Fires Could Happen in Your Nacogdoches Home in an Instant

2/8/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Fires Could Happen in Your Nacogdoches Home in an Instant The oven had only been left without supervision for no more than 15 minutes.

Leaving your oven on accidently can do more damage than you think.  Leaving the house with your oven on seems like something that most of us have done and will continue to do. A Nacogdoches family just recently had the worst-case scenario happen to them when they had left the oven on and left the house for no more than 15 minutes and it had erupted into flames. Luckily, they came back quickly and were able to stop it with a fire extinguisher. But if they had just simply left the house to go the grocery store and were gone for just 15 min more, their entire home could have been affected. Just remember to double check before leaving your home. Fire damage to your home could be detrimental but the restoration process begins when you call us, SERVPRO. Our representative will ask questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us respond immediately with the appropriate equipment and resources. We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire.

Your Water Heater Flooded your Lufkin Home, Now What? Are Your Walls Wet? How Can You Tell?

Water Damage Your Water Heater Flooded your Lufkin Home, Now What? Are Your Walls Wet? How Can You Tell? SERVPRO uses the right equipment to identify affected materials. SERVPRO will check for the source of moisture in your home or business.

SERVPRO uses the right equipment to identify affected materials. SERVPRO will check for the source of moisture in your home or business. 

Gypsum, aka “drywall,” is a very popular material for use in the construction of homes and offices. The material is noted for its strong fire-resistant qualities. However, drywall is also known to be incredibly susceptible to being damaged by moisture compared to many other building materials.

This is, in part, because drywall is extremely porous, readily absorbing moisture and retaining it. If the moisture content (%MC) of drywall exceeds even 1%, then the drywall can be considered “moisture-compromised” and in need of either drying or removal depending on whether or not mold has begun to grow.

Even greenboard, the “water-resistant” drywall, will be damaged by moisture if it gets past the green, water-resistant paper covering that gives greenboard its name. The majority of greenboard’s water resistance comes from the paper covering, not the drywall itself.

Because of how susceptible drywall is to becoming damaged by even minute amounts of moisture, it’s important to be able to accurately assess the amount of water present in drywall.

When looking for a moisture meter to use for testing drywall, some considerations include:

  • Whether or not the meter has a gypsum scale.
  • The range at which the meter detects moisture—the meter should be able to accurately detect very small amounts of moisture.
  • Length of the pins.
  • Additional scales for other materials—most professionals have to work with more than just drywall, so having a moisture meter with the ability to test other materials using different reading scales is a must.

In many cases, if there is significant moisture in a gypsum board, then there will be obvious external signs of it. For example, a simple visual inspection can be made to spot discolored or visibly crumbling drywall, or a musty odor can indicate a problem with mold growth.

Our representative will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the equipment and resources. We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage. We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property, which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water that is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your business.

We clean all of the restorable items and structures damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. Our professionals are trained to provide sanitizing treatments and to remove odors and deodorize your property.

Restoration is the process of restoring your business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet, or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

So, when the unexpected strikes SERVPRO will be there to make it, “Like it never even happened.”
