SERVPRO of Prattville Can Remove Water and Dry Out Your Commercial Business

7/31/2020 (Permalink)

When you own a warehouse in Prattville, it is essential to check your roof on a regular basis. If you find a pond sitting up there, your drainage is not working efficiently. Remember, each inch of water weighs around five pounds. The pooled water can cause incredible strain over time and lead to leaks and water damage inside your building. Look for any damage to the perimeter flashing, roof membranes, or penetrations to the roof like pipes, drains, and gas lines. These critical safety measures can deteriorate over time, which leaves you with several potential hazards.

Dealing with a water intrusion in your Prattville business is not a fun task. You need commercial water removal services as soon as possible to get the standing water out and dry your building to prevent additional loss. Our staff at SERVPRO of Prattville understands the urgency in a situation like this, so we are here to help whenever you need us. With the professional tools and training we have, letting us handle the problem is best to get your business back on track.

To dry your structure, we need to remove moisture from the air as well. Evaporation adds moisture to the air, and dehumidification removes the moisture. Two systems can be used for drying which is an open system or a closed system.

With an open drying system, the moist air inside your building is exchanged with the drier air outside. Opening up windows and using fans and air movers to ventilate the structure exchanges the air. These systems work only when the outside air has fewer grains per pound than the air inside. For the best conditions, outside air should have a high temperature and low relative humidity. The difference between the specific humidity of the air outside and inside is also significant.

In a closed system, SERVPRO of Prattville techs closes off the area affected by the outside air and from areas of your structure that are not affected. Dehumidification equipment is used to dehumidify the inside air. We must control the indoor environment with air movers and dehumidifiers for a closed system to work. It is easier for us to dry smaller areas, creating a drying chamber by hanging plastic sheeting or closing windows and doors. Air conditioning may be used as well to assist us in dehumidifying. By setting up a drying chamber, the drying process moves faster, and we can dry everything more thoroughly.

SERVPRO of Prattville is careful to use the best drying system to get your property in Prattville or the surrounding areas dry again after a water loss. You can reach out to us at any time by calling  (334) 358-1186

Commercial Cleaning, We Have You Covered.

6/29/2020 (Permalink)

Cleaning your business or home is essential to the health and wellbeing of everyone occupying these spaces. Especially now more than ever, the need to "keep things tidy" is of utmost importance. Unfortunately, there are some misconceptions and information that is not as widely known to help keep your home or business at the highest standard of clean that it could be. It is best to hire a professional to clean and disinfect, but in the case that you are unable to, we wanted to give some information on an important and lesser-known fact, the difference between cleaning and disinfecting.

Cleaning vs Disinfecting

The first thing to know is that there is a difference. Many people use the term interchangeably, but the 2 serve different functions and are used for different reasons. Approaching a "cleaning" job, without realizing the difference, may end up not getting the results you intended.

What's the difference

Cleaning removes germs and dirt from the surface. by lowering the amount of germs, it lowers the risk of spreading them. It is important to note that cleaning removes germs but does not kill them.

Disinfecting, on the other hand, uses chemicals to actually kill germs on the surface. By killing germs lowers the risk of spreading by eliminating them altogether. It is important to note that disinfecting only pertains to killing germs, it doesn't refer to cleaning dirty surfaces or removing germs.

Best practices

Cleaning and disinfecting is an important part of regular home and business health upkeep. It is best to first clean surfaces, removing any dirt, then disinfect, killing the germs. Many disinfecting products require a time frame to remain wet on a surface to fully disinfect. Products such as Lysol can take up to 3 minutes, and up to 10 minutes for the Norovirus.

When to do which one

It is always best, when possible to clean and disinfect for the highest level of cleanliness. Some of the more necessary times to disinfect include:

  • Counters where food was prepared
  • Times of seasonal illness
  • Viral outbreak
  • If a person in your home has been ill

Are You Building Water Damage in Your Prattville Factory?

7/16/2019 (Permalink)

You can trust SERVPRO of Prattville for a fast response to all of your water damage restoration needs.

In Addition to Commercial Water Removal Services, Wet Interiors in Prattville Factories Need Restoration

Discovering puddles of water on your factory's floor can start an investigation into the water's source. Drips from overhead might come from the roof, where storms passing over Prattville might have blown water in through cracks along roofing seams or other openings. Other places that might let water into a building include overhead plumbing lines. We have both mitigation crews and building services personnel to handle all your factory's needs.

Businesses in Prattville need commercial water removal services that can arrive promptly. After restoring normal moisture levels, cleaning may not suffice. Rebuilding damaged portions to prevent the enlarging of these areas may need to occur. Our services, under Commercial Contractor License #41839, cover the areas that your factory needs.

Streamlining all of these services for your business, from removing the water causing the problem, to repairing the areas that permitted the breach, reduces both direct expenses and indirect costs. Helping restore normal operations wherever they may have seen interruptions minimizes profit losses. 

Other building services from SERVPRO include plumbing repairs and roofing repairs when the roof over your factory leaks, removing the water brought in by one storm only keeps things safe until the next downpour. Both minor leaks from dripping faucets and major ones from pipes that burst open cause unnecessary expense. Our team can fix these and anything in between.

SERVPRO technicians can also assist with document drying, which helps prevent businesses from losing valuable documents and other paper-based materials. The structure of your facility's office space can also sustain damage because of water, especially flooring. Although we restore the moisture content of all building materials to average percentages, many flooring types require additional restoration care. We can perform this for you, helping reduce your recovery costs. Replacing flooring often costs thousands of dollars more than the expense of restoring those same materials.

From top to bottom, and every inch in between, SERVPRO of Prattville has the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-certified specialists needed to make your factory safe and productive again, “Like it never even happened.” Just like our restoration services, our building services are also available to businesses in Wetumpka, Tallassee, and Millbrook by calling our 24-hour service line, (334) 358-1186, any day of the year.

When a storm devastates your business our experts are ready 24/7 to help you with your restoration needs so you can get back to business.

Cleaning Up Flood Damage in Your Wetumpka Diner

As many diners are, your Wetumpka business stays open to hungry patrons all night long. While there are rewards to this availability, especially after other area eateries have closed up for the evening, it does not leave much time for cleanup and maintenance of the building. This situation is even more pressing when natural disasters like flooding occur in the area and affect the diner, as you have to react quickly to the situation to keep both your employees and potential customers safe.

Once the building has gotten cleared, you need to address the flood damage that has occurred within your Wetumpka diner. While many business owners might strive to take care of these effects on their own to save money and get their doors open quickly, contamination is a serious concern when natural flooding has occurred to the structure. Potential bacteria, sewage, and chemicals could all adversely affect structural elements as well as your equipment, not to mention, provide an ideal breeding ground for mold spores to colonize.

Our SERVPRO professionals have a 24-hour response time, making our team available whenever disaster strikes to offer effective mitigation strategies and protect the equipment and contents of your diner from irreparable damage from rising waters. Our mitigation begins with fast extraction techniques utilizing our truck-mounted pumps that arrive with our Green Fleet of response vehicles. Once the excess water has gotten removed, we can assess damages and begin preparing for drying efforts.

After the pooling water has gotten removed, our Contents Department can work to remove at-risk equipment and electronics from the area that could become severely damaged by the moist environment. With black water flooding, it is customary to remove all exposed materials entirely to prevent continued contamination or spread of bacteria. Our licensed contractors can seamlessly transition to rebuilding your diner quickly once mitigation work completes.

There are many steps to recovering your diner once flood damage has occurred, but our SERVPRO of Prattville team offers comprehensive support and restoration that helps to get your doors back open as quickly as possible. Give us a call anytime at (334) 358-1186.

How Porous Material Is A Breeding Ground For Mold In Your Commercial Property In Tallassee

1/28/2019 (Permalink)

If you ever notice a fungus growing inside your place of business, call SERVPRO of Prattville at (334) 358-1186 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

Commercial Mold Damage Experts In Tallassee Talk About Problems With Porous Contents

If a small water leak ever develops inside your carpet warehouse in Tallassee, your contents could get negatively affected. If organic materials stay wet for too long, you may find yourself with a commercial mold damage situation. Once a fungus starts to develop, it quickly forms structures called hyphae that grow into, out of, and around the contaminated material. The hyphae not only make the contamination larger, but they also produce microscopic, seed-like spores that enable the fungus to reproduce. These small spores float around in the air until they find other wet materials to settle on and cause your company commercial mold damage in places far away from the initial source.

When dealing with the storage warehouse for your business, our SERVPRO technicians know that mitigating problems with your contents can save you and your insurance company money and time in the long run. Once commercial mold damage inside your Tallassee warehouse is found, we take measures to prevent it from spreading and causing multiple issues. Porous materials in your warehouse can be locations where spores sit until they get activated by moisture someday in the future. Organic substances like paper or cardboard in your warehouse can be prime locations for microbial growth if they get wet at a later date. If any water is not removed quickly after a leak, many microbes that exist can activate and contaminate various items and building materials in your warehouse.

If our SERVPRO crew knows that you have porous contents that could have been contaminated, there are numerous steps we can take to help prevent future growth. Any porous substances that get affected by spores get sprayed with antimicrobial chemicals. These chemicals aid in eliminating mold growth as well as the spores created by the contamination. In some cases, we use foggers to eliminate microbes and foul odors that exist inside your porous materials after fungi have formed.

If you ever notice a fungus growing inside your place of business, call SERVPRO of Prattville at (334) 358-1186 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

We regularly assist business owners in Tallassee combat the problem of commercial water damage.

Mitigation Of Commercial Water Damage In A Tallassee Hotel

When your Tallassee hotel guests complain of unpleasant or stale odors, you need to address these as quickly as possible. While staff can use deodorizing sprays to mask the problem for a while, this in no way resolves the issue at its source. Until then, your guests continue noticing such odors.

We regularly assist business owners in Tallassee combat the problem of commercial water damage. Odors are not the only noticeable effect of water that has seeped into your property. Sometimes water comes in through a leak in an appliance, a water line, or from backed up drains. SERVPRO can fix these problems for you and mitigate any other damage we find.

As materials deteriorate from water damage, the microscopic particles end up in the air. This is where the unwanted odors come from that your guests detect during their stay. We use different devices to locate saturated materials so we can perform the work needed to get rid of the damage and restore things “Like it never even happened.”

Other areas of a hotel that often suffers when water damage is present include dry rotting of carpeting, discolored paint, mold and mildew in guest rooms' drapes and other soft furnishings, and elevated humidity throughout your hotel.

We have the equipment needed to give us the upper hand on any size job. We can rectify more than odors emanating from damaged areas of your hotel.

Restoring Fire Damages to a Wetumpka Church

8/31/2018 (Permalink)

Trust our SERVPRO crew to take care of your local church in the event a fire strikes.

Our SERVPRO Team is Equipped to Restore Fire Damage from Your Commercial Property

Disasters in your Wetumpka church are rarely easy to restore and clean up without specialized equipment and specific training. Especially in the event of a fire throughout the building, effects and damages could be widespread and vary significantly. It is critical to get these damages taken care of as quickly as possible to help to reduce the overall tear out and replacement needs for the facility, but also to get your place of worship back into top shape as promptly as possible.

Fire damages to your Wetumpka church present themselves in various ways from soot/smoke damage to structural integrity concerns and even water damage from extinguishment. Understanding how each of these effects requires a specific approach can help you to appreciate your need for professional restoration services like what our SERVPRO technicians can provide. We work hard to live up to our slogan that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

The contents of your church are often what takes the worst of the lingering effects like soot and smoke damage. Carpeting throughout the sanctuary is an excellent example of this. Not only are these fibers a magnet for the carbon film of soot and debris, but this material and the subflooring can become overly saturated and weaken on account of the water used to fight the flames. Removing the moisture and restoring these areas take several intricate steps from weighted extraction into carpet cleaning to fully restore.

Materials throughout the affected areas like drywall and wood are particularly susceptible to absorbing the smoke damage, ultimately requiring deodorization. The environment is particularly volatile following the extinguishing of a fire, which our SERVPRO technicians prepare for with the use of personal protective equipment like respirators and coveralls. To clear the atmosphere within the building, a combination of air scrubbers and thermal foggers are used to clean out soot, debris and other contaminants from the air and then to deodorize the lingering smoke damage.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

With the congregation that you can expect throughout the week to use your church, taking care of a significant disaster like a widespread fire requires much more than you can do on your own. If you get posed with a situation like this in the future, trust in the experience and rapid response of our SERVPRO of Prattville fire restoration technicians. Our response team is available 24/7 by calling (334) 358-1186.

Grease Fires In Your Tallassee Restaurant Require Fast Fire Damage Restoration

7/17/2018 (Permalink)

A kitchen fire might happen at a moment's notice, so you need to have professional restoration that can arrive quickly as well.

Fast Fire Damage Restoration

Kitchen fires can happen in the blink of an eye inside of your Tallassee restaurant. Even with only a small area affected, the lingering effects and acute symptoms of the blaze pose a threat to your customers and staff. One of the most detrimental of these effects is a noxious smoke odor that can spread out well beyond the confinements of where the fire happened.

With the oils and grease used in or produced by the dishes you create in your Tallassee kitchen, open flames provide an ever-present risk of severe and threatening situations. While your kitchen area likely gets equipped with several types of extinguishers to handle a variety of fires, resolving the damage that has occurred has to happen before your restaurant can function at its best again.

Our SERVPRO professionals understand the importance of your business and customer satisfaction. When a disaster like this occurs in your building, you want to have the damage restored and return your eatery to the atmosphere that your customers are accustomed to experiencing. It's part of our rapid response approach to serving our community, being there as promptly as possible to clean up the mess and get your facility back to preloss conditions.

With even localized fires in your kitchen, damages can quickly spread to cabinetry and counters, requiring the need for both cleanup and even possibly demolition and reconstruction. Still, one of the most significant threats to a customer experience is the foul odor wafting through the dining area from the recent kitchen blaze.

Remedying this odor often requires our SERVPRO technicians to use thermal foggers. These machines release a chemical solution into the environment and over the contents of the room to break apart noxious odor molecules and neutralize them.

A kitchen fire might happen at a moment's notice, so you need to have professional restoration that can arrive quickly as well. Call our SERVPRO of Prattville fire restoration technicians whenever you need us at (334) 358-1186.

Commercial Water Damage Specialists in Wetumpka

If a broken pipe or other source of water damage occurs on your commercial property, contact SERVPRO for remediation services.

Safety for BOTH Your Workers and Ours is SERVPRO's Primary Concern When Remediating Water Damage

Many times water leaks cause much damage to a building, and the situation requires immediate attention. If a pipe breaks inside your Wetumpka warehouse, unwanted moisture possibly damages your contents, products, or building materials. If a problem with water exists for forty-eight hours or more, then mold growth sometimes occurs.
Water taking place inside your business' warehouse sometimes causes a loss of product or revenue. SERVPRO's commercial water damage experts of Wetumpka have experience in mitigating losses at a commercial property in the best ways to reduce the loss of revenue. All procedures taken during the restoration process, get done in ways that keep your warehouse operating as usual.
If there is standing water inside your warehouse, we start mitigating the issue by securing the area first. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect the area for any potential hazards associated with the flood. Any slip hazards or potential electrical dangers get removed. Any areas that have a potential of danger get sectioned off and labeled as dangerous.
After the water damaged region of the warehouse is safe for all occupants, all of the water gets extracted. Any standing water gets vacuumed up with our extraction equipment. Any carpet or upholstery inside the warehouse office gets extracted with specialized vacuum extensions.
After all of the water gets removed from the affected area, warehouse racks get moved so that nothing impedes everyday business functions. Racks that are not feasible to move or furniture inside the warehouse office often gets placed on foam blocks. The foam blocks allow the flooring underneath the racks and furniture to receive airflow coming from the drying equipment.
Air movers get placed so that air moves in a circular motion. The hot air circulating inside the building increases the rate of evaporation. Dehumidifiers also get set up to remove moisture from the air and pump out hot, dry air helping create the perfect drying atmosphere.
Sometimes the drying equipment gets set up in specific areas then moved around so that business operations are not adversely affected. If water ever becomes an issue inside your company warehouse call SERVPRO of Prattville at (334) 358-1186 for assistance any time of the day.

Commercial Flood Damage in Your Wetumpka Warehouse

2/28/2018 (Permalink)

Every warehouse flooding event is different and requires a custom plan to dry out the building and items stored within. Contact SERVPRO to discuss.

Team SERVPRO Puts Together a Personalized Action Plan Based on Your Particular Commercial Damage Scenario

Natural disasters such as flooding or heavy thunderstorms can lead to flood damage, especially if your warehouse in Wetumpka is not protected. Your commercial building is at a higher risk of sustaining water damage over the weekends and at night when everyone goes home.
Commercial flood damage in Wetumpka is devastating for anyone with a business. An event like this disrupts your business and can result in a significant financial loss if you do not attend to it right away. To help you clean up the mess and deal with such a disaster, you should get in touch with us at SERVPRO. We are specially trained to handle flooding situations and are ready to help you whenever you need.
We first do a visual inspection to get an estimate of the damages. We can then start extracting all the standing water. We do so with truck-mounted pumps. Once this is done, we can work on getting your business thoroughly dried. We use industrial machines such as dehumidifiers and air movers to do so, monitoring the equipment daily. This part of the remediation process is the longest.
Based on initial moisture readings and the layout of your property, SERVPRO techs determine how many air movers and dehumidifiers are necessary to dry your building efficiently and adequately. A dry standard is set using an area of the property that is unaffected. After the areas affected are in line with this standard, we remove the equipment.
After all the areas are dried thoroughly and our equipment removed, we wipe down and clean everything from the ceiling to the walls, to the floors. We apply a layer of antimicrobial which is sprayed to stop any potential mold growth. Both air and culture samples are taken to ensure your business is mold and bacteria free.
Any non-salvageable building materials are demolished and disposed of during the mitigation process and are replaced afterward which includes paint, flooring, and drywall.
SERVPRO of Prattville wants to make sure that your business in Eclectic, Elmore, or Deatsville can get back up and running as soon as possible after a flooding disaster. Give us a call as soon as possible at (334) 358-1186 so we can get your business dry and safe again.

Commercial Fire Damage Restoration Experts Can Revitalize Bed And Breakfast Facilities In Wetumpka

1/16/2018 (Permalink)

Running a bed and breakfast in Wetumpka depends on a significant amount of creativity and perseverance on the part of the owners.

Commercial Fire Damage Restoration

Running a bed and breakfast in Wetumpka depends on a significant amount of creativity and perseverance on the part of the owners. From booking a stay to the time the guests depart, ensuring a pleasant visit helps retain an excellent public image and reputation and increase business.

All businesses in Wetumpka can sustain commercial fire damage, with some at higher risk than others. Because of the inherent qualities of a bed and breakfast's normal operations, some guests engage in riskier behavior than other guests.

The primary way they engage in this is smoking cigarettes during their overnight stay. While most of the time this habit does not cause a fire, the smoke left behind on walls and other surfaces can become problematic for other guests. Responsible bed and breakfast owners want to ensure that all guests enjoy their time without any difficulties. They understand that sleeping in a room where smoke residue remains can pose severe problems for their more sensitive guests.

This is a situation that the professionals at SERVPRO can help you resolve quickly. Our Fire and Smoke Restoration Technician (FSRT) often works with our Odor Control Technician (OCT) in eliminating noxious odors. Whenever burn holes or other physical evidence remains behind after a guest departs, we can also assist you in resolving this predicament.

Many times, a thorough washing of the walls and ceilings can reduce a foul odor's strength. Because smoke rises, these areas can contain the sticky substances in a film-like layer. Carpeting absorbs the drier particles that fell to the ground. We can carry out carpet cleaning to eliminate these odors.

When a fire does occur, we are ready and prepared to mitigate the damage your business sustains with skilled workers. We remove any damage materials efficiently and then clean up the area. Performing our work this way provides a clean slate for restoration work to begin immediately.

SERVPRO of Prattville views our neighboring businesses as crucial elements in our area, and want to help those suffering from smoke and fire damage and other emergencies recover quickly. Doing so helps keep businesses from failing in the future and strengthens our economy. Our 24-hour services can be contacted by calling (334) 358-1186 where we can discuss your specific needs.

If the water is not promptly removed, it can damage your inventory and cause irreparable damage to your store as well. However, the extent of water damage is not limited to the damage caused by the intruding water. The residual moisture can cause your store to stink and drive the customers out.

Seeking professional help can eliminate the odor problems in your Prattville boutique after a water damage incidence. The good news is that skilled certified technicians use sophisticated methods, and equipment to get rid of the smells in no time. Here are some the steps that are involved in combating odors after water removal.

Eliminating the source
One of the first things that SERVPRO technicians do to combat smells is to eliminate its source as soon as possible. Our IICRC certified technicians use their years of experience and technical skill to locate the source of the offensive odor and eliminate it before the situation gets out of hand. Indoor air quality-IAQ- is of paramount importance.

Using multiple methods to eliminate the odor
SERVPRO technicians use a host of methods to combat the smell depending on its source. We use many agents to eliminate odor and odor-causing particles from your store as soon as possible. Masking agents are used to cover up the foul smells with a pleasant smell. These agents are often used in the form of beads that contain a potent pleasant-smelling compound. Masking is not a permanent solution, but it does mitigate the adverse effects unpleasant smells may have on a place of business.

If the odors are particularly severe, Electrically Generated Deodorizers are often used. These deodorizers use Ozone gas that reacts with the odor causing particles and neutralizes them, so they do not smell anymore. SERVPRO technicians are highly skilled professionals who have years of experience using such deodorizers.

We have the experience, the knowledge, and the equipment (yes, also thermal foggers) to get your boutique smelling as it should- fresh and pleasant. Call SERVPRO of Prattville at (334) 358-1186 today to schedule an appointment.

Assisted Living Water Damage Challenges in Prattville

4/27/2017 (Permalink)

Water damage can happen quickly in a facility with multiple residents. Call SERVPRO and we respond quickly to your disaster.

SERVPRO's Quick Response can Help Avoid Mold Damage at Your Facility

When apartments built for assisted living sustain water damage keeping the residents safe and on-site, if possible, is of particular importance. Our experienced and trained technicians at SERVPRO pledge to make every effort to contain the restoration efforts we make, so that vulnerable residents stay in their homes while damage is mitigated.
Assisted living facilities face the same risk of commercial water damage as any Prattville multiple family dwelling. If a resident or an attendant in one unit lets a tub overflow or fails to secure a shower curtain, excess moisture leaks into other apartments, causing a complicated water damage scenario. Appliance failure resulting in water damage to common areas such as laundry rooms or the facility's group kitchen impacts the daily routines of all residents. We plan our restoration work to minimize disruptions, often permitting uninterrupted meal and personal care services to those who live in the facility.
Our professional grade equipment makes short work of water extraction, undaunted if multiple levels of your assisted living facility are affected. We can scale our response to the level of your disaster, taking care of the water damage fast even if it means reaching out to other SERVPRO franchises in our nationwide network. Our connections ensure we have enough staff and tools to dry out affected areas quickly, averting the need to move residents. Air movers and dehumidifiers bring moisture levels down to the drying goals our skilled staff set within hours.
A swift restoration also prevents the danger of mold growth due to the water damage. Attending to harm done by leaks or appliance flooding immediately greatly decreases the possibility of microbial infestations. Some residents of your facility may be susceptible to health effects if mold is present. Only their health care professionals advise appropriately about mold concerns, but our drying and cleanup deflect the issue by preventing mold from getting a chance to thrive.
If we find a mold outbreak, we contain it using air scrubbers. Negative air pressure, physical barriers and air filters guard your staff and residents against exposure. Our staff is trained in EPA approved protocols for mold remediation in schools and commercial buildings, precisely the level of response needed for your facility.
Line up a crew from SERVPRO of Prattville immediately after water damages your assisted living facility. Call (334) 358-1186 to ask for the help needed to restore water and collateral damage fast.

Save Your Bowling Center From Water Damage

Do Not Let Your Dallas Business Get Bowled Over by Water Damage--Call SERVPRO

SERVPRO Spares the Damage Caused by Water to Your Bowling Lanes

Offering a place for both locals and travelers to relax and enjoy some drink and food while playing a fun sport, the community bowling alley is a favorite destination both for leagues and the casual bowler. The festivities stop when heavy rains overwhelm the flat roof and water floods the lanes. Get everyone back in the groove with a fast response by SERVPRO.
Water damage to the wooden lanes in your Prattville bowling alley needs specialized attention from a restoration industry leader. The hardwood is sturdy, but moisture poses a grave risk if it is not removed swiftly and properly. Our team of water damage experts studies a broad range of water removal and moisture reduction techniques designed for wooden floors as they complete the coursework required for IICRC certification.
The faster SERVPRO technicians inspect the water damage, the better the outcome for your entertainment venue. We arrive with powerful water extraction equipment almost before you ask “is there a quality water damage restorer near me?” and approach the problem scientifically. Our staff measures the moisture content of the water damaged lanes after removing visible water. Next, they formulate a plan to remove the excess moisture without marring the wood further. Air movers are one option, with the flow directed beneath the boards if possible as well as blowing across the surface. The high gloss of a bowling lane risks sealing the water within so we take all precautions to make sure the drying happens, even drilling small holes to release trapped moisture. Dehumidifiers and heat join the battle, with careful monitoring to achieve the balance necessary to limit warping and overdrying.
Closing for even a day to manage the water damage is not an option you are likely to want to pursue. Our experienced and skilled employees take pride in identifying the areas most in need of intensive restoration. Lanes within your alley that sustained only minimal damage are back online as soon as possible, Count on us to know the difference and keep your venue open for the birthday parties and after work sessions on the lanes unaffected.
We appreciate the confidence SERVPRO of Prattville inspires in our commercial clients. Expect a quick inspection within hours of your call to our dispatchers at (334) 358-1186 when water damage threatens to prevent letting the good times roll.

Pet Care in Tallassee is often Messy but Commercial Water Removal Will Clean the Worst Up

1/30/2017 (Permalink)

We will always work as quickly as possible. We understand that time is money, and that water emergencies can affect your business long-term.

How to deal with Tallassee Commercial Water Removal and Pet Care

Pet care can include salon and grooming locations, boarding services and kennels, veterinarian clinics and pet shops. Because of the presence of animals, food and water bowls are almost always present in these settings. Most of them will also have cages that need to be cleaned on a regular basis. For those locations that include shampooing of pets, some have opted for the latest in pet care shampooing machines. Similar to a washing machine, but also capable of blow drying pets before they are taken out of the machine, these devices require water lines to operate.
In Tallassee, cleaning up a commercial water emergency quickly and completely is easy with commercial water removal. Doing so protects current and future animals on the premises, the building itself, and your expensive equipment. SERVPRO hires employees who are understanding, dedicated, and hardworking, and then we educate them according to IICRC standards.
Knowing how to handle an emergency situation is vitally important, but being able to communicate with our customers is also something our employees are taught. And just as our technicians are always courteous when working around our customers' clients, you can rest assured knowing that the safety of any animals on your premises will always be taken into account while we are on the job.
We will always work as quickly as possible. We understand that time is money, and that water emergencies can affect your business long-term. Commercial water removal may be a business-to-business service, but we know that there are always real people, individuals, and families, who rely on our expertise to handle everything correctly.
With any water emergency, it's our goal to return everything involved to a dry state. The more rapid we can do this, the less risk there is of secondary water damage from developing. In situations where pets and other animals spend a lot of time, animal fur is often present in high amounts. Fur carries dander and sometimes parasites. We will also clean this out, similar to post-flood services. Odor control may be a problem that we can assist with. When we are finished, your establishment will be “Like it never even happened” again, both visually and aromatically.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Having the responsibility of caring for others' pets is something we know you take seriously, and we want to help you continue to provide your services. Water emergencies can't stop you when we're only a call away. Reach us, SERVPRO of Prattville, at (334) 358-1186, any time of the day or night.

Four Rules for Successful Commercial Water Removal in Millbrook Server Rooms

12/17/2016 (Permalink)

SERVPRO has the resources to tackle damage to electronics. Give us a quick call to discuss!

Quick Action Can Save Your Electronic Equipment

As all modern business owners know, connectivity is key. Without a robust, reliable network, you cannot get your products to the people who matter. So, the server room is, in many ways, the beating heart of a company. It must always be protected from interference, whether this is caused by poor security or a natural disaster.

Unfortunately, there’s only so much that a business owner can do to safeguard their server racks and data equipment. Water damage is always a danger, particularly in flood-prone regions. Fortunately, SERVPRO specializes in commercial water removal in Millbrook. We may not be able to stop your server room from flooding, but we can certainly help you to minimize the losses if the worst does happen.

This guide to handling water damage in a server room will give you some advice on what to do and who to call.

Don’t Panic

This is the most important rule of all. In the event of a flood or a serious leak, your first instinct will be to try and move the most valuable pieces of equipment. This is a natural response, but it is not always helpful. Not only is it dangerous to enter an active server room which is filled with standing water, movement can dislodge the liquid and cause more problems. If you have any doubts at all about the safety of the space, wait for a qualified team to arrive on site.

Call for Help

SERVPRO is based in Prattville. We serve business owners both in and around this area. As soon as you know that there’s a problem – be it a leaking appliance, a hole in the roof, or damage caused by extreme rain – call us for help. If you can do it safely, turn off the main water and power supply to the server room. This will neutralize some of the dangers and allow the technicians to get started quickly.

Be Optimistic

There’s no worse combination than water and electrical equipment. The two just aren’t supposed to mix, and moisture within a server room is a big problem. However, it does not mean that your computers, racks, and networking components are beyond repair. Even in severe cases, our technicians have managed to save electrical devices. We use highly sophisticated drying processes to extract the water and restore machines to their original condition.

Stay Flexible

In order to do this, we may need to remove the damaged machines from the premises and take them to a specialist restoration facility. Here, they will be treated with state of the art drying tools and cleaned to remove any contaminants that may have been in the water. This requires your approval, and nothing will be taken away from the site without permission.

Restoring electronic equipment can be a complex job, but we know that the safety of your servers is paramount. SERVPRO of Prattville is a local company, so our technicians can be at your side within hours. Call us 24/7 at (334) 358-1186 for emergency repairs.
