Preventing Moisture Damage in Your Home | SERVPRO of West Forsyth County

Water does a lot for us in our daily lives. Most of us run multiple loads of laundry, do the dishes and hose our children and pets down after they get a little wild outside every day. Having water the exact moment we need it makes our lives a lot easier.

Water may help us out when it is where we want it, but when it finds its way into all the wrong place, it can make our lives completely chaotic.

While Mother Nature has been known to throw some curveballs at us that leave our homes wetter than they should be, we can take action inside our homes to prevent other kinds of water damage. The more you know about preventing moisture buildup, the more you can keep your home free of disasters.

Under Your Sinks

Getting to know the places that water hides starts by getting to know your sinks. With so many water lines running in different directions, it can be hard to find small leaks. When a leak is allowed to drip long-term, it can lead to damage in your cabinets and under your floors.

Make sure you are looking under your sinks in your kitchen and bathrooms once a week. Feel all of your water lines for extra moisture. Make sure that any connections are tight, and replace anything that is showing signs of aging. The more you can keep things in good working order, the more you can avoid costly repairs.

Beneath Appliances

Large appliances are another huge convenience in our home, but they are also common places for small leaks. When a leak starts in an appliance it often starts under or below it, which means it may drip for quite a long time before you know something has happened.

Every few months, pull out your washing machine, dishwasher and refrigerator. Give the area behind them a good cleaning, and check for mold growth. Feel all around them for soft spots or drips in the floor as well. These are all indicators you need to do a little more work to find a potential leak.

Behind Your Walls or Floors

One of the many reasons you want to find leaks before they have cost you a lot of water is that they can lead to damage behind your walls and under your floors. It doesn’t take much water to find its way into cracks and crevices—no space is too small for water to creep in.

If you notice a musty smell, particularly around your appliances and the walls they touch, it could be time to do some more investigating. A new squeaky spot in the floor is another concerning sign that some damage has been done.

Around Your Windows and Doors

When there are large differences in the temperature in a single day it can lead to condensation on your windows. You might be tempted to ignore this common issue, but condensations can stick around longer than your want and lead to structural damage.

This moisture can get into cracks and crevices around your windows and your doors. Feel around the frames of both your window and doors regularly. Replace your seals when they start to wear out. Any sign of excess moisture means it is time to seal things up better.

Don’t let water damage derail your life. As soon as you find damage, call SERVPRO® and we will respond quickly. Whether it’s handling standing water or structural problems from a long-term leak, we will do what it takes to get everything back on track.

Don’t ignore signs of water damage! Call SERVPRO for a quick restoration.

Most of us don’t dedicate a lot of time to thinking about the potential of a disaster striking anywhere, especially not in our own town or home. Considering what things might look like afterward is just a picture too unbearable to imagine.

While some natural disasters can be predicted and prepared for, there isn’t a way to guarantee that you will come out the other side completely unscathed. Manmade disasters can be totally unpredictable, too, and can create total chaos.

No matter where it comes from, when a disaster strikes, our focus will always be completely on getting our lives back on track as quickly as possible. That is why being able to work with a local company after a disaster is important.

Making the Right Choice

Disasters are an overwhelming experience, and seeing the damage left behind after the dust settles can be even more difficult.

You need a crew you can rely on to get recovery going as fast as possible.

In order to get things handled correctly and quickly, choosing a restoration service should be the first thing you do.

Damage That Can Be Done to Your Home | SERVPRO of West Forsyth County

11/17/2023 (Permalink)

residentail home with roof destroyed and debris falling down If you discover damage in your residence, call SERVPRO of West Forsyth County right away.

These days, there are a number of threats to our homes. Intense weather, possible fires, aging of the structure…the list could go on and on.

While there may be a lot of different ways your home can be damaged, there isn’t any reason why we should sit around and worry about them. Instead, we can prepare for them. You can’t always predict what is going to happen, but when you are prepared, you can rest a little easier knowing that you have done everything you could to mitigate your losses.

In order to prepare your home and yourself for the potential risks we face every day, you have to first familiarize yourself with them. The more you get to know what can happen, the more comfortable you can be riding them out—and the easier your recovery process will be afterward.

With SERVPRO of West Forsyth County in your neighborhood, your recovery process won’t just be easy, it will be quick and thorough.

The Biggest Risks

Severe weather isn’t something we can ever really rule out in the our area. With a subtropical climate that keeps temperatures moderately warm year-round, strong thunderstorms and flooding rains are always possible. In the warmest months, we can see tornadoes or even the remains of tropical storms that have blown in from the coast.

We may have a lot of risks to consider around Winston-Salem and other communities, but there are three main kinds of disasters you should focus on when it comes to being prepared for anything. Water damage, fires and roof damage are some of the top risks every home faces on a daily basis.

These three kinds of damage can originate from natural or manmade sources. Even though this part of North Carolina doesn’t have a high probability of wildfires, they can still start outside. Both indoor and outdoor fires are almost always a product of human error.

Your roof could be damaged during high winds or heavy rains, or even what seems to be a randomly occurring falling limb. Water damage also comes in a number of ways, be it flooding or an appliance failure.

Compounding Damages

Living through a disaster is hard, but when you begin to see the extent of damage that has been left behind, it can feel completely traumatizing. Regardless of what kind of disaster it was, one form of damage will almost always lead to another.

Flooding will leave everything in its path wet, and it will create the perfect conditions for mold. Mold can move quickly after a flood, spreading to and damaging the foundation of your home. A fire can stain walls in your home that were nowhere near the flames and leave behind odors that affect your whole home. The effort to put a fire out even leaves additional damage from either water or chemicals that leave things wet and stained.

Whether the disaster you experienced was natural or manmade, your recovery process will need to happen in a number of steps. SERVPRO has the training and tools to handle wind, fire, water, mold and construction. No matter what you and your home face, we’ve got the availability, experience and professional crew to handle it.

If a flood soaks your basement or heavy rain causes water to run down your walls, our first step will be to dry out as much as possible. Our team will also make sure your home is structurally sound and can replace roof beams or shore up your foundation as needed. As the process moves forward, we will sanitize and seal your home in order to prevent additional mold from forming or returning.

Fire restoration happens in a similar fashion as we address the most damaged parts of your home first. Our professionals will remove anything burned beyond repair and make sure your home is closed off from the elements to prevent any additional damage. We will tackle any water left behind from when the fire was put out, and if your home was burned badly enough, we can tear it down and rebuild it so that things are exactly as they should be again.

SERVPRO® works directly with your insurance company and coordinates with other contractors throughout your restoration process as well. That means that after you call us, we take care of every aspect of getting you back into your home. Our crew makes it their goal to make the process smooth and simple while getting your life put back together fast.

Does your home need restoration and you don’t want to make more than one call? Contact us to get everything handled by one team.

Why Business Emergency Plans Matter | SERVPRO of West Forsyth County

11/17/2023 (Permalink)

clip board with a disaster preparedness checklist and emergency supplies in the background Are you prepared for disaster? SERVPRO of West Forsyth County is here for you when disaster strikes!

Natural disasters continue to become more frequent across the nation. If you take a look at the statistics from the past five years, not only will you see that disasters are happening more often, but you’ll also see that they have gained in strength.

You can’t live by statistics alone, though, and there is always a chance that your business will never see a natural disaster. Even if that is true for your company, the possibility of a manmade disaster is still a real risk you could face.

Taking into consideration the risks your business faces is a hard task to complete, but it is crucial for staying safe. With a plan, your focus can be on growing your business instead of worrying about what could cause it to come to an end.

The Importance of a Plan

As natural disasters continue to become more common, preparing a plan is the best way to protect your business. Getting to know the things that threaten you and your employees is the best way to stay ahead of them.

Disasters, whether they are manmade or from Mother Nature herself, not only cause what can be extensive physical damage, but they also are one of the most costly events that could ever happen to a business. When you have a plan, you can protect the lives of your staff while ensuring your business’ financial future is safe.

When you plan ahead, you can get back to work faster after a disaster strikes and forces you to shut down work. Many businesses that are forced to close after a catastrophic event never reopen. With a plan, your business will never be counted in that number.

An Emergency Ready Plan

When you are ready to create an emergency plan for your business, call SERVPRO®. Our Emergency Ready Plans are the perfect solution for protecting your business. With a plan that is individualized to meet your business’ exact needs, you will be ready for storms, floods or fires well before they can strike.

The first step in creating your plan is an assessment from our team. We will look over your business from top to bottom in order to lay out the best road to take in every potential situation. Our crew will walk your crew through how to respond before, during and after a disaster.

When a disaster is predicted to strike, you can put your plan into action simply by saying “go.” Your team will know exactly what to do—including protecting paperwork, preparing electronics for remote work and getting your building ready to avoid damage.

The Emergency Ready Plan will have a large emphasis on communication every step of the way as well. With a chain of command established in your plan, information will be distributed correctly and quickly.

Our trained professionals will also stay in contact with you, and as soon as it is safe to do so, a team will begin necessary restorations at your property. While we repair your damage, you can get business up and running, whether on site, remotely or in a previously designated location.

With SERVPRO and the Emergency Ready Plan, you get a complete safety package. Your plan will help you avoid business closures, financial losses and ensure everyone knows how to stay safe. It also comes with our wide range of experience, 247 availability and the backing of a national brand. We make it our goal to help you reach yours—getting back on track as fast as possible.

Ready to create your Emergency Ready Plan for your business? Contact us for your free assessment to start the plan you need.

Enjoy a Fire-Free Holiday Season | SERVPRO of West Forsyth County

11/17/2023 (Permalink)

The holidays are back again, and we couldn’t be more excited to eat…we mean share joy with the family. Gathering the family is always a blessing, but we do love the food that comes along with our celebrations. If you are the family chef, make sure you employ a little extra safety.

The number of house fires that happen every year always increases around the holidays, and the kitchen is one of the top places they start. The good news is when you prioritize safety you can enjoy every bite of every meal.

Reducing Flammable Materials in the Kitchen

When you head into the kitchen to prepare the holiday meal, add a few extra steps in order to prepare your space as well. Kitchen fires spread faster when there is clutter close to heat sources.

Remove anything decorative before you cook, and pay attention to where your towels, pot holders and oven mitts are. Don’t just toss them down after you use them, always keep them a safe distance from the stove.

Watch out for wooden utensils, and store them away from anything hot. It only takes a single spark or pop of grease to start a disaster.

Think about what you are wearing as well. Avoid anything with strings, flowing fabric or dangling decorations. Skip the cute apron the kiddos made you until after the cooking is done in order to keep yourself safe.

Keep a Close Eye on Food

The best way to keep your kitchen safe is to stay close by when anything is cooking. Kitchen fires can get out of control very quickly.

Fires can start whether you are baking, grilling or frying. You need to be in the room in order to take quick action and stop the flames before your entire kitchen is on fire.

If you are planning on deep-frying a turkey, you will need to take a few extra steps in order to stay safe. Don’t overfill the oil, and make sure the fryer is on a level surface.

Thaw your turkey out completely before cooking it. A frozen turkey can cause an explosion when it hits hot oil, and a partially thawed turkey can cause oil splatter that will burn anyone nearby.

Install Protective Measures

Fires may not be completely preventable, but when you take as many steps as possible towards safety you can lower your risks. Make sure your home is properly prepared as well.

There should be smoke detectors on every level of your home, including in or near your kitchen. Check the batteries monthly, but take an extra step and check the one in your kitchen before you head in to cook the holiday meal.

A small fire extinguisher is another piece of equipment you should have stored near your kitchen. Keep your pan lids in arms’ reach as well so that you can quickly smother any grease fires that might pop up while you cook.

Make this season a safe one. If something does happen in your home that leaves you dealing with fire damage, call us. We are available around the clock to get your home put back together fast. Our team will handle your restoration so that you can get back to celebrating.

House fires can happen in the blink of an eye. Contact us for a quick restoration day or night!

Safely Navigating Every Winter Storm | SERVPRO of West Forsyth County

11/17/2023 (Permalink)

residential driveway covered in ice with icicles hanging down from the vehicle parked there The winter season is almost upon us! SERVPRO of West Forsyth County has your back with these helpful tips.

When winter blows in, things can get pretty challenging. While cold temps and flurries aren’t that unusual for our area, we can also see strong winds, heavy snow showers, freezing temperatures and ice.

The good news is that no matter what winter brings to our area, with preparation, we can safely navigate through all of it. When we take the time to prepare our homes and our families, we can rest assured that we will ride our all the storms well.

Preparing Your Home

When the forecast starts including heavy winter storms, the best thing you can do is prepare ahead of time. You want to have your supplies and be able to safely hunker down at home. Snow, ice or heavy cold rain can create incredibly dangerous driving situations.

If you have a weather radio, get it out and make sure it is appropriately programmed. If you don’t have one, this is a great investment to make since it can help keep you safe year-round. It’s common to lose power during a winter storm, so you will need a way to consistently get updates without electricity.

Prepare an emergency kit with batteries, flashlights and some first-aid supplies. Stock up on water and snacks, as well as any fuel needed for alternate heating sources you may have. If an early season storm blows in, check your fireplace to make sure it is in good shape and grab plenty of blankets to bundle everyone up.

Think about potential backup locations for your family in case things get really cold for a while. Talk with your loved ones about their plans, and make the best decisions to keep everyone safe. Warming shelters often open around town, so keep an ear on local stations to find places you can go during the day or overnight as needed.

Taking Care of Your Home After the Storm

Once the storm is gone, head outside to take a look at any potential damage. Even if everything is looking pretty good, there are a few things you should do to make sure your home and your family continue to stay safe.

If you can safely do so, inspect your roof. You’ll want to use caution if snow or ice is sticking around, but you need to make sure your gutters are clear. If there is a good amount of snow, you may want to use a roof rake to pull snow off of your roof from the ground. That can help ease the weightload on your roof, as well as ensure anything that melts can flow quickly away.

Check for wind damage around your home, and make sure all of your gutters are still safely attached all the way around your property. Clear snow, ice or other debris away from your downspouts. You want to make sure when things melt, water isn’t able to puddle around the foundation of your house. Clear vents off as well in order to allow proper ventilation and prevent potential carbon monoxide build up.

How We Can Help

If you do find damage when you are able to inspect your house, call us right away. We are available around the clock for you, and we can get a team put together and headed to your property quickly. Our team is local, which means we understand just what our North Carolina winters can do—and how to fix it fast.

Once our team arrives, we will assess your needs and walk you through what the restoration process will look like. It is our goal to get your home put back together so you can enjoy the winter wonderland while it lasts.

Our team is always ready for anything! Contact us at SERVPRO of West Forsyth County for a quick restoration after suffering damage from a winter storm.

Keep Your Team Safe When Severe Storms Hit | SERVPRO of West Forsyth County

As a business owner, you never really know what to expect during a typical workday. With so many challenges to overcome, it can be hard to focus on the possibility of trouble striking from outside the workplace, but you’ll need to consider it to keep your workplace safe.

Severe weather is one of the many obstacles that business owners must consider when preparing their businesses for the unexpected. By giving your team the knowledge to navigate a Winston-Salem storm, you create a secure environment that not only safeguards your employees but also keeps operations running smoothly.

Give your employees the storm safety training they need to stay safer and respond quickly during a Winston-Salem storm:

Know Your Risk

There are a variety of different hazards to consider as you begin preparing your team to face a catastrophe. Focus on some of our most prevalent weather events as you build a plan specific to your building’s location.

Winston-Salem encounters a slew of weather threats throughout the year, like thunderstorms, flooding, snowfall and hurricanes. These weather threats can be devastating for the community, leading to widespread disruption and costly damage. Knowing what might strike in our area is crucial to protecting your business.

Finding out if your business is in a flood zone can help you prepare your workplace for unexpected floodwaters. Take advantage of weather alert systems that provide real-time weather advisories, and check the forecast before each workday.

Make a Plan to Communicate

Regular communication is vital for building a positive work culture within your organization. This communication shouldn’t only be saved for a regular workday; you must have a way to stay connected when disaster strikes.

All of your employees should have access to the same system to ensure you can get in touch no matter when disaster strikes. A well-established communication method allows you to keep them informed about any changes in the weather situation and provide safety guidelines. This ensures that your employees remain safe and well-prepared for any emergency.

Plan Your Evacuation

It can be stressful to envision, but you’ll need to prepare for the possibility of a storm evacuation. Take proactive measures to protect your team by clearly marking exits and practicing your evacuation plan so they can escape as quickly as possible.

When severe weather poses a threat to your business, your team may also be forced to shelter in place. Find a designated area within the building that offers the most protection and store an emergency kit inside.

You never know when calamity might strike your Winston-Salem business, but having a plan in place will ensure your team is prepared! Help your employees keep their cool in the middle of a storm by taking the time to plan ahead.

Don’t let extreme weather take control! If storms strike your business, SERVPRO can help you restore your losses.

Storm-Proofing Your Home: Essential Tips | SERVPRO of West Forsyth County

9/19/2023 (Permalink)

Empty parking lot with lots of greenery shown during a heavy downpour of rain. Have you been impacted by the unusual summer storm season? SERVPRO of West Forsyth County has your back when you experience flood and water damage.

Around Winston-Salem, it is common to see thunderstorms, strong winds, intense rain and serious flash flooding. In fact, we may see all that in the same day during the summer months! The heat and humidity in a North Carolina summer create ideal conditions for storms, so you need to take steps to prepare your home and keep your family safe.

Wondering how to do that? It can be quite simple! Every step you take now to secure your house can ensure it’s safer for your family and less likely to experience damage during a storm.

Are You Prepared for the Season?

Don’t make things overcomplicated! Many storm-proofing measures may already be integrated into your regular routines or on your monthly or quarterly home maintenance list.

Regardless of your location, strong winds and heavy rain can pose risks to your home and yard. You want to remove anything from your property that could either be turned into a projectile by wind or cause a leak or structural damage to the house itself.

That means you need to regularly trim your trees, along with removing branches and other debris from the yard. You should also make sure that your trash can, patio furniture and other outdoor objects are strapped down or otherwise secured in some way.

Check your gutters regularly, and make sure they’re clear of branches, leaves and other debris. This will help ensure water flows properly away from your house during heavy rain.

You should also check the structure of your house regularly, looking for potential water entry points, like broken or missing shingles on the roof or gaps around the windows. Fix those promptly.

Defending the Exterior of Your Home

While many storm preparations can be done without spending extra money, some extra upgrades can provide you with a little more peace of mind.

Storm shutters can be a good investment since they can fortify your windows against strong winds, or you may want to consider replacing your existing windows with a higher-quality window in general. If your property has lots of trees, gutter guards or something similar can be helpful in keeping the gutters clear of debris.

If there is a modular building on your property, like a shed, make sure it has strong tie-downs that keep it adhered to the ground.

In the unfortunate event of storm damage, SERVPRO® of West Forsyth County is available around the clock to efficiently restore your home.

Safeguard Your Summer BBQs | SERVPRO of West Forsyth County

Man holding tongs above grill preparing food outdoors Have you had a barbeque gone wrong? Call SERVPRO of West Forsyth County to get your space back in shape.

As summer arrives in North Carolina, everyone is gearing up to spend sun-filled days lounging by the pool and grilling out with beloved friends and family. Cookouts are a blast, but it is essential to practice grilling safety to prevent hazardous situations and potential fires while you’re having fun this summer.

Here are some essential tips to guarantee a delightful summer BBQ experience for your family, while keeping fire risks at bay.

The Best Spot for Your Grill

When it comes to grilling safety, the first step is selecting the perfect location for your grill. Place it outside, away from enclosed spaces such as garages or roof overhangs. Make sure to adhere to Winston-Salem grilling regulations, including keeping grills at least 25 feet away from any structure to ensure safety.

It’s crucial to find an area that has adequate ventilation and also to make sure that nothing flammable is placed over your grill.

If you are using a charcoal barbecue, check for dents, cracks and ash buildup before lighting it. Owners of propane grills should thoroughly inspect the gas lines for leaks and make sure that the connections are tight. To avoid dangerous fire situations, any problems with leaking propane tanks or lines must be fixed at once.

Staying Safe With Open Flames

When grilling, it is imperative to remain attentive and have a water source readily available as a precautionary measure. Utilize a spray bottle to control flare-ups, and keep a hose or fire extinguisher within reach.

After cooking, hand off the food to someone else and remember to turn off the gas or close the vents for charcoal grills to stop the oxygen supply. Properly dispose of ash and embers in a metal can to eliminate potential fire hazards, even after you have finished grilling. Before concluding your BBQ, make sure your grill has completely cooled down.

Stay Safe and Have a Great Time

We wish you a safe, southern summer filled with delightful moments. However, in the unfortunate event of a fire incident during your BBQ, remember that SERVPRO® of West Forsyth County is always ready to provide professional fire damage restoration services.

Don’t allow fire damage to linger in your home—reach out to SERVPRO of West Forsyth County for speedy, professional restoration assistance.

Your Next Moves After Water Damages Your Home | SERVPRO of West Forsyth County

Pool of water sitting on top of a herringbone patterned wood floor with furniture nearby If you discover water damage in your home or business, call SERVPRO of West Forsyth County right away.

You might have other things on your mind than water, but it plays a significant role in our daily lives. You might say it’s an underappreciated asset! You can turn it on in your sink with the flip of a faucet handle, or send it swirling through your washing machine by simply clicking “on.”

When we’re using water in the home, it’s under control. Contrast that with the water behaves in nature—it’s wild and often untamed.

Sadly, it can become the same in your house, if a water disaster occurs. Water damage can quickly crop up if a leak develops in your kitchen sink or if your basement floods due to heavy rains.

You can many steps to prevent these things, but you won’t be able to entirely prevent every instance. That’s why it’s important to know what to do when water damage strikes.

What to Do First

Spotted water where it shouldn’t be? The faster you can respond, the better your outcome will be. The longer that water sits on the floor or pours in through the roof, the more likely you are to incur significant costs and additional damage, like mold growth or structural problems.

Your first step should be to play detective and find the source of the water. If there’s a big hole in your roof where a tree cut through it, that will be quite obvious. But if your washing machine is leaking, you may have to work a little harder to find the problem.

Find the source, then work to stop it. Turn off the water source at the cutoff valve. You will also want to cut off electricity in the outlets near the water damage to remove the potential for other hazards.

Once you are safe and secure, give our SERVPRO® team a call. We are available 247 to jump into action when water damage occurs.

A Peak at Our Water Damage Restoration Process

When you call us, we’ll ask you a number of questions to gather information about the type of damage you’re facing and the extent of the damage. This information will help us establish a project plan for completing your water damage restoration project.

We will ask that you snap a few pictures of your damages. These photos are helpful for us, and they will also be provided to your insurance provider to expedite the claims process.

From there, the action begins. Our team of water damage restoration experts will bring industry-leading equipment into your home to dry up all traces of water, including both obvious puddles and tiny droplets. Those tiny droplets, which can’t be seen by the human eye, can be disastrous, setting you up for mold growth and structural damage.

During this time, we will also be removing and drying soft materials in your house and other belongings. This falls in line with our “restore vs. replace” mentality, where we focus on saving as many items as possible.

Once the water damage issue is mitigated, we will turn our focus to finishing the restoration work, which may require construction services to return your home to preloss condition. No matter what’s needed, our SERVPRO team has you covered.
