SERVPRO Provides Fire Damage Restoration in Avon

A fire in a home in Avon presents challenges across many different areas. The average fire will burn some areas, including cabinets and structures. Fire retardants used to quell the fire are spread over the immediate area of the fire. Smoke residues and smoke odors can be present in multiple areas of the home depending on how long the fire burned, whether it burns hot or cool and whether the HVAC system distributed smoke throughout the house. Various surfaces, each with their absorption characteristics, must be cleaned and deodorized.

SERVPRO provides fire restoration for homes in the Avon area. We are trained to deal with all of the challenges that fire presents, and we take the time to assess every situation to ensure that we can clean and sanitize as many of your personal belongings as possible.

Some of your contents and even some structural components may be damaged and not restorable. We catalog these items for your information and insurance claims. Once we have assessed the damage, we begin cleaning, sanitization, deodorization, and drying if needed. SERVPRO uses a variety of cleaning methods depending on the material and the type of smoke residue. These include:

  • Absorption powders on materials that are too fragile to clean using chemicals and agitation methods
  • Spray and wipe with a dry cleaning towel for hard surface items
  • We use foam cleaning to avoid damage by excessive moisture of cleaning products
  • Hand washing and rinsing on products that can withstand saturation techniques
  • Wet cleaning using upholstery cleaning machines on soiled fabrics
  • Immersion techniques for smaller items that can be immersed in cleaning liquids.

We always use the proper fire restoration techniques to clean your home and contents after a fire.

Our Skilled Professionals Explain How To Prevent Long Term Issues After A Flood In Your Farmington Home

6/17/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO vehicle outside job site. Flood damage restoration is no DIY project. SERVPRO uses the latest technology and equipment for every size of disaster.

Preventing Long Term Problems After Flood Damage

A flooding incident can ruin your property, leaving you with a significant restoration bill. Although some incidents flatten homes or cause other significant structural problems, most flooding incidents leave the structure intact but cause other lasting issues. It is possible to prevent such long-term problems by taking specific steps during the restoration process. 

Flood Damage Restoration

One common effect of flood damage in Farmington that can leave a lasting impact is contamination. As the floodwaters flow over different areas, they collect insecticides, industrial chemicals, biohazards, and other contaminants. The waters deposit some of these contaminants in the areas of your house that they reach. Our SERVPRO technicians spray EPA-registered disinfectants in all affected areas before starting the restoration processes. We then clean up your property using pressure washers and professional cleaning agents to sanitize any contaminants. We also tear out porous elements affected by the water, such as carpets and pads, because it's impossible to remove all traces of contaminants from such materials. 

Development of Mold Damage

Mold is another problem likely to plague properties hit by flooding events. Mold develops where there is sufficient moisture, so any traces of wetness left in elements and contents can spark growth. Even high levels of relative humidity exceeding 60% can lead to mold development. Our SERVPRO technicians take moisture readings using moisture meters and sensors throughout the restoration process to ensure We dry your property to preloss levels. We also FLIR thermal cameras to help identify any concealed wet areas.  

Flood Damage to Contents and Structure

Flooding can lead to structural weakness in the contents, such as furniture or parts of the house, especially after extended exposure. This happens because the absorption of water causes swelling in wooden frames and weakening of joints, primarily where glue is used. Rotting and other problems can also occur. Our SERVPRO technicians take various steps to dry the structure and its contents. We use specialized drying equipment such as the injectidry system and drying mats to dry wooden floors. We also use ventilation equipment to drywall cavities. 

After flood damage, call SERVPRO of The Farmington Valley to help with immediate and future problems after flood damage. You can reach us at (860) 675-4500 any time. We're Faster to Any Size Disaster.

How Should Water Damage in Avon Schools Be Remediated? 

6/11/2021 (Permalink)

Commercial water job location When your commercial building has water damage issues, SERVPRO should be the first thought. Our techs are trained and ready at a moment's notice.

Call SERVPRO for Water Damage Experts in Avon 

If a pipe inside your Avon private school ever develops a leak in it, moisture can spread throughout your building quickly. Whenever a plumbing failure occurs, it is wise to call in a professional commercial water damage restoration company such as SERVPRO. However, there are some steps that you and your maintenance staff can take to help speed up the mitigation process.

Conducting the proper procedures during your commercial water damage project in Avon can help you save many of your building materials and contents quickly after the leak occurs. A plumbing failure can often happen overnight, which can give the leak time to spill hundreds of gallons of water into your school's building. If you ever happen to walk into an indoor flooding situation, it is wise to get your maintenance staff started on mitigation procedures quickly.

First, your crew should work towards mitigating any potential safety hazards. Anything that could harm one of your building's occupants needs repairing, or the area should get blocked off and closed to all foot traffic. Next, it is wise to work towards removing any visible water. Moisture can be mopped up and squeegeed from hard surface floors and vacuumed up from carpeted surfaces.

Once your maintenance and janitorial crew have extracted as much liquid water as they can, it is wise to begin drying out your contents and structural components. It can help to remove the chairs and desks from any wet floors. Once you have the affected area clear of furniture and other contents, you can set up fans to create air circulation.

Contact SERVPRO for Water Damage Remediation

Once you have taken the first steps of water extraction and drying, it is wise to get help from a professional company like SERVPRO. One value we give to being invited to help you with your project is our testing and monitoring capabilities.

We can start by testing your contents and building materials to see how wet they are. We test both affected and unaffected areas so that we can determine a drying goal. After achieving the goal, we return to test every day until the final drying goal and all moisture levels return to what they were before the water leak occurred.

We can work with your maintenance team to make sure the best job possible gets completed. For professional help with testing and monitoring, call SERVPRO of The Farmington Valley at (860) 675-4500 because We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
