May 6-12th Is Hurricane Preparedness Week In Horry County

Storm Damage May 6-12th Is Hurricane Preparedness Week In Horry County Be Prepared This Hurricane Season

Hurricane Preparedness Week

From the desk of the Community Risk Reduction Officer for our local Fire Dept:

During Hurricane Preparedness Week, make sure you have a hurricane evacuation plan.

The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you're in a home that would be unsafe during a hurricane.

If you are, figure out where you'd go and how you'd get there if told to evacuate. You do not need to travel hundreds of miles. Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn't live an evacuation zone or unsafe home, and coordinate with them to use their home as your evacuation destination.

Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not permit them.

Put the plan in writing for you and those you care about- share your plan with your neighbors.

Find evacuation zones here:

And as always SERVPRO is here for you when the storm is over to help put your life back together!

Stopping Mold In Its Tracks In Horry County

Mold Remediation Stopping Mold In Its Tracks In Horry County SERVPRO Helps Fight Mold

Mold naturally occurs in our environment.

Fungi produce some very useful results. Even though some forms of mold can add value to our lives, other forms can be very harmful.

Excessive amounts of mold, different types of mold, and/or exposure to molds may present health concerns for some people.

The intrusion of water into your home or place of business can result in mold growth. Water intrusions can result from storm damage, plumbing or equipment failures, long-standing leaks and poor humidity control.

When water intrusions are not fixed right away, the resulting damage can present an increased risk of harmful mold growth. Some amount of mold spores are normally present in most environments. If the humidity and moisture levels in a water-damaged environment are not promptly returned to normal, mold spores may grow and multiply.

Organic materials found inside a building, such as wood, paper, drywall, and insulation, provide food sources for mold to flourish. Excessive mold growth can lead to indoor environmental conditions that pose a health threat.

Mold and mildew are common nuisances in our humid South Carolina community. However, you cangreatly reduce the risk of infestation in your home. It’s worthwhile to consider because reducing exposure to mold in Myrtle Beach is important for both you and your home’s health and well-being. 

Mold spores in the home environment have been known to cause adverse health effects. In addition, mold colonies can cause unsightly damage to your home, like staining of furniture and carpeting.

Who Cleans Soot Damage From Gas Fireplaces In Horry County

Fire Damage Who Cleans Soot Damage From Gas Fireplaces In Horry County Gas Fireplaces Can Leave Soot Damage Too

Don't be confused. It's not a puff back.

A puff back is when you have an oil based heating system and when oil that is burning in the system builds up it pops back into the house. 

We handle a whole other kind of fireplace soot damage.

Sometimes, gas lines on the gas fireplace will produce soot damage when either of the logs was installed incorrectly or if they had been moved by a homeowner so they weren't sitting correctly or the unit had run out of gas then the soot in that gas tank will come out and land all over everything in the home.

So we have to go through the house and find all the areas where the soot had gotten to and more often than not, we find that it got to every corner of the home. In closets when we remove clothes you could see where the clothes are pushing against the wall because it was outlined with soot.

It leaves outlines around pictures too. We have to clean everything top to bottom all contents and all of the structure. Most clients had to have the clothes sent out for cleaning too.

If you have had this kind of gas fireplace soot damage, call SERVPRO today: 843-236-6278
