Spring has sprung and so has fire season!

5/5/2021 (Permalink)

Spring is upon us and so is that time of year when people in Southeastern Idaho start doing their controlled burns to rid the ditches of dead leaves, tree limbs and other debris. Although controlled burns are a normal and very common event, sometimes it can be a little bit on the uncontrollable side.

Many things can go wrong when you mix fire with wind. Recently in Idaho Falls firefighter were called out to a field west of Idaho Falls. About 1.5 acres of dry grass became inflamed after a controlled burn had gotten out of hand. With the strong winds in Idaho Falls controlled burns can quickly become dangerous when they are near homes, businesses, or dry fields. To help avoid a burn from becoming out of control you should always check your local fire department for burn ban bulletins as well as checking your local weather station to look out for wind advisories.

The toilet decided to overflow

Flooding can happen almost anywhere! One of the more common places that water damage happens is a residential property. That being the case because they have SO many different outlets for water to become a problem. Kitchens, bathrooms and sprinkler systems are some of the major areas of issues.

For example, a call came in today from an older woman who was in distress over the fact that her basement bathroom had flooded into the other rooms causing a large amount of water damage in her walls, flooring, and carpet. A toilets valve broke and the water started to overflow. SERVPRO knew that with this kind of loss we had to get started ASAP. We sent our guys out to her home within 30 minutes to start to evaluate the disaster.

We realized very quickly that the amount of rooms affected were way more than the customer had thought. We started extracting the water and setting up air movers right away. Thank fully with that being done we were able to get the loss under control quickly and efficiently. This disaster could have been a lot worse if we would not have been able to get the water out as quickly as we did.

If you do have a fire, water, mold or asbestos disaster give SERVPRO a call today at (208) 523-5365. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

After the huge and unexpected storms hit Oklahoma City our SERVPRO team was asked to fly out and help assess and fix the damage. Oklahoma City was devastated by two major record breaking winter storms in February that caused a large amount of disasters for residential and commercial buildings. These storms caused hazardous driving conditions, rolling blackouts, water main breaks and a ton of other issues.

Our franchise owner Skylar along with a crew of guys flew and drove out there ASAP to see what we could do to help. The damage that the storms left behind was terrible. We have been working on everything from schools, to libraries, to hospitals. Water damage and water leaks were the two biggest issues we had dealt with. With water comes mold so extracting the water and controlling the leaks was extremely important. We had to work fast and efficient to get things under control.

Water damage in Oklahoma

3/2/2021 (Permalink)

Our teams flew out to Oklahoma City this weekend to help with the terrible disasters that they were experiencing. Oklahoma City was hit with two major storms which resulted in leaking and breaking pipes. SERVPRO was asked to fly down to Oklahoma to help aid in this disaster and that is exactly what we did!  

Water damage can cause a variety of different problems, but one of the biggest problems it can cause would be mold! Mold develops when surfaces become moist. It really thrives in dark places like under baseboards and in walls. Mold can start growing within 24-48 hours after a flood or water leak. The amount of mold growth also depends on the material or surface the water lands on as well as the moisture level and temperatures.

We have moisture readers that will tell us what areas have been affected by water as well as mold testing to determine what kind of mold is growing. All of this will play a factor in what we need to remove or dry out.

If you have a fire, water, mold or asbestos disaster give SERVPRO a call today. We have highly trained professionals ready to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
