Commercial Water Damage
This commercial water damage happened on the 7th floor and ended up all the way on the bottom floor. This was due to the sprinkler system going off and crews were on the scene for a couple weeks to get everything back "Like It Never Even Happened!"

Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Every water damage situation is a little different, and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.
Step 1: Emergency Contact
Step 2: Inspection and Damage Assessment
Step 3: Water Removal/Water Extraction
Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Step 5: Cleaning and Repair
Step 6: Restoration
Faster To Any Size Disaster!
An immediate response helps to minimize the damage and the cleaning and restoration costs.
Water quickly spreads throughout your property, saturating everything in its path.
Water is absorbed into walls, floors, upholstery, and belongings.
Furniture finishes may bleed, causing permanent staining on carpets.
Photographs, books, and other paper goods start to swell and warp.
Storm Team Wilson
2016 has been very busy for Storm Team Wilson as we traveled to Houston early in the year, Louisiana, and then shortly after Georgia and surrounding states to help with flooding.
This year our office decided to collect money and donate instead of playing "dirty santa" or buying gifts for one another. We ended up buying numerous gift cards that were sent to The Lovelady Center for teenagers to enjoy Christmas. We're thankful for all the staff that contributed to a great cause!

They also can remove the pervasive smoke odor and deep-clean soot from upholstery and carpet.

Commercial Sewage Backup
The sewer main line backed up at this commercial property which affected multiple rooms.
There are three major types of contaminated water. SERVPRO of Birmingham will inspect that contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response to safely restore your home or business.
Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems.
Residential Water Damage
This residential water damage was caused by a pipe bursting in a concrete wall which affected the carpet and contents in the basement of the home. Carpet and padding had to be removed.
Flooding from Storm
If your home or business has been damaged by severe floods or storms, call us right away. Disaster can strike when we least expect it, but SERVPRO of Birmingham will be there to help you weather the storm.
Since we are locally owned and operated, we are able to respond quicker with the right resources, which is extremely important. A fast response lessens the damage, limits further damage, and reduces the restoration cost.
Resources to Handle Floods and Storms
When storms hit, we can scale our resources to handle a large storm or flooding disaster. We can access equipment and personnel from a network of 1,650 Franchises across the country and elite Disaster Recovery Teams that are strategically located throughout the United States.

BOMA Golf Tournament
SERVPRO of Birmingham has provided major sponsorship for BOMA fall golf tournament for many years. And this year may have been the best ever! SERVPRO's customer support staff worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this a great day of golf the BOMA and its guests alike. We appreciate the relationships we have made over the years through BOMA.
Golf Tournament 2016
Since SERVPRO has a partnership with the American Red Cross, all money raised at the tournament was matched and donated to our local chapter. Our team decided that it should go towards their Home Fire Prevention Campaign, which seemed only fitting. Fire Prevention Week was in October and we work closely with local fire departments as we try to promote fire safety.
Commercial Water Restoration
Here, we have a commercial water damage due to the sprinkler system bursting which affected 5 floors totaling 10,000 square feet. There was also at least 2-3 inches of standing water.

Whether your water emergency occurs in a small office building or big box store, we will respond quickly to mitigate the damage and manage the restoration project through to its completion.
Sewage Backups Should Be Considered Dangerous!
Here we have a basement level sewage backup. Sewage backups are grossly unsanitary and considered category 3 "black water" which can cause illness or even death. Any contact should be avoided especially if there is feces or microbial growth. This is an emergency situation which should be dealt with as soon as possible. SERVPRO of Birmingham has trained staff with expertise in this area, we can safely restore your home or business.
Residential Fire Damage
This is a residence where the dryer caught of fire leaving damage from smoke and soot. Don't wait around to give us a call. We make it "Like it never even happened."

Louisiana Flood 2016
In August 2016, prolonged rainfall hit the southern part of the state of Louisiana causing disastrous flooding. SERVPRO of Birmingham is headquarters for Storm Team Wilson. Which means when an immense disaster strikes in the South East part of the United States, our storm team becomes activated sending teams from franchises all over the country into the direct path that was hit; in this case, Louisiana. Pictured here, we have SERVPRO working in a local grocery store that was flooded and had to be completely gutted. Many homes and businesses were in ruin with a few feet of standing water, no power, and even damaged as high as the ceiling.
SERVPRO of Birmingham is expanding!
SERVPRO Industries, Inc. was founded in 1967. SERVPRO of Birmingham has been proud to serve the communities of Jefferson and Shelby counties since 1984. In 2007, we had outgrown our existing facilities, so we had to relocate some of our staff in multiple facilities in the Pelham and Chelsea/Westover areas. In January 2015, we broke ground on a 3-phase building project, designed to bring us all back into one location. Phase one was complete in December 2015, and now we are currently in phase two. We hope to complete this phase sometime in October, with a ribbon cutting in early November. Check out the progress!
