Spring Season Exterior Maintenance Checklist

4/12/2022 (Permalink)

The spring season is right around the corner, so it’s time to assess your property for lingering issues caused by winter weather.  This should be done for homes and businesses alike.  When the temperature begins to rise, thawing occurs, so the issues tend to show themselves right about now.  Leaving these issues alone may lead to potential damage down the road.  Follow this checklist to insulate your property against springtime damage. 

1.) Roof Check

A solid rooftop is one of the main pieces of your home. Guaranteeing it is strong and watertight is vital to keeping your whole home dry. Leaks can be caused by even the smallest gaps or tears in your shingles.  Inspect your entire roof to ensure that there are no weak areas like rips, tears, or missing shingles.  Repair anything as soon as possible.  You should also clean your gutters of any debris or obstructions.  This will allow your roof drainage system to function as intended.

2.) Structure Check

Check for any issues in the foundation, both inside and outside.  These can easily let excess water in.  Exterior walls should be checked as well, this time for missing siding, cracked siding, or compromised areas around your windows.  Make any necessary repairs, such as caulking around windows or doors.  Not only can moisture enter through these gas, but even slight airflow can affect your home heating or cooling costs.

Water Loss In A Senior Living Community

3/24/2022 (Permalink)

For the most part, senior living communities are drama free.  But that was not the case recently, when a sprinkler head burst at a facility due to a malfunction.  Water began to pour out of the sprinklers on the third floor and accumulate.  The pooling water, with nowhere to go, seeped down to the second floor, at which point building maintenance was alerted. The amount of water was too much for the on-site staff to handle so they called SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport to help with the issue.

We arrived quickly with the necessary tools and equipment to efficiently remediate the damage.  First, our technicians extracted as much water as possible from both the second and third floors.  Next, our team set a network of air movers and dehumidifiers to maximize airflow and drying potential.  A day or two later, once the moisture was back to satisfactory levels, we began to address any structural damage that had occurred, like affected wood and drywall, as well as flooring.

Condo Owners: Who Is Responsible For Storm Damage?

3/23/2022 (Permalink)

During and after a storm event, the building that you live in may suffer from storm-related water damage.  If your unit suffers damage as a result, you may think that the HOA will be covering the cost of repairs.  You may be wrong.  On the other hand, you may also be wrong if you think that you are on the hook.  Read below to see how these situations can play out.

What The HOA Is Responsible For

Normally, the HOA is responsible for maintaining everything other than individual units.  This means that everything outside your unit should be their problem.  For example, water damage caused by a roof leak would usually be covered by the HOA.

What You Are Responsible For

Unit owners are usually responsible for maintaining their own condo interior and systems that exclusively service their unit.  These are things like water pipes and plumbing drains. While not usually affected by storm damage, these areas are usually the responsibility of the condo unit owner to fix.

You can mitigate your risk for financial burden by carrying an insurance policy that covers water and storm damage.

Does Your Office Need A Deep Clean?

3/7/2022 (Permalink)

Spring is basically here.  Temperatures are on the rise, and some trees are starting to show buds.  So it may be time to consider a deep clean of your office.  There are a number of reasons commercial clients choose to have their spaces cleaned professionally around this time of year.

COVID and other decontamination

This is a great time to push the reset button on the microscopic cleanliness of your office.  The high sickness season is almost over, so start the year off fresh by having your office deep cleaned.  This service includes all high-touch areas like doorknobs, counters, and desks. 

Aesthetics

Sometimes, businesses would like deep cleaning for cosmetic reasons.  No major damage event has occurred, but they may still be a good candidate for deep cleaning services.  During the winter, salt and sand are tracked in, which can give carpeting discoloration.  Sometimes dirt and dust become trapped in the fibers of carpeting, and vacuuming alone cannot fix the issue. 

General cleaning

Sometimes, even with our best efforts, offices can get cluttered.  The culprit could be files, boxes, or many other items.  We can come into your office and remove any unwanted materials so that you have more space.

It is important to contact a certified damage remediation professional as soon as you are aware of property damage.

Commercial Ice Blasting Services

3/3/2022 (Permalink)

Have you ever heard of ice blasting?

If not, it is a service that has many applications in a commercial setting.  Similar to sandblasting, millions of tiny particles are propelled out of a wand onto a surface.  The tiny particles act as an abrasion agent that can remove a multitude of materials from a surface.  SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport offers this service to businesses for both emergency and nonemergency situations.

Emergency

After certain property damage occurs, surfaces inside your business may need cleaning that cannot be achieved by normal cleaning procedures.  Ice blasting is a great option in this case. One such situation is after a fire.  Smoke and soot residue may settle on wood beams or brick walls that are otherwise unaffected by the fire.  In this case, we may use ice blasting to clean the surface of the offending odor and discoloration. 

Non Emergency

Sometimes, businesses would like deep cleaning for cosmetic reasons.  No major damage event has occurred, but they may still be a good candidate for ice blasting services.  We can use this technology on building fronts and facades, as well as the sidewalk near the storefront.  In this way, we have cleaned gum and other debris from many municipal sidewalks throughout Fairfield County. 

It is important to contact a certified damage remediation professional as soon as you are aware of property damage.

Wastewater Cleanup In Bridgeport

One of the most potentially harmful water damages is wastewater damage.  On top of the water causing damage, the harmful bacteria within the water can cause adverse health effects if you come into contact with it.  Often termed “Category 3” water, it can contain E. coli and other bad bacteria that you should avoid at all costs.

This is why it is important to call in the assistance of a professional water damage remediation company.  Both to combat the negative effects of water damage, and to do it in a safe way that eliminates the risk of contamination to you and your family or employees.  Our SERVPRO technicians are trained in proper remediation techniques, and are equipped with the best tools in the industry.

Property Damage From Lightning Strikes

2/21/2022 (Permalink)

Although rare, lightning strikes can cause significant property damage, both from the strike itself, as well as resulting side effects.

Direct damage

The physical impact and power of a lightning strike can do serious physical damage to the structure of a home or business.  Lightning can fracture concrete, brick, and stone upon impact.  It can also shred through wood, as it has a high water content.  Roofs and foundations are the main areas that can be detrimental if struck.  Other non-structural elements such as windows can be broken with this type of damage.  The electricity from the lightning can also spark a fire that can get out of hand quickly.  Electronics in the home or business may be irreparably broken by a lightning strike as well.

Indirect damage

If lightning strikes your home or business, and the electrical system is affected, it could cause surges in power that can lead to overheating and sparking.  This can start a fire within the home or business.  If structural elements are affected, like a roof or foundation, water damage will be easier to suffer in the future. After a lightning strike, it is important to have your electrical system inspected for damage by a professional.
