SERVPRO night at the Grasshoppers game!
SERVPRO employees at the ballpark!
SERVPRO of Greensboro North, Burlington, and Kernersville had a great time hosting several local insurance agents and their families at the Greensboro Grasshoppers game! With storms all around, we lucked out and the game went on without a hitch! The game went into the 11th inning, with the Grasshoppers beating the Hickory Crawdads, 8 runs to 5 runs.
We at SERVPRO of Greensboro North, Burlington and Kernersville are so fortunate to have such a great group of local agents that we work with. This game was a great opportunity for us to get to know some of our agents on a more personal level, get to meet each others families, and get to watch a great game, eat some fantastic ballpark food, have a cold beverage, and cheer our local team onto victory! We even had a visit from the mascot!
We look forward to many more fun events in the future!!

SERVPRO employees volunteer time at local shelter
Korey and Herbert volunteer time
Here at SERVPRO we love to give back to our community, and such was the case recently when our technicians Korey and Herbert volunteered their time cleaning a local domestic violence shelter. The brand new kitchen, donated by a local contractor, and the deep cleaning that our guys did definitely put a smile on the residents faces.
If you or someone you know needs to find a domestic violence shelter, there are over 105 domestic violence organizations in North Carolina that provide services at some level. domesticshelters.org is a great resource in locating one if you are in need.
We hope that in giving our time to help clean this newly renovated space, we can help give those affected a safe space where they can be out of the former situations that they were in and move on towards a brighter future.
Preparing your home and business for Winter Weather
The weather man is calling for some winter weather this week in the triad so here our a few of our tips for how to keep your home and business disaster free.
• Keep cabinets in your kitchen and bathroom open to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing.
• Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets, especially if the pipes for faucets run through unheated or uninsulated areas of your home.
• Consider installing specific products to insulate water pipes, such as “pipe sleeves” or just use a dark colored sock for outside spigots.
• Consider shutting off outdoor faucets. Find the shut-off valve in the basement or crawl space and turn it to “off”. Then make sure the outdoor faucet is open to help it drain completely while the inner valve is shut off.
• Ensure gutters are clean and secure. Allowing debris to accumulate could cause damming effects on gutters, leading to roof and water damage.
• If you are traveling, leave your furnace set to a temperature no lower than 55° F.
•Inspect property and pay specific attention to downed tree limbs and branches. Walkways and parking lots should be inspected for proper drainage. potential slippery or hazardous areas corrected with mats or non-slip surfaces.
•Preform or have a professional preform proper maintenance on your furnace.
•Contact SERVPRO about having an Emergency Ready Plan done for your business to ensure you are ready for any type of disaster.
•Contact SERVPRO of Greensboro North, Burlington and Kernersville at (336) 379-1772 for help when winter weather strikes.
SERVPRO of Greensboro North on HGTV's Love it or List it
Our fearless leader, Britt Holcomb on prime time TV!
This summer our Greensboro SERVPRO family was fortunate enough to be part of the filming of an episode of HGTV’s Love it or List it. Our SERVPRO debut on the TV screen aired this past Monday, September 21st to kick off the fall season. It was an exciting opportunity for our team to be part of this popular TV show and help out the homeowners.
On this episode of Love it or List it, we met a local couple who was having a hard time deciding whether to renovate their home to be more suited for their family of four or to list it and buy something different. So they decide to do both: renovate their house to deal with some of the pesky inconveniences and look at other houses that might meet their needs. At the end of the show they make the ultimate decision to either stick with their newly renovated home (Love it) or put it on the market and buy one of the homes they have seen (List it).
As is common with home renovations, our couple found that the water damage they thought they had taken care of in their basement on their own was returning to haunt them. SERVPRO of Greensboro North to the rescue!
Basements can be a conundrum of dampness and moisture. Did you know that even if a surface feels dry to the touch, it may still be retaining water and thus transforming into mold later on? We have the equipment needed to makes sure water-damaged surfaces are truly dry and treated to eliminate the risk of mold spore growth.
Just like we would in your home, we made sure our TV couple’s leaky basement was dry, sealed and like the water damage “never even happened”. After our team, and some other talented contractors and designers were done with this couple’s home, they decided they loved it too much to let it go. We are sure that their newly dry and transformed basement must have played a part in making this difficult decision.
Even if you aren’t the star of an HGTV show, we can be your go-to for dealing with those idiosyncrasies of home or business ownership and our ever-changing North Carolina weather. Whether it is water, smoke, wind, fire or mold damage we are your clean up and drying specialists. Do you want the air filtering through your ducts to be as crisp and clear as these fall days? We can clean your ducts and make that a reality in the air circulating through your system. And we are ready and equipped for anything Mother Nature may throw at us this fall and winter. So make us your go to for your home or business needs and we will make sure that you love the results when we are done!

A “Flash Flood Watch,” means there is possible flooding in the Greensboro area. A “Flash Flood Warning,” means flooding is already occurring or will occur soon in the Greensboro area.
