Winter Weather Prevention Tips for Your Multnomah County Apartment Complex

12/12/2017 (Permalink)

Does your Gresham apartment complex suffer from the devastating effects of winter weather?

Are you prepared for the coming cold weather? Cold weather can have a huge impact on your property if you are not ready for it. From heavy rain and freezing temperatures to damaging winds, sleet, or snow, all can cause serious and costly property damage. While you cannot control the weather, you can take the sting out of winter weather.

To help prevent costly damages due to weather, consider taking the following precautions to protect your property before colder weather hits.

  • Check your business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Wind, heavy rain, ice, and snow can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property and potentially cause personal injuries.
  • Roofs, water pipes, and gutters should all be inspected to ensure they are in proper order. Gutter downspouts should be directed away from your building. Clear gutters of debris that may have gathered during the fall. Leaves and other obstructions can cause a damming effect, which can lead to roof damages and interior water
  • Inspect the property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential.
  • Inspect all handrails, stairwells, and entryways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces, and post caution signs where water could be present.
  • Protect water pipes from freezing by simply allowing water to drip when temperatures dip below freezing. If pipes are under a cabinet, leave the cabinet doors open, allowing warm inside air to circulate around the pipes. If the building has outdoor faucets, consider shutting water off at the main valve in the basement or crawl space. Once the valve is off, open the outdoor faucet to ensure it drains, preventing any remaining water from freezing in the pipe.

When winter weather strikes, call your local SERVPRO of Gresham to strike back!

Train Your Staff on Fire Safety in Your Gresham Business

11/21/2017 (Permalink)

Do you know what to do in the event of a fire in your business?

Why should you train your employees for fire safety? The hazards from fire can pose a significant threat to your business. Every year many people are injured by fires that occur in the workplace - and the financial costs of a fire can be equally devastating. In the event of a fire, the highest priority is always to get the occupants of the building out of harm’s way. Trained staff will provide the best chance for this to happen in a methodical and efficient manner.

When a fire breaks out and panic settles in, you don’t want to rely on your staff thinking or problem solving on the go. Instead, set up a plan that’s unique to your establishment, and have your staff practice it until it’s embedded into their minds and they can perform it on autopilot. Look into your local government agencies or fire departments to see if there are training's offered for your or your employees.

Watch Out for those Holiday Fire Starters in Your Wood Village Business

11/8/2017 (Permalink)

How many of these fire starters do you have in your establishment?

Ah, the holidays; A fun, cheery time of year! We string lights, decorate desks, and even set up trees in the office. Have you thought about where you place the tree in relation to a heat source? While it is fun to decorate for the holiday season, some of those decorations can cause a fire in your office! The following are common holiday fire starters that could be in your office:

  • Candles
  • Christmas Trees
  • String Lights
  • Extension Cords
  • Fireplaces

Keeping these types of decorations away from a heat source, checking for faulty wiring and keeping trees watered can reduce the potential for an office fire. The following are some tips to prevent fires in your office:

  • Keep decoration or flammable items at least three feet from open flames and heat sources
  • Inspect all decorations that use electricity for damage and discard damaged decorations
  • Never string together multiple extension cords or run extension cords under rugs, carpets, or furniture
  • Water live trees daily and remove the tree when the needles start to fall off

In the event of an office fire, remember to call SERVPRO of Gresham! We have the staff and equipment to make your disaster “Like it never even happened.”

Declutter Your Office Before the New Year - Tips From SERVPRO of Gresham to Get Organized!

12/16/2016 (Permalink)

Does your Multnomah County Office need some sprucing up? Here are a few tips to get you started!

 

  1. Get rid of what you don't need. We tend to think everything is important and needs to be kept. Go through all your stuff and ask yourself: Does this item have unnecessary multiples? Does it have a purpose? Is it outdated? Did you even remember you had it before you started your cleaning? Do you really need it? 
  2. Add more storage. Whether it's a shelving system or a filing cabinet, adding more storage to your office will give everything a place to go. Don't go overboard or else you might end up with even more clutter!
  3. Make sure everything has a place. If things don't have a place to go, they will likely end up cluttering up your desk. 
  4. Address your problem areas. Everyone has that drawer full of random stuff that has no where to go. Organize it by putting things in a more permanent home and adding some drawer dividers.
  5. Hide your cables. Cables are often a huge source of office clutter. Get rid of the problem by adding a cable box, zip tie your cords together, hide them with cord concealers and hide them behind a desk or other furniture when you can.
  6. File paperwork daily. How many times have you walked in to an office and to see stacks of un filed paperwork all over? It looks horrible and makes it hard to find anything. Make sure to file away paperwork every day to avoid this.
  7. Sort your desktop icons. Digital clutter can be just as bad as real life clutter. Put all the extra documents and pictures on your desktop into a folder. Put everything you don't need anymore into the "trash".
  8. Disinfect and and clean. With all the stuff we have to get done in a day, it's easy to forget about something like disinfecting your office.  Do it yourself or hire a professional to get rid of those lingering germs!

 

Whether its giving tips on how to declutter or providing 24/7 emergency services, SERVPRO of Gresham is here to help!
