Weeping Walls

Recent storms in Central Texas caused the roof on this commercial building to lift up and allow water to flood down into its walls. In some areas you could very plainly see the water coming in from above but using our thermal-imaging camera we were able to see where even more moisture was located to the unseen eye (identified by the dark purple coloring in the image above). Once we made a complete assessment of the affected areas, we placed the required drying equipment and took daily monitor readings to ensure that the humidity levels in the building were decreasing until completely dry.

Nibbles and Leaks

A church in the Waco area called us out for a water leak and after inspecting the damage, we found this to be one of the sources. It appeared that a rodent in looking for something tasty, instead received a surprise shower and caused the flooding of the building. Once we determined the source, our technicians were better able to investigate where the water traveled and where insulation may have become wet. When insulation becomes wet, it loses its R-factor, its ability to resist heat. Because the line was located in the attic, the insulation nearby was wet and had to be removed. Fortunately, SERVPRO® of Greater Waco was contacted early on so further damage such as mold and ceiling collapse was avoided.

Sewage Back-up in A Retail Store

While commercial buildings can differ greatly in construction, they often suffer the same type of water losses as homes. The mitigation approach might differ, but the same customer centered approach is applied to every job by SERVPRO® of Greater Waco. This store suffered a sewage back up from clogged pipe. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco was called in to extract the standing water, to clean the affected areas, dry down the structure, and to deal with the pungent smell. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco's fast response helped minimize the down time the store experienced due to this unfortunate sewage back up.

Waco's Finest

SERVPRO® of Greater Waco was onsite at a local apartment complex to address the damage resulting from a lightning strike during a thunderstorm. While our technicians were there a secondary fire began to smolder. A quack call and Waco's finest arrived quickly to put it out. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco's employees safely alerted the tenants and stepped back allowing the Waco Fire Department to do what it does best.

What's behind your office walls?

This stair case and outside wall to the second level of a Woodway commercial building suffered a toilet overflow. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco had to remove the sheetrock on the wall due to the insulation behind the drywall being affected by water. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco removed the drywall, the wet insulation, and dried out both the wood studs and the concrete masonry unit (CMU) wall.

Fire Sprinkler System Leak

SERVPRO® of Greater Waco was called out to help dry out a Woodway medical facility after their 4 inch main pipe broke.  SERVPRO® of Greater Waco responded within 15 minutes, and was able to minimize the area that could have been affected on this loss.  SERVPRO® had this property dry within 4 days and the residents felt "Like it never even happened."
