Flooded Basement

Flooded Basement

This is a picture of a bathroom in a basement that was flooded in Madison Wisconsin.  In the picture, you can see just how high the water traveled.  When flood waters enter your home or business, it also carries whatever was outside!  When you have water in your basement, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Northbrook/Wheeling/Glencoe to come help you out!

Extensive mold damage

Extensive mold damage

After a fire occurred in the unit above this one, firefighters put the fire out using water and flooded the unit from above.  Once the water sits for a few days with no access to dehumidification and airflow, this is the result.  Unfortunately, we had to remove the cabinets to get access to the mold.  When it was all said and done, it was "like it never even happened".

This was the scene of a fire that occurred in a second floor bedroom.  Please be careful lighting candles in your home, because they can become a problem very quickly!  We were tasked with cleaning, sanitizing, and removing the odor from this room.  Below this, water had traveled down in the first floor bedroom and caused extensive damage.  When you have a fire, call the professionals here at SERVPRO of Northbrook/Wheeling/Glencoe at (847)498-8889!

After the recent storms passed through Madison, SERVPRO of Northbrook/Wheeling/Glencoe was sent up to help the local communities.  This was the scene after the storm passed at a Childrens museum.  It is hard to tell in the picture, but there was over ten feet of water in the basement!  We had no idea what was in the basement until we had pumped everything out, which took about two days!  There is no job too big or small for SERVPRO of Northbrook/Wheeling/Glencoe, and we were so happy to have the opportunity to help our neighbors up in Wisconsin!

Doing things the right way!

Whenever our crews are working with mold, they are required to suit up and wear masks.  Proper protective equipment is so important in our industry.  Not only do they wear masks, but they also wear suits, so they dont take mold with them after the job is complete!

Mold in between floors

After this customer noticed a slow leak in their living room ceiling, they had a contractor open the ceiling to find an abundant amount of mold between her unit and the unit above.  Slow leaks like this provide a suitable home for mold to settle in.

When it rains, it pours!  At this home in Park Ridge, they had a sump pump that could not keep up with the amount of water that was being pushed into it.  Unfortunately, when this happens, the water will come back into the basement, and the crews need to pump it back outside!  Crews responded quickly on a Sunday to get this water out of the basement.

Water Damage in Commercial Buildings

Water Damage in Commercial Buildings

Some of the worst water damages can happen in commercial buildings.  When a pipe burst in this commercial building, crews had to react quickly to clean the mess up.  The drywall seen in this picture had fallen on its own and crews had to remove more after.  Once the drywall was removed, crews had to extract the water from the carpet and set up drying equipment.

Improper Drying Can Cause Mold

Improper Drying Can Cause Mold

After you experience a water damage to your home or business, it is imperative that you react quickly and efficiently to dry the area.  If building materials or contents do not dry quickly, then mold can develop and cause an even bigger issue than the water damage itself!

Check your Attic!

Check your Attic!

Mold can thrive in attics!  Especially when the attic is not up to code.  If you notice that your vents are not venting outside, fix it as soon as possible!  The moist air from these vents will pump into the attic, causing favorable conditions for mold to develop.

Mold loves attics!

Mold loves attics!

Mold loves to be in damp, dark places.  An attic can be a perfect place for mold to thrive.  You should periodically check your attic for any signs of mold, it is much less expensive if you catch it early!

If you live in a multi unit residence, always look up before going to bed at night!  Water damages can happen at any time, without warning.  Drywall can be heavy, especially when it is soaked with water.  This condo owner was lucky she was not sleeping when this occurred!

Hoarding

Hoarding can be a big issue, especially if you have a water damage!  When we experience these losses, you have to deal with the water damage, but first, you have to deal with all the contents in the way of making progress.  It is a very delicate process, but we have mastered it at SERVPRO.
