2021’s hurricane season caught many New Jersey business owners off guard, forcing them to shut down for extended periods. Unfortunately, as many as 50% of businesses may never reopen after suffering a disaster.

Advantages of Commercial Sprinkler Systems
In the event of a fire, commercial sprinkler systems respond automatically to control the flame
A sprinkler system is a network of concealed pipes that supplies water to sprinkler heads located throughout a building. In the event of a fire, the system responds automatically to control the flame. Each sprinkler head will pump out about 25 gallons of water per minute.
Although sprinkler systems are an essential safety measure in commercial properties, some property managers believe they do more harm than good. A common misconception is that they exacerbate property damage by causing unnecessary flooding. In fact, automated fire sprinklers substantially mitigate property damage and loss!
According to NFPA, fire damage in structures with fire sprinklers is reduced by approximately 71%. That’s because fires in structures with automatic sprinkler systems are contained to the room of origin 97% of the time. Containing a fire is key to minimizing its destruction. By comparison, a fire that has spread throughout a building will require many thousands of gallons of water to extinguish.

Vandalism Aftermath: Where to Start.
Having your business vandalized is a devastating experience. SERVPRO of Burlington & Mt. Holly is here to set you on the road to recovery. Here’s where to start:
Your top priority is the physical well-being of you and your employees. Stay away from broken glass or damaged areas that could result in injury.
Contact the police as soon as possible. Start the paperwork necessary to report damages. Insurance companies often require official police reports for vandalism claims, making your call an essential step in unlocking your coverage.
Call your insurer to start an insurance claim for the damages. Your representative will walk you through the process of filing a claim, including documents you’ll need to gather and what you can expect as far as coverage.
Take photos or video of any damage you can safely observe. This will provide your insurance company with thorough documentation. Include evidence of structural damage, like broken windows or holes in the wall, as well as broken inventory and commercial vehicles.
Collect the names and contact information of any witnesses to the vandalization. Ask them to write down or record what they saw. Pass this information along to the police and your insurance claims agent in case they need testimony or further details later.
Keep a written version of your losses by recording any property or merchandise that’s missing, ruined or damaged. Include the type of loss — for instance, fire or theft. Take inventory to catalogue what’s left and compare it to any records you might have compiled before the break-in. You can provide your claims representative or insurance adjuster with a copy of this inventory.
Setting your business back on track requires the difficult task of cleaning up and protecting your property from further damage. That's where SERVPRO comes in. We provide expert cleanup & repairs, all while working with your insurance to ensure your business gets back to running smoothly.
Large Water Damage @ NJ Rental Property
One of our technicians carefully removes the saturated carpet.
Substantial damage was caused by a sink overflow on the second floor of this rental property in Willingboro, New Jersey. The entire ground floor was deeply saturated, including the ceiling, walls and floors. Within a few days, mold growth covered the entire bathroom ceiling. In situations like this, hefty demolition is required.
A few things need to happen before the drying process can begin. First, all personal belongings must be carefully removed, inventoried and stored. Next, waterlogged materials are torn out and disposed of. Due to the substantial amount of damage, the demolition process will last several days. Finally, drying equipment will be placed to prevent mold growth.
Once demolition and drying are complete, we’re ready to begin the restoration process! Beforehand, our on-staff contractor will visit the site to provide the property owner with a precise cost breakdown. Then this property will be restored to its original condition!
Mold in Rental Units
Don't let mold harm your tenants. SERVPRO of Burlington & Mt. Holly provides mold testing & mitigation for rental spaces.
Under common law, landlords are obligated to maintain their rental property in a habitable condition. This means the building must be safe to live in. If the rental space develops a mold infestation, the landlord may be liable for injury or damage sustained by the tenants due to the mold.
Not all mold is dangerous to our health. It takes an expert to know whether a particular mold is harmful or just annoying. That’s where we come in. We have the capability to determine the specific type of mold. Once the mold type is determined, we have the tools and chemicals to safely remove and mitigate the damage.
A smart landlord will try to prevent the conditions that lead to the growth of mold in the first place. This requires maintaining the structural integrity of the property, including the roof, plumbing, and windows. If preventative measures fail and mold damage occurs, SERVPRO of Burlington & Mt. Holly is here to help.
