Commercial Gas Leak Caused A Shut Down Mold on the Food

A nearby town had a gas leak that caused many businesses and homeowners to evacuate immediately. Some of the businesses were restaurants that had to leave everything as was being prepped for the day and walk away. The buildings have sat for three weeks with no power and no one allowed to enter them. 

Our crews knew what to expect when entering the first restaurant. A definite foul smell and a little mold on all the food sitting open on the prep tables. We took careful consideration when dumping all contents from the walk-in refrigerators/freezers and what was left in the fryers. Pressure washers and the proper chemicals took care of the rest.

After most major storms we get flooded with phone calls from customers that have found out where their house has sprung a few leaks. It varies from corners of the house, to roof leaks, to window seals not keeping the rain out.

In this picture, the homeowner called us because after a windy storm they found water on the floor of their utility room. The window was built many years ago and the seal around it had rotted. Since the storm winds were high, it blew the rain in enough that we had to extract the water and dry the room out.

Commercial Flir Technology for Water Damage FLIR Infrared Camera Picture

The FLIR Infrared Camera is used to identify areas of investigation for water damage and can document the water's location after a storm

How It Works:
When water evaporates, it happens to cool the surface temperature of what is wet. The Infrared cameras identify temperature differentials in order to locate potential damage from the water. Infrared technology visually displays thermal differences using color (as shown in the picture). The purple areas are the water damage and the yellow areas are dry. This allows our technicians to know what area of the walls need to be removed and how much moisture is captured under the floor. The thermal accuracy is within 2% or -2% Celsius.

SERVPRO of South Austin uses state of the art technology when at someones business or home.
