One thing that Fairfield County can boast is a plethora of amazing restaurants that run throughout.  They serve us great food, and we have a diverse selection of options.  But having a high-capacity kitchen can get dirty very quickly.  Even restaurants that abide by health codes can have areas that need to be deep cleaned once in a while.

Commercial Pest Cleanup

2/25/2022 (Permalink)

During the winter months, we all like to keep our offices warm.  Unfortunately, these warm conditions invite critters of all shapes and sizes to seek shelter.  Similar to our homes, it is not uncommon to find mice and other vermin in commercial settings.  And as we all know, these animals can make quite the mess, made worse by the length of their stay within our walls.

While SERVPRO of Greenwich is not in the extermination business, we excel at the cleanup of the aftermath.  

If you see evidence of rodents or other vermin, you should seek out the assistance of a professional exterminator as soon as possible.  Once they have done their job, your next call should be to us.  We will come in and clean all the areas where the critters lived.  Whether it is nesting, food, or animal waste, we can safely and securely clean your building or office so that your employees can continue to work in a safe and clean environment.

Commercial Cleaning Services In Greenwich

2/24/2022 (Permalink)

Commercial offices are some of the most trafficked spaces in Fairfield County.  Between staff, clients, workers, and vendors, there may be hundreds of people that come and go in a given day.  Add in other spaces like kitchens and conference rooms, and the probability of dirtiness goes way up.  With so many people, there is also the risk of contamination from COVID.  

Having a clean and safe environment is important for your employees. SERVPRO of Greenwich offers a wide array of commercial services for all of your cleaning needs.  We have everything from light cleaning for cosmetic improvement, to deep disinfection for viral decontamination.  Not only do we offer top-notch cleaning services, but we also have the knowledge to work around sensitive materials and equipment.

SERVPRO of Greenwich has over 30 years of experience working with companies and clients with their cleaning needs.  If you have any type of damage, call us immediately at 203.324.1642.

Commercial Mold Remediation

2/9/2022 (Permalink)

When mold grows in a commercial setting, it is usually the result of some type of leak in the building. Common areas include the kitchen, the roof, or the HVAC system. Whatever the source, mold needs to be removed to keep your employees safe and healthy.  This is especially important for those with allergies or respiratory conditions.

You should not try to remove the mold yourself.  It can quickly become overwhelming, and may not be enough to return your space to satisfactory condition, even if it looks like it.  That being said, acting quickly is important. After identifying that your business has mold that needs to be removed, make your first call to SERVPRO of Greenwich.

SERVPRO of Greenwich will efficiently and safely remove excess mold spores without spreading them into the air, and ensuring that the mold will not grow back under optimal conditions.  Our mold remediation technicians are equipped with the correct gear, equipment, and knowledge to do so properly. We have a proven process that will maximize effectiveness, while minimizing the interruption that your business suffers.

It is important to contact a certified mold remediation professional as soon as you are aware of damage. SERVPRO of Greenwich has over 30 years of experience working with people who need mold damage restoration at their business property.  If you have any type of property damage, call us immediately at 203.324.1642.

Commercial Contents Services

1/24/2022 (Permalink)

No matter how diligent or careful you are, sometimes events occur that are out of your control.  When these events happen and cause damage to your commercial property, there are many components to restoring your business to preloss condition.  These steps remain relatively constant, regardless of what caused the initial damage.

Fixing the original damage is the first part, while taking steps to prevent secondary damage is another step that needs to be taken.  One piece of the remediation process that is often overlooked is contents storage and restoration.

For example, if you have water damage at your business, you may have files and furniture that is affected.  Our technicians will save as much of the contents as possible and package them up.  We will bring them back to our warehouse for any possible restoration, and for storage while the on-site restoration occurs.  If you have a fire, we will bring any salvageable contents back to our warehouse to deodorize them, and then store them until your business is ready to be opened again.

It is important to contact a damage restoration professional as soon as you notice any damage. SERVPRO of Greenwich has over 30 years of experience working with people who have had any damage to their property.  If you have any type of property damage, call us immediately at 203.324.1642.

Prepare For Flooding In Your Business

8/9/2021 (Permalink)

Being ready can make all the difference.

Summer storms can wreak havoc on both small and large businesses alike.  Wind, lightning, and water can cause massive amounts of damage.  Being ready, and taking some simple steps can greatly reduce the amount of damage that your business takes.  You can also keep your employees safe by using these same steps.

Emergency Planning

Planning can take many forms, both for safety and damage mitigation.  Having a well documented and distributed emergency plan is essential.  For example, knowing where and when to shut off your building water main can prevent excess fooding.  One of these plans can be accomplished in-house, or through a SERVPRO of Greenwich Emergency Readiness Profile.

Waterproofing Your Business

Make sure your roof is free of leaks.  Have it routinely checked for weak spots and areas that may be compromised. Do the same if your business has a basement.  Any areas in the foundation that could let water in should be addressed.  Also make sure that any sump pumps are in working order.  If a heavy storm does occur, make sure that any sensitive items are sheltered away from as much water as possible.

Being Aware Of Your Coverage

Insurance policies vary from policy to policy.  Read yours over carefully to see what you are and are not covered for.  If you see an area that you believe needs addressing, speak to your carrier to make any necessary changes if possible.

Sometimes water damage can occur, even when we are on top of being prepared.  In this case, call SERVPRO of Greenwich.  We have extensive experience and will take care of you and your property.  We work with your insurance company, and are available 24/7 to help.

How Will Your Business Fare In An Emergency?

3/8/2021 (Permalink)

As a member of the Large Loss Team, SERVPRO of Greenwich is ready for anything.

When a business faces emergency damage, their ability to navigate the issue is usually a direct result of how they prepared.  If a business takes the threat of water or fire damage seriously before it happens, they often are able to come out the other side in a smoother fashion.  This is compared to a business that didn't care to prepare.

So how do you prepare for damage before it happens?

To prepare for a potential fire, make sure your extinguishers are in working order.  They expire after a while, and may not function properly when you need them the most.  If your business has a sprinkler system, have it inspected regularly to ensure its effectiveness and readiness.

A great step to take is to have a SERVPRO Emergency Ready Plan set up before damage occurs.  This plan allows SERVPRO of Greenwich to have prior knowledge of your business.  In the event of an emergency, we are able to respond quicker and more effectively, which minimizes the amount of damage, and make the remediation go more smoothly.

Give us a call at 203.324.1642 to schedule today!

Commercial Fire Damage Process

2/26/2021 (Permalink)

When fire damage happens in your business, SERVPRO of Greenwich technicians follow a specific set of steps during remediation. This allows us to provide a complete and thorough service to our customers every time.

First, we work to remove any discoloration and damaged material from walls, floors, and ceilings.  We use a non-toxic blend of solutions to clean from top to bottom.  We can also apply a sealant to any exposed and affected wood, to trap foul odors inside.  This goes a long way in the remediation process, and the customer’s satisfaction.

We also take care of your belongings. Any salvageable item that needs cleaning comes back to our facility, where it is cleaned according to material and extent of damage.  We can clean clothing, furniture, carpets, and even documents if necessary.

Fire damage can strike your business without any notice.  SERVPRO of Greenwich is ready to respond at a moment's notice.  If you have any amount of fire damage, give us a call at 203.324.1642.

Carpet Cleaning At Your Greenwich Commercial Property

2/25/2021 (Permalink)

Give your office a deep cleaning or a refresh with a carpet cleaning. 

Whether in an entryway or in office space, carpets get dirty over time.  Between dirt that is tracked inside, dust, and other debris, carpets do a great job of trapping it in.  A routine carpet cleaning will make your office look and smell nicer, as well as extend the lifetime of your carpet.  An effective carpet care program consists of things you can do yourself, and professional cleaning a couple times per year.   The steps you can take yourself:

  • Regular vacuuming
  • Addressing spills before they become stains
  • Changing the arrangement of furniture to reduce wear

As stated above, these steps can be done by you or someone in your office.  But for a complete cleaning that truly purifies your carpet, you need a professional company like SERVPRO of Greenwich to do a deep clean.  We can clean your carpets before or after work hours, so as not to interrupt the daily routine of your office.  If you are interested in having a thorough cleaning of your carpets, give us a call today.

How Long Do You Have When Your Business Has Water Damage?

2/10/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Greenwich recently responded to a water damage in a corporate office building.  One of the offices had a burst pipe that flooded a large portion of their space.  A number of offices were affected, along with the mailroom. To their credit, they acted fast, both by turning off the water main and by calling us to start remediation as soon as the problem was identified.

Any water damage in a commercial setting has the potential to cause serious damage if left or not treated properly. As the moisture is left to fester, it can lead to compounding issues over time.  Here is a timeline of what happens as time passes.


  • The water begins to flow out and begins saturating any porous surface it comes into contact with.

Within 24 Hours

  • Hardwood begins to warp and may even fracture
  • Sheetrock walls and ceilings start to disintegrate
  • Mold spores start to develop

Within Five Days

  • Microbial spores develop more rapidly, especially under warm conditions
  • Wood in furniture, floors, and walls become unsaveable from permanent warping and cupping
  • Walls and ceilings begin to fall apart 

Beyond Seven Days

  • Structural integrity become a serious issue
  • Mold growth can now present a health hazard
  • The price to fully remediate goes up

Now you know that time is of the essence when you experience water damage at your business. Protect your business by calling SERVPRO of Greenwich. You can reach us at 203.324.1642 at any time for immediate assistance.

Is Your Business Prepared For Winter Storms?

1/22/2021 (Permalink)

While Fairfield County has experienced somewhat of a mild winter, a winter storm can still happen at any time.  A winter storm can cause damage of many kinds.  Freezing temperatures, heavy snow, and ice buildup are all things that can wreak havoc on your business.  But you can prepare beforehand to minimize the damage that you and your business are susceptible to.  Use the following tips to be prepared:

  • Inspect your business for potential areas that could allow water in, such as damaged roofing and cluttered gutters. 
  • Make sure walkways are free of ice.  Have de-icer on hand to melt away any buildup.
  • After a storm, inspect the building for tree branches.  If large enough, they can cause roof damage that may need to be repaired.  A damaged roof can let water in, causing further damage.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Greenwich about starting an Emergency Readiness Plan for your business.  This allows us to respond as quickly as possible, limiting damage and getting you back in business as soon as possible.

Obviously, not all damage to your business can be prevented.  In more serious cases, you may need to rely on a professional for help.  SERVPRO of Greenwich can respond immediately to winter storm and water damage. If you have any winter-related damage to your business, please call us at 203.324.1642.  We are available to help 24/7.

3 Things You Need To Know About Commercial Water Damage

3/6/2020 (Permalink)

When your business is affected by any type of water damage, it is an upsetting time.  So many questions need to be answered, and you may not know what the outcome will be. Here are three important things about water damage that are crucial to know.

1. Response time is critical

When you suffer water damage, you need to act fast.  The longer water sits, the more it is able to soak floorboards, carpets, and walls, leading to longer restoration time. This can mean longer for your business to resume operations.

Additionally, when time passes, the threat of secondary damage in the form of mold growth drastically increases.  Mold spores thrive in the exact conditions that water damage provides, and can begin to grow as soon as 24 hours after initial damage.  The area needs to be dried quickly to reduce the possibility of the mold growing.

2. The pollution level of the water is important.

All water damages are not created equally. Water can come from a variety of sources, and that dictates what category it falls under, and how the remediation process unfolds.

Category 1 - This is water that originates from a clean source.  This could be from a sink overflow or a break in a water supply line.  This water presents no health risks on its own.

Category 2 - Known as “grey water,” water in this category can come from sources like a dirty toilet or sump pump failure.  This water may cause illness through human contact. Water that starts as Category 1 can become Category 2 through contact with other contaminated materials.

Category 3 - This is water that presents serious and immediate health risks to those who come into contact with it.  This includes, but not limited to sewage or groundwater. In this category, water may carry bacteria, heavy metals, or other organic toxins.  Stagnant Category 2 water can easily turn into Category 3 over time.

3. SERVPRO Of Greenwich Can Help

We have over 30 years of experience remediating all types of water damages in a commercial building.  Our skilled technicians utilize both the most effective techniques and specialized equipment to make sure that you are taken care of.  We will act fast to get your business back up and running as soon as possible.

Be Ready For Spring

2/26/2020 (Permalink)

We are only a matter of weeks away from spring! The spring season brings wonderful things like warmer weather and fresh grass.  It also comes with the potential for weather events consisting of heavy rain, high-speed winds, and flooding. These can all cause damage to your business.  There is time to take some precautions to protect yourself against these types of damages. Doing these things can mean that you are prepared for weather that spring can bring.

Springtime water damage can be prevented or lessened by:

  • Being aware of upcoming water-related weather patterns
  • Clearing storm drains to prevent backup
  • Inspecting your sump pump to ensure that it is working properly
  • Clearing your gutters of any debris such as leaves that has accumulated

Other things you can do to prevent property damage include:

  • Check your roof for cracked shingles and other weak points that could let water in
  • Make sure that any dead trees are taken down.  This will prevent structural damage from wind-blown trees that could fall down.
  • Assembling an emergency preparedness kit with items such as food, water, a flashlight, and a first aid kit.

SERVPRO of Greenwich is skilled in remediating many types of damage that occur as a result of a storm event.  If your business is affected by wind, water, or structural damage, please give us a call. We are available 24/7 to provide assistance. 

Why Have An Emergency Readiness Program For Your Business?

2/26/2020 (Permalink)

Disasters strike businesses all the time.  Whether it be a fire or flood, an emergency like these can cause structural damage that can lead to business interruption.  Loss of revenue is common in these situations. Steps can be taken to reduce the damage that is caused by reducing the response time.

SERVPRO of Greenwich is always ready to respond when disaster affects your business, but we can also help you be prepared as well. With our Emergency Readiness Program (ERP), we put a plan in place in case of emergency. We work with you to identify areas of importance in your business, such as water and gas shutoffs, as well as emergency contact information.  We then compile all the information in a concise way within a document that you keep on file. It can also be viewed via your computer or tablet for immediate access.  We also keep a copy so that when we respond, our technicians know exactly where to go and who to call.

In the event of an emergency, a SERVPRO Emergency Readiness Program can reduce business interruption by providing a plan of action for you and your business. Having an ERP can save critical time when a fire or flood affects your business.  Contact SERVPRO of Greenwich today to begin the process of creating your plan, a service that we offer free of charge.

Commercial Generator Safety

2/26/2020 (Permalink)

A generator is a very helpful asset for any business, especially in the event of disaster.  In a flood, it can power a sump pump if there is a power outage. A generator can also keep vital appliances running under the same circumstances.  If you do have a generator for your business, follow some basic safety tips to ensure that it is being used efficiently and in a safe manner.  

  • Refrain from using your generator in a fully or partially enclosed space.  This includes garages, offices, basement, and crawl spaces. Running a generator under these conditions can lead to carbon monoxide building up.  Especially dangerous due to the lack of odor, if inhaled, can lead to severe health effects and even death. Between 2005 and 2017, more than 900 people died as a result of generator-related carbon monoxide poisoning.  Make sure to properly ventilate any area that a generator is used in.
  • When a generator is used in a flood  or water-related situation, the risk of electrocution rises immensely.  If use is necessary, make sure to keep the generator dry. Use non-conductive material to elevate the machine above the water.
  • If you need to refuel the generator, let it cool down before putting more fuel in.  When hot, any spilled fuel can ignite, causing further damage to the business, as well as to the people in the vicinity.

Hotel Shower Cleaning

Employee smiling in a clean shower. Our awesome technician Roberto after cleaning a bunch of showers at a commercial property.

Recently, a large hotel had some damage on one floor of their building.  The damage caused extensive uncleanliness to the showers in the affected area.  They quickly contacted SERVPRO of Greenwich looking for a solution to their problem.  Our crew arrived on scene and got to work.  Using our eco-friendly green cleaning products, they were able to clean and sanitize all affected showers.  The hotel was able to use the rooms the next day.  The hotel management was extremely happy that the issue was resolved quickly, which resulted in limited business interruption.

If you need cleaning at your home or business, call SERVPRO of Greenwich.  We offer 24/7 service, and pride ourselves on our response time.  Our experienced technicians are skilled in the best cleaning methods.

Personal Protective Equipment Suits

8/5/2019 (Permalink)

What is PPE?

Personal Protective Equipment, which is generally abbreviated as "PPE", is worn to limit exposure to dangers in the environment when remediating damage. Exposure may result from contact with physical, synthetic, or biological contaminants. PPE may incorporate things, for example, shoes, gloves, security glasses, earplugs, respirators, hard caps, coveralls, and full bodysuits.

PPE limits the hazard to the individual’s wellbeing and security. Dangers will consistently be available, that is the reason the utilization of PPE is enhanced with control measures, especially in perilous work environments. SERVPRO of Greenwich uses both the equipment and control measures when dealing with potentially harmful conditions.

How PPE Used for Commercial Mold Remediation

The essential capacity of personal protective equipment is to restrict mold exposure.

In the event that a remediation occupation bothers the mold, and mold spores at that point become airborne, the danger of respiratory inhalation rises. But with a PPE suit, along with a respirator, our crews are protected from both inhalation effects and effects resulting from external contact.

Showroom Flooding

This was one of our trickiest jobs that we have taken on in recent history.  A pipe burst in a local art gallery and interior design showroom.  Due to the high value of many of the items in the business, we had to act extremely quickly to save them.  We were on scene within 30 minutes to begin extracting the water, and removing the valuable items. We set up our drying equipment to eradicate the remaining moisture and had them back in business in the shortest period of time.  If you have water in your business from a burst pipe, please call us.

Liquor Store Flooding

Water Leak in a Commercial Building

5/9/2018 (Permalink)

Recently, we were called to remediate a large-scale water damage in a multi-use commercial building.  Multiple businesses were affected when a sink malfunctioned, and water pooled on the second floor, seeped into the drywall, and flowed down to the first floor.

Our crew responded quickly, using cutting-edge equipment to extract thousands of gallons of water.  Once the excess water was removed, we observed that the carpets and the lower drywall was the most in need of drying.  Our skilled crew set fans to dry the affected area in a timely and efficient manner.  The photo shows our fans in action as they evaporate the moisture in one of the affected carpeted areas.

The customers involved were taken care of, and were all happy with the outcome after our crews finished the job.

Every five years, the standards are reviewed and updated. The water damage restoration field changes rapidly with advancements in technology and science, and therefore the standards must evolve to keep pace.

Prevent Legionnaire’s Disease in Commercial Settings

2/5/2018 (Permalink)

From the CDC:

Water System Maintenance

The key to preventing Legionnaires’ disease is to   prevent Legionella colonization (growth) in water systems.  Guidelines for reducing the risk of Legionella growth and spread are available for those who maintain and manage building water systems, including systems for potable (water for drinking and showering), non-potable, and recreational water from ASHRAE®. ASHRAE is a not-for-profit organization that develops standards and guidelines for industries that design, manufacture, and maintain building systems.

ASHRAE Standard 188: Legionellosis: Risk management for building water systems (ANSI approved)

Frequently Asked Questions: ASHRAE Standard 188
Get the answers to frequently asked questions about ASHRAE Standard 188, which outlines a minimum legionellosis risk management program for buildings.

ASHRAE Guideline 12-2000: Minimizing the risk of legionellosis associated with building water systems

CDC developed a toolkit to help building owners and managers better understand ASHRAE Standard 188 and how to develop a water management program to reduce the risk of Legionella growing and spreading in their building(s).

Dangers of Asbestos in a Business

Although asbestos is for the most part no longer used in construction and manufacturing, many buildings today still retain traces or even large quantities of asbestos. Particularly in older buildings, testing for and identifying this asbestos is an important job, but one that is unfortunately neglected by many business owners. Failing to test for asbestos when making renovations or restorations to a building can cause long-term negative health effects for restoration professionals, customers, and even yourself, creating a legal and financial disaster large enough to ruin most businesses. There are specific Federal regulations mandated by the EPA regarding renovating buildings, and asbestos abatement. SERVPRO provides certified asbestos testing to ensure the safety of our technicians and your customers alike.

Asbestos testing for a business is not only advisable for practical reasons, but also for legal ones. Failing to test for asbestos can lead to steep fines and regulatory penalties, regardless of whether or not the substance is present. OSHA has explicit guidelines in place regarding demolition or renovations of commercial structures, especially schools, and other municipal buildings. Furthermore, if a customer or employee gets sick as a result of untested asbestos, you may be at risk of a costly and difficult lawsuit. Federal and state authorities alike take this process seriously, which is why it is always recommended to hire a certified company like SERVPRO to complete the task. 
Health Reasons 
In addition to laws on the subject, testing for asbestos should be a major consideration for your health. Asbestos can cause many negative health effects, some of which can shorten your lifespan or lead to long-term illness. Asbestos is a known carcinogen.The longer you are exposed to it, the more likely many of these side effects are to manifest, meaning that valued employees and regular customers may also be at risk. Just as the removal of mold growth can help to avoid a medical emergency in your business, so too can asbestos testing prevent a host of serious medical issues.

Dry ice blasting is a relatively new cleaning process using solid CO2 pellets (known as dry ice). It is 
primarily used for industrial use in a variety of applications. The pellets sublimate (convert directly from a solid blast pellet to a vapor (CO2) leaving no residue. The process is superior to sand blasting, glass bead blasting and other types of cleaning methods for numerous reasons.

SERVPRO of Greenwich demonstrates the effectiveness of dry ice blasting on a heavily traveled sidewalk in downtown Stamford, CT.  This is a great service that SERVPRO of Stamford provides to many of our commercial clients.
