Even Minor Flood Damage In Your San Jose Home Requires Our Help

8/13/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO is ready 24/7 to turn around flood damage in homes with our advanced equipment and certified technicians.

Even A Small Amount Of Flood Damage In San Jose Home Needs Pro Assistance

Flood damage in this part of California, fueled by the Guadalupe River and Coyote Creek, frequently results in damage to local homes. Locally heavy storms can also result in flash floods, which leads to groundwater entering a home. We handle this type of water damage as a biohazard as coming into contact with the groundwater can be dangerous for both humans and pets.

When SERVPRO answered a call to clean up flood damage in a San Jose home, we dispatched our emergency response team to the location and found the homeowner previously cleaned up the water but was unhappy due to a pungent odor that remained. He had concerns water remained somewhere in the room. Common secondary issues from inadequate water cleanup are:

    •    Pungent odors
    •    Warped or softened sheetrock
    •    Buckled hardwood flooring
    •    Delaminated tiles
    •    Mold growth

We used our moisture detection equipment and found numerous areas in the room that took on water, including the padding in the carpet. The homeowner dried a portion of the wet carpet, not realizing the padding remained damp. We also found excessive moisture behind the baseboards in part of the room. Luckily, the hardwood baseboards showed no signs of warping. SERVPRO technicians determined with cleaning and disinfection, they had the potential for restoration and reuse.

We used our weighted extractors to push the residual moisture to the surface of the carpet for easy removal. The carpet and padding were a loss and required replacement as groundwater contaminated them, and there was no way to return them to a sanitary standard for reinstallation. Amazingly, the subfloor remained unaffected by the floodwater.

Our air movers made short work of drying the water loss areas in the house, and SERVPRO technicians hand cleaned all the surfaces to disinfect them. Once we completed the room restoration efforts, a slight odor remained. Our certified Odor Control Technicians worked to eradicate the remaining water odor to leave the room fresh and ready for the new carpet installation.

SERVPRO of Campbell is ready 24/7 to turn around flood damage in homes with our advanced equipment and certified technicians we can make any size water loss “Like it never even happened.” Call (408) 371-4001 today!

The Way to San Jose Storm Damage Restoration Is Through SERVPRO

Flood Relief for San Jose Is Just a Green SERVPRO Vehicle Away

Flood Damage Cleanup in San Jose Home

Flood damage is one of the most frequent types of damage and losses average over 8 billion dollars every year. This sobering statistic from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) states a single inch of water averages over $10,000 worth in water loss damages. Saving as much of your home and possessions as possible is dependent on how quickly the cleanup efforts begin. The longer excessive moisture remains in the house, the more chances for softening of building materials, foul odors, and mold.

When SERVPRO cleans up flood damage in a San Jose home, even though we arrive within an hour after the initial call, often the majority of the water has receded and migrated into walls, under flooring and other elements of the structure have been damage. To locate all areas of excessive moisture, we scope the property with various types of detection equipment. We have the ability with our thermal imaging to "look" behind walls.

Standard actions during flood mitigation include:
?    Removal of damaged sheetrock and other water loss items
?    Drilling of weep holes to help with drainage and airflow
?    Organized pack out of undamaged item to clear the worksite
?    Coordination with the adjuster to stay within the coverage parameters

Water extraction takes precise planning and execution because the more moisture we remove upfront, the less time it takes to dry the structure. If the flood in the home is the result of groundwater, many porous objects such as carpet and padding are generally a loss due to the inability to restore them to sanitary levels for reuse.

SERVPRO technicians go through the flood-damaged areas as they clean up debris and remove water to look through items for things that have restoration potential. We either handle it on-site or pack out items to our secure facility for cleaning and deodorization. We document items using the CCIS Contents Claim Inventory Service technology, even on a room by room basis, to make the claims process that much easier.

Flood damage requires fast action. Call SERVPRO of Campbell at (408) 371-4001 as our emergency response teams are available 24/7 to mitigate any amount of water loss in your home, and We're Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Tips for Removing Smoke Odors From San Jose Homes

7/23/2019 (Permalink)

No one likes smoke odors in their home. SERVPRO of Campbell has the know how to remove that smell!

Odors in a San Jose Home from Fire Damage or Smokers Can Be Tough to Mask, But Try These Techniques

There are plenty of reasons to try and rid your home of smoke odors; you have just bought a new home or readying a place to sell to someone else. Most people consider professional damage restoration companies like SERVPRO a "last resort" to handle smoke odors in their home. The truth is that our specialty equipment helps us handle problems that you could not remedy any other way. However, there are some steps you can take to attempt to rid your San Jose residence of smoke smells without employing our services.

Air Fresheners

Most air fresheners cannot effectively combat the massive amount of smoke odors produced during large-scale fire damage to a San Jose home. However, commercial-grade products temporarily mask some smoke smells caused by tobacco use or smaller. We generally recommend using scent-free odor masking products since you may need to use large amounts of them to cover up the smell of smoke, even temporarily. Scented air fresheners can quickly become overbearing when used in these quantities. Sometimes air fresheners cannot effectively mask the smell of smoke in all reaches of your home. You may need to call in SERVPRO technicians to use industrial-grade deodorizing foggers to neutralize the scent.

Fresh Paint

The application of a fresh coat of paint over any walls and materials near the area with smoke smells eliminates some smoke odors. However, even with multiple layers of paint, you cannot be sure that no smoke odors go unmasked without professional treatment. Most of the time, smoke particles often embed themselves in nearby furniture and flooring materials that cannot use paint.

Heavy Cleaning

While some smoke residues can root themselves deep inside walls, ceilings, and furniture, most should lie on or near the surface level in the form of dust particles. A thorough scrubbing of the entire interior area can eliminate most smoke odors without the use of heavy-duty fogging devices. However, the amount of labor required for such intensive cleaning may make a professional odor removal treatment the most cost-effective solution available.

SERVPRO of Campbell is a local provider of fire damage mitigation and restoration services with access to top-of-the-line equipment and training necessary to eliminate smoke odors as wholly and quickly as possible. Call us 24/7 at (408) 371-4001.

When these kinds of problems happen in your home, it is fortunate to know that there is professional help close by who can help.

Reaching out for local Campbell fire cleanup services as swiftly as possible can reduce the overall damages in your bathroom.

We can use a house-made gentle cleaning solution, designed to lift the debris and grime away.

Removing Debris and Residue from Water-Damaged San Jose Homes

6/30/2019 (Permalink)

Flood water can turn into the above, call SERVPRO today.

Don’t let debris be your new wall or lawn decorations.

Cleaning up after water sweeps through your San Jose residence is rarely as straightforward as it might appear. Even with a homeowner’s ability to review the damage to the best of their ability, there are areas out of sight or unconsidered where further damages and effects must get addressed with the appropriate equipment, cleaning products, and practices of trained professionals. Our technicians can quickly determine the full extent of the loss incident in your property and the best approaches to overcome the lingering symptoms and effects to return your home to its original condition.

We understand that many loss incidents hinge on water cleanup for your San Jose residence, to get the home back to its previous condition. With so many layers of effects to address after water damage, our SERVPRO professionals become a wise choice for this recovery. We have years of experience, and this niche of our restoration team has accreditations as both Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) and Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASD) to handle every aspect of cleaning and restoration in your damaged property that could be necessary.

Debris is a common concern after a water loss incident because materials like drywall often get caught in the path of the moving water and this area of your property becomes quickly saturated. Within a day, drywall can swell and degrade, causing it to crumble and break apart. Even with effective recovery efforts by our SERVPRO professionals, protecting and preserving saturated drywall is rarely entirely possible.

The erosion and crumbling of sheetrock can present a need for widespread cleanup in your damaged home. With our moisture detection equipment, our technicians can determine how much of the sheetrock has wicked moisture up from the floor and begin the meticulous process of removing damaged portions of drywall to prevent further irreparable conditions from developing.

We understand how important it is to get mitigation work started right away, especially to lower the amount of cleanup and recovery efforts needed after a water loss incident. You can count on the experience and equipment for our SERVPRO of Campbell professionals to make these emergencies “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (408) 371-4001.

SERVPRO to the Rescue in San Jose Cleanup and Restoration Services

How Professionals Make a Difference by Mitigating Water Damage in San Jose

Homeowners in San Jose, just like those across the rest of the country, spend much time cleaning up minor spills and overflows inside their houses. Water and the mess it can cause is such a constant in most people's lives. It can be hard to distinguish between situations where do-it-yourself cleanup is more than adequate, and where the exposure to permanent harm is not, and the experts should take over the tasks. Understanding the potential risks of inadequately resolved moderate to severe water losses can provide some clarity. By listing the many things, a professional water damage restoration company like SERVPRO of Campbell can do to help, completes the learning curve.

Why Water Damage Concerns: Little Leaks Can Spell Big Trouble

When small leaks and frequent spills near water sources such as faucets, sinks, showers, and tubs, they leave residual moisture on surfaces. Then the building materials nearby often absorb the excess water, including pulling it deeply into cracks and crevices. Over time the repeated water damage can cause deterioration of floors, cabinets, drywall, insulation, and many more fixtures and structural components. Even something as innocuous as a pet tipping over a water bowl repeatedly can cause the floor beneath the bowl to swell and eventually weaken and rot if the water soaks in day after day.

When the water in your San Jose home from a tiny crack in a pipe under a sink or in a wall continually drips, the materials surrounding the leak absorbs the water. Wallboard begins to crumble, and cabinets and flooring start to warp, buckle, or otherwise distort. Wood veneers pull away from their base plywood or particle board because of the water damage. If the leak is on a level over a living space, the ceiling below can show staining, bulging, and crumbling.

Persistent Dampness Invites Mold Growth - Water damage is not only directly destructive to building materials. When damp structures and contents are not entirely dried out, mold growth can take hold and spiral. This side effect of water damage is common when moisture lingers on a non-porous surface or absorbs into a porous material, remaining wet or damp for 24 to 48 hours or more. Mold spores are always present, waiting for the opportunity to absorb a bit of water and start multiplying into expanding mold colonies. Fungi damage organic matter, using it for a food source. This weakens many conventional building materials. Some susceptible individuals can suffer health effects when reacting to the mold spores and the toxins they create during growth. Generally, this secondary water damage can be averted if the water removal is swift and the mold growth never starts.

Water Damage Can Hide in Attics and Foundations in San Jose Properties

Unless converted into living spaces, homeowners might be utterly unaware of water incursions in the uppermost and lowest spaces inside their residences. If your roof has loose or cracked shingles or improperly fastened or missing flashings water works its way in with every passing rain. The growing moisture load can wick down into the main living spaces and cause structural components like rafters and even supporting walls to weaken.

Likewise, water can seep through cracks in a foundation, basement, or crawl space. The water damage can follow heavy rains or after a home sprinkler system oversaturated the soil surrounding your San Jose, CA home. Concrete and cinder blocks are vulnerable to erosion and degradation from the water flow. Water absorbed into these materials eventually can cause them to shift, break down, or fail in their load-bearing responsibilities.

Professional Water Remediation Offers Trained Technicians

At SERVPRO of Campbell, we invest in the highest quality training available for our technicians. Our crews pursue certification as Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT), learning about the concepts involved in water damage, the effects unwanted water has on structural components, and techniques and strategies to dry out structures successfully.

We also support employees who continue their water damage remediation education by certifying as Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASD). This enhancement course offered by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) broadens the SERVPRO team’s knowledge and ensures more positive outcomes for our services.

Company Plus Individual Experience

SERVPRO of Campbell water damage team members share years of experience on the job with our less seasoned technicians, using the training they mastered in real-life settings. We are wise to the ways of water migration, unfazed when staining and dampness present far from the source of a leak. We never stop until we find the spill or leak and all the places the water wandered. Once we map out all affected areas, we use research-based techniques to remove the water and entirely dry out the structural components and cavities testing at higher than normal moisture levels.

High-Efficiency and Innovative Equipment

Because water damage restoration is a cornerstone of SERVPRO of Campbell’s business we invest in heavy duty, commercial grade equipment. Our familiarity with the steps needed to recover from a water loss helps us sort the innovative from the gimmicky when we consider upgrading to state of the art equipment. Having the proper tools for a task always increases the odds of a superior outcome. SERVPRO’s signature green service vehicles consistently stock all the equipment needed for a water damage job, including smaller but essential items like thermal scanners and sensitive moisture sensors and probes.

Pack-Out Service

When a water damage scenario occurs with severe consequences, SERVPRO offers a useful pack-out service option. Contents suffer harm from a water loss as well, and homeowners are often so overwhelmed that they discard items that could be restored by our expert technicians. SERVPRO of Campbell uses the Contents Claim Inventory System (CCIS) to document the items moved to our production facility during a water damage restoration project. We use digital photography, bar coding, and traditional lists to track the evaluation of the items and the cleaning, drying, and restoration process. We can store your belongs off your property until the restoration process has been completed.

Water damage remediation is a top priority for the professional team at SERVPRO of Campbell. Call us with questions and concerns about water losses at (408) 371-4001. Our evaluation leads to a workable plan that limits the long-term harm persistent water damage can do. SERVPRO of Campbell services the areas of Campbell and San Jose.

Did You Know That Bathroom Appliances Can Cause Fire Damage in San Jose?

6/17/2019 (Permalink)

Make sure your bathroom appliances are unplugged between uses.

Bathroom Appliances Gone Haywire Can Lead to Fire Damage in San Jose Apartments

Bathrooms and kitchens in San Jose should have specialized outlets that trip a tiny built-in breaker should a shock hazard develop. These protect people if an appliance should ever get wet by either water splashed on it or through accidental submersion in a sink or tub. Problems can still happen if someone uses one of these electrical items later because water can corrode internal components and cause them to get too hot.

Using curling irons or hair dryers with corroded contacts can leave your San Jose apartment's bathroom scarred by fire damage. Melting plastic can ignite and help spread and strengthen any flames, helping the fire get around the room. Shower curtains can become a path to the ceiling, leaving dense layers of blackened soot. Residents with this kind of damage need professionals like the ones at SERVPRO to get such disasters mitigated, and the area restored "Like it never even happened."

With the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training, SERVPRO's technicians learn how to clean up such areas. Mitigation includes discerning between truly damaged materials that require removal and replacements and those that we can revitalize, saving our customers as much as possible while restoring their property to a safe, livable condition again.

We use several different tools to clean surfaces after fire damage mars their appearance. Dry sponges that pull soot off mirrors and fixtures protect them from the fine lines that ruin the sheen and make achieving a shiny appearance impossible. Waiting to remove soot can leave property owners wanting to replace such items, resulting in lost rental deposits or additional costs related to court-awarded damages. SERVPRO wants to help you recover completely from the consequences of fire damage and with as little stress as possible.

Because smoke travels out of enclosed areas, soot deposits affect a larger area. We clean these extended paces with small, stiff brushes that whisk soot off surfaces, followed by handheld vacuums that sweep the fine particles up. These vacuums have HEPA filters on them, so soot stays inside, incapable of sifting out and landing on your floors.

SERVPRO of Campbell's goal is to provide all our customers with a thorough job, from start to finish, including odor control measures when necessary. Our IICRC-certified teams know how to do the work efficiently, letting you put the fire damage behind you so you can get back to your normal activities. Contact us at (408) 371-4001 if you live in Fremont, Santana Row, or Los Gatos and need our assistance.
