Plans for Traveling

We have all been there, anxiously awaiting our planned vacations to commence. Whether heading to the beach for our summer vacation, home for the holidays or just the short weekend "get away" for some much needed R&R, it is an exciting time.

However, before you depart and leave your home vacant for any period of time, you may want to consider doing some preventative maintenance to insure you don't arrive home nice and relaxed but with a mess on your hands.

First, check all the supply lines to items such as toilets, refrigerators and fittings on dishwashers and washers. Second, you may want to consider turning off the water to your home to prevent a serious water leak.

Lastly, remember SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville  is here to assist you in any situation so if you should arrive home and find that the unthinkable has occurred, call us at (678) 376 - 5515 - 24/7. Our trained technicians will make it seem like "it never even happened" 

Impacts of Water Losses

2/22/2019 (Permalink)

Accidents occur, it is part of life. When water accidents happen, be it from an overflowing sink or bathtub, just cleaning up the water is not enough. Usually it is the water you don't see that causes the problem and creates a larger headache in the future.

While mitigating surface water is imperative and prevents more extensive damage, those water intrusions can find there way to cracks in floors, ceiling and walls and to the lowest point of your home. It is this water, searching for the low point that if not addressed, can result in greater damage.

No loss is to small for SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville at 678-376-5515 immediately. Our trained professionals will mitigate the situation quickly and prevent further damage.

Freezing Temps

1/23/2019 (Permalink)

Depending on where you reside, frozen temperatures can be a common occurrence or an infrequent event. What is common however, is the impact homeowners experience when broken pipes  result in a flooded residence and the adverse impact it can have.

Fortunately, there are some simple steps that can be taken to limit potential damages. The first is to leave water running (both hot and cold) in one of your inside rooms. The amount of water left "on" is minimal and should only amount to a trickle. Other housekeeping items to complete include insuring outside water lines (such as outside faucets, in ground sprinkler systems, etc.) should be drained and turned off.  Lastly, any pipes that are exposed should be insulated (or re-insulated) to be protected. Additionally, move any plants "inside" along with pets to prevent harm.

Finally, keep the number to SERVPRO handy (678 376-5515) in case something does go wrong. Remember we are here to insure it looks like "IT NEVER EVEN HAPPENED".

Unseen Effects of Water Damage

10/8/2018 (Permalink)

Accidents happen all of the time, whether it be from an overflowing sink, bathtub, or toilet, you get up the water and you think you're in the clear. Its the water that you don't see that can cause issues for you down the line.

Removing surface water can help prevent more extensive damage. However, water intrusions can invade floors, ceilings, and walls to find the lowest point in your home. The standing water searches for any pinholes or cracks in the floors and walls while traveling downward. This allows water to get into the interior of the home, and if not addressed, could cause further damage.

Even if the loss appears small in the beginning, call SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville, 678-376-5515, as soon as you've had a water loss. This will allow our trained professionals to mitigate the situation and prevent further damage from occurring.
