a family room with charred fire damaged walls with a green air purifier Have Questions About Fire, Smoke, or Soot Damage? Call SERVPRO of Dane County West Today – (608) 497-3331

Fire Damage - What to Do Until Help Arrives

A fire can leave behind soot, smoke damage and a host of other problems. Ceilings, walls, woodwork, carpeting, and floors will often need a thorough professional cleaning.  If your home or business suffers a fire, it is important to take the appropriate steps to prevent further damage until SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals arrive. The following tips may help reduce damage and increase chances of a successful restoration. 

Do's:

  • DO: Limit movement of people in the structure to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets.
  • DO: Keep hands clean. Soot on hands can further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.
  • DO: Place dry, colorfast towels on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.
  • DO: If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator completely, and prop doors open to help prevent odors.
  • DO: Wipe soot from chrome on kitchen and bathroom faucets, trim and appliances.  
  • DO: Pour antifreeze into sinks, toilet bowls, holding tanks and tubs if heat is off during freezing season.
  • DO: Gently wash both sides of leaves on indoor plants.
  • DO: Change HVAC filter, but leave system off until checked by a trained professional.
  • DO: Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers to stop particles of soot from getting in or out of the HVAC system. 

Don'ts:

  • Don't: Attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting SERVPRO of Dane County West.
  • Don't: Attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first consulting SERVPRO of Dane County West.
  • Don't: Attempt to clean any electrical appliances (TV sets, computers, etc.) that may have been close to fire, heat or water without first consulting an authorized repair service person.
  • Don't: Consume any canned or packaged food or beverages that may have been stored close to fire, heat or water. (They may be contaminated.)
  • Don't: Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet. Wiring may be wet or damaged and cause electrical shock.

MOLD Management - A "Typical" Mold Removal Process

When there's a water intrusion in your Dane County, Madison, WI property, like a roof leak, a busted frozen pipe, appliance malfunction, or leaking water line, mold can quickly become a problem in your home or business.

Mold and mildew will develop within 24-48 hours of water exposure and will continue to grow until the source of the moisture is eliminated. Mold can cause health effects and can also cause significant damage to your property. Fortunately, SERVPRO of Dane County West has the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem. Although every mold damage scenario is different, requiring a unique solution, the general mold remediation process stays the same. The following steps illustrate a "typical" mold removal process.

The mold cleanup and restoration process begin when you call SERVPRO. A representative will ask a series of questions to determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel needed.

Inspection and Damage Assessment

Your property will be carefully inspected for mold signs using technology designed to detect mold and hidden water sources. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view.

Here at SERVPRO of Dane County West, we highly recommend that our customers engage Industrial Hygienists/Environmentalists to detect exactly where microbial growth may be found in their homes. This is a partnership we strongly recommend and is mutually beneficial for our customers.

Industrial Hygienists/Environmentalists are specialists who tend to approach indoor mold conditions primarily from a scientific perspective. They are trained to take air samples and surface samples of visually apparent mold and develop a protocol for the remediation process.

Once a customer has a sample analysis completed, SERVPRO of Dane County West completes the detected mold's remediation. 

Mold Containment

Various containment procedures will be placed to prevent the spread of mold and isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process.

Air Filtration

Specialized filtration equipment captures microscopic mold spores out of the air. SERVPRO technicians utilize powerful air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent these mold spores' spread while the mold remediation is in progress.

Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. Anti-fungal and antimicrobial treatments will be used to eliminate mold colonies and help prevent new colonies from forming. Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and flooring, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.

Cleaning Contents and Belongings

SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals clean restorable items affected by mold. They use a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and sanitize your belongings. They are also trained to remove odors and deodorization using fogging equipment.

Restoration

Depending on the mold damage level, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may be removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet. It may entail major repairs such as reconstructing various areas or rooms in a home or business.

SERVPRO of Dane County West is proud to serve the West Dane County, Madison, WI area. Equipped with the training, tools, and experience to quickly and efficiently mitigate water, fire or mold damage and restore your home or business, SERVPRO of Dane County West will help make it "Like it never even happened.”®

Tips for Preventing Ice Dam Water Damage Near You

1/17/2022 (Permalink)

an illustrated graphic of an ice dam Have Water Damage, Storm Damage, Flood Damage, Fire Damage or Mold? Call SERVPRO of Dane County West Today (608) 497-3331

Winter Weather Worries in Madison, WI - Ice Dams

A roof leaking water into your interior walls, ceilings, and floors is not a pretty picture. Ice dams are a leading culprit for water leaks during the winter season. They form when heated air melts roof snow above and behind the dammed up ice when the trapped water cannot safely flow or run off the roof. The ice-dam backflows under the roof's shingles and into interior areas. 

SERVPRO of Dane County West can help mitigate water damage caused by ice dams and help you get your structure back to preloss condition. 

Tips to prevent ice dams from forming on your roof

Consider these tried and true preventative measures:

  • Start by removing the offending culprit in the first place. Shovel or use a snow rake to remove the snow from your roof.
  • Make sure your attic and rafter space is adequately insulated. Insulation is the first line of defense consideration.
  • Make sure your attic and crawl spaces are well ventilated. The buildup of warm air in open areas above the layer of insulation is what causes snow on the roof to melt then freeze into ice dams in the first place.
  • Make sure exhaust fans, plumbing vents recessed ceiling fans, and anything penetrating through your roof are sealed and insulated.
  • Add properly installed heat tape to the lower few feet of the roof in areas where ice dams are likely to occur.
  • Recessed lighting in a ceiling such as in an attic, truss cavity, or soffits can create a tremendous amount of heat that rises and melts snow on the roof. Recessed lights are seldom insulated and sealed correctly.
  • Replacing heat-generating incandescent and halogen bulbs with compact fluorescent or LED bulbs is an easy way to reduce the amount of unwanted heat in your attic or truss cavities.
  • Try to keep vaulted ceilings cooler than the rest of the home, if possible.

When should I be concerned about water coming inside my structure?

  • Icicles forming on the edge of your roof are the most apparent indicator of ice dams and possible water invasion.
  • Be extra aware when ice accumulates higher than just the edge of the roof, over the gutters, or up onto the roof itself.
  • If ice forms underneath the soffits through the vents, on the wall, or under windows, water is invading your structure.

What do I do if I think I have water damage?

Why Are Frozen Pipes Dangerous Near You?

1/17/2022 (Permalink)

copper pipes that are frozen and covered in ice If a frozen water pipe bursts and you experience water damage or flooding Call SERVPRO of Dane County West Today (608) 497-3331.

When the temperatures drop in the Dane County, Madison, WI area, one major issue is frozen water pipes and their potential to bust.

Busted frozen water pipes unfortunately lead to flooding and water damage if not addressed immediately. Learn why frozen pipes are so dangerous, the types of pipes that are most vulnerable to freezing and the signs that a pipe is actually frozen.

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 insulation 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.

Signs of Frozen Pipes

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

  • 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.

If a Water Pipe is Frozen, 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.

Tips to Help Prevent Frozen Pipes from Bursting Near You

Frozen pipe image with SERVPRO logo and title saying Frozen Pipes and Winter Weather Damage Have Water, Storm, Flood, or Fire Damage? Call SERVPRO of Dane County West Today (608) 497-3331. IICRC Certified Firm, 24/7 Emergency Services.

Pipes can freeze and eventually burst in freezing temperatures.

Water has a unique property of expanding as it freezes that can cause pipes to crack and then burst. The ensuing rush of water can cause considerable damage to your property if not addressed quickly. SERVPRO of Dane County West is faster to any size disaster, bringing the latest equipment and training to help make your water damage "Like it never even happened."

Take a few simple steps now to prevent suffering and grief down the road.

  • Inspect outdoor faucetsNow.  Find the indoor shut-off valve for the outdoor faucet in the basement or crawl space and shut it off. Then open the outdoor faucet to help ensure it relieves pressure and drains completely.
  • Make sure that your heating system is maintained regularly. Also, inspect the insulation on all of your plumbing as well as your cold water tank. Units in the attic should be protected with insulated sleeves. 
  • During severe cold snaps, open cabinets where pipes are exposed so warm air can circulate.
  • Third, keep your heat on throughout the winter months. During harsh, cold months, the chances of your pipes freezing increases as the temperature plummets. 
  • Clean your gutters so melting snow and ice can flow freely
  • Open cabinet doors below sinks. It will help allow warm air to circulate.
  • Drain your water system if you are away for an extended time.
  • Disconnect all gardening hoses and install covers on all outside faucets.
  • Wrap pipes nearest exterior walls and in crawl spaces with pipe insulation or with heating tape.
  • Close all windows near water pipes; cover or close open-air vents. Freezing temperatures combined with wind drafts can cause pipes to freeze more frequently.
  • Heat your basement and consider weather sealing your windows.
  • Insulate outside walls and unheated areas of your home.

Monitor Freezing Pipe Conditions:

  • The first sign of freezing is reduced water flow from a faucet.
  • Check your faucets for water flow and pressure before retiring for the night and again when you wake up.
  • Check pipes around your water meter, in unheated areas, near exterior walls, and in crawl spaces.
  • Identify cold air drafts coming in from a flue or chimney chase and caulk gaps near pipes.

If a Pipe Freezes:

  • If a faucet or pipe inside your house freezes, you can thaw it using a good hairdryer. (For safety purposes, avoid operating a hair dryer around standing water.)
  • When thawing a pipe, start thawing it nearest to the faucet. Make sure the faucet is turned on so that melted water can drip out.

If a Pipe Bursts:

  • Shut off water at the main valve.
  • If the break is in a hot water pipe, the valve on top of the water heater should be closed.

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

Dryer Fires Can Cause Significant Fire Damage Near You

Tips for Avoiding Fire Damage Caused by a Dryer Fire

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) research reveals that “One-third (32 percent) of dryer fires were caused by a failure to clean. This appears to be mainly lint build-up, as 27 percent of dryer fires started when dust, fiber, or lint ignited. Mechanical failures or malfunctions caused 27% of dryer fires; 16% were caused by electrical failures or malfunctions.”

A dryer fire can cause significant fire damage in Madison, WI, homes - tips to help homeowners proactively prevent a fire from breaking out in the laundry room.

  1. Clean the lint out of the dryer’s lint filter after every load.

Lint accumulation causes over one-fourth of dryer fires. Clean the lint filter after each load to prevent lint accumulation from igniting.

  1. When cleaning chemical stains, use caution.

Fabric with oil, gas, or cleaning chemicals stains are flammable substances that should be regarded as a potential fire hazard. Consumer Reports writes, “The Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends washing such stained clothing more than once to minimize volatile chemicals, then hanging to dry. If you must use a dryer, use the lowest heat setting and a drying cycle that concludes with a cool-down period. In the event that a fire does start, keep the dryer door closed to limit its oxygen supply—a fire needs oxygen to keep it going.”

  1. Perform an annual cleaning and inspection of the dryer and dryer duct.

To avoid blockages in the vent or duct, it’s important to clean and inspect the dryer at least once a year. By cleaning and inspecting the dryer at least once a year, the homeowner can identify and resolve any problems before they lead to a damaged appliance or a fire.

It’s important to disconnect the dryer from its power source, and to cut off the gas valve that supplies the dryer before cleaning and inspecting is done.  Do not damage the gas line or stretch it too tightly if it’s a gas dryer.

Consumer Reports provides the following dryer cleaning tips: “Disconnect the duct from the dryer, and vacuum both the dryer and the duct—as much as you can access. Where possible, separate the duct into shorter sections for better access, then reassemble and attach the duct to the dryer. Be sure all joints in the duct are properly connected and held together with clamps or foil tape. Then return the dryer to its original spot and reconnect the power. While you’re at it, clean behind the dryer and underneath it—lint builds up there, too. In winter, check after windy weather or snowstorms to be sure that snow isn’t blocking the outdoor vent.”

  1. Replace plastic or foil accordion ducts with rigid metal ducts.

Accordion ducts are problematic because they are too flexible or can easily crumple, leading to problems such as restricted airflow and lint buildup. A rigid metal duct is a safer choice.

  1. Avoid using sheet metal screws to connect duct sections.

Sheet metal screws can collect lint, which leads to lint buildup within the duct. Instead, attach duct sections with duct connectors and metal clamps or dryer vent foil tape.

  1. Prequalify a reputable damage restoration company before a dryer fire occurs.
