  • Clean your windows inside and out. Use different directions in case there are streaks and you can tell which side they are on to remedy it.
  • Clean all your upholstered furniture. Beat the dust out of removable pillows and cushions outside and then vacuum up and crumbs or dirt that has made its way into the cracks of your furniture.

Water Damage Flood Zone Water Damage Clean Up In Horry & Georgetown Counties Having a plan is key to a smooth rebuilding process when the floods come.

Do you live in and or around a dedicated "Flood Zone" here on the Grand Strand?

We have learned so many lessons from the past 2-3 hurricanes that have hit us here in Horry and Georgetown Counties. One of the main lessons is that if the initial impact does not do damage the aftermath of all the rain most certainly will if you are in a flood zone.

So what are some of the precautions you can take to make sure you are doing all you can to protect the contents of your home should the floods come again?

  1. Determine if you are in an actual flood zone. FEMA has a website dedicated to these types of questions.
  2. Talk to a qualified agent about flood insurance. A lot of times flood insurance is not included in homeowners insurance, make sure you are covered.
  3. Have SERVPRO come out and complete an ERP. This is a free service, do this so that you are in our system and ready to go should there be a flood that damages your Horry or Georgetown Count property!

We deal with flood victims all the time, and almost all of them wish they had a plan in place before the floods came. Call us now to set up your ERP!

Commercial 4 More Things to Think About When Painting The Exterior Of Your Horry or Georgetown County Building It is exterior paint season again!

4 More Things to Think About When Painting The Exterior Of Your Horry or Georgetown County Home ...

A few years ago we gave you 4 things to think about when painting the exterior of your Horry or Georgetown County commercial building. Now that we are into a full blown building boom again, we figured we would give you four more things to think about when painting exteriors.

  1. Consider getting a pressure wash. All of the past years' dirt, pollen and old paint should be set free of the exterior before you begin painting.
  2. Make sure the caulking and seals around doors and windows are still good and free of chips gaps or cracks. You do not want caulk ruining your new exterior paint job.
  3. Do a pre-paint inspection walkthrough. You do not want to get halfway done and find problems that need to be addressed, it helps to plan ahead.
  4. Tape off the windows. As with any paint job the painting of your exterior commercial building should not be any different, tape off those windows!

If you need a professional team to come paint the exterior of your Horry or Georgetown County commercial building call SERVPRO today! 843-236-6278

Cleaning up Puff Backs!

A puff back can be a serious problem and should not be treated lightly! You may remember an article we wrote about soot damage last year titled "Who Cleans Soot Damage From Gas Fireplaces In Horry County", well this is a different event altogether.

A Puff Back happens when extra fuel builds up in the combustion chamber of your furnace.

The extra built up fuel then explodes the next time your furnace starts up, this explosion can severely damage your furnace and your home.  You may hear what seems to be a loud noise (the explosion) followed by noticing dust or soot all over your furniture and or walls. You will probably smell a strong smoke odor as well.

If you have damage relating to soot and or a puff back call SERVPRO right away.

Fire Damage Check Your Smoke Alarms Here In Horry & Georgetown Counties Checking smoke alarms is easy and necessary!

Every month! That is how often you should check your home and or business smoke and or fire alarm.

Fire alarm maintenance can literally be lifesaving. To check to see if your smoke alarm or smoke detector as they are often referred to is working properly press the test button located on your alarm. If it does not beep, refer to your owners manual as there can be a number of issues causing it to malfunction.

You may need to check and change the batteries as well. Old or depleted batteries can render a smoke detector useless and can severely increase the danger element in any household or business.

You also may need to clean the smoke alarm as dust and dirt tend to settle in the nooks and can cause the alarm to malfunction as well.

If you do have fire damage to your home or business call SERVPRO as soon as possible.
