Statement of Support

We honored our Veterans during a short ceremony at our new office in Bay City. Randy and Tina Miller signed a Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve during this ceremony. Supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the Nation’s Guard and Reserve units. SERVPRO’s Team Miller proudly supports the military, including the Guard and Reserve. Even though many of our Veterans have traveled to Texas in relief of recent storm events, we want to take the time to thank our Veterans for their service and being a part of our SERVPRO team.

Emergency Fire Damage Tips

September is National Preparedness Month, it is never bad to be prepared for the unthinkable. Here are some helpful tips if you suffer from fire damage. 

  • Keep hands clean.
  • Limit movement in the home to prevent further damage.
  • Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on carpeted traffic areas to prevent more soiling.
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open. 
  • Wipe soot from chrome on faucets and appliances then protect with a light coating of lubricant.
  • Do not attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contracting one of our SERVPRO professionals.
  • Do not attempt to shampoo carpet or upholster furniture.
  • Do not attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire or water without consulting a repair service.

Kitchen after devastating fire

After a Kitchen Fire

After a smoke or fire damage, ceilings, walls, woodwork, carpeting and floors will often need a thorough cleaning. SERVPRO will pretest the areas to determine the extent of damage, and then use the specific equipment and cleaning products required to clean and protect the different types of surfaces found in your home. Depending on the amount of soot, SERVPRO may even be able to reduce the cost of recovery by cleaning lighter soot deposits found on some surfaces, eliminating the expense incurred with repainting or refinishing. In other cases, SERVPRO will clean to “prepare for painting”. This process deodorizes and ensures the new paint will adhere properly to the surface.

Cleaning this is a Biohazard.

Cleaning up from a hoarding situation like this should be left to the cleaning professionals at SERVPRO.  We have the training, knowledge and Personal protection equipment to handle the job safely.  

Restore vs. Replace

Drying out this gymnasium floor was a much better option to save this customer money and downtime.  The cost to replace it all then refinish it and repaint it would have been triple the cost and taken weeks.

SERVPRO has over 1700 franchises to call on for and major flood event

SERVPRO of Midland / Gladwin Counties has access to  over 1700 franchises for call upon in the event of a major storm.  Here is a picture of the corporate Disaster recovery team trailer during a recent storm.

A potential fire hazzard

This plug was found in a recent fire clean-up.  It wasn't the cause of the fire but it could have been.  It was not in a box and had additional wire connecting a light.  If you have anything like this in your home you should call an electrician immediately. 

Mold growing behind wallpaper

When this customer had another company dry his basement they told him it would not be a problem.  The wallpaper could stay and it would dry fine.  It wasn't until the mold started showing through the paper that he new he had a problem.  Following the IICRC standards is top priority at SERVPRO of Midland / Gladwin counties. 

Flooded golf course

During the recent floods this area golf course was under water.  It was in one of the many areas that flooded when we received a large amount of rain in a very short time, overwhelming drainage systems and causing backups. 

Cleaning stone tile after a renovation.

When this local restaurant did renovations and needed cleanup they knew to call SERVPRO of Midland/Gladwin counties.  Post construction clean up is on of our specialties.  They called the day before the grand re opening and we came in and cleaned it all up.

Cutting out drywall behind a built in desk.

This customer had some water in their basement that they let dry on its own creating a mold problem behind a built in desk.  We came in and removed the desk, cut out the drywall and dried things out.

Cleaning air ducts at a local church after the floods

Sometimes we end up in some tight spots in our job.  Here is a pic of an air duct that we had to clean out and sanitize after the recent flooding.

Carpet cleaning at Coleman Fire Department

SERVPRO of Midland / Gladwin counties does commercial and residential carpet cleaning.  Here we are doing the carpets in the Coleman fire department meeting room.  We do them once a year to keep them looking clean. 

Signs are up at the new shop

Well the signs are up at the new shop.  We've moved our shop to Sanford to be in a more central location in our territories but we are still happy to serve the Midland and Gladwin area

Bringing in re-inforcements

SERVPRO is a company with over 1700 franchises nationwide so there is never a job too big.  We can bring in a few people or a few hundred if needed with just a phone call.  

Time to clean the air ducts

If your home has forced air heat your cold air returns suck in dirt and debris every time your furnace runs. Now yours might not be as bad as this customers but our duct cleaning professionals can clean that right up for you.

Carpet Cleaning

As spring approaches, it is a great time to get your carpets clean.  Cleaning carpets removes allergens, dust mites, dirt and debris.  It leaves your house smelling fresh and clean.  Call (989)835-5015 today to set up an appointment.

Taking reading a Beaverton water loss

The Hygrometer is one of the many tools we use to determine if your house is dry.  Here, we see the temperature is 85 F and the Relative Humidity is 32%....  Nice and dry. 

Soot on a built in shelving unit.

When a fire cleanup begins we start by removing the heavy soot.  This is done a few different ways depending on the type of damage and what its being cleaned off.  This shelf had a good finish on it so the soot could be easily removed.

Soot webs in a closet

When this St. Louis Mi house burned the homeowners thought it wasn't that bad.  Upon further inspection we started to show them how bad it really was.  Soot webs had formed in the tops of all of the closets and the corners of the rooms.

Soot removal is a multi stage process

When this Sanford Mi Church rectory had a fire on the stove only the kitchen was affected by the actual fire but the smoke and soot spread through the entire house.  This hallway behind the kitchen was covered in heavy soot and needed multiple cleanings.  Once that was taken care of the area could be sealed and  repainted.

What's growing in the house next door

When this Saginaw county house was repossessed and left vacant the power was cut off. Without a working sump pump the basement filled up with water causing wet drywall and then mold.  This could be the house right next door to you.   

Carpet Delaminating from water damage

Carpet delamination is a condition where the secondary backing of the carpet separates from the primary backing. It can be caused by a variety of issues. One cause can be a failure of the bonding agent, usually latex, between the primary and secondary backing

Old space heaters are dangerous

Older space heaters should be replaced.  If you can tip it or pick it up and it does not shut off automatically it should be replaced immediately.  Also if the cord is frayed or damage it should be thrown away.  NEVER SPLICE A PLUG TOGETHER!!! 

If its not repaired it will cause way more damage.

When a flooded basement isn't found for several months the damage can be far worse that it originally was.  Here we see a furnace and hot water heater that were damaged because they sat under water for a long period of time.

Aluminum foil protects the furniture

This customer saw this tip on our website.  By wrapping the legs of his furniture in aluminum foil as soon as he noticed the water. He reduced the risk of damage to the furniture and carpet. 

Contaminated water

Even though water appears to be clean it may not be.  Any type of water that comes up from a drain is considered contaminated and is hazardous to your health.

Drying carpet

In some cases when the water is clean your carpet may be able to be dried.  It can help to keep the cost of reconstruction down and shorten up the repair time. 

Flooded basement in a vacant house

Did you know that standing water in a basement for more than three days should be considered contaminated and cleaned up accordingly.  As a homeowner this is not something you should attempt on your own.  

Wood absorbs water very quickly

Materials like wood and drywall absorb water very quickly.  When a structure floods things like cabinets may need to be removed to dry under or behind them.  In some cases it may even damage the cabinet.    

Laminate flooring removed

When this homeowner found a leak from his ice maker he called SERVPRO of Midland / Gladwin Counties to investigate.  The water had ran under most of his laminate flooring causing a soft moldy sub floor.  

Broken pipes

If you are planning to be away from your home for an extended period of time you should always shut off your water main.  It could save you thousands of dollars in repairs and lost contents.  

Cardboard boxes are not good for storage.

When storing your belongings keep in mind that cardboard boxes are a poor choice.  In the event of a water damage the contents will be ruined creating a much bigger mess.  Plastic totes work so much better.  

Upholstery cleaning

SERVPRO of Midland / Gladwin Counties does more than just carpet cleaning.  We do upholstery cleaning and also dry cleaning if necessary.  We understand some materials cannot get wet and need special care 

Wet hardwood floors.

Hardwood floors can be dried if the damage is minimal once they get to this point they are too far gone to save.  Drying them out would cost more than replacing them

Time to dry it out.

SERVPRO follows IICRC s500 standard when drying a structure.  There are several procedures we must follow to get the job done properly.  There is also a certified water technician at every job.

The cat don't seem to mind the wet carpet

Sometimes pets cause the damage we have to repair.  In this case a cat turned on a faucet and left it run for several hours causing thousands of dollars in damage.  You may want to check in advance with your insurance provider to make sure you have specific coverage for this type of damage.  

Ice dams are a problem

If snow and ice build up on your roof in the winter it can be a big problem.  Ice dams can form and actually force water up under the shingles and into the house.

Flooding a Midland Office

When this Midland city business flooded they called SERVPRO right away to get it dried out.  50% of business close after loss of this type and they did not want to become one of the statistics.

Sump pump failure

As a homeowner you need to keep your sump pump well maintained and free of debris.  It is also a good idea to replace it every few years so it does not fail on you. 

Moisture wicking

Most times water damage is far worse than the customer thinks.  Here we see the back side of an open wall with moisture wicking up about 2 feet even tho the water was only a few inches deep

You should have your air ducts cleaned before winter

SERVPRO of Midland / Gladwin counties offers duct cleaning services.  If you have never had your ducts cleaned you should as soon as possible.   There is all kinds of dust and debris in there. 

A toilet backup should be considered serious

Any time a toilet or other drain backs up your house is contaminated with hazardous materials.  For your own safety you should leave the clean up to the SERVPRO professionals.  We have the chemicals and equipment to handle the job.

Smoke and soot removal in progress.

After this garage fire the walls needed a thorough cleaning before they could be sealed.  Once all of the soot damage was removed the wall could be sealed up making the structure usable again 

The start of mold

Even tho this don't look very bad it is the start of mold.  It is forming on this customers bathroom wall due to high humidity from the shower.  Even a small amount like this should be taken care of right away.

Wet drywall behind paneling can mold very quickly

When a wall has multiple layers and gets wet mold can form very quickly.  This wall had paneling glued on the drywall limiting the airflow to a damp area and creating a perfect environment for mold growth

Carpets stained from dyes

It is a good idea to make sure you don't keep things like magazines, newspapers or markers on the floor.  They contain dyes that could ruin your carpets in the event of a flood.  

Frozen pipes lead to big water damage

Make sure to winterize your pipes.  When a winter storm dropped a foot of snow and freezing temperatures on this cabin in Rhodes, MI the pipes froze causing hundreds of gallons of water to flood the building.

Drying a bathroom floor.

Businesses flood too, and when they do they call us.  Many national chains have national accounts with SERVPRO.  It makes things easy for the business manager and saves them a lot of problems getting up and running again.

Just one of the tools we use to tell if your floor is wet.

Here is a picture of one of our moisture meters. It is a non penetrating meter and has 3 different scales.   As you can see it is in the red meaning this hard wood floor is very wet.   

Equipment

The bigger the job the more equipment needed to dry it out. Here is some dehumidifiers and air movers staged and ready to dry a large basement for a recent job in Freeland, Michigan.

Painted trim

The trim for this Midland Mi customers house has been painted and laid out to dry. After a second coat it will be cut and installed. After touch ups the carpeting will be installed and the customers contents moved back in.

Carpet Cleaning

SERVPRO of Midland / Gladwin counties provides commercial and residential carpet cleaning. We can also do upholstery. Call us today to set up a time for our technicians to give you a quote.

Cleaning a smoke damaged wall

Clean up after a fire can be a long process. This picture shows one of the first steps to removing the soot. If you just tried to repaint without removing all the contaminates from the surface the soot will bleed right through.

Drying a hardwood floor

Sometimes drying a hardwood floor is a better option then removing and replacing. Here we are using an injectidry system to pull all of the moisture out of this school gym floor saving our Gladwin Michigan customer thousands of dollars.

What's hiding behind your baseboard

Even the smallest flood can cause big problems if not taken care of properly. If base boards are not removed and the drywall isn't completely dried mold can form in a very short time.

Marketing Flowers

A great job today by our marketing rep. Barb putting together these beautiful flowers to take around to some of our valued customers. Just another way we try to brighten everyone's day

Restored basement in Midland

When this Midland, Mi homeowner came home to find her basement flooded and her contents soaked she knew to call SERVPRO of Midland / Gladwin counties. We responded quickly and dried everything out, cleaned up the mess and gave everything a fresh coat of paint.

Epoxy coating in a fire damaged garage.

SERVPRO of Midland / Gladwin Counties was happy to help this Bay County customer get there garage back to a usable condition after a fire in a trash can. The walls and floors were cleaned to removed the soot then sealed.

What is hiding in your air ducts
