Commercial Losses and Mold

1/8/2019 (Permalink)

As not all mold or other microbes in damp indoor environments may be associated with health reactions, some may be according to the Institute of Medicine.  If you have contaminated water in your commercial property SERVPRO of Hayward offers contaminated water response, and your concern and our crews #1 concern is the health and safety of your workers and occupants.  

Microbes found in water damages can multiply and become airborne and spread to clean areas causing cross-contamination.  Some of these microbes include:

Fungi-organisms that digest building materials for food.

Bacteria-single celled organisms living in soil, water, and organic matter.

Viruses-the simplest microbes that can live inside a living body.

When any of these exist time is of the essence, as the excess water and humidity can result in microbes multiplying.  By starting out and properly drying these sometimes harmful microbes can be avoided and not spread.

Please have a restoration plan in place for when an event comes up as such and give SERVPRO of Hayward a call at 715-634-0699.

Trego Smoke and Soot Cleanup

1/3/2019 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Hayward will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
