1st Confirmed Tornado of 2019 - Washington County, Maine

8/15/2019 (Permalink)

Maine has seen its first tornado of the 2019 year. Usually they get about a few tornadoes each year. A couple hours ago there were reports of an EF1 tornado touching Washington County. The tornado hit two areas at about 5:40PM. It ventured about a half mile.

Tornadoes are not as common as storms, but can still leave a lot of damage and debris behind, which is why we offer tree removal and building services. In fact, most deaths and injuries occur from flying debris. It is important to seek shelter in a structurally-secure building. SERVPRO of The Attleboros services include installing roof tarps, board-ups, tree removal, roofing services, general contracting, and installing temporary fencing to keep your residential or commercial business safe.

For more information on tornadoes in Maine, visit this resource of the Stats from Maine Emergency Management Agency. This tornado in Maine damaged trees and left rubble in it's path, so SERVPRO of The Attleboros can clean that up if anything like that happens at or near your Attleboro, Seekonk, or Norton home.

Storm Damage Product Spotlight - DEP Extraction Wand

8/14/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of The Attleboros water extraction technology for storm damage

DEP Water Extraction Wand

One of the most interesting products here at SERVPRO of The Attleboros is the water extraction wand. After storm damage, excessive moisture is most likely present and it needs to be extracted, then dried with the air-movers and dehumidifiers. This handy-dandy wand makes it easy for our technicians to extract water quickly and effectively for the Attleboro home or business owner. 

How The Wand Works:

The 2-inch diameter wand ensures the most air-flow through the tub. The handle makes it easy to hold and grasp when trying to cover smaller or tighter, more compact areas of the home. This wand comes with a patented plastic glider that makes using it a breeze. A flexible neck allows for easier use in tighter, clustered areas.This product weighs about 5 pounds. The light-weight design makes it easy for anybody to use. 

If vacuum pressure causes it to "cling" to the carpet, just squeeze the vacuum release lever and resume work. Easy easy!

Product Maintenance

Maintaining the cleanliness of this product is important, but there is no need to use abrasive cleaners. If you're using it daily, wipe it clean with a gentle detergent. Vacuum clean water through the device to clean the tube and the head. Inspect the break seal of the vacuum regularly if used a lot. Replace it if it’s damaged. Cleaning the device with hot water and mild detergent goes a long way and will ensure the integrity of the product.

NOTE - These wands are solely meant for carpet use. They are not meant for use on ceramic tiles or hard-wood floors. 

Water belongs in a glass with a lemon wedge, not in your home as a result of storm damage! Are you experiencing storm damage in your commercial property or home? Call SERVPRO of The Attleboros at 508-223-0505! We offer 24/7 emergency service.

Mold growth can occur anywhere in your home that is unclean, warm, and moist.

In addition to water and fire mitigation for your residence or commercial property, we also mitigate microbial growth in your North Attleboro property. Mold growth can substantiate after any-size water damage, so it is important to be on the lookout for signs of mold after moisture is present in your home or business. 

Basically, mildew is a type of mold. Mildew is a surface mold that won't damage the structure of the property, whereas other types cause the surface to decay. Black mold is hazardous to health and must be removed when found so that it does not grow through the whole business, endangering customers and putting your business at risk.

  3. The hotter the fire was, the harder it will be to clean surfaces.

50th Anniversary of the Moon Landings - 1969

7/5/2019 (Permalink)

The Moon Landings happened 50 years ago this month!

July 20th will mark the 50th Anniversary of the United States moon landings. When Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, people were glued to the television. Americans couldn't believe what they were seeing or if it was real. It was astounding for everybody watching. The Apollo Space Program by NASA conducted missions to the moon from 1969-1972, with a space shuttle first landing on the moon in 1968 (but no one walked on it until 6 months later). Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became household names. They reached the ultimate milestone.

SERVPRO of The Attleboros celebrated this amazing time in history. A time where we did what many thought was impossible. We may not have landed on the moon, but every day we do things for our customers that others won't do. We go above and beyond and are always striving to reach new and exciting milestones in our company. We care about your home and business. Read more about our commercial services.

Nate Lashley's Journey to His First PGA Golf Title

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of The Attleboros heroes Stormy and Blaze love golf!

Nick Lashley is a pro-golfer, and his journey to the PGA Tour was anything but easy. He started golfing at a young age with the support of his loving parents. During his golfing career, he received horrifying news that his parents and girlfriend died in a plane crash near Wyoming (they were on their way back from visiting Lashley at his golf match). This changed Lashley's course, and we became a real estate agent in 2012. 

Not so long after making this decision, he realized his true love was for golfing, and that's what he needed to pursue. His story is inspiring for #MondayMotivation because he kept going despite the pain of losing his loved ones all at once. He persevered and because of this, he recently won his first PGA Tour title as an ALTERNATE, NO LESS. His story is so amazing!It shows how you must never give up in wake of tragedy.
