SERVPRO Can Handle all of Your Coral Springs Emergency Restoration Needs

We are becoming one of the premier restoration teams in all of South Florida because of our prompt response and expertise in a crisis. Our Coral Springs customers have seen the destruction that the storm systems reaching our coastline can do. The destruction from storms is when experience matters the most. We have many field technicians and upper management that have devoted years to helping our SERVPRO team grow and excel. Our success gets linked to our commitment to customer satisfaction and is the same belief that has our team following up with every client to ensure they are happy with the results.  

Fire Damage Restoration

Fires can be a destructive force for Coral Springs homes. With firefighting efforts and the spread of damaging effects throughout a property, many owners can find themselves ill-equipped to handle the disaster. Our SERVPRO professionals have accreditations through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in both fire restoration and odor control. So our team has gotten sufficiently prepared for nearly any obstacle we could encounter in the recovery of your home.  

Because of the area of the country, many structure fires can leave wet smoke residues behind. These emergencies have a slower burning rate from a lower temperature, so the fire smolders and leaves substantial particulates caked to surfaces throughout the affected areas. We have premier cleaning products and utensils to ensure that we provide every Coral Springs home or business the same level of care and consideration to return structures to pre-fire conditions. 

We are part of a large loss recovery team, which has helped us to become a trusted name for residential and commercial customers alike. Fire damage to Coral Springs properties can sometimes require more resources and personnel than initially believed. We have boosted our inventory and partnered with other branches to ensure that homes and businesses get the immediate response they need exactly when it is needed. 

Mold Remediation

Mold remediation is not something that many homeowners can successfully handle on their own, and so they seek the restoration services of our SERVPRO team instead. We have an entire division of qualified personnel with IICRC certifications as Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT.) This training and experience in the field have helped our team to provide fast and confident responses to Coral Springs homes that believe they might have mold growth. 

One of the areas where our professionals have set ourselves apart in the restoration and remediation niches is with servicing marine vehicles and yachts. With constant threats of water damage and lingering moisture on these vessels, we have developed sound strategies to remove mold colonies without damaging structural materials. Soda blasting can help to remove mold colonies in both Coral Springs homes and marine vehicles alike without damaging the hosting material.  

Because deodorization can often be a challenging task after mold damage in Coral Springs homes, we have full-service contractors that can oversee controlled demolition of damaged drywall and other materials that can amplify musty odors. Our licensed contractors (#MRSR2994) have years of experience and can help to remove compromised construction materials, debris, and work with our customers on their exact wishes for reconstruction afterward.  

Water Damage Restoration

Many of our longest-standing employees of our SERVPRO team belong to our water restoration division. With so many of our service calls being water recovery, we encourage a large portion of our technicians to obtain certifications through the IICRC in Water Restoration (WRT) and Applied Structural Drying (ASD.) We want to ensure that no matter what emergency threatens your Coral Springs home, we have the personnel ready to mobilize at the first sign of an incident.  

We strive to provide our customers with a comprehensive experience when it comes to the damage that water loss incidents can create. We know that structural concerns can often go hand in hand with substantial losses, so we have a team of contracting specialists ready to help with debris removal, controlled demolition, and full-scale build back for Coral Springs homes. These efforts follow other mitigation tasks to eliminate standing water and saturation.  

We invest in the premier extraction and drying equipment needed to make the most efficient restoration approach for water damage in Coral Springs residences. We have multiple extractors that we can choose from, including sump pumps and wet-vacs, as well as hundreds of high-velocity air movers to help reduce moisture quickly.  

Storm Damage Restoration

Storms are some of the most detrimental circumstances to affect Coral Springs communities and the other areas of South Florida that we service. With robust storm systems that slam the coast, we have to stay prepared for any destruction and flooding that could result. As a Large Loss Recovery unit, we have the resources and personnel to handle considerable destruction to our communities, and travel whenever needed throughout the state, other areas of the country, and even as far as the Caribbean to help those in need.  

As a storm relief specialist for the entire state, we have to have real-time solutions for damaged homes and businesses throughout Coral Springs and the surrounding areas. We have a team of licensed contractors able to help with emergency construction solutions like tarping and boarding, but those that can also work alongside recovery technicians to better approach damaging circumstances like widespread flooding.  

Floods are a typical result of substantial storm damage to Coral Springs homes, and part of the restoration services that our SERVPRO team offers focuses on addressing these concerns with fast extraction methods and rapid drying solutions. We have positive pressure systems to dry our structural cavities as well, such as our Injecti-Dry System. With our sophisticated equipment and expertise, we can make flood loss and storm damage “Like it never even happened.”  

We know that you have multiple choices in restoration services throughout South Florida. Still, our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team has the experience and the advanced equipment to help you 24/7. We prioritize our customers and help to give them expectations exceeding service with every job that we do and follow through to ensure that it is right. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and we can show you when you call (954) 973-4130.

Is Fire Damage Cooking in Your West Coral Springs Kitchen?

10/7/2019 (Permalink)

Kitchen fire. Stove burning; fire spreading. When your home experiences a fire, call SERVPRO! We have the knowledge to restore your home quickly.

Extra Problems After Fire Damage in Coral Springs Kitchen 

Even a small size kitchen fire leaves several issues, including fire damage, water damage, foul odors, and there is the threat of mold growth. The cleanup needs to begin quickly, or soot has the potential to spread throughout the home.  

Eliminating the chances of cross-contamination is one of the first actions SERVPRO technicians take against fire damage in Coral Springs homes. The containment may be simple barriers with thick plastic sheeting or negative air chambers, depending on the amount of damage and potential for foot traffic to spread soot.  

Mold is a Threat After Fire Loss

SERVPRO technicians know that mold spores can germinate within 24 hours when ambient moisture levels are above 50% humidity, and temperatures average over 70F-degrees. They hold mold remediation certification #MRSR2994 and know the early warning signs of infestations. Proactive treatments involve complete water extraction and the rapid lowering of indoor air moisture levels through the use of air movers and dehumidifiers in tandem. Antimicrobial cleaning solutions work to inhibit mold as an issue.  

Controlled Demolition is Often Necessary

As long as charred building materials and contents remain in the home, the danger of spreading soot remains. The cutting away and removal of burned items works to lower odors.  

Readying the Property for Reconstruction

After the removal of the fire loss items from the house, the techs prep the home for reconstruction. Some painted walls have the potential for cleaning, however dependent on the heat of the fire, the possibility of deeply embedded soot in the paint remains. In those cases, the application of a sealant provides an odor-free surface that only requires repainting. 

Inspection of Ductwork

If the HVAC system ran any time after the fire, there is a likelihood of soot within the ductwork. After the cleanup of fire loss in the home, they inspect and clean the ductwork as needed. 

Fire damage needs fast action. Contact SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland at (954) 973-4130; the technicians are available 24/7 to make the fire loss in your home, "Like it never even happened."

Professional Water Removal Overview for Your Coral Springs Residence

We know what it takes to get the job done for your Coral Springs water damage.

When your Coral Springs home faces exposure to significant water incursion, you need to arrange for the fast and thorough evacuation of the fluids. Water is a surprisingly corrosive substance, capable of causing substantial damage to both structural components and the contents of your dwelling in a matter of hours. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained managers and technicians bring the requisite knowledge, experience, and equipment to mitigate and remediate the water damage.  

Damage Assessment and Project Planning

A seasoned project manager evaluates the damage and develops a plan for rapid water removal in your Coral Springs dwelling. We visually inspect the affected area and also use specialized devices to help trace the migration of water from the initial loss site. Water can percolate through several layers of flooring and seep into cavities behind walls, below floors, and above ceilings. Instruments like thermal imaging cameras and moisture detectors help us locate trapped water and determine the spread of moisture absorbed into building materials and fixtures.

We Prepare to Avoid Work Delays

Once we assess the site, our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) can begin water removal immediately because we stock all needed equipment on our signature green vehicles. Submersible pumps carry water deeper than two inches away while wanded, truck-mounted extractors and squeegees suction fluids off surfaces and from floor coverings. SERVPRO knows the more liquid we extract, the more efficient structural drying strategies can be. 

Do Not Fear Controlled Demolition 

To gain access to hidden water and damp building, cavities SERVPRO uses techniques like weep holes and flood cuts. Careful punching of drainage holes releases water in ceilings or behind bubbling paint. We often choose to cut soaked drywall several inches above the water line to remove it for more thorough extraction and to permit warm, moving air to begin the structural drying process. After the water removal and drying, we arrange for repair, replacement, and rebuilding of structures partially removed or damaged.

Water Removal Includes the Drying Protocol

Excess moisture provides a perfect growing environment for mold, so SERVPRO must bring structural and ambient moisture levels to normal. Our Applied Structural Drying (ASD) crew positions commercial air movers and adjust temperatures to move water from building materials to the air as vapor. HIgh-efficiency dehumidifiers capture and condense or absorb the vapor for disposal.

SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland offers a highly-qualified team of water removal experts to members of our community. Call (954) 973-4130 for an assessment, water removal plan, and implementation 24/7.

Mold Remediation After Water Loss in Parkland Homes

Lingering effects from a water loss incident can often lead to worsening conditions for Parkland properties. As much as many homeowners can discredit the hazard of mold growth in their home as a minor inconvenience, there are two specific reasons why you want to address this threat as quickly as possible. Our professionals have extensive training in mold remediation, becoming accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT), Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) and in Applied Structural Drying (ASD.)

This training has helped our team to address both the causes and the effects of mold damage in Parkland homes, and our success in this area can get attributed to our commitment to a fast response and cutting-edge equipment. We want to exceed the expectations of our customers by providing them faster service than they expected with more than merely satisfactory results. We are not happy unless you are.

Mold growth can develop in as little as 48 hours under the appropriate conditions. Spores exist in nearly every environment we encounter, leaving no area of your home safe from this possibility. Lingering moisture from a water loss can provide the level of dampness necessary to facilitate colonization. Without immediate action, the organism spreads quickly to susceptible materials, degrading and eroding their composition as the colony grows.

Our SERVPRO team has efficient approaches to remove colonies from your home while protecting the installed structural elements when possible. Also, we have real-time solutions for the musty odors, air quality concerns, and other threats that colonization could present.

As much as our professionals have a restore before replacing mentality, this is not always possible. We often get to these mold damage situations long after they have started, and the only solution left is controlled demolition. We have a team of licensed contractors (MRSR2994) that can help to make this process efficient with drywall removal and flooring repairs. Once the mold colonies have gotten eliminated from the house, our team can help to make it “Like it never even happened.”

It is not uncommon for lingering water and flood loss effects to generate mold colonies, and you need professionals that can help. Our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland remediators have experience and training to make short work of microbial threats in your house. Give us a call anytime at (954) 973-4130.

Professional Water Damage Cleanup is a Must for a Coral Springs Businesses

9/10/2019 (Permalink)

Mold and water spots on the ceiling of a building. Our SERVPRO technicians know what to do for your Coral Springs water damage.

Your Coral Springs business needs our technicians for water damage.

Many Coral Springs businesses lean on their in-house cleaning staff to manage water losses. Since the personnel is already in place, it seems sensible to shift to them the burden of cleanup. This strategy often results in unintended consequences, including a failure to remove the water entirely and quickly enough to avoid secondary damage because of their limited training and experience in water mitigation and remediation. Mold growth and progressive damage to structural components and contents are potential outcomes.

Water Removal and Structural Drying Have Specific Protocols

When water damages your Coral Springs office building after a plumbing leak, experts with rigorous training in the science of its thorough removal and efficient drying must respond. Our crew members master a comprehensive course developed by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and have extensive on the job experience before arriving to help at your site. Our investment in state of the art water removal and structural drying equipment supports our team’s efforts to your benefit.

Advanced Tools and Techniques Monitor Water Migration

If the water in your office suite remained in a contained space cleanup would be more straightforward and limited to water your eyes see. Instead, water migrates, spreading even after the source is discovered and shut down. During SERVPRO’s initial assessment of the water damage, our technicians use infrared cameras to locate water that seeped into and is now trapped in building cavities. We employ sensitive moisture detectors and hygrometers to help us plot a map of the full extent of moisture saturation. 

Our Scalable Workforce Supports Speed

Commercial water damage remediation is a challenge because of the large spaces affected. SERVPRO has access to scalable resources to manage substantial water damage swiftly. If moisture lingers in your office space longer than 24 to 48 hours, mold grows, and building materials crumble, rust, and warp. We can deploy multiple crews and sufficient equipment to attend to your specific needs quickly and thoroughly.

SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland is always preparing for significant commercial losses, unfazed by the square footage involved or severity of the damage. Call us at (954) 973-4130. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Our Technicians Discuss Problems To Expect After A Flood In Your Coral Springs Home

8/29/2019 (Permalink)

A room damaged by a flood, showing the water line and the sediment Flooding can cause a myriad of problems in your property.

Problems To Expect After Flood Damage In Your Coral Springs Property

Among the different types of losses that can affect your property, flooding is the hardest to control since, in most cases, such an incident results from a severe weather event affecting broad areas.  When flooding affects your Coral Springs property, it is good to be prepared to deal with a wide range of problems. Being prepared can help you cope with the loss and ensure you work smoothly with the professionals you hire.

Throwing Valuables Away
One problem you should expect after flood damage in your Coral Springs property is the need to dispose of items that you might believe to be in perfect physical condition. Cases involving groundwater are the worst because such water contains chemicals and biohazards among other contaminants. You have to throw away carpets, pad, upholstery items, and other contents exposed to the contaminants. Our SERVPRO technicians can help clean high valued rugs and collectibles.

Water in Concealed Areas
As the floodwater flows unhindered through your property, some of it might reach concealed areas.  Drying such areas is a challenge, and leaving the water untouched can lead to severe problems such as mold infestations. Common areas that can present this challenge include wall cavities, subfloors, and walls concealed by cabinets, among others. Removing such water might require demolition or use of specialized equipment. Our SERVPRO technicians can use Injectidry systems and drying mats to remove water from concealed areas. We handle any necessary demolition, whether it is making flood cuts or punching vent holes. We also rebuild and refinish the affected areas eliminating traces of the damage “Like it never even happened.”

Damaged Electronics and Electrical Systems
If the water rises to higher levels, it can reach electrical outlets. In other cases, such as when strong winds tear-off part of the roof, the water may flow into the house from an elevated point, thus affecting electrical systems and electronic items. Water damage in electronics might not be visible, so you should not operate any electronic item before they are checked by a professional.

Flooding can cause a myriad of problems in your property. Call SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland to help you fix them. You can reach us any time at (954) 973-4130.

Cleaning Soot from Coral Springs Kitchen Countertops

8/18/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO can help you get that soot out of your Coral Springs kitchen so you can get back to cooking.

Let us get that soot out of your Coral Springs kitchen.

Soot and smoke residues can be among the most challenging symptoms to overcome after a fire occurs in Coral Springs homes. Even with some experience in fire recovery and soot removal, many homeowners lack the advanced training and cutting-edge equipment available to our restoration specialists to protect your property and possessions better. Approaching the cleaning of surfaces like countertops can be especially risky without the right technique and equipment, which can often lead to staining and smearing that can become impossible to remedy.

Kitchen flare-ups can be a conventional catalyst to fire damage in Coral Springs homes, and they can often keep the conditions and effects concentrated in this highly trafficked area of your house. Our SERVPRO professionals must assess the scope of the damage with our initial arrival, working quickly to determine how severe the situation is and the best approaches to restore individual symptoms. Soot and smoke residue removal is a scenario our experienced professionals get trained to handle, and we arrive with a full array of cleaning products, tools, and machines to efficiently manage the situation.

We have several approaches for eliminating the presence of soot residues on countertops, and this usually begins with vacuuming loose particulates from the surface with a high-powered vacuum. Our SERVPRO team can then utilize chemical sponges, either wet or dry depending on the situation, in deliberate and skilled swipes to eliminate soot on the surface.

For more challenging materials, our technicians can implement machines for abrasive cleaning techniques like media and soda blasting. These approaches can fully eradicate the presence of soot, but do not damage the substrate in the process. This process is the same used to eliminate mold colonies and protect hosting materials in homes and businesses.

Particular countertops get made of premium materials that can be very costly to replace. Our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland professionals have the right equipment and expertise to address these effects wherever they get found, and make the fire loss event “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (954) 973-4130.

Our Technicians Discuss The Principles Of Water Damage Restoration In Coral Springs

Call us at (954) 973-4130 to begin the process as soon as possible for the best outcome.

Principles Of Water Damage Restoration In Coral Springs

When your Coral Springs home suffers a water loss the cause is not as important as the response. Dramatic events like storms or floods are far less likely than a leaky pipe or a malfunctioning household appliance. No matter the route water took to get into your home, we systematically work to remove it and dry out the wet structural components. Following industry best practices developed by the international standard-setting Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) ensures success.

Expect our crew leader to perform an individualized assessment of the water damage done in your Coral Springs home. We pride ourselves on a thorough evaluation of your scenario and adapt our response to the particular circumstances of your emergency. Our IICRC-trained technicians carefully consider not only the water we see but also the moisture that migrated away from the initially affected area.

SERVPRO service vehicles stock multiple submersible pumps, wanded extractors, air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to accomplish water removal and structural drying. We also have moisture meters and thermal imaging devices to assist as we map out the accurate dimensions of the water infiltration in your home.

We remove standing water, both visible and hidden, with pumps or extractors. If needed, we perform controlled demolition such as flood cuts or drilled holes to access trapped water and to enhance the effect of our drying equipment in confined spaces. Only when the SERVPRO crew is satisfied that no liquid water remains do we switch the focus to Applied Structural Drying (ASD).

This discipline shortens drying times and makes it much less likely that progressive deterioration and secondary damage such as mold damage occurs. Our ASD-certified technicians deploy air movers, dehumidifiers, and other drying equipment as intended per your personalized drying plan. We monitor moisture and temperature using sensitive devices, controlling the relative humidity RH and specific humidity (SH) to create an optimal environment for efficient drying.

Depend on SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland to manage your water damage emergency professionally. Call us at  (954) 973-4130 to begin the process as soon as possible for the best outcome.
