A commercial building is abuilding that is used for commercial use. Types can include office buildings, warehouses, or retail. In urban locations, a commercial building often combines functions, and can often times have several companies in one large commercial building with levels and floors that reach into the double digits. SERVPRO has the experience with commercial jobs that many others may not know! To operate on a commercial job is a scale up meaning more equipment, more manpower, planning knowledge, correct pricing and overall experience. 

Residentials are far more different than commercial jobs. As both are taken with extreme care and detailed commercial jobs tend to be larger and damages tend to be more in depth meaning they can be tougher than most. This isn't always the case but it's the realty more often than not. With different forms and more people involved then just you and the homeowner the process can sometimes be longer if insurance is involved and SERVPRO knows that we have done several commercial jobs and will continue to do more as they come. 

SERVPRO helps commercial customers with a wide variety of cleaning, construction and restoration projects, both large and small. When your commercial property is suddenly hit with damage due to a storm, flood, fire or other disaster, it can leave you, your employees and customers in shock.

In Flagler County we have hurricane season, which has been known to cause a great deal of water damage.

What you need to know about emergency fires!

1/15/2023 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Restoration Fire damage is one of the more serious damages as it not only puts your life at risk but also your home and lifestyle!

What does a fire need?

Heat is the first and most essential element that a fire needs. A fire can't even start or spread unless there's a significant amount of heat involved. Fuel is the second element found in the fire triangle. The fire will need a fuel source in order to continue to burn. The fuel can be anything that's flammable such as paper, wood, fabric, chemicals or combustible materials. Oxygen is the last element in the fire triangle. It's also one of the more important factors because oxygen is everywhere. A fire needs oxygen in order to ignite and continue to burn.

How do most fires start?

  • Cooking Accidents
  • Heating Systems 
  •  Intentional Fires 
  • Cigarettes
  • The Dryer 
  • Chemical Fires
  • Grills
  • Overloaded Power Boards
  • Holiday Lights
  • Faulty Wiring
  • Faulty Appliances
  • Charging Appliances

If you want to keep you and your home safe from fire, knowing how house fires start is one way to stay proactive. Take the precautions necessary and you can keep yourself, your family, and your entire home from getting burned. Have a family meeting and discuss what to do in the event of a fire. While you cannot know when or if a fire will start, you can reduce the risk to your family by having an evacuation plan.

What to do in the event of a fire?

According to the National Fire Protection Association, house fires are responsible for more than 2,600 fatalities per year. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are fire protection steps you can take to keep your family safe in the event of a home fire. If you can extinguish the fire, do so thoroughly. If not, run for safety and call for help. To make your way through a fire, crawl beneath the smoke and be sure to avoid going through doors that are hot. Remember to GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL 9-1-1 or your local emergency phone number. 

After the fire is put out and the damage is assessed allow our SERVPRO team to come in and restore your home or place of business to the best of our abilities! Our goal is to make it "like it never happened". Fire damage can easily be the toughest damage that we see. This is because fire damage can not only burn structure to an ash but also because if the fire department has to use a large amount of water, then we are looking at water damage as well. SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach is on call 24/7 and wants to be on site as soon as possible to get everything cleaned up and restored in no time. We also deodorize as soon as possible so that fire odor doesn't stick around, and you can breathe. Our technicians are trained to get your place looking how it looked pre-fire with top-of-the-line equipment and customer service.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Fires in the Workplace?

1/11/2023 (Permalink)

Most people are concerned with fire prevention in their homes, but it’s also vital to consider potential fires in the workplace. There were 123 fatalities due to injuries from fires and explosions in 2021, per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Offices, restaurants, hotels, and other facilities are full of potential fire hazards. To avoid fires and costly fire restoration, it’s important to be aware of these dangers. The following are some of the most common causes of workplace fires that your business should prevent. 

3 Common Causes of Workplace Fires

1. Flammable Materials

If you work in an industry that uses flammable materials like propane, natural gas, or combustible vapors, be sure to handle storage well. If these substances ever come in contact with a flame, they could start a fire or even cause an explosion. These significant accidents can make fire restoration more difficult. Protect your workers by properly storing flammable substances away from electrical sources. 

2. Faulty Electrical Wiring

Electrical equipment is one of the top causes of workplace fires. If the wiring is old or damaged, it could overheat and combust. Overloaded outlets could also be a hazard, leading to major damage requiring fire restoration. To prevent fires caused by defective wiring, be sure to have your business’s electrical work inspected regularly. You should also avoid overloading circuits and talk to an electrical professional about how to best arrange electronics. Create policies to prevent employees from using risky high-wattage or high-heat appliances like personal space heaters in the office. 

3. Negligence 

Many fires happen due to accidents and human error. This could include improper disposal of cigarettes at a work site or leaving an open flame unattended. Your business may also have outdated fire safety measures or hard-to-reach fire extinguishers, causing a small flame to turn into a powerful blaze. To avoid fires due to negligence, be sure that all of your employees are well-versed in fire safety and response. 

If you need fire restoration after a workplace incident, call the team at SERVPRO of Flagler County. We offer water damage restoration, fire restoration, water extraction, mold remediation, and emergency cleaning services for Florida residents and businesses. We will customize a plan to fit your needs, so you can move on with your life as soon as possible. Call us at 386-447-2202 to schedule an appointment.

We know hurricanes can be scary, life changing and even deadly at times. SERVPRO of Flagler county can prepare you before the storm, help you during a storm and service you after a storm.

What to expect from a major storm?

Your typical storm will bring strong wind gust and heavy rain along with severe lightning. A hurricane will bring that on levels that can be devastating, which is why we should always expect and prepare for the worst. You should expect one of these storms to put your power out at some point which can be frustrating but it does happen. Flagler has suffered from many storms in the past and most people know what to expect but we can never underestimate the power of these storms and never be prepared enough. You can also expect flooding as we are located in an area prone to flooding. These major storms tend to pack a punch but it's noting that we can't over come together as a community.

How to prepare for a storm?

There are several tactics and tips for storms, in fact you can see some here : Storm Tips. For hurricanes in particular its best to plan ahead and purchase goods that can be stored at room temperature. During power outages your going to want a cooler to place items that are refrigerated. If you have a leak somewhere now is the time to get that taken care of and to call us. We will also post on our social media story's tips and places you can go to fill dirt and sand bags to help prevent water from intruding your property. Its best to also keep an eye on all of your appliances because some may malfunction and leak water with the power outages, so find that handbook! Got mold? Well now is the time to get that remediated because in due time it will spread like a wild fire and these storms are food to mold and needless to say you will probably be spending a lot of time inside during a major storm.
