Do You See The Signs?

If you see some of these discoloration marks on your ceilings or walls, don't ignore them. They are always the sign of water damage. Untreated, this can lead to much bigger problems. Call SERVPRO (and a plumber!).

The importance of moisture readings

After a water damage, no matter how well you think you've extracted the water and dehumidified the space, moisture will remain. It permeates any porous surface quickly and this is when mold begins to grow. It's imperative to take moisture readings to ensure the levels are at an acceptable number. This is part of our normal procedure at every job.

The Anatomy of an Ice Dam

When you look at those glistening icicles hanging off the edge of any building or home, you usually just think how pretty they are…hanging there innocently, shining in the sunlight! Well, not so fast! These beauties can often lead to ice dams, which can lead to huge headaches for the owner. 

This illustration shows a good layman's explanation of what an ice dam is and how it forms and This Old House writes a great article on what to do if you have them. 

Water Damage Threatens Iconic Artwork

When a pipe burst, forcing 10,000+ gallons of water through an old, historical building, much of the artwork in the school was at risk of irreversible damage. For example, this old piano, creatively repainted, would have been destroyed without a quick mitigation action plan.

SERVPRO of Danvers/Ipswich immediately brought in dozens of fans to combat the moisture and two 1 million BTU Incandescent Heaters to heat the air. The school is currently undergoing the mitigation process.
