How Can My St. Petersburg Office Building Get Dried Efficiently?

7/30/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Equipment and technicians After your business suffers water damage, you need a team of professionals to assist with cleanup. Call SERVPRO right away! We are always available.

The equipment used for drying and extraction is only part of the water mitigation process; the rest relies on the education and experience of our SERVPRO professionals responding. 

Water loss incidents can be a destructive force in your St. Petersburg office building, especially when sensitive materials, documents, furniture, and other areas fall victim. Mitigation is an effort to reduce the overall loss that your business experiences when water loss incidents occur. These services must get started as soon as possible, especially when standing water or other surface concerns exist. We have multiple tools that can help manage these conditions to safely and thoroughly remove water and dry the structure.

Water mitigation in St. Petersburg structures like yours requires several actions happening simultaneously. Because most of our technicians on our roster have certifications and water restoration and commercial drying, we have the available personnel when you need it to handle even substantial loss incidents. Much of our success and efficiency in this area rely on our assortment of powerful extraction and drying equipment arriving with our technicians when we reach the scene.

Where Are the Damaged Areas? 

Understanding the origin and cause of the loss incident can help save time when our technicians arrive. Because we have in-house contractors that can help perform repairs and controlled demolition, knowing how water loss began can focus these professionals in the right area. Often you can trace the migration and movement of water throughout the structure from the origin point based on the severity of these conditions in different locations of your building. When our professionals arrive to help, you might have more information about the cause of the disaster so that we could take immediate action, such as shutting off water service to the building to do emergency repairs on the plumbing network.

How Bad is the Damage? 

It is critical to understand the severity of the situation from the onset of water damage through prolonged exposure. During what is known as a job scoping phase, we can identify moisture pockets and dampness in wall systems and other exposed materials using sophisticated equipment in our inventory. And specific technologies get used to quickly identify these problem areas to direct our attention to potential problems before they get out of control. Lingering moisture and dampness can lead to microbial threats and the deterioration of exposed materials. Identifying where these moisture pockets exist often falls to several devices and tools such as:  

How Can Standing Water Get Efficiently Removed? 

Water removal is a needed service with more significant loss incidents, and migrating effects can get absorbed by carpeting, furniture, and other sensitive materials in the area. Numerous tools can be instrumental in extraction and water removal, but few can work as well for your office space as:

  • Light Wands – These attachments for extractors are also known as carpet wands. These are ideal for surface water removal and for clearing out trapped moisture in glue-down carpets common to commercial office spaces.
  • Pumps – For more substantial loss incidents that feature deeper standing water, pumps might be the best approach. These units vary in capabilities both in lift and volume.For clean water incidents, we typically stick with the smaller electric submersible pumps in our inventory. 
  • Vacuums – When water depths drop below two inches, vacuums can be a suitable next step. These do not rely on holding a prime to operate, making them ideal for shallower depths of standing water.

What Factors Can Slow Drying in Your Office Building? 

Drying is an intricate science that involves multiple factors working simultaneously to reach the same goals. When one of these factors becomes askew by environmental conditions or other situations, it could indicate a longer or costlier restoration of your office space without corrective actions. Our SERVPRO team understands the balance of these drying elements to consistently provide the fastest route to return your business to preloss condition. 

  • Changing Drying Areas – The modification of drying zones by property owners or even customers can impact the effectiveness of tools and equipment in use.
  • Temperature – Warmer temperatures often accelerate evaporation, but overly hot conditions can damage surfaces and affected materials. 
  • Airflow – The air movement throughout the drying zone can often help make drying more efficient and reduce the possibility of mold growth. 

Multiple factors play a role in restoring your office building after a water loss incident. From efficient drying and extraction to balancing numerous factors for practical restoration, you can count on our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg team to help. Give us a call anytime at (727) 522-0000.

How Soon After a Fire in St. Petersburg Can the Cleanup Begin?

Call SERVPRO to begin restoration services in your St. Petersburg home as soon as the fire department states it is safe to enter for the best outcome

A fire loss can happen in the blink of an eye and leave behind copious amounts of work to clean up in your home. There are numerous dangers associated with this type of restoration, such as:  

  • Sagging ceilings or unsafe walls and floors
  • Soot can be a potential irritant to breathe or come into contact with
  • It can be unsafe to clean up fire loss on your own, and over-the-counter cleaning solutions can cause more damage to surfaces. 

What Should I Expect During Fire Damage Restoration?

SERVPRO techs approach each fire damage restoration job in St. Petersburg properties in an organized manner. They remove the charred items and carefully describe and photograph them before taking them off-site. This information goes into a report to assist homeowners in expediting insurance claims. The techs use controlled demolition to remove the damaged portions and leave anything part of the structure that needs repairs to return to normal within the home.  

When it comes to repairs, there is no way to rebuild on top of smoke odors. The technicians use different methods to ensure there are no remaining fire scents left in the property including:   

  • Air quality improvements such as air scrubbers during mitigation to capture airborne particulate
  • Cleaning agents to lift away soot off surfaces
  • Hydroxyl generators to neutralize fire odors
  • Thermal fogging to penetrate porous items and halt odors within

Washable fabrics such as pillow covers, clothing, and bedding have a chance for restoration through the use of the powerful Esporta Washing System, which can clean smelly items with pungent smoke odors and leave them like new after just one wash.

SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg at (727) 522-0000 has years of experience performing fire damage restoration in local properties. With their state-of-the-art equipment and advanced methods, the techs can return your home to its preloss condition.

What Obstacles Exist with Cleaning Up After a Fire in My St. Petersburg Home?

6/25/2020 (Permalink)

House Fire We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Fire loss recovery can be time-consuming and involved, but our SERVPRO professionals have strategies and experience that make the process more efficient. 

Cleaning is one of the vital elements of any loss recovery for St. Petersburg homes. After fire losses, especially, the work that goes into premier cleaning and recovery can make a substantial difference in the final product that we present to our customers. In some regards, the cleaning effort that takes place after mitigation is one of the most vital steps in making fire losses "Like it never even happened."

Before thorough cleaning for the final stages of restoration can begin, other elements of fire damage in your St. Petersburg property must get addressed and resolved. Identifying these potential problems is one of the first steps. To accomplish this task, our management team performs a job scoping along with the customer when it is safe to do so. We include the property owner because they can better identify the most pressing damages that have developed, situations that existed before the fire and divulge their priorities for the restoration to come.

How Can Job Scoping Help to Make Cleaning More Efficient? 

An extensive evaluation of the damaged home before our full team of SERVPRO professionals arrive can be beneficial. With so many stages of restoration, including even the need for temporary construction solutions like board up and tarping following extinguishing, the more that our technicians know about the loss site, the better. Whether the property needs reconstruction and emergency services or not, job scoping can begin around this same time, helping to identify:

  • The extent of the damage
  • Materials and contents affected by the fire
  • Areas in need of deodorization, cleaning, and water recovery
  • Damaged structural elements that require replacement
  • Appropriate tools and personnel needed for complete restoration

What Effective Practices Can Clean Fire Damage? 

Much like nearly all of the aspects of the professional restoration services that we provide, there is usually a more profound scientific process at work. Every approach of cleaning surfaces, contents, and materials all must adhere to the known elements of cleaning after a fire loss. Because there are so many different residues and areas that need to be cleaned after a fire loss, each of these elements vary from one cleaning approach to the next. These include:

  • Temperature – Higher temperatures might not always be the best for cleaning. With varying approaches, our technicians carefully determine ideal conditions to promote the desired chemical reactions.
  • Agitation – Many agitative practices can loosen and free packed soiling from the surface to more easily wipe it away or clean it. These include brushing, vacuuming, dusting, pressurized air, and more.
  • Chemical Action – Depending on the affected surface and the type of damaging substance, there are varying results that our team can hope to achieve. We have potent cleaning products to produce these desired effects, whether it is dissolving, emulsifying, bleaching, or oxidizing.
  • Time – Time is one of the most valuable elements to appropriate cleaning. Our education of fire loss recovery can ensure that chemical agents work for the appropriate length of time before getting removed. 

What Are the Best Tools for Removing Harsh Smoke Odors? 

Much like surface cleaning, odors can present an equally formidable challenge for even our experienced restoration professionals. With these loss effects, our responding technicians must address both the environmental scents circulating throughout the house as well as trapped odors in porous surfaces like the walls, flooring, and various fabrics. While there are dozens of deodorizing tools that our team can use to neutralize smoke and burning scents, some of the most popular and reliable of these approaches include:

Is Controlled Demolition a Better Option? 

Many people think that a home needing reconstruction and repair means that restoration costs are astronomical. In many situations, however, calculated reconstruction following carefully completed controlled demolition can be a cost-effective solution. It can be easier to remove and discard damaged materials like cabinets, flooring, and wall systems in some situations than to attempt to take considerable time to deodorize, clean, and dry them. 

Cleaning up your fire-damaged home is a substantial undertaking that must begin as soon as we get notified of a disaster. From debris removal when our technicians arrive to post-construction cleanup, our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg team can help you through nearly every phase of post-fire recovery. Give us a call anytime at (727) 522-0000.

SERVPRO Offers Commercial Water Damage Restoration to St. Petersburg Holiday Apartment Owners

How does water intrusion occur?

As the owner of a holiday rental service in St. Petersburg, there are several ways that water intrusion can occur in your rental properties.

SERVPRO operates locally so we can quickly arrive at your holiday apartments and prevent water intrusion from causing permanent harm or spreading to other properties. Using portable water extractors, our technicians can remove moisture from the property before conducting a professional inspection of the damage areas. 

Do I need to be at the property during restoration?

So long as we can access the building, we can perform effective water mitigation and restoration. We record any inspection, drying equipment usage, and outcomes within a digital dry book.

How Do I Remove Floodwaters From my House?

6/8/2020 (Permalink)

Our Restorers Mitigate Flood Damage by Extracting Water Quickly and Efficiently

How can I assess the level of harm caused by flooding?

When a storm hits St. Petersburg, it is likely to cause issues for your property. These can often be due to a flood that can occur from heavy rainfall or river and road overflow. To measure the extent of harm caused by a wave, we need to extract water from your home. When standing water levels affect the first floor, only we can deploy electric submersible pumps. These pumps have enough lift volume to transport water up to twenty-five feet away from your property and are the most effective method of water removal. Once the standing water level reduces, we can assess what category of harm you are experiencing.

How can I remove water from the subfloor?

When flood damage occurs in your St. Petersburg home, it may affect your subfloor. The subfloor is a cavity that supports the floorboards or carpets. Removing the floor or carpet to allow air-movers and extractors can be useful, but it is also time-consuming. SERVPRO can use drying mats which position directly onto the surface of your floor and use water tubing as well as centrifugal pressure to draw moisture up through the floorboards. 

What happens to a property during a flood?

- Water intrusion into the property which can result in standing water

- Water migration over time which can affect the subfloor or cavities of your home

- Secondary damages like mold growth can buildup in as little as seventy-two hours

Is deodorization important in flood restoration?

Floodwaters classify as blackwater emergencies, which means there is a strong chance of contamination in the water. Our technicians have experience dealing with contaminated water intrusion, which can often be a sufficient guard against unpleasant odors. If malodors do persist after restoration is complete, we can use ultra-low-volume thermal foggers to control odor in the property until it disperses naturally.

Getting rid of floodwaters after a storm is a professional job. Contact SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg at (727) 522-0000.

Should I Restore Items or Opt For Replacement after Water Damage in My St. Petersburg Home

5/29/2020 (Permalink)

Hands holding home Your home is in good hands with our team at SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Helps Evaluate the Affected Items to Ensure the Best Course of Action when Restoring Properties 

Exposure to water in St. Petersburg, whether sudden or gradual, affects a wide range of contents and building materials negatively. The damages can touch floor materials such as floorboards, wall panels, and even contents such as furniture. One question that you may have a hard time answering is whether to throw away the affected items or find a way to save them. Several factors can influence the decision you make:

What are the common effects of water damage in St. Petersburg homes?

  • Moisture retention by porous and semi-porous materials
  • Chemical changes such as running of dyes or staining
  • Physical changes such as swelling of wood or stretching of carpets
  • Deep soiling

A wide range of outcomes is possible when there is water intrusion in a property. The variations arise because of the unique materials found in the property, the amount of water released, and the exposure time, among other things. A flexible response plan is necessary to deal with different problems effectively. A rigid plan such as extracting water only cannot help you deal with soiling or chemical changes caused by the water spill.

How do I complete all the restoration steps?

The different things you have to do to restore damaged materials can overwhelm you, jeopardizing the chances of restoring the home to its preloss state.  For instance, if you have to extract gallons of water around the property, clean soiled or stained areas, and protect materials such as carpets from permanent damage through stretching, you may have a hard time deciding what to deal with first.

One way to deal with the different restoration processes conveniently is by identifying the level of urgency for each process. For instance, instead of assuming that extracting standing water is the most crucial step when dealing with water loss, you should evaluate the loss and determine whether other steps need to be addressed first. In case there is a carpet on the floor, a step like removing items such as furniture, which might stain it with dyes or rust, has a higher priority. Such prioritization helps prevent severe damages while allowing you to complete restoration.

Another way to overcome the challenge posed by restoration processes is dedicating more resources to the job, thus tackling different processes faster or simultaneously. When you hire our SERVPRO team to handle the restoration, we bring a wide range of equipment to the loss site to tackle a wide range of tasks including:

  • Water extraction
  • Heating where necessary
  • Special storage such as freezing to halt deterioration
  • Drying or other forms of moisture management

Can factors beyond the level of damage influence the decision of whether to save items?

Sometimes the decision whether to restore an item or material damaged by water depends on factors beyond the level of damage. One such reason is the cost of restoration. If the costs involved in restoring an item are equal or slightly lower than replacement, it might be better to replace, which also creates a chance to focus on other issues. Another reason that may influence the decision of whether to restore or not is the sentimental value the item might have. Saving family heirlooms or other items that you hold dear is worth the extra work or cost that you might incur. Our SERVPRO technicians help in many ways to achieve the intended goal, including using sophisticated drying procedures like:

  • Using drying chambers 
  • Using specialized cavity drying equipment
  • Using specialized document drying techniques such as freeze-drying

When restoring your property after a water intrusion, you should not forget that sometimes the steps you take might not achieve the goal you have in mind. At times, your restoration efforts may not reverse all the damages caused by the water. For example, when the wood swells, drying may remove all the moisture, but the wood might not regain its original shape, thus rendering it useless for the original purpose. In other cases, restoration processes might create new problems. For example, if the issue is a stain on a carpet, spot cleaning can remove it, but also discolor the fibers. A patch is almost as bad as the stain, so such an outcome is not acceptable. Because of the extensive training and experience our technicians have, we can identify damages that can worsen when we attempt restoration, thus allowing you to opt for alternatives early.

The knowhow SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg offers, helps ease decision-making when restoring items affected by water intrusion in your Northeast St. Petersburg, Shore Acres, or Meadowlawn home. Call us any time at (727) 522-0000. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Contact SERVPRO Franchise Professionals to Provide Flood Damage Cleanup and Restoration in Your St. Petersburg Home

Flooding can cause damage, leading to serious issues both to the interior and exterior of a St. Petersburg home. Flooding can take place fast with minimal warning, and flood damage can leave your home requiring significant repairs. It can be daunting to recover from a flood and understand the steps to take afterward.

Why is floodwater dangerous?

Floodwater can affect human health significantly because there could be bacteria, fungi, viruses, pesticides, sharp objects, pests, and chemicals, among other hazardous substances in it. You need experts who can perform efficient flood damage cleanup in your St. Petersburg home. SERVPRO franchise professionals know what it takes to clean up, dry, disinfect and deodorize a flooded house.

What precautions should I take after a flood?

After a flood, you should take some precautions to avoid injury and extensive damage to your property. They include:

  • Avoid walking in floodwater and wear personal protective gear like boots and gloves if you must walk in it.
  • Turn off the electricity at the mains.
  • Call your insurance firm to inform it about the incident.
  • Check your home for signs of damage that needs professional help to repair such as bulges or cracks in the walls and changes to the structure.

How do you restore a flooded property?

The task of cleaning up your flood-damaged home can be a lengthy process, particularly in the case of severe water infiltration. Our SERVPRO team seeks to understand the nature of the flood. The existence of biological or chemical contaminants, sewage effluent or sands, silts, and solids in the floodwater dictates the way we manage recovery. For standing water containing the above items, we can deplore powerful trash-pumps for extraction.

We also consider the height the floodwater reached and its rate of flow around and inside the building. We use powerful extractors to remove water quickly. Our team then uses air moving and dehumidifying equipment to dry the home. We also use deodorization, antibacterial and anti-fungal products to eliminate odors and microorganisms from the affected areas of a structure.
