Fire Damage? Why SERVPRO is the Company to Call in Twin Falls 

A Twin Falls household fire can be anything from a small blaze quickly confined and knocked down by a home fire extinguisher to a full-house conflagration requiring extensive effort from local firefighters before resolution. Regardless of where your fire recovery scenario falls on the continuum, there are reasons why consulting with our professional fire restoration specialists ensures the best results.

Even a seemingly minor flare-up in the kitchen or pile of smoldering rags can create fire damage in Twin Falls that moves far from the original site. Fire residues are toxic regardless of their quantity, and a failure to clean up all smoke and soot allows their corrosive nature to damage structural components and contents continuously until eradicated. Training and experience in tracking fire damage throughout an entire building are why our crews can make a positive impact on remediation efforts in your residence. 

Inviting our team into your home after a fire event gives you access to the full spectrum of our remediation services. Cleaning up after a fire involves much more than vacuuming ashes and scrubbing soot off walls. Water removal, structural drying, disinfection, targeted content cleaning techniques, and deodorization are just some of the additional tasks needed to return your dwelling to preloss condition. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Reconstruction Certification (IICRC)-trained technicians hold certifications in multiple restoration specialties, which is why SERVPRO can take on your fire loss start to finish.

We Can Handle Any Size Disaster That Occurs In Your Jerome Business

6/17/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial We Can Handle Any Size Disaster That Occurs In Your Jerome Business If your bookstore is threatened by flooding from storms and harsh weather, then contact SERVPRO to get on the phone with one of our team members.

How A Storm Can Cause Commercial Flood Damage In Jerome Businesses

Storms in Jerome often bring flooding which can severely disrupt your business, possibly forcing you to shut down for repairs. Bookstores rely on customers walking in and out of the store, so it is vital that you be able to reopen your doors as soon as possible. When flooding disrupts your business, you need experienced and qualified professionals who can work flexibly to accommodate your work schedule.

Fortunately, SERVPRO Water damage restoration technicians (WRT) check all these boxes and are highly qualified and experienced in mitigating commercial flood damage in Jerome businesses. Storm waters consisting of Category 3 black water can seep into the carpeting on your bookstore's floor, ruining it. Cat 3 water carries dirt, debris, and bacteria. Additionally, flood waters can negatively impact the wood in your bookshelves, and, most importantly, it can ruin your books, which are the lifeblood of any bookstore business.

SERVPRO can arrive at times that work best for you so that we maximize efficiency while also minimizing disruptions to your regular flow of business. Once we remove standing waters with the assistance of industrial grade wet vacs, we can inspect your carpet. Moisture sensors can be used to determine if water has penetrated to the underlying subflooring. Unfortunately, cat 3 flood water typically contaminates carpeting, forcing us to remove and discard of it. Affected bookshelves can warp and cup after long term water exposure, so we can speed up their drying process with air movers and drying mats.

Books in your inventory that contact water can be air dried with the assistance of dehumidifiers that speed up the drying process. Unfortunately, books and documents affected by water are unlikely to be fully restored.

If your bookstore is threatened by flooding from storms and harsh weather, then contact SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties at (208) 735-1447 to get on the phone with one of our qualified team members.

Fire Damage Cleanup For Your Jerome Home

A lightning strike to your Jerome home can start a direct ire since the core temperature of the lighting is around fifty thousand degrees Fahrenheit. The harm to your structure and possessions can be quite extensive. Wood and other flammable construction materials can quickly explode when they are exposed to the high temperatures of a lightning strike.

When you Jerome home has experienced fire damage from spring thunderstorms, you need immediate assistance to restore the damage. SERVPRO, a professional remediation company, can quickly come to your rescue. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. Plus, with our expertise and experience, we can have your home fixed up in no time.

The main objective of SERVPRO techs when providing emergency services during restoration is to protect both you and your family and your home. We want to prevent the fire and smoke damage from creating additional damage. We also strive to provide a safe work site for anyone who enters your structure, and then we can prepare for mitigation and restoration of the site.

Every fire loss is unique, so the kinds of emergency services vary from job to job. They can include building inspections so we can evaluate your home for any safety or health hazards, boarding up the structure to secure the property and prevent intrusions, and drying the structure from water that was used when the fire was extinguished.

We may need to establish emergency electricity for lighting and heat. Some situations require us to deodorize the areas that were affected. The degree of smoke odors present might require this step to make your home habitable again. We may use thermal fogging or air scrubbers to do this.

Sometimes, initial cleaning is a good idea. If restoration isn’t begun directly after the fire is out, some pre-cleaning can stop even more damage from smoke and soot residues occurring. Furniture and carpeting can be pre-cleaned to remove the worst stains. Soot residues are acidic and can be wiped from porcelain and metals, and we take charred materials out of your home that could remind you of the loss from the fire.

SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties treats each case of fire damage individually, and your home in Roseworth, Hazelton, or Buhl is no different. Give us a call at (208) 735-1447 as soon as the fire is out so we can help you restore your residence and back to the life you know best.

Unusual Storms Leave Homes with Flood Damage in Twin Falls

The area around Twin Falls seems to have had more than its share of strange weather patterns lately. Storms that last for unusually long periods and leave the area overflowing with rainwater occur much more often than in years past. This extra rain and its new frequency can create detrimental conditions over vast areas and affect hundreds of homes and businesses.

SERVPRO's professional mitigation team is always ready to help those in Twin Falls and nearby areas effectively deal with flood damage. Gaps in the roof caused by ripped-off shingles from torrential rain or wind can leave upper levels of your home saturated by the rain and full of debris from trees. Flooding that invades your house through its exterior doors also pushes debris inside.

Contamination created by over-the-ground flooding means your home's interior now contains hazards that can cause health effects in both people and pets. It relieves many of our customers when they learn we come prepared for any amount of flooding, including murky water that leaves your home soiled and full of dangers. Decontamination work begins soon after our arrival.

Our technicians check for overhead flooding that might affect electrical components of your home because of water that traveled down through the interiors of walls. Repairs of the electrical system, just like other elements within your house, should not begin until these sections of your home no longer contain any excess moisture.

We use cameras with infrared capabilities to locate such pockets of moisture, and then follow up before and after mitigation to determine the amount of drying time each area needs. We cut away areas that show deterioration and leave undamaged materials, much like we do with water damage from clean sources.

When storms cause streams and rivers to flood your neighborhood, water starts destroying your floors and steadily works upwards. The sections of walls covered in porous materials which we cut away stretch from the floor to several inches above the water line mark. Because the uppermost portions readily absorb the excess humidity in the air, drying these sections helps protect your home from the effects microbial growth and sogginess can cause. Unfortunately, these places do not remain dry, even though no direct contact with the flood happened.

SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties knows how to use the latest in mitigation and restoration equipment to make your flood damage nightmare in Rogerson, Buhi, or Clover go away. Contact us at (208) 735-1447 when your home needs professionals who can make everything "Like it never even happened."

Commercial Fire Damage Makes A Smoky Sooty Mess Of Taverns In Jerome

The typical fare in a tavern around Jerome includes deep-fried foods. During busy times, forgetting to pull a basket of food out of the fryer can start a fire. Not only does the immediate odor from the hot oil permeate everything, but it also smells terrible. Heavy odors like this fill a tavern from one end to the other because the residue clings to every surface imaginable.

The people who enjoy a night out playing pool or having a few drinks do not want to smell the effects of commercial fire damage at your Jerome tavern. They also do not want to drink out of glasses or bottles that feel greasy or sticky. Your servers and bartenders also work hard to keep your tavern clean. We can help by removing the oily deposits left on walls, mirrors, tables, and other surfaces, making everything “Like it never even happened.”

Stripping each surface free of anything foreign takes time. To make things more efficient and allow us to finish within a reasonable time, SERVPRO specialists work in teams. Teamwork gives us additional eyes to double-check the work.

Wiping metal and glass cooler doors with special agents that cut through the greasy film eliminates the spreading of oil when these your staff opens these doors. We also clean your inventory, so pouring drinks does not require special handling of now-slippery bottles, mugs, pitchers, or glasses.

Near the kitchen where the fire took place, we concentrate on removing the smell by cleaning everything carefully, and possibly repainting the walls and ceiling. We pay attention to the area around doorways, removing as much soiling as possible, so paint adheres beautifully. We clean the floors in the kitchen as well as the rest of the tavern.

Because oil fires leave such a heavy smell, we rely on thermal fogging as well as spot treatments to rid the building of any remaining odors. We rely on your sense of smell after these treatments as odor detection varies from one individual to the next. Our experts do everything to ensure that our customers are satisfied with our services, including asking for your input on this and other aspects of fire damage restoration.

SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties can help get things back in great shape after a fire happens in your tavern’s kitchen.

SERVPRO Can Help Keep Your Tile Safe!

Leaks are a normal part of a home owner's life in Burley. Pipes get old, sinks get clogged, and faucets break from the wear they experience from normal everyday usage. Most leaks are not a cause for concern for homeowners and do not require professional help, however, some leaks can go on for long periods of time without being detected. Long term leaks from a faulty bathroom pipe can cause major damage to bathroom tile, requiring professional help.

IICRC technicians from SERVPRO are experienced in water cleanup in Burley homes from bathroom tiling. The longer a leak goes on, the higher the chance that spillage seeps into sub flooring. Once our technicians arrive, they can first perform an inspection to determine the amount of damage that has occurred and can use moisture meters to detect how much water penetrated into the sub flooring. To draw any excess moisture out of your floors, we can deploy air movers to pull moisture out and utilize dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air.

Unfortunately, drying your subfloor can require that the some tile be removed. Asphalt and vinyl tile may have to be discarded after being removed, however, in some cases they can be dried, cleaned and replaced. Concrete and ceramic tile, on the other hand, is unlikely to be damaged beyond salvaging. Both are more resistant to water spills and may only require re-grouting after being exposed to water. However, concrete tile can absorb water and make it easier for mold to grow in your home. To prevent this, disinfectants can be sprayed to kill off any mold that appears.

If you are in urgent need of water cleanup services, then don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties at (208) 735-1447. We are available 24/7 and are always ready to assist you in beginning the consultation process.

Cleaning Air Ducts from Fire Effects in Jerome Homes

Part of what allows fire loss effects to spread so completely throughout your Jerome residence is the open air ducts and HVAC system that can become accessed by soot, smoke, and debris particulates. Since many of the residents throughout our service area regularly allow these appliances to run almost continually to condition and temper the air inside of a home, when disasters strike, these pathways for conditioned air become penetration points for damaging fire loss effects.

While multiple fire damage effects must get addressed in your Jerome home after a disaster, an often overlooked area during restoration and recovery is the ductile network. Our SERVPRO professionals include all areas of your property in with the full and thorough inspection of the damage when we first arrive at your address and have sophisticated cameras to travel the full length of these duct shafts to determine the extent of buildup, damages, and hazards that exist throughout the system.

With this inspection of the HVAC system, we can determine not only the effect that the fire has on these components but also the existing buildup and threats that existed before the fire incident. Our air duct cleaning experts have advanced tools that can match the size of your specific ducts and run a bristled brush through each segment of this network to break sediment and buildup loose, along with the more recent effects like soot and smoke residue as well.

With high-powered vacuums positioned at specific vent locations, we can extract loose debris and particulates before they have the chance to re-enter the environment and continue to cause problems, agitate allergens, or lead to potential health effects for our SERVPRO professionals exposed or your family.

By cleaning out the air ducts, you can help to restore peak efficiency to your HVAC system, and the process can address specific fire-damage conditions like odors and soot/smoke buildup.

SERVPRO - Restoring Water Damaged Homes In Jerome

Around Jerome, flooding is not a real concern unless much snow melts over a weekend. Even then, most home water intrusions are from more common issues like a pipe connection freezing and cracking. As the weather warms, homeowners get out more and can see where even minor damage can spill a lot of water over time.

When Jerome residents find this type of water damage, it can run from minor problems like replacing a couple of drywall panels, to an extensive rebuild of a garage or laundry room wall. Regardless of the extent, SERVPRO response teams are ready to repair and restore each home to its original condition.

Specialists begin with repairing the damage and removing the water. Team members can perform minor repairs such as replacing a connector or changing out a split hose. For major damage, the team leader always recommends using a licensed plumber or general contractor. After stopping the leak source, another team member begins drawing out the water with an extraction wand. In a smaller location like a garage, removal usually takes less than a day.

Next, SERVPRO specialists remove property for disposal or restoration. For leaks unnoticed over the winter, water can soak into and ruin paper, cardboard boxes, building material like wood and drywall, and fabrics like stored spring or summer clothing. In some cases, mold spores can expand and grow, rendering many of these items not restorable.

For restorable items, team members can combine drying them with drying out the garage as well. They place wet items on pallets or racks and install several fans to create air circulation within the garage and open the doors, weather permitting, to push the damp air outside.

To remove water from the inside air and draw it out of both personal and structural property, they install a dehumidifier. This device can remove over 20 gallons each day, depending on the amount of moisture in the air.

When needed, specialists can perform minor demolition and replace interior walls to include the framing. One of our trained teams can install it and hang new drywall, even in a large garage or laundry room, in only a day or two.

For SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties, our goal is to return you to a dry, safe home as quickly as we can. To schedule a visit, contact us today at (208) 735-1447. We are here for you.

Our Team Is Prepared To Handle Quick Removal Of Flood Damage In Twin Falls

Storm Damage Our Team Is Prepared To Handle Quick Removal Of Flood Damage In Twin Falls We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to offer our expertise, experience, and necessary equipment to restore your home.

Why Professional Cleanup is Necessary with Flood Damage in Twin Falls

The water damage from a storm that reaches the interior through a leak in the roof or a broken window is insidious to both your home and contents. The longer things remain even damp, the more damage that is happening — the weakening of structural materials, the possibility of mold and of course - odors.

When flood damage happens in a Twin Falls home, it is imperative that the premises have water cleanup efforts that are more than using a wet/dry vac and throwing towels on the floor. That can give the appearance that water is gone, but residual moisture is often found trapped in sheetrock, subflooring, porous items and can cause further issues the longer it remains.

SERVPRO technicians are certified in the science of psychrometry, or the study of air and water vapor. When we are called to mitigate flood damage, our goal is to first get the affected areas as dry as possible, no matter how much water is in the home. For small-size water invasions, we have portable pumps that quickly extract the standing water in short order.

The high-volume standing rovers that use the weight of the technician operating it to force water to the surface are especially beneficial for moving out flood water quickly. The rovers are particularly adept for maneuvering around corners and in small spaces. Items too waterlogged to restore through our proprietary methods are removed. Flood cuts are often performed at this stage of cleanup to remove damaged portions of drywall well above where moisture has wicked into, so adequate airflow can dry the interior wall cavities.

Drying goals are set, and the affected areas are dried using our air movers. Special configurations are set up to direct air into flooring or wall cavities as needed. Each time our technicians set up equipment to dry a property, the setup is unique to that location as we use the angles in a structure to assist in the extraction of moist air for faster drying in tandem with dehumidifiers to capture and remove water vapor.

SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties stands ready to come to your property any time of the day or night to mitigate flood damage. We are available at (208) 735-1447 and have the equipment and expertise to make your water loss "Like it never even happened."
