Smoke Damage After Building Fire

6/15/2022 (Permalink)

Smoke Damage After a Fire in Your Voorhees Building?

Here's What To Do:

If you experience a fire in your commercial building, it’s not only the flames that you need to be concerned about. In some cases, smoke can cause even more damage.

The following are a few reasons that smoke cleaning should be performed as soon as possible after a fire.

  1. Smoke Travels Farther Than Flames

Even if the fire was small or contained to a specific area, there may be smoke damage beyond this point. Smoke travels through the air and carries soot and other contaminants as it does. Because of this, it is important to have smoke cleaning done throughout the building, whether the flames spread far or not.

  1. It Can Cause Long-Term Damage

While fire damage is often obvious, smoke damage can be less so. Smoke and soot particles can find their way into small crevices where they can begin to cause problems for your belongings. This is especially true for electronics, as the acidic elements in the smoke can cause the metal and hardware to corrode. If you believe that your computers, televisions or equipment have been affected, do not turn them on until they have been examined to prevent making the damage worse.

  1. Odor Can Be Difficult to Remove

It may be fairly easy to remove the visible signs of smoke and fire damage, but the smell can linger for long afterward. Smoke particles can become trapped in the walls, carpeting and porous items, so you should include these in the cleanup process as well. Smoke odor can be stubborn, but a fire restoration company will have professional equipment that should be able to remove it from the air and your belongings.

After a fire, it can be easy to focus on the damage that you can see, but you should be sure to pay attention to that which is less visible as well. Performing smoke cleaning is an important part of the restoration process and should be done thoroughly to return your building to its previous condition.

For questions about cleaning smoke and soot after a fire, call the Franchise Professionals at SERVPRO of Haddon Heights/Voorhees at 856-566-3388. We are proud to serve the following communities:

Preparing for Thunder & Lightning Storms

6/9/2022 (Permalink)

Preparing for severe weather is critical for your safety and keeping your property safe from damage.

30/30 Rule for Lightning

  • If there is less than 30 seconds between a flash of lightning and the sound of thunder, seek shelter.
  • Wait at least 30 minutes from the last sound of thunder before leaving shelter.

Severe weather can happen anytime, in any part of the country. Severe weather can include hazardous conditions produced by thunderstorms, including damaging winds, tornadoes, large hail, flooding and flash flooding, and winter storms associated with freezing rain, sleet, snow and strong winds.

Know your Risk

Understand the type of hazardous weather that affects you and your family where you live:

Lightning is a leading cause of injury and death from weather-related hazards. Although most lightning victims survive, people struck by lightning often report a variety of long-term, debilitating symptoms.

Thunderstorms are dangerous storms that include lightning and can create or cause:

Water Damage In My Voorhees Server Room

6/1/2022 (Permalink)

Electronics With Water Exposure Need Special Handling.

A data center is the lifeblood of any business or organization. When a water damage event happens, that involves this area of the building, and it is crucial to get professional cleanup services as quickly as possible to ensure the best outcome. Water leaves behind minerals that have the potential to deteriorate circuit boards, and prolonged exposure to high levels of moisture can play havoc with the equipment. Common losses incurred from damage to servers include:

  • Loss of customer data and information critical to daily operations
  • Failure of internal communications
  • Corruption of important documents

What is the Best Process for Commercial Water Removal in a Data Center?

SERVPRO technicians have extensive experience handling commercial water removal in Voorhees properties that affect their computer equipment, including server racks and data centers. The techs use portable pumps most often to extract the water from within a structure. The ease of mobility allows them to move around angles and corners to ensure all the moisture gets removed.

The most traditional data center set up involves numerous servers and switches stacked on rack units. This setup is ideal for maintenance; however, when there is a water loss event such as a pipe break in a ceiling, this can incur large amounts of loss as water runs down through the rack.

What Should Happen First After Water Damage in a Server Room?

Some preliminary actions property owners can take to limit the loss before the techs arrive is:

    •    Turn off electricity to the loss area
    •    Move out server racks if it is safe to do so
    •    Avoid "testing" equipment

The technicians can remove the equipment to a safe area and arrange for an industry professional to inspect and test equipment and recommend any repairs needed before reuse.

General Tactics After Water Loss in a Data Center

It is not unusual for structural elements in the server room to require removal due to damage. Sheetrock wicks moisture rapidly, and once it begins to buckle or warp, it needs disposal as a loss. Depending on the type of flooring, it may lose adhesion to the substrate and need to get removed for drying and cleaning. Industrial carpets are commonly used as flooring in data centers and usually have a rubber backing. This type of floor covering often has one of the best outcomes after a water loss as it is made to repel liquids and usually has the potential for reuse after drying and cleaning. SERVPRO techs inspect these items for the potential for restoration through cleaning methods and reuse. With their general contractor's license #HIC 13VH01276600, the techs have the knowledge and expertise to rebuild any part of the building that water loss damaged.

Drying the loss area usually involves the use of air movers in tandem with dehumidification equipment. In cases where seepage occurred into the subfloor, the techs deploy drying mats to dry the flooring rapidly. Afterward, they clean the areas with professional-grade cleaners to leave the room disinfected and deodorized.  This inhibits the potential for any type of musty water odors remaining within the space.

Monitoring the Drying Process is Important
Highly humid conditions are bad for computer equipment, and during the drying process, the technicians carefully monitor the water vapor levels in the air with their equipment. This attention to detail helps ensure that the interior humidity levels get returned to levels conducive to a good operating environment for both people and equipment. Until the room verifies as attaining drying goals, the final step for cleaning and making any repairs cannot occur.

Avoiding Water Loss Problems in the Future
Once the mitigation efforts complete, SERVPRO technicians give property owners a tour of the loss area and go over actions taken, repairs that got done, and if anything further should get done to restore the data center room to full functionality completely. This information gets compiled into a report that includes photos and detailed descriptions to assist property owners in expediting any insurance claims.

The techs can recommend preventative measures for avoiding water loss issues in the future by taking actions such as waterproofing the server room or the installation of environmental monitoring. This equipment alerts property owners whenever there is a change, such as elevated moisture levels, smoke, or chemicals detected in the immediate area.
