Storm Damage A Storms Rage Damage to siding as a result of a hail storm.

I am sure that we have all experienced the force of Mother Nature during a summer thunderstorm or hail storm, but sometimes, even the best of us can't escape the damage that comes along with those storms. In the picture below, you can see that during a hail storm, not only are our roofs in jeapordy, but the siding on our homes are also. When the siding gets damaged, this leaves the inside of your home at risk for water damage as well. The sooner you report the damage and get SERVPRO of Franklin, Vance and Granville counties on the scene, the better. We can start the cleanup and drying process immediately and aleviate a lot of the circumstances that come with water damage, such as mold. We are available 24/7 so give us a call at 252-433-0005 or 919-339-4848 any time day or night.

Fire Damage Supervise and be Safe House Fire in Vance County, NC

With the summer months quickly drawing to a close, we will be spending a lot more time indoors, which means more cooking and more fire safety knowledge to share. SERVPRO of Franklin, Vance and Granville Counties would like to provide you with some tips to remember:

First, Supervise all items on the stove top as 58% of kitchen fires involve ranges with electric ranges having a higher risk than homes with gas cook tops. Fires can spread quickly. make sure you have a fire extinguisher in your kitchen!

Never leave a candle unattended... 32 candle fires are reported daily in the month of December!  That is 992 preventable fires!

Be Safe and Supervise! These people weren't so fortunate and this is what can happened.

Mold Remediation DIY water damage on Lake Gaston Mold damage caused by DIY attempt to repair a water damage at Lake Gaston, NC

A homeowner had a water damage which they decided to mitigate themselves. By not having the technology of moisture meters and hydrometers, the customer thought it was dry, until they started seeing mold in various locations throughout the area. They even tried to clean up the mold with bleach several times, but it kept coming back. They finally called SERVPRO of Franklin,Vance and Granville Counties to get remediation done correctly. 
The moral of this story is  that "it is the water that you don't see that causes the problem." If you are questioning whether or not it is important to seek professional help when a water damage occurs, let this remind you that it is not always best to take care of things yourself.

Community WHERE IS TOM NOW? Tom is our Truck Driver searching all the states for SERVPRO Vehicles. Where is here now?????

Tom Aubin is hard at work driving transfer trucks throughout the United States. He loves finding SERPVRO vehicles on the road.  If anybody is wondering Tom always  takes a picture while in traffic or stopped along the road.  Tom has driven through all the lower 48 states. He is a great ambassador for SERVPRO and we at SERVPRO of Franklin, Vance and Granville Counties love trying to figure out what state he is in by the pictures he takes.  The SERVPRO vehicle in  spotted in the state of Kansas.  Keep trucking Tom and searching out SERVPRO vehicles and large loss trucks.

TOM IS ON THE MOVE AGAIN

Here is another picture for our friends to guess. Where is Tom in this picture???? Tom is still cruising around the United States looking for those SERVPRO trucks and vans! He generally travels in the central states, however, he stretches his legs from time to tome and heads out west to California or Oregon and then sometimes he can be found in Texas or other Southern States. He doesn't go into New England very often, he is originally from Rhode Island, so I think he has been in that area long enough. Let's see if we can get any winners out of this picture! You can comment on our Facebook page for SERVPRO of Franklin, Vance and Granville Counties or you can even call us at 252-433-0005 or 919-339-4848.

This is Tom. Tom is married to our Office Manager, Kim, and he is an owner operator truck driver. Tom travels around all 48 lower states, and in his journeys, he is always looking for SERVPRO vehicles. We thought it would be fun to post pictures of the SERVPRO vehicles that he finds and see if YOU can figure out where Tom is. If you think you know where he is, let us know. We will update pictures as they are available. Tom has been in the trucking business for over 20 years now. He originally started trucking when he was in the Army National Guard where he served our country proudly for 20 years. He loves being on the open road and seeing his Country. While he is exploring the area, he will be looking for as many SERVPRO vehicles as possible and we will post his pictures here so you can try to figure out where he is.

Youngsville, NC: Does your home or business have a mold issue?

Mold Remediation Youngsville, NC: Does your home or business have a mold issue? SERVPRO of Franklin,Vance and Granville Counties cleaning up mold in a Youngsville, NC business

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:



  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.

  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.

  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.

  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.

  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.

  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.


 


If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.


If You See Signs of Mold, Call Us Today – 919-339-4848 or 252-433-0005
