Contaminated Flood Water

Contaminated Flood Water

Rising Flood water is considered to be contaminated water because the water travels through septic systems, fertilized yards, and building materials.  Rising flood waters entered this home during hurricane Harvey and all porous materials were removed from the home to ensure the homeowners health and safety.

Water can't hide from us!

Water can't hide from us!

Water is said to be the home’s worst enemy, or in this case, the business’s worst enemy. Water migrates through walls, along pipes, and travels the path of least resistance, even in areas we cannot see.  With the use of a thermal imaging camera SERVPRO® of Lake Conroe, Magnolia & Cleveland can find water and moisture hidden inside walls, sitting in the C Channel of a commercial building, high up in cathedral ceilings, elevator shafts, and even hidden inside paneled walls.  The use of technology saves valuable time when working with a large amount of square feet.  SERVPRO® of Lake Conroe, Magnolia & Cleveland has the technology, equipment, resources, and trained technicians to handle water damages large and small.

Soaking Wet Carpet Pad

Soaking Wet Carpet Pad

Did you know that 75% of the water that saturates your carpet is contained in the carpet pad?  This hidden water can be very deceiving; from the surface the carpet may look dry and feel just slightly damp or even completely dry.  A regular shop vac does not have the suction necessary to extract the water in the carpet pad and off the sub-floor.  Without professional extraction equipment the water left behind can lead to odors and mold growth.  It is always best to call the professionals at SERVPRO® of Lake Conroe, Magnolia & Cleveland for all your water extraction and drying needs.

Emergency Tarp & Board Up Services

Magnetic attraction of soot

Magnetic attraction of soot

Heat, soot, and debris from home fires are attracted to cooler objects and will migrate towards them like a magnetic attraction.  It is very common for even a small fire to produce a heavy build-up of soot on the bathroom fixtures because of their cooler temperatures.  This Magnolia area home experienced a small kitchen fire which spread a layer of soot and debris throughout the entire home and a heavy layer of soot in the bathroom.  Quick action is imperative to prevent the soot and debris from causing secondary damage.  If you have experienced a fire in your home or business you can count on the Professional Fire Restoration Technicians at SERVPRO® of Lake Conroe, Magnolia and Cleveland.

Shop Vac Demo

Shop Vac Demo

Thank you to Keith Armstrong with Met Life for helping us demonstrate how little water a shop vac will actually pull out of the carpet and pad.  Up to 75% of the water may be held in the carpet pad.  A shop vac is a great start but without proper extraction and humidification unattended water can lead to visible growth and future problems.   

Business Interruption Days = 0

Business Interruption Days = 0

Bathroom Moisture

Bathroom Moisture

Bathrooms can develop a great deal of moisture from showers, baths, and the humidity in the air. This is what causes mold spores to grow. Without proper ventilation, the wet areas of the bathroom do not dry properly leaving a perfect opportunity for mold spores to colonize and spread throughout the room.  If you have questions or concerns about visible mold growth in your home give us a call 936-441-8550 or 281-356-9991 and our friendly staff will be more than happy to walk you through the process.  For more information on the remediation process click here.

Cobweb-looking Smoke & Soot

Cobweb-looking Smoke & Soot

A strange characteristic of smoke is when plastic burns it creates clusters of cobweb-looking shapes in the corners of the room, called Smoke Webs.  Smoke Webs actually happen in many home and business fires and is not uncommon to the Professional Technicians at SERVPRO® of Lake Conroe, Magnolia & Cleveland.  A common misconception that many business and home owners have is that smoke and soot has settled onto actual cobwebs making them thicker and darker in appearance.
