SERVPRO0® Reminds You To Keep Hydrated In The Heat

6/5/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO® Green Van And SERVPR® Duck Stay safe, and stay hydrated in the heat

Scientifically, and medically there is an explanation as to why the humidity makes the heat so much harder on the body. Our body has its own cooling system, which works by producing perspiration or sweat. When sweat or perspiration evaporates it gives the skin the cooling effect. We know that hot weather can tax the body, but did you know that High Humidity causes our physical cooling system to strain, as the humidity makes it harder for the sweat to evaporate? Extreme Heat causes many to lose their lives each year. There are risks for each of us if not hydrating properly, but those at the highest risk are the young, sick, old and overweight. There are many illnesses in conjunction with Extreme Heat. HEAT STROKE is caused by the body’s own air conditioning unit when it stops working. HEAT CRAMPS are muscle spasms that usually involve the legs and abdomen. This is the direct result of dehydration and can be the first sign someone is getting dangerously hot. HEAT EXHAUSTION is very serious, and more serious than cramps. The skin will be cold and clammy. The person needs cool cloths, and sips of water every 15 minutes. If there is vomiting, seek medical help.

At SERVPRO you are family, and we want you safe, and healthy. We Care. #HereToHelp #KeepCool #KeepHydrated

SERVPRO Suggests A Regular Maintenance Schedule For Your HVAC System

Mold covers the HVAC system located in a closet Got Mold? Call SERVPRO

Changing seasons should correlate with the maintenance of your HVAC system.  Also, the filter to your system should be changed on a regular basis.  If your HVAC intake is in a closet, or a location where you cannot see it, it is important to locate the HVAC and physically view the component so make sure you are not developing mold.  Mold can develop without your knowledge and move throughout your entire system affecting the duct work as well. Once the duct work has been affected the mold spores can be distributed throughout your entire home, or office.  Once this happens there is the potential that the health of those frequenting the home, or business can have their health compromised.  Mold must be properly addressed to assure proper removal. 

If you think you have mold call SERVPRO and we will get you back to “Like it never even happened.”

Green SERVPRO van packed with SERVPRO boxes of contents SERVPRO trains their technicians on how to properly handle contents that have suffered fire or water damage.

Once a fire has been extinguished, and a water remediation is in process, it is important to begin addressing contents that have been exposed to fire, smoke, soot, and water.  Everything is checked individually, and determined as to whether it is salvageable, or unsalvageable.  Every object is inventoried, and if unsalvageable is recorded and readied for the Insurance Adjuster to examine for loss purposes.

Anything that is deemed salvageable is boxed up and brought to the SERVPRO Warehouse to be cleaned by the Contents Crew.  Depending on the level of heat objects are exposed to during the fire will help determine if it is salvageable as the integrity can become compromised. When the SERVPRO Contents Crew comes across an object that has been compromised it too will be inventoried and placed separate from the salvageable contents.

At SERVPRO we want you back to “Like it never even happened.”

A water loss no matter how large, or small needs to be addressed as quickly as possible. We understand that when you call us, you may be feeling confused, stressed, and vulnerable. You need an expert to guide you through this crisis. SERVPRO has the specific water damage training and experience to help you through this tough time. We specialize in water damage restoration—in fact, it is the cornerstone of our business.

When you call, we will ask several questions regarding your water damage emergency. These questions will help us determine what equipment and resources to bring, including how many trained SERVPRO Professionals will be needed.

Our SERVPRO Representative will ask several questions:

  • Your name and contact information
  • Your insurance information (if applicable)
  • The street address of the water-damaged home or business
  • When did the flooding or water damage occur?
  • What caused the water damage (if known)?
  • Has the water been shut off, or the source of the loss been addressed?
  • Is there electricity available (on-site)?
  • Has there been any exposure to COVID-19?

SERVPRO is available 24 hours a day for water emergencies, large or small, residential, or commercial. When you are dealing with water damage, immediate action is crucial. A delay of just a few hours can greatly increase the severity of the water damage, and potential for mold.

Quickness is key and will help get you back to “Like it never even happened.”

Call SERVPRO for a Professional Mold Remediation

Mold spore and the words Mold Damage across the mold spore Mold can be invasive to your home or business. SERVPRO technicians are trained to remove the mold to get you back to "Like it never even happened."

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. It is a fallacy that all mold can be removed. 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, or health issues. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent. High humidity in a home can support mold growth. If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property. Should you have mold SERVPRO will provide a Mold Remediation for your home, or business.

Fun in the sun can become hazardous to your health if you're not properly hydrating

Scientifically and medically there is an explanation as to why the humidity makes the heat so much harder on the body. Our body has its own cooling system, which works by producing perspiration or sweat. When sweat or perspiration evaporates it gives the skin the cooling effect. We know that hot weather can tax the body, but did you know that High Humidity causes our physical cooling system to strain, as the humidity makes it harder for the sweat to evaporate? Extreme Heat causes many to lose their lives each year. There are risks for each of us if not hydrating properly, but those at the highest risk are the young, sick, old and overweight. There are many illnesses in conjunction with Extreme Heat. HEAT STROKE is caused by the body’s own air conditioning unit when it stops working. HEAT CRAMPS are muscle spasms that usually involve the legs and abdomen. This is the direct result of dehydration and can be the first sign someone is getting dangerously hot. HEAT EXHAUSTION is very serious, and more serious than cramps. The skin will be cold and clammy. The person needs cool cloths, and sips of water every 15 minutes. If there is vomiting, seek medical help.

At SERVPRO you are family, and we want you safe, and healthy. We Care. #HereToHelp #KeepCool #KeepHydrated
