Water Damage In Building

6/2/2019 (Permalink)

As we continuously reiterate, here at SERVPRO we put our customer’s needs above all else. We’re also here to help the community in any way we can. So when we got the call from a local business that they needed our help we were more than happy to provide our services. As you can see from looking at the before picture the building suffered severe water damage. Notice the huge puddle of water in the photograph. Our crew went in with air movers and dehumidifiers to get rid of all the water. This process is timely but our crew stays until we are absolutely sure all the water is removed. Our products work phenomenally to ensure that we give quality service every time we have a job.

Containing The Damage

We take mold jobs very seriously here at SERVPRO of Hoboken/Union City. Pictured here is one of our job site’s that was facing a growth. We contained the mold to one room. The sheet prevents the and continuous spreading. Once the area is contained we then use antimicrobial sprays to stop the mold in its tracks. Unfortunately mold does not hold back. It spread to numerous boxes and bins that were not able to be saved. Fortunately, for the client we were able to salvage a good amount of items that were unaffected. We sprayed these items as well as they were exposed to the mold spores. Once the items were cleaned we separated them from the containment to prevent further contamination. The client was very happy with our work post labor.

What is National Preparedness Month?

4/19/2019 (Permalink)

We do know it's only April, but that doesn't mean you can't get ready for National Preparedness month! 

September is National Preparedness Month, an annual awareness event sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. We at SERVPRO of Hoboken/Union City think this is a great time for business owners to review their emergency preparedness and business continuity plans.

Look at the startling statistics like this one to emphasize the importance of advance planning: according to FEMA, as many as 40 percent of businesses never reopen following a major flood disaster.

Because we know the time to create a disaster readiness plan is before it's needed, our corporate offices developed the SERVPRO Emergency READY Program to help business owners create an Emergency READY Profile for their facility, at no charge.

Are you ready for your Emergency Ready Program? Give us a call and we'll schedule an appointment. We're READY to help, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You know our motto, "Like it never even happened."

We know opening a business is a risk in itself. You don't know if it's going to sink or swim. Let's just say in this example that you're Jane Doe and your business is booming. One night you're asleep peacefully in your bed. All of a sudden you awake to a call that your business is flooded. Now you're panicking, you ask yourself how you're going to get water out of a 10,000 square ft. room. You know you don't have nearly enough mops or buckets to clean something of that size. You think for a second and then remember that you saw an ad for SERVPRO and give them a call. There are a million things that can happen to your business or commercial space that you don't always anticipate. Luckily,we are trained for these kinds of events. We would show up to Jane Doe's business with the appropriate amount of equipment to extract the water. No matter how big or small the job may be, you can call us.

This particular job was for one of our clients who experienced troubles after a pipe burst in their parking garage. Not pictured here is the damage that took place on the ceiling of the garage. The ceiling had air pockets that were swelling up with water inside them. This type of damage can lead to a number of other issues including mold. Our client was lucky they called us when they did or this could have gotten much worse.  Our crew went in with SERVPRO tools and the damage was fixed hastily. The picture on the right is the ceiling once it’s been patched up and restored to its original condition. Our client was very happy with the results and noted that it was done way sooner than anticipated.
