Due to low table waters that rose quickly because of wet weather, many homeowners were surprised when their basement was flooded with water one moment and in the next the sump pump was working again and removing the water.

Mold isn’t always visible!

Mold isn’t always visible!

Most people become frantic of mold in their homes when it starts to show up on organic materials but that is not always the case! Sometimes homeowners are faced with water intrusions behind walls that they aren’t even aware of and it only takes 24-48 hours for mold to spore.

Sometimes you can smell mold and knowing the property’s history can help pinpoint how much damage you might be facing. Before trying to remediate the mold, it is important to fix the source of the moisture since that is what promotes mold growth.

Networking Event

Networking Event

At SERVPRO we’re busy as ever in our local community.

On March 8th we attended the monthly Woburn Business Association function. It was hosted by Jake n JOES, a fairly new establishment in Woburn. They are doing very well and have gained a following already. This Wednesday evening event felt more like a Friday or Saturday. It’s a fun and casual atmosphere with quality food and drink.

As always, the event was a place to meet and share with local businesses. It pays to keep our business in and around the Woburn area. We support each other in our business and personal goals, and most importantly, stimulate our local economy. There are always ways to give back here too. Members of the Woburn and Burlington Rotary were in attendance as usual. The Rotary is a fine organization to check out if you’re looking for opportunities to serve.

On March 7’th we attended a Multi-Chamber of Commerce function at the Crowne Plaza in Woburn. The Crowne Plaza did a wonderful job as usual. Their hotel, restaurant and function rooms never disappoint. Several hundred Businesses and Non-profits were in attendance.  An event like this is great to meet local business owners and residents, but what makes the Chamber of Commerce events so helpful to our community is the participation of charitable organizations and Non-profits in our community.

We all have a chance to give back. In our area there are fund raisers, golf outings and opportunities to give of our time. There are walks for cancer, food drives and Rotary events. There are so many ways to serve and give back, and the Chamber of Commerce is a great place to learn how.

At SERVPRO we love to help. How can we help you?
