5 Ways To Rescue Valuables After a Water Loss

6/14/2021 (Permalink)

water flooding in home Although most of the restoration process should be handled by professionals, following these tips can help save your belongings

If your home in Clovis, CA, is flooded, you may feel overwhelmed by the damage. Before you throw everything out, though, try to salvage as much as you can. Many items can be restored after being subjected to water in the home. Here are five ways to save your valuables.

1. Air Dry

Before restoration experts can save most items, the items will have to dry out a little. Remove them from the water and set them somewhere to dry out. The best place to do this is inside, out of direct sunlight if possible, because sunlight can fade your items.

2. Increase Air Flow

Items that are damp are vulnerable to mold growth. Mold can start to grow as soon as 24 hours after moisture becomes a problem. To combat growth, increase the air-flow around the items with fans, dehumidifiers and open windows.

3. Refrigerate

Water in the home can affect books and important documents. These will likely need to be restored by professionals who specialize in document recovery. Freezing or refrigerating these belongings can slow the water damage until it can be fixed.

4. Rinse

Metal or nonporous items can be rinsed with a garden hose. This gets off most of the dirt and silt so that the object can start to dry. If the finish on your furniture looks damaged, just make sure the piece is dry. A finish can likely be repaired.

5. Dry Clean

Dry cleaning can save most clothing and textiles that are affected by flooding from a broken pipe. The process sanitizes the items without adding more water to them.

Although most of the restoration process should be handled by professionals, following these tips when you have water in the home can help save your valuables. The sooner you remove them from the water and start to dry them, the better chance you have of getting to keep them. For more information, give us a call at 559-297-3429.

Ways To Prevent Water Damage in the Home

6/14/2021 (Permalink)

Give Yourself Peace of Mind by Following These Simple Tips

Check on Appliances Regularly

Household appliances offer convenience and make a lot of tasks easier. Unfortunately, appliances are also among the biggest causes of water in home. At least once a year, you should have a professional tune up your appliances. Some of the biggest culprits for water issues include:

  • Refrigerators
  • Water heaters
  • Dishwashers
  • Washers
  • Ice makers

Repair or Replace the Rain Gutters
A reliable set of rain gutters do an effective job of taking rainwater and melted snow away from your home. However, if your gutters become clogged with dirt and debris, they can have the opposite effect. When the gutters don't divert the water properly, it can rot roof shingles and lead to leaking. Also, if the downspouts aren't sending water away from your house, it will pool by the foundation, increasing the risk of flooding. Look at the gutters and downspouts regularly. Clean them out or buy new ones when necessary.

Inspect the Plumbing
Flooding can be caused by a broken pipe, so have a plumber look at your system each year. If you spot cracks or leaks, repair or replace the pipes immediately.

Insulate the Pipes
Another way to avoid pipe cleanup is to keep them from bursting. You can do this by insulating them in the wintertime when temperatures fall. This will prevent the water from freezing, breaking the pipes.
It's never fun dealing with water in the home, but there are ways to keep this ordeal from happening to you. While professional water mitigation companies can help restore your home, you're better off staying away from flooding problems altogether.

Overlooked Causes of Water Damage

6/2/2021 (Permalink)

water heater A water heater leak can go unnoticed, make sure that yours is properly maintained

Water damage is a serious problem that many people don’t realize can cause other damages like mold as well as get progressively worse if it goes unseen and untreated.

There are many causes of water damage such as plumbing system failures which lead to 48%, more water loss than system material failures which is the second leading cause. A cracked pipe, all it takes is a quarter inch crack to lose 250 gallons of water.  Now imagine a pencil eraser sized crack at a constant rate you can lose up to 500 gallons of water just from a small crack. Washing machine supply lines that fail can lead to water damage, a lot of people forget to check the supply line since they aren’t visible. But wear and tear can cause a water leak. The next cause is also forgotten due to it normally not being visible and that is the water heater. Over the years the tank corrodes and if not maintained it is not uncommon to have a slow leak or burst.

These are just a few things that might be helpful in keeping your home or business from having a water loss. 

Broken Pipe? Remember These Pointers

Leaking Pipe Take action! Don't let a broken pipe situation get any worse than it has to.

A broken pipe can cause a plethora of damage in a very short timeframe so action must be taken immediately as to minimize the loss.

Take the following steps:

  • Find your water main and shut it off immediately.
  • Shut off the electricity if the water is seeping into any of your wiring.
  • Safety first. If you have ceilings ready to drop, stay clear of the area.
  • Open a faucet to help relieve the remaining pressure.
  • Put a bucket under the leak if possible.
  • Start your clean up. Get out the mops and buckets, the wet vac or anything you have and start getting rid of any water you can. The quicker the better to help reduce the spread of the damage and prevent mold.
  • Set up any fans to blow warm air into the impacted rooms.
  • Open doors to closets and pantries to let air in and give it a chance to dry.
  • Clean up any obvious damage as soon as you can.
  • Review your insurance policy and call your agent.

Types of Flooring SERVPRO of Clovis Encounters During Water Damages

6/1/2021 (Permalink)

Water damaged carpet Don't let your flooring mitigation wait! Give us a call at SERVPRO of Clovis to determine the status of your flooring.

SERVPRO of Clovis encounters many types of flooring when servicing water damage losses. There are many variables that determine if the flooring can be saved and this varies from one type of flooring to the next.

The first factor in determining if SERVPRO can save your floor is if the water source is clean water or contaminated, and in what way it may be contaminated. Any water that is contaminated such as water from a drain back up, flooding or water damage that has sat for over three days is considered black water. In all black water scenarios the flooring is unsalvageable and would be removed and disposed of.

If the water is clean and the incident has happened in the last several days, these are the determining factors in saving your floor:

  • Carpet – SERVPRO would extract the water and remove all of the wet pad. Dehumidifiers and air movers would be placed and monitored until the drying is complete. The pad would then be replaced, and the carpet would be re-installed and cleaned.
  • Laminate Flooring – When water gets under laminate flooring, it will need removed and replaced with new flooring.
  • Wood Floors – SERPVRO uses floor drying mats that can be successful in drying wood floors. The amount of water and the type of wood flooring is an important factor on saving a wood floor.
  • Ceramic Tile – The determining factor for saving ceramic tile floors is what is under the floor. If the tile floor is laid over vinyl the floor cannot be saved.  

Call SERVPRO of Clovis at (559)297-3429 and we can assist you with your water loss and determine if your flooring can be saved.

Save Your Clovis Home From Extensive Damage With Prompt Water Removal

water pouring out on living room floor Let SERVPRO help with any water related issues before they cause any further damage.

A Swift Response can Prevent Further Damage and Costs

Flooding is not the only time you can end up with water in your home. No matter why water is present, it must be cleaned up before it can cause damage to your home's interior. No homes are made to withstand the presence of water and can suffer costly damage that affects not only the appearance of your home but also the health and safety of the people who live there.

SERVPRO of Clovis is ready and properly equipped to handle any level of moisture as well as any level of contamination of the water itself. When the water involved is contaminated, our water removal experts also implement measures that prevent the spread of bacteria and any other possible contaminants, such as using a bactericide, which is often sufficient.
 
Water, as a fluid, easily permeates many areas and items in a home that you may not think to check or easily has access to dry yourself. For example water may travel under cabinetry, into crawl spaces, or absorb into drywall or insulation. These areas and materials can retain a significant amount of water and must be included in water removal efforts.
 
Any left-over moisture can spell bigger problems in the future. Even slightly raised humidity levels can put a home at risk of water damage such as disintegrating walls and mold growth.We apply concrobium to surfaces that are at highest risk for developing mold, as it has been shown to prevent mold from growing while still being safe to use around children and pets. 

Whatever your water problems may be, SERVPRO of Clovis is here to help. Give us a call at (559) 297-3429 and we can get the water removal process started as soon as possible to get your home dry and comfortable once again.

Pros Know Best

When water damage resulting from sewage issues or some other problem affects your property, you need to take effective action immediately. Although the water issue may seem minor, it can cause substantive damage to your house if it is not eliminated quickly and correctly. And while you may be inclined to start the water removal process on your own, it is important always to have this work completed by a team of professionals from SERVPRO of Clovis.

Here are several reasons why:

Water Damage Is Progressive

Water damage can worsen with each passing moment. The longer you postpone calling water damage restoration experts to fix the problems, the greater the damages will be. Apart from obvious damage to contents and building materials, you may also be victimized by a mold infestation if the water is not removed promptly. Exposure to fungi may cause health effects as well as increase restoration costs.

Sewage Water is Dangerous

If the excessive water on your property contains sewage, it is very dangerous. In fact, sewage water contains pathogens, pesticides, and waste matter. Black water causes health implications if you come in contact with this type of water. Contact professionals who can remove the sewage water quickly and safely. Don't attempt to do it yourself. Training, specialized equipment, and hazmat clothing are required for a return of safety to your property.

Electrical Hazards

Water, being a conductor of electricity, can send shocks powerful enough to cause electrocution under some circumstances. Whether you're dealing with black, gray or clean water, the extraction process brings with it electrical hazards. Don't subject yourself to the risk of electrocution. Instead, allow the experienced professionals from SERVPRO Clovis to complete the process for you. These individuals possess the knowledge and hands-on experience necessary to complete the process in a safe manner that precludes you and them from experiencing illness or injury.

Flood Warning Tips

6/4/2019 (Permalink)

Be prepared for when a flood comes your way.

Failing to evacuate flooded areas, entering flood waters, or remaining after a flood has passed can result in injury or death. Flooding is a temporary overflow of water onto land that is normally dry. Floods are the most common natural disaster in the United States. Floods may:

  • Result from rain, snow, coastal storms, storm surges, and overflows of dams and other water systems.
  • Develop slowly or quickly - flash floods can come with no warning.
  • Cause outages, disrupt transportation, damage buildings, and create landslides.
  • IF YOU ARE UNDER A FLOOD WARNING, FIND SAFE SHELTER RIGHT AWAY
  • Do not walk, swim or drive through flood waters. Turn Around, Don't Drown!
  • Just six inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
  • Stay off bridges over fast-moving water.
  • Determine how best to protect yourself based on the type of flooding.
  • Evacuate if told to do so.
  • Move to higher ground or a higher floor.
  • Stay where you are.

Water Saving Tips For This Summer

6/4/2019 (Permalink)

This summer may be really hot, but save the water and your bill.

Every state is experiencing the effects of drought, and saving water is on everyone’s mind these days. We waste a lot of water; our showers are too long, and we are often obsessed with an emerald green lawn. We need to change the way we handle and view water and leave behind the outdated and inefficient water management systems of the past.

Here are some tips that will help you save water this summer. Your water bill will be reduced, and you can save yourself some time into the bargain as well as doing some good for the Earth.

  1. Water your yard in the cool parts of the day. Water evaporates more quickly when it’s hot, so run your irrigation system while it’s most likely to stay with your lawn. Make sure you are not watering your sidewalk or your driveway, too. A drip system works quite well in this respect. Replacing your thirsty lawn with a drought tolerant garden would be a great way to save water, and it won’t have to be mowed every week!
  2. Check for leaky toilets. Put a few drops of food coloring into the tank. If the color shows up in the bowl, your tank is leaking, and could be wasting up to 100 gallons of water a day!
  3. Take shorter showers. Trimming just two minutes off of your showers can save up to 1700 gallons of water a year. One way to do this is to turn off the shower while you shave or soap up. Install water-efficient shower heads, toilets, and faucets for a savings of thousands of gallons per year as well.
  4. Cover the pool. Make sure the water in your pool stays there by covering it when you are not using it. This will prevent water loss by evaporation.
  5. Use a car wash. When you are washing your car by hand can easily use 100 gallons of water, and takes a lot of time and effort, as well. Commercial car washes average 40 gallons or less!
  6. Trap rain water. Collect the water from summer rain storms by getting a water barrel. You can reuse this water for your garden. Green roofs, rain gardens, and other water-saving techniques are called green infrastructure and go a long way towards saving this most precious resource. More and more landowners and city governments are choosing to invest in these and other innovative strategies as ways to save water, reduce pollution, and save millions, and even billions, in costs for new water tanks, tunnels, and other traditional water infrastructures.

Category 3 Water Damage

5/2/2019 (Permalink)

Sewage water is contaminated water which is category 3.

There are many water sources that contribute to your water damage, and they are classified as Category 1 (Clean Water), Category 2 (Gray Water), and Category 3 (Black Water). Out of the three categories, category 3 is the most unsanitary type of water damage. 

Flood water is one source of unsanitary water in a home or business.  This is something to be aware of as we enter hurricane season.  But the most common source of category 3 water is a sewer back up. Any porous materials that come in contact with the contaminated water should be removed and disposed. This includes carpet, carpet pad, and drywall.

Our water technicians are all IICRC certified and trained and know what to do, and the steps to take, in cleaning up category 3 water.  We know how stressful water damage can be, and they are there to help guide you through any water situation that you encounter.

Remember, the sooner you mitigate your water damage, the less chance you have of major repairs.  Give us a call at 559-297-3429 – we’re here to help!
