Frozen water leaking from a home.

A kitchen being repainted

Painting all surfaces.

This renovation was the result of what is known as a “Puff Back.” A puff back occurs when your oil or gas burner backfires and shoots smoke and soot into your home or business. Puff backs can cause anything from minor inconvenience to severe damage to your property and heating system. They are easily avoidable with regular maintenance.

Soot covered room.

Soot and Smoke Damage in Hammond WI.

This was the result of a smoldering piece of equipment in a commercial building in Hammond, WI. When we arrived, we found that it had covered the entire work floor space. There was significant build up because the piece of equipment that was smoldering, did so for hours. We used our resources and team up with another SERVPRO to wipe, clean, and ready the equipment with in a short amount of time. We make disasters “Like it never even happened.”

Cleaned wall

Soot Damaged Wall

This incident of soot damage was caused by a fire in Siren, WI. The left side of the picture is after the wall had been sprayed down, scrubbed, and wiped clean. Unfortunately, when it comes to fire, soot can contaminate a much larger area than the fire consumed so special precautions have to be taken for soot and odor control.

A burned out room.

Electrical Fire Oakdale, MN

This unfortunate electrical fire was of a 1940’s style home. It occurred in a junction box in one room. The second floor needed to be demoed, packed out, sealed and deodorized. While the first floor needed a complete wall to wall, floor to ceiling clean. Fortunately, there was no loss of life. The client is thankful to the swift response of the Fire Department.

A bedroom with air movers set up

Laundry Room Leak

This loss was the cause of a washing machine supply line water leak through a hard wood floor from the level above in Hudson, WI. There was significant damage to the ceiling and walls on the floor below to warrant the removal of the ceiling to the studs. This was a returning customer and they were pleased with the work. With the removal of the flooring upstairs with the removal of the ceiling and portions of the wall mixed with the drying process we were quickly able to get this project ready for reconstruction. We make disasters "Like it never even happened."

Bathroom destroyed by fire

Bathroom Fire, Rosemount, MN

This was an unfortunate even of an unattended candle, but thanks to the quick-thinking efforts of the St Croix Sheriffs Department and a Stat X (Fire Suppression) Grenade, water damage occurring from attempts to put the fire out and smoke and soot damage around the rest of the home was kept to a minimum. The after picture is shown ready for reconstruction with all amenities removed.

Moisture through roof

Winter Snow Has to Go Somewhere When It Melts

Equipment Drying Out Walls

Drying Exterior Walls

Heavy rains over an extended number of days saturates the ground.  Once the water has nowhere else to flow your basement is the next best option.  For areas that are unfinished, our techs can dry the area, and perform a hard service cleaning using steam.  For areas that are finished our techs try to salvage as much of the material as possible to help mitigate the cost of repairs. 

Hole Cut In Celing

Water Coming Through Ceiling

With the snow and ice comes the threat of ice dam build ups.  When gutters become full of ice the water has nowhere else to go.  The water then backs up, and then makes its way into the house.  Coming through the walls and the ceiling.  Which can cause extensive damage. 

Wall Flood Cut

Flood Cuts

With the sudden warm up and heavy rains this springs the snow pack had nowhere to go besides the basements of many area homeowners.  Wide spread flooding kept our techs busy.  Here’s an image of a water line cut.  Stopping the spread of the water damage to the framing and drywall.  Helping to save our clients in repair costs. 

Wet Floor

Wet Floor From Fire After Lightning Strike

When the unexpected hits our techs are on the scene.  No one expects lightning to hit their home during a storm, or to ignite the gas line in their home.  Luckily no one was hurt during the fire, and the firefighters were able to minimize the fire damage.  However, the water that was used to put out the fire ran through the house and into the basement.  Our techs were able to clean up the smoke damaged belongings and dry out the water damage. 

Air Dryers Pointed At Wall

Drying An Exterior Wall.

Hudson: Our goal is to salvage what can be salvaged, saving our customers in construction costs.  Our techs are Water Certified and take pride in only removing what cannot be saved.  Our techs cut to the waterline to remove the unsalvageable, and mitigating damage from further spreading throughout the area of focus.

Flood Cut Wall

Sink Damage To Wall

River Falls: Water damage can come from just about anywhere.  We recently helped a commercial client that had a sink malfunction and damaged the drywall and flooring on site.  Our techs came in and removed the damaged dry wall and flooring.  Before doing so they put up a protective wall to limit debris from going throughout the building. 

Ceiling Drying With Machines

Drying Containment

River Falls:  With the wet year, we have seen our share of water damage related work.  Our techs are Water Certified and are experienced with mitigating water in created ways.  Once the wet carpet and trim were removed, the techs had to focus their energy on drying out the ceiling that was affected. 

Wooden Crates

Off Site Vaults

Shredded Insulation

Bathroom Exhaust Fire

Cottage Grove:  Something as simple as a bathroom exhaust fan can start a fire, as was the case in this picture.  Our techs were called out to clean up after a small bath room fire.  Removing insulation, framing and dry wall.  As well as cleaning up after the smoke damage that was left behind. 

Removed Ceiling Tiles

Fire In the Ceiling

River Falls:  So fires don’t always extend through the whole home.  In this case a lighting strike caused an internal gas line to ignite.  The fire department responded quickly and the fire was contained.  However the contents still had smoke damage. Our techs packed out the contents, and cleaned and deodorized them while they were stored in our secured storage area on site.  

Boarded up Windows

Site Secrurity

Baldwin:  Sometimes before remediation can begin, the site needs to be secured first.  This was the case with a recent house fire that had a few windows and doors broken out, during the fire fight.  Closing these openings allows our techs to protect the contents from theft, and further damage from the elements, as a plan is developed to begin the work of clean up.

Soot Stained Appliances

Apartment Fire

River Falls:  Pictured is a recent fire that we were called in to service.  Our techs cleaned the contents that could be salvaged.  Removed items to a dumpster that could not be salvaged.  In the interior the techs removed carpeting and drywall and cleaned the soot.  Following our cleaning we helped to contract out the repairs, painting and new carpet install. 

Stripped and Waxed Floor

Cleaning

River Falls:  We also offer commercial cleaning services to clients as well.  From general carpet and duct cleaning, to the use of steam to clean a variety of hard surface areas.  Pictured is a recently completed floor where the tech took the floor down to the tile and then applied new wax.  

Equipment set up in a room.

Office Drying

Hudson:  This lower level office, located in an office building had a flooding issue during this year’s wet spring and summer seasons.  While we were not required to pull the carpeting, or cut out any of the drywall, we still had to stage numerous dehumidifiers and air moves to dry the affected area.  As well as daily monitoring by our techs. 

A basement

Basement Cleanup

A lower level basement of a commercial building had been saturated after a sump pump failed.  The failure was not discovered right away and lead to extensive mold growth, requiring us to call in a mold specialist to test the mold.  Once the mold was tested we were able to devise a plan to contain the spread of the mold during the remediation process. 

Equipment Setup

Commercial Water Clean

Rush City:  Our techs were called in to remove water damaged flooring, sub floor and dry wall.  Installing dehumidifiers and dryers to dry out remaining materials.  By applying our 1-4-8 standard, our techs were quickly able to respond and mitigate the situation.  Allowing the construction crews to come in and make the necessary repairs.  Because of the response time, the residents were able to take up residency sooner.
