Mold in Basement Mold in Basment

Flooding and water emergencies aren’t always convenient, but SERVPRO of Bartow County is Here To Help. We understand the urgency, which is why we provide emergency cleaning and restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including all holidays.

Water Damage-24/7

Water damage poses significant dangers to both homes and businesses. Beyond the immediate structural harm caused by flooding and moisture infiltration, there are longer-term consequences that can jeopardize the safety and integrity of the property. Mold and mildew growth, which can occur within as little as 48 hours after water exposure, not only compromise indoor air quality but also pose health risks to occupants, including respiratory issues and allergic reactions. Furthermore, water damage can lead to the deterioration of building materials such as drywall, wood, and metal, potentially weakening the structural integrity of the property over time. Additionally, water damage may also result in electrical hazards, as moisture can seep into wiring and appliances, increasing the risk of short circuits and fires. Addressing water damage promptly with professional restoration services is crucial to mitigate these dangers and prevent further harm to the property and its occupants.

Water Damage is Invasive

Water damage is incredibly invasive. It has the potential to swiftly infiltrate your home, seeping into floors, walls, furniture, and various belongings. At SERVPRO of Bartow, we waste no time in responding to your call, arriving promptly to initiate the water extraction process. This immediate action is crucial in mitigating damage and minimizing cleaning and restoration costs.

First Thing

Water rapidly spreads throughout your property, saturating everything in its path. Absorption occurs into walls, floors, upholstery, and belongings. Furniture finishes may bleed, leading to permanent staining on carpets. Paper goods such as photographs and books begin to swell and warp.


Within 24 hours, drywall begins to swell and break down. Metal surfaces start to tarnish. Furniture may swell and crack. Dyes and inks from cloth and paper goods spread, causing staining. A musty odor becomes noticeable.

First Week

Within a week, mold and mildew may begin to grow and spread. Doors, windows, and studs swell and warp. Metal begins to rust and corrode. Furniture warps and shows signs of mold. Paint starts to blister. Wood flooring swells and warps. Serious bio-hazard contamination becomes a possibility.

After a Week

Left unattended long term restoration time and cost escalate significantly; replacing contaminated materials and structural rebuilding may be extensive. Structural safety, mold growth, and bio-hazard contaminants pose serious risks to occupants.

Here To Help

In essence, the longer water damage is left unattended, the more severe and costly the consequences become. That's why it's imperative to act swiftly and decisively in the event of a water emergency.

At SERVPRO of Bartow County, we are committed to providing timely and effective solutions to mitigate the effects of water damage on your property.

SERVPRO of South Atlanta Presents: Black History Month

7 Black Woman Firefighters These seven women broke the gender barrier becoming the first black women hired by AFRD

Fire Station No. 16 in Atlanta holds significant historical importance as it served as the pioneering ground for the city's first African American firefighters. Stemming from a pivotal moment during the Civil Rights Movement, Ivan Allen responded to the Black Community's plea by authorizing the hiring of the initial 16 black male firefighters. This groundbreaking decision marked a turning point in Atlanta's history, symbolizing a crucial step towards integration within the city's fire department. These 16 men, trained and housed at Station No. 16, courageously paved the way for further diversity and inclusivity, laying the foundation for Atlanta's Fire Department to evolve into a force comprised of over 50% African American personnel today.

Honoring Atlanta’s Black Heroes

At SERVPRO of South Atlanta, our close collaboration with first responders not only fosters a deep appreciation for their historic journey in safeguarding lives, but also strengthens the bonds of camaraderie and mutual respect within our community. It's moments like these, honoring the resilience and dedication of those who have paved the way for progress, that remind us of the importance of acknowledging and celebrating Black History. And there is A LOT to celebrate! We take immense pride in standing alongside these courageous individuals and recognizing their invaluable contributions to the safety and well-being of our neighborhoods.

The Magnificent Seven

Among the beneficiaries of the initial 16 hires were the Magnificent Seven, a group of pioneering African American female firefighters. Liz R. Summers, Lisa Bradley, Sheila Calloway, Louvenia Jenkins, Janice Jones, Sheila Kirkland, and Emma C. Morris emerged as trailblazers in their field. Their entry into the Atlanta Fire Department marked a significant milestone in 1977 when Mayor Maynard Jackson made a committed effort to recruit the first seven female African American firefighters. 

Bravery At Its Best

Undoubtedly, these women confronted and surmounted numerous challenges throughout their careers, both within the fire department and from the communities they served. Their journey as the first female African American firefighters in Atlanta is a testament to their extraordinary resilience, determination, and bravery. They embody qualities of perseverance, endurance, grit, courage, and tenacity, serving as inspirational figures whose accomplishments transcend the barriers they faced. Their unwavering commitment to their profession and their communities serves as a beacon of hope and empowerment for generations to come.

Our Pioneers Today

Presently, Liz R. Summers savors her retirement following a distinguished career that includes notable achievements, such as being part of Atlanta's first mother and son firefighting team and rising to the rank of battalion chief. Sheila Calloway, along with an accomplished career is also mother to renowned recording artist CeeLo Green, she has left her mark on Atlanta's firefighting legacy. Additionally, Emma C. Morris made historical achievement as Atlanta's inaugural female fire truck driver, showcasing the groundbreaking contributions of these remarkable women in the firefighting profession.

SERVPRO of South Atlanta’s Most Heart Felt Thanks

As we reflect on the rich tapestry of Black History Month, it becomes evident that the legacy of resilience, determination, and groundbreaking achievements continues to shape our communities.

Stay Ahead of the Game: Preventing Water Damage from Appliances in Your Home

5/4/2023 (Permalink)

leaking hot water heater Even a small leak from your water heater can cause big problems. Don't ignore the signs of water damage and call SERVPRO of Marietta West.

Water damage caused by malfunctioning appliances can lead to extensive and costly repairs. Therefore, it's essential to be proactive and prevent water damage from happening in the first place. In this blog post, we will explore the steps you can take to prevent water damage caused by appliances and how SERVPRO of Marietta West can help you in case of a water damage emergency.

Regular Maintenance of Appliances

One of the most effective ways to prevent water damage caused by appliances is by ensuring that your appliances are in good working condition. This can be done through regular maintenance, such as inspecting your appliances for any signs of leaks, wear and tear, and damage.

For instance, if you notice that your washing machine is vibrating more than usual or making strange noises, it could be a sign that it needs maintenance or repair. Ignoring these warning signs can lead to a breakdown of the machine, which could cause water damage to your home.

Similarly, you should inspect your dishwasher for leaks or clogs in the drain line, which could cause water to overflow and flood your kitchen. You should also check your refrigerator's water line for any signs of damage, such as leaks or cracks, as this can lead to water damage to your floors or walls.

Replacing Aging Appliances

While regular maintenance can prolong the life of your appliances, they will eventually wear out and need replacement. Therefore, it's crucial to replace aging appliances to avoid water damage caused by malfunctions.

As a rule of thumb, you should replace your appliances every ten to fifteen years. This ensures that you always have the safest and most efficient products in your house, reducing the risk of water damage.

Choosing Quality Replacement Parts

When replacing parts in your appliances, it's crucial to choose quality replacement parts from reputable brands. Using substandard parts can lead to premature wear and tear, which can cause leaks and other malfunctions that lead to water damage.

Handling Simple Repairs

While some repairs may require the services of a professional, you can handle simple repairs on your own. For instance, replacing seals, tubes, and pipelines can help avoid wear and tear and potential water damage.

Preventing Water Damage from HVAC Units

Your HVAC unit is also prone to water damage. You should regularly check for moisture around the vents and look for puddles around the main unit, which are indications of an emerging problem that could lead to water damage and mold growth throughout your home.

Help from SERVPRO of Marietta West

Despite your best efforts, water damage can still happen due to factors beyond your control, such as natural disasters or faulty plumbing. In such cases, you need the help of a professional water damage restoration company like SERVPRO of Marietta West.

Our team of experts is highly trained and equipped with state-of-the-art tools to handle any water damage emergency promptly. We use advanced techniques to extract water, dry your home, and prevent mold growth. Our goal is to restore your home to its pre-damaged state and get you back to your daily routine as soon as possible.

Preventing water damage caused by appliances requires regular maintenance, timely replacement of aging appliances, and the use of quality replacement parts. In case of a water damage emergency, you can rely on SERVPRO of Marietta West to provide fast and effective restoration services.

Teaching Fire Safety Basics to Your Staff | SERVPRO of Marietta West

4/11/2023 (Permalink)

Experiencing an emergency situation at work can be scary, especially for your employees if they don’t know how to react. These types of situations can often get out of hand if your team doesn’t have the proper training. This is especially true when it comes to fires!

Everyone on your team should be trained on the basics of fire safety so that your crew understands the procedures when a fire does break out. You might actually be surprised by how many employees of yours don’t actually know how to even use a fire extinguisher!

Taking the time to teach them all about fire safety now can help keep everyone safe and can help them better handle an emergency when the time comes.

Starting at the Beginning

According to OSHA, if your business has a fire extinguisher on the property (it should), you are required to provide basic training on its operation. That not only includes teaching your employees how to use it, but also explaining the difference situations when using one is necessary.

Start at the very beginning and let your employees handle the fire extinguisher. Show them how to hold it, aim and how to pull the pin. It is also important to teach them about the importance of standing at least six feet from the fire and to spray in a sweeping motion across the flames.

During your classroom instruction, consider introducing the acronym PASS to help your employees remember the steps easier. These fundamentals on fire extinguishers should be reviewed every year and any time a new employee joins your staff. Don’t let your veteran staff skip out on the yearly training either!

In addition, it is important to designate roles to each individual team member for emergency situations. Have someone be responsible for grabbing the fire extinguisher, someone to call 911 and someone to help get employees and patrons to safety. This can help make the process run smoother and leave nothing to chance.

Knowing When to Back Away

Different businesses require different types of fire extinguishers and response methods. For example, the response to a fire in the business district around Glover Park will require different strategies than for a fire that breaks out at a restaurant along North Marietta Parkway.

Knowing when it is appropriate to fight the flames and when to seek safety and allow the authorities to work is crucial to your employee’s safety.

Fire extinguishers can certainly save lives and minimize damages, but fires can also get out of hand really quickly. Make sure your employees understand that their safety is your No. 1 priority.

Having a workplace fire strategy in place can guarantee that your employees will react quickly and effectively during an emergency situation. Take the time to meet with your team and your business will directly benefit.

A Well-Kept Roof Could Protect Your Marietta Home | SERVPRO of Marietta West

4/7/2023 (Permalink)

Up close view of roof gutter system Cleaning your gutters my be a hassle, but can be one of the most critical household maintenance items.

The spring season has arrived in Marietta, bringing with it the possibility of severe weather. Warm weather and blossoming trees arrive along with dangers like strong gusts and torrential rain.

The weather in the coming months will be a mixed bag, so it’s a good idea to prepare your home for the worst. Because your roof is one of the most crucial structural elements of your home, you should begin here as you make preparations.

In addition to these springtime weather risks, extensive water damage can also be brought on by roof leaks, damage and neglect. By starting at the top, you can protect your entire Marietta home from various forms of roof-related water damage.

Prepare for a Severe Spring

Spring tends to bring some harsh weather to Marietta, and when it does, it might come out of nowhere and catch you by surprise. Tornadoes are a fairly prevalent threat, and you may have witnessed them wreaking havoc in our area before spring even arrived.

Tornadoes can expose homes and businesses to the consequences of significant wind damage, with roofs being a common target. Shingles can be ripped off, tree limbs can fall and if the weather is extreme enough, your entire roof can be ripped off your house! Damage like this can send water damage straight into your home when the spring showers start to pour.

Keep Things in Check

The types of damage outlined above can be frightening to think about, but as long as your roof isn’t too old and you work hard to keep things maintained, you can prevent utter disaster during the spring season.

Your gutters are an easy place to start as you work to prevent water from seeping in via your roof. Climb up and inspect your gutters and downspouts to ensure they are clear of debris and have not become detached during a prior storm.

Keep your roof strong and secure by searching for signs of wear and tear like loose shingles, attic issues, damaged seals and mold growth. Trim any loose or overhanging branches that hang over your roof to avoid a future roof disaster.

Make an effort to complete these duties on a monthly basis or at the very least after any severe weather event, especially during the spring months. This can help you prevent damage before it worsens, prepare for future storms and detect leaks before they become a problem.

Watch Out for Leaks

Along with keeping a constant eye on your roof for damage, it’s equally important to regularly search for leaks inside your roof and attic. Leaks hidden in your roof can quickly worsen before you can avert them, causing damage throughout your entire home.

Look for wet spots, discoloration and a musty odor in your ceiling and attic to help you locate any existing leaks. It can also help to get up on your roof and look for any openings, cracks or gaps to see if there are any places where water is getting in.

Even if you don’t have any leaks present, excess moisture during the spring season can get trapped in your attic and lead to serious mold growth. Be sure to supply your attic with proper ventilation so mold growth won’t even be in the equation if you wind up with a springtime leak.

Our SERVPRO specialists are available 24/7 to respond to your water emergencies! Give us a call for rapid restorations in Marietta.

How You Can Stay on Top of Bathroom Water Damage | SERVPRO of Marietta West

4/4/2023 (Permalink)

cabinet under sink rotted due to water damage If your Marietta home has suffered water damage call SERVPRO of Marietta West to restore your water damaged property 24-hours a day 365 days a year.

If you consider your previous battles with water damage, the bathroom may be one of the rooms in your home where you’ve had the most significant trouble. From leaks to moisture problems, there are so many areas in the bathroom that can create expensive water damage issues.

But you don’t have to let water damage ruin your bathroom! There are numerous methods for keeping water at bay so that you may continue to enjoy the convenience of your bathrooms.

Read on to discover how to avoid damage by keeping water damage at a minimum.

Look for Leakage

Leakage is a huge issue that can cost you, especially if you fail to get it fixed early on. Searching for leaks regularly around your toilet, shower and sink can allow you to stop water damage in its tracks before it gets the chance to worsen.

Wet areas around your bathroom fixtures are apparent evidence of a leak, but other clues will be less obvious without a thorough inspection. Discoloration, bubbling, slow drains and a substantially higher water bill are all signs to watch for.

Get Moisture Under Control

When moisture in your bathroom is out of control, you may notice concerns that are potentially more serious than water damage. Mold thrives in dark, moist areas, making your bathroom the perfect breeding ground.

To handle bathroom moisture, consider installing an exhaust fan and if you have windows, open them after every bath or shower. Taking cooler showers might also help minimize excess condensation—if you can stand a chilly shower!

Fix the Damage

A damaged bathroom in need of repairs or touchups can allow water damage to develop much more easily. Broken or damaged tiles might cause water to leak beneath your floor, where you can’t see the damage. Discolored or warping walls could indicate water is sneaking into areas it is not supposed to be.

The simplest way to handle these concerns is to perform simple fixes, some of which can even be done by yourself! Consider upgrading old bathroom appliances to avoid malfunctions or failures in the future. Repair any damaged flooring and use caulk to cover any cracks or gaps around your fixtures and countertops.

If DIY efforts aren’t enough to kick water damage to the curb, reach out to the pros at SERVPRO of Marietta West. We can pick up where you left off to restore your bathroom to its former glory.

Are you battling bathroom water damage? Our water damage specialists can come to your rescue to repair the damage and revive your bathroom.
