Spring into Clean with SERVPRO of Monroe, Madison & Monticello!

3/30/2018 (Permalink)

It is time for spring cleaning!  SERVPRO of Monroe, Madison & Monticello is a phone call away from helping you in your home or business.  Listed are some helpful hints for spring cleaning from Readers Digest:

  • Make doormats welcoming- Clean them by shaking them and washing them if able. Doormats stop most dirt and debris from entering the home so keep them clean enough to function at peak efficiency.
  • Clean carpet and upholstery- Cleaning carpet and upholstery will get your furniture ready for another year of wear.
  • Finish your floors- Protect your floors by waxing or applying a sealer. These applications will add a protective buffer and could help them last longer.
  • Wash walls, cabinets, baseboards, and woodwork- Dust and debris collects around baseboards and clings to vertical surfaces. Use a sponge and mild cleaning solution to wash all surfaces.  Use two buckets:  one for the cleaning solution and another for wringing the sponge.
  • Vacuum with intelligence- Move the big items a little to the left or right, vacuum, and move the furniture back into place.
  • Clean ceiling fixtures- Remove dust and dirt from ceiling fans and air-conditioner vents with a cloth and vacuum with a soft nozzle attachment.

Water Damage Winter Isn't Over Yet Ready to help!

The groundhog has indeed seen its shadow, but more importantly, it’s only February. Spring may be just around the corner, but the possibility for freezing temperatures still exists. It’s important that you know how to keep your pipes from being damaged by the extreme cold.

            Remember to add insulation to pipes in your cabinets, attic, basement, and crawlspace. You should also drain water from swimming pools and water sprinkler supply lines. Additionally, make sure to close inside valves supplying outdoor hose bibs and keep the outside valves open.

Although pre-planning can go a long way toward keeping your home protected from the cold weather, oftentimes water damage is not preventable. If you do experience any water damage due to frozen pipes remember that SERVPRO is always here to help. Our technicians are on call 24 hours a day to assist with your water mitigation needs.

Mold in Monroe, Madison and Monticello, Georgia

10/12/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold in Monroe, Madison and Monticello, Georgia Mold can spread a home in as little as 48 hours!

Mold remediation has increased throughout Georgia. Energy-efficient buildings, faulty construction, increased plumbing, and public awareness are all reasons of why mold has threatened properties.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Rain Damage vs. Flood Damage

8/22/2017 (Permalink)

What is the difference between rain damage and flood damage to your home?

Rain damage is caused by falling water. A leaky roof or window can cause rain to intrude into your home. Gutters and downspouts can also be a large contributor to rain damage. It is important to clean your gutters and downspouts to keep the rain away from your walls and windows.

Flood damage is caused by rising water. Improper grading, failing drainage, or rising creek water are all examples of how flood damage can occur in your home. Flood damage can also cause cracks to your foundation allowing excess water to intrude into your home.

It is important to professionally dry the structure so as to prevent further damage. SERVPRO of Monroe, Madison & Monticello uses updated technology and professionalism to treat your home as it is ours. We want to help you restore your home “Like it never even happened”.
