Smoke from a fire billows out of an apartment building. We are leaders in commercial property damage in Raleigh County.

Fire damage is a common and devastating form of commercial property damage. It occurs when a fire breaks out within or near a commercial building, resulting in destruction to the structure, contents, and potentially neighboring properties. Fires can start due to various reasons, such as electrical faults, arson, or accidents.

The damage caused by fires includes charred and weakened structural elements, smoke damage, water damage from firefighting efforts, and the loss of valuable equipment, inventory, and important documents. Recovery from fire damage often requires extensive repairs, renovation, and the replacement of damaged items. Additionally, businesses may face downtime, loss of revenue, and the challenge of rebuilding their reputation.

Does Your Business in Beckley Have a Space Heater Use Policy?

1/10/2023 (Permalink)

A space heater is warming an office. We respond to commercial property damage emergencies 24 hours a day in Raleigh County.

More heating equipment fires occur during the cold winter months than at any other time of the year. This makes sense as we spend more time indoors and use heating equipment more often. Our local team in Beckley offers these space heater safety tips for the workplace from Travelers Insurance:

Employers without a formal policy prohibiting space heaters should provide guidelines for safe use.

  • Use of space heaters should not be allowed unless supervisor or management approval is provided before use
  • Units that have been listed or labeled by a nationally recognized testing laboratory such as UL (Underwriters Laboratories), CSA (Canadian Standards Association), or ETL (Intertek) should be the only space heaters permitted for use
  • Keep at least 36 inches of clearance around every space heater and only use them in areas free of flammable liquids and easily ignited or combustible materials
  • Proper placement of the space heater is essential. Be sure it is not in a high-traffic area or where it may become a tripping hazard.
  • If using an electric space heater, ensure electrical cords and plugs are not frayed or damaged. Always plug the heater directly into the wall outlet, and be sure the power cord is not crossing a walkway. Never use extension cords or power strips, as these could overheat and lead to a fire.
  • Be sure space heaters are never left unattended. They should be turned off when the employee leaves the room or area of the heater and unplugged at the end of the day.

Frozen water pipes can be seen outside a commercial property. We restore commercial property damage 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

Our local team in Beckley responds to commercial water damage emergencies in Shady Spring 24-hours a day. During the winter, freezing temperatures can cause pipes to freeze. Here are some tips from the Insurance Institute of Business and Home Safety for preventing pipes from freezing:

  • Inspect and seal or repair all cracks, holes, leaks, windows, doors, and other openings on exterior walls with caulk or insulation to prevent cold air from penetrating the wall cavity 
  • Insulate and seal around attic penetrations such as partition walls, vents, plumbing stacks, and electric and mechanical chases 
  • Ensure your pipes in hard-to-reach places like attics, crawl spaces, and outside walls are insulated—wrap pipes and faucets in unheated or minimally heated areas of the building 
  • Make sure your existing freeze-protection devices and alarms are in good working order. Test freeze stats (low-temperature sensing device) and valves before the weather gets cold. 
  • Pipes leading to the exterior should be shut off and drained at the start of winter. If these exterior faucets do not have a shut-off valve inside the building, have one installed by a plumber.  
  • Hire a licensed fire protection specialist to conduct routine maintenance on your sprinkler system. Discuss the system's exposure to winter weather and potential mitigation options.

How Can I Protect My Building in Beckley From Water Intrusion Problems?

A clean and water tight commercial flat roof is shown. We respond to commercial water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Raleigh County!

Our local team in Beckley responds to more water damage emergencies than any other form of commercial property damage each year in the Beckley area. Here are some tips for protecting your business from water intrusion from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety:

Inspect and clean the roof drainage system

  • Do this at least twice a year, ideally during spring and fall. This includes all gutters, interior drains, and scuppers.

Trim trees, remove debris, inspect roof drains and make repairs as needed. Re-check drainage systems often.

Check for water

  • Check for long-term standing water in gutters and correct any blockages. If there are no blockages but standing water still occurs, ensure the gutter is properly sloped to the downspout.

Check the slope of the roof cover system

  • For low-slope roofs, ensure the slope of the roof cover system and the insulation boards divert water to internal drains when present or to the edge of the roof. Long-term standing water is an indication of an improper slope.

Check downspouts

  • Ensure downspouts funnel water away from the building and do not allow water to accumulate near the building’s perimeter.

Up-size gutters

  • When replacing gutters, consider larger-sized gutters which allow for greater flow.

Commercial Construction Cleaning Services in Beckley?

7/16/2021 (Permalink)

A crew is cleaning the outside of a building. We provide a full range of specialty cleaning services for businesses in Raleigh County.

Beckley businesses need to know.

Although we are better known for our fire and water damage emergency cleanup and restoration services, we also provide a full range of commercial cleaning services that exceed the scope of a routine janitorial service.

One of the specialty cleaning services that SERVPRO® of Beckley offers is construction site cleaning. This type of cleaning is done once all of the construction and finish work has been completed and the structure is ready to be staged or ready for furniture and or equipment installation. There is often a lot of drywall dust and other construction residues that will require professional cleaning before the final walkthrough.

Our technicians are required to undergo initial and continuous education and training. They are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration (IICRC), the nonprofit certifying body for the cleaning and restoration industry. We will come in and clean the structure from top to bottom, including walls, windows, floors, appliances, light fixtures, doors, vents, and millwork. All of the construction dust will be removed, and you will be left with a beautifully cleaned structure.

Call Us Today!

When your Beckley commercial business needs construction cleanup or any of our other deep cleaning services, SERVPRO® of Beckley has a team of highly trained and certified restoration technicians available ready to respond to your call. Call us today at 304-253-6633.

Mold Outbreak in Beckley Business?

6/21/2021 (Permalink)

Mold is showing growing on a brick wall. We respond to commercial mold damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

SERVPRO® of Beckley responds to commercial mold damage emergencies throughout the year in Beckley and we know that once mold becomes visible, it will spread quickly to other areas if it is not mitigated and remediated quickly. When the right moist and warm conditions present themselves, microscopic mold spores will land and quickly colonize, and the infestation can become visible in as little as 24 to 48 hours. Here is some information about mold from our website:

Understanding Mold

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed, or the mold may return
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, on clothes and pets, or air conditioning and heating systems
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth
  • Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent to discourage mold growth

Call Us Today!

When you require commercial mold mitigation and remediation services in Beckley, SERVPRO® of Beckley has a team of highly trained and certified restoration technicians on-call 24-hours a day to respond to your call. Call us today at 304-253-6633.

A colorful breakroom in an office building is shown. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

Beckley Breakroom Blues

Over the weekend the water supply line in our office breakroom in Beckley failed, leaving the breakroom covered in an inch of water. Fortunately, the janitorial service noticed it and called me at home. SERVPRO® of Beckley came out right away, assessed the situation, and immediately began the cleanup and restoration process.

Advanced Technology

The technicians brought in powerful water extraction equipment and removed the water from the floor and hallway. Once the bulk of the water was removed, they set up industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers to remove the remaining moisture from the ceiling, walls, floors, and furniture. They documented the drying process and returned the area to normal moisture levels.

Because of their fast response time we were able to avoid a more costly and time-consuming repair. By the time every one returned to work on Monday, you would never know there had been a tiny lake in the breakroom!

Sewage Spill in Beckley Business?

2/15/2021 (Permalink)

A sparkling clean bathroom complex inside a commercial building is shown. We provide a full range of specialty cleaning services for Raleigh County businesses!

Causes of Sewage Spills and Backups

Walking into a public restroom facility in Beckley with a sewage backup is never a good look for a commercial business, as the condition of the restrooms is a direct reflection of the business, and sewage spills can be health hazards. Sewage backups happen for many reasons. Some examples are:

  • Blockages due to tree roots
  • Broken or collapsed sewer lines
  • Septic tank obstructions
  • City sanitary mainline obstructions

Regardless of the cause of the sewage spill, when you need immediate help dealing with an emergency of this nature, SERVPRO® of Beckley is ready to respond 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

Highly Trained Team

Cleanup in Room 222

The altercation took place sometime after midnight in my Beckley hotel. Guests in the adjacent rooms called the front desk to report people arguing and some loud crashing sounds. When the police arrived, the room was empty, but it was a total mess and looked like a war zone. The amount of cleaning and restoration required went beyond what the hotel maids were capable of doing.

I called  SERVPRO® of Beckley and they sent a team out to immediately begin the cleanup and restoration process. They cleaned up and removed all the broken glass and then cleaned the walls and ceiling, the carpets and upholstery, the windows, and the bathroom and bathroom floor. After the room was completely cleaned, they sanitized and deodorized the room. By the time the sun was rising, the room was restored to preloss condition.

Control Moisture to Help Stop Mold Growth in Beckley

1/14/2021 (Permalink)

Condensation and Mold in Beckley

There are many different kinds of mold. EVERY SINGLE ONE needs moisture to grow.

Mold doesn’t need a storm or flood. Even a tiny bit of dampness is enough for mold.

Have you seen condensed water on the inside of a window? Have you noticed water droplets near the shower?  That water is more than enough for mold to start growing.

SERVPRO of Beckley wants you to know: if you control moisture, you control mold.

Control Moisture:

  • Clean spills or leaks quickly. Mold can start growing within 24 hours
  • Make sure roof gutters are in good shape
  • Don’t let water collect around the house foundation
  • Don’t let water collect in the air-conditioner drip pans
  • Keep drains clear
  • Indoor humidity should be under 40%
  • Wipe condensation from windows, pipes, or walls

SERVPRO of Beckley offers these suggestions:

  • Use exhaust fans
  • Use air conditioners and/or dehumidifiers. Low humidity reduces condensation
  • Use the bathroom fan when you shower
  • Appliances should vent to the outside. Even stoves, washers, and dryers produce water vapor

SERVPRO of Beckley  has ideas on reducing condensation:

  • Increase air movement
    • Open doors & windows
    • Use fans
  • Insulate cold surfaces like water pipes
  • Keep  the temperature comfortable

Cleaning Smoke and Soot Damage in Beckley

1/10/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Beckley can clean up damage from smoke and soot in your Beckley property.   

Smoke is a mixture of gases and small particles. The small particles are also called ash, and they include soot. Soot is the collection of particles left from incomplete burning of products that contain carbon. These products include wood and coal. Smoke and soot do not destroy materials the way fire does. They leave behind greasy films and have an unpleasant odor.

Smoke moves from warmer areas to cooler areas. You will find smoke and soot damage on the ceiling above where the fire started, but you will find the damage in other places. SERVPRO of Beckley looks for damage in/on:

  • Outside walls and windows: Even if the fire was in the center of the room, smoke travels to the cooler areas
  • Closed-off spaces: Smoke and soot settle in cooler areas, including dresser drawers, closed closets, and wall cavities
  • Air ducts: smoke and soot travel throughout the house
  • Drapes and blinds. The drapes and blinds are cooler than other parts of the house. During a fire, the areas behind the drapes and blinds are cooler than the rest of the room. Remember that smoke travels to the cooler areas, leaving behind smoke and soot.

SERVPRO of Beckley investigates these areas to get a good idea of what kind of damage is in the Beckley building.  

SERVPRO of Beckleyis independently owned and operated.

OSHA Guidelines for Fire Extinguisher Usage in Beckley

12/15/2020 (Permalink)

fire extinguishers SERVPRO of Beckley is Here To Help.

SERVPRO® of Beckley knows that owning a fire extinguisher is not enough. Knowing the proper use of fire extinguishers can prevent fire from destroying lives in Beckley.

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) requires that employers train their employees how and when to use fire extinguishers. OSHA does not allow untrained employees to use a fire extinguisher.  They must provide the training shortly after the employee is hired, and then every year thereafter. OSHA also requires monthly inspections for fire extinguishers.

Fire extinguishers have to be placed where they cannot be moved or damaged. The carrying handle should be 3-1/2 to 5 feet above the floor.

Employees must know when to use fire extinguishers.

SERVPRO of Beckley suggests asking yourself these questions regarding fire extinguishers in your Beckley  business:  

  • Have I pulled the fire alarm?
  • Can everyone get out?
  • Is the fire extinguisher easy to reach?
  • Do I know how to use it? 
  • Is the fire contained in a small area?
  • Is the smoke non-toxic?
  • Do I have an escape route?

If you can answer “yes” to all of the questions, it is reasonable to use the fire extinguisher.



SERVPRO of Beckley reminds you that fire is fast. If you cannot contain it within 30 seconds, get everyone out of the area. Call 9-1-1 once you are outside.

SERVPRO of Beckley is independently owned and operated.

Drastic temperature changes caused damage to a Condo at a Ski Resort

8/28/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO equipment placed in the hallway on top of the sub-flooring Dehumidifier and Air movers are setup to dry one area of this condo at Snowshoe.

On Monday January 21st the temperature at Snowshoe Resort averaged 13 degrees which is typical for this Ski Resort. Non-typically 4 days later on Thursday, the average rose to 51 degrees accompanied with rain. The sudden warming and rain turned the snow on a rooftop into slush that created a drain blockage similar to an Ice dam.

The water that backed up behind the slush leaked into a vacation rental causing damage to the ceiling, insulation, walls, and floors. After tearing out wet drywall, insulation, and flooring the equipment was set up and monitored until the drying was completed.   

The owner of the condo was concerned that he would not be able to get all the work done before Ski season was over and he would lose revenue until the following season. After we finished, his contractor immediately started the rebuild and he was able to rent out the condo much quicker than expected.

Safety Tips for Commercial Building Owners:

8/23/2019 (Permalink)

Strip Mall in Beaver Mall Strip Mall in Beaver WV houses a variety of businesses including an Antique Store.

Owning commercial property can be financially rewarding but you must stay on top of the maintenance to protect your building and tenants. Hire a dependable maintenance company or supervisor that will do inspections on a regular basis for each unit you own. Provide them with a detailed list that includes intervals of the things you require them to inspect.

The inspections are primarily done to protect your investment but also will ensure your facility will pass State, County, or City building inspections. Check with your local authority for a listing that will more than likely include:

Both the Fire Alarm and Sprinkler systems must be tested and serviced annually.

Fire Extinguishers are visible and are not expired.

Circuit breaker panels and junction boxes aren’t covered.

Exit doors are easily accessible and emergency lights are working properly.

Walkways especially stairways are not obstructed

Dishwasher hose outlet in a Summersville apartment destroyed by a mouse.

SERVPRO of Beckley has seen a lot of water damage from different sources. From plumbing problems, natural disasters, HVAC’s, and appliance malfunctions just to name a few. Occasionally we have some jobs that are definitely not your typical damage.

A property manager at an apartment complex near Summersville contacted us for water damage repairs. They told us there was a problem with a dishwasher that had malfunctioned. We arrived on site and began to remove the dishwasher but discovered that the appliance wasn’t the cause!

Keep in mind that a lot of people in WV live in the country. To enjoy the peace and quiet we have to be willing to occasionally deal with those pesky field mice that may leave the field and get inside our homes. What we found the cause of the leak to be was that a mouse had chewed small holes through the hose outlet.

Water mitigation was performed, hose outlet replaced, and the dishwasher was re-installed after the re-construction was completed. 

Look at the before and after pictures “Mitigation AND Reconstruction job performed at Summersville apartment” for the beginning and end of this water job

How an Emergency Ready Plan can potentially prevent additional damages

5/21/2018 (Permalink)

TOMORROW WILL MAKE ONE YEAR SINCE DISASTER STRUCK A SENIOR COMPLEX IN HINTON, WV

On May 22, 2017 at approximately 3:30 PM on the 5th floor of “Hinton House” a fire broke out in one of the apartments.  The Hinton Fire Department along with Summers County and Jumping Branch-Nimitz Volunteer Fire Departments responded to fight the fire. Through their efforts and the sprinkler system that activated, the fire damage was contained to the one unit, saving housing for at least 100 of our seniors. 

Residents did have to be “temporally” displaced due to major water damage caused mainly by the sprinkler system.  It is estimated that approximately 45 minutes passed after the fire was extinguished before the sprinkler shut off valve could be located. 

Don’t let an unmarked sprinkler shut off valve be the cause of major damage to your facility. SERVPRO of Beckley offers a “NO COST” assessment for all government, educational, multi-residential and commercial buildings.  The SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile serves as a quick reference to all utility shut offs and important contact information.

Call SERVPRO of Beckley at 304-253-6633 for a No Cost Assessment of your facility!

Ducts sometimes = dust, dirt, odors & contaminants

4/9/2018 (Permalink)

This is the condition of duct work we found in a commercial building

Business owners - do you lease or own your commercial building?

Do you know how long it has been since the HVAC System was installed in your building? 

Are odors and contaminants such as mold and irritating dust being distributed all over your building?

Has your facility been in a circumstance involving fire, smoke or suspected mold growth?

If you don’t have good answers to these questions, call SERVPRO of Beckley for more information about the Duct Cleaning Process we can do to improve your indoor air quality.

We can help remediate bacteria, fungi, and mold. Reduce potential for mold growth, restore peak energy efficiency and eliminate offensive odors. The written inspections and estimates are free.

Keeping your system at peak condition can extend the life span of the equipment.

Say What? Wet paper can be saved?

Accidents do happen even in the most unlikely places

Water intrusion in your home or business not only damages the structure and contents, there may be substantial damage to your documents and photos.

Not everybody lives in the age of technology where documents, books, and pictures are digitized. Some of us still have filing cabinets, book shelves, and photo albums. If I were faced with having to discard my most precious memories and legal documents it would be more devastating than the damage to my home.

SERVPRO has the resources to dry, clean, sterilize, deodorize, and digitize documents.  I never imaged wet paper could be saved until I witnessed it after a medical facility contacted us to save some of their patient records that had accidentally gotten wet.

Don’t worry about losing your large format items either. We have the resources to provide “Document Restoration” to Hospitals, Law firms, Engineering Firms, Libraries, and Government buildings.

Bob Evans Restaurant Fire in 2016

3/16/2018 (Permalink)

We applaud businesses that put employees and patrons health and safety first.

A fire in the kitchen at Bob Evans closed the doors of this restaurant in Fayetteville. WV in 2016.  Thankfully no one was injured but the closure had an instant effect on employees and customers.

Bob Evans Managers knew they had to take prompt action to re-open as soon as possible to eliminate lost revenue and lost wages.

We assessed the facility finding there was smoke damage not only in and around the kitchen area but throughout the entire building. The ceiling, walls, windows, furniture, fixtures, appliances, dishes, and utensils should be thoroughly cleaned.

We presented our estimate to the Bob Evans managers. With the welfare and safety of their employees and diners in mind they immediately decided to leave the cleaning & sanitation to trained specialist in lieu of using a non-professional.

Knowing how important it was for this restaurant to open as soon as possible, we utilized almost all of our crew and in 12 days this establishment re-opened their doors.

PROOF - Emergency Ready Plan Prevents Permanent Damage

Mullens Middle School built around 1930 escapes major water damage

From the fall of 2016 and continuing through the spring of 2017, Emergency Ready Profiles were completed for 33 facilities owned by the WV Wyoming County Board of Education. The maintenance director took a great interest in our proposal and personally took us to each building and shut off. 

In August 2017 I received the following email from him:

"The school was Mullens Middle. It was built around 1930 and has much of the original plumbing. The principal called me one afternoon to report a water line had ruptured in the wall of her office near the water cooler. She was needing help to stem the flow of water flooding her office. The custodian was on the ground floor directly below looking for a valve to turn the water off. I couldn’t think. I couldn’t remember off hand were the main water valve was at. I immediately went to your folder and grabbed the map. The valve was located in the boiler room and I relayed the information to the custodian who had the water off in no time. Since this all happened in a matter of minutes we were able to extract the water from the carpet and mop the floor leaving no permanent damage. Thank you again for taking time to help us identify all of our shut offs!!!!”

Are you ready?

2/11/2016 (Permalink)

As many as 50% of businesses may never recover after suffering a disaster.

You own a business and you are out of town, the phone rings and on the other end of the line is your office letting you know your building has flooded because of a broken water line. The secretary tells you the water was 3 inches deep in the entire building when she came in and now it's at 6 inches. You ask her why is it getting deeper? Her response is "nobody here knows where the water shut off is and the water company has not gotten here to turn off the main line". 

To prevent this from being your scenario, let us develop an Emergency Ready Profile for your business - A no cost assessment of you facility.
