Water Damage Standing Water Can Cause Major Concerns This bathroom is being thoroughly dried with SERVPRO air movers and dehumidifiers.

Water leaks can create havoc within a home. After a water leak or spill, moisture is immediately absorbed into your drywall, floors and furnishings. Furthermore, standing water can be a big issue that can be tough to take care of, but what happens if there is water in your flooring or walls that you are not aware of? What will happen with this hidden water as it sits in your home or business? This is the water that will end up causing you the most damage. The first issue that comes to mind with hidden water is microbial growth, who wants mold and mildew growing in their home?  After you have any water damage to your home or business, you want SERVPRO of Madison County to immediately get to your home or business and check for any hidden water. This will save you time and money if these issues are found and fixed early rather than a few months. Don't let water sit in your walls or under your floors.

Our water remediation specialists are on call 24/7. Call us today at 601-353-2286 to check out any concerns.

Don't Go Chasing Busted Pipes

Water Damage Don't Go Chasing Busted Pipes Bathroom after a section of drywall was removed in order to speed up the drying process.

Water from a pipe burst can cause severe damage to a building if not taken care of immediately. As the water gushes from the fractured pipe it fills up the room. It travels from room to room, soaking the floors and baseboards and wicks up the drywall toward the ceiling. The sight of standing water can be an uneasy sight for some. Luckily, SERVPRO has the expertise and the capability to handle any size water damage. The 24/7 service team will respond to any size water damage with timeliness and professionalism. This particular homeowner was out of town when the loss occurred. The water sat in the house for days causing severe structural loss. SERVPRO’s technicians set up dehumidifiers and air movers to restore as much of the effected area as possible, and they removed parts of the walls and floors that were not restorable. This eliminated any microbial growth. The customer was pleased with how quickly SERVPRO was able to get the job done.

Mold: Part 2

How to prevent MOLD:
  • Keep humidity levels as low as you can—no higher than 50%–all day long. An air conditioner or dehumidifier will help you keep the level low. Bear in mind that humidity levels change over the course of a day with changes in the moisture in the air and the air temperature, so you will need to check the humidity levels more than once a day.
  • Use an air conditioner or a dehumidifier during humid months.
  • Be sure the home has adequate ventilation, including exhaust fans.
  • Add mold inhibitors to paints before application.
  • Clean bathrooms with mold killing products.
  • Do not carpet bathrooms and basements.
  • Remove or replace previously soaked carpets and upholstery.

How can people decrease mold exposure?

Sensitive individuals should avoid areas that are likely to have mold, such as compost piles, cut grass, and wooded areas. Inside homes, mold growth can be slowed by controlling humidity levels and ventilating showers and cooking areas. If there is mold growth in your home, you should clean up the mold and fix the water problem. Mold growth can be removed from hard surfaces with commercial products, such as the ones offered by SERVPRO of Madison County.  We are knowledgeable and ready to help you clean up your mold problem today.  Call us at 601-353-2286.  Always Here To Help!

SERVPRO Urges Madison Home and Business Owners to “Resolve to be Ready” in 2017

Local cleanup and restoration specialist shares no-cost emergency planning tools that enable fast and effective disaster response and recovery

Madison, MS (Grassroots Newswire) December 20, 2016 - With New Year’s Eve rapidly approaching, now is the perfect time to think about making some resolutions, according to Robby Hansbrough, owner of SERVPRO® of Madison County. While resolutions typically involve committing to personal changes and reaching goals, Hansbrough says the single most important resolution both business and home owners can make for 2017 is to “Resolve to be Ready.”

“Preparing in advance to deal with the unexpected can make a world of difference in how quickly and completely property owners can put the pieces of their lives back together,” says Hansbrough. “Emergency readiness plans are the foundation for effective and timely emergency response.” 

Hansbrough encourages all property owners to take advantage of the no-cost emergency planning tools available from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) (www.ready.gov/publications), as well as SERVPRO’s Emergency READY Profile and READY Plan Mobile App (http://ready.SERVPRO.com). 

For homeowners:

  • FEMA resources include guidelines for a creating a Family Emergency Plan and Emergency Supply List, with additional tips for pet owners, seniors, people with disabilities, and even commuters.
  • SERVPRO offers their free SERVPRO READY Plan app, which stores critical contact and property information electronically in advance, where it can be accessed with a mobile device in seconds if disaster strikes.

For business owners:

  • FEMA offers materials on topics ranging from creating a Business Continuity Plan to an Insurance Discussion Coverage Form in addition to guidelines for creating an Emergency Response Plan.
  • For businesses, SERVPRO offers a no-cost facility assessment and assistance in creating a comprehensive Emergency READY Profile® (ERP). The ERP includes information about emergency contact numbers, priority and high/risk areas, shut-off valve locations and more that can then be stored in the READY app.

“The time to gather and store information like emergency contact numbers; insurance contacts; and the location of fuse boxes, fire suppression system controls, and such is before an emergency strikes, not during an emergency,” says Hansbrough. “Having this information at your fingertips can help emergency responders react as quickly and effectively as possible, helping to limit loss of property and even lives.”

SERVPRO of Madison County specializes in disaster restoration, cleanup and repair services, helping to remediate damage, making it “Like it never even happened,” for both commercial and residential customers.
