with professional cleaning agents and disinfectants should remove all traces of contamination, “Like it never even happened.”

Our SERVPRO technicians remove porous materials such as carpets and rugs for disposal since they retain traces of contaminants even after a thorough cleaning. For surfaces such as wood or concrete floors, we treat them twice with biocides to deal with the contamination. We apply the product the first time after arrival at the loss site. We apply the second treatment after finishing regular cleaning procedures.

Apart from contamination, some items can also pose other risks to the kids. Any electronic item within the flooded areas can malfunction if plugged in after the incident. Even items that are not exposed to the floodwater can be damaged through condensation or other forms of moisture accumulation. We ensure that an expert inspects such items and confirms they are safe for use. We can also take steps such as ensuring the items do not cool to the dew point to limit the damage before the specialist checks them.

SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich can help you reopen your daycare fast after a flooding incident allowing you to continue your service to the community. Call us any time at (847) 279-1940.

Discover Secrets For Commercial Water Cleanup in Buffalo Grove

Call on Professionals for Safe Water Cleanup in Your Buffalo Grove Business

Your human resources department, insurers, and customers all appreciate the professional touch for your Buffalo Grove business water loss. The safety issues presented when water intrudes into your commercial building are not merely boxes to tick. Your staff, customers, tenants, and the premises itself all are at heightened risk of injury, health issues, and damage if a detailed safety assessment and plan to manage the hazards are not completed and put in place by experts in the restoration business.

Overview of Safety Issues During Water Damage Restoration

Your multi-use commercial building in Buffalo Grove needs water cleanup after a toilet overflowed all weekend. There was little sewage backup, but the fill lever stuck and supply water spread. Although you shut off the water, thousands of gallons poured through the building from the upper floors to storage and systems in the basement and every level in between. Expected safety concerns include:

  • Slip, trip, and fall
  • Water pooled in confined spaces
  • Electrical hazards
  • Structural hazards
  • Fixture hazards
  • Hazardous materials from structural breakdown (asbestos and lead)
  • Biohazards including infectious waste and molds (increasing risk as hours pass)
  • Chemical contamination from stored supplies

Ways We Mitigate Safety Concerns

SERVPRO has many safety management strategies reliant on our trained workforce’s experience and high-efficiency equipment:

Slip, trip, and fall--we post signs and begin water extraction as soon as practical. If electricity initially is unavailable (see hazards below), our gas-fueled pumps and truck-mounted extractors use onboard power alternatives to avoid delays.

Water pooled in confined spaces--we use submersible pumps and extensions on extractors to minimize placing technicians in dangerously tight areas.

Electrical hazards--we make sure power is shut down until it can operate safely, typically when the bulk of the liquid water evacuates. We drain water from light fixtures and electrical boxes. When we resume using site power, we move power cords out of pathways in work areas--taping or zip tying multiple cords to manage. We always use ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs).

Structural hazards--SERVPRO technicians look for sagging ceilings and bulging walls which obscure collected water. We carefully punch weep holes to release fluid before a collapse.

Fixture hazards--we cover hazards like carpet tack strips.

Hazardous materials from structural breakdown (asbestos and lead)--we alert SERVPRO management if the water loss exposes asbestos or lead-bearing structures to arrange for lawful abatement.

Biohazards including infectious waste and molds--even if the water started as Category 1 or clean, SERVPRO assume that microbes multiply as hours pass. Our crews wear personal protective equipment (PPE) and consider installing air scrubbers in work areas. If technicians observe mold growth, we add mold remediation to the project agenda.

Chemical contamination from stored supplies--another signal to add PPE and containment strategies to the plan.

Our Fast Response Will Save Your Buffalo Grove Bar

Why Buffalo Grove Bar Managers use SERVPRO for Out-of-hours Commercial Flood Damage Repair

Out of hours, flooding caused by faulty appliances in your bar can cause severe damage if left unchecked. Water may quickly migrate from its source into cavities between floors or the seating area. From there, microbial bacteria in the water can easily cause an initial clean water emergency to become a grey or black water issue. We operate out-of-hours flood restoration for commercial properties throughout the year. Our skilled experts are trained in the latest techniques for quickly removing and rapidly drying your business.

Bar managers that discover commercial flood damage in Buffalo Grove can reach out to us on our twenty four hour line. SERVPRO uses local water restoration technicians (WRT) that are available on-call throughout the night. We run this service to allow our commercial centers the best opportunity to get back to a preloss condition without missing out on daytime revenue. Depending on the size of your commercial property, we can dispatch a single technician or a team to your location and begin mitigating losses.

Flooding can cause several secondary issues. These may include loosening of pre-existing dirt or mold growth that can then contaminate the leaking water. Equally, water that migrates to a seating area can cause furniture fabrics to bleed, shrink, or suffer discoloration. To mitigate against further losses, SERVPRO can shut off the water supply, block furniture, or use plastic sheeting and tarpaulins to reduce the risk of further damage. These small steps can pay big dividends by keeping your claim expenses low and protecting your contents from water damage.

Once the immediate damage-causing factors are mitigated, we can set to work reversing the existing damage. Using pumps alongside water extraction units can help to remove the vast majority of standing water. We can then thoroughly clean, disinfect, and treat surfaces with Biocides to prevent mold growth from occurring. By deploying rapid air-movers and dehumidifiers, SERVPRO can effectively dry both contents and structure. You can then re-open for business, “Like it never even happened.”

Our Skilled Mold Damage Professionals Can Save Your Lake Zurich Business

8/20/2019 (Permalink)

Mold damage can be very difficult to remediate. Call the professionals at SERVPRO today for help.

Don’t Panic! Commercial Mold Damage Remediation in Lake Zurich is Just a Call Away

Although no one looks forward to dealing with mold growth at their Lake Zurich business, relax if you have engaged our mold remediation experts. Following the protocols the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed for use in schools and commercial buildings offers a high success rate. It also clarifies that mold spores are always in the environment, but cause concern for the majority of individuals only when they absorb water and begin growth.

Mold Often Signals Its Presence with a Smell

Although it needs moisture, mold damage in Lake Zurich does not need light. Because of this characteristic, a large infestation can hide behind walls or over ceilings. What you may notice is a distinctive musty odor and perhaps some staining on surfaces. Because molds need water pay particular attention to that unpleasant smell if it lingers near a place where you know building materials became wet in the past.

Let the Experts Handle Mold Remediation

If you try to save time, bother, or a few dollars to eradicate mold damage on your own, you are likely to make the situation worse instead of better. DIY remedies often include a diluted bleach solution that does not penetrate deeply enough to kill the organism at the roots. You might notice a short-term lightening of a dark stain, but the water in the bleach solution ironically might be feeding the mold.

Disturbing Mold Colonies Help Them Spread

Without following the EPA protocol, a business owner can unwittingly spread mold by trying to knock off mold colonies. When SERVPRO starts mold remediation, we contain the area with plastic sheeting, sealing the edges of the partition with the action of an air scrubber. Its negative air pressure retains even small particles as we scrape and use soda blasting to remove the colonies, forcing them through HEPA filters that capture debris and then vent the air to the outdoors. Our technicians wear personal protective equipment (PPE) for safety and as another way to prevent tracking debris into unaffected areas.

SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich can help put your mind at ease as we remediate mold damage in your business. Call us at (847) 279-1940 to arrrange a consultation if you suspect mold damage lurks in your business.

How Mold Damage Can Effect Your Lake Zurich Child Care Center

Handle Mold Damage In Your Lake Zurich Child Care Center Confidently When You Partner With SERVPRO’s Expert Remediation Technicians

When you opened a daycare business in Lake Zurich, you committed to providing a safe and secure haven for the little ones. Their parents also need to be sure you have the ability and resources to respond to unexpected challenges that might affect their children. Exposing youngsters to mold infestation within the rooms they play, eat, and sleep causes great concern. We offer professional, EPA-developed procedures to abate the damage caused by microbial overgrowth. 

Mold damage is a “hot button” issue for any Lake Zurich business. Adding worries about how proximity to molds might affect young children elevates the issue to a catastrophe. Although mold spores are always present, when moisture causes the spores to multiply into ever-expanding colonies there is a fear of health effects. Some individuals, including a subset of any child care center’s enrollment, can exhibit sensitivity to molds because of allergies or other susceptibilities. In addition, microbes can damage the structural components and contents of any business. Our technicians master solutions to all these concerns through IICRC training in Applied Microbial Remediation. 

The principles of mold damage abatement include containment, removal, and prevention. SERVPRO technicians achieve containment in a sensitive environment like that of a child care center through the use of physical barriers and negative pressure air-scrubbing technology. We take precautions to prevent the drift of mold spores and debris into unaffected areas of the center, permitting us to continue providing care to your charges even during remediation. 

Within the sealed-off remediation zones SERVPRO technicians, clad in personal protective equipment (PPE), brush and scrape away the mold colonies. We also use innovations like soda blasting to remove all traces of mold damage from even porous structural materials. If we have any question about the contamination of objects the children might contact we dispose of the articles along with the moldy debris.

Final cleanup includes vacuuming with HEPA-filtered equipment and treatment with EPA registered antimicrobials. The SERVPRO team also helps arrange for the elimination of the sources of water or moisture that caused the mold growth initially. If this step is neglected, the mold returns.

Revealing the Lake Zurich Fire Damage Remediation Mystery in Your Store

Fire damage includes the water that was used to put out the fire as well. Contact SERVPRO to discuss remediation services.

Restoring Fire Damages in Your Lake Zurich Clothing Store

Emergencies that occur to your Lake Zurich clothing store can have a dramatic effect not only on the profits that you stand to make but the investment in the stock that you carry as well. Something as potentially catastrophic as a fire can usually get quelled by the fire suppression system throughout your building, but this also comes with its own set of potential problems.

Recovering from fire damages to your Lake Zurich retail store might seem impossible when you get your first look at the scene, but with the right professional assistance, it does not have to remain insurmountable. Our SERVPRO technicians get trained in every facet of fire restoration, giving us a distinct advantage in these situations to know what to do (and when to do it) to preserve the contents of your store and the building that houses it.

One of the troublesome aspects of a fire in your shop is the effect that it has on the garments and fabrics stocked on shelves and hanging from the racks. While deodorization techniques that we employ can remove these smoke damages, it is often more prudent and efficient for your business for our technicians to dry clean them, which effectively removes both the smoke and soot damages that impact these items.

Secondary effects in your shop are also potential hazards to the materials like your flooring and electronics like the registers. When the sprinkler system engaged, it sought to extinguish the fire exclusively. What also happened, is saturation and pooling of water which requires the same immediate attention as the pressing fire damages. Our SERVPRO professionals have the equipment to extract the water and dry out the materials and contents of your building to prevent worsening conditions like mold growth.

While you cannot prepare for the possibility of a fire to your business, you can prepare to call the right team of professional restorers to help you clean up the mess. Our SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich emergency response team is standing by any time that you need us by calling (847) 279-1940.

Recovering Quickly from Apartment Water Damage in Lake Zurich

FROSTY Says Call SERVPRO for Apartment Building Water Removal and Cleanup in the Lake Zurich Area

SERVPRO Assesses and Acts Swiftly to Mitigate Water Damaging Effects to Commercial Buildings

The challenge of dealing with unexpected water incursions in your Lake Zurich apartment complex becomes more intense when more than one unit is affected. The negligence of one tenant can affect the living conditions of many others, and as the owner or building manager, you have legal and financial reasons to turn the tide. If we are on your team, we can help.
Water damage in a Lake Zurich multi-unit residence can impact neighbors near the original problem, including apartments below or to either side. The water can also flow from floor to floor and space to space, damaging common areas and systems serving the entire building. Our technicians are expert at tracing the migration of water from one area of a multiple room and space building to another. We have experience in responding to significant water losses and are a member of the Commercial Large Loss Division.
SERVPRO sees devastating water losses in apartment buildings with some frequency. All it takes if for one renter to forget a filling bathtub when checking the mail in the lobby or the water heater in a different unit to crack and pour out water over a period when the resident is out of town. Hundreds to thousands of gallons of uncontained water can be the result. Our commercial grade pumps and water extractors are the front line defense, operated by our IICRC certified technicians.
When we arrive, the first task is to check that the water is shut off. Then our project manager assesses the extent of the damage. If necessary, we call for extra equipment and operators from the nationwide network of SERVPROs with which we affiliate. We rapidly pump and extract water, taking baseline moisture measurements to help determine drying goals. Apartment buildings have many cavities and recesses where water settles. We use sophisticated infrared technology to scan for this hidden water. Many strategies exist for the release and removal of this water, necessary before structural drying begins.
Water damage progresses until the affected areas dry to average moisture levels. SERVPRO employs air movement, heat, and dehumidification to accelerate evaporation of trapped moisture in structural components. We work fast because excess moisture leads to secondary damage such as mold infestation within 24 to 48 hours. Throughout the process, we keep your insurance carriers in the loop to document the damage and mitigation efforts to prove your claims.
SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich has experience with commercial water damage, and maintains a team of trained technicians and equipment needed to restore your rental units “Like it never even happened.” Call (847) 279-1940 day or night to schedule an immediate assessment and commence restoration.

Commercial Water Removal Technicians In Lake Zurich Discuss Sewage Backups

6/19/2018 (Permalink)

If a sewage line ever gets clogged and backs up inside your coffee shop, the contaminated, "black water" can cause much damage to the building.

Commercial Water Removal Technicians

If a sewage line ever gets clogged and backs up inside your coffee shop in Lake Zurich, the contaminated, "black water" can cause much damage to the building. Since sewer water has the highest level of contamination, specific procedures must get taken to ensure the health of your employees and customers. Blackwater can also cause foul odors to exist inside your home making deodorization a vital step in the restoration process.

During a sewage backup, many procedures get implemented to reduce the number of items the contaminated water ruins. During every commercial water removal job in Lake Zurich, all safety hazards get eliminated from the site before any work begins. The affected areas get blocked off, and danger signs get put up to keep people out of the affected region.

After our IICRC Certified SERVPRO technicians deem the work area safe, they inspect the building and get a scope of the work involved. Our specialists will come up with a plan of attack that will accomplish the project with as little strain on your business as possible. We often take measures that will reduce the number of items replaced saving your business time and money.

When the source of a water damage problem is a sewage line, the project is considered a category three water damage. The first step is to fix the source of the problem. When dealing with sewer lines, a professional plumber usually gets called out to repair the broken pipes.

Once the initial problem is fixed so that no more moisture is entering the building, a containment chamber gets built to reduce the spread of harmful contaminants. The goal of a containment chamber is to prevent the contaminated water and any harmful bacteria from spreading to unaffected regions and causing more issues. An air scrubber then gets attached to help clean harmful bacteria and other substances from the air.

Any debris or silt from the sewage water gets removed with a shovel. Our SERVPRO technicians then test materials in the area and see if they are wet. If porous materials such as carpet wet saturated with black water, they might have to be removed due to contamination.

The final stage of restoring a sewage backup in your coffee shop is deodorization. We always make an extra effort to remove, and sewage type smells from the area before we leave the project. If you ever have a sewer backup in your place of business, call SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich at (847) 279-1940 any day of the week.

Remediating Commercial Water Damage in Lake Zurich

Lake Zurich Water Damage and Soaked Insulation Get Relief with SERVPRO's Help

Soaked Insulation Can Result in Damages to Older Structures

Many small businesses in Lake Zurich convert and operate out of homes where the zoning laws allow for it. For photographers and decorators, this is an opportunity to save money and have a variety of rooms to use as studios and display their expertise. It can also increase their risk for water damage to their structure.
Older homes usually do not have the upgraded pipes and other plumbing needed to prevent commercial water damage in a Lake Zurich business. They leak, and since there is no one in the converted home 24 hours, seven days a week, minor leaks go unnoticed until the problem becomes a major issue. SERVPRO knows that one of the problems, especially in the winter months, is the insulation in the attic and walls becomes compromised. It no longer protects the business owner or the customers and results in higher heating bills.
Cellulose and Rockwool insulation are particularly vulnerable to leaks. They quickly become matted and more compact, leaving space near the top of the walls. The compressed insulation also no longer holds heat in, so it is no more effective than spreading a wet blanket inside the walls or across the attic. Drying out either type of insulation is rarely possible, and it is cheaper to place it.
Fiberglass insulation does not compact as densely as the other two and retains more of its capability to hold in heat. If it is not too wet, there is a chance SERVPRO technicians can dry it out. In most cases, though, we remove it as well.
Regardless of which type, after we remove it, we repair the cause of the leak if it is within our normal scope of services, and check for mold. If our air content meter shows a high level, we spray every exposed wall or area of the attic with an anti-fungal agent. Technicians then dry every exposed surface using dehumidifiers and air movers. Once finished, we can negotiate to replace the insulation and any drywall panels we had to tear down to remove the insulation.
Remediating water damage in businesses requires experience, training, and the right equipment. SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich has almost three decades of experience in putting area businesses back together after a disaster. If you need our services, call us today at (847) 279-1940.
