Salvation Army Family Store sees water damage, closes for restoration - El Dorado News-Times

Posted: 21 Apr 2019 08:13 PM PDT

The Salvation Army Family Store is temporarily closed due to water damage from the last few weeks of storms. On April 20, El Dorado saw a record breaking inches of rain at 3.24 and flooding across town. The Family Store was one of the locations that saw flooding.

Capt. Jason Perdieu said none of the merchandise inside the store was damaged. However, the carpet and walls received some damage and the roof will need replaced. Perdieu isn't sure when the store will be able to open again.

"We don't because we have to get the roof replaced and with all the continuous rain, it's hard for them to get up there to fix the roof," he said. "The storms are prohibiting a lot of the progression of the work to get done."

Work inside started Tuesday to remove carpet and start drying everything out. Perdieu said with the flooding, there's the potential for mold growth, which means getting space blowers, drying agents and chemicals in to make sure that doesn't happen.

"For the safety of our staff, community and customers we had to get everything from the show floor quickly so that the company could come in and take up the carpet, remove part of the walls and start that restoration process," he said.

On Monday, the Salvation Army put out a call on it's Facebook page asking for community members to help move merchandise from the showroom to storage areas so that the restoration crew could get started the next day.

"In El Dorado, I've found that if you put out the call for help El Dorado comes to take care of their own and they did that morning," Perdieu said. "We had a number of volunteers show up to give their time and efforts to help us get that taken care of."

Bangor ME Carpet Cleaning Services Company Completes IICRC Water Damage Restoration 501 Course - Press Release - Digital Journal

This press release was orginally distributed by SBWire

Carmel, ME -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/23/2019 -- Ori Klibansky, owner of Maine Carpet Cleaning, is pleased to announce the company has completed the IICRC Water Damage Restoration 501 Course.It is a major step forward for the company, which now will handle water damage restoration in addition to standard carpet cleaning.

The IICRC, Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, is an organization that sets standards for carpet cleaning and water damage restoration.Accreditation is very difficult to obtain, so this accolade is something Klibanskyand his team are excited to share.

"It is a very rigorous test similar to how other trade professionals achieve certain levels.The ASE program for auto mechanics is a close example.It has taken a few years to make it, and we have to maintain the certification with classes and training," said Klibansky.

The certification provides industry standards in cleaning and restoration as well as new and developing technologies within the industry.The standards for water damage, for example, require a great deal of training and understanding.

Since virtually anyone can start up a carpet cleaning business with a bit of capital and equipment, the water damage restoration side is much more challenging.This is why so many in the industry do not perform this service.

"Many people do not realize the dangers that can be associated with water damage.Molds, particularly black mold, can be potentially life threatening, and it does not take much for the mold to grow.Water damage restoration specialists have to be exceptionally thorough to keep this from happening.This is a major part of the IICRC accreditation," said Klibansky.

The certification does not change Maine Carpet Cleaning's promise of service and results.It is just a way to let their customers know if there is water damage, the customer will be in excellent hands during the recovery process.

"Here in Maine, water damage is a very real possibility.My company is ready 24/7 in case of an emergency.We want to get in and out as quickly as possible so our customers can return to their regular lives.Being displaced because of water damage is trying to say the least," continued Klibansky.
