Our SERVPRO Professionals Have Specialty Tools and Approaches to Recover Your Damaged Home Efficiently.

You might be among the many homeowners that strive to do whatever they can for their properties to save money and get the job done more quickly. In situations like flooding, however, DIY restoration might not always be the right decision to make for multiple reasons.

When drying and cleaning up flood damage in Santa Rosa Beach homes and condos, many property owners are at a loss without moisture detection tools and discovery devices. Understanding the migration of penetrating water can focus professional drying tools and specialty equipment where it is needed the most.

How Can the House Get Dried as Efficiently as Possible? 

With clean water flooding situations, extraction and drying play critical roles in getting you back in the house as soon as possible. With efficient water removal tools, we can address surface water concerns before deploying air movers and dehumidifiers to begin evaporative drying of the damaged areas of the residence. We can utilize our moisture detection equipment and thermal imagery to gauge the success and progression of drying processes.

What Specialty Tools Do SERVPRO Technicians Use? 

While much of the drying that takes place in your flood-damaged home consists of our axial and centrifugal air movers or the low-grain refrigerant (LGR) and desiccant dehumidifiers, there are many situations where specialty equipment can also be a benefit. By reaching otherwise inaccessible areas or focusing exclusively on specific saturated materials and contents, our tools can help to maximize the drying efforts in the house. Some of these specialty approaches include:

  • Freeze Drying Equipment
  • Positive Pressure Systems
  • Floor Mat Drying Systems

After a flood, getting your home dried quickly is a priority. Our SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties team can help with premier equipment and effective practices. Give us a call anytime at (850) 267-0746.

What is the Fastest Way to Remove Flood Water from My Santa Rosa Beach Restaurant?

5/10/2020 (Permalink)

flooded office Flood damage can cause a small business a lot of money and time if not taken care of. Contact SERVPRO to make sure this doesn’t happen to you.

With our local roster, our SERVPRO team can reach your damaged Santa Rosa Beach business quickly after a storm loss or flood. 

When you run a restaurant in Santa Rosa Beach, the smallest of disasters can have magnified effects throughout the entire structure. Without the appropriate response to the emergency, you can find yourself unable to meet the requirements of staying open or working as efficiently as possible to get the doors back open again. Flooding can be one of the disasters that can have widespread hazardous effects, so we strive to provide immediate responses when you need it most.

After a severe weather event, you can battle both structural and flood damage for your Santa Rosa Beach restaurant. Even with clean water incidents that can occur from breaches in the roof or construction of the building, standing water presents enough of a detrimental condition that can keep you from safely serving your loyal customers. Our SERVPRO professionals must first determine how destructive of a situation that your business faces when we first arrive to help.

How Do You Stop Flooding from Getting Worse? 

Mitigation is one of the critical elements of recovering your business, and that begins as soon as our professionals arrive. In most situations where flooding has occurred, we rely on emergency services as well to gain control of a flooded area and begin returning it to its original condition. The blend of mitigation and emergency services encompasses many tasks and experienced professionals of our team, helping us to make the ultimate recovery of your Santa Rosa Beach property less expensive and faster. Some of the areas of focus after flooding include:  

  • Containment – To prevent the spread of damaging effects throughout the entire restaurant, we can establish physical barriers to prevent the migration of water. When flooding has occurred in the kitchen area, containing the damage can prevent costly damages to dining area carpet, furniture, and fixtures.
  • Structural Repairs – Our professionals can begin working to restore your business as soon as we arrive, and that includes controlled demolition and temporary construction solutions provided by our in-house licensed contractors.
  • Mitigation – There are many phases of mitigation, and the ultimate goal of each is to reduce costs, losses, and time for restoration to complete. From extraction and drying to deodorization and microbial remediation, we can help to keep the situation from getting out of control.

What Threats Should I Know About Active Flooding? 

Whether natural flooding occurs or not, there are many threats to flooding in your restaurant. Not only does this situation often force you to close your doors to customers temporarily, but several conditions make it challenging for you to remain in the damaged areas. Appreciating the severity of these conditions can help to encourage the securing of professional restoration technicians like our SERVPRO team. You should be mindful of:

  • Structural Deterioration – Without full working knowledge of water migration throughout your restaurant, structural elements could begin to deteriorate if they do not get the drying and restoration attention they need. 
  • Standing Water – Standing water alone can present slips and falls hazards, though its ultimate threat lies in how quickly exposed materials and contents can absorb it. From the tables and chairs in your dining area to the carpeting in the manager’s office, standing water can be a challenge to remove.
  • Shock – With so many industrial-grade appliances and tools that get used in the kitchen areas of your restaurant, standing and rising waters present electric shock hazards when the water levels come into contact with active currents.
  • Contamination – Natural flooding is one of the most destructive disasters, primarily because of how all of the surfaces and contents exposed must get treated as though they have become contaminated by bacteria. With many floods introducing contaminants into a workspace, this is an added obstacle in restoring your restaurant.

How Long Do Extraction and Drying Take? 

While we would love to tell each customer the precise amount of time that recovery and restoration should take in their property, this is not always possible. Many restoration tasks must delve much more deeply than superficial concerns, and addressing moisture in structural cavities or dampness of subflooring might take longer than initially anticipated. The length of a restoration project involves:

  • Size of the affected area
  • Saturation of materials and contents
  • Believed levels of contamination

It is always the priority of our restoration team to provide the most efficient and cost-effective service for our customers. We can work around the clock to get your doors back open again after a flood loss. Give our SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties team a call anytime that you need us at (850) 267-0746.

How Can SERVPRO Help You We're always open to take your call.

SERVPRO Offers Speedy Santa Rosa Water Damage Remediation Services to Prevent Lasting Damage

When you experience a water damage emergency in your Miramar Beach home from a malfunctioning washing machine, you have a big mess on your hands that needs immediate attention. The longer the water sits, the more damage is possible, including the growth of bacteria and mold.  

When situations require water removal services for your Santa Rosa property, you want to call a professional company who won’t waste time getting to you. At SERVPRO, we not only are available to help you any day, 24 hours a day, but we also have the knowledge and equipment needed to get the job done thoroughly and in a timely fashion. You can easily see why SERVPRO is the right choice for water damage remediation.   

After an event like this,  is vital for you to get professional help inside of your Santa Rosa home to combat the water damage as soon as possible. Leaving excess moisture inside of your home can cause the wooden furniture to swell and blister as it absorbs the water. Furthermore, leaving moisture unchecked can lead to the development of mold damage, which can cause health effects. When you find water damage of any kind inside of your home, acting fast is the best remedy.

If you want to hire a cleanup and remediation company that is quick, effective, and customer-friendly, you need the experts at SERVPRO. We pride ourselves on our excellently trained IICRC-certified techs as well as our quick response time. At SERVPRO, we firmly believe in providing not just a remediation, but a service that leaves you feeling good about leaving your home in our hands.

Our Mitigation Process

The first method to remove moisture from your structure is to extract any standing water. We utilize various tools to remove water from flooring. SERVPRO staff use extractors to remove water from floors. Most have three major components which include a heater, pump, and vacuum system. When carpeting and upholstery are affected, all three components are in use. For water damage mitigation, we use just the vacuum.  

We also have the use of truck-mounted or portable extractors. We can carry the portable device into your home, and it allows us to access area which is restricted. Extractors which are truck mounted have the same components, but are more powerful and have power sources of their own. They are designed to be efficient for water removal and restorative cleaning.  

The industry rates the strength of a pump in terms of volume and lift capacity. If the standing water is over two inches deep, we use a submersible pump with adequate volume and lift capacities. Water is pumped directly into a treated sewer, such as a toilet. We cannot use a pump with water contaminated with solid materials.  

SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties can be counted on to clean up your home in Crestview, Inlet Beach, or Alys Beach after a water damage emergency. Just reach out to us by dialing (850) 267-0746, and we can help you get your home back to the way it was.

What Are Common Post Fire Damage Mistakes That Miramar Beach Homeowners Should Avoid?

5/5/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Partners with You to Make Your Home Habitable After Fire Damage

Structural damage caused by fire usually leaves a homeowner with two options. The first option is for relocating those living in the property to temporary housing while restoration takes place. This option is for scenarios where the structure itself is severely impaired, or the structure is no longer safe to inhabit. The second option is to remain in the property while restoration is carried out.

When fire damage in Miramar Beach properties occurs, it is necessary to use emergency restoration services. Everybody feels a strong attachment to their home, so it is only natural to attempt to clean or restore the property yourself. In some cases, self-restoration efforts can cause more harm than good.

SERVPRO is a nationally recognized organization that trained in emergency restoration after the fire. If it is safe for you to remain in the property our technicians can begin work restoring livable areas. Doing so involves cordoning off the areas of severe damage and clearing smoke, soot, and residue that may have traveled into hallways, carpets, and garments.

We can restore to habitable condition using wet and dry cleaning methods. Dry cleaning is suitable for ceilings or walls and may be completed before wet cleaning. Wet cleaning can be carried out on painted, wooden or metal ceilings. SERVPRO has also developed specialized peroxide active cleaning methods for porous or acoustical ceilings.

Contents damaged during the fire can be professionally cleaned and restored by our team. We do this by moving items to unaffected areas of the house where there is no risk of further contamination. Using a combination of sanitizers, foams and dry scrubbing we can salvage your contents as well as areas of your structure.

The goal of our work is to mitigate the loss by removing any elements that could end up causing further damage. At SERVPRO we also look to improve indoor air quality by using foggers or air-scrubbers. Our work is carried out to ensure that your home is habitable during the restoration of more severely damaged areas.

Dealing with the damage left behind after fire is very stressful. Call SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties at (850) 267-0746 for an emergency restoration provider that cares as much about your home as you do.

How SERVPRO Certified Teams Restore Your Watercolor Home After A Fire

4/30/2020 (Permalink)

Fire Damaged Home in Watercolor, Florida Our certified experts will restore your home after fire and smoke damage, call SERVPRO first.

Stress–Free Emergency Services to Attend to Fire Damage Incidents

Burning is only one way homes in the Watercolor area become damaged during a fire. Other things happen during a blaze that add to the ruination of a dwelling. SERVPRO can help get everything cleaned up and made “Like it never even happened,” again.

As the fire inside your home burns, smoke travels to all corners of your home, and while the majority of the smoke follows the path of least resistance, smoke also fills every corner and area in your home. As it travels, this smoke adheres to heated walls, especially above windows and doors, as well as around any ventilation holes made by the fire department.

Without quick cleaning away of the soot particles stuck to these areas, staining becomes permanent. Repainting requires scraping away of the paint or heavy application of sealers and primers. We use cleaning agents that remove the soot and leaves the area free of grime and eliminating the stain. The sooner we begin, the easier it is for us to achieve the results you want.

The water used by the fire department acts a lot like the smoke as soon as it turns to steam. Steam can also carry particles from burning items inside your home and once in contact with surfaces, these substances make a stain. These stains permeate deeper than those caused by smoke and may require additional work to get your home looking nice again. We need to dry these areas in addition to cleaning them. An early start can allow us enough time to save these areas from swelling, which requires the installation of new, unmarred materials.

SERVPRO's IICRC-certified employees work together in teams to ensure complete mitigation of fire damage throughout your entire home. After a fire, it is equally vital that we restore dry conditions as it is to remove burned items and remove the soot that clings to surfaces. We also pay close attention to the odors that now plague your home, and discuss with you the different methods we can use to make things smell like they should again.  

Fire Damage Restoration

The goal of fire damage restoration services is to prevent further damage and restore the customer's property using appropriate methods and equipment. The surfaces or items exposed to the soot have varied needs which force us to use several cleaning techniques. Before choosing a cleaning method, we have to determine whether the method can affect the surface or material in any manner. That means we cannot choose an aggressive cleaning method when it is likely to leave unwanted scratches on your Watercolors property.  

We categorize the smoke residues that a fire damage incident leaves on your Watercolors property as light, medium, or heavy. To clean non-oily light/medium residues, our SERVPRO technicians use dry cleaning procedures. Such methods are appropriate for removing surface dust. We do this by vacuuming and slightly wiping or brushing surfaces with the help of feather dusters.  

Wet cleaning procedures can remove moderate and heavy some fire and soot residues. We first pretest the area with the residues and determine the best cleaning agent to use. During the process, we saturate the surface with a cleaning agent and to loosen its bond with the particles and then wipe or wash away the detached residues. Spray and wipe is an example of a cleaning process where our SERVPRO technicians control the quantity of the cleaning product that we apply on surfaces.  

When the bond between the surfaces and the residues is so strong, we may opt to use an abrasive cleaning method. When using this cleaning method, our SERVPRO technicians apply a cleaning product on the surface and then use an abrasive material such as steel wool to scrub the area. The cleaning product should be in sufficient amounts to lubricate the surface and prevent scratching. We can also use this method when it is necessary to repaint surfaces once cleaning is complete.

SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties has professional restoration and cleaning solutions to attend to both residential and commercial needs. We have the equipment, resources, and training to restore your property to its earlier state. Call us at (850) 267-0746 at any time of the day when you need proven emergency solutions.

Do You Know These Little Known Flood Damage Signs?

4/27/2020 (Permalink)

Flood Damaged Home in Walton County Knowing you have the right team to help you face them can make flood damage restoration less overwhelming.

SERVPRO Technicians Are Trained to Spot Flood Damage in All Aspects of your Walton County Residence

When people think of flooding in their Walton County home, they often fixate on the pressing high volume of water inside. What often does not get thought of until some of this water starts getting extracted and dried up is the dirt, mud, debris and even contaminants that have now entered your home through the rising floodwaters that penetrated openings in your house.

While flood damages commonly get perceived as the oversaturated building materials and irreparable damage to contents of your Walton County residence, this is far and away from the full extent of the trouble this disaster can leave you facing. Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to overcome all of the issues and effects from this intrusive water, and bring your home back to preloss conditions as quickly as possible.

One of the first things that people tend to discover when rivers, creeks and other bodies of water overflow are the amount of mud pulled into their homes. Once much of the water has gotten removed, affected areas of your home not only require extensive drying efforts but thorough cleaning as well to remove this unsightly effect.

Another commonly attributed effect of flood damages to your home is debris. This occurrence is especially true if a more extensive area has gotten flooded simultaneously. Water moves throughout residences and continues whatever path of least resistance exists, depositing all manner of items and belongings from other places into your home along with the high volume of water.

Depending on the source of the flood waters, you could be contending with a slew of potential contaminants and bacteria as well. Blockages in sewer lines on account of the flooding can allow for sewage or gray water to join in with the volume moving into your house. This threat can best get determined by our SERVPRO estimator and project manager assigned to your home.

Rapid Response To Flood Damage

Storm damage is something that Walton County homeowners are all too familiar with, especially now that the weather is starting to turn back towards the rainier season. With an unexpected fierce storm, a variety of damage can occur to the exterior of your home. One of these typical issues is damage to your roof and its shingles. Penetration in this essential component to your house can spell much more significant problems than a repair bill, however.

With a hole or gash in the roof of your home from a fallen tree or just the fierceness of the storm itself, can allow for untold volumes of precipitation to enter into your home unabated. Soon, you are contending with flood damage originating in the attic of your Walton County residence. Once you notice there is a concern like this, it is critical to contact restoration specialists immediately. Doing so can help you to limit the reach of this floodwater and get it removed from your home more quickly.

Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly to a call that you make any time of the day. Our crew of professionals is always standing by to help you overcome an emergency like this, and we have the advanced equipment and expertise to help you bring your home back to its original conditions.

One of the initial steps in preventing the situation from getting worse by boarding up or tarping over the areas that allow the water into your home right now. Once this step is complete, we can get to work on water extraction and assessing the full reach of the present damage to ensure that everything gets dried thoroughly. Drying your home is critical to prevent further structural weakness and eliminate the possibility of mold growth.

Flood damages can appear in a multitude of ways, but knowing the right team to help you face them can make it less overwhelming. Give our SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties team of qualified specialists a call today at (850) 267-0746.

Why You Shouldn't Overlook Mold in Your Miramar Beach Commercial Property

4/22/2020 (Permalink)

Mold Damage in Miramar Beach Business Damp and humid conditions create a breeding ground for mold. Call SERVPRO to eliminate mold at its source.

Commercial Mold Damage Gets Worse Over Time. Call SERVPRO to Avoid Possible Irreversible Damage.

Keeping an eye on your commercial property is an often overlooked aspect of business ownership. With hundreds of things to look out for (revenues, profits, staff, and customers) it is easy for general wear and tears to become problematic. None more so than with mold which tends to appear and rapidly proliferate in a small-time; often unnoticed except for that tell-tale musty odor.

It can be tempting to avoid dealing with commercial mold damage in Miramar, especially in the city's older properties. However, hoping it goes away by itself is wishful thinking. SERVPRO is a fully licensed commercial restorer with IIRC certified technicians in odor control and mold assessment & remediation. We have years of experience dealing in small and large-scale commercial property restoration with the resources to get the job done effectively.

Mold grows when otherwise negligible mold spores come into contact with damp spots. In a moist, humid environment these spores grow into fungi, producing an unpleasant odor and becoming an eye-sore. The first step SERVPRO takes on arrival is to locate the source of moisture and shut it off. Failure to do so makes any remediation meaningless due to the high likelihood of mold returning after work is complete.

An effective removal method for mold is intense agitation using chemical and water-based cleaners. Without proper preparation, agitation can cause mold spores to spread into otherwise unaffected areas of your property. We cordon off areas using physical barriers or negative air pressure to prevent that from happening.

Odor control technicians are trained to deal with commercial properties of all shapes and sizes. Usually, SERVPRO employs water-based foggers to clear your indoor air quality and restore your business. In more severe cases we may bring in chemical foggers that neutralize odor or Ozone generators.

Our technicians are extensively trained to combat mold growth and can get your business back on track sooner than you might think. Call SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties at (850) 267-0746 now.
