Broken water pipes, overflowed sinks, bathtubs, and toilets can wreak havoc on a home. When unwanted water flows into your home or business, hardwood floors are often affected. If you experience water damage to your hardwood floors, we can often save them with our floor mat drying systems.

At SERVPRO of Dane County West, we utilize the latest in drying technologies to restore damaged materials instead of replacing them. Keeping existing hardwood floors and various other structures saves everyone time and money. One great example of this is the floor drying system seen in the picture above that we used to keep a customer's hardwood floors after a recent water loss in Middleton, WI.

Floor-drying mats use the power of a high-pressure blower to vacuum water vapor right up through the floor surface, replacing it with drier air. These drying mats are available in varying sizes that can be configured to fit rooms large and small. With one machine, we can dry multiple areas with much less intrusion than the traditional tenting method.

We were able to save their hardwood floors using our floor drying system. The customer was delighted they didn't need to spend thousands of dollars on replacing their floors!

Why take the risk? Call SERVPRO of Dane County West to help! #608-497-3331.Working to make it, "Like it never even happened."

Is Your Property Winter Ready?

Cold weather can have a significant impact on your home or business. Whether it is heavy rain, freezing temperatures, damaging winds, sleet, or snow, all can cause severe and costly property damage. While you cannot control the weather, you can take preventative steps to be better prepared.

To help prevent costly damages due to weather, consider taking the following precautions to protect your property before freezing weather hits.

  • Check your business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Weather, such as wind, heavy rain, ice, and snow, can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to the property and potentially cause personal injuries
  • Roofs, water pipes, and gutters should all be inspected to ensure they are in proper order. Direct gutter downspouts away from your building. Clear gutters of debris that may have gathered during the fall. Leaves and other obstructions can lead to a damming effect that can lead to roof damage and interior water problems.
  • Inspect property, especially walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate flood hazard potential.
  • Inspect all handrails, stairwells, and entryways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present.
  • Protect water pipes from freezing by allowing water to drip when temperatures dip below freezing. If pipes are under a cabinet, leave the cabinet doors open, allowing warm inside air to circulate the pipes. If the building has outdoor faucets, consider shutting the water off at the main valve in the basement or crawl space. Once the water valve is off, open the outdoor faucet to ensure it drains, preventing any remaining water from freezing in the pipe.
  • Ask SERVPRO of Dane County West about completing an Emergency READY Profile (ERP) for your business. The ERP is a no-cost assessment to your facility and provides you with a plan to get back in business fast following a disaster.

When winter strikes, call SERVPRO of Dane County West to strike back.

MOLD

From the Ordinary

Fungi and mold naturally occur in our environment. Over 100,000 kinds of fungi exist. Fungi produce some beneficial results. Yeast is a type of fungi used in preparing bread, baked goods, and other food products, including some alcoholic beverages. The unique flavor of blue cheese is a result of mold. An edible mushroom is simply a type of fungi, and lifesaving penicillin is a product of mold (Penicillin chrysogenum). 

Even though some forms of mold can add value to our lives, other types can be harmful. Exposure to these dangerous types may present health concerns for some people. 

The Unhealthy

The intrusion of water into your home or place of business can result in mold growth. Water intrusions can result from storm damage, plumbing or equipment failures, long-standing water leaks, and poor humidity control. When water intrusions are not taken care of right away, the resulting damage can present an increased risk of dangerous exposure in most environments. If the humidity and moisture levels in a water-damaged environment are not returned to normal, mold spores may grow and multiply. Organic materials found inside building, such as wood, paper, drywall, and insulation, provide food sources for mold to flourish. Excessive mold growth can lead to indoor environmental conditions that pose a health threat. 

Help Is Here

If you have a mold problem in your home or business, consider the following facts:

  • Significant mold growth can occur in 48-72 hours.
  • Mold may present a higher risk to children, the elderly, and anyone with respiratory problems.
  • A strong, musty odor may indicate hidden mold behind drywall or under carpeting.

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Dane County West for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.

If you think you might have a mold problem, call SERVPRO of Dane County West #608-497-3331. SERVPRO of Dane County West has the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem.

“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

Understanding What Type of Water You Are Dealing With Is Critical to Ensuring Proper Cleanup

11/19/2019 (Permalink)

a leaking water heater, a saturated computer, a person walking a bathroom with tub overflow and a broken water pipe Have Water, Sump Pump, Sewage, or Flood Damage? Call SERVPRO of Dane County West Today – (608) 497-3331 #SERVPROdanecountywest #waterdamage

When your home or business suffers water damage, understanding what type of water you are dealing with is critical to ensuring proper cleanup. 

There are three types of water.

  1. Clean water, also referred to as Category 1, is water from a faucet; rainwater is also considered clean. The term gray water is used to classify slightly contaminated water. 
  2. Clean water becomes gray water, also referred to as Category 2, when it is left untreated, allowing bacteria and other contaminants to begin growing, making the water hazardous.
  3. Blackwater, or also referred to as Category 3, is highly contaminated and filled with fungi, bacteria, chemicals, and more. Sewage damage, flooding, or any natural disaster involving moving water is considered Blackwater. Trained professionals should always handle Category 3 water damage.

When you have water damage, don't leave your property to chance. Call your local SERVPRO® Franchise Professionals. Consider taking the following precautions to help minimize damage or prevent further damage while waiting for help to arrive:

DAMAGE FROM CLEAN WATER

Shut off the water source if possible or contact a qualified professional to do so. 

Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building if access to the power distribution panel is safe from potential electrical shock. Do not enter rooms with standing water, as electrical shock hazards may exist. 

Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting. Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removing lamps and tabletop items. 

Remove and prop up wet upholstery cushions to allow more even drying. 

Move any paintings, art objects, computers, documents, and other valuable items that may be sensitive to moisture to a safe place. 

Do not leave books, newspapers, magazines, or other colored items on wet carpets or floors as they may cause staining. 

Do not use your household vacuum cleaner to remove water as there is potential for electrical shock or to cause damage to the vacuum cleaner. 

Do not turn on ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet; do not enter rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water. 

DAMAGE FROM CONTAMINATED WATER

Avoid all contact with sewage and items contaminated by sewage. Wash your hands thoroughly if you come in contact with contaminated objects. 

Do not walk through contaminated areas, as you could spread damage to unaffected areas. 

Do not turn on the HVAC system if there is a possibility of spreading contaminated air. 

Do not use household fans to dry the structure; air flow could spread contaminants. 

Discard any food and products for personal hygiene and cleanliness if exposed to the contaminated areas.

Each November, families gather to celebrate Thanksgiving by preparing a delicious feast. Unfortunately, if you do not practice safe cooking habits, your happy holiday could quickly become hazardous in a blink of an eye. According to the NFPA, cooking is the primary cause of home fires and injuries, with the Thanksgiving holiday being the peak day for cooking-related fire emergencies. Review the following safety tips to help ensure you can enjoy a safe holiday.

  • Never leave cooking food unattended—stay in the kitchen while frying, grilling, or broiling food. 
  • Check food regularly while cooking and remain in the home while kitchen equipment is in use. Use a timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on.
  • Keep small children away from the cooking area. Enforce a "kid-free zone" and make them stay at least three feet away from the stove and oven.
  • Keep anything flammable like potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, food packaging, and towels away from the stove, oven, or other appliances in the kitchen that generates heat.
  • Do not wear loose clothing or dangling sleeves while cooking.
  • Clean cooking surfaces frequently to prevent grease build-up.
  • Purchase a fire extinguisher to keep in the kitchen year-round. Contact the local fire department for training on the proper use of ?re extinguishers if you are unsure.
  • Always check the kitchen before going to bed or leaving home to make sure all kitchen appliances like stoves, ovens, and toasters are turned off
  • Install a smoke alarm near the kitchen and on each level of the home. Especially near sleeping areas, and inside and outside of bedrooms. Use the test button to check it is working correctly every month. Replace the batteries at least once a year.

If the unthinkable happens and a fire strikes your business or home, give the experts at SERVPRO of Dane County West a call. We will help make it "Like it never even happened."

Fire Damage Emergency Tips

When Time Matters, Technology and Equipment Must be Counted On To Perform

THE TOOLS WE USE

At SERVPRO of Dane County West, helping our customers and returning water and/or fire-damaged areas and items to their preloss condition is our number one priority. To do this, SERVPRO of Dane County West understands that using the proper equipment makes a measurable difference in reducing claims loss expense. When time matters, technology, and equipment must be counted on to perform. With that in mind, we will take you through a behind-the-scenes look at some of the tools we use to help get your property and structure to its preloss condition. Each machine and piece of equipment has a crucial role in the restoration process. Every SERVPRO of Dane County West Restoration Technicians is trained to use each piece of equipment to its highest potential. Here are a few of our most commonly seen and used machines and their purpose.

PORTABLE EXTRACTORS: Extractors are used for cleaning carpets, cleaning upholstery, and removing water from floors after a water loss. An extractor has three major components: a heater, a pump, and a vacuum system. Restoration Technicians use this machine for variable heat-controlled cleaning, including to heat the rinse solutions to clean more effectively. The vacuum system and waste recovery tank remove soils and moisture from the surface and collects it in the reservoir. With this machine, we can expedite the removal of water and humidity from damaged materials and textiles to help restore it to preloss conditions. In doing this, the potential of having to replace contents or belongings is lowered.

THE OZONE GENERATOR: The portable ozone generator eliminates a variety of odors caused by animals, cigarette smoke, mold and mildew, fire, and water damage. This machine generates "ozone," which consists of unstable oxygen molecules (containing three oxygen atoms). Ozone chemically reacts with odor-causing molecules to oxidize residues and remove the odors. When using this piece of equipment, we follow the necessary guidelines. People and pets need to evacuate from the environment during the ozone process for health and safety reasons. Once the deodorization process is complete, ozone quickly reverts to the typical oxygen molecule, leaving no residues. Once the odor is gone, the results are permanent. One of the features of the ozone generator is that it is made to be compact and portable, yet also be a durable and professional unit.

WEARING AND FIT CHECKING OUR RESPIRATORS: Safety for not only our Technicians but also our customers is a priority at SERVPRO. We enforce that respirators must be worn during all times by our technicians during exposure to hazardous situations. Our crews wear their respirators to be safe. If we are using respirators, we inform customers in the general area of this and advise them with the necessary precautions associated with the work going on for their safety.

DEHUMIDIFICATION EQUIPMENT:  

The dehumidification process increases the rate of evaporation by removing water vapor from the air. Our Restoration Technicians position dehumidifiers strategically in a water-damaged structure, so the moist, humid air moves through the unit while dry, warm air is discharged. Did you know that dry air acts like a sponge to absorb moisture from wet materials? Since it does, we use the dehumidifiers, primarily because it provides a continual source of dry air to enhance the restoration process. We use small commercial refrigerant-dehumidifiers because it removes approximately 8 gallons of water per day from the atmosphere. An extra-large industrial refrigerant could remove as much as 20 gallons per day.

AIR MOVING EQUIPMENT: Air movers are used in water damage restoration to enhance evaporation at the surface level and reduce drying time. These machines introduce airflow at the surface level and replace the highly saturated air with drier air to enhance dissipation. Our crew is required to complete the "science of drying" coursework. This coursework teaches them how many air movers they will need and how to position them to create airflow across all wet surfaces. In some cases, when the lower portion of multiple walls are saturated, many air movers are placed to create a vortex of circular airflow around the walls. Our technicians operate the air movers in several different positions, offering flexibility in how to direct the airflow with the best possible outcome. 

TRUCK MOUNT EXTRACTOR: A truck-mounted extraction unit consists of several smaller components, which work together to make one of the best pieces of cleaning equipment in the industry. The pieces are made up of the engine, the vacuum, the chemical pump, the water pump, and the heating system. The heated chemical pumping system, along with the vacuum extraction tool, remove various soils and pressurizes the water used for cleaning. Due to the required training of this equipment, our technicians know the specific environment needed for this piece of machinery to work and how to maintain it appropriately for health and safety reasons. 

The SERVPRO® Equipment Department tests all equipment, including the truck mount, before putting the items in the product line. To provide the best service to our customers, we must know how the truck mount works, how to set up and maintain the unit, how to use it safely, how to clean the vehicle interior, unit, tools, hoses, and so forth as needed, and how to inspect all equipment and accessories for any damage, leaks, or wear.

There are many other devices and accessories we use, but for today's behind-the-scenes look, these are some our most commonly used pieces of equipment. The use of these devices helps us get your water or fire disaster back to its preloss condition. SERVPRO of Dane County West is always here to help!

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."

The Behavior of Smoke and Soot Residue After a Fire

11/11/2019 (Permalink)

black background with smoke billowing with a title that reads The Behavior of Smoke If your home or business suffers ?re or smoke damage, contact SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals to help. #608-497-3331

The damage to your property following a fire can often be complicated due to the unique behavior 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.

SERVPRO of Dane County West professionals are thoroughly trained in fire cleanup and restoration and know the different types of smoke and their behavior patterns. Knowing this information is vital to proper restoration. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO professionals will survey the loss to determine the extent of impact from fire, smoke, heat, and moisture on the building materials and its contents. The soot will then be tested to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. Pretesting determines the proper cleaning method and allows your local SERVPRO of Dane County West professionals to focus on saving your precious items.

Your local SERVPRO of Dane County West professionals know smoke can penetrate various cavities within the structure, causing hidden damage and odor. Their knowledge of building systems helps them investigate how far smoke damage may have spread. The following points are additional facts you may not know about smoke.

  • Hot smoke migrates to colder 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 significantly affect the restoration process.

 TYPES OF SMOKE

  • Wet Smoke. (Plastic and Rubber) Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, and 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.
  • Fuel Oil Soot. (Furnace puff backs) While “puff backs” can create havoc for homeowners, SERVPRO of Dane County West professionals can, in most cases, restore the contents and structure quickly.
  • Other Types. (Tear gas, fingerprint powder, and fire extinguisher residue) Special loss situations require special care.

SERVPRO of Dane County West professionals are trained to handle even the toughest of losses. If your home or business suffers ?re or smoke damage, contact SERVPRO of Dane County West to help make it “Like it never even happened.”

The SERVPRO Difference - The Drying Process 

When your home or commercial property has water damage from storms, flooding, leaks, broken pipes, overflowed toilets, overflowed sinks, broken water appliance lines, flooded basements, etc..., 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.
