SERVPRO Commercial Water Removal- Dehumidifiers

Commercial Water Removal - SERVPRO Dehumidifiers

Despite a push to digital, some record keeping must still be done on paper. These documents record valuable city and county information needed for tracing the history of a title, property boundaries, and other legal requirements.

Commercial water removal doesn't stop at pumps and vacuums. Once the standing water has been removed, it is just as important to remove any excess moisture from your property and the air around it. To do this, SERVPRO uses a series of dehumidifiers. This is a very safe way to pull moisture from plat books and other records kept by county offices and construction companies as well as the offices they are kept in.

The most common type we use is a refrigerant dehumidifier. It extracts moisture from the air by condensation. It operates by air flow forced through refrigerated coils. The condensed water is collected in a tray where it is either drained or pumped out of the machine.

Our SERVPRO technicians use this on job sites where the temperature is usually over 50 degrees Fahrenheit and the available power is limited due to local electrical service being down. It is especially effective on surfaces that are moderate to highly porous and permeable to air and water; carpet, carpet padding and drywall for example.

Another machine we use when the temperature is lower is the desiccant dehumidifier. Moisture is removed by air flow which passes over silica gel. This substance attracts and captures air vapor very effectively. The condensed water is disposed of by heating it and venting it outside of the business structure.

This method is preferred for jobs where the temperature is below 50 degrees Fahrenheit and the power supply is unlimited. It is particularly useful for dense materials which have low permeability and porosity, hardwood floors, and wall framing for example.

If the structure has a large amount of porous and dense materials each, both types of dehumidifiers may be used. Both methods are good for drying out title records and other paper documents without damaging them.

Commercial Cleaning Services

10/28/2020 (Permalink)

When commercial building owners think of SERVPRO fire, water, and mold are the first things to come to mind. While these things are our specialty, there is also a long list of other services we provide to our commercial clients. This blog will provide a spotlight on some of the lesser known services that we perform on commercial buildings.

-Carpet Cleanings

It’s important for commercial facilities to have a professional appearance inside and out. One effective way to keep the inside looking and smelling nice is to have the carpets cleaned regularly. One main benefit from this service is that it extends the life of the carpet.

-Air Duct Cleaning

Keeping the air ducts clean is important for many reasons. The most important one is that it will save you money in the long run. If your ducts are dirty and congested it makes the unit work harder and uses more energy. This will cause your HVAC unit lifespan to decrease dramatically. Clean air ducts not only keep the facility smelling better, but it also increases the life of your unit.

-Bio Hazard Cleanup

Although this doesn’t happen everyday its good to know a company that can help you with this type of cleanup. If an employee cuts his hand on a machine, we can clean up the mess that is left behind. This type of cleaning isn’t done by regular janitorial companies. There are extra safety measures that must be in place to clean up biohazard.

-Coronavirus Cleanings

We offer two different types of corona cleanup. Preventative cleanings as well as confirmed cases. We can sanitize and disinfect large commercial facilities. By doing so your company can safely return to work if an employee tests positive.

These are just a few of our lesser known services. If anything ever goes wrong at your commercial facility please reach out and we will be happy to assist your needs! Call SERVPRO of Boyd, Carter, Greenup & Lewis Counties at (606)-836-8000.

The Benefits of Cleaning Your HVAC/Ducts

6/3/2020 (Permalink)

Your HVAC unit has to do with cooling and heating your home. Maintenance for your HVAC system is essential if you want your unit to run correctly for a substantial amount of time. Cleaning your HVAC system also entails duct maintenance as well.

Cleaning the ducts and vents means that they will be cleaning separate elements in the HVAC unit. It is important to clean multiple areas in the unit because it is unknown what lurks in your ducts. So, when turning on the air conditioning unit, those who have allergies may react from the dust, dander, or mold in the unit.

There are many advantages of cleaning your ducts/ HVAC unit. One benefit is having a more efficient system which will result in lower utility bills. Another benefit is having a healthier living environment. Keeping up with the system will also keep up the longevity of the unit, just like a “tune up” with a vehicle would improve its life span.

If interested in the benefits of keeping up with your HVAC unit, contact your SERVPRO of Huntington today.

Why Should You Choose SERVPRO?

12/11/2019 (Permalink)

Your commercial property in Huntington, is more than just a structure. It shelters employees and customers within it, along with all the necessities to keep your business thriving. When faced with a broken pipe or flooding, you need to be back up and running as quickly as possible. Instead of dealing with water clean-up alone, a certified professional has the expertise and know-how to make that happen.

IICRC Certification

When searching for a restoration company, it’s important to ensure the one you choose is certified through The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC). This nonprofit organization certifies professionals based on rigid standards. In order to be certified, a company must be insured, have the required tools for the jobs and technicians who have proven their expertise through a rigorous exam.

Benefits a Water Expert Provides

When it comes to water clean-up, it’s likely that you are not an expert in the field. Three main reasons to put your trust in a certified expert include:

Knowledge — Cleaning up water is more than just grabbing a towel. These experts have the tools and techniques to clean and dry your property to ensure mold doesn’t grow and further damage doesn’t happen. They can provide the answers you need and help you understand the process.


Ability — If your business has had extensive flooding and water damage, it’s no small feat to get it back into shape. Along with getting everything dried out, damaged areas will likely need to be replaced including drywall and carpeting. A trained professional handles the entire job for you.


Ethics — Certification goes beyond proving a company can do a job. The IICRC also has high standards for ethics, including a code of ethics that must be followed to maintain certification.

As a professional in your field, you want your customers to see you as a leader in your industry. When it comes to, water clean up you deserve the same high-quality service that you deliver. A certified water expert provides that peace of mind.

When Fire Engulfs Your Business

8/12/2019 (Permalink)

When a fire strikes your commercial property, it's quite likely that you feel yourself start to panic. This immediate reaction makes sense given all of the economic turmoil and property destruction that a fire can cause. However, knowing which steps to take in the face of a Treasure Valley commercial fire can help prevent you from becoming anxious, losing money, and undergoing extensive property damages. To handle a treasure valley commercial fire successfully and speedily, implement the following four tips:


1. Contact A Fire Remediation Expert. 
Once the fire department has doused all of the flames, be sure to call a fire remediation expert. This individual will be able to equip you with a thorough assessment indicating the extent of the damages. Don't ever attempt to handle any of the cleanups, drying, or restoration processes on your own. Doing so could put you in peril of injury and illness.


2. Assemble Your Records. 
In addition to contacting a fire remediation expert, make sure that you assemble your business's essential records. You'll want to have this information with you when you start working with your insurance company. To guarantee that you can have all of your files ready in a safe place, make a point to buy a fireproof safe where they can be stored.


3. Call The Insurance Company Immediately. 
Be sure that you call your insurance company once the fire is put out. This step is important because your insurance agent will work with you to file a claim and determine how much coverage you'll attain for the commercial damages.


4. Get Permission To Reenter The Building. 
Always ask the fire department or another local authority whether you can reenter your building. In some cases, Treasure valley fires can weaken the structural integrity of the commercial property and make it subject to collapse. This is why you need to assure that reentry is safe for you and your employees.
