Reconstruction After Water Damage in Carson City
SERVPRO Restores and Reconstructs Following Water Damage in Carson City
Cleanup and Rebuild Needed After a Water Problem? Call SERVPRO
Flooding can ruin a home. Homeowners look at the standing water and want to give up before deciding to call a professional service to replace the damage caused by burst pipes or other failed plumbing and appliances.
Regardless of where the damage came from, SERVPRO is the water damage restoration and reconstruction company to use in Carson City. We are fully licensed in Nevada to perform the tasks needed to return a home to its pre-disaster condition. After the water has been pumped out, we continue to carry out an inspection from the foundation to the roof. Here are a few of the more common damages and how we rebuild after a disaster.
First things first, we replace damaged plumbing. Until we stop the source of the water, it is a waste of time to affect any other repairs. Our specialists are fully trained to replace bathroom fixtures, install new dishwashers or lay new intake pipe anywhere in the home. If the problem was a failed septic tank that backed up into the home or across the outside property, we can remove the old tank and set a new one, to include a new concrete cradle, in place.
Next, come the floors. If our inspection finds damage to the sub-floor, our technicians pull out each piece of the damaged frame and replace it. If necessary, we go down to the foundation and relevel the dirt or concrete to put down a surface without rolls or raised points. Our technicians have years of experience in framing and laying new wood floors that increase the value of the home and are appealing to everyone who sees them.
When it comes to walls, hanging new sheetrock is only the surface of what we do. Before putting up the new panels, we replace every bit of wall framing that shows water damage. Although we do not move load-bearing walls, we can expand closets or decrease a formal dining area to increase the living room for a young, growing family.
Finally, there is the roof. Our response team not only replaces damaged or missing tiles but also removes and installs new support beams underneath them. With a nationwide network of equipment at our disposal, we can even lay in a new main support beam if needed.
Rebuilding your home can be a lengthy process, but hiring the right company for the job can make it much less painful. SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe has the experience, training, and equipment need to help you from the ground up. Call us today at (775) 588-2355 to begin.

From Detecting Mold to Remediating the Damage in Carson City
Discovering where mold is hiding is one of our known talents. To learn more about what SERVPRO can do to remove mold from your property call today.
Professional SERVPRO Technicians Know How to Find Mold Hiding in Your Walls
When mold growth infests a home, the damages can range from low cost (cleaning surfaces of spores) to expensive (demolition and removal of affected material and property). In extreme cases, the growth goes unnoticed or untreated, and the mold has infested every drywall panel and even structural supports.
It takes a professional, licensed company to build back a Carson City home after mold damage has made it uninhabitable. SERVPRO has the employees, skills, and equipment to return your home to its pre-mold condition.
After our technicians complete removal and cleaning, we perform an inspection. If we find compromised structural integrity, we install jacks and other devices as secondary support while we remove the framing for load-bearing walls and support beams. Then, we replace the damaged supports with beams and framing that meets Nevada state and Federal standards.
If wood floors are damaged, we replace the sections removed earlier. Our team members are well-trained in laying new sections and can expertly stain the new pieces to match the existing floor. If a homeowner wants to re-stain the entire floor, we can do that too.
With the new floor and supports in place, it is time to put up the new walls and trim. We can hang new drywall panels for an average sized room in less than a day and begin putting on a coat of primer. After it dries, our team can paint the same room in another day or two. Once the paint dries, it is a simple matter for us to install new wainscoting, floor trim, or crown molding.
Of course, all of this is a waste of time if the sun and the wind or raccoons find a way inside. As a licensed, general contractor, we can replace any roofing as well as the panels and supports underneath. If the material is available, we can even match the new roof to look just like the old one.
Rebuilding your home after a disaster is not a simple process, but it is one that SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe has been doing, successfully, for decades in our area. If you need us, call today at (775) 588-2355.

Recovering from Flood Damage at Your Tahoe Residence
SERVPRO works to restore your home and the furniture and personal belongings inside after flood water invades your home.
SERVPRO Technicians Thoroughly Remove Water and Restore Your Home after Flood Damage
Flooding is one of the worst nightmares any homeowner in Tahoe can experience. Water seeping in under your door can seem unbelievable at first. Garages and sheds, full of stored items, are also at risk of becoming flooded. Damaged carpets in your home, increased humidity, and many other detrimental facets of flooding steadily worsen.
Tahoe homeowners need to begin restoring their properties as soon as possible after flood damage happens. Water continues to recycle itself inside the enclosed area of a home. The experts at SERVPRO know how flooding affects homes and can perform the restorative work that also prevents additional problems. Until we remove the water caused by flooding, it remains inside, continuing to spread throughout your home, creating further damaged areas and increasing the expenses related to restoration.
As we work in your residence, SERVPRO restores not only your home's structure, but also your personal belongings and household items. Furniture typically suffers horribly from extensive flooding, but a rapid response can often minimize the damage enough that it is possible to save unique items.
Carpeting and the padding underneath also become damaged beyond the point of reclaiming. Disposal of wet soggy carpet, laden with pathogens and other filth occurs in sections. This aids in the distribution of the weight, as well as easier bagging for removal to the curb. Removing all tacks makes sure that the area remains safe for children and pets who might wander in before new carpet installation.
Because the moisture in a home after flood events remains elevated until we eliminate it all, we immediately begin drying out a flood-damaged home. Large air movers, heaters, dehumidifiers and other pieces of our equipment help achieve our goals. Directing airflow out open windows can also speed things up when the temperature outside is warm, and the air outside is drier than that inside your home.
While saving carpeting after a flood is next-to-impossible, saving hardwood floors by drying them quickly is achievable when we use heated floor mats that also remove the evaporated moisture before it ever enters your home's indoor environment.
SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe helps homeowners all around our area deal with flood damage and many other types of disasters. Contact us at (775) 588-2355 for our 24-hour service to start your home's recovery off right.

How Our Team Will Restore Your Stateline Home
A mold infestation needs immediate attention contact SERVPRO right away.
Why Homeowners in Stateline Call us to Repair Mold Damage
The assessment and remediation of mold is a professional job. Air-borne mold spores can quickly spread around the home causing further damage if the affected area is not treated possible using the right methods, expertise, and equipment. A thorough mold inspection can help to reduce the risk of secondary damages as well as the return of mold after service is complete. Getting to the source of the problem and removing it is essential.
Home holds with mold damage in Stateline can become unpleasant for their inhabitants creating musty odors and staining. SERVPRO uses technicians with mold assessment and remediation qualifications and can send them to your property within four hours of notification of loss. On arrival, our highly trained experts can find the source of mold in the home and begin working to remove it.
During the removal procedure, it is necessary for us to establish barriers. Mold spores are microscopic so, during intensive agitative cleaning methods, they can become airborne and spread to other parts of the home. SERVPRO can use negative air pressure or physical barriers in the form of plastic sheeting to prevent spreading into unaffected areas. Our equipment is fitted with HEPA filters which can filter mold spores out of the air and prevent a reoccurence of the issue.
Fabrics tend to absorb mold colonies in a way that may make clothing, upholstery, carpets or curtains non-salvageable. SERVPRO is a restoration provider that values restoration over replacement. We use foam cleaners to help absorb and sanitize affected fabrics. For precious fabrics, we can use industrial strength mechanical cleaning equipment, Esporta washing machines, which are capable of removing up to 96% of soils from material.
Getting your home back to its best should not be a stressful experience. Many homeowners choose SERVPRO because we provide extensive training to our technicians allowing them to gain IICRC certificates in areas like mold assessment and remediation. Our equipment is second to none, and we use a local workforce to reduce callout times.
Noticing mold in the home need not be a tough experience, just contact SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe at (775) 588-2355.

Why You Need SERVPRO For Mold Remediation In Your Stateline Home
At this time of year, mold is probably the last issue on the minds of folks in Stateline. It is too cold outside for almost anything to thrive, but that is where residents make their mistake. Inside, it is nice and warm, just right for mold spores to grow with enough moisture.
That is why many Stateline residents still need mold remediation, even in winter. So why call SERVPRO instead of another agency? No other business trains and equips its restoration teams to handle mold as we do. From certified inspectors to the latest tools for literally blasting mold out of a home, our company brings the best to every home.
To determine the extent of a mold colony, our inspectors use air content meters to augment their visual inspection. The meters allow us to trace mold behind walls without drilling holes or other compromising the drywall panels of the home’s interior.
Finding the extent of the colony’s growth also gives us the origin point. That is where we also find the source of moisture that allowed the inert spores to expand and grow. After finding it, team members spray the area with an anti-fungal agent to kill the spores and then clean up both the mold and the water source.
In many cases, SERVPRO technicians can clean and remove mold using the anti-fungal cleaners and either wiping down or scraping the mold off affected surfaces. When the mold goes undetected over a long period, the mold layer can become very thick and penetrate surfaces, even the wood beams in ceiling and roof supports.
If that happens, team members use a new method called soda blasting to remove the mold. They use a specially designed high-pressure spray device to force sodium bicarbonate into a concentrated stream. It can clear out even deeply penetrated mold spores without compromising the integrity of the supports.
Regardless of how far mold has grown into your home, SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe has the training and equipment to clean and remove it. If you have seen mold or detect that distinctive, ‘musty’ odor, call us today at (775) 588-2355 to schedule an inspection.
