The Three Levels of Lost

8/22/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO® of Oconee/South Anderson/Pickens Counties specializes in both residential and commercial losses.  Similar to residential losses, commercial losses have a three tier damage level that we access.

Level 1: Level 1 is a small commercial loss involving 15,000 square feet or less of affected floor space. Examples of a small commercial loss may include a stand-alone store front, a small church or a daycare facility.   A Level 1 loss can also be a small portion of a much larger structure.

Level 2: Level 2 is a medium commercial loss involving 15,000 to 60,000 square feet of affected floor space. They are typically multi-level or greatly divided spaces.  Examples of a level 2 loss may include a small multi-family property, a midsize church or a school. A Level 2 loss can also be just a portion of a much larger structure 

Level 3: Level 3 is a large commercial loss typically involving more than 60,000 square feet of affected floor space. The building or buildings involved will likely be large multi-level structures. Examples of a level 3 loss can include, a large church, hospital, school, or university; a large multi-family property; or a large strip-style shopping center or shopping mall. This is the level at which it would be appropriate to refer to the project as a “large loss.” 

Make SERVPRO® of Oconee/South Anderson/Pickens Counties your first call to help you or your business and your local insurance agent assess the damage.  We will work for you to restore the property to make it "Like it never even happened."

Why is PPE so Important?

Why is Personal Protection Equipment so important?

Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE", is equipment worn to minimize exposure to hazards that cause serious workplace injuries and illnesses. These injuries and illnesses may result from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. Personal protective equipment may include items such as gloves, safety glasses and shoes, earplugs or muffs, hard hats, respirators, or coveralls, vests and full body suits.

At SERVPRO of Oconee/South Anderson Counties we always wear full PPE, to ensure safety from and to limit the exposure of any hazards.

So no, we aren't wearing suits to look like marshmallows or a big huge banana, we are doing it for protection!!
