Smoke Smelling up your home? Let us professionals help you!

Smoke coming out of home Don't let smoke damage ruin your day!!

Are you one of the 1.3 million people each year that has had a home fire? How will you ever get rid of that smell?  OZONING!  What is ozoning and how does it work?

Normal oxygen (O2) is converted to O3, which is commonly called ozone.  It reverts back to O2 in about an hour if the O3 is unused.  This leaves the air fresh and clean because the source of the order has been permanently removed.  And there are no artificial odors so the space becomes free of odors, as nature intended.

Outdoors, nature eliminates odors and microorganisms using UV light and O3.  Indoors, most places receive very little UV light or O3 to help eliminate the odors.  An ozone machine creates O3, or ozone, in a process that utilizes an electrical current.  Ozone sanitizes the air by breaking down odors and microorganisms at their source.

Nature creates O3 as a natural cleaning during thunderstorms, and also from the sunlight striking the earth’s atmosphere.  We have all taken a walk after a thunderstorm and experienced that fresh clean, fresh smell in the air.  That’s O3, or ozone, at work.

SERVPRO also offers a service at our facility where we can ozone specific items like clothing, furniture, or anything that has smoke damage and get it smelling better than new.

Maintenance on your dish washer can lower your risk of water damage to your home!!

Water coming out of dishwasher Call SERVPRO today if this happens to you.

The dishwasher in your Orem residence certainly has made life a little easier than the tiresome hours that used to get spent in front of the sink hand cleaning every specific dish. While this appliance has offered much regarding efficiency and convenience, it is not entirely devoid of potential problems and threats to your home if it is not properly maintained.

One of the greatest risks that homeowners face with an aging dishwasher is water damage in there Spanish Fork home. From the simplest of mistakes that any user could make to the literal degradation of the working parts that seal and operate your appliance, water damages are possible at any time. Avoiding these circumstances might seem impossible, but you can limit the possibility with some routine maintenance and repairs.

Many homeowners have this low appreciation for the appliances in their home, so much so that they react to the problems that their machines experience rather than checking them regularly for routine wear and tear concerns. Even an annual inspection can help to identify risks and potential problems and help you to avoid these concerns before they turn into substantial water loss events.

Sometimes, however, the dishwasher is not always the problem. User error has attributed to many water loss incidents in local homes as well, where the appliance did not get entirely closed or wedged open as the washing and rinsing cycles run. Several gallons of water can drain out onto the floors of the kitchen at this point, demanding immediate attention from competent restoration technicians like our SERVPRO team.

While initial assessment of the damage, however it originated, is critical to determining what must happen to restore it, this is a precursor to the work that must occur in that first visit. Extraction and even initial drying efforts can help to limit the widespread damage that weakens the structural elements of your home. Fast response from our SERVPRO technicians can help to reduce or even eliminate swelling and irreparable damage to flooring materials in this affected area of your home.

It might seem like there are so many threats to your home that are out of your control. Dishwasher concerns leading to water damages can often get avoided with the right precautionary measures and preventative maintenance, however. If you have a water emergency or require clean up services in your home, do not hesitate to give our SERVPRO of Provo restoration specialists a call today at (801) 226-1363.

Tips on how to avoid frozen pipes during a winter storm in Provo.

3/3/2020 (Permalink)

sign that says Storm Ahead with rain Utah storms can make some serious damage!!

For those who leave their homes for extended periods of time during cold winter storms, it may be important to know what to do to prevent water pipes from freezing and bursting. Water in a pipe that freezes and ultimately bursts may result in a flooded home. This could create a horrible situation for a homeowner. While water damage repair professionals can be called to complete a water pipe repair due to a broken pipe, there are steps that a homeowner can take to prevent the situation from occurring in the first place. Here are three simple ways to help prevent frozen or bursting pipes.

1. Keep the Heat On


In cold climates, it may be very helpful to keep the heater turned on anytime that the house will be vacant. Keeping the heat turned to at least 50 degrees Fahrenheit may help to prevent pipes from freezing. Also opening cabinet doors underneath sinks and where pipes are located may help air to circulate around pipes and keep them warm.

2. Turn Water in the Home Off or Allow Faucets to Drip

A homeowner may choose to turn the water to the home off entirely. However, if the water is to remain on while the family is out of town, keeping faucets open a little bit may prevent a broken pipe. Water expands when it freezes. Therefore, faucets that drip can help prevent the freezing of stationary water and relieve pressure inside the pipes, avoiding the need for a water pipe repair due to a rupture.

Lint in air duct. Don't let your ducts get dirty!!

Duct cleaning generally refers to the cleaning of various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.

If not properly installed, maintained and operated, these components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the air of your commercial business. Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people if they are exposed to them.

Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. Make it a priority to inspect the ductwork of your business.

If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating one or more of the following:

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Odors
  • Dirt and debris
  • Other contaminants

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • It helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • It helps reduce the potential for mold growth.
