SERVPRO Removes Hidden Water in Boynton Beach Homes and Mitigates Damage

Broken Appliance Spillage Means Water Removal Specialists for Boynton Beach

It can surprise many residents in Boynton Beach at the number of water-using appliances inside their homes. These are not the only devices that can cause water mishaps in the house, however. During meal preparation, many families use the garbage disposal to get rid of discarded vegetables and other waste. A small leak can result in a small, steady drip then can damage the sink cabinet, walls, and floor.
 
In Boynton Beach, SERVPRO's water removal team can restore any such affected areas in your property. Extracting all of the moisture, cleaning up the area, and making it “Like it never even happened” remains our goal for all of our customers. Another culprit in causing such problems includes air conditioners window units that cannot keep up with the removal of moisture during heat waves and excessively humid periods. Drops of water that collect in the tray and then overflow into the window sill can cause problems inside the wall below.
 
While such situations happen in localized areas of your home, water can migrate to other areas quite easily and rapidly. We use thermal imaging cameras to find these locations. The appearance of cooler regions on the screen can indicate increased moisture content levels. Our technicians then test those areas to determine how much moisture they do contain, which helps determine the next course of action.
 
Drying an area of excess moisture and removing unwanted water needs to happen steadily. We do this to prevent moisture from seeping back into newly dried areas. Moisture travels from moister areas to drier ones, so once we achieve optimal dryness in materials, we do not want any moisture re-entering that location. Steady, continual drying prevents this and is why we request customers to not turn off machinery or other equipment without first letting us know. We want to obtain the best results possible for you at the lowest possible cost.
 
Since some materials dry more quickly than other materials, it is crucial that slower-drying materials receive more concentration of effort from air movers, heaters, and water extraction equipment than porous materials. Concrete, brick, and sealed areas take a long time to dry thoroughly. Vinyl wallpaper, some paints, and particular primers can make these areas retain moisture.
 
SERVPRO of Boynton Beach wants to help your home after both large and small disasters. Call us at (561) 413-9754, 24/7, to help make sure your home stays in excellent condition.

How SERVPRO Assists with Water Damage in Boynton Beach Retail Store

A plumbing mishap in a home can be costly and damaging. Commercial water damage to your business is even more so. Because it directly affects your livelihood when the business has to be unexpectedly closed for repairs. Customers tend not to want to wait and go elsewhere for products and services.

That is why are our emergency response teams are available around the clock to come to your location and limit water loss to property and contents.

There are frequently three levels of concern for damage from water in a retail store. The first is the water itself, which our technicians extract using portable pumps and wet items are removed for drying in our facility if necessary. The next issue is the possibility of mold growth with the warm, humid climate in this part of the state, it is a possibility that we address during the drying and disinfection phase of our cleanup. The third and final concern is the offensive odor that can remain in building materials and porous objects exposed to water.

Our technicians use different types of moisture detection equipment for different areas of the commercial property. Several readings are taken in the area of the water loss as well as unaffected areas to set drying goals. Once those are determined, the drying phase begins, and air movers force air across surfaces and pull water vapor upward where it is captured and removed by one of the different types of dehumidifiers we deploy during drying.

We know first impressions count, and our technicians leave commercial properties without any lingering reminders of a water loss event. Once the structure is verified as dry, our technicians hand clean and disinfect surfaces to return it to sanitary conditions. Often this is enough to neutralize odors. SERVPRO technicians are certified in the science of odor control and have various ways of eliminating stubborn odors at the molecular level if necessary.

Flood Damage Restoration In Your Boynton Beach Home

If you are blessed to have many beautiful, mature trees on your Boynton Beach property, you probably know that with this beauty comes some sacrifices. Branches hanging over your roof can cause problems during a big storm. If one branch winds up falling and puncturing your roofing membrane, it doesn’t take much time for flooding to occur in your attic and water to start dripping down through your ceiling.

When water has flooded through a damaged roof into your home, you want immediate help from a professional remediation company. SERVPRO is always standing by, and our staff is trained and experienced to handle all sizes of flood damage emergencies in Boynton Beach.

Upon arrival to your home, SERVPRO staff assess the damage. Any standing water which remains needs to be removed before we can continue the drying process. Depending on how high the water got, we may have to cut away a bottom section of drywall in the affected area and replace it with new. Once drywall gets saturated, it cannot be saved and has to be taken out.

Furniture and carpeting may need to be taken out and restored at a separate, secure location while we finish drying the rest of your home. Water can have different effects on furniture such as water spotting on upholstery and warping with woods. Carpet padding likely needs replacing once it is saturated, but it is easier and less costly to replace it than to try to dry it out.

Industrial fans and dehumidifiers help us dry out your structure. We monitor these machines daily and rotate them around the area when needed so that we get the fastest drying time possible. The longer the moisture remains, the more chance there is for additional damage, such as mold growth.

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach is always available to assist you with flood damage in your home in Boynton Beach or the surrounding areas after a massive storm. Once the storm has subsided, call us right away at (561) 413-9754 so we can get to you and help before more damage can be done.

Our team at SERVPRO is staffed with certified technicians that specialize in emergency mitigation of water damage to your Boynton Beach living space. Our priority is to leave your home in a preloss condition, "Like it never even happened." This approach not only ensures less loss of property in the event of water, fire, or storm damage but also saves you the cost of replacing furniture and other items in your home in the event of such disasters.
 
When our certified SERVPRO technicians come to your home to evaluate damage, moisture sensors are used to ensure a thorough inspection. Hard-to-reach areas behind walls and ceilings may require infrared cameras to evaluate whether there is "hidden" moisture to take care of. Once our technicians have an exact read on the moisture levels in your home, weep holes are drilled, if needed, to facilitate the movement of air during the drying process.
 
When it comes drying water-damaged surfaces, it is vital to pull moisture out of surfaces and remove it. For this reason, our professionals rely on industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers to work simultaneously. Air movers accelerate the drying process by pulling surface moisture into the air, and dehumidifiers absorb this moisture like a sponge and expel dry air. After drying, an EPA-registered disinfectant is used to aid in removing odors and preventing the growth of bacteria or mold.

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.

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

3/11/2019 (Permalink)

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.
