Is Your Business Prepared for Winter Weather in Yamhill?

10/17/2022 (Permalink)

A frozen and corroded pipe is shown. We respond to commercial property damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Yamhill County.

Our local team in Yamhill and Tillamook Counties has been restoring commercial property damage for Yamhill businesses for many years. Here are some tips from the Insurance Institute of Business and Home Safety for preventing commercial pipes from freezing this winter:

  • Inspect and seal or repair all cracks, holes, leaks, windows, doors, and other openings on exterior walls with caulk or insulation to prevent cold air from penetrating the wall cavity 
  • Insulate and seal around attic penetrations such as partition walls, vents, plumbing stacks, and electric and mechanical chases 
  • Ensure your pipes in hard-to-reach places like attics, crawl spaces, and outside walls are insulated—wrap pipes and faucets in unheated or minimally heated areas of the building 
  • Make sure your existing freeze-protection devices and alarms are in good working order. Test freeze stats (low-temperature sensing device) and valves before the weather gets cold. 
  • Pipes leading to the exterior should be shut off and drained at the start of winter. If these exterior faucets do not have a shut-off valve inside the building, have one installed by a plumber.  
  • Hire a licensed fire protection specialist to conduct routine maintenance on your sprinkler system. Discuss the system’s exposure to winter weather and potential mitigation options.

ARE YOU READY?

Guess What? The rain is here again! We are faced with the challenge of keeping the water outside of your structures. We need to be diligent with this as water will migrate in for though the smallest leaks in a building. These leaks can cause hundreds or thousands of dollars of damage and reduce the income to your business. The exterior envelope should have an annual inspection.

When inspecting the roof look for broken or missing shingles or any damaged components of the roof. Check the flashing around any pipes or vents that come through the roof. The rain gutters need to be clean of debris and if they are equipped with heated cables they need to checked. Make all the repairs before the rain, snow and freezing weather strikes.

When inspecting the exterior walls of your building look for any damage to the siding, deteriorated or missing caulking around the doors and windows. Make all the repairs.

It starts with one drop of water

5/5/2020 (Permalink)

It’s Only One Drop of Water 


When we think of water damage we picture a flooded bathtub, a broken pipe, a leaking toilet or a major disaster. Although some of the most costly water damage can come from just a drop of water. 
Consider the facts. 
There are about 15,140 drops of water per gallon at the rate of one drop per second. That drip of water will make about 50 gallons of water a week saturating your floors, walls or ceiling. Knowing that mold starts to grow within the first 24 hours of a leak, there will be mold long before the leak is even noticed! 
In the winter when it’s below freezing that drop of water will expand by almost 10% of its size then in no time there will be an ice dam. This could compromise the roof allowing water to seep into to the structure and providing a considerable source of food for dormant mold spores, and yes the mold will grow! Can you imagine that same drop under your home or business only coming from a sewer pipe? Now that’s a problem! 

Because it’s is only a drop it will go unnoticed or worse ignored but it will not remain silent. 
There is good news! The worst of this can be avoided by simply checking the plumbing for leaks on a regular bases and making sure the rain gutters are free of debris. If leaks are found you know you can rely on us to help you restore your home or business. 

Wildfires devastate businesses too!

According to the National Fire Protection Association:   • Public fire departments responded to 1,319,500 fires in 2017. • 499,000 were structure fires- a 5% increase from 2016. 
• 72% of the structure fires were home fires. This is a 1% increase over 2016. 
Structure fire trends are going the wrong direction. Let’s do our part to reduce home fires. Your local fire department has very good information on how to prevent fires. Stop by and see them, they would much rather meet you in their house than in yours!

  • 5,000 floods or flash floods
  • 1,300 torandoes
  • 2 land-falling deadly hurricanes

Approximately 98% of all presidentially declared disasters are weather-related, leading to around 650 deaths per year and nearly $15 billion in damage. Knowing your risk of severe weather, taking action, and being an example are just a few steps you can take to be better prepared to save your life and assist in saving the lives of others.

When fire or water damage puts the things that matter most on the line, you need the very best help on the line as well. That why knowing the easiest ways to contact SERVPRO is so important. Just got to SERVPRO.com on your mobile phone or call 1-800-SERVPRO to get the team that faster to any disaster!

Tip of the Month; Bed Bugs

10/23/2019 (Permalink)

What Are They? 
Bed Bugs are parasitic insects of the Cimicid family that feed exclusively on human blood. They are mostly nocturnal. They can cause skin rashes, allergic symptoms and psychological effects. They have been with us for thousands of years, even though they were almost eradicated in the 1940’s in the developed world. However, they have become resistant to pesticides and have made a comeback. They are here to stay. 

Where Do They Come From? 
The Southwest, Southeast, Eastern US, Washington, and Alaska have a high concentration of Bed Bugs. This puts us at risk of an outbreak here in Oregon. 

Now What? 
As business owners and managers it is crucial to train employees so they can spot Bed Bugs as soon as they arrive. You need to have policies in place to deal with guests or residents that have encountered Bed Bugs. You should also have protocols in place to get rid of the Bed Bugs. 

Bed Bug Prevention (Early Detection) 
There is no way to stop Bed Bugs from being brought into your facility. New folks are arriving every day from all over the world, and bringing their potentially infested personal items with them. You can be Bed Bug free one day and infested the next. 
So, prevention relies on early detection. Bed Bugs must be detected very quickly after they are brought in, hopefully before they bite someone. 

Employees in every department should receive Bed Bug identification training. 
Why everyone? Because employees are located all over the facility and if everybody is looking for Bed Bugs there is a greater chance that they will be discovered quickly. 

How to Get Rid Of Them 

Some pest control firms utilize specialized heating equipment to de-infest furnishings, rooms, and entire dwellings. The procedure involves heating up the infested item or area to temperatures lethal to Bed Bugs. Portable heaters and fans are used to gradually heat the air to 120 - 130°F while monitoring with strategically placed sensors. When dealing with high temperatures remove all aerosol products and check with your fire suppression company to make sure that you DO NOT EXCEED THE WORKING TEMPERATURE OF THE SPRINKLERS! 

While the former methods are helpful, insecticides are widely used by most pest control companies. A variety of EPA-registered materials are available formulated as liquids, dusts and aerosols. Baits used to control ants and cockroaches are ineffective in this case since Bed Bugs feed on blood. Professional-use insecticides such as Temprid®, Transport® and Phantom® tend to be more effective than Bed Bug sprays sold by retailers. Bleach, alcohol, cigarette lighters, etc. should NOT be used to control Bed Bugs. 
Important Note 
It is extremely important that employees do not attempt to treat Bed Bugs themselves. Always have Bed Bug infestations treated by an experienced pest management company. If your current company does not have Bed Bug experience, call us for suggestions or an inspection.

Commercial building maintence

5/9/2019 (Permalink)

Time is Running Out 
We are quickly approaching spring and the tourist season. We only have a short time left to get those maintenance projects wrapped up. I am sure the big major projects are finished or near completion, but what about those little ones that get put off for tomorrow? 
You know the ones, like that electrical breaker that keeps tripping, or that loose deck plank. These kinds of issues:   
MECHANICAL / HVAC 
• Replace dirty air filters. Dirty filters can shorten the life span of the equipment they are in and cause issues with allergens and airborne illnesses. 
• Clean both supply and return air grills, these have the same effect as the dirty filters. 
• Clean and inspect the bathroom and laundry room exhaust fans. 
• Adjust thermostats including the irrigation systems, for the changing season. Don’t forget to factor in daylight savings time. 
• Have the freon checked in the AC units, freezers and walk-in coolers. 
• Elevator pits should be checked for standing water, if found check the sump pump. 
PLUMBING 
• Make sure sinks and tubs drains are clear of hair. 
• Toilets should flush quickly. 
• Inspect and test the irrigation system. Check for drainage in the crawl space. 
• Pour water into all the p-traps to insure they are not plugged and are functioning properly. No one wants to smell sewer gas. 
• Sump pumps should be checked regularly. 

BUILDING ENVELOPE 
• Do a thorough inspection of the decks, stairs and railings. Especially look over the metal brackets, checking for rusted parts that could fail. 
• Check the rain gutters, make sure they haven’t come loose and are free of debris. 
• Look over the siding to make sure it has not come loose during the winter storms. 
• Inspect the window and door caulking, winter can take it’s toll on the caulking. 
• Look the ceilings over, looking for stains or bubbling paint. These are indicators of a leaking roof. 
• On large buildings, look over the expansion joints, if any problems are found address them. 
ELECTRICAL 
• Eliminate extension cords, put them away neatly. 
• Replace any burned out lights, it’s a good idea to use an electrical waterproof spray on the bulb bases when replacing them. 
• The electrical panel box should be cleaned inside and outside especially behind the inside cover. (consult your electrician) 

LIFE SAFETY 
• Test all smoke alarms, make the repairs if needed. 
• Clear all exit corridors and stairways, also check that exit lights are working. 
• Make sure all the fire extinguishers are up to date and accessible. 
• Update the first aid kits. Also, make sure the safety equipment in the pool areas are in good condition and accessible. 
THERE IS NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT 
Look things over, make sure the maintenance is done. With some prevention we should have a great summer. Remember if things do go wrong, SERVPRO has your back. 

Bio-hazard clean up in Hospitality industry

5/8/2019 (Permalink)

From this discussion I learned there are a lot of people that don’t have a good understanding of what biohazards are and why they are dangerous to one’s health.

So what is a biohazard? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

A biological agent or condition that is a hazard to humans or the environment; also:  a hazard posed by such an agent or condition

Bio-Hazard threats can be found anywhere. Your work place, your health provider’s office, the grocery store, your child’s school or day care and even your own home! – Biohazard’s should be handled with extreme caution.

What are some biohazard examples?

  • Human blood and blood products. This includes items that have been contaminated with blood and other body fluids or tissues that contain visible blood.
  • Animal waste. Animal carcasses, body parts, and feces or any bedding material used by animals that are known to be infected with pathogenic organisms.
  • Human body fluids. Semen, cerebrospinal fluid, pleural fluid, vaginal secretions, pericardial fluid, amniotic fluid, saliva, and peritoneal fluid.
  • Microbiological wastes. Common in laboratory settings, examples of microbiological wastes include specimen cultures, disposable culture dishes, discarded viruses, and devices used to transfer or mix cultures.
  • Pathological waste. Unfixed human tissue (excluding skin), waste biopsy materials, and anatomical parts from medical procedures or autopsies.
  • Sharps waste. Needles, glass slides and cover slips, scalpels, and IV tubing that have the needle attached.

Biohazard Safety Levels with Examples

There are 4 levels of biohazards, according to the Centers for Disease Control:

  • Biohazard Level 1: Agents that pose minimal threat to humans and the environment. E. coli, Bacillus subtilis, and Naegleria gruberi.
  • Biohazard Level 2: Agents that can cause severe illness in humans and are transmitted through direct contact with infected material. Examples include HIV, hepatitis B, and salmonella.
  • Biohazard Level 3: Pathogens that can become airborne and cause serious diseases. Examples include tuberculosis and Coxiella burnetii.
  • Biohazard Level 4: Pathogens that pose a high risk of life-threatening disease for which there are no treatments. Examples include the Ebola virus and Lassa virus.

If you find yourself face to face with a potential biohazardous situation that is too big or too dangerous for you to handle on your own, let me know and I will send our trained professional staff to give you the help you need.

Just one drop can cause a lot of damage to your commercial facility

5/2/2019 (Permalink)

It’s Only One Drop of Water 


When we think of water damage we picture a flooded bathtub, a broken pipe, a leaking toilet or a major disaster. Although some of the most costly water damage can come from just a drop of water. 
Consider the facts. 
There are about 15,140 drops of water per gallon at the rate of one drop per second. That drip of water will make about 50 gallons of water a week saturating your floors, walls or ceiling. Knowing that mold starts to grow within the first 24 hours of a leak, there will be mold long before the leak is even noticed! 
In the winter when it’s below freezing that drop of water will expand by almost 10% of its size then in no time there will be an ice dam. This could compromise the roof allowing water to seep into to the structure and providing a considerable source of food for dormant mold spores, and yes the mold will grow! Can you imagine that same drop under your home or business only coming from a sewer pipe? Now that’s a problem! 

Because it’s is only a drop it will go unnoticed or worse ignored but it will not remain silent. 
There is good news! The worst of this can be avoided by simply checking the plumbing for leaks on a regular bases and making sure the rain gutters are free of debris. If leaks are found you know you can rely on us to help you restore your home or business.

When wildfire strikes we are here to help!

4/19/2018 (Permalink)

Even states as wet as Oregon and Washington are affected by wildfires several times a year. When the Eagle Creek fire shut down businesses our phones rang off the hook with concerned business owners. In times like these SERVPRO is the first to call as we are faster to any size disaster. 

Some tips from FEMA to protect you and your property from hazards are as follows:

  • Wear protective clothing 
  • Lock up your business
  • Choose a route away from fire hazards
  • Close windows, vents, doors, and blinds
  • Shut off all utilities, if possible
  • Move flammable items to the center of the building
  • turn on a light in each room to increase visibility of your property
  • Turn off gas lines and propane tanks
  • Connect the outside house to water taps
  • Gather fire tools

These tips along with preparation and quick thinking can and will protect your investments!

How can wildfires affect my business?

4/19/2018 (Permalink)

Aside from evacuations, and lack of travel wildfires can take a much larger toll on your business than most think.

Soot can and will get into your building and can caused for delayed openings if not addresses quickly after fires. 

Even if your windows and doors are shut and your vents are closed, smoke and soot particles can enter your property. Your HVAC system and air ducts can hold large quantities of soot and disperse it all over your belongings. Your local SERVPRO professionals can thoroughly check your HVAC system and ducts for soot particles and remove them from your property.

There are different types of smoke and soot. A Wildfire will burn mostly natural materials, however there are times when wildfires burn man-made materials, which can leave soot particles that are more difficult to remove. 

Post-Construction Needs

Help your apartment residences

12/1/2017 (Permalink)

In an apartment community residence will share walls from the sides and from above and below, sharing spaces. If a water damage occurs, it can get out of hand quickly. As a water damage could not only affect one residence but multiple residences.You can never know when an emergency situation will occur, but it’s in your best interest as a property manager, as well as in the best interest of your residents, to always be prepared for anything. Taking these measures today to help prevent water damage in the future.

  1. Check On Aging Appliances Regularly – If the property you manage includes a fridge, dishwasher, and/or washer/dryer in unit, you should closely monitor the age of the appliances as well as routinely checking them for cracked or damaged hoses or connections. Washer hoses should be replaced about every five years. It’s a good idea to replace washers and dryers before there’s a problem. It may cost more money now, but it could save you a lot of money and a headache or two in the future.
  2. Repair Old or Damaged Roofs When It’s Dry – Don’t wait for a big rainstorm to find out that the roofing at your unit(s) needs replacing. Make routine checkups to monitor the condition of the roof(s) at your property. Make time and room in the budget to make any replacements or upgrades necessary during the dry season so that you can avoid water damage in the wet season.
  3. Stay in Touch with Your Residents and Know When they’re Traveling – Many people go on vacations during the summer. Talk to your residents about having their water shut off while they’re gone or, alternatively, having someone check on their apartment from time to time while they’re gone. If a water leak occurs while they’re away and no one is checking in, a small problem could potentially turn into something much worse.

We are here to help your business

In manufacturing, assembly of the finished product, water from flooding or a major leak can stall lines and keep production halted, making your plant late with orders.

No matter where the water comes from, plant managers and business owners can solve the situation with SERVPRO of Yamhill & Tillamook. We are ready 24-hours a day, and quickly remove standing water with the proper equipment. When the water is extracted we do our best to make sure our equipment is out of the way as much as possible given the situation. So your business can continue to operate while also drying the structure as effectively as possible.

Wherever absorbent or porous materials exist within your plant, water fills the pores and holes. Using water's own properties against it, we heat different areas to speed up evaporation. We also create air currents with large air movers to direct moist air, so it goes exactly where we want it – outside through open windows or toward a desiccant machine or large dehumidifiers.

Without professional water removal services, your plant's interior might seem dry after your employees take care of the problem with mops, squeegees, and towels, but this often results in a more significant problem later if microbial growth starts to occur in areas that didn’t dry properly. SERVPRO professionals can help your plant avoid this much more costly situation. Doing so and quickly responding to your plant's emergency situation can eliminate a substantial amount of future downtime, financial expenses, and other issues.
