Work with SERVPRO Ahead of Water Loss or Other Disasters to Minimize the Disruption and Accelerate the Cleanup in Your Arlington Restaurant

Water is a necessity and a convenience in Arlington restaurants. It is sipped by customers, used as a cooking aid and ingredient, and helps wash the dishes and allow the restrooms to function. When a water main slices open due to a remodeling error at a neighboring business, you might fear a shutdown for an unspecified time. No company wants that uncertainty on the menu, but water removal is a tricky operation.

Are There Strategies We Can Explore to Keep Our Business Running During Water Mitigation and Remediation?

In a competitive foodservice market like that of Arlington, water cleanup closure could nudge your customer base to make their reservations at another eatery permanently. People are busy and very disappointed when a favorite restaurant has to close its doors and fail to feed our hungry families. We encourage our commercial customers to contact us before any water damage to explore the creation of an Emergency READY Profile Plan (ERP) to avoid this outcome.

Whom Do I Call to Set Up an Emergency READY Profile Plan (ERP)?

Give the SERVPRO main number a call to schedule a no-obligation assessment with one of our experienced project managers. Expect an in-depth inspection of all spaces inside your business, and a discussion about the firms that might share common areas or walls, and storage and utility areas with your business. We want to understand your physical layout and how your restaurant works, for example:

  • Location of utility lines and shutoffs
  • Location of restrooms, sinks
  • Bar set up
  • Pre-opening prep times
  • How heavy water use tasks such as dishwashing or par-cooking are staffed and staggered through the workday and night
  • Hours of operation
  • Number of staff in various spaces
  • Separation of dining areas from food and drink prep
  • Configuration of any take out ordering and pickup spaces
  • Typical customer load and variations depending on time and day of the week

Why Does the Project Manager Take Pictures of My Business?

As our project manager moves through your restaurant's spaces, a series of pictures are stored and saved to your digital ERP file. Because we need all of our work crews to have comprehensive information about the layout and particular concerns in your business space, we archive visual reminders to assist if they pick up the call.

Does My Opinion Matter When Creating an ERP?

We know you have concerns similar to other customers in the restaurant business, but we also understand your business is unique. During the assessment, we discuss ways that your foodservice mission could continue even if we are onsite orchestrating water removal and structural drying. We are familiar with ways to complete a water cleanup project while allowing you to operate at partial or adapted capacity, such as:

  • Erecting containment barriers around the main work site
  • Scaling our response efforts up to finish tasks quickly during non-dining hours, which can involve:
  • Larger work crews for shorter periods
  • Additional high-capacity extraction equipment
  • Sealing the containment area with air scrubbers to prevent drift of any debris and enhance the efficiency of drying equipment

Do You Have Any Advice to Minimize the Effect of a Disaster?

One of the ways we help clients prepare for water or another disaster that could occur is to evaluate if the implementation of safeguards would help. Our recommendations vary from business to business, but some of the suggestions we might extend are:

  • Raising equipment permanently on blocks
  • Scheduling plumbing inspections if drains seem slow or if micro leaks are present
  • Consulting with building management to be made aware of any planned plumbing maintenance or construction
  • Writing and disseminating among your employees an emergency plan

Is It Worth My Time to Fill Out Details on the SERVPRO ERP App?

All information you provide helps us respond more effectively and efficiently when you experience a water loss. Some of the things you can share that make our response more streamlined and specific to your situation are:

  • Contact information for the vendors and contractors who sold and installed your equipment and systems
  • A clear indication that SERVPRO is your preferred restoration partner and has permission to begin emergency work
  • A list of your highest priorities as we respond
  • Designated employees or other individuals who can act on your behalf if you are out of town or otherwise unavailable when the emergency occurs

You will not regret working with SERVPRO of Arlington / Jacksonville East on disaster preparation through the development of an Emergency READY Profile (ERP). Call us at (904) 721-2230 to schedule a consultation today.

We Have Efficient Mitigation Solutions for Flooded Arlington Residences and Work to Protect and Salvage Exposed Contents from Irreparable Damage 

Flooding can be a considerable threat to an Arlingtonhome. With how quickly water damage can penetrate the property and spread throughout the residence, in no time at all, the whole house can be affected by the disaster. While this means that many structural elements have become exposed to floodwater, it also means that your personal belongings, furniture, electronics, and clothing have met with the migrating threat. 

Content management is often considered one of the most valuable services we offer in recovering flood damage to Arlington properties. In many ways, your personal belongings, keepsakes, and treasures make your house a home. Protecting and restoring these items amid a crisis is one of the ways that we fixate on helping you through the traumatic experience and keeping the costs and length of restoration to a minimum. 

What Restoration Occurs On-Site?  

With surface cleaning and drying, we have several strategies that we can employ with your belongings encountered in your house after a flood. The goal for these possessions is to relocate them to a safer space in the property to prevent them from becoming overwhelmed by migrating loss effects. If too damaged, we can also choose our pack-out procedure, which moves these items to our SERVPRO facility for focused care. 

What Happens to Your Belongings in Our Care?  

There are many steps to storing and recovering your possessions after a flood loss incident. Our cleaning technicians in our warehouse can employ several strategies to restore these contents' look and function when contaminants or substantial water damage threaten these items. Some of the focal points of the pack-out process include: 

  • Cleaning
  • Drying
  • Deodorizing
  • Safe Storage 

Flooding can be destructive to what matters most. Give our SERVPRO of Arlington / Jacksonville East team a call to help protect these items. We are available 24/7 at (904) 721-2230.

Can Plumbing Issues Bring my Arlington Business to a Halt?

Using Commercial Water Cleanup Services Can Help you to Re-open Faster and Minimize Lost Revenue in Arlington

Can I ask the staff to clean up standing water in my business?

Water mitigation is beyond the remit of your regular staff, who should be focusing on their regular job roles and may not have the equipment to perform the task properly. Furthermore, there is a risk of injury when dealing with a water emergency that could place your staff at risk. Using Arlington-based restorers with experience working on business premises is the safest pathway to get your business running smoothly again.

What are the benefits of commercial business restoration?

• Access to advanced cleaning or drying equipment and techniques
• Ample human resources for large or small business premises
• Expert mitigation that abides with state and federal regulation

Can I request specialist cleaning from a commercial restorer?

Restorers have a specific skill set that is suited to the task at hand. However, as a business owner, you may have special requirements. If a water leak is the result of a malfunctioning appliance, for example, you may need an electrical specialist or plumber to fix the problem at the source. SERVPRO commercial crew chiefs have extensive contacts for specialty drying solutions. These may include document recovery as well as trusted third-party technicians.

What we can do during water restoration in your Arlington property is to mitigate against further losses until a specialist can arrive. With electrical equipment, we can use equipment to prevent water from condensation inside the appliance. This can be beneficial to mitigating against permanent losses. If valuable documents are wet, we can freeze dry them temporarily until restoration at a later date.

Controlling water impact on business and mitigating loss is a professional requirement. Contact SERVPRO of Arlington / Jacksonville East at (904) 721-2230.

What Role Does Drying Equipment Play in Commercial Flood Damage Mitigation & Restoration?

Drying Equipment is Used to Remove Excess Interior Moisture from Your Arlington Business that Could Cause Future Property Damage and Negative Health Effects. 

The first thing Arlington business owners think about after they experience flooding is flood water extraction. Inches or even feet of dirty, smelly standing water in their facilities quickly motivates them to act. This reaction, of course, is because this problem is easy to see and smell. With that said, however, there are other, less noticeable, but equally destructive, issues that could also result from flooding. Standing floodwater in your building saturates its structural elements and interior air with moisture. This moisture, in time, leads to the proliferation of microorganisms that could structurally weaken your building and potentially cause negative health effects. It is for this reason that using the right drying equipment after water extraction is essential.

What Can Happen If Your Business’ Interior is Not Dried to Normal Moisture Levels?            

A lot of commercial flood damage in Arlington results from unresolved or improperly handled airborne moisture issues. When your facilities flood, dirty water saturates floors, walls, and any contents in its path. At the same time, evaporation fills your business’ interior air with moisture and condensation deposits water droplets all around on different surfaces. If this excess water and water vapor are not adequately removed, it can eventually lead to the:

 Swelling and warping of wooden flooring, wall paneling and studs, windows, and doors

 Tarnishing, rusting, and corrosion of metal surfaces

 Deterioration of paint and drywall

 Growth of harmful bacteria and fungi

The destructive effects of moisture, combined with those of unchecked microorganism growth, can slowly undermine the integrity of your building. Over time, all of this could make it structurally unsound and hazardous to use. While all this is occurring, proliferating bacteria and fungi could negatively impact your health and that of your employees.        

What Advanced drying hardware can be used to Effectively Dry My Arlington Business?

The effective removal of destructive moisture from your Arlington business requires specialized equipment. This can pose a problem since not all flood damage mitigation and remediation companies have it. Fortunately, though, the most experienced and reputable services, like SERVPRO, do. We have a wide range of industrial-strength hardware and gear to successfully handle most commercial drying needs. Our commercial drying equipment includes:

 Powerful fans and air blowers

 Massive desiccant dehumidifiers mounted on trailers.

 State-of-the-art low-grain refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers.

 Advanced injectidry systems.

These impressive tools enable SERVPRO technicians to effectively and efficiently dry large structures quickly. At the same time, they also help us maintain interior climates to limit further property damage.   

How Does Some of SERVPRO’s Advanced Equipment Work?

Fascinating innovations in drying technology have occurred in recent years, and SERVPRO has taken full advantage of them. Our trailer-mounted desiccant dehumidifiers pull moisture-laden air out of your building, their adsorbent-coated wheels remove massive amounts of water vapor from the incoming air, and then the moisture is blown off the wheel with the outgoing air. This process is made possible by the very nature of adsorbents like silica gel, which do not absorb liquids and change form. Instead, these solids attract and are coated by liquids, and then their coating is blown off with the outgoing airflow.     

Another innovative tool in SERVPRO’s extensive arsenal is the LGR dehumidifier. Whereas desiccant dehumidifiers use adsorbents to dry the air, LGR dehumidifiers cool the air to extract the water via condensation. These appliances’ double cooling system condenses water from the air until moisture levels are well below forty grains/pound. Injectidry systems can be attached to dehumidifiers to dry hard-to-reach areas behind walls and ceilings. We plug these systems into small holes drilled into wall baseboards and ceilings.   

What Are the Overall Benefits of Using This High-Tech Equipment?

The mitigation and restoration needs of Arlington businesses often differ greatly from those of homeowners. Often, commercial properties are much larger than residences, have more strict time constraints, have public obligations, and a significant socio-economic impact. Considering all this, there are numerous benefits to using the previously mentioned hardware. Some of these are:

 Better ensuring the future structural integrity of your buildings.

 More effectively preventing or limiting harmful microorganism growth.

 Reducing the time it takes to completely dry your business site.

 Lowering costs by enabling technicians to complete work more quickly, thereby making it possible to save more existing elements instead of replacing them

This technologically advanced equipment can get you back in business in less time than more conventional tools.

Natural disasters happen in Arlington, and when they do, there is little any of us can do to avoid them. When they affect your business, you need to recover as soon as possible. If not, you could lose a lot of money and, if remediation takes long enough, go out of business. Therefore, you must contact a company with the right tools to get your commercial job done fast.     

If your commercial property is ever impacted by flooding, contact SERVPRO of Arlington / Jacksonville East at (904) 721-2230 for assistance.

Water Damage in Arlington Kitchen Gets Rapid Cleanup

A residential kitchen is one of the most common areas in a Arlington home that receives water damage. This is in part due to the number of appliances that tap into the supply lines as well as the plumbing to sinks, installed pasta arms, and more.

A homeowner in Arlington with water damage needed help with the cleanup in his kitchen. He got up and found water standing on the floor. He was not sure where the water emanated from and turned off the water to the home to halt any further loss from occurring.


Getting your house back to normal is a priority after a water loss of any size. The certified techs have extensive training in the restoration sciences. They know how to handle not only the results of this type of damage but also secondary issues that may arise, such as mold or foul odors.

First Actions

SERVPRO technicians arrived at the home and immediately began extraction efforts to remove the water. The toe kick under the cabinet needed removal so the extractor wands could reach underneath. Afterward, they scoped the floor to determine if any seepage occurred. The ceramic tile floor had sealant on the grout lines, and the moisture detection equipment did not show any moisture within the subfloor.

Finding All Areas of Water Loss

Pinpointing the place a leak started is paramount to getting it repaired. The techs moved the refrigerator and dishwasher as they were side-by-side, and both had a supply line connection. The culprit was the fridge, and the techs disconnected the frayed line and found the sheetrock behind the appliance needed removal as it had deteriorated due to long-term leakage. The techs found no other damages and moved on to the drying phase of mitigation.

Drying and Repairs

Once the kitchen confirmed in readings as dry, the techs provided the homeowner with a list of actions taken during mitigation as well as the necessary repairs to the sheetrock after the plumber hired by the property owner installed a new supply line to the fridge.

SERVPRO of Arlington / Jacksonville East at (904) 721-2230 has the certified techs and equipment to turn around properties with water damage and make the loss, "Like it never even happened."

Tropical Storms and Hurricanes in Florida

4/29/2020 (Permalink)

image of dark clouds SERVPRO Says: Call Us for Fast Hurricane Damage Restoration

SERVPRO Can Mitigate Storm Damages After a Hurricane

An intense storm, a tropical storm is known by a very low pressure and swirling wind rotation, which usually forms in the tropics. These types of storms can bring very heavy rain and damaging winds to the areas which they pass over.

Even though tropical storms are not as powerful as hurricanes, they can be quite destructive as well, causing injury, property damage or even death. Typically, hurricanes will diminish in power to tropical storms.

Development of Tropical Storms and Hurricanes in Arlington

A combination of factors are needed for a tropical storm to form:  

1. A disturbance in the atmosphere, typically an area of cool air and low pressure
2. Ocean water that is warmer than 80 degrees Fahrenheit
3. A low, vertical wind shear, which means the wind speeds have to be consistent at various altitudes.

Even with the combination of these factors, hurricanes can develop only a certain distance away from the equator. This is because of the Coriolis effect, which is created by the rotation of the earth and is too weak near the equator to provide a storm which is developing the necessary spin.

These storms start out as a disturbance in the atmosphere of low pressure. The wind comes into this low-pressure area from areas of high pressure surrounding it. Once the warm ocean water warms the air, it rises at the center of the storm that is forming where it condenses, which makes thunderstorms.

Essentially, the system feeds on itself, using as fuel the warm water of the ocean. Usually, tropical storms show a recognizable pattern of rotation when they are seen from a satellite. However, they don’t usually have the spiral pattern and eye that is known to go along with hurricanes.

An important part of nature, tropical cyclones carry heat from the lower latitudes by the equator to the latitudes that are farther north. These storms can form in various regions of the world, including the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, near Australia and the South Pacific, the India Ocean, the Arabian Sea and in the Bay of Bengal. In the Eastern Hemisphere hurricanes are usually called typhoons. SERVPRO says: no matter the name, they are very dangerous, so be prepared.

Dangers of Tropical Storms

These storms can bring damage in many ways. The biggest danger may be the heavy rainfall that goes along with hurricanes, causing severe mudslides and flooding from the groundwater. Three-foot rainfall totals over several days aren't uncommon with these storms, even when they are some distance from the coast where the storm made contact with land.

Winds of high speeds can turn things such as outdoor furniture, signs, and tree limbs into flying, high-speed projectiles, making hazards for animals and humans, and even breaking windows or destroying or damaging buildings. The wind can also create large waves, the always dangerous tidal surge, which could endanger people living on the coast or boaters. The storm surge or high storm tide which goes along with tropical storms can go over lowland areas and destroy property, or injuring or killing people. Tropical storms can also create tornadoes, causing, even more, destruction.

 Tropical storms and hurricanes can bring devastating damages to your property, so when this happens, talk with us at SERVPRO of Arlington / Jacksonville East by calling us at (904) 721-2230 for emergency service.

We are experienced and trained to handle storm damages. We will come out quickly to your property to begin the remediation process.

About Coronavirus

The CDC is responding to an outbreak of a respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and has spread to 60 locations internationally (as of this publication), including cases in the United States. The virus known as “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID- 19”)  is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person or through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

Causes For Bathroom Flooding In Your Arlington Home

4/21/2020 (Permalink)

faucet running No matter how it happened, you want to take care of flooding right away to avoid serious water damage from happening

Bathroom Flooding

No one ever wants to open their bathroom door to find that there is a flood all over the carpet or floor. However, bathroom floods can happen when you least expect it, and it is often a problem that is panic-inducing for anyone who does not know how to fix it. No matter how it happened, you want to take care of it right away to avoid serious water damage from happening, which is why you need the experts from SERVPRO helping you to clean the mess.

Common causes of flood damage in your Arlington home bathroom include

  • Clogging in your pipes or drains. Toilet tissue can lead to blocked pipes easily. When you flush with a clog present, more water fills the bowl and spills onto the floor.
  • Another common reason for bathroom flooding is malfunctions.
  • A toilet float that is malfunctioning can cause water to fill and overflow continuously. Burst pipes can also cause major damage from flooding.

Flooding can happen because of carelessness as well. If you don't keep an eye on water running in a clogged tub or sink, you'll have a huge mess on your hands. When you find a flooded bathroom for any reason, turn off the water supply to your sink, toilet, or bathtub at the valve right away. Then contact our technicians at SERVPRO as soon as you can. We have the expertise and tools to deal with just about any flooding problem.

We take care of all the standing water first with truck-mounted pumps. Then, we can get into the bathroom with industrial fans and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry the area out. Repairs that are needed are made, and if the flooring is ruined, including subflooring, we take care of this as well. Special moisture meters are also used to detect any hidden moisture or mold to ensure that the affected areas are completely clear of any more damage.

Call us! We are available 24 hours a day for emergencies in the Arlington area.
