SMR Highlight --Morgan: The Storm Chaser
SERVPRO across the States
We have a number of talented marketing team members in our ranks at SERVPRO® of Madison, Rockcastle, Garrard, & Lincoln Counties, but our Service Marketing Representative Morgan Blount goes above and beyond.
Last year, Morgan took her first leap into storm by going to Hurricane Harvey in Texas. She then traveled to Brunswick, Georgia where Harvey had made landfall as well. She spent a month away from her home all to be there to help our customers in need. There were a variety of issues her customers had to go through from this storm: flooded basements, to blown off roofs, flooded garages, and even sump pump failures.
Our team of certified technicians traveled with her, along with our owners Mike Parsons and Tony Roberts helped with the storm travels.
Together, this team helped many people in other communities. This year Morgan has been to Louisville and Pennsylvania to help other communities again during storm weather.
The floods in the north caused severe damage for people who needed SERVPRO's help.

Our Marketing Rep Morgan in Pennsylvania leading the storm team.
Our storm team travels all over the United States to care for other communities during their time of need. The local SERVPRO's in those communities get overloaded with calls, so they activate SERVPRO storm teams from all over the country.

Did you know there was more than one type of smoke?
We have calls daily for fire, smoke, and soot damage. If you need a clean-up in your home, call SERVPRO today.
There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Here are the different types to know when you have smoke damage in your home or business:
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.
