wildfire smoke Call us at 530-241-2424 and get your free estimate today!

Not everyone has the same sensitivity to wildfire smoke, but over all it is a good idea to avoid breathing smoke if you can prevent it. AirNow, a division of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), states that it is important to limit your exposure to smoke. Even more so if you are at increased risk for particle-related health effects.

When it comes to wildfires, residents and business get blanketed with a layer of smoke and soot. Soot can penetrate HVAC systems, even when they are sealed properly, and can be particularly dangerous since it may contain chemicals, acids, metal, and other harmful material that pass through the air. Simply replacing your furnace filters is not sufficient to fight the effects on your indoor air quality due to soot already entering the inside of your HVAC system.

Your best bet to fight unhealthy air and unwanted smells will be to get your air ducts cleaned by a professional. And here at SERVPRO of South Shasta County our qualified professionals can ensure the job gets done right.

Wildfire Smoke Damage and Restoration

8/13/2021 (Permalink)

smoke damage Contact us today at: 530-241-2424 Here to Help® and Ready to Respond

After a fire/wildfire affects your home or business, the damage done can be more than what’s directly burnt by the fire. The smoke that resides often causes several problems down the line.  

Smoke damage is considered anything that is negatively impacted when it is covered by smoke. This smoke often results in a nasty smell and in worse cases can cause consequential damage to the structural integrity of your building. If your home or business was exposed to fire/wildfire smoke it is important to have your contents properly inspected, tested, treated, and restored.

Here is a checklist that will help you identify and document smoke damage to backup your insurance claim:

-Document any damage that you can visually find. Take pictures.

-Work with your insurance and allow them to properly inspect your building. These inspections and estimates will be important.

-Allow the restoration process to begin and do not hesitate to ask questions.

SERVPRO of South Shasta County has years of experience and knowledge in smoke damage restoration. We have the specialists and the tools to properly inspect and restore your home and or place of business.

Mold in your Air Ducts?

4/28/2021 (Permalink)

mold air ducts Call 530-241-2424 today so your Air Ducts can get a proper cleaning.

Mold is one of the most crucial issues when it comes to vents and air ducts.  When condensation is allowed to build up, or water gets into your vents, then that moisture will remain and collect bacteria. If over time your air ducts are not thoroughly cleaned and maintained than that moisture will begin to grow mold and mildew.

The first signs of mold will usually be an unpleasant, mildewy stench and ultimately overtime certain molds will travel into living spaces and cause health effects.

SERVPRO of South Shasta County is here to help you identify the different types of mold ahead of time so it can be stopped before it spreads to other areas of your property. After a proper cleaning of your air ducts, we will also offer a professional sanitizing and deodorizing service so that your system stays clean.

24/7 services SERVPRO of South Shasta County Responds 24/7 to all your emergency water disasters. Call 530-241-2424 for your Free inspection and Estimate.

Category 1—Clean Water

Category 1 water damage is water damage from broken pipes, overflowing sink, or rainwater. Health risks associated with category 1 water damage is low, provided, you respond to the situation in less than 48 hours.

Category 1 water damage if left untreated for more than 48 hours gets exposed to different contaminants which can turn it into category 2 water damage.

Category 2--Greywater

Some common sources of greywater are equipment discharges, chemical wastes like detergent, laundry, and soap. Category 2 water damage can pose mild to severe contamination risks. Greywater can promote microbial growth and the severity of the condition usually escalates with time. Both direct and indirect exposure to greywater damage can affect your personal health and property.

Category 3--Blackwater

Waters from sewers or water containing grease, oil, urine, etc are ideal examples of black water. Presumably, this water type hoards bacteria, viruses, and other toxic allergens, which makes it contagious.

It is mandatory to exercise special caution when dealing with black water.

If you have any questions regarding water damage. Call SERVPRO of South Shasta County. We will ensure a safe and stress free experience.

The Importance of IICRC Certification in the Restoration Industry

12/16/2019 (Permalink)

What is the IICRC Cert Call us at 530-241-2424 for restoration/mitigation

IICRC Certification

Restoration industry standards are set by the Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification Board. It is a non-profit group overseeing the qualification of the restoration, remediation and cleaning trade. When a technician obtains a program mitigation certificate from the IICRC, he or she is held to the highest standards. Not only does this keep industry standards high, but it also establishes a recognized national standard, and that is why insurance agents and adjusters keep the graduates on their preferred vendor's lists. Here are a few of the values the technicians are expected to uphold.

1. Respect

Technicians are taught that working with clients and staff that everyone treats respectfully can elevate the job site. It can also help bring out natural abilities and let inborn qualities shine.

2. Integrity

Valuing integrity, the expectation is that all graduating technicians will have strong ethical principles. Dealing honestly and upholding high values is important in developing an honorable reputation within the cleaning and restoration industry.

3. Responsibility

Once at a job, all IICRC technicians are expected to work as if the property were their own. This includes completing the job promptly and using the best tools available to finish the job.

4. Excellence

Service, leadership, and duty are all part of what the graduate is expected to bring to the office each day. Technicians are also taught to hold high standards in service, on the job and off.

5. Expertise

To keep standards, values, and expertise high, the board continues to hold classes to improve industry knowledge. As new and improved tools become available, they are incorporated into the classes. Also, certification is a lifelong process of self-improvement and gaining professional knowledge. Technicians must obtain 14 hours of education every four years.

The IICRC helps hold trained technicians of the cleaning and restoration industry to a high standard. That may be why the insurance agent’s preferred vendor lists in Gorham, ME, are filled with program graduates.
