SERVPRO is the Best Option When Your Coral Springs Home Suffers from Flood Damage

The last thing you want to deal with is flood damage as a homeowner, but there are times when a disaster strikes when you least expect it. If you try to tackle the cleanup process on your own, the chances are high that mistakes bring on expensive damages moving forward. Even months after the flooding is cleaned up, moisture left behind can damage your structure, and potentially hazardous mold and mildew grow exponentially.

If you suffer flood damage in Coral Springs, calling the experts for water removal and restoration helps you to know everything is taken care of. Our skilled technicians at SERVPRO evaluate your unique situation and construct a plan for water cleanup and total drying of your structure. We have educated technicians and managers trained with all the best practices for getting the water out and making it “Like it never even happened.”

Flooding Exposure
Floodwaters expose your home to a variety of contaminants from organic waste to silt and chemicals. A good reason to call our team at SERVPRO is that we are well-versed in all of the local regulations regarding the handling and disposal of hazardous fluids and materials. After all of the water exits your home, we have cleaning agents and disinfects that are EPA-registered that we use to make sure that your interior is safe and clean for you and your family.

Moisture Detection
Water gets into all sorts of cracks and crevices throughout the home, and moisture often remains undetected by the naked eye. SERVPRO is the right team for the job because we come in with moisture metering and thermal imaging technology to locate spots where hidden water lurks. Skipping this crucial step puts your home at risk of the building materials deteriorating as the secondary water damage takes hold.

Why choose SERVPRO for flood damage restoration? Because all of our technicians are thoroughly trained for floodwater removal. We have Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) trained team members who can plan and execute Applied Structural Drying (ASD) procedures to ensure your home is dried adequately and that all measures are taken to make it safe for you and your family.

Water Removal Processes In Coral Springs

Minimizing Secondary Damages When Completing Water Removal Processes in Coral Springs

When there is a water spill in your property, there is a need to carry out removal fast to make the property habitable again. Sometimes damages occur during the removal process depending on how it is done. A professional restorer such as SERVPRO can help prevent unnecessary secondary damages during water removal.

Safe movement of items
Content movement during the water removal process in Coral Springs might be necessary, depending on how much water is involved. Some contents are heavy, and others are bulky or even fragile, so moving them can lead to damages. Our SERVPRO technicians take precautions to avoid damaging your valuables. We also have helpful devices such as hand trucks, which ease the movement of heavy or bulky items.

Preventing moisture transfer
Although the spilled water causes most of the damage, the moisture that evaporates into the air can transfer the damage to other sections of the property. Such damage occurs when condensation transforms the moisture back to liquid water. Alternatively, materials with hygroscopic properties can absorb moisture from the air leading to damages. Our SERVPRO technicians take actions that help prevent such outcomes. Immediately after arriving at the loss site, we set up a dehumidifier to help keep humidity at optimal levels preventing condensation or moisture absorption by hygroscopic materials such as drywall or other gypsum-based products.

Useful accessories
Fast water removal is possible with the right equipment. Most of the equipment, such as pumps and extractors, are highly sophisticated. However, they also require simple accessories for optimal performance. Our crews bring different accessories to the loss site to ensure the main equipment performs well. We have different types and lengths of hoses to guarantee we can reach the pools of water or targeted disposal point while maintaining the right lift capacity. We also have carpet and squeegee wands to ensure we do not damage surfaces when wet vacuuming to extract water.

Damages can happen when trying to save property after a water spill. Call SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland at (954) 973-4130 to manage the restoration of an incident at your property, making it, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Can Handle all of Your Coral Springs Emergency Restoration Needs

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

Fire Damage Restoration

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

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

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

Mold Remediation

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

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

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

Water Damage Restoration

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

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

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

Storm Damage Restoration

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

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

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

We know that you have multiple choices in restoration services throughout South Florida. Still, our SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland team has the experience and the advanced equipment to help you 24/7.

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.
