WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU COMPLETED THESE FIRE PREVENTION TASKS FOR YOUR BUSINESS?

You’ve heard all of the preventative steps, you’ve prepped your employees, and your building is up to code. However, the easiest prevention methods are usually the most overlooked. Inspect these things today and be sure to set reminders accordingly:

  • Smoke Detectors. Safety experts say that you should check these at least once a month and replace the batteries once a year, or as needed.
  • Fire Extinguishers. See the directions on your fire extinguisher to see when it expires and who you can call to replace your extinguishers. Extinguishers can last anywhere from five to fifteen years. Also, depending on your fire marshal’s standards, you may have to have your extinguisher certified.
  • Fire Exits and Exit Signs. Can guests clearly see exit signs? Can they easily get to them? Consider having a fire drill to ensure guests and employees can easily get out of the building in the event of an emergency. Practice regularly.
  • See any State or Local Guidelines. There are some local and state guidelines that businesses have to follow to stay up to code. Take a minute to read up on these laws or talk to your local fire marshal to learn about the guidelines.

Keeping your business, employees, and guests safe is important. Just by taking the time to make sure the basics of fire safety are taken care of, you can protect your investment.

  • First and foremost, ensure that all the electrical wiring and system is in check and properly handled to avoid any short-circuiting or sparking.
  • Next, make sure that all gas connections, outlets, and stoves are properly shut at the end of every usage, be it at home or at your restaurant.
  • Keep a safe distance between the cooking fire and inflammable materials such fabrics, wood, paper, etc.
  • Remind everyone at home or at your business place to cap any and all unsupervised flames when not in use.
  • Do not let anyone smoke near inflammable materials, and if it is absolutely unavoidable, designate a safe area of smoking.
  • Switch off any and all unused electrical plugs and outlets so as to avoid any power surges or sparking.
  • Do not keep matches, lighters, flints, fuel, etc. within reach of children. Always lock it up within a safe box.
  • Always check the electrical requirements of any appliance, machinery, equipment, etc. before plugging it in. Use necessary safety precautions.
  • Do not let water, electricity and fire mix up anywhere within your residential property or commercial setting.
  • When indulging in cooking, make sure that you use cork or wooden mats so as to avoid placing hot pans or pots directly onto fabric.

Foxboro restaurant calls for an emergency commercial cleaning.

Commercial Foxboro restaurant calls for an emergency commercial cleaning. SERVPRO of Taunton/Mansfield is here to help when you need us the most! We specialize in emergency services to get your business back up and running.

Sometimes the property damage isn’t your fault!

Most of the time property damage is caused when someone's  plumbing pipes break or appliances malfunction within your own space. However, this isn't always the case as one Foxboro restaurant owner found out the hard way. Over the weekend, he was called to come down to his restaurant immediately because the fire alarms were going off in his unit.

At first, he was relieved when he got the news that there was no fire damage at his restaurant! As a matter of fact, his unit seemed perfectly fine, or so he thought. Once the fire department inspected all the units they confirmed no fire had occurred.

Instead, they noted that workers next door were jackhammering the concrete floors to install new plumbing and had caused concrete dust to fill the air in the units setting off all the alarms in the complex.

Unfortunately, the inspector had to deliver the bad news to the restaurant owner that his unit too was completely affected by the concrete dust. He told the owner that his unit would need to be cleaned and sanitized before opening for business again. At first, they didn't think much of it, they had cleaned the restaurant many times before, but the inspector told them that they should call a professional company to do the cleaning due to the cause. They explained that the fine concrete dust was everywhere and covered everything in the restaurant right down to the light fixtures and salt and pepper shakers on every table. They didn't know how they were going to get everything cleaned so they could open for business then someone on scene recommended they called SERVPRO of Taunton/Mansfield.

Within an hour we responded and began the process of cleaning every square inch of the restaurant. We were able to give them peace of mind knowing that their restaurant was cleaned and sanitized, so they could get back to doing what they do best, cooking for the neighborhood!

A few days later, I was in the area and stopped by to see how everything was during lunchtime. I was happy to see a full restaurant serving amazing food and thought to myself today is a perfect fall day for some soup. As I sat enjoying a delicious bowl of homemade beef stew and watching the staff and customers converse I realized that this is the reason why we do what we do! Bad things happen to good people sometimes and I am proud to say we have their back when it does!

Can A Taunton Business Build A Better Business Image Simply Through Cleanliness?

Every business wants to see their premises neat and clean. Cleanliness is necessary to maintain the aesthetic appeal of the space. The business owners always want to win over their clientele with their impeccable attention to detail. However, this does not happen without due efforts. There are a number of tasks related to cleaning that is undertaken to make your commercial property look better.

If you are looking to get these services via a professional company, then you can get in touch with us, SERVPRO of Taunton/Mansfield. Our skilled cleanup crew and restoration technicians will leave your property spick and span!

Air Ducts and HVAC Cleaning

All commercial properties have a ventilation system which may be prone to contamination by dust, dirt, etc. if left unchecked. Heating, ventilation, air-conditioning unit (HVAC) may be responsible for the circulation of dust, pollen, odors, dirt and debris and other contaminants if these remain uncleaned for a long period of time. Hence, duct cleaning becomes necessary. But before you slide in a new cleaning budget to your business, first call a representative from our company to get an inspection for better guidance. Call us for air ducts and HVAC cleaning as we routinely undertake such a cleaning task in the most professional way. Monitoring your ducts in time will save you money and provide you with clean air to breathe.

Carpets and Upholstery Cleaning

Carpet and upholstery add a statement of style to your commercial property and its cleaning is a must. Carpets trap dirt, dust, pet hair and soil since they act as a filter to keep your spaces from getting overly untidy. Some of the preventive maintenance actions for carpet cleaning are regular vacuuming, spot removal, moving furniture to change traffic patterns, use of walk-off mats to restrict the amount of soil on a carpet and pilating the carpet to prevent matting among other measures. If you’re looking to get effective carpet cleaning, get in touch with us as we have state-of-the-art equipment with years of experience on our side. The services we offer include bonnet, showcase premier, dry cleaning, hot water extraction, deluxe precondition and rinse, to deliver the best results with a high rate of satisfaction.

Maintenance of Ceiling, Floor, and Wall

Ceiling, wall and floor cleaning is an integral part of the cleaning procedure for business properties. Walls and ceilings are susceptible to dirt, dust, pet dander, cooking oils and grease, cigarette smoke and other contaminants which taint the original element of beautification. If you are thinking of getting a paint job done in your office, then keep in mind to fix all and any holes and cracks in the ceilings, walls, and floors. In doing so, you will end up with a smoother surface when painted anew. Floors like hardwood and tiles also need to be cleaned and may require additional attention as the soil that accumulates on it in time may be harder to get rid of. We have an approved cleaning method for such surfaces which enables our professionals to restore the beauty of your property to its former glory.

Deep Kitchen Cleaning

The kitchen is an important and the most used part of any commercial premises. Due to frequent use, dirt and dust may pose a problem over time. Proper deep cleaning of kitchens becomes imperative after a certain period as dust can accumulate on fixtures, cabinets, and appliances present in the kitchen. This may harm the food and may even lead to health concerns. Get it effectively deep cleaned after a few months to keep the environment and occupants healthy.  

Effective Mold Remediation

Mold is a nasty problem for any property. It affects the appearance of its black icky growth. Targeted restoration and effective cleaning procedures should be followed to deal with mold damage removal. Hire our competent mold remediation services and our experience and skilled restoration technicians will take care of the rest.

  • Tape a path of plastic sheet to the floor to avoid soiling other areas on the property.
  • Place all damaged and undamaged items outside to dry out in the open.
  • Swab the area with an effective industry standard bleach solution.

How Professionals Handle It

You have done all that could have been done, and now it’s time for our professionals to handle the job till it’s done.
