Fire, Smoke, Soot, and Odors - Never Pleasant Effects for An Irwindale Home

8/14/2019 (Permalink)

Fire damage can truly ruin your home if not taken care of properly. Call the professionals at SERVPRO today for remediation assistance.

Why Quick Fire Damage Restoration for Your Irwindale Home is Vital 

Fires in homes are devastating. The flames and smoke from a fire cause physical destruction to a home and its contents. After a fire, homeowners should respond quickly to prevent further damage. Responding fast can counter the extent of the fire and smoke damage, and the associated corrosive substances.

If you experience fire damage in your Irwindale home, hire professionals immediately to restore it to its pre-damaged state. Regardless of the fire damage your home experiences, quick action can ensure a less costly and successful restoration. As you wait for the experts to arrive, you can perform tasks such as:

  •       Opening doors and windows to increase ventilation
  •       Placing fans in the property to get clean air circulation
  •       Washing fabrics, carpets, and upholstery

Fire damage is classified into two categories:

  1.           Primary damage which revolves around the fire.
  2.           Secondary damage which results from the smoke and bad odors left lingering in the property.

Fire damage is also classified into six categories, beginning from Class A to Class F. After a fire, the following usually occurs.

Smoke’s hidden reach

Smoke damage can occur in unexpected areas of your house. For instance, if smoke engulfs your living room, the spaces behind the drapes in your guestroom can contain a significant amount of smoke residue. Smoke can also travel quickly through the ductwork of your property.  

Bad odors

Besides the soot, bad odors still linger in the property, and they can penetrate the ceilings, walls, and furniture. The unpleasant smells resulting from smoke and fire damage should be dealt with promptly. Our SERVPRO technicians can remove the odors using thermal foggers and hydroxyl generators to help you get back to a habitable environment once again. 

High levels of Acidity

Soot has high acidity levels, and it destroys natural elements. Metals that come into contact with soot can etch and eventually discolor. Magnetically charged smoke particles can cause short-circuiting in electronic equipment. Quick restoration after fire damage is vital considering the adverse effects of smoke, fire, and their acidic by-products. Our Fire Damage Restoration Technicians (FSRT) can act speedily to lessen the ruin in your property.

We clean the structure and contents separately. We can eliminate all traces of smoke and soot from different surfaces, such as walls and ceilings. Sometimes, we move contents out of a structure and clean them in our facilities. When cleaning contents on-site, our SERVPRO technicians move them to a clean area of the house.

Our technicians use different products to clean a structure and its contents, including general surface cleaners, liquid crème cleaners, glass cleaners, and heavy-duty cleaners. We also have advanced equipment like thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, and moisture sensors that can detect hidden water damage resulting from fire-fighting efforts.

When you experience fire damage in your home, call SERVPRO of Irwindale/Baldwin Park for remediation services. Our team of professionals can handle the loss to make it look, “Like it never even happened.” Call us anytime at (626) 337-3374 for swift restoration.

The Difference Between Mitigating and Remediating Water Damage in Vincent

8/8/2019 (Permalink)

Plumbing Leaks in Vincent Causing Water Damage? Contact SERVPRO to Restore Your Home--"Like it never even happened."

When researching how to manage the harm a water loss causes to your Vincent home, you frequently see the words mitigation and remediation. These two terms, plus the additional mention of “restoration” can cause some confusion if used interchangeably. Understanding the concepts behind the vocabulary helps you feel more in control and part of the solution when a water disaster requires you to seek out professional assistance.

If water damage strikes in your Vincent home, it is usually because of a plumbing leak or an appliance malfunction. The water spreads from the original leak, overflow, or breakage, causing additional harm to structures or contents nearby. When the event occurs, call for professional help because water quickly destroys building materials and personal possessions. As you wait for our signature green service vehicles, you can take some steps to address the potential damage.

Mitigation can refer to actions you or SERVPRO technicians take to reduce, lessen, or decrease the damage. Your quick thinking in picking up clothing, books, and toys before the water flows to saturate them is an example of mitigation. Placing blocks or foil under furniture legs on wet carpeting is another fix a homeowner can do to minimize staining from paint or other finishes until the professionals arrive.

When the SERVPRO team arrives, we work fast to mitigate the impact of excess water in a wide range of ways. Partially saturated carpeting retain dry sections when we use wanded extractors to reduce the moisture level on the leading edge. Pack-outs of contents halt water intrusion into storage boxes and reduces humidity levels in the affected structural spaces, which has the effect of reducing drying times.

Remediation refers to efforts made to remove the disaster-causing water or other agents with pumps and truck-mounted extractors. Drying with air movers and dehumidifiers is another example. Remediation improves the circumstances so that the damage done can be corrected. 

Restoration can include repairs, rebuilding, and refinishing in addition to the mitigation and remediation tasks that come before. Returning the water damaged spaces in your home need 
a combination of mitigation and remediation approaches plus needed restoration for the SERVPRO crew to make good on our commitment to leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park can manage your water loss through all the stages from mitigation and remediation through restoration. Call our emergency number, (626) 337-3374 day or night. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

The Secrets to Water Damage Remediation Are Here for Your Irwindale Home

Water damage can accumulate quickly. Call the remediation specialists at SERVPRO today.

Efficient Drying for Your Irwindale Water Damaged Home Can Prevent Further Destruction

Your house can sustain water damage because of leaks from a faulty appliance like a washing machine, water heater or dishwater or from an overflowing bathtub. When a water loss incident happens in your home, it is crucial to extract the water and begin the remediation process within 48 hours. By reacting swiftly, you can prevent the formation of mold and rust in your property.  

When there is water damage in your Irwindale residence, you can take a few steps to prevent the situation from worsening. One step is opening windows and doors to get the air moving naturally, allowing for enhanced air circulation. Furthermore, open cabinet and closet doors to help with drying. You can also increase air circulation by using high-speed fans. Another vital part of the drying process is using a shop vac to remove standing water. Some shop vacs can remove water effectively from rugs and carpets. If items like furniture and rugs are damp, you can remove and place them in the sun to eliminate the moisture.  

You may also use desiccant materials like calcium oxide, silica gel, and clay to absorb moisture from damp items. Place the items along with desiccant materials in airtight containers and close them. Another critical step for dealing with water loss is dehumidifying because it removes water vapor from the air. You can rent a dehumidifier and place it in the affected areas.  

Calling a professional restoration firm like SERVPRO to dry your house is also essential because its services can avert excessive destruction and minimize the risks of fungus and bacteria multiplying in your property. We have the expertise and proper equipment, including pumps, air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out your house quickly and effectively to prevent secondary damage. Our technicians also use moisture meters to measure the moisture content in wood floors, carpets, tile floors, drywall, and painted surfaces. 

 Moisture meters play a vital role throughout the water damage restoration process. All homes have a dry standard, which means the normal amount of moisture present in a surface is considered being dry. During the drying process, our Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASDs) dry every damp surface to ensure that it has the same moisture content as the same surface in a dry area of your property. To achieve this, we use moisture meters to determine if our drying efforts are productive and to know when we have attained our drying goals. To dry a house and its contents thoroughly, our technicians control four key factors, which are: 

  • Extraction 
  • Humidity
  • Temperature 
  • Air movement 

Our SERVPRO crew can dry most of your belongings on-site with minimal disruption to your home. If there are items that we cannot restore on-site, our crew can move them to our facilities for restoration. 

 After a water loss incident in your house, call SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park at (626) 337-3374 for cleanup and drying services. We can restore your property to its preloss condition fast.

The Secret Of Successful Flood Damage Remediation in Baldwin Park

7/8/2019 (Permalink)

Flood damage can accumulate quickly and be difficult to eradicate. Contact the professionals at SERVPRO today for help.

Flood Damage Professionals In Baldwin Park Describe The Elements Of Carpet Cleaning

During the summer the entire state of California as well as the Baldwin Park area is at risk for severe weather including thunderstorms and excessive rains. According to the Public Policy Institute of California, the entire state is prone to flood damage since most of the state is vulnerable to flooding. Once water builds up on the streets in your neighborhood it can then find its way into your home. 

During any flood damage project in Baldwin Park, our SERVPRO restoration technicians know that removing moisture quickly is the most vital part. We conduct prompt water removal first by extracting it using heavy-duty extractors. Then, we use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out your contents and structural components. Once all of the moisture inside your home gets removed, we conduct a final cleaning and deodorization process that usually includes carpet cleaning. 

 Anytime we clean anything including carpets we utilize the same elements. First, we find the soil and identify its type, and we figure out the type of surface that appears to be affected. Next, we capture the soils in a dry, particulate form, or a solution, so they are easier to control. Then, we remove and properly dispose of the soils. 

 Whenever our SERVPRO technicians clean carpets after restoration procedures, we do it in the following six steps: 

  1. Vacuuming: This first step uses air as a medium and can many times remove half of the soils inside carpets and upholstery. 
  1. Soil Suspension: Soils that cannot be removed by vacuuming sometimes must be emulsified or dissolved before getting sucked up into a vacuum. 
  1. Wash: During the wash step, a cleaning agent is applied to the surface and agitated so that it penetrates the carpet and the soils loosen up. 
  1. Rinse: In the rinse stage, the cleaning solution and suspended soils get removed. 
  1. Waste Water Disposal: In most cases, we can dispose of the rinse water material into your sewage drain, but we always make sure the disposal method we choose abides by all state and local regulations. 
  1. Dry: During the drying process, all of the remaining moisture and emulsified soils get removed from the carpet fibers so that they can return to their normal appearance and texture. 

In case of a flooding incident in your Irwindale or Vincent, call SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park to help. We can be reached at (626) 337-3374 anytime. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Advanced Equipment, Skilled Technicians, SERVPRO Helps Irwindale Area Homeowners with Cleanup and Restoration

6/24/2019 (Permalink)

You Have Come to the Right Place for Irwindale Restoration Services--Your Local SERVPRO Office!

Why SERVPRO Is an Irwindale Disaster Recovery Industry Leader 

Disasters rarely give Irwindale homeowners much warning. Whether the emergency involves water, fire, mold, or storm damage, it can make a house unpleasant and uncomfortable. Severe losses of any kind or failure to address less catastrophic harm quickly might move the problems with your home past inconvenience to causing so much damage that your dwelling is uninhabitable. Our team of disaster recovery experts can get things back on track fast and to the highest standards.

Water Loss
The risk of water damage in your Irwindale home climbs with exposures to aging plumbing, poorly-maintained appliances, extreme weather, and simple bad luck. A few minutes of inattention causes a tub to overfill, a cracked dishwasher hose loosens from an open supply line connection, or open windows allow a windy downpour to splash onto your hardwood floors. These types of scenarios and countless others are among those our managers and crews count among our company’s extensive resume.
 
Training, experience, and top-notch equipment are why SERVPRO should be your first call when a water crisis strikes. Our team of managers and technicians master the best practices for water damage mitigation and remediation through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Reconstruction Certification (IICRC) training. Over the past dozen years, our owners and employees gained hands-on experience, implementing strategies that bring the deterioration caused by water incursion to a halt, readying the property for restoration after the moisture is gone.
 
Our service vehicles carry all the equipment needed for water loss remediation. Submersible pumps and truck-mounted water extractors rapidly remove standing water. Thermal imaging and moisture metering devices help us locate hidden pockets of water and provide data to establish reasonable structural drying goals.  In the hands of our skilled employees, the air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers used during the drying phase bring moisture levels to normal.    
 
Fire Damage
The risk factors that can lead to Irwindale fire damage run the gamut from a candle too close to a curtain to fraying electrical cords to boiled over grease to lint in a dryer and much more. Although many things might be the source of a fire’s ignition, the initial response from firefighters is the same -- chemical extinguishers and large quantities of water. When the fire is out, however, the fire department returns your home for you to plan and manage the next steps.
 
Homeowners dealing with the aftermath of a fire need professional assistance with a range of tasks. The first is usually the firefighting water removal for safety reasons. Slip and fall accidents can injure you and your family and are a concern for disaster responders as well. Electrical shock is also an issue until the space is dried out. Then an experienced remediation project manager needs to complete an assessment of the damage done and lay out a project plan for certified technicians to implement. In the case of a more minor house fire, an SMR SERVPRO marketing rep can evaluate the conditions and act accordingly.
 
One step following the next is why SERVPRO is the answer to your fire damage restoration needs. Our technicians are multi-certified, capable of removing the firefighting water and then moving on to cleaning fire residues. We match cleaning products, methods, and tools with the different types of soot encountered throughout your home. Final remediation includes disinfecting surfaces and deodorizing spaces.
 
If the fire caused significant charring, requiring demolition, repairs, and rebuilding, SERVPRO can continue the project to completion. We hold a contractor's license for the state of California, General Contractor License #: 944464 and California State License Board (CSLB) #: 944464 and are prepared to restore your home to preloss condition.
 
Mold Remediation
Mold spores are constant yet invisible companions to residents of Irwindale, but unless specific conditions are present, they pose little concern. They float in the air and settle on surfaces, waiting to encounter a bit of moisture. When they absorb the water, they begin growing, eventually becoming rapidly multiplying colonies that spread over surfaces made of or coated with organic matter, including wood and the cellulose that covers drywall and ceiling tile. Even non-porous surfaces with bits of organic material clinging like soap scum on tile or mirror can grow mold.
 
Mold remediation in Irwindale is one of our specialties, which is why SERVPRO should be your first call when you even suspect mold damage. Signals can be dark staining on walls or ceilings or a musty smell. Because mold can damage building materials and irritate susceptible individuals, it is essential that professional remediation occurs. Complete mold removal is impossible, but we use the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocol to ensure safety and achieve the most successful results.
 
We contain the moldy area, using negative pressure air scrubbers to complete an airlock barrier system. Mechanical scrubbing and brushing and gentle abrasion of soba blasting remove the mold from most surfaces. Technicians wear personal protective equipment (PPE) and bag moldy residues and vacuum floors and surfaces with HEPA-filtered equipment to clear the area and prevent spread to the rest of your home. Final steps include EPA-registered disinfectant with an option to coat surfaces with an antimicrobial primer/sealer to inhibit mold regrowth. Moisture control also helps prevent future infestations.
 
Storm Damage
When high winds and heavy rain batter your Irwindale home shingles can rip loose, exterior walls can develop holes, and doors and windows can break. Overland flooding and the precipitation pouring into your house cause catastrophic damage if not remediated swiftly. We respond 24/7, with crews arriving as soon as possible.
 
Securing the breaches in the exterior of your home in Irwindale is storm damage task number one, followed by flood water containment and disposal. Our technicians train in the evaluation of water contamination categories, taking specific steps when collecting and discarding Category 2 and 3 waters as they are the most tainted. Mudslides and excessive silt in waters draining from higher elevations around the community require special handling, which is why SERVPRO prepares for this complication.
 
Our storm responders are familiar with the wide range of pathogens, chemicals, and other waste that can flow into your home during and after the rains and winds. If a sewer pipe backs up because municipal drainage systems are overwhelmed human waste, including blood and feces-borne pathogens can be a risk. Our technicians use EPA-registered cleaners and disinfectants to clean and sanitize storm-damaged spaces. Structural drying proceeds using our commercial-grade air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers. Our training and experience, as shown by Biohazard Contractor License #: TSW 530, assures you of a safe and secure home.
 
Rebuilding services from SERVPRO streamline the restoration process after storm damage. Our team can do it all, avoiding the need to hire separate contractors task by task.
 
SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park stands ready to help with any disaster confronting your family home. Call us at (626) 337-3374 to schedule an assessment, giving us a chance to showcase our industry best practices to restore your home.

Our Certified Professionals Have The Expertise To Handle Water Damage In Vincent

We have the necessary equipment to restore your home and prevent further damage. We are available 24/7, please do not hesitate and call us right away.

SERVPRO - Restoring Water Damaged Homes In Vincent

As part of the Central Valley, Vincent is a great community outside much of the traffic congestion but still able to enjoy everything Southern California can offer. Although residents avoid the flooding that occasionally happens to other parts of the county, they still have to deal with water issues from split lines on a washing machine or another failed appliance.

Even what seems to be a small amount of water can damage a Vincent home to the cost of hundreds or even thousands of dollars. SERVPRO technicians train to meet the requirements of the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) for restoring area homes to their original, dry condition.

Since floors and carpets take the brunt of the damage after a large spill, the effects on walls and floor trim often get overlooked. Painted drywall panels make up most residential interior walls, or else they might have wood paneling mounted over them. The material performs well until it starts to absorb water. In a short amount of time, drywall panels start to crumble in place, and the thin pieces of wood that make up the floor trim begin to crack and split, making them useless.

To prevent this, SERVPRO technicians quickly remove any standing water. Eliminating the visible water is simple with a pump, but getting the water out of the panels and behind them takes a different set of tools as recommended by the IICRC. To draw out the rest of it, personnel remove the floor trim and drill holes in every affected panel. That allows water trapped behind the panels to drain and also increases the natural evaporation of water out of the panels and trim.

If the wall cavity is very humid, technicians insert a hose through the hole connected to an air mover. This device directs warm, dry air into space, further speeding up evaporation. They place one or more air movers next to the outside of the panels and trim, and direct the airflow carefully over the surfaces to dry them without further damage.

If a panel or section of trim is too damaged for restoration, other team members can quickly demolish and remove them without causing additional damage to the rest of the home. They can replace the panels in an average-sized room, and paint or panel over it, so the room looks as it did before the water issue.

For SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park, our task is to put the owner and other residents back inside their clean, dry home. If you have had any water spill in your home, call us at (626) 337-3374 today to schedule a visit and start the restoration process.

Complications Can Occur When Your Commercial Property In Baldwin Park Experiences A Flood

6/3/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park is equipped to handle even a substantial, commercial flooding loss.

Commercial Flood Damage Complications In Baldwin Park

One disaster near Baldwin Park breeds another making it crucial that the restoration partner you choose is familiar with and competent in a broad range of recovery tasks. When torrential rains in our community, the surrounding mountains and Angeles National Forest combine in flash floods, it is likely that the loss suffered by your business includes not only water but also significant amounts of mud and other debris stemming from previous wildfires.

If you feel confident that your in-house or contracted cleaning crew is up to the challenge of commercial flood damage in Baldwin Park you might want to think your position through again. The intensive training our crews obtain from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) prepares us for all aspects of large loss flooding restoration. We also invest in state-of-the-art equipment that helps contain and remove the contaminated flood water filling your business.

Speed is essential when cleaning up the water and debris after flash flooding. SERVPRO responds quickly because we live and work in the communities we serve. We combine the local benefit with our access to a nationwide network of highly-qualified flood remediation technicians and additional high-efficiency water removal and drying equipment if your water loss requires an amplified response.

Clearing heavy debris and mudslides need maximum engagement from our enhanced team. The erosion suffered after drought and fire exposes commercial buildings in our region to far more than flowing water when heavy rains blow in off the Pacific. SERVPRO managers are experts in designing project plans that remove not only water but also soil, gravel, dead and damaged vegetation, and decaying organic matter. We scale up the team to manage the added debris because timelines for commercial flood damage are still limited.

SERVPRO also needs to follow up debris and flood water removal with the cleaning of affected commercial equipment and surfaces. Sanitizing the flooded spaces with EPA-registered disinfectants is mandatory before structural drying. This final step requires enough air movers and heaters to alter the interior environment of your business, drying out the air, so moisture trapped in structures moves to the warm, dry air. Commercial-grade dehumidifiers then remove water vapor from the air for permanent disposal off-site.

SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park is equipped to handle even a substantial, commercial flooding loss. Call us at (626) 337-3374 round the clock to schedule an assessment.

For expert assistance in resolving black water issues, contact SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park at (626) 337-3374 now.

Removal And Repair Of Contaminated Water After Flood Damage In Baldwin Park

Floods can result in the presence of contaminated black water throughout your home. Usually caused by backed up sewers or road overflow during periods of heavy rainfall, black water is classified by the presence of pathogens that could be harmful to your health. We include among these pathogens animal carcasses, raw sewage, herbicides, pesticides, or other forms of debris. Professionals are on hand to help remediate black water emergencies and are equipped with the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to work safely in the removal or disposal of biohazard substances.

Biohazardous waste poses a real risk to your health, and its presence is not uncommon with flood damage in Baldwin Park. If you suspect the presence of black water call SERVPRO immediately on our emergency number and avoid all contact with contaminated water, we can safely remove your furnishings and salvage items using modern cleaning technology. Some items may need to be removed for disposal in line with federal and state guidelines.

Usually, structural components like carpets, subfloor mats, fittings, fabrics, or curtains need to be disposed of after coming into contact with black water. SERVPRO can also demolish sections of drywall to ensure that the property is free from contamination once work is complete. We can replace drywall by engaging with third-party contractors on your behalf.

Pumping water out of the home and carrying out intensive disinfectant cleaning is a must in black water emergencies. SERVPRO can deploy high water pressure to help clean structural components, walls, and ceilings, but we cannot guarantee that these are salvageable. Generally speaking, the safest way of ensuring black water pathogens are removed is by demolishing items that it comes into contact with immediately.

A contaminated water emergency usually results in unpleasant odors being released into the home. Equally, heavy duty disinfectants, bleaches, and anti-bacterial chemicals used during cleaning can also carry with them a thick odor. SERVPRO can thoroughly fumigate the property at the end of service using thermal foggers to ensure your home gets back to its preloss condition after a blackwater emergency.

For expert assistance in resolving black water issues, contact SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park at (626) 337-3374 now.

Irwindale Properties, SERVPRO Equipment, and Skills Mitigate the Water Damage

Irwindale Homeowners Rest Easy Knowing SERVPRO Has Arrived to Mitigate the Water Damage

Water Removal Equipment and Tools Used to Mitigate Your Irwindale House

When an emergency happens at home involving water, structural elements in your Irwindale property can experience problems. SERVPRO's professionals can help mitigate the situation using equipment matched to the various aspects of the work required.

Because water emergencies like this may involve only a small portion of your Irwindale home or the entire structure, SERVPRO's Green Fleet comes filled with equipment suitable for all sized jobs. Many items make use of our large pump, mounted on one of our trucks, providing us with continuous and variable strength when extracting water and moisture from your residence.

The high-tech items that we carry do not do away with the need for buckets, mops, squeegees, and other hand tools. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training teaches our technicians how to use each of these efficiently and when doing so provides the optimal outcome for the customer. Removing water and moisture from your home's interior means the risks of damage decrease, making it easier to restore things, so your home is once more “Like it never even happened.”

Pumps are only one type of equipment used by SERVPRO crews to remove water from homes and businesses. Heated mats that pull water out of floors through heat also use pumps that extract moisture. Other types use air currents to remove moisture from surfaces. Because water and moisture travel from saturated to unsaturated areas, we use this to continually pull wetness out of materials by continuously removing the water vapor from the air. To do this, we rely on desiccant machines, dehumidifiers, and air movers.

When pools of water also contain sediment from disintegrated materials, we use buckets and shovels. In some areas, we might use hoses to flush the area of debris and clear floors so we can check for any damage. Getting things cleaned up thoroughly and as efficiently as possible means your home gets back to normal soon after our arrival. No job is ever too complicated or messy for SERVPRO's specialists.

If your home suffers standing water or long-term drips, you need the water removal experts at SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park. Contact us at (626) 337-3374 so we can start the process of restoring your home. We are always here, day and night, year-round, to answer your questions and set up an appointment at your earliest convenience.
