Is Mold Growing In Your Home?

7/15/2024 (Permalink)

The latest heat wave has been a rough one. On top of that we have had a few days of heavy rain and overall mugginess. Escaping indoors to an airconditioned home or business can feel like heaven. But, maybe you've started to notice a certain smell. A certain earthy, musty, not fresh smell.

Maybe you smell the smelly smell of something that smells smelly? If you know what I'm talking about, you may have a mold problem in your home or business. Heat and moisture can create the perfect atmosphere for mold growth. 

Mold is not only bad for your health, it can be damaging to structures as well. Make the safe choice and don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of Adamstown, Mohnton if you suspect mold (717)484-0007. We specialize in thorough cleaning services that can have your space smelling fresh again.

Don't Let Your Fourth of July Celebration Cause Fire Damage!

7/4/2024 (Permalink)

It's the fourth of July and that means there will be a surge in fires and fire damage. Between the heat waves, random bouts of dry weather, and the holiday fireworks and firepits, fires become a big concern.

This year make sure you stay safe and vigilant if you are grilling outdoors or lighting some of those fun little bottle rockets and sparklers that the kiddos love. It's always best to have a source of water ready to put out fires that may spark to life. 

One thing I always do is have a pitcher of water ready for used sparklers and fire crackers. It's best to collect them after use and submerge them in the water until they are fully soaked through, thus avoiding anything from catching fire.

As always if you find yourself dealing with a fire damage give us a call at (717) 484-0007!

Fire Damage? SERVPRO Is On The Way!

Fires can happen at any time and SERVPRO® is always ready when the calls come in. 

Recently our business development manager was at a networking event for SERVPRO when a fire damage call came in. She was offered the opportunity to ride along and see how everything is handled from the start. 

On top of sorting through the mess to see what could be saved and what plans needed to be made she got to witness how SERVPRO technicians handle the customers after a fire catastrophe. It warmed her heart to see how comforting and professional the techs were and how quickly they got to work cleaning the mess. 

By the time she left the scene, plans were already made and in motion to make it "Like it never even happened."

Watch Out For That Summer Heat!

The weather has finally gotten warmer, somedays it's a little too warm. If your AC can't beat the heat give SERVPRO of Adamstown, Mohnton a call so we can clean it up and get it back into tip top shape!

Once your AC is fixed you can get back to enjoying more fun things like maybe a round of golf! The SERVPRO crew just enjoyed our own games of golf at the Foxchase Golf Club with Real Life Community Services. We got to have a blast and do it for a good cause!

Whether you're enjoying a little putt putt in the yard or maybe just barbequing out back be sure to look out for brush fires that can start and grow rapidly. With the weather drying up grass can catch fire and spread quickly to your home. 

Make sure you have immediate access to water or a hose if your going to have any open flames in your yard, but if the worst happens you can give SERVPRO of Adamstown, Mohnton a call 24/7 365 at (717)484-0007.

What Memorial Day Really Means

5/28/2024 (Permalink)

Many people see Memorial Day as a fun extension of the weekend. A day to relax and have cook outs, to enjoy the nice weather and maybe spend the day at the pool or beach. And even though we do all that, the truth is we wouldn't be able to enjoy any of it were it not for the fearless soldiers that have sacrificed everything for this great country. 

This Memorial Day please take the time to think about the reasons why we celebrate. Remember the courageous souls who gave all so we can keep our freedom.

For those of us at SERVPRO of Adamstown, Mohnton their sacrifices will never be forgotten. We are only the home of the free because of the brave.

Saturday evening our business development manager, Jordan and our digital marketing rep. Vicky enjoyed a community event for a good cause. The Patriotic Stitchers for Veterans hosted a live basket auction fundraiser for veterans. 

Along with the baskets for the auction there were items up for raffles on the side and a fun 50/50 raffle as well. A hand-made book case and some Amish made cabinets were donated to the auction too.

Local businesses including SERVPRO of Adamstown, Mohnton donated baskets to be auctioned and all of the proceeds are going to buying yarn and quilting materials for future blankets. The blankets are given to our Veterans in hospices in Lancaster, York, Harrisburg, Lebanon, and Coatesville VA hospitals.

The SERVPRO team knows there are many ways to help our communities outside of fire and water damage restoration. If you have an interest in donating or helping the Patriotic Stitchers for Veterans you can reach them at or give them a search on facebook!

Most of the time SERVPRO crew members interact with people after they have suffered a water or fire damage, or need some sort of cleaning and repair. But, those of us at SERVPRO love having opportunities to connect with members of the community on brighter days. One of the ways we like to connect and interact with people is through being part of events in the community. 

We love being able to give back whether it's having a table and handing out SWAG bags at local golf events, donating to community programs like REAL Life Community Services, or volunteering on projects to better the community like the Denver-Ephrata Area Rotary Gun Club's Route 272 clean up this past weekend.

If you enjoy community events, don't forget to seek us out at upcoming ones like Adamstown Community Days and the Denver Fair! Also, coming up on April 27th is the Patriotic Stitchers for Veterans live basket auction starting at 4pm. All proceeds go to buying yarn and quilting materials to make lovely blankets for veterans in hospice. It is being held at the Ephrata American Legion. Don't miss out, we will see you there!

Earthquake in New Jersey felt as far as Lancaster, PA

4/6/2024 (Permalink)

On Friday at 10:23 in the morning an earthquake with the magnitude of 4.8 rocked much of the east coast. The epicenter was in Hunterdon County, New Jersey but the tremors and effects could be felt in Pennsylvania. Even people as far over as Lancaster County and Reading felt the shaking and heard the loud noise. 

Earthquakes aren't just scary to be a part of, they are dangerous and cause a lot of damage in an instant. Thankfully there has been no major damage reported from Friday's quake.

If you felt your home shaking and have noticed some cracks or foundation damage sprouting up from this event please don't hesitate to give SERVPRO of Adamstown, Mohnton a call at (717) 484-0007 to come out and asses the situation for you.

Watch Out For Those April Showers!

3/28/2024 (Permalink)

April showers can bring a lot more than just flowers, for many it can bring flood and water issues. Before the rainy season comes, here are a few tips you can follow to keep your house or business dry.

First, make sure your gutters are clear from leaves and debris that may have gotten stuck during the fall and winter seasons. Then make sure your down spouts are clear as well.

Sometimes downspouts can have unseen blockages that keep your gutters from doing their job, so make sure those are in good condition. Make sure the water exiting your down spouts will lead away from your house. 

Another thing to keep an eye on is the ground around your house. Keep the ground sloping down away from your house. If you notice the ground is sloping in toward your house water can puddle there and cause foundation leaks.

SERVPRO of Adamstown, Mohnton is available 24/7 for any of your water damage issues, but we hope following these tips will keep you warm and dry.
