Spring Time Inspection

3/18/2019 (Permalink)

As spring is getting closer, more rain seems likely so it might be a great time to inspect your gutters to see if they might need some maintenance. Gutters full of debris can cause a lot of water damage. You should inspect them frequently. If they are full and clogging the downspouts, the overflow of water could be going in all the wrong places such as your walls. Water damage can become a major issue if not handled quickly. Checking things such as the guttering and outdoor water spickets can help prevent huge problems as well as prevent huge expenses. Regular maintenance is key to preventing water damage on the outside. For people with outdoor pools and fountains, checking all hoses and connectors is a great idea and should be a part of your spring time inspection as well! We can't always prevent all types of water damage but the ones we can will help to minimize the possibility! Take a little time now for your own peace of mind! We see a lot of water damage at SERVPRO that could have been prevented! Create your own spring time inspection list and enjoy your spring! 

Working with the damaged area

Water Damage Working with the damaged area Portion of Train Town!!!!

We have seen a lot of different situations and each has its own plan to correct the issue. In this case, we have water damage at a residence due to flooding. The residence has an extremely detailed and in depth train community. The entire setup of train and the town are up on stilts. Extracting the area with an RX20 was not an option due to all the legs from the train town every few feet. It was not possible to get more than a wand in between the legs, and it would have been almost impossible to relocate the entire setup. Our technician had to do some seriously planning. He used a a special mix of our fans and the dehumidifiers set to not disturb the client's hard work. Although complicated, we at SERVPRO kept the client and their town right on track!
