Broken supply lines can be a major headache
SERVPRO of Henry & Spalding Counties is a phone call away...678-432-3003
Most people see that SERVPRO is a flood cleanup company and think, "I don't live by an ocean or pond or river so the chance of my house flooding is next to nothing."
What most people don't know is that most flooding calls we get come from broken supply lines. Supply lines are those thin hoses that run to appliances like refrigerators, dish washers, toilets, water heaters, clothes washers, etc. The quality and price of these hoses vary drastically. Most people opt for the least expensive option without knowing that cheap hoses need to be checked and replaced often. Sudden bursts and slow drips both can cause a substantial amount of damage which require flood mitigation and sometimes mold remediation. If you haven't checked you supply lines in a while, or ever, now would be a good time to do so.
We are available to provide estimates to any supply lines that may be of concern.
Flooding In Georgia
According to the World Economic Forum, “in the last 20 years, flooding has been the most common natural disaster by far, accounting for 43% of all recorded events.” We can completely understand this with all of the rain and floods we have been having in Georgia this summer! You wake up on a Saturday morning ready to relax by the pool or go to the lake after a busy week at the office, only to see the dark clouds glooming over you. You see the trees shaking from the gusts of wind blowing by and you hear the thunder in the distance. You hope that the storm will “blow over” quickly, but then it begins to pour. You watch as the water accumulates across your property and then, just like that, the water is now intruding into your home. Now are you not going to be able to spend your weekend outside enjoying a dip in the pool, but your basement has become your own personal swimming ground! Take the measures to prevent additional damage to your home or office, then call SERVPRO of Henry and Spalding Counties to properly take care of the damage that has already been done.

What Is Black Mold?
Don't let mold growth get out of control in your home. Give us a call at 678-432-3003!
According to the CDC Stachybotrys chartarum is a greenish-black mold more commonly known as “black mold” or “toxic mold.” This type of mold is known to grow on material that has a high cellulose and low nitrogen content, for example, fiberglass, gypsum board, paper, dust, and lint. Mold growth occurs when there is constant moisture exposure from water damage, excessive humidity, water leaks, condensation, or flooding.
Molds are very common in buildings and homes and will grow anywhere indoor where moisture is present, so you should be aware of this fact and be proactive in searching for potential mold growth. If any mold is found in your home or business it should be inspected and treated by a professional. You should be cautious around the infected area and be sure not to touch or disturb the mold.
If you need help dealing with a mold problem give SERVPRO of Henry and Spalding Counties a call.

According to The Weather Channel, Georgia is the U.S. state with the most tornadoes so far in 2017, setting a new state record of 102 tornadoes. With that in mind it is important to be knowledgeable and up to date on these facts about tornadoes.
Tornadoes are arguably nature's most violent storms. Generated from powerful thunderstorms, tornadoes generally appear as rotating, funnel-shaped clouds extending from the closed base to the ground. With winds that can reach up to 300 miles per hour, tornadoes can cause massive destruction within seconds. Damage paths can be in excess of one mile wide and fifty miles long.
- The average tornado moves southwest to northeast, but tornadoes have been known to move in any direction.
- The average forward speed of a tornado is 30 miles per hour, but may vary from stationary to 70 miles per hour.
- Tornadoes can accompany tropical storms and hurricanes as they move onto land.
- Tornadoes are most frequently reported east of the Rocky Mountains during spring and summer months.
- Tornadoes are most likely to occur between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m.

How to Prevent Water Damage
With a summer that has been full of so much rain, reports of water damage have been extremely high. Even though some water fiascos are completely unavoidable, there are some preventative measures you can take to help avoid water damage in your home and prevent costly repairs.
The Top 3 Ways to Prevent Water Damage
- Properly Storing Valuables
As mentioned above some storms and leaks you cannot predict, but the best way to prevent water from destroying your belongings is with proper storage. We recommend going through your home and storing your valuables such as photo albums, books, or old toys in plastic storage bins so they are safe from water!
- Seasonal Cleaning
Throughout the year, it’s tempting to throw unused items into the basement or garage. But when a big hurricane appears, you might not have time to clear these rooms out. To avoid potential water damage from ruining your items, clean before storm season approaches.
Properly functioning gutters are essential during storm season because they help guide water away from the home and foundation. Clogged gutters can spell disaster. Without anywhere to go, the water will backflow into your home, potentially causing significant water damage. Make it a priority to regularly clean gutters and have them professionally maintained throughout the year.
Make Sure You Are Keeping Your Commercial Air Ducts Clean!
If you are interested in getting your air ducts cleaned, give SERVPRO of Henry and Spalding Counties a call at 678-432-3003.
Many people or businesses tend to overlook certain aspects of their commercial buildings when they are going through their maintenance checklist. One thing that is often forgotten about is air duct cleaning, because cleaning an air duct system that is not showing any obvious problems can seem like an unnecessary expenditure of time and money. According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) the rule of thumb for consumers is that “if your air ducts look dirty, they probably are.” While you do not need to clean you air ducts every year, it is not something that you do not want to forget to maintain. Below are some benefits to cleaning your air ducts:
- Improved indoor air quality
- Greater HVAC system efficiency
- Longer HVAC component lifespan
- Air duct cleaning conserves energy
- Air duct cleaning will save you money in the long run
