Water damage

Water emergencies don’t wait for regular business hours and neither do we.

 Water can quickly spread throughout a property and gets absorbed into walls, floors, and furniture and can of course cause stress. When SERVPRO arrives on site, we quickly start the water extraction process almost immediately. Our fast response helps minimize the damage and the restoration costs. Our advanced drying methods allow us to respond quickly to water damage and cleanup needs.

Common causes of water damage include flooding caused by weather, plumbing leaks, sink, bathtub, or toilet overflow, and sewage backup. But, did you know more water damages are caused by broken pipes, plumbing, or appliance malfunctions than from weather related issues.

Fire and smoke damage

7/26/2019 (Permalink)

When fires occurs, in both residential homes and business, it’s not just the cleaning up of the structural areas that we need to be concerned with.

Our crews have to be so careful with the homeowner’s personal belongings because the insurance companies need very specific documentation in order to appropriately compensate the insured so they they have money to replace all of the damaged items. The fallen debris must be sifted through prior to bagging for disposal so that any contents, which may be very small items, can be separated for further valuation.

SERVPRO of Warren County’s team members need to be very aware of properly bagging and separating customers content, so taking our time in small spaces with lots of contents is a very important part of the clean-up process after a smoke damage after a fire.

Fire/smoke damage

7/25/2019 (Permalink)

Cleaning smoke stains off walls and ceilings can be a difficult task. Even if the fire was small like a cooking fire, the smoke can quickly discolor your ceilings and walls. Since smoke rises, the smoke usually damages your ceilings first as the smoke spreads across the ceiling leaving smoke residue. While smoke can usually be cleaned easily off metal and smooth surfaces like counters and ovens, ceilings and walls are not so easy to clean, specially if you have very high ceilings.

While we all hope we never have to suffer through the experience of a house fire, it is important to know what to do if one should happen. Obviously, the first thing you should do is ensure the fire has been extinguished completely.

This can be done by someone in the home if the fire is small and can be put out easily and safely. Or by the fire department if the fire is too big and dangerous to safely extinguish by the homeowner. It’s important to note that it’s always best to call the fire department right as soon as a fire is spotted and to get everyone out of the home quickly and safely.

Water damage in your home or business

7/23/2019 (Permalink)

Aside from a fire, water damage is possibly the fastest acting damage to your  home. Flooding, rain, leaking (busted) pipes, or broken appliances are all possible sources. A whole in your home's foundation that allows humid, moisture-filled air can also cause water damage. Moisture in large amounts leads to condensation, causing water pooling and damage.

 Once water is present it is likely to quickly take action against any porous materials, depending on the kind of water and length it is sitting. Even material that are not quite as porous but still allow for sitting water, will feel the affects. Mold, rotting, or destroyed material are all potential consequences of water intruding into your home if you don’t take action.

SERVPRO of Warren County is available 24/7 for any damages, you can call our office at (513) 932-3649.
