SAFETY Always Comes First!

4/21/2022 (Permalink)

Cutting drywall in PPE PPE known as Personal Protective Equipment is always worn to protect our employees.

Safety always comes first at SERVPRO. A job can only be done correctly if you are prepared for it correctly.

Having the proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is important and always the first step in every job. Working in the restoration industry has potential for injury so it's important to be prepared at all times and protect yourselves in every way possible!

Allen has his PPE on for this mold loss. If there is mold present when cutting into the drywall, the spores can travel and even be inhaled. No one wants to inhale anything other than oxygen so our employees are required to wear masks & protective eye wear. Even if no mold is present, a mask is important to keep from inhaling debris that floats around and can cause health effects.

We care about our employees and customers health so we always make sure everyone has the proper PPE on for each and every job.

Water damage can occur with no warning. Protect your home from a flood in every way you can:

  1. Protect wells from taking safety improvement suggestions from a licensed contractor.
  2. Make sure your yard slopes away from your home to direct water away from it.
  3. Have a plumber install an exterior sewer backflow valve.
  4. Anchor fuel tanks.
  5. Have an electrician raise switches, sockets, circuit breakers, and wiring at least 12 inches above expected flood levels.

For winter (areas that experience snow):

  1. Rain can make snow melt quickly.
  2. Remove snow piled against home.
  3. Seal any cracks or gaps in foundation.
  4. Safely remove snow from roofs.
  5. Clear drains and gutters of debris and assure snow melts away from home.

Smoke and Soot Cleanup

1/7/2022 (Permalink)

Soot along walls from smoke damage. Smoke and Soot Damage Can Cause a Pervasive Odor in Your Escondido Home.

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 Escondido 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. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
