Our Fast Response for Water Removal and Cleanup Can Resolve Flood Damage in Coral Springs

Flood damage is more common in the area than many think. We have a fast storm damage response team to begin vital water removal services and other mitigation tasks to help.

Is Attic Flood Damage Common for Coral Springs?

When you consider how common flood damage in Coral Springs has become, it is not unlikely that many of these homes suffer some degree of flood damage to their attic spaces as well. Many homeowners do not recognize a problem in the attic until it reaches lower levels of the house where the living spaces exist. Because severe weather events can happen frequently, shingled roofs can be at risk for high winds, hail, torrential rainfall, and flying debris for vulnerabilities that allow water penetration.

How Do Water Removal Services Work on This Upper Floor?

Removing standing water in the attic space might be challenging, especially when this is an unfinished area of your home. Several extraction devices in our inventory can help remove clean flood water where it penetrates vulnerabilities in the roof or siding in the house. In many situations, high-pressure extractors are the ideal solution with the necessary head to discharge standing water from this area of the home to the appropriate drain out point. Wet vacuums can also be suitable because of their mobility and versatility in smaller spaces.

What Flood Damage Cleanup Practices Should Take Place?

If you have an unfinished attic, many exposed building materials like wood framing and insulation can become targets for spreading contaminants and other debris. Cleaning up after water penetration into the attic space of your home can require careful planning and execution, especially when flooring might be incomplete or inadequate to support equipment or several of our team members. We determine what the property needs and the best way to provide this service efficiently.

When restoring your fire-damaged home, you must decide how to deal with soiled walls, ceilings, and other surfaces. Cleaning or repainting are two standard solutions. Even when you opt to repaint the affected surfaces, some level of cleaning is necessary.

SERVPRO Chooses the Right Products to Handle Rust Stains During Water Cleanup

Rust development can be a significant issue after water intrusion incidents. It primarily affects upholstery, carpets, draperies, and other fabrics close to metallic parts such as zippers, buttons, curtain rods, or furniture legs.

After rust develops, the right approach is necessary when performing water cleanup in Parkland properties to guarantee effective removal. Removing rust from fabrics is challenging because it requires the appropriate chemical agents to neutralize the rust. The chosen cleaning agent must also match the type of material to avoid setting stains. SERVPRO technicians rely on their advanced training and experience in managing:

  • Burst pipes
  • Ceiling leaks
  • Flood restoration

One of the reliable solutions we use to manage rust stains is Rusticide, an oxalic-phosphoric compound. It works well on various materials, including wool, silk, cotton, linen, carpeting, and synthetic fibers.

Our SERVPRO technicians also help ensure the proper application of the solution. Spraying the solution directly to the rust stain and agitating the area with a bone scraper helps. For older stains, applying steam over the affected area after applying the Rusticide helps.

Adhering to EPA Mold Remediation is Why SERVPRO Delivers Results

Finding mold in your Coral Springs home can be a problematic experience. You might feel embarrassed because you think the microbial outbreak is a commentary on your housekeeping. Or you could be fearful of health effects because someone in your household has an allergy or susceptibility to irritation when mold is present. Trying to cope with a mold outbreak without training, experience, and equipment can make the situation worse.

What Process Does SERVPRO Do When Responding to a Mold Concern?

Coral Springs mold removal tactics that deliver the best results use research-based protocols. SERVPRO follows the EPA recommendations, the mold remediation industry's standard. Remediation is the EPA's term, as the complete elimination of mold and spores is impossible. We remove active mold growth and institute mold-inhibition interventions as follows:

  • Locate the mold (only testing if indicated as it is usually apparent where the mold grows)
  • Contain the affected area with 1.6 polyethylene and often the use of negative pressure, HEPA-filtered air scrubber
  • Remove the mold colonies with scrapers, brushes, and blasting of porous materials with soda or dry ice (blasting removes surface growth and incapacitates embedded hyphae)
  • Clean surfaces of moldy debris with HEPA-filtered vacuums
  • Bag moldy materials and dispose of according to local regulation as hazardous waste
  • Apply EPA-registered antimicrobials by broadcast or surface spraying
  • Arranging for the elimination of the moisture source that feeds the mold spores
