SERVPRO of South Louisville cares about our community.  We have a very generous owner who doesn't hesitate to step up and help the community when needed.  Every Christmas SERVPRO of South Louisville donates, shoes, coats, mittens and hats to an underprivileged school.  These children would otherwise be waiting at the school bus not properly dressed and that's not something we would ever want to happen.

In addition to this donation we have also donated food to food banks around the Louisville Metro area during the global pandemic.  These food banks were in need of these donations during that difficult time for our nation. 

SERVPRO of South Louisville knows that it is important to help our brothers and sisters across the Louisville Metro area because you never know when you might need help yourself one day.

We are proud to be a part of such a wonderful community and look forward to helping with other charitable contributions in the future.

Has Lightening Struck Your Property?

6/20/2022 (Permalink)

 

Lightning is one of the most dangerous parts of a storm, and it is not something we usually think much about. There are so many things that could happen when lightning strikes, and when it strikes your property you could be looking at damage not only to the structure but to the contents of it as well.

The following are things you need to prepare for in the case of a horrible storm:

  • Fire danger
    • Wood and other flammable building materials can easily be ignited anywhere an exposed lightning channel comes in contact with them. It is most common in the attic or on the roof of a house and is easily conducted by wiring or pipes. When the current passes through wires, it will commonly burn them up. This presents a fire ignition hazard in and around the wiring.
  • Power surge damage
    • If any of the home's electrical wiring is struck, the explosive surge can damage even non-electronic appliances that are connected. Even the home's electrical system could experience a surge that could cause potentially significant damage to anything connected to it.

The important thing to remember is that if you find yourself dealing with lightning damage, you can count on SERVPRO of South Louisville for the cleaning and restoration of your property. We’ll use our years of experience to make it, “Like it never even happened.”

In the restoration industry it's important to treat each and every customer with the upmost care because you never know what jobs could come up down the road for that building. 

During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic SERVPRO of South Louisville did many Covid-19 cleanings for local businesses if they had an exposure or positive case. Some commercial properties just wanted to do a better job keeping their facilities clean to ease the mind of their employees.

One of the local businesses we serviced for a Covid-19 cleaning ended up having an electrical fire at their location in May of 2021.  They immediately knew who to call because of the service we provided during their cleaning in 2020.  

 We are HERE TO HELP your business 24/7/365.

Kitchen Fires Are More Dangerous Than You Think!

6/14/2022 (Permalink)

 

Did you know that the leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking.

If you have a small grease cooking fire and decide to fight the fire.

• On the stovetop, smother the flames by sliding a lid over the pan and turning off the burner. Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled.

• For an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed.

For more tips please visit this safety tip sheet.

SERVPRO of South Louisville has the manpower, equipment and chemicals to handle any fire in your home or business.  

We've taken many calls over the years from homeowners who were able to get the grease fire under control but the smoke damage was already noticeable throughout the kitchen and adjoining rooms.  Our crews can find the smoke damage and mitigate it from all surfaces and fabrics.  

Don't hesitate to give us a call at 502-452-1298.

Commercial Fires Are A Growing Concern

5/26/2022 (Permalink)

 

Each year the National Fire Protection Association produces a National Survey to record data and statistics on reported fires throughout the United States. According to the 2005 survey data, 130,000 non-residential fires were reported last year resulting in approximately $2.5 billion in property damages and loss.

Commercial fires are a growing concern not only to employers and employees, but also to property managers and the insurance industry. Commercial fires generally result in a higher monetary loss amount than a typical house fire. According to reports entitled, "Topical Fire Research Series, Volume 3-Issue 10", non-residential structures are often more expensive because the buildings are generally larger than residential structures and the contents of the structure are of higher value. Commercial fires may affect a facility with a lot of square footage, equipment, products and technology, not to mention important data. contracts and customer records. 

SERVPRO Is Unique When It Comes To Working Together!

5/16/2022 (Permalink)

 

One of things that make SERVPRO of South Louisville so unique is how we work with our agents and customers to identify whether a claim should be filed.

SERVPRO has learned that insurance companies do not look favorable on zero paid claims. The insurance companies have found that people who turn in small claims are in effect using their policies as a home maintenance program.

We tell our agents to call us so we can put eyes on the situation. We can tell within a few minutes whether the claim will meet or exceed the customers deductible. This in turn helps the customer avoid higher rates, and the agent avoids a loss that in the long run could affect retention.

SERVPRO was recently asked by an agent to look at a customer‘s basement that had a sump pump malfunction. After reviewing the loss, the damage would not have met the insureds $2500 deductible. This insured avoided a claim and had SERVPRO of South Louisville do the water mitigation. Both parties were happy and we have a very satisfied agent and customer.

Sprinkler Water Damage to Downtown Louisville Skyscraper

5/16/2022 (Permalink)

 

SERVPRO of South Louisville was recently called out to a skyscraper building downtown that had their sprinkler system burst on the twenty-fourth floor, the damage from the water affected all the way down to the twentieth floor. For SERVPRO of South Louisville this was an "all hands on deck" job.  All of the production staff, the marketing team, and several office staff were at the building helping to perform the remediation work. 


There were large amounts of standing water on the affected floors that needed to be extracted.  Our team of certified technicians removed all of the damaged ceiling tiles, extracted the water, and removed any other damaged items in the office areas. 

The next step was to set up air movers and dehumidifiers to begin the dry out process. The equipment was set to get all of the moisture out of the affected areas, the air movers keep the moisture in the air moving around to get closer to the dehumidifier so it can be removed from the air. 

Emergencies like this happen on a regular basis, SERVPRO of South Louisville has the experience and the team needed to take care of the problem and make your residence or commercial building is back to normal, "Like it never even happened."
