STEP 4 - Dehumidification & Drying

Once standing water has been removed and water has been extracted from porous building materials like carpets, SERVPRO of Bartow County’s restoration technicians will strategically place drying equipment throughout affected areas. Drying equipment includes air mover, dehumidifiers, desiccate dry machines, floor-mat drying systems, and many other types of professional drying equipment.

SERVPRO of Bartow County Sending Help to Texas

2/25/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Bartow County Pipe Freeze & Storm Restoration SERVPRO of Bartow County is here to help customers that have experience a pipe freeze and are in need of water mitigation and restoration.

Over the past couple of weeks you’ve most likely seen news coverage of the recent winter storm that has affected Texas and several other states throughout the south. In Texas alone there have been over 4 million people that experienced power outages, some of these Texans also experienced water shortages. That’s more people without power and water than when Hurricane Harvey hit the gulf of Texas several years ago. The Texas Department of Insurance is projecting that this winter storm could surpass Harvey’s $19 billion in property damage as well. Approximately 108 counties have been placed under a Federal Disaster Declaration due to extreme cold temperatures, snow/ice, and the loss of everyday utilities. 

Aside from the power outages and lack of potable running water, thousands of Texans are also seeing their homes destroyed from within by freezing water lines, ceilings collapsing from water damage, and floors ruined by standing and sometimes even frozen water. Many Texans left their homes seeking shelter from the cold. Without power to warm their houses many home’s plumbing systems froze and burst. Water from burst pipes could then flow freely until someone was able to close the emergency shutoff valve, causing what could be thousands of dollars of damage to each home. 

Tips on Filing Claims from the Texas Department of Insurance

    • File claims as soon as possible - Insurance companies have been inundated with claims, so customers can expect extended wait times in processing. The earlier you file your claim the sooner your claim can be processed.
    • Document and take pictures - By documenting and taking pictures of damaged property, it will allow your insurance provider to better understand the scope of your claim and will help them in the approval process.
    • Don’t make permanent repairs without speaking with your insurance provider - Waiting to perform permanent repairs allows your insurance company to determine coverage and can prevent costly out of pocket expenses. Most insurance companies encourage their clients to have a reputable restoration company perform emergency services to mitigate damages and prevent additional damage to the insured’s property.

SERVPRO of Bartow County is Here to Help!

While of course SERVPRO of Bartow County is keeping all people affected by this winter storm in our hearts and wish them a speedy recovery...SERVPRO of Bartow County is doing more than sending the people of Texas well wishes. We are sending help. Boots on the ground to help our fellow man recover after mother nature threw us a curveball and put so many in such a perilous situation. SERVPRO of Bartow County is prepared to do our part to restore order and peace of mind for as many people that were affected by this winter storm as we can.

SERVPRO of Bartow County has sent two project managers and five storm restoration technicians to McKinney, TX to help local home and business owners recover after the winter storm that has crippled Texas. McKinney, TX is over 500 miles away from our Cartersville based facility which is approximately a fifteen hour drive. Our team of disaster recovery specialists drove six service vehicles and a trailer filled with over 300 air movers, 50 dehumidifiers, and all the supplies needed to help as many Texans as we can and to restore order due to this once in a lifetime winter weather event.

SERVPRO of Bartow County crews plan to mitigate and service between 12 and 15 properties each day, as part of SERVPRO Inc.’s Disaster Recovery Team. By working with our corporate office, SERVPRO of Bartow County and all other franchises contributing to this coordinated effort, are able to better help more Texans in their time of need. If you live in McKinney, TX and are in need of water mitigation and restoration services help is on the way!

SERVPRO of Bartow County’s Advanced Documentation System

2/23/2021 (Permalink)

technician using Matterport PRO2 Camera System SERVPRO of Bartow County is here to help home & business owners restore their property to preloss condition 24/7!

SERVPRO of Bartow County has been a pillar of the restoration industry in the Bartow County area for almost a decade. We have set a high bar for customer service and cater to insurance claims and helping our local insurance agents address their customer’s fire, water, and mold restoration needs. Our highly trained restoration technicians are IICRC certified and have the experience and know-how to make any restoration project run smoothly, efficiently, quickly, and safely. Call SERVPRO of Bartow County if your Cartersville, Acworth, or Adairsville home is in need of water, fire or mold restoration services.

At SERVPRO of Bartow County we eat, sleep, and breathe restoration. We are always paying attention to innovations and trends in the mitigation and restoration field. When performing restoration services for insurance claims, one of the most important parts of the job is documenting the claim for insurance adjuster and agents. One piece of technology we have taken note of is the Matterport PRO2 Camera. The Matterport camera system allows the user to take 360° photos and create an exact 3D model of the area photographed. This means that the adjusters and agents can be texted a link that contains a virtual tour of their clients property, and inspect the property as if they were actually on-site.

Check out one of our 3D Tours of a Cartersville fire claim here!

The Matterport PRO2 Camera contains an array of nine different camera sensors that are used to create a 360° picture. The camera sits on a tripod where it rotates in 360° while taking 134 megapixel pictures of the surrounding room. Using Matterport’s proprietary image software, multiple images taken from different locations within the room can be digitally stitched together to create a 4K 3D tour of the room(s).

Along with creating a 360° 3D tour of the property, the Matterport system can also create a sketch or floorplan of the property. Using infrared imaging while scanning a given room, the camera takes measurements in 360°. This allows us to import the Matterport file into Xactimate for a quick and easy claims process. 

What is Xactimate?

Xactimate is a computer software system for estimating construction costs that has become widely used by insurance companies in the past decade. Insurance company adjusters use it to calculate building damage, repair and rebuilding costs. Adjusters use Xactimate to generate loss estimates and claim settlement offers.

With the recent development of COVID-19 and social distancing policies, this camera system can be a literal life saver. By being able to document our customers water, fire, or mold claims in 360°, it gives insurance providers the option for a “contactless inspection” while maintaining their ability to thoroughly inspect the claim. By limiting the number of people that have to visit the customer’s property we limit the amount of physical contact between the customers, their insurance companies, and SERVPRO personnel.

Water Damage Timeline Series of Events

Within Minutes:

  • Left unchecked, water can quickly spread throughout the property saturating and soaking everything it comes in contact with.
  • Water can be absorbed by building materials like drywall, wood and flooring materials as well as the contents of your home or business like furniture and other upholstered items.
  • Carpets can be permanently stained or damaged 
  • The finish on furniture can be damaged and may even bleed, damaging other items.
  • Photographs, books and other paper products will most likely swell and warp when they come in contact with moisture. 

The First 24-Hours:

  • Drywall can begin to break down and swell.
  • Metal surface exposed to moisture will begin to tarnish.
  • Furniture can swell and even crack after exposure to water.
  • Stains can develop from dyes and inks commonly used to paper products and cloth.
  • Unpleasant moldy or musty odors can start to develop in less than 24-hours.

48-Hours to One Week:

  • Leaving water damaged property unmitigated and untreated for over 48-hours can result in serious biohazard contamination.
  • Mold and Mildew can grow and spread throughout the affected areas.
  • Metallic materials and items can begin to corrode and even rust with prolonged exposure to moisture.
  • Furniture can swell/warp and mold can start to grow on the surface of and within upholstered furniture.
  • Paint can blister and begin to peel from painted surfaces
  • Doors, windows, and studs can start to warp and swell.

*If a water damaged property is not properly mitigated and dried after one week restoration time and cost increases dramatically and can require replacement of contaminated materials and the rebuilding of the structure can be extensive. Structural safety can be compromised, mold growth and biohazardous contamination can pose serious risks to the occupants.

Rental properties are a great way to collect passive income. That’s why more and more Bartow County property owners are turning their residential and commercial properties into rental spaces.

  1. Giving customers our direct phone number saves time and gets us on site faster, potentially reducing the size of the loss and creates a better customer experience.
    • Instead of routing the customer to the insurance office’s 800 number, where the customer will then be directed to SERVPRO 800, and then finally the customer is connected with our office. We can directly communicate with the customer and dispatch service technician more quickly.
    • This saves anywhere from several minutes to hours of time, and helps reduce frustration on the customers' part by allowing them to explain their issue one time instead of having to explain their claim to several different parties.
  2. We are preferred vendors (or have preferred pricing) for most major insurance providers.
    • This means that SERVPRO corporate and the insurance company’s corporate office have pre-negotiated discounted pricing on services and fees like emergency service calls or after hours services calls. Reducing costs on claims which affects the agent’s bottom line. 
    • We will adhere to agreed upon standards and procedures when completing work. This ensures that the customers property is properly taken care of and is pleased with our services, which greatly helps the agent’s customer retention rate.
    • Our billing practices adhere to industry standards and we also use Xactimate to create estimates to insure fair pricing and services.
  3. Our office staff and technicians are well trained and certified by the IICRC.

    • Our office staff is well trained and well versed in the restoration industry. They can help customers cope with the shock that comes along a loss and give them solid advice and directions on what to do when disasters happen.
    • Our technicians are well trained and participate in ongoing training programs set forth by SERVPRO’s corporate training program and hold certifications from the IICRC. Technicians only perform services that have been authorized by the adjuster or specifically signed off on by the client (who will accept full responsibility for additional services).
  4. We are a one-stop-shop when it comes to restoration services.

    • We are a one-stop-shop that offers a turn-key solution for your customers mitigation and restoration needs. From mitigation to drying and then construction services, we offer your customers the convenience of working with one company. Instead of having to find, vet, and hire multiple contractors and save them the expense and markup that hiring a general contractor includes.
  5. We stand behind our work.
    • The restoration industry is an unpredictable business and sometimes things go awry, the important thing is that we stand behind our work and will make things right for your customers when the unexpected happens.

Using a Portable Fire Extinguisher

A portable fire extinguisher can be a life and property saving tool when used correctly. In order to operate a fire extinguisher, the NFPA suggests remembering the word PASS.

  • Pull the pin. Hold the nozzle pointing away from you and release the locking mechanism.
  • Aim low. Point the fire extinguisher at the base of the fire.
  • Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.
  • Sweep the nozzle from side-to-side

Read the instructions on the fire extinguisher and become familiar with them before a fire breaks out. Encourage your family members and co-workers to do the same. Remember, Extinguishers do have their limitations! It is also important to ensure you have the correct type of extinguisher for your home or facility. Refer to the next section of this blog to learn more about the different classes of fire extinguishers and the types of fire each are designed to extinguish.

Choosing the Appropriate Class of Fire Extinguisher

  • Class B: Used on fires involving flammable liquids, such as grease, gasoline, and oil
  • Class C: Designed for fires involving appliances, tools, or other equipment electronically energized or plugged in.
  • Class D: For use on flammable metals; often specific for the type of metal in question. These are typically found in factories and commercial applications.
