Do Storms In Utah Make You Nervous?

Utah Storms

Living in Utah might have you wondering why we too should be ready for when storms come. Utah does not see many major storms throughout the year but storms should still be something we prepare ourselves for.

Specifically during the rainy season, we must be extra careful.  After our super dry, hot summers and how often we have wild fires, a lot of the time our mountains are left without the trees and bushes.  We are left more vulnerable to landslides and flash floods from the rain we receive. Also after big winters and melt off can also cause  flooding and water damage. 

When your home is hit by a flood or storm, remember that your local SERVPRO is here to restore your home to its pre-storm condition. We specialize in restoring homes and buildings in a quick and timely manner, so that you and your family could go back in to your normal routine.

Do you have smoke smell in your home? Let the professionals take care of it.

Smoke coming out of home Don't let smoke damage ruin your day!!

Are you one of the 1.3 million people each year that has had a home fire? How will you ever get rid of that smell?  OZONING!  What is ozoning and how does it work?

Normal oxygen (O2) is converted to O3, which is commonly called ozone.  It reverts back to O2 in about an hour if the O3 is unused.  This leaves the air fresh and clean because the source of the order has been permanently removed.  And there are no artificial odors so the space becomes free of odors, as nature intended.

Outdoors, nature eliminates odors and microorganisms using UV light and O3.  Indoors, most places receive very little UV light or O3 to help eliminate the odors.  An ozone machine creates O3, or ozone, in a process that utilizes an electrical current.  Ozone sanitizes the air by breaking down odors and microorganisms at their source.

Nature creates O3 as a natural cleaning during thunderstorms, and also from the sunlight striking the earth’s atmosphere.  We have all taken a walk after a thunderstorm and experienced that fresh clean, fresh smell in the air.  That’s O3, or ozone, at work.

SERVPRO also offers a service at our facility where we can ozone specific items like clothing, furniture, or anything that has smoke damage and get it smelling better than new.

Maintenance on your dish washer can lower your risk of water damage to your American Fork home!!

Dishwasher with water coming out Don't let your dishwasher cause you a water loss!!

The dishwasher in your American Fork residence certainly has made life a little easier than the tiresome hours that used to get spent in front of the sink hand cleaning every specific dish. While this appliance has offered much regarding efficiency and convenience, it is not entirely devoid of potential problems and threats to your home if it is not properly maintained.

One of the greatest risks that homeowners face with an aging dishwasher is water damage in their American fork home. From the simplest of mistakes that any user could make to the literal degradation of the working parts that seal and operate your appliance, water damages are possible at any time. Avoiding these circumstances might seem impossible, but you can limit the possibility with some routine maintenance and repairs.

Many homeowners have this low appreciation for the appliances in their home, so much so that they react to the problems that their machines experience rather than checking them regularly for routine wear and tear concerns. Even an annual inspection can help to identify risks and potential problems and help you to avoid these concerns before they turn into substantial water loss events.

Sometimes, however, the dishwasher is not always the problem. User error has attributed to many water loss incidents in local homes as well, where the appliance did not get entirely closed or wedged open as the washing and rinsing cycles run. Several gallons of water can drain out onto the floors of the kitchen at this point, demanding immediate attention from competent restoration technicians like our SERVPRO team.

While initial assessment of the damage, however it originated, is critical to determining what must happen to restore it, this is a precursor to the work that must occur in that first visit. Extraction and even initial drying efforts can help to limit the widespread damage that weakens the structural elements of your home. Fast response from our SERVPRO technicians can help to reduce or even eliminate swelling and irreparable damage to flooring materials in this affected area of your home.

It might seem like there are so many threats to your home that are out of your control. Dishwasher concerns leading to water damages can often get avoided with the right precautionary measures and preventative maintenance, however. If you have a water emergency or require clean up services in your home, do not hesitate to give our SERVPRO of North Utah County restoration specialists a call today at (801) 785-5228

SERVPRO of North Utah County can restore your home after events involving fire damage!

SERVPRO logo, water, and fire Don't forget to check your cords!!

When a water line to your refrigerator drips in your Pleasant Grove kitchen, this might seem a minor inconvenience. However, this can cause problems with dry rotting or microbial activity from the water itself, but other issues can also present themselves. Cords to heavy appliances often become nicked and crimped when someone moves them, and sometimes creating tiny breaks in the insulation.
 
If your refrigerator cord contains such breaks, your home can eventually become victim to Fire Damage in Orem. Electrical fires can melt the exterior of the appliance that caused the fire, as well. We can mitigate all of the damage caused by such fires and get your home wholly restored. Our employees are certified by the IICRC and understand the complexities that can result from such fires.

Electrical shock can pose a risk when trying to put out such a fire. Always shut off the electricity at the breaker before attempting to extinguish a small fire like this. More massive fires require you to evacuate your home and call the fire department from a phone outside of your home. Staying safe in an emergency can seem difficult when valuable items tempt you to return for their removal. However, calling emergency services can save your life. We can help you restore the majority of your belongings.
 
Items that were located in other areas of your home can become covered in a film from the fire. When plastic composites burn, greasy soot spews out of the fire, covering everything in your home. We get to work cleaning this away from your belongings and home furnishings. Allowing it to settle allows it to cause finishes to become ruined. We clean small items at our facility after boxing them up and restore larger ones at your home. We compile inventory sheets to allow you to find anything we take away from your home. These same sheets can help you return items to their original location, as well.

SERVPRO of Utah County can restore your home after events involving fire damage, as well as other disasters. Our number, (801) 785-5228, puts you in contact with our caring professionals 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

Did storm water wreak havoc in your Alpine home? Call SERVPRO today!!

House on water Don't let unwanted stormwater ruin your day!! Call SERVPRO Fast!!

Storm Water

Alpine residents often have to deal with storms and other adverse weather that comes quickly out of the nearby mountains. The excess rainfall quickly turns into flood waters which can cost thousands of dollars in damage and loss.
 
Simply put, there is no one better prepared for a flood in Alpine than SERVPRO. As a member of a designated Large Loss Response Team, our restoration technicians have the equipment and training to deal with a water-related disaster of any size. These specialists that travel around the country are the same ones we send to clean and restore area homes.
 
No matter the amount of the flood water, our technicians start by reducing the health threat. Outside flooding contains soil, animal wastes, and other contaminants, so they spray the surface of the water and nearby property with a chemical agent to minimize any live bacteria.
 
Now, team members work to remove the flood water quickly. They start with commercial pumps that can clear most homes from several hours to several days, depending on the volume and situation. The pumps do not draw water out of carpets and from between floorboards, however. To finish the task, we utilize extraction wands. SERVPRO personnel has access to the standard wand extractor which is a commercial grade water vacuum, but these have adjustable speeds to control suction and a heater which can slowly dry wood floors or fibers as they draw out water.
 
Unlike wood floors, our teams cannot guarantee that carpets are safe to use after exposure to flood water. The only way to keep them from posing a further threat to a home is to remove and dispose of them.
 
Next, our teams clean every exposed surface. Using our extensive inventory of anti-bacterial and other cleaning agents, and equipment, technicians can restore much or the structural and personal property affected by a flood. If a personal item or piece of building material is not restorable, they dispose of it according to Utah and Federal regulations.
 
These are simply the first steps we take to return area homes to their pre-flood condition. If your home was affected by flooding, no matter how small the amount of water, contact SERVPRO of North Utah County at (801) 785-5228 today. We are here for you.
