Water Damage Cleanup in Indianapolis

8/25/2020 (Permalink)

This picture shows water on the floor with our telephone number, 317-243-3149 We're open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We'll make your water damage "Like it never even happened."

With the heavy rains and storms of summertime, we get many calls for flood damage cleanup  and restoration in the Indianapolis area. While we see homes flooded from outside water, such as rivers and streams, most of the water-damaged homes we see and clean up are from water within the home. In either case, it's usually a good idea to let the professionals extract the water, clean up, and restore your flood-damaged home. 

How Does the Water Get in?

There are many ways water can get into your home or business and damage it. Toilets, sinks, dishwashers, and washing machines can slowly leak behind walls, under floors, and inside cabinets. Sewers can back up into basements and through the drains on lower levels of homes. Rainwater from a massive storm can blow into cracks and crevices around your windows and doors, causing water damage that may not be discovered quickly, allowing mold to develop and cause further damage. During the winter months, pipes exposed to cold temperatures can freeze and burst.

Call us at the First Sign of Damage

A slow, subtle water leak behind a wall or under a floor can often be much worse and cause more damage than a sudden flood of water from say, an ice maker line breaking. A sudden quick surge of clean water onto the floor can quickly be removed and dried while the slower and undetectable leak may go on for days or weeks before noticed. In this case, the clean water from a slow leak then becomes unsanitary containing harmful contaminants. Sometimes these leaks are noticed by the smell of bacteria and mold growth or soft spots in the flooring.  

Knowledgeable and Experienced

If your home or business does happen to suffer from water damage, you can trust the experts at SERVPRO of Indianapolis West will respond immediately to your call. We have the knowledge and experience to handle all types of water damage emergencies.

Whether from a outside flood, a backed up sewer, a roof leak, or a frozen pipe that has burst, or an overflowing bathtub or toilet, we've seen it all and can handle any size job. SERVPRO of Indianapolis West has the equipment, and the expertise to handle any size disaster, anytime, and anywhere.

Do

-Shut off the source of the water. 

-Turn off electricity

-Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and soaking up with towels. 

-Wipe excess water from wood furniture.

-Put aluminum foil in between furniture legs and carpet. 

Don't

-Enter a room with standing water. There could be a risk of electrical shock. Disconnect all power first.

Don't Battle A Fire On Your Own

Homeowners don’t usually know where to start and what to do after experiencing a fire emergency for the first time. Most people never have to go through the hardship of having a fire destroy or damage their home or business. But those who do understand the difficulty and challenges a fire can bring. SERVPRO of Indianapolis West will help you get back the life you had before the flames took control.

Relocating Short-Term

Most often, even a small fire will displace the family from their home. The smoke and soot residue is dangerous and usually covers everything inside the house. The smoke moves throughout the structure and blankets all of the contents.

Even if the fire was contained and put out relatively quickly, hot smoke migrates to colder areas around the home and can affect other property levels. Smoke can travel through plumbing systems, pipes and go up several stories.

Living with family members or renting short-term is the best way to proceed after fire damage. Removing your family from the dangerous environment allows SERVPRO of Indianapolis West to thoroughly clean and restore your home.

Contents Restoration

Taking care of your home and your belongings is critical. Usually, it is best to carefully pack all contents and move them to our warehouse, where they are inventoried, cleaned, and restored. We keep them safe until the home is ready, then transfer them back for you. This allows for better access to clean and restore the house and eliminates secondary damage during the restoration process.

Structure Restoration

We will remove and replace any part of the structure that was burned or damaged beyond the point of restoring. Our technicians carefully clean the walls, ceilings, and floors to remove and smoke and soot. The furnace and A/C unit will need to be cleaned thoroughly and ductwork inside the walls.

Call SERVPRO of Indianapolis West

If you should suffer a house fire, call the fire cleanup experts at SERVPRO of Indianapolis West, 317-243-3149, for 24-hour emergency service. At SERVPRO of Indianapolis West, we have specialized equipment, professional training, and certifications that allow us to restore your home to its pre-fire condition.

Summertime Storms In Indianapolis

7/27/2020 (Permalink)

This picture is of lightning in the air with the words SERVPRO, always here to help, and our phone number. SERVPRO of Indianapolis West is one call away to help restore your property from storm damage.

If you live in the mid-west or in particular Indianapolis, you know we have all four seasons and their extremes. In winter, we get ice storms, frozen water lines, and sometimes heavy snow. Summertime in Indy brings heat and humidity and many different severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. The summer heat and humidity build through the day, spawning thunderstorms that can drop several inches of water in a short time.

Water Backup  

These heavy and sudden rains often overwhelm the sewer systems and cause flash flooding. Homeowners sometimes experience water backups in their basements and crawlspace because the sump pumps cannot keep up or fail after being inundated with so much water in such a short time.

If you have standing water (flooding) in your basement, disconnect the main electrical switch to your home. If you don't know how to do that, call a professional or your local fire department to help you. If you are in doubt about your basement's electrical safety, it's best to stay out of it! Remember, "SAFETY, FIRST!" 

Heavy Winds & Lightning

These severe thunderstorms can also cause more than just water damage. Dangerous winds and lightning are also components of these storms. Heavy winds can topple trees, remove shingles, and siding from your home. Even the windows to your home or cars can be broken from flying debris hurling through the air. 

A lightning strike can cause a power surge and damage your appliances. That same strike can overheat and melt the protective sleeve of the wiring inside your walls, causing a fire to break out, in your attic, and other hidden areas. The National Fire Protection Association estimates that U.S. local fire departments responded to an estimated average of 22,600  fires started by lightning per year.

Weekend Water Damage

7/24/2020 (Permalink)

This picture is of a laundry room with water pouring out of the washer onto the floor. We're one call away to help save the day and make it "Like it never even happened."

Waking up to water damage on a Saturday morning is never a good start to the day. Our weekends are busy with chores and getting the kids off to practice. The last thing you want to deal with is unwanted water in your home. That's where the professional at SERVPRO of Indianapolis West can help. Our water restoration crews are always available on weekends to come to save the day at your home or business.

We received a call on a Saturday morning from a homeowner in Speedway, IN, with a busted water supply line to the washing machine. Water sprayed throughout the laundry room, and the homeowner said the drywall and floors were saturated. Unfortunately, the laundry room was on the second floor of the home, and you know what that means? Yes, the water drains down and affects the ceiling and carpet below.

SERVPRO To The Rescue

It's good that the Speedway homeowner called us because this type of water damage is something we see and deal with all the time. Our crews have the experience and knowledge to immediately mitigate the problem. We have advanced and specialized equipment to detect where hidden water may be and remove it to dry your property fast and efficiently.

This particular call came in at 8:30 am Saturday morning, and by 10am, our crews were on-site to begin. Water and fire damages don't always wait for regular business hours. That's why we always have teams standing by to react to your call. We're always open for business, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and even on holidays. Getting the water out as fast as possible and drying your property is critical to lessen the damages and essential to a healthy home.

Check The Machine And Change The Lines

It's essential to check around your washing machine for any signs of water leakage. This homeowner's water damage was due to a busted supply line, but there are many ways a washing machine can fail and cause damage to your Indianapolis home. Check the water hookup, water drainage, and around the door for signs of water leaking.

Pressurized water supply lines are one of the leading reasons that a home may suffer a flood. Take time to inspect your washing machine supply lines. It's recommended to replace them every five years, and especially if they appear cracked or show signs of deterioration. If you have the rubber hoses, you should consider replacing those with more reliable metal braided lines. You could be saving yourself time and money, and your home from damage.

If You Need Water Removal

If you should suffer water damage from a faulty washing machine, a broken water pipe, appliance failure, or sewer backup, it's essential to quickly call us to ensure the water is removed and the home cleaned. The longer you wait and the more time passes, the more damage the water can cause, and not to mention the evil four-letter word, "mold" may begin to grow.

Whether it's in the middle of the night, on the weekend, or during the holidays, SERVPRO of Indianapolis West is always available to handle any water damage emergency. SERVPRO of Indianapolis West can help clean up the water damage and return your home back to normal. Call 317-243-3149, or click here if your Indianapolis area, Speedway, or Clermont home should suffer water damage.
