Got Paid Too Much in East Greenville !!!

7/25/2016 (Permalink)

I was rather surprised the other day when you contacted me by phone, indicating that my daughter had "overpaid" for the services you provided at her condominium after a water leak........ I indicated that I was surprised because she (my daughter) was unaware of the overpayment and your phone call to me as the coordinator of the project, indicated your integrity and honesty with regards to how you conduct your business practices. It has been my experience in more recent years to find that I am consistantly disappointed with the service for which I'm paying. Thus, the refreshment of your phone call which was surprising to me in that you could have kept the 1800+ dollars and we would have not known there was in fact an overpayment due to the complexity of several insurance payments from multiple insurance companies, etc.. It gave me pause to consider that all is not lost in the world of business. As a retired business professional, I understand integrity, hoesty and the need for customers to believe in a business provider and feel that their money has been spent in a worthwhile manner.

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Pottstown/Souderton will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Does your Pottstown, Collegeville, Phoenixville, Telford, Harleysville home have a mold problem ?

6/21/2016 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Does your Pottstown, Collegeville, Phoenixville, Telford, Harleysville home have a mold problem ? Mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
