Clean Homes Sell Faster!

10/22/2020 (Permalink)

It is common knowledge that cleaner homes sell faster than ones that look like they need a good scrubbing. Potential buyers would probably prefer to purchase a cleaner house, especially if they'd like to move in sooner rather than later.

But, it is not common that all homes are maintained at the highest of standards; there could be years worth of dust, mold, and other contaminants around the home that could have never been cleaned by the homeowner. 

While keeping a cleaner home could increase its market value — and could reduce your list-to-sale conversion times — you should try to maintain a cleaner home for your health.

SERVPRO can assist you with all of your home cleaning needs; we have a variety of services that could help your home become anew!

- Carpet, Upholstery, Drapery, and Blind Cleaning

- Ceiling, Wall, and Hard Floor Cleaning

- Deodorization

- Duct and HVAC Cleaning

- Mold Mitigation and Remediation

If you need any of the above services, call us today!

Water Outside Could Mean Water Within!

10/21/2020 (Permalink)

As a property owner during massive storms or reckless, natural events, one of the main concerns we hear often is the water damage that seems to be inevitable. As it rains buckets outside, you may be wondering the harm that is damaging the foundation and contents within.

When water finds its way inside, it can do so with a vengeance; it will soak your belongings, seep within the floors and walls, damage keepsakes, and could quite possibly cause mold in certain areas if left untouched.

If any of the above occurs, or even spills on much smaller scales, water damage and the potential mold infestation afterwards could ultimately sideline your business.

Do not take water spills or floods lightly — you can leave yourself open to further damage if things go sour! Call in your local SERVPRO to handle all of your water loss and damage needs!

Fire Sprinklers: Facts For Your Business

10/20/2020 (Permalink)

Fire departments typically use 10 times as much as water as a fire sprinkler would use to contain a fire. Often, the water damage from putting out these fires cause even more wreckage than the flames; that is why it is always important to take the necessary precautions to avoid fires from getting out of hand.

Fire sprinklers are also environmentally friendly; they can reduce the amount of water run-off and pollution, decreasing the amount of fire damage by up to 71%, as well as lowering water usage to fight a home fire by as much as 91%. All of which saves money, limits damages, and is better for the environment!

Furthermore, a home fire sprinkler system is easy to maintain; just inspect your home to make sure the sprinklers are not blocked by something that would prevent the water from coming out, such as paint, and be sure the main control valve is never turned off.

Home fire sprinklers are effective in cold and warm climates; being that is the case, there are certain guidelines that have been created for the proper installation of systems to avoid pipes freezing. Additionally, home fire sprinkler systems should be winterized around the same time as you would winterize a domestic water supply.

Thunderstorm Facts - Does Rain Kill Thunderstorms?

10/17/2020 (Permalink)

Rain is essentially the killer of some thunderstorms, especially since it is almost inevitable that each thunderstorm will produce copious amounts of precipitation. How is that possible, you ask?

It starts with updrafts, which are columns of warm air that aid the formation of thunderstorms. On top of these updrafts, surrounded by the storm’s clouds, are huge bundles of raindrops that are being formed before they spill out.

The raindrops, according to Dennis Mersereau from Mentalfloss.com, drags cooler air toward the ground, causing a downdraft. “The falling rain causes a downdraft, which is that cool breeze you feel before and during a storm.” Mersereau also states, “most downdrafts are pretty weak, but some are strong enough to cause damaging winds at the surface.”

This is why rain essentially kills the storms; once the downdraft cuts off the flow of warm air to the updraft, the thunderstorm is no longer able to progressively move and grow, causing the storm to rain out.
