Odor Problem in Plainfield Commercial Business?

5/17/2022 (Permalink)

A drain in the floor of a commercial restroom is shown. We locate and remove offensive odors in Will and Kendall Counties.

Do you know that our local team in Plainfield and Naperville South is trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to identify and restore areas compromised by bad odors? Odors can come from many sources outside and inside the building. Our technicians never mask odors or take shortcuts as these methods are ineffective.

Odor Identification

The first step is to identify the source of the smell and locate where the odor is contacting surfaces. Sometimes the odors originate from more than one location in the building.

Common Causes of Bad Odors

  • Dirty drains
  • Bacteria
  • Sewer systems
  • Dead animals in walls or crawl spaces
  • Garbage disposals
  • Rotten food

Odor Elimination Process

Once we identify the cause of the odor and determine the conditions where it contacts surfaces, the odor can often be removed over time without a trace. Our technicians use several odor removal products capable of thoroughly penetrating surfaces to neutralize unpleasant scents.

When your Plainfield home or commercial business has an odor issue and needs odor removal services, our local team in Plainfield and Naperville South is Here to Help. ® We’ll restore your odor problem “Like it never even happened.” Call us today at 630-369-9710.

Mold Infestation in Plainfield Business?

5/17/2021 (Permalink)

A water-stained ceiling panel is shown. We mitigate commercial mold damage in Will and Kendall counties.

Mold damage happens in Plainfield.

After the last rainstorm, we had a small water leak in the ceiling that went unnoticed until we started smelling a musty odor in the office. We saw a ceiling tile in the back of the building was water-stained, and when we took down the ceiling panel, we found it was covered in mold, along with other parts of the ceiling’s interior. Yuck!

Thankfully, one of our employees used SERVPRO® of Plainfield/Naperville South in the past for a mold problem, so we called them, and I’m glad we did. When they arrived, they assessed the situation and used an infrared camera to pinpoint the location of the water damage in the ceiling, and repaired the leak. They worked quickly to contain the mold by closing off the part of the building with the mold infestation, and then they began the remediation process to manage the situation. The SERVPRO technicians had the specialized training, equipment, and experience to mitigate and remediate the mold problem.

Mold Problem in Plainfield?

4/26/2021 (Permalink)

Mold is shown on a wall and ceiling. We respond to commercial damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Will and Kendall counties.

Mold happens.

Did you know that in the right conditions mold can develop in forty-eight hours? Many commercial businesses experience mold damage in the Spring as the weather becomes warmer. Mold is always present in the Earth’s atmosphere, and these microscopic spores float around, waiting for the optimum conditions to present themselves to land and colonize. Here are some more interesting facts about mold from our website:

  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

SERVPRO® of Plainfield/Naperville South has been helping Plainfield commercial businesses remediate mold damage for years. Our technicians have the specialized training and equipment to contain the mold infestation and remediate it to preloss condition.

Smoke-Damaged Building in Plainfield?

2/15/2021 (Permalink)

Smoke is billowing up inside a large commercial complex. We mitigate commercial smoke and fire damage in the Plainfield and Naperville areas.

Smoke Damage Happens

As soon as the smoke alarms inside the manufacturing building sounded, we went outside to our designated emergency zones to await further instructions. Thanks to the Plainfield Township Fire Department's quick response, the fire never had a chance to do major damage. The fire was contained to the utility closet, where a dusty electrical panel with some kinked wires caused the fire to ignite.

Even though the fire was contained, there was smoke, soot, and water left from the firefighting efforts that had to be cleaned up before we could become fully operational again. We called SERVPRO® of Plainfield/Naperville South and they sent a team of restoration technicians to mitigate the damage.

They extracted the water and set up air blowers and air movers to completely dry the area and cleaned the smoke and soot residue from the walls, floors, ceilings and light fixtures, and workstations, and neutralized the smoke odor. They were also able to supervise the repair of the electrical panel. Now you would never know there had ever been a fire!

Drenched at Work

I’ll never forget the time when one of our machines in the Plainfield warehouse caught on fire and sent flames up to the ceiling, causing the sprinklers to go off.

How to prepare an emergency kit for a severe storm in Plainfield

12/3/2020 (Permalink)

Plainfield is no stranger to severe storms. If a community is not prepared for a severe storm, the results can be devastating.  SERVPRO of Plainfield/Naperville South wants to share some of the following tips to keep in mind while putting together an emergency kit in the event of a severe storm approaching. FEMA has stated that emergency kits should include some of the following:

  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Any medicine currently being taken
  • Emergency food and water
  • Extra change of clothes and shoes
  • Pet supplies if you are taking care of an animal

These are just a few examples of what an emergency kit should contain. Residents can add whatever else may be needed. There should be an emergency kit in every residential building as well as all commercial buildings if possible. Aside from having an emergency kit ready, a plan should also be in place. If there is a designated storm area inside the home or office, occupants should head there with the emergency kits. Severe storms cannot be avoided, but with the right tools and resources, they can be easier to deal with.  SERVPRO of Plainfield/Naperville South wants to make sure your city is prepared!
