Roof Leak

Roof Leak

SERVPRO of Midland Texas had received this call one morning after a rain storm that we had. We showed up onsite and meet with the owner and did our walk through with him. We found that he was in the middle of replacing the roof when this particular storm hit and the rain had gotten into his utility room. We checked the floor and the walls and they are wet. We had to remove the vinyl flooring in order to dry out the sub-floor. He needed this dried out over the weekend because he had people moving into this home due to them starting work for his company Monday. We placed enough air movers and a medium size dehumidifier within the room and closed the door. We achieved his goal and had it dried out with in a couple of days. 

Water Loss Containments

Water Loss Containments

The water loss occurred in Odessa Texas. The water loss was the hot water tank and it affected several rooms. To reduce the numbers of dehumidifiers that we place in a home we may place a containment up to reduce the size of the room.

Ozone after the Fire

Ozone after the Fire

Ozone after a fire has happened is the best measure to get rid of the smell of the fire. Ozone turns O2 (oxygen) into O3, which basically destroys the odor. Once this process has began though you are not allowed entry back into the house until SERVPRO of Midland has turned off the equipment and allowed it to air out for at least 30 minutes.  

Carpet Removal

Carpet Removal

After rising water has entered the home, unfortunately the best thing to due is remove the carpet completely. The contamination from outside water coming inside the home is never safe. The safest thing to do is allow SERVPRO of Midland to remove the carpet and have the contractors come in and replace the carpet with new. 

Rising Water

When rising water enters the home there is no room for error. The best solution to this problem is to perform a two or four foot flood cut on the drywall and allow us to place our air movers and dehumidifiers on the studs/framing to get it dried out and allow the contractors to place new drywall once it has finished drying out.

These vents are to help get air under the home and help keep it dried out and allow fresh air under. She was so happy that once we had completed the smell was gone. 

Mold Mitigation

Mold Mitigation

Mold mitigation can be a tricky thing. You can see it on the outside of a wall, but what could be behind the wall? If you see it on the outside of the wall there is a good chance that is has started growing on the backside of the wall also affecting the insulation as well. Before you cut that wall make sure you have the correct personal protective gear on. You will need a long sleeve shirt for the insulation, eye protection, and a N95 mask. If you feel that it might not be for you give SERVPRO of MIdland TX a call and we would be happy to come out and treat the area with our chemicals, remove the drywall and treat the area behind the wall as well.

Mold

Mold

Here are a few facts about mold:

Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.

Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
