How Commercial Cleaning can Help
Natural disasters and other mishaps, such as hurricanes or fires, can happen at any time. There may be flooding, broken glass, dirt, watermarks, debris and other issues. Fortunately, commercial cleaning experts are trained in proper cleanup techniques to get you back on your feet.
First Things First
It is important that when you hire a commercial cleaning company, that you go over what their emergency cleanup services include and what you can expect from them. Discuss the basics of a plan of attack for particular situations, such as what should be done after a hurricane and the order in which those cleanup services are done. Be sure to have your company’s emergency number on hand, no matter where you are. It’s a good idea to have the number programmed into a cell phone that you have on you all the time, just in case.
Storm and Natural Disaster cleanup
From hurricanes to tornadoes, or even just a strong storm, natural disasters come in many forms. And because of that, you can expect a wide variety of damage, like wind and flood water damage. A commercial cleaning service will remove debris, extract water, remove water marks, dry out the carpets, shampoo your carpets and even do upholstery cleaning. In addition, there will also be a process of disinfecting surfaces to remove any contaminants left behind by the storm (think sewage water mixing with flood water). The process of drying out your building will also stop mold, mildew and bacteria from growing that can affect the health of your workers and customers.
Sometimes it doesn’t take a torrential storm or a hurricane to flood your business. A burst water main, backed up sewage or a broken dam can also cause damage to your building. The cleanup is much the same as it would be after a strong natural disaster that caused water damage to your building. Special steps are taken to dry out and disinfect surfaces as well as removing water marks, shampooing your carpets and doing upholstery cleaning.
Fire damage is devastating but thankfully, it does not always spread past a certain area if caught and contained quickly enough. For areas that do not suffer structural damage, there will still be smoke and water damage that will require cleanup. Surfaces will be scrubbed clean, water extracted and any water marks removed.
Work with Contractors
After a disaster or emergency, your business will need more than just cleanup services, requiring the need for contractors to perform repair services. Professional commercial cleaning services have extensive experience working with contractors. They will work to clean up from a disaster and help clean during and after construction with their construction cleanup services. So if your building happens to need some construction done after a disaster, you know your cleanup team is ready to help from start to finish.
