Water Damage Most Common Causes of Water Damage Call SERVPRO of Henry & Spalding Counties- 770-997-5689

These are some of the most common causes of water damage in your home

  • Bursting or leaking pipes- This issue can occur suddenly or over a long period of time, specially if it happens behind big appliances like a fridge or dishwasher. A small drip over time can create major issues under your floors or behind walls.
  • Plumbing issues- Older homes are more likely to have pluming issues. If you see an increase in your water bill, call a plumber FAST so they can tell you of any hidden issues in your home.
  • Poor gutter maintenance- You should create a routine and start inspecting your gutters at least once a year (more if your house is surrounded by trees). Poor gutter maintenance can cause major water damage in your house, roof, siding, windows, trim and doors. Inspect the gutters and make sure there are no leaking seams, standing water, missing flashing, and make sure that the downspouts are installed properly.
  • HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) Unit issues- Make sure you inspect your HVAC system regularly, because it could be malfunctioning, circulating dust, malodors and other pollutants.

SERVPRO of Clayton County is always available to handle any water damage emergency.

Water Damage Determining what type of water damage you are dealing with Call SERVPRO of Clayton County if you have any questions- 770-997-5689

When our technicians go to a home or business, the first thing they have to do is determine what kind of water damage they are dealing with. In the industry we use Categories to determine if we are dealing with clean water, gray water or black water.

Category 1 (clean water) damage is usually from a broken pipes, rain or snow water, overflowing sinks, etc.

Category 2 (gray water) damage does not contain human waste products. It could be due to a leaking washing machine, or a leak in an aquarium.

Category 3 (black water) damage is the most contaminated type of water loss, and it comes from sewage back ups or floodwater from natural disasters. If you are dealing with this type of loss, call a professional immediately.

Why SERVPRO Don't let mold take over your attic, call SERVPRO of Clayton County today! Don't let mold take over your attic, call SERVPRO of Clayton County today!

When was the last time you went up to the attic? It was probably during the holidays and you probably were not checking for signs of mold. What about the crawl space? Well most people would avoid going down into that dark place where eight legged creatures are hiding in dark places. The attic and crawl space are probably the scariest places in your home (we hope), and because they are scary we tend to avoid going anywhere near them if we can avoid it. In our experience, 95% of all mold problems in crawl spaces and attics go totally unnoticed for long periods of time due to the fact that most people do not spend any time there.

You will probably find mold in crawl spaces and attics during a home inspection, when homeowners are getting ready to put their house on the market. It is shocking to think that mold was present for who knows how long!

Don’t wait until you are ready to get your house inspected, be proactive and act now! Get a flashlight and go up there from time to time and look for signs of mold. If you see mold, call us right away, we can help you make it “Like it never even happened.”

This event brings together business leaders, educators, county representatives, and the whole Henry County community to raise money for a great cause. The Ferst Readers of Henry County provides children in this county with books from birth until they turn five years old.

Everybody participating in this event has so much fun each year because each table has a theme based on a book. This year we chose to decorate our table inspired by the book Stars by Mary Lyn Ray.

The keynote speaker was Dr. Mary Elizabeth Davis, the superintendent of Henry County Schools. During her speech, she emphasized the importance and the huge impact that reading to our children from a young age helps them succeed later in life.
