Insulation damaged with soot after a fire.

Soot Damaged Insulation after a Apartment Fire.

SERVPRO of Longview/Kelso was called when a fire evacuated and displaced a large multi-family apartment complex in Long beach, WA. The apartment building endured significant structural damage and needed extensive repairs.

Soot damage and smoke damage can both indicate some type of structural damage after a fire. This is especially common after a electrical fire such as this one. Since the fire starts inside the wall and quickly spreads out through any access point like a outlet. SERVPRO will look for streaks near the outlet and soot damage moving up the wall from the outlets to determine whether it's necessary to open up the walls to look for more structural damage.

Flood cut after a flood in Kalama, WA.

What is a Flood Cut?

What is a flood cut?

A flood cut is when the SERVPRO professional has to cut out the drywall from your property.  The cut is made several inches above where the flood damage stopped, so that’s why it’s called a flood cut.  It is done so that we can remove the drywall and address any moisture issues behind the actual wall.

Is a flood cut always necessary?

Not necessarily. In fact, if the wall water damage is clean water, that is water that doesn’t contain bacteria or harmful pathogens, our goal is to save the wall. Now that is a different story, if the affected wall has been tainted by sewage water from a backed-up sewer line and your home requires sewage backup cleaning.  In those instances, the rule is if it touches it, it must be removed.

Unknown mold growth in commercial building.

Is mold lurking on your commercial property?

Molds are part of the natural environment, and can be found everywhere, indoors and outdoors. However, mold is not something to take lightly when you own or manage a commercial property.

Mold infestations can be caused by minor water intrusions, like a slow roof leak or loose plumbing. Mold often times is also found in dark areas with reduced airflow and higher levels of humidity, making your commercial building more susceptible. In this picture a slow leak in the ceiling caused unsafe conditions for guest and staff. The beams here were exposed after the drywall was removed, uncovering excessive mold damage. Better left to the professionals, call SERVPRO of Longview/Kelso today for your mold remediation (360)703-3884!
