You Call SERVPRO After a Fire...What's Next?

5/21/2020 (Permalink)

Every fire call we receive is typically different from the last one or the next one. Most likely because homes and offices are all different and fires are their own beast. But our process is very similar. Our quality of work is always the highest and our team is always giving it their all. They are always the heroes are the end of the job doing their best to make it "Like it never even happened."

The restoration process begins when you call the SERVPRO National Call Center, which staffed 24 hours a day. Our representative will ask a series of questions regarding the fire damage event and dispatch you to the correct contact.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

Our team will carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, our SERVPRO team can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)


The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. They will then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from all Surfaces

Our team uses specialized equipment and techniques to remove soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water in your Basement or Business..Again

5/21/2020 (Permalink)

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. Did you know roofs can be tarped the WRONG way...they can. SERVPRO of Vincennes can tarp your roof too...#HereToHelp

We pride ourselves on being the fastest to any size disaster:

Within the hour crews were at the building starting to extract water and demo out the affected area. The quicker we get a phone call about damage, the quicker we can get there which will save you money! 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. Our team is so appreciative of the praise they receive and we are always proud of them!

Water Damage can and sometimes WILL repeat itself:

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.

Unfortunately garage fires often lead to house fire, whether the garage is attached or not. Check out some of the tips below. We know not all fires are preventable, but we hope these are helpful to possibly prevent a garage fire! 

  1. Electrical Complications
    • Faulty Circuits
    • Overloaded Outlets
  2. Flammable Liquids (Can spark)
    • Gasoline
    • Paint
    • Paint thinner
    • oil 
  3. Propane Tanks

We've Had Water in our Basement too...We Understand

1/10/2020 (Permalink)

We moved into our new home and within weeks were faced with a flooded basement ...a flooded finished basement I might add. 

All I could think was "we own a SERVPRO, we know all that we should and shouldn't do...how did this happen to us?" 

If you have ever had water in your basement or home, you know that it happens while you are on vacation, before you leave for vacation, or when you are hosting a house full of people. It never fails, it is always one of those scenarios. Leaving you with a huge mess on top of a hectic schedule already.  

We've always known that our SERVPRO of Vincennes team was the very best. But after our flooded basement situation I know first hand how amazing our team is. They took care of everything. I was so grateful to have a team full of green water restoration professionals taking care of our flooded basement. We are thankful to have escaped any other water damages, but I know if we do...we will be in great hands with SERVPRO of Vincennes
