Commercial How Our Highly Trained Technicians Will Mitigate Your Commercial Water Damage In Tallassee We regularly assist business owners in Tallassee combat the problem of commercial water damage.

Mitigation Of Commercial Water Damage In A Tallassee Hotel

When your Tallassee hotel guests complain of unpleasant or stale odors, you need to address these as quickly as possible. While staff can use deodorizing sprays to mask the problem for a while, this in no way resolves the issue at its source. Until then, your guests continue noticing such odors.

We regularly assist business owners in Tallassee combat the problem of commercial water damage. Odors are not the only noticeable effect of water that has seeped into your property. Sometimes water comes in through a leak in an appliance, a water line, or from backed up drains. SERVPRO can fix these problems for you and mitigate any other damage we find.

As materials deteriorate from water damage, the microscopic particles end up in the air. This is where the unwanted odors come from that your guests detect during their stay. We use different devices to locate saturated materials so we can perform the work needed to get rid of the damage and restore things “Like it never even happened.”

Other areas of a hotel that often suffers when water damage is present include dry rotting of carpeting, discolored paint, mold and mildew in guest rooms' drapes and other soft furnishings, and elevated humidity throughout your hotel. Stopping the water can resolve high humidity levels, but we must actively mitigate the other situations.

SERVPRO crew members hold IICRC certifications in Water Damage Restoration (WRT) and keep up-to-date on the latest advances in restoration technology. We have the equipment needed to give us the upper hand on any size job. We can rectify more than odors emanating from damaged areas of your hotel. We can also prevent mold and mildew, clean up stains, and perform maintenance on carpeting.

We also train our employees in how to properly work around your guests to effectively minimize the disruption and interference our presence might cause them. When needed, we can help your staff with relocating long-term guests' belongings to areas without water damage. We can work on one wing at a time so that you can continue serving guests and eliminate any need to close. We understand you need to maintain operations as normally as possible.

SERVPRO of Prattville is ready to help keep your hotel running smoothly while we eliminate the odors caused by water damage. Other problems that arise from water leaks can also cause you problems, but we are ready to help you resolve these issues. Contact us at (334) 358-1186 so we can help you protect your investment, including those located in Millbrook and Deatsville.

MOLD MYTHS ARE REAL!! Prattville Property Owners Turn to SERVPRO for the Facts and Remediation

Mold Remediation MOLD MYTHS ARE REAL!! Prattville Property Owners Turn to SERVPRO for the Facts and Remediation Mold & Myths in Prattville? Not in this Photo--Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Remediation

The Misinformation about Mold Damage in Your Prattville House

In the restoration and remediation industry that we belong to, we have found that bad information and myths pose the greatest threats to the Prattville community that we serve. While disasters still occur on a regular basis that requires our expertise and training to overcome, our technicians also battle the common beliefs of homeowners about legitimate threats to their home like mold growth.

You may or may not be among the group of Prattville homeowners that do not fully understand mold damages or even consider them a threat to your house. In this case, a lack of credible information available has led to a misunderstanding about the hazards and potential health risks of mold colonization in your house. The more you understand about this organism, the better you can appreciate the need to remove it immediately upon discovery. The myths abound in great number.

One of the first points that you need to know about mold growth in your home is that it is something that continually gets worse the longer it gets ignored. In coupling this information with the understanding that every type of mold that can colonize within your home poses risks to both the construction materials, contents, and even the occupants of your house, you now have a situation that is steadily getting out of control. Our SERVPRO remediation technicians have encountered many homes where the mold colonies had overtaken materials like drywall and wood framing to the point that they were unsalvageable.

The organism feeds on organic materials, and it just so happens that nearly all of the components used in modern construction fit this criterion. Mold growth in your home can quickly spread as a result, given so many surfaces and items that provide a location for spores to seat and a food source to thrive. Our SERVPRO rapid response team can isolate a growing colony and work to preserve materials through the use of antimicrobial solutions, soda blasting, and sanding to remove the organism entirely.

Mold growth is something that every homeowner should take a few minutes to educate themselves about, especially those that might be under the impression that mold is harmless. If you discover a colony or need an inspection for present colonies or potential problem areas, give our SERVPRO of Prattville remediation specialists a call today at (334) 358-1186.

SERVPRO's Fool-Proof Formula For Easy Fire Damage Restoration In Tallassee

Fire Damage SERVPRO's Fool-Proof Formula For Easy Fire Damage Restoration In Tallassee While you might not think of a maxed-out outlet as a source for fire damages in your home, you might find yourself surprised at how common it is.

Overloaded Electrical Systems Can Cause Fire Damages In Your Tallassee Home

An alarming fact is that many Tallassee homeowners are not aware of some of the things that they might regularly do to pose significant risks to their property. An excellent example of this might be overloading the electrical systems throughout their house at specific outlets. Not only is this unwise for the devices and appliances that use this particular outlet, but it also can allow for the unfortunate event of combustion and fire.

While you might not think of a maxed-out outlet as a source for fire damages in your Tallassee home, you might find yourself surprised at how common this occurrence is. The breaker box and fuses get designed to trip or shut off when certain networks become overloaded, but this is not a failsafe that you want to rely on to work explicitly. One malfunctioning component and a spark could occur which ignites materials in the nearby area.

One of the ways that you can avoid this occurrence is to ensure that the outlets that you have installed can accommodate the appliances and devices you plug into them. Avoid using extension cords where possible, as this extends the reach of the electrical system but adds more potentially faulty components to combust and ignite. Fire damages of this magnitude often require professional restoration to recover, much like our SERVPRO technicians can provide.

From the moment that our experienced SERVPRO team arrives at your home following an electrical fire, we can assess the full scope of structural damage and fire effects to develop an efficient plan to restore your home completely. Often our services are at the behest of the insurance company that offers coverage to your home, but we are available for you the client whenever you need us.

While it might be a common occurrence to push outlets beyond their power limits, you should understand that this could eventually result in fire damages to your home. If you face an emergency, you can always depend on our SERVPRO of Prattville rapid response team to help you bring your house back to preloss conditions as efficiently as possible. Give us a call anytime at (334) 358-1186.

Restoring Fire Damages to a Wetumpka Church

Commercial Restoring Fire Damages to a Wetumpka Church Trust our SERVPRO crew to take care of your local church in the event a fire strikes.

Our SERVPRO Team is Equipped to Restore Fire Damage from Your Commercial Property

Disasters in your Wetumpka church are rarely easy to restore and clean up without specialized equipment and specific training. Especially in the event of a fire throughout the building, effects and damages could be widespread and vary significantly. It is critical to get these damages taken care of as quickly as possible to help to reduce the overall tear out and replacement needs for the facility, but also to get your place of worship back into top shape as promptly as possible.

Fire damages to your Wetumpka church present themselves in various ways from soot/smoke damage to structural integrity concerns and even water damage from extinguishment. Understanding how each of these effects requires a specific approach can help you to appreciate your need for professional restoration services like what our SERVPRO technicians can provide. We work hard to live up to our slogan that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

The contents of your church are often what takes the worst of the lingering effects like soot and smoke damage. Carpeting throughout the sanctuary is an excellent example of this. Not only are these fibers a magnet for the carbon film of soot and debris, but this material and the subflooring can become overly saturated and weaken on account of the water used to fight the flames. Removing the moisture and restoring these areas take several intricate steps from weighted extraction into carpet cleaning to fully restore.

Materials throughout the affected areas like drywall and wood are particularly susceptible to absorbing the smoke damage, ultimately requiring deodorization. The environment is particularly volatile following the extinguishing of a fire, which our SERVPRO technicians prepare for with the use of personal protective equipment like respirators and coveralls. To clear the atmosphere within the building, a combination of air scrubbers and thermal foggers are used to clean out soot, debris and other contaminants from the air and then to deodorize the lingering smoke damage.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

With the congregation that you can expect throughout the week to use your church, taking care of a significant disaster like a widespread fire requires much more than you can do on your own. If you get posed with a situation like this in the future, trust in the experience and rapid response of our SERVPRO of Prattville fire restoration technicians. Our response team is available 24/7 by calling (334) 358-1186.

Preventing Fire Damages To Your Tallassee Residence

Fire Damage Preventing Fire Damages To Your Tallassee Residence One of the most unexpected and devastating occurrences to your Tallassee home is a fire.

Preventing Fire Damages To Your Residence

One of the most unexpected and devastating occurrences to your Tallassee home is a fire. To make matters worse, many of these situations could get avoided with the right precautionary measures and better education. Most homeowners assume that smoke detectors offer enough of a warning about the dangers of a disaster in your house, enough to notify first responders before too much damage occurs, but this is not always the case.

This occurrence is not inevitable nor is it something that even most homeowners have to experience throughout their lives. Still, fire damages can prove a lingering menace in your Tallassee home that requires attention from trained professionals like our SERVPRO restoration team. In even the best of circumstances, fire can still leave its mark on your house that conventional cleaning methods are unable to restore.

However, there are ways that you can better prepare your home and help to prevent a fire from ever starting actively. Much of this precautionary work comes from being more mindful of appliances in your home as they age, as these can often be a source of ignition. Another measure you can take is to ensure that you have fire suppression equipment in utility areas of your house for easy access.

Fire extinguishers are a great example of suppression equipment that you should have readily available throughout your home. These can help you to put out a small fire before it has the opportunity to get out of control and cause significant damage throughout your house. A quickly extinguished fire often leaves only minimal damages for our SERVPRO professionals to restore, making the process much quicker and ultimately cheaper.

While there are many ways that you can be more mindful around your home to help prevent the possibility of a fire, there are also some instances where it cannot get avoided. If you have already experienced fire damages in your home, count on our SERVPRO of Prattville fire restoration technicians to restore the damage quickly and get your home back to preloss condition. SERVPRO's rapid response team is available 24/7 at (334) 358-1186.

Appliances can Leave Flood Damage in Your Tallassee Residence

7/31/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Appliances can Leave Flood Damage in Your Tallassee Residence Flooding from your dishwasher can put you under many inches of water. Contact SERVPRO to dry out your property and remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Technicians Effectively Dry Out Your Property After Flooding Regardless of the Source

Some of your Tallassee home's appliances use water to perform their function. Washing machines, dishwashers, water heaters, and many of the more recent refrigerator models have their own water lines. Each of these lines can cause severe problems inside your home when they break or come loose at either end.
 
Regularly checking the water lines in your home's appliances can reduce the chances of such incidents leading to flood damage in Tallassee. SERVPRO technicians are always ready for those unexpected emergencies, though, no matter how large or small. We assist homeowners in regaining control of their homes and make things “Like it never even happened.” once again.
 
Flood damage from appliances that leak or malfunction by overflowing introduces clean water into your home, as opposed to the highly contaminated water experienced during weather-related flooding. We still must remove this water as soon as possible. Clean water can become contaminated from absorbing substances found on your floors and lower portions of walls.
 
Staining of carpets also becomes much more likely as time passes. With weather-related flood damage, we typically cannot save carpeting. When flooding comes from an interior source such as from an appliance's leak or overflow caused by a clog, we have a much better chance of saving our customers the expense of replacing their carpets. We must replace the padding in almost all cases, however, just because of the way in which it disintegrates when exposed to water.
 
Removing the water after stopping its flow at the source shows up any primary damage. Because we know the water contains little contamination, we can work more rapidly. We do not need to remove any silt or other debris that we find in other types of flooding disasters. We also do not need to remove as many materials from your home's structure.
 
Airing out the interior spaces of your home's walls using our Injectidry system can save your home from experiencing secondary water damage like microbial infestations. SERVPRO technicians also use heated extraction units to remove water that seeped into hard-to-reach places like under floorboards.
 
SERVPRO of Prattville has the equipment and experience your home needs when it suffers flood damage. Appliances can go from helping us to almost destroying our homes because of a small water line quite quickly and with little or no warning. Our team is ready to help you. All you need to do is call us at (334) 358-1186 whenever your home experiences an emergency.

Grease Fires In Your Tallassee Restaurant Require Fast Fire Damage Restoration

7/17/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Grease Fires In Your Tallassee Restaurant Require Fast Fire Damage Restoration A kitchen fire might happen at a moment's notice, so you need to have professional restoration that can arrive quickly as well.

Fast Fire Damage Restoration

Kitchen fires can happen in the blink of an eye inside of your Tallassee restaurant. Even with only a small area affected, the lingering effects and acute symptoms of the blaze pose a threat to your customers and staff. One of the most detrimental of these effects is a noxious smoke odor that can spread out well beyond the confinements of where the fire happened.

With the oils and grease used in or produced by the dishes you create in your Tallassee kitchen, open flames provide an ever-present risk of severe and threatening situations. While your kitchen area likely gets equipped with several types of extinguishers to handle a variety of fires, resolving the damage that has occurred has to happen before your restaurant can function at its best again.

Our SERVPRO professionals understand the importance of your business and customer satisfaction. When a disaster like this occurs in your building, you want to have the damage restored and return your eatery to the atmosphere that your customers are accustomed to experiencing. It's part of our rapid response approach to serving our community, being there as promptly as possible to clean up the mess and get your facility back to preloss conditions.

With even localized fires in your kitchen, damages can quickly spread to cabinetry and counters, requiring the need for both cleanup and even possibly demolition and reconstruction. Still, one of the most significant threats to a customer experience is the foul odor wafting through the dining area from the recent kitchen blaze.

Remedying this odor often requires our SERVPRO technicians to use thermal foggers. These machines release a chemical solution into the environment and over the contents of the room to break apart noxious odor molecules and neutralize them.

A kitchen fire might happen at a moment's notice, so you need to have professional restoration that can arrive quickly as well. Call our SERVPRO of Prattville fire restoration technicians whenever you need us at (334) 358-1186.
