There are many occasions that arise that we need to bring in temporary HVAC air conditioning units.  We have a GREAT working relationship with Sunbelt Rentals who is a preferred vendor through our corporate office.

This particular job occurred in the dead of the summer. The large building sustained some much damage that the building's HVAC systems had to be shut down until cleaning could be performed.

Luckily for us, the insurance adjuster approved for this necessary piece of equipment be able to be brought on-site for our crews to be able to work in the 95+ degree heat with humidity over 90% as well. 

The temporary air conditioning helped aid in our drying process as well as provided a safe environment from the heat and humidity at the time of the loss.

We were able to continue our work timely due to the rental of this temporary air conditioning unit.

How to tips on Fire Proofing your home

Burnt electrical outlet in a kitchen Burnt electrical outlet in a kitchen that sparked and caught fire.

At SERVPRO of Hanover, Goochland & Caroline we see a lot of house fires both large and small. 

Here are some tips to fire proof your home:

Access your equipment - make sure you have smoke detectors  inside bedrooms and on every level of your home.  Change the batteries in your smoke detectors twice a year.  Spring forward and Fall back time changes are good way to remember when to change your smoke detector's batteries.

Close the door prior to going to bed.  Half of the fatal home fires start between 11pm and 7am.  Shutting bedroom doors dramatically slows the spread of smoke, flames and heat.  This can buy you crucial time to get out of the house safely.

Have an Escape Plan for everyone including your beloved pets.  Identify at least 2 escape routes for each family member and practice twice a year.  If you have kids, make sure they know what the smoke alarm sounds like in case you cannot get to them to help them escape.

Never go back inside - you will risk smoke inhalation.  Wait for the trained professionals to help you when they arrive. 

We want you to stay safe.

Please follow these tips to help Fire proof your home.

This home in Ashland, VA caught on fire from the homeowner's dehumidifier she was using in her basement.  She had just gotten home from a long at work and heard a weird noise coming from her basement.

Her next call was to her local SERVPRO!  She needed our help performing fire damage clean up on the main level of the home and heavy duty cleaning in the basement that called for soda blasting and spray sealing.
