Leading Causes of Water Damage

11/8/2018 (Permalink)

When you think of the destruction a fire can cause in your home, water damage probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. However, an inferno can lead to some serious issues requiring water damage restoration. The technicians at SERVPRO of NW Monroe County have shared a few ways they have been called for water damage and extraction after house fires in Rochester, NY.

There are a few reasons serious water damage can be a larger concern for you after a house fire than the damage caused by the flames themselves:

  • Hoses & Sprinklers: Often, any attempts to put out the flames requires copious amounts of water. If you have fire sprinklers installed in your home, the flames will trigger those sprinklers to douse the entire home in water. If the fire department is called, they may need to use high-pressure hoses to drown the flames. In either case, water damage restoration should be completed as soon as possible. The longer the water sits in the home, the more likely it will lead to warped wood and mold.
  • Burst Pipes: The flames in a house fire can quickly rise to extreme temperatures, which is sometimes too much for your plumbing to handle. Serious fires can actually melt your pipes, while less severe ones may just cause leaks or rupture weak spots in the plumbing (at fixtures or connections between pipes). Turning off the water supply to your home as soon as possible after a fire is the best way to stop these leaks until you’re able to repair damaged plumbing.
  • Storm Damage: It’s not uncommon for lightning strikes or downed power lines in severe storms to cause both fires and flooding from rain in a home and furthermore, cause water damages.

If you have had some type of home emergency cause water damage to your home, it’s best to have a restoration technician take a look. You may need fire, mold, or water damage restoration, or any combination of the three. Contact SERVPRO of NW Monroe County at (585) 723-1990 as soon as possible after the emergency to avoid further destruction to the home. You can also find the team online and on Facebook.

Benefits of Having a Generator Handy

11/8/2018 (Permalink)

With storm season swiftly approaching New York, SERVPRO of NW Monroe County has been emphasizing the importance of emergency storm preparedness. As the Rochester, NY, area’s leading storm damage restoration experts, they are very familiar with the risks posed by storms, including the best ways to prepare for them. Here, they focus on the benefits of having a backup generator.

5 Benefits of Having a Backup Generator During a Storm

1. Don’t Get Stuck in the Dark

A backup generator, especially a standby generator that automatically kicks in during power failures, will ensure your home stays well-lit. Without having to rely on flashlights or candles, your family will be able to go about their business without getting stuck in the dark.

2. Remain Comfortable

Without adequate power, you won’t be able to use heating or air conditioning, which can be devastating if temperatures are extreme. If the power goes out this winter, for example, a generator will allow you to stay warm until regular power is restored.

3. Food Won’t Spoil

If a power outage lasts more than a few days, refrigerated food can easily spoil. But with a backup generator in place, your food will last longer, and you won’t have to rely on dry goods or eating out.

4. Maintain Communications

Storm damage restoration experts will agree that it’s vital to have radio contact — and even better to have internet and television access, too. This will allow you to stay apprised of weather updates and to reach out for help in case of emergency.

5. Control Flooding

Having a backup generator is especially helpful for preventing your basement from flooding. If you have a sump pump, devise a plan for how it can continue working, even during a power outage. This will save you a lot on emergency water damage repair costs.

Electrical Fire Prevention!

10/24/2018 (Permalink)

Modern electronics have revolutionized our way of life and most Americans use a whole slew of electronics each day that need charging. Without a doubt, electronics have improved the lives of millions, however home electrical fires are responsible for over 50,000 fires and $1.3 billion in fire damage losses in any given year. Thankfully, companies like SERVPRO of NW Monroe County specialize in tasks regarding fire damages and offer 24/7 services to mitigate losses.

In addition to their fire damage services, SERVPRO of NW Monroe County would like to offer electrical safety advice to all. First and foremost, for the little ones like children and pets, it is important to cover unused outlets to avoid any accidents. Similarly, keeping cords neat and tidy not only reduce clutter, but reduce the risk of a fire and fire damages. Appliances that generate heat should never have objects draped on them and should be given several inches of space for proper air circulation to avoid a fire and fire damages. A bit redundant, but electronics should never be used with wet hands for personal safety. Perhaps the most underrated advice is to unplug objects like phone cords and laptop chargers after using them. This greatly reduces heat buildup and the risk of starting a home fire and creating fire damages.

Following proper electrical safety guidelines exponentially reduces the risk of an electrical home fire and fire damages. While risks can be minimized, they cannot be eliminated and that is why companies like SERVPRO of NW Monroe County are dedicated to providing fire damage services amongst other specialties.
