Although finding a company capable of handling water removal from a factory of any size or warehouse may seem difficult, we at SERVPRO know we can handle any water removal and restoration projects in the area. We handle water removal from large buildings without trouble. If you still have doubts, here are a few of the techniques we use to dry the place out thoroughly and quickly.

Water Extraction
When a water removal project from a factory or warehouse calls for extraction of standing water, many companies do not know where to begin. Even worse, some may begin the extraction process under-equipped and poorly prepared, and may not remove water from the premises in time to prevent some of the worst damage from happening. We use truck-mounted extraction pumps to remove standing water as quickly as necessary, bringing in additional trucks as needed to make sure the building gets drained before damage can get any worse.

Fast Drying
Once standing water has been cleared, we can begin the process of drying the area out and eliminating moisture that has already penetrated into materials in the building and stored objects. By creating air currents throughout the building, we can pick up water droplets on a large scale before depositing them in buckets via our fast-acting dehumidifying technology.

Care for Contents
Depending on what you have stored in the warehouse, we may have to use special preventative measures to protect the building's contents. If they present a safety hazard when mixed with water, be sure to let us know so that our technicians can don adequate personal protective equipment.

SERVPRO provides industry-leading care for our commercial customers in the aftermath of a disaster and has the resources required to handle even the largest projects.

PREVENTATIVE

Regularly checking for leaks, drips and cracks in your water pipes is the best preventative measure you can take. The next step is to educate yourself and any others around your property about the dangers of water damage and what to do if it does happen. This includes everyone learning how to properly cut off the water supply throughout the home or building.

IMPORTANCE

Water pipe damage per minute:

A ½ inch pipe can spill up to 50 gallons a minute

A 1-inch pipe can spill up to 210 gallons a minute

Even a small broken pipe can cause more damage than many of us realize. It is important to prevent, then minimize any damage that happens. The longer it sits, the worse it gets.

With the housing market is booming, we have been getting many calls regarding carpet cleanings! Did you know that regular cleanings can not only make your carpets look clean and tidy, but also last longer? When selling a home, that is one of the first things that the potential buyer will look at. When buying a home, many home owners want their carpets cleaned before move in.

As the owner, doing regular maintenance including vacuuming, spot removal, and shifting furniture around to prevent permanent carpet denting is a key to helping prevent damage. If there is build up and wear to the carpets, it can often times require a professional cleaning. As a home or business owner, a good rule of thumb is to make a yearly appointment to get a cleaning done.  

SERVPRO of Butler, Hopkins, Ohio, Muhlenberg and Edmonson Counties is proud to be a provider of this service. Big or small, home or business, give us a call for a free quote!

Of all the services we provide, there is one that is often hard to talk about: Biohazard. This is a service that many never think about until they are in the situation to need the services for themselves or someone that is close to them. Some people may try to clean this up themselves, but it is best to always hire a trained professional to take care of the issue.

  • Because it is traumatic: When it is a personal connection, it is emotionally taxing to clean up the area when it is a traumatic loss.
  • Because it is safer: Any type of fluids from human’s or animal, or their remains (including blood, feces, vomit) are all considered biohazard. That means that they could carry life threatening pathogens to the person cleaning up the area or even just exposed. When working with life threatening pathogens, it is important to remove and dispose of this waste properly, in a trained manner. SERVPRO of Butler, Hopkins, Ohio, Muhlenberg and Edmonson Counties has completed all of the proper trainings, including being registered and compliant with OSHA and FEMA guideline to clean up any type of biohazard.

If you have any questions about this service, give us a call.

Each month we focus on a different aspect of SERVPRO to educate the public about. With the major damage that recently hit Texas and other surrounding states, we wanted to touch base on what SERVPRO does as a whole when an area is rocked like so many families and business owners were.

When an area is hit with this much damage, SERVPRO Franchises from all over the country travel to help the local franchises that may need a little extra backup. We are proud to say that our very own crews often travel and help! We have had crews in Katy, Texas for going on 4 weeks without a break. While these weeks may be tiring for our crews, it is well worth it to see the before and after. Knowing we help lift the stress from these home and business owners’ shoulders is a big motivator.

While Kentucky was not impacted this time, it could be us next. This is an example of how no matter the size, SERVPRO has your back. If it is too big for us to handle, we can lend a hand and have help shipped in. Our goal is to make your disaster “Like it never even happened.”
