Impressive Resumes and Proven Results Are Why SERVPRO’s Montgomery Customers Rely on Our Response
Building a premier disaster restoration company for the residents of Montgomery requires investments in both human resources and top of the line equipment. Our team takes great pride in the capability we developed to adjust our response level to meet the intensity and complexity of the losses members of our community experience. Speed and professionalism are the hallmarks of efficient and effective mitigation and remediation provision, and we offer both 24/7 for any water, fire, mold, and storm damage scenarios.
If your home in Montgomery suffers water damage, you are not alone. Home insurance industry estimates indicate 20 percent of claims involve water as the culprit. Although damage to the structural components and contents of a home is common, we understand your scenario is unique and that experiencing the harm water can do is stressful and demoralizing. Our focus is on resolving your water crisis fast, with compassion and professionalism.
Some water emergencies are sudden, such as when a supply line to a sink or major appliance bursts, sending gallons of water spreading from space to space in your home in a short time. Other water losses are less dramatic yet just as devastating, illustrated by the devastation s small, unnoticed leak can do over a longer time. SERVPRO’s Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) are up to the challenges of any water loss, personalizing our approach to meet the specific needs presented in your scenario.
Our goal is to respond fast, arriving with the crew and equipment necessary to mitigate further spread of the water damage and to begin remediation efforts as soon as possible after your call. Rapid and thorough water removal is the first task, and our commercial-grade pumps and extractors are highly efficient and effective in completing that phase, including using thermal scanning devices to locate any hidden water and employing controlled demolition techniques like weep holes and flood cuts for access. Then our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained managers and technicians use data gathered from moisture reading tools to devise a scientifically-based drying plan.
When fire damages your Montgomery residence, you need all hands on deck to respond fast to the many tasks required to make it “Like it never even happened.” Cleanup after a fire pushes nearly every homeowner to the breaking point unless professionals assist. Conventional cleaning techniques often make the situation worse, and research-based approaches and innovative products and tools in the hands of our experts have the best chance of success.
SERVPRO offers homeowners the opportunity to access multiple restoration interventions from our full-service team during a fire damage recovery, ranging from water removal and drying to deep cleaning deodorization to rebuilding. The managers and technicians comprising the crew responding to your crisis hold certifications from the IICRC in many specialties, permitting the overall project to move forward with the need to line up different contractors.
Managing the toxic and corrosive residues after a fire also requires innovative equipment, all available from our extensive inventory and stocked on our signature green service vehicles. Containing the airborne soot in work areas by sealing plastic sheeting around the affected space and using negative pressure air scrubbers improves air quality and reduces the prevalence of odor-bearing particles. Our practices prevent drift of soot, often allowing you and your loved ones to remain in unaffected spaces of your home safely during the restoration process.
Mold clean up in Montgomery often links to hidden water damage or an incompletely resolved water loss. The first signs that a more massive colony of fungal organisms might be multiplying behind a wall or over a ceiling are often dark staining and a distinctive musty odor. Seeking professional advice for a mold outbreak is a sensible choice because the extent of the infestation is hard to determine without specialized equipment and limiting the spread of mold spores during removal is critical.
SERVPRO employs the research-based protocols developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for mold remediation. Critical elements include containment, removal, and disinfection. We also can assist with the underlying cause, helping our customers repair the leak, moderate humidity, or eliminate the seepage that provides mold spores with the moisture needed to grow into an extensive, structure-damaging fungal invasion.
Our Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) use barriers and negative pressure air scrubbers to contain the area with active mold colonies. The contaminated atmosphere inside the containment zone is circulated through HEPA filters and exhausted to the outside. Technicians wear personal protective equipment (PPE) for safety and to prevent the spread of the moldy residues to other areas of your home.
Scrapers and brushes remove mold from solid surfaces, and advanced techniques like soda blasting scour mold from porous materials. HEPA-filtered vacuums and EPA-registered antimicrobial products collect the debris and treat infected surfaces to inhibit mold rebounding. Mold spores cannot be eliminated, but when their quantities are brought back to normal levels, and moisture is controlled, their growth is negligible.
When high winds and torrential precipitation races across Alabama, fueled by tropical weather systems or thunderstorms, your home in Montgomery risks substantial flood damage. Wind shear and falling poles and trees rip off and crush roofs, shatter glass, and damage siding. Precipitation rushes in, soaking structural components and the contents of your home. The flooding is far beyond the capacity of anyone to manage without commercial-grade equipment and IICRC Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) training.
SERVPRO has both the equipment and the trained and experienced technicians needed to conquer the challenge of severe storm damage. We tarp and board up the exterior damage as quickly as possible while our managers assess the interior and plan for mitigation and remediation of the water and flood damage. We scale our response to the level needed in your home, bringing in additional equipment and employees if indicated.
Water removal completes efficiently with submersible pumps and truck-mounted extractors. If electricity is out, we use gas or generator power, avoiding any delays. Water trapped in cavities releases after we make flood cuts or use other controlled demolition techniques. We clean and disinfect the flooded spaces, drying them out entirely with strategically placed and continuously adjusted air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers. When remediation efforts complete, we can provide wrap-around rebuilding services.
SERVPRO of Montgomery is with you every step of the way, assessing, planning, mitigating, remediating, and restoring your home after a disaster. One call to (334) 273-0992 begins a partnership with our highly-qualified team.
