Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Teaneck Requires SERVPRO’s Aid

There are several ways in which water damage might affect your business, and the main one is closing it down. If you do not take immediate action, long-term ages are sure to manifest when the cost of restoration increases. Every day that your business spends locked down, you lose revenue.

Since you can’t run your business while it’s underwater, you need a team of professionals who can remove the standing water, repair the source of the water intrusion, and prevent mold growth, which is what SERVPRO provides for businesses. We are a premier provider of commercial water damage restoration in Teaneck. We are a nationwide company with over 50 years of experience in the restoration sector and the ability to handle water damage, independent of size. Our well-trained and equipped team is just a call away.

At SERVPRO, we emphasize fast responses to avert a disaster before it leads to severe losses. Insurance companies pay more easily when restorers complete the job on time. It is the property owner’s responsibility to act in case of an emergency. Our process aims to ensure you experience no drag before and during restoration. When restoration does not start promptly, secondary damages occur, including:

  • Colonization by mold spores
  • Buckling of hardwood floors
  • Cracking and sagging of sheetrock and plaster, and
  • Loosening of the vinyl on the floor

Moisture meters come in handy in helping our team ensure that the affected contents and materials have attained the proper moisture levels after the drying process. SERVPRO has a wide variety of these, as necessities dictate; some are made for specific materials, while others can be adjusted between the materials. We have penetrating moisture meters based on the electrical conductivity principle by penetrating the materials restorers are testing. 

When working on materials that can sustain damage because of penetration, our SERVPRO technicians use non-penetrating moisture meters, which detect moisture using capacitance, conductivity, or radio frequency emissions.

To avoid watching helplessly as your Teaneck business succumbs to water damage, contact SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Person Sitting In a Chair At a Laundromat There is never a good time to have your business closed and not receive revenue. Call SERVPRO after water damage and we will respond quickly.

Quick Action By Our Certified Technicians Will Have Your Water Damaged Business Back Open in Record Time

A laundromat is, by nature, a business that deals with water and suds. Having several washers in one place means that any laundry business is at risk of a leak from a damaged appliance. Even if you keep your washers in good condition, it only takes one fault to cause a flood on your premises.

SERVPRO understands that closing your business doors is not a viable option. You want to get up and running again as soon as you can. That is why we take commercial water damage in Englewood businesses seriously and always respond promptly – We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. We attend your premises as quickly as we can and immediately start formulating a plan of action to get your doors open again.

One of the most frustrating parts of flood damage is the paperwork. You need to deal with your insurance company and adjusters, and that takes up valuable time that you would rather spend getting your business back on its feet. It is a necessary evil.

We will take some of the stress out of post-water damage paperwork. Our industry software is compatible with a broad range of commercial enterprises. What does that mean for your business? It means that we can generate the appropriate forms for your company and make it easier to get information to your insurance adjuster. Our experts can also liaise with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure they have all the paperwork and details they need to get started on your claim.

Of course, once the paperwork is with the adjuster, it is up to them to do their job while we focus on it. We equip our IICRC-certified technicians with the skills and tools necessary to dry your laundromat. We have free-standing and truck-mounted pumps on hand to get as much water as possible from your premises before drying begins.

When it is time to dry your property, we conduct a thorough assessment that tells us the extent of the damage to the building and its contents. Then we set to work positioning air movers, dehumidifiers, and fans in the perfect configuration for your unique situation. We monitor drying at every stage to ensure we reach our drying goal and your business is left dry and ready to open to the public.

Do not let leaking appliances damage your profits. Call SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482 for help.

Commercial Water in Restoration Teaneck Calls for SERVPRO’s Expertise

6/30/2022 (Permalink)

Standing water on restaurant floor Commercial water damage? No worries! SERVPRO is always on the job.

Tips for Commercial Water Restoration in Teaneck

Water damage repair projects are complex, and in a commercial building, it takes experienced eyes to spot the real issues and assess how deep the damage has gone. The cost of possible loss of long-standing tenants, customers, or business interruption makes it essential to expedite the water restoration process. 

SERVPRO can complete commercial water restoration in your Teaneck property with minimal disruption to tenants who use the unaffected areas of the building. We can help you avoid revenue loss. Our water damage restoration process involves the following steps:

  • Immediate inspection
  • Industrial grade drying 
  • Repairs, disinfection, and deodorization
  • Cleaning and putting back

Immediate Inspection

We can assess the damage and use equipment like thermal imaging cameras to detect areas where moisture could be present in walls. Water may not soak through drywall, but a thermal imaging camera can see temperature fluctuations, indicating potential issues. Our SERVPRO technicians can then create a detailed drying plan to remove water and moisture quickly and safely. 

Industrial Grade Drying 

Our SERVPRO team can extract the water using powerful pumps. We can use specialized drying equipment like air movers and dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process. Drying helps prevent mold infestation. Our team can carefully monitor the progress of the drying process to attain equilibrium moisture content levels. 

Repairs, Disinfection, and Deodorization

After drying, we can determine if disinfection, structural repairs, and deodorization procedures are necessary. We can apply antimicrobial products to tackless strips, subfloor, wall bottom plates, and walls. These organic materials encourage microbial growth and the development of smells linked with microbes. We can use specialized equipment like ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers to dispense solvent-based and water-based deodorizers. The foggers generate small deodorants or particles that penetrate most areas where odor particles hide. 

Cleaning and Putting Back

Our SERVPRO technicians can clean the floors and return the contents to their respective places. We can involve you through each step and provide you with a certificate of completion. 

SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood can treat your commercial property with urgency, care, and a commitment to your satisfaction. Call us at (201) 266-0482 to open your doors as soon as possible. 

What Does Fire Damage Restoration of a Teaneck Cake Shop Require?

SERVPRO Considers Fire Damage Extent When Restoring Teaneck Premises

A critical piece of equipment, like an oven, can be a recipe for disaster in a bakery. A problem in the transportation system or heat exchanger may cause oil to escape into the baking chamber of an indirect-fired thermal oven, thus causing a fire in a Teaneck cake shop. You can call SERVPRO for efficient cleanup and rapid-fire damage restoration in your commercial property.

SERVPRO technicians are experts at fire damage restoration in Teaneck premises. We restore internal and external surfaces that have been fire or smoke damaged, such as brickwork, walls, ceilings, flooring, air conditioning, and ventilation systems. By factoring in the type of finish and extent of the damage on the furniture in your shop, our crew can effectively restore the surface from smoke damage.

Useful Actions During Smoke Residues Removal

  • Finding the residues
  • Categorizing the residue types
  • Identifying the surface affected by soot residues  
  • Removing and properly disposing of residues

Aspects to Consider When Cleaning Wood Surfaces

When cleaning wood surfaces, we consider the different finishes like shellac, varnish, paint, waxes, or lacquer, which affects furniture's resistance to smoke odors and particles. This might limit or expand the range of cleaning methods we use.  

Cleaning Methods Effective During the Restoration Process

  • Dry cleaning
  • Wet cleaning
  • Abrasive cleaning

Our cleaning methods begin by removing as many dry soils from the surfaces as possible using a vacuum, feather dusters, dusting cloth, or a dry cleaning sponge. Unfinished wood surfaces easily absorb smoke residues and odors and are best cleaned using dry cleaning methods. If water-based products are used in such a case, they allow absorption of smoke residues deeper into the pores, thus causing staining. We might also use denatured alcohol if the sponge is not effective enough. SERVPRO technicians use a mild detergent to clean and apply oil-based furniture polish to restore the wood's natural oils for moderate levels of soot residues on wood furniture.

SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood provides commercial properties with efficient fire cleanup restoring pre-damaged conditions. Call us at (201) 266-0482. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

How Can Property Owners Perform Commercial Water Removal in Englewood?

They Should Hire SERVPRO to Assist Them With Commercial Water Repair in Englewood

Water and moisture damage is among the most significant causes of damage in commercial properties like warehouses. It can affect the structural integrity of the building, ruin inventory and cause mold infestation. After a water intrusion incident, SERVPRO can assist you in performing the required repairs.

We are skilled in performing commercial water removal in affected Englewood warehouses. We can prevent secondary water damage with modern equipment and effective water removal and drying techniques. Our restoration process may involve the following steps:

  • Removing standing water
  • Professional cleaning
  • Drying the affected building materials
  • Deodorization

Water removal

Our SERVPRO water restoration technicians (WRT) can use truck-mounted or portable pumps to remove the stagnant water. We mostly use centrifugal pumps to remove water. Centrifugal pumps convert rational energy in the form of a motor to move fluids. After extracting the water, we can use non-penetrating moisture meters to check for remaining moisture. These meters detect moisture using capacitance, conductivity, or radiofrequency emissions. They do not penetrate the materials we are testing and cause no surface damage. Non-penetrating moisture meters are useful for locating high moisture in materials like plaster and drywall, where it is essential to reduce damage.


Existing moisture in your warehouse can affect inventory, and building materials. Our SERVPRO team can use air moving equipment to drive air into the affected area to expedite the drying process.

Professional cleaning

We can use antimicrobial products to clean your property to kill microbes.


After water damage, your warehouse may have a musty odor. Our SERVPRO team can use ULV misters to suppress the sources of unpleasant smells. ULV misters atomize liquid deodorizing agents, mainly water-based agents, to produce a fine mist. The misters generate deodorant particles of about 20 to 60 microns in size, meaning that they are small enough to penetrate many areas where odor-causing residues accumulate.

If you need assistance with handling commercial water damage, contact SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Advantages of Prompt Containment After a Fire in a Teaneck Warehouse

12/15/2021 (Permalink)

Our fast response to fire emergencies ensures that appropriate mitigation solutions begin for Teaneck businesses.

Fires can be destructive and overwhelming for area businesses, even in large facilities like a warehouse. With fast mitigation and containment solutions, we can limit the amount of tear-out and reconstruction needed. Containment has several direct benefits.

Allows Work to Continue When Possible

Any level of fire damage restoration in Teaneck can be somewhat intrusive and disruptive to your daily routine. Our objective is to limit the impact we have on your operations as much as possible, and this can be easier through the implementation of containment barriers. Preventing the growth of the loss area allows the business to function in a limited capacity in many cases rather than shutting down.

Creates a Manageable Space for Cleaning

Cleaning up after a fire is a critical step in getting your business back up and running at its full capacity. Containment protocols prevent cross-contamination of adjacent spaces, allowing a faster regulation and restoration of heavily impacted areas of the structure. Physical barriers allow our professionals to manage airflow, moisture, airborne particles, and odors.

Prevents the Spread of Post-Fire Effects

Yet another advantage to containing the damaged space with barriers is preventing the spread of loss effects throughout the warehouse. Limiting the workspace to the ignition point and the immediate vicinity allows greater management of widespread conditions like odors and soot. With barriers in place, we can implement deodorization tools to help, such as:

  • ULV Foggers
  • Ozone Generators
  • Hydroxyl Machines
  • HEPA 500 Scrubbers

As you can see, containment is a vital service our professionals provide after fire damage. When commercial properties become exposed to smoke and soot particles, we must keep these loss effects to the specific damaged areas so restoration can be more efficient. Our SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood team is available 24/7 at (201) 266-0482.

Establishing Temporary Power

Establishing effective and reliable power is a priority of water restoration companies in Teaneck office buildings after water and flood damage. Widespread damage can leave the property without suitable electricity for restoration, so our SERVPRO team arrives with a trailered generator to run spider boxes of portable power in the building.

Water Removal Services

Removing any standing water must also be a concern for office buildings after widespread exposure. We use the most efficient tools in our inventory to move hundreds of gallons of water a minute. These forceful units can quickly manage pooling in the building. Some options include:

  • Truck-Mount Pumps
  • Gas-Powered Trash Pump Units
  • Wet Vacuums
  • Squeegee Wands

Evaporation by Commercial Drying Specialists

Evaporative drying is critical to protect an office building from the degradation and deterioration resulting from prolonged water exposure. We have hundreds of high-velocity air movers of varying sizes and shapes to meet the surface evaporation needs of massive facilities but also trailered desiccant dehumidifiers to grab moisture out of several rooms of a building simultaneously.

There are several tools and equipment that are exclusively designed for large loss events that impact the area. As the trusted name in water damage restoration, we are ready for disasters of all sizes, both with our experienced team of professionals and with the trailered and commercial-grade devices needed to make losses “Like it never even happened.” Call our SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood team today at (201) 266-0482.

Erasing the Impact of Fire Damage in Englewood

10/5/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO fire damaged sign Fire damage restoration is not a DIY project. SERVPRO uses the latest technology and equipment for every fire damage restoration job.

Hiring SERVPRO Gets You the Fire Damage Restoration You Need for Your Englewood Business

Fire impact on your Englewood business can be devastating, and it often leaves an owner not knowing where to begin. SERVPRO is available 24/7 so that we can come out to your building to provide emergency restoration when you need it. Our services make it so that you can get your building back into a preloss condition faster than DIY cleanup methods alone. With the professional techniques and latest advancements in the fire restoration world, we can erase all traces of the fire throughout your property.

What Should I Do Right After the Fire?

Once the fire is extinguished and deemed safe to enter, you should call our team right away. A crew is deployed, and upon arrival, we can start the assessment and plan for restoring your fire damage in Englewood. We have a range of cleaning techniques and restoration equipment available that allows us to salvage as much of your interior as possible. 

Do I Have to Worry About the Air Quality in My Building After a Fire?

There can be a lot of soot and smoke particles left after a fire. You also need to be concerned about remaining moisture from the fire being extinguished, as lingering water brings about the potential for possibly harmful mold and mildew growth. Our skilled technicians select the best equipment and filtration tools to clean and restore the air quality within your building. Not only does this help to ensure the air is breathable, but it reduces the potential threat of tough smoke odors and microbial contamination.

  • Air Scrubbers – These machines help to reduce the number of particulates and debris from the environment. They also cut back on the threat from certain microorganisms known for colonizing when conditions are moist. The machines work similarly to our Hydroxyl machinery, pulling in the contaminated air, trapping the airborne debris, and putting out cleaner air.
  • Hydroxyl Generators – These generators are dual-acting, meaning that they deodorize the interior of your building while also filtering and purifying the air. This equipment features a HEPA-filtration system where the air goes into the machine, and the filter traps all particles, debris, and microbes. 

How Do You Address Soot Stains?

During a fire, the heat from the fire brings about charring to various surface areas. Standard restoration, replacement, or resurfacing is usually the best option. Because this is often time-consuming and costly, our skilled SERVPRO technicians use various techniques and advanced equipment to address the tough soot and smoke residue. With soda blasting, pressurized air puts out sodium bicarbonate at a high rate of speed to strip away the smoke residue and charring. Since sodium bicarbonate also acts as a deodorizer, it helps to remove odors from damaged materials being treated. 

Smoke and soot particles settle very quickly on ceilings, walls, and other flat surfaces throughout your office after a fire. Trying to clean with DIY methods is time-consuming and often unproductive. Our technicians may use vacuum cleaners and pressure washers to help remove residue faster in your Englewood building. We also have HEPA filters in our industrial strength vacuums that help pull out loosened soot particles without worrying that they get redistributed into the air. 

Can Smoke Odors be Completely Eliminated?

We have perfected the process of removing smoke odors from your interior after a fire. Each step helps break down harsh residue and locate all areas where odorous particles may have lingered. 

  • When necessary, we remove belongings and furniture from your building to be deodorized elsewhere. This also helps prevent the transfer of smoke residue to other parts of the building that are unaffected.
  • Our technicians carefully clean all surfaces covered in residue, making sure to leave no area untreated. We have an extensive selection of EPA-approved cleaning agents to remove residue from burned materials, including wood, plastic, and building materials such as drywall.
  • More pungent odors call for recreation of the situation that caused odor penetration to various surfaces. Deodorant agents are heated with our fogging machinery, generating a chemical agent cloud that helps to penetrate deeply to reach the odors. 
  • Exposed surfaces can also be sealed if a fire burned a significant portion of the building and created a great deal of smoke residue. This is done by using a special primer coat on the walls before using a final color and sealing the ductwork throughout the HVAC system.

Working with skilled technicians is the best way to go when it comes to the fallout from fire damage in your business. You can call SERVPRO of Teaneck/Englewood 24/7 at (201) 266-0482, and we can send out a team quickly to make it “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Can resolve your Commercial Fire Damage in Teaneck

Getting hit with a commercial fire is one of the business owner's worst nightmares in Teaneck. In addition to causing financial challenges, hardships, and damage to the property's structure, fires can leave the by-product of water damage that leads to the presence of unwanted mold. To ensure that your commercial property can be restored to its original safe and sanitary condition promptly, it's important to call SERVPRO. To get a clear, concise understanding of how to quickly address and resolve your fire damage issues, refer to the following outline:

Call Your Insurer

Your initial call after your property has suffered extensive fire damage is to your insurance agent. The insurer should be effective and expedient in helping you locate temporary accommodations where you can conduct business while your property is renovated and restored if this is appropriate. The insurer should also be able to assist you with the process of finding a professional fire damage restoration company. SERVPRO works with over 300 insurance companies, agencies, and property management corporations. In some cases, your insurance provider can request that you create an inventory of all the personal belongings, capital improvements, electronics, furnishings, and documents on the property, as well as their value. SERVPRO can generate a comprehensive inventory for salvageable, non-salvageable, and questionable content to assist you. This is our helpful Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) form.  Final decisions, replacement or clean and repair of contents, are always between you and your insurance company. 

The Assessment of Water and Fire Damages

Although each aspect of the fire damage restoration process is important, the initial assessment plays an integral role in the whole procedure. During the assessment, specialists perform several tests to determine the time frame and costs necessary to restore your property. This forms the basis to implement the actual fire damage restoration steps. Standing water, the result of the firefighting efforts, must first be extracted. Our skilled technicians clean up debris and remove it for storage or discarding. The drying step utilizes dehumidifiers and air movers to draw moisture and humidity from the business. Soot cleaning and smoke and odor elimination continue the restoration process. SERVPRO possesses state-of-the-art equipment such as ozone machines, foggers, and mold remediation chemicals to bring the fire damage restoration to completion. 

The SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood IICRC-certified crew offers you the precise, proficient services you need to get you back in business after fire damage. Call us at (201) 266-0482.

Some of the ways active colonization can impact your shop include:

  • Surface damages
  • Ruined contents
  • Harsh odors
  • Volatile organic compounds
  • Possible health effects

How Can Black Mold Removal Happen for Teaneck Shops? 

Black mold removal for Teaneck shops and stores should happen as soon as possible. Often, this process is not limited to a single remediation tactic.

Protecting Historic Homes and Businesses of Teaneck from Water Damage

SERVPRO team ready for action. Water disaster in your commercial building should be handled by the professionals of SERVPRO. Their IICRC certified technicians are ready for action.

Water disasters and flooding can devastate landmarks and protected buildings in Bergen County. 

While some of the most significant increase in population and development of the Teaneck area happened shortly after World War I, the city has steadily increased its numbers nearly every decade to the present. This growth continues to evolve the city's business landscape to suit its current demographics, which has provided multiple different looks for the municipality over time.

What was once a sparsely populated area featuring widespread farmland became a richly developed urban environment, which has used nearly all of its available land for development into housing or businesses. While this has slowed the increase in size or population, it has helped solidify which properties deserved historic status and protection when unforeseen disasters or damaging storms occur.

Historic Sites of Teaneck 

-      John Ackerman House – To the locals here, the property is more widely known as "Old River House" and was built to house the Ackerman family on River Rd. The house has stood in this spot since 1734 and was recognized as a historic location in 1936.

-      Adam Vandelinda House – This property was initially constructed in 1780 and recognized as a site worth protecting in 1983 by the National Register of Historic Places. This large property stands as a testament to the late 18th century's building styles and has many of its original building materials and layout.

-      Brinkerhoff-Demarest House – This house predates the American Revolution by more than 40 years. It is an excellent example of colonial architecture despite some of the more modern implements that needed replacing over time. This house has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1983, along with the Vandelinda House.

-      New Bridge Landing – During the American Revolution, this site featured a strategic bridge crossing that allowed the continental army to cross the Hackensack River under the leadership of General George Washington. 11 battles or engagements would occur in and around this bridge, ultimately leading to its destruction and required reconstruction in 1889. In 1989, it was recognized as a site of historical significance. 

Fast Water Mitigation Solutions for Teaneck Businesses

Starting water mitigation in Teaneck businesses quickly after a disaster occurs can prevent unnecessary damage and destruction to the property. Often, the heart of mitigation for water disasters is extraction and removal efforts. Eliminating standing water can prevent the migration of loss effects to other areas of the property that might not be as easily accessed by drying tools and dehumidification devices.

Mitigation can also include the actions taken by our division of building trade professionals and contractors offering both controlled demolition and plumbing repairs. Getting your business back in water service can be useful for customers and employees and help to keep operating in a limited capacity while restoration continues when possible.

Water disasters can get out of control without fast and deliberate mitigation. Our SERVPRO of Teaneck/Englewood team is ready to help 24/7 when you call (201) 266-0482.

How Soon Can a Teaneck Business Reopen after Flooding?

SERVPRO Assists Teaneck Businesses by Managing Commercial Flood Damage Restoration from Start to Finish.

Do businesses need commercial restoration services?
Teaneck businesses that are open to the public must follow stringent health and safety guidelines. It is often not enough to remove floodwaters from a property before re-opening. A careful assessment of damage criteria, contamination, and possible microbial growth patterns are essential before a business can safely entertain customers. SERVPRO is a local, commercial restoration service that can ensure your company returns to its best by performing efficient and responsible mitigation and drying services. We have experience working with commercial clients and business insurance adjusters to allow a smooth transition for your business.

What are the types of water contamination that can affect flood restoration?
    •    Clean water intrusion has the least contamination and comes from internal plumbing issues or massive rainwater intrusion
    •    Greywater emergencies may include water from an unclean supply.
    •    Blackwater intrusion is among the most common types of flood damage where there is a strong presence of potentially harmful water substances.

What materials need to be replaced after flooding?
When black water causes commercial flood damage in your Teaneck business, many materials are non-salvageable. Lots of building materials in your commercial premises are semi-porous. Semi-porous materials can absorb water contamination and continue to cause unsanitary conditions after water extraction and drying. SERVPRO technicians can remove and replace materials like drywall, fabrics, textiles, or carpeting from your business quickly to ensure you re-open sooner.

What is the work process for restoring commercial properties?
    •    Assessing the damage as well as the level of water contamination in the property
    •    Extracting excess water using extractors or submersible pumping equipment
    •    Drying the property, cleaning salvageable materials, and replacing semi-porous items like drywall

If your business falls victim for flooding, you can reach us twenty-four hours a day in an emergency. Contact SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482 now.

Why Is Extraction the Most Important Part Of Water Removal?

7/22/2020 (Permalink)

mobile devices showing the ERP Program App SERVPRO Says--Teaneck Area Commercial Enterprises Should Have Our ERP Emergency READY Profile Plan to Help Prevent and Mitigate Water and Fire Losses

SERVPRO’s Water Removal Process Gets Teaneck Business Owners Back in the Game

Business people in Teaneck want to take good care of their commercial premises – especially in the case of a large mishap such as a leak; commercial property is one of its significant assets and often one of the most costly.

Teaneck business owners need water removal in a hurry in the event of a flood, leak, or any other water incident. Swift remediation means getting back to work faster. The first step in water removal is using extraction equipment to draw away standing water.

Why is extraction so important?

Moisture can do a lot of damage to business premises, including:

  • Warping wood floors or beams
  • Soaking drywall and causing it to collapse
  • Causing rust and tarnishing on metal surfaces
  • Providing a breeding ground for mold and mildew

 Are all extraction projects the same?

Not every extraction project is the same. Each incident is unique and requires an individual approach.

When we arrive on-site, we carry out a thorough assessment of your building and the water intrusion, so we can develop a water removal plan that works for you.

What equipment does SERVPRO use for extraction?

Our technicians have access to a range of extractors, including:

  •        Free-standing extractors
  •        Truck-mounted extractors
  •        Carpet wands

Commercial Water Removal in New Milford Pizzerias

Commercial Water Removal

Water damage is a common problem for New Milford businesses. Pipes burst, and plumbing becomes backed-up for various reasons year-round. Getting the water out is the important first step.

New Milford commercial water removal services are important for every business, but especially for one where children are the customer focus. Pizza places with a theme and arcade games attract a lot of business, which means many kids are running around. In an environment already filled with coughing children, crying infants, and spilled soda everywhere, we know that the last thing a manager needs is a soggy carpet and out-of-order bathrooms.

The first thing we do is stop the leak. In a business like this one, the usual sources are a broken sink or backed-up toilet in the bathroom. If the manager has not done so already, we turn off the water to stop the flow and then fix the problem. We fix most plumbing issues in just an hour or two.

Now we get the water out. If the water is more than an inch in depth, we bring in a commercial grade water pump. Even in a large facility like a pizzeria, technicians can remove all standing water in a single day. Once the water is barely covering the surface and most of it is trapped in the carpets, we change over to water extraction wands.

For water less than an inch in depth, we go directly to the wands to pull moisture from the carpet and out of cracks or grooves in concrete and tile. Depending on the amount of carpet involved, this task takes one or two days. Since most commercial carpets do not have a pad underneath, technicians save time because we do not have to lift the carpet to dispose of it. Additional drying is often needed, but these the wands and pumps remove over 90 percent of the water.

As a locally owned franchise operation, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood understands that every business needs to reopen quickly after a shut-down. Keeping our customers happy and our community thriving is why we do this. To learn more about what we can do for you, call us at (201) 266-0482 today.

Aquarium Can Cause Flood Damage to Your Englewood Office

5/3/2020 (Permalink)

aquarium fish tank You can depend on us to get the job done right and get it done quickly.

Flood Damage Caused By Your Waiting Room's Aquarium

An aquarium tank, when full, experiences intense pressure from the inside. Fish tanks are constructed of glass pieces and silicone adhesive inserted inside a metal or wooden frame. They are well-known for developing tiny leaks that are hard to locate when full.

Not all flood damage in Englewood originates from the outside world. Placing an aquarium on display for your clients can relax them immeasurably. However, ensuring that your tank is never leaking can be hard to do. Draining a tank, finding temporary homes for all of the occupants, and then drying the tank out to remove and reapply silicone can be an especially tiresome task, which is why many times a tank is left as it is until it is too late and the tank's water gushes out.

Fish tanks are as foul-smelling as they are beautiful, even when they are maintained correctly. When the water spills out of a fish tank, what was once a beautiful centerpiece in your clean waiting area quickly becomes a disgusting and flooded mess – not something you want clients to see, or to smell. A good water repair company knows that your professional image is directly affected by the experience your clients have, beginning from the moment they walk into the waiting room until they conclude their session with you. We want to make it pleasant for everyone again, no matter the source of your flood damage.

Cleaning up the Water

The procedure for cleaning up and restoring your practice after flood damage happens reflects not only the damaged area but also the type of water involved. Water from a fish tank contains uneaten food and other organic components, and any chemicals used to treat the water. Algae is also a common element in fish tanks. While the water may look clean, we would classify this flood as black water because of the nature of the water. Even with water extraction, subsequent cleaning, and anti-microbial treatments, it is likely that more is needed.

Bad Odors from Flooding

When flood damage includes bad odors that are left behind, as it often does, we include deodorization techniques in our services. In many buildings, the carpet acts as a built-in filter for collecting particles that were airborne. Flooding greatly hinders this filtering. After a flood, instead of holding onto particles, the carpet now releases the newly deposited particles into the air. Our Carpet Repair and Reinstallation Technician (RRT) has been certified by the IICRC in cleaning techniques. After the carpet is clean, an assessment of which type machinery is required to best address the problem of remaining odors.

Fogging is a very effective way to rid an area of odors. Because of the water inherent in a disaster such as flooding, dry fogging is often preferred over other methods. Dry-fogging is also called thermal fogging. Fogging allows the mist used to penetrate every nook and cranny. The deodorizing particles in the mist then bind with those particles that cleaning could not remove. Before we consider our work complete, your waiting room can be “Like it never even happened.” No more water, and no lingering fish odor to irritate your clients or your staff.

When your practice has flood damage, there is no need to cancel your clients' appointments. Instead, call us, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood to make your appointment. We can be reached at all hours of the day or night by calling us at (201) 266-0482. We can begin work within the hour, ensuring that your clients will not miss their next session with you.

When Water Damages Your Teaneck Office

3/3/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO drying equipment being used in water damaged office buiding Don't let water damage disrupt your office. Call SERVPRO!

Janitors Closet Source of Commercial Water Damage in Teaneck Office 

Sometime after the office closed a supply line in a janitorial closet broke, and the office manager arrived to open the following morning, a large amount of water ran down the hallway and entered the doorways of several offices.  

When the techs arrived at the Teaneck property, they found wide-scale commercial water damage. The techs immediately scoped the premises to determine the exact areas of water loss while extracting the water left.  

Consequences of Hours of Water Exposure

The longer water has the opportunity to remain on floors and within building materials, the more damage it does. Even though the cleanup started in the morning hours, the time the laminate tile flooring spent in the elevated moisture caused the tile to delaminate and for seepage to occur into the subfloor. Although water ran behind the baseboards, it did not have a chance to wick into the sheetrock.  

Drying the Office Evenly

When SERVPRO techs set up drying configurations, it is more than setting up fans and waiting. The techs use clusters of air movers along with dehumidifiers in each section to dry the entire loss area at the same time. During the drying phase, the techs monitor the interior air moisture levels to ensure the process goes as planned.  

Limiting Disruption During Restoration Services

SERVPRO techs know it is tough to have to close an office for water loss cleanup suddenly and even harder if everything got moved around. The techs carefully document anything they have to move during mitigation and try to dry items in place whenever possible. 

Wipe Down and Necessary Repairs

The technicians use professional-grade solutions, some exclusive to SERVPRO, such as their Orange cleaner. Bacteria can establish itself rapidly after a water loss, and the techs work to ensure all areas affected by the event get sanitized and ready for regular day-to-day activities when the office reopens. After the restoration services complete, the techs provide a list of the actions taken as well as the necessary repairs to bring the office to its preloss condition. 

SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482 takes on commercial water damage large or small and uses their restoration knowledge to make the loss, "Like it never even happened."

We Can Remove Surface Floodwater In Your Englewood Warehouses

12/4/2019 (Permalink)

warehouse after restoration No matter when flooding occurs in your warehouse, we can help you!

Removing Surface Floodwater from Englewood Warehouses

Even though concrete flooring and steel building materials have a very low porosity for standing water and saturation, flooding in your Englewood warehouse can be a costly disaster. Addressing the migrating flood water involves the use of both our premier extraction tools, as well as effective drying solutions and cleaning products. Protecting your facility hinges on the fast and confident response of professionals like our SERVPRO team.

Invading water can move quickly across the warehouse floor, which can lead to widespread flood damage in Englewood structures. Surface water does not easily penetrate solid materials like concrete or metal, allowing it to pool at the floor level and get absorbed into inventory, boxes, crates, and pallets throughout this main floor of the building instead. With how readily moisture can affect stocked items and packing materials throughout the warehouse, removing this standing water is vital to protecting your stored products.

Our SERVPRO team has a warehouse of our own, one which can store and protect removed belongings and contents from your building until restoration and drying are complete. Our content management team can determine what items are in the direct path for water exposure or even in position for damage from elevated humidity and moisture content in the area. We can pack and move these items to our facility for safekeeping and focused drying, cleaning, and deodorization efforts before that.

Clearing out surface water often falls to the use of our portable electric sump pumps. However, when debris and other particulates can exist within this standing water, self-priming trash pumps can do the job more effectively. Both of these units offer discharge into drains and the exterior of the building with hoses, allowing our SERVPRO team to gain control of widespread flooding scenarios quickly.

Cleaning and disinfection of the warehouse are often necessary after potential contamination following flooding, but little reconstruction or controlled demolition is necessary. Threats and contaminants can remain at the surface levels of concrete and steel structural materials, allowing our SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood team to clean and disinfect these surfaces where they stay installed. No matter when flooding occurs, we can help you; however, you need by calling (201) 266-0482.

Sprinkler System Malfunction In New Milford

Fire sprinkler head on white ceiling in the building We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Commercial Water Damage New Milford from a Sprinkler System Malfunction

Damage from a water event can occur at any time, and when it happens at your commercial office, your business may be in jeopardy. It is essential to deal with all water leaks quickly to limit the time your office must remain closed while the cleanup is underway. A malfunctioning sprinkler system can spray hundreds of gallons of water all over your office, leaving everything soaked.

SERVPRO understands how important it is to react quickly to commercial water damage situations in New Milford. We begin by making an over the phone assessment so we can dispatch the crew and tools needed for the job. Our crew chief can make an immediate assessment, organize the job and staff to get you back in operation as quickly as possible. We mobilize quickly to limit the damage and get you back into business.

The initial task is to shut the water off and make sure the building is safe from electrical hazards as well as slip and fall situations. We focus on removing standing water using high capacity water extractors. All furniture is wiped down and removed to a dry location. Computers and electronics are disconnected; the outside surface is dried and removed to a dry location for further assessment by computer specialists.

Water extractors may be used further to remove water from carpets and flooring. We bring in large air movers and strategically locate these devices throughout the building to help absorb moisture. In some situations, we may create negative pressure areas to draw dry air into the building and expel humid air. Dehumidifiers can also assist in drying the air and surrounding building materials further.

SERVPRO's objective is to restore your commercial operations as quickly as possible. We can work with your team to set up staging areas and temporary work areas to help maintain operations while recovery is underway. We work closely with your team and communicate every step to ensure that there are no missteps that could delay reopening.

New Milford's Commercial Mold Damage Repair Crews Discuss The Importance Of HEPA-Filtered Vacuums

Mold only needs an organic food source, moisture, and time to develop inside your cafe in New Milford. Anyone in the food business knows that the utilization of large amounts of water makes spills and leaks more likely. Once building materials or stored products get wet, commercial mold damage is expected to take place. If you ever notice fungal contamination inside your place of business, it is wise to call in the experts at SERVPRO.

Once a fungus forms, it starts releasing seeds or spores into the air for reproductive purposes. These microscopic spores can spread and cause commercial mold damage inside your New Milford cafe in areas other than the spot it initially developed. Since mold can cause health effects with some people, it is important to remove it from your foodservice company's building. Once fungi develops, it will continue to release spores unless it gets properly removed. Our SERVPRO team can use advanced technology and specialized techniques to remove contamination while reducing the chances of it spreading at the same time.

Once a section of your restaurant gets contaminated by mold, its spores can spread then settle on surfaces near to and far away from the initial source. To prevent these spores from growing into fungi, we can vacuum up affected areas and sections of your building that could have been contaminated. We can use vacuums that have HEPA filters in them so that any harmful particles get trapped in the filter as the vacuum sucks air into its bag.

In some cases, agitation methods, including scrubbing, sanding, and sandblasting, can be used to remove fungal contamination. When this occurs, we can first seal off the work area with plastic so that spores cannot spread during the removal process. Then we can use the HEPA vac to clean up any particles created by the agitation process. For example, if sanding a contaminated wall inside your cafe creates dust inside the contained area, we can use the vacuum to suck it up so that we can help prevent mold spores from becoming airborne and spreading.

If you ever suffer from mold contamination inside your cafe in Englewood Cliffs or Tenafly, call SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482. Once we finish your restoration project, your restaurant will be restored to its preloss state, "Like it never even happened."

Teaneck Business Proprietors Count on SERVPRO for Blood and Trauma Removal

9/4/2019 (Permalink)

Small Logo-Wrapped SERVPRO Vehicle Parked When in Need of Blood or Trauma Cleanup with Empathy--Call SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood for Professional Help

Professional Blood Cleanup Services in Teaneck

Unexpected trauma, unfortunately, can occur anywhere and at any time in Teaneck. No industries are immune, including industrial, retail, dining, healthcare, school, and recreational venues, among others. When an accident or tragedy involves blood loss or other bodily fluids, conventional cleaning protocols are inadequate. These substances are considered biohazards, and you need appropriately trained and certified technicians to help with the removal and disinfection procedures. Our team can help.

Bloodborne Pathogens Threaten Health and Welfare in the Workplace
When you manage a health club and fitness center in Teaneck, blood cleanup can be an issue after an injury or accident. Blood is a biohazard, no matter how the loss occurred. A slip and fall by a pool, collision on the basketball court, or accident in the food preparation area of the snack bar can all result in significant blood loss. Like any public place, criminal activity also can increase the chance of a traumatic injury resulting in the need for professional blood removal and sanitization. We are coached to act with empathy and compassion for difficult situations.
OSHA, State, and Local Requirements
Your health club employees are at risk of occupational exposure to human blood or other potentially infectious materials. The Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) mandates specific protocols to address these concerns. State and local health rules also apply for blood cleanup and the disposal of this hazardous waste. SERVPRO management and biohazard technicians are trained and certified in the applicable protocols. We can clean blood and other fluids thoroughly, protecting individuals from the hazards resulting from contact.
SERVPRO Has the Equipment, Tools, and Products Mandated for Blood Cleanup
Standard precautions include personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves, clothing, masks, eye protection, and face shields, to protect from exposure to infectious diseases. SERVPRO technicians wear PPE during blood cleanup. We establish a containment area during the project to prevent the spread of the blood or other fluids. Often we seal off the space with plastic sheeting and air scrubbers to limit airborne migration of any contaminants. The cleaners and disinfectants we use are tested and registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), capable of eliminating the pathogens blood can carry.
SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood offers the specialized equipment, products, and specific training needed for commercial blood cleanup. We are available to arrange biohazard mitigation and remediation 24/7 at (201) 266-0482.

Flooding Can Cause Damage To Your Englewood Gas Station

7/15/2019 (Permalink)

You can reach us 24/7 at (201) 266-0482. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

How To Manage Commercial Flood Damage In Your Englewood Gas Station

The intensity and frequency of storms are increasing, and they often cause severe destruction to buildings and facilities. Flooding can affect the operation of fuel tanks and electric pumps, bringing business in your gas station to a halt. Water and debris could enter underground storage tanks through openings like vent pipes, fill pipes, sumps, covers, ruined tank walls and loose fittings.

The worst risk to a gas station is buoyancy, meaning that if the underground storage tanks are half-empty or empty and end up underwater, they can be subject to buoyant forces that offset the restraint of pavement, backfill, or hold-down straps, causing the reservoirs to shift from their location. To manage commercial flood damage in your Englewood gas station, you need prompt water removal, dry out and eventual restoration services to mitigate acute destruction and address complications linked to prolonged exposure to water and moisture.

Like many gas stations, you may have a convenience store that sells drinks, snacks, and car supplies. The floodwaters can cause loss of inventory, food spoilage, and equipment failures. A storm poses a significant risk to gas stations and convenience stores because lighter materials are usually used to build them, meaning that they are susceptible to destruction and require prompt repairs to limit losses to the owner. SERVPRO franchise professionals can help you minimize business risk and downtime.

After the floodwaters recede, there could be standing silt and debris on the floor of the convenience store, the forecourt where customers refuel vehicles and other areas of your gas station. We can use rakes and shovels to remove them. If there is standing water, our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) can begin the water extraction process quickly using portable pumps to remove as much water as possible from the floors, including the restricted areas. We dump the wastewater appropriately, like in a sanitary sewer.

Our SERVPRO crews also use air moving and dehumidification equipment to dry out the affected areas. We can position enough air movers to create adequate airflow across the damp areas. Our technicians maintain a balance between the air movers and dehumidifiers to dry a structure and its contents effectively. Since floodwater usually contains microbes, our technicians can use EPA-approved disinfectants to sanitize the areas the water was touching before we extracted it. We can also deodorize your business premises using equipment like:

• Thermal foggers
• Hydroxyl generators
• Ultra Low Volume (ULV) foggers

If floodwaters have entered your gas station, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood is ready to assist you to remove the water and dry out the affected areas. You can reach us 24/7 at (201) 266-0482. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Hiring Professionals for Flood Damage to a Clothing Store in Englewood Helps Avoid Lost Revenues

Some of the most harmful effects of flood damage to service sector businesses come from the income and customers lost during and after a disaster. With the flow of customers stopped or slowed, it can be difficult for many store owners to stay afloat as expenses mount and savings dwindle. SERVPRO provides fast and non-intrusive damage mitigation and restoration services for businesses in need, and our 24/7 phone lines ensure that we arrive Faster To Any Size Disaster. Without a professional restoration service, you may find your customers dwindling thanks to these reasons.

Unsightly Appearances

Clothing stores in Englewood with flood damaged interiors may drive away customers thanks to the visible scars and signs of damage evident throughout the establishment. When a patron sees warped carpeting, discolored materials, flood-stained walls, and other signs of a past incident, they begin to make assumptions that the business is unclean or unable to maintain a positive appearance. SERVPRO helps to make the place look "Like it never even happened." ensuring that customers continue to think positively of their experiences in your store.

Drawn-Out Repairs

Handling repairs on your own or through a non-specialist company may seem like an easy way to save money, but as these less-qualified repair personnel inevitably take more time to achieve the same standards as our expert technicians, the costs can add up quickly. With signs of work being done to the establishment, many potential customers may not even enter the building, even if you choose to keep doors open. We prioritize speed in our work so as to not be a burden on your daily business.

Regulatory Violations

Standards for sanitation and safety may mandate that you take care of any needed restorations quickly and thoroughly lest the location be hit with fines and even possible closure. As time goes on, mold and fungal growth that can cause health effects may create even more problems with regulatory agencies.

SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood provides 24/7 emergency flood damage mitigation and restoration services. Call us at (201) 266-0482.

SERVPRO Provides Bergen County Small Businesses with Mold Cleanup and Remediation

Moisture and Mold in Your Bergen County Book Store? Fast, Fast, Fast--Call SERVPRO for Remediation

Common Challenges During Commercial Mold Remediation in Bergen County

Mold develops easily when a building has persistent water leaks or the relative humidity levels exceed 60%. Water spills can also lead to mold infestation if cleanup and drying efforts are inadequate. When mold develops in offices or other similar businesses sharing space, the owners encounter several challenges in the process of eradicating it. With our professional remediation services, you can navigate through the infestation with minimal challenges.
Testing is one issue that can complicate commercial mold remediation in Bergen County. Mold tends to develop in concealed sections of the property such as wall cavities first. One of the early signs of mold is a musty smell, but in shared spaces, there is a need to identify the exact location, so many people spend considerable amounts of money on tests to confirm the location. Our AMRT, Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians, understand that mold is a sign of underlying moisture problems. We can, therefore, help you avoid wasting money by looking for the cause. We use different moisture detection tools including thermal cameras that help identify wetness in concealed spaces. Thermo-hygrometers help us check the relative humidity levels in and outside affected areas.
Mold remediation involves some level of tear down of building materials on walls and other surfaces. Finishes like paint may also come off as the workers scrub off mold residues from surfaces. Hiring different teams to rebuild the areas torn down during the remediation can drive costs higher than expected. Our SERVPRO technicians handle the entire process from clean up to rebuilding and refinishing the affected surfaces.
Mold affects all organic items in properties including furnishings, fabrics such as draperies, and even books. Many older retail shops have circulation which can lead to excess moisture, and then the mold colonization. Cleanup and restoration is, therefore, an extensive exercise which can take long when limited resources are available. Our SERVPRO technicians work as a team, so we have a sufficient workforce to tackle every aspect of the project including moving items and rearranging the place. We also use advanced equipment such as soda blasters to remove residues from structural components. By creating exclusion zones with plastic sheets, we can work on affected areas without disrupting your daily activities.
In case of mold infestation in your workplace, call SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood to help with remediation. You can reach us at (201) 266-0482 any time.

Today, businesses invest in fireproof cabinets. They do this to prevent the complete loss of documents in case of commercial fire damage in Teaneck. As you already know, not all businesses store their information in the cloud. There are those who prefer storing documents within the office. By investing in fireproof filing cabinets, businesses can prevent damage from water, smoke, and fire. During fire damage remediation, SERVPRO experts can help salvage the office documents.

If the fire was extensive, salvaging your office furniture can be difficult. If it was not, SERVPRO experts can help salvage the furniture. In case of emergencies, we deal with fire, water, soot, and smoke damages. To help you salvage your expensive office furniture, here is what you should do.

Remove the furniture from the office but do not dry it in the sun. Doing so may cause the wood to twist or bend. Instead, place your furniture in a dry and well-ventilated area. You can open the windows or use our dehumidifiers to dry it slowly. After drying, have the furniture cleaned with mild detergent and water.

3.Computers and Networking equipment
Fire, smoke, and soot can damage the internal components of a PC, laptop or router. Smoke and soot stick quickly on components such as the circuit board, fan and heat sinks. When soot mixes with accumulated dust, it forms sponges.

To salvage your computer, shut off the electricity from the mains and unplug it. Place it in a well-ventilated area where a computer professional can blow out the soot, smoke, and dust. Remember, to use anti-static safeguards.

At SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood, we are the best commercial fire damage, specialists. Not only can we help you salvage your possessions but we can help with remediation too. Call our 24/7 emergency line at (201) 266-0482.

Commercial Water Damage Technicians in New Milford Explain Dehumidification

A broken water pipe at your commercial facility can cause a great deal of water damage. Contact SERVPRO for efficient remediation.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Water Damage at Your Commercial Storage Facility

Sometimes problems can take place with severe weather, water pipes, or appliances that negatively affect your New Milford storage complex. Excessive moisture can cause problems with building materials and contents inside your storage business units. If organic materials or contents get affected and stay wet for more than 48 hours, the development and spreading of mold can occur.

Removing moisture as quickly as possible is essential to prevent issues in the future. During any commercial water damage in New Milford, extraction and drying take place to reduce moisture levels as quickly as possible. While the work occurs, measures get taken to reduce a loss of business.
The number one priority when handling problems at your place of business is the safety of your customers and employees. Our SERVPRO technicians often change the way they conduct restoration procedures to ensure safety at your company's property and reduce any loss of income. Any known safety hazards get repaired immediately, or the area gets blocked off and marked with caution tape.

Once our SERVPRO technicians are confident that the work area is safe, the extraction stage begins. First, any standing water that is two inches or deeper gets removed using a submersible pump. Then, specialized extraction equipment gets used to remove moisture from any carpet or contents containing upholstery or any other fabric materials.

After our SERVPRO technicians extract all of the water their advanced equipment allows, we begin rapidly drying out structural materials and contents inside your storage units. When drying buildings, we use the advanced technology of the latest air moving and dehumidification equipment to increase the rate of evaporation. Air movers create air circulation while dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air and lower the relative humidity inside the structure.

Dehumidifiers dispense moisture out of the air in liquid form while they exhaust out hot, dry air for the air movers to utilize as well. Refrigerant dehumidifiers use chilled coils to cause water to condense out of the wet air. Desiccant dehumidifiers pull air across water absorbing silica gel, then heat up the gel to release the moisture into liquid form.

Desiccant dehumidifiers are mostly used in specialty drying situations. When materials like concrete get very wet, desiccant systems work better to pull out the moisture. If you ever have to deal with wet contents and structural materials at your place of business, call SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482.

Combatting Commercial Mold Damage in Your Englewood Warehouse

2/19/2018 (Permalink)

When moisture forms on surfaces, any microbes present can become active and begin to grow and spread.

SERVPRO Offers Thorough Commercial Mold Remediation

Mold can grow anywhere and on almost any material, including the metal sheeting used in many Englewood warehouses. When condensation forms on surfaces, any microbes present easily become active, quickly growing and multiplying.

When temperature fluctuations occur in Englewood warehouses, commercial mold damage can get a boost because of the gathering of moisture droplets on metal surfaces. Because moisture tends to accumulate in the same locations repeatedly, any microbes in the area receive an ongoing supply that permits continual growth. These microorganisms continue to grow and soon reproduce via the release of spores into the air.

Once in the air, spores travel along the air currents already in the warehouse. If these spores land in a spot that contains moisture, new growth can rapidly happen. The mold remediation experts at SERVPRO hold certificates from the IICRC. Mold damage can affect not only your building but the contents inside. Removing mold growths found on non-porous items helps to reduce the overall microbial population.

At SERVPRO, we understand that any interruption of your warehouse operations by either our working on-site or the effects mold causes to your inventory can create severe financial trouble for your business. Our workers receive training on how to best work alongside our customers' employees in all types of situations. When finished products and raw materials become covered in mold, extraction methods using HEPA-filtered vacuums can often provide excellent results. However, at times, new packaging can work better. Cleaning inventory may not suffice in some situations. Reboxing and rebagging of items may provide much better results.

No matter what your warehouse' unique needs might be, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood can help provide the services needed. Our Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT) is always ready to help ensure the best handling of your facility to contain any size mold damage situation. Contact us at (201) 266-0482, day or night, 365 days a year so we can start remediation services.

Commercial Water Removal in New Milford

1/24/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO works quickly to remove water and restore historical buildings after commercial water damage.

Preserving Historic Commercial Buildings after Water Damage

New Milford has an interesting story and is blessed with many quaint and elegant public and commercial buildings with historic pedigrees. When one of these significant buildings experiences a water event, we have the trained technicians and cutting-edge equipment to remove the moisture and dry out the structure fast.

Water damage is hazardous for any commercial building, but for the historic buildings of New Milford, water removal must occur as quickly and expertly as possible. Centuries of use and the exquisite detailing in many of the premises make these edifices very valuable indeed. The age of the structural components suggests that the damage water may do is very troubling, as most items cannot be replaced. Our focus is on restoration, making our services a good fit.

Although water removal seems straightforward, it is crucial that the equipment be top notch and in excellent repair. The operation is most efficient when the technician is trained and certified and aware of the complications an older structure may present. SERVPRO technicians undergo a rigorous training curriculum relating to water removal and applied drying. Throughout their employment with our company, all technicians continually enhance their understanding through continuing education courses. We send our employees to the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training, considered the determiner of the industry’s best practices.

Our crew assesses the condition of the area where standing water needs removal. We look for any structural weaknesses or other concerns. If more than two inches of water is present, pumps do the work first. Then extractors suction the rest of the visible water. Our crew members use moisture meters and scanning devices to find hidden pockets of water. No building handles pooled up water behind walls or in brickwork well, but an older space risks more because of its historic significance. Obscured water is skillfully removed by drilling holes or using wand attachments.

Then we deliver air movers and dehumidifiers to the scene, as well as heaters in some cases. Experienced SERVPRO project managers determine drying goals, and the airflow and dehumidifier settings are chosen so that the structures dry appropriately. If heat is added, the balance is reconfigured. We do not want to do further damage in our efforts to remediate.

SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood awaits your call, up to the challenge of restoring older commercial buildings damaged by water. Please call us at (201) 266-0482 to get the historical preservation going.

Home Furnishing Store in Bergen County Needs Multifaceted Water Damage Remediation

1/4/2018 (Permalink)

If the sprinkler system goes off and causes water damage to your commercial space, call SERVPRO to remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Offers Professional and Thorough Water Damage Remediation Services to Large Commercial Spaces

Some of the automatic safety features in modern commercial buildings can cause unanticipated adverse outcomes. Systems intended to monitor smoke and heat in a Bergen County retail outlet may misinterpret data received and commence a response that is damaging to the business or retail space. A professional restoration effort offers the best outcome when such a miscommunication happens.

A modular furnishing and household goods warehouse store in Bergen County deals with significant water damage throughout the several levels of the business after the sprinkler system activates due to a malfunction. Thousands of gallons of water spray walls, floors, and sample furnishings. Appliances, housewares, and linens all suffer water damage. We have the training and the experience to manage this type of large-scale commercial water damage.

SERVPRO sends seasoned project managers and crews to evaluate the tasks needed to resolve this complicated situation. Structural water damage restoration requires a process that starts with water removal and ends with appropriately planned drying of building material and fixtures. We use pumps and extractors and then plot out a strategy of air mover, heater, and dehumidifier positioning to reduce the remaining moisture content quickly. Members of our crew consistently and continuously monitor moisture levels to ensure we meet our drying goals. The large scale of the drying plan is managed by designating sectors and ensuring employees in each sector communicate progress to the project management team.

As we work on the structural water damage issues with a portion of our workforce, other SERVPRO crews devise ways to stage the damaged contents, so appropriate decisions to restore, discard, or take another approach are made department by department. Packing out some of the inventory to a dry area within the commercial building or off-site is likely as options are reviewed by the business and its insurers.

Water damage evaluation of the contents and inventory requires collaboration among our crews, local and corporate business management representatives, and the company’s insurance carriers. SERVPRO offers a range of specialized water damage and drying services. Some are completed off-site like document freeze-drying, laundering, and dry cleaning. Others happen at the commercial site, including cleaning and drying of non-porous furnishings and household goods.

Using a full-spectrum restoration company like SERVPRO is a wise decision, even if a business is tempted to use its in-house staff or cleaning service. We have the certified technicians and equipment onboard at the time of the crisis. We also have access to help from a nationwide network of other experienced and well-equipped restoration companies if additional help is needed. No on the job training in water damage repair is necessary as we prepare routinely for this kind of a disaster.

When sprinkler systems threaten to ruin rather than save your retail business, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood is ready to respond. Call (201) 266-0482 to have a scalable team of water damage experts on-site as soon as possible.

4/28/2017 (Permalink)

Sharing a meal is a favorite way to spend time with others, so being closed can result in regular customers looking elsewhere, never to return again.

Broken Pipes And Commercial Water Damage

A broken pipe in the bathroom or kitchen area can create a disaster in the best of eateries. When flooding happens, profits come to a screeching halt. Getting everything back to normal needs to happen fast.

New Milford has many beautiful places to visit with friends, but commercial water damage can keep patrons away. Sharing a meal is a favorite way to spend time with others, so being closed can result in regular customers looking elsewhere, never to return again. We can help by decreasing the amount of time you are closed for repairs after your business has flooded. Even if the flood came from a dirty source, like sewer backup, we are qualified to bring your establishment back up to code. One thing to remember is that even if the water came out clean, that water can quickly and easily become contaminated by cleaning chemicals stored in bathrooms or closets.

Our applied structural drying technician (ASD) knows the best ways to reach maximum dryness in areas that tend to latch onto and hold or retain water and moisture. When these materials are allowed to retain higher moisture content than they should be, the area they are in can never attain its intended level of dryness. Our ASD works in conjunction with our water damage restoration technician (WRT) in restoring your diner or cafe to a functional state.

SERVPRO understands that simply cleaning up the water and drying your business out is not enough to get you back up and operating again like normal. Anything that was damaged by the water must be repaired for restoration to be complete. When there has been a flood in your eatery, just call us, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood. SERVPRO is locally owned and operated, so we know the area ad how much your business means to not only you but to the community in general. We are always ready to take your call at (201) 266-0482.

In New Milford, SERVPRO Restores A Clothing Store After Water Damage

SERVPRO Can Mitigate Commercial Water Damage to Your Retail Shop

There's not a clothing store in the state that hasn't dealt with a loss of property from the water. At first, most owners don't even think of it as a problem except to remove standing water and dry out the floor.

Commercial water damage in New Milford isn't that simple to fix. Clothing has to be dried quickly to preserve color. If the water that has soaked the items contains soil, soot or other contaminants, it will have to be cleaned as well. SERVPRO has the training and inventory of cleaning agents to ensure restoration is accomplished as quickly as possible in your New Milford home or business.

Simple detergents are fine if the water damage comes from clean or uninfected water. When it comes to clothing, even a microscopic amount of mold or other contamination can render them worthless. This isn't a problem if it's a sweater or two, but for a clothing store, losing an entire season's worth of inventory is a crushing blow. To make sure that doesn't happen, our technicians use disinfectants and sanitizers to ensure property is safe to wear as well as being visually clean.

Our disinfectants destroy over 90 percent of the organisms they come in contact with. They are excellent to use on clothing and accessories when mixed with the proper amount of water. Some of the types we use are alcohols, chlorines, and phenols. Sanitizers are excellent to reduce microbe (mold spore) levels. This restores areas where clothing is stored and displayed back to safe amounts. They are useful for work surfaces, clothing racks and even hangars that may have become contaminated. Bear in mind; that water damaged clothing and fabrics typically lose value and must be displayed as damaged merchandise.

It is in everyone's best interest to help our fellow businesses reopen their doors to the community. As a locally owned franchise, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood is ready to help every clothing, and other retail shops get back on their feet. Call us now at (201) 266-0482 to get started.
