Promoting Electrical Safety Around the Office | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County

8/6/2020 (Permalink)

A wall outlet and power strip overloaded with far too many items plugged in Overloading outlets is a huge fire risk in any business, don't take the chance!

Most Wappingers Falls, Fishkill, Beacon and Poughkeepsie business owners are likely familiar with the fire codes they have to adhere to in order to make sure their business is as safe as possible, but outside of fire codes, there are still necessary fire safety steps to take.

Fire safety if something you can work on yourself and with your employees to make sure the space is as safe as possible for everyone present. Especially if your building contains an office where many electronics are in use, educating everyone on electrical safety is a great fire prevention strategy.

Electrical Fire Safety in the Workplace

As a business owner, doing your part for fire safety and educating your employees so they can do the same go hand in hand. Having your facilities regularly inspected by a licensed electrician is a good place to start, and keep an eye out for areas that could use the installation of additional outlets so you are not relying too heavily on power strips or extension cords in their place. Additionally, the majority of electrical fire safety tips involve cord management and the safe usage of electronic devices.

Here are some tips you can share with your employees to make sure they are practicing electrical safety throughout their day-to-day tasks:

- Avoid overloading outlets or power strips with several electronics at one time.

- Place all power strips in areas that are well-ventilated, in order to disperse heat.

- Never tie knots in electrical cords.

- Cables should never be placed under carpets or rugs in the workplace.

- Do not plug a power strip into another power strip.

- Make sure that grounded cords are not used with un-grounded outlets.

- If a cord or cable is frayed, halt its use and replace it immediately.

- Always unplug cords by the plug instead of tugging the cable.

- Avoid handling plugs and cables with wet hands.

- If you see smoke or smell burning, stop using electronics immediately until it is identified.

- Alert your manager to any outlets that have loose-fitting plugs.

- Do not rely on extension cords as a long-term power solution.

Why Every Business Should Have a Disaster Plan in Place | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County

8/4/2020 (Permalink)

An image of a book labeled "Business Continuity Plan" Disaster can strike at anytime, make sure you have a plan in place for your business!

Preparing your Dutchess County business for a disaster can make all the difference in how quickly you are able to reopen after an emergency occurs—or if you are able to reopen at all.

Putting a plan in place that covers your emergency protocols from beginning to end will allow you to better prepare for any situation and make sure your business can survive even the worst of situations.

While every disaster scenario will be unique, with a general plan in place you can better prepare for anything that occurs.

Considerations When Setting Up an Emergency Plan for Your Business

-Focus on prevention first. While some things like natural disasters will be out of your control, there are emergency scenarios you can prevent to some extent, including fires and some types of water damage issues. Be sure your business is up to code, that you are doing regular evacuation drills and that you have frequent seminars with your employees about workplace fire safety procedures.

-Make sure your insurance has you covered. Commercial insurance will often fall short in situations of emergency, which is why many business owners might want to consider purchasing coverage for specific scenarios such as flooding or an interruption in income.

-Be sure your records are safe. If your records are destroyed in a disaster, your recovery might become much more difficult than it needs to be. Protect your records by creating digital backups or storing physical papers in a secondary location so that way you do not lose everything if your business is damaged.

-Keep your contact information up to date and secure. Being able to contact your employees, vendors, insurance company, lessor and other parties vital to your daily operations after a disaster is essential. Be certain you have everyone’s contact info, that it is accurate and that it is stored in a safe place. This way you can get in touch with everyone easily in case of a disaster scenario to create a smart reopening plan.

If your business has been impacted by a disaster or emergency, you can count on us to help. Our team of restoration experts has extensive experience with commercial properties, and we can help you at any hour.

Disaster Tips for Small Business Owners | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County

1/10/2020 (Permalink)

An image of several pieces of paper with phrases on it emphasizing preparedness Small businesses are the most vulnerable when it comes to disasters and the downtime it takes in order to reopen.

A natural disaster is always a frightening thing, but if it is headed for your business in Fishkill, it can be even more alarming. Small businesses are especially vulnerable to natural disasters due to the downtime they can cause—when a disaster causes a business to need restoration before it can reopen, that creates a loss in revenue that can be critical.

Fortunately, planning ahead for natural disasters and how your business can recover from them can reduce the time it takes to get back up and running. For that reason, we have compiled some of the most crucial tips that small business owners should know about preparing for a natural disaster.

1. Double-Check Your Insurance
While commercial insurance policies are generally enough for day-to-day incidents that might occur, when it comes to a disaster, regular coverage may not suffice. Because every insurance plan is different, understanding your specific policy and the extra coverage options that are available to you will help you be certain you are covered for anything that comes your way.

2. Create Your Action Plan
Being able to spring into action as soon as a disaster becomes imminent is key. Weather patterns and other emergencies can happen in an instant, and official orders to evacuate often come on extremely short notice. Plan both for an evacuation scenario and one where you and your staff must remain at your business until it is declared safe so you can be doubly prepared.

3. Rehearse Drills and Prepare Staff
As you make your emergency action plan, getting your staff involved is a wise choice so that everyone is on the same page. Clue them in to the official plan and construct disaster drills so they can practice what to do in a real-life scenario. Not only will this keep everyone fully prepared at all times, but it will also lessen your business’ liability in the event of an emergency.

4. Choose a Restoration Company to Work With
One of the most critical parts of the process, choosing the restoration company you would like to work with following a disaster will be the biggest factor in how quickly you can reopen. Making sure you choose a company with a quick response time and advanced training specific to commercial incidents is important, and doing this in advance will ensure all your questions can get answered and you are able to choose without the external pressure of needing to rush.

If you need to pick a commercial restoration company that’s right for you, call us today! We can tell you all about what sets our process apart.

The Benefits of Preparing Your Business for a Disaster | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County

12/17/2019 (Permalink)

A female business owner writing a plan in a book Having a disaster plan in place for your business has huge benefits! Ask SERVPRO of Western Dutchess County how we can help!

Experiencing a natural disaster as a business owner in Dutchess County can be a major life event. There are so many questions about what to do and how to recover, with the main focus simply being to continue operations as quickly as possible.
To avoid being left stressed and uncertain after a disaster strikes, put a plan in place now for how you would handle a disaster that impacts your business. Planning ahead can reduce the damage a disaster causes, keep your staff safer and help you reopen quicker after the danger passes. Making disaster plans has big benefits for businesses. Here’s how:


Reduce the Damage a Disaster Causes to Your Business


Disasters can cause major damage to businesses even when business owners do everything
right, but a little bit of planning can reduce your losses exponentially. Making copies of essential
documents and keeping them in a secure, offsite location will ensure you do not lose any
important paperwork due to flooding, fires or other scenarios. Additionally, creating a
technology-focused disaster plan can help you protect any electronics in the workplace and
ensure you can recover all your digital files even if your main computer systems are impacted by
the disaster.


Increase the Safety of Your Workplace


Though some extremely small businesses are not required to have a written emergency plan, all
employers should communicate their plan to staff orally and consider creating a written one
even if they are not required to do so. Training employees on the procedures of a disaster, as
well as assigning people with roles and responsibilities to help you execute a safe emergency
evacuation, will increase the safety of your workplace and make sure that everyone in the
building feels prepared.


Decrease the Time It Takes to Reopen After a Disaster


Perhaps the most important reason to prepare for a workplace disaster is decreasing the time it
will take you to reopen. The Small Business Administration states that 25% of small businesses do not reopen following a disaster—if your business is your livelihood, you know just how devastating this can be. By doing what you can in advance to prevent damage and having a
plan in place for restoring your property and recovering following the disaster, your business can reopen much more quickly.


If you’re planning ahead to help protect your business from a disaster, contact us to learn more

The Flood Preparedness of Businesses | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County

10/29/2019 (Permalink)

A large staircase in a lobby of a commercial building surrounded by water from flooding Having a flood plan in place for your Dutchess County commercial building is a priceless investment of time!

For those who own businesses in Dutchess County or any county, practicing flood preparedness is a good investment of time. Though many underestimate their risk, it has been reported that all but 10% of natural disasters involve floods. Therefore, even those who do not think they would normally be at risk are wise to prepare.

Safety is the most important part of preparing for a flood, but it can also be helpful for your business continuity, too. By being prepared and preserving the right documents, you can work toward reopening much more quickly.

How Flood Preparedness Works for Businesses

Making sure your business is prepared might feel like a lot of pressure, which is why we’ve pooled some helpful tips and resources for you to access:

  • Locate your business utilizing FEMA’s Flood Map tool, which will show you your average risk and historical flooding information.
  • Take note of the list below to determine what documents would be helpful to preserve.
  • Communicate the guidelines of your official Emergency Action Plan with employees so they are educated and prepared.
  • Schedule emergency evacuation drills regularly and post maps of evacuation routes near exits.
  • Discuss your insurance coverage with your agent—many business policies require flood insurance to be an add-on.
  • Keep your emergency kit in the office fully stocked and up to date.
  • Elevate computers if possible before evacuation.

Preserving Helpful Documents

Keeping the right documents secured in an offsite location will ensure you have all the paperwork you need once the time to reopen comes. Here are some wise ones to copy:

  • An outline of every task that must occur for reopening to happen
  • Phone numbers of any third parties you should check in with—staff, vendors, etc.
  • Your insurance agent’s phone number, a copy of your policy (and flood policy, if you have it)
  • The guides to recover the backed up computer files
  • Information about any outstanding loans, leasing agreements and other bank records

SERVPRO of Western Dutchess County offers a FREE all-in-one resource to help organize and easily maintain all the important info for everyone to access at their fingertips. Call us today and ask about our Emergency Response Plan, we'll take care of it for you!

Important Winter-Ready Tips for your Dutchess County Commercial Property

10/17/2019 (Permalink)

A commercial building roof covered with ice and water Make sure your commercial property is winter ready before disaster strikes!

While we can’t rely on the weather forecast being accurate in the winter months, we do know that living in the Hudson Valley has taught us to never underestimate the power of Mother Nature. Protecting your business or commercial property in the winter months is just as important as the winter prep you do for your home.

Here are some great tips to help prepare your business for the upcoming winter and give you some piece of mind.

-Check the external areas or common areas for downed tree limbs and branches.

-Inspect your property's walkways and parking lots for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazards, icing problems, trip/fall hazards, potholes and cracks and repairs needed to keep those areas free and clear (this is a good idea all year long).

-If you have a parking lot at your building, keep it free and clear of snow and ice, keep salt handy and use it often.

-Check all handrails, stairwells and entry ways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present.

-Inspect the roof for any problems that could lead to leaks and have the gutters cleaned bi-annually.

-Eliminate any drafts with caulking or weather stripping, as gaps around windows and doors run up heating bills.

-Keep vacant areas heated on a low setting, 55 degrees is ideal and will help prevent pipes from freezing. Burst pipes can have costly repercussions.

-Don’t forget about outdoor watering systems, these need to be winterized properly as well.

-Consider a facilities manager or property management company to help keep an eye on things for you, especially if you aren’t able to be at the property often.

The best way to reduce business interruption following a disaster is to plan for it NOW.

-Ask SERVPRO of Western Dutchess County about starting an Emergency Ready Profile for your business. It’s FREE and a great resource to have at your fingertips in case of a disaster.

3 Steps to Making Your Workplace Safety Drill Work | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County

9/19/2019 (Permalink)

An active fire inside an office building Make sure you have a practiced drill set for your workplace!

If you are a manager or a business owner in Dutchess County, you understand how important it is to keep your workplace free of hazards and your employees safe from harm during their day-to-day tasks. However, have you considered what would happen should an emergency occur in the workplace? 

Because of how negatively a disaster can impact a small business, it is important to create a plan for what to do should an emergency occur. Creating a plan that accounts for multiple possibilities, gathering feedback and then using that feedback to improve are all important components to coming up with a fool-proof plan. 

Here’s how business owners can work toward creating a workplace safety drill that works: 

  1. Plan Your Drill 

In order to create a properly executed drill, it is important to plan it thoroughly and well in advance to ensure it is as effective as possible. Be sure to plan for every scenario that could put your staff in harms’ way, such as fires, storm damage, power outages or any other emergency that could be specific to your industry. Prepare for specific points such as: 

  • Determining a meeting point outside of and away from the building 
  • Designating someone to perform a headcount and ensure that everyone in the building participates 
  • How to perform any emergency shutdown procedures such as turning off machinery before exiting the building 

It may also be wise to schedule drills at various times if you have personnel who work a variety of hours so everyone is able to experience them. 

  1. Determine Where to Improve 

After performing safety drills, the most important thing to do is take note of where improvements could be made. Even things that seem small can make a large difference in an emergency scenario, such as more lighting or better signage. Solicit feedback from employees on how the drill could improve to get further ideas. 

  1. Make Changes and Repeat 

As you continue to make improvements and run drills, it is important to note how more recent drills compare with earlier ones. Tracking the improvements that are made and the results of each round is a great way to ensure that drills are as efficient as they can be, that way everyone will stay safe should a real emergency occur. 

If you’ve had an emergency occur at your business, we’re here for you 24/7! As experts in commercial restoration, we can handle fire, water or storm damage from any disaster. Give us a call today to learn more.

Going through a natural disaster and sustaining property damage is devastating for anyone, but for business owners, they are put in an especially precarious situation as their livelihood is at risk. FEMA reports that over 40% of businesses do not reopen after a disaster.

Because of the high stakes associated with proper disaster repair, it is important for business owners to work with a restoration company they trust. These are some questions to ask to ensure you are picking the right one:

1. Can They Respond Quickly?

Damage can rapidly get out of hand if left untreated, so a company that can respond quickly is a must. Get information about their emergency response procedures and hours of operation to understand what to expect.

One way SERVPRO of Western Dutchess County is able to provide a faster response time is our emergency line, which is live and staffed 24 hours a day. This allows us to quickly respond when a disaster is called in so business owners can use their time on other natural disaster recovery tasks.

2. How Do They Train Their Technicians?

Thorough and consistent training is key to ensuring the technicians’ work is of a high caliber, so potential customers should always inquire about their education and certification standards. Knowing your business is in good hands will provide peace of mind and ensure the work is done properly.

The standards set forth by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) are the most comprehensive in the industry, that is what we base our technicians’ education off of. From their initial training to e-learning and certification opportunities, we ensure they are always learning in the field.

3. What Is Their Equipment Lineup Like?

Technology has revolutionized restoration equipment, so maintaining an up-to-date fleet of equipment is vital to performing a high caliber of work. Inquire about a company’s fleet of tools and equipment so you can be sure the best and most updated technology is being used on your restoration.

We choose our own equipment based on the IICRC guidelines, which guarantees that we are utilizing the industry standard. Whether removing water damage or scrubbing the air of soot particles, we can ensure we will do the best job for your business.

If you’re in need of commercial restoration, do not hesitate to make the call so you can get your business back faster. Our trained experts are here to help 24/7—contact us today.

It's vital to have an Emergency Plan for Your Business | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County

8/9/2019 (Permalink)

Have a plan to get your business back up and running following a disaster.

Emergency preparedness for your Dutchess County business is one of the best things you can do. Having a plan in place will not only help to keep your staff safe and informed, but it will also help your business get back to normal and reopen quicker following a disaster.

An emergency plan should be thorough, easy to understand and include information to share with employees. It’s important to have all the materials you need at your fingertips in order to get your business reopened in the wake of a disaster. Here is an easy guide to making your business emergency plan:

  1. What are the Most Likely Threats?

The first thing to do to prepare your business for an emergency is to understand what types of damages you might be likely to face. If your business is in an area prone to flooding, or if you have a restaurant and are more likely to have a fire, these are factors you should take time to think on when making your plan and to be prepared for anything that could cause harm or loss.

  1. Create an Emergency Response Plan & Share it With Employees

The most beneficial aspect of a disaster plan is that every single employee should automatically know what to do when an emergency occurs. Create a clear step-by-step plan so employees are aware of where they should go for safety, where emergency access and shut-offs are for utilities, who they should check in with and what next steps are no matter the situation.

Tip: Schedule workplace emergency drills so employees can rehearse the actions they will take in the case of a real scenario.

  1. Determine How You Will Get Back to Business

Workplace emergencies can have a huge impact on a business, almost 40% can fail to reopen following a disaster. It is important to plan how you will get back to business following a disaster by creating a business recovery plan. This should cover topics such as staffing issues, data management, equipment failures, insurance specifications and what commercial restoration company to work with to get your business back up and running smoothly.

If your business has suffered any kind of damage or loss, we can help! We are fully certified in commercial restoration and can respond quickly when you call. Call SERVPRO of Western Dutchess County today to make us part of your emergency response plan!

Of all the many things that must be taken care of when running a business in Poughkeepsie, Beacon, Hopewell Junction or Fishkill, one of the most important factors to think about is emergency preparedness.

While creating and developing an emergency preparedness plan cannot stop all disasters, it can still give your business a jump-start where safety is concerned and will, at least, ensure that your employees know what to do if a disaster or emergency situation should occur.

Come Up With a Plan

Have you made it a priority to take the time to sit down and work out an emergency preparedness plan for various disaster situations? If not, now is the time to do it!

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

An emergency or disaster is just that, and 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 in place, the situation could get even more dangerous quickly.

You should make sure that safety training and familiarization of emergency preparedness plans are included in the company on-boarding 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.

Start Here

As you begin to set up an emergency plan for your business, stop and evaluate which scenarios, even the long shots, could occur. After all, it’s better to be prepared for anything and not be caught off guard.

You can find plenty of resources online to aid and guide you through this process, including Ready.gov, the American Red Cross, FEMA and the CDC.

You might also want to consider conducting a business impact analysis (BIA) to aid in predicting the potential effect 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.

Be sure that you review and practice your emergency preparedness plan with your employees once you have one completed. By reviewing and rehearsing various scenarios, you are ensuring 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 Western Dutchess County is here to help make it “Like it never even happened.” No matter the time, we're here 24/7 (845)831-3600.

When dealing with large commercial properties in Western Dutchess County....

A Desiccant Dehumidifier is a must-have for commercial properties with lots of square footage.

No matter what kind of damage your Western Dutchess County commercial building has suffered how overwhelming it might feel, here's a peek into how we handle the loss so you can go right back to business.

When you have a large loss, you break out the juggernaut to help get it dry. This mammoth machine is a Desiccant Dehumidifier.
A desiccant dehumidifier has a moisture absorbing wheel inside the unit that is made of silica gel – which is the desiccant (drying) element. Air enters the unit through an opening and travels through the silica gel wheel. When the air reaches the other side of the wheel it is dry and pushed out of the unit by a high static blower.

No matter the size of the disaster, having machines and equipment like this at our fingertips is crucial to taking care of it the right way quickly and efficiently with minimal business downtime. Call SERVPRO of Western Dutchess County for any of your commercial property cleanups.

Protecting Your Business From Fire Risks | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County

It's a good idea to make sure you have a fire plan in place for your business!

Safety for your employees and visitors is just one of the factors business owners need to consider. If you are a business owner, one risk you will need to spend some time planning for and working toward preventing is a fire.

<h4causes-of-commercial-structure-fires">Leading Causes of Commercial Structure Fires

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the leading causes of structure fires in office properties from 2007–2011 were (in order):

  1. Cooking equipment, 29% of fires
  2. Electrical distribution and lighting equipment, 12% of fires
  3. Heating equipment, 11% of fires
  4. Intentional, 10% of fires
  5. Smoking materials, 9% of fires
  6. Exposure, 4% of fires
  7. Electronic, office or entertainment equipment, 3% of fires

Of those causes, intentional, exposure, and electrical distribution and lighting equipment accounted for the most property damage with 20%, 18% and 15% respectively.

It was reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that in 2007, fires and explosions accounted for 3% of all workplace fatalities.

Looking at more recent numbers, the NFPA estimates that from 2007–2011, U.S. fire departments responded to an average of 3,340 fires in office properties per year, which resulted in an annual average of four deaths, 44 injuries and $112 million in direct property damage.

<h4your-business">Protecting Your Business

By focusing on fire risk assessment, fire prevention and staff education, there are steps you can take to protect your business and help reduce the chance of a fire breaking out.

First, make an assessment of any fire hazard risks in your facility. In some locations, your local government may have a fire marshal that can visit your establishment to help identify these risks and provide guidance on your fire prevention plan.

You’ll want to make sure that the right fire protection equipment is in place. This includes an automatic sprinkler system, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers on each floor.

Finally, you must consider the safety of your employees and visitors. By creating a fire plan and regularly reviewing it with your staff, you’ll ensure that everyone knows what to do in the case of a fire. To keep fire safety procedures fresh in everyone’s mind, conduct fire drills at least once a year, and take time to review evacuation routes and the locations of your first-aid kits.

Despite best efforts with fire prevention and safety tips, the worst could always happen at your business. If a fire has damaged your business, SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County is available to help make it "Like it never even happened." Call us, no matter when and no matter where, 845-831-3600.

The Basics of Making a Disaster Plan for Your Business | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County

1/11/2019 (Permalink)

Be able to roll with the punches by creating a natural disaster plan for your business.

With so many floods, tornadoes, wildfires, hurricanes and earthquakes in the news, Mother Nature is proving to be a force to be reckoned with. The key to being able to roll with the punches, so to speak, is to be prepared for the worst.

Preparing for worst-case scenarios involves creating a natural disaster plan for your business, which is why this blog will discuss aspects for consideration when working to design that plan.

Consider This

There are many different factors to consider when working out a disaster plan for your business. Those considerations to include are:

  1. How to protect your employees
  2. How to secure your assets
  3. How to get business up and running again

Thankfully, emergency agencies like the Red Cross, FEMA and Ready.gov have developed many helpful checklists that can identify areas that need to be included in your natural disaster preparedness plan and also areas you may have overlooked.

How to Protect Your Employees

If a disaster were to strike without warning, it is important that your human assets, employees and visitors, are protected by having a plan that lays out procedures and safety measures.

Make sure there are clearly marked evacuation routes and exits from your facility, consider installing emergency lights, have an area designated for use as a shelter, and have put together designated volunteer staff as “safety wardens” that are properly trained and ready to guide and assist with all emergency efforts.

When establishing shelter space, your first choice should be a basement or storm cellar in the event of tornadoes or other high-wind situations. If that type of space is not available, find a small interior room on the lowest level of the building, such as a closet or interior hallway.

Asset Protection in Disaster Plans

For businesses located in brick and mortar buildings, there is still the necessity to make mindful choices about protecting the assets inside that building. Your business is at risk for losing thousands of dollars in merchandise and equipment when a natural disaster strikes.

Always be sure that there is a detailed and complete up-to-date inventory of these items, and, if possible, take photographs as they will be helpful if insurance claims are made. If your assets are based on a computer server, take the steps necessary to ensure that the backup system operates correctly and the storage system cannot be damaged.

If you own the building your business is in, talk with a contractor to uncover areas that may need structural improvement. The contractor can suggest possible safety upgrades and advise on areas that may not hold up in certain weather situations.

Ways to Get Back in Business Quickly

When a natural disaster does occur and your business location sustains damage, it is very likely that your business will have to be closed due to that damage and while repairs are being made. Every day you remain closed is another day of lost profits, so it is wise move to have a “rainy day” fund set aside to help with additional costs that your insurer may not cover.

Have a list of contractors available for you to call on that would be available for repairs and construction concerns, and know which cleanup and restoration service company that will be available to quickly respond to your emergency situation.

With SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County, you can count on us to get to the disaster faster and make it "Like it never even happened." Our training and expertise have prepared us to help with water damage, storm damage, fire damage and mold remediation quickly and effectively.

Knowing what to do when disaster strikes your business is of the utmost importance. When it comes to the cleanup and restoration aspects, depend on SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County to be there for you. Call us no matter the emergency, 24/7: 845-831-3600.

Have a business in Western Dutchess County? Here's some important reasons to have a Fire Detection System in your building.

10/30/2018 (Permalink)

An important part of fire protection is detection.

A fire may happen anytime, anywhere – despite your best efforts to prevent one. Protecting lives and minimizing damage to property in the event of a fire are critical to the ongoing operations of your business.  

An important component of fire protection is detection – the ability to detect fire in its very early stages. Detection systems that provide early warning of fire are a key component of a property protection program. They also can play an important role in your life safety evacuation efforts.

The two most common choices for fire detection systems are smoke detectors and heat detectors. Which to use depends on a number of factors, including the occupancy being monitored and perhaps most importantly, your objectives (life safety & evacuation, or protection of property).

Smoke Detectors — Early Warning — Life Safety First!

Smoke detectors are best in areas where early detection and warning of a fire is critical to the preservation of life. They are an important part of a building’s life safety program. For life safety considerations, the requirements for smoke detection are covered in the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code.

Smoke detectors are also used where early detection and warning of a fire is critical to help minimize property damage and protect highly sensitive optics, electronic equipment, equipment in computer rooms and other equipment that are highly susceptible to damage from the byproducts of fire or combustion.

Heat Detectors — Early Warning — Particulate Environments

While smoke detectors may be the best choice in some fire protection applications, heat detectors could be a better choice for early warning in environments with too many airborne particulates due to excessive steam, moisture, dust or humidity, such as parking garages and truck docks. Smoke detectors in these environments may be prone to cause unwanted alarms. Heat detectors are generally not considered early warning systems for life safety evacuation.

If you have an automatic sprinkler system installed throughout your facility, it can help minimize the severity of a fire and also serve as a heat detection notification system. As such, it can help facilitate a more rapid response by you and the fire department. For the system to adequately respond as a heat detection and notification system, the sprinkler water flow should be monitored 24/7 and the system must remain in operating service (e.g., control valves open, control panel continuously energized).

Sounding the Alarm: Notification is Key

There is a difference between an individual smoke or heat detector, and a detection system. A properly arranged, monitored and maintained detection system has the major advantage in its ability to provide notification to building occupants and emergency responders in the earliest stages of a fire.

Detection systems should be arranged to sound an alarm throughout the building. They also should be connected to a 24/7 monitoring service where notification to the fire department will be prompt.

Whatever type of detection system you choose it should be installed and maintained in accordance with NFPA 72 National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code.

Detection Systems and Beyond

As important as smoke and heat detectors are, detection is not a substitute for fire prevention and suppression, particularly when the combustibility of property – construction and contents – is significant.

Smoke and heat detectors do nothing to prevent or extinguish a fire. They are simply detectors designed to:

  • Detect an abnormal condition.
  • Sound an alarm to provide notification of a fire emergency.
  • Facilitate rapid evacuation of building occupants, and;
  • Signal emergency personnel to respond to a fire.

A complete fire risk management system should include both fire detection and suppression systems. The right fire suppression system is critical for fire safety preparedness! Learn more about fire suppression systems.

Helpful tips for preparing your Dutchess County business for Winter Weather

10/23/2018 (Permalink)

This is the last sign you want your clients to see at your business. Protect your investment!

Living in the Hudson Valley has taught us to never underestimate the power of Mother Nature. Most of us remember one horrible winter storm after another or deep freezes lasting for weeks on end. 

Protecting your business in the winter months is as vital as your home. Here are some great tips to help prepare your business for the upcoming winter and give you some piece of mind.

-Check your commercial property for downed tree limbs and branches. Weather such as wind, rain, ice and snow, can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property and potentially cause personal injuries.

-Inspect your property's walkways and parking lots for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazards, trip/fall hazards, potholes and cracks and repairs needed to keep those areas free and clear (this is a good idea all year long).

-Inspect all handrails, stairwells and entry ways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present.

The best way to reduce business interruption following a disaster is to plan for it NOW.

-Ask SERVPRO of Western Dutchess County about starting an Emergency Ready Profile for your business. Call us today at 845-361-3600.
