Balch Springs Water Damage Removal Team Shares Tips on Where Water Damage Starts

2/17/2022 (Permalink)

Water Damage Spots Can Occur at Any Time Your Trusted Balch Springs Water Damage Removal Team is Here For Any Size Disaster.

There Are a Few Key Areas You Should Check for Damage in Your Balch Springs Home

Locating water damage and its sources is the first step in restoring your Balch Springs. Preferably, it would help if you had your home periodically inspected by professionals for water-related issues. However, there are some key places you can check on your own if you suspect a water problem.

When inspecting water damage spots in your Balch Springs home, SERVPRO technicians repeatedly find it in the same areas. They generally discover it near windows, in ceilings under leaky roofs, by pipe networks, around appliances, or beside water containers.

With all this in mind, some specific places you should check for water problems and associated damage are:

  • The caulking around your window frames, your windows’ glass seals, and the areas beside and under your windows
  • Attics, other spots directly under roofs, and places behind ceiling leaks or discolored structural elements
  • Under sinks and around known pipe networks, especially after hard freezes, where leaky or burst pipes may occur
  • or under washing machines, around the valves and gaskets of dishwashers, and near water heater tanks that haven’t been serviced in a while
  • Around old or corroded water containers that may have been neglected for some time

Should you locate a water leak and related damage, you will likely need professional water damage remediation to help you with water cleanup and water damage repairs.

With that said, it is comforting to know that the highly trained and well-equipped water damage experts at SERVPRO of Balch Springs are just a phone call away. Contact us at (469)-998-6445 for assistance whenever you need us.

Fire Damage Can Completely Ruin A Home We are your Balch Springs trusted fire damage repair team.

SERVPRO of Balch Springs Offers Prompt Fire Damage Restoration Services in Dallas

A fire can start in your home due to unattended space heaters, boilers, stoves, and electrical faults. SERVPRO's fire restorers can assess the destruction, including flame, smoke, soot, and water damage, and decide how to fix things. The intensity of the destruction usually depends on the severity and size of the fire. We examine a property to determine how far the flames, soot, water, and smoke penetrated the property.

Our SERVPRO restorers also examine the property's contents like furniture, carpets, and removable fixtures to determine what is salvageable. We can then provide complete fire or smoke damage clean up to get it back to livable, safe conditions. Cleaning up after a fire involves removing debris, smoke residues, and resolving water damage. It also involves removing and eradicating ruined contents and eliminating odors. 

The damage from the flames is what most people notice, but smoke can also cause destruction. Different kinds of smoke exist, including dry, wet, and fuel oil smoke. Wet smoke is the most challenging to remove. It covers surfaces in a thick coating and has a strong odor. Wet smoke comes from fires that burn at lower temperatures. On the other hand, dry smoke comes from fires that burn at higher temperatures and is easier to clean. It is not likely to find fuel oil smoke in a home unless an oil-burning furnace causes it. 

Smoke can cause significant destruction due to the corrosive effects and odor. It can begin the corrosion process a few minutes after falling on surfaces. It is a priority to clean it; otherwise, you may have to replace the affected surfaces. SERVPRO's emergency cleaning services may include:

  • Immediate cleaning of the rooms you need to use.
  • Deodorization of strong odors.
  • Containment, if only a part of the structure is damaged.
  • Water removal.

Some smoke residues are corrosive to surfaces. We can wipe residues from plastic surfaces, fiberglass surfaces, light-colored painted surfaces, and Formica countertops. Our SERVPRO team can also clean and protect metal surfaces that contain iron and chrome trim like door hardware, faucets, window frames, and lamps. Pre-cleaning the surfaces and coating them with lubricant can reduce further corrosion and protect them.

Bursts Pipes Are No Fun A Burst Pipe can cause commercial businesses to shut down the building. This is not good for business. We strive to open up as soon as we can.

Prompt Commercial Water Damage Restoration Helps Returning To Normal Business Hours

Water leaks in business premises like a retail store are always unpleasant to discover. If water damage occurs, you may have to close down the business for repairs. Your next decision determines how extensive the damage spreads.

You should contact SERVPRO restorers as soon as possible when you need commercial water damage repair in Balch Springs. Due to our expertise of water damage losses, we understand that its important to act fast. Quickly removing water from a building reduces exposure time. Removing water fast helps reduce the primary and secondary destruction that can occur. Through SERVPRO's water restoration process, you can return to business within a short time to avoid losing revenue.

SERVPRO uses advanced equipment, tools, and approved products for an efficient and fast mitigation process. We remove any extra damage that has already saturated the building materials during the drying process through evaporation and dehumidification. Our restorers can use two 20-inch reinforced duct lines with desiccant dehumidifiers to dry your property.

Dehumidifiers absorb moisture using chemicals called desiccants. The heat is transferred through one of the duct lines to the affected area through the desiccant. Following the heating of the affected area, another duct line removes moisture from the affected building. Our SERVPRO team prefers using desiccant dehumidifiers because:

  • The equipment produces the driest air with the least vapor.
  • It is advantageous for complicated assemblies comprised of different materials and voids.
  • It works well for dense and semi-porous materials such as concrete, large timbers, and hardwood flooring.

We also consider desiccant dehumidifiers ideal for large loss areas or commercial settings because they can create a substantial vapor pressure differential and quickly dry the property.

Be Cautious Around The "Clean" Source if Water Damage Occurs

2/15/2022 (Permalink)

Water Damage in Home A few do's and don'ts when it comes to dealing with water damage from a "clean" source.

Tips for when you have water flooding from a "clean source"?

Do:

  • Stop the water source if possible or contact a qualified party to stop the water source.
  • Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building, as long as the access to the power distribution panel is safe from electrical shock.
  • Remove as much excess water as possibly by mopping and blotting.
  • Absorb excess water from wood furniture after removing lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and lift up wet upholstery cushions to begin the drying process.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood block between furniture legs and wet carpeting. This helps with colors bleeding on carpet or other surfaces.
  • Move any paintings, art objects, computers, documents and other materials that are valuable or sensitive to moisture to a safe, dry area.
  • Use wooden clothespins to keep furniture skirting and window coverings off damp floors.
  • Hang furs and leather goods to dry separately at room temperature.

What should you NOT do when a water damage occurs?

Don't:

  • Enter rooms with standing water where electrical shock hazards may exist.
  • Enter affected areas if electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers or electrical equipment are exposed to water. Always avoid electrical shock hazards.
  • Leave books, newspapers, magazines or other colored items on wet carpets or floors to cause staining.
  • Leave Oriental rugs or other colored rugs on wet wall-to-wall carpets to cause staining.
  • Use your household vacuum cleaner to remove water, possible causing electrical shock or damage to the vacuum cleaner.
  • Use TV's or other appliances while standing on wet carpets or floors, especially not on wet concrete floors.
  • Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet or enter rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water.
