When a Storm Comes Through Town

5/29/2019 (Permalink)

Storm damage can be one of the most challenging types of damage for most communities. When a large storm comes through town it affects so many people, homes, and businesses. 

Most damage comes in small phases, a home or business here and there. But when a huge storm comes through a community-a large number of people are then affected. Which means a large number of people are now in need of help.

This is where SERVPRO of Vincennes comes in. We have a large enough team that we can not only handle the small damage but we can handle the largest size disasters as well. We have relationships with all of our neighboring SERVPRO's that can get to us quickly and start putting peoples lives back together.

Do You Know What to do BEFORE the Storm?

5/28/2019 (Permalink)

Preparing for a storm can be intmidating, let us give you some tips to make the process a lot easier for you.

Before The Storm:

  1. Build an emergency supply kit and make a family communication plan.
  2. Remove dead or rotting trees and branches that could fall and cause injury or damage during a severe thunderstorm.
  3. Postpone outdoor activities.
  4. Remember the 30/30 Lighting Safety Rule: Go indoors if, after seeing lighting, you cannot count to 30 before hearing thunder. Stay indoors for 30 minutes after hearing the last clap of thunder.
  5. Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
  6. Get inside a home, building, or hard top automobile (not a convertible). Although you may be injured if lighting strikes your car, you are much safer inside a vehicle than outside.
  7. Remember, rubbed-soled shoes and rubber tires provide NO protection from lighting. However, the steel frame of a hard-topped vehicle provides increased protection if you are not touching metal.
  8. Shutter windows and secure outside doors. If shutters are not available, close window blinds, shades or curtains.
  9. Unplug any electronic equipment well before the storm arrives.

3/30/2019 (Permalink)

If you walk down your basement stairs to find inches of water on the ground, you will be happy to have our phone number. Most people aren't prepared for their basement to flood. A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Have Questions about basement flooding, give us a call. We are here to answer your questions and be of help to you.

If flood water is not handled quickly and properly, it can jeopardize your health and safety, and cause severe damage to your home’s structure. Remember, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get.

The bottom line: a flooded basement can jeopardize your health, safety, and your home’s integrity. It’s worth making a call to SERVPRO of Vincennes and let our trained, professional crews handle the situation safely and correctly.

My Floor is Covered in Water....HELP!!

3/1/2019 (Permalink)

Nobody ever anticipates water damage. We all think "that won't happen to me." But unfortunately it's actually pretty common. 

It may have started out as innocent bath time playfulness, an accidental spill or small leak. Suddenly, you are surrounded by water on the floor, moving towards walls, crevices, and other access points to reach the lowest level of their home.

You reach for the towels, wet vac, mops and fans to clean up the water and the phone to contact you. You clean up the surface water and believe everything will be okay and the problem is solved. Or, is it? What happened to the water that traveled into the floor, subfloors and walls? Was all the moisture caused by the incident removed? Water intrusion in a home can leave subtle, yet lasting effects if not completely removed from the structure. Removing standing water with appropriate precautions can prevent further damage. But, who removes water and moisture in the flooring and walls of your home?

We do. SERVPRO of Vincennes is here to help you. Let us take care of your problem.
