Can SERVPRO Save Our Conference Room Furniture During Mold Removal?

Coral Springs Business Owners Want To Rescue Their Furniture from Mold Damage

If you have a medium to large-sized business in Coral Springs, chances are you have a meeting or conference room on site. A conference room is an ideal place to gather your team together and discuss ideas or make decisions.

Unfortunately, any part of your business environment can need mold removal in Coral Springs, including the conference room. Mold is a fungus that can grow wherever it has a food source, oxygen, darkness, and moisture. Your conference room contains several sources of food, such as:

  • Wooden tables and chairs, especially older or untreated items
  • Upholstered seats
  • Metal furniture frames – although metal is not a food course, deposits of grime or dust can cause mold growth on metal surfaces

What can SERVPRO do to save conference furniture?

Our technicians can use scrubbing, antimicrobial products, and powerful HEPA vacuums to remove mold and spores from wood and metal. We can also use spot-cleaning to deal with damaged upholstery. In some cases, we might use hydraulic Esporta washing or ultrasonic tank immersion – these are especially useful for blinds and drapes or small items.

We can also remediate mold around the walls and ceiling of the conference room.

We set up containment barriers with poly sheeting around your meeting room or storage area before we begin to discourage the spores from spreading throughout your office.

What should our staff do?

Before and during mold removal, please ensure your staff:

  • Do not try to clean the mold
  • Do not walk through the affected room unless it is unavoidable
  • Listen to our instructions about when it is safe to enter

Can you prevent the mold from coming back?

We can dry out your room and furnishings before we leave, to make it more difficult for mold to propagate. The best thing you can do is ensure your conference furniture is kept in a dry place, where mold cannot grow. You might use a dehumidifier, or even invest in a thermo-hygrometer to keep an eye on humidity levels. The obvious is to keep the humidity at a comfortable level with HVAC usage.

We deodorize both the furniture and the room at the end of remediation, to leave your business Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

What Can Coral Springs Homeowners Do to Prepare for Flooding?

9/27/2020 (Permalink)

Actions homeowners take before a flood in their Coral Springs home can make the difference in the outcome when SERVPRO mitigates the loss

Coral Springs homeowners regularly deal with intense storms, including hurricanes. With these strong systems, flash flooding is frequently part of the problem. There are some things that homeowners can do before the damage from flooding is an issue such as:
    •    Elevating electrical items on the floor such as strip plugs and electrical devices such as computers, stereos, and appliances  
    •    Direct the flow of water away from your property by elevating the grade as needed on your landscape  
    •    Investing in environmental monitoring that can alert you to elevations in moisture throughout your home can allow you to act quickly if water does enter   
    •    Clean debris and leaves from your gutters around your home, and invest in gutter covers if feasible  
    •    Make a list of valuables, copies of prescriptions, and essential papers and place them in a secure, waterproof lockbox in a place you can grab it quickly if you need to evacuate

How Does Mold Show Up So Rapidly After Flood Damage?
Once flood damage occurs in your Coral Springs home, under most circumstances, you have roughly 48 hours before mold colonies have the potential also to be an issue. SERVPRO technicians have extensive training in handling mold as an added challenge during floodwater extraction and drying in a property. This SERVPRO has a mold remediation certification #MRSR2994 and has the equipment and methods to turn around a mold infestation. The reason this time frame is so crucial is that the elevated humidity levels from the floodwater along with the warm Florida temps create an ideal environment for naturally occurring mold spores to germinate and begin to spread. The techs know what the initial setup of a mold infestation looks like along with the early warning signs such as:
    •    Water spots on walls may harbor mold growth on the interior
    •    Visible mold colonies  
    •    Musty odors

What Happens to Flood and Mold Damaged Building Materials?
There are a few different outcomes for the sheetrock and flooring in a home with damage from floodwater.
    •    Items that absorb floodwater and cannot get sanitized need disposal  
    •    SERVPRO techs cut off the minimum amount of sheetrock needed to limit the number of repairs needed and save as much cost on replacement building materials as possible
    •    Carpet needs extraction to get rid of the water-weight and then gets cut into strips and disposed of
    •    Most types of tile and laminate flooring delaminate after exposure to floodwater. Ceramic tile with sealed grout lines tends to have the least amount of seepage into the substrate and often gets restored for reuse
    •    Hardwood floorboards have varied outcomes depending on the amount of exposure to water the boards received

After extracting the water from the home and drying it, the techs prepare the property for the needed repairs. Controlled demolition is a standard part of restoration after damage from floodwater. Often it is easiest for homeowners to choose to work with SERVPRO on both the restoration and rebuilding needed to bring the home to the same condition as it was before the floodwater entered.

This SERVPRO has a contractor license #CBC1261730 and can perform the needed repairs. One of the most significant benefits of letting the people who managed the cleanup of your property do the rebuilding know exactly what actions were taken and what is needed to restore the home. Many homeowners take the opportunity during the reconstruction to choose new carpet, the updated color palette for the walls, and other cosmetic options to upgrade the look of their house. Before any reconstruction efforts begin, SERVPRO communicates with your insurance carrier to ensure that all actions taken are part of the scope of coverage, so there are no surprise out of pocket expenses.

How Do the Musty Odors of Floodwater Get Removed?
While the extraction of the water and drying the structure go a long way to reducing the odor, frequently, it does not get eliminated until the application of more robust methods. Two of the most commonly used are the use of thermal fogging and hydroxyl generators. Both of these devices work to remove odors at the molecular level rather than only covering them up temporarily, such as in the use of sprays.

SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland at (954) 973-4130 stands ready to assist local property owners in the cleanup of any size flood damage in their homes. The techs arrive quickly and can handle the restoration as well as the reconstruction of your home to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Can Exposed Beams In a Farmhouse Be Saved After Fire Damage?

9/18/2020 (Permalink)

Kitchen after fire Kitchen fires can happen at any time. Contact SERVPRO for fire damage remediation services.

Parkland Homes Are Restored to Pre-Loss Condition with Proper Fire Damage Mitigation.

A fire does not have to be all-consuming to impact your Parkland home. A Kitchen fire is the most common cause of residential blazes. This is what caused the fire that damaged the exposed beams in this farmhouse kitchen. Professional fire mitigation ensures proper cleanup and restoration.

How Can Soot Be Removed from The Exposed Beams?

You built your kitchen around the beautiful wood and exposed beams to reflect the rustic look you love. Then a kitchen fire causes some charring and soot damage to the beams. To properly handle the fire damage to the Parkland residence, SERVPRO gets called in. Not only were the wood structural elements impacted, but smoke residue had spread throughout the kitchen. Other areas were affected as well. One of the techniques used in situations like this is dry ice blasting.

What Does Dry Ice Blasting Do?

Dry ice blasting is perfect in situations like this as it is a gentle, non-abrasive cleaning method. It is a dry process that involves the use of C02 pellets.  When the pellets hit the surface, they dissipate instantly. In this case, avoiding the use of steel brushes, scapers, and other blasting methods is preferred to save the look of the exposed beams. Dry ice blasting has many benefits, including:

  • Eco-friendly – No harsh chemicals get used, and the entire process is non-toxic.
  • Water free – Pressure washing could be used but would introduce water to the scene. No water involved in this process.
  • No waste disposal – No extra waste is produced by this method.
  • Simple cleanup – Sweeping or vacuuming typically takes care of the soot waste that falls to the floor.
  • Saves time & money  – Quicker than traditional methods; it means lower labor cost. 

Fire Damage Restoration

SERVPRO provides comprehensive fire restoration services. Our technicians are well-trained in fire damage mitigation. They can restore exposed beams in many situations as well as remove smoke residue and unpleasant odors. The contents of the home can often be cleaned, repaired, and restored.Contact SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland at (954) 973 - 4130 for quality fire damage service.

Strategies Designed to Release Fluids and Facilitate Drying, Remove, or Adapt Building Materials During Water Removal in Parkland Do Their Job Before Build Back by SERVPRO Professionals

Amid the chaos of a water loss in Parkland, the last thing you might expect is the restorers' decision to increase the mess by drilling and cutting holes in various building materials and sawing out sections of drywall. Gaining an understanding of the ways and places water migrates after a loss helps clarify why these seemingly extreme measures are sometimes necessary to rid your home of liquids and lingering moisture.

Why Do Water Damage Removal Professionals Track Water After a Leak or Overflow?

After plumbing ruptures or appliance malfunctions, water removal in your Parkland home is not as simple as mopping up the visible fluids. Water always spreads out unless contained in a completely watertight vessel. In a home, this means it moves across the floor and percolates through cracks and crevices. This migration means water invades areas, often unseen building cavities, of your home far from the original emergency site. As the water wanders, it also soaks into permeable structural materials widespread in conventional construction such as:

  • Drywall
  • Insulation
  • Subfloors, typically constructed of unfinished plywood
  • Laminate flooring

What Happens if the Water Is Not Removed?

SERVPRO's decision to maintain a robust and certified construction division is based in part on the critical need to find and release trapped water and permit efficient structural drying. When water hides and lingers, materials affected swell and distort, losing strength and impairing function. Secondary damage, like mold growth, is possible after only 24 to 48 hours. Our construction crew assists our Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) crews by:

  • Drilling or cutting a series of smaller holes in drywall or lath and plaster near the floor to drain water (prying up woodwork first)
  • Drilling holes in mortar joints in cinder block and brick construction to liberate fluids collected in cells
  • Sawing "flood cuts" several inches above the waterline between studs where drywall is wet and needs removal 
  • Repairing and building back structures after the controlled demolition

Our construction division offers excellent flexibility when SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland plans water removal and drying. Call us at  (954) 973-4130 to explore your options after water damage.

Who Can I Call for Holiday Water Damage Cleanup for My Business?

8/26/2020 (Permalink)

24/7 365 SERVPRO professionals are trained to handle every level of water damage. Call us today, we are always available.

SERVPRO techs are available 24/7 to handle any size commercial water damage in your Coral Springs property. 

Frustration does not even begin to touch how you feel when you find out your commercial property in Coral Springs needs water cleanup after hours or during a holiday. The longer water sits, the more it degrades, and the more serious the potential damage to the building materials and contents. There are often repairs needed post-restoration; however, SERVPRO can handle both the mitigation as well as any repairs required to bring the property back to how it was before the water incident happened. 

What Types of Commercial Water Damage Repair Can SERVPRO Handle?  

When you need commercial water damage repair in your Coral Springs property, there is very little that the trained technicians cannot do for you. Typical actions during water mitigation in the business might include:  

  • Extraction of the water
  • Controlled demolition of ruined building materials
  • Drying the premises  
  • Move out of stock items to a safe area  
  • Arranging for testing of electronics affected by water before reuses  
  • Needed structural repairs to the building to make it safe for operations

Essential Questions to Ask a Restoration Services Company Before You Make a Choice  

When it comes to getting your commercial property cleaned up and restored so you can get your daily operations back to normal, there are many questions to ask a potential restoration services company to ensure you pick the best fit.

Standard inquiries might include some of the following:  

  • Are you licensed as a general contractor?  
  • Do the technicians on your staff hold certifications in the restoration sciences?  
  • Is there any type of warranty or guarantee for the work done?  
  • Will you work with my insurance carrier?

SERVPRO does all of these actions and more. The certified technicians undergo not only comprehensive training but also continuing education as advancements get made in the restoration industry. 

Controlled demolition is a prevalent part of the water cleanup process. When a pipe breaks or rainwater leaks in from a damaged roof, the building materials can bear the brunt of the issue. Water wicks rapidly into sheetrock, and it deteriorates quickly, requiring the removal of the saturated portion to halt any further damage. SERVPRO techs use a technique known as "flood cuts" to remove only the ruined part and leave the rest of the wall or ceiling intact.  Removal of only the damaged portion makes the repairs go much faster as only pieces of sheetrock need to get cut and fit into the opened areas rather than entire walls or ceilings. Seepage of water is another frequently seen issue. Once the water is under the floor covering, it can delaminate tile, ruin the backing of industrial carpeting, and harbor mold if the conditions are right.

Mold Treatment and Prevention  

With their mold remediation training and certification #MRSR2994, SERVPRO techs know the early warning signs of an infestation as well as how to handle it or preventative measures that can get taken to avoid it happening at all. When the techs arrive, they scope the property, and particularly in the case of a long term leaking problem, they look for signs of mold colony growth. The techs have access to the necessary equipment and to both EPA-registered and professional-strength antimicrobial cleaning agents and sealants to combat any size mold issue.

When walls need cutting or subfloor needs exposing to dry a property post-water damage, there is a certain amount of rebuilding and repairs that can be expected to occur. With their commercial general contractor license #CBC1261730, the techs not only know how to open up a property for complete drying, but they also know how to do it in a minimally invasive way to limit the number of repairs needed to restore the business. Additional actions to prep the company for reopening include odor control methods to get rid of musty water odors and cosmetic applications such as painting walls that got repaired.  

Moving out items, particularly electronics and stock items, is another standard part of the water cleanup process. The techs establish either a safe area within the building getting worked on, or set up a secure pod on-site. Once the mitigation efforts complete, they bring the articles back in and put each item back in its place, so when the business reopens, there is zero confusion about where anything is. 

SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland at (954) 973-4130 when you need fast and complete commercial water damage repair. The technicians are available around the clock, seven days a week, to turn around the damage and restore your business property.

Flood Mitigation in Coral Springs Homes

8/18/2020 (Permalink)

Flooding in the kitchen and livingroom Flooding conditions can happen with little warning after a violent storm system passes through the area.

Natural flooding can threaten the entire main floor of a Coral Springs residence simultaneously, requiring efficient mitigation and flood removal.

Widespread flooding conditions in Coral Springs homes present immediate threats to the property, including saturation and absorption of potential contaminants. From the penetration points in a single-story structure, water can spread quickly through the main foyer and open areas of the property, reaching even the farthest points when no obstructions prevent this migration. Mitigation for these flooding conditions is critical and involves multiple tools and technologies to gain control of a rapidly worsening situation.

The extraction of flood damage in Coral Springs homes falls primarily to the ratings of gallons per minute or hour. Submersible pumps offer a universal flood removal approach with the highest volumes of discharge continually. Wet vacuums are also valuable extraction devices for depths that are shallower than two inches, where submersible pumps often lose the prime necessary for continued water removal. Saturated elements like flooring can benefit from specialty equipment designed to pull moisture and trapped water from carpets, wood plank flooring, and other materials. Even if controlled demolition is necessary, water removal must happen first. Some of these devices include:

    •    Light Wands
    •    Weighted Extractors
    •    Carpet Wands
    •    Floor Drying Mats

Do Exposed Flooring Materials Require Removal?

Contaminants pose a substantial threat to the house's occupants, precisely because bacterial and viral pathogens can exist in the intruding floodwater. It is often easier and more cost-efficient to remove exposed materials and structural elements than to thoroughly clean and dry these areas.

Flooding conditions can happen with little warning after a violent storm system passes through the area. Many look to the fast response and industry-leading equipment of our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team to begin flood mitigation immediately. Give us a call whenever disasters strike at (954) 973-4130.

Why Can’t I Clean Up After a Small Electrical Fire in Coral Springs?

SERVPRO Has the Proven Fire Restoration Methods to Bring Your Coral Springs Home Back to Normal Once Again

While you may not give the electrical work in your home much thought until there is an issue, fires involving these systems are some of the most common. Rather than having an electrician come out after you try cleaning it on your own, SERVPRO has the industry knowledge on best practices for handling the restoration. We can make sure the interior of your Coral Springs home is back to preloss condition faster than any DIY methods can achieve. With our Commercial Contractor License, we can perform most repairs and replacements of structural elements and fixtures.

Why Do I Have to Worry About Further Dangers or Damage?

Even once the fire is extinguished, you run the risk of further damage and hazards trying to execute the cleanup on your own. SERVPRO can help with fire restoration in Coral Springs, especially addressing areas you may not have thought of. Some of the most common causes of electrical incidents in the home include:

    •    Overloaded circuits
    •    Faulty or old wiring
    •    DIY home electrical work
    •    Damaged power cables or devices

It is vital that you call SERVPRO as soon as possible to get started with the restoration process. The longer ash and smoke residue remain, the more damage may develop. The soot and smoke are acidic, which can lead to corrosion over time. These odors can permeate and become difficult to remove without invasive measures.

As part of our fire restoration efforts, we can clean your carpeting, upholstered furniture, walls, and other surfaces affected by smoke and soot residue. The goal is always to restore rather than replace whenever possible. Everything is deodorized and left to ensure your interior is “Like it never even happened.”

At SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland, We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster! Call us 24/7 when you need our emergency fire restoration services at (954) 973-4130.

How Many Different Contractors Do I Need for Restoration of Fire Damage in Coral Springs?

Streamline Your Fire Damage Restoration by Partnering with SERVPRO in Coral Springs

The sheer number of tasks that need planning and implementing after a Coral Springs household fire can be staggering. It is hard to imagine that the destruction and mess will ever be set to rights. Expecting to find all of the expertise and equipment needed to make a complicated fire disaster “Like it never even happened,” from just one company might seem impossible. With our focus on the training and experience of our well-equipped employees, we are sure we can deliver outstanding results on all fronts.

Does the Fire Restoration Industry Follow a Set Protocol?

Fire damage restoration in Coral Springs, as elsewhere, must proceed within the confines of local regulations, but it is also guided by standards set by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). The theories and skills taught by the IICRC are encyclopedic in nature, but are not static, developing continuously as research contributes to the knowledge base and innovative equipment offers better and faster results.

What Are the First Things Needing Management in a Fire Restoration Project?

SERVPRO always puts safety first when arriving to assess any fire disaster. Our responsibility is to thoroughly scope out the scene to locate safety concerns and then address each appropriately before commencing emergency and restoration services. Although fire restoration projects share commonalities, every job has differences, so we must familiarize ourselves with:

    •    Electrical and other utility systems and configuration
    •    Electric shock or oil or gas leakage risks
    •    Structural or material damage
    •    Particular building materials present, including hazards such as
    •    Asbestos
    •    Lead (including as paint)
    •    Information about any off-gassing during combustion
    •    Current category (level of contamination) of any firefighting water present
    •    Slip, trip, and fall risks

How Are Safety Hazards Managed During Fire Damage Restoration?

After assessment of the hazards, the following issues, if deemed concerns need controls:

    •    Electrical and other utility lines might require temporary shut off
    •    Damaged structural components may need removal or temporary support by our construction division
    •    Hazardous material mandate containment, removal, and lawful disposal by our certified biohazard removal technicians
    •    Air quality worries require the use of negative pressure air scrubbers and wearing of respirators by technicians

Water Is Mentioned Frequently -- What Is In the Project Plan for Water Issues?

The two primary focuses of our business are water and fire disaster restoration. Many of our team members hold IICRC certifications in both disciplines. We move on water removal before fire cleanup because of the severe safety issues, and because even uncontaminated water is incredibly corrosive to building materials. Our crews concentrate on the following, clearing the space, before moving to fire residue cleaning:

    •    Water removal with pumps and extractors
    •    Contaminated water containment and lawful disposal
    •    Inhibition of microbial growth with EPA-registered antimicrobials
    •    Structural drying

How Do Restoration Workers Choose Fire Residue Removal Strategies?

Training again steps forward, preparing our IICRC-certified Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) to evaluate the residues and select the most efficacious products and methods to clean them from surfaces. Complicating this step is that as the fire moved through your home, the materials consumed, and conditions during the burning varied. The characteristics of the sooty coatings, thus, also vary, space by space. Sometimes one room can have several different kinds of soot to manage. Our FRSTs proceed to clean up the residues as follows:

    •    Preliminary determination of the type of soot -- dry, wet, or protein-based
    •    Testing of products and methods in inconspicuous spots
    •    Implementation of the chosen strategies, diligently moving from surface to surface until all are clean and ready for additional restorative efforts

Can One of the Crews Work on Deodorization?

If despite deep cleaning and air scrubbers smells linger, we offer a multitude of deodorization options. Although we have proprietary products that mask and distract smells, we prefer to work toward elimination. Some of the advanced approaches we employ that can clean hard to reach areas or chemically alter and neutralize the odor-bearing particles in your home include:

    •    HVAC ductwork cleaning
    •    Thermal fogging
    •    Ozone machines
    •    Hydroxyl generators
    •    Enzymatic products

Do I Need to Hire a Remodeling Contractor to Repair Damaged and Missing Structures?

Once the water and the residues are gone, damage to building materials can remain. Our construction teams are ready to help with a wide range of repair and build-back needs:

    •    Repair or replace wall and ceiling materials damaged or demolished to gain access to wet building cavities or hidden (and malodorous) debris
    •    Removal and replace porous materials like insulation, carpets, and padding
    •    Rebuilding of weakened or destroyed framing, floors, stairs, railings, and many more

Building a company that reveals strength after strength in the disaster restoration business has been SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland's goal and pledge to our community. We are committed to guiding every customer back to preloss condition, regardless of project complexity. Call (954) 973-4130 to explore what we can do for you.

SERVPRO Techs Have All the Answers for Cleaning up and Restoring Your Coral Springs Home From Water Loss

The chances of lessening loss to your home and contents work in your favor if you take two steps. The first is to begin the cleanup as rapidly as possible after the initial incident, and the second is to bring in professional help. There are a few things you should nail down before you decide on a restoration services company. Good questions to ask include:  

  • Are your employees trained and certified?  
  • Do you work with my insurance?
  • How do you handle out of the scope of coverage needs?  
  • Do you get approval before the disposal of loss items?

Can Water Restoration Companies Handle a Cleanup With Sewage? 

When your damage problem includes sewage in your Coral Springs home, not all water restoration companies have the training and experience to mitigate this kind of loss. Specific elements SERVPRO techs do during this kind of cleanup entail:  

  • Testing the water for the presence of bacteria or pathogens
  • Extraction and safe disposal of the water
  • Disinfection of the loss area

When Mold is Part of the Problem 

Mold can become an issue if conditions become favorable for mold spore germination and growth. Once established, the colonies can spread rapidly and require professional attention to ensure the infestation gets removed and does not come back. SERVPRO techs have comprehensive training in all aspects of mold remediation #MRSR2994 and know the early warning signs of a mold colony setting up home within the property. They have the equipment to contain, dry, and perform abatement. Afterward, if needed, the techs can treat the loss area with antimicrobial sealants to keep the mold from returning.

SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland at (954) 973-4130 is the gold standard among water restoration companies. Their certified and trained technicians arrive quickly and return your home to its preloss condition.
