Smoke and Soot Damage in your Home?

9/22/2020 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very 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.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • 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 West Evansville 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.

Do you have an Emergency Kit Ready?

7/21/2020 (Permalink)

Most of us here at SERVPRO of West Evansville do have an emergency kit..but we were surprised to find out that most people don't!

Did you know that 51.5% of US homes have the recommended emergency kit in their home or car. Even less have food stored up for an emergency. 

The American Red Cross encourages that each household and car have a preparedness kit. It is always better to be more prepared than less prepared. Many people from our team learned this during the break out of COVID-19.

The top items in an emergency kit should be:  

  1. water
  2. canned food
  3. can opener
  4. flashlights
  5. batteries
  6. enough food and water for each person in your household for 5 days.

Be on the look out for our preparedness tips and tricks coming this September, and as always, if you have damage after a storm, give SERVPRO of West Evansville a call. We are here to help with roof tarps, new roofs, and new siding! 

Have you had a Fire in your Evansville Indiana Home?

7/16/2020 (Permalink)

Most people have heard that you should document all of the items in your home. But very few people do it. The reason is for insurance purposes. If you were to have a fire, you would have pictures and documentation on your items. It would be extremely challenging to try and remember every single item you have in your home. 

As homeowners we put a lot of sentimental value on our personal items. After a major fire damage the thought of replacing everything you love can be overwhelming. SERVPRO of West Evansville has the training to restore your personal items instead of replacing them. But what can you do until help arrives?

Here are some tips on how you can help after a fire damage.

- Limit movement in the house to prevent soot particles from spreading and causing additional damage.

- DO NOT wash any walls or painted services.

- DO NOT shampoo carpet or upholstery.

- DO NOT send clothing to a dry cleaner. With fire damage certain steps need to be taken to ensure that smoke odor does not set into clothing.

The first 48 hours after a fire damage can make the difference in restoring your items and replacing them. Call SERVPRO of West Evansville to help with your fire damage. We can't wait to serve you!

What is Water Mitigation?

7/4/2020 (Permalink)

There are some technical terms we use here at SERVPRO of West Evansville that many people might not know. We are quick to use these words with each other but sometimes forget to slow down and explain them to our customers! We want everyone we work with to know and understand exactly what we are doing in their home. Honestly, it's a science. But we are always happy to explain it! One of those words are mitigating water. Check out the process below :

Water mitigation is the process of reducing or preventing the amount of water damage that happens after a flood, a leaking roof or any number of water-related reasons.

Mitigation enables people to recover more quickly from a disaster.

Mitigation lessens the financial impact of disasters. 

As mitigation specialists, SERVPRO of West Evansville focuses on reducing loss, enabling quick recoveries and lessening costs involved with restoration of property damage events.

Give SERVPRO of West Evansville 812-465-2500 a call to have water in your home mitigated! 

Who do you Speak with After Hours? The Owners.

6/29/2020 (Permalink)

Did you know you are speaking with one of the four owners when you call our number after hours? You do! We love speaking with you.

As always, we are here to help you, and taking the initial phone call means the world to us. 

The moment the phone rings, we are preparing to speak with someone on the other line that has just experienced possibly one of the worst catastrophes of their life. The owners don't believe that an answering service will do justice for what the customer deserves. The customer deserve to speak with someone that understands what the next steps are. They also deserve peace of mind in such a horrible situation.

Emergencies do not always happen during "work hours" which means one of the four owners is answering the phone at 2:00am if that is when the disaster occurs. 

We started this business eight years ago and our purpose was and always has been to serve others and serve them well. 

Call SERVPRO of West Evansville today, we are here to help and we are ready for any disaster that come your way.
