Become Familiar With How Materials Burn in Yuma During a Fire

Fire Damage Become Familiar With How Materials Burn in Yuma During a Fire After a fire on your property, contact SERVPRO for effective remediation services and great results.

How Understanding the Theory of Fire Helps During Fire Damage Restoration in Yuma 

We hope you are at an advanced stage of learning how to handle disasters such as fire damage this National Preparedness Month (NPM). It is all about knowing that disasters are inevitable, and when they happen, we have to act correctly to prevent additional damage and restore our properties to their preloss state. Some of the essential things that all Yuma residents should be aware of include: making and practicing the developed plan, learning lifesaving skills, checking your coverage, and saving for emergencies.
 
To effectively restore your property after a fire damage experience in Yuma, you need to work with professionals who have a good understanding of the theory of fire. Our SERVPRO technicians understand the impact that smoke, fire, and heat have on your property during combustion. Knowing how the various smoke components behave during a fire helps us to determine what is salvageable and if necessary to explain to customers and insurance adjusters the procedures we perform during the restoration process.
 
As materials burn, they break down and combine with oxygen, and the process gives off heat. For combustion to take place, heat, oxygen and the material to burn should be present. When the three have a perfect balance, no residues can result. So, it means smoke and soot residues form when there is incomplete combustion, as a result of the components not being in balance. Though the gaseous component of smoke is invisible, it is the small particles of carbon - unburned materials - that get suspended in the air and make it visible.
 
Soot is the smoke which has settled on surfaces, and it can form different types of acids once it combines with the air's humidity or the fire-extinguishing liquids. Some materials can corrode or discolor when they get in touch with acidic soot residues. Our SERVPRO technicians also understand that such a mixture can form unpleasant odors and compromise the quality of air. By using thermal foggers and ULV foggers, we can perform deodorization to neutralize the odor-causing agents.
 
SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City can help you control soot, smoke, and related damages after a fire damage event. Call us at (760) 337-5858 and learn more about our commercial and residential restoration services.

Commercial Water Cleanup In Imperial

Commercial Commercial Water Cleanup In Imperial If you need emergency water cleanup or any other kind of disaster restoration for your property, you can always count on our crew.

Commercial Water Cleanup

One of the most stressful things for your Imperial business is getting posed with an emergency situation that requires immediate attention before structural damages or product damage could occur. Your retail location is not designed to withstand water incidents, even in the lesser traveled areas of the building. With records and stock throughout the showroom and back areas of the store, getting water cleaned up quickly and correctly has to happen right away.

Among the most troubling elements of water damage to your Imperial retail location is the substantial damage that it can ultimately cause to construction materials and fixtures throughout the facility. Elements like tables and desks used for cash registers or clothing displays can become saturated and warp or degrade even after an inadequate cleaning job by employees or custodial staff.

More to the point, cleanup jobs that our SERVPRO technicians take on often hinder the business’s ability to remain open to their customers. Whether it is a safety concern or something of an aesthetic eyesore, a business owner calls us to come out because the problem needs to get taken care of immediately. A rapid response from our emergency team can help to limit some of these effects mentioned above and help to make the entire restoration more efficient.

Another thing that you should consider when it comes to choosing professional restoration from our SERVPRO team for water cleanup is the effect a lingering situation has on not only your profits but also the employees that depend on their jobs. The longer that your facility is closed off to customers, the longer that individual members of your staff are without gainful employment.

Sometimes one of the hardest choices that a business owner has to make is determining when a situation is out of their control and best left to the professionals to restore or recover. If you need emergency water cleanup or any other kind of disaster restoration for your property, you can always count on our crew at SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City technicians to get the job done right.

Fire Damage Fire Loss Cleanup and Restoration Services for the Yuma Area Yuma and the Surrounding Area Rely on SERVPRO for Fire Damage Cleanup and Help

The SERVPRO Green Fleet Ranges to the Yuma Vicinity for Fire Emergency Mitigation Services

Restoration jobs that require rebuilding are generally done in two basic phases: mitigation and reconstruction.  In the mitigation phase, all non-salvageable materials are demolished, and contents are removed and cleared away. The salvageable building elements and contents are cleaned and restored by repairing, sanding, cleaning and deodorizing.

The Before and After Photo depicts a sunroom in Yuma, not far from El Centrol, that was severely damaged by a house fire.  The sunroom was an add-on, built by enclosing a covered patio. As you can see, the damage spread to other rooms within the structure.

The hole in the drywall ceiling in the top left of the Before Photo is where firefighters penetrated through to help vent away heat and smoke, and to check for any fire or embers burning in other sections of the attic. Drywall, not burnt by the flames, with only smoke or soot damage, can normally be restored. However, when it has been damaged as illustrated or exposed to high heat and flames, it must be replaced.  Stucco, which is the concrete-based wall coating in this sunroom, can often endure extreme heat without significant damage since it is not flammable. In this case, the stucco walls sustained only minor soot and smoke damage which SERVPRO FST fire and smoke damage technicians can wipe down, and then deodorize and repaint the rough surface. This rehabilitation is a step not yet taken under the general contractor rebuilds the structure.

The lighting, ceiling fan, and other fixtures must be removed for the cleaning and repairs. Lighting fixtures can be cleaned and reinstalled if not damaged by heat and it is cost-effective. We strive to restore and not replace building materials, fixtures, and other items whenever possible. Antique or custom lighting fixtures, or other fixtures and contents of particular importance to our customer, are removed and usually taken off-site to be cleaned, rewired or otherwise restored and then reinstalled when construction is complete.

Our objective is to ensure that our clients are satisfied with the fire damage cleanup and restoration, that lingering smoke odors have been neutralized, and we have preserved their possessions as much as possible. The lower After Photo shows post-mitigation, and at this point, the home is ready for repairs and reconstruction to begin.

Our SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City technicians have the skills and the equipment stocked in our Green Fleet which is always ready, at a moments notice, to travel to a fire-loss emergency in Yuma and the surrounding areas. (760) 337-5858

Professional Water Cleanup in Brawley

8/5/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Professional Water Cleanup in Brawley After flooding caused by your washing machine, it is best to call in the professional technicians at SERVPRO to remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Technicians are Ready to Help Dry Out a Water Damage Emergency Regardless of the Source

You do not realize how much you depend on the integrity of the plumbing and appliances in your Brawley home until you suffer from a significant leak or pipe breakage. The loosening of a wax seal on a toilet, break in a supply line to a kitchen or bathroom sink, or a broken washing machine pump or hose can spell disaster, especially if it happens when you are away from home at work or traveling. We are committed to delivering expert help to you fast.
 
Water cleanup in Brawley is not a do-it-yourself task when hundreds or even thousands of gallons escape from a burst pipe or malfunctioning appliance. A shop vac might be able to suck up an accidental spill, but when the water continues to pour through the plumbing or out of the appliance, it cannot accomplish the job. Our business exists in part to help members of our community recover from unexpected water catastrophes. Investments in high-efficiency equipment and well-trained technicians support our efforts to deliver these services.
 
When we arrive, expect us to locate and turn off the water supply immediately if you have not already done so. The SERVPRO crew chief then assesses the extent of the water incursion, determining which spaces in your home need water removal and structural drying. We often suggest a pack out of belongings in the water-saturated areas, inventorying and relocating these items to a dry area on your property or at our production facility for thorough review away from the water cleanup activity in your home.
 
SERVPRO service vehicles are packed with submersible pumps, water extractors, and a range of drying equipment so the project can proceed without delay. If the electricity is disconnected because of safety concerns, our trucks carry portable power generators so we can commence and complete water removal. Our employees ensure all cavities and recesses are scanned for trapped water as we work because any lingering moisture can cause progressive deterioration of building materials and expose your dwelling to the risk of mold growth.
 
After the majority of the water is eliminated, SERVPRO employees use their IICRC training in drying science to take moisture measurements to determine drying goals. Air movers, dehumidifiers, and heat team up to create the optimum environment for rapid evaporation of water from structural components and fixtures.
 
SERVPRO of El Centro / Salton City has the technicians and high-efficiency equipment to quickly and thoroughly clean up a water emergency at your home. Call our office 24/7 at (760) 337-5858 to set up an inspection and begin planning for water removal as soon as possible.
