home with walls removed When water damages your home, you want the experts at SERVPRO. Call right away after a water incident to avoid additional damages.

Controlled Demolition and Cleanup After Seminole Water Damage

Most of the restoration companies that you can come into contact with after a water damage incident can only help your Seminole property in specific ways. Many get limited to the experience of their technicians, molding their services to a limited window of potential actions to address saturation and dampness throughout your property. Our team, on the other hand, has years of experience in restoring water damage scenarios and can help you to manage many effects after a water damage incident quickly.  

A comprehensive solution for your household is our SERVPRO team, as we can address most restoration needs that you have following water damage in Seminole properties. Choosing experienced technicians and a fast response can ensure that work begins on your home promptly, which can help us save our customers time and money on the restoration project.  

Controlled Demolition  

We provide controlled demolition, which is one of the underappreciated tasks that our full-service team of professionals can accomplish upon arrival to the water damaged residence. Because elements like drywall can absorb substantial volumes of water, oversaturation can lead to bloating and deterioration of this construction material. Flood cuts provide a means of removing the worst of these damaged walls with our intricate demolition techniques. We establish a dryline, ensuring that we only remove the unsalvageable portions of sheetrock.  

Cleaning and Restoration

Cleanup after demolition and new construction is a vital element to getting your property back to pre-damage condition. We have multiple levels of cleaning technicians, each accredited in various areas, prepared to help with mitigation, restoration, and final touches to a completed project whenever necessary. We have technicians endorsed through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in:  

  • CCT – Carpet Cleaning
  • OCT – Odor Control
  • UFT – Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning
  • RCT – Rug Cleaning  

The better prepared our professionals are for every aspect of recovery and restoration after a water damage incident, the sooner that you can get back to life as usual. Let our SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches help you to make any water damage incident “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (727) 391-6212.

Restoring Fire Damaged Contents in Your Seminole Home

Once disaster strikes your Seminole home, you need assurances that you can secure skilled technicians with the appropriate experience to overcome the effects throughout your property. Fires can have devastating effects on the structure of your home, not to mention the lingering and widespread damages that can occur inside of it. However, as a homeowner, often one of the biggest concerns you face is the contents of your home that now sit at risk of soot and smoke damages.

While fire damages can affect your Seminole property in multiple ways, the effects on the contents and your belongings within the house can be the hardest to ignore. Our SERVPRO franchise has a dedicated Contents Department with the specific job of removing damaged and at-risk items from your home to offer detailed and individual restoration efforts to each one.

One of the ways that we can help to assure that the contents of your home receive the best possible care and treatment throughout the restoration process is with our advanced technology and equipment available to our franchise.

Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration and Cleanup

For smoke damaged items, we have cleaning agents and deodorization products designed to control and neutralize the harsh odor smoke can embed into the contents of your residence. For open areas and furniture/materials not removed from the house, we can utilize equipment like our air scrubbers to improve air quality inside and thermal foggers to address the noxious scent.

Mitigation is a critical component to fire restoration work, and our SERVPRO 24-hour response team reflects this understanding. Our highly-trained IICRC certified fire and smoke restoration technicians are available any time that disaster strikes, able to mobilize quickly and arrive shortly after you call to begin efforts to protect and preserve your home.

Our fire recovery team has ongoing training to be among the most educated and experienced professionals in the industry. Our efforts and advanced equipment ensure that fire restoration work happens fast, starting with our initial response to your emergency.

Flooded room After your home suffers flood damage, you need a team of professionals to assist you with cleanup. Call SERVPRO right away! We are always available.

SERVPRO Acts Fast to All Flood Damage Calls, Ensuring Seminole Residents Get Rapid Results!

Many areas may need special attention when you have flood damage in Seminole. Floodwater cleanup must involve more than just water removal services, as there can be a lot of contaminants found throughout your property. Anywhere that the water touched must get carefully cleaned and deodorized. 

SERVPRO addresses specific needs with flood damage in Seminole that may involve areas like:

  • Carpeting/Carpet Padding: If you encountered clean water flooding from a burst pipe or a water spill, traditional drying methods might be enough. However, contaminated stormwater calls for the removal and replacement of all carpet and padding to eliminate harmful bacteria.
  • Structural Damages: Our IICRC-certified crew is well-trained in flood and water damage remediation. We know how to assess your structural elements to ensure your building is safe. If necessary, controlled demolition gets performed to replace questionable areas to leave your home safe and sound. 
  • Biohazards: Microorganisms with flood water or water mixing with chemicals can pose a problem. We use advanced equipment and EPA-registered antimicrobials to boost our cleaning efforts. 
  • Odor Control: The last thing you want is for lingering, foul odors to be a reminder of the flooding that took place. After water clean up and drying, we sanitize all surfaces and implement odor control techniques using cleaning agents, deodorizers, and counteractants.

Why is SERVPRO your best bet to ensure your interior is “Like it never even happened,” after flooding? We have trained water restoration technicians (WRT) on staff with access to the best products, equipment, and proven methods to ensure your project gets done right the first time. 

Call SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches at (727) 391-6212 if you have flooding that must get addressed fast. We are the top team in the area to handle flood damage and detailed restoration.

Country Clubs Face Major Losses when Mold Damage Happens in Seminole

Mold on wall Mold spreads quickly when the conditions are right. Contact SERVPRO to investigate the cause and remediate the damage on your property.

Quick Response to Mold Damage at Your Club is How We Get Your Facility Rapidly Remediated

Having a management role in a country club can be a great position, but it comes with lots of responsibility. Ensuring that the grounds are well-manicured, those indoor recreational areas are kept clean, and everything else is running as it should be can take lots of time and effort. 

Finding that your Seminole facility has mold damage can be a disaster. Not only might guests fear the worst, such as contamination of their belongings and subsequent contamination of their homes, but mold can be downright ugly even to see. We can help alleviate this fiasco in its entirety and do so quickly, easily, and relatively painlessly. 

Mold Damage Inspection

Because mold can travel throughout a building via air filtration systems, locating all areas where mold is more likely to be found is easily done with a hygrometer. This device can identify areas that have higher readings of moisture. Mold needs moisture to grow, so there is no need to look in dry areas. 

Some areas, such as locker rooms and showering facilities, are often much more prone to developing mold damage, while others, such as the pro shop, might be less likely to be stricken with mold growth. However, we always examine anywhere that might be harboring mold. There are many times when we find mold that is hiding in surprising locations! 

Running a large facility for clientele with diverse interests can be challenging, but we at SERVPRO know that the stability of the environment needs to be just that – stable. When a possible health risk is found, remediation is the only answer to continuing to remain operational. 

As we work, we know that it is crucial to your peace of mind that guests and club members are not disturbed. We have experience in remediation in large facilities, including hospitals, where it was necessary to work alongside patients and hospital staff while remaining out of the way. 

For any problems your facility has with mold damage, call us. We are SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches, and we can make it “Like it never even happened.” Just call us 24/7 at (727) 391-6212.

Flood Damage in Seminole Can Take the Fun Out of Florida Living

water in home Storms can bring flooding and water damage. The professionals at SERVPRO are always on call to handle your water damage restoration needs.

SERVPRO Provides Solutions to Flooding in Seminole

Living near the beaches is considered a beautiful location, but it also comes with many surprises. Flooding is one of these surprises, but we can help your family regain your home. SERVPRO only uses the most recent industry developments and scientific discoveries in performing restorative work.

Seminole is divided by water, which provides revenue through tourism, fun, and beauty, but this water can also cause flood damage to affect Seminole homes adversely. There are other ways that water can flood, such as seasonal storms, hurricanes, and indoor plumbing accidents. Outside sources often bring debris and other contaminants with them, which significantly increases the problem's severity.

When flooding happens, the materials in your home react to the water. Some, such as wallpaper, carpeting, and furniture, are immediately affected. Other materials take longer to show signs of their contact with the water. Because flooding continues to create more and more damage the longer it remains in a home, we are always available regardless of the hour.

Items that Need Water Clean Up

Carpeting can become stained almost immediately by any furniture legs that rest directly on the carpet's surface. Wallpaper and linoleum can both lose their adhesive qualities and can eventually separate from glued surfaces. Drywall can deteriorate over time, slowly becoming worse and worse.

Water from any source can seep into areas that never came into contact with the initial intrusion. Flooded homes always have higher humidity levels than the air outside. Higher humidity in a home can create problems with deterioration and corrosion in a multitude of locations.

These situations stemming from flood damage mean it is imperative to begin cleaning up flood damage immediately. Every minute that goes by with water standing in your home creates additional problematic situations. SERVPRO has the pump trucks needed for any size flooding incident.

Water Removal Equipment

After we have reduced the amount of water to the degree suitable for handheld equipment, we can continually, step-by-step, work toward bringing the moisture levels in your home back within normal ranges. This includes the humidity levels in the air. We do not stop with just drying your home's walls and floors and the furnishings inside, but we also reduce the moisture in the air.

Flood Damage Restoration

After the moisture levels are under control, we then move onto other stages of restoration. Flood damage can include the smell of floodwaters, as well as sewage or other debris. We can restore a fresh and clean scent to your home, so it does not only look restored, but it smells restored, also. 

SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches, at (727) 391-6212, can be reached anytime, for any emergency. We can help restore your flood damaged home so that you and your family can get back to your everyday routines quickly.

Is Odor Removal Part of Fire Damage Services in Seminole?

SERVPRO in Seminole Incorporates Odor Control into our Fire Damage Restoration Service

Every year there are over 358,000 fires in homes across the US. One of the toughest parts of following a fire is ridding your home of the unpleasant odors caused by soot, combustion, and smoke. The microscopic size of smoke particles allows them to permeate most parts of a home, including untreated or exposed woods, drywall, fabrics, and furniture. Generally, porous items of furniture suffer worse from smoke infiltration. Professional services can help with:

  • Smoke remediation
  • Smoke damage
  • Fire damaged homes

There are ways to tackle fire damage in your Seminole home using household appliances. Carpets can often absorb odor particles and be treated by placing baking soda directly onto the carpet surface then vacuuming the area. Using a steam cleaner can also help to dislodge smoke residues that bond to carpet fibers; however, managing the drying process can be complex; a wet carpet is at risk of attracting mold or other microorganisms. Professional services can:

  • Vacuum surfaces using high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) fittings filter out the odor or soot particles from a carpet. 
  • SERVPRO technicians can apply an emulsifying agent onto the carpet to absorb soot or odors if baking soda fails. 
  • Refitting ducts and shafts of a heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) unit can often tackle unwanted fire odors. 

To get rid of fire odors, contact SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches for fire damage restoration at (727) 391-6212.
