Apartment Water Clean Up SERVPRO EBR shows up in a Fleet!

Recently a very prominent apartment complex had a very large and potentially costly accident. There was a small fire in one unit on the 4th floor and subsequently the fire extinguishers in the entire building turned on and flooded a good percentage of the building with residents still in their units. SERVPRO received the call and quickly took action to get to the scene loaded up and ready to help. 

In only 30 minutes we have multiple box trucks, trailers and numerous technicians onsite extracting water and placing drying equipment throughout the apartment complex so as to minimize any demolition needed for the owners and save as much time and money as possible for all of the parties involved. SERVPRO's qick and decisive action in this situation saved the aprtment complex thousands of dollars in possible repair cost as well as salvaged numerous pieces of furniture and personal effects for many of the residents of the apartments. 

Water restoration can be a very difficult and expensive project but this can be absolutely minimized if a qualified team of professionals can get to the jobsite quickly and begin working immediately. Water damage is a little bit like compound interest but in a bad way. The longer the water sits the more extensive the damage and the damage just compounds over time.

Saint Game with Servpro of EBR The SERVPRO of EBR team relaxing at a Saints Game.

Last year in 2021 the state of Louisiana was hit very hard by Hurricane Ida and many other storms and the team at SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge was pushed to the absolute max. Some of team members were on the road for storm work away from their family for up to 8 weeks. During that time those individuals were working 7 days per week and up 16 hours per day to restore a number of very devastated properties throughout the New Orleans, Houma and Thibodeaux region. Our company saw record numbers of people affected by these water losses and we as team came together to give our everything to help restore all of our clients families and homes back to their pre-storm condition. 

Louisiana as a whole took a major hit. SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge was called upon by the State of Louisiana to mitigate and restore many different state run properties that were significantly affected during the Hurricane season. Our team was trusted to get the job done in some very dire circumstances and SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge not only pulled through with shining colors. Our teams mitigated huge losses like all 8 campuses of Delgado Community College, NOCCA (New Orleans Center for Creative Arts), Chabert Hospital, LUMCON (Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium) and many more as well. Our teams completed the jobs with rave reviews and we saved hundreds of thousands of dollars for these properties and the state of Louisiana. 

After the dust settled and we all had a chance to catch our breath the Burychka's took everyone to a much needed New Orleans Saints game to rest, relax and fellowship with one another. These moments are what create such a special team of people who are willing to go head long into the storm and find a way to help people. We are SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge and we are a TEAM!

Our teams removed some water damaged walls and other various building materials and cleaned all of the remaining studs and spaces until the reconstruction came onsite and got everything looking and smelling as good as new.

Vacationing Soon?

4/1/2021 (Permalink)

Going on vacation is always exciting! As the weather starts to warm up and Louisiana COVID restrictions loosen, more residents will be looking to get away.

Here is a simple check list to protect your business or home from disaster while you are away:

  • Suspend mail and newspaper services
  • Arrange for lawn care services while you're gone
  • Install Exterior lighting or motion detectors to deter burglars.
  • Wait to post vacation pictures on social media until you have returned
  • Check the batteries in home or business security devices, including motion detectors, cameras, and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Replace them if necessary.
  • Shut off the main water supply. If you would like to leave the water on for an automated sprinkler system, then at least turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, washing machine, and to each toilet. 
  • Switch your water heater to vacation mode or turn it off completely.
  • Set your thermostat to either four degrees above or below your normal temperature. For summer months, set the thermostat in the upper 70's. For winter months, set the thermostat in the upper 50's.

SERVPRO Rapid Response Guarantee

3/30/2021 (Permalink)

When any business suffers a structural disaster, the speed with which a team of fix-it professionals can begin making repairs is critical. An ability to handle the problem with haste is important to reducing damage. Therefore, having a 24 hour, round-the-clock restoration team available is a huge advantage. Here are some things worth knowing about SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge's rapid response abilities.

Elements of SERVPRO’s Speediness

Because they are designed with timeliness in mind, you should expect:

  • Emergency calls to receive a response within an hour
  • Fast site arrivals, a benefit of their more than 1,700 North American locations
  • Inspections completed within 4 hours
  • Briefings delivered within 8 hours

Whether the problem stems from water, fire, mold or COVID-19, SERVPRO’s fast response makes them a preferred vendor for most insurance agencies. Being always open means repairs can begin even in the middle of the night. That’s the power of SERVPRO’s 24-hour service.

Importance of SERVPRO’s Speediness
Imagine an office in East Baton Rouge experiences a broken pipe or natural flooding. The longer it takes to clean up, the greater the level of destruction. Within minutes, water can seep into drywall, carpeting, and filing cabinets. Additionally, computers and other electronic equipment are likely to be ruined.
Within a day, additional issues may surface. Metal can begin to tarnish. Cubicle walls may become compromised and need to be thrown away. A distracting, unpleasant smell could start to develop.
Between two days and a week after the incident, mold may start growing. Wood floors might begin warping. Contaminated water will have probably spread, posing a health risk to employees. The cost of building rehabilitation will have grown exponentially.
Water Damage is just one scenario where the passage of time compounds problems. The same level of increased trouble occurs when delaying action under other scenarios.
Having a 24-hour team available to react to the most common types of office disasters is a true advantage. When calamity strikes at any hour, contact SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge for prompt service.

SERVPRO: One Team

When the south-central region of the United States endured below-freezing temperatures for multiple consecutive days last month, thousands of Business Owners and Homeowners turned to one brand to help restore their homes and businesses that were affected by burst pipes and water damage: SERVPRO.

As the temperatures dropped, the number of customers affected by flooding caused burst pipes to quickly increase. By the end of the week, tens of thousands of home and business owners were calling SERVPRO to mitigate the damage. 

There’s a reason why during the most historic cold snap in 70 years, residents of the south-central and southwestern part of the United States called SERVPRO. In fact, there are about 1700. These 1700 reasons show up in the form of franchises and crews that have left their home states, some for extended periods of time, to travel with their equipment and assist local franchises in the restoration of these homes and businesses that suffered water damage. 

The amazing thing about choosing SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge is that our customers don’t just get access to one restoration company, but they partner with a trusted name in the restoration industry that has access to a network of franchises that are willing to come and assist in historic events such as the one we as a region experienced in February of 2021.

So no matter if it’s hurricanes or freezes, SERVPRO is always ready to unite forces to help a region restore its communities, living true to the tagline: One Team.

Leaky Roofs Cause Moldy Ceilings

3/26/2021 (Permalink)

Over time, a leaking roof can cause secondary damage such as mold to your home or ceiling. Mold on Ceiling from a Leaking Roof.

When your property in East Baton Rouge suffers roof damage, you probably do not think about other problems that might spring up as a result. However, if the leak goes unchecked, you could find yourself looking at a dark spot on the ceiling and wondering if it is black mold.

Signs of a Leaky Roof

A roof leak can go unnoticed for some time, but there are signs that will tell you that you need to do a quick inspection for water damage:

  • A musty attic
  • Dark spots on ceilings and walls
  • Decaying wood in the attic
  • Damaged or missing shingles
  • A ceiling leak or skylight leak

If you notice any of these signs, you should have a commercial restoration and mold remediation expert inspect your property. It takes time for water to get through your roof, layers of insulation and into your ceiling, so the problem could be larger than you think.

How Leaks Help Mold Grow
Stachybotrys chartarum, or black mold, is the most well-known, but many kinds of fungus can settle into your building because of a roof leak. No matter the type, all mold needs three things: moisture, food, and a warm environment. A leaky roof can provide all three of these essentials by letting moisture into attic spaces that contain porous materials such as wood, insulation and drywall that, once wet, lack the proper ventilation to dry out.

Fixing the Problem
If you find that you have a leaky roof, the first step to preventing any further issues is to fix it. Because the damage could be more extensive than it seems, hiring professionals to handle repairs and any resulting mold issues is the safest way to go.
Dealing with any kind of mold, not just black mold, is a business owner’s nightmare, but with early detection and the right help, your building will be back to working condition in no time.

Is Your Business Prepared for a Fire Emergency?

3/26/2021 (Permalink)

Having a plan in place for your business in case of fire can protect your employees and response time for first responders. Fire can happen at any moment, is your Business Prepared?

A fire is one of the most unpredictable forces in nature. Knowing how to escape one if it should break out at your East Baton Rouge business can be key for reducing injuries to your employees and customers. Even if you have fire safety measures in place, such as ceiling sprinklers and fire extinguisher stations, a contingency plan can be as equally important when a blaze gets too big for you to handle alone. Asking yourself a few questions about your building’s layout and workforce can help you create an effective and viable escape plan.

Where Is Your Company Located?

The location of your business within a building can affect your evacuation plan, so this is a factor you will probably want to consider. Take a quick tour of your office space and note the specifics that might affect your planned route:

  • The number of exits
  • The floor your company occupies
  • The condition of accessible stairwells

If you rent a building, ask your landlord to assist with creating the plan and whether you can modify any exits to make them safer during an evacuation. SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge can also assist in putting a plan in place for your business for FREE. 

Does the Plan Include Handicapped Routes?

Handicapped employees and customers can have difficulty reaching safety during an evacuation, so it is important to include special considerations for them in your contingency plan. Assign handicapped workers an evacuation partner to assist them in case of an emergency and create at least one route that is wheelchair accessible.

Are All Shifts Aware of the Plan?

If you have more than one shift working at your business, it is important that each understands the details of the evacuation strategy. Call in a fire damage and cleanup service to help you organize a company-wide information meeting on safety so you can perform drills and ensure all of your employees are prepared in case of fire.

Fires can break out without warning, even if your East Baton Rouge business is normally at low risk for such an event. Having an effective contingency plan in place helps to protect your employees and customers while offering you peace of mind as a business owner.

As a major Winter Storm Warning went into effect early Valentine’s Day weekend, North Louisiana settled in for what was expected to be a long and cold week of record-breaking temperatures. With almost 2 million residents losing power and multiple businesses closed due to dangerous road conditions, the White House had officially declared a state of emergency over Louisiana. Rolling blackouts and empty grocery stores cast an eerie, almost apocalyptic spell over the usually warm and sunny climate the state is known for. Amidst unprecedented times, Winter Storm Uri was as singular in its effects as it was harsh in its weather. Our crews from SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge responded to the Storm call to help home and property managers regarding water damages caused by burst pipes. Our trained technicians have slushed through several inches of water to find collapsed ceilings, ruined furniture, and buckled flooring that has forced residents into the homes of friends and neighbors.

This is what sets SERVPRO apart — when you call us, you get access to over 1700 franchisees who are ready to respond to disasters at this scale. Winter Storm Uri was unprecedented and unlike anything we could have expected, it has also revealed the depth of commitment and strength that flows through the SERVPRO system.

Restore vs. Replace

4/1/2020 (Permalink)

The restore vs. replace mentality is one of the greatest assets SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge has. When it comes to making it "Like it never even happened." it’s impossible to overstate the importance of keeping as many of the original items as possible.

More importantly restoring is the preferred option because whether we realize it or not, the things in our homes, even the most arbitrary, have some kind of sentimental value.

Every item of yours is important and SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge will treat it as such.
