Hotel Horror

Commercial Hotel Horror These hotel rooms had to be completely demolished due to set in moisture.

SERVPRO has the capability to handle any size job either commercial or residential. In this case the business owner needed walls and floors demolished due to water damage caused by a bursting pipe from the recent frigid temperatures in the region. The posted image shows how catastrophic water damage can be to a business. SERVPRO's technicians were able to respond and had the equipment on scene in an hour. SERVPRO technicians were able to excavate all standing water and used commercial dehumidifiers and air movers to begin the drying process to mitigate any further loss the business may incur. This incident is proof that there is no job too large for SERVPRO to handle and all of SERVPRO's locations are within 600 miles of 50% of the population. 

Hurricane Harvey Damage

Storm Damage Hurricane Harvey Damage Drywall removal due to water damage from Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas.

SERVPRO knows how important it is to remove contaminated drywall quickly before microbial growth begins to grow. Hurricane flood waters can carry lots of bacteria and filth which can cause microbial growth to set in unless properly taken care of. Most hurricane storm waters are often considered to be at least a category 2 water damage which carries gray water. As you can see in this image, trained technicians removed affected drywall and isolated the unsanitary material which also helps the drying process. SERVPRO ensures that homeowners are well taken care of by demolition and removal of infected materials and preventing microbial growth buildup through antimicrobial application. This specific incident was dealt with timely service and a professional courteous attitude. Thanks to this customer for giving us a positive review and allowing us to help her in her time of need.

Cutting Out Drywall

Storm Damage Cutting Out Drywall This picture shows how drywall has to be removed when it is saturated and not drying out quickly enough.

Water damage to homes during hurricanes are unavoidable, unfortunate situations. SERVPRO was able to service a victim of a water loss due to a hurricane recently. As seen in the picture, we removed parts of drywall on the walls as part of the drying process. Unless taken care of promptly, once water has saturated materials it is likely that microbial growth will occur. In this instance, the drywall was not drying quickly enough to prevent the microbial growth. We removed parts of the drywall in areas that could not be restored in order to salvage the rest of the drywall. The owner commented on the technicians who responding, saying that they were, "Professional and polite." SERVPRO has backing of a nation-wide corporation to insure that each franchise has the resources to get the job done right.

Smoky Mess

Fire Damage Smoky Mess Insulation makes it hard to eliminate smoky odors

You may wonder what causes the most fires in the United States.  Let me tell you what that would be--electrical fires are the most common cause of household fires across the United States.  Home and business owners must carefully watch extension cords, chargers, and cords that plug into the wall from TVs, etc.  If an electrical cord is old or beings to fray, immediately change it out!  If home owners keep a close watch over cords and electrical equipment, it will lessen the chance that your equipment would cause a fire in your own home. If you live in an older home or have a commercial business in an older facility, it may be worth your while to have a licensed electrician come in to check your outlets and any wires he or she can get to in your home.  Over time, wires can fray which could lead to a fire. If a fire does occur and you need assistance, call SERVPRO of Jackson at 601-353-2286.  Always here to help. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Water Damage In Bedroom

Water Damage Water Damage In Bedroom drying carpet and walls

This picture depicts a water damage scene in which our SERVPRO of Jackson team was called out to after water leaked into the bedroom.  The carpet was saturated upon arrival so the team jumped into action.  When this happens, the carpet must be dried out and in this case, the wall needed to be dried also.  After the moisture readings were complete,  the team pulled the carpet back from the wall and begin to set up the drying equipment.  In this scenario, the carpet is dried with different equipment that the SERVPRO of Jackson teams brings with the to the site.  As you can see in this picture, the carpet is lifted as the equipment sends air under it.  This helps the carpet dry more quickly and efficiently.   The wall is being dried with the equipment also.  This customer was very pleased with the results from our work and was surprised that we were able to work so quickly to get this job finished for them.

Storm Damage Are You Ready? SERVPRO disaster relief

It is important to be prepared for disaster to strike. Without the proper preparation, families and communities can be completely devastated. Even though local officials and relief workers will be on a scene after disaster, they may not be able to reach everyone immediately. Therefore, it is important to prepare your home for the needs of your family, your neighborhood and your community.

When preparing for emergencies it is important to remember that basic utility services such as gas, water, electricity and telephones may not be available for a period of time. It will be vital to have certain supplies to mitigate these outages.

At a minimum, keep the following items in a central location in your home. Ensure that family members are aware of the "kit" in case of an emergency. Below is a list of items to keep on hand:

  • 1 flashlight per person
  • Extra batteries
  • 1 gallon of water per day, per person
  • Car charger for cell phone
  • Non-perishable canned foods (be sure to have a non-electric can opener)
  • Utensils
  • Battery operated radio and clock
  • First-aid kit
  • Spare fuel
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Matches in a waterproof container
  • Infant supplies
  • Prescription medicine and glasses
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Sleeping bags and blankets
  • Sanitary items
  • Pet supplies
