The Hidden Dangers of Biohazards

The Hidden Dangers of Biohazards

Separately, biohazard situations can lead to hidden dangers that an average property restoration technician might not even consider. For example, in a water damage emergency, floor boards and drywall might be removed because they are visibly warped and unsalvageable.

Safety Tips If You Suspect Mold

Safety Tips If You Suspect Mold

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Manahawkin for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold

Mold Investigation

Mold Investigation

What is mold?

The term “mold” is a colloquial term for a group of filamentous fungi that are common on food or wet materials. This includes the green Penicillium species that produces penicillin, and fungi that spoil our bread, fruit, cheese and crops. Most of these are Ascomycetes that produce a lot of spores.

Do you have mold?

Do you have mold?

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.

Mold Home Investigation

Mold Home Investigation

Mold can produce allergens and irritants and has the potential to cause other health effects. Mold can spread quickly through your Ocean County home or business in as little as 48 hours. If you suspect that your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property. If mold is found, we have the training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Flooding and Water Emergencies

Flooding and Water Emergencies

Flooding and water emergencies don’t wait for regular business hours and neither do we. SERVPRO of Santa Barbara provides emergency cleaning and restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—including all holidays. 

Water Damage?

Water Damage?

Faster To Any Size Disaster

Flooding and water damage is very invasive. Water quickly spreads throughout your home and gets absorbed into floors, walls, furniture, and more. SERVPRO of Manahawkin arrives quickly and starts the water extraction process almost immediately. This immediate response helps to minimize the damage and the cleaning and restoration costs.

Biohazard: Doing It RIght!

Biohazard: Doing It RIght!

A reputable company should be able to deliver a detailed report which catalogs every step of the cleanup process. This should include photos of the entire process as well, so the policy holder and adjuster understand why some structural materials needed to be removed, what was disposed, why the employees went through a certain amount of protective equipment, etc.

Smoke and Soot Cleanup

Smoke and Soot Cleanup

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.

Commercial Fire Damage

Commercial Fire Damage

Fire damage is especially devastating for a business or commercial property. In addition to the fire and smoke damage, significant water damage from firefighting efforts and fire suppression systems may occur.

Commercial Restoration

There's never a convenient time for fire or water damage to strike your business. Every hour spent cleaning up is an hour of lost revenue and productivity. So when an emergency situation arises in your business, give us a call and we'll be there fast with the help you need.

No commercial project is too big, because we have access to the resources of a nationwide network of 1,650 Franchises. 

Sewage Cleanup

Sewage Cleanup

Water from sewer system backups should be considered very dangerous. The water is grossly unsanitary and may contain bacteria and viruses that could cause serious illness. Special training and equipment is necessary to safely clean this type of contamination.

Air Ducts and HVAC Cleaning

Air Ducts and HVAC Cleaning

Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. Make it a priority to inspect the ductwork of your home or business.

If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating one or more of the following:

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Odors
  • Dirt and debris
  • Other contaminants

SERVPRO of Manahawkin Professionals routinely inspect the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC).  Keeping them clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can in turn save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe.

Trauma Biohazard

Trauma Biohazard

After the police have finished processing a crime or accident scene, the cleaning and restoration process can begin. Many times, crime and accident scenes have blood and other biohazard contaminants that pose a serious health risk. SERVPRO of Manahawkin will respond immediately and has the specialized training, protective equipment, and experience to safely clean trauma and crime scenes.

Building and Reconstruction Services

Building and Reconstruction Services

When your home or business has been damaged by fire, water, or storm damage, the immediate concern should be temporary protective measures such as placing roof tarps to prevent additional damage, and boarding up to secure the building and remove water and debris.

Strip and Wax

Strip and Wax

Floor stripping refers to completely removing old wax, soil and debris found on the floor. It is usually one of the most labor intensive and time consuming jobs in the professional cleaning industry. Further, it is common for cleaning professionals - even experienced cleaning professionals - to make mistakes when stripping floors.

Many of these mistakes can be avoided. Because of this, Powr-Flite Floor Care lists the top ten mistakes cleaning workers often make when stripping floors and offers some ways to prevent them.

Damage From Water Should Be Cleaned By Certified Professionals

Damage From Water Should Be Cleaned By Certified Professionals

The amount of damage water can cause is amazing, and often underestimated by homeowners. Excess moisture is bad enough, but when a home is flooded or hit with a plumbing disaster (like a burst pipe), the situation can quickly get out of hand. There’s a reason why these incidents are among the most expensive problems a homeowner can face.

Why Professionals Should Clean Smoke Damage From A Fire

Why Professionals Should Clean Smoke Damage From A Fire

When the firefighters leave, it may seem like the danger has passed and the home is safe from further destruction, but without professionals to help clean the smoke damage, the building will never return to normal. While the principles behind fire restoration are fairly simple, it requires a lot of experience and manpower to perform adequately, and this means that it shouldn’t be attempted by a homeowner on his or her own.

Commercial Storm Damage Restoration

Commercial Storm Damage Restoration

Storms and inclement weather can be devastating to any business. Wind damage, heavy rain, and flooding can occur suddenly and cause substantial damage in a matter of minutes. There’s never a convenient time for flooding or storm damage to strike your business.

Recover After Storm Damage

Recover After Storm Damage

Secure the structure before you leave, if there is no imminent danger forcing you to evacuate immediately. Find a copy of your homeowners insurance and determine if the damage exceeds your deductible. If it does, you will need to file an insurance claim. Repair damage caused by the storm as the final step of your after storm recovery plan.

House on Fire; Fire Damage Restoration

House on Fire; Fire Damage Restoration

Question: Do you know the leading cause of winter fires? It might not be what you think.

Answer: Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly depending on how up-to-speed you are on fire causes), it's cooking. So no matter what the weather's like outside, be careful in the kitchen.

Smoke detectors are required by law in all dwelling units used for sleeping.  They must be mounted on ceilings or top of the walls and centrally located in the corridor or area leading to each sleeping space.  It is recommended that batteries be replaced on a regular basis.  A good time to replace batteries is during fall and spring time changes. 

Fire Damage Do's

Fire Damage Do's

What To Do After A Fire

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets.
  • Keep hands clean so as not to further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.
  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open.
  • Clean and protect chrome with light coating of petroleum jelly or oil.
  • Wash houseplants on both sides of leaves.

Class 1 Water Damage

Class 1 Water Damage

Class 1. The lowest and easiest to deal with, this has a slow evaporation rate. Only part of a room or area was affected, there is little or no wet carpet, and the moisture has only affected materials with a low permeance rate, such as plywood or concrete.

What To Do After Flooding

What To Do After Flooding

What To Do After Flooding

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.

  • Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer.
  • Remove colored rugs from wet carpeting.

“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

“Mold Removal” vs. Mold Remediation

What’s the Difference?

Since microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors, removing all mold from a home or business is impossible. Many restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy. We understand mold and mold growth. SERVPRO of Manahawkin has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business.
