2017 Amory Chili Fest

2017 Amory Chili Fest

We were honored to finally participate in the 2017 Amory Chili Fest this year! We were one of 30 participants. Our "Proofs in the Pilsner" chili recipe didn't win us a trophy but we had a great time as "Team SERVPRO." We were there among many other vendors including banks, insurance companies, and other local businesses. We had the opportunity to meet many local residents and share the everything SERVPRO has to offer. We look forward to participating in the Chili Fest again next year.

We got more participation out of this social media contest than ever before with over 2000 votes! 

Water Damage Turns Into Mold Job

Water Damage Turns Into Mold Job

The cabinets had to be taken out in-order to ensure that the mold could be completely extracted from the walls and the infestation stopped. The kitchen was fully cleaned, as well as the mold was successfully remediated. 

Water Damage Can Be Deceptive

Water Damage Can Be Deceptive

Water damage can be deceptive. Water penetrates into structural cavities creating trapped pockets of saturation. The detection of water in these areas can often only be discovered with sophisticated moisture detection meters. Undetected moisture will continue to cause damage. This damage, at a minimum, will cause odors. Greater damage will surface when materials delaminate, shrink, split and further deteriorate to where costly repairs are required.

Mold in Abandoned Home

Mold in Abandoned Home

This picture shows an abandoned house that suffered severe mold infestations throughout the kitchen and an adjoining room. We had donned our HAZMAT clothing and gear before we started the demolition of these rooms. After tossing the cabinets, fixtures, and drywall down to the studs, we began the mold remediation with our equipment and products.

Hurricane Sandy hits the New York

Hurricane Sandy hits the New York

The Storm Damage Team from SERVPRO of Tupelo helps local franchises in New York following the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. As you can see this home was badly damaged by rising flood waters from a nearby river. River water or ground water entering a structure from a flood must be considered grossly contaminated. 

Generally, storm flooding requires that affected porous materials inside a home or building must be removed.  Less porous, or non-porous surfaces, such as concrete floors and the studs can usually be saved and cleaned to a sanitary condition.

Bedroom Fire Safety

Bedroom Fire Safety

Bedrooms are where fires often start. More than 600 lives were lost due to fire that started in the bedroom. Common causes of these fires are electrical devices that were left unattended. These are just some basic reminders to keep you safe.

  • Children are at a higher risk for deaths caused by bedroom fires. They are prone to playing with matches. In their bedroom, minimize materials that are easily combustible. Inform your child of the dangers of playing with fire.
  • Do not plug cords near beds. Do not trap cords near the wall or place them under carpets. Also, do not leave laptops on your bed.
  • Never smoke in bed – No matter how conscious you are.

Bedroom fire safety is not difficult. Giving attention to small details can make a big impact, and will give you safety and peace of mind. Emergency preparedness and knowledge of fire safety are a must in order to protect your family.

What To Do in the Event of an Electrical Fire?

What To Do in the Event of an Electrical Fire?

In case of an electrical fire, make sure you do not use water to put out the fire. If the fire is small and you see something starting to smoke and catch on fire, turn off the circuit at the breaker, if its plugged into a wall then unplug and use a fire extinguisher to put out any flames. If no appropriate fire extinguisher is available, you can also use baking soda to extinguish an electrical fire. Typically, an overloaded circuit will flip a breaker. If you know a circuit is being overloaded but the breaker didn't trip, if you can safely do so, you should turn off the breaker yourself or flip the main breaker to the whole house. If you have had a fire, find an electrician to evaluate what you'll need to do to prevent another fire from occurring.

How Does Mold Grow?

How Does Mold Grow?

Mold is a really big bother and not only some of the time but all of the time. Mold grows on an abundance of things but it seeks MOISTURE, WARMTH, and FOOD, and all three conditions are necessary for it to grow. Mold is most likely to find a place to grow in a bathroom, basement or kitchen, but it can grow in other rooms if conditions are favorable.

TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) – The opening of the new Tupelo Police Department is expected to be delayed further following a fire sprinkler malfunction.

A crew was testing the building’s fire sprinkler system in preparation for the opening. That’s when a leak occurred to an isolated part of the second floor, damaging the walls, carpet and furniture.

 

The water then leaked down to the first floor causing damage.

Police say the rest of the building is fine.

The clean-up service SERVPRO is at the scene now to assess the damage and clean up.
