High Wind Storm Damage

Pictured above is a home that sustained storm damage after very high speed winds swept through the area. A tree had been uprooted and fell on this house which then led to secondary water damages. You can see the tree that led to the damage and edge of the roof that sustained considerable damage. SERVPRO was called on to tarp the roof, remove the fallen debris, assess the extent of the secondary water damages, and get an estimate for repairs on the roof.

Fire Damage in your Kitchen?

According to the National Fire Protection Association, cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home injuries. The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking. It's important to be alert to prevent cooking fires.

  • Be on alert! If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol don't use the stove or stove top.
  • Stay in the kitchen while you are drying, grilling, boiling or broiling food.
  • If you are simmering, baking or roasting food, check it regularly, remain in the kitchen while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you are cooking.
  • Keep anything that can catch fire-- oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains-- away from the stove top.

Post Fire Soot Damage

A fire broke out in this apartment complex in Northern Michigan causing extensive fire, smoke, and soot damage throughout the complex. You may be wondering if those are spider webs in the picture above, but they are actually called soot webs. These are often times found after the instance of a fire. The soot particles end up bonding together and because of the circulation of the air will then cling to a wall, ceiling, or in between rafters as seen in the picture. 

SERVPRO is available 24/7 to help with any size fire or water disaster needs. We are always here to help and pride ourselves on making it "Like it never even happened." Call us in your time of need at 989-705-2400

Deep Fryer Fire

Deep Fryer Safety

The leading cause of kitchen fires according to the National Fire Protection Association is unattended cooking. That is precisely what happened in the picture above as the individual had left the deep fryer unattended and caused smoke and fire damage throughout the home. Deep fryers involve larger quantities of hot cooking oil, so it creates a higher risk of injury and loss. If you happen to have damage from a fryer fire, we have specialized equipment, specific training, and certifications at SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan that allow us to restore your home to pre-fire condition "Like it never even happened."

Water Damage- Emergency Mitigation Services

Pictured above is our hardworking staff scoping out a water damage job.

Damage by Tree During Winter

Your walls, flooring, and ceiling will most likely require professional cleaning services. In addition to cleaning your property’s structure, we will clean your furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other restorable belongings damaged by the water. Most flooding and water damage also require professional odor removal and deodorization since wet materials have a very distinct odor.

Fallen Tree Damage

When responding to a water damage emergency, we begin with a detailed inspection of your home or property, including a damage assessment. At this stage, our professionals are trying to determine the scope of the damage so that we can develop an appropriate plan of action.

Cleaning up the Water before the MOLD comes

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, 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 that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Water Damage Can Lead to MOLD

Since microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors, removing all mold from a home or business is impossible. Many restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy. We understand mold and mold growth. SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business.

Leaking Pipes

Move-Outs/Pack-Outs

If your home requires extensive restoration or cleaning, SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan can conduct an organized, efficient move-out of the affected area. A move-out will provide several benefits, including the following:

  • A quicker remodeling process
  • Protecting items from potential damage
  • Protecting contents from further on-site damage

When restoration is completed, we will work with you to coordinate the move-in according to your needs. The services offered upon move-in may depend on your insurance coverage.

Water Damage

SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan specializes in restoring contents damaged by fire, water, or mold. Our expertise and “restore” versus “replace” mentality can help you save money while preserving precious keepsakes that can’t be replaced. We pretest your contents to determine what items can be restored back to their condition before the water damage.

Commercial Water Damage

Water damage affects not only the structure of your house but also your belongings. SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan understands that your home is more than a structure; your family’s furniture, clothing, keepsakes, and other belongings help transform a house into a home.

Grows Anywhere

MOLD

It only takes a small water leak, or even excess humidity, for mold to form in your Gaylord home or business. Then, mold can spread quickly through the property in as little as 48 hours. Mold can produce allergens and irritants, and it has the potential to cause other health effects. If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
