How to Prevent Mold Growth in the Workplace

8/28/2020 (Permalink)

The best way to prevent mold is to control moisture. The main requirements for outdoor mold growth are moisture and shade. Mold does not like the sun and/or ultra violet rays. The main requirement for inside mold growth is simply moisture and it can occur in ceilings, attics, floors, insulation, wood, drywall, clothes, carpeting, bathrooms, and more. Some causes of excessive moisture are condensation, humidity, cooking, washing, or water from a flood, leak or spill. Mold also grows in environments with a warm temperature. Mold growth can begin in less than 48 hours of excessive moisture.

What you can do as a business owner to prevent mold growth from forming in your place of business:

  • Fix water leaks. Any known water leaks should be fixed quickly. Have a contractor inspect for unknown leaks.
  • Limit condensation. Keep room temperatures warm and/or well insulated.
  • Reduce humidity. Open windows, install exhaust fans or use a dehumidifier.
  • Clean wet/damp areas. Any wet or damp area, materials or affected equipment should be cleaned within 48 hours to prevent mold growth.

If your business has experienced water damage or mold growth, please do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Flower Mound / Lewisville today!

SERVPRO® of Flower Mound / Lewisville will Deep Clean your Dallas area Restaurant

Obviously, a restaurant's preparation areas should be kept clean. But, besides the everyday cleaning of kitchen equipment and appliances, it is necessary to perform a deep cleaning of kitchens at least once to twice a year.

Appearance

A restaurant's: atmosphere, attention to detail, and well-kept facilities are important for a customer's good first impression. The appearance of a restaurant's kitchen can bring in clients as well as scare them away.

Safety

A messy and unorganized look will affect guests' appetites as well as employee productivity. Daily mopping sustains a clean floor, but will not scrub deeply enough to remove certain bacteria. Sticky floors and unwanted objects can cause personnel or guests to slip. For a truly clean floor, it is important to remove: grease, oil, gum and even mold.

For a deep cleaning of your restaurant, please call SERVPRO® of Flower Mound / Lewisville today!

Our team was called out over the weekend to assist a local Flower Mound commercial facility with their water loss. The owner of the business was going in to take care of a few things and check in when he opened the front door to find water covering the carpeted floor. Water flowed throughout their warehouse, office, and reception area causing a little bit of panic!

We were contacted and onsite fast to begin the restoration process. After quite a bit of extraction, we walked the customer through the entire process and made sure to answer all of his questions. Our team placed drying equipment throughout the facility, monitored the drying process throughout the weekend, and completed the drying in just a few short days. Thank you for trusting our team to restore your business back to preloss condition!

wet storage boxes That's one way to soak up the water!

Being able to perform emergency restoration services and help those in need is very rewarding! We travel all over the metroplex however, our home is in Flower Mound and Lewisville. We were fortunate enough to have our neighbors give us a call when they experienced a loss in their office! 

Now if you haven't been to this office, they have dark green and navy carpet throughout their facility so you aren't really able to get a good look at the water damage. The photo attached shows boxes in their storage room that have soaked up the water about halfway up! Over the years they have seen us coming and going and have been lucky enough not to require our services. As soon as they saw the water they knew who they could trust to restore their property! 

Using a Portable Fire Extinguisher

10/23/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Extinguisher PASS Method Educate yourself prior to a loss happening.

A portable fire extinguisher can be a life and property saving tool when used correctly. In order to operate a fire extinguisher, the NFPA suggests remembering the word PASS.

  • Pull the pin. Hold the nozzle pointing away from you and release the locking mechanism.
  • Aim low. Point the fire extinguisher at the base of the fire.
  • Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly. 
  • Sweep the nozzle from side to side. 

Read the instructions on the fire extinguisher and become familiar with them before a fire breaks out. Encourage your co-workers to do the same. Remember, extinguishers do have their limitations! It is also important to ensure you have the correct type of extinguisher for your business. Keep an eye out for our next blog discussing the 5 different classes of fire extinguishers.
