Who is responsible for rental property damage?

Commercial Who is responsible for rental property damage? When a rental property floods, who is responsible for the repairs?

Water damage can strike both renters and property owners alike. A large water related disaster can render a property uninhabitable and cause permanent damage to the resident’s personal belongings.  When water damage strikes an apartment, who is the responsible party? The owner or the tenant?

Tenant Rights

Generally speaking, the responsibility of property maintenance falls on the landlord. If a landlord refuses necessary repairs or fails to address them in a timely fashion, and his negligence results in damage to the tenants property, (such may be the case with mold) they may be liable for the cost of replacing the affected items. Although details can vary from state to state, there are certain basic principals in place that outline the liable party. If in doubt, check with your local housing authority. 

Keep Lease Current

It’s a good idea to be aware of the terms laid out in your rental agreement/ lease as it pertains to property damage. Rental properties generally have property insurance and the lease agreement should specify what is covered and what is not.

Rental Insurance

It is a good idea to have a rental insurance policy in the event of an accident. Many property managers require rental insurance. Coverage can vary from policy to policy. Some policies cover property damage, theft, personal belongings and even lodging in the event of a displacing emergency. It’s a good idea to look into obtaining a rental insurance policy, and if you already have one, it’s good to be familiar with what is and what is not covered.

Property management/ owner duties

Any landlord is responsible for keeping the apartment maintained to an acceptable level of livability. Basic plumbing, appliance and electrical maintenance is the responsibility of the landlord, as is basic property upkeep. The landlord can be held negligible for damage incurred due to failing to perform these basic functions.

Damage to personal property

Damage to the building itself, as well as utilities and appliances should be covered by the property owner’s insurance policy. Damage to personal property falls under the responsibility of the party who caused the damages, which may or may not be the tenant.

The Qualities of a Reliable Resotation Service

2/15/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial The Qualities of a Reliable Resotation Service Make sure you investigate the claims of any service provider you enter into an agreement with!

Certain items such as a leaky faucet, small hole in the wall or a broken pipe can fall under the “DIY” category and can be handled by anyone with a basic set of tools and a little know how, but what if you are facing much bigger issues? A flooded basement, severe mold infestation or persistent smoke infiltration? There is no shame in admitting you may need to call in a restoration professional to get you out of a jam. Before you enter into an agreement with restoration contractor, there are a few things you may want to consider. You need to remind yourself that you will be allowing workers into your place of business to perform the work. It would be desirable to find a company that employs trained professionals with substantial experience in the work they are performing. Just because a contractor has made the claim that they are qualified to do the work, does not mean they actually are. In the modern era, it is very easy to falsify information via advertisements and create decoy internet sites. Do your homework.

Is their website legitimate?         

We have all heard horror stories about scammers on the internet and people misrepresenting themselves, but the internet has come a long way and it is also the fastest way to find most services, including restoration contractors. One way to quickly determine if the company’s site is legit is to see if includes informative links to the services they provide. Most reputable commercial restoration contractors will offer the following services:  

After you have clicked on these links, they should take you to pages that offer informative insight into the type of work this company provides. You also may want to check to see if this company has an online presence with YelpFacebook and Google. These sites are a bit harder to falsify.

Read reviews and testimonials

The majority of modern companies have a link on their website that leads to client testimonials. What better way to ascertain if this is the right company for you than reading other clients reports? Also, as mentioned above, most companies have reviews available on Yelp, Facebook and Google. Take a look at these as well. Another thing to look for is if they provide examples of their work.  

Give them a call. Ask Questions!

Any professional service provider should know what they are talking about. They will know their company’s history and should be able to answer basic questions about the service they provide.

SERVPRO of Lake Oswego/ West Linn is a locally owned and operated franchise. We take pride in our involvement in our community, as well as being a part of an elite nationally recognized restoration service.   

We welcome scrutiny and invite you to investigate our claims. If you are needing a reputable and honest fire or water restoration contractor, give us a call today. We would be happy to answer all of your questions and concerns. 503-635-6233

Is Your Lake Oswego Business Prepared For Water Damage?

Commercial Is Your Lake Oswego Business Prepared For Water Damage? Avoid panic by implementing a plan for your business in the event of a water disaster!

Dealing with a water damage disaster at your Portland business is never convenient. SERVPRO of Lake Oswego/ West Linn understands the urgency and sensitivity of this situation. When faced with a potentially door closing flooding disaster, it is important to stay calm, use clear judgment and act FAST. We have put together a few tips that can be helpful in this stressful situation and make the process of restoration go a lot more smoothly.

Stay Prepared

Broken plumbing, sewage backups, and heavy rains can strike at any time. If you have a plan in place for such unfortunate events, it will greatly reduce the panic, stress and pain for everyone involved. Investing in sandbags, air brick protection and back up water pumps could help your business save a lot in the long run. It almost goes without saying, but making sure your insurance policy is up to date is absolutely crucial.

When the flood strikes

There are a number of safety measures you may be able to take during the storm. Floodwater can be very powerful and has the ability to cause bodily harm. Do not attempt to walk through flowing floodwater. Assess the situation and insure that no water has the potential to come in contact with electricity. If it is safely accessible, turn off your main power breaker. Rubber gloves and boots are also a good idea in this situation. If you are not sure of the safe way to proceed, wait for a trained professional to arrive and take the proper measures.

As mentioned before, electricity should be turned off. Additionally, you should be aware of where you main water shut off is located. This will be crucial if the flooding is due to an internal plumbing failure.

After these steps are taken, you should contact your insurance provider and then a reputable and trustworthy restoration company. SERVPRO of Lake Oswego/ West Linn specializes in the cleanup and restoration of both residential and commercial property after a water disaster. Our staff is highly trained in property damage restoration. From initial and ongoing training at SERVPRO’s corporate training facility to regular IICRC-industry certification.

Causes of Commercial Water Damage

3/6/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Causes of Commercial Water Damage We hope you NEVER come to work to find this scenario! If you do, you know EXACTLY who to call. SERVPRO of Lake Oswego/ West Linn has your back!

When a business owner imagines water damage, their mind might immediately go to a catastrophic storm that takes down trees and power lines, closes blocks of infrastructure and causes business closure. It is true that a good percentage of commercial water loss is caused by heavy rains and storms, particularly here in the wet climate of Clackamas County, but that is far from the only cause of commercial water loss. Here at SERVPRO of Lake Oswego/ West Linn, we see the full spectrum of water damage on a daily basis. Below are a few common causes of water damage that we’ve seen that can affect your business.

Improperly Functioning Sprinkler System

As buildings age, their fire protection systems can become outdated and worn out. According to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), your sprinkler system’s internal piping system should be checked every 5 years. NFPA 25 outlines an industry standard inspection schedule. A fire protection system is crucial to any commercial building, but a malfunctioning system can cost your business in both damages, as well as business closures.

Broken Appliances or Equipment

This poses an issue in restaurant or catering industries, but can also affect any facility that uses appliances or tools that utilize water. A failing appliance can cause substantial damage, particularly if it fails on the off hours while your business is closed. A regular inspection of your appliances can save your business a lot of time and money.

Pipes & Plumbing

As in any building, broken and failing plumbing can result in water damage. Older buildings tend to be more susceptible to this sort of damage.

Sewer Line Back Up

We have previously covered some of the causes of sewage back up here. Sewage and other “Black Water” accidents can cause health effects and wreak havoc on your building and the products and furnishings therein. Special equipment and training is necessary when dealing with this sort of commercial water damage. Do not attempt to clean this sort of damage yourself.

If your business has encountered any of these scenarios, especially one that involves Black Water, call the professionals at SERVPRO Lake Oswego/ West Linn today. Our team is  IIRC certified and can get your business back up and running fast. 503-635-6233

Commercial Water Damage From Sewage Backup in Your Marylhurst Business

Commercial Commercial Water Damage From Sewage Backup in Your Marylhurst Business Marylhurst Calls on SERVPRO for Contaminated Water Removal from Businesses

SERVPRO Mitigates Contaminated Water Damage Safely

Your manufacturing plant in Marylhurst always needs to be running in tip-top shape to keep up with daily operations and ensure that everyone stays safe. A sewer backup can not only create a halt to operations, but it creates a lot of water damage which must be cleaned up right away before any more damage occurs.
Commercial water damage and water extraction is not a task which should be taken on by you alone. There can be many variables, depending on what is water damaged in your Marylhurst building, and with a sewage leak the water itself is contaminated and needs to be handled carefully. SERVPRO staff can come to your rescue, as we have the training needed to understand how to handle these situations correctly to keep everyone safe and get your building dry again.
Where sewage water is involved, we have to be concerned about biohazards, which may cause health effects. Pathogens are treated with specific protocols to ensure the safety of both workers and other individuals. 
Infectious waste includes any water which could have organisms that make a health threat to workers and occupants. These dangerous waters include not only sewage but also condensation from air conditioners and floodwaters. Even a clean water source can pose a problem if the water is left in the structure for a long time.
SERVPRO technicians treat sewage as high infectious waste material. These sources can contain tetanus, cholera, polio, typhoid, hepatitis, and various other infectious diseases. Besides living organisms, sewage can also emit methane gas and other sewer gasses that are harmful to breathe in.
To protect ourselves, we wear appropriate personal protective equipment while we work in your building including chemical resistant gloves, a respirator, splash goggles, rubber boots, and a full-body suit. We also set up a containment area to stop the spread of infectious waste while we are moving materials and equipment into and out of the building.
An EPA registered disinfectant is sprayed on all waste material and surfaces exposed to the water. We allow for dwell time listed on the label before we begin working in the building as well and reapply the disinfectant after we remove all of the waste material. This waste material is not dumped in the street or storm drain, but removed to a designated site.
SERVPRO of Lake Oswego/West Linn disposes of any waste properly when we are done cleaning and drying your structure so that it is entirely safe again. Contact us at (503) 635-6233 when your manufacturing plant in Stafford, Lake Oswego, or West Linn has suffered from a sewage backup.

Commercial Commercial Water Damage in a Lake Oswego Restaurant SERVPRO Helps Lake Oswego Restaurants Remain Open During Water Damaging Events

SERVPRO Helps Food Service Businesses After Water Intrusion

Flooding in Lake Oswego can cause much damage if the water remains too long. A rapid response means lower costs to owners, which makes them and their insurance companies happy.

At SERVPRO, we understand for a Lake Oswego business; commercial water damage is a double threat. When it happens in a restaurant, that means that every cook, waiter, dishwasher, and cashier is now at risk as well. They face the decision to wait for restoration to be finished and hope unemployment covers their rent or try to find another job. Our goal is to get the doors reopened as fast as possible, so no one has to make that decision or even worry about it.
We start with an inspection that tells us how many people we need and the tools to use. If the business owner sends us pictures of the disaster, we can arrive with commercial grade water pumps enough equipment to start removing standing water and begin lowering the structure’s humidity level within minutes.
Once we have the water pumped out, SERVPRO technicians use two more tools to finish drying floors and carpets. For hard surfaces like kitchens, we use long-handled squeegees to push water off and outside the structure. For carpets, we deploy water extraction wands. These devices remove any excess water without harming the nape or the individual fibers.
If the flood water came from a backed up sewer line or a damaged toilet, then there is a risk of contaminated water. SERVPRO maintains an extensive inventory of anti-bacterial cleaners that kill contaminants but are safe to use in food preparation and storage areas. Depending on the size of the facility, we can remove water and clean the structure from just a few days to two weeks.
Restoring your business takes time, but it also has to be done correctly. SERVPRO of Lake Oswego / West Linn is proud to serve our neighbors and fellow business owners in Oregon. We have helped people through burst pipes and other disasters for decades and remain just as dedicated as we were twenty years ago. To schedule an inspection or one of our clean-up services, call (503) 635-6233 today.

Fire Damage Threatens Commercial Sweet Spot in Lake Oswego

Commercial Fire Damage Threatens Commercial Sweet Spot in Lake Oswego Call SERVPRO for quick and professional fire remediation to get your business back to serving up sweet treats to your customers.

SERVPRO can help after an oven causes fire damage in your bakery or restaurant

Commercial ovens are the workhorses of restaurants and bakeries, taken for granted by business owners and the public they serve. Malfunctions or operator error can cause a commercial oven fire that may have wide-ranging effects on your business and surrounding buildings. Be ready with a plan of action that includes a reputable fire damage restoration expert.

Your bakery offers sweet treats to residents of the Lake Oswego area until fire damage shuts down your ovens. An improperly calibrated sensor allowed heat levels to rise, incinerating a batch of pastries. Smoke had poured through your preparation and customer service areas before the sprinkler system extinguished the fire. Sooty water, flame damage, and a horrible smell all need professional attention immediately.

SERVPRO trains its commercial fire damage technicians to respond swiftly and appropriately to exactly this type of devastation. We know you cannot afford to shut down your business for even a few days without serious negative consequences. Our goal is to devise a plan that quickly and systematically completes the steps necessary to clean up the area, repair the equipment, and eliminate the fire-related odors that are far from enticing.

Our crew takes on the water damage first, using powerful extractors to remove standing water and residual moisture. Cautious at all times, we check to make sure the electronic equipment of a modern commercial bakery poses no risk of shock as we proceed. Air movers and dehumidifiers reduce the moisture in floors and walls as our crew turns to cleaning sooty surfaces with carefully chosen products approved for use around food prepping areas.

Evaluation of any food in the pantries is crucial as the heat and smoke can make edibles unfit for consumption. We work with your insurer throughout the process to limit your business’s liability. Finally, SERVPRO deodorization experts focus on eliminating smoky and unappetizing smells. Using a four-step process approved by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, Restoration, and Certification (IICRC), our team neutralizes the odor particles floating in the air after removing the burned materials and cleaning off smoky residues. We complete the job with sprays or thermal fogging, leaving your bakery ready to share delicious aromas once again.

SERVPRO of Lake Oswego / West Linn awaits your call for help with the trained technicians and equipment that puts your bakery back in business. Call (503) 635-6233 to schedule a consultation as soon as the fire is out.
