water running down basement stairs This waterfall was caused by a burst sprinkler valve.

This Omaha, NE church had a break in their lawn irrigation system overnight, causing water damage to a few rooms on the main level and flooding in the entire basement.  Since our team had previously developed an Emergency Ready Plan (ERP) for the church, they were better prepared and able to shut the water off and begin the cleanup process quicker, saving them thousands.  This disaster pre-planning enabled our technicians to split up and focus on preventing further damage to the most at-risk areas of the basement while the other team set up drying equipment.   

As a result of the pre-planning and fast response of the SERVPRO of Sarpy County team, the basement storage area was spared from permanent damage and church operations were not impacted.

During the historic floods earlier this year, a local Bellevue business suffered extensive water damage.  The lower level of the building was under several feet of flood water for weeks before the flood waters receded enough that our crews could access the site safely.

Our SERVPRO crews removed and cataloged all contents for insurance documentation, then began the process of removing drywall and insulation.  After stripping the walls down to the studs, we clean and dry the structure to remove mold growth.  Finally, we apply an anti-microbial to kill any mold growth that may remain.

Flooded Gym Floor In The Omaha, NE Area

floor mat drying system on gym floor SERVPRO was able to save the gym floor with our wood floor drying system.

SERVPRO of Sarpy County was recently called out to a nearby business after the gymnasium floor suffered water damage.  The wood floor boards were already beginning to swell and buckle. In most cases, hardwood flooring can be expensive to replace. Not only can the water warp the boards, but it can also seep between the boards and cause them to separate from the glue. Our team uses specialized drying equipment and dehumidifiers to remove water from the floor as well as the air. Using our top of the line equipment, we are able to clean the water as well as any dirt under the boards. If we did not use this equipment it would be easier for mold and harmful bacteria to grow. SERVPRO of Sarpy County is trained to properly care for your hardwood flooring problems.

9/10/2018 (Permalink)

During my time in the military and later in private sector IT, I routinely heard “if you fail to plan, you can plan to fail” and while I used to roll my eyes and groan at this tired old cliché, my experience with SERVPRO has proven it to be true on a regular basis.  The recent fire at Pettit’s Pastry in Omaha is just one recent example of the need to be prepared. According to the Omaha World Herald article, several business were affected and fortunately, a few of them are able to conduct business from alternate locations.

Since September is National Preparedness Month, it is a great time to consider your level of disaster preparedness at your business. As a trusted partner in the Omaha business community, we would like to share a few free disaster preparedness tools for your business.
Ready.gov is a great resource for all aspects of preparedness, from planning to implementing an effective disaster plan.

Preparation is the key to making it through any size disaster. Having a plan in place may help minimize the amount of time your business is inactive and get you back in the building following the disaster.

SERVPRO of Sarpy County recently handled a large commercial water loss in Omaha.  The main water valve failed, resulting in an estimated 200,000 gallons of water in a vacant retail space.

We were called shortly after midnight and arrived 30 minutes later to find several inches of standing water throughout the space.  There was so much water, the city had to block the street so we could open the front doors.

Our crews were able to assist the property manager with getting the property cleaned and dried in short order.  Among the benefits of calling SERVPRO of Sarpy County is that we are available 24 x 7 and able to handle losses from a small residence to a large commercial job.
