Detecting Water Damage "Behind the Scenes" in Paducah & Mayfield Kentucky

1/13/2022 (Permalink)

Water damage can be anything from a small leak to a gushing stream of water from a busted pipe.  How can I test my home for water damage?

Inside the home, look for the following for signs of water damage:
  1. Water rings on the ceiling or walls pointing to a leak in the pipes. 
  2. Soft or sagging spots on the floor, especially near the tub, shower, sinks. 
  3. Cracked or warped tile, laminate or wood flooring.
  4. Look in the cabinet under the sink for watermarks, warping and discoloration that may indicate leaking pipes.
  5. Trust your sense of smell. If there is a mildew or musty smell, it's likely there was water damage and now there may be a potential mold issue that will require mold remediation.

Some of the advanced technology we use to detect and measure possible water issues are:

  • Handheld moisture meters that detects the percentage of moisture in the floor or wall.
  • Infrared Camera - allows the technician to see the hot & cold spots that can indicate serious issues.

Timing is everything with a possible water leak - so don't wait!  Let SERVPRO check your home or business with our state of the art technology.  The longer you wait, the more damage water can do.

If you believe you have a water leak call SERVPRO of Paducah & Mayfield at 270-443-4555. We are available 24/7.

Ever Heard of Thundersnow in Ballard and McCracken County?

1/11/2022 (Permalink)

We saw some crazy weather over the last few weeks.  It was in the 60's and 70's around Christmas.  Then we experienced freezing temperatures with 3 to 6 inches of snow in Western Kentucky, and heavier amounts south and east of us.  Predictions came true on Saturday with warming temperatures, unusual Lightning and loud Thunder with heavy rain in some places.  It didn't take long for the snow to disappear!  :(

Had the temperatures stayed cold we could have experienced the Thundersnow effect.  Never heard of it-Thundersnow, also known as a winter thunderstorm or a thundersnowstorm, is an unusual kind of thunderstorm with snow falling as the primary precipitation.  

We heard tremendous claps of Thunder and long streaks of Lightning across the sky last Saturday.  However the precipitation was Rain instead of Snow.  :(

The Rain on top of the Snow caused flooding in some areas.  Perhaps you experienced some water damage in your home or business from all the excess water.

Is there a plan to keep your business open, or at least shorten the time it takes to reopen when an emergency strikes? Do the key people know where the plan is?  Where's the main water and gas shutoff? 

When disaster strikes your business, having a plan in place ahead of time for what you will do can make all the difference in whether your business survives the event. The majority of businesses that come out stronger on the other side of an emergency are the ones that pre-planned for one.

Storm and water damage affects not only the structure of your house but also your belongings. SERVPRO®  understands that your home is more than a structure; your family’s furniture, clothing, keepsakes, and other belongings help transform a house into a home.

Contents Restoration

SERVPRO specializes in restoring contents damaged by storms and other water damage events. Our expertise and our “restore” versus “replace” mentality can help you save money while preserving precious keepsakes that can’t be replaced.

  • Dry Cleaning - Used for cleaning light residues or to pre-clean prior to cleaning.

What To Do After A Fire In Ballard and Fulton County Kentucky?

1/4/2022 (Permalink)

Everyone is okay!  No one was home when it happened.  An electrical short caused a fire in the kitchen.  The fire marshal is going to inspect our home now to be sure it's safe to go in and assess the damage. 

Luckily only a couple appliances were destroyed but smoke and soot went everywhere.  The smell of smoke is making me cough as I walk around. What do we do now? Who do we call to clean up this mess up?  

Our neighbor had water damage from a busted pipe last winter and they called SERVPRO of Paducah and Mayfield.  She was very pleased with their work. I got on my phone and searched for Fire Damage and Cleanup.  Their name popped up along with some information:

Bursting Pipes in McCracken and Graves County

1/3/2022 (Permalink)

Even though last week we had unusually warm temperatures, winter is definitely here now! 

Water damage cleanup up and restoration is by far the largest percentage of work we do at SERVPRO of Paducah & Mayfield.  

Some of the steps experts recommend may go against your better instincts of conserving water and heat, but the extra expense is nothing compared with a hefty repair bill. Here’s what to do:

Keep garage doors closed, especially if there are water supply lines in the garage.

Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing, especially if your sinks are on an exterior wall. (If you have small children, be sure to remove any harmful cleaners and household chemicals.)

Let the cold water drip from a faucet served by exposed pipes. Running water through the pipe—even at a trickle—helps prevent pipes from freezing.

Keep the thermostat set to the same temperature during day and night. Again, during a cold snap is not the time to set back the thermostat at night to save a few bucks on your heating bill.

If you plan to be away during cold weather, leave the heat on in your home, set to a temperature no lower than 55° F.

For the long term, add insulation to attics, basements, and crawl spaces. Insulation will maintain higher temperatures in those areas. And to prevent drafts, seal cracks and openings around windows, doors, and at sill plates, where the house rests on its foundation.

Urgency is the key to extracting, cleaning, and drying water soaked areas.  Especially to avoid mold and mildew.
