Be storm ready!

Approximately 98 percent of all presidentially declared disasters are weather-related, leading to around 500 deaths per year and nearly $15 billion in damage. Knowing your risk of severe weather, taking action and being an example are just a few steps you can take to be better prepared to save your life and assist in saving the lives of others.

Know Your Risk. The first step to becoming weather-ready is to understand the type of hazardous weather that can affect where you live and work, and how the weather could impact you, your business and your family. Check the weather forecast regularly, obtain a NOAA Weather Radio, and learn about Wireless Emergency Alerts. Severe weather comes in many forms and your shelter plan should include all types of local hazards.

SERVPRO to the rescue!

SERVPRO of Decatur/Forsyth is always here to help you when you need it!

Depending on the severity of your event, our SERVPRO crew has several options to extract water from your property. One of the main concerns with any water coming from the outside is the level of bacteria it may bring with it. To avoid any health consequences we remove carpeting and other porous materials and dispose of them according to environmental regulations, which keeps you and your family safer. 

Once the water is out of your property, we use air movers and dehumidifiers to restore proper moisture levels to your home. Our monitoring tools help us track our progress and confirm when we have reached the desired results. The next step is for our SERVPRO team to disinfect each surface to ensure that no bacteria or organism is left behind.

SERVPRO of Decatur/Forsyth makes it "Like it never even happened."

Mice are a pest even in warm weather

Did you ever think about mice with the changing weather?

While it is true that many mice, and other rodents, will find their way inside your home or business in the fall to find a nice, warm place to spend the winter, it is certainly not true that once the weather warms they will suddenly decide to move back outside. After all, your home is comfortable. It is warm. It is dry, and it offers easy access to food and water.

Mice do not have to worry about the predators that are outside in the big bad world just waiting for a chance to snack on them, or they don't have to worry about the spring storms, hot summer days, crisp cold fall mornings, or harsh winter. Why on earth would mice ever leave willingly? 

If you have mice they can damage your property very quickly. If you need help with the cleanup after the mice are gone we can help. SERVPRO of Decatur/Forsyth is ready to help you cleanup the mess anytime 24/7.

SERVPRO of Decatur/Forsyth offers CE classes throughout the year for all agents

It may seem unlikely for clogged gutters to cause water in your home’s basement, but it can happen and is a serious matter that should not be overlooked. Ineffective gutters can cause clogs, which can lead to overflowing gutters and subsequent damage to your residence, as well as potential flooding in the basement of your home. 

Instead of the water being directed away from your foundation it is being poured directly on your foundation. Don't let your basement fill up with water just because you didn't clean your gutters.
