Storm Damage in Kennett Square Home

7/23/2020 (Permalink)

Our storm restoration team recently completed water mitigation for a home in Kennett Square after a heavy rainstorm.  The rain had entered the property and flooded their basement.  Some of their contents were affected as well.  This is often an overwhelming situation for our customers, and one that we strive to make better.

Our crew visited the property immediately to start the water cleanup and restoration process.  Once we had removed the debris and extracted all signs of water from the basement, we used a large sum of equipment in order to fully dry the affected areas.  Twelve air movers and two dehumidifiers were placed in the basement for over two days, in order to ensure no water or future mold damage would occur.  We then cleaned the floor with our anti-microbial cleaning agent and left the basement good as new.

When it comes to storm damage, SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford is happy to help!  In addition to services in fire, water and mold damage, we also offer reconstruction services and can help in the event of roof damage and other storm-related events.  Please give us a call for more information at 610-268-8620.

Great Progress for Kennett Square Businesses after Fire Damage

Before and After Photos of Cleanup Process for New Garden Plaza fire This was just the beginning of our services performed at the New Garden Plaza II. We are still hard at work at this commercial center.

SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford is hard at work with continuing to help restore a couple of our local commercial centers after the devastating fires they suffered this year.  Both fires broke out in Kennett Square and the businesses affected had suffered severe damages.  Our crew, however, has come a long way and these buildings are strongly progressing towards a new beginning.

One of the commercial centers that we are currently helping to restore is the Willowdale Town Center.  After a fire broke out in early January and had affected three of our local businesses, we rushed to the scene immediately to help.  The buildings have changed drastically for the better since then.  We recently completed sealing, demo, and odor containment for the Sovana Bistro and Nicholas Anthony Salon and Day Spa.  In addition, we are happy to announce that the once-collapsed roof of the building has now been replaced with the help of another reconstruction company.

Our fire restoration team is also moving along quickly at the New Garden Plaza II.  This fire occurred last month and affected all six businesses in the business center.  We have been dedicated to restoring the damages since day one, and we have stayed busy with packing out and cleaning the damaged content, pulling insulation and performing demolition to some of the affected areas of the structure.

Reconstruction will now begin, and the entire roof of the business center will be replaced and restored in a few short weeks.  There will be many other improvements to the building, including new walls, floors, and ceilings.  Electrical and plumbing will be restored as well.

We are thrilled to be making great progress, and hope to have these great businesses back up and running soon! For more information on our fire restoration and reconstruction services for your home or business, please give us a call at 610-268-8620. We offer 24/7 emergency services for fire and water damage in our local community.

Basement Water Leak in Coatesville

2/21/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford has been staying busy with helping to restore local properties from water damage.  Sump pump failures and water leaks have been very common this month.  One such water leak disaster that we were happy to help resolve was for a homeowner in Coatesville.

After experiencing a water leak in her unfinished basement, the homeowner called us to remove the water and clean up the affected areas.  Since the water was not properly mitigated immediately, the area now had a musty smell and needed a deeper cleaning.

Our water restoration professionals removed all signs of water and dirt residue from the floors and then dried the affected areas for a full 24-hour period.  Once the areas were fully dry, we applied our plant-based microbial cleaning agent to all surfaces, and even cleaned her laundry appliances.

At SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford, we clean contents as well and can even restore documents that are not too overly damaged.  We are happy to help in any way that we can when it comes to a water, fire or mold damage event.

Commercial Fire Restoration for Three Businesses

1/27/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford recently received a call from one of our local fire chiefs to help restore a commercial building damaged by a large fire at the Willowdale Town Center in Kennett Square.  The fire drastically damaged the building, which contains four businesses. 

The fire began around 2:00 AM and unfortunately destroyed a large portion of the Sovana Bistro, the Nicholas Anthony Salon and Day Spa as well as a neighboring business, Donze & Donze.  Our crews were on site immediately to board up the businesses.  Once the affected areas were boarded up and the property owners were ready to move forward, we were then asked to complete fire restoration and to clean the damaged contents as well.  This was an extremely dangerous fire, and we had to be cautious of the roof of the Bistro, which eventually collapsed from the extensive fire damage.

This has been a long process for all parties, and our restoration team is still hard at work to repair the damages.  Although it will be a long road for these businesses to fully get back on their feet due to the extent of the destruction, we will keep working to make the fire “Like it never even happened!"

SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford is proud to offer fire restoration services for our local community.  We answer the call for help immediately so that the proper safety measures and actions can be taken starting at the first hour of the loss. Contact us today to learn more!
