Pack outs after a storm
Have you been affected by damage recently due to water, fire or a tornado? If so, then you know how important it is to attempt to save the contents in your home. Even if your contents have not yet been damaged, you may still want to protect them during the clean up. Protecting and restoring your personal items after a disaster is done through the pack out process. This is when your restoration company removes and takes your damaged contents (or contents that need to be protected or cleaned), to another location. The new location will allow your contents to be kept safe and to be restored.
SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro is here 24/7 to help with any disaster. Whether it’s rain damage, high wind damage, fire damage, or even tornado damage.
Tornado and high wind damage
Severe storms and tornadoes hit the Miami Valley Monday night, leaving many in the area without power, access to drinkable water or safe shelter.
Celina and nearby communities are still searching for potential victims after intense storms wreaked havoc. Suspected tornadoes also left behind destruction in the Indiana town of Pendleton, about 100 miles west of Dayton. Dayton is currently under a boil-water advisory (with no electric).
Several areas of Dayton were hit hard, along with nearby areas of Troy and Stanley. In addition to trees and power lines, the tornadoes peeled roofs off of houses, brought down businesses' walls and collapsed ceilings.

Steps for mold
If you see visible mold, do not disturb it. You can disrupt the mold spores throughout your home/business. When mold is disturbed, the mold can release microscopic mold spores which become airborne and can circulate inside your home. Mold spores can float around for days before finding a spot to land.
What to Do:
- Stay out of affected areas.
- Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
- Contact SERVPRO of Middletown/Springboro for mold remediation services.
What Not to Do:
- Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
- Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
