Although, you may be able to clean up the standing water. It takes special equipment like dehumidifiers, air movers, and moisture monitors to properly dry your walls, floors, and other surfaces. If you do not properly dry these. It can lead to bowed or swollen walls,floors and ceilings. It can also lead to a mold infestation. that is why we offer free estimates.

Hurricane Harvey hit last month devastating Texas. This Week we have an even bigger threat getting ready to hit Florida hard. Hurricane Irma is reportedly a strong category 4 at this time. Florida citizens have been warned this storm is not one to just wait out. The damage and lives lost will be catastrophic. People have been evacuating Florida all week. It has been reported up to a 14 hour trip just to make it out of Florida at this time. Those who have nowhere to go are urged to properly prepare themselves. Hotels have been ordered to waive the no pets policy in hopes of reducing the number of pets lost in the storm as well. As scary as this all sounds another storm is reportedly on its way, and expected to cross paths with Irma. Our thoughts are with all those in the path of these storms.
Here at SERVPRO Zanesville/Cambridge we take pride in having a professional work place filled with trained technicians. When water damage occurs it saturates your floors, walls, and contents leaving excess moisture even after the source of the water has been fixed. In order to make sure your contents are fully dry and not sustainable to mold, and further damage due to moisture we have to monitor the moisture levels in your home. On surfaces such as wood you want to make sure the levels remain at at 15% saturation level or less. Other materials such as drywall, and concrete may require a lower or higher reading in order to pass our Dry Book standards. No matter the material or surface SERVPRO can get in there, and dry it fast and efficiently with ease.
When a storm hits it can be devastating. It is Hurricane season so it is important to be prepared. You may not think it is necessary because in Ohio we are lucky enough to only experience a mild portion of these big storms. This however is untrue. We can still experience, hind wind, lighting, and an abundance of rain. These things can cause damage. Excessive rain can lead to unwanted water build up, flooding, and much more. Winds can knock down branches, and cause damage to your roof, windows etc. These storm can lead to power outages that can last several days. make sure you have plenty of water stored, and an alternative source of power if possible.During these times it is important to know SERVPRO is here to help.
