SERVPRO of The Windsors' Responds to Unique Situations!

10/17/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO green van in a driveway one garage door boarded up, debris on the ground. Our crew worked through the evening to make this structure safe for our homeowner!

No two days alike…it’s something we say here all the time.  We see water, fire, and mold daily.  We see so many surprising things! Our unique encounters extend even beyond the trinity of remediation.

This week we have responded to a couple of unique scenes! Last night after everyone left for the day we received a call for an emergency board-up.  That is not so unusual. The reason for it, however, was unexpected.  A homeowner was in her vehicle when it accelerated and rammed into her garage!

Fortunately, outside of a reasonable fright, no one is hurt and our homeowner is in good spirits planning to make this one of those things you look back on and laugh at, but that is down the road, in the immediate future we have to deal with the property damage.

Unfortunately, this will not be an overnight repair so while we evaluate and strategize to determine the master plan, we must first make the structure safe for the time being. 

Ernie, one of our construction project managers took the reins. Working in the evening, our crew set up emergency lighting and got straight to make the emergency temporary repairs.  We installed support beams and boarded up the garage door.

While the temporary repairs will allow the family to safely stay in their home, there is much work to be done. The scope will include packing out the garage, reframing the property, installing new drywall, and re-siding the property.  The work will take a couple of weeks and we will be with our homeowner’s throughout the process.  Keep an eye out to see the project unfold.

And remember, if you need us SERVPRO of The Windsors is ready for whatever happens!
