11/8/2021 (Permalink)

Fire damage, including smoke and soot, affects not only the structure of your house, but also your belongings. SERVPRO® understands your family’s furniture, clothing, keepsakes, and other belongings are the very things that make a house a home.

SERVPRO of Daviess County specializes in restoring contents damaged by water, fire, or mold. Our expertise and “restore” versus “replace” mentality can help you save money while preserving precious keepsakes that can’t be replaced. We pretest your belongings to determine what items can be restored to pre-fire condition. We'll use several methods to clean your contents, including:

Dry Cleaning - Used for cleaning light residues or to pre-clean prior to wet cleaning.

Wet Cleaning - An effective cleaning method for removing moderate to heavy residues.

Spray and Wipe -Effective for items that can’t withstand wet cleaning.

Foam Cleaning - Used for upholstery fabrics that might shrink or bleed if wet cleaned.

Abrasive Cleaning - Involves agitation of the surface being cleaned.

Immersion Cleaning - Contents are dipped into a bath of the cleaning product.

Don’t Forget P.A.S.S. When Using a Fire Extinguisher

11/8/2021 (Permalink)

The National Fire Protection Association recommends the following when operating a fire extinguisher.

Remember the word PASS:

  • Pull the pin. Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you, and release the locking mechanism.
  • Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.
  • Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.
  • Sweep the nozzle from side-to-side.

For your home, select a multi-purpose extinguisher (can be used on all types of home fires) that is large enough to put out a small fire, but not so heavy as to be difficult to handle.

Be sure to read the instructions that come with the fire extinguisher and become familiar with its parts and operation before a fire breaks out. Local fire departments or fire equipment distributors often offer hands-on fire extinguisher trainings.

Install fire extinguishers close to an exit and keep your back to a clear exit when you use the device so you can make an easy escape if the fire cannot be controlled. If the room fills with smoke, leave immediately.

Factory or Warehouse Flooded? SERVPRO is who you call!

10/10/2021 (Permalink)

Although finding a company capable of handling water removal from a factory of any size or warehouse may seem difficult, we at SERVPRO know we can handle any water removal and restoration projects in the area. We handle water removal from large buildings without trouble. If you still have doubts, here are a few of the techniques we use to dry the place out thoroughly and quickly.

Water Extraction
When a water removal project from a factory or warehouse calls for extraction of standing water, many companies do not know where to begin. Even worse, some may begin the extraction process under-equipped and poorly prepared, and may not remove water from the premises in time to prevent some of the worst damage from happening. We use truck-mounted extraction pumps to remove standing water as quickly as necessary, bringing in additional trucks as needed to make sure the building gets drained before damage can get any worse.

Fast Drying
Once standing water has been cleared, we can begin the process of drying the area out and eliminating moisture that has already penetrated into materials in the building and stored objects. By creating air currents throughout the building, we can pick up water droplets on a large scale before depositing them in buckets via our fast-acting dehumidifying technology.

Care for Contents
Depending on what you have stored in the warehouse, we may have to use special preventative measures to protect the building's contents. If they present a safety hazard when mixed with water, be sure to let us know so that our technicians can don adequate personal protective equipment.

SERVPRO provides industry-leading care for our commercial customers in the aftermath of a disaster and has the resources required to handle even the largest projects.

How To Prevent Water Damage in Your Business and Home

Fire and water damage are the two main reasons that SERVPRO is contacted, but many people do not realize that even with fire jobs, often times water damage is also present after putting out the fire. But the most common reason we are called to a home or business to clean up water is because of a busted pipe.


The easiest thing to do is to prevent damage from happening by looking for leaks, and checking pipes for cracks. The next step is to educate yourself and others around you. Do this by learning how to properly cut off water supply throughout the home or building.


This is the quickest way to ensure that no more water can pour into the home and create more damage.

Water pipe damage per minute:

A ½ inch pipe can spill up to 50 gallons a minute

A 1-inch pipe can spill up to 210 gallons a minute

A 2-inch pipe can spill up to 850 gallons a minute

A broken pipe can cause a lot of damage if not found quickly. This is why it is so important to prevent as much damage as possible when in this situation.

Theme of the Month – April

This month we are focused on talking about something hard: Biohazard. This is a service that many never think about until they are in the situation. Many times, people might try to clean this up themselves without first finding out the risks associated. There are many reasons why it is best to do your homework and choose a company to assist, but here are two great reasons:

  • Safety: No matter what type of fluid (blood, feces, vomit, etc.), they are all considered biohazard from both human and animal. That means that they could carry life threatening pathogens to the person cleaning up the area or whoever is even just exposed to them. When working with life threatening pathogens, it is important to remove and dispose of this waste properly, in a trained manner. SERVPRO of Daviess County, Kentucky has completed all of the proper trainings, including being registered and compliant with OSHA and FEMA guideline to clean up any type of biohazard.
  • Traumatic: When it is a personal connection, it is emotionally difficult to clean up the area when it is a traumatic loss. Having someone else come in will be easier on any family or loved ones.

If you have any questions about this service, give us a call.
