The bottom half of a wall was removed for the drying process.

Water Damage Wall Removal

Drywall is a very porous material. So when water damage occurs, it is very likely that your walls will sop up a good amount of water. When it comes to drywall, it is always safer to remove the wet section and replace it with new, unaffected drywall. That is what was happening here for this customer.

Carpet and wall in bathroom affected by water damage.

Water Damage in Finished Basement Bathroom (Carpeted Floor)

Bathroom water damage is common, and when it happens it’s also common for the floor and walls to be affected. This room was no exception, and we were happy to be called for the cleanup and restoration.

Equipment placed to dry water damage that started on the second floor of this home.

Toilet Line Leak from Second Floor

When water damage happens on the second floor of a home, it almost always leads to water damage on the first floor as well. Water can drip from the floor above through the ceiling below and cause even more damage. That is what happened here and it was something we were happy to help to clean and restore.

Flooring pulled up after water damage.

Wood Floor Water Damage in Bedroom

Wood floors are usually pretty easily affected by water damage. Wood absorbs the water and warps and cracks after coming into contact with water. Luckily, we are Here to Help® with water damage, whether you have wood floors or any other type of floor!

Water damage to ceiling.

Ceiling Leak in Bedroom

The damage shown here might not look like much, but ceiling damage like this is usually the result of a bigger problem, and it can lead to some pretty severe damage if not taken care of. This is a prime example of when you should call your local SERVPRO®.

Mold under wall materials from unknown water damage source.

Mold from Water Damage of an Unknown Source

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it many more times; water damage that goes unnoticed can lead to major secondary water damage. This customer had water damage from an unknown source that lead to this extreme mold damage within the wall where the initial damage had occurred. We’re glad they made the choice to reach out to our team to get the mold remediation process underway!

Cement Floor Dry Out in Basement

Just because your floor doesn’t have any carpet or other flooring on top of it, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be extremely proactive about getting water dried up after damage occurs. Cement floors can still face mold damage from water damage. They can even face other secondary damage (ie cracking). So if you experience extreme water damage in your basement on a cement floor, call your local SERVPRO®. We’re Here to Help®.

Standing water on the cement basement floor.

Equipment Placed On Water Damaged Cement Basement Floor

We see a lot of water damage in basements. This basement had water damage that left standing water in a large area. So we extracted what we could, and we placed our equipment to dry what was still left behind.

Carpet completely saturated after water damage.

Saturated Carpet

We know that there are times when you will experience water damage, and you’ll feel that you can handle the damage yourself. However, if the water damage is as bad as what you see here, it is going to be best to contact a professional. Carpet that is completely saturated by water is hard to dry, especially when there is standing water like this. We have the equipment and the training to dry damage like this is a way that is thorough, quick, and will help you avoid secondary damage.

Major Water Damage to Mold Damage

When water damage goes unchecked, there can be even more damage that comes along. This damage is called secondary damage, and it generally means that you’re looking at needing to have mold remediation done. Sadly, this was not the only room of this house where this customer needed to have remediation performed. The good news is our team is Here to Help with situations like this.

Wall Damage as a Result of Water Damage

When water damage occurred in the ceiling of this bathroom, it affected way more than just the ceiling. The drywall and the paint of the wall below where the water came in were damaged as well. We were happy to have been called out to help with the restoration of this area for this customer!

Wet carpet after water heater blew out.

Water Heater Pressure Blow

Water heaters are the difference between hot and cold showers. So when one of them breaks and causes damage, it’s inconvenient for more than one reason. If your water heater blows, get whatever plumbing fixed that needs to be fixed, and if you have any water damage please reach out to your local SERVPRO®. We’ll do what we can to make it feel, “Like it never even happened.”

Carpeted floor wet after sump pump failure

Water Mitigation After Extraction in Large Basement

After removing multiple inches of water and a good amount of water-damaged contents from this basement, our team was ready to get equipment placed. That way any water left behind after extraction could be dried and the water damage in this basement could start to feel, “Like it never even happened.”

Wall behind toilet has a large bubble forming from frequent exposure to water/moisture.

Wall Bubbling from Water Damage

Bathrooms are a common place to find condensation and steam. Kids can splash water from the tub, and toilets can sometimes leave water damage from flushing or form leaks. That is why it’s not uncommon to see water damage on the walls of a bathroom. The bubbling in this wall comes from exposure to frequent moisture, and luckily, it is something that can definitely be fixed.

Ceiling torn out for drying after water damage

Water Damage in Kitchen

When water damage happens in your kitchen it can be a huge problem. Kitchens need to be clean to support food safety. When something like this happens, it’s important to get it taken care of right away. So if this happens to you just remember we’ll get there as soon as possible to help you with the cleanup and restoration. 

Equipment placed after multiple inches of water was extracted.

Dry Out After Water Extraction

This basement had multiple inches of water on the floor when our team was called out. So what we did was extract as many gallons of water as we could so that we could safely set our drying equipment to take care of the rest of the moisture on the floors and the walls. It’s what we’re here for!

Ceiling torn up after a pipe break damaged the area.

Pipe Break in the Ceiling

When the pipe in this ceiling broke there was more damage than just a little bit of water dripping through the materials. As you can see, the outer layer actually started to peel from all of the water that it came into contact with. This was definitely a situation in which it was a good idea to call us. We were happy to help!

Close up of a broken pipe - the metal is split.

Broken Pipe Example

This is just one example of a broken pipe. You can see just how small the opening of the break is. It’s crazy to think that something this small could cause major water damage to a home or business, but it can. That is why you should always check your pipes to make sure that you don’t have something like this happen to you!

Flooded area of a basement

Basement Flood

The last thing you want to see when you go into your basement is multiple inches of water on the floor. Sadly, it’s not completely unheard of for this to happen, even during these winter months here in Central Illinois. Luckily, your local has the ability to extract water and dry the affected area, making the water damage feel, “Like it never even happened.”

Air movers placed to dry water heater water damage

Water Heater Damage

It is no secret; water heaters leak. When they do, they can cause quite a bit of damage. The best advice we can give is to pay attention to your water heater, keep up on any maintenance, and if you do find yourself with damage make sure to get it taken care of right away to avoid secondary damage.

Air movers drying area under a sink

Kitchen Sink Damage

Kitchen sinks can be a hot spot for leaks. This area of the house is generally used quite frequently, and normal wear and tear can lead to leaks and other issues. When that happens, just remember that you can call your local SERVPRO® for the cleaning and restoration of the water damage.

Tile floor wet from water damage

Water Mitigation to Protect Basement Tile

The amount of water on this floor doesn’t look too terrible if you’re just looking at it. However, there are things that come with damage like this that need to be taken care of to avoid secondary damage. You could soak up all the water off of the surface, but if you don’t get the area dry with fans and other drying equipment, you could find yourself dealing with mold under the tiles later.

Tile and wall damaged from water softener leak

Water Softener Damage Through Wall

Water softeners are great to have in your home, but they can cause a fair amount of damage. The water softener on the other side of this wall leaked and caused damage to the drywall, the trim, and the flooring in this separate room. It’s not the first time we’ve seen this happen, so we were happy to come in and help with the cleanup and restoration.

Basement floor with about an inch of water covering it

Water Extraction - Flooded Basement

Water extraction is a process specifically used to remove as much excess water as possible before the fans and dehumidifiers are placed. Think of it this way; which of the following would dry out faster a small puddle or a pond? By removing the excess water, you give the area a better chance at drying before there is any secondary damage.

Hole in ceiling from water damage in attic.

Water Damage from the Attic

Gravity can sometimes be very unforgiving. Water damage occurred in the attic of this home and it eventually dripped through the ceiling below it. This of course resulted in water damage that needed to be dried out on two separate levels. That is why the customer called us! We were happy to help them get dry and back to normal.

Major damage to wall from a water heater leak.

Wall Damage from Water Heater Leak

Carpet and trim removed and floor dried before reconstruction process.

Post Damage Reconstruction

Once this area was finally dried post water damage, it was time for the reconstruction process to begin. It doesn't look like much now, but once it's done, the area will be back to normal for the customer!

Reconstruction process of a basement ceiling.

Dishwasher Leak: Reconstruction

It doesn’t look very welcoming now, but it will soon. This area was damaged from a leaking dishwasher a floor above. When the basement ceiling was dried, it was time to start the reconstruction part of the job. Once it’s done, the client will be able to continue on, “Like it never even happened.”

Area in basement where water had leaked through the ceiling from the floor in the level above.

Dishwasher Leak Through Hardwood Floor

Hardwood floors and water damage are a bad combination. Not only can moisture warp and disturb the actual flooring, but just like this customer learned, it can also go through the flooring and into areas below. This was definitely one of those situations, and we were happy to be able to help!

Walls torn out and ready to be reconstructed after dry out cleanup.

Water Damage Recon Process

Water damage most commonly affects floors and walls. Once any destroyed materials have been removed and everything is dry, it’s time to get into the reconstruction process of the area started. When it looks like this it can seem daunting, but once we’ve finished with the reconstruction, we hope that our water damage customers will be able to feel, “Like it never even happened.”

Drywall covered in mold before the remediation process.

Mold in Drywall

Drywall is a porous material that is very commonly used in building homes and businesses. So when water damage happens and the affected drywall isn’t replaced or quickly dried, mold can start to grow in any sections where water was absorbed. That’s what happened here, and that’s why this customer chose to call our teams to help with the mold remediation.

Air movers placed to dry sub-flooring.

Wet Sub-floor

Water damage is always most obvious on the surface of your floor. It’s important to remember though that large amounts of water damage can and will most likely damage the sub-floor as well. That is what happened in the image shown here. That is why once the flooring was removed, there were air movers placed to dry the sub-floor as well.

Air movers placed in a laundry room for the drying process.

Laundry Room Water Damage

Laundry rooms experience their fair share of water damage. This laundry room was no different. So the customer made the choice to call us to get the room dried and ready to be used again. Just another way we’re Here to Help®!

Wood floors removed for drying process and air movers placed for drying.

Water Damage Under Hardwood Floor

When this customer had a pipe break, it damaged multiple areas of hardwood. This was a situation bad enough to require the flooring of these rooms to be pulled for drying. The good news is that taking that step resulted in the base floor being dried and now it’s just a matter of replacing the hardwood.

Drywall and carpet removed in the area of a basement where there was water damage from the spigot on the outside of the house

Outdoor Spigot Causing Indoor Damage

The thing about outdoor spigots is that the water still comes from inside the house. If things go wrong, that water could leak back into the house and cause some minor or serious damage to your home. So keep an eye on your outdoor water sources! Make sure they’re in working order so you don’t have to face damages to your property.

Carpet in finished basement affected by standing water

Standing Water In Finished Basement

Standing water in any basement can be a problem, but when the standing water is in a finished basement it can be an even bigger issue. From wet carpet to damaged drywall, it can become quite stressful. The good news is you can call your local SERVPRO® for the cleanup and restoration of your finished basement if you do experience water damage. We’re Here to Help®.

Floorboards warped from water damage in the livingroom.

Dehumidifier and air movers placed to dry water damage in a hallway with wood flooring

Equipment Placement

It doesn’t seem like anything particularly interesting when you look at it, but the way this equipment was placed was deliberate and is the most effective way of drying out this area. The training received by all of our SERVPRO® team members gives them the skills to place air movers and dehumidifiers in a way that creates an optimal drying situation.

Our teams are trained in making sure that carpets are dried properly. So if you experience damage like this, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your preferred SERVPRO franchise. We are Here to Help.

Kitchen area in the middle of the restoration process

Ice Maker Malfunction

It’s crazy to think something as simple as an ice maker could cause so much damage. That was the case in this home though. The ice maker malfunctioned, and when it did it damaged the man floor of this house, and the lower level of the house was damaged as well. The cause of the damage for this job was undoubtedly unique, but as you can see above, the drying process was completed and the customer has been able to move on to the restoration part of the process.

The room shown here is dry and the bottom half of the dry wall is removed and ready for reconstruction

Post Mitigation/Pre-Recon

The image shown here is generally what you would be looking at if you were in-between the mitigation and the reconstruction part of a water job (that is if the job required this level of restoration after the damage occurred.)

A small square section of flooring in the kitchen is removed for the drying process.

Dish Washer Leak

When your dishwasher leaks, the top of the floor isn’t the only par you have to worry about getting dry. Water can collect under your kitchen floor as well, and if not dealt with it can lead to mold or other secondary water damage. You can count on your local SERVPRO for water mitigation and restoration. We’re Here to Help®!

Water damage was found when the bathroom sink/cupboard area was removed during the customer's renovation process.

Water Damage Found During Renovation

It really isn’t uncommon to find old water damage when you decide to renovate your bathroom. This customer ended up finding water damage where the sink/cupboard was, and it ended up causing a little bit of mold. Luckily, they called our teams for the cleanup and mold remediation. We’re glad they knew they could count on us to help them out so they could continue with their renovation project!

Room with water damage to the floor has the bottom section of the drywall removed for a more thorough drying process

Why the Bottom Gets Removed

When water damage affects walls, it is important to make sure that you get them as dried out as possible. Sometimes this requires removing the lower sections of the walls that are either beyond repair or are making it difficult to dry the wall as a whole. We know it looks bad sometimes, but after the wall is dry and the removed parts of the walls are repaired, it’s clear that the process was all worth it!

Client garage has mold on the lower portion of the wall from unnoticed water damage.

Garage Mold

A garage is a part of any home that can frequently fall victim to water damage. Just like inside the home, it is important to get to the water damage before it leads to mold and/or other secondary damage.

If you feel like your garage might have a mold problem, please don’t hesitate to contact us for the remediation process.

Basement floor from storage room into the hallway covered in water.

Basement Water Damage

It’s never an easy situation to be in when your basement floods. That is why we are here. We will extract excess water, dry out the area that was affected, and then if needed we can clean and restore any of the extra content as well.

We do our best to be the team that makes your damage seem, “Like it never even happened.”

Pipe Burst in the Ceiling

Pipe Burst

One small problem with a pipe can lead to a much bigger problem. When this pipe burst, it soaked the drywall, and drywall is very good at holding onto moisture. The only way to really dry this area completely was to pull the affected sections of drywall and replace them. By the end of the job the water was dried, mold damage was avoided, and the customer was happy.

Image of the affected area and the case of loss from the water damage.

Fridge Leak and Damage

It’s strange to think that a fridge line could cause enough damage that you would need to call us. However, it happens more often than you would think. We are here to deal with the water damage and to make sure that everything affected is dry so you can avoid mold. We do what we can to make simple jobs like these feel, “Like it never even happened.”

Bathroom during dry out (with cause of loss.)

Bathroom Damage During Dryout

The bathroom shown here had been damaged from water that backed up from the drain and completely covered the floor. We took every measure we could to make sure that the beautiful tiling was not damaged any further from the water.

Carpet lifted for the drying process

Carpet Damage

It is important, when dealing with water damaged carpet, to understand that the surface water damage is only part of the issue. Water seeps through the carpet, into the padding below, and in some situations into the base which can be wood or cement depending on the building. So it’s important to reach out to a cleaning and restoration company like SERVPRO® to help you dry the carpet carefully and completely.

Image of damage from drain water back-up.

Drain Back-Up

When a drain malfunctions, there’s no telling how bad the damage can get. So if you find that a drain in your basement (like the one shown here) or in a bathtub or anywhere else is having problems, please get it taken care of by a plumber as soon as possible. If you experience damage, call us for the cleaning and restoration. We’re Here to Help®.

Hole in ceiling from water damage

Broken Fridge Line

It’s strange to think that a little thing like a broken refrigerator line could cause damage to this extent. It is possible though, and the image shown here is proof. Water from the broken line upstairs leaked into the basement and caused a whole mess of problems. So remember to pay attention to your appliances; especially those that could lead to damage like this.

Tile ceiling is bowing from the weight of water damage.

Bowing Ceiling

Ceilings can only withstand so much damage, especially when the ceiling is a tile type ceiling like the one shown here. When water damage gets too heavy, it will begin to bow, and eventually, it is likely to collapse. If you find yourself dealing with damage like this, call your local SERVPRO®. We are Here to Help®.

Mold buildup on concrete basement wall.

Mold on Wall

The image shown here is of a moldy basement wall. This may look like something caused by severe damage, but something like this could begin to form in any basement where the moisture levels are too high. Keep a lookout for spots like this forming in your basement, or else you could be the one facing a moldy situation!

Image of damaged carpet and a wall with the trim removed.

Sump-Pump - Damage that Spreads

Sump-pump failure can lead to big trouble. As shown in this photo, the water escaped the sump-pump room and made its way into a carpeted room of the house. Luckily we were able to clean the carpet and everything else affected!

Images of air movers and dehumidifies in a building for a dry-out.

Pipe Burst

This empty house was hit with water damage that did damage in multiple rooms. When our team came to the scene they knew they were going to need to focus hard on getting the floors dried. Luckily, it was possible for the techs to get underneath the floorboards and get the base of the floor dried. In doing this they helped to reduce the risk of further damage from mold.

Water damage is never fun, but it’s a little easier to handle when you know you’ve got a team like SERVPRO® in your corner.

Image of air-movers placed in their dry-out positions for a job.

A Visual of the Equipment

It’s hard to know what to expect when water mitigation and dry-out are started on your property. This particular commercial property had a good amount of equipment placed. As seen here, there were air-movers (the small green machines) and dehumidifiers (the large machine) in this room. These are common machines to see during a water job. If you have questions about the equipment, your technicians will be happy to explain what they are and what they do during the job!

Flooded floor - Water coming up from the sump pump in the basement

Sump-Pump Nightmare

There are no words to describe the frustration of sump pump problems. Taking care of them is a necessity, and doing it correctly and fast is important, especially in extreme cases like the one shown above. In these types of situations, you can always contact SERVPRO® for the cleanup and restoration.

Pipe Break In Basement

These kinds of tiles can be frustrating due to them being so easily damaged. However, in this situation, these tiles made things a bit easier. There was a pipe burst in the basement ceiling, and while there was a little bit of damage it was easier to get to the broken pipe because it was easier to access. Easier access means faster repairs, and that’s something everyone can be happy about!

Tub Mold

When you bathe, you want the shower/tub in which you’re cleaning yourself in to be clean. However, if a home is left untouched for a while (whether because it’s for sale or it’s not a full-time home) leftover water can cause mold to form. This is the kind of thing that you can avoid by making sure that leaks are managed and that any water is dried up before you leave the home for long periods of time. It may seem like busywork, but it’s less work than getting mold cleaned up.

Basement Flood

It’s true. When there is a flood in a building, the floors are what you’ll usually notice are damaged. However, if you look at the photo here, you can see some very clear damage to the walls as well that is trickling down from the upstairs floor, which is the ceiling to the basement. You have to be sure to look for damage everywhere you can. If you think you may have missed something, contact your local SERVPRO®. Our techs are trained to know where to look, and they won’t disappoint.

Small Hole. Big Mess.

Any time of year, there can be a pipe burst. You never know what will cause it, but when it happens, it doesn’t matter how big the hole is. You need to get it taken care of. Small holes can look harmless, but if left untouched, they can get worse and cause much more damage than expected.

The Real Monster In The Basement

Mold thrives in dark, humid areas. This makes basements the perfect dwelling for them. Any type of mold from harmless to dangerous can be found in any building type - home and business alike. So it is important to make sure that you’re checking those cold dark spaces for mold. If you do happen to have mold, you need to reach out to professionals to get it taken care of. You don’t want to risk your personal property getting damaged or risk issues for your family’s or employees’ health. SERVPRO® teams are trained in mold remediation and they are happy to help get your home or business back to normal.

What Is Under Your Washer & Dryer?

Clothing washers and dryers are some of the few appliances that never really move once they’ve been placed. Because of this, it is really easy for dust, mold, and other grime to build up underneath the machines. While this may not seem like an issue, excess dust can build up and become a fire hazard, and mold in large amounts can cause health issues to those living in the building. It is important to check behind and underneath washers and dryers whenever the opportunity presents itself.

If you happen to find something unsettling or something you can’t handle on your own, reach out to your local SERVPRO® professionals. We are Here to Help®!

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.

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?
