Saving Carpets Is Possible When Water Removal Services Start Right After A Lost Water Event In Norristown

Broken pipes in your Norristown kitchen can create a vast and widespread mess. Mopping things up often fails to clean things up sufficiently and leaves the interior of your home at risk of developing problems. Instead of doing the work yourself in an attempt to save money, SERVPRO can help save you the extra costs associated with partial cleanup and extraction of lost water.

Residents protect their homes more fully when professional teams carry out the water removal services in Norristown needed to extract both standing water and elevated levels of moisture. Water in any of its forms can cause areas inside your property to suffer damage. Microbial infestations and other types of damage can cause your family to experience health effects, but prompt removal of the water that allows this to happen protects your home and family.

We use different types of equipment to pull the water out of your home rapidly. Our specialists use different extraction attachments to pull water out of carpeting and other flooring types. Saturated carpeting can mean that the pad underneath became ruined. When this occurs, we roll up the carpeting and remove the padding. Before we replace any padding, we need to float the carpet to remove all the water from it and get it completely dry. The flooring below also must register normal dryness when we check with our moisture meters.

We also clean the carpet to ensure that any debris does not cause the padding to wear out more quickly than it might otherwise. Sweeping the underlay also removes dust and other small things that can wear areas in the carpet after we re-lay it.

As we air out the carpet with a method called floating, the risk of overstretching the carpet remains minimal. This allows us to save it without the need to trim it during re-installation. The restoration of your carpet through our effective water removal methods means not only do your restoration costs remain low, but your home looks “Like it never even happened.” when we finish.

SERVPRO of Norristown wants to help keep your home in beautiful condition, and our water removal equipment helps us do exactly that for our Evansburg, Bethel Hill, and Trooper customers. Call us at (610) 272-8520 when your home experiences an emergency involving lost water.

Water Damage Remediation in Your Norristown Business Works Only Under These Conditions

Commercial Water Damage Remediation in Your Norristown Business Works Only Under These Conditions If your business is suffering from excess water, you require effective water removal services. Contact our SERVPRO team for a quick reply.

Commercial Water Removal Quickly Makes Floors Safe Again in Your Norristown Factory

When machines in your Norristown factory break down and malfunction, you call the repairman licensed for that piece of equipment. When a water line slips loose from its fitting and floods your floor with water, you need someone who can fix the problem.

Working conditions that include a factory floor covered in water can put your employees at risk, making it crucial that Norristown commercial water removal and restoration experts arrive quickly. SERVPRO's specialists come prepared with both the needed equipment and tools but also IICRC-based training. Restoring safe working conditions is crucial for your factory in preventing workplace accidents and keeping production quotas in focus. Additionally, our teams help you avoid any unnecessary loss of both inventory and raw materials by helping your employees move these items to safer locations.

Extracting lost water requires one of our truck-mounted pumps when the amount is considerable. For smaller spills and post-pump work, we use hand-held units. These also remove large amounts of water along baseboards where water tension holds water, and also in smaller locations where our larger-sized pumps would not fit.

Mopping up the last traces of moisture can still leave floors damper than what we would like. Trapped water that found its way under machines too heavy or bulky to easily move, inside walls, under counters, and other spaces require different methods. We can drain some areas, like walls and then air them out with an Injectidry system. Other areas must air dry, so we speed the process up with air movers and desiccant machines.

Drying the air of moisture that comes originates from lost water protects working parts in machinery as well as more simple aspects of your plant. Hinges, windows, and any other locations that contain metal can more readily corrode and rust, making them difficult to function properly. We can help keep this minor problem from becoming a constant headache for everyone who works at your business.

SERVPRO of Norristown's goal is to get your factory in Audubon, Evansburg, or Norriton dry again to help prevent additional damage and slip and fall accidents. Call us at (610) 272-8520, so we can make everything “Like it never even happened.”

Recovering from Flood Damage, a Lengthy Process in Lower Providence Township without SERVPRO

Many disasters happen quickly and do not last long, leaving residents in Lower Providence Township able to recover quickly and move on with normal activities soon after. Flooding, though, lingers, keeping people out of the area and prolonging the effects experienced.

SERVPRO technicians use their experience across many fields to ensure that our customers' homes become livable as soon as possible after flood damage happens in Lower Providence Township. While giving an exact date for moving back in is almost impossible to do initially, we can provide an educated range. As we work, we can provide more information to you, allowing your family to plan things more efficiently to meet their immediate needs.

Many things that succumb to a flood, like appliances, mattresses, and carpeting all require immediate disposal to help us more efficiently dry out your home. Personal belongings, however, need your input. We work with you continuously throughout the entire process and do not want to throw anything away that holds special meaning for someone in your family.

Items that we cannot quickly restore through standard methods might respond better to more intensive techniques. We discuss these and their expected results before engaging in more costly work, knowing that you prefer to make these choices yourself. When we come across such items, we place them in a special category. So you can go through them and decide when you have time.

The contents in your house and its structure both need IICRC certified teams, qualified to do the work, and dedicated to making sure your home becomes “Like it never even happened” as quickly as possible. We know flooding can cause severe stress in a family, but helping restore normalcy again eliminates the stress. It also eliminates the risks brought into your home by floodwaters.

Before moving back in, the last step is to ensure that no foul odors exist. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) makes sure that your home no longer holds any strong odors. If any reappear, which can happen on hotter or more humid days, let us know. We want you to be satisfied with our work, from start to finish.

SERVPRO of Norristown continues helping residents in Bethel Hill, Audubon, and Trooper protect and restore their homes after disasters like flood damage occur.

Mold Damage Remdiation In Norristown

Mold Remediation Mold Damage Remdiation In Norristown Don't stress let our experts handle mold in your home call SERVPRO as soon as you smell or see it.

How A Small Leak Complicates Mold Remediation in Norristown

Mold is more than just a nuisance that messes with the visual appeal and air quality of a home. Mold needs a few things, including organic food sources, to thrive. Therefore, when left to proliferate for long, it eats its way into materials compromising their structural integrity. We offer professional remediation services in that can help you restore your Norristown property to the preloss state. 


Slow proliferation is one factor that complicates mold remediation in Norristown. In areas like bathrooms or kitchens when water is regularly used, it is possible for small leaks to go unnoticed for long. Sustained leakage and gravity action extends the damage deep into floors and subfloors thus remediation process requires demolition to replace all the damaged materials. Our SERVPRO technicians use thermal cameras, and other advanced moisture detection equipment to trace the extent of water migration then figure out an approach to tear down the affected areas without doing significant damage to unaffected areas.

Removing the debris and residues left by the infestation is essential to restore the visual appeal and rid the house of the musty smell associated with mold growth. Our SERVPRO technicians use different approaches like HEPA vacuuming and damp wiping the area to remove the debris. Since debris removal and teardown releases spores and other residues into the air, we use air scrubbers with activated charcoal or negative pressure systems to remove such debris.

It is necessary to deal with the moisture problem that led to growth to prevent future proliferation. Fixing leaks and drying off excess moisture should help achieve this goal. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on their ASD, Applied Structural Drying, skills to carry out this step. We use air movers to increase evaporation rate, then use dehumidifiers to extract the moisture from the air. We can also use specialized equipment such as an injecti-dry system to remove moisture trapped in confined spaces.

For thorough remediation of mold damage, call SERVPRO of Norristown at (610) 272-8520. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster and available 24/7.

Effective Ways to Remediate After Fire and Water Damage Affect Your Norristown Home

1/18/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Effective Ways to Remediate After Fire and Water Damage Affect Your Norristown Home Don't be surprised by the necessity to deal with water damage after a fire in your home. Contact our certified team to assess and remediate.

Dealing With the Elevated Humidity That Occurs With Fire Damage in Norristown Properties

After a fire burns in your house in Norristown, you might expect the interior to feel bone-dry. The amount of water vapor in the air can surprise you if you do not expect damp air. While it certainly diminishes over time, this happens slowly. SERVPRO includes the elimination of this water vapor during regular mitigation services.
 
We always consider the entire project when we mitigate a property, and fire damage in Norristown is a multi-faceted disaster. Not only do we find direct contact between water and your belongings, but the steam ends up all over your home. It travels along with the smoke and then continues to disperse.
 
Some of the damage happens immediately, including making photographs adhere to the glass in their frames, curling the pages of your books, and soaking your floors, leading to weakened areas. Additional destruction of your property happens when the steam cools and condenses, especially on materials that remain warmer than other items. This can lead to rusting of anything made of metal and staining and color bleeding of household textiles (including upholstered furniture). Metal hangers can ruin otherwise perfect pieces of clothing.
 
SERVPRO specialists have IICRC training, so we know the importance of ridding your home of not only what the fire consumed and ruined, but to also re-establish normal moisture levels inside your home. Doing so also assists us in eliminating odors caused by the presence of unwanted water. Mold and mildew often proliferate after a fire, but lowering the amount of available moisture halts the growth of microbes.
 
Our hydroxyl machines make the air inside your home more pleasant for us to breathe as we work, but does nothing to eliminate the amount of water vapor. For this, we need desiccant machines and dehumidifiers. At times, we might need to use heated mats. We also use warmed air that we direct into enclosed spaces.
 
Once we eliminate the excess water vapor, our Odor Control Technician (OCT) can use thermal fogging to rid your home of smokey odors. Before, the air and your home's structure and contents' high moisture content might interfere with the effectiveness of the chemicals in the fog. As a steam, this fog contains moisture, although in a meager amount.
 
SERVPRO of Norristown can help resolve the issues of damage from fire, water, and smoke, which can turn any home in Bethel Hill, Evansburg, or Norritonville into a mess. Call us at (610) 272-8520 when you want a team with experience in all aspects of fire damage to restore your home, so it looks “Like it never even happened.”

Call SERVPRO To Save Your Floors In Providence Township

SERVPRO - Water Removal Needs In Lower Providence Township

In Lower Providence Township, water from a broken dishwasher or a split hose supplying an ice maker can spill across an entire home in minutes. If it happens when no one is around for a weekend or only overnight, the water has time to soak in and cause permanent damage.
 
That is why water removal is particularly important for wooden floors in Lower Providence Township homes. SERVPRO restoration teams quickly respond to draw off any standing water and then carefully work to draw excess moisture from between floorboards and water trapped underneath them in the sub-floor.
 
Our technicians start with one or more of the large pumps in our equipment inventory. These machines can draw out hundreds of gallons in 24 hours. Team members can adjust the speed of each pump to maximize efforts without accidentally damaging the floors, and can clear most homes of water damage in a day or two.
 
After completing pumping operations, there is a thin layer of water remaining on the surface. Our technicians use extractors to remove it and the moisture between the floorboards. Depending on the size of the floor, they can choose from a portable, hand-held wand for small rooms and closets. For dining and living rooms, they can use larger devices to include truck-mounted models with extended hoses.
 
Once the extractors stop bringing up water, a SERVPRO inspector uses a moisture meter to determine if the humidity level is still high just over the surface of the floor. That indicates there may be water trapped under the floor, which puts it at risk for rotting and mold. To remove it, technicians remove a small section of the floorboard in an area behind floor trim or usually under a large item like a couch.
 
They install an air mover and attach a hose to force warm, dry air under the floor. The action accelerates evaporation to carefully remove the water without over drying the floor and causing secondary damage like splitting or cracking to the floorboards.
 
Swift removal of any flooding is necessary to restore area homes in our area and throughout Pennsylvania. If you have suffered any water damage, and are concerned for your floors or other parts of your home, contact SERVPRO of Norristown today at (610) 272-8520. We are here for you.

Let SERVPRO Rid Your Norristown Home Of Mold

Containment Benefits during Mold Damage Remediation in Norristown

Mold damage usually occurs in areas that have high humidity, and it is essential to know its first signs. The moment you notice a musty smell or some discoloration on the walls, you need to act quickly and prevent it from spreading and causing structural and health effects. We can inspect your Norristown property to determine the level of contamination and come up with appropriate remediation procedures.
 
Once our SERVPRO technicians have determined the degree of mold damage in your Norristown home, the next step is to isolate the contaminated contents and areas from the uncontaminated ones. The primary goal of containment is controlling the spread of the mold spores as we are repairing your property and protecting the occupants and our staff. As we design the containment systems, we must allow for an exit and entry area. With that, our technicians can remove their Personal Protective Equipment while limiting the risk of cross-contamination outside the site. Such areas are known as clean rooms.
 
Creating a negative air pressure with the site is part of the containment process. Our SERVPRO technicians achieve that by using HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air filtered negative air machines. These devices work by attracting dust and mold spores towards the filter. Together with the plastic sheeting that we set up, we limit the movement of spores when we are demolishing and cleaning the contaminated areas.
 
Where necessary, our SERVPRO technicians open up contaminated walls to get rid of the mold that is growing inside. We understand there is a possibility of cutting electrical wires as we are cutting the drywall. In such cases, we poke a hole into the area and locate the electrical wires. We perform such procedures once we have turned off the power from the mains. After removing the contamination, we clean the surfaces using disinfectants to deactivate the spores and reduce the chances of future mold growth.
 
SERVPRO of Norristown can return your home to its preloss conditions after it has suffered mold damage. Our highly trained and experienced use advanced cleaning and remediation equipment when working on your property. Call (610) 272-8520 today and have all your questions answered.

Too Much Water in Your Norristown Property from Flooding? Just Call SERVPRO for Fast Removal and Drying

12/19/2018 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Too Much Water in Your Norristown Property from Flooding? Just Call SERVPRO for Fast Removal and Drying SERVPRO Provides Better Methods for Drying Out Your Norristown Home

Flood Dryout Technicians In Norristown Talk About How To Work Effectively

When severe thunderstorms make their way through Norristown, the rain can be excessive. Rainwater can come down quickly in a short amount of time, which can require you to call in a professional company such as SERVPRO for your flood water removal and dry out. Thunderstorms can cause high-speed winds which can blow objects such as rocks and branches into your windows, making an easy entry for rainwater. If the rain is severe enough, water can build up outside and possibly enter your structure. When things get wet inside your home, calling us in for a prompt flood dry out can save you money and time in the long run.
 
Once materials and contents inside your home get wet, the cost and severity of the situation can multiply quickly. Calling SERVPRO to conduct a prompt flood dry out in Norristown can prevent secondary damage such as mold growth or problems caused by increased humidity levels. Mold can cause health effects and can start to develop if moisture levels stay high within organic materials for more than 48 hours. Because of this, our goal is always to reduce moisture levels within any building materials that contain wood or paper so that microbes cannot activate and fungi are unable to form. To do this, we follow procedures that include initial extraction and rapid structural drying.
 
Our SERVPRO technicians are tasked with the chore of creating an environment that helps speed up the natural evaporation process. To create such an atmosphere within a structure, we must control the humidity and temperature of the affected area as well as set up equipment that pushes the air in a counterclockwise direction. To do this, we set up a combination of heated air movers and dehumidifiers along with increasing the temperature in the affected rooms if necessary. Constant monitoring helps to achieve our drying goals.
 
The air movers push around the wet air so that moisture can keep evaporating from wet surfaces as the dehumidifiers remove water from the environment. If things ever get wet inside your house after a storm, call SERVPRO of Norristown at (610) 272-8520 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
