When a commercial building experiences a puffback, it typically involves the sudden release of soot or smoke into the building from the heating system. This can happen due to a variety of reasons, such as a malfunctioning burner or ignition system, improper ventilation, or a buildup of debris in the heating system.

Here's some advice on what to do if a commercial building experiences a puffback.

Holiday fire Hazards

11/16/2022 (Permalink)

Colorful lights, burning candles, and festive decorations are just a few of the items bring charm and cheer to the holiday season--however, if they are not used carefully, your holidays may go from festive to frightening.  The American Red Cross offers the following safety tips to help greatly reduce the fire risk in your home or business this holiday season:

  • Place Christmas trees, candles, and other holiday decorations at least three feet away from heat sources like fireplaces, portable heaters, radiators, heat vents, and candles.
  • Make sure light strings and other holiday decorations are in good condition.  Do not use anything with frayed electrical cords, and always follow the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Always unplug tree and holiday lights before leaving the property or going to bed.
  • Never use lit candles to decorate a tree.  Always extinguish candles before leaving the room or before going to bed.
  • Use only sturdy three stands designed to not tip over.  Keep curious pets and children away from Christmas trees. Keep anything that can catch on fire--like pot holders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, food packaging, towels, or curtains--away from your stove top.
  • Designate one person to walk around your property to ensure all candles and smoking materials are properly extinguished after guests leave.

Levels of Fire Damage

11/16/2022 (Permalink)

Fire damage is a multi-step process that minimizes the extent of a fire loss and ultimately saves the Homeowner money through restoration vs. replacement.

Three Levels of Damage:

  • Minor- Smoke residues affect only certain rooms or areas. The amount of smoke residues is light to moderate.  Restoration may involve dry cleaning and/or wet cleaning of ceilings, walls, floors and contents.  Few areas need to be repainted and only minor items require replacement.
  • Medium-Smoke residue is moderate, and more materials require wet cleaning to remove residues.  The number of areas requiring repainting and items requiring replacement increase.  Floors may need to be refinished.  Heat damage to drywall, cabinets, and contents requires more materials to be replaced.  Contents might be cleaned at the jobsite.  Smoke odors are noticeable, possibly requiring additional deodorization procedures after cleaning.
  • Major-Structural framing and finishes may be charred, requiring structural repairs.  Smoke residues are distributed through a large portion of the building, and strong smoke odors.  Emergency services are needed, such as Board-up, establishing a source of electricity, winterizing the building in cold weather and removing smoke-filled and charred debris.  Restoration will involve extensive cleaning of the structure and probably require restorers to pack and move out all salvageable contents for off-site cleaning.  Multiple methods of deodorization are needed to remove smoke odors.

The problem with water is that it gets everywhere. If you have ever dropped a glass of water or had a faucet overflow, you know that everything around it is saturated within moments.

When you are dealing with water damage in your Southampton home, it is essential to be aware of potential damage inside walls. Depending on the nature of the water damage incident, the inside of walls can become damp.

SERVPRO has several ways to help with moisture inside walls:

 We use monitoring equipment such as moisture   meters, probes, and infrared imaging to       examine walls and track moisture.

We can oversee the removal and replacement     of drywall and insulation.

We can use structural cavity drying equipment to direct airflow inside cavities and increase the rate of evaporation.

Structural cavity drying equipment is also helpful for drying under or behind cabinets.

When we are finished drying out the area, we deodorize with foggers, pellets, or generators, to leave you home smelling good.

Drying inside walls is vital for preventing structural damage and mold growth. Do not delay; call SERVPRO of East End and Hamptons at 631-653-9595.

Here are some flood safety tips from the American Red Cross:

4/18/2022 (Permalink)

The American Red Cross provides you with these flood safety tips:

According to the American Red Cross (ARC), floods cause more damage in the U.S. every year than any other weather-related catastrophe. 

  • Stay clear of floodwaters. If you come across a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, STOP. Turn around and go a different way. Just six inches of fast-moving water can sweep you off your feet. 
  • If you approach a flooded road while driving, turn around and go a different way.
  • If you're caught on a flooded road and waters are rising rapidly around you, get out of the vehicle quickly and move to higher ground. Most vehicles can be swept away by less than two feet of flowing water.
  • Keep children out of floodwaters. Children are curious and often lack judgment about fast moving floodwater or contaminated floodwater.
  • Keep your pets' safety in mind as well by keeping them out of the way of flood water, too. 

If your property is flooding, call SERVPRO of the East End at (631) 653-9595 for immediate flood damage mitigation.
