Fire Damage to Your Floors? Here’s Why You Need to Call SERVPRO

12/24/2019 (Permalink)

Cleaning up after fire damage to a floor can be tricky, because different floors are made of different materials, and the clean up process can be different depending on the kind of floor you have.

If you need some information and advice to help you choose the right floor cleansers, calling SERVPRO of Eatonton/Long Branch is your best move. We have certified technicians who know how to clean soot and grime from smoke, and the mess left after using a fire extinguisher without disturbing the rest of your home. 

Preparation for Cleaning Your Floors After Fire Damage

While you may understandably feel a temptation to rush in and start cleaning up right away, it’s a good idea to take certain safety precautions before you start. 

Regardless what kind of floor you have, SERVPRO has the professional equipment needed to remove any debris.

Remove the Water and Begin the Cleaning Process

Once the fire department puts out your fire, there will not only be charred debris but also probably standing water left from the efforts to put out the flames. It’s important to not only remove any debris but all the excess water too.

Depending on the extent of the mess, you may need to go through the cleaning process multiple times if you did the work yourself. Calling SERVPRO will guarantee that the work will be done quickly and correctly.

How to Clean Different Types of Floors

Because each floor surface has different properties, leave the cleaning to professionals who know how to individually work with each one: 

  • Wood – soot can leave a residue on hardwood floors.  
  • Tile – glazed and sealed tiles are often resistant to soot stains. However, tiles with open pores will absorb stains easily. 
  • Vinyl – because vinyl is porous, it will absorb stains. Vinyl is also prone to melt or warp in the heat. For these reasons, it is likely you may have to replace any sections of the vinyl flooring that are severely damaged.

If you’re in need of professional cleaning and restoration services for fire damage to your home or business, our team of friendly experts here at SERVPRO Eatontown / Long Branch are available 24/7.

Why SERVPRO Can Help When Your Sump Pump Fails

11/1/2019 (Permalink)

About and inch of standing water in a basement A malfunctioning sump pump can inundate a basement with water quickly, leaving a messy clean-up.

If you’ve invested in a sump pump, congratulations! A sump pump is your extra layer of protection to keep your basement or crawlspace safe from flooding and water damage. But what happens if your sump pump fails?

Here are 5 common reasons why sump pumps fail and what you can do about it:

An Overworked Sump Pump

If there’s a problem with your switch, or excessive amounts of rain or water flow, there’s a possibility your sump pump could continuously run until it burns out. Typically, sump pumps should only run for under a minute at a time.

Check how frequently your sump pump is running. If major storms will be a common occurrence, you may want to consider installing a secondary pump which can work alongside your first pump and empty the water basin more quickly when there’s heavy waters.

A Clogged Sump Pump

The drain lines that feed into the basin of your sump pump often carry bits of dirt and debris that can build up over time and clog the pump. When this happens, the pump may turn on, but it won’t function properly. 

In order to keep your sump pump running smoothly, it’s a good idea to clean it out once a year. Make sure to use a wet/dry vacuum to remove both water and dirt from the bottom of the basin. 

Power Problems

Power problem are one of the most frequent causes of sump pump failures. If your sump pump runs on electricity, you’ll be in trouble if you lose power during a major storm. That’s why you want to make sure to have a battery backup.

Unfortunately, battery backups can be expensive. As an alternative, consider a manual pump or a water-powered pump as your backup in case of a power outage.

Lack of Maintenance

Admittedly, it’s not pleasant to have to clean a sump pump – they’re typically dirty, smelly, and can be difficult to reach in a tight crawlspace. However, a sump pump that isn’t cleaned and properly maintained will wear out faster.

It’s a good idea to test your sump pump at least once a month to make sure it’s working properly. Then, every 6 months you will want to unplug the unity, drain the basin, and clean it out. Once you reassemble the unit, don’t forget to test it with several bucketfuls of water.

 Older than 6 – 12 Years

Depending on how frequently your sump pump runs, it should last between 6 to 12 years.

If you know your pump is getting older or you’re unsure of its age, it’s a good idea to test and clean it more often. If you start to notice the onset of any problems, you should consider replacing the unit sooner than later to prevent a backup.

If your sump pump does fail, and you find yourself dealing with water damage, at least you can rest assured that SERVPRO of Eatontown/Long Branch is close by to help. Our team of expert technicians have all the tools and training needed to deal with any size disaster, and we offer 24/7 emergency service for when you need it.

Why SERVPRO Can Help if You’re Selling a Home with Mold

10/25/2019 (Permalink)

Mold growing on basement wall insulation Basements are the prime space in homes that are prone to mold growth.

If you’re thinking about selling your home, one issue you may have to deal with is the presence of mold Unfortunately, a mold problem can be quite common in homes where there are persistent sources of water and moisture – and a significant mold issue can make it difficult to sell your home with a good return on your investment. 

Here at SERVPRO of Eatontown / Long Branch, we know how difficult it can be to deal with mold. While a small mold problem – less than 10 sq. ft. – is something you may be able to clean on your own, mold can also easily get out of control, especially if it’s growing behind walls or above ceiling tiles, etc.

While dealing with a significant mold problem is never pleasant, the issue can be especially challenging if you want to now sell your home.

Don’t make the process of selling your home harder than it has to be! Here’s a simple 3-step process for dealing with a major mold issue before you put your house up for sale:

If you suspect a mold problem, get an inspection

There are common signs that indicate you may have a mold problem. If you notice any of the following, it’s a good idea to have your home professionally inspected so you know exactly the extent of the problem you may have:

  • Signs of visible mold on walls, ceilings, or floors
  • Stains or discoloration
  • Musty smells
  • Building materials that are deteriorating or “soft”
  • Sudden or persistent respiratory problems or allergic reactions

Make sure to disclose the mold problem

If you currently have or have recently had a mold problem, this information is something you must include in your disclosure agreement.

It’s a good idea to be as specific and detailed as possible about the extent of the mold problem and the steps you have taken or will take to solve it. Make sure to document the process and provide proof of work through reports, receipts, and paperwork.

Get the help of a trusted professional mold removal provider

When you’re going to be selling your home, you want to make sure you hire trained, licensed and/or certified professionals to remove the mold.

This is important, because an expert mold removal provider will not only have the advanced equipment and training needed to thoroughly clean and sanitize the affected area, they will also be equipped to address the water source that caused the mold problem in the first place.

Reputation matters, and you want to be able to show future buyers that your mold problem was fixed by a name they can trust.

Document all aspects of the mold remediation and removal process

When you’re planning to sell your home, it’s a good idea to save all the paperwork associated with any mold remediation services you get. This includes the initial estimate, work order, and any mold testing reports.

It’s also a good idea to document the process with before and after photos, including photos you take with your smartphone.

While this may seem overdone, it’s better to be more cautious than not. In the event that a future buyer files a legal claim against you, a court will be looking for these kinds of records in order to side in your favor.

5 Tips to Keep Your Energy Costs Down and Your Home Safe from Damage as Temperatures Rise

7/2/2019 (Permalink)

Summer is a great time for family activities around the house, but it can also be a time of skyrocketing energy costs and potential home & health hazard. 

Here at SERVPRO of Eatontown / Long Branch, we want to make sure everyone in this community stays safe and is able to enjoy the Summer while protecting your home and property values. As leading Cleanup & Restoration experts in this local area, we want to help you with this simple Summer checklist.

Here are 5 tips to keep your family protected and your home safe as the days get longer and temperatures continue to rise:

How to Keep A/C Costs Low

One of the best ways to keep your air conditioning costs down is to plan for regular maintenance. It’s a good idea to have a central HVAC unit serviced at least once a year, and make sure to replace or at least clean your filters before the new summer season gets into full swing.

Another useful tip is to not run your air conditioner on high when you’re not at home.  Set your thermostat a couple of degrees higher anytime you’ll be out for more than an hour.  You can set it back down once you return.

How to Grill Safely

Summertime grilling is a favorite way to spend quality time for families across the country.  Unfortunately, it is also a leading cause of fires and fire damage.

 Here are a few guidelines for safe grilling:

  • Make sure the grill is clean and in good working order before you use it.
  • Keep a bottle of water and a fire extinguisher on hand.
  • Place your grill at least 10 feet away from your house or any other flammable structure.

How to Prevent Water Damage

Warmer weather is also the season for sprinklers, hoses, and other outdoor water faucets.

You want to be diligent to make sure these water systems aren’t leaking, as leaks can lead to significant water damage. Look for signs of corrosion, wear and tear, or other damage to the various parts. Also, be on the lookout for any puddles or pools of water that may have formed across the water line.

How to Prevent Mold Growth

The potential for mold growth increases as the weather gets more humid.  Mold grows where there’s moisture, so be on the lookout for standing water or extensive condensation.

If you discover a small section of mold (less than 10 sq. ft.) it is probably safe to clean it yourself with a solution of one-part water to one-part bleach. If in doubt, however, you can always call for help from a professional service provider like SERVPRO.

Pay Attention to Your Attic and Basement

While you may now be spending more time outdoors, don’t forget to keep tabs on what’s going on inside your house as well, especially in the attic and basement.

If you notice signs of discoloration or deterioration, these may be signs of a water or mold problem.  Catching these problems early is the best way to keep costs down.

Maintenance and prevention are the best ways to prepare for a safe Summer.  If, however, a problem should arise, know that SERVPRO of Eatontown / Long Branch is always here to help with any clean-up or restoration project large or small.  We have the all the advanced training and equipment needed to deal with home damage of all kinds.

SERVPRO Knows How to Remove Mold

4/1/2019 (Permalink)

Mold is a problem that can affect every home, and may be present even before it becomes visible.

In order for mold to take hold, environment needs to be rich in food sources (like cardboard, wood, dust, paper, etc.), little air movement and humid and moist temperatures. Basements, garages and bathrooms are prime places mold growth can occur.

The issue is most people are completely unaware there could be mold hidden behind sheet rock or in their insulation. In many cases you can smell mold in the air long before you ever see signs of a mold problem. Many times your wall or floor may look dry on the surface, but moisture can be trapped underneath.

SERVPRO of Eatontown/Long Branch has technicians who are certified and trained in discovering hidden mold and removal.

Hidden mold is often discovered during a water loss restoration, when sheet rock or flooring is too wet to dry with our special equipment and must be removed. Once that is done, often mold will be visible growing on stud beams, inside the sheet rock or on insulation. Homeowners may not even know it’s a problem.

Thankfully, once discovered by our technicians, mold removal and cleaning is easy to accomplish. Again, SERVPRO has special equipment and procedures to remediate mold and make sure your home is safe, the dangerous mold is removed and your home is left “Like it never even happened.”

11/28/2018 (Permalink)

Burst frozen pipes can be any property owner’s worst winter nightmare.  Even a small amount of leaking water can cause significant water damage in just a short period of time.

We know that dealing with water damage requires immediate action in order to minimize the damage, so it’s best if you have a plan of action.  We’d like to share some water damage tips with you so that you can be prepared if you ever have to deal with burst frozen pipes.

Safety First

REMEMBER: your first priority is always safety first.

If it is safe to do so, try to determine the exact source of the water problem and cut off the water and electricity supply to that area. You want to minimize the damage as much as possible. 

If you find any carpeting, rugs, drywall, ceiling, or tile that is saturated, you need to call a professional restoration service provider as soon as you can.  

Remove What You Can

When you’re dealing with water damage, you need to remove items to a safe dry location.  However, it is an unfortunate reality that in this situation certain items may be beyond saving or easier to just replace rather than try to salvage. Here at SERVPRO, we always try to salvage as much as possible and can help you determine the best course of action.

If it is safe to remove potentially salvageable items from the affected area, be sure to take the right precautions.  Remember that your belongings will be much heavier if they’re soaked – you don’t want to attempt to lift something too heavy and injur yourself.

Dry

If you’re dealing with water damage, you want to dry out the area as thoroughly and as quickly as possible.  This is why water damage typically requires professional equipment and training.

Pro tip: although it may seem tempting, DO NOT use a household vacuum cleaner to clean-up water damage.  Any significant damage will require professional grade equipment to be both safe and effective.

SERVPRO of Eatontown / Long Branch has helped hundreds of both commercial and residential customers in Monmouth, Ocean, Middlesex and Mercer Counties. If you ever have burst frozen pipes, we’ll be there ASAP to minimize the water damage and get you back to normal soon.  We can even help work with your insurance company.

Why SERVPRO is a Trusted Leader in Fire Damage Restoration

11/12/2018 (Permalink)

We’re your local neighborhood experts in fire damage restoration. Our company is owned and operated by proud members of this community.  We’re also part of a nation-wide network of franchises with specialized Disaster Recovery Teams located strategically across the country to handle large-scale fire catastrophes.

We understand that dealing with fire damage is a stressful, high pressure situation, and it’s best if you have a guide for action.  We’d like to share with you this essential, step-by-step action plan – even if you don’t need it now, it’s always best to be prepared.

Wait Before You Re-Enter

Even if it seems safe again, you should wait until a fire professional gives you the go-ahead before you re-enter your building.

Your property may look okay from the outside, but it is possible the structure could be unstable, and the fire may not yet be completely smothered. In order to keep safe, it is always best to wait until the authorities determine the area is secure for re-entry.

Make Important Phone Calls

If fire has damaged your home or business, you will want to call close family and friends or business stakeholders to inform them about the situation.

You’ll also want to call your insurance company. They can help you arrange temporary shelter and walk you through next steps. Let them know you’ve enlisted the help of professional restoration services and any information you may have about your situation.

Remember to Get a Copy of the Fire Report

In the rush of things to do and calls to make, don’t forget to call the fire department to find out how you can obtain a copy of the fire report.

The fire report will not only provide official documentation regarding the fire event, it should also cover the condition of your property.

Make Sure Your Property is Secure

In order to prevent further accidents or theft, make sure your property is secured.

This could include boarding up windows or doors or making sure structural supports are added to your building. Your insurance provider may require this and will let you know what you need to have done.

Begin the Process to Replace Valuable Documents

You may have lost valuable documents in the fire, such as credit cards, your driver’s license, or other important identification papers.

Even if documents weren’t destroyed by the fire, they may have become lost or ruined in the confusion of the catastrophe.  Best to take stock now of what you might need replaced.  For example, if any of your credit cards are missing, you should cancel them now.

Start the Clean-Up Process

One reason why SERVPRO is such a trusted leader in the restoration industry is because of our dedication to responding immediately when you need restoration and clean-up help.  We’re known to be “faster to any size disaster.”

The truth is: the quicker the response time, the better when it comes to minimizing damage and keeping costs low.

The Importance of Indoor Air Quality in Your Home 

11/1/2018 (Permalink)

This summer at the Jersey Shore was one of the wettest, most humid summers in recent memory. We all had our air conditioners running 24/7 to keep the humidity at bay. Running into the fall season, it is important to remember that indoor air quality is important to our overall health and well-being.

We talk a lot about mold,but mold is not the only the only potential pollutant that may be damaging your indoor air quality.  Other sources of indoor air pollution include:

  • Asbestos
  • Smoke from cigarettes, chimneys, fireplaces, etc.
  • Construction Materials
  • Lead
  • Radon
  • Carbon Monoxide

How to Improve the Indoor Air Quality of Your Home

If you suspect your home may be contaminated by any indoor pollutants, there are three strategies you should follow to improve the indoor air quality of your home.

  1. Remove the Source of the Air Pollution

In many cases, you will want to hire a professional cleanup and restoration services provider such as SERVPRO of Eatontown/Long Branch to safely assess your particular situation and make sure the problem is thoroughly fixed as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

  1. Make Improvements to Your Ventilation System

Proper ventilation is necessary for good indoor air quality.

The EPA recommends increasing the amount of outdoor air coming indoors whether it’s through natural ventilation (such as opening windows and doors), mechanical ventilation (for example through a well-functioning HVAC system), or through infiltration (the process by which outdoor air enters your home through cracks and openings in the window casings, walls, floors, etc.).  

  1. Use an Air Cleaner

There are many air cleaners on the market today from small, inexpensive table units to extensive house-wide systems.

The effectiveness of your air cleaner will depend on how well it collects the pollutants from your indoor air and how much air it draws through its cleaning element.  You can learn more about air cleaners here: https://www.energy.gov/energysaver/weatherize/ventilation/whole-house-ventilation

If you’re concerned about mold or other potential pollutants in your home, you can trust SERVPRO of Eatontown / Long Branch. We are highly trained, certified remediation and restoration specialists who can quickly get your home back to normal. 

Sewage Back Ups Need Immediate Attention

10/26/2018 (Permalink)

Dealing with a water mishap is devastating enough, but dealing with a sewage backup is even worse. 

Sewage is considered blackwater, which is waste water contaminated with human waste, flood water, or water contaminated with chemicals.  Unlike clean water, which is floodwater that does not pose an immediate health threat, sewage leaves contaminants on every surface it touches.  This can lead to potential serious health risks.

Blackwater floods are the most dangerous and the most destructive, and must be cleaned and mitigated immediately. Because of the unsanitary conditions of the water, items such as carpets, upholstery and drywall are often unsalvageable. Contact with blackwater can cause illness in both humans and pets.

To keep safe, here’s a list of things you should NOT do:

  • DON’T attempt any cleaning measures if you have the slightest doubt about sanitation. Remember: safety first.
  • DON’T attempt to flush toilets or drain sinks and tubs. Wait for the professionals to inspect, sanitize, and restore your plumbing before you use your water system again.
  • DON’T use harsh chemical to try to unclog the drains. You don’t want to cause further damage to your pipes. This is why professionals have special training and cleaning solutions.
  • DON’T let children or pets near the affected areas until your house been thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and restored.

Calling SERVPRO of Eatontown/Long Branch is the best step you can take to make you’re your home or business is mitigated and restored correctly and safely. And because we are open 24/7, we can be at your door immediately, day or night. Our technicians are experienced and trained to know exactly how to handle any situation and will be able to get your home or business back to normal.
