Water Heather Maintenance Tips for your New Mexico Home

5/27/2022 (Permalink)

A water heater accounts for about 18% of the energy used in a modern home.

As a result, a water heater is one of your home's most critical and costly appliances. Proper water heater maintenance is necessary to guarantee that it continues to function properly and does not cost you too much. Checking on your water heater in the spring is an excellent idea. Water damage can occur quickly, so it's crucial to ensure sure it's in good operating order.

Here are some tips to keep your water heater running at peak performance.

  • To determine if your anode rod needs to be replaced, inspect it every two years or if the warranty has ended every year.
  • Attach a garden hose to the valve at the base of the water heater tank every six months to remove sediment. Please turn off the electricity and run the hot water until it cools down for safety.
  • A plumbing specialist should perform a yearly check of the shut-off valve and all piping. Broken valves, loose or moist joints, and rust are signs that more severe harm is on the way.
  • Turn the temperature down to 1there'sre’s no reason to keep your water heater above it. At that temperature, you can do everything you n ed. But, of course, keeping your water heater hotter can cause it to break down much faster.

If you experience water damage, SERVPRO NE Albuquerque has a team of highly trained professionals to help you 2 7. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us at 505-828-3567

Restore or Replace?

5/26/2022 (Permalink)

When your Residential property has been damaged by fire or water, SERVPRO of NE Albuquerque's mission is to make it "Like it never even happened" as quickly as possible and at the lowest possible cost to you.

Part of recovering your home and belongings includes identifying which things and structures can be preserved using our cutting-edge restoration procedures and equipment and which will need to be replaced—according to research conducted by the insurance and repair industries, restoring property after the fire and water damage is less expensive than replacing it. Restoring is also less disruptive to our clients, allowing them to stay in their homes throughout the process and rapidly return to normal.

 Our SERVPRO Team is trained to identify when restoring can be performed with the high-quality outcomes that our clients deserve as a preferred mitigation and restoration partner for most major insurance companies. This "repair" rather than "replace" mindset can help you save money while keeping family treasures, keepsakes, and other impossible or prohibitively expensive items to replace.

If your home or business has been impacted by water or fire damage, call the professionals at SERVPRO of NE Albuquerque today at 505-828-3567

Smoke damage in your New Mexico home?

5/26/2022 (Permalink)

If your house is still standing after a fire doesn't imply the damage is done. The fact that objects burn causes a surprising amount of fire damage. The smoke residue is to blame. The soot and smoke damage can worsen even after the fires are out.

Smoke can even damage regions not touched by flames and has the potential to spread to rooms where the fire did not occur, causing damage. Smoke damage occurs in some wildfires, even in buildings not involved in the fire!

Several acids are commonly found in smoke. The chemical composition varies depending on the fire's origin, but carbon and sulfur acids are generally present. Scientists continue to produce discoveries concerning the composition of smoke regularly. For example, researchers only recently discovered a type of acid in smoke that they had never heard of before. Even smoke that isn't acidic can be harmful.

 Items that may be damaged

  • Carpets
  • Curtains and upholstery
  • Furniture
  • Clothing
  • Appliances
  • Plastic
  • Porcelain

 When it comes to smoke damage, time is always of the essence. The sooner you act, the better your chances of avoiding permanent injury. Some materials, such as synthetic fibers and porous things, require immediate action to be properly rescued. The elements of your home, such as painted walls and floors, must be addressed in days, if not hours. Furthermore, painted walls and wood furniture can become permanently discolored if not handled promptly. When smoke and soot particles are left on metal surfaces for too long, they can rust and corrode. The longer you wait to remediate your smoke-damaged house, the more extensive the damage will develop, and the remediation cost will rise.

We specialize in fire and water damage restoration and have extensive fire damage cleanup and restoration training to get your property back to normal. For example, if you had a fire in your home or were close to one, call SERVPRO of NE Albuquerque. We can be reached at 505-828-3567.

Preventing a Flooded Basement in your New Mexico Home

5/26/2022 (Permalink)

Water in your basement can cause damage to your walls and flooring, as well as carpets and furniture, and can harm priceless objects like photo albums, antiques, and family treasures frequently used for storage.

Water damage can be expensive to repair, whether from a plumbing leak, a roof leak, or a flooded basement. Taking the proper preparations now will save you money, time, and problems later on, and it may even help you avoid massive, unforeseeable natural disasters. Here are a few home modifications that will reduce the likelihood of water damage:

Add or update drainage

Use gutters and downspouts to ensure water is diverted away from your home and its foundation. The easiest solutions to overflowing gutters are either adding another downspout on that run of gutter or increasing the size of the downspout.

 Install a sump pump

 Try this addition if water damage has been a severe problem in your home's lower level. Choose a cast-iron sump pump, which may last longer, and consider buying a battery-powered backup pump if the power goes out.

Seal Your Basement

This is a very logical step, but one many homeowners fail to keep up with year after year. Sealing openings to your basement means keeping weatherstripping around doors in good condition and making sure windows are caulked.

Install a water leak detection system

An automatic water shut-off valve is a water leak detection system that will shut off the water supply to the home when it detects water on the floor or an irregular flow in the pipe.

Check Your Landscaping

Although plants absorb water from the soil, they can also cause water intrusion in your basement. If they're too close to the foundation, roots may penetrate, resulting in cracks or bowing walls that allow water in. Overgrown shrubs may also restrict once-proper drainage and allow water to pool too close to your home.

Clean the Gutters

Clean the gutters on your roof to ensure that they don't overflow during a rainstorm. The downspouts carry the water away from your home, and if they aren't clear of debris, the water might flow into your home's basement.

Check Your Foundation for Cracks

Check your home's foundation from the inside and outside for any cracks. If you notice small cracks, use caulk to seal them. If the cracks are extensive, you will need the help of a professional to fix them before they cause damage to your basement.

Our SERVPRO team of NE Albuquerque are Professionals in water damage restoration. We are your best option to efficiently and thoroughly inspect your home of standing water and get it cleaned up quickly. Several potential problems could arise from waiting to address standing water in your house.

Why are your windows leaking in your New Mexico Home?

5/26/2022 (Permalink)

Windows leaking is particularly common, and they also make it difficult for homeowners to determine what the problem may be. However, there are many factors to consider when analyzing the cause of a window leak, so before repair can take place, a diagnosis is necessary.

Main reasons that windows leak and what you can do about them.

Water on the Windows When There's No Rain

Water droplets that form on the inside of the glass that doesn't correspond to the outdoor weather are a sign of condensation. It can be easily remedied by adjusting your home's humidity with central air conditioning or a dehumidifier. By lowering the moisture levels in the air, you can reduce the amount of condensation that forms on the window. Excess condensation can lead to mold growth over time.

Water is coming in around the window.

Often, these leaks happen because the caulk or sealant around the window has gotten old and cracked, allowing rain to enter the house. The fix for this situation is simple – peel out the old caulking and replace it with new window caulking.

The window leaking Around the Top of Your Window

Leaks at the top of the window can signify mistakes made during installation. For instance, the flashing might be improperly installed, or it might be missing altogether. However, if the house wrap isn't correctly installed, that could cause the window to leak, too.

The window is leaking at the bottom.

If the windows have metal or vinyl frames, they have drain holes near the bottom edge of the frame. These holes are designed to allow the water to escape the frame, but they can become clogged. Clean out the jams.

All windows should have a sill pan that allows water to drain to the house's exterior, and the sill needs to slope away from the window. If either is missing or wrong, you may need to reinstall the window to correct the problem.

Water is leaking between the panes of a double-paned window.

The glass seal has deteriorated, and rain is working between the panes. However, that gas that's supposed to be between the panes to provide an insulating factor is gone. Installing new windows will increase the home's energy efficiency.

For any water damage in your home or commercial property, SERVPRO of NE Albuquerque's highly trained technicians are ready to help you out 24/7. We'll restore the water damage and make it look "Like it never even happened." Call us today at 505-828-3567

Commercial Cleaning for your Business in New Mexico

COMMERCIAL CLEANING FOR YOUR BUSINESS IN NEW MEXICO

Most people do not have time to care about the daily wear and tear that contaminates their office or commercial establishment. However, when your typical housekeeping crew can't handle the dirt, odor, or moisture problems, call SERVPRO of NE Albuquerque for prompt assistance. Call us today at 505-828-3567

Whether removing an odor problem or deep cleaning flooring or carpets, you can rely on us to make your place of business look it's very best.

Our services

Carpet and Upholstery

Carpets act as a filter trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. Carpet and upholstery tend to show soiling over time.

Ceilings, Walls, and Hard Floors

Dirt and dust, pet dander, cooking oils and grease, cigarette smoke, and other contaminants may be present on your business's ceilings, walls, and hardwood floors. These toxins can be spread throughout your home by your heating and cooling system. Soils tend to collect on these materials over time, and specialized cleaning will be required to eliminate this buildup.

Professional Deodorization and Odor Removal

We are trained to detect and eliminate unwanted scents as deodorization specialists. SERVPRO teaches IICRC technical classes on odor elimination. The odor can typically be eradicated without leaving a trace by identifying the source of the odor and determining the conditions under which it comes into contact with any surfaces.
