Fire Damage Indoor Air Quality

After the first responders and firefighters have left your Sun Valley home, and the flames have gotten extinguished, you begin to determine the steps necessary to return your home to preloss conditions. While taking care of the immediate structural issues becomes a priority, you also have to consider whether conditions are safe within the home. Our experienced technicians can do the work safely, and address indoor air quality concerns which could pose health risks to those exposed.

When it comes to overcoming fire damages in your Sun Valley home, our professionals have continual training in safety techniques and the use of personal protective equipment designed to protect them in potentially harmful situations. After a fire, many factors could impact the overall air quality within the property such as smoke, debris, soot, chemicals, and contaminants. We have the advanced technology designed to remove these threats fast.

Our franchise prides itself on the inventory of advanced equipment made available to our trained technicians dispatched to emergencies throughout our service area. Air scrubbers are among one of the most important machines that we can use to improve the air quality within a home quickly, as these devices can trap debris, particulates, mold spores, and dust as small as 0.3 microns.

Deodorization is another concern for both the homeowner and our restoration team, and there are many solutions that we have to remove foul odors like smoke damages from your home and its contents. Ozone chambers can help to neutralize odor molecules present in the contents of your home, but they get removed to a safe location to do this as the early stages of this process can prove fatal to humans and pets. We also offer thermal fogging technology to release a dense chemical compound to neutralize odor molecules in the environment, fabrics, carpets, clothing, and other areas.

Having the right tools for the job can make restoration after a fire go much more quickly. We strive to minimize the impact on our customer’s lives as we restore the damage their property has endured, and that begins with having the industry-leading equipment to do it efficiently.

Commercial Water Loss

10/21/2020 (Permalink)

Water loss incidents can spread quickly throughout your Mountain Home hotel, which in turn can affect multiple areas simultaneously. The only effective way to reduce costs in restoration and mitigation for a substantial water loss incident is to respond to the situation quickly by reaching out to our professionals. Our team has a 24-hour response to emergencies, making us able to handle large loss recovery situations like this by working immediately to thwart their spread throughout the building.

There are many effective strategies for water damage mitigation in your Mountain Home hotel, and our professionals can work quickly to get them started upon our arrival. With our vast inventory of extraction and drying equipment, we can effectively handle even widespread effects that impact large portions of your hotel simultaneously. Our mitigation efforts begin with effective extraction equipment designed to remove pooling water and oversaturation quickly to reduce distortion of construction materials that lead to required removal and replacement.

Drying is one of the most efficient ways to prevent catastrophic loss with a considerable volume of water spreading throughout the property. The use of air movers, LGR and desiccant dehumidifiers, and our Injecti-dry system can help to curb the spread of the damage while protecting exposed elements. Air movers can get installed in many places throughout the hotel to begin forcing heated air into many areas and saturated materials. These machines force moisture into the environment, which then our effective dehumidifiers capture and remove from the vicinity.

While substantial water damage incidents that occur in your hotel tend to require some degree of tear our and reconstruction, the faster that our SERVPRO professionals can get to work on drying efforts, the better able to prevent this reconstruction and renovation we become.

We strive to provide fast service and mitigation work that lowers restoration costs and makes the process more efficient. Whenever disaster strikes, you can trust our SERVPRO of Wood River Valley response team to bring the full measure of our extraction and drying equipment to make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (208) 788-0183.

My Mountain Home Restaurant Has Fire Damage, Where Can I Get Help?

5/18/2020 (Permalink)

heavy fire damage in kitchen Fire damage can be severe and close your restaurant. SERVPRO can quickly restore your business.

Call a Company Firm that Offers Commercial Fire Damage Restoration in Mountain Home

Restaurants are continually at risk for fire. The flames can burst out unexpectedly because of faulty cooking equipment or negligence on the part of the staff. The chances of a fire occurring are high in restaurants where many people handle the equipment.

What steps should I take after the fire?

After your Mountain Home restaurant sustains commercial fire damage, it is essential to contact your insurance firm to determine coverage. An insurance adjuster can visit the premises to examine the extend of the damage and begin the claims filing process. It is critical to start the fire restoration process quickly. Remember that furnishings, walls, and other surfaces can begin to discolor minutes after exposure to fire and smoke. The longer that smoke residue remains on a surface, the harder it is to recover the affected items. Calling SERVPRO as soon as possible can help minimize long term damage and the items that need replacing.

What are the benefits of hiring a fire restoration company?

Hiring a professional fire damage restoration firm can keep restoration costs lower in the long term and increase the chances of saving décor and furnishings. The process of cleaning soot and scorch marks is thorough and detailed. Even though the fire may be confined mostly to the kitchen, the dining area may also have sustained damaging smoke. Soot can clog up air filters for days or weeks, and smoke odor is difficult to remove. Smoke particles can also cause:

  • Paint and plastics to become discolored.
  • Metals to start tarnishing.
  • A foul odor to emanate from fabrics and upholstery.

Fire damage in a restaurant can leave employees out of work until the building is repaired and can reopen. Our fire restoration experts can remove the soot damage and deep clean the affected areas to help you get back to normal operations.

Is it possible to have hidden fire damage?

Yes, hidden fire damage is a severe problem. If restorers miss any area, it can have an impact on the safety of your restaurant. Our SERVPRO team can decontaminate crawl spaces, HVAC systems, and air vents so that soot does not cause unpleasant odors and discoloration. We can thoroughly search for hidden smoke damage and safely clean all the affected areas of the restaurant. We apply the elements and principles of cleaning to restore materials to preloss sate and reduce the loss expense of your fire claim.

SERVPRO of Wood River Valley is available on an emergency basis to handle fire damage in commercial properties. Call us at (208) 788-0183 for a quick, effective restoration of your restaurant.

My Burley Home Has Flooded, Where Can I get Assistance?

5/9/2020 (Permalink)

home interior suffering water damage We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster!

You Can Call SERVPRO to Perform Flood damage Restoration in your Burley Home

Flooding in a home can be frightening and more devastating than you realize. Apart from the short term effects that you may notice immediately, you should be concerned about the long term effects. It is vital to hire a flood damage restoration company as soon as you can.

What are the short and long term effects of flood damage?
When a flood damages your Burley residence, you may experience some effects without proper flood restoration. These effects include, but is not limited to:

    •    Damaged belongings – Even minor flooding can cause damage to your belongings. Some of your belongings can be salvaged, and others must be discarded. Our SERVPRO team can classify the items into salvageable and unsalvageable categories.
    •    Unsanitary conditions – It is necessary to clean up your home after flood damage to eliminate microorganisms that can cause disease. Our team can wear the right attire and take the appropriate steps to remove the water and clean up the affected areas.
    •    Electrical damage – Floodwater can affect fuses, circuit breakers, light fixtures, appliances, and wiring, among other electrical items. If your electronics or appliances were submerged in the water, make sure a professional checks them before you plug them back into a source of power.
    •    Unpleasant odors – Flooded homes often have unpleasant smells that are difficult to eliminate. After you walk into your flooded home, you may notice a subtle or strong musty odor in it. Using air fresheners or lighting candles cannot mask the smell. Cleaning your home thoroughly and deodorizing it is the only way to get rid of the foul smell.
    •    Loss of value of your home – After a flooding incident, you could face a significant loss of value for your house. Failing to address flood damage adequately can make your home worth less than it is. You can maintain your home’s value if you let our team restore it. Save the paperwork related to the flood restoration project so you can have proof that professionals adequately and properly repaired it. This can help you find a buyer easily when the time to sell your home comes.
    •    Mold development – Molds grow in damp, warm areas with poor ventilation. This kind of environment has nutrients like cardboard, wood, and fabrics, which are an excellent breeding ground for mold.

What is involved in the restoration process?
After arriving at a flood-damaged property, SERVPRO technicians ask several questions to understand the resources and equipment ended to restore it. We perform an inspection and testing to determine the scope of water damage. We describe the current conditions to the customers and explain the restorative process.

It is also critical to remove the water quickly and dispose of it in the right manner. Our team can use various equipment to complete the water removal project. They include:

    •    Powerful pumps to remove the water fast to prevent secondary water damage.
    •    Air moving equipment to improve evaporation at the surface level and reduce drying time.
    •    Dehumidifiers to eliminate moisture from the air. Reducing the amount of moisture in the air lowers the humidity ratio, which helps enhance the evaporation of moisture in the structures and contents of a home.
    •    Moisture detection equipment to take room readings of relative humidity and temperature to gauge the progress.

Our water restoration process also involves cleaning and sanitizing the restoration items that water has damaged.  Some products our SERVPRO crew uses during this process include:

    •    Sanitizers – We use them to reduce the number of microbes to acceptable levels. Sanitizers reduce microbes to the levels public health authorities consider safe.
    •    Disinfectants and germicides – These are antimicrobials that destroy about ninety-nine percent of microorganisms on surfaces where we apply them. They can either affect or not affect fungal spores, which are typically reproductive and dormant bodies.
    •    Antimicrobial agents – These are chemicals used to prevent the development of microorganisms or stop or limit their growth. Examples include mildewstats and fungistats.

We can also perform the necessary repairs based on the restoration plan we have agreed on. Restoration can involve replacing drywall, replacing the carpet, and rebuilding of rooms or affected areas. Our team has the expertise required to provide complete remodeling and reconstruction services.

Is it Necessary to Demolish Walls and Ceilings to Fix Flood Damage?
At times, controlled demolition is a necessary part of restoring a property to fix the flood damage. If some areas within a home such as ceilings, drywall, and flooring have significant damage, we can remove and replace them. We use specific demolition methods so that the structural integrity of a home is not affected. Our team establishes a dryline to ensure that we only get rid of the unsalvageable parts of the affected materials.

Flood damage is challenging to deal with. SERVPRO of Wood River Valley has the equipment, certified technicians, and experience required to restore your property to its preloss state. Call us any time at (208) 788-0183. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

How Do You Remove Soot Residues After Suffering From Fire Damage?

4/29/2020 (Permalink)

A living room with fire and soot damage. Fire damage in your Burley home? Let SERVPRO help.

SERVPRO Can Utilize Various Techniques And Chemicals To Remove Soot Residues From Your Burley Residence

When a fire burns in your house, the smoke generated can flow throughout your home and cause you several other problems than just those created by the heat and flames. Once smoke contacts the cooler surfaces inside your house, such as your walls or ceilings, it can leave behind soils and soot residues.

What Do You Need To Know To Properly Remove All Of The Soot?

When our SERVPRO technicians work towards restoring fire damage in your Burley house, we implement the following principles of cleaning:

  • Locate Smoke Residues: We inspect your entire home to figure out where the smoke went.
  • Identify The Type Of Residues: Once we know what type of fuels burned, we can figure out what kind of residues are present.
  • Identify Type Of Surface: We can use various methods based on whether the affected surfaces are porous or non-porous.
  • Capture And Remove Residues: As a part of cleaning, we can remove residues from the affected surfaces and capture them, so they do not spread to other previously unaffected areas.
  • Dispose Of Soot Residues: Once we capture and remove residues, we then dispose of them in sealed plastic bags.

How Do You Clean Hard, Non-Porous Surfaces?

Non-porous surfaces get cleaned best by using water-based detergents while keeping the following in mind:

  • Chemical Suspension: Soot can be removed from surfaces by using the like dissolves like principle. For example, oil-based cleansers work best with oily residues
  • Proper pH Of Solution: Acidic solutions work best to dissolve alkaline soils and vice versa.
  • Agitation: We often use wet rags to agitate and remove residues.

How Do You Clean Soft, Porous Surfaces?

When cleaning surfaces, we can use dry methods such as dry sponge cleaning to remove soot. Water-based methods do not work well with porous surfaces because the moisture can cause the soot to soak deeper into the material.

If you ever need professional assistance with removing soot from surfaces in your house in Mountain Home or Hailey, call SERVPRO of Wood River Valley at (208) 788-0183 24/7.

Flooding from Ice Dams in Burley

4/23/2020 (Permalink)

Icicles Hang From Ice Dam On Roof No matter how we can help you to make ice dam flooding, “Like it never even happened,” we are standing by at (208) 788-0183.

Steps to Address Flooding from Ice Dams on Burley Roofs

Ice damming can severely cripple the defenses of your Burley home’s roof by allowing a buildup of ice along the edge of the roof that continues to push back into shingles and underlayment. With melting snow happening in rapid freezing conditions, the problem can become so bad that it damages the roof without homeowners realizing it. Attics can become saturated with intruding floodwater when openings exist to your home’s interior.

Flood damage from ice dams on Burley homes is most often directly the result of inadequate insulation in the attic space against the roof. Thinner areas of insulation do not keep the heat inside your house in the cold conditions as they should, and they escape through thinner layers of insulation against the roofing materials. Warm roofs in freezing conditions are the making for damaging conditions like ice dams. Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to address these concerns in multiple ways.

Emergency Repairs
One of the priorities of the responding emergency teams is to allow our in-house residential contactors to set up temporary construction solutions. For damaged roofs, tarping can immediately eliminate further water penetration so that our mitigation technicians can work on evaporative drying solutions for saturated flooring and walls with our centrifugal air movers.

Water removal strategies do not exclusively address surface water pooling above the top layer of flooring materials, but a more general term for reducing moisture trapped in these construction materials as well. Through many tools like our wet vacuums, wands, and drying mats for the unfinished wood flooring, we can get a better handle on flooding conditions that could continually migrate into lower levels of the house.

There are dozens of steps and phases between the first notice of loss when you reach out to our SERVPRO of Wood River Valley emergency team and the work that happens to bring your property back to preloss condition. No matter how we can help you to make ice dam flooding, “Like it never even happened,” we are standing by at (208) 788-0183.

How Do Restoration Professionals in Burley Know They Fully Dry a House? 

4/12/2020 (Permalink)

water damaged home Call our SERVPRO of Wood River Valley team today at (208) 788-0183.

Our SERVPRO Professionals Have Sophisticated Tools and Equipment to Ensure Thorough Drying of Burley Homes

Water damages can occur from so many potential sources and have so many varying origin points that tracking the migration of damage throughout a property can feel impossible at times. Especially with the limited equipment and training that many homeowners have, addressing water losses to their fullest extent as you need can become an overwhelming situation. Many have trusted our experienced professionals to help because we have a fast and confident response that can make water emergencies “Like it never even happened.”

As much as water cleanup in Burley homes might feel like a specific term, it can indicate many of the processes that our SERVPRO team performs. Regardless of what phase of mitigation and restoration we might find ourselves, we can ensure customers that their home is getting thoroughly dried due to many of the direct practices that we implement to ensure that no moisture pockets exist once drying stages have ended.

    •    Moisture Detection Equipment
    •    Efficient Drying and Extraction Tools
    •    Controlled Demolition as Necessary
    •    Continual Monitoring of Progress

Just How Bad is the Damage to My Home?
Understanding the severity of the situation in your home is something that often requires special tools and skilled professionals to learn. It is a rare occurrence that surface water is the only threat that our technicians must address when we arrive at your damaged home, so establishing the migration of water and how to stop this spread is vital to protecting your property and its contents from unnecessary irreparable harm.

Because water losses are such a standard callout for our response team, we have production vehicles that stay stocked with our premier mitigation equipment, but also discovery and detection tools. With these advanced machines and technologies, we can get direct information about the presence of moisture pockets within exposed materials, and the concentrations of dampness and saturation that could indicate issues in structural cavities. We have multiple detection devices to help in this regard, including:

    •    Thermal Imagery
    •    Surface Moisture Meters
    •    Probing Moisture Detection Tools
    •    Hygrometers

How Do You Remove Water Absorbed into Construction Materials?
Removing trapped moisture is a considerable feat for our responding water restoration technicians, as saturation can change the composition of flooring, drywall, and other structural elements. Without addressing the present dampness, the facilitation of mold or deterioration of the material could require its removal.

Extraction Tools
Removing any surface water and pooling is one of the first paths that our SERVPRO technicians have to reduce saturation and absorption of materials in the immediate area. We have multiple potential options to help, including our electric submersible pumps, truck-mount pumps, and industrial-grade wet vacuums.

Efficient Drying Equipment
Drying is critical to protect damaged structural elements and the environment as well. With the deployment of multiple air movers and dehumidifiers, we can manage humidity and airflow, allowing us to evaporate moisture pockets and protect materials and contents more efficiently.

Specialty Drying Units
Surfaces like hardwood flooring and tile can benefit from specialty drying equipment like our floor mat system. This approach draws continual trapped water to the desired moisture content level. Tenting these floor drying mats can maximize their efficiency and allow for more consistent monitoring of progress.

Is Controlled Demolition Always Necessary?
As a reputable restoration team, it is always our intention to reduce the need for tear-out and reconstruction whenever necessary. Because we have in-house contractors experienced in areas like controlled demolition and full-scale reconstruction, we have more versatility in the services we can offer and the effectiveness of our team as a whole.

Careful consideration gets made with almost all of the exposed, affected surfaces to determine their salvageability and what must occur to protect the property as a whole. If it costs more to dry and recover a water-damaged structural element than the material is worth, it is more efficient to discard and replace this material. These decisions often get made during the initial job scoping, but might also get made at later points if drying efforts are more involved or costlier than initially anticipated.

How Can You Be Sure the House is Restored?
Peace of mind that your home is getting sufficiently dried after a water loss incident is not complicated for our SERVPRO professionals to provide. Continued monitoring throughout the drying process and mitigation phases can showcase areas where moisture pockets might still exist, or water has migrated to since the work began. Documenting these ongoing results in exclusive software like DryBook keeps all of our water restorers on the same page about what processes need to be done and the efficiency of specific practices. We do not walk away from any job without assuring ourselves and our customers that the work is done.

Water loss incidents can be a destructive force in your home without a fast response from professionals that can dry and protect exposed materials and contents. Call our SERVPRO of Wood River Valley team today at (208) 788-0183.

Don't Let Flood Damage Impact Your Mountain Home Bakery

 SERVPRO drying equipment in water damaged building We can dry your water damaged building. Call us today!

Removing Commercial Mountain Home Flood Damage from a Local Bakery 

While Idaho business owners may feel safer from ground or flash floods than US entrepreneurs living at or below sea level, the truth is that flooding can happen anywhere and at any time. The nearby Snake River can overflow and overwhelm nearby structures easily, even though elevation levels in Idaho are over 3,000 feet high. Many local businesses, particularly small, single-structure operations, are seldom equipped to address disasters of this scale.  

If your Mountain Home commercial facilities need flood mitigation, SERVPRO can send an emergency response team to your business within hours of your call. This team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, to restore your commercial space and functional, clean, and safe condition for all occupants. These mitigation pros, along with over 1,700 other franchise locations in the US and Canada, are uniquely positioned to respond as quickly as possible to disasters. 

Determining Your Flood Insurance Needs Fast

  • Commercial property insurance does not come with flood coverage. However, you can consult with the National Flood Insurance Program about acquiring flood coverage for your business 
  • Flood insurance covers your building and the contents needed to run your business. Property outside of your building, business vehicles, and financial losses incurred by a disaster are typically not covered.  
  • You can determine flood damage risk by researching local flood maps and FEMA's national flood risk map. 
  • Flood policies do cover mold damage caused by a flood, but not mold that existed before flooding. These claims are assessed on a case-by-case basis to determine appropriate compensation after filing. 

SERVPRO technicians utilize extraction systems that address various depths of floodwaters, as well as auxiliary power sources for them if the power at your facility is out. Before extraction can begin, technicians carefully remove debris and solid contaminants that can affect the safety of your business. Gas-powered submersible pumps are ideal for standing water two inches or more. Squeegees, mops, and extraction wands can remove water from hard flooring surfaces like tile and polished concrete.  

SERVPRO of Wood River Valley can leave your business looking, "Like it never even happened." You can contact (208) 788-0183 24/7 for commercial cleanup services from an experienced emergency-response team.
