Document Restoration Process

Damaged Document SERVPRO can restore your valuable documents!

In many instances of water/fire damage or even bacterial contamination, personal belongings and documents can get ruined. Some of our most valuable possessions can be books and pictures. The last thing we’d want is for them to be destroyed. Thankfully SERVPRO has highly trained specialists in document restoration. So there is still hope for your priceless pictures, books and documents!

Document Drying and Restoration Techniques

SERVPRO uses a few different techniques to restore/dry documents.

Vacuum Freeze: This method takes a damaged document and completely freezes it. It is then placed under a vacuum in order to remove water from the documents. This allows the water to go directly from ice to vapor removing any liquid that there might be.

Gamma Irradiation: This process will sterilize documents that were exposed and/or contaminated by bacteria, viruses, or chemicals.

Digitization Services: During this process SERVPRO will help digitize your documents. This helps you save storage space and will prevent them from being damaged or lost. This is usually best for personal or government documents that you cannot lose or ruin.

No matter which technique you prefer, you can be rest assured that SERVPRO has a way to restore your invaluable documents.

What Do Moisture Meters Do?

4/17/2023 (Permalink)

Moisture Meter Moisture meters help detect how much water may be on a surface.

A moisture meter is a tool used by SERVPRO and many other restoration companies to detect moisture in certain materials. 

Most moisture meters are used on wood such as flooring or furniture. However, there are some calibrated to be used on concrete. Typically the scale ranges from 5-40% moisture content when testing on wood and 0-100 when tested on non-wood materials such as concrete. Some meters have an additional scale ranging from 0.2-50% MC used for reading gypsum which typically makes up plaster, blackboard, or drywall. 

There are also usually color indicators that make it a lot easier to detect moisture. Green (dry), yellow (moderate), and red (saturated) coincide with the other scales on the meter to help identify how much moisture is found.

Mold It's best to pay attention to the warning signs of mold.

Mold can be hard to detect and dangerous if left untouched. There are a few signs that there could be mold on your property. 

  • Peeling Wallpaper: bubbling or cracking paint or wallpaper usually means there is moisture in the wall. 
  • Water Spots: Along with the peeling wallpaper, mold can cause brown discolored spots on your walls
  • Musty Odor: You’ll start to smell an old or musty smell in the affected room.
  • Allergies: Sometimes if there is mold in your walls, you will develop symptoms of allergies or a cold such as:
    • Sore throat
    • Coughing and sneezing
    • Skin irritation

Mold grows in damp areas so it's best to pay attention to any abnormalities in your paint or wallpaper. If you discover any of these signs, call SERVPRO to do a free inspection. We will help you come up with the best course of action to get your property back to its original state.

Fire Safety in Commercial Buildings

4/17/2023 (Permalink)

Commercial Fires Practice fire safety in commercial buildings.

It can take just 30 seconds for a manageable fire to become deadly. Although the flames may start out small, they can quickly engulf not just the room but an entire building. Commercial buildings often have multiple stories with elevators or stairways. If a building has an elevator, it acts as a chimney during a fire. It brings smoke and flames to other building floors, spreading the fire and causing even more damage. 

Fire safety is extremely important in any building, especially in multi-level structures. Be sure to have safe escape routes and evacuation strategies. Routes that will keep them out of the path of the fire. This means avoiding places that conduct heat and smoke like elevators. Make sure all the employees know the location of fire extinguishers. You can also assign one individual to do routine fire safety checks. For example, making sure the fire extinguishers are filled.

Fire prevention is just as important. After all, it's better to avoid a fire than to put one out. It's important to keep up with building and equipment maintenance. That includes, confirming electrical fuses and outlets are in good condition, arranging rooms without fire hazards, removing flammable materials, etc.

Despite taking even the best fire prevention methods, fires can still occur. SERVPRO can clean up the damage like it never even happened.
