Problem with Mold Growth in Your New Britain Offices? Try Calling SERVPRO for Remediation

Removing and Disposing of Commercial Mold Damage Materials in Your New Britain Business

A property manager needs to stay abreast of issues that may affect staff or customers. Uncontrolled mold growth can pose a health risk as well as creating an unpleasant environment by giving off musty odors and soiling nearby by furniture, walls, or ceilings. Running a business requires time and attention, so the last thing you need is a property issue taking away from the day to day processes of your company.

Our services offer quick responses and professional remediation for commercial properties with mold damage in New Britain. We cover large structures like schools as well as smaller single room occupancies. Depending on the scale of your business, SERVPRO can dispatch a crew chief or a full-team of technicians to remediate the property of bothersome mold issues that allows you to get back to running your company.
 
Mold spores proliferate when they come into contact with moisture. The source of the problem can be something like a slow leak, or even a seemingly harmless water spill that has seeped into cavities or materials. Our commercial units can remove flooring to assess the condition of the subfloor and check wall cavities using advanced moisture measuring equipment like thermal imaging cameras.
 
Recurring mold problems are a nightmare for businesses resulting in short-term closures every time microbial growth returns. Persistent mold issues in food establishments can be particularly troublesome. SERVPRO safeguards against recurring damages by applying chemical treatments to all affected areas once they are thoroughly clean. Some of these chemical agents are specially formulated for SERVPRO. Our AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians have the experience and the certification from the IICRC Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification to secure properties.
 
Temporary closures after microbial infestations can impact business revenues. Contact SERVPRO of Middletown / New Britain at (860) 826-5169 to remediate the effects efficiently.

Is your Cromwell Commercial Property ready for winter?

11/27/2018 (Permalink)

All too often winter strikes without warning. As property owners it’s easy to keep pushing off maintenance and winter preparation for one more week, one more day, and then WHOOSH, all of a sudden, the snow and ice arrive in towns like Durham, CT in full force.  

It may seem tedious at first, but preparing your properties for winter is the best way to avoid winter related damage and disaster. Being proactive (before disaster strikes) can save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Taking precautionary measures is the best way to ensure that your Cromwell, CT property stays safe and secure throughout the long New England winter season.

Listed below are some of the most important preparatory steps you can take to avoid property related disasters:

Check your HVAC system: 

Most commercial property owners agree that one of the most important steps to take for winter preparedness is to have your HVAC systems checked. Checking your HVACs throughout the year is optimal practice, but the winter especially. Fix any issues and make sure your systems are running efficiently before the heart of winter.

Insulate water pipes:

Dealing with burst pipes is a nightmare. Throw in snow and ice and the problem gets infinitely worse. Water damage (leaking roofs, flooded basements, and mold) can be both expensive and destructive. Thus, winterizing your water pipes and irrigation system is of the utmost importance. Be sure to hire a professional to conduct an inspection of all your commercial property’s water systems:

  • sprinkler system
  • plumbing
  • exposed pipes

Be sure to properly insulate all exposed pipes and shut off all water systems that aren’t being used during the winter.

Get rid of snow & ice: 

Ensure that your property is ice free. Clean and salt all parking lots, sidewalks, stairs, and entrances (in and around your property). Keeping tenants and guests safe from black ice and slippery spots is a must!

All of the steps needed to fully prepare your property for winter are costly, both in terms of time and money. However, in the long run, taking these precautions is the best course of action. All too often we wait until problems are knocking at our door. Why be reactive when you can be proactive?

Even with astute planning, winter can bring unwanted gifts to home and property owners. SERVPRO of Middletown/New Britain is locally owned and on 24-hour emergency call. In case of leaking roofs, basement flooding, ice damage, water damage and whatever else winter throws at you, our highly trained restoration technicians will have your property back to pre-damage condition and get you back to focusing on what’s most important during the holiday season.

Trust the team that's 'Faster to any disaster' and just a phone call away! Call 860-826-5169.

Compulsive Hoarding Cleanup: SERVPRO of Middletown/New Britain Can Help!

5/3/2017 (Permalink)

Clutter

Don't confuse hoarding with the hobby of collecting. They are two completely different things. Though they both share the common act of holding on to specific items, collectibles tend to have immense value and are stocked in an organized fashion. On the other hand, hoarded items tend to lack value, but hold a psychological attachment making it difficult to discard nonessential articles. The disorganized clutter that follows is often a clear indication that professional cleaning services are needed.


You need a company that understands the psychological aspect of hoarding. Our professionals have the compassion, training, and certification needed to handle any sized hoarding cleanup project. Call us if you have questions about our procedure or if you or someone you know is in need of a professional deep clean, bio hazardous remediation, and/or toxic waste removal. We specialize in restoring homes and apartments for those displaced due to hoarding. Call today 860-826-5169

Everyone should have a plan in place in case of an emergency or disaster. Consider an emergency supply kit.

A basic emergency supply kit could include (but not be limited to) the following recommended items:

  • Water - one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
  • Food - at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter in place
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Manual can opener for food
  • Local maps
  • Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger

These are some of the things to have on hand during an emergency.
