Apartment Fire

10/21/2019 (Permalink)

We recently were called to a multi unit apartment complex in Jonesboro, AR due to a fire. It appears the fire resulted from cooking in one of the units. The fire damage was confined to a few units but the entire complex suffered smoke and/or water damage. We never know the scope of a project until we complete an initial walk through. While the job seemed very large much of this became specialty services being required. Professional asbestos abatement had to be completed due to the age of the structure and the amount of demo that was necessary. By the time all of this was completed there was additional water damage and mold growth. Dry Ice Blasting was another specialty service that had to be completed due to the wide spread damage. SERVPRO of Jonesboro handled all of the smoke cleaning for all salvageable units to include cleaning of walls, ceilings, cabinets, bathrooms and similar items. We also handled the drying of each affected unit that was damaged by water damage. While this was a devastating event for the building owner and the tenants we are thankful they placed their trust in SERVPRO of Jonesboro. While we may not be able to handle every aspect of a job by doing the work, we do have the resources to get the job completed regardless of size. Sometimes the specialty services are just that; specialty and completed by the proper licensed companies for that service. 

Call SERVPRO of Jonesboro for any size disaster; residential, commercial, industrial and allow our team and resources to make your loss Like it never even happened.

Commercial Mold Damage Tips to Remember After Water Damage

2/5/2019 (Permalink)

If your home or commercial building recently flooded due to storm damage or some sort of plumbing issues, you're probably unsure of the next step. Not only are you worried about property damage from the water, but you also have to worry about mold in your home or business. Mold can affect indoor air quality, can cause significant property damage and can cause a foul smell that even the best deodorization techniques can't get rid of! Follow these tips if you're dealing with residential or commercial mold in Jonesboro or North East Arkansas.

SAFETY FIRST

You just never really know what can be floating around in standing water that can hurt you. For example, electrical wiring. You don't want to endure an electrical shock. Once you know you can safely enter, PROTECT YOURSELF by wearing protective clothing, such as gloves and a face mask. 

Stop the Moisture

This is the very first step! Before the mold can be properly addressed, as much moisture as possible needs to be removed. If there is standing water, it can be dangerous to walk into your home or commercial property, so please make sure you can safely enter the building or structure.  

Hire a Professional

The best thing you can do is leave it to the experts. Rely on a team of professionals to help get your home or business back in tip-top shape. Experts can come in and assess the true extent of the damage and help ensure all of the mold is properly remediated. We promise it could save you a lot of time, money and headaches in the future.

How to Handle a Mold Situation

2/5/2019 (Permalink)

When there is water in your business, mold can quickly become an issue. It can cause health issues and damage to your property. SERVPRO of Jonesboro has the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment to handle your mold problem.

Call SERVPRO of Jonesboro
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. One of our employees will ask a series of questions to help determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel needed.

Assessment 
Your property will be carefully inspected for signs of mold using various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view.

Containment
Different containment procedures will be placed to prevent the spread of mold, like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process.

Air Filtration
Specialized filtration equipment captures microscopic mold spores out of the air. SERVPRO of Jonesboro technicians use powerful air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in progress.

Removing 
The process of mold remediation depends on the amount of mold growth and the type of surface it's on. Anti-fungal and antimicrobial treatments will be used to eliminate mold colonies and help prevent new ones from forming. Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and flooring, may be necessary.

Cleaning 
SERVPRO of Jonesboro cleans your furniture, decorative items, curtains, and other restorable items affected by mold. We use a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and sanitize your belongings.

Restoration
Depending on the level of mold damage, some building materials may have to be removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs or major repairs such as reconstruction.

Water Damage to Pocahontas, Arkansas Building

10/3/2018 (Permalink)

Roof Damage Leads to Water Damage

Back in August on a stormy morning we received a call directly from the building owner about the roof being blown off of his building. The most amazing part of this was that the storm actually occurred in the morning hours but by the time we received the call in the afternoon the roof had already been replaced. Our crews responded quickly to begin water extraction and cleanup. Two suites within this building were affected and although the customer had their own general contractor we were able to assist with demolition to affected drywall and cleanup from blown insulation removal in the wall cavities. Drying equipment was placed within the building and we successfully dried the structure. The drying for this loss ranged from three to six days. As areas were fully completed with demo we would place equipment to begin the drying process. It is not common in most cases to wait until all demo is completed to start drying. Our job is to begin removing moisture from the interior environment immediately. It's important to know that many interior walls did not have insulation. These walls were salvaged and dried in place by removing the base trim and ventilating the wall cavity.  We approach every job with salvaging as much as possible. This brings a direct explanation and difference between Repair vs. Replace.
