SERVPRO Knows What to do When Your Pottsville Store Presents with Fire Damage and Extensive Loss 

Sudden fire damage is devastating to any business owner, especially when the loss is extensive. Depending on the impact, your retail store in Pottsville may be closed for days or weeks, resulting in financial hardship. Hiring skilled technicians to handle the mitigation and restoration after a fire ensures you get back on your feet faster. SERVPRO is available 24/7 to have a team to count on when it seems all hope is lost. Our fast reaction time and proven techniques lessen loss and help you open your  doors quicker than DIY methods. 

How Fast Does Restoration Begin?

Once you have fire damage in Pottsville, calling SERVPRO to your retail location puts a Green Fleet at your door in as little as four hours. We start right in on the assessment after your commercial space is deemed safe for entry. Each day that your business is closed, you may lose clientele, and there is the potential for secondary damage from moisture and foul odors that settle in. We work fast to keep these short-term and long-term damages from taking hold. 

What Makes Your Crew Qualified for the Job? 

We have fire and smoke restoration technicians (FST) that have been through extensive training to handle the debris, soot, and smoke damage left after a fire. These projects call for cleaning off stubborn residues and other soils that become nearly impossible to touch using consumer-grade products. We know what works best on various surfaces to ensure that we achieve our goals while salvaging as much as we can from your retail store interior. The ability to clean residue from shelving, displays, counters and other furnishings inside your store is more cost-effective than needing to replace them. 

Testing Surfaces 

Our team conducts pre-testing on various surfaces to determine what type of smoke in Pottsville caused the damage. We follow the soil composition so that we can select the best strategies and cleaning solutions to be most effective. 

  •   Wet Smoke Deposits - produces a greasy-type smoke signature that responds best to oil-based solvents for cleaning.
  •   Dry Smoke Deposits –this produces a lighter signature, which responds best to dry wiping or brushing and water-based cleaning products or solutions.

Are There Contaminants in the Air?

With any fire damage project, particulates may remain airborne. These odor-causing particles do bond with other particulates in the air, allowing them to linger. Our team remains mindful of these particulates from the moment that we begin the restoration phases. We use a range of air purifying equipment and methods to capture foul odors and particulates that may disperse during cleanup. We follow along with a set of deodorization procedures, that include: 

  • Removal of the source of the odor
  • Carefully cleaning away all odor-causing residues from various surfaces
  • Re-creation of the conditions that lead to odor penetration
  • Sealing of specific surfaces, as needed 

For light smoke odor situations in your retail location, we clean with a solution such as our Wall and All Surface Cleaner. We also work to control vapor odors with the help of Instant Odor Counteracting Beads. Our crew also has access to thermal fogging technology, which disperses a solvent fog to bind with odor-causing particulates throughout the commercial space. 

In a more involved fire damage project where a heavy smoke odor is present, we may use activated oxygen, which helps us concentrate on the most contaminated areas. 

Why Might Pack-Out Services Be Necessary? 

Depending on the layout of your Pottsville retail store, moving out contents may help for several reasons. Limited space calls for the removal of items to allow more room for effective and smooth mitigation. Pack-out services will enable us to relocate contents to our SERVPRO facility for cleaning or a secured storage location while cleaning and restoration commence. Our crew is detailed and careful, working to avoid any breakage while maintaining an inventory of all contents. 

  • We create a checklist detailing which items need moving, which is an instrumental record to have for yourself and your insurance company.
  • Before disposing of any unsalvageable contents, they are cataloged for your records and your insurance adjuster. 

We handle the boxes' packing up, tagging all contents, and ensuring everything is transported safely to the warehouse. If necessary, we subcontract a moving company to handle the move. Once your retail store's interior gets restored, we move items back in and ensure that all areas are cleaned and sanitized so that it is “Like it never even happened.” 

SERVPRO of Pottsville is the team to call whenever you need help bringing your business back to life after taking on fire damage. Call (570) 622-8991 to have a creew deployed to begin assessment and restoration.

How Can I Protect My Pottsville Office from Migrating Flood Damages?

interior of an office completely flooded Flooding can literally overwhelm your office space. Contact SERVPRO for water removal and remediation.

Our SERVPRO team can arrive fast during an emergency to establish containment barriers to protect undamaged areas of your commercial structure. 

Flooding damage does not always happen all at once in Pottsville commercial buildings. Whether the threat comes from a breach in the roof or masonry on the walls of the structure or floor drains backing up into the building from flooding conditions outside, some disasters arrive at a slower pace that can allow you to protect your office and other vital areas of the building.

A slower-paced emergency can protect some of your building's contents from irreparable damage, but it can also allow our team to manage commercial flood damage in your Pottsville building before it becomes overly destructive. We can arrive shortly after the first notice of loss, establish containment barriers, and monitor the progress of rising floodwater and migration. As much as we prioritize the recovery of exposed areas of the building, we also make it a point to prevent avoidable damage to the rest of the building whenever possible. 

What Happens if Flooding Damages My Office?

Whether a product of the floodwater affecting your office space immediately upon penetration or through migration from other areas of the structure, addressing these concerns is vital to get you back in business as quickly as possible. With specific approaches, we can work on removing water and moisture from the affected areas and then setting our sights on cleaning up lingering residues. The floor recovery process for your office often follows these steps after we have relocated the contents of the room in the path of the moving water.

Flood damage can be threatening to your building, but our SERVPRO of Pottsville team can arrive quickly during these emergencies to prevent the situation from worsening. Give us a call whenever you need us at (570) 622-8991.

How Can I Ensure My Home Regains Its Pre-Loss State After Flood Damage Incidents in Pottsville?

Assistance from SERVPRO Can Help Ensure Proper Management of All Aspects of the Loss Guaranteeing a Positive Outcome

Storms can cause intense damage to your property in a short time. Even when the structure is left standing, general soiling, shredded paneling, and damaged finishes can lead you to question whether the property can return to normal. SERVPRO helps stricken Pottsville homeowners take a proactive restoration approach that restores normalcy.

What might I overlook that can contribute positively to the restoration of flood damage in Pottsville

  • Taking photos 
  • Retaining pieces of damaged material
  • Meticulously evaluating the loss

Restoring property to its previous condition requires a precise reference point. No matter how skilled the restoration team is, creating the results you want out of thin air is not possible. Photos help provide a definite reference point after everything is torn down or moved during restoration. Another issue that can lead to disappointment after renovation is over is replacement material failing to match what was there initially.

Our SERVPRO technicians help eliminate these problems by taking several photos and videos from the time we arrive at the loss site. We also retain small pieces of material such as carpets, pad, or even drywall so that we choose identical replacements.

What must be fixed to restore flood-damaged property?

Flood damage from storms is rarely uniform even in properties affected during the same incident. However, some problems are common in most incidents, and therefore planning how to address them is necessary.

  • Cleanup of soiled areas
  • Deodorization 
  • Decontamination 

Flooding dirties properties in many ways. The common ones include groundwater depositing silt and mud from outside while the water supplies moisture, causing deterioration of materials inside the structure. High moisture levels can also spark mold development. 

Thoroughly cleaning up the entire house helps reverse the soiling. Our SERVPRO technicians use a combination of conventional cleaning products and disinfectants to remove contaminants as well. 

When you need professional assistance to deal with flooding, SERVPRO of Pottsville can provide the resources you need. Call us at (570) 622-8991 to help. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

What Happens with All This Debris Left After My Housefire?

6/2/2020 (Permalink)

We Get Your Pottsville Home Back to Normal and Remove All Debris When You Call SERVPRO to Help with Fire Damage 

The charred remnants and debris left after a fire in your Pottsville's home may make you feel overwhelmed and anxious. All unsalvageable items need disposing of, but there could be areas of your home that call for total stripping down or replacement to ensure safety. Hiring our team of professional restoration technicians gets you the prompt action you need to tackle any messy debris left within the fire loss zone. 

What Do You Do for Fire Restoration? 

When you call us to help with fire damage to your Pottsville home, our team springs into action, and a crew arrives as quickly as possible. We perform an assessment and determine the full scope of the project. What this does is help us to formulate the most efficient steps. Cleanup of your charred debris and unsalvageable materials begin, ensuring everything gets removed so that the next phase may begin. 

Is There any Cleaning I Can Start? 

Burned materials throughout the fire loss zone leave behind smoke particles and soot residue that create strong odors. Additionally, soot residue is tough to remove once it binds to various surfaces. Our skilled technicians have the experience and EPA-registered cleaning products that allow us to restore your interior. 

When called for fire restoration, our team works through the steps to:  

  • Secure your property, ensuring that the structure is safe so that we can proceed with cleanup and restoration.
  • During the walkthrough, we take note of any potential hazards and plan accordingly.
  • Safety issues get addressed promptly, including hanging or burned sheetrock, exposed wires, hanging broken light fixtures, and other risks. 

Once the crew chief wraps up the initial assessment, we begin removing any unsalvageable, severely burnt items. In some fire loss incidents, items and materials sustain damaged to the point that they have to be disposed of and replaced. However, our team does whatever possible to clean and salvage as many items as we can while using our advanced restoration techniques. 

Are All Charred Building Materials Replaced? 

We address building material charring in several ways depending on the situation, such as: 

  • Partial Removal –Should there only be ¼' worth of charring on your wooden studs, we might be able to remove some of it. In some instances, we use slight agitation or steel brushes to remove charring so that the wooden studs can be sealed and refinished.
  • Specialized Techniques –When you have significant charring throughout your home, we may sand it or use soda blasting or dry ice blasting to remove the damage successfully.  

Where Does All of the Debris Go? 

SERVPRO takes debris and garbage removal seriously on each of our Pottsville fire damage projects. Following EPA guidelines, we carefully dispose of all waste products, which helps to cut back on the environmental impact and reduce worksite injuries during the restoration. Our disposal protocols allow us to safely and efficiently remove charred wood, ash, rubble, and unsalvageable materials or belongings.  

How Will You Handle the Smoke Damage? 

Smoke odors pose a challenge after any size fire, but we have the latest methods and techniques for the full removal of smoke particles and soot residue. Hot smoke permeates your interior during a fire, which flows through walls and penetrates porous materials. How we proceed with restoration efforts depend on the type of smoke that developed. 

Both wet and dry smoke need addressing after a fire, so our team tests the residue left throughout the home to determine the damage and to select the best cleaning measures. 

  • Wet smoke is created at a lower temperature and comes from rubber and plastics burning. This smoke residue webs and becomes sticky, making it difficult to clean without specific measures.
  • Dry smoke develops at a higher temperature and is fast burning, which comes from materials like paper and wood.  

Some of the different cleaning and deodorizing tools we use to address foul smoke odors in your home include the following: 

  • Thermal foggers, or dry fogging equipment:This equipment turns solvent-based deodorizers into a vapor that chemically reacts with odor-causing residues to eradicate them.
  • Wet fogging equipment:This works by atomizing liquid deodorizers into a fine mist that combines with the odor-causing particulates to facilitate easier removal.
  • Air scrubbers:These units work to remove any airborne particulates from the environment.
  • Injection devices:These put deodorizers into your carpeting,upholstery, or other confined spaces. 

Odor-causing elements are no match for our fire damage restoration efforts at SERVPRO of Pottsville. Call us at (570) 622-8991 for emergency service, and we deploy a crew to your location as quickly as possible. We are Faster to Any Size Disaster!

SERVPRO Can Remove Water and Moisture from Your Pottsville Home and Mitigate the Damage

SERVPRO specializes in removing water from structures. After an emergency occurs, our team comes immediately to your Pottsville water-damaged residence. We can do the pumping and extraction that is necessary to remove the water. After this process of water removal in Pottsville, we can go ahead and reinspect the structure. Most houses have permeable building materials, so we need to remove as much moisture as possible before it causes secondary water damage.

Why Do We Need to Be So Proactive?

Water Damage in your Pottsville home can be long-lasting if measures are not taken to get rid of residual moisture. If we do not act immediately and just let the water sit, the following may occur:

  • Drywall disintegration
  • Ceilings that ripple and potentially collapse
  • Paint and wallpaper irregularities
  • Carpets that pull apart from the walls
  • Hardwood flooring that juts out
  • Laminate flooring that buckles
  • Loss of structural integrity for wood structures and metal that rusts

Your home is a massive investment, probably the biggest one you make in your life. You need to make sure that it stays intact so that the value is not degraded.

What are the Next Steps to Ensure the Problem is Resolved?

The SERVPRO crew uses thermal imaging cameras and moisture detectors to inspect for additional areas that need attention. Then, we put in air movers near the wet materials. Our heaters accelerate the process. Finally, the dehumidifiers finish the job, ensuring that your home is restored to equilibrium, "Like it never even happened."

What Tools Do I Need to Clean Up After a Fire in My Pottsville Home?

5/10/2020 (Permalink)

fire damaged kitchen cabinets Fires can occur without notice. Contact SERVPRO to remediate fire damage to your property.

SERVPRO recommends you outsource the task of cleaning up fire loss in your Pottsville for both safety and the best outcome

A little or a lot of damage left behind after a fire in Pottsville needs professional help to clean up, and the reason is simple, soot can spread throughout the home, and with it, fire odors. Plus, with the proper cleaning methods, walls and ceilings may be completely restorable rather than requiring replacement of sheetrock, priming, and painting. 

What Type of Cleaner Gets Used for Smoke and Fire Damage on Walls and Furniture? 

When cleaning up fire damage in your Pottsville home, there are numerous equipment and cleaning agents needed. SERVPRO technicians test the smoke residues and the surfaces getting cleaned to determine the best fit. When homeowners attempt to DIY their fire loss with consumer-grade cleaners, in some cases, they can wind up, causing greater damage than the fire did. Some of the equipment commonly found in the arsenal of the technicians include:

  • Dry cleaning sponges for lifting away dry smoke residues
  • Heavy-duty sponges for working on wet smoke residues
  • Professional cleaning solutions with solvents to release smoke 
  • Air scrubbers to capture airborne soot particles
  • Protective clothing and respirators as soot can be an irritant

Special Considerations for Hardwood Furnishings

Numerous applications assist in lessening the harm done by smoke and the heat in a Pottsville home fire to furnishings. Wood furniture may have restoration potential in many cases. A smoke-covered favorite end table may look horrific when covered in a thick, black residue. However, with the correct application of cleaning agents to release the grip the residue has on the surface of the wood, the table may have strong possibilities of a full recovery after Pottsville fire damage for reuse in the home.

Things that may make the furniture non-restorable include heavy exposure to water that caused the joints to swell and crack and too long of a time frame before the mitigation services began. Another common factor is exposure to high heat that caused the structure to become brittle and unreliable for reuse. 

Upon request, the SERVPRO techs can bring in industry professionals to inspect items such as electronics or furniture for inspection before bringing back into the home. The experts can examine items exposed to fire loss and determine if any repairs are necessary for reuse. Contents exposed to fire, particularly electronics, should never get plugged in and tested without an inspection. 

What is the Process for Removal of Soot from Hardwood Furniture?

When addressing this type of fire loss on furniture, SERVPRO technicians inspect the item to determine it has restoration potential. They then use brushes and dry cleaning sponges to lift away any loose residues. The remaining "stuck on" smoke damage needs the application of cleaning agents specifically designed for use on wood products. In this manner, the techs can remove the black coating on the furniture without marring the surface. In some cases, the furniture may require revarnishing to return it to its pre-fire status.

Resolving Fire Odors in the Home

Once the contents and structure have the evidence of the fire removed, it is time to handle the smoke odors that may remain. Before beginning mitigation, containment of the work area most likely happened, and this includes covering vents. Once soot particles invade the ductwork, odors can spread wherever they go in the home.

The technicians rely on a few critical pieces of equipment such as; 

  • Hydroxyl generators that safely eliminate odors through the use of UV light
  • The use of thermal fogging within the structure
  • Deodorizing cleaning agents
  • The use of sealants on walls to halt any further odors from embedded soot

After confirming the air quality in the loss area has no further fire odors, the technicians inspect the ductwork in the home to determine if it requires cleaning to remove any residual odors. This is particularly likely if the ductwork has dirt, dust, and debris that can trap and hold soot particles

Final Touches After Fire Loss Mitigation

Even in cases of small scale fires in a residential property, there are often repairs necessary for the full restoration of the home. The sealant applied on painted walls to halt the odor still needs priming and painting. While hardwood flooring may have been restorable from the exposure to water and heat, it may need a light sanding and refinishing to return to service for the home. If SERVPRO is not handling these tasks, they can assist homeowners in engaging with local professionals to ensure the job gets done quickly and correctly.

When large or small fire damage situations happen, SERVPRO of Pottsville at (570) 622-8991 stands ready to help local property owners clean away the loss and restore their home to its preloss condition. 

What Can I Do If One Of My Windows Breaks During A Rainstorm?

4/29/2020 (Permalink)

Broken window We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

SERVPRO Can Help You Assess Any Problems That May Have Occurred In Your Pottsville House After A Storm Or Flood.

Rainstorms can bring with them excessive amounts of rainfall in a short period and swirling high-speed winds. If the wind picks up enough, it could cause a tree branch or rock to fly into your window and break it. Once a window in your house becomes broken during a rainstorm, moisture can enter your house and cause you several more issues.

What Is The First Step To Take After A Window Breaks?

Call In A Professional Company: SERVPRO can help you mitigate flood damage occurring in Pottsville and surrounding areas by implementing the industry's best techniques and equipment.

Seal The Structure: Once we arrive at your residence the first step we take is to board up and seal your broken window so that water stops entering.

Mitigate Safety Hazards: If there is any broken glass in your house, we can safely remove it as well as mitigate any other potential hazards.

Inspect And Assess The Building: Once the working area is deemed safe, we begin using moisture detection tools to figure out where the H2O traveled and how wet your contents and building materials got.

How Can You Remove Water From My Floors And Carpets?

The first step our SERVPRO technicians take when mitigating moisture-related issues is to remove as much liquid as possible before it evaporates and soaks into the items in your house. If your carpets got wet, we can use a heavy-duty extractor with weighted extraction tools to compress the carpets and squeeze out the moisture.

How Do You Dry Out The Rest Of The Wet Items In My Home?

Air Movers: We can use fans and air movers to create circulation to speed up evaporation.

Dehumidifiers: We can use these machines to remove moisture from the air.

Heaters: Drying best occurs at warmer temperatures so we can increase the temperature in your house if needed.

If your building materials ever get wet after you have a window break during a storm in Cressona or Pine Grove, call SERVPRO of Pottsville at (570) 622-8991 immediately.

Does SERVPRO have a ERP for our Pottsville Fire Damage?

SERVPRO Has Emergency READY Profiles for Fire Recovery for Pottsville Businesses.

You cannot predict the time and origin of disasters in your Pottsville school. With the unpredictability and multiple potential causes of emergencies like fire losses, our SERVPRO professionals stay prepared for these disasters as much as possible. Readiness is a staple of the work that we do, and that involves understanding what a property like your school needs to get back to normal and the appropriate containment strategies to prevent cross-contamination of fire loss effects while restoration and mitigation get underway.

Preparing for disasters might not mean predicting them, but it can mean having the right planning in place to address the immediate needs of water and fire damage in Pottsville schools Considering the several hundred students and thousands of family members connected to the school when disasters strike, it is relieving to make the appropriate provisions in advance, so there is no delay in our qualified professionals responding after the first responders turn the property back over.

An Emergency READY Profile Plan (ERP) is a free service that we can offer commercial customers and property management before emergencies occur. Our crew chief and project management can sit down with school personnel to get the layout of the premises and the positioning of vital construction elements like utility shutoffs, exits, and prioritized content retrieval and protection. After extinguishment, there can often be a need for water removal and drying, as well as other emergency services. These tasks can get delayed or entirely stalled by technicians going through the appropriate clearance channels to get approval.

ERPs are an accessible app available to the overseeing personnel for the school and our SERVPRO professionals as well amid a crisis. This application designates our team as the responding technicians in an emergency, making sure that our experts reach the damaged area to begin mitigation and restoration to get children back in classes as soon as possible.

Emergency READY Profile Plans can save money and time for your area school, despite how damaged the structure might be by getting our SERVPRO of Pottsville team there quickly to help. No matter what your institution needs after a fire, our professionals can help when you call (570) 622-8991.
