Homes and business throughout the area were damaged or destroyed and many lives were forever changed. Did you know that flooding is the #1 cause for insurance claims? Surprisingly, most homeowners or business owners don't have flood coverage and unfortunately don't find this out until it is too late. Take the time to review your insurance policy and meet with your insurance agent to add additional coverage if needed.

Do you find that when you are doing laundry it's taking forever to dry your clothes? Does your Furnace sound like a freight train? More than likely this is because your air or exhaust ducts are in need of an extensive cleaning and the filters changed out. When the dust builds up in your air ducts and exhaust system it causes your dryer and HVAC system to work overtime and shorten the life of these expensive items. Not only is this bad for your appliances and mechanical system, it's also a fire hazard. Be sure to clean out your air ducts and vents at least once a year in order to keep the airflow in your house clean and safe. Call SERVPRO of Carbon & NW Monroe counties to schedule an appointment today.
