Reducing Odor In Your St. Petersburg Eatery After A Kitchen Fire
Fires present multiple effects to overcome in your St. Petersburg eatery. While some incidents stay focused to a specific room or area of your building, certain effects can spread out farther than the initial combustion site, regardless of the size or severity of the fire before it got extinguished. It is our focus to provide a legitimate and efficient solution to each of these symptoms within your property, and that extends to challenging odor removal throughout the restaurant.
As a location that serves hot food to hungry patrons, you always stand at a slight risk of something going wrong that allows for fire damage in your St. Petersburg kitchen. From grease fires on the stovetop to appliance surges from overloaded outlets, the possibility for potential ignition persists. Amid the extinguishment of this fire, you should reach out to our professionals at SERVPRO for an honest assessment and accurate of the damage to help you move forward with cleanup and odor removal as promptly as you can.
Soot damage and odors are often among the worst effects for smaller kitchen fires in restaurants, but these same effects can also spread far beyond the ignition point to affect patrons that would come into the restaurant for dining. Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly in this situation to work towards protecting all of the equipment and areas of your restaurant so that you do not have to keep your doors closed to the public a moment longer than necessary.
Odor removal often falls to set equipment available to our SERVPRO technicians that respond to your address following an emergency. Between our thermal foggers and hydroxyl generators, our professionals can work to significantly reduce or entirely permanently remove foul odors lingering in both the primary area for the fire and secondary locations like the dining area and lobby.

Don't Let Storms Waterlog Your St. Petersburg Church
Storm water can damage churches. SERVPRO has the equipment, expertise and experience to quickly restore your church.
Water Removal Services for Your St. Petersburg Church
Recovering your St. Petersburg church after a disaster can prove problematic when those available to you lack the equipment or resources to help in the time frame where it is most beneficial. With water loss incidents happening within your church, construction materials and the contents of the various rooms are at risk for saturation and moisture effects which could cause irreparable damage. These time-sensitive situations are why our emergency response team exists.
When your St. Petersburg church requires water removal services, it often follows some water loss incident which occurs within the building. From plumbing breaks to sprinkler system failures, high volumes of water can spread quickly throughout your property and begin saturating into materials almost immediately. Our SERVPRO professionals are available 24/7 to help you mitigate this situation through fast extraction work and the preservation of the things most precious to you in the building.
One of the things that often initially gets overlooked when it comes to water damage spreading throughout the church is the pews and altar. These wooden constructions are particularly susceptible to saturation when exposed to pooling water, and this saturation can cause warping and bloating of the submerged portions. With extraction work happening quickly, this saturation has less of an opportunity to take hold, and its effects get negated through the dehumidification and drying efforts to follow.
The same could be said for the flooring, as many sanctuaries get covered with wall-to-wall carpeting. Pooling water can penetrate and collect in the fibers of this carpeting, and seep into the padding and supports for the floor beneath it. Our weighted extraction equipment can force water out of the padding and carpet to get removed with a high-powered vacuum.
These might be specific examples of how water damages can get overcome in your church, but it can also display the level of care and appreciation that our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg franchise has for the churches and commercial properties of our communities. When disaster strikes, give our emergency response team a call 24/7 at (727) 522-0000.

Removing Commercial Fire Damage In Pinellas County Businesses
We stock a wide variety of cleaning supplies to remove smoke and soot from your business.
Cleaning Smoke and Soot after fire damage
When our teams walk into a Pinellas County business after a fire, the damage they see often appears to be minor. Heat and flames do not cause most of the damage or result in the most significant percentage of cost when it comes to restoration.
Smoke and soot left by fire usually cause most of the commercial damage to Pinellas County businesses. SERVPRO restoration specialists work quickly to clean and remove the residues left behind, but even then, the odors from a fire can be the hardest part to remove. Our teams utilize a plan developed by decades of experience helping our community to rid every home of them.
First, specialists remove all debris and other items that are a source of the odors. Any item that is charred or smells bad, they take out of the structure. While team members remove property, others set up fans to increase circulation and reduce any pungent odors. In businesses that have a significant amount of inventory or records in storage, this may take several days to accomplish. It is necessary though, so our teams can determine how strong the odors are and what needs to be done to remove them.
After clearing the building, SERVPRO inspectors and technicians examine the structure. If the remaining building materials, such as carpets and ceiling tiles, are free of other damage, they begin the cleaning process. For carpets, they shampoo or steam clean them with a deodorizing agent mixed into the cleaning solution. For ceiling tiles and other building material, our technicians carefully spray surfaces with a cleaning/deodorizing agent and wipe them down with a sponge or cleaning cloth.
The spray-and-wipe method works on most odors, but for powerful odors or ones in hard to reach areas, it may be necessary to use a fogging device. The machine our technicians utilize breaks down the cleaning/deodorizing agent into a cloud which is then carefully blown into the area using fans where it neutralizes the odor-causing residues.
Our goal at SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg is to help you reopen your doors to customers as quickly as possible. So regardless of where you are in Pinellas County, call us at (727) 522-0000 today to schedule a visit. We are here for you.

SERVPRO Helps Minimize the Damage after a Commercial Fire in St. Petersburg
Many factors affect the cleaning process after fire damage, SERVPRO acts fast to restore your business as soon as possible.
The Six Major Factors that Affect Fire Damage Restoration
Business fires in St. Petersburg normally get stopped quickly. Fire suppression systems are effective and respond rapidly to too much heat or smoke. They prevent damage from flames, but the cost of smoke and soot adds up quickly.
When it comes to commercial fire damage in St. Petersburg, factory owners can depend on SERVPRO to reduce the cost and reopen their doors as quickly as possible. Our restoration teams have the latest training and equipment to help put every light industry operation back to work. We look at six major factors and tailor each plan accordingly.
The type of material that burned tells us the most. Natural materials like wood leave a dry residue that we can wipe away easily. Synthetic materials like plastic tabletops leave a wet residue that requires more effort to clean. It also pits other surfaces, causing further damage.
Surface types determine the number of hours we put in and what tools and cleaners we need. Non-porous surfaces such as glass and metal are easier to clean and require fewer cleaners. In many cases, our IICRC-certified technicians can wipe off the smoke and soot with dry sponges or with a small amount of water to break up thick layers of soot.
Smoke and soot more easily penetrate porous surfaces such as drywall and other building material. That makes them much harder to clean and our technicians often need a chemical cleaner. If water also soaked the building material, it is usually cheaper for SERVPRO crews to remove and replace it.
Surface age is also a factor. Interior paint breaks down over time and makes it more difficult to clean. The same is true for glass and metal. Scratches and rust break down the surfaces, allowing soot to penetrate. We can still clean all of these, but it does require additional labor hours and stronger cleaning agents. For metal surfaces, we may need a stiff, wire brush to remove all of the soot.
The heat of the fire before it was put out is important also. Higher temperatures cause plastic and laminate surfaces to form bubbles and melt. As they warp, soot and even odors penetrate deeper.
Temperature change can be a problem as well. If a surface cools rapidly, like when water strikes it from the suppression system or the efforts of the fire department, the soot residue on it can form a film which is more difficult to remove.
Finally, moisture can be a problem as well. A high moisture level can cause vinyl to change color and permanently stain other property if it burns at a high temperature. Again, the source of this moisture is often from the suppression system or firefighters trying to preserve the structure.
Reopening your business after a fire is not a fast process, but SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg does everything possible to make it as quick and financially painless as possible. If you need our services, call us at (727) 522-0000 today.

St. Petersburg Water Damages Do Not Have To Shut Down Your Motel
St. Petersburg Skyline, Your Wet Motel from Water Damage, and the Solution--SERVPRO
Fast Removal of Water Done without Disruptions, Call SERVPRO for Your Business
Water damage to your motel is not always something that can be avoided. There are plenty of unforeseen incidents that can leave you in need of professional restoration. When you are in the middle of such a crisis, you should be thinking about the right team to call to help you get the problem fixed quickly and professionally.
While water damage in St. Petersburg is not uncommon news in recent months, especially following the devastation of multiple tropical storms, getting your establishment restored quickly is a wise investment on your part. With a small motel, the number of rooms is limited. When some of these units are directly affected by water damages, this can be a costly hit to your business.
You need the motel to be able to run at full capacity as soon as you possibly can, and that is why you should be calling SERVPRO. Our dedicated and experienced team can handle all manner of commercial water removal to mitigate damage. SERVPRO offers a 24-hour emergency line to get our team to you quickly. No matter what time of the day or night, you can reach us to start the restoration service.
This is especially important if time is of the essence. Sometimes pipe breaks or appliance malfunctions are difficult to shut off on your own. In a motel, the primary shutoff for the water can also adversely affect all of the rooms in the entire facility, leaving them without the ability to do something as essential as flushing a toilet, taking a shower or even brushing their teeth.
Even if you are only dealing with a small water damage incident (maybe a single room in your motel), SERVPRO is an excellent choice to call. Their expertise in removing the water can prevent further damage to the affected room, as well as those connected to it. This allows you to keep more of the rooms open and available for guests, and our company’s ability to restore damages quickly can mitigate your financial losses.
Trust our team at SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg for all of your damage restoration needs. You can call us anytime, 24/7, at (727) 522-0000.

In St. Petersburg, Professional Water Removal is Critical For Museum Damage Mitigation
For Water Removal from Your Commercial Building in St. Pete Rely on SERVPRO
Commercial Water Damage is Always Minimized by Calling SERVPRO
Our beautiful city is home to many museums, preserving both the arts and history for our community and visitors. The buildings housing these treasures are as vulnerable as any to water incursion from failed plumbing, leaky roofs, and storm surges. SERVPRO has the expertise, trained technicians, and powerful equipment to remove the water swiftly before lasting damage occurs.
A malfunction in the automatic flushing system in patron restrooms floods exhibit floors, necessitating water removal in a popular St. Petersburg museum. Along with the threat to priceless artwork, the health and well-being of museum employees and visitors hang in the balance if cleanup does not complete quickly and to industry standards. We have the capability to remove large quantities of water fast, with enough workers and equipment to return the museum to preloss condition while limiting any disappointing or costly closures.
Because the water may contain infectious waste, it is crucial to engage a restoration company with the restoration industry certifications and experience with large scale removal of contaminated water. SERVPRO meets these criteria. We are familiar with local laws and regulation concerning the removal of hazardous waste and the required sanitation protocols after the water is gone. Our equipment is truck-mounted and secures the tainted water for proper disposal.
We are a local company connected to a nationwide network of restoration companies. Though we are a stand alone franchise, this permits us to leverage more trained restoration workers and equipment from neighboring SERVPRO franchises to complete an extensive cleanup job fast. Pumps and extractors take care of standing water while technicians move in to take moisture readings and establish drying goals once the areas affected are sanitized. Air movers and dehumidifiers properly positioned begin the task of drying flooring, walls, and trim.
Drying Mats ensure water is removed to the subfloor as well. Our technicians determine if other strategies such as removing some sections of tile or hardwood flooring are necessary to dry thoroughly every layer. Pinpoint holes drilled in wooden floor allows moisture to evaporate if the finish prevents it. Once the moisture levels drop below-designated levels, we complete the final restoration touches, reinstalling tiles and refinishing wooden trim and flooring.
Transforming a museum awash in water is a task SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg awaits with confidence. Call (727) 522-0000 and we deliver the team and equipment needed to restore museum exhibits and spaces to their glory.

Resuming Full Operations After Commercial Flood Damage in a St. Petersburg Processed Food Factory
Water Damaged Food Processing Plants in St. Petersburg Get Back On-Line Faster with SERVPRO's Help
St. Petersburg Businesses Benefit from SERVPRO's Swift Service after Flooding
Any business is at risk of sustaining losses, with some being foreseeable and therefore preventable, even if only partially, and other losses being completely unexpected. Some, such as broken water lines or other mishaps involving appliances and equipment that rely on the use of water, can only be partially prevented by proper maintenance – sometimes, water lines leak, burst open, or fall apart even when they have been maintained fastidiously.
The production of food items must adhere to strict rules, and commercial flood damage in St. Petersburg can interfere with this adherence to the rules, making the final products unusable. SERVPRO understands that you have not only deadlines to meet but also outside regulations to follow. Without the ability to fulfill both, your company, employees, and even those on the supply end, can all suffer.
With the problem of water damage, unlike other types of damage, water can get into areas where it can remain hidden, making it difficult to extract. This is why after we are finished with our pump trucks and handheld units, we then implement the use of smaller units that can extract moisture from highly porous materials, including wood flooring and insulation.
Whenever foodstuffs are involved in flooding incidents, even if the water is considered clean at its origin, wet items are required to be disposed of responsibly. This includes food in cans, as well as those that are in less-durable packages and dry goods. Because of this kind of loss can be quite costly, we are ready to help you with inventory sheets that you can present to your insurance carrier. Doing so can speed up the claims process significantly.
SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg is an experienced restoration company. We have aided many customers over the years in the recovery of their businesses after flood damage, and other catastrophes have caused significant losses and created interference of normal operations. When you have damages that do the same to you, call us at (727) 522-0000, at any hour of the day, any day of the week. We have the experience necessary to make it “Like it never even happened.”
Commercial Fire Damage in St. Petersburg Nightclubs
St. Petersburg Relies on SERVPRO to Keep the Music Playing After Fire Damaging Events to Commercial Properties
SERVPRO Keeps Patrons Dancing During Fire & Smoke Cleanup
Owning a nightclub comes with a multitude of responsibilities – to patrons, to employees, and to the government. One responsibility that covers all three groups is fire safety. Having various safety protocols in place can help protect against fire, and lower the number of injuries and fatalities if a fire ever does happen, but these same protocols cannot guarantee that the possibility of any fire is eliminated.
Commercial fire damage in St. Petersburg, where there are several nightclubs, can happen to any of them, no matter how many protective measures they seem to have. This is because even with crowd control measures, fires can occur because of recklessness and risky behavior. Illegal activities, such as smoking a cigarette, can cause bathroom fires that might or might not be contained in small areas.
Some fires spread quickly because the soundproofing used inside to prevent nuisance calls from neighboring businesses and residences might not have adequate fire retardant applied. When one part of the soundproofing catches on fire, black smoke is also released in huge amounts. Cleaning this up from materials that have not been damaged by heat or direct fire can be done, but the work must begin immediately to preserve the material from corrosive damage.
Nightclubs invest heavily in décor, and much of this consists of lighting. Lighting is essential to any business' environment. Lighting produces much of the mood people come to associate with any particular business, and night clubs are no exception. Black lights, under-counter lights, and many other types are used in clubs. These can become costly to replace in bulk. If unbroken, SERVPRO can take the time to clean them of soot and then return each one to its original location. We are that thorough, but careful with everything we clean.
Soot settles everywhere, of course, and in addition to removing soot from surfaces, we know from experience that the distinctive smell of fire is left behind by soot particles that have found their way into hidden locations, spots too difficult to reach with even the best cleaning methods.
Very sensitive people can experience headaches, nausea, and other ailments when exposed to the smell of smoke, even when there is no fire present. Hydroxyl generators can solve this problem, even when your club is open, and patrons are present. SERVPRO can set these up, so they are both effective and in out-of-the-way locations.
At SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg, we do more than repair your building. We also remove the foul odors that can ruin your business. Call us at (727) 522-0000 for fire damage disasters. We are always available to take your call.
