Historic Flooding in Omaha.

Storm Damage Historic Flooding in Omaha. SERVPRO of Brunswick removing mud from within drywall after historic Omaha Flood in 2019

SERVPRO of Brunswick is a part of the Disaster Recovery Team that was dispatched out to Omaha, Nebraska after the snowmelt and flooding occurred in early March of 2019. This historic flood has broken the record of the last major flooding along the Missouri River back in 2011.

Our teams made the long trek from Brunswick, Georgia to Omaha, Nebraska to help business owners and homeowners recover and restore after flood damage. Unlike most of South Georgia, the Midwest had large basements that took majority of the impact from the flood. Basements were filled with 4-5 feet of water and thick mud throughout. Carpets were saturated and water drenched the walls to the point the baseboards were removing themselves.

SERVPRO of Brunswick began immediate water extraction and setting up drying equipment to preserve the home. Whichever materials where unable to dry were then removed from the home to ensure the property was not at risk of mold growth. When flooding like this occurs we look for any contaminated water that may be unsafe to be in your home (sump pump failure), and any trapped moisture that could cause mold growth. After a water damage or flooding event mold can spread throughout the home in 48 to 72 hours. As apart of the Disaster Response Team’ SERVPRO of Brunswick was able to respond quickly to each request for service!

If you experience flood damage in your coastal Georgia home contact SERVPRO of Brunswick!

Hurricane Michael

Storm Damage Hurricane Michael Crews lined up to begin restoration process after Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael was one of the strongest storms to hit the Florida Panhandle to ever be recorded. With sustained winds reaching up to 155mph while making landfall leading it to be the first ever Category 4 Hurricane to reach the Panhandle; while breaking national records for the fourth strongest storm to reach the United States.
Sadly, Hurricane Michael was a deadly storm and claimed 6 lives throughout Florida and Georgia.

As the SERVPRO of Brunswick wrapped up efforts in North Carolina after Hurricane Florence we were soon dispatched to help bring generators and other equipment to West Georgia after they were hit by Hurricane Michael.

After emergency crews cleared roadways and cleared it safe for disaster recovery crews to enter Florida the SERVPRO of Brunswick headed for Mexico Beach, Florida. We were truly heartbroken after seeing the destruction that Hurricane Michael brought onto these cities. People without homes, food, and power. We witnessed the grace of our Nation and the unity we all share when we face disaster. Tents were set up to pass out food, shelters were set up to cover those who lost their homes, people came all across the United States to lend a helping hand. The SERVPRO of Brunswick quickly sprung into action by setting up drying equipment, tarping roofs, and boarding up windows to prevent further damage.

Thank you to all of the amazing first responders like the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, National Guard, Firefighters, Police Officers, Patrolmen, Linmen, Dispatchers, EMT’s and Paramedics, Doctors, Nurses, SERVPRO Disaster Recovery Teams, and for all of the countless volunteers that gave their time to HELP.

We remain #FloridaStrong in the days ahead of the restoration and recovery process.

Top Three Storm Damage Tips

7/24/2018 (Permalink)

Summer storms can appear on the horizon quickly and can surprise you with their violence. All that water can be devastating to a home or commercial building, causing storm damage and water damage that can take a significant amount of time and expense to repair. There are several steps you can take to prepare your property for inclement weather events and possible flooding; preventive measures will reduce the amount of flood and storm damage sustained and the time it can take to get life back to normal.

  • MAINTAIN ROOFS AND GUTTERS: Well-maintained gutter systems are much better at diverting water to proper drainage areas, while a roof that is in good repair will prevent water in the interiors of your buildings. If your gutters are clogged with dead leaves and debris, rainwater can overflow and saturate the ground around the foundations causing damage there, while backed-up water can spill into wall structures. A regular cleaning schedule for your gutters is a good idea, and regular roof inspections will reveal problems quickly and allow you to repair problem areas before bad weather hits.
  • STORM DRAINS: Storm drains need to be maintained properly, as well. These are in place to move excess water away from buildings and driveways. Your local government is usually responsible for this, but keeping an eye on them around your property will allow you to be able to report a problem right away so that repairs can be made, leaving you ready for storm waters.
  • RESPONSE PLAN: Have a plan ready for work staff and loved ones. In the event of flooding, make sure you have a system in place to communicate to everyone so that they know whether to travel or not. No one should brave driving through flood waters! Listening to weather updates is a good idea, and you’ll want to make sure you keep an emergency preparedness kit on site.

Preparing Your Attic for Summer Storms

7/3/2018 (Permalink)

Summer is here, and with it comes sunshine, vacations, and freedom from school. Storms are also a part of summer, however, and can cause a lot of damage to your home and property. Inspecting your home before and after a summer storm is always a good idea, but don’t forget your attic! Your attic is one of the places in your home that you won’t visit regularly; usually, a trip up to the attic is only made when you need something you have put up for a rainy day. It’s important to check your attic area periodically for leaks and water damage after a summer storm system passes by.  

Your attic will also take the brunt of storms, right along with your roof. When the roof sustains damage such as loose or missing roofing material, you will probably see water stains in the attic, letting you know a problem is developing.

Follow these tips to help you keep on top of any damage to your attic:

  • Check your attic for damage regularly. It’s important to assess your attic space as often as you check other parts of your home. You’ll want to make sure this area isn’t holding water, which can spread to problems with your interior ceilings.
  • Check your roofing after severe summer weather. It’s crucial to check all roofing after a strong storm and/or high winds to ensure it is still intact. If there has been any damage, have it repaired immediately; some areas of the country see stormy weather pretty regularly.
  • If your attic has exterior windows, ensure that they are properly fitted and in good repair to alleviate any possible future leaks.
  • Make sure boxes, furniture, and other items that may be stored in your attic are pulled away from the walls so that you can see if and when water damage occurs. Cover these items with plastic and seal boxes well to keep your property from suffering.

Keeping Your Home Safe from Storm Damage

6/12/2018 (Permalink)

Storms can become a problem with little to no warning. Watching the news can keep us informed beforehand, but bad weather is still unpredictable, so we need to take steps to keep our homes safe from the damages that storms can cause.

Conducting an inspection of your home’s premises is vital to complete before inclement weather hits. A leaky roof or windows can be big problems during extreme conditions such as heavy rains and high winds. Do all your exterior doors and windows fit correctly, and is the weather stripping in these areas in good condition? When is the last time you took a look at your roof to see if it is storm ready?

Loose shutters and rain gutters can present a real problem in high winds, as can unstable large trees. It’s a good idea to 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 high winds.

Many homes in older cities have drainage ditches at the front of the property. Take time to inspect this area and remove debris or dirt that might obstruct the flow of water from a heavy rain. A clogged drainage ditch can cause a lot of damage by backing up and flooding your property both during or after a storm.

In the event of impending bad weather, do you have a system in place that will help you to get information to everyone? Most of us use our cell phones to communicate these days, but your cell phone service could be at risk when rough conditions hit. You might consider installing a good old-fashioned landline, just in case. If you or a family member gets stuck or injured at work or out doing errands, they may need help, so it’s vital that lines of communication stay open.

  • Never walk or drive on flooded roads or through water.
    • Call 9-1-1 if your life is threatened.
  • After a hurricane:
      • Only return to the area of your home when authorities say it is safe to do so.
  • Do not enter damaged buildings until they are inspected by qualified professionals.
    • Never walk or drive on flooded roads or through floodwaters.

A Storm Preparation Checklist for Your Business

5/15/2018 (Permalink)

Storms can happen without much warning during the season and bring with them a lot of water. All that water can be devastating to a commercial building, causing damage that can take a significant amount of time and expense to repair. There are several steps you can take to prepare your Brunswick business for storms and possible flooding; preventive measures will reduce the amount of flood damage your business sustains and the time it can take to bring your operations back to normal. Here is a checklist to help you:

  • GUTTERS: Gutter systems are in place to divert water to proper drainage areas, and they can only do a sufficient job when they are well-maintained. If your gutters are clogged with dead leaves and debris, rainwater can overflow and saturate the ground around the foundations causing damage there, while backed-up water can spill over into wall structures. That can be instrumental in allowing mold to take hold; mold can begin to grow in damp conditions in 24-48 hours! As you can see, a regular cleaning schedule for your gutters is a good idea, which is why it’s at the top of our checklist.
  • STORM DRAINS: Storm drains need to be maintained properly, as well. These are in place to move excess water away from buildings and parking areas. Your local government is usually responsible here but keeping an eye on drains around your property will help you to be able to report a problem right away.
  • EMERGENCY RESPONSE PLAN: Have a plan ready for your employees in the event of dangerous storms and flooding. Make sure you have a system in place to communicate with everyone so that they know whether to come into work or not. Listening to weather updates is essential in these circumstances, and you’ll want to make sure you keep an emergency preparedness kit on site.

SERVPRO of Brunswick is always ready to help if your business experiences storm damage. Call us with any concerns at (912) 264 6094, or visit our website: SERVPRO of Brunswick Responding to storm damage immediately can help get you back in business as soon as possible.

Avoiding Storm Damage This Spring

4/17/2018 (Permalink)

Storms in the spring-time are something you will want to be ready for. Bad weather is often unpredictable, so you will need 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 these days, 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.

How to Protect Your Brunswick Beach Home from Storm Damage

2/13/2018 (Permalink)

Most people dream of having a beach home, and you have to admit - it’s pretty awesome. The view of the waves and the dunes from the Golden Isles and the Brunswick area are always amazing and a welcome sight at the end of the day, and the fact that you can walk down to the water in seconds is always something that warms your heart.

But there are those times of the year when a beach house in the Brunswick area is a worry. Summers are idyllic, and even Spring isn’t bad, but Fall? And the hurricanes? That’s another story entirely.

To be prepared, you will need to inspect your property regularly and look for trouble spots before those stormy times come.

Over time, every house experiences damage from weather, and you want to make sure there are no loose ends to wrap up. Loose siding or shutters? How about that roof? Do your windows close properly, and do all exterior doors fit as they should? Can those shutters close the way they should to protect your windows during a storm? Strong winds can make short work of those parts of your home that are not in as good repair as they should be.

The landscaping at a beach home in the Brunswick area is usually tropical in nature, which means palm trees. And they can get pretty big! Have your trees and other vegetation been trimmed appropriately and removed if they are not doing well? During a storm, a lot of damage can be done by flying branches and palm fronds, or at the very least, they can leave you a really big mess to clean up!

Salt air is rough on beach-side houses and buildings, so keeping an eye on your property for damages is a good idea. Rotting wood on your home can become a hazard during storms if not cared for. Flying debris can break windows and severely damage cars left on the street.

The SERVPRO team of Brunswick is standing at the ready to help you with any storm damage you may have suffered, as well as working with you to prevent those damages in future. From fire damage to mold prevention, SERVPRO is a friend in need! Contact us at (912) 264 6094 or on our website: http://www.SERVPRObrunswick.com/

Tree Trimming Helps You Protect Your Home

1/23/2018 (Permalink)

Trees offer countless benefits to a home's landscape. Their appearance, shade and animal habitats are such an important and valued part of a property that many people are reluctant to remove trees. However, when tree limbs or the trees themselves become damaged or diseased due to age, invasive insects or storm damage, they can become a liability rather than an asset. The importance of including trees in a home maintenance plan can't be overstated.

Tree limbs that have died or are diseased are much more likely to cause damage to a property or home if they're ignored. Most limbs typically come crashing down during strong thunderstorms or high winds. However, it's not unheard of to have a large limb or even an entire tree fall at a random time. To help prevent these accidents from damaging your yard or, even worse, your home, it's best to cut off diseased, dying or dead limbs as soon as you identify them.

Weather events other than thunderstorms and winds can also do serious damage to trees as well. In coastal Georgia, heavy snow is a rare event, but ice storms are somewhat more common. Freezing rain that falls, even as drizzle or light rain, can do serious damage to trees due to the accumulated weight of the water which freezes on every twig and limb. The heavy weight often bends limbs and can crack or break them. If freezing rain has damaged your tree, experts recommend that you have the damage assessed and the limbs removed as soon as possible.


Damaged or diseased trees that aren't cared for as a part of routine home maintenance can bring even more disaster to your property. A tree limb that crashes through a roof or window during a storm, or topples due to icing, opens the way for rain to further damage your home's interior. If you find yourself in this situation, experts recommend that you immediately call SERVPRO of Brunswick for help with cleaning and restoring your home's interior. Whether your home has experienced storm damage, flooding or fire damage, trained SERVPRO of Brunswick restoration technicians can help you clean and restore your home.
