When Tempted to Fight Fire with Fire Remember the Fire Department Usually Uses Water

When confronted in an unpleasant, aggressive manner, our initial reaction is usually to respond in the same manner. Before responding take a moment to think about what you are trying to accomplish.  Instead of responding in the same manner, compose your thoughts, remain calm and address the situation in a manner that will result in an agreement or compromise.

To Handle Yourself, Use Your Head; To Handle Others, Use Your Heart

-Eleanor Roosevelt

When dealing with your own life make decisions based on logic, analytical judgment of pros and cons rather than emotions. When you handle others, handle them with love, compassion, respect and understanding, as they should infer their own logic.

Tips for Drying Books Damaged by Water

Following these tips won’t guarantee recovery of all items, but should help you minimize the damage.

  • Set books on their tops or bottoms and open them up like a fan. Avoid standing opened books on the side edges.
  • Set the book on the driest side first, then as it dries, rotate it every couple of hours or so.
  • Place wax paper in between the covers of the book and the pages. The wax paper should be slightly larger than the size of the cover. Replace often to ensure faster drying. 
  • Once the pages are no longer damp, close the book, place it on a hard surface and place a weight on top to keep the pages as flat as possible.

Space Heater Safety

Space Heaters Provide Warmth, but If Used Incorrectly They Can Be Dangerous.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, space heaters cause 43 percent of home heating fires each year, which are the second leading cause of fire-related deaths. In addition to the risk of fire, space heaters that use kerosene, propane, and natural gas pose an additional risk of releasing carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), and nitrogen dioxide into the air if they aren't properly vented, which can lead to serious health problems and even death.

What You Can Do to Prevent Your Pipes from Freezing

Allow the Faucet to Drip

If you are afraid a pipe will freeze, you can open the faucet fed by that pipe just a bit so the faucet drips slightly. Allowing the faucet to be open like this relieves pressure in the system. Allowing the faucet to be open will prevent this pressure from building up and thus keep the pipe from bursting. If the faucet is served by both hot and cold water pipes, open both faucet taps slightly, or set a single-handle faucet to warm.

The Nicotine in Tobacco That Stains Skin and Teeth Will Also Stain Your Walls

Homes inhabited by smokers may have brown or yellow stains or streaks on the walls from years of cigarette smoke.

How Does Ozone Remove Odors?

Smells from house fires, mold, decaying organic materials, trash, cigarette smoking, and other sources are present as small molecules, particulates, and bacteria that float through the air and attach themselves to carpets, walls, ceilings, furniture, and other surfaces in your home.

Ozone removes the smell and odors by reacting and destroying the offensive smelling particulates, molecules, and bacteria. The ozone chemically reacts with them, breaking them down into molecules, particulates, and bacteria that don’t smell.

Mold Containment Prevent Cross Contamination in a Commercial Property

If you are dealing with mold contamination in a commercial property, a mold cleanup service may recommend containment. Containment can help prevent cross-contamination, such as the spread of mold to a new environment or the reintroduction of mold spores back into a structure that has been treated for mold.

What to Do If Lightning Strikes Your House

Ignited materials in the roof or walls may start with a slow burn before turning into a full house fire. A lightning fire is particularly dangerous for this reason, and you should always take steps to ensure the safety of your home and family.

  • Call your local fire department or 911 if you smell smoke. The fire department can perform an inspection and search for issues.
  • Inspect your roofing and siding for damage from the strike itself.

Getting an Estimate on Fire Restoration

When a fire damages your home, you want to know how much the repairs will cost. This type of estimate relies on a variety of factors, including:

  • Who does the repairs
  • How long the fire burned
  • What fueled the fire
  • How long the restoration takes

Although so many elements affect the price, you may be able to get a quote if you work with the right people.

Doubt Kills More Dreams Than Failure Ever Will

When you doubt, your mind believes what you feel and think and you will start to program yourself that your dreams are impossible to achieve.

Failure typically motivates you to try harder so that you succeed the next time you attempt to reach your dreams.  Doubt can sidetrack from your objectives. This can cause you to turn down the wrong path, or even to give up entirely.

SERVPRO’s Advanced Technology: Hydroxyl Generator

Deodorization & Air Purifier

The Hydroxyl Generator is one of the most scientifically-advanced pieces of equipment we use to combat malodors and leave a property deodorized following biohazard, fire or water damage events, including protein fires, floods, dead body situations, skunk odors, pet urine odors, musty odors and many types of odors.

How it Works:

UVA rays are emitted from the titanium dioxide photocatalytic lamps, where they then pass through a permanent anatase coated super reactor screen, forming electron hole pairs that react with water and oxygen in the air to form free electrons and hydroxyl radicals that then decompose and eliminate organic and inorganic gases and air pollutants.

SERVPRO’s Advanced Technology: Ozone Generator

Deodorization

The Ozone Generator is used to oxidize organic odors such as smoke, mold, pet odor, cigarette smoke, trash and more without chemicals. These odors and other sources are present as small molecules, particulates, and bacteria that float through the air and attach themselves to carpets, walls, ceilings, furniture, and other surfaces in a home.

Ozone removes the smell and odors by reacting and destroying the offensive smelling particulates, molecules, and bacteria. The ozone chemically reacts with them breaking them down into molecules and particulates and bacteria that don’t smell.

Mold Can Grow Hidden Behind Wallpaper

Given food, moisture, and a dark space, mold can thrive in a variety of spaces. Unfortunately, that includes spaces that are hidden from your day-to-day view, like behind your wallpaper.

If you notice peeling edges of your wallpaper, in a moisture-heavy room or smell a moldy odor, you may have hidden mold. Lift a corner, near the floorboard or other out-of-sight areas to look behind the wallpaper. Keep in mind that removing the wallpaper can lead to a large release of spores, so before removing all of it, consider hiring a remediation company.

The Best Way To Stay Warm In Your Home When Your Heating System Is Down

Pick the smallest room in the house and designate it as the warm room.

Cover the walls and windows in blankets, towels, curtains, space blankets… whatever you have. Now, shut all the other doors. If there are doorways seal off the room and keep the heat in with you. A small room with low ceilings will keep the heat from drifting up or away. Family members and pets will all generate body heat and warm the room.

We applaud your efforts, but you may not have the proper training and or tools to successfully perform this work.

There are consequences for not performing mitigation services properly and mold damage should always be at the back of your mind. When the mitigation process is not carried out correctly, drying will not happen and pockets of moisture will be left in various corners of the house. This will lead to the eventual development of mold.

Water Damage as a Result of a Dishwasher Leak?

Are you one of the unfortunate homeowners dealing with dishwasher water damage?

Most of us have found out the hard way that regular soap used in a dishwasher causes an explosion of bubbles. Dishwasher leaks can be as obvious as soap bubbles making their way across the kitchen floor or start as a slow drip that may not be immediately noticed

Stopping leaks before they cause damage is ideal, but depending on the situation, is not always possible.

Common causes of dishwasher leaks:

  • Worn gaskets
  • Dishwasher not level
  • Wrong dishwashing soap used
  • Broken door
  • Defective dishwasher tub

As the story goes, when Balder the son of the goddess Frigga, was killed with an arrow made of mistletoe. Frigga was so distraught that her tears turned to white berries, coating the plant and symbolizing her love for him.

Frigga was overjoyed so she blessed the plant and promised a kiss to all who passed beneath it from that day onward.

Cloudy White Rings on Wood Furniture

Heat & Water Stained Wood

Stains and marks made by liquid or steam are usually white or light-colored. That means that they haven’t penetrated much more deeply than through the waxed or polished surface. When the stain is dark, however, it indicates that the liquid has penetrated through the finish on the wood and possibly through to the wood itself. If this is the case, you have more of a fix on your hands.

Those white, cloudy rings on your wood furniture don't have to stay there forever.

Motivational Moment

“Every Accomplishment Starts With The Decision To Try”

-Gail Devers

The greatest accomplishments through the history of mankind all started with the decision to try. Great men and women knew that there was a chance they would fail on their first attempt but they did not allow this to stop them from trying. You will never be successful in anything unless you try, and don't be discouraged if it takes more than one attempt to reach a successful conclusion. Look at any failures as practice attempts, allowing you to get better until you are finally able to cross the finish line and reach your goals.

Motivational Moment

“Eighty Percent of Success is Showing Up.” 

-Woody Allen

Showing up is more than merely putting in a physical appearance. It's also intellectually showing up. Get your head in the game. Your mental presence equates to a desire to take full advantage of the opportunities put in front of you, large or small. This establishes the foundation for success.

Understanding Mold

The Difference Between Mold and Mildew

Mildew can be described as a specific type of mold. Mold is a fungus that contains multiple identical nuclei and grows in the form of black or green patches which penetrate beneath the surface of the affected material. Mildew, on the other hand, has flat growth that remains on the surface where it can be easily removed. While mold usually grows on food or inside permanent structures, such as walls and crawl spaces, mildew is to be found on damp surfaces, paper, fabrics, and various organic materials in your home.

Motivational Moment

“There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.”

-Zig Ziglar

"Taking the stairs" simply means making effort, daily efforts that need to occur in order to hit the pinnacle or apex of success. To "take the elevator" means trying to bypass the hard work and consistent effort needed to make it in sales. The edifice of success has no elevators located in it.

Motivational Moment

 “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”  

-Zig Ziglar

Starting is the most important part of success, even though finishing is often thought of as having arrived. It’s so easy to get caught up in wondering about how things will turn out that we lose sight of getting started. Also, if you worry about failing, or coming up against obstacles along the way, this can deter you from even starting. But all of that is imaginary thinking because you only know what will really happen when you start moving towards your goal and deal with these challenges as you come upon them.

Avoiding Water Damage from Sump Pump Failure

If Your Sump Pump Fails, Your Lansdowne Basement Could Begin to Fill with Water

If you have a basement, your sump pump is often your last line of defense against flooding.  It works by safely diverting water away from your house and is especially important during times of heavy rain when it puts your Lansdowne, PA home at risk of water damage. 

If your sump pump fails, you could find your basement under water.  When this happens, it is important to act fast! Water damage can be a progressive issue and if not dealt with in a timely manner, this could lead to structural damage, mold and much more.

Beneath the Surface

Mold Beneath Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl is more resilient to water than laminate flooring, because it does not absorb water and is glued down not free floating. If a vinyl floor is affected by water damage, it can be saved depending on the amount of time the water has been dwelling.

Once water has found its way underneath the tiles, the tiles must be removed. Vinyl acts as a vapor barrier and does not allow for evaporation which is needed in the drying process.

Carpet Delamination After A Water Damage In Upper Darby, PA

Carpet Delamination Is A Real Risk.

Carpet has a primary backing and a secondary backing. The secondary backing is the one that is in contact with the floor underneath. Typically, soaked carpets and padding from groundwater flooding requires disposal and then a thorough drying of the floor base.
 
Delamination occurs when the primary backing becomes separated from the secondary backing. There are several causes of delamination, including poor quality manufacturing and improper installation. Another reason is flood damage. Water might cause the bonding glue to break down and the two backings to separate. 

Call SERVPRO of Upper Darby, PA if your carpet has been affected by water damage. (610) 352-0700
