Hoarding is a recognized medical condition that, if left untreated can spiral very quickly out of control.  There are a variety of different hoarding compulsions ranging from new possessions to animals to keeping old trash and food.  Many times the hoarding is completely hidden from view within a home whose exterior may look neat and tidy. You never know what you will encounter when you are called out for a “hoarding” clean up.  As you can see from this picture, at SERVPRO of Mobile Northwest, we follow all OSHA guidelines to ensure the safety of our employees and dispose of all contaminated contents according to set standards.  You never know what may be hiding underneath each pile and it is critical that you leave this type of cleanup to the experts here at SERVPRO.

Fire Damage Fire Heroes SERVPRO Serves in Mobile, AL

When a fire occurs it can be a terrifying experience.  At SERVPRO of Mobile Northwest we come in after the trauma has occurred to begin the cleanup process and help you get your life back on track.  For many of our customers we are small heroes in their eyes as we clean and care for their personal contents and home. We are there to help put back the pieces, but we want to salute the REAL Heroes of Fire...our local Firefighters.  Each day these brave men and women put their lives on the line to save others and help save their homes and businesses. We can only show them a small token of our gratitude but it is our goal to make sure they know how much they are appreciated.  As part of that ideal, we started the SERVPRO Serves: Feeding Firefighters program in 2017. Each month we pick one firehouse in our area to receive lunch on us. We want all of our local fire heroes to know that their service does not go unnoticed!

At SERVPRO of Mobile Northwest we are dedicated to improving our processes and technologies to provide our clients with the most efficient and premier service in the restoration industry.  One way in which we have revolutionized the cleanup process is my implementing the Esporta washing system. This ground-breaking approach to soft contents cleaning means that we can salvage items that would have previously been discarded.  The Esporta uses a patented system of chambers to hold items in place while pushing water and cleaning agents through the contents. This effectively and safely flushes out over 99.999% of contaminants bringing the items to food grade quality.  Using the Esporta washing we can safely clean a variety of soft contents, from textiles to leather goods and many things in between. The Esporta is even capable of cleaning items damaged by sewage and other bio-contamination.

Community We Are Family Coming together for our SERVPRO family!

At SERVPRO of Mobile Northwest we are so lucky to love the community we serve.  We enjoy being able to give back through events such as Crawfish for a Cause and SERVPRO Serves: Feeding Firefighters.  Supporting the greater Mobile area is an awesome honor, but it is even more amazing to be able to support a member of our very own SERVPRO of Mobile Northwest Family! Recently, one of our employees lost everything in a house fire.  We immediately came together to raise funds, collect donations and do everything we could to help this special person get back on their feet. We hosted a BBQ event, selling plates and whole Boston Butts to raise money. It was truly humbling to see the community come together for us and give back to help one of our own.  Thanks to the hard work of our employees and donations from local businesses and individuals, we were able to raise nearly $5,000 and a large assortment of household items and clothes. We are so grateful for your support!

Magic of SERVPRO in Mobile, AL

Water Damage Magic of SERVPRO in Mobile, AL Onsite with a client making it. "Like it never even happened".

Most consumers don’t understand the science of drying that is involved in water restoration.  To many it is simply like magic.  Their home is wet, the SERVPRO calvary comes to the rescue in their green vans and it is dry.  Damage seems to magically disappear, but the truth is much more involved than industry outsiders may realize.  When you experience a water loss and call SERVPRO of Mobile Northwest, the first thing we do upon arriving on the scene is to evaluate the situation.  Utilizing exclusive DryBook Mobile technology, we key a variety of variables in to our tablets and formulate a customized plan of action based upon each customers’ unique situation.  There are a multitude of factors that affect how we formulate our plan of attack.  First, what category of water is involved?  Clean water from a supply line, for example is handled completely differently than a sewage backup.  The location of the affected areas and the materials involved contribute to the level of remediation versus replacement.  The time of year, humidity levels and length of time the water sat also play a role in drying times.  All of our first responders are Certified Water Restoration technicians who have extensive training in evaluating all of these variables to give our clients the best results. It may look like magic but it’s actually the science that makes SERVPRO the leader in the industry.
