Finding your way back from a traumatic event like this is going to take some time, but with the right professional restoration company, you can have your home back much more quickly.

Our experienced SERVPRO team can thoroughly look over all of the affected areas and develop a step-by-step restoration plan that caters to the damage that is most problematic to living in the house.
 
We can appreciate the situation that you are in and have the tools and expertise to handle any sized disaster that you may be facing. Our initial assessment can give our professionals a place to begin, based exclusively on the issues that pose more serious threats over time. For example, water damage is a common effect of fire extinguishing, but if left sitting too long could result in mold damage to your home.
 
Structural concerns also get assessed. Our SERVPRO restoration specialists can determine if specific areas require minor repairs, or if the damage is too excessive and requires reconstruction. While our technicians have much experience with minor repairs of this nature, we are not residential construction contractors. We can prepare the damaged area for this process, however, using controlled demolition techniques and equipment to isolate the area needing replacement exclusively and preparing it for a contractor to begin their work.
 
We dedicate our work to bringing your home back to preloss conditions as quickly as we can. A large part of this process involves communication with you to determine which lingering effects from the recent fire impact your family the most and cause the most trouble living comfortably.

Water Damage Malfunctioning Appliances Can Cause Water Damage To Your Conway Home SERVPRO Tip--Maintain Your Conway Home Appliances to Prevent Water Damage

SERVPRO Mitigates Damage Caused by Water Leaks

While there are many things that you might be able to control in your Conway home, there are several unpredictable elements that are sure to keep you on your toes. Having appliances is a convenience that most residents in the area are sure to include in their homes. When these machines decide to break down or malfunction, the resulting damage can be very overwhelming and far out of the skill set of the homeowners.
 
Water damage to your Conway home often happens without any warning, so you should always be prepared for the possibility by knowing a reliable restoration company that you can call. Our SERVPRO IICRC certified restoration specialists have the tools and experience to handle most any degree of damage that your home might endure from the unexpected water.
 
From the moment that we arrive at your home, our primary concern is to find and remove the source of the water damage to prevent the problem from persisting. If you have not already located and disrupted the flow of water through the malfunctioning appliance, the volume on the floor could be substantial leading to on-going degradation of possessions and building materials.
 
Extraction and drying are primary components of the complete restoration process for your home. Extracting the water typically involves our wet vacs and portable pumps, provided that the volume of water does not warrant the use of truck-mounted pumps. Drying often gets accomplished through the use of our air movers and dehumidifiers.
 
Structural damage assessment occurs once the water gets dried completely. The process is thorough and includes the use of state-of-the-art thermal imagery to ensure that no lingering water persists inside the walls out of the line of our SERVPRO technicians' sight. Low-scale structural repairs like drywall replacement can get accomplished by our professional specialists during this restoration process, while more extensive and more significant damages can be readied for a contractor by our team.
 
While you cannot predict when an appliance is going to malfunction and cause water damage to your home, you can get prepared with whom you intend to call during an emergency like this. Our SERVPRO of Conway / Holden Heights emergency response team is available 24/7 at (407) 985-3200.

For anyone that has lived in the times where you did not have air conditioning or central heating for your Conway home, you can appreciate the convenience even more. Even with all of the advancements in the way that these appliances run and operate when you are using them to their fullest abilities, there are some precautions and potential risks that you are taking that you might not know.

There are many instances that you do not even see this mold damage with your own eyes, but yet your nose can pick up the scent of must typical of a growing colony. The root of this problem is two-fold, from not having your duct system adequately maintained and cleaned over years of use and also the result of condensation on the metal combined with enough organic material in the network of ducts to allow mold colonies to grow.

With it being common knowledge now that mold can cause health effects to those exposed to it, it indeed is not something that you want to allow to circulate throughout your home freely. Our SERVPRO professionals become certified in mold remediation to the high standards of the IICRC. We have gotten trained in all types of mold and fungal growth, as well as the best (and safest) means of removal.

The first step is stopping the circulation of the air and working quickly to locate the colonies that are growing within the duct system. Once located, our SERVPRO technicians find the best way to reach this affected area, whether that is through the removal of sections to gain access or through concentrated vacuuming. Since your nose found the problem in the first place, this odor needs to be dealt with as well. Typically, a fogger would get used for this process. This dense chemical compound overtakes and neutralizes the musty smell, leaving no scent behind at all.
