When You Have Water Damage In Your Business You Need Help Now!

7/15/2021 (Permalink)

empty office with standing water When you have water damage in your business you need a team to help you get back in business fast.

Water damage in your business can be an immediate and urgent issue. Even a small leak can create a big problem for the structural integrity of the property, not to mention the possibility of dangerous mold growth.  A backup in your building can mean extensive repair needs. What should you do when you have water damage of any type?

Call a Professional to Remove the Water

The first step is always to remove any standing water. This can be done by pulling the water out using pumps. It is never recommended that you run your HVAC when you have standing water or wet surfaces to dry them out. That can distribute mold and mildew throughout the building. Properly drying the entire surface is critical and ensures mold does not develop. This is an important reason to have a professional water damage restoration company like SERVPRO of the Spokane Valley do the work.

Work to Repair the Damage

Water damage creates more than just wet surfaces. It can damage some surfaces – such as carpeting and drywall – extensively. These areas need to have all damaged material removed. After proper cleaning and sanitizing of surfaces, it is then necessary to ensure the building is restored properly, according to code.

Working with a commercial contractor with experience in water damage restoration is a critical step. Our team at SERVPRO of The Spokane Valley has the experience you need. Let our professionals evaluate your commercial space to create a treatment and restoration process that is fitting to your specific goals. Call us anytime 24/7 and we'll be ready to help. 509-926-6140.

You want to get your property back up and running fast.

This ensures no mold is growing at your property, putting your employees and customers at risk.

Simple Fire Prevention Tasks for your Business in Spokane

Fire Extinguisher Spokane Valley

You’ve heard all of the preventative steps, you’ve prepped your employees, and your building is up to code. However, the easiest prevention methods are usually the most overlooked. Some of the biggest ways to avoid needing fire damage restoration services are usually some of the quickest to check. Inspect these things today and be sure to set reminders accordingly:

  • Smoke Detectors. Safety experts say that you should check these at least once a month and replace the batteries once a year, or as needed.
  • Fire Extinguishers. See the directions on your fire extinguisher to see when it expires and who you can call to replace your extinguishers. Extinguishers can last anywhere from five to fifteen years. Also, depending on your fire marshal’s standards, you may have to have your extinguisher certified.
  • Fire Exits and Exit Signs. Can guests clearly see exit signs? Can they easily get to them? Consider having a fire drill to ensure guests and employees can easily get out of the building in the event of an emergency. Practice regularly.
  • See any State or Local Guidelines. There are some local and state guidelines that businesses have to follow to stay up to code. Take a minute to read up on these laws or talk to your local fire marshal to learn about the guidelines.

Keeping your business, employees, and guests safe is important. Just by taking the time to make sure the basics of fire safety are taken care of, you can protect your investment.

SERVPRO Spokane Valley is locally owned and operated, so we are part of this community too. When you have a smoke or fire damage emergency, we’re already nearby and ready to help. We take pride in being a part of the Spokane community and want to do our part in making it the best it can be.

The Truth About Commercial Mold Removal and Mold Remediation in your Spokane Valley business.

6/15/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Growth Spokane Commercial Bathroom

Many contractors and even mold removal companies will try to confuse you as to the difference between mold removal and mold remediation. Some will try to tell you that for a small mold issue, you can get mold removal, but for a larger more dangerous issue, you’ll need a more complicated, and expensive, mold remediation. Out of fear, many will choose to go with remediation and spend the extra money. That makes sense, mold can be extremely dangerous, causing severe illness and other problems for your employees and regular customers, but the fact is that mold removal and mold remediation are interchangeable terms that mean the same thing!


Mold is endemic in our environment, meaning you can find it almost everywhere that water and oxygen are present. 

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Every mold damage scenario is different, and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:

  1. Emergency Contact - (509) 926-6140
  2. Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
  3. Mold Containment
  4. Air Filtration
  5. Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
  6. Cleaning Contents and Belongings
  7. Restoration

SERVPRO Spokane Valley is locally owned and operated of over 25 years—so we live and work here too and are proud to be part of this community. We are proud to provide mold remediation services in our local businesses.

Tips to prevent mold growth in you local business in Spokane

4/10/2018 (Permalink)

Mold damage Spokane Valley

The very idea of mold can make any home or business owner cringe. it can also be a really big problem when it is growing undetected somewhere on your business or belongings.

It can grow just about anywhere: on clothing, food, paper, carpet and the backside of drywall, just to name a few spots. It can produce allergens and irritants and, in some cases, toxins that are dangerous to your health.

Here are four steps you can take to protect your business and employees from a mold issue:

  • Do an audit of your property. Are there any areas that are full of moisture much of the time? Seepage into storage areas or accumulation from leaky pipes should be dried within 48 hours to avoid mold damage. Encourage workers to keep wet items picked up, hanging wet coats up and keeping rain boots and wet shoes in an area that won’t soak up moisture. Take steps to keep floors and windows dry at all times, but especially during wet weather.
  • Proper ventilation is a good way to keep mold at bay. Keeping bathroom and kitchen doors open can help, increasing air circulation and aiding in the drying process. Using dehumidifiers keeps areas dry and pleasant, and always keep an eye on them to make sure they are in good repair and not contributing any moisture themselves; the manufacturer’s information provided will give directions on cleaning and care of your unit.
  • Many products today contain mold-resistant materials, such as sheet-rock or paint. Shop around for helpful products when doing any renovation or repair to your Spokane business, especially in areas that will experience moisture, such as kitchens, break rooms, and bathrooms.
  • Monitoring the humidity indoors in your Spokane business can go a long way to mold prevention. The EPA recommends keeping indoor humidity between 30 and 60 percent; you can measure this with a moisture meter easily found at your local hardware store.

Tips for preventing frozen pipes in your Spokane Valley Apartment

12/29/2017 (Permalink)

Broken pipe Spokane Valley

Frozen pipes are a real danger during the winter. When frozen pipes burst, you could be looking at flood damage and ruined possessions. And worse, depending on your renters insurance coverage, you may not be covered for reimbursements and repairs. That’s why renters should be especially vigilant about preventing frozen pipes during the Spokane winters. After all, the last thing you want is to come home from a hard days work to a dripping wet apartment.

Fortunately, there are several things you can do to avoid the perils of frozen pipes. Protect your pipes from freezing by using these 5 simple tips.

1. Set your thermostat.

Whether you are simply at work all day or are gone for a week-long vacation, never turn your heating off completely when you are gone from your apartment for an extended period of time. Your minimum thermostat setting in winter should be 55°F.

2. Open your cabinet doors.

Pipes that are located in cabinets are isolated by closed cabinet doors, making it harder for them to stay warm. Open your cabinet doors so that the warm air in the rest of the apartment can circulate around the pipes to help keep them from freezing.

3. Clear your gutters.

If your apartment is located on the top floor, you or your landlord should make sure gutters are clear so icicles or dams won’t form. If you’re concerned about doing it yourself, contact your apartment’s maintenance team.

4. Keep your garage door closed.

If your apartment has a garage, make sure you keep the door closed when temperatures are freezing. This prevents exposing water supply lines that run through the garage.

5. Let your faucets drip.

If you know temperatures will reach freezing, let your faucets drip, whether you’re at home or away. Even a small amount of water running through an exposed pipe helps prevent it from freezing.

Plan ahead for leaks and mold damage in your Spokane Valley Restaurants

12/29/2017 (Permalink)

Spokane restaurant

Leaks can happen in any business. Your Spokane restaurant maybe at risk from leaking appliances such as dishwashers, seepage from windows or roofs, or burst pipes. After a leak, there is a genuine risk of mold damage, which is something no business owner wants. In particular, there is a risk of mold growing in food storage spaces which could lead to spoilage and the costly loss of your stock. That is why it is important to plan to prevent leaks and therefore mold damage in your business.

Mold Damage is unsightly, and naturally, you want to take all the steps you can to prevent it happening in your Spokane Valley restaurants. One way you can plan is by carrying out a risk assessment and putting guidelines in place for what to do in the event of a leak. The sooner you deal with water in your premises, the less chance there is of damp settling in and giving mold a place to grow.

The first step is a risk assessment. Contact SERVPRO of Spokane Valley (509-926-6140) and a representative will provide a free Emergency Ready Profile (ERP). It only takes a short time to have a professional do one. 

Take a look at all the places water could enter, or leak or spill: Appliances, windows, doors, the basement, sinks, and faucets. Check for leaks or damage, and get necessary repairs done as soon as possible. Get your staff into the habit of cleaning up spills immediately.

Check out where your food is stored and make sure it is dry, so mold cannot form (the spores need moisture to grow). Plan how to keep food safe from damp in the event of a leak, perhaps by moving it to a different location in your store, or even to another location in the area.

SERVPRO of the Spokane Valley is on hand to help dehumidify and dry your premises before mold has the chance to grow. Our IICRC-certified technicians use moisture probes and penetrating moisture meters to look for hidden patches of damp and make sure your premises is thoroughly dry.

Some items such as equipment will need to be restored in place and then sanitized to ensure a healthy environment is restored.

Appearances are only on the surface; we want to restore your business to a healthy state. After a flood an important aspect of our cleaning is eliminating the odors that also come with flood damage. If the odor remains, we know that there is something remaining that is causing it. We'll work to find the source of the odor, remove it, and if the odor remains, as it sometimes does, we'll deodorize, as well.

For structural damage, we have professionals who can restore the interior areas that were damaged by the floodwaters or fire. Our technicians can decrease the drying time of other materials by increasing the ventilation in conjunction with raised temperatures.

When flood or fire damage is affecting your business, call SERVPRO of the Spokane Valley @ (509)926-6140. We're there for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including holidays.
