Why Emergency Ready Plans (ERP) are Vital

1/10/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO emergancy ready plan logo SERVPRO of Manteca and Modesto offers ERPs

As a business owner or even in management, there are so many hats to wear when it comes to what needs to be done day to day. Workplace disastrous events are usually the last thing on one’s mind, as it is not part of the regular day-to-day operations at the workplace. Regardless of the likelihood of a disaster taking place at the worksite, it is imperative to have a plan should one arise. When disasters strike, business operations often must come to a halt. If you have an Emergency Ready Plan (ERP) in place, the likelihood of opening the doors back soon is stronger. 

SERVPRO of Manteca and Modesto offers a free community service that involves visiting commercial properties to complete an Emergency Ready Plan (ERP). ERPs contain detail regarding your property, such as who owns the property and where the emergency shut offs are located. Our staff documents and photographs where electrical, water, and gas shut-off valves are, and where fire sprinkler systems and alarm systems are located as well. Within your ERP will also be important contact details for the owner, SERVPRO, utility companies for the facility, insurance agents for the property, and any managers that may need to be reached when an emergency happens.  

The Emergency Ready Plan is ideal because the owner usually knows where all these important things are; however, when a disaster strikes, the owner may not be available. If all these details are in one spot and everyone is aware where to find the information staff can be more prepared and emergency, mitigation, and restoration services can start faster. This eliminates costly property damages and uncertainty when a disaster strikes. 

Schedule your ERP with SERVPRO of Manteca and Modesto. We will be glad to help.

Once a disaster presents itself, the number one priority is to make sure everyone is safe. Once everyone is safe, the next step is to stop the problem and then remedy the issue. The last thing on a business owner’s mind when a catastrophe takes place is the actual steps to take to fix the problem and most people do not even know who to contact when one does present itself.

Calling a franchised mitigation and restoration company right away is ideal because all your cleaning, mitigation, and restoration tasks can be addressed by just one company. SERVPRO of Manteca and Modesto is a one-stop-shop to mitigation and restoration services and holds many benefits to the business owner and the insurance agent.

 Benefits of Hiring SERVPRO of Manteca and Modesto

  1. Manage Disaster of Any Size

Hiring a company local to the site requiring mitigation and restoration work is useful because a local company will understand the disasters possible for the area and will possess the proper training to handle the situation at hand, no matter what size of the loss. A local franchise will best understand the challenges of the loss, as they will understand the local landscape and challenges that come from the area best.

  1. Quick to Arrive

When an emergency strikes, it can happen day or night. It is imperative to arrive right away. SERVPRO is open 24 hours and 7 days a week to provide restoration or cleaning emergency services. Reaching out to a local franchise is best because not only will they use the right equipment, but they will respond so much quicker.

  1. Preparedness

A local franchise will have the tools you need, and they will be trained for the task at hand. If the franchise did not own enough equipment for your large loss, the corporation can send out more equipment to ensure that the local franchise team takes care of your needs properly. Smaller companies do not possess the luxury of getting the equipment required for a large loss nor do they have the proper training usually.

SERVPRO of Manteca and Modesto’s staff are highly trained mitigation and restoration specialists. SERVPRO franchises require staff to study procedures and practices regularly. Staff must stay up to date on information to handle commercial losses quickly and efficiently.

SERVPRO of Manteca and Modesto can manage your loss no matter what size it is, respond quicker to any disaster, and will have the tools and knowledge needed to get your business in the shape it was before “Like it never even happened.”

Mold Testing for the Home

12/23/2019 (Permalink)

Mold along a wall and cement floor SERVPRO of Manteca and Modesto can inspect, assess and remediate your property for mold.

If a musty smell presents itself in your home the stench could very well be mold. It is vital to test for mold, as it can grow rapidly and can be a costly hazard for your home. Not only is this an issue for basic home upkeep but it can lead to mold allergy and can cause many discomforting symptoms such as wheezing, rashes, watery and itchy eyes, a runny nose, coughing, and more. Besides mold allergy being a nuisance, serious health problems can occur due to mold being in the home. 

To test for mold it is best to hire a professional. A home test kit won’t tell you the location of the mold, the extent of the mold growth, or the type of mold your home possesses. A home testing kit for mold will tell you one thing, it only lets you know that mold is present. 

When a certified professional tests your home for mold you will get the following:

  1. A certified professional will come to assess the situation. This person would have participated in extensive training and will follow the standards set by the IICRC.
  2. Awareness of the extent of the mold damage will be discussed.
  3. You will understand what part of the home needs mold remediation.
  4. The mold will be tested so that you will be aware of what type of mold is in your home.
  5. Mold will be removed from the home and clearance testing will occur once complete.

Save yourself the cost of extensive damage to your home by hiring a professional company that specializes in mold. Do not wait, as mentioned, mold grows quickly.

No need to purchase a home kit to test mold. The less expensive option, in the long run, is to hire the correct individuals to your home right away. SERVPRO of Manteca and Modesto will address your needs with mold remediation and restoration.

Checking Your Roof After a Storm

Clay tile roofing that is damaged Roofing

Check your roof to ensure it does not need repair. If you wait for a leak to present itself, the problem will be worse, damaging more than just your roof but your ceiling, walls, floors, and perhaps belongings inside the home. After heavy rains, hail, or wind checking your roof for any damage can save you money on house repairs.

Different style roofs call for different methods when inspecting your roof. No matter what style start your inspection on the exterior of the house. For safety reasons, do not go on your roof to do this; you can do a quick check at ground level. Take a quick walk around the home, make sure there is no large debris on your roof. After that checks out, use binoculars if you feel the need. If you witness large debris or damage, call a professional to address the issue.

Asphalt-Shingled Roofs

See if you spot loose, cracked, or broken shingles. If there is bubbling and blistering in the shingles, this shows that moisture has traveled to the interior of the shingle. Replace any damaged shingles as soon as you can. Doing so will help you avoid leaks and any further structural damage.

Wood Shingles or Wood Shake Roofs

Wood shingled roofs or wood shake roofs are less common than asphalt shingled roofs. These roof types are often chosen for aesthetics but can be more troublesome should there be damage. Broken, separated, cracked or damage to the shingles or shakes is what you seek. Replace these as soon as possible; if you do not, it can lead to a leak causing extensive damage.

Tile Roofs

Tile roofs are expensive but are more fire-resistant. These roofs provide more protection against heavy winds and last longer. Seek broken or chipped tiles. Do any tiles appear as if they may have separated? Water can seep between tiles if there is separation. If any tiles are separated or flew off, repair them right away.

Flat Roofs

Flat roofs are made using waterproof materials, these are usually found in commercial buildings.  Water puddles, indents, or tears in the seams where water could seep in are all signs damage may be present. Make sure gutters and water drains are working as flat roofs do not have self-draining as they do not incline like other popular roofs.

Metal Roofs

Look for dents in metal roofs. IF the dent has any openings, the roof needs repair. Also, spot any signs of rusting and any separation between metal roof panels.

Once you have looked around the exterior of your property, take a peek at the interior. See if there are any signs of damage.  Are there any leaks or soft spots in the ceiling? Check walls for any water damage. If you spot water damage, contact a professional mitigation company. If water sits, mold and mildew will grow. This can lead to high cost, reach out to your chosen mitigation company at the first sign of water damage.

The first few hours or through the first day, drywall breaks or swells up. Metal surfaces tarnish. Furniture can swell and crack. Dyes from clothing and paper goods bleed and stain surfaces. An odor will appear through the property. Mold and Mildew can occur after 24 – 48 hours, the list goes on and on. Understanding what can happen the first-week water damage occurs can help you understand better why you must act fast.
