6/18/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial Building in Langley, BC

Whether you own your commercial building or are leasing it from another entity, it is always a good idea to have a safety plan in place in the possibility that disaster should strike.

SERVPRO offers a free Emergency Readiness Plan which will help you to determine the safest and quickest way to handle an unforeseen emergency

Call SERVPRO of Langley today to set up a time to meet with one of our qualified personnel to go over the needs of your particular structure.

However, there are some things that you can do yourself to reduce that chances that disaster may strike

Before closing for the day, assign someone to check for the following:

Inspect bathrooms for any running water in sinks or toilets

In cooler weather familiarize yourself with any space heaters that may be in use.  If not already done so, unplug them from the wall sockets

When temperatures drop below freezing, set thermostats to an overnight level that will prevent pipes from freezing, ESPECIALLY if this has been a problem in the past

Make note of any tree branches that may be close to windows and have them trimmed down.  Strong winds can cause them to either swing in to the window or fall and break the glass

One way or another we experience storms.   Rather it be snow, rain, wind, etc, it is going to happen. When it does happen we need to be prepared. The following list is what is recommended at a minimum to be ready in the event of a storm.

    • Flash Light (it is possible for the power to go out during a storm)
    • Extra Batteries (flashlights never work when needed, having extra batteries can save you from the dark)
    • First Aid Kit (make sure nothing is outdated in the kit so it is possible to use the items if needed)
    • Cellphone (Now a days everyone has a cellphone, it is necessary to have one in case the house phone does not connection)
    • Canned Food (might not have food to cook, it is important to have up to date canned foods just in case for emergency purposes)
    • Manual Can Opener (do not just rely on an electrical can opener because the electricity can go out during a storm)
    • Bottled Water (water is the most important thing to have around the house)
    • Blanket (it is possible for the heaters at your property to stop working, make sure you have blankets around to keep you warm)
    • Battery Powered Weather Radio (using a radio can help you stay connected to what is happening during a storm in case your T.V does not work and you cannot connect to the weather channel)
    • Being prepared will help keep panic at a minimum especially in a family that has children involved. Not only will these items benefit you but it will help benefit your loved ones around as well. These items should be kept in a safe place with easy access in case of a storm emergency. Every month or so check the battery life and replace if needed. Make sure that the canned food and bottles of water are up to date and if need replacements to do it immediately during a storm season. Also remember to go over the items in the kit with your family so they are aware of everything put into the kit.

Canadian Wildfires Can Cause Soot and Ash

6/7/2019 (Permalink)

One of our Clients Property filled with soot from an indoor fire

Fires can create a lot of soot, smoke and ash. Soot is the one thing that is tough to see and a bother to clean. Most people might not realize the health hazards that come along after a fire, the soot and smoke can make it harder to breathe and see as well as cause headaches from inhaling the smoke. After the fire department puts the flames out you should always call SERVPRO of Langley to come put your home or business back together. 

In this case we had a local business damaged by the soot from a waste bin caught on fire. A warehouse full of computers, office furniture and supplies were damaged but we were able to get in there and restore everything. We cleaned up shop and the customer was very satisfied with our job.
