When your home has been damaged by fire or water damage, our goal at SERVPRO of Hamilton County, of Indianapolis North and of Anderson is to make your property "Like it never even happened" quickly and at the lowest cost to you.

Insurance and restoration industry studies have concluded that restoring property after fire and water damage is less expensive than replacing. Restoring is also less disruptive to our clients, often allowing them to remain in their homes during the process and resume life as normal sooner. As a preferred mitigation and restoration vendor for most major insurance companies, our employees are trained to determine when restoring can be accomplished with the high quality results that our clients deserve. This "restore" versus "replace" mentality can save money while preserving family heirlooms, keepsakes, and other items that are impossible or cost-prohibitive to replace.

Christmas Tree Safety

Christmas Tree Safety Keep Your Family Safe This Holiday Season

For many families the decorating of the Christmas tree signals the official start of the holiday season. Unfortunately, Christmas trees start approximately 210 house fires each year in the United States. There are a few basic safety tips that can keep your family safe this season while you enjoy your festive holiday decorations:

*Carefully select your tree - look for fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched.

*Place your tree carefully: stay at least three feet away from any heat source including fireplaces, radiators, heat vents or lights. Keep candles away from your tree.

*Examine your lights before decorating your tree. Throw away any strands with broken cords or loose bulb connections. Be sure your lights have been checked for safety in a recognized testing laboratory and only use lights designated for indoor use on your tree. 

*Water your tree daily.

*Remove your tree promptly after Christmas or as soon as it is noticeably dry. Be sure to dispose of your tree properly- a dried out tree is a fire hazard if left in your home or garage. Find our if your community has a recycling program for trees. 

Enjoy the holiday season with your family and friends. If your home or business suffers a fire or smoke damage, call the restoration professionals at SERVPRO of Hamilton County, of Indianapolis North and of Anderson. We are available anytime day or night at 317-773-0422.

How Ice Dams Cause Water Damage To Your Home

11/26/2019 (Permalink)

Freezing temperatures are on the way for Central Indiana and homeowners need to be on the watch for ice dams.

Many of us enjoy the beauty of icicles hanging over the eaves of our home during the winter months. Unfortunately, this can be a sign of an imminent problem for your home. Ice dams are thick ridges of ice that build up along eaves or the lower levels of rooflines. They are created when snow melts on an upper, warmer part of the roof and the meltwater runs down to the colder eaves then freezes. This ice accumulates and forms a blockage. This blockage (or dam) causes the melted water from the roof to back up behind it, flowing under shingles and eventually into the home itself. The result can be serious damage to the exterior of your home, pulling down shingles and gutters. It can also be the cause of wet insulation, walls and warped flooring inside. 

The best way to prevent ice dams from occurring is to ensure the air in the attic doesn't get too warm, thus preventing the melting that leads to the build up of ice. Increase insulation to be sure no warm, moist air is able to move from your home's living spaces into the attic area. Maintaining colder temperatures in your attic area is the best way to prevent future ice dams. Properly ventilate your roof so that any warm air that does escape the living space into the attic is carried away.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, ice dams can occur during the winter months and the subsequent water damage to our homes can be devastating. If your home or business has flooding this winter, call the restoration professionals at SERVPRO of Hamilton County, of Indianapolis North, and of Anderson at 317-773-0422. We are available anytime day or night to make your home "Like it never even happened."
