Storm Season in Ballard and McCracken County Kentucky

5/31/2022 (Permalink)

FLOODS

Preparing for a Flood:

  • Know your risks for floods
  • Make a plan for your household, including your pets
  • Check to see if you need Flood Insurance

Flooding is a temporary overflow of water onto land that is normally dry (bet you already knew that). Floods are the most common natural disaster in the United States. Failing to evacuate flooded areas or entering flood waters can lead to injury or death.

Floods may:

  • Result from rain, snow, coastal storms, storm surges and overflows of dams and other water systems.
  • Develop slowly or quickly. Flash floods can come with no warning.
  • Cause outages, disrupt transportation, damage buildings and create landslides.

If you are under a flood warning:

  • Do not walk, swim or drive through flood waters. Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
  • Remember, just six inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
  • Stay off bridges over fast-moving water.

Weather Changes Happening in McCracken & Graves County Kentucky

4/1/2022 (Permalink)

It's that day again - April 1st - April Fools Day!

Storm season in here again too, and they are no joking matter.  Two days ago wind gusts were reported of 40-50 miles per hour!  

At 50+ MPH winds are officially classified as “damaging”. Shingles will be blown off. Tree limbs and other debris will be picked up. Damaged or water-saturated trees will start to fall.

Often storms and high winds can weaken even the biggest tree limbs that one day come crashing down.  It's recommended to have a qualified person inspect your trees for dead or rotting limbs and have them removed. 

It is also a good idea to review what your homeowner's insurance covers so you know your responsibility if your tree falls on the neighbor's house. 

Be safe! 

Call SERVPRO of Paducah & Mayfield @ 270-443-4555 if you experience Fire or Water damage.

Water Mitigation in Mayfield and Paducah Kentucky

4/1/2022 (Permalink)

Water is essential for life. At the same time, water is the single leading carrier of pathogens in the world today. The elements necessary to support microbial growth are always present; all that is required to initiate a destructive chain reaction of microbial growth is the addition of excess moisture. Where this happens, microorganisms will rapidly multiply and cause structural breakdown (dry rot & wet rot), create odors, and potentially create serious health issues for the building occupants. Too much science? 

Why is this important for you to know? When a water loss occurs, either by a busted pipe, ice maker leak, sewage backup, or flood, the single most important thing to know is how much time the structure remains abnormally wet. This is why the most critical course of action is to respond quickly! 

SERVPRO uses proven methods and technology to extract excess water for any emergency. Then once the water has been extracted we start the drying process. Air movers, Dehumidifiers, special drying equipment are used to remove excess moisture. Just because it looks dry - doesn't mean it is dry. We monitor the materials affected to be sure we're using the right equipment for the right amount of time!  

SERVPRO of Paducah & Mayfield is available 24/7 for all your Fire & Water cleanup and restoration.  Call us at 270-443-4555
