How to Reduce Your Heating Bill With Winter

10/28/2019 (Permalink)

Keep Your Furnace System Clean

SERVPRO of Grand Blanc is not just a restoration company. We specialize in cleaning as well. If your furnace gets dirty it has to work extra hard, using extra power and possibly still performing less than a clean unit would. Our specialists can come out and properly clean your duct system and evaluate the dirt buildup on your blower blades. Excessive build up on your blades can severely decrease efficiency. 

Check your Homes Insulation

Insulation in the walls of your attic actually play a big part in keeping your home warm. Allot of cool air can be trapped up there, causing the furnace to work double time to heat your house. Make sure that the vents in your attic are clear so air can easily flow where it is needed.

Commercial Water Damage

10/24/2019 (Permalink)

We all get very busy with our day to day schedules and water damage can really put a wrench in your plans. As inconvenient and  time consuming as it may be, leaving water damage for even 1 day can make things significantly worse.

Within Minutes water will spread throughout your property soaking into drywall, upholstery and other belongings. 

Within the first 24 hours drywall will spread and break, metal surfaces begin to tarnish and a musty odor becomes present.

Within 48 hours to a week mold and mildew grow and spread, paint blisters, wood flooring swells and doors and windows swell and warp.

After 1 week of being untreated, the time and money needed for restoration significantly increase and the home or business may no longer be structurally sound.

If you travel south for the winter have a friend or family member check on your home every few days and if your business has a basement be sure to check it regularly.

What you Should Know about Sewage Backup

9/23/2019 (Permalink)

All sewage backups are an emergency and should be treated as such. The water may contain viruses and bacteria that can make you sick. SERVPRO of Grand blanc has trained professionals who come in to your home ready to quickly and efficiently take care of the problem.

When describing the damage and severity of a sewage back up, three categories are used 

Category 1 or Clean Water is water that comes from a clean source such as a faucet or clean water supply line. If left unattended this type of water can quickly move to a category 2 or 3.

Category 2 or Gray Water may contain bacteria and would cause illness or discomfort if digested.

Category 3 or Black Water is extremely unsanitary and can cause death or severe illness if ingested. This type of water comes from the toilet bowl with feces or water from beyond the toilet trap. 

Call SERVPRO of Grand Blanc today for any of your restoration needs.

Disinfecting Clean: Biohazard Job

8/15/2018 (Permalink)

A few weeks ago, we received a call from a company in need of a disinfecting clean. A physical Therapy Company recently learned that one of their patients was diagnosed with C-diff Colitis, a highly contagious bacterial infection that typically resides in the colon. Their facility was shut down directly after receiving the news. We received the call shortly after 4:00 PM and started mobilizing our staff. This was an all hands-on deck situation, as the business needed to reopen the next day. Our staff quickly packed their vehicles, grabbed the proper Personal Protection Equipment and hit the road.

Upon arrival, the crew visited the neighboring store to get the key to the building. Given the nature of the job, prior to entering the building, our crew needed to put on a full Tyvek suit and full-face respirator to ensure that they could safely clean the facility. Our crew knocked that cleaning job out in just 2 hours and the company was able to reopen the next day with their mind at ease.

Sump Pump Failure leads to Flooding Issues

Water seeping under the wall to damage the carpet in the other room.

On April 19th, we received a water loss at a commercial site in the Goodrich area. What we thought was a standard category 1 water loss, was actually a category 3. Over the weekend, they lost power in an ice storm and their sump pump failed, causing the toilets to overflow and flood the building. The employees attempted to clean the water up themselves, but quickly learned that it was a much bigger job than they were equipped to handle on their own and called us.

Upon our Production Manager, Darren arriving on site and conducting our initial surveillance, we learned that there was little to no moisture in the walls. The flooring was not so lucky. After conducting several moisture reading tests throughout the effected areas, we learned that all of the flooring, approximately 500 sqft, will have to be removed.

Later that day, our crew arrived on site to start demoing the effected area. This demo included: The main hallway, 7 rooms and 4 bathrooms. All flooring was removed, and two feet of drywall and insulation from the floor up. Air movers were strategically placed to produce the most desirable air flow and the most efficient drying process. Furthermore, dehumidifiers were used to assist the air movers in their task.

In the end, we have another happy customer and a commercial property that is back up and running as if it “Never even happened.”
