Why SERVPRO Whatever it takes Standing water? No problem!

The SERVPRO of Greater Broken Arrow team is wrapping up a project at a public building in an area town. The staff at this popular location was not expecting to arrive to work and find standing water throughout the facility. They already knew of the quality reputation displayed by the team at SERVPRO of Greater Broken Arrow and called us right away.

Of course our team quickly mobilized and had many hands on deck to assess the damage, begin water removal and the mitigation and drying process.

Building manager, Jeremy noted that in the 15 years he has been there, with the many projects he has overseen, and the problems that arose, he is very impressed with how well things are going. They will soon be up and running.

Better commuication

Why SERVPRO Better commuication Sam communicating important information even if on an after hours, emergency call.

When trying to discern where relationships or organizations have their biggest issues, it often boils down to communication. Too often one speaks one thing and another hears something entirely different. The end result of a "failure to communicate" is that not only is the goal not reached, but hardship, inefficiencies, frustrations or other errant consequences occur.

The SERVPRO of Greater Broken Arrow team is steadily increasing their diligence to let each team member know exactly what is being needed, seen, done, etc for each of our customers in real time. That has been so helpful to know how each one can support the team as we serve our valued customers.

By using explanations, diagrams, pictures, documents, etc. Each one has a reasonably accurate idea of how each job is going and how they might be able to assist a team member if the need arises.

We are also able to keep our customers updated on the progress of their individual job loss information. Call us. We would be honored to be the team to help you during an unexpected water, mold, or fire emergency!

Predicting the weather?

Storm Damage Predicting the weather? Enjoy the beauty of nature, while reading its signs.

Some, like my sister with her arthritic knees, have a built in weather predictor. Others rely on watching nature- they sky, of course, various bugs, cat behaviors, birds, certain plants, etc. I was reading the Farmer's Almanac website to see what an organization says that is 80% accurate about predicting the weather since 1792. 

It seems likely that the temperatures in our beautiful Green Country will be around or below normal, and the rainfall might be more common in areas away from Oklahoma. That sounds like a lot of outdoor opportunity for gardening, exploring The Gathering Place, baseball games, and picnics.

However, Oklahoma is always a candidate for thunderstorms and the possible tornadoes that they can bring. Stay weather aware. Be prepared for what ever happens. And call SERVPRO 918-250-2300 if you find your home or business impacted by unexpected water from storm or other causes. We are always ready to help!

Broken Arrow Roof Leak Creates Mold Risk

Mold Remediation Broken Arrow Roof Leak Creates Mold Risk If you suspect mold, give us a call.

Recently, a long-time Broken Arrow resident had the very unpleasant experience to witness multiple issues damage her home. Northeast Oklahoma's variety of seasons of wind, storm, hail, ice, and rain during extreme heat and very cold temperatures finally took its toll on her roof. Water had breached the protection that the roof is designed to provide.

Since she happens to be physically unable to access her attic, she was unaware of the water intrusion for an undetermined length of time. The situation built up until the evidence finally was visible on her ceilings. Upon discovery, she reached out to the local team at SERVPRO of Greater Broken Arrow.

We were able to quickly remove the water, the suspected mold and the contaminated, unrestorable items, dry out her home and help her to get her life back to a normal and peaceful future.

Mold is not anything to be casual about. Please give us a call if you also discover mold or water intrusion in your home or business. We are always ready to help!

Fire Damage Hidden dangers Electrician discovered melted wires in the metal J box

Sometimes you are looking for something specific and sometimes you discover something significant while searching. During a recent opportunity to serve a neighbor in our Broken Arrow community, a SERVPRO of Greater Broken Arrow team member observed something that just did not seem right. He wisely followed up his suspicion by scheduling a licensed electrician to investigate the situation.

What the electrician found revealed that the home owner was spared a major house fire. For some reason, whether it was due to poor installation, corrosion, overloading, or whatever, there was melted wiring in a location in the attic. The electrician stated that the metal J Box saved that homeowner. 

Please be vigilant that any electrical work in your home or business be handled by a professional, or at least one who has been properly trained to perform electrical work that meets or exceeds safety standards.

If you find yourself affected by smoke or fire, please call SERVPRO of Greater Broken Arrow. We are always ready to help.

Spared the snow/ice storm, but wind and rain came instead

Storm Damage Spared the snow/ice storm, but wind and rain came instead Storm-damaged roof in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

Northeastern Oklahoma was spared the fury of the winter storm that hit our fellow Oklahomans in the panhandle in December. Our meteorologists had given us plenty of warning about the potential of a significant winter storm affecting Green Country, then gradually lowered the alerts as the storm ingredients' characteristics changed. 

We did get plenty of rain, accompanied by note-worthy wind. This homeowner's roof was compromised by an Oklahoma storm. Rain that seeped through the roof affected areas in the attic, insulation, walls, ceilings (which gave way from the weight of becoming saturated), flooring and contents.

The SERVPRO of Greater Broken Arrow team was called in to remove the contaminated debris, contain the hole in the ceiling, begin drying the structure and contents, tarp the roof until repairs can be made. As we are working to get the residents' lives back to normal as quickly as possible, we are working within their insurance company's guidelines.
