How to Reduce Your Heating Bill With Winter

10/23/2019 (Permalink)

Keep Your Furnace System Clean

SERVPRO of Northwest Genesee County is not just a restoration company. We specialize in cleaning as well. If your furnace gets dirty it has to work extra hard, using extra power and possibly still performing less than a clean unit would. Our specialists can come out and properly clean your duct system and evaluate the dirt buildup on your blower blades. Excessive build up on your blades can severely decrease efficiency. 

Check your Homes Insulation

Insulation in the walls of your attic actually play a big part in keeping your home warm. Allot of cool air can be trapped up there, causing the furnace to work double time to heat your house. Make sure that the vents in your attic are clear so air can easily flow where it is needed.

Water Damage Timeline

5/29/2019 (Permalink)

We all get very busy with our day to day schedules and water damage can really put a wrench in your plans. As inconvenient and  time consuming as it may be, leaving water damage for even 1 day can make things significantly worse.

Within Minutes water will spread throughout your property soaking into drywall, upholstery and other belongings. 

Within the first 24 hours drywall will spread and break, metal surfaces begin to tarnish and a musty odor becomes present.

Within 48 hours to a week mold and mildew grow and spread, paint blisters, wood flooring swells and doors and windows swell and warp.

After 1 week of being untreated, the time and money needed for restoration significantly increase and the home or business may no longer be structurally sound.

If you travel south for the winter have a friend or family member check on your home every few days and if your business has a basement be sure to check it regularly.

Steps to Take if Your Business is Affected by Water Damage

2/27/2019 (Permalink)

Water damage at Sawyer Jewelers in downtown Fenton

It is never a good time to have your business affected by flooding or water damage but it can happen at any time.

So what should you do first?

- First call a plumber. The restoration process cannot begin until the water stops and the problem is fixed.

- Second call your insurance company. Report the incident and get a claim reference number. Your insurance company will assign an insurance adjuster. This person will go onsite, asses everything and determine how much money the insurance company should pay.

- Third and most important, call SERVPRO of Northwest Genesee County. A certified professional will come out and evaluate everything that was affected. They will then determine how much work needs to be done, answer any questions or concerns you may have, set up a plan of action and work with your insurance company to make sure you are being covered for everything that was affected.

For a stress free claims process, SERVPRO can help manage the insurance paperwork and process.

Top Benefits of a Professional Carpet Clean for your Commercial Property

11/14/2018 (Permalink)

Consider using a professional company instead of rental equipment or DIY Methods
Clean carpet is essential in your home. Your carpet can trap many things that can be toxic. Contact us at 810-732-3298 to schedule a cleaning today.

You likely schedule daily or weekly office cleaning service to keep your business tidy. However, even with regular sweeping and vacuuming, your carpets can accumulate stains. To ensure your office is presentable, SERVPRO of NW Genesee County offers expert carpet cleaning service, including spot removal and upholstery stain removal, to get rid of stains that sweeping and vacuuming miss. We also offer dry cleaning service for areas where color-fastness is crucial. Below, we reveal some of the most valuable benefits of regularly having your carpets professionally cleaned.

4 Reasons to Schedule Commercial Carpet Cleaning Services

1. To Improve Air Quality

Carpeting collects a wide variety of air contaminants, including dust, pollen, mold spores, and bacteria, that can cause allergy symptoms and exacerbate asthma and other respiratory problems. If not removed, these particles could end up back in the air you and your employees breathe, resulting in a lot of downtime and loss of productivity.

2. To Remove Stubborn Stains

Some stains are extremely persistent and cannot be removed without professional attention. For stubborn, unsightly carpet blemishes, contact the experts at SERVPRO of NW Genesee County for help. We use powerful cleansers and state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to remove even set-in soils and spatter.

3. To Look Professional

Carpet stains simply don't look professional, and if you invite clients into your offices, they could well be turned off by the dirty, grimy appearance. Moreover, even if your customers never enter your premises, the untreated stains could signal that sloppy work or carelessness is acceptable. To avoid sending that type of message, contact a professional carpet cleaning service.

4. To Extend Carpet Life

Deep-down dirt and grime can damage carpet fibers and cause the rug to wear out more quickly than it should. Regular carpet cleaning removes contaminants that cause damage and discoloration and extends the useful life of your office carpeting.

Commercial carpet cleaning offers some important benefits for your business. To schedule service, contact SERVPRO of NW Genesee County. We also specialize in water extraction and mold remediation, and offer 24/7 emergency service throughout Genesee County and the surrounding areas. Call 810-732-3298 to request a quote.

Commercial Fire Damage from Lightning

Lightning struck a local police station- causing a fire

What Happens When Lightning Strikes Your Home or Business?

This is the aftermath of lightning striking a local police station- causing a fire. The fire suppressant system kicked on- causing damage throughout the entire building.

Consider this following fact:

The positive charge from lightening is being negated by negative charge of ground and all grounded objects. The house is grounded, after lightening strike the electrons from earth are moving through all objects between ground and stroked point. As the movement of electrons in circuit with resistance higher than 0 emits heat, most objects are being burned or damaged.

Although lightning storms can be a sight to behold, they can also cause electrical damage to your home or business. In fact, the insurance industry estimates that around 6.5% of all property casualty claims are related to lightning strikes.

  • Call SERVPRO of NW Genesee County if your home or business has a fire due to lightning.

Commercial Flood Damage

10/25/2017 (Permalink)

A fire suppressant system failure is the cause of this flood in a financial institution in Flint, MI.

A flood can cause large amounts of damage to a business. It can damage stock, equipment, machinery, furniture, clothing, and many valuable items. Of course there are floods of varying severity and you hopefully won’t suffer anything too serious, but if you do have a flood at your place of business, you will want to deal with it quickly.

Burst pipes, sudden downpours, a copious amount of melting snow, broken gutters, leaky windows, damaged foundation, sudden removal of large trees near your home…there are many reasons how water can flood your basement. Water flows downhill into the lowest areas and it can make its way through even the smallest cracks and openings. Depending upon the age of your home and the region in which you live, your foundation is most likely either poured concrete or stacked concrete blocks. Sometimes the foundation is coated or shielded with a water barrier material, designed to keep water out. Over time homes settle and shift, sometimes compromising the structural solidity of the foundation. Whatever the reason may be, contact us today to take care of your flood needs!
