Recently a Bradenton homeowner answered a frantic call from a neighbor. The neighbor said that water was coming out of the home. The homeowner called the experts at SERVPRO and started to make his way home. A hot water heater had leaked causing damage to most of the home. Luckily, it was caught in time, because this all happened in a condo and it could have been much worse.


The actions of the neighbor were very helpful. The decision of the homeowner to call the IICRC trained technicians from SERVPRO of West Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch was crucial in preventing additional damage. The team responded quickly, because they are set up for 24/7 emergency service.


SERVPRO of West Bradenton / Anna Maria technicians are highly trained to properly clean and restore your house so that it feels like home again.


When the leak was stopped, and the inspection completed, it was time to really get to work. First is the water removal and extraction. Depending on the amount of water, we may use powerful submersible pumps in addition to industrial strength, wet/dry vacuums. Removing most of the water helps reduce drying time and helps prevent secondary water damage and mold and bacterial growth. After the damage assessment it was time for drying and dehumidification.


Our team is trained to identify and eliminate offensive odors. Our technical expertise and industrial grade air scrubbers and fogging equipment go well beyond simply masking odors and other shortcuts that don’t work when your odor problem is persistent.


We can work with your insurance. So for an easy claims process, SERVPRO can help manage the insurance paperwork and process. Call for details. (941) 792-7715
