How to Set Up a Business for Storm Survival

5/24/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Survival

With storm season just around the corner, many business owners recognize the importance of commercial storm preparation. Storm survival takes some planning and research, but when done correctly may save your company thousand of dollars and hours of time in the long-run. After-storm recovery often includes water removal, tear out of wet goods and more. Prepare for the unexpected to increase your odds for storm survival. 

Mental Preparation 

First and foremost, for your company to successfully withstand an oncoming storm, you must be mentally ready. Each employee must know their role if a storm strikes as well as what action they should take. In order to be mentally ready for ugly weather conditions that could come your way, you should pre-meditate on the following ideas:

  • Assess your biggest assets including employees, technology, inventory etc. 
  • Draw-up an evacuation plan
  • Appoint emergency response leaders

Physical Preparation 


When addressing the structural protection of your business site, consider common weather conditions that occur in the North Lawrenceville, area. A post-storm scene may present anything from heavy wind destruction to flooding and water damage. While a flash flood might lead to the post-flood tear out of carpeting or upholstery, you may be able to prevent some losses with simple preparation. 

It is a good practice to store your documents in a water-proof safe and back-up digital files regularly. Keep valuables and other important goods at higher levels to avoid rising water levels. Stay informed about weather conditions in your region. Before the storms come, be prepared by signing-up for local weather alerts. 

After the Storm 

If evacuation has taken place, stay safe and listen to local authorities to know when you can return to your commercial facility. You may be anxious to start the clean-up process, but risking personal safety is never worth the cost. 

While a storm restoration specialist can help you with the tear out and drying of your workplace after a storm, nothing can replace the good that can come from having a solid plan in place beforehand. Follow these simple tips to get your business storm-ready.

Is Your Business Ready for Any Potential Disaster Situation? | SERVPRO® of North Lawrenceville

5/10/2019 (Permalink)

How would your business and your employees survive an emergency or natural disaster? This is just one of the multitude of things that must be taken care of when running a business, but it is one of the most important factors to think about—emergency preparedness.

This process will not stop all disasters from potentially happening, but it can still give you a head start for safety’s sake, and at least, make sure that your employees know what to do if a disaster or emergency situation should occur.

Creating Your Plan

Is this something you have already done? If not, how about taking the time to sit down and work out an emergency preparedness plan for various disaster situations?

There are numerous emergencies your business should have a preparedness plan in place for, including:

  • Fire
  • Severe weather, including thunderstorms and winter storms
  • Other natural hazards like floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes
  • Human-caused hazards, including accidents or acts of violence
  • Technology-related issues like power outages and equipment failure

It doesn’t matter if it’s a man-made incident or one stemming from nature, if there is no emergency plan for your business, the emergency could get even more stressful quickly.

You should make sure to include safety training and familiarization of emergency preparedness plans in your company onboarding process, team-building activities and continuing education opportunities. By helping employees familiarize themselves with proper safety protocol and emergency procedures, you’re not only giving them the tools to protect themselves, but you are also setting them up to help protect guests/visitors and the business itself.

Where to Start

So, where should you start when beginning to set up an emergency plan for your business? Start by evaluating which scenarios are most likely to occur—and even those that are a longshot but could still happen. After all, it’s better to prepare for all the worst-case scenarios and not be caught off guard.

There are plenty of online resources to help guide you through this process, including Ready.gov, the American Red Cross, FEMA and the CDC.

Conduct a business impact analysis (BIA), which aids in the prediction of the potential effects a disaster may have on your business. This would include lost or delayed sales and income, increased expenses from repairs, and delayed implementation of business plans. Don’t forget to make sure a crisis communications plan is in place, too.

After you have completed an emergency preparedness plan, don’t stop there. Be sure to go over it and practice with employees. By reviewing and rehearsing various scenarios, it will help ensure the process remains fresh in their minds and can help employees feel more empowered.

Disaster can strike when you least expect it, but by being prepared and having a plan in place, your business will be better suited to handle whatever Mother Nature has in store. If the worst should happen and your business is damaged, know that SERVPRO® of North Lawrenceville is here to help make it “Like it never even happened.”

Springtime Means an Increased Chance for Severe Weather | SERVPRO® of North Lawrenceville

4/24/2019 (Permalink)

Spring is here, and while it’s always a welcome season, it can also come with some increased weather threats. Be sure that you’re prepared for whatever Mother Nature may decide to throw our way by reviewing these tips.

Increased Threats of Severe Weather and Spring

With the arrival of spring comes longer days and more sunshine. It can also bring unpredictable weather, often severe, throughout the country. It’s a time of year where the weather may change at moment’s notice.

Unstable temperatures cause changes in the weather, and temperatures can go from warm to cold in a matter of hours, resulting in extreme weather.

Thunderstorms become more common during spring and are the main cause of severe weather. They can occur whenever warm, moist air collides with cool, dry air, which is most common in the spring and summer.

Severe thunderstorms were the most common cause of natural catastrophe losses in the U.S. for 2017 and produced some of the costliest results. Out of 50 events, there were 85 fatalities and an estimated total of $25.4 billion in overall losses.

Storms of these type can cause flooding, high winds and even tornadoes if the conditions are right. It has been found that in modern history, 10% of all violent tornadoes have occurred in March, with April, May and June taking the top spots at 30%, 24% and 15% respectively.

Preparing for Severe Weather

At this point in weather predictions, we may not be able to predict the weather with 100% accuracy, but fortunately, forecasters have the tools available to at least predict the possibility for severe weather. Advanced warnings, along with the right preparation, can greatly improve overall safety for your family.

Take a look at some of the things you can do to prepare your home for the chance of severe weather:

  1. Clear out your home’s gutters, drains and downspouts.
  2. Trim trees of precarious limbs or branches that could break off in a storm.
  3. Secure or store outdoor belongings if severe weather is in the forecast.

Having an emergency kit on hand is always advised. These kits should include the following:

  • Battery-operated flashlight and NOAA weather radio, with extra batteries for both
  • Emergency evacuation or shelter plans
  • Important personal info, like telephone numbers of neighbors, family and friends, insurance and property info, numbers for the utility companies, and medical info
  • A first-aid kit with things like non-latex gloves, adhesive bandages, tweezers, sterile gauze pads, aspirin packets, adhesive cloth tape and scissors
  • 3–5 day supply of bottled water and nonperishable food
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Blankets or sleeping bag

Despite its unpredictability, there is one thing that always remains true of the spring weather season: It always happens. If your home or business is damaged in a storm, you can depend on SERVPRO® of North Lawrenceville to get the cleanup and restoration process started fast.

 

Tips to Keep Your Family Safe During Tornado Season | SERVPRO® of North Lawrenceville

4/24/2019 (Permalink)

We all know that the beautiful springtime weather we are enjoying can also be unpredictable. It’s always wise to be prepared for the chance of severe thunderstorms that lead to the perfect conditions for a tornado touchdown.

April and May are the traditional months for having the highest occurrences of tornadoes at 30% and 24% respectively, which means we are currently in that tornado season throughout the United States. Included in this blog are some tips and information on tornadoes that can help keep your family prepared for the worst possible scenario.

The Right Conditions for a Tornado

There are roughly 1,200 tornadoes that occur in the U.S. each year, and they come from those spring thunderstorms, especially those known as “supercells.”

A tornado starts to take shape when changes in wind speed and direction create a horizontal spinning effect within a storm cell. This is then tipped vertical by rising air moving up through the thunderclouds.

As the tornado gets started, its signature funnel cloud is transparent until water droplets from the storm’s moist air condense or it picks up dust and debris where it then becomes visible.

A typical tornado can grow to be 660 feet wide and will move at 10 to 20 miles per hour, although larger and faster tornadoes have been observed. Hail and intense winds of over 200 mph can accompany tornadoes.

Tornadoes usually occur in the late afternoon in the spring and summertime, but it is good to remember that they can occur anytime and anywhere.

What to Do During a Tornado Warning

If you don’t understand the difference between a tornado watch and tornado warning, take the time to learn. Basically, a watch is issued when the conditions are favorable for tornadoes, while a warning is issued when a tornado has been reported by spotters or indicated by radar.

If there has been a tornado warning issued for your area, immediately take action and find safe shelter, especially if you are in the path of the tornado.

Shelter options include: - Underground options like a basement or storm shelter. - The lowest part of your home, in an area that is away from outside walls, doors and windows. Interior closets and bathrooms can be ideal options. - If you are outside, try to get to a sturdy building. Mobile homes and trailers are not a safe option. - If on the road and no building access is available, do not get under an overpass or bridge. Instead, find a low, flat location and use your arms to protect your head and neck.

Stock your tornado shelter at home with flashlights, a battery-powered weather radio and extra batteries.

If a tornado is on the ground and you are caught out on the road during a tornado, DO NOT try to outrun it. Also, when you are taking shelter in your home, you can provide additional cover by using furniture items like couch cushions, mattresses or blankets to help keep your head and neck covered.

Tornadoes can be devastating to the areas they touch down in. While meteorologists and weather services can provide some advanced warning to potential threats, tornadoes can still occur with little to no warning at all.

If your home or business has been damaged by a tornado, know that SERVPRO® of North Lawrenceville is ready and waiting to jump into action and get cleanup and restoration of your property underway.

Smoke Damage

3/1/2019 (Permalink)

We all have fond memories of our youth. Many of them center around camping with family and friends. Sitting around the campfire, sharing stories and memories, roasting marshmallows or making smores and trying to gleefully stay away from the smoke.

Unfortunately, the memories of "what smoke"  can do and how it invades our livings areas, impacts our clothing or electronics is often forgotten no matter how small or large. Smoke damage while often limited in sight and forgotten about can result in significant damage if left untreated.

Impacts of Water Losses

2/22/2019 (Permalink)

Accidents occur, it is part of life. When water accidents happen, be it from an overflowing sink or bathtub, just cleaning up the water is not enough. Usually it is the water you don't see that causes the problem and creates a larger headache in the future.

While mitigating surface water is imperative and prevents more extensive damage, those water intrusions can find there way to cracks in floors, ceiling and walls and to the lowest point of your home. It is this water, searching for the low point that if not addressed, can result in greater damage.

No loss is to small for SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville at 678-376-5515 immediately. Our trained professionals will mitigate the situation quickly and prevent further damage.

Freezing Temps

1/23/2019 (Permalink)

Depending on where you reside, frozen temperatures can be a common occurrence or an infrequent event. What is common however, is the impact homeowners experience when broken pipes  result in a flooded residence and the adverse impact it can have.

Fortunately, there are some simple steps that can be taken to limit potential damages. The first is to leave water running (both hot and cold) in one of your inside rooms. The amount of water left "on" is minimal and should only amount to a trickle. Other housekeeping items to complete include insuring outside water lines (such as outside faucets, in ground sprinkler systems, etc.) should be drained and turned off.  Lastly, any pipes that are exposed should be insulated (or re-insulated) to be protected. Additionally, move any plants "inside" along with pets to prevent harm.

Finally, keep the number to SERVPRO handy (678 376-5515) in case something does go wrong. Remember we are here to insure it looks like "IT NEVER EVEN HAPPENED".

Winter in Lawrenceville

10/8/2018 (Permalink)

Its almost that time of year again. The leaves are about to start changing. The weather will start cooling down. Its that very same cool weather that SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville wants you to be ready for.

When the weather begins to cool down, you need to start watching out for pipes bursting within the home. If you have a property that is vacant, it may be a good idea to maintain some form of heat during the cooler winter months to prevent any issues from arising.

Conditions In Lawrenceville Might Be Right For Mold

10/8/2018 (Permalink)

It’s estimated that more than 1 million types of mold exist, yet less than 10 percent have actually been named. This means mold is very common in both indoor and outdoor environments. While mold and humans can sometimes co-exist without issue, there are certain species of mold that can cause health effects for some people.

If the right conditions exist, mold will grow.  Those conditions include:

  • Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.   
  • Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
  • Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.

Mold growth can occur in any home, so it’s important to keep an eye out for situations that might promote mold activity. Roof/chimney leaks, wet basements, or condensation from ducts that dampen surrounding insulation are just a few examples of issues that make a house a prime target for mold growth.

If you suspect mold in your home, call SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville to assess the situation. We have the knowledge, tools and track record to effectively remediate mold in your home or business.

If you suspect mold, call us today at 678-376-5515

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville for mold remediation services.

Unseen Effects of Water Damage

10/8/2018 (Permalink)

Accidents happen all of the time, whether it be from an overflowing sink, bathtub, or toilet, you get up the water and you think you're in the clear. Its the water that you don't see that can cause issues for you down the line.

Removing surface water can help prevent more extensive damage. However, water intrusions can invade floors, ceilings, and walls to find the lowest point in your home. The standing water searches for any pinholes or cracks in the floors and walls while traveling downward. This allows water to get into the interior of the home, and if not addressed, could cause further damage.

Even if the loss appears small in the beginning, call SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville, 678-376-5515, as soon as you've had a water loss. This will allow our trained professionals to mitigate the situation and prevent further damage from occurring. 

Water Heater Maintenance Tips

10/8/2018 (Permalink)

Your water heater is probably one appliance within your home that you don't pay a lot of attention to, at least until you're taking a shower and there is no hot water. SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville has some tips to keep you from taking an ice bath.

  • Before doing any maintenance on your water heater, shut off the power at the service panel
  • Once every three months, drain one gallon of water from the tank. If you have hard water, do this every month to reduce sediment collecting in the bottom of the tank.
  • Once every two years, have your water heater inspected by a service technician.

SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville encourages you to always maintain your household appliances. Don't wait until its too late and a problem arises.

Thanksgiving Reminder

11/20/2017 (Permalink)

Its the time of year where people like to cook those delicious fried Thanksgiving turkeys. SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville would just like to provide you with a friendly reminder. 

When cooking your turkey in a deep fryer, please remember to do so outside. This is due to the moisture mixing with the oils causing popping, and it could potentially boil over and this could cause not only a mess, but a fire could happen as well. So for everyone's safety, please do not cook these inside but outside, and make sure to keep it supervised just in case it does do this.

Please enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday safely. Don't let it be ruined by a turkey fryer mishap.

Happy Thanksgiving from SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville.

Lawrenceville Residents: Follow These Mold Safety Tips If You Suspect Mold

9/21/2016 (Permalink)

If you see visible mold, do not disturb it. You can inadvertently spread the mold infestation throughout your home. When mold is disturbed, the mold can release microscopic mold spores which become airborne and can circulate inside your home.

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.

Does your Lawrenceville Home Have a Mold Problem?

9/21/2016 (Permalink)

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Lawrenceville Smoke and Soot Cleanup

5/2/2016 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  


Smoke and soot facts:



  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.

  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.

  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.


Different Types of Smoke


There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:


Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber



  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.


Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood



  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.


Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire



  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 


Our Fire Damage Restoration Services


Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Springtime Tips for Homeowners

3/21/2016 (Permalink)

The weather is warming up and the spring rains are here which means now is a good time to get out there and give your home the maintenance it missed during those cold winter months. Following these few tips could save yourself a lot of problems down the line.



  • Check your roof for any cracks or damage. This will help prevent leaking into the upper floors of your home.

  • Clean and check your gutters. When gutters are clogged and not allowing water to drain properly it could be coming back into your basement or crawl space.

  • If your home has a chimney have it cleaned and examined for damage.


 If these problems are left to sit your home could be at risk for water damage and potentially mold damage if left unchecked. This could lead to very expensive repairs to both the interior and exterior of your home.  SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville recommends keeping up with your household maintenance before the springtime showers begin.

2/12/2016 (Permalink)

"Mold Removal" vs. Remediation

12/30/2014 (Permalink)

Signs of Mold? Call Today (678) 376-5515

Since microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors, removing all mold from a home or business is impossible. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy.


A qualified restoration company understands the science behind mold and mold growth. SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville technicians have the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business. Mold remediation focuses on getting mold levels back to normal, natural levels.


Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same.



  • Step 1: Emergency Contact (678)376-5515

  • Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

  • Step 3: Mold Containment

  • Step 4: Air Filtration

  • Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

  • Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Belongings

  • Step 7: Restoration



When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:



  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.

  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.

  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants and have the potential to cause other health effects. 

  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.

  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.

  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.


When in doubt, Call SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville (678) 376-5515. We are here for you 24/7!
