Smoke Damage? No Problem!
Smoke damage is a tricky mister. It usually doesn't reside in one area of your home. When you have a fire smoke travels and most surfaces easily absorb the odors it leaves behind. It is our job to go in find the hidden odors and restore your home to preloss conditions. Successfully do this includes using both wet, and dry techniques to clean away soot, and smoke residues left behind. The hardest part of a fire restoration job is getting the smoke smell out of the home, and your belongings. We have special cleaning solutions that break down soot, detergents for smoke damaged clothe materials, deodorizers for most surfaces, and where it is really bad we use our Ozone machine which can beat almost any smell, and get air to where it should be again healthy breathable and fresh. No matter the situation we are here to help!
Tis' The Season of Storms
Storms are devastating, and storm season can be a very stressful time of year. It is important to be prepared. You may not think it is necessary, but even in Ohio we still experience, hind wind, lighting, and an abundance of rain. These things can cause damage. Excessive rain leads to unwanted water build up, flooding, and much more. Winds can knock down branches, and cause damage to your roof, windows etc. These storms lead to power outages that can last several days. Make sure you have plenty of water stored, and an alternative source of power if possible, and of course and abundance of flashlights, and candles. Being prepared and staying calm is key during this time of year. Just know we are always here to help!
Mold is Upon Us
The amount of mold estimates we have had come in this summer is at an all-time high. The excess heat and humidity on top of everyone running their AC units to stay cool, has made a perfect spawning environment for unwanted molds and mildews. We have helped people who have been in their homes for 20 plus years and have never experienced any issues. To lower the chance of your home harboring molds. You should watch for things like excess condensation on your windows and ceilings. Running a dehumidifier in high moisture areas can also reduce the risk of mold. Watch for abnormal musty odors because that can sometimes be a sign of mold somewhere in the area. If you are having an issue or just need someone to check. Give us a call. We are always here to help.
Moisture likes to hide. It hides in places like your ceilings, walls, and floors. Without the proper equipment to dry these areas, you can experience things like mold, rot, and discoloration. Luckily, here at SERVPRO Zanesville/Cambridge we have the equipment to get the job done. Our Injectidry Drying system allows our technicians to get in there, and make sure all those hiding spots are dried out properly. The technicians would poke holes into the hard to dry areas in unnoticeable spots. Places such as behind baseboards.This machine dries those areas by injecting air between stud cavities, or removing moist air with negative pressure. This will dry up unwanted moisture, and greatly reduce the chance of problems in the future due to the water build up you experienced. We are always here to help, and prepared to get the job done. Our techs will find the problem, and fix it.
We often hear of the house fires in our community and band together to help our neighbors in need, but most of us like to believe we will never be in their situation. Unfortunately, fire can happen to anyone. Even those who take extra precautions to avoid them. When you hear your smoke detector go off, or realize you have a fire. It is important not to panic. You need to exit the building as quickly as possible closing all doors, and windows on your way out if possible. Always, check for heat before opening any closed doors. You do this by placing the palm of your hand on the door. It is also very important to stay as low to the ground as you can, because smoke rises, and smoke inhalation can be fatal. After vacating the building immediately call 911 so they can send your local Fire Department. If you are unable to get out there are things you can do to spare time while waiting to be rescued. Stay low of course, and get a wet blanket if at all possible to put over you. This helps prevent smoke inhalation. Always stay in one spot in an open area if so the Fireman can find you. If you hear them calling for you make sure you make noise. If the smoke is not thick you can yell, but it is better to make other noises. You can bang on the wall, or floor, even blow a whistle if you have one. Try to wait by the nearest window, and leave all door ways clear. This is so the fireman get to you without anyone getting injured. After, the fire is over. it may seem like all is lost, but this is where SERVPRO can help. We specialize is fire restoration, and are trained to help you in your time of need.
Water in Your Basement?
A lot of homeowners choose to use their basements as extra living space. Often laying down carpet, putting up dry way and adding plumbing. Having the extra space is amazing, but there are some downfalls. basements often hold excess moisture. This is due to them being underground, and or the foundation shifting. A little bit of moisture can be controlled with dehumidifiers, and routine checks. This will usually keep moisture at a level that will not do much damage or allow mold growth. If you have a storm it is always a good idea to check and make sure excess water is not getting into your home, if it is make sure to contact a professional to try and resolve the situation. If damage occurs and your home does get wet, of course we can always help!
