Cleaning Spring Cleaning Your Carpets Cleaning up after cute

On a normal day we trek in and out of the house. We follow the carpet path that leads to the couch, bathroom, bedroom, and of course, the front or back door.  I would say the majority of us has someone cute whether it be a young one, or a pet that is making headway with their own trails, and silly spots found in odd locations throughout the home, or business. 

At SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties we specialize in carpet cleaning, and spot removal.  No job to large, or to small, each treated with the same professional cleaning you deserve.

We are here to help you clean up after cute has run through.

Community Restoration At Stevens Park Underway Steven's Park Mulch is delivered

Today marks the actual day that Stevens Park can officially say that the restoration has begun. Two semi-trucks loaded with mulch arrived early this morning. While the sun was shining, there was a definite chill to the air as the trucks were unloaded. Chilly or not, my heart was warmed just knowing that by April 28th the restoration would be complete. 

 Let the celebration begin! The Grand Celebration on Saturday April 28th for the completed Steven's Park will be a wonderful, and fun filled day for the community.

SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties will be participating in the activities scheduled for the day.  MARK YOUR CALANDERS! You don't want to miss out on the Live Music, Games, and Food.  More importantly, the community coming together in celebration of the new and improved Steven's Park.

Fire Damage Andrew Jackson Middle School Fire Shakes Up Community SERVPRO onsite at Andrew Jackson Middle School For Clean UP

The small community located between Kershaw, and Heath Springs South Carolina were startled and surprised to hear a fire had broken out at Andrew Jackson Middle School late Thursday evening. The Kershaw Volunteer Fire Department was the first to respond, and other departments joined in giving the night sky a smoky illusion with over twenty fire vehicle lights lighting the smoked filled night.

Thankfully no one was hurt, and it was determined that the fire began in a custodians storage closet.  I was afforded the opportunity to walk the dark wet smoke filled halls this morning and see first-hand the extent of damage.

SERVPRO of Kershaw & Lancaster Counties are there already working to restore the school back to "Like it never even happened" status.  Crews will be working around the clock until the cleanup is completed. 

SERVPRO would like to thank all the responders for their diligence and hard work to cut short what could of been a horrible loss to our community.

Community Build it Together So They Can Play Together Stevens Park Theme is the History of Kershaw South Carolina

We at SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties are excited to take part in the rebuilding of Stevens Park located in Kershaw, South Carolina.

This is a park loved, and utilized by many in our community.  Unfortunately in the spring of 2017 it was discovered the protective weather coating used on the equipment failed, and due to weather conditions the equipment quickly deteriorated causing immediately closure of the park for safety reasons.  The community was deeply saddened and affected by the closure, and is looking forward to the rebuilding and reopening of the park.

The History of Kershaw is the park theme, and will focus on the needs of all. Utilizing the old footprint of the park, we are excited to see the heritage of our history a place we can enjoy daily.  There will be more accessibility for those with needs affording each of us the ability to play together.

The community has come together as a whole from fund raising events, to enlisting volunteers to help with the rebuild.

Joining in the community efforts SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties is donating a Carpet Cleaning to be auctioned off on March 04, 2018 at the Kershaw Auction House.  Donations are needed, and whether it be large, or small, new, or used (as long as it's in good shape) your donation will be greatly appreciated.

Example of accepted donations (all tax deductible); Appliances, Furniture, Bicycles, Toys, Lawn Equipment, Tools, Vacation Packages, Day or Weekend Gift Certificates, Cleaning Coupons, Non-perishable Foods, Lunch or Dinner Gift Certificates.  Regardless, any and all donations will help to rebuild our park.

March 17th-30th, 2018 is the dates scheduled for the rebuilding of the park.  Short, Tall, Big, or Small, all hands will be put to use.

Great news for those who would like to sponsor a component of the park by either an individual group, or business.  Your donation is 100% tax deductible.

SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties looks forward to working together with our community to make the rebuilding of Stevens Park in Kershaw, South Carolina an event to remember.

See you there!

Warm Up Wisely

Fire Damage Warm Up Wisely Too Much Heat At Your Feet

Winter is upon us, and so is the potential for families and or businesses turning to heating resources they feel might be beneficial in helping to heat a home, or business.

Statically billions are spent each year, yes each year, on damage caused by fires.  Lives are lost, and many are injured.

  • In the winter time the rural communities will utilize portable space heaters, wood stoves, and kerosene heaters.  Unfortunately it is a common risk taken without the complete understanding of the fire potential should any of these be used improperly.

Below are some winter safety tips, and general fire prevention tips to help keep you, your families, and homes safe.

  • Space heaters need space---keep furniture and objects away
  • Electric space heaters must be plugged directly into a wall outlet---NOT AN EXTENSION CORD
  • Appliances must be plugged directly into the wall outlet, not an extension cord to avoid the potential of an electrical fire. 
  • NEVER use gasoline in kerosene heaters, or camp stove oil units.
  • NEVER fill a heating unit when hot
  • Be sure your chimney is clean before using, and that your damper is working properly
  • Use an insert or heavy screen to prevent hot embers from leaving the fireplace compartment, and keep logs from rolling out
  • ALWAYS allow ashes to cool before removing, and ALWAYS place ashes inside a metal container.  Always store ash containers at least 10 feet from buildings
  • NEVER leave food cooking, or candles burning unattended.
  • NEVER use a grill as a heat source inside the home, or business.
  • ALWAYS use portable generators outside away from doors and windows, NEVER use inside of enclosed areas of a home or buildings.
  • Make sure you have working smoke alarms outside of each sleeping area, and at least one carbon monoxide alarm in the home.

If you are in need of smoke detectors either call or stop by your local fire department and they will be happy to provide what is needed in your home at no cost.  If you are unable to install, they will be happy to assist and install for you.

We at SERVPRO of Kershaw & Lancaster Counties wish you a safe and warm winter.  Should you have any questions, or are in need  of assistance please feel free to contact us.

SERVPRO of Kershaw & Lancaster Counties IS YOUR NUMBER ONE RESOURCE FOR FIRE, WATER, AND MOLD REMEDIATION.
