Water Damage Seepage = Not Covered Quick Response = Quick Results

Why isn't this covered?

With all the recent rainfall and flooding in the area, many homeowners and business owners alike have been dealing with unwanted water.

Many are finding out, some for the first time ever, that their insurance does not cover "Seepage". Water coming inside through porous material, small cracks or holes in the foundation. Most insurance policies cover broken pipes, busted water heaters, drain back up and even sump pump failure if the proper endorsements have been added to the policies. But with the record amount of rain and flooding in the area many are experiencing "Seepage" which is Not covered under any policy. This falls under the category of "Maintenance", of which the homeowner or business owner are responsible.

We can Help...

Even though you may not be covered for this type of damage, we can still help. Regardless of coverage, you will still need to dry and clean your property properly to prevent further damage. We can assess the situation and give you an estimate on what it will take to make it, "Like it never even happened."

Finding your basement is now a pond.

Water is great if you are a duck, it is your home. But, not so great if it is covering your basement  floor and ruining your stuff. With all the recent heavy rains in our area, many people are finding this a very real problem.

What should you ask yourself if you find this situation?

  1. Do I know the source? Has the source been stopped?
  2. How bad is the damage?
  3. How long has the water been sitting? When was the last time you remember it was dry?
  4. What type of water are you dealing with? Clean? Outside? Sewage?
  5. What type of flooring and contents have been effected?

If you answered any of these questions with an "I don't know.", you need to call the experts at SERVPRO of Quincy. We are trained professionals in the water cleanup and drying process. We will access the situation and determine the best course of action dependent upon the answers to these questions. If you do have the answers to these questions, this will help speed up the process and help us come to your home or business properly equipped and ready to help you make it...

Constant Rain and Flooding, can lead to Mold

6/5/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Constant Rain and Flooding, can lead to Mold Flooding brings more than water problems.

When the flood waters recede...

Flood damaged homes and businesses are very likely to experience mold damage as water and moisture permeates the structure of the building for an extended period of time. Mold organisms are found almost everywhere and only need 3 essential elements to grow: moisture, humidity and a cellulose food source (ie: wood, carpet, drywall). If you have a flood damaged home or business, keep an eye out for discoloration on surfaces and the tell-tale musty odor.

If you notice or suspect mold in your home or business, these are things you can do.

  • Control the moisture. After a flood, the water must be extracted and the structure dried properly.
  • All porous materials (drywall, carpeting, and ceiling tiles) with mold growth should be discarded.
  • Heating and air conditioning filters need to be changed. The system will need to be inspected by a professional and may need to be replaced. Duct work will need to be cleaned.
  • Appliances that contain insulation should be discarded as they may harbor mold spores that cannot be seen.
  • Non-porous materials and surfaces will need to be professionally cleaned depending on the extent of the damage. Remember, if clean up is not handled appropriately, it is likely that the mold spores will spread.

Avoid the Mold, call for Assistance

Emergency Response Program = Commercial Job

From Alter to Altered

It was late on a Saturday night when the call came. There had been a wedding earlier that day and guests were now gathering at a local hotel to celebrate the event. The bride and groom were ready for a quiet, comfortable night in their honeymoon suite. But little did they know, their Alter plans would soon be Altered plans.

It seems that there was a malfunction with the heat in their room, which set off the sprinkler system, flooding their suite and several other rooms.

Emergency Response Program

One week prior to the water loss, our SERVPRO of Quincy salesman had completed an Emergency Response Profile (ERP), for this hotel. The hotel manager was frantic to get hold of someone to ease the mess of this catastrophe. Then, she remembered the ERP. She made the call and SERVPRO was on site within a short period of time, helping eradicate the problem.

All was not lost, due to the system put in place by completing the Emergency Response Program for this hotel. The situation was dealt with and the damage minimized, because of the follow through of a great program.

Keeping Your Pets Warm During Freezing Temperatures

1/28/2019 (Permalink)

With extremely cold days ahead, it is important to not only keep yourself warm but also your pets.  Like us, they can suffer from hypothermia and frost bite. Their paws are in direct contact with the ground and their ears are exposed. However, there are a few things you can do to make sure your furry friend is safe.

Pets living outdoors should have a dry and draft-free house where they can lie down comfortably but also small enough to hold their body heat. It should be raised a few inches off the ground and have cedar shaving or straw. Make sure the entrance is not facing the wind.

Your pet’s food bowls should be switched to plastic. Your pet’s tongue might freeze to the bowl if it is metal.

When using anti-freeze make sure it is out of reach of your pet. Anti-freeze tastes sweet but is deadly to your animal. If they step in it, they might lick it off their paws. There are pet friendly products you can use.

Keep your pets safe in this cold weather.
