Humidity Can Cause Property Damage

Water damage doesn’t always come in the obvious form of excess precipitation or broken pipes. Did you know that excessive humidity can leave your property at risk for water and mold damage? The dew point is the atmospheric temperature below which water droplets begin to condense and form dew, and unbalance indoor and outdoor temperatures can cause condensation in your home.

In these hot and sticky times of humid weather, it’s a good idea to keep track of the current dew point near your home, especially since you’re likely running your air conditioning nearly non-stop. If the surface temperature of the building materials in your home drops to the dew point or lower, condensation can form and cause water damage followed by mold and mildew if it’s not addressed. This most commonly occurs on or around windows.

If you think that the hot and humid weather we’ve been having has caused water damage due to condensation in your home, call Master Clean for an inspection right away!

Smoke and Soot Damage: Unpleasant Summer Guests

Summertime is finally here, for the most part, but Northern Wisconsin has been a little slow on the uptake.  Fortunately, the cool, damp evenings we’ve had lately don’t have to ruin your summer fun.  They’re perfect for snuggling up in front of a cozy fire.  But, what happens if that fire gets a little out of control?

Fire damage to a property doesn’t always come in the form of big flames and massive damages.  Smoke and soot from an overexuberant fire or cooking accident can cause damage all on their own.  They can cause unsightly stains and leave a lingering odor that can prove to be nearly impossible to remove on your own.  Additionally, depending on the source, both smoke and soot can contain contaminants that are dangerous to your health.  

If you’ve experienced smoke or soot damage in Medford, WI or the surrounding areas, call Master Clean.  Our expert technicians are ready 24/7 to come to the rescue with the knowledge and equipment necessary to rid your home of lingering stains, odors, and hidden dangers.  Additionally, we can work directly with your insurance company if it becomes necessary.  You can trust that you’re in good hands with us, so don’t hesitate to call right away!
