Mold is visible on a wall. We are leaders in mold remediation services in Raleigh County.

Our local team in Beckley has been restoring mold damage for Beckley businesses for many years. Here is the comprehensive mold removal process we follow for every job:

  1. Emergency Contact

We’ll ask you questions to determine the necessary equipment and resources.

  1. Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We follow local and state laws regarding inspection and documentation based on your unique situation.

  1. Mold Containment

We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process.

  1. Air Filtration

We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.

  1. Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

We use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.

  1. Cleaning Contents

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, and other restorable items affected by mold. We’re also trained to remove odors and deodorization using fogging equipment.

  1. Restoration

Restoration may involve minor repairs, or it may require the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a commercial business or home.

Leaking Shower Pan in Beckley Home?

5/4/2022 (Permalink)

A woman is taking a shower. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration services in Raleigh County.

Do you know how to tell if you have a leaking shower pan? According to a study published by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS), homes more than twenty years old were 37 percent more likely to have water damage involving a shower, and more than half of these claims involved a damaged shower stall.

Our local team in Beckley has been responding to water damage emergencies for years in the Beckley area. Some of these emergencies may have been prevented through routine inspection and maintenance.

Here are some tips from the IBHS for maintaining your shower pan:

Inspect tile and grout every six months, paying attention to loose or cracked tiles or cracked and crumbling grout lines. Make these repairs as needed.

Test the shower pan annually by:

  1. Blocking the drain
  2. Fill the shower stall with about one inch of water
  3. Use a pencil to mark the waterline
  4. Leave the water standing in the shower pan for eight hours
  5. If the water level decreases, contact a plumbing professional

Tips for Keeping Pets Calm During a Thunderstorm in Beckley?

Two dogs hide underneath a blanket during a storm. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

Our local team in Beckley responds to storm damage emergencies every year, and sometimes pets get very anxious during thunderstorms. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)offers some great tips for managing your pet’s anxiety during a thunderstorm:

How to Help a Scared Pet

The good news is there are lots of things you can do at home to help your pet. Please remember that one thing does not work for all pets—so keep trying and see what works for them.  

  • Keep calm! Your dog is aware of your emotions; they are more likely to get upset if you are.
  • Let them hide. If they prefer to stay under the bed, in a closet or bathroom, let them stay there. 
  • If your pet does not have a place to hide, consider creating a safe place for them. Interior rooms where there is less noise or flashes of light are a good place to start.
  • Try distracting your pet by playing games. You can turn on the TV, play soft music, or give them a food puzzle or kong filled with their favorite item are all great ways to distract your pet. 
  • Anxiety vests or shirts may also help your pet feel calmer

Smoking Materials Fire in Shady Spring?

House fire in upstairs window. We restore fire damage in Raleigh County - no matter how big the job is!

Our local team in Beckley responds to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in Shady Spring. E-Cigarettes have gained in popularity, and many people use them as part of a smoking cessation plan. However, e-cigarette batteries have been known to explode. Here are some smoking safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Electronic Cigarettes

Never leave charging e-cigarettes unattended. E-cigarettes should be used with caution.

  • Battery failures have led to small explosions
  • Fires have occurred while e-cigarettes were being used

o   While the battery was being charged

o   While the device was being transported

Smoking Safety

  • If you smoke, use only fire-safe cigarettes
  • If you smoke, smoke outside. Most deaths result from fires that started in living rooms, family rooms, and dens or in bedrooms.
  • Keep cigarettes, lighters, matches, and other smoking materials up high out of the reach of children, in a locked cabinet

Put It Out

  • Use a deep, sturdy ashtray. Place it away from anything that can burn.
  • Do not discard cigarettes in vegetation such as mulch, potted plants or landscaping, peat moss, dried grasses, leaves, or other things that could ignite easily
  • Before you throw away butts and ashes, make sure they are out, and dousing in water or sand is the best way to do that

Rug and Upholstery Cleaning Services in Beckley?

Clean, colorful throw rugs are shown partially unrolled. We keep Raleigh County carpets looking great and smelling fresh!

My house was starting to look and smell like a kennel. Now that my two dogs can spend more time outdoors, I thought it would be a good time to deep clean my rugs, carpets, and upholstered furniture. My neighbor told me to call the local team in Beckley. Their team is trained and certified to perform many deep cleaning and deodorization services, including:

Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

Our carpet and upholstery cleaning service will not only get out the dirt you see but will also remove the unwanted dust you don’t. A professionally cleaned carpet and furniture may make all the difference in brightening up a room and freshening up your home.

Air Duct Cleaning

We all have tasks around the house that don’t make it to the top of our priority list. Properly maintaining your home’s air ducts should not be one of them. Regular duct cleaning can increase your home’s heating and cooling efficiency and improve the quality of the air you and your family breathe.

Odor Removal

Your basic cleaning service will not have the expertise to effectively deodorize your home. Take advantage of our residential cleaning services to remove unwanted odors.

Flooded Basement in Beckley Home?

3/16/2022 (Permalink)

A sump pump is shown in a basement. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

When my basement flooded, everything was compromised by stinky, dirty water. Yuck! Thankfully my insurance adjuster told me to call SERVPRO® of Beckley. They sent a team out right away to mitigate and restore the damage. The team removed everything and extracted the water using powerful extraction equipment. They set up air blowers and documented and monitored the drying process to ensure the area was returned to normal moisture levels. When they were through, my basement smelled great and was clean and dry.

Here are some tips from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety to keep your sump pump working correctly:

  • Open the lid and remove debris that may be blocking the water inlet screen
  • Pour about five gallons of water into the pump and watch the float valve rise
  • As the float valve rises, the pump should turn on, and the water should discharge through the outlet pipe
  • Go outside and inspect the outlet pipe
  • Water should be flowing from the pipe and away from the home
  • Contact a plumbing professional if the sump pump fails to operate during this inspection
  • Install a battery backup system
  • Choose a system with a battery replacement warning
  • Replace batteries every two to three years
