Frequently Asked Questions: Flooded Basements

Does insurance cover cleaning up my flooded basement after a rainstorm?

Unfortunately, unless you have additional coverages in your insurance policy, flooding in your basement from rain is not covered by insurance. Times where you might be covered is when your sump pumps fails and you have sump pump coverage on your policy, but there are usually limits to how much they will cover. You need to review your policy to determine if you have aby coverage. 

How do you prevent water in basements? 

If your basement frequently floods, you need to take steps for waterproofing. This may include installing a sump pump, french drain system, or waterproofing walls. You should also take steps to make sure water is not accumulating directly outside your home when it rains.

How do you get rid of the musty smell after my basement floods? 

If you have an odor in your basement, there is likely lingering moisture that is causing mold and mildew to grow. This moisture may not be obvious without professional training or moisture detection equipment.

Restoring Fire Damage with a Multi-tiered Approach in Bristol

9/21/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians are trained and experienced in all phases of fire damage restoration for your Bristol home. We are Here to Help.

SERVPRO Has Experienced Fire Cleanup Technicians Just a Phone Call Away

Fires can cause extensive property damage. Often, these situations occur due to malfunctioning electronics, naked sources of flame such as candles and stoves, or issues with an indoor furnace. At SERVPRO, we believe in responding quickly to property emergencies and guarantee to arrive on-site within four hours of notification of loss.

When confronting fire damage in your Bristol home, it is vital to take a multilateral approach. Disasters like this can affect your home in many different ways causing physical damage in the form of charred or burnt materials, cosmetic issues in the form of smoke deposits on surfaces, and odor issues. We ensure our technicians have completed certification in various restoration areas to combat this. Our current areas of expertise include odor control technicians (OCT), water restoration technicians (WRT), and fire & smoke damage restoration technicians (FSRT). Since combusting materials can release toxins into the home environment, our roster also includes health & safety technicians (HST) and lead renovations (RRRP) specialists for older properties. 

Using a multilateral approach is often achieved through stages. First, experienced technicians assess the property and pre-test materials to make informed decisions about salvageable belongings. Next, our team disposes of debris, including the organization of dumpsters or transportation of these materials to a separate waste facility. Once the space is clear of both non-salvageable and salvageable materials, we can begin performing the restoration. Drying any residual moisture from firefighting efforts is essential to combating smells and mitigating against further losses that the interaction of soot with moisture could cause. Cleaning is often performed in two stages. The first stage involves dry cleaning using light vacuum wands and dry sponges, followed by more nuanced cleaning products, including water-based detergents or chemical solvents. We can determine which cleaning products to use based on the type of smoke residue, either wet or dry.

Packing Out Belongings VS. Keeping Possessions On-site

  • The pack-out procedure is usually reserved for severe disasters and involves documenting belongings before transporting them to a separate storage facility.
  • All belongings stored in our climate-controlled warehouses are vetted thoroughly for potential vermin or pests and allocated to a specific area where they remain throughout restoration.
  • Technicians may decide it is more efficient to clean and restore items on site by creating a designated clean room and bringing in portable cleaning equipment.

Cleaning and disposing of items subjected to smoke and soot is the most effective method of odor neutralization in most cases. But sometimes, odors can persist after these stages are complete. SERVPRO has various ways to tackle stubborn, persistent burnt odors in your home. Again, we rely on a multilateral approach that includes masking agents to spray directly onto surfaces, fumigation with ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers, or concentrated odor counteractant pellets. Odor particles are volatile, making finding a singular source of odor challenging and time inefficient. By adopting a multi-tiered approach, we can be confident of resolving an odor issue quickly and ensuring that your home is rid of any unpleasant reminders of the recent event.

Helping to Rid Your Home of Smoke or Burnt Odors

  • Since odors are volatile opening windows and doors to allow air circulation can help to reduce their impact. Additionally, industrial venting fans can further encourage circulation.
  • Smoke odors generally disperse within two to four weeks without any equipment or chemical products making masking agents a useful tool in the interim.
  • Odor perception is enhanced when moisture is present. Dehumidification and drying can help reduce the impact of odors in your home. 

We can help you return your home to a preloss condition. Contact SERVPRO of Bristol for fire damage restoration at (860) 582-3330.

Helping Residents of Bristol Overcome Water Damage

9/21/2022 (Permalink)

You need IICRC-certified technicians for any level of water damage in your Bristol home. Call SERVPRO today for help.

SERVPRO Can Help with Water Removal Following Pipe Leaks or Bursts

Water intrusion events require immediate attention to avoid excessive property damages. Fixtures that directly connect to supply pipes, such as washing machines, showers, and faucets, can result in large quantities of liquid entering the home if they malfunction. SERVPRO is here to help reverse the damages caused by leaks, pipe bursts, and faulty appliances.

The severity of water damage in your Bristol home is determined by the quantity of liquid entering the property and the length of time it remains wet. Moisture contains microbes that can proliferate in your home's warm, humid conditions. The proliferation of microbes leads to stagnation and forces restoration to encompass decontamination, which can be damaging to your home. Porous materials, for example, are particularly susceptible to moisture contaminants and may require demolition with prolonged exposure to stagnant water. Burst pipes can damage your home through the sheer quantity of liquid they release. A broken pipe can release thousands of gallons of water in twenty-four hours. SERVPRO is a licensed service that has the experience to help with contamination issues, flooding from burst pipes, or smaller contained damages relating to liquid moisture.

Entering a flooded part of a property can be dangerous and requires attention to detail and experience. Our technicians wear thick, chemical-resistant gloves, full-body suits, and n-94 masks as part of our personal protective equipment. Steel-capped boots help protect technicians from debris, broken floorboards, exposed nails, and broken glass. Careful attention to slip and trip or electrical hazards from exposed wiring is equally essential. When working in a wet property, our equipment is run through ground circuit fault interrupters to prevent short-circuiting or other malfunctions during the extraction phase. To tackle potential contamination issues, we cut away sections of drywall from the lower portions of the wall and replace them with clean drywall once the area is appropriately disinfected and sanitized to a safe level.

Home Maintenance and Preventing Water Intrusion

  • Checking that pipes are correctly insulating ahead of the winter months can reduce their propensity to split or crack.
  • Clearing gutters from leaves or debris ensure that blockages do not backup causing harm to your home.
  • Maintenance of appliances and hardware such as sump pumps can help to reduce the likelihood of malfunction.

The most effective mitigation tool in a restoration technician's arsenal is a practical understanding of the science of psychrometry. Psychrometry relates to how moisture, air, and materials act together. In a home environment, the practice of psychrometry could be through dehumidification, air movement, or heating. All of these practical techniques help to encourage fast drying through evaporation. However, drying the property as efficiently as possible is a balancing act. Warm air, for example, can hold more moisture than cool air. But once the air is saturated with moisture, the speed of evaporation is significantly reduced. This process is why dehumidifiers are often essential equipment alongside air movers or heating elements when attempting to dry a property. 

The Mitigative Benefits of Correctly Drying a Property

  • Thorough drying of a property can help to reduce secondary damages, including the growth of bacteria, fungi, or viruses.
  • Ensuring that humidity levels remain below 60 grains per pound reduces the chance of vapor damage that condensates inside walls or ceiling cavities.
  • Many materials in a home environment are significantly weaker and more prone to breakage when wet.

The Right Response to Mold Damage for Bristol Residents

9/21/2022 (Permalink)

You know who to call if you find mold in your Bristol home. Contact the professionals at SERVPRO today for mold damage remediation help.

SERVPRO in Bristol Has Expert Mold Remediation Technicians

Microorganisms are a natural part of any indoor environment. However, like fungi, some microbes can proliferate rapidly in parts of the home and become a nuisance. Molds are fungi that produce unpleasant odors, damage decor, and spread quickly from one area to another. If you suspect fungal growth on your property, it is wise to contact microbial remediation professionals as soon as possible.

Remediating mold damage in your Bristol home can be time-consuming and ineffective without the proper training and equipment. Identifying the root cause of a microbial growth issue can be challenging, but ensuring your home makes a full recovery is essential. If you cannot identify the source of the issue, there is a strong chance that the problem returns a few days after cleaning. Microbes have a short life cycle which can see a single spore grow to a full-size colony within 48 to 72 hours. Full-size colonies can produce between 200 and 500 reproductive spores meaning that a minor microbial problem can lead to exponential damage over just a few weeks. Spores can become airborne or travel on clothing, footwear, and belongings. Practicing diligence by avoiding moldy areas of the home or reducing potential airflow can help slow the spread of an infestation. 

One of the core principles that we work toward for remediation technicians is containment. Containment prevents spores from spreading via airways or clothing from one home area to another. Since many of the strategies used to eliminate infestations involve demolishing materials or utilizing abrasive cleaning methods, there is a strong chance of spores becoming airborne during the remediation process. We use common-sense practices, such as changing out of personal protective equipment (PPE) when moving between affected and unaffected areas of the home. Other methods involve more advanced strategies such as placing negative air pressure machines in close vicinity when demolishing drywall. Negative air pressure machines use a vacuum to pull surrounding air into a storage space. These machines are handy at removing airborne spores from the air into a controlled area where they can be disposed of responsibly. 

How to Prevent the Spread of Mold in Your Home

  • Try to reduce foot traffic into rooms with musty odors or visible signs of microbial growth, and always wash hands or parts of you that come into contact with the infestation.
  • Reducing ventilation in areas with infestation by closing doors and windows to block airflow.
  • Avoid disturbing colonies without first placing vital containment protocols that reduce spreading.

Chemical action is becoming an increasingly helpful tool for remediation professionals fighting against microbial growth. There are several categories of chemical agents that, in theory, can reduce growth or destroy microorganisms themselves. Biocides are poisonous substances that, with controlled usage, can eliminate microbes. Common biocides include the herbicides or pesticides used in agricultural maintenance. Anti-microbial agents are also designed to kill microorganisms. The household product bleach is considered an anti-microbial agent. Using chemical agents should be completed sparingly if possible. For example, technicians may take extra care when selecting a chemical action if pets are on the property. Equally, some chemical agents are less effective on wet materials, which should also be considered when attempting to eliminate mold.

Alternatives to Chemical Remediation

  • Dehumidification can be a valuable tool in remediation.
  • SERVPRO utilizes refrigerant (cooling) and desiccant (gel) technologies in dehumidification.
  • Controlled demolition and disposal of infested materials.

Water Removal from Bristol Office Elements and Materials

8/18/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO gives you access to expertly trained water remediation specialists that put vast resources and years of experience to work for you.

The Many Types of Water Removal 

Water removal comes in many forms, especially considering the efforts of our Large Loss recovery team in properties like office buildings. From standing water on the structure's floors to removing moisture from the air, we must approach this restoration from several angles.  

Removing Standing Water

Water removal from Bristol office buildings often initially means the efforts made to eliminate standing water from the property. Pooling can be destructive to sensitive building materials and contents, so extractors like pumps and vacuums play a part in restoring the property early on.

Overwhelmed Wall Assemblies 

The migration of moisture can infiltrate wall systems and saturate materials like drywall. The path of moving water often finds its way into the wall cavities. Even with the metal track framing, drying is critical to prevent permanent damage. SERVPRO must:

  • Dry the structural cavity
  • Repair plumbing
  • Eliminate ruined building materials
  • Prevent mold development

Moisture in the Environment

While drying is a critical element of the restoration needed in the office, it also increases environmental moisture concerns. Evaporation raises the moisture content of the air, and there can be a point where this content plateaus and the drying process stops. Dehumidifiers manage humidity to keep drying measures productive, especially the trailered desiccant unit capable of operating in several office areas.

Saturated Office Carpeting

The carpeting in the office building, often a low-pile installation meant to be easy to clean and relatively cheaper to replace after a few years, can be quickly saturated by standing water. The objective of preserving wet carpets is to remove the trapped moisture as fast as possible with special equipment like wands and weighted extractors. Wands are a powerful attachment for wet vacuums or standalone pumps. 

Several types of water removal services can help office buildings after disasters. With pooling water and absorption concerns, we must work fast to get mitigation started immediately. Our SERVPRO of Bristol team can help when you call (860) 582-3330.

Is Your Bristol Home Ready for Spring Flooding?

8/18/2022 (Permalink)

Spring rains can bring flood damage. You can trust the SERVPRO brand to restore your home.

What to Expect During Bristol Flood Damage Mitigation

At first glance, flood damage can look overwhelming. If there is one positive, the faster you start the cleanup efforts, the more potential for saving building materials and items affected by the excess moisture.

When SERVPRO handles flood damage in Bristol homes, the priority is to identify where the water has affected the home and remove it. Even though our emergency response teams arrive hours after the initial phone call, there is often little to no standing water, which can also be an issue. Drywall is notorious for wicking water, and it can pool behind baseboards and cause secondary damages such as mold and foul odors.

We use different types of moisture detection devices to determine the areas that need to be dried. We certify our SERVPRO technicians in the science of psychrometrics or the study of air and water vapor. The preparation for the drying phase is a detailed process to ensure no extra residual moisture remains. We make flood cuts in the drywall that is retaining water. Generally, our technicians use probes or thermal imaging to determine where the moisture has penetrated and cut several inches above that area to ensure adequate airflow during drying. We set up specific configurations to direct airflow into small spaces, such as behind baseboards, when necessary.

Air movers are more potent than fans and perform a function no regular fan could do. They force air at high speeds across surfaces, and this causes the water vapor to rise where one of our dehumidifying methods captures and expels the moisture. Then, thorough cleaning with our antifungal and disinfectant solutions drastically reduces the potential for mold after the fact.

SERVPRO of Bristol is ready to help you with flood damage cleanup in your home. Call us at (860) 582-3330, and our technicians can be on-site quickly because we are “We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.”

SERVPRO Responds Fast When Broken Appliances Require Water Removal in Bristol

Although storm damage and overland flooding in Bristol grab the headlines, statistics show that most water losses in residential properties are linked to burst pipes or malfunctioning appliances. Just because a leaking water heater or a faulty pump in a washing machine is a commonplace problem does not mean the damage possible is not severe. Hiring a water damage mitigation and remediation company familiar with extracting significant quantities of fluids is the first step.

How Much Water Can Escape from a Broken Appliance?

The need for water removal in your Bristol home after an appliance malfunction is urgent. For example, if you think about the capacity of a traditional tank water heater providing hot water for showers, dishes, laundry, and handwashing for a family, 50 to 75 gallons is typical. A top-loading washing machine uses 40 gallons, while a front-loading machine uses 20. Dishwashers come in lower at 4 to 6 gallons. If the tank, drum, or outside housing ruptures on any of these appliances, that amount of water flows out, creating a substantial mess even if you notice the event immediately.

What Happens if the Appliance Breaks Overnight or When You Are Away?

Most appliances are plumbed directly into a supply line. If the water is not shut off, it continues to flow into the appliance. Water heaters draw from the line in response to the outflow, and the supply water then adds to the gallons already spilled. If a pump continues operating in the clothes or dishwasher, the same additive effect occurs. Suppose no one is at home or near the appliance. In that case, hundreds of gallons of water fill the space of origin and then spread throughout the rest of your home, causing additional water damage issues in Bristol.

Emergency Services

Once safety concerns are addressed, our crews rapidly remove the standing water. If electricity is shut off in your residence, our gas-fueled and submersible pumps avoid delay in our response. After the water level dips below two inches, our truck-mounted heavy-duty extractors also can operate off generators. Team members systematically move through the wet spaces, using wanded attachments to suction liquids. Squeegees push the decreasing quantity of water towards the extractors.

Moisture Detection and Metering

Our technicians use their Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training to sketch out the extent of the water migration using sensitive devices first to locate and then measure the remaining moisture. Thermal imaging also helps detect the presence of trapped water. Moisture data is charted to provide a baseline for the final stage of water removal and structural drying.

Eliminating Trapped Water

The final stages of a water removal job involve evacuating moisture not easily extractable. Two main challenges present:

Releasing Trapped Standing Water

Water can collect in a wide range of building cavities, untouchable by pumps and truck-mounted extractors. When we locate these caches, several strategies permit success:

  • Portable extractors with wand extenders can improve efforts in confined spaces.
  • Controlled demolition such as partial removal of drywall or paneling (flood cuts) or drilled or cut holes release hidden water for removal.

Evaporating Absorbed Moisture from Structures

Our Applied Structural Drying (ASD) technicians determine drying goals based on the moisture data gathered earlier, including moisture levels in similar materials in an unaffected area of your home. We strike a scientifically-based balance of air movement, temperature, and humidity that facilities the movement of moisture from building materials into the air as a vapor. The vapor is then collected and discarded. Equipment operated to achieve the balance and effectuate the removal includes:

  • Air movers
  • Heaters
  • Dehumidifiers

Our crew monitors the process, counting on the homeowner to leave the equipment on and in place to reach the drying goals.
