Commercial Water damage at the Holiday Inn Equipment set in the first floor hallway

Early one morning SERVPRO of Alton, Edwardsville & Granite City received a call that a pipe busted and three floors were affected in the hotel.

Our crews were there and started the clean up process around 5 am. After a little over 6 hours we had all the water extracted from the carpets, sanitized ever affected area, removed wet ceiling tiles and baseboards and set all the drying equipment.

The hotel was happy with how quickly our crews arrived on site and began working.

Cleaning up a birds nest in an attic.

Commercial Cleaning up a birds nest in an attic. Now that's a birds nest!

Our office received a call about a five foot birds nest in an attic. Now we weren't really thinking we would find a five foot birds nest in an office attic; but sure enough there was! As you can see in this photo the customer was not exaggerating. The bird or birds had to have building that nest for a while. If you find any kind of nest in your attic do not move anything or touch it. You can release the spores or whatever else is in the nest and cause you and your coworkers to be at risk of getting sick.

Did you know SERVPRO removes/cleans up after birds or animals? Our crews will come in and remove the nest, feces, insulation and sanitize anything that was affected by the bird or animal.

If you have a pest problem and need a good cleaning give our office a call!
