Commercial Clean Up

6/5/2019 (Permalink)

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. 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 or business through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems.
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.
If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Dealing with Commercial Buildings

6/5/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Leavenworth and NW Wyandotte County handles not only residential damage and restoration, but commercial as well.

There are three types of damage for commercial claims: 

Type 1

Type 1 is a small commercial loss typically involving 15,000 square feet or less of affected floor space. If the facility was entirely affected, examples of a small commercial loss may include; a stand-alone retail establishment, a small church, a small warehouse, or a stand-alone administrative building. A Type 1 loss can also be a smaller portion of a much larger structure.

Type 2

Type 2 is a midsize commercial loss typically involving 15,000 to 60,000 square feet of affected floor space. The building or buildings involved are usually multi-level and/or divided spaces. If the facility was entirely affected, examples of a Type 2 loss may include a small multi-family property, a midsize school, a small shopping center, a multi-tenant administration facility, or a midsize warehouse or manufacturing facility. A Type 2 loss can also be just a portion of a much larger structure.

Type 3

Type 3 is a large commercial loss typically involving more than 60,000 square feet of affected floor space. The building or buildings involved will likely be large multi-level structures. If the facility was entirely affected, examples of a Type 3 loss can include, but are not limited to, a large church, hospital, school, or university; a mid- to high-rise retail facility; a large industrial, manufacturing, or warehouse facility; or a large strip-style shopping center. This is the level at which it would be appropriate to refer to the project as a “large loss.”

Once our team determines the level of loss, the property is further assessed, and a team of appropriate size is dispatched to get the job done quickly and efficiently, and return your business to operation “Like it never even happened.”

For ways to be prepared for when a loss happens at your business please see our blog post entitled What is an ERP.
