Water in the Crawl Space of Your Newburgh Home

8/23/2021 (Permalink)

What do you do when water enters your crawl space?

  • Let a professional inspect your home and crawl space. You want a technician who will know how to look for a foundation crack. 
  • Start the process of drying the water and moisture.
  • Clean the debris, remove plastic material, and wet insulation

These tips are helpful when it comes to dealing with water damage for yourself; however, the best thing to do when you find water damage, is to call the professionals: SERVPRO® of Henderson, Webster, Union, McLean, and Crittenden Counties for help. We can check the water for the category which will tell us the contaminants. It will tell us how to clean it and other things to make your crawl space clean and dry again.

Call our offices today, if you notice water in your crawl space. 

Newburgh Fire Damage Clean-up

Lightning Strike Fire Damage

A few weeks ago a Newburgh home was the target during a storm for a lightning strike. The strike hit the basement light fixture and caught flame immediately. The fire began while the family was upstairs when one member went downstairs and saw the flames. 

The structure of the home was damaged from the basement ceiling all the way up to the second floor. The smoke coated every inch of the home especially the basement and second floor. 

Our team has handled these types of jobs for years and knows how to help customers during these times of need. The best way to efficiently work this job was to cover everything from mitigation (from the water to put out the fire) to the smoke remediation, to the reconstruction. Our team helped put this family's home back together "Like it never even happened."

Our reconstruction consulted on this job because our team was taking care of the reconstruction as well. When damages of this nature occur you want a team that is compassionate, efficient, and trustworthy with such in-depth damage.

September is Disaster Preparedness Month

As we go into September, the need to protect your home and loved ones are the top of mind. Disasters from hurricanes to tornadoes, frequent storms, fires, to even water can create emergencies that need preparation. 

The best way to protect both is "Prepare to Protect."  Here are a few ideas from Ready.gov on how to start to be prepared: 

  • Make a Plan
  • Build a Kit
  • Lost-Cost Preparedness
  • Teaching Your about How to Be Prepared

Disasters come when we least expect them. The best way to be as ready as you can be when they arrive is to talk to loved ones and raise awareness before the disasters. If you need more help to prepare check with your local emergency departments for more tips and planning information.

Follow These Fire Safety Tips

Residents of Newburgh, Jasper, Santa Claus, and surrounding local areas: when it comes to fire safety there are a few precautions to help protect against fire damage. Here are a few tips to think of to protect against fire damage:

  1. Do not leave the stove area unattended while cooking or with the stove on.
  2. Watch what you wear-- long sleeves that drape or other free-flowing clothes can catch on fire.
  3. Do not have dish clothes or fabric over the cooking area, like dish towels.
  4. Do not keep grease on the stove where it can get hot, and do not hot grease down in the trash or down the sink. This can cause damages and damage to your pipes in the long-run.

Call us when fire damages occur, but keep your home safe with these tips.

Fire Damage --Smoke and Soot Damage

The Different Types of Smoke Damage

Residents of Newburgh, Jasper, Santa Claus, and surrounding local areas: when smoke or soot damage occurs there can be a variety of types. The difference between the smoke types depends on how to clean it efficiently and correctly. Here are the different types of smoke damage for your home:

Wet Smoke: Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke: Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises, therefore, smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue: Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

If you have fire damages in your home, call the professionals to help. Call SERVPRO® of Warrick, Spencer, and Dubois Counties to help. 

Emergency Storm Damage Kits

4/7/2021 (Permalink)

The storms are here, and they can prove to be dangerous. When storms occur the best way to protect yourself and your families is to shelter safely away from the storm. When storms happen there is not always a specific sign of how long they will last or how long the damages will last and their impact. 

We have compiled a list of some items to keep handy during storm season in your safe zone. Here are a few below: 

  • Extra batteries 
  • Non-perishable food 
  • Bottled Water
  • Tennis Shoes
  • Battery operated radio 
  • extra chargers 
  • extra food for your pets 
  • phone numbers of local emergency systems

After the storm is over, we hope you do not need to call us, but if you do -- (812) 706-2100. We are open 24/7 and 365 days.

Storm and Tornado Season

Residents of Newburgh, Jasper, Santa Clause, Morganfield, and surrounding local areas: storm season is here. In April, things take a turn and the rain clouds turn to storm clouds. There are a few ways to keep safe. One of those is by having accurate and fail-proof warnings from weather stations and alerts. Check out the three below that can work best for your family and home:

  • Reviewable alerts (you can scroll through alerts and turn off the siren for alerts you do not wish to hear).
  • Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) alert programming (alerts when specific counties are threatened, ensuring you only receive alerts for your county).
  • Ease of programming

Keep these alerts in mind, so that your family has a plan to know when storms are coming and be updated on them while sheltering in a storm-safe place for storms.

No Job Too Big or Small for SERVPRO® of Warrick, Spencer, and Dubois Counties

A water main break caused flooding in a large commercial church over the weekend. The team had to arrive after hours to help stop the water and clean up standing water. Our trained technicians stepped in and knew exactly how to clean it up. Once the standing water was cleaned up, they began to set equipment for efficiently drying the church.

SERVPRO® of Warrick, Spencer, and Dubois Counties were called in to clean up the aftermath. The director of the facility was beyond happy with the outcome. The owner is beyond happy with our progress and how clean we are making their facility. We are making it "Like it never even happened."
