A happy dog is surrounded by a human family. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

Do your pets want to know about pet fire safety?

Sometimes I wish my pets could talk, and then I think about it some more, and I’m glad they can’t! SERVPRO® of Beckley knows there are lots of animals lovers in Shady Spring, and we want you all to know about pet safety. The National Fire Protection Association  offers these pet fire safety tips to keep your pets safe around a fire:

  • Keep pets away from stoves and countertops
  • Keep pets away from candles, lamps, and space heaters
  • Always use a metal or heat-tempered glass screen on a fireplace and keep it in place
  • Keep pets away from a chimney’s outside vents.
  • Have a “pet-free zone” of at least three feet away from the fireplace. Glass doors and screens can stay dangerously hot for several hours after the fire goes out.
  • Some pets are chewers. Watch pets to make sure they don’t chew through electrical cords. Have any problems been checked by a professional?

Water-damaged Belongings in Beckley?

A leaking roof is shown. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

Contents restoration services for Beckley!

When my roof leaked, everything in my attic was damaged by the water. My insurance adjuster told me to call SERVPRO® of Beckley, and I’m glad I did.  The team arrived quickly, and they immediately tarped the leaking roof to minimize the potential for further water damage. They pulled everything out of the attic to be cleaned and extracted the water from the attic floor. They set up air movers and air blowers to pull the rest of the moisture from the air and document the drying process.

Together we looked at the items that need to be restored and they explained the different contents restoration options that were available to me.

Rainwater Intrusion in Sophia?

8/30/2021 (Permalink)

A clogged rain gutter is shown. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

Clogged or damaged rain gutters' downspouts can contribute to water damage when the water is allowed to spill onto the structure instead of draining away from the home. SERVPRO® of Beckley responds to water damage emergencies all year long in Sophia, and we offer these tips from home expert Bob Villa on how to determine if your rain gutters are damaged:

Inspect your rain gutters for visible signs of cracking. Use some binoculars to inspect for smaller cracks. If you see extensive cracking, replacement is required.

Inspect gutter seams for damage where two horizontal sections meet.

Inspect your home’s paint job. If there is evidence of paint peeling, it may point to rain gutter failure. Check the section of the rain gutter closest to the paint damage for leaks. If there are more than a couple of leaks, you may want to replace the rain gutters.

Inspect your home’s exterior wood elements for rotting windowsills or door jambs. You may have clogged rain gutters or inadequate storm drainage.

Inspect the exterior of the home for mildew damage. If there is moisture accumulating around or near the foundation, mildew can grow. This is a sign your rain gutters are not working properly.
