Sprinkler Systems

6/2/2021 (Permalink)

We all love a lawn that looks amazing! Sometimes we just do not get enough rain and our lawns start looking a little brown. There are under ground sprinkler systems that can do the work for us. But they can also cause havoc on our homes if not installed properly or not taken care of.

  • Overspray: When sprinklers overshoot their intended watering targets and spray on or near building walls, water can seep into the foundation and possibly into your basement.
  • Improper installation: Your sprinkler system delivers water to different zones via a series of underground rubber tubes or hoses that connect to the home’s water line. But if these hoses run too close to the foundation and there happens to be a leak in them, homeowners may unknowingly find themselves with water inside their property.
  • Broken pipes: As we noted above, sprinkler systems tap into the home’s water line. Usually, part of the system is installed within the home to accomplish this. However, if the sprinkler pipes inside the home become frozen or damaged, it will become a problem inside the home.
  • User error: Installing a rain sensor with your system will analyze rainfall to determine whether your lawn needs watering. This can help prevent excessive water buildup around the property. Also, it’s recommended to have your system professionally started up every spring and winterized every fall to ensure correct operation.

Check your hot water heaters

2/16/2021 (Permalink)

Your hot water heater is one of those appliances that may have remained unseen or forgotten about. However, it is important to make sure to keep up regular maintenance for many reasons.  Homeowners can wake up in the middle of the night or even come home to water all over their home.  Depending on the size, it can possibly leave up to 50+ gallons of water.   Below are a few signs that it may be time to change out the hot water heater in your home.

  • Typically, a gas hot water heater can last about 8 to 12 years, while an electric model will last slightly longer from about 10 to 15 years. If your water heater is getting up in years, it may be time to replace it before it breaks
  • If a puddle surrounds the base of the hot water heater, it is important to act immediately
  • If there is no hot water while using the tap, this may be an indicator it is time to get the hot water heater checked
  • Signs of tinted water coming from your hot water tap means there may be rust in the hot water heater, which may show possible aging and a signal of an oncoming leak
  • Gurgling or popping noises coming from your water heater are caused by the buildup of hard water sediment heating up and exploding inside your water heater tank

Do's and Don'ts

1/8/2021 (Permalink)

Any kind of water lose is never fun! SERVPRO is always here to help and here are a few do’s and don’ts when damage does happen.

Do’s

  • If the outside temperature is above 65 degrees, use dehumidifiers if available.
  • Use fans to circulate the air and assist in drying.
  • Remove as much water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe furniture dry.
  • Lift draperies off carpet, loop through a coat hanger, and place the hanger on the drapery rod.
  • Prop up wet furniture cushions for even drying and place small wood blocks or aluminum foil under furniture legs.
  • Remove wet area rugs or other floor coverings.
  • Open furniture drawers, closet doors, and luggage to enhance drying.
  • Move guns, photos, paintings, and art objects to a safe, dry location.
  • Remove wet fabrics and dry them as soon as possible. Hang furs and leather goods to dry separately at room temperature.
  • Remove damp books from shelves and spread out to dry.
  • If damage occurs during a cool season, leave heat on; if in summer, use an air conditioner if available.

Don’ts

  • Do not use an ordinary household vacuum to remove water.
  • Do not use electrical appliances while on wet carpet or wet floors.
  • Do not go into rooms with standing water if the electricity is still on.
  • Do not lift tacked down carpet without help from a professional carpet cleaning service. Lifting the carpet incorrectly could promote shrinkage and create damage.
  • Do not wait before calling SERVPRO and beginning the water damage restoration process. Water damage, as well as and bacteria and mold growth can begin within hours.

Snow and a leaking roof

1/4/2021 (Permalink)

While most of us thing the snow is beautiful to look at through a window, the below freezing temps and heavy snow can be devastating to your home or business. We at SERVPRO have some suggestions of what to do and not to do for your home or business this winter.

  • Preventing a roof collapse

Get yourself a roof rake, it can save your roof from ending up inside your home or business. Most roofs can handle about 20 pounds of snow per square foot before becoming weak. You want to do what you safely can to keep your roof as clean as possible, that is where a roof rake comes in handy. You can reach most of your roof safely from the ground or not to far off the ground.

  • Check your gutters

Clean any debris out such as twigs and leaves. The gutter and down spout clear at all times for any melting snow to be able to run away from the building. If they are blocked in any way, it can cause a devastating ice damn.

  • Insulate your attic or roof line

Ice damns happen when heat escapes from your roof, melting the snow and freezes around the water. Leaking roof can damage walls and ceilings which than in turn can cause a mold issue. So, make sure your roof is in good working order and you have plenty of insulation in the attic. Do not keep the attic anymore than 5 to 10 degrees warmer than your home.

If you have any questions regarding roof damage or ice damns feel free to give us a call 24/7

A burst pipe is no good pipe

12/9/2020 (Permalink)

With this cold weather come freezing water and pipes. With very little to no snow cover to insulate or protect your pipes, they are exposed to the freezing winds and ground. There are many precautions everyone can take to prevent a pipe bursting and may save you hundreds to thousands of dollars.

  • Heat tape. You can go to your local hardware store to purchase. It will keep your pipes at the temperature to prevent them from freezing.
  • Stacking straw or hay bales around the foundation of your home can help keep the wind and snow out with helping to keep the little bit of warmth in.
  • Leaving water trickling. Leave your faucets on just a little bit can save so much. Keeping water flowing can save it from freezing. It also releases any pressure that may build up from freezing and expanding

Any questions please feel free to give us a call (715)643-7171

Menomonie Residents: We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration!

10/2/2018 (Permalink)

There are a number of reasons why your Menomonie basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure

Flooded Home in Barron, Dunn, or Rusk Counties?

5/3/2018 (Permalink)

As the snow and ice has quickly melted, you may be standing in a flooded area. Here are a few tips from American Red Cross that can help you cleanup up after a flood. If the job is just too large, give the professional team at SERVPRO of Barron, Dunn, and Rusk Counties a call at715-643-7171.  

Tips:

  • Wear protective clothing, including rubber gloves and rubber boots, and be cautious when cleaning up.
  • Learn more about how to clean up after a flood, including the supplies you’ll need, how to sanitize food contact surfaces, and how to repair water damage.
  • Be careful when moving furnishings or debris, because they may be waterlogged and heavier.
  • Throw out items that absorb water and cannot be cleaned or disinfected. This includes mattresses, carpeting, cosmetics, stuffed animals and baby toys.
  • Throw out all food, beverages and medicine exposed to flood waters and mud. When in doubt, throw it out. This includes canned goods, plastic utensils, baby bottle nipples and containers with food or liquid that has been sealed shut.
  • Pump out flooded basements gradually (about one-third of the water per day) to avoid structural damage. If the water is pumped out completely in a short period of time, pressure from water-saturated soil on the outside could cause basement walls to collapse.
  • Service damaged septic tanks, cesspools, pits, and leaching systems as soon as possible. Damaged sewage systems are health hazards.

  • Your insurance information (if applicable)
  • The street address of the water-damaged home or business
  • When did the flooding or water damage occur?
  • What caused the water damage (if known)?
  • Is there electricity available (on-site)?
