Does Your Office Need A Deep Clean?

3/7/2022 (Permalink)

Spring is basically here.  Temperatures are on the rise, and some trees are starting to show buds.  So it may be time to consider a deep clean of your office.  There are a number of reasons commercial clients choose to have their spaces cleaned professionally around this time of year.

COVID and other decontamination

This is a great time to push the reset button on the microscopic cleanliness of your office.  The high sickness season is almost over, so start the year off fresh by having your office deep cleaned.  This service includes all high-touch areas like doorknobs, counters, and desks. 


Sometimes, businesses would like deep cleaning for cosmetic reasons.  No major damage event has occurred, but they may still be a good candidate for deep cleaning services.  During the winter, salt and sand are tracked in, which can give carpeting discoloration.  Sometimes dirt and dust become trapped in the fibers of carpeting, and vacuuming alone cannot fix the issue. 

General cleaning

Sometimes, even with our best efforts, offices can get cluttered.  The culprit could be files, boxes, or many other items.  We can come into your office and remove any unwanted materials so that you have more space.

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

Commercial Ice Blasting Services

3/3/2022 (Permalink)

Have you ever heard of ice blasting?

If not, it is a service that has many applications in a commercial setting.  Similar to sandblasting, millions of tiny particles are propelled out of a wand onto a surface.  The tiny particles act as an abrasion agent that can remove a multitude of materials from a surface.  SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport offers this service to businesses for both emergency and nonemergency situations.


After certain property damage occurs, surfaces inside your business may need cleaning that cannot be achieved by normal cleaning procedures.  Ice blasting is a great option in this case. One such situation is after a fire.  Smoke and soot residue may settle on wood beams or brick walls that are otherwise unaffected by the fire.  In this case, we may use ice blasting to clean the surface of the offending odor and discoloration. 

Non Emergency

Sometimes, businesses would like deep cleaning for cosmetic reasons.  No major damage event has occurred, but they may still be a good candidate for ice blasting services.  We can use this technology on building fronts and facades, as well as the sidewalk near the storefront.  In this way, we have cleaned gum and other debris from many municipal sidewalks throughout Fairfield County. 

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

Protect Your Business From Mold

4/14/2021 (Permalink)

Save yourself the headache!

With the weather beginning to warm up, mold will inevitably become an issue for many business owners in Fairfield County around this time.  Every year, moisture that was frozen before has thawed, and is now a perfect condition for mold growth.  Not only can it cause health effects, but it can pose an issue for the structure of your building.  But you can try to prevent this growth by following some simple tips.

Maintain Air Filters

Having your HVAC system cleaned regularly can go a long way to preventing potential mold growth.  Cleaning the vents, drainage pans, and hoses out will keep them from allowing mold to develop.

Limit Moisture

Keep your business dry as much as possible. If moisture is a known issue, you can run a dehumidifier.  If your business is ventilated by an air system, keep that running to cycle out any moisture.  Make sure that any structural leaks are sealed immediately.

Clean Your Carpets

Many people do not consider carpets to be a potential contributor to mold growth.  But carpets and padding are very porous, which can harbor mold spores.  If moisture is present, the mold spores can grow quickly and cause issues.  Have your carpets cleaned regularly by a professional cleaning company.

If you notice mold growth or smell a musty odor in your business, reach out immediately.  We have the skilled technicians and specialized equipment needed for your commercial or residential odor elimination needs.  That’s why SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport should be your first call. Contact us at 203.324.1642 for assistance.

Why You Might Want To Invest In A Fire Sprinkler Or Suppression System For Your Business

3/8/2021 (Permalink)

On average, businesses that have a sprinkler or suppression system in place suffer 50% less damage than those who do not. 

When a fire breaks out, it always has the chance of spreading.  Depending on the conditions and location, this spread can happen extremely quickly.  The key to limiting damage is to limit the rate that the fire grows, and how much ground it can cover.  You can achieve this through the use of a fire extinguisher, but sometimes that is not enough.  That is where a sprinkler or suppression system comes in.

These systems work by releasing water, chemicals, or other agents that work to stop the fire in its tracks. As soon as the system senses a fire, it springs into action.  This not only slows or stops damage from occurring at all, but also gives you and your employees time to evacuate the building to ensure everyone’s safety.  The damage suffered by businesses without any system is almost always more than those with a system installed.  If you don't have a system, you may want to invest.  If you do have a system, make sure that it is inspected on a regular basis so that you know it will perform when needed. 

We have the skilled technicians and specialized equipment needed for your commercial damage remediation needs.  That’s why SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport should be your first call. Contact us at 203.324.1642 for assistance.

Storefront Damage Remediation

3/5/2021 (Permalink)

Many businesses throughout Bridgeport, Trumbull, and Monroe are located in close proximity to each other.  Many retail spaces can be found in shopping centers, where storefronts are right next to their neighbor.  When damage occurs in one or more of these spaces, remediation efforts must all be done through one or two entry points.  This is different from residential settings and roomier retail settings, where restoration technicians can gain entry from many points.

These very limitations are why SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport has equipped themselves with the tools to get the job done.  We have extractors that do not need to be brought into the business, as they reside on our vehicles.  This gets by the limitation that a smaller door presents. We also have smaller units that can fit in tighter spaces, which we can carry from place to place.

We also pride ourselves on our ability to handle damage that affects multiple storefronts at one time.  We have specialized equipment that can remove water and moisture that can extract from walls and floors.  This allows us to get you back in business as soon as possible.

Clean Your HVAC System Yesterday?

2/19/2021 (Permalink)

Yes, you read that right. If you haven't had your ducts or HVAC cleaned in a while, it is probably time to get it done. Air quality is very important for employees’ overall health, and has only become more important over the last 12 months.  Having clean ductwork goes a long way to improving air quality inside your office or building.

But why is it so urgent?

  • You will improve the air quality immediately
  • You may save money, as clogged ductwork is less efficient, and may require expensive repairs if left for too long.
  • Your office will smell better
  • Your office will look cleaner, as more dust particles will be sucked into the ducts and out of the building.

Signs that you need a cleaning:

  • Foul smells with no known origin
  • Excess dust buildup around the building or office
  • You have just recently completed construction
  • It has been more than five years since your last cleaning 

Now you know that time is of the essence for improving air quality by cleaning the ducts in your business. Protect yourself by calling SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport. You can reach us at 203.324.1642 at any time for immediate assistance.

Ice Dams Can Cause Serious Problems

2/2/2021 (Permalink)

We all like to stay warm during cold weather.  But did you know that keeping our homes heated can lead to an issue known as an ice dam. 

Ice dams occur when indoor heating rises throughout your home, warming your roof. Ice and snow on the warmer portion of the roof melts and trickles downward until it hits the colder part of your roof, where it refreezes.  This is known as an ice dam.Ice dams present many potential serious issues to your home or business. If the conditions become too drastic, your gutters and shingles may come off, and water can flow back into your house.  If the water sits, it can soak wood, insulation, and drywall, leading to mold growth and mildew odors.

Common signs of an ice dam are icicle and ice buildup around the edge of your roof.  If you observe these conditions, you may want to take steps to relieve the stress on your roof. You do not want to use too much force, as your roof may become damaged.

  • While it may seem counterintuitive, blowing cold air with a fan can help freeze exterior water in place.  This will prevent it from running and weighing down your gutters. 
  • Remove excess snow from your roof.  Use caution when doing this. If on a ladder, use caution.  If you remove snow and ice from the ground, be careful not to get hit by falling material.

If you identify that you have an ice dam at your business, follow the above steps.  If damage has already occurred, call SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport.  We have decades of experience remediating damage from ice dams.  We can be reached 24/7 at 203.324.1642.

Maintain Good Air Quality In Your Business

1/11/2021 (Permalink)

Keeping air quality at a good level is important for your employees' and coworkers' overall health.  Contaminants in the air can lead to a number of adverse health effects. The number of contaminants drastically rises in the wake of a flood, where mold can grow in damp conditions. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “the term ‘sick building syndrome’ is used to describe situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified. The complaints may be localized in a particular room or zone, or may be widespread throughout the building. In contrast, the term ‘building related illness’ is used when symptoms of diagnosable illness are identified and can be attributed directly to airborne building contaminants.” 

As you can see, the air quality in your business can directly affect people’s health. This is especially true in the present, as many people are concerned with dangerous airborne particles. In order to protect your people, you can take steps to control the level of moisture and subsequent mold after any water damage with just a few key steps.

  • Make sure the original source of the water is fixed, whether it was a pipe, the roof, etc.
  • Keep the areas around air conditioners and humidifiers free from moisture and pooling water
  • If any mold is found, call a remediation company immediately

If you experience any water damage or mold damage, please call the professionals at SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport as soon as possible.  Time is of the essence to keep your business air quality at safe levels.

Two Reasons To Let SERVPRO Help With Your Commercial Sewer Backup

3/23/2020 (Permalink)

When a business or commercial building has sewage back up into their working area, it presents a few issues.  These range from business interruption to unsafe working conditions. Getting the problem fixed quickly is important to resolving both of those issues. This leads some Bridgeport business owners to address the problem themselves, in the interest of time and money.  This is a bad idea for a few reasons:

Hard To See

We have encountered many people who try to clean sewage themselves, and then end up calling us down the road due to bad smells and discolored and warped walls and floors. Sewage, like regular water, will soak into any material it comes into contact with. This damage will not be evident right away, so it is often missed.  SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport has the equipment and techniques to detect and extract all sewage in the beginning, so no problems arise in the future.


It may seem like tackling the issue yourself is a less costly option.  But it can cost far more if the job is not done properly the first time around.  If you do not adequately address the problem, mold can develop, which will need to be cleaned.  This will be an additional cost on top of the initial cleanup that many business owners do not consider. 


Raw sewage carries an incredible amount of harmful bacteria.  If contact is made during cleanup, you can become ill. Additionally, if the sewage dries, that harmful bacteria can become airborne, causing further illness, even when there is no sign of damage remaining.

3 Things You Need To Know About Commercial Water Damage

3/6/2020 (Permalink)

You've had water damage in your business.  So many thoughts are probably running through your mind.  What should I do? What's the first step? How long will this affect my business?  

The one thought that you definitely will have will be around the cost, and whether or not your insurance will cover the damage.

1. What Type Of Damages Are Covered By Different Policies

Depending on the origin of the water in your business, you may or may not be covered under your policy.  Your business insurance policy should cover water damage that comes from a sump pump failure, a burst pipe or a sink overflow.  If the water comes from a flood causing water to flow into your building, you will not be covered. A separate flood insurance policy is what is needed to be covered under those circumstances.   

2. Not Every Water Damage Is Covered

When your business suffers water damage, some of the damage will be covered, but not everything will be covered.  The initial damage will be taken care of by your policy. But any damage that happens as a result of water being left stagnant will not be covered.  For instance, if a sink overflows, yoru policy should cover the extraction of the water, drying the area out, and reconstruction of any walls that were affected.  If the water is not properly dried out, and mold begins to grow, your policy will not cover you to remove it.

3. SERVPRO Of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport 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.

Common Issues That Could Affect Your Commercial Building

3/5/2020 (Permalink)

Keeping your business or commercial property safe and sound is important to you.  Additionally, the outward appearance dictates how the public views your business. But small issues can turn into larger ones if not taken care of soon enough. 

We have highlighted some of the issues that occur most frequently in commercial buildings. When you have some time, inspect your building for these issues. Should you find any of these, do your best to get them fixed in a timely manner.  Not addressing them soon enough could result in costly damage happening down the road.

Leaks - Whether you have a leak in your roof, foundation, or pipes, water can accumulate in areas of your building.  That can lead to rotting wood, foul odors, and mold growth.

Asbestos - Although not used much anymore, older buildings may still have asbestos present.  Get your building inspected.

Fire Safety Regulations - Make sure that your fire extinguishers are up to date and are in working order.  Check your sprinkler system to ensure that in the event of a fire, they will work as intended.

Electrical Faults - If you have older wiring in your building, you should have it checked for faults.  If you have ever had a rodent problem, you should also have your wiring checked. Mice and rats tend to chew on wires, leaving them exposed and more likely to start a fire.

At SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport, we offer many commercial services. Whether you have fire, water, or mold damage, we can be there quickly to begin the remediation process.

Commercial Fires And Why They Happen

3/5/2020 (Permalink)

Fires occur in a commercial setting all the time.  Take simple precautions to protect yourself before disaster strikes. 

According to the National Fire Prevention Association, fire departments respond to over 3,300 fires in businesses each year.  These fires caused over $112 million in property damage, including business interruption and lost revenue. If you own a business or own a commercial property, you should be aware of where the fire risks lie, and take preventative measures to reduce those risks.

Similar to our homes, a majority of fires in a commercial structure happen as a result of cooking.  Ensure that smoke detectors are functional, and that batteries are replaced on a regular basis.  Also make sure that there are working fire extinguishers available, and they are not expired. This is especially important in areas of your business that have a kitchen or other heat-producing appliances. 

Improper knowledge and lack of knowledge is the other prevalent cause of fire damage in businesses.  To combat this, conduct routine fire safety meetings. Teach employees and staff proper fire safety, as well as informing them where fire extinguishers are located.

SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport can help you plan for a disaster by completing an Emergency Readiness Profile. It will ensure that in the event of a fire, we are able to respond in the most efficient manner.  Contact us to get one of these free documents created for you and your business.

Is Your Commercial Building Wasting Water?

3/4/2020 (Permalink)

At home, it’s easy to cut down on your water usage.  You can take shorter showers or turn the faucet off while you brush your teeth.  In a business setting, this becomes harder. For one, there are many more people that have the potential to waste water. There are a few measures you can take to reduce water consumption at your business, which in turn, will save you money.

You have probably seen touch-free faucets that disperse water for a short period of time before turning off.  You can install these in your business. The upfront cost is not small, but should save you money in the long run. Manufacturers claim that automatic faucets can save up to 80% of water per faucet installed. 

Additionally, using newer faucet aerators can save money too. The typical bathroom uses 2.2 gallons of water per minute.  Installing an aerator will keep the same water pressure, while reducing water output by .5 gallons per minute. At around $2 per unit, this is an extremely inexpensive way to save money in your business.

While the upfront cost may be high, you can also install water-efficient appliances in your business.  This includes items like dishwashers, toilets, and drinking fountains, where it applies.

SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport promote the use of water-saving measures to business owners for their cost-saving potential.

Secondary Damages That Can Affect Your Business

2/20/2020 (Permalink)

When a flood or other water damage hits your business, you will probably see some visibible and instant damage, such as drywall and carpeting that is soaked or waterlogged. This type of issue is referred to as primary damage, as it is the first way that water affects the structure.  If primary damage is not addressed in a timely manner, or in the right way, it can quickly lead to secondary damage. These are issues that progress slower and may result in harder to notice problems. If your primary damage is not addressed by professionals, like the ones at SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport, it can lead to some of these problems. 

Deteriorating Drywall

Once drywall has been soaked through, it needs to be thoroughly dried out.  If it is not, it will begin to break down. The material inside the drywall begins to disintegrate if not dried soon enough.  This can lead to a larger project down the road if not addressed properly from the start.

Mold Growth

Mold becomes an issue when moisture levels after a water damage in your business are not returned to acceptable levels.  Lingering moisture allows mold spores to grow, sometimes at a rapid rate. They can spread to other parts of your business, leading to foul odors and other unsatisfactory problems.  

Warping Hardwood Floors 

When hardwood floors become soaked after water damage, the moisture needs to be fully extracted from the floorboards.  If it is not done completely, the remaining moisture can cause the wood to shift and warp. This issue can be very costly, as hardwood is expensive, and the process to replace the wood is not cheap either.

Showroom Flooding

2/1/2019 (Permalink)

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.

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.

We are an IICRC Certified Firm

2/5/2018 (Permalink)

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification creates the standards for the restoration industry and provides training and certification to restoration companies.

IICRC Certified Firms must

• Present accurate information to consumers and conduct business with honesty and integrity.

• Require a technician on all jobs who has been formally trained and passed all required tests.

• Require a continuing education program to keep technicians up-to-date on the latest changes in the industry.

• Maintain liability insurance to protect all parties in the event of an accident.

• Maintain a written complaint policy and agree to Better Business Bureau or similar arbitration to resolve disputes, and accept the conclusions and recommendations of arbitration.

The IICRC Develops the Standards for The Restoration Industry

The IICRC has been the driving force in establishing the main industry standards and reference guides for professional carpet cleaning, water damage restoration and mold remediation. These IICRC standards take years to develop and require the coordination of experts in the field: manufacturers, industry organizations, insurance professionals, training schools, contractors, and public health professionals.

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.

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.

Dangers of Asbestos in a Business

2/5/2018 (Permalink)

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.

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.
