Commercial Graffati Removal

6/25/2020 (Permalink)

I am sure we all have been driving and see a huge boulder on the top of a hill or in a field that has been painted and painted over the years. Sometimes the message is in celebration of a graduation, professing love or just something to make people smile as they drive by like a smiley face. Those are fairly harmless.

However, in light of the recent events in the United States, unfortunately buildings that haven't been burned down have been temporarly destroyed from protestors spraying graffati all over buildings. The messages are terrible and are being removed gradually. 

Even though we are not in the Twin Cities, SERVPRO of Rochester has performed an incredible amount of graffati removal on commercial buildings during all times of the year. 

SERVPRO has an incredible line of cleaning products that their 2 full time chemists have created. There's an incredible graffati cleaner that we absolutely love. There is a process to graffati removal but well worth the time and money in preserving buildings.

We are here to help! 507-286-9170. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week even holidays. IICRC certified technicians are always ready.

The USFA, United States Fire Administration, conducted several studies. One study that was conducted over nine years gave them valuable insight into commercial fires. They found 3 main causes for commercial fires:

1. Electrical Equipment and Lighting: includes improperly wired, overloaded outlets, defective equipment,and lighting that overheats or sparks  which all cause fires.

What to do? Make sure all are up to date and up to code specifications. Don't overload outlets. Avoid power cords. 

2. HVAC Equipment: includes heating and air conditioning systems that overloaded, faulty wiring or has electrical issues all have an increased likelihood for fire.

What to do? Make sure the heating and air conditioning equipment is maintained regularly. Check wiring too. 

3. Cooking Equipment: in lunch room eating areas, restaurants, hospitals, and nursing homes. Fires are caused by food being cooked at high temperatures and gas and/or electric equipment. 

What to do? Make sure that the cooking equipment is maintained and that there is a fire extinguisher in each eating area.

Apartment Living

Many of us have lived in an apartment some time in our life. On the flip side, being an apartment owner is a huge responsibility. There are so many things to consider: insurance, the liability of having people coming and going, keeping up with ordinances, taxes and on and on the list goes. 

SERVPRO of Rochester has had a handful of commercial cleaning jobs lately.  The latest one was one where a tenant moved out after living in an apartment for ten years.  The tenant was a smoker. When we arrived the walls, ceiling, even light fixtures, refrigerator, and bathtub were a dark yellow, brownish color. 

SERVPRO of Rochester had our work cut out for us! We used SERVPRO cleaning products and were able to get the affected materials and areas back to their color. The owners were pleased with our work.  Don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of Rochester.
