Water it Should Be on Your Mind!
Water loss is one of our main services we provide. Often times we come into homes that have experienced water damage and it is way worse than it should have been. That is why it is important to always be prepared.
- Check your plumbing regularly for leaks, and clogs.
- Make sure your appliances are properly connected at their water lines.
- Do routine checks in "moist' areas such as your basement.
- If you see moisture. GET IT DRY!
The excess moisture not only leads to damaged homes, but also can cause mold.A typical water loss can cost the home owner anywhere between $1500 and $5000 depending on the size of the affected area and how much can be restored as to replaced. The faster you catch a problem. The less damage you will have.Just always be aware because water can end up in anyone's home!
Fire Safety Month is Here!!
Fire safety month is a great time of year to educate those on what to do if you experience a fire.
When you hear your smoke detector go off, or realize you have a fire. It is important not to panic. You need to exit the building as quickly as possible closing all doors, and windows on your way out if possible. Always, check for heat before opening any closed doors. You do this by placing the palm of your hand on the door. It is also very important to stay as low to the ground as you can, because smoke rises, and smoke inhalation can be fatal. After vacating the building immediately call 911 so they can send your local Fire Department. If you are unable to get out there are things you can do to spare time while waiting to be rescued. Stay low of course, and get a wet blanket if at all possible to put over you. This helps prevent smoke inhalation. Always stay in one spot in an open area if so the Fireman can find you. If you hear them calling for you make sure you make noise. If the smoke is not thick you can yell, but it is better to make other noises. You can bang on the wall, or floor, even blow a whistle if you have one. Try to wait by the nearest window, and leave all door ways clear. This is so the fireman get to you without anyone getting injured. After, the fire is over. it may seem like all is lost, but this is where SERVPRO can help. We specialize is fire restoration, and are trained to help you in your time of need.

When a water damage occurs everyone looks for, and expects there to be mold growth. However, it does not take a water leak for mold to occur. Any moist area can eventually produce mold. So what can you do to prevent that unwanted growth? To start it is important to keep your home properly ventilated to reduce moisture, and to consistently check high humidity areas for musty smells or visible mold. You can run a home grade dehumidifier to help prevent this.Mold can hide under your carpets, in your windows, or pretty much any other area that is not often checked. Always remember though, if you do find a hidden mold patch to give us a call. We can help, and are always waiting to do so.
What Do We Do About Water?
When our technicians are called to a water damage job they know what to expect. We bring all the equipment necessary to get the job done. We first go in and assess the situation. Usually we already have what we need on board. If there is standing water we extract it. Then of course we spray a anti-microbial to prevent mold growth. After this is done thee drying process begins. We set up our drying equipment which consists of air movers, and dehumidifiers. We then go in daily, and monitor the drying progress. We shortly know if a material is going to be able to be restored of if it will need replaced. Our fast system, and excellent techs save both you and you insurance company money by getting the job done fast!
Soot All Around
A fire can cause major damage to your home. That damage varies depending on the temperature of the fire, and what kind of material is being burn't. We can clean it all. Wet or dry soot natural burnt fibers or synthetic. We have the solution for the job. We usually use Wall and All rinse or another wet solution for heavy wet soot. This allows us to not only clean , but deodorize walls and other surfaces. So what do we do with dry soot, and walls that can't be wet? We use a DRY SPONGE. This sponge is magical and can clean and hold in soot from dry surfaces such as ceiling and latex painted walls. It allows our technicians to clean any surface any time!
