Learn how to Respond to Smoke and Fire Damage

Many homeowners have experienced the devastation that fire can inflict on a home. They know all too well the damage that is caused by catastrophic fire and the aftermath of the fire-fighting efforts. Thousands of gallons of water, ash, smoke and debris can be sent through a home causing wide spread damage and the loss of irreplaceable possessions.   No one expects this to happen to them, but it does happen to hundreds of thousands of homes each year.  If the unthinkable happens, you need professional fire damage restoration services to restore you life to normal.

If we have learned anything over time it is that a disaster can strike when we least expect it, and the effects that linger afterwards can be just as damaging. One problem can lead to a multitude of others in the blink of an eye and it can be so overwhelming that you don't know where to begin to address the problems. Just about everyone can relate to this situation all too well, especially those that have fallen victim to a house fire.

When a fire breaks out in a home, it leaves a path of destruction that is flat out devastating. It will completely consume valuable family heirlooms within seconds, and is capable of devouring an entire structure such as a home in minutes. Even if you can address the fire in a short period of time and manage to put it out before it spreads much, you will still have your hands full of cleanup and restoration work. The fire is only one of several problems that will come from this event. You will have a certain degree of water damage, as a good deal of water would have been necessary to put the fire out. Once the water damage that occurred as a result has been addressed, you will have yet another issue to address that will more than likely be unexpected. That issue will be smoke damage, and it is going to be just as challenging as anything else to rid yourself of that has come from this one tragic event.

Fire and smoke damage can literally seep into just about everything in your house. It can attach itself to your clothes, your furniture, your drapes, your carpet and rugs, and even the walls of your home themselves. The key to ridding yourself of this problem will be to assess the damage quickly and respond with help from a professional in water and fire damage restoration. Your items should be dried out and a deodorizing process should be performed by an expert to remove the smoke odors from all of your items that have been effected by the smoke. Fabrics and other textiles will contribute to most of the items effected. The ventilation system for your HVAC unit will need to be cleaned out thoroughly, due to smoke being trapped in the duct work and then making it's presence known when the unit comes back on. Even the walls themselves will need to be treated, as smoke can absorb into the porous drywall and even make it's way in between the walls.

It will be a long and exhausting process, but once the team of professionals have removed the last of the smoke damage and related odor, you will be glad that you responded quickly and with the aid of knowledgeable experts to complete the smoke restoration.

FLOOD

Stat Restoration understands the seriousness of water or sewage damage to a home or business and the devastation they can cause. You will need a water restoration service with a proven record for saving your valuable possessions. There are very critical procedures that must be completed quickly or your loss can be much worse than necessary.  

Effects
 
There are few things more devastating than water damage in your home. No matter how the water damage occurs the cleanup needs to start immediately.  A flooded basement or home requires quick and efficient flood water damage restoration.

The first 24 to 48 hours after water damage occurs are vital, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This is the stage in which rapid response should occur to prevent mold from forming. 

It is important when drying framed items such as pictures or paintings with water damage, to not use heaters or dryers. With the glass side facing down, remove the back of the frame and carefully lift the photo or other item from the frame. If the frame and object are stuck together, do not force them apart. Leave the items out to air dry on a clean, flat surface and then remove any pieces that were attached to the frame.

Prevention

There is no way guarantee prevention of water damage in a home or business according to the Institute for Business & Home Safety. However, certain steps can minimize loss. Keep electrical components off floors, weigh down or anchor fuel tanks, and caulk basement cracks to lessen risk. Check for leaks around windows and doors and ensure sump pumps, washers and water heaters are working properly to keep the risk of water damage low.

MOLD

 
Suspicion of hidden mold

You may suspect hidden mold if a building smells moldy, but you cannot see the source, or if you know there has been water damage and residents are reporting health problems. Mold may be hidden in places such as the back side of dry wall, wallpaper, or paneling, the top side of ceiling tiles, the underside of carpets and pads, etc. Other possible locations of hidden mold include areas inside walls around pipes (with leaking or condensing pipes), the surface of walls behind furniture (where condensation forms), inside ductwork, and in roof materials above ceiling tiles (due to roof leaks or insufficient insulation).


Investigating hidden mold problems

Investigating hidden mold problems may be difficult and will require caution when the investigation involves disturbing potential sites of mold growth. For example, removal of wallpaper can lead to a massive release of spores if there is mold growing on the underside of the paper. If you believe that you may have a hidden mold problem, consider hiring an experienced professional for mold damage restoration.


Why is mold growing in my home?

Mold and mildew are naturally occurring micro organisms that exist everywhere in our environment, but when the amount of mold in your home exceeds what is normal, it can affect the health of your family and even the structure itself.

Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees, but indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor air. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.


Can mold cause health problems?

Molds are usually not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions), irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins). Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash (dermatitis). Allergic reactions to mold are common. They can be immediate or delayed. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people. Symptoms other than the allergic and irritant types are not commonly reported as a result of inhaling mold. Research on mold and health effects is ongoing. This brochure provides a brief overview; it does not describe all potential health effects related to mold exposure. For more detailed information consult a health professional. You may also wish to consult your state or local health department.

Black Mold

The most infamous species, S. chartarum (also known as S. atra) and S. chlorohalonata are known as "black mold" or "toxic black mold" in the U.S. and are frequently associated with poor indoor air quality that arises after fungal growth on water-damaged building materials.  Black mold is a greenish-black in color and patches of it often grow quickly over an area.  For black mold removal, you should always contact a damage restoration service.  Allied 24/7 has extensive experience, traing and the proper equipment for mold remediation.  After clean up, fix leaky pipes, add better ventilation to a humid bathroom or install a dehumidifier to a damp basement. Dry out the rooms you find mold in to prevent additional mold from forming.

How do I get rid of mold?

It is impossible to get rid of all mold and mold spores indoors; some mold spores will be found floating through the air and in house dust. The mold spores will not grow if moisture is not present. Indoor mold growth can and should be prevented or controlled by controlling moisture indoors. If there is mold growth in your home, you must clean up the mold and fix the water problem. If you clean up the mold, but don't fix the water problem, then, most likely, the mold problem will come back.  Stat Restoration offers complete mold remediation.

Prevention

  • Fix leaky plumbing and leaks in the building envelope as soon as possible.
  • Watch for condensation and wet spots. Fix source(s) of moisture problem(s) as soon as possible.
  • Prevent moisture due to condensation by increasing surface temperature or reducing the moisture level in air (humidity). To increase surface temperature, insulate or increase air circulation. To reduce the moisture level in air, repair leaks, increase ventilation (if outside air is cold and dry), or dehumidify (if outdoor air is warm and humid).
  • Keep heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) drip pans clean, flowing properly, and unobstructed.
  • Vent moisture-generating appliances, such as dryers, to the outside where possible.
  • Maintain low indoor humidity, below 60% relative humidity (RH), ideally 30-50%, if possible.
  • Perform regular building/HVAC inspections and maintenance as scheduled.
  • Clean and dry wet or damp spots within 48 hours.
  • Don't let foundations stay wet. Provide drainage and slope the ground away from the foundation.

BIO HAZARD 

 Biohazard Definition

Infectious or etiologic (disease causing) agents, potentially infectious materials, certain toxins and other hazardous biological materials, such as blood cleanup, are included in the definition of a biohazard.

Biological agents and materials which are potentially hazardous to humans, animals and/or plants.Biohazardous agents may include but are not limited to: Certain bacteria, bodily fluids, fungi, viruses, rickettsiae, chlamydiae, parasites, recombinant products, allergens, cultured human or animal cells and the potentially infectious agents these cells may contain, viroids, prions and other infectious agents as outlined in laws, regulations, or guidelines.

Clean Up

The most critical job of a biohazard cleanup, bodily fluids cleaning or crime scene cleaning is to create and maintain an area which is both infection and hazard free. Stat Restoration emplyoees undergo extensive training to ensure that all regulations are followed in regards to body fluids, blood born pathogens or any other biohazardous materials. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) sets forth strict requirements for the disposal of all biohazards.

Carpet Cleaning

For beautification, and the removal of stains, dirt, grit, sand, and allergens can be achieved by several methods, both traditional and modern. Clean carpets are recognized by manufacturers as being more visually pleasing, potentially longer-lasting, and probably healthier than poorly maintained carpets. Sanitary Maintenance magazine reports that carpet cleaning is widely misunderstood, and chemical developers have only within recent decades created new carpet-care technologies. Stat Restoration is current on all training and equipment to offer your home the very best in carpet care.

Stain Removal

The longer the stain material remains in the carpet, the higher the chance of permanent color change, even if all the original stain material is removed. Immediately blotting (not rubbing) the stain material as soon as possible will help reduce the chances of permanent color change. Artificial food coloring stains are generally considered permanent stains (Kool-AidGatoradeListerine, soda, etc.). Stat Restoration can safely remove these stains without risk of damage to the fabric. Stain removal products can be combined with anti-allergen treatments to kill house dust mites.

We serve the Missoula, Bitterroot Valley, Flathead Valley and Kalispell, Montana area.  For the best carpet cleaning service in Montana, contact the trusted professionals at Stat Restoration.
