The Best Way to Reduce Business Interruption Following a Disaster is to Plan For it NOW.

As many as 50% of businesses may never recover following a disaster, according to the latest industry research. Of the businesses that survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind. By developing a SERVPRO® Emergency READY Profile for your business, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation and can help minimize how water and fire damage can affect your business.

  • A concise Profile Document that contains only the critical information needed in the event of an emergency. – It will only take a little time to complete and will not take you away from current projects. But it will save a lot of time if ever needed.
  • A guide to help you get back into your building following a disaster. – This can help minimize the amount of time your business is inactive by having an immediate plan of action.

Asbestos Removal In Central Illinois

General Asbestos Removal In Central Illinois Asbestos Abatement In Central Illinois

For Your Central Illinois Property, SERVPRO Can Ensure Asbestos Abatement

When your home or business has been damaged by water, worries intensify if the structure includes materials containing asbestos. Many popular materials used to build, remodel and repair homes, particularly before the 1970s, may be manufactured with asbestos integral within the items or as a fire resistant coating. The long fibers of asbestos are a potential health hazard when airborne; SERVPRO technicians assess the possibility of exposure to this substance at every step in the process of fire and water restoration.

Some of the services we provide while inspecting and planning may have a low risk of spreading asbestos in central Illinois while others may raise serious concerns of significant movement of the fibers throughout your home environment. We are trained to follow federal protocols when dealing with asbestos.
Flooding, rain, and storms can bring significant moisture into the ceilings, walls, and flooring of your home. These items, as well as the insulation and ductwork that keep your home's interior comfortable frequently, contain asbestos. The adhesives holding tiles to a subfloor as well as roofing materials and window putties and glazing that may have tumbled into your home after a storm or other disaster also pose an asbestos risk. If the structural components are so water damaged that they cannot be restored it is possible that asbestos removal will be required and we are experts. Discovering that your water damage has now led to potential asbestos contamination is very stressful for you, the homeowner, and we are committed to guiding and supporting you at this difficult time. 
As we work together on your water restoration process, the goal will be to ensure that the finished product brings your home back to its preloss condition without exposing you or your family to hidden risks because of asbestos on the premises. SERVPRO can handle the complexities of water damage that evolve into an asbestos abatement action while always focusing on restoring both your home and your peace of mind. After the asbestos is gone our staff will use experience and industry standards to bring your house back better than before, "Like it never even happened."
When the unexpected is complicated by preexisting risks like asbestos SERVPRO of Bloomington / Gibson City / S. McLean County stands ready to help with Asbestos Abatement. Call us at 309-827-7500 - 24/7 to set your complete recovery from disaster in motion.
