Keep your Business Mold-Free

8/15/2022 (Permalink)

Machine pumping out mold from closet Mold grows anywhere there is moisture and oxygen. The mold spores are invisible to humans, so you may not even know when mold takes over.

Mold grows in places you cannot even see, and it sometimes grows increasingly worse before it’s noticeable. Mold, however, pollutes the air and can threaten the structural integrity of a structure.

When mold grows on a commercial property, it can be devastating for business owners as they must shut down operations to decontaminate the business. These tips will help prevent mold from growing in your business.

Mold grows anywhere there is moisture and oxygen. The mold spores are invisible to humans, so you may not even know when mold takes over.

  1. Use a dehumidifier: It can be challenging to maintain proper humidity inside your business. To ensure 50% humidity, install commercial dehumidifiers throughout the property.
  2. Repair plumbing issues: As soon as you notice a leak in your business from a roof, pipe, or window, call a restoration company to mend the damages. The longer you wait, the higher the chance of mold growth.
  3. Ensure proper ventilation: If not properly maintained, mold will grow around HVAC systems. Mold spores can spread from vents, so a clean HVAC system will keep mold out.
  4. Stay Vigilant: It’s not easy to notice mold growth in its early stages. By inspecting your property frequently and monitoring high moisture levels, you can notice mold before it becomes a problem. Early signs of mold growth include stains on walls, smells, and marks on floors.
  5. Call a professional: If the mold has spread or you can’t find the origin of the problem, call a professional mold remediation company to assist you.

Fire damage on rooftop of business park Fire damage on rooftop of business park.

Soot, aka that black residue left behind by fire and smoke, is made up of infinitesimally small carbon particulates resulting from incomplete combustion from substances like wood, oil, or coal. 

Soot contains harmful properties from whatever was burned. This can include chemicals, metals, soils, and dust which cause a lingering black substance and horrible smell that is difficult be rid of.

Sewage backup in your office is not a basic cleaning task. The cleanup process should only be handled by professionals. If signs of sewage backup occur, call SERVPRO of Culver City / Baldwin Hills to return your business to its preloss condition.

Common Causes of Sewer Backup Issues

Sewage issues are difficult to recover from, however, knowing how they occur is the first step to preventing the worst from happening. Some common reasons why commercial properties experience sewage backups are:

  • Stress on your plumbing and sewer system from soil settling in and around your building.
  • Misaligned connections or cracked pipes within your plumbing system.
  • Tree roots infiltrating plumbing / pipes.
  • Irregular maintenance and cleaning. Commercial settings usually experience high-volume and require regular maintenance to make sure facilities stay functioning.

Preventative Measures for Sewage Backup

Here are some preventative maintenance measures that can be taken to lessen the impact of what may occur. See below for suggested guidelines:

  • Semi-annual / Annual plumbing and sewer inspections.
  • Make sure you use a water pressure reducing valve to limit stress on your building's system.
  • Add pop-up sewer release valves if your plumbing system does not have them.

It is difficult and potentially unsafe to deal with sewage backup yourself and is a job that should be left to the professionals. With SERVPROs expert processes, training, and customer experience, we are here to help!

Hydrometer Reading by SERVPRO Technician Hydrometer Reading by SERVPRO Technician

Property damage adds up fast. Whether you are dealing with a burst pipe or a flash flood, water fills up your house within minutes and spreads through each room, causing significant structural damage. Know what to do when your property floods.

Stop the Water Supply

Try to identify the source and prevent additional flooding from happening. It is important to remember to stay safe. If the cause of loss is in unsafe area call a professional to assist you.

If the leak is coming from a flash flood or natural disaster, there could be little you can do to stop the flow of water. However, you may be able to slow the water down. A best practice method for minimizing impact is to start from the bottom and work your way up. If you can, try to place sandbags around the base of your external doorways. This is a good method to reduce flood impact.

Reach Out to a Professional

Remember you are not alone. We are here to help. When the unexpected does happen count on SERVPRO of Culver City / Baldwin Hills to guide and support you through the recovery process and help get your home or business back up and running again as quickly as possible.

This fertility clinic suffered a large water loss due to a broken toilet supply line. Our technicians had to work carefully and quickly with this high-end fertility clinic because relocation of the IFV clinic was not an option nor was it allowed. The business was to remain open during business hours, which meant that our crews worked after business hours from 5PM to 6AM, to disturb the business.  Every morning when our large loss response team left, no one would have ever known they were there all night taking care of the water damage that was in the clinic.  We have the ability to accommodate any emergency circumstance such as this one where we had to work over night with a deadline in under a week to ensure that the company was able to still run smoothly and take care of their patients.

5 Reasons to Keep Your Ductwork Clean in Culver City

1/28/2020 (Permalink)

The air quality in your Culver City home and place of business is important.  Keeping dust, pollen, pet dander, and other irritants out of the air you breathe involves more than changing the air filter.  What about the air ducts?  Contaminants collect in the duct system too, and regular cleaning of the air channel is important.

1. Improves your health- poor indoor air quality ranks among the top five environmental risks to your health. 

2. Energy consumption- clean ductwork helps lower your utility bill and helps your HVAC unit last longer. 

3. Smelly air- odors continue to plague your home long after you remove the offensive item.

4. Moldy reasons- microbial growth can grow in your duct system especially if your home suffered recent water damage from flooding or foundation cracks. 

5. Call a professional - SERVPRO of Culver City/Baldwin Hills are the professionals you want to seek!

You need to know the air you breathe at home is free from contaminants. What you don't know will hurt you. Make sure you contact a certified HVAC technician for ductwork cleaning. 

Water Damage Prevention for Commercial Buildings in Culver City and Baldwin Hills

1/27/2020 (Permalink)

uniformed workers cleaning water damage at a factory All buildings are different, but any could be at risk for water damage without a regular inspection routine.

The components of a commercial building envelope are as varied as its occupants and uses. Brick and glass, bitumen and composite panels, marble and stone, all can be used. And, all respond differently to the forces of wind, rain, snow, and ice.  Ideally, the envelope ensures that the weather stays on the outside, where it belongs, and that the people and property inside are protected. One of the best ways to minimize a building’s risk of water damage is to develop, maintain, and follow a systematic Operations and Maintenance inspection routine that includes all elements of the building envelope.

Follow a Regular Inspection Routine

Monthly:

  • Check all at-grade plumbing systems.
  • Check all at-grade drainage systems.
  • Test basement flood control and sump systems.
  • Replace any leaking fittings or drains immediately, even if small.
  • Does the irrigation system spray water against the foundation wall?
  • Are roof drain outlets clear of debris?
  • Are any water elements at-risk for vandalism?
  • Do downspouts direct water away from the foundation?
  • Investigate the source of any standing water.
