A containment on a walkway to contain smoke-related damage in.

Containments are the TRUE Hero!

When our team sets up a containment while on a job affected by fire, it directs the airflow from the air movers to the affected areas. The contaminant encapsulates any debris that comes off a surface and keeps it in the affected area, which helps speed the process up. We mainly use containment to remove the chance of smoke damage to unaffected areas. We use this on multiple jobs types; for example, we use containment for water-related damage. It is used to control where the air is flowing to, which, when appropriately directed, allows the drying speed to decrease. 

The Attic in business after the roof was struck by Lighting

Lighting Strikes Your Business, We Will Strike Back!

After being struck by lighting, this business had a large amount of secondary created by the water seeping into the structure's attic. This causes the likelihood of microbial growth as the moisture and the ideal temperatures make the perfect environment for mold to spread in. Another problem that was critical in this case was the removal of insulation. When insulation gets wet, it decreases the efficiency, with the only solution is to remove the remaining insulation.  

Manufacturing Facility Covered with Mud and Water

No Large Loss Job Too Big

We were called in to help a manufacturing facility after a pipe had ruptured, sending water and mud all over the floors. Our team worked alongside the companies employees to help expedite the duration of the project to ensure the company could reopen as soon as possible. This project took all hands on deck to complete, but it showed our commercial clients that no project was too big to intimidate our crew. Our team of professionals is ready for anything, whether a pipe bursting or a complete demo. Our team has the expertise to handle any of your project’s needs.

Equipment Set-Up

Software Says Two Air Movers!

Pipe leak affected carpet flooring on the 2nd-floor hallway, master bedroom, and master closet. The homeowner had already removed carpet and pad from the master bedroom closet, so, in that room, they had to dry the subfloor. Pictures are taken every day that our technicians are on the job site arrive on the job site. Our Project Manager went in to do a visual assessment and, after entering all the notes into our proprietary software, which shows us the total number of equipment pieces we need and where we should place them. This software is easy to use, and it provides a straightforward explanation of what needs to get done. This is critical as then our project manager will then tell the technicians who perform the labor the steps to take and how much of each equipment they will need.

The Importance of Acting Fast

This home is an excellent example of how primary damage can escalate rapidly, causing secondary damage. When we talk about the importance of acting fast to prevent the escalation of secondary damage, we mean. This home had roof damage caused by a massive storm that made it easy for water to seep in. The instance of water seeping in mixed with the warm heat of summer created the perfect conditions for microbial growth. This is why we had to use a containment between the upstairs and downstairs out of safety for the homeowners.

Although we might be in different places, we will always be willing to help out another SERVPRO outside our region. That is what separates SERVPRO from our competitors, which is our drive to be one giant team.
