  • Keep basic tools in the office in the event of an emergency.
  • Create and maintain a list of emergency contact phone numbers for all employees.
  • Maintain contact information for your local fire and police numbers for medical emergencies.

Thermal Camera Just know when you call SERVPRO, you are getting the best technology used in the industry.

When it comes to the latest tools of the trade, SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno spares no expense equipping our team. 

One of the best tools in our toolbox is the thermal imaging camera. Thermal imaging technology uses infrared radiation to measure heat differences. This creates a color picture of the area being evaluated. 

The biggest value of using thermal imaging comes to us during a water loss situation. With a thermal imaging camera, we can literally look behind walls, ceilings, and floors to determine if the possibility of water is present. 

When used in conjunction with a moisture meter, we can narrow down the cause of your problem. In the past, we would have needed to do exploratory demolition which is costly.

On a recent loss in a commercial building where the loss started on an upper floor, we were able to assess the wet areas quickly and accurately. The pictures illustrate the wet areas in dark colors and allow us to focus specifically on those areas.

Just know when you call SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno, you are getting the best technology used in the industry. This equipment is in the hands of our talented and dedicated teammates and will help us make your situation “Like it never even happened.”

Was Your Business Smoke-Damaged?

Fire logo We respond to commercial fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day

Commercial businesses rely on us to remove smoke odor.

SERVPRO® of Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno invests heavily in specialized equipment to efficiently restore smoke damage in properties like yours. Depending on the type of fuel burned and the severity of the smoke damage, we may use one or a combination of the following types of equipment:

Air Scrubber or Filter

Heating, ventilation, air conditioning system (HVAC) air scrubber or a high-efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA) air purifier is useful for capturing larger smoke molecules. There will still be some residual odor from smaller molecules or surface residues.

Ozone Generator

This is a fast and highly effective smoke odor restoration method. These machines emit ozone, which follows the same paths through the air as smoke and oxidizes any residual traces in the air or on surfaces.

Thermal Fogging

Thermal fogging is an intensive treatment involving fogging machines. After people evacuate, smoke cleaning professionals fill a structure with petroleum distillates that neutralize odors and ventilate the area.

Hydroxyl Generator

A hydroxyl generator relies on ultraviolet light to generate hydroxyl radicals that eliminate smoke odors.

Vapor Modification

Vapor modification is another odor elimination method that relies on aromatic compounds and a blower or fan to neutralize smoke odor.

Commercial Building Fire Safety Tips

3/9/2021 (Permalink)

Extinguisher Fire-safety tips focused on keeping the workplace safe.

Here are a few fire-safety tips focused on keeping the workplace safe.

  1. Keep your workplace clean and organized. Mess contributes to fires by providing more fuel to the flames and by limiting access to exits and emergency equipment.
  2. Place all oily/chemical covered rags in a seal-able metal container. Dispose of this waste on a regular basis.
  3. Keep machinery on an appropriate maintenance schedule and keep to it, to prevent overheating and sparks.
  4. Report all electrical hazards immediately faulty wiring is a common cause of fires along with and malfunctioning electrical equipment. Never attempt electrical repairs unless you are qualified and authorized.
  5. Have easy access to all electrical control panels. Clutter and equipment stored in front of the panels slow down your ability to shut down the power in emergencies.
  6. Use and store chemicals safely. Read the label and the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) to determine if the substances are flammable or hazardous in any way. Provide proper ventilation when using and storing these substances.
  7. Smoke only in designated areas and extinguish smoking materials safely and thoroughly. Never smoke in storerooms or chemical storage areas. Never exposes areas containing chemicals to open flames of any variety.
  8. Never block sprinklers, firefighting equipment, or emergency exits.
  9. Have an emergency information list near telephones. The list should include emergency numbers, company address, and fire evacuation plans.
  10. Learn the location of all fire extinguishers and how to properly use them.

Dry Out Your Property & Contents

1/25/2021 (Permalink)

commercial water damage For help with wet books, call SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno at (281) 412-6211 today.

Naturally, you do not want your business’ or institutions’ books to get wet, and in the event of water damage, it is natural to panic.

 
However, professional water removal can help preserve and save books. Even books that are entirely soaked might be salvageable using a robust process known as freeze drying. First, documents are freeze dried to preserve their current state. Then, we place them in a specialist freeze-drying chamber, and all air is suctioned out. A combination of pressure and temperature are used to evaporate water and collect it outside the chamber.
 
SERVPRO understands that the sight of wet books and papers is upsetting, and it is natural to want to take action as soon as possible. However, we recommend caution and offer the following guidelines.
 
Stop water flow if it is safe to do so, to prevent further harm to delicate books.
 
We suggest taking unaffected papers to another, drier, location if you can, to prevent them from being affected.
 
It is essential that the affected area is kept dry and cold. We recommend using a dehumidifier, if possible, to reduce humidity. You can use a fan for moving the air and aiding the drying process. Do not panic if you do not have access to the correct equipment - our IICRC-certified technicians arrive equipped with dehumidifiers and fans ready to do the job.
 
Be very careful with water-logged books. Do not open the volumes, remove their bindings, or fan the pages. Handle each item as little as possible until our staff arrives.
 
If water is still dripping from a leak or broken pipe or roof, spread plastic sheeting over collections to protect them from drips.
 
Swift action is vitally important. The sooner books are frozen, the higher the chance of salvaging them successfully. That is why we recommend putting in a call to SERVPRO as soon as you can. Our IICRC-certified technicians are ready to remove water from the floor, reduce humidity, encourage evaporation and most importantly, carefully take your books for freeze-drying.
 
For help with wet books, call SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno at (281) 412-6211 today.

Sewage Damage? 4 Steps To Take

1/12/2021 (Permalink)

Sewer cleanup Sewage damage is never pretty, but it doesn't have to be debilitating. Call us to cleanup!

Four Things To Do If You Find Sewage Damage In Your Business

Discovering sewage damage in your business can be both harrowing and disgusting. However, you'll need to be on your toes for the sewer cleanup. If it's more than a simple floor leak, specific measures need to be taken. While a restoration company can do the cleaning, there are a few procedures you may carry out. Here are four things to do if you find sewage damage in your business.

1. Unplug and Turn Off Nearby Electronics
First and foremost, it's essential to get rid of any safety hazards around the sewer backup. Make sure anything that runs on electricity is turned off and/or unplugged. Here are some items to look out for in a business setting:

  • Computers
  • Chargers
  • Televisions
  • Video Equipment

Don't try to use anything electronic that was in the area. If the water touches one of these items, the surrounding area could become dangerous.

2. Open Windows
Mold is a serious concern after sewage damage occurs. Therefore, airing out your space is an essential task if you want to deter it. The fresh air also helps to get rid of any putrid smells from, for instance, a flooded toilet.

3. Remove Endangered Items
Anything that's been contaminated by the sewage should be left to the professionals, but it's prudent to remove non-contaminated items from the area. If the water keeps leaking, it's liable to reach more of your property. Keep in mind that contaminated items might be restorable.

4. Inspect the Damage
The entire sewer cleanup process will go faster if you know what needs to be done. Without coming in contact with the sewage, try to see what damage has been caused. Make sure that restoration experts know your findings. If you can tell that something can't be restored and must be replaced, you'll be able to start that process immediately.


Sewage damage is never pretty, but it doesn't have to be debilitating. Stay attentive and know what steps to take. Once the sewer cleanup is over, you can know you did your best for the business.

Team SERVPRO Arrives Quickly to Dry Out Commercial Property

12/31/2020 (Permalink)

commercial water damage SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno is here to help reopen the doors to customers.

Houston flooding can shut a business down for a day, a week, or longer. The water, particularly if it is contaminated, must be removed quickly by a professional service. It reduces the amount of damage, reopens the business, and is preferred by the insurance companies.

 
When there is a shutdown after commercial water damage, businesses need to reopen to support their customers, employees, and owners.  We begin with a quick inspection to determine the type of water, tools we need, and how many technicians required for the job. Most water damage in municipal or government offices comes from a burst pipe that brought water into the building. The water is clean, meaning it contains no contaminants and requires no special actions or protective gear.
 
If the damage includes a clogged toilet or a broken, outgoing sewer line, then the water contains some contaminants. This water is gray or black, depending on the amount present. Our work crews wear protective boots at the minimum and in extreme cases, a full protective suit. Before we start to pump out gray or black water, SERVPRO technicians spray an anti-microbial chemical agent on the water surface. Once we remove the water, we spray the chemical agent on all surfaces the water covered.
 
In these buildings, there are few carpets except in some private offices or waiting areas. If the water was contaminated, we remove them as soon as we can and spray the area underneath with an anti-microbial agent. If the water was clean, technicians use extraction wands to draw out nearly all of it and then move on to drying the facility.
 
With the threat of contamination removed along with the water, we dry the facility. For any traces of water, we use long-handled squeegees to push it off the floor and outside the building. Finally, we set up fans to draw the damp air outside. To replace it, we install air movers at key points to force warm, dry air across floors and walls. Technicians direct and control the level of this air flow to prevent additional damage while drying everything.
 
Regardless if it is a government services building or your private business, SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno is here to help reopen the doors to customers. For more information on what our restoration teams can do for you, call us today at (281) 412-6211.

Commercial Mold Remediation

12/30/2020 (Permalink)

Mold logo Commercial facilities have their own concerns compared to a home, but SERVPRO is ready to help!

Getting the water out of a structure is often the easy part of clean-up after a flood or plumbing failure. Depending on the building and its construction materials, trying to dry it out and deal with any mold problems can be more time consuming and expensive.


SERVPRO has extensive experience in the Houston and surrounding areas dealing with commercial mold damage. Many of the commercial buildings we clean are constructed from cinder blocks which have their own special requirements.

The open cells in cinder blocks can retain a significant amount of water or moisture if the affected walls have equalized with the surrounding environment. This means that the humidity and temperature have become roughly the same inside and out. When that occurs, there is little to no transfer of moisture from the wall to the outside. This is when our technicians may have to drill a series of holes near the bottom of the wall to assist in removing standing water and increase moisture transfer. This is done through the mortar between the blocks which can be easily repaired and patched. If the affected wall has either a gloss or semi-gloss paint on the outside, then this will have to be done as the paint acts as a vapor barrier which reduces transfer even further.

All of this has to be completed before mold can be cleaned and removed. While it may seem that we have to do is leave the wall alone, you have to remember that a mold growth smaller than a pinhead contains hundreds of spores. These spores can escape or grow through even the smallest crack to infect areas of a building that may have even been water free originally. Once the water and moisture have been dried, our technicians will use anti-fungal foggers to destroy the spores in the wall. Then, they will set up exhaust fans and specialized vacuums with HEPA filters to remove everything possible.

Commercial facilities have their own concerns compared to a home, but SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno is ready to support all of our neighbors and fellow business owners. If you notice excessive moisture or have that "musty odor" which indicates the presence of mold, call us today at (281) 412-6211.

3 Reasons Mold Grows

3 Reasons Mold Grows

According to many mold remediation professionals, there are a few reasons mold growth could occur at your Pearland, TX, business. However, understanding the sources of these problems could help you take preventative steps. Here’s what you may want to know.

1. Moisture Problems

In many cases, water damage can become a contributing factor to spore growth. This is because mold needs areas of high humidity to grow and a persistent source of water such as flooding or a leak provides this. In addition to creating a humid environment, water can also lead to a breakdown of organic materials in the area which is another contributing factor to spore growth. If you have water damage on your company property it’s best to fix the issue as quickly as possible.

2. Dim Conditions

In many cases, mold growth is found in dark areas or those with dim lighting. This is partially because these areas are usual cooler than spaces in the sunlight, but also because for some varieties the darker conditions creates a higher relative humidity which may allow the reproductive mechanisms of the mold spores to work faster. This is one reason why mold is found in basements, attics, and in spaces behind walls.

3. Organic Fuel Sources

As a fungi mold absorbs nutrients from organic materials around it. This can be structural material such as wood or drywall, or more decorative like wallpaper or carpeting. With a source like this is available in a dim or dark area of high humidity it creates a prime habitat for spore growth.
In most cases, mold growth requires a few conditions in order to thrive. These include moisture which can create humidity, dim light which often helps keep the area cooler, and an organic fuel source. Understanding this growth process can help you take preventative steps. If you do find problems a restoration professional can help.

The Different Causes of Commercial Water Damage

Work Place Water Damage is Restored by SERVPRO

When business owners visualize water damage, they often picture a massive storm wiping out power lines, flooding offices, and shutting down businesses for days at a time. It is true that commercial water damage is often the result of floods and water that stems from weather events and storms.
 
However, many entrepreneurs and business space renters forget that storms and severe weather aren't the only causes of floods and water damage. Here are some of the typical causes of water damage to commercial buildings.
 
1. Malfunctioning sprinkler systems
Some older office and retail buildings still have outdated sprinkler systems that work in conjunction with fire protection systems. While such sprinklers can come in handy during a fire emergency, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty or in need of replacement. This could easily damage inventory and business assets.

2. Damaged appliances and equipment
This cause of commercial flood damage is more common in restaurants and catering facilities, as well as any business that has appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance fails and sends water across your building, especially during late hours when no one is around, you may come back to work and face a water emergency.
 
3. Broken pipes and plumbing
Just like in a residence, if the plumbing system in your workplace fails water damage could be the result. 
 
4. Backed up sewer lines
This is another cause of commercial water damage that often catches business owners by surprise. Should the sewer line to your building back up or become damaged, realize the potential dangers of contaminated Black Water which can cause health effects and ruin products and office furnishings. 
 
If your business has suffered commercial water damage, SERVPRO of  Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno will get you back up and running again. Call us anytime 24/7 at (281) 412-6211 for fast help.

High Quality Service for High Rise Building

6/30/2019 (Permalink)

The professionals at SERVPRO® of  Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno are no strangers to working among the clouds. We have serviced many of the high rise buildings in Downtown Houston and the Galleria area. What a lot of people don’t realize is that when a water damage occurs, the water does not stop when it hits the wall. The water will continue to travel down the wall, affecting lower levels the longer the water sits. The damage will even continue to affect lower levels as it is being cleaned, which means the building must be repaired from top to bottom as bottom to top will not resolve any damages. 

For a skyscraper with a busted pipe on the highest floor, that could be as many as 40 floors to dry, clean, and repair! That is definitely a job above your regular janitors pay grade. 

Our most recent high rise was a 22-story building that became saturated by a busted pipe near the roof. Luckily for them SERVPRO® of  Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno took on the task! After 2 days of cleaning and 3 days of drying, making a total of 5 days on the job - it was completed and restored to “Like it never happened”!

Do you have a multi-story building affected by water damage that you would like to leave in the hands of trained professionals?

Air Ducts, When Was Your Cleaned?

2/8/2019 (Permalink)

In some cases of extreme buildup, it can increase efficiency as much as 40 percent!

According to the EPA:

You should consider having the air ducts in your home cleaned if-

  • There is substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts or on other components of your heating and cooling system.
  • There is an odd smell coming from the Duct system.
  • Ducts are infested with vermin, e.g. (rodents or insects)
  • Ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.

Some research also suggests that cleaning dirty cooling coils, fans and heat exchangers can improve the efficiency of heating and cooling systems.

Is cleaning my air ducts really that important?

During normal operation, dust can accumulate in ductwork that can lead to microbial growth. Duct cleaning has been shown to reduce this growth, as well as increase the efficiency of your system. In fact, in some cases of extreme buildup, it can increase efficiency as much as 40 percent!

SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland professionals routinely inspects the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC).  Keeping them clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can, in turn, save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe.

Time Is Money

Did You Know: After a Hurricane an average of every one out of three family owned businesses will not recover.

We work with your schedule

Here at SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland we understand how embarrassing it can be to have a damage repaired or cleaned. Especially for restaurants who need to maintain a certain level of cleanliness for their customers. Seeing a SERVPRO van in the front of the building may turn people away. 

Our solution is to make ourselves available 24/7 and preform with the utmost discretion. Our teams have been known to come in at night, after hours or work from the back of the store out of sight. This allows your business to continue to run as usual.

Getting back to normal as soon as possible

Occasionally there does come the disaster preventing a place of business to function entirely. Here along the Texas cost, that usually involves a Hurricane. For every day work is delayed is another day of lost revenue. Time is Money. If your entire business is shut down SERVPRO of Friendwood/Pearland will work around the clock to get you up and running again in the event of any disaster. After Hurricane Harvey, we had some businesses open within 3 days! 

The Famous Buc-ee's Restrooms

2/19/2018 (Permalink)

Buc-ee's gas stations can have more than 70 restroom stalls!

A household name across Texas, Buc-ee's is revered by Houstonian's as the best rest stop in all of America. What sets it apart from the others? Apart from its massive size, halls of candy and plethora of beef jerky, when people think of Buc-ee's they think of its world famous restrooms. 

How do they stay so clean? There is a staff fully dedicated to inspecting the bathrooms every hour on the hour 24/7. Buc-ee's has also risen the standards of 'clean' to much more than just a wipe down and a quick mop up. Toilets alone are cleaned every hour with more care than most people give their own johns. While this makes for a much less desired job, Buc-ee's had no problem compensating their employees with above minimum wage pay. 

For more information on Buc-ee's and their pristine toilets see the below links.

Spring Cleaning Is Here!

2/2/2018 (Permalink)

A new season is here in Texas and it offers an opportunity to refresh your work-place. Winter months normally mean windows stay shut, and dirt and grime from boots and heavy shoes gets tracked onto the floor. Spring cleaning isn't just for your home, you should do the same for your business. SERVPRO of  Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno offers plenty of services that can help your work and even your home start the season fresh!

Clean Your Air Ducts and HVAC

Your air ducts and HVAC unit work hard throughout the winter to keep your customers and employees warm. The ventilation system should be properly cleaned in the spring to make sure the air quality in your restaurant is not poor. If it has not been serviced for some time, your air could be circulating dust, pollen, odors and dirt and debris. Our technicians and equipment can clean out your system and make sure everyone breathes easier in the new season.

Kitchen Cleaning

Checking the hoods in the kitchen is usually a twice a year job, so what better time to start than for spring cleaning. Cleaning the pilots lights (if it is gas) is also a good idea. Just make sure to follow manufacturer’s instructions. Empty and sanitize the ice machine, and wipe down walls, ceilings and dry storage areas. SERVPRO of  Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno offers great commercial cleaning options as well, so give us a call if there are items you want the professionals to fix.

Rugs and Carpets

If your business uses rugs or carpet, springtime is a great time to freshen them as well. If the furniture in your work-place does not often move, tracks from normal foot traffic can start to wear down your rugs or carpets. When they become matted, these items also hold in an abundance of dust and debris that is carried in on shoes. A proper cleaning will get rid of the smells and the dust!

SERVPRO of  Friendswood/Pearland, Stafford, Missouri City North and Fresno is only a phone call away if you need a professional to help freshen up for spring.
