HVAC Commercial Fire

5/28/2021 (Permalink)

Commercial HVAC Safety is important, get your HVAC's checked regularly to avoid any fire damage!

Here at SERVPRO of Victoria, safety is important to us when dealing with a fire emergency.  After a fire emergency, our team is dedicated to responding immediately to business after a fire to help prevent any secondary damage.  Following a fire, our crew takes close attention to the HVAC system and ductwork.   HVAC fire hazards are present at any time of the year. Fortunately, many of these risks are preventable.

The Top HVAC Fire Hazards:

  • Old, corroded, or broken parts: This problem often stems from an HVAC unit that is not regularly serviced. Problems with essential parts can lead to decreased efficiency and can potentially lead to potential fire hazards.
  • Items are stored too close to the HVAC unit: The HVAC unit itself produces a considerable amount of heat. Storing combustible items such as boxes, paper, motor oil, and chemicals too close to the unit creates a high-risk environment for a fire.
  • Problems with connections or gas pressure: Problems with connections in a gas furnace can lead to toxic gas being released into the home, leading to both health and fire hazards.
  • Electrical problems: Whether the unit has a loose cord connection, a frayed cord, an old cord that overheats, or another issue, electrical problems with HVAC units can easily spark furnace fires.
  • Leaking fuel line: This can be a harder problem to spot since many fuel lines are located inside or behind the unit. Yearly inspections can help catch old, at-risk fuel lines before they start leaking and posing a major fire hazard.
  • Improper installation: When an HVAC unit is installed improperly, it can lead to many problems such as reduced airflow and efficiency, and increased costs. Improper installation can also cause serious problems such as carbon monoxide poisoning and fire hazards.

SERVPRO of Victoria is always here to help 24/7.  Our team understands the stress and worry that comes with fire or water damage and the disruption it causes your life and home or business.    

Commercial Maintenance Check Up

3/24/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO employee working SERVPRO of Victoria is dedicated to helping you!

It is very important to keep up with your commercial maintenance needs because this can prevent crucial damages to your property. Taking a look at the hot water heater to see when the last time it was replaced or checking the condensation lines coming from your air conditioning unit is a quick and easy preventative measure. These are just some of the things you can check to prevent damages to your business.

Most water damages come from a preventable source such as the hot water heater, air conditioning condensation line, or sometimes even from a leaking faucet in the break room. With hot water heaters, you should replace them every 8–10 years. A replacement will vary with the severity of your local weather, the design of the unit, the quality of installation, and the maintenance your unit has received. With an air conditioner condensation line we would recommend cleaning it once a year to maintain a blockage-free line.

Performing these two quick and easy checks can go a long way in preventing any potential issues.   If you have any questions about mold remediation, feel free to contact SERVPRO of Victoria.

Frozen outdoor faucet SERVPRO of Victoria is here to help to make it "Like it never even happened."

Does this seem like the wettest winter in Sugar Land?  Temperatures are lower, more mixed winter weather has fallen, and icy roads have overtaken Victoria.   If we recall correctly, it has been a long time since we’ve seen these kinds of weather patterns especially this time of year.  While we have no control over the weather, we do have the opportunity to keep the weather from affecting our homes or business.  To help prevent weather-related damages from hurting your home or business, apply some of the following tips to protect your property:

  • Keep gutters clear of leaves, sticks, and other debris to help ensure they can drain properly. Make sure downspouts direct water away from the home or business
  • Wrap water pipes in your crawl spaces with insulation sleeves to slow heat transfer and prevent freezing
  • If you have a fireplace, keep the flue closed when you're not using it
  • Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets connected to pipes that run through unheated or unprotected spaces

toilet overflow SERVPRO of Victoria is here to help when disaster strikes your business!

Common toilet problems and plumbing issues can lead to water damage in a business.  Over time, plumbing issues can cause quite a bit of problem if not maintained regularly.  By taking care of toilet issues as soon as possible plumbing problems occur is the best way to prevent further related water damage.

    • A low flow toilet is not able to handle the demands of your household
    • The trap between the drain line and the toilet bowl becomes blocked

Flames SERVPRO of Victoria logo and info top corner SERVPRO of Victoria here to help when disaster strikes.

No matter how big or small a fire is, a workplace fire could be catastrophic for your business. Fire drills are an important part of working in a commercial building as they can keep people safe in case of an emergency.  However, they are often ignored.  To prevent any employees from getting injured or fatalities, it’s important to be prepared.  Here are a few fire drill tips for the workplace to take seriously and limit confusion in case of a fire emergency.

  1. Prepare an evacuation plan

It is important to come up with a plan.  By creating a plan, it is important to be as detailed as possible to create little to no confusions.  Outline exit routes in the building and make a clear outline of actions that employees will need to take to get to the escape destination.  Ensure the plan includes the phone number for commercial building restoration services as well.

  1. Train and communicate with your employees

Once the plan has been created, introduce the fire drill to the staff.  Help the team understand the importance of the fire drill and ensure to follow the foolproof plan.   Before the first fire drill communicate with the staff in advance.  This will prepare them to act in accordance with the set procedure. 

  1. Practice

By running drills, you can feel prepared in case of an actual fire.  During these practice, runs be sure to set some goals.  A goal should be set to identify how well the evacuation plan works.  After the drill in complete assess the metrics to help improve the performance the next time a fire drill is conducted. 

  1. Follow up

Once a run-through of the drill has taken place, be sure to follow up on any corrections.  Revisit the plan and make any adjustments needed. 

Remember, fire drills are here to help ensure everyone's safety in case of a fire emergency.  By conducting the process regularly, you can improve your response to a catastrophic situation.  SERVPRO of Victoria is dedicated to helping our community, we are always here to help! 

Small Water Damages Become Nightmare for Business

1/8/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO equipment installed in affected room to help dry water damage SERVPRO of Victoria has the equipment to help dry out the affected areas in your business!

What happens when those small water damages go unnoticed, or moisture soaks into a building’s structural components where it cannot be detected by the naked eye?  These incidents may sound relatively harmless, but given time, excess moisture can lead to serious problems. 

In as little as 24 to 48 hours, microscopic mold spores, naturally present in all structures, can grow into visible mold.  Fueled by the moisture, these fungi feed on a variety of building subcomponents including wood, paint, paper, carpet padding, and contents. 

While the debate rages on regarding impact mold have on human health, mold and mildew growth are recognized as major contributors to indoor air quality problems.  These nightmares happen every day as a direct result of those small water damages that gradually take their toll on buildings and homes.  The recipe for disaster is the combination of excess moisture, a food source for mold found in organic building materials (such as wood, drywall, some types of insulation), and a time delay in removing the moisture.
