Can Thermal Imagery Help Identify Water Damage in My Teaneck Home?

6/29/2020 (Permalink)

A thermal image of a radiator in a home. SERVPRO has the equipment you need when it comes to moisture in your Teaneck home, call us today.

There are many advantages to using infrared technology to scope a water loss incident in your Teaneck property. 

Understanding the spread and severity of water damage in your Teaneck home is one of the initial steps to restoring it. From the time that our professionals first arrive after getting notified of an active emergency, our project manager and crew chief both work with the customer to determine the extent of the damage and any pre-existing conditions that we should be aware of moving forward.

There are multiple levels of water damage in Teaneck homes and businesses that our professionals must address, this is exponentially more challenging without the appropriate knowledge of where moisture pockets exist. Surface water might be simple to detect and even treat in certain circumstances, but this is seldom the full extent of the damage. Migration often forces water into structural cavities, and exposed materials can absorb moisture as well. Identifying where this water is, and its concentration, is one of the focal points of job scoping.

How Does Thermal Imagery Work in Water Restoration? 

As you might somewhat know, thermal imagery and infrared technology have become regular staples in loss restoration. This technology works by identifying variances in temperature that can indicate the presence of moisture. The entire approach hinges on a scientific truth known as thermal capacitance. This term describes the ability of specific materials or substances to store and retain heat over long periods. This ability, in terms of water restoration, means that thermal imagery can often detect fluctuations in temperature after time has passed. Using thermal imaging and infrared technology, our experienced technicians can usually identify:

  • Moisture Pockets
  • Dampness
  • Plumbing Damage

When Is the Best Time to Use Infrared? 

Despite its usefulness, there are only certain circumstances where thermal imagery is the best choice. Responding technicians can choose which techniques can best identify moisture pockets and dampness within materials and structural cavities to address the drying of your home thoroughly. There are specific advantages to choosing advanced technologies like infrared, even if this approach is not entirely without flaws. Some of the benefits of choosing thermal imagery to identify moisture pockets include:

  • No destruction to the home – One of the specific benefits of choosing this approach to identify moisture pockets is its non-invasiveness. We do not need to remove portions of drywall or probe through materials to get readings. 
  • Aids in inspecting challenging areas – Many areas of the property can be difficult to reach with our detection equipment. However, thermal imagery can sweep this area and help our technicians to determine if a closer evaluation is necessary. 
  • You can cover ground more quickly – With the imagery in a handheld device that can move with the technician, infrared sweeping of the property can happen fast. We can identify moisture pockets and dampness concerns quickly in this regard.

Why Is Thermal Imagery Not Used Exclusively? 

Many tools and technologies get used during the job scoping phase for area homes and businesses. While there are many distinct advantages to selecting infrared imagery of the property after a water loss, this is not exclusively the best choice in all situations. Because the approach works on identifying cooler temperature points, often generated by the presence of water, there is a potential for false positives that might temporarily slow down restoration.

What Are Other Moisture Detection Devices? 

Because thermal imagery is not infallible, there are many other moisture detection tools that our SERVPRO team can use. Each of these approaches has its place in job scoping and damage evaluation for the property. Choosing among these options happens at the discretion of our crew chief and project manager walking the property and cataloging the damage. The more thorough and accurate our determination of water presence can be, the shorter and less costly restoration becomes. Beyond thermal imaging, there are several other practical approaches for identifying moisture pockets and their concentration, even beyond surface materials. Some of these include:  

  • Moisture sensors
  • Surface detection tools 
  • Probing moisture meters

Water loss incidents can get out of control quickly, especially without a working knowledge of the migration of water damage and its concentration. While there are multiple approaches to discover where dampness exists beyond the surface materials, thermal imagery is still one of the most heavily used in residential and commercial applications.

What Do Business Owners Do After a Fire in Teaneck?

Most Teaneck Businesses Rely on a Commercial Fire Damage Restoration Service to Ensure That Emergencies are Dealt with Efficiently

Can my business clean fire marks without professional assistance?

The impact of commercial fire damage on your Teaneck premises can vary greatly depending on the type of materials that burn. It is essential that you use professional fire technicians to ensure that the business is safe and that any damages are quickly rectified. Sometimes, the water used in the firefighting procedure can work against your business, causing further harm by bonding soots to walls, ceilings, and surfaces, not to mention increasing the likelihood of mold growth. You may be able to assist with the restoration by performing mitigation tasks while you wait for a technician to arrive. SERVPRO technicians guarantee to arrive at your business premises within four hours of notification of loss to ensure that damages do not become permanent.

How do I remove soot or smoke residues from my business?

When materials burn, they release hot smoke, which travels upward, affecting walls and ceilings. You can perform mitigation tasks by lightly-vacuuming patches of smoke. However, we recommend leaving any wall residue for commercial fire damage restoration services as these areas can cause permanent harm to your Teaneck business. While it is understandable to want to re-open your business as quickly as possible and take a proactive approach to restore it, introducing water or other solvents to smoke residues can have the opposite of the intended effect- spreading damage around and increasing the time of restoration. SERVPRO crew chiefs can inform you of areas that are at lower risk of further damage during the inspection phase of restoration.

What can I do to lower losses after a fire in my business?

  • Cover any upholstery or soft furnishings with dry, colorfast towels
  • Limit movement of your staff in the affected area to prevent foot-traffic from spreading damage
  • Ensure you and your team regularly clean and wash their hands after entering the area to avoid marking on walls or surfaces

Is it Possible to Erase the Impact of Fire Damage?

5/28/2020 (Permalink)

A living room with fire and soot damage. Englewood your fire damage is nothing to play with, call SERVPRO today.

Fire impact on your Englewood home can be devastating, and it often leaves a homeowner not knowing where to begin. SERVPRO is available 24/7 so that we can come out to your house to provide emergency restoration when you need it. Our services make it so that you can get your house back into preloss condition, and your life can get back to normal quicker than DIY cleanup methods alone. With the professional techniques and latest advancements in the fire restoration world, we can erase all traces of the fire throughout your property.

What Should I Do Right After the Fire?

Once the fire gets extinguished, and it is deemed safe to enter, you should call our team right away. A crew is deployed, and upon arrival, we can start the assessment and plan for restoring your fire damage in Englewood. We have a range of cleaning techniques and restoration equipment available that allows us to salvage as much of your interior as possible. 

Do I Have to Worry About the Air Quality in My Home After a Fire?

There can be a lot of soot and smoke particles left after a fire. You also need to be concerned about remaining moisture from the fire being extinguished as lingering water brings about the potential for harmful mold and mildew growth. Our skilled technicians select the best equipment and filtration tools to clean and restore the air quality within your home. Not only does this help to ensure that the air in your home is breathable, but it reduces the potential threat of tough smoke odors and microbial contamination.

  •   Air Scrubbers – These machines help to reduce the number of particulates and debris from the environment. They also cut back on the threat from certain microorganisms that are known for colonizing when conditions are moist. The machines work similarly to our Hydroxyl machinery, pulling in the contaminated air, trapping the airborne debris, and putting out cleaner air.
  •   Hydroxyl Generators – These generators are dual-acting, meaning that they deodorize the interior of your home while also filtering and purifying the air. This equipment features a HEPA-filtration system where the air goes into the machine, and the filter traps all particles, debris, and microbes. 

How Do You Address Soot Stains?

During a fire, the heat from the fire brings about charring to various surface areas. With standard restoration, replacement, or resurfacing is usually the best option. Because this is often time-consuming and costly, our skilled SERVPRO technicians use a variety of techniques and advanced equipment to address the tough soot and smoke residue. With soda blasting, pressurized air puts out sodium bicarbonate at a high rate of speed to strip away the smoke residue and charring. Since the sodium bicarbonate also acts as a deodorizer, it helps to remove odors from damaged materials being treated. 

Smoke and soot particles settle very quickly on ceilings, walls and other flat surfaces throughout your home after a fire. Trying to clean with DIY methods is time-consuming and often unproductive. Our technicians may use vacuum cleaners and pressure washers to help remove residue faster in your Englewood home. We also have HEPA filters in our industrial strength vacuums that help to pull out loosened soot particles without worry that they get redistributed into the air. 

Can Smoke Odors be Completely Eliminated?

We have perfected the process of removing smoke odors from your interior after a fire. Each step that we use helps to break down tough residue and locate all areas where odorous particles may have lingered. 

  •   When necessary, we remove belongings and furniture from your home to be deodorized elsewhere. This also helps to prevent the transfer of smoke residue to other parts of the home that are unaffected.
  •   Our technicians carefully clean all surfaces that are covered in residue, making sure to leave no area untreated. We have an extensive selection of EPA-approved cleaning agents to remove residue from burned materials, including wood, plastic, and building materials such as drywall.
  •   More pungent odors call for recreation of the situation that caused odor penetration to various surfaces. Deodorant agents are heated with our fogging machinery, generating a chemical agent cloud that helps to penetrate deeply to reach the odors. 
  •   Exposed surfaces can also be sealed if a fire burned a significant portion of the home and created a great deal of smoke residue. This is done by using a special primer coat on the walls before using a final color, as well as sealing the ductwork throughout the HVAC system.

When it comes to the fallout from fire damage in your home, working with skilled technicians is the best way to go. You can call SERVPRO of Teaneck/Englewood 24/7 at (201) 266-0482, and we can send out a team quickly to make it “Like it never even happened.”

How Do I Make Sure my Water Damage Insurance Claim is Successful in Teaneck?

5/23/2020 (Permalink)

Water leaking and flooded on wood parquet floor Using a professional water restorer can reduce the costs of your claim.

Homeowners in Teaneck Need Prove they took Reasonable Steps to Control Water Damage for an Insurer to Cover their Claim

How long does it take for water damage to occur?

Water negatively affects property straightaway by soaking fabrics and flooring. Further water damage can occur in your Teaneck property when water migrates. Water naturally moves downward and can soak through carpets or flooring to the subfloor. Over two to three days, the water in your home begins to degrade as mold spores can use the moist, humid environment to proliferate rapidly. The first day of water restoration can be influential in the overall cost of your claim. A proactive approach to water intrusion can protect valuable areas of your home from irrevocable harm.

What does water do to a subfloor?

When water migrates to the subfloor, it begins to absorb into the surface. Natural wooden materials expand in the presence of moisture, which absorbs into wood grains. The expansion of the wooden subfloor can lead to warping, bubbling, or cupping, which eventually manifests at the surface level. Expansion of the subfloor can also place additional pressure on the joints of your home's structural frame. When water exposure happens to a concrete subfloor, it can cause cracking, which weakens the overall structure and provides crevices for mold growth.

How do I inspect the subfloor?

    •    Remove floorboards or detach carpets and remove the carpet pad
    •    Use a moisture probe to assess the moisture content of the subfloor- standard moisture content is 12%.
    •    Check for signs of pressure or tightness at wall joints

How do you dry the subfloor?

There are multiple methods of drying a subfloor, and the basic method is to expose the subfloor applying ventilation and temperature directly onto the surface. SERVPRO technicians can dry subfloors by using extraction equipment. Water extractors use heated vacuums to rapidly remove moisture from the surface until the subfloor returns to its normal moisture content level.

Using a professional water restorer can reduce the costs of your claim. Contact SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482.

Commercial Water Removal in New Milford Pizzerias

5/5/2020 (Permalink)

Pizza pies If your pizza place gets flooded, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood can get you back up quickly.

Commercial Water Removal

Water damage is a common problem for New Milford businesses. Pipes burst, and plumbing becomes backed-up for various reasons year-round. Getting the water out is the important first step.

New Milford commercial water removal services are important for every business, but especially for one where children are the customer focus. Pizza places with a theme and arcade games attract a lot of business, which means many kids are running around. In an environment already filled with coughing children, crying infants, and spilled soda everywhere, we know that the last thing a manager needs is a soggy carpet and out-of-order bathrooms.

The first thing we do is stop the leak. In a business like this one, the usual sources are a broken sink or backed-up toilet in the bathroom. If the manager has not done so already, we turn off the water to stop the flow and then fix the problem. We fix most plumbing issues in just an hour or two.

Now we get the water out. If the water is more than an inch in depth, we bring in a commercial grade water pump. Even in a large facility like a pizzeria, technicians can remove all standing water in a single day. Once the water is barely covering the surface and most of it is trapped in the carpets, we change over to water extraction wands.

For water less than an inch in depth, we go directly to the wands to pull moisture from the carpet and out of cracks or grooves in concrete and tile. Depending on the amount of carpet involved, this task takes one or two days. Since most commercial carpets do not have a pad underneath, technicians save time because we do not have to lift the carpet to dispose of it. Additional drying is often needed, but these the wands and pumps remove over 90 percent of the water.

As a locally owned franchise operation, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood understands that every business needs to reopen quickly after a shut-down. Keeping our customers happy and our community thriving is why we do this. To learn more about what we can do for you, call us at (201) 266-0482 today.

Aquarium Can Cause Flood Damage to Your Englewood Office

5/3/2020 (Permalink)

aquarium fish tank You can depend on us to get the job done right and get it done quickly.

Flood Damage Caused By Your Waiting Room's Aquarium

An aquarium tank, when full, experiences intense pressure from the inside. Fish tanks are constructed of glass pieces and silicone adhesive inserted inside a metal or wooden frame. They are well-known for developing tiny leaks that are hard to locate when full.

Not all flood damage in Englewood originates from the outside world. Placing an aquarium on display for your clients can relax them immeasurably. However, ensuring that your tank is never leaking can be hard to do. Draining a tank, finding temporary homes for all of the occupants, and then drying the tank out to remove and reapply silicone can be an especially tiresome task, which is why many times a tank is left as it is until it is too late and the tank's water gushes out.

Fish tanks are as foul-smelling as they are beautiful, even when they are maintained correctly. When the water spills out of a fish tank, what was once a beautiful centerpiece in your clean waiting area quickly becomes a disgusting and flooded mess – not something you want clients to see, or to smell. A good water repair company knows that your professional image is directly affected by the experience your clients have, beginning from the moment they walk into the waiting room until they conclude their session with you. We want to make it pleasant for everyone again, no matter the source of your flood damage.

Cleaning up the Water

The procedure for cleaning up and restoring your practice after flood damage happens reflects not only the damaged area but also the type of water involved. Water from a fish tank contains uneaten food and other organic components, and any chemicals used to treat the water. Algae is also a common element in fish tanks. While the water may look clean, we would classify this flood as black water because of the nature of the water. Even with water extraction, subsequent cleaning, and anti-microbial treatments, it is likely that more is needed.

Bad Odors from Flooding

When flood damage includes bad odors that are left behind, as it often does, we include deodorization techniques in our services. In many buildings, the carpet acts as a built-in filter for collecting particles that were airborne. Flooding greatly hinders this filtering. After a flood, instead of holding onto particles, the carpet now releases the newly deposited particles into the air. Our Carpet Repair and Reinstallation Technician (RRT) has been certified by the IICRC in cleaning techniques. After the carpet is clean, an assessment of which type machinery is required to best address the problem of remaining odors.

Fogging is a very effective way to rid an area of odors. Because of the water inherent in a disaster such as flooding, dry fogging is often preferred over other methods. Dry-fogging is also called thermal fogging. Fogging allows the mist used to penetrate every nook and cranny. The deodorizing particles in the mist then bind with those particles that cleaning could not remove. Before we consider our work complete, your waiting room can be “Like it never even happened.” No more water, and no lingering fish odor to irritate your clients or your staff.

When your practice has flood damage, there is no need to cancel your clients' appointments. Instead, call us, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood to make your appointment. We can be reached at all hours of the day or night by calling us at (201) 266-0482. We can begin work within the hour, ensuring that your clients will not miss their next session with you.
