Franchise owners Josh, and Jenny Dishman, have over 41 years of combined restoration and construction experience, and they have been serving the business community of Macomb County for many years.

Water is invasive, and the longer it is allowed to remain standing, the greater the chances of having secondary damage. We use advanced technology and techniques to extract the water quickly and thoroughly dry the areas.

Moisture Detection and Measurement

  • Surface moisture meters
  • Infrared imagery
  • Evasive moisture detectors
  • Video borescope

Water Extraction Equipment

We use powerful extraction equipment to speed the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal

Drying Equipment

We use industrial-strength air movers and dehumidifiers to remove the remaining moisture from ceilings, walls, and floors. Proper drying helps prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed air movers cause moisture to evaporate at a faster pace
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air

Storm-Damaged Business in New Baltimore?

1/19/2022 (Permalink)

Someone is using a snowblower to remove snow from the entrance to a building. We mitigate commercial storm damage 24-hours a day in Macomb County.

Have you ever been caught in a severe storm at work? Severe weather is typical during the winter months in New Baltimore, and SERVPRO® of Mount Clemens, New Baltimore, often responds to storm damage emergencies during the winter months.

Here are some tips from the United States Small Business Administration for creating a checklist of things to do during a storm:

  • Heaters, snow blowers, generators, and cold-weather equipment should be located where it is most likely used
  • Keep driveways, walkways, and doorways clear of snow and ice
  • Open water faucets slightly to let them drip in order to keep water flowing through the pipes that are vulnerable to freezing. Ice may still form, but the open faucet helps prevent the pipe from bursting by allowing relief for any built-up pressure.
  • Names and phone numbers of your heating contractor, plumber, fire department, insurance agent, and building owner should be easily accessible
  • Have someone assigned to check indoor temperatures should your place of business be vacant for long periods of time

Blizzard in Mount Clemens?

1/11/2022 (Permalink)

A blizzard creates zero visibility “whiteout” conditions. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Macomb County.

SERVPRO® of Mount Clemens, New Baltimore, has been restoring storm damage for many years in Macomb County. Mount Clemens residents may recall the Great Blizzard of 1978. On January 25, 1978, a storm that initially began as rain quickly changed to heavy snow leading to frequent whiteouts and zero visibility on January 26. The Great Blizzard of 1978 was the most extensive and one of the most severe blizzards in Michigan history. Twenty people died from heart attacks or traffic accidents caused by the blizzard. Many people were hospitalized for exposure due to losing heat and power in their homes. An estimated 100,000 cars were abandoned on Michigan highways.

We typically arrive onsite within four hours of your call. Upon arrival, we will tarp and board up any area exposed to the elements to minimize the potential for secondary damage and immediately begin the cleanup and restoration process. We will contact your insurance adjuster, and we can help with the insurance paperwork and process.

Smoke Damage in New Baltimore Building?

12/20/2021 (Permalink)

Smoke is filling a room. We restore smoke and fire-damaged businesses in Macomb County.

SERVPRO® of Mount Clemens, New Baltimore, has been restoring fire damage for New Baltimore businesses for many years. Smoke odor is one of the most challenging things to remove. Here are examples of some of the equipment we use to remove smoke odor:

High-Efficiency Particulate Arresting (HEPA) Filter

This is the highest quality air filter available and is certified to remove 99.97 percent of all particles down to 0.3 microns in size.

Activated Carbon Filter

Often used along with a HEPA filter, this is most useful in removing gases, chemicals, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

Ionizer

An ionizer emits negative ions, which cause airborne particles to collect into the air filter or onto the floor or walls. This can reduce allergens in the air to as small as 0.1 microns.

Ozone Machines

These machines release ozone into the air. The oxidation that occurs changes the chemical structure of smoke, other odors. After a few hours, the smoke odor is removed from the room.

Thermal Foggers

A deodorizer is heated and sprayed in a fog form. This delivery method can penetrate tiny areas and effectively eliminate even the most stubborn odors.
