Basement Post-Mitigation

Basement had 4-ft of water

Our crew was called out to a homeowners  basement with over 4-feet of water inside. In addition there were a multitude of the customers contents submerged in the water and floating. The crew successful pumped out the water,  removed the contents and cleaned the basement. Within a hard days work the customers home looked like "It Never Even Happened"  

Bathroom floor has molded due to improper care

Bathroom Mold Damage

Bathroom floor has molded due to improper care from the home owners. Leaving the shower curtain on the outside of the tub when showering. This allows water to run down the curtain and onto the floor. Overtime the floor began to retain water and mold began to grow. 

SERVPRO team was able to discover the problem, clean and dry the area and provide the customer with a way to mitigate the situation. Always shower with the shower curtain in the shower, so the water just ends up back in the tub.

Post Fire Grill Hood Cleaning

Our crew finally had a day with nice weather to perform grill hood cleaning at Keith's Dugout, here in Findlay, Ohio. After Keith's Dugout experienced a fire, most of their equipment was left with a soot and smoke residue. While our team was able to clean all other equipment in our warehouse, the grill hood needed to be power washed from the entrance on the roof. 

Keeping the grill hood clean and free from debris is important for safety and cleanliness of the restaurant and the guests. This is the debris catcher prior to the cleaning. Visit our before and after section to see what the cleaning process looks like!

Basement Clean Up

Our team specializes in water restoration and clean up. Flooded basements are no match for our team. See here how we've prepared this home for renovations. Located in Findlay, Ohio.

Removal of Flooring

When you experience a water loss, in many cases, the flooring and/or padding needs to be removed. Once our team sees that the padding will need removed, they perform removal and properly rid of the debris. This is what the floor typically looks like under basement flooring with removal. 

Equipment Cleaning

A local business asked up to clean their kitchen equipment recently. It's important to keep your cooking equipment in tip top shape in order to ensure the best cooking process for your restaurant. 

Floor Removal for Microbial Growth

This home had a water leak that sprayed underneath their home for some time before they noticed. The turn out of that water and moisture was microbial growth underneath the home. Leaving microbial growth unattended can become a causing factor of rot. In this case, the growth is on wood, so it's good that these homeowners are having the situation taken care of earlier rather than later. 

Our crew had to remove the flooring, padding, and sub-floor to expose the entire area of growth. This ensured an easy and efficient remediation. We make sure to specially train our technicians so that the microbial growth jobs are being handled in a healthy and proper way.

Insurance Continued Education Courses

Did you know that our owner is a certified IICRC instructor? A few times a year, we host continued education courses for the local insurance agents  in need of credits for the year. If you or another agent you know, are interested in attending one of our future courses, contact Angie Perkins at

Water Damage & Mold Remediation

Water damage, if gone untreated, can create an entire other problem for your home...microbial growth. If you notice that you may have growth, don't try to treat it yourself. The best thing that you can do for you and your family is to call SERVPRO of Hancock County for a test. Our crew members can perform special testing inside and outside of your home. The test results will help our team determine a plan on action.

Mold Remediation for local resident

A resident of Carey, Ohio discovered what appeared to be water damage, and in fact is microbial growth as well. Our Production Manager, Chase Perkins, was able to stop by and take a look at the damage that was present. We're currently placing equipment in the home to begin to restoration and remediation process. 

Our technicians are sure to follow safety standards for not only themselves, but for your home as well. Safety and great service are our priorities when tending to a job site. 

Water Hazards

It's important to look out for electrical systems of all kinds when treading through or being near areas affected by water damages. Outlets, cords, boxes, and circuits can all cause serious, and dangerous harm to you and your home. The last thing that you would want is to have a fire happen, all because you weren't cautious of electrical hazards.

SERVPRO of Hancock County can help you with your water damage needs, and we will be sure that proper maintenance occurs if electrical hazards are an issue. We would much rather help clean up and restore your affected water areas, rather than board up a fire ridden home. 

Call us at 419-299-3774 for any and all water and fire damage needs.

Post Water Damage

Mold remediation may be needed in some water damage cases. The moisture from the standing water can create a great home for mold spores. It's important to call us immediately if you notice any possible microbial growth, as our experts can perform a microbial growth test and treatment, if needed.

Microbial Growth After Water Damage

When water damage occurs, there is always a possibility of microbial and/or fungal growth in or around the affected areas. In this case, a family's home was affected by water damage, which resulted in some underlying affects, such as this possible microbial growth.

Water Damage Containment

This doorway leads to a basement where there was a massive amount of standing water and damage from a broken pipe. Part of the water cleanup and restoration process includes drying. The drying process requires advanced hot air drying systems that quickly eliminate the water and moisture in the affected area(s). 

While the drying equipment is doing its magic, the SERVPRO team will monitor the walls, ceilings, and floors to make sure that the equipment is dehumidifying and drying the area effectively. 

Once the drying process is approved by the team, the equipment will be removed and the area will be monitored once more.
