If you do have to leave town, drain your pipes.

Keep the garage doors closed.

Lastly, know where to turn off the water if disaster strikes.

Mold hidden in a commercial building

Spotting Hidden Damage

Our teams have certainly seen our fair share of mold, so when it comes to finding it, there's no hidden spore we won't seek out. Our SERVPRO of Carroll County crews are specifically trained to utilize special equipment to find any mold, but sometimes it is as simple as getting a flashlight on the job. In this home, mold was hiding in plain sight in the dark. Other mold remediation companies might not work as thoroughly as our SERVPRO of Carroll County crews do to ensure that your property is completely free of mold. We inspect your home or business before, during, and after the mitigation process so as to make sure mold is completely gone. We work to make sure you're as informed and comfortable as possible because we know that any damage to your property can be incredibly stressful. Have no fear, SERVPRO is here!

Home burnt from a fire

Fire Doesn't use the Stairs

A fire really doesn't need stairs to get from one floor to another once it ignites in your home or business. This can make restoration seem impossible, but when our professionally trained crews are on scene after your fire... it'll be "Like it never even happened."

Rain Boots in your own Home

We have all seen the game "What's wrong with this picture." It's kind of fun to see what doesn't belong in the picture until it's a picture of your house!

In this picture, rain boots shouldn't be needed inside the house. When rain from a storm makes it's way inside it's not a game. 

Make sure you're prepared. Have your roof, chimney, and sump pump checked, just to name a few. Keep the rain outside where it belongs. 

You want to take your rain boots off before you come inside, not put them on to come inside.

Collapsed ceiling from storm

When a storm rolled through with high winds, a local business sustained roof damage and heavy water damage. The heavy rain flooded in and caused part of the ceiling to collapse, littering insulation and drywall everywhere. The interior also became soaked with water, and SERVPRO Carroll County was called to handle it.

Are you prepared for the cold Maryland weather? From freezing rain and low temperatures, to damaging winds, sleet or snow, can all cause serious and costly property damage. While you cannot control the weather, you can take steps to prepare your Carroll County home or business. To help prevent costly winter storm damages, consider taking the following precautions to protect your property before winter weather hits. Check your Carroll County business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Wind, heavy rain, ice and snow can cause branches to fall, which could cause damage to your property and potentially cause personal injuries. Inspect your roof, pipes, and gutters, downspouts should be directed away from your building. Clear gutters of debris that may have gathered during the fall. Winter starts December 21, 2020 and leaves can cause a damming effect, which can lead to roof damage. When winter weather strikes, call SERVPRO Carroll County to strike back.

Its effects have been known since the 18th century, when the British Parliament passed the Chimney Sweepers Act in response to its association with cancer - the first ever occupational health legislation….the more you know.

Chem Sponge

Here at SERVPRO of Carroll County we have many techniques and tools for dealing with fire remediation. One of our favorites is called the “Chem Sponge” is used for removal of dry dirt, dust, hair and smoke/soot residues. They work like large “erasers”, these rubber sponges drawing the dust, soot and smoke residue into the cells of the sponge material.

Pipe Break

When the employees of this restaurant reported to work that morning, they were greeted with a wet surprise. Their entire restaurant had flooded due to a broken pipe. Our team at SERVPRO of Carroll County were able to react quickly and begin the restoration process.

Mold Remediation

This home had a leaky pipe that went undetected for months. During the humidity of the summer months, mold began to grow on the wood paneling.  Our team at SERVORO of Carroll County removed all contents and then removed the mold.

Oder Removal

When it comes to successful deodorization the first step is to clean/remove or fix what is causing the odor, for example the best chance of success would be to clean the fire damage first, fix a leaking pipe that is causing a musty odor, or remove the garbage from an area before starting the ozone process. It will be crucial to remove items emitting odor.

How it works: Basically, ozone removes odor by destroying the molecules, bacteria, and spores that cause unpleasant smells.  Ozone (O3) is a highly reactive molecule and is very quick to chemically react with particles that it comes into contact with in the air and on surfaces.  The extra oxygen atom in the ozone attaches itself to other molecules, chemically changing their structure to create non-offensive.

Soda Blasting

Soda Blasting is very much like Sand Blasting. It works in along with a large air compressor to clean dirty parts and surfaces. But instead of using sand as the cleaning abrasive, a soda blaster shoots out sodium bicarbonate, which is commonly known as baking soda (though what's used in blasters is composed of larger particles than those found in standard household baking soda).

 The advantage of using baking soda, as opposed to sand, crushed walnut shells, coal slag, or any other abrasive, is that it's environmentally safe, less aggressive, relatively affordable, and easily rinsed away with water. In fact, the first large-scale industrial use of soda blasting occurred during the 1986 centennial restoration of the Statue of Liberty. It was the only safe and effective way to remove coal tar, paint, and corrosion from the statue's soft copper skin.

Soot Webs

Our customers frequently mistake these soot webs, also known as soot tags, for smoke that has attached itself to spider webs that were present prior to a fire. In fact, soot from synthetic/petroleum based sources that have burned, cling to each other like magnets creating chains of soot.
