Langley Smoke and Soot Cleanup

4/14/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Langley Smoke and Soot Cleanup Smoke and Soot Damage Can Cause a Pervasive Odor in Your Langley Home.

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Langley will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Does your home have a mould problem?

5/17/2016 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Does your home have a mould problem? Mould in the attic in Langley residential house before& after photo

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.
  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation

If you see signs of mould call us today-SERVPRO of Langley 778-552-7762

Water Damage in Langley

4/14/2014 (Permalink)

Water Damage Water Damage in Langley Langley Water Damage

The unfortunate reality is that a water damage crisis can take place at any moment. Whether it’s leaking pipes or a broken dishwasher, unexpected flood damage is a frightening and traumatic experience. In addition to excess water creating structural damage to your residence, it can make the air circulating in the property unhealthy and encourage the rapid growth of bugs and mold.  

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency mold may be more likely to make some people with asthma, allergies, or other breathing problems sick. At SERVPRO of Langley we know you want things to return back to normal as soon as possible when flood damage in Langley happens so our experienced technicians will come into your home, industrial, or commercial property and assess the damage so they can create your own personalized restoration plan for flood damage repair.

Our technicians are professionally trained to extract water, encourage structural drying, and perform comprehensive site inspections with documentation. While you are waiting for the technician here are a couple of tips to make your water damage cleanup process as smooth as possible.

1.      Wear goggles and gloves if you decide to do any cleaning. If you touch mold spores with your bare hands you can trigger an allergic reaction or respiratory problems.

2.      Make sure to wear boots, long pants, and a short-sleeved shirt. You don’t want to get any “grey” water, water with biological or physical contaminants on your skin.

3.      Go to the local hardware store and pick up a N-95 respirator mask (around $15.00) so you do not breathe in any mold spores.  

At SERVPRO of Langley our teams are dedicated to drying and restoring your structure as soon as possible so you can forget that this whole mess ever happened in the first place. We are the experts for flood damage repair in Langley.
