Ways to help prevent storm damage

8/3/2021 (Permalink)

Storm damage can be a huge hassle, and no one wants to receive storm damage, especially when it is least expected. Although you can get damaged at any time, there are natural ways you can do to prevent storm damage in your home. Here are some simple tips and tricks to ensure less damage.

  • Inspect your roof and chimney.

The roof is the most important part of your house. It is important to check out your roof to make sure you don’t have any damaged, loose, or missing shingles or tiles. Another component on the roof is the chimney. The chimney receives more damage than the roof because it stands taller. Making sure your chimney has no cracks or broken masonry work will help prevent possible leakage.

  • Maintain trees and vegetation.

Having a beautiful lawn with bushes and trees is lovely, but keep in mind that plants and trees can cause damage to your house if not maintained. Make sure to minimize vegetation near utility pipes and make sure roots don’t damage your pipes and water line.

  • Clean gutters and downspouts.

Gutters will help collect all the water from your roof. Over time, your gutters will fill up with leaves, seeds, and other debris causing a blockage. It is important to clean your gutters and downspouts to ensure the water can flow easily.

  • Remember to check your attic.

Most homeowners don’t go into the attic often and signs of water in the attic are not often found early before the damage is too late.  Water damage in the attic can be an environment for mold to grow. 

Summer Season Puff backs | Brookfield, MA

While your furnace or boiler may not be on during the summer season, it is still working. As it will still heat your water, there are still chances of a puff back.

What is a Puffback?

A puff back is typically caused by the two electrodes that usually ignite the furnace or boiler. During the ignition process, the oil will form at the bottom of the chamber, and the next time it ignites, it will cause a puff back, sending smoke and soot throughout your property.

If you experience a puff back or smoke and soot damage has caused damage to your property, call SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County and we will be ready to help restore "Like it Never Even Happened."

When water damage hits your home or business, don’t wait to get it fixed. Even just a small water damage can lead to a larger one in the future. It is best to call right away to get it fixed, to ensure the damage won’t create more problems.

If you decide to wait, water damage can cause you issues for more than a week. These problems include damage to the walls, floors, upholstery, and other belongings. Sooner or later the walls will swell metal surfaces tarnish and furniture will begin to warp.

Enough water damage will create moisture in the air, a perfect hotspot for mold to start developing and later growing and spreading around the place.

Factors of fixing storm flooding in your home.

6/28/2021 (Permalink)

Storm flooding requires urgent attention to prevent mold, structural damage, and bacteria roaming loose. It is important to assess factors, which may vary based on how bad the flooding is.

  • How much water is present

The depth of water standing in your home will determine how much damage it caused and how much insurance it will cover. Water deeper than an inch can cause more structural damage.

  • Category of water

Water can be in the form of sewage, greywater, or black water. Outside water, known as greywater contains microbes while black water contains solid waste.

Different types of smoke damage that can affect your company.

6/24/2021 (Permalink)

When fire damage affects your property, a large amount of smoke damage is leftover by charred flames, causing a lingering effect of smoke. There are four different types of smoke damage that can be caused by fire damage. Fueling materials and different locations.

  • Dry Smoke

Dry smoke is created by fast-burning, high-temperature fires that are typically fueled by paper or wood.

  • Protein Residue

Protein residue is created when organic material evaporates during a low-heat fire. This is common when a cooking mishap causes a blaze in the kitchen.

  • Fuel/Oil residue

When a furnace has a “puff back” where it doesn’t ignite properly and ultimately releases smoke and soot into the surrounding space in the form of a small leak or even minor explosion.

  • Wet Smoke

Wet smoke damage comes from low-heat, smoldering fires, commonly when burning plastic and rubber.

If smoke or fire damage has caused damage to your property, call SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County and we will be ready to help restore your property and needs "Like it never even happened."
