Home Upgrades after Fire Damage

4/4/2019 (Permalink)

When your home or business is impacted by fire damage, all you can think about is how to make that home or business back to "Like it never even happened." 

We have new solutions for you. We are talking about upgrades. We have a reconstruction division that specializes in getting your home or business the newest windows, flooring, and finishes for the best prices. 

There's a new type of windows to consider after dealing with a fire, smoke, or soot damage: double- hung windows. 

They are easy to clean on both the top and bottom and the sashes will open and tilt inside for even better cleaning. After a fire damage getting the smoke and soot off the windows is one of the first priority. With these new features --it makes it faster and easier to clean.

Another upside to these windows besides being efficient for cleaning is they are energy efficient, and the seals are less likely to break. Most of these types of windows even have a glazing, so it makes it harder to see inside of your home during the day and blocks heat from entering. 

Not only do these windows have several new features, but they can be done in just a few short hours, if they stay the same size. 

Another feature of our reconstruction division is you do not have to have damages to your home to get in touch with SERVPRO on upgrading your home. We can do upgrades and reconstruction without water or fire damage occurring. Call us today at 606-877-2160.

Why SERVPRO Ice Dams Turn Into Water Damage These pretty icicles turn into pretty ugly water damage!

During the winter time, there a variety of winter weather conditions that can alter your home or business. One type of damaging winter weather types is an ice dam. 

Ice dams are what happen when melted snow freezes at the bottom of your roof and melted water gets trapped by ice. The water damage occurs on your roof and finds it's way into your attic or other parts of your home. 

There are ways to prevent ice dams in your home, so that you do not have to call SERVPRO for water damage remediation:

  • make ceilings air tight so no warm air enters the attic,
  • replace old lighting with sealed fixtures,
  • boost ceiling/ roof insulation ,
  • insulate or seal attic access doors, and
  • fix cracks in your chimney flashing.

When removing ice and snow there are some tips to keep in mind. The last thing you want to do is damage your roof during the process of protecting your home. Here's what NOT to do:

1. Steer clear of removing ice with salt, chemicals or chippers. 

2. Do NOT install heating cable. 

3. Do NOT add roof vents that can compound the problem. 

Use these tips in your home or business to successfully avoid water or ice damage. We hope you do not have to deal with ice dams or water damage in your home, but sometimes nature causes damage no matter what we do.

If you do need water damage remediation --please do not hesitate to call us!

Classes of Water: How do they add up?

11/27/2018 (Permalink)

In water damage, there are a variety of factors that impact pricing, damage control, insurance, and other aspects. The classes of water can be broken up into four different categories. 

Class 1: 

This is when there is only a bit of water, absorption, and evaporation.  It means that a portion of a room or area is impacted. It can also refer to a larger area where the wet materials have absorbed moisture minimally. Little or no wet carpet or cushion is present in Class 1 Waters.

Class 2: 

This involves a large amount of water, absorption, and evaporation.  We use this classification when the entire room with carpet and pad is affected. There is moisture in structural materials and substructure soil.

Class 3: 

This type involves the greatest amount of water, absorption, and evaporation. Water in this class may have come from overhead. Ceilings, walls, insulation, carpet, cushion, and sub-floor in virtually the entire area are saturated.

Class 4: 

This kind relates to specialty drying situations, such as wet materials with low permanence or porosity. These types of losses may require longer drying times and specialty drying methods.

If you have water damage, whichever the class may be, call SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties today!
