Preparing your Business, Home for a Flood & Fire with ERP

3/19/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial Preparing your Business, Home for a Flood & Fire with ERP SERVPRO of North Central Mesa can help with any of your properties.

How to prepare your Business or Home for a Flood or Fire

What is ERP? Why should every home and business have one?

In a best-case scenario, we never have to worry about emergencies such as water damage, fire damage, or other disastrous situations. But, they come when we least expect it and usually when we are the least prepared for it! Many businesses and homes have a plan to get out of the building if a disaster arises but don’t have a clear idea of what to do next. The reality is that the quicker water or fire damage is controlled and cleaned up, the less it costs you or your insurance and the less time you are out of your home or business!

When you are talking about dealing with water damage, the mold should always be on your mind. Not taking care of the water damage can quickly lead to a massively expensive mold issue. If not tended to it can double or triple the repair costs and time from the original water damage issue. Having a company on call who can respond within 1 to 2 hours can have a significant impact on keeping mold growth to a minimum or eliminate possible mold growth in the first place.

ERP stands for Emergency Ready Profile. The designed for building with 100,000 square feet or less. It is intended to be a quick and easy snapshot of the building or home to provide relevant information in the case of an emergency. In the case of a business disaster only 40% of the businesses who face a disaster end up closing (Forbes.com). Of the 60% who do not close, 75% of them had an emergency plan of action.

The ERP contains

  • An Emergency Action Checklist
  • Building shut off points for water and electricity with pictures.
  • Emergency contacts
  • Insurance information for the Building and contents
  • Utility Service contact information with account numbers
  • Property Overview
  • Primary Contacts

A copy of the ERP can be printed out in a paper form or kept in an electronic form with the FREE Ready Plan App by SERVPRO that can be on an Android or IOS Device. The App is downloaded to every employee or family member’s mobile device, and your ERP is shared across devices, so everyone has the same plan of action!

(IOS Platform APP - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ready-plan/id489247430)

(Android Platform APP - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.SERVPRO.app)

You can complete the ERP yourself, or you can request to have a local SERVPRO professional come out and create your custom ERP utterly free of charge.

According to OSHA, “The most effective way to handle a crisis is to prepare in advance by creating an Emergency Action Plan.”

Five ways to know if your home needs Air Quality Testing Company

3/19/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Five ways to know if your home needs Air Quality Testing Company One our of recent Mold Jobs. You don't want this in your home or business. Give SERVPRO of North Central Mesa a call today.

Five ways to know if your home needs 
Professional Air Quality Testing Company

Generally, as a preventative measure, we recommend that homeowners get Air Quality Testing done once per year. 

However, there are certain conditions that would indicate that you should have your home's air quality tested as soon as possible! Professional Air Quality testing can be expensive (averaging around $300), but catching an issue such as a mold problem early can save thousands of dollars! We suggest putting away $25 per month and getting a test done at the end of the year.

And now what you all have come here for!

5 ways to know if your home needs Professional Air Quality Testing

  1. You find a mold spot.
    You may be tempted to use a DIY home test to test the mold, but those tests only give you information on specific surface spots. Professional testing gives you a lot more useful information that can help you stave off a major mold problem. It can also tell you if you need professional mold remediation.
  2. You notice an old or stuffy smell, or you see that your house smells different than usual.
    This could signal a mold problem or it could be something else such as water damage (pre-mold water damage), old or damage carpet, etc. It's always best to know what you are dealing with in that situation.
  3. There has been chimney damage or reconstruction.
    If repairs or reconstruction has been done to the chimney in your home and it wasn't done correctly smoke from your fire could have problems escaping your house. This could cause smoke damage to your home. More importantly, though, that could cause respiratory and breathing issues for your family, especially if someone in your home has breathing issues such as asthma. A complete blockage is much more noticeable than limited air flow blockage. These issues can be detected when a professional air quality test is performed.
  4. You notice that your air is not circulating naturally.                    When air is not circulating properly in your home, it can have a negative impact on your energy bill. This is something that can really hit your bank account over time. Not only that, but stagnant air can become a breeding ground for germs and create an environment that increases your chance of getting sick or getting over being sick.
  5. You have noticed a general change in your health.
    No one likes to be sick! Most people spend a significant amount of time in the home. If any air quality issues stem from airborne pollutants or stagnant air, you can have a hard time fighting off illnesses and recovering from the cold or the flu. Having a cold or the flu aren't the only issues that can affect your overall health if there are air quality issues in your home.  According to the CCOHS (the Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety - Yes, we know they're Canadian, but they have a lot more going for them than Hockey, Ryan Gosling, and half of the world's Polar Bear population…) linked to air quality problems:
  • Dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Hypersensitivity and allergies
  • Sinus congestion
  • Coughing and sneezing
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea

Having your home or work's air quality tested every year may seem like a costly nuisance, but it is well worth the trouble and the cost considering what you could be dealing with if there are health or home issues that go on undetected.  If you have any questions about getting your air quality tested, please feel free to reach out to us at (480) 553-7103. We don't do testing ourselves, but we can be your unbiased 3rd party consultant.

Mold Found in an apartment Unit

Mold Remediation Mold Found in an apartment Unit The apartment was sure there was a smell coming from a building, I think it might be some Mold growth. Need a Mold removal company? Here we are.

Tennet says there is an odd moldy smell coming from the Walls in an Apartment Complex

Mold or growth as we call it here at SERVPRO of North Central Mesa can be very hazardous although not all mold is equal.

No two mold jobs are alike, no two Fire jobs are alike, no two water jobs are alike, neither are forensic, biohazards, or hoarding cleanup jobs none are just the same as the one before it. 

Before shows like A&E "Hoarders" or "Buried Alive," hoarding is the relatively unknown mental illness. Reality TV shows the worst-of-the-worst of these situations. TV blows things out of proportion. They want all the eye's on their show and don't want you to look away for even an instant. It's like a train wreck; they want to show the gross parts just enough to keep your interest. 

So really how accurate are all these different shows? Most will agree to watch a tv show documenting a crew attempt to clean out a disaster scenario is not an accurate depiction of what goes into jobs such as storm or water damage that was left untouched and has cause mold growth, or the most common area of mold growth, the bathroom, from lack of proper ventilation.

 Hoarders come in all shapes and sizes, involving many different types of items from trash to treasures, like rare books and other contents. 

You can find a hoarder in any place from the cheapest apartments in town to the most expensive neighborhoods. If your friends, family, and loved ones have a hoarding problem and you need someone to come trash out the place for you to start from square one, you know who to call.
