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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Whether you call it a spigot, hose bibb, or hose faucet, it can burst when frozen, leading to a nasty leak inside your wall. That’s not the Frozen your kids are infatuated with.

There are some compelling reasons why you’re in good hands with American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC. To add yet another reason to the list, we’re Lead-Safe Certified by the Environmental Protection Agency.

If you chronically have issues at home with nasal stuffiness, wheezing, eye or skin irritation—and don’t have a plausible explanation for it—you may be suffering the effects of hidden mold.

American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC likes to spotlight its members from time to time, and we’d like to introduce Heavon Fegan and Dave Smith, the roofing-sales team leaders at American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC. Experts at providing roof estimates and working with insurance adjusting firms, they attribute their success to their high level of integrity.

An El Niño year means more precipitation for New Mexico. Did you know that one inch of rain on a 1,500-square-foot roof generates 9,351 gallons of runoff? That’s a lot of water, and it could potentially damage your home.

During the snowy winter season in New Mexico, American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC recommends that homeowners examine their roof for ice dams, which are a major cause of roof leaks.

Ice dams form when snow covers your roof while the outside temperature is below freezing and the interior temperature of your attic is very warm. One sign that you may have an issue with an ice dam is the formation of icicles at the edge of your roof. Although amazing to look at and beautiful to photograph, icicles build up as result of water freezing, melting, and re-freezing over time. Eventually, water and ice will form behind the icicles, creating an ice dam.
