Inspection of Storm Damage

6/13/2022 (Permalink)

Most of the storms that we see during the summer here in the Upstate of South Carolina do not leave extensive damages on the outsides of our homes. However, tornadoes and thunderstorms are much more likely to occur over the summer months, and these storms could leave you with some big damages.

After a big storm passes, it is always a good idea to provide an initial inspection of your home or business, before you call the professionals in for help. Doing this will allow you to communicate the extent and severity of the damages, giving us at SERVPRO of West Greenville County a better ide of what we are coming into.

For this initial inspection, we recommend to check your roof, windows, doors, shudders and your HVAC. If you see any extensive damages, make sure to record them to make information more accessible for insurance and your restoration/mitigation company.

Greenville, SC Grocery Store Suffers Water Loss

water on grocery store floor from water loss Standing Water in Greenville, SC Grocery Store

This grocery store in Greenville, South Carolina called us at SERVPRO of West Greenville County when a remodel job went south. During the minor remodels that the store was doing, a drill set off the sprinkler system in the front part of the building. While they were able to get the sprinklers turned off in a timely manner, the sprinkler system is rigged to dump mass amounts of water in a short period of time. This caused a good amount of damage to the customer service area and entrance of the building. Our production team went soon after the initial call to perform extraction and drying services. After the water had been cleaned, a better plan of drying and sanitizing could be put together. The customer was pleased that our team was willing to provide services while the store remained open. 

Call us at SERVPRO of West Greenville County at (864)-292-8570 for our commercial water mitigation services.
