SERVPRO Generator This is one of the many pieces of large format equipment used to tackle large commercial jobs.

While all jobs are treated with the same importance, whether it is your Grandma's basement or you kid's Elementary School, not all jobs can be done with the same equipment. This is why at SERVPRO of Peoria we have specialized large format drying equipment to tackle large commercial jobs. 

While we still use a lot of the same air movers, dehumidifiers, negative air machines, etc. there is other equipment we add for these large jobs. This equipment includes large trailer mounted generators, as well as large trailer mounted desiccant dehumidifiers. 

This allows us to rapidly speed up the drying process in situations where time means everything. Often times, these commercial structures are large office spaces, factories, hospitals, schools, and many others facilities. All of them need to be open as quickly as possible, and our team uses our resources to make that happen.

If you have a loss at your facility, call SERVPRO of Peoria at 309-346-5600 and allow us to get you back to pre loss condition as quickly as possible.

ERP's, A Proactive Approach to an Emergency.

6/18/2022 (Permalink)

Commercial Store Front Be Proactive, Not Reactive. Have a Plan!

What is an ERP? ERP stands for Emergency Ready Profile. It is a file with all the information that would be needed in case of a disaster. 

Such as important contacts (to get authorization promptly), facility details (shut-off valve locations), identifying local emergency contacts, and much much more.

In business, being proactive can save millions of dollars because every minute a business is closed is money lost. Statistics show that 50% of businesses never reopen after a disaster but on the bright side, 50% of businesses do. 

We provide this to our commercial businesses at no cost. The peace of mind only takes a little time but makes a big impact when, and if, it ever needed to be used.

Summer Water Safety Tips to Avoid Water Damages While on Vacation.

6/17/2022 (Permalink)

Kids Splashing in a Pool. Keep the Worry Out of Your Vacation.

The gentle breeze, the sound of waves splashing, and the warm summer sun shining bright. This is what summer vacation is all about, but wait! Did anyone prepare for a storm to hit home while vacationing or think about a possible break in the pipes?

There are some things that we forget to plan in the excitement of vacations. Storms can produce Flash Floods and they are pretty common in Central Illinois. Did you make sure to have a plan in place to avoid water damage to your property before you left?

Most people do not think about the damages that may come when going away from home for an extended period of time. The very worst time for water damage to occur is when you’re away from home. In fact, the Insurance Information Institute has reported that the second most common insurance claim filed by homeowners is water damage to the home. This can come from ruptured washing machine hoses, water heater drips, leaky supply lines, or a busted pipe.  To avoid catastrophe while you’re on vacation this summer, here are tips that will help to protect your home while you are gone.

Complete a Walk thorough Prior to Leaving

Before you depart for your summer trip, be sure to take the time to inspect your home for any leaks. Check out all of the pipes under your kitchen/bathroom sinks, examine your water heater for any cracks or rust, make sure that windows and doors are properly sealed, and look out for any signs of roof leaks. Don’t forget to also evaluate any hoses that connect to major household appliances like dishwashers, washing machines, and refrigerators to ensure that they are not leaking or showing signs of severe wear.

Make Sure Your Gutters and Downspouts are Clean

Clogged-up rain gutters and downspouts can result in pooling water on your roof, and this can lead to major leaks and severe water damage, if not taken seriously. Also, you should make sure that your downspouts are discharging the proper distance away from your house (a minimum of 10 feet) to prevent flooding. 

Ask Someone to Check In On Your Home While you are gone

Having someone to house sit can help avoid damage. Checking on the home once a day will ensure that any leaks that do occur while you are gone will be caught and stopped before they can cause major damage.

Turn Off the Main Water Valve

This is a great option if you don't have someone you can trust to watch your house.

Shut Off Water Supply Valves

Sometimes, you might not be able to shut off your main water valve because you have an automatic sprinkler system or have asked someone to water your plants while you’re away. Even so, you can shut off the water supply to the most frequent culprits of water damage, such as toilets, ice makers, washing machines, etc. These appliances will all feature individual stops (shutoff valves) on their supply lines. 

Test the Sump Pump

Homeowners with sump pump systems should test them out prior to vacation to ensure that they will keep groundwater out of the basement. 

Taking the proper precautions can save you a lot of money and stress over the summer months.

Is Water Damage Covered in Your Policy?

6/16/2022 (Permalink)

Broken/Leaking Pipe. Review Your Policy and Make Sure You're Covered for Water Damage.

Did you know that not all Homeowner's policies cover water damage? 

For example, a flood can cause water to back up into the home and cause damage. Some insurance companies don't list, Water Back-Up of Sewers and Drains, on the Homeowner's policy. This is an extension or additional service/ add-on that the homeowner must add to their policy. In the event that a storm causes water damage, you want to make sure your property is covered.

A storm, flood, or plumbing problem can leave your home with extensive water damage. Immediate action is necessary to mitigate the damage. SERVPRO’s professionals specialize in repairing and restoring following residential water damage. 

Our customer-focused professionals will assess the residential water damage to your property. Then, we’ll help you understand the severity of the damage so you’re able to make the best decisions for the restoration of your home. Our top-notch people use the most advanced equipment to detect hidden moisture and extract standing water.

We have more than 50 years of experience in repair and restoration so you can trust us to help you develop a water damage restoration plan to help ensure your home is clean, dry, and restored to its pre-damaged condition.

Ready to switch to electric due to high fuel prices?

6/14/2022 (Permalink)

E-bike battery damaged due to fire. E-bike fire caused by a lithium-ion battery.

We can all agree that the rise in fuel prices has affected many Americans. Many are switching to electric e-bikes and e-scooters but before you do, this article contains important information and tips on preventing fire damage caused by lithium-ion batteries.

In the last year, the FDNY has operated at nearly 50 documented fires that were related to e-bikes and e-scooters. The origin of these fires was the lithium-ion battery power source. In most cases, these fires have started while the unit is being charged. 

The FDNY shared the following safety tips for lithium-ion batteries to help the public:

• Purchase and use devices that are listed by a qualified testing laboratory.     
• Follow the manufacturer's instructions for charging and storage.    
 • Do not charge a device under your pillow, on your bed, or a couch.    
 • Always use the manufacturer's cord and power adapter made specifically for the device     
• Keep batteries/devices at room temperature. Do not place in direct sunlight.     
• Store batteries away from anything flammable.    
• If a battery overheats or you notice an odor, change in shape/color, leaking, or odd noises from a device discontinue use immediately. 

These helpful tips can help spread awareness and avoid fire.

If you do find yourself facing damage from fire and smoke, stay safe and call us. We will help you through the process with the aftermath of the situation.
