Learn About Sandbags

6/9/2020 (Permalink)

When faced with flooding, you may be considering the possibility of a sandbag wall to protect your business. It is recommended that taking steps to mitigate damage before it occurs to protect the property and reduce clean up times and costs by several restoration companies. A flood dam is one way to do this. Here is what you need to know about flood dams.

Where to Find Them

Sandbags can be purchased from local hardware stores or landscaping suppliers. During times of severe floods and storms, quantities may be supplied by your local council. You can contact your local council or visit their website for more information.  When there is significant flooding, sandbags may in limited supply and may only be issued State Emergency Service. It is better to be prepared and purchase sandbags prior to or when made aware of a flood event.

How They Work

In most cases flood dams work by directing water flow away from the threatened area. Many people choose sandbags because they are easy to build protective barriers. Dry sand is loaded into the bag, and the bag is then folded and placed to create a wall. When the water reaches the wall, it is absorbed by the sand which then becomes heavier, harder to move, and creates a tighter seal.

Where to Place Them

When creating a sandbag barrier to protect your business it is recommended to construct it in a way that directs the flow of water rather than trying to block it. This will put less force on the wall, and keep the water moving to a safe drainage location. Consider setting the barrier up so that the water flows downhill and away from the property, or into a drainage ditch or open field where it can disperse safely.

Sandbags should also be placed over floor wastes and drains to prevent backflow of grey water entering the building. They can also be used in front of doorways/roller doors.

When to Use Them

One of the best ways to reduce flood damage is to know when to use a flood dam. In most cases you may want to consider the use of sandbags any time you believe flooding may pose a high risk to the property.

When making a sandbag wall or using another flood dam type to protect your company it is important to understand how they work and where to place them to direct water flow. Using these tools properly may help you reduce the amount of damage your business could face in the next big storm.

  • Rethink the dining room. Space out tables and chairs, even your bar stools. Look into putting barriers between booths.
  • Get the word out. Communicate your plans so customers know you are taking proactive measures to provide a safe environment to dine in.
    • Update your websites and social media platforms

Property Owners Pandemic Response Tips

4/27/2020 (Permalink)

Each day brings new information about coronavirus. The spread of COVID-19, a respiratory disease, happens quickly and easily, passing from people who are up to six feet apart from each other. Commercial property owners and apartment building owners in the Romulus and Taylor area, must understand the risks involved if a tenant becomes infected.

Pre-Exposure Steps

Preparation is a key step in minimizing daily operation disruptions. Most experts recommend taking precautionary steps while avoiding spreading panic throughout their properties.

Some examples of steps to take include:

  • Developing a pandemic response plan
  • Posting reminders of best practices, such as washing hands and wearing masks when sick
  • Providing access to soaps and hand sanitizers in common areas
  • Hiring professionals with coronavirus cleanup training to routinely disinfect high traffic areas
  • Most of these are steps that commercial property owners should be taking anyway, so the steps can be implemented without adding to nervousness about coronavirus exposure.

Pandemic Response Plan

Eventually, an employee or tenant may be exposed to or infected by the virus. When this happens, property owners refer to their pandemic response plan. This plan should include how to communicate with property tenants and anyone who may have been exposed. For apartment owners, it is important to understand the rights of tenants and act within federal tenant laws and COVID-19 cleanup guidelines.

Professional Cleanup Response

Once a commercial property has been exposed to the virus, it may be necessary to hire professionals to thoroughly disinfect the property with special attention given to high-traffic areas. This is when SERVPRO® comes in, we are the commercial cleaning the experts!

We are uniquely prepared during this unprecedented time to clean and disinfect your business according to the protocols set forth by the CDC. We have years of experience in dealing with biological contaminants, and we will go beyond the scope of work that regular janitorial staff perform on a daily basis.

Cleanup procedures generally include cleaning of porous and non-porous surfaces, disinfecting of non-porous surfaces, cleaning and disinfecting of equipment, tools, and/or supplies used for cleanup process, and disposal of waste.

The CDC recommends usage of a labeled hospital-grade disinfectant with claims against similar type organisms to COVID-19. SERVPROXIDE™, SERVPRO’s proprietary disinfectant, is a hospital-grade disinfectant that has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses like COVID-19 on hard, non-porous surfaces. Currently there are no disinfectants that have been tested specifically for this particular emerging viral pathogen. However, per the CDC, this product can be used against COVID-19. In addition, SERVPROXIDE™ currently has dozens of EPA-approved claims including Feline coronavirus, Canine coronavirus, Staphylococcus (MRSA), E. coli, Salmonella, Rotavirus, Swine flu (H1N1) and more. Porous materials like carpet, rugs, upholstered items, and draperies that are not water sensitive can also be wet cleaned using SERVPROXIDE™.

Proactive Cleaning Recommendations for Property Owners

4/14/2020 (Permalink)

Beyond the cleaning performed by the provider, property owners must understand that persons infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus and/or COVID-19 that enter their property will potentially infect others and deposit the virus on surfaces.

According to the CDC, the virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. This could be between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) or through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

The CDC has setup a webpage titled Preventing COVID-19 Spread in Communities which addresses homes, childcare and K-12 schools, colleges and universities, work environments, healthcare settings, and large community events and mass gatherings.

For business purposes, the CDC recommends routine environmental cleaning. This should include routinely cleaning all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as workstations, countertops, and doorknobs; and provide disposable wipes so that commonly used surfaces (for example, doorknobs, keyboards, remote controls, desks) can be wiped down by employees before each use. For structures that utilize an internal or external janitorial crews, it is recommended that they follow proper cleaning protocols established by the CDC.

If your property needs disinfecting services, call the cleaning professionals! SERVPRO® of Romulus is ready to help 24/7.  

Essential Areas to Clean in Stores

4/14/2020 (Permalink)

More shoppers visiting the grocery store means more hands touching things. By giving more attention to germ-prone areas, store workers play a significant role in preventing the spread of viruses. 

How do you properly clean sections of a grocery store? Read our store checklist below!

Store Cleaning Checklist

  • Shopping carts: As carts are used throughout the day, constantly wipe down the touch areas of the cart (especially the handles) with disinfectant cleaner. Treat hand baskets the same way. Nightly power washing serves as a proactive measure to sanitize and prepare the carts for use the next day.
  • Checkout aisles: Cashiers (and with the assistance of baggers) should frequently clean the checkout area. The conveyor belt, rails on each side of the belt, customer counter, and the bagging area should be wiped down at pace with the number of customers passing through. 
  • Credit Card Machines: Keep credit card reading machines clean. Cash and plastic cards are known for harboring germs.
  • Restrooms: Public restrooms in a store probably already receive several cleanings per day, but with a recent emphasis on public health, it’s wise to increase the frequency of cleaning. Customer and employee restrooms should be sanitized throughout the day: floors, doors, stall walls/doors, all handles (including paper towel and soap dispensers), sinks, counters, baby changing sections, etc. Once the store is empty for the day, a more comprehensive cleaning should be done from top to bottom. Sanitize everything.
  • Floors: Floors are high-traffic areas, and grocery store floors get even more foot traffic now that restaurant traffic is prohibited beyond carry-out. For more efficient and thorough floor sanitization, consider using an industrial auto-scrubber.
  • Walk-in freezers and refrigerators: Because freezers and refrigeration units house more prepared food these days, it’s a best practice to keep them clean for food safety. Give extra attention to these areas where products are handled by customers. These areas should be routinely cleaned. At the time that works best for your store schedule, remove the items from the refrigerator or freezer and clean the surfaces with no-touch products. This mitigates contamination.

Be aware of places where hands leave behind germs and coughs/sneezes may leave behind pathogens. As always, we are here to help! Our team is available 24/7 to proactively clean businesses. 

Board Up Your Business After a Fire

4/13/2020 (Permalink)

When your business has been opened to the elements by fire or any other disaster, it is important to secure your property. One of the ways we do that is through our board up services.

When firefighters are working to put out a fire, they often break windows and beat holes on roofs. After the flames out, business owners will need board up services to protect the building and items remaining inside.

Why is it important to board up your business after a fire?

  • Vandalism – Children and teenagers can be quite adventurous. Believe it or not, an open business after a fire can draw in a lot of curiously among young people. If someone were to get hurt, their injuries could be a liability for you. Teens might see it as a place for a party or graffiti. Also, people can use this building for criminal activities.
  • Mother Nature – Just because your business has been damaged doesn’t mean that the weather won’t stop from damaging your building even more. By boarding up your building, you can keep out storms, rain and wind until your business is repaired. This can also help you avoid branches and leaves from entering your building.
  • Wildlife – Open windows and gaps in your roof gives the opportunity for rodents and critters to move in. Having an infestation can damage your building even more.
  • Insurance Coverage – Several insurances policies require homeowners to mitigate further property damage after a disaster. If you neglect to secure your property or limit access by people who shouldn’t be there, your insurance might not cover the new damage or injuries.

Protect your commercial building by having SERVPRO® of Romulus professionals board up openings. For more information, please call us at 734-992-3138.

Disaster Preparedness Evaluations for Businesses | SERVPRO® of Romulus

3/19/2020 (Permalink)

office furniture and supplies submerged under water in an office room Taking measures to reduce the time that your business is closed after a disaster is crucial for any company. Let SERVPRO of Romulus be your partner.

If you own your own business, you are likely well aware of how important planning is to your operations—but have you adequately planned for a disaster? Many businesses must shut their doors permanently due to sudden emergencies, but by planning ahead, you can work to protect your investment in advance.

While every possible disaster scenario may feel a bit intimidating to consider, it is not a requirement for preparedness. We recommend focusing on three main sections of disaster preparedness—by understanding your insurance coverage, evacuation plan and restoration process, you can better know where your strengths and weaknesses are for preparations.

Your Commercial Insurance Coverage

After a disaster, many business owners find out too late that their commercial insurance coverage is inadequate against the damages a disaster can lead to. Many commercial policies simply are not large enough to cover disaster damage, and often exclude the costliest aspects like flooding issues and operational interruptions. Do not wait until the aftermath to determine what your insurance will or will not cover.

Your Emergency Plan and Supply Kit

If the issue facing your business is something sudden like a fire or severe weather, you may not be given much time to follow evacuation orders. The process will go much more smoothly if you already have a plan in place, allowing you to get yourself and your staff quickly to safety. Additionally, it is smart to plan for a situation where you are stranded and must wait for help to arrive to your business. Keep a stocked emergency kit handy for these scenarios.

Your Plan for Restoration and Recovery

Limiting the time that your business must remain closed due to a disaster is advised to minimize the negative impacts it has on your business. Picking your restoration company ahead of time is one of the best ways to do this—by calling them right away, you can get your restoration process started and prevent any scheduling delays. You should also be aware of the disaster assistance loan program from the Small Business Administration in case you are eligible.

If your business has been impacted by a disaster, you can contact us 247 for guidance on how to begin the commercial restoration process.

Fire Preparedness Tips for Business Owners | SERVPRO® of Romulus

2/21/2020 (Permalink)

a green exit sign surrounded by flames If your business has experienced a fire, call SERVPRO of Romulus. We provide a full service from mitigation to restoration.

Understanding the risks you face from a business perspective is essential to best operating practices, but it is wise to understand the risks that an emergency such as a fire can cause for your business as well. Workplace fires can be dangerous for everyone involved, but when the workplace is your business, there is another layer of worry present.

The good news is that making fire preparations is not an extensive time commitment and has a big payoff for your business. Implementing these simple tips will help you protect your investment and keep your staff safe, ensuring you can recover quickly if a fire occurs.

Business Owners Should Know These Fire Safety Tips

Follow code guidelines and inspection schedules. Knowing the fire codes for commercial properties should be step No. 1 when evaluating your fire preparedness. Adhering to these codes, following regular inspection schedules and making sure everything is up to standard can go a long way in protecting your business.

Identify your specific risks. Because of all the factors that go into fire risks, every business faces different hazards that should be guarded against. For example, businesses with many flammable chemicals may face different risks from businesses with a plethora of electronics—making it wise to recognize these specific risks and prepare for them as well as you are able.

Create (and practice) a fire evacuation plan. In the event of the fire alarm sounding, making sure your staff stays safe is much simpler when they are already prepared on the protocol. Regular fire evacuation drills with different scenarios and exit maps can keep them prepared for any situation, making sure everyone is calm and confident when it comes time to execute the plan.

Have regular fire safety seminars with staff. Along with escape drills, discussing fire safety tips specific to your workplace can help everyone practice fire safety throughout the workday. Directing staff to fire extinguisher locations and posting fire safety reminders through the office will help everyone stay on the same, safe page.

If your business has experienced a fire, we’re here 247 to respond and begin restoration. Call us today to learn how we can help you.

Commercial Fire Damage

7/13/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial fire damage repair may not be something you think you will ever need for your business, but the unfortunate reality is some businesses will experience a fire damaging event. Fires can be caused by an electrical shortage from overloading an extension cord to a lightning strike. Especially common are cooking accidents in restaurants. As soon as the flames are extinguished by firefighters, you may begin to worry what steps are required to resume business as usual. The best advice is to be prepared for this possible event and have a plan.

The Damage Caused by a Fire 
When you experience commercial fire damage to your business, you may reflect on the mess left behind in the charred ruins of the property. However, the damage you need to contend with will go far beyond the ashes. To repair the property entirely after experiencing a damaging fire, you will need to seek the help of a professional team like SERVPRO. Water may have to be extracted after the firefighters' efforts. The smoke damage may cause more of a problem that the burnt materials from the fire. While a fire may be contained in one area of the building, smoke can fill most or all of the areas, and it can cause significant damage and odors. Our trained Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technicians (FSRT) can resolve these issues. When smoke and water damage are dealt with appropriately, the structure will not show any aftereffects. "Like it never even happened."

A fire loss within your enterprise, whether a retail store, rental apartment building, professional office, or a warehouse, costs you customer goodwill and loss of profitability when business cannot be conducted. We can generate a corporate program called the Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS.) This report will categorize all affected materials, furniture and equipment, stock, electronics, and documents. We suggest what is salvageable, non-salvageable, or questionable. The final decision rests with you and your insurance company as to how we proceed. SERVPRO is a preferred commercial fire damage restoration company to more than 300 insurance companies, federal and municipal entities, and property management companies. We willingly coordinate efforts with your insurance adjuster to efficiently and economically restore your business in the best manner possible.

When to Make the Call

The time to contact SERVPRO of Romulus/Taylor as soon as the fire is out. Our business is to get you back in business! Rely on us, 24/7 for an immediate response.

Tips on Preventing Residential and Commercial Mold Damage

6/19/2018 (Permalink)

Vigilance is key to preventing mold growth. A professional mold remediation company, like SERVPRO, can address mold issues in homes and businesses as well as help property owners. However, if mold growth does occur, SERVPRO should be called immediately to minimize any damage and stop the mold from spreading.

Increase the Heat
One way to prevent Auburn commercial mold from growing is to increase the heat. When the walls on a property are too cold, moisture particles in the air condensate, creating a damp film that leads to mold formation. In the summer, keep the thermostat on a low heat setting, and insulate the walls on the property.

Reduce Steam
Steam is a common cause of residential and commercial mold damage. To reduce steam, homeowners and business owners should:

    •        Do not allow standing water to sit in the sink or a drinking glass.
    •        Install and use an extractor fan in the bathroom to clear the steam after a hot shower or bath.
    •        Put wet clothes outside on a clothesline to dry instead of indoors.
    •        Run the ventilation fan on the range hood to suck up steam from liquids boiling on the stove top.

Maximize the Air Flow
An easy way to keep residential and commercial damage from the mold at bay is to open the windows and let cold air circulate inside the property. Open windows keep surfaces dry and push mold spores outdoors. To further increase the air flow and reduce hidden pockets of air, pull furniture away from walls. If mold is spotted behind furniture or curtains, SERVPRO can help eliminate it.

Other Mold Prevention Tips
There are other ways to prevent commercial damage and residential damage from mold. SERVPRO recommends that business owners and homeowners:

    •        Fix any leaks from dripping pipes and water overflows from eavestroughs.
    •        Keep the roof in good repair, especially if the roof is flat.
    •        Throw away mold damaged items such as books and rotting food.
