Emergency Ready Plan

10/5/2021 (Permalink)

As many as 50% of businesses close down following a disaster, according to the latest research. Of the businesses that survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind. And knowing you are "Ready for whatever happens" speaks trust to your clients and employees that in the event your business is affected by a disaster, they don’t necessarily have to be.

By developing a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile for your business, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation and can help minimize how water and fire damage can affect your business.

  • A no-cost assessment of your facility. This means there is no need to allocate funds, giving you a great value at no cost. 
  • A concise Profile Document that contains only the critical information needed in the event of an emergency. It will only take a little time to complete and will not take you away from current projects. But it will save a lot of time if ever needed. 
  • A guide to help you get back into your building following a disaster. This can help minimize the amount of time your business is inactive by having an immediate plan of action. 
  • Establishes your local SERVPRO Franchise Professional as your disaster mitigation and restoration provider. You have a provider that is recognized as an industry leader and closes by. 
  • Identification of the line of command for authorizing work to begin. This saves time so we can begin the work of mitigating the damage which can save you time and money. 

Provides facility details such as shut-off valve locations, priority areas, and priority contact information. Having a quick reference for what to do, how to do it, and who to call provides solutions in advance of an emergency so that during the emergency you are "Ready for whatever happens."

Cleaning Contents Affected By Smoke

9/15/2021 (Permalink)

Whenever a fire starts inside a building, smoke can affect numerous items. During a fire, combustion, the process of a solid turning into a gas by applying heat takes place. Smoke is created by materials that do not burn completely.

During a burn, smoke can travel all over the structure which causes various problems. A big part of mitigating fire damage is dealing with smoke-related issues. When a blaze takes place materials all over the home, get coated in soot residue, and foul odors are left behind.

When restoring a house damaged by smoke, our SERVPRO technicians inspect the structure to figure out which areas got affected. We determine which cleaning methods to use based on how concentrated the soot is, the type of residue present, and the kind of materials affected. If the soot is heavily concentrated, then it can be difficult to clean whereas light residues can be wiped off easily.

A fire creates different kinds of smoke throughout its duration based on the materials it burns, the speed of combustion, and the amount of oxygen. When synthetic materials are burned, they create soot that adheres to surfaces better than residues resulting from natural substances such as wood. Fires that burn slow and lack oxygen produce wet smoke that can be extremely difficult to remove compared to quick-burning fires that create dry smoke.

The type of materials surfaces are made of also affects the cleanability of soot residues. Non-porous materials such as plastic and metal repel moisture well making them easy for our SERVPRO technicians to clean using wet, water-based chemicals. Non-porous materials such as softwood and upholstery absorb soot residues better, and they can penetrate deep into the material. Water-based chemicals can soak the soot deeper into the material causing them to get ruined. Dry cleaning methods such as wiping with a dry sponge prove to work better in removing soot from porous substances.

Various methods are available to use when dealing with multiple types of soot residues affected by different kinds of materials. There are different types of cleaning chemicals as well as application methods that are designed specifically for dealing with certain situations.

SERVPRO of Jonesboro is here to help you 24/7/365 with any fire damage and restoration issue.

Tips For Building An Emergency Ready Plan

6/18/2021 (Permalink)

Choose at least two pre-planned places for your family to meet in case of an emergency. One should be right outside your home in case of a sudden emergency, such as a fire. The other should be outside of your neighborhood in case you cannot return home or are asked to evacuate.

Hold evacuation drills at home, practice getting out of the house quickly, and drive your planned evacuation route. The more you practice, the more confident you will be if you really need to evacuate.

Communication is a key component to your safety; make sure you have an out-of-town contact that will help your household reconnect after an emergency. Store an “In Case of Emergency” contact on your phone, have regular conversations about whom to text or call if you need help, and where to go during and after an emergency.

Create a personalized plan and supply kit for your specific daily needs and responsibilities, taking into consideration any additional friends or family that may be included in your emergency plans, such as elderly neighbors or grandparents. Some key factors to consider when creating a supply list are different ages within your household, medical and dietary needs including medications, children.

Every situation has its differences, but overall, the bigger and hotter the fire, the more difficult the clean-up will be. Here at SERVPRO of Jonesboro, we use a combination of tactics including cleaning, deodorizing and sealing of materials to clean up from fire damages. 

Some of the basic information that is important when discussing fire damage restoration is: To know that the process involved will definitely differ depending on the severity and size of the fire and damage caused. However, the principles of fire damage restoration will for the most part be the same.
