Fire Damage to Structures, Contents, and Odors Leaving Your Coral Springs Home in a Disarray? SERVPRO Provides Professional Services for Fire Losses
Dealing with the Challenges of Fire Damage Mitigation in Coral Springs Homes
Fire damage can leave you feeling overwhelmed as you try to deal with insurance while taking care of your family. Thankfully, the fire damage restoration experts at SERVPRO can help. We have the training and high-tech equipment to overcome the challenges that a fire loss presents. Depending on what caused the fire, the nature of the materials burned, and the extent of combustion, different residues and contaminants can be released throughout your home and get absorbed into its porous contents.
The contaminant residues in your fire damaged Coral Springs home may include char, soot, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and ash. A quick response is the key to preventing additional damage to your property and restoring it to its original condition. There are challenges involved in restoring a fire-damaged home, but our technicians can deal with them effectively.
The smoke produced during the fire incident can get in your infrastructure, plumbing, and walls. Smoke turns into soot that can cause discoloration of affected surfaces. Smoke can leave unpleasant odors in your property. Our highly trained technicians can identify different smoke scents. We can use the right cleaning solutions to remove the smells. We can use water-based odor counteractants to remove the odors. Our team can add the odor counteract to cleaning solutions to control smoke odors. Water-based deodorizers work at various pH extremes and temperatures to neutralize a majority of malodors, replacing them with a pleasant scent.
Firefighters may have pumped out a lot of water to put out the fire in your property. Although the water helped save your residence, it could have damaged different strictures and contents in your house. Mold grows quickly and has the potential to cause an unhealthy environment. Our team can remove any standing water using pumps or wet/dry vacuum cleaners. We can also use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home completely.
Choosing the right cleaning products
Our intensive fire damage restoration training enables us to select the correct cleaning products such as water-based or non-water based cleaners (dry or petroleum-based) for different surfaces. For instance, when washing plaster walls, we avoid using water-based cleaners because they are not sufficient. Similarly, when cleaning chrome fittings, glazed surfaces, and porcelain finishes, we avoid using abrasive cleaners because they can cause these surfaces to become dull. To determine the right cleaning products and processes, we identify the residues produced during the fire and then restore the affected surfaces properly. Pre-testing surfaces and fibers are crucial to successfully remove soiling without damaging the material.
Encapsulation of scents
Some scorched surfaces of your home could be inaccessible. We know that odors can remain on such surfaces even after we have used other deodorization procedures. To deal with such odors, it is necessary to seal the surfaces. Our SERVPRO crew can seal them off using chemical sealers to encapsulate the odors.
SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland has expertise in fire damage mitigation and can handle your fire loss to make it “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (954) 973-4130 for immediate help.

Should I Really Restore my Own Home In Coral Springs After Water Damage?
Whether you're a homeowner or a renter, it is up to you to keep up your home. To this end, you probably take great care in changing your A/C filter periodically, making sure your landscaping is not overgrown and repairing any broken appliances. However, even the most diligent of homeowners are vulnerable to a broken pipe in a bathroom or kitchen. Just a bit of bad luck is enough to allow water to cover your floors and soak into your cabinets, leaving you in need of a professional service capable of restoring the water damage. As much as you would like to attempt the repair yourself, by doing so, you could be exacerbating the need for future repairs, which is why it is best to call an experienced team.
If this story of water damage applies to your Coral Springs home, you are not alone. SERVPRO is available 24/7 to become your greatest ally in eliminating all trace of water from your bathroom or kitchen. Contact us and let our team get to work. Until we arrive, you can assist the water removal process by soaking up as much water as you can with towels as well as promoting air circulation in the affected area. Once we are at your home, we can support your efforts with industry-grade air movers and extractors that help speed up the process.
The expertise of our SERVPRO water restoration technicians (WRT) guides them to look into hard to reach places to evaluate the damage. For example, the back of a kitchen or bathroom cabinet may show excess moisture even when the rest of the area looks like it is already dry. To dry behind the cabinet, we may carefully remove the toe kick and drill small holes into it to allow the passage of air underneath the cabinet. The toe kick itself may receive treatment to prevent the growth of bacteria before being put back on and subsequently covered with the original molding. Most people outside the industry don't know enough about drying to attempt this restoration step, but at SERVPRO, it is part of our routine assessment.
SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland is your resource regardless of the size of your water damage. Our main goal is to minimize the impact of the leak now and in the future, and our expertise allows us to succeed. Call us at (954) 973-4130 and let us leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”

Fast Extraction for Your Coral Springs New Construction Project
New construction projects for plaza businesses happen in phases, and once water services get connected to the new Coral Springs structure, it begins being susceptible to damages. Among the biggest conceivable threats to new construction projects are the individuals that want to sabotage construction progress or cause property damage by sneaking on to the job site after hours. Turning on faucets and valves can flood areas of the new building.
As you might expect, one of the priorities after the discovery of this damage is to secure water removal for the Coral Springs job site as quickly as you can. The first 48 hours after a water loss incident are the most critical, as the right response and drying of the damage can reduce the likelihood of microbial threats, structural deterioration, or the need for controlled demolition and build back of the already newly installed materials.
Depending on the severity of the water damage, our SERVPRO team has multiple options for extraction. With several inches or even feet of standing clean water, the use of portable sump pumps, trash pumps, and even our truck-mount extractors can all help with continual and high-efficiency removals. Our fast extraction of the standing water can lead to our light wand usage for the final touches on water removal, and ultimately rapid drying efforts.
We have a licensed team of commercial contractors (#CBC1261730) that can help with the removal of overly saturated plywood, drywall, and wood framing. While you might already have a construction team on-site for build back and continued development of the property, our professionals can help as needed and also install temporary fencing in areas where it is lacking to discourage intruders from making their way onto the job site again in the future.
Because of how an incident like this can set back your deadlines, our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team can work around the clock to get you back on schedule. Give our team of professionals a call 24/7 at (954) 973-4130 to make water losses “Like it never even happened.”

Can Flood Water Removal Save Coral Springs Homes?
Water damage from groundwater is one of the single most devastating disasters a home can have. It is filthy, sludgy, often smelly water, and even half an inch has the potential to leave the house destroyed.
Flood water removal from Coral Springs homes takes place in different ways, depending on the amount of water. SERVPRO technicians have access to a diverse array of water extraction and drying equipment to ensure the home is clean, disinfected, and ready for any repairs or rebuilding.
Fastest Extraction Methods
Safely removing groundwater is a priority. SERVPRO technicians test the floodwater to determine the nature of any contaminants and the presence of bacteria or sewage. Different kinds of contaminants require various cleaning applications for a successful outcome. Technicians use portable pumps on smaller-scale water loss cleanups, while for large-size house floods, truck-mounted trash pumps make short work of water, sludge, and debris removal.
Avoiding Mold Growth
Airborne mold spores remain present both inside and outside of Florida homes. When they encounter the highly humid ambient conditions inside properties with flood damage, they have the potential to germinate and infest the premises quickly. The technicians have training and certification in mold remediation #MRSR2994 and know the early warning signs to stop mold colonies before they set up home in the property.
Flood Damage Usually Looks Worse Before Getting Better
Because of the way sheetrock wicks moisture, it often requires cutting away using a method known as flood cuts. This action fully opens up wall cavities for complete drying, Due to the contaminated nature of black water; unfortunately, most porous items such as carpet and padding have no restoration potential and require disposal.
Less Stress for Repairs and Rebuilding
SERVPRO has a general contractor license #CBC1261730 and offers homeowners both restoration and reconstruction services. Since the technicians carefully document each action during mitigation, they already know the areas that require rebuilding. Plus, homeowners do not have to spend time finding and verifying outside contractors to do any necessary repairs.
SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland at (954) 973-4130 stands ready to assist local properties with any flood water removal needs. The technicians show up quickly and leave the property, "Like it never even happened."

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.

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.

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 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.

Is Fire Damage Cooking in Your West Coral Springs Kitchen?
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.
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
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
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.
