You can see in this photo there has been some major damage to the lower sections of the drywall. We have plenty of fans working to keep air flowing through the walls and the hallway to dry it out.

Detached Dryer Vent

Detached Dryer Vent

This dryer vent has collected lint throughout time and has also disconnected itself from the wall.  This can be a fire hazard as lint in very flammable.  Here we cleaned the dryer vent up through the cavity of the wall and reconnected the vent securely.  

Scorched Table

Scorched Table

Here you can see a scorched table from where a fire started.  A cigarette was believed to be extinguished but the discarded butt was not all the way out.  One should be aware and take personal initiative to ensure all tobacco products are properly put out.

Mold Growth & Wallpaper

Mold Growth & Wallpaper

Wallpaper is a common place for the growth of mold and bacteria. You can see in this photo, there is no visible mold on the outside of the wallpaper. Over time bacteria builds up in between the wallpaper and the wall since there is no air circulation. You can see where the wallpaper has been pulled back that there is a large amount of mold growth.

Pharmacy Flood

Pharmacy Flood

This flood created serious damages for this local pharmacy. You can see the floors have been pulled up in multiple places and we have plenty of fans on the scene. Sometimes we have to work in small active places like these and we make sure our customers can carry on with their days while our equipment is there.

Sometimes mold goes undetected in the work place. If your office is in a shaded, cool, or damp area, it is important to make sure the building manager is checking for mold. Water damage in an office raises the risk of mold growth as well.
