Grease Fire in Kitchen

Grease Fire in Kitchen

An unattended pan on the stove caught fire and ignited other surrounding materials which caused a kitchen fire to erupt in this home.

After any fire damage situation, your primary focus should be safety first:

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!
Cleaning Your Electronics and Contents After a Fire

Cleaning Your Electronics and Contents After a Fire

Fire damage, including smoke and soot, affects not only the structure of your house but also your belongings.

SERVPRO of Chesapeake South understands your family’s furniture, clothing, keepsakes, and other belongings make your house more than a structure; they make it home.

The belongings are boxed and inventoried and taken to our warehouse.  We use various cleaning techniques to help restore your items.

SERVPRO of Chesapeake South specializes in restoring contents damaged by water, fire, or mold.

Structure Repairs after a Fire in Chesapeake

Structure Repairs after a Fire in Chesapeake

The fire damage restoration process begins after you call SERVPRO of Hampton North.  When we arrive, we carefully inspect and test the adjoining rooms to determine the extent of the fire damage and prepare to protect the property against any further damage.

In this photo, you notice that the ceiling framework is exposed and the walls are covered. 

This is the structural restoration process to help get this home to its pre-fire condition.  Restoration may involve minor repairs such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet, or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of a room or rooms in the home or business.

Drying Out Your Home After a Fire

Drying Out Your Home After a Fire

After the fire trucks have left, your Hampton home or business is likely suffering from not only fire and smoke damage but extensive water damage from the firefighters efforts.

The fire damage restoration process begins almost immediately following a fire once we receive the emergency call. 

In this photo, you notice one of our dehumidifier machines that is pulling out the remaining moisture in this particular room while the structural restoration is taking place.    The "DeHu" as we like to call it and air movers are used to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.

Mold Found in Portable Trailer

Mold Found in Portable Trailer

A city's portable training room had been closed up and when it was reopened, mold was found throughout the unit.   Mold was found in the air system too.

Besides causing a major business interruption, a mold problem can present a serious health risk for people exposed at your commercial property.

SERVPRO of Chesapeake South works quickly to first contain the infestation to prevent its spreading to other parts of the structure and to work safely and effectively to manage the situation.

 Air Duct Cleaning

Air Duct Cleaning

When something is out of sight, it's normally out of mind too.  It's usually a certain smell or excessive dust, or even stuffy sinuses that may signal that there is something affecting your business indoor air quality.

This commercial office building duct system appears to not have been cleaned in some time, perhaps since it's installation. 

At SERVPRO of Chesapeake South we provide commercial air duct cleaning services along with a Free Inspection and quote of your air duct system.

However, duct cleaning is not always necessary. We will make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality.

  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.

Extracting Water

Extracting Water

This is our extractor that will remove most of the water from the carpet.  It's similar to laundry, where the spin cycle removes most of the dampness from your clothes. 

Next you will move the clothes to the dryer to dry.  After the extractor, we will implement our drying equipment, dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the rest of the moisture.

Mushrooms Grow From Contaminated Water

Mushrooms Grow From Contaminated Water

Water damage is never easy to deal with and even worse when the water is from a toilet or sewer backup.

The homeowner wanted to avoid a weekend emergency call only to discover these mushrooms growing two days later from the ceiling.  

The water is what we call "Black Water", a category 3, very contaminated and an immediate health hazard.  Sewage backup should be considered an emergency and dealt with as soon as possible.  You should never try to clean it up yourself.

Sewage Backup or Toilet Overflow? Call Us Today – (757) 523-9700
