Mold Remediation  Madison, Rockcastle, Garrard, and Lincoln County Residents: Is the “Mold Monster” trying to take over your home or business? Don't let "The Mold Monster" take over your home!

Everyone dreads when they look in their basement, under the kitchen sink, or around wet boxes in the garage and see that yellow, green, black, or orange substance. The sinking feeling hits – “I’ve got a mold problem.” While not all mold is bad, some mold can cause health concerns for many people. Any kind of water flooding in your home or business can cause mold to grow --anything from water leaks to varying humidity. The best way to get ahead of the “Mold Monster” is to take precautions. Here are some different signs that your home or business is being over-run by the “Mold Monster” himself:

-You can visibly see the mold
-Musty odor –indicates mold is present
-Any type of moisture problems that may have -caused mold growth
-Excessive humidity

If you think you have a mold problem, and the “Mold Monster” has taken up residence in your home or business, please call SERVPRO® of Madison, Rockcastle, Garrard, & Lincoln Counties at (859) 623-0000. We are always Here to Help!

Fire Damage Having the right equipment during a fire can save your home –and your life! P.A.S.S. graphic for fire safety before the fire damage occurs.

Fires and fire damage are common tragedies among homeowners. But, there are ways to lessen the damage. SERVPRO® of Madison, Rockcastle, Garrard, & Lincoln Counties is Here to Help so fires don’t ruin your summer. One is having a proper fire extinguisher --especially, during grilling season. Make sure you follow these rules from our friends at the American Red Cross when it comes to having a good extinguisher:

  • Always have more than one working extinguisher in your home.
  • Install extinguishers high on the wall and away from any heat sources.
  • If an extinguisher doesn’t work on a fire immediately, drop it and get out. Most portable extinguishers empty in 8 seconds.
  • Make sure the gauge on your extinguisher is properly charged.

Once you have the right fire extinguisher, always remember PASS:

P- Pull the pin and hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you.

A- Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.

S- Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly

S- Sweep the nozzle from side to side.

We hope these tips keep fires and fire damage from your homes. But, if you have fire damage and need SERVPRO, we are always Here to Help. Call SERVPRO® of Madison, Rockcastle, Garrard, & Lincoln Counties at (859) 623-0000.

It’s not time to change the clocks back, but it is time to change your smoke alarms!

Fire Damage It’s not time to change the clocks back, but it is time to change your smoke alarms! It's always that time of year to check your smoke alarms to keep your family safe from a fire and your home from fire damage!

Smoke alarms can improve the safety of your home a significant amount when it comes to fires. A fire can happen at any time, and you will want to make sure you and your family are safe. Here are a few tips from the American Red Cross on how to update your smoke alarms to keep your family and home safe before a fire ignites: 

  • Have a smoke alarm on every level of your home and in every bedroom.
  • Keep smoke alarms away from windows, doors, walls, or ducts that can stop your alarms from working properly.
  • Check your smoke alarm monthly.
  • Replace smoke alarm batteries every year, or more if needed.

Keeping your family safe is the main priority to having a properly working smoke alarm; but fires can also cause hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars’ worth of damage every year. There is soot, smoke, and even water damage when it comes to a bad fire. The faster you know there is a fire, the faster you can get it put out.

Whether it’s Mold remediation or Golf --SERVPRO is ready!

Mold Remediation Whether it’s Mold remediation or Golf --SERVPRO is ready! Marketing Rep Chanel Music getting ready for a day of fun in the sun with the SEK Golf.

Marketing Rep Chanel Music and Marketing Coordinator Kelsey White traveled up the mountain to the South-Eastern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Golf Scramble last week to represent SERVPRO. They met with many city council members along with business owners throughout the day. The day was fun and hot, but they did have time to talk all things mold. The participants expressed their concern for mold damage in their area. Because they know, when water damage sits for too long, mold begins to take hold. The mold spores rapidly reproduce when moisture is present. For residents that can be dangerous, and for business owners, it can cause legal issues. Mold litigation is becoming a reoccurring case in the legal systems. Commercial property or personal property should be well-taken care of in case of water damage where mold can grow. One of the most common questions we receive is: Do we test for mold? The short answer is, no; however, we do refer industrial hygienists who can test for mold.

Here’s what to do if you find mold:

  • Stay out of affected area.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO® Madison, Rockcastle, Garrard, & Lincoln Counties for remediation services.

What not to do if you find mold:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.

Here in the bluegrass state we have weather patterns that can go all over the place. Business owners, homeowners, and city officials must be prepared. When the weather acts up, SERVPRO is ready to act fast!
