Removing Fire Damage from Hardwood in Cutler Bay Businesses

4/24/2022 (Permalink)

a fire damaged house with soot and debris everywhere Regardless of the extent of the fire damage to your business, team SERVPRO can help. Call our certified technicians for effective debris removal.

Hardwood Can Suffer Significant Fire Damage in Cutler Bay Shops

Hardwood flooring is a standard installation for many modern businesses and shops, and this type of material is susceptible to fire damage when these disasters occur. We have effective mitigation and cleaning strategies beginning as soon as we arrive to prevent tear-out.

Clearing Debris

Debris removal is one of the foundational elements of fire restoration in Cutler Bay businesses. So many effects are worsened by heaps of charred remnants and debris in the structure. We can shovel and vacuum out the bulk of this to begin mitigative efforts.

Assessing Present Soot and Smoke Damage

With debris cleared from the floors, restorers get their first look at soot and smoke damage. We rapidly assess needed actions to begin soot removal as soon as possible.

Clearing Surface Residues

Before direct cleaning of the surface elements can begin after soot damage, our SERVPRO team works to remove the bulk of the soil deposits on the flooring. Mechanical actions like vacuuming and brushing can help, but emulsification and dissolving are also effective chemical processes using:

  • Wet cleaning
  • Solvents
  • Detergents

It is important to implement necessary cleaning strategies when the loose soils and bulk of the soot residues have been resolved with mechanical action and preliminary efforts. Thymol products, citrus-based solutions, and wood crème pastes are all used to restore the original sheen and rich contrast of natural hardwood flooring.

Checking for Water Damage

Water damage is an underappreciated secondary effect of fire damage on your commercial property. Whether it was a sprinkler system or first responders working to put out the blaze, a high volume of water was often involved. When this water sits on surfaces like semi-porous hardwood, it can absorb into the material and require special drying practices to overcome.

Hardwood surfaces in your shop or business can require special cleaning and upkeep after challenging fire damages. From soot deposits to water damage from extinguishment, restoration and mitigation solutions should begin as soon as possible. Our SERVPRO of Cutler Bay team can help with effective cleaning and recovery when you call (786) 901-7024. 

Has Undisclosed Commercial Water Damage Affected Your Newly Purchased Cutler Bay Real Estate Office

SERVPRO Technicians are Experts in Their Field of Remediating Water Damage on Your Property

After an extended period of working for someone else, starting your own business can be a dream come true for many people. Owning the company itself and the building you will conduct your business in is even more pleasant. Finding out that there are substantial problems with your new building can put a real ding in your happiness. Defects that are not superficial or aesthetic but caused by water can signal much more severe problems. Water damage can lead to structural deficiencies and increased microbial activity. A smelly, tattered-looking office is not a setting conducive to selling other real estate to potential buyers and can seriously hurt your profit margins.

Office buildings are often remodeled before being listed, hiding existing commercial water damage in Cutler Bay. Remodeling does not remove the damage, however. It usually leaves new owners in the dark about such issues, posing risks that aren't apparent until after the purchase has been finalized and the new owner has moved in. Other real estate agents you work with regularly can only disclose facts about the building's condition that the seller has told them about, which can leave you with only legal options to pursue after repair work has been completed.

SERVPRO can help you repair the building to prevent secondary water damage from becoming an issue and help document the damage's extent. Repair costs related to existing damage that was never disclosed are often recoverable if proper documentation is presented. Because we know you want to open your agency as soon as possible, we can work around your day-to-day operations if you wish.

Suppose you prefer to have new carpeting installed. In that case, our Commercial Carpet Maintenance Technician (CCMT) can provide this service and then follow up by shampooing the carpet to remove the high level of chemicals left behind by the manufacturing process. While the scent from new carpets is not a health risk, it can still be unpleasant. Removing or decreasing its strength is often more desirable than allowing it to remain.

Water damage that affects commercial settings should be taken as seriously as it would if that damage was found in your home. Working in any building, office, or home can be detrimental to your health and safety if there are unattended issues from water damage. Even if you don't see standing water in your business, this can be true. Our technicians have certifications in Commercial Drying (CDS) and Water Damage Restoration (WRT). They are always available to make sure that you can open for business as planned and then remain open so you can serve your clients without interruption.

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484 is always ready to take your call, and we can arrive as early as one hour afterward. Let us help you keep your business healthy from the start by ridding the structure of problems that can become substantial detrimental issues later.

Can Commercial Mold Remediation Clean Cutler Bay Walls?

SERVPRO Technicians Can Safely Mitigate Mold Damage in Cutler Bay Business Properties

A Cutler Bay business with mold damage has a definite problem. Worse, the mold will not go away on its own, and the situation will not get better without mitigation. 

Upon arrival at a Cutler Bay business for mold remediation, SERVPRO technicians get to work determining how far and wide the mold infestation spread throughout the building. Next, they ascertain the reason for the mold growth. Typical scenarios that the techs routinely deal with include:

  • Poor ventilation trapping humid air
  • Slow leaks from the exterior or plumbing
  • Heavy traffic areas not drying

Walls can show visible signs of mold damage such as discoloration, and water stains can indicate mold inside the interior wall cavities. Unfortunately, when sheetrock has mold exposure, it usually requires removal to halt the infestation spread. Along with the building materials, the insulation also needs to get removed and disposed of as it has no potential for reuse. 

Business owners will also notice the containment around the work area. This action by the techs stops the spread of airborne spores into the ventilation system and other building areas. The techs can cover desks and equipment with heavy gauge plastic to keep them from being affected during the mold remediation process and causing disruption or delays in reopening.

Before the repairs on the walls get completed, the technicians use a combination of antimicrobial cleaning agents and sealants to prevent any opportunistic airborne spores from germinating before repairs are made to halt the issue creating a hospitable environment for sustaining mold

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484 brings years of experience and professional training to Cutler Bay mold remediation jobs. The certified techs work to make the mold damage "Like it never even happened."

Water Removal in Your Cutler Bay Sandwich Shop

The same sinks that you use for cleaning off fresh vegetables and washing hands before you handle fresh loaves of bread for your customers can also be a disaster waiting to happen for your Cutler Bay sandwich shop. As fixtures like a faucet or the pipe beneath the counter age, connectors and fittings weaken. Leaks are a clear first indicator of a severe problem, and you should take the opportunity to fix this issue while you have professionals dry out your damaged prep area.

Water Damage Restoration

Because of the damage occurring mainly behind the scenes away from your customers, our SERVPRO team can work efficiently to contain water damage in your Cutler Bay shop. Our effective drying and even mopping techniques can reduce the migration of moisture out into more problematic areas that are higher traffic regions of the shop. In the prep area, we can establish an active drying zone to quickly remove any moisture and dampness while allowing our team of general contractors to work on the needs of the sink area.

As much as everyone wants to prioritize the drying and restoration of the water damage that resulted from the persistent sink leak, repairing the plumbing damage is a critical step to reduce future exposure and to keep your business going. We have a team of licensed commercial contractors in-house that can work alongside our Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) to reinstall new fixtures, connectors, or fittings to suit the situation.

We can work quickly to repair these effects and to work around the traffic of your employees because we can appreciate the pace of your business and the need for all of its elements to be functional and accessible. From the coolers with fresh produce to the sink that we can quickly and correctly repair with our building trades expertise, we can make this damaging scenario “Like it never even happened.”

Are Cutler Bay Businesses at Risk of Fire Damage from Cooking Equipment?

7/20/2021 (Permalink)

If your business property is damaged by a fire, call on the experts at SERVPRO for assistance.

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay Can Help to Reduce Losses at your Business Following Fire Damage

Businesses can sometimes fall victim to commercial property fires, forcing temporary closures and loss of revenue. One of the most common causes of a premises fire is cooking equipment which may be in use in offices, healthcare facilities or restaurants. The crucial factor in controlling losses at your business is to enlist the help of a professional service who is qualified to perform:

  • Fire damage restoration
  • Smoke remediation
  • Fire restoration

Most commercial kitchen areas are fitted with tiles with decent resistance to fire damage in your Cutler Bay business. However, smoke residues can be time-consuming to remove, especially when animal proteins, fats, or grease are involved. These greasy soot deposits spread around easily and usually require chemical action alongside sufficient dwell time to break down the soot's adherence to surfaces. Our technicians can:

  • Temporarily remove and detach installed kitchen equipment such as ovens, extractors, and refrigerators. 
  • Apply a powerful chemical counteractant to break down the connection between soot particles and the surface, allowing efficient cleaning. 
  • Recoloring grout in between tiles to ensure a uniform, clean finish to the tiles and restoring them to a preloss condition. 

Property fires can happen at commercial premises. Contact SERVPRO of Cutler Bay for commercial fire damage restoration at (305) 278-8484.

SERVPRO is Ready to Help Get Your Business Open Again After Water Damage

We are available to clean up the mess regardless of its makeup and get things running for you as smoothly for you and your patrons.

During our work, we assess the situation to determine what we can do so that your business can be at least partially open.

Water Mitigation in Humid Conditions in Cutler Bay

4/1/2021 (Permalink)

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.

SERVPRO Serves Cutler Ridge With Commercial Fire Damage Cleanup Services

Even a small scale fire in a business property can leave a host of problems to deal with, such as: 

Soot on the walls and ceiling

  • The need to inspect stock for damage
  • Potential secondary issues from water damage
  • Charred building materials that need removal

When handling commercial fire damage cleanup in Cutler Ridge business properties, SERVPRO technicians often recommend that the property get temporarily closed. There are a few reasons why, including the potential to transfer soot particles to currently undamaged areas, as well as the soot being a potential irritant to some people. 

Inspection Before Cleaning

The technicians carefully inspect the furnishings, articles, and in the cases of retail or warehouses, any stock on-site for potential damage before moving it to another area during the restoration services. For smoke-damaged items that are also non-porous, immersion cleaning where the item gets submerged in a cleaning solution is one of the most common ways to remove the residues. 

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484 supports the local Cutler Ridge area for commercial fire damage cleanup services, and the trained technicians are available 24/7 for any size mitigation needed.

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay Provides Commercial Water Damage Restoration to Local Business.

Cutler Bay is a small suburb located in Miami, with a population of around 45,000 residents. Cutler's history extends far back with archaeological evidence of indigenous tribes having first settled there over 10,000 years ago. As a part of the Union, Cutler was first established in the 1880s but only became an incorporated township in 2005. Like much of Florida, residents here enjoy hot summers, white beaches, a wealth of greenery, and coastal waterways. The nearby Charles Deering Estate is home to the Cutler fossil site, which has archaeological remains of saber-toothed tigers, California Condors, and Wooly Mammoths. The modern-day coastal town provides a fresh blend of nightlife, food outlets, and bars that line the bay's boardwalks. 

What separates this township from surrounding Miami is the hundreds of greenery miles, national parks, and coastline. Larry and Penny Thompson park grounds stretch out to a stunning 300 acres of wildlife. Visitors to the site can take advantage of some 200 campsites that allow city dwellers to get back to nature over a weekend by fishing, hiking, and camping- all the while maintaining access to clean, running hot-water. For a more foraging focused trip, there's the fruit and spice park on 187th Avenue. Tours take place covering the abundance of fruit and vegetation between 11 am and 3 pm each day. The Fruit and Spice park plays host to over 50,000 visitors each year who explore the 37 acres of unique wildlife species.

  • The Blackpoint Ocean Grill on Blackpoint Marina serves up a culinary feast of fresh seafood every day alongside an alluring range of cocktails. Frequented by yacht owners, sea captains, residents, and tourists, the marina's stunning views make this an iconic destination in Cutler Bay.
  • Zoo Miami is one of the largest zoos in this US corner, spanning over 700 acres with 100 exhibits to explore. Starting on South-West 152nd St, the zoo and gardens provide hours of entertainment for visitors to the Sunshine State. 
  • Redland Market has been providing Cutler Bay residents and restaurants with various fantastic local produce since as far back as 1987.

Explore Cutler Bay's Miami-Dade Heritage by Visiting the Deering Estate.

The Deering Estate is part of the National Register of Historic Places with openings to explore the grounds and museum. Charles Deering was a 20th-century industrialist from Chicago who developed these grounds between the 19th and 20th centuries. As an avid art collector and preservationist, the estate encapsulates both his philanthropic approach to life as well as numerous hiking trails that offer breathtaking experiences of the protected wildlife. The Deering Estate covers over 444 acres of land, which includes the Atlantic Rock Ridge as well as the meeting point between the Everglades and the Biscayne Bay. The oldest buildings on offer date back to 1896, while the Stone House is a shining example of modernist architecture. 

The Deering Estate remained in the family until 1986 when Florida purchased the land to open it for public use. Much of the contemporary art collection stored in the Stone House was taken to the Art Institute of Chicago. However, the remaining collection of tapestries, sculptures, crockery, and canvases are open to Cutler Bay residents all year round. Visitors to the historic site can choose from a range of guided tours and experiences or head out on the trails by themselves. The recent re-opening allows visitation throughout with social distancing and Florida State Covid protocols being followed at all times. The main entrance for the Deering Estate is on Southwest 72nd Avenue. 

  • The estate opens to the public everyday between 10 am and 5 pm, with admissions, only accepted up until 4 pm. Children under the age of three years can enter for free, while concessions are available for Seniors and Veterans. 
  • Natural Preserve Tours occur from the main entrance at 12:30 pm every day, where guides inform visitors of the endangered species, archaeological sites, and terrestrial caves, among many other exciting natural aspects located on the grounds. 
  • The estate also offers seasonal tours that run throughout the year. These include exhibitions of artists, natural photography, night hikes, and daily historical tours. Check their website to find out more information. 
  • There are also opportunities for space rentals for events, group tours, visits, and Kayaking. Kayaking takes place on the Biscayne Bay and is well-suited to beginners. Kayaks, life jackets, paddles, and bags are provided for those taking a Kayaking tour.

Opening your Cutler Bay clothing boutique after a crisis like a severe flood is vital for keeping your business running and profitable. However, floodwater can cause long-lasting damage if not treated right away. Unaffected inventory needs protection after a flood so that the added humidity and moisture do not damage the clothing. We understand that the South Florida weather conditions add to humidity levels, making it more dangerous for your merchandise.  Our technicians have capabilities to clean and protect your items so that you can get back to business as usual as quickly as possible.

How Do I Know That the Merchandise is Secure?

    •    Determine which items are the most urgent.
    •    Carefully itemize each piece of clothing.
    •    Sort clothing into categories depending on whether or not they need restoration services.
    •    Technicians complete the necessary work at the boutique, including restoring humidity levels to pre-flood conditions before returning your merchandise.

How Can Business Owners Limit Hollywood Water Damage to Their Electronics

6/12/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Saves Hollywood Offices from Long Water Loss Closures

SERVPRO Gives Tips for Handling Electronics after Water Damage to Commercial Properties in Hollywood

Electronics can become hazardous when they come into contact with water. Commercial property managers should be rightly concerned about the expense of replacing electronic items. There is also the safety of their staff that needs consideration. Temporary closures can impact revenue, so it is necessary to hire a professional service that can complete work thoroughly and quickly. 

We are a localized service with a team of experienced professionals dealing with commercial water damage in Hollywood. SERVPRO has a particular procedure for damage limitation concerning electrical equipment. The golden rule with these types of losses is to avoid switching on or running an electrical current through any items that have fallen prey to moisture.  

The first step we take is to remove electronic items from the affected area. If the items are attached, we can cover them using plastic sheeting or other equipment. When called to a commercial clean up, we generally send a project manager whom you can communicate with directly during the service. This SERVPRO employee can contact a qualified electronics vendor on your behalf if more than the exterior of the electronic equipment needs servicing. 

As a restoration service, SERVPRO is not able to restore electrical equipment for you. We can limit the damage caused to your office computers, printers, scanners, and monitors. One vital step is to ensure electronics do not suffer further damage is to control the temperature. We use heating units to help dry equipment and prevent equipment from cooling to the dew point, where water vapor turns to liquid.  

Maintaining equipment temperature above the dew point could be crucial to mitigating the loss of otherwise expensive damages. In most cases, we deploy dehumidifiers to help control RH levels in the affected area. Water damages frequently go beyond the scope of your janitorial team, so when electronic pieces of equipment are concerned, you need professional help, which SERVPRO can provide. Of course, we are there to reduce potential water damage to your office investments like desks, furnishings, and flooring. 

When your office or business needs restoration, contact SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484 for an immediate response.

What Can Our Cutler Bay Office Expect From SERVPRO When It Comes To Water Damage?

4/28/2020 (Permalink)

Let SERVPRO handle business for you, so you can get back to business.

Commercial Water Damage in Cutler Bay Real Estate Office Gets A Fast Turnaround.

A pipe break overnight in a local real estate office put the brakes on servicing potential homeowners until the commercial water damage got cleaned up. The property owner did not have any type of environmental monitoring on the security system. Hence, the leak flowed freely until the manager arrived to open the office with over half an inch of standing water in the front area of the office.

After immediately shutting off the water main, the office manager called SERVPRO to clean up the commercial water damage in the Cutler Bay office. The business could not reopen until it was dried and ready for clients again.

Scoping and Water Removal 

To do a complete job of water extraction, locating the migration path of the water loss needs to happen. It cannot get accomplished visually and requires the use of different types of moisture detection equipment to "see" behind walls, under floors, and determine if baseboards or carpet needs removal to extract and dry the area. 

Necessary Actions for Water Loss Cleanup

When water wicks into sheetrock, the deterioration is a rapid process. The techs measure above the waterline by several inches and cut it away to save as much of the wall as possible. This halts any further water loss to the sheetrock and leaves a clean edge for easy repairs after the completion of mitigation efforts. 

Limiting Disruptions to the Office

SERVPRO techs want to get the real estate office reopened as fast as possible; however, the property must be dry and clean for reopening. They remove forms and documents to another area of the office, so the highly humid conditions do not damage the paperwork. The desks and furnishings get raised on blocks and dried in place, so there is little to move back after drying. 

Prepping for Reopening

After the property confirms as dry, the technicians wipe down the surfaces with their cleaning agents. They also supply a report that details actions taken as well as the repairs needed to bring the business to its pre-loss condition. 

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484 has certified techs available 24/7 to restore properties with commercial water damage and make the loss, "Like it never even happened."

Commercial Flood Damage In Your Cutler Bay Resort

2/17/2020 (Permalink)

In an emergency, you need efficient restoration services.

Restoring your Cutler Bay Holiday Resort from Commercial Flood Damage

An incoming flood can cause havoc to your beachside resort and severely impact your yearly revenues. As a low lying region of Miami, we are at risk of the fallout from tropical storms as well as the overflowing of canals, lakes, and ditches. Floodwaters may impact outdoor and indoor areas of your property, including guest rooms and social areas. Restoring these rooms can be challenging and take with several weeks, with each day adding onto your lost revenue.

Our team of dedicated commercial flood damage technicians here in Cutler Bay can put together an affirmative plan of action to get your resort back to business. We have strong bonds with commercial clients throughout this community, and our technicians have first-hand experience working on large loss sites. That means we can remove large amounts of furniture like beds, sofas, and bars from the flood zone quickly using material handling equipment and even offer temporary storage for certain goods while the restoration is underway.

In the immediate aftermath of a flood, the essential task is to perform safety and mitigation tasks. We can bring in industrial generators with ground fault circuit interrupters to ensure that electrical fires or malfunctions are protected on your switchboard. These generators can power SERVPRO restoration equipment, pumps as well as the appropriate lighting to work on the job site safely.

When a flash flood strikes, the exterior walls of your resort may be adversely affected, showing signs of staining from mud, debris or other contaminants. Using power washers on the exterior walls can help to restore the outer appearance of your business to its preloss condition. If water supply lines are shut off due to flooding, SERVPRO can mobilize portable water storage tanks for this equipment.

Floodwaters can often bring with them unpleasant odors. We can deploy powerful Ozone generators that release an unstable gas into the atmosphere and eliminate odor particles. Often, for large loss sites like a holiday resort, Ozone generators can be a useful tool for industrial action against odor.

In an emergency, you need efficient restoration services. Contact SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484.

A water line that was installed under the concrete pad cracked and soaked the tiled aisle and some of the adjacent carpeting.

Commercial Water Removal in Cutler Bay After Dishwasher Failure

In the US, 14,000 people a day are expected to encounter water-related disasters at home or work. Local restaurants and bistros are just one of many industries that make regular use of water-reliant fixtures. While a commercial dishwasher is a must-have in any eatery, a larger cleaning apparatus means bigger disasters can strike.

If a commercial dishwasher develops an overnight leak that requires water removal in your Cutler Bay bistro's kitchen, the team at SERVPRO wants to help you get back to business as usual as soon as possible. These highly-trained technicians know the ins and out of cleaning water-related disasters while ensuring that your eatery is compliant with local, state, and federal codes.

If left unchecked, standing water can seep into tile grout and potentially damage the subflooring underneath. Because grout can expand when exposed to moisture for long periods, this eventually compromises the seal between the tiles and grout, which can affect the mortar holding tiles in place. Subflooring can also become warped and prone to bacterial growth if not thoroughly dried through professional means.

What SERVPRO Can Do

When SERVPRO comes to your restaurant, our IICRC-certified professionals can get to work ridding your restaurant of water immediately. The team can utilize portable extractors and wet/dry vacuums to address standing water less than two inches in height. In cases where water levels are above two inches with no solids in them, submersible pumps are sufficient. Sensors, meters, and other tools can be used to monitor moisture levels during the drying process carefully. Advanced technologies, like infrared cameras, are effective at pinpointing water-affected areas behind walls and under flooring.

After extraction, drying can proceed with low-grain refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers. These are highly efficient for replacing the humid air with warm, dry air in combination with centrifugal air movers. Desiccant dehumidifiers can also be used to tackle moisture in subflooring and other building materials and reduce it to safe levels. Commercial box fans and EPA-registered disinfectants can eliminate odor-causing particles and microbe growth effectively. Ultra-low volume (ULV) fogging may also be used in cases where stronger odors persist.

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay is ready to help at a moment's notice. We're Faster to Any Size Disaster so your business can reopen quickly. Call (305) 278-8484 today for 24/7 disaster cleanup that is available 365 days a year.

Extracting Water After A Flood In Cutler Bay

9/23/2019 (Permalink)

Microbial growth can occur in as little as three days, making addressing the drying and cleaning of your building a priority.

Extracting Fast Food Restaurant Flooding in Cutler Bay

Franchise locations like your fast food joint in Cutler Bay already have an established volume of dedicated customers, helping your location to stay busy beginning the day that you first opened your doors. With your location, restaurants like yours are perpetually at the mercy of weather events and changing conditions. With severe weather systems like tropical storms and hurricanes, the possibility of flooding demands a need for an emergency plan.
 
Business owners want to limit the amount of time that their restaurant stays closed, yet many do not fully know how detrimental flood damage in Cutler Bay fast food spots is. Restaurant flooding can pose a risk to your dining area fixtures and furniture, but it can also affect your appliances and be hazardous to those exposed depending on the contamination level. Level 2 Gray Water contamination can spread bacteria and contaminants throughout the facility that must get addressed before your business can reopen.
 
One of the most pressing risks, when flooding occurs in your building, is how quickly water loss incidents like this can develop into mold damage or other threats. Microbial growth can occur in as little as three days, making addressing the drying and cleaning of your building a priority. With even mid-level contamination, several exposed materials must get removed altogether, lending access to the full array of wet areas to begin drying with positive pressure systems and negative air chambers.
 
Extraction is the first step that must get taken when addressing standing water collecting on the floors. While tilework installed throughout both the dining area and the kitchen are less susceptible to immediate saturation and exposure, protecting this flooring and other exposed materials can limit the later costs of restoration and recovery once mitigation tasks like water removal and preliminary drying complete.
 
Running a fast food restaurant means meeting the rapid-pace demands of your customer base and being available when they need you. Our SERVPRO of Cutler Bay team understands the stresses of temporary closures and makes sure that these circumstances are short, and the loss incident is “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (305) 278-8484.

Are You Storing Water Damage in Your Cutler Ridge Self-Storage Facility?

7/16/2019 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO at the first sign of water intrusion to keep your storage units dry.

Get Prompt Commercial Water Removal for Your Cutler Ridge Self-Storage Facility

Self-storage facilities have gained popularity in the last few decades. People use them to store items they do not have room for in their homes or businesses. These facilities offer a safe place to store items until the owner is ready to use or dispose of them. However, storage units also pose a threat of water damage.

The air conditioning system of a climate-controlled self-storage facility can malfunction and dump water into several storage units. In such a situation, seeking immediate commercial water removal for your Cutler Ridge self-storage facility can prevent costly destruction to the items stored in it. Water can ruin possessions like bedding, bookcases, mattresses, and bed frames completely. Moisture can also lead to mold infestation of the stored items. Mold can cause health problems and destroy papers, wood furniture, fabrics, and other porous materials.

One thing you should do when you notice signs of water intrusion is verifying the severity of the destruction. A simple check is not enough to establish the full extent of the issue. Water can soak into building materials far from where the instruction began without creating a visible sign of destruction. To establish how far the moisture or water has spread, you need special tools to measure moisture in building materials. Our SERVPRO team members use moisture meters to measure the moisture content of materials. With these details, we can concentrate on drying the affected materials.

We have the equipment and experience to minimize risks from hazards like weakened mezzanine floors that may collapse, mold spores, and exposure to fiberglass insulation. We can complete drying tasks in a manner that reduces the overall destruction and the possibility of future issues. Our Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASDs) can use several specialized tools to dry out your self-storage facility, including:

  • Wet/dry vacuums to remove the stagnant water.
  • Air movers and different dehumidifiers like the LGR desiccant dehumidifier to eliminate moisture from the building and its contents.
  • Thermo-hygrometers to track the humidity in the storage units.

To save money and use storage units efficiently, customers may pack their items from wall to wall and from the floor to the ceiling. Drying such a storage unit poses a challenge. Our SERVPRO crew can also analyze and remove moisture-compromised possessions like furniture and separate the severely damaged ones from the ones with minimal water damage. Our technicians can also help you document the damage, including taking photos of the ruined areas and items to make it easier to file an insurance claim. We can also work with your insurance provider to manage the insurance paperwork and process.

When dealing with a water intrusion incident in your self-storage unit in Cutler Bay, Franjo or Three Lakes, contact SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484 for water removal services. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

How Flood Effects Can Damage Your Cutler Bay Shop

Flooding is a more pressing threat to Cutler Bay and all of its businesses than many owners realize. With so many smaller shops, many of which that do not have the extensive and comprehensive coverage of multi-billion dollar franchises can find the effects of flooding to be devastating to their facility and its contents. While you might not have the means to prevent these natural disasters from occurring fully, there are ways that you can keep restoration costs and time down.

The first step any shop owner should take for their Cutler Bay business after flood damage is to reach out to our SERVPRO team.

Even without the threat of black water or grey water from various potential contaminants some flooding situations can present for area homes and businesses, there are still multiple layers of effects to combat to return your business to its original condition. We understand that in many cases, the longer a business has its doors closed, the more likely they never reopen again. We work hard to get you back up and running as fast as possible following a widespread disaster like flooding.

Our SERVPRO professionals must address the pressing concerns first when arriving at a flooded shop, and that often means removing standing water from the flooring and carpeting. In cases of severe saturation, even with clean water, removal of carpeting or other flooring materials might be necessary if business owners do not get mitigation work started to dry out these damaged components.

There are many reasons why flooding can be a dangerous and costly emergency for your shop. Whenever these disasters strike, you can count on the fast response and experience of our SERVPRO of Cutler Bay team to make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (305) 278-8484.

Is High Indoor Humidity Causing Water Damage to Your Miami Business?

12/27/2018 (Permalink)

Inspect your business often for signs of high humidity levels.

Miami's Commercial Water Removal Team Talks About Problems with High Humidity

If a water leak takes place inside your Miami gift shop, there are several different types of problems that could occur. When moisture comes into direct contact with items it can cause them to become saturated and force you to call in a professional commercial water removal company like SERVPRO. When your building materials or contents come into direct contact with moisture the problems created are considered primary damage. When the water leak creates other issues like elevated humidity levels or mold, the problems are called secondary damage. When things get wet inside your store, the increased relative humidity levels can also cause problems that become a part of your commercial water removal project. 

Our SERVPRO technicians have experience in dealing with problems on both residential and non-residential properties. We know that when conducting commercial water removal at your Miami property, we must watch humidity levels closely.  In humid areas like Florida controlling indoor humidity levels is vital when trying to prevent secondary damage. Once the water comes into contact with your contents and building materials, the moisture starts evaporating from the wet materials and turns into vapor in the air since things in nature always strive to reach an equilibrium level. However, once water vapor starts building up, the relative humidity levels rise to the point where the vapor itself can start to damage your building materials and products in your store. 

When indoor relative humidity levels rise above 70 percent, it becomes challenging to dry out your structural components. Once the humidity levels get that high, organic substances inside your store become at risk for mold damage. When humidity levels rise, some of the products in your gift store could get damaged by the water vapor which is why any time our SERVPRO technicians work towards mitigating water damage we set up dehumidifiers to lower indoor relative humidity levels. Reducing the humidity not only helps reduce the chance of secondary problems taking place but also helps speed up the natural evaporation process. 

If you ever need water removed from your gift shop, call SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484 24/7.

SERVPRO Offers Ways to Avoid Having to Close Your Doors After Water Damage in Your Hollywood Diner

9/21/2018 (Permalink)

If your diner faces water damage after an event, contact SERVPRO for effective remediation services.

When Commercial Water Damage Threatens Your Hollywood Diner with Closure

The convenience that small diners provide to locals and tourists in Hollywood helps everyone eat healthy meals while still engaging in running errands or sightseeing in our beautiful area. A tiny leak in a kitchen drain can cause both decay of materials and an offensive odor in your establishment.
 
Maintaining a clean and sanitary environment for the preparation of meals for your patrons becomes difficult when commercial water damage in Hollywood creates undesired conditions of filth and unsightliness. Diners want to smell pleasant food odors, but heavy scents from water damage make this almost impossible.

SERVPRO wants to help our local businesses thrive. We know that effective prevention of water damage keeps buildings and facilities free of potentially harmful bacterial growths, especially in kitchens and lavatories. During National Preparedness Month, even small disasters should gain attention. Eliminating these from your building keeps them from spreading and possibly contaminating other areas, including food preparation counters. Doing so can help you more easily prevent small disasters that might affect only a few individuals.
 
The understanding professionals at SERVPRO understand that cross-contamination can affect almost any area of your diner. While we clean and restore the damaged area, we take care to sanitize everything. We use mats and protective sheeting to keep things neat. When dust might pose a problem, we have methods that contain this in a small area and prevent fine particles from filtering out into the rest of your kitchen. We do everything possible to help you stay open, even as we work. When odors linger, we can provide you with highly effective odor control measures that do not detract from the delicious aromas produced by your kitchen staff's cooking.

Commercial Fire Damage Technicians In Hollywood

5/8/2018 (Permalink)

If a fire ever takes place inside your Hollywood restaurant, it could inhibit business operations.

Commercial Fire Damage Technicians

Kitchens in Hollywood are a common place for fires to start. If a fire ever takes place inside your Hollywood restaurant, it could inhibit business operations. Not only can fires burn materials and contents but smoke can travel from the kitchen and affect your dining room.

Smoke coming from a fire can cause many problems that if not mitigated can disrupt business in the future. Whenever mitigating commercial fire damage in Hollywood, soot cleaning and deodorization are vital. Smoke can travel far from the source of the blaze and leave behind soot residues, soils, and malodor particles.

If not treated appropriately smoke can leave behind unpleasant aromas that can affect your restaurant business in the future. There are many steps needed to properly restore a building so that no burnt smells exist. The first step is to remove any burnt or charred material that puts off malodor particles into the air. Any severely burnt contents or building materials that are near the kitchen where the fire started get removed.

After everything that cannot be saved gets removed, the cleaning of soot residues begins. Soot left behind from smoke also creates pungent odors. Some surfaces are easier to clean soot off of than others. Soot that adheres to different surfaces is composed of various chemicals based on the type of fuels burned during the blaze.

Our SERVPRO technicians use various chemicals based on the type of soot and the kind of surface affected. Porous surfaces do not clean thoroughly with wet cleaning methods because the moisture can soak the soot into the material. Wallpapers and drywall get cleaned best using dry cleaning methods. Whereas, non-porous materials such as the stainless steel inside your restaurant's kitchen can get cleaned by spraying and wiping with wet cleaning agents.

Whenever soot cleaning takes place, measures get taken so that the cleaning process does not cause secondary damage or inhibit your restaurant's business. With wet cleaning, we put down plastic on the floors and make sure that streaking does not cause more damage. Any areas where food gets served get masked off with plastic.

In some cases, we change the way we conduct work processes so that your business stays operating as usual and your loss of revenue is kept to a minimum. For professional help when a fire affects your business, call SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484.

Protecting Your Lanes from Commercial Water Damage in Miami

2/25/2018 (Permalink)

If your bowling alley suffers from water damage, contact SERVPRO right away for drying out and restoration services.

Team SERVPRO Arrives Quickly to Dry Out Your Property and Help Prevent Any Secondary Damages

Managing a large establishment that serves the needs of a diverse client base in Miami includes everyday maintenance plus seasonal tasks that help keep things running smoothly. Because bowling often makes people hungry, keeping your kitchen facilities in tip-top shape can ensure this portion of your profits remains viable. However, accidents in the kitchen can lead to problems in other areas of your establishment.
 
When a bowling alley sustains commercial water damage in Miami, it can affect any area of your business, including the main attraction - your lanes. While your tavern area, other gaming facilities, and lounge might suffer some damage, the wood covering your lanes can become ruined relatively quickly when exposed to water. This can also happen when a small fire initiates sprinklers over the lanes to activate. Regardless of the source of the water, SERVPRO acts quickly to make everything "Like it never even happened."
 
Mopping up water when you find it on top of wood surfaces may suffice if without delay. However, if any length of time passed, penetration through both the pores of the wood and the seams between the wooden strips can mean water exists in each strips' interior, as well as below it and to its sides. This condition, surrounded by water and moisture often spells trouble in the way of curling, splitting, cracking, and warping - attributes not even novice bowlers tolerate.
 
Our Applied Structural Drying Technician (ASD) knows how to provide the services your bowling alley requires in such situations and can help your business recover quickly. When your offices suffer, we can help preserve documents and other items, including furniture, from intensive damage. The same goes for furniture in your tavern and lounge. When damage occurs in an isolated area, this needs attention, as well, to prevent secondary water damages from occurring. Water damage happens quickly and then spreads in an outward manner wherever the water goes. It never goes away on its own.
 
When we must remove materials from your bowling alley, business owners can rest assured that SERVPRO always provides training to our technicians on carrying out complex tasks in occupied buildings. Your employees still must fulfill their duties, and we work diligently to ensure our presence does not become a hindrance to them. Our crews understand it is also crucial that we minimize your business' downtime, if any, as much as possible.
 
SERVPRO of Cutler Bay hires qualified technicians from our local areas who are proud to serve the communities around Cutler Bay, Franjo, and Perrine. Water damage happens quickly, so when your business suffers such damage, contact our 24-hour service line at (305) 278-8484. We Are Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Remediating Commercial Water Damage in Cutler Ridge

2/2/2018 (Permalink)

When your sprinkler system fails, water can flood your business. If you do experience water damage, contact SERVPRO for remediation efforts.

Certified SERVPRO Technicians Quickly Dry Out Your Water Damaged Business Property

Despite the extreme weather which can strike our community, Cutler Ridge businesses usually have more problems with water from common sources like a split water line or faulty sprinklers. These problems invariably occur overnight and leave owners a mess when they come in to open their doors the next morning.

How quickly we can remove the commercial water damage from a Cutler Ridge business depends on the amount of water and the contents inside. For example, if the sprinklers fail in a fabric store, SERVPRO technicians spend more time drying inventory than the actual building.

Regardless of the source of the water, our first task is to stop or block it. If the store owner has not already done so, we can start with turning off the water main. After that, we attempt to find the failure. Our restoration specialists can repair or replace minor issues like a rusted out connection, but if there is a major system failure, we recommend calling a licensed plumber.

Our next step is to remove any standing water inside the business. We can do this with a combination of pumps and water extraction wands. The pumps remove most of the excess water, and then we use the wands to draw remaining amounts off of surfaces and out of carpets.

Usually, we try to complete this action to have a dry, safe environment to walk across before moving on to the next task. In a fabric store, however, some types of cloth can begin to rot after it absorbs too much water. There is also the risk of mold spores expanding and growing on damp inventory.

SERVPRO technicians can stop this with dehumidifiers, fans, and air movers. We first set up the dehumidifiers to begin drawing moisture from not just the nearby bolts of cloth, but surrounding air as well. Each of these devices can remove up to 25 gallons of water per day.

To assist with the dehumidifiers, we set up fans to draw out the damp, cool air from the structure and force it outside. This action also helps to circulate the air which further dries the inventory. Next, we set up air movers to force warm, dry air across the fabrics to speed up drying them.

If there is a large amount of cloth which was soaked, we can bring in tall racks used to dry curtains and drapes. We can then spread out the bolts which make the operation of the air movers and other devices more efficient.

At SERVPRO of Cutler Bay, our goal is to help you reopen your doors as quickly as possible. If you need our help, call today at (305) 278-8484 for more information or to schedule an appointment.

No business likes the fallout of downtime, but a school with significant water loss issues inconveniences parents and robs the young scholars of quality learning time. Working with an experienced restoration company gives all involved the best chance of a minimal shutdown yet showing favorable results.
 
The large water heater in your preschool cracked overnight, necessitating commercial water removal in several of the rooms in Palmetto Bay. Not only did the 50 gallon capacity of the tank leak, but the fresh water intake continued running, substantially increasing the amount of water flowing through the space. Our plan is straightforward. Find and remove the water, and then use commercial strength drying equipment to restore the teaching and play areas fast.
 
Job one is turning off the water continuing to flow into the ruined heater. Then the pumps and extractors mounted on each SERVPRO response vehicle swiftly evacuate the standing water. The multitude of storage areas and bins in the learning spaces can hide water, so it is crucial that our workers measure moisture levels in a range of places and use scanning technology to locate pockets of water trapped between walls and in various recesses.
 
Hidden water found is pulled out into the extractor tanks using flexible houses and wands designed to get into small or narrow slots. Any residual water may be drained with carefully drilled holes in the removal of sections of drywall. Targets set by SERVPRO employees, trained in psychrometry, the science of drying, inform the temperature, fan speed, and use of desiccant processes as the drying continues. Fast action by our technicians removes moisture before it damages the school’s structure and content, and permits the school to resume operations with a very short interruption.
 
Powerful air movers and dehumidifiers reduce the moisture levels in structures and the air. Rugs, linens, and toys are removed from the space, and SERVPRO cleaning and drying experts launder and dry the items for continued use in the school. Throughout the process, technicians are on high alert for signs of any mildew or mold, which our company can remediate efficiently if found.
 
SERVPRO of Cutler Bay has the skill and equipment to restore a local preschool after quantities of water soak the area. Waste no time in calling (305) 278-8484 to schedule an inspection and develop a recovery plan.

Commercial water damage is fast becoming a serious threat for business owners.

Sources Of Commercial Water Damage

Commercial water damage is fast becoming a serious threat for business owners in Palmetto Bay. If you aren't careful, it can cause thousands of dollars of losses in stock and bring your business to its knees. To ensure that your hard work is not frustrated, you need to take a few measures to protect your shop, store, or warehouse. This includes identifying some of the possible sources of water damage in your premises to be able to control them effectively.

If you are unfortunate enough to experience commercial water damage in your Palmetto Bay business, you can count on SERVPRO to restore everything to its original state. After calculating inventory loss, our technicians can come in and begin the restoration process. The idea is to return your property to pre-damage conditions using IICRC guidelines, ensuring that you get back to work quickly, "Like it never even happened."

Plumbing failures are some of the most common causes of commercial water damage reported to SERVPRO. They can easily cause a flood by releasing hundreds of gallons of water into the building. The usual suspects include malfunctioning sprinkler systems, loose hoses, frozen or broken pipes, and other plumbing sources.

Unexpected flooding can also occur as a result of sudden, intense rainfalls. Heavy downpours can rapidly flood drains, gutters, and downspouts, with the overflow causing extensive commercial water damage to your building. If this happens unexpectedly, SERVPRO can assess the extent of the damage and detect any sources causing water leaks into the structure. Minor leaks are easily overlooked but often lead to water damage issues needing repair. Bathrooms, attics, ceilings, hallways, and wall cavities are especially prone to mold growth from prolonged exposure.

Warehouse vehicles are vital to the efficient running of your day-to-day operations and, therefore, you need to take steps to protect them from commercial water damage. This can be as simple as moving them to higher ground in the event of a weather warning. Parking them on an inclined loading bay, for instance, can keep them from soaking in pools of water that might damage the hydraulics system, engine, or other parts of the truck.

If your business sustains commercial water damage, SERVPRO of Cutler Bay is there to help. We have an extensive stock of resources that can counter any type of water damage on your property. Call us today at (305) 278-8484.

Commercial Flood Damage Restoration Services in Three Lakes for a Ruptured Water Pipe

8/14/2017 (Permalink)

A ruptured pipe can cause damage to your workplace, call SERVPRO for proper water removal and drying.

Correcting Water Damage from a Ruptured Pipe in Your Workplace

A ruptured water pipe in the office can result in a major flood. Mud and water can accumulate up to a few meters from the floor, causing significant disruption in the workplace. If the water pressure is high, it can also harm anyone in the way. The damage can have a toll on the carpet and office furniture, while most of the flooring may need to be replaced.

In case you find your office soaked in water from a burst pipe, SERVPRO can help correct the water damage. We have highly trained technicians properly equipped to control commercial flood damage in Three Lakes businesses. Our techniques are in line with IICRC recommendations to ensure a satisfying cleanup process.

How do ruptured water pipe repair services work?

For ruptured pipes in the office, our technicians shut off the water main and determine the source of leakage. We fix the pipe burst and then seal off the repaired part. To mitigate the water damage, we use proper water removal and drying techniques.

Drying the space

Effective drying requires SERVPRO experts to have adequate knowledge on the use of airflow. The dynamics of airflow are similar to that of a common pool table. The angle at which a billiard ball strikes the bumper determines how it is banked. In the case of airflow, how effective the drying process is, depends on the angle of the air mover. Ideally, the air mover should be positioned at a 45-degree angle, allowing air to bounce off the wall and displace moisture to be replaced with drier air.

Some commercial flood damage situations require drying the ceilings. In this case, we direct airflow across the water-damaged ceilings to release the moisture into the air. Doing this also enables circulation of warm air around the roof. If the office has suspended ceilings, we direct airflow into a few open panels on each side.

A flooded office due to a ruptured pipe can have a significant impact on normal operations. When this happens, you can trust SERVPRO of Cutler Bay for quick and efficient commercial flood damage restoration services. Call us anytime at (305) 278-8484.

Recovery Efforts For Many Disasters Begins With Commercial Water Removal For Cutler Bay Food Stores

6/5/2017 (Permalink)

When your Cutler Bay health food store sustains any commercial water damage, water removal is most often the primary step in recovery efforts.

Commercial Water Removal

Florida is surrounded by ocean on the majority of its border, and the many lakes found in our beautiful state make time on or near the water an even more substantial part of most people's lives. Water can become a serious problem, when it is in the wrong place, which can happen in various circumstances and for just as many different reasons.

When your Cutler Bay health food store sustains any commercial water damage, water removal is most often the primary step in recovery efforts. Firefighters often use thousands of gallons of water to squelch a fire, bathroom water line breaks and malfunctioning sprinklers can flood an area with hundreds of gallons in a short period, and our own climate can backfire on us and send hurricanes and storms our way. Each of these disasters needs water removal before any other restorative or recovery efforts start.

When standing water has collected, one of the first things that must be done is ensuring the safety of those in the area. Not only are electrical shocks possible, but slipping, tripping, or even becoming entangled in hidden debris are all potential hazards. SERVPRO has extensive experience in these highly dangerous situations and can guide you every step of the way. Because removing the majority of the water is done with a truck, danger to our technicians is greatly reduced. As the water's level drops, hazards can be seen much more easily. Our hand-held extraction units further minimize the amount of standing water to the point where we can start the work of restoring your business.

Drying completely does take time, and during the process, we can help you assess the damage to your inventory. Health regulations require that all foodstuffs contaminated by water be disposed of, so detailed inventory sheets can help you not only restock correctly but also provide sufficient documentation to your insurance agent. Recovery from such horrible disasters are much more than the building itself – it is also the look and feel of your store.

At SERVPRO of Cutler Bay, we can help you get things back to how they were before so that it is “Like it never even happened.” Doing so can help you continue serving your customers what they have come to depend on you for the most, a vital and important part of our community's economy and culture.

SERVPRO Helps with Your Insurance Claims After Water Damage in Your Three Lakes Office

SERVPRO Often Interfaces With Your Carrier in Three Lakes Concerning Commercial Water Damage.

Depending on your insurance provider, acquiring a payout after a disaster can either be very easy or relatively difficult. In general, it is best to take insurance proceedings slowly and to hire a lawyer to negotiate on your behalf. Some insurance companies will be unwilling to pay if you do not follow instructions, make small violations, or even fail to respond to their documents. At SERVPRO, we make an effort to work with business owners and insurance companies alike to ensure that the store has to pay as little as possible for repairs and employ a mitigation and restoration strategy designed to minimalize the costs of expensive replacements.
 
In general, an insurance company may make very specific demands related to the initial steps towards repairing your commercial water damage in Three Lakes. Many insurers will want to choose a restoration company for you, which may be how you found out about SERVPRO. Our corporate brand is on the roster of over 315 municipal, state, and Federal agencies as a preferred vendor. This list also includes management companies, insurance agencies, and the like.  Or, they may have given specific guidelines regarding certifications and equipment, and we commonly meet even the strictest of these requirements. Typically, an insurance company won't ask you to make any repairs yourself, and in fact, may specifically request that you avoid making any significant changes without their express approval.
 
Of course, most insurers will want to be notified of any important developments or costs that arise during restorations. In general, our representatives will be able to handle these types of calls, but you should be prepared to answer any questions and sign documents if additional approval is required on your part. Once again, it is probably best to consult a lawyer for any major decisions you may be asked to make. On small levels of damage caused by fire or water, the process may not require an attorney.
 
SERVPRO of Cutler Bay is proud to offer quality restoration services at an affordable price and has a strong relationship with most local and national insurance companies. We can even help with the paperwork.  Call us at (305) 278-8484 to find out more about our services or how we help business owners like you in times of crisis.

Improving Your Commercial Property After Fire Damage

Call SERVPRO To Restore Your Fire Damaged Apartment Building

To Treat Commercial Fire Damage Call SERVPRO

Commercial fire damage can wreak havoc on your business and its profitability, and you may immediately wonder what steps are required to overcome the damage so that business, as usual, can resume as soon as possible. Whether your property has been moderately damaged by a small electrical fire, has been severely damaged by a lightning strike or has experienced some other type of fire damage, you need to respond to the situation quickly so that you can resume operations in your business as soon as possible. By following a few important steps, you can most easily and quickly overcome the damage and improve your property so that business operations can pick up where they left off.

The Issue of Water Damage
When you think about Miami commercial fire damage, you may not think about water damage. However, in most cases, water or chemical fire retardants are used by firefighters to extinguish the fire, and this means that there may be a dirty, ashy and wet material that covers much of the space. This must be cleaned up quickly because of the likelihood of water damage taking hold in the property. Also, when moisture and humidity levels remain high in a property, there is an increased likelihood that mold growth can develop. Therefore, the first step to take when you have commercial fire damage is to extract the water and chemical agents that were used to put out the fire.

The Repairing and Cleaning Processes
The next step in the fire damage repair process is to determine which items are salvageable and which items need to be replaced. Things like carpets and padding that have water or smoke damage may be professionally cleaned to restore them to their former condition. Items that have been burned may need to be entirely replaced and are not salvageable. This final determination is made by you and your insurance company. Keep in mind that certain restoration techniques and processes may be used by our professionals from SERVPRO to improve your charred or damaged property. Damaged office equipment, filing cabinets, and stock may be packed out to our facility for cleaning and restoration.

At SERVPRO of Cutler Bay, we are a locally owned service provider with a team that is available to respond to your emergency situation 24/7/365. We strive for excellence in all that we do, and we go to great lengths to provide exceptional workmanship.
