Fire Damage Situations

3/8/2021 (Permalink)

fire fire

Fires are scary & anyone that has been through or seen one doesn't need to be told this. The total aftermath of a fire can be devastating. Fortunately SERVPRO will walk you through our process to put the whole situation behind you. This process is usually longer than shorter because with most fire losses, water cleanup is also involved. 

  • Step 1: Emergency Contact

    The restoration process begins when you contact your local SERVPRO directly. Available 24 hours a day & will ask a series of questions regarding your loss. 

  • Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

    Our Professional team will carefully inspect your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan & getting the action started.

  • Step 3: Board-Up and Roof-Tarping

    Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, our SERVPRO Professionals will board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.

  • Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

    The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. They will then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.

  • Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot

    Our SERVPRO professionals use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.

  • Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

    We will clean all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. We use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We are also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

  • Step 7: Restoration

    Restoration is our final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. 

My team is ready to hear your story & relay a plan TODAY.

Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning

2/15/2021 (Permalink)

clean clean

Even the highest-quality carpet and upholstery can show soiling over time. Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils.

The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.

IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet. 

How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months.

The SERVPRO System offers a number of cleaning options to match any type of upholstery or carpet with unmatched experience and the highest standards in the business.

Smoke & Soot Cleanup

2/12/2021 (Permalink)

fire fire

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action. 

Smoke and soot facts:

Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.

Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.

The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Buckeye will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Does your home have a mold problem?

2/12/2021 (Permalink)

mold mold

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.

Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.

Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.

Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.

Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.

Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

If You See Signs of Mold, Call SERVPRO Buckeye Today – (623) 248-1148

Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. Make it a must to inspect the ductwork of your home or business.

However, duct cleaning is not always necessary. SERVPRO Franchise Professionals will make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your system.

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

Why Duct

2/12/2021 (Permalink)

While your commercial business is focused on providing a service, it’s easy to forget the services you need as well. One thing you should always put first is making sure that your employees are breathing clean air and are operating in a safe work environment. Chemicals, pollen, construction debris and dust can easily be transferred from the exterior of a building to interior through the air duct system. Here are a few advantages to having your building’s HVAC system cleaned by a professional:

  • Allergies & Dust - Pollen and dust particles will be removed in the process and the affected area will become sanitized and a safer working environment.
  • Efficiency - Years of dust, hair, pests, and other pollutants in ductwork will hinder an HVAC system’s airflow. A proper cleaning will help remove the buildup and promote the proper airflow needed to run the system at peak efficiency.

  • Eliminate Odor - The professional technicians at SERVPRO use their specialized chemicals to break down the molecular bonds that create troublesome odors. This helps to improve the overall air quality within the entire building and reduces the chances of your employees and clientele feeling uncomfortable from strange and unsettling odors that may linger in the air.

Water Damage Categories

Category 3 Category 3 Water

Water can create extensive damage in your home or business. When water damage has been identified on your property it is important to also identify the source of the water. A customized professional restoration bid will be based off 1 of 3 categories of water. 

Category 1:Is usually water damage from broken pipes, an overflowing sink, or rainwater. Health risks are low in this category, but if left untreated this water may be exposed to contaminants and may escalate to category 2 within a 48 hour time period.

Category 2: In the grey water category the source may be related to equipment discharges, chemical wastes like detergent, laundry, and soap. These can be breeding grounds for microbial growth & once again if left untreated may escalate.

Category 3: This water is usually heavily contaminated water. It normally will appear dark in color & is not limited to sewer discharge or any water contaminated with bodily fluids such as urine. This water is highly infectious with over 90% health vulnerability when exposed.

Dealing with water losses & damage can be overwhelming, & that is where SERVPRO of Buckeye & West Surprise steps in.

MONSOONS AND WATER DAMAGE

Water in warehouse WATER

Most Phoenix homeowners might not consider flooding, but one significant storm can cause damage, especially during monsoon season. We are going to let you know the steps you should take if your home has been affected by water.

Take immediate action. The moment you notice water is in your home, call the experts. SERVPRO is on call 24/7 handling any disasters brought to us. Fast reaction time to standing water can save you headaches and cash. 

After calling the experts; our team will take proper steps to fix the source of the problem. 

Our next step is extraction. A large amount of standing water would most likely require us to use a truck mounted pump. Small amounts of water would be extracted with specifically designed dehumidifiers and air movers. 

The longer water sits the more time mold has to form and when this occurs the material the mold has infested would need to be removed and replaced. This would also require use of antimicrobials on and around the affected area to prevent spread.

HOW TO PRPEARE FOR MONSOON SEASON

7/23/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO STORM SERVPRO STORM

Rain and Flood Damage

Rainfall can be significant during Arizona monsoon season. This weather condition often leads to flooding that can damage your home. You can prepare your home before the rain comes by ensuring that it has proper runoff set up. Clean your gutters and downspouts so they can effectively direct the rainfall away from your home. Also, institute fixes if your downspouts aren’t properly reaching the ground and bringing the water away from the house.

Wind Hazards

It’s smart to prepare before Arizona monsoon seasons for high winds. Since these winds can knock trees from your yard onto your home, assess your backyard before the season hits. By trimming or removing trees that are too close to the building, you could prevent potential consequences such as damage to your home or business.

Check your roof yourself or have it inspected by a professional contractor. If there are problematic areas, it is ideal to fix them before heavy winds, dust, and rain bombard the roof and worsen the damage. In the same way, you can assess the home for other weaknesses, such as unstable windows or doors, or problems with the exterior material. You may also want to secure windows, or doors with extra brace plates, or replace windows with double pane windows to prevent breakage.

On the road, drive safely & slowly and when doubting your ability to perform under extreme rainfall. Preparing your home in advance can prevent costly damage and help your family stay safe during the Arizona monsoon season of June, July, August and September. Everyone, including pets, should stay inside during the storms and follow guidelines for safety during strong storms.

CLEANING CLEANING

Did you know? Cleaning - removes dust, debris and dirt from a surface by scrubbing, washing and rinsing. Sanitizing - reduces but does not necessarily eliminate all bacteria on a treated surface. Disinfecting - destroys or inactivates bacteria and viruses identified on the product’s label on hard, nonporous surfaces.

Water damage can go from insignificant to extensive fairly quick. Bathrooms are notorious for causing water leaks although they can happen or cause damage in any area of your home. Grout deterioration, broken faucets of sinks, or fractured pipes are all causes that start minimal, but overlooked can create mold. Mold is a reasonable visible sign you have water damage. You may notice mold or you may smell it. This will come to you as a distinctive earthy or musty odor. If this something you smell and you cannot locate the source it may be the best time to call in a trained technician to help track down and address the source.
