Flooded Living Room in London, KY

11/19/2020 (Permalink)

When a homeowner who had used us several times before called in a water damage to her home at 1 a.m. -- we were there in an hour. 

We loaded up our crew and equipment to head to our customers home. Unfortunately, a washer had been left on before they went to bed that night and the hose disconnected filling their downstairs living room with four inches of water. 

Our crews worked overnight for this customer by getting all the water out. Then, we had to cut two inches into the drywall from the bottom to begin airing out the walls and insulation. 

This customer had to have equipment for the next week, and new flooring in the living room, but she was impressed at how much we saved her home from water damages and repairs. 

When a water damage occurs letting the professionals SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties do their jobs, makes the aftermath much easier to handle for you and your home. 

Call us today for help with your emergency water damage needs, we are open 24/7 and 365 days. Our hero technicians are here for you on weekends and holidays. Water damages do not wait for weekdays and neither do we!

Mold Testing: What's that?

11/2/2020 (Permalink)

Mold testing for your home or business!

Once you discover mold in your home, the next step is to call SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties for mold testing. Our office is licensed to perform mold inspections and has developed a protocol.

We perform a visual inspection that includes photo documentation of all mold growth. If the visual inspection uncovers mold growth, no further testing is needed. If mold is present, it will need removal and remediation. Air and surface samples are taken from every room in the house or apartment along with a laboratory report to explain the findings, only if needed.

After the results come in--

One of our inspectors sits down with each customer to explain not just the results, but every step we took during the inspection.

Also, we provide an estimate of what steps we take to treat and remove the mold along with how much each task costs. We want to provide the best possible solution for your home or business.

Call our office today to schedule your mold testing!

We can help with Mold Damage

Mold problems? Let us help!

The most common reasons for mold growth are humidity, water leaks, and condensation.  Condensation generally occurs in the atmosphere when warm air rises, cools, and loses its capacity to hold vapor. As a result, excess water vapor condenses to form cloud droplets. Those droplets can create a mold issue.

When you suspect you have mold damage, it is best to call a professional. Mold damage can create a lot of issues down the road if not taken care of right away.

Mold is known for hiding and usually grows behind the walls and out of sight. Mold likes these spaces because they hold large amounts of humid moist air. To find mold, most of the time you will need to have a professional preform an invasive inspection.

Hire a professional--

You want a professional who knows what to look for and why. When mold is present there are certain measures you have to take to make sure it is properly removed.

Call our offices today!

If you suspect you may have a mold problem call the professionals at SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties today. We offer mold testing so we can help you in the most efficient and effective way possible.

Going on vacation? 

When you are going on a trip with family or with friends, you make a list of things to pack or do before you leave. Most of the items on that list have to do with pets, or neighbors, or checklists of what to bring. You pack up your items for a great week, or weeks, away from home. You have a great time with friends or family, and it can all be ruined in a matter of minutes when you return home. When you open that front door and there is water four inches high in your basement or living room:

Did you put your home water supply on that all too important list? 

In a lot of cases, we see water damages because folks have forgotten to turn their water off before they take a vacation or extended trip. It is always a good reminder to turn your water heater OFF. 

When you turn your water off, you take the pressure off the house. You are much less likely to come to emergency damages, if you have turned your water off.

Keep up to date on electrical wiring and water shut-offs before you leave for an extended vacation. We are always here to help during your emergencies. But, if you follow our tips, there may be less of those for you to have to worry about. 

Enjoy that vacation or trip with family and friends, but do not forget the water coursing through the pipes of your home. Put "remember the water" at the top of your next vacay check-list!
