Restoration & Repair Hazards after Flood Damage in Cutler Bay

3/16/2021 (Permalink)

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
  • Miami Children's Museum

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.

Avoid Infections from Hazardous Materials While Cleaning up Flood Damage in Cutler Bay

Flooding potentially introduces many materials that can be dangerous to our health. The floodwaters bring contaminated materials into buildings and expose other dangers as well. Older buildings may harbor asbestos and lead paint.

We equip our SERVPRO team to deal with all of the potential flood damage hazards in Cutler Bay. Floodwaters can carry sewage, cholera, tetanus, typhoid, polio, hepatitis, and various other infectious diseases.

If asbestos or lead paint is present, we urge homeowners to avoid:

  • Cutting or sawing the material
  • Breaking up walls and flooring
  • Drilling into materials
  • Agitating the surface, removing or moving the material

Let SERVPRO experts manage these situations with your safety as our top priority.
