What we don't do is let it become an embarrassment while parked at a job site.

A91 was back in church

10/25/2021 (Permalink)

Two air movers placed for drying water damage in a church.  One is number A 91 Number A 91 helping out a church again.

Air mover A 91 was placed in a church water damage on its first time ever used.  In later Sept. 2020 it was underneath a baptistry.  A 91 was brand new then.

One year later, early Oct. 2021, A 91 was back in church at a small water damage.

Did you know they sometimes put water heaters in attics???

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, quickly extracted the water and set up drying equipment in this West Waco church.

There was literally a wedding happening the next day.

Ultimately, it was not necessary to remove any materials and things dried up nicely.

It was a pleasant coincidence A 91 was placed in a church again one year later.  Heck, now we may look for it when we have future churches needing help with water damage.

SERVPRO of Waco has been helping churches and many folks in the greater Waco and Central Texas area with property damage for over 20 years.

We'd be pleased to help you and yours' too.

Live...from the attic....

10/25/2021 (Permalink)

Small water heater setting alone in an attic space Small, damaged water heater located in the attic above the restrooms.

The forgotten water heater in the attic.

Over 20 years, the management changes, the maintenance people change, etc. and it just keeps doing its job.

Until one day, it just pops.

Fortunately, when this small water heater in West Waco, over the area restrooms, popped it's pressure release valve people were still around and heard it.

Still by the time the water got shut off, plenty got wet.

What if no one had been there at the time?  Small water heater or not, the water pipe was regular sized and running.  Draining straight from the water tower you might say.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, was on the job shortly afterward and got the situation under control and dried.

No loss of building function at all.

During our 20 years of service in the greater Waco and Central Texas area, we've helped thousands of folks through property damage issues.

We'd be pleased to help you.

The Spider Box

10/25/2021 (Permalink)

Green power box with many cords plugged into it sitting upon a dryer A power distribution box "spider box" is used to access more electric power from the 220 volt plug normally used by a dryer.

Storms can bring large amounts of water into a home or building.

After the standing water is extracted, drying equipment is used to get rid of the dampness.

This can take a many pieces of electrically powered equipment many times, as in this facility which suffered broken water pipes in the attic as a result of the historic Texas freeze.

In this Landon Branch facility, SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, used this power distribution box, more commonly called a "spider box" to get additional electric circuits.  It plugs into the wall plug for an electric dryer.  This gets access to the 220 volts there.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, has been serving folks in the greater Waco and Central Texas area for over 20 years with property damage issues.

Water In and Water Out

10/15/2021 (Permalink)

Fire department hose and SERVPRO of Waco hose laying side by side in hallway of a fire damaged building SERVPRO of Waco began fire damage restoration service with emergency water extraction as soon as the all clear was given to enter the fire scene.

Most large fires are put out with water.

In this fire, in Waco's Parkdale Viking Hills area, firemen extinguished a fire started by a lighting strike on the fourth floor level.

The fire department grey hose was left in place afterward for a while in case of flare ups.  Seemed like a great idea to us.

SERVPRO of Waco, a fire damage restoration company, was called in while the fire was underway.  As soon as the all clear was given, SERVPRO of Waco began water extraction and debris removal of the affected areas.

The green hose pictured is our hose carrying water extracted from the scene back out of the building.

While one office in the building needed relocated, the building was quickly made ready for normal functions, with a little adapting of course.

SERVPRO of Waco has been helping folks in the greater Waco and Central Texas area through fire damage restoration for over 20 years.

Let us help you.

Frozen Pipes

10/10/2021 (Permalink)

Air Mover fan sitting on a plywood deck floor in an attic Drying out the attic after a burst water pipe.

The Quiet Storm

The Texas Polar Vortex was calm, quiet and very cold.

It caused thousands of split and burst water pipes, which, for the most part, were very quiet too.

All the burst and split pipes resulted in water, usually large amounts of water, happening in a variety of  possible locations inside homes and buildings.

Especially bad were the burst water pipes in attics.  Some of those pipes had been in place, with no problems, for decades.

Of course gravity will bring water from a burst or split water pipe over head down to the next level(s).  Perhaps by more than one path.

The air mover pictured was placed in the attic of the water damage in a group home in the Waco Landon Branch area.

SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, ended up removing all the insulation from the affected attic area, while saving the ceiling drywall and all the drywall on the living level. 

This resulted in quick recovery of the affected area and no serious interruption of the home residents normal routine.

SERVPRO of Waco has helped thousands of folks in the greater Waco and Central Texas area for over 20 years.

We be honored to help you as well.

How can theirs be real??

10/5/2021 (Permalink)

They've been in business for 15 minutes and have 100 FIVE STAR reviews?? 

Who are they kidding?

It appears some companies in the restoration industry are paying for 5 star internet reviews, giving a price discounts for 5 star internet reviews and/or just having friends & relatives, who have never used the company, give 5 star internet reviews.

At SERVPRO of Waco, a restoration company, our internet reviews are truly from customers we've provided service.

SERVPRO of Waco has served the greater Waco and Central Texas community for 20+ years.

Our track record is very solid with excellent service to thousands of folks right here.
