Are You Storing Water Damage in Your Destin Warehouse?

Commercial Are You Storing Water Damage in Your Destin Warehouse? Water damage to your warehouse can be devastating.

Fast Commercial Water Removal Services Keep a Destin Warehouse's Interior from Corroding

The amount of metal making up the surfaces and structures in a warehouse in the Destin area seems unimportant most of the time. Once an incident involving water flooding the facility happens, all of that metal can begin corroding. Corrosion can cause paint to peel, surfaces to become hazardous due to its roughness, and even lose strength in platforms and stairways.  

SERVPRO can help keep your warehouse safe by providing commercial water removal services in Destin that do more than merely dry the floors. Our services require the use of heavy-duty equipment and machines to pull moisture out of hidden areas and get your business completely dry, which includes your inventory, equipment, and products. We understand that each component of your operations plays a crucial part every day, so we strive to get things back to normal for you, “Like it never even happened.”  

Our specialists choose between different water extraction devices, including our large and powerful submersible pumps that come mounted on one of our Green Fleet's trucks. They can also opt for smaller devices that pull water left on floors in hallways, closets, and other small areas up through the handheld unit and flexible, non-binding tubing and into an easy-to-empty canister. No matter the amount of water on your floors, SERVPRO has the equipment to get the job done.  

Our desiccant machines continue the process by extracting water vapor from the air. As we dry out any dampness held in walls or other locations with your air movers, previously trapped moisture ends up in the air. As the water vapor gets drawn through the desiccant machines, it removes the water and releases only dry air back into your factory.  

When metal structures sit in a damp environment, corrosion can begin breaking down the surface's smoothness as it oxidizes. Removing this extra moisture can prevent this from happening, but it often requires that we wipe everything down with absorbent cloths designed to extract moisture quickly. Our ability and skill in efficient teamwork help us accomplish this quickly. The application of protective sprays that arrest corrosion work well, and only require another team member or two to add substantial protection where needed.

SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach helps different business types in the areas around Valpariso, Eglin, and Niceville. Call us at (850) 863-2552 when your factory, warehouse, or other setting needs water removal services to stay up and running.

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.

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.

Our IICRC-schooled technicians combine coursework mastered with years of experience to manage each kind of residue and debris produced by your fire scenario appropriately. SERVPRO stocks each service vehicle with the tools and cleaning products needed for the entire spectrum of fire damage we see, from dry sponges and HEPA vacuums for light coatings of soot to abrasive cleansers and solvents for tenacious residues.

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.

Water removal and structural drying are two of our core services at SERVPRO.

The IICRC sets industry standards internationally for the best practices in the water damage restoration industry.

We arrive with vehicles fully equipped and ready for fast water removal. Water more than two inches deep is attacked with submersible pumps, and then powerful water extractors move in to pull water out of cracks, crevices, and hidden areas behind walls. SERVPRO technicians use moisture meters to help set drying baselines and scanners to locate pockets of water that we work to release by removing sections of walls or drilling holes.

Once the water is removed, drying commences. High-efficiency air movers and dehumidifiers bring moisture levels down quickly, and the SERVPRO team monitors this process constantly to determine when the drying targets are achieved. Different materials have various optimum moisture levels, and this is noted and taken into consideration so we do not overshoot a mark nor leave unwanted moisture that could cause secondary damage.

Water removal must be accomplished quickly to get your business up and running again. SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach is on task 24 hours a day. Call us at (850) 863-2552 to set up an assessment and plan to get the water out of your commercial building.
