Water Damage can happen quickly, and it can happen when you least expect it.  Here are some tips to help you if you are faced with a water emergency at your home or business.

Emergency Water Damage Tips:

  • Shut off the water source if possible or contact a qualified party to stop the water source.
  • Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building when access to the power distribution panel is safe from electrical shock.
  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Move any paintings, art objects, computers, documents, and other sensitive valuables to a dry place.
  • Don’t enter affected areas if electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers, or electrical equipment are exposed to water. Always avoid electrical shock hazards.
  • Don’t use your household vacuum cleaner to remove water; this could cause electrical shock or damage to the vacuum cleaner.
  • Don’t turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet or enter rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water.

READY spelled out in scrabble tiles with blank tiles in the background. Be prepared for a flood or storm before it arrives.

Flooding can happen fast in many environments.  It is important to be prepared for a disaster to strike.

  • Water – 3 day supply for each person
  • 3 day supply of non-perishable food

Tips for Candle Safety in your Home

3/4/2020 (Permalink)

White candle with a flame with a black background. Use caution when using candles in your home.

Candles may be pretty to look at and provide a great fragrance in your home, but they can also be a cause of a house fire.  According to the National Fire Protection Association, 3 out of every 5 candle fires start when things that can burn are placed too close to the candle.  Here are some tips that you should follow for candle safety:

  • Blow out candles before leaving a room or going to bed
  • Keep candles one foot away from anything that can burn
  • Use a sturdy candle holder, that will not tip over easily
  • Put candle holders on a sturdy and unclutter surface
  • Light candles carefully, keep your hair and any loose clothing away from the flame
  • Do not let the candle burn all the way to the bottom; put it out before it gets too close to the container or holder
  • You should not light a candle if oxygen is used in the home
  • During a power outage, use a flashlight or battery-operated lighting instead of a candle

Remember candles are an open flame which means they can easily ignite.  As an alternative, consider using flameless candles.

If you have any additional questions about fire or smoke damage, please feel free to contact SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle at (630) 384-1040.

Hoarding can be a Fire Hazard

3/4/2020 (Permalink)

Stacks of newspapers bundled with a brown rope. Clutter caused by hoarding can be a fire hazard in your home.

Do you have a person in your life who may be a hoarder?  According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).  Hoarding is a condition where a person has persistent difficulty discarding personal possessions.  The large amount of possessions fill the home and prevent the normal use of the space.  Living space becomes cluttered making it unusable as the space was designed.  Hoarding can lead to fire hazards in the home.

Why Hoarding Increases Fire Risks:

  • Cooking is unsafe if flammable items are close to the stove or oven.
  • Heating units may be too close to things that can burn. They might also be placed on unstable surfaces. If a heater tips over into a pile, it can cause a fire.
  • Open flames from smoking materials or candles in a home with excess clutter are very dangerous.
  • Blocked pathways and exits may hinder escape from a fire.

How Hoarding Impacts First Responders:

  • Hoarding puts first responders in harm’s way.
  • Firefighters cannot move swiftly through a home filled with clutter.
  • Responders can be trapped in a home when exits are blocked. They can be injured by objects falling from piles.
  • The weight of the stored items, especially if water is added to put out a fire, can lead to building collapse.
  • Fighting fires is very risky in a hoarding home. It is hard to enter the home to provide medical care. The clutter impedes the search and rescue of people and pets.

SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle has experience with cleaning hoarding homes.  If a family member is struggling and you need assistance, please call our office at (630) 384-1040.  We will be happy to assist you in making your home a safe place.

Two SERVPRO workers unloading a dehumidifier from a SERVPRO van. SERVPRO uses state of the art equipment for your restoration needs.

The past few decades has seen a rapid advancement in the technology and techniques used in the restoration industry.  These advancements allow SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle Professionals to restore a property back to preloss condition quickly, reliably, and more effectively.

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) sets practical standards for restoration and cleaning.  The IICRC S500 Water Damage Guide is a specific set of practical standards that incorporate the field of psychometry, which involves the manipulation of temperature and relative humidity to remove moisture and dry a property quickly and effectively.

Moisture Detection and Measurement Equipment:

Scientific drying principles rely upon specialized equipment to detect, measure, and monitor a property’s moisture levels.  Recent advances, like infrared cameras, can help us detect water through a wall, ceiling, or floor.

  • An infrared camera may be used to identify water location for thorough water removal.
  • Sensitive moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation.

Water Extraction Equipment:

Powerful extraction equipment speeds the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water. 
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal.

Drying Equipment:

Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers are needed to remove the remaining moisture from ceiling, walls, and floors of your home or business.  Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed air movers cause moisture to evaporate at a faster pace.
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air.

Preventing Frozen Pipes

12/11/2019 (Permalink)

Copper water pipe on a red brick wall with frozen icicles hanging down. Avoid frozen water pipes with these tips.

Freezing cold temperatures are reaching the Chicagoland area early this year.  Your home or business may be at risk for frozen pipes which can cause water damage to your property.

Frozen pipes are often those exposed to the cold weather, such as those outside your house, or in cold areas such as basements, attics, garages or kitchen cabinets.  A frozen pipe can burst at the point where the ice blockage inside the pipe is located, but typically the rupture is caused by the backflow pressure between the water source and the blockage.  A burst pipe can cause considerable damage to your property if not addressed quickly. To prevent pipes from freezing, here are a few steps you can take, according to The American Red Cross.

  • Be sure to completely drain water from swimming pool and sprinkler lines.
  • Remove, drain, and store hoses used outdoors.
  • Open kitchen cabinets to let warm air circulate near the plumbing.
  • When the weather is extremely cold, let water drip from faucets; running water is less likely to freeze.
  • Keep your heat set to the same temperature both day and night.

If your home or business has damage caused by winter weather, please call SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle at (630) 384-1040.

White plates with a brown thankful card with silverware on a brown floral place mat. Stay Safe this Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and according to NFPA it is the leading day of the year for home fires involving cooking equipment.

Please take a look at the following tips to stay safe this Thanksgiving:

Safety Tips:

  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  • Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
  • Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
  • Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
  • Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
  • Keep knives out of the reach of children.
  • Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
  • Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
  • Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.

Water in Finished Basement in Wheaton

6/25/2019 (Permalink)

“I have water in my finished basement. What do I do?”

“I have water in my finished basement. What do I do?”

We don’t recommend just using your shop vacuum or mopping the visible water up and calling it a day. There are so many different variables to consider such as:

Where has the water traveled?

  • If your second-floor bathroom experienced water damage, the water can travel through the floor and affect first floor rooms.
  • If your finished basement has water damage, the water can soak up in the drywall and insulation behind the wall.
  • Water dripping in your bedroom could be coming in from the roof and affect insulation and roof in your attic.

All these undetected areas, if not dried properly, can become an environment for microbial growth (MOLD!) and avoiding growth is why you should call an IICRC trained firm to inspect the property to see just where the water has traveled.

You can call SERVPRO of Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Lisle 24/7 at 630-384-1040 to discuss the process of cleaning and drying out your property after water intrusion in your home or business.

6/25/2019 (Permalink)

“When thunder roars, go indoors.”

SERVPRO of Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Lisle can help board up your home or business, clean contents and the structure after smoke, soot, and fire from lightning strikes. The odds of being struck by lightning is 1 in 500,000 and is the leading cause of weather-related fatalities. Here are some tips and facts about lightning from the CDC:

  • Check the forecast before planning outdoor activities. If the weather is calling for outdoor thunderstorms, postpone your trip or activity, or make sure there is adequate shelter available.
  • Avoid windows, doors, porches, and concrete.
  • Do not lie on concrete floors and avoid leaning against concrete walls. Lightning can travel through any metal wires or bars in concrete walls or flooring.
  • Avoid water by not bathing, showering, washing dishes, or any other contact with water during a thunderstorm because lightning can travel through a building’s plumbing.
  • Avoid electronic equipment that is connected to an electrical outlet. Lightning can travel through any metal wires or bars in concrete walls.
  • Make sure to equip homes and businesses with surge protectors to protect appliances and other electronic devices.
  • “When thunder roars, go indoors.” Go indoors or find a safe enclosed shelter when you hear thunder. Some ideas of safe shelters are offices, homes, shopping centers, hard-top vehicles (with the windows rolled up).
  • If you are outdoors and there is not shelter, do not lie down, crotch close to the ground touching the ground as little as possible. If you are in a group, make sure to separate.

Call us for help at 630-384-1040 anytime as we are open 24/7/ 365 days a year after fire damage, lightning strikes, or trees that fall on your home or business.

Mold in the House: SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle provides mold remediation for your home or office

6/19/2018 (Permalink)

When mold is discovered, SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle will provide an assessment, containment and expert mold remediation

Discovering mold in your home or office can be alarming.  If mold is discovered, you can contact SERVPRO for an assessment before taking any action.  First things first, do not attempt to clean, scrub or disturb mold, as the spores will easily distribute into the air.  If you have fans or an open window nearby blowing in the area, turn it off or eliminate any breezes.  Mold spreads easily and by scrubbing it or allowing wind to reach the affected area, the spores will simply move to another area. 

Removing Mold from the House or Office

Calling a mold remediation expert like SERVPRO will allow for a number of actions to take place. The first thing we do is find the source of the mold.  There may be a leak, a water or moisture source that contributed to the mold growth.  Our trained mold technicians will find the source, eliminate further damage, assess the situation, contain the existing problem and remove the mold.  Also, we will professionally clean the affected areas and contents, as well as provide air filtration and provide any restoration, if needed.

What to do with Mold

If you find mold in the house or office, again, here are a few tips on what to do (and what not to do):

  • Do not touch or scrub mold
  • Turn off any fans or blowing air (HVAC)
  • Do not spray any bleach or chemicals on the mold
  • Do not try to dry the area or use any heaters (you will spread spores)
  • Call SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle

Water in the House: SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle helps when you have water trouble in your home or office

6/13/2018 (Permalink)

If you have standing water, flood damage, or other water issues in your home or office, SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle can help.

Water damage is a common occurrence in homes and buildings.  You may experience an event with water from a heavy rain, flooding in the area, a broken sprinkler head, or even from an over-flowing toilet.  Whatever the cause of the water problem, SERVPRO can help.  Water damage is not to be taken lightly, as water can cause damage to flooring, wood trim, drywall and other parts of a structure. When water is standing in a basement, rooms, or even in a bathroom, it seeps into crevices and travels under flooring, trim and baseboards.  If not properly dried, that water can create irreparable damage, even cause mold.  Of course, the amount of water needs to be something beyond a common spill, although even a small, steady leak that is not stopped and dried can create big problems.

When to contact SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle for water damage repairs and drying:

  • Standing water in the basement
  • Flood water has entered the house or building
  • Visible damage to a window, door or walls, with water pooling in areas
  • Roof damage that has allowed wind driven rain to enter the structure
  • Sewer water or other plumbing backup
  • A long-term leak has been discovered

If there is a question of whether water can be damaging your home or building, SERVPRO professionals are trained at identifying and surveying the damage any water may have created.  Most importantly, we can remove the water and clean, dry, and professionally repair water damage.

After a Fire: Cleaning up after smoke and fire damage in Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Lisle Area

6/6/2018 (Permalink)

Damaged by a fire, this smoke and soot covered wall was cleaned by the SERVPRO of Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Lisle team.

When a fire erupted in a residential apartment building in the Wheaton area of Illinois, the local fire department responded immediately, extinguishing the fire. The fire and smoke damage displaced many families, and created a massive clean-up effort for SERVPRO of Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Lisle.

Fire, Smoke and Soot Damage

The fire burned inside 2 units of a large apartment building, creating heavy structural damage. All told, residents from a total of 12 units were impacted and suddenly without a home. The fire and smoke damage was present throughout nearly all of the units adjacent to where the fire took place. There was also water inside several apartments from the fire department’s response, coupled with smoke smell and soot covering the walkways and stairwells, making the entire building uninhabitable for residents. After this fire took place, SERVPRO was called to assist in the immediate cleanup and mitigation from the fire damaged structure. 

Cleaning Smoke and Soot Damage

The fire created structural damage in two units, but heavy smoke damage and soot covered walls, furniture and personal belongings in many of the adjoining units. Outside of the living areas, the signs of fire were found throughout the building.  Smoke and soot damage covered brick walls up and down staircases.  As part of the cleanup, SERVPRO was called in to clean the charred walls and restore the appearance of the building.  Using a combination of commercial cleaning materials and steam cleaning, SERVPRO crews performed a thorough cleaning of all the damaged segments of the brick walls, removing all traces of the smoke and soot damage, making the brick and the fire damage “Like it never even happened.”

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Lisle for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

What to Do for Bio-Hazard Cleanup

9/12/2017 (Permalink)

Bio-hazard and sewage cleanup can involve hidden dangers. It must only be handled by an expert team, with the right training, skills, and equipment to do the job safely. With the assistance of a professional bio-hazard service team from SERVPRO of Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Lisle, you can rest assured that your health and the security of your property is a top priority.

There are several different types of bio-hazardous jobs which can range from crime scene residues, chemical spills, animal waste or carcasses, hoarding, and the most frequent, sewage backups. The main point to remember is that certain chemicals and pathogens can lead to unhealthy and dangerous consequences if left untreated in a home or business. If you suspect that this kind of problem has occurred in or around your property, you need to call in the SERVPRO experts who can quickly assess the situation.

Once the experts carry out a thorough inspection of the site, they can give you a general assessment. You should not attempt to re-enter the property until you have received clearance from an authoritative source.

The reason eradication and elimination are the primary tactics for bio-hazard cleanup are because any materials that have come into contact with raw sewage could present a serious risk to health. Within areas deemed ‘unsafe,’ life-threatening organisms like E. coli, salmonella, tapeworm, HPV (human papilloma virus), chemicals, and even HIV can lurk if blood is present.

If you experience any breakdown involving sewage on a scale larger than a small toilet overflow, you should absolutely contact a bio-hazard removal team right away. In most cases, it is only sewer water that warrants such an immediate reaction, but it is important to be aware that other forms of water damage can become harmful if left untreated.

For example, water from drains and polluted rivers may flood a property and deposit contaminants. This water is not clean; it contains all kinds of bacteria, irritants, and harmful substances and is termed Black Water. This is why you should never wait before you get water damage of any type restored and repaired, even as the contaminated water is quickly removed from the premises.

For businesses, the urgency of bio-hazard cleanup is particularly pressing. You cannot afford to have your workers or clients exposed to contaminated water, pathogenic agents from a crime scene, or meth lab chemicals. Get in touch with an expert bio-hazard cleanup team from SERVPRO right away. We are skilled professionals, wearing Hazmat safety clothing and gear, utilize special equipment for any bio-hazard clean up. Immediate mitigation of health related issues and property preservation are the main, initial focal points. Safety always comes first.

Wheaton Smoke and Soot Cleanup

8/16/2017 (Permalink)

Smoke and Soot Damage Can Cause a Pervasive Odor in Your Wheaton 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 Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Lisle 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 Glen Ellyn Home Have A Mold Problem?

8/16/2017 (Permalink)

In DuPage County, mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

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 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.
