Prom Dress Damaged by Smoke and Soot

A recent referral call to SERVPRO of Jefferson, Franklin and Perry Counties, had us responding to a fire that had started in the basement of a home. The fire structure damage was limited to the basement, however smoke and soot had spread throughout the entire basement as well as the main level of the home. 

Fortunately there were no injuries and the call to SERVPRO placed crews on site to board up areas of the exterior of the home so it was secure from the exterior elements. From there crews began the process of restoring the home. 

Our laundry department was there to grab emergency laundry to process back at the shop. One item, a dress for an upcoming dress was included in the emergency laundry. Utilizing our specialized laundry systems that can take smoke and soot odors and stains out of clothing we were able to save the dress so it can be ready for the special event. 

Our laundry systems are unlike any other and not available anywhere in our area. It's just one more reason why SERVPRO is there to help you through a disaster at your home or business. We’re available 24-7 at 618-435-8200.

Water Heater Floods a Home

5/16/2022 (Permalink)

You’re away at work all day and then it happens….your water heater causes water damage to your home. We get calls from these types of damages every day and have a team available around the clock to make sure those problems go away. 

The hazards of having a leak or large amount of water discharged from your water heater can sometimes be easily noticed and other times it may be later until you find how much damage has been done. 

Things to look for:

 -Routinely inspect your water heater, especially older ones as they may be more prone to failing.

- Soft or squishy floors.

-If you notice any water coming up from the seams in your flooring.

-Water in your crawl space.

It doesn’t take a lot of water to create a lot of damage to floors, subfloors and into floor joists if the problem persists long enough. With water getting trapped under you floor it may not be noticeable at first.

SERVPRO utilizes specialty equipment that isn’t in stores. This equipment expedites the removal of water to help get your home back in the dry. Box fans and small dehumidifiers that are available in retail outlets can assist in drying, however they aren’t strong enough to handle water damage. Bottom line is if the water stays longer, the more damage it can cause. 

Water damage? Call us immediately for a free estimate, we also work with all insurance providers at 618-435-8200.
