4 Water-Related Problems to Watch For

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

The structural integrity of your commercial property in Athens,GA relies on an intact, dependable plumbing system. When something goes wrong, such as a blocked sewer, it can cause significant water damage that can end up costing thousands of dollars to repair.

Old Sewer Lines

If your building has cast iron sewer lines, they may have been installed more than 25 years ago. Remember nothing lasts. Some signs that your sewer lines are deteriorating include:

  • Frequent drain clogs
  • Sludge or warped appearance in landscaping
  • Smell of sewer gas

Although your plumber may be able to repair worn out pipes, your blocked sewer could mean you need to replace the whole system.

Pipe Damage

Pipe breaks can cause quite a bit of damage. Inside and out of your building, factors such as extreme temperatures and poor water quality can weaken pipes. Call water restoration specialists as soon as you notice the problem to avoid secondary damage such as mold growth.

Toilet Backup

A clogged toilet on one floor can not only cause problems in that restroom but also in the floor below as it seeps down through the ceiling. This is a common occurrence in a commercial building. By having restrooms frequently not just for cleanliness but also for necessary maintenance.

Foundation Damage

If your foundation cracks, you will likely see the effects when cracks show up on your exterior walls or when the building shift makes doors harder to open and close.
A blocked sewer doesn't just affect your plumbing system; this can cause problems throughout your entire building. Fast detection and remediation are the important to minimizing the damage sewer problems can cause.

Spring into Clean with SERVPRO of Athens!

3/30/2018 (Permalink)

It is time for spring cleaning!  SERVPRO of Athens is a phone call away from helping you in your home or business.  Listed are some helpful hints for spring cleaning from Readers Digest:

  • Make doormats welcoming- Clean them by shaking them and washing them if able. Doormats stop most dirt and debris from entering the home so keep them clean enough to function at peak efficiency.
  • Clean carpet and upholstery- Cleaning carpet and upholstery will get your furniture ready for another year of wear.
  • Finish your floors- Protect your floors by waxing or applying a sealer. These applications will add a protective buffer and could help them last longer.
  • Wash walls, cabinets, baseboards, and woodwork- Dust and debris collects around baseboards and clings to vertical surfaces. Use a sponge and mild cleaning solution to wash all surfaces.  Use two buckets:  one for the cleaning solution and another for wringing the sponge.
  • Vacuum with intelligence- Move the big items a little to the left or right, vacuum, and move the furniture back into place.
  • Clean ceiling fixtures- Remove dust and dirt from ceiling fans and air-conditioner vents with a cloth and vacuum with a soft nozzle attachment.

SERVPRO of Athens can help you with your spring cleaning needs.  Carpet and upholstery cleaning, duct cleaning, detailed cleaning, drapery cleaning, and tile & grout cleaning are all services that SERVPRO of Athens offers to get your cleaning needs completed in a flash.
