Storm Damage in Texas

Sometimes storm damage can be minimal and it does not require a lot of work to get things to the way they were. In other instances, like in this picture, storms can cause a lot of damage and take a lot of work to get things back to pre-storm conditions

Storm Damage

Sometimes storm damage can be minimal and it does not require a lot of work to get things to the way they were. In other instances, storms can cause a lot of damage and take a lot of work to get things back to pre-storm conditions.

Mold in Unoccupied Apartment

Mold can sometimes run rampant and take over an entire room or even an entire home. In situations like this, where you have a house or a room closed off without proper air flow for an extended amount of time, a little household cleaner will not do. There would need to be complete removal of wall, ceilings and other affected areas. 

Mold Behind Cabinet

Mold doesn't always mean a complete tear out job. Sometimes, like in this picture, it's contained to one small area. At times, when it is a small area, you can use a household cleaner that has a broad spectrum of bactericidal properties to clean the area yourself. 

Water Damage in Vaiden, MS

Although this started off as a small water leak in the kitchen, technicians quickly realized that it affected the flooring throughout the entire house causing the flooring to be removed in all rooms. 

AC Leak in Grenada, MS

Most of the time when we think of where an air conditioning unit is located in a home we think first floor, main level and so on. In this particular house, it was located upstairs and caused damage to the upstairs rooms as well as the ceiling and the rooms below it.

Fire in Greenwood, MS

The fire at this residence actually happened in a sun room downstairs but the smoke entered the HVAC system and went through the entire house. The homeowner has asthma and the lingering smell was affecting their health. SERVPRO brought in air scrubbers and placed them throughout the home to help neutralize the smell and improve the air quality in the home.

Fire in Crawford, MS

As you can see this fire did not happen in the home but in a structure beside the home. Even so, the house was still affected by soot and the rooms as well as the carpet and upholstery needed to be cleaned.

Restaurant in Philadelphia, MS

This happened at a restaurant in Philadelphia, MS. By giving SERVPRO a call the same day the problem was found, we were able to resolve the issue at hand quickly and efficiently before the problem got worse

Hotel in Starkville, MS

This shows that significant water damage can happen anywhere, whether it is a house or business. This happened on the third floor and affected the second and first floors as well. 


The Kosciusko Mainstreet hosts the annual Boo Fest in downtown Kosciusko.  This is a chance for SERVPRO of Columbus/Starkville to get involved with the children of our community.  This venue offers a safe environment for children to play games, meet characters and trick or treat .

Ceiling Storm Damage

SERVPRO responded to the property with significant ceiling damage.  Storms come in all shapes and sizes.  The team can work quickly in the area to return you to your property "Like it never even happened."

Frozen Pipe Water Damage

Frozen pipes can cause major destruction in a home.  This home had frozen pipes in the attic.  The main floor had to have 85% of the drywall and flooring removed.

Commercial Mold Remediation

Besides causing a major business interruption, a mold problem can present a serious health risk for people exposed at your commercial property.  Mold infestations can be caused by minor water intrusions,like a slow roof leak or loose plumbing fitting.  

Mold Behind Drywall

Here is a great example of what mold looks like when it is growing in your home.  Mold can appear anywhere.  The growth occurs where there is moisture that does not dry.  It is a good idea to have monthly check around your home where there could be possible water leakage issues, such as around the air conditioner, around the sinks, around the bathroom faucets, around the washing machine and around the toilet.  These are not the only places you should check, but keep an open mind and make sure you are paying attention to signs of mold and mildew in your home.

Water Damages are More Common Than You Think

The most common causes for water damages are:

     Leaky roof

     Burst pipe

     Faulty window and door installations

     Broken or leaking water lines

     Leaky toilet

It's important to keep an eye out for these causes so you can catch them early on and avoid expensive water damage to your home.

Water Damage Can Be Deceptive

Water penetrates into structural cavities creating trapped pockets of saturation.  The detection of water in these areas can often only be discovered with sophisticated moisture detection meters.  Undetected moisture will continue to cause damage.  This damage, at a minimum, will cause odors.  Greater damage will surface when materials delaminate, shrink, split and further deteriorate to where costly repairs are required.

Weighted Extraction

One way to make the carpet drying process go faster is by using weighted extraction system.  In most cases, a weighted extraction tool can remove 97% of any moisture in your carpets, giving you a BIG headstart in the water extraction process and helping ensure your wet carpets are dried properly.

Large Commercial Job

Technicians getting started at commercial water damage in Canton, Mississippi. Water was extracted from 38,000 sf.

While there are many methods for drying structural components and contents, the "in-place" drying system has been taught in the industry and used by drying contractors since the early '80s. In those days, this method of drying components, without significant removal of furnishings or fixtures, was somewhat restricted, due to limitations imposed by extraction, evaporation and dehumidification equipment. In recent years, however drying technology (extraction, evaporation, dehumidification), along with better understanding of psychrometry, has advanced in major ways so that in-place drying has, in some cases, become far more safe and practical.

Direct Cleaning on campus. 3 stories, 15 rugs and upholstery.  Like carpets, rugs require proper maintenance to retain their appearance and durability.

Area rugs tend to be made of more delicate fibers, questionable dyes and woven constructions that can easily be damaged by do-it-yourself procedures or even professionals without adequate training and experience.
