Cleaning and Restoration of A Fire-Damaged Home in Raleigh is Often Less Expensive than Replacing the Contents

Property owners often need assistance in determining how likely restoration efforts might provide suitable results, making items usable again after a disaster occurs to a home in Raleigh. Replacing belongings is only one option. However, it may cost homeowners more and create additional confusion and hardship than other available possibilities.

The type of disaster influences the overall costs involved in restoring your family's belongings, as well as the amount of damage inflicted inside a house. The team from SERVPRO uses their comprehensive training in smoke and fire damage cleanup to help Raleigh homeowners put such a horrific situation behind them. Although the process might seem complicated because of the varied approaches we use, we follow specific protocols to create a uniform, organized environment. This makes our cleaning methods even more efficient.

The way SERVPRO organizes a family’s belongings after a fire helps minimize the number of things they must replace. Because some items need extensive restorative work carried out at our facility, determining this can shave weeks off the final date. We package these items in boxes. We wrap them securely, creating an inventory sheet as we work. We also take items that require cleaning with ultrasonic technology to our facility, also. Other items that we can clean and restore on-site go through a categorization process.
•    Heavily soiled, non-porous items,
•    Fabrics and other textiles that might need laundering after vacuuming, and
•    Personal items your family needs as soon as possible.

Your previously tidy Holly Springs, NC home, most likely gave you and your family members a horrible shock after a fire. Still, SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex knows how to erase the ugly effects of smoke and destruction and save you money in the process.

Where Can Property Owners Get Help After Water Damage Occurs?

Water on hardwood flooring. Water damage in your Raleigh residence? Call SERVPRO now.

To Get their Raleigh Property to its Pre-loss State, Homeowners Should Hire Water Restoration Companies Such as SERVPRO.

A water intrusion incident in your Raleigh residence can have lasting effects if the restoration process takes longer to begin. Odors may linger in the property, and wooden surfaces may start to rot. Getting your property back in order can be daunting, but professional restorers can help with the recovery process.

How long do I have before additional damage occurs?

When water seeps into your property, damage begins to occur in less than 24 hours. Acting fast by hiring restorers from SERVPRO, which is among the leading water restoration companies in Raleigh, can help save as much property as possible. The sooner we begin the restoration process, the better. We use approved techniques and innovative equipment and tools for effective restoration. Our team of restorers has decades of experience in handling water damage.

Do I have to leave the house during restoration?

That depends on the severity of the water damage. If water flooded many rooms in your property, you could leave for a day or two. Also, our equipment can be noisy and create a lot of air movement making the property unlivable. Suppose the damage extends to your kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom. In that case, you can consult your insurance company to see if it can meet the cost of alternate accommodation until your property is restored fully. However, if the damage did not cover a big area, you do not have to vacate your residence.

What are the effects of water on a wooden floor? 

    • Warping and buckling: When wood absorbs water, it expands. The boards can wrap and buckle at the joints due to expansion. The longer the wood absorbs water, the more it buckles. 
    • Cupping and crowning: Cupping occurs when wood absorbs water from the bottom and sides, causing the edges to rise slightly. While crowning happens when the top of the wood holds more moisture than the sides.
    • Wood rot: This occurs when wood stays submerged in water for an extended period. 

Can you dry the affected carpet and pad?

SERVPRO technicians can remove water from your carpet using deep extraction tools. The period it takes to dry a carpet and pad depends on various factors, including:

  • The pad’s weight
  • Overall pad thickness
  • The pad’s density

We can use thermal imaging cameras to determine how far the water traveled. If water has seeped under the padding, we can use a knee kicker, seaming iron, power stretcher, carpet shears, and latex adhesive to remove your carpet and pad without damaging them. We can then use air moving and dehumidification equipment to dry the area. 

Experienced professionals can handle water damage restoration best. Contact SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex at (919) 615-1160 for effective restoration. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.   

How Does Water Get Removed from Hidden Cavities in a Residence?

10/8/2020 (Permalink)

Thermal imaging equipment SERVPRO has the experienced technicians with the equipment and expertise your home needs after a water catastrophe. Give us a call right away.

SERVPRO Uses a Variety of Techniques to Detect Moisture and Dry Homes in Raleigh.

Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina and a college town. It can trace its history back to pre-Revolutionary War days. Raleigh was one of the very first planned cities in the U.S. Today, it is where a diverse group of people live, many of whom own homes. A lot of planning goes on in the city today, but one thing you cannot plan is water damage. When appliances malfunction or supply lines in the home burst, hundreds to thousands of gallons of water can pour into a home. This water can travel into wall cavities, down stairwells, and through ceilings into lower levels. 

Why are Water Location and Moisture Levels Important?

Seemingly small problems such as leaking pipes under the sink can quickly become large problems if the homeowner is away or sleeping when it happens. Where water removal in your Raleigh home takes place can depend on the water movement direction. If it ends up behind walls or other hidden cavities, you can end up with more damage in those places than to the original location of the water intrusion. SERVPRO technicians use advanced equipment to locate water and identify moisture levels to ensure proper drying.  Water can become trapped in many places in residential properties, including:

  • Behind walls
  • Cabinets
  • Under floors
  • Ceilings
  • Crawl spaces

What Equipment is Used to Detect Moisture?

Our technicians use several methods when looking for water damage. They do not depend on just one technique. Our crews employ all available resources to make sure the job gets done thoroughly and professionally. One of the tools they use is moisture meters. There are different types, including penetrating and non-penetrating models. We have meters that are precisely calibrated to detect the moisture content of specific types of material. 

Moisture sensors are another type of device that gets used. These are often used to probe carpet and padding. The moisture sensors help technicians to discover where the saturation levels are and where the water has migrated to in terms of depth. They can provide input into whether the subflooring is damaged. 

Thermal imaging cameras, or infrared cameras as they are often called, are convenient for finding hidden moisture. They are portable detection devices that help evaluate moisture levels in building materials. They can also be used to check levels as the drying process is taking place. 

What Role Does Controlled Demolition Play?

When water ends up in places like behind a cabinet, letting it dry on its own is not a wise idea. Moisture damages building materials progressively. Secondary damage such as mold can occur in as little as twenty-four hours. Water extraction is key to efficient structural drying, but the techs need to access the areas. Controlled demolition involves removing or modifications to the impacted material, such as drywall, permitting that access. Several methods used to release water and allow the warm, dry air to flow into the cavities are:

  •   Flood cuts – cutting and removing a portion of drywall. The cuts get made two to three feet above the water level. Drywall and insulation are removed and replaced in those spaces.
  •   Weep holes – punched into bulging walls and ceilings allows trapped water to be released before they collapse.
  •   Removing toe kicks – Built-in cabinets have toe kicks, which can be removed to allow access to the space behind the cabinet.
  •   Baseboard or beadboard drilling – This allows water pooled at the base of the wall to drain. 
  •   Injecti-dry equipment – uses positive or negative airflow into the void for better drying. Often we place tubes inside the baseboard weep holes to force in warm air for positive air pressure or suction out residual water using negative air pressure.

SERVPRO technicians are trained and experienced in making the proper cutaways and drill holes in drywall, ceiling tiles, painted or wallpapered walls, and mortar joints. When done correctly, these tactics allow for minimal damage, complete water removal, and optimal drying of the structure. 

Professional Water Removal Prevents Damage

With water intrusions, it is best to let professionals assess the situation. Just because you cannot see a problem does not mean it does not exist when it comes to moisture and where it can migrate. When SERVPRO mitigates water damage by providing expert water removal and drying procedures, it saves the homeowner time and money. Restoration rather than replacement, when possible, saves money. Fast mitigation means less damage to the home and content, saving you both. 

We are water removal experts and can have your home restored to preloss condition before you know it, if at all possible. Do not risk costly repairs due to hidden water damage. Contact SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex at (919) 615-1160 for quality water removal service. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Why Does My Business Premises Smell Musty?

9/14/2020 (Permalink)

containment area with a yellow sign for mold remediation SERVPRO's Professional Mold Containment Is a Crucial Factor in Remediation and Removal for Raleigh Area Commercial Sites

Musty Odors Are a Symptom of Mold Infestation. SERVPRO is a Commercial Mold Remediation Company for Raleigh Businesses.

Are my staff and clients safe in premises with mold?

Microbial organisms can have health effects on members of your Raleigh staff or clients. However, health issues associated with mold are usually minor. What can be concerning is the type of working environment you are providing. Mold can make a work environment unsanitary. Using a professional remediator to solve microbial growth issues in your business is the best long-term solution. Qualified technicians can act quickly to inhibit mold growth, remove infested materials, and try to prevent microbial problems from returning. SERVPRO works with commercial clients regularly and can arrive on-site in as little as four hours from receiving notification of loss.

What are the initial stages of mold remediation?

  • Providing a safe working space for technicians and reduce the chances of disturbing molds, including isolation barriers
  • Document and record the conditions within your workplace as well as the extent of the infestation
  • Contain the source of the issue to prevent further infestation

Are long-term mold issues harder to restore?

When a problem grows to a specific size and requires commercial mold remediation in your Raleigh business, we may have to replace the affected materials altogether. Physically removing mold-infested materials can cause spores to become airborne. To ensure that your business remains free from further infestation, our technicians can apply negative air-pressure when physically removing damaged materials. These air scrubber machines help to capture any spores that may become airborne when physically removing materials like drywall. Outfitted with HEPA and charcoal filters, indoor air quality can be significantly improved.

What are the late stages of mold remediation

  • Removing contamination from your business, including more extensive materials
  • Protecting surfaces using anti-microbial chemicals
  • Correcting the initial issue that causes mold growth (usually a moisture problem)

If a microbial growth issue affects staff and customers in your business premises, contact SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex at (919) 615-1160.

Does a Pipe Leak in My Home Cause That Much Damage?

9/13/2020 (Permalink)

white pipe spewing water from broken spot Bursting pipes in your home can cause a lot more damage than you think. Contact SERVPRO 24/7 for professional remediation services.

Pipes Breaking or Defective Home Appliances in Your Raleigh Home Can Cause Extensive Damage

Believe it or not, a pipe bursting, or a water line from a toilet breaks, your Raleigh home can become flooded quickly if unnoticed. A broken water pipe can leak out up to 160 gallons or more per hour. Pipes can freeze and burst, break from age, or appliances may falter, causing excessive water in your home, potentially causing a great deal of damage.

Does the Source of the Water Matter?

Water Sources Are Critical in Determining Contamination Levels in Your Raleigh Home

Technicians determine water removal procedures for your Raleigh home based on several factors, including the water contamination levels. Contaminated water creates a set of unique challenges and can cause dangers to human and pet health. Water that comes from an unflushed toilet needs to be removed with the appropriate protective gear, while clear water coming from a dishwasher may not require the same amount of care.

What are the Different Categories of Water?

Clean Water (Category 1): Treated, non-contaminated water may have come from a broken appliance or overflowing bathtub or sink. The easiest way to think of category 1 water is that it is unused and does not cause potential harm to other humans.

Gray Water (Category 2): Used water with waste products but does not have human waste. An overflowing toilet without solid waste is considered gray water. 

Black Water (Category 3) Water containing human waste or water that has moved across the soil, such as floodwater. Blackwater is not necessarily black but considered contaminated.

How is the Cleanup Handled Differently for Each Category?

Category 1: Standard removal with extraction equipment, carpets and pads typically do not require replacement.

Category 2: Since it does not usually carry the threat of disease, however, technicians use PPE (personal protective equipment) and place emphasis on antimicrobial cleaning. Carpets and pads must be thoroughly cleaned.

Category 3: Technicians wear full PPE gear and often require that residents and pets vacate the home throughout the cleaning procedures. Carpets need replacement.

For 24/7 assistance with water removal, contact SERVPRO of Cary / Morrisville / Apex at (919) 615-1160.

Can One Company Repair Roof Damage and Attic Flooding in Raleigh Homes?

9/1/2020 (Permalink)

lightning and heavy rain on dark blue background When storms come, often damage follows. We can help! SERVPRO has the manpower and equipment to restore your home.

With In-House Contractors and Knowledgeable Restoration Professionals, our SERVPRO Team can be a One-Stop-Shop for Flood repairs and Drying  

With torrential storms like Hurricane Florence that impacted the Raleigh area in recent years, homeowners were awakened to how unprepared many structures were for torrential rains, damaging winds, and other compromising conditions. Roof damages were among the most commonly experienced structural condition, but these situations were rarely only superficial. Once vulnerabilities exist with your roof during a severe weather event, the property becomes susceptible to disasters like flooding. Because this same destructive storm loss level is possible every spring and summer from the coast, our SERVPRO team must stay prepared to respond with efficient mitigation and repairs.  

Flood damage in Raleigh homes and businesses is rarely as simple as it sounds. Especially in situations where a damaged roof allows for water penetration, flooding in your home's attic space can be challenging to track and restore. Because the property remains vulnerable to continued flood damage and other threats when the roof damages are not resolved, these temporary construction solutions must occur before any mitigation in the house's attic.  

How Bad is the Roof Damage?  

As tempting as it might seem to assess your property's damage exclusively, this might not always be the best option. Many homeowners do not recognize smaller concerns that might develop into more significant threats. A combination of several strategies is often advisable, including looking over the property before calling experienced building trade professionals. Because your home already requires flood restoration, you can save time and money by making our SERVPRO team your one-stop-shop for recovery and reconstruction after storm and flood losses. Our competent contractors can help with a property inspection that identifies roof vulnerabilities that can allow water penetration into your attic. The various potential methods you can use to identify roof damage includes:  

  • Visual Inspection – It is possible to identify noticeable damage from a safe vantage point. However, it is not recommended to get on your roof if you believe any portion to be compromised. Your weight could cause the roof to collapse.  
  • Professional Evaluation – Professionals like our general contractors have inspection methods to conduct a thorough evaluation of roof damages without making the present loss worse.  
  • Flood Damage – There are instances where roof damage can be assumed by the presence of water in the attic or the lower living spaces of your home.  

Can Emergency Services Help Reduce Costly Flood Damage?  

Because contractors get dispatched along with our SERVPRO restoration technicians, we can offer several immediate actions to resolve the property's water penetration in Raleigh. Temporary construction solutions can often be among the most significant of these offerings, as flood restorers cannot begin mitigation efforts like water removal, drying, and cleaning without first stopping the flow of water into the structure from the penetration points. Some of the immediate actions that the combined roster of restoration technicians and experienced general contractors can implement include: 

  • Roof Tarping
  • Board Up
  • Content Relocation 
  • Extraction 

What Tools Remove Floodwater from the Attic?  

Flooding in the attic space can be destructive to the entire house, especially when the flooring is unfinished and even more susceptible to water penetration. Leaks and free-flowing runoff from the damaged roof can pass quickly through materials like insulation and ceiling drywall to impact the lower living levels where your family is. Water can pool in the attic space in more damaging situations and penetrate more slowly through hardwood flooring to the living space. Removing standing water and trapped moisture in wood and structural cavities involves a combination of several tools, including: 

  • Wet Vacuums 
  • Submersible Pumps
  • Weighted Extractors 
  • Positive Pressure Systems  

Can SERVPRO Repair the Damaged Attic?  

More than the roof's damaged portions must be removed and replaced with substantial water damage to the attic space. Because we have experienced building trade professionals performing build-back and reconstruction for the house, these same professionals can replace discarded or overly damaged materials like wood framing, underlayment, and insulation when these repairs and renovations are necessary after flooding. 

As quickly as flooding situations can develop for both your roof and the attic space after a severe weather event, it is critical to know how to identify the damage and restore it as soon as possible. Our SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex professionals can help with a fast and reliable response after storm losses. Contact us anytime at (919) 615-1160.

This not only helps preserve your belongings but also helps you to save money on your restoration project. We take the time to carefully pre-test all of your contents so we can determine what gets restored and what calls for disposal. 

Some of the methods that we use for content cleaning and restoration include:

  • Wet Cleaning – helpful for handling residue from moderate to heavy
  • Dry Cleaning – suitable for light residue and pre-cleaning
  • Spray and Wipe Cleaning – best for items that can’t handle rigorous cleaning measures
  • Foam Cleaning – best used on fabrics and upholstery that could be prone to bleeding or shrinkage with traditional cleaning measures
  • Abrasive Cleaning – works by way of agitation
  • Immersion Cleaning – involves dipping items in a bath where a cleaning product and tiny bubbles work in unison

What is Pack-Out?

There are some instances when packing up your interior within the area of the flood damage is best. We carefully organize and log all items being packed up and moved to another location for safe storage or off-site Cleaning. This allows us to speed up the project, protect your possessions, and allow for more on-site room for our crew to work.

Is Professional Restoration Necessary for All Disasters In Raleigh?

8/7/2020 (Permalink)

home interior Disasters can strike quickly, but our SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex team can respond fast to help

Hazardous Conditions Can Develop Rapidly After A Disaster In Raleigh

Hazardous conditions can develop rapidly after disasters strike Raleigh homes, making it wise to trust the experience and cutting-edge equipment of professional restorers.

From Cary to Raleigh, we have helped many of our friends and neighbors through the challenging experiences the disasters like fire and water losses can present. Even homes and businesses damaged by hurricanes over the past decade have benefited from the prompt response and expertise of our SERVPRO team. With a full-service general contracting division of our roster, we can offer a comprehensive solution for restoration and recovery, beginning with emergency services and repairs through mitigation and build back. Our commitment to our customers has helped to elevate our reputation in the area to be considered among the top franchises in the country, along with many of our sister franchises within our large loss recovery network.

Water

One of the primary callouts that our team receives throughout the year our water loss incidents. The frequency that these situations occur in Raleigh and surrounding areas has encouraged our professionals to leave trailers and production vehicles stocked with our recovery tools to provide a fast rollout when disasters strike. This preparedness ensures that we reach your home within hours of the first notice of loss in most situations so that mitigation Efforts can begin as soon as possible.

Protecting Your Belongings After a Water Loss

Your personal belongings often suffer the worst from water loss incidents because you cannot remove these items from the damaged areas quickly enough during an emergency. Part of the mitigation and emergency services that our SERVPRO team provides Raleigh homes and businesses focuses on protecting your personal belongings, possessions, and other vital items that could be in the path of migrating loss effects. We have multiple solutions for preserving these belongings. In some situations, relocation on-site can be sufficient, while in others, we must remove the items altogether and provide focused cleaning and restoration at our facility.

Extraction and Drying Solutions

The management of standing water and the drying of your Raleigh home is critical in returning the property to its preloss condition. Drying is ineffective until standing water and surface moisture concerns have been appropriately addressed with extraction tools. While air movers and dehumidifiers can be capable for evaporative drying solutions, water removal must first take place with numerous pieces of equipment in our inventory, including:

    •    Submersible Pumps
    •    Wet Vacuums
    •    Carpet Wands
    •    Light Wands
    •    Floor Mat Drying Systems

Fire

Fires are among the few emergencies where most homeowners understand that cleaning and restoration should get completed by competent and qualified restoration professionals. This is accentuated by the insurance provider's demands, given that many fire loss incidents get covered by Raleigh homeowners' insurance policies. As a preferred vendor for many of these companies, we understand their needs in the documentation and cataloging damage to ensure as few delays in starting the restoration.

What is the Pack-Out Process?

Much like water loss situations, we focus heavily on content management when our team arrives for fire restoration in Raleigh and Apex homes. Many of the damaged belongings in the path of moving fire loss effects must get removed from the house and transported to our SERVPRO facility for focus cleaning and restoration processes. In our care, damaged personal belongings can expect:

    •    Surface Cleaning
    •    Soot Removal
    •    Deodorization
    •    Drying

Mitigation and Restoration Solutions for Fire-Damaged Homes

Recovering your fire damaged property can happen in multiple stages, and much of the early tasks involve providing a safe environment for our professionals to work in. This focus allows for efforts such as air quality control with air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators as well as the removal of soot and smoke residue from walls, ceilings, and floors within your Raleigh property.

Commercial

We offer a free service to area businesses called the Emergency READY Profile Plan (ERP) that can help determine the layout of structures, the location of essential elements like shutoffs and storage, and the business priorities when disasters strike. By providing our SERVPRO team with this information before emergencies occur, we can more efficiently reach your property and began administering the appropriate mitigation tactics safely.

When Do Cleaning and Restoration Occur?

It can be challenging to see your Raleigh business in disarray after a fire or water loss incident, especially if it has forced your doors closed. Cleaning and restoration are often the vital steps to get these doors open again, and this happens as soon as mitigation and other emergency services have completed. In many ways, this involves both our contractors and our restoration professionals working simultaneously.

Getting Your Business Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned

A clean and safe work environment has never been a more pressing need throughout Raleigh and other cities that we serve. Our latest defensive cleaning program (Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned) ensures that your business gets the top products, practices, and equipment available to our team to provide a sanitary space for your staff. This program focuses on surface cleaning and applying disinfection products to communal areas, heavily touched objects and spaces, and other points that could be hotspots for the transference of viral pathogens and bacterial microbes.

Storm

Substantial storm systems can have disastrous effects on Raleigh homes and businesses, especially after severe weather events like hurricanes or tropical storms. As a coastal state, North Carolina can see many damaging systems coming off the Atlantic Ocean. Despite our service area being inland, we can still experience many of the same destructive hurricanes and storm events that make landfall on our coasts.

What Steps Prevent Flooding from Getting Worse?

Acting quickly after structural damages occur, or in situations where flooding has become a widespread threat for communities, ensures that we can help Raleigh homes through damaging conditions. One of the most effective routes to prevent flooding from getting out of control is implementing extraction solutions as soon as possible. Many of these water removal tools that our professionals use includes:

    •    Submersible Pumps
    •    Trash Pumps
    •    Truck-Mount Pumps
    •    Wet Vacuums

Does SERVPRO Rebuild?

One of the distinct advantages of choosing our team over other restoration companies is the inclusion of general contracting professionals on our roster. We offer a comprehensive and full-service solution after storm losses, including full-scale build back when necessary in Raleigh homes.

Disasters can strike quickly, but our SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex team can respond fast to help. Give us a call anytime at (919) 615-1160.
