Water Removal and Deodorization for Your Destin Home


When a water disaster happens in your Destin home, it can be devastating. Whether it is a leaking dishwasher or an overflowed bathtub, you have much damage to deal with now to get your home back to the way it was.

Another problem that comes along when you need water removal for your Destin home is the removal of any odors caused by materials in your home being saturated with water. Not only do you need a professional who can remove the water, but you also need a company who can successfully deodorize your home as well. When you look at our staff and training standards, it is easy to see why SERVPRO is a smart choice in these situations.

Our first step in deodorization is to remove the source of the odor. Therefore, in a water damage situation, the removal of the moisture is our priority. Sometimes, effective deodorization requires us to use multiple methods, as one deodorant might not work on all odors. SERVPRO staff have specific guidelines for production for three processes of deodorization which include dry fogging, wet fogging, and activated oxygen.

With our injection method, we inject small amounts of deodorant into spots on upholstery or carpeting with a needle and syringe or a pump and injection needled. It is an especially helpful method when it is not practical to lift the carpet to get to the padding.

Direct spraying includes using a hand pump or powered sprayers to pump products in the area affected. Direct spraying is usually used in water damage situations to apply disinfectants. It wets the surface being treated, so it is used where discoloration does not matter or is unlikely.

Wet fogging disperses solvent and water-based deodorizers with an ultra-low volume fogger. The foggers create tiny deodorant particles, which penetrate most areas where odor particles hide.

We use high-velocity exhaust fans to ventilate your home both before and after deodorization. These fans ventilate your structure quickly and shorten the time needed before you can return to your home after deodorization is complete. Air scrubbers can also be used to remove airborne particles, plus chemicals and odors from the air. The devices draw dirty air through a series of filters, while capturing odors and particles, and then puts out clean air back to the environment.

Remediating Mold Growing In Destin Home’s Crawlspaces

Crawlspaces in Destin homes are notorious for being susceptible to moisture, groundwater, and other threats that could cause persistent dampness to the underside of your property.

In truth, the organism continues to spread quickly to affect more and more areas of your property and can travel through networks like your HVAC system to become widespread throughout your entire home.

Your Guide to Destin Home Water Damage Remediation

Water Damage Your Guide to Destin Home Water Damage Remediation Excess water and drywall are not a good mix. Be sure to contact SERVPRO should your family home face water damage.

Water Damage to Drywall in Your Destin Home

Certain materials used in the construction of your Destin home are more susceptible to damages than others. Drywall, in particular, is among the commonly used structural components that can quickly saturate water damage and prove difficult to salvage. Our professionals have a fast response in water loss emergencies, and part of this fast response is getting the appropriate equipment set up to salvage saturated materials when possible.

Water damage in Destin can spread quickly throughout your home, so it is critical to react quickly to these situations to get experienced professionals headed out to your property with the tools and expertise to help. Drywall can begin absorbing water almost instantaneously, which allows the material to get oversaturated after only a brief period. Understanding what water damage can do to the drywall in your home can help you understand the importance of reaching out to our SERVPRO professionals right away.

As soon as saturation begins in the drywall of your home, the composition of this material begins to change. Over as little as 24 hours, this material can begin to swell and bloat, causing it to lose its form and erode. While immediate response to the situation can often protect much of the drywall affected in your home, our professionals must assess the full scope of the damage when we arrive to determine how far the water damage has spread throughout these materials and how badly they have gotten affected.

Wicking is a problem for drywall, and typically this phenomenon happens from the baseboard up the wall. This situation causes the exposed portion of drywall to allow moisture to move up towards the ceiling. The designation of how far this moisture spreads gets determined by thermal imagery, and our SERVPRO professionals can make flood cuts to remove affected drywall and later replace it once drying has completed.

It is not uncommon for water damages within your home to affect the drywall. Our SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach rapid response team can work quickly to preserve these materials when possible, clean up the mess, and dry out other damaged elements. Give us a call anytime at (850) 863-2552.

After the Fire: Cleaning Versus Replacing Items From Your Fort Wall Home

11/15/2018 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO After the Fire:  Cleaning Versus Replacing Items From Your Fort Wall Home SERVPRO has cleaning methods to help salvage your personal property after a fire.

You Need Help Salvaging Items after Fire Damage in Fort Wall

Fires can be very destructive because many aspects, not just the flames, cause the damage on items. A combination of smoke residues, extreme temperatures, and combustion odors leaves many property owners in Fort Wall grappling with severe loss. Intercepting fires before they consume the entire structure is a good thing, but the process of salvaging undamaged items has its challenges too. Involving certified fire restoration technicians from the beginning is vital because they use their training to figure out the best approaches to help save more items.  

Among the steps that help improve salvage rate of items after fire damage in Fort Wall, is proper separation. When you look at the soot and other residues covering items, it is easy to assume that flames damaged them. Our SERVPRO crew makes it easier to separate items by grouping them into questionable, salvageable and unsalvageable items. Our electronic CCIS, Content Claim Inventory Service, further helps the process because we can create a room-by-room inventory. If the fire has only affected a few areas, it is easy to tell salvageable items such as those damaged by smoke by merely looking at a list.  

Cleaning items affected by the fire is usually better than replacing them. However, some cleaning actions can cause more damage. For example, wet cleaning can cause acoustic tiles to lose their sound-deadening capability. At SERVPRO, we have developed a specialized cleaning process called Peroxide Active Ceiling Cleaning, which removes all soot and leaves the acoustic characteristics intact. Our highly trained crews are also conversant with other specialized cleaning techniques that preserve other materials limiting what you have to replace after a blaze.  

Even after cleaning items and spaces affected by the fire, odors might persist. Such stubborn odors require specific deodorization efforts to eliminate them. Our SERVPRO technicians undergo training on how to establish odor sources and the best deodorization techniques. For example, we know that when there is high pressure during a fire, smoke residue is pushed to penetrate deep into insulation materials. In such cases, we remove the affected material. In other situations, we use specialized equipment such as hydroxyl generators to neutralize smells.  

You can improve the odds of salvaging items when you involve SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach. Call us at (850) 863-2552. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Some Ways to Avoid Extensive Complications When Dealing With a Destin Home Plumbing Break Scenario

11/9/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Some Ways to Avoid Extensive Complications When Dealing With a Destin Home Plumbing Break Scenario When a plumbing break has caused water damage requiring extensive restoration in your home, contact SERVPRO for efficient services.

Plumbing Breaks Can Flood Your Destin Residence

As vital as indoor plumbing is to your Destin home, many homeowners still know very little about the conditions that could affect and strain this network of piping throughout their property. When this strain or degradation leads to a break or leak from one of the supplied pipes, ongoing and damaging flow of water results. Until this supply to the line can get shut off, the pipe continues to lose water into the affected area or wall cavity.

As traumatic as this might initially seem, it is vital for you to respond quickly to get Destin water removal services promptly to your address. Our SERVPRO professionals have the advanced gear to make extraction work efficient, but our ability to preserve vital structural components and the contents of your home depends on your response time to the incident. Shortly after your call, our response team can have our Green Fleet vehicles loaded up and rolling out to your home.

Once we arrive, we can utilize our leak detection equipment to isolate the location of the damaged pipe. While severe damage to your plumbing system requires a licensed contractor, we can shut off the supply to this portion of a line or the house until the necessary repairs can get made. We work quickly to bring in the appropriate extraction equipment, and also have a truck-mounted pump for substantial volumes capable of pulling out 300 psi.

Having extracted the water from the affected areas, our SERVPRO technicians can then utilize our advanced thermal imagery cameras to determine moisture pockets behind walls and through affected surfaces to determine the height of flood cuts to get made. These controlled cuts to the drywall material give our technicians access to wall cavities for efficient drying techniques and ensure that dry and undamaged material gets installed to replace it.

While you cannot anticipate the strain and aging joints of your indoor plumbing system, you always have a team of highly trained professionals that can help you clean up the mess. Give our SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach water restoration technicians a call today at (850) 863-2552.

Avoid Fire in Your Destin Home by Taking Certain Preventative Precautions

10/27/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Avoid Fire in Your Destin Home by Taking Certain Preventative Precautions Portable heaters are helpful in the winter time but they have the potential to start a fire. Stay vigilant and call SERVPRO if you have fire damage.

Destin's Fire Damage Professionals Talk About Common Causes of Structural Burns

Nobody ever plans on starting a dangerous fire inside their Destin home, but sometimes accidents do happen. One moment you can be cooking dinner, the next minute putting out a fire, then next noticing the fire damage caused by the blaze. Some fires just happen due to electrical shorts, clogged chimneys, or broken furnaces and they are not necessarily easy to prevent. However, other structural fires ignite due to dangerous situations people create inside their own homes. By knowing the common causes, it is easier to prevent causing fire damage to your property.
 
First off, it is always important to have an emergency exit plan seen by all of the members of the household so that everyone knows the best way to get out of the house safely. Next, getting the flames extinguished quickly can save your Destin home from fire damage. Once the fire is out and no longer smoldering or burning, it is now safe to call in restoration experts such as SERVPRO. Problems associated with heat and smoke can be treated more efficiently if the process starts right away.
 
The most common cause of house fires is cooking equipment. It is important to never leave the kitchen while cooking to make sure nothing gets too hot. Heaters also cause many structural burns including portable space heaters and furnaces. Make sure not to put space heaters near flammable materials such as clothes or paper.
 
Indoor smoking also causes many blazes to start inside residences. Cigarettes can appear to be out but ignite things as soon as they come into contact with flammable materials. Electrical equipment is another common source for indoor burns. Anything that uses electricity can short out and cause a spark.
 
However, disasters are never planned, and some fires ignite due to no fault of the homeowner. If this occurs at your home, our SERVPRO technicians are available to help you mitigate your problems all hours of the day. If you are ever the victim of a structural fire, call SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach at (850) 863-2552 immediately after the blaze gets extinguished.

Water Damage Our State-Of-The-Art Equipment That Can Save Your Destin Home From Water Damage It takes some advanced gadgets to complete the water removal process.

The Infrared Camera Technology For Water Removal In The Destin Location

If you have just suffered water damage from a leaky roof, broken laundry, or bad plumbing, then you must be searching for information regarding water removal. Water removal is a tricky process because there are times that you may think that everything is dry, but when in fact, excess water can be lurking in places that you might not even think to look.

It takes some advanced gadgets to complete the water removal process in the Destin location. For example, the infrared camera can help detect excess water in the walls, doors, floor, or anywhere that we did not notice. With the infrared camera, it can save us from long-term and expensive repairs and replacements from hidden water damage. If water is left untreated, it can lead to the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria, and other microorganisms. It could also lead to an unpleasant odor that can linger around your residential area. Unfortunately, the infrared camera is quite expensive and requires a lot of skills and expertise to use it properly.

Fortunately, the SERVPRO technicians have all the experience and tools to remove water from your establishment. They can utilize the infrared camera with temperature sensing range to detect hidden water. They can scan the room with the camera to focus on a specific area like walls, ceilings, windows, toilets, and other closed areas. If they find a circular image that is a different color from the area surrounding it, then that is an indication of potential water invasion. The evaporation process can show the different temperature to allow the SERVPRO technician to identify hidden water. As soon as they notice the evidence of a leak, they can use a moisture meter to confirm the extra water in a particular location. This technology can help identify water damage in its earliest stage before it becomes a bigger problem. The tech can repair this damage by placing an insulated cover over the wet area. With all the right tools and expertise, you know that you are in good hands with these experts.

If you're interested in the state of the art technology for the water removal process, then give SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach a call at (850) 863-2552 for a consultation with our reliable technicians.

SERVPRO Says to Evacuate from the Path of Hurricane Michael, Secure Your Fort Walton Beach Property and Leave

Storm Damage SERVPRO Says to Evacuate from the Path of Hurricane Michael, Secure Your Fort Walton Beach Property and Leave Evacuate Now from Fort Walton Beach Before Hurricane Michael Comes Ashore--SERVPRO Says

What to Expect During Hurricane Michael in the Fort Walton/Destin Area

It is a common fact that hurricanes like Michael bring power outages. The intense winds can do damage to power lines and leave homes in the Fort Walton Beach area without electricity for lengthy periods of time, even more than a week. However, many people do not consider all of the damages and the problems they can create during a storm. Understanding the dangers and how to counter them with solutions is vital for weathering the storm safely.

Always remember that losing power often means losing water pressure and a potable drinking liquid. As Hurricane Michael approaches Fort Walton Beach, a possible Cat 4 storm at 140 MPH, make sure you have plenty of sources of water on hand. Buy bottled water, fill your bathtubs, and fill as many water containers you own at home as possible. Dehydration can be a factor. Make sure your vehicle is stocked as you must evacuate before this tropical storm hits landfall.
 
Similarly, remember that if you do not have power, other places most likely won't have power either. Make sure you are not low on any prescription medications you need to take. Ensure that you purchase all of your emergency supplies well before the storm begins.
 
This storm may bring storm surges as high as 13 feet; this can be devastating to the structure of your home or business. You must evacuate.
 
Make sure that you have all the emergency supplies like food, water, medications, clothing, and flashlights as you leave. Have a plan where you can spend the days needed until you can return to your home. The dangers are great, even during the travel path due to flooding, storms, fallen trees, and traffic jams. Don't wait or delay, leave now.
 
A hurricane is likely to do damage to the roof of your home and the siding. Make sure that the safe-place of your house is not in an attic space. Finding a space away from any glass windows is essential as violent winds can shatter them, and the glass can cause injury. An interior bedroom is often the safest place to wait out a storm inside. Of course, with the impending force of this hurricane, the above advice is for much smaller storms.

SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach is here to serve you after the storm has passed. We take pride in helping our neighbors and have support to assist you from our National Disaster Recovery Teams. Contact us, when you can at (850) 863-2552.

SERVPRO's Better And Faster Two Step Process For Removing Mold In Your Destin Home

9/26/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation SERVPRO's Better And Faster Two Step Process For Removing Mold In Your Destin Home Getting rid of mold is a two-step process involving remediation and restoration.

Remediation And Restoration Of Mold Damage In Destin

Getting rid of mold is a two-step process involving remediation and restoration. Remediation is what we do to remove the visible signs of damage and carry out preventative measures. It can be a complicated procedure which involves finding the source of mold, cleaning indoor air quality, removing non-salvageable materials and disinfecting the affected area. Once remediation is complete, we can begin restoration which focuses on returning your home to its preloss condition.

Signs of mold damage in Destin properties could include a strong, musty odor or visible colonies. Mold spores can only grow in areas where there is moisture, so it can be essential to check for structural or plumbing issues and fix them before remediation begins. When you call our emergency line, we ask a few questions to determine the type of equipment we need, the extent of damage and the type of personnel.

We have dealt with many properties with mold infestations, and few of them have been the same. However, despite the variety in size, type and extent of mold damage, SERVPRO has developed a general set of guidelines that is a proven success. On arrival, your technician conducts an inspection. Sometimes we may need to remove floorboards or sections of drywall to check for infections or hidden water sources.

Once a SERVPRO technician has completed an inspection, we can set up containment zones. Containment zones can be cordoned off using physical barriers like sealed plastic sheeting or negative air pressure. We do this to ensure mold spores cannot spread into unaffected areas of your home during the cleanup effort.

SERVPRO uses air filtration units with HEPA filters that are capable of removing microscopic spores from surrounding air. These can be placed in the affected area as cleaning work is carried out to reduce the likelihood of mold returning after the service or being spread around your home as work is carried out.

We can use an anti-fungal or anti-microbial cleaning treatment to remove mold colonies and prevent them returning. In cases where porous materials are deemed unsalvageable, we may have to remove insulation, drywall, carpets or curtains permanently. These are disposed of correctly in designated clean-rooms or taken with us after service.

We always work toward a restore over replace method. We can take special care of your contents using different cleaning techniques including mechanical cleaning for fabrics at a SERVPRO facility. Thoroughly deodorizing the affected areas after service is a priority for home-owners and we can carry out restoration of any carpets, drywall or re-painting to bring your home back to a preloss condition.

If your residential property is showing signs of mold, contact SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach at (850) 863-2552 for professional remediation and restoration.

Options for Destin Residents after a Mold Damage Experience

9/16/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Options for Destin Residents after a Mold Damage Experience Finding mold in your home is cause for alarm. Call SERVPRO right away to investigate, contain and remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Technicians Follow Standards and Guidelines When Remediating a Mold Infestation in Your Home 

Homes and commercial buildings with excess moisture and standing water are likely to experience mold damage. Indoor mold can cause health effects and cause damage to your property if you do not act quickly and ensure the right remediation procedures are in place. It is possible to smell or visually identify the mold once it has developed in your Destin home.
 
We use several methods to address mold damage problems in Destin, and we choose the techniques by looking at the extent of contamination and the type of items that need cleaning. The primary goal that our SERVPRO technicians have during this time is to fix the moisture problem, clean restorable materials and discard items which are contaminated beyond use. When we are cleaning the mold off hard surfaces, we can use detergents and water, and at the same time scrub using a stiff brush. After rinsing and drying the surface, we can finally use a disinfectant to sterilize any present bacteria and fungi to prevent chances of the problem recurring.
 
Our SERVPRO technicians observe safety precaution during the remediation process. For instance, we wear a disposable overall when entering a building with visible mold growth. We also use N-95 rated respirators or full-face respirators, rubber gloves, and safety boots. Usually, we follow the OSHA standards when choosing the PPE.
 
After removing the mold and cleaning the contaminated surfaces, it is vital to dry wet surfaces and items properly. Air conditioners, auxiliary electric heaters, dehumidifiers, and fans are some of the drying equipment that our SERVPRO technicians use. After drying, we can use penetrative/intrusive moisture meters to check whether we have achieved our drying goal since relying on sight or touch can be misleading. We presume wet materials are dry when their moisture content is less than 15%.
 
SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach offers both mold remediation and cleaning services that meet residential and commercial needs. Call us at (850) 863-2552 at any time of the day and give us a chance to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Steps to Recovery After Devastating Hurricane Damage in Fort Walton Beach

Storm Damage Steps to Recovery After Devastating Hurricane Damage in Fort Walton Beach SERVPRO Says Be Prepared for Storms and Hurricanes in the Fort Walton Beach Area of the Panhandle

Hurricanes Gordon and Distant Florence Are Reminders to Be Prepared for Tropical Storms and Seek SERVPRO for Cleanup and Restoration

While you might not have been prepared for the devastating damage that Hurricane Gordon could do to your Fort Walton Beach home or business, now that the storm has subsided, it is one of the only things on your mind. As you work towards what comes next, many homeowners and business owners struggle with the steps towards restoring their properties and getting things back to the way they were before.

There is an extensive list of steps that you should take towards getting your Fort Walton Beach property professionally restored and repaired to preloss conditions whenever possible. However, even before you sought out the services of our dedicated and experienced SERVPRO team, there are some considerations that you should make to both keep your family safe and to help speed up the restoration process.

The first of these considerations is what your home insurance provider expects of you at this time. While there were many homes and properties affected by this severe weather system, your insurance provider can give you direction and answers to your responsibilities as well as what they need to get the claims process started. In many cases, professional restoration work relies on insurance claims as opposed to demanding payment out of the owner’s pockets. SERVPRO works with you and your insurance adjuster always in your best interest.

Your insurance company might require you to provide some documentation of the damages that your home has sustained from the storm, and often you can do some of this on your own. Unless you are sure about the structural integrity and stability of your property, evidence and damage cataloging is often best left to trained professionals like our SERVPRO estimators. We get uniquely trained in safety precautions and equipment, helping to minimize conditions getting worse as well as knowing what insurance companies need regarding damage documentation.

To help preserve your possessions, even as we pump out the water and dry your home, we can perform a pack-out of some possessions to clean, dry, and preserve off-site. We have a meticulous system for safely packaging, documenting the contents with tags and barcodes, and then return them when your home is ready.

There are few things more unsettling than seeing your home or business after a hurricane has passed through the area. The effects of this storm can seem overwhelming to overcome, but with the experience and equipment of our SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach technicians, it can return to preloss condition, if at all possible. Give us a call 24/7 at (850) 863-2552.

Professional Mold Damage Remediation for Your Destin Hotel

8/30/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Professional Mold Damage Remediation for Your Destin Hotel Guests expect a great smelling, clean room which is free of mold. Should your hotel suffer from a mold infestation, contact SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians Understand How Quickly a Hotel Mold Infestation can Spread

Destin sits on the Florida panhandle, salt water and beaches in all directions. Our climate is hot and humidity is high, but the views are glorious, creating the perfect environment for visitors from around the country and world. Unfortunately, other wayfarers invade guest rooms and common areas -- mold spores that grow into full-blown colonies with a little moisture. Our skilled technicians and specialized equipment are on your side as you evict these unwanted stowaways.

Your goal is to offer comfortable lodgings for your guests to enjoy the local ambiance. Destin commercial mold damage makes your hotel feel, look, and smell uninviting, and the presence of mold growth can be a violation of health regulations. Mold abatement is necessary to bring your facility into compliance. Your housekeeping staff does not have the specific skills, tools, and products our mold remediation crews have available.

Liquid diluted bleach mixtures are often the choice of cleaning staff to rid surfaces of mold. SERVPRO technicians avoid this approach as it frequently does no more than fade the mold staining. The bleach often does not reach far enough into a contaminated material to get at all the fungi while the water mixed into the bleach fuels additional mold growth.

SERVPRO uses a multi-step protocol developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to remediate a mold damage scenario:

Locate the mold.

Contain the moldy area for safety and to prevent the spread of spores and debris with physical barriers and often a negative pressure air scrubbing system.

Remove the mold by mechanical means -- scraping, brushing, wiping, and advanced technology like soda blasting.

Clean up all debris with HEPA filtered vacuums.

Treat the affected areas with EPA registered antimicrobials.

To avoid mold damage after remediation,  managing moisture is essential. When water or even high humidity persists on or near organic surfaces (wood, fabric, drywall, insulation, and more) for 24 to 48 hours, mold damage is possible. Stress to your employees that immediate cleanup and drying of all water events, large or small, is essential to limit the chance of mold damage.

SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach has the products, equipment, and highly-qualified technicians to remediate mold damage in your seaside hotel. Call us at (850) 863-2552 to schedule an evaluation.

Stains To Deterioration - Mold Damage In Destin Homes Affect Walls And Ceilings

8/2/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Stains To Deterioration - Mold Damage In Destin Homes Affect Walls And Ceilings When homeowners discover their Destin property contains mold damage, a quick call to SERVPRO can make things right again.

Mold Damage In Your Home

Homes and apartments in the Destin area range from full-time residences to seasonal getaways. During unoccupied periods, microbes can create a lot of damage inside a home or other dwelling.

When homeowners discover their Destin property contains mold damage and other microbial activity, a quick call to SERVPRO can make things right again. Our trained technicians know how to save our customers money wherever possible by only replacing irreparable materials and always restoring anything else. We can do this because mold damage happens in different degrees of severity.

The walls and ceilings inside your home contain significant amounts of cellulose. Other organic matter from the daily activities in your home can also provide a large number of consumable materials for microbes. While mold grows on the flat surfaces of your interior architecture, these microorganisms eat away at the surfaces underneath them.

Caught early, your walls and ceilings might only suffer stains. At SERVPRO, we can get these stains removed or covered up with a primer coat of microbial-repellent paint. Left alone, mold damage can escalate so severely that these same walls can become much worse. With time, they can begin falling apart, crumbling in spots or collapsing from their own weight.

Falling in, as in the case with ceilings, can happen when water leaks in across the top of the ceiling and gradually softens the drywall, as well as allowing mold to grow out of control. When water evaporates steadily, this situation often involves only sections of the ceiling instead of a more extensive section. However, either can prove dangerous and cause a significant amount of injuries to anyone in the area when the ceiling collapses.

Living in a home with these problems can cause health effects, as well, due to the high content of mold spores often found in the air. Because of this risk, SERVPRO technicians always clean the air with HEPA-filter air scrubbers as we remediate the damage. When we finish, not only do the homes we work on look “Like it never even happened.” but the home is once again a healthy place to live in once more.

We want the families around Mary Ester, Eglin, and Hulbert to live in beautiful homes that also pose no health risks to the occupants. Call SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach's 24-hour service line at (850) 863-2552, and we can start the necessary mold damage remediation your home deserves.

Grilling too Close to Exterior Walls can Lead to Fire Damage to Your Mary Ester Home

7/23/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Grilling too Close to Exterior Walls can Lead to Fire Damage to Your Mary Ester Home Fires can start in many places which seem controlled, such as your grill. Should your house be facing damage after a fire, contact SERVPRO right away.

Certified SERVPRO Technicians Assess the Fire Damage and Work Towards the Goal of Restoration

Summer means many families cook outdoors at home, preparing meals on the grill, and spend time enjoying fresh air and sunshine. Sometimes, the way a Mary Ester home's exterior is laid out can make grilling and barbecuing difficult. Lack of space is often a culprit.
 
Getting your grill too close to your residence can cause fire damage in Mary Ester to both the exterior and the interior of your house. While requirements regarding insulation often dictate a non-flammable state, this can change over time. A grill placed too close is only one way a fire can occur in your home, also.
 
Regardless of how a fire starts inside your home, SRPRO can help mitigate the damage caused. We know how to re-establish livable conditions in your home again, just “Like it never even happened.” Fire damage can create many changes inside your home's undamaged areas, as well, but we always make sure we resolve these issues, also. Odor, water left behind from fighting the fire, bubbled paint from over-heated areas that did not catch on fire are some examples.
 
Because our team members work so well together, we resolve all of these problems quickly. We want to help get your family back home, or if you did not need to leave and reside elsewhere, to have the entirety of your home back to normal.
 
When families can stay in a home after a fire, the damaged area must remain unoccupied for both safety reasons and to allow our employees the space needed to complete the job. When a family must vacate their home, stress and significant inconveniences become an aspect of life that we know can create severe hardships.
 
Once our work ends, we walk through each area we worked in and explain the results to you. We are always available to answer questions, but we understand each stage, including the completion of our work, is unique to our customers. Questions are still welcome because we want to make sure you know what we need to do to restore everything wholly and safely.
 
SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach is always here at (850) 863-2552 to take your call. We serve Fort Walton Beach and Destin and many more area residents for the restoration of their homes after fire damage and other crises.

Remediating Commercial Fire Damage In Destin

Commercial Remediating Commercial Fire Damage In Destin Smoke & Fire Removal and Cleanup in Destin Retail Shops Is Crucial--Call SERVPRO

Smoke Odors Can Be Detrimental to Retail Shops After a Fire

Destin homes and businesses both deal with the aftereffects of fire. For a business, however, it can result in the loss of income for every employee. Unless their insurance is robust, businesses lose the money needed to make repairs as well.

Some types of commercial fire damage are common to Destin businesses. Certain specialty businesses like wine shops have very specific needs when it comes to their customer sales and what is important for restoration. SERVPRO restoration crews work with every business owner to meet those needs. For example, while every business demands a clean, safe environment, a wine bar or wine shop with a tasting room needs complete odor elimination. Any lingering malodors can ruin the experience for individuals and special events.
 
The immediate action our technicians take is to remove debris and property too damaged for restoration. That eliminates the source for most malodors, and usually the strongest ones. As team members remove the damaged items, others set up fans within the facility to increase air circulation. They also use axial fans to draw air inside the building and force it outside. Air scrubbers with small 0.3 micron HEPA filtering systems can capture airborne particulates contributing to the odors.
 
Next, a SERVPRO inspector examines property not physically damaged by the fire such as ceiling tiles, paneling, and carpets. While not scorched, each type of item can absorb a massive amount of odor residues. The inspection determines what methods are needed to clean the structural property and which cleaning agents and tools to use.
 
For most property, spraying or wiping down the surfaces with a deodorizing agent cleans off the residues and removes the malodors. For mild odors that resist removal, our team can cover walls and ceilings with a paint that contains a very effective sealing agent.
 
If an inspection cannot identify the source of them, technicians use a cloud of deodorizing particles. This method uses the cloud or fog of deodorizing agents and one or more fans to recreate how the smoke moved throughout the facility. The agent attaches itself to the same surfaces the smoke contaminated and neutralizes the malodors.
 
If you have lingering odors after a fire, contact SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach at (850) 863-2552. We are here to help you reopen your doors to customers as soon as possible.

Storm-Induced Damage in Destin? Call SERVPRO for Fast Cleanup and Restoration

While residents of Destin might not be a stranger to weather systems significant enough to cause substantial flooding through the area, many homes find themselves ill-prepared for this possibility when it happens. Storms passing through can create the kind of damage to allow water into your home through the siding and the roof.

Most Destin homeowners regarding storm damage do not even realize that their houses are susceptible to these disastrous conditions until the water begins flowing into the lower levels of their home unabated. While this situation is challenging enough for just block and concrete construction, when a large limb falls through the roof in a severe tropical storm, the damages and problems are exacerbated.

Our team of SERVPRO technicians is always available to handle emergency calls and works quickly to limit the damage that your home experiences from this natural disaster. From the moment that we arrive at your house, we locate the source of the flooding through the roof, and if possible, we can cover the exposed area with a tarp. Keeping out addition stormwater reduces further water damage and cuts down the service time to dry out your structure. A general contractor can repair the roof when the time is appropriate.

Our technicians can focus on removing any sagging ceilings caused by water intrusion through the attic for safety as well as drying reasons, and discard any soaked insulation as we set up dehumidification equipment.

Flood cuts are often a necessary approach to reach wall cavities and to remove overly saturated portions of drywall used in the finishing process for your lower level. By eliminating several inches to several feet of the material from the floors, our SERVPRO professionals can better extract and dry the areas affected by the pooled water. A thorough drying ensures that no lingering moisture gets left to cause secondary water damages unseen in the walls or underneath the flooring. Persistent moisture combined with the average warmth of a residence is a breeding ground for mold growth.

Flooding in your home is often something that you do not have the time to plan for and prevent. With all of the contents and construction materials in your living space, contacting professional restoration services can help you to keep the damage as minimal as possible. You can trust in our SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach restoration specialists to help you clean up the mess and quickly return your home to preloss conditions, "Like it never even happened." Give us a call 24/7 at (850) 863-2552.

Why Conventional Cleaning Does Not Remove Your Niceville Mold Problem

Mold Remediation Why Conventional Cleaning Does Not Remove Your Niceville Mold Problem The discovery of mold growing in your Niceville home is never an easy thing to see.

Conventional Cleaning Does Not Remove Your Mold Problem

The discovery of mold growing in your Niceville home is never an easy thing to see. From the moment that you recognize what is happening, you might not even know what the next step to take is. Many owners mistakenly believe that they can handle a fungal growth like this on their own. There are several reasons to attest as to why this is not the case.

While you certainly want to handle mold damage in your Niceville residence as quickly as possible, handling this situation on your own is rarely an option. Most conventional cleaning methods only ever affect the top layer of the surface you are scrubbing, leaving any more deeply seated organism free to continue growing once the cleaning has stopped.

Our SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians undergo extensive training on mold and microbial growth. We can identify the type of mold that is growing in your home and the best ways to remove it and restore the damage it has caused. Our technicians get certified in their ability to contend with the harmful and sometimes hazardous conditions mold presents in a standard set in place by the IICRC.

With the potential health effects that can get attributed now to exposure to mold colonies in your home or business, you want to make sure that the removal of this intruder happens quickly and thoroughly. As stated above, conventional cleaning methods are often ineffective against a thriving mold colony, and a more concentrated effort is necessary.

Our SERVPRO technicians have the equipment and expertise to learn the farthest and deepest reaches of the colony and to work to remove the entire organism with our efforts. From sanding to soda blasting, penetrative approaches ensure that the entire hyphae feel the effects of our remediation efforts.

You might not be ready for finding mold in your house, but you can know whom to call when it happens. Our SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach mold remediation specialists can help you to remove the thriving colony and work to prevent future recurrences. Call SERVPRO anytime at (850) 863-2552.

Once this reconstruction gets completed, our professionals can work to start removing the lingering harmful effects of the fire such as the soot and smoke damages.

Smoke damage is one of the most difficult to remove from your home because it often takes the form of a noxious odor that spreads throughout the affected areas of your residence.

When Water Damage Moves Beyond the Stained-Ceiling Stage in Your Destin Home

5/22/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage When Water Damage Moves Beyond the Stained-Ceiling Stage in Your Destin Home SERVPRO Says that Water Stains in Destin Homes Indicate Damage

Water Stains Can Indicate Hidden Water Problems in Your Home--Call SERVPRO

Water is everywhere around us, but when this life-giving liquid exists in our Destin homes, we expect it to remain where it cannot do any harm. Sometimes it escapes and makes its presence known but in seemingly minor ways.
 
Other times, however, your property seems to develop not only visible and unsightly water damage but also the kind that ruins the interior of your home. What many homeowners in Destin never realize about water damage can end up costing them quite a bit of money.
 
Any type of water leakage, regardless of how slight it seems, means that water exists inside your home in places where it should not. Stains may not seem like severe damage, but they often indicate precisely that. The moisture creating stains on upper walls and ceilings did not appear there like magic. This moisture traveled there to these locations from other areas of your home.
 
As it traveled through the materials comprising your home, it affected them. Because this often happens within areas that you rarely or never see, it stays hidden and unknown to you. Significant water damage typically can happen months before stained ceilings show up in your home's interior. A side effect of this intrusive water, possibly from a leaky toilet, a loose shingle, or even a window left open during a rainstorm, often includes stains on upper areas of rooms and possibly wavy or blistering paint.
 
SERVPRO technicians can help determine the pathways the water took and examine the materials from Point A to Point B for damage. Many facets of your home can become compromised, damaged, or worse by causing other types of damage to start developing in your home. Microbial populations can proliferate once water becomes available to them. Who wants mold growing in their home? Drywall and sheetrock can begin to crumble.
 
Wherever damaging effects occur, we can skillfully mitigate the problem and make your home "Like it never even happened." quickly. We also ensure that the source of water is fixed and cannot create future damage that you must deal with later. In the case of major leaks or drips, we advise the homeowner to call a certified plumber.
 
SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach can help you whenever you find water damage and its telltale stains. Call us at (850) 863-2552 to reach our 24-hour helpline and get to the bottom of what ails your home.

Storms are a Common Cause of Flood Damage in Destin

5/7/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Storms are a Common Cause of Flood Damage in Destin Finding that your home was flooded can cause some panic. Call SERVPRO right away for drying out services.

SERVPRO Technicians Arrive Quickly to Dry Out Your Flooded Property

One of the general causes of flood damage in Florida homes is seasonal tropical storms. Due to the unique geographical location of the state on the Atlantic ocean, storms can sweep in from the waters and bring intense rain, strong winds, and flooding. The rainwater from the storms can get inside of your home in a variety of ways. Debris can break a window, intense wind can force open an entrance, or an open window can allow gallons and gallons of water into your property. When it comes to flooding inside of your home, it is wise to seek professional help immediately.
 
As soon as we get your call, we can dispatch an estimator to your home to inspect the flood damage in Destin. The estimator can get a general idea of what our techs need to handle while they make their way to your home. We strive to keep you well informed and involved in every step of the remediation process. The estimator can listen to your concerns about your belongings and what is a high priority for you.
 
When our SERVPRO techs arrive on the scene, they can begin to extract the flood water as quickly as possible. We use industrial-grade wet/dry vacuums and pumps to remove the water from your home. Using these devices allow our techs to remove the water fast, which is essential because stagnant water can cause damage to the structure of your home and open the doorway to further problems such as mold.
 
Some floods can bring chemicals and bacteria into the house with the water, but not always. In many cases, the flood can merely carry in dirt, sand, and debris. Our SERVPRO technicians can send your valuable belongings to our cleaning headquarters to rid them of dirty stains caused by the floods. Afterward, SERVPRO can check the moisture levels of your home and then dry out areas in need of service.
 
If seasonal storms leave your home flooded with water, do not delay. Contact SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach at (850) 863-2552. We strive to arrive and return your home to its pre-flood condition quickly.

When Mold Grows in Your Destin Home, Trust Professional Remediators to Safely Remove it

4/29/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation When Mold Grows in Your Destin Home, Trust Professional Remediators to Safely Remove it Mold can spread quickly and is very unsightly. Contact SERVPRO right away after you see or smell mold in your home.

SERVPRO Technicians Understand the Science Behind the Prevention of Mold

Severe weather systems rolling in from the coast and a constant humidity are two ever-present battles that Destin homeowners are asked to endure for their little slice of paradise. Of course, the trouble with these specific issues is the damage that they can cause to a house when they have a chance. Severe weather has a nasty habit of causing flooding for residents in the area, and if improperly cleaned up and not thoroughly dried, your home could be at risk for fungal growth.
 
Unfortunately, the high levels of humidity (if not maintained adequately within your home) could also result in mold damages in Destin. When moisture is present in the environment, naturally occurring mold spores only require warmer temperatures and an organic surface to seat and form colonies. With this ease that mold can grow in your home, it is not a surprise that so many in the area struggle with the presence of varieties of mold growing in their residence.
 
When our SERVPRO team arrives at your home, we get to work quickly on sectioning off the area of your house where the mold actively grows and thrives. This isolation gets best accomplished with the use of negative air chambers or air scrubbers with HEPA filters. This level of protection can help to limit the spread of active mold spores through the efforts to remove the colonies are underway.
 
Sanding and spraying the surfaces with a chemical intended to penetrate through the porous materials (like the wood framing of your home) often is the most effective means of removing the mold colonies. This process is not always successful, as the mold can be too deep in the material for remediation efforts for our SERVPRO technicians to reach them entirely. In these unfortunate circumstances, construction materials and structural components need to get removed and replaced with new materials for the remediation process to complete.
 
While this is only a small piece of the overall mold remediation process, it can show the level of dedication and expertise that you can expect from SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach. Our mold remediation specialists are available 24/7 to help you through any circumstance you might face just by calling (850) 863-2552.

Crucial Water Removal Services Help Restore Your Destin Home After a Fire

Fire Damage Crucial Water Removal Services Help Restore Your Destin Home After a Fire Water removal services are needed after fire damage

How water can affect your home after a fire

Restoring your home after a fire happens in your Destin residence involves a variety of crucial steps and procedures. Without the implementation of these steps, your home can suffer additional and unexpected damage months after the completion of restoration efforts.

One step that might seem counter-intuitive in restoring a Destin area home after a fire includes water removal services. However, removing the thousands of gallons the fire department used to extinguish the fire that attempted to destroy your home must happen or your home's future includes water damage as well as the destruction caused by the fire's heat, smoke, and flames. Removing it prevents both water and mold from creating more problems. It also helps keep restoration work from becoming an expensive but futile exercise.

At SERVPRO, we use a diverse array of equipment that can remove standing water, moisture hidden in absorbent materials, and humidity from the air. Because of the heat involved in a house fire, much of the water sprayed into your home by firefighters often does not remain a liquid but evaporates into steam. A significant portion of this steam remains in the air, with a considerable amount condensing on surfaces. When those surfaces can absorb the moisture, they do so quite readily, and then retain it, leading to mold problems, rusting of nearby metal pieces, and water stains and damage.

We understand that you want your home restored to preloss condition after a catastrophe such as a house fire, as quickly as possible. Even though the firefighters' water often remains invisible instead of making itself known as the charred materials, smokey smells, and soot-covered belongings do, we aggressively remove it from your home.

Without water removal services, homes that sustained fire damage and then allowed to 'dry out naturally' often harbor mold colonies only a few weeks afterward. Water damage also accrues steadily over time, and left-behind water can quickly damage freshly painted areas with both stains and bubbling, warp wood components, and disintegrate fresh glue in flooring. Restoring your home's natural levels of humidity prevents these problems.

Hand-held units efficiently extract water from floors while the overall humidity in your home quickly decreases once we begin running our desiccant machines. Air movers also help when walls and ceilings, undamaged by the fire, hold water that may have entered via vents in the walls or through charred areas that created holes. Dehumidifiers help in areas experiencing lower amounts of humidity in the air, such as attached garages and sunrooms or other areas of the home that did not sustain damage during the fire.

After a fire affects your home, call SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach at (850) 863-2552. We ensure that every step of the restoration process, including water removal, brings your home closer to its preloss state.

Faulty Appliances Can Offer Water Damage to Your Destin House

4/15/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Faulty Appliances Can Offer Water Damage to Your Destin House Often when an appliance causes your home to flood, extraction is a necessary step to the water damage restoration process.

SERVPRO is Here to Help When Failing Appliances Cause Water Damage to Your Home

Your Destin home might have most of the luxuries that many feel that a home needs for comfortable living. The trouble with these implements designed to make your life easier is that you cannot always account for when things start to go wrong with them. Appliances are essential for this comfortable living, but they do not get designed or built to last forever.

While you might not consider that appliances are all that likely to cause water damage to your Destin residence, you could get surprised to learn just how typical it is for these machines to ultimately malfunction and allow significant volumes of water to pour out onto your floor. Washing machines and dishwashers get connected to a direct line of water, and when these machines fail to function correctly, they can continue to fill indefinitely until you manually shut down the supply line valve.

Water damage itself can cause various effects to your home, so taking care of the problem correctly and quickly is essential for less out of pocket expenses and lengthy repairs. Our SERVPRO professionals get specially trained to handle all manner of water emergencies and have the tools and expertise to handle whatever damages you face to help prevent compounding conditions or the need for large-scale reconstruction.

From the moment that our team arrives at your home, we assess the damage that you face and begin putting together a unique approach to resolving the present issues and restoring the area. In many cases involving failing appliances, some water extraction is necessary, and this gets accomplished through the use of wet vacs. Drying the area involves air movers and dehumidification equipment, but it might also involve our large drying mats to penetrate underneath flooring material to ensure the area gets thoroughly dried.

You should never sit around and wait for water damage to resolve itself, as waiting around opens the door for other types of disasters like mold growth. Instead, choose the trusted SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach team to help you clean up the mess and restore the damage that you are facing quickly and efficiently. Give us a call 24/7 at (850) 863-2552.

When Severe Storms Cause Flooding In Your Destin Residence

Storm Damage When Severe Storms Cause Flooding In Your Destin Residence SERVPRO Swiftly Extracts Flooded Water from Destin Properties

Call SERVPRO Fast to Keep Storm Damages to a Minimum

A raging storm might seem potentially problematic enough as it is, considering elements like hail and high winds that can significantly impact the structural integrity of the exterior of your Destin home. The truth is, it is often the least expected culprits that tend to do the most substantial damage. A good example is falling tree limbs (or uprooted trees in general) that gash holes into the siding and through interior walls, or collapse portions of a roof, presenting large holes which allow rainwater from the severe storm to quickly access the interior of your house.
 
From the moment that a disaster like this strikes your Destin home, it is now susceptible to flood damage. If the severe storm that impacted the tree to fall into your house continues for some time, it can allow untold amounts of rainwater to access the affected area of your home through the newly formed wound. While you might not have the experience to handle a situation like this and to restore the current damages to preloss conditions, our experienced SERVPRO technicians do.
 
When we get dispatched to your home (either amid the storm or after) our immediate priority is the same: we have to seal up the exterior damage to your home that became the source of the floodwater. Often this is simple enough to do in a fundamental sense, as we can board up or tarp over holes to keep elemental damages from getting worse while the restoration process is underway. However, this is a stop-gap measure if it is not too extensively damaged. A construction company should be called in for permanent fixing of breaches to the structure.
 
Once this process has gotten completed, our SERVPRO restoration specialists can implement our extraction equipment to pull the high volumes of water from the floors and surfaces of this area of your home. Wet-vacs with extraction wands typically get used in these situations as they are small enough to reach into smaller crevices and have the power to pull up the liquid quickly.
 
It is nice to think of SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach as neighborhood professionals that can help you to restore your home in the event of storm damage and flooding. Our team has the training and experience to repair and restore the damage to your home quickly and professionally. Give us a call today at (850) 863-2552.

Mold Damage Specialists in Destin

3/11/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Damage Specialists in Destin When you find mold in your home, call SERVPRO to identify the source of the infestation and then effectively remediate.

Remediating a Mold Infestation Requires Understanding How Mold Spreads

Sometimes a slow water leak occurs inside your Destin townhome, and it goes unnoticed for a long time. Anytime moistures sit indoors it is possible that mold growth occurs. Having a fungus exist inside your home can ruin contents or building materials and cause foul odors to exist inside your townhouse.
 
Whenever water gets inside a structure, the chance of mold growth is possible. If you ever notice water from a slow leak that has been sitting in a place inside your townhome, it is smart to call SERVPRO's mold damage experts in Destin. As soon as mold gets noticed, it is essential to get the situation remediated by professionals so that spores do not spread and cause fungi to grow in other parts of the building.
 
All types of mold start as spores. Spores are tiny, microscopic seeds that easily become airborne. Spores travel through the air until they find a place to settle. Once the spores settle, they sit idle waiting for the perfect conditions to grow into a fungus.
 
Many times spores do not grow right away, and they sit dormant until the conditions are ideal for them to develop. When moisture enters a location, spores swell up as they absorb water. Eventually, spores grow a network of structures called hyphae. Some hyphae grow under the surface where the spores sit, others spread out onto the surfaces, and some hyphae grow straight up and produce more spores.
 
For mold to develop it typically needs three things: a food source, water, and the correct temperature. Fungi typically form when the temperature of the area is between 68 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. A fungus also needs a source of moisture and an organic type of food such as wood or paper.
 
Once a mold forms inside a dwelling, it can cause health effects. Molds produce two types of chemical compounds that affect humans. Microbial volatile organic compounds or mVOCs are what gives fungi an unpleasant odor. Myotoxins are the substances created by mold that possibly affect the health of some people.
 
Mold damage is always a situation that everyone should take seriously. Whenever you think there is the smallest chance of fungi infesting your building, call SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach at (850) 863-2552 for assistance any time of day, every day of the week.

Commercial Water Removal can Save Your Destin Bakery

2/25/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Commercial Water Removal can Save Your Destin Bakery Bakeries and other places where food is made need to be dry and clean at all times. Should your business have a water damage incident, call SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians Arrive Quickly to Dry Out Your Water Damaged Business

Destin locals love baked goods, especially when they come fresh out of the bakery that made them. A broken water line to your facility's ice maker can lead to standing water in your kitchen, though, causing not only an immediate slip and fall hazard for your employees and customers but also an unexpected risk of damage caused by water and microbial activity.
 
Bakeries and other food-producing businesses can rely on SERVPRO's commercial water removal experts in Destin to help remove any remaining after the initial cleanup efforts and prevent a multitude of expensive problems from developing. When we arrive, our initial assessment helps determine which methods we should use.
 
For vast amounts of water, such as experienced when a water line breaks and goes undetected for several hours, we use pumps mounted on large trucks. These units come equipped with submersible pumps that can remove any amount of water quite rapidly. After we remove standing water or for smaller emergencies, we use portable pumps, operated by hand, to extract water from small nooks and crannies. Removing the water can still leave your bakery damp. Heat and increased air circulation increase the rate of evaporation.
 
However, to capture the moisture in the air before it can lead to high humidity, which we know can affect the quality of your baked goodies, we set up dehumidifiers. For sizable jobs, a desiccant machine might work more efficiently and serve your needs better. Wherever foodstuffs come into contact with the water, we clean and remove the damaged inventory. We can help with insurance claims by providing third-party inventory lists to you. These can also aid you in replacing the correct amounts, so your bakery's downtime remains even more manageable.
 
The professional team members at SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach earn their various certifications from the IICRC, ensuring our communities' businesses of quality work when emergencies calling for water removal arise. If your bakery in Mary Ester, Okaloosa Island, or nearby location needs our services for this or other emergencies, call us at (850) 863-2552.

Improper Gutter Maintenance Of Your Destin Residence Can Result In Flood Damage

2/15/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Improper Gutter Maintenance Of Your Destin Residence Can Result In Flood Damage When your gutters get jammed full of debris, leaves, and grime, its ability to move water away from your house gets dramatically compromised.

Improper Gutter Maintenance Can Cause Flood Damage

Your Destin home requires a lot of your attention and maintenance to perform the primary job that it has with keeping outside elements from entering inside. While this doesn't seem like a challenging task for a structurally sound home to achieve, when all of its preventative measures to divert storm damage do not get appropriately maintained, their failure to perform can result in a water emergency for your Destin home.

Such is the case with your gutter system which outlines the edges of your roof. When this diversion equipment gets jammed full of debris, leaves, and grime, its ability to move water away from your house gets dramatically compromised. Instead of moving water away from your siding and the ground around the foundation of your home, water pools up in the gutter and pours over the sides, overly saturating this area potentially to the point of flood damage to your Destin home.

When a severe weather event rolls through the area and leaves several inches of rain that cannot get diverted away from your home’s foundation, the overly saturated ground around your house can become highly pressurized and force its way through weakening points in the blockwork of your lowest level or basement. Once water has a point of access, this vulnerable point gets worse and worse the more water that is allowed to pass through.

Our SERVPRO team can not only help to resolve and restore the flood damage that resulted from an event like this but also aids in pinpointing the penetration areas and vulnerable regions of the foundation of your house. Our experienced technicians can seal up these points to keep similar traumatic incidents from happening again in the future. With our tools and expertise, the experienced restoration specialists we employ can restore your current flood damage to preloss conditions and offer peace of mind against what the future might have held without foundation repairs.

We do not just claim to be “Faster to Any Size Disaster.” It is an assurance that we can respond quickly to help you set things right when you need us the most. Our SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach team of restoration specialists is available 24/7 by calling (850) 863-2552.

Water Damage Speed, Training, and the Right Equipment Critical to Restoring Water Damage in Fort Walton Beach If water damage is not remediated quickly, mold colonies can begin to form.

SERVPRO Focuses on Restoration over Replacement

Unlike some other cleanup tasks, responding to water incursion damage in Fort Walton Beach cannot wait. The harm done to structural materials, fixtures, and contents begins immediately after water intrudes and is progressive, worsening with the passage of time. Partnering with a reputable water damage restoration company is the key to returning your home to preloss condition.

Professional water damage restoration for your Fort Walton Beach home aids the property owner in several meaningful ways. Extraction of large amounts of water needs heavy duty equipment and technicians experiences with its use. Issues of water contamination when the source is flooding or sewage backup requires expert assessment and proper disposal if indicated. Our crews have Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training, ensuring water damage management over many kinds of situations meets industry standards.

Water left to soak the wooden framing and flooring of most homes deteriorates these essential supporting building components. Swelling and warping occur if water is not removed fast. Drywall and ceiling tiles crumble when saturated, necessitating swift drying. Mold damage is a risk if the moisture is not removed within 48 hours. SERVPRO technicians use their coursework and experience to measure moisture levels, find hidden pockets of water, and remediate both quickly. Drying targets are calculated, and our crews position air movers and dehumidifiers to pull water vapor out of structures and fixtures. Monitoring of moisture reduction is continued throughout the process.

A layperson may believe that soaked materials must be torn out and replaced. SERVPRO focuses on restoration, using strategies learned in IICRC classes to dry out a broad range of items efficiently for use again. Hiring our crews can save money over the long run by placing structures and contents back in service for you. Expensive carpeting and irreplaceable hardwood floors respond well when skilled workers employ the proper techniques. Walls and ceilings dry and look “Like it never even happened.” when the response is speedy and the tools used are well-matched to the problem.

Even water damaged documents and pictures are restorable through resources available to SERVPRO. Advanced methods such as lyophilization, or freeze drying, remove water vapor without further damage to the paper. Your most treasured heirlooms and important papers have new life after our treatments.

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree how lovely are thy branches. Christmas trees bring lights, joy and happiness into our homes during the holiday season, however they also bring risk of fires that could damage your home!

According to the American Christmas Tree Association (ACTA) Christmas trees alone result in $13 million in property damage each year.  We at SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach want to give you some tips on keeping your holiday safe and to be fire free.  

  1. CHOOSE FRESH OVER A CHEAP DRY TREE.The fresher the tree, the less likely it will pose a fire hard.  Look for flexible needles that don't break, and a trunk that has sap.
  2. KEEP THE WATER COMING. The tree stand should contain a continuous source of water and be sturdy enough to resist toppling over by children or pets.
  3. DON'T  OVERLOAD THE CORD.  Attach only 3 maximum strings of lights to anyone extension cord, then place cords along wall to prevent a tripping hazard.  Never run them under rugs or carpet.
  4. TREES DON'T NEED WARMTH.  Keep trees away from heat sources such as fireplaces, candles and even TV's.
  5. NOT ANY LIGHTS WILL DO.  Use low energy, safe lighting that's been certified by a safety testing lab.  Don't use damaged or frayed cords.
  6. UNPLUG LIGHTS.  Never leave the lights on over night or while you are not at home.
  7. DON'T KEEP A DRY TREE AROUND.  Dispose of it at this point properly.
  8. ARTIFICIAL TREE SAFETY AWARENESS.  Artificial trees should be flame resistant and have a seal of approval from a safety testing lab if the tree contains a built in lighting.
  9. DEATH BY ARTIFICIAL TREE. If the tree is metal, never use electric lights, as they can charge the tree and lead to electrocution.
  10. KEEP A FIRE EXTINGUISHER NEARBY.  Make sure that you have a fire extinguisher and everyone knows where it is located and how to use it.

SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach wishes you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  BE SAFE!  Remember we are here for you 24/7/365. 

FIRE SAFETY TIPS FOR THE HOLIDAYS!!

FIRE SAFETY TIPS FOR THE HOLIDAYS!!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner!!  This is the time of the year FOOD is one of the main focus’s -  The delicious turkey, dressing, sweet potato casserole, carnberries and the list goes on!  And what does that mean?? Lots of things going on in the kitchen and lots of people all helping out.  You may not realize that everyone’s favorite eating holiday Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires!  That is according to the US Fire Administration (USFA), a division of the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA)

 SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach has some fire safety tips for you and your loved ones this holiday season.

KEEP THE CHAOS OUR OF THE KITCHEN

Holiday meal preparation can be hectic, especially once guests begin to arrive.  For everyone’s safety, insist that all non-food-related activity happens outside of the kitchen.  Fewer people in the kitchen means fewer chances for a kitchen fire during holiday cooking.

NEVER LEAVE THE STOVE UNATTENDED

Stand by your pan! If you have to leave, turn the burner off. Make sure that all the handles are facing towards the middle of the stove, where no one can bump into them. 

DRESS FOR SAFETY

When you’re in the kitchen, how you dress can be critical.  Wear short or tight-fitting sleeves, and tie back long hair.  Loose clothing and long hair can catch fire when you least expect it, causing severe burns and spreading the fire to the rest of the kitchen.

BE READY TO PUT OUT A COOKING FIRE

The most effective way to put out a cooking fire is to smother it.  Keep a tight-fitting lid and potholder within reach anytime you use the stove so you can smother any flames that ignite inside a frying pan or saucepan.  Keep a working fire extinguisher handy for fires that start outside a cooking pot or pan.  Remember to aim the extinguisher at the base of the flame, not at the flames themselves.

IF YOU CANNOT GET A COOKIING FIRE UNDER CONTROL QUICKLY, EVACUATE THE HOUSE AND CALL 911.

SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach 850-863-2552 wants to wish you and your family a very Happy and SAFE holiday season!!

"I Think I Have Mold"

10/23/2017 (Permalink)

“I THINK I HAVE MOLD.” IS A COMMON PHONE CALL THAT WE GET HERE IN THE PANHANDLE OF FLORIDA. 

FLORIDA WOULDN’T BE FLORIDA WITH OUT HIGH HUMIDITY AND THAT IS WHY WE SEEM TO HAVE MORE PROBLEMS WITH MOLD THAN THE OTHER HOMEOWNER IN OTHER STATES.

UNDERSTANDING MOLD

Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.  Mold spores are microscopic, floating along in the air and may enter your home through a window, door or AC/heating systems.  They can even catch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.  Mold spores thrive on moisture and can start growing within 72 hours.   Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water or high humidity. Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to mold problem areas.  These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.   Try to keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.   

 HERE ARE SOME OF THE MOST FREQUENT WAYS THAT MOLD ACTUALLY BECOMES A PROBLEM IN A HOUSE OR YOUR PLACE OF BUSINESS:

  • Roof damage from aged roofing materials or a strong storm
  • Leaking pipes or sewer back-ups
  • Household equipment overflowing such as a dishwasher, washing machine or water heater
  • AC units blowing too much humidity
  • Condensation on cold surfaces
  • Heavy rain or flooding from severe storms or cresting of rivers and/or a storm surge
  • Damp crawl spaces or basements

If you have any reason to think you have a mold problem or have water damage of any kind please  give us a call at SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach 850-863-2552.  Our highly trained technicians are here for you 24/7/365. We will make it “Like it never even happened.”

Some Myths about Mold

10/23/2017 (Permalink)

A FEW MYTHS ABOUT MOLD THAT EVERYONE THINKS ARE TRUE!

When it comes to mold there is a lot of misinformation floating around out there.  The mention of the word “MOLD” people will start to panic.  In reality, mold can be a serious problem, but with a little common sense and the right information, you can learn what is truth and what is myth when dealing with mold.

HERE ARE A FEW MYTHS ABOUT MOLD

  • ALL MOLD IS BAD – NOPE!! Do you like blue cheese? Or have you ever given taken penicillin?  Mold is used in making cheese and medicine.
  • BLEACH KILLS MOLD – This is half truth. Bleach may kill certain kinds of mold on non-porous surfaces however, it is not clear that bleach can kill all kinds of mold nor kill mold on porous surfaces such as mold.  Research is continuing to be done on the effectiveness of bleach as a mold cleanup agent. 
  • KILLING MOLD IS ENOUGH, I DON’T NEED TO REMOVE IT – Killing mold is not enough. Putting aside the conflicting reports on what kills mold, simply killing mold does not remove the health effects as the allergens are still present even in dead mold.  To properly protect against health effects, removal of the affected areas is often necessary.  Care must be taken when removing the affected areas so that the allergens and mold is not spread throughout the home or place of business.  That is why you call the professionals SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach 850-863-2552 to properly fix the problem.
  • MOLD IS NATURAL, YOU SHOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT IT – While mold may be natural, constant exposure to mold can have a negative effect on someone’s health. If mold is growing in your home or place of business it needs to be addressed because it will not only deteriorate your home/building but cause health issues with you family or coworkers
  • IF YOU ONLY SEE A LITTLE BIT OF MOLD IT IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT – If mold is to the point that you visibly see it growing on surfaces in your home or work place then you have a problem! Mold is like an iceberg, you generally see only the tip of it while the majority is below the surface.  If you see a little bit of mold you mostly likely have more growing that your cannot see!!
  • CLEANING UP MOLD ISNT HARD! YOU SHOULD  DIY! – This is another half truth.  While you may be able to clean up certain kinds of mold in small quantities most people are not equipped to do proper mold remediation.  Simply wiping down the evidence is not good enough.   If it is more than 10 square feet then you first need to have a hygienist come in and do testing and a protocol the call your professional SERVPRO of FORT WALTON BEACH 850-863-2552 to come in and do the proper containment of the area and follow the protocol to make sure that your home or office is properly cleaned.

Fire Prevention Week in the Fort Walton Beach Region

10/3/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Fire Prevention Week in the Fort Walton Beach Region Fire Prevention Week is October 8-14, 2017

Be Ready in Fort Walton Beach if Fire Strikes

October 8-14, 2017 is Fire Prevention Week, offering you and your family the perfect opportunity to evaluate your home’s fire risk. As the weather cools, you spend more time inside, increasing the possibility of accidental fires. Take the time to review your fire prevention strategy, and complete yearly tasks that ensure the technology you rely on to alert you and your family is in good working order.

Smoke Alarms
Make sure a working smoke alarm is installed on every level of your home. Also, install a smoke detector in each bedroom. Use the yearly observation of Fire Prevention Week to change the batteries in your smoke detectors or alarms, but also make sure you test each alarm monthly. Resist any temptation to disable a smoke detector in the kitchen because cooking steam or smoke sets it off occasionally. Instead, invest in and use high-quality exhaust fans when cooking.

Fire Extinguishers
Purchase appropriately rated fire extinguishers and distribute them throughout your home, concentrating on areas where the fire risk is highest. Kitchens, workshops, garages, and utility or laundry rooms are obvious choices, but ensure that an extinguisher is easy to access in every space of your dwelling. Test them regularly and recharge after use.

Plan And Clear Escape Routes
Plan and practice a fire escape plan for each room of your home. Discuss the plan with all members of your family and hold drills regularly so all are confident in what they should do and that they can do it. Assess for special needs like safety ladders for upper stories or your home, and then install and practice their use. Be sure that windows and doors you plan to employ as escape pathways are free of obstructions and are not screwed or nailed shut. Paint and caulk can interfere with opening a window or door. Remedy this problem if you find it impossible to open an escape route.

Review Insurance Coverage And Catalog Your Belongings
Contact your insurance agent yearly to review your fire damage coverage. Make an effort to document and inventory heirlooms and other items with high monetary or sentimental value in your home. Claims are easier to establish with this evidence in hand.

If despite your planning a fire damages your home, contact SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach at (850) 863-2552 for fast and high-quality restoration services. We have the trained technicians, experience, and professional equipment necessary to bring your home back to preloss condition after a minor or major fire.

Fire Damage Fire Damage in Fort Walton Beach, FL Fire Damage SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach cleaned-up

When a fire happens, the first thing homeowners want to do is return their home to normal. The last thing they want to do is deal with the paperwork. That's understandable when one of the worst things that can happen to your home actually does, it's a nightmare came true. 

As a Fort Walton Beach homeowner, fire damage isn't just a job to you, and we at SERVPRO feel the same way. This is perhaps the most stressful thing to happen to you as a homeowner, and we will be with you from the first examination to when we put the keys back in your hand. We have six key steps to make sure it happens. 

1) We make sure YOU are satisfied - Our inspectors and technicians will explain the restoration process to you and answer every question. 

2) Minimize and further loss - Our teams are highly skilled and trained to prevent secondary property loss from smoke or soot damage and as we move your property out of the damaged areas and then back in once the work is completed. 

3) Identify what can be restored - We will test every item that may have been exposed to determine if it can be cleaned, does not require cleaning or could be questionable and depends on your decision. We will also be honest with you about what is no longer useful and needs to be replaced. 

4) Save you and your insurance adjuster time - We will help you work with your adjuster to process everything as quickly as possible. Our initial testing and inspections provide the adjuster with the information they need to get your fire insurance case started. 

5) Report the scope of loss - Our work reports to the both of you keep the paperwork moving as we restore your home and property. They also help the adjuster review our services and prioritize the work schedule to reduce costs. Once we're done, we will provide a final report that will help the adjuster process all final paperwork. 

6) Produce quality restoration - In the end, even if the insurance adjuster is happy with our work, we've failed if you aren't happy. This last step is what customer service is all about for us.

We don't just come in, drag out your possessions, throw on a coat of paint and then hand you a bill. As a locally owned franchise, SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach is here to help our neighbors through every step of the fire restoration process.

Are You Ready for the Holidays?

11/21/2016 (Permalink)

The holiday season is one of the best times of the year!  There is so much to look forward to, so you don’t want any accident to ruin your plans, home, or business. 

There are a couple things SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach wants you to check before you get into that holiday spirit:

  1. Check your home or business furnace before starting. Change the air filter, clear the vents of any debris, and make sure your thermostat is working properly. 
  2. Remember to turn off those lovely scented candles before you leave your house or office. Candles are one of the top fire starters when left unattended.
  3. Before placing your beautiful Christmas tree in the perfect spot, check the surrounding area. Make sure there is nothing that could catch the tree on fire, and that includes ornaments.
  4. Along with the Christmas tree placement, check the lights before you put them up outside or inside. Look for frayed wires or any hazards that could create an electrical fire.  Do not overload your outlets, too.
  5. Take it easy on the cookie baking. Make sure your oven is working properly and if you smell gas and hear a hissing noise, leave your house and call the emergency utility line immediately.  Do not reenter your house until it is checked for a gas leak.
  6. If you have a fireplace, have it inspected to see if it needs cleaning. Soot is flammable and can build up, so ensure your fireplace is good to go before you start using it!

SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach is available 24 hours a day, even on holidays, if an emergency occurs.  Make sure to call 850-863-2552 if there is any emergency we can help with!

 

*Remember, we are available for carpet, tile, drape, and upholstery cleanings too! We want to ease the craziness and take care of all that for you! Happy Holidays from SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach!

Do:

·         Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particle from being embedded into upholstery and carpet.

·         Keep hands clean. Soot on hands can further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.

·         Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.

·         If heat is off during winter, pour RV antifreeze in sinks, toilet bowls, holding tanks and tubs to avoid freezing pipes and fixtures.

·         Wash both sides of leaves on house plants.

·         Change HVAC filters, but leave system off until a trained professional can check the system.

·         Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers to stop particles of soot from getting in or out of the HVAC system

Don’t:

·         Attempt to wash any walls or painted surface

·         Attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstery furniture

·         Attempt to clean any electrical appliances ( TVsets, radios, etc.) that may have been close to fire, heat or water

·         Consume any food or beverage that may have been stored close to fire, heat or water( They may be contaminated)

·         Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet. Wiring may be wet or damaged and cause electrical shock, and air movement may create secondary damage.

When Okaloosa fire damage strike your home, it is essential to hire a professional team to help restore any damages. Get an Estimate Right Away.

SERVPRO has a working relationship with over 315 insurance and property management companies. This company will work with you to complete your paperwork and assist with your claim process. If an insurance company covers only a certain percent of the total cost, it is imperative to get an accurate assessment of the fire damage, and a scope of service for restoration and repair.

Repairs are needed Quickly 
Remember that repairs are required quickly to avoid permanent or further water damage caused by extinguishing the fire. Rapid cleaning and correctly wiping down soot will also salvage more fire damaged items and lessen your final expenses.

Free Estimates from a Professional Company 
Most quality restoration companies will provide detailed free estimates. The company will provide you with a list of needed repairs and a timeline for completing the repairs. The estimates must include all fire damage, but also the large tasks of safely removing charred furniture, walls, or other items, as well as clearing smoke odor and water damage from the home. Smoke and soot, in a large blaze, can cause significant destruction. After the water has been removed using industrial grade pumps, the drying process can start using air movers to increase the evaporation rate of the interior and dehumidifiers to reduce the relative humidity (RH) of the ambient air, porous materials, and fabrics.

Mold Vs. Mildew

5/16/2016 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Vs. Mildew Mold in home Fort Walton Beach

Mold vs. Mildew

While there are many differences between the two fungi, mold and mildew both develop and thrive in moist conditions. A leaking roof, a window that doesn’t seal properly, and a basement with water damage caused by a broken pipe can all lead to the growth of mildew and mold. In order to reduce the risk of health effects and damage to building materials, mildew and mold in the home or a business need immediate mold remediation. Continue reading to learn more about the differences between mold and mildew, and the danger both may present to your home or business.

Mildew vs Mold

Plain and simple, mildew and mold are fungi. Fungi can live in many different types of habitats such as in soil, on vegetation, and on surfaces exposed to moist conditions like a wall or ceiling after flood damage. Fungi reproduce by spores and quickly can spread.

What is mildew? Mildew is mold in its early stage and often the term is used interchangeably with the word mold. That whitish-gray, powdery substance sometimes seen on the leaves of a plant is mildew. Mildew is a surface fungi that grows on organic material like plants and food as well as wood or fibrous items like:

  • Drywall
  • Insulation
  • Cardboard/paperboard
  • Wallpaper
  • Fabric
  • How is it different from Mold? Mold ranges in color from green to gray, brownish and black. It may appear fuzzy, flat or even slimy. Green slimy mold may develop in the damp, shady areas of decks and even vinyl siding, while indoors, mold can develop on grout, tile and other surfaces found in and around bathrooms and other areas with high humidity and inadequate ventilation.

    Pro Tip: Slimy mold on decks, fences and siding often can be removed using a pressure washer. Always wear proper safety protection when dealing with mold and working with tools.

    Dangers of Mildew and Mold

    In a battle between mildew vs mold, which presents more problems and danger? It depends on several factors.

    The powdery mildew often found on the leaves of a houseplant, typically poses little danger to you, but it can harm the plant. However, anyone that suffers from mold allergies should avoid touching that mildew. If contact occurs, wash hands thoroughly and never touch your face/eyes/nose after coming in contact with mildew.

    The Need for Mold Remediation

    Mold and mildew, if ignored, can cause long-term health issues and physical damage to a home or business. Mold found anywhere in a building, such as behind drywall, on insulation, around windows and along basement walls has developed because there is a moisture problem. To avoid further damage, it’s essential to locate and correct the source of the moisture and then remove all traces of mold.

    Any home or business that’s suffered any type of water damage (from firefighting efforts, roof leak, burst pipe or flood) needs professional assessment quickly. Contact SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach immediately after any water disaster; mold can begin developing within 24 to 48 hours. Trust our professional technicians for a comprehensive mold remediation plan. Call (850)863-2552.

    Does your Destin Home have a Mold Problem

    4/21/2016 (Permalink)

    Mold Remediation Does your Destin Home have a Mold Problem In Destin, FL Mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

    Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

    ·         Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.

    ·         Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.

    ·         Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.

    ·         Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.

    ·         Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.

    ·         Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

    If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

    7 Upgrades for April

    Community 7 Upgrades for April Plant a Tree!

    The beginning of Spring is always a good time for deep cleans and reorganization.  It makes us feel refreshed for the new season.  Here is a list of 7 easy upgrades you can do in your home this month.

    1.       Inspect porches

    You’ll want to check your porches for rotting, so that you can replace any old boards that might be damaged.

    2.       Organize attic

    This is a great way to de-clutter your home.  Throw away those items that have been stored up there for so long or maybe even sell them in a yard sale!

    3.       Head off spring allergies

    You can prevent allergens from spreading deep into your home by placing a door mat at each entrance of your home.  An even better way to be sure you aren’t bringing in allergens and pollens from the ground is to remove your shoes before entering your home.  This will also keep your carpets cleaner!

    4.       Check for termites

    And if you have a problem, call an exterminator!

    5.       Re-caulk around the tubs

    Ensure that no water is seeping behind the bathroom tiles by replacing your old caulk with new.  This can prevent extensive water damages.

    6.       Refresh old potting soil

    If your plants last year were healthy, then you can reuse the soil.

    7.       Plant a tree

    Happy Arbor Day!  April 29 is the date this year that is dedicated to planting and caring for trees.  A crap myrtle would be perfect for our area!

    Flooding due to heavy rain fall in Fort Walton Beach and Destin area.

    10/6/2015 (Permalink)

    Water Damage Flooding due to heavy rain fall in Fort Walton Beach and Destin area. Fort Walton Beach Business Flooded.

    Flooding occurred throughout Fort Walton Beach and Destin Area last Tueday, affecting several Fort Walton Beach and Destin homes and businesses. It was reported around 11 inches of rain fell last Tuesday causing damage to areas throughout Fort Walton Beach and Destin, FL. If your house or business experienced any moisture intrusion, there are some things you should keep in mind while trying to mitigate the damage and keeping your families and employees safe:

    1) Flood water is treated as Category 3 water by restoration specialists and insurance companies. This means that it is referred to as grossly contaminated. It could contain harmful bacteria and has the potential to cause health issues to patrons if not mitigated properly. 

    2) Highly porous materials such as carpeting and drywall should be removed in most of these situations. Often times these materials cannot be treated with traditional drying techniques. Once those materials are removed, all remaining areas such as concrete and wood framing should be treated with antimicrobials and then dried out properly. 

    3) Not everyone has flood insurance. Flood insurance is often contained in a separate policy. Not all insurance companies offer flood insurance and you should check your policy to see what is covered. 

    4) Water damage causes more issues the longer you wait. Materials continue to soak up moisture and microbial growth occurs within a couple days. Without quick action, the indoor environment of your home could be at jeopardy.  

    If you experience any water damage issues in Fort Walton Beach Destin area please contact your professional, local cleanup team for assistance and stay safe!

    Mold Remediation Black mold growth in your home Mold growth in condo in Destin, FL after air conditioning was turned off for several weeks.

    10 Most common areas for mold growth in your home.

    Mold is a living organism that belongs to the fungi family (like mushrooms, yeast, and even some  cheeses like blue cheese).

    According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mold can grow on virtually any organic material as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that grow on wood, paper, carpet, food, and insulation. Because mold eats or digests what it is growing on, it can damage a building and its furnishings. If left unchecked, mold eventually can cause structural damage to building materials.
