Flood in Casper

Flood in Casper

Recently, there was a “micro burst” thunderstorm event in Casper. It rained 2-3 inches in a very short period of time. Because central Wyoming gets very little annual precipitation, our drainage systems are not built to handle short, intense storms with heavy rainfall. When these storms happen, they can flood our streets, underpasses, and even homes and businesses. This photo is looking out the back door of a home in Casper. The rainwater drained into the back porch area, filling it up, and causing water damage in the home.

Frost Free Break

Frost Free Break

This is a frost-free faucet break in Glenrock WY. They had a particularly cold winter, and temperatures dipped below zero degrees several times during the season. When spring time came, they turned on the faucet to water their lawn. Because the break occurred in the pipe forward of the valve, water began to leak in a hidden area inside the wall, and worked its way out to several rooms in the basement.

Apartment Complex fire in Casper, WY

Apartment Complex fire in Casper, WY

When a fire happens, smoke can move and behave in bizarre ways. There was a fire in an apartment complex here in Casper, Wyoming. The fire started on the floor below this apartment. The fire created high air pressure, and pushed smoke through the plumbing. On the left side of the toilet in this photo, you can see a black “flare” mark. The smoke forced its way from under the toilet, into the rest of the bathroom.

Containment

Containment

When working on a mold job, there are many important steps to take to make sure the problem is properly addressed. A key first step is establishing containment of the affected area. Mold spores are very light, and can easily float around your home, contaminating other areas. Establishing a solid containment with negative air pressure prevents mold spores and mycotoxins from migrating from the affected area to unaffected areas. We use spring tension posts, heavy duty plastic sheeting, and tape to create most containment walls and doors. In the example in this photo, we have added a piece of wood at the bottom of the containment door. This helps keep the bottom of the door in contact with the floor, so we can maintain a good seal on the containment. Precautions such as containment and negative air pressure keeps the mold from spreading, and limits the amount of work that is necessary to remediate the mold damage.

Drying Equipment

Drying Equipment

This piece of equipment is called the Firebird Compact 20.  It creates heat to help dry parts of structures that have deeply-bound water and are difficult to dry, such as tile floors. During the recent freeze we had in Casper, pipes were bursting in many homes, affecting a variety of materials. By using the Firebird heater, we are able to speed up the drying process and help save materials.

Bathroom fire in Casper Wy.

Bathroom fire in Casper Wy.

The source of this smoke damage was an exhaust fan in the bathroom. The fan overheated and caught on fire. Most of the heavy smoke damage was limited to the bathroom. The rest of the house had light smoke, and was able to be restored with proper cleaning products and techniques. With this type of cleaning, we can keep on the contents on-site and clean them there. We also used an air scrubber with a HEPA filter to help remove any smoke particles in the air.

Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Commercial Carpet Cleaning

In this picture, our team was hired to clean carpets at a hotel in Casper, WY. With carpet cleaning, people usually think first of the carpets in their own home. But proper maintenance of carpets and flooring in your business is just as important. Clean, vibrant-looking carpets and tile floors make your business more appealing, and helps keep customers coming in. Commercial carpet cleaning also makes your carpets last longer, by removing abrasive soils that could cause premature wear. It is definitely more cost-effective to have your carpets and flooring professionally-cleaned than it is to replace them frequently. From carpeting to vinyl to ceramic tile floors, we provide services to maintain most floors. For more information, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Casper, at 307-235-6558.

Mold Remediation in Douglas, WY

Mold Remediation in Douglas, WY

A technician is remediating mold damage in a crawl space at a church in Douglas, WY. There are many reasons that mold could occur in a crawl space. If there was water damage on the main floor, and water seeped through the floor and wasn’t properly dried, the wet structure could begin to grow mold. Also, humidity caused by damp earth can condense on building materials in a crawl space, which can soak into the wood, bringing the moisture content of the lumber to an unsafe level. If conditions such as these are not addressed properly, it could lead to mold growth.

If you develop mold in the crawlspace of your home or business, SERVPRO of Casper can properly remediate the problem. Our technicians can bring your crawlspace back to a safe state. Call us anytime at 307-235-6558 for a free consultation.

Water in a shopping center in Casper, WY

Water in a shopping center in Casper, WY

One of our certified technicians is documenting water damage in a commercial restroom. A water heater tank ruptured inside the ceiling of a commercial plaza in Casper Wyoming. The water affected two separate business suites. The walls, floor, and contents were all wet. In this picture, you can see the many layers of paint that have blistered. When the paint is thick on the walls, the water will flow down the wall between the paint and drywall. The paint will hold the water and cause it to bubble up. The water will either remain trapped in the blister, or soak into the drywall. In cases like this, we puncture the bubbles in order to drain the water, then peel back the paint and expose the drywall. This is necessary in order to remove any free water from the damaged areas, and speed the drying of the walls.

In this picture, you can see one of our technicians wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). When performing mold remediation, it is very important to wear the appropriate PPE to prevent exposure. It is equally important to contain moldy areas, and moldy materials that are being removed. Mishandling moldy materials can possibly spread mold spores to areas that are unaffected. The technicians at SERVPRO of Casper are trained and experienced in mold removal. They can ensure that mold damage in your home or business is cleaned up safely and properly.

Kitchen Fire in Casper, WY

Kitchen Fire in Casper, WY

This was a fire damage in Casper Wyoming. The source of the fire was a pan of grease on the stove that caught on fire. The homeowner moved the pan to the kitchen sink, and attempted to extinguish it by turning on the faucet. The water caused the fire to flash violently, catching the curtains on fire. The fire was so intense that it burnt most of the kitchen and spread smoke throughout the home. We packed up the contents in the house, and moved them to our facility for cleaning. We also performed cleaning and deodorization in the smoke-damaged portions of the home. After the re-construction was done, we moved the clean contents back into the home.

Commercial desiccant at a commercial water loss

Commercial desiccant at a commercial water loss

In this picture, we have a large desiccant dehumidifier drying out a commercial building. SERVPRO of Casper was contacted when the building’s heating unit failed, causing the pipes to freeze. The entire building had water damage spread over three levels. Commercial desiccant dehumidifiers are capable of producing the driest air of all dehumidifiers. This allows the structure to be dried as quickly as possible. In this picture, you can see the desiccant dehumidifier, and the large generator needed to power it.

Whether you have water damage in a single room of your home, or throughout a large, multi-level commercial building, SERVPRO of Casper has the tools and experience to get the water out quickly, and get you back into a dry building.

This is a parking garage exit at a commercial water loss in Casper, Wyoming. The heating unit for this multi-level office building failed, causing the pipes to freeze and burst. Rising outdoor temperatures took care of the wall of icicles blocking this garage. But extensive work was needed in the office space above the garage to stabilize the property, and prevent further damage. SERVPRO of Casper technicians responded immediately, and dried out the building in a rapid manner.

Mold Remediation in Casper, WY

Mold Remediation in Casper, WY

This is a water heater leak that occurred in Casper. Because it wasn’t discovered for an extended period of time, the walls started to grow mold. You always want to make sure you check your water heater and surrounding areas periodically, so you can quickly address any leaks or failures. This kind of microbial growth only takes a little over a week to grow. Water heaters can have a slow leak, and continue to provide normal hot water without any indicator that something is wrong. Because of this, you will never know something is happening until you go into the closet and see the damage. If something like this happens with your water heater, SERVPRO of Casper has trained professionals that can take care of it properly.

We have the experience and the team to make your water damage "Like it never even happened."

Water Damage in Casper, WY

Water Damage in Casper, WY

Customer had a leaky pipe in the bathroom upstairs. As this was an older house, most of the walls were made of plaster. We did struggle a little to get the ceiling dry and had to remove a portion of the ceiling, but we installed a plastic tent and attached some lay flat ducting to it. With this, we were able to inject the hot, dry air from the dehumidifier into the tent to speed the drying of the area.

When it comes to mold remediation, there are multiple steps that are important. Containment must be set up to prevent the spread of mold spores and mycotoxins. Negative air pressure with HEPA filtration must be established in the containment to further prevent cross-contamination unaffected materials and contents must be removed from the area. It's very easy for mold spores to spread and cause damage in additional areas, so when there is a mold problem, it is important to call the professionals at SERVPRO of Casper right away.

Water Damage in a House

Water Damage in a House

The customer has a Summer home that he goes to in the cold months. This Winter was colder than normal. The heating system failed, and a water line broke in the ceiling as a result. The home filled with water, which froze and created a sheet of ice on all of the floors. Some of the water inside the attic spilled out through the front of the house, causing a huge ice formation at the front door. In order to dry the home, it had to be first thawed out. SERVPRO of Casper installed a diesel-fired furnace outside the home, pumping warm air into the structure. As it thawed, we were able to remove the water, and dry the structure out thoroughly.

Secondary Damage in a House

Secondary Damage in a House

This home was vacant for an extended period of time, and they ended up having a water damage. No one had checked on the house regularly.

SERVPRO of Casper went in and remediated the loss and brought the structure back to a safe and livable condition.
