Water Damage Carpet Catastrophe Carpet damage from water

Here's an example of a water damage job that our team got called in for this past week.  With all the flooding we've been having our client had a leak in the roof and ended up leaving it until another storm happened.  Unfortunately, their entire living room carpet had to be ripped up because the issue wasn't tended to initially.  Please never feel afraid or wait too long to call SERVPRO.  With these months of lots of rain, we don't want to make flooding more of a hassle than it already is in some peoples' homes.  We offer free estimates and our goal is to make you feel as comfortable in your home, while we get done the job as quick as possible.

Water Damage Closet in Apartment Complex Closet Water Damage

Here is an example of of a closet we got called into with water damage.  Unfortunately, due to the many storms we've been having more than one closet was ruined in various apartments.  The complex thought it would be a good idea to call us in after the facilities team tried cleaning them themselves countless times.  In hopes to save themselves time--we were told that we were the first company they thought of since we have done some water and mold remediation and damage in past.  The job took about a total of three days to air everything and complete the job in full.  Luckily, there was no mold damage this time so our team got the job done very quickly without disturbing all of the residents too much.

Water Damage Basement Disaster Water damage behind basement walls

We had a call here at SERVPRO this week for water damage in a clients' basement over the weekend.  The upstairs toilet leaked and unfortunately leaked through the entire floor.  If it wasn't enough as it was that our clients' furniture was damaged, his basement floor and walls had sever water damage as well.  He knew he wouldn't be able to take care of the issue himself, so he decided to call us right away.  Our client didn't think twice about calling us since he had used our services before when he had a fire in his kitchen upstairs.  He knew we'd be a reliable source and get the job done efficiently.  He said he will be referring us out to family and friends in the future if another problem arises.

Here is an example of a call we received about water damage done at triplex building.  There was a water leak on the third floor, which ended up seeping down and affecting the two units below it as well.  The pictures shown here are on the ground floor.  The water went through the living room, kitchen, and hallway.  Due to this affecting so many properties, it was clear to the landlord that he needed to call SERVPRO right away.  He mentioned when he spoke with us, he was overwhelmed with what had happened and was very happy he decided to call our office.  The help allowed him to put his mind at ease and know that the damage would be fixed very quickly and efficiently.

Water Damage What should I do until help arrives? A flooded basement leaving contents drifting in the water

You never expect it when a water damage wreaks havoc on your home.  The water damage clean up can be a headache so you always want to be prepared.  Here are 5 tips to help you recover quickly when a water damages your property.  1. Find the source of the water damage.  It's easy to find a faucet left running or sewer backup.  However, if water is coming from a hidden pipe in the walls you need to shut off water to the house as quickly as possible.  2. After the panic has settled down, assess the level of damage to your home.  There are some steps you can take to remove the water from your house, but if carpeting, drywall, rugs or other structural damage has occurred, call a professional water restoration company like SERVPRO of Langhorne/Bensalem immediately.  3. Move Quickly!  You need to start mitigating the damage before more damage piles up.  Bacteria and hazardous mold spores can begin to grow within hours of the catastrophe.  4.  Use a shop-vac to remove as much water as possible until the professionals show up.  The longer the water sits on the floor, the more damage it will create.  Move quickly to remove as much water as possible.  5. Take photos for your insurance claim.  Your insurance company will probably send out someone to investigate the damage, but if you have pictures that show everything as it happened, it could smooth out the claims process.  Of course, the best kind of water damage is the one that never happens, but if you do ever find yourself in need, the professionals at SERVPRO of Langhorne/Bensalem are here to help you 24/7.
