Home Water Damage From a Storm

Home Water Damage From a Storm

This homeowner suffered water damage from a rain storm. The rain came down so fast and quick that it flooded their home. 

Overwhelmed, they called SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/Outer Banks to help them clean and make it "Like it never even happened."

Basement Flooding After a Storm

Basement Flooding After a Storm

Tropical storm winds and rain can cause water surges that can flood your Hampton yard.  During a storm, a client gets over 10" of standing water in their yard that ended up in their basement.  The sump pump does it job, but the basement needs to be professionally dried and treated.

Mold Found Under Bath Tile

Mold Found Under Bath Tile

A little water can go a long way.  A trickle can seep under tile and wood floors.  The longer a drip continues,  the more damage as time and temperatures can cause mold to grow at excessive rates.

Office Bathroom Flood

Office Bathroom Flood

A multi-level office building bathroom toilet overflowed causing category 3 water damage to the bathroom, hallways, and offices.  The SERVPRO team was able to restore the building to sanitary conditions quickly and efficiently.

Business Interruption From Flooding

Business Interruption From Flooding

There is never a convenient time for fire or water damage to strike your business.  Every hour spent cleaning can mean an hour of lost revenue and productivity.  A good plan is to ensure that you have your SERVPRO Business Emergency Ready Plan App with your business information at your fingertips.  

Mold Found in Portable Trailer

A city's portable training room had been closed up and when it was reopened, mold was found throughout the unit.   Mold was found in the air system too.

Besides causing a major business interruption, a mold problem can present a serious health risk for people exposed at your commercial property.

SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/Outer Banks works quickly to first contain the infestation to prevent its spreading to other parts of the structure and to work safely and effectively to manage the situation.

Grease Fire in Your Elizabeth City/Outer Banks  Kitchen

An unattended pan on the stove caught fire and ignited other surrounding materials which caused a kitchen fire to erupt in this home.

After any fire damage situation, your primary focus should be safety first:

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

Extracting Water

Extracting Water

This is our extractor that will remove most of the water from the carpet.  It's similar to laundry, where the spin cycle removes most of the dampness from your clothes. 

Next you will move the clothes to the dryer to dry.  After the extractor, we will implement our drying equipment, dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the rest of the moisture.  

Mushrooms Grow From Contaminated Water

Mushrooms Grow From Contaminated Water

Water damage is never easy to deal with and even worse when the water is from a toilet or sewer backup.

The homeowner wanted to avoid a weekend emergency call only to discover these mushrooms growing two days later from the ceiling.  

The water is what we call "Black Water", a category 3, very contaminated and an immediate health hazard.  Sewage backup should be considered an emergency and dealt with as soon as possible.  You should never try to clean it up yourself.

In this room, you notice that the ceiling and window framework is exposed and the walls are covered. 

This is the structural restoration process to help get this home to its pre-fire condition.  Restoration may involve minor repairs such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet, or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of a room or rooms in the home or business.

The fire damage restoration process begins after you call SERVPRO of Hampton North. 

We carefully inspect and test the adjoining rooms to determine the extent of the fire damage and make preparations to protect the property against any further damage.

After the fire trucks have left, your Hampton home or business is likely suffering from not only fire and smoke damage but extensive water damage from the firefighters efforts.

The fire damage restoration process begins almost immediately following a fire once we receive the emergency call. 

In this photo, you notice one of our dehumidifier machines that is pulling out the remaining moisture in this particular room while the structural restoration is taking place.    The "DeHu" as we like to call it and air movers are used to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.

Commercial Air Duct Cleaning

Commercial Air Duct Cleaning

When something is out of sight, it's normally out of mind too.  It's usually a certain smell or excessive dust, or even stuffy sinuses that may signal that there is something affecting your business indoor air quality.

At SERVPRO Elizabeth City and the Outer Banks, we provide commercial air duct cleaning services along with a Free Inspection and quote of your air duct system.

However, duct cleaning is not always necessary. We will make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your system.
