Shed Fire

Shed Fire

Allot of sheds are plastic, vinyl, wood, or metal. The cheaper the shed the more flammable. Then think about what's in your shed. Usually people store cardboard boxes, plastic bags, plastic toys, swim toys, chemicals of sorts. The fact of is most outdoor sheds are just waiting to go up in flames. Don't let that happen to you or your backyard will look like this... Luckily the fire didn't spread to the house next door or the tenants.

Peeling Ceilings

Peeling Ceilings

We see all sorts of strange things in this line of work. Sometimes not all the answers are there. This is one of those instances we had to do some investigating to understand this picture.

The Ceiling Needs Drained

The Ceiling Needs Drained

Water from the ceiling can cause great damage. In rare instances this happens as you see in the photo. Water doesn't fully penetrate and gets stuck between the paint and ceiling. Pockets and bubbles of water form and must be drained.

Mold! Mold! & More Mold!

Mold! Mold! & More Mold!

Mold can grow in bizarre places, allot of bizarre places. This place was filled with it, in the walls and corners. Especially interesting was this ring of mold on the ceiling. 

How do you think it got there? Let us know on our social media.

Floor Cleaning

Floor Cleaning

The best thing a business can do for their floors is give them a deep cleaning. You can see from the photo how much dirt was removed even though the floor seemed clean to the naked eye. 

Mold in the Walls

Mold in the Walls

Mold can grow on almost anything. It's an organic material that attaches itself to other organic material when moisture is present. Moisture is key, whether it's in your bathroom or kitchen mold can lurk behind walls much like this one.

It's a Tarp!

It's a Tarp!

This is key evidence of good preparation and planing. A storm can make or break your roof. Tarping in preparation for a storm can ensure a dry interior, which something we all love.

i'Spy a Water Leak

You're probably thinking, what am I looking at?

What we have here is a large water damage affecting ceiling tiles. When these tiles become wet they get very fragile. This tile as a security camera mounted on it. Due to the weight of the camera it caused the tile to sink and look more like a dome.

Resting Roof Water

Resting Roof Water

A common sight this picture is, especially after a large storm or succession of them. However, this water can be dangerous. The best thing water does is soak. As it rests on this commercial roof, it's slowing breaking down that part of the ceiling until it caves in.

If you notice resting water on your roof, don't wait, act fast.

Roof Gutter

What can we learn from this picture...

1) Storms can cause to be an overwhelming problem.

2) Clean you gutters. Clean gutters mean when that storm does come it won't clog the gutters and make a muddy mess.

And the Winner Goes To...

And the Winner Goes To...

Mold is organic and can grow on almost any surface if there is moisture present. This trophy was exposed to some water, and that moisture stuck. You can see how the mold has covered most of the trophy's base. Not exactly the trophy you'd want to display.

Moldy Carpet Spots

Moldy Carpet Spots

Nothing can be stressed more than that of taking immediate action when any sort of damage happens to your home.

In this case, water set just enough time for the carpet to be affected. Once the carpet was pulled back, these spots were found...Mold spots.

When a flooding or water damage happens, take action, soak up as much water as possible, let SERVPRO® of Downey handle the rest.

This close up of the Kitchen Fire allows you to see a better view of the damage. The smoke did a real number on the walls, cabinets, and ceilings. Aside from the smoke, the water used to put out the fire also added to the damage caused.

Don't Look Down

Don't Look Down

Second story water damage can be especially dangerous. If water goes untreated for a long time, it will absorb into the floor. Once it reaches its breaking point...this happens.
