You've Had A House Fire - Now What?

7/21/2023 (Permalink)

Bloomfield Fire Soot Cleaning Fire damage is insidious and trying to handle your own fire damage repair in Connecticut will be overwhelming. Call us at 860-216-2785 !!!!!

If you have had a fire in your home, you may be feeling overwhelmed and more stressed than you’ve experienced before. After the fire department has gone, you may find yourself asking “What’s next?” The fire damage may be obvious, as well as the immediate water damage from the firemen’s hoses but the chemical agents and remnants can cause secondary damage well after the fire trucks have driven away.

At SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield we understand the instinct to want to start doing things, to rent a steam cleaner or buy a bottle of cleaning spray and start trying to handle the mess yourself. What you don’t realize is that you may be exacerbating the problem. Cleaners and chemical agents can react with residue and create toxic fumes that could permanently ruin your home, make you very sick, or worse.

So what do you do when you’ve had fire damage? Call us at 860-216-2785 & call your insurance company. Because of our dedication and commitment to making your home look and feel “like it never even happened” SERVPRO Bloomfield/Enfield is listed as a preferred vendor to most insurance companies in the Connecticut area.  Your insurance company will assign you an adjuster and reach out to us, or you can call us directly at 860-216-2785. Our emergency responders can be on site within an hour of your call. They will talk you through the process of what needs to be done, the general scope of work and give you a verbal estimate, all for no cost.

From there we can step in while you catch your breath. Our 24/7 crews are extensively trained in safe and efficient ways to return your home to as normal as possible. Our office staff is well versed in working with insurance companies and adjusters. Our project managers are there to answer your questions and make sure you are on the same page and comfortable with the process.

 SERVPRO Bloomfield/Enfield completely understands that a house fire was not a situation that you expected, wanted, or likely prepared for. From the initial demo until the last little piece of decoration is cleaned of soot, we will be with you every step of the way.  We have the equipment like air scrubbers which can remove the lingering smoke odors from rugs and couches. Our fire cleanup crews will blow your mind with how quick and thorough they are. Just read one of the reviews left by a recent customer :

“SERVPRO never let me down. They did an amazing job with my garage, it was caught up with some fire and the smell from it was horrible. And also everything was drenched from the firefighter’s efforts to put out the fire. SERVPRO crews really took the time to eliminate the odor and dry everything up. Incredible crews. I will definitely recommend your services to everyone I know.”

Keys to Rebuilding After A Commercial Loss

7/21/2023 (Permalink)

Connecticut Rain downtown Bloomfield Storms affect local businesses

When your business or commercial property is damaged by fire, water, or storm, your immediate concern should be temporary protective measures. For example, a damaged roof should be covered  with roof tarps to prevent additional damage. And boarding up windows and doors can secure your business or commercial property until you can remove any water and debris.

After any storm use caution before entering your commercial property. Check for power lines, gas leaks, and structural damage. If any of your electrical equipment is wet, contact an electrician. Prepare loss information  for insurance claims and get independent estimates of the damages. 

Once you protect and secure your business or commercial property, professionals at SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield can begin the restoration process. You may need reconstruction work to get your property back to its preloss condition.

Need Building and Reconstruction Services? Call (860) 216-2785

Three other critical steps business and commercial property owners should take are:

1. Protect Yourself From Contactor Fraud
Only hire licensed contractors to do repairs on your commercial property. Check with your local building department to ensure the contractor is licensed. If you hire a contractor, don’t pull the permits for them. If the contractor makes this request, it may be an indication that the contractor is not properly licensed.

2. Take Photographs Of All Damage
Photographs of the after-storm condition of your commercial property can provide proof of damage for insurance and other purposes. Take the photos immediately after the damage and before repair work begins. Keep all your receipts for insurance purposes.

Don’t wait for a storm to begin preparing. Take a complete set of photographs of your commercial property in its current condition to serve as “before” pictures. If and when a storm strikes your business you can take “after” pictures to show the full extent of the damage.  

3. Assess The Damage And Contact Your Local Building Department
After assessing the damage to your business or commercial property restoration, contact your local building department for information on the required building permits. Permits are always required for any demolition or permanent repairs, reconstruction, roofing, filling, and other types of site development. 

The professionals at SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield can simplify the commercial property restoration process by handling both the initial damage mitigation and rebuilding the affected areas. Having one qualified company for the entire process can save you time and keep your costs low. We offer a full range of restoration services that will get you back in business and bring your building and property back to full use.

A living room is flooded with water Your home's water damage may be small or large, but SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield will respond promptly, clean up thoroughly and work respectfully.

Water damage in your home can be a seemingly endless problem that can drain your time, energy, emotions and—let’s face it—your money. Sometimes the damage is sudden and overwhelming, such as after a hurricane or other strong storm, when parts of your home are overrun by water. Other times, the damage is less overwhelming but still quite serious, such as when a water appliance fails or a pipe bursts. And other times, the damage is more subtle, for instance when a small, unnoticed leak creates a colony of mold.

All these situations need to be treated as a true water emergency and dealt with promptly and professionally. That’s why you should call SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield to restore your home and property back to before-damage condition.

Your Hartland Basement Flooded After a Storm? Do This

7/21/2023 (Permalink)

A flooded basement If you have a flooded basement, here's how to handle it—or call SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield, the experts in flooded basements in Hartland, CT.

Basements can flood and cause water damage any time of the year, but late winter/early spring poses its own risks. Maybe there’s a late-season snow or ice storm. Maybe there’s a protracted deep freeze—winter’s last blast of cold air. Maybe everything warms up fast and there’s an early and intense thaw with flooding. Or maybe there’s rain that falls upon snow and the whole mess seems like it’s trying to get into your Hartland basement!

Unfortunately, February and March are prime time for flooded basements here in Connecticut, thanks to unpredictable weather and sudden storms. Read on for tips on how to cope with water damage in your basement.

(Note that while you can attempt all the repair yourself, if you don’t thoroughly dry out your basement, furniture and other possessions, you stand a strong chance of creating a mold infestation. If you have any doubts about tackling this job, SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield will handle everything, start to finish, no worries.)

What To Do When Your Basement Floods

  • Act fast: The sooner you respond to the water in your basement, the sooner you can stop the flow, start cleaning it up and, if needed, get professional help.
  • Be safe: First, shut off the electricity to the basement. This may require getting an electrician to your home if you can’t reach your electric panel. Wear protective gear, especially boots and gloves. Consider a mask or goggles, too. And be careful walking around, since the wet floor may be slippery.
  • Stop the water flow: If it’s a burst pipe that’s flooding your basement, shut off water to the house at the main valve. And if your basement has a floor drain, make sure it’s not clogged.
  • Get rid of the water: If you have a sump pump, use that. Otherwise, a wet/dry vac or a mop and a bucket will do.

What To Do After the Water’s Gone

  • Dry your stuff: Remove your wet furniture and possessions from the basement to dry. Ideally, you can drag things outside to dry in the sunshine. Everything will need to sit for at least 48 hours to prevent mold from growing, and even then, your items may not be completely dry.
  • Get rid of carpet: Generally, carpeting is a lost cause after a basement flood. You’ll need to rip it up and toss it out and let the flooring dry.
  • Let the basement dry out: Open windows and doors, and run fans and dehumidifiers. This will take several days. Also remove wet or damaged drywall and insulation—that’ll have to be replaced.
  • Wash and sanitize: Once everything’s dry, wash it all, including walls and floor, and use a disinfecting spray or cleaner to discourage mold growth.

If You Need Flooded Basement Cleanup

When you call the flooded basement cleanup experts at SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield, we’ll respond ASAP, stop the water damage in its tracks, evaluate the situation, remove all the moisture from your home, and restore your possessions and structure to before-damage condition.

If you have suffered damage from a storm or other flooding disaster at your home or business, call SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield at 860-216-2785

No Kitchen Fires!

7/21/2023 (Permalink)

A fire-damaged kitchen Kitchen fires happen suddenly and can cause lots of damage to your house. Follow our tips to prevent a kitchen fire in your home.

Most home fires start in the kitchen, and most of those are related to cooking. Since the kitchen has sources of ready fuel, such as cooking oils, gas appliances, towels and more, a kitchen fire can rage out of control quickly and spread to the rest of your home. But if you follow just a few basic guidelines, you can really reduce the odds of a kitchen fire happening to you. Whether you’re cooking or not, follow our tips to prevent a fire from starting in your kitchen.

No Fires When You’re Cooking

Stay put.

The most important thing to do when you are cooking is to never leave your cooktop or range unattended. If cooking in the oven, be sure to be within earshot (to hear a timer go off, for instance) and no further than the next room. If cooking on the stovetop, do not leave the kitchen, period.

Keep it clean.

A fire needs fuel to burn, so keep your stovetop and cooking area free of combustibles. This means towels, oven mitts, paper towels, food wrappers and other items should not be near the stove. It also means that spattered grease should be cleaned up promptly, both on the stovetop and in the oven.

Dress for success.

When cooking, your clothes should be close-fitting to prevent them from touching a flame and catching fire. In particular, if your sleeves are long or loose, roll them up.

Cool it down.

Don’t toss hot grease into your kitchen trash. Let it cool down first, perhaps in an empty can, before disposing of it.

Keep it empty.

Don’t store food inside your oven—if you forget about it and preheat, you may start a fire.

No Fires When You’re Not Cooking

Don’t be plug ugly.

The key to a safe kitchen when you’re not cooking is to use electricity safely. That means all appliances should be plugged directly into a wall outlet, never an extension cord. And that outlet must be properly grounded and must match the appliance’s rating plate. Further, it’s a smart idea to unplug small appliances, like your toaster, when you’re not using them. Finally, check your cords to be sure they are all undamaged and replace any that are frayed or cracked.

Ovens are for eating, not heating.

Never use a gas oven to heat your home. You risk both a fire and carbon monoxide poisoning.

When you have suffered a fire or other disaster at your home or business, call SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield at 860-216-2785

We're Here for You

The team at SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield has specialized training and experience in fire restoration and cleanup, as well as natural disaster and storm damage cleanup, water damage and mold remediation, water and mold damage, and chemical and biohazard cleanup.

Where There's Fire There's Smoke...Odor

5/10/2023 (Permalink)

Bloomfield Enfield Smoke Fire Damage Services Smoke damage can be insidious and difficult to treat alone.

Removing Smoke Odor From Clothing, Furniture, and Carpets

After a fire you’re eager to clean your home, but be careful. You may waste effort or even make things worse if you don’t use proper methods. Begin by contacting your insurance agent immediately after a fire. Then consult with a fire restoration expert like SERVPRO Bloomfield/Enfield. For dealing with the smell of smoke in clothing, upholstered furniture, carpets, and drapes, here are some tips.

Need Smoke Or Soot Removal Services?

Call (860) 216-2785
After a home fire, several factors can influence the severity of the odor:
• Size of the fire: The larger the fire, the more materials have been burned, and the more smoke you’ll have.
• Length of exposure: The longer an area is exposed to smoke, the more deeply embedded the smoke odor can be in all porous materials.
• Size of the room affected: The smaller the room, the more intense and concentrated the smoke odor can become.
• The material burned: Different materials leave behind different odors. A wood fire smells differently than a fire that burns mostly plastic materials, for example. The type of materials affected may influence the type of products you need to remove the smoke odor.

Deodorize Before You Clean
Before you have anything cleaned, properly deodorize the affected items. We recommend you use professionals. A dry cleaner or professional fire restorer will tell you about counteractants. Counteractants are chemicals or additives that break up smoke molecules and eliminate the smoke odor. You need different counteractants depending on the material burned in the fire. Counteractants may be professionally applied to furniture, carpets, and drapes. Fire restorers also may provide them for laundering clothes.

Some professional fire restorers and dry cleaners use an ozone treatment to remove smoke odors. If they do the work in your home, they’ll put your smoke odor affected items under a tent while an ozone generator runs.

Household Remedies Only Provide Temporary Relief
Yes, you may think about using a household deodorizing spray or disinfectant but they provide only temporary relief from smoke odor. And, deodorizing sprays may interact with smoke odor and create an additional odor.

If it’s impossible for you to have your smoke odor infested items restored by a professional fire restorer, you might try one of these methods:

1. Dissolve one cup of dishwashing detergent—the type used in an
automatic dishwasher—in one gallon of warm water. Completely submerge the items and let them soak all night in your washing machine or bathtub. Drain and launder as usual the next day.

2. For items that can be bleached, mix 4 to 6 tablespoons trisodium phosphate (available from your hardware store) with 1 cup Lysol or household chlorine bleach and 1 gallon of water. Add clothes, rinse with clear water, and dry.

We’re here to help. The team at SERVPRO Bloomfield/Enfield has specialized fire restoration training and experience to quickly clean up and restore your home to pre-fire condition. We can remove virtually any pervasive smoke odor and deep-clean soot from upholstery and carpet.

We use a thorough fire damage restoration process:
Step1: Emergency Contact
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof Tarp Service (if needed)
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
Step 6: Cleaning and Repair
Step 7: Restoration

So call SERVPRO Bloomfield/Enfield (860.216.2785) anytime, 24/7.

Connecticut Hurricanes 2023 - Are You Ready?

5/10/2023 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Truck Storm Bloomfield Enfield SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield is ready for any disaster

It’s easy to become complacent when storms and hurricanes haven’t been a recent threat. We tend to focus our weather prep on ice storms, blizzards, bomb cyclones. Still, it’s important that residents of Connecticut remember storms like Irene and Sandy and keep in mind that we are definitely not immune from catastrophic storms or hurricanes. At SERVPRO Bloomfield/Enfield we want to keep you safe and your home protected. If there is a catastrophic event and your home or commercial property in Connecticut sustains storm damage, we are here to help. Remember, we mitigate damage after the storm has passed.

Here are some tips to help mitigate damage of your residential property before the clouds roll in:

  • Do a full inventory of homes and contents – Go room by room with a video camera and taking photos with a digital camera or your cell phone to provide a quick inventory of collectibles, works of art, antiques and other irreplaceable items. Upload your photos to the cloud or email them to yourself so you maintain a virtual copy.
  • Collect insurance policies pertaining to the home. Familiarize yourself with what they do and do not cover. Call your insurance agent for a quick review of your policy.
  • Prepare supplies in case of a power outage or evacuation – stock up on essentials like batteries, bottled water, canned goods, flashlights, etc. Buy a wireless battery pack for your mobile
  • Clear all drains around the house and identify low-lying areas vulnerable to water and ensure that they drain away from basements and foundations.
  • Prepare to move all boats, RVs, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles or anything else that may be parked outside or in a non protected area.
  • Make sure that gutters and downspouts are clear of debris and drain away from the structure.
  • Landscaping should not allow water to collect next to the foundation of the building. Remove any damaged or low-hanging branches.
  • Inspect the seals of windows and doors along the frames to check for cracks and ensure they are not compromised in any way.
  • Look for items that can become projectiles during heavy winds and move them to a protected area or secure them in some manner. Disassemble playscapes or move outdoor toys to a place where they will not be susceptible to being picked up and hurled through the air by the wind.

Commercial properties can also take steps to mitigate the damage before the rain even starts.

  • Back-up all records and store the back-ups off site. Move hard drives to a higher ground where they will not be as susceptible to water damage. If possible, send vital documents to the cloud or another virtual storage service.
  • Have mops, buckets, tarps and a wet/dry vacuum on hand in case of leaks or flooding. Placing tarps over computers and other electronics can minimize damage later.
  • Move paper records into filing cabinets and leave the bottom drawers empty so that if water does flood the office, hopefully paper will be high enough to be protected.
  • Walk through the basement or any offices on a lower level to see what furniture, records or electronics could be compromised or damaged during any flooding, and move them to a higher location or place them in protective containers.
  • Take a video inventory of each office and its contents for insurance purposes.

At SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield, we are ready to help you recover your normal after storm damage. Weather events are getting more hazardous by the season and storm damage has become more of a “when” than an “if”
Our phones are open 24/7 to talk to a live agent. Call us at 860-216-2785 and one of our priority responders will be to your home to get a scope of the damage.

Surviving A Natural Disaster

5/8/2023 (Permalink)

Tree Uprooted If you receive a hurricane warning take shelter right away.

Planning and preparation are key if you are to best handle a blizzard, flood, hurricane, tornado, or other natural disaster. From the Connecticut Guide to Emergency Prepardeness, here are some quick tips to help keep you safe.

Weather forecasters are usually good about letting you know ahead of time if a blizzard is coming. You should avoid driving and make sure to have enough food and supplies with you to last a few days. Plan on not having electricity or phone service. If there is snow, make sure inlets and outlets for your furnace and other appliances are not blocked. You want to avoid ventilation problems and carbon monoxide build-up. Also be sure your car’s tail pipe (exhaust) is clear of snow or ice before starting the car.

To Restore Your Property After A Natural Disaster Call SERVPRO Bloomfield/Enfield at (860) 216-2785.

Flash Flooding
Move quickly to higher ground. Water rushing at you in a flood can easily knock you off your feet. It does not have to be very deep to do so if the current is strong. If you’re in a car and water comes around you, get out and move to higher ground right away. Cars can be swept away in just two feet of moving water.   

Strong winds with thunder and lightning usually indicate a hurricane. The winds may be 75 miles per hour or more. Hurricane season in Connecticut is June 1 through November 30. If you receive a hurricane-warning take shelter right away or evacuate if you’re told to do so. You can learn more about what to do before and after a hurricane at  

A tornado warning means you need to take shelter immediately. If you are in your car, stop. Do not try to outrun the tornado. Get out and lie flat, face down in a low area. Cover your head and wait for the tornado to pass by. If you are home, go to your basement, storm shelter, or a room near the middle of the home. If you are in a tall building go to the middle of the building to a stairwell or hallway. 

After any storm, we’re here to help. We help people recover from natural disasters and other catastrophic events. Call SERVPRO Bloomfield/Enfield (860.216.2785) anytime, 24/7.

Fire Damage? Lower Your Fire Clean Up Costs!

5/8/2023 (Permalink)

Burned Books in Home SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield has the specialized fire and water damage cleanup and restoration training and experience to quickly restore your home.

Fire damage is terrible as it is. Let’s not make things worse by spending more money than necessary to restore your fire damaged home. Many times you can save money and keep property damage to a minimum through what’s called emergency mitigation services.

Saving Fire Damaged Possessions 
Fire damaged property that may look like it needs to be replaced may actually be recoverable. A fire restoration company can save many a heirloom. But act quickly. Prompt fire cleanup and restoration is important because the items found in your home—furniture, carpet, walls, drapes, and even ceilings—can absorb smoke. If too much time elapses between when the fire damage occurs and when fire cleanup occurs, the effects of smoke damage can last for months. 

Time Can Cost You Many Possessions

The more time between the fire and restoration the more costs you incur and the fewer items you can restore. Depending on the extent of the fire damage, you may be able to save clothing, leather, books, photographs, kitchen items, furniture, and more.

Restored To Pre-Loss Condition
SERVPRO Bloomfield/Enfield cleans and deodorizes restorable items, sometimes to preloss condition. So don’t throw anything out until you’re certain it must be replaced. Save your property and save money. Now that’s a win/win!

Call SERVPRO Bloomfield/Enfield to discuss. We’re the fire restoration and clean up company that has saved property and saved money for the owners of fire damaged homes. Whether you're in East Hartford or Tolland; Bloomfield or Manchester; or anywhere in between, we can help.
