Sump Pump Failure Cleanup

1/11/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Southeast Jefferson County recently got called to a home where the sump pump had failed and the customer had four inches of standing water in his basement. When SERVPRO of arrived on site there was no longer four inches of standing water but there was still a good amount of water throughout the basement. SERVPRO performed the necessary actions to remove the water and moisture from the basement using extraction methods, fans and dehumidifiers. When the dry out was finished our repair division replaced all the damaged drywall. 

In some cases your home owners insurance may not cover sump pump overflows. This is a good reminder to take a look at your home insurance policy to make sure you have coverage for sump pump failure. Sump pump fails are very common and you might want to make sure it is included in your home insurance policy. This slight increase in your monthly insurance cost could save you thousands of dollars in the future.  

Water Damage due to sump pump failure

11/26/2018 (Permalink)

Today SERVPRO of Southeast Jefferson County received a called about a sump pump failure in a customers home. Sump pumps don't last forever, aside from electrical interruptions the sump pump has a life expectancy of only 10 years.

We arrived on site and most of the water had already dried up but the customer was very aware of the risk of mold after standing water has been in your home even if it was a short period of time. After the water was extracted SERVPRO placed several dehumidifiers and air movers in the basement to pull all of the moisture out of the air to prevent any possibility of mold becoming a problem for the customer. Sump pump failures are more common than people think, SERVPRO suggests people perform regular maintenance by regularly pouring a bucket of water in it to make sure it start immediately, making sure the vent hole is clear with no blockages, and making sure all pipes are tightly connected. Another option to make sure the battery isn't a concern is "deep cycle batteries" they are made to use a steady amount of energy over a long period of time so they are less likely to fail as quickly.

Southeast Jefferson County suffered an ice storm and many homes and business had power outages across the city. With power outages comes sump pump failures which can cause flooding throughout the home. SERVPRO of Southeast Jefferson County was dispatched to several dozen homes in the area with inches to feet of standing water in their basement due to power outages. Our certified crews went out to the homes and extracted the standing water, pulled out any saturated flooring and baseboards, then set up dehumidifiers and air movers in the areas needed to get rid of the moisture. One way to prevent this sump pump failure issue due to power loss is to invest in a generator at your home.  Don't hesitate to give us a call if you suffer any water damage in your home or business.  We pride ourselves in excellent customer service and hope to make your disaster "Like it never even happened."

It's best to be prepared

One of the most damaging and devastating things you can ever experience as a homeowner is a flood.

There are many causes of household flooding that can include:

  • Heavy rains
  • Sewer back-up
  • Malfunctioning sump-pump
  • Pipe burst

No matter what the cause, you should know what you should do if your house floods. Taking care of the problem earlier will help you to reduce the amount of damage and can make the clean-up and repair easier.  It's best to call a professional when dealing with water damage in your home.  The certified technicians at SERVPRO of Southeast Jefferson County know exactly what steps to follow in order to prevent further damage, and to get your home cleaned up and dried out so you can get back to normal.

The first several days after a disaster are critical to preventing unnecessary secondary damages like mold. SERVPRO suggests the following steps to help minimize additional damage to your home, business and possessions.

  • If the water has entered the structure through the flooding of a creek, stream or river, or if it has filtered through insulation during its intrusion, it is considered black water and could be hazardous to your health. Avoid contact with contaminated items as much as possible.
  • Take the greatest caution while entering your home, and wear sturdy shoes and protective clothing when dealing with flooded areas.
  • Do not attempt to operate any electrical equipment while standing in wet or damp locations.
  • Throw away all foods - even canned goods - that have encountered flood waters.
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and pillow cushions for drying. Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • Place fans at 45-degree angles to walls and move large furniture away from walls to create the best air circulation.
  • If your home has a crawlspace, be aware excess moisture in this area can often foster mold growth.

SERVPRO also recommends having a three-day supply of water for each member of your family - including pets - along with non-perishable food, a battery-powered radio, extra batteries and a flashlight. Citizens should also keep in mind things like necessary medications and insurance documents.

Frozen pipe prevention

11/12/2018 (Permalink)

Winter is not that far away!  Frozen pipes can cause a lot of unwanted water damage in your home if you don't take the necessary steps to protect your pipes from freezing. 

Water expands when frozen, this results in tremendous pressure being put on your plumbing which can result in a pipe bursting and lead to a flood and water damage. Below are a few simple tips you can follow to prevent this from happening to you.

Prevent Frozen Pipes

  • Remove, drain and store outdoor hoses, and close all valves leading to outside water sources.
  • Search for water supply lines in unheated areas, ensure that they are closed.
  • If you cannot close pipes in unheated locations, consider switching to insulated pipes or placing a sleeve over them.
  • Open Kitchen and Bathroom cabinet doors to allow warm air to circulate to the plumbing.
  • In extremely cold situations let the water drip (run very slowly), running water will help prevent your pipes from Freezing. 

Thaw Frozen Pipes 

  • Do not turn the water on full force right away, let a trickle come out for a short period of time.
  • Keep the faucet open when treating frozen pipes.
  • Apply heat to the frozen sections using a heating pad, hair drier or any other safe heat source.
  • Check all pipes to ensure all are clear and not frozen.

In the event of a pipe burst or any water damage the most important thing to do is shut off the water immediately and then contact SERVPRO of Southeast Jefferson County to remove the water and affected contents.

City Sewer system failure

8/23/2018 (Permalink)

Like most metro cities throughout the United States, Louisville, is dealing with an aging sewer system which dates back to pre Civil War times. MSD has addressed that there is an issue and say repairs are needed throughout the city. 

A couple of weeks ago Louisville had moderate rain fall, but nothing that would be a cause for concern.  Unfortunately, a local company in the downtown area had a major water issue due to a sewer line collapse.  A major drain outside the basement of the building was rendered useless and the water had nowhere to go. The drain, located in a recessed courtyard, filled up with water several feet of water until it looked like a small swimming pool. The windows and door were no match for the pressure of this much water and ultimately it breached the building and flooded the conference room.

The property manager was notified by the security company that ran surveillance on the building and he called SERVPRO of Southeast  Jefferson County.  We responded within a couple of hours and started the drying process while removing any wet materials. A few days later the drying was completed the equipment was gone the minor reconstruction was finished.  The conference room was back in use "Like it never even happened." Sometimes things happen that we can’t foresee, and that is why SERVPRO of Southeast Jefferson County is here to help in the event of any disaster.

Water Damage cleaned up by SERVPRO

8/6/2018 (Permalink)

When business owners visualize water damage, they often picture a massive storm wiping out power lines, flooding offices, and shutting down businesses for days at a time. It is true that commercial water damage is often the result of floods and water that stems from weather events and storms. 


However, commercial property owners/renters forget that storms and severe weather aren't the only causes of floods and water damage. Here are some of the typical causes of water damage to commercial buildings. 
 
1. Malfunctioning sprinkler systems 
Some older office and retail buildings still have outdated sprinkler systems that work in conjunction with fire protection systems. While such sprinklers can come in handy during a fire emergency, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty or in need of replacement. This could easily damage inventory and business assets.

2. Damaged appliances and equipment .  This cause of commercial flood damage is more common in restaurants and catering facilities, as well as any business that has appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance fails and sends water across your building, especially during late hours when no one is around, you may come back to work and face a water emergency. 
 
3. Broken pipes and plumbing.  Just like in a residence, if the plumbing system in your workplace fails water damage could be the result. 
 
4. Backed up sewer lines.  This is another cause of commercial water damage that often catches business owners by surprise. Should the sewer line to your building back up or become damaged, realize the potential dangers of contaminated Black Water which can cause health effects and ruin products and office furnishings. 
 
If your business has suffered water damage, SERVPRO of Southeast Jefferson County will get you back up and running again. Call us anytime 24/7 at 502-491-8666 for fast help.

Why pipes freeze!

Water Damage Why pipes freeze! Damage to a home after a pipe burst

If your pipes are exposed to temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit for an extended period of time, the water can freeze and cause extensive damage to your home. This can be avoided!

Frozen pipes can occur for two basic reasons:

  1. Installation of pipes in an unheated space without adequate protection
  2. Insufficient heat in the area of the freeze

What types of pipes are susceptible this situation? Domestic water piping, HVAC heating and cooling piping and sprinkler piping are all vulnerable if left in cold and unprotected conditions as stated above. Plastic and metal pipes can burst when they freeze, and depending on the size of the pipe, even a small crack in a burst pipe can spew hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water in a day.

Why does a pipe burst, anyway? Well, when water freezes, it expands. The ice expansion will exert pressure against the pipe wall but also pressurizes the water trapped between the ice and a closed valve or fixture. As the water continues to freeze and expand inside the pipe, it causes the trapped water to continue to increase in pressure, thus, just as a can of soda will burst in your freezer, so does your water pipe.

Some common locations where pipes will freeze are outdoor hose bibs, swimming pool supply lines, fire sprinkler lines and water supply pipes in unheated interior areas. These areas include basements, crawlspaces, attics, garages, bathroom sink cabinets and kitchen cabinets. Pipes along exterior walls that have little or no insulation, voids in the insulation or improperly installed building wrap are subject to freezing. You might want to check in on that sooner rather than later.

Don’t Let Water & Storm Damage Sink Your Finances: The IICRC Nonprofit Sets the Standards for Cleaning, Inspection, and Restoration Services

8/8/2017 (Permalink)

In a Nutshell: Water damage can strike unexpectedly, causing costly damage to homes and businesses. Many people don’t face water damage in time, nor do they use proper equipment to get rid of the water or the subsequent mold that develops. The best course of action to ensure your family avoids health problems following water damage to your home is turning to an IICRC-certified professional. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) sets global standards and provides 27 certifications for people in the cleaning and restoration business. With a presence in more than 25 countries, the IICRC also provides consumers with educational resources on restoration — so they can repair water-related damage themselves — without breaking the bank, but also doing it the safest way possible. <alink">inShare35

Water damage from flooding and storms can wreak havoc on a family’s home and finances. The average cost of water removal alone is $2,700. Cleanup and restoration add thousands more to the bill, and a foot of flood damage repair can cost nearly $20,000. While the average water damage insurance claim is $7,500, uninsured people are looking at more staggering out-of-pocket costs.

So, people try to cut corners. One of the first mistakes they make is not facing the scope of the problem. When they procrastinate, the water damage can actually worsen, penetrating building materials, and ultimately also driving up the cost of restoration. When people do seek help, they don’t look for certified experts.

Instead, people should reach out to and rely on certified experts right away. The IICRC is an organization dedicated to setting industry standards — and training experts — in inspection, cleaning, and restoration of damaged properties. Its Clean Trust logo has become a symbol of confidence between certified technicians and customers.

Understanding Types of Water Damages

1/17/2017 (Permalink)

Did You Know…Water damages are categorized into three different types based on the SOURCE where the water loss came from?

Common sources of water losses are broken water pipes, defective appliances, natural disasters, and structural failures.

These losses can happen to ANY home or business owner and understanding the different types can help you as a homeowner or business owner.

  • Clean Water = Category One

Clean Water is treated water that does not contain any waste, and has not been used. Examples of clean water damages are broken pipes, overflowing sinks, and defective appliances. This type of damage presents few health risks to humans during removal.

  • Gray Water = Category Two

Gray Water is water that has been used and carries waste products, but does not contain human waste. Examples of Gray water damages are overflowing washing machines, toilet overflow with no solid matter. Generally this type of damage does present the hazard of spreading diseases but could cause sickness if exposed through touching or drinking.

  • Black Water = Category Three

Black Water is unsanitary water. Examples of Black Water are sewage backups, flood water. This type of damage can contain disease-causing organisms as well as possible chemical contaminates.

*The names of water types-clean, gray or black are not based on actual water color, but what it contains*

*Clean water becomes Gray water, and Gray water becomes Black water, the longer water sits*

TIMELY mitigation is KEY in preventing secondary damage to contents and structure. Secondary damage can be mold growth, warped flooring, carpet delimitation, musty odors, etc. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? The faster water is removed the less damage that will occur. This will ultimately save the property owner and insurance company money and prevent costly repairs to the property.

SERVPRO of East Louisville's goal is to RESTORE rather than replace a damaged structure or contents in order to save time and money for our customers.

Wood Floor Dying After A Water Damage In Southeast Jefferson County

Water Damage Wood Floor Dying After A Water Damage In Southeast Jefferson County Hardwood Floor Water Damage Before Drying

Southeast Jefferson County Wood Floor Drying

SERVPRO of Southeast Jefferson County specializes in drying water damaged buildings for over six years now.  In our experience in Louisville water damaged wood flooring is an "it depends" type of evaluation.  Laminate, composite and engineered floors are great but they do not tolerate any significant level of moisture or water damage to their wood. On the other hand solid wood flooring can be restored if handled by the proper specialists.

RESTORING A WOOD FLOOR

  1. Determine of the floor is salvageable.  Solid wood floors that have cupped but are not completely buckled stand the best chance for restoration.
  2. Remove the bulk moisture.  Most of the moisture absorbed by a wood floor is not from the top surface but from the bottom.   Wood will continue to slowly absorb water if there’s a source for it to draw from.  Not removing the bulk water can cause the floor to continue cupping, even after the drying system is in place.
  3. Installing vacuum panels.  Professional water damage vacuum panels are the only way to dry a wood floor. Since the vacuum panels pull air through the flutes of the flooring, it’s more important to cover the highest number of planks as possible.
  4. The faster you can dry the floor, the better off you’ll be.  Time is working against you. Mold is capable of growing on most materials with a relative moisture level of 16% or higher.  A water damaged wood floor can remain above 18% MC for over a month.  The moisture, temperature and dust layer beneath a wet wood floor provides an environment for mold growth.  Leaving wet floors naturally air dry is not worth the potential risk.
  5.  Basic drying principals must be respected with trying to save a cupped wood floor. The air temperature must be high enough to allow evaporation.  This is when you bring in desiccant dehumidification. The finish on a wood floor allows very little moisture to move through it.  You can’t dry a wood floor by simply placing airflow on its surface.  Specialty drying systems are needed to achieve sufficient airflow through the floor to produce superior drying results.
