Prepare for Storm Season

9/3/2019 (Permalink)

Earlier this year Southern California endured one of its heaviest rain seasons where both commercial  and residential customers experienced damage from the winter storms.

We know the amount of damage winter storms can do. Now is the time to prepare. 

SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning has 2 very simple suggestions: (1) Clean off you roofs (2) Clear your gutters and downspouts. That doesn't sound like much, but it can make a huge difference. Standing water on a float roof is a formula for disaster. 

Each year we inspect and remove a significant amount of debris off our customers roofs.  An inspection form SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning includes a visual inspection with photos and a report of our findings. This type or preparation requires more time and effort up front, but can save you money and stress in the long run. 

FIRE DAMAGE . . . WHAT NOW?

Soot damage removal the SERVPRO way

Exposure to smoke, ashes, and soot from a fire can have harmful effects to your home and health. Long-term exposure to toxins found in smoke, ashes, and soot can contaminate and damage your home as well as have a damaging effect to your lungs and heart.

It's possible your home may have dangerous toxins.

If your home has recently been exposed to smoke, ashes, or soot from a fire, it's possible that dangerous particles and contaminates have settled into your home. And although smoke damage can be visible to the eye, it can also be invisible and hard to trace, hiding in hard to reach places. Behind furniture, attics, air ducks, and other air cleaning systems.

A simple clean or wipe down is not enough, and in most cases, can even MAKE THINGS WORSE. Improper cleaning can further spread dangerous toxins to other areas of the house not affected by a fire. Turning on fans and other HVAC units can further spread toxins throughout your home, making your home a fire and toxin hazard. Smoke odor and toxins may also remain in furniture, clothing, carpet, and other places after a fire, unless properly cleaned and deodorized. Professional chemicals and equipment are needed to eliminate smoke, ashes, soot, odor and other dangerous toxins. Preparing and Informing yourself for a fire can be the best thing you can do for your home and your health.

LET US HELP YOU Our specialized professionals at SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning can inspect, clean, and restore your property. Bringing your home back to the conditions it was prior to a fire.

6 THINGS TO DO AFTER A FIRE

5/1/2019 (Permalink)

Soot removal after a fire by SERVPRO fire specialist

We’re not going to kid you. Fire damage restoration is tough work. People call SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning frequently to ask for advice on how to clean up after a fire.  Here are seven of the best tips we give people who ask about fire damage restoration.

Most people can put these tips into practice. But remember that fire damage restoration takes time, work, and skill. Realistically consider whether you want to try these ideas on your own or whether you’d be better off hiring the highly trained staff of SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning who will guarantee their work.

  1. Remove Smoke Damage

With any fire you’ll have a degree of smoke damage to your walls, wall paper, and paint. If the smoke damage is not too serious, you should be able to scrub it clean with detergents and bleach. Soot from smoke damage is greasy stuff, so always try to dust as much of it off from a surface before trying to scrub the surface clean. Often, you’ll want to repaint, but make sure all surfaces are clean and dry before you paint.

  1. Limit Activity & Other Simple Fire Damage Restoration Steps

Until your house is restored, limit your activity and movement in the house. This helps prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets. Keep people’s hands clean so you don’t further soil upholstery, walls, and woodwork. Protect your things by placing clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery, and carpet traffic areas. Before you clean know the best cleaning method for that particular cleaning job (one example: Clean and protect chrome with a light coating of petroleum jelly or oil.) Wash both sides of the leaves on your houseplants. Change your HVAC filter and tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers.

  1. Get Rid of Mold & Mildew

Firefighters are great. They save many a live and many a home. But they do introduce mold and mildew into houses when they must use water to extinguish the fire. SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning highly recommends you hire fire damage restoration professionals to deal with mold and mildew. Mold and mildew can cause serious health problems. It’s difficult for a nonprofessional to know for certain if all the areas affected by the mold and mildew are cleaned properly. And mold and mildew can contaminate your furniture, carpets, clothing, mattresses, walls, and vents. The best thing you can do immediately is to air out every room and clean out all vents and filters.

  1. Replace Carpets. Clean And Dry Your Floors

Your floors and carpets end up absorbing the worst of the damage from all the water used to put out a fire. In almost every case, SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning recommends that you pull up any carpets that have water damage and replace them. Water can also seep underneath vinyl flooring and into the cracks in hardwood. You must address this. If you have experience with flooring, you can lift it up and clean under it BUT . . . calling SERVPRO is a better for your peace of mind.

  1. Avoid Smearing Soot Into Clothing

Cleaning smoke damage from clothing is one of the biggest jobs you’ll have after a fire. Make sure you don’t smear the greasy soot into the clothing or just throw the smoky clothes into the wash. Often times dry cleaning is the best bet, and you should ask around local dry cleaners to see if any have experience with post-fire laundry.

  1. Scrub, Soak, And Cleaning Dishes

Dishes are also important items to clean thoroughly after a fire because they will be in contact with your food. Scrub all dishes well, let them soak in a solution of bleach and water (2 tablespoons of bleach per gallon) for at least 20 minutes and scrub some more for safety. When in doubt, if a dish, pot, or pan won’t come clean, cut your losses and throw it out – especially rubber or wooden dishes that absorb smoke.

EWWWWWWW . . . IS THAT MOLD

4/17/2019 (Permalink)

Let us help you get rid of mold and odor. "Like it never even happened."

Certain things shouldn’t be allowed to grow, Mold is one of them.

Not all Molds are created equal

Mold and fungi naturally grow and are part of our environment. Over 100,000 different strands have been found to exist. Certain fungi and molds are useful and even help in the preparation of certain things. For example, Blue Cheese contains a certain mold which helps to give it that peculiar taste we all love and enjoy. If it weren’t for mold, we wouldn’t have the bacteria fighting Penicillin we all need and want when sick. And while certain molds and fungi may add value to our lives, other molds may be harmful and dangerous, especially if allowed to grow and spread in your home.

Mold growth inside your home can be the result of excessive water intrusion or damage not properly handled.

Most water intrusions are the result of storm damage, flooding, plumbing, standing leaks, and poor control of humidity inside the home. Areas that containing moisture and for a long period of time are more likely to have mold. Improper drying and handling of the situation can result in the growth and spread of mold. And while most mold may be visible, mold may also exist in areas not visible to the eye, making this all the more serious since its harder to detect.

The growth of mold in your home may have negative effects on your health.

Among those most affected are:

  • Pregnant woman.
  • Infants & children.
  • The elderly.
  • People with compromised respiratory systems.
  • People with weak immune systems.

Don’t allow Mold to Grow! If you suspect that your home or business may have mold, Contact us immediately at (951) 922-2900

In the Meantime:

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning for mold remediation services.
