9/2/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO team at a job-site Commercial damage restoration services for your business need to be handled by SERVPRO. We have the manpower and equipment.

You can be Prepared for Water Mitigation and More

The Emergency READY Profile (ERP) from SERVPRO helps businesses prepare for disasters by giving their employees a dedicated series of steps to take when a disaster strikes. The ERP keeps the overall costs of water mitigation manageable in Bellevue.

The ERP is a no-cost program that helps us arrive as quickly as possible to start working on saving your business in Bellevue. Water mitigation work helps protect your business from needing additional services related to the initial disaster. The information business owners include in their Profile means we can provide a highly targeted and precise response.

When your business requires water mitigation or other disaster-related response, you want experienced professionals who know how to work efficiently. The ERP is something all businesses can benefit from, regardless of their size. Companies that add our ERP to their disaster preparedness plan fare much better than companies that decided not to use the program. Here are some major benefits of enrolling in SERVPRO’s ERP:

  • Accessibility for all managers through our apps,
  • Includes information to help keep your employees safe, and
  • Details on unique information regarding your facilities.

Information regarding insurance, permission for services, the location of shut-off valves, and other crucial information is accessible through our ERP. These details are available via our app, which is compatible with both Android and Apple phones.

Evacuation plans show the quickest route out of a building while occupied. Not all disasters happen during off-hours, and your employees are your most valuable asset. The ERP can show areas to avoid, also, or that require specialized gear before entering.

You can include helpful explanations of interior architecture that might create hindrances to our technicians or their equipment, like split levels that might become hidden in a water emergency. Out-of-the-way entrances to your building that we can use can help by keeping your usual entryways open in their customary manner.

Cleaning Content During Fire Restoration in Bellevue Restaurants

Fire incidents in eateries can cripple the business, but a fast and efficient response is the best way to get back on track. Hiring professionals like SERVPRO for fire cleanup of your commercial Bellevue properties can limit the extent and severity of the damage to the contents. 

SERVPRO techs use various cleaning strategies to quickly remove smoke and soot residue during the fire restoration of your Bellevue property. Some of the methods that we routinely use in restorative cleaning of the contents in fire-damaged commercial properties include-

  • Dry cleaning
  • Wet cleaning
  • Abrasive cleaning
  • Immersion cleaning

The choice of the cleaning method depends on the nature of the soot and the damaged item.

What is Immersion Cleaning?

Immersion cleaning is most effective for materials that can withstand being completely saturated with a cleaning agent. The item requiring soot removal is dipped in a bath of the cleaning product, and the soils are loosened with scrubbers.

Ultra-Sonic Cleaning

One easier and less labor-intensive type of immersion cleaning SERVPRO techs use in Bellevue properties involves ultrasonic sound waves. In this method, high-frequency sound waves provide the agitation required to loosen the soils. Millions of tiny bubbles are created in the liquid in an ultrasonic tank as the sound waves repeatedly compress and expand the molecules.

The bubbles implode in seconds creating high temperatures and microscopic jet streams that provide agitation to loosen the soils. The energy (frequency) of the sound waves and the cleaning agent used depends on the type of residue. SERVPRO techs spend several hours mastering the use of this method to clean fire-damaged contents.

Here's how we can assist:

Our Services Include:

  1. Textile Restoration: We specialize in restoring textiles and fabrics damaged by water intrusion, ensuring they are returned to their preloss condition.

Certified CRT Technicians

To become a practicing CRT technician capable of performing commercial water damage restoration in Bellevue, our experts complete two essential certifications: Carpet Cleaning Technician (CCT) and Commercial Carpet Maintenance Technician (CCMT). These qualifications ensure that our restoration technicians possess the necessary expertise. CRT technicians can make informed decisions regarding natural versus synthetic dyes, assess fiber types in materials, and address common problems such as color loss due to bleaching. Ultimately, SERVPRO technicians can swiftly evaluate each damaged fabric exposed to water and often restore them to their preloss condition.

Color Matching and Redyeing

In cases where water exposure causes watermarks or fading, we can expertly color match your business's textiles and re-dye them to eliminate these issues. Our industry-leading training minimizes the risk of cleaning agents inadvertently causing further harm to textiles or their color.
