During the fall and winter months in the east coast, most people think about the beautiful weather and the holiday season. These are the months were you can take a sigh of relief knowing storm season has come to a close right? I mean I wouldn't relax just quite yet! 

To most of us we are told storm season begins early May ending on November 30. Don't ever limit yourself in an area were storms can happen at any moment. Hurricanes can happen at any moment were humidity is very high. While this scenario is still very rare, but can happen in the winter and spring months. For example the last hurricane to hit was Hurricane Alex in January of 2016. 

Just remember, while winter and spring months come around always make sure you have a plan in place just in case. If you don't call us here at SERVPRO Of North Sarasota, and let us help you create an Emergency Readiness Plan! Call us at (941) 365-4614 as we are always here to help! 

Don't let old appliances wash away your wallet!

10/26/2019 (Permalink)

As homeowners, you know how expensive and stressful it is to buy new appliances. It gets too expensive to a point where keeping your old washing machine can help you save money. However, that is not always the best way to go. 

Yes, buying new appliances are very expensive, but this may be the best option. Holding on too your old appliance is nice, but the problems with it just might be twice the cost. Appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators, and even dish washers are a big reason for water damages. 

The way these types of appliances cause water damages is from the back or inside the appliance itself. If a sensor or pipes starts to get rusty, not only can you see an overflow of suds, but even water everywhere in your house. If you want to keep your old appliance then go ahead, but make sure you keep an eye on it, or that new washing machine may cost 3 times more than you wanted.

Injectidry's High Pressure drying systems are specifically developed to target high risk areas of hidden moisture such as: walls and ceilings, even those coated with watertight finishes like PVA paint and vinyl wallpaper coverings, double-sheeted fire walls, party walls, sound barriers, insulation, walls behind cabinets and fixtures and floors. Active Hoseline allows the setup to be safer during the drying process. The blue tape you see on the walls is marking where the moisture levels were taken. The levels of moisture were documented during the drying procedure so the technicians know when the wet areas are dry. The system is set up to blow air through the small injectors into the wall cavities. Air scrubbers are used in the room to keep the air clean while drying.
