Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

With Winter Gone The Rain Is Coming

5/6/2021 (Permalink)

As winter fades away and spring finally arrives, we come to the end of fire season and start flood season. As we all know spring can be eighty degrees one day and forty the next. As you can imagine flood season has an indefinite amount of water claim scenarios. We’ve all had some form of a water/flood interaction, be it a leaky basement wall or a plugged gutter from last fall’s leaves, it
happens. What you do next can be the difference in tens of thousands of dollars.
For example, many chairs common to one’s living room or finished basement have fabrics that,
when wet, will seep and drip water onto the floor and stain. That same fabric if dried too fast with too much heat can become brittle and split. Where that chair was sitting will have stains from the wooden legs. If that carpet gets dried without those stains being removed, those stains are now permanent. The carpet there needs to be kept saturated until proper cleaning solutions can be applied. If that same chair has upholstered buttons and they are not cleaned with our Rusticide #116 solution the oxidation/rust
produced will also seep into fabrics and stain, sometimes permanently. We’re not aiming to completely freak you out; this just shows one example and a few complexities that have to be taken into account. Even if SERVPRO is not on the job we still care about you and your possessions. We are all in this together!
