Disasters In Hotels

10/12/2021 (Permalink)

Hotels in Newport News are a vital component to the infrastructure of the entire area, helping tourism to continue to be as prevalent and steady as ever. With the massive structures that many of these accommodations are, a single disaster or emergency can spread over a broad area in a brief time. Incidents like fire loss offer multiple levels of damaging effects that can move far beyond the ignition point and can be a devastating force for multiple rooms in your hotel.

Structural concerns are most often the priority for addressing fire damage in your Newport News lodging. With experts with extensive training in fire and smoke damage restoration and recovery, as well as education in the modern approaches for deodorization and fire residue removal, our SERVPRO staff on site is knowledgeable and confident in work to get done. In most cases, containment of the effects is critical because even after extinguishment occurs, soot/smoke residues and carcinogens can continue to spread throughout the building.

Containment strategies for our SERVPRO professionals often come down to our advanced equipment like our generators, air scrubbers, and other physical barriers. Plastic sheeting can often be a literal hindrance for airborne particulates and contaminants from reaching other areas of the hotel. With these effects limited to a specific space, our contracting division can get to work on controlled demolition and fire debris removal.

One of the risks of fire effects in your area hotel is how easily certain conditions like harsh odors can pass through construction materials and structural elements. The longer that your business goes without the appropriate preventative actions like the use of ozone machines, the more widespread and overwhelming these symptoms can become. A significant spread of these effects compromises not only your ability to offer rooms to potential guests but can affect your overall reputation with current customers.

Fire loss can produce multiple damaging effects that can spread quickly through your hotel. Our SERVPRO of Newport News team can help. Give us a call anytime disaster strikes at (757) 244-8467

During Hurricane Idas' landfall places that don't usually experience storm damage got a ton of damage. Subways being filled with water, houses flooded, and so much more.

What's the point of a Containment?

Mold Containment Give us a call at 757-244-8467

SERVPRO® of Newport News is asked many times why placing a Containment is important and if it's really necessary.  Well the answer is Yes! Containments are very important and can play a huge role in Fire, Water and Mold Damage Restoration Losses.   

A Containment is placed to control the environment, minimize the work space and/or to keep something that can potentially be harmful under control and to avoid cross contamination.  In most cases Containments are placed to block the affected areas from the unaffected areas which stops the spread of any further contamination.  

Containment's are placed by using thick plastic sheeting with the assistance of tension/support poles or wooden frames and strong tape. The Containment's are usually placed around doors, openings, stairwells or even to divide rooms. 

It is recommended that no one enters through the Containments once set up and in place!
