Dryer Vent Cleaning with SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile

Dryer Vent Cleaning (Commercial)

You do everything you can to prevent a fire in your business.  You have developed emergency plans, installed sprinklers, developed protocols for electrical and cooking systems, but what about your dryer vents? As a premier provider of commercial fire restoration services, SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile has seen fires from a wide range of sources.  Fires caused from clogged dryer vents are more common than you may think.  Especially in commercial buildings that use dryers on a regular basis.  How do clogged dryer vents cause fires?  The lint trapped in vents can cause limited air flow, making the dryer work harder than usual.  This causes the dryer to get hotter than usual, which makes it overheat and catch fire.  The good news is that annual dryer vent cleanings can prevent this from occurring.  If you haven’t cleaned your dryer vents recently contact SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile at 251-343-0534.  We can set up a cleaning and put you on a preventative maintenance schedule that will protect you and your business.

Your business is what motivates you to get up each day.  It is more than a source of income for you and your employees, it is a source of pride.  You have worked hard to build it and just as hard to protect it. From risk management services, to insurance and even security systems, you have made sure everything is in place to prevent shutdown.  But have you? Did you know that nearly 50% of businesses may never reopen after a disaster? Even small disasters such as a water loss from a busted pipe may shut you down for days, resulting in lost productivity and revenue.  At SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile, we want to help you protect your business and keep it running if the unforeseen should strike. Knowledge is key to preparation. Here are some things to think about:

  • Maintenance - sheck sewer drains, floor drains and water collect systems regularly

  • Sump pumps - if you have these on site, make sure they are tested regularly and have proper battery backups

  • Backflow valves - make sure they are tested and maintained annually

  • Generator fuel tanks - make sure they are in elevated areas that aren’t subject to flooding

  • Sprinkler systems - should be equipped with flow systems and inspected annually

  • Water mains - label all branches to allow for isolation and include a valve diagram chart

Our Emergency Ready Plan (ERP) is a free service we off that can help you check many of these off your planning list.  Call us today at 251-343-0534 to schedule a consultation.

Is Your Property Winter Ready?

12/27/2017 (Permalink)

Rainy and cold weather in the South can have a huge impact on your home or business if you are not properly prepared. This year has been a record year for rainy weather.  Whether it is heavy rain, freezing temperatures, damaging winds, or sometimes ice all can cause serious and costly property damage. While you cannot control the weather, you can take steps to be prepared and help take the sting out of winter weather.

To help prevent costly damages due to weather, consider taking the following precautions to protect your property before colder weather hits.

  • Check your business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Weather, such as wind, heavy rain, ice and snow, can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property and potentially cause personal injuries.
  • Roofs, water pipes and gutters should all be inspected to ensure they are in proper working order. Gutter downspouts should be directed away from your building. Clear gutters of debris that may have gathered during the fall. Leaves and other obstructions can lead to a damming effect, that can lead to roof damage and interior water problems.
  • Inspect property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazer potential.
  • Inspect all handrails, stairwells and entryways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas. Install matts or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present.
  • Protect water pipes from freezing by simply allowing water to drip when temperatures dip below freezing. If pipes are under a cabinet, leave the cabinet doors open allowing warm inside air to circulate around the pipes. If the building has outdoor faucets, consider shutting water off at the main valve in the basement or crawl space. Once the valve is off, open the outdoor faucet to ensure it drains, preventing any remaining water from freezing in the pipe.
  • Ask your SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile Professionals about completing an Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) for your business. The ERP is a no cost assessment to your facility, and provides you with a plan to get back in business fast following a disaster.

When winter weather strikes, call your SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile Professionals to strike back.  We can provide anything from temporary heat, desiccant dehumidification to water damage cleanup and repair.
