A Season of Giving

Visiting our local Blessing Boxes

It's never too early to embrace the spirit that comes along during the season of giving. As we eagerly anticipate the festive season, let's not forget our community members in need. Consider donating canned goods to local food pantries and donation boxes within the coming weeks. We stopped by one of many local pantries and filled it up with a few essentials. And because every member of our community matters, we left a few snacks for our furry friends too!Join us in making this holiday season a little brighter for everyone. Together, we can make a difference and spread the joy of giving. Let's ensure that #LikeItNeverEvenHappened applies to hunger as well.

The water was able to creep into the cinder block wall, which was improperly sealed with paint, and it took a few extra days to get this room to dry out. SERVPRO of Winston Salem North can help with all types of water damage, big and small!

Bad Wiring is Bad News

Never Forget, Electricity started to be main stream in the 1880s, and some of the very first homes in Winston Salem were built in the 1900s.

Updating your Electrical wiring should be on the very first steps in your new home. Most Modern Electrical Appliances and Lighting fixtures require a higher voltage and grounding outlet.

Winston Salem medical offices require SERVPRO of Winston Salem North to use extra special care

Most Small Medical Offices are locally owned and operated, and like any other small business a catastrophic event could severely damage their livelihood.  An extra level of care and concern is always exercised at any medical office because of the high tech and state-of-the-art equipment.  A great way to stay ahead of any disasters is to give us a call about our Emergency Readiness Program, Free of charge, to help mitigate any future damages.

A Commercial Emergency Readiness Plan

A Large Tree has fallen into a home, it has settled into the bedroom, lots of debris is covering the area.

Last year we had a lot of trees fall on homes

According to OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration), more people are killed by falling trees every year (100+) than are killed by sharks (about 4-7 per year).

If you’re in the house when a tree falls, leave the house and the property as soon as possible. Beware of downed electrical lines, and if you have gas lines, do not use your cell phone to call for help until you are away from the house. Use the safest route possible to get away from the house.

While we hope you never experience a tree falling into your home, we do know we are ready to help you restore it in the event of one. Just give us a call any time  24/7 we are always here to help.

Flood Water has entered a home , coming in at the bottom of a door that has had it's water resistant weather barrier damaged

Flash Flooding can cause damage by backyard entry door

The bottom weatherstrip (or door sweep) on the exterior doors were worn out after eight (or more) years of daily use. Most people notice the problem when wind driven rainwater leaks under the door. The weatherstrip needs to be snug against the door threshold for a good seal and it wears out over time as the door is opened and closed.

Sadly, this homeowner had to learn the hard way, that it needed to be replaced. While they were not affected by the flooded river, the amount of rain that came down crept under his door and into his house.

Black stove that caught fire and melted the microwave that was mounted above it.

Stove and Microwave Damage from Fire

To save time, money, and space, most new kitchens have started mounting microwaves above ranges. It helps with counter space, doubles as a range hood and venting for stove. While this is a fabulous idea, it can cause quite an issue when the stove catches fire. As you can see in the photo, the heat and flames from the fire, cause the microwave to start melting, causing more damage and mess.

Wherever the smoke from the fire reached, it carried soot with it. There is different types of soot , that requires a professional eye to know the proper way to clean and restore the damage.

Kitchen Fire in Winston Salem, NC

Home fires are more likely to start in the kitchen than any other room in the home.  Fire extinguishers are a great tool, but like any tool you need to learn how to use them properly and safely. I highly suggest having a small one to use in your kitchen to help with any fire that might happen. 

Large water puddle in restroom over drain that isn't working

Large water puddle in bathroom

People tend to be less respectful of commercial bathrooms than those in their own home. Bits of paper towel, food and dirt can clog a commercial drain and cause the water to drain slowly or not at all. This paints an unprofessional picture of your business, which could have a negative effect on the way your customers perceive you.

Dishwasher door seal failure caused water and mold damage.

If you've noticed water pooling infront of your dishwasher, it could be the #1 most common issue in kitchens. The dishwasher has a damaged or deteriorated door seal, also known as a tub gasket, they wear out over time, and will need to be replaced every so often. Water usually leaks from the lower sides of the door if there is a breach in the seal. Over time, it will cause your flooring to deteriorate, and mold to grow underneath your cabinets.

Water pooling in commercial basement after flash flooding

When flash flooding occurs, the water will travel the path of least resistance. Unfortunately, that might be the stairs to the conference room in the newly refinished basement.  This water has no where to go, it will sit there until it evaporates. The water will ruin the pad and carpet, causing discoloration and mold growth.

Rain water and mold damage from severe storm

Rain water passes through the atmosphere before falling to the ground, so it can pick up any contaminants in the air. Mold spores are one of the most common rain water containments.  If a storm causes damage to your roof or drainage system, it's best to get the professionals at SERVPRO of Winston-Salem North, a call to dry out and remove any water, before the mold has a chance to take root.

When you have a  step crack in a cinder block foundation it allows water to seep into a building at a slow, but steady rate. If a commercial basement isn't regularly inspected,   the water will creep in and allow mold to grow at a steady pace.

Water Extraction is one of the crucial roles we fulfill in a commercial water damage event. If any moisture is left behind it will create a hospitable environment for mold growth.

Safety First

We take safety seriously here at SERVPRO of Winston-Salem North. Keeping our technicians out of harms way is just as important as educating them on the dangers of not wearing personal protective equipment on certain jobs. To ensure that our techs are properly protected, we perform a Respiratory Fit Test. Here you can see what they must complete in order to pass the Fit Test. In the top left, the technician makes sure he has a good seal. The bottom left, he is introduced to an odor inside the hood that he can taste. In the big picture, if the respirator is properly fitted, once the odor is introduced into the hood again, he will not be able to taste it. 

Disaster Hiding Behind the Wall

Here, we see the cause of a 8 room water disaster. This nail was put in the wall, when the home owner bought the home 10 years earlier. From the moment that nail went into the wall, the disaster clock was counting down. No way the Home Owner could have avoided this. That nail sat in the water line until finally it rusted enough that the head broke off and a small spray of water began. Unfortunately, the Home Owners were out of town and that spray ran for a week behind the wall, flooding 8 rooms on two floors. What a surprise they must've encountered when they returned home. At least they knew who to call. Our team of professionals came to the rescue. They mitigated the water loss using the science of drying. 

The Science of Drying

In this picture, you can see how the technician has placed the low profile air movers in a pattern that allows for maximum air circulation that aids in the rate of evaporation. Our Low Grain Refrigerant Dehumidifier sets just off to the side pulling the moisture from the air. 

Water Extraction

Here a technician is extracting water from carpet that is being removed. This creates a lighter debris load thus saving the techs back. It also cuts down on weight in the dumpster making it more fuel efficient for the truck taking it to the landfill. 

Soot Clean Up

In this picture we have two technicians cleaning soot from a clients home. Notice the protectant on the floor. One tech is using a wet cleaning method while the other appears to be dry cleaning the door.
