Spring, Summer, Falls and Winter in Idaho

4/9/2021 (Permalink)

Winter has reared its ugly face this year for sure! These storms all around the US have been nothing short of vicious and aggressive and if you live in Idaho you know the weather is anything but predictable. Spring in Southeastern Idaho is really more of a suggestion than a planned event and definitely not a time to put those winter jackets away just yet. Monday we have sunshine, Tuesday windy, Wednesday snow, Thursday rain, Friday more wind, and the weekend brings beautiful sunny skies. You never really know what you’re going to get.

With these strange weather phenomenon’s also brings potential damage to one’s home. Heavy winds bring all sorts of disasters including shingles blowing off of roofs, trees falling into homes, and powerlines tumbling over like building blocks. Heavy wind disasters paired with an extremely snowy or rainy day following can really cause a home owner a major burden. For example… After that wind storm rips a few shingles from your roof, you now have a huge potential for water damage which can lead to mold damage faster than you know.

After any kind of storm you should most definitely always check your home and yard when safe to do so. Check for fallen trees and powerlines, cracks in your foundation, and if possible any missing shingles. If you do experience a water, fire, mold or asbestos disaster give SERVPRO a call today! We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

Water damage in the kitchen

4/2/2021 (Permalink)

Recently we went to a home where the home owner had just installed a new water softener under their sink. They decided to do it themselves. Everything seemed to be working correctly and it seemed that they installed it correctly. That is until they woke up to the sound of roaring water in the kitchen. 

What had happened was that the hose they connected to the main water supply line had not been tightened correctly and had slipped off causing water to flow out everywhere. Their entire kitchen was completely flooded! Thankfully SERVPRO is available 24 hours a day. They were able to call us and we came out right away. We were able to assess the damage and get them dried up right away!

If you have a fire, water, mold, asbestos or biohazard disaster call SERVPRO today! We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
