Professional Assistance after Commercial Water Damage in Your Orlando Bakery Helps in Many Ways

9/4/2020 (Permalink)

Bakery shop SERVPRO wants your establishment to be successful with water damage remediation; let us help with your sweets.

Let Us Complete Your Water Damage Cleanup in Orlando.

Water damage in a commercial establishment such as a bakery creates several problems. Apart from inconveniencing your regular customers who have to go without their favorite pastries, it can also damage your premises. One excellent way to respond to such incidents in Orlando is to hire a professional such as SERVPRO to help because you benefit in several ways.

One effect commercial water damage in your Orlando bakery might have is contamination. Such contamination can originate from several sources, including spoilt foodstuff due to water exposure or microbial growth, which happens when water sits for extended periods. Contamination is a grave concern in food-related businesses because of the risk of food poisoning. Our SERVPRO technicians take different steps to eliminate contaminants. We extract any standing water using various advanced equipment such as portable or truck-mounted extractors. We also use EPA registered disinfectants when cleaning surfaces.

Exposure to water can damage various building materials in your bakery. The water can interfere with floor materials such as tiles, vinyl, or laminate, and the trim such as baseboards and door trim. Removing such materials is necessary for restoration. Such removal should not cause or worsen damage to surrounding materials. Our SERVPRO technicians have the necessary training in rebuilding services, allowing them to safely demolish the affected areas. For instance, we use simple procedures such as bracing drywall during removal to ensure that salvageable panels can be reinstalled once cleanup is over, saving cost.

A wide variety of waste materials piles up after water damage. Waste may include residues dissolved in the water and debris that comes from the demolition process. Apart from the menial task of aggregating such waste, we need to dispose of waste properly according to local regulations. Such regulations differ from state to state and in different cities within a state. Our SERVPRO technicians undergo regular training, which updates them with the current regulation on waste disposal, so you don't have to learn them.

Hiring a professional mitigation service helps you concentrate on your core business functions. Call SERVPRO of South Orlando at (407) 985-3200. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

SERVPRO Says No to Flood Damage in South Orlando Businesses

Essential Steps When Dealing with Commercial Flood Damage in South Orlando

Weather events can cause considerable inconvenience when they flood commercial establishments. Such an incident can produce widespread damages whether caused by driving rain filtering through an opening or a full-blown flooding incident that drives contaminated groundwater into the premises. The actions you take immediately after the incident help the business resume normal operations. Our professional mitigation services have helped save many local businesses.
 
Before starting the restoration processed after commercial flood damage in South Orlando, it is a good idea to do some evaluation to establish the level of water migration since porous materials such as carpets and drywall absorb water fast. It should also help determine the volume of water, types of contaminants, and debris present to come up with the right response plan. The team from SERVPRO uses advanced detection equipment such as thermal cameras to establish the level of water migration in porous materials and concealed spaces. Our technicians also wear necessary PPE, Personal Protective Equipment, allowing them to wade into the water safely checking for debris and other problems.
 
Cleaning the affected areas should help remove contaminants and debris. In many cases, this is easier said than done. Our SERVPRO technicians spray disinfectants directly into the floodwater to control microorganisms. We also use OSHA approved cleaning agents to ensure we clean the affected areas to sanitary levels. To remove soils and other debris from hard surfaces, we have pressure washers among other equipment. Cleaniåçng porous materials to rid them of contaminants is not possible so we might need to remove items like carpets, drywall, or upholstery affected by the floodwaters.
 
An issue like bad odor can have significant ramifications in a commercial establishment. While your employees may be a bit tolerant, your customers might not. Bad smells are typical after flooding incidents because of microbial growth or hidden wastes from the flooding. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you deodorize the areas in question through fogging and other techniques.

Calll SERVPRO of South Orlando to help you restore it to preloss state. You can reach us at (407) 985-3200 any time. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Don't Let Flood Damage in South Orlando Melt Your Ice Cream Shop Dreams

Helping an Ice Cream Shoppe Reopen After Sustaining Commercial Flood Damage in South Orlando

Once our area experiences a flood, we work with Conway businesses in the steps needed to reopen their doors to the public. Every business plays a crucial role in our local economy. Businesses of all sizes, including small ice cream shops, require specialized skills to ensure the safety of employees and customers.  

Businesses that find themselves facing commercial flood damage in Conway want to reopen quickly. Customers need to know that favorite locations can reopen and help the area start feeling like it did before the disaster occurred. SERVPRO technicians live in the area and want the same thing. We always arrive Faster To Any Size Disaster and work through the project's completion. Flood damage poses particular risks to businesses that prepare food, and we understand these concerns.  

Our IICRC training and certification prepare us for many possible scenarios. Flooding around food almost always means that refrigerated items need throwing away, as do any products that came into direct contact with the water. We arrange for containers of appropriate sizes to assist us in safely disposing of everything that requires removal from the premises. After we remove everything necessary, we start cleaning and sanitizing your shop.  

All food containers and preparation areas, bins, shelves, and other surfaces need to become clean and safe once more. We remove all of the silt and debris from these locations, and also the floor, walls, and anywhere else that floodwaters touched. Thorough cleaning brings back safe conditions.  

After we clean and then dry your business, we can concentrate on deodorization. We use both ozone and hydroxyl gas generators. If wet carpeting or other textiles exist, we prefer to use hydroxyl gas instead of ozone. It takes slightly longer, but it is much safer to use than ozone.  

SERVPRO of South Orlando employees live and work in your area, be it Belle Isle, SK Lake, or Pine Castle, and we want to help get your shop's doors open again by mitigating flood damage and its effects. Contact us at (407) 985-3200, 24/7, any day of the year, and we can begin making everything perfect again.

South Orlando Mold Remediation Information for Commercial Warehouses

SERVPRO Can Cleanup Mold Damage in South Orlando Business Structures

If a slow water leak ever develops in your manufacturing plant located in South Orlando, many problems can develop if the source is not repaired quickly. Any time water gets into a building it follows gravity and affects the lowest level the most. Many warehouses and offices utilize ground level areas for storage of products and materials. When water gets into these lower level storage facilities water can damage not only the building's structure but the items and inventory you have stored as well. If objects and building materials stay wet for an extended period, then many more issues can take place. Stored products remaining wet can cause damage over time such as rusting metal parts, ruined insulation and mold growth. Water can also cause drywall to lose its structural integrity and fall apart. If wooden materials stay wet, they can warp or curve. Cartons are composed of an organic substance and have the potential of being a food source for fungi.
 
Sometimes a slow leak can take place at your business, and the problems go unnoticed for a long time. Most commercial mold damage projects in South Orlando result from a water leak that did not get promptly mitigated after it happened. After a building has been wet for longer than 48 hours, microbial growth can take place. Once microbes form the contamination and spores can spread to other areas of the structure.
 
When first arriving at your manufacturing plant, our SERVPRO technicians inspect the area. Once the mold infested rooms or sections are uncovered, we take measure to prevent the spreading of spores. To do this, we can isolate using poly sheeting the contaminated parts of your building so that spores and mold particles to not spread to unaffected regions of the structure.
 
Once our SERVPRO restoration team establishes a containment area, we then figure out what items can be treated and restored and which materials are non-salvageable. When working at your place of business, we conduct all of our procedures so that the process is as smooth flowing for you and your insurance company. We can pack-out inventory and products for off-site cleaning if necessary.
 
When working with mold, extra precautions must be taken so that particles do not spread and cause air quality issues at your plant. Fungi can cause health effects with some people so if you ever notice microbial growth at your business, call SERVPRO of South Orlando at (407) 985-3200 24/7.

SERVPRO Quickly Investigates and Remediates a Business Mold Infestation

Movie theaters are a common sight to see throughout the Conway area, as this is one of the iconic date night activities available to people of all ages.

What many business owners do not understand about commercial mold damages they find in their Conway properties, is that the creation of these colonies is rather simple. All that omnipresent spores in the environment need to grow and thrive is moisture, warmer temperatures and some variety of organic material to seat the organism. Once these conditions get met, your business is continually at risk for the development of mold and fungal growths.

Often finding the source of the moisture in the affected areas is sufficient for preventing the majority of this present risk, but the damage could have already occurred. The best way to identify the progression of mold in your business, whether there are clear signs of colonies or not, is to allow SERVPRO to conduct an inspection of the property to look for signs of fungal growth and to assess your risks of forming colonies.

Questions You Might Have About Black Mold Damage in South Orlando

7/10/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Remediates Mold Damage Leaving Your Home Safe

One of the most infamous and troublesome types of mold damage in South Orlando is black mold, a colloquial term for several species of aggressive fungi that can cause more problems than other, similar varieties of mold. Black mold infestations grow and function much like ordinary colonies, but can have different and more severe consequences, including an increased risk of health effects for the home's residents. Handling these species requires a unique set of certifications carried by few companies aside from SERVPRO to adequately cover the specific safety and treatment considerations involved in a professional cleanup.

How Concerned Should I Be?

Horror stories of black mold damage in communities like South Orlando abound online, but the reality is a bit more nuanced. While black mold can cause health effects in many people, the severity of these complications can depend on exposure time, the extent of growth, and the specific variety that is growing in your home. We recommend you call us as soon as you find signs of damage so that we can send an inspector over within a matter of hours to evaluate the situation and provide more detailed safety recommendations for your household.

What Other Consequences Could Come?

In addition to heightened health risks, black mold can cause many of the same damages to your home that other fungi can. Without professional remediation, the problem can start to eat away at your home and cause lasting visual and structural damage to the building. Additional safety precautions and sterilization measures may also lengthen the time we take to solve the problem, potentially increasing costs incurred during the restoration process.

How Can SERVPRO Solve the Problem?

We handle black mold much in the same way as other fungal damage, conducting simultaneous efforts to quarantine, neutralize, and clean up after multiple patches of growth at once. Throughout the work, our technicians have access to heavy-duty environmental protection gear to prepare them for even the most extreme risks. Without this equipment, it may be very unsafe to continue living and working in the area until the remediation project reaches completion. We take extra care to sanitize the area when black mold is involved to make sure that no safety risks remain after we leave.

SERVPRO of South Orlando has the training and equipment necessary to handle even the most extensive and dangerous mold damage situations in local homes. Call us at (407) 985-3200 to find out how we can help.

No owner wants to find themselves in a situation where they should reach out for local water cleanup services.

South Orlando Fabrication Plants Call on SERVPRO to Extract Water after a Mishap

Restoring a Factory with Commercial Water Removal Services in South Orlando

Once a factory or other assembly plant in South Orlando sustains an incident involving a water loss, getting things dry again to protect employee health and safety, machinery, and productivity should begin immediately. Relying on drains to take care of the problem can only do so much. Overhead sources of water can ruin delicate machines, as well as form pools of water in depressions in pieces of equipment, as well as in supplies and materials.
 
At SERVPRO, we are proud to be able to help other businesses around Edgewood with commercial water removal methods so they can continue serving the public. We want our economy to stay strong, and this is how we can do our part. Removing the water from where it might otherwise stay trapped, slowly evaporating into the air, helps your factory's indoor air quality remain wholesome. It also prevents corrosion of metal and keeps microbial infestations from developing as readily as they can when excess moisture permits them to grow.
 
When your equipment retains water, we can suction the water out of these machines and then wipe them down; we arrive with all of the tools needed, including ladders and buckets, helping ensure that your employees can continue their jobs with little or no interruption from us. Extracting the water and then wiping the machine down, with oil when called for by the machinery's maintenance instructions, protects your equipment from possible problems.
 
Floors and other areas that your employees occupy may also need extraction work performed. Break rooms can become damp and musty when water saturates such areas, ruining food preparation equipment. Your employees need to eat during their breaks to stay energetic.
 
We also want to keep your workers safe while in your plant. With water removal, we work to keep corrosion control and eliminate the possibility wherever we can. Air movers help us keep moisture from condensing on surfaces and also directs water vapor toward desiccation machines. These withdraw moisture from the air and release dry air back into the area we are treating.
 
Using our various machines and tools, we protect your equipment and building from harm. SERVPRO of South Orlando water removal and extraction specialists can make things safe again so your employees can remain productive. Contact us by calling (407) 985-3200 for 24-hour service.

Our Technicians Can Restore Your South Orlando Business After A Mold Damage Disaster

7/9/2020 (Permalink)

Mold can present some serious issues for your restaurant in South Orlando. It can cause health concerns for employees and even customers as well, and lead to a loss of work hours or even cause you to close your doors temporarily. Knowing how to prevent mold damage in the first place helps avoid any downtime for your business.

Mold damage in your South Orlando business is something that should be taken care of right away. If you notice an outbreak of mold, get in touch with our professionals at SERVPRO immediately. As an experienced remediation company, we can take care of the mold quickly and thoroughly with our tools and knowledge before the mold spreads further.

Wherever there is the presence of moisture, mold can begin to grow in just twenty-four hours. To prevent this, keep an eye out for any leaks around your restaurant and take care of them right away, even if it requires the assistance of a plumber. Fix any roof leaks as well and keep gutters cleaned out. Even a slow drip can escalate into a more significant issue if it is not fixed.

When the mold is present already, and you need us to help clean up the mess, SERVPRO technicians assess the damage and then section off the affected area using plastic sheeting and create negative airspace. We do this to prevent the mold from spreading to other areas of your restaurant while we do the cleanup and restoration. We also use protective gear to keep us from breathing in the disturbed mold spores.

When you find mold in your business, leave the cleaning to us instead of relying on store-bought cleaners. Many people believe they can clean up the mold by using regular bleach. However, bleach contains water, so even if it kills some of the spores, it is adding moisture to the mold and lets it continue to grow.

If there are any contaminated items in the affected area such as rugs or furniture, we may need to remove them while we work and clean them at a separate location. If the infestation is severe, we may need to replace some structural items such as drywall or subflooring.

To keep an eye out for mold damage you can also monitor your humidity levels in the building. There are inexpensive monitors available for purchase which can alert you to any spikes in the moisture content in the air. Proper ventilation, especially in the kitchen, also helps to keep moisture out. Overhead vents and fans are essential in a working kitchen.

SERVPRO of South Orlando can help you clean up a mold infestation in your business in Sky Lake, Pine Castle, or Edgewood thoroughly and quickly. Please reach out to us by dialing (407) 985-3200 as soon as you find the issue.

Here is What You Should Do With Commercial Water Damage Remediation in Your Orlando Business

Some of the Most Regular Water Damages We See in Orlando Hotels

Water damage can happen anywhere in a hotel, but some areas and types of damage happen far more often than others. When problems go beyond simple cleanup and sanitation matters, your cleaning personnel or company may be ill-equipped to handle the consequences of significant water damage. SERVPRO specializes in providing fast and complete services for hotels in the area, ensuring that rooms stay clean, undamaged, and pleasant-smelling after the incident. If any of these common problems happen in your building, call us or use our Emergency Ready Profile system to get a crew of technicians to your location.

Overflowing Sinks and Bathtubs

One of the most common reasons for us to be called into a hotel in Orlando for water damage cleanup and restoration is when a guest causes a sink or bathtub to overflow. Determining when and why these problems happen can be difficult while guests remain in their rooms so it may not be uncommon to only find out about the matter days later or when water starts to leak elsewhere and cause further damages. SERVPRO inspectors create a detailed assessment of the situation to understand what specific problems might come from these scenarios and can provide an estimate of our work times and costs.

Water Line Leaks and Breaks

With so many water lines running throughout the building, it may not be uncommon for them to leak or burst, especially when they are very old. Be sure to call us as soon as you suspect that a water line may have been ruptured, as the speed of our response may be critical to prevent as much damage as possible. To avoid most water line problems in your hotel, make sure that pipes receive semi-regular maintenance and checkups.

Left-Open Windows

If guests can open windows in the rooms of your hotel, they may sometimes forget to close them before a storm rolls through the area. Rain pouring in through an open window can cause significant damage to the furniture and carpeting of the room, but most of the worst effects can be prevented through a quick call to and response from SERVPRO.

SERVPRO of South Orlando can handle both small, isolated incidents and large-scale disasters throughout an entire building. For the best outcomes, call us as quickly as possible after an incident at (407) 985-3200.

Remediation of Commercial Mold Damage in a Conway Cinema

5/8/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Can Help to Keep Your Cinema Safe and Free of Mold Damage

Both tourists and the local population in Conway enjoy movies. It can take much labor to keep the audience's seating accommodations clean. Because microbes do not require a lengthy period to go from dormant to active stages, they can quickly become a problem.

When moisture from soda and other drinks remain long enough to soak into the carpet in your Conway cinema, commercial mold damage can begin growing. Once this begins, standard cleaning rarely suffices for removing the problem. SERVPRO can help by cleaning not only the carpeting but also the upholstery. Doing so removes any mold spores that landed on the cushions or backrests. As needed, we can clean drapes and screens, also.

While we remediate, our technicians use negative air pressure to push loose spores and mold particles out of your cinema. Because of the popularity of cinemas, we know the importance of remaining open during peak showings. We can schedule our work during less popular times. Working as quickly as possible, we can complete the mold removal process so your cinema can return to its regular operations as soon as possible.

Occasionally, carpeting can become damaged by microbial growth and activity, making it unrestorable by typical methods. Removing such carpeting can also take place by our crews. When this becomes necessary, we cut out sections so we can easily handle each small roll, bagging it up and removing it from the premises. The use of HEPA filters on our equipment helps keep spores from spreading, including those particles already floating in the air.

When carpet requires removal to ensure proper remediation, we carry this step out first, before the other steps involved. Once moldy carpet no longer poses the threat of spreading spores, we can move forward with the other methods. Other materials that may contain extensive mold damage include walls near corners and floors and the underside of seats. Biocidal agents can render any microorganisms inert.

SERVPRO of South Orlando wants to help you provide a safe and clean environment for your patrons. Calling us at (407) 985-3200 begins the process of remediating mold damage.

Commercial Black Water: 3 Facts You Need To Know

1/14/2020 (Permalink)

Commercial Building Flooded With Black Water Black Water and Commercial Buildings with Water Damage.

Your South Orlando commercial building can be affected by flooding from several sources. Water Damage can include warped flooring and moldy drywall, but one of the more immediate issues caused by flooding is the influx of contaminated water. If your business has recently been damaged by flooding, it can be helpful to understand how this type of water can cause long-term damage and what you can do to mitigate it. 

1. It Can Contain Dangerous Chemicals 

Environmental experts often call contaminated water that stems from flooding Category 3, or “black water.” This means the water did not come from a sterile source and may contain a variety of hazardous components, including harsh sewer and lawn chemicals that entered the water during flooding. These chemicals can make the water dangerous to touch, so calling in a flood damage and cleanup service is the safest way to have it removed. 

2. It May Make You Sick 

Category 3 water damage can be dangerous in more than one way. For example, standing black water can grow microbes that may cause a variety of illnesses. Urine and feces may also be present, even if they are not immediately visible, so it is wise to avoid this type of water completely and wait for professional cleanup services to arrive. 

3. Acting Quickly Can Be Essential 

Because contaminated water can become more dangerous the longer it sits, it is a good idea to call in a cleanup crew right away. This can be important even if you believe the worst of the damage has already been done. Having the water removed may reduce the chances of long-term issues with your building’s affected floors and walls and prevent mold growth, which can be difficult to treat once it takes hold. 

Black water damage can harm your  commercial building in several ways. However, when you know its dangers and how to combat it, you may be able to prevent the worst of the destruction.

If your commercial building has experienced a water emergency call SERVPRO of South Orlando at (470) 895-3200.

Saving Facilities After Silicone Roof Water Damage in Orlando

As many Florida business owners know, water damage is the second most common type of claim that they can make. A staggering 20% of all insurance claims filed are related to water damage of some kind, whether this is from a pipe malfunction, storm damage, or other water-related issues. Without thorough mitigation and drying, this damage can pose challenges to the structural integrity of your business as well as the safety of employees and customers.

If your Orlando office needs commercial water damage mitigation, you can count on a certified SERVPRO team to handle the damages quickly and efficiently, so you can get back to business. No matter how large or small the disaster, professionals are dedicated to restoring your business and ensuring that cleanup is done to code.

Silicone Roofing Risks

While silicone roof coatings can help business owners with flat roofing save on electricity and other costs, there are some risks to consider when implementing this in your space after water damage strikes. These include:

  • Abrasion and tear resistance. Compared to other coatings like modified bitumen, silicone roofing is not the most durable. It can get very slippery when wet, which can make it more prone to tears. Foot traffic, dropped tools, and other activities can potentially damage the coating. 
  • Attracting dirt. Silicone roofing, which is often white, can get a visible coat of airborne dust and dirt over time, which can darken the roofing. Clean regularly to maximize the energy-reflective nature of the roof coating and save on HVAC costs.
  • Recoating. While recoating may not be needed as often as it is for other roofing solutions, it is imperative to choose silicone that is compatible with your current coating. 

How SERVPRO Saves Your Facilities

If you have a roof leak in your facilities, SERVPRO can you use centrifugal air movers and low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers in tandem to pull moisture off of surfaces and eliminate it, replacing the moist air with air that is warm and dry. To dry a wet ceiling, technicians may open a few ceiling panels on either end of the affected area and position equipment so that air circulates straight up and through the space between your ceiling and roofing. This placement also helps warm, dry air circulate through the affected space for better results.

SERVPRO of South Orlando is here to ensure that your business looks, "Like it never even happened." Call (407) 985-3200 today for rapid disaster mitigation.
