Among the most affected areas was Lakes by the Bay, destroying most homes and businesses. The site has been rebuilt, but flooding may still occur.

Water Mitigation in Humid Conditions in Cutler Bay

4/1/2021 (Permalink)

leaky ceiling, broke ceiling tiles Sitting water in your property is no joke. SERVPRO has the manpower and equipment for any size water restoration service needed.

Does condensation on surfaces hinder water mitigation in cutler Bay homes?

Water leaks introduce water and moisture into structures causing humidity levels to increase inside structures significantly. While the air is warm, it can hold all of this moisture; however, humidity is released as condensation on cool surfaces as the air cools.

SERVPRO monitors humidity and temperature levels during water mitigation activities in Cutler Bay structures. High humidity levels cause condensation on cooler surfaces introducing additional liquid to surfaces.

We introduce air movers to push dry air into high humidity areas and dehumidifiers to remove the moisture to avoid condensation. Dry air also absorbs moisture from materials as the air sweeps past these surfaces.

Our water mitigation professionals balance these factors:

  • Humidity levels - relative to the air temperature
  • Dew Point - is the temperature when water vapor begins to condense
  • Ambient temperature - of the interior of the structure
  • Evaporation and dehumidification - of water vapor to dry the air

To maximize drying efficiency and avoid adding liquid water condensing from the air onto surfaces we are drying.

Contact SERVPRO of Cutler Bay for water mitigation services in Cutler Ridge and surrounding areas. We can help 24/7. Call (305) 278-8484.

storm damaged home Flood remediation is not for the faint of heart. SERVPRO has trained professionals you need for the service of your home.

What hazardous materials should homeowners be aware of after a flood in Cutler Bay?

The town of Cutler Bay was named after Dr. William Cutler, who visited the area in 1880. He encouraged settlement of the site, and the small village became known as Cutler. It wasn't until 1905 that the town was incorporated, taking Cutler Bay's name over several other popular titles such as Pine Ridge, Cutler Ridge, and Old Cutler Bay. As of 2010, about 40,000 people were living in the area.

There are several interesting venues to visit in Cutler and the nearby towns. These include:

  • Charles Deering Estate
  • Cutler Fossil Site
  • Whispering Pines Park
  • Lakes by the Bay Park
  • Zoo Miami
  • Burr's Berry Farm
  • Larry and Penny Thompson Park
  • Southland Mall

Charles Deering Estate

The estate preserves the 1920's era home and property of Charles Deering, an industrialist interested in protecting the environment. The estate is considered a cultural asset and is listed on the national register of historic places. It is a popular destination for residents and tourists visiting the area. There are programs, classes, and tours offered during the year.

Cutler Fossil Site

Located on the Charles Deering Estate, the fossil site is located at a sinkhole in Palmetto Bay. The bones of Pleistocene animals and artifacts of Paleo-Indians have been excavated at the site. The site was not discovered until 1979, and excavation began in 1985. At the time, the sinkhole was 16 feet above sea level. However, in the Pleistocene era, it was over 330 feet above sea level and many miles from the sea.

Lakes by the Bay Park

This 45-acre multi-use park offers three baseball fields, four batting cages, two soccer fields used for football and lacrosse, a .6 mile exercise path, a playground, and a concession building. There is a canoe/kayak launch site where you can also join monthly kayak tours. Adjacent to the Lakes by the Bay Park is the 47 acre Miami-Dade County Park.

Burr's Berry Farm

Burr's Berry Farm has been in operation for over 60 years offering seasonally grown tomatoes, strawberries, sunflowers, bell-peppers, snapdragons, herbs, and lettuce. There are field trips, hay wagon rides, corn mazes, and pumpkin patches to explore. The farm stand sells hot dogs, milkshakes, baked goods, juices, and fresh vegetables. Burr's Berry Farm is a great place to spend quality time with the family.
