Water under the (Braga) Bridge - Fall River 02720

2/11/2020 (Permalink)

Life on the South Coast offers its residents many natural escapes, most of them involving large bodies of water. While we playfully wish we can bring the beach or the ocean with us during the hot summer months, water doesn’t take it as a joke, which can cause it to make its way to where we are depending on the ever-changing temperatures in our little corner of Massachusetts.

Of course, we don’t believe in hyperbolic statements to carry any weight — but we definitely believe water has a sneaky way of getting into our homes and surprising us when we least expect it. 

Good thing the crews at SERVPRO of Fall River are experienced in water damage restoration. Our technicians are IICRC certified and trained to clean-up after all kinds of damage — especially the ones that involve surprises. 

If you see the water that should be under the Braga Bridge is now under your feet in your home, give SERVPRO of Fall River a call. We are here to help and make it “Like it never even happened.” 

Water Damages Don't Take Vacations - Westport 02790

It can be exciting planning a February vacation. Getting away from the ordinary routine and escaping to paradise a week sounds like plenty of fun! However, you want to make sure you're coming back to the home exactly like you left it. This is why we at SERVPRO of Fall River suggest taking these precautions to keep your home safe. Below you can find tips on how to protect your vacant home. 

  • Ask a friend or family member to frequently check on your home for any possible damages.
  • Install timers that systematically turn on and off your interior/exterior lights.
  • Leave your curtains and/or window coverings as it’s normally kept.
  • Don’t forget to lock all the windows and doors, including the garage door
  • Unplug all irrelevant appliances to protect your home from an electrical fire or power surge. 
  • Consider investing in a security system with cameras for recording and viewing.
  • Shut off the main water supply valve next to your water meter. If you’ve turned off the water supply, drain your pipes of all water.
  • If your water supply remains on, have your house-sitter stop by and let water drip slowly from exterior faucets when temperatures are low. This prevents pipes from freezing and rupturing while you’re away.
  • Another preventable tip to frozen pipes is to keep your thermostat at 55 degrees or higher.

Feel free to reach out to our team at SERVPRO of Fall River for any further assistance.

Be Storm Ready, Like We Are - Fall River 02720

2/7/2020 (Permalink)

Storm season is approaching, is your home prepared? Read up on some tips we at SERVPRO of Fall River recommend to make sure you are storm ready:

  • Before storm season, be sure to check the seals around all windows and doors, even the ones in your attic, basement, and garage. Checking your seals is a smart thing to do every season change.
  • One of the most imperative steps to stormproof your home is securing and sealing your roof. Inspecting your roof to make sure all the tiles or shingles are secure. Look for any cracks or missing pieces. Then replace any missing shingles or tiles and seal any cracks you find. 
  • If your home has cables or furnaces that are attached to the exterior make sure the areas of connection are securely sealed. You can easily seal the holes with caulk. 
  • If a storm is coming removing items like patio furniture, potted plants, and even trampolines can be swept up by strong winds and damage your siding or windows.
  • Before storm season hits, take time to analyze your home insurance policy to ensure coverage. You’ll want to be sure the policy covers the full cost of rebuilding your home if it is lost in a storm. 

We can’t stop disasters from happening, but we can certainly be prepared. Take steps today to plan for how you will weather a storm. And remember, SERVPRO of Fall River is always Here to Help.

Take Cover(age) - Swansea 02777

Ever had the winds of storm batter against your house, it made you think the roof was going to come down? You may have even considered hiding in the bathtub because you were sure the house was going to be knocked over.

Your Nose Knows - Fall River 02720

2/3/2020 (Permalink)

Osmophobia is the fear of bad smells. So if you’ve ever been in a room you couldn’t get out of with a horrible stench, chances are you’ve felt attacked by the odor in the air. While the smell is creeping in and taking over the room, your first inclination is to get out! But what if that room happens to be your home or office and you can’t exactly “run away” from the smell?

That’s when you decide to fight back. 

Not just by lighting a candle or plugging in a diffuser, some smells need to be kicked out, not masked!

This is why SERVPRO of Fall River offers deodorization services on top of the many clean-up and restoration services we provide. Not only do we help you get to the bottom of the smell, or the top if it’s coming from the attic, we’ll also be there to help guide you and your nose back to the clean and fresh air that your nose knows it needs. We also offer air duct cleaning services to ensure you’re breathing better and fresher with every whiff you take! 

If you’re smelling something that shouldn’t be, give our office at SERVPRO of Fall River a call and we’d be happy to help!
