Water Damage Has a Plumbing Leak Caused Water Damage to Your Redington Shores Home? Breaks in plumbing lines can cause significant water damage throughout your home.

Most Redington Shores homeowners do not know the condition of their plumbing system, primarily because almost all of it is hidden neatly in the wall cavities throughout the house. While this is a design that can be aesthetically pleasing, it also prevents you from seeing potential problems with the plumbing before it becomes a widespread disaster. Broken pipes can occur from scaling and erosion, common symptoms for older ductile iron, galvanized steel, and copper service lines throughout your home.

Once a pipe breaks in your home, before you can make the appropriate phone call for water removal services in Redington Shores, the supply continues to feed this opening until you can reach the shutoff valve for your service line. Once the flow of water has gotten stopped, it is vital to reach out to our rapid response team as quickly as possible. Our SERVPRO professionals have the equipment and expertise to preserve much of the affected materials in an incident like this, but only if we get notified of the situation quickly.

Often the effect of a water loss incident like this is widespread, affecting multiple floors of your home and adjacent areas to the incident when it occurs in specific locations. The professionals that arrive at your home shortly after you call can identify the full scale of this water damage and the best approaches to eliminate the moisture and dampness.

With uncontaminated water damage such as this, many of the affected materials such as flooring, structural elements like studs and beams, and ceiling materials can get preserved with the right immediate drying actions through our air movers and dehumidifiers. Saturated materials like drywall often have to get replaced, at least in part, as the sheetrock can quickly erode and degrade when exposed to high volumes of water.

Flood Damage Restoration in North Reddington Beach Done Right

Why SERVPRO Uses Air Movers and Desiccant Machines in Flood Damaged Homes in North Redington Beach

Flooding events, mudslides, hurricanes, and other terrible weather events can strike in North Redington Beach at any time. There are many things you can do to prepare and minimize the impact, but once the weather clears, residents still have to face the destruction and begin to clean up and rebuild.
 
When we perform flood damage mitigation in North Redington Beach, many customers ask why we SERVPRO specialists use both air movers and desiccant machines. Some people wonder if these two machines might work against each other instead of increasing the other's productivity.
 
We can assure you that these two machines, as well as all of our other devices and tools, work together in a way that makes the entire mitigation process faster, more efficient, and also increasingly thorough. Other pieces of equipment guard our technicians from injuries, and others protect your home from cross-contamination.
 
With flood damage, more than your home's structure and the contents inside get soaked. The air also ends up saturated with water vapor. Our air movers and desiccant machines both work to get your home dried out entirely. We place our air movers facing the direction that gives us the most efficient 'push' to get air either to pass through a desiccant machine, air scrubber, or to the outdoors.
 
Our desiccant machines need to continually pull water vapor from the air, strip it dry, and send dry air out. This can continue for a while because saturated materials slowly give off only the moisture that the exterior of the material contains. Water held in the deeper portions slowly moves toward drier areas, which are the ones most recently dried by the whisking away of moisture on the surface. Desiccant machines remain running until no remaining humidity exists.
 
We test the amount of moisture in your walls, floors, and the air. We also examine different items in your furnishings. We can show you the progress made, as we keep records of each tested item's moisture content, from start to finish. SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches is always ready with our equipment and skilled IICRC-certified technicians when your home sustains flood damage. Call us at (727) 391-6212.

We Are The Team To Call To Eliminate Mold From Your Redington Beach Condo

Mold Remediation We Are The Team To Call To Eliminate Mold From Your Redington Beach Condo If you can see, or only suspect there is active mold in your residence, call us today at (727) 391-6212 to schedule a visit.

Eliminating Mold Damage In Redington Beach Condos

Every residence in Redington Beach has mold spores. In the majority of them, the spores are inert, posing no threat to the structures or the health of anyone inside them. When mold comes into contact with enough moisture, the spores can expand and begin growing into an extensive colony.

Mold damage in Redington Beach condos can cost an owner thousands of dollars replacement and rebuilding unless she can quickly bring in a professional cleaning service. SERVPRO restoration specialists know that stopping a mold threat includes removing the source of moisture, removing active mold growth, and lowering the humidity level in the home to reduce the risk of future growth.

One of our inspectors examines the growth and follows it throughout the home. He also uses a moisture meter to trace the air content back to its strongest point. In most cases, the actual source of moisture is a small pool or plumbing leak. Our specialists can dry or repair most of these themselves, but for major issues, the inspector recommends bringing in a licensed plumber or general contractor.

Next, SERVPRO team members clean and remove the mold spores. Unless the mold grew undetected for a long time, they could wipe clean most surfaces with a mild, anti-fungal agent and sponges or cleaning cloths. For thick layers, specialists use a stronger cleaner to break them up and a vacuum with a HEPA filter to capture every spore off the affected surfaces.

Since cleaning actions disturb spores on surfaces and in the air, our teams allow time for spores to settle and then repeat the process. They continue with this method until the team leader tests the mold content level in the air at normal, safe levels.

Since even a minute amount of moisture can cause mold to grow again, our specialists use dehumidifiers to draw it out of the air and property inside the home. For damp surfaces, they use air movers to force warm, dry air across them and exhaust fans to pull the cooler, damp air outside.

At SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches, we take every action possible to return every condo to its pre-mold condition. If you can see, or only suspect there is active mold in your residence, call us today at (727) 391-6212 to schedule a visit.

What Makes Mold Hazardous in Your North Redington Beach Home?

When you think about the disasters that can impact your North Redington Beach property, many homeowners might not instantly bring fungal growth to mind. With high humidity levels throughout the better part of the year, many homeowners have likely already encountered mold growth at times throughout the life of their property. Overcoming these situations quickly can benefit both the home and those living inside of it, but this begins with an understanding of the potential risks associated with allowing mold to grow unabated. 

Many North Redington Beach homeowners might consider potential mold damage as a direct effect of living in a region with higher humidity levels, and as such, no great cause for concern. However, mold growth in your home could cause direct problems to both the integrity of your home’s construction and those exposed to an active colony throughout the property. Our SERVPRO rapid response team can work quickly to isolate these affected areas to limit exposure to the occupants of your home, but that begins with notification that mold growth exists. 

What makes mold growth dangerous to living things in your home is the potential mycotoxins the organism can release as it feeds on organic materials it uses to spread. These can adversely affect humans and pets, especially those more susceptible to respiratory infections or already combatting a chronic respiratory condition. 

Additionally, spreading colonies feed on organic material that they can find in the framework of your property and materials like drywall. As the organism spreads, it continues to feed on these materials and weakens its composition to the point of becoming irreparably damaged and unsalvageable.  Our SERVPRO professionals can work to remove colonies in these critical structural elements to preserve them instead of removing and replacing them unnecessarily. 

Do not be the homeowner that underestimates the potential effect of mold growth on their property. Let our SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches remediation technicians help you remove the organism and restore the damage that it has caused to your property in the process. Give our experienced professionals a call whenever you discover mold growth in your home at (727) 391-6212.

Let Our Experts Help Return Your Water Damaged Indian Shores Home To Pre-Damage Condition

12/11/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Let Our Experts Help Return Your Water Damaged Indian Shores Home To Pre-Damage Condition The water released by a broken dishwasher or a water heater with a faulty cut-off switch can flood an entire home overnight.

Restoring Water Damaged Homes In Indian Shores

Even with their location on the Florida west coast, Indian Shores homeowners deal more with the effects of failed appliances. The water released by a broken dishwasher or a water heater with a faulty cut-off switch can flood an entire home overnight.

This type of water damage to Indian Shores homes can include personal and structural property loss. SERVPRO restoration teams use specialized equipment and training in every home to prevent that and restore everything possible.

Since every minute underwater can cause the property to split and crumble, technicians bring in commercial pumps for ankle deep and higher standing water, then switch to extraction wands for lower levels. The wands are also excellent for drawing water out of carpets, and wood flooring and our personnel can adjust both the speed and heat used to begin the drying process as well carefully.

At the same time, other SERVPRO team members remove furniture to a dry part of the house or outside and place it on pallets or blocks to help water drain and avoid wood cracking or splitting. If needed, technicians set up fans to carefully force air across surfaces, reducing the time needed for drying. For cushions and pillows that absorbed a large amount of water, they stack them like a tent, keeping the zippers on top, so water drains away from them, avoiding rust.

After removing the water, specialists examine the drywall panels and floor trim for damage. Drywall quickly absorbs moisture, even through latex paint. Floor trim is more resistant than drywall, but if either absorbs enough water, they are cheaper to replace than restore.

If they are restorable, our technicians remove the floor trim and stand the pieces upright in a corner or outside. As long as the drywall has not started crumbling, technicians drill small holes into each panel behind where the floor trim was attached and use air movers to force warm air across the exposed surfaces and into the wall spaces behind the panels to dry them.

These are the first steps that SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches takes to dry and restore water damaged homes to their original condition. If you need us, call (727) 391-6212 today to get started. We are here for you.

Severe Seasonal Storms Can Cause Flood Damage to Your North Redington Beach Laundromat  

Hurricanes are no stranger to Florida but, unfortunately, they are known to cause extensive flood damage. What is fortunate is that not all storms cause catastrophic damage and tear buildings down completely. Sometimes a change in winds can slow them dramatically and turn them into a much lesser threat. However, even when classified as a less severe storm, they can still cause significant enough damage to warrant calling for professional help.

When the storm hit during the night, the rushing waters and debris broke the glass doors of your North Redington Beach laundromat and caused flood damage. By the end of the night, the rains subsided, but your business had gained six inches of water inside of it that didn't use to be there. It is essential for you to get help as soon as you possibly can, as leaving the water for an extended period can cause further complications to your property. It only takes seventy-two hours for microbial growth to begin once the structure of your property has been exposed to an excess of moisture.
 
At SERVPRO, we understand how essential it is for you to get the doors open of your laundromat once more. When you call us, we can immediately send a team out to your establishment with advanced trade technology, which can let them combat the flood damage inside.

From there, we can use trunk-mounted wet/dry vacuums and extractors to remove the significant volume of water from your business rapidly. Once it is gone, we can clean the inside of your laundromat, and remove any debris from inside, and make flood cuts to the walls, removing any areas that have been damaged and contaminated.
 
As a business owner, we understand that you may be worried about your industrial grade washers and dryers.  We can help you create an insurance claim to secure the coverage you deserve.
