SERVPRO Documents All Contents Whether Salvageable Or Unsalvageable

10/5/2021 (Permalink)

Contents in a home that have been affected by fire, and smoke damage SERVPRO provides a contents pack out after a fire in a home. Everything is documented, the unsalvageable items are also documented, and inventoried.

Once a fire has been extinguished, and a water remediation is in process, it is important to begin addressing contents that have been exposed to fire, smoke, soot, and water.  Everything is checked individually, and determined as to whether it is salvageable, or unsalvageable.  Every object is inventoried, and if unsalvageable is recorded and readied for the Insurance Adjuster to examine for loss purposes.

Anything that is deemed salvageable is boxed up and brought to the SERVPRO Warehouse to be cleaned by the Contents Crew.  Depending on the level of heat objects are exposed to during the fire will help determine if it is salvageable as the integrity can become compromised. When the SERVPRO Contents Crew comes across an object that has been compromised it too will be inventoried and placed separate from the salvageable contents.

At SERVPRO we want you back to “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Recommends You Check Your Hot Water Heater On A Regular Basis

7/7/2021 (Permalink)

Hot water in a closet surrounded with mold Failure to check your hot water heater on a regular basis can result in water and mold damage.

Rarely is a hot water heater right out in the open like a couch, or television.  They are usually out of sight, which leads them to be out of mind. A hot water heater can have a water line fail, or even the holding tank can form a leak.  If it is a small leak the moisture from the closet being closed will begin to form mold.  Mold in itself is a major issue as it can cause health issues.  Not until the water line actually forms a larger hole allowing the water to escape through the bottom of the door, which allows the water to infiltrate into the adjoining room, or rooms.  The water supply will nee to be cut off, and the hot water heater removed.  Once this is done SERVPRO can begin a water mitigation, and once completely dried out can begin a mold remediation. SERVPRO will get you back to "Like it never even happened."
