When Tarpon Springs residents need a storm-tossed tree lifted out of their kitchen, and then the roof, walls, and appliances restored or replaced, they know to call us. What many area homeowners may not know is that they can call us when they want to upgrade their kitchen.

As kitchen renovators, SERVPRO of Tarpon work teams are the ideal choice for Tarpon Springs homeowners no matter what the situation. Our workers can expand a kitchen for a growing family, lay down new tile or linoleum, or replace and upgrade kitchen cabinets to prepare for selling a home.


We Have The Training

SERVPRO of Tarpon is an IICRC firm. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) creates the standards for the restoration industry and provides training and certification to restoration companies. IICRC Certified Firms have the right to display the IICRC Certified Logo.



Although our state is known for its retiree population, the local area is also home to many growing families. That young couple who worked two jobs to make their mortgage and prepare for a family, now have two kids and need a larger kitchen much more than the huge living room with a flat screen TV as big as one of the walls.



SERVPRO of Tarpon renovation teams can push out a common wall to remove a few feet from the living room which can almost double the available floor space in the kitchen. Depending on what the homeowner wants, we can match the existing flooring if the material is available, or pull out the outdated flooring and install the latest in design.



Before putting down a new floor, we can move around the location of the kitchen island and even some appliances. The only restrictions on our actions depend on the location of supporting wall beams, gas and water intakes, and the imagination of the homeowner.



When a homeowner decides it is time for a new residence, we can help with that too. New cabinets can be a cost-effective method of attracting buyers and even be the deciding factor for a potential new owner. Our work crews can pull down and install completely new cabinets, or strip and stain or paint existing cabinets to go with new door designs along with replacement handles and hinges.



It is always a good time to consider renovation. At SERVPRO of Tarpon, we want to help you change your home for the better. To schedule a visit and get started on your new kitchen, call us today at (727) 934-5555.

Mold Issues In Tarpon


Did you know that ignoring that leaking sink or failing to dry water-soaked materials may quickly lead to additional problems such as mold damage? When mold infests organic materials such as wood, they might cause decomposition.

Spot On A Wall

What appears like a simple black spot on the wall may end up developing into an extreme mold case. It means every homeowner should be observant and make the right decisions.

Getting out the water or high humidity from your property is the key to dealing with mold damage. We inspect your property, identify and correct the source of moisture. To stay safe from such dangers when we are performing the remediation process, our SERVPRO of Tarpon technicians observe some safety work practices. Since the remediation process may involve disturbing the mold, we have to put containment measures in place to prevent the spread of the spores to clean sections of the house.

SERVPRO of Tarpon specializes in mold cleanup and restoration, in fact, it’s a cornerstone of our business. Our crews are highly trained restoration professionals that use specialized equipment and techniques to properly remediate your mold problem quickly and safely.

Documenting the site's conditions is essential during mold damage remediation. If the cause of mold in the building is high humidity, we have to use a hygrometer to measure and record the amount of water vapor in the structure. The recorded figure helps us to monitor the progress of the remediation process, and if it is not up to speed, we might introduce other techniques to fasten the drying process.

The techniques we use to remove the mold depend on the degree of contamination. In some instances, we may physically remove the contaminated items from the site, some cases may make use to use HEPA filters to vacuum the excessive mold spores, and we can also damp-wipe surfaces using a detergent.

Protect your property and reduce flood damage with some simple tips. If you have water damage call SERVPRO of Tarpon today (727) 934-5555.

Check weather reports regularly

The National also provides warnings of hazardous weather. These warnings give you time to set up preventative measures and protect your property. Also, you can sign up to your local flood warning service. In case of impending floods, the service sends a tweet, email, or text to your smartphone.

Maintain your gutter system

Gutters direct rainwater from your roof to the storm drain. It is wise to maintain your gutters before the heavy rains to prevent flood damage in your home. Step one, clean the gutters. Step two, remove any leaves and twigs blocking the path of water. Step three, check the gutters for cracks and gaps.

Crawl space encapsulation with plastic sheeting

Crawl encapsulation is a flood preventative measure where a heavy duty durable liner or plastic sheeting is used to cover the floor and walls of your crawl space. The plastic sheeting is multi-layered and reinforced with polyester scrim. This liner acts as a vapor barrier between your crawl space and the soil.

To prevent flooding, installation of a sump pump system is a must. Sump pumps help to remove standing water in case of flooding. Another issue that crawl encapsulation tackles is humidity. To counter this, a vapor barrier expert can install a permanent dehumidifier in your home. Dehumidifiers help manage condensation and humidity in the crawl space.

SERVPRO of Tarpon flood damage experts have extensive training in mitigating water damage. Thanks to our quick response, we can save your home from secondary damage. Also, we can reduce your restoration costs.

If you own or manage commercial properties you know that water damage can be a significant issue. Hotels experience many of the same water damage issues that other commercial properties face. The added layer for the hotel owner or manager is they have to try and remain open and take care of guests. Low water pressure or flooded hallways are not going to lead to good reviews.

When You Need Help With Damage To Tarpon Commercial Property


SERVPRO of Tarpon teams are always on standby to respond Faster To Any Size Disaster, including hotels needing water removal services. For more massive disasters, we can always rely on our neighboring franchises to help with extra resources. The majority of the time, we can adequately handle the tasks involved in eliminating the water and restoring a holiday retreat to just that.

Water that becomes trapped inside walls needs to drain away to the exterior portion so we can remove it. Before using our Injectidry system, we drill small-sized drain holes along the base of the affected walls. Getting as much water out first helps make the drying process work that much faster.

Our Carpet Cleaning Technician (CCT) steadily works to remove water from areas that became drenched with the water from the line's break, and tests to ensure that underlying floor structures also become dry again. We strive to limit disruptions to guests, especially those not directly affected using the corridors.



Extracting water as quickly as possible so we can apply specialized and highly effective drying techniques reduces the chances that water can cause permanent damage to your hotel's structures. Warping and buckling, among other changes, in flooring and other visible structures are just as crucial as hidden ones, inside walls and floors, where warped beams might not show. These interior flaws can significantly affect the structural integrity and strength of your hotel, and we take every precaution to prevent this from occurring.


Flooding and water damage events on Tarpon commercial properties are often complex with numerous issues that require a knowledgeable and flexible response. Whether we’re dealing with a relatively small water cleanup scenario or a large scale event, we work quickly to assess each unique situation and isolate the damaged area. In many instances, normal operations can continue in a temporary space while we restore your facility.

Restoring Commercial Properties Presents Unique Challenges


Our professionals are trained to be mindful of legal and environmental concerns and strive to fully restore the damaged area while working within your budgetary constraints.

A yellow note pad is shown on a brown table with the words we can help If you are thinking about bathroom renovation call SERVPRO of Tarpon at (727) 934-5555 today.


Remodeling a bathroom can seem like a big decision and many homeowners simply wait too long to start a project. In some renovations, there may be no actual damage, but homeowners want to replace fixtures which are out of style. They may want to make other changes to improve the look and functionality of their bathroom or other parts of their home.

Why SERVPRO of Tarpon?

So why should you choose SERVPRO of Tarpon to perform the bathroom renovation in your Tarpon Springs home? The renovation is simply the final task that we perform after cleaning up the damage and debris after a disaster. Our goal after every restoration is to return a home to its condition before the damage happened.

Take tile as an example. With extensive damage after a flood or a plumbing leak, tile floors and showers in a bathroom often need replacement. The process to repair or replace tile is the same if the owner wants to put down new tile as part of a renovation with the first task being the removal of the old.

After removal, our specialists test the exposed flooring and walls for moisture content. If the areas test too high, personnel install a dehumidifier to draw moisture from the air and exposed wood, and an exhaust fan to draw damp air out of the bathroom, so the dehumidifier works more efficiently.

Once they complete drying the bathroom, SERVPRO of Tarpon specialists lay in the new floor and hang new drywall. They sand and prepare the surfaces for the adhesive used to apply new tile. Our personnel then lay each tile in place and carefully grout them for a waterproof surface.

If the homeowner wants to use tile sheets, specialists cut and apply each section for the most pleasing look. To ensure a smooth finish with no air pockets, they carefully use hand a tool pressure force out trapped air. If needed, they use an air mover to blow warm air over the surface, keeping the adhesive soft as until ready for it to harden.

When performing a bathroom renovation, work crews often discover previously unseen damage. For a company that can handle everything from installing new fixtures to performing unexpected demolition, call SERVPRO of Tarpon at (727) 934-5555 today. We are here for you.

When your Tarpon or East Lake property floods, you have to contend with the inconveniences of cleaning up and removing items from the structure.

Beware of the Dangers

There are dangers, because flooding can interfere with the structural integrity of your house causing injuries if certain sections collapse. Perhaps the more common risk is exposure to contaminants and the risk of electric shock if the water submerges electrical outlets.

Professional Restoration

With our professional restoration services, you can avoid these dangers because we anticipate them and bring the right protective gear.

Contaminants such as raw sewage and toxic chemicals are common during flood damage in East Lake. If the skin comes into contact with such contaminants, they might be absorbed into the body.

Our SERVPRO of Tarpon technicians use chemical resistant gloves when working in such environments. We also demolish parts of the structure where restoration is not possible or when trying to expose moisture trapped in enclosed spaces. Heavy-duty gloves are necessary when handling these tasks.

Flooded properties present various challenges that might affect the sight or respiratory functions of the person doing the restoration.

The contaminated water can splash and reach the eyes. Floodwaters might also emit awful smell depending on the level of contaminants present. Mold is likely to grow in flooded properties and needs to be treated immediately.

Safety and the SERVPRO Technician

Our SERVPRO technicians are equipped with safety glasses and splash goggles to protect their eyes. We also have respirators with different capabilities including HEPA filters and organic vapor filters.

It's not advisable to enter a flooded building because of the risk of electric shock.

Our SERVPRO of Tarpon technicians check whether power is turned off, then use electric circuit testers for confirmation. We also have GFCI, ground fault circuit interrupters, which protect electrical equipment and tools. In case there is no power in the property, or we deem it risky to use we also carry mobile generators and self-powered water extractors.

A flooded property presents many risks, which you can avoid by involving a professional. Call SERVPRO of Tarpon at (727) 934-5555 if your property floods. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Drying Out A Water Damaged Tarpon Home

1/28/2021 (Permalink)

Water is shown on a floor Call SERVPRO of Tarpon (727) 934-5555 and find out how we can help you with water damage.

Using varying water extraction techniques is necessary when we are restoring your water damaged structure. Before choosing an extraction method, we have to look at various factors.


We have to determine whether the water has sediments, is from a white, gray, or black source. It means we have to inspect your home to come up with working solutions.

What To Consider

Four primary factors determine the time your property takes to dry during water damage restoration. The first factor is temperature. Usually, drying takes place faster when the temperature of the room is between 70° to 90°. At such a temperature, the air can hold more moisture enabling the surrounding surfaces to lose moisture. When the temperature of the area is too low, our SERVPRO of Tarpon technicians use portable heaters to increase it to the required standards. Our team installs Dehumidifiers to absorb the water vapors from the air to reduce the chances of secondary damage taking place.

To reduce the quantity of water we have to remove from the structure using Dehumidifiers, we perform a physical extraction. We have to use pumps and portable or truck-mounted extractors to remove liquid water from your property. The process of eliminating water that is in a liquid state is a little bit quicker when compared to removing it when it is in a gaseous state. Never think it is a waste of time when you see us spending much time using submersible pumps. During the extraction process, we are careful not to drip water on dry areas.

Air movement is crucial when we are drying your property. Wet surfaces usually have humid air that slows down the rate of evaporation. To speed up the drying process, our SERVPRO of Tarpon technicians properly position air movers in the room. These devices blow dry air onto wet surfaces and force the damp air out. For even distribution of dry air across the surfaces, we change the position of the air movers.

You can trust SERVPRO of Tarpon with your commercial or residential cleaning and restoration needs after experiencing a water damage incident. Our highly experienced technicians respond immediately and use advanced equipment to make it “Like it never even happened.” Call (727) 934-5555 to learn more.
