The Furniture in Advance Homes May Need the Help of a Professional Water Restoration Technician After Being in Contact with Water From a Leak.

Most Advance homeowners find themselves with a water leak in their homes at some point or another. If you're lucky, the water damage is minimal, and you spot it quickly, thus reducing the time in which water wreaks havoc on your floors, furniture, and surfaces. Conversely, if the water leaks silently for some time, you may run the risk of weakened drywall and unsalvageable furniture. The impact of prolonged water exposure is critical, and you want to avoid it by calling a reputable water restoration company as soon as possible.

When your home in Advance needs water cleanup services, make sure to call our SERVPRO office as soon as you spot the problem. Our phone lines are operational 24/7 to respond to emergencies as they happen, and our crew is ready to apply its knowledge to mitigate your loss. By training with industry experts, we have the business acumen to perform efficient cleanup jobs that minimize the risk of developing complications, such as the proliferation of mold due to excess humidity.

Can I save my carpet after water damage?

Our SERVPRO team can discuss your home's specific nuances, but, generally speaking, as long as the leaking water does not contain waste, we can perform the drying and cleanup job to preserve them. The same is true about other porous materials that might absorb water easily. If you worry about the water mixing with dirt already in your carpet, our team has at its disposal a myriad of treatments to leave it clean and dry, including-

  • Agitation which loosens up the soil and makes it easier to clean
  • Chemical which involves the application of EPA-approved cleaning solutions to carpet fibers
  • Dehumidifiers and air circulators to promote moisture extraction

Once we treat your carpets, we may suggest using stain repellents to avoid the accumulation of dirt. During the restoration process, you can be sure that our SERVPRO of Davie & Yadkin Counties team is doing its best. When you call us at (336) 677-1415, we join your goal of leaving your home, "Like it never even happened." 

How Can I Protect My Basement Game Room From Flood Damage?

Basement game room Give us a call today at (336) 677-1415. We have the tools and experts to assist you.

Advance Residents Looking To Keep Basements Safe From Flood Damage.

A game room is a great way to use spare basement space in your Advance home. You can keep it simple with a table and chairs, and a bunch of card and board games. Or, you can go all out and install a dart board, a pool table, or even a small indoor basketball hoop.

If you have kids, a game room is an ideal place for them to hang out with their friends, or for your family to spend quality time together. It’s also an excellent way to use space that would otherwise have been stuffed with souvenirs and unwanted furniture. Unfortunately, flood damage is a risk for Advance basements. 

How do I know if my basement is at risk of flood damage?

If you have noticed water in your basement in the past, it could be at risk of flood damage. Warning signs include pools of water around doors or visibly moldy or water-damaged items.

Other risk factors include:

  • A yard that slopes down towards your basement
  • Rickety or damaged doors, or doors with broken seals or panes
  • Broken gutters or downpipes nearby

SERVPRO recommends taking steps to protect your basement now – prevention is much better than cure, and there are several things you can do.

What can I do to flood-proof my basement?

There are several steps you can take: 

  • Repair any broken doors, seals, or window panes immediately
  • Ensure your garden slopes away from your basement, not toward it – call in a gardener to help you
  • Clean gutters regularly and fix broken guttering or downspouts
  • Consider installing a sump pump to kick in and automatically pump water away
  • Find out about basement waterproofing treatment and whether it is a good option for you

 Can I do anything to protect my gaming items?

SERVPRO understands that even when you flood-proof your basement, you cannot guarantee water will never enter. That is why we suggest taking extra care of your gaming items too:

Store board and card games on raised shelves, at waist height or higher

Consider putting gaming tables such as pool tables on a raised platform

Store particularly expensive or delicate items elsewhere in your home

If you are concerned about flood damage, consider furnishing your basement game room with cheap and easily-replaced items.

When should I call SERVPRO?

Call our team at the first sign of flood damage to your basement. There is no such thing as a job too big or too small – we equip our teams to handle every flood size, and We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

If you leave flood water standing, there is an increased risk of microbial growth and further damage to your game room. Do not delay – if you see flood damage, make that call.

What happens when SERVPRO arrives?

We train our technicians to The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards, so you can rest assured they know how to handle every aspect of flood damage remediation.

Our team will start with a thorough assessment of your property. We can also take care of any immediate safety issues, such as establishing a safe source of power for our equipment. Our teams come with full personal protective equipment to safely and hygienically handle all grades of water (including sewage). 

The first step in remediation is pumping out the water. We use a range of free-standing and truck-mounted pumps and wand extractors to remove moisture from your game room.

Next, we clean any water-damaged items. Depending on the material, we might use wet or dry cleaning, immersion, or spot cleaning.

We use dehumidifiers and fans to dry your basement. This is important for odor control and for preventing fungal growth. We can also clean and dry individual items such as a gaming chair or pool table.

We use the latest moisture-testing technology, such as moisture meters, moisture probes, and thermal-hygrometers, to monitor the drying process. SERVPRO of Davie & Yadkin Counties knows that thorough drying is key to a successful flood damage remediation job.

How will I know what to salvage?

Our highly trained technicians have a good eye for what is salvageable and what is not. Our policy is to clean and repair wherever possible – we only recommend trashing an item if it is beyond repair. 

What about damp smells?

We know that a damp-smelling basement is not a fun gaming place, and the smell is a reminder of the flood damage, too. We use air scrubbers and sometimes ozone generators or foggers to control odor. We also have spot-cleaning products we can use to deodorize delicate materials that cannot withstand more thorough cleaning.

If you need flood damage remediation that you can trust, call SERVPRO of Davie & Yadkin Counties at (336) 677-1415.

Advance Homeowners Need Quick Cleanup After Fire Damage

No one wants a disaster to occur in their Advance home, but unfortunately, sometimes an incident happens anyway. When something goes wrong, SERVPRO is here for you – We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. However, some people might wonder if they can handle things by themselves.

Fire damage to your Advance home is stressful. You want to get cleaned up and back to normal as soon as possible. However, please resist the temptation to tackle the cleanup yourself. Professional companies have the necessary training and knowledge to mitigate fire damage, which is better for you and your family.

What are the advantages of calling a professional company?

If you are not used to cleaning up fire damage, you do not know the most effective techniques. We train our technicians in the latest fire cleanup techniques. Our teams set up containment if needed to prevent further spread of soot. We use methods such as HEPA vacuuming and ultrasonic cleaning to remove particles from furniture, soft furnishings, walls, ceilings, and more.

Besides proper training, our teams also have industry-standard protective equipment, to carry out the job safely.

What do fire damage remediation companies look for?

Soot stains and warped furniture are apparent signs of fire damage. However, our technicians also look for:
    •    Damaged appliances or electronics
    •    Hidden smoke damage such as in HVAC systems or hidden corners
    •    Warped door and window frames from the fire or fire-fighting efforts
    •    Cracked windows
    •    Leftover water and damp patches on carpets or drapes from fire hoses

What else can SERVPRO help with?

Cleaning away soot is just one part of our fire damage cleanup service. Our teams also:
    •    Dry out any damp patches to help prevent future mold growth
    •    Clean and restore personal belongings and papers wherever possible
    •    Carry out structural repairs such as removing and replacing wallpaper, insulation, drywall, and plaster if necessary
    •    Use air scrubbers and foggers to remove acrid smoke odors and freshen your home

Our thorough service means you can get back to normal life quickly, secure in knowing that there is no hidden damage waiting to cause you problems later.

My Advance Shop Experienced Smoke Damage – Can My Sheetrock Be Saved?

SERVPRO Knows How to Mitigate Fire Damage in Advance Commercial Buildings

Advance is home to the historic Vestal Potts Gymnasium. There are also mechanic workshops, artist workshops, and auto shops. No matter the type of business, smoke residue can cause severe damage to walls and ceilings.

Can I Paint Over the Smoke Damage?

 If your shop experienced a minor fire that mainly caused smoke damage, you might think a quick cleanup will take care of it. If you have sheetrock constructed walls, it is tempting to wipe them down thoroughly and repaint them. That may not be a wise move. Fire damage in Advance of any kind should be dealt with by a professional cleaning and restoration company.

How Does SERVPRO Handle Sheetrock?

Whenever our team gets called in for fire restoration, we carefully inspect all walls and ceilings. There are different types of smoke residue, and each one requires different cleaning methods. There are four types of smoke residue:

    •    Dry smoke powder
    •    Protein smoke residues
    •    Wet smoke residues
    •    Fuel oil smoke residue (requiring specific techniques)

Soot is a smoke film that has settled, and it has a strong odor. If you paint over your sheetrock without removing the contaminant, you are going to trap the smell. You may be smelling smoke for years to come. SERVPRO technicians test the residues to ascertain what type is there. They can then clean it with the appropriate products and method.

Sealing May be Necessary

At times, the particulates can become so embedded into the sheetrock that cleaning cannot eradicate it. In this situation, the technicians use sealants. The sealants encapsulate the odors in a way that covers the smell. The sheetrock can then be primed and painted.

Contact SERVPRO of Davie & Yadkin Counties at (336) 677-1415 if you need any type of fire damage restoration. We handle commercial restoration of all sizes.

SERVPRO Professionals Have Experience Mitigating Flood Damages in Advance

When your Advance home floods, you need a team of experts with the right tools and training to dry your home. SERVPRO technicians have the equipment necessary to deal with mild to severe flooding in homes.

The Storm Brought Debris Into My House, Can SERVPRO Help?

Flood debris cleanup in Advance is the first line of defense against potential biohazards. Floodwaters carry a wide range of silt, mud, and debris with them that may introduce disease and chemical contamination to your home. To mitigate these hazards, our teams can haul the debris from your home. After dealing with debris, SERVPRO technicians can use specialized equipment to extract the floodwater. We can use:

  1. Truck-mounted extractors to remove large amounts of standing water. These extractors are useful when the flooding in your home is both deep and widespread.
  2. Portable Extractors to extract water from hard to reach areas of your house. While truck-mounted extractors are more powerful, they are far less maneuverable than portable extractors.
  3. Submersible Pumps for when there are more than two inches of flooding in your home.
  4. Wands for dealing with carpet. Carpet wands are ideal for glue-down carpets that may delaminate if dried with more powerful extractors.

Can SERVPRO Restore My Furniture?

Flooding can cause several types of damage to wooden furniture:

  1. Swelling that may result in cracking or weakened joints.
  2. Deterioration of the glue holding together a furnishing.
  3. Spots on the finish.

We can carefully inspect your furniture for these damages to discuss whether it is worth repairing or replacing. Additionally, our teams will remove and discard furniture upholstery that has been contaminated by the dirty floodwaters to reduce the risk of health hazards.

Flooding from storms can cause extensive damages to homes, so don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of Davie & Yadkin Counties at (336) 677-1415. Our teams are available 24/7 and "We're Faster To Any Size Disaster."

What Tools And Techniques Are Used To Clean Up My Mocksville Den After A Fire?

7/21/2020 (Permalink)

property damaged by fire Contact SERVPRO of Davie & Yadkin Counties at (336) 677-1415 for expert flood damage service.

SERVPRO has an Arsenal of Professional Cleaning Equipment and Years of Experience to Clean Up After a Fire in Mocksville

Even if the fire is contained to one room, such as a den, you still need professional fire mitigation. It isn’t as simple as running a vacuum of wiping down the walls in your Mocksville den.

Why do you clean things rather than replace them and start over?

Replacing soot-covered contents and structural material that is not destroyed may seem easier, but that is not always the case. Replacing items can be costly, and if it is an heirloom, it can’t be replaced. After fire damage to your Mocksville home, clean up can save you money and allow you to keep those precious items.

Using the Principles of Cleaning

The goal of cleaning and restoring is to return your home to its preloss condition. There are protocols in place to make this happen:
    •    Inspection of the premises – Scoping out the areas affected by smoke and soot.
    •    Evaluate the residues – different fuel sources leave different types of residues behind. Different residues require various cleaning sources.
    •    Appraising surfaces – each type of material affected, and how bad they are affected, impacts the cleaning methods and products used.
    •    Using dry cleaning methods – mechanical actions such as brushing and use of chemical sponges.
    •    Using wet cleaning methods – used to suspend or emulsify residues with an oil or water-based solution, depending on the item cleaned.

Professional Cleaning Restores Your Home

Expert cleaning goes beyond the cleaning a homeowner can do. You can cause more damage by attempting it yourself. Call in the fire damage professionals, contractor licenses, residential: NC 26671, and let them handle the cleaning and the stress of ensuring all goes well.

Do Professionals In Advance Use Different Restoration Tools Than I Do?

7/12/2020 (Permalink)

water damage in property Water damages vary from one home to the next, making the steps necessary to restore your property unique.

When you hire our SERVPRO team to restore water losses in your Advance home, we arrive with the full measure of our premier equipment!

Much like any trade, the right tools can make restoration and recovery more efficient and cost-effective for your Advance home. Knowing what your property needs are the first step in choosing the right tools and devices to restore it to its preloss condition. Our professionals have an extensive array of available equipment to suit a spectrum of severity ranging from small water loss incidents that impact a single room of your home to widespread conditions that can potentially destroy an entire property.

Restoring water damage in Advance homes requires a fast and deliberate response after recognizing a problem. When our technicians first arrive at your damaged address, we have a finite amount of time to overcome specific obstacles such as standing water, saturation, and compromising conditions for the contents of your home. Ultimately, the water restoration process can get broken down into three main branches:

    •    Extraction
    •    Drying
    •    Cleaning

What Tools Are Best for Extraction?

The removal of standing and surface water is one of the vital elements of restoring your home when our professionals arrive. Extraction is not a one size fits all solution for the property, however. Various tools and pieces of equipment are necessary to eliminate surface threats efficiently depending on the severity of the damage, the depth of standing water, and the areas where this water has migrated. With pre-stocked trailers build with water removal equipment and other water restoration tools, we can arrive at your damaged address with nearly all of our extraction tools with our team. These include:

    •    Submersible Pumps – Between electric and gas-powered models, submersible pumps are among the fundamental tools used in removing standing water from areas of your home. These units are useful for standing water deeper than two inches.
    •    Truck-Mount Pumps – For water losses spread throughout a large area of your property and featuring several inches or even feet of standing water, our most powerful extractor might be necessary. This pump runs off an engine of a truck in our Green Fleet and removes water at 300 psi.
    •    Wet Vacuums – For smaller amounts of surface water still too considerable for mops and toweling, vacuums can help to get the situation under control.
    •    Carpet Wands – Carpet wands are attachments ideal for removing trapped water in carpet fibers. These work with extractors that we already use, including wet vacuums.

What Advanced Tools Get Used for Drying Water Damage?

The drying process is one of the lengthiest portions of restoration. Each exposed area of your house must get focused drying attention to prevent lingering moisture concerns that could facilitate mold growth and structural deterioration. To accomplish this thorough drying, we can utilize many advanced tools and technologies to evaporate water and trapped moisture in materials. While there are dozens of tools and units that can get used from one damaged home to another, there are a few primary drying machines that help to eliminate the water quickly from exposed materials, contents, and environments. These include:

    •    Centrifugal Air Movers – Air movers focus blasts of heated air at specific points. Axial models can address more significant open areas, but these units get positioned to target individual sections of damp materials.
    •    Positive Pressure Systems – Wall systems feature structural cavities that can be ideal locations for pooling water and trapped moisture. Positive pressure systems utilize several discreet holes to infuse these structural cavities with dry, heated air to promote evaporation.
    •    Desiccant Dehumidifiers – Dehumidifiers are tools that are vital centerpieces for moisture content reduction and humidity management. Desiccants can remove not only excess moisture in the environment, but also exhausts dry air back into the damaged area to increase evaporation.

How Challenging is Cleaning After a Loss?

Water removal and drying might seem like the focal points of water restoration, but cleaning is one of the vital points as well. Depending on the severity of the water loss, this phase can be challenging. Ultimately, residues and debris can be the most substantial obstacles throughout the property. Cleaning up after a loss involves many direct approaches, including:

    •    Carpet Cleaning
    •    Surface Wipe Cleaning
    •    Deodorization
    •    Debris Removal
    •    Pre and Post Construction Cleaning
    •    Wood Flooring Restoration

Water damages vary from one home to the next, making the steps necessary to restore your property unique. No matter what your property needs, you can count on the experienced technicians and cutting-edge equipment of our SERVPRO of Davie & Yadkin Counties team to make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (336) 677-1415.

Water Intrusion can Lead to Severe Bacterial Issues in your Advance Business Without Commercial Water Cleanup Services

Do Commercial Business Restorers Work Out-of-hours?

For late-night businesses in Advance, out-of-hours restoration services can be essential. If your bar or kitchen suffers a water leak, there can be significant amounts of standing water within a few hours, while closure could affect your projected revenues. SERVPRO commercial teams are available on call throughout the night for businesses with water intrusion emergencies. Our crew chiefs can arrive on-site quickly and put in place vital mitigation methods to prevent further harm. These mitigation measures may include extracted water from the area, or setting in place controls to provide mold and bacteria from working through the stages of growth. You can contact us twenty-four hours a day in an emergency.

Is standing water a health risk?

All water contains microbes. When large bodies of water intrude into your business, these microbes can breed rapidly. The most effective solution to deal with microbial growth concerns is to use a commercial water cleanup service in Advance. Our technicians can thoroughly disinfect the area and disperse vital anti-microbial treatments to prevent bodies of water from deteriorating into more severe contamination levels. Overnight our team can prevent long-term damage from coming to your business before putting in place a solid plan of action to return it to a preloss condition.

What are the stages of microbial growth in a water emergency?

    •   Microbes begin to grow in the presence of moisture and temperatures of sixty Fahrenheit
    •    Fungus attach to food sources like drywall or other porous textiles and materials
    •    Within three days, these microbes can form full-size colonies which spread rapidly through porous materials and require professional remediation
