Sump Pump Failure from Devastating Storm

Sump Pump Failure from Devastating Storm

A Verona, WI residence had a sump pump fail causing extensive loss. Over a foot of rain in six hours on August 20 caused the pump to fail consequently flooding the basement and ruining fifteen hundred feet of carpet. SERVPRO of Dane County West mitigated the water damage by removing the carpet and pad, removing baseboard and drilling holes in the drywall to allow ventilation into drywall. We positioned fans and dehumidifiers to reduce moisture content to acceptable levels.

Should you experience water damage from the recent abundance of rain, SERVPRO of Dane County West is here to help for and make it "Like it never even happened."  #608-497-3331

Mold Damage in Fitchburg, WI

Mold Damage in Fitchburg, WI

Visible mold growth was found on the concrete walls and wood subfloor of this basement room in Fitchburg, WI.  We remediated the mold and disinfected the area thoroughly.  We instructed the home owner to increase air circulation and to use dehumidification to prevent any further microbial growth.

Storm Damage to Three-Season Porch

Storm Damage to Three-Season Porch

We were called out to this residence in New Glarus, WI, because heavy rains caused seepage into the original part of the house causing water damage to this three-season porch that a builder was in the process of adding. One of the unique ways we dealt with this loss was by coming from the outside of the house and cutting away some sheathing to remove wet blown-in insulation. We also needed to dry hardwood floors and used a tenting method as seen in the after picture to dry the hardwood floors. This technique allowed us to save the hardwood floors.

Water Damage From Broken Supply Line

Water Damage From Broken Supply Line

Due to extensive water damage from a broken supply line in this kitchen in Oregon, WI, existing cabinets were damaged beyond repair. We needed to remove and replace the granite countertops as well as provide and install several new kitchen cabinets. Dane County West Professionals were able to mitigate all water damage behind cabinets and in the floor by using advanced water drying technologies.
The Professionals at SERVPRO of Dane County West can simplify the restoration process by handling both the initial damage mitigation and rebuilding the affected areas. Having one qualified company for the entire process can save time and keeps costs low.

Broken Spigot Due To Sub-Zero Temperatures This Past Winter

This was a broken spigot in Fitchburg, WI due to subzero temperatures during this past winter. Upon attempting to fill their pool the owner’s basement flooded with water.

Fire in Verona

Fire in Verona

This is a fire that started in an apartment behind a popular restaurant in Verona. The apartment structure was a total loss but the restaurant was affected by both smoke damage and water damage from the fire hoses. We are working to make sure that the restaurant structure is cleaned and repaired so they can reopen as soon as possible.

We are using Air Filtration Devices (AFD) as well as hydroxyl generators to both clean the air and remove as much odor as possible.

As with most fires, extensive water mitigation from putting the fire out as well as content manipulation and rebuilds are common.

Water Damage in Middleton from Frozen Spigot This Past Winter

Water Damage in Middleton from Frozen Spigot This Past Winter

This is a water loss in Middleton due to a spigot that had split during sub-zero temperatures this past winter. Often times these problems are not discovered until the spring when the homeowner turns on their hoses to start watering plants and lawn. Water ran down through the ceiling and down the walls and affected the flooring in the basement. SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals removed the affected flooring to dry the subfloor below and removed the drywall in the wall due to the blown in insulation behind it. Once blown in insulation gets wet it compresses and loses its effectiveness. Rebuild is in process.

Water Loss from Shower Cracks and Grout Lines in Oregon, WI

Water Loss from Shower Cracks and Grout Lines in Oregon, WI

This was a water loss in Oregon, Wisconsin. A walk-in shower had cracks in the grout lines leading to water leaking through the shower pan and into the ceiling and room below. Unfortunately, this problem was not diagnosed right away and went on for quite some time. Mitigation required removing drywall and insulation that had been affected. Once those materials were removed we then set up an appointment to dry the sub-floor and floor joists.

This picture of a large water-filled garbage can is from two dehumidifiers we used on a commercial water loss. This is an example of how much water can be pulled out of the air from a water loss over a two day period. We use large receptacles, like this garbage can, to collect the water from our dehumidifiers when a drain isn't accessible.

SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals Use Highly Technical Equipment to Mitigate Your Loss

SERVPRO of Dane County West was able to extract over and inch of standing water in an unfinished basement in Verona, WI.  Using the portable extractor, we were able to remove over 100 gallons of water from the structure. 

An extractor has three major components: a heater, a pump, and a vacuum system. Our technicians use this machine for variable heat-controlled cleaning, including to heat the rinse solutions to clean more effectively. The vacuum system and waste recovery tank remove soils and moisture from the surface and collects it in tank.

Toilet leaks can cause extensive water damage to flooring, don’t worry, we are here to help!

Toilet leaks can cause extensive water damage to flooring, don’t worry, we are here to help!

A standard toilet has at least five seals with the potential for leaking. In each case, the solution
is to identify the faulty seal and tighten or replace it. Should the leak go unnoticed for many
days, like in this picture above, it’s important to remove the toilet and replace the water
damaged floor.

When water saturates flooring and sub-flooring for an extensive amount of time,
mold and decay is inevitable, as also seen in this picture.

SERVPRO of Dane County West has
the expertise to assess the degree of the water damage and if the flooring is unsalvageable, we
can rebuild your space and make it “Like it never even happened.”

Using Advanced Industrial Drying and Dehumidification Equipment in Water Damage Restoration

Using Advanced Industrial Drying and Dehumidification Equipment in Water Damage Restoration

Once the excess water has been removed, the floors and walls may appear dry, but a quick inspection will reveal they are wet to the touch. Nearly all building materials, like wood, drywall, and flooring materials, are porous and therefore retain water. After Water Extraction has occurred SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals use advanced industrial drying and dehumidification equipment as seen in the picture above.

SERVPRO of Dane County West Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business.
