Dealing with broken supply lines in your home

Water Damage Dealing with broken supply lines in your home If you have any questions, call us at 678-432-3003

Even though we are far from the ocean here in Henry County, that doesn’t mean we don’t deal with a fair amount of flooding in the area. Believe it or not most of the flooding calls we get come from broken supply lines in the home.

Supply lines are those thin hoses that run to the different appliances like refrigerators, dish washers, toilets, water heaters, washing machines, 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.

Swift bursts and slow drips can cause a considerable amount of damage which require flood mitigation and sometimes mold remediation. If you haven’t checked your supply lines in a while, now would be a good time to walk around your home and do so.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call today- 678-432-3003. SERVPRO of Henry & Spalding Counties provides 24 hour fire and water damage restoration services

  • Make sure your tenants know where they should go within the building in case of an emergency.
  • Invest in a Weather Radio. You can purchase one for as little as $25.00 online
  • Have a comprehensive Emergency Plan in place. If you don’t have one already and would like to create one, call us today to set up a meeting to talk about our complimentary ERP (Emergency Ready Profile) App. You can quickly access all your emergency contacts through any device or online.

Mold Remediation How to Safely Deal with Mold in your Home If You See Signs of Mold, Call Us Today – 678-432-3003

The most important thing to do if you see visible mold is to not disturb it. By trying to wipe it away you can unintentionally spread the mold incursion throughout your home. By disturbing the mold, you can release microscopic mold spores that become airborne and can spread inside your house.

Things you can do:

  • If possible, stay out of affected rooms.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and any fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Henry and Spalding Counties for mold remediation services.

Things you shouldn’t do:

  • Don’t touch the mold.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don’t attempt to dry or wipe the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.

Storm Damage How to Deal with Storm Damage in Your Home Have Storm or Flood Damage? Call Us Today 678-432-3003

Mother Nature to cause extensive and expensive damage to your home or business. It’s been such a rainy season in Georgia that it doesn’t take much to bring trees and powerlines down.

Here are a few tips to prevent storm damage to your property

  • CLEAN THE GUTTERS (preferably twice a year, but definitely in the fall). It doesn’t take a lot of dead leaves and branches to clog downspouts.
  • Check your roof for loose or missing shingles. If you see that your roof is damaged, repair it immediately. It is much cheaper to replace missing shingles than wait and be forced to repair your ceilings, walls, and deal with mold due to poor maintenance.
  • Walk around your yard and inspect trees- If you are not sure if a tree needs to come down, call a tree expert
  • If you have any questions about your coverage, call your insurance agency.

Let SERVPRO of Henry & Spalding County keep your home safe from storm and water damage. Our crews are highly trained and we use specialized equipment to restore your property to its pre-storm condition.

Appliances and Water Damage

Water Damage Appliances and Water Damage Call SERVPRO of Henry and Spalding Counties today at 678-432-3003

Any of your appliances connected to a water line could potentially cause water damage. One of the most frequent problems that we see is water damage from a leaky refrigerator. Unlike other types of water damage, this can happen over a long period of time without the homeowner noticing it, since the damage is hidden under and behind the fridge.

If you have the ice maker connected to the water line, make sure the line fittings are secured. Check water valves and defrost drains for leaks or cracks.  If the fridge has a clogged defrost drain, the water will leak into the lower compartment of your fridge and run onto the floor. Condensation could be another reason why water is pooling around the fridge, since it can run down the walls and into the floor. The best way to avoid dealing with water damage cause by your fridge is to regularly check and maintain the appliance.

Don’t let a water loss turn into a contaminated loss

Commercial Don’t let a water loss turn into a contaminated loss Call Us Today – We’re Ready To Help 678-432-3003

During the summer, if your business experiences a water loss where the power is shut off, the high temperatures and high humidity can cause microbes to grow much faster than one would think possible. We don’t like to think about it, but microbes are everywhere, and they can grow everywhere in your facility (wood, paper, drywall, insulation, carpet, etc.) These microbes become airborne and spread to other clean areas and create cross-contamination.

They key is to act fast to prevent a water loss job to grow into a contaminated loss.  If it is possible, and safe to do so, start extracting the water and get power restored as soon as possible. Decrease the temperature and moisture in the building. If possible try to keep humidity below 60 percent.

You need a company that is qualified to avoid microbe growth. Here at SERVPRO of Henry & Spalding Counties, we are focused on reducing business interruption, reducing claims cost and minimizing callbacks. Our crews are highly trained restoration professionals that use specialized equipment and techniques to properly remediate the problem quickly and safely.

How to remove mold from carpet

8/3/2018 (Permalink)

If you think you have mold in your carpet, you need to determine if what you see is really mold. Although test kits are available to purchase in many big box home improvement stores, understanding what a test result means requires the help of an expert. Therefore an Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) should be contacted to inspect and test the suspected mold to determine the extent of the damage and what course of action needs to be taken.  

After the IEP gets the test results, they can advise you on the extent of the mold problem, the toxicity of the mold, and whether you can handle yourself or hire a certified remediator. If you choose to do it yourself, be smart and make sure you use adequate protection, because the most important thing is your health. Wear a respirator, gloves, goggles, etc.

If you are dealing with a bigger problem and need help, call SERVPRO of Henry & Spalding Counties today at 678-432-3003
