Fire Damage Restoration Process

10/13/2020 (Permalink)

After the fire trucks leave, your home likely suffers from fire and smoke damage and extensive water damage from firefighting efforts. SERVPRO Franchise Professionals have the specialized fire restoration training needed to restore your home to pre-fire condition.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call the SERVPRO Customer Care Center, which is staffed 24 hours a day. Our specialist will ask a series of questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us dispatch the nearest SERVPRO Franchise Professional with the appropriate equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

Our Professionals will carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, the SERVPRO Franchise Professional can 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 from All Surfaces

The SERVPRO Franchise Professionals use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

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

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the 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.

HUMIDITY & MOLD

10/12/2020 (Permalink)

MOLD! It grows on many surfaces & may cause health effects. Often, it's caused by humidity. Indoor relative humidity should be kept below 60%-ideally between 30%-50% if possible. Humidity levels can rise in a building because of several things. One, is turning off the HVAC system when a facility is not being used. Or, to save money, raise the thermostat much higher than usual when leaving town for a few days. 

A function of the HVAC system is to remove moisture from the air before it's distributed throughout the building or home. 

We suspect this will happen more because of the pandemic shutdown. Please check your facility to be sure you keeping the humidity as low as possible.

Most Common Water Damages in the Home

8/6/2020 (Permalink)

What is water damage?

Unfortunately, there are many different forms of water damage that you can find in your home. The SERVPRO of Paducah team has complied a list of the five most common types of water damage that we usually find in our client's homeowner.

Five most common types of water damage

1. Leaking or burst pipes- Pipes can burst for many reasons, making them a common cause of water damage. A lot of the times in Kentucky, pipes will freeze during the cold temperatures and eventually burst. Other common causes are unregulated water pressure, inevitable wear and tear, and other temperature changes.

2. HVAC units- When homeowners forget to check on their air conditioner and provide proper maintenance, these units can accumulate moisture and eventually result in a leak. This can lead to an even bigger problem if mold begins to form.

3. Clogged gutters- This water damage is typically found in the foundation of your home. When gutters are clogged with various debris, they do not operate as they are intended to and overflow at the expensive of your home. 

4. Faulty household appliances- Washing machines, refrigerators, dishwashers, and hot water tanks can all cause a lot of damage to your home. Many of these appliances are viewed as necessity, so it is very unfortunate that these appliances are all susceptible to creating damage. 

5. General plumbing issues- Plumbing damage is one of the most difficult forms of water damage for the average homeowner to detect. Common signs of this form of damage are dripping faucets, leaks around your tub or shower, and overflowing toilets. 

SERVPRO of Paducah can help

As you can see, most of the most common forms of water damage that we have listed are inevitable. That is why it is important for you to have your local SERVPRO franchise within quick reach. Water damage can quickly worsen if homeowners do not immediately address the situation, due to molding and further deterioration.

Call the SERVPRO of Paducah at (270) 443-4555 today to quickly and efficiently address your water damage issues, for a home as good as new.
