Staying Safe Throughout Flood Damage Mitigation in West Lafayette

Having all four seasons in West Lafayette never prevents our area from surprising us with unseasonal weather. Hail is never uncommon, and neither are sudden rainstorms, even in the winter. Days with temperatures over freezing can cause isolated disasters after the skies pour too much rain onto our city.

When your neighborhood's drains cannot keep up with the amount of rain falling, your West Lafayette home could experience flood damage. SERVPRO's technicians can make things right again, “Like it never even happened,” so your family can move forward and forget about the disaster. We handle every step of mitigating the damage caused by invasive, filthy water, so you can relax and not worry about the possible dangers involved in working with contaminated objects.

We know how to not only make your home safe while we work by eliminating immediate dangers but also by wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). Because of the elevated humidity in the house that happens after flooding events, we wear respirator masks to reduce any health effects caused by airborne microbes. This is just as important as our gloves, boots, and protective suits.

As we steadily work toward eliminating the dangers in your home, we also engage in reducing the damage. We clean a significant number of belongings, so they do not become more damaged. We cut away soaked wallboard and set up air movers and desiccant machines. We also run several air scrubbers to rid your house of as many microbes as possible, significantly reducing the risk of mold growth and subsequent damage. When we finish with all of our work, your home should have new carpeting, freshly painted walls, and no trace of the last disaster.

SERVPRO of Lafayette works in Buck Creek, Ash Grove, and Battle Ground, always ready and able to help your family recover quickly after flood damage and other disasters.

Lafayette Companies Rely on SERVPRO After a Water Loss to Keep Their Doors Open for Business

Commercial Lafayette Companies Rely on SERVPRO After a Water Loss to Keep Their Doors Open for Business No Dirty Clothes When SERVPRO Responds Quickly to a Water Removal at a Lafayette Laundromat

Commercial Water Extraction Keeps the Dry Cleaners Open for Business in Lafayette

After a special event in Lafayette, having clothing cleaned at the dry cleaners requires special solvents and cleaning agents to remove soiling from clothing. Water rarely plays a role in such a business except to dilute various foaming agents and other chemicals when needed.
 
When a storm causes water to flow inside your Lafayette dry cleaning business or a pipe breaks in the washroom, you need to call a competent provider of commercial water extraction services. SERVPRO technicians specialize in working with area businesses, making sure that all of our B2B customers receive the attention needed to get their operations normalized quickly. Caring for the clothing of clients and returning them in a cleaned state is, of course, paramount to this enterprise. We do whatever we can to preserve fabrics from being ruined.
 
Our water extraction equipment pulls out all of the standing water and eliminates puddles that occur here and there. We use flexible tubes with our Injectidry machines to send warm, dry air into wall cavities, forcing more rapid evaporation and drying to occur. Small holes drilled into either end of wall spaces allows air to pass through these enclosed sections of your business. Behind temporarily removed baseboards is one location that we typically choose to reduce the need for minor repairs later.
 
Floors need aggressive drying techniques to keep them from suffering permanent damage, also. We implement similar machinery for this, except instead of tubing placed into the structure, we place it into mats that create heat while simultaneously pulling the evaporated moisture out from between the floor's pieces.
 
Throughout your business, your dry cleaning equipment needs expert attention, as well, to make sure rust never happens and that inside parts continue to work flawlessly for you and your employees. We can help dry off outer parts but prefer to have a specialized repair technician examine anything before anyone powers on these machines. The chance of electrical shocks causing someone harm or the machinery becoming even more damaged are both extremely high after an incident involving water.
 
Cleaning other surfaces can help make things safer for your staff and your customers. SERVPRO works hard to make our local businesses remain successful after disasters happen. One way we do this is through enrollment in our (ERP) Emergency READY Profile. This is a completely free service from SERVPRO and can help save your business from permanent closure by guiding your or your employees through those critical first few minutes after a disaster and notifying us of the event.
 
SERVPRO of Lafayette also provides commercial services to other businesses in Indian Village, Colburn, and Ash Grove. Call us at (765) 420-0077 to get immediate assistance with water extraction services when a disaster happens or for assistance in setting up your ERP Program. We are always here, 24/7, year-round, to take your call and answer your questions.

Storm Damage Indian Village Property Owners Know SERVPRO Mitigates Flood Damage with Rapid Humidity Action Specific Humidity Is a Key Component of Flood Damage Control and Mitigation in Indian Village -- SERVPRO

Using an LGR Dehumidifier After a Flood Loss in Indian Village

The weather is a very unpredictable force. It can bring heavy rain, storm, and tornadoes to your location without any warning. If you experience a significant flood in your area, then you know how devastating that it can be. Flood damage can be quite expensive because the water from the flood often come from the sewage system. This origination means that the water is contaminated by toxins, bacteria, feces, and other contaminants. With this in mind, it would be wise to get a water restoration specialist to restore your home.
 
Removing water and sanitizing your home after flood damage in Indian Village can require some advanced technology and equipment. The LGR dehumidifier is one of the best out there. It is a low grain refrigerant device that uses condensation through cold to remove water vapor. This enhancement can promote a more efficient drying system that can create a lower humidity environment, dropping the RH relative humidity along with the SH specific humidity.
 
The SERVPRO water restoration technician often utilizes the LGR to create an optimal drying time. The goal is to get as much moisture out of the air so it can reduce the drying procedure. Keep in mind that the faster you get water out of any home environment, the less damage that it can cause. This situation is why it is essential to get one of the best drying equipment out there. Since water from the flood contains many contaminants, it can travel to the moisture in the air and cause more pollution. There is a balancing act that requires monitoring of the drying process. Some materials like wood flooring can split if the moisture extraction is too abrupt. Once the restoration process is completed, the technicians can walk you through your home to ensure that you are happy with the results.

Give SERVPRO of Lafayette a call at (765) 420-0077, and we can promptly arrive and begin the water extraction and restoration service.

11/14/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Ice Dams Can Cause Damage To Your Dayton Home Ice damming is a situation that traps melting snow onto your roof, both increasing the size of the dam and giving water no runoff points.

Ice Damming Can Allow Flooding in Your Dayton Home

With winter coming quickly for the Dayton area, many homeowners look towards the season to bring heavy snowfall that sits atop their roof. While often this snow merely melts away without incident, certain circumstances can allow for substantial damage to your house if it does not get dealt with immediately. Ice damming is a situation that traps melting snow onto your roof, both increasing the size of the dam and giving water no runoff points.

When ice damming affects your Dayton home, the resulting trapped water looks for an outlet to penetrate into your house, often causing flood damages. Since the flooding occurs in the attic space of your house, many homeowners do not even know there is a concern until that water spreads through the floors below. Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly in the face of an emergency like this to help you mitigate your losses and get the restoration process started as promptly as possible.

From the moment that our dedicated professionals arrive at your address, we get to work on assessing the damage that the property has sustained.

After A Fire Contact Our Team To Remove Soot And Smoke Damage From Your Dayton Home

11/6/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage After A Fire Contact Our Team To Remove Soot And Smoke Damage From Your Dayton Home Unlike fire, smoke can travel almost anywhere in the home, depositing odorous soots and residues to surfaces on contact.

Removing Smoke And Soot After Fire Damage For Dayton Residents

In a kitchen fire, it is seldom the flames that do the most damage. Unlike fire, smoke can travel almost anywhere in the home, depositing odorous soots and residues to surfaces on contact. Generally, smoke travels upwards into any free air pockets which can make it challenging to find where an odor is coming from or removing soiling from tough to reach areas. By training technicians extensively in the behavior of smoke, we offer a comprehensive solution to small, medium and large house fires.

When it comes to fire damage in Dayton, homeowners can rely on us to provide prompt service. We live local to the area and operate a 24-hour call line. SERVPRO has access to national level resources, so we bring with us the very best training and expertise on every job that we do. We also promise our customers to arrive on site with four hours of receiving a notification of loss.

When materials combust, part of their essence is transported via smoke. Synthetic and natural materials have different compositions, so it makes sense that removal methods are also different. Wet smoke, is synthetic and can be spread around causing further damage using specific cleaning methods. Dry smoke, on the other hand, can be removed from fabrics using a dabbing technique that prevents residues becoming embedded.

So how does SERVPRO know which smoke is which? The answer is simple. We conduct a pre-test to determine what kinds of smoke we are dealing with and how best to treat them. For difficult to reach areas we use agile, extendable brushes to complete the job effectively. Our technicians are IIRC certified and more than happy to share their considerable knowledge with you after work is complete.

Take the stress out of home restoration by trusting SERVPRO of Lafayette. You can reach us anytime at (765) 420-0077 to book a service.
