Water Damage Restoration: A SERVPRO® Short Story
Have you ever wondered what a day in the life of a SERVPRO® technician looks like? Read Emily's story below to get a sneak peek!
Water Damage Restoration Short Story
In the heart of a rain-soaked town, a SERVPRO technician named Emily was a silent hero working to undo the havoc wreaked by a sudden and merciless storm. As dawn broke, the phone rang, summoning her to a home that had become a victim of relentless flooding.
Arriving at the scene, Emily stepped into ankle-deep water, her SERVPRO uniform ready to bear witness to the challenging task ahead. With a determined nod, she began her meticulous dance with the water's chaos.
First, Emily assessed the extent of the water damage, a critical step that would shape her plan of action. She meticulously cataloged the affected areas, from drenched carpets to soggy walls, ensuring no detail escaped her watchful eye.
Equipped with an arsenal of specialized tools, Emily initiated the water extraction process. Her nimble fingers worked deftly as she wielded industrial-grade pumps, swiftly draining the stagnant water that had invaded the home's sanctity. Her movements were deliberate, each action inching the house closer to its former glory.
As the last of the water vanished, Emily's focus shifted to drying and dehumidifying the space. She strategically placed high-powered air movers and dehumidifiers, orchestrating a symphony of airflow that whisked away moisture, one molecule at a time. It was a delicate ballet of science and technique, executed flawlessly by Emily's experienced hands.
With the environment primed, Emily turned her attention to the aftermath of the flood: damaged furniture, warping wood, and the musty scent that clung to the air. Her skilled touch brought these elements back to life. She meticulously cleaned and sanitized surfaces, her meticulous efforts erasing any traces of the disaster.
Emily's dedication was more than just a job; it was an act of restoring normalcy to a family's life. The gratitude in their eyes as they surveyed their rejuvenated home was the ultimate reward for her hard work.
In the end, Emily stood amidst a scene of triumph. The water damage had been tamed, the chaos quelled. Her role as a SERVPRO technician had not only salvaged a house but also rekindled hope. And as Emily left the once-flooded home, her steps were light with the knowledge that she had made a difference – one that would resonate long after the floodwaters had receded.

Water Damage Repair Timeline
The annoyance and ruination of water damage happens to U.S. homeowners a troubling 14,000 times a day. Statistically speaking, it’s happening at least once somewhere in America while you read this paragraph. And there it goes again.
Obviously, we hope your home stays bone dry as long as you live there, but should the day arise when you need emergency assistance from SERVPRO, here’s how all that will go.
Emergency Contact. When you reach out in a panic, we’ll reassure you and walk you though some guiding questions to help us understand the situation and start putting a plan together. Then we’ll set a time to meet in person. All of this will happen quickly.
Inspection and Water Damage Assessment. Once we arrive on the scene, we can flesh out the plan and stop any water that may still be flowing. We’ll make sure you know if the encroaching water has created any hazards on your property, and we’ll also give you an idea of the items or materials that will likely need replacement.
Water Removal. You’ll never get all that water out with a bucket or a regular water vacuum. That’s why we bring our pumps to make quick work of it.
Damaged Material Removal. The items that are unable to be restored can now be hauled away, expediting the process of restoration for the items and materials that remain.
Cleaning, Sanitizing and Deodorization. Water damage can leave a yucky mess. We’ll use our tools and some old-fashioned elbow grease to rid your home of unwanted stains, smells and depending on the nature of your emergency, harmful contaminants.
Drying. It’s only a short while after water invades that mold begins to grow. Even after the water is pumped out, your home will need some dehumidifying and drying out.
Monitoring. We’ll be carefully watching the entire process, making sure every box is ticked and every surface is cleaned and dried. Don’t you worry about a thing.
Repairs and Construction. Now that everything is dry and in order, we can go about the finishing touches, which may range from replacing carpet to reconstructing entire rooms. Large or small, we’ll be there to oversee every aspect of your water damage restoration.
Be Aware of Your Fire Pits!
Though we’re still feeling the summer heat and fall seems to be far away, we’ll start to experience colder temperatures as we approach October. Fall is prime time for s’mores, apple cider, time spent outdoors, and of course, fire pits. According to the National Fire Protection Association, fire pits and campfires can facilitate accidents that may lead to injury if safety guidelines are not followed. Keep reading to learn ways in which you can safely use a fire pit and prevent fire damage to your property this fall.
Fire Safety at the Fire Pit
Two different types of fire pits can be purchased for properties: in-ground and above-ground. Both types must be kept at a safe distance away from your home, in addition to any combustible objects on your property, like sheds, trees, bushes, and other types of brush. Your fire pit should also be built from a non-combustible material, heavy metal, brick, or stone, in order to reduce fire risks. To prevent a fire emergency, a responsible adult should supervise the fire pit at all times whenever a fire is actively burning in the fire pit.
Make Safety a Priority
Be informed about your fire pit’s fuel safety protocols in order to protect your property. If you have a wood-burning fire pit, be sure that you use dry, clean wood. If your fire pit is not wood-burning, it is crucial that you follow the safety guidelines of your fuel type. These safety precautions may seem obvious, but a small oversight can have a significant impact on the safety of your property. Taking fire safety precautions such as those listed in this blog can decrease the risk of fire damage to your property, but accidents happen. For this reason, it is beneficial to always have a fire extinguishing device at the ready when using your fire pit. A fire extinguisher is a helpful tool, but a garden hose or bucket of water sitting nearby are also sufficient tools that can quickly douse a fire in an emergency.
