Carpet Cleaning Hacks

Garbage Disposal Odor Cleaning Hacks

  • If your garbage disposal is giving off an odorous smell, simply place an orange or lemon down the drain. And, voila, it’s like the smell never even happened.
  • To get rid of a smelly stench, sprinkle about a half-cup of baking soda into the disposal, followed by a cup of white or apple cider vinegar. Let the mixture bubble up and sit for 5-10 minutes. Then, turn on the disposal and run water to distribute the mixture throughout the unit. This is a great deodorizer.

We hope that you enjoyed a couple of cleaning hacks form SERVPRO of Rolla, we are here to help so call, 573-368-5555.

Changing Winter Weather

Storm Damage Changing Winter Weather Results of what can happen 12 hours later.....Snow!

When living in Missouri you never know what your going to get. Weather changes so much in Missouri you can have all four seasons in one week. Frozen pipes are often those exposed to the cold weather, such as those outside your house, or in cold areas such as basements, attics, garages, or kitchen cabinets.  *A frozen pipe can burst at the point where the ice blockage inside the pipe is located, but typically the rupture is caused by the backflow pressure between the water source and the blockage. A burst pipe can cause considerable damage to your property if not addressed quickly. **Here are some tips to prevent pipes from freezing.

*Be sure to completely drain water from the swimming pool and sprinkler lines, as well as outside hoses.

*Open kitchen cabinets to let warm air near the plumbing.

*When the weather is extremely cold, let water drip from faucets that may come from exposed pipes.

*Keep your heat set to the same temperature both day and night.

An added bonus is the natural deodorization achieved while using this media.

Other uses for Soda Blast media:

  • Removal of soot from brick or stone fireplaces
  • Removal of mold from crawl spaces
  • Removal of old paint
  • Removal of grease and gunk from tools and auto parts
  • Graffiti from buildings

Why SERVPRO Frozen Pipes Beware! Accumulating Ice

Winter is coming and weather is cold, here are some tips to help when there is a chance for your pipes to freeze:

  • Insulate Pipes Whenever Possible:  One step in preventing frozen pipes is to ensure that your pipes have some kind of insulation.  You can buy pipe insulation covers from your local hardware store.  If low on funds you could even wrap blankets or newspapers around the pipes.
  • Keep Your House Warm Even if you are Gone: Keep your house at a minimum of 68 F when you are away.
  • Disconnect outside Hose:  Disconnect and drain unused outdoor hoses to prevent water spigots from freezing.
  • Keep Cabinet Door Open:  Keep bathroom and kitchen sink cabinets open for warm air circulation.

If a unfortunate water loss happens in your home or business due to frozen pipes, call on the ones who care, SERVPRO of Rolla is here to help 24/7
