How Can SERVPRO Help Restore Your Belongings After a Fire?

3/3/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO’s top priority is making sure that your space and belongings are safe after you’ve suffered fire damage. Our team is dedicated to restoring your belongings and making sure you need to replace as little as possible. There are four ways this is done:

  1. Contents Restoration
    1. SERVPRO professionals will use several methods to clean your belongings, including dry or wet cleaning, sprays, and foam, abrasive, and immersion cleaning.
  2. Move-Outs/Pack-Outs
    1. If your home or office requires more extensive restoration or cleaning, SERVPRO may conduct a move-out. This ensures a quicker remodeling process and the protection of your belongings from further damage.
  3. Electronic Cleanup 
    1. It is important to avoid turning on fire-damaged electronics such as TVs, DVD players, or computers. If your electronics have been damaged, SERVPRO will coordinate the restoration by having them professionally cleaned and inspected by an electronics technician.
  4. Document/Photograph Drying 
    1. Photographs and important documents are priceless, and at SERVPRO we know that precious items like these are irreplaceable. While there is never a guarantee that your documents can be restored to their pre-fire conditions, our SERVPRO professionals will do our best to save them via air drying, dehumidification, freezer drying, and vacuum freeze or thermal drying.

Benefits of Our Advanced Technology and Services

2/2/2022 (Permalink)

Life happens-- things get spilled, pets have accidents or track mud through the house, factories have spills, among all the other things life can throw at you. Luckily, SERVPRO is here to help you with any clean-up you may need! We can help clean up messes you may not have even known were there! 

Here’s how we do it:

Carpet

  • Bonnet Cleaning: A less aggressive method for short piled carpets. Carpets that are cleaned using this method also tend to dry in 30 minutes or less, and spots and stains are less likely to return in comparison with other carpet cleaning methods. 
  • Hot Water Extraction: A deeper cleaning method for all carpet types. Hot water extraction is an eco-friendly way to get dust and allergens out of your carpet while also disinfecting it. This method is also ideal for commercial carpet cleaning, as it’s much more gentle than many other carpet cleaning methods. 
  • Deluxe Precondition and Rinse: Helps restore deeply soiled areas by removing deep stains and conditioning your carpet. This method can also help to restore carpet piles and is ideal for the restoration of water-damaged carpets.
  • Showcase Premier Cleaning: The most thorough cleaning method in the industry. Showcase Premier Cleaning is a 2-step process where the carpet is shampooed and then conditioned and rinsed. This is also the ideal cleaning method for carpet restoration after fire damage. 
  • Dry Cleaning: When color-fastness is an issue. Dry cleaning allows you to break down dirt by applying a pre-treating agent prior to the use of other cleaning methods. 

Air Duct/HVAC

When it comes to your air ducts or HVAC system, it’s all about preventative maintenance. SERVPRO professionals will inspect your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning units and help you to keep them clean, saving you money that you may have otherwise spent on repairs and keeping your air fresh! It can also help to prevent or eliminate odors or mold. 

Ceilings, Walls, and Hard Floors

While your ceilings, walls, or hard floors may not look dirty, they probably are. These parts of your home are exposed to things like cooking oil, pet dander, and dust, among other things, every single day! This means that even if your home or office looks clean, they’re most likely beginning to accumulate soil. 

Using our advanced cleaning methods, SERVPRO can help you restore your ceilings, walls, and hard floors and get them looking brand new without needing a coat of paint! If you are planning on painting, however, it’s still a good idea to get your walls professionally cleaned first-- that way, you can be sure your primer and paint will adhere to the wall properly!

Why Customers Love SERVPRO

WHEN a pipe on the second floor of his mother’s house burst, Brian knew exactly whom he was going to call – SERVPRO.

“The burst had probably happened at least a day before, and the heater had been running non-stop, flooding the whole of the downstairs,” he said.

But an earlier experience of a similar flood years before meant Brian had no qualms whatsoever when his insurance agent gave him a list of approved contractors.

“SERVPRO was on the list so I just said call them,” said Brian. “The earlier leak was at least 15 years ago and was nowhere near as bad as this one as the water had only been running an hour, but they came immediately, dried the carpets, and did the tests for mildew and mold. They were quick and efficient.”

“I was comfortable with using SERVPRO and just automatically said use them again.”

And Brian was delighted to discover the service was just as good with the new flood. “They did the full water mitigation and clean up,” he said. “Their team had to cut up pretty much two feet on every wall, and even cut out some ceilings from where the water had come through from the floor above.”

“The house was trashed with water and stuff all over the place, but the SERVPRO team was fast. They had all the furniture moved, carpets out and demolition done in a couple of days, and drying equipment brought in.”

Now SERVPRO is helping Brian reconstruct his mother’s home in Cuyahoga Falls and said: “My contact at SERVPRO, Joanne, walked us through everything. I was especially happy as my mom is 80 and she took the time to make sure she understood everything that was happening.”

“I would absolutely recommend SERVPRO to other people,” said Brian.

Mold Cleaning Services

1/25/2022 (Permalink)

Mold in your home or business is a very serious problem that typically needs to be dealt with right away. If a source of water is present, such as after storm damage or a flood, the chances are that the resulting mold will ultimately make the damage worse. On top of this, mold can also produce allergens and irritants that present a health hazard.

SERVPRO uses a 7-step mold remediation process: 

  1. Contact SERVPRO
  2. Inspection and damage assessment
  3. Mold containment
  4. Air filtration
  5. Removal of mold and infested materials 
  6. Cleaning contents and belongings
  7. Restoration

Because every mold infestation is different, each individual scenario typically requires a unique variation on these seven steps. Rest assured that while these seven steps serve as a baseline approach to mold remediation, our professional team at SERVPRO will always work with you to develop a unique solution. 

In addition to cleaning up the mold in your home or business, it’s also important to take care of the source of the mold. For example, most mold infestations are a result of water damage from an event such as a storm or flood. Of course, once your mold remediation has been completed, SERVPRO is happy to help you with these issues, as well.

How SERVPRO will Assist in Storm Damage Cleanup

12/21/2021 (Permalink)

Storm damage is a problem that should be remedied as soon as possible. The longer you let storm damage go, the worse (and more expensive to clean up and repair) it will get. 

Winter weather is fast approaching in Northeast Ohio, and while that may mean there will likely be a lower chance of flooding as a result of storms, that does not mean that winter storms can’t cause damage. In fact, flooding may still be a very real concern depending on temperature fluctuations. 

As a company who provides 24-hour emergency services, SERVPRO will get to the location of your storm damage faster than anyone else. Our highly trained storm damage specialists will work as fast as possible to get your property back in tip-top shape. Since our franchises are locally owned, you can also rest easy knowing that your storm damage is being repaired and restored by local experts who know exactly what materials will stand up to the weather in your area in the future. 

No matter how severe your storm damage may be, we’re confident that our SERVPRO technicians will get your home or business back up to par in record time while treating you and your loved ones with the utmost compassion throughout the process.

SERVPRO: An Advocate Who Will Stand up to Insurance Companies for You

9/6/2021 (Permalink)

Having a disaster happen to your property can be a stressful time for you as the owner. Not only are you required to handle the cleanup of the disaster, but you have to deal with filing a claim with your insurance company.

Insurance companies are typically very difficult to work with, as it is hard to understand some of their lingo if you are not familiar with restoration terms. 

The simplest solution is to hire an advocate that will fight your insurance company for you. Not only are you getting a top-of-the-line restoration specialist, but you are also hiring someone to work with your insurance company directly.

SERVPRO offers to handle your insurance company for you, therefore you do not need to have a middle man to pass along information to the insurance company. This prevents there being any chance of miscommunication between the company you have hired to fix your home and your insurance company. 

SERVPRO offers high-quality restoration services and is also able to work directly with your insurance company. We can help manage your insurance process and your paperwork. It is important to hire a company that is willing to advocate for you, not simply get the job done at a low standard. 

SERVPRO has a team of highly vetted professionals who want the best for your property. Our team is familiar with much of the language insurance companies use and will look out for you during the process.

SERVPRO of Canton is here to help you 24-7, 365 days, including holidays and weekends.

Predictions and statements from The National Interagency Fire Center have been confusing as of late. Spring 2019 wildfire activity should be normal, they also stated that late summer wildfire activity may be especially severe in some areas. 

The Forest Service claims that each year, the season for wildfires becomes longer and hotter. 

Do Your Due Diligence

Cooking remains top of the list for residential fires. Continue to be aware of your surroundings, and use caution when you prepare meals. Accidents happen, but safety measures can help prevent some accidents.

Another area on the rise is rental property structural fires. Vacation rentals using places like Airbnb are not held to the same standards as hotels and the like. Look for these safety precautions in the places you visit and stay as a traveler. And, renal owners, equipping your facility with fire-prevention tools and information is protection for both you and your guests that may be well-worth the investment.

Here are the top fire safety tips for you to follow:

  1. Keep the stovetop clear of anything that could catch fire (i.e. towels or curtains)

  2. Electrical outlets should remain free of adapters and multiple cords.

  3. Pathways around the home need to be clear to avoid tripping (including holiday decorations).

  4. A designated outdoor smoking area (when allowed) should be placed far enough away from the building with a specific, safe discard bin for butts (i.e. a deep, sturdy ashtray).

  5. Teach children 9-1-1 or local emergency number, how, and when to call from cell phones or outside telephones.

  6. Create a designated family meet-up place a safe distance from the home in case of an emergency.

  7. Doors and windows leading outside should have the ability to open.

  8. Identify escape routes from each room in the house, and routinely go through them, in the event of an emergency.

  9. Memorize the address of your home and any vacation rental you visit (each member of the family).

  10. Ensure vacation rental has printed and visible floor plan of property with escape routes, exits, and emergency contact information.

  11. Place carbon monoxide alarms in various locations throughout the home as required by law, codes, or standards such as every level of the home and outside each bedroom.

  12. Portable fire extinguishers should be easily found and reached in the home.

  13. Install smoke alarms on every level, in rooms, and outside bedrooms (look into requirements) and check them regularly; interconnecting them works best so when one sounds, they all sound.

Accidents DO happen and we know that you will have emergency services. SERVPRO of Canton is here to help you 24-7, 365 days, including holidays and weekends. Our well-trained professionals are here to make it “Like it never even happened.”

How does hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean affect Stark County? Peak hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean is from mid-August to late October. However hurricanes can occur anytime in the hurricane season: June to the end of November.  It has been recorded that hurricanes or tropical storms have brought significant rainfall to our Ohio Valley.  Since 1876 remnants of 58 recorded storms have produce rainfall our area. During Hurricane Ike in 2008 Ohio sustained over $1.255 billion in insured losses.  These storm remnants can produce heavy rainfall, flooding, widespread windstorms with gusts to hurricane-force, and power outages.

Prepare your home or business for hurricane season:

  1. Complete a roof inspection: your roof is the first line of defense during heavy storms.  Shore up any loose shingles and make sure that gutters are free of debris to allow water to flow smoothly.
  2. Trim or remove damaged trees and limbs surrounding your home.
  3. Lock and secure windows, doors and other access points into your property, out buildings or sheds.
  4. Secure loose items on your property that could be picked up by strong winds and transformed into a projectile (such as trampolines, lawn furniture, grills, trash cans, etc.)
  5. Move your vehicles into shelters or garages, if possible, and avoid low lying areas that can flood and parking near trees.
  6. Consider purchasing a portable generator for use during power outages.
  7. Flashlights and extra batteries would also be useful.

These emergency situations call for immediate action. A prompt response helps to reduce the damage and the costs for mitigation and restoration.

SERVPRO in Canton Ohio will provide you with the most advanced technology and techniques.

At SERVPRO in Canton Ohio, we stay up-to-date and with most advanced technology and techniques. With these advancements, SERVPRO can restore your property swiftly, reliably, and more effectively to its preloss condition. You can count on a timely turnaround whether using SERVPRO for business or home needs in Canton Ohio. Practical standards for cleaning and restoration are put in place by The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC); The IICRC S500 Water Damage Guide even incorporates the field of psychometry into its specific set of practical standards.

Some of the equipment that helps SERVPRO adhere to the standards and stay true to the technological advancements are as follows:

Moisture Detection and Measurement

Specialized equipment detects, measures, and monitors a property’s moisture levels to fit certain scientific drying principles. Recent technology, like infrared cameras, helps us find water through a wall, ceiling, or floor.

  • For thorough water removal, an infrared camera may be used to identify water location.
  • To measure the extent of saturation, we use sensitive moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters.

Water Extraction

Powerful extraction equipment removes the majority of the water from your home or business which in turn accelerates the drying process.

  • For continuous draining of high-level water, we use submersible and gas-powered pumps.
  • For efficient water removal, we prefer truck-mounted and portable extraction units.

Drying

The remaining moisture from ceilings, walls, and floors of your home or business can be removed using industrial strength fans and dehumidifiers. Proper drying techniques help to avoid swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed fans quickly evaporate excess moisture
  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers extract water vapor from the air.

Odor Removal

With water and fire damage, often powerful odors follow. Our advanced machines eliminate airborne contaminants and control the air quality during the restoration and cleanup procedure.

  • Air scrubbers
  • Thermal foggers and deodorization cleaners

Sanitizing Agents, Germicides, and Antimicrobial Treatments

To fully clean and remove odors and/or contaminants on your property, OSHA-approved cleaning agents may be required.

  • Deodorization products control smells from an abundance of moisture.
  • Disinfectants ends bacteria, fungi, mildew, and other harmful microorganisms growth.
