SERVPRO Professionals Can Return Businesses in Naples to a Clean, Customer-Ready Condition

Do Owners Need Professional Restoration with Minor Damage?
Absolutely! In the haste to reopen after recent events, Naples business owners have sometimes found themselves with another disaster. When it happens, SERVPRO technicians are ready to help recover from problems such as getting smoke residues off the walls of a dining room to cleaning and disinfecting kitchen surfaces and food storage lockers.

What Tools Are Needed to Make a Restaurant Safe for Customers Again?
Commercial fire restoration in Naples begins with cleaning and, if needed, replacing every surface affected by the fire. Technicians use:
    •    Cleaners – We have an extensive inventory of anti-bacterial and deodorizing cleaning agents. Both are needed to not just clean smoke residue particles off tabletops or food-prep counters, but to also eliminate possible health threats and pungent odors that accompany them.
    •    Tools and Equipment – Technicians use sponges to clean walls and floors, and long-handled squeegees for ceilings. If residues penetrated wood surfaces, they have the option to use powered agitators with a cleaning agent, sanders to remove top layers of beams and other support structures, and foggers that generate a cloud of cleaning particles that deeply penetrate surfaces to eliminate odor-causing particles.

What Does SERVPRO Do to Bring Back the Original Appearance?
To finish the restoration, our administration staff works with insurance companies and owners to get the most out of the policy to return the business to its pre-fire appearance. This includes sourcing the original paint color from photos and other sources to apply to ceilings and walls. If tables and chairs are restorable, technicians use air movers and special brushes to return each piece to its pre-fire appearance.

Even if your business has suffered only minor damage from smoke, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 today. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster and can help you quickly reopen your business.

How Can Soda Blasting Help With Mold Damage In My Naples Warehouse??

9/14/2020 (Permalink)

Mold Growth on Stained Plaster Wall Close-Up When we are finished, your business will be Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

Naples Business Owners Need Effective Mold Damage Help

If your Naples business includes a warehouse, then that building is vital to your business operation. Whether you use your warehouse to pack food, produce car parts, or send out educational materials, you need the building to be safe and fit for purpose.

Mold damage to your Naples warehouse is frustrating. Mold looks and may smell terrible, and if you do not treat it effectively, it can quickly spread.

Why is mold hard to clean?
Mold is challenging to clean because:
    •    Not all mold damage is immediately visible
    •    Household cleaners (especially bleach) can make it worse
    •    Mold spores are microscopic and can quickly spread to other parts of your warehouse and start new colonies

What is soda blasting?
Soda blasting uses tiny baking soda particles (yes, the same thing used in making cakes!) to gently scrub surfaces. SERVPRO technicians aim the blasting machine nozzle at the surface, and the machine uses pressure to pelt the wood or brick or other surface with soda particles.? Soda blasting is a similar process to sandblasting, but the media we use is softer and less abrasive.

Why is soda blasting helpful for mold damage?
Soda blasting is ideal for mold damage because:
    •    The particles are soft enough that they do not damage the surface underneath
    •    Blasting takes less time than manual scrubbing, which means you can get back to business faster
    •    Soda blasting is an environmentally sensitive option
    •    Baking soda is a natural deodorizer, so it helps fight mold odors while we work

What happens after soda blasting?
Soda blasting is just one part of the mold remediation process. Our technicians will clean away all traces of the blast medium afterward and set up air scrubbers to further deodorize the premises and remove mold spores and traces of baking soda from the air.
We also monitor moisture levels before and after soda blasting to help us identify hidden mold damage or areas with the potential for further fungal growth. We dry those areas to reduce the risk of new colonies forming.

When we are finished, your business will be Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned. If you have mold in your warehouse, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700.

Can The Odors Be Removed After A Fire in My Naples Home?

9/4/2020 (Permalink)

A chair with soot and fire damage. Soot and smoke can take over your Naples home after a fire, let SERVPRO help you with that.

Smoke Residue and Soot Leave Lingering Odors – SERVPRO Can Have Your Home Smelling Fresh and Clean Once Again

Residential fires make up more than one-fourth of reported fires. The most common causes of house fires include heating, cooking, electrical, intentional, and smoking-related fires. While every situation in Naples is different when it comes to fire intensity and damage, one thing they all have in common is the nasty odors that are a result of smoke and soot.

Can I Get Rid of The Smell Myself?

Many people think merely removing charred and smoke damaged items gets rid of the smell. Smoke residue permeates material throughout the house. Soot can settle into the tiniest cracks and crevices. Removing the pungent odor left after a house fire involves a multifaceted process. Fire damage restoration in Naples is better left to a professional company that has the experience and expertise in mitigating such situations.

Locating the Source of the Odors

SERVPRO has fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) that are well trained. They are also Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified. They know where the smells are most absorbed, such as carpet, ductwork, and insulation. Painted walls, window treatments, and upholstered furniture hold smoke odor as well. Other things that can hold foul odors include:

  • Charred items – These need to be removed as soon as possible as they contribute significantly to the terrible smells. 
  • Insulation – A specialized vacuum is used to remove the affected insulation.
  • Ductwork – If the HVAC system operates after the fire, it can spread smoke and soot rapidly.
  • Water damaged items – These can develop mold and contribute to the odors circulating throughout the house.

Odor Control is Vital to the Restoration Process

Improving air quality means capturing airborne particulates. Soot particles are microscopic, and it requires special equipment to remove those particles. HEPA vacuums, HEPA filters and air scrubbers can be used. Another way to keep soot from spreading is to provide physical containment in places such as vents and doorways. 

If the blaze involved firefighters and hoses, water extraction is dealt with right away. The cleanup of the charred remains takes place next. This can involve both structural components and the content of the home. Before new building and restoration can begin, odor control is required. If not mitigated before this step, the new materials pick up the same smell. Another reason for eradicating odors first is you cannot build or paint over them. 

What is Used for Odor Control and Removal?

Our technicians use a variety of equipment and procedures to remove odors from the home. These include:

  • Time-release gel pellets if the problem is mild
  • Deodorizing cleaning agents
  • Hydroxyl generators to capture and neutralize soot in the air
  • Thermal fogging for strong odors
  • Sealants before painting
  • Deep cleaning of upholstery and carpets
  • Ductwork cleaning

Clothing, linens, and drapes may require off-site cleaning to remove the smells. Dry cleaning and home machine washing may not take care of the problem. Not every circumstance requires all of the above. Our technicians assess each circumstance and determine the proper combination of equipment and procedures to remove fire damage smells from your residence. 

Beyond Odors – Comprehensive Fire Restoration

If your residence has been affected by a fire, it can turn your world upside down. You may find yourself displaced and facing the loss of much of your house and content. Even a small fire can disrupt your daily life. At SERVPRO, we understand how devastating both situations can be to you and your family. We provide fire damage restoration that deals with your situation from start to finish. Our goal is to return your home to you, so it is, “Like it never even happened.” Our crews are committed to making that happen. We are locally bonded and licensed.

We work with you and your insurance company to take as much of the burden of restoration of your shoulders as we can. You may only need a general cleaning and odor removal because of a small fire. Another situation may involve total restoration to the structure and the content. From emergency mitigation such as boarding up to repairing damaged walls, our technicians are there to meet your needs.

Why Is Testing Necessary for Simple Water Damage Repair in Naples?

Flooding in the kitchen and livingroom Our construction division follows mitigation and remediation efforts with water damage repair and rebuilding to make it “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Knows You Cannot Count on Simplicity During Any Water Damage Repair in Naples -- We Have the Technology Needed to Detect and Manage Surprises

The disruption caused by water damage can pose a real inconvenience for homeowners in Naples. We understand that you desire a quick assessment and a fast repair turnaround. At the same time, we know that if we skip fundamental water and moisture detection and metering before planning and completing a project, we risk leaving your home incompletely restored, with the potential for long-term and incredibly destructive damage.

What Is the Purpose of Pre-Project Planning Testing?

Water damage repair in your Naples home involves the fluids you see and the fluids migrating away from the initial leak, overflow, or spill. Standing water can disappear quickly, leading to the erroneous belief that the crisis has passed. Professional restoration technicians receive robust training in finding the pathways where water flowed away and perhaps pooled and collected in building cavities. Permeable building materials also quietly absorb the water, putting in motion progressive deterioration, which is often not apparent in the early stages. Finding and removing the water and drying out wet materials is crucial to repairing your home after a loss.

How Do Water Repair Experts Locate and Remove Hidden Liquids and Absorbed Moisture?

SERVPRO crews use sensitive devices to find water. We also measure the moisture levels to provide data vital to determining and monitoring progress toward research-based drying goals. The tools employed include:

Infrared imaging cameras
Recording temperature fluctuations that when read by trained technicians indicate the location of trapped liquid water and significantly wet structural components.

Moisture detectors
Find and map the presence of moisture through repeated testing.

Moisture meters
Measure the levels of moisture absorbed by permeable materials, and also permit for monitoring of drying process through periodic remeasuring

Water removal techniques can include planned controlled demolition to release water and open up wet cavities. We remove the lower sections of wet drywall as “flood cuts,” and cut, punch, or drill holes in other materials to drain water.

Our construction division follows mitigation and remediation efforts with water damage repair and rebuilding to make it “Like it never even happened,” completing the restoration cycle. Reach SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island 24/7 at (239) 302-5700.

What are Common Damages to Look for After Storm Damage in Naples?

8/12/2020 (Permalink)

flooding in the kitchen We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster!

SERVPRO techs know that the damage you can see in your Naples home may not be all there is to address

When intense storms come through in Naples, they can leave behind different kinds of problems to clean up. In many cases, it is an excellent decision to bring in professional help because consumer-grade shop vacs and fans standardly used in homes do not possess the power to dry a structure and contents as rapidly as needed to avoid problems such as spreading water damage from wicking into sheetrock or under the flooring. Additionally, temporary repairs may be required, such as tarping over a roof to halt any further rain from entering.

What Structural Hazards May Happen After Flood Damage?

When SERVPRO techs handle the cleanup of flood damage in Naples homes, the techs perform a double-layered scoping of the property that includes locating the migration paths of the water within the structure and identify any hazards that are present such as:
    •    Wet, sagging ceilings with the potential to collapse  
    •    Electrical shock hazards from outlets coming into contact with floodwater
    •    Slip and fall dangers are present anywhere slick flooring or a saturated subfloor is wet  
    •    Contaminated water can post a significant threat to come into contact with

What Does Safe Cleanup of Storm Damage Entail?

The technicians wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and ensure that structural hazards within the property get removed through the use of their controlled demolition actions. This action performs the dual purpose of not only eliminating dangerous situations but also opens up ceilings and walls for better airflow during the drying phase of the mitigation.

Because the restoration services can take time to extract the water and dry the structure, keeping out unauthorized individuals is necessary. SERVPRO technicians can board up windows, doors and put up yellow security tape to set clear boundaries around the job site.

The cleanup of flood damage needs to begin immediately, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 for fast, professional service for any size water problem in your home.

How Do I Choose Among Water Restoration Companies?

8/7/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO technician consulting with customer Our experienced technicians will arrive on scene within a few short hours after you make the call. We are always available.

SERVPRO trained and certified technicians show up fast and restore your Naples property from any size water damage.

When the unfortunate event happens, and you have water in your Naples home, there are a number of ways to narrow down your choice in restoration companies quickly such as:  

  • Is the restoration services team trained and certified?
  • Do the technicians use advanced equipment?
  • Can the company handle large-scale water loss?
  • Will the company work with my insurance company?

What Can Water Restoration Companies Do For Me?   

One of the most common ways a homeowner in Naples starts contacting water restoration companies is after a supply line break to an appliance or a pipe burst in the home. Even if the water gets turned off quickly, there can be a large amount of water left behind that needs cleanup before it seeps under floors, absorbs into the carpet, or gets wicked into the sheetrock. 

You can rely on SERVPRO technicians to:  

  • Move out articles if needed to a safe space during water cleanup
  • Careful attention paid during mitigation to ensure nothing gets missed
  • A detailed report gets given about the actions taken, so everyone is on the same page

Homeowners that have a shop vac can get some of the water up. Still, it is impossible to know everywhere the water moved within the home without the use of devices specifically designed for tracking moisture. SERVPRO technicians have a diverse array of water extraction equipment that includes weighted extractor heads to push the water out of carpet and cushions. Squeegee and wand handles that assist on tile floors and to get under cabinets or along baseboards to ensure the maximum amount of water gets removed. 

How the Drying Happens Makes a Difference 

Drying equipment is another difference among restoration service companies. SERVPRO has access to a vast selection of drying equipment so they can deploy a large number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry a structure and contents very quickly. 

Cleaning After a Water Damaging Incident

Once the property is dry, it is vital to clean the surfaces to ensure they are left disinfected and sanitized. This is because even clean water can contain bacteria after a short period, and the SERVPRO techs make sure the loss area does not harbor any unwanted guests post-mitigation through testing to determine the presence of any bacteria or microbial elements. 

Handling Mold Remediation 

In cases where the water loss happened due to a slow leak or mold gets discovered during the cleanup process, the restoration services company must know how to handle this type of situation. Spraying bleach on visible mold colonies appears to kill them, but it does nothing to address the elements that are sustaining colony growth. SERVPRO technicians have the training and hold certification in mold remediation #MRSR2994. They know how to perform abatement safely and what equipment to use to ensure the spores do not spread to other places in the home. The techs also investigate to determine if any causes such as poor ventilation or lack of a vapor barrier contributed to the infestation and can suggest any needed repairs. The techs have access to a host of antimicrobial cleaning agents as well as sealants to use on areas where colony removal has taken place to ensure no return.  

Can the Company Help With Damaged Electronics?  

A mistake that gets made during a water loss situation by homeowners is the testing of electronics. If a computer or television got wet or has signs of water collection inside, it should not get tested by turning it on. This can result in a shock or permanent damage to the item. Whenever possible, SERVPRO tries to save both the structure and contents from needing replacement. The electronics in the home can get damaged to the point of no return after prolonged exposure to water or a highly humid environment. The technicians can arrange for a certified professional to inspect and repair any consumer electronics to see if they are safe for reuse. To mitigate potential water damage to electronic devices, we can thoroughly wipe down and dry exterior covers.

Will the Property Be Secure During Mitigation?  

In cases where you cannot remain on-site during the cleanup, the technicians board up windows and doors as needed and set up security tape to be sure that unauthorized individuals do not enter the home during the restoration process.

Call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700. We are proud to serve the local area as one of the trusted water restoration companies that can handle any size water loss in a home.

Breathe Clean Air Again in your Naples Home by Calling a Professional Fire Restoration Technician 

It may be surprising that your Naples condo now smells like fire when the actual incident did not take place in your home. Many homeowners find out that smoke travels swiftly through ventilation systems and permeates clothes, carpet, furniture, and many other surfaces. Rather than attempting to clean your home with a store-bought cleaning solution, allow a fire restoration technician to review your needs and offer a solution to making your home smell fresh again.

In Naples, fire restoration services are at the core of our business.

How can I deodorize my home?

Deodorizing is not as easy as it sounds. Most of us tend to purchase aromatic sprays, candles, and plug-ins to help us fight foul smells, but a fire may require something more robust. Our SERVPRO team investigates the smoke path so we can address it from the point of origin and throughout your home. A crucial task is controlling the spread of the smell through your air conditioning and heating vents, which we can achieve by creating barriers and adding deodorizing elements to the ducts. Some solutions can sound simple, such as deodorizing pellets, whereas others are more sophisticated. Some options available to our team include-

  • Air scrubbers which help us filter the air and clean it
  • Thermal fogging, which allow us to spray deodorizing solutions throughout your home

What Makes Fire-Related Smells So Difficult to Eliminate?

7/10/2020 (Permalink)

woman covering her nose When fire damage happens, contact SERVPRO of Naples/Marco Island at (239) 302-5700. No matter how big or small the problem.

Fire-Related Smells in Your Naples Home Are Hard to Neutralize Partly Because Odorous Particles in Smoke Travel Everywhere and Penetrate Materials Deeply.

When materials burn in your Naples residence, a chemical reaction called “combustion” is taking place. This is the process by which solid materials, acted on by heat, are turned into gases. During the process, materials break down, and their components combine with oxygen to form new gaseous compounds. Since this reaction is not entirely efficient, not all solids convert to gas, and waste is left over. That results in smoke-filled with odorous solid particles and surface residues. Depending on the materials burned, these smell-producing substances are of varying degrees of difficulty to clean up. Different methods are usually required to effectively remove or neutralize each kind of odorous material.         

How Do Smoke Particles Make Deodorization a Difficult Task? 

Naples fire damage remediation companies like SERVPRO understand the process by which fire-related odors develop. They also know how the nature of smoke makes their job more of a challenge. The odorous particles in smoke go everywhere the smoke goes. That usually includes the highest reaches of your home and all of its most difficult-to-access areas. Some of the troublesome places smoke deposits smelly particles are:

HVAC system ducts

Attic rafters and insulation

Hidden and hard-to-reach sections of ceilings and walls

High fixtures

Irreplaceable possessions

The clouds of particulate matter generated by fires usually rise and coat HVAC ducts with a layer of soot. If not properly cleaned, your ventilation system circulates odorous particles throughout your home long after a fire has been remediated. 

Smoke particles especially impact porous materials and make them extremely hard to clean. The heat of a fire opens up the pores of these materials around your residence, making it easier for smelly smoke particles to penetrate them deeply. Once the fire ends and the surrounding environment cools, the pores contract and trap the odorous substances inside. Afterward, the temperature never rises enough to let it all escape back out of the affected structural elements and contents. However, when it does get warm and humid, strong odors often reappear.   

What Are the Different Types of Fire-Related Residues?

As your home burns, waste from the combustion process results in surface soot residues and airborne smoke particles. Smelly soot residues remain around the site where materials burn and smoke travels throughout your home, depositing odorous soot particles. In general, there are four primary types of residues:

Wet smoke

Dry smoke

Protein smoke

Fuel oil smoke

Each fire produces one or more of these waste products, depending on the type of materials burned, the amount of oxygen present, and the rate at which the fire burns. Protein and fuel oil smoke residues result solely from the materials burned, namely animal proteins and fuel oil. Wet smoke residues are created by slow-burning fires that are deprived of oxygen and consume synthetics. Conversely, dry smoke residues often develop due to oxygen-rich, fast-burning fires that consume natural materials.

What Are the Challenges of Cleaning Up Soot Residues?

In SERVPRO’s experience, each residue presents its unique challenges. Wet smoke residues tend to be the most difficult to clean up because of how they are created. These residues are formed by slow-burning fires that linger in an area for a long time, trap smoke near the heat source, and pick up more liquid components. Wet smoke residues, therefore, usually produce large, greasy/oily, easily smearable particles. Moreover, since the fire continues in one place for an extended time, its smelly products are more easily able to permeate materials thoroughly. Protein smoke residues are extremely odorous and can sometimes be invisible. They require a lot of work because, many times, your entire house needs to be fully cleaned to remove the smells of these residues. 

Other fire wastes, like dry soot and fuel oil smoke residue, are much easier to remediate. Dry soot is often less odorous and comes in the form of small dry particles. These usually do not penetrate surfaces and are easily wiped away. Fuel oil residues mostly just present a problem when they are dry and crusty. If restoration technicians are not careful, they could scratch surfaces as they are wiping these residues away.

How Can SERVPRO Neutralize Fire-Related Odors?

SERVPRO technicians are experts at handling the unwanted smells of fire damage. Some of the methods and tools they employ to neutralize odors are:

Clearing ventilation ducts with HVAC cleaning systems

Using air scrubbers, ozone machines, and Vaportek units to deodorize interior air

Deodorizing and sealing structural elements, HVAC systems, and difficult-to-access areas with ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers

Treating carpets and upholstery with injection devices and deodorants

Cleaning up greasy residues with wet cleaning methods, using solutions like tri-sodium phosphate (TSP)

Using dry sponges to remove non-grease residues

Using these advanced tools and techniques, SERVPRO is often able to make your home smell like it never even experienced a fire.

Why Are the Contents of My Naples Living Room in a Pile After a Fire?

SERVPRO technicians can clean up the aftermath of a fire in your Naples home

It can be shocking to view your home for the first time immediately after a fire. During the fire, one of the techniques firefighters use is to douse flaming items with water and move them to the center of the room. Each time something gets added to the pile, water is also added. Afterward, there is a pile of room contents and structural elements such as sheetrock that gets saturated in the center of the room. It may not look like the Naples home could come back from this, but with professional restoration services, the potential is there.

Are Furnishings Covered in Soot Beyond Fire Damage Restoration?

SERVPRO techs handling fire damage restoration in Naples homes, approach the cleanup carefully to ensure the best recovery methods get chosen based on the item getting cleaned and the nature of the smoke residues getting removed. When working on post-fire loss furniture, some things that weigh in on the potential for reuse include:
    •    The construction materials that make up the furniture
    •    If the piece has water damage
    •    Whether the joints of the furniture have heat damage

After testing the residue to determine if it needs a solvent-based proprietary cleaning agent that will not mar the surface to remove the smoke damage, the techs carefully clean the furniture and save the homeowner the cost of replacement.

How Do I Find a Contractor to Rebuild My Home After a Fire Loss?

When SERVPRO techs handle the restoration services, they have a general contractor license #CBC1261730 that means the techs can also handle any of the following tasks after mitigation efforts complete such as:
    •    Repairs and replacement to walls and ceilings
    •    Carpet cleaning
    •    Flooring installation
    •    Painting and any task needed to complete the renovation on the fire loss area
