Did you know that the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade is the oldest Thanksgiving Day parade in the country!  

The 1.4-mile 6ABC Dunkin’ Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade is the oldest Thanksgiving parade in the country and a true Philadelphia tradition. The city streets make way for massive floats and giant balloons, plus local performers from choirs, dance groups, marching bands and more. And Santa himself arrives in grand fashion, ushering Philadelphia into the holiday season.

Now in its 98th year, the annual Thanksgiving Day parade promises another visual and celebratory feast. So bundle up, grab the kids or a group of friends and head out for an early holiday treat.

Best Places to Watch
1. One of the best places to watch is at the parade’s finish at the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

2. The south side of Eakins Oval (in front of the Art Museum) is also recommended.

3. Other locations along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, like Logan Circle, are also good bets.

4. If you need to warm up, head to the nearby Comcast Building and catch the Comcast Holiday Spectacular on the massive Comcast Experience Video Wall.

Tree fall on your home? Advise & information about what to do

8/3/2017 (Permalink)

Part of tree branch that hit a roof due to a storm. SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmont is available 24/7 at 215-791-2302.

Tree fall on your home? Advise & information about what to do if this happens to you.

With so many recent summer storms trees are falling causing damage everywhere, including homes in Philadelphia!  Damage can be significant and there are many homeowners that don't know where to start in this situation. SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmount can help.  Here is some information and advise on what to do should this happen to you.

The sudden storms of summer are short and strong. Usually trees don't fall just because they are old. The rain water can become overwhelming in the ground making it soft and tree roots do not hold well in soft, wet dirt. This along with strong wind surges cause the tree to fall, wind pulls the tree right up from the soft ground causing the fall.  

If the tree does hit your home there will likely be damage, depending on the size of the tree the amount of damage can vary. Here are the basic steps to take to secure your home:

1. If you are in the home when the fall occurs, immediate walk out-side and visually look at your home for damage. Use an entrance far from the tree if possible. IE: If the main entrance is blocked, go out the back door.  

2. Call your local Fire or Police and advise them of the tree fall, sometimes there can be street wires that go down with the tree. If this is a problem the local authorities will help secure the area for safety.

3. Call your Insurance Carrier and report a claim for the damage to your home.  Get a claim number and you adjusters contact information. Also make sure they explain the claim process and how your insurance coverage applies in this situation.

4. Call a Tree Company to have the tree professionally removed. Your insurance carrier may assign a company, if not ask for recommendations. DO NOT attempt yourself, this is very dangerous!

5. Call SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmount to begin mitigation of the damage. Also to board or secure areas of the house that is needed. The sooner we begin mitigation the better.  Damage can get worse the longer it waits.

6. Once all of this is done, begin looking for a contractor if any reconstruction is needed. SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmount can also help you with this, we one of few SERVPRO Franchises that does reconstruction after mitigation.

At the end of the process we at SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmont will it "Like it never even happened"

Philadelphia Residents: Summer Grill Fire's

8/3/2017 (Permalink)

Spring and Summer is the perfect time of year for a cook-out and grilling dinner. SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmount wants all of our Philadelphia friends to be safe when grilling!

Fire's can be caused easily on a grill; gas grills are known for having a grease fire & charcoal grills can catch fire depending on what you are using to grill with, IE; using wood-chips to flavor the food.

Here is basic safety advise for a grill fire:

When you are grilling make sure there is always a fire extinguisher near-by along with safety goggles and heavy gloves. These are necessary to put out a fire on your grill.  Also have your local fire department information.  Should a grill fire happen, immediately use the extinguisher, gloves, and goggles to put the fire out. If you are using a gas grill turn the gas off completely. Have a person near-by call the fire department or 911 if you can not control the fire.

Grill Fire's can become large & cause damage to you home or outside deck, SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmount is prepared 24/7 & 365 days a year for emergency services . Call for service at 215-791-2302.

Philadelphia, do you know SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmont provides Content Cleaning Service, Inventory Service and Pack-Out Service?

8/3/2017 (Permalink)

Content to be cleaned after a fire, Already on Inventory List and Photo Report.

Did you know SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmount provides Content Cleaning, Inventory Service and Pack-out’s?

Some people find the Content part of their claim/loss more stressful because of the specifics involved.  SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmount can lift that weight for our customers, literally- we also Pack-out the contents!

Content Inventory Service:  Affected items are evaluated, documented & photographed to provide a detailed Content Inventory List and Photo Report.  Content is evaluated into 3 categories: 1. clean/restore, 2. possible salvage, & 3. total loss/damage beyond repair.  All of the affected items are photographed and we note recommendations for specialist, i.e.: Dry Cleaning Service or Electronic Specialist. This information and all items is documented in a detailed Content Inventory Sheet and Photo Report

Content Cleaning Service:  After the evaluation, we move-on to content that can be restored and/or cleaned.  Each item will be properly cleaned and restored, including laundering clothing, sheets, etc.. The items for possible salvage and total loss are placed aside or moved as they need to be inspected by the insurance adjuster. After the inspection, we dispose of the total loss items and follow adjuster instruction for salvage items.

Pack-out Service:  With a larger loss, sometimes content has to be moved into storage while the rest of the loss/claim is being handled.  The same process above is followed, but the content that is restored must be temporally moved into storage.  We have storage vendors, including on-site storage (Storage Pod), that we can provide unless a storage location was specifically assigned by your adjuster.  After all of the content is cleaned or restored, it will be properly packed into box’s or wrapping and moved into storage.  We carefully documented items into a Detailed Pack-out Inventory List.  All boxes have a location and number (Kitchen #1, Bathroom #1, etc.) and we document items in each box, this creates the Pack-out Inventory. Large Items are wrapped and listed alone.  If you need a specific item or box, it is easily found. After the loss has come to an end, we move the content back to the loss location. 

SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmount is prepared 24/7 & 365 days a year for emergency services at 215-791-2302.

Fire, Smoke, or Soot Damage in Philadelphia? Useful Information

Fire, Soot, or Smoke Damage in Philadelphia? Useful Information for Home Owners!

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  Our technicians are IICRC Certified, highly trained, & very experienced in this field. We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care. We do go above and beyond to make you home "Like it Never Even Happened"

Soot & Smoke Restoration Services

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action. From there our certified and highly trained technicians can properly begin the mitigation & restoration process. 

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Spring Garden/Fairmont will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

Dear SERVPRO of Spring Garden,

I want to thank you for your amazing help during my Halloween crisis! If not for your fast response and excellent work my child’s Halloween would have surely been ruined! We were panicked when we found water gushing into our finished basement & did not know what to do.  

Thank to your company & recommendation of a excellent plumber, we found that a water pipe burst!

The plumber came out prompt, then your company immediate after. It took only 2 weeks for the entire process to be complete. The plumber fixed our pipe right away, and Your company begun right after he was done to begin drying everything out. Most impressed that you had started to put my walls back, carpets, paint, and so much more right away.  

In two weeks our home looked exactly the way it had before! Just in time for my children s Halloween party.  This meant so much to me & my child.

I cant thank you enough. We will recommend you ever time a friend of ours is in need!

Christmas Tree & Lights - Fire Safety Tips for our Philadelphia Family's

11/30/2016 (Permalink)

Philadelphia Fire Hazard, - Christmas Tree! Although a fake tree, still a danger: 1. Close to two heating sources 2. lights on during the night.

Attention our Philadelphia Friends & Family: Avoid a Holiday Fire Disaster! 

Did you know that Christmas trees alone result in 13 million dollars, annually, in property damage? More importantly, these fires present real risk towards family, friends, and homes! While having a live tree in your home is a tradition to many & beautiful, beware of dangers and take simple precautions; The combination of tree dryness, electrical malfunction with lights and poorly located heating sources can make for a devastating combination.


  • Fresh trees are less likely to catch fire, so look for a tree with vibrant green needles that are hard to pluck and don’t break easily from its branches. The tree shouldn’t be shedding its needles readily.
  • Always place your tree away from heat sources like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights, and keep the tree base filled with water to avoid a dry-out.
  • Make sure all your indoor and outdoor Christmas lights have been tested in a lab by the UL or ETL/ITSNA for safety, and throw out any damaged lights.
  • Any lights you use outdoors must be labeled suitable for exterior placement, and be sure to plug them into a ground-fault circuit interrupter protected receptacle.
  • Keep all your holiday candles away from your Christmas tree, surrounding furniture and décor.
  • Bedtime means lights off! ­ Don’t forget to turn your Christmas tree lights of each night.

When your tree begins to drop its needles, it’s time to say goodbye to your evergreen foliage until next year. So this year, follow our tips to avoid becoming another statistic. 

Remember to call SERVPRO of Spring Garden if emergency services are required @ 215-791-2302.

Available 24/7 & 365 days a year.

Happy Holidays from all of us at SERVPRO Spring Garden / Fairmont!

Fire!!!! Tips on what to do in the event of a FIRE for our Philadelphia Residents

11/22/2016 (Permalink)

Tips on the FIRE Do's & Don'ts

What to do: Immediately contact 911, Your Insurance Carrier and your local SERVPRO Professional

  1. Keep hands clean. Soot on hands can further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.
  2. Blow or brush vacuum loose soot particles from upholstery, drapes and carpets.
  3. Place old towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.
  4. Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets.
  5. If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator completely and prop doors open.

What NOT to do:

  1. Send garments to ordinary dry cleaner. Improper cleaning may set smoke odor. Your local SERVPRO Professional can assist you with professional dry-cleaners to treat the odor.
  2. Attempt to clean any electrical appliances, TV sets, radios, etc. that may have been close to fire, heat or water without first consulting an authorized repair service. Your local SERVPRO can assist you with this as well.
  3. Attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting your SERVPRO Professional.
  4. Attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first consulting your SERVPRO Professional.

Did you know that microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors? This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. 

Here are some Mold Facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If you think your home or business has a mold problem, SERVPRO or Spring Garden can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
