When a disaster strikes, it can leave your mind swirling with thoughts. You may primarily be focused on the welfare of your loved ones, with worries about the shape of your home another largely consuming concern.

As you begin to sort things out, thinking through how to start and handle your insurance claim process may not even be on your to-do list. Even if it isn’t, the faster you can start the entire recovery process, the better.

Our team is here to help you put all the pieces of your life and your recovery back together. We will make managing your insurance claims process simple.

Start Fast, Document Often

When it comes to disaster cleanup, the faster you can move, the better. Every disaster will be different and come with its own unique challenges, but the sooner you can respond, the less damage your property will incur. Make sure you keep safety as your first priority. Stay away from floodwaters, downed power lines and potential hot spots after a fire.

Make sure your loved ones and neighbors are safe, too, so that any emergency needs can be addressed right away. Clear roads if you can safely do so to allow for vehicles to safely pass.

When you feel comfortable that everyone is as safe as possible, call our SERVPRO® office and start your recovery. We will take a lot of information over the phone while we also mobilize a team to your property with the equipment necessary to restore things back to normal fast.

Once our team is headed your way, start assessing the damage done and take as many photos as you can. When it comes to insurance claims, the more documentation you can provide, the smoother you process will be. If there is something you need to fix before our team gets there, make sure to take note of what you did in order to provide that information on the claim later.

Leave It to Our Team

When our team makes it to your property, we will immediately start securing your home in order to prevent further damage and keep the elements out. While we tarp your roof or board up broken windows, we will also look through all of your pictures and other documentation in order to add anything additional you will need for your claims process. Our staff is well-trained in the requirements that insurance companies carry, which means we will take every step possible to make the claims process successful.

While we work through your recovery process, we will create an itemized list of your losses. Because we are certified in insurance inspection standards, all of the work we complete will be to the highest degree. We also make it a goal to restore as much of your property as we can so that you have less to replace. Whatever we can do to keep your cost low and your insurance claims process easy, we are going to do it.

You can put your recovery into the hands of our team and know that everything, including your insurance claim, will be as easy as it can be. We will work hard to get your life put back together so you can get back to normal.

When a disaster strikes, call us to make your recovery process—insurance claims and all—simple.

The Basics of Preparing for Flooding | SERVPRO of Westfield

Going back to the basics is the best way to get something done, especially if you want it done well. This is something you understand well if you have children in school and have ever helped them with math homework. If they don’t know the basics, it can be incredibly frustrating .

Going back to the basics of disaster prevention is the best way to protect your home well from potential natural disasters, too. We don’t have a lot of say in how Mother Nature acts, but when we are prepared for anything she sends us, our damage will be less.

Flooding is one of the most common kinds of natural disasters, which means it is one that we all should be ready to handle.

Know Your Zone

Flooding is so common because it can happen in so many different ways. Not all flooding originates from nature, but those internal floods are generally easier to get under control and clean up from.

Flooding emanating from the outdoors can be more challenging. When it comes to flooding from Mother Nature, we are no strangers to flash floods, river flooding and rising waters from the many creeks around the area. Houston is notorious for flooding in Texas, which means as their neighbor, it is crucial we are all prepared.

Start preparing yourself by checking where your property is in the area of flood zones. This will help improve your understanding of your specific risks in order to be the most prepared.

Get to know your yard as well. If after a heavy rain things are wet and soggy or you are in a lower area, additional drainage can help prevent water from piling up and seeping into your house.

If you have a lot of trees near your home or in your community, keep a close eye on your gutters. Adding covers could be a good way to prevent blockages and keep water off your roof. Checking your roof periodically is another way to keep rain moving, which is particularly important in our notoriously windy spring seasons.

Prepare to Prevent

The more you can get to know your area and how it reacts when rain or floods occur, the more you can do to stay safe—which is why this is such an important first step to take. There are other things you can do to ensure your home is ready for anything too. Some basic home maintenance can go a long way in making sure you are ready for any kind of flooding that comes your way.

Start with yard work. Make sure there is a gentle slope in your yard that will encourage rain to flow quickly away. If there is a place in your yard that likes to hold water, consider adding a garden or other organic material. This can help pull water underground.

Extending your gutter downspouts is another great way to prevent ponding. Take them underground for an extra layer of protection, especially when bodies of water start to rise.

Inside your house, take care of your windows and doors. Each fall and spring, check their seals and update caulking that has worn out. If you have a basement, make sure there are no visible cracks or gaps in the foundation. Check the corners on a sunny day to ensure you can’t see any light seeping through. Have it professionally sealed when you do spot problems. A sump pump is another great upgrade that will help prevent flooding.

Going back to the basics will always be the easiest and most effective way to be prepared for the possibility of flooding. Add flood safety steps to your regular routines so you can stress a little less the next time a heavy rain moves in. It will be much easier than helping your kids with math.

How to Deal With a Sewage Leak | SERVPRO of Westfield

3/15/2024 (Permalink)

sewage water pooling on a kitchen floor after a leak SERVPRO of Westfield is ready to respond to your call in a moments notice when biohazard incidents strike on your property.

When you think about scenarios you never want to walk into, finding a sewage leak in your home or office is likely to be high on the list. It may not be the most destructive kind of disaster that can strike, but it will be one of the grossest you have to deal with.

Unfortunately, sewage leaks can be pretty common and they can happen anywhere. It is important to understand how to respond if you find sewage seeping in or leaking out so that you can control the situation and get things back to normal fast.

What to Do First

When wastewater cannot move down your pipes due to a clog or blockage, it will find its way out through sink drains, tubs and showers. Sewage leaks can also be caused when damage is done to either your water line or pipes in your sewage system.

Where it comes from doesn’t really matter, once it has entered into your home or other space, it is important not to touch it. Water that causes damage in a building is classified in three different ways: white water, gray water and black water. While white water and gray water aren’t usually considered to be dangerous to deal with, black water is toxic and can be hazardous to your health. Sewage leaks are considered black water as they contain viruses, microbes and bacteria.

Stay away from the sewage leak and shut the water off to stop the flow of water. If you can safely do so, open windows around the affected area in order to let fumes escape. Make sure you secure the area as well—create a physical blockade if you have pets or small children so they cannot access the leak.

Where SERVPRO® Comes In

Our team is trained and certified in handling a number of different biohazard situations, including sewage leaks. With 247 availability, we can start the recovery process the moment you call us, even in the middle of the night. Over the phone we will gather as much information as possible in order to assemble a team and the tools needed to get you back on track safely.

Once we have gotten your information and a team is headed your way, spend some time taking photos of what has happened. Even though you may not want to ever see this again, the more documentation you have, the easier insurance claims will be. Our professionals can also use these photos to help get a better idea of everything that will need to be done to fully restore your property.

Our team will jump into action the moment they arrive by assessing the situation and working to find the root cause of the leak. It will also be one of our first priorities to remove any standing water and debris. While we will be working in protective gear to keep ourselves safe from the toxic materials, it’s best that you stay away until things are safe again.

As the recovery process proceeds, the original source of the leak will be addressed and corrected, along with any physical damage that was done. We will also spend a lot of time deep-cleaning and ensuring every odor is removed. It is our goal to make everything feel and smell exactly like it should.

Tackling a sewage leak isn’t just stinky—it can be a real hazard to your health. Call us when you find yourself dealing with a mess, and let our team handle everything.

Sewage leaks should always be cleaned up by professionals. Call SERVPRO, and we will take care of you.

Spring Storms Can Be Alarming | SERVPRO of Westfield

3/1/2024 (Permalink)

heavy rain pouring down on an outdoor metal roof in a storm Let SERVPRO of Westfield help you get from April showers to May flowers.

Spring has finally come around again, and with it the warmer temperatures and greener grass. The spring season can also come with some strong storms, including heavy thunderstorms, tornadoes and even early-season tropical systems.

As spring continues and the weather gets warmer, storms can become more and more severe. That combined with the start of hurricane season for our coastal neighbors means that we need to be prepared for anything.

Receiving weather alerts and staying informed ahead of situations is the best first step you can take in preparing your family and keeping everyone safe.

The Power of the Internet

None of us are ever far away from a phone or other screen, which makes them one of the best options for receiving weather alerts. You can receive Wireless Emergency Alerts that will happen automatically for a number of situations, and you can choose from a large number of apps as well.

As you look through apps to download, make sure you stick with trusted sources. Choose nationally recognized organizations, or go with a local news source. Many news stations offer their own apps, which can alert you to not only weather situations, but other local events as well. Make sure you sign up for the city notifications, too.

When an event is predicted, keep a close eye on the news. Watch the forecasts, and listen for potential evacuation orders and shelters opening so you know how to react as the situation continues.

Non-Electronic Options

It isn’t uncommon for even a small storm to knock out power long-term, which makes it important to have a backup source for receiving weather alerts. While we love staying connected with our devices, non-electronic options can ensure your safety when there is no way to recharge a battery.

If your home is near town sirens, get used to what they sound like so that you can safely shelter as needed. Consider investing in a weather radio as well. NOAA weather radios are portable and self-powered through a hand-crank or solar-power. These can run long-term regardless of electricity and can go with you when you need shelter or if you head out to check on your home in between storms.

When you are able to receive timely notification you can seek shelter and protect your life, but it may not stop damage from occurring to your home. If a storm rolls through town and leaves behind damage, call us. We are available around the clock to get things put back together fast so you can get back to normal.

Serious storms can cause serious property damage. Call SERVPRO® 247 for immediate restoration assistance.

Rebuilding Your Business After a Disaster | SERVPRO of Westfield

2/15/2024 (Permalink)

business man in office talking to female SERVPRO rep SERVPRO of Westfield is here for your business every step of the way, from ERPs to disaster recovery.

Disasters can leave behind damage that affects your home, your office and even your entire neighborhood. After a disaster strikes, you can be left feeling overwhelmed and wondering how to take the next step forward.

Putting our home lives together after a disaster will also be first on the list, but when you own a business, getting back to work is likely just as important. With a plan and our team at SERVPRO of Westfield, you can get back to your regular routine in no time.

Prepare Ahead of Time

In order to get back to work fast after a disaster, you need to have a plan before one can ever strike. When you and your team know what to do before, during and after a flood, fire or storm, you can keep work going with very little interruption.

Communication is one of the most crucial parts of creating a disaster plan. You and your team should be regularly going over your emergency response plan so that it can be enacted simply by saying “go.”

Regularly walk through your building with your employees in order to identify the best escape routes, fire extinguisher location and where the water shut-off valves are. Make sure several people know how to work emergency equipment, and go over the plan to secure your building when a storm is predicted to hit.

In order to get back to work once the major threat is over, ensure your staff knows how and when they are expected to check in. If you are going remote, distribute and check equipment early. If you are utilizing an alternate location, distribute security information and keys in order to eliminate any confusion as work gets started again.

Plan to use several forms of communication in order to keep up with everyone. Some disasters can knock out networks long-term, so be prepared to share information multiple times.

Recover Quickly

When you have enacted a well-rehearsed plan, you can rest a little easier knowing that recovery has begun before you even know the full effect of the disaster. Call our team at SERVPRO® as soon as it is safe, and we will get your physical recovery started right away, day or night.

While work begins on your property, you can start talking to your customers. Share your story across multiple platforms, and be open and honest about your plans to move forward. The more you can communicate with your community, the better.

Throughout recovery, be open and honest with yourself. You will need an open mind and plenty of flexibility in order to get through the disaster smoothly. Adjust your workflow when it is necessary, and remember this isn’t going to last forever.

With a plan and a total restoration team ready to respond the moment you need them, getting your business back on track after a disaster will be simple. Practice for emergencies and communicate well and things will be back to normal faster than you ever thought possible.

Has your business experienced a disaster, or do you want help building an emergency plan? Contact us to find everything you need.

You Only Need a Single Team to Handle Multiple Kinds of Damage | SERVPRO of Westfield

2/1/2024 (Permalink)

heavy rain pounding down on a blacktop surface SERVPRO of Westfield is Here to Help® when any disaster strikes!

The rule of three…when it rains, it pours—these ideas that one bad event often leads to another can sometimes feel entirely too true. Disasters are a prime example of this as the damage that is left behind can quickly become overwhelming.

Whether it stems from Mother Nature or an appliance failure inside your home, damage always comes in multiple forms. That is why knowing there is a team like ours at SERVPRO® right around the corner can ease your worries. With one call, we can handle anything.

The Impact of Disasters

When you consider the toll that a disaster can take on either your home or your community, it can be a lot to try and handle. Even if the weather gives you the gift of time to prepare ahead of a storm, things can change rapidly. Disasters that occur in your home can be just as challenging, as manmade issues are often completely unpredictable.

Rains can get heavy and cause flooding, which may cause excess moisture and leads to an outbreak of mold. High winds can tear down trees, threaten your roof or take the electricity out long-term. Fires create multiple kinds of damage as well, including smoke, soot, structural, water and odors.

Damage gets worse over time and continually compounds one on top of another. Along with the physical toll you have to face, the mental toll can be even greater. That is why you need fast recovery.

A Single Team, Total Restoration

Disasters require fast action. Our team is available to take your call 365 days a year, day or night. When you call our office, your recovery immediately begins as we gather your information and get a team ready to head to your property.

That means we have experienced the same disasters you have, and we have cleaned up homes and offices all around town.

When a storm rolls through and takes part of your roof with it, we will get to your home quickly to put a tarp on and prevent future damage while the rest of your recovery happens. When flooding strikes, we immediately start working to remove water and save all of your property. If part of your home is damaged beyond repair, we can tear it down and rebuild it in order to make things feel as normal as possible.

We are a total restoration team, which means with one call we will cover all of your needs. Our crew will stay by your side until you are completely satisfied. If a fire leaves behind strange odors, we will keep cleaning until things even smell normal again.

How to Stay Toasty and Safe | SERVPRO of Westfield

1/16/2024 (Permalink)

brick chimney with lit fire logs Fire safety is a top priority for us at SERVPRO of Westfield this winter. Keep your home safe with these helpful tips!

Even in our mostly warm climate, when winter fully sets in, we all love a good blanket and a crackling fire. When the temperatures drop, keeping our homes warm is crucial, but it also leaves us vulnerable to fires.

The number of fires goes up considerably in the winter, and many of them are due to the improper use of heating devices. The good news is that with some simple steps toward safety, you can be as cozy as you like when the cold sets in.

Addressing Your Fireplace

There is nothing quite as relaxing as the sights, sounds and smells of a fire in the fireplace. Fireplaces are a great way to heat your home, especially if the power goes out, but they can also be dangerous when used improperly. Clean, wood-burning fireplaces after every use, including removing all ash and debris. Chimneys should be inspected yearly by a professional and cleaned of any buildup.

Don’t keep flammable materials near your fireplace, including anything you put on your mantle. Dust is highly flammable, so keep things clean. For electric or gas fireplaces, check the connections every few months to avoid potential leaks. Make sure you have a smoke detector and a carbon monoxide detector in the room with your fireplace.

Space Heater Safety

Space heaters are a great choice for only warming a single room, which is a great way to warm up when the mornings are cold but the afternoons are hot. Space heaters come with a lot of risks, though, and yearly are responsible for nearly 1,700 house fires.

Always run your space heaters on a flat surface away from anything flammable. Check the cord for signs of wear and tear before you plug it in, and always plug directly into the wall. Take protective steps to keep your pets at least three feet away from your heater when it is running, and teach kids to stay away as well.

When you are cold, it can be tempting to put your heater right next to you, but avoid getting it too close to any furniture, rugs or curtains. Always turn space heaters off before you leave the room especially when it is time to call it a night.

Suggested Safety Features for Your Space Heater

While there are a lot of options for space heaters on the market, there are a few particular safety features you want to make sure anything you use has. That might mean if your current heaters haven’t been replaced in a while, it is time for an upgrade.

Look into the manufacturer you are purchasing from to ensure they are certified. Space heaters should go through a decent amount of testing before they are sold to ensure they are safe in most scenarios. Only use space heaters that come with automatic shut-off features. They should turn off when they are bumped, knocked over or have run for too long.

Cords on your heater need to be long enough to run in an open space. Six feet is generally reliable. Make sure it is well-made and feels heavy duty. Never use an extension cord or power strip with a space heater.

By paying your fireplace and space heaters a little extra attention, you can keep things cozy and warm without fear. If something does happen in your home, it only takes a call to our SERVPRO of Westfield office to get smoke, soot or other fire damage handled quickly.

A quick fire damage restoration is just a phone call away. Call SERVPRO® for immediate assistance.

The Places Water Likes to Hide | SERVPRO of Westfield

1/2/2024 (Permalink)

close up of condensation on window pane and ledge Water damage can happen anywhere in your home. Call SERVPRO of Westfield to restore water damage on your property 24/7, 365.

How often do you use water during the day? From hosing down the dog after a muddy romp to running a load of dishes in the dishwasher, having water whenever we need it makes our lives a whole lot easier. It makes our lives easier until it ends up in the wrong places, at least.

Whether it is Mother Nature throwing us for a loop or an appliance failure, water moves fast and can cause a whole lot of damage. When you get to know the most common places your home may be affected by water damage, though, you can take action to prevent it.

Under Your Sinks

Your kitchen and your bathrooms are both prime locations for potential water leaks that could lead to extensive damage. Under your sinks, there are likely multiple waterlines leading in different directions, and this combined with the items you have stored can make finding a drip hard to do.

Put checking under all your sinks on your weekly to-do list. Look for the obvious signs, like drops of water or puddles. Feel around all of the water lines under your sink, checking for deterioration or excess moisture.

Make sure that all of the connecting points are tight and replace anything that has started to wear out. Leaks under the sink can seep under your floor or into cabinets, so the faster you find them the better.

Beneath Appliances

Our appliances are another thing in our home that make our days easier, but they are also susceptible to water leaks. When an appliance has a small leak, it can be hard to find. They often start under or behind the appliance, which means they can drip long-term unnoticed.

Pull out your dishwasher, washing machines and refrigerator every few months for a deep cleaning. Check the area under and behind them for signs of water damage. Mold growth, soft spots in the floor or drops of water are all warning signs that you have a leak and need to dig a little deeper to find and correct it.

Behind Your Walls or Floors

There are a lot of reasons why even a small leak can be detrimental to your home, but one of the biggest ones is all the other places that water can get into. Water moves quickly, and it will find its way into every crevice, opening or crack. That means that any leak can result in damage behind your wall or under your floor.

Pay close attention if you think you smell a musty odor. A squeaky spot in the floor is another red flag that you should spend some more time investigating potential issues.

Around Your Windows and Doors

When the internal temperature or external temperatures dip from high to low in a day, it can lead to condensation on your windows. While this might be common, it could lead to structural damage as water seeps into the structure of your home. Condensation can hang out a lot longer than you think.

Run your hands around the windowframes and doorframes in your home every few weeks to feel for moisture. Check to ensure your seals don’t have any gaps, and fill in any caulking that has worn down.

Even if you do find damage in your home from a source of water, don’t let it worry you. With a single call to SERVPRO®, you can get restoration started fast. We are ready to handle anything from a total flood to structural damage done after a leak hid out too long. Whatever your home needs, we’ve got you covered.

Don’t ignore signs of water damage! Call SERVPRO for a quick restoration.

Thinking about disasters is not something any of us want to do, ever. Taking time to think about what our home or our community would look like after a disaster is even harder to do.

When a natural disaster is predicted, there are a lot of ways you can prepare both your home and your life. However, even a prepared home could still see damage after a storm or other disaster blows through town. Manmade disasters can strike completely unannounced, too—and leave your home in utter chaos.

It doesn’t really matter what happened or how it happened, when a disaster strikes, our main goal will always be putting our lives back together as quickly as possible. That is why having a local crew to help is important.

Making the Right Choice

Experiencing a disaster in your community or even in your own home can be totally overwhelming. You will need to make difficult decisions quickly, all while trying to navigate your emotions. Having a team you can rely on to help as you start the recovery process can be incredibly helpful.

Choosing the right service to handle your restoration is the first step you need to take for a fast track back to life as normal. You need a company that has plenty of experience and comes with trained and certified professionals. You also want a company that is available the moment you need them, even if that means the middle of the night.

SERVPRO® is all of those things, but we also come with the added benefit of being locally owned and operated. That means that we live in this community, too, and we understand how important our way of life is.

Our professional staff has felt firsthand the power of seeing our community affected by disaster, and we have cleaned up after every major and minor event that has occurred all around town. We aren’t just here to get the job done, we are here to get our lives put back together.

Home Damage and How It Happens | SERVPRO of Westfield

11/17/2023 (Permalink)

residential home with roof destroyed and debris falling down If you discover damage in your residence, call SERVPRO of Westfield right away.

Have you ever sat down and thought about the ways in which your home can be damaged? There are a lot of things that could happen, from severe weather to a fire. Even just a broken window from the neighborhood ball game that got out of control could have you calling your insurance company and facing a renovation.

There may be a lot of risks we face, but that doesn’t mean we should spend our days worrying about them. Instead, we should get ourselves and our homes prepared for them so that we know even the most unpredictable storm won’t leave us with extreme losses.

In order to be prepared for the damages our homes might end up with, we first need to understand them. The more we get to know what risks we have, the more we can also understand how easy recovering from them can be. With SERVPRO of Westfield right around the corner, recovery after a disaster won’t only be easy, but it will be fast.

The Biggest Risks

Texas weather can be pretty volatile year-round. The warm months bring us hurricane season, which can still affect us in Westfield and the surrounding areas even though we are some distance from the coast. We also have to contend with the possibility of tornadoes, along with strong thunderstorms, flooding and strong winds.

While the threats are many, there are three main ways every home can be damaged that preparation efforts can be focused on. Water, fire and roof damage are common risks across the nation.

All three of these risks can happen in a number of ways. Your roof is at risk from high winds, intense rainfall or seemingly random occurrences like a limb falling out of a tree. Water can damage your home during a flood or from a plumbing failure. While the risk of wildfires is not non-existent in Texas, most fires come from internal sources and are due to human error.

Compounding Damages

Dealing with a disaster is a lot, but when you start to clearly see the amount of damage that has been left behind, you can quickly feel like it is too much to handle. Natural disasters rarely only leave behind one kind of damage, and even if they do, that damage will begin to compound as time progresses.

A flash flood will soak everything that happens to be in its route, but it also creates the perfect environment for mold to grow and spread quickly towards the foundation of your home. Fires don’t just burn anything near the flames—they also spread smoke and soot throughout your entire house. The effort to put the fire out can create damage from water or chemicals as well.

No matter where your damage came from, your restoration process will likely take several steps to complete. SERVPRO® is trained for a number of scenarios, which means we can handle anything your recovery requires. We have the equipment for water, wind, fire, mold and even construction repairs, and there isn’t a situation we haven’t seen.

If a flood overtakes your basement or your roof develops a leak during a heavy rain, our first goal will be to dry everything as fast as possible. As the recovery process proceeds, we will also take steps to make sure your home is stable—which could mean replacing roof beams or parts of your foundation. Before we are finished, we will sanitize and remove odors throughout your entire home, making sure everything is well sealed in order to prevent future mold growth.

When a fire strikes, we will again approach your recovery step by step, starting with the most damaged areas. Our team will remove anything that cannot be recovered and ensure your home is structurally sound. Fire restoration is a whole home process, even if the flames were small. We will assess every single room to ensure no lingering odors, smoke or soot damage are left behind. If part of your home was damaged beyond repair, we can rebuild it so that everything is just like new.

SERVPRO works directly with your insurance company and will handle any additional contractors that are required throughout your restoration. That means with one phone call you are done—we cover everything else for you.

Does your home need restoration and you don’t want to make more than one call? Contact us to get everything handled by one team.
