When A Storm Affects Your Business

Flood Business Park Faster in any disaster

SERVPRO of Southwest Portland knows that disaster doesn't just wait to happen when you're awake. Things happen at all times of the day and night. Mitigation has to happen as quickly as possible to keep things from getting worse.  For example, mold can start to grow in a little as 24 hours. When you have water damage I doubt you're going to want to hear from the company you called that you can't be out for a few days. Worse might be when you have something happen in the middle of the night and all you get is the answering machine from a company. 

SERVPRO of Southwest Portland will be there to answer your call no matter what time of day or night.

Water leads to mold unless you get it right away.

A SERVPRO tech and customer talking Call us as soon as you have water damage.

Mold can produce allergens and irritants and has the potential to cause other health effects. Mold can spread quickly through your Baltimore's Inner Harbor home or business in as little as 48 hours. If you suspect that your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property. If mold is found, we have the training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned

CSC Description of Services

Overview of the various services offered as a part of the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program.

The Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned (CSC) program is centered around the three C’s – Consult, Clean, and Certify. The production Division needs to understand the various services that your franchise is offering local businesses through the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program.

Consult

Your franchise can partner with the property owner to: [1] evaluate their current cleaning processes, [2] make recommendations of how they can improve their existing cleaning process, and [3] propose additional services (Standard Service or Enhanced Service) that SERVPRO can offer to minimize the potential transmission of COVID-19. You can also suggest how frequently these services should occur. Higher frequency service is recommended for businesses with high traffic and an inability to implement health screening of people entering the business.

Standard Service

Standard services focus on cleaning and disinfectant application to frequently contacted touch points such as doorknobs, light switches, countertops, keyboards, and desks to minimize the potential transmission of COVID-19. This includes cleaning visibly soiled touch points, disinfecting of nonporous touch points, sanitizing porous touch points, and wiping/cleaning surfaces to eliminate product streaking and/or residues.

Enhanced Service

Enhanced services build upon standard services by adding cleaning and disinfectant application to less frequently contacted touch points such as the front, sides, and backs of desks, counters, tables, vanities, or equipment to minimize the potential transmission of COVID-19. This includes cleaning visibly soiled surfaces, disinfecting nonporous, sanitizing of porous, and wiping/cleaning surfaces to eliminate product streaking and/or residues. 

Emergency Service

Your franchise can perform Enhanced Service whenever the customer needs you, specifically when they have a confirmed COVID-19 case. This may involve more cleaning since their internal cleaning may not have occurred due to the incident.

Test

Testing is not required to utilize the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned window cling or table tents. Your franchise can choose to conduct testing to evaluate and document the effectiveness of the service, such as [1] utilization of an ATP meter for general bio-contamination detection designed to evaluate the level of surface cleanliness and overall hygiene of biohazard impacted materials, or [2] utilization of new surface tests specifically focused on the presence of COVID-19.

Fire In Assisted Living Center Fire and water damage in a local assisted living centers affecting multiple floors.

This multi-story assisted living center on the hills of downtown Portland experienced a fire break out in one of the resident's kitchens. The sprinklers in the building went off to put out the initial flames and then fire crews arrived to cover the rest. By the time the fire had been put out five floors had significant amounts of water damage. SERVPRO of Southwest Portland went in to first remove the water damage that had occurred and then start to clear out the initial problem, the fire and soot damage. We placed equipment throughout elevators, hallways, resident rooms, and dining area. After the meters read the floor, walls, drywall, and carpets were dry. We began to go through salvageable items from the fire and start to clear the soot out of the room. This was a long process, but the finished product looked good as new! 

Commercial Water Loss Affecting Four Businesses

Commercial Water Loss One business affected by the loss

A water loss started from a sink in an upstairs office bathroom. The water continued to travel into the adjacent business office and then down to the offices below them. There was standing water in both of the downstairs businesses and all of the flooring and textiles throughout, were made of different materials. Two server rooms were affected by the loss so electric was a huge concern. Making sure water didn't get into the equipment and make matters worse. Major water extraction was necessary right away. Some of the flooring was natural textiles, so proper care for the specific material was also necessary for drying. The water was removed and drying equipment was placed for four days to dry the rest of walls, floors, and ceiling areas that came in contact with the water.

Office Space Water Damage

Individual Office Space Individual office showing the water damage on the carpet.

During the wet, and rainy season here in the Pacific Northwest, we sometimes get dumped on with large amounts of rain at once. This was an office building that had large amounts of water come through the front doors and across the carpet into other individual office spaces. Since there is no turning the water "off" at the source, different steps are taken to prevent further damage to the structure, equipment, power sources, and personal belongings. With the help of a flood truck to remove the standing water, and redirection of free-flowing water, we were able to start setting up our drying equipment for the interior of the office building. The drying equipment was set to dry overnight so the staff could still work during their regular business hours.

Containment For Demolition

Containment For Demolition Containment setup for demolition in an office.

Throughout this office, there was water damage that affected the carpets and up the sides of each wall, especially in the hallway. We set up containment for demolition around certain work areas so no office equipment would be compromised from the demo. Each individual office was tested for water damage from floor to ceiling and the affected drywall was then cut out to be disposed of and replaced down the road with all new drywall. We had to rip out the carpets and the thin carpet padding down the hallways and in one of the rooms due to a mold test that came back positive. The rest of the carpet throughout the office we were able to dry down and restore back to the original condition. 

Store Flood

Carpet Water Damage Water through the front of the structure soaked the carpet.

The front rooms of this business were affected by heavy and quick water coming in from outside. SERVPRO of Southwest Portland was on the job to stop the source of the water, and in this case, it was coming from the store's front wall. The next step to mitigation was to help move furniture and office equipment out of the affected rooms into the other portion of the building. Roughly 200 square feet of carpet was affected by this water leak, so the plan of action was to set up dehumidification in heavily soaked rooms and air movers around the office to quickly dry the carpets. Once completely dry, thorough cleaning was done to the hard floors and the carpet to restore the business back to original condition.

The ceiling of the Pioneer Place Shopping Mall was compromised by a broken pipe. The main level of the food court had a few inches of standing water that needed to be removed. Since the water damage was in an area where mall traffic is heavy, the water needed to be removed as quickly as possible so the businesses could operate during open hours. The water loss happened on the third floor making the affected space quite large. Our team was able to locate the site where the water was coming from and were able to turn it off while they worked on getting the standing water picked up. Our team was able to have the water cleaned up, demolition work done, and everything restored back to preloss condition the same day the loss occurred!
