How Does Carpet Water Removal Equipment Work?

8/24/2020 (Permalink)

wet carpet in a daycare center Rely on SERVPRO to Dry and Restore Your Water Damaged Contents--from carpets to structure--we protect Nutley Homes and Businesses

There are several specialty water extraction tools for carpeting that can protect these flooring materials when mitigation gets started quickly.

Mitigation can best get defined as the series of actions taken by water restoration companies like our SERVPRO team to help Nutley homes reduce their total loss after a disaster. There are many stages and individual steps that fall under this heading. Flooring is often among the first materials and structural elements of a house to become impacted by water damages, making it a focal point for the initial choices made to protect the property and its contents. Water removal tools vary considerably based on the affected materials, and carpeted floors can be among the most readily damaged ones with high permeability and porosity.

What Tools Are Vital in Removing Water from Carpets?

Water mitigation in Nutley homes might encompass many individual strategies, but water extraction from exposed carpeting can help to protect both the surface layers and the underlying subflooring when performed promptly. This process involves multiple tools in our restoration inventory, including:

  • Carpet Wands – Light wands are an attachment for extraction devices that can pull moisture from both the fibers of a carpet. These often get used when the padding is removed and replaced, but the carpet can still be preserved. 
  • Weighted Extractors – Using the weight of restorers on stationary devices or ride-on devices, the padding and carpet layers can get pressed against the subflooring to force moisture to the surface for collection by a vacuum. 
  • Floor Mat Drying Systems – Pulling away the carpet layer can often reveal the early stages of subflooring damage. Floor mats can slowly draw moisture from the OSB underlayment to prevent tear-out. 

Removing water from flooring materials is a vital element of water mitigation that our SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield team can provide. Give us a call to help after a water disaster at (973) 662-0062.

Aren’t All Water Restoration Companies in the Bloomfield Area the Same?

SERVPRO Equipment and technicians We understand the need for rapid response and restoration to minimize the loss of your business property. Call us right away we are available 24/7.

Your Business Has the Best Chance of Rebounding from Significant Damage When Your Choice from Among Local Water Restoration Companies Is a Full-Service Firm Like SERVPRO.

Shopping around for a premier water restoration company in Bloomfield is a challenge. Unlike the methodical process you may use when planning for other major purchase business shopping, you are responding to a crisis situation, often with little to no first-hand knowledge of what you need or want to find in a water mitigation, remediation, and restoration firm. You have to think and act fast. Add to this the pressure of cold-sales tactics if your water loss is due to a storm or other natural disaster.

Should I Grab the First Pitch I Receive from a Water Restoration Company?

Especially if some of your business neighbors are also in need of water restoration companies in Bloomfield, you might be in fear of a long wait time before your job is even assessed. Please resist the temptation to hire an itinerant water damage company because they claim to be able to help immediately. You might rue your choice when problems crop up pertaining to their work long after they move on to the next town or neighborhood hit by a disaster. Instead, inquire locally and be upfront about your concerns around waitlists and the risk of additional damage if you do not receive help quickly. 

Why Are Local Water Restoration Companies Usually a Better Fit?

A water restoration business in our community can be vetted by talking to friends and neighbors who used them in the past. You can speak directly to the management of the company and research their record with the Better Business Bureau or other community industry organizations. Local restoration companies often scale their response to a disaster up and down by reaching out to networks of other restoration companies they built over time, making them able to help more customers than you might have thought was possible.

Are Water Restoration Companies Limited in the Tasks They Can Do?

When your commercial property suffers from a water event, whether it is a flood, plumbing break, appliance malfunction, or something else, many tasks need to be completed to bring your business operations back to the point where it looks and feels “Like it never even happened.” Some water restoration companies can only provide water extraction and drying services, leaving customers on their own to find other contractors to take care of the collateral damage done by a water crisis. 

What Is the Answer to a Short List of Options?

A firm like SERVPRO offers wrap-around services designed to transform your business property back to preloss condition. We invest in the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training and licenses needed for our team to manage the water damage as an “assessment to build back” project. We save our customers time and money with this approach and relieve the stress on business owners using our services. You do not need to act as a general contractor, lining up one company after another for each phase of the water cleanup and restoration agenda.

What Are Some Other Characteristics That Make Our Company Stand Out?

In addition to the wrap-around rebuilding opportunities and IICRC training and certification, we also prioritize extensive inventories of state-of-the-art equipment, tested proprietary cleaning and disinfecting products, and rapid response. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, stocking our signature green service vehicles with:

  • Onboard generators and gas-powered pumps if the electricity is shut down at your business or in an entire neighborhood
  • A vast array of extractors, tools, and devices focused on the water restoration process
  • EPA-registered cleaners and antimicrobials 

Can I Count on Long Term Support if Needed?

We do not count you as a customer for just one job. Once you reach out, we are committed to building a relationship that you can rely upon far into the future. Any questions or concerns you have about today’s water restoration project are answerable now or months or years later. Our goal is to support you and other community members with every decision we make, skill we learn, and innovative equipment or products we introduce.

How Can Thermal Imaging Cameras Help Locate Water Within My Home?

8/6/2020 (Permalink)

Thermal imaging device You can depend on our experienced technicians to respond quickly with the proper tools and equipment your home needs after a water intrusion.

SERVPRO has an array of advanced equipment for precise water location in your Nutley property.

One way SERVPRO techs evaluate a property quickly to ascertain an accurate scale of the damage is through the use of various types of detection equipment. Thermal imaging cams are useful for finding and monitoring moisture levels in building materials, including showing how the water migrated throughout the home and indicates moisture that may not have been uncovered. It works by showing not images but infrared images that pinpoint collections of moisture and allow the techs to peer behind walls and ceilings without the need for removal. 

What Can Happen If Flood Damage Gets Missed During Cleanup?  

The use of various types of detection equipment during flood damage cleanup in a Nutley home is crucial because the longer elevated moisture conditions remain on-site, the more damage they do to building materials and contents. Common water damage issues are:  

  • Deterioration of sheetrock shown through buckling or warping
  • Establishment of mold colonies
  • Loss of adhesion of tile and glue-down carpet
  • Swelling or cracking of wood furnishings that absorbed water

The techniques carefully scope the property so they can be sure to extract all of the water and leave nothing behind. SERVPRO techs set drying goals that ensure the environment is not sustainable for mold spore germination or growth and monitor the process carefully while the drying equipment runs. Afterward, the use of professional cleaning agents leaves surfaces clean and without a trace of the flood loss. A final sweep with the detection equipment ensures that the property verifies as dry and free from any remaining moisture from the floodwater.

SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield at (973) 662-0062 when you need fast, expert restoration from flood damage. The techs have ongoing education in the latest techniques to make the loss to your property, "Like it never even happened."

Should I Continue Trying to Handle Mold Damage in My Nutley House on My Own?

SERVPRO's Mold Remediation Crews Are Ready to Break the Cycle and Inhibit Future Fungal Infestation

The presence of mold in your Nutley home can be an embarrassment and a worry with all the media attention concerning potential health effects. If you have what seems to you to be a "low level" recurrent mold issue, it is understandable that you try to manage it on your own.

How Successful Are DIY Mold Removal Efforts?

Part of the job of professional mold remediation in Nutley is education about the life cycle and growth habit of mold. Consumer "mold remover" products and homemade diluted bleach solutions are often employed to rid an area of mold. Unfortunately, these cleaning products' high water contents do not deliver the antimicrobial intensity needed to destroy deeply embedded hyphae (the foot-like filaments that make up a mold organism). The bleach can lighten the staining, but the extra water can actually feed the mold you hoped to eliminate.

Is There a Better Answer for Mold Management?

SERVPRO offers mold remediation following the industry-standard set forth by the IICRC-Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification. We use the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols and approved products:

  • Locate the mold growth -- testing is rarely required because the problem becomes self-evident with staining, visual glimpses of the organisms, and a musty smell
  • Containment -- employing 1.6 mil polyethylene, temporary enclosures sealed with negative pressure air scrubbing technology
  • Removal -- scraping, brushing, HEPA-filtered vacuuming, and using gentle abrasive blasting with soda, dry ice, and more
  • Disposal -- double-bagging debris and following local regulation for hazardous waste
  • Disinfect -- treating with EPA-registered antimicrobials to inhibit mold rebound

Our AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians are certified and receive on-going training. This is Why SERVPRO is the choice to return your home to its preloss condition, "Like it never even happened."

Consult with the professionals at SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield when persistent mold causes concern. Arrange for an assessment by calling (973) 662-0062.

What Causes Smoke Odors in My Bloomfield Home After a Fire?

7/26/2020 (Permalink)

kitchen of a house burnt from a fire Fires can leave lingering smells and odors in your home. Contact SERVPRO for smoke odor removal in your home.

Our professionals work around the clock to address lingering fire loss effects like odors after a disaster.

Fires are a traumatic situation for your Bloomfield home and can leave you facing multiple obstacles simultaneously to return your property to its original condition. As challenging as these circumstances might be, it is rarely something homeowners can address on their own. The inclusion of qualified restoration technicians like ours can help the process to become more efficient.

The smells of these disasters can often be one of the most significant hurdles specifically because fire smoke odor removal in Bloomfield homes does not happen until the final stages of restoration in most cases. The solution is to lessen the impact of these conditions through deliberate cleaning and recovery tactics and utilize cutting-edge equipment and products at the appropriate times to neutralize odors. Once you have notified our SERVPRO team of a fire loss or active extinguishment taking place, we can arrive to begin the first step: emergency services and recovery.

Do Emergency Services Lessen Smoke Odors?

Emergency services work to help the property in many ways after a loss incident. Our in-house contractors and skilled restoration technicians work together on multiple strategies to reduce the presence and severity of odors and other fire loss conditions in Bloomfield homes. Several approaches can address the present smoke and burning smells throughout the damaged areas of your home even before official deodorization gets underway, and some of these are:

  • Debris Removal – Piles of ash and debris throughout the property can be hotspots for foul odors after a loss. The sooner these burned remnants of contents and structural elements can be removed, the less severe the odor situation can become. 
  • Surface Cleaning - Smoke residues occur from several types of fires with different materials burned. Wet smoke is a challenging coating to remove, and can also produce strong odors for our technicians to face. 
  • Content Management - How fire effects like odors impact the personal belongings throughout the house, including sensitive materials like clothing, furniture, and other fabrics, can lead to a need for content cleaning and deodorization to protect these items. 

What Are the Best Deodorization Tools?

Deodorization approaches vary substantially from one fire-damaged property to the next, as there are multiple suitable solutions to remove lingering scents. The choice between the powerful tools in our inventory often falls to the placement of damage, the severity and spread of these effects, and whether the occupants of the house have gotten removed temporarily. The three primary types of deodorizing tools used in these situations include:

  • Hydroxyl Generators
  • Ozone Machines
  • Thermal/ULV Foggers

Choosing among these machines involves a careful assessment of the damaged area and the severity of the present odors. Occupants or pets in the house during restoration can impact the deodorizing techniques used, as highly efficient odor removal tactics like ozone cannot get used in an occupied dwelling.

What Happens to Odor-Damaged Contents?

Content management is often one of the first actions taken to protect your property and its belongings after a fire. Some of the more damaged items encountered by our technicians get relocated to our SERVPRO facility for focused cleaning and deodorization. Off-site recovery can allow our team to safely store our customers' belongings until in-house restoration and cleaning complete. Actions taken in our facility to clean and deodorize materials pulled from an extinguished structure fire include:

  • Ozone Chamber Deodorization - This larger work area presents a safe space for harmful ozone to dissipate before we go in and collect the lot of items recovered simultaneously. We can often deodorize entire rooms' worth of contents at once.
  • Ultrasonic Tank Soot Cleaning - Immersion tanks are ideal for hard objects covered with soot and smoke residues. Bubbles generated by vibrations burst on the surface of impacted materials to break up challenging coatings. 
  • Thorough Water-Damage Drying - Extinguishment tactics often leave many of the items recovered from the house damp or heavily water damaged. We have effective drying techniques to help. 

When Does Odor Removal Happen?

Odor removal is often one of the final steps of recovery and restoration. Many of the tactics for mitigation and emergency services can lessen the severity of present odors. However, the last official neutralization occurs along with the cleaning stages that often accompany reconstruction.

Fire odors can be a challenging obstacle for even our experienced SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield team to face. We have a fast response with experienced professionals and cutting-edge equipment to make a difference quickly. However we can help, you can call us anytime at (973) 662-0062.

If a Pipe is Still Leaking, can SERVPRO Help with Water Removal in My Bloomfield Property?

Water Removal in My Bloomfield Property

Shutting off the main valve keeps additional water from escaping into your home through cracked pipes, loosened joints, or pinholes. While off, our plumbing experts from our building department can repair the areas involved in soaking your property. We use thermal imaging technology during water removal jobs in Bloomfield to detect all of the leaks, including ones you might not know exist.

What if My House Contains Mystery Water?

A plumbing malfunction is only one of many different ways that your house might get wet on the inside. Rain or snow might cause problems for you if your house’s exterior contains gaps within siding or shingles. Appliances can also be guilty of dumping water on your floors. Our infrared cameras often help solve the issue of mystery water and locations where dampness exists.

Can I have SERVPRO get My House Back to Normal Again?

Yes! We can undo the changes made by water leaking into your Bloomfield house. Because other things happen besides just getting wet, SERVPRO’s technicians receive extensive training regarding how water affects modern housing. Even durable materials like brick and stone can sustain damage under damp conditions.

Other unwanted situations can develop from water invading your property’s interior. SERVPRO can assist you with each one. These damaging conditions include:
    •    Microbial infestations like mold and mildew,
    •    Damage to wood floors, including finished ones and subflooring, and
    •    Increased humidity in the air, among others.

Each of these changes inside your dwelling can lead to additional problems if left unchecked. They do not go away on their own. One of the common tasks in rectifying these three above involves setting up desiccant machines to swiftly remove excessive amounts of water vapor from the air. This directly affects how fast solid materials dry out within your house.

Other aspects of water removal include drying personal belongings and household goods, inspecting, and repairing damaged electrical systems. We can also inspect and clean your HVAC system.

To ensure your house receives timely and competent water removal services, call SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield at (973) 662-0062. Our technicians and specialists are available 24/7, year-round, including weekends and holidays.

What Unexpected Issues Can We Run Into During Water Mitigation At Our Nutley Drugstore?

6/22/2020 (Permalink)

A man and woman at a drugstore counter. Water issues at your Nutley drugstore? Call SERVPRO today, we can be there to assist.

SERVPRO Has Extensive Experience Handling Water Loss Situations Which Can Help Identify and Fix Problematic Issues

Water use in Nutley drugstores is usually minimal, apart from the restroom or a sink for your customers. However, a sudden release of water from these areas can damage your store extensively. Alternatively, pipes running through the ceiling or walls can leak, causing damages. Whatever the source of the leak, SERVPRO technicians can help you take the appropriate mitigation steps, including dealing with unexpected problems that crop up.

What should be the main priority when mitigating water loss?

Any plans created for a water mitigation exercise in your Nutley drugstore should take into account several factors:

  • The possibility of damage spreading to unaffected areas
  • The effects of moisture on stocked items
  • Long-term effects of water exposure to the building or fixtures

Since most water spills originate from a single source point, the initial damage is mostly localized to a section of the property. However, moisture migration through absorption by building materials or evaporation through the air can spread damage all over the store. Our SERVPRO technicians consider factors such as whether the water has pooled around the floors or other surfaces. Stagnant water seeps into floor materials, evaporates, or wicks through walls the longer it remains unaddressed, complicating the mitigation process. 

Preventing the unfettered spread of moisture is crucial to avoid damage in unexpected areas of the store. Our crews can help by expediting the water extraction process since we have a wide range of extraction equipment, including self-propelled and stationery deep extractors and regular water extraction units. Another alternative is to separate the wet sections from the rest of the store, especially if there are separate rooms. We do this by setting up containment with 6-mil plastic sheets to limit air movements. 

What logistical problems can water spills at a drugstore present?

Although water intrusion into any business premises can be destructive, it is more challenging at a drugstore where the changes that develop can damage most of the items in stock. For instance:

  • Medical products require a dry place for storage
  • High humidity in the air can damage the product packaging
  • Water intrusions and restoration processes change temperatures damaging products

Proper planning can help minimize or overcome the challenges, thus avoiding logistical problems. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate the loss at your facility to determine what steps are necessary to safeguard your stock. For instance, we can pack out items off the shelves or other storage areas in your facility to protect them from the wet environment. Because of several small-sized items, proper packing arrangements are necessary. Our SERVPRO crews help by providing boxes for packing and tagging them correctly to indicate what they contain, among other crucial information. Such actions may seem trivial, but they make it easier to rearrange the store once the water problem is resolved. 

What technical aspects should we be aware of when resolving water damage?

Resolving water loss is expected to be a straightforward process since it only requires extracting water and drying or removing wet materials. However, some situations arise that add technical challenges to the processes.

  • Aerosolized contaminants from drying processes
  • Equilibrium moisture content interfering with drying
  • Water reaching hidden cavities

Drying wet materials, including assemblies such as shelves, requires enhanced evaporation rates. Setting up air movers around the facility can help provide the necessary air movements for the right evaporation rate. However, air movers can aerosolize contaminants creating other problems. Our SERVPRO technicians use air filtration devices to remove particulate matter from the air, ensuring we do not contaminate your workplace in the process of restoring water damage.

The drying process depends on the temperature and humidity levels in the property. The process can stop if porous materials, including wood, attain EMC, Equilibrium Moisture Content. Although the materials are not dry at this point, they do not release moisture because the surrounding air is saturated with humidity. Failure to address this would lead to a long drawn or stuck restoration process. Equilibrium moisture content occurs at specific temperatures and relative humidity. Our technicians monitor the drying process regularly using a wide range of tools, including thermo-hygrometers and moisture meters, and vary air currents and temperature to ensure that such equilibrium does not occur.  

A tiled floor can give you a false sense of security that moisture cannot reach the sublevels. However, unsealed grout or cracks can allow such intrusion. Our crews inspect the floor with thermal cameras to ensure we do not leave hidden moisture in place, which can cause problems in the future. 

A simple water loss can lead to complicated problems if mishandled. Call SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield at (973) 662-0062 to help mitigate any issue, "Like it never even happened."

What Is the Role of Detergents in Restoration of Nutley Fire Damage?

Training in the Science of Soot Removal Guide SERVPRO's Fire Restoration in Nutley

Lots of different products are touted as being "the" answer to tough cleaning jobs like those encountered after fire damage to your Nutley house. Relying on just one cleaner and technique is a mistake. Depending on the following conditions during the blaze, the types of soiling and practical methods to eliminate them vary:

  • Materials consumed or heated by the fire
  • Temperature reached during the fire
  • Oxygen levels during the fire
  • Water or other fluid levels in the materials consumed

How Do the Referenced Variables Affect the Soot Deposited?

When planning the phases of fire restoration for your Nutley house, we pay attention to the residues' characteristics and quantities. Wood and paper burn hot and nearly completely, leaving loose, dry ash we can brush, vacuum, and sponge away. When plastics, rubber, and other synthetics burn, the fire smolders at lower temperatures, depositing thick, sticky residues. Protein-based fires coat surfaces with greasy soiling, consisting of dehydrated foodstuffs and oils. Vacuuming and brushing are not enough for the last two types of soot.

If Brushing and Vacuuming Are Not Effective, What Works?

Protein-based coatings usually require a solvent and abrasive tools or products to loosen. Spray and wipe efforts are useful for the thick soot produced by synthetics or damp organic materials, but the selection of cleaning products to add to the spray is critical. SERVPRO managers and technicians are familiar with matching water-based cleaning products with water-based soot, and oil-based cleaning products (solvents) with oil-based soot.

How Do Detergents Fit into the Puzzle?

Often the soot deposited has both water and oil-based origins. Changing the characteristics of the additives is impractical inch by inch. What does rise to the occasion is employing detergents, which bridge the differences between water and oil-based products. Detergent molecules have a water-loving head and an oil-loving tail, permitting this cleaning aid to break up and emulsify both kinds of residues, holding them suspended in the cleaning solution to be rinsed off or picked up by cloths, towels, or sponges.
