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.

Rid Your Home Of Mold In Your North Redington Beach Home With SERVPRO

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

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. Upon arriving, SERVPRO can immediately begin to focus on removing the flood waters from inside, knowing that floods can carry contaminants in their waters that are dangerous to your health.
Our SERVPRO technicians can use an antimicrobial agent to help limit contaminants from spreading and to create a safe work environment. 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.
Never wait to get help when your business experiences flood damage. Use the number (727) 391-6212 to reach out and contact SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches. Day or night, our technicians are available to assist your business so you may reopen your doors swiftly.

Your Best Guide to Pinellas County Water Damage Remediation

11/29/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Your Best Guide to Pinellas County Water Damage Remediation Water removal needs to be timely in order to prevent lingering odors. Call SERVPRO right away should you experience a water damage event.

How Water Damage can Leave Your Pinellas County Home with Unwanted Odors

Water reacts with different chemicals in diverse ways, and if your Pinellas County residence has problematic plumbing, these chemical changes can become highly noticeable. Water can cause problems in several different ways, and unpleasant odors can affect the entire house.
Homeowners can see many ways water damage in Pinellas County appears in their home's structure, but odors spread out all through the house, seemingly stronger in some areas than in other locations. SERVPRO can get control of these olfactory nuisances and make your home smell normal again.
Mitigating water damage easily reduces the unpleasant odors often associated with the presence of water, but odor control can significantly help the situation. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) holds certification from the IICRC and comes prepared to provide you with effective odor control measures.
Placing odor-controlling liquids directly into your carpet's pad with an injection system provides evenly dispersed and long-lasting fragrance for low-level odors. This method poses no risk of discoloring your carpet with stains, and we can reapply it as often as needed. It is also highly safe for children and pets.
Gel packs placed in inaccessible locations within areas of your home that seem to experience the worst or most concentrated odors typically provide substantial relief. These last an extremely long time as they slowly give off their scents.
To neutralize the odors that water damage creates, we can also perform thermal fogging. This method binds odor-causing substances in your home with the chemical agents in the fogging machine. Once bonded to the particles creating the odors, no more particles can find their way back into your home's air.
Another method we often rely on is the production of either ozone or hydroxyl gas. Ozone is well-known, but in damper situations, we prefer to use the hydroxyl gas, instead of the ozone. Ozone production should not take place in occupied homes, where plants must remain, or where damp carpets or furniture exist. Hydroxyl gas production does not have any of these restrictions, making it safer to use. Hydroxyl gas is just as effective as ozone gas but without the risks.
SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches can freshen up your home just as professionally as we mitigate those with water damage. Contact us at (727) 391-6212, so we can make your Indian Shores, Madeira Beach, or Redington Beach property smell just like you want.
