Secondary Damage

This photo shows the after affects of a fire loss. The room pictured is located upstairs while the fire occurred downstairs. Although the room was not directly affected, the soot traveled through the home and coated the other areas. That is why it is so important to clean the entire home, including the HVAC system, after a fire.

Flooding: The After Effects

After flood waters have receded (or been pumped out) debris such as what is pictured in the photo is left behind. Sand, dirt, and other outside contaminants pile up on the floor, leaving an even bigger mess to clean. While this does not necessarily cause further damage, it definitely adds to the stress all of our storm loss customers feel.

PPE

Personal Protective Equipment is a vital tool we use on job sites that are affected with hazardous material. This particular job was a sewage backup that affected multiple rooms in the home. Due to the contamination of the water, our guys suited up during the extraction and demolition portions of the work. At multiple points in the job they also applied an antimicrobial solution to sanitize the areas and help prevent spreading the contaminants to other parts of the home, to our vehicles, or any where else.

Another day, another kitchen fire

SERVPRO of Lake County is no stranger to fire jobs. In the last few months, we have worked on 7 fires! The severity of the fires ranged from light soot and smoke damage to complete interior demolition and renovation of the affected structure. 

Fire damaged kitchen cabinets

Smoke, soot, and char. Oh my!

Ever heard the saying "if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen"? The fire in this home originated in the living room, but the whole house was severely damaged after the frayed extension cord caught on fire. Luckily, no one was inside! You can see the extent of the smoke and soot damage on the cabinets as well as the living room wall in the background. On this particular job, the ceilings and some of the walls were removed. They were too damaged to be repaired. By the time our crews are finished, this home will practically be brand new- the exterior structure will remain but the drywall, flooring, and fixtures will be new.

Roof Leak

This customer experienced a roof leak, which damaged the ceiling, walls, and floor below. Once onsite, our crew extracted the water from the floor, removed the affected ceiling, and placed drying equipment. Removing non-salvageable materials such as the ceiling helps the overall drying process go faster. Materials that cannot be saved, if left in place, inhibit the drying process and can actually case more damage. SERVPRO of Lake County techs are trained to know when to remove materials and when to use in-place drying methods. The IICRC has set the industry standards and we follow those to ensure the quality of each job we oversee.

Flood Hazard

In our great state of Florida, it is common for people to live on or near a body of water. During periods of heavy rain, flooding chances increase drastically if you property is "water front." While this may make for good fishing and wake boarding, it is not so great for our homes and businesses. If your water front property floods, please give us a call. We are happy to help!

This customer experienced a water damage during a hurricane. You can see where the water intruded from the roof and ran own the walls leaving a discolored trail in its wake.

Standing Water

This corridor was flooded just before a grand opening. SERVPRO of Lake County was on the spot, extracting water and setting equipment to dry the affected structure. Our quick response limited the damage and helped get this grand opening back on track, only delaying the ceremony by a week.

Yikes!

This customer experienced a sewage backup that affected half the building. We extracted the standing water and sanitized the building. The customer was grateful for our quick response to limit further damage.

Standing water on the floor of an electrical room

Electrified

Water and electricity don't mix! Our crew had to carefully test the water for conductivity before extracting this standing water from the mechanical room of this commercial loss. If you find yourself in a similar situation, please call a professional. Attempting to mop up the water yourself could result in a tragic accident.

Here you can see one of our techs moving a couch out of an apartment after a hurricane devastated the unit. Due to mold in the home, our crews donned personal protective equipment including gloves, body suits, and respirators.

Hurricane Damage

Hurricane Matthew badly damaged this customers entire home. There was water damage from the ceiling to the floors. Our crew was onsite for just about a month to dry the home and remove all the damaged drywall. We are so humbled to be able to help folks in the wake of a natural disaster. We understand the severity of the situation and do our best to alleviate some of the stress and worry that come with emergencies.

Got Growth?

Do you regularly check and maintain your HVAC system? The customer in this photo did not and the system was covered in growth. Living in Florida, it is extremely important to make sure you take care of your HVAC system to keep it performing at its best. It is especially important for our seasonal residents to ensure their unit is working properly so a problem doesn't arise while they are away from the home. We offer duct cleaning services from a licensed HVAC professional. If you would like us to inspect your system to check for growth, give us a call!

Large Commercial Water Loss

Dave is our lead water technician. You can see him here, standing in front of a large commercial water loss. The emergency call came in just before closing time on a Wednesday. Almost 5000 square feet of the business was flooded and covered in debris where the ceiling had collapsed. Dave and his crew jumped in their trucks and headed out to the loss site where they spent a good portion of the night extracting standing water and removing ceiling debris. Thanks to the quick response and hard work of the team, the damage was minimized and business was able to resume in just a few days.

Mold Remediation in a commercial building

Our team was part of this mold remediation at a commercial facility. The customer was in the middle of a remodel when growth was discovered. SERVPRO of Lake County was called to save the day! The crew worked tirelessly to mitigate all growth to help this remodel get back on track. In this photo, two of our team members are busy hepa vacuuming one of the affected rooms after the demolition was complete. Hepa vacuuming is a great tool for growth jobs because it helps eliminate dust and growth particles from the air and surfaces. Demolition is dirty work and Hepa vacuuming helps to cut down on the cleaning time.

Containment

This is a common site on a growth job- the plastic keeps affected air and materials inside the affected area. The red zippers allow entry. The green piece of equipment is an air filtration device that sets negative pressure in the room. This keeps the bad air and particulate from spreading into the unaffected parts of the structure.
