Hail Damage in Cheyenne

7/18/2017 (Permalink)

DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO WHEN HAIL STRIKES?


Cheyenne has experienced a number of major hail storms in the past few years. These storms have caused damage to many cars and buildings. This damage comes in many shapes and sizes, from broken windows, siding damage, to roof damage just to name a few.

What kind of damage can hail cause?


Hail can cause more damage to your home than just to the shingles on your roof and broken windows. When there is roof damage or broken windows from hail, there could possibly be an issue with water damage if the damage is severe enough. In these instances, SERVPRO of Cheyenne is here to help. We can help stop the source of water damage by boarding up and tarping damaged windows, and roofs along with clean up debris from the damage i.e. broken glass. When the source has been stopped, we can also assist with the water damage at hand.

FOR ANY ASSISTANCE WITH DAMAGE FROM HAIL CALL SERVPRO OF CHEYENNE AT 307-514-9011

DO YOU KNOW THE DANGERS THAT HOT SUMMER DAYS CAN BRING?

With hot summer weather comes potential health dangers in the form of heat related illnesses. In this post we will cover the illnesses, how to avoid them, and how to treat or seek treatment if you can’t avoid them.

Heat Related Illnesses

The heat related illnesses we are covering today are heat exhaustion, heat cramps, and heat stroke. All three of these illnesses are a result of your body overheating due to prolonged exposure to high temperatures. High activity levels while exposed to high temperatures can escalate heat related illnesses or cause them to occur more rapidly. Those at the highest risk of heat related illnesses are the elderly, the young, persons taking certain medicines, persons whom are chronically ill, and those who work outdoors during high temperatures.

Signs of Heat Related Illnesses

Signs of heat cramps include but are not limited to; severe cramps in the hands, calves or feet.

Signs of heat exhaustion include but are not limited to; increased feeling of being tired, headaches, nausea, increased feeling of being excessively thirsty, muscle cramps and weakness, and dizziness.

Signs of heat stroke include but are not limited to; headache, dizziness, increased feeling of being tired, increase in heart rate, dizziness, decrease in urination, decrease in sweating, and increase in body temperature.

How to Avoid Heat Related Illnesses

Ways to avoid heat related illnesses include but are not limited to; drinking plenty of fluids, staying out of the sun and finding shade, limiting outdoor activities during the hottest parts of the day (between 10 a.m. and 4p.m.), and wearing light-colored clothing.

How to Treat Heat Related Illnesses

Ways to treat heat related illnesses include but are not limited to; re-hydrating with water or sports drinks, getting into shade or air conditioning, and applying a cool damp towel to the back of your neck. Keep in mind heat exhaustion needs to be treated immediately as it can be severe. Also heat stroke is life threatening and needs to be treated by personnel trained in emergency medical situations.

Cheyenne Smoke and Soot Cleanup

8/18/2016 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

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 Cheyenne 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. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Does Your Cheyenne Home Have A Mold Problem?

8/18/2016 (Permalink)

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
