After a flood

2/28/2022 (Permalink)

What To Do After a Flood

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting
  • Remove and prop up wet upholstery and cushions
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting in order to prevent further water damage
  • Remove art objects and relocate them to a safe, dry place

What NOT To Do After a Flood

  • Don’t leave items on wet surfaces. Instead, move them to dry spaces or hang them outside to dry
  • Don't use your household vacuum to remove water
  • Don't use any items that require electricity, including your television or other household appliances
  • Don't turn on ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet and if the ceiling is sagging in any rooms, move to a safer area

If your pipes leak

The first thing you need to do is shut off the source so that the water stops. It is important to ensure that the water stops in response to turning off the valve. In example, the supply line to the sink has burst. You turn off the valve to stop the water, but what if the water keeps spraying all over??? 

It is not uncommon for old shut off valves to go bad to the point that when you try shutting them off, it doesn't work. If this is the case in your property, you will need to locate the main water valve. This valve is usually located at the water meter for city water. If you have a well, it is typically located by your pressure tank. 

In the event of a water disaster in your home,  you want to limit the amount of water leaking. By locating the source of the leak and shutting off your main water valve, you are well on your way to recovery.

SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro is available 24-7/365 and can be reached at (513) 422-9200.

Water damage

12/15/2021 (Permalink)

The washer and dryer can be the hardest working machine in your home sometimes.  The average American family does about 300 loads of laundry a year!  That is a lot for one machine to go through in a year.  With so much use can come some wear and tear on your washer, which can lead to problems and possibly even water leaking into your home.  There are a couple of things you can do to help keep your washing machine in tip top shape and to help prevent any leaking or water damage to your home.  

  • If your washer is an older machine the hoses can become worn out.  Be sure to check the hoses occasionally to make sure they haven become worn or brittle causing water to leak.  
  • Don’t overload the washing machine.  I know we all love to get as much in there as possible to get the laundry done quicker, but this can cause the washer to overfill and then it can overflow onto the floor or walls.
  • Use the correct amount of detergent.  Adding too much detergent can cause excess suds which can lead to it overflowing out of the machine.  Be sure to read the label and follow the directions of how much detergent you should use for each load.

As with any unwanted water in your home, the quicker you get the water cleaned up the less damage that it will create.  SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro can mitigate any unwanted water in your home.  We are available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. 

Sewer backup

12/15/2021 (Permalink)

When you think of water damage you probably think of standing water from a flood, a burst pipe, or maybe an appliance in your home or business that has a leak and has caused flooding.  You probably don’t think of sewer backup when you think of a source of water damage. Sewer backups can be one of the worst types of water damage to your home or business.  

There are different factors that can cause a sewer backup such as aging pipes, tree roots, and backups or clogs in the main city line.  Sewage can then start coming into your home through drains in the floors of basements, toilets, and even bathtubs. This type of water in your home or business can lead to disease, damage to your walls, floors, and furniture, electrical malfunction, and can eventually lead to mold development.  

As with any water damage, getting it cleaned up quickly and properly is the key to preventing any further damage.  SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro is here to help and can take care of any water damage that your home or business might experience.  Give us a call  (513) 422-9200.

Until help arrives

It is very important to know what actions to take yourself when catastrophe strikes and you're waiting on your area's SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro crew. In some scenarios, taking action and doing what you can do is the difference between the problem being easily managed and it getting worse. I'm going to list a couple "do's and don't's" when it comes to fire and smoke damage. 

One thing that anyone can do in the instance of fire or smoke damage is to limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpet. Another thing you can do is to tape a double layer of cheesecloth over air registers to stop particles of soot from getting in or out of the HVAC system. 

One thing not to do is to attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire, heat or water. Another big thing to keep in mind is to not consume any food or beverages that may have been stored close to fire, heat or water.

Deodorizations

Is there a lingering musty or unpleasant smell in your home or building? Sometimes, it could be hard to pinpoint where exactly it is coming from.

As experts in deodorization, our technicians will identify the source of the odor and completely remove it. We do not just mask the odor and we do not take any shortcuts. The crew will clean off residues and use sprays or foggers to deodorize various surfaces. They are trained to use different equipment and techniques to tackle different situations (ex. air scrubbers, ventilation box fans, ozone generator, photocatalytic oxidizer, etc.)

At the end of the process the technicians will advise you if there is a need to get your carpets professionally cleaned or if you should invest in HVAC filters or an air purifier system.

SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro has the experience and training needed to get rid of any lingering smells. Call us today- (513) 422-9200
