Storm Damage SERVPRO Suggest Measures You Can Take to Mitigate the Initial Flooding Damage to Your Grand Junction Home Here Comes SERVPRO! Right on Time to Mitigate Storm Problems in Grand Junction

Get a Head Start on Flood Damage Recovery in Grand Junction

One of the most impactful ways you can help your home recover from flood damage is to contact a certified damage mitigation company like SERVPRO immediately after the accident to implement damage-preventing measures sooner and reduce total costs in the long run. Before we arrive, however, there are a few things you can do that save us time and can make the damage restoration process faster and less expensive. Try and complete some of these tasks before our technicians arrive to ensure optimal recovery from disaster.

Separate Furniture Items
Many of the most severe effects of flood damage in Grand Junction homes on furniture can be avoided by acting fast to separate materials from one another. While it may not be possible to prevent all moisture from reaching your furnishings, damage from color bleed and additional soaking can be prevented by placing barriers such as aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and the floor. Then, you can take things a step further by displacing cushions, sheets, and other removable elements and leaving them to dry separately.

Pick Up Scattered Objects
Objects left on flood-damaged floors can sustain additional damage if they remain in place. Picking these objects up and placing them somewhere dry can mean the difference between restoration and replacement for many types of belongings. Even water-resistant or inexpensive belongings should be picked up to reduce risks of falling and stumbling in a potentially dangerous flood-damaged area. But, always safety first.

Mop Up and Turn On A/C
SERVPRO technicians use advanced drying technologies to remove water from your home as fast as possible, but by starting the drying process early, you can prevent some of the most severe consequences of flood damage from happening. Mop up whatever moisture you can and activate the air conditioning in your home during the summer months to start removing moisture before we even get the chance to arrive at your home.

SERVPRO of Grand Junction stays ready on a 24/7 basis to help you recover from the effects of flood damage in your home. Call us at (970) 241-8181 for our emergency services.

Fire Damage Safety and Restoration in Your Grand Junction Home

A fire can be a costly disaster for any homeowner in Grand Junction. Luckily, fire-related injuries, deaths, and losses of property have gone down in recent years at least partially due to improved fire-fighting technology. It is essential your home is equipped with fire extinguishers, smoke detectors and a good plan of escape in case of a fire. However, knowing some common fire hazards that are lurking in your home is also necessary to keep you and your family safe.

A fire of any size can leave behind plenty of fire damage in your Grand Junction home. You need a professional to help you do the task correctly. At SERVPRO, our staff is trained and experienced to handle fire cleanup of all kinds. We also understand that time is of the essence after a fire so do not hesitate to call us for help.

The first hazard to be aware of is your stovetop or oven. You should never leave your cooking unattended. Cooking is the leading contributor to home fires, and you can drastically reduce your risk if you keep a close eye on your meal. Ensure you turn off your stovetop or oven when you are done as well. There are new stovetop monitors and sensors you can purchase which alert you when you’ve left your stove lit.

After a fire in your kitchen, there are structural components, such as cabinets, that SERVPRO staff needs to clean to restore your home, so it looks like it never happened. Our cleaning method for cabinets varies depending on if the surface is unfished or finished. If we need to, knobs and other hardware are removed so we can clean in recessed areas and crevices. The interiors of cabinets are usually unfinished wood. We remove residues with a dry cleaning sponge first. If any residues remain, we use denatured alcohol to avoid the smoke residues setting into the pores of the wood. Sanding may be required if residues are still there.

Other hazards in your home include dead smoke alarm batteries. Working smoke alarms are essential on every floor of your home and in every bedroom to cut the risk of danger during a fire. Space heaters pose another danger. Leaving these units unattended or too close to flammable materials like blankets or paper can create a fire in your home.

SERVPRO of Grand Junction can assist you in restoring your home in Mesa, Loma, or Grand Junction after fire damage of any size. Get in touch with us by dialing (970) 241-8181 as soon as the fire is out so we can help you return your life to normal.

Avoiding Staining And Secondary Damages With Water Damage In Grand Junction

Water migrates rapidly, moving from wet to dry in the process. For homeowners, this process can be a nightmare as water migrates beneath fittings, underneath carpets or even inside wall cavities and crawlspaces. Often, the most harmful aspect of this process only comes to light several weeks after the initial water issue in the form of mold or mildew growth which requires professional remediation and a lengthy service process.

Our company has a leading reputation for remediating water damage in Grand Junction. One of the reasons SERVPRO is a go-to provider is that we understand that removing moisture goes hand in hand with preventing unwanted microbial growth. Our technicians are mindful of secondary damages, working to both remediate and prevent simultaneously.

Most permanent staining of paintwork and possessions occurs when the affected area dries naturally. It is vital to act quickly in this circumstance by calling in a professional. The chances of preventing permanent staining are far higher when possessions are still wet, which is why SERVPRO promise to arrive on site within four hours of notification of loss.

Our cleaning methods employ a range of chemical agents to ensure we are kind to different types of materials while still being effective against stains. Using agitative cleaning methods, we can tackle staining before engaging the drying process to guard your home against secondary damages caused by moisture pockets or damp spots.

To dry a property effectively, we may need to access wall cavities as well as the gaps beneath fittings and carpets. Our team employs injectidry systems to establish an airflow inside cabinets and walls. Your SERVPRO technician can access these areas by drilling small holes and placing injector nozzles into the wall cavity. We can then blast hot air into the cavity thoroughly drying it from the inside out. Doing so prevents damp spots from residing and significantly reduces the chances of secondary damages.

Homeowners in Clifton need reliable assistance when leaks or seepage exposes your property to the risk of permanent damage. If the harm caused by water is ignored a broad range of issues arise.

Avoiding these serious consequences is why our number should be on your short list. 

Water damage in Clifton can seem like a minor inconvenience in your home. Treating it as such can be a tremendous mistake. Excess water can be devastating to both the structure and the contents of your dwelling. Many structural components are porous and absorb the moisture. They then lose strength and integrity.

Our ability to manage all aspects of residential water damage is why SERVPRO is the answer to your concerns. Our crews can remove the water and the residual moisture from the structure and fixtures in your home quickly and thoroughly. Often we do a pack out of water saturated possessions, cleaning and drying them using special techniques at our production facility. 

Experienced crew leaders assess the condition of your home, tracing the damage done back to the source. We devise a plan of action that our IICRC-trained crew members carry out without delay. Our service vehicles stock the pumps and extractors needed for standing water and moisture absorbed by floor coverings. Special drying mats suction water from multi-layers of hardwood and subfloors. Thermal imaging helps us locate hidden reserves of water behind structural components, and our training and experience lead us to strategies that removes even trapped water. The skills our workers master for using advanced moisture measuring devices, and specialized water removal systems underscore why SERVPRO delivers superior results. 

Drying the structure is the next task. Our technicians use their training to determine drying goals using moisture readings. Air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers do the work, but our experts create and adjust the configuration to get speedy results. A firm grasp of the components that go into the science of drying is why SERVPRO is the industry leader in our community.

Is Your Refrigerator Causing You Water Damage Problems? SERVPRO Has A Solution

Water Removal for a Leaky Refrigerator in Your Clifton Home

Any leak in your Clifton home can be a scary thing, especially since many times we do not even know there is water present until long after it begins. A broken refrigerator can go undetected since the fridge itself blocks your view of the floor and wall behind the unit. Unless there is a visible puddle, it can go unseen for a long time.

When this happens in your Clifton home, you could need water removal services from a professionally trained restoration company such as SERVPRO. If there is enough water to damage flooring and even leak down to a basement, you need help cleaning up the mess. Our staff has the experience and tools required to restore your home for you in an efficient and timely fashion.

SERVPRO techs can get rid of any standing water which is deep enough with a truck-mounted pump. Fans and dehumidifiers help us to dry the rest of the affected areas out so we can prevent further damage such as mold. If any drywall or flooring are damaged beyond repair, we remove these so they can be replaced with new materials.

If you find water leaking out from under your fridge, check the drain pan at the bottom of the unit to see if it is cracked or malfunctioning. It is normal for a bit of water to be present, but a significant amount with pooling underneath can mean the drain pan is not functioning as it should.

When that is not the issue, pull the fridge out from the wall and check the water supply line. It is one of the most common reasons for finding a significant amount of water on your kitchen floor. The water line is sometimes not leaking, but the connection of the line to the fridge is. Shut the water line off right away if you find it leaking. Other common causes of refrigerator water damage are ice maker condensation and leaks.

SERVPRO of Grand Junction is always available to help you clean up a refrigerator water leak in your kitchen in Palisade, Fruita, or Loma. Just make sure to reach out to us right away by dialing (970) 241-8181 so we can dry everything back out for you.

Once we have removed all we can, industrial fans and dehumidifiers help us to dry your structure back out.

Some common causes of dishwasher leaks include the dishwasher not being level, worn gaskets, a broken door, using the wrong dishwashing soap, or a defective dishwasher tub. You should also regularly check the water lines running to the dishwasher to check for wear.

SERVPRO of Grand Junction can help you dry your home in Fruita, Mesa, or Loma after a water damage emergency such as this. Give us a call at (970) 241-8181 right away so we can get the water up and dry your structure out before more damage can be done.
