As a Georgia homeowner, you are no stranger to extreme weather. From heavy rainstorms and thunderstorms to extreme heat and tornadoes, you’ve seen it all. The combination of high temperatures paired with humid conditions creates the perfect opportunity for mold to establish itself in your garage.

Mold will thrive in dark, moist and unventilated places - which describes most garages. If yours is attached to your home, you may benefit from the cooler, drier air inside your home, but it will only make conditions slightly better. The best way to stay on top of a mold issue is to do regular inspections of your garage for the sights and scents that spell trouble.

If you have water damage call SERVPRO of Brunswick right away (912) 264-6094.

You will want to take a look around a day or two after extremely wet weather during the warmer months. Don’t just walk around, move a few things and look at the places where the walls join the floor, and in the corners. Check out the ceiling closely, and if the lighting is bad, you can always install better lighting or use a flashlight. Doing this on a regular basis can also keep you informed as to whether your roof or walls have experienced any issues or damage leading to leaks.

Of course, the best way to handle mold is to use preventive measures in the first place. Here are a few ideas that can help:

Keep your garage well-ventilated


Use a dehumidifier, especially during the stormy months


Make sure your garage door is properly sealed


Organize all stored items on shelves, using the floor and walls as little as possible


Don’t store cardboard in your garage


Remove any standing water immediately and dry area completely


Trim back shrubs and plants near the garage, not allowing overgrowth


Keeping an eye out for mold and practicing preventive measures is important for you as a homeowner. If you suspect that your home or business has developed a mold problem, SERVPRO of Brunswick is standing by to help. We are also experienced in cleanup after water and fire damage.

SERVPRO of Brunswick Is Ready To Help With Water Damage And Mold

6/13/2021 (Permalink)

Tub and sink are shown in a bathroom Choose the experienced team at SERVPRO of Brunswick

Everyone is aware that mold thrives on lingering moisture. Rooms that provide access to water and are not well-ventilated are in danger, and your bathroom is at the top of that list.

There is water in use in the bath area throughout the day, and of course doors and windows are shut and/or curtained. These conditions are very inviting for a colony of mold spores.

Mold can, and will, grow on numerous types of material in your bathroom, such as shower curtains, wallpaper, drywall, grout, and flooring. It is unsightly, smells bad, and can cause health effects. Once it takes hold, it is impossible to eradicate completely, so your best bet will always be to prevent it from the outset.

Here are three tips on how to prevent mold in your bathroom:

Make sure your bathroom is properly ventilated. Use the vent system and fans anytime your tub or shower is in use to keep down the moisture in the air. Leave these running for at least 30 minutes after their use is over.


Wash items in your bath regularly. Rugs should be washed and completely dried on a regular basis, while your shower/bath walls need to be wiped down and dried as often as possible. Cleansing and drying the walls and floors in the bathroom after use are also great ways to keep mold from gaining a foothold in this space! Purchasing a dehumidifier can be a really great idea, too - especially for bathrooms that see a tremendous amount of use or seem to be especially difficult to dry out.


Use mold resistant materials. Paint, flooring, and even shower curtains can all be purchased containing mold resistant materials, and these can go a long way towards keeping your bathing area mold free. Why not get a head start?
Here at SERVPRO of Brunswick, we are here for you.

The Risk Of Dying In A Residential Fire Is Cut In Half In Homes With Working Smoke Alarms

5/24/2021 (Permalink)

Smoke is shown over a black background Make sure you know how old your alarms are, and test them monthly.

Fire Damage In Brunswick 

We never think of smoke detectors, until disaster strikes. Make it a priority to maintain your smoke detectors on a regular basis so that while you are going about your daily routine, they are ready to alert you and your loved ones of danger.

Fire Fact


According to the  National Fire Protection Association, three out of five home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms.


Every bedroom and sleeping area on every level of your home needs a smoke detector, even the attic and basement.


Make sure that every unit is securely fastened to its surface, whether it is a wall or a ceiling.


When it comes to the workplace, ensure that they are installed in all areas where people spend time, from the bathroom to the warehouse.

Customer waiting areas and public restrooms need to be outfitted, as well. Stored product also needs to be protected.


Make sure you know how old your alarms are, and test them monthly.

Use the test button for this, and make sure everyone in your home or business knows what they sound like so that reaction times will be quick in the event of a fire.


Keep them clean and free of greasy build-up and dust, which could affect their performance. You can use a hand-held vacuum for this task. Place this activity on your workplace cleaning schedule to ensure that it is completed on a regular basis.


Are they hard-wired or wireless? When is the last time you replaced the batteries? Ensure that your smoke detectors are powered up and ready to go at all times.


Are your alarms interconnected? They should all go off at the same time in the event of a fire, so contact a professional to have this taken care of.
Replace all smoke detectors, including those that use 10-year batteries and hard-wired alarms before they turn 10 years old, or sooner if they don’t respond correctly when tested.


Save and follow manufacturer’s instructions for testing and maintenance of your units.
Your units should be marked by a certified inspection entity.

Heavy Wind And Rain In Brunswick


Storms in the spring-time are something you will want to be ready for. Bad weather is often unpredictable, so it is important to take steps to keep your home and business safe from storm damage.

It is a smart idea to conduct an inspection of your home or business and grounds before inclement weather hits. A leaky roof or windows can cause big problems during heavy rainfall and strong winds. Do all your exterior doors and windows fit correctly, and are they properly weather-stripped? When is the last time you took a good look at the roofing of all the buildings on your property?

These are all great questions to keep in mind.

Loose shutters and unstable large trees and bushes can be a danger in high winds. Trim back trees and bushes with large heavy branches that are not in good condition so that windows and vehicles are not in danger of storm damage in windy conditions.

Many homes in older cities have drainage ditches or creeks on the property. Take time to inspect these areas and remove debris or dirt that might obstruct the flow of water from a heavy rain. A clogged drainage ditch or creek bed can cause a lot of damage by flooding property during, or even after, a storm. Drainage can be an issue in parking areas as well, so you will want to consider sand-bagging in some instances.

Do you have a system in place that will help you to get information to everyone you care about in case of a weather emergency? Most of us use our cell phones to communicate, but in the case of a bad storm, your cell phone service could be at risk. You might consider installing a good old-fashioned landline in case area cell phone towers are damaged or go down. If you or a family member gets stuck at work or out doing errands, others will worry, so keeping those lines of communication open can keep everyone safe and worry-free.

It is important to identify what’s expected of each individual in terms of roles and responsibilities to continue production. Contact sheets for each employee should stay updated to keep clear lines of communication.


Backup Data Ahead of Time

"How often should I clean my carpet?"

At SERVPRO of Brunswick, our carpet cleaning experts receive the question about the right time to clean floor or wall-to-wall mats every other day. While the general rule is that homeowners need to clean carpets quarterly, the following circumstances can force you to increase the carpet cleaning frequency.

The odor and unpleasant sight

If your carpet suffers stains or spills often, you should ask for carpet cleaning services to restore your rug or carpet. The cleaning also ensures that the family lives in a healthy atmosphere free of allergens, dander, airborne pollutants, and microbial elements.

The Brunswick community

When the area surrounding your home or office is prone to dust accumulation. This could be because you live near a road or farm, adjust the cleaning frequency.

Heavy human traffic

Personal habits such as the failure to remove shoes at the entrance, or heavy human traffic by family or clients mean you must wash the floor mats often.

Your children and pets

Clean the carpet regularly to secure high-quality indoor air for your children and pets. Some pets shed often and that dander or dust will work its way into your HVAC. If you animals roam free throughout the home, it is wise to clean your carpets more often.

Seasonal changes

The wet and rainy seasons makes your carpets absorb moisture. High humidity levels inside the house can contribute to mold growth. Prevent needing to get rid of your carpet or rugs by asking professional SERVPRO of Brunswick carpet cleaners for dehumidifying services.

Remember the Carpets Always
