Flooding and water damage is very invasive. Water quickly spreads throughout your home and gets absorbed into floors, walls, furniture, and more.  SERVPRO of Vincennes arrives quickly and starts the water extraction process almost immediately. This immediate response helps to minimize the damage and the cleaning and restoration costs. We promise you, we can get there fastest. But not only that...our work is the highest quality in Vincennes Indiana. 

Have you ever wondered what a Water Damage Timeline might look like...Check this out below:

           Within Minutes

  • Water quickly spreads throughout your property, saturating everything in its path.

  • Water is absorbed into walls, floors, upholstery, and belongings.

  • Furniture finishes may bleed, causing permanent staining on carpets.

  • Photographs, books, and other paper goods start to swell and warp.

    Hours 1 - 24:

  • Drywall begins to swell and break down.

  • Metal surfaces begin to tarnish.

  • Furniture begins to swell and crack.

  • Dyes and inks from cloth and paper goods spread and stain.

  • A musty odor appears.

    48 Hours to 1 Week:

  • Metal begins to rust and corrode.

  • Furniture warps and shows signs of mold.

  • Paint begins to blister.

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. 

At SERVPRO of Vincennes we pride ourselves on being consistent in our work and helping business and home owners during this time.

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 

Water Stains on your ceiling? SERVPRO of Vincennes can help.

1/5/2020 (Permalink)

Do you have a Water Stain on your Ceiling? 

Trying to sell your house and potential buyers notice a water stain on your ceiling? Not good for a house sale. OR trying to buy a house and notice water stain on the basement ceiling..you run fast. Did you know SERVPRO of Vincennes can help you..

The mark or spot is a visible mark of water damage in your home, which before you try..it can not be remedied with a simple coat of paint, as doing so can facilitate the growth of mold or mildew. Water stains should instead be repaired immediately in order to avoid further damage to ceilings. So STOP and call a professional like SERVPRO of Vincennes before you try to become a youtube expert. 

Let's get to the root of the problem..what are some Common Causes of this?

  1. Clogged gutters.
    • Full or clogged gutters are the likely culprit if you’ve experienced heavy or persistent rain.
  2. Leaky pipes.
    • They could run from a bathroom, air conditioner, refrigerator, or dishwasher if one is located in the room above the stained ceiling. 
  3. Caulking issue.
    • If the caulking that surrounds your bathtub or shower deteriorates, water can leak down into the ceiling below. 

Let us help, do yourself a favor and call a professional like SERVPRO of Vincennes

Has your Toilet Overflowed or do you have Sewage Back up?

12/5/2019 (Permalink)

Sewage backup YUCK! We know this can be one of the worst things. Did you know that this would be considered category 3 water? We bet you didn't know that there are different types of water damage.....what kind of water is lurking in your basement? Check out the different types below!

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. Examples include flooding from rivers or stream, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

If you walk down your basement stairs to find inches of water on the ground, you will be happy to have our phone number. Most people aren't prepared for their basement to flood.

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

My Floor is Covered in Water....HELP!!

3/1/2019 (Permalink)

Nobody ever anticipates water damage. We all think "that won't happen to me." But unfortunately it's actually pretty common. 

It may have started out as innocent bath time playfulness, an accidental spill or small leak. Suddenly, you are surrounded by water on the floor, moving towards walls, crevices, and other access points to reach the lowest level of their home.

You reach for the towels, wet vac, mops and fans to clean up the water and the phone to contact you. You clean up the surface water and believe everything will be okay and the problem is solved. Or, is it? What happened to the water that traveled into the floor, subfloors and walls? Was all the moisture caused by the incident removed? Water intrusion in a home can leave subtle, yet lasting effects if not completely removed from the structure. Removing standing water with appropriate precautions can prevent further damage. But, who removes water and moisture in the flooring and walls of your home?

We do. SERVPRO of Vincennes is here to help you. Let us take care of your problem.

State Farm Insurance

The festive tree and beautiful paint colors make this office so warm and welcoming. As soon as you walk in the door, there are four friendly faces: Tammy, Kim, Tracy, and Jordan. I can always tell that this is a tight-knit office that values family. The late Kelly Jones opened the original office in 2003; he will always be missed. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Kim and Tracy to talk about their office and a few of their favorite things. Kim and Tracy are both busy mothers balancing work life and home life. You can tell they do both very well.

State Farm offers auto, home, life, and health insurance, as well as a full line bank.

What is your favorite music?

Tracy: Pop

Kim: Country

Where are you most likely to order lunch from?

“That is so hard because we have debates every day. Bobes or Dots are usually our main two.” –Tracy

What is one of your favorite things about Knox County?

Both Kim and Tracy agreed that the small town atmosphere is what they love the most.

Do you have a favorite festival or event in the area?

“Definitely (Lincoln) homecoming!” –Tracy

As an insurance company, what are you most proud of?

“Customer service.” –Kim

What is one thing that many people don’t know about your office?

“A lot of people don’t know that we have a bank.” -Kim

It may have started out as innocent bath time playfulness, an accidental spill or small leak. Suddenly, you are surrounded by water on the floor, moving towards walls, crevices, and other access points to reach the lowest level of their home.

You reach for the towels, wet vac, mops and fans to clean up the water and the phone to contact you. You clean up the surface water and believe everything will be okay and the problem is solved. Or, is it? What happened to the water that traveled into the floor, subfloors and walls? Was all the moisture caused by the incident removed? Water intrusion in a home can leave subtle, yet lasting effects if not completely removed from the structure. Removing standing water with appropriate precautions can prevent further damage. But, who removes water and moisture in the flooring and walls of your home?

We do. SERVPRO of Vincennes is here to help you. Let us take care of your problem.

 A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more
