The Science of Drying

Water Damage The Science of Drying When fire and water take control of your life, we help you take it back. Our goal is to make it..."Like it never even happened."

Psychrometry is the study of the air and its properties.  The properties of temperature, humidity, vapor pressure and dew point are measured to evaluate air conditions in the structure, enabling SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals to create the proper atmosphere for more efficient drying. 

Water can damage materials in two ways: first, by absorption through direct contact with water; and second, absorption of moisture from the air. Measuring the moisture content of the air is critical to the drying process. 

SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals establish an environment favorable for drying. They also understand how to manipulate temperature and humidity levels to produce optimum drying conditions with state of the art detection equipment, without causing secondary damages through improper drying processes. 

When fire and water take control of your life, we help you take it back. Our goal is to make it..."Like it never even happened."

April snowstorm hits the Madison, WI area with 7.2 inches of snow

Storm Damage April snowstorm hits the Madison, WI area with 7.2 inches of snow Should you experience water damage from the snow melting this week, call SERVPRO of Dane County West. #608-497-3331

Biggest storm of the season hits Madison, WI. 

From Wisconsin State Journal:

If April showers bring May flowers, what do April snowstorms bring?

The biggest snowstorm of the snow season dumped a record 7.2 inches of snow on Madison Wednesday, but that very likely will be the last snow we see in this very unusual spring.

The heaviest snow fell in a narrow band from Wisconsin Dells to West Bend, with the Dells getting almost 8 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service.

The snow, combined with rain and sleet, made for harrowing driving conditions during the Wednesday evening commute, with crashes and slide offs reported throughout south-central Wisconsin.

The state highway travel map shows slippery stretches throughout southern Wisconsin Thursday morning, but roads were in fairly good shape for the commute.

About 30 school districts and private schools were opening later than usual Thursday morning, and the Wisconsin Dells School District cancelled classes for the day.

Besides setting a record for April 18 snowfall in Madison, another record was set when the thermometer only got up to 33 degrees, making it the coldest high temperature on April 18 in the capital city, the Weather Service said.

A total of 13.5 inches of snow has fallen this April at the Dane County Regional Airport, the official weather site in Madison. That's the second highest snowfall on record for the month, the record being 17.4 inches in 1973.

With the snow finally moving on, we should see a pretty good stretch of weather, with no snow in the extended forecast.

27 Storm Track meteorologist Guy Brown said sunshine and warmer temperatures are forecast through Monday, with highs of 43 on Thursday, 51 on Friday, 57 on Saturday, 58 on Sunday and 62 on Monday.

The Weather Service said there's a slight chance of rain showers Tuesday and Wednesday, with highs of 62 and 55, respectively.

Brown said it could be colder next Thursday at 48, under mostly to partly sunny skies.

Wednesday's high of 33 was a record coldest high, 26 degrees below normal and 54 degrees below the record high of 87 for April 18, set in 1977.

The low was 27, 10 degrees below normal and 9 degrees above the record low of 18 for the date, set in 1983.

The mixed precipitation totaled 0.77 inches at the airport, bringing the April precipitation (rain and melted snow) total up to 2.12 inches, 0.10 inches above normal.

The record precipitation total on April 18 was 2.15 inches in 1880.

For the meteorological spring (March through May), Madison has received 2.86 inches of precipitation, 1.36 inches below normal.

Since Jan. 1, Madison has received 7.04 inches of precipitation, 0.14 inches above normal.

The record 7.2 inches of snow smashed the old record of 3.4 inches for April 18, set in 1912.

Madison has received 13.5 inches of snow this month, 11.5 inches above normal; 16.9 inches for spring, 7.9 inches above normal; and 44.4 inches for the snow season (July to June), 5.7 inches below normal.

Floods are one of the most common and widespread natural disasters in the United States. Recently in Monticello, WI, SERVPRO of Dane County West was called to a local café to mitigate extensive water damage from flood damage caused by the Sugar River overflow.  The café was next door to the river and despite having a 5-foot berm protecting the structure, water unfortunately still got in.  Up to 8 feet of water flooded their business and SERVPRO of Dane County West is diligently working “to make it like it never even happened”.

https://www.channel3000.com/news/flooding-at-little-sugar-river-leaves-monticello-underwater/704893013

Fema.gov reports in the last 5 years, all 50 states have experienced floods or flash ?oods. Just because you haven’t experienced a ?ood in the past does not mean you won’t in the future. In fact, nearly 20% of all flood insurance claims come from moderate-to-low risk areas.

According to the American Red Cross, floods cause more damage in the U.S. every year than any other Weather-related disaster. The American Red Cross offers the following ?ood safety tips.

  • Stay away from ?oodwaters. If you come up on a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, stop, turn around, and go another way. Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet.
  • If you approach a flooded road while driving, turn around and go another way. If you are caught on a flooded road and waters are s rising rapidly around you, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground. Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.
  • Keep children out or the water. They are curious and often lack judgment about running water or contaminated water.

If a flood does strike your home or business, contact your local SERVPRO of Dane County Professionals. Even minor ?oods have the potential to cause major damage to a structure when not treated quickly and properly, and the cleanup is often an overwhelming task. The SERVPRO System is prepared to handle any sized disaster. When ?re and water take control of your life, your local SERVPRO of Dane County Professionals will help you take it back.

Using the Correct Monitoring Tools makes a difference

Water Damage Using the Correct Monitoring Tools makes a difference #SERVPROdanecountywest #SERVPROdcw #spdcw #SERVPROdaneco #24houremergencyservice #restoration #firedamage #cleanup #waterdamage #mold #rebuild #servep

Using the correct equipment makes a measurable difference when determining the extent of damage and proper mitigation needed in a water or fire loss. SERVPRO of Dane County West professionals use sophisticated measuring tools to survey the situation then use the proper mitigation equipment to make it “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO of Dane County West  professionals use these tools:

  • Moisture Sensors accurately test drywall, flooring, subflooring, carpet, insulation and any material that may have come in contact with excessive moisture.
  • Moisture Meters are used to measure the percentage of water in a given substance. This information can be used to determine if the material is ready for use, unexpectedly wet, or otherwise in need of further inspection. The moisture meter provides accurate readings, enabling SERVPRO of Dane County West professionals to accurately monitor the drying process.
  • Thermohygrometers measure temperature and relative humidity. When armed with this information, SERVPRO Dane County West can calculate and create an environment most conclusive to drying. When facing a contaminated water loss, it is not only important to dry the structure, but the structure must also be disinfected and often deodorized.
  • Ultra Low-Volume (ULV) Foggers will atomize liquid deodorizing agents, producing a fine mist that can easily penetrate the site where odor-causing residues may accumulate. This device can also be used to inject fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other hard-to-reach areas.
  • Thermal Foggers dispense solvent-based products by creating a dense fog. The fog consists of tiny particles of deodorant solution that attach to and neutralize odor-causing particles. 

The bottom line?

Your local SERVPRO® Franchise Professionals have the training and equipment to help make it "Like it never even happened."

Why Are Frozen Pipes Dangerous?

Water Damage Why Are Frozen Pipes Dangerous? #SERVPROdanecountywest #SERVPROdcw #spdcw #SERVPROdaneco #24houremergencyservice #restoration #firedamage #cleanup #waterdamage #mold #rebuild #servep

When the temperatures drop, one major issue that could come up is a frozen water pipe and it’s potential to bust, leading to flooding and water damage in your commercial or residential property. Learn why frozen pipes are so dangerous, the types of pipes that are most vulnerable to freezing and four signs that a pipe is actually frozen.

Why Are Frozen Pipes Dangerous?

Frozen pipes are a problem for a couple of reasons.

They can create an inconvenience but, more seriously, can cause major damage to your property.

  • Lack of Running Water– The most obvious danger of a frozen pipe is the inability to access running water. This can interfere with your ability to do everyday tasks such as washing the dishes or taking a shower.
  •  Potential to Burst- The second problem that can occur when a pipe freezes is that the pipe actually bursts. Once the actual water in the pipe freezes, pressure is created between the closed faucet and the blockage that can build up to a point that causes the pipe to explode and extensive water damage to your property can occur.

Pipes That Are Vulnerable to Freezing

There are some pipes that are more vulnerable to freezing than others:

  • Exterior Walls- Water pipes that are located along the exterior walls of a home can be vulnerable to freezing. This is because they may not have the adequate amount of insultation protecting them from the exterior temperatures.
     
  • Attics and Basements- Pipes that are located in attics or in basements may also have a greater tendency to freeze. These pipes may not receive the same amount of heat as the rest of the property. If these areas are not used as living space, they also may not be properly insulated.

4 Signs of Frozen Pipes

There are a few clues which can help you determine if you have frozen pipes at your property:

  • The Temperature Is Right- Pipes cannot freeze if it is not cold enough outside for them to do so. Water does not freeze when it is 60 degrees Fahrenheit outside, and neither do pipes. When the temperature falls to 32 degrees Fahrenheit or lower, you should begin to take precautions to prevent vulnerable pipes from freezing.  
     
  • There Is Frost on the Pipe- For pipes that can actively be seen, such as those under sinks, you may be able to see frost that has accumulated on the exterior of the pipe. This can serve as a warning sign that the pipe is frozen before you ever try to turn on the faucet.
     
  • No Water Is Coming Out of the Faucet- Another sign that you may have a frozen pipe on your hands is lack of running water. If you or a tenant turn on a kitchen or bathroom faucet and only a slight trickle of water or no water at all comes out, the water pipe leading to the faucet may be frozen.
  • Strange Smells- A forth potential sign of a blocked pipe is an odd smell coming from a faucet or drain. If the pipe is partially or completely blocked, the only way the odor can escape is back up in the direction of your property.

Act Quickly

Once you are aware that a pipe is frozen, you must act quickly to thaw the pipe. Depending on the location of the pipe and your level of expertise, you can attempt to thaw the pipe yourself or you can contact a licensed plumber to thaw the pipe for you. It is imperative to thaw the pipe as soon as possible, because it has the potential to burst and cause extensive damage to your property.

If a frozen water pipe bursts and you experience flooding, turn off your water shut-off valve to prevent further water damage. Contact a professional water restoration company, such as SERVPRO of Dane County West, to extract and mitigate the water loss and restore your property to it’s preloss damage.

Have Storm, Ice or Flood Damage?

2/8/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Have Storm, Ice or Flood Damage? have storm, ice or flood damage? SERVPRO of Dane County West is available 24/7/365 for emergency storm damage services. #SERVPROdanecountywest

If you live in an area that has recently experienced storm damage, wind damage, hail damage, ice damage, frozen pipes that busted, or river flooding you aren't alone. Many homeowners experience storm damage at some point, and while it's a stressful experience, there are several things you can do to minimize storm damage to your home and to quickly perform storm restoration after sustained damage.  Here's what you need to know.

Types of Storm Damage

Windstorms, micro-bursts and tornado damage can cause a roof leak, standing ground water, and intense flooding. If you have storm damage in your area, make sure you check for roof damage and a roof leak. You may notice flooding and ground water in your home.  The evidence of a roof leak could be more discreet and may present itself as stains on your ceiling. A roof leak is something you shouldn't ignore. Always contact a professional as soon as you realize you may need a roof repair.

Hail damage may also require a roof repair. Roof damage can occur when hail hits your roof during a particularly bad storm. In addition to a roof repair, hail damage can require siding repair for your home, as well. Hail damage can present immediately after a storm and may be accompanied by ice and wind damage.

Flooding is a major issue that can lead to extensive water damage. Flooding can occur after a severe storm, when you have frozen pipes break and when a sump-pump fails. These can create standing flood water in your home and if this water isn't properly extracted, it can lead to other issues in your home, including mold growth. 

River flooding also can impact both the interior and exterior of your home and also requires water restoration. River flooding occurs after periods of extreme rain and lead to ground water standing outside of your home, as well as possibly flood water inside your home. 

Finally, ice damage can occur from Ice dams. Typically, an ice dam forms near or in your gutters. An ice dam can cause incredible damage to your home. While most homeowners are concerned about frozen pipes, not all realize just how much ice damage can occur with ice damming. If you notice an ice dam beginning to form, don't wait to get help for it.

Steps of Storm Damage Repair

Whether you have frozen pipes that busted, hail damage, ice damage, or flooding, water restoration is an essential part of storm remediation. SERVPRO of Dane County West will work with you to restore your house to it's preloss condition. The goal is to fix your home as quickly and efficiently as possible so you can continue living your life after storm damage occurs.

Storm and flood damage require specialized restoration techniques and equipment. When a storm hits your Madison home, you need the company with storm damage experience and expertise.

SERVPRO of Dane County West can respond immediately to storm and flooding conditions.

  • Faster to Any Size Disaster

SERVPRO of Dane County West Uses Advanced Industrial Equipment for all Restoration Jobs

Water Damage SERVPRO of Dane County West Uses Advanced Industrial Equipment for all Restoration Jobs #SERVPROdanecountywest #SERVPROdcw #spdcw #SERVPROdaneco #24houremergencyservice #restoration #firedamage #cleanup #waterdamage #mold #rebuild #servep

When your home or commercial property has water damage from flooding or leaks, we have the expertise and equipment to properly restore your property. Our experience and scientific approach to water removal and water cleanup enable us to properly dry and restore your property.

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. You can click on any of the steps below to learn more about that process.

Step 1 - Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources. 24/7/365 #608-497-3331

Step 2 - Inspection and Water Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage. We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

Proper equipment makes a measurable difference in reducing the damage expense during a fire or water loss. When time matters, technology and equipment must be counted on to perform. Your SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals will answer your call with rapid action and a full arsenal of drying equipment. 

Here are a few tools used by SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals for Water Damage Assessment:

  • Moisture Sensors are used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards, and walls.
  • Moisture Meters are used to determine the actual moisture content of various materials. The moisture tester provides accurate readings, allowing SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge professionals to monitor drying process.
  • Thermohygrometers measure temperature and relative humidity. When armed with this information, SERVPRO of East Baton Rouge professionals can calculate and create an environment most conducive to drying. When facing a contaminated water loss, it is not only important to dry the structure, but the structure must also be disinfected and often deodorized. 
  • Ultra Low-Volume (ULV) Foggers will atomize liquid deodorizing agents, producing a fine mist that can easily penetrate the site where odor-causing residues may accumulate. This device can also be used to inject fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other hard-to-reach areas.
  • Thermal Foggers dispense solvent-based products by creating a dense fog. The fog consists of tiny particles of deodorant solution that attach to and neutralize odor-causing particles. 

Step 3 - Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property, which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

SERVPRO of Dane County West's highly trained technicians will begin the water removal process almost immediately. Depending on the amount of water, they may use powerful submersible pumps in addition to industrial strength, wet/dry high-volume Extractors, like the one shown in this picture. This step helps to reduce drying time and helps to prevent mold and secondary water damage.

  • Remove Excess Water
  • Use Submersible Pumps and Industrial Wet/Dry High-Volume Extractors (HVE) can be portable or truck-mounted. The former can be taken into the building and allows access to hard-to-reach areas, but the latter is more powerful and has its own power sources. Truck-mounted extractors are designed for both restorative cleaning and water removal in a water damage scenario.
  • At SERVPRO, we have a team of highly trained, IICRC-certified technicians who can relieve you of that stress.

Step 4 - Drying and Dehumidification

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water that is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.

SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.

Advanced Industry-Standard Drying Equipment

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture. The industrial-grade dehumidifiers SERVPRO of Dane County Uses can remove hundreds of pints of water per day depending on the room’s relative humidity.
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air.
  • High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which cause moisture to evaporate at a faster pace.

Step 5 - Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean all of the restorable items and structures damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. Our professionals are trained to provide sanitizing treatments and to remove odors and deodorize your property.

Step 6 - Restoration

Restoration is the process of restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet, or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

After protecting and securing the structure, professionals at SERVPRO of Dane County West can begin the restoration process. Your home or business may need reconstruction work to get your property back to its preloss condition.

The professionals at SERVPRO of Dane County West can simplify the restoration process by handling both the initial damage mitigation and rebuilding the affected areas. Having one qualified company for the entire process can save time and keeps costs low.

Protein Fire Mitigation in Monroe, WI

1/25/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Protein Fire Mitigation in Monroe, WI Service Technicians, Brandon and Keegan, removing soot from ceiling and furniture.

A protein fire is smoke damage resulting from the extreme burn of a protein enriched fibre. Most common protein fires are from burnt food. SERVPRO of Dane County West was recently at one of these types of fire in Monroe, WI. Turkey stock was accidentally left on the range and unfortunately burnt down to a crisp. Thankfully, the fire was contained in the pot on the stove and the home did not suffer a full-blown fire loss. Unfortunately, protein fires leave a caustic smell behind and every surface of their home had to be cleaned and treated.

At first glance, protein fires do not appear to cause any damage to your home and contents. However, the aftermath of a protein fire is an invisible and often sticky, foul smelling residue that coats the many surfaces throughout your home.

SERVPRO of Dane County West has the technology, training and experience to mitigate various types of smoke damage. Our trained technicians use ozone treatments and thermal fogging to mitigate protein odor. An ozone treatment can deodorize, disinfect, and remove smoke particles in an indoor environment. Ozoneis formed in thegeneratorand dispersed in a room where it oxidizes organic smoke and odor particles. A thermal fogger emits a cloud of particles that are similar in composition to smoke then penetrate a structure's cracks, crevices and surface pores neutralizing any smoke particles they come in contact with.

If you have a kitchen fire and/or odor damage from burnt food and smoke damage, SERVPRO of Dane County West is here to help!
