Boynton Beach Property Owners Rely on SERVPRO for Storm Damage Restoration Services

A Flood cut in Boynton Beach to Mitigate Damage and Repairs--Done Right by SERVPRO

What Can be Saved after Flood Damage in your Boynton Beach Home?

Finding your entire home, or several rooms covered in floodwaters creates a sense of loss immediately. Flooding causes a wide range of damages due to moisture action, microbial growth and contamination, especially when involving groundwater. Several items and building materials have to be thrown away after the incident, but it is also possible to save some. A professional flood damage restorer can help identify salvageable items immediately and take the necessary steps to restore them.

Saving Furniture
The loss of furniture items can add up the costs involved significantly. Salvaging upholstered items after flood damage in your Boynton Beach home is not always possible because of the clothing and other porous materials, which can retain contamination even after a thorough cleaning. Solid wood items, on the other hand, are salvageable. They only require sanitization and refinishing where necessary. Our SERVPRO technicians also ensure they dry in a controlled environment to prevent warping, cracking, and other physical damages.

What You Can Save on the Floor
The impact of flooding on floor materials is also substantial, considering they are submerged partially or fully during the incident. The heavily porous items such as carpets are unsalvageable because of the risk of contamination. Laminate floors are also unsalvageable because they swell quickly after absorbing water. It is possible to salvage hardwood flooring through quick action and the use of specialized techniques. Our SERVPRO technicians use high-efficiency equipment to extract standing water over the floor then use drying chambers for controlled drying. Among the equipment that helps us achieve this, includes:
Truck-mounted water extractors
Pressure washers
Drying mats
Injecti-dry system

What You Can Save on the Walls
Flooding also causes considerable damage to the walls. The damage affects submerged areas as well as elevated areas due to wicking water. Salvaging materials such as drywall and plaster is not possible once soaked. Our SERVPRO technicians make a flood cut a couple of inches above the water line to remove only the wet sections, saving the rest. It is also possible to save the frames and other structural supports through thorough cleaning and drying.  

Sanitizing, Deodorizing, and Disinfecting
The microorganisms that are always present in groundwater can be innocuous or can be harmful. Precautions during water removal, drying, and restoring the flood-damaged areas to preloss condition, when possible, often require patient, professionalism, and the right equipment. We strive to restore rather than replace structural materials, contents, and personal items.

Working with a professional flood mitigation team helps in many ways. Call SERVPRO of Boynton Beach at (561) 413-9754 to assist you. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Why Boynton Beach Can Rely On SERVPRO For Exceptional Home Restoration Services

Our restoration services have curated a selection of equipment and cross-trained technicians from the local area to serve commercial clients and residents throughout the state of Florida. Coastal communities like ours are especially at risk of weather-related property damages from high winds, to heavy rainfall to hurricanes. Experience and communication are the critical facets of our job with both providing us to return properties to their pre-existing condition. Our skill set covers mold, water, fire, and storm-related disasters that affect your Boynton Beach home. We know that these problems can happen at the most inconvenient times, which is why we operate a twenty-four-hour emergency line so you can always reach us in an emergency.

Storm
Florida, as a coastal community, is especially at risk of extreme weather events from tropical storms to hurricanes. So much so, that state-wide evacuation plans are in place for all residents of this community. The immediate priority during a storm situation is, of course, your safety. However, after the storm has subsided, you may return to a property where certain areas, or even the entire structure, is deemed uninhabitable. SERVPRO offers emergency restoration services for storm damage in Boynton Beach and the broader state of Florida.

Our customers value fast response times because they can significantly impact the overall timeframe of home restoration. Contractors cannot enter an unsound structure to reconstruct it, so it is the job of the restorer to check for hazards, contaminated water issues or weakening of the structure- which may present itself as waterlogged floors or ceilings. In the restoration service, we refer to this safety inspection as scoping.

Scoping can help a SERVPRO restorer to make vital adjustments to the situation of your property, which, if completed promptly, could prevent permanent damages. Chief among these adjustments is the removal of excess water, contaminants like raw sewage or animal carcasses as well as thorough drying of the structure. These tasks are preventative measures that could significantly reduce your claim rates by mitigating losses and avoiding expensive replacements.

Fire
First responders to a house fire, like firefighters, perform the first step in mitigating losses, dousing flames and securing the immediate structure. For residents with fire damage in Boynton Beach, the next steps are to bring in a trusted restoration service to further mitigate losses, remove debris or charred materials, and tackle odors. It is vital to arrange for a professional restorer immediately after the flames are put out like water, used in firefighting procedure, can set soots into surfaces or fabrics, resulting in permanent loss of contents.

SERVPRO restorers can enter the affected area of your Boynton Beach home wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) to conduct pre-tests on smoke residues and materials. There are several factors to consider in putting together a restoration service plan including the temperature of the fire, pressure, the type of materials that burned and the effect the fire has had on structural components like your Heating Ventilation and Air Condition (HVAC) unit. Removing all residues of smoke, soot, and charring is the priority for SERVPRO restorers.

Smoke residues can be tricky to remove because they adhere to surfaces under high pressure and high temperatures. Sometimes they can be embedded below the surface layer- a common issue in fabrics and upholstery. Using foam cleaning techniques to remove soiling from furnishing is essential when fabrics may shrink or bleed. Oil and water-based solvents can be applied to walls or hard surfaces to remove soiling while charred materials are removed from the property and disposed of safely. Once odor-causing items are cleansed from a property we can bring in fogging equipment, and neutralize any lasting odors to bring your property back to its pre-fire condition.

Water
From time to time water leaks may pose a threat to your home environment. Removing water in a short space of time and thoroughly drying the affected structure is essential to restoration water damage in Boynton Beach homes. The quicker the job can be finished, the less likelihood there is of permanent damages being sustained, which is why SERVPRO use local technicians to reduce call-out times.

Drying a structure presents many challenges to a restoration technician. Restricted access plays a huge role in the type of equipment that we can use to dry the property efficiently. A crawlspace, for example, may have restricted access and require portable extraction units alongside air movers fitted with a flex hose to create air circulation and encourage evaporation in a small space. Attic spaces also require removal of affected insulation as well as dehumidification.

Getting your Boynton Beach property to its reasonable, pre-water damage condition is about guaranteeing the structure, contents and cavities are dry. Moisture pockets can lead to serious mold problems further down the line, so SERVPRO takes regular readings of your property's psychrometrics- the balancing act of humidity, heat, and moisture- throughout the restoration period. Usually, once a property has dried odor, or staining issues are no longer apparent. When that is not the case, we can disperse odor-controlling solvents throughout using direct spraying methods.

Mold
Discovering mold in your property can be worrying. Mold colonies proliferate rapidly spreading through porous materials and possibly causing extensive mold damages to your Boynton Beach home's interior. Unchecked mold growth can be a health risk, so seeking professional restoration services to remediate your Boynton Beach property should be done as soon as possible.

When a mold remediation technician arrives on-site, they may need to move furniture around, block off parts of the home, or check beneath drywall and flooring. It is complicated to know the extent of mold infestation without tracing it physically through the home. Cleaning away the visible colonies is meaningless without remediating the source of mold- microbial infestations grow back without proper decontamination.

Stopping fungi at the source requires some understanding of what mold- and other microbes- need to grow. Like most organisms, microbes need water, food, and temperature to thrive. SERVPRO can dry the source of mold using structural cavity drying equipment. We can remove infested materials like drywall or insulation to remove microbial food supply. Using thermal hygrometers, our technicians can measure humidity and control it using dehumidification equipment. By removing the conditions for growth, our restoration services can remediate your Boynton Beach home from microbial growth issues.

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach is a well-established restoration service with a team of dedicated and skilled technicians on hand for water, mold, storm or fire issues in your property. Contact us today, at (561) 413-9754.

We Get You Back To Business In Boynton Beach After A Water Damage Disaster

SERVPRO can dry the concrete pad and prevent secondary water damage from circulating moisture by using temporary ducts (flat lay plastic).

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?

6/15/2019 (Permalink)

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.

Whenever disasters strike, give us a call at (561) 413-9754.

Removing Flood Water From Boynton Beach Condos

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. These properties are known for their expensive building materials, impressive amenities, and high-end aesthetic appeal, which can make it even more pressing to address flooding concerns as they happen to these residences. With the severe storms that can commonly run aground in the area, many have the force to damage roofs and windows for your condo, and this can allow direct water penetration and flooding quickly and severely.

While it might be bad enough that you need flood water removal for your Boynton Beach condo, there are other concerns that you must also have when this situation arises. The first consideration that you have to make is the effect on neighboring units, both sharing walls with your condo and those in floors lower than yours. No matter how the water damage spreads throughout your residence, there is no mistaking the possibility of it affecting other units unless you can get our SERVPRO professionals there quickly to set up containment and preventative measures.

Protecting your premium building materials is another concern that many property owners have in this situation, as reconstruction and remodeling a condo is not a cheap or quick project.

Our SERVPRO professionals can begin the recovery of your condo with effective extraction using our portable sump pumps or wet-vacs with extraction wands.

SERVPRO Removes Hidden Water in Boynton Beach Homes and Mitigates Damage

Large or Small Water Losses in Boynton Beach Evaporate into Thin Air Once SERVPRO Arrives

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.

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.

Residential Water Damage Cleanup for Your Boynton Beach Apartment

There are times when disasters strike when you least expect them. If you have ever come home from work only to find that a leaky pipe has left water damage in your apartment in the form of soggy walls, it is vital to find professionals who can mitigate the issue quickly to prevent the proliferation of mold, odors, or the swelling and warping of your walls.
 
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.

How Vital Is Fire Damage Assessment For Boynton Beach Homes?

While you might not ever want to consider the possibility of a fire in your Boynton Beach property, taking the right steps immediately to recover these effects and protect your investment is critical to reducing out-of-pocket expenses and stress in an already trying time. Our professionals have an emergency response team available 24/7 to respond to fires to provide effective mitigation and pack-out processes designed to keep at-risk items in your home safe from spreading fire effects.

When fire damage occurs in your Boynton Beach home, many areas of your property can become affected by both the spread of the flames during the disaster and the effects of lingering symptoms like carcinogens, soot, smoke residues, and odors. Our SERVPRO team has an estimation and inspection team to identify the full scope of the damage to your property and what must occur to restore your home completely.

While the first call that homeowners typically make after a disaster like a fire is to their insurance company for both advice and guidance, filing a damage claim is not as straightforward and simple as you might have believed. In most cases, your insurance adjuster requires a professional inspection of the property to determine the damage and to document losses to estimate recuperations and the expected costs of restoration and repairs. You can reach our SERVPRO team 24/7 to schedule a damage assessment of your property.

Many homeowners might believe that they could do this inspection and assessment on their own, many effects could be challenging to notice or understand the severity of when walking through the damaged property. Also, there are potential hazards and structural concerns that often accompany substantial fire loss incidents, which can make safely assessing the property without protective equipment and extensive expertise dangerous.

Fire emergencies can catch homeowners by surprise, but damage claims on your property require professional assessments and estimations to get approved. You can contact our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach estimator and mitigation team 24/7 by calling (561) 413-9754.

Our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach rapid response team can help.

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

3/11/2019 (Permalink)

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)

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.

Foul Odors Are No Match For Our Fire Damage Experts In Boynton Beach

Call SERVPRO of Boynton Beach at (561) 413-9754 to help.

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.

After Your Washing Machine Overflows, You Need Water Removal Services in Boynton Beach

Overloading the washing machine is not the only way that can cause it to overflow and flood your Boynton Beach residence. Using too much detergent, or the wrong kind can also create a problem. Another cause that we often see involves clogs in the drain. Any of these, or a slipped water line, can cause a disaster quickly.

When this happens in your home, you need someone with the expertise and equipment to perform water removal services in Boynton Beach immediately. SERVPRO® as goes our tagline; We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, promises also to work quickly and efficiently to restore your home. Depending on the volume of spillage we find, we start with the proper size extraction equipment. This might include submersible pumps but more likely involves only hand-held wands that quickly suction of water from floors. 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. The dehumidifiers restore a standard Relative Humidity RH level after large water spills to help prevent secondary damages from occurring like mold growth and rusting of metal fixtures.

Introducing the Simple Way to Mold Damage Remediation Success in Boynton Beach

1/31/2019 (Permalink)

Mold can spread very quickly inside your home. Call SERVPRO right away for an assessment and remediation services.

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)

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.

Mold and mildew can cause different problems to occur within your home, but we have the answers you need.

Mold Damage Is A Nightmare For Many Homeowners In Boynton Beach

When your Boynton Beach home suffers damage, thoughts about the loss experienced center around replacing the items, their cost, the inconvenience imposed by their absence, and even possible health effects by either their loss or the presence of damaged items.

SERVPRO technicians understand that your home needs an experienced team of specialists when a problem involves mold damage in Boynton Beach. We realize that you want the problem fixed and to know that your home is once again safe, “Like it never even happened.” Our training involves several methods to rid your home and many types of belongings of mold and mildew.

We use these methods when we remove damaged sections of housing materials. These include negative air chambers constructed of heavy gauge plastic, tubing, and air scrubbers. This kind of setup protects your home from spores and other things that can contaminate your home.

Another method involves scraping of materials that mold growth covers and getting these cleaned up. We scrape away the majority of the growth and then wipe everything down with clean water, continually rinsing out our sponges and cloths.

Dry ice pellets in our blasting equipment handle small spaces like attics and crawlspaces. Instead of manually scraping these areas free of mold and mildew, dry ice pellets peel the layers of microbes away and leave only clean materials afterward. The dry ice simply dissolves into CO2 when it reaches room temperature. This is the same as the air you exhale, so the process is entirely safe.

After we remove mold, we use vacuums with HEPA filters to remove the leftover spores and mold from the areas remediated. We clean everything up thoroughly and also treat those areas with antifungal agents that, when dry, prevent any regrowth in the treated sections.

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach wants to help you recover your home after mold tries to move in and take over. We use different ways to get things back under your control and provide you with useful information to help prevent future problems with mold damage. Mold and mildew can cause different problems to occur within your home, but we have the answers you need. Call our crew at (561) 413-9754, so we can help you.

What Few People Know About Water Removal in Boynton Properties

11/18/2018 (Permalink)

Water damage can quickly turn into a mold infestation. Contact SERVPRO promptly for remediation and to help prevent mold.

Water Removal Actions For Boynton Home

Despite our location on Florida’s east coast, most Boynton Beach flooding incidents are the result of mundane problems like a failing T&P valve on a water heater or a split hose on the washing machine. Regardless of the source, it is very important to quickly get the excess water off the floors and out of the home.
 
For Boynton Beach, water removal means preserving the interior of a home before water damage becomes permanent. SERVPRO restoration teams use an extensive inventory of equipment to protect the structure of each residence, regardless if it is a single family house, duplex, or apartment building.
 
First, we stop the flow of water into the home. The team leader turns off the water if needed, and then examines the source of the leak. Our specialists can replace a split hose quickly and make other, minor repairs. If the problem is a major break or another plumbing issue, the team leader recommends bringing a licensed plumber for repairs while we continue working.
 
If the water is over two or three inches in depth, we start with commercial grade pumps. Since this is considered clean water, with no contaminants, our teams can direct the outflow into the street along the curb or directly into the nearest sewer grate.
 
Once the level is down to less than an inch, SERVPRO technicians have two options, depending on the size of the home. For most residences, they switch to extraction wands which draw water off floors and out of carpets. For larger homes or in very long hallways and common areas in some apartment buildings, they may use a riding extractor.
 
Technicians can ride on the larger device, using their weight to depress the carpets further and remove more water with every pass. If there is a carpet pad, team members roll up the carpet and remove it. Pads quickly deteriorate when soaked and are cheaper to replace than waste labor hours trying to dry them.
 
It is also necessary to reduce the humidity in the home to a normal level. That makes the environment more comfortable and helps eliminate the risk of mold growing in the home. Our technicians use fans to increase air circulation and dehumidifiers to draw up to 25 gallons of water from the air per day.
 
Our goal at SERVPRO of Boynton Beach is to return your home to its original condition as quickly and safely as possible. If you are dealing with a water problem in your home, call us today at (561) 413-9754 to schedule a visit.

What Goes Into Our Flood Damage Restoration Process That Will Restore Your Boynton Beach Home

10/30/2018 (Permalink)

Water can build up outside quickly and eventually force its way inside your house causing flood damage to occur.

Flood Damage Techs In Boynton Beach Talk About Issues That Can Occur After A Storm

If a violent storm ever strikes the Boynton Beach area, it can create a very frightening situation. Water can build up outside quickly and eventually force its way inside your house causing flood damage to occur. The number of claims resulting from storm-related damage has been on a steady climb for the last fifteen years. During the last 5 years, there have been over $1.2 billion in claims each year. The worst part is that flood damage is not covered under some homeowner's insurance policies.

The first thing to do once a storm hits is to make sure you and your family are safe. After the storm passes, it is then wise to call in SERVPRO's flood damage experts in Boynton Beach to assess the situation. As soon as our professionals receive your call, we show up and start by making sure your home is safe to occupy after the suffering the storm's wrath.

Once our SERVPRO team decides everything is safe and free of potential safety hazards, we inspect the entire home for problems. To determine if materials got wet or not we use specialized moisture sensors. If water comes in from the outside and gets in from lower door seals, then the carpet is usually the first item in your home to start absorbing moisture. If this is the case, we use our sensors and follow the wet carpet until we find a dry area.

In severe situations, the carpet may become so wet that it starts to delaminate. When this occurs, we remove the carpet and pad and focus on drying out the subfloor and other structural materials. To dry out subflooring, we use a combination of dehumidifiers and air movers to speed up the evaporation rate.

If the water gets deep inside your house, the drywall may start to soak up moisture. If the lower section of your wall covering material got saturated, then we may have to remove some of the drywall. If the wet area is only in the lower sections of the walls, then we can get away with just making a "flood cut" a foot or two up from the floor. If your home gets devastated by a vicious storm, call SERVPRO of Boynton Beach at (561) 413-9754 any time of the day.

Cracking the Mold Damage in a Boynton Home Code

10/21/2018 (Permalink)

When leaks are allowed to continue for a long time, mold can develop in your home. Call SERVPRO for mitigation services.

How to Avoid Serious Effects of Mold Damage in Boynton

While odors and discoloration of surfaces are the two most disconcerting aspects of mold damage, infestations can cause other serious problems. For example, when left unaddressed for a long time, the hyphae can grow deep into organic materials such as wood compromising their strength. If such wood forms part of the structure's framing, a long-term infestation can lead to structural integrity issues in your Boynton home. Exposure to a moldy environment for a long time can also lead to some health problems.
 
Dealing with mold damage in Boynton before it develops fully is the best way to avoid serious problems. Actions like fixing leaks immediately after detection, and drying the property thoroughly when there is water intrusion help. However, severe mold infestations mostly originate in hidden spaces such as wall cavities or attics where it takes time before the early signs can be detected. When you suspect mold infestation, our SERVPRO technicians can help inspect your entire structure including the hidden spaces nipping the problem at the bud.
 
Mold can turn to a nagging problem that you have to deal with repeatedly if you fail to fix the root of the problem. Luckily, excess moisture fuels most mold infestations so locating the moisture source, or drying the property helps guarantee long-term results. If it is a case of flooding, extracting the water and removing porous materials should be enough. However, in case of a plumbing leak or other situations such as water leaching into the property from the ground, a lot more needs to be done.
 
Cleaning up residues from the mold growth is essential. Although mold spores are omnipresent allowing growth to happen anywhere the conditions are right, removing the residues helps ensure they do not spread to areas such as air ducts where they can cause long-term problems. Our SERVPRO technicians HEPA vacuum, or damp wipe the affected surfaces. When cleaning, we start from the top of the structure moving to the bottom because spores settle downward.
 
Taking the right action can help prevent long-term mold problems. Call SERVPRO of Boynton Beach at (561) 413-9754 to assist. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Our Fool-Proof Formula For Easy Fire And Smoke Damage Restoration In Your Boynton Beach Home

10/8/2018 (Permalink)

As traumatic as fire damages can feel in your home, knowing what to do to get the process started towards recovery is critical.

Overcoming Smoke Damage From A Fire In Your Boynton Beach Home

While there are many damaging effects that disasters can present to your Boynton Beach home, sometimes the secondary effects are even harder to face. That is often the case with a situation like a fire that affects a home, the primary effects are challenging to overcome, but the secondary effects make it hard to even be around the home throughout its restoration work.

As traumatic as fire damages can feel in your Boynton Beach home, knowing what to do to get the process started towards recovery is critical. From the moment that the first responders leave the scene and the fire has gotten successfully extinguished, you should take a few minutes to speak on the phone with your insurance provider about what you need to do next. Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to get the evidence and estimate that your provider needs to file a claim, and then help you overcome the damages the house itself has sustained.

One of the things that many owners struggle the most with, in being around their house following a fire, is the odor. Smoke damages can thicken the atmosphere with a noxious scent that is challenging to stay around and can prove potentially harmful to your health in the right conditions. With an education in the use of personal protective equipment, our SERVPRO technicians can gear up and work to remove this foul-smelling presence in your home with the use of deodorizing equipment such as thermal foggers.

This process breaks apart the odor molecules with a dense, chemical fog from the machine. This chemical solution itself is odorless, making it a safe piece of equipment to use on carpets, fabrics, clothing, surfaces, and the open environment in affected areas to remove the smoke damage thoroughly.

Our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach professionals can help you through every step of the process from meeting the needs of the insurance provider to expedite the claim to seeing the work through to completion and returning the restored home to you. Give SERVPRO a call anytime that you need us at (561) 413-9754.

Why Effective Water Damage Remediation is Always a Priority in Boynton Beach

9/30/2018 (Permalink)

When your toilet overflows, whether from a clog or broken parts, the damage ensues. Contact SERVPRO to dry out your home.

Broken Toilet Could Lead to Water Removal Needs in Your Boynton Beach Home

Sometimes the smallest of situations that occur in your Boynton Beach residence can have severe consequences. Fixtures within your bathroom like toilets offer the conveniences of modern living, but also pose an ever-present threat when wear and tear on supply lines and water piping lead to situations like breaks or disconnections. When you get posed with an emergency situation like this, professional restoration services can help you to limit the spread of the damage and return your home to preloss conditions.  

One of the most pressing concerns about a situation like this in your home, beyond the apparent need for water removal services in Boynton Beach, is how quickly the situation can spread to new areas of your home. If possible, you can shut down the supply of water to the fixtures or to the bathroom itself to help prevent more water continually flowing into the already affected area and making the situation worse. Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly to the emergency and help you to mitigate some of the potential loss that could have resulted, but also formulate a plan to return your home to the way it should be.

With a substantial water loss situation like this, our SERVPRO technicians often choose portable pumps on our truck-mounted equipment to extract the pooling water from the area quickly. We can fixate on moisture and dampness removal with the use of dehumidifiers and air movers once the bulk of the excess water has gotten removed from the area. This extraction also provides an opportunity to see what materials might have become irreparably damaged through oversaturation, or what areas require more concentrated drying efforts to preserve.

It might not seem as though a toilet could cause all that much damage to your home, but when a supply line disconnects or breaks, things can turn catastrophic quickly. In an emergency, you can always depend on our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach rapid response team to arrive quickly and work fast to reduce the effects of the disaster in your home. We are available 24/7 by calling (561) 413-9754.

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach Leads the USS North Carolina Recovery After Hurricane Florence

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach Leads the Recovery Efforts at Iconic U.S.S. North Carolina After Hurricane Florence

When Hurricane Florence Hit North Carolina, our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach Team Responded Quickly

Now that Hurricane Florence has ended, North Carolina residents are returning to the homes they were forced to evacuate to escape the extreme conditions that the storm presented. As life-threatening as the hurricane was and the devastation that it caused, the time has come to rebuild and restore these effects and move forward. While local crews are working around the clock to bring homes and businesses back to preloss conditions, these widespread disasters are more than these experienced crews can handle on their own.

Even before the damage had fully gotten assessed to North Carolina properties, our National Recovery team at our SERVPRO franchise was gearing up the convoy of vehicles to head North to aid those that needed our expertise at this trying time. Our current project would be the welcome center of the iconic docked battleship the U.S.S. North Carolina. This 13,000 square foot building suffered flooding throughout the whole structure when the roof failed as the hurricane passed through.

The National Recovery team that we dispatch from our SERVPRO franchise is one of only a handful in the country. We load up our industry-leading equipment and travel to wherever our expertise and experience is necessary, and this iconic building in North Carolina was where our journey continues in the disaster relief for the damaged Carolinas.

Even though we have the capacity and the personnel to dispatch a team of our experts to help recover properties lost to the hurricane, we remain dedicated to the communities we serve here in Florida as well. You can depend on our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach technicians to help you through any disaster that you face. Give our emergency response team a call whenever you need us at (561) 413-9754.

The Real Truth Behind Commercial Mold Damage Remediation in Boynton Beach

9/22/2018 (Permalink)

Your patrons expect a delicious meal and a wonderful ambiance. Contact SERVPRO should your restaurant be affected by mold.

Overcoming Mold Damage in Your Boynton Beach Restaurant

When you serve food to the public of Boynton Beach, many rules and regulations dictate guidelines for cleanliness, safety, health awareness and more. While you might focus the most on the experience for your patrons and ensuring that their entrees are ideal, maintaining the building is also a critical element to running a restaurant. When situations like mold arise, it requires immediate action.

While the mold damages in Boynton Beach that could occur to your restaurant might be bad enough, mold growth in your business could significantly impact your reputation and your ability to stay in compliance with health regulations. The source and cause of this mold can vary from place to place, but the action you should take remains the same: contact professional remediation services like our SERVPRO technicians.

One of the first things that a restaurant owner needs to think about is the impact that mold growth can have on the customers and employees entering the building. It is more widely understood than ever before that exposure to mold colonies can potentially cause health effects. This situation immediately takes you out of compliance for a safe environment for your employees or patrons, so getting the colony removed immediately is critical.

Not only is it a potential hazard to those who enter the building and get exposed to the colony, but it also can cause substantial damages to the contents of the affected areas such as furniture, flooring, walls, and other surfaces. As mold colonies spread, they feed on organic materials they use for the colonization efforts. This process degrades and erodes the material until our SERVPRO remediation specialists have no options but to use controlled demolition techniques and the material must get replaced entirely.

Running a business comes with a long list of stresses, but the discovery of mold growth in your business should inspire immediate action on your part. Our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach applied microbial remediation technicians are part of our rapid response team that can show up quickly and helps to limit the spread of this colony while measures begin to remove this organism from the premises. Give our emergency team a call today at (561) 413-9754.

How To Clean Ceilings And Walls During Fire Damage Restoration In Boynton Beach

9/10/2018 (Permalink)

It is vital to pretest for cleanability during fire damage restoration.

How To Clean Ceilings And Walls After A Fire

It is vital to pretest for cleanability during fire damage restoration. For example, the procedures we use when cleaning painted and unpainted surfaces are not the same. At the same time, some buildings may be having acoustical ceilings while some may be having different surfaces. It is the work of the restorer to choose the best cleaning procedure when attending to such issues in Boynton Beach.

There are three common procedures that our SERVPRO technicians use when cleaning walls and ceilings of most buildings in Boynton Beach during fire damage restoration. The first method is wet cleaning. We prefer this method when we are cleaning heavy soot residues or dry ash that is settling on painted wood ceilings or metal. The second technique is the dry cleaning sponge which we use when cleaning light-to-medium soiling that is resting on all types of ceilings. We use this method prior to employing the wet cleaning method, and it only addresses non-grease based soiling.

The third method is known as the peroxide active cleaning procedure. Our SERVPRO technicians prefer this method when cleaning nicotine and heavy tar soiling from non-porous, porous, and acoustical ceiling surfaces. If there are chances of dissolving the blown ceilings' coating by using aggressive wet cleaning methods, then this method is the best option.

Let us also look at the tips that our SERVPRO technicians adhere to when performing dry cleaning and wet cleaning procedures. When applying dry cleaning methods, we start from the ceiling region before going ahead to clean the walls. After cleaning the walls, we can then clean the floors. The idea is to avoid resoiling clean surfaces if we do the wiping from dirty regions. On the other hand, we start by cleaning the walls and then move to the ceiling when we are using wet cleaning procedures. By doing this, we make sure the cleaning agent does not drip onto a soiled area and cause streaking.

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach has the needed expertise and experience to handle both commercial and residential cleaning needs. Call us at (561) 413-9754 when you need to work with a trusted leader who offers proven restoration services.

Residential Water Cleanup In Boynton Beach

8/30/2018 (Permalink)

Homes can flood from a hurricane or other extreme weather incident, but most residential water problems result from failed plumbing issues.

Residential Water Cleanup

Boynton Beach homes can flood from a hurricane or other extreme weather incident, but most residential water problems result from failed plumbing issues. Removing the water and restoring each home can be simpler than when it floods from rainwater, but there can still be problems depending on how it entered the home.

Tasks needed to complete a Boynton Beach home water cleanup are different if the water came from an inlet pipe, a split hose, or most other plumbing issues. The water from these sources is considered clean, and SERVPRO team members can begin removing water from inside the home immediately.

If the water entered the home through a backed up toilet, a sewer line, or a damaged septic tank, then it is contaminated with human waste and is designated as ‘black’ water, which poses a health threat to everyone in the home. Technicians don protective gear to include rubber boots, protective suits, and masks or breathing gear depending on the extent of the contamination. Team members then spray the water and nearby surfaces with an anti-bacterial agent to reduce the health risk.

As SERVPRO team members remove this water, they pump it directly into the nearest sewer access point for disposal. If there is no sewer system nearby, then they pump all contaminated water into a tank truck for storage and delivery to a water treatment facility.

With clean water, technicians can draw water out of the carpets and then lift them to facilitate drying and then reattach them. Usually, we recommend removing and replacing the carpet pad since it is more expensive to spend the labor hours attempting to dry one than it is to purchase a new pad.

When the water is contaminated, the team leader knows to remove the carpet and dispose of it immediately. There is no way to guarantee that cleaning the carpet results in a 100 percent success and the risk to residents is too great to attempt anything else.

After removing the carpet, team members clean the wood or concrete floors using an anti-bacterial cleaner to kill any contamination and then use either a water extraction wand or a long-handled squeegee to remove surface water.

These are just the first steps that SERVPRO of Boynton Beach takes to return your home to a clean, safe condition. If you are dealing with the results of a recent water incident, call our office at (561) 413-9754 with questions, or to schedule a visit. We are here for you.

Options For Boynton Beach Residents To Properly Deal With Flood Damage

8/23/2018 (Permalink)

Those who have experienced flood damage know the kind of stress that such incidents bring along.

Flood Damage

Those who have experienced flood damage know the kind of stress that such incidents bring along. The worst thing is that the destruction gets worse as time goes by, which means the issues need much urgency. Since the Boynton Beach area is prone to heavy rains and storms, staying prepared and working with professionals can help in mitigating the damage.

Our SERVPRO technicians choose the appropriate equipment to remove water from your Boynton after a flood damage incident. Some of the extractors can remove standing water from floors, as well as clean your upholstery and carpets. When we are performing cleaning, we use all the components of a water extractor - vacuum system, heater, and pump. Otherwise, we mostly use the vacuum component during the mitigation process.

There are two categories of water extractors - truck mounted and portable extractors. We use the portable ones when removing water from areas with limited access, and their tank size is usually between 5 - 12 gallons, and have a water lift of around 140 inches. On the other hand, truck-mounted extractors are robust with a storage tank that ranges from 60 - 100+ gallons and have a water lift of between 185.71 - 198.98 inches.

The aggressiveness of the extraction tool is one of the factors that our SERVPRO technicians consider when choosing the equipment. The water can make the carpets to become weaker, which means aggressive extraction may lead to delamination. We usually use more massive devices when extracting water from heavy carpeting. We perform thorough extraction before we can use other drying techniques such as dehumidification. The use of pumps is also helpful during water extraction – though we first make sure there are no solid particles in the standing water.

Whether you are a commercial and residential property owner, you can rely on SERVPRO of Boynton Beach for water and fire damage restoration services. Call us today at (561) 413-9754 and allow us to restore your property to its preloss state professionally.

Avoiding Mold Growth in Your Boynton Beach Home

8/12/2018 (Permalink)

Finding mold on the walls of your home can be something that causes panic. Call us at SERVPRO to quickly come out and remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Technicians Understand That Many Factors can Lead to Mold Damage in a Residence

While it might seem like common knowledge that mold growth in your Boynton Beach home could be problematic for the house and its occupants, many homeowners drag their feet on taking care of the problem when they discover it in their homes. One thing that is certain, no mold growth goes away on its own.

Apart from the potential health effects that you could experience due to mold damages in your Boynton Beach residence, the house itself is also at risk. This organism breaks down organic material as it grows and thrives, eating through vital construction materials used throughout your residence. There are some ways to avoid its growth altogether, and these are helpful in preventing this damaging presence in your house.

Moisture plays a vital role in the colonization of mold spores. It is why our SERVPRO professionals look to isolate and repair the source of moisture and dampness when we get dispatched to a remediation project. Lingering and persistent dampness is a food source for naturally occurring microscopic mold spores, allowing them to seat into organic materials in the area and begin to spread.

There are areas of your home that get used less than others, such as your attic space. Roof damages from storms passing through the area can allow for moisture leeching into this space above the ceiling. If the moisture does not get resolved, it can allow for microbial growth in as little as three days. Regular inspections throughout these less used areas of your home can help you to identify problems before they get out of control.

This inspection is another one of the services that our SERVPRO team can offer, helping to provide you with some assurance that mold colonization has not occurred in your home. Furthermore, our technicians can identify potential risks and hazards, preventing a colony from forming by restoring water damages as they get discovered.

It might not be easy to think of mold growth in your home, but it is something that must get addressed as quickly as possible. With the risks to both the occupants of the house and the building itself, trust in the rapid response of our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach remediation technicians. You can reach our team 24/7 by calling (561) 413-9754.

Businesses in Boynton Beach require a certain level of cleanliness and safety to meet standards set in place by federal and state institutions and offices.

Not only do you have to contend with the various commercial mold damage in Boynton Beach created by the thriving colony, but also have to work to limit exposure to this colony in your business.

One of the first concerns that should have you reaching out to SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians is the safety and well being of your staff and customers.

This exposure can lead to potential health effects, much of which you would be responsible for by not taking care of the problem when it first got discovered.

Another consideration that you should make as the owner of a business is the profits that you stand to lose with your business entirely shut down by inspectors from the health department or some other similar authoritative branch. Choosing professional remediation with SERVPRO ensures that the affected area gets sectioned off from the rest of the building and that you can remove this active colony as efficiently as possible.
 
Mold damage in your business requires immediate action to remedy.

Storm Damages That Allow Flooding To Your Boynton Beach Residence

7/19/2018 (Permalink)

One singular severe storm can do significant damage to your roof or siding on the house and allow flood damages to occur.

Storm Damage

Homeowners in Boynton Beach are familiar with the high-powered storm systems that can roll in with little warning from the Atlantic. With high winds and varying precipitations, the siding and roof of your house are at the greatest risks of failure. Even more to the point, once the exterior defenses of your house have failed, the inside of your home is at considerable risk for flooding.

The most substantial problem with storm damages occurring to your house is that you cannot often safely assess the severity of these problems until water has already started to penetrate through vulnerable points. Not only do you have to face the issues that the storm has caused the exterior of your home, but now you have to battle worsening flood damages to your Boynton Beach residence as well.

While our SERVPRO estimator can get to work on the necessary information that your insurance company needs to proceed with a claim, these situations often have to be a joint effort between our restoration expertise and the tradecraft of licensed residential contractors to help rebuild and repair overly damaged areas in your home's roof and siding.

Mitigation efforts still occur in this time, however. While our SERVPRO technicians cannot fully restore your home until the necessary repairs have finished on the outside, there is still work that we do to prevent worsening conditions. This mitigation process aids our professionals in later being able to restore your home to preloss conditions more efficiently.

Finding a residential contractor is a process where many homeowners may feel inexperienced. In this case, you can refer the decision to a trusted and reputable company that either your insurance company selects on your behalf or one that our team of restorers has worked with before.

One singular severe storm can do significant damage to your roof or siding on the house and allow flood damages to occur. The right professional restoration team can help you to get your home back to original conditions as quickly as possible. Give our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach rapid responders a call today at (561) 413-9754.

As small in size as individual mold particles come, the presence of mold can still cause problems anywhere inside a Boynton Beach residence. Porous materials are particularly vulnerable, even when their components come from non-cellulose sources. This includes concrete and stone because these building materials often contain a multitude of cracks, grooves, and other locations where microbes can hide.

Protecting your house in Boynton Beach from mold damage requires that you regain and continue to maintain control of the environment inside your property. This invasive microorganism requires moist conditions and a food source. While an absence of cellulose fibers may slow its growth down considerably, dust and other debris can provide mold with enough materials to sustain it.

SERVPRO provides mold damage remediation that involves several different steps which together make your home “Like it never even happened.” Each of these steps strengthens the other methods we use and helps keep mold and other microbes like mildew from returning later.

Containing the Area
We set up plastic sheeting to make close off the areas where the mold damage exists. We use the enclosure and powerful air movers to create negative pressure which pushes microbes, spores, and any dust outside your home. As we bag up sections of drywall, paneling, and other materials that contain mold, dust can become quite substantial.

Cleaning the Air
We clean the air in your home near the area we find mold in to help eliminate spores that already found their way into uncontaminated places. Air scrubbers come with HEPA filters that remove spores and microbes from the air.

Treating the Area
We use antimicrobial agents to help keep mold from coming back. These agents are safe around children, pets, and plants once dry. They also dry clear, and without any visible changes to the areas, we apply them.

Lowering Humidity to a Normal Range
Getting rid of excess moisture inside your home often means tracking down its source. Some residential properties contain more than one of these problem areas. SERVPRO technicians use hygrometers to locate these areas. Only then can we stop the unwanted moisture from coming into your home's living space.

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach wants to help your family live in a home free of mold damage and the health effects an infestation can sometimes cause. Contact us today at (561) 413-9754 if your home contains a microbial infestation.

Water Damage Experts From Boynton Beach Explain Deodorization Methods

6/24/2018 (Permalink)

Regardless of the source of the water damage that you are facing, calling SERVPRO is a great choice for dealing with both odor and preventing mold.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Water Damage: Starting From Drying Out Services All the Way to Odor Removal

Whenever water enters a home in Boynton Beach, whether it is contaminated with harmful bacteria or not has to do with the source of the moisture. Water that leaks from freshwater pipes is clean and is considered clear or category 1 water. Moisture that comes from the outside or from sink drains may contain some bacteria and is classified as grey or category 2. If water containing mud from the outdoors gets into the house or a sewer line breaks, the water is considered to be highly contaminated with harmful bacteria and gets labeled as black water.
 
Any time moisture affects materials inside a structure, mildew-like odors can exist. When mitigating water damage in Boynton Beach, deodorization is the final step in the process. Grey and black water can also carry malodorous particles, and porous materials may have to be removed and replaced. When our SERVPRO technicians handle category 2, and 3 scenarios, deodorization occurs after all contaminated materials get removed.
 
When attempting to deodorize your house after water-related problems, various methods get implemented to make the home smell as clean as it did before the loss occurred. The first step to any deodorization process is to eliminate the source of the odor. When moisture is what is causing foul odors to exist, wet materials get vacuumed with advanced extraction equipment and dried out.
 
If pungent aromas are still present after moisture levels have returned to normal, various chemicals can get used to eliminate malodor particles. In affected areas of the carpet where lifting it up is not feasible, deodorant chemicals can be injected into the fabric with a syringe. Deodorant and disinfectant chemicals get sprayed using a hand pump or powered sprayer after damage occurs to help eliminate pungent odors and inhibit microbial growth.
 
In other situations, our SERVPRO restoration team uses ventilation methods and air scrubbing to reduce the presence of mildew-like fragrances. When odors remain in the air after the source of the foul smell gets removed, we can use heavy duty ventilating box fans to blow out the contaminated air. Air scrubbers can be set up to remove harmful particles from the building's airflow.
 
If one method of deodorization does not work, then other systems get implemented until the air smells fresh and clean. In many scenarios, chemicals with pleasant aromas get applied to mask unpleasant ones. If your home ever smells like mildew after a water leak, call SERVPRO of Boynton Beach at (561) 413-9754 24/7.

Gutter and French Drain Failures Can Lead to Flooding in Your Boynton Home

5/28/2018 (Permalink)

Any drain around the home, including gutters, helps keep water from flooding your home. Contact SERVPRO for an assessment or remediation services.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate a Current Flooding Scenario or Can Suggest Preventative Measures for Homeowners

You might not think about it very often, but your Boynton home has a lot of precautionary implements installed to help prevent disasters like flooding from occurring. Your french drain around the perimeter of the foundation of your home is an excellent example of this. Additionally, the gutter systems that outline the edges of the roof of your house are another way to keep considerable water from ending up where it could pose a threat.

When any of these preventative measures fail or become ineffective, your Boynton home can fall victim to flood damages. While our SERVPRO team can help you to clean up the mess and dry up the areas of your home that became affected by the substantial water damage, understanding how these precautionary implements work for your home and how you can keep them running correctly is essential to preventing this kind of problem for your home.
 
Our SERVPRO team can help you to identify the primary source of the flood waters in your home and offer suggestions for repairs and solutions beyond the nature of our industry. With everything running as it should, we can get to work on extracting the water pooling in your home using either portable pumps and vacuums or a pump truck from our fleet if the water damage is severe enough.

Drying the area follows after the extraction process, and this typically involves the combined use of air movers and dehumidification equipment. Getting the area thoroughly dry is imperative to preventing compounding damages like mold growth. Lingering moisture can create this hazard in your home in as little as 72 hours, so getting the area dried completely and quickly is critical.

While you might not be aware of how some of the precautionary implements installed in your homework to divert water, a general understanding of these items can help you to keep them working as they should. If you do experience flood damages, our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach team of water damage restoration technicians can help you to get your house back to its original condition quickly.

Important Facts To Help You Counter Mold Damage In Boynton Beach

5/8/2018 (Permalink)

Mold damage results typically when moisture is present in your structure, and you fail to remove it as soon as possible.

Important Facts About Mold Damage

Mold damage results typically when moisture is present in your structure, and you fail to remove it as soon as possible. Since the mold spores are present almost everywhere, when they settle on water, it is a matter of time before the mold grows. In case of a water intrusion, drying your Boynton Beach facility as well as removing all the water-damaged contents should be among the first steps when restoring your property.

Sometimes it is possible to spot mold damage in your Boynton Beach home, while in some cases it can hide behind your cushions, carpets, and walls. As far as there was a water intrusion incident in your property and you are not in a position to dry your home within 24 -48 hours, we advise you to work with qualified professionals like our SERVPRO team to analyze the extent of the moisture problem.

Exposure to areas with mold contamination can cause health effects, and that means cleaning and disinfection should start immediately. There are some safety standards which our SERVPRO team observes when working for you to stay protected against hazards. We wear a full-face, or half-face respirator to help us safely breathe in a moldy site, wear protective gloves and goggles to protect our skin and eyes respectively.

Our SERVPRO technicians understand there is a risk of spreading the spores to uncontaminated areas and as a result employ containment measures. For instance, we can shut down the HVAC system, use plastic sheeting to isolate the site, as well as generate negative pressure to prevent the mold spores from moving to a clean area.

We use detergents with antimicrobial properties to clean moldy materials where necessary, in cases where it is not possible to do the cleaning, we remove the content and seal them in plastic bags. Improving the quality of air after removing and cleaning the mold is necessary as we achieve that through deodorization.

At SERVPRO of Boynton Beach, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster whether it is storm, mold, fire, and water-related. Call us at (561) 413-9754 and get served by a proven industry leader.

Water Damage Restoration in Boynton Beach After an Appliance Failure

Appliance Causing Water Damage in Boynton Beach? Call SERVPRO for Extraction

Boynton Beach Properties Receive Rapid Water Removal from SERVPRO

Unwanted water in your house is never fun. Disaster can strike when the hose on your washing machine came loose while doing the laundry and now a large area of your home is covered with standing water. This water can damage your personal items such as photos, clothing, documents as well as harm the flooring, walls, and the appliance. Understandably, the ordeal can be highly frustrating and overwhelming. Quickly, if possible, turn off the electricity and the water supply line.

Now you have to deal with water damage in your Boynton Beach home after a long and tiring day. Acting fast is your best option for mitigating the damage. The large amount of standing water needs to be removed from the floor as soon as possible. Our skilled, licensed and highly trained SERVPRO technicians can be trusted to do the job, so contact us right away.

Upon arrival, we can inspect and assess the affected areas to determine what actions are needed to extract the water, and dry out your home to its preloss condition, if possible. We can set up truck-mounted and portable equipment to suction out the pooling liquid even as we move belongings away from the water. Heavy furniture can be placed on wood or foam blocks so that water does not wick into the wooden legs or soak the fabrics. We strive to restore and not replace furnishings, possessions, and building materials. Most water damaging events are not major with vast volumes of water requiring extraction, but large or small SERVPRO team members work hard to reduce adverse effects.

After the water has been extracted, the drying process can continue utilizing commercial grade equipment. We can strategically place air movers, axial fans, and dehumidifiers first to sweep moisture from the wet surfaces and then capture the water vapor. This method also helps to mitigate secondary damage (items not initially affected by the unwanted water) from occurring. These procedures include drying hidden pockets of moisture under the flooring, inside wall cavities, and other nooks and crannies. Mold can start to develop in 24-48 hours, so rapid drying reduces the chances of colonies forming.

Our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach team can clean up and restore your water damaged home so that you feel "Like it never even happened." Contact us at (561) 413-9754 for 24/7 service.

Boynton Beach's Fire Damage Content Cleaning Techniques

4/16/2018 (Permalink)

Whenever a fire takes place inside your Boynton Beach home, many different types of damage can take place.

Fire Damage Content Cleaning Techniques

Whenever a fire takes place inside your Boynton Beach home, many different types of damage can take place. The flames and heat generated by the blaze often burn and char items causing them to get removed and replaced. In other scenarios, smoke coming from the burn spreads across the building and damages items all over the house.

Smoke many times leaves behind soils and soot residues that damage contents. SERVPRO's fire damage technicians in Boynton Beach have experience in cleaning building materials and contents after smoke affects them. Smoke also causes pungent odors to exist inside the home.

When restoring problems caused by a blaze, contents and materials get cleaned, and we attempt to deodorize everything inside the building. Sometimes we pack up all of the contents inside your house and move them to an off-site area for cleaning. By packing out your contents, we can better clean the items and mitigate issues with building materials.

Whenever we remove contents from your home, we keep an inventory record of what we moved out. We then carefully pack your items into boxes and safely move them to a storage facility. When we are ready to clean the items, we move them from the storage area to our cleaning room.

Once the items are inside the cleaning room, we unpack all of the boxes checking the inventory list to make sure that everything moved out got into the cleaning area. We then use specialized soot removal chemicals to clean each item individually. Every item that was affected by smoke gets cleaned so that residues do not ruin the items or cause foul odors to be present inside the home.

After each affected item is clean of smoke residues, the contents go through a final deodorization process. Some porous materials hold pungent odors even after they have been cleaned. When foul smells inside items still exist, we use a fogging machine or ozone system to remove the rest of the malodor particles.

After we clean and deodorize all of your affected items, we create a new cleaned items inventory list. We then double check and make sure the items on the clean list match to the original list of items that we moved out of your house. We then carefully repack all of your items so that they do not get damaged moving them back to our clean item storage unit.

After the mitigation project is complete, we move all of your contents from our "clean" storage area back into your home. Any time you need professional help with problems at your residence, call SERVPRO of Boynton Beach at (561) 413-9855 24/7.

Why Mold Damage in Your Boynton Bookstore Requires Immediate Attention

4/9/2018 (Permalink)

If mold begins to grow in your bookstore, call the professionals at SERVPRO to properly remediate the damage.

SERVPRO is Here to Help When You Experience Mold Damage in Your Store

Your Boynton bookstore thrives on the avid readers of the region and offers them a haven for their habits. As you likely already know, moisture and dampness are two conditions which can threaten the integrity and quality of a book, but that is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg regarding the overall damage that it could present to the stock and structure of the store you own.

Since humidity and higher temperatures are commonplace in the area, often the conditions are already met for mold growth in commercial and residential structures. Microscopic mold spores exist naturally in the environment both inside and outside of buildings, posing a constant possibility of mold damage to your Boynton bookstore if the humid and damp conditions do not get appropriately managed. While SERVPRO IICRC certified mold remediation specialists can help you through any of the symptoms and effects of mold in your business, acting quickly can help to alleviate some other concerns that naturally follow along with a damaging situation like this.

The primary component of your bookstore is the hardcover and paperback editions of countless authors’ creations. While this might be what the customer base of your store also sees when they walk in, mold sees a feeding ground and organic material around every corner to spread the colonies, grow and thrive. When even a hint of the mold is present in your business, shelves of wares and the entirety of the stockroom are now a food source for the fungal colony.

With the known potential health effects that have gotten attributed to exposure to mold, your business cannot remain open to the customers you serve through the remediation process. This fact leaves you trusting in the efficiency of SERVPRO mold remediation over attempting to resolve this issue on your own, as conventional cleaning methods are virtually ineffective against the entire hyphae. DIY approaches only deal with the surface fungus, but the underlying issue remains and resurfaces a short time later.

Having a bookstore relies heavily on the traffic that you have coming in every day. While you might not ever get fully prepared for mold damage, SERVPRO of Boynton Beach can help you remediate the damage and get your business back open to the loyal customers you have. Give us a call anytime you need us at (561) 413-9855.

How Quickly Your Boynton Beach Home Can Experience Flood Damage

4/8/2018 (Permalink)

Flooding in any area can be devastating to the homeowner. Contact SERVPRO right away should your home face a flooding scenario.

Team SERVPRO Helps Dry Out Your Property and Seals Up Cracks Which Can Help Prevent Future Flooding


Owning a home in Boynton Beach has always come with the expectancy for unfavorable weather at times. While the better part of the year gets spent in warmth and mild conditions, these fair circumstances can change at the drop of the hat with severe weather systems pouring in from the coast. While you might do your best to prepare your home structurally for the potential wind, water and physical damage from external sources that it could face amid a strong storm, sometimes these measures fall short of completely preventing the issues.  
 
A good example of this would be flood damage to your Boynton Beach residence. While you work hard to make sure that your house is structurally able to handle the demanding nature of hurricane seasons, you cannot always tell when your foundation walls begin to fail and degrade. Even on a small scale, a good amount of water can pass through insignificant cracks and vulnerable points, broadening these penetration zones to allow high volumes of water in the ground and on the surface to pass through this line of defense.  
 
Within a short amount of time, you are dealing with a substantial emergency situation in the lower levels of your home. Whether this is a finished and livable area of your house or not, the pooling water stands to threaten the materials that are responsible for structural integrity of your home and can irreparably damage contents of the area including appliances and your stored possessions. This reality is why contacting SERVPRO at the onset of this disaster can help you to limit the damage that you end up facing.  
 
Our SERVPRO technicians work quickly to ensure that you experience as little of the potential damage as possible by immediately searching for the source of the flooding and repairing this area with hydraulic cement. Extraction using truck mounted pumps and wet-vacs prepares the area quickly for a thorough drying procedure. Drying and dehumidification limit the possibility of an added disaster such as mold growth.  
 
Flooding is rarely an expected occurrence, even for those that are familiar with the severe weather systems that they face. You can always trust SERVPRO of Boynton Beach to help you clean up the mess and restore the damage whenever you need us. You can reach our emergency response team 24/7 at (561) 413-9754.

Professional Mold Remediation For Your Boynton Beach Home

3/27/2018 (Permalink)

Mold damage in your Boynton Beach home might not always be clear and easy to see.

Professional Mold Remediation

A humid atmosphere is something that every Boynton Beach homeowner has to contend with on an almost daily basis. The unfortunate side to this natural state, apart from the uncomfortableness that often results from it, is the potential threats that it could cause your house. While there is something to be said regarding humid conditions and their effects on wood structures over time, there is also the lingering possibility of mold growth in excessively damp or wet areas of your house.

Mold damage in your Boynton Beach home might not always be clear and easy to see. Sometimes you have to identify its presence by signals like a musty scent in some areas of your house rather than seeing physical mold growing on surfaces. For some time, spores grow in colonies beneath the organic surfaces they seat into, leaving you none the wiser about their presence until you catch the familiar musty scent or the organisms spread out and grow large enough to push out onto the surface where you can see.

You indeed would not be alone in thinking that the discovery of mold in your home is something that you can contend with on your own instead of contacting professional services like our SERVPRO team. In fact, there are many resources on the internet to suggest DIY methods of mold removal, but for the most part, these methods of removal are vastly ineffective. The reason is, most people do not have the appropriate tools or expertise to reach the whole of the organism (the entire hyphae) and therefore, do not remove the mold. All that has gotten accomplished is the destruction of surface mold and likely the spread of spores to new areas of your home.

Our SERVPRO IICRC certified remediation specialists have the tools and expertise to get the job done correctly. From sectioning off the affected area and shutting off air circulation to prevent the spread of mold to new areas of your house, our team gets to work quickly on removing the colonies using our equipment that can deeply penetrate organic surfaces and remove the entire hyphae.

When you discover mold inside of your home, it is something that should get dealt with promptly. Call our experienced SERVPRO of Boynton Beach mold remediation specialists. We can be reached anytime at (561) 413-9754.

Water Damage Specialists

We put up warning signs and make sure there are no hazards in the work area. No work at the site begins until the area gets deemed safe for workers and occupants.

If the source of the water is clean, we follow different procedures than if the water has a high contamination level. If the moisture came about as a result of a pipe break in your bathroom, then most likely the water is clean. In many situations, clean water or category 1 water issues get remediated without discarding building materials or contents.

Many times the moisture gets dried out back to normal conditions, and nothing gets removed and replaced. Our restoration crew starts the process by moving all furniture out of the way so that nothing inside the home receives secondary damage. Then any furniture in the area gets put up on foam blocks so that air flows underneath it.

Next, the extraction process begins. Our experts extract any water that is inside the carpet, on hard surface floors, or inside upholstery. We work hard on extracting water from your furniture so that no stains occur.

Fire Damage from Cigarettes in Your Boynton Beach Home

3/13/2018 (Permalink)

Smoking is one of the leading causes of house fires, it is important to properly dispose of cigarettes after use.

Call SERVPRO As Soon As the Flames Are Out to Minimize Further Damage

While people in Boynton Beach commonly focus on the adverse health effects of cigarettes, it is important to remember that smoking indoors can lead to a fire. Smoking is a leading cause of house fires, especially when cigarettes or other smoking materials are improperly disposed of. A cigarette that is lit and tossed into your trash can create a fire in only seconds and engulf your entire property in flames. E-cigarettes are also a safety hazard, as they can malfunction and explode.

If you are a smoker, it is always safest to smoke outside of your Boynton Beach home and then properly dispose of your cigarettes. If an accident happens, and fire and fire damage have occurred in your home from cigarettes, you need help restoring it. Our technicians at SERVPRO can help you clean up the damage and get your life back on track.

After fire damage, the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours of recovery is crucial. Our effective emergency response stabilizes your structure to ensure we can recover as much property as possible. The acidic smoke and soot damage which is produced when fires are extinguished speeds up the corrosion and deterioration of vital assets and building components. To make matters worse, fires are usually put out with dry chemicals or water. The smoke odor left behind is toxic and has to be neutralized and deodorized.

SERVPRO’s fire damage restoration process includes mitigating the damage, doing the cleanup of smoke damage, and restoration of water damage as well. We do these as fast as possible after the fire happened. Besides the visible structural damage, we have to evaluate contents in your home based on different factors. These include loss of use, replacement versus restoration, the effect of heat and smoke, loss of value, sentimental value, and decreased life expectancy.

Our full restoration services can include emergency board-up, demolition, film application for soot removal, mitigating damage from smoke with thermal deodorization, and total reconstruction. When the last step requires massive rebuilding, we work with licensed professional contractors to help us.

Removing Commercial Mold Damage in Boynton Beach

2/28/2018 (Permalink)

Your sandwich shop or any other type of business needs a clean, mold free environment to operate in. Contact SERVPRO for remediation right away.

SERVPRO Technicians Customize the Remediation Plan Per Your Business Type and Extent of the Mold Infestation

Every Boynton Beach business has its requirements for clean-up and restoration after discovering a mold infestation. For example, a sandwich shop requires more careful cleaning to avoid contaminating food products and storage units like refrigerators and freezers as opposed to an operation like an auto repair shop that has square footage and requires more demolition and replacement of building material.
 
Boynton Beach commercial mold damage requires a professional restoration service to ensure each business is returned, as closely as possible, to its pre-mold state. As a locally owned business ourselves, SERVPRO understands how important it is to stay open every day for customers. The loss of one day’s receipts can force a business owner to put off paying a supplier to make that week’s payroll.
 
In the sandwich shop, we start with an inspection. Our technicians look for any leaks that generated enough moisture to cause the mold to expand and grow. We clean up any water to stop further growth and then stop the leak if the repair is a minor fix. Then, we use an anti-fungal spray to kill surface mold to prevent a recurrence.
 
If we find the interior of a storage unit is mold free, we seal it with the uncontaminated food inside and then wipe down the exterior of the refrigerator or freezer. The idea is to prevent handling the food if possible to preserve it and avoid accidental contamination of the product or uncontaminated areas of the shop.
 
With the larger space in a garage, SERVPRO technicians can seal off the contaminated section of the business with plastic sheeting to isolate it and prevent accidental contamination. Once we complete isolation, our team can quickly demolish and remove the infested building material for disposal according to Florida and EPA regulations.
 
In both types of businesses, we test the air for mold content after we finish removal and remediation. If the levels are still too high, we use the content meter to find the highest concentration of mold. Our teams spray the area and wipe down every nearby surface. If the air content is still high, we check behind the walls and above the ceilings to see what may be hiding.
 
Every business has its concerns when it comes to restoring it after a disaster. SERVPRO of Boynton Beach has served our fellow business owners for over fifty years and is proud to continue the service we started back in 1967. If you suspect a mold problem and need our help, call us today at (561) 413-9754.

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.

Taking Care Of Mold Damage To Your Boynton Beach Home

2/5/2018 (Permalink)

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.

In some cases of widespread damage to structural components, sanding equipment gets used to remove thin layers of affected material.

Tips for Minimizing Flood Damage to Your Boynton Beach Property

1/5/2018 (Permalink)

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. The flood waters can compromise not only the structural integrity of your home but also create quite a dangerous environment. If you are not proactive and take steps to minimize the damage, floodwater can leave you in shambles.

The first thing to do after flood damage to your Boynton Beach property is to call in the professionals. Restoring the damage caused by the flood water is a job for experienced, trained and well-equipped professionals. SERVPRO has a team of technicians that you can rely on during your time of need. Although we help restore damage to your property, there are a few things that you can do to make things a bit easy for us as well.

Flooding due to a natural cause is often predictable. It might be raining heavily, or there might be a flood warning in your area. If you are in such a situation, preparing your home can save a lot of time and money. SERVPRO professionals can also get the job done better if your home is prepared in the right way.

Move most of the light-weight electronic equipment such as TVs, CD payers, and computers to higher grounds. If you have a multi-storied house, move all these material upstairs. Also, if you can, remove all the area rugs and curtains and similar items and store them upstairs. If you can not remove the curtains, hang them on the curtain rod so that they can be protected from the flood water. More heavy electrical equipment such as fridges can be moved on bricks or blocks.

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.

Once the SERVPRO professionals reach you, they take care of the rest. We make sure that your home is restored to its former glory in no time.

Why do you need professional help to get rid of mold damage to your Boynton Beach property?

12/14/2017 (Permalink)

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

12/8/2017 (Permalink)

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)

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.

A top concern for business owners after such an event is how to salvage as much equipment as possible.

Water Removal

Deodorization Services Can Solve Fire Damage Problems In Boynton Beach

11/8/2017 (Permalink)

Fire and Smoke Odors in Your Boynton Beach Home? Call SERVPRO for Remediation

Fire & Smoke in a Boynton Beach Property Can Result in Odors Needing Remediation

Smoke odors are left behind after a fire damage incident, and it is a challenge to get rid of them. As a homeowner, you may not know the different methods of doing away with such smell. When in Boynton Beach, working with technicians who understand the manner in which odor molecules move into surfaces comes in handy.
 
Odors are perceived differently by different people. Though it is not usually the case with the gases resulting from fire damage in Boynton Beach, what you regard as a pleasant smell is unpleasant to another person. Since an instrument cannot detect the intensity of an odor, our noses perform that role. To deal with the unwanted odors, the services of deodorization experts from a company like SERVPRO should be considered.
 
Whether the odors at hand are imaginary or real, the technicians have to solve the puzzle. Real smells are those that come from an existing substance, while the psychological or imaginary ones are the smells that people think exist as a result of the present circumstances. There is a possibility that not everyone might be in a position to feel the imaginary odors. All the same, the two should be expected after fire disasters.
 
With that in mind, deodorization experts from service providers like SERVPRO must work towards solving both the real and imaginary odors. While neutralizing prime odors is an art that restorers have mastered over the years, the most significant challenge comes up when they have to deodorize imaginary odors. That is where the experience part plays a pivotal role to ensure the customer is satisfied.
 
Even after deodorization, it is important to note that weather changes can make the odors to reappear under certain circumstances. Once there is an increase in temperature and humidity, it is easy to detect the smells. When humidity increases, smells dissolve quickly and move to the nose. On the other hand, increased temperatures improve the movement and ease of penetration into surfaces. To solve that, restorers do additional deodorization.
 
Services offered by SERVPRO of Boynton Beach are specifically meant to help you. Give us a call at (561) 413-9754 to discover the many available options.

Choosing Materials That Are Less Prone to Water Damage For Boynton Beach Homes

10/23/2017 (Permalink)

Having a water damage restoration company at your Boynton Beach home is a necessity.

Selecting Materials That Are Less Prone To Water Damage

Our homes serve as a sanctuary after a long day at work. The quandary is that some materials used in house construction for Boynton Beach homes are more susceptible to water, flooding, moisture, and mold than others. As such, it is important to select materials that are more resistant to water for a few days without significant damage.

Nevertheless, having a water damage restoration company at your Boynton Beach home is a necessity. After many years of operation in the area, SERVPRO has dealt with many forms of water damage and can handle most emergencies swiftly and efficiently. We have a team of highly trained technicians, who are certified by the IICRC to ensure a smooth and effective restoration process.

When choosing materials, consider their compatibility with other types of materials and how the whole systems or components drain and dry. While some materials are resistant to water damage, they may actually prevent drying. The ability of the whole component to dry combined with resistance to moisture is a significant consideration.

When replacing water-damaged floorings, in particular, SERVPRO technicians look for moisture-resistant materials. Concrete materials like bituminous or latex, pre-cast concrete, or concrete tile can be polished, colored, and sealed. Moisture resistant wall materials include brick, cement board, cast stone with waterproof mortar, steel with waterproof applications, and ceramic wall tile.

Corrosion-resistant metal doors can also go a long way towards preventing water damage. Fiberglass door laminates provide a strong chemical and corrosion resistance to wear and tear. The fiberglass contains a gel coat on the door surface for a good seal. This coating layer is the main defense against water attack.

Lap siding usually allows drying. To minimize water damage behind the brick, it is crucial to install the brick correctly and provide drainage. Reinforced poured concrete is stable and comes with fewer seam than concrete block, which may facilitate water damage.

If your home was constructed before 1990, chances are some of the construction materials are susceptible to water damage. In any case, if you're unfortunate enough to experience water damage to your home, you can rely on SERVPRO of Boynton Beach to restore your property to its original state. Call us today at (561) 413-9754.

Handling Hurricane Irma Damage To Your Boynton Beach Home

10/23/2017 (Permalink)

Hurricane Irma Destruction in Boynton Beach Is Mitigated with the Help of SERVPRO

SERVPRO Removes Storm Water and Dries Out Structures to Mitigate Damages

Even the most prepared and seasonal storm-experienced Boynton Beach homeowner may be taken by surprise when the devastation of a hurricane affects his or her house. The path of a storm can also change unexpectedly, causing more damage than initially anticipated. Having a reliable hurricane restoration company in mind to handle the outcome is the smartest plan.
 
Water damage comes from many different angles when a hurricane is involved. A Boynton Beach home that appears to have little to no hurricane damage on a casual inspection may still exhibit significant interior water incursion. The humidity of our area also threatens to create its own moisture-related damage when several days pass without power, and the climate control system, especially air conditioning and dehumidifiers, do not operate for some time. An inspection post-storm by our water damage experts isolates issues that need attention.
 
The force of the winds may push water through window openings, soaking the framing and sills, causing the materials to warp. SERVPRO technicians are trained to take accurate moisture measurements and help determine drying goals for this hidden hazard. Once the wood framing dries, our team takes steps to ensure the windows are plumb and close tightly or any future rainstorms can exacerbate the problem.
 
Cinder block construction may hide water in interior cells, and dampness can persist between walls. Technologically advanced methods allow us to scan for this hidden water and use strategies learned in IICRC approved courses to remove it. Suctioning of carefully positioned holes, and removal of sections of drywall may all come into play to release moisture as SERVPRO works to remove the water. Evacuating the standing water and completing drying with air movers and dehumidifiers is essential to prevent secondary water damage like mold infestations.
 
Checking for subtle damage on the roof or the gutter and downspout system is also crucial after your home survives a hurricane. Properly positioned gutters and drains move water off and away from your foundation. Bent, loose, and clogged gutters and downspouts fail to funnel water off appropriately, causing issues later. Shingles and flashings may have allowed water to enter during the high winds, so an evaluation is to ensure all water damage is remediated.
 
Call (561) 413-9754 to schedule an appointment with SERVPRO of Boynton Beach if you have any concerns about recent hurricane damage. Set your mind fully at ease with a comprehensive damage assessment.

SERVPRO has mold remediation services available, performed by qualified professionals, that take the guesswork out of the entire situation.

Have You Got The Right Water Damage Insurance For Your Boynton Beach Laundromat?

9/27/2017 (Permalink)

As far as water damage risks go, laundromats are an obvious candidate for damage.

Water Damage Insurance

As far as water damage risks go, laundromats are an obvious candidate for damage. So many washers in one place mean a lot of potential flood risks right on site. It only takes one faulty machine or a dodgy bit of plumbing to cause a mini flood and leave your Boynton Beach laundry business high and dry.

SERVPRO recommends all Boynton Beach laundromat owners to check their insurance policy is up to date and provides adequate coverage in the event of water damage. It is quite common for a business to close its doors during cleaning. Shut doors are bad news for business owners, as a closed company cannot invite in customers or turn a profit. You need to know your insurance has you covered.

Checking the extent of your insurance coverage is important. Some laundromat policies only cover the cost of replacing washer/dryers, but the cost of water damage is often much higher than the price of the equipment alone. You need to consider floors, floor coverings, walls, any paperwork that gets ruined, and of course lost earnings. Make sure your insurance is adequate for all those costs.

Some laundromats offer a staffed folding or drying service, too. In cases where there is staff on the premises, the business owner must include worker’s comp in their insurance. Also, in cases where customers leave their clothes in your care, you must make sure you have adequate coverage for if water damage affects their clothing and they claim against you.

Check your lease carefully. Insurance requirements and details of who is responsible in the event of a leak are often written into your lease. You should always have an attorney review your lease since legal terminology can be difficult to interpret.

SERVPRO equips our IIRC-certified technicians with pumps and extraction tools to quickly remove water from your premises, and air movers and dehumidifiers to dry it out. We also take care of water deodorization after cleanup. Our staff can also liaise with your insurance providers and help you provide accurate paperwork for them.

We recommend all businesses try our Emergency Ready Plan – the app makes it easy to plan for disaster and makes getting help quicker and easier. For help with water problems in Boynton Beach and the surrounding areas, call SERVPRO of Boynton beach at (561) 413-9754 today.

Hurricane Season Means Flood Damage Season in Boynton Beach

9/22/2017 (Permalink)

Our SERVPRO technicians have the equipment and expertise to get rid of flood damage in your home.

Boynton Beach Homes Can Suffer Flood Damage Due to Hurricanes

Flooding can happen even without a full-fledged hurricane that forces strong winds and rain upon Boynton Beach. Tropical storms can make homes suffer substantial damage and also cause havoc for the surrounding landscaping. The damage may seem insurmountable, but SERVPRO can help you and your family by professionally restoring your home.

One of the locations most-often hit by storms in Florida is Boynton Beach, and this elevates the risk of flood damage. With heavier-than-normal rainfall, runoff can head straight for your home. Everything from silt to garbage to still-living organisms can end up in your home. These organisms include microscopic pathogens that can cause illness in humans or damage at the molecular level inside your home if left undisturbed.

While the visible deposits can cause substantial stress and concern, elimination of the invisible ones from your home's interior is needed more. Also, the damage to structures continues to worsen the longer they remain saturated with water. We can save furniture when mitigation begins soon after the flood waters become low enough.

For a flood that invades your home, our IICRC-backed training in Applied Structural Drying (ASD), Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT), and Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning (UFT) fits the needs of your home perfectly. Flooded homes require a number of different restorative methods performed simultaneously. Working as a team remains one of SERVPRO's strong points.

Removing all water and moisture from your home takes time, but we have the machinery to get the work done quickly, so damage to your home does not become excessive. Pumping the water out and ensuring humidity readings return to normal levels protects your home's interior from immediate structural changes and future problems.

Microbial infestation remains a part of almost any flood. When these microorganisms are in a moist environment, they can easily thrive. When desiccated, they become immobile and hibernate, ready to go back into action in the presence of more conducive environments, should they ever arise. We use antimicrobial agents to rid your home of these microbes, making it safe again.

Upholstered furniture can get beaten down with super-high humidity inside your home, even if they are in non-flooded parts of your home. Revitalizing these items takes skill and attention to detail to gain the best results.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

SERVPRO of Boynton Beach can help your home and belongings bounce back after flood damage threatens to ruin everything. Call us at (561) 413-9754 so we can begin helping you get everything back “Like it never even happened.”

Dealing with the aftermath of a fire can be overwhelming. Contact SERVPRO and we'll be there for you during the entire process.

Our Fire Damage Restoration Team Helps Your Recover After a Fire

Homeowners new to the devastation of a fire in their dwelling often do not know where to start after the fire department permits them to return and begin restoration.

When fire damages your Boynton Beach residence, our team assesses safety at the site and secures the premises with boards and tarps if necessary. We inspect all areas of your home to gain information on the problems caused by the fire. Then we rank the challenges you face and with which we assist in conquering.
 
Chief among them may be significant water related issues that take precedence because of the risk of collateral damage if unabated. Firefighters commonly use water and chemicals to extinguish flames. Standing water and moisture removal must complete before moving on to techniques to repair and restore areas charred and coated with smoke and soot. SERVPRO fire damage teams are certified water damage specialists as well, offering you a streamlined recovery experience.
 
Our technicians move from water damage mitigation to cleaning smoke and soot from all accessible surfaces. The residues from smoke and soot are highly corrosive, damaging, etching, and discoloring all type of materials -- plastic, wood, glass, china, laminate, organic and synthetic fibers, paint, and more. SERVPRO crew members match the consistency of the residue with effective cleaning products, tools, and methods. Dry sponging, dusting, vacuuming, wet wiping, scrubbing with abrasives, soaking, laundering, drycleaning, and ultrasonic techniques work if a trained smoke/soot removal expert assesses the need and uses the proper procedure.
 
SERVPRO teams sanitize and employ efficient deodorization approaches as a final cleaning step. Our workers are educated thoroughly on making certain the products used are meant for the hazards to be avoided. Deodorization methods eventually work, from a good scrub to sophisticated thermal fogging and hydroxyl machines that change the chemical composition of odoriferous particles. We find a way to neutralize fire-based stenches permanently.
 
Finally, our team starts restoring and repairing structures and contents of your home damaged by the fire. SERVPRO makes it a priority to work closely with insurers, building a file of evidence that backs your claims. We pledge to help you with this last duty because we understand how stressful and expensive restoration can be and we want to limit both your worries and your out of pocket expenses.
 
Fire damage restoration is much more manageable when SERVPRO of Boynton Beach is on your team. Make the call to (561) 413-9754 as soon as authorities allow restoration inspections and let us help you make sense of a difficult situation.

Mold Damage Remediation in Boynton Beach

8/27/2017 (Permalink)

Whether mold is visible or it remains hidden but gives off a foul odor, SERVPRO technicians will quickly investigate and remediate the problem.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate and Reconstruct Your Mold Damaged Property

Particularly in the South, many people falsely think that mold infestations are a fault of their housekeeping. Because of that, many try to hide the visual effects by painting over signs of mold and use air fresheners to cover the distinctive odor.
 
Mold damage to Boynton Beach homes and elsewhere in Florida happens only when mold spores find themselves with enough moisture to expand, and a sufficient food source to grow and spread throughout a home. Without these two factors in place, mold spores are inert and harmless. When they are no longer harmless, SERVPRO is ready to rebuild and restore a home to its pre-infestation condition.
 
After removing the infestation, our construction technicians get to work. The first step is to perform an additional inspection to make sure we know the location of every compromised column, support beam, and wall frame. For load bearing walls and columns, we bring in temporary jacks and lifts to maintain structural integrity.
 
After removing the compromised wood, we replace each piece with treated timber and boards that are more resistant to mold. Each piece we use meets both state environmental and EPA requirements. Since our office is a licensed contractor, we accomplish this in-house and can pass any savings to our customers. With everything in place, hanging new drywall for the entire house takes 2 or 3 days.
 
Now that we have a secure structure, technicians move to the roof. Mold grows quickly into plywood and across every type of roofing tile. Our work crews can strip and remove most damaged roofs in a single day. They replace new roofing panels and begin laying new tiles over another day or two. Depending on the size of the roof and the number of personnel we use, completion of a new roof takes another 3-5 days.
 
With a new roof overhead, we turn to the floor. Our technicians are highly trained and experienced when it comes to installing new wood floors. If the customer requests that we stain or paint the floor, we perform that task as well. If the requirement is to replace a carpet, we have personnel that specializes in stretching and installing new carpets across a mold-free concrete slab or that newly installed wood.
 
Regardless if your mold problem is in a new home that suffered a major plumbing issue or in an older home that may have been unoccupied for some time, SERVPRO of Boynton Beach is here to help. Our services extend from cleaning to removal to a complete rebuild if that is what it takes. Call today at (561) 413-9754 to get started.

Repairing Water Damage From the Gutter System in Boynton Beach Houses

8/10/2017 (Permalink)

Gutters play a major role in house construction.

Repairing Water Damage

Gutters play a major role in house construction. They help to guide water away from the roof and off the building during rainfalls. However, debris such as branches and leaves can accumulate and block the gutters, leading to another dam. When the water fills up this “dam,” it naturally progresses to drip over the edges and runs down the sides of the house. You can notice the effect of this water through the dirty water marks that form afterward.

If your house sustains water damage as a result of an ineffective gutter system, SERVPRO can help restore it. Our specialists are trained to deal with all sorts of water damage situations in Boynton Beach. Additionally, we have access to efficient water removal equipment, cleanup methods, and cleaning products to ensure a smooth restoration process.

If necessary, we may use a pump to remove standing water from the gutter system. Accessing HVAC systems that might have sustained water damage might be slightly difficult. On the other hand, it's easier to clean and decontaminate sheet metal ducting as compared to flex duct and coated fiberboard. The type of material on the inside determines the restoration process for HVAC systems.

When it comes to cleaning blocks and external walls, we need to find the most suitable solution for the material. Cinder block tends to collect a certain amount of moisture or water in the open cells over time, which can cause considerable water damage. Our technicians can examine and determine whether there is paint on the surface, and if so, whether it is gloss or not. Gloss paint serves as a vapor barrier, thus limiting the effects of moisture on the wall.

If the block wall comes with insulation (e.g. fiberglass, foam, vermiculite, or cellulosic), we may have to adjust our drying methods. Drying insulation requires plenty of dry air, which is hard to get in wall cavities due to poor air circulation. Slower drying can compromise the quality of some insulation materials.

While rains are celebrated in most cases, they can be damaging sometimes. If you notice distinct water marks along your walls, consult SERVPRO of Boynton Beach immediately to repair the water damage. We are available 24/7 at (561) 413-9754.

Causes For HVAC Unit Leaks In Your Boynton Beach Boutique

7/28/2017 (Permalink)

When you are running a clothing boutique, proper maintenance of your HVAC system is important to keep your employees and customers safe.

HVAC Unit Leaks

When you are running a clothing boutique, proper maintenance of your HVAC system is important to keep your employees and customers safe. Leaks in your air conditioning system can be frustrating. They are not only messy but can cause significant damage to your business and your inventory. SERVPRO can help if you have such a disaster, and we work fast to help prevent more damage.

There are different issues which can cause your central AC system to leak and the need for water removal to your business in Boynton Beach. A clogged condensate drain pipe causes the drain pan to overflow. Water leakage from an HVAC system can cause drain lines to be clogged with rust, algae, dirt, and other debris.

Drain pipe fittings could be insecure if your AC system were not installed properly. They can loosen over time, causing the drain pipe to disconnect and letting the condensate drain onto the floor or through the ceiling.

Another problem is a dirty or malfunctioning condensate pump. Leakage from your system can flood your business, and with the continual presence of water, mildew and mold can grow inside the AC unit, making it clog.

Our SERVPRO technicians can help you remove the standing water in a case like this, dry the affected area out thoroughly with the use of commercial dehumidifiers and fans, and check for any hidden mold damage. We ensure the area is dry and clean again before we are finished.

Other potential causes for water leakage from your AC unit include low refrigerant, a clogged air filter, no p-trap and air vent in the drain like to stop a water backup, a condensate drain pan which is cracked, and condensate buildup in ductwork which is not insulated. Regular maintenance can help prevent these problems.

When a leak is unavoidable, you want to get in touch with us at SERVPRO of Boynton Beach right away. We are easy to reach when you dial (561) 413-9754 anytime, so do not hesitate so we can get your business back to pre-damage condition as quickly as possible.

There are many safety considerations to be aware of during the flood damage remediation process.

When Flood Damage Strikes Your Home, SERVPRO Responds with A Solution

Dishwashers can go wrong without notice, and people are often surprised by just how much water can come out of a relatively small appliance. A broken appliance quickly spreads water through the surrounding area and might cause damage to carpets, nearby walls, or any furniture that happens to be in the water’s path.

Flood damage from a broken dishwasher in your Boynton Beach home is a small incident that has the potential to cause a significant inconvenience. It is hard to carry on life as normal with a wet kitchen or utility room, especially if carpets or other furnishings are compromised. Luckily we are on hand to help – We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

There are many safety considerations to be aware of during the flood damage remediation process. You can rely on SERVPRO to be aware of safety at all times and carry out drying and remediation with the utmost care and attention.

For example, we take great care around any electrical appliances. Being mindful of electrical hazards is particularly important in the kitchen as there are so many appliances there, such as the toaster or hob. We handle all appliances with care. We also ensure light fittings are safe before attempting to switch them on.

We tie electrical cords out of the way and cover up tack strips to make sure there are no trip or puncture hazards. SERVPRO provides our teams with the highest quality personal protective equipment to ensure safety is paramount during any work on your home.

Quick Response To Water Damage in Boynton Beach Is A Must

Water Damage in a Boynton Beach Condo Gets Help from SERVPRO

Trust SERVPRO for Fast Response and Water Removal

Almost all homeowners delay some home repairs and routine maintenance. Waiting often causes no real harm and allows your budget a bit of flexibility. Damage caused by water incursion is an exception. Every day that passes without responding to water damage risks grave and costly secondary issues. SERVPRO is your trusted partner in attending to these problems immediately.
 
Dealing with water damage to your Boynton Beach retirement condo is rarely your preferred activity. Timely response to a roof leak or appliance mishap is a proper use of precious moments here at the Gateway of the Gulfstream, even when it cuts into your well-earned relaxation time. Failing to eliminate the leak or repair the malfunction just re-exposes your home to the devastation water inflicts. Our highly qualified team of water damage specialists gets you back to your leisure-time activities fast, after abating both the source and damage done by leaks or flooding.
 
Failing to restore water damage risks permanent structural damage and the ruin of fixtures and personal belongings. Modern building materials usually consist of pressed wood and drywall rather than hardwood and plaster. This type of construction absorbs water quickly, swelling and eventually disintegrating. The cellulose in the materials provides nourishment to microbial activity, including mold colonies activated by the moisture. SERVPRO offers quick and effective solutions to limit this damage.
 
Carpeting repeatedly allowed to absorb up water can stretch and buckle or show signs of delamination, where the fibers detach from the backing. Other fabrics like draperies and upholstery discolor and risk mold infestation when water infiltrates. Wood, laminate, and tile floors also suffer damage when water soaked.
 
SERVPRO realizes how important a speedy intervention is to stop the destruction of water damage. We arrive within hours of your first call with trained technicians and all the equipment on the truck necessary to extract water and complete drying. In many condo buildings, there is the threat of verticle migration of water which can negatively impact other units. Speed in terminating the source of the water intrusion and extraction are critical to mitigate water damage to the structure and contents.

Make the call quickly to SERVPRO of Boynton Beach to prevent on-going water damage. We are available 24/7 for an immediate response. (561) 413-9754
