SERVPRO Equipment

servpro equipment The Right Tools for Any Job!

On any job that SERVPRO of West Greenville County's production team sets foot on, we are going to have the bare minimum of the SERVPRO Green equipment pictured to the right. No matter the size of the job, all of our trucks and vans are loaded with air movers, dehumidifiers, and air scrubbers. 

If you have never experienced a water, fire, or mold loss in your home or business, these tools may look foreign to you. Let us break down some of the equipment you may see if SERVPRO of West Greenville County comes to mitigate a loss for you. Starting with the three tools pictured;

Air Movers 

An air mover is a high power fan that blows air into the affected space to dry the area as efficiently as possible. Our crew arranges the equipment often to assure maximum drying. 

Air Scrubber

An air scrubber helps to remove toxins and odors from the affected space, such as fire or mold smell. 

Dehumidifier

A dehumidifier works hand in hand with the air mover to help dry the affected space. It can help to stop an microbial growth from happening.

These are just a few of the tools that our crew use to help mitigate the water, fire, or mold damage from your home or business. Some jobs require more specialized equipment to get the job done. Make sure to check out our blog on specialized SERVPRO equipment that we may use on larger jobs. 

Inspection of Storm Damage

6/13/2022 (Permalink)

Most of the storms that we see during the summer here in the Upstate of South Carolina do not leave extensive damages on the outsides of our homes. However, tornadoes and thunderstorms are much more likely to occur over the summer months, and these storms could leave you with some big damages.

After a big storm passes, it is always a good idea to provide an initial inspection of your home or business, before you call the professionals in for help. Doing this will allow you to communicate the extent and severity of the damages, giving us at SERVPRO of West Greenville County a better ide of what we are coming into.

For this initial inspection, we recommend to check your roof, windows, doors, shudders and your HVAC. If you see any extensive damages, make sure to record them to make information more accessible for insurance and your restoration/mitigation company.

Summer 2022 Storm Damage

4/1/2022 (Permalink)

As the summer months approach, so do the storms that the change in air temperature and wind speeds bring. Summer storms tend to be more harsh than the ones that we in the Upstate of South Carolina experience in the other months. The best way for you to prepare for these summer storms is to make sure your house is prepared in advance. Here are some things you can do to help prepare your home or business for the coming summer storms. 

  • Make sure you have the proper insurance to protect your home or business from a strong summer storm. 
  • Remove or trim all trees that are dead or have heavy hanging limbs.
  • Keep the property around your home or  business free of all debris that could cause damage if blown around by the wind.
  • Check that all windows are properly installed and do not have broken seals or glass.
  • Clean out gutters of all debris to prevent them becoming clogged with heavy rainfall.

Even if you are completely prepared for the coming summer storms, there is still the possibility of damages that are not preventable. Things like strong wind, flooding, and lightning are not preventable and can cause serious damage to your structure. If you do suffer water, fire, or mold damage from summer storms, call the professionals at SERVPRO of West Greenville County to come out and take care of the job.

Steps to Take After Storm Damage

12/17/2021 (Permalink)

With tornadoes and heavy rain extending into the later months of the year, storm damage can occur any time to your home or business. While these storms can cause structural and water damage, they also pose safety and health hazards. Having a plan to deal with damages is important for your safety and the cleanup of your home.

The first thing you should do after a storm, is to take precaution when assessing the situation. Look for structural damage and broken items on the property that may be dangerous. It is important to note any smells of gas, and shut off the main line if you notice a leak. Microbial growth can also happen within 24 hours of water damage. 

Once you know the severity of the damages, make sure to document everything as is with multiple photos for your local restoration provider and insurance. This will help to assure that you are fully compensated for the mitigation and restoration process. 

After you have contacted your insurance provider, give SERVPRO of West Greenville County a call at (864)292-8570. We are Faster to Any Disaster, and available 24/7. 

Storm Damage in Greenville, SC

11/27/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of West Greenville County helps out every year when large storms sweep over the coast of the United States. These storms are severely damaging and the damage often happens quickly. However, right here in the Upstate of South Carolina, we experience heavy rains and thunderstorms year round. Sometimes the water damage that local homes and businesses suffer are long term and go unnoticed. When experience heavy rains and winds, it is important to check areas of your home to make sure no water damage has occurred. SERVPRO of West Greenville County wants to help teach you where to look for water damage.

Make sure to check your exterior, including windows, doors and roof for damage. Windows that are not properly installed may cause leaking and damage to the surrounding walls. Roofs are the brunt of any storm and missing shingles, holes, and leaks are signs to look for of water damage. Any HVAC unit that is on the outside of your home is also subject to damage from strong winds. 

Not all storm damage is apparent right away, so checking these few things after a storm can help prevent prolonged water damage to your home or business. Give us a call at (864)-292-8570 for our mitigation services!

Winter Weather Heading to Greenville, SC

11/12/2021 (Permalink)

This weekend will bring in some early winter weather, expecting temperatures as low as 34. Low temperatures can be the cause of a water loss in your home or business. SERVPRO of West Greenville County has a few tips that could help you keep your home safe from disaster. The first thing you can do to prevent water damage from the colder weather, is to prevent frozen pipes. Pipes in your crawl space, outside walls, and attic are most susceptible to freezing.

Lastly, make sure that you check your water supply line before the winter weather comes.

As you can see, there are many ways to help prevent water damage in your home or business this winter. If disaster does strike, SERVPRO of West Greenville County is open 24/7 to help mitigate the problem.

While there is a science to how our production member place drying equipment based of level of saturation and materials affected, there are some general guidelines to look at to help choose the right course of action.

  • Place enough air movers to create airflow across all wet surfaces and to maintain a balance between drying equipment.
  • The number of air movers placed, depends on the situation
  • Consider the surface being dried:
    • Floors, Carpets, Walls, Ceilings, Under Cabinets, Etc.

Summer Thunderstorm Safety

7/6/2021 (Permalink)

In the Upstate the summer is packed with many thunderstorms due to high humidity. Thunderstorms can be dangerous because they include heavy rain, lightning, and high winds. They can even go on to produce tornadoes, causing damage to local homes and businesses. A thunderstorm is considered severe when it contains large hail and/or damaging straight-line winds of 58 miles per hour or greater.

These types of storms can cause great damage to any home or business, but more importantly can pose a threat to your safety! There are some safety tips to help keep you safe during summer thunderstorms.

  • Avoid unnecessary travel
  • Get into basement if available or the lowest level of your home/ business
  • Stay away from doors or windows

It is extremely important to know what to look for and understand what thunderstorm warnings may mean. For example, a thunderstorm watch means that the conditions are right for a thunderstorm to develop, whereas a thunderstorm warning means that there have been storms spotted around your area in the radar. Keeping up with the forecast can help keep you prepared for any disaster.

To better prepare your business for possible damages, SERVPRO of West Greenville County has a team ready to set up an Emergency Readiness Plan at any time. Our production crew is available 24/7 for any damage a summer thunderstorm may have on your home or business.

We hope that this information will help prepare our local community for any storms that may roll through this summer season. Being prepared is the first step, but if damages do occur, we at SERVPRO of West Greenville County can be your second step into getting your home or business back to preloss condition!

Busted water pipe in ceiling Busted water pipe in ceiling

This South Carolina home suffered major water damage to both floors of their home when a water pipe busted due to freezing temperatures. The customer was out of town when the pipe busted and came home to significant water damage due to continuous water running. After the customer turned off the water to the home, they called a plumber to fix the issue and then called SERVPRO of West Greenville County out to extract all of the standing water. Once all of the standing water had been extracted, it was clear that the ceilings, walls, and flooring were all affected beyond the help of our drying equipment. Our production crew started demolition right away to remove all affected contents. The customers were extremely happy that although the majority of affected contents needed to be removed, SERVPRO of West Greenville County was able to preserve their ceiling to floor custom bookshelves. After just a few days of drying equipment placed on subfloor and wall studs, the homeowners are ready to get started on reconstruction.

Storm Preparation

3/17/2021 (Permalink)

The upstate of South Carolina is expecting some severe weather Thursday March 18th, 2021 as a large storm makes its way east from the Mid-West. Local news outlets are reporting that, “this area has not been under a ‘very high risk’ like this since April 5th, 2017.” Our area of the upstate will experience high winds, heavy rains, large hail, and possibly even tornadoes. It is important that you have a plan for you and your family should a tornado touch down near your home or place of work, but you should also prepare your home for possible water damages. In order to do this, there are a number of steps you can take.

  • Seal off basement area
  • Secure items outside, such as garbage cans and outdoor furniture.
  • Make sure all outside items left behind are secure.
  • Clean the gutters on your home and storm drains near your house.

Doing any of these things ahead of bad weather can help eliminate damage to your home. If you do suffer any damages during the storm that is approaching, you can call SERVPRO of West Greenville County to help clean and repair any damages. SERVPRO of West Greenville County (864)-292-8570!!

African Dust Allows Less Storms to Form

9/19/2019 (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. Part of Hurricane season is still upon us, but hopefully the African dust will continue to prevent some storms from forming.

Call SERVPRO today if you experience storm damage.

Summer Storm Damage

7/26/2019 (Permalink)

Moisture and warm air are crucial for a thunderstorm to occur, which is why more storms occur in the summer. There are almost 16 million thunderstorms each year and most last about 30 minutes. With summer in full swing, we are beginning to experience more and more thunderstorms. A storm has the potential to damage your home and cause flooding.

Storm and flood damage requires specialized restoration techniques and equipment, and SERVPRO of West Greenville County has both of those. SERVPRO of West Greenville County is a 24 hour emergency restoration service and can respond at any time to your storm damage.

Total Solar Eclipse in Greenville, SC

8/4/2017 (Permalink)

On August 21st we wish for no storms in sight and clear skies as Greenville, SC experiences the total solar eclipse. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon moves in between the sun and earth. This total solar eclipse is extremely rare because it is the first time the path of totality exclusively will cross the United States from coast to coast in 99 years. It also is only crossing the United States, and this is the first time a total solar eclipse is visible from coast to coast of the United States and no other country in 241 years. 

The eclipse is expected to pass through Greenville around 2:38 PM and will last approximately two minutes and thirty seconds. The state of South Carolina could have anywhere from 500,00 visitors to 2 million visitors. 

In order to view the eclipse you need eclipse glasses certified by ISO. The only moment when it is safe to watch the total solar eclipse without safety glasses is when the moon completely blacks out the sun. 

There are multiple events happening in Greenville, SC to watch the total solar eclipse and SERVPRO of West Greenville County can't wait to attend a few of them! Let's hope the sky is clear and there aren't any storms that occur on August 21st in Greenville, SC. Be sure to experience this once in a life time opportunity and watch the total solar eclipse!!
