Eliminating Fire Damage In Your Clifton Park Home

fire damaged home SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County is Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Eliminating Fire Damage from a Clifton Park Kitchen

The kitchen is easily the most common source of fire damages in the home, but kitchen fires are also the least reported. Because of this, soot deposits and damages can linger for extended periods. With exposure to moisture, soot becomes acidic and can corrode metals and plastics. Invisible protein residues from cooking fires not only emit foul odors, but they can also discolor paints and finishes over time.

If your Clifton Park kitchen needs fire damage mitigation fast, you can count on SERVPRO to be there for the cleanup within hours of your call. SERVPRO uses the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards for its cleanup protocols, meaning you get access to a high standard of cleanup that seeks to restore both your structure and the contents within to a safe and clean condition once more. Technicians are thorough in their inspections to ensure the safety of occupants.

SERVPRO's 24/7 Availability
While SERVPRO is a large firm with over 1,700 franchises in the United States and Canada, local residents own and operate within these locations so that their services are always relevant to the unique needs of the homeowners in their respective communities. SERVPRO is uniquely positioned to aid residents not only through cleanup services but also through cooperation with local chambers of commerce to provide the restoration that homeowners need when they need it.

Your local SERVPRO is affiliated with the following Chambers of Commerce:

    •    Adirondack
    •    Albany
    •    Lake George
    •    Saratoga
    •    Southern Saratoga

Cleaning from Ceiling to Floor
When removing fire damage soils, it is essential to get rid of large, loose, dry deposits, typically with dry cleaning sponges, before moving on to wet cleaning solutions. If protein residues are present after a fire, enzyme digesters may be used to turn proteins into water-soluble, odorless materials that be readily cleaned with EPA-registered antimicrobial solutions.

If there is extensive charring on wood cabinetry or counters, gentle blast media like soda ash may be utilized to remove burnt material while minimizing damage to your fixtures.

SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County is Faster to Any Size Disaster. Call (518) 885-2620 for disaster cleanup service at any time of the day or night.

Our Technicians Can Save Your Water Damaged Carpeting In Your Clifton Park Home

Premier Carpet Cleaning for Water Damaged Clifton Park Homes

After a water loss incident, your Clifton Park home could be in dire need of cleaning and recovery actions. While there are dozens of restoration teams and services that you can choose from in Saratoga County alone, our SERVPRO professionals can help with premier cleaning services to restore the look and feel of flooring throughout your property like carpeting.

Water cleanup in Clifton Park homes often involves many phases of revitalization and renewal. Beginning in the area where the water damages originated, you can encounter the highest concentrations of moisture and dampness in the exposed flooring, wallboard, and trim. Carpets can absorb considerable volumes of standing water, but are also susceptible to lingering residues and staining when cleaning does not occur as promptly as it should.

We have a full division of experienced cleaning technicians capable of employing some advanced strategies with various carpet and flooring types. With water recovery, the first step is often to dry out the damaged carpet as promptly as possible with a combination of weighted extractors and evaporative drying techniques. An assessment can get made about the condition of the padding once the top carpeting layer gets detached. Light wands are an excellent extraction tool when the padding is not to get saved.

Hot water extraction and bonnet cleaning are two carpet recovery strategies that can improve the look and function of flooring in your residence. Hot water extraction has often gotten referred to as steam cleaning, and it features the pressurized blast of warm, clean water to the base of carpet fibers. With the powerful onboard vacuum to remove surface moisture, we can make many carpet threats for your home, “Like it never even happened.”

No matter how we can help after a disaster strikes, you can count on the fast and confident response of our SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County team. We have sophisticated equipment and trained personnel to improve the function of your carpet beyond removing water saturation, odors, and residues. Give our skilled experts a call whenever you need us at (518) 885-2620.

house floating inside a life-tube on the ocean SERVPRO Saves Clifton Park Homes from Flood, Fire, Water, and Mold Problems

Clifton Park Properties -- Flood, Fire, Mold, and Water Damaging Events -- and SERVPRO for Full Recovery

No job is too big or too small for our SERVPRO team, and our years of serving the Greater Clifton Park area can help to showcase this. Because we understand how destructive loss incidents can become, and how costly it can be to pursue your own subcontractors, we have developed a system of doing most of the restoration and recovery work ourselves for damaged local properties. We want to save our customers time and money, and that is why we can proudly offer full-scale build-back and repairs, including those after mold damages.

Water
 
Because water recoveries are such a prevalent task for our trained SERVPRO technicians, we have to be very concise and thorough with our scoping of new projects. Water can migrate quickly throughout a Clifton Park home, and we have advanced discovery devices and technologies that can help to understand the spread of these effects and their severities better. An established perimeter of the current damage can help our SERVPRO team to establish drying zones that better maximize efficiency working in your home.
 
Effective drying begins with the placement and proper distribution of drying and moisture removal equipment. Air movers, along with refrigerant or desiccant dehumidifiers, can quickly manage the moisture content in Clifton Park homes. We can monitor the process every day, ensuring that we can reposition drying equipment as needed while tracking the progress of drying through our DryBook software.
 
Though drying is a vital element to restoring water-damaged Clifton Park homes, we also must consider the instances in which damaging effects persist for days and weeks at a time. We have a team of in-house general contractors that can begin essential mitigation tasks like a controlled demolition to expedite drying and reduce costs. These same professionals can seamlessly transition from this mitigation phase to reconstruction and plumbing repairs as needed.
 
Fire
 
Whenever fire losses occur, there is undeniable stress and an overwhelmed feeling that affects most Clifton Park homeowners. Most cannot see how their property in such disarray can look normal again. Part of the work that we do is helping customers through these traumatic experiences as much as it is restoring properties and their contents. The technicians dispatched to your fire loss are compassionate as much as experienced, giving you a confident and patient approach that can settle the restlessness after a fire disaster.
 
Debris removal is a service that we can offer after almost every fire loss incident, regardless of how limited your home insurance plan might be. The removal of charred belongings and ruined materials can help your Clifton Park property in many ways. This clearing can reduce soot particles in the environment, reduce harsh odors present in the house, and can make the space for mitigation and restoration work to continue more manageable.
 
We can work with your insurance provider to get mitigation steps started immediately to reduce the threat to your property from migrating fire effects. Smoke and soot influences can come with health risks for those exposed, not to mention the marring effect they can have on contents and surfaces in Clifton Park residences. Our SERVPRO team can remove these residues and odors with advanced equipment and potent cleaning/deodorization agents. Our crews have learned multiple IICRC-Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification best practices for helping our customers.
 
Storm
 
Storm losses do not happen at convenient times. The faster that professionals can get to work on the structural damages and the consequences of these situations, the better the protection we can offer Clifton Park homes and businesses. We have a team of emergency responders that can mobilize at any time to offer your property the mitigation it needs to reduce loss and save you money. This process begins with the emergency repair service we can offer from our in-house residential contractors. From roof tarping to board up services, we can reduce the penetration of floodwater to begin drying and extraction quickly.
 
Extraction is vital when floodwater is present because this standing water can saturate exposed material and amplify the likelihood of mold growth the longer it goes unchallenged. Our professionals have dozens of extraction units ranging from our wet-vacs with light wands up to our powerful extractor truck. Our SERVPRO technicians also utilize specialty extractor tools like weighted extraction tools that can remove moisture from carpets and padding installed in Clifton Park homes.
 
Drying and cleaning up after flood damage in Clifton Park homes can be vital to making these losses “Like it never even happened” for our customers. We have rapid drying solutions with positive pressure systems, air movers, dehumidifiers, and other equipment. Disinfection and cleaning can help to finalize the work that we have done before reconstruction begins, and we have many advanced cleaning agents and products to accomplish this.
 
Mold
 
Mold damage can be a very challenging situation to contend with, primarily because you might not be able to identify that a problem exists. Some homeowners can, fortunately, detect the presence of mold colonies by a physical discovery of the fungi on surfaces or an unmistakable musty odor emanating from a moist area of your Clifton Park home. Even the high humidity that can plague our area in New York during the summer months can contribute to an elevated risk of mold development.
 
We are certified through the state of New York as mold remediators, meaning that the work we do in Clifton Park residences meets or even exceeds the high standards of remediation contractors. With the high speed of migration of active colonization, our implementation of containment strategies and practical drying efforts can significantly slow and eventually stop the spread of the organism so that our removal techniques work.
 
Removing mold colonies from your Clifton Park home is not a singular approach, but rather a combination of many techniques blended together. These methods match the needs of your structure in the areas where colonization is the worst or might be lighter. Substantial damages with deterioration can require controlled demolition, for example, while lesser impacted areas can benefit from abrasive cleaning techniques such as soda-blasting or antimicrobial sprays.
 
There is no way of knowing when your home or business could fall victim to a loss incident, but our SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County team stands ready to help. Water, fire, mold, and storm damages all have devastating effects, and we have a comprehensive approach to get your house back to preloss condition quickly. Give us a call today at (518) 885-2620.

SERVPRO Is the Right Choice for Clifton Park Water Damage

Every call about water damage from residents in Saratoga County is a little different. This area is known as one of the best places to live in New York. SERVPRO is proud to serve your needs and to return your property to its preloss condition. We customize our process and equipment to fit your specific situation.

Do you have water damage in Clifton Park? If so, SERVPRO can assure you of six necessary steps always performed when handling any water loss restoration project.

Step 1: Emergency Contact - SERVPRO maintains a 24-hour response team dedicated to removing water, mitigating the effects, and preventing further harm to your home. We answer calls every day of the year, including holidays.

Step 2: Inspection and Damage Assessment - Our technicians secure your home after a water damage event. This action includes boarding up entrances to prevent further loss. We also inspect your home to identify collapsing ceilings, weakened sub-floors, and electrical hazards.

Step 3: Water Removal/Water Extraction - Pumps are used to remove standing water. If the amount is under two inches, we use smaller extractors. Once the visible water is gone, we look for water behind walls, in crawl spaces, and under floors.

Step 4: Drying - If the walls and ceilings are not too wet, air movers and dehumidifiers restore the normal moisture levels. They deliver a rapid stream of air across surfaces of furniture, drywall, and ceiling tiles speeding up the natural drying process. The larger dehumidifiers can remove up to 30 gallons of water every 24 hours.

Step 5: Cleaning and Repair - Floors may be okay once dry. If the water damage is minor, we treat or repair it. If fibers destroy thinner laminate flooring, it has to be replaced. If dry carpet only has small indications of mold, it can be treated with an antimicrobial cleaner. Often, both it and the pad both need to be replaced.

Step 6: Restoration - The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration certifies SERVPRO technicians. For more than 25 years, they have set the standards for the inspection, cleaning, and restoration service industries. We work with your insurance company. And to protect your family, we ensure it is safe to remain in your home while we work.

SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County is Faster To Any Size Disaster. Count on us to fix the water damage in your home, "Like it never even happened." When you need us any time or any day, call (518) 885-2620.

Inventive Tools for Drying Out Clifton Park Water Damage

Recovering from any sized water loss incident can be a stressful period for Clifton Park homeowners. Not only are you struggling to protect your possessions from intruding water, but you must also determine the best approach for drying up the damage and moving forward. If you wait too long for the right preventative steps, you can be battling water loss effects through the majority of your residence. Our professionals can help. 

While our team has unique qualifications and training through the standard-setting Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in almost every area of water restoration and recovery, overcoming water damage in Clifton Park is not only about the knowledge and experience. Our team relies heavily on the deep inventory of recovery tools and extraction equipment that can efficiently help us to manage the worsening situation. 

During the inspection period, some of our innovative devices can first get used. With thermal and infrared imagery, for example, our SERVPRO team can identify the presence of dampness and moisture pockets in wall cavities and other inaccessible areas. Not only can this help us to reduce unnecessary tear-out and reconstruction, but it can streamline the drying process so that it can complete much faster. 

Our response team has hundreds of air movers and dehumidifiers that we can utilize to begin removing moisture from affected areas of your property. Air movers are ideal for this process because they have a concentrated blast of heated air to displace moisture in saturated materials and force it into the environment. Once part of the air, our desiccant dehumidifier collects it. 

Our SERVPRO team also arrives with specialty equipment tailored to specific scenarios. WE have weighted extractors to help pull water up from saturated carpeting. We also have large drying mats capable of slow and steady moisture draw from damaged hardwood. No matter what materials became affected by the disaster, our technicians can make it “Like it never even happened.” 

Water loss situations can be challenging for homeowners, but our SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County team can help. Give us a call anytime at (518) 885-2620.

Is your Saratoga County home ready for Winter?

10/4/2019 (Permalink)

Photo of fall colored leaves falling and on the ground Fall has arrived!

Ahhh, fall is finally here! The leaves are changing, there’s a crisp coolness in the air, and our favorite pumpkin spiced-flavored treats line store shelves once more. We all look forward to fall’s festivities, and now that Halloween is almost here the winter Holidays are approaching fast. You have just a few weeks left to prepare your home for winter. Preparing can help ensure you’re cozying up by the fireside worry-free once cold weather rolls around. 

Decorating and meal-prepping might be the first things on your mind when it comes to preparing your home for the colder months Here are important fall maintenance tips that can make all the difference once winter’s first freeze hits.

  1. Clear out your gutters

All those colorful leaves falling from the trees sure are pretty — but they also pile up pretty quickly in your home’s gutters.

Even if you have gutter guard silt or excess debris can lead to clogs (or ice dams in wintery conditions), which can prevent gutters from draining properly. In turn, there’s a chance water could seep into your home since it has nowhere else to escape to, causing a multitude of issues like damage to your valuables, mold growth, and even structural rot.

Before winter hits, clear your house’s gutters of leaves and any other debris that might’ve accumulated during the summer months. It also helps to run water through the gutters afterward to check for any leaks or misalignments that could damage your home. Don’t forget to check the down spouts.

  1. Inspect for air leaks

Things like damaged weather stripping and small cracks in your home’s structure allow warm air to escape, causing your heater to go into overdrive to keep your place warm.

The solution to your chilly house and high utility bills is pretty simple: before it gets wintery outside, inspect your home’s windows, doorways, and any other places where air might be able to enter or exit.

You can use caulking to stop leaks in the stationary components of your home (like a crack in your doorframe) and weather stripping to insulate the moving components (like windows and doors).

  1. Have your heating system checked

Home just doesn’t feel like home if a malfunctioning heater is leaving you with the chills. And in parts of the country with freezing temps, it can be a much more serious situation.

That’s why it’s wise to have a licensed contractor come out to inspect your heater at least once a year, especially before the weather outside becomes frightful. Ask about the condensate drain line. “Is it clear?” “Is there an operating float switch?” Consider a moister detector that will alarm if water gets more than a 16th of an inch deep. This will let you know you have a potential problem.

  1. Prepare your pipes

Get to know where the pipelines in your house are located and make sure to inspect them every autumn (at least).

Simply patch any small leaks to help reduce weaknesses that might cause the pipe to burst in freezing weather. Have heat tape installed by professional who knows the applications. And you can further protect any exposed pipes by insulating them with foam or rubber pipe wraps, which can be found at your local hardware store.

For larger leaks or pipeline problems, it’s always a good idea to play it safe and call the pros.

Also prepare them when you leave for the long weekend to Grandma’s Turn the main valve off it can be the difference between a $800 repair and on in the tens of thousands of dollars. When you come back turn on slowly to prevent a sudden increase in pressure known as water hammer.

  1. Drain any outside faucets and irrigation systems 

Speaking of bursting pipes, it’s important to pay attention to the water systems immediately outside your place too. Undrained water in outdoor faucets and irrigation systems can expand when frozen and cause a pipe to burst.

Draining faucets is simple enough: just unhook the hoses from the faucets and pack them away in the garage for the winter and let out any remaining water — easy as that!

Irrigation systems, on the other hand, often vary in the way they should be maintained. It’s best to call a professional who has experience with underground water systems, just to cover all your bases.

  1. Have your roof inspected

For your safety, a full-blown roof inspection should be done professionally. The cost to hire an inspector can be as low as a little over $200 and can prevent seriously hefty repair expenses down the line if a winter storm wreaks havoc on your roof and you don’t have sufficient insurance coverage to cover repair costs.

Cut branches that overhang the roof or rubbing against the roof this can damage and cause problems for your home as well

Reinforcing and protecting your roof now can help you avoid a whole host of hazards, like air and water leaks, water damage, mold, and more — all of which could put a damper on your seasonal festivities (and your wallet).

  1. Restock cold-weather home essentials

Key items like rock salt or kitty litter, snow shovels, space heaters, extra batteries, and heated blankets can help make your home both more functional and comfortable during wintertime. Stock up on these helpful winter wares ahead of time to help avoid any extra hassle or stress come holiday season. You can also be prepared with a ready kit like the ones available at the Red Cross

  1. Take a peek at your homeowners insurance

Believe it or not, your homeowner’s policy could come to the rescue for a whole host of cold-weather mishaps. Whether a hailstorm leaves holes in your roof, a vandal breaks into your home and destroys valuables while you’re out holiday shopping, or the weight of snow and ice results in structural damage to your house, homeowners insurance could help pay to repair or replace your losses. Have a conversation with your agent about the “what if’s” and what you should be covered for.  

If you do all these and still have a Fire, Water, or Mold Damage to your home or business, call SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County. We make it “Like it never even happened."
