SERVPRO Deeply Evaluates Fire Loss Incidents to Determine the Best Course of Action

Fire damage rarely affects one section or material type in a house. Therefore, the scope of the fire and smoke restoration is usually wide. It takes sufficient resources, including skills and equipment, to restore a property to its preloss state.

Evaluating the situation before beginning fire and smoke restoration in Hamilton Township properties is essential in ensuring the right outcome. Evaluation helps determine whether the task mostly involves cleaning surfaces, contents, or both. It also establishes the level of damage on materials determining whether there are any unsalvageable materials. SERVPRO also uses the Evaluation to gather essential information for site services setup.

Site service setup involves availing supplemental resources like:

  • Portable storage units
  • Dumpsters
  • Generators
  • Portable toilets

Most supplemental resources are essential only when there is significant fire damage. However, they are crucial in facilitating favorable results. For instance, generators can help when power is cut off from the property or electrical systems deemed hazardous. The generators can power different cleaning and drying equipment safely. Portable storage units, on the other hand, simplify content movement since it is possible to remove them from the house without the hassle of relocating them from the premises.

On finishing evaluation and site services setup, the focus should shift to restoration. Cleaning is one of the dominant renovation tasks. Combining different cleaning techniques is essential. Also, starting with methods that do not cause additional problems is essential. Our SERVPRO technicians can use a dry cleaning method such as vacuuming to remove residues where possible or chemical sponges since they do not leave smudges.

What Is the Best Water Extraction Solution in Hamilton Township Homes?

11/30/2021 (Permalink)

Water damage restoration is no DIY project. Call SERVPRO and have their water damage mitigation team handle all the work for you.

SERVPRO Combines Different Approaches for Faster Turnaround or Better Outcomes

Whether it is a damaged roof or pipe that releases water into your Hamilton Township house, you need to take action to limit the impact. Extracting the water in good time can forestall many problems that follow such incidents, including bad odors, stains, and mold.

Water extraction from Hamilton homes can be a relatively simple exercise of scooping water from surfaces or a complex operation requiring demolition in sections of the structure. Having the right equipment is essential for all types of removal, which is why SERVPRO invests heavily in different extraction technologies.

The most commonly used tools for water extraction from homes include:

  • Portable extractors
  • Truck-mounted extractors
  • Submersible pumps
  • Trash pumps

These machines help remove water while it is still in liquid form—the amount and condition of the water influence the choice of equipment. For example, our SERVPRO technicians use truck-mounted and submersible pumps when significant amounts of water are involved. Trash pumps, on the other hand, are necessary when the water involves debris and thus may damage regular pumping equipment.

In most cases, the leaking water soaks into various structural materials and contents such as carpets and upholstery. Some water may also find a way into concealed spaces where conventional equipment cannot reach. Removing the trapped water requires unique approaches and equipment.

Some commonly used procedures include:

  • Carpet and pad removal for off-site drying
  • Punching vent holes in walls or ceilings to release trapped water
  • Evaporation and dehumidification

Each of these procedures requires the right equipment. Otherwise, it is possible to cause unnecessary structural damage. A seemingly light task like carpet removal requires several tools, including seam rollers, knee kickers, and staple hammers, among others. SERVPRO invests in a wide assortment of equipment, thus resolving each case satisfactorily.

SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton provides water extraction solutions that deal with any intrusion, "Like it never even happened." Call us at (609) 965-0885.

When fire damage strikes your commercial building, SERVPRO IICRC certified techs have you covered from start to finish.

Superior Project Supervision From SERVPRO Improves the Fire Damage Restoration Experience

Fire damage is disruptive and costly to fix. It might affect vast sections of your business facility, ruin expensive equipment, or even harm input materials that you have taken long to find. Fire damage restoration takes several processes and thus requires the right level of oversight to guarantee the right outcome.

Involving a professional during fire damage restoration of your Atlantic City business premises is essential since it improves results in most cases. Although professionals are mostly consulted because of their excellent skills and sophisticated restoration equipment, you can enjoy other benefits from such a choice. For instance, SERVPRO helps ensure better supervision of the entire restoration process.

In case you are wondering, supervision affects many factors, including:

  • The time renovation processes take to complete
  • How orderly things such as cleaning run
  • Safety and efficiency levels

Fire restoration takes cleanup of various sections like walls, ceilings, floors, and fixtures. Material teardown and removal may also be necessary. Understanding the order in which to perform these tasks eases the process. For SERVPRO teams, the crew chiefs are responsible for establishing order and assigning different tasks to different technicians. With such an established pecking order, delays and conflicts are avoided.

A typical restoration process may follow this procedure:

  • Content pack-out
  • Demolition
  • Structural cleaning
  • Content cleaning

When properly supervised, professional teams can handle tasks simultaneously. For instance, our SERVPRO crews can pack out contents while simultaneously setting up work areas such as staging areas and establishing off-limit sections. 

SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton helps with the complex and simple aspects of fire damage restoration, helping you resume your regular business operations faster. Call us t at (609) 965-0885. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

What Actions Mitigate Flood Damage in Atlantic City Residences?

10/15/2021 (Permalink)

Flood and storm damage restoration is a job for SERVPRO. We will be on-site within 4 hours of the initial call.

Flooding can be a devastating force, requiring multiple emergency services to protect Atlantic City properties. 

Mitigating flood damage is critical to area homes and businesses, as this ultimately reduces the money spent for restoration and the time these actions take. Specific emergency services can significantly impact the post-flooding condition and keep contents from becoming irreparably harmed.

Water Removal Services Expose Hazards

As with nearly all residential or commercial flood damage in Atlantic City, initial actions to reduce the severity and impact of pooling water require extraction. We use the initial job scoping to determine the best water removal tools to complete the tasks, namely, the ones capable of handling several inches of standing water with solids present.

Bulk Material Removal and Muck-Out Cleaning

Flooding can be destructive to the structural integrity of exposed areas of a house, leading to the collapse of materials like drywall and ceiling systems. Muck-out cleaning can remove these bulk materials and debris to make the final stages of restoration more efficient and thorough.

Content Relocation and Cleaning

Relocating contents and belongings from damaged areas can be a vital initial step in preventing greater harm and the spread of hazardous flooding effects. We have experienced technicians available at our nearby SERVPRO facility for focused deodorization, drying, surface cleaning, and storage when on-site cleaning is not feasible.

Flooding can be one of the most challenging disasters to overcome, especially when homes get struck with little warning. As leading restoration professionals, we can help customers navigate this stressful time to make smart decisions in restoring and protecting their property. Our SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton team is standing by 24/7 at (609) 965-0885.

Is Professional Water Cleanup Necessary for Atlantic City Properties?

10/7/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO techs use the latest technology and equipment for every water damage restoration service. Call now!

There are multiple advantages to choosing professional water restoration for Atlantic City residences.

It is not uncommon for property owners to want to clean up water damage on their own, but this is not always advisable. In many situations, the migration of water damage can pose substantial threats to the property when occupants lack the sophisticated equipment and training to overcome moisture pockets that deteriorate building materials or facilitate mold growth. 

A Fast Response Amid the Crisis

One of the distinct advantages of professional water restoration companies in Atlantic City properties is the fast response to developing emergencies. With situations like appliance failures or burst pipes, damage effects can quickly get out of control. Our SERVPRO professionals have 24/7 availability to provide efficient mitigation and restoration solutions necessary. 

Content Preservation and Cleaning

Protecting what matters most amid water damage situations can also be a reason to choose professional restoration options. Our SERVPRO team prioritizes the cleaning and safe storage of your personal belongings and contents to prevent unnecessary irreparable harm. When restoration is complete, these items can be returned to their original places. 

Thorough Drying and Monitoring Processes

Clearing out the moisture from exposed materials and contents requires multiple drying tools and products to promote evaporation. An advantage of professional water clean-up is monitoring the removal of moisture and damp pockets to ensure that these issues do not persist. Monitoring the removal of hidden water caches prevents secondary effects like mold growth. Some tools for this include:

Water restoration requires skilled professionals working quickly to resolve active threats before the situation worsens. With how fast water damage effects can spread through a residence or office, our SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton team is a trusted name to mitigate loss. We are available 24/7 at (609) 965-0885.

Cleaning Up After High-Heat Fires in Hamilton Township Homes

9/28/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians are trained in all phases of fire damage restoration. Call now for the help you need.

Dry smoke damage after Hamilton Township structure fires requires specific cleaning practices. 

Every fire damage situation is different, so choosing the best cleaning approach and restoration solution varies as well—job scoping and damage assessment help to select the ideal mitigation solutions for soot removal and odor management. 

Clearing Debris and Bulk Materials 

Before fire restoration in Hamilton Township homes can be fully effective, initial cleaning actions are necessary for the mitigation stage. High-heat structure fires tear through building materials and leave ash, charred remnants, and blistered surfaces in their path. Fire debris removal can reduce the concentrations of soot and smoke odors that must get overcome during recovery. 

Dry Cleaning Practices for Smoke Residues

There are multiple methods to clear chalky, thin soils and sediment from combustion on surfaces and contents without wet cleaning products. The first is the use of chemical sponges whose rubbery consistency can quickly collect soot particles and wipe them away. Secondly, dry vacuuming with HEPA products filter out contaminants and aerosolized particles to prevent a reduction in indoor air quality (IAQ.)

Wet Cleaning Options for Damage

Wet cleaning can also be possible when the chemical sponges and vacuuming do not complete the soot and soil removal. The final wipe cleaning for these exposed surfaces often combines several products to reach the desired result. Because soot compositions vary considerably based on the materials burned to create them, testing and evaluating wet cleaning approaches prevent choosing a damaging restoration approach that counteracts recovery goals. Some of the products used include:

  • Detergents
  • Odor counteractants
  • Wood créme pastes

After a fire, cleaning and restoring a home or business can involve many actions beginning as soon as competent professionals arrive. Our SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton team is ready to assist 24/7 at(609) 965-0885 with experienced fire restoration professionals and odor control technicians.

Not every Hamilton Township homeowner will know that black mold is never something they should disrupt or try to clean independently.
