Planning for Storms With the Kids | SERVPRO of Houston County

5/15/2024 (Permalink)

family watching lightning storm from inside home with candles due to power outage When the storm has passed, call SERVPRO of Houston County to help you recover.

The sky has started getting dark, your dog is hiding behind the couch and the kids are anxiously asking a million questions about storms rolling into town. In the chaos that severe weather can sometimes bring, it can be hard to know how to keep your home and your family safe.

While our Georgia home typically has mild temperatures, we can see some pretty intense thunderstorms, tornadoes and even the remains of coastal storms. We may not have a whole lot of control over the weather in our area, but we can control how we respond to it.

When you have a plan, you can maintain your own calm while helping your family keep their cool as well.

Knowing What to Look For

You and your kiddos may know that dark clouds mean a storm is on the horizon, but it is important to make sure you all know how to respond when you see those dark clouds. Take a day outside with the family to talk about clouds. Make sure your children understand that clouds may be fast moving, slightly green in color or even rotating. They need to know that if they see these early warning signs of a storm it is time to find shelter quickly.

Along with getting to know what storms can look like, they also need to know what they can sound like. This means understanding they should never ignore thunder. Lightning can strike before or after a storm, so it’s important to move to a safe place right away and stay there until it has been at least 30 minutes without hearing thunder.

Your family also needs to know what warning sirens and other weather alerts sound like. If you can hear tornado sirens from your house, make sure your kids listen in the next time they are tested. Let them hear what your weather radio sounds like as well when an alert is issued. The more aware of storm safety your whole family is, the faster you can get to safety.

Preparing for the Event

Once you have ensured everyone better understands the sights and sounds of potential strong storms, create an emergency plan with your family. This should include a safe place to go when a warning is issued and talking through what supplies are important to have.

A room without windows on the lowest level of your home is ideal for riding out severe weather. Walk your kids to the space you plan to use, and let them put some blankets, coloring books or other comfort items there to make it more comfortable. If it is a space you can spend time in, playing there can be another way to make everyone feel more calm when you need it for shelter.

Spend time putting together an emergency kit when you create your plans. This should include flashlights, batteries and first-aid supplies, but let the kids choose some fun items to toss in. Shelf-stable snacks are a great addition, along with card games or other activities that don’t require any power.

Getting your kids their own flashlight to use can be another way to help them feel safe and important. This can be a grab-and-go item—something they keep near their beds and can use to safely navigate a dark house. When storm watches are issued, make sure these flashlights are ready, along with plenty of water, prescription medications and a pair of shoes for each family member.

Keeping Calm

Weather anxiety is a common concern, which means nerves are completely normal when the weather is getting rough, especially for children. It’s important for all of us to understand that extreme damage during a weather event is not terribly common. Most homes will only see damage to their roof, siding and yard.

Let your kids know they are safe, and do your best to keep them distracted in order to get through the event as calmly as possible. With a plan, you can make fast decisions and protect your loved ones. Talk with your family soon and handle every storm that comes our way with complete confidence.

Storm damage should always be addressed quickly. Contact SERVPRO® day or night for the restoration services you need.

Water Leaks Stink | SERVPRO of Houston County

5/1/2024 (Permalink)

water dripping from ceiling into a large puddle on tile floor Trust our team at SERVPRO of Houston County to provide comprehensive services for a full recovery for all your water damage restoration needs.

You get home from work, ready to relax for the evening, only to find that the refrigerator has started to leak and left the kitchen floor soaked. Or perhaps you just stepped out for a quick trip to the store and an unexpected heavy rain left the wall near an open window drenched.

Regardless of where it comes from, water leaks are often far more complicated than they appear. Damage will typically run deeper than what a mop and bucket can clean up.

Mold, mildew and some pretty yucky odors can’t be ruled out after a leak. The faster you can call in the experts after a leak, the less dealing with a water leak will stink.

Addressing Water Leaks

Water has a sneaky way of getting into all the places you don’t want it to be. When it does, it can cause total chaos in your floors, walls and ceiling. Water moves fast, which means it can quickly find its way into every crack and cranny nearby, leaving moisture in all kinds of places that are hard to reach.

When you discover a water leak in your home, follow your first instinct to immediately start drying things up. While you do, pay careful attention to other places water may have gotten into. Moisture that sneaks behind walls or under floors won’t just dry up on its own. Instead, it will linger and start creating more and more damage.

Eventually, metal support structures can rust and start to break down. Drywall and wood will soften, and mold can form and spread. It doesn’t take long for a massive amount of mold to develop, which means when a leak strikes in your home and you can’t get to it quickly you are going to have to deal with water and mold damage.

Following Your Nose

While there are lots of signs that mold is growing in your home, one that everyone is familiar with is the odor. A damp, earthy and musty smell is a clear indicator that something is going on in your home, especially if you start noticing it after you have cleaned up a leak. Do your best to sniff out the source and call in the pros.

When we get there, we will address the water damage from the leak, the subsequent mold growth and any odors that are starting to build up in your home. Our professionals will replace warped walls and soft floorboards while we also start sanitizing surfaces and filtering the air throughout your home.

The restoration of your home isn’t complete until there are no lingering odors and the potential for mold to grow back is gone. In order to make sure your house is ready to be your home again, we will make sure the leak area and beyond are completely clean. Our crew has your needs covered.

Don’t ignore signs of a water leak. Contact SERVPRO for a full recovery.

team of servpro workers unloading a branded work van and entering a business for a commercial job SERVPRO of Houston County is Here to Help® with your business' disaster recovery!

Dealing with a disaster can leave your head spinning. There is so much to think through, but your first priority will almost always be ensuring the safety of your family and loved ones.

As you start to really sift through everything that has happened, your concerns for loved ones will likely shift to wondering what kind of damage has been done to your home. Thinking about starting an insurance claim may be far from your mind initially, but the sooner you can start your recovery process, the easier things will be.

Our professionals are ready to respond to your home around the clock, no matter what has happened. We will make sure everything is completed thoroughly and smoothly—even your insurance claim.

Start Fast, Document Often

In every kind of disaster, the faster you can respond, the better. When you can react quickly after a flood, fire or storm, you can mitigate your losses and stop damage from compounding and getting worse. Safety should always be your first priority, though. Stay in a safe place until officials have declared it safe. When you do start to move about, avoid power lines that are down, hot spots from a fire or floodwaters nearby.

First and foremost, make sure your loved ones and neighbors aren’t in need of immediate emergency assistance. When you know that everyone is as OK as they can be, call our SERVPRO® office. We will start putting together your recovery plan as we gather a team and the equipment they will need in order to meet the unique needs of your situation.

As you walk your property, take as many photos as you can. When it comes to insurance claims, the more you can document what has happened, the easier things will be. If you need to correct some damage right away—like water freely flowing from a faucet—do so, but make sure to take note of everything you are doing.

Leave It to Our Team

When a team from our office gets to your home, they will tackle any emergent needs first. This might include tarping your roof or sealing off broken windows in order to prevent future damage. At the same time, we will start working with you to procure any other documentation that may be needed for your insurance claim. Our professionals aren’t just trained to fix damage, they are also up to date on insurance standards and requirements.

While they work, our crew will put together an itemized list of all your losses. We will also take additional photos in order to make the claims process smooth and successful. We come with certifications on meeting insurance inspection standards so that work is completed exactly as it should be. We also make it a goal to restore rather than replace your belongings so that your recovery costs are lower.

Putting your recovery into the hands of our team means your home will be put back together quickly. We will handle everything, including making sure your insurance claim is as simple as possible. It only takes a single call to get life back on track fast, no matter what happens.

When a disaster strikes, call us to make your recovery process—insurance claims and all—simple.

Keeping Flood Prevention Basic | SERVPRO of Houston County

When you want to do something well, you need to start with the basics. If you have kids who bring home homework, this is a fact that you know well. Helping with math homework will always go better when you start with the basics.

Starting with the basics is also a good way to prepare and protect your home from potential disasters. We may not be able to control Mother Nature, but when we prepare for her wrath, we can come through anything she sends our way with far less damage.

Floods are one of the top ways that homes are damaged all across the nation and throughout the year—which makes preparing for them crucial.

Know Your Zone

Flooding happens in a great variety of ways, and not all of them come directly from nature. Manmade disasters, such as appliance failures, can certainly be incredibly detrimental to your home, but they are often easier to control than a natural disaster. While our community is fairly inland, it isn’t uncommon to see heavy rains and tropical storms that can cause flash flooding, roof leaks, and ponding water.

With so many risks being common to our area, getting to know where your home lies on a flood plain can be a helpful way to better understand how to stay protected.

Along with understanding your flood zone, take the time to get to know your yard well. If you have an area of your yard that stays wet even with a small amount of rain, it could be helpful to add organic materials or a rain garden to pull water down into the soil and prevent puddles. Lengthening your drainage spouts could be another helpful way to prevent water from getting in your home.

If your home or community has a lot of trees, covering your gutters is a good way to prevent blockages year-round. Checking your roof on a regular basis will also help ensure water never gets trapped and leaks through your home. Check it twice a year and after heavy winds for damage.

Prepare to Prevent

The more you can understand the area around you, the better you can protect yourself—but there are a few more actions you can take to keep your home safe from flooding. Simple home maintenance inside and out will go a long way in preventing water damage.

Start in your yard by ensuring you have a gentle slope away from your house. Be sure to fill in any spots that wash out over time so that puddles can’t form near the foundation. Taking your gutter downspouts underground can not only protect them when a hurricane pushes inward, but it will also ensure water doesn’t have the opportunity to get into your home.

Inside, work from your basement up and ensure everything is well-sealed. If you have a basement, check regularly for signs of gaps or cracks and have it professionally sealed when they become visible. If you don’t have one already, add a sump pump to keep things dry. Replace caulking around your windows and doors throughout your home seasonally as it begins to age.

Preventing and preparing your home for flooding can be simple when you take things back to the basics. Put these items on your to-do list to give the home you love the best care possible. It will keep you safe, and it is much easier than teaching your children division.

Dealing With Stinky Sewage | SERVPRO of Houston County

3/15/2024 (Permalink)

sewage water pooling on a kitchen floor after a leak SERVPRO of Houston County is Here to Help® when a biohazard incident strikes your home or business.

When it comes to cleaning up messes, there are few things that could be worse than dealing with sewage. A sewage leak might not be the most destructive thing that could happen to your home or office, but it will likely be one of the hardest disasters to live through.

Sewage leaks are actually pretty common, and they can strike at any time with little warning. Fortunately, when you know how to quickly respond, things can be handled quickly and efficiently so you can get back to life as normal fast.

What to Do First

When sewage pipes become clogged or develop any kind of blockage, wastewater will begin to flow the wrong way and find its way out through your sinks, tubs and showers. Sewage leaks can also start if damage has been done to the pipes or water lines in the system.

Wherever it comes from, the first thing you need to know is to stay away. When water starts to flood or leak, it is classed into three different kinds of water. This includes white water, gray water and black water. White water and gray water come from sources that are considered non-toxic, but black water is a hazardous material. Sewage is classed in the black water category and can carry harmful bacteria, viruses and other microbes.

Don’t touch the water or sewage. Turn the water off to your home or office using the water shutoff valve. Open any windows around the area, and turn on some fans to help eliminate fumes. If you are at the office, let customers and other staff members know so they can stay away. At home, block the area off to keep pets or children safe from harm.

Where SERVPRO® Comes In

Our team is highly trained in a number of biohazard situations and ready to respond around the clock. The moment you call us, your recovery begins. We will gather as much information as possible while we also start putting together a team and the tools to get things cleaned up safely and efficiently.

While you are waiting for our team to arrive, try to take some photos using the zoom on your camera. These obviously aren’t going to be your favorite keepsakes, but the more images you can get, the easier insurance claims will be. The pictures can also help us identify the cause of the sewage leak in order to properly repair it and prevent further incidents.

As soon as the team arrives, we will start removing sewage and standing water from your space. We will also work to find and correct the cause of the leak. While we work, it is important to remember that sewage is considered toxic, and at this point, the best thing you can do is stay away.

Throughout the process, our technicians will be deep-cleaning, sanitizing and ensuring that physical damage is fixed. We will address odor issues, and take every measure we can to eliminate lingering smells. Our job is only complete when your space is completely safe and back to exactly as it should be.

If a sewage leak affects your space, stay back and call us. We will get things taken care of safely and quickly so you can get back to living.

Sewage leaks should always be cleaned up by professionals. Call SERVPRO, and we will take care of you.

Preparing for Spring Storms | SERVPRO of Houston County

3/1/2024 (Permalink)

heavy rain pouring down on an outdoor metal roof in a storm Let SERVPRO of Houston County help you get from April showers to May flowers.

Spring has finally come back around, which means new flowers, greener grass and plenty of spring storms. Here in our part of Georgia, spring can bring anything from frost to tornadoes and heavy thunderstorms.

As spring stretches along and temperatures start to feel more and more like summer, storms can often become intense. With such a wide variety of weather possible during this season, it is crucial that we all prepare ourselves for anything.

In order to be prepared, you need to have a reliable way to receive weather notifications and updates. There are lots of options that can help you keep your family safe.

The Power of the Internet

For many of us, screens and phones are an integrated part of our day and never very far away from our hands. That makes receiving notifications on your cell phone a great way to stay safe. There are Wireless Emergency Alerts that come through automatically for a variety of situations, but you can also sign up for a number of apps that can keep you up to date.

When you choose an app to receive notifications from, stick to well-known names or local sources. Many radio and news stations have their own apps that can notify you not just when the weather is severe, but when your town is facing any other kind of events. Make sure you sign up for alerts from the city as well, which can also keep you informed about road closures or other emergencies.

If severe weather is predicted to be heading your way, don’t rely on alerts alone. Keep an eye on the news so that you are not only aware of how Mother Nature is feeling, but also staying informed about evacuation orders and shelter openings.

Non-Electronic Options

We may love our screens and the ways they can keep us connected, but electronics all have a battery that will eventually wear out. It’s not uncommon for storms to knock out power long-term, so it is crucial to have another way to receive alerts and news updates.

If you live close enough to hear weather sirens at home, get to know the different alarms so that you can respond appropriately. Invest in an NOAA weather radio as well. These are often powered with a hand-crank or solar power and can last for several hours. They are also portable, which means even if you are sheltering or evacuating, you can stay informed.

Having multiple ways to receive weather alerts can save your life—but it doesn’t mean you won’t end up dealing with some damage to your home after an event rolls through. Call us the moment you discover damage, and we can start your recovery around the clock. We will get things put back together so you can get back to living like normal.

Serious storms can cause serious property damage. Call SERVPRO® 247 for immediate restoration assistance.

Disasters and Your Business: How to Recover Fast | SERVPRO of Houston County

2/15/2024 (Permalink)

business man in office talking to female SERVPRO rep SERVPRO of Houston County is here for your business every step of the way, from ERPs to disaster recovery.

Disasters can leave behind damage that affect your home, your community and your business in a matter of minutes. After a disaster strikes, you can be left wondering how to take a single step forward.

Putting your home back together is crucial after a disaster, but when you own a small business, getting back to work is likely just as crucial. Fortunately, by making a plan and keeping our SERVPRO of Houston County number programmed in your phone, you can put your life back together fast.

Prepare Ahead of Time

In order to recover quickly, you need to prepare ahead of a time. With an emergency plan, you and your employees can quickly prepare before and respond after a flood, fire or storm strikes in order to keep work moving forward.

One of the most crucial parts of an emergency plan is communication. Your team should be so well-versed in your disaster response that they move seamlessly through the steps. Make your plan a part of regular training to ensure it is always fresh on everyone’s mind.

Every few months, spend time walking through your building and pointing out where water shut-offs are. Take note of fire extinguisher locations as well, and make sure your employees know how to use them. Walk exit routes and ensure they are well-labeled so that quick escapes can be made when needed.

After a disaster strikes, make sure your staff knows how to get back to work. If you will be working remotely, check equipment and secured networks before the event occurs. If you have an alternate location to work from, make sure everyone knows when and how they are expected to report to work.

Consider how you will communicate with your team, and keep in mind that some networks may go down long-term. Using multiple forms of communication is the best way to keep up with everyone.

Recover Quickly

By creating a plan and preparing ahead of disasters as much as possible, you can rest a little easier knowing that the road to recovery is already laid out for you. Call SERVPRO® as soon as you can safely do so, and we will start your restoration right away.

As our professional team starts tackling rebuilding, drying out or any other recovery efforts your physical location needs, you can start sharing your story with your customers. Be transparent about what has happened, and keep them posted on the progress of your recovery. Use multiple platforms to make sure your message is heard by as many people as possible.

Throughout your recovery, it is important to keep an open mind. While our team works hard to get things back to normal, you may need to be flexible in how you move forward. Keep the big picture in mind but understand that this will be your new normal for a while. Scaling back or shifting how you operate will help you push forward in order to get back to the way things used to be.

Get through any disaster that strikes by planning ahead and practicing your plan often. Communicate often and frequently in order to keep everyone on the same page, and offer yourself a little grace as you walk through the process. You will be back to work in no time.

Has your business experienced a disaster, or do you want help building an emergency plan? Contact us to find everything you need.

A Team That Can Handle It All | SERVPRO of Houston County

2/1/2024 (Permalink)

heavy rain pounding down on a blacktop surface SERVPRO of Houston County is Here to Help® when any disaster strikes!

Sometimes the cliche “when it rains, it pours” holds all too true. A minor event can lead to more and more until you are dealing with a complete mess. This is particularly true when you consider damage left after a disaster strikes.

It doesn’t matter if it comes from Mother Nature or a manmade accident inside your home, damage almost always leads to more damage. That is why having a team that can handle everything like ours at SERVPRO® is crucial.

The Impact of Disasters

Disasters have an incredible impact on your home and your community. While sometimes you are given the opportunity to prepare as a storm heads your way, things can still change quickly for the worse. Manmade disasters that occur inside your house can be just as bad, especially when they strike without any kind of warning.

When rains get heavy around town, it can trigger flooding, which can leave parts of your home wet and cause mold to grow. High winds might knock over trees and put your house at risk or knock out power long-term. Fires in your home will leave behind smoke, soot, structural, water and odor damage.

The longer one kind of damage is allowed to hang out, the faster other kinds of damage will start to take over your home.

The physical toll isn’t the only thing you will have to worry about, either. The mental toll that living through any disaster, large or small, can take can be incredibly devastating. That makes fast, efficient restoration by an understanding team crucial.

A Single Team, Total Restoration

One of the most important parts of disaster recovery is timing. Disasters will never happen on your schedule, which is why we are available 247, 365 days a year. With one call, you can start your restoration the moment you need it. We will gather your information and get a crew headed to your property right away.

Our experts are certified and highly trained in every disaster scenario you can imagine. Our experience is local, too, because we are local. As a locally owned and operated small business, we are your neighbors. We love this community, and we have experienced the same disaster you have. We have cleaned homes and offices all around town.

If you have roof damage after a strong storm or high winds blow through, we can get to your home night or day to tarp it and protect against other damage. When a flood strikes, we will start to remove water right away while we also dry out your belongings in order to prevent potential mold growth and save your personal items.

Sometimes your home is damaged beyond repair, but we’ve got that covered as well. We can rebuild entire sections in order to make things feel like yours again. We want you to get back to normal life fast, and we will do whatever it takes to make that happen.

As a total restoration company, we stay with you until you are completely satisfied. If there are lingering odors after a fire or mold invasion, we will work to get things sealed and sanitized so that your house feels and smells like yours.

Toasty and Safe from Fires | SERVPRO of Houston County

1/16/2024 (Permalink)

brick chimney with lit fire logs Fire safety is a top priority for us at SERVPRO of Houston County this winter. Keep your home safe with these helpful tips!

The cozy season is more than here, which means wearing all the fuzzy clothes and spending as much time as possible under a blanket. There is nothing quite like curling up with a toasty fire gently burning in the fireplace.

Did you know that the number of house fires goes up considerably in the winter? Cozying up is great—when you do it safely. Fireplace, space heaters and other heating devices can leave our homes vulnerable to disasters when they are not handled with care.

Addressing Your Fireplace

There really isn’t anything that can quite compare to the sights and sounds of a fire on a cold night. While it may be a great way to relax, fireplaces are one of the more dangerous places in your home when they are not properly maintained. If you use wood in your fireplace, ash and other debris should be cleaned out after every use. Your chimney should be cleaned and inspected by a professional every year.

Never put anything that could catch fire near your fireplace, including mantle decorations. You should have smoke detectors and a carbon monoxide detector that is working well either in the room with your fireplace or right outside of it. If you have a gas or electric fireplace, check the connection point often to ensure nothing is leaking. Dust around your fireplace weekly, and it’s never a bad idea to keep a fire extinguisher close at hand when you do use your fireplace.

Space Heater Safety

Space heaters are a great way to warm a room, but they are another common source of house fires in the winter. Space heaters are responsible for nearly 1,700 house fires every year, most of them preventable.

Always run your space heater on a flat, even surface. Space heaters need room to work, so make sure they have a three foot radius around them. Always check the cord before plugging it in directly to the wall. Space heaters should never be plugged into an extension cord or power strip.

Teach your children and your pets to stay away from the space heater when it is operating. Even if the heat feels great directly on your feet, avoid putting the space heater too close to the couch, bed or curtains. Turn your space heater off at night—blankets are a much safer option for staying warm.

Suggested Safety Features for Your Space Heater

If your space heaters are more than five years old, you may want to consider upgrading them in order to get the best safety features. While all new space heaters that are available for purchase are going to come with some kind of safety features, there are a few things you want to look for before you choose to run one in your home.

Do a little research on the manufacturer to ensure they are both certified and reliable. The units should have been put through plenty of testing before being resold. Any space heater you use should have automatic shut off features that kick in when the unit has been running for a certain amount of time and when the unit is bumped or knocked over.

Cords on space heaters should be well-made and at least six feet in length. Since plugging into an extension cord or other electrical extender is a huge no-no with space heaters, make sure you are purchasing one with a long enough cord to meet your needs and run safely.

By giving a little love to your fireplace and running your space heaters safely, you can keep your home warm and toasty all season long. If you do have an incident, one phone call to SERVPRO of Houston County is all it will take to clean up smoke, soot and any other damages fast.

A quick fire damage restoration is just a phone call away. Call SERVPRO® for immediate assistance.

The Places That Leak | SERVPRO of Houston County

1/2/2024 (Permalink)

close up of condensation on window pane and ledge Water damage can happen anywhere in your home. Call SERVPRO of Houston County to restore water damage on your property 24/7, 365.

Can you count all the places in your home where water is used? Having instant access to water makes things a lot easier in our day to day. Whether you’re tossing a load of laundry in or hosing down the dog, we constantly rely on water.

Water may make things easier, but water can also create a total disruption of our lives when it ends up in the wrong place. Mother Nature can throw us for a loop or even just a small leak could end up costing us a whole lot.

When you know how to find leaks in your home, you can protect your home and prevent losses. And the good news is that all it takes to keep things protected is some easy home maintenance.

Under Your Sinks

The kitchen and the bathrooms are some of the top locations for leaks to happen in your home, and oftentimes, they can be tricky to find. Not only do most of us store more than we should under the sink, there can be multiple water lines coming and going. All of that can allow a tiny leak to drip for a while before you find it.

When a leak starts under your sink, it can quickly do damage in your cabinets, behind the wall and under your floor. Look under all of your sinks at least once a week, feeling all the water lines for moisture. Tighten connections, and replace any seals that are beginning to wear out quickly.

Beneath Appliances

Appliances make things a lot easier for us, but they are also susceptible to hidden leaks. Dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators with ice makers and water heaters can all leak from a hole the size of a pinhead, causing some serious damage.

Pull your appliances away from the walls they are near every few months. Look for signs of mold growth, excess moisture or water drops on the floor. Clean around them well, and feel any water lines you can reach. Just like when you check under your sinks, make sure connections are tight and replace anything that has shown signs of aging.

Behind Your Walls or Floors

One of the tricky things about leaks starting anywhere in your home is that they can move to other locations pretty quickly. Water can seep through cracks and holes, getting behind your walls or under your floors.

If you notice a musty odor or there is a new squeak in your floor, it is time to investigate the possibility of water damage.

Around Your Windows and Doors

When the temperatures swing up and down, condensation can form on your windows. Because this is so common, it can be easy to ignore. This condensation can linger and damage the very structure of your home.

Check around your windows and doors regularly by using your hands to feel for moisture. Look for cracks or gaps, and make sure everything is well-sealed. The changing seasons are a great time to give everything a fresh layer of caulk.

If you ever find water damage in your home, it shouldn’t make you panic. It only takes a single phone call to SERVPRO® to get things restored quickly. We are always available to handle a major flood or structural damage. It’s our goal to get your life back to normal fast.

Don’t ignore signs of water damage! Call SERVPRO for a quick restoration.
