How a Storm Can Cause Pittsboro's Sewer System to Overflow
Flood waters contain contaminants and bacteria. Avoid contact with flood water.
Plumbing systems in this community date all the way back to the 1950s. In the advent of heavy rainfall, these systems can back-up causing road overflows with water that contains raw sewage or other pathogens. Unfortunately, these events can cause damage to your property, posing significant risks to your health and well-being. Professional mitigation is the only way to be sure of bringing your property back to preloss conditions.
The difficulty with flood damage in Pittsboro properties is down to the pathogens that the water picks up en route. These can range from animal carcasses to raw sewage or even herbicides and pesticides in rural areas. We commonly refer to this type of contamination as Black Water. SERVPRO has developed specific procedures to help our community remove Black Water entirely and make it "Like it never even happened."
Our first advice to all homeowners is to avoid all contact with flood water. SERVPRO technicians are IICRC certificate holders and have extensive training in how to safely remediate Black Water. It is imperative that you trust us by allowing us to take care of your possessions and property.
Our fully submersible gas-powered pumps and truck mounted water extraction units can remove standing water fast. Once the removal of excess water is complete, we are ready to begin restoring your home. SERVPRO work with a restore over replace mentality although we may need to remove and dispose of drywall that comes into contact with contaminated water. Doing so is the only way to ensure your health and safety.
Restoring your possessions may require advanced, and expensive equipment. Calling SERVPRO, a company with access to national resources, could help you to restore heavily soiled fabrics. We own external cleaning facilities that house industrial Esporta washing machines as well as Ultrasonic cleaning equipment. We can restore many of your possessions to preloss conditions by utilizing a pack-out procedure and sending items to these facilities.
Black Water can cause widespread damage and needs professional remediation. Contact SERVPRO of Lee & South Chatham Counties at (919) 533-6776 now.

Ultimate Solution for a Pittsboro Home Mold Infestation
A mold infestation can flare up quickly and spread like wildfire. Contact SERVPRO to investigate and remediate the damage.
Does Mold Harm Your Pittsboro Home?
Many Pittsboro homeowners are misinformed about the risks of allowing certain conditions to persist within a property. Situations like microbial growth can threaten the structural integrity of your home’s construction materials and pose potential risks to the health of the property’s occupants. Moreover, many of these same misinformed homeowners believe that the situation is not threatening or that it goes away on its own if allowed to run its course. Unfortunately, none of these are true.
The reason that many homeowners become misinformed about the threats of fungal growth is that few understand the work that mold remediation technicians in Pittsboro do and the destructive force that mold colonies become. Our SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians undergo significant training to obtain their IICRC-certifications to be leading specialists in mold removal, remediation, and damage restoration. We offer effective solutions for homes threatened by mold growth, and this begins with our commitment to respond quickly to the problem.
With the speed in which mold colonies can spread and thrive, having a team of professionals available at a moment’s notice is critical to preserving affected elements of your home from the destructive nature of this spreading organism. As the colony moves through the affected area, it erodes and degrades materials like drywall. Our 24-hour response to these situations allows our SERVPRO technicians to set up advanced equipment like our air scrubbers or negative air chambers to significantly slow or stop the spread of active mold spores throughout the property so that removal efforts can be effective.
A reason that our franchise is a wise choice for these circumstances is our advanced equipment designed to make the entire remediation process more efficient. Our commitment to our customers is to limit the impact we have on their life, and that begins with machines and tools that can get the job done quickly.
Understanding that mold is a serious occurrence within your home can help you to see the benefits of professionals who are continually trained to be the top remediation specialists available. Give our SERVPRO of Lee & South Chatham Counties rapid response team a call today at (919) 533-6776.

SERVPRO Provides Expertise Fire Loss Recovery to Pittsboro Property Owners
SERVPRO Advice: Pittsboro Cooks--Be Observant to Prevent Kitchen Mishaps and Fires
Recovering Your Pittsboro Kitchen After A Fire
Disasters that occur within your Pittsboro home’s kitchen offer some challenging hurdles to overcome for a homeowner. From the soot and smoke damage that can permeate the air, the construction elements, and the contents of the room to structural concerns from intense exposure, there are many effects from the incident that must get addressed to return a property to preloss condition.
Returning to your home once fire extinguishment has completed gives you the first look at the fire damage to your Pittsboro property and the lengths necessary to recover it. From this point, you might consider calling your insurance company. Moreover, then contact our SERVPRO response team. We have highly-trained technicians with the knowledge to assess the integrity of the structure, photograph the incident, catalog the damages and record losses. This documentation is a requirement of your insurance provider to approve a damage claim on the property, so this speeds that process along. You will rarely find that the cost to restore the incident is not worth filing a claim over. Our estimator or project manager can interface with you and your insurance adjuster to expedite the recovery and remain within a given budget.
Our SERVPRO professionals set out to take care of the structural concerns right away, which often have affected the cabinetry, flooring, ceiling, and walls of the room. We can use controlled demolition techniques to prepare the room for rebuilding to follow, removing only the damaged portions to limit the amount of time reconstruction takes.
Removing the smoke and soot damages often means contending with residue matted to surfaces and contents throughout the affected area. Premier cleaning solutions with advanced equipment and industrial-grade solvents help to break this buildup loose and prevent staining of surfaces otherwise unaffected by the fire.
Cleaning the atmosphere also helps to make the restoration process more efficient and safer for our technicians on-site. We can utilize equipment such as hydroxyl generators and air scrubbers to clean the environment of particulates, debris, smoke damage, mold spores, and other potential threats.
Fire damage is something that homeowners should not face on their own. With our SERVPRO of Lee & South Chatham Counties experienced fire restoration technicians, we can get you back into your house quickly. Give us a call anytime at (919) 533-6776.

Pittsboro Properties Can Benefit from SERVPRO's Rapid Water Removal Efforts
SERVPRO Says to Pittsboro Homeowners--Make Sure You Have a Shut-Off Valve to Mitigate Water Damage
Lacking a Shut-Off Valve Can Cause Severe Water Damage in Pittsboro Homes
Older Pittsboro homes may not always have the modern conveniences in areas like plumbing and construction to help keep them protected in case something goes wrong. For example, many older homes got constructed without the installation of a shut off valve inside of the house to prevent flow from the main water line outside through the water meter and into the plumbing network. Should something occur that ruptures or damages any portion of this plumbing line, you then have to wait until workers can arrive to shut off the flow through the meter itself to prevent more water from spilling into your house.
While it might be simple to suggest that you should have a shut-off valve installed in your Pittsboro home to help prevent water loss, many homeowners do not realize this fact until disaster strikes. With no time to react to the situation, the best solution is to contact our SERVPRO rapid response team to get our Green Fleet rolling out to your address. We have the advanced equipment to help dry up the damage and to make minor repairs to the plumbing network as well, which can help to preserve construction elements within your home from requiring replacement.
The faster that our IICRC certified technicians can arrive at an emergency like this, the easier it becomes to mitigate the damage that has occurred within the structure. Regardless of the severity of the problem, waiting too long for water removal and restoration work can allow for secondary effects like mold growth to begin. This situation of intrusive water requires industry-leading equipment and techniques to reduce the damages. We strive always to restore and not replace whenever possible.
We have truck-mounted pumps in our SERVPRO Green Fleet to rapidly extract water from affected areas of your home. We can combine the efforts of our air movers that force moisture into the air and our dehumidifiers which pull that vapor out of the environment, for fast drying efforts to protect your home.
Our SERVPRO of Lee & South Chatham Counties rapid response team is available 24/7 for any emergency that your home faces. We have the advanced equipment and highly-trained technicians to make a difference quickly. Give us a call anytime at (919) 533-6776.
