October is home fire prevention month so throughout the month SERVPRO® of Beaverton has been bringing you tips and information from the Red Cross on how to prevent fire and save lives. Each year, the Red Cross responds to nearly 64,000 disasters, the majority of which are home fires resulting in about 7 deaths and 36 injuries every day and over $7 billion in property damage every year.

When fire tears through your home.

10/19/2018 (Permalink)

Imagine that you are away on vacation enjoying a well-deserved rest and you receive a call from a neighbor that your home has had a fire. This happened recently to one of our customers. They had to cut their vacation short to come home and deal with the aftermath that accompanies a fire. Things like meeting with the fire inspector, your insurance agent, making a non-salvage list, figuring out where you will stay if your home is not livable. Decide on and hire the company needed to come in and clean up after a fire happens. In this case the customer called their insurance agent who quickly gave them our number. We were able to get ion contact with the customer while they were still on vacation and speak with them about how we were going to help make it “Like it never even happened.” We were able to make plans to meet with a family member as the homeowner was still away and get the process started. We were able to start the cleanup and mitigation and help to get the customer on track to life before the fire. SERVPRO® of Beaverton has been helping customers for 15 years when water or fire cause damage at home or work. We are ready  24/7, 365 to help you when disaster strikes.

Washing machines are one of the leading causes of water damages in homes. They help to make life easier and make our lives easier. But when one leaks and overflows the damage is expansive and invasive. Recently we had a customer whose washing machine leaked and caused damage in their laundry room, ran down into their crawlspace and went through the wall affecting their garage. Many people don’t think of the damage that water causes but it spreads quickly and can cover a lot of ground quickly. We are at SERVPRO® of Beaverton have been helping customers when water damage causes damage in their work or home for over 15 years. We are ready 24/7, 365 to assist and help to make it “Like it never even happened.” We work alongside of you to make sure that your insurance company is in the loop and knows what is going on from start to finish to help make the payment and claims be as worry free as possible.

Water on the floor in kitchen... what do I do?

10/12/2018 (Permalink)

Imagine coming home from work quickly on your lunch break to walk the dog, grab a bite and tidy a bit before company comes over tonight. But as you walk into your kitchen your sandals splash in the shallow pool of water around your island coming from your new stainless steel refrigerator and you can still hear the water running. You try your best to pull out the fridge and stop the leak and after a few attempts you are able to stop the water rushing out the back of your fridge. After turning off the supply line to your fridge and trying to sop up the water with towels you notice that your toe kicks are starting to wrap and pull off the island. Unsure of what to do next you think to yourself, well I got most of the water, it was just water anyway it can’t be that big a deal. You go back to work and don’t really think about the water damage you had except that it ruined your lunch break. A week or so latter you start to smell something musty and notice that some of your hardwoods are warped. Now you know it’s time to get help but who do you call? Who even helps with these things?
