Asbestos in Buildings

1/8/2020 (Permalink)

Asbestos can be found in pretty much every building built before the 1980s. It was used in commercial buildings as fireproof material for steel beams and columns. It was also added to concrete, asphalt, wall boards, floor tiles and adhesives. Essentially, because of its strength and thermal insulation it was added to every aspect of a building. It was later found out that when broken apart, can cause serious health risk when a human was exposed to it. The EPA now requires all the buildings built before the 1980s be tested for asbestos and be removed from the property. Here at SERVPRO, we specialize in testing for asbestos and removing asbestos in a safe and timely matter. We make this process very smooth and swift and ensure the safety of those around.  

A sprinkler story

Water sprinkler system in commercial building. This little sprinkler can cause big damage.

The most common type of water damage for commercial buildings comes from the sprinkler system in place. The sprinkler system is connected to every room and floor. If there's any sign of smoke or fire, the entire building will be flushed with water by the sprinkler system. We see this kind of situation often enough, and it takes some serious man power to extract all that water. We have what it takes to complete these kinds of jobs. Our equipment and cleaning agents are the best in the industry. We also have great teams we partner up with to get the job done as fast as possible. We will even help with replacing the carpets and wooden floors. From A to Z we get the job done. 

Things get old.

Let's have a real conversation about time. When was the last time you inspected the plumbing, roof and storm drains? Commercial buildings need routinely inspections, to avoid costly repairs. Maintenance is so important in a commercial building. Do you know who does the routine maintenance in your building? Is there a chart, or an email reminder that get's sent out? Did you know that we come out and create a plan for you? Yep! It's called an ERP. We create a digital book that gives you all the useful information about your building. It has emergency contacts and a map of the building. It even has a step by step guide to shutting off the main water source. It's something that we would love to provide for you if you don't have one. Call us and we will come set that up for you!  

Critters and jitters

This blog is going to give the creeps! Especially if you don't like things that crawl and have tails...! Yuck. When you have a commercial building, you have things that go bump in the dark. It's unavoidable, you have the space and people to keep these rodents happy. Yup, I said it, RODENTS. They live under your building, create a road withing your walls, and make a home for themselves anywhere they can. They live and die in your building, and the worse part is that they poop and pee everywhere too. Once you discover that you have a pest problem, you'll need to call us. We will partner up with a pest control company and do the necessary clean up. Our cleaning agents are made for heavy duty sanitation. Our cleaning services are not just for water and fire damages, we can handle pest damage too!
