What does SERVPRO of Spartanburg County do about Water Damages?

9/18/2019 (Permalink)

One of our specialties here at SERVPRO of Spartanburg County is water damages. One might ask, “what do you do for water damages?” “Do you just suck water up?” The answer is no, completing a water damage job is so much more than just sucking water out of a residential or commercial property. It takes a lot of training and work to be able to get the job done right the SERVPRO way.

Our production are technicians are trained to classify what kind of water they will be working with on the job site and adjust their methods accordingly. While extracting water is part of the job, our technicians also do any demolition needed to affected areas and remove baseboards or floors in your property. That goes along with the drying process, an important step in completing a water damage. It prevents the property from sparking a growth of mold due to the humidity caused by the water which leads to more money or time loss.  SERVPRO of Spartanburg County have specialized equipment and methods to aid the drying process  to make sure it is completely dry before completing the job. We do not leave until everything is dry. To see for yourself what kind of work we do here at SERVPRO of Spartanburg County, go check out our videos on this website. You can also take a look at the video where our production manager Dallas Gunn goes on to talk about his experiences with water damages and how it has changed since he first started dealing with water damages back in 1994!

Attic Water Damage Prevention

10/12/2018 (Permalink)

This attic suffered water damage that was not spotted and treated so it lead to the grow of mold.

Attic water damage has quite a few causes and has multiple consequences as well. Attic water damage can lead to roof repairs, replacement of attic beams, insulation removal, sheetrock replacement, carpet replacement, and many more. Here are some tips to help prevent you from having to replace/repair things in your attic.

  • Inspect the roof regularly. When it rains, water may creep under split shingles and make its way into the attic. It ruins the walls and ceilings on its way down.
  • Prevent ruptured pipes. Usually the pipe lines run through the attic. If this is the case, make sure to insulate all exposed pipes to prevent them from rupturing over the winter. Also check for any tiny holes and check the joints to make sure that they are still in tact and not leaking.
  • Control condensation. If your attic does not have some type of roof vent to circulate the air up there, you might want to look into getting a powered vent fan to improve the circulation of air and prevent condensation.
  • Maintain attic appliances. Typically water heaters are installed in the attic. To prevent any water damage caused by the water heater, make sure it is flushed out regularly. If there is a central A/C unit in the attic, make sure you are checking the condensate drains and making sure that those drains are not clogged up.

Hopefully these tips will help you prevent any water damage from occurring in your attic. Taking the time to inspect all of this free, paying for damages is not. Call SERVPRO for any questions, comments, or concerns about your attic.
