Commercial Building Maintenance

There are some important things to keep in mind in the prevention water damage to a commercial building. Damage and potentially damaging situations are not always obvious when examining your property. The website offers some easy tips to preventing water damage at your commercial building.

Ground Maintenance:
Landscaping and ground maintenance are major components of a complex system protecting a commercial building from water damage. Proper drainage prevents water pooling against your building. Grassy areas, flower beds and trees help absorb water, drawing it away from buildings.

Building Envelope:
Any unwanted water intrusion can significantly impact the value of a commercial property. Protecting the roofs, walls, windows, and other components of ‘the envelope’ (everything that protects in the interior from the elements) is critical to reducing the likelihood of water damage. Periodically check all exteriors for leaks, damage or signs of standing water.

HVAC Systems: 
Proper operation and maintenance of the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system will reduce the risk of water damage to a commercial building.

Renter's Insurance

6/4/2019 (Permalink)

Help protect your property by requiring renter's insurance.

Requiring a tenant to have renter’s insurance is a smart move for any property owner. Here are a few of the benefits of requiring it of all tenants:

  1. Mitigate the Threat of Lawsuits
    The primary reason for requiring tenants to carry renter’s insurance is to lessen the property owner’s chance of being sued. If an uninsured tenant’s belongings are damaged, they may try to sue the owner for reimbursement.
  2. Reduce Your Responsibility
    The landlord’s obligation to relocate a tenant if the leased space becomes uninhabitable varies depending on the specific terms of each lease. Tenants with renter’s insurance do not have the rely on the landlord’s largess for relocation as that is the tenant’s insurance carrier’s obligation.
  3. Weed Out Questionable Tenants
    Prospective tenants who balk at required renter’s insurance are likely tenants you’d rather not have. Renter’s insurance is one the least expensive types of insurance available. If this expense is difficult for them to bear, there may be undisclosed financial concerns.
  4. Cover Your Deductible
    If a tenant inadvertently causes a fire or other catastrophic damages to your building your insurance policy will may cover the repair costs. However, you will be responsible for the deductible, which can be a substantial amount of money. A properly insured tenant’s policy should cover the deductible thereby lessening your risk
  5. Annual Check Ups
    With each year’s lease renewal, be certain to require proof of insurance. Some tenants may allow conditional policies to lapse once they have moved in. Cancelling or allowing a policy to lapse should be grounds to terminate the lease agreement.


Pack Outs

SERVPRO offers packing and storing of commercial and residential furniture during cleaning and restoration.

When disaster strikes your home or business you will very likely need to have your belongings packed and stored while remediation and cleaning are performed. Removing items from the affected areas allows us to work more quickly without risk to your possessions.

Using a proprietary inventory control program, SERVPRO of Dearborn and Dearborn Heights SE carefully inventories all your items, categorizing them as salvageable or unsalvageable. Salvageable items are inventoried, boxed and brought to our facility for cleaning, deodorization and, if needed, disinfection. These items are then stored in our climate control facility until the property own is ready to receive them. Unsalvageable items are itemized and photographed for your insurance claim. Disposal of these items is at the directive of the assigned insurance adjuster.

Water in Commercial Buildings

SERVPRO of Dearborn has specialized equipment for commercial buildings

Work Place Water Damage is Restored by SERVPRO

Water damage in commercial buildings is a surprisingly frequent occurrence. Some of the most common causes of water damage to commercial buildings are as follows:
1. Malfunctioning sprinkler systems
Sprinkler systems work in concert with fire protection systems. While sprinklers are crucial during a fire emergency, they can also cause significant flood damage if they malfunction.

2. Damaged appliances and equipment
If your business has any type of equipment which uses water, you may be at risk for water damage. When appliances fails, water will travel unimpeded around your building. If this happens outside your regular business hours, you could have a substantial amount of water by the time you reopen.
3. Broken pipes and plumbing
Plumbing in a commercial building is used far more frequently than residential systems. This extra stress can cause the system to fail much sooner than private systems.
4. Backed up sewer lines
Commercial sewer line are susceptible to back ups just like residential lines. Should the sewer line to your building back up, realize there are potential dangers in the water coming into your space. Regardless of the color and clarity of the water, any water coming through the sewer line is dirty and is a biohazard.

SERVPRO of Dearborn has specially trained staff and industrial equipment to clean, sanitizer and deodorize any water damage in your commercial building of any size. We are always here to help.

Flooding in a Commercial building

11/28/2017 (Permalink)

Hotels are just one examples of business which cannot close even during an emergency.

Trust SERVPRO of Dearborn to Get Your Business Open After Flooding

A water loss in a commercial building cannot wait for clean up. Fortunately, SERVPRO of Dearborn has the equipment, training and experience to eliminate the effects of any plumbing failure and keep the doors open.

Commercial carpets are typically much easier to dry that residential carpet as they do not have a pad underneath and rest on a concrete floor. Also the service areas tend to be larger and more accessible. These factors make drying less complicated than a residential water loss. Although each case is unique, the typical process is as follows...

SERVPRO of Dearborn technicians use extraction wands to remove water from the floor. Depending on the size of the area, we use either hand-held wands, similar to wet/dry vacuum found in most home workshops or a much larger device a team member stands on to drive across the room. We can extract several large rooms in just a matter of hours. 

Technicians then set up dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air. They also strategically place units to draw out water absorbed into the walls. Each of our machines can remove over 25 gallons per day.
To aid the dehumidifiers, we set up fans to draw in warm, dry air replacing the cold, damp air. To dry the structure, technicians install air movers which blow heated air into walls and ceilings to expedite drying.
Flooding does not mean shutting down a business for weeks or even days. SERVPRO of Dearborn can help you reopen your doors quickly. If you need our services, call today at (313) 359-4357.
