Water damage in the spring

2/28/2020 (Permalink)

Areas are already at flood action stage, which means water in streams and rivers is already at or near the top of the banks. As we haven’t even entered our winter thaw season, residents could be in for some water damage.

As spring rains are sure to come, its important to know the common causes of home flooding. Windows that are built below ground level are at specific risk for water seepage. While constructed to prevent water entering through the actual window opening, over time the structures supporting and surrounding window wells can form small cracks in which water can travel into when ground water levels are at saturation.

Another common cause to be aware of is foundation flooding. Foundation flooding can occur as foundations age, settle, and form cracks over time. It is important that your drainage gutters are far enough away from your foundation that no extra water buildup will affect its integrity. If the ground is saturated with water, that water still needs a path to follow, so any small pathway in your foundation could be exposed.

Another common cause of water damage during high water level periods is a failed sump pump. As we enter the time of the year with elevated precipitation it is crucial to make sure your sump pump is operating effectively.

We at SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro are standing by to help you with any issue that arises from potential water damage.

Storm damage and freezing pipes

12/20/2019 (Permalink)

Here, winters can be brutal on our homes. Freezing pipes are always a possibility and can be costly to repair. Here are some tips if this issue occurs in your home. Tip #1 A hairdryer doesn't always do the trick when it comes to frozen pipes.Sometimes heating cables are necessary to dethaw a frozen pipe.they are like long extension cords you wrap around your cold water pipes to keep them from freezing. Pipes can also freeze behind walls which can cause issues in the long run. It can lead to mold or removal of the wall itself in order to fix the problem. If an exterior wall is not properly insulated it can cause interior pipes to freeze. If these issues happen to you, give SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro a call we're always here to help. another great tip is too leave your water drip just a little during the winter months. it will not impact your water bill too much and will save you costly repairs in the future.

Freezing pipes can lead to water damage

12/18/2019 (Permalink)

With temps getting colder in the  area there is a potential for pipes to freeze and cause serious water damage both outside and inside your home. Here are some tips to avoid frozen pipes in your home or business property.

On the inside:

If you will be away from home for days at a time, make sure that all of your pipes are kept warm, especially in spaces that receive little or no heat. If any pipes will stay exposed to freezing temperatures, open up one faucet with a very small drip to keep water moving through the pipes.  Also, leave cabinet doors open to expose pipes to the air temperature within the room. 


On the outside:

Protect your pipes as you would protect your plants. Cover up your outside faucets with foam or towels to insulate them.  Make sure the water is turned off from the main valve. If you plan to be away from home this winter, remember to leave your contact information with a neighbor. You might consider giving them a key to your home, too, and leaving your preferred plumber's contact information behind should an emergency occur.

If your pipes burst and your home has water damage call your plumber and then call SERVPRO of Middletown/Springboro.

Handle a sewage damage in your home

12/13/2019 (Permalink)

There are a number of things you’d prefer to never have to deal with in your home, and one of them is finding sewage damage. Whether you’ve come across a stubborn flooded toilet, a clogged drainage system or a full-blown flood from sewer backup, the end result is never pretty. If you’re wondering just how to go about treating and disinfecting your residence, here are three ways to instantly start managing sewer cleanup in a safe and responsible manner.

1. Avoid using the water supply system in your home if the damage is overwhelming.
You may be used to the occasional backed-up sink or toilet. However, if the damage is severe and the clog or disruption hasn’t been cleared yet, attempting to use any water in the home can result in even more destruction. It’s best to contact a professional team of water damage restoration specialists equipped to handle not only the immediate cleanup, but the necessary sterilization procedures afterwards to ensure your home is left safe and habitable.

2. If it’s still safe for you to be inside your home, wear protective clothing near the damaged areas.
When sewer cleanup is underway, keep your body covered in protective clothing and gear in order to prevent any contact with dirty, possibly-infected water. Items such as goggles, rubber boots and gloves are best for keeping your skin and eyes covered, while a basic face mask can prevent you from breathing in any toxic fumes.

3. Open your windows and utilize fans to air out the obtrusive smell.
While experienced restoration specialists are Here to Help and are prepared to deodorize your home before their job is done, you can help release some of the bad odors by using fans and keeping your windows open throughout the day.

Fire damage

12/11/2019 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler 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 greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types 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. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, 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.
