How often do you get your carpet cleaned?
Why should you get your carpet cleaned? Getting your carpet cleaned regularly helps remove dust, bacteria, deep-seated dirt, grime and other allergens. Getting your carpet cleaned also helps to extend the lifespan of your current carpet. Your next question may be, “well how often should I get my carpet cleaned?” The frequency of carpet cleaning depends on several factors. Carpets in homes without children, pets or smokers should be cleaned every 6-12 months. Carpets in homes with children, pets or where smoking is occurring need to be cleaned more often; every 3-6 months. SERVPRO has multiple methods for cleaning this surface therefore an evaluation takes place to determine the proper approach. Pre-treatment and spot removal typically are the first move, just to give an extra hand to those high traffic and heavily soiled areas. Following this step, there will be a method chosen for your specific fibers and type of soil in your carpet. Lastly, it is recommended that you do not walk on your carpet until it is dry, if possible. If you are in need of carpet cleaning give SERVPRO of Dothan a call today!
Never too early to prepare for a fire!
Although “Burn Week Awareness” is in February, it is never too early to start learning how to prepare. Last year's theme was Burning Issues in the Kitchen and as for 2023, the theme is Hot Liquids Burn Like Fire! According to the American Burn Association, 47% of all home fires are caused by cooking. When it comes to preventing fires in your kitchen, there are a few steps to take into account before you start cooking.
- Always clean the stove/oven to prevent grease buildup.
- When heating food in the microwave, make sure to use microwave-safe cookware that allows steam to escape. Allow food to rest before removing it from the microwave.
- Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. If you leave, turn off the stove.
- After cooking, check the kitchen to make sure all burners and other appliances are turned off.
- Use a timer to remind you to check on your cooking.

Why does your fire alarm go off randomly?
There are many reasons as to why your fire alarm may be going off randomly. One of the most common and main reasons is because of low or faulty batteries. Some will let out a little chirp while others fully alarm. The alarm could have too much dust inside or it could even be broken. There are other causes that you probably wouldn’t consider initially such as, smoke from outside seeping into your home or even high humidity can set it off. Everyday candles can set off an alarm, too. Be sure to always treat every alarm as an emergency situation just in case it is serious. It is also recommended to change the batteries every 6-12 months to ensure it is always at its full capacity. SERVPRO specializes in fire damage restoration so in a case of emergency we are always here to help get you back to normal.

Do I have mold?
There are over 100,000 kinds of fungi that have been identified. In useful cases it can be used for breads, baked goods and other food products. Life saving Penicillin is even a product of mold. Although some forms add value, others can be harmful to us. Water intrusion into a building can result in mold growth. Especially if it is not treated right away, it can become harmful mold. When moisture is present, it is important to be on the lookout for strong musty odors, presences of visible mold and excessive humidity. Indoor air quality/environmental professionals use various testing devices to identify mold spore counts and what kind of mold is present. It is crucial that you contact a professional if you expect mold is present. SERVPRO is trained in mold remediation and will examine any structure.
