Why SERVPRO is the Authority on Restoration Services here in Sacramento
Don’t go at your Sacramento damages alone, let us help.
The job of a restorer is to slow down or completely stop damages at the point of arrival, then work to reverse those damages until the property is returned to its pre-incident condition. At times, restoration services can be completed without the need for any replacement materials. In situations where problems with the structure or structural contents are evident, a good restorer identifies these issues accurately and arranges for third-party contractors on the homeowner's behalf. SERVPRO of North Sacramento sets high standards for restoration of fire, water, mold and storm damages by relying on a restore rather than replace approach.
We make a point of explaining to customers that mold spores are a natural part of any home environment. Rather than instantly resorting to expensive, and time-consuming, laboratory testing, SERVPRO act quickly to repair the immediate mold damage in your Sacramento home while putting in place safeguards to put an end to recurring microbial growth incidents. So when you come across mold growth in your home, contact SERVPRO for an expert assessment and remediation procedure from start to finish.
The common causes of mold problems in a home are the presence of residual moisture in cavities behind walls, fittings, or flooring. Water can come from a variety of sources like slow leaks, heavy rainfall, or worn away sealant in wet rooms. When mold spores come into contact with these damp spots, they settle quickly and begin to propagate, causing unpleasant odors and visible colonies. Often, the visible signs of mold infestation are just the tip of the iceberg, which is why SERVPRO restoration service technicians may need to move items around or remove sections of drywall to gain the full picture.
Mold remediation can span hours, days, or weeks in your Sacramento property. During that time, SERVPRO may need to establish quarantines near the affected area. Since mold can germinate overnight, we work hard to shut off the water supply to the infestation. That can be achieved through advanced structural cavity drying equipment or by controlling humidity at a level that discourages microbial growth using dehumidifiers. Porous materials are frequently non-salvageable in an infestation like this but, once the mold is successfully remediated in your Sacramento home, we can replace them to return your home to its preloss condition.
Understanding the behavior of smoke during a fire is crucial to performing an on-time restoration service of fire damage in your Sacramento home. Hot smokes are attracted to cooler surfaces. When they come into contact with those cool surfaces, soot deposits appear causing odor and soiling. During a fire, the temperature of the room rises significantly resulting in smoke pushing into cupboards, cabinets, or drawers. This process means that the bulk of smoke damages are frequently located inside pieces of furniture rather than in the room itself.
SERVPRO restoration services train our technicians to return the interior of furniture to a preloss condition. One of the challenges in restoring rather than replacing furniture is that interior cavities are unfinished. In high-pressure fires, unfinished natural materials are particularly vulnerable and can absorb large amounts of soots or smokes. In inspecting the interior of furniture, SERVPRO technicians can test for the type of soot they are dealing with, as well as how well the surface can cope with cleaning agents.
When working with wood and natural materials, SERVPRO technicians take extra care to preserve their natural condition. In many situations, a wooden structure can be adequately restored using a combination of light sandblasting with a cleaning solution to clear away soiling. In situations where outer finish sustains smoke damage, we can refinish the furniture to its preloss condition at the end of service.
A water loss recovery incident usually involves large quantities of water in an area of the home that is not designed to withstand it. Small gaps in construction between walls and flooring can allow large quantities of water to migrate into the cavities of your home, presenting an immediate mold and odor issue. Dealing with water damage for Sacramento homeowners is a specialty restoration service that requires professional care and attention to complete effectively.
SERVPRO has technicians with qualifications in applied structural drying (ASD.) These qualifications provide a restorer with the tools needed to access cavities in the home and remove residual moisture that may be residing inside. The primary means of drying restricted access areas is by creating air circulation inside the cavity to allow natural evaporation of the offending moisture. Our equipment incorporates heating elements to speed up the evaporation process further and get your home back to its pre-incident condition.
There is some minor deconstruction required to efficiently drywall cavities, which is why Sacramento homeowners should seek professional restoration services. We must remove the baseboard of the wall so that we can drill small holes into the wall without affecting the aesthetic appearance of your home. From there we can attach injectidry equipment or use rapid air-movers fitted with a flex hose to dry the interior cavity thoroughly. Once drying is complete, we can replace the baseboard safe in the knowledge that your property is safeguarded from secondary issues like microbial growth.
Road overflows can result in backed-up sewage water entering your property. Emergency restoration for storm damage in Orlando is available twenty-four hours a day via our call-line. Since contamination in water poses a real risk to your health, we advise that you immediately contact SERVPRO on discovering blackwater in your Sacramento home. Our technicians are equipped with the right personal protective equipment (PPE) to enter the affected area without risking infection from harmful pathogens.
Containment of the affected area is essential to gaining the upper hand in a flood situation. SERVPRO technicians can remove or block furniture to remove it from standing water quickly. Using submersible pumps, we can transport much of the contaminated water supply to an open sewer point. However, any porous materials that have come into contact with black water must be discarded and replaced to avoid cross-contamination.
Our restoration service encompasses the demolition of drywall. We remove the affected material at up to two feet above the standing water level to ensure any pathogens that may have been absorbed by the material are entirely removed. SERVPRO technicians can then thoroughly disinfect the affected area of your Sacramento home before deodorizing and then replacing the removed drywall with new material to bring your home back to what it was before flood water exposure.
