fire extinguisher being sprayed Fire extinguisher dust clean up in Oregon City.

Fire extinguishers can save lives by putting out a fire before it spreads but they also make a huge mess. So even though the fire may have been stopped and no actual smoke or soot clean up is required there is still cleanup that will need to be done. The powder from fire extinguishers is incredibly fine and spreads, just as it is designed to do it spreads out and coats and covers everything. This is great as far as fire safety and putting out fires goes, but when it comes to clean up it makes it a bit of a challenge. SERVPRO of Gresham & SERVPRO of Oregon City/Sandy has the skills and experience to clean up the nastiest of messes including that from a fire extinguisher.

Toilet with water on the ground Appliance breaks cause leaks and flooding, trust SERVPRO of Gresham & SERVPRO of Oregon City/Sandy.

When people think of damage in their home or office from flooding they often think of crazy heavy rains and flash floods. But flooding and water damage can occur with just an appliance break or a toilet overflow. As water runs and spreads around the property water is seeping in and soaking up into materials like sheetrock and insulation causing them to break down. Materials like sheetrock and insulation do not hold up well to water, especially for sustained periods of time. Our SERVPRO of Gresham & SERVPRO of Oregon City/Sandy team of skilled professionals will work to preform flood cuts of affected insulation and sheetrock from the floor up to four feet as needed, helping to make the repairs that much more smooth to patch in new installation and sheetrock.
