You See Fire Damage, We See Water Damage

If your house or commercial property suffers from a fire, the farthest thought from your mind could be that your property will also suffer from water damage.  

When the Fire Department is called out to a fire, either residential or commercial, their main focus is to put the fire out!  Once the fire is out, everyone has cleared, and things have settled down, it might be a shock to walk into the property and not only see smoke and soot damage on your personal items and structure, but how much water damage you see as well.

Our SERVPRO of Anchorage team is highly trained in both areas and able to come out to your property to scope the damages and provide you and/or your insurance adjuster with an estimate.

Proactive not Reactive

For a business owner and homowner, a worst-case scenario involving fire or water damage can seem unthinkable until it suddenly becomes your reality.  Fire and water damage can happen as a result of many things, including storm damage.  In the aftermath of a storm, a quick response time from SREVPRO of Anchorage can minimize property damage.

Property owners should have a quick and convenient emergency disaster plan that connects them with vendors, necessary contacts, and pertinent information for if/when a storm happens.

When building an emergency plan, there are four key areas to remember:

1.  Identify your facility's greatest threats in order to assess the overall severity of the event.

2.  Document all vital information and establish clear communication activities.

3.  Expect the unexpected as there is no "textbook" storm.

4.  Keep your information updated and make sure your insurance company has all of the necessary information.

Trained for Tear Gas

Tear gas is a very hard substance to clean. Our technicians at SERVPRO of Anchorage are highly trained in this type of hazardous material cleanup.

When tear gas is deployed it comes off as small particles of liquid and solids, not actually a gas, but finely dispersed by an aerosol propellant. This allows for the chemicals to settle in on many surfaces.

To begin the cleanup process, our highly trained hazardous material cleanup technicians wash all affected surfaces, and once a room has been properly cleaned, we will seal off that area to prevent cross contamination. It may take an abundant amount of cleaning passes to remove the particles from the surfaces, especially if they are porous.

Our Technicians always use the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and cleaning products to ensure a safe and complete cleanup.

For any type of Biohazardous Cleanup, call SERVPRO of Anchorage 907-688-3001.

Changes due to Coronavirus

The Coronavirus has changed the social landscape more than we could have imagined.  The terms social distancing, the new normal and face coverings have become indoctrinated into our vocabulary.  The interaction with family, friends, and business associates has been directly impacted.  The traditional handshake is now riddled with fear, instead people are "bumping elbows."

As in the years following WWII, great effort was spent putting measures in place to reduce the likelihood of another global conflict.  Likewise, prevention of future viral pandemics is at the top of the list for most of the world.  SERVPRO of Anchorage is prepared to clean and disinfect your homes and businesses' according to protocols set forth by the CDC.  We have first-hand experience with COVID-19 cleaning, and we will go beyond the scope of work that a regular janitorial service will perform on a daily basis. 

Will it all get back to normal?  Yes.  When will that happen?  That remains unclear.  What is clear is that normalcy will return, and all along the way SERVPRO of Anchorage will be there for your business, your home, and our customers.  We are in this with you and proudly stand beside our first responders in fighting this silent enemy.

Your local SERVPRO of Anchorage team  wants you to know that we are here for you, in the same capacity that we always have been.  In addition to our everyday services, we are also trained in biohazard clean-up, which includes cleaning of your facilities for any issues including COVID-19.

Since the end of January, even before the statewide “Stay-at-Home” orders, our franchise has been working through a government contract to set-up and run all nationwide quarantine sites across the United States.  We also off-loaded the numerous cruise ships that docked on the West Coast, and were also called to clean the Life Center Care Home in Kirkland, Washington, which had one of the biggest outbreaks in the nation. Working closely with both the CDC, and the Department of Health and Human Services, we have a lot of first-hand experience that only SERVPRO of Anchorage can say that they have. 

Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns, we are just a phone call away.

Who do you call when a tree falls through your roof?

11/3/2019 (Permalink)

Our technicians at SERVPRO of North Anchorage, are always ready to help!  Heavy rains and strong winds can accompany just about any thunderstorm and they can cause a ton of storm damage. Winds pick up debris and move it through the are sometimes landing in power lines and or on top of houses. Rain floods homes that sit low and can make things really messy really quick!

We recently had a bout of strong wind storms which caused one resident to have to call us to help him with a huge tree branch that fell from a tree and through the roof of his house giving him a very unwelcomed skylight!

SERVPRO came in and packed out all of the residents belongings then did a major cleaning of the residence. We arranged for roofers to come in and mitigate and repair the roof and we loaded everything back in when the coast was clear!

If you have have storm damage in the Anchorage area and need help, give SERVPRO a call today!

Most homeowners and business owners know that during the winter months, pipes can freeze causing significant damage to your homes and businesses.  Usually when we think of storms, we think of wind, thunder, lightening and rain.  Storms can also come in the form of snow, which causes a whole new set of problems.  

Our SERVPRO of North Anchorage Storm Response Team is ready to mobilize the moment you call us.  Snow and ice can cause the obvious damage, from frozen pipes to water leaks and even flooding, but did you know that when their is a significant amount of snow at one time, the weight of the packed snow can also cause structural damage?
