Defense Against Mold Growth

Prompt mitigation is vital to avoid mold growth, which can be visible in as little as 24 to 48 hours under certain conditions.

  • Keep the humidity between 30 to 60 percent.
  • Provide for proper drainage away from building foundations.
  • Regularly inspect plumbing and appliances for leaks.
  • Keep gutters and drains clear of debris.
  • Inspect the roof, windows, and other areas where water might enter the building and perform necessary maintenance.
  • Respond to all water intrusions immediately.

Ozone Generator Eliminates a Variety of Odors Caused by Animals, Smoke, Mildew, and Fire Damage

Portable ozone generators like this one from a job in Middleton, WI, eliminates a variety of odors caused by animals, cigarette smoke, mold and mildew, fire, and water damage. This machine generates “ozone”, which consists of unstable oxygen molecules (containing three oxygen atoms). Ozone chemically reacts with odor-causing molecules to oxidize residues and remove the odors. Once the deodorization process is complete, ozone quickly reverts to the typical oxygen molecule, leaving no residues.

The decontamination of a home or business due to trauma, sewage backups, chemical spills, hoarding, or other biohazards can be both dangerous and emotional. Specialized training and experience is key when choosing a cleanup company to resolve these circumstances.

If I could rate this company and the owners higher than a 5 star I would.

If I could rate this company and the owners higher than a 5 star I would. I lost my home to a house fire and about the only thing I was able to retrieve was a oil painting of my father. It smelled awful so I turned to Heather at SERVPRO of Dane County West in Verona. She was able to get the smell out after using their ozone chamber. So thankful for her efforts and unbelievable customer service. Highly recommend to anyone that needs fire or water restoration.

SERVPRO SHOWS UP WHEN LIFE IS STRESSFUL

SERVPRO of Dane County West and the owners Jim and Heather have done a wonderful job for the many clients I have referred to them. "Responsive", " so helpful and kind", and "hard working" are just a few of the comments I have received about their service. SERVPRO usually shows up when life is stressful--flooding, mold, fire--not fun stuff...I cannot think of better people to call than Jim and Heather when life throws you a curve ball. Highly recommend their service.

Very friendly and helpful, and worked seamlessly with our insurance agent.

After a leak in our refrigerator, we were so thankful that SERVPRO of Dane County West came, pulled out the damaged flooring, and got fans and dehumidifiers going to dry any remaining water.  After my children accidentally changed the settings on the dehumidifier, they promptly returned my phone call to talk me through resetting the machine.  Very friendly and helpful, and worked seamlessly with our insurance agent. Thank you!

I highly recommend calling SERVPRO of Dane County West.

I was extremely satisfied with the work performed by SERVPRO of Dane County West at my residence.  Their first visit was to resolve water related issues to carpet and drywall.  The staff was fast, efficient, polite and friendly.  The second visit was to put everything back in order: drywall replacement, carpet pad, touch-up paint and furniture return. 

I don't wish a bad situation on anyone but if one occurs, I highly recommend calling SERVPRO of Dane County West.  When I called my insurance company to report the incident, the first thing they said was to call SERVPRO.  I told them I already did.  I don't know if all SERVPRO offices are this good but SERVPRO of Dane County West is.  Thank you to all.  

The attention to detail made all the difference.

My experience with SERVPRO of Dane County West was outstanding. Imagine coming home on a Saturday to the most horrific sewer smell coming from my basement only to discover that the septic had backed up into our home from the storm. The SERVPRO owners sent 2 professionals over and had everything cleaned up in a matter of hours. They worked extremely hard and efficiently in some disgusting conditions and in addition to all of that they were polite and showed concern for our home.  When we received our bill it had a hand written note from the franchise owner. Needless to say I was impressed with the entire experience and would most definitely recommend SERVPRO of Dane County.

I love that the owners are involved in the community and local chambers.

SERVPRO of Dane County West was referred to me by my insurance agent when the first floor of my house flooded. The technicians who came in to diagnose the problem were very professional, knowledgeable and proactive. They deployed many dryers and removed many old, damaged layers of flooring in my kitchen. When they left, the job site (my precious kitchen!) was very clean. The owner was onsite supervising and was very helpful and knowledgeable coordinating with my insurance company. I love that the owners are involved in the community and local chambers. Strongly recommend their services!

A Verona, WI residence had a sump pump fail causing extensive loss.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

days, like in this picture above, it’s important to remove the toilet and replace the water
damaged floor.
