Water damage can very quickly turn into mold and larger concerns within your home. In fact, mold spores can grow within 240 48hrs if the water damaged areas have not yet started the dry out process. 

Mold requires wet/damp surfaces to grow. The best way to prevent mold growth is to mitigate the water damage as quickly as possible. 

It is important to contact a professional and specialist in water mitigation to ensure the safety of you and your home. Often your home may appear to be dry, but water can flow down the inside of the wall cavities. 

Our trained SERVPRO professional can use meters to measure moisture in your walls to ensure you are not susceptible to mold growth. Call our SERVPRO Hazleton, Dallas, Harvey's Lake Franchises today 24/7 at 570-714-3828.

Home fires can be devastating. Following some basic and simple fire prevention tips and being aware of some common house fire causes can help reduce the risk of a fire in your home. 

1) Be sure to install smoke alarms on all levels of your home or building structure. Smoke alarms should be tested monthly and if not working should have the batteries changed. 

2) One of the most common areas fires begin in a home is in the kitchen. It is important to be sure you do not leave anything flammable near or on your stove. Do not rest any cookbooks or towels on top of your stove. 

3) Another common cause of a house fire is caused by home space heaters and baseboard heaters.  It is important to never leave items too close while the heaters are running. Always follow the instructions for each heating device.

4) Candles should never be left unattended. Keep all matches and lighters away for children's reach. 

5) Do not overload extension cords and power strips

6) You and your family should make and practice a fire escape plan. Clear all clutter that can become an obstacle to escape. 

Should you find yourself in a situation with a home fire it is important to get out and stay out of the house!
