Smoke Detector Battery Changing

Fires can be devastating if severe enough. Not only are priceless items lost but your sense of comfort and stability is also at risk. There are all kinds of ways to be cautious and extra safe. 

The number one thing in every home should be well maintained smoke detectors. On matters this serious you need to make sure that you are regularly testing them, changing the batteries, making sure they are working properly. You also need to make sure that you have the right number of smoke detectors. 

Other things like planning an escape route, a family meeting point, and knowing who to call after 911. Always remember that you can never plan too much. Being prepared is never a bad thing.

Reminder to Check Your Crawlspace

9/1/2020 (Permalink)

Crawlspace Discoloration from moisture in crawlspace

With storms headed our way this is just a friendly reminder to check places where you might get water. Checking your crawlspace regularly is a way to stay ahead of anything lurking where you least expect it. When water rises into the crawlspace and becomes trapped it is a gateway for mold into your home. Even though it may not seem like it, your crawlspace is still part of your home. It's like an attachment to your house. Neglecting your crawlspace is the equivalent to neglecting your basement. Checking your crawlspace once every few times may be enough but you never want to notice it long after the water or other problems have been there.

1. Noticeable discoloration from dampness

2.  Strong Moldy/Musty smell when entering the crawlspace

3. Abnormal rise in humidity in the crawlspace

Water Damage

8/3/2020 (Permalink)

A water damage restoration service is the kind of professional that no one wants to call, but when they are needed, it is important not to delay. Homeowners know that moisture is often the enemy, capable of penetrating into just about any space, and taking advantage of every little crack and structural problem. No matter how moisture gets into the building, the response should be the same. Bring in a certified firm as soon as possible to clean the home, dry it, and ensure there are no lingering health threats once the moisture is gone.

If water has entered the home through a contaminated source, don’t try to handle it on your own. Floods and sewage backflows contain a cocktail of deadly bacteria, viruses and fungi, and even momentary skin contact can leave a person seriously ill. A certified water damage restoration service not only has the tools to eliminate the moisture, they have the protective equipment to remain free from harm.

Restoration technicians have a lot of technology at their disposal. These include powerful vacuums and pumping systems, high volume air movers, dehumidifiers, heat injectors, moisture meters, and a number of detergents formulated for destroying fungi and other microbial threats. While the technicians work on the building, disposing of compromised materials, and drying the rest, they will also destroy all mold and microbial colonies. This is the only way to ensure a home is safe to live, and a business safe to work in; any other cleaning method is a dangerous gamble.

Sometimes it's best to let the professionals handle it.

This water damage photo from Bolingbrook, IL depicts trapped water in a drywall kitchen ceiling caused by water leaking from an upstairs bath. The elderly couple involved had the good sense to contact the professionals at SERVPRO of Woodridge/Bolingbrook to assist with the removal of this ceiling and drying of their home.

Attempting to remove this ceiling without weep holes to drain the water and excess weight could result in collapse and even injury.

Fortunately our technicians are well versed in safety procedures and were able to remove this ceiling without incident or injury.

SERVPRO takes special care when it comes to demo. Protection the floor and any items around the area.
