Meeting room with table and chairs and water on the floor When water damage strikes in your commercial building call SERVPRO to make it "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO of Vincennes recently received a call from a senior living community who had experienced major water damage due to their roof being trapped incorrectly. 

Within the hour crews were at the building starting to extract water and demo out the affected area. It took three days to fully extract, demo and dry all of the affected areas. The directors of the facility were so pleased with the turn around time and the how hard the crews worked everyday.

However, flash forward two weeks and 3 inches of rain later and SERVPRO of Vincennes received another call for water damage due to their roof still leaking. Within the hour crews were at the building starting to extract water and demo out the affected area.

Toilet Overflow?

10/19/2019 (Permalink)

If we were in a classroom setting we would ask everyone to raise their hands if they knew if there were different types of water during a water damage. From our experience, most people wouldn't know that there are three types of water. 

Water damage can be classified by the three types of contaminated water. A SERVPRO of Vincennes professional will inspect your home or business to determine the appropriate plan of action for the type of water encountered.

Category 1: "Clean Water"

Category 1 water is from a clean source like a broken water supply line or leaking faucet. If not treated quickly, this water can turn into category 2 or 3, depending on the length of time, temperature, and contact with surrounding contaminants.

Category 2: "Gray Water"

Category 2 water is contaminated and could cause discomfort or illness. Examples include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

Category 3: "Black Water"

Category 3 water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and any contact should be avoided.

If you ever have any questions about different types of water give us a call today. We are happy to educate the community on what we specialize in.

Timing is Everything with Damage

Did you know that timing is everything when it comes to fire, water, and storm damage. The quicker you can get the problem addressed, the less damage there is going to be. period.

Water leaks within a business can seep into flooring, carpets, baseboards and walls while moving throughout the structure, potentially creating mildew and staining walls. This might seem like a slow damage, but it can cause some of the most expensive damage.

Why SERVPRO? We Can Handle Any Size Disaster- Part 1

10/8/2019 (Permalink)

We are here to help you no matter the size of the disaster...from needing your carpet cleaned to a home that has been flooded. We want to serve you. Unfortunately here in Vincennes, flooding could occur from the Wabash river. That is particularly important for carpets. After they become soaked, the glue holding the layers together weakens significantly, and delamination, or separation of the layers, can occur. Our crews here at SERVPRO of Vincennes know to carefully monitor all three components to prevent tearing carpets apart, as well as overheating the already damaged wood floorboards, cracking and splintering them.

After completing water removal, our technician then lift the carpets, remove the carpet pad, and dry the floor using air movers and fans to force warm air over and under the carpet while also drawing out the damp air and sending it outside the nearest window or another exit. Once completed, they insert a new pad and then stretch the carpet back in place.

Water damage can occur if just a few inches of water are lurking on your floor, but say a huge flood comes though town..there is a high chance that mold will occur. Check out our next blog titled Why SERVPRO? We Can Handle Any Size Disaster-Part 2
