Water Damage Water Damage Do´s and Don’ts Water Damage Do´s and Don’ts

Did you know…?

Almost 70% of property damage involves water – through flooding, broken pipes, sewer backups or after a fire. Water can cause extensive damage and pose a serious threat to building structures, interior furnishings, important documents and prized belongings.

Another danger is that mold can begin growing within 24–48 hours. Mold growth and related bacteria and allergens can result in serious long-term, health issues.

What you can do until help arrives

After any water damage situation, your primary focus should be safety first:

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

When your home has water damage from flooding or leaks, you need the company that can respond immediately and has the expertise and equipment to properly restore your property. SERVPRO uses advanced water damage inspection and extraction equipment to help them find the moisture and to remove it as quickly as possible. Our highly trained technicians will monitor and document the drying process so that you know your property is back to normal.

As a locally owned and operated business, SERVPRO is close by and ready to respond to your flood or water damage emergency. We are proud to be an active member of your community and want to do our part to make our community the best it can be.

Every water disaster is different, from the amount of water to the level of contamination of the water. Each scenario requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same.

What to Do After Flooding

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and cushions.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer.
  • Remove colored rugs from wet carpeting.
  • Remove art objects to a safe, dry place.
  • Gather loose items from floors.

We invest in the latest technology and equipment because it helps us restore your home more quickly and to minimize cost. This equipment allows us to detect hidden moisture and extract standing water quickly and efficiently. We also utilize professional-strength cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing products to cleaning and sanitize the affected water damage area for your comfort and safety.

You know SERVPRO of Martin County as a leader in Water Damage, but our expertise can also make a dirty carpet "Like it never even happened."

Storm Damage Is your business ready to deal with heavy storms? Is your business ready to deal with heavy storms?

Did you know …

According to the latest industry research, as many as 50% of businesses may never recover following a disaster. Of the businesses that survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind.

When a major storm hits, it may overwhelm local restoration companies. SERVPRO can scale our resources by accessing the equipment and personnel of 1,700 Franchises. We can also access Disaster Recovery Teams that specialize in major storms and catastrophic events.

Floods and storms don’t wait for normal business hours, and neither do we. You can depend on an immediate response from our highly trained technicians, who are available 24 hours, seven days a week.

Do you have a Disaster Recovery plan ready for your business? 

A good way of minimize interruption is by having an immediate plan of action. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation and can help minimize how water and storm damage can affect your business.

Preparation is a key component for making it through any size disaster, whether it’s a small water leak, a large fire or an area flood. The best time for planning for such events is not when the event happens, but well before it happens. No one ever plans on a disaster, but you can plan for it. Now is the time to ask yourself, “Are you ready for whatever could happen?”

The SERVPRO Disaster Recovery Team can provide help whether you're dealing with a heavy storm, tornado, hurricane, blizzard or flood. The SERVPRO System has a network of strategically positioned storm teams on standby should a disaster strike near you.

Do you need a mold removal at home?

Mold Remediation Do you need a mold removal at home? Mold Removal at Home

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. In humid climates such as Florida, mold can easily take root in areas that have moisture problems. In building with Water Damage, mold will most likely be present unless the area has been promptly dried and ventilated. If the water problem is not treated however, the mold cannot be eradicated. Water Damage is necessary to prevent the allergic reactions, odors, and damage that the spores cause.

Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, 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 that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

When Mold Removal and Water Damage arise, contact us! SERVPRO is certified company specializing in Mold Removal and Water Damage. Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same.

Mold has the potential to cause health effects and can spread through your property in as little as 48 hours. SERVPRO understands mold and mold growth and has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business. Protect your health; call us if you are facing a mold problem.
