Commercial building construction, 5 tips to know before you go

1. Check your options

The scale of any construction project demands a major commitment from a company. Remember that the time and energy invested in commercial building construction could also be put into the business itself.

2. Make the correct projections

A bank advisor can help you determine the cost of your project, how much money you'll need from start to finish and the right financing options for your build.

3. Make sure your building permits are in order

Be sure that you've satisfied all local rules with the right permit. Do this as early as possible, since building without a permit is not an option. Check with your city to see exactly what you're allowed to do with and without a permit.

4. Get a good architect

Good ones cost money and because of this some companies will sometimes skip the step of hiring a good architect. While you might think you're saving money up front, you will lose in the end because of problems not originally planned on .

5. Be realistic

Companies often lose business during construction projects because management is less focused on performance and too worried about the new building.

Bottom line is we can help. Call us today 843-236-6278

What to know before you begin exterior painting in Myrtle Beach

5/10/2021 (Permalink)

4 Things to think about when painting the exterior of your commercial building in Myrtle Beach:

1. Check the forecast -

Paint needs time to dry for maximum effectiveness. Make sure you paint your exterior when it is not the rainy season. (Good luck finding a dry stretch to paint the exterior in Myrtle Beach)

2. Now is not the time to get cheap -

Some things you can get the cheaper brand with but exterior paint is not one of them. Trying to go cheap and save yourself money now will cost you more in having to redo the painting sooner than you needed to.

3. Scratch the surface -

Paint likes smooth surfaces so make sure you sand down or scrape any rough patches or chips in your building’s exterior.

4. Primetime -

The rule of thumb has always been to apply a good coat of primer, sand, then apply your color coats. You could also use the paint and primer in one, either way make sure you prime your building.

Exterior Painting takes lots of time and needs to be done right, call SERVPRO and save yourself the hassle. 843-236-6278

What to do until help arrives: Vandalism Damage

4/8/2021 (Permalink)

Vandalism is a damage type that is often over looked by the normal property owner. This makes it even more difficult to deal with when your business is spray painted or damaged. Often times attempting to deal with vandalism yourself results in further damage to our building exterior. In order to avoid that additional damage SERVPRO has three things to do and not to do until your local franchise arrives.

DO:

  • Hose or wash egg damage from building exterior as soon as possible.
  • Vacuum glass particles from carpet and upholstery.
  • Save containers which could reveal the ingredients of spilled inks, cosmetics and paints.

DON'T

  • Attempt to remove ink, paint or cosmetic stains.
  • Operate damaged lamps or appliances.
  • Discard furniture wood chips, broken pieces from porcelain, furniture or art objects.

How Quickly Can Mold Grow in My Myrtle Beach Facility?

3/8/2021 (Permalink)

If you have water damage to your roof in Horry & Georgetown County, you are probably wondering if you will soon have black mold in your facility. The answer is probably yes if you don't take action right away to mitigate the damage. Here is some information about mold growth.

What Causes Mold To Grow?

Mold needs only a few ingredients to thrive:

  • Water
  • Oxygen
  • Food (organic material like wood)
  • Suitable temperature

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, once moisture from a ceiling leak begins to accumulate, black mold and other mold types can start growing in 24 to 48 hours. Mold spores are present in most environments and travel by air currents and water. They can also hitch a ride on clothing and fur. They can survive in conditions that don't support mold growth. Once they find moisture, it doesn't take long for them to settle in and thrive, forming colonies known as mycelium.

How Can I Prevent Mold Growth?

Once you know you have a roof leak in your building, act right away to identify the source and stop water from entering. A professional mold remediation company can help you by inspecting the damage and finding hidden sources of water. If mold is detected, technicians will isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers or negative air chambers. They will use vacuums and other specialized equipment to prevent the spread of mold spores.

If surfaces have been contaminated by mold, technicians will use antimicrobial and antifungal treatments to remove colonies. Any porous materials that are too damaged, such as carpeting or drywall, can be removed and replaced. If your facility needs significant repairs, areas can be remodeled and reconstructed.

If you suspect your facility's roof in Horry & Georgetown County has been compromised, it's best to call for help right away to prevent potential black mold damage.

Here's Why SERVPRO Can Handle Anything - Myrtle Beach 29572

1/25/2021 (Permalink)

When it comes to average-sized homes suffering water damage, local SERVPROs such as SERVPRO of Horry & Georgetown County are so familiar with handling the challenges that arise when dealing with the restoration process that we could probably do it with our eyes closed (don’t worry, we won’t). 

However, what about the challenges that come when restoring a 150,000 square foot facility following a disastrous fire? Or a 600,000 sq. ft. commercial building damaged by strong winds and storm damage. Or even a community that’s been devastated and destroyed after a hurricane. You know to call SERVPRO for your “contained” disasters. But who do you call when the world around you is turned upside down?

The answer is simple: it’s still SERVPRO

Yes, SERVPRO franchises are independently owned and operated, but when it comes to rebuilding cities and regions after extreme losses, we work together like a well-oiled machine. 

When hurricane season hits southernmost parts of the United States, when wildfires rage in California, or when cold fronts overwhelm the north, or even when your state of the art fire suppression system accidentally goes off in your facility, there is nothing we can’t handle. Call SERVPRO of Horry & Georgetown County for all your disaster needs, whether large or small; we have an army at our disposal.

8 Tips on how to use a pressure washer Pressure washer

8 Tips on how to use a pressure washer:

  1. Choose a pressure washer that is best for the job. Different housing materials can withstand various water pressures.
  2. Protect your house's exterior fixtures, like lights, landscaping shrubs and plants, from harmful water pressure. Cover with drop cloths or plastic covering.
  3. Manually scrub any visible dirt and grime from the surface you are power washing with a brush.
  4. Mix the cleaning solution and fill the pressure washer's soap dispenser.
  5. Connect a hose hooked to your water supply to the pressure washer.
  6. Test how close you have to be to pressure wash a house by holding the pressure washer nozzle with both hands about 3 feet from the wall. Walk it in closer until you feel the spray is strong enough to remove dirt but not cause any damage.
  7. Start at the top of the house and move down just like when you paint. 
  8. Rinse from the top down with plain water. Allow the house to dry at least 2 days before painting.

If this sounds like too much work just call SERVPRO, we will do it for you. 843-236-6278

How to make your Grand Strand area roof last longer. Part 1

5/12/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO can fix your roof!

You just had your storm damaged roof replaced by the awesome team at SERVPRO, so how are you going to keep it in great shape?

Unless you employ the use of a drone to fly above your home every day it is safe to say that your roof is not easy to see. Since you just spent all that precious time getting your roof replaced, you might want to take a few proactive steps to ensure its longevity.

The first area to concentrate should be routine inspections.

INSPECTIONS:

Try to inspect your roof regularly and especially after a storm. If you wait to see pieces of shingle or leaks inside your home it could be too late for a quick fix.

Make it a quarterly event to get up on a ladder and take a look around to see how things are holding up. If possible and if you are comfortable with it and can do so safely it might be beneficial to even walk around on the roof a bit to see if there are any soft spots and to get an idea of the condition.

If you do not feel up for the job call us here at SERVPRO and we can come out and inspect it for you and inform you on the best possible plan of action.

Tame those unruly branches!

You just had your Storm Damaged roof replaced by the awesome team at SERVPRO, so how are you going to keep it in great shape?

The second suggestion we have to keep your roof in tip-top shape has to do with the greenage around your home or business.

TREES AND BUSHES:

Landscaping definitely adds beauty and curb appeal to your home but if the trees and bushes are tall and close to your home that beauty might not be worth the hassle.

If a tree has overhanging branches they can cause damage in the wild Coastal storms when they hit your roof. They can tear up shingles and break your gutters. They can also give animals like squirrels to get up on your roof and make nests or burrow into your home!

Cutting back trees and bushes will allow your roof to survive a little bit longer in harsh conditions.

If you need help with your roof repair give SERVPRO a shout today! 843-236-6278 | 843-436-2121

4 More Things to Think About When Painting The Exterior Of Your Horry or Georgetown County Building

It is exterior paint season again!

4 More Things to Think About When Painting The Exterior Of Your Horry or Georgetown County Home ...

A few years ago we gave you 4 things to think about when painting the exterior of your Horry or Georgetown County commercial building. Now that we are into a full blown building boom again, we figured we would give you four more things to think about when painting exteriors.

  1. Consider getting a pressure wash. All of the past years' dirt, pollen and old paint should be set free of the exterior before you begin painting.
  2. Make sure the caulking and seals around doors and windows are still good and free of chips gaps or cracks. You do not want caulk ruining your new exterior paint job.
  3. Do a pre-paint inspection walkthrough. You do not want to get halfway done and find problems that need to be addressed, it helps to plan ahead.
  4. Tape off the windows. As with any paint job the painting of your exterior commercial building should not be any different, tape off those windows!

Don't drop the ball when it comes to picking up the pieces!

Your offices are prime real estate for disasters!

Imagine that you work on the first floor of a large building such as an office building with many offices for insurances, brokers, medical groups, banks, whatever the case may be. Everybody leaves for the day, let's pretend it's a Friday.  Yay, Friday is finally here!  Everybody leaves for the weekend, the entire office building is secure.  

On the top floor in one of the kitchens/breakrooms, the hose to the ice maker springs a leak.  Maybe the plastic hose split.

Document Restoration Services Myrtle Beach

2/6/2017 (Permalink)

We can save your records and paperwork after a disaster.

Who can restore important documents and paperwork for medical records or legal proceedings in Myrtle Beach?

SERVPRO can!

SERVPRO uses a process called Sublimation when saving your important documents. What we do is first stabilize your records by freezing them and then inventory or cataloging takes place.

The actual process of sublimation is a freeze drying procedure that causes the ice in the frozen documents to convert directly to vapor using a combination of temperature control and pressure. The vapor is then immediately extracted which allows the vapor to bypass the liquid state and ensures your document will be dry.

Most documents will never look brand new again, but the document restoration service SERVPRO provides does produce a usable document that can then be restored or filed and reused in its original capacity.

For your document restoration needs in Myrtle Beach, call SERVPRO today! 843-236-6278

Summer Office Declutter Check

6/27/2016 (Permalink)

Clean desks lead to more productivity, more productivity leads to raises, raises lead to island vacations!

Put Some Clean In Your Summer 

Tips and tricks to help declutter your office.      

Divide Your Workplace Into Zones: Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions. You may require a workspace for your computer, a library area for your research, a storage area for supplies and a filing area for your archives. This will provide a foundation for a more efficient use of space.

Keep Only What You Need At Arm's Length: Boxes of pens, stacks of papers and old coffee cups need to go. Rid your desk of visual clutter by paring down the items on top to the essentials only. Supplies, paperwork and personal items should be kept in the zones you've established for them.

Create A Daily Paper System: Consider creating hanging files or baskets labeled "To Read", "To Do", and "To File". Establish set days for each, so that you don't get behind or feel the overwhelming need to do everything at once.

Sort Your Catch-All Drawer: Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, like compartments for paperclips and rubber bands. Go through the drawer every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn't being used.

Eliminate Digital Clutter: Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter. Organize digital files and your e-mail inbox just as you would paper files - with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders. Also, keep the icons on your desktop to a bare minimum, and trade in sticky notes on your monitor for calendar reminders.

Disinfect Regularly: Prevent the buildup of dust, dirt, food stains and fingerprints. Wipe down your desk, phone, keyboard and monitor once a week with disinfecting wipes.

    Commercial Building Services take alot of planning, we can help.

    Commercial building construction, 5 tips to know before you go

    1. Check your options

    The scale of any construction project demands a major commitment from a company. Remember that the time and energy invested in commercial building construction could also be put into the business itself.

    2. Make the correct projections

    A bank advisor can help you determine the cost of your project, how much money you'll need from start to finish and the right financing options for your build.

    3. Make sure your building permits are in order

    Be sure that you've satisfied all local rules with the right permit. Do this as early as possible, since building without a permit is not an option. Check with your city to see exactly what you're allowed to do with and without a permit.

    4. Get a good architect

    Good ones cost money and because of this some companies will sometimes skip the step of hiring a good architect. While you might think you're saving money up front, you will lose in the end because of problems not originally planned on .

    5. Be realistic

    Companies often lose business during construction projects because management is less focused on performance and too worried about the new building.

    Bottom line is we can help. Call us today 843-236-6278

    Exterior Pressure Wash Myrtle Beach

    2/16/2016 (Permalink)

    Messing with soap and hard water can be difficult, let us do it for you!

    8 Tips on how to use a pressure washer:

    1. Choose a pressure washer that is best for the job. Different housing materials can withstand various water pressures.
    2. Protect you house's exterior fixtures, like lights, landscaping shrubs and plants, from harmful water pressure. Cover with drop cloths or plastic covering.
    3. Manually scrub any visible dirt and grime from the surface you are power washing with a brush.
    4. Mix the cleaning solution and fill the pressure washer's soap dispenser.
    5. Connect a hose hooked to your water supply to the pressure washer.
    6. Test how close you have to be to pressure wash a house by holding the pressure washer nozzle with both hands about 3 feet from the wall. Walk it in closer until you feel the spray is strong enough to remove dirt but not cause any damage.
    7. Start at the top of the house and move down just like when you paint. 
    8. Rinse from the top down with plain water. Allow the house to dry at least 2 days before painting.

    If this sounds like too much work just call SERVPRO, we will do it for you. 843-236-6278

    Exterior Painting Myrtle Beach

    2/16/2016 (Permalink)

    We will paint your commercial building for you!

    4 Things to think about when painting the exterior of your commercial building in Myrtle Beach:

    1. Check the forecast -

    Paint needs time to dry for maximum effectiveness. Make sure you paint your exterior when it is not the rainy season. (Good luck finding a dry stretch to paint the exterior in Myrtle Beach)

    2. Now is not the time to get cheap -

    Some things you can get the cheaper brand with but exterior paint is not one of them. Trying to go cheap and save yourself money now will cost you more in having to redo the painting sooner than you needed to.

    3. Scratch the surface -

    Paint likes smooth surfaces so make sure you sand down or scrape any rough patches or chips in your building’s exterior.

    4. Primetime baby -

    The rule of thumb has always been to apply a good coat of primer, sand, then apply your color coats. You could also use the paint and primer in one, either way make sure you prime your building.

    Exterior Painting takes lots of time and needs to be done right, call SERVPRO and save yourself the hassle. 843-236-6278
