Flue safety

12/27/2017 (Permalink)

The season is here for alternative heating.

Be extra careful when using your heating system using wood or other material for burning. Many people use wood for alternate heat and it is usually safe.

Some tips:

Be sure your flue is clear of soot creosote build-up. This material in the flue can ignite and cause a flue fire which can cause a hot fire somewhere in the flue. Devices or a service company can be used to clean your flue.

Have an area around your loading door that is tile or fire brick so when the door is open, sparks will not land on flammable surfaces.

Regularly check the furnace for proper seals on all doors and flue connections to be sure smoke is being vented outside.

Be safe when saving money by burning wood.

What is De-Lamination?

12/21/2017 (Permalink)

Water damage can cause wood warping, mold on materials and carpet damage.

When carpets get damaged it can become stained or molded if certain types of water get soaked in. Another type of damage is where the backing starts coming away from the main carpet weave. This is called de-lamination. It basically separates the back from the top.

Carpets cant be stretched back in place when this happens. So another reason to get the water dried fast, is it can sometimes stop carpet from de-laminating.

Continuing Education Class for Insurance Agents

Community Continuing Education Class for Insurance Agents Brian's being observed as a new instructor. Great Job Brian!

Our November 16, 2017 CE class went well. We had around 20 attend the course on Fire Restoration.

After the class we heard wonderful comments about the class material. Some comments went like this:

- I didn't know that you shouldn't touch soot covered items. This could cause permanent discoloration!

- The video of the actual fire and how things spread give me a whole new perspective on fires and how the cleaning company must deal with it.

- The insured will always want to gather things and clean things but that's not what should be done.

- That was the best overall class I have attended!.

I would like to say thanks for all the kind words I have heard and we will be sure to have another one soon.

Thanks for the Hannibal Knights of Columbus for allowing us to use the meeting room. K of C 907 in Hannibal.

Mold Remediation

Mold Remediation Mold Remediation MOLD MOLD MOLD!

Mold remediation is a custom service requiring expertise in cleaning. We at SERVPRO of Hannibal have the training, equipment and experience to find the source and keeping it from coming back.

Mold in some form is everywhere. When it is allowed to grow rapidly and release spores is when problems start.

Many molds are good. They raise our bread, they produce mushrooms, they make some cheeses really tasty.. Were not concerned with those.

In your home, if you have wet, and heat in the right proportions you can have excessive mold, then spores released. 

First you need to find the source of the moisture and fix it. Then you need to figure out if the mold you have can be stopped in place, or if the growth has gone too far. This may require tear out of some material like walls or trim or wood.

Don't chance it on your own, call your local expert at SERVPRO of Hannibal at:573-231-0056
