Kitchen Fire in Buda, TX

This was the aftermath of a kitchen fire in Buda TX when we arrived on the scene. There was significant smoke and soot damage. The owner couldn't believe how quickly and completely we were able to clean the soot from the walls and ceiling. Along with cleaning the structure, we also provided the services for the pack-out and cleaning of all the contents in the home before eventually moving everything back to their home. During these phases, we provide a complete inventory of all of the contents and can make reports easily. We make distasters "Like it never even happened!"

Burst Pipe?

Do you have water damage from clean water? 

DO:

1. Shut off the source of water if possible or contact a qualified party to stop the water source. 

2. Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting. 

3. Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting. 

DON'T:

1. Enter rooms with standing water where electrical shock hazards may exist. 

2. Enter affected areas if electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers or electrical equipment are to water. Always avoid electrical shock hazards. 

3. Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet or enter rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water. 

Document Restoration Chamber

Do you know the benefits of document restoration? Here is a photo of our drying chamber. Vacuum freeze drying is the most efficient and effective way to salvage water damaged documents. It is the only method that is approved by NARA (National Archives and Records Administration) and the GSA (General Services Administration). Other methods such as dehumidification can alter the structure of the paper's fibers and cause the papers to become more brittle, and is not recommended by any means. 

Wet documents?

Some helpful tips when working with wet documents:

1. Lay items flat on clean absorbent towels; change absorbent towels regularly until item is just damp. 

2. Do not attempt to separate soaking or very wet sheets; leave in 1/4" thick stacks and separate when just damp. 

SERVPRO of North Central Austin can help with your wet documents or files. One of the services that we provide is:  

Vacuum Freeze Drying - a process in which an item containing moisture is frozen and dried using various vacuums and pressers to achieve sublimation.
