Siding Removal In A Storm Can Flood Cape Coral Homes

Heavy storm systems passing through the Cape Coral area are common staples through the rainier seasons of the year. While these might seem commonplace, powerful systems can quickly damage homes and properties to the point of allowing substantial internal damage from water penetration and flooding. While you cannot always account for the stability and integrity of exterior construction for your home, being prepared with the right plan to restore the property is vital to protecting the things that matter most to you.

Siding is an essential component, and any missing piece of this exterior can allow for flood damages to occur in your Cape Coral home. Our SERVPRO professionals can help by responding quickly in a flooding situation, offering real-time solutions for mitigation and loss prevention. Even in areas like your crawlspace, flooding can pose substantial problems for the entire household.

From the moment our experienced team arrives at your property, we begin a thorough assessment of the damage to determine the points of penetration and work to seal off these entry points. Once we can prevent further water penetration and flow into the house, we can get to work on extracting the excess water from the affected areas. Even with our fast response times, flooding often requires removal of overly exposed materials like drywall, carpeting, and other flooring materials.

Drying out affected areas of the property relies heavily on advanced drying equipment like our high-powered air movers and LGR or desiccant dehumidifiers designed to pull moisture from this region of the house fast. Working to reduce moisture levels below acceptable parameters decreases the likelihood of secondary effects like mold growth, and helps to protect lightly affected structural elements like framing and studs.

Flooding can occur with little notice, so homeowners rarely get prepared for the damage that this disaster can do to their property. Our SERVPRO of Cape Coral rapid response team has the experience and equipment to extract and dry floodwaters quickly to begin returning your home to its original condition. Give our professionals a call anytime at (239) 573-5911.

Fire Damage Restoration In Your Cape Coral Home

When you’ve experienced a fire in your Cape Coral home, you want to have the best restoration company at your disposal. They should be able to come fast after you contact them so you can have immediate relief and avoid additional damage to your property.

Without immediate fire damage restoration for your Cape Coral residence, the damage you’ve already sustained during the fire can spread further from the smoke and soot that is left behind. Alternatively, you could experience rain coming in from a hole burned in your roof. That is why SERVPRO staff do not waste time getting to you when you call.

When we arrive, we assess the extent of the damage, checking to see how far the fire, soot, and smoke have traveled, and how severely affected your furniture and walls are. If needed, we then tarp your home to prevent further damage or stop any water flow that may have come from a burst pipe.

SERVPRO techs take care to clean up the soot, smoke, and dust from the surfaces from your home. After a fire, your property can look stained, dark, and charred. We clean this damage up and restore your property to look as healthy as possible.

We can then begin water damage restoration to remove any standing water from firefighter efforts or any burst pipes. If there is any standing water over 2 inches, we use submersible pumps to remove as much of it as possible. Then the area can be dried with industrial strength fans and dehumidifiers and sanitized. We also work to remove any odors which can linger after the smoke has been present. It can involve carpet cleaning plus checking rooms adjacent to the fire damage since the odors, smoke, and soot can travel through the walls.

The last step of cleanup involves the removal and disposal of any items which are too severely damaged. In some cases, such as items which are too water damaged, it is safer to replace them with new items than to try and restore them.

SERVPRO of Cape Coral understands all the steps necessary to restore your home in Bokeelia, Flamingo Bay, or Pine Island after a fire. Reach out to our specialists by dialing (239) 573-5911 as soon as the fire is out so we can get started right away.

SERVPRO Will Produce Effective Mold Cleanup In Your North Fort Myers Home

12/26/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation SERVPRO Will Produce Effective Mold Cleanup In Your North Fort Myers Home Mold can grow quickly in your home after severe weather hits, call the experts immediately.

Waiting on Flood Cleanup Can Cause Mold in North Fort Myers Homes

Many North Fort Myers homes have contended with flooding from the severe weather, hurricanes, and tropical storms that have torn through Florida over the years. Many homeowners strive to quickly resolve these effects to their property as soon as they occur to return their home to its original condition, but this can also be problematic when entire regions get affected with similar damages. Instead of rushing to get professional restoration services, homeowners instead opt to save money and extract water and dry up their properties on their own. 

Without professional services and adequate drying efforts, your North Fort Myers home becomes susceptible to mold damage within a few short days. Worse still, allowing this situation to persist for weeks can cause a localized mold growth to spread quickly to affect a large area of your home. Not only does this pose a significant threat to the structural elements often used to support a colony, but it can also pose potential health risks to the occupants of the house regularly exposed to the growth. 

Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to remove this threat entirely from your home by arriving quickly and setting up containment once the parameters of the mold growth get established. This containment with negative air machines and air scrubbers helps to prevent mold spores from finding new places to colonize while the organism gets removed from the affected areas. With enough time, materials often get too damaged to preserve, and demolition is the only effective solution to remove the active colony. 

We have a contracting division of our SERVPRO team that can oversee the controlled demolition efforts and seamlessly transition into reconstructing these portions of your home once the moisture gets eliminated or reduced below acceptable parameters. 

While it might seem cost-effective to wait for flood cleanup and water removal services following a disaster in your property, you also risk widespread mold damage. Give our SERVPRO of Cape Coral rapid response team a call for any emergency the property faces at (239) 573-5911.

How Our Professionals Can Protect Your St James City Home After A Water Damage Disaster

11/27/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage How Our Professionals Can Protect Your St James City Home After A Water Damage Disaster Water can invade your St James City home through many different channels.

A Skilled Water Cleanup Team Protects St James City Residences By Mitigating Damaged Areas

Water can invade your St James City home through many different channels. Broken pipes, loosened drains, a small tear in your roof, or even an old waterbed passed down to a teenager can all become culprits. Water quickly seeps into areas with the least resistance first.
 
When water mixes with detergents, cleaning supplies, or automotive fluids stored in your home our water cleanup specialists in St James City should handle the mess. At SERVPRO, we know how to keep such contamination contained and get it extracted quickly. Pumping invasive water out happens quickly, but we must continue working to extract the dampness left behind. Cleaning this up helps remove any contamination that occurred, also.
 
Clearing the area of any damaged belongings so we can clean these up and get them dried out is part of the water cleanup process. These may contain soiling or other substances that the water picked up. We do our best to make everything, not just your home itself, “Like it never even happened.” We know how important a stuffed toy can be to a child and always take that into consideration.
 
Other items, like camping gear and sporting equipment, can sustain damage from water that came from a clean source, particularly if you stored these items on a lower shelf in the garage or storage room. We can wipe all of the hard, non-porous surfaces down and rinse off other items. Air drying can help prevent microbial growth during the remainder of the off-season, keeping your gear in good shape for the next season.
 
The presence of water resting inside your home causes many different chemical reactions to take place. Many of these produce an odor that can range from slightly noticed to highly offensive. Once we finish with the bulk of the water cleanup tasks, our Odor Control Technician (OCT) can help eliminate the odors by using hydroxyl gas generators. This gas is safe to use while your home remains occupied and does not pose the possibility of changing the color of exposed textiles where damp. Ozone is advised against in those situations.

SERVPRO of Cape Coral knows that being Faster To Any Size Disaster helps protect our customers' properties from sustaining worse damage. Water cleanup teams work fast to stop the water from spreading further and get things dried out and back to normal quickly. Call us, no matter the size of the water that has invaded your home, at our 24-hour service number, (239) 573-5911.

Revealed: Flooding in Cape Coral Can be Overcome With Team SERVPRO

Why SERVPRO Revealed: Flooding in Cape Coral Can be Overcome With Team SERVPRO Storms and flooding in Florida can bring large amounts of water into your home. Call SERVPRO immediately should your home suffer from flood damage.

Managing Costs of Flood Damage in Cape Coral is Easier with Professional Help 

When a flood happens, the work and cost involved in the restoration process can be very disheartening. Even one inch of flooding can result in a significant restoration bill. This is because apart from ruining items structurally, floodwaters also contaminate those with porous materials leading to a lot of teardown and removal. Our IICRC certified restoration services can help you deal with the challenges. We also work closely with your insurance adjuster ensuring all costs issues are addressed adequately.
 
Flood damage in Cape Coral is likely to happen in phases. The first phase is when primary damage happens and can result from rising waters, strong wind or even driving rain. The second phase involves secondary damage which is mostly brought about by standing water or excess moisture in the affected structure. Our SERVPRO crew can help you avoid this secondary damage, and the costs associated with it by extraction water fast. We have high-speed pumps and portable as well as truck-mounted extractors with storage tanks that can hold up to 12 gallons and 100 gallons respectively.
 
Mold easily develops in structures when they flood. Such growth happens because mold colonies only need enough moisture to grow because the other aspects that fuel its growth like an organic food source are readily available. Our SERVPRO crew use antimicrobial cleaning agents when cleaning affected areas to eliminate spores. We also have high-speed air movers and industrial grade dehumidifiers that we use to dry your structure to preloss levels. By preventing mold proliferation, we help you avoid the extra costs of remediation.
 
Sometimes, damage to items can happen because of extended exposure to a moist environment. Flood-damaged properties have higher levels of humidity because of evaporation. In case the building was breached by storm winds or by falling debris such as tree branches, there is a need to protect the contents from further loss. Our SERVPRO crew can move out items limiting exposure to the higher humidity levels. We can also secure the structure from weather elements by boarding up or installing roof tarps.
 
Dealing with the effects of flood damage can be a costly affair. Call SERVPRO of Cape Coral to help you manage the restoration, cost-effectively. You can reach us at (239) 573-5911. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

When The Fire is Finally Out - The First Call Should Be to SERVPRO Without A Doubt!

10/30/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage When The Fire is Finally Out - The First Call Should Be to SERVPRO Without A Doubt! Though a house fire is devastating, it is something you want to get taken care of immediately.

Why You Should Not Delay Restoration of Fire Damage In Pine Island

When there is a fire in your Pine Island property, you might be so dejected to take any remedial actions immediately. This is especially the case if the flames or smoke affected more than one room in the building. Delaying restoration is a bad idea because even after the blaze is out, other damages can still occur. Hiring a professional restorer can help lift the burden that you feel, and although it comes at a cost, it helps you avoid many problems that might develop later on.

In most cases of fire damage in Pine Island, most of the harm results from smoke deposits. While this outcome is better than the searing of surfaces by flames and heat, leaving the residue on affected surfaces for extended periods would lead to other problems. Soot is acidic and therefore tends to stain or even corrode surfaces when left in place long. Surfaces such as marble stain permanently from extended exposure, while glass in windows or other surfaces tends to look cloudy from such exposure. Our SERVPRO team removes smoke residues fast by vacuum action or wiping affected surfaces.

When a fire is fierce enough to cause structural damage such as a caved-in roof or a hole in the wall, weather elements can cause other problems if the issue is not addressed immediately. For example, if it rains, water can leak into the structure causing severe damages. In such cases, our SERVPRO team can help in different ways including using temporary measures such as boarding up the structure or using plastic sheets to seal the structure. We can also move out items from the affected area to protect them from further damage.

Most fires are put out using water, and in the effort to subdue the blaze before it becomes uncontrollable, excessive water might be used. Therefore, restoration involves removal of standing water or drying contents soaked when fighting the blaze. If such water is left standing for too long, issues like mold develop. Our SERVPRO team is equipped with enough water extractors to remove water before the 48 hours mold needs to develop elapse.
