Pack-Outs Protect The Stock In Your Boynton Beach Store From Soot

When your Boynton Beach store falls victim to the unpredictability of fire, you can deal with many damaging effects that need to get addressed immediately. As pressing as structural integrity concerns might be, not all fires damage the strength of the building materials. In many situations, sprinklers or fire extinguishers can stop the fire quickly where it started, but there are still spreading effects like soot and smoke residues that must get cleaned.

You have a large volume of foot traffic to consider when your Boynton Beach store is affected by fire damage like soot. While soot does not pose significant health threats, it can leave your stock and contents of your store at risk for irreparable damage and staining. Removing this residue should get left to trained professionals with the appropriate advanced equipment to clean up the affected areas quickly and efficiently, making our SERVPRO professionals a wise choice.

Soot and smoke residues can spread out far from the combustion site, putting areas and contents of your property at risk that were not immediately involved in the fire. Our professionals can arrive quickly to begin setting up containment barriers to prevent the spread of smoke and soot effects throughout your store and reducing the overall damage that occurs while we get started on cleanup.

For the items and stock throughout your store affected or at risk for soot and smoke residue exposure, our contents department can safely pack these items up in an empty production vehicle that we bring. They get safely transported to a nearby facility so that our SERVPRO team can carefully clean, deodorize, and store these items until they can get safely returned to your full restored business.

When you think of the high volume of traffic that your business can receive over a single day, you realize how vital it is to get the right professional assistance to get your doors back open promptly. Our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach rapid response team can help. Give our experts a call anytime you need us at (561) 413-9754.

Boynton Beach Fire Damage Has Degrees of Severity

Why SERVPRO Boynton Beach Fire Damage Has Degrees of Severity Enjoy Boynton Beach without the Fires

Rely on SERVPRO to Restore and Repair Destruction Caused by Smoke & Fire

Property damage from a fire falls into several types. There is the material partially or completely consumed by the flames of course. More damage occurs thanks to the heat of the fire and the smoke residues generated by burning property and building materials. Firefighters cause further damage with the water or other extinguishing chemicals they use to put out the fire.

Most fire damage to a Boynton Beach home comes from heat and smoke residues on the structure and personal property. Even with this category, there are three levels of fire damage. SERVPRO has developed this scale over decades of experience in the restoration business. Understanding the severity helps us determine which methods of cleaning are going to work the best.

Minor Damage – At this level, smoke residues only affect a few rooms or areas, not the entire house. The amount is light to moderate. Technicians use dry and wet cleaning methods for walls, floors, and ceilings as well as the contents of the home. Repainting is minimal, and only minor items like newspapers, books, and perhaps some clothing require replacing. We eliminate most smoke odors during cleaning.

Medium Damage – The residue levels here are at least moderate and over a larger area of the home. More materials need wet cleaning to remove the residues. Repainting is necessary for larger areas of the home, and more items need replacement as well. Smoke odors are more noticeable at this level, and certain items may require deodorization after we finish cleaning. There may be heat damage to cabinets and drywall, and wood floors may need refinishing.

Major Damage – This is where fire and heat harm the framing and other structural supports of the home. Smoke residues are throughout the home and odors are not only powerful but pungent. Our IICRC industry certified SERVPRO technicians may have to board up doors and windows to prevent further damage from the weather or trespassers. The property we can clean and restore must be taken outside the home to do so, and deodorization is a must at this level. We have a unique Pack-Out Service for storing and cleaning possessions at our HQ's.

Each level of damage needs a professional agency to ensure completion of restoration in a timely and cost-effective manner. SERVPRO of Boynton Beach has the experience, training, and equipment to clean, repair and restore your home to a livable condition again. "Like it never even happened." If you need our services, call today at (561) 413-9754.

The Common Intersections Between Air Conditioning And Mold In Boynton Beach

Why SERVPRO The Common Intersections Between Air Conditioning And Mold In Boynton Beach Regular maintenance of your cooling system pays you back in increased efficiency and a significant reduction of mold growth.

Mold And Your AC

Living in a semi-tropical, humid climate Floridians are familiar with a few things. One, air conditioning is a necessity for most homeowners’ comfort. Two, mold and mildew grow easily in our humid climate. Three, AC should limit mold because it removes excess moisture from the air. SERVPRO agrees in theory with one through three but warns that mold and air conditioning have a complicated relationship.

Although you run an appropriately sized central air conditioning unit, you smell that unmistakable unpleasant odor indicating you have mold damage in your Boynton Beach home. The delicate balance between removing the water via condensation within the AC system and preventing mold growth in the air handler causes frustration for you. We are here to help you understand why it happens and what we can do as mold remediation specialists to solve the problem going forward.

The problem is that the workings of the air conditioning system that remove the water from the air sometimes begins accumulating the condensed moisture, along with dust and dirt, within the unit. This combination of moisture and carbon-based debris creates a mold nursery. Water condenses on the evaporator coil and then drains into the condensation pan. If this area collects dirt and the water has trouble draining, mold is the almost inevitable result.

This is where SERVPRO technicians help. We inspect and clean the ductwork of your HVAC system, including that evaporator area. Scrubbing the interior of the ducts and using a powerful vacuum to remove the debris is an essential service offered by our experienced staff. After the water is draining properly from the condensation pan and the coils and ducts are cleaned we recommend removing the HVAC filter and installing a new, clean, and disposable replacement.

Regular maintenance of your cooling system pays you back in increased efficiency and a significant reduction of mold growth. Work with the SERVPRO scheduling staff to ensure your system is inspected, cleaned, and filters replaced at least every six months. If you notice a foul, musty odor, consider more frequent visits from our team.

If you are concerned about mold growth in your home, get SERVPRO of Boynton Beach involved. Our office staff set up appointments, and happily add your name to the inspection list when you call (561) 413-9754.

Why Hire SERVPRO To Manage Fire Odor In Boynton Beach

After a fire incident in your property, one of the main problems you are likely to grapple with is bad odor and air quality issues. As a fire burns, it emits smoke, which is a combination of gases, particles, and aerosols. While the gases and a small percentage of the residues dissipate into the air and filter out of the building, the rest adhere to surfaces leading to the bad odors experienced after fire incidents. We have highly trained FSRT, Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians who can help you deal with the bad odors.

One aspect that helps the management of fire odor in Boynton Beach is the identification and removal of smoke residues. The advanced training our SERVPRO technicians receive helps them accomplish this effortlessly because we understand how residues accumulate. Concealed areas tend to be cooler, so convection currents that drive smoke force accumulation of deposits. Identifying and cleaning all concealed areas that hold such residue including HVAC systems helps eliminate odors.

Apart from the deposits on surfaces, odor-causing particles also penetrate different materials depending on factors such as the natural porosity of the material, or the intensity of the fire. Hotter fires open up pores in materials leading to deeper penetration. Our SERVPRO technicians undergo training on how to neutralize such odors using agents that sanitize, digest or neutralize odor particles. Using ULV foggers is one of our preferred delivery methods for such agents.

Sometimes the source of the odor might not be easy to pinpoint. It could emanate from aerosols left in the air or light smoke residues spread all over the property. Such cases might require different approaches. Our SERVPRO technicians use HEPA filtered air scrubbers with activated carbon and potassium permanganate filters. These machines remove dirt, gases and odor particles from the air. We also use Ozone machines that release unstable oxygen molecules that oxidize odor particles, neutralizing them.

Odor issues can be challenging to deal with, but with help from a highly trained team of professionals, you can get the right solution. Call SERVPRO of Boynton Beach at (561) 413-9754 to help. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Remediation for Mold Behind Drywall in Your Boynton Beach Home

There are times when disasters strike your Boynton Beach home in a way that is impossible to ignore. Unfortunately, not all of the threats that your home faces are so blatant and noticeable. Often situations like mold and microbial growth can begin and persist out of sight where dampness and moisture occurs. Identifying this threat requires some basic knowledge about mold growth, but removing this organism requires the skill and expertise of certified remediation specialists for several reasons.

One of the more troubling aspects of a microbial growth in your Boynton Beach home is how many owners would choose to forego mold remediation. Instead, these homeowners opt to attempt DIY removal techniques which only scratch at the surface of the problem. More specifically, in a situation where you cannot see the active colony, DIY remediation becomes hazardous and destructive. Our SERVPRO remediation specialists can identify the presence of mold and determine its spread, allowing us to contain the organism as our team removes this damaging presence from your property.

Often drywall affected by mold growth requires removal. Much like water damages, the sheetrock composition of drywall can erode and degrade quickly while hosting a mold colony. The concern with removal is an assurance that all of the mold growth has gotten removed and none remains to continue to spread and thrive in wall cavities. We use controlled demolition techniques to remove only the areas that require it, allowing the reconstruction from our contractors to be a seamless transition to follow our remediation.

Drywall that does not require removal gets sprayed with our antimicrobial solution to make the material uninhabitable to spores in the affected area. Mold growth can cause health effects for those in your home exposed to the colony, so contacting our SERVPRO professionals quickly can limit this exposure and subsequent damages to the property.

From fast remediation and prevention through reconstruction and restoration, our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach specialists can help whenever you discover mold growth in your home. For a thorough inspection or to reach our rapid response team, give us a call today at (561) 413-9754.

And maybe even a mop and bucket to prevent seepage into other floor levels or wall voids.

When warm or hot water overflowed, it can severely affect floors, particularly when detergent also seeps into floors. We use industry standard techniques to effectively clear the area of detergents and then use our Injectidry mats to extract the water below the floorboards. Hooked up to suctioning devices these mats increase drawing power from the joints in the hardwood boards pulling out residual moisture.

Other methods to dry out your home and eliminate water and reduce humidity include the placement of air movers and dehumidifiers. Air movers pull moisture out of surfaces and keep it from seeping deeper into walls, floors, and other items in the area where your washing machine sits.

Waiting Too Long to Remediate Water Damage Can Lead to Mold Damage Forming in Your Home

In order to avoid the formation of mold damage, it is essential to remediate water damage as quickly as possible after it happens. Otherwise, it is possible for mold damage to form and cause further damage on top of the problems that you are already dealing with. It takes less than seventy-two hours after the initial exposure to water damage for mold spores to become active. Mold spores are omnipresent and impossible to be completely rid of them. However, they are also harmless in their spore state, as long as the area they inhabit remains dry.
 
When mold spores are exposed to water, they can cause mold damage inside of your Boynton Beach home by forming a mold colony. Mold damage and mold colonies should never be left inside of your home for an extended period of time. Over time, mold can break down the wooden structure of your home and cause health effects in the individuals who live there. To avoid these situations, ridding your home of the mold as quickly as possible is the best course of action.
 
Here, at SERVPRO, our highly trained IICRC-certified technicians use advanced techniques and equipment in conjunction to combat mold damage. Furthermore, our company prides itself on its quick service. We are "Faster to Any Size Disaster." When you hire SERVPRO, you can feel confident in our speed, our professionalism, our results, and our customer-friendliness.
 
When we arrive at your house, SERVPRO can begin the remediation after a swift investigation of the damages. Mold damage should always be quarantined from the rest of the house before remediation, as agitation can cause the spores from the colony to become airborne and spread. Putting up a plastic barricade keeps the spores away from the rest of your home and prevents the colony from taking root elsewhere.
 
To start the remediation, SERVPRO can use disinfection to clean the mold away from the surface it has attached itself to, so long as it is only semi-porous or nonporous. Should the mold have taken root in a porous material, the material has to go with the mold, as it cannot be cleaned thoroughly. Once the mold has been removed, our technicians can spray an anti-fungal agent to prevent the mold from regrowing and then leave your home in its pre-mold state.
 
When it comes to finding mold damage inside of your home, it is essential to get help fast. Dial (561) 413-9754 to get in touch with SERVPRO of Boynton Beach. Day or night, our doors are open.

Why Properly Working Smoke Alarms are Essential to Your Boynton Beach Property

1/15/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Why Properly Working Smoke Alarms are Essential to Your Boynton Beach Property Properly working smoke alarms save lives. Test your smoke detector often

The Importance of Using Smoke Detectors in Your Boynton Beach Home

Having smoke detectors throughout your home in various locations gives you effective and fast smoke detection. The siren of the device warns you at any time of day or night that there is a potential fire, letting you quickly check what the issue is and hopefully prevent damage to your Boynton Beach home. When put in the right locations, smoke alarms can also help firefighters to locate the fire in your home, allowing them to focus their effects more efficiently.  

Smoke stains from a large or small fire in Boynton Beach can be harmful to your home, other than unsightly. Smoke and soot are corrosive, and if left alone, continue to cause more damage. Therefore, if you have had a small fire, you need the professionals at SERVPRO to help you clean up the smoke left behind. Our technicians are trained and equipped to help restore your home with specialized cleaning methods and deodorizers.  

Because smoke rises, smoke detectors should be installed on the ceiling of your home for the best detection. There are two common kinds of detectors to choose from – ionization and photoelectric. You should have smoke detectors on every floor of your home. If there are doors to rooms that you close often, have one installed in these rooms too.  Place smoke alarms away from rooms which make steam, like bathrooms, as steam can trigger the smoke detector. A majority of smoke detectors use double-sided tape to attach the device to the mount that goes on the ceiling. To install the detector correctly, you need to drill the mount into the ceiling, and then attach the smoke detector to the sticky mount.  

Replace the battery on your smoke alarm once a year. Most models let you know when the battery is low by emitting a short beeping sound every so often. You should also replace the entire device every ten years. Smoke alarms monitor the air regularly each day and can start to malfunction over time from exposure to insects, accumulated dust, corrosion, and airborne contaminants.  

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach can help restore and clean your home in Boynton Beach or the surround areas after a fire, ridding it of smoke odors. Reach out to us by dialing (561) 413-9754 as soon as the fire is out so we can prevent additional damage from smoke and soot.
