SERVPRO Removes Unseen Damages after a Fire

3/15/2022 (Permalink)

Damages after a Fire Fires can cause a devastating amount of property damage in a short period.

After the flames have been put out and you are left to assess the damage, you may be wondering if anything is salvable. Smoke leaves behind noxious odors, soot blackens surfaces and may contain toxins, and water can result in mold growth. 

Getting back to normal after a devastating house fire is a top priority. SERVPRO is a trusted company in Amarillo with specialized Amarillo fire damage restoration services. We want to let you know how our team of experts removes unseen damages after a fire. 

Common Causes of Residential Fires

Fire in a home can happen for several reasons. Here are some common causes of fires in Texas: 

  • Cooking fires in unattended kitchens
  • Electric short circuits due to overloading of sockets or faulty wiring
  • Keeping flammable items like paint close to heat sources
  • Leaving candles unattended
  • Disposing of cigarettes while they are fully put out 

Types of Fire Damage SERVPRO Removes

Soot, smoke, and water damage are significant concerns after a fire. Soot stains upholstery, carpeting, walls, brickwork, and other belongings. Also, the smoke odor remains a long time after the fire department has left. It can also contain poisonous chemicals. And water damage can cause irreparable damage to photographs, upholstery, and important documents. 

Water Damage

SERVPRO uses specialized equipment to remove water used to extinguish house fires. After that, we use air movers, dehumidifiers, and heating elements to dry the property. This step also prevents mold and mildew growth. 

Smoke damage

Smoke damage cleanup is an essential step in the fire restoration process and should not be skipped. Soot damage often coincides with smoke damage and should be removed by an experienced fabric cleaning technician, if possible. SERVPRO removes smoke damage by cleaning surfaces, fabric, and upholstery. In some cases, it may be necessary to replace your home items or elements like furniture, drywall, and flooring. 

Property Damage

Fires can cause a devastating amount of property damage in a short period. The extent of this damage depends on the fire type and location and speed of emergency response teams.

SERVPRO Fire Restoration Process

What can you expect from SERVPRO’s fire restoration services in Amarillo? This is what our team will do: 

  1. Our specialists conduct a thorough inspection and evaluation to create an action plan.
  2. If necessary, attach tarps to damaged roofs to prevent further water damage.
  3. Use equipment to dry and dehumidify all rooms.
  4. Then, we will use special equipment and technology to remove smoke and soot from walls. 
  5. Clean and sanitize all recoverable structures and items to restore them to their pre-fire condition. 
  6. Then our recovery and restoration services care for minor repairs such as drywall replacement, painting, and new carpet installation. If necessary, we also undertake major repairs, like remodeling different rooms of your home or commercial building.

How Do SERVPRO Professionals Remove Smoke Odor?

2/10/2022 (Permalink)

hand holding a cigarette If you need an odor removal service, you can rely on SERVPRO experts to rid your house of any kind of odor.

Fires top the list of the worst things that could happen to a home. Not only do they destroy the structure and belongings irreversibly, but the supplementary hazards can continue to endanger the property for a long time. 

Stubborn smoke odor is a detrimental consequence of a home fire since it lingers, compromising the indoor air quality. So, in the unfortunate event that your home is a victim of smoke damage, call in expert help from SERVPRO to get rid of the problem quickly and efficiently. 

How Does SERVPRO Efficiently Remove Smoke Odor?

If your house has recently experienced a fire, there will be a smoke odor lingering in your home. However, you don't have to worry about it as our experts will have your back. Wondering how we do it? Here is a little about our process that we would like you to know. 

Our 4-step odor removal process is as follows:

Remove the Source

The most crucial step is the identification of the source of the odor. You can't expect to rid the house of the smell of the smoke without eliminating the source. So, we will thoroughly clean your home and rid it of any debris or contamination. Any carpets, bedding, wood flooring, etc., that have absorbed the smell will also be removed from the premises.

Eliminate Residue From Surfaces

Just removing the source of the odor is not enough. There could be odor-causing residues on the surfaces. So our experts ensure that every residue is removed because even if a bit of it is left behind, it will continue to make the home smell terrible. To do that, SERVPRO professionals will clean the affected surfaces and walls with a deodorizing element. This will ensure that nothing in the room will continue to generate smoke odors.

Re-Create Conditions That Caused the Smoke

We trace the smoke's pattern during the odor removal process to determine how it penetrates your home. This part of the process is crucial if the smoke is from a nearby wildfire and not a home fire. 

Then, we distribute a deodorizer using that information. Finally, we will create deodorizing smoke or fog to remove the odors effectively.

Seal Surfaces 

If any surfaces in your home might still be exposed to the odor, it's time to seal them. If the odor keeps escaping the surface, deodorizers lose effectiveness, and the smell comes back. 

This can also be used as a temporary solution at the onset of the odor removal process so that the odor doesn't travel from one room to another. 

Why Choose SERVPRO for Home Odor Removal?

We use state-of-the-art technology to serve our clients and help them in the time of their need. Homeowners across Texas count on us for:

24/7 Emergency Service

Regardless of the source, smoke odor can penetrate your home without warning. Dealing with the issue early will help you track it down quickly and prevent it from intensifying.  

We want to ensure that you don't have to bear that sickening odor day after day. That's why we offer 24/7 emergency services, so if a severe odor problem lands in your home, you can call us anytime to eliminate it. 

Highly Trained Technicians

All our technicians have relevant experience and skills. They are highly trained individuals and have acquired credentials from organizations like the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). 

Our odor removal staff is also bonded and insured, so you know your home is in good hands.

How Do You Remove a Biohazard?

11/22/2021 (Permalink)

biohazard warning signs Biohazards can be very dangerous to handle and we don’t recommend amateurs remove them.

Biohazards are often quite unpleasant and harmful, which is why we encourage our customers to call for assistance — especially when it comes to Amarillo mold remediation

But in the event that you’re unable to call for professional help, you can always count on the below guide to help you when removing a biohazard.

A Note on Biohazards and Expertise

Before explaining how to remove a biohazard, it’s important that we discuss your level of expertise.

If you aren’t at all experienced with biohazard removal, it is highly advised that you don’t attempt to DIY it. As mentioned above, biohazards can be very dangerous to handle and we don’t recommend amateurs remove them. To get familiar with biohazards, make sure to check out this online appendix from the CDC. 

How Serious is the Threat?

Depending on the severity of the threat, you could possibly attempt to remove the biohazard yourself.

If, for instance, there’s a small area of mold developing in your home, you could attempt to remove it using the proper tools and equipment. But if there’s too much mold covering a single area of your home, you should definitely call an expert. SERVPRO will gladly get rid of the problem with their Amarillo mold remediation services.

Removing the Biohazard

When removing a biohazard, always follow these steps:

Use a Waste Bag

There are waste bags designed for biohazard removal. Rely on these instead of other forms of baggage.

Inspect the Biohazard and Remove

Assess the biohazard and rely on the appropriate tools. If the biohazard is too dangerous to handle or you can’t identify it, it’s best you don’t handle it at all.

When in Doubt, Call the Professionals

One of the best ways to remove a biohazard is to just let a professional handle it. 

It can be difficult to wait for an expert. Fortunately, SERVPRO has 24/7 emergency services on standby and is ready to assist anybody, anytime.

When you need emergency services, call us at (806) 331-4555. Or fill out our online form.

When Your Business in Amarillo is Underwater — Literally!

11/2/2021 (Permalink)

flooded office building At SERVPRO, we understand how difficult it is to deal with flooding caused by mother nature. Our Amarillo water damage restoration services can help!

In 2019, the US suffered three major inland floods. Out of the many states these floods impacted, Texas was the hardest hit, leaving many businesses in Amarillo devastated.

At SERVPRO, we understand how difficult it is to deal with flooding caused by mother nature. Our Amarillo water damage restoration services can help get you out of a water-logged jam. Below, we’ve put together a small to-do list to prepare you for a flooded business.

What to do When a Flood Occurs

Floods, for the most part, are something you can’t avoid. Water from a massive storm or waterline break will likely seep into your business and cause damage. When your business in Amarillo is underwater — literally — you should:

Create an Emergency Plan

Your emergency plan should include an alternate source of power to reduce lost income. It should also include what your employees need to do in the case of a flood (i.e. where to meet up, how to avoid safety risks, etc.).

Train Your Employees

In conjunction with creating an emergency plan, also make sure you train your employees and go over the plan with them long before a flood is in the forecast.

To keep disruptions to a minimum and protect your employees, workers must know what they need to do in the case of a flood. Instruct them on how to protect themselves as well as protect important supplies. Also, make sure they know where to meet in case of dire circumstances.

Protect Your Businesses Information and Supplies

It can be difficult to protect your business information and supplies during a flood, which is why we encourage business owners to create a second copy of crucial documents in a secure cloud. We also encourage business owners to keep electrical supplies and appliances off the ground.

Need Amarillo Water Damage Restoration? Call SERVPRO

Even when you try to protect your business, some damage will occur from flooding. When that happens, call the pros at SERVPRO for Amarillo water damage restoration.

Call us at (806) 331-4555 or fill out our online form for immediate assistance.

SERVPRO is Faster to Any Sized Disaster!

6/21/2021 (Permalink)

Texas panhandle storms arrive with tornadoes, damaging winds, heavy rain, flash flooding, hail, lightning, and in any combination.  Big or small, storms can cause costly damage to your home or business.

Unfortunately for an Amarillo family their home was struck by lightning. The roof was damaged, as was an exterior wall, and the windows in that wall were broken and ruined. The ceiling collapsed, covering the room below in insulation, dirt, and sheetrock.  Light fixtures were ruined, as was some of the more fragile room contents.  Thankfully, no one was harmed as the family was not in the room; however, they did have a ring-side seat of the lightning strike while they ate their evening meal in the adjoining room.  

SERVPRO of West Amarillo responded after receiving the call, cleaned up the debris, and put up plastic barriers in the living space to prevent any more dust or debris from further contaminating the rest of the home.

The affected part of the home was thoroughly cleaned, and no evidence of the devastation in the adjoining rooms could be seen.  Rather “Like it never even happened.”

Water, Fire, and Mitigation

9/21/2020 (Permalink)

If you have mitigation questions, we have answers. Call a professional at 806-331-4555

What is meant by Mitigation?

If you or someone you know has ever suffered a fire or water damage, you have probably heard the term “mitigation” tossed around. 

And, if you’ve heard it tossed around, you’ve probably wondered exactly what it meant, at least in the context of your fire or water damage:

Mitigation is the reduction of something harmful or the reduction of its harmful effects. It may refer to measures taken to reduce the harmful effects of hazards that remain, or to manage harmful incidents that have already occurred. 

What that boils down to is: if your attic catches on fire, and you are left with soot throughout your home, clothes that smell, and an attic full of the charred remains of Christmas décor, you can call SERVPRO of west Amarillo and we’ll make it “Like it never even happened,” for you. Once you call us, we can be on site within 4 hours. 

Mitigation Services SERVPRO of West Amarillo provides:

  • Fire/smoke/soot restoration and clean-up
