For large loss incidents that burst pipes can often become, we typically require our portable sump pumps or gas-powered pumps to remove higher volumes of standing water quickly. Faster extraction of standing water increases the salvageability of flooring and walls.

Unfortunately, throughout this mitigation and restoration process, it is unlikely that you can continue to serve your customers. Our SERVPRO team works quickly to get the mess cleaned up, and the area dried, to ensure that you can get your doors back open.

Water Damage Is Your Refrigerator Causing You Water Damage Problems? SERVPRO Has A Solution Don't let broken appliances be the reason your home suffers water damage.

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.

Fire Damage Important Safety Tips To Avoid A Fire In Your Grand Junction Kitchen Fire safety in the kitchen is essential to avoid a fire!

Fire Safety In Your Kitchen And Avoiding The Need For Fire Cleanup In Your Grand Junction Home

Everyone has a busy life, with pets and kids running all over your Grand Junction home and meals to make and prepare. It is all too easy sometimes to wander off while the stove is on and there is an open flame. However, this is a recipe for fire.

Fire safety in the kitchen is essential to avoid a fire and the need for fire damage cleanup in your Grand Junction home. When a fire does occur, or professionally trained staff at SERVPRO are ready to help you any time you need.

The first thing to staying safe in your kitchen is to stay nearby. Whether you are using the oven or the stove, anything close to a heating element can be a potential fire hazard. If you have to step out of the kitchen for any reason, it is better to turn the fire off. Even when the burner is off, there is still heat emanating, so remove any pans or pots so you can prevent the most common kind of kitchen fire. SERVPRO techs can clean up the damage from a fire in your kitchen, including smoke, soot, and odors.

Anyone who isn’t directly involved in assisting you in cooking needs to stay out of the kitchen. If you let too many people in, it can cause a massive distraction for you, or a child could easily hurt themselves if you cannot look after them. Even a curious pet walking by the stove could try to sneak a bite of the meal you are cooking.

Setting a timer is also a good rule of thumb. No matter if you use the oven timer or on an electronic device like your phone or a smartwatch, it is an excellent way to remember to come and check on the cooking at specified intervals so you can do something else for a few minutes before the timer goes off. It also avoids you burning or overcooking whatever you are making.

You need a fire extinguisher handy in the kitchen, as well as one in the garage and laundry room. If you have more than one kitchen space, you should equip each one of them with an extinguisher in case of an unexpected fire.

SERVPRO of Grand Junction is always ready to assist you if a fire does break out in your home in Fruita, Loma, or Whitewater. Give our skilled technicians a call as soon as the fire is out at (970) 241-8181 so we can help return your home and get it back to the way it was before the fire.

Water Damage When Odors Plague Your Water Damaged Home In Grand Junction You Need Help From Our Team SERVPRO of Grand Junction understands that even after the water damage cleanup, your home may still have lingering odors

Water Damage Remediation And Deodorization For Your Grand Junction Home

A leaky kitchen sink in your Grand Junction home can create some big problems for you to deal with it. If the sink has been leaking underneath and hidden for some time, you have damage to the structure of the cabinet that it sits in, besides the cleanup of the water and moisture. There can also be mold growth and odor.

Water damage remediation for your Grand Junction residence needs to be done promptly. You can prevent additional damage if you call us at SERVPRO as soon as you discover the problem, as we arrive quickly once you alert us to your situation.

Once we have cleaned up the water mess and restored any damage, we address any odors that may be present due to the water leak. Sometimes, SERVPRO technicians need to use multiple deodorization methods to get rid of all the odors.

One method that could be used underneath your sink cabinet is direct spraying. Powered or hand pump sprayers are used to pump products onto the area affected. With water damage, direct spraying is usually used to apply disinfectants. Since this method wets the surface being treated, we use this method where discoloration is not likely, or it does not matter.

With wet fogging, solvent and water-based deodorizers can be dispensed by ULV, or ultra-low volume foggers, which generate little deodorant or particles. The particles penetrate most areas where odor particles hide.

A high-velocity exhaust fan can also be used so we can ventilate your structure both before and after deodorization. These high-velocity fans quickly ventilate buildings and shorten the length of time needed before allowing you to return to your home as usual after the deodorization.

Air scrubbers remove airborne particles, plus chemicals and odors from the air. The device draws the dirty air through several filters, capturing odors and particles, and then puts out clean air back into your home.

SERVPRO of Grand Junction understands that even after the water damage cleanup, your home in Fruita, Loma, or Mesa may still have lingering odors. So, when you call us at (970) 241-8181, you can be sure that deodorization is part of our usual process so that your home is restored to its previous state.

How a Leaking Dishwasher Causes Water Damage to Your Mesa Home

12/17/2018 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO How a Leaking Dishwasher Causes Water Damage to Your Mesa Home Malfunctioning dishwashers are one the biggest causes of water damage in homes.

Water Removal Cleanup for Your Mesa Home

When your home in Mesa has experienced a water damage emergency from a malfunctioning dishwasher, you could have several gallons of water sitting in your kitchen. The issue needs to be addressed right away to prevent additional damages. Water damages become irreparable to the flooring, cabinets, and your structure itself the longer it sits.  

Professional water removal services are needed for Mesa right away. Our staff at SERVPRO work quickly to get to your residence as quickly as possible after you contact us. We have the experience and the equipment to dry your home back out and get your life back to normal. It is easy to see in a situation like this why SERVPRO is the first choice in water damage restoration.  

Since the water emergency happened in your kitchen, SERVPRO technicians inspect the flooring and the subflooring for damage, as well as the surrounding cabinets around the dishwasher. Grouted joints and ceramic tile are usually waterproofed when installed over plywood. However, any cracks make the tile vulnerable to water damage. Many times, the tile is unaffected, but water can penetrate the grouting, creating warping or expansion of the floor. The tiles break apart at the joints and come loose because of this.  

Plus, in the case of a dishwasher malfunction, the water is likely coming up from underneath the tile, causing the subflooring to swell and the tiles to crack.  We replace or reinstall the tiles once we dry the subfloor and repair it. It might be necessary to dry the floor form the bottom or drill holes into the floor so we can adequately monitor the drying process. We use a nonpenetrating moisture meter to detect moisture underneath the ceramic tiles. The dishwasher itself is also carefully moved so we can dry out underneath it.  

SERVPRO of Grand Junction understands the effects of water on subflooring and ceramic tiles when your home in Palisade, Redlands, or Mesa has a water damage emergency. Give us a call as soon as you realize there is a problem at (970) 241-8181, so we can restore your home fast.
