Little Dryers!

Drying A Small Space...

This loss came as a result of a refrigerator supply line busting. The homeowner tried to clean the water, but the water never stopped coming. SERVPRO came in, assessed the situation, and laid down the drying equipment seen in the above photo. We were in and out of the house in less than a week and customer was very appreciative of our work!

9 Things To Do If you Incur Water Damage

9 Steps To Take!

Before calling SERVPRO

  • Shut off the source of the water.

  • Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building if the access panel is safe from electrical shock.

  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting

  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removing lamps and tabletop items

  • Remove and prop up wet upholstery cushions for even drying

  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting

  • Remove to a safe, dry place any paintings, art objects, computers, documents and other materials that are valuable or sensitive to moisture.

  • Use wooden clothespins to keep furniture skirting off damp floors

  • Hang draperies with coated hangers to avoid contact with wet carpeting or floors

Flooded Basement

Water Damage

Drying The Floors

This before and after of a flooded basement was a result of a broken supply line. The water line that supplied the refrigerator broke and water began running to the lower levels of the home. As you can see in the photo, at some points the water was 1/2 an inch deep. SERVPRO was able to come in and dry this home. We were in and out within a week and our customer was very pleased with the results!

Upstairs Ceiling Fallen Through

Ceiling Situation

Attic Affects Three Floors

This photo is the result of a busted water pipe in the upstairs attic. This damage extended from the attic, through the upstairs floor level, all the way to the floor of the main floor level. There was a large amount of water contamination on each floor. In the attic itself, water affected not only the structural drywall, but also boxes that were stored there. On the second floor (pictured) insulation was spread all throughout the affected bathroom and even in some surrounding rooms. If you have damage in your home, call SERVPRO! We are here to help!

Leak Under The Sink

Everything Under The Bathroom Sink!

Leaky Pipes

The above photo was taken after the large freezes of early 2018. This event saw catastrophic temperature drop-offs causing mass freezing around our area and surrounding areas as well. A leak in a supply line to a bathroom sink faucet. The owner tried to dry out the damage by homemade means over the course of weeks, but it didn't take-it even spread to other parts of the adjacent walls. If you find yourself in a pickle with your home or property damage, we are here to help!

Drying Equipment

Drying Equipment

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
  • High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which accelerates the evaporation of moisture.

Drying / Dehumidification

SERVPRO of North Whitfield and Catoosa County Professionals will manipulate temperature and relative humidity to remove the remaining moisture. They use specialized equipment, including industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, to remove water retained by building materials and other hard-to-access moisture. They’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.
