Floor Damage During Storm Event

Basement Floor Damaged and SERVPRO Helps

A home in Helenville, WI that had a flood in their basement had water enter in from their exposed entrance.  They also had a secondary kitchen with hardwood floors that get wet.  SERVPRO was called to inspect.  This picture shows the "cupping" of the floor.  Even though SERVPRO has the equipment to dry hardwood floor, this flooring was beyond repair and had to be removed.  SERVPRO's technicians have the training and experience to help determine if and when materials can be salvaged or not.  In this case, the charge and cost to the customer to try and save this floor would not be worth it.  The technicians at were able to remove the hardwood floor safely and efficiently in order to dry the structure so replacement floor could be installed.

SERVPRO Equipment Used on Storm Job

SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County is Prepared for Large Water Jobs

SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County was called out to this property in Brookfield, WI because heavy rain from a storm caused water to back up into the basement.  This was not a small job.  The entire partially finished basement was filled with water.  This job required many different types and pieces of equipment.  

The water needs a place to drain and since there was no floor drain close to the dehumidifiers, we needed to use a water receptacle, a shelf to stack the equipment, axial fans to concentrate air straight down and standard fans to concentrate air across the floor.  This particular structure was dry within 4 days.

If a water intrusion penetrates into your home or business, call the certified professionals at SERVPRO SW Waukesha County.  When you call 262-542-0900 you will speak with a SERVPRO employee who will begin the process of making it "Like it never even happened."

Hoarder Cleanup

SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County Cleans and Deoorizes Beanie Babies

The certified fire & smoke restoration technicians at SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County are ready to handle any challenge.  This tenant of a Milwaukee, WI apartment complex had a neighbor where a fire occurred after lightning struck during a storm.  Luckily this customer only had smoke and soot damage.  This fire required the technicians at SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County to clean and deodorize a collection of 7,500 Beanie Babies.  Because this collection included the little paper heart-shaped tag attached to each toy, it required that each piece be hand-cleaned without the use of water.  It took the fire and smoke restoration technicians at SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County about two months to complete, but not one toy smelled of smoke when we were done.
