Using the Matterport camera is one of the ways our team stays prepared by helping to locate water and electricity sources in a commercial space. This camera captures a space in a 3D format, allowing a user to virtually move through a space. For SERVPRO professionals, this allows them to locate the source of damage and assess the loss further.

Burst Pipes Causing Damage

When a pipe bursts in a residential home, it can lead to a slew of issues such as hidden microbial growth and building materials getting ruined. SERVPRO has the experience, equipment and expertise to restore damage of this type and is always Here to help.

Air scrubber on floor

Air Scrubbers Provide Safer Air

A SERVPRO air scrubber helps to filter the air and provide safer living and breathing conditions. Typically following a job that involves microbial growth, air scrubbers filter out airborne particles and release cleaner air. Additionally, these machines are used during demolition jobs when debris and dust are present in the air and when fans from water jobs push these particles around.

When Disaster "Strikes"

A storm that damages your home is something you can never be prepared for. This residential home needed to be boarded up following a lightning strike that started a fire and, thanks to SERVPRO’s 24-hour emergency service, our teams were able to prevent the home from taking on further water damage. When disaster “strikes” call the ones who are Here to help.

Large Space Water Damage

When a commercial building has water damage following a storm or other disaster, it can affect carpeting throughout the space. Sitting, wet carpet may lead to safety concerns such as microbial growth, which is why hiring a team of SERVPRO professionals is the right decision. They’ll get the job done right while staying prompt and professional. Using fans, desiccant and dehumidifiers, SERVPRO teams dried out the water from this carpet and carefully examined atmospheric readings to determine moisture levels. To make your commercial damage seem “Like it never even happened,” do not hesitate to hire the team with the most expertise and efficiency, SERVPRO.

Insulation Removal

When blown-in insulation gets wet after a storm or other water-related happenings, it gets packed down and loses its value and can develop microbial growth. Using trained professionals and quality experience, SERVPRO is able to remove the insulation in your home to keep your space running at its best potential. Removing insulation can be dangerous and should be completed by professionals who understand the dangers of fiberglass and asbestos, two unsafe substances that can be a safety concern. SERVPRO uses commercial insulation vacuums to remove the insulation and can inspect the area for further damage. After that, new insulation can be blown in, and the job is done!

Flood Cut After Water Damage

SERVPRO’s large loss team is ready for any job the day throws at it and can be there to clean and restore properties following water damage or flooding. When water sits on drywall, it can lead to microbial growth and will damage parts of the wall and insulation. This is why SERVPRO professionals will perform a flood cut, as seen in the image above. Drywall will be removed above where the water damage stopped and the interior wall can be inspected for safety concerns. Materials are either dried out to be reconstructed later or disposed of if microbial growth is apparent. If you run into the unfortunate situation that is flooding in your home, you can now be aware of the process that will be done at SERVPRO with a flood cut.

Bad Grout Get Out!

The tile and grout on the floor or walls can become dirty and soiled over time with heavy use, leading to discoloration and staining of the grout. Fixing this cosmetic problem can be timely or strenuous, which is why SERVPRO offers professional tile cleaning to its clients. Using a mix of SERVPRO proprietary products, including a heavy-duty degreaser, industrial cleaner, and a tile and grout cleaner, along with a pressurized rotary tool, SERVPRO technicians work to scrub and steam tiles to cleanliness. Neglecting to clean tiles and grout can also lead to dangerous microbial growth buildup underneath the surface and slippery, unsafe walking surfaces. To keep this from happening, take advantage of SERVPRO’s professional tile and grout cleaning service and have your floors sparkling and safe again.

Work-Life Balance

If a positive work-life balance is something you value in a job, look no further than a career with SERVPRO. Our company, which is always Here to help®, knows that family time and hobbies outside of work are important. If workers are not on call to take phone calls or restore homes and commercial spaces at any time, they are encouraged to leave SERVPRO duties at the door. SERVPRO also realizes how important each employee’s family is to him or her. So, when marketing events take place, children and family are invited to join. If a positive work-life balance is of value to you, consider sending a resume to

Affected Area Closed Off By A Containment

Containments Are Our BEST FRIENDS!

Here at SERVPRO, we work in affected areas of a home that our client could still occupy. To ensure we close off the affected area, we will use contaminants to separate the two areas. We set contaminants on fire, water, mold, and reconstruction job to either close off the area or to help speed up the restoration process. It speeds up the restoration time because it keeps the airflow in the affected area. Fire jobs keep the soot/smoke damage in the affected areas to keep the affected area from spreading. Contaminants are used on water jobs to help dry a specific room by making the affected area smaller. Reconstruction or demolition uses containments to keep dust particles from spreading to other parts of the home/business.

When We Are Needed, We Bring The Heat

You never have to guess with SERVPRO of Lake of the Ozarks because we will be there when disaster strikes. When we get the approval from the client to start work on a job affected by a fire, we will immediately place a Vapor Shark to help eliminate the persistent odor that remains. We do this because we immediately want to provide results for our clients. After all, the sooner their disasters get solved, they can return to normal. Once our Project Manager scopes and sketches the building into our software, it will generate a total number and the equipment's location to receive the results we want. If you have a project where you need the SERVPRO Heat, please call our team at (573) 346-7200.

Office Manager, Lauren returning items to client who experienced a disaster.

Returning Happiness to Our Clients!

We've talked about the steps we will take when restoring your property and contents. Our employees worked endless hours to restore your family picture of your mom and dad, who are no longer with us. Norma and Cindy have spent long hours wiping every inch of the content to eliminate any evidence of the disaster you experienced. The time to return the restored items to our clients has fully recovered from the fire they experienced. I wish you could feel the emotions people share with you as they look through the boxes of contents we saved. It's a genuinely emotional experience that brings our team joy because it shows them that the hard work paid off. By choosing SERVPRO of Lake of the Ozarks, you are working with a team that will welcome you into our family.

The Ozone Equipment being utilized to eliminate the smoke odor.

The Ozone Chamber to the Rescue!

We here at SERVPRO of Lake of the Ozarks are proud that we have access to what’s called an Ozone Chamber. We utilize it when we get contents that went through heavy smoke damage as the ozone chamber produces molecules that have third oxygen bonded. When these molecules hit smoke, it captures it and eliminates it. If contents have microbial growth, the 03 attaches itself to the bacteria, odors, germs and destroys the cell wall. Our Content specialist utilizes this chamber frequently as it helps eliminate the stubborn smoke smell.

If you ever experience a fire, call our staff at (573) 346-7200, and we will be happy to assist you with restoring your property/contents.

Contents Restored To Pre-loss Condition

Content Cleaning is a service we provide for those who have experienced some form of disaster. The clients who use this service the most are victims to fire damage as the smell and soot get captured in the fabric. It’s important to know that different materials hold smoke more than others, so we have employees on staff that are content specialists. Their primary focus is to ensure that the items receive the TLC love they deserve so that they get restored to the preloss condition by knowing the proper procedures to take when cleaning and restoring our client’s property. If you ever see them in the shop, you will notice the q-tips that allow them to get into every knock and cranny. The content specialist takes great pleasure in restoring our client’s items because when they are returned, you can see/feel the emotions brought by having the sentimental items back.

Crew Chief gathering moisture readings to report back to project manager.

Moisture Readings with Hunter

One of our Crew Chiefs showed our Marketing Support Coordinator (MSC) how to use the Moisture Meter properly. If this were a video, you would hear Hunter, crew chief, stating the readings such as 64. That means that drywall is 64% saturated which a normal moisture reading is 12-15% saturated. We can keep a detailed log to ensure we are making progress by documenting the progress. The documentation gathered helps our crew remove unnecessary equipment as the job progresses. Now that Hunter was able to collect the information needed, he will then report to the project manager to advise what the next steps are.
