Inside the Vault

At SERVPRO of Indian Wells we encounter situations that require some discretion through-out the course of our duties.

In this picture we see a how a roofing issue has created a water damage at a local bank. The inside of the banks vault has sustained standard water damage concerns, Wet carpet and drywall. We extracted the water and placed the appropriate drying equipment until the site was dried.

If left unattended the resulting water could cause a mold issue within 24-72 hours. When water damage is left to its own devices it can create additional secondary damage. This damage can go uncovered because the insurance company looks at this situation a potential negligence. Make sure you get your emergency addressed in a timely manner, by a qualified restoration or mitigation expert.

Repaired broken window at a business

At SERVPRO of Indian Wells we work on commercial projects all the time. Sometimes the projects can be large in scale , a flooded country club, or they can be minor, a broken rear office window. Either way we are there to help when the client needs us.

In this picture we see a shot of a rear office window that had been repaired after a break-in. Besides securing the building for safety concerns, the other issue that is presented is broken glass. If the window is broken from the outside chances are that there will be glass inside if the room is carpeted, even low-rise commercial carpeting, there is no way to guarantee that all the glass has been removed. So unfortunately the occupant may have to replace the carpet because of glass shards that are lodged in the fibers of the carpet.

Always work with a professional when dealing with any damages that require restoration. Most companies will inspect and offer verbal opinions on what may be done.

When the 'Sky' falls in-doors, call SERVPRO for help.

SERVPRO was contacted by a large medical office that had experienced a water damage over the course of the weekend.

An overhead sprinkler riser failed and the resulting water damage affected the drop-down ceiling. The ceiling collapsed under its own weight, which is common.

Placement of drying equipment and monitoring of this process, We then conducted a heavy-cleaning based on the type of business and the need for certain levels of cleanliness.
