Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Archived General Blog Posts

We put our pictures in all kinds of places and in all kinds of things.

While most new pictures seem to go into cell phones and digital cameras, rarely to be seen again, most of us have old ones which are on some form of paper.

Of course, cardboard boxes, loosely folded closed, are one of the main way pictures are stored.

Paper stored inside paper which is barely sealed.  

Water is absorbed by the paper and cardboard and smoke from even a little bitty fire can get all over the pictures.

Plastic containers which slide under beds are a great way to store...and possible save them.  In closets too.

Should you suffer a fire damage or water damage loss, pictures, and other documents, which are in plastic containers with the lid snapped shut rarely suffer damage, unless burned directly.

Next time you have them out for anything...into a plastic container and snap shut the lid!

Contact SERVPRO of Waco for all your fire damage and water damage needs in Waco and Central Texas.

We'll be glad to help.

Job Site Rainbow Picture

11/5/2017 (Permalink)

A cool rainbow and other colorful things.

Resisting all temptation tying our service to the appearance of a rainbow, it was a great rainbow and deserved a picture.  The cell phone camera (or the photographer) doesn't do it justice.

The customers' attractive building and the wild green vehicle made a nice setting for the picture.

This is a pretty weather picture, but obviously after a bit of rainy weather.

Our service on this job was not related to the weather. 

Sometimes you have to take a moment and enjoy the rainbow.

We do, however, roll out in all kinds of weather. Sometimes, that is delayed a bit until travel is safe, but we do come shortly after that.

As part of our service, we do strive to help folks move from the stress of the damage, recover at least some of their sense of humor or calm, and be able to move forward with a sense of confidence things are going to get back to normal...and maybe even look/work out better than before.

You can count on SERVPRO of Waco for help when you need it.
