Initial Inspection

Initial Inspection

The initial inspection of the property allows our crews to determine what has been affected by the fire/smoke/water/mold damage and what steps need to be taken to restore your home. In this photo, you can see our Production Manager meeting with a homeowner after walking through the property. SERVPRO of Benton, Jasper, Newton and Southern Lake Counties always walks through the property to assess the damage because often there is more damage than is visible to the naked eye.

The Production Manager was able to dispatch several crews to complete the mitigation quickly and efficiently because the initial walk-through allowed her and the customer to determine all of the necessary steps to restore the property and make it "Like it never even happened."

Commercial Water Damage Training

Commercial Water Damage Training

We take training very seriously here at SERVPRO of Benton, Jasper, Newton and Southern Lake Counties. Above is training of a new employee on the best practices of water extraction. The extraction wand is one of the most useful tools that our employees use. This employee is correctly moving the wand from a forward to back motion that helps gather excess moisture into one isolated area. The wand comes in several different sizes for all types of extraction jobs and connects to a central pump inside our water vans. Our water vans can be placed up to 200 feet away for water extraction, which means less noise and less crowding when you are conducting business.

Floor Drying Systems

Floor Drying Systems

This photo shows our specialty floor drying system in action. It is used to vacuum out air from the grout between the tiles so that the floor can be saved. Both the insurance adjuster and customer were very concerned about the tile floor because it continues from the bathroom into the hallway and kitchen. The adjuster did not want to replace it unless absolutely necessary because replacement would come at a high cost. The homeowner did not want to live through a several room home renovation. Both were ecstatic that we were able to use our equipment to save the floor.

Containment to Protect Unaffected Level During Mold Remediation

SERVPRO of Benton, Jasper, Newton and Southern Lake Counties technicians are trained to protect your home while we work. In this home, the main level was affected by mold after a water damage went undetected. The crews erected containment to prevent mold spores from spreading to the upper level, which was unaffected. They also set an air scrubber to remove mold spores from the air because they can become airborne during remediation. The homeowner was thrilled to see the precautions our crews took to prevent the damage from spreading. If you suspect mold is in your home, call us at 219-779-7577

One of our technicians is unloading the van after cleaning a house in Saint John, Indiana.

Her bacon continued to cook and left a greasy black soot on everything in her kitchen. Our technician was able to use SERVPRO chemicals, which are specially formulated to remove soot, to get her house back to preloss condition. Now that the house has been restored, our technician is unloading the van and restocking it for the next job.
