Mold after water damage

6/7/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Huntington handles emergency situations involving water damage.  We understand that where there is standing water, there may be mold.  The longer the moisture has been in an area, the greater the chance for mold.  

If you have sustained water damage to your home or business, keep your eyes (and nose) out for signs of mold.  In addition to visible mold spots, you may smell a musty odor. Also be aware that past moisture problems can indicate current mold.

Garden hose tips

5/30/2018 (Permalink)

Some of you out there may already be headlong into gardening season.  Some of you may have already spray washed your home.  And some of you may have given your car a squeaky clean detailing.  What do these things have in common? A garden hose!

Here are some handy tips for all your garden hose needs:

  • Use a cart: Hauling around a large hose can hurt your back.  If covering a big distance, consider using a wheeled cart.
  • Avoid pressure surges: make any changes in water pressure gradual to avoid damaging the hose
  • Watch out for baby plants! Fragile, tender, and newly sprouted plants can be damaged by dragging a hose over them.  Be careful!
  • Store hoses properly: Protect them from the elements, too much sun, and pests/rodents.  Ideally, you'll want to keep it in a cool, dark place that's off the ground.

Storms 101: Rain

5/24/2018 (Permalink)

It's time for the last installment of Storms 101.  Did you know that Huntington gets an average of 42 inches of rain a year?  That's three inches over the national average! Just how does rain happen, though?

Our atmosphere is made up of small dust particles called condensation nuclei, which are created from things like volcanic eruptions, pollution, fires, and other events.  The sun heats up bodies of water like the ocean, and water vapor rises into the air.  The condensed water vapor sticks to the condensation nuclei and creates clouds. 

When enough water condenses, the droplets get heavy enough to fall back down to the ground.  If it's cold enough for the droplets to freeze, that creates snow.  If not, it becomes rain and the cycle starts all over again.
