Water Damage to Ceiling

Water Damage to Ceiling

When the snow melts, it turns to water. When this water builds it can tear up the walls an ceilings of a building. This particular image shows damages to a church building that had suffered after the tough winter we had here in Central Illinois. It is damage like this that we here at SERVPRO® are more than happy to come and restore for those who decide to call on us.

Wall Deep Cleaning

Wall Deep Cleaning

Sometimes buildings are allowed to accumulate a certain level of grime. Floors and walls become caked with hard to clean filth. When this happens, you can call SERVPRO® and our cleaning teams will be more than up to the task of cleaning whatever is stained. As you can see in this photo, the difference is astounding.

Mattress Cleaning After Fire Damage

Mattress Cleaning After Fire Damage

Mattresses are difficult to live without and pretty costly to replace. When you experience damages from water or fire, you shouldn’t always have to worry about replacing your mattress. SERVPRO® can help by cleaning damage from water issues or from smoke and soot. The mattress pictured here suffered from soot damage and you can see a clear difference in what it looked like before and after our cleaning crew took care of it. You can sleep soundly knowing that we are Here to Help®.

When Vehicles & Buildings Collide

When Vehicles & Buildings Collide

The last thing anyone expects is for a four-wheeled machine to come bursting through the front of your home or business. Even if there’s nobody inside the building, it can be one of the most dangerous situations. The picture here is of the damage from that exact situation that occurred at a post office. The front of the building all but collapsed and they called in our SERVPRO® Heroes to clean and restore the damage. When something as important as mail is involved, it is important to get the job done as soon as possible, and they called us just in time!

Mold: It Can Hide Anywhere

Mold: It Can Hide Anywhere

Basements, attics, that spot behind your dresser that never gets any sunlight; Mold can be in any space with the correct mixture of moisture and temperature. The only trouble is, the longer it goes unnoticed, the more damage it is liable to cause.

The above photo shows a corner of mold in a crawl space that just couldn’t be seen or reached by the owner of the house. Our professionals came in and did what they do best, they found the mold, assessed the damage, and cleaned it out.

Even though mold can hide anywhere, it’s no match for our SERVPRO® Heroes.

Mold or No Mold?

Mold or No Mold?

While mold is sometimes immediately visible, there are some times when it’s in a place that is less than easy to access. If you can’t see it, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t there.

When you are faced with water damage or even if the humidity levels are higher than normal in your home or business, there is a possibility that mold will be present. If you aren’t sure, you can always contact SERVPRO®. Our teams are trained to be able to detect mold that you may not have known was there. Through mitigation and remediation, we can relieve you of your mold problems.

So why keep asking yourself if it is or isn’t mold when you could contact SERVPRO® professionals and have your questions answered and your issue resolved?

Fire Damage Cleanup

Fire Damage Cleanup

We can never say enough that fire damage is not restricted to directly affected areas. While you’re checking the space around whatever started the fire, it’s important to remember to check the rest of the house for smoke/soot damage. This image is a good example of the type of soot damage that can be left by a fire. Fire damage can leave a mess as bad as the thick layer pictured here or as light as a smoke smell throughout the rest of the building. Whatever the case, it’s best to stay as vigilant as possible after a fire.

Construction Cleanup

Construction Cleanup

When you’ve had parts of your house fixed after damage occurs there is sometimes a mess left behind that your everyday vacuum can’t take care of. When we come in and do reconstruction on a home, you can depend on us to clean up after ourselves. Our teams understand that the stress doesn’t just come from the water or the fire, it comes from knowing that your home or business is not as clean as it was before the event happened. We do our best to make your recovery as stress-free as possible.

Pekin Library Cleanup

Pekin Library Cleanup

Recently in local news, it’s been known that the Pekin Library has finally opened its doors again. The library was shut down after a storm at the end of last year caused a flood and sewage backup that affected most of the building (an example of the damage is shown in the attached photo). Our teams were called in for the cleanup and after a couple of months not only cleaning the building but also taking care of the books inside it, the doors reopened and business is as usual!

For a good comparison, please go check out our before and after section. The difference will amaze you!

Commercial Cleaning at Kouri's Pub

At the end of 2018, we were called to take care of Kouri’s Pub in Pekin Illinois. The ceiling was in desperate need of deep cleaning and we were more than happy to come out and help (especially since our contents crew had a chance to work in a toasty warm area during the cold winter months).
