SERVPRO does reconstruction for you!

With another huge building boom going on here in Horry & Georgetown Counties we decided to give you a few pointers if you are looking to do a little reconstruction on your property!

In a previous post, we gave you 5 great tips on reconstruction here on The Grand Strand. Well here are 5 more to keep your wheels spinning:

  1. Bring in Natural Light Without Adding Windows - the use of light tubes are all the rage right now!
  2. Check the recycling center, Habitat for Humanity or even Goodwill for supplies, people are always donation doors and windows and other cool useful supplies.
  3. Do not use custom sized items, using stock sized items will greatly increase your chances of getting items quickly and reduce the amount you will pay for them.
  4. Make decisions before you start, there will be plenty that changes along the way but having a good foundation will help the project move smoothly.
  5. Hire SERVPRO, we have been building, reconstructing and remodeling homes and businesses here on The Grand Strand for years, we can help you too!

How to make your Grand Strand area roof last longer. Part 3

5/20/2019 (Permalink)

Those gutters are not going to clean themselves!

You just had your Storm Damaged roof replaced by the awesome team at SERVPRO, so what is another area to help you to keep it in great shape?

The third suggestion we have to keep your roof in tip-top shape has to do with your gutters.


Just about anyone with a ladder and a bucket can remove the debris that gets caught in your gutters.

Using a hose or even a blower can help with some of the stubborn muck that can form. It is best to do this between fall and winter that way you can get all the leaves out after they are done falling from the trees and before the really cold weather hits.

Definitely check your seams and attachments while you are up there, look for rust or corrosion that can cause the gutters to snap and break.

If you do not want to get up on your roof yourself, call SERVPRO we can help! 843-236-6278 | 843-436-2121

Flooring Services In Horry County

5/30/2018 (Permalink)

When it comes to flooring we never cut corners!

Flooring is the foundation of a great home ... literally!

Flooring can be carpet, wood, concrete or other kinds of building materials but they are all subject to damage from water, fire and or mold.

When your flooring becomes damaged you can try to fix it yourself and some people have a small level of success but you have to ask yourself do I know enough about the science of drying to make sure the flooring I'm putting down is going on a completely dry surface that will not become mold infested because I'm trapping moisture underneath and then have to completely redo the whole process again?

If you do know about moisture control and the science of drying, by all means, do that labor intensive time investing and all around not fun project yourself. If you do not think you can pull it off, call SERVPRO.

SERVPRO has the know-how and equipment to have your flooring project done right and fast!

Who Fixes Fire Damaged Buildings In Conway?

3/8/2017 (Permalink)

We can fix larger scale fire damage problems too!

When you hear the word SERVPRO you might think carpet cleaner, water removal or fire damage fixers and you would be right ... but we can do so much more!

Here is a quick clip of just one of the larger scale projects we have going on in Conway South Carolina area that involves fire damage repair!

We have been involved in this massive apartment building rebuild from the time it caught fire (our Operations Manager was one of the first on the scene) to latest phase of rebuilding.

The job first called for gutting out 4 of the 12 units completely. Then we had to secure the buildings newly remodeled openings (thanks blazing hot fire) and wait for the structure and engineering team to create a plan.

Now we are smack dab in the middle of putting humpty dumpty together again and we are working harder than ever to make sure the units look "Like it never even happened."™

If you have fire damage and need a professional to come look at it, call SERVPRO today 843-236-6278!

Dryer Vent Installation Myrtle Beach

SERVPRO Does Dryer Vent Cleanings and Installations

Dryer vents need to be installed correctly if you want the machine to live a long healthy life.

Dryer vents remove moist and potentially hazardous air (could possibly contain carbon monoxide) from your home. SERVPRO can easily install most dryer vents for you. If you are going to do it yourself it is important to remember not to use screws as they can catch lint and potentially cause fires, use foil tape instead to seal any joints in the duct work.Most installs are pretty much the same five steps:


Here is a quick video of a beautifully installed dryer vent that SERVPRO just finished in one of our current jobs.

SERVPRO Creates Hope

8/10/2016 (Permalink)

Our team worked fast and hard to get the job done as fast as possible!

In 2015 SERVPRO of Horry & Georgetown Co's developed a program called Creating Hope.

This program was designed to help those in need due to a sudden life changing event or loss that caused them to not be able to help themselves like they used to. We decided to take on small to mid sized projects around our community to help make life a little bit easier for those people who found themselves in uncharted waters.

Projects include but are not limited to widening a door frame to be able to get a wheel chair through, building a ramp to make coming home and leaving easier, lowering shelves and cabinets for those who are suddenly wheelchair bound and installing handrails throughout a property.

This past week it was the handrails that got the call when our candidate who just finished a 6 month long round of cancer treatments found out that she didnt qualify for an insurance policy because her back porch did not have handrails installed.

Our builders quickly visited our candidates house measured, bought materials, built the handrails and received tons of thanks and praise from our candidate. This is what our Creating Hope program is all about. 

If you know of someone in need and they fit the criteria and live in Horry or Georgetown Co. please nominate them by clicking here.

Home Reconstruction Tips Myrtle Beach

2/19/2016 (Permalink)

Home reconstruction can be a nightmare, let SERVPRO do it for you.

5 Don’ts when it comes to home reconstructions:

1. Don't let kids or pets get in the way. It is not easy to try and work around the kids and pets. Keep them out and away from the construction, for safety and sanity.

2. Don't live in the home. If at all possible get out of the home during remodel or reconstruction so you are not pulling double duty of cleaning up your personal daily life stuff and the tools and materials of the construction crew.

3. Don't be a distraction. If you hired a professional don’t get in their way. They have a job to do and it will not help anyone if you are constantly bothering or lurking over them.

4. Don't ignore what the house wants. Maybe we should say don’t ignore what the house needs. Cosmetic improvements are fantastic but they should not be at the cost of the basic fundamental house needs like framing and foundation work.

5. Don't work without a design. A design gives you a plan and it sets the pace for the remodel, don’t go into the project blindly!

You can always skip the hassle of trying to things yourself and give SERVPRO a call, we’ll do it for you. 843-236-6278

Home Repairs Myrtle Beach

Home repairs done right.

5 Home Repairs You Can Do Yourself

Prep Your Paint Jobs

Grab a damp cloth and wipe down moldings and trim. Then remove everything from the walls and place all the furniture in the middle of the room. Mask any molding, built-ins and baseboards with painter's tape and start laying down drop cloths. Then you are good to go.

Noisy Doors

No likes a squeaky door. If your doors make noise every time you enter or exit it might be time to lube them up. First put a cloth under the door to catch the drips, then apply a few drops of oil or lubricant to each hinge. That should fix the squeak.

Caulking 101

First remove the old caulk or else the new caulk won’t stick. The make sure you cut the tip of the cauld tube at an angle and make sure the hole is big enough to fit the widest part of the gap your filling. Then it is literally like drawing a straight line along your gap.

Repairing a Faucet

In most instances, addressing a leak by changing out the washer is the most logical place to start diagnosing the problem.

Clogged Toilet

Get familiar with a plunger and snakes. The flanged plungers work the best because they create the best seal.

Home Remodeling Myrtle Beach

2/17/2016 (Permalink)

Don't forget we do remodeling!

5 Home Remodeling Don'ts

Whether you do the work yourself or you let a qualified professional from SERVPRO do your home remodel, you should heed these warnings:

1. Don’t procrastinate making decisions. Try to think about all the details before hand and make up your mind early.

2. Don't flip flop.  Changing your mind too much will make your budget grow and grow.

3. Don't buy your own supplies. Contractors will mark up prices of course but they still get better deals to start with.

4. Don't overdo it. Make sure you are not doing crazy interior remodels like top shelf counters and floors when your frames are rotting away.

5. Don't start without a backup fund. Things are going to pop up along the way and those things will cost money. 

You can call SERVPRO and we can remodel your home for you. 843-236-6278

Paint My House Myrtle Beach

2/16/2016 (Permalink)

SERVPRO paints homes everyday, let us paint yours!

4 Tips to consider before you paint your house:

1. Get it together -

Mixing multiple cans of the same color of paint into a larger container, such as a five-gallon bucket, will help ensure a uniform color is applied to your home's exterior.

2. Up Down Daniel-San -

When you paint from top to bottom you are controlling streaks and you can clean up drips more effectively allowing you to have a professional finish.

 3. Lock it up -

Follow this pro tip and make sure your paint lids are hammered on tightly after use. It will save the paint and your wallet!

4. Be aware of your surroundings -

Cover plants and bushes and make sure furniture is moved or draped as well. It’s easy to forget how messy painting can be until it’s too late.

House Painting takes lots of time and needs to be done right, call SERVPRO and save yourself the hassle. 843-236-6278
