7/11/2019 (Permalink)

This Madison Wi home experienced smoke, electrical and water damage when lightning struck their home.  When the lightning struck the house, it caused damage to the siding, outside water downspout, electrical and broke a copper water pipe in the basement.  They called SERVPRO of Madison North and East to handle the smoke and water damage.

Since each smoke damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions. When various materials burn, the soot and residue they create differs greatly and requires a specific cleaning procedure.  By using air scrubbers, thermal foggers and deodorization agents our technicians are able to remove airborne contaminants and control the air quality during the restoration and cleanup process.

5/3/2019 (Permalink)

International Firefighters’ Day (IFFD) is a time where the entire world’s population can recognise and honour all the sacrifices that firefighters make for their communities and environment so we are safe. Please remember to thank any current and past firefighters for their contributions.

In honor of International Firefighters Day, here are some helpful suggestions from SERVPRO of Madison North & East on what to do and what not to do after a fire.

What to Do:

    • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets.
    • Keep hands clean so as not to further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.
    • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.
    • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open.
    • Clean and protect chrome with light coating of petroleum jelly or oil.
    • Wash houseplants on both sides of leaves.
    • Change HVAC filter.
    • Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers.

What NOT to do:

    • Don't attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces or shampoo carpet or upholstery without contacting us.
    • Don't attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire, heat or water without consulting an authorized repair service.
    • Don't use any canned or packaged food or beverages that may have been stored near the fire, heat or water.
    • Don't turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet. The wiring may be damaged.
    • Don't send garments to an ordinary dry cleaner. Improper cleaning may set smoke odor.
