Sometimes water damages occur in the most inconvenient of places, for example a warehouse. These type of jobs need to done quickly and efficiently in order to ensure there is no further damage to the contents and that the company get back to work quickly. 

Sometimes baseboards get in the way

When there is standing water in any area of a house or commercial site, there is risk of the baseboards getting saturated. Once baseboards are saturated, it becomes more difficult to dry the walls and the studs behind them. At that point we remove baseboards and dry directly in that area. That was the case at this commercial site.

Commercial Water Damage

We don’t think about what causes a water damage until we have one. This commercial site unexpectedly got a water damage and it was all caused by this pipe that froze overnight. Our team was called and we extracted, cleaned and sanitized. This site is now looks like nothing ever happened.

ERP is a solution.

If a commercial site has an ERP, or the Emergency READY Profile, with our franchise, we are one of the first calls made when a disaster hits. We were the first call to this commercial site. Because they had an ERP done, we knew exactly where everything was and who were the ones in charge. 

Fire in the Church!

As we know, fires can start from anything, but they mostly start in the kitchen. This church had a fire that started in the kitchen and it affected the whole property. We restored what was damaged by fire and cleaned the air ducts to remove the smoke odor. 

Water Damage From A Major Storm

This two-story home flooded from a major storm. This photos shows just one room affected. Luckily the tile flooring did not need to be. The majority of our demolition was drywall cuts. 

Hail storm damage

Damage by Storm

Sufficient water rushed into this property in Cutler Bay to saturate the carpeting in the hallway and also to wick up the drywall. We removed that section of paneling since the material was not salvageable, and also for drying purposes. Our green devices are at work to complete the restoration service.

Storm Water Damage

This photo shows the aftermath of some demolition from a property damaged by storm water. The pool of water you see was sitting underneath carpet that had to be ripped up. We then extracted the water and installed our specialty drying equipment.

Residential Storm Damage

The level of devastation was unlike anything we had ever seen before, and we were happy to have been down in the area to help residents get their homes properly cleaned and disinfected so that rebuild efforts could begin.

Storm Equipment

Mold Chamber

It is protocol to secure the area where mold is present to prevent it from joining the air and spreading around the rest of the house. This is what a chamber looks like and only certified mold specialist are allowed to enter. 

Mold Grows Quickly

It is as simple as a small drip drop coming from a small crack in the ceiling. Or a small leak coming from the back of the refrigerator, mold can grow where there is moisture present. It takes 48 hours after for mold to be present. When mold is present in your home, call us, SERVPRO.

Shower Mold

Mold in bathrooms is a common problem in almost every home. Darkness combined with excessive moisture provides the perfect conditions for consistent mold growth. If you are consistently experiencing mold in your bathroom, regardless of how often you clean, then you may have a larger, hidden growth problem

Home and a Kitchen Fire

The small kitchen fire in this home was quickly put out with an ABC type extinguisher. No damage, just a pungent odor from the protein (meat) that fueled the flame. SERVPRO techs can quickly wipe down any smoke residue and place a hydroxyl generator to neutralize the airborne odorous particles. A light deodorizing to follow, and our customer stated that she felt "Like it never even happened."

Fire Damage

Fire damage in this office building left that telltale smoke odor behind after the initial fire damage cleanup. Cleaning up the odor required several steps including the use of air scrubbers like the one pictured above.

Fire Damage

A space heater, seldom used in this climate, tipped over and started a smoldering fire in this room. The dry smoke, from carpet fibers, was not difficult to wipe off the walls with special dry sponges. We then fogged the living area to kill the lingering smoky odor.

Smoke Damage

The smoker's cigarette started a fire in this rental unit that covered the walls and furniture with dirty smoke. This dry smoke was a challenge to clean up and, even more difficult, was the removal of the odors. We set up an hydroxyl generator to capture the smelly smoke particulates.

Cutler Bay Smoke Damage

The smoke-stained ceiling in this Cutler Bay condo was limited to the kitchen. By sealing off the doorway, SERVPRO technicians prevented the odors from circulating to other rooms. Hydroxyl generators restored decent indoor air quality as the cleaning was taken place.

Living Room Sustains Water Damage

The residents of this residential property came home to a not quite so lovely surprise when they found their living room carpet covered in standing water. Their fish tank had a leak and spilled gallons of water onto the living room floor. Our crew at SERVPRO was called out, and we arrived shortly with our equipment and expertise.

Commercial Water Damage in Cutler Bay

A water line that was installed under the concrete pad cracked and soaked the tiled aisle and some of the adjacent carpeting. SERVPRO techs quickly removed the small amount of puddling water and then set up humidity battling equipment to restore the ambient relative humidity (RH) in the showroom to prevent secondary water damage to the inventory.

Cutler Ridge Water Damage

The broken feed line in the attic drenched the ceiling material with water in this Cutler Ridge condo.

Hurricane season is currently underway. For the Atlantic, the season begins June 1 and runs through November 30.The Eastern Pacific hurricane season began in mid-May and also ends November 30.

Hurricanes can be life-threatening as well as cause serious property-threatening hazards such as flooding, storm surge, high winds, and tornadoes. While the primary threat is in coastal areas, many inland areas can also be affected by these hazards, as well as by secondary events such as power outages as a result of high winds and landslides due to rainfall.
