My Mountain Home Restaurant Has Fire Damage, Where Can I Get Help?

heavy fire damage in kitchen Fire damage can be severe and close your restaurant. SERVPRO can quickly restore your business.

Call a Company Firm that Offers Commercial Fire Damage Restoration in Mountain Home

Restaurants are continually at risk for fire. The flames can burst out unexpectedly because of faulty cooking equipment or negligence on the part of the staff. The chances of a fire occurring are high in restaurants where many people handle the equipment.

What steps should I take after the fire?

After your Mountain Home restaurant sustains commercial fire damage, it is essential to contact your insurance firm to determine coverage. An insurance adjuster can visit the premises to examine the extend of the damage and begin the claims filing process. It is critical to start the fire restoration process quickly. Remember that furnishings, walls, and other surfaces can begin to discolor minutes after exposure to fire and smoke. The longer that smoke residue remains on a surface, the harder it is to recover the affected items. Calling SERVPRO as soon as possible can help minimize long term damage and the items that need replacing.

What are the benefits of hiring a fire restoration company?

Hiring a professional fire damage restoration firm can keep restoration costs lower in the long term and increase the chances of saving décor and furnishings. The process of cleaning soot and scorch marks is thorough and detailed. Even though the fire may be confined mostly to the kitchen, the dining area may also have sustained damaging smoke. Soot can clog up air filters for days or weeks, and smoke odor is difficult to remove. Smoke particles can also cause:

  • Paint and plastics to become discolored.
  • Metals to start tarnishing.
  • A foul odor to emanate from fabrics and upholstery.

Fire damage in a restaurant can leave employees out of work until the building is repaired and can reopen. Our fire restoration experts can remove the soot damage and deep clean the affected areas to help you get back to normal operations.

Is it possible to have hidden fire damage?

Yes, hidden fire damage is a severe problem. If restorers miss any area, it can have an impact on the safety of your restaurant. Our SERVPRO team can decontaminate crawl spaces, HVAC systems, and air vents so that soot does not cause unpleasant odors and discoloration. We can thoroughly search for hidden smoke damage and safely clean all the affected areas of the restaurant. We apply the elements and principles of cleaning to restore materials to preloss sate and reduce the loss expense of your fire claim.

SERVPRO of Wood River Valley is available on an emergency basis to handle fire damage in commercial properties. Call us at (208) 788-0183 for a quick, effective restoration of your restaurant.

Don't Let Flood Damage Impact Your Mountain Home Bakery

Removing Commercial Mountain Home Flood Damage from a Local Bakery 

While Idaho business owners may feel safer from ground or flash floods than US entrepreneurs living at or below sea level, the truth is that flooding can happen anywhere and at any time. The nearby Snake River can overflow and overwhelm nearby structures easily, even though elevation levels in Idaho are over 3,000 feet high. Many local businesses, particularly small, single-structure operations, are seldom equipped to address disasters of this scale.  

If your Mountain Home commercial facilities need flood mitigation, SERVPRO can send an emergency response team to your business within hours of your call. This team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, to restore your commercial space and functional, clean, and safe condition for all occupants. These mitigation pros, along with over 1,700 other franchise locations in the US and Canada, are uniquely positioned to respond as quickly as possible to disasters. 

Determining Your Flood Insurance Needs Fast

  • Commercial property insurance does not come with flood coverage. However, you can consult with the National Flood Insurance Program about acquiring flood coverage for your business 
  • Flood insurance covers your building and the contents needed to run your business. Property outside of your building, business vehicles, and financial losses incurred by a disaster are typically not covered.  
  • You can determine flood damage risk by researching local flood maps and FEMA's national flood risk map. 
  • Flood policies do cover mold damage caused by a flood, but not mold that existed before flooding. These claims are assessed on a case-by-case basis to determine appropriate compensation after filing. 

SERVPRO technicians utilize extraction systems that address various depths of floodwaters, as well as auxiliary power sources for them if the power at your facility is out. Before extraction can begin, technicians carefully remove debris and solid contaminants that can affect the safety of your business. Gas-powered submersible pumps are ideal for standing water two inches or more. Squeegees, mops, and extraction wands can remove water from hard flooring surfaces like tile and polished concrete.  

SERVPRO of Wood River Valley can leave your business looking, "Like it never even happened." You can contact (208) 788-0183 24/7 for commercial cleanup services from an experienced emergency-response team.

Debris Removal for Flooded Burley Apartment Buildings

Substantial water loss incidents can leave dust, dirt, debris, and other particulates throughout your Burley apartments. Not only is the removal of this water something that is often out of the capabilities of property owners, management groups only entrust the general upkeep and maintenance of the apartments to designated employees. Extensive restorations encompassing multiple units often falls to the experience of trusted preferred vendors like our SERVPRO team.

Burst pipes or faulty appliances are conventional catalysts to substantial loss incidents that leave you needing water cleanup for a Burley apartment building. Though you are often informed of these emergencies immediately from the residents of the building, any time where heavy flow engages sensitive materials like drywall and ceiling tiles could be enough for a destructive result. The professionals you secure to help must have extensive water restoration experience, not to mention the education to safely remove debris and repair damaged structural elements.

Through the movement and path of the water damage as it migrates through the building, it can pick up considerable dust, debris, and dirt. Rubble and deteriorated structural surfaces are also a common element to encounter in the apartments that experience the worst of the water damages, as saturated ceiling and wall materials can buckle under the weight and collapse. Our SERVPRO professionals can address these concerns by shoveling out the heaps of debris and vacuuming up other loose particulates after extraction completes.

With the area somewhat cleaned, our team can finish controlled demolition efforts on areas that have not structurally failed but are too severely damaged to remain. Flood cuts and material removal permits direct access to our centrifugal air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers. With shared wall cavities that can affect multiple properties simultaneously, thorough drying of your building can prevent lingering moisture ideal for microbial development.

Many people depend on a fast and experienced response to any emergency that threatens the apartment building where they live. As the building manager, you should seek out the expertise and the fast response of our SERVPRO of Wood River Valley team. We can help you to make these losses “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (208) 788-0183.

Using A Professional Mold Damage Remediation Specialist For Your Burley Area Restaurant

Simple water intrusions can lead to extensive mold issues, which makes it hard to decide whether your current situation warrants the attention of a professional. Regardless of whether you experienced a leak in a faulty appliance in your kitchen or extensive flood damage in your dining area, getting an expert opinion is always your best bet. 

When dealing with mold damage in your Burley area restaurant, you want to know that everything that could happen gets done to protect your employees and guests. With that said, you should understand some of the steps involved in your mold remediation process, even though other steps may be necessary to do the job right. Remember, safety takes priority over all other circumstances.

SERVPRO mold remediation technicians help contain your mold contamination, preventing the spread to uncontaminated areas, and protecting everyone involved. We work hard to salvage foodstuffs that are stored. Accomplishing our goal of full containment may include the use of a variety or combination of methods. 

Technicians may:

  • Install 6-mil plastic sheeting as barriers.
  • Establish negative air pressure within the contaminated area.
  • Seal the vents in your HVAC to prevent contamination of your duct system.
  • Establish clean and decontamination rooms for entering and exiting the work area. 

Establishing containment in this way helps SERVPRO technicians maintain control, allowing you to continue normal operations in some instances and often helping you avoid losses in revenue while your restoration is underway. However, not all situations allow your doors to remain open. Therefore, we make ourselves available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week so that technicians can perform services after-hours. You gain access to expertly trained professionals when you need them most. 

As your locally owned SERVPRO, we live and work in this community too. We understand your circumstances, are close by and respond, “We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.” Our technicians can perform various containment, cleanup, disposal, drying, deodorization, and mold remediation services specifically designed to adjust to fit your unique situation

SERVPRO Is Prepared to Get Your Burley Business Back After Water Damage

The Technology SERVPRO Uses for Water Removal from Burley Grocery Stores

Over decades of service to business owners across the country, SERVPRO has developed a water removal strategy that maximizes the speed of our services. Efficient water removal work helps to prevent expensive long-term damages (such as mold growth or foundational damage) from happening and reduces the time we need to spend restoring your business to the way it was before the incident. We use state-of-the-art technology for these situations, with large machinery and highly effective tools that allow us to combat water damages in industrial spaces and large commercial establishments. Here are a few of the ways that our technology helps us to remove water from your building.

Industrial-Strength Extraction Pumps

While lightweight, portable water pumps may be sufficient for small-scale water removal projects in Burley, many of the disasters we deal with locally require us to bring out our high-powered industrial water extraction devices. These truck-mounted pumps can rapidly remove standing water from large commercial floor spaces in even the worst situations. Rarely, when disastrous flooding happens to exceptionally large buildings, we may even bring in additional pumps to make sure that all water extraction occurs in a timely fashion.

Strategic Drying Tool Placement

We rely on air movers, powerful fans that create directed air currents, to handle any drying that gets done after we extract standing water from the building. In a grocery store, these air movers are often positioned along aisles and alongside damaged walls to pick up more moisture from the area. Once we have water airborne inside the building, we can then collect and remove it with our thermal dehumidifying devices.

Moisture Detection Technology

Some of our most recent technological advances have been related to our moisture detection equipment. Handheld electronic devices like thermohygrometers and infrared detection tools help us to identify pockets of water and moisture inside your building even in areas where no signs of damage may otherwise be present. Thanks to these tools, we are more effective than ever at finding and eliminating potential sources of additional damage before they can cause further problems for your business.

SERVPRO of Wood River Valley provides 24/7 emergency response services for local homes and businesses facing water and flood damages. Call us at (208) 788-0183 for help or a quote.

We Can Restore Damaged Exhibits And Artifacts In Your Burley Museum After A Flood

5/20/2019 (Permalink)

You can always count on our experts to offer effective solutions with advanced equipment to make flood effects “Like it never even happened.”

Protecting Exhibits And Artifacts In Your Burley Museum

Historical and cultural centers are more common to Burley, and the entirety of the Wood River Valley, than many residents might believe. Entire counties devote buildings to the displays of the rich cultural influences and history, but much like a museum anywhere, disasters prove to be a constant and total threat to these facilities. Especially with scenarios like flooding, exhibits and artifacts become immediately at risk of irreparable damage from oversaturation, moisture damage, and other effects that could result from this situation.

Our SERVPRO professionals understand how vital the recovery of flood damage is for your Burley museum, so we work to respond quickly to these situations with the equipment and experienced personnel to help. We have water restoration specialists with accreditations from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), giving these professionals extensive training with structural drying and content recovery as well as mitigation solutions that the museum’s structural elements require.

With artifacts or exhibits directly affected by floodwater, it is important for our SERVPRO team to remove these items from the premises as promptly as possible. These contents get safely moved to our nearby facility for focused drying, cleaning, and recovery efforts. For documents, we have freeze-drying solutions that can help to prevent the loss of these often one-of-a-kind parchments and decrees.

We realize that excessive moisture and dampness can often be as detrimental to these relics and recovered items from the past. Our professionals can address these concerns with moisture reduction equipment like our Low Grain Refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers and our high-velocity air movers. These machines can work together to force-dry moisture and saturation from the affected areas of the museum.

With many of the historical items, documents, and county and state history on display, flood recovery and restoration must begin immediately when disasters strike. You can always count on our experts at SERVPRO of Wood River Valley to offer effective solutions with advanced equipment to make flood effects “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime you need us at (208) 788-0183.

Water Cleanup From Short Pile Carpets In Burley Office Buildings

Your Burley office building requires upkeep and maintenance to stay operating at its optimal levels. While cleaning and maintenance become routine, disasters can occur that threaten the investment that you have made aesthetically in the office, not to mention preventing your employees from returning to the facility until the damage has gotten restored. Your carpeting throughout the building can often absorb the worst of water damage, and it requires our advanced equipment and expertise to prevent large scale tear out and replacement.

While sometimes water cleanup for your Burley office is little more than using a mop and bucket, many situations require more advanced equipment and approaches than this conventional cleaning method. Our SERVPRO technicians can arrive quickly to an emergency in your building, offering the full measure of our resources in the Green Fleet of service vehicles for extractions and drying to protect and preserve affected materials.

Removing the saturation from the short pile carpets requires several tools in the arsenal of our SERVPRO professionals. From weighted extractors which force water from the subflooring to the surface and our air movers and dehumidifiers which work to remove moisture from the environment, we can make water damage “Like it never even happened.”

Carpeting is already a magnet for dust, debris, and sediment. These particulates collect around the base of the fibers in the carpet, forming a mat of dirt along the base of your short pile. Cleaning these materials regularly can help to protect them throughout their life and even extend the life of the carpeting in your facility beyond its expectations. Our premier steam cleaning and dry-cleaning services can also bolster the aesthetic appeal of your office building for customers and employees.

Protecting your investments in the construction materials of your office building demands a fast response to water damage emergencies. Give our SERVPRO of Wood River Valley restoration technicians the opportunity to show you how our training and advanced equipment can make a positive difference in your building.

WOW!! A Sun Valley Greenhouse Needs Water Removal and Moisture Control?

12/17/2018 (Permalink)

Sun Valley Greenhouse and All COmmercial Structures Benefit from SERVPRO Water Removal and Dehumidification Services

A Commercial Water Removal Team Dries Out a Drenched Sun Valley Garden and Nursery Shop

Watering systems in Sun Valley greenhouses often run overnight to keep plants from drying out in the trapped heat in a greenhouse environment. Kinks in a hose can cause sudden problems that damage inventory and threatens equipment. SERVPRO's professional teams can help restore everything and get your business operations back to normal.
When a greenhouse facility in Sun Valley suffers a disaster from blocked or kinked hoses, commercial water removal teams can fix the problem. SERVPRO specialists use extraction equipment designed to remove water quickly and get the area ready for us to bring in our air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers to alleviate the dense humid condition.
Because a greenhouse is generally humid, we consult with the owner or manager to adjust our expectations regarding the desired moisture content. Overdrying really cannot happen in an intentionally humid space, but when we achieve the correct amount of water vapor in a greenhouse, continued efforts at drying things becomes counter-productive.
Most greenhouses contain drains in floors where excess water can safely run off, but potting soil and other loose materials such as sphagnum moss may clog these drains. When this occurs, we extract standing water with hollow wands that draw the water up and deposit it into secure chambers for easy disposal. This water might contain fertilizer, weed killer, and insecticides. Proper disposal protects our environment.
We must immediately dry out any inventory that becames waterlogged during such accidents or place it on damaged inventory sheets (CCIS.) You can turn these into your insurance adjuster when you file the claim to help your restoration efforts. Any destroyed inventory or equipment requires disposal to prevent microbial and other disastrous effects from occurring inside your facility. If other non-greenhouse locations experienced invasive water, we continue to dry these areas and also make a note of any significant damage to other items that might require replacement or extensive repairs.
If your greenhouse, nursery or other commercial property in Hailey, Gooding, or Ketchum sustains flooding from a watering system gone awry, SERVPRO of Wood River Valley can help with commercial water removal services. Contact us at our 24-hour service number, answered every day of the year, by calling (208) 788-0183. We understand the need to restore normal operations to your business again and can help you by making sure we restore everything “Like it never even happened.”
