SERVPRO of Brunswick was happy to help local first responders in Glynn County by sanitizing emergency response vehicles. 

Our first responders are always on the front line responding to calls and coming into contact with a lot of unknown. To give them peace of mind SERVPRO of Brunswick offered a free wipe down and sanitation service of all emergency vehicles.

Our team was able to wipe down the interior of fire trucks, police cars, and ambulances. It was such a small act- but we hope the first responders know how much we care and respect them being on the front lines for us every day.

Church Experiences Large Water Damage

4/26/2020 (Permalink)

Recently our SERVPRO of Brunswick team responded to an urgent call at a local church. The distressed caller spoke about water continuously flowing into the church and standing water of nearly a foot throughout. 

When our crews arrived we found the main water supply line broke in the wall. Our SERVPRO crew members were able to locate the shutoff valve to eliminate more water from intruding the church.

With all hands on deck, our SERVPRO crews worked hard to remove all of the water and moisture from the church and restored this property to preloss conditions. We were graciously told, “SERVPRO was a blessing in such a mess”. We truly take pride in helping our customers, our neighbors recover after any disaster. SERVPRO of Brunswick is always here to help.

Commonly Missed Cleaning Spaces in The Home

3/30/2020 (Permalink)

Any disaster leaves great destruction in its wake. This is why it is important to clean up once normalcy returns. Thorough cleaning of your home will help you get rid of any items that pose health and safety hazards. If you are to ensure that your space is clean, it is important to be aware of the commonly missed cleaning locations around the home.

Beneath the fridge

While most people focus on making sure that the inside of their fridge is clean, do you know how much dirt can accumulate beneath the appliance? Proper home maintenance requires that you move your fridge and clean this area to prevent a buildup of bacteria and dirt.

Under large pieces of furniture

Since it takes a lot of time and effort to move large and bulky pieces of furniture, there is a good chance you will not clean the area when wiping your floor. As a result, dust is known to accumulate in this area, a factor associated with being unclean. If you want to make your work easier, you should clean such areas regularly.

Light switches, doorknobs, and handles

These areas of your home are touched on a daily basis. Wiping them will prevent the spread of bacteria and germs.

Under the couch cushions

Some of your activities while at home will result in dirt and debris accumulating in unexpected areas. If you are fond of snacking on the couches, crumbs can buildup underneath the cushions, compromising the cleanliness of your home.

Interior doors

While this area is commonly missed when cleaning, your interior doors attract both dirt and dust over time. This is why experts recommend that you have them cleaned at least once every month. Make sure that the door frames are also wiped if you want to leave your home feeling fresh and welcoming.

Window blinds

Home maintenance is all about making sure that the overall cleanliness of your space is observed and maintained. Window blinds cover a large area, making it easy for dust to accumulate on them. Since this makes it hard to clean them, you should consider hiring the services of a cleaning company such as SERVPRO of Brunswick.

Keeping your home clean does not end with the clean-up exercise. It is a daily routine that requires commitment from all family members. Enhancing the comfort you enjoy at home will also involve making repairs in case of defects.

Flash Floods!

3/25/2020 (Permalink)

Flash Flood Warning-- the alert that many of us dread because of the concerns that our homes will be affected by it. SERVPRO of Brunswick understands that your home is more than a structure: it's your family’s furniture, clothing, keepsakes, and other belongings that help transform your house into a home.

Here are some helpful suggestions on how to protect your property when disaster happens.

 How to Protect Your Property:

  • Keep insurance policies, documents, and other valuables in a safe-deposit box. Keep them in a place where it's least likely to be damaged by a flood.
  • Install check valves in building sewer traps to prevent floodwater from backing up into drains of your home. 
  • Seal walls in basements with waterproofing elements to avoid leakage through cracks.

Prevent the Spread of Mold

3/25/2020 (Permalink)

Here are some mold prevention tips for your home:

  • LOOK FOR LEAKS: Leaks and flooding aftermath need to be cleaned up and dried as soon as possible to prevent water damage and mold growth. Keep an eye open for stains on ceilings and walls - telltale signs of leaks that are happening behind the scenes. Keep rain gutters clean and in good repair, and make sure water is properly diverted from the foundations and low-lying areas of your house.
  • KEEP THINGS DRY: Mold grows where it’s wet and will take over in 24-48 hours. Even leaving wet items lying around the house, such as beach towels and swimsuits, can create a problem. Hang things up to dry.
  • MAINTAIN PROPER VENTILATION: Make sure your living areas are properly ventilated. Any appliances that produce moisture need to be vented to the outdoors. Using a dehumidifier is always a good idea; today’s energy-efficient homes can actually hold moisture indoors, so monitoring the humidity levels in your home will help you keep the atmosphere healthy.
  • MOLD-RESISTANT PRODUCTS: Anytime you do repairs or renovations, use mold-resistant products such as drywall or sheetrock; many paints on the market today contain mold inhibitors, as well. These paints are especially good for use in bathrooms and laundry areas, for example, where humidity levels will probably be the highest in the home.
  • HOUSEPLANTS: Mold is apt to grow on houseplants, so keep leaves clean and dry by wiping down leaves periodically.

In the event that a mold problem has developed in your home, you can contact us here at SERVPRO of Brunswick for help. Our phone number is (912) 264-6094. We are experienced in cleanup projects needed after fire or water damage.

Our Quick Response Saves You Money!

3/24/2020 (Permalink)

Our SERVPRO of Brunswick team recently responded to a kitchen fire that ignited a sprinkler system on the 3rd floor of a local apartment complex. Our team arrived before sunrise and was able to begin immediate water extraction. The sprinkler system did a great job putting out the fire causing minimal fire damage; however, the water from the sprinkler system soaked through 3 floors of the building leaving standing water in a few of the rooms.

SERVPRO of Brunswick wasted no time in restoring this property from soot, water, and smoke damage. Our highly trained technicians began an immediate plan of action to prevent further damage by extracting all of the standing water. After our teams extracted as much water as possible, we then used our drying technologies to dry out the affected rooms and materials.

Our highly trained crews have the specialized equipment and resources to handle the job, large or small, residential and/or commercial. If you are dealing with fire damage, count on the experienced team at SERVPRO of Brunswick.
