Professional Commercial Water Removal In Boynton Beach

While storm season is here, experienced Boynton Beach business owners know that their facilities are also at risk from other sources. For many companies, agencies, and other businesses, there can be as much threat from faulty sprinklers, broken pipes, and other plumbing issues as from the next hurricane.

Boynton Beach commercial water removal requires trained technicians. SERVPRO makes certain every employee qualifies as a Commercial Drying Specialist (CDS) before going out on a service call. The training is important, so the restoration team can quickly clear out the water and help the owner reopen his business.

In a warehouse operation, hundreds, even thousands of gallons of water can spread across the floor. In a large enough operation, this makes the water level too low for the pumps a CDS usually starts with for water removal. With this type of situation, team members utilize a series of extraction devices.

For corners, offices, and under tables or machinery, they use wands. These hand-portable extractors are more powerful versions of a water-vac and can quickly remove five or ten gallons depending on the size of the holding tank in less than an hour. Larger versions of this device remove water damage slightly faster and pump it out of the building.

CDSs also have access to larger extractors that connect to the facility’s power or a generator from our equipment inventory. SERVPRO technicians can walk behind or ride on these machines designed to work on concrete or wood floors, and even industrial carpeting. Depending on the number of square feet to clear, team members can use several of them to complete the task in a day or two.

After finishing that final task, they measure the humidity level with a moisture meter. If the level is too high, CDSs set up fans at the doors and windows to draw the damp air out of the building. Once the meter shows a normal humidity level, the team packs up their gear and returns a clean, dry facility to the owner.

At SERVPRO of Boynton Beach, we proudly serve our community businesses and local neighbors like Ocean Ridge and South Palm Beach. If your company is dealing with a water intrusion issue, call our office at (561) 413-9754 today to begin the removal process. We are here for you.

Difference Between Professional And DIY Water Removal In Boynton Beach Properties

When water damage happens in your home, fast cleanup is vital. There are a lot of actions property owners can take to remove the water they can see; however, the real damage occurs from the water that migrates to areas that are difficult to reach. The longer this excessive moisture remains, the more the potential for weakened building materials and mold growth.

When SERVPRO handles water removal in Boynton Beach homes, it is not uncommon to find the homeowner has already cleaned up some water using towels for blotting or mopping. Some homeowners have wet/dry vacuums they used on water loss areas. These are beneficial actions before our technicians arrive on site.

When our technicians spring into action, we utilize several professional tools for the fast removal of water, including:
    •    portable pumps for mobility
    •    weighted extractors to push the water out of saturated carpet
    •    wands for extracting water from hard-to-reach areas
    •    moisture detection equipment including probes and thermal imaging to locate any pocket of excessive moisture

Household fans dry a room eventually, but only on surfaces, and it does nothing about embedded moisture which has the potential to lead to both mold and foul odors if not extracted. SERVPRO technicians set up air movers in configurations unique to the job site and use the science of psychrometrics or the study of air and water vapor to dry rooms and hit drying goals quickly. They utilize the force of the airflow to pull moisture to the surface. Once there, our dehumidifiers capture the water vapor and port it away. This cycle continues and rapidly brings the humidity down in the room, which inhibits mold growth.

After drying, thorough hand cleaning of all water-affected surfaces eliminates water odors and leaves surfaces disinfected. Our professional formulas also help prevent the growth of mold and bacteria.

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach stands ready to come to assist homeowners with water removal to limit loss to both property and possessions. Call us at (561) 413-9754 because We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Why Struggle With Flood Damage Remediation in Boynton Beach Alone?

Storm Damage Why Struggle With Flood Damage Remediation in Boynton Beach Alone? Don't let flood damage take over your entire home. Contact SERVPRO today for remediation assistance.

SERVPRO Handles All Types of Flood Water Removal in Boynton Beach Homes

While flood damage may conjure up images of furniture floating in rooms or deep standing water in a home, the truth of what it looks like is often different. This area of Florida is no stranger to intense storms, and unless the water intrusion is related to a hurricane, it usually recedes quickly.

When SERVPRO arrives on-site to a Boynton Beach home that requires flood removal, often there is little to no standing water but left behind are excess moisture, sometimes even debris and frequently, odors.  Flood water carries a classification as category three or black water, the handling of it during mitigation requires protective equipment.

The more prolonged exposure to moisture happens, the more damage that occurs. Our technicians scope the room with moisture detection equipment to determine where water migrated to and begin extraction of the remaining water. The faster we remove as much excess moisture, the sooner we can dry the property.

Another standard procedure SERVPRO does for homeowners during flood mitigation is the pack-out of restorable items. As we place items from the property in boxes, technicians photograph them and create a detailed inventory for both the homeowner and insurance adjuster. This action allows for complete drying and disinfection in our facility. We offer secure storage in cases where damage to the home requires reconstruction and requires no restoration for the items.

Because of the high humidity and temperatures in this part of the state, the growth of mold is often a problem after a flood because spores can set up home as quickly as 48-hours. Preventing the growth of mold colonies is the reason why quick extraction of excessive moisture and bringing the indoor humidity down with our drying equipment is crucial.

For safety reasons when dealing with black water, we utilize EPA-registered disinfectants and antifungal solutions before, during and after water extraction and drying to heighten safety and keep bacteria and mold at a minimum risk during the exposure to water.

Contact SERVPRO of Boynton Beach at (561) 413-9754 when you need assistance with flood removal in your home. Our local certified technicians are available 24/7 to handle any level of water loss in your home and mitigate loss and arrive soon after your call because We're Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Condos can exist along the entirety of the Boynton Beach shoreline, and with so many units commonly sharing the same building, a single substantial loss incident could affect multiple condos at once.

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.

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.
