Do you have rental Insurance?

8/11/2023 (Permalink)

Water damage can be extremely stressful to deal with, especially when the home is owned by you. So, what should you do if water damage occurs to the property you’re renting? Well, there are a few steps to take:

  1. If water damage is occurring, you should shut off the water as soon as possible. Be prepared by asking where the water shut off is located.
  2. Do your best to soak up any standing water, with a shop vac or towels.
  3. Report it to your landlord as soon as you can and let them know they should consider having a Mitigation company out to assist 
  4. If any of your personal property was affected, consider filing an insurance claim for your belongings. These are not covered by the homeowners policy.

We hope this helps guide you through a stressful and confusing time. Our team at SERVPRO of Clallam and Jefferson CO. can help assist with the cleaning, dry out and even your content damaged by the water damage in your home, just give us a call at 360-683-0773.

Insulation ... an itchy situation

2/8/2021 (Permalink)


Rodents, live animals, water, and lifespan can all result in damaged insulation. We specialize in safe insulation removal and replacement for residential properties.

It is never a good idea to attempt to remove damaged insulation yourself. Effective insulation removal requires certified and trained professionals to be done safely and efficiently.

  • Remove Support System:

    When needed, we will remove any existing support systems such as twine, wood slats, and metal rods and properly dispose of them.

  • Vacuum Insulation:

    We use a specialized vacuum to remove insulation and move it directly into a filtered bag in our truck.

  • Proper Disposal:

    All insulation and materials used will be properly disposed of at a local transfer station.

  • Deodorize and Disinfect:

    Upon completion, we will deodorize and disinfect the area with 100% organic bacteria-enzyme product.

Winter is here !

  • Insulate your home: install storm windows or cover windows with plastic from the inside to provide insulation.
  • Have sufficient heating fuel because regular sources may be cut off. Have emergency heating equipment and fuel.
  • Never run a generator inside a home or garage to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Always keep running generators in an open and ventilated area. Plug all necessary appliances directly into the generator.
  • To keep pipes from freezing, wrap them in insulation, and allow a small stream of water to run from faucets. 
  • To maintain refrigerated and frozen foods during a power outage, open the doors to those appliances as little as possible.
  • Build an “emergency supply kit” (water, food, medications, flashlight, batteries, etc.)
  • Winterize your vehicle and keep the gas tank full (to keep the fuel line from freezing).
  • Keep a car charger for your cell phone in your vehicle.
  • Unplug all other appliances and leave only one light switched on. There is an added risk of power surges occurring that can damage anything plugged in.
  • Trim tree branches in your yard before the storm season begins in your area.

Do you smell something? Odors bothering you?

6/2/2020 (Permalink)

Have you come home and smelled something that is not quite right? What do you do? Where do you start?  Here at SERVPRO of Clallam and Jefferson County we are professionally trained with the proper equipment to identify and eliminate these offensive odors. Odors can come from within your home (ducts, walls, crawlspaces etc.) as well as the surrounding areas outside your home. These odors can range from anything from a rodent in the ducting system to mold and mildew in your walls. Maybe you had a small fire and you cannot get that smell out your home by yourself. Many will try and mask these odors or take short cuts in trying to hide them. That simply will not work when your odor problem is serious or persistent. Our employees will take the time to efficiently determine the source of the odor and professionally clean, disinfect, and deodorize these affected areas. SERVPRO has developed in house specialty cleaners and deodorizers to wipe out those awful smells. Here at Clallam and Jefferson County SERVPRO we can offer commercial grade OZONE treatments for these hard odors. The science of identifying and eliminating these odors can be very tricky as to why SERVPRO teaches IICRC technical classes in the proper removal of odors.  This gives us the knowledge in determining the source of the odor so we can properly eliminate, and it can be removed over time without a trace. Whether you have a quick question or would like to hire us to provide these services give us a call at our local office at 360-683-0773.
