Let SERVPRO Handle Your Disaster-Damaged Belongings

10/28/2021 (Permalink)

Protecting and maintaining your house and property is always on top of a homeowner's to-do list.

Deciding what to repair and what to replace after a storm or natural disaster is a vital safety issue. Doing it yourself is not recommended when it comes to power and gas. Electric and Gas appliances are affected by water, mud, smoke, soot and debris. Your appliances may appear to be fine on the outside, often what you can’t see is the larger problem. Mopping up the floors and cleaning the stainless fixtures isn’t enough when it comes to the inner workings of electric and gas appliances. Small particles, mud, and moisture trapped in the mechanical and motor components can cause further damage and even electrocution. Re-energizing your appliances that have been exposed to the elements can be deadly without proper reconditioning or replacement. Always call your local utility company for gas ranges, heater or clothes dryers. The proper inspection, cleaning, and sanitation process is always best left to the professionals.

It’s what you can’t see that’s dangerous when it comes to appliances and other electrical equipment.

You've been spared the three inches of water in the basement and the neighbor’s tree on your roof, but what about the danger and damage you can’t see? Power surges, excessive moisture and debris can damage the inner components, efficiency and safety of major appliances in your kitchen and laundry room -- as well as places you may not think of initially. Living rooms, bedrooms, and playrooms should also be carefully inspected. Audio and video equipment are adversely affected by the elements. Contamination and damage from mold and moisture will hurt your appliances and may potentially harm you. Moisture and particles wreak havoc on the working parts in the fine-tuned motors of home appliances. You should never try to take apart or fix these appliances yourself. They need to serviced, cleaned and sanitized professionally. If you’re in need of such a service, trust SERVPRO of Mid-Outer Cape Cod to get the job done right. Call us anytime at 508-778-7378 for your home restoration needs.
