Basement Water Damage

8/9/2018 (Permalink)

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your West Greenville County basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

African Dust Helps Prevent Tropical Storms from Forming

7/27/2018 (Permalink)

Have you noticed that this year's hurricane season has been quieter than normal? There have not been as many tropical storms as there usually are, and part of the reason is because of this season's African dust.

The amount of African dust over the eastern and central Atlantic Ocean is inhibiting tropical storm development. Although this dust occurs almost every year, some years there is more dust than others. The dust is created in the Sahara Desert and is blown through the Caribbean Sea and Gulf Coast by strong winds. This dust creates extremely dry air over the ocean which can prevent tropical storms from progressing. 

This year the African dust has prevented a lot of tropical storms from forming so far. The rest of the hurricane season is also expected to be quieter than usual.

Water Damage Why You Should Fix Water Damage Immediately This home experienced water damage and did not start the restoration process immediately. This was the result.

When your property has been damaged by water, you do not have time to wait for a convenient time to start the restoration process. Not only will the water damage continue to get worse and make the restoration process timelier, but it can also cause mold growth in your home if you do not start the restoration process immediately. There is a 24 to 48 hour window from the time something gets wet until mold can start to grow. Once mold stars to grow it can spread very fast.

In order to protect the damage in your home from getting worse it is best to call a restoration service as soon as you find the water damage. That is why SERVPRO of West Greenville County is a 24 hour emergency restoration service. We are here to help at any time of the day or night to restore your home back to normal!

What You Should Know About Black Mold

7/17/2018 (Permalink)

You may have seen sensational news reports that warn about the dangers of “black mold” or “toxic mold”. These reports can be alarming and confusing so it’s beneficial to get the facts to better understand mold.

Stachybotrys Chartarum

Stachybotrys chartarum is the type of mold often called black mold. It is most likely to appear in areas that are warm, humid, and damp. Black mold can cause a musty smell, similar to dirt, in your home. Mold can come in a variety of colors. Black mold is typically a dark greenish-black color. However, just because mold is not this color does not mean it is not harmless.  

You should contact us regardless of the color or type of mold. Treat any mold with caution – stay out of affected areas and don’t touch or disturb it. In many instances, multiple types of mold may exist in the same house or structure.
