Commercial SERVPRO Works Hard to Keep Your Irvington Business in Bussiness after a Water-Damaging Event Yikes!! A Water Loss? The SERVPRO Green Van Works to Keep Your Irvington Business Open for Business

Plumbing Breaks Cause Large Losses in Irvington Diners

Plumbing is a reliable construction element throughout the Portland area, but in aging buildings, these can also be among the most potentially problematic areas. Avoiding water loss incidents is not as simple as it might seem to be, and even with secure plumbing, the right conditions could break or split portions of this network to cause substantial damages. From freezing to fluctuations in pressure, you must get plumbing breaches repaired in your diner as promptly as possible to protect both your eatery and those that might be inside.

Diners throughout the Irvington area are typically open 24 hours a day, making it a challenge to address even minuscule water damage situations in the off-hours. Our SERVPRO team can work to isolate the affected areas and have effective containment strategies to keep water impacts from reaching new areas of your business while we get to work on extraction, drying, and cleaning. With the result that a disaster like this could have on your business and its patrons, we strive to offer you an excellent and efficient approach to the situation.

If you do have to shut your doors, our team can ensure that they do not remain closed for long. We understand the damage that having your business closed to your customers does to both your profits and reputation, so the longer the building remains closed, the more likely it never reopens. Our SERVPRO technicians have unique and practical approaches to remove the threats as promptly as possible.

We rely heavily on our advanced equipment and technology during a water loss incident. To protect your flooring, booths, and tables within the diner from exposure and moisture damage, our professionals must identify where the plumbing break has occurred to access this point specifically and get it repaired. We have sophisticated moisture readers and leak detection devices to prevent any delays that could be costlier for your diner.

Water damage can be destructive to a business in more than just the physical sense, so you can count on our SERVPRO of Northeast Portland team to make these losses “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (503) 287-4542.

Storm Damage Storms, Tree Damage, and Your Portland Home SERVPRO of Northeast Portland can handle all of your water restoration needs- from removing trees to restoring your home.

Tree Damage That Can Lead to Flooding in Portland Homes

With the severity of storms that can pass through the Northwest, Portland has seen many fierce windstorms and damaging systems in recent years. With the intensity of these events, many homes have fallen victim to circumstances like falling trees or getting struck with debris. Both of these situations can prove damaging to your property, but trees can affect the house in many ways, even after the storm has passed. Addressing these concerns should happen swiftly by trained professionals with the storm disaster relief experience to help.

Our professionals have disaster relief training and a central location to help out the entirety of the Greater Portland area within hours of when flood damage disasters strike. Our readiness for these emergencies can help us to dispatch the right professionals to start mitigation like extraction and drying while other members of our team work to address situations that could continually damage your home structurally, like the presence of a fallen tree that has left an opening for water flow.

We know how important getting the job done quickly and correctly is whenever your home gets faced with the effects of an emergency, and that is why our SERVPRO team offers a comprehensive approach to disaster relief. This system not only includes effective mitigation for the flooding that can occur in your house after tree damages but the removal of the tree and the repairs of your property as well. We have a team of licensed and insured contractors with years of experience in the building trades that can quickly determine the work that your property needs and how to fully repair it.

Our SERVPRO professionals must also address any flooding that has occurred from the opening in your house. Often these situations involve clean water, so when possible, our team must only extract standing water and begin our rapid drying solutions with our efficient equipment. Controlled demolition in this situation would only be necessary when the saturation has persisted too long for the material to get saved.

Tree damages can present unique effects for your home, but our SERVPRO of Northeast Portland can help in every sense to make this situation “Like it never even happened.” Give our team a call today at (503) 287-4542.

IAQ Concerns That Make Life Difficult After a Portland Housefire

While you have many things to worry about after a fire sweeps through your Portland home, many homeowners might not realize that it could be unsafe for them to be in the house until certain restorative actions have taken place. Without the proper assessment of damage and risks after a fire completed by competent professionals like ours, many risks and concerns can go unchecked or unnoticed and present health risks and dangers to those exposed. Among the most common of these are indoor air quality concerns that could be damaging to your health.

As fires move throughout a Portland home, many materials and products can get caught up in the blaze and affect the fire damages that result. With indoor air quality concerns, these often develop by the combustion of specific materials or the presence of chemicals and other substances turned into a gaseous presence in the house. Our SERVPRO professionals can work quickly to identify these risks, but also begin this assessment with full personal protective equipment to keep our technicians safe.

Air purification is the necessary next step in addressing these concerns when they get found by our SERVPRO team. This phase is a portion of the mitigation work that your home requires after a fire occurs, and involves the use of our sophisticated equipment to begin filtering and cleaning the air in the exposed portions of the property. Hydroxyl generators and ozone machines are vital in this step, as they can address multiple concerns simultaneously.

With onboard HEPA filters, these two distinctly different machines have a similar goal. Their primary purpose is to filter out contaminants, debris, dust, and particulates from the environment. In a secondary sense, they can both play a significant role in reducing or eliminating lingering odors as well.

We know that there are many hurdles involved in fully recovering any property after fire loss incidents. You can count on the fast response and experience of our SERVPRO of Northeast Portland technicians to make the effects in your home, including IAQ threats, “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (503) 287-4542.

Let the Professionals Handle the Water Damage to Your Home in Portland

Water damage can occur to any home at any time. It does not take a natural disaster for your walls to be saturated with water and your belongings soaking wet. Grasping the full impact of a water event can be overwhelming, especially when you are unsure of how it affects structural elements and their integrity. Allowing a professional team to respond quickly and assess the damage and its ramifications is the first step in mitigating your losses and restoring your home.

If your home is the victim of water damage in Portland, SERVPRO is ready to help. Our team is prepared to jump into action upon receiving your call, day or night. We are available 24/7 to respond to your emergency and begin the process of extraction and drying as soon as possible. Leaving standing water unattended only exacerbates the problems associated with wet surfaces such as drywall and carpets. Wet materials all become breeding grounds for mold and bacteria as they weaken due to the moisture and humidity.

Some homeowners attempt to extract water by renting equipment at their local home improvement store, but they risk leaving water residue behind. Our SERVPRO crew specializes in extraction techniques and have at our disposal a variety of options. Whether your job requires a truck-mounted pump, a submersible pump, a handheld wand extractor or a combination of all of these, our team is trained to utilize all of them.

When the drywall is affected, commonly known as wicking, our SERVPRO team works diligently in removing all damaged portions so they can be replaced. A common mistake is assuming that damage stops at the highest water level when, in reality, drywall can absorb water well beyond where it was directly in touch with it.

For all your water damage needs, SERVPRO of Northeast Portland is here to help. Call us at (503) 287-4542 and let us leave your home “Like it never even happened.”
