Why SERVPRO?

SERVPRO of Carbon County strives to provide our customers with the highest quality cleaning services. That's why we've invested in a collection of new Morantz SM-200 Super Mighty One Ultrasonic Wash Machines.

How does it work?

Think bubbles! Cavitation "bubbles" form when sonic energy creates a void (or cavity) that gets trapped as a bubble in a liquid solution. These microscopic bubbles implode with such force that contaminants adhering to surfaces become dislodged. Ultrasonic cleaning machines scrub surfaces clean through implosions of tiny bubbles. This method is handy for delicate, intricate, or difficult to clean items.

What can it clean?

A better question would be- what can't it clean? Ultrasonic cleaning is suitable for various materials, including metals, glass, rubber, ceramics, and some hard plastics. It can remove dust, dirt, oil, pigments, rust, grease, algae, fungus, bacteria, limescale, polishing compounds, flux agents, fingerprints, soot, blood, and more!

Restoring your belongings is now faster, easier, and more effective with ultrasonic deep cleaning technology!

Water Damage

Water damage often occurs in areas that we can’t see – like behind walls, in ceilings and under floors. If left untreated, hidden damage can result in irreversible structural deterioration.

The following may indicate an undetected damage:

  • A musty odor. Musty or earthy damp smells in a home almost always originate from water damage. Where there is moisture, mold is typically also present. Mold spores rapidly overtake porous materials such as wood and drywall within 24 to 48 hours of saturation.
  • Sounds of water when nothing is being used. Listen at night, when the house is quiet, and be sure that you cannot hear any running water or sounds of dripping. One of the most common causes of a dripping sound behind a wall is a leaky pipe.
  • Stains and spotting. Damaged walls and ceilings will eventually show discoloration, stains and spots. Leaky water supply lines, or water leaking in from the roof are the most common culprits of spots and stains on walls and ceilings. If the spots have a fuzzy appearance, or take on a very dark green/black color, it could be visible mold – which means trouble.
  • Gradual changes to walls and flooring. If water is seeping into the subfloor from a saturated foundation or leaking pipes routed through the basement or crawl space, flooring will begin to show changes. Tiles may be loosened, linoleum can begin to peel, and laminate flooring can even warp. Evidence of water damage in the walls appears as peeling or bubbling paint, and cracking in drywall. As drywall absorbs water, it will begin to swell and retract, so any buckling or dimpling should also be noted and checked for water exposure. 

At SERVPRO of Carbon County, have the capability to detect hidden water damage using tools such as thermal imaging cameras and moisture meters. If you suspect a hidden damage in your home, we can help!

Our Steps for Property Damage

2/25/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Carbon County & Pocono Pines wants everyone to understand what consists of a water damage and understand what it takes to get your property back to normal. 

Full restoration consists of two major phases. The first, mitigation, consists of occasional demolition, cleaning and drying out the structure and belongings. This phase usually takes no more than 3 – 4 days.

Causes of water damage include:

  • Bursting or leaking pipes.
  • Issues with the plumbing system.
  • Buildup in areas prone to collecting water, such as crawl spaces, attics and basements.
  • Faulty or malfunctioning household appliances.
  • HVACs (Heating, ventilating and air conditioning units) issues.

If left untreated, water damage can permanently weaken your home's structure or cause you and your family to become ill. Even a little bit of moisture can attract whole colonies of mold or bacteria.

Within 1 to 24 hours – When water damage lasts for 1 to 24 hours, drywall begins to bulge and break, furniture begins to swell and crack, and metal surfaces begin to tarnish. Within 2 hours to 7 days – You will experience growth and spread of mold and mildew.

It is safe to say that a water damage should be taken seriously and not let untreated. If you ever have to experience this, be sure to call SERVPRO! Call us today - 570-732-9191
