A proper fire damage restoration service is often a multi-step process and is best left to experienced professionals like SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim/ Bellmawr.

When smoke gets into your ducts and vents, the tiny smoke particles tend to find their way into your HVAC system may linger there for months, undetected. Breathing these particles in is a health detriment and can lead to irritation in your lungs and possible scarring of the alveoli.

The Principal of Cleaning a Fire Loss in New Jersey

7/10/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim’s goal when restoring smoke-damaged materials is to restore them to pre loss conditions. SERVPRO does that by accomplishing these tasks

    • Locate smoke residues by carefully inspecting the affected area. The inspection will start near the source of the fire and trace how far smoke moved through the structure
  • Identify the type of residues. Different types of smoke residues can exist in the same loss environment.
  • Identify the type of surface. The type of surface determines which cleaning methods and products are safe to use on that surface. Restorers must be careful to preserve the material or surface being cleaned, and some materials may be unrestorable because they cannot withstand the cleaning process.
  • Capture and remove residues. Smoke residues bond with surfaces they contact. The restorer uses dry and wet cleaning processes to release and carry residue particles away from the affected surface.
  • Dispose of residues. The Restorer properly disposes of debris and cleaning waste.

Washing Machine failures in Bellmawr, NJ

7/10/2017 (Permalink)

When your washing machine hose breaks make sure you call the experts at SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr with their highly trained staff who are experts at water removal from washing machines. Washing machine failures can cost homeowners more than $5,000 in insurance claims.

Make sure to always inspect your washing machine you can do that by checking the hoses for any  tearing and if you have rubber hoses make sure to run out to a hardware store and pick up stainless steel braided hoses they will not break as easy as a rubber one would. Most breaks on a washing machine occur in one specific area: couplings. In a process called "razoring," the pressure of the water flowing over the couplings gradually cause an unrolling. This causes the coupling to bend, creating a ragged edge that eventually cuts open the hose at the connection point.

Flooding and water emergencies don’t wait for regular business hours and neither do we. SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim and Bellmawr provides emergency cleaning and restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—including all holidays.
