Teamwork Abates Commercial Mold Damage in Trinity

9/20/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Teamwork Abates Commercial Mold Damage in Trinity Your business could experience signs of mold growth due to an air conditioner unit not operating during a post-storm electrical shutdown.

Mold Remediation After a Power Outage

Mold growth occurs as soon as 24 to 48 hours after water damage or high humidity settles into a commercial space. When weather, negligence, or accident causes a power outage, mold growth accelerates in a high-humidity area like Trinity. Our remediation team follows industry protocols to abate mold damage and help you meet local regulations pertaining to the presence of microbial growth.

Mold damage needs a sure and speedy resolution in your Trinity grocery store, as both employees and the public risk encountering the colonies of microbes. Despite the use of generators, some areas of your food market experience signs of mold growth as your air conditioning and dehumidifiers were not operating at optimum levels during post-storm electric shutdowns. Our mold remediation specialists not only have a proven approach to contain and remove evident mold, but they also work with you to correct the circumstances that encourage the microbial proliferation in the first place.

SERVPRO uses the directives of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to manage mold damage. Containment is key during the procedure, as you want to limit the spread of any mold within your store. We use high-efficiency negative pressure air scrubbers and physical barriers while our crews attack the mold growth, wearing personal protective gear. All mold and any porous material it infiltrates is removed and then discarded under local hazardous waste regulations. Affected areas receive treatment with effective antimicrobial products to prevent a mold resurgence. Your store remains open for business during the procedures unless the infestation is found throughout.

We continuously monitor humidity levels while completing the remediation tasks. Expect SERVPRO project managers to explain the effect ambient humidity levels over 60 percent have on mold spores. Spores are always present but begin to divide and grow when mixed with moisture on a surface or from sticky, humid air. Running AC and dehumidifiers should consistently reduce the air moisture levels to a range of 30 to 50 percent. This relatively dryer air usually does not contribute to mold growth. We position desiccant dehumidifiers to help your on-site HVAC system to normalize the humidity to the suggested levels. You may choose to upgrade your generators after a mold event to be certain humidity levels remain below 60 percent should another power outage occur.

SERVPRO of Tarpon has the technical resources to abate even commercial mold damage quickly and according to EPA protocols. Call us at (727) 934-5555 the moment you suspect a mold outbreak.

Sporting Goods Outlets Risk Loss from Commercial Water Damage in Trinity

9/15/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Sporting Goods Outlets Risk Loss from Commercial Water Damage in Trinity Water can cause stress but SERVPRO will be there to clean up the mess.

Is A Water Damage Incident Causing Your Trinity Business Stress?

Sporting goods come in many different material types. These materials can range from hard and flexible plastics, rubber, and foam to fabrics, leather, and metal pieces. Students on sports teams in the Trinity area need uniforms and protective gear that fit correctly so that the maximum protection is afforded to these young athletes while playing opponents and practicing for tournaments.

Sporting goods retailers in Trinity should be aware that commercial water damage affects not only inventory but also the indoor environment. Hurricane-related weather can spell big trouble for any inventory. Prolonged elevations in moisture levels can also increase the amount of energy expended by dehumidifiers and central air systems. Even when the majority of a hurricane misses an area, related-weather can form stronger storms that can douse stores horrendously.

The technicians at SERVPRO know how to quickly restore overall humidity levels to normal after removal of all excess water. Boarding up to protect stores and shops from hurricane-related weather works well at keeping water from entering, but can later prevent humidity from escaping after the storms have passed. Until the windows and doors reopen, water damage occurs quickly.

Secondary damage, including microbial growth, flourishes more easily in dark, enclosed environments saturated with moisture. However, returning quickly during the period immediately after a hurricane or hurricane-related storm might not happen according to plans made before the event. Because we hold certificates in Applied Structural Drying (ASD) and Commercial Drying (CDS) from the IICRC, we know which methods work the best in undoing the damage that water can cause. Additionally, our Odor Control (OCT) and Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT) technicians can make your retail location look and smell “Like it never even happened” inside and out, helping you reopen your doors, completely ready for business.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

The friendly professionals at SERVPRO of Tarpon can help your business regain its vitality and stay in business after earth-shattering events such as the latest hurricanes and related storms. No job is too large for our team as we always can rely on our national network to assist us whenever needed. Call us at (727) 934-5555 any hour, any day of the year, to start the process of reclaiming your property from water damage.

Keeping Commercial Fire Damage from Destroying Your Trinity Custom Sewing Shop

9/5/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Keeping Commercial Fire Damage from Destroying Your Trinity Custom Sewing Shop Let the professionals at SERVPRO assess the damage to the variety of surfaces and materials affected by a fire in your custom sewing shop.

SERVPRO technicians are specially trained to clean up fire damage

Fire destroys while it burns, rendering almost everything it touches a charred, useless mess. While preventing a fire in the first place is always better, being able to quickly recover after one can help keep your custom sewing shop from failing.

Trinity business owners know commercial fire damage can cause more than the destruction of their inventory. When businesses engage in custom-made work such as boat cushions, curtains, and other one-of-a-kind goods, fires can interfere with your normal business operations. Most customers waiting on their purchases prefer quick production, but often understand that calamities hinder the process.

The ability to restore normal operations quickly shows your dedication to your customers' needs, building trust and repeat business. SERVPRO knows that each company in our area is an important part of the local economy and we remain dedicated to helping minimize the length of time your business remains unproductive.

The different types of fabrics and materials used in the making of textile-based goods mean they burn differently. Some simply melt because of their high content of synthetics. While often used because of their waterproof qualities, the same qualities can make them one of the first to go when a fire occurs. Smoke can damage more hardy fabric types, but SERVPRO's ability to restore these by removing the microscopic soot particles means less inventory requires replacement.

Machines used for grommet placement, sewing heavy canvas, and other equipment can be cleaned and made free of soot. New work should wait until afterward to protect both machinery from abnormal wear and tear and fabric from becoming stained from soot deposits.

We train our employees according to international standards, resulting in technicians holding certificates in Fire and Smoke Restoration Technician (FSRT) and Commercial Drying Specialist (CDS). We clean up the fire damage, and then we ensure your business is dry, too. Both are required to get you back on your feet and fulfilling customers' orders.

Areas on walls and ceilings that have structural deficits from the fire can become like new through restoration. Carpeting, however, is often largely destroyed by the combination of heat, fire, smoke and soot, and water from firefighting. Other floor types may suffer less damage, but each fire is different from the next. Inspecting and assessing to see the extent of the damage reveals much information specific to that fire.

Always ready to help the local businesses recover from even the worst disasters, SERVPRO of Tarpon can quickly remediate and mitigate both vast and small disasters. Call us at (727) 934-5555 so we can help restore your business, so it is “Like it never even happened” again.

Commercial Mitigation Process Of A Hotel's Water Damage In Tarpon Springs Water can cause major damage to your hotel.

Mitigation Process

Hotels provide for virtually every one of a guest's needs, but the necessities of life include water – for drinking, bathing, cooking, and washing, for example. Each hotel room has its own water supply to satisfy guests' needs, complete with bathroom fixtures.

The hotels in Tarpon Springs can be a source of water damage when fixtures in the bathroom overflow onto the floor after being left unattended or one of the pipes breaks. In either of these disastrous events, gallons of water can inundate a room, spreading out and down, resulting in damaged walls, ceilings, floors, and furnishings.

Leaks on higher floors can cause widespread damage that affects other guests. The effect of this and similar problematic situations can seriously impede the ability of your staff to satisfy all guests' needs, including those booked in unaffected areas of your hotel. SERVPRO's technicians, certified by the IICRC in Applied Structural Drying (ASD) and Water Damage Restoration (WRT), are well-suited to handle the work required in such widespread disasters. Their past work involved large scale endeavors providing them with experience in working as a team in the same vicinity as the customers' employees and patrons.

The equipment that arrives in our Green Fleet alongside out technicians at each job gives us information on the severity and scope of the water involved. Knowing where the water traveled to allows us to start extracting all liquid. When we have finished with the extraction of water, we begin to remove moisture and humidity.

Removal of moisture with the use of smaller extraction devices, while eliminating humidity from the air utilizing commercial-grade dehumidifiers. Carpets, padding, underlay, as well as walls and ceilings, can be dried out sufficiently with the use of heaters and air blowers, with dehumidifiers readily suctioning off the evaporated water. When needed, heated units that raise the temperature to increase the rate that liquid water releases into the air.

Our local businesses can continue strengthening our community only as long as they are vital and vibrant, and capable of conducting normal business operations.

Your Answer To Flood Damage Throughout The Trinity Area

Storm Damage Your Answer To Flood Damage Throughout The Trinity Area If you find yourself face-to-face with rushing water, having a qualified restoration company available such as SERVPRO can truly save your home.

SERVPRO is The Answer to Your Flood Damage Problems


Appliances have the potential to cause major water issues throughout your home. If a particular area does not have machinery, the pipes themselves cause significant problems as well.

Correctly maintaining appliances used in your Trinity area home can save you from flood damage that often occurs. Many people forget that machines require maintenance over time, the hoses, connectors, and supply lines all take damage, even though they never move.

The more you use these appliances, the more chances they have to cause a flood. A small pipe running through your wall can burst and expose the inside of your walls to hundreds of gallons of water within minutes. Having someone like SERVPRO on your speed dial can provide you with the help you need to recover quickly and save your home.

Think about all of the appliances you have. Your dishwasher connects to feed lines that run through your walls and has drain lines that most likely lead underneath your sink. Your washing machine connects in pretty much the same way, depending on how you have your laundry room setup. Then you have your refrigerator, which, let's face it, most come with an ice maker and water dispenser these days.

When a malfunction occurs, you may or may not have time to react. If you find yourself face-to-face with rushing water, having a qualified restoration company available can truly save your home. SERVPRO provides you with a variety of services to locate, repair, remove, and restore problems found in your home in the most timely and efficient manner possible.

Soot Damage in Your Trinity Home from Fire

6/20/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Soot Damage in Your Trinity Home from Fire Smoke Detectors Provide Safety and Mitigate Fire Damage in Trinity

The Acidic Nature of Smoke and Soot Require Special Cleanup

After a fire, soot damage is very typical. Soot can be a black flaky or oily or powdery substance which forms from incomplete combustion. Fine carbonized compounds cling to surfaces in your home like ceilings and walls, plus your possessions. Soot can be difficult to remove, and sometimes it is not possible to restore the surface to its pre-fire condition.
 
There are two types of sediment you can find after fire damage to your Trinity home – oily and dry. A quick check you can do to discover the type of residue you have is just to run your finger over a soot-covered surface. It is oily residue if it smears. Try not to make a mess. Better yet, leave it to us to inspect and clean.
 
You need an experienced fire damage restoration team working with you to clean the soot from your home thoroughly. SERVPRO is standing by to help you as soon as the fire is out and everyone is safe. The longer you leave the smoky substance sitting in your home, the more damage it does.
 
Heat from the fire pushes the soot and can cover everything in its way. Smoke looks for a kind of equilibrium and travels until its energy is used and it goes to cooler temperatures. When tested, soot can always be found on the acidic side of the pH scale. Acidic materials are destructive to a majority of elements found in nature. Over time, they keep degrading materials by oxidation which leads to discoloration, etching, corrosion or pitting. Stains over metals can yellow and soften. These reactions are ongoing from soot residues until they are removed.
 
We can clean up oily residue with special degreasing agents, while we clean dry soot with cleaning sponges. Sometimes, soot will be oily in one room and dry in another. It all depends on the kinds of materials that were burned, so we check ahead of time before we begin remediation.
 
Many varying types of damage occur after a fire, including water damage from firefighting efforts, but soot damage continues to eat away at the surfaces it is covering if left untouched. SERVPRO of Tarpon knows how important it is to move fast in these situations, so give us a call as soon as possible at (727) 934-5555 so we can restore your home back to its preloss condition.
