Storms can Bring Water Damage into Your Home through Open Windows or Worse

Storm Damage Storms can Bring Water Damage into Your Home through Open Windows or Worse Water Damage from an Open Window

Storm damage from an open window

Warm weather can make it tempting to leave windows open so that fresh breezes can pull pleasant scents inside from the great outdoors. Having blooming flowers nearby can perfume your home naturally and help raise oxygen levels in your home, also. Storms that replenish these plants can cause problems for homeowners, though, when windows stay open and rainwater leaks inside. Other situations can cause homes to sustain storm damage. These include strong winds or trees that fall onto the roof, letting rain collect in the upper area of your residence. Patio doors can also provide a way for rain to splash up and onto the floor. Water damage around and under windowsills can affect wooden frames and cause them to swell, making it difficult to open and close. Metal frames can rust and flake off paint. Cleaning these areas can make metal frames functional again, while wooden ones may require the installation of replacements. We perform this work according to accepted standards to ensure our customers that their home becomes safe again. Dangerous entryways make themselves known quickly, while similar areas under windows can permit easier access to outside pests. Keeping your home safe for you and unwelcoming to vermin and insects helps protect your family and guests. The technicians of SERVPRO of Baxter, Boone, Fulton & Marion Counties want to help your family live in a safe, dry home, free of the problems rainwater can cause when it enters your home. Residents with such dilemmas can get these issues resolved quickly by calling us at (866) 445-8457. Our number is always available, every day of the year, and we perform water extraction and clean-up services for all types of water damage, regardless of the source.

Have you found Mold in Your Business, Learn Your Options?

Commercial Have you found Mold in Your Business, Learn Your Options? Mold is something you don't want to tackle on your own. Our team is available 24/7 to assist with mold remediation services.

Nothing is standard when it comes to mold damage remediation since different areas have different contamination levels. If it is a small section of your business premises that have contamination, we must contain the area to ensure the spores do not disperse to uncontaminated areas. If air vents are supplying and returning from the site, we must block them. Putting the site under negative pressure can also limit the movement of spores in your business. 

The type of material or surface the mold is growing on determines the remediation technique we use to remove the mold contamination from your business. If our SERVPRO technicians notice there is active mold on porous items such as insulation, carpeting, fabrics, and drywall, we have to remove the material from the site. If carpets and some of your upholstered furniture are not extremely contaminated, we may perform steam cleaning with the aim of cleaning them. We do not perform wet vacuuming on porous items since some mold fragments can remain within the item. The type of material or surface the mold is growing on determines the mold damage remediation technique we use to remove the contamination. We can damp-wipe nonporous materials such as metals, glass, and plastics using a disinfectant. If the mold is not firmly attached to such items, we can clean them using HEPA vacuuming. Our SERVPRO team can scrub wooden floors and use a wood floor cleaner when cleaning wooden floors. Some of the methods we use when cleaning semi-porous materials such as concrete and wood include wire brushing, damp wiping, and sanding. Wood that has undergone rotting weakens and should be removed and replaced. Once we complete cleaning, we give the mold spores time to settle before we can repeat the cleaning process. Also, cleaning takes place from the upper parts of a structure towards its bottom parts.

Approaches That Help Save Important Items during Water Removal in your Home.

6/21/2019 (Permalink)

Water Damage Approaches That Help Save Important Items during Water Removal in your Home. When water damage affects electronics and other items in your home, it is time to contact SERVPRO for effective remediation efforts

When water overflows into a property, it does not discriminate, and any item within reach is submerged. However, the damage it causes in different items within the affected area varies. There are items ruined within just a few minutes of exposure to the water. Others can only be ruined if left submerged for extended periods. Finally, some items might not exhibit any signs of damage after the exposure but develop problems later on. It is necessary to follow the right procedures to save valuable items in your home after a water loss incident.   You should pay serious attention to electronics during water removal. If they end up submerged, you might incur huge losses. The issue with most electronics is that even a few minutes underwater can ruin them. In addition to this, the items might continue functioning normally then exhibit signs of damage long after the loss. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you save electronics exposed to water. We remove the items from the affected areas or cover them with plastic sheets if it is not possible to move them. Such actions limit further exposure.   Another prized item in many households is clothes. Property flooding can ruin clothes in different ways. The most straightforward way is the transfer of stains from the dark to the bright colored clothes. You can prevent this by separating the clothes immediately after you detect flooding in the closet. Contaminants in the water and the surfaces where you place the clothes can also stain them.

The water might also affect documents and important books within the home. It is possible to limit the extent of damage by choosing the right removal procedure. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on sublimation methods to save the documents. The method works by changing solids to vapor directly without passing through liquid stages. For this to work, we have to find the damaged documents within 24 hours and freeze them within 48 hours.   You can save your items from unnecessary damages in case of water loss. Call SERVPRO of Baxter, Boone, Fulton & Marion Counties in Mountain Home, AR. We are available 24/7 toll free at (866) 445-8457.

Learn How SERVPRO Cleans and Restores Offices

Why SERVPRO Learn How SERVPRO Cleans and Restores Offices Water removal is the primary step in bringing a saturated location back to its original dry condition.

Water line breaks, damaged roofing shingles, ill-timed sprinklers, or water used during firefighting measures can all lead to a water-logged mess. Water affects different things according to the porosity of the material from which it was made. Office complexes in our area can rely on commercial water removal services to regain control over their office’s environment once again after a disaster involving copious amounts of water has occurred. Our technicians have been trained and then given experience in mitigating water problems, in both large and small environments. At SERVPRO of Baxter, Boone, Fulton & Marion Counties, our training results in certification from the IICRC, ensuring that our technicians can provide the services required regardless of the disaster type, size, or level of complexity. Having a mess in only one secluded section of your office, if large, never is a guarantee that equipment stored elsewhere is protected from damage. Water takes three forms, and humidity travels quite easily inside an enclosed area like your office. In smaller offices, this type of damage can happen much more quickly than in a larger one. When the water came from a contaminated source, our services also include effective decontamination methods that render your shop clean and free of any pathogens or other substances that can cause harm or illness. You, your employees, and your customers deserve a non-germy environment in which to conduct business, and we can help create this for you, even if the situation seems hopeless. Water removal is the primary step in bringing a saturated location back to its original dry condition. SERVPRO of Baxter, Boone, Fulton & Marion Counties uses pump trucks for standing water, hand-held units that extract water from water-logged porous materials such as carpets and furniture, specialized pads to increase the evaporation rate of water held inside floors, and a combination of dehumidifiers, air movers, and heaters for removing the last traces of humidity from the air.
