Expediting Cleanup – Why You Need to Hire Professionals for Fire Damage Restoration in Wayne, NE

July 25th, 2017 · No Comments

A fire can be quite destructive, and restoring your home to its pre-loss state afterwards can be a herculean task. If a fire damages your home, contact a professional fire damage restoration firm, like ServiceMaster of Sooland, in Wayne, NE.

Today we’d like to discuss the reasons why handing over this responsibility to professionals is the best choice you can make.

Why fire damage remediation should only be performed by professionals

Fire damage restoration firms have the required manpower, equipment, cleaning products, and expertise to expedite the cleaning process.

It’s worth mentioning here that it’s necessary to conduct clean up and restoration work on an urgent basis since the extent of damage increases as time passes.

The following information details why it’s necessary to perform fire damage clean up as soon as possible after the fire is extinguished.

  • Within a Span of Few Minutes: Fire will result in different residues, and the most concerning of them all will be the acidic soot that starts discoloring and yellowing items made of plastic. Similarly, soot residues will result in the discoloration of small appliances. Moreover, materials like marble and alabaster will be marred because of acidic soot. By quickly initiating fire damage clean up, the fire damage mitigation professionals can prevent additional damage to your property
  • Within a Span of Few Hours: As time passes, acidic soot will continue to damage your belongings. For instance, bath fixtures will start turning yellowish, metals that are not coated will tarnish, and discoloration will take place on appliances as well as the finishing on furniture
  • Within a Span of Few Days: Permanent discoloration will take place due to acidic residues. Such discoloration will be clearly visible on walls. Additionally, corrosion, as well as rusting, will occur. Another problem is irreparable soot staining on different textile materials such as clothing and furniture upholstery
  • Within a Span of Few Weeks: After a few weeks, it’ll become impossible to salvage synthetic carpets exposed to fire damage due to the extent of discoloration that will occur. Similarly, silver plated fixtures will be affected by corrosion, and it’ll be necessary to replace glass items due to the severe etching that will take place resulting from long term contact with acidic soot

If your home has suffered fire damage, you can count on ServiceMaster of Sooland to perform fire damage restoration in the best possible manner.

Our experts have years of experience in fire damage restoration, and we’re equipped with the required industrial grade equipment to expedite the cleanup and restoration process.

Rain Water in the Basement Window Well! Water Damage Restoration in Dakota City, NE

July 11th, 2017 · No Comments

The rain clouds have been something of a permanent fixture in Dakota City, NE. The only real plus side is your grass hasn’t looked so green in a long time. As you pull into the driveway you notice there’s a waterfall spilling from your rain gutter. “That’s odd…” you think, as you don’t remember seeing it this morning when you left. As you sit and stare you realize this waterfall is pouring right into the basement window well. Normally you wouldn’t be too concerned, but this window well is for the window you haven’t been able to close tightly since opening it a few weeks ago to air out the family room.

You hurry inside, face the door to the basement, and take a deep breath. “How bad can it be?” you think to yourself. After all, you don’t remember the waterfall being there this morning, and it wasn’t there last night, so that’s less than 24 hours. You make your way to the basement, and to your dismay, find an identical waterfall cascading from the window to the floor below! The floor is covered with water, and the couch, carpet, and everything else in the room is totally soaked! You quickly make your way to the window, and after a herculean effort and a few choice words, you manage to force the window closed. Mission accomplished, but now what? How do you go about cleaning up this horrific, sloppy mess? Who in the Dakota City, NE area knows what needs to be done for water damage restoration?

An Overloaded Garage Outlet! Fire Damage Restoration in Sioux City, IA

June 12th, 2017 · No Comments

Finally, there’s a rain free weekend in the forecast, the first in about a month, for Sioux City, IA. Your plan is to get outside and get all the yard work done. The grass is almost a mile high and the weeds look like they own the yard. You head into the garage to survey the state of your tools. You get the weed trimmer out and realize it hasn’t been charged so you plug it in while you go mow the lawn. Once you’re done mowing you see that the weed trimmer still isn’t fully charged.

You get the electric pruner out, plug it in, and go work on the bushes and trees that you didn’t get a chance to get to earlier. It doesn’t dawn on you at the time but the power strip you’ve been using is plugged into the garage outlet that is used for everything. While you’re out pruning the pruner suddenly stops. You try unsuccessfully to get it started again. You tug on the extension cord to see if it’s stuck or has been unplugged but it seems fine.

You look back toward the garage and see smoke pouring out and flames licking the ceiling. Once the smoke and dust have cleared you find that the cause of the fire was an overloaded outlet—the same overloaded outlet that you have been relying on since forever to run everything in the garage. Where in Sioux City, IA, can you find fire damage restoration services?
