Northern Michigan- We specialize in flooded basement Cleanup and Restoration!

Northern Michigan, We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration!  

With Spring upon us and our snow melting away and with rainfall, a basement can flood at any time.  Flooding most often occurs during the spring or when there is heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Northern Michigan basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Have Questions about Basement Flooding?

Call Today - SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan 989-705-2400

Do you have a Mold problem in your Seasonal Home?

3/27/2019 (Permalink)

Mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.  Throughout Emmet, Charlevoix and Cheboygan County we have many residential homes that are seasonal that may have been closed down for the winter.  

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • 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.

If you are opening up your seasonal home for the season and notice that your home has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

We Handle Roof Leaks from Ice Dams!

3/27/2019 (Permalink)

Ice dams are a fact of life in Gaylord Michigan and our surrounding area. They can cause major water damage to the exterior and interior as gravity pulls water inside of your home or business through the wood, insulation, and drywall, causing major structural damage and mold growth.

Your best bet against damage from ice dams is to take the steps necessary to keep dams from forming in the first place. Proper attic insulation & ventilation are the key elements in preventing ice dams from developing – having the right insulation and ventilation will provide the optimal temperature balance in the attic, and prevent the thaw/freeze cycle that causes ice dams.

But, what do you do when a dam forms, and you see – or suspect – damage?  SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan can help mitigate any water damage caused by ice dams and help you get your structure back to preloss condiiton.  We handle the mitigation and have the ability to do the reconstruction to put you back to preloss condition.

Frozen Pipes In Your Home?

1/2/2019 (Permalink)

Why Pipe Freezing is a Problem

Water has a unique property in that it expands as it freezes. This expansion puts tremendous pressure on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes. No matter the strength of a container, expanding water can cause pipes to break.

Pipes that freeze most frequently are:

  • Pipes that are exposed to severe cold, like outdoor hose bibs, swimming pool supply lines, and water sprinkler lines.
  • Water supply pipes in unheated interior areas like basements and crawl spaces, attics, garages, or kitchen cabinets.
  • Pipes that run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation.

If you run into any problems with broken frozen pipes and water is pouring into your home. Give us a call and we can help you!
