Smoke Damage in your Home

1/21/2020 (Permalink)

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.

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 South Shasta County 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. 

Wet Smoke

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

Dry Smoke

  • 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.

Mold in Your Home

1/21/2020 (Permalink)

mold all over the walls This home had a roof leak that occurred during the storm we had locally, the roof leak was never dealt with, therefor causing substantial mold damage.

If you see visible mold, do not disturb it. You can inadvertently spread the mold infestation throughout your home. Whether it's the slimy black spots on your shower curtain, the fuzzy white patches on your basement floor, household mold is more than unsightly. When mold is disturbed, the mold can release microscopic mold spores which become airborne and can circulate inside your home.

If the right conditions exist, mold will grow.  Those conditions include:

  • Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.   
  • Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
  • Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. 

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation

Are you ready for the storm

1/20/2020 (Permalink)

Although we aren't experiencing a storm at the moment, we need to accept the fact that we live in California and may get a random storm tomorrow. 

The effects of a powerful storm

El Nino did hit us hard the past couple of winters, and we made sure to remain on standby with extra materials in case we were needed. We went out to a job this weekend that had extreme mold due to a leak from past storms. Sometimes, these mold findings aren't made visible for a long time. It's always what you don't see that causes the most damage.

We battle the water and fire damage, as well as creating estimate, conducting inspections, getting additional training, and working out conflicts with insurance companies.  Dedication is our middle name!

Water job details

The roof on this home had been caved and the floor was buckling due to the rain from the storm. SERVPRO technicians went to the home right away, and determined the home could be repaired to preloss condition. If the homeowner had waited any longer, the entire home may have been absolutely soaked! While repairing the home under this condition may not be impossible, other factors may have made repair difficult. The amount of water led to a small mold growth; we removed the mold, and applied an antimicrobial agent to prevent further growth. Part of the floor had to be removed, as seen in this photo.
