What happens when birds nest in a home?

What happens when birds nest in a home?

The home in this shot has experienced multiple issues. It was originally affected by a fire.

The fire created a hole in the ceiling and water was used to put out the fire. While the water was extracted and the fire cleaned up, during a prolonged rebuild the structure became a nesting site for birds.

The summer arrived and the birds expired, it was at  this stage that SERVPRO was called.

We offered Bio-hazard clean-up and resealed the ceiling.

The first was central palm desert, with over 100 downed palm trees, the gardeners were busy; The second was in mecca/thermal area. The force of the wind in that area was enough to snap wooden telephone pole lines and bend the metal poles beyond repair.

Right size tool for the job

Right size tool for the job

When the project starts to ramp up in scale, you want to use the right size tool for the job. In our area we have some homes that are almost the size of small commercial buildings.

For this type of project we recommend larger dessicants. They handle the load and dont require the extensive documentation that multiple smaller units have.
