Winter storms can seem never-ending when they are still occurring in March!

Don't Forget To Check For Mold

It’s winter and in the Mid-Atlantic region of the country, it is grey and wet!  Without much sunshine, it can start to feel even more dreary than it looks outside.  During these rather bleak months, the infestation of mold can take hold within your home.  Be proactive and take a good look around.  Check your attic when putting away the holiday decorations.  Same goes for the basement, when you’re down there doing the winter purge of too many “things” around the house.  Check bathrooms, laundry rooms, underneath kitchen sinks, wet bars, hose bibs, anywhere that water could possibly leak.  Also, don’t forget to check downspouts, gutters, chimney seams, door frames for good tight seals.  Should you detect mold, or see the tell-tale signs of water, call in the professionals at SERVPRO.

SERVPRO of Fair-Oaks-Centreville-Chantilly can be reached 24/7 on (703) 830-5800.  We’ll send a team of highly trained professionals to assess your needs and take care of your mold related issues.  So don’t let the cold, grey, weather…..and mold, get you down.  Call SERVPRO for assistance. 

Oh No!

This picture is worth 1000 words and is also why you never say never.  Murphy’s Law, the minute you say, “that will never happen to us”, Mother Nature will strike with vengeance!  A recent storm with winds topping 50 miles an hour upended this mature tree right into a house.  Luckily no one was hurt, but the damage was extensive.  Once okayed for entry by the authorities, the contents needed to be packed away and moved, the structure needed to be sealed to eliminate further water infiltration, and the water within needed to be extracted and the structure dry for rebuild.  Why was SERVPRO called?  Because we’re the best!  We entered the home, inventoried and boxed all goods, moved, cleaned and dried all furniture, and sealed the home so it could be cleaned and dried.  Currently, the homeowners are in temporary accommodations while the construction phase takes place.  SERVPRO was able to get in and get our piece of the puzzle done quickly so the rebuild could begin prior to the winter weather setting in for the season.

So, if you find yourself in this kind of situation, why not give us a call.  We’re professionals who know exactly what to do to get your home back together.

Who Are You Going To Call...Ghost Busters....NO, SERVPRO!

What constitutes a hoarder versus a collector?  What is the difference between someone that is thrifty and saves “things” for future use and someone that is a hoarder?  Why are some people so attached to the things they find and store in their homes, while other are minimalists, and even the thought of abundant amounts of “stuff” around the house makes them nervous? We are not sure what the answers to these questions are, but one thing is for certain; some people like a lot of stuff!  Who knows why, but from time to time, it must be dealt with professionally and that this why SERVPRO is often called in to help. 

This picture denotes a home of someone the local government authorities classified as a hoarder.  The situation became so acute that SERVPRO was called in to assist the local police and social services agency in the clean-up.  We at SERVPRO have handled many of these jobs in the past.  We are equipped with bio-hazard suits, gloves and masks, are knowledgeable about the disposal of any bio-hazard materials and are also cognizant of the fact that there may be heirlooms and valuables beneath the surface of trash.   Our professional approach to these jobs is why we are called back time after time and we are pleased to provide this service.

Why SERVPRO?......Because We Do It All!

We recently completed a comprehensive job that entailed water remediation, extensive clean-up, mold mitigation, taking inventory and packing away household contents, and considerable rebuild construction.  The job was very intense and required proper planning, scheduling of staff, ordering of building materials, and most importantly, coordination with the home owner.  There was an inordinate amount of work to be done and it needed to be completed as efficiently and expeditiously as possible so that the homeowners’ family could get back to their normal routine.

When we initially met with the homeowners and they walked us through their home, they asked us to get the water out and house as dry as possible, because they needed to hire someone to come in and pack up their belongings, deal with the mold, and then the reconstruction.  We told them that we would certainly work as fast as possible but that they did not have to hire others, SERVPRO could do all the tasks that they were needing.  Why go to an array of contractors when SERVPRO can handle all that’s required?  They were thrilled that the “complete repair” of their home could be done by SERVPRO and that they could turn their focus back to their kids and get settled in temporary housing.

SERVPRO was able to complete the job a few days earlier than the agreed upon timeline.  The homeowners were amazed at the restoration and extremely thankful.  They have told us that they are now clients for life, and although they hope not to be calling anytime soon, they will not call anyone but SERVPRO in the future.

Why Do It Yourself When SERVPRO Is There to Help!

Why do it yourself when you have SERVPRO at your fingertips!  Simply call or go on-line and ask for our assistance.  With rainy season upon us and the cold winter months ahead, let us dry you out from any water, storm or moisture issues you may experience.

This picture denotes SERVPRO of Fair Oaks-Chantilly-Centreville drying out a customer’s home after a washing machine malfunction.  Did you know washing machines have water fill-top sensors?  If not, you are not alone.  Most homeowners don’t know that washing machines have a sensor that knows to cut the water flow off when it reaches a specified level in the wash basin.  If this sensor malfunctions or breaks, the water continues to fill the tank, resulting in overflowing that does not stop until someone turns off the washer.  A malfunctioning water sensor thinks the water hasn’t reached the correct level and will continue to fill and fill and fill.  So, helpful hint, do not ever leave your washer on while you are not in the house, unless you want to take the chance of coming home to the possibility of several feet of water on your floors!

Should you experience a water related emergency, call SERVPRO of Fair Oaks-Chantilly-Centreville for immediate assistance.  We can be reached 24/7 on (703) 830-5800.
