empty school hallway A job which needed to be completed quickly to meet the start of the school year.

Our school recently needed us to clean their emergency rooms. This wasn’t your usual emergency like flood, fire, storm damage. Instead, it was a job which needed to be completed quickly to meet the start of the school year.

Faculty and teachers complained about the musky smell that was evident in the building when it was being opened for the 2021-22 school year after a year of lockdown. We were called in to assess the quality of air in the building. We were able to detect impurities with just a few days remaining before the school year begins.

We brought in techs from all over the world and a management team to help us ensure that our school was ready for students by the first day.

Call us for any home and/or inspections!

SERVPRO can help in this time of crisis.

Our team quickly arrived on the spot and stored all the retail goods in the affected areas, saving the owners thousands.

Our knowledge and the drying equipment available enabled us to start mitigation processes within 45 minutes. The crew then began taking preventative measures that would protect the structure from future flooding, knowing that there was a chance of another heavy rainstorm the day after.

Once the drying process was completed, the contracting team took control and began to repair the damaged structure and prevent future flooding.

Restoring Your Home From A Water Damage.

Indoor flood caused by broken pipes Without extraction, dragging wet carpets and rugs from a property can cause water damage and worsen an already difficult situation.

SERVPRO is a water extraction expert company that extracts water from carpets and rugs that have been soaked.

This can be a problem for property managers, adjusters, insurance agents and other professionals. It will almost certainly end up being thrown out. First, a heavy carpet or rug that is wet requires more effort to move and remove.

Second, water extraction reduces the weight significantly. This makes it easier for technicians to lift the material and reduces injuries on site. By removing water, we can reduce the total weight of the waste, which helps to lower waste removal fees.

We are effectively removing all water from carpets and rugs that have been wet. This is an essential step to prevent mold growth and structural damage.

Without extraction, dragging wet carpets and rugs from a property can cause water damage and worsen an already difficult situation.

SERVPRO's Odor Control Technicians Know How to Combat Odors After Fire Damage to Your North Kingston Home

Combating odors after fire damage to your North Kingston home can be quite a challenge. SERVPRO technicians apply scientific principles to understand the behavior of odor particles and design an effective deodorizing strategy to suit the specific conditions. 

SERVPRO technicians understand that odor-causing smoke particles formed after fire damage to your North Kingston home can be microscopic. The smaller size of the particles allows them to penetrate deeper into porous surfaces after extensive smoke damage. The deodorant particles also must be small enough to reach the odor-causing particles and neutralize them. However, size is not the only factor determining how the odor-causing particles penetrate materials. 

Factors That Help Smoke Particles Penetrate Materials in Fire Damaged Homes in North Kingston 

Some of the important factors helping smoke particles penetrate surfaces of your North Kingston home that SERVPRO technicians recognize include-

  • The porosity of the surface- Porous surfaces are more likely to absorb odors than non-porous surfaces. 
  • Amount of the residue- Heavier the residue after a fire and smoke damage, the greater the surface area of material it can impact and more difficult it is for SERVPRO techs to neutralize
  • Exposure time- Longer exposure of the residue allows the odor-causing particles to penetrate deeper, making it difficult for SERVPRO to deodorize during house fire cleanup. 
  • Heat- Hotter particles can penetrate surfaces deeper. Also, porous surfaces tend to expand due to heat, making it easy for the particles to penetrate.

SERVPRO Offers Quick and Efficient Water Removal from North Kingston Homes 

Water removal from your North Kingston home needs to happen fast to prevent any secondary damage to the structure. Hiring a professional restoration company like SERVPRO can help you not only to get rid of the water but also residual moisture and lingering odors. 

After water removal from your North Kingston home, SERVPRO technicians ensure that the structure and contents are dried properly. We use various equipment such as dehumidifiers, air movers, and heating equipment to create conditions that favor faster drying during water cleanup. Higher humidity of air slows down the drying process, and it is important to control it for faster drying. 

Common Terms You Will Hear SERVPRO Techs Use During Water Damage Remediation of your North Kingston Home

Drying is a major part of the restoration process. SERVPRO techs can dry the structures so efficiently as they understand Psychrometry- the study of air and its properties. Understanding some terms might help you understand the process better.

  • Humidity ratio- It is the actual amount of moisture in the air. It is represented in grains of moisture per pound (gpp) of air. SERVPRO techs aim to create conditions with a low humidity ratio so that drying can be faster during water damage repairs at your North Kingston home. 
  • Relative humidity (RH)- The quantity of moisture the air currently holds at a given temperature. It is usually represented as a percentage of the maximum moisture the air can hold when saturated at the same temperature. SERVPRO technicians try to control the RH of the air by altering the temperature using portable heaters. 
  • Dew Point- The temperature at which water vapor from air begins to condense. SERVPRO tech always keeps the drying temperature above the dew point to avoid condensate formation.

SERVPRO Offers Newport Residents a Fast and Trustworthy Water Removal after Flood Damage

Flood damage to your Newport home necessitates water removal from your property before SERVPRO professionals can begin the restoration process. Floodwater often contains suspended solids and other debris that can be removed with the help of special pumps. 

SERVPRO technicians use different extraction equipment to remove standing water after flood damage to your Newport home. The equipment used depends on the amount of water to be removed, solids present, and how high the water needs to be lifted. While some pumps can handle a lot of suspended solids, others have a higher water lifting capacity. SERVPRO techs also pay close attention to the level of contamination in the water and take appropriate precautions during water cleanup

Types of Pumps SERVPRO Uses During Flood Restoration of Your Newport Home

Some of the most common pumps that we use in Newport homes include-

  • Self-Priming trash pumps- These are used during water removal services when there is much material suspended in water. However, they have a limited lifting capacity and are useful when the suction lift is less than 25′. The pumps are powered using gas or diesel and variable in sizes. 
  • High-pressure pumps- SERVPRO technicians use these pumps when a high lift is desired, but they don't handle suspended solids well. We use them to extract water from basements and underground garages. 
  • Submersible pumps- One of the most common types of pumps that SERVPRO techs use. They run on electricity, are quieter than other pumps, and available in a wide range of capacity (can remove 100 to 18,000 gallons per minute). We use these when water is removed from occupied spaces.
