Resident's crawlspace flooding

Resident's crawlspace flooding

A resident called into SERVPRO concerning water damage. The water line between the house and the city hook up broke during the night causing flooding in the resident's crawlspace. Once the water was shut off, 2 inches of water was left standing at the base of the crawl space. One of our crews came out to extract the water immediately to avoid any other complications.

Bagel Shop Glass Disaster

Bagel Shop Glass Disaster

The Property Manager of this commercial property contacted us after a car drove through the buildings front window scattering glass everywhere. SERVPRO was contacted to come to clean up all the glass and debris from the car collision. Table and Chairs were removed from the area and cleaned. Once the area was cleared of chairs, table and large pieces of debris, the rest was swept up with brooms and dustpans, moved to supplied dumpsters and vacuumed leaving no glass and debris behind. After 90 minutes the designated area was clear of all glass and debris and SERVPRO finished the job.

Tar Footprint Carpet Stain

Tar Footprint Carpet Stain

A customer walking into a carpeted Community Building with tar and road asphalt on their boots caused heavy soiled footprints in the front office. After a production tech scrubbed the spots with a solution they began to lighten but the footprints were still present. The crew lead then tried our product "Miracle Worker", after letting it set on the prints for a few minutes he then used hot steam to lift the stain. The spots were no longer on the carpet. The Office Manager of the Community Building was very pleased, and in disbelief that SERVPRO could remove the footprint stains.

Winter Storms Bring Frozen Pipes

Winter Storms Bring Frozen Pipes

The winter of 2018 was one to remember. Many thought it might never end! With certain areas of Central Illinois reaching lows of -15, old man winter let us have it. Extended periods of sub zero temperatures bring on the dreaded frozen pipes. We have learned to adapt to the cold weather temperatures in most cases. Unfortunately for this assisted living facility, the main water line for the sprinkler system, located on an exterior wall froze and broke. Within a matter of 48 hours, SERVPRO was able to have the residents back into their respective rooms.

Emmanuel Episcopal Church Attic Fire

Emmanuel Episcopal Church Attic Fire

There's never a convenient time for anyone to have a fire, especially with events planned 72 hours after the blaze started. Emmanuel Episcopal Church trusted us in cleaning and deodorizing the main portion of the church after the rectory was scorched, and then doused with the proper amount of water to extinguish the roaring fire. In record time, SERVPRO was able to finish what we needed to do and the Church was able to have their service later that week.

Microwave Fire in Mahomet

Microwave Fire in Mahomet

This is the aftermath of a fire that could have engulfed the whole house if it wasn't for our brave men and women working at the Cornbelt Fire Protection District in Mahomet. 

Smokewebs

Smokewebs

This isn't your typical Halloween decoration. In fact, these are not made from cobwebs at all. Smoke webs occur when the ionization process of burning synthetic materials (rubber, plastics etc.) create charged particles that tend to cling to certain surfaces. These charged particles will attract to themselves repeatedly and form "chains" of soot. Smoke webs are especially common in low heat or smoldering fires which produce "wet smoke." The webs are common in stagnant air spaces such as the corners and edges of ceilings or cabinets.  Soot from synthetic materials is tacky, pungent, and smears very easily with conventional cleaning products. Our Production Staff uses professional grade chemicals specifically designed for smoke and soot produced by any material. No matter how big of a fire damage, you should always contact your local SERVPRO. We'll make it "Like it never even happened."

Water Damage in Champaign (After Tear Out)

Water Damage in Champaign (After Tear Out)

The water damage on this house was extensive. Unfortunately the homeowners do not know how long the water had been running, as they have not been on the property in a while. Due to the saturation levels of most of the walls, they had to be torn out instead of dried. The structural integrity and the chance of secondary growth posed too big of a threat within the time period we had to work with to get the walls dried. Our knowledgeable crew, experienced Crew Leads, and IICRC certified Production Managers are always prepared to handle any disaster. When water strikes, so do we. That's why you should always call SERVPRO in the event of any loss.

Gifford Tornado Aftermath

Gifford Tornado Aftermath

This is the devastation after the Gifford tornado which struck in November 2013. Within the days to follow, SERVPRO crews packed up, stored and cleaned contents from 10 different households. The owner of this house said over and over, "I couldn't have gotten through this without SERVPRO by my side."

A Perfect Combination - Experience and Equipment!

A Perfect Combination - Experience and Equipment!

The goal of the air scrubbers is to clean or “scrub” and re-circulate the air. This allows us to remove the airborne contaminants that are found within the work area. In combination with the carpet drying fans that function as an accelerated way to dry almost any surface, this is a perfect recipe for water mitigation!

Fire Damage Restoration With Soda Blasting

Fire Damage Restoration With Soda Blasting

Soda blasting is the use of bicarbonate of soda, also known as baking soda, in conjunction with compressed air for the removal of fire damage, smoke damage, mold damage caused by water damage, or any other coating. The process is abrasive, but relatively gentle, and can be used on virtually any surface. As well as being surface friendly, soda blasting is environmentally friendly, it is an eco-friendly, nontoxic and nonhazardous alternative to other cleaning and stripping methods.

Additionally, soda blasting leaves a thin film of white powder dust on the surface being cleaned that helps to inhibit the formation of rust on metal for several months after treatment.
