  • Contact trained professionals

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.

Lightning Truths and Myths

It's important that we know our facts about the weather patterns to prepare for any future emergencies.  Learn the common myths and facts about lightning during spring!
 

Myth: If it's not raining, then there is no danger from lightning. 
Fact: Lightning often strikes outside of heavy rain and may occur as far as 10 miles away from any rainfall.  This is especially true in the western United States where thunderstorms sometimes produce very little rain. 

Myth: The rubber soles of shoes or rubber tires on a car protect you from being struck by lightning. 
Fact: Rubber-soled shoes and rubber tires proved no protection from lightning.  The steel frame of a hard-topped vehicle provides increased protection if you are not touching metal.  Although you may be injured if lightning strikes your car, you are much safer inside a vehicle than outside. 

Myth: "Heat lightning" occurs after very hot summer days and poses no threat. 
Fact: "Heat lightning" is a term used to describe lightning from a thunderstorm too far away for thunder to be heard.

Kitchen Appliance Maintenance

SERVPRO employees working SERVPRO of Sugar Land is faster to any size disaster!

Some of the home floods commonly occur in the kitchen due to its many water outlets.  For most homes, the kitchen commonly incorporates multiple appliances that connect to a water supply line.   It is important to understand that water damages that occur in the kitchen may possibly spread past the kitchen and create larger damages throughout one's home.  Keep your home prepared by periodically checking the appliances to help reduce water damage incidents from occurring.   However, a few common items that may lead to a kitchen flood are as follows:


Dishwasher
Over time, the water supply line in a dishwasher may degrade.  This can lead to water leaking into enclosed areas under the appliance and rupture entirely.  Check this line twice a year by removing the kick plate at the front of the dishwasher and use a flashlight to inspect the space and surrounding areas.  If the area is wet with no explanation, this should be taken as a red flag.  The dishwasher water supply line shut off should be located under the kitchen sink; turn it off and call a plumber. 

Under Sink System
Underneath the sink, you may find a water filtration system.  As time passes, the lines can degrade and rupture.  A crack in the line can lead to flooding and potentially much worse.  Check the sink twice a year to avoid any costly damages.  

Refrigerator
Moving the refrigerator may be tricky sometimes.  It's important to be cautious about its placement.  Moving the refrigerator too close to the wall may kink or break the water supply line.  However, having the refrigerator too far out may cause potential over-stress on the line and potentially cause the line to rupture.    Keep in mind, the plastic water supply line degrades over time and can crack or break.   To prevent water damages from potentially happening, it is advisable to remove the plastic line and replace it with a copper or stainless-steel line that has better durability.  

Being prepared can help prevent a disastrous situation.   By regularly checking on these appliances, you will help avoid any catastrophic damages.  SERVPRO of Sugar Land is faster to any sized disaster, and we are here to help 24/7/365 to make it "Like it never even happened."

Leaking Sink?

2/2/2021 (Permalink)

Kitchen with green water Don't let a leak underneath your sink dampen your mood.

Have you ever had to deal with a leak underneath the sink before?  It may go unnoticed for a while because it may be deep in the back or just a tiny leak.  By the time it has been discovered, potential damage has occurred leading to a costly mess.  It’s a good idea to have a routine check up under the sink and behind the cabinets to make sure there is no moisture.  However, if there is water damage here are a few things tips:

Clear out the area under your sink.  This will give you more space and a better view to access the pipes around.

Find the source.  This oftentimes could be due to a clog, a loose compression nut, or even a pipe that is not fitted correctly.

Repair the leak.  After the leak has been spotted, it is important to get this fixed to prevent further water damage.

If you have tried locating the leak but are still struggling to find the leak or the problem may consist of more complications, consider calling a professional plumber to help with the situation.
