Save Your Data From Water Damage With The Assistance of SERVPRO!

In the digital age, your personal data is more important than ever, however, it is also extremely fragile. Water damage can corrupt the data stored on your precious electronics and electronic media. Your paper files, too, are at risk of being completely destroyed by water. Books and documents can be rendered unreadable if left in water for too long. If you have electronics and documents at risk of being lost, then call the professionals at SERVPRO to get on the path to data preservation.

Whether it is paper, electronics, or electronic media, we are experienced in a variety of techniques for saving your property. However, not all types of media were created equal, and some are more difficult than others to save. Paper documents and books are often the most difficult type of media to preserve in the case of water damage. They must be completely frozen and dried through sublimation, where the water affecting the paper is turned from ice into gas.

It should be noted that non-SERVPRO specialty electronics cleaning/repairs services will likely be needed in addition to the services SERVPRO can provide.

We know that your data is important. If your personal data is at risk of being ruined by water damage, then call SERVPRO of Friendswood/Pearland at (281) 412-6211.

Cleanup After Sewage Backup in Your Home

Your home can get threatened very quickly and with little warning. Hazardous conditions like sewage backing up into the house can present an immediate health risk to the occupants of the house but also require urgent attention to keep the situation from getting worse. Our team has the experience and availability to provide fast responses to emergencies like these with the training in biohazard cleanup to make a difference quickly.

Sewage backup cleanup for your home is critical as the situation continues to get worse without the appropriate intervention of trained professionals like ours with the tools to assess the situation and clean up the mess. As a homeowner, your concerns are the cleanliness of the affected surfaces and materials after an incident like this, but our SERVPRO team has advanced technology, equipment, and training to thoroughly clean, disinfect, deodorize, and restore affected areas of the property.

There are often contaminants, bacteria, and other hazards present in raw sewage backing up into your home. Whether from a septic tank or a city sewer line, pathogens are always present in this black water. Our technicians have unique training in biohazard cleanup to utilize the appropriate personal protective equipment and use the right tools to clean up the area quickly. Affected materials exposed to the contaminated water must often get removed and later replaced with new materials. The framework of the affected areas must get thoroughly dried to ensure that no moisture persists. With present bacteria likely in the lingering moisture, mold growth or potential health effects could result from inadequately dried materials.

Our SERVPRO team has deodorization equipment like our thermal foggers to help remove the nasty odor left behind by the sewage backup. While many of the exposed soft materials have gotten removed from the area, those that remain can also get deodorized with the use of this thermal fogging equipment.

Sewage is nothing that a homeowner should attempt to remove or handle on their own. Give our experienced SERVPRO biohazard team a call right away to help you resolve this emergency at (281) 412-6211.

Cell phone Be mindful of how and when you use your device and take the proper steps to disinfect germs from your phone at least a couple times a week.

For many of us, cell phones are like extensions of our own hands. From texting to talking, and surfing to shopping, our devices allow us to do almost anything from pretty much anywhere. And since that has become the norm, our phones have become really dirty. The good news is that it’s simple to disinfect germs from your device. So, the next time you check your email at the dinner table or pass it to your kids to keep them entertained for a few minutes, think about the last time you cleaned your phone. It could make a big difference.

What to do Before, During, and After a Power Outage

6/30/2021 (Permalink)

Candle Stay safe this season by following these tips to know what to do before, during, and after a power outage!

We’re more vulnerable to power outages this time of year because of new growth and leaves that are still on the trees, which can pull branches down. Ready, a national public service advertising campaign, gives us these tips to follow before, during, and after a power outage.

Before

  • Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit, including a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
  • Make sure you have alternate charging methods for your phone or any device that requires power.
  • Charge cell phones and any battery powered devices
  • Know where the manual release lever of your electric garage door opener is located and how to operate it.
  • Purchase ice or freeze water-filled plastic containers to help keep food cold during a temporary power outage.
  • Keep your car’s gas tank full. Gas stations rely on electricity to power their pumps,. If you use your car to re-charge devices, do NOT keep the car running in a garage, partially enclosed space, or close to a home, this can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Learn about the emergency plans that have been established in your area by visiting your state’s or local website so you can locate the closest cooling and warming shelters.
  • If you rely on anything that is battery-operated or power dependent like a medical device, determine a back-up plan.
