  • Be prepared in case of loss of power
    • Get a generator to maintain power to your major appliances or for your furnace

SERVPRO Will Work Hard To Reclaim Your Home From Flood Damage.

Cleanup may seem difficult after floods strike your home in Spartanburg. Flood water removal is nearly impossible without the proper equipment, and water damage mitigation can be just as tough to handle. That is why it is best to contact professionals from SERVPRO who have plenty of experience dealing with these types of situations. 

How Can SERVPRO Dry My Home? 

SERVPRO has extensive experience dealing with flood damage in Spartanburg homes. Our teams arrived equipped with the right tools and training to dry your home. First, we can pump the water out of your home using truck-mounted wet vacs, portable wet vacs, or submersible pumps. Once the water is pumped out, we can use the following equipment to finish the drying process: 

Air movers to dry carpeting, wall cavities, and beneath cabinets. 

Wall Cavity Ventilation System to more efficiently direct air into wall cavities. 

Venting Box Fan (Axial Fans) to move large volumes of air. These fans are more powerful than air movers and can vent odors out of rooms or can spread deodorizing fogs. 

SERVPRO of Spartanburg is here if you are in immediate need of flood damage mitigation. Our teams are on standby 24/7, so call us at (864) 576-2430 to begin the restoration process. 

Protecting Your Commercial Plumbing

10/30/2020 (Permalink)

The temperatures are dropping, the leaves are falling, but that doesn't mean your business shouldn't be prepared! Low temperatures increases the chance of pipes freezing or cracking, which can ultimately lead to an unwanted situation. 

Pipe Bursting 

It is important to check your pipes in your business to prevent any problems. As the days get colder, especially overnight, you are running the risk of your pipes freezing over which can cause crack and leaks. This can happen no mater the material. Plastic, copper, or steel can freeze which will make the pipes crack or even burst. A pipe burst can let go around 200 gallons in just one day which will cause major water damage to your commercial building.

Prevention

If you are expecting freezing temperatures, be one step ahead and close the water supply lines and washer connections. To circulate heat to the hidden pipes underneath all sinks, make sure to leave those cabinets open to allow the heat in your home help prevent those pipes from freezing. For smaller sinks, another good tip is to leave a small drip overnight.

If your pipe bursts, you should call SERVPRO immediately. We have staff on-call 24/7 and are always ready to help. In water damages, time is literally money. The faster we can get out to the job, the more money you will save!
