Southern Snow Storms
Dottie enjoying the snow!
When we get snow in the South, towns shut down and a lot of people are put in danger due to poor road conditions. We wanted to remind everybody that if your home or business was affected by this recent snow storm in our area, please call us at any time. We are here to help. We hope that all of our local communities are out there staying warm and everybody got to enjoy the snow while they could. You can see from the image on this post that one of our office pups was really enjoying it so we had to make her model to post the image to our social media!
We'd love to see your snow day photos so tag us on social media and let us see them! We hope everybody is having a great day.

We'll Find It!
It can't hide from us!
We post blogs often about hidden mold because it can be in hard to find areas and cause a lot of problems for your home and your health. If you have any concerns about mold in your home or business, please give us a call today at (334)-821-4858. Our employees are highly trained and have the knowledge and equipment to find the mold that may be causing problems in your home.
As you can see in this photo, a small leak in a pipe makes the perfect breeding ground for mold to grow and continue to grow where your eyes may not be able to see. Check often under cabinets and ensure that your pipes are not leaking. It is a simple pre-caution that may be able to help you avoid a mold remediation!

California currently has four major fires raging in their state in different areas. Officials say that this is due to last winter being one filled with more rain than prior years which then left the hillsides covered in vegetation. However, when their dry summer rolled around, it turned that grass into tinder which become the fuel that allowed this to spread so easily with the strong winds. These pictures are absolutely heartbreaking and look almost like something out of a movie but it is very, very real for those in the area.
Although we are here in Alabama, we wanted to provide a resource for those who may have loved ones in the area. Regardless of the extent of the damage, SERVPRO Franchise Professionals can handle any size disaster. During catastrophic events like the wildfires in Southern California, our Disaster Recovery Team can respond quickly with additional resources. You can call 1-800-SERVPRO to locate your nearest franchise. We have a network of over 1,700+ franchises so please know that we are all here to help.
Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with those being affected by this absolutely devastating event.

2017: Storm Travels Review
Our guys heading down to Florida to help with the Hurricane Irma aftermath!
This year we got to travel a lot. Unfortunately, it was because our nation was hit with quite a few disasters along the way. Hurricane season was rough- especially for Texas and Florida. We are so lucky to have gotten to go and serve those communities as if they were our own.
As we reflect back on our 2017 year as a business, this is something that we felt was worth noting. You can see our previous blogs about these storms but we just wanted to write one more as the year is coming to an end. THANK YOU Texas and Florida for allowing us to do our part after your disasters. We hope that as 2017 is ending and 2018 is beginning, those affected by these storms will continue to find comfort and continue to get back to normal. We know that dealing with a disaster is never easy and especially at that volume but SERVPRO is so proud to get to be involved and help you get back to pre-storm condition.
Christmas Tree Safety
Have you seen this post by NFPA?
We wanted to post a quick re-cap on our blog so that our customers would be aware of the potential dangers involving a Christmas tree fire!
Step 1: When picking your tree, make sure it is fresh! If needles fall off when you touch it, it is best to find another tree. Look for the perfect tree with healthy green needles!
Step 2: When you place your tree, ensure that it is three feet away from any heat source (fireplace, heat vent, etc.) AND ensure that it is not blocking an exit.
Step 3: Check your lights. Make sure they are for indoor use and always turn them off before leaving your house or going to bed.
Step 4: Water your tree daily!
Last but not least- Step 5: After Christmas is over and you're getting rid of your tree make sure to place the dried out tree outside of your home. Check with your local community to find a recycling program. AND bring your outside lights in to prolong their life!
Check out the article from NFPA for more information and we hope that everybody has a safe and Merry Christmas!
D.Hue on his first day!
If you followed us on social media last year, you know who D.Hue is. If you didn't follow us and you're new here, let me explain. He is on loan to us from the North Pole and he will be here to make sure we get there faster to any disaster during the holidays. D. will be going through intensive re-training (because he has forgotten everything he learned last year) for the next 14 days with Stormy and Blaze. Our employees will look around each day and see if they can find D.Hue in training-- but they can't disturb him because he's trying really hard to get up to speed to help us out. The first person to find him each day can take his daily progress report and sign off on his job well done. They'll take this paper to Beth and they'll be able to get a daily prize (only for the first person to find him!) At the end of the two weeks, the person who has found him the most will receive a grand prize.
So... are you interested? Head over to our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the #DailyDHue to see his every day adventures.
