Why SERVPRO Naples Property Owners Understand the Professional SERVPRO Service for Water Extraction Why SERVPRO of Naples? The Best Equipment and Crews for Water Removal and Restoration

Why SERVPRO’s Water Removal Services Deliver Premium Results in Naples

Residents of Naples hope to avoid the need for water mitigation in their homes. Unfortunately, circumstances sometimes conspire, a burst pipe or a window left open over a rainy weekend spreading water over your beautiful wood floors or soft, cozy carpeting. This kind of crisis does not quickly resolve with a DIY solution. The training and equipment a professional remediation company can bring to the task are why we offer our services.

It is not uncommon for water removal to be an immediate need in Naples. Water soaks into flooring as a natural course after a leak, spill, or another event exposes your home to significant amounts of moisture. The trick to getting the water out of your house is to match the tools and technique to the specifics of the problem. Our experience and commitment to updating our crew member’s certification in current water removal trends show why we are a solid choice when seeking water mitigation.

The first step we take when determining the proper approach to remove the water is a thorough inspection of the materials affected. Carpeting installed over non-hardwood or laminate floor responds well to in-place drying. The key is that the subfloor does not absorb or become distorted by the water. Our crew stops the migration of water using our truck-mounted extractors and then switches to weighted equipment to express as much of the water as possible. Professional experience is essential to prevent the carpet from delaminating, stretching, or tearing as we run the tools over the same area several times. This expertise is why SERVPRO delivers excellent results.

If hardwood is the primary or subfloor, we use pumps and extractors to remove the standing water. Then we choose from other professional techniques and tools to suction the residual moisture from the planks and the under flooring. Our use of drying mats accelerates the removal. Crew members place, secure, and move the mats as needed, employing negative pressure to draw the water from between and beneath the planks. The competence our employees demonstrate while using the mats proves why SERVPRO invests in this innovative and efficient equipment.

More efficiency during the final applied structural drying phase illustrates why  SERVPRO’s comprehensive water removal effort is needed. The faster we go from water-soaked to normal moisture levels translates into customer satisfaction for our superior outcomes. "Like it never even happened."

Call us at (239) 302-5700 to schedule an appointment. Let us prove why SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island provides the best water removal results.

Mold Remediation Don't Worry Our Team Is To The Rescue When You Discover A Hidden Mold Infestation In Your Naples Condo When you locate mold damage in your condo, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700.

Finding Mold Damage During Repairs And Remodeling Of Your Naples Condo Can Halt The Project

Working quickly on any project in your Naples condominium means that you can see and benefit from the efforts all that much more sooner. Many projects have some problem here or there, and while this is normal, it can also create stress and slower than the expected conclusion of the project.

Minor projects, such as removing a vanity can make your condo much more beautiful, but if your workers find mold damage in your Naples bathroom after removing the sink, it can stall the work. Experienced contractors know that installing the sink without removing the mold, your dwelling can steadily worsen. The majority of contractors concentrate only on remodeling and repair work on residential properties and small businesses and do not engage in mold damage remediation.

SERVPRO specialists can get the area involved free of mold and spores, apply a mold inhibitor, and check for close by areas to ensure that no other mold infestations exist. During our work, we also check to make sure that any sources of water allowing mold to proliferate gets shut off at the source.

Other areas in your condo that might succumb to mold, only to become discovered during repair work or another type of project include behind your refrigerator, dishwasher, or laundry facility, around your water heater, under some types of flooring, behind your tub surround or shower stall, and at the base of your toilet and bathtub.

To keep the area involved clean, we lay mats down to catch loosened mold particles. For spores that get released into the air, we catch these with air scrubbers. When we use negative air chambers, we use an air scrubber that directs the air outdoors, increasing the speed that the air becomes clean.

While we always strive to help our customers by remediating mold damage and restoring their homes, so things are “Like it never even happened,” during a repair or remodeling job, we hope to help you accomplish your main goal of improving things instead. With our help, your project can get back on schedule faster and finish with no more unexpected issues.

When you locate mold damage in your condo, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700. We serve the areas around Wagon Wheel, Fakahatchee, and Old Marco Junction.

Why SERVPRO Reliably Locates Sources Of Water Loss In Naples Manor Properties

Many times when our customers in Naples Manor experience damage from water or mold, the underlying cause of the problem involves an internal leak from a water line. These leaks can start small and remain undetected for a long time. Bursting open happens occasionally, but we can help you locate these sections of plumbing and rectify the situation.

When water damages your Naples Manor home, our SERVPRO technicians have the tools and experience to handle any size disaster. Our technicians can also repair any damage caused by the moisture that invaded your home's interior space. Repairs that shut off the water and seal up the plumbing correctly can help reduce your monthly water costs, as well, even if only slightly.

The process of locating leaky pipes, fittings, and loosened joints requires an infrared imaging camera. We continue to use this and our moisture meter reading equipment as we repair any damage that your home suffered because of the water loss. Infrared imaging equipment detects water losses because of the changes in temperature experienced in the area directly affected by the water. Each moisture meter reading gives us a percentage of moisture held or retained by porous and absorbent materials.

When we detect water loss, drying the home becomes a necessity. After shutting off all sources of invasive and lost water, we can begin protecting your home from damage by water and microorganisms. We compare the percentages of moisture found in materials to acceptable amounts that typically occur in similar materials, according to industry standards, and work to reduce the elevated amounts discovered in your home down to more acceptable percentages.

Water loss, even small, minute amounts, can lead to not only losses in your utility budget, but also damage to your home. Our experts work with you as your partner in detecting such deficits in your plumbing and repair them. More extensive problems, such as sudden line breaks and ruptured pipes require a licensed plumber, and we have several in the area whom we know for their reliability, expertise, and honesty. When needed, we can contact one for you to make the entire process smoother and reduce the number of interruptions your family experiences.

SERVPRO is Only One Call Away When Commercial Fire Strikes!

Commercial SERVPRO is Only One Call Away When Commercial Fire Strikes! With the help of SERVPRO, your store will be restored "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO - Remediating Commercial Fire Damage To Marco Island Businesses


Fires in Marco Island businesses usually end quickly. The sprinklers kick in automatically and put out any open flames almost as rapidly as they formed in the first place. Most of the damage comes from the residues left behind by the smoke and soot that spread through the structure much further than the heat and flames.

The key to removing commercial fire damage from a Marco Island card and stationary supply store is to do it quickly before it becomes permanent. That is why SERVPRO maintains a 24-hour, response team to meet every requirement, even when the call comes in at three in the morning.

The moment our team arrives on-site, they start with a quick inspection of the facility. The inspector begins at the origin point of the fire and works their way out to determine how far it moved through the building. As they trace the smoke path, other team members determine what types of residues they have to clean and remove. Multiple types are common. Each one depends on the material how hot it burned.

As the team identifies the residues, they also determine the affected surfaces. While a lot of paper products can be damaged by the sprinklers, much of it can be cleaned and returned to inventory if the residue can be brushed or wiped away with no more moisture. Other surfaces require different cleaning methods. For fabric covered furniture, SERVPRO technicians may need a brush or other agitation device and a chemical cleaner to remove soot and smoke residues.

For most items, team members can use a variety of sponges or dry cloths wipe down the surfaces. They do this first to hopefully preclude further soaking items that already absorbed water from the sprinklers or efforts from firefighters. With very thick or sticky residues, they can use a mild cleaning agent to break them up for easier removal. If there is a concern about soaking the item, technicians have the option to use a vacuum to break them up and remove them.

Finally, team members dispose of all residues they cleaned and also dispose of property too damaged by the residues or water for restoration. Every disposal is in accordance with Florida and EPA regulations.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources


Our goal at SERVPRO of Naples / Marcos Island is to help you reopen your business to customers as quickly as we can bring it back to a clean and safe state. If you need us, we are here for you. Call us today at (239) 302-5700 to start the process.

How Our Technicians Restore Your Miles City Home After A Chimney Fire

10/30/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage How Our Technicians Restore Your Miles City Home After A Chimney Fire Even if your chimneys are clean blazes can still ignite inside of them.

Fire Damage Specialists In Miles City Talk About Problems With Chimneys

House fires can sometimes happen fast and can burn much of your Miles City home very quickly. Hundreds of thousands of homes suffered fire damage in the country each year. Out of those it is estimated that over 25,000 fires are caused by chimneys igniting. Chimney fires account for around $125 million in property damages each year. Many chimney fires ignite by excessive soot meaning that the number one cause of this type of fire damage is the failure to regularly clean fireplaces and chimneys.

However, even if your chimneys are clean blazes can still ignite inside of them. Once flames from inside a stack they get extremely hot and can cause excessive fire damage to your Miles City property. Once the inside metal gets hot the wood around the chimney can start to burn. These hot flames can then spread to other parts of your structure.

If the fire is extinguished quickly, it is possible that the damage is minimal. Sometimes the only problem present is smoke coming from the source of the fire and coating surfaces inside your house with soot residues. These soils can deteriorate finished surfaces and contaminate the air with burnt aromas. When mitigating issues associated with smoke, our SERVPRO technicians utilize a variety of techniques. Some surfaces get cleaned best with dry methods, and others need scrubbing with powerful chemicals.

In other situations, the fire spreads so fast that it burns and chars structural components before it gets put out. When this happens, our SERVPRO team must determine what items are burnt so severely that they must get removed and what items can be saved with mitigation procedures. During some projects, sections of the building's structure must be taken out and rebuilt entirely. There are also other cases where some structural components can be saved by sanding off the charred material and sealing the wood with a specialized paint.

Most mitigation projects dealing with burnt materials require a combination of both smoke removal and structural restoration. If you ever have a chimney fire at your home, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 any time of the day.

Water Damage Don't Recline on Your Miles City Water Damaged Furniture Until it is Professionally Cleaned Without proper drying procedures, water can ruin furniture. SERVPRO has the expertise to help restore your water damaged furniture..

Understanding Moisture Impact on Upholstered Furniture In Miles City After Water Cleanup

Research shows that 250 gallons of water jet out of a 1/8 inch crack in your pipe. Besides a crack in your plumbing, there are other causes of water damage in your Miles City home. They include a leaky roof and a broken washing machine hose. If the problem goes unchecked in half an hour or more, soaking occurs on your carpet, rugs, furniture, and hardwood floors. When water infiltrates your home, calling water cleanup technicians can prevent further damage. In your home, we use water extraction equipment to remove the water. Afterward, we turn on the air movers and dehumidifiers to dry. However, water and moisture exposed your furniture to damage. Here is how moisture affects upholstered furniture.

Before water cleanup in your Miles City home commences, SERVPRO experts inspect your home. Even if the level of water is barely high up the furniture legs, the furniture legs can stain your rugs and carpets. In such a case, you have an added problem. Carpet cleaners use the hot water extraction method to remove stains and kill germs. When it comes to your stained carpet, it is near impossible to remove furniture stains, especially if the carpet has dried with the stain on it.

The composition of wood stain is solvent, binder, and pigment. Since the solvent is petroleum distillate, it makes it difficult to remove after your carpet is stained.

During drying, SERVPRO water cleanup technicians use air movers in your home. This equipment pumps in the hot air causing the water in your carpets and rugs to evaporate. Since your furniture is in place, the moisture can bleed the cover. If the cover sags, your carpet can be stained.

Another moisture effect on your upholstered furniture is rust. The upholstered buttons have metal backings. When exposed to moisture, the process of oxidation begins which leads to rust.

The framing joints relax when exposed to moisture because of the weakening of the glue brought about by swelling of the wood. To strengthen the joints, you need to re-apply the glue.

SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island responds fast to all sizes of water damage disaster. To have your home restored to the pre-damaged condition, call our 24/7 emergency line at (239) 302-5700.
