Frozen Pipes

In the Portland Metro area snow is not terribly coming but we do get bellow freezer temperatures from time to time which can cause frozen pipes to occur. Frozen pipes occur when there is sustained bellow freezing temperatures for multiple days the water inside a pipe will freeze and cause a pipe to expand, often times cracking the pipe. Once the temperature rises and the pipe begins to thaw water will begin to flow from the crack and cause water damage.
Once signs of the water damage are visible it's important to turn off the water to that pipe and get the pipe fixed or temporarily patched to stop more damage from occurring. SERVPRO of Gresham & SERVPRO of Oregon City/Sandy has the team with skills, knowledge, experience and the tools to help you make it “Like it never even happened.”

Equipment Used by SERVPRO of Gresham

In this picture you will see a HEPA Air Scrubber. We use air scrubbers as a negative air machine to remove airborne contamination during restoration, abatement, and remediation work. Air enters to unit passing through a three-stage HEPA filtration system to remove airborne particles. When a carbon filter is added, it also removed airborne odors and gases.

Mitigation Equipment SERVPRO of Gresham Uses

SERVPRO of Gresham was mitigating a job that required a fan as well as a dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers work by extracting water vapor from the air and lower the relative humidity, which in turn increases rate of evaporation. In a water damaged structure, dehumidifiers pull in the moist, humid air and then discharge dry, warm air. The dry air acts like a sponge absorbing moisture from wet materials.

Do You Know What Carpet Delamination Is?

A common problem with water damaged carpet is, if not dried quickly there will be delamination and mildew damage. Delamination is when there is the separation of the secondary backing from the primary backing of the carpet. If the carpet and the secondary backing are not attached strongly enough, they can separate, causing an installed carpet to wrinkle or pucker.

Air movers are used in water damage restoration to enhance evaporation at the surface level, thereby reducing drying time. As airflow at the surface level increases, the moisture in the air increases. This moisture is then eliminated via the use of dehumidification equipment.
