We Can Prevent Long Term Issues After A Flood In Your Cutler Bay Home

4/17/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage We Can Prevent Long Term Issues After A Flood In Your Cutler Bay Home After flooding affects your home, you can call SERVPRO to help with restoration and identification of issues likely to cause problems in the future.

Preventing Long Term Problems After Flood Damage In Cutler Bay

When a flooding incident affects your home in Cutler Bay, it can leave other problems that continue affecting you long after you finish cleaning. Taking proper actions during the restoration process can help protect you from long-term issues. We offer professional restoration of flood damage that can help you overcome the challenges.

Cleaning up soiling and debris is essential when dealing with flood damage in Cutler Bay. Floods mostly involve black water loss because the water flows over large swathes of land collecting different contaminants. It is, therefore, a useful idea to remove any porous materials affected by the incident because of the risk of long-term contamination. Our SERVPRO technicians remove carpet and pad for disposal. We also treat non-porous materials on the floor and walls with EPA-registered disinfectants neutralize contaminants.

The wetness from the floodwaters can easily spark mold infestation in your property. Removing the water from affected rooms is easy. However, some of the moisture can remain trapped in concealed areas such as wall cavities, subfloors, and crawl spaces. Eliminating such moisture protects you from the tough and at times expensive undertaking of removing mold later. Our SERVPRO technicians use various moisture detection tools to check for moisture in materials and concealed spaces. We use FLIR thermal cameras to check for wet areas behind walls or other concealed areas. We also use moisture meters to check moisture levels in materials. We then use various drying equipment including LGR dehumidifiers, which allow us to reduce humidity to lower levels compared to using conventional refrigerant dehumidifiers.

Flooding can interfere with the energy efficiency of your home by affecting the R-value of the insulation. Wetness also causes some types of insulation such as Rockwool to matt thus rendering them useless. Our SERVPRO technicians open up walls to replace the wet insulation thus keeping your home energy efficient.

After flooding affects your home in Cutler Ridge, Franjo, and Three Lakes, you can call SERVPRO of Cutler Bay to help with restoration and identification of issues likely to cause problems in the future. You can reach us at (305) 278-8484 any time.

Avoiding Secondary Issues From Flood Damage In Cutler Bay

Flood damage in a home is one of the most stressful situations a homeowner can face. When we get the call to remediate water loss in a home, it is crucial to act quickly to dry the house and contents to prevent secondary damages.

When handling flood damage in Cutler Bay homes, SERVPRO technicians know that this situation needs to be handled quickly but also with compassion. Saturated items are moved out of the house with the homeowner's approval, and any remaining standing water is extracted using portable pumps for smaller jobs and truck mounted pumps for large-scale water removal when needed.

The process of drying a home is more than setting up fans and hoping for the best. Our technicians set up air movers at specific angles unique to the property to move moist air up and out in the most efficient manner. If drywall has become saturated, SERVPRO uses moisture probes to determine how far into the drywall moisture has penetrated. Weep holes or sections are cut away as needed to allow for the air to reach behind the drywall.

Dehumidifiers lower moisture in the air and in some cases our technicians use heaters to get rid of excess moisture in building materials and restorable home contents during the drying phase of restoration. This is a critical step in ensuring there are no damp areas that harbor mold.

Mold spores can set up home in damp conditions as quickly as 24-48 hours after a water loss incident in a home. SERVPRO technicians use proprietary formulated cleaners that eradicate both mold and bacteria to wipe down non-porous surfaces affected by water. Technicians know porous items that have been saturated need to be handled on a case by case basis, and we do not remove any unrestorable items without homeowner approval.

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay is staffed by certified remediation specialists who have the experience and tools to handle flood damage to your home. SERVPRO's emergency services are available 24/7 by calling (305) 278-8484.

As simple as this may seem, your better option is reaching out to our professional team at SERVPRO.

Sometimes humidity is hiding behind your walls or under your carpet, and it is invisible to the naked eye. Our use of drying mats, air movers and dehumidifiers help us return your home environment to its natural balance.

Why Fire Damage Incidents in Cutler Ridge Need Professional Attention

3/11/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Why Fire Damage Incidents in Cutler Ridge Need Professional Attention Fire restoration is not only removing smoke and soot damage but also cleaning water damage left behind by the efforts to put the fire out.

SERVPRO’s Fire Damage Restoration Proccess

The occurrence of fire damage incidents causes a lot of disruption and losses. There is also the emotional toll that any property owner in Cutler Ridge is likely to experience when the unfortunate incident occurs. Fire restoration is not all about removing the smoke and soot particles that settle on items after the fire. There are certain steps to follow when dealing with such issues for a successful restoration.

Fire damage events in Cutler Ridge require you to remain calm as you work with restoration service providers like SERVPRO. When our technicians are working for you, they first determine the degree of the damage before they can start to clean the soot and smoke particles on the walls. It is a detailed inspection that uses specialized tools together with IICRC recommended procedures.

When putting off the fire, water and fire suppressants are normally used. Our technicians understand that the stagnant water may create conducive conditions for mold growth and as a result drain it immediately. After draining the water, we perform deodorization that neutralizes any existent odors. Where necessary, our SERVPRO team ventilates the area to address the odor situation.

Sometimes when our SERVPRO technicians are performing restoration procedures, they come across preloss conditions that were existing before the fire. For instance, the areas that might be having pre-existing soiling will need cleaning. We readily clean such areas and remove any visible mold growth during the restoration. We only require you to remove your jewelry, ammunition, guns and any other personal items before we can start our work. Where necessary, we perform move-outs in an attempt to prevent your contents from further damage.

Our technicians always observe safety measures when working for you. For instance, when performing thermal fogging, we ensure that pets and everyone leave the site. We also put on protective gear to prevent any possible irritation when spraying some of the deodorants.

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay works around the clock to control any mold, fire, water and storm disasters. Call us at (305) 278-8484 when you need to work with a trusted leader to restore your property.

Protect Against Winter Mold Damage in Cutler Bay

3/11/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Protect Against Winter Mold Damage in Cutler Bay Once mold starts growing, it is hard to get it under control without professional help. Keep your moisture levels in check and contact SERVPRO.

Prevention is Key When Mold Damage is the Issue

People do not associate Florida with cold winters or deep snow drifts, so it is easy to assume that Cutler Bay residents need not concern themselves with winter preparation. However, it is still essential to protect against fungal growth in winter as that is a problem that might arise at any time of year. The winter months in Florida still have high humidity compared to other places in the United States, and humid conditions are unfortunately the perfect breeding ground for mold spores. SERVPRO recommends homeowners take steps to protect against winter mold damage.
 
The fungus has the potential to cause mold damage in Cutler Bay homes. The microscopic spores spread through the air and can even enter the home through HVAC units, on clothes or shoes, or on the fur of household pets. Spores can grow wherever they find a source of moisture, and organic material to use as food, such as paper or drywall. Humidity is a problem in our state all year round, which is why we recommend precautionary measures.
 
It is a good idea to invest in one or more dehumidifiers for the home. A dehumidifier draws extra moisture from the air and condenses it so you can empty the water down the drain.
 
Always make sure your HVAC system is working efficiently, as HVAC systems provide a prime breeding ground for mold to grow. Do not allow water to pool within the system; remove it immediately and carry out any necessary repairs.
 
It is also a good idea to keep your home well ventilated. Open doors and windows from time to time to let air circulate.
 
Always be mindful of places in your home where water pools or where you notice condensation dripping on walls or other surfaces. Bathrooms and kitchens both tend to be damp, and basements and laundry rooms are often damp, too. Take steps to wipe away excess water, and deal with any faults such as broken pipes, dripping taps, or leaking windows immediately.
 
Call SERVPRO at the first sign of mold. Our IICRC-certified technicians are on hand to wipe, scrub, and HEPA vacuum spores away, and we equip our staff with dehumidifiers to dry affected areas.
 
For help with mold remediation in Franjo, Palmetto Bay, Perrine, Goulds and surrounding areas, call SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484 today.
