Summer Home Roof Damaged from Winter Storms

This homeowner found the roof of their porch collapsed at their summer home from the heavy snow and ice melt on the roof, from the winter storms. Because this was an unattended summer home, the water sat for a long period of time and had the potential for mold growth. Once our trained technicians completed the mitigation, we sprayed an antimicrobial solution to prevent any future mold growth. Has your summer home suffered from water damage?

Cleaning Soot and Smoke at a North Rensselaer County Home

This Rensselaer County, NY home experienced a puff-back this spring and the walls and ceilings needed to be deep cleaned.

SERVPRO of North Rensselaer/South Washington Counties uses similar methods and cleaning products for a puff-back used in cleaning a fire damaged home.

Soot Webs

This Rensselaer county residence suffered from soot damage to their home from a malfunction in their furnace. This is what we call a “puffback.” These webs look a lot like cobwebs or spider webs that formed in corners of the basement, but are actually not related to cobwebs at all. These webs are called soot webs and form when ionized soot particles stick together in chains.

Personal Protective Equipment

Secondary Home Affected by Mold

After a severe cold spell and the pipes broke in this secondary home, it created the perfect environment for mold growth. Mold thrives on moisture and quickly grows into colonies when exposed to water. When the homeowners arrived to check on the home this spring, they found the home covered in mold. A minor mold problem can quickly become a major infestation if left untreated.

Soot and Odor From a Furnace Backup

When a furnace backed up in the basement of a North Rensselaer County home, the outside vent forced soot and smoke onto the lawn of the home. The smoke odor in the home needed to be treated with a deodorization method called thermal fogging and all the laundry was washed for the homeowner to help remove the smell.

Winter Storm Results in Ice Dams

With all of the snow we got this winter and the fluctuation in the temperatures, many NY and VT residents experienced ice dams. This photo is an example of water damage from an ice dam where the water traveled through the window, due to the backup of melting water from ice on the roof. 

Mold in Basement

When SERVPRO of North Rensselaer/South Washington Counties was called to a Rensselaer, NY home that had significant mold contamination in the basement, our trained professionals sprayed the basement with antimicrobial solution to help prevent future mold growth. Mold thrives in an environment with moisture. If you have a mold problem, call us at (518)677-3444 to begin the remediation process!

Mold Remediation Safety

These signs are one of the many safety measures we used during a recent commercial mold remediation job. We use personal protective equipment (PPE) when working with hazardous materials, such as mold. These signs ensure the safety of others by making them aware that PPE is required if you need to go through these areas. 

Equipment Setup

This is an example of just some of our equipment that we use for restoration and cleanup of water damage. Industrial grade dehumidifiers and high-speed air movers help to create airflow to aid and speed up evaporation of water and moisture. If a fire, water or mold disaster strikes, call SERVPRO of North Rensselaer/South Washington Counties at (518)677-3444. We will respond 24/7 and are trained and dedicated to make any disaster “Like it never even happened”

Rensselaer Fire

The fire at this home was caused by an electrical fire. We removed the charred ceiling to expose the studs behind for any cleaning that may be needed, and came to find this large beehive!

Severe Mold Damage

Most mold damage phone calls are for minor issues in an attic or basement. This was an abnormal situation where the house sat empty for a long period of time with no power. Due to no power, the sump pump was not running and the standing water in the basement created mold throughout the entire home.

Soot Removal with Soda Blasting

Soda blasting is a process in which sodium bicarbonate is applied against a surface using compressed air. Soda blasting is a non-destructive method for many applications in cleaning, paint & varnish stripping, automotive restoration, industrial equipment maintenance, rust removal, graffiti removal, oil removal, and in this scenario soot remediation.

Mold Damage

This picture is from a home that had been affected by extreme water damage. If wet materials are not taken care of immediately, mold will begin to grow. In this case, the house sat for a long period of time without being dried, which made for the perfect growing conditions for mold.

Flooded basement

We try to explain to our customers the importance of fixing the cause of water intrusion before mitigation begins. Most insurance companies do not pay for secondary mitigation when initial mitigation has already been started. This job site did not have their source properly fixed causing even further damage.

Thermal fogging

Have you ever wondered how we are able to remove that stubborn smoke smell out of a fire damaged home? One of the many ways we remove those smells after fully cleaning the structure is by using a hot thermal fog. This deodorization process recreates the fire in the home using a deodorizing fog using solvent cleaning agents to remove those stubborn smells in a home and get into all the pores of the materials of the home to remove the smells we cannot remove by just cleaning. Thermal fogs are pairing agents, meaning they chemically react with odors and residues and eliminate odors rather than just masking them. This process is very effective for deodorizing a fire damaged home.

Water Extraction

Water extraction is key in drying out and saving carpet in any structure. If the water is not extracted properly and in a certain amount of time it may not be able to be saved due to delamination and bacteria growth. By using a truck mounted extraction machine we were able to extract this carpet thoroughly and in a sufficient amount of time. Due to the extraction we are able to remove 80% of the water from the carpet and then set up drying equipment to dry the last 20% that cannot be extracted. This allowed us to reduce dry time and save the carpet in this commercial water loss.

Averill Park freeze up

A third floor Jacuzzi tub supply line froze and flooded an entire home. With so much excess water, it found its way through the eaves to the outside of the house and froze do to the extreme cold. The ice started almost 20 feet off the ground and was about 3ft thick in some areas!

Wood Rot in NY

This photo was taken in a vacant house that had been left sitting for 2 years. When the new homeowners took it apart, it was discovered that water had been leaking in through the windows, and the wood was rotting. Good thing we were there to help!

Water Damage in Rupert, Vermont

After a pipe burst in a Vermont home, the water froze under the house due to extremely low temperatures. We were able to use an outside heating source which melted the ice, and we were able to dry the sub-floor.

Fire in Southern Vermont

Due to an electrical shortage, this family's home was damaged by a fire. We worked quickly and efficiently, and were able to salvage the home. After our cleaning was complete and rebuild was done, they were able to move back into their home.

The Crew is All Together!

We finally got everyone together for a crew photo! We are working hard to get ready for our big move to Cambridge, NY so we can serve our community better.
