Flood Damage in New Haven

Our SERVPRO team can help with useful extraction tools to make drying and cleaning efforts more efficient after flooding in your New Haven home.

Flooding can introduce many immediate threats to your New Haven home. Among the most severe and threatening of these, especially in natural flooding scenarios, is standing water. This pooling in areas of your residence can be challenging to remove without the right tools and approaches. However, our SERVPRO professionals can help with multiple options designed to manage this loss scenario quickly.

Despite how destructive flood damage in New Haven homes can be, many homeowners do not recognize the need for professional restorers as quickly as they should in many circumstances. The sooner that our experienced technicians can get to work on removing water and drying the house, the less damaging that migrating water and saturation can become. Mitigation and emergency services like extraction must begin as soon as our team arrives, and we have several approaches. Popular types of extraction tools include:

Pumps – With a submersible end that can generate a prime to pull standing water from a damaged area, these units are capable of moving thousands of gallons from damaged areas over brief periods.

Wet Vacuums – When water depths do not exceed two inches, wet vacuums and their various attachments can help to remove surface water and prepare the property for drying.

Weighted Extraction Tools – Carpeting can absorb high volumes of water before pooling begins on the surface. Weighted extraction units utilize the weight of our technicians to press the top layer and padding into the subflooring. The onboard vacuum removes moisture brought to the surface.

Are Submersible Pumps the Best Choice for Standing Water?

Submersibles are some of the more reliable and powerful tools in our water restoration inventory. The choice in which of these pumps suits the damage the best often falls to the present debris and solids in the standing water. Natural flooding can introduce substantial debris, silt, and other particulates that electric submersible pumps cannot easily pass, but that is more ideal for trash pumps and larger units like the extractor truck in our SERVPRO Green Fleet. Some of the most common choices for extracting substantial flooding in the house include:

Self-Priming Trash Pump - Trash pumps run on gasoline and diesel fuels, which can make them an ideal option where power is already limited, and other restorative devices can use it. These powerful extractors can pass smaller debris with a larger intake/discharge hose.

Electric Submersible Pump - These units are the standard for removing standing clean water in the house. When flooding occurs through breaches in the roof or openings in the house, we can extract thousands of gallons over a brief period with these capable units.

High-Pressure Pump - Similar in function to the electric pumps, high-pressure units can address a greater need for lift and head. These units cannot easily pass debris but can be excellent options for removing flooding in the basement, attic, or other areas that require an extended discharge.

When Do Professional Restorers Use Wet Vacuums?

With a manageable depth of two inches or less, the present water damage is still too considerable for time-efficient drying. Wet vacuums and their various attachments can help to finalize the removal of surface water. While these units can also be capable at greater depths and more substantial losses, when the standing water is enough to support the prime on submersible units, these have more power and a higher volume of output production.

What Are Weighted Extractors?

Water losses can often negatively impact many of the exposed materials in the house, and none can experience more of this damage than the flooring. Carpeting can get hit the worst, as it immediately absorbs migrating water and can become nearly fully saturated before showing pooling water on the surface. With clean water incidents where contamination is not a concern, it is often possible to dry and restore carpeted floors with the use of water removal tools and calculated drying approaches. Weighted extractors can have a role in this recovery, and these include:

    •    Stationary Units
    •    Ride-On Extractors
    •    Large Loss Recovery Tools

Flooding and its damages can spread quickly throughout your residence. Beginning extraction and drying efforts as soon as possible is an effective way to protect your home and its contents from irreparable damage. Give our SERVPRO of New Haven team a call today at (203) 234-1100.

How Do I Get Rid of Burnt Odors From Upholstery?

6/19/2020 (Permalink)

"We can help" Contact SERVPRO any time. Our experts are trained in fire & smoke restoration, odor control, upholstery and fabric cleaning.

SERVPRO Specializes in Fire Damage Odor Removal for Home and Contents.

Why do odors come from upholstery after a fire?

Combusting materials increase air pressure and release chemicals into the atmosphere, which produces burnt odors. It is common for North Haven homeowners to discover that soft furnishings in their homes continue to release malodor after a fire. Upholstery has typical construction of fiber weaves. These weaves are porous, which causes odor particles to lodge inside the fabric. Removing the odor can be challenging because of the diverse range of materials that make up soft furnishings. Some tissues may respond negatively to cleaning methods or solutions and result in visible damage. 

How do you remove odor from upholstery without causing damage?

The advantage of using a professional fire damage restorer in North Haven is that there is less risk of causing visible harm to soft furnishings during cleaning. SERVPRO technicians always conduct pre-tests before applying cleaning solutions directly onto upholstery. Pre-testing involves administering a small amount of the cleaning solution or solvent to a discrete area of the upholstery. After rinsing the solution, technicians inspect the test-area for negative responses. We have a range of cleaning methods for materials that allow us to tailor our approach to any specific item of furniture without causing harm. 

What kind of permanent damage can occur to upholstery from cleaning solutions?

- Discoloration of the fabric or dye bleeding

- Watermarks may occur with non-colorfast fabrics

- Burn marks or wearing away of fibers 

Are chemical agents the only method for restoring fabrics?

We can use chemical agents or mechanical cleaning methods to restore upholstery. Some materials like leather have precise requirements to restore efficiently. Leather butter can help remove discoloration while the leather's resilience makes it well-suited to buffering with a machine. On the other hand, thick fiber upholstery may require a dry emulsifying powder to get rid of soils.

Upholstery can be a challenge to restore without precise method selection. Contact SERVPRO of New Haven at (203) 234-1100.

What is the Safest Way to Restore my Home and Contents after Flood Damage?

5/28/2020 (Permalink)

"flood zone" New Havens Storm damage needs SERVPRO’s tools and reliability.

SERVPRO Offers Nationally Certified Restoration Experts to New Haven Residents with Flood Damage.

What qualifications are needed to restore property flooding in New Haven?

Certifications can help you identify expert local restorers when you do not have time to do thorough research. Our technicians complete their training by receiving nationally recognized qualifications from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certifications (IICRC) body. Flooding can present considerable challenges to even the most experienced practitioners, which is why certifiable quality is essential to sourcing a good restorer. Our roster of technicians for flood damage in your New Haven home include water restorers (WRT,) Applied Structural Drying (ASD) experts, odor control (OCT) and applied microbial remediation (AMRT.) We can also provide specialist stone, masonry and ceramic tile cleaning technicians (SMT) and carpet cleaning technicians (CCT.)

What are the immediate concerns with a flooded property?

- Standing water can exert significant pressure on a structure and need to reduce immediately.

- Stemming water migration can lessen potential damages. 

- Securing a property from unlawful entry and theft

- Waterproofing your home using tarpaulins to prevent further water intrusion

- Bringing down relative humidity to avoid microbial growth issues

- Removing possessions from the reach of floodwaters and placing them in a designated dry room for specific restoration detail

- Acting quickly to control water migration and protecting wall cavities or subfloor from water exposure

How does controlling humidity prevent mold growth?

Micro-organisms like mold need three conditions to grow: food supply, temperature, and moisture. A home is full of potential food for microbes, especially wet fabrics, insulation, or drywall. The relative humidity typically rises in a property with large amounts of water in it due to evaporation. To dry a property, we need to encourage evaporation by increasing the temperature, allowing air to hold more moisture than in cooler conditions. The combination of drying efficiently and preventing microbial growth is a fine balance. SERVPRO technicians take regular measurements of indoor humidity using hygrometers to ensure that mold reproduces slowly during the restoration. Slowing mold growth allows us to focus on drying efficiently without risking an uncontrolled microbial outbreak. 

How can you rid a property of microbes after flood restoration?

Microbes are a natural part of all home environments, which makes removing them impossible. However, microbes are not bothersome unless they reproduce in an uncontrolled environment. Our AMRT technicians can focus solely on preventing mold growth using a combination of chemical agents and drying principles. The most effective precaution against mold growth is to dry the affected area quickly and control humidity levels over night. By working together with ASD technicians, they can prevent an infestation from occurring and restore the property to its normal, sanitary condition.

What steps can you take to control mold growth during flood restoration?

- Dehumidification to maintain indoor humidity below 60 grains (of moisture) per pound (GPP) keeps microbial growth under control. 

- Using biocides or antimicrobial chemicals on high-risk areas to prevent mold from moving through growth stages during the cleanup

- Paying close attention to water migration, dripping or leaking which could cause damp spots and attract mold spores

- Thorough cavity inspection and drying to avoid mold buildup behind walls, floors or ceilings

How can I speed up evaporation in a room without natural ventilation or light?

Water evaporates quicker when there is plenty of dry air in the room. A general rule of thumb for encouraging evaporation is that wet always move to dry. However, the more water that evaporates, the more saturated the surrounding air becomes, reducing drying times. When dealing with a room with lots of residual moisture, evaporation can create a vapor barrier between dry air and the surface, which leads to slow drying. SERVPRO technicians use air-moving equipment to maintain constant air motion through a flooded property. Moving air allows wet surfaces to evaporate into dry air. Combining a heating element increases overall air temperature, which allows it to absorb more evaporated moisture speeding up the drying process. 

When can you start structural or contents restoration for a flooded property?

Once damage mitigation is complete with the property is clean and dry, we can begin to perform a restoration. Restoring a property can involve replacing any building materials that were non-salvageable and as buffering carpets or repainting walls. Our technicians combine the restoration phase with preventive measures that can protect your home against secondary damages. These procedures include using antimicrobial or odor sealing primers on walls and carpets to ensure that you do not incur further costs in the future. 

Taking a property through restoration from start to finish requires organization and qualified restoration professionals. Contact SERVPRO of New Haven at (203) 234-1100.

What Can Water Damage Do to My New Haven Home?

4/29/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO drying equipment being used on water damaged floor We have experience in all types and scenarios of water damage and can restore your home.

Water Infiltration in Your New Haven Home Can Lead to Structural Damage or Mold Growth, So Call SERVPRO for Expert Water Cleanup! 

Once water unexpectedly seeps into your New Haven home, safety and prompt action are crucial. All of your interior belongings are important to you, but our team at SERVPRO ensures that your family is safe from structural damage and the potential for mold and mildew growth. Something as slight as a leaky pipe can bring about hidden dangers to your electrical system, so we leave no stone unturned during restoration efforts. 

Why Call for Professional New Haven Water Restoration?

Trained professionals handle many jobs, including water cleanup in New Haven. Even in a clean water situation where a leak or emergency burst came from a faulty pipe, the chances of water migrating to areas not visible are incredibly high. Trained water restoration technicians (WRT) have the right equipment to get everything cleaned up as well as moisture detection tools to locate areas where the water may have traveled. 

How Can I Tell the Extent of the Damage in New Haven? 

Our trained technicians follow detailed guidelines on how to classify water loss situations. The four main classifications we use to categorize jobs include: 

  • Class 1:This is a situation where a small area is impacted and may require little or no water extraction.
  • Class 2:This situation impacts at least an entire room and may have up to 24 inches of water saturation.
  • Class 3:This is a water loss that impacts a much larger area, often reaching more than one floor, which calls for extensive restoration efforts.
  • Class 4:This type of situation generally includes specialized drying techniques that will not usually fall within the other classifications. 

If your water loss falls within Class 1, you need to know that there can still be a significant amount of damage. For example, if you have a broken pipe located on the second floor of your home, and it goes unaddressed, it may lead to Class 3 damage, call for more involved cleaning, and replace walls, ceilings, and floors. 

What if I Have a Slow Leak in New Haven That I Just Noticed? 

Any slow leaking pipe in New Haven can start to cause significant damage after just a short period. Even though the water coming from the supply line is clean, this delay in mitigation creates a moist environment that turns into a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. This bacteria turns the Category 1 water or Class 1 situation into contaminated water, which calls for specialized cleaning and disinfection using EPA-registered cleaning agents. 

How Does Your Team Address Water Cleanup in New Haven? 

Several factors determine how we proceed with the cleanup and drying of your interior when you call us for water restoration services including: 

  • The type of water that has invaded your home
  • The overall size of the area that has been affected
  • The types of building materials involved 

Clean water is always easier to clean up than a black water situation. With a burst pipe, the job could be as simple as pipe repair and drying the impacted area. Prompt action within 24 to 48 hours helps to prevent bacteria and mold from growing. 

We also consider all the materials impacted inside the water loss zone: 

  • If carpeting is the only material impacted, restoration could be completed quickly.
  • If insulation, drywall or framing is water damaged, the restoration efforts may take up to 10 days or longer from start to finish. 

SERVPRO likes to remind all water restoration clients that each situation is different. We take the time to assess each job carefully and formulate a plan for prompt water extraction using tools that our Green Fleet comes equipped with, including: 

  • Truck-mounted water extractors
  • Submersible pumps
  • Wet/dry vacuums, and a variety of other tools 

What Items in My New Haven Home Are Not Salvageable? 

It is our goal to preserve as many of your essential possessions as we can. Not all items can are salvageable after a water loss, including: 

  • Wood that has been fully saturated
  • Food items touched by water
  • Supplements and medications
  • Personal hygiene items touched by water
  • Anything that presents with mold growth 

Once we eliminate standing water within your home's loss zone, our skilled technicians set up industrial fans, air movers, and dehumidifiers to pull moisture from the air. Moisture sensor technology and thermal imaging cameras allow us to locate any areas that need more attention to ensure thorough drying. After everything is deemed dry, we then sanitize and clean anything that has been in contact with the water. 

SERVPRO thoroughly documents everything that goes into the water restoration at your home. Not every water damage incident is equal in the eyes of many insurance companies. If the damage seems to be due to a lack of intervention on your part, you may have issues with insurance not covering all items. Working with insurance is why it is always better to call in the help of IICRC-certified technicians to get the project wrapped quickly and efficiently to ensure all bases are covered. 

SERVPRO of New Haven is here to help with all of your water cleanup needs, 24/7. Give us a phone call at (203) 234-1100, and we make it "Like it never even happened."
