Occupant and worker safety is ServiceMaster Restore’s top priority. During the initial inspection, safety hazards are identified and addressed, including debris removal, air quality, electrical issues, slip and trip hazards, etc. Burnt electrical appliances are separated out for disposal, and questionable electrical appliances are unplugged and tagged for evaluation of safe operation. Electrical power may have to be turned off until evaluation by a licensed electrician is completed.
ServiceMaster Restore’s water damage mitigation specialists will place and monitor specialized equipment throughout your commercial property to achieve optimal results in the shortest amount of time. Equipment should never be turned off or moved by anyone other than the damage mitigation technician.
There are often health risks associated with finding mould in your home, including allergy-like respiratory symptoms, skin irritation, cold and flu symptoms, headaches, nausea and mould-induced asthma. It’s important to know the causes of the mould growth before it occurs, so you can work to avoid damage to both your health and your home.
