Are you afraid you might have water damage in your home or business?

7/28/2021 (Permalink)

Here are some signs of water damage.

  • Do you feel any unusual dips or soft spots while walking? 
  • Has there been an increase in your water bill?
  • Is there an unpleasant smell or increased humidity?
  • Do you hear sounds of water? 
  • Are you noticing dark spots?
  • Is there cracking, bubbling or flaking? 

If you observe any of these signs, it is important to take care of it immediately to avoid more damage. If you wait to respond more damage can occur costing you more to fix it. Whether you are doing the work yourself or hiring a water damage contractor, start repairing the damage as soon as possible. 

If you observe these signs, call SERVPRO of Allentown and Western Lehigh County to inspect the property. During our inspection, we will provide the customer with the next step to address the concern. We are able to use our specialized equipment to properly dry out your property.

Fires can be devastating to you and your family. Here are some tips for fire safety:

  • Install smoke alarms on every level of your home. 
  • Make sure to change the batteries of the smoke detectors. 
  • Always practice your escape plan with your family, including your pets. 
  • If a fire occurs, escape your house as soon as possible and never go back inside for anything or anyone. 
  • Don’t leave burning candles unattended. 
  • Secure your wires out of sight of your pet, as you do not want them to mistake them for a chew toy. 

According to the American Red Cross, the leading cause of a fire is cooking fires. Always be mindful when you are cooking. You should always stay in the kitchen when you are cooking, such as frying, grilling or broiling food.

At this event, we interacted with our community while handing out waste bag dispensers. 

In addition, we are involved in the Chamber’s committee. We are happy to be active in the Chamber of Commerce and looking forward to attending upcoming events.

SERVPRO of Western Lehigh County is here for you, your loved ones and your home. We know storms can be devastating and leave you with nothing. We want to take the time to share some information about what to do when you are experiencing a storm. 

What to Do After a Hurricane

Find your loved ones. ...

Don't go home until it's safe. ...

Document the damage. ...

Contact your insurance company. ...

Apply for assistance. ...

Stay out of the water. ...

Prevent further damage. ...

Listen to local clean up news and advisories.

Standard homeowners policies cover wind damage. So, if hurricane winds or tornadoes wreck your home, you should be OK. However, if a storm surge or flood carries off your house, a standard policy won't make you whole. You'll still have a mortgage if your house is destroyed by flooding.

Fill your bathtub with water, unless you have little children. This water can be used for drinking, washing, and flushing the toilet. Water supplies are often compromised by hurricanes and either become undrinkable or stop flowing.

Stay Safe After a Hurricane or Other Tropical Storm

Stay out of floodwater.

Never use a wet electrical device.

If the power is out, use flashlights instead of candles.

Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

Be careful near damaged buildings.

Stay away from power lines.

Protect yourself from animals and pests.

Drink safe water. Eat safe food.

If you have no flood insurance, FEMA's IHP grant will help you in a specific set of ways after a flood or other disaster. ... This is much less coverage than NFIP flood insurance, which covers up to $250,000 to repair or replace your home and belongings.

Once the storm clears, call SERVPRO of Western Lehigh County to help you!
