Frozen Water Pipes

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!” That means cold weather and high risk of frozen water pipes. If the water pipes in your home run anywhere without electrical heating, or the heating system fails, they are more prone to freeze.

You may be wondering, “why does this matter?”, or “won’t the water in the pipes eventually melt again?” Here’s what you need to know! Frozen pipes are a danger to your home because they can burst from the high amounts of pressure.

 If this happens, water could leak into your house, cause damage to your belongings, or mold could start growing. Here are some tips on preventing a frozen pipe.

1) During winter, turn your thermostat up a few degrees.

2) Open some cabinets in your bathrooms to allow warm air circulation to the pipes in the walls.

3) If water pipes run through the garage, keep the garage doors shut.

Checking Your Gutter System

Checking Your Gutter System

Gutter systems are very important for your home. Gutters catch rainwater and direct it to the downspouts and into your home’s drainage system. This process protects the foundation of your house. It is very important that you check your gutter system at least once a month, especially during the rainier seasons.

If the gutters or downspouts are not functioning correctly, issues may occur. Without proper drainage, the soil alongside your home will start to wear away or water may leak into your basement or crawl spaces. Some signs to look for in a broken gutter system are standing water inside the gutters, improper drainage, or pooling at the downspouts. High winds during storms can highly damage gutters as well.

If you discover that your gutter system is failing, find water in a crawlspace of your home, or simply want us to come out and inspect, our SERVPRO technicians are happy to help. Call SERVPRO of Parker & Northeast Hood Counties now!

If you find yourself dealing with contaminated water, from a water loss, call in the SERVPRO experts for help.

There are three types of contaminated water:

Category 1: "Clean Water" is from a clean source like a broken water line; however, if left untreated, can degrade into a category 2 or 3.

Category 2: "Gray Water" may contain bacteria and viruses, and can quickly degrade into category 3 if left untreated.

Category 3: "Black Water" comes from flooding rivers or sewer backup and may contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes. 

Let our highly trained experts help you decipher what needs to be done and walk you through the process.

We are open 24/7, and 7 day's a week.

Foggy weather

3/4/2019 (Permalink)

With the foggy weather comes moisture and mold. The warm weather we enjoy so much is saturated by a significant amount of water, which generated the excessive moisture around you. While many fear what the humidity means for their hair or their skin, have you thought about what it means for your home?

In humid climates, homes run serious risk of damage from collecting all of the moisture the air carries. A common result of high humidity levels in your home is mold. Mold grows quickly, in warm, damp conditions and can fester into an entire colony within 24 hours of their spores attaching themselves to surfaces and feeding. As mold grows and spreads throughout your home, allergens and irritants are released into the air which creates a dangerous situation for you and your family. The allergens and irritants can become toxic, causing respiratory problems and other health issues. That's why it's critically important to take steps in preventing mold growth in the first place, We recommend starting with a dehumidifier for your home. Using a dehumidifier will help you maintain optimal humidity levels that are both healthy and comfortable. Running fans, and checking up on your HVAC system will also help keep the humidity down. Make sure everything is running smoothly and functioning properly to help circulate air flow, and if you need help with an inspection you can always call SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties.

Oh No My Water Heater Broke!!!

3/4/2019 (Permalink)

A water heater breaks, the sink won't stop running or some other clean water source causes damage to your home. You've called SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties and we're on our way, but in the meantime there are some things you can do to help mitigate.

Shut off the water source

Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building

Remove as much excess water as possible

Wipe excess water from wood furniture

Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpet

Remove paintings and place them in a safe/dry place

You may have noticed I said 'clean water source' in the beginning of this post. Water from toilets, outside the home and any other contaminated source pose a different danger. When water damage has been caused by contaminated water we suggest avoiding all contact and washing your hands thoroughly after contact with contaminated items.
