Why Getting Prompt Water Damage Restoration in Naples Homes is Critical

6/28/2019 (Permalink)

Water Damage Why Getting Prompt Water Damage Restoration in Naples Homes is Critical Would you like Fungi as a new room mate?

Don’t delay, call SERVPRO today.

Water damage is not something anyone wants to deal with, but it is one of the most common forms of damage to homes. Whether it is caused by plumbing leaks, HVAC leaks, or overflowing sinks, it can be daunting and costly to fix your home after a water loss incident.

The way you handle water damage in your Naples home matters. When you notice water loss in your home, notify your insurance provider about it. All insurance firms offer coverage for different water damage situations, including burst pipes, water main breaks, and leakage from hot water tanks and washing machines. SERVPRO remediation specialists can work with your insurance provider to help you file your claim and minimize your out-of-pocket expenses.

Water intrusion in a home can cause mold to develop, and this is the reason why removing water and moisture quickly is crucial. If water and moisture remain in your home for an extended period, conditions can also develop where fungi and bacteria grow rapidly and cause health issues. High humidity leads to higher concentrations of fungi and bacteria in the air, and warmer temperatures allow microbes to reproduce faster. Clean water can turn into gray or black water the longer it sits in a home.

Beginning the water cleanup process as soon as possible is essential because porous materials, including sheetrock and wood, can absorb water. The water might also seep under the substrate of flooring. Our SERVPRO technicians use extraction equipment like wet/dry vacuums and pumps to remove excess water and continue the water damage mitigation process with applied structural drying (ASD) to prevent mold infestation.

We also use water detection equipment like thermal cameras, moisture sensors and penetrating moisture meters with long Teflon coated probes to find hidden moisture that could lead to rusted pipes, mold growth, and other issues. We also perform replacement or repairs of structural elements like damaged drywall and rotted wood with the guidance of a homeowner and the insurance adjuster.

When your home has water damage, SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island is ready to help you restore it to its original condition. We can assist you regardless of what caused the problem. You can reach us around the clock at (239) 302-5700. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Safely Storing your Contents after Major Fire Damage in Naples

A major fire is something that most homeowners do not want to think about, but unfortunately, these events do happen. You can rest assured we have a tried and tested formula to help residents overcome significant events in a time efficient manner. Severe damages could result in structural weaknesses, and therefore you may be relocated while work is undertaken involving re-modelers, restoration technicians, and professional movers.

Homeowners who need their property restored after significant fire damage in Naples can rely on us to guide them through the process from start to finish. Our team has experience in performing restoration works on a property and the resources to get the job done in a time efficient manner. We understand that these are stressful events and communicate with you throughout to ensure a smooth operation.

When the scale of damage falls under a severe category, it is often necessary to remove all contents from the structure. Removing contents allows remodelers access to walls, ceilings, or floor that otherwise may be difficult to reach. SERVPRO recognizes that your possessions may carry sentimental value and can transport them to an external storage location while vital restoration work is underway.

A move out process begins with a careful inventory of all your possessions. Our personnel are professionals at packing and cleaning but can liaise with a third-party mover on your behalf to ensure professional loading and transportation. To avoid scratching or other cosmetic damages, our team can utilize furniture blankets, padding, and strapping. Items are inventoried onsite during packing and checked during unloading to account for any fire damages that could occur during transportation.

When a pack out occurs, SERVPRO communicates with you every step of the way. We can inform you of the scheduled start date, projected move date, when the professional movers are contacted and the actual move date. We understand that these situations are stressful and have found that consistent communication throughout has helped our customers come to terms with an emotionally trying situation.

Experience, trust, and communication are essential to our move out procedure. Contact SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 to arrange yours.

Naples Residences, Mold Infestations, and the Remediation by SERVPRO--The Smart Choice!

Why SERVPRO Naples Residences, Mold Infestations, and the Remediation by SERVPRO--The Smart Choice! SERVPRO Remediates Mold in Your Naples Home, and then-Ensures a Safe and Healthy Indoor Air Quality

Why You Should Choose SERVPRO for Mold Removal in Your Naples Home

With its location on Florida’s west coast, Naples residents are almost used to the effects of the storms that strike us each year. What many of them miss are the after-effects with improper water removal, or when a flooded area like an attic is not suitably dried out. In these situations, mold can cause as much damage when it grows unchecked.
 
So why should you choose SERVPRO response teams for mold removal in Naples? Our technicians train extensively to not only remove mold but remove the source of moisture that caused the growth to begin initially. They use the latest equipment and methods to ensure every home is free of active, growing mold when they finish.
 
The SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians (AMRT) start by finding the full extent of the growth and the water source that allows the first spores to develop from their inert state and grow. Once discovered, team members remove the water and dry the immediate area to stop further mold growth. If there is a leak, our technicians can perform minor repairs to pipes, connections, and even replace hoses.
 
Next, they remove the mold. When possible, technicians clean surfaces using cloths and sponges. For thicker layers, they use an anti-microbial agent to break them up for easier removal. If the mold already began to penetrate the surface of roof support or other wood beam, SERVPRO technicians use wire brushes to break up the mold. If needed, they can also use hand or power sanders to remove the top layer and dig out the mold. With our Mold Remediation Contractor License #: MRSR2994, we can even complete the rebuilding, "Like it never even happened."
 
Finally, technicians vacuum up the mold spores, dust, and other particles. Each vacuum they use contains a HEPA filter which is designed to capture almost every mold spore off a surface. Attached hoses direct everything out of the home and into a catch bag to prevent accidentally spreading the mold to unaffected parts of the house.
 
Our goal at SERVPRO of Naples / Marcos Island is to restore each home to safe, livable condition. If you suspect or see there is mold in your home, contact us today at (239) 302-5700 for an inspection and free estimate. We are here for you.

We Are Available 24/7 For Your Marco Island Water Damage Restoration

Water Damage We Are Available 24/7 For Your Marco Island Water Damage Restoration Our highly certified and trained water restoration technicians use advanced water inspection, extraction, and drying equipment to restore your home.

Left Your Bathroom Faucet Running? Call SERVPRO!

All it takes for disaster to strike in your home is one moment of forgetfulness. A mistake as simple as leaving your faucet on can cause water damage to your bathroom tile. Some types of tile are more susceptible to water exposure than others, which is why it is important to contact professionals who are experienced with the restoration of many different types of tile.

Professionals from SERVPRO can mitigate water damage to tile in your Marco Island home. Restoring tile takes special care, and our technicians can perform an inspection of water damaged tile to determine the best course of action. Asphalt and vinyl tile is relatively easy to clean and may only require basic cleaning. However, in more extreme cases, these tiles can be loosened from the underlying sub flooring and may require drying before being reattached. SERVPRO techs can, additionally, use moisture meters to inspect your sub flooring to look for hidden floor damage that may be related to tile damage. If excess moisture is discovered in your sub flooring, we can deploy air movers and dehumidifiers to remove moisture. Unfortunately, tile may have to be removed in order for effective drying, and, in some cases, it may be cheaper to replace this tile than dry it.

If you instead have concrete or ceramic tile, then it is unlikely that you will need replacement tile. However, both of these types of tiles come with their own set of issues. Concrete tile is typically porous and easily flakes off paint making it susceptible to mold growth when exposed to water. Fortunately, we have disinfectants capable of dealing with mold should it appear in your bathroom. Ceramic tile, on the other hand, is normally unaffected by contact with water. However, water damage to the tile grouting and sub flooring can cause the tile to shift and warp, making a reinstallation of tile necessary.

If you are having issues with your tile at home due to forgetfulness, then don’t hesitate to call SERVPRO of Naples/Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 to begin the consultation process.

How Small Appliances Cause Fire Damage in Naples

Fire Damage How Small Appliances Cause Fire Damage in Naples SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island knows how to remove the smoke and soot from your fire damaged home.

Repairing Fire Damage After a Naples Appliance Malfunction

Electrical appliances of all kinds are a part of everyday life, and we expect our devices to work reliably. However, a malfunctioning power cord on your blow dryer can cause more than potentially singed hair: it can leave fire damage and strong odors in your bathroom that can be tough to eliminate on your own.  

When an appliance malfunction leads to fire damage in your Naples home, certified SERVPRO technicians are available to assist you 24/7. Our focus on restoration over replacement means that our team is committed to mitigating damage and bringing your bathroom back to its pre-fire condition. Fire travels quickly, so we can also evaluate and clean other areas of your home that have been affected by smoke and soot.  

The first step after determining the type of smoke and soot damage is cleaning surfaces that have been affected by it. Porous surfaces such as bathroom wallpaper can be more challenging to clean due to their ability to absorb smoke particles and odors, especially if the bathroom was steamy after a hot shower during the initial fire. We then clean bathroom vents filled with smoke or odor causing particles. Items in our arsenal for cleaning vents include a vacuum and filter system to pull contaminants from smoke out of HVAC systems, as well as agitating tools to coax out hard-to-reach dirt.  

Our SERVPRO technicians handle odor control with a variety of tools, including HEPA air scrubbers, to cleanse the air of foul odors. The HEPA filters on air scrubbers, made with activated carbon and potassium permanganate, can capture particles as small as .3 microns, significantly smaller than what the human eye can easily perceive. Once odor-causing particles are sucked up and taken through the HEPA filters, it is cycled back out as clean, air. In cases where one technique alone cannot eliminate air, multiple methods of odor elimination may be used, such as portable ozone machines.  

SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island is a leading name in disaster cleanup and restoration. If you need our services, call us today at (239) 302-5700.

Stormy Weather, Floods in Naples, and SERVPRO to the Rescue

4/23/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial Stormy Weather, Floods in Naples, and SERVPRO to the Rescue Don't Be Dogged by Closing Your Naples Spa due to Flooding--Call SERVPRO

Fixing Problems that Develop During Commercial Flood Damage in Naples Spas

When people visit spas, they expect a clean, serene environment where they can relax as they receive services. A single flooding incident can ruin your spa by dumping contaminants, soiling contents and causing other problems such as persistent bad odor. We offer professional flood mitigation services in Naples that can help you deal with a flooding incident "Like it never even happened."
 
Cases of flood damage in Naples spas are likely to involve widespread soiling because of the variety of fabrics available including bedspreads, privacy dividers, and draperies among others. Such materials trap soils easily whether the flooding happens through a roof breach or rising ground water from a local tropical disturbance. Our SERVPRO technicians spray EPA-registered disinfectants in the affected areas. We also use professional cleaning agents to remove soils, along with shovels and squeegees, whatever it takes!
 
Apart from affecting fabrics, floodwaters also soil materials used on floors and other surfaces. Cleaning such surfaces to regain their preloss sheen is essential to satisfy the expectations of your clients. Our SERVPRO technicians use different equipment to achieve the desired results. We use pressure washers or multi-surface scrubbers to remove soils efficiently.
 
The beautiful finishes on the floors of your spa are a big attraction for the clients. A flooding incident can ruin them through moisture action or staining. For example, wooden floors can warp, crown or rot when they absorb significant amounts of moisture. The water can also penetrate beneath tiled surfaces causing problems such as mold. Mold stains surfaces and causes bad odor, which can ruin the tranquility your clients expect. Our SERVPRO technicians use moisture meters and sensors to check moisture levels in different materials affected by the incident. Depending on the results we take several steps including creating a closed drying system to restore the facility to its preloss state. All services include a closing deodorizing process to restore the desired ambiance to the facility.
 
To deal with flood-related problems in your Marco Island, Naples Manor or Old Marco Junction area spas, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island to help. You can reach us at (239) 302-5700 any time. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

A gorgeous place to live and to visit right here.
