Flooding and water emergencies don’t wait for regular business hours and neither do we.

However, when we arrive on site, we quickly start the water extraction process almost immediately. Our fast response helps minimize the damage and the cleaning and restoration costs to you. Our advanced drying methods allow us to respond quickly to your water removal and cleanup needs, and also helps prevent secondary damage and mold.

Fire and smoke damage

7/26/2019 (Permalink)

When fires occurs, in both residential homes and business alike, it’s not just the cleaning up of the structural areas that we need to be concerned with.

Our crews have to be so careful with the homeowner’s personal belongings because the insurance companies need very specific documentation in order to appropriately compensate the insured so they they have money to replace all of the damaged items. The fallen debris must be sifted through prior to bagging for disposal so that any contents, which may be very small items, can be separated for further valuation.

SERVPRO of of Middletown Springboro team members need to be very aware of properly bagging and separating these items, so taking our time in small spaces with lots of contents is a very important part of the clean-up process.

Fire/smoke damage

7/25/2019 (Permalink)

Cleaning smoke stains off walls and ceilings can be a difficult task. Even if the fire was small like a cooking fire, the smoke can quickly discolor your ceilings and walls. Since smoke rises, the smoke usually damages your ceilings first as the smoke spreads across the ceiling leaving smoke residue. While smoke can usually be cleaned easily off metal and smooth surfaces like counters and ovens, ceilings and walls are not so easy to clean, specially if you have very high ceilings.

While we all hope we never have to suffer through the experience of a house fire, it is important to know what to do if one should happen. Obviously, the first thing you should do is ensure the fire has been extinguished completely.

This can be done by someone in the home if the fire is small and can be put out easily and safely. Or by the fire department if the fire is too big and dangerous to safely extinguish by the homeowner. It’s important to note that it’s always best to call the fire department right as soon as a fire is spotted and to get everyone out of the home quickly and safely.

Water damage in your home or business

Aside from fire, water damage is quite possibly the fastest  damage to your  home. Flooding, rain, leaking pipes, or broken appliances are all possible sources. A whole in your home's foundation that allows humid, moisture-filled air can also cause water damage. Moisture in large amounts leads to condensation, causing water pooling and damage.

 Once water is present it is likely to quickly take action against any porous materials, depending on the kind of water and length it is sitting. Even material that are not quite as porous but still allow for sitting water, will feel the affects. Mold, rotting, or destroyed material are all potential consequences of water intruding into your home.

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).

5/9/2019 (Permalink)

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.
