Commercial Water Damage Ventura California Commercial Water Damage Ventura California

Water damage can strike your commercial property at any time and without notice. The effects can be devastating to a business owner who is now faced with having to clean up the water damage and reopen their business as soon as possible.

When it comes to commercial water damage, bigger is always worse. Commercial properties are more susceptible than residential homes due to having more water lines for sprinklers, bathrooms and faucets. Water lines are more susceptible to leaks/breaks and I can be disastrous when it breaks.

The following are things to do when you discover water in your commercial facility:

  1. Safety First

The first step is to make sure the building is safe. Safety hazards from falling ceilings to electrical hazards may be present. If it looks like a ceiling or wall might fall do not enter the room or area. Place warning sign and lock the door if possible. Be careful of water that has come through electrical panels or outlets. It may be best to shut the electricity off.

  1. Stop the Source of Water

If you know where the water is coming from and can turn it off at its source, do it. Larger commercial buildings should have separate valves for each area.

  1. Get the Water Out

It is easiest to remove water in its liquid form but, in large scale damage it’s hard to mitigate as all floors need to be dried out and protected against mold growth. This can involve removing wet materials and contents or drying out and cleaning existing contents to prevent replacement,

CLEANING UP YOUR BUSINESS PREMISES AFTER A FIRE INCIDENT

2/4/2022 (Permalink)

business after fire in ventura Business after fire in Ventura California

It’s hard to imagine the damage and destruction caused by a fire. Even small fires can be devastating. When you find yourself dealing with losses of fire, the mess from fire itself and the damage created when fire was extinguished, as well as the potential irreplaceable contents that might have been affected, it can be overwhelming.

Cleaning up your business premises after a fire incident is important in order to clean debris and residues or restore discolored surfaces. Fire damage cleanup is generally difficult. It is a multi- step, challenging process. However, some factors can mess up with your plans, complicating the process even further.

There are two main things that influence fire damage cleanup in business premises. First is the materials burnt and the second is the level of moisture at the loss site. SERVPRO of Ventura focuses on the burnt materials and moisture levels to help expedite the cleaning process. Materials were classified broadly as natural or synthetic to determine the effects on the cleaning process. Typical synthetic materials include plastics and rubber. They leave wet and smeary residues that require significant cleaning effort, especially through dry cleaning methods.

To remove wet smoke residues from synthetic materials, it requires:

  • Stripping of surfaces and refinishing them
  • Use of industrial cleaning agents
  • Use of specialized cleaning methods such as soda blasting

Moisture can originate from different sources at a fire loss site. In a commercial setting, automatic suppression system such as sprinkler system can release a significant volume of water, leaving a wet ceiling and wet to the floors. Moisture sets soot residues making it difficult to clean them. SERVPRO of Ventura technicians establish various moisture control measure at the fire damage property to improve the cleaning process. They set up dehumidifiers on arrival to minimize humidity level and extract any pooling water minimizing moisture interaction with smoke residues.

RESTORING A WATER DAMAGED GYM FLOOR

11/29/2021 (Permalink)

water damage gym ventura California water damage gym ventura California

Gyms and athletic facilities serve thousands of people every day. When one of these facilities is hit by a flood or natural disaster, the gym must close until appropriate restoration services are complete.

Water can damage the structural integrity and functionality of a hardwood gym floor. A damaged gym can’t offer the same levels of comfort and protection players are used to. Floors becomes distorted and loses its polished.

What Causes Gym Floor Water Damage?

Excessive moisture may seep into wooded courts from a number of common sources. Wet mopping, especially along gaps in the floorboards, allows water to access the undersides of the flooring. High relative humidity levels as well as surface moisture also contribute to water damaged gym floors. Disasters like burst pipes and floods can lead to a damaged gym floor in your sports facility.

When disaster strikes, it’s important to immediately clean up spills and water from your gym floor. A quick fix will prevent water from seeping down in between and destroying your floor entirely.

Why do Gym floors warp after water damage?

When wooden floorboards absorb moisture, the wood both expands and contracts. Cupping and crowning are two potential outcomes of excessive and prolonged moisture penetrating the hardwood court. Once wood undergoes expansion, it will fail to return its original position.

Cupping is when the edges are forced to expand upward. Crowning causes the floor to expand in the center due to imbalance in moisture content.

How can cupping and crowning be fixed?

Dehumidify the area to reduce the moisture content in the wooden floorboards, Place multiple large fans and blowers in the gym, taking care to direct the air toward the water damaged areas. Dehumidification will dry the concrete under the wood but will do little to salvage the wood.

Restoring a water damaged gym floor will depend on the severity of the situation. In some case, if the water damage has only occurred in a small area, you can replace it and sand the floor to ensure uniformity.

SERVPRO of Ventura professionals has years of experience when it comes to water damage restoration. They know what to look for to identify the full extent of the damage. They have proper equipment and knowledge to handle tasks. From water damage to commercial restoration, we have qualified trained professionals who are ready to respond.

  • Save money on insurance premiums
  • Keep everyone safe
  • Compliance with NFPA and local code

How often to Inspect

It is recommended that all mechanical parts be checked quarterly, and any portion that detects, hold or monitors pressure be tested twice a year. Annual inspection is recommended as well, and these includes testing the entire system including alarm system and water flow with pipes.

If your equipment becomes damaged, your sprinkler system will not be triggered or your equipment will fail to extinguish a fire. This can lead to increased property damaged damage of equipment a documents and the worst is injury or death.

Signs you need an inspection

There are a few things must be done before employees can return to their workplace, especially if black water invades your business.

Black water is the term used to describe a type of liquid that presents a risk to the health of humans and animals upon exposure. This type of water harbors bacteria, viruses, chemicals or other debris, that’s why it is important not to allow anyone near the water. But you do not need to wait for the entire process to be complete as long as a few tasks are done ahead of time.

  1. Black Water Clean up

These waters are presumed to contain multiple and potentially harmful contaminant. Black water includes floodwaters containing soil and any sewage waters. All raw sewage is contaminated with microbes including bacteria, molds, fungi and viruses. When you hire a restoration company for flood cleanup, they will usually extract the standing water and then dry the area with special blowers.

  1. Demolition

Structural materials like drywall, flooring and carpeting that are damaged must be taken out. All these items will be replaced at the end of the restoration process.

  1. Disinfection

Items that came into contact with floodwater must be disinfected before it will be safe for your employees to return to work. This could include subfloors, walls, ceilings, baseboards or other materials.

  1. Resume Operation

After disinfection, rebuild process will begin. The building may resemble a construction site during the phase. It is important to check with your restoration company to ensure it is safe for your employees to be onsite. You can use air filtration devices to help ensure a safe working environment once you have approval.

COMMON WINTER HAZARDS FOR BUSINESS

Winter Hazard for Business in Ventura Winter Hazard for Business in Ventura

COMMON WINTER HAZARDS FOR BUSINESS

Extreme cold, snow, ice and freezing rain can all have serious consequences for your employees, your property and your business operations. Water accumulated from melting ice and snow, has the chances of slips and falls for employees and visitors. Staying aware of these risks throughout the season and understanding how to avoid them will help keep your property and employees safe, and keep your business running without interruption. To reduce the chance of accidents, injuries and property damage, here are the most common hazards colder weather brings for businesses, along with the ways to prevent them.

  1. Power Outages

Most cold-season power failures happen when winter storms bring freezing rain, sleet, and high winds, damaging power lines and equipment. Without a backup power source, not only are you impacted, but your business can suffer from dampness, damaging walls, floors and plumbing.

Generators are a key component of business continuity for companies of all sizes. They not only keep business up and running during power outages, but also keep key building systems running so your business doesn’t deal with water damage.

  1. Frozen Pipes

Cold temperatures can cause water pipes to freeze. Freezing in a pipe creates a lot of pressure inside the pipe and can cause the pipe to burst and likely lead to serious flooding, which can cause a lot of damage to a business in very little time.

The best prevention against frozen pipes is to keep them warm enough to stay above the freezing point.

  • Seal openings & insulate pipes
  • Maintain temperature & power in the building
  • Monitor facility systems & detect problems early
  1. Roof Damage & Collapse

Heavy snow can pose a serious risk to roofs and cause some to collapse, creating dangerous conditions. Once the accumulated snow and ice load reaches the “danger zone,” it runs the risk of compromising the roof’s structural integrity, potentially leading to collapse.

When snow buildup occurs, use a roof rake with an extended handle to pull snow of the roof from the safety of the ground. Removing roof snow can also prevent ice dams. Roof snow removal can be dangerous it would be better if you hire a professional snow removal service.

If a winter does leave a mark on your business, we recommend you take action immediately. Call us SERVPRO of Ventura, small or big, we are here to assist you.

Building owners should have a new building's wiring systems inspected by a professional as well. Be sure to keep the circuit breakers up to date, and all electrical on par with current safety codes. Having follow-up preventative checks every few years is a good idea, especially for buildings that have heavy energy users.

DOES HOMEOWNER’S INSURANCE COVER WATER DAMAGE?

4/27/2020 (Permalink)

Water leaking from pipe DOES HOMEOWNER’S INSURANCE COVER WATER DAMAGE? Ventura, California

DOES HOMEOWNER’S INSURANCE COVER WATER DAMAGE?

You already have insurance and you’re paying for it. But did you ever ask yourself if your homeowner’s insurance covers water damage? What’s covered and what’s not in your homeowner’s insurance policy?

Waking up to a flood due to faulty water heater is annoying especially after you realized your floor is damaged. Plumbing and leaking pipes can be a potential disaster, costing homeowners thousands of dollars. Water damage done to your home is covered by a standard homeowner’s insurance policy. However, not all types of water damage are covered. It’s not always easy to figure out when water damage is and isn’t covered by your policy because the distinctions are so fine, but this guide will inform you of the specific situations when your homeowner’s insurance will cover water damage.

When Does Homeowner’s Insurance Cover Water Damage?

Standard home insurance policies require water damage to be sudden and internal, with the requirement that the water has never touched the outside ground. It means that, if water damage occurs suddenly or accidentally from a source inside your home, such as a busted pipe, it will likely be covered by your homeowner’s insurance. If the water comes from outside your home, it will not be covered by your standard policy.

  • Plumbing: Burst pipes, frozen plumbing, faulty plumbing, accidental overflow
  • Water damage from extinguishing a fire
  • A leaking roof (coverage would extend only to the home interior, not the roof itself)
  • An accidental overflow of an appliance or fixture (toilet, washing machine, bathtub)
  • Mold (only when it’s the result of covered water damage)

What types of water damage not covered by homeowner’s insurance?

Water damage is not covered by insurance if the result is not accident or unexpected occurrence. Here are three instances in which your homeowner’s policy will not provide coverage:

  1. Maintenance problems that have not been attended to
  2. Repair or replacement of the actual source of the water damage.
  3. Flooding

Standard policies won’t cover water damage resulting from a flood, you’ll need to purchase additional flood insurance, especially if you are in area prone to flooding.

If your house floods due to a burst pipe, which happened suddenly and accidentally, that would be an exception, your homeowner’s insurance can cover the costs of water damage.

Does homeowner’s insurance cover water damage from rain?

Homeowners insurance covers water damage from rain sometimes, but not always. It all depends on how the damage occurred. For example, if a storm opens a hole in your roof, allowing water to leak in and destroy valuable personal property, your policy typically offers coverage. But when lack of maintenance results in water damage, you won’t be covered.

REASONS TO HAVE A FIRE BLANKET

Fire blanket REASONS TO HAVE A FIRE BLANKET

REASONS TO HAVE A FIRE BLANKET

What is a fire blanket?
A fire blanket is a highly flame-resistant blanket that can be used to extinguish a small fire or to wrap
around a person in case of a fire. Fire blankets are made from 2 layers of woven glass fibre fabric and an
inner layer of fire retardant film. They work by cutting off the oxygen supply to the fire.
They smother small fires by not allowing any oxygen in to fuel the flames. Due to its simplicity, a fire
blanket may be more helpful for someone who is inexperienced with fire extinguishers.
All fires start with a small fire and a fast action could avoid a catastrophe. Thus, here are reasons why
we recommend having a fire blanket.
1. It is an active protection system against fire of easy and fast action.
2. It is effective before any type of fire (Class A, B, C, D, F/K).
3. It is effective to block heat and act as a barrier when escaping a fire; just cover with the fire blanket
and run to a safe place.
4. People whose clothes are firing could be covered with it and stop the flames, saving their life in this
way.
5. It is easy use. It could be used by everyone, including people with limited physical capacities.
6. They are economic and only need to be placed in a visible and easy access place.
7. It is versatile; they could be used in professional sectors as well as domestic use (industrial kitchens,
laboratories, oil centres, domestic kitchens, cars, caravans…)
8. It does not require any maintenance. Just replace it when used.
9. In the case of frying pans or fryers burning, it is the safest system to stop fires caused by oil. Just cover
the frying pan or fryer with a fire blanket and let the fire die.
10. There are more organisations that recommend it as a complement of security systems against fire
including it in their manuals of Security Systems and Risk Prevention basing in Real Decreto 2267/2004,
among others.

SMOKE DETECTORS vs HEAT DETECTORS

2/4/2020 (Permalink)

FIRE AND SMOKE SMOKE DETECTORS vs HEAT DETECTORS SERVPRO OF VENTURA

Smoke detectors and heat detectors are both used to detect fires. When one of these sensors is paired
with an alarm system, it will send an alert to the panel when activated. This will cause an alarm event on
the system. This will cause all sounders and sirens to activate to alert everyone.
The difference between smoke detectors and heat detectors is how they activate. A smoke detector is
activating when senses smoke, typically as an indicator of fire. Commercial security devices issue a signal
to a fire alarm control panel as part of a fire alarm system, while household smoke detectors, also
known as smoke alarms, generally issue a local audible or visual alarm from the detector itself or several
detectors if there are multiple smoke detectors interlinked.
The heat detector is an instrument that warns of fire when the temperature around the smoke detector
reaches a certain level. But heat detectors do not detect smoke. On the other hand, a smoke detector
warns of fire when it comes across combustion or soot products in the atmosphere.
Smoke detectors will give off the alarm even when a small amount of smoke is detected. On the other
hand, heat detectors will not detect even the slightest amounts of a temperature change.
Smoke detectors generally fall into one of two categories. These are photoelectric smoke detectors and
ionization smoke detectors. A photoelectric smoke detector works by using a small internal light. When
smoke enters the chamber, the light will refract. The disruption of the internal light tells the sensor to
activate and alert the system.
Heat detectors also fall into two main categories. There are fixed heat detectors and rate-of-rise heat
detectors. Fixed heat detectors respond upon detecting an extremely high temperature that would only
be present with a fire. Meanwhile, rate-of-rise heat detectors respond when the temperature rises
unusually fast, such as 10 degrees Fahrenheit in a single minute.
Smoke detector and heat detector have two different uses, they are both used as they do well when
installed together in buildings.
1. A Heat detector is an instrument that warns of fire when the temperature around the smoke detector
reaches some level. Smoke detector warns of fire when it comes across combustion or soot products in
the atmosphere.
2. The smoke detectors use ionization and photoelectric technologies whereas heat detector uses
thermocouple and electro-pneumatic technologies.
3. Smoke detectors will give off the alarm even when a small amount of smoke is detected. On the other
hand, heat detectors will not detect even the smallest amount of temperature change.
4. Smoke detectors are very sensitive and may give off false alarms. On the contrary, heat detectors are
more reliable fire detectors, even in dusty environments and only sets off the alarm when the temperature is really high.

Don't Leave Your Disaster Recovery Plan 'Til After the Disaster

1/24/2019 (Permalink)

Disaster recovery planning is one of those things that your IT Department usually worries about just after you've had flood that takes our your datacenter. As the water rises and the electrical circuits start to trips out, the boss will call down and shout something about "calling the disaster recovery team" to get everything back on track ASAP.

This is usually when you remind him that he didn't sign the proposal. The water will carry on rising and the computers will carry on fizzling out, and the data on them will eventually be erased. As the remaining IT team wave goodbye to the boss who failed to sign the proposal, they then sit down with the new boss and hatch a plan, plan to make sure that if everything goes wrong, they can get it all back and run again.

Of course, you don't have to go overboard with DR, it can be as simple as making sure you've got backups, but even those need to be cared for. So, just in case I've worried you enough for you to think that maybe you ought to be protecting your data somehow, according to SERVPRO of Ventura, here are a ways you can make sure you're properly covered and won't suffer a massive data loss when the ceiling falls in.

Take Regular Backups

This sound obvious, and to many, but so many people take a bunch of backups and then pop the tapes in the cupboard next to the server room or pop them in a safe in the accountant's office.

What happens if the building is flattened? How do you handle it when you come to restore from the tapes, and you realized that although you have a fire-proof safe, it's not very heat proof. Melted tapes don't work well in the new tape drive. Neither do melted CD's.

Backups should be taken off-site ideally, SERVPRO of Ventura will do this for you. They turn up in a secure van and take your tapes to a secure off-site storage center, and when the worst happens, you give them a call.

There is no excuse for not having a disaster recovery plan and if you find yourself trying to justify the expense, ask yourself how much it would cost if your entire data infrastructure were to be lost?

The Importance and Purpose of Mold Remediation

1/24/2019 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation

Mold remediation is the removal as well as cleanup of mold present in indoor environments. It is very important to tackle your mold problem head-on before it starts to cause damage to your home and health.

Causes of Mold

Many building materials can sustain the growth of mold. It is mainly caused by the presence of moisture or water indoors and grows on organic materials. Organic materials consists of things that were once living. Most mold growth is found on wood floors or wooded studs. It can also be encouraged by a lack of drying of building materials like concrete. Leaky roofs, flooding, problems connected with plumbing, and building maintenance can result in the growth of mold indoors.

The first thing to do to solve mold problems indoors is to stop the source of the moisture within your home or office, followed by mold removal. Solutions for small instances of mold are the following:

  • Ventilation
  • Sunlight
  • Wall Insulation
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Non-porous building materials
  • Household Cleansers

If the mold growth is significantly high, it might be necessary to choose a professional mold remediation company to eliminate mold from every building material which has been compromised.

The aim of remediation is to clean or entirely remove all contaminated materials in such a way that is effectively checks the release of fungi-contaminated dust from spreading into unaffected areas.

DIFFERENT METHODS

Some ways to hinder mold growth are air conditioning, improved insulation, and also dry fog. Current technology allows mold remediation companies to pack a room with a kind of dry fog that exterminates mold and prevents its growth. This fog contains a chemical which is approved by the EPA and in no way damages or harms the health of animals or individuals. The idea is to attack the mold which is harmful to people and their pets, whatever it takes as long as it does not exacerbate the situation.

However, some companies use other methods of remediating by exposing it to high levels of heat, sunlight, UV light, Ozone, Dry air, and also by spraying fungicides. While such methods can make it non-viable, the mold, including any by-products might still produce harmful health effects and repercussions. The only correct tactic of remediation is to employ detergent solutions that eliminate the mold physically.

Other means of Mold Removal Are:

  • Dry ice blasting: gets rids of mold on wood and cement surfaces
  • Vacuum: removes accumulated water from carpets and floors.
  • Damp wipe: by scrubbing or wiping non-porous surfaces with water and detergent.
  • HVPA Vacuum: Vacuum cleaners equipped with HVPA or High-Efficiency Particulate Air Filters are meant for the final cleanup of affected areas.

After remediation is achieved, all mold-affected furnishings, as well as building materials should be put in closed containers or impervious bags and disposed of as conventional construction waste

A Word of Caution

While engaged in mold removal, do not, on any account, breathe in either the mold or its spores, since it can be highly damaging to your health.

When it comes to come remediation, you should consider the service of SERVPRO of Ventura. For more information, visit www.SERVPROventura.com or call us (805) 656-3911.
