Mold Clean Up & Removal Rhode Island

3/9/2022 (Permalink)

Mold is present on a damp windowsill. SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties is available to remove mold and mildew from your commercial property. Call us today.

Deep cleaning is something that many businesses need to do at least once a year. No matter what type or size of business you run, if mold is found you will likely need professional restoration services. Because of the warm weather, mold growth is more common in springtime in Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts. These problems can be solved permanently by our team of mold remediation specialists, even in large commercial or industrial spaces.

We must first identify the source of the moisture that is causing the mold growth. Sometimes, it may be necessary to remove sheetrock/drywall or insulation. Once these materials are saturated, they cannot be salvaged and should be removed and disposed of as soon as possible. Drop ceilings, carpets, and many other flooring types are affected by this. We will remove these materials and use any dehumidification technology that our project managers consider best to dry the area. So that mold growth is prevented, our project managers have been trained in how to use the most recent SERVPRO dehumidification technology.

Our techs will then clean any surfaces that have mold growth, but not must be removed. These could include surfaces like tiles, stone counter tops, cement structures, and food safety surfaces. We will use mildew and mold killing products that won't damage original surfaces, but will guarantee the fungus is completely eradicated.

You may need to hire construction services to repair or replace damaged building materials after your commercial property has been cleaned up from mold. We are available to help you in this area. We offer complete reconstruction services, including the replacement of drywall, flooring and drop ceilings.

If mold is discovered during spring cleaning of commercial properties, don't hesitate to call us. We will quickly find solutions and provide the necessary equipment to prevent it from happening again. Contact us now

SERVPRO Construction Services Near Me SERVPRO Commercial Construction Services Are Available In Rhode Island & Massachusetts

While residential construction is usually less expensive, commercial construction requires more time and money. These projects are also bigger, and the size of the building is larger than for a residential project. The right contractor can help you design a commercial space that will meet your needs and budget. Once you have a plan, you can start the construction process and start estimating the cost. The following tips will help you get the most out of your commercial construction project.

Make sure the contractor and client are on the same page with their expectations. Even though commercial construction may be a relatively straightforward process, some clients will require design changes and approval before moving forward. The first step is to create a design, which includes 3D models and renderings. Before proceeding with the actual project, it is important that the client approves the design. In commercial construction, a client should be consulted to ensure that the project will be completed to their satisfaction.

Many business owners are aware of the importance of industry and its contribution to the economy. However, a building loses its freshness and flair as it ages. Some business owners may opt to remodel an existing building or add another structure. These projects are more complex and time-consuming than a small-scale one, but SERVPRO understands the importance of getting it right. A contractor should be able to handle all aspects of the construction process.

Most of Rhode Island’s coastline lies in Newport & Bristol Counties dotted with beautiful homes and profitable businesses.

Choosing the Correct Water Removal Equipment for Your Business

flood damage property. When a flood disturbs business you need the help. of a professional. SERVPRO has the trained technicians and equipment for any size disaster.

SERVPRO helps with water removal in North Kingstown

When your business is flooded, either by bad weather or a plumbing problem, water removal is key to a successful restoration.

SERVPRO is on hand to help with water removal in your North Kingstown business. The more water we can remove, the easier it is to dry your property and restore your premises “Like it never even happened.”

The choice between a portable or a truck-mounted extractor is an important one:

  • Portable extractors are more flexible because we can take them into most parts of the building.
  • Portable extractors need an electricity supply.
  • Truck-mounted extractors are more powerful in the case of severe flooding.
  • Truck-mounted extractors use the work vehicle’s fuel.

If possible, it is better to use portable units for high rise buildings because of their hose length and flexibility. Truck-mounted units are noisier and less flexible but can provide extra suction power. We train our teams to assess the situation and pick the best tool for the job.

For water removal in your business, call SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties at (401) 847-8145.

This Charming North Kingston Town Is Perfect For A Relaxing Getaway

North Kingston is known for its beauty. With picturesque lakes, rolling green hills, and of course the stunning fall foliage, it is no wonder that New England attracts people who are ready for a different pace of life.

If you are coming to North Kingston for a visit, look no further as it is the perfect place to base yourself for your trip. This gorgeous little town is full of old-fashioned New England charm and is overflowing with fascinating historical buildings.

A Cozy Town In The Smallest State

Rhode Island is the smallest state, and as such, its towns tend to be little, quaint, and pretty. Kingston has a population of just 6,974 and is located within the bounds of the larger town of South Kingstown.

Kings Towne (as it was called then) has a long history, being founded in 1674. The town was split into North and South Kingstown in 1722, and then in 1742, the village of Exeter split off from the main town.

Explore History In and Around North Kingston

You are never far away from history in North Kingston. The area is chock a block with fascinating historical sites, which attract many history buffs. To start with, why not check out:

  • Smith's Castle, which is one of the oldest houses in Rhode Island. Smith's Castle was built in 1678, near to the original trading post of Roger Williams, the founder of Rhode Island. Smith's Castle has a bit of a gruesome history, being the only site on American soil where someone was hung, drawn, and quartered for treason. It has also been a dairy farm and is now a museum.
  • The village of Wakefield, which was first settled in the mid-eighteenth century. Wakefield started with a stagecoach stop and a tavern and quickly became the site of a snuff mill. Wakefield became a regional center of commerce until the mid-twentieth century when shops started moving out of the village. It has biking and walking trails and is a peaceful place to while away some time.
  • Peace Dale, a town from 1793 where you can see a wide range of architectural styles. On a stroll through Peace Dale, you can see Gothic Revival, Colonial Revival, Romanesque, and Greek Revival properties.

Rhode Island – Birthplace Of An Iconic Portrait

If you have ever used a one-dollar bill, then you have seen the well-known portrait of George Washington on it. The painter of that portrait, Gilbert Stuart, was a New England man who showed promise as a painter from a young age. When he was fourteen, he met the renowned Scottish portrait artist Cosmo Alexander, who tutored young Stuart in art.

Throughout his life, Stuart painted more than 1000 portraits, including portraits of six presidents. He wished to paint a portrait of George Washington so that he could support his family financially. He painted a series of portraits, which were so well received that he was kept busy for many years replicating them for clients who were happy to pay top dollar. One of these portraits of Washington graces the dollar bill today. 

Stuart was a bold painter who worked directly on the canvas without first laying down a sketch. This was very unusual for the time. Gilbert Stuart was born in Saunderstown, a village that lies within modern Kingstown. Saunderstown is a tiny, quaint village where you can:

  • Visit the Gilbert Stuart Birthplace to see where the painter was born. The house dates from 1750 and is now a lovely museum. There is a welcome center and art gallery so you can learn more about Gilbert Stuart. There are also relaxing grounds where you can see a millpond, herb garden, and operational grist and snuff mills. Walk the nature trails to discover the historic boat dock, a timber dam, and a Colonial burial ground. On Sundays, junior docents (children and adolescents) dress up in period attire and give house tours. 
  • Stop off at Casey Farm, where Daniel Coggeshall first built a home in 1725. When a local man named Silas Casey married Coggeshall's daughter, he also took ownership of the farm. The farm has remained undivided ever since and belonged to one of Casey's descendants until they gifted it to the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities. Today, you can visit the farm and enjoy a guided tour of the fields and historic houses. Casey's is still a working farm, which provides organic fruits and vegetables to the surrounding area.
  • Visit the historic district to see the beautiful wood-framed homes, the country store, and the early 20th-century post office.

Local SERVPRO Franchise Understands The Needs Of Historic Buildings

Bad weather, a broken pipe, or a damaged appliance can all cause water damage. SERVPRO is a national franchise company that is locally owned and operated. That means local business owners can rest assured that their local SERVPRO team understands historic buildings' unique needs.

SERVPRO Takes Care Of Water Removal In North Kingston

Whether your business is in a rambling historic property or a modern building, you need a water removal company you can trust. Fast water removal is vital because:

  • The longer water is left, the more damage it can do by seeping into building materials.
  • The risk of mold increases with every passing minute in water damage situations.
  • Fast water removal improves the chance of being able to salvage furniture and soft furnishings.
  • Being closed during cleanup is not good for business and can affect your profits.

We equip our technicians with a range of powerful pumps to swiftly remove water. These include free-standing pumps, truck-mounted pumps, and smaller carpet wands. Our teams also use water extraction equipment to press water from carpets and ensure more thorough water removal.

After water removal, we set about cleaning, disinfecting, and deodorizing the area, to leave your business, "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties is here to assist all local businesses with water removal. We take care of the process from extraction to deodorizing, and we can also provide evidence for your insurance claims. Call us at (401) 847-8145.

Is it Possible to Dry a Large Commercial Property in Newport Efficiently?

10/14/2020 (Permalink)

flooding in property If your property suffers from a flood event, drying it quickly could save you further expense.

Commercial Flood Damage Can Cause Business Interruption and Expense. SERVPRO Helps Newport Companies Recover Quickly after Flood Events.

Why is drying difficult in commercial premises?
When a large-scale water event affects your Newport business, it can be frustrating waiting to return to work. Flood losses to company premises can sometimes be more challenging than residential flooding, but they do not have to take longer. The main difficulty in dealing with water intrusion in larger spaces is an inability to effectively control the indoor atmosphere. Many types of the dehumidifier are designed for smaller, residential spaces. SERVPRO technicians have access to more extensive commercial desiccant units that can be placed outside the premises and ducted into the affected area.

When are desiccant dehumidifiers used for property drying?
    •    Desiccant equipment performs better in cold and dry conditions than refrigerant dehumidifiers.
    •    They are capable of producing the driest air of any dehumidifier.
    •    Commercial dehumidifiers can be fitted with ductwork to ensure doorways remain secure.

How are industrial dehumidifiers set up in a business property?
Usually, a technician dealing with commercial flood damage in your Newport premises performs extraction and air-movement as a priority. Dehumidifiers are used to reduce the humidity and complete the drying process. Often a large dehumidifier is ducted from the outside of the building with smaller portable units placed in wet areas inside. A flood can impact all areas of your business, which is why SERVPRO uses multiple resources to ensure it dries quickly, and you can resume work as soon as possible.

How do commercial desiccant dehumidifiers work?
    •    Air passes over absorbent materials like silica gel to extract moisture.
    •    Heaters evaporate collected moisture, which is then vented outside the premises.
    •    The low level of humidity afforded by desiccants makes them ideal for drying large surface areas of concrete or other framing materials.

If your property suffers from a flood event, drying it quickly could save you further expense. Contact SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties at (401) 847-8145.

What Extractors Work Best in Newport Warehouses?

5/21/2020 (Permalink)

in the middle of remodel Having water issues in your Newport business? Call SERVPRO to mitigate your problem.

We have reliable units and pumps that can work continually to remove several feet of standing water after substantial loss incidents. 

Warehouse water losses can be a considerable challenge for restoration teams primarily because of the large open floor layouts in these Newport commercial properties. When water losses are severe enough, the warehouse floor can contend with several inches or even feet of standing water. 

It is critical that water removal in Newport warehouses begins immediately, and that our team or competent individuals stop the flow of new water into the affected areas of the facility. The longer that you wait for extraction, drying, and recovery efforts, the more damage that can happen to the stored inventory and stock in the building. 

What Happens to Stored Items? 

Though you might have many of the items in your warehouse up on pallets, it rarely takes long to reach the 6 inches of clearance to damage stored stock with a severe loss. Content management can come in three potential ways:

  • On-site relocation
  • On-site drying and surface cleaning
  • Off-site restoration and recovery 

Our SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties can help to remove water quickly and protect your inventory. Give us a call anytime at (401) 847-8145.

How Do I Get Rid of Mold in My North Kingston Gym?

the beginnings of molding Having mold issues in your North Kingston business? Call SERVPRO for their professional help.

Our SERVPRO team can help with immediate remediation solutions and long-term preventative steps to avoid mold recurrences. 

Mold is widely misunderstood and underappreciated for its potential health effects and structural deterioration in North Kingston gyms. Moisture content is a nearly constant struggle in this facility of yours, which can make it a challenge to avoid mold altogether. 

Addressing mold damage in your North Kingston gym should happen immediately. Microbial threats can spread quickly throughout the facility and can cause possible health effects to the patrons of your gym or your staff. Removing mold colonies involves several strategies ranging from abrasive cleaning with media blasting or sanding to discarding damaged materials and reinstalling them. 

What Can I Do to Stop Mold Happening Again? 

One of the objectives of any business owner affording remediation is avoiding the circumstance a second time. There are several objectives to achieving this result for your gym, and some of the focal points include: 

  • Reducing moisture content
  • Promoting airflow 
  • Utilizing air scrubbers 

Microbial threats can be damaging to the structural integrity of hosting materials. Our SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties team can help with efficient remediation strategies. Give us a call anytime at (401) 847-8145.

Commercial Property Owners in North Kingston Need to Call SERVPRO After a Fire

Dealing with the aftermath of a fire in your commercial building in North Kingston can be overwhelming.

Can a professional team remove fire odor?

Fires leave behind many consequences. They can damage your inventory, compromise your equipment, and weaken your structure. For some, the most noticeable residue is the acrid smell of smoke left behind. Despite your best efforts, you may be unable to eliminate this unseemly reminder of the fire, and that is where SERVPRO excels. In our course of business, we seek to eliminate odors by applying techniques including the following-

  • Odor counteracting pellets
  • Ozone generators
  • Thermal fogging

Our goal is to neutralize or eliminate the smell molecule, as opposed to just masking the stench.

Contact SERVPRO to Perform Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Your North Kingston Office

Water damage in an office building can prevent you from doing business and put the safety and health of your employees at risk. When you notice signs of commercial water damage, you need to take action right away.

What can affect the restoration process?

Restoring a commercial property is usually more complicated than residential restoration. We can deal with commercial water damage in your North Kingston office by taking several steps. Some factors that affect the restoration process include:

  • The structure and size of the commercial building
  • Varying use of space
  • The severity of the damage
  • Number of people in the building

Apart from the above factors, there is a time constraint for completing the job since business activities should continue as soon as possible. We certify our team of experts through the (IICRC) Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification.

What can I do to prevent further damage?

You can prevent further water damage to your office by locating the source of the leak and stopping it. Before beginning any work, make sure you wear the right clothes and protective gear. Also, make sure the power to the affected area is out. You can use a shop vac to remove the water.

How do you dry a property?

Inadequate drying can lead to expensive repairs. Our team understands building and material science well. Therefore, we do not just place drying equipment in property but rather establish a drying plan based on the challenges and needs of a project. Since we understand buildings construction, we inspect for moisture effectively, identify materials and assemblies, and create a detailed demo and drying plan. Some of the drying and moisture detection equipment we use includes:

  • Axial air movers – They move large volumes of air in the affected area to increase the evaporation rate. The equipment can dry even the hard to reach areas, including wall cavities.
  • Desiccant dehumidifiers – They remove moisture from the air. Desiccant dehumidifiers use chemicals that absorb water readily, and they produce the driest air.
  • Moisture meters – we use them to measure the moisture content in various materials.

Who Can I Call When My Cafe Needs Commercial Water Cleanup?

Certified Restoration Professionals Can Restore your North Kingston Business With Commercial Water Cleanup

While it can be devastating to find water damage in the back of the house in your eatery, it is just as crucial to address it quickly when you find leaks or waterlogged materials in the front of the house. Polished flooring with vapor barriers can spread water to furniture, upholstery, drywall, and fabrics if left unchecked, leaving you with a potentially overwhelming amount of cleanup.

If your cafe requires commercial water cleanup in North Kingston for your facility's structure or its contents, SERVPRO technicians are ready to assist you, even on weekends and holidays. Disaster does not occur on a schedule, so this team is always prepared to mitigate damage and restore your dining area to its preloss condition. SERVPRO's restore-first approach strives to minimize loss and maximize savings. 

What Should I Consider When Choosing a Disaster Mitigation Team?

  • How much experience does the firm have with water damage mitigation? 
  • Does the company employ the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-certified technicians who follow established standards for commercial water cleanup?
  • Can this firm accurately measure moisture and remediate water damage or microbial growth in and behind structures while observing local regulations for business cleaning?
  • Does the team use EPA-registered antimicrobials and OSHA-approved cleaning solutions?

You can breathe a sigh of relief: SERVPRO does all of this and much more. 

How Does SERVPRO Remove Water From My Facilities?

SERVPRO's extraction systems, whether they are rovers, commercial wet/dry vacuums, portable extractors, or suction pads for carpeting, are all tools that can successfully restore your space when in the hands of certified restoration technicians. Extraction is as much as 500 times more effective than skipping straight to structural drying with air movers and dehumidifiers. Hence, it is a crucial step for keeping the drying process as efficient as possible. 

SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties serves the community with mitigation that is Faster to Any Size Disaster. You can begin the industrial disaster cleanup process with a phone call to the team at (401) 847-8145.

Hotel Lobby Flood

10/30/2017 (Permalink)

When disaster strikes a business or commercial property SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties has scored high ranks with our clients, we understand the importance of ensuring a business or commercial is in operation as soon as possible. In many cases we are able to isolate the area where the disaster has struck and the business can remain in operation. Recently we were called to a disaster at a hotel where water from persistent rains flooded the lobby. Upon arrival our first goal was to clean and restore as much of the lobby as possible. We knew that by doing so we could allow the hotel to operate and service their customers as we continued to mitigate and dry the public areas of the business. Our team built temporary barriers to block the view of the equipment and the crew as the mitigation work was underway, 24/7 until the lobby was 100% recovered.

Serving Newport, RI

Some of the most rewarding work we do is directly in our community. When we are called to a disaster in our hometown of Newport, RI we know that our every-step is on display to individuals we may end up seeing around the community many times over afterward and we must step-up our performance. A few years ago we had been called to a summer home which had flooded after a winter storm. We were on the scene within the hour and began the process of mitigating and repairing the home. Little did we know the owner of the home was also a local business owner and his boatyard also suffered damage after the storm. Thanks to our crew and their professional approach in the beach home we were called into work on and mitigate the water damaged suffered in the warehouse and office building of the yard.

Do you oversee or manage a Commercial Facility? 

Do you know where every single shut off valve is in that facility? 

What do you do if you have water running in your lobby?

These are important questions you have to ask yourself if you own or manage a commercial property. Water and Fire losses can cause significant downtime for you business if not addressed in a proper time manner.
