 “What’s different about commercial buildings?” 

Identifying a good commercial restoration company like SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties is vital to the continued operation of a business or facility.

The primary purpose of a residential home is to accommodate personal living space.  Commercial structures such as: warehouses, churches, hotels, retail stores, military bases, libraries, government facilities, manufacturing plants, hospitals, clinics, convention centers, apartment complexes, theatres, restaurants, distribution centers, schools / universities, office spaces, airports, and sports complexes offer a multitude of additional functions.

Because SERVPRO is a national restoration provider specializing in commercial large-loss projects we have at our disposal the ability to immediately scale and call to action a massive array of personnel, equipment and resources to meet the need of any commercial structure.

Commercial facilities, if they are greatly impacted by damage, require more time for scoping, planning, and estimating including additional management, labor, equipment and supplies.  Commercial restoration typically requires more layers of planning than typical home property damage restoration projects.  Multiple decision-making individuals are involved such as property owner, tenant, property manager, insurance carrier or building consultant.  Businesses need to get back in business fast.  Many have “business continuation” or “business interruption insurance” and the insurance carrier, of course, is motivated to get the job done quickly to keep the payout of BI coverage as low as possible.

Depending on the level of damage public access will be limited and the role of security increases to protect the commercial structure, clean-up, inventory, property and equipment.  Also, many facilities have leased or rented equipment requiring authorization before moving or servicing.   Additionally, damage to the property presents safety hazards.  These could be opened hazmat or biohazard containers, chemicals, and exposed electrical and gas connections.  Restoration work could require equipment not usually associated with residential repair such as forklifts and scaffolding and multi-story lift machinery.  Commercial buildings are usually outfitted with industrial HVAC units, high voltage electrical components and including computer networks, ethernet cable, lithium battery back up units and server racks.

As a city of Redding and Shasta County business owner and commercial point-of-contact, keep SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity and Greater Tehama Counties front of mind for the unexpected disaster.  We are available at any hour of the day or night every day of the year.

Commercial Active Shooter and Commercial Business Crime Scene Clean Up SERVPRO - Active Shooter Commercial Crime Scene Clean Up - Prepare Your Emergency Plan Before It Happens

Active Shooter incidents at highschools and businesses, unfortunately, are becoming commonplace. 

Commercial buildings, churches and schools, dealing with the tragic human toll, must maintain business continuity.  Reopening doors, rebuilding locations and restoring property loss include, as hard as it may be to discuss, the crime scene clean up and sanitizing of interior and exterior structures - floors, walls and ceiling.

Once law enforcement has completed crime scene operations the physical location is handed back to the business organization. Employees return to the workplace environment potentially reliving traumatic events.  A business needs to bring in a certified disaster restoration and crime scene clean up company such as SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties, instead of using internal custodial or janitorial staff who may have witnessed the aftermath they would be handling in their commercial facility. 

Redding, California’s Fire Chief Gerry Gray recently provided information to Shasta County business owners and residents discussing police, fire and public safety departments response and preparations.  You can read his message here.  >>   Active Shooter Response    SERVPRO encourages local commercial and educational facilities, as part of an active shooter emergency response plan, to coordinate with a highly rated local disaster restoration provider to better-coordinate an effective and efficient “back to business” post-shooting game plan.  Additionally,  free local Active Shooter training in Redding and Shasta County is available.

FEMA's How to Prepare for an Active Shooter Incident is an excellent resource.  Also look at Ready.gov's Active Shooter Checklist.

We recognize the tragic consequences of an active shooter event in a crowded school or workplace. Biohazard cleaning is only one component of the process.  Fire and water damage to commercial spaces, merchandise and carpets speaks to the need for business owners to pre-plan active shooter disaster clean up response.  Especially important for businesses is to contact us for your free Emergency Readiness Plan; an onsite and detailed layout of your facility including key notes and photos of utility shut-offs and emergency contacts.

SERVPRO and California Commercial Business Insurance

2/7/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial SERVPRO and California Commercial Business Insurance SERVPRO understands business owners and commercial insurance.

Commercial insurance will be one of the most important financial investments you, as a business owner, will make in the life of your company.

Property damage, business interruption, theft, liability and worker injury all demand coverage.  This is exactly why SERVPRO as a first-responder working hand-in-hand with insurance brokers, agents and adjusters at the forefront of an unforeseen business disaster can make the difference between going out of business after a severe loss or recovering with minimal business interruption and financial impairment to your company's operations.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), more than 40% of businesses never reopen after a disaster, and for those that do, only 29% were still operating after two years.

This is why is is so crucial to develop and utilize  SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile for your business to minimize interruption with an immediate plan of action.  

Commercial Insurance Broker-Agent

One of the first steps in purchasing small business insurance is to contact a licensed insurance broker-agent who specializes in commercial coverages. Also building a working relationship with SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties (530) 222-0200 can be as crucial to your business plan as getting professional advice from an accountant, banker, human resources analyst, payroll specialist, lawyer, or a trusted business mentor.

Professional broker-agent and restoration provider associations can assist you in your search for a licensed commercial insurance broker-agent. Many already are aware of SERVPRO’s reputation for excellence in fire, water and mold damages to commercial property and rely on our fast response and mitigation expertise to reduce client costs and claims. The Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of California (IIABCAL) and the Western Insurance Agents Association (WIAA Group) are recommended professional associations. Also, when conducting your broker-agent search, it is important to verify the broker-agent's insurance license with the California Department of Insurance (CDI).

Commercial property insurance coverage and endorsements can include the following:

Builder's Risk - Covering a new building or structure under construction or an existing structure undergoing additions, alterations, or repairs.

Legal Liability or Fire Legal Liability - Covers your legal liability for loss or damage to real and personal property of others as the result of your negligent acts and/or omissions.

Glass - Basic specified perils for glass coverage include any resulting damage to other property from broken glass due to vandalism and also vandalism to glass building blocks.

Casualty Insurance - provides coverage primarily for the liability exposure of an individual, business or organization. Liability from the negligent acts and omissions of an individual, business or organization that causes bodily injury and/or property damage to a third party is the subject of casualty insurance coverage.

What Kind of Insurance Do I Need to Purchase for My Business?

SERVPRO knows that businesses carry risks.  Your broker-agent will discuss business operations and the types of exposures (the possibility of loss). 

Causes of loss are divided into two main categories: specified perils and open perils.

Specified Perils are a list of specific disasters such as fire, explosion, windstorm, vandalism, et cetera.

Open Perils covers all losses unless specifically excluded. Earth movement (including earthquake) and flood are two common perils that are typically excluded under open perils coverage.  Look at our blog post Flood Water Damage Insurance Regulations for Commercial and Residential Property Owners for more information.

Commercial claims are complex and the insurance company and it’s preferred restoration provider SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties must assess the damage and mitigate quickly to lessen loss especially when high dollar amounts are at stake. Business owners know that claims loss relates to the rating formula and premium costs.  SERVPRO, the business owner and the insurance company are together partners the mission being to keep claim costs and thus premiums low.

Commercial Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) and Commercial Buildings Loss Potential SERVPRO Commercial Damage Restoration WATER | FIRE | STORM | MOLD 530-222-0200

How To Understand Commercial Property Loss

Property damage loss ratings are established to help insurance adjusters, restoration companies and real estate agents, investors and brokers understand the loss potential of a commercial building or facility’s risk and return. 

Common reasons for commercial loss insurance claims would include flood, water and mold.  Additionally, storm, hail and wind damage, vandalism, theft, among other factors, lead to business interruption, equipment damage (including electronic data) and thus loss of business income and property assets.

The ratings are determined based on age of the building, location, amenities, current tenants and rent pricing. 

Newer building are considered “Class A”.  These comprise newer construction, excellent maintenance and presentation. 

The majority of commercial buildings fall into “Class B”. Generally older construction although well maintained.  Along with some restoration and remodeling work they are considered a value-added property.

“Class C” commercial is the lowest tier with significantly older buildings in the least desirable locations perhaps needing extensive renovation.  Business and tenant occupancy in these properties also tend to be lower.

Following this guide, SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties recognizes that most loss and thus need for fire and water damage restoration services, in fact, occur beginning at “Class C”. 

SERVPRO’s Emergency READY Profile® (ERP) is a free value-added addition we provide to every level of a commercial property owner’s overall contingency plan.  However, where property loss is considered greater in “Class B and C” the ERP takes on special significance by outlining in great detail shut-off valve locations, priority response areas and first-responder contact information clearly setting an immediate plan of action in place with a local SERVPRO Franchise Professional as their disaster mitigation and restoration provider “Ready for whatever happens”.

Evaluating the components of a loss are fact-intensive with much of commercial coverage determined by the period of business interruption and the length of restoration.  Pre-loss mitigation plans, such as SERVPRO’s Emergency Ready Plan mentioned above, identify and coordinate external professional resources, including an emergency restoration company capable of responding within hours of a loss at all loss sites. Commercial organizations which have prior agreements with trusted restoration partners in place are first in line for assistance and, consequently, among the first to re-establish operations and limit their business-interruption losses.

Gas shut-off procedures vary from home to home. Contact your local gas company for information on the safest way to shut off gas supply to your home according to your home’s gas meter configuration.

Once you learn the gas shut-off procedure, practice it with the whole family, but make sure to not actually turn off the gas when practicing.

If you smell gas near a gas pipe or gas-fueled appliance, or if the CO detector goes off, open a window immediately and get everyone out of the house as fast as possible. Turn off the gas supply and call the gas company soon after.

Once you turn off the gas, never attempt to turn it back on yourself. Only a qualified professional must turn your gas supply back on. 

Electricity

After a disaster or if you notice electrical damage in your home, turn off electricity immediately to prevent fires and electrical shocks.

First, locate the main circuit box that’s usually mounted on a wall. In many houses, the circuit box is located in the basement, so make sure to bring a flashlight.

Inside the panel, you will see multiple switches, including the main switch that shuts off all electricity in your home.

For safety purposes, always shut off individual switches before shutting off the main switch.

Water

After a disaster, your water supply may get polluted due to cracked lines, so it’s important to shut it off until authorities say it’s safe to turn the water back on.

Locate the shut-off valve for the main water line of your home, which can be found in one of these areas:

  • on a wall near the front of the house
  • near the water heater
  • in the garage
  • buried in the ground outside, near the street, in a covered box
  • Label the shut-off valve so you can easily find it in the future.
  • Be sure that the valve completely closes when you turn it clockwise. If the valve doesn’t completely close, it may be rusted or damaged. In this case, have it replaced by a qualified technician.

Whether you need professional cleaning to make your business shine, or emergency water restoration services, SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties has the training and expertise to help make it “Like it never even happened."

Understanding Smoke Damage

Commercial Understanding Smoke Damage The hidden factors of fire and smoke damage.

Smoke Damage:  Seen and Unseen

There are two types of smoke damage after a fire, visible soot and invisible odor.

All fires are different, making it difficult to gauge the exact type of damage that will occur. However, SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties will properly clean the contents of your home to ensure complete odor removal and the saving of seemingly-salvageable items.

          In most fire situations, there are three restoration alternatives, cleaning, resurfacing, and replacing.

          Cleaning is the removal of soot and foreign matters which are not an original part of the material itself. Cleaning is usually the quickest process and the preferred option for the insurance company and homeowner(s).

          Resurfacing is the process of taking a damaged piece of property or existing fixture in the home and redoing the surface of it to make it appear new. For example, if a house is not severely damaged by fire or smoke, but the paint on the walls gets damaged, the contractor can re-paint the walls. The contractor can also provide content refinishing as well as the reupholstering of furniture.

Resurfacing is a good option when the homeowner considers certain things as sentimental and/or irreplaceable. Resurfacing can be more costly than cleaning, yet less expensive than replacement. Insurance companies will also recommend this alternative to homeowners.

Replacement is used when items in the home are destroyed or are beyond economical repair. Replacement is usually the costliest option because the unsalvageable items are being replaced with something new.

When unexpected disaster strikes,  call us 24/7 SERVPRO® of North Shasta, Trinity and Tehama Counties to make it “Like it never even happened.” 530-222-0200. #SERVPRONorthShasta #SERVPRONorthShasta23Years #DISASTER #CaliforniaRealEstate #LikeItNeverEvenHappened #HereToHelp #ReBuildingStories
