servpro techs ready to help In times of disaster SERVPRO of Rapid City is here to help. Call us today (605) 388-3000.

When a disaster hits, whether it's a hurricane, a fire, or anything else, the damage to your house may be terrible. And it isn't easy to know where to start and how to put the parts back together. The notion of cleaning up after a disaster can be debilitating if your house has sustained considerable damage. And this is why SERVPRO restoration is your best bet at restoring your property to its original state. We are available 24/7 to handle every restoration process. So, trust us to get the work done perfectly.

Here are the reasons to hire SERVPRO restoration and clean up company for a complete restoration

We handle smoke and fire damage.

Smoke damage doesn't appear to be that terrible at first glance. A common assumption is that you can use an ordinary home cleaner to remove any stains or markings. It's not only about what you can see that's at risk from smoke damage; it might also be about what you can't see. Even your house's most minor cracks and crevices may become breeding grounds for smoke particles. And aside from irritating your respiratory system, smoke particles can also create health issues if not removed correctly. However, trust us to handle any fire and smoke damages.

We handle Flood damage.

Damage to your house can be substantial in the event of flooding occurs. They also pose a risk of secondary damage, such as mold, to your property. Your home may be restored to its preloss condition with the help of a SERVPRO restoration and clean-up company.

We guarantee your safety.

Regardless of the type of damage you've suffered due to a natural disaster, the most important thing to remember is to stay safe. Damage to your home could be a ticking time bomb just waiting to explode if you don't have a professional inspect it. And so, our team of restoration experts do all it takes to ensure your safety.

a large yellow warning sign stating that there is stormy weather ahead Severe Storms Have a Costly Impact | SERVPRO® of Rapid City

What can we say about the year 2020? So much happened, but what we want to focus on is the weather—it was a record-setting year for weather and climate disasters. Of all the years in history for which we have data, 2020 was the most financially destructive.

In the year 2020, we saw 22 official weather disasters, which are defined as events that cause at least a billion dollars in damages, plus other damaging storms that are not counted in this particular statistic. There were so many tropical storms and hurricanes in 2020 that the NWS ran out of letter from the alphabet and had to dip into the Greek alphabet to finish naming all of the storms.

Not Only Hurricanes

Yes, hurricanes bring about immense destruction and causes large amounts of monetary damage, but other types of severe weather are starting to play a major role as well. In fact, the most expensive disasters of 2020 in the contiguous United States were thunderstorms and tornadoes.

In 2020, there were 14 official weather disasters that were severe thunderstorms, and some that brought tornadoes as well. Thunderstorms are common, and they don’t discriminate on where or when they will hit. And as of lately, it’s becoming quite normal to see them with the fierceness that we are seeing now.

In August 2020, what seemed like a typical line of thunderstorms in eastern Nebraska exploded into a derecho, which is something like a tornado but with straight winds instead of swirling ones, and it impacted more than 10 million acres of corn fields. This is almost half the state’s corn crops—that’s over 11% of the entire country’s corn fields.

Our summers here in Rapid City prove to be quite active, severe weather-wise! In 2020, we had nine major events happen in a three-month time span. All of which began with severe thunderstorms and progressed to hail storms or tornadoes.

Is This Our New Normal?

In 2020, it was the 10th consecutive year with at least eight billion-dollar disasters. 2018 and 2019 combined saw a total of $136 billion in damages, and 2017 caused a total cost of over $300 billion, which was the highest total on record!

Thunderstorms are normal and common, but the intensity and frequency of these are starting to become regular. So as a home or business owner, it’s imperative to take whatever precautions are possible. in order to minimize the damage to your property.

You can’t control Mother Nature no matter how many precautions you take, but you can guarantee that you have got friends in the restoration industry whose goal is to recover your valued items and restore your property "Like it never even happened."

When storms do damage, we go to work to make things right. Contact SERVPRO today to see how we can help.

SERVPRO Uses The Best Equipment

When we are called to a flooded space, it is essential to be able to rapidly determine the extent of water damage in the home or business.

Getting your home or business dry is imperative in the aftermath of water damage. With excess moisture mold and mildew can develop and bacteria can multiply. That’s why SERVPRO of Rapid City uses moisture meters during and after completion of water remediation work to ensure that structures are properly dried.

Moisture meters can reach areas that may be overlooked or not considered as being affected by moisture. These include areas such as basement walls, spaces between layers of drywall, concrete subfloors, and beneath carpet and tile. Identifying potential damage to these lesser-suspected areas can save thousands of dollars in reconstruction later.

SERVPRO of Rapid City provides 24-hour emergency service and is dedicated to being faster to any-sized disaster. We can respond immediately to your emergency and have the expertise to handle your restoration or cleaning needs.

Prevent Your Cookout From Being Ruined by a Fire | SERVPRO® of Rapid City

We love a summer afternoon spent outdoors followed by a meal cooked on the grill, but with the fun of mastering the grill also comes the responsibility of preventing fires. Because grilling is a common activity, it is not rare to see safety standards become relaxed with time. The best way to prevent a fire is by always being vigilant about fire safety every time you light up the grill.

Many people assume that grill fires are fairly rare, but the U.S. Fire Administration has found that over 5,000 occur annually. These fires can range from small incidents to large emergencies, so we always recommend brushing up on your safety skills before you break out the tongs.

Brushing Up on Grilling Safety Skills

Create a safe zone around your grill. Putting your grill in a spot that is convenient is typically desired, but if the convenient spot is on a wooden deck or close to your home, it can be disastrous. Experts recommend keeping at least three feet around your grill that is clear of flammable objects just in case.

Clean your grill grates often. When you clean your grill grates often, you are not only making your cooking more consistent, but you are also cutting down on your fire risk. As grease builds up on grill grates, it can be heated to hotter and hotter temperatures each time the grill is on, eventually sparking a serious grease fire. Brushing your grates off after each use is a good habit to be in for preventing this.

Never leave the grill unattended. Grills are no exception to the rule that an open flame should never be left unattended. It only takes a moment for that fire to start, and if you are nearby with a fire extinguisher in that moment, you can seriously reduce the damage that is caused. Even for a quick break, ask someone else to take over for you just in case.

Inspect the grill regularly. Even if you are using your grill regularly, there is no telling what sort of dangerous wear and tear could occur. Gas tanks, hoses and connectors can wear down in time, and if you light the grill with a gas leak present, a disaster could quickly ensue. A simple visual inspection every time you grill can seriously cut down on this risk.

If you have a grill fire that does damage to your home, we are here to help. You can call us any time, day or night, to have a quick response from our restoration experts.

DO you have a completed ERP?

Picture of ERP App Download the App today!

We have a program called ERP (Emergency Ready Profile). It’s a profile we put together in case of an emergency in your home or business. It’s good for employees, babysitters, or house sitters. The profile is designed to help people that have an emergency occur in their property. For example, if you have water damage, and you need to shut off your water supply, the profile will show a picture of what the shut off looks like, and a description of where it’s at. It will also have contact information in case the homeowner or building manager is not available.

WHY SERVPRO? We offer this FREE profile to anyone. All we need is just a little of your time, and we can make you better prepared for any type of emergency or disaster.

Increase Your Preparedness Before Severe Weather Strikes | SERVPRO® of Rapid City

5/21/2020 (Permalink)

person on a white tablet using weather alert app If your home has been impacted by storm damage, SERVPRO of Rapid City will respond quickly to assist in any repairs.

When a thunderstorm is in the area, it is difficult to determine how much damage will be done. Storms can be unpredictable in their patterns, causing severe damage in one area and no damage in another. For this reason, it is important to always be prepared when storms are in the forecast, as you never know what the outcome will be.

By being aware of weather notice terms, making sure your household is ready and having reliable access to weather updates, you can be as prepared as possible for a severe storm to come through the area.

Be Aware of Weather Notice Terms

The notices issued by local weather officials are a helpful way to receive pertinent information regarding your threat level and the next steps to take toward safety. The issuance of a severe weather watch means to stand by and stay informed—conditions point to severe weather occurring, but it has not yet begun. When a severe weather warning is issued, that means that severe weather is active in the area and you should take the appropriate actions to get to safety and stay in place.

Make Sure Your Household Is Ready

While you may not think of an emergency kit as something you use during storms, it is actually a great thing to have on hand. Electricity will often go out, making non-perishable food, filtered water, flashlights and batteries must-haves. It is also wise to make sure you have simple medical supplies handy. You should also designate a safe spot to hunker down while the storm is in your area, such as a bathroom or ground floor hallway, to protect your family from the elements.

Have Reliable Access to Weather Updates

Though our cell phones have revolutionized the way we receive news and important updates about the world, they are not as useful in the event of severe weather. Because cell reception can be faulty during severe weather and electrical outages can render phones without a full charge useless, it is best to have another way to access weather updates. A NOAA Weather Radio is a smart solution for this that you can keep in your disaster kit at all times.

If your home has been impacted by storm damage, we are here for you. You can contact us 247 to get a quick response to your home’s damages.
