Mother Nature and Freak Accidents Part 1

Storm Damage Mother Nature and Freak Accidents Part 1 Storm damage often hits us days later when the pipes burst.

Mother nature and freak accidents are two things that are out of our control, nonetheless both can wreak havoc on our floors and the carpet under our feet. Speed and efficiency are the only option to save anything you’re  standing on.

Carpets and rugs that have possibly been contaminated by sewage or have been underwater for more than 24 hours is NOT salvageable. Disposal of area rugs and carpets properly can be a large undertaking. Carpet pad that has been saturated most often cannot be dried quickly enough to avoid the growth of harmful bacteria and mold, it should be removed and replaced as soon as possible to prevent permanent damage to the floor and sub-floor.

Taking care of flooding and moisture in your carpets and floors is a daunting task and is needs to happen swiftly. Call SERVPRO of Marshfield/Rockland as soon as possible to prevent costly and permanent damage.

Storm Damage Windows and Hurricane Winds You can expect an immediate response time, day or night.

Storm season is always around the corner when you live in New England, we’re never really out of the woods around here. Essential preparation and knowing your evacuation route will help you rest easier when storm warnings happen and damaging winds are imminent.


The windows in your home are especially vulnerable to hurricane wind damage. A breached window during a storm can quickly cause thousands of dollars in flood damage, and pose serious safety risks for you and your loved ones. Make sure your; outdoor furniture and garden ornaments are secure or tied down, loose shutters and broken screens should be repaired and I guarantee nobody wants an umbrella missile flying toward them ~ put it in the shed.


Call us and we will help you to prepare and protect your home properly.

Doors and Hurricane Winds

Storm Damage Doors and Hurricane Winds Flood gates opened and in comes the storm and mud.

You’ve walked through it a thousand times, half the time you don’t even look up as you toss your keys on the table and sort through the mail.


The front door, or any door for that matter, is considered vulnerable to damage in hurricane strength winds. We’re no strangers to strong winds and damage in Massachusetts, and hurricane strength winds happen around here ~ any time of year.


Keep your home and family safe from damage and injury by taking care of your property before the storm hits. A tricycle or even a small rock seem much bigger when they are being propelled by winds in excess of 155 mph at your sliding glass doors! Be sure your screen doors are closed and secure, a loose screen door will at the very least slap and bang against the house causing damage or worse damage your neighbors house if it goes flying. Don’t be that neighbor. Ensure your comfort and safety by preparing for the unknown and taking care of your home the best you can, now ~ while the winds are still calm.
