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 Buena Park 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.

Water Damage While Homeowners Were Out of Town

Mold Remediation Water Damage While Homeowners Were Out of Town What can happen if water damage goes untreated?... Mold growth...

Homeowners were out of town when this water damage occurred. Unfortunately, due to nobody being in the home, the water damage went untreated for six days. During this time, water saturated the walls, flooring, and cabinets throughout the downstairs area of the home. SERVPRO of Buena Park was called to assess the water damage. Upon arrival, SERVPRO of Buena Park crew noticed there was about 2-3 inches of standing water and microbial growth on the walls. The first thing the crew did was moving contents and furniture to an unaffected area of the home in attempts to salvage them. The next step was to extract the water using a truck mount extractor. Thirdly, the homeowners' items were packed and moved into another area of the home so that cabinets and furniture could be removed. Fourth step was the removal of cabinets, drywall, and floors as they were heavily affected by the water damage. (Notice the microbial growth on the walls) The final step was mold remediation. With the help of a hygienist, the home mold spores in the home were reduced to where it is now safe to live in the home. Just a friendly reminder to have a family member, friend and or neighbor keep an eye on your home when you are out of town just in case this happens in your home!

Water Damage Causes Extensive Mold Growth

8/4/2017 (Permalink)

When water damage is not reported when it needs to be reported, mold is definitely going to grow in the affected areas as it did in the pictures above. The customer left for vacation and when he came back, most of the downstairs area was affected and had mold growth. Please take a second to notice the height that mold reached in just a few days that the water damage was not treated.  SERVPRO of Buena Park will, at this point, set up a plan to mitigate the mold.

Unfortunately, the homeowner was not aware of the water damage happening in his home. When going away for an extended period of time, we suggest the homeowner have someone they trust to check on the home to prevent a mold disaster such as this one.

There are a number of reasons why your Buena Park basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more
