Frozen pipe

Frozen pipe

It's that time of year again, the temperatures drop, the wind blows harder, and colder making it harder to for water to pass through your pipes. When water freezes, its molecules crystallize into an open hexagonal form, which takes up more space than when the molecules are in their liquid form that is, the water molecules expand as they freeze. As the ice expands, it pushes water toward the closed faucet making it impossible for water to pass through. Call SERVPRO of Milwaukie/ Happy Valley, we are always here to help!

Ice dam

Ice dam

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow (water) from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas. Repairs for roof damage, interior water leaks, damage to walls and insulation, floors, window casings, and removal of icedams and snow that caused these and other damages will be covered by your homeowners insurance policy, subject of course to a deductible.

Microwave Fire

First resort

First resort

Poking holes in the drywall is usually how we try to dry out a damage first. That is if it is an interior wall and the damage is a cat 1. If not then we tear out the affected area.

Carpet cleaning- Commercial

Carpet cleaning- Commercial

We clean carpets!!! even in commercial buildings, usually carpet cleaning is a requirement after we restore your home/company depending on the category of the damage. We clean carpets even if no damage has occurred!

Bubbles!

Bubbles!

Once drywall is wet the paint will start to bubble and sometimes peel. When the paint starts to bubble like in the picture below, usually once repairs are ready to go they will end up painting the whole room again since repairing just that area will cost more than fresh paint.

Concrete can get wet too. Even though it is not a highly porous material, it has enough holes that water will find its way in between. It is extremely easy to dry out concrete even if it is reading 999.

What's that smell?

Smell a funky smell but you've cleaned house and still cant find the source? It is possible the smell could be coming from your crawlspace. When pipes under your house break it is extremely hard to tell until it starts to stink, doing monthly crawlspace inspections whether it be by you or a company should help prevent having to smell the aftermath.
