Staff explained each and every step of the process in a way that made me feel more confident that the job was going to be completed in a way that would meet my family's needs.

Fire damage and how SERVPRO can help
What would you do if you came home after a stressful day at work, and your house is on fire? Or you were about lock up for the night and you smell something burning and the business is in flames in the back room? Well, you’re going to call the fire department first but who is going to take care of all the damage and soot on the inside? SERVPRO of Breckinridge, Grayson, Meade, and Hancock Counties will take care of all your worries. We’re trained with all proper licenses to be able to handle fire damage cleanup.
To be able to give you the best result we can, it’s best that we start as soon as we have approval from adjuster. We have a “pack away” with customers permission, we pack up personal items, we clean items and return them at the end. We have non-salvageable sheets and we bag up what we think is not savable and with your permission, we trash them. After everything has been removed from the house, we clean the ceiling with a sponge and that removes soot off ceiling. Then, we use a two-step method of cleaning the walls. We go through the affected walls and two people work together as a team, one will go through the wall with the first chemical and then the second person will wipe with another chemical. We also, clean the HVAC units in your home to make sure all the soot, smoke, and any other debris that could be in the system gets cleaned out. We clean all the furniture that was in the house and remove soot. Once we are finished inside the house, we clean all floors if they didn’t get removed from damage. We will also provide one more specialized service at the end of cleaning process to get rid of any other smell that didn’t get completely out during the cleaning process. If you have a fire in your home or business, let the professionals help you! SERVPRO of Breckinridge, Grayson, Meade, and Hancock Counties. Contact us at 270-580-2200

Space Heater Safety
SERVPRO Warns About the Dangers of Space Heaters When Not Used Properly
Fire does not care what season it is or whether or not it’s cold outside. Winter related fires are extremely common, especially when you are trying hard to keep warm.
Our offices in Westview, KY have experience in fire damage from space heaters and can provide you with some tips to help avoid having to deal with these types of destructive events this winter season.
SERVPRO of Breckinridge, Grayson, Meade, and Hancock Counties technicians understand that accidents happen. Placing space heaters too close to other objects or using the wrong type of heater in a particular area can cause severe problems. Please take a moment to consider some factors leading to these fires.
Oil Heaters - Should be used in areas where there is the possibility of moisture. This eliminates any electrical hazards that may be present due to water conductivity. Always keep a safe distance to avoid contact burns.
Electric Heaters - These heaters come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be useful for many areas in your home. However, they should never be left unattended. Thinking of electric heaters as giant toasters can help you understand how important it is to keep a constant eye on them. Make sure you have sufficient wattage to run the device and never use extension cords.
Our SERVPRO of Breckinridge, Grayson, Meade, and Hancock Counties staff gets an incredible amount of space heater-related calls every winter. People are trying to stay warm and use space heaters quite often for this purpose. However, using a space heater does not need to cause so many problems during a cold spell. Just use common sense, and always follow the directions of the manufacturer.
The professional technicians at SERVPRO of Breckinridge, Grayson, Meade, and Hancock Counties state that you follow a few simple guidelines when operating your space heaters.
1) Always place space heaters on a flat, solid surface for proper stabilization.
2) Purchase heaters with an automatic shut-off feature to prevent dangers from tipping.
3) Maintain proper spacing between heaters and other objects in your home.
4) Never leave children or pets unsupervised around operating heaters.
5) Shut your heaters off properly before leaving your home or going to sleep.
Following these guidelines does not ensure that you will never have to deal with fire damage from space heaters. However, you are less likely to have an unwanted consequence. If this sort of incident still strikes your home this winter season, make the call to our offices immediately. We will respond quickly and provide you with the services you need to get back to normal fast.

Winter is coming. Are you prepared?
Flooded basement in Vine Grove Kentucky
We are at that time of year again. This is when cold weather starts to show up and freezing temperatures threaten our area. This can cause a headache if you are not prepared. You need to take the time to help prevent damage from happening at your home or commercial building.
Frozen pipes can cause extensive damage, but this can be prevented.
There are many ways to help prevent damage from a frozen pipe. Here are a couple.
- Opening cabinet doors will allow warm air to get under sinks and help keep pipes from freezing (especially where pipes are on exterior walls).
- Adding outdoor faucet covers to protect your exterior faucets. You can pick these up at any of your local hardware stores.
When these things don't work... Call SERVPRO of Breckinridge, Grayson, Meade & Hancock Counties to help with the cleanup. We'll make it "Like it never even happened."

Coffee can help with odors
Got smells? Did you know that the makings of your daily cup of joe can help you get rid of minor odors that keep your home, apartment or business from being nose-friendly?
Coffee grounds or ground up coffee, before it becomes drinkable, can help you with deodorization of a number of different smells. For example, if someone left something in the refrigerator and then forgot about it for a month, a nasty smell might be the result. Simply grind up some coffee and leave several bowls in the fridge. The odor will be absorbed within a few hours or a day. (Do not use these grounds for making your next cup of coffee, however!) Refrigerator smells are a common problem in offices and the workplace, where busy minds might go out to lunch and forget they brought a lunch that morning. Grounds can also be left in the freezer overnight, after a freezer failure, to absorb the food smells.
Coffee grounds can also be rubbed on your hands to eliminate the smell of onions and garlic after a session of cutting during dinner preparation. Cooks will find this tip very helpful on a daily basis.
The grounds from coffee might even help neutralize the smell of dead animals as well as pet urine smells. Some people have put a dish of coffee grounds in the bathroom to help with deodorization.
You might want to keep a bag of the grounds in your cooler when camping or going to a big game. Sports enthusiasts can fill a sock with grounds and leave it in the cooler.
Another odor that coffee grounds can help with is that from ashes in a fireplace. They help neutralize the burnt smell as well as make cleanup of the ashes easier.
If using coffee grounds doesn't do the trick, you might want to call SERVPRO of Breckinridge, Grayson, Meade & Hancock Counties. We can help you with deodorization and have cleaning services as well as mold remediation. Give SERVPRO of Breckinridge, Grayson, Meade & Hancock Counties a call to help assess the problem and offer a solution.
