SERVPRO® Traveling Teams

When a natural disaster occurs and the amount of damage is more than one franchise can handle, other SERVPRO® franchises come together in Storm Mode and travel to aid and assist the struggling community.

Cleaning Water Damage in Chesapeake

Our highly trained and skilled SERVPRO® Water Technicians successfully remove the standing water in your home or business. 

We help return your property to pre-damage condition by using our detection, extraction, drying and deodorization equipment to help make it "Like it never even happened."

Reconstruction After Water Damage in Chesapeake

Skilled and trained SERVPRO® Water Technicians removed the water with our extraction machines and dried with our air movers. 

After the water removal,  the restoration process continues with the use of our state-of-the-art equipment such as our air movers and dehumidifiers to dry any potential remaining moisture.  After our equipment confirms that no moisture is present, then the restoration process can begin.

School Cafeteria Floods in Chesapeake

Water damage in this school cafeteria was quickly and carefully cleaned by SERVPRO® trained water technicians.

The water was removed by our extraction machines and dried with our air blowers.  After the drying process, our technicians confirm with a moisture reader that the area has been properly restored.

Ceiling Collapse From a Water Heater Leak

A water heater leak from your attic can be a scary situation.   This ceiling collapsed and not only is there water damage, but there is structural damage too.   After the leak is repaired, and we have cleaned up the mess, SERVPRO of Chesapeake South will help to repair the ceiling, and make it "Like it never even happened."

Water Pipe Burst in Ceiling Damage

Fortunately the homeowners were away when water pipes burst and the ceiling came crashing down.  

After any water 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!

Water Heater Leaks in Crawlspace

When a first floor water heater leaks, one of the first places we inspect is the crawlspace.

This leak looks like it went unnoticed for some time.  This is a good example as to why you should call us immediately after a water leak.  Mold can grow in as little as 48 hours.

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

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.

Air Movers Ready to Dry in Chesapeake

SERVPRO® of Chesapeake's industrial air movers are less intrusive, scientific drying methods used to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property.  

Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business.  We'll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.
