Air Scrubber & Dehumidifier

Water Damage Air Scrubber & Dehumidifier Air Scrubber & Dehumidifier

Air Scrubber

If you use an air scrubber in a room that has mold damage, for example, the scrubber will remove mold spores and other allergens from the air. It will not, however, remove the humidity in the air. To capture settled spores, professionals often use oscillating fans in the same room as the scrubber, placing them in a strategic manner, so the moving air stirs up spores that settle on surfaces.

Air scrubbers have fans that draw air through a pre-filter and a HEPA filter at rates that vary between 150 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and 900 CFM. The HEPA filter in the scrubber removes particles, not vapor, in the air.

Dehumidifier

A dehumidifier speeds up the natural evaporation process. Dehumidifiers draw in air at rates of up to 400 CFM, but the air doesn’t pass through filters. When air passes over metal fins that are cooled below the room’s dew point temperature, the fins condense moisture out of the air and pump it to a drain that’s inside the dehumidifier or to an external drain or bucket. A commercial dehumidifier may remove up to 300 pints of water per day, depending on the size of the equipment and the amount of moisture in the air.

The water that a dehumidifier removes from the air is in the form of vapor, or gas. The gas forms because water has vapor pressure that evaporates. To promote the formation of a gaseous vapor, professionals often use fans and a dehumidifier, as the moving air diffuses the gas and moves it to the chilled plates. In a room that has mold damage, for instance, a rented dehumidifier will remove excess moisture from the air, but not any particles. When dew point condensation occurs and the chilled plates remove excess water vapor from the air, the dehumidifier reduces the vapor concentration, which allows more water molecules to evaporate.

DURING THE VISIT, THE INSURANCE ADJUSTER WILL:

  • Examine your damaged goods and property.

  • Give you a Proof of Loss form. This document is your official claim for damages. It substantiates the insurance claim and is required before the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) can compensate you for flood damage.

NEXT STEPS:

60 days of the flood.

  • Once insurance received the form, you and your insurance company agree on the amount of damages, then they will issue payment.

Categories of Flood Waters

5/24/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Categories of Flood Waters Categories of Flood Waters

Water causing damage in a building can be assigned to categories depending on its source, and the level of chemical or biological contamination it contains.

Clean water from a sink overflow, broken water or steam line, or rainwater infiltration is referred to as category 1. Water in category 1 represents the lowest health risk to building occupants and clean-up crews. Building materials and furnishings damaged by category 1 water have the best potential for being salvaged.

There is a 24 to 48 hour window of time for the response to damage from water in category 1. After this period of time, the amount of microbial growth begins to lower the water quality to that of category 2.

Category 2 is water in the large range between absolutely clean and absolutely contaminated. This water has a significant degree of contamination due to its source, from microbial growth, or from contamination after the initial release. Sources of category 2 water damage may be storm drain backups, treated cooling water, some surface water, fire suppression systems, and discharges from equipment.

Water in category 2 presents a higher risk of disease or infection to people who come into direct contact with the contaminated area. Because of the additional contaminant in the water, materials damaged by category 2 water are much more difficult to salvage.

Category 3 is highly contaminated water from sewers, some rivers, seawater, and some surface water. This water will likely contain infectious viruses, bacteria, and parasites. It has the likelihood of causing disease or infection from direct or even indirect contact. This water may also contain toxic and allergenic materials.

Background of Water and Mold Damage

5/11/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Background of Water and Mold Damage Background of Water and Mold Damage

In recent years, many insurance policies have instituted limits or caps on the amount that will be paid for mold damage. Often, what constitutes microbial damage is defined poorly, if at all, in the policy. Meanwhile, the funds available for water damage restoration are generally not separately capped, and are available up to policy limits.

Since mold would not have grown unless excessive moisture was present, water damage and mold damage almost always overlap. If mold growth is present, it is by definition because materials were wet/damp for an extended period, either from liquid water or from excessive humidity.

Prepare your home for Winter

Water Damage Prepare your home for Winter Prepare your home for Winter

Although winter comes as no surprise, many of us are not ready for its arrival. If you are prepared for the hazards of winter, you will be more likely to stay safe and healthy when temperatures start to fall.

Some tips to brace your home for a winter storm:

  • Clean out the gutters, disconnect and drain all outside hoses. If possible, shut off outside water valves.
  • Insulate walls and attics, and caulk and weather-strip doors and windows.
  • Repair roof leaks and remove tree branches that could get weighed down with ice or snow and fall on your house – or your neighbor's. (Avoid liability for the latter.)
  • Wrap water pipes in your basement or crawl spaces with insulation sleeves to slow heat transfer.
  • Consider an insulated blanket for your hot water heater.
  • If you have a fireplace, keep the flue closed when you're not using it.
  • Have a contractor check your roof to see if it would sustain the weight of a heavy snowfall.
  • Make sure your furniture isn't blocking your home’s heating vents.
  • During cold spells, keep cabinet doors open to allow warm air to circulate around pipes, particularly those in the kitchen and bathrooms.
  • Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets connected to pipes that run through unheated or unprotected spaces.
  • If your house will be unattended during cold periods, consider draining the water system.
  • Avoid ice dams– where water from melted snow refreezes in the gutters and seeps in under the roof, soaking interior walls. Here’s how:
    • Ventilate your attic.
    • Insulate the attic floor well to minimize the amount of heat rising through the attic from within the house.
    • Consider having a water-repellent membrane installed under your roof covering.

How to Prepare for a Flood?

Water Damage How to Prepare for a Flood? How to Prepare for a Flood?

Floods are among the most frequent and costly natural disasters. Conditions that cause floods include heavy or steady rain for several hours or days that saturates the ground. Flash floods occur suddenly due to rapidly rising water along a stream or low-lying area.

You will likely hear weather forecasters use these terms when floods are predicted in your community:

  • Flood/Flash Flood Watch—Flooding or flash flooding is possible in your area.
  • Flood/Flash Flood Warning—Flooding or flash flooding is already occurring or will occur soon in your area.

Prepare

How to Prepare for a Flood

You’ll be better prepared to withstand a flood if you have the following items available – packed and ready to go in case you need to evacuate your home

  • Water—at least a 3-day supply; one gallon per person per day
  • Food—at least a 3-day supply of non-perishable, easy-to-prepare food
  • Flashlight [Available on the Red Cross Store]
  • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible) [Available on the Red Cross Store]
  • Extra batteries
  • First Aid kit [Available on the Red Cross Store]
  • Medications (7-day supply) and medical items (hearing aids with extra batteries, glasses, contact lenses, syringes, cane)
  • Multi-purpose tool
  • Sanitation and personal hygiene items
  • Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, deed/lease to home, birth certificates, insurance policies)
  • Cell phone with chargers
  •  Family and emergency contact information
  • Extra cash
  • Emergency blanket
  • Map(s) of the area
  • Baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers)
  • Pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl)
  • Tools/supplies for securing your home
  • Extra set of car keys and house keys
  • Extra clothing, hat and sturdy shoes
  • Rain gear
  • Insect repellent and sunscreen
  • Camera for photos of damage

Respond

Responding Appropriately During a Flood

  • Listen to area radio and television stations and a NOAA Weather Radio for possible flood warnings and reports of flooding in progress or other critical information from the National Weather Service (NWS)
  • Be prepared to evacuate at a moment’s notice.
  • When a flood or flash flood warning is issued for your area, head for higher ground and stay there.
  • Stay away from floodwaters. If you come upon a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, stop, turn around and go another way. Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet.
  • If you come upon a flooded road while driving, turn around and go another way. If you are caught on a flooded road and waters are rising rapidly around you, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground. Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.
  • Keep children out of the water. They are curious and often lack judgment about running water or contaminated water.
  • Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize flood danger.
  • Because standard homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover flooding, it’s important to have protection from the floods associated with hurricanes, tropical storms, heavy rains and other conditions that impact the U.S. For more flood safety tips and information on flood insurance, please visit the National Flood Insurance Program Web site at www.FloodSmart.gov.

Flood Recovery Tips

  • Return home only when officials have declared the area safe.
  • Before entering your home, look outside for loose power lines, damaged gas lines, foundation cracks or other damage.
  • Parts of your home may be collapsed or damaged. Approach entrances carefully. See if porch roofs and overhangs have all their supports.
  • Watch out for wild animals, especially poisonous snakes that may have come into your home with the floodwater.
  • If you smell natural or propane gas or hear a hissing noise, leave immediately and call the fire department.
  • If power lines are down outside your home, do not step in puddles or standing water.
  • Keep children and pets away from hazardous sites and floodwater.
  • Materials such as cleaning products, paint, batteries, contaminated fuel and damaged fuel containers are hazardous. Check with local authorities for assistance with disposal to avoid risk.
  • During cleanup, wear protective clothing, including rubber gloves and rubber boots.
  • Make sure your food and water are safe. Discard items that have come in contact with floodwater, including canned goods, water bottles, plastic utensils and baby bottle nipples. When in doubt, throw it out!
  • Contact your local or state public health department to see if your water supply might be contaminated. You may need to boil or treat it before use. Do not use water that could be contaminated to wash dishes, brush teeth, prepare food, wash hands, make ice or make baby formula!

HOW TO SHUT OFF ALL THE WATER DURING FLOODING

2/17/2017 (Permalink)

Water Damage HOW TO SHUT OFF ALL THE WATER DURING FLOODING SERVPRO of Branford - HOW TO SHUT OFF ALL THE WATER DURING FLOODING

This article gives you instructions to:

• Shut off the main valve at the water source
• Shut off water supply valves in all parts of your home
• Check your water valves and pipes for leaks

When pipes burst, plumbing leaks, or appliances cause a flood, cut off the water at its source IMMEDIATELY. Water damage from frozen pipes, ruptured washer hoses, leaking supply lines and dripping water heaters costs billions every year. Avoid major water damage problems in your house by knowing how to shut off your water.

Take a moment right now to locate all of the shutoff valves in your home so you'll be prepared for an emergency..

How to locate the whole-house water shutoff valve -

The most important point to know in a flooding emergency is your home’s main water valve to shut off water at the source.

This valve is located around waist level or lower, on the inside basement wall, closest to your street or well, where the water comes in from outside the home.

Many water meter setups have two valves, one on the street side of the meter and one on the house side. You’ll typically find the main shutoff in the basement near the front of the house.

If you pipe in water from the city, the water meter is always mounted next to the main, and the valve itself will be large, metal and have a very sturdy handle. In a home with metered water, look for the shutoff on either side of the water meter. Your meter could be located in the basement, mounted on an exterior wall, or even out near the street in a concrete "meter pit" where the household feed line meets the utility main.

For a home served by a well, the shutoff will be on the house side of the pressure tank. You should also cut power to the tank so it doesn't detect a phantom pressure loss and burn out trying to compensate.

It could be outside your home attached to an exterior wall or in an underground box with a removable lid.

There are two types of main shutoff valves: the gate valve and the ball valve.

The gate valve is common in older homes and has a round handle that must be turned a number of times to open or close the valve. Gate valves are designed to be fully open or fully closed. Water flowing through a partially open gate valve can wear away the metal and cause the valve to fail over time.

The ball valve is more common in newer construction and has a lever handle that needs to be turned 90 degrees to turn the water on or off. You can immediately tell if it’s open or not: In the closed position, the lever is perpendicular to the pipes; in the open position it’s parallel.

If you’ve never shut off the main water valve before, test it to make sure it turned everything off. Turn on a faucet somewhere in the house and shut off the main water valve. All water flow should stop.

An old gate valve can break, so be gentle when you’re handling it. If the valve is stuck, leave it alone. If it leaks or doesn’t shut off all the way, replace the valve. You’ll need to call your water department (and possibly pay a small fee) to have the water to your house turned off at the curb stop during repairs.

If you have a well, shut off the electrical switch for the well when you leave for an extended period so it won’t pump any water while you’re gone.

Whole-house hot-water shutoff. On your water heater, there should be a valve on the hot-water outlet, which controls all of the hot water to the house. If there isn't one on yours, you or your plumber should install one.

Toilet shutoff. Look for this inline shutoff — typically a ribbed oval handle — under the toilet tank.

Sink shutoffs. These inline shutoffs usually sit just beneath the sink or within the cabinet or vanity. The one on the left is usually for the hot water, the one on the right for cold water. It could be hidden from view for asthetic reasons in your ceiling or floor, but it will still be right near the sink.

Dishwasher shutoff. Look first under the kitchen sink. Often there's a reducer coupling and shutoff valve leading to the dishwasher on the 1/2-inch hot water sink-supply line. Not there? If you have a basement, look between the ceiling joists just below the appliance.

Turning off water to the clothes washer. There should be valves where the house-supply lines meet the washer hoses. Washer hoses are notoriously weak, so always close the valves when leaving home for an extended period.

Sump pump test

Test your sump pump: Dump water down the sump pit to raise the water level, and make sure the pump is ejecting the water properly.

If you need water damage repair after you shut off the water during a flood or flooding emergency, call a qualified water damage restoration contractor and your insurance carrier.
