Who Can Help When I Cannot Get Rid of the Smoky Odors After a House Fire?

Westwood Residents Rely on SERVPRO to Offer Cutting-Edge Fire Damage Odor Resolution

The job of cleaning up fire damage residues is far from easy, but it eventually completes with or without the assistance of an expert disaster response company. Surfaces are clean, appliances work safely, personal possessions are cleared of corrosion and set back in place, clothing is laundered, and furniture is ready for your family to gather. As you settle back into a semblance of normalcy in your Westwood home, one fire loss related problem endures. Malodors are present despite all the cleaning and repairs. The quiet enjoyment of your home is impossible to sustain.

Is the Only Answer to Persistent Fire Damage Odor an Air Freshener?

The internet marketplaces and shelves at your local hardware or grocery store line up perfuming or masking agents as an answer to tough odors following fire damage in Westwood. Sprays, deodorant blocks, essential oils, wax melts, fabric wicks, absorbent clays, and more claim to solve your odor problem. Although we may choose briefly to employ professional masking agents as one tool, our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained managers and technicians also have other strategies that are longer lasting or permanent solutions. Masking distracts from the foul smell, but it does not eliminate it, and its temporary nature means reapplication of the products may be necessary.

How Are Odors Linked to Fire Damage Mitigation and Remediation in General?

Odors are created during combustion. As materials burn, many chemical changes occur in reaction to the heat, oxygen level, and air pressure. Combustion unleashes toxic residues, vapors, and liquids, all of which can carry distinctly unpleasant smells. Soot particles are tiny bits of potentially hazardous and unpleasantly scented and incompletely combusted plastic, textiles, wood, food, grease, paper, and more. They float on air currents and settle on all surfaces and contents inside your home. Sometimes they get sucked into HVAC systems. Basic deodorization protocols learned and used by SERVPRO technicians during IICRC coursework recognize the link between debris and residues and odors, recommending the following multi-step protocol to work toward odor elimination:

First, remove the odor source.

If the charred debris and waste are gone, they carry the odor out of your home. Checking under and behind fixtures and furniture can reveal debris missed. When an area of a room or hall is particularly smelly, removing a portion of drywall might show burned framing, insulation, or other materials that must be removed to eliminate odors.

Second, thoroughly clean surfaces coated in the odor-bearing soots (check the entire house--these residues drift).

If the soot left behind is cleaned with appropriate products, tools, and methods, the bulk of the odors is removed as well. Be sure the interiors and tops of cabinets receive a cleaning, as well as hidden surfaces such as the top of fan blades, woodwork. Replace HVAC filters.

Third, if smells persist despite disposal and cleaning, recreate the environment present during the fire and odor penetration and apply deodorizers in the sam way.

The heat and smoke of a fire can be recreated by thermal fogging, where a heated chamber breaks down the deodorant into smaller particles that seek out, pair with, and neutralize soots, both airborne and settled.

Fourth, consider sealing surfaces that absorbed malodors.

Sealing can help in extraordinary situations like HVAC systems and attics, vaulted, or otherwise inaccessible spaces where surface cleaning is impossible. Broadcast sprayers propel sealants onto these hard to reach surfaces where they keep the malodorous vapors from leaching into the air.

Are Any Other Options Available to Eliminate Odors?

We continuously train our employees and research unique and innovative improvements in odor-elimination technology. When we find effective options that we can use safely, we add them to our arsenal of odor elimination tools.

Ozone MachinesUsed with care, usually in small, contained areas or even off-site, ozone machines can remove odors from furniture and other items. Ozone cannot be used around pets or people, limiting its application as a whole-house remedy. 

Hydroxyl Generators

These machines produce molecules that seek out the odor-bearing particles. A chemical reaction occurs that alters the soot at a molecular level, neutralizing the smell. The operation of a hydroxyl generator does not put humans or pets at risk.

Enzymatic Treatments

Some products are available that break down organic-based malodors using enzymes. Often used for fabrics, they can solve odor problems with protein-based residues.

What Is Better? An Open or Closed Drying System After a Water Leak in your Paramus home?

5/16/2020 (Permalink)

water damage caused by storm We make it, “Like it never even happened.”

The Paramus Restoration Team at SERVPRO Scopes the Damage and Determines the Best Drying System for Your Home

After a water leak, one of the key factors in returning your Paramus home to preloss condition is adequately drying surfaces and removing moisture from the air. Without a dry environment, further damage may occur, such as mold infestations or long-term structural damage.

What Factors go Into Choosing an Open or Closed Drying System?

SERVPRO Water Damage Specialists Consider Weather and Other External Factors
With any water damage in Paramus, there are several external factors to consider, such as the time of year and the weather outside your home. The specific location and security of your home are other deciding factors. For an open drying system, consistent weather is crucial.

What is an Open Drying System?

    •    Open drying systems exchange the air from inside the home with air from the outside.
    •    Air is constantly warm and dry for success with this system.
    •    Outside humidity levels are 20 fewer grains per pound (gpp) than indoor levels.

What is a Closed Drying System?

    •    Closed systems use dehumidification equipment to pull moisture from the air.
    •    Technicians control humidity levels with dehumidifiers and air moving equipment.
    •    Portions of the home may be sectioned off to form drying chambers.

Which System Works the Best?

Most often, SERVPRO technicians choose a closed system over the open drying system. It's far easier to control, especially in a colder, variable climate like that of New Jersey's. An open drying system may pose security issues as windows are open and unlocked. Closed systems also facilitate closing off one area of the home to concentrate drying efforts in just one space.

A Pipe Burst and My Paramus Home Has a Lot of Water, Whom Should I Call to Protect My Property?

4/25/2020 (Permalink)

damage caused by water leakage If you are dealing with water damage in your house, contact SERVPRO and ask about our restoration services.

SERVPRO Can Offer Fast Service to Mitigate the Water Damage in Your Paramus Home

Seeing water damage in your home can be a traumatic experience. If it happens at odd hours of the night, it is disconcerting, and you might be unsure of what to do. Thankfully, you can call SERVPRO because we offer restoration services on a 24-hour basis. We have a licensed, insured, and certified crew. Upon arrival at your house, our crew can survey the destruction and address your concerns to prevent further damage.

What type of damage does water cause?
Our technicians can handle any magnitude of water damage in your Paramus residence. This includes an influx of water in your house because of water heater leaks, broken pipes, and overflowing tubs, among other mishaps. Water can pool in a specific room of your home, and it can ruin wood floors, carpets, insulation drywall, furnishings, and wood beams.

Water can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes and microorganisms like fungi and bacteria. The longer water remains standing in your house, the more challenging it is to clean up. Our SERVPRO team strives to arrive at an affected property within four hours, ready to start the remediation process. We also eliminate the stress of filing a claim. Our goal is to make the entire repair and claim process fast and as pain-free as possible.

What do you do to deal with water damage in a house?
Before we perform remedial work, our team makes sure that the property is safe to entre and read for cleanup and repair. Our team does the following things:

    •    Conducts a damp surface check and requests your permission to deal with your insurance company directly.
    •    Prepares a comprehensive report that outlines remedial work and expenses.
    •    Meets with your insurance loss adjuster to go through the report and agree on the work that we need to complete.
    •    Pumps out the standing water using pumps
    •    Clears the affected rooms of your water damaged building materials and contents
    •    We set up drying equipment.

Which equipment does SERVPRO use to extract water
We use state of the art water extraction equipment to remove the standing water. For instance, we can use portable extractors and carpet wands to remove it. Portable extractors are flexible since restorers can take it into most areas of a building. They are ideal for removing water from high rise buildings. They require power to operate, and it can come from the building or a generator. Carpet wands, on the other hand, are ideal for extracting water from glue-down carpets. They can also effectively remove the water that remains on the surface of carpeting after we have used a stationary tool. Removing water helps reduce secondary destruction.

Is it necessary to remove the carpet?
A carpet easily attracts and retains microscopic organisms and moisture. This combination almost provides laboratory conditions for microbial growth that produces an odor. When a carpet becomes damp, mold growth can occur within 24 to 48 hours. During this time, professionals need to intervene with specialized water extraction and decontamination tools to avert mold infestation. It is not always necessary to remove the carpet in a category once water loss. However, there are several reasons why your carpet may be unsalvageable. They include:

    •    Loss of adhesion, which can happen because of the age of the carpet or prolonged exposure to water.
    •    Delamination – This is when the backing separates from the carpet fibers.
    •    Permanent stains.
    •    Carpeting covers wood flooring- We can remove it to salvage the wood floor.
    •    If mold has contaminated carpeting and it is not responding to professional smell removal techniques.

How long does it take to dry a home?
Several factors determine the drying time, including the type of building materials water has affected, the duration that the water pooled in the home, and weather conditions. Another factor that determines drying time is the techniques and equipment that restorers use to dry affected structures and contents.

Our SERVPRO team can mitigate the overall destruction and salvage some of your belongings using proven techniques like dehumidification. Dehumidification is necessary because moisture in your home can be as destructive as pooling water. Humid air can ruin floors, furniture, walls, and other structural components in your house. Dehumidification reduces moisture. It mitigates damage to a home and prevents mold infestation. We can use Low Grain Refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers because they provide maximum power in eliminating moisture from the air. These dehumidifiers differ from conventional refrigerant dehumidifiers because they have a pre-cooling component. LGRs re-cool the air before it gets to the evaporator coils. This leads to more condensation, which forms on the coils in the machines. Therefore, more moisture is pumped out, and less moisture is left in the air that returns to a room.

How do I know that my house is dry?
The proper way to determine if affected areas are dry is testing with specialized equipment. We consistently monitor and evaluate the drying process to determine when drying is complete. For instance, our team can use infrared cameras to inspect and monitor the moisture in building materials. When beginning a water damage restoration project, these cameras help our restorers to evaluate the extent of moisture quickly. Infrared cameras are great for showing how water traveled in a building. When ending the water restoration project, they offer excellent evidence that the property is dry. Your property may take about 3 to 5 days or more to dry based on the prevailing conditions. Once dry, we can issue you with a certificate of dryness, air quality, and hygiene.

If you are dealing with water damage in your house, contact SERVPRO of Paramus and ask about our restoration services. You can reach us at (201) 445-5588 to schedule a visit.

4/19/2020 (Permalink)

water damaged ceiling tiles in office When ceiling tiles or other parts of your office sustain water damage, contact Team SERVPRO. We respond quickly to your emergency call.

SERVPRO Can Set Up Equipment To Dry Out Your Various Building Materials In Your Paramus Office

Office complexes that sit on the lower level of a building risk severe problems in the case of a pipe breaking above them. However, it is possible to dry out and restore several of the wet items in your office instead of removing and replacing everything that got wet.

How Do I Know What Items In My Office Got Affected?

Finding all of the water damage inside your Paramus office can be tricky. Our SERVPRO technicians can utilize a wide array of advanced technology in the form of moisture sensors and other tools to help us find where the liquid went and what it contacted. During our initial inspection, we can take moisture readings of affected and unaffected areas of your office so we can find out how wet your contents and building materials got.

How Does The Drying Process Start?

  • Initial Inspection: We find out where the moisture traveled and figure out which items got wet.
  • Safety Assessment: We walk through your office building and look for any potential safety hazards, such as fallen ceiling tiles.
  • Calculations: We take the results from our tests and determine the type of equipment to use.
  • Equipment Setup: We strategically place tools like air movers and dehumidifiers to speed up the natural drying process.

How Can You Tell When To Remove The Drying Equipment?

  • First, establish a drying goal by testing unaffected items that are similar to the wet ones.
  • Once the equipment is up and running, we return to your office to take readings that tell us how well the drying efforts are working.
  • When moisture levels reach the drying goal, we can then remove all of our equipment.

When you find everything wet inside your office, including your ceilings, call SERVPRO of Paramus at (201) 445-5588. We are available 24/7, and we also service Hillsdale and Woodcliff Lake.

I live in Paramus, How do I Tackle Cleaning Up After a Grease Fire?

SERVPRO Technicians Use Specialized Cleaning Techniques for Fire Damage Cleanup

After a fire, homeowners are faced with many challenges before their lives can return to normal. One of these challenges is the extensive cleanup required after a grease fire in the kitchen. Although it may be a small fire, smoke residue and odor tends to permeate throughout the home.

What techniques do SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians use for Fire-Damaged Paramus Homes?

1) Finding and Identifying: We locate the smoke residues in the impacted areas to determine the type of residue and the best way to clean it and then remove it.

2) Vacuum: Some residue has loose, dry carbon particles, requiring vacuum removal rather than wet removal that grinds the residue further into the surface.

3) Dissolve: For residues that are not dry, technicians use professional cleaning products to dissolve the residue. This loosens the bond to the surface and can then be rinsed away or extracted using a portable extraction device.

For cleanup assistance after fire damage, contact SERVPRO of Paramus at (201) 445-5588.

We Remove Wood Trim to Dry Water Damage in Paramus

3/20/2020 (Permalink)

water damaged floor; flooring removed We often remove trim to ensure drying of flooring and drywall is complete.

Why We Remove Wood Trim After Water Damage in Paramus Homes 

When you think about the damage that water losses can do to Paramus homes, many property owners do not consider construction materials like wood trim. While the removal of drywall and flooring might feel more significant, there are several reasons why removing baseboards and other accentuating woodwork might benefit the drying process and make water losses “Like it never even happened.” 

Water damage to Paramus homes requires focused attention and drying efforts by our SERVPRO professionals. We have skilled technicians that can utilize efficient drying and extraction tools to manage water losses and their effects shortly after these emergencies take place. Wood trim might feel insignificant to the drying and recovery process of your home, but there are many ways that this material can have a vital role in the work that must get done. 

Damaged Trim  

One of the most direct reasons that our SERVPRO team must remove wood trim from water damaged areas in your home is that the material has suffered from exposure. Standing water, for example, often directly absorbs into these particleboard trim pieces. This exposure can quickly swell and distort these installed materials, making it necessary to remove them to prevent the facilitation of mold growth or seepage into drywall surfaces behind the trim. Our in-house contractors can reinstall this baseboard and removed portions of the wallboard when drying completes. 

Access for Drying Purposes 

Removing the baseboard can often be beneficial when structural cavities have become compromised by migrating water. Preventing saturation to wood framing and insulation can often be a challenge without removing portions of drywall and the wood trim. Utilizing positive pressure systems to force heated air into wall cavities can help with evaporative drying, and can get done through multiple hoses in drilled holes behind the removed baseboard. Once the area gets dried, our professionals can patch the drilled holes and replace the trim. 

There are reasons to remove wood trim baseboards to benefit the drying process in your home. With positive pressure systems like our Injecti-Dry system and controlled demolition, we can restore and dry damaged properties quickly and thoroughly. Give our SERVPRO of Paramus team a call to help anytime at (201) 445-5588.

Removing Commercial Water Damage from a Paramus Tech Repair Shop

Many businesses, particularly small ones, do not have adequate insurance for when disasters occur. An estimated 75% of businesses in the United States are underinsured, while a staggering 40% of small business owners are entirely uninsured. While disasters can be incredibly costly, all-in-one disaster cleanup pros that specialize in everything from cleanup to reconstruction can help you save time and money.

Your local team also offers licensed general contracting services (#13VH001305854800).

Dealing With Water-Damaged Documents
While electronic restoration experts may be well aware not to turn on water-saturated electronics, paper documents, such as insurance papers, tax necessities, and invoices, need a different kind of care. Papers are fragile, especially after moisture exposure, and require delicate care and attention during the mitigation process to minimize damage.

    •    If your office area has water damage, take care to remove essential papers from the situation as soon as you are able.
    •    Freeze documents to prevent further warping of paper or spreading of ink.
    •    Never separate wet papers to minimize the risk of tearing.
    •    If your facility handles photographs or film negatives, do not touch them. Carefully air-dry the materials and do not freeze them.
    •    Do not aim fans directly at papers to dry them.

SERVPRO Saves Your Office
This team's cleaning and drying methods address moisture contents in a wide array of surfaces with careful monitoring. Furniture can be removed, cleaned, and dried to minimize the risk of secondary damages to your possessions. SERVPRO can freeze your documents while evaluating them to determine the best course of action for cleaning. Sublimation is preferred for drying papers because it prevents liquid water from warping the material further. SERVPRO technicians can also make electronic copies of your documents so that you have access to them regardless of their physical condition.

We Have The Proper Techniques To Restore Your Paramus Home After A Flood

3/4/2020 (Permalink)

Common Questions When Paramus Homes Need Flood Damage Cleanup

Flood damage needs fast action. Even though SERVPRO techs get to each loss-site quickly, often in the four hours or less it takes them to come, much of the water has either receded into the walls or flooring.

Homeowners have questions about flood damage in their Paramus properties. That following are some of the most common situations that SERVPRO technicians encounter.

Should I Clean Up the Water Before SERVPRO Arrives?

It is fine to put down towels and rags to help absorb the water, however, until the techs get to the premises and test the water. Also, if there is any danger of slip and fall accidents, close off doors to the loss area in the home and wait for help to get there.

Does Carpet Require Removal?

If the carpet has floodwater, it usually requires disposal as a biohazard. The reason for this is because groundwater has the potential to contain a host of contaminants. When SERVPRO technicians work on flood damage, they wear protective clothing and commonly set up containment around the loss area to stop cross-contamination to other areas of the home.

Why is Sheetrock Cut Away From the Floor Up?

This is a controlled demolition technique known as "flood cuts." When sheetrock wicks water, it has no restoration potential. The technicians use their moisture detection equipment to measure several inches above the waterline and cut away the damaged portion of the building materials. This is a clean-cut that leaves the wall open for drying and makes repairs fast and easy. When the restoration services complete, the techs have a general contractor license #13VH001305854800 and can perform any necessary repairs to bring the house to its pre-flood condition.

Why Did Mold Grow on the Walls So Quickly?

After a water loss in a home, the interior humidity levels go up. As airborne mold spores are present indoors and outdoors, when they encounter these favorable conditions, they germinate and begin to spread rapidly. The techs use professional drying equipment and monitor the process to ensure the ambient humidity gets quickly lowered. Any existing mold growth also gets addressed, and treatments such as antimicrobial cleaners and sealants.

SERVPRO of Paramus at (201) 445-5588 cleans up flood damage of any size in properties and makes the water loss in the homes "Like it never even happened."

Leaking Refrigerator We know more than just the basics when it comes to your Paramus water damage.

Faulty Appliances Can Cause Water Damage In Paramus Homes

Whether it is from a small pipe leak or appliance failure, water damage impacts a staggering 1 in 50 homeowners on average each year. On top of that, claims can cost anywhere from hundreds to tens of thousands of dollars in damages. Many water-related disasters go unnoticed because they start in hard-to-reach areas like leaky supply lines or behind wall cavities. 

If your Paramus residence requires water damage removal due to a kitchen appliance failure, SERVPRO technicians can restore your home to a preloss condition. The focus during the cleanup process is always on minimizing loss while safely salvaging items when it is feasible to do so. SERVPRO is also licensed to offer general contracting services to further repair your home after a disaster (license #13VH001305854800).

SERVPRO's Commitment to Education

SERVPRO technicians, staff, and franchise owners alike receive thorough education and training in fire, water, and mold damage mitigation and remediation, as well as self-paced online learning opportunities to expand their knowledge. SERVPRO techniques and equipment rely on consistent adherence to IICRC standards as well as accurate measurement and calculation to achieve the desired effect. You can rest assured that these technicians know everything from calculating the number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home to the ideal humidity of water-affected materials in your structure.

SERVPRO Takes Care of Water Damage

After a refrigerator leak, technicians can address moisture on walls and flooring with portable, back-mounted extractors. If you have vinyl flooring in your kitchen, it is possible that some of the water-exposed tiles may have delaminated and may require replacement. If there is moisture inside the walls, technicians can drill holes to extract moisture and facilitate drying. Infrared cameras can be used to determine the amount of moisture in walls and under flooring. 

Air movers and dehumidifiers are carefully placed to address moisture, and polyethylene drying chambers can be constructed to accelerate the process in a contained space. This measure is especially crucial in homes with open floor plans, as too much open space can reduce the efficiency of drying. 

SERVPRO of Paramus can ensure that your home looks, "Like it never even happened." If your home suffers a disaster, call (201) 445-5588.
