This picture is just one example of the secondary damage that can be caused by a household fire.  In this particular house the fire took place in the lower level, this bathroom pictured was on the 3rd level.  The staining demonstrates how the smoke, soot and heat rise throughout the structure.  The homeowner was surprised as how the streaks appear to go up the walls, vanity and toilet.  We explained how soot adheres to cold surfaces and that the rising heat created the lines we see in this picture.

Even Slow Drips Can Disrupt Your Household in Pequot Lakes, MN

The Water You Don't See.

The pinhole leak pictured was discovered only after the nearby light fixture in the ceiling below this drip began to flicker.  The homeowner had initially thought the flickering was due to a failing light bulb.

While changing out the bulb water had run out of the fixture.  He immediately called SERVPRO to come and inspect for water damage and help to find the source.  Pictured is what we discovered, we were able to get a plumber out within the hour to fix the issue.  

Upon further inspection, we had discovered that the subfloor was saturated and with the homeowners permission were able to perform the necessary steps to prevent any further damage from happening.

He was impressed with our professionalism and the fact that while we were there he and his household were the only things on our mind.

Results from an Ice Dam in Cass County

Torn down ceiling with blown in insulation as the result of an ice damn.

WHEN WINTER STRIKES!

While there are many ways to help prevent ice dam's during the cold winter months this bathroom took the melt back hard.

As the water started coming in the ceiling and insulation started coming down.  SERVPRO of Brainerd and Park Rapids was called in to assist in the cleanup and dry out. 

A few ways to help prevent ice dam's on your home:

  • Ensure gutters are clean and secure.  Leaves and debris accumulate, causing a damming effect on gutters, which could lead to roof problems and water damage.
  • Double check your attic insulation, making sure you have enough to prevent heat loss, which results in melting snow on your roof.
  • Use a roof rake to shovel heavy wet snow off of roof.
