Water Damage Restoration: A Checklist

With a wide range of hiking and biking trails and unique sites like the Plantation Farmer’s Market and the nearby Deerfield Beach Boardwalk, Plantation, FL is a nature lover’s delight. Unfortunately, Mother Nature isn’t always as welcoming as we’d like and when storms strike they can bring devastating water damage to a home or business.

That’s why the professionals at SERVPRO of Plantation should be your first call for any water related emergency. We’re prepared to take your call 24/7 and we’ve got the training and expertise to handle any job.

Our technicians follow a specific checklist to ensure that the restoration process is completed quickly and thoroughly:

  1. Identify the Source and Type of Water – The first step is identifying the source and stopping it to prevent further damage. At the same time, we’ll determine the level of contamination by identifying the type of water involved.
  2. Inspect the Premises and Assess the Damage – Next we’ll thoroughly inspect the entire premises and assess the extent of the damage, identifying any particular safety issues that need to be addressed.
  3. Check for Mold – Mold is one of the biggest dangers presented by any water damage, so we’ll check for any signs of mold growth and perform a complete mold remediation.
  4. Remove Standing Water – Submersible pumps and industrial strength wet/dry vacs are used to remove all standing water.
  5. Deodorize and Disinfect – We use deodorizers and EPA-registered disinfectants as antimicrobial treatments to ensure the entire premises is completely clean and safe.
  6. Determine What Can be Salvaged – We’ll perform a complete inventory as we go along and if anything is deemed unsalvageable by you or your adjuster, we’ll make sure it’s safely removed.
  7. Monitor Temperature/Humidity Levels – Temperature and humidity levels will be carefully monitored throughout the restoration to facilitate the drying process.
  8. Thoroughly Dry – All moisture is removed from the surface and air using industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers.

Water damage can leave you stressed, but you don’t have to go it alone. Call SERVPRO of Plantation and rest easy knowing you’ve got neighbors on hand to help get you on your feet again. We respond faster to any disaster and we won’t finish the job until we know you’re satisfied. That’s what being a community means to us.

Safest Fire Restoration in Plantation

3/17/2021 (Permalink)

Handling a Fire Disaster? You aren't alone, we have your back.

Safest Fire Restoration in Plantation

Any disaster can take a toll on a home or business but perhaps nothing is more devastating than the effects of a fire. Fires usually strike suddenly and cause a wide range of damage, which can leave you reeling and unsure of where to turn for help. As desperate as you may feel, it’s important to know that you can turn to SERVPRO for the safest fire restoration services in the Plantation area.

As beautiful as Plantation is, it’s hard to think about something as awful as fire striking, but unfortunately it can occur at any time. For the many residents of the area to businesses like Aetna Insurance and other large and small companies that call Plantation home, it’s essential to have a professional restoration company to rely on when a fire occurs so that you know you’re in good hands.

Understanding The Full Scope of Fire Damage

Of course the immediate picture most people have of fire damage is burned and broken belongings, scorched structures and melted plastics caused by the extreme heat of flames. Sadly, in terms of fire damage that only begins to scratch the surface. There is much more to fire damage and all of it has to be taken into consideration when performing safe and thorough restoration services.

Flames bring along the added hazard of smoke and soot, both of which can permeate surfaces and cause health effects. In order to thoroughly restore fire damaged property, a careful and exacting cleaning process is required, using professional quality equipment and specialized training. Professionals will also need to assess each item to determine if it is capable of being restored or will need to be discarded.

Surprisingly, when it comes to fire damage the single most harmful factor is actually water. While water is essential for putting out fires, it can also compound the damage to homes, businesses and belongings from the fire itself and may lead to rotting of support systems as well as mold growth and infestation if it is not addressed quickly and thoroughly.

SERVPRO Addresses All Fire Damage

It’s usually impossible to avoid fire damage, which is why it is so important to make sure that the damage is addressed properly. Because fire can affect every part of a residential or commercial property, right down to the interior support structure, it is essential to move quickly and safely when handling fire damage. The sooner you begin the restoration process, the sooner you can get back on your feet again and the better your chances of reducing your expenses.

SERVPRO understands the need for speed, so we’re ready to respond to your call 24/7. We’ll have a technician on-site to perform a thorough assessment of your damage within four hours of your original call and we’ll have a customized plan of action specific to your property within eight hours when we supply a complete verbal briefing.

We’ll even provide a thorough inventory of all of your damaged surfaces and belongings to help expedite the process of filing your insurance claim. We understand how emotional this time can be for you and we’re prepared to do everything we can to make it easier on you and ultimately help you to get the reimbursement you deserve.

Of course, our goal with any property is to make it “Like it never even happened,” and we’ll always proceed with that in mind. Our technicians will put their training and expertise to use to make sure that the restoration process is handled as safely as possible in the shortest amount of time so that you can put the pain behind you and let the healing begin.

The Professional Approach To Fire Restoration

Dealing with the aftermath of a fire can be overwhelming, which is why it is so important to have professionals that you can depend on. At SERVPRO, we understand how difficult this time can be and we have the training and equipment to handle the job efficiently and safely, so you never have to go through the restoration process alone.

Our quick and thorough process begins by responding faster to any disaster. Once we have assessed your damage and drawn up your personalized comprehensive plan of action, we’ll provide you with a detailed explanation of every step that we’ll be taking in the restoration process so that you always understand exactly what’s happening. We’ll then complete pre-testing of all surfaces and items so we can determine exactly what is able to be restored and what must be discarded.

Our restoration process includes the latest techniques and high-tech state-of-the-art equipment that can handle any size job. Our Ultra Low Volume (ULV) and Thermal foggers can remove all hazardous odors from any type of surface while our industrial vacuums with HEPA filters remove all water and help to mitigate mold growth to prevent infestation.

We use industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry all surfaces and employ specialized techniques where necessary to address any salvageable belongings. When the restoration process is finished we’ll perform a complete walkthrough of the property with you to ensure that you are completely satisfied with what we’ve done.

Because filing an insurance claim can be one of the most time consuming and emotionally trying parts of the entire restoration experience, we’ll even help you generate a comprehensive room-by-room inventory to facilitate matters. We know that the most important thing for you is to get your property back to its previous state, so we’ll do everything we can to help you get back on your feet as soon as possible.

Don’t Go It Alone

Unfortunately, even a place as beautiful as the Plantation area is not immune to the devastation caused by fire.  SERVPRO is a part of the Plantation community and we understand that devastation all too well, which is why we’re prepared to respond quickly when you need us most. There is no reason why you should have to face the emotional journey through the repair and restoration process alone when there are trained professionals that you can count on.

When fire strikes your home or business, your first response should be to call the professionals at SERVPRO. We’ve got the training and equipment necessary to handle any level of fire damage and we’ll treat every property with the utmost care, just as if it were our own.

At SERVPRO we make it our business to respond faster to any disaster and to handle every fire restoration job with the utmost safety. That’s the professional difference and that’s the experience you’ll get when you call SERVPRO.

Water Restoration Techniques in Plantation, FL

Water is one of the most destructive forces on Earth, and one of the most underestimated. Even the smallest trickle of water, if left unchecked, can have a devastating effect on a home or business. No matter what the cause, from a burst pipe to an overflowing appliance or a storm surge, water damage can be dangerous and even deadly.

Water is a part of life here in the Plantation, FL area but when it becomes too much to handle, residents and business owners need a water restoration service they can turn to for professional help and that’s where SERVPRO comes in.

There is so much to love in this beautiful area, from sandy beaches to the bustling “Plantation Midtown” business district. With its ideal location in the center of South Florida, Plantation is home to many businesses both large and small as well as several residential neighborhoods including Historic Old Plantation.

Unfortunately, situated along the sunny Atlantic coast, it is also vulnerable to hurricanes, which can bring heavy rains and storm surge that lead to water damage. SERVPRO is part of this community too, so we understand the challenges that the weather can bring and we’re prepared to respond 24/7 to help our neighbors when they’re in need.

Unlike almost any other water restoration service, we have cutting edge training that enables us to respond quickly and professionally to any size job. Once on site, we use the latest techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to handle water damage thoroughly so that your property will look “Like it never even happened.”

We also understand how devastating a water emergency can be and we’ll go out of our way to treat your property as if it were our own, including keeping you informed at every step of the process so you know exactly what’s happening.

The techniques we use are geared toward addressing water damage quickly and thoroughly, regardless of the underlying cause:

  1. Initial Contact – The first step is taking your call for help. We know that disaster can strike at any time and speed is always crucial since the longer water is allowed to stand in one place the more damage it can do. That’s why our operators are available 24/7 so we can take your call and get the process started immediately. They’re also trained to treat you with care as well as ask specific questions to help us determine exactly what resources we’ll need to handle your job.
  2. Inspection and Water Damage Assessment – Within four hours of your call we’ll have a technician on site to perform a thorough inspection and assess the extent of the damage. First and foremost, we’ll identify the source of the problem and do whatever is necessary to stop it, then we’ll determine the exact type of water involved and the extent of the damage. The specific techniques used for restoration will depend on the level of contamination that’s present. Once we know exactly what we’re dealing with, we’ll be able to take the necessary safety precautions as well as move any furniture or other items to facilitate the restoration and prevent rust or stains on carpeting and flooring.
  3. Removal/Extraction – With a thorough assessment of the damage we can then begin the actual removal of all standing water. If we determine that an extensive process will be necessary, SERVPRO can help you to move your belongings to prevent any further damage. We will then employ submersible pumps and industrial grade wet/dry vacuums to remove all standing water as well as moisture detectors and hygrometers to measure the extent of moisture both on surfaces and in the air. Infrared cameras help to detect any “hidden” water behind walls or in ceilings to ensure that every bit of moisture is removed.
  4. Drying/Dehumidification – The next step of the process is to thoroughly dry all surfaces. We use industrial grade air movers and dehumidifiers to ensure that all moisture is completely removed from both the affected area and any surrounding rooms. Throughout the drying process, we’ll monitor progress with moisture meters until we are satisfied that the humidity and moisture levels are once again at a safe level. This monitoring is crucial to avoid warping of floors, walls and furniture as well as other damage.
  5. Cleaning/Sanitizing – Removal and drying are only half of the process. Even after it’s gone, water can leave behind a dirty and potentially hazardous mess, especially if it is contaminated. Once the affected area has been thoroughly dried, we’ll clean everything, including furniture, upholstery, clothing or any other restorable belongings. We’ll use air scrubbers and fogging equipment to help remove any lingering odors and apply antimicrobial, antibacterial and disinfectant treatments to completely sanitize all surfaces. If there are any items that you or your insurance adjuster deem unsalvageable we’ll also do everything we can to help you safely dispose of them.
  6. Restoration – The restoration process doesn’t end with removal and cleaning. In fact, it may just be beginning but SERVPRO is prepared to see it through and make you feel whole again. That may require repair and reconstruction including drywall removal and installation, hardwood or tile floor repair, painting, or carpet repair and installation. We understand how important it is to get your property back to its previous state and we won’t be satisfied until we know that you are.

The Professional Touch You Can Trust

No matter how you look at it, water damage can be devastating. When the water involved is contaminated, either with sewage, storm debris or other potential hazards, it can be extremely dangerous. When you find yourself facing this kind of damage it may be tempting to just roll up your sleeves and start the work yourself but this is when you really need to rely on the professionals to get the job done right. 

At SERVPRO we understand the dangers that water can present and we’ve got the training and equipment necessary to deal with them in a safe and efficient manner. Our comprehensive step-by-step process can cover any size job and ensures that your home or business is fully restored with the care and concern that you’d expect. 

We also know how stressful it can be to try and tackle the often complicated process of filing an insurance claim, so we’ll do everything we can to help you through it so that you can get the compensation you deserve. Ultimately, the healing process can only really begin once your property is restored, so we’re prepared to do everything that’s necessary to get you to that point as quickly and easily as possible.

Restoring Our Community

As your neighbors, SERVPRO knows that restoring your property is important because it means restoring our community. That’s why we take a professional approach designed to make your property “Like it never even happened.” The peace of mind that restoration brings is something we all share and that’s why we’ll always go the extra mile to ensure that you’re back on your feet again after any kind of emergency strikes.
