Water flows through a variety of places in your home. There are several ways unexpected sources of water can result in damage.

Water flows through a variety of places in your home. There are several ways unexpected sources of water can result in damage. Should you find yourself victim to water damage, SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties offers 24-hour emergency services.

Unexpected sources of water can include…

  • The ice maker on your refrigerator. The line that supplies the water for your ice maker is usually behind your refrigerator. This line can easily become loose or damaged, resulting in water pooling underneath your fridge.
  • Damaged gutters. If the gutters are not doing their job properly, it will lead to water flooding. This then results in your roof, fascia, and fascia being at risk of weakening or rotting over time.
  • Leaking or condensation on pipes. When the water flowing through your pipes is significantly warmer/cooler than the temperature of your home, it can cause condensation on the pipes. Pipes can also come loose, causing them to spring a leak.

No matter where your water comes from, SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties can clean up the mess the water makes. We are faster to any disaster and can make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at 765-575-8654 if disaster strikes in your home!

Leave Water Cleanup to the Professionals

Leave Water Clean Up to the Professionals Water damage in a home can lead to bigger disasters that involve electric, sewage, and even mold.

When water damage occurs in your home, the first instinct is to clean up the mess. While it is important to take care of the damage, it is not always something you should do yourself. Water damage in a home can lead to bigger disasters that involve electric, sewage, and even mold. 

Due to every water damage situation being unique, SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties has tailored solutions for each specific condition.

Electrical damage: Determining the degree of damage is the most important step when it relates to electrical damage. Figuring out if the items were completely submerged underwater, or just wet from rainfall can differentiate whether it is salvageable or not. It is important to not touch electrical items following water damage because you could harm yourself or others.

Sewage: Water that contains sewage is very dangerous because it is unsanitary and may contain bacteria and viruses. SERVPRO will inspect the contaminated water to determine what type of water it is- clean, gray, or black. After determining the type of water, SERVPRO’s highly trained technicians will extract the water and restore the damage.

Mold: It is vital to not let mold go untreated in your home. Mold can spread in as little as 48 hours, producing allergens and irritants along the way. It is important to not try to clean mold yourself, as health effects can occur from the spores. SERVPRO technicians receive regular training and have the most up-to-date certifications on understanding and cleaning mold.

Should you find yourself dealing with water damage, reach out to SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties. The SERVPRO team is highly trained to handle situations like water damage, so your home will look, “Like it never even happened.”

Leaking Sink Causing Water Damage in Your Home What are Signs of Water Damage in Your Home?

Water damage can occur to your home during any season. During the warmer months, however, it can be more serious because it can begin to grow mold. The biggest problem with water damage in your home is that you cannot normally see the extent of the damage. Most water damage begins deep in the walls of your home and can lead to structural damage and health problems if not taken care of quickly.

Some types of mold can cause serious, even lethal, health problems. Not only is mold very dangerous to your health, but it can become costly to fix. It is important that you are able to recognize the signs of water damage so you can treat it before it gets too serious.

Signs that your home has water damage:

  • Wet spots, drips, or puddles around pipes, sinks, toilets, taps, etc.
  • Dark or wet spots on the ceiling or walls.
  • Drywall that is flaking or cracking.
  • A sudden increase in utility bills, resulting from a hidden leak.
  • A damp, musty, or moldy smell that suddenly appears.

If you begin to notice any of these signs, reach out to SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties. We are faster to any size disaster and guarantee to clean up the water damage and make it “Like it never even happened.”

Tips to Avoid a House Fire

Tips to Avoid a House Fire Here are other tips to help you avoid a house fire.

A house fire is a disaster no homeowner wants to fall victim to. People will remind you to blow out candles, unplug curling irons, and keep heaters in an open area. However, there are other tips to avoiding house fires you might not think about!

  • Keep your dryer’s lint trap clean and free of built-up lint. The dryer can get so hot while cycling that the built-up lint will catch fire. After each dryer cycle, clean out the lint trap before beginning a new cycle.
  • Turn off heated blankets/mattress pads. During the colder months it’s nice to have a heated blanket/mattress pad on your bed. Before you begin your day, be sure to turn all “heated items” off. These items are liable to overheat and catch your bed on fire.
  • Unplug unnecessary items from extension cords. Having too many items plugged into an extension cord can lead to overloading the circuit- which can result in the cord sparking a fire.

Following these tips will aid in reducing the possibility of having a house fire in your home. Accidents can happen at any time, however. If you find yourself in a situation that involves a house fire, give SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties a call at 765-575-8654. We’ll make it, “Like it never even happened.”
