Community TreeFest

Community TreeFest

Each year, the Bloomsburg Theater Ensemble is benefited by a project called TREEFEST. Christmas trees are donated by area tree farms, these are placed at the Caldwell Consistory in Bloomsburg, Pa. Businesses and groups can then pay for each tree to be decorated or can decorate the trees themselves. Food and gifts are welcome additions to be placed under the tree. The trees, food and gifts are donated to needy families the first week of December. SERVPRO of Columbia, Montour & Sullivan has participated for the last 5 years, by decorating a tree, supplying non-perishable food, providing gifts and the decorations on the tree. The trees that we have decorated have been in memory of Tom and Dorothy’s granddaughter, Camryn, who loved Minnie Mouse.

Hidden Mold

Hidden Mold

Mold that has established itself behind wallpaper is often overlooked until it gets bad enough to stain through the paper. By that time, the health and well-being of the homeowners may be compromised, and the wallboard behind the wallpaper may be damaged beyond repair. The only way SERVPRO is able to remove the mold is to first remove the wallpaper.

Slow Drip

Do you have a slow drip from your shower fixture? This slow drip can become a BIG problem.. This shower fixture started spraying water, which ran from the second floor bathroom down to the first floor living room...

Got Water?

Got Water?

The remaining rooms in the home had to be restored through drywall installation, painting, etc.

Every water disaster is different, from the amount of water to the level of contamination of the water. Each scenario requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same.

What is lurking in your walls? 

What is lurking in your walls? 

It only takes a small water leak, or even excess humidity, for mold to form in your Bloomsburg home or business. Then, mold can spread quickly through the property in as little as 48 hours. Mold can produce allergens and irritants, and it has the potential to cause other health effects. If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

SERVPRO Equipment

SERVPRO Equipment

This is an example of just some of our equipment that SERVPRO uses. We have many different sizes and styles of air movers and dehumidifiers, which all serve a specific purpose. 

Desiccant Dehumidifer

Desiccant Dehumidifer

When the temperatures are too cold in a property,  we are able to bring in our desiccant dehumidifier! This unit is able to be laid down, which is great for crawlspaces and attics.

Hardwood Floor Drying System

Hardwood Floor Drying System

This is a view of our hardwood floor drying mat system. The mats allow us to draw moisture right through the surface of the floor, which in turn alleviates the need of removing the floor.

Deodorizer

Deodorizer

For a fast, high-intensity treatment of up to 50,000 cubic feet of commercial space, the Vaportek Vapor Shark is our ideal tool for the job.  This application is ideal for manufacturing facilities, disaster restoration, animal shelters, large grow rooms, restaurant grill exhaust/party rooms, sewer/septic backup & sewage treatment plants, or casinos/large meeting halls.  

Webs??

Webs??

This is a view of a soot web! We have many customers apologize for their "spider" webs when we arrive onsite. We explain to them that they are soot webs...The soot webs are a sure sign that the smoke traveled into that room. When there are soot webs, we hepa vacuum the area prior to cleaning. We will then either wash and rinse the area or use a dry chemical sponge,  depending on if its a flat paint or gloss paint, to clean the affected areas to ensure that the homeowner will return to a safe and clean environment.

If you see these soot webs, call SERVPRO of Columbia, Montour & Sullivan Counties at 570-759-0966.

SERVPRO doing what it takes to get the job DONE!

Result of Frozen Sprinkler

Result of Frozen Sprinkler

SERVPRO was called to a local school in Bloomsburg, PA to clean-up after a 
sprinkler system freeze up in multiple areas of the building. The water damage necessitated most of the children, pre-school age, to be picked up by their parents, so the work could progress. Wet carpet and hard floors were extracted, vinyl cove base removed, toys and furniture were moved to drier areas, air movers and dehumidifiers were placed. SERVPRO personnel worked around the plumbers, who were opening walls up to find leaks and also worked around the sprinkler repair personnel. Some areas were extracted twice, due to additional leaks being found when system was tested. Most equipment was removed within 3 days, harder to dry areas were complete 
with-in 6 days, but the school was able to continue with operating, around that equipment. 

Smoke Pressurized in Walls

Smoke Pressurized in Walls

We have all seen fire/smoke damage to a home, but do you know that smoke can pressurize inside the walls? This picture shows the smoke coming out of the wall around a receptacle. Sometimes it is the smoke you don't see that can do the most damage. There are instances where the walls need to be removed to remove the insulation that may be behind it. The insulation will trap and hold the smoke smell, which can make it difficult to deodorize.

This is just one example of a service SERVPRO provides. This is called "floating" the carpet. Floating the carpet is accomplished by lifting the carpet and removing pad, if necessary, and then placing air movers as needed around the area to dry the carpet. We can salvage the carpet by floating, dependent on the type of loss.. If the carpet was contaminated by sewage or is delaminating due to age, the carpet would be removed.
