Discovering Roof Leaks

3/7/2019 (Permalink)

We have had excessive rains that have caused flash flooding throughout Tuscaloosa this year. This has caused many Tuscaloosa and Northport homes to experience basement flooding. During further inspection homeowners have discovered slab leaks or roof leaks that they had not noticed before. If you do discover these leaks, call SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa to help extract and treat your home to prevent the conditions for microbial growth to occur. 

If your Tuscaloosa home does suffer water damage from a flooding or roof leak, SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa is Always Here to Help.

Fire Detectors: Life Savers

3/7/2019 (Permalink)

Smoke Detectors in your Tuscaloosa home could save your life and your family's! 

According to The American Red Cross

  • 7 people die daily in a house fire
  • Every 40 minutes a fire injury is reported
  • $7 billion in property damage every year

The National Fire Protection Association strongly suggest that a smoke alarm is installed in every bedroom, outside every sleeping area, and on every level of the home. If your Tuscaloosa home is larger, you may need more smoke alarms to ensure you will be alarmed when smoke hits the detector. 

Many home security systems now offer a smoke detector option that will contact your local fire department in the event of smoke detection. This is a great safety tool for when you are out of town or possibly a really heavy sleeper!

In the event of a house fire big or small, call SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa for your clean up needs.

Call your local Red Cross Chapter to help assist with adjusting if you have been temporarily put out.

When the Rain Won't Stop

1/28/2019 (Permalink)

What do you do when the rain won’t stop? We are barely in 2019 and we have experienced more rain and less sun. All this rain had caused the ground to reach its precipitation threshold. This has caused many Tuscaloosa and Northport homes to experience basement flooding; as well as, discover slab leaks or roof leaks that they had not noticed before. If you do discover these leaks, call SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa North to help extract and treat your home to prevent the conditions for microbial growth to occur. While SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa North offers reconstruction services, it is best to consult a professional when it comes to fixing foundation issues. We will be there to dry and get your home back together “Like it never even happened.”

A Remedy for Microbial Growth

1/28/2019 (Permalink)

Do you have a finished or unfinished basement that you avoid? Checking areas of your house such as basements or attics periodically will help you catch small leaks before they become long term damage. Busy schedules or maybe even problems with getting into these areas can cause homeowners to practice “out of sight out of mind.”If you have a leak, even a small one, that goes unnoticed for any period of time, you could potentially have a big problem with the optimal conditions. Basements and attics are usually uncontrolled atmospheres which can leave conditions optimal for microbial growth. If you use these areas for storage, it is not just the structure of your home that is potentially a food source for spores, but your belongings could suffer damage. Call SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa North to help clean any microbial growth safely and thoroughly.

When Mushrooms Grow Indoors

1/28/2019 (Permalink)

Most organic life naturally grows outdoors. SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa has come across fungi growth indoors when a water leak has gone unnoticed. The most common we have seen at SERVPRO Tuscaloosa North is a slow leak in the walls. It may be behind furniture or not affected the drywall and only soaked into the carpet and padding. Depending on the portion of carpet and the access for cleaning, the water saturation could go unnoticed. Fungi will not always grow out of saturated carpeting, but if the conditions are right it can be a possibility.  This is much easier to remediate the fungi, but you must remove all your carpeting and find that leak! Call SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa North to start your remediation process. We are faster to any kind of disaster.

When you find mold in your business, it is important to have it removed as soon as possible. The best and safest way to do that is to use SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa North to remediate your microbial growth needs. 

Any type of Mold can spread quickly. If you have mold you can see on a wall or floor, there likely is more mold in places that you can't see. Getting the mold professionally removed ensures that you prevent it from spreading any further and doing any more damage to your work place.

Removing microbial growth is time consuming and must be performed by a professional remediation company to prevent cross contamination. Trying to do it yourself can be difficult and also can put your safety at risk. Having the mold professionally removed ensures that the job is done right and that your safety and health are protected.
