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

3/5/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial 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.

If your Teaneck office is damaged by fire, you need to rely on commercial fire damage experts. As professionals, we are ready to partner with you and minimize any interruption in your business.

Fortunately, working with SERVPRO experts can help you salvage several items.

Here are some of the items you can salvage.

1.Office documents
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.

2.Furniture
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.

After a Broken Sprinkler System, Commercial Water Cleanup Dries Out Your Office Building in Teaneck

9/16/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial After a Broken Sprinkler System, Commercial Water Cleanup Dries Out Your Office Building in Teaneck When sprinklers fail, they dump out a great deal of water in your office area. Contact SERVPRO to dry out and remediate the damage.

Team SERVPRO Understands that Water Damage in an Office Setting Needs Immediate Attention

A sprinkler system in your office building helps reduce the severity of a fire while remaining cost-effective. However, your office building in Teaneck might suffer problems if a fitting, joint, or sprinkler head suffers damage. This can happen in different situations and circumstances. Excessive water does not always spill out from a sprinkler head itself.
 
When a situation develops involving faulty installation or corrosion of sprinkler systems, broken feed lines, or even vandalism in your building, commercial water cleanup in Teaneck can help make things normal again. Even if the water seems minimal, when it covers a large area, SERVPRO can help get things dried out quickly. We have the equipment needed to perform large-scale operations when needed and can tailor our services to smaller jobs, as well.
 
Large areas that sustain intrusive water need help drying out. Evaporating water simply moves from one area to another. Several fans might dry an area, only to find that condensation and water accumulation occurs elsewhere in your building. SERVPRO's goal is to make it “Like it never even happened” for you. When we arrive, we start setting up the desiccant machines, air scrubbers, air movers, and extraction equipment we need to get your property dry again efficiently.
 
With a rapid response, we can keep the risk of water and mold damage minimized by removing visible water before it can soak into materials. Extracting the moisture that already seeped into carpets, office dividers, furniture, and other furnishings happens quickly when we use air blowers and dehumidifiers. Desiccant machines also help immensely in removing water vapor from the air. Once we remove it, this moisture can no longer find its way back into your office's environment and cause problems.
 
Once we remove water from your building's interior, bad odors might become a problem. This often occurs solely because of a multitude of chemical reactions that take place in a variety of materials. While these do not necessarily mean anything sustains undetected damage, it can still create an undesirable scent. Our IICRC-certified Odor Control Technician (OCT) can assist you with this universal aspect of undesired water and its effects.
 
SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood can help get things back to how you want them effectively, helping to minimize any related damages. We serve businesses in and around Englewood Cliffs and Tenafly, as well. Call us at (201) 266-0482 to reach us whenever you have an emergency requiring water cleanup and removal.

Commercial 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)

Commercial Combatting Commercial Mold Damage in Your Englewood Warehouse 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

Commercial Commercial Water Removal in New Milford 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)

Commercial Home Furnishing Store in Bergen County Needs Multifaceted Water Damage Remediation 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.

Commercial Water Removal In New Milford Pizzerias

11/6/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Commercial Water Removal In New Milford Pizzerias Water damage is a common problem for 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 is 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, SERVPRO knows 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, SERVPRO 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.

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.

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.
 
We know that 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 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 our job. 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 out of your premises before drying begins.
 
When it is time to dry your property, we carry out 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 once more.

Broken Pipes Lead To Commercial Water Damage In Cafes And Diners In New Milford

Commercial Broken Pipes Lead To Commercial Water Damage In Cafes And Diners In New Milford 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.

Small Leaks In Your Waiting Room's Aquarium Can Cause Flood Damage To Your Englewood Practice

2/15/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Small Leaks In Your Waiting Room's Aquarium Can Cause Flood Damage To Your Englewood Practice When the water spills out of a fish tank, what was once a beautiful centerpiece in your waiting area quickly becomes a disgusting and flooded mess.

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. SERVPRO 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.

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.

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 into 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.

Commercial Commercial Water Damage in New Milford 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.
