Warning! Water Damage at a Historical San Antonio Facility can Quickly Escalate

10/29/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Warning! Water Damage at a Historical San Antonio Facility can Quickly Escalate Water damage in any part of a historic facility can quickly degrade the property. Contact SERVPRO immediately to mitigate the situation.

San Antonio Landmark Preservation Following Water Damages

For those who reside in the San Antonio area, we take great pride in our nationally recognized landmarks like the Alamo and the Riverwalk. While both of these treasures have been in place for a long time, they are as susceptible to damages from accidents or unexpected incidents the same as other commercial or residential areas throughout the region. Water damages can occur quickly from something as simple as a leaking water fountain or toilet supply line.

With so many commercial properties adorning the Riverwalk, overcoming water damage to this San Antonio landmark must happen quickly. Even with a seemingly smaller incident, water can spread quickly to affect neighboring properties and prove even more challenging to overcome. Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly and have the industry-leading equipment to clean up the mess and restore any damages more effectively than a custodial staff could.

One of the biggest concerns for any business is the loss of customer foot traffic when a water damage situation like this occurs. Our professionals can help to assess the situation immediately upon our arrival to determine if you can continue business as usual while we work to clean up the water. There are instances in which water damage restoration is as simple as drying up the area thoroughly, and this might not always require shutting your doors to the public.

Another thing that you need to consider about the effectiveness of professional restoration services like our SERVPRO team is the rapid response we provide for the incident. Without immediate attention, a low-scale water damage incident could turn into a severe situation that requires many days, or even weeks, to return to original condition. Your fast reaction to the situation can help our emergency response teamwork to keep restoration times to an absolute minimum.

Our SERVPRO of Braun Station franchise takes great pride in serving the commercial properties throughout the city and the landmarks that define our history. Whenever you have to contend with water damages to your facility or your business, give our experts a call at (210) 267-2159.

Immediate Restoration For Water Damage at Your San Antonio Bar

10/11/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Immediate Restoration For Water Damage at Your San Antonio Bar See the SERVPRO team roll past the Tower of the Americas to your water damage incident.

You might find that San Antonio has a nightlife that you cannot find in other cities. From the bustling Riverwalk to the bars and nightclubs throughout the city, there is always somewhere to be when the sun goes down. With steep competition with other bars throughout the city and its surrounding communities, you cannot afford to let an unexpected water incident derail your business. When damage like this occurs, trust in the fast response and experienced techniques of our reliable technicians.

As you might imagine, water damage can have a dramatic effect on your San Antonio business. From the immediate concerns in the loss of customers on a particular day to the grander concerns of the effects that persistent moisture and dampness can have on structural elements and contents of the affected areas, getting the problem resolved requires experience and the right equipment. Our SERVPRO professionals work to live up to our claim that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

One of the first things that you need to appreciate in a water loss incident is the immediate spread of this water damage to the surrounding materials such as your flooring, bar, stools, booths, and more. As these elements absorb the spreading water, they can bloat and distort. Without the ability to get to these materials and pull the moisture out quickly, they might suffer irreparable damage.

Our SERVPRO technicians also worry about the possibility of water penetrating beyond the immediate flooring material and absorbing into subflooring and the supports. This saturation can not only weaken the material itself, but it can also allow for mold and mildew growth. The microbial growth like this can threaten the health of your customers and staff, requiring even more intricate restoration and remediation work before you can re-open your doors again.

The important thing to remember when you get posed with a water damage situation in your bar is to react quickly to get the right personnel working on the problem as quickly as possible. The faster that our SERVPRO of Braun Station specialists can work on the issue, the less time it takes to resolve it. Give us a call anytime you need us at (210) 267-2159.

Fast, Reliable Mold Remediation For Your San Antonio Restaurant

7/17/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Fast, Reliable Mold Remediation For Your San Antonio Restaurant If steamy pots lead to mold damage, contact SERVPRO for fast and reliable mold remediation.

When mold damage threatens your restaurant, count on the SERVPRO team

San Antonio restaurants, bakeries, and other food preparation enterprises know inspections are regularly conducted to ensure public health and safety. Mold growth is one of the negative marks your business can receive, so you want to move on mold remediation before the inspector comes. Stick to creating your delicious savory and sweet treats and hire us to manage the mold.

Mold damage in your San Antonio  bakery and restaurant not only violates health regulations but also repels your customers if they see or hear about it. In a perfect world, your business would never need to deal with mold growth, but the conditions supportive of mold spores germination are common in most food preparation areas. Mold prefers temperatures from 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, but some strains thrive at temperatures as low as 30 or high as 120 degrees. Water, even in the form of steam or high humidity fuels the growth of the fungi, and organic materials offer a food source. All commercial kitchens present this type of environment. We are familiar with the challenges of mold remediation in these circumstances.

Expect SERVPRO mold remediation technicians to assess both the current mold damage and the various sources of moisture observed. Unless your business addresses the moisture issues, mold can recur. In kitchens, one of the essentials is an adequate ventilation system, including exhaust fans that move the steam out of the area. Spills, neglected plumbing leaks, and condensation from coolers, freezers, and ice machines all contribute to the water mold spores seek to absorb.

SERVPRO technicians apply the ANSI/IICRC S520 Standard for Professional Mold Remediation  using the IICRC Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation when responding to your mold emergency. The restoration industry outlines the best practices in this standard and guide, and we as industry leaders follow the recommendations and steps.

We do our best to complete the mold remediation while allowing your business to operate. The SERVPRO team erects physical barriers to contain the moldy area, a zone outside of which your staff and customers remain during the process. Air quality cannot be compromised, so we frequently use negative air pressure machines to prevent the contaminated air from drifting into the rest of your business and that employ HEPA filters to catch airborne debris before venting to the outdoors.

Once contained, our technicians remove the mold, using wiping, scraping, and abrasive techniques like soda blasting. SERVPRO  clears the residues with HEPA filtered vacuums, and bag the debris for disposal according to local codes. EPA-registered antimicrobial formulations treat surfaces to inhibit future mold growth and damage.

Let SERVPRO of Braun Station partner with you when mold damage threatens your food service business. Call us for an evaluation of even a minor infestation at (210) 267-2159 -- the sooner, the better to retain your hard-earned reputation for unique and tasty delicacies.

Keeping Your Home or Business Fresh!

What Is Duct Cleaning?

This process refers to the cleaning of various system components of your heating and cooling system. The components that should be regularly cleaned include grilles, supply and return air ducts, heat exchangers, coils, and unit housing.

When not cleaned, these components can become contaminated with dust, dirt, and pollen. In addition, moisture can even result in mold growth, which often has harmful health effects. A thorough cleaning, however, can prevent such contamination and keep your indoor air at a high quality. 

How Can It Help Remove Foul Odors?

When the ducts are thoroughly cleaned with proper equipment, professionals can remove dander, mold, dust, and other contaminants in your air vents. These particles are generally the cause of foul odors. For example, mold often causes a musty smell, while pet fur and dander trapped in the ducts may cause other odors. To truly remove these smells, the process sanitizes and deodorizes all areas that are affected.

San Antonio Building Safety

8/1/2017 (Permalink)

Building Safety is an opportunity to educate insurance and commercial property professionals, as well as the general public, on “what it takes to create safe, resilient, affordable, and energy efficient homes and buildings,” according to the ICC website.

IMPORTANT TIPS FROM THE ICC
Disaster Safety & Mitigation
  

  • If you live in a high wind or hurricane prone area and do not have tested and code-approved shutters for protection from wind borne debris, consider temporarily protecting your doors and windows by mounting exterior grade, 7/16" minimum thickness plywood and fastening it into place. Visit www.flash.org for
    detailed instructions on how to use plywood for emergency board-up.
  • Consider building or retrofitting to create a tornado-safe room in your home. Follow ICC/NSSA 500 Standard for detailed construction information and to ensure you achieve the highest level of protection for your family.
  • In wildfire prone areas, remove fine (dead grass, leaves, etc.) and coarse fuels (dead twigs, branches, etc.) within 30 feet of a building to create a survivable space in case of wildfire. Be sure to remove dry leaf and pine litter from roofs, rain gutters, decks, and walkways. Follow ICC’s International Wildland-Urban Interface Code®
    for detailed requirements.
  • Flooded roads could have significant damage hidden by floodwaters. Never drive through floodwaters
    or on flooded roads. Do not
    attempt to cross a flowing stream. It takes only six inches of fast flowing water to sweep you off your feet and two feet of water to move an SUV-sized vehicle.

Does Your Business Have a Plan San Antonio?

8/31/2016 (Permalink)

How quickly your company can get back to business after a tornado, fire, or flood often depends on the emergency planning done today.  The regular occurrence of natural disasters demonstrates the importance of being prepared for any emergency.  While each situation is unique, your organization can be better prepared if you plan carefully, put emergency procedures in place, and practice for all kinds of emergencies.  The following are basic measures business owners and managers can take to begin preparing.  A commitment to begin planning today will help support your employees, customers, the community, local economy, and even the country.  It also protects your business investment and gives your company a better chance for survival.

Develop a Business Continuity Plan.

Your organization’s risk needs will vary depending on the specific industry, size, scope and location.  Begin by reviewing your business process flow chart, if one exists, to identify operations critical to survival and recovery.  Carefully assess your internal and external functions to determine which staff, materials, procedures and equipment are absolutely necessary to keep the business operating. You should also establish procedures for succession of management.

Review Insurance Coverage.

Inadequate insurance coverage can lead to major financial loss if your business is damaged, destroyed or simply interrupted for a period of time. Insurance policies vary; check with your agent or provider about things such as physical losses, flood coverage and business interruption.  Understand what your policy does and does not cover.

Prepare your Emergency Plan.

Your employees and co-workers are your business’ most valuable asset. Communication is central before, during and after a disaster. Include emergency information in newsletters, on your company intranet, in periodic employee e-mails and/or other communication tools.

Practice the Emergency Plan.

Some disasters will require employees to leave the workplace quickly. The ability to evacuate workers, customers and visitors effectively can save lives. If your business operates out of more than one location, establish evacuation procedures for each individual building. If your company is in a high-rise building, an industrial park, or even a small strip mall, it is important to coordinate and practice with other tenants or businesses to avoid confusion and potential gridlock.

Secure Your Facility and Equipment.

Install fire extinguishers, smoke alarms and detectors in appropriate places. Secure all entry and exit points and plan for mail safety. Plan what you will do if your building, plant or store is not usable. Secure valuable equipment.

Improve Cyber Security.

Protecting your data and information systems may require specialized expertise, but even the smallest business can be better prepared. Use anti-virus software and keep it up-to-date. Don’t open e-mails from unknown sources. Use hard-to-guess passwords. Protect your computer from intruders by using firewalls. Back up your computer data and download security protection updates known as patches regularly.

San Antonio The Science of Drying

6/1/2016 (Permalink)

Did YOU KNOW there is actually a science behind the process of drying? Having the knowledge of psychrometrics is essential to restoring a water damaged structure to its preloss condition. While your initial reaction may be to grab a few towels to mop up the mess and place a fan or two around the damaged area, your local SERVPRO® of Braun Station Professionals are trained in the science of drying and follow strict industry-approved standards to help lower the chances of any secondary damages. If your business suffers a water damage, your local SERVPRO® of Braun Station Franchise Professional will:
• Inspect the building to detect every component that is wet, to help prevent secondary damage from happening.
• Measure how much moisture is in wet materials and monitor whether the materials are drying properly.
• Speed up Mother Nature by using professional drying equipment.

What exactly does it mean to help “speed up Mother Nature”? A wet building can often dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium. When materials are wet, moisture
will naturally move to drier air at the surface of the material–but only if the air is, indeed, drier.  The only problem is, nature takes too long and secondary damages may occur while the building is drying out.

Your local SERVPRO® of Braun Station Franchise Professionals have the tools and equipment to help Mother Nature along, including equipment to help dry hardwood floors, tough-to-reach spaces inside walls (pictured below), and much more. Your local SERVPRO® of Braun Station Professionals also use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment, and a proven scientific process to help speed the drying of your home or business.

The bottom line? Your local SERVPRO® of Braun Station Franchise Professionals have the training and equipment  to help make water damage “Like it never even happened.”

Spring Cleaning Your Workspace San Antonio

Commercial Spring Cleaning Your Workspace San Antonio San Antonio SERVPRO of Braun Station knows clean

As Spring has sprung, the desire to clean is here too.  We wanted to give you some quick spring cleaning tips for your Bexar County workspace.

·         Divide Your Workspace Into Zones:

Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions.  You may require a workspace for your computer, a library area for your research, a storage area for supplies and a filing area for your archives.  This will provide a foundation for a more efficient use of space.

·         Keep Only What You Need At Arm’s Length:

Boxes of pens, stacks of papers and old coffee cups need to go.  Rid your desk of visual clutter by paring down the items on top to the essentials only.  Supplies paperwork and personal items should be kept in the zones you’ve established for them.

·         Sort Your Catch-All Drawer:

Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, like compartments for paperclips and rubber bands.  Go through the drawer every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn’t being used.

·         Eliminate Digital Clutter:

Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter.  Organize digital files and your e-mail inbox just as you would paper files- with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders.  Also, keep the icons on your desktop to a bare minimum, and trade in sticky notes on your monitor for calendar reminders.

·         Create a Daily Paper System:

Consider creating hanging files or baskets labeled “To Read,” To Do,” and “To File.”  Establish set days for each, so that you don’t get behind or feel the overwhelming need to do everything at once.

·         Disinfect Regularly:

Prevent the buildup of dust, dirt, food stains and fingerprints.  Wipe down your desk, phone, keyboard and monitor once a week with disinfecting wipes.

We hope these tips will help keep your San Antonio workspace clean.  Remember see green, think SERVPRO of Braun Station clean!
