Residential Storm Flooding

Residential Storm Flooding

When prolonged rainfall hits it can cause disastrous flooding. Some homes can get more damaged then others and with this home so much water came in that the home became flooded and had to be completely gutted. Many homes and businesses can be ruined with a few feet of standing water. That's where we come in and make it good as new.

Which is caused by the heavy rain which can lead to major damage to homes and businesses. We help remove the water and repair the damages in most cases.

Quick Action To Storm Damage

Quick Action To Storm Damage

Whether insured or not, it is important for property owners to document damage with photographs or video, and immediately, to begin loss mitigation procedures themselves; or hire a qualified contractor to do this on their behalf.  It is totally inappropriate to put off mitigation while waiting for an insurance claims representative to arrive on the scene to evaluate the loss. 

By that time, in all probability sufficient time will have passed to grow and amplify microorganisms, which may not be covered by insurance.  Loss mitigation is defined by insurance policies as "reasonable and prudent measures designed to preserve, protect and secure property from further damage," including microbial growth and amplification.

Commercial Mold Damage

Commercial Mold Damage

When you own a commercial building, the stakes to keep your occupants safe is much higher. Whether you run a school, hospital, office building or government structure, indoor air quality is by far an important factor.

What happens when your occupants start complaining of a musky smell, or even worse, their allergies are acting up? You need to make sure that if mold is the culprit, that you act fast to avoid any further damage. Mold Removal Team understands the nuances of remediation of ANY commercial building.

Commercial Black Water Damage

Commercial Black Water Damage

When floodwater contains multiple contaminants and viruses that present serious risks of illness, it is considered black water. Flooding is a major risk in many locations throughout the US and can bring about black water contamination. Several factors contribute to flooding, including snow thaw, storms and hurricanes, all of which can cause sewage backflows, as well as rising water from rivers, streams and seawater.Remediating black water contamination in a building requires careful planning and utilization of specialized equipment. A licensed contractor will know how to assess the damages, sanitize and dry the affected areas. 

Commercial Drying

Commercial Drying

While there are many methods for drying structural components and contents, the “in-place” drying system has been taught in the industry and used by drying contractors since the early ’80s. In those days, this method of drying components, without significant removal of furnishings or fixtures, was somewhat restricted, due to limitations imposed by extraction, evaporation and dehumidification equipment. In recent years, however, drying technology (extraction, evaporation, dehumidification), along with better understanding of psychrometry, has advanced in major ways so that in-place drying has, in some cases, become far more safe and practical.

Commercial Water Damage

Commercial Water Damage

Water damage in a commercial building can be particularly troublesome because it can affect more than a single occupant of the building. This is particularly true in multi-floor buildings, where water can travel from an upper story all the way to the ground floor. Multiple businesses or offices can be put out of commission until water damage is corrected, leading to loss of income and even severe hardship for the employees if they are unable to return to work for a period of time while damage is dealt with.

Causes of water damage in a multi floor commercial building can include:

  • Heavy rain and flooding
  • Burst water pipes
  • Overflowing toilets or sinks
Hidden Dangers of Fire Damages

Hidden Dangers of Fire Damages

The dangers caused by a fire aren’t extinguished when the flames are put out.  Yes, it can be dangerous structurally to enter a fire damaged home, but did you know that there are also many hidden dangers associated with fires?  Fire damage has a way of lingering for years and if it is not cleaned up and attended to properly you probably won’t get all of the soot and mold. Which means it is dangerous for your health as well just for example:

  • It Might Have Disturbed Asbestos
  • The Soot Can Get Into Your Bloodstream
Soot cleanup

Soot Should be cleaned up ASAP

If immediate clean up is not done, it can lead to devastating effects.  Within minutes of fire and smoke damage, appliances and many items will discolor to a yellow hue.  After a few hours, acid will stain bathrooms and many other areas of the home or business.  Within days, walls will discolor permanently and items will begin to rust due to the acid residue.   Finally, after weeks the cost of clean-up will become substantially more expensive. The building and furnishings can be permanently damaged by the acid left behind. Soot residue will be layered throughout the home or business. The seal of Certification by the Institute should be shown on any provider’s website.  This shows the customer the reliability and the expertise of the service provider.

How does mold grow?

Mold is a really big bother and not only some of the time but all of the time. Mold grows on an abundance of things but it seeks MOISTURE, WARMTH, and FOOD, and all three conditions are necessary for it to grow. Mold is most likely to find a place to grow in a bathroom, basement or kitchen, but it can grow in other rooms if conditions are favorable.

What to do in the Event of an Electrical Fire?

In case of an electrical fire, make sure you do not use water to put out the fire. If the fire is small and you see something starting to smoke and catch on fire, turn off the circuit at the breaker, if its plugged into a wall then unplug and use a fire extinguisher to put out any flames. If no appropriate fire extinguisher is available, you can also use baking soda to extinguish an electrical fire. Typically, an overloaded circuit will flip a breaker. If you know a circuit is being overloaded but the breaker didn't trip, if you can safely do so, you should turn off thebreaker yourself or flip the main breaker to the whole house. If you have had a fire, find an electrician to evaluate what you'll need to do to prevent another fire from occurring.

Understanding Mold

Mold exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is false. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold is 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 on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water or moisture. 
  • 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.
Do's and Dont's After a Fire

Do's and Dont's After a Fire


  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot from being embedded into upholstery and carpets.
  • Keep hands clean so as not to further soil upholstery or walls.
  • Place clean towels or linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open.
  • Wash houseplants.
  • Change HVAC filter.


  • Don't attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces or shampoo carpet without contacting your SERVPRO Franchise Professional.
  • Don't attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire.
  • Don't use any canned or packaged food or beverages that may have been stored near the fire.
  • Don't turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet. The wiring may be damaged.
  • Don't send garments to an ordinary dry cleaner. Improper cleaning may set smoke odor.

SERVPRO process of floating technique

Our "Floating" Technique

The way to start this drying process is by using a technique known as "floating". This process needs to be done properly so not all of the carpet gets pulled up so the air can have a rotation like effect underneath the carpet. This process will dry out the carpet so it can be saved allowing us to finish the job more quickly. As you can plainly see we take pride in what we do and with that we were able to save the carpet.

Bedroom Fire Safety

Bedrooms are where fires often start. More than 600 lives were lost due to fire that started in the bedroom. Common causes of these fires are electrical devices that were left unattended. These are just some basic reminders to keep you safe.

  • Children are at a higher risk for deaths caused by bedroom fires. They are prone to playing with matches. In their bedroom, minimize materials that are easily combustible. Inform your child of the dangers of playing with fire.
  • Do not plug cords near beds. Do not trap cords near the wall or place them under carpets. Also, do not leave laptops on your bed.
  • Never smoke in bed – No matter how conscious you are.

Bedroom fire safety is not difficult. Giving attention to small details can make a big impact, and will give you safety and peace of mind. Emergency preparedness and knowledge of fire safety are a must in order to protect your family.

Photo of attic fires

Some Leading Causes of Attic Fires

Electrical Malfunction

The single most common cause of residential attic fires is electrical malfunction. When circuits are overloaded and the breaker fails to respond appropriately, the excess “draw” could result in a fire.


Roughly 5% of residential attic fires are caused by home heating systems.

If your home is run on a traditional heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) system, it’s a good idea to have it inspected at least once a year.


An estimated 13% of residential attic fires are caused by natural sources. This may include lighting, fallen trees or even rain water dripping onto electrical outlets and wires.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to completely protect your attic against natural fires such as this. However, you can ensure the roofing is intact and use fire-retardant materials to decrease the chance of natural-cause fires.

SERVPRO informing the community

Informing Our Community

We always want our community to always be prepared in any kind of disaster. So we try to keep them informed by giving presentations on how we can try to help keep them safe. Also, if in the event a disaster does occur we let our community know how we can assist them so we can get them back in their home as fast as possible.
