Protecting Your Home from Frozen and Bursting Pipes

11/29/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Jackson & Ross Counties provides 24 hour fire and water damage restoration service in Jackson and Ross counties and surrounding areas.

Southern Ohio has experienced some record cold temperatures this month. Though you may be taking extra steps to keep yourself warm, SERVPRO of Jackson & Ross Counties wants to remind you to keep your home safe as well.

The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety reports that pipes generally don't burst from simply freezing - it is actually the buildup of pressure between the frozen water blockage and the closed faucet that causes the pipe to burst.

Here at SERVPRO of Jackson & Ross counties, we care about our customers and want to pass on the following tips to help protect their homes:

1) Let a faucet slowly drip during extreme cold weather (under 20 degrees F) to provide pressure relief on the pipe.  If hot and cold water lines serve a fixture, make sure that both lines are contributing to the drip.

2) If you are planning to travel out of town, take the extra precaution of draining your water system.  To do this, shut off the main water valve and then turn on all fixtures until water stops flowing.  If there is no water in the lines, they can't freeze or burst.

In the event that the worst happens and you come home to a burst pipe and water in your home, SERVPRO of Jackson & Ross Counties provides emergency cleaning and restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—including all holidays.

Faster To Any Size Disaster

Flooding and water damage is very invasive. Water quickly spreads throughout your home and gets absorbed into floors, walls, furniture, and more.  SERVPRO of Jackson & Ross Counties arrives quickly and starts the water extraction process almost immediately. This immediate response helps to minimize the damage and the cleaning and restoration costs.

Leave Mold Remediation to the SERVPRO Professionals

3/15/2018 (Permalink)

Mold is a likely found in damp spaces like basements or in often in places where water damage has occurred and not properly dried.

Understanding How Mold Grows and Spreads in Your Home

Mold is one of the most neglected home maintenance problems that can quickly become a catastrophe. Spotting the damage early is the key to safe and effective remediation.

Mold damage restoration is not a DIY project. Efficient and successful remediation is a job for the professionals with years of experience and the right safety equipment. Trying to eliminate mold by yourself can help it spread to unaffected areas amplifying the problem. It is essential to understand the basics of mold and take the right precautions for fast and safe remediation.

What causes mold growth?

Mold begins its life from a microscopic spore; they are like seeds that can germinate in the right conditions. Interestingly, mold spores are present everywhere. So, it may not be possible to eliminate them entirely, but it is entirely possible to prevent the creation of conditions favorable for their germination.

One of the most important conditions for the spores to germinate is moisture. If the surfaces contain a high level of humidity, the spores can absorb it, swell and germinate giving rise to a network of filamentous structures called hyphae. Some of the hyphae grow into the surface providing an anchor for the network, while others can bear spores on their tops.

If the network of the hyphae is disturbed, these spores can become airborne and settle in other parts of your home. While cleaning the mold growth, SERVPRO professionals use a barrier system to prevent these spores from reaching the uncontaminated parts of your home. They also have the necessary equipment to clean the settled spores and prevent them from reaching other parts of your home.

Mold loves warm and moist environments.

Mold requires the right combination of temperature and moisture to germinate and grow. The ideal temperature being between 68 and 86 degrees. With these conditions in place, the settled sores can quickly spread.

The most important thing to control is the moisture level. SERVPRO Professionals can determine the residual moisture level in your home using state-of-the-art moisture sensing equipment. If the levels are high, they can correct them by addressing the underlying problem.

Call SERVPRO of Jackson & Ross Counties today to schedule an inspection.

Puff Backs

3/15/2018 (Permalink)

Soot can be stubborn and requires specific methods based on the source. Leave the cleanup to your local SERVPRO professionals.

How Do Puff Backs Occur? 

Puff backs occur due to a furnace malfunction and causes soot to spread throughout your home. This usually occurs with oil burning furnaces that have resulted in an explosion.

Removal Process:

Soot should likely be removed by a professional cleaning service in order to prevent further damage.  Specific products are used during the removal process and necessary precautions taken to protect other unaffected areas of your home.

Prevention:

One simple method of preventing a puff back is by constantly making sure the oil heating system is dust free. Another way for ultimate protection is to have your heating system inspected and serviced annually.

Professional Service:

If this happens to you, call SERVPRO of Jackson & Ross Counties at 740-286-2550. Our team offers multiple cleaning services to residential and commercial structures. Serving Jackson, Ross, Vinton, and Pike Counties and neighboring areas.

Fire, Smoke and Soot Damage

12/1/2017 (Permalink)

Every fire damage is unique. SERVPRO of Jackson & Ross has the equipment, expertise & experience to restore your home or business. Call 740-286-2550

It goes everywhere. Smoke and soot is extremely invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Did You Know? Here are some facts about smoke and soot:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Athens & Gallia Counties will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Toilet Overflow or Sewer Backup?

9/27/2017 (Permalink)


Call Today 740-286-2550

Water damage can be classified by the three types of contaminated water. SERVPRO Franchise Professionals will inspect your home or business to determine the appropriate plan of action for the type of water encountered.

The three types of contaminated water:

Category 1: "Clean Water"

Category 1 water is from a clean source like a broken water supply line or leaking faucet. If not treated quickly, this water can turn into category 2 or 3, depending on length of time, temperature, and contact with surrounding contaminants.

  • Water from a clean source like a broken water line
  • If left untreated, can degrade into category 2 or 3

Category 2: "Gray Water"

Category 2 water is contaminated and could cause discomfort or illness. Examples include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

  • May contain bacteria and viruses
  • Can quickly degrade into category 3 if left untreated

Category 3: "Black Water"

Category 3 water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and any contact should be avoided. Examples include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

  • May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
  • Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup

24 Hour Emergency Service

Water contaminated with sewage backup should be considered an emergency situation and dealt with as quickly as possible. SERVPRO Franchise Professionals are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are water damage restoration specialists with specialized training, equipment and protective gear to safely restore your home or business.

Do You Have a Mold Problem?

6/10/2016 (Permalink)

Mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
