Signs of Water Heater Damage in Mount Clemens?

5/4/2022 (Permalink)

A corroded water heater is shown. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Macomb County.

Water heaters are a leading cause of water damage. Our Mount Clemens and New Baltimore team offer these professional maintenance tips for your water heater from the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors:

Use a qualified service professional for:

  • Burners should be cleaned once a year for gas and oil-fired water heaters. Have the service professional inspect flues and vents for cracks or loose connections that could leak deadly exhaust gases.
     
  • Have a qualified plumber replace your anode rod once every two to five years
     
  • The service life of a temperature and pressure (T & P) valve is usually three years. Even if a T & P valve looks fine from the outside, manufacturers recommend they be removed and visually inspected for accumulations of corrosion deposits
  • If your water tank is leaking, call a professional
    • If the T & P valve is discharging water or steam, the ONLY safe intervention is to remove the heat source by cutting off its fuel. For an electric heater, trip the circuit breaker; for a gas heater, shut off the gas.
    • If your water heater overheats, call a qualified plumber and allow the water heater to cool naturally. Never try to relieve the pressure yourself. Never add cool water to the tank, and never try to cool it by spraying it with a hose.

Water Intrusion Causes Mold Outbreak in New Baltimore Business?

4/19/2022 (Permalink)

Mold is growing on a wall. We restore commercial mold damage 24-hours a day in Macomb County.

Our Mount Clemens and New Baltimore team are trusted leaders in commercial mold remediation. Water intrusion is a known cause of mold problems in New Baltimore. Commercial buildings and homes with water leaks create the perfect conditions for mold to flourish. Microscopic mold spores float around in the Earth’s atmosphere, waiting for the ideal moist conditions. Once these conditions are present, mold can become visible in as little as 48 to 72 hours and can rapidly spread to other areas of the structure.

Mold Inspection Process

We follow local and state laws and will advise you on the process, providing guidance and recommendations based on your unique situation.

Cleaning Contents and Belongings

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, and other restorable items affected by mold. We’re also trained to remove odors and deodorization using fogging equipment.

Restoration

Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet, or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a business or home.

Call Us!

If you have a leak or have had recent water damage, you may have a mold problem. When you smell a musty odor or find mold growing in your New Baltimore commercial business or home, our local team in Mount Clemens and New Baltimore is Here to Help. ® Call us today at 586-598-5050.

An F3 tornado sets down in a field. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Macomb County.

Our team in Mount Clemens and New Baltimore wants everyone to know how to prepare for a tornado. Here is some information from Michigan's Emergency Management Division:

  • Review with your family the area in the home that is designated as the shelter, and practice having everyone in the family go there
  • Have a disaster supplies kit on hand.
    • Flashlight
    • Extra Batteries
    • Battery Operated Radio
    • First Aid Kit
    • Can Opener
    • Canned Food
    • Bottled Water
    • Extra Clothes

Develop an emergency communication plan in case family members are separated from one another during a tornado.

Here are two of the most notable disasters to strike Macomb county in Michigan's history:

May 25, 1896

A cluster of five tornadoes north of Detroit killed 50 people on May 25, 1896, making it the second-deadliest tornado outbreak in Michigan history.

1964 Macomb County tornado

Thirteen people were killed, and 400 were injured on May 8, 1964, by a tornado that went through Chesterfield Township between Mount Clemens and New Baltimore in Macomb County.

Thousands were left homeless by the F5 storm, which caused $7 to $8 million in property damage -- equivalent to $55 to $63 million in today's dollars.
