SERVPRO Technicians Can Remove Flood Damage from Brandon Homes 24/7 

Flooding can bring with it much more than just massive amounts of water. The waste, pests, silt deposits, chemical runoff, and other concerns can affect your home's safety and air quality. Fortunately, there is a professional team that is ready to mitigate the damage. 

If your Brandon home has endured flood damage, SERVPRO techs can remove water, sanitize your home, and dry both the structure and your belongings. SERVPRO teams coordinate with property owners and insurance adjusters to assist in the claims filing process while providing restoration compliant with your insurance policy. 

Insulation Solutions for Your Home 

  • Spray foam insulation.Spray foam insulation is useful for reducing heating and cooling costs, and it is also highly resistant to water. Use spray foam in areas particularly vulnerable to leaks and flooding.
  • Create interior wall gaps.Adding a gap in the wall cavity limits moisture wicking up your insulation and reduces replacement costs.
  • Consider fiberglass batts.Fiberglass insulation is not only nonporous, but it is easily removable in the event of a flood. 

SERVPRO Saves Flood-Damaged Walls 

After extracting any immediately present floodwaters in your home, SERVPRO technicians can focus on mitigating further damage to structural materials from moisture. One method used for preserving wall cavities is the use of flood cuts made several inches above the highest point of moisture absorption. We remove baseboards and drywall below the cut so that technicians can remove insulation, as flood damage can compromise sanitary conditions in your home as well as affect your insulation's R-value. 

SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview is proud to serve the community with a cleanup that is Faster to Any Size Disaster. Call (813) 741-3473 to have an emergency response team at your home within hours.

My Brandon Store is Flooding, and I am Unable to Trade, what are My Options?

5/12/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Commercial Water Restoration Technicians in Brandon can Help you to Quickly Reopen

Commercial Water Emergencies in Brandon can occur at any time of the year. Sometimes, you may find yourself unable to trade until the situation is under control.

Can I get a business rate reduction as a result of flooding?

In some situations where water intrusion is beyond your control, you may reduce your business rates. However, the surest way to limit losses to revenue is to take a proactive approach to restoration by enlisting commercial water removal experts in Brandon. Using a professional service that has experience working on commercial projects can reduce losses as well as providing you with a precise time frame to plan your business activities. Our crew chiefs can inform you of necessary restoration, possible outcomes, and working closely with local insurance adjusters.

Where can I source water displacement pumps to move water out of my premises?

Local hire centers are available to rent displacement pumps temporarily. However, you should ask yourself whether you or your staff are qualified to set up, pump, and dispose of wastewater correctly. Different types of water damage requires different types of equipment. Water with solid waste requires a pump with unique characteristics. Self-priming trash pumps have the necessary lift, volume, and ducts to transport solid wastes. However, it may be illegal to dispose of solid wastes in a regular sewer point, meaning you also need a means of transport to take wastewater to a facility for disposal. SERVPRO has both the equipment and the expertise to remove water from your commercial property following local and state regulations.

What types of water removal equipment are available to SERVPRO technicians, and what are their uses?

  • High-pressure pumps provide significant power to transport water uphill and out of the property
  • Self-priming trash pumps are capable of passing water with solid waste up to 1.25 inches
  • Electric submersible pumps move from 100 to 18,000 gallons per hour
  • Weighted extraction tools for removing moisture from thick fabrics or textiles like carpets
  • Light wands which are agile enough to reach areas with space restrictions

How can I choose the right extraction tool for water displacement?

Pumping equipment is the most efficient in terms of a gallon per hour (GPH.) Next, extraction tools that are useful once pumping becomes inefficient- usually once standing water drops below two inches. Dehumidification equipment is the least efficient, and we usually reserve it for drying residual moisture or lowering the moisture content of building materials. There are other considerations when choosing your equipment, such as how far water needs transporting to reach your sewer points or storage tanks. A distance of more than twenty-five feet usually requires a high-pressure pump to displace water efficiently.

Does my business insurance cover mold growth?

It is essential to check your insurance policy to be sure of your coverage. Commercial properties usually cover flooding under a separate policy to business insurance. Equally, mold growth is usually only covered if the mold is the direct result of the water intrusion. Crucially, if mold occurs after the event, property managers must prove that appropriate mitigation efforts take place. Our water damage restoration (WRT) technicians can take steps to reduce the likelihood of mold growth. These include maintaining control over relative humidity throughout the service using thermal hygrometers. We can also take precautionary steps to prevent mold growth by applying anti-microbial treatments in the affected area. 

What are the necessary steps to take when there is water intrusion at commercial premises?

  • Contact your insurance provider to notify them of the situation
  • Reach out to professional restorers as soon as possible- our emergency call-lines are in operation twenty-four hours a day.
  • Use local companies to reduce call-out times- we promise to arrive within four hours of notification of loss.
  • Wait for crew chiefs to arrive who can communicate closely with both you and your adjuster

When is it safe to reopen my business after a commercial water emergency?

A business is safe to reopen once it returns to a sanitary state. Water can carry microbes into premises, which can cause health and safety concerns. Our team can not only remove the body of water from your property but can also clean, dismantle, and reassemble the affected area. We are using chemical agents that can kill any potential microbial growth, which may include bacteria, fungi, or viruses. Once the property is thoroughly decontaminated and dry, our crew chief can perform a walkthrough. The walkthroughs occur once the restoration is complete, and we can pass on any paperwork to your insurance provider to complete a stress-free claim.

If your business requires emergency water recovery, our commercial teams are available. Contact SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview at (813) 741-3473.

Contact the SERVPRO Emergency Response Team ASAP when water damages your Brandon home

Time is of the essence when dealing with water damage. Clean water can quickly become contaminated if left sitting too long, and secondary damage may occur. Our IICRC technicians use professional equipment and techniques to ensure the least amount of loss as possible.

What Can I Do To Avoid More Serious Damage?
SERVPRO Technicians Remove Excess Moisture Promptly to Prevent Secondary Damage
Water cleanup in Brandon requires a fast response. It may be too late for primary water damage such as warping of wood floors and ruined carpet backing. However, you may mitigate secondary damage such as wallpaper or ceiling tiles crumbling or dangerous mold growth if cleaned and dried quickly. It is particularly important in Florida because the relative humidity (RH) is already high, averaging about 74% outdoors, potentially allowing secondary damage to occur more quickly.

What Are Some Things to Consider When Drying My Home?

    •    The goal is to evaporate excess moisture from the contents of your home into the air.
    •    Do not over-cool the air in a warm, moist room, or you run the risk of reach the dew point, which may cause condensation to form, causing more problems.
    •    Increasing the airflow with industrial-strength air-movers removes the dense boundary layer near the surface helps dry the structure more quickly.
    •    Dehumidification also helps dry the impacted areas by removing excess moisture from the air and exhausting warm, dry air.

Florida is unique in the amount of moisture and humidity constantly present in our environment, so it is imperative to take extra care in addressing water damage right away. Since water can become trapped potentially causing severe long-term issues, having professional assistance by our knowledgeable technicians gives you that peace of mind after damage to your home.

Content Inspection And Cleaning In Brandon

4/27/2020 (Permalink)

Burnt house interior Content management and recovery is a delicate process for post-fire recovery of your home.

Content Inspection and Cleaning after Brandon House fires

Caring for the belongings of your Brandon home after a fire is no simple task. Careful consideration goes into the action taken with each item found in your home after a fire loss. With multiple approaches that we can take with your most treasured belongings, it can help to put your mind at ease to know the most common choices made to protect your possessions and make fire losses “Like it never even happened,” in a more personal way for our customers.

Before our SERVPRO professionals can address the fire damage to Brandon structures more directly, decisions and actions must get taken with the contents here in the residence. While many of the outer-lying contents might be able to get cleaned and restored on-site, it is still advisable to move some of these possessions to an area of the house that is not an active work zone for fire restoration and recovery. Those more heavily affected must get tagged for removal to our warehouse for more focused cleaning and recovery.

In-House Restoration
It is often the priority and focus of our technicians to restore and recover the damaged contents of your home on-site when possible. Not only does this make the entire restoration process a little more efficient, but it is not as costly and often stressful to the customer as the off-site recovery in our SERVPRO facility. With powerful cleaning products to use with agitative and abrasive cleaning methods, we can address threats like soot and odors often without the need for pack-out.

Off-Site Recovery
Heavily soiled items require focused attention that is impossible to provide in a damaged home. Our content management team can take these items to our nearby warehouse for cleaning, deodorization, and safe storage. With sophisticated tools at our disposal in our facilities like immersion ultrasonic tanks and ozone chambers for deodorization of an entire room worth of contents, we can reduce unnecessary loss through off-site cleaning.

Content management and recovery is a delicate process for post-fire recovery of your home. Give our SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview team a call to help however you need at (813) 741-3473.

How Do I Recover After Tropical Flooding Invades My Brandon Home?

4/19/2020 (Permalink)

flooding in home We are here for you 24/7, so if you need our help, call us at (813) 741-3473 today.

Have SERVPRO Storm Damage Specialists Return Your Brandon Condo to its Pre-Flood Condition

No type of flooding is pleasant, but as the result of a hurricane, it can also be accompanied by high winds. Combined, these two can tear apart and soak the interior of your home in a very short amount of time from the foundation to the roof.

How is Tropical Floodwater any different from other floodwaters?
Tropical flooding in your Brandon condo came from the outside. That means it contains soil and other contaminants picked up by the storm. The groundwater may also have a high concentration of saltwater, which greatly adds to the potential damages. These contaminants are not present with flooding from a broken pipe or failed appliance in your condo.

Quick removal of water is always important, but SERVPRO understands that this storm flooding leaves much of the contamination on the walls, floors, and other property inside the home. That means additional damage to include the risk of mold spreading through your home or rental property.

So how are you going to return my condo to its condition before the flooding?
Our first steps to restoring your condo are water removal and structural protection. Several team specialists begin working in the residence immediately after arriving on-site to draw out any standing water. This action reduces the level of flood damage and prevents damage to property not directly affected by the flood. Depending on the size of your condo, we can usually draw out the water completely in several days using specific tools:

    •    Commercial-grade pumps to remove floodwater about an inch or deeper in the condo
    •    Extraction wands to remove floodwater less than an inch. Our response teams also use these to draw water out of carpets and from between floorboards

As this happens, other team members work to secure the home against further damage. Structural protection includes the following:

    •    Boarding up damaged doors and windows to reduce the possibility of trespassing and vandalism
    •    Covering damage to the roof and eaves to reduce and prevent further damage from both storms and animal intrusions
    •    Isolating and sealing cracks in the foundation to prevent water from entering the residence
    •    Spraying or wiping down surfaces touched by the floodwater with an anti-bacterial agent that not only cleans them but also greatly reduces the health and mold threat

Does all of the Water Damage have to be Replaced?
No, many items can be dried and restored. Each of our teams has Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRTs) to take specialized actions to dry personal and structural property:

    •    They use fans and air movers together to draw out moisture from the interior of the condo so that drywall panels can be cleaned and left in place
    •    WRTs also use the same devices to dry wood surfaces on dining room sets and other furniture. The careful application helps eliminate water spots and prevents lacquer and other veneers from running or streaking
    •    For clothing, they use anti-bacterial detergents and commercial-grade washing machines in our inventory to clean and disinfect items soaked by the floodwater

Carpets, however, always require replacement. We cannot 100% guarantee that it is safe to use again, even after replacing the carpet pad and shampooing it with the strongest cleaner in our inventory.

What about the Condo wall framing and other support structure? Can it be saved?
Yes, we also have Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ADTs), who are trained to preserve the residence. They use devices from our equipment inventory to draw out water before it can rot or otherwise damage framing and more:

    •    Box fans to increase air circulation throughout the condo, sending damp air outside
    •    Air movers to direct warm air across surfaces to carefully dry them without causing splitting, cracking, or other damage
    •    Desiccants to draw moisture out of wall framing and other structural supports. Desiccants are particularly useful to keep moisture down to a safe level in laundry rooms and the sub-floor year-round.

Can you help me with my insurance company?
Yes, we can provide much of the information you need. SERVPRO has extensive experience with each major agency here in Florida, and we carefully follow their recommendations to help ensure you receive the most out of your policy. Our team leaders keep a detailed log on all of our actions and a list of what we restore or replace for their review. The CCIS Contents Claim Inventory System greatly assists our customers with their insurance claims.

At SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview, we understand the need to return every residence to a dry, clean, and safe condition. As a locally-owned operation, many of our customers are also our neighbors, and we try to treat each one like they just down the street. We are here for you 24/7, so if you need our help, call us at (813) 741-3473 today.

Can The Carpet In My Office in Brandon Be Salvaged?

SERVPRO Can Help You Assess The Damage and Make the Right Decision

Whenever your commercial Brandon office space needs water removal, our SERVPRO technicians are here to help.  We are on call 24/7 to respond swiftly to your emergency, and help us minimize your losses. Like you, we understand that every minute you remain closed represents a loss in revenue.

Why do I need to call a professional team to extract the water?  

Using a wet-dry vacuum and humidifiers will certainly help you evaporate water in your Brandon office, but it may not be enough.  As professionals in the industry at SERVPRO, we have at our fingertips several tools that help us measure moisture levels and take action to restore them back to normal. Failure to extract all water can leave you with a suitable environment for bacteria, such as mold, to reproduce. Tackling the problem in a timely manner helps prevent future complications.  

What are my options to save my carpet?

The situation and our observations will help determine what happens to your carpet.  In some instances, we can dry it in place, as long as it has not been wet for more than 72 hours. Some advantages of this technique include the following:

-Less disruption to the flow of your business

-Less damage to the carpet

-Furniture may be able to stay in place

Alternatively, our SERVPRO crew can have a frank conversation and recommend the full removal of the carpet, if the damage is too far gone.  When this happens, we work within local guidelines and ordinances to dispose of the carpet as recommended.

When our SERVPRO of Brandon/ North Riverview is at your side, we can discuss the benefits of each of the options available to you. Call us at (813) 741-3473 as soon as you discover the issue and let us go to work for you. Together, we can leave your office, "Like it never even happened."

Why We Are The Best Choice In Brandon After Water Damage Strikes

Trained and Well-Equipped: Why SERVPRO Is the Brandon Water Removal Expert

Why SERVPRO for Water Removal in your Brandon home 

Efficient pumping and extraction services are essential when spaces in your Brandon home become filled with water. Any level of water contamination exposes your home and your family to the potential of secondary damage. Appliances used to clean clothes or dishes can spew dirty water. Backups of toilets or drains and floods increase the danger with the risk of human pathogens. Clean water from a supply line break or a sink or tub overflow extracted fast might cause only minor issues but becomes tainted if left for a day or two. Regardless of its source, any water loss is a severe problem. Immediate action must be taken, why we respond 24/7.

Everyday Water Mishaps Can Take a Serious Turn

The average homeowner considers a bucket, mop, and wet/dry vacuum the arsenal for Brandon water removal. A swiftly dealt with spill of the dog’s water dish or dropped tumbler cleans up well with those tools, but other common household accidents send a few to hundreds of gallons of water across floors. Always seeking an outlet, water seeps into cracks and cavities even if the initial amount was manageable. Our ability to follow water migration paths and rid all spaces of water regardless of space constraints or other challenges is why we are an industry leader. 

What to Expect from Professional Water Removal

When we scope your water loss, we both investigate the specifics and initiate a plan that considers your unique circumstances. Depending on the location and depth of the water, we choose to begin with pumping or extracting. The fact that our inspectors can never be sure precisely which tool can be most efficient is why SERVPRO always stocks service vehicles with a range of water damage removal options. Water deeper than two inches, we pump out with submersible, gas-powered models. If the power is unavailable because of storm damage or electrical hazards, our truck-mounted extractors use onboard generators. If water collects in tight spaces, our portable extractors move with our technicians, capable of suctioning water out of confined areas and beyond the reach of our truck-mounted equipment.

Drying Is the Final Phase of Removal

Thorough extraction is vital, much more efficient than drying alone. But once the liquid water exits the building via our pumps and hoses, our technicians set up a drying perimeter to return moisture levels to normal. Our employees are drying experts, why SERVPRO pledges with confidence to make it “Like it never even happened.” Our crews balance air movement, temperature, and dehumidification to wind up each job to water restoration industry standards.

No water removal job you have for us is too challenging or too insignificant, why SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview is the team to call. Our number is (813) 741-3473. We are ready 24/7 to schedule an evaluation.

Removing Structural Water Damage in a Brandon Home

3/10/2020 (Permalink)

Hands holding home Your home is in good hands with SERVPRO.

You Can Rely on Our Team of Professionals to Repair Your Homes Structural Damage After Water Damage Occurs

Water damage is a nuisance that no homeowner wants to endure. Not only can this damage create the need for extensive cleanup, but it can cause problems even after cleanup has occurred. Mold, crumbled drywall, and warped flooring are just a few of the many issues that can come up without the tools and techniques necessary to restore your home. However, there is a team that can help.

If your Brandon home needs water damage cleanup that can start as soon as possible, you can count on certified SERVPRO technicians to get the job done right. These professionals receive extensive training in IICRC standards and techniques, which help preserve the consistent criteria for cleanliness and safety in a variety of water-related disasters. SERVPRO prioritizes restoration and repair over replacement whenever it is safe to do so to minimize loss for homeowners.

Why Professionals Can Help

When you choose SERVPRO for your water damage mitigation needs, you do not just get a cleanup crew: you get a team that is extremely knowledgeable of the damage that water can do to a structure. To illustrate:

  • Within minutes, water can spread throughout the property and saturate everything it touches. Porous surfaces like floors, walls, upholstery, and fabrics quickly absorb water. Furniture finishes can bleed, which can stain nearby surfaces, particularly carpets. Paper goods and photographs may swell and warp.
  • Within the first 24 hours, drywall starts to swell and break down, and metal surfaces can tarnish. Furniture frames can swell and crack while dyes and inks from cloth and paper can spread and stain nearby porous surfaces. Odors may become evident.
  • Within two days to one week of exposure to water, mold, and mildew can grow and spread on your property. Structural materials like doors, windows, and studs start to swell and warp from exposure. Furniture and wood flooring can deform even further and show signs of mold growth. Paint can blister, and there is a possibility of biohazard contamination on the property.

Cleanup and restoration needs for the structure grow exponentially after a week or more of moisture exposure.

How SERVPRO Saves the Day

Because SERVPRO knows the ins and outs of water damage mitigation, you can expect a high standard of clean from this team. On top of that, these technicians have the tools necessary to remove water and disinfect surfaces. The first step after assessing the situation and forming a plan of action is to extract the water to facilitate drying. Desiccant dehumidifiers can be used to take care of structural damages. Low grain refrigerant dehumidifiers LGR works on upholstery, fabrics, and other porous surfaces.

SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview is a team you can count on to be Faster to Any Size Disaster. Call (813) 741-3473 today for rapid disaster cleanup.

Emergency Repair and Later Restoration of a Brandon Office

The restoration and recovery of a water loss in your Brandon office happen in phases. Should disasters strike during working hours, you need to find a suitable solution that can keep your facility open to your customers until restoration work can safely begin. A prompt response with our emergency services, including extraction and controlled demolition, can allow the business to remain open until the workday ends, and our SERVPRO technicians can get to work on restoration.

Emergency repairs do not fully resolve the water damage to Brandon offices, and often the full recovery of your property involves the use of many restoration tools, machines, products, and techniques. A priority of our rapid response team arriving at your office building is determining the source of the water damage and addressing it whenever possible. Ruptures to the plumbing after pipes freezing or a broken faucet might allow for substantial water depositing on the floors, and require repair before extraction and drying efforts can be practical.

At first, repairs to the plumbing can begin when our in-house contractors arrive at the office building. Because there are so many desks and other furniture that can get saturated by standing water concerns, extraction is also a vital element to the pre-restoration process. With the appropriate containment strategies in place to encase the drying zones like the damaged bathrooms, we can work to keep your office open until closing time.

While the full measure of restoration work does not begin when our rapid response team first arrives, preliminary actions can reduce total property loss. With efficient drying tools like our air movers and dehumidifiers, we can make short work of compromising water loss effects.

The recovery of your office building, including the containment of the source of the water loss, involves a combination of our experienced SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview technicians and in-house commercial contractors. From our emergency response to our tireless work to get your doors back open, it is our business to get you back in business. Give us a call at (813) 741-3473.
