SERVPRO's Water Loss Recovery Service Includes Sanitizing Affected Properties

6/12/2019 (Permalink)

Water Damage SERVPRO's Water Loss Recovery Service Includes Sanitizing Affected Properties The SERVPRO of Farmington Dodge ProMaster is designed to carry all types of equipment use for water restoration.

You have a lot to worry about when your Farmington home is awash with water. Your biggest worry is probably how to extract the water and dry the soaked contents. Contamination is probably the last thing in your mind unless the flooding is from sewage back up or storm water. You are not alone in this line of thinking as most people only realize there is contamination at the very late stages of the restoration. So, how can you eliminate contamination through the steps taken during restoration?

The level of contamination in cases of water damage in Farmington depends on the kind of water that causes flooding. At SERVPRO, we follow industry standards that identify three types of water that floods properties. These types are black (category 3), grey (category 2) and clean water (category 1) and the contamination levels are highest in black water and lowest or nonexistent in clean water. Even potable drinking water can degrade to gray or black water if left unattended.
 
In addition to identifying the water type, our technicians also consider the materials affected by the water. If there was a carpet affected by clean or grey water, we treat it on both sides with an EPA-registered disinfectant. We also use the same disinfectant on the floor after extracting the water. This minimizes chances of further contamination.

Any upholstery in the affected area might also be contaminated. Unlike the carpet, which is easier to clean, upholstery has different nooks and crannies, so it requires special attention. Using tools such as ULV foggers, our team can administer the disinfectant in the form of a mist to reach and remove contaminants even in hidden parts of any upholstery item. Generally, we can group furnishings in a containment chamber for large disinfecting efforts.

 
Cleanliness is a relative state that depends on the percentage of contaminants eliminated. Properties can achieve four different levels of cleanliness depending on the effort put. From the dirty state, cleaning can change the property to sanitary or disinfected. This recovery from a water loss is the states that SERVPRO technicians can achieve. Sterile conditions are beyond our scope and service. These environments are needed in hospitals, labs, and other such structures. Reaching a sanitary state is the goal of most restoration processes.

Our SERVPRO technicians extract the water, vacuum and deodorize any affected areas ensuring they attain sanitary conditions.

Is Your Farmington Home Storm Ready?

4/24/2019 (Permalink)

As anyone who lives here knows, springtime in Farmington brings beautiful sunshine as well as strong rain and wind storms. With weather that can switch so quickly between the two, it’s important to make sure your home is storm-ready, prepared to handle and withstand unpredictable conditions.

It’s always a good idea to conduct a home and ground inspection before weather conditions take a turn for the worst. Things like leaky roofs or windows can be very problematic in the midst of heavy rainfall and strong winds, so checking them and making sure they are all fitted correctly is a critical step to take.

Checking for loose shutters and trimming back any trees or shrubbery that may be surrounding your home is another good way to get it storm-ready. Shutters, tree limbs, and other loose debris can get picked up by wind and thrown in any direction, including towards your house. Also inspect any drainage areas near or around your home, clearing them of any debris that may be creating blockage. This will help reduce chances of flooding your property during a storm.

Another thing to consider when preparing your home for a storm is what kind of system to have in place that will allow you to communicate with your loved ones and receive weather updates. In some cases, storms can become strong enough to put your cell phone’s service signal at risk, so it’s good to be prepared and have an alternative form of communication in place.

And as always, in the event of storm damage SERVPRO of Farmington is here to help. We’re available 24/7 and ready when you need us. Give us a call at (573) 756-5191.

Getting Rid of Unpleasant Odors in Your Home

4/24/2019 (Permalink)

Odors from smoke, pets, decomposition or mold can cause lingering odors in your home or business. A simple surface clean doesn’t necessarily get rid of these smells. With technicians certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration (IICRC), SERVPRO of Farmington provides specialized services that can rid your home or business of offensive odors left by smoke, mold or other sources. Our professionals do not cover up lingering odors with a fragrance; they seek out and remove the sources of the odor. Once the source is found, we use SERVPRO’s own proprietary line of cleaning products to treat and prevent the odor from returning. Any restorable item in affected areas will also be professionally cleaned and deodorized, including furniture, draperies and upholstery, electronics, art, flooring, walls, ceilings, HVAC air ducts, and more. Along with our proprietary line of cleaning products SERVPRO of Farmington uses various techniques and equipment to treat odors. These techniques are capable of penetrating surfaces to neutralize an unpleasant odor thoroughly. Some of the tools we use include: Ozone Generator: The Ozone Generator is one of the quickest ways to eliminate odors from a home or office. We use the Ozone Generator to oxidize odor and eliminate odors from mold, mildew, pets, nicotine, smoke and more without the use of chemicals. Though the room being treated cannot be occupied while in use, the generator works quickly to clean, sanitize and remove offensive odors. Hydroxyl Generator: The Hydroxyl Generator has several benefits that the Ozone Generator does not. The main benefit is that the room being treated can be occupied during the deodorization process; though it does work slower. The Hydroxyl Generator can be used to treat fire and smoke, as well as biohazard jobs, water damage, crime scene situations, and animal odors. Air Filtration Device: This piece of equipment, also known as an air scrubber, is used to remove airborne contaminants during water, fire, smoke, mold, and sewage restoration work. These work by pulling air through HEPA filtration to remove airborne particles from the air. This helps clean the air and remove odors. Whether you are a building manager who needs an apartment cleaned for the next tenant or homeowner who wants to get your home ready for sale, getting rid of offensive odors is a high priority. Fire, water, or mold damage, or just a stubborn odor that refuses to go away, SERVPRO of Farmington is here to help make it “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (573) 756-5191

But, our highly qualified and trained fire damage specialists at SERVPRO of Farmington can relieve some of that stress by restoring your home or business to make it “Like it never even happened.” ®    

Every fire damage situation is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. When various materials burn, the soot they create differs greatly and requires a specific cleaning procedure. The 7 steps listed below illustrate the SERVPRO of Farmington's’ process for the “typical” fire damage restoration.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us respond immediately with the appropriate equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We 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, we 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. We 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

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. We use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’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.

After the fire trucks leave, your home or business likely suffers from fire and smoke damage and extensive water damage from firefighting efforts. SERVPRO of Farmington has the specialized fire restoration training needed to restore your home to pre-fire condition.
