Gaylord Tornado Disaster Recovery

Gaylord recently suffered catastrophic damage from an EF-3 tornado that had winds that reached up to 150 mph. Both residential neighborhoods and businesses suffered serious damage that will change lives forever. The following morning SERVPRO was ready to respond with all hands on deck in order to help those in need. We have been busy with both commercial and residential emergency board ups and tarp ups. This is imperative as it limits any extensive secondary damages if your home or business has been left exposed to any environmental factors. SERVPRO of Bellaire, Kalkaska, Lake City & Grayling's thoughts and prayers continue to go out to everyone in the Gaylord community.

Mackinac Island Contents Move Back

Whether it be by motor vehicle or horse-drawn dray, SERVPRO works hard to restore lives after any property damage loss. We have been busy on Mackinac Island returning contents by horse-drawn dray to a home that experienced a large fire loss last year. After our initial emergency mitigation services are performed, we work hard to get contents cleaned and returned to homeowners. This is one of our more unique content move backs in recent years!

Storm Response

With the extreme cold weather we are currently experiencing here in Northern Michigan, SERVPRO wants to make you aware of an additional service we can provide outside of our normal fire, water, mold restoration and general cleaning services.  This fall we purchased two large trailer mounted indirect heaters capable of producing up to 700,000 btu’s of dry heat that can be ducted directly into your building if the need arises.  These units are all self-contained with their own generator and fuel storage. In addition to temporary heat, we also have a 36kw pull behind diesel generator that can provide the needed power to keep your business essentials running in the event of a power outage. We want to give you some piece of mind that these services are available to you in the event of a power outage and or heat loss to your home or business.

Post Fire Soot Damage

A fire broke out in this apartment complex in Northern Michigan causing extensive fire, smoke, and soot damage throughout the complex. You may be wondering if those are spider webs in the picture above, but they are actually called soot webs. These are often times found after the instance of a fire. The soot particles end up bonding together and because of the circulation of the air will then cling to a wall, ceiling, or in between rafters as seen in the picture. 

SERVPRO is available 24/7 to help with any size fire or water disaster needs. We are always here to help and pride ourselves on making it "Like it never even happened." Call us in your time of need at 231-564-4014

Gymnasium Water Damage
