Our marketers love to network!
Our Marketing Representatives, Renae and Kate, love to market and network! There are many positive aspects about networking and meeting people at events. They just went to a Women in Construction lunch yesterday and met a ton of new people! This is great for SERVPRO because the construction department is growing more and more every day! The more people you meet, the more likely it is that they will remember you when they are experiencing a disaster! You never know who you might meet that may become a new client. When disaster strikes, it is never scheduled.
Not only is it beneficial when we meet potential clients, but it might work in our marketers favor as well! It is always good to meet new people and potentially expand your business!

SERVPRO helping out the Wildcats!
Last year, at the Wildcats game against the Georgia Bulldogs on January 31st at Rupp Arena, several of our players were unable to play due to sickness. We got the call from the department of athletics that the University of Kentucky basketball Head Coach John Calipari wanted SERVPRO to come in and clean and sanitize the Wildcat Coal Lodge where all the players live to help prevent the sickness from spreading. How could we say no to our University of Kentucky Wildcats? We went in the next day and cleaned and sanitized all of the affected areas. SERVPRO always does whatever is necessary to get the job done. We even got a personal shoutout from Coach Cal himself! It always nice to help out our local team. GO CATS!!!
Water Loss after a Winter Storm
A few weeks ago, the entire east coast was hit with a massive cold front. The eastern part of the United States didn't just feel the below freezing temperatures, but almost the entire area experienced a massive snow fall. Even areas in the southern part of the country experienced a large amount of snow. In Kentucky, we had a little snow. However, SERVPRO received a great deal of frozen pipes and water loss.
In this picture, it shows the water loss in this building from frozen pipes. This was a large commercial building with quite a bit of area affected. Typically, when pipes freeze, they warm up within a few days. When the warming process starts, the pipes begin to burst. After that, the building typically suffers a large water loss. There are ways to lower the chances of a burst pipes. However, the cold weather hit the area so quickly, most of the properties affected could not take preventative measures.

Basement Water Damage in a Commercial Building
Last week this local commercial building suffered a large water loss. In this particular instance, our SERVPRO team was called after hours to respond to the unpleasant surprise for the local building. Our SERVPRO team responds day and night and is always "faster to any disaster".
In this case, the water affected a large portion of the basement in a massive building. The basement had concrete and carpet floors that were affected by the water. Unfortunately, some of the area was an office building. Luckily, the SERVPRO team responds very quickly and they were able to minimize the water seeping into the carpeted area.
The first night our SERVPRO team responded, the water level was higher than expected. But in just a few short hours our SERVPRO team had the water drained and were beginning to clean the area. After the water was drained, they could begin the drying process. Luckily, our team has all of the necessary equipment and we were out of there in just a few days!
Have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!
Our SERVPRO team wants everyone have a great Thanksgiving. While you're cooking that turkey, surrounded by family and friends, we want you to be safe too! In just case, we have some fire safety tips provided by the NFPA to keep you safe this holiday season!
- Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
- Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
- Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
- Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
- Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
- Keep knives out of the reach of children.
- Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
- Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
- Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
- Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.
Water Damage at Local Commercial Business
SERVPRO has been at this local commercial business for almost two weeks as a busted water pipe in a bathroom has affected three floors in the building. The first thing our SERVPRO team must do when arriving at a job with water loss is assess the damage. Our team goes into the building and investigates where the water leak began. In this case, a water pipe burst, causing multiple areas of the building to be affected.
Unfortunately, this was a building with many offices with workers and many others that occupy the busy hallways. Luckily, our SERVPRO team have made working in the area possible! While there are quite a few dryers and air movers in the building, people that use this building daily, can still treat their work day as if it is completely normal. Many times, with a water loss this severe, it may be necessary to relocate.
Our SERVPRO team has been present every day to work on the damages done by the water leak. Every room will be dried out and the area will be completely back to new. As our motto states, SERVPRO will make it look “Like it never even happened.”
Getting rid of Water Damage at a Local Building
A few weeks ago, a local building suffered severe water damage. Members of our SERVPRO team have been at the local establishment everyday to dry out the affected areas. When a large amount of a building is damaged by water, the areas need to be assessed for the severity of impairment.
All areas need to be dried as best as possible. The other areas need to be addressed in other ways if the severity is high. For example, some areas of the wall may have to be cut out in order to prevent mold from growing. However, in this instance, SERVPRO is using specific tools in order to help quicken the drying process.
In the featured picture, are team is using a dehumidifier and a duct tube to help localize heat to the specific areas that need to be dried. This process will get rid of any water that remains in the walls or ceiling.
