So, how do you know just how safe you are with water damage? American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC can tell you—based on their Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training, certification, and knowledge.

We touch on health risks of mold quite often in our American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC blogs—and for a good reason. No single element that we encounter in any cleanup or call more is the presence of mold. And, homeowner concern is out there. Our online advertising efforts show searches for mold-related home issues in 2015 cleared over 18,000 searches in New Mexico alone.

As the weather changes, and cool temps and rain begin to move into New Mexico once again, it’s important to protect your most precious possession—your home. American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC recommends some common checks you can do to reduce the risk of expensive repairs to your home.

First, make sure to inspect your roof for leaks. If safe and available, go into your attic with a flashlight and see if you can determine if there have been previous leaks. Some of the signs may be: stained or discolored wood around roof penetrations; discolored wood or insulation in other parts of the roof; stained and sagging insulation; or, the presence of any type of mold-looking residue.

For people who’ve experienced a fire in their home, the initial cleanup of soot and water can be only the beginning. On top of the devastation of possibly losing irreplaceable personal items and memorabilia, the process of getting the home back in living order can be filled with difficulties.

Many advance weather warnings will be initiated throughout the state of New Mexico this monsoon season—American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC believes it is important to your safety to understand the differences between the levels of concern related to your weather safety.

Heavy sudden rains are a reality for home and business owners in the New Mexico. As monsoon season approaches, it is especially important to stay up to date with local weather forecasts and predictions. American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC believes it’s important that all family members and all business employees are aware of evacuation plans and have access to disaster supply kits.

Sometimes people mistakenly think that because they live in a dry climate that there is no chance of their home flooding. Nothing is further from the truth. All homes have hidden flooding dangers that can occur, wreaking havoc on the house's contents and its occupants. If left unchecked, water damage from interior flooding can make your home unsafe structurally and even affect interior air quality. That's why it's important to have an experienced company like American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC, clean the damage and perform flood restoration work.

The intense rains and high winds of monsoon season in the Southwest here. The high concentration of moisture and very real flash flooding risk during monsoon months can wreak havoc on the exteriors of homes and other buildings.

Property owners should understand that water supply lines or pressurized toilet tanks can create flooding dangers inside a residential or commercial structure, leading to significant damages to a building’s materials and structure. To prevent a flooding incident that can cause serious damage to a structure’s walls, floors or ceilings, at American Restoration Water & Fire, LLC, we recommend checking all of a building’s plumbing fixtures inside and outside of a building frequently.

Home and business owners throughout New Mexico considering upgrading their roofing may want to consider the advantages as well as disadvantages of installing a flat roof rather than one featuring sloped construction. American Restoration Water and Fire LLC understands that flat roofs are becoming increasingly popular because of their affordability, but they must be properly sealed in order to maintain their structural integrity as well as properly maintained in order to prevent roof leaks.

The worst part about a flood is the flood cleanup and water damage to a property. Fortunately, there are water damage restoration companies to assist in the cleanup. American Restoration is here to help you mitigate the damage caused by water either from natural floods, broken pipes, or another accident.

Asbestos has been heavily used in the recent past as a soundproof, insulator and fireproof material in all types of buildings. It was later determined to be the cause of serious and fatal lung disorders. It is generally not considered to be a hazard unless it is disturbed from the location it rests. Removal is important, but you want to make sure it is done by experts like American Restoration that are EPA/AHERA certified.
