Rely on SERVPRO if Floodwater Makes Its Way Into Your Home

While there is undoubtedly a lot of sunshine and fair weather conditions to be found in Boynton Beach, it can also experience its fair share of severe weather situations as well. Preparing for these circumstances can sometimes feel impossible, as there are plenty of instances in which the best of precautionary measures pale in comparison to the damage that a storm is truly capable of doling out. 

You should not get discouraged from pursuing preventative measures to help ward off the damaging effects of severe weather, however. In many cases, getting prepared for heavy rainfalls and gale force winds can prevent substantial flood damage to your Boynton Beach residence. Keeping yourself aware of the condition of structural components of your home, such as your foundation, can help you to stay ahead of problems before they happen. 

However, as the adage suggests, the best-laid plans “do often go awry.” So, when severe weather has allowed floodwaters into the lower levels of your home, you should know whom to call to help you set things right. Our SERVPRO team has the tools and the expertise to quickly extract the water from the affected area while simultaneously working to help you prevent the same kinds of damages in the future. 

From the moment that we arrive at your home, we set a plan into motion to begin extracting the pooled water from the floor. If there is still actively water coming into your home at this time, the team sets their sights on resolving this threat first. This process typically involves a visual inspection of the structural integrity of your entire foundation and applying hydraulic cement to compromised and vulnerable areas. 

The extraction process typically utilizes truck mounted pumps from our fleet of vehicles. Using this equipment is the most expedient way to pull the water from the floor and to reach a point where drying efforts would be successful. 

When you are dealing with flood damage to your home, your priority is restoring the damage quickly and thoroughly to prevent further costs to you or damage to things that cannot get replaced. Our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach restoration specialists can help you to set things right. Give us a call anytime at (561) 413-9754.

Mold Remediation Taking Care Of Mold Damage To Your Boynton Beach Home With higher temperatures and excessive moisture in the air, fungal spores have an opportunity to seat into materials and surfaces of your home.

Taking Care Of Mold Damage

Humidity can be a hard thing to have to deal with every day, but that is often the case for coastal communities like Boynton Beach. While there are innumerable ways to “beat the heat” as they say, failing to regulate this humidity in your home can have worse effects than only making you uncomfortable. With higher temperatures and excessive moisture in the air, fungal spores have an opportunity to seat into organic materials and surfaces of your home and start forming colonies.

Many people believe that mold damage in their Boynton Beach home is not something that requires immediate attention. Since so many houses in the area combat excessive moisture and higher temperatures for most of the year, the potential resulting fungal growth is believed to be non-threatening. As you might have already known, mold can cause health effects to you and your family and as such, should be handled efficiently and thoroughly.

Professional remediation services are your best bet to restore the damage that mold has caused to your house and to prevent it from occurring so readily in the future. SERVPRO technicians get trained to the high standards set in place by the IICRC to be certified remediation specialists in both residential and commercial settings. Our tools and experience blend into an effective strategy for mold removal and damage restoration process.

Isolation of the affected area is a top priority for our technicians on site. Throughout the remediation process, circulation of air through AC units or fans stops to allow equipment like negative air chambers positioned around the colonies to efficiently prevent the spread of mold spores to new areas. Scrubbers fitted with filters clean deeply into mold damaged surfaces to remove the entire organism. In some cases of widespread damage to structural components, sanding equipment gets used to remove thin layers of affected material.

While this is just a short overview of the remediation process, it can show the great lengths that our experienced professionals go to prevent damage from getting worse while working to restore what has already been affected. If you are dealing with mold, you should reach out to SERVPRO of Boynton Beach. Our certified remediation specialists can be reached anytime at (561) 413-9754.

Storm Damage Tips for Minimizing Flood Damage to Your Boynton Beach Property It is important to unplug all electrical devices when preparing for potential flood damage.

Preparing Your Home Before a Flood Can Help Minimize the Damage

Flood is a natural disaster that can have a catastrophic impact on your Boynton Beach home.

Another essential thing to do is to make sure that all your electric devices are unplugged. If possible, shut off the electricity supply to your home as well to avoid electric shock.

Mold Remediation Why do you need professional help to get rid of mold damage to your Boynton Beach property? Call SERVPRO at the first sign of mold damage for professional mold remediation services.

SERVPRO Professionals are Trained to Properly and Thoroughly Remediate Mold Damage

Mold can be difficult to control if you are not careful. Once the spores germinate in a humid place in your Boynton Beach home, they can form colonies and spread quickly. It is tempting to get rid of mold on your own, but it is never a good idea. Trying to clean mold without proper equipment and precautions can enable them to spread to unaffected areas of your home and may cause health effects as well.

Here at SERVPRO, we use state-of-the-art technology and equipment to clean and remove mold from your Boynton Beach home. Our skilled and certified technicians have years of experience in the mold remediation process. They work in close association with the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) professionals and Indoor Environmental Professionals (IEP) to ensure your safety during and after the process.

The IAQ and IEPs perform the initial testing and provide a written protocol for the remediation process. Once the protocol is ready, our technicians work tirelessly to execute it in the shortest possible time.

It is essential to identify and document each mold damage incident so that a targeted approach can be designed for remediation. It is a job that requires experience and expertise that an average homeowner seldom has. SERVPRO professionals are IICRC certified and have the necessary skills to execute these cleaning protocols. We use a multi-stage approach to confine and clean the affected area and prevent the mold spores from spreading.

Furthermore, mold remediation is not complete until the underlying cause is treated. SERVPRO technicians help you to get rid of the residual moisture from your property so that the underlying reason for the mold damage is eliminated. We also use air scrubbers and HEPA filters to remove spores and dust from the air to prevent recurring damage.

Mold remediation is a complicated process that should be done by professionals. Make sure that you call SERVPRO of Boynton Beach at (561) 413-9754 as soon as you detect mold in your home. Avoid cleaning mold on your own and wait for the professionals to arrive.

Clothes Dryer Fire Damage Cleanup In Your Boynton Beach Home

Fire Damage Clothes Dryer Fire Damage Cleanup In Your Boynton Beach Home One appliance in your home that you may not think about causing fires can be dangerous if it is not taken care of correctly – your clothes dryer.

Fire Damage Cleanup

One appliance in your Boynton Beach home that you may not think about causing fires can be dangerous if it is not taken care of correctly – your clothes dryer. A leading cause for this is the accumulation of lint. It creates reduced airflow, making prime conditions for a fire to start. Lint is very combustible, and many people think that by pulling the lint out of the trap is good enough. However, lint can get stuck underneath as well.

The dryer in your Boynton Beach home needs to be regularly cleaned of lint, both in the trap and under it. If this is not done, you could very well end up with fire and fire damage to your home. If the unfortunate has happened, SERVPRO is standing by at all times to help you. We are a professional fire damage remediation company who can assist you with cleaning and repairing your home after a fire.

Usually, restoration and cleaning services lower the cost of a claim for fire damage. The most expensive aspect is the replacement. Resurfacing is another costly option. Structural surfaces can be repainted, upholstered items can be recovered, and wood surfaces can be refinished. Restoration and cleaning services are just a fraction of the cost of resurfacing and replacement.

The goal is to restore materials to their preloss condition. SERVPRO staff follow basic cleaning principles to do so. We first inspect the areas affected carefully to identify the smoke residues present. We begin where the fire started and track where the smoke moved throughout your home. After this, we can identify the kind of residues. Different types can exist at the same time, and we choose a method of cleaning which removes the particular kinds of smoke residues present.

The kind of surface determines the cleaning methods and products that are safe for us to use. We work carefully to preserve everything we are cleaning, but we may not be able to restore some materials since they cannot hold up to the process of cleaning.

Some residues bond with surfaces they come into contact. We use wet and dry cleaning processes to loosen and take residue particles away from the affected surfaces. Then we properly dispose of debris and cleaning waste when we are done.

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach is careful to remove all the smoke residues in your home after a dryer fire. Residents in Boynton Beach and the surrounding areas can reach out to us at any time by dialing (561) 413-9754.

Hidden Leaks Cause a Need for Water Removal in Boynton

11/25/2017 (Permalink)

Water Damage Hidden Leaks Cause a Need for Water Removal in Boynton By checking your water meter you can discover hidden leaks in your plumbing.

Professional Water Removal Services Available to Boynton Homeowners

Every Boynton homeowner knows the danger of leaks. A broken appliance, leaking pipe, malfunctioning faucet or even a damaged drainpipe can all cause a leak in the home. Leaking water that is not stopped can lead to longer-term structural damage, rotting of wood beams or baseboards, or even mold in the room or the carpet. That is why SERVPRO recommends putting in a call at the first sign of trouble so our IICRC-certified technicians can carry out expert water removal.

However, not every leak is immediately visible, and you might find you need water removal after a hidden leak in your Boynton home causes a problem. Here are some things you can do to check for hidden leaks in your house.

Check your water bills. Keep an eye on your water utility bill – a sudden rise in charges could signify a leak somewhere on your property. Unless you have dramatically changed your household routine or water usage, it is best to be suspicious of noticeable changes to your bill.

Check your water meter. Checking your meter is a simple way to spot unexpected leaks. Choose a time when no one needs to use the water in your home. Take a note of the number of your water meter. Now, stop using all water sources for three hours. Do not use faucets, showers, toilets, bathtubs, or appliances such as washing machines or dishwashers. After three hours have elapsed, recheck your meter – if it has changed despite no-one using water, that means there is a leak.

Be vigilant for signs of damp. Check every room in your home regularly for signs of damp, including wet or spongy patches on floors or walls, mold growth, discolored patches on walls or ceilings, or a musty smell.

It is essential to remedy leaks as soon as you spot them. It is also a good idea to call SERVPRO for water removal and help to deal with damp or mold as a result of a water leak. Our IIRC-certified experts are on hand to extract water, dry your home, and leave it “Like it never even happened.” We can even deal with lingering damp odors, so your home feels fresh and clean.

For help with water removal in Boynton Beach and surrounding areas, call SERVPRO of Boynton Beach at (561) 413-9754 today.
