Local Church Relies on SERVPRO of The Windsors!
The church was left clean and orderly, ready for repairs!
After suffering from water intrusion stemming from roof damage, a local church in East Hartford called us in to perform the water mitigation and subsequent repair work. Our mitigation scope consisted first of asbestos testing, to ensure the building materials were safe to remove. Next, the crew moved on to the demolition. The demo consisted of the removal of the carpeting, drywall wall and ceiling, and insulation. These materials were removed for a few reasons. Carpeting often becomes delaminated while water gets trapped in insulation and requires removal to ensure proper drying and prevent secondary damage. After demo, our crew cleaned and disinfected all the affected areas before setting up drying equipment to dry out the framing and subfloor. After the materials achieved the drying goals, our crew removed the equipment, completing the job. The church was left dry, clean, and ready to move right into repairs. Check back on the blog to see the repairs once we complete the repair work!
Local Hotel Trusts SERVPRO of The Windsors
Like it never even happened!
Experiencing a water damage loss is trying at any time, experiencing water damage after wrapping up extensive renovations, is agonizing. A local hotel experienced that very fate recently. Having just finished renovations the hotel was ready to reopen its door and welcome their customers and community. However, soon after reopening, there was a pipe break! The damage created was extensive, over three inches of water accumulated in over a dozen rooms.
The manager reached out immediately for emergency services. Working after hours our crew responded to first extract the water throughout the building. We used two trucks mounts and a portable unit to extract as quickly as possible. After all the water was removed our team cleaned and disinfected the surface areas. Once the area was free of water and germs our team set up drying equipment. The drying equipment will work to remove the moisture both in the air and from the building materials.
The benefit of the immediate response is substantial. Since the water was removed so quickly and followed by an aggressive dry out, the property owners will be able to minimize the amount of demolition and subsequent repairs.
If you experience a similar situation we can help. As always, we are standing by, ready to respond to your emergencies. If you need us, please reach out at any time.
Local Firefighter House Calls in SERVPRO of The Windsors for Cleaning Services.
SERVPRO of The Windsors is honored to help and support our local heroes!
While making improvements to the sleeping quarters at a local firehouse, insulation was mistakenly released from the ceiling. The fallen insulation created quite the mess by covering the space with minuscule particles. It is not uncommon for older insulation materials to contain vermiculate and fiberglass. Realizing the potential health risks and risk of contamination SERVPRO of The Windsors was called in to clean the space. Due to the minuteness of the particles, we chose the hepa vacuuming method. Hepa-vacuuming is a thorough cleaning process we implore for mold remediation and soot remediation and can capture minuscule particles. The vacuuming is then followed up with washing and then disinfecting of all areas. The end result is a thoroughly cleaned and safe habitable space that allows our local heroes to keep their focus on their important work. Thank you for trusting SERVPRO of The Windsors.

SERVPRO Remediates Realty Office
SERVPRO of The Windsors is proud to service our commercial customers.
A local realtor’s office recently suffered from water damage. The source of the damage was a broken pipe. The pipe was overhead and literally rained on to the company’s main office. Once the pipe broke the staff promptly shut off the water. Though the customer acted quickly there was a substantial amount of water released.
Our team responded immediately, working quickly to extract the water. After the extraction, our team sanitized, cleaned, and set up drying equipment. The prompt response time made it possible to salvage the carpet. After a few short days with the equipment in place the carpet and other building materials reached the drying goals. Our team removed the equipment and got out of the hairs of this business so they can get back to focusing on their customers.
SERVPRO of The Windsors Tackles Hemp Factory
Hemp has a potent odor, SERVPRO of The Windsors assists with deodorization.
We love new challenges and jump at opportunities to venture into unchartered waters, so when we received a call for deodorization of a hemp factory we thought, that’s a first! We then promptly got to work. We coordinated our team, put on our thinking caps, and crafted a plan of attack!
The issue our customer was facing was the hemp odor being so strong it permeated other buildings in the area, which in turn was leaving staff with headaches and general feelings of un-wellness.
There were a few different options we considered each with its own benefits, we proposed a few different options to our client. We had to be honest, there were no guarantees, there would be a level of trial and error.
Ultimately, we decided to set up containment and set up air filtration equipment on a large scale. The containment around the large garage doors limited the outflow of the malodor. Then we set up numerous commercial size air scrubbers. Air scrubbers pull air from the environment and passing it through a combination of filters removes the contaminants. We are changing the filters out as needed and keeping an eye on the space at the time being.
We are pleased to inform you our methods are effective! Thanks to our industry knowledge we were able to use our past experiences to tacks a new issue. SERVPRO of The Windsors are figure-it-outters!
