Mold Remediation Former Water Damage Could Cause Mold Growth In Your Redington Shores Residence Redington Beach Condo Dwellers Rely on SERVPRO for Mold Cleanup and Remediation

Mold Removal and Successful Remediation Often Requires Professional Assistance--Rely on SERVPRO

Water damages are nothing that is all that surprising to see in Redington Shores homes, both from natural occurrences and those of homeowner error. Regardless of the reason, most homeowners often believe that water can easily get cleaned up without the hiring of professional restoration services, and set out to complete the task on their own. The trouble with this approach is, you might not always be seeing the entire issue that your home is facing, which could result in more significant damages in the long run.
 
Failure to remove all of the dampness and moisture from areas in your Redington Shores home could result in instances like mold damages and fungal growth. Considering the commonly warm temperatures already present for the better part of the year, mold spores in the air only require organic material (like the construction materials of your home) and moisture to grow and thrive.
 
This alarming reality can be a little challenging even to be aware of until the problem has become a widespread issue. Most homeowners get drawn to the problem from the musty scent coming from the affected area where water damage had once occurred. After the mold growth is discovered in your home, it is time to bring in the IICRC certified mold remediation specialists of our SERVPRO team.
 
When our team arrives at your home, we work to assess where these colonies are growing and section off this area from the people in your home while the remediation process is ongoing. This process also requires your air circulation appliances, like an air conditioner or heater to be shut off to prevent active or dormant spores from finding a home elsewhere in your house through the ductwork.
 
Sectioning off the area is a critical step in the remediation process and one that can showcase our determination to provide every customer with a thorough restoration. Our SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches mold remediation specialists are available 24/7 whenever you discover the presence of fungus in your home. Give us a call when you need us at (727) 391-6212.

What to Expect During Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Your Redington Shores Store

4/3/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial What to Expect During Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Your Redington Shores Store If your business experiences water damage, you can trust on SERVPRO to thoroughly extract the water, dry out your space, and eliminate any odors.

Trust SERVPRO for Expert Commercial Water Damage Restoration

Water damage to your store can be disastrous. Not only does the restoration process cost you money, but you lose business during the restoration process itself. That said, the restoration process is not easy after a water damage incident. The time required for the restoration can depend on the extent and severity of the damage. It is of great value for a store owner to understand the process itself to better prepare for the things to come in such a scenario.

The first and perhaps the most important thing to do after water damage to your Redington Shores store is to call in the professionals. The earlier they can come to your establishment, the quicker they can get their job done. Here is a broad overview of events that you can expect to unfold during the restoration process.

Extraction of Water

The first thing to do is to extract any liquid water from the premises. SERVPRO professionals can use equipment called extractors to get this job done. The professionals can use different capacity extractors based on the volume of water to be extracted. For smaller volumes, a hand-held extractor might work, while for larger volumes, truck-mounted extractors may be needed.

Eliminating the Residual Moisture

Once the water has been removed from your establishment, the technicians start eliminating the remaining moisture left behind. It is crucial to eliminate this moisture as soon as possible as it can cause many secondary problems including mold, if not addressed.

Our IICRC certified technicians use several types of equipment to eliminate the remaining moisture from the premises. Some of the equipment includes dehumidifiers and air movers. While dehumidifiers eliminate the moisture by trapping it from the air and converting it into liquid water, the air movers improve the speed of drying.

A strategic combination of both these equipment speeds up the drying process and reduces the time for the restoration.

Eliminating Odor

Odor can be a massive problem for many businesses. Customers do not want to shop in a place that smells weird. As a result, the third and final step in the restoration process is odor elimination. Technicians use multiple methods and equipment to eliminate the odor left behind by the water damage.

The time required to complete all these steps depend on the extent and nature of the damage.

Don't Let Off-Season Flood Damage in Redington Beach Catch You Off Guard

3/30/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Don't Let Off-Season Flood Damage in Redington Beach Catch You Off Guard If heavy rains enter your home, call on our SERVPRO team to remediate the damage "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO is Here to Help Anytime Your Home Experiences Flood Damage

While hurricane season may be over and long to come, homes in Florida communities like Redington Beach may still get flood damage from passing storms. Hurricanes can cause billions of dollars in damage to a wide area, creating massive economic and humanitarian disasters as thousands lose their homes, but many smaller storms in the offseason claim unlucky residents, too. Stay prepared for hurricane-like conditions even in the offseason, have a plan in case of disaster, and keep SERVPRO in your contacts to make sure unexpected floods have as little effect as possible on your family.

Maintaining an adequate insurance policy is arguably the most important consideration to avoid hardship from flood damage in Redington Beach in the hurricane offseason. Many homeowner's insurance policies lack flood insurance, even in a state like Florida, so you should make sure that your current policy covers this type of disaster in full. Furthermore, make sure the coverage is as extensive as possible: some floods can claim your entire home in one event, and you want to be able to get every cent it is worth when you call up the insurer.

Beyond financial matters, you should also prepare to protect your family's physical safety in the event of a major storm. Hurricane season evacuation routes remain open should you need them, but a more practical solution may be to find safe places in your home to escape floodwaters. A second story is ideal, but elevated positions on the first floor such as countertops also usually provide enough protection for floods not resulting from hurricanes. Make sure that whatever area you use as a refuge is bolted down, as a table or piece of furniture may be picked up and tossed about by incoming floodwaters.

Finally, if something does happen, be sure to contact SERVPRO as soon as possible so that we can get to the scene with minimal delay. Our efficacy in the field depends on the speed of our responses. For the best treatment possible, it is imperative for you to call us before the water has a chance to set in and cause further damage.

SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches is ready year-round to respond to flood damage calls in the local area. If disaster strikes your home, call us right away at (727) 391-6212.

Flood Damage In North Redington Beach

1/17/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Flood Damage In North Redington Beach Storms and Flooding in Your Redington Beach Home or Condo? Simple, Just Call SERVPRO for Water Removal

SERVPRO Provides Water Extraction and Drying Post Storm-Related Events

When a storm hits an area, flooding may occur. Some properties in North Redington Beach are more susceptible to suffering flood damage than others from tidal surges during tropical storms.

It is possible that one house suffers water damage in a storm and another is not affected. If your house is one of the damaged properties in North Redington Beach to suffer flood damage, SERVPRO can help. There are some ways a storm can damage your property, and we can mitigate most of the possible problem.
 
For example, say you live at the bottom of a small hill, and a rainstorm comes in dumping a significant amount of rain into your neighborhood. The only house that may have flooding issues on your block is yours that sits at the bottom of the hill. When driveways are flat, or slope downhill water can flow from the streets to the driveway and into your garage. Of course, when your property abuts the Gulf of Mexico there are other potential sources of flooding.
 
If you ever happen to go into your garage and see an inch or two of standing water, the experts at SERVPRO can help. When our water removal team arrives at your home or condo, we can start by removing all of the contents that are sitting in the water. Our team can assess the contents and see if anything is damaged or if drying all of the items is all that is needed. Next, our team uses their extraction equipment to vacuum up all of the standing water.
 
Our team then checks the moisture levels in the drywall inside the garage and the air. If there is a high level of moisture present in the drywall, then our team sets up dehumidifiers and air movers to quickly dry out the garage's structure. Our team then comes back and check the levels until they are back to normal levels. After moisture levels are low enough, we remove all of our drying equipment. We also offer documentation of the moisture content and humidity levels that you can provide to your insurance carrier.
 
Calling in the experts to solve a water damage problem can save you thousands in the long run. If water enters your home after a storm, call SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches at (727) 391-6212 for help 24/7.
