Expert Mold Removal for Commercial Spaces in Coral Springs

SERVPRO Technicians in Coral Springs are Trained in Mold Remediation

Mold is a type of microorganism that can pollute indoor environments. As a premises manager, staying on top of potential microbial infestation is at the forefront of your concern. A mold outbreak can delay business output by forcing some or all premises to be temporarily closed. We are a fast-acting team of remediation technicians that can help restore your business premises.

You may need commercial mold removal services in Coral Springs if you notice any symptoms of microbial growth. These symptoms are commonly linked to musty smells or visible growth that appears on surfaces. In this industry, remediation is the process of preventing mold from growing back, whereas removal is the demolishing of infested materials. In most commercial premises, both these activities must occur to return the premises to a usable condition. Microbial infestation can exponentially grow if given enough time, so we recommend that you reach out for professional remediation services at the first sign of damage. We help local businesses with:

  • Microbial infestation
  • Mold removal
  • Mold remediation

Microbes need very little light to grow, which means a musty odor or visible infestation can often be the tip of the iceberg. Common areas where mold spreads are underneath carpet laminate, pad, or subfloor. Acoustic tiles can support microbial growth, while ductwork inside air conditioning units can also be standard for microbial buildup. Some materials, such as sheet metal, can be easily cleaned using chemical or abrasive cleaning equipment. Other materials, such as textiles, which are naturally porous, may need to be removed and destroyed to avoid infestation. SERVPRO’s IICRC trained team can professionally reinstall any non-salvageable materials on your business premises.

  • Microbes feed off organic matter, which they convert into energy for growth. This matter can include carpets, acoustic tiles, drywall, or dirt. 
  • Resilient molds can grow in almost any temperature, but most strains thrive between 68 and 96 Fahrenheit.
  • It is vital to maintain an indoor relative humidity level below 60% to reduce mold growth in a business
  • . This humidity can be achieved with dehumidification or air conditioning.

If your business is infested with microbial organisms, contact SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland for commercial mold removal at (954) 973-4130.

Cleaning Up Fire Damage Suppression in Coral Springs Offices

Post-Fire Damage Cleanup of Suppression Methods Is Vital for Coral Springs Businesses

When a fire forms in your office building, extinguishment is the priority. Often, however, this suppression approach can leave damage of its own that must be cleaned and restored along with the effects of a fire.

Determining the Affected Area

Knowing how fire damage in Coral Springs office buildings occurred and what areas were affected is a good starting point to direct responding restorers to recovery priorities. Even with a fire that is rapidly extinguished and stopped in the office, residual damage results from the chemicals used in extinguishers or the needed water. Our SERVPRO team can help with important content management upon arrival like:

Fire Extinguisher Residues

Your office building likely has multiple fire extinguishing units installed on the walls and in designated areas throughout the property. When a fire starts in a breakroom or on the main floor of the office, these can help to put out the blaze quickly. Our team helps to clean up the thick dry chemical residues left behind by the potassium bicarbonate and sodium bicarbonate used in the solution before their corrosive properties cause greater damage.

Water Damage

Another form of suppression common in putting out larger structure fires is the use of high volumes of water. Damages resulting from pooling and standing water are often avoidable with fast action from our SERVPRO team. We have effective extractors and drying tools to manage these threats.

Cleaning Up Lingering Fire Damage

Fire damage can exist in many forms throughout the structure, even after the fire is extinguished. Beyond removing the remnants of suppression approaches, we must also address soot, smoke damage, structural weakness, and malodors that might keep your office from getting back to normal operations.

After a fire, our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team shows We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster when you call (954) 973-4130.

The Challenges Posed by water damage repair in Coral Springs facilities

Overcoming Water Damage at Your Coral Springs Home Is Easier With Assistance From SERVPRO

Water intrusion is not just an inconvenience that forces you to close down operations or work on additional cleaning tasks. It also leaves various damages which you must address to restore normalcy or prevent deterioration of fixtures at your Coral Springs property. 

Completing water damage repair at your Coral Springs home may be more challenging than you expect. Most issues only become apparent after starting the restoration processes unless you have significant experience handling such tasks as SERVPRO does.

Various Items at Your Property Need Attention After Water Damage, Including:

  • Structural materials
  • Appliances
  • Furniture

Although this may seem routine, challenges arise when the effort needed is beyond what you expect. For example, when dealing with structural materials, you might only anticipate water absorption, which is readily addressed through extraction and drying. However, elaborate repair processes may be necessary if physical changes have occurred. On the other hand, appliances may seem fine, only for problems to manifest later on. SERVPRO teams help identify and resolve the challenges.

Some Specific Challenges Common After Water Damage Include:

  • The need to demolish first before restoration
  • The need to move many or heavy items
  • Choosing the right cleaning product 

Demolition may seem like creating more damages or soiling unnecessary areas. However, it is impossible to address all aspects of water damage without a teardown. For instance, the water trapped in walls and other cavities would remain in the structure. Since our SERVPRO technicians use controlled demolition procedures such as drilling weep holes or making flood cuts, damage levels and soiling are minimal.

As you strive to remove soils, other problems like bad odor and staining or corrosion of materials might develop. The correct choice of cleaning products can prevent such issues. For instance, our SERVPRO teams use phosphate-free cleaning with zero VOCs, thus dealing with soiling without corroding or causing stains and strong odor issues.

SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland can help you tackle any water damage repair challenge at your premises. You can reach us at (954) 973-4130. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Many Surfaces Can be Damaged by Fire Extinguishment Methods in Coral Springs Properties.

After a fire, open office buildings can suffer substantially from the spread of fire damage effects and the lingering residues and deposits of extinguishment and suppression systems. As fast as properties can become overwhelmed by these effects, it is vital to have professional restoration technicians mobilize quickly to get mitigation and recovery started.

The Effects of Soot and Smoke Damage

Fire damage restoration for Coral Springs office buildings requires an understanding of the behaviors of smoke damage and what to expect for post-fire recovery and cleanup. Soot and smoke damage spread quickly, and when combined with residues or effects of extinguishment methods, several areas could be heavily damaged like:

  • Electronics
  • Furniture
  • Carpeting
  • Wall Systems
  • Artwork

Fire Extinguisher Residues

Sodium and potassium bicarbonates are both common types of extinguishment compounds and require specific cleaning products and practices to remove. Ammonia-based products can allow for wipe cleaning on these chemical compounds after loose debris is managed with vacuuming or brushing.

Water Damage from Sprinkler Systems

Sprinkler systems are common installations to attempt to quell a spreading fire quickly. While only the affected areas have sprinkler heads activated, each installed point can generate 20-40 gallons of water per minute. Because these mechanisms require manual shutdown, offices can be overwhelmed with water damage as well as fire damage. We have effective extraction and drying equipment to manage these conditions where necessary.

While you can appreciate the immense assistance provided by extinguishment and suppression systems during a fire, there are residues and films left behind. Our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team can help with efficient surface cleaning and restoration. Call our experienced team today at (954) 973-4130.

Less Invasive Mold Remediation Strategies for Coral Springs Offices

SERVPRO vans in front of a cream stucco building If mold damage affects your business, SERVPRO is Here to Help.

We begin with less intrusive mold removal options for busy Coral Springs office buildings. 

Because many businesses never recover from widespread damages like mold damage events, it is critical for professionals like our SERVPRO team to help with effective remediation and mold removal. We understand the burden on production and running the business, so we provide the least distracting and invasive cleaning options.

Mold Inspections Can Help Catalog Damages 

One of the first steps to managing mold damage in Coral Springs office buildings is an inspection. Our production manager can walk through the structure with management to determine your priorities, the best remediation solutions, and the affected areas.

Surface Treatment Options 

We strive to provide the least aggressive cleaning and remediation tactics available for your office building to limit our presence and disruption to your daily operations. Antimicrobial and sporicidal products can often provide wet cleaning strategies that eliminate mold spores on contact and make the surface uninhabitable to future colonies.

Aggressive Remediation Tactics That Might Be Necessary

While we will expect to utilize the least invasive and intruding approaches, considerable mold damage can often go beyond simple cleaning solutions like antimicrobial cleaning products. Instead, we have to remove the entire hyphae of an organism deeply seated in organic material, which can require:

  • Dry Ice Blasting
  • Sanding
  • Abrasive Cleaning
  • Controlled Demolition

Mold damage can be one of the most threatening situations for area businesses, making it critical for our team to provide efficient and effective remediation strategies as soon as possible. We understand the importance of keeping your business going, so we choose the least invasive removal solutions whenever we can. Give our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team a call today at (954) 973-4130.

SERVPRO Helps Coral Springs Commercial Properties by Offering Fast and Efficient Water Damage Restoration

Commercial establishments, including office spaces, restaurants, and gyms, can suffer extensive losses due to water issues. Hiring a professional water mitigation service such as SERVPRO at the right time can save your Coral Springs establishment from any long-term damage.  

SERVPRO technicians work hard to develop a strategy for water mitigation of your Coral Springs property that is least intrusive to the normal functioning of the business activities. We establish drying zones in the affected areas, sealing them off the unaffected areas to minimize secondary damage. SERVPRO technicians also use state-of-the-art equipment to speed up the drying process. However, in some instances, a controlled demolition might be needed to set up a drying system.  

How is Controlled Demolition Used to Accelerate Drying During Water Damage Repairs in Coral Springs

The IICRC S500 guidelines recommend considering controlled demolition to speed up the drying process. The SERVPRO technicians might consider the following during the water restoration process-

  • Removing carpet pad- SERVPRO techs use knee kicker and carpet awl to detach the carpet and extract water from the pad. The damaged carpet pad is cut into 2 ⋅ 2 feet sections before proper disposal. 
  • Removing baseboard and ventilating walls- If the water has saturated wall cavities, SERVPRO techs might need to perform baseboard removal. A special wall cavity drying system can be used in case of extensive water damage. The system forces air to move up into the wall cavities through holes drilled into the wall. We have an assortment of riggings for these injecti-dry devices.

SERVPRO Helps with Mold Inspection to Reveal Whether There Is a Mold Problem at Your Business Premises

For a business accustomed to handling wet and soiled fabrics, unusual smells may develop from time to time. However, if you notice a musty smell that persists, there is a high chance of hidden mold growth. Involving mold removal companies at such an early stage can help prevent dire issues in the future.

Mold can develop in any section of your premises if there is abundant moisture and organic food sources. Because of their vast experience, mold removal companies can help Coral Springs business operators readily identify the moldy areas. Therefore, no need to fret about destructive probing at your property. For instance, SERVPRO identifies hotspots such as the areas behind the washers or voids such as ceiling space. 

A professional Restoration Company Can Readily Handle:

  • Mold Inspection
  • Mold Removal
  • Black Mold Damage Repairs

On opening up covers such as ceiling tiles or wall panels, the main problem is readily noticeable. It can be an ugly sight with blackened surfaces and masses of mold colonies. Resolving such a situation on your own might seem daunting, but with help from SERVPRO technicians, it should be easier since we are conversant with regular and advanced removal techniques.  

For the areas with minimal infestations, standard cleaning techniques such as HEPA vacuuming and damp wiping can do the job. However, heavy infestations on semi-porous materials such as solid wood might require a better solution to eliminate the residues and remove any discoloration. Our SERVPRO technicians use blast cleaning, primarily soda or dry-ice blasting, eliminating all traces of the infestation, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland is one of the seasoned mold removal companies that help businesses resume operations after mold infestation. Call us at (954) 973-4130.

a wall covered in mold Mold can quickly and quietly overtake your home. Try calling team SERVPRO for effective mold damage remediation techniques.

Mold Can Spread Quickly in Moist Areas, and We Have Efficient Remediation for Parkland Properties

Moist areas can exist after storm damage and flooding, leading to mold and microbial development when not correctly and promptly addressed. Lingering moisture can facilitate mold colonies in as little as 48 hours, traveling through HVAC pathways and structural openings throughout the entire hospital.

How Can Black Mold Get Removed in Damp Areas of Parkland Facilities?

Black mold remediation in Parkland medical facilities must get taken seriously and acted on immediately. With how quickly mold colonies can spread throughout the structure, hundreds of patients and staff could become exposed and experience health effects.

A focused mold inspection can identify where colonies exist and the ideal mold removal option. To prevent controlled demolition when possible, we have several surface treatments that are considered first, including:

  • Power sanding
  • Aggressive cleaning
  • Antimicrobial products
  • Dry ice blasting

Containment barriers are often used if controlled demolition is needed. We can use negative air pressure with flexible ducts leading from air scrubbers to the exterior. Our most qualified technicians, certified AMRT’s, lead the mold remediation process. Often, a third party IH Industrial Hygienist is brought in by the client for air sampling and final inspection.

When mold remediation is needed in clinics and hospitals, there is an urgency to this work. Our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team can respond fast to help when you call (954) 973-4130.

There is a saying that Coral Springs is located nowhere, yet it is close to everything. It is a short drive away from other popular locations such as Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Coconut Creek, and other popular areas. It also neighbors the Everglades, where people partake in various thrilling activities like canoe trips, kayaking, and airboat rides.

A Relaxing Environment

Florida, in general, is considered a haven for retirees because of the warm weather and friendly tax laws. However, Coral Springs' master plan was geared towards younger people. Over the years, the median age has consistently been in the mid-30s. Several features, including a 182-acre Sportsplex and dozens of parks, help keep the younger residents occupied. Some of the top parks in the city include:

  • Cypress Park known for sports facilities, including four soccer fields and five ball fields.
  • Mullins Park, which offers a pleasant environment for relaxation.
  • Betti Stradling Park, which has a skate park and sports courts.

Housing in Coral Springs

In 2012, the city was listed 94th overall in the Money Magazine list of Top 100 Places to Live. It was the 3rd city on the list from Florida State. One factor that helps the municipality enjoy the favorable rating is the beautiful landscaping and diverse homes ranging from gated to non-gated.

Zoning rules help keep the neighborhoods upscale and pretty. For instance, any perimeter barriers set around properties must be the semi-privacy variant to allow wind-flow and visibility. The fences are also limited to 6 feet in height for the backyard and 4 feet for the front yard, ensuring clear visibility for drivers.  

The Best Places to Shop

Another remarkable aspect of the city is the variety and ease of access to shopping facilities. Some of the notable establishments include:

  • The Walk on University -It comprises approximately two city blocks and was created from renovating aging retail and office buildings and incorporating a vacant lot. The facility offers a unique experience for shoppers because they can walk around as they sample everything from fashion to dining facilities.
  • Coral square -It is an enclosed, climate-controlled shopping mall featuring many renowned stores like Kohl's, JCPenney, Macy's, and others.
  • Promenade at Coconut Creek -It is an open-air shopping mall with over 36 boutiques and stores, a luxury theater, and 14 restaurants offering the ultimate dining experience.

What Can Parkland Businesses Expect from Expert Water Removal?

3/2/2021 (Permalink)

drawing of person in warm clothing using hair dryer to thaw frozen pipes The once in a hundred year storms can happen here. Take precautions to winterize your pipes!

Gain Water Mitigation and Remediation Tips from Others' Bad Luck

Although the Parkland area is seldom at risk from snow and ice storms or plummeting temperatures, extreme weather events considered "once in a 100 years" surprises are on the rise everywhere. Unheard-of low temperature plus the build-up of wintery-mix precipitation causes significant property damage in typically temperate or warm areas. Shocking storms in places like Texas can catch a businessperson's attention, even in our region. 

How Do Frozen Water Pipes Cause Damage?

If unfamiliar with the consequences of frozen water lurking in supply or waste pipes, the first time a Parkland business owner confronts the cause and effect can be enlightening and terrifying. Damage similar to that seen during tropical storms, hurricanes, and overland flooding can trace to water's mere presence in a pipe. Water flowing through plumbing is a standard operating procedure when the ambient temperature is above 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Disaster occurs when below-freezing temperatures cause liquid water to:

  • Transform into a solid. 
  • Occupy more space during the freezing than did the liquid water.
  • Exert significant pressure on the pipes and fittings, the swelling creating cracks and splitting apart connections.

As weather conditions improve and temperatures increase, the worst happens. The frozen water melts, pouring through the pipe fissures into the affected properties.

What Can Businesses Do to Avoid Broken Pipes Due to Cold Weather?

Owners of commercial buildings in colder climates put many safeguards to prevent the catastrophic damage that frozen pipes bring. Similar in intent to the planning done to protect property because of Parkland's tropical climate and risk of exposure to hurricanes and other severe storms, steps taken to minimize the harm of freezing and thawing include:

  • Insulation of the pipes and spaces where pipes thread through.
  • Sealing of joints and other weak spots that permit outdoor air to intrude.
  • Installation of an automatic excess flow switch on the main supply water line to detect a broken pipe or valve. 
  • Shut off the water main once the leak potential becomes apparent.

These practical and affordable strategies can deflect the rare possibility of frozen pipes in Parkland and prevent or give early warning of a range of other water problems in your business.

Who Should Get the Call if Plumbing Fails in Your Business?

Regardless of how water makes its way through the infrastructure intended to contain it in your Parkland business, water removal is crucial. SERVPRO positions water extraction as one of our core services, investing in worker training from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and high-efficiency and heavy-duty equipment. We arrive promptly and complete the following:

  • A safety hazard assessment, determining whether trapped fluids pose additional risks
  • Pumping and extraction of the bulk of the water with submersible and truck-mounted equipment

We also perform controlled demolition to release water from building cavities, including

  • Punching weep holes in ceilings and upper walls
  • Cutting drainage slits to permit water between walls to exit
  • Sawing flood cuts to remove irreparably damaged drywall and open areas for water removal and structural drying.

Our construction division helps with both the demolition and any build back needed.

Be sure to line up the pros at SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland for your commercial water extraction needs. Call (954) 973-4130 for a prompt assessment and implementation of an efficient water removal plan.

Coral Springs is a Great Place to Live

Beaches, Nature and Entertainment Make Coral Springs a Wonderful Place to Settle Down

Coral Springs is a relatively young city in Broward County, Florida. It was only chartered in July of 1963, adding itself to the Miami metropolitan area. It was a planned community developed by Coral Ridge Properties, which gave the city its name. Contrary to what one would expect, there are no natural springs in the area. However, Coral Springs does offer the beauty of South Florida with its fantastic weather and proximity to idyllic beaches. Following its incorporation, the city grew and maintained its allure through strict oversight, low crime rates, and family-friendly appeal. It is hard to believe that cattle were the leading population in the area barely half a century ago. Now, you find schools, shopping centers, numerous parks, and significant retail space, as well as the growth that came after the Sawgrass Expressway was built in 1986.

As you drive through Broward County, you’ll find Parkland, Coconut Creek, Margate, North Lauderdale, and Tamarac bordering Coral Springs. To its west, the magnificent Everglades serves as the city’s neighbor. You may notice that tall buildings are not standard in the area, which goes hand in hand with the original guidelines put forth by Coral Ridge Properties, which included sign restrictions and landscaping. A fun fact regarding signage showed up in the popular game, Trivial Pursuit. Coral Springs was the first city to house a McDonald’s without its iconic golden arches. Building paint, storage of boats and recreational vehicles, and many other rules are still enforced. Some say that the attention to detail makes it such a great place to live and drive property values higher than comparable communities. Construction continues, especially in the downtown area.

Among other amenities in Coral Springs, residents enjoy free city bus rides within its boundaries, while Broward County Transit runs transportation to other localities. The Sawgrass Expressway helps connect residents like the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, a mere 27 miles away, and a true gateway to the world.

Broward County’s History

Even though Coral Springs is a young city, Broward County dates to the early 1900s. Most people do not realize that Broward owes its name to Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, who governed Florida from 1905 to 1909. Governor Broward began to make the Everglades habitable and make it into what is now his namesake county. 

Dania, the County’s first incorporated community, was followed by pompano and Fort Lauderdale. A few years later, in 1915, Dade County and Palm Beach County contributed portions of land to form Broward County. In 1919, Ft. Lauderdale opened its first hotel, and wetlands were dredged to create residential communities. Sadly a hurricane in 1926 devastated the booming area. It wasn’t until after World War II that another boom happened, and residential neighborhoods took over what used to be agricultural lands.

The 1960s brought significant change to Broward County, including the incorporation of Coral Springs, Parkland, and Tamarac, among others. The decade also marks the desegregation of County beaches in 1962, two years after Broward College opened its doors. Today, the area continues to grow in tandem with the greater Miami area, and Broward County beaches are a popular destination for vacationers and retirees. Easy access, a robust healthcare system, and reputable academic institutions are a few of the qualities Broward County residents enjoy.

What to do near Coral Springs?

Sports lovers will find much to do in Coral Springs, home to the Florida Panthers National Hockey League team. The Panthers welcome fans from the whole South Florida area in its arena in Sunrise. The Dolphins football team is also close-by with a newly renovated stadium ready to bring the best of the NFL to its patrons. Soccer is a growing sport in South Florida, and Broward County, in particular, has done a lot to strengthen younger players and leagues in their parks. The Miami FC is the newest addition to sports in the area, and it practices in nearby Fort Lauderdale, inspiring fans and players to come out and cheer them on. Basketball lovers often follow the Miami Heat and travel the short distance from Coral Springs to the American Airlines Arena to watch some of the best players in the NBA.

Another popular attraction is the casinos with their games and special shows. Some of the most popular establishments include-

  • Coconut Creek Seminole Casino
  • Pompano Park Isle Casino Racing
  • Hollywood Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

Gulfstream Park also offers a casino, dining, and thoroughbred racing surrounded by a beautiful shopping area. Just a few miles away from Coral Springs, it is a great place to enjoy an afternoon with friends and family.

Protection for Small Businesses in Coral Springs

Many small and mid-size businesses flourish in South Florida, and Coral Springs is no exception.

Can SERVPRO Save Our Conference Room Furniture During Mold Removal?

10/13/2020 (Permalink)

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.

If you need assistance with mold remediation, call SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland at (954) 973-4130.

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.

What Is the Plan to Repair the Holes Cut in the Walls of My Retail Space by Restorers?

injecti-dry systems drying house SERVPRO Says Strategic Drying with Advanced Equipment Can Reduce Build Back for Flood Damaged Properties in Coral Springs

Strategies to Remove Hidden Moisture Can Cause Temporary Disruption, but SERVPRO’s Rebuilding Division Steps in With Expert Water Damage Repair in Coral Springs

A common complication of a plumbing leak in Coral Springs retail property is coping with the water that collects in building cavities as it migrates away from the source. Out of sight cannot be out of mind when water remains in any space of your commercial building. The water continues its corrosive destruction of structural components and can also set up the perfect environment for damaging mold growth.

How Is Hidden Water Located and Managed?

For the successful completion of water damage repair projects in Coral Springs commercial buildings often require some form of planned and controlled demolition. If you have never dealt with a severe water crisis before, this type of response can seem radical. Mid-implementation, you understandably wonder why these strategies are “go-tos” for professional restorers. Generally speaking, removing water is preferable to the extended and frankly ineffective drying options available if materials are not altered or removed to enhance mitigation. Here are examples of a controlled demolition, and the reasoning behind the actions:

  • Weep holes punched through bulges in ceilings and walls -- to release trapped water before a structure collapses
  • Cut or drilled holes behind baseboards or beadboard -- to drain water pooled near the bottom of a cavity between walls and allow airflow for drying
  • Removal of toe kicks under built-in cabinets -- to gain access to space under a fixture where water has collected for extraction and drying
  • Flood cuts -- drywall cut parallel to the floor several inches above the flood line to remove damaged building materials and open up cavities for extraction and drying
  • Injecti-dry equipment for positive or negative airflow into voids

Who Repairs the Demolition Aftermath?

Our SERVPRO maintains a general commercial contractor’s license to offer high-quality rebuilding services to customers lawfully. Commercial: CBC1261730 and Mold Remediation: MRSR2994. Replacing drywall, filling holes, and reinstalling trim and panelling are services we choose to take responsibility for providing as part of the overall restoration project.

SERVPRO Comes to the Rescue at Your Coral Springs Business to Help with Commercial Water Damage Restoration

If you have a large office building in Coral Springs and water damage has spread throughout several areas, the water loss is often substantial. A situation like this always calls for professional restoration efforts, which is when we spring into action at SERVPRO. Whether you have bathroom flooding or a burst pipe, these are not routine cleaning jobs. We are Faster to Any Size Disaster, and our crew comes with all the tools and extensive training necessary to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Will You Help with Water Removal as Well as Drying?

Your Coral Springs commercial water damage project comes with a tight timeframe before secondary damage sets in. Instead of trying to line up a range of contractors on your own to handle the cleanup, selecting one team that can do it all is the best route to take. We come with all the steps for:

  •   Packout services
  •   Water removal
  •   Drying
  •   Controlled Demolition
  •   Cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing

What Experience Do You Have?

Once you call us for water damage restoration, you can count on a skilled crew of technicians to arrive promptly so that the assessment may begin. Our team carries multiple certifications via the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). This prepares us to formulate a plan for mitigation while using best practices for remediation. Depending on your needs, we can scale our response to match the intensity and extent of the damage. 

What Do We Do Until You Arrive?

There are multiple things to keep in mind once a water loss event occurs. Some of the things that you should avoid until we arrive includes:

  •   Avoid power sources if there is any wiring or electrical outlets that may have been impacted by water. If possible, you can consult with your maintenance team about turning off the power. Should your office space be a lease, it is a good idea to contact the property owner as soon as possible.
  •   Try to avoid rudimentary drying methods with fans, as they may only circulate moisture droplets that can lead to secondary damage. Our team has industrial strength drying and dehumidifying equipment that removes moisture from the air while pulling it from surfaces.
  •   Never delay when faced with water damage. Doing so could lead to structural concerns or the onset of mold and mildew in as little as 48 hours. Prompt mitigation helps cut down on costly repairs and losses.

What About the Electronics in Our Office?

There are many critical factors when it comes to preserving the electronics throughout your office space after a water loss incident. Our team takes a look at several factors:

  •   Did water drip on your electronics? It is important to assess not only the exterior of all electronics but also the inside to determine if each piece can be dried and cleaned. 
  •   Was the electronic fully submerged? Items that have been underwater might not be salvageable due to circuit failure, heavy rust, or corrosion. We have content cleaning technicians that search for these signs while also taking note of the time and how much of the components were exposed. All items, salvageable or not, are removed and logged for insurance purposes.
  •   Has it been exposed to high humidity levels? The humidity in any office space after a water loss incident will increase dramatically. Electronics exposed to high humidity for any length of time is cause for concern. 

NOTE: Our team can dry the exterior electronics covers, but we do not open any devices that contain circuitry and transistors. Whenever your electronics have been subjected to moisture, we can send them to a reliable third party dedicated to their inspection, cleaning, drying, and repair. 

What is Secondary Damage?

Any moisture leftover after a water loss incident brings on the potential for secondary damage. After all of the water is removed from the space using extraction tools, pumps, and light wand extractors, our crew begins the moisture detection process. Water migrates using the path of least resistance to move onto drier spaces. We use moisture sensors and infrared technology to find hidden pockets of moisture so that nothing is left behind. When moisture is left to fester, it brings the potential for hazardous mold and mildew growth along with further damage to porous materials and structural components of the building. 

Cleaning and Deodorizing

It is essential to leave the interior of your office in the preloss condition. Our team uses a range of EPA-registered cleaning agents and disinfectants that ensures all surfaces are thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized. This not only ensures a clean result but also helps to inhibit the onset of odors.

How Does Smoke and Soot Spread in a Hotel?
Fire damage to Coral Springs hotels and event centers is not stagnant. HVAC systems operating during the blaze pull in the particles, vapors, and gases and spread them throughout the property.

Supporting your ability to meet your obligations to guests is essential to the viability of our community. We make recommendations designed to keep key spaces on your property open for business:

    •    Shutdown or rerouting of HVAC systems
    •    Prevents the venting of smoke and soot into unaffected spaces
    •    Containment of  restoration areas

Use of 1.6 mil polyethylene to build and negative pressure air scrubbers to seal the perimeter around where our crews clean and deodorize permits other areas of your property to operate as usual.

Pack-out of damaged contents
Moving out furnishings and fixtures such as carpeting to staging areas at our production facility or unused spaces on your commercial site allows our technicians to work more quickly and removes a significant source of soot and odors.

A coffee and donut shop counter with employees behind the counter. Water damage to your business can be a lot to deal with in general. Let us help ease your mind, and get you back in business.

Your Coral Springs Coffee Shop will want to have SERVPRO there for the restoration.

You rely on the loyalty of your patrons to keep your Coral Springs coffee shop going. From the early morning hours through the late evening, you can expect a steady flow of traffic in the shop, many of which take a seat and appreciate the internet you provide to get some work done away from their stuffy offices. Meeting these demands of your customers can help to set you apart from the competition, and that includes the way that you handle disasters inside of the building. 

Water damage to your Coral Springs coffee shop can quickly compromise the entire structure when left inadequately addressed. When fixtures in the coffee prep areas break or begin leaking, all of the particle board structural elements can become susceptible to damages. With a porous cabinet and shelving material like particle board covered in a veneer, you have a limited time before water and moisture penetrate the surface and begin changing the composition of the material. 

As water restoration professionals with extensive training and education through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), our SERVPRO team can utilize advanced equipment and technologies to begin drying out your coffee shop as soon as we arrive. We can use light wands and squeegee wands attached to wet vacuums to remove excess water from the surface of flooring to help maximize the efficiency and success of positioned air movers and dehumidification tools. 

If areas like the cabinetry and tables in this preparation area become too severely affected by moisture exposure to get dried and restored, we have a team of reconstruction specialists to help. Our licensed (#CBC1261730) general contractors can remove the damaged cabinetry, counters, and shelving when necessary, but we work to restore the damage first to reduce any limitations on your business. 

We can work quickly after hours to get you back in business. With our efficient drying and extraction solutions, we can gain control of water loss incidents quickly to make these disasters “Like it never even happened.” Give our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team a call today at (954) 973-4130.

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.”

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.
