Storm Causes Drain Overflow in Basement, Berkley, MI

Storm Causes Drain Overflow in Basement, Berkley, MI

Heavy rainfall caused the floor drains in this basement to overflow and left what we call Category 3 waste to clean, disinfect, and to protect. It is important to clean up a Category 3 (grossly contaminated) damage site ASAP to protect those in the home from adverse health effects. This customer was very pleased with our work as well as the short time it took for us to get on site and complete the demo and set up our equipment.

Current Mold Remediation in Southern Michigan

Current Mold Remediation in Southern Michigan

This is a customer's summer home. At some point during the winter months when the home is unoccupied, the upstairs shower had a pipe leak/rupture that continued for quite some time. Due to the massive amount of water throughout the home as well as the extreme moisture cause the perfect conditions for microbial growth. The water sat untouched in the home for an undetermined amount of time, allowing for mold to grow on virtually every surface in this house. SERVPRO of Oak Park/Ferndale has just begun the mold remediation of this home. Due to the extent of the microbial growth, this will be a complete tear-out. Please stay tuned for the after photos of this mold remediation, to be posted next week, sometime after 06/19/2017.

This is the before and after photo of the lab in a dentist office SERVPRO of Oak Park/Ferndale performed water mitigation services on. The hot water tank failed and caused significant water damage to multiple room, including this one. It seems that it happened while the office was closed for the weekend and the water sat for some time. The cabinet was saturated with water as well as the drywall. It was also discovered that the tank had been leaking prior to this and microbial growth was found under this cabinet as well. As the mitigation team, we remove only the affected, destroyed items, then set drying equipment on the rest. Once everything is demoed and dried, our equipment is removed and the recon team comes in to put everything back together, "Like it never even happened."
