Knowing where your water shut off valve is located in your home or business is EXTREMLEY IMPORTANT! If you have a pipe break or any kind of leak in your home or business, stopping the water is the single most important way to limit the amount of damage.

SERVPRO knows that when you have a fire in your home or business it is very difficult to deal with the aftermath. That is why the cleanup experts at SERVPRO are always here to help. Our fire damage restoration team has over 50 years of combined experience to help put your home or business back together as quickly as possible. One main concern after a fire is the damage from soot and smoke.

The soot from a fire damage can leave stains and nasty odors. One way SERVPRO restores fire-damaged materials is with a media blasting process using dry ice or sand. Media blasting helps remove odor-causing soot and saves money by restoring costly building materials, instead of replacing them. This is just one way SERVPRO can help in the restoration of your home or business after a fire.

Cleaning up water damage

A fan is in the middle of a bunch of rooms Cleaning up water damage

SERVPRO of Leavenworth and NW Wyandotte County has seen all kinds of water damage in almost every residential and commercial space you can imagine. And all homes and properties can present unique challenges when it comes to extracting water and drying. These 4 spaces are the most problematic, and here's why.

  1. Duct systems: Some duct systems are made of fragile, porous materials making it difficult to dry.
  2. Attics: They are hard to get equipment into, tend to have electrical hazards, and may require removing insulation.
  3. Basements: Can be unfinished with lots of porous materials that would need disposing of in Category 2 or 3 water.
  4. Crawl Space: They are hard to get equipment into and low temperatures require supplemental heat to warm the space and keep the equipment safe.
