Local Apt Complex

An apartment complex that's located in Hartford, CT suffered from major fire and water damage. The aftermath rendered the complex's residents homeless. SERVPRO came as soon as the call was made and helped these families return to their homes as quickly as possible.

Malfunctioning Dishwasher

At a home in Stafford CT, flooding occurred from a dishwasher drain becoming clogged, destroying the flooring in the whole kitchen. SERVPRO of West Hartford came right over to give a helping hand drying everything and restoring the homeowners floor back to its original state. "Like it never even happened."

Hotel Pipe-Break

After a massive snow storm in West Hartford a local hotel had experienced a massive pipe-break. A main sprinkler system pipe broke on the top floor pouring tons of gallons of water every minute into the hotel. The water spread down to all five floors in the building and created so much humidity that a mold disaster broke out immediately afterwards. SERVPRO of West Hartford immediately dispatched their team and brought in 100 dehumidifiers, 200 air movers, and 53 air scrubbers to carefully dry every room to avoid allowing mold to spread any further.

Spend $800 to Save $30,000

A West Hartford homeowner had suffered a major water loss behind expensive kitchen cabinets. Standard procedure which would have been to cut through the cabinets to fix the plumbing. SERVPRO of West Hartford chose to save the cabinets by cutting through the pipes below the cabinets. It was a creative solution that cost $800 of repair work to the pipes but saved the newly installed ornate kitchen cabinets that the homeowner said had cost $30,000.

Sprinkler Pipe Breaks at Nonprofit

A sprinkler pipe break at a sizable West Hartford nonprofit agency damaged about 75,000 square feet of the agency. The agency’s ability to serve clients and keep its employees safe were affected. The agency chose SERVPRO of West Hartford to do all the restoration work. SERVPRO of West Hartford began by performing emergency water extraction of several inches of water. We then completely dried the area with industrial dryers and tested for mold and mildew. Next, we had removed and replaced all damaged building materials. During the work we discovered and removed hazardous asbestos and applied an anti-microbial spray. The nonprofit commented on the fast response, professional service, and SERVPRO's ability to safely remove hazardous material.

Water Damage Restoration

When we respond to water damage in West Hartford or anywhere else, people are usually surprised by the science and technology required to restore their property to its best possible condition. SERVPRO of West Hartford uses psychrometry to fight water damage. Psychrometry is the study of air and its properties (temperature, humidity, vapor pressure, dew point, etc.). Whether your dishwasher’s overflowed or flood waters have invaded or you’ve suffered other water damage, applying psychrometry can minimize the problem. It helps us control temperature and humidity levels. We also use many other tools like moisture sensors, moisture meters, and thermohygrometers to define how much moisture has been absorbed. You can not remove all the water if you don't know it's there.
