Hoarding Fire Risk in Hollywood?

9/13/2021 (Permalink)

A pile of junk is shown. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration in Broward County.

Hoarding in Hollywood?

No one knew how dangerous the house had become until it was too late. The first responders had a tough time entering the home to extinguish the fire because the doors were blocked by hoarding clutter. SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar responds to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in Hollywood. We also provide hoarding cleanup and restoration services. Here is some helpful information about hoarding from the National Fire Protection Association:

Why Hoarding Increases Fire Risks

  • Cooking is unsafe if flammable items are close to the stove or oven
  • Heating units may be too close to things that can burn. They might also be placed on unstable surfaces. If a heater tips over into a pile, it can cause a fire.
  • Electrical wiring may be old or worn from the weight of piles. Pests could chew on wires. Damaged wires can start fires.
  • Open flames from smoking materials or candles in a home with excess clutter are very dangerous
  • Blocked pathways and exits may hinder escape from a fire

Shower Pan Problem in Pembroke Pines?

A shower head is turned on. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration in Broward County.

Do you know when you last inspected your shower pan? A study conducted by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) reported that homes more than twenty years old were 37 percent more likely to have water damage involving a shower, and more than half of these claims involved a damaged shower stall.

SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar has a team of water restoration technicians on-call 24-hours a day. We have been responding to water damage emergencies for years in Pembroke Pines. Some shower pan water damage could have been prevented by annual inspection and maintenance to identify any small, potentially damaging issues before they became a bigger problem and a bigger repair. Here are some tips from the IBHS for maintaining your shower pan:

Inspect tile and grout every six months, paying attention to loose or cracked tiles or cracked and crumbling grout lines. Repair as needed.

Test the shower pan annually by:

  1. Blocking the drain
  2. Fill the shower stall with about one inch of water
  3. Use a pencil to mark the waterline
  4. Leave the water standing in the shower pan for 8 hours
  5. If the water level decreases, contact a plumbing professional

Fire Extinguisher Safety Tips for Miramar?

8/11/2021 (Permalink)

A fire extinguisher is shown in a home. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration services in Broward County.

Knowing how to use a fire extinguisher can save lives. SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar offers these fire extinguisher safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Use a portable fire extinguisher when the fire is confined to a small area, such as a wastebasket, and is not growing; everyone has exited the building; the fire department has been called or is being called, and the room is not filled with smoke.

  • To operate a fire extinguisher, remember the word PASS:
    • Pull the pin. Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you, and release the locking mechanism
    • Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire
    • Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly
    • Sweep the nozzle from side-to-side
  • For the home, select a multi-purpose extinguisher (can be used on all types of home fires) that is large enough to put out a small fire, but not so heavy as to be difficult to handle
  • Choose a fire extinguisher that carries the label of an independent testing laboratory
  • Read the instructions that come with the fire extinguisher and become familiar with its parts and operation before a fire breaks out

Rain Gutter Disaster in Miramar?

8/3/2021 (Permalink)

A clogged rain gutter is shown. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration services in Broward County.

Water Damage Happens in Miramar

Rain gutters are a wonderful feature to have. When working correctly, rain gutters can help prevent water intrusion and water damage to your home. SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar offers these tips from home expert Bob Villa on how to determine if your rain gutters are damaged:

Inspect your rain gutters for visible signs of cracking. Use some binoculars to inspect for smaller cracks. If you see extensive cracking, replacement is required.

Inspect gutter seams for damage where two horizontal sections meet.

Inspect your home’s paint job. If there is evidence of paint peeling, it may point to rain gutter failure. Check the section of the rain gutter closest to the paint damage for leaks. If there are more than a couple of leaks, you may want to replace the rain gutters.

Inspect your home’s exterior wood elements for rotting windowsills or door jambs. You may have clogged rain gutters or inadequate storm drainage.

Inspect the exterior of the home for mildew damage. If there is moisture accumulating around or near the foundation, mildew can grow. This is a sign your rain gutters are not working properly.

Propane Grills

·      Check the gas tank hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year

·      A propane leak will release bubbles

If your grill has a gas leak, by smell or the soapy bubble test, and there is no flame, turn off both the gas tank and the grill.

·      If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again

·      If the leak does not stop, call the fire department

·      If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Do not move the grill.

If the flame goes out, turn off the grill and gas and wait at least five minutes before re-lighting it.

Broken Water Main in Miramar?

Water is gushing out of a broken water pipe, flooding the ground. We mitigate commercial water damage in Pembroke Pines.

Water main disaster in Miramar.

I was so tired of hearing the construction work on the street outside my office window, but boy was I surprised when I heard the sound of water gushing and looked out to see a small geyser on our front lawn! The water main was accidentally damaged by the excavation equipment, and the water was flooding the entrance to our offices.

Advanced technology and equipment.

We called SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar, and they arrived on site quickly and immediately began the restoration process. They set up powerful, industrial-grade water extraction equipment that continually pumped the water out of our building and front entrance until the water main was shut off. They used high-speed air dryers and air movers and documented the drying process to ensure normal moisture levels were restored to the area. I was amazed at how quickly and efficiently they worked. We were able to return to business as usual the next day!

Do you have an emergency plan in place for your pets in the event of a disaster?

Many public shelters and hotels do not allow pets inside, so locate a safe place where you can take your pets before disasters and emergencies happen.

  • Develop a buddy system

Plan with neighbors, friends or relatives to make sure that someone is available to care for or evacuate your pets if you are unable to do so.

  • Have your pet microchipped

Make sure to keep your address and phone number up-to-date and include contact information for an emergency contact outside of your immediate area.

  • Build a kit for your pet

Have one kit for sheltering in place and one kit for evacuation. Include food, water, medicines and review your kit regularly to ensure their contents are fresh.

SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar technicians are on-call 24-hours a day and respond to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in the Pembroke Pines area. We have been responding to fire damage emergencies for years, but Dalmatians have been responding to fire emergencies since the 1870s!

According to an article published by the American Kennel Club, Dalmatians are the unofficial mascot for United States firefighters and are still brought into schools today for fire safety education. Dalmatians were adopted for use by firefighters in the 1870s because they got along so well with the horses and would run alongside the carriages all the way to the scene of the fire. Their highly visible black spots made them easy to see and helped improve the visibility of the emergency responders.

Every fire damage situation will vary, but for most fire damage emergencies, we follow this process:

He was covered in mud and was sopping wet. He has a long fur coat that he shook to remove the water, and he splattered mud spots all over the walls and my furniture.

I was so happy he was home that I didn’t have the heart to get mad at him for the disaster I now faced. Mud was splattered on the walls, floors, and countertops in my kitchen and the white carpeting in my living room looked like it would never be white again. The smell of dirty wet dog permeated the house. Thankfully I remembered to call SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar. They sent a team out and cleaned up the mess in no time!

SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year in Pembroke Pines. Heavy winds and rain can cause damage to a structure even with good planning.

The City of Pembroke Pines has a whole section of its website devoted to severe weather.

This section provides relevant information to Pembroke Pines residents on what is happening in the city before, during, and after a storm and tells residents and business owners what they can do to prepare. It is also suggested that people develop a plan to make sure they have adequate supplies when a big storm hits, as supplies will become very limited when the storm comes in.

STEP 1

Hold a Family Meeting Discuss the hazards of hurricanes. Encourage children to talk about their fears and explain some of the things you’ll be doing to keep everyone safe.

Flood Safety Measures

Here are some flood safety measures from The City of Pembroke Pines website:

  • Do not walk through flowing water. Drowning is the most frequent cause of death during a flood, especially a flash flood. Currents can be deceptive; six inches of moving water can knock you over. Use a pole or stick to ensure that the ground is still there before you go through an area where water is not flowing.
  • Do not drive through a flooded area. More people drown in cars than anywhere else. Do not drive around road barriers; the road or bridges may be washed out.
  • Stay away from power lines and electrical wires. The second-largest killer after drowning is electrocution. Electrical currents can travel through water. Call 1-800-4-OUTAGE (1-800-468-8243) to report a hazardous condition such as a downed power line.

Hidden Water Damage in Pembroke Pines?

A woman is holding a crumpled water bill in her hand. We mitigate water damage in Miramar and Pembroke Pines.

Water Bill Too High?

SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar responds to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in the Pembroke Pines and Miramar areas. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American uses around 88 gallons of water per person in the household. A family of four would typically use about 10,500 gallons of water per month. One way to determine if you have hidden water damage is to examine your water bill during the winter months. Here are some tips for detecting a hidden water leak from the EPA:

  • For a family of four, if your winter water use is more than 12,000 gallons per month, you probably have a water leak.
  • Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, you probably have a leak.
  • To check for toilet leaks, place a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If the color shows up in the bowl within ten minutes without flushing, you have a leak. (Flush immediately after this experiment to avoid staining the tank.)

Pet Odor Removal for Pembroke Pines

During the pandemic we adopted two dogs that had lived together their whole lives and needed new homes when their owner passed away. They were a welcome addition to our family, but there were some “training issues” we had to work through.

Their technicians are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in odor removal. They came out, identified the pet odors' source and locations, neutralized the odors, and removed the kennel smell from my home.

A dog looks out of the dog door of a house. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24 hours a day in the Pembroke Pines and West Miramar areas.

Dog gone door!

It is so convenient to have a cat or dog door installed in the home. Our furry friends can go outside at their leisure to explore and take care of other “urgent business” without having to rely on us to be home or awake to let them out. When installing a pet door, one consideration is to be sure that the door's location does not compromise fire safety. For instance, when you have a home with a door leading into inside from the garage, this is a fire-rated door and is designed to take longer to burn than a standard interior door. So, check to make sure the pet door you install is fire-rated, and check with your insurance company, too. Otherwise, you may void your fire insurance policy!

SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar responds to fire damage emergencies in Miramar 24 hours a day, because we understand that every moment counts when mitigating fire damage.

 •Obtain a report from your local fire department, which includes details of the fire, the structure of the home and fire location, the time, and the date.


 •Discuss with SERVPRO about starting to have your property boarded up until the full cleanup and restoration process begins. This will keep your property safe from those who might vandalize or steal anything that is left in your home.

Los tecnicos de SERVPRO están entrenados para entender las peculiaridades de los daños causados por un incendio en su casa de Pembroke Pines.  La mayoría de la gente entiende el daño con respecto al hollín y humo que queda, pero muchos ignoran cómo la composición de cada superficie tocada por las llamas afecta el resultado.  En cambio, nuestros técnicos entienden estas importantes diferencias y las consideran al momento de limpiar cada una de sus superficies. De no tomarlas en cuenta, corremos el riesgo de causar daños adicionales a su hogar.

Los materiales naturales como la madera, tienden a dejar una nube de polvo fino en su casa, el cual se esparce rápidamente por el aire y los ductos del aire acondicionado.  Los elementos sintéticos dejan un residuo pegajoso en sus cosas, el cual requiere otro plan de acción. Nuestro equipo de SERVPRO tiene la experticia para elegir los mejores limpiadores de acuerdo a cada superficie.  Cuando el objeto no se puede recuperar, consultamos con usted y nos ocupamos de retirarlo de su hogar. Nuestra meta, como la suya, es minimizar el costo de reemplazar todo lo que haya sido afectado por el fuego.

When you live in Hollywood, you are always wary of the damage a storm can cause.  As you hear of friends having roof leaks and faulty windows, you thank your lucky stars that your house is intact. However, it's only a matter of time before your home becomes the victim of water damage. Whether you live in a home or a condo, aging pipes can be your downfall.  Their malfunction allows water to leak all over your floors and soak rugs, furniture, and décor.

Just call our 24/7 line as soon as you discover the damage, regardless of its size. Big or small, our professionals have the tools and training to address your specific needs.

Essential to our success is the use of equipment built for water extraction. It is not sufficient to rent a wet/dry vacuum in your local home improvement store to get the job done. Our SERVPRO water restoration technicians (WRTs) use infrared technology to find water accumulation, even inside your wall cavities and under flooring material. Based on the moisture readings, we implement techniques such as injectidry and drying mats to restore proper humidity levels. The use of specialized equipment protects your home in several ways. It allows us to detect water without having to poke halls in your walls to get a reading. Our probes also allow us to access hard to reach places, such as floorboards or high ceilings. Most importantly, we can curtail the time spent to getting moisture readings, which in turn reduces the time your home and belongings are exposed to standing water.

Ask The Experts: What are some of the most common sources of water damage in a home?

1/6/2021 (Permalink)

When Mother Nature has a bad day in Pembroke Pines, FL, sometimes you do too. Many different natural disasters can lead to flooding inside your home. Unfortunately, even on a sunny day, you can experience a pipe burst or water line break that causes the same result. Be aware of three common causes of residential water damage and what to do if it happens to you.

1. Natural Disasters

Torrential downpours are not the only event in nature that can cause flooding in your house. Hurricanes, snowstorms, ice or hailstorms can be sources of water damage, and even fires can be a potential threat due to firefighting efforts. In any of these emergency situations, consider your safety first. After you and your family are out of danger, contact storm damage and water restoration company that specializes in emergency services. From tarping a roof to prevent further damage to removing the excess floodwaters, professionals can walk you through the steps needed to return your home to preloss condition.

2. Broken Pipe or Line Break

When a pipe burst or a water line break occurs, your house can become flooded with clean, uncontaminated water. In this situation, take action immediately to reduce the risk of secondary water damage. A water restoration specialist can inspect the damage and remove the standing water, and they can also dry, dehumidify, and restore your home and its contents.

3. Sewage Backup

sewer backup is an emergency situation due to the level of contamination in sewage. Immediately leave your home and do not touch the contaminated water. Specialists typically arrive within a few hours with the appropriate equipment to safely remove the water and debris. Your home and possessions will be dried, sanitized, and restored.

Whether the cause is from nature or a man-made source, flooding at your home in Pembroke Pines, should be addressed promptly. When a rainstorm or pipe burst ruins your day, take action by calling in professional water restoration experts. Also, check with your homeowners' insurance agent to see if water damage is covered under your policy.

A window is shown with hundreds of raindrops covering it. Our highly trained technicians are on call 24 hours a day in the Pembroke Pines and West Miramar areas!

The tell-tale smell.

 I didn’t realize how extensive the water damage was until I began to smell a bad, musty odor in my laundry room. I discovered that the window frame was cracked and leaking, and the water had been seeping down the window and onto the windowsill and into the drywall. There was a bubble of water in the drywall by the baseboard, and I knew I was in trouble. Fortunately, I called SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar, and they sent a team of water restoration technicians who immediately began the mitigation process. These technicians had the advanced training, experience, and equipment necessary to quickly and efficiently restore my water damage.

They repaired the cracked window frame, they removed the soggy drywall and water-logged insulation, and they completely cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized the room. They used a hygrometer to measure the extent of the moisture in the room and set up air dryers and air blowers to remove the excess moisture. Once everything was completely dry, they replaced the drywall, taped, and repainted. Now you can't even tell there had been a leak and a soggy wall!

Control Moisture to Help Stop Mold Growth in Pembroke Pines/West Miramar

1/5/2021 (Permalink)

Condensation and Mold in Pembroke Pines/West Miramar.

There are many different kinds of mold. EVERY SINGLE ONE needs moisture to grow.

Mold doesn’t need a storm or flood. Even a tiny bit of dampness is enough for mold.

Have you seen condensed water on the inside of a window? Have you noticed water droplets near the shower?  That water is more than enough for mold to start growing.

SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar wants you to know: if you control moisture, you control mold.

Control Moisture:

  • Clean spills or leaks quickly. Mold can start growing within 24 hours
  • Make sure roof gutters are in good shape
  • Don’t let water collect around the house foundation
  • Don’t let water collect in the air-conditioner drip pans
  • Keep drains clear
  • Indoor humidity should be under 40%
  • Wipe condensation from windows, pipes, or walls

SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar offers these suggestions:

  • Use exhaust fans
  • Use air conditioners and/or dehumidifiers. Low humidity reduces condensation
  • Use the bathroom fan when you shower
  • Appliances should vent to the outside. Even stoves, washers, and dryers produce water vapor

SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar has ideas on reducing condensation:

  • Increase air movement
    • Open doors & windows
    • Use fans
  • Insulate cold surfaces like water pipes
  • Keep  the temperature comfortable

Possible Causes for Water Damage in Pembroke Pines/West Miramar

1/5/2021 (Permalink)

Causes & Categories of Water Damage in Pembroke Pines/West Miramar:

An old poem has the line, “water, water, everywhere”. When you need to say this in your home or office, you know there is trouble. You may be looking at water damage. There are several different possible causes of water damage in Pembroke Pines/West Miramar.

Causes can include:

  • Leaky dishwashers or washing machines
  • Clogged pipes
  • Leaking roofs
  • Broken toilet pipes
  • Heavy rain
  • Snow or ice

The amount of water damage depends on the amount of water and on the cause of the damage. 

It is also important to start the cleanup as soon as possible. The longer your home or business is water-logged, the more damage.

Categories of Water Damage in Pembroke Pines/West Miramar:

  1. Clean water. It might come from an overflowing sink or a broken appliance. The water does not pose a threat to people. Keep in mind that any water will become contaminated after it stops flowing.
  2. Gray water. This water is contaminated from the get-go. It comes from broken toilets or sump pumps. It might not look dirty, or it might be brown.
  3. Black water. Like gray water, it might not look dirty. One major source of black water is broken sewage pipes. Another source is any water that has been standing still.

Knowing The Science About What We Are Cleaning Sets SERVPRO Apart!

1/3/2021 (Permalink)

When searching for a reliable commercial cleaning service provider, our team’s mastery of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training offers a discernible difference to local businesses. SERVPRO professionals not only have the head knowledge behind the science of what needs to be done, but the practical everyday experience to see many different scenarios and to be ready for whatever might occur. 

The Importance of Identifying the Composition of the Surface 

When we evaluate your commercial cleaning needs, one of the essential steps is determining what type of materials we expect to clean. Many folks think they know what the items we will be cleaning are made of, but not everyone can remember, even if they think they do, and so ou training on being able to identify what something actually is made of helps us to help you better! 

Natural Fibers  

Shrinking and color transfer can both be big problems when it comes to natural fibers. If cellulosic fibers are present, one challenge to overcome is a tendency toward discoloration or browning. SERVPRO professionals take the extra time to test areas that are not easily seen first before we proceed with cleaning the entire item to make sure that you end up with the item you remember, and not one you would now like to forget! 

Synthetic Fibers  

These fibers don't react unexpectedly with various cleaning methods and one of the best things about having a synthetic fiber item is the ease with which it can be cleaned. 

Hybrid Fabrics 

Blends of several different fibers, both natural and synthetic, create fabrics. These hybrid materials can pose a puzzle for our SERVPRO team as we plan for the most successful cleaning result.  

Fiber Testing  

SERVPRO professionals perform three different tests to determine fiber make up when we come to your home or business. SERVPRO employees remove samples of the fabric or carpet from a hidden place to complete the testing. 

Burn Test 

We train our SERVPRO technicians to evaluate distinguishing characteristics when fiber burns. We observe the type of flame, odor, ash, and smoke to pinpoint the likely fiber. 

Chemical Test 

Some materials dissolve when they have certain chemicals applied to them. Some do not. SERVPRO professionals are aware of which chemicals dissolve particular fibers and use this knowledge to help identify the different materials used to make things. 

Specific Gravity Test 

We place fibers in a container of water and wait for saturation. The resulting effect tells us what type of fiber we are dealing with.

So call the professionals at SERVPRO today! We are faster to any disaster and are here to help get you back to "Like it never even happened."

Ask the SERVPRO Experts: Which space heater is right for my home?

1/1/2021 (Permalink)

If you love the look of snow in winter but aren't a fan of the frigid temps that come with it, a space heater may be the exact solution for you! However, along with the warmth comes a list of possible disasters waiting to happen. Most fires from space heaters happen as a result of a heater being left too close to a flammable object, but there are other potential issues too that should also be considered. 

When it comes to the flammable item issue, ALWAYS avoid placing your space heater next to:

  • Upholstered furniture
  • Curtains
  • Gas cans
  • Paint
  • Bedding
  • Matches

There are several other steps you can take to avoid a space heater fire in your home. You should check for certain safety features before purchasing a heater. Once you do choose a heater, you should also make sure it is used properly.

Safety Features

What safety features are important "must-haves" for your home? A long cord is important. Why? Extension cords/power strips are not a good idea for a space heater and can lead to a higher chance of potential issues. 

Also, if you have pets or kids, an auto shut off feature is a "must-have". This shuts the heater off automatically if your heater should get knocked over. This could prevent the unthinkable should an accident happen. Even if you don't have pets or kids, you might want to consider this option as well as it also shuts off your heater should it overheat. 

Proper Use

After you take your space heater home, make sure to place it level and on a hard, non-flammable surface, at least 3 feet away from any flammable item. Also, keep your kids safe by keeping it away from them! If the cord looks frayed at any point, it is time to invest in a new one, so check the cord often! 

If disaster does strike, whether from a space heater or another source, give the fire damage cleanup experts at SERVPRO a call! We are faster to any disaster and are here to help get you back to "Like it never even happened."

How Often Floridians experience Hurricanes?

8/20/2020 (Permalink)

How Often Floridians experience Hurricanes


A Hurricane is a very strong storm that forms in the ocean and sometimes comes onto dry land, bringing winds and flooding that can be destructive and could cause devastation to shorelines and inland cities.

The location where Florida is located makes the state extremely vulnerable and exposed to powerful Storms. That’s the reason why residents and tourists must be vigilant and prepared during the storm season that goes from June 1st though November 30th

The most devastating Hurricanes to hit Florida were Hurricane Andrew in August of 1992, Katrina in August of 2005, Wilma in October of 2005, Irma in September of 2017 and Hurricane Michael in October of 2018.

The majority of storms form in the Caribbean Sea or the Gulf of Mexico and typically one or two depressions make landfall in the United States every year. Florida and Texas are the most dangerous states with the most recorded hurricanes in history.

Therefore, it is extremely important that tourists be on the alert when planning a visit to Florida. As an added precaution everyone vising the state should consider downloading a reliable weather app like the American Red Cross or keep informed with the most updated forecast news before or during their trip.


What visitors should know when planning a visit to the sunshine state:

If you are planning on vising the state in the active Hurricane months of August, September or October you should consider reserving a hotel that offers refunds, cancellations or that allows you to change your vacation dates. You should also consider maybe getting travel insurance to guarantee you won’t lose your vacation savings. You should also consider bringing rain gear such as an umbrella when visiting Florida in those months, since thunderstorms are common across the state. However, if a tropical storm or hurricane does develop, you should have at least a general idea of how to stay safe and what to do if a storm makes landfall. If you're unable to evacuate, you'll want to shelter in place. Create a catastrophe kit as soon as possible so each person traveling has a minimum of three days’ worth of drinking water and non-perishable food items, plus batteries, a flashlight, a first aid kit, and a cellphone.

Please keep in mind that a Hurricane does not necessarily need to make landfall in order to ruin your plans. If a depression forms in the Caribbean, it does not necessarily need to make landfall to cause devastation to the coastal cities. Storm surges such as floods, strong winds, and rainy weather can cause catastrophic property damage. Even storms that are not categorized as Hurricanes can still cause lock downs or evacuations if the storm conditions worsen.

SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines/ West Miramar specializes in the cleaning and restoration of catastrophic events related to storm damage such as water and wind damage.

There is water in my house, now what?

7/28/2020 (Permalink)

Floods in the home can become a nightmare and can result in a chaotic situation leaving occupants feeling helpless. Unfortunately, flooding in the home is a very common occurrence in Florida. Picking up the pieces after a flood can be overwhelming but taking the correct steps and putting in some hard work, can help restore your home back to normal very quickly.

SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines / West Miramar gives you a few tips to help you maintain safety for you and your family before you begin the cleaning process:

  • TIP #1: Always assume that flood water is contaminated, this way you are going to have a proper cleaning.
  • TIP #2: Prepare yourself with waterproof boots or waders and gloves.
  • TIP#3: Keep children and senior citizens away from flood water.
  • TIP#4: Disinfect after clearing away remaining water.
  • TIP#5: Throw away any food (including canned goods) that have been in contact with flood water.

Now, some information on how to get your home livable again and get rid of the water.

The first thing you will need to do is to remove water that is still in your home. This can be done with a shop-vac or water pump that is specifically designed to suck up water. You do not have any of those? Don’t worry, you can use buckets, this old-fashioned method is a great way to get rid of water. The important thing is to get as much standing water out of your home quickly and effectively.

Don’t forget to make sure that your home drains are clear of residues, any remaining water should be drained in an efficient manner.

The second step is Drying. After all the standing water has receded or has been removed, it is time to begin the process of drying your home and your belongings.  Florida has a lot of rain but also great sunshine most of the time. You can take advantage of this and let some of your household items to be dried in the sun outside your house.

Also, open windows and doors to let the trapped moisture escape, and if you have an indoor dehumidifier, it is the time to use it!  Fans are also a good option to put in the area, that would help speed the drying process.

Finally, look for trapped mud or water. Remove the mud you find and begin drying these areas immediately.  Your house should be completely dried before putting your belongings back in again.

We hope you find this information helpful. Flooding is a serious matter and should be treated as such. Remember, if this whole process is overwhelming for you, you can always contact SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines / West Miramar and we’ll take care of everything.

Flood Water Removal Needed in Miramar Home

3/25/2020 (Permalink)

Storm floods We understand the need for rapid response and restoration to minimize the loss of your property. Call us right away we are available 24/7.

How Our SERVPRO Team Handles Water Disasters in Miramar

Flood water removal cannot happen fast enough once it hits a house. The water frequently brings in sewage as part of the mess, and it is not safe to come into contact with unless protective gear gets worn.

A homeowner in Miramar needed flood water removal after flash flooding brought a large amount of sewage-tainted water into the house. SERVPRO techs advised the homeowner to avoid contact with the water and keep pets out of the loss area as well. 

Removal of Important Items

When the techs arrived on-site to begin the extraction of the water, the homeowner needed several things removed from the home he had concerns about leaving behind. When SERVPRO techs handle the restoration of a property, whatever is essential to the homeowner gets priority handling. The techs retrieved the files, jewelry, and lockbox the homeowner requested and continued the restoration process. A point of fact is that we NEVER handle any firearms or weapons in the possession of our customers.

Pretreatment of the Water

Upon arrival, it is standard for the techs to treat the water with antibacterial or antimicrobial agents to lessen the contaminants in the water they are handling. 

Removal Tactics 

When flood damage spreads to affect multiple rooms, the techs often deploy the truck-mounted pumps in tandem with portable pumps to remove the water most efficiently. When this type of moisture wicks into sheetrock, it requires removal and safe disposal as a class three biohazard.

Determining Controlled Demolition Needs

Not all of the water damage is visible. Where it is easy to see wet, buckling sheetrock, it is impossible to view underneath carpet and tile to see how much seepage occurred into the subfloor. SERVPRO techs utilize state-of-the-art moisture detection equipment to ascertain the accurate scale of the damage inside the home. 

Drying Methods

The controlled demolition includes removal of carpet, tile, and hardwood floorboards as needed to open up the flooring for drying. The flood cuts that removed the damaged sheetrock allow for maximum airflow within the wall cavity. After drying, the techs wipe down the loss areas with professional-grade antimicrobials and ready the property for repairs to bring the home to its preloss condition.

SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines / West Miramar at (954) 998-0600 stands ready to help local property owners with flood water removal and cleanup of the problems this issue causes and make the loss, "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO Delivers Successful Water Damage Results In Miramar

water damaged home We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster!

Powerful Equipment and Well-Qualified Technicians Are Why SERVPRO Delivers Successful Water Damage Results in Miramar

Speed is critical when responding to a water loss in Miramar. The corrosive action of water harms both structural components and contents, some damage happening within minutes, and much more within hours and days. Even the most well-intentioned homeowner is unable to respond as quickly and effectively as our Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained technicians supported with our commercial-grade equipment, why you need to contact us.

Recovery Time Frame is Short
Water damage in Miramar can lead to mold growth and damage within 24 to 48 hours. Drywall and ceiling tiles are processed materials, created from cellulose and adhesive substances. They dissolve and crumble fast when wet, similar to how cardboard boxes lose their shape and ability to hold items when soaked. When we respond, our crews are scalable, why we can adjust the number of workers and the inventory of high-efficiency water extracting and drying equipment to achieve our goals swiftly.

Pack-Outs Save Contents and Decrease Structural Drying Time
If water damage occurs in a storage area or space with lots of furnishings, streamlining the recovery is why SERVPRO often recommends coordinating a full or partial pack out. We use a detailed and customizable Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) to track your furnishings, household goods, and personal possessions removed for processing or storage at our production facility. Our talented Contents Processing Technicians (CPT) are well versed in a broad range of strategies that help evaluate, clean, disinfect, and deodorize water-damaged items. Clearing the spaces of your home permits our on-site crews to work faster and more efficiently. Moving soaked contents out also has the immediate effect of lowering the ambient humidity.

Our Proven Track Record Inspires Confidence
More than a decade of impressive restoration results is why SERVPRO is one of the region’s water damage mitigation and remediation leaders. We are a constant constructive presence in the communities we serve. When we complete your water damage project, you can count on us to be here for any concerns or questions you have in the future.

Reliability and commitment to making your property clean, dry, and sanitary fast is why SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines / West Miramar is the company to call. Our number is (954) 998-0600, answered 24/7.

Las Inundaciones Pueden Pasar en Cualquier Momento del Año

3/13/2020 (Permalink)

Señora llamando a SERVPRO para fugas de agua en el hogar Después de que el agua se haya infiltrado en las habitaciones de su hogar, es necesaria una acción rápida.

¿Sabías Que Equipo SERVPRO Ofrece Servicios de Reparación de Daños por Tormentas en Miramar?

En el sur de Florida, generalmente pensamos en inundaciones con respecto a lluvias torrenciales o la temporada de huracanes. Sin embargo, las inundaciones también pueden ocurrir debido a un mal funcionamiento en las líneas de alcantarillado. A veces, las raíces llegan a las tuberías, o los desechos de su cocina, como el aceite y la grasa, pueden acumularse en las tuberías y terminar bloqueándolas. Su problema puede ser aún más grande si las líneas municipales están en mal estado y causan problemas en su vecindario. Si el agua se filtra en su hogar, debido a la lluvia o una obstrucción en su plomería, debe buscar atención professional para tratar el área afectada.

Los propietarios que enfrentan inundaciones en su casa de Miramar tienen la ventaja de estar dentro del área de servicio de SERVPRO. Nuestros servicios están disponibles las 24 horas, los 7 días de la semana para ayudar a restaurar su hogar cuando ocurre una emergencia, minimizando el tiempo en que el agua puede causar estragos en sus pisos y muebles. Cuando se producen inundaciones, el agua exterior trae a su hogar innumerables microbios y desechos, los cuales pueden afectar gravemente su salud. Deje que nuestro equipo de SERVPRO trabaje diligentemente para eliminar el daño residual y devolver su hogar a su estado original.

Una prioridad al restaurar su hogar es devolver las lecturas de humedad a niveles normales. Nuestros técnicos de SERVPRO aplican los principios de higrometría para determinar esos niveles de humedad y monitorear nuestro progreso hasta alcanzar el nivel deseado. Cuando usamos bombas y otros equipos de extracción, nos aseguramos de que cada superficie alcance individualmente un nivel de humedad apropiado. El propietario promedio que intenta extraer agua de la casa rara vez tiene las herramientas sofisticadas necesarias para obtener lecturas precisas de la humedad en el aire.

A medida que logramos la extracción, también trabajamos en un plan para desinfectar su hogar y evitar la proliferación de microbios. En SERVPRO, sabemos que limpiar y desinfectar con soluciones aprobadas por la EPA es esencial para este objetivo. Nos enfocamos no sólo en limpiar su propiedad personal, sino también en llegar a subsuelos, paredes y otros elementos estructurales en riesgo de convertirse en un ambiente propicio para el moho y otros organismos.

SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines / West Miramar es su aliado cuando se producen inundaciones. Llámenos al (954) 998-0600 y deje que nuestro equipo de expertos lo ayude a restaurar su hogar. Juntos, podemos dejarlo como si nunca hubiera pasado.

Did You Know That Team SERVPRO Offers Storm Damage Remediation Services in Miramar?

3/8/2020 (Permalink)

flooded bedroom After water has infiltrated the rooms in your home, quick action is necessary. Contact SERVPRO for water removal and remediation efforts.

Flooding Can Happen Any Time of Year

In South Florida, we usually think of flooding around torrential rains or hurricane season. However, flooding can also occur due to a malfunction in your sewer lines.  Sometimes roots make their way into your pipes, or your kitchen waste such as cooking oil can build up on your pipes and end up blocking them. Your problem may be even more significant if municipal lines are in disrepair and causing trouble in your neighborhood. If water is seeping into your home, because of the rain or of a clog in your plumbing, you need to seek professional attention to treat the affected area.

Homeowners facing flooding in their Miramar home have the advantage of being within aSERVPRO service area.  Our services are available 24/7 to help restore your home when the emergency happens, minimizing the time in which water can wreak havoc on your floors and furniture.  When floods occur, outside water brings into your home countless microbes and debris, both of which can severely affect your health. Let our SERVPRO crew work diligently in removing the residual damage and return your home to pristine condition.

A priority when restoring your home is to return moisture readings in your home to normal levels. Our SERVPRO technicians apply the principles of hygrometry to determine those humidity levels and monitor our progress towards reaching this threshold.  As we use pumps and other extraction equipment, we make sure that each surface individually reaches an appropriate humidity level. The average homeowner attempting to extract water from the home rarely has the sophisticated tools designed to have accurate readings of the moisture in the air.

As we achieve the extraction, we also work on a plan to disinfect your home and avoid the proliferation of microbes in your home.  At SERVPRO, we know that cleaning and disinfecting with EPA-approved solutions is essential to this goal. We focus not only on cleaning your personal property, but also reaching sub-floors, walls, and other structural elements at risk of becoming a breeding ground for mold and other organisms.

SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines / West Miramar is your ally when flooding occurs.  Call us at (954) 998-0600 and let our expert team help in restoring your home.  Together, we can leave it “Like it never even happened.”

Avoid Delays When Dealing With a Commercial Flood Damage Situation in Pembroke Pines

Understanding how Kitchen Equipment can affect Commercial Flood Damage Restoration in Pembroke Pines

Understanding how a business works on a structural level is essential to performing any commercial restoration task. Our experience is built on years of working with commercial clients in a variety of different businesses. As the owner or property manager of a busy kitchen, it is likely that you face water emergencies at some points. These may be the result of faulty appliances or structural deficiencies that lead to massive amounts of water entering your business. Often, these may only be realized out-of-hours, at a point when your kitchen is due to open or at the end of service. 

Our commercial flood damage restoration technicians are based here in Pembroke. SERVPRO runs an urgent out-of-hours service for business clients that need instant results and restoration to avoid revenue losses. You can contact us anytime day or night to arrange service, and we have technicians on-call throughout the night and early morning to begin the mitigation and restoration tasks your business needs to run smoothly. We are proud of the technician roster that boasts a tremendous amount of experience in dealing with small commercial clients in the public service industry. 

Commercial buildings can be challenging to restore because of the variety of mechanical systems. Consider your kitchen. There may be gas appliances, chimneys, air-exchange systems, ventilation shafts as well as electrical fixtures. All of these elements can affect the drying process because they create negative, positive, or neutral air pressure. A kitchen exhaust, for example, can have a detrimental effect on dehumidification or air-moving systems that SERVPRO uses to speed up drying times. 

A drying system that we commonly use to combat residual moisture after flooding is to create an air exchange. Wet air forms a barrier above surfaces that slows down evaporation and raises relative humidity. SERVPRO technicians may use air moves to remove moist air barriers and ensure that surfaces dry as quickly as possible. In addition to air-movement, we may decide to use dehumidifiers to control relative humidity and create the ideal conditions for drying. We monitor the progress of these systems every twenty-four hours and take care to raise awareness of the potential adverse effects of operating kitchen exhausts, electrics, or oven hoods. 

Drying a property quickly and efficiently requires the experience of working within particular commercial structures and business models. Contact SERVPRO of Pembroke Pines / West Miramar at (954) 998-0600.

Our Experts Discuss The Destructive Properties Of Soot In Your Hollywood Home

2/13/2020 (Permalink)

soot damaged property No matter how we can help, you can count on our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines team to respond 24/7 when you call (954) 998-0600.

Destructive Properties of Soot After Hollywood House fires

While many Hollywood homeowners can appreciate soot being one of the challenging products of combustion in the house, few recognize what makes this residue and airborne contaminant so hazardous for those attempting to remove it on their own. Fire losses can be overwhelming enough without misinformation about the origins of soot and how it can affect your house and its occupants.

Before any homeowner can appreciate the need for restoring this fire damage in Hollywood residences, it is essential to understand the hazard itself. Soot is the product of incomplete combustion of fuels like wood, oil, and other materials. Because so many homes have wood flooring, framework, and supports, the production of soot is a situation that our SERVPRO fire restorers must overcome. While the inspection and mitigation of your property should occur by our trained professionals, it is simple to determine the presence of soot residues by looking for dark black accumulations in the damaged areas of the property.

Acidic Composition
Because of its acidic foundation, soot particles settling onto a surface can damage the material even without agitation or improper cleaning techniques. Soot can erode or mar surfaces, causing them to require replacement or refinishing by our SERVPRO professionals responding to the threat.

Staining
Cleaning up soot residues is a crucial element to restoration and mitigation of fire losses in area homes, and our technicians can help by choosing the appropriate product and technique based on the severity of the soot residue and the material affected. Improper cleaning can smear the material’s surface and irreparably stain it in many cases.

Health Effects
As soot is microscopic, aerosolized particles can get inhaled by those without personal protective equipment like respirators. These toxic particulates can cause health effects for DIY restorers, but we can utilize tools like air scrubbers to begin filtering out airborne soot.

Soot is one of the most considerable obstacles for restoring technicians responding to a fire loss in your home. No matter how we can help, you can count on our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines team to respond 24/7 when you call (954) 998-0600.

water damage on flooring Whether it's a plumbing issue or storm related, flooding needs to be dealt with immediately. Contact SERVPRO right away for water removal.

Protect Your Flooring From Water Damage

Water damage has many different looks. It can come as the result of a hurricane or heavy rains or a rise in water levels around your home. It can also be the byproduct of a plumbing issue or a faulty appliance. Whatever the case may be, restoring your home is the ultimate goal after a water event, regardless of its size and origin. For a full restoration, it is best to reach out to a reputable professional service that knows the intricacies of extracting water in a way that minimizes your loss and prevents future complications.

When your home is in Pembroke Pines, and you need water damage advice, SERVPRO is your go-to resource.

All you need to do is call our 24/7 hotline and invite our expert team to arrive at your home and put their knowledge to good use. By tapping into our business acumen, you resolve your current situation and avoid complications such as mold and bacteria, which can proliferate if the affected areas are not completely dry.

Perhaps one of the most challenging issues, when your home is underwater, is that of preserving your floors. If you have carpeting, swift action is essential to minimize the time of exposure. The longer your carpet is soaked, the harder it is to preserve. By bringing in our truck-mounted pumps, as well as submersible pumps and extraction wands, our SERVPRO technicians have options to extract water quickly and mitigate the threat of mold. Knowing the importance of drying both the top and bottom of the carpet is key to preventing problems. If you have hardwood floors, you are also vulnerable to the effects of water damage. Once again, our SERVPRO staff comes to your home equipped with specialized tools designed to extract excessive moisture carefully in order to avoid buckling of the floors.

Did a Washing Machine Leak Cause Water Damage in Your Pembroke Pines Home?

1/30/2020 (Permalink)

Looking down on washing machine spinning a load of clothes Leaking washing machines are a leading cause of water damage. Insect your hoses often for signs of wear.

Extracting Water Damage from a Pembroke Pines Laundry Room 

Water damage can happen anywhere and at any time. All it takes is a cracked gasket, leaky hose, or rusty connector to introduce water into the home. Once there, it can wreak havoc on drywall, flooring, subflooring, and furniture if left unchecked. 

If your Pembroke Pines home has suffered water damage, SERVPRO technicians can come to your home within hours of your call to begin the cleanup process. Not only does SERVPRO help homeowners reclaim their residences after a disaster, this team knows the value that comes with participating in the community. This franchise assists and is affiliated with the Pembroke Pines Foodbank as well as the Pembroke Pines/Miramar Chamber of Commerce and the Community Apartment Institute. Franchise owner Morena D. Fenero is also an active member of the local Humane Society. 

SERVPRO's Training Programs 

SERVPRO technicians, staff, and franchise owners receive extensive training in disaster mitigation techniques and theory on top of franchise training and Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certification courses. On top of their training in fire, water, and mold damage mitigation and remediation, employees can undertake self-paced online learning opportunities to round out their education further.       

How SERVPRO Restores Homes 

SERVPRO uses a variety of methods to address water damage in your home but follows a specific process to ensure safe and thorough drying each time. If the damage stems from damaged washing machine hoses leaking onto your floor, technicians use moisture measurement technologies to determine whether water has penetrated flooring. Ceramic tile and other hard flooring solutions hold up well against water. Still, other types of flooring, especially those with vapor barriers installed, may pose challenges for effective drying and can delaminate with enough exposure to moisture. 

After assessing moisture levels in surfaces, technicians can use portable, back-mounted extractors, squeegees, and wet/dry vacuums to remove water. Air movers and dehumidifiers can then dry the space to safe levels. EPA-registered antimicrobial solutions aid in both removing bacteria and mitigating light odors. 

SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines wants to ensure that your home looks, "Like it never even happened." Call (954) 998-0600 for rapid disaster cleanup.

Your Local SERVPRO Team Is Ready To Restore Your Hollywood Home After A Fire

1/15/2020 (Permalink)

A kitchen covered in soot and smoke damage after a fire We're trained in fire & smoke restoration, odor control, upholstery & fabric cleaning, and we are ready 24/7 to assist you right away.

SERVPRO Tackles Fire Damage in a Hollywood Kitchen

Cooking fires can be tricky to tackle for homeowners. Not only are the residues from these fires challenging to clean, but many of them go unreported. This can make dealing with the long-term effects particularly difficult, especially since soot deposits and invisible protein residues can corrode materials and spread unpleasant odors that do not respond to the use of consumer-grade cleaning products.

If you are struggling to remove kitchen fire damage in your Hollywood residence, your local SERVPRO is ready to assist you with EPA-registered antimicrobials and expert fire damage mitigation techniques. Technicians receive extensive training in fire damage mitigation and restoration, including cleaning carpets, upholstery, and water damage from firefighting efforts. No matter the extent of damage to your home, this crew is dedicated to safely restoring as much as possible to save homeowners time, money, and stress.

Preventing Protein Odors from Spreading Throughout Your Home

  • Put out the fire. Turn off the stove and remove the pan from the heat immediately. Make sure the burned meat is disposed of somewhere outside of your home or can continue to spread odors.
  • Keep your hands clean. If you get protein residues from a kitchen fire on your hands, you can unintentionally spread it to any object that you touch. Wash your hands immediately to prevent the proliferation of odors and residues.
  • Protect your possessions. Use plastic covers or old sheets to cover furniture, rugs, and upholstery to minimize smoke penetration and the spreading of protein residues.
  • Call a cleanup crew. Consumer products are not designed to deal with the long-term effects of fire damage, including invisible protein residues. Call a cleanup crew as soon as possible to minimize the spread of odors and restore your home. The longer you wait, the more time these odor-causing particles have to penetrate surfaces in your home.

How SERVPRO Saves the Day

Because fires can have a variety of effects on a variety of surfaces, SERVPRO uses a broad selection of techniques to deal with materials in a way that helps to preserve them as much as possible. Electronic kitchen appliances in your kitchen can be cleaned with a variety of materials, including wet and dry cleaners for exterior components, and under specific circumstances, compressed air for interior hardware.

Damaged decorations and knickknacks or flat painted surfaces in your kitchen can be addressed with SERVPRO's Crumbly Cleaner. This cleaning material, designed to mitigate dry or loose smoke damage in a similar way to how pencil erasers remove graphite, falls apart as it absorbs residues.

How to Take the Headache Out of Dealing With Storm Damage in Hollywood

1/5/2020 (Permalink)

flooded Florida home Storms happen quickly in our area. React just as fast with a call to SERVPRO. Our technicians are standing by 24/7 to take your emergency call.

Flash Floods Require a Professional Team

Even though it feels like we should no longer be in the rainy season, we continue to see torrential downpours wreaking havoc throughout South Florida.  Storms are so intense that even airport operations suffer the consequences, and homeowners find themselves rushing to protect their homes. As idyllic as Hollywood is, it is not immune to the sudden shift in weather patterns, and we need to prepare to deal with the aftermath of excessive rains.  The local government agencies certainly play an essential role in keeping streets and sewers in good working order, but we also have a part to play. 

For flood removal services in Hollywood, you can rely on SERVPRO.  Flash floods can happen quickly, without you even realizing that your home is vulnerable to flooding.  As much as you attempt to control the entry of debris and outside bacteria into your home when flash flooding occurs, it may be inevitable.  How you react to the event can make all the difference for you and your family. Many homeowners choose to extract water and disinfect their homes by applying solutions found at local hardware and home improvement stores.  Little do they know that bacteria may remain despite their best efforts, causing a problem that only gets worse with time.

The best way of leveraging the expertise of our SERVPRO technicians is by allowing us to assess the situation with our industry-specific tools, which enable us to detect excess moisture, even if it is not evident to the naked eye.  Our equipment helps us identify water collected behind walls and under flooring, which in turn allows us to perform a thorough job of eliminating traces of black water brought in by the flooding. Once we return humidity levels to regular readings, we can proceed to disinfect with targeted solutions that prevent the growth of propagation of bacteria throughout your home.

Flash flooding is not a small matter. As soon as outside water enters your home, you are subject to the proliferation of mold and bacteria.  Our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines crew can help you dissipate such an unpleasant event by applying a systematic approach to cleaning and disinfecting your home.  When you call us at (954) 998-0600, you let us work hard to leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”

Post-Fire Restoration Steps When SERVPRO Arrives at Hollywood Homes

12/31/2019 (Permalink)

A room with fire and soot damage that has a window overlooking a city. We know all the risks at hand when it comes to your Hollywood fire damage. Let SERVPRO help you.

SERVPRO will walk you through the restoration process for your Hollywood home.

There is no set of rules that can dictate how you are meant to behave or act after a fire has devastated your Hollywood home. Because of how damaging these situations can be and how time-sensitive the recovery of these situations is, it is essential to know what to expect when you have reached out to our SERVPRO team. We can arrive quickly to begin the initial walkthrough and damage assessment with the customer, which can help to dictate the entire restoration process based on the information collected from this preview.

If the fire department was involved, assessing fire damage to Hollywood homes might have to wait until these professionals have turned the property back over to the owner. This action indicates that the extinguishment process has completed, but also does not immediately grant access to our professionals or even the customer. The insurance company often needs an investigation conducted regarding the origin of the fire, and that can delay the initial mitigation tasks of our team.

As restoration professionals, our project managers are sensitive to the situation that our customers experience and work to make them as comfortable as possible. We want to get a thorough examination and documentation of existing effects and damage, but only if you are comfortable with that process. These steps might include speaking directly with our project manager to detail damage that you have recognized in the walkthrough and allowing our representative to take photographs of these damaged areas to document pre-restoration conditions.

Our walkthrough is not only to identify damages that exist but to help show our customers that they have placed their property in capable hands. We can keep our customers and technicians safe by documenting recognized safety hazards and potential threats like asbestos, mold, or other contaminants that could hinder production or create unsafe working environments.

A walkthrough with our customers is an important step to take after a fire. We want to help meet your expectations and wishes, and we can document everything your property needs to return to preloss condition. Give our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines team a call whenever disaster strikes at (954) 998-0600.

We Have Effective Techniques To Restore Your Hollywood Business After A Water Loss Incident

Cleaning Water Debris from your Hollywood Salon

Cleaning up after any water loss incident can be challenging, but when water saturations have allowed for structural degradation and collapse, cleaning your Hollywood salon is vital for recovery. There are no two identical restoration projects, and with the frequency of water loss incidents, our SERVPRO team remains on alert to reach these compromised properties as promptly as possible.

There are advantages to beginning water cleanup in Hollywood businesses quickly. Your salon, for example, has rows of expensive chairs to make clients accessible. Prolonged exposure to water can compromise the look and function of these chairs, making extraction and drying a priority of our professionals. Engineered flooring that simulates hardwood in the main work area of the salon can become irreparably damaged by the presence of excessive moisture and standing water. Failure to address these concerns quickly can also lead to a need for tear-out and reconstruction.

Because not all water damage incidents can happen in accessible areas, you might not be aware of a leak until the damage begins to show on the degrading drywall. The collapse of these materials at their heaviest and most saturated points is inevitable without the intervention of our experienced SERVPRO professionals. With controlled demolition techniques, our water restorers and general contractors can work simultaneously to dry out the area and prevent the further spread of saturation in the drywall. When exposed, our professionals can also address the breach in the plumbing that led to the water loss incident.

Removing insulation is another step in returning your salon to its original condition after a wall cavity water emergency. The time spent drying out insulation material is often more costly than removing it and replacing it. With openings which expose the framework and saturated insulation, it is easy to remove the material with specialized vacuums and replace it before we start the build back portion of our restoration effort.

Water loss incidents in your salon can compromise your ability to offer the hair and nail services your loyal customers expect, so you need to address these symptoms as quickly as possible. Our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines team can dry and clean up after water emergencies that threaten your business. Give us a call today at (954) 998-0600.

Drying Your Hollywood Home Without Moving Your Belongings

Water damage can happen to anyone. Whether you live in a condo or a single-family home, old or new, your home is always vulnerable to having a plumbing issue or a leak from windows and roofs. General upkeep of your property is always the best preventive measure, but emergencies happen, and the damage is inevitable. Although you may not be wading in deep water in your kitchen, the chances are that your water event requires a professional water cleanup service to achieve restoration as efficiently as possible. Quickly addressing the situation is of paramount importance if you want to minimize your losses.

If your home is in Hollywood and you require water cleanup services, SERVPRO is the team to call. Our technicians train in the classroom and on the field to remediate situations like yours, and their expertise is at your service as soon as you call our 24/7 hotline. Do not let time pass you by while your carpet and flooring soak in water. Your delay only positions your home for further damage and complications down the line.

As our SERVPRO crew surveys your home and takes note of the damage, we consider the different drying options available to us. Very often, the drying process involves partial or complete removal of items from your home, including carpets and carpet pads. However, we may also consider in-place drying if appropriate. This method has the advantage of being less disruptive and requires less movement of furniture, which in turn protects your carpet. However, it can also require additional drying time and labor. Thankfully, our technicians are well-versed on the intricacies of each drying method and can make an educated recommendation for your particular case. Most homeowners do not even realize that there are options beyond fans and wet/dry vacuums, which is why you need to reach out to a professional crew for optimal results.

SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines knows how to handle your emergency while lessening the disruption to your home and family. All you need to do is contact (954) 998-0600 and allow us the opportunity to work for you. Together we can leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”

Our Cleaning Efforts Are Suitable To All Fire Damaged Surfaces In Your Pembroke Pines Home

11/3/2019 (Permalink)

A kitchen burned in a fire with soot and smoke damage We have the experience, advanced training, and state-of-the-art equipment to restore your home to pre-damage conditions after fire damage.

It’s not all Smoke and Mirrors

It may not take a long time for a candle to light a curtain or holiday decoration on fire, for the smell to reach you and for you to extinguish the flames with a household extinguisher. However, even that small burst can cause fire damage well beyond the curtain or decoration. Each fire has its path, and its surrounding environment can play an essential role in its impact. Calling a professional team gives you the best chance at achieving a successful restoration process, specific to the needs of your home.

SERVPRO technicians train to understand the intricacies of fire damage to your Pembroke Pines home. Most people understand fire damage in the context of residual soot and smoke. What most ignore is that the composition of each surface touched by the flames determines the characteristics and spread of the ensuing residue. In turn, our technicians need to understand these subtle differences so our cleaning efforts are suitable to each surface. Failure to match surface and cleaner may result in additional damage to your home.

Natural materials, such as wood, tend to leave a cloud of fine dust around your home, even traveling through air conditioning vents. Synthetic materials leave a somewhat sticky residue on your belongings, which requires a different approach. Our SERVPRO team has the knowledge and expertise to make educated decisions when choosing cleaning and disinfecting agents. When the item is beyond restoration, we consult with you and decide on its disposal. Our goal, like yours, is to minimize the financial burden of replacing all items presenting fire damage.

As we go about identifying and restoring your home, we take precautions to contain the damage as much as possible. Containment efforts may include blocking an area of your home to store some of the items not requiring our services. Once we salvage all we can, we work with you to return everything to its rightful place.

SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines is a reputable fire restoration company ready to help you in your time of need. All you need to do is call us at (954) 998-0600 and let us leave your home “Like it never even happened.”

Preparing For Flood Damage Is Crucial This Hurricane Season In Hollywood

10/26/2019 (Permalink)

water damage to living room Our goal is to leave your property, “Like it never even happened.”

Prepare for Flood Damage During Hurricane Season In Hollywood

Homeowners in Florida are well-versed in preparing their homes for the rainy season. Even before the hurricane season officially opens, you can already find publications highlighting resources for when disaster strikes. For better or worse, history has taught us to prepare for water events. The City of Hollywood also prepares its residents with information about its specific risks, particularly as it pertains to flooding due to storm surge. Part of that preparation process includes understanding the potential impact of outside water coming into your home. Knowing what to expect and anticipating its effects is essential to minimizing its impact on your life and finances.

SERVPRO is your local restoration specialist when there is flood damage to your Hollywood home. Floodwaters carry debris that may pose a threat to your home and family. Aside from the more substantial items, a flood can bring with it, such as tree branches and construction materials, the water can also bring invisible residues into your home. Bacteria, sewage, and even pesticides can all make their way into your house as a result of the storm.

Our SERVPRO team is active as soon as the area is safe to enter. Our command center is available 24/7, so we arrive at your home as soon as possible. Upon arrival, our technicians wear personal protective equipment to create a barrier between them and any potential hazard, all beginning a thorough assessment of the damage. By using specialized industry equipment, we determine just how much moisture and debris are in your home, and we work on a specific plan to remove it. We may use truck-mounted pumps, submersible pumps, and even smaller extraction wands to optimize all water extraction, all while closely monitoring humidity levels.

In the case of flooding, our SERVPRO technicians also apply their professional knowledge to disinfect your home. We clean each surface with solutions specific to its composition, keeping in mind the distinct needs of wood, laminates, and other building materials. As a homeowner, you need to trust that we are experts in our field and allow us to work on restoring your home as soon as possible.

SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines is an expert in the mitigation of flood damage. Call our professionals at (954) 998-0600 and allow us to be part of your hurricane preparedness efforts. Our goal is to leave your property, “Like it never even happened.”

A Surprising Tool to Help You Bounce Back from Fire Damage in Hollywood

10/19/2019 (Permalink)

fire damaged home Call SERVPRO today to remediate any fire damage your Hollywood home might have had.

Fire Damage Response Proceeds More Smoothly with a Pack-Out in Hollywood

No one can argue that a Hollywood house fire causes chaos. Coping with the mess and the debris after a blaze is extremely challenging both for the homeowner and the crisis recovery company you engage to assist you on your road back to preloss condition. Because of the sense of loss you feel, it can be overwhelming to consider moving items off the property during the recovery project. A professional pack-out can be beneficial for both structural remediation and contents restoration.

Proven Mitigation Method

Removing furnishings, household goods, and personal possessions provide a foundation for efficient fire damage mitigation in Hollywood residences. Although packing items up and transporting them might seem like an inconvenience, taking the time to clear out affected spaces allows our team to work on resolving fire damage within your dwelling unimpeded. We can then remove the fire-fighting water and move forward with smoke and soot cleanup without the delays occurring because of the need to reposition furnishings and other articles repeatedly during the project.

Safe, Secure, and Well-Documented 

SERVPRO utilizes a detailed pack-out Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) to track and process the items, large and small. Digital photography and barcoding join traditional listings to ensure that we account for everything. When we collaborate with your insurance company, we can communicate the severity of damage and justify the steps needed to restore the items. Reliable claim payment means your out of pocket expenses are limited at this stressful time.

Specialized Equipment, Products, and Methods 

Innovative cleaning, deodorization, and drying technologies enhance our ability to return treasured items to function and appearance. Possessions you feared ruined by the fire damage are restored to preloss condition. SERVPRO uses freeze-drying for papers and pictures, industrial washing and drying equipment for clothing and other soft items, and small drying chambers for furnishings, among other targeted approaches. We store the processed property in our climate-controlled warehouse, awaiting transport back to your remediated dwelling, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines handles all aspects of residential fire damage with confidence, relying on industry best practice training, skill, and experience. Call us at (954) 998-0600 to schedule an assessment, create a project plan, and begin immediate implementation.

Pembroke Pines Emergency Ready Plan (ERP)

10/11/2019 (Permalink)

Silver cell phone showing the ERP app on a green background. Let SERVPRO prepare you for your Pembroke Pines Emergency Ready Plan.

We will get your Pembroke Pines home ready for anything.

The Pembroke Pines area features many condominiums and apartments, managed by professionals on behalf of the owners. Part time residents spend time in South Florida as well as other places in the country or abroad. If water, fire, storm, mold, or other emergency occurs that threatens damage to one or more apartments or condos, we have a solution that assists the residential or commercial property management company.

By working with SERVPRO® of East Pembroke Pines to develop your personalized Emergency READY Profile your property or business will receive the benefit of over 40 years of experience in reducing the impact of any natural or man-made disaster.  SERVPRO® is a leader in water and fire damage response and can help you get your Pembroke Pines and Hollywood FL area property back in working order.

Preparedness Is Vital

As beautiful and serene as Pembroke Pines appears, disaster can occur with little notice. Seasonal storms, plumbing leaks, and appliance malfunctions might expose a condo or apartment complex to water damage. Shorts in the electrical system, a kitchen fire, or a knocked-over candle can engulf a residential building in flames. Hidden or unaddressed water losses often fuel a mold outbreak that can move through building cavities to involve more than the owner or tenant’s residential or commercial property. Our Emergency Ready Plan (ERP) can prepare our team to limit the damage quickly.

The Emergency Ready Plan and Profile 

SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines can anticipate our response to a possible emergency when damage befalls an apartment or condo. We accomplish this by creating an Emergency Ready Plan and Profile (ERP) tailor-made for each property. We adapt our considerable skills and knowledge of the tasks needed to achieve success in the restoration industry to the particular needs of an entire building or an individual living or workspace as the case presents.

The Walk-Through

Prior to any actual destruction, a Pembroke Pines or Hollywood Florida area building manager or owner can request a no-obligation assessment from one of our SERVPRO team members. We inspect the premises, sketching out spaces, and locate individual and building utility shutoffs. A compilation of blueprints for the units, storage areas, and ancillary spaces such as parking or outbuildings and digital photos help us grasp what we face if a disaster does occur.

The Recommendations

If we identify potential vulnerabilities, we communicate suggestions to adapt to lessen the impact if a disaster happens. Different decisions concerning storage areas, repair of aging plumbing and appliances, or specifics like reconsidering the use of extension cords or space heaters might all avoid a potential crisis. 

The ERP Profile

Building managers or owners use the SERVPRO mobile app to fill in the details. Contact information for vendors and contractors who installed or developed systems help us sort out issues during mitigation and remediation. Designating other individuals to act on your behalf if you cannot be present helps both landlords and property management companies. 

You can rely on SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines to work with business owners and property managers ahead of a crisis, including complicated scenarios like multi-unit housing complexes including condos and apartments where disasters can impact more than one unit. 

SERVPRO’s Emergency Ready Plan and Profile (ERP) is an excellent opportunity for our team to collaborate with your property  management to prepare for water, fire, storm, or other events. You hope never to use the ERP plan but benefit from a fast and focused response if a crisis happens. Call us at (954) 998-0600 to answer your questions and set up a free ERP assessment.

SERVPRO is the Choice to Meet All Your Restoration Needs in Hollywood

There is no getting around how stressful and traumatic loss incidents can be to a Hollywood home, no matter if it involves water, fire, storms, or mold. We are a locally owned and operated facility that has chosen a hands-on approach to help our customers through every situation they face. That commitment travels from our field technicians up to the owner of the company, Morena Fenero. By hearing the customer’s concerns and opinions and applying them in real-time, we were able to revolutionize our presence when people need us. We are now a transitional piece between restoring a home and restoring the lives of our customers after a loss. 

Storm

Storms can strike our area with a destructive force that can level Hollywood homes and businesses. We know how devastating these circumstances can be, especially when your property gets exposed to damaging conditions like flooding and structural degradation. We can quickly mobilize to provide your home or business with efficient practices for addressing the immediate threats of a storm and the variety of problems that can occur in the days following this loss incident.

We are an experienced division of professionals capable of recovering even significant losses to the large businesses throughout Hollywood and its surrounding areas. We spent 9 continuous weeks restoring both homes and businesses throughout the panhandle when Hurricane Michael tore through the state in 2018. We worked around the clock to show that our restoration tactics, products, and personnel were greater than the destructive hand of Mother Nature.

We invest in state-of-the-art equipment that can quickly restore and recover flooded Hollywood properties. We have advanced extraction tools such as our truck-mount pumps and our portable electric sump pumps. We also have practical cleaning tools for debris and sediment removal, like power washers and our line of potent SERVPRO and OSHA-Approved cleaning products.  

Mold

With the frequency of mold remediation jobs that our SERVPRO team has undertaken in the years that our franchise has been serving the Hollywood area, it has become a vital requirement that the majority of our team have accreditations through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT.) Even our owner Morena Fenero has a state license for both Mold Remediation and Indoor Air Quality Testing.

Many of our hands-on technicians also have secondary endorsements through the IICRC for water restoration niches like applied structural drying. This additional training helps us to address both the cause and the effect of mold growth in Hollywood homes and provides our customers with lasting solutions to address recurring threats. We strive to remove the current growth with effective practices like dry ice and soda blasting. We also work to prevent further moisture penetration, install water diversion implements, or encourage the continued use of dehumidifiers.

We work to quickly gain control of a mold damage situation in Hollywood homes by utilizing our premier equipment. Units like our FLIR camera can help to identify moisture pockets that could meet the needs for mold growth. After locating the growth, we work to establish containment barriers from the time that we first arrive to reduce the potential for cross-contamination as work gets underway. Your home and your family are our utmost priorities in mold remediation tasks.

Fire

There are many obstacles that our team must overcome when addressing fire loss situations in Hollywood homes. Among the first steps that our team must address when we arrive is the need for debris removal and structural analysis. We have to determine what your property needs and how we can protect unaffected areas of your house while mitigation tactics get underway. Our installation of containment barriers and use of air filtration devices can help to regulate the movement and migration of hazardous effects like soot, smoke, and odors.

Even with small situations that do not envelop your entire Hollywood property, there are still widespread effects that must get addressed like odors. We have multiple approaches to address odor concerns after a fire. We can utilize tools like ozone machines and thermal foggers to break down odor compounds and neutralize these scents a molecular level. Tools like hydroxyl generators can simultaneously work to reduce airborne particulate threats and odors at the same time.

We always have a restore before replacing mentality, which can help to save our customers money and time on the fire restoration of their Hollywood home needs. With tools like soda blasters, we can remove surface sediment and marring on charred materials without compromising the substrate. By protecting these materials where they get installed, we can better keep our efforts within budgetary confinements of either our customer or the insurance provider.

Water

Water losses are among the most common of the service requests that our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines answer for Hollywood homes and businesses. Because of the frequency of these incidents, our technicians pursue continuous in-house training to introduce our team to the latest equipment, practices, and products available to make water loss recovery more efficient.

Our objective is to eliminate the potential for further degradation and deterioration of your Hollywood home by responding immediately to the emergency. We keep trailers stocked with our trash pumps, air movers, dehumidifiers, and other structural drying tools to begin reducing moisture immediately upon our arrival. These conditions might become when left unchecked for several days. Our prompt response with moisture detection tools like our FLIR camera can ensure that our team knows the location of dampness pockets. We begin addressing these areas with our drying efforts. We choose the most non-invasive pathways to dry out materials, contents, and structural cavities in your home. 

Part of our commitment to our customers is answering their questions and concerns as they arise. We know that you are going to have concerns and priorities when emergencies occur, and part of our commitment to your satisfaction is addressing these concerns first. We can walk you through restoration and keep you at ease throughout these steps to come.

As much as you have a choice in the area for restoration services, our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines team has your home and your family as our utmost priority. We have a deep inventory of recovery tools and a fast response, helping us to make all loss incidents “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (954) 998-0600.

Why Choose SERVPRO After Water Losses in Hollywood

Hurricanes like Dorian have the potential to leave a considerable mess in their aftermath for Hollywood homeowners to address. As much as many residents here have become less alarmed by the destructive hand of Mother Nature, there are still steps that must get taken quickly before these effects in your home get out of control. Water damage is especially problematic, as it can continue to change the composition of exposed materials until they have bloated, warped, and distorted from their original appearance and shape.

Knowing how to handle water damage in Hollywood homes is a skillset often reserved for trained professionals like our SERVPRO team. Many homeowners and property owners seek to perform remediation and restoration tasks on their own following a disaster like a hurricane, but soon discover that the problem is more widespread and deeply rooted than they might have initially believed. Our team has the equipment and the experience to help you.

The priority of our professionals dispatched to your water loss incident is to get moisture and standing water dried up as promptly as possible. Regardless of the severity of these incidents, our professionals have the leading equipment in the industry to provide an efficient and effective response. From extractors like portable sump pumps and weighted remote extraction units to our rapid drying air movers and drying mats, we can make these emergencies “Like it never even happened.”

In addition to the prompt mitigation work that we can begin in a home following our arrival, we also have a team of licensed remediation specialists that can help to address potential mold and microbial threats that can develop within days of flooding and water loss incidents. Especially in situations where homeowners have attempted cleanup and recovery on their own, the likelihood of mold growth increases exponentially. We can help with our SERVPRO line of antimicrobial products approved by both the EPA and OSHA for environmental friendliness and potency.

As overwhelming and stressful as water loss incidents can be, especially after natural disasters have already occurred, you need the experience and confidence of our qualified SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines technicians. We're here to help when you call (954) 998-0600.

Water Damaged Hallway Commercial water loss events can shudder your business. Call SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines to get your business running smoothly again.

Safety Is Our First Priority 

Hollywood offers many quaint restaurants and eateries, catering to the many locals and tourists that come to enjoy the beach every day. If you own one of these establishments, you may worry about the ongoing discussion regarding rising sea levels, along with the possibility of rain and storms natural to the area. Aside from the elements, you are also vulnerable to a broken pipe or an overflowing appliance. The result is that at the end of the day, you would do well in identifying a professional service to call upon should a water event happen at your restaurant. 

For commercial water removal in Hollywood, SERVPRO is here to help. Our round-the-clock availability goes hand-in-hand with mitigating your losses. The longer water seeps into your walls, furniture, and displays, the more complex the water removal process becomes. Our water restoration technicians (WRT) train to perform an efficient operation to restore your eatery as soon as possible. Like you, we aim to mitigate the time and money lost to this disaster. 

As much as you would like to start immediately in removing water from your place, it is best to wait for our SERVPRO crew to assess the damage. In water removal situations, there are many safety concerns, and evaluating the integrity of your diner is essential. Aside from wearing personal protective equipment (gloves, overalls, goggles), our team carefully looks over your site to spot potential hazards. Dangers could include water collected in electrical elements such as lamps and cords, mold growth resulting from overexposure to humidity, and the nature of the water seeping through your restaurant.  If there is a potential for contaminated water, our technicians act accordingly to remediate it.

Water Damage Exposes Your Residents to Risks

When water damage affects Hollywood residents in need of supportive residential services, a speedy response is essential.

If the water is allowed to remain soaked into structural components and contents for more than a short time floor building materials crumble, weaken, and break down. Mold and mildew can take hold after 24 to 48 hours. Residents’ personal possessions can be damaged or ruined. 

We Train to Learn Effective Water Mitigation and Remediation Techniques 

The day to day cleaning and maintenance skills your housekeeping staff has is no match for the specialized requirements of water mitigation and remediation. SERVPRO crews not only master specific training from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), teaching us how to remove water fast and dry out spaces thoroughly, we also have the commercial-grade equipment, tools, and products to make it happen.

We Work Hard to Minimize Disruptions

Let us show you all the reasons Why SERVPRO can help Pembroke Pines.

We know the works for Pembroke Pines

In 2014, Pembroke Pines earned accolades as the Best City for Hispanic Entrepreneurs, and our SERVPRO team was proud to be a part of this reputation and dynamic forming. Because we know how scary and uncomfortable loss incidents can be, we work hard not just to fix the problems that you have but to help you understand each phase of the process. Communication is the most substantial bridge that we can build to our customer base, and we have ensured that this begins at our highest levels. Our owner, Morena D. Fenero, works directly with our customers to put their minds at ease. 

Fire 

We understand the apprehensions that can come with fire loss – like the fear that your home or business is never going to look or feel the same way again. Many are also concerned with the cost of the restoration, which can lead to dragging their feet on securing professional restoration services for fire damage in Pembroke Pines properties. Our SERVPRO team can work directly with our customers to ensure that everyone is on the same page, the job gets completed to budgetary limitations, and that we work directly alongside insurance providers covering the house when possible. 

We have a growing roster of Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) certified through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) These same professionals receive ongoing training regularly to be the most efficient and knowledgeable in this niche of the industry, and many pursue further endorsements to help Pembroke Pines homes and businesses in fire recovery tasks, such as: 

  • Carpet Cleaning (CCT)
  • Odor Control (OCT)
  • Water Restoration (WRT)
  • Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning (UFT)

Our unit thrives because of the investments that we make back into the advanced equipment and products we use. We have soda blasters and automated scrubbing units that can minimize surface damage while addressing residues and smoke damages. We are also a comprehensive restoration team, offering even complex and full-scale reconstruction and repair when fire-damaged Pembroke Pines homes require it. 

Mold

We invest our time, resources, and profits back into sciences and equipment that improve the effectiveness of our mold remediation program. Our knowledge of this niche of the restoration industry begins at our highest level with our owner Morena Fenero, who has a license through the state for both Mold Remediation and Indoor Air Quality Testing. This experience leading our team can ensure that every mold damage instance in Pembroke Pines properties gets addressed adequately and without delay. 

Overcoming the moisture concerns present in mold scenarios is the priority of our Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) and WRT certified personnel addressing mold damage in Pembroke Pines homes. Because of this focus from the time that our technicians first arrive to a microbial threat, we utilize cutting-edge discovery devices such as FLIR thermal cameras, moisture sensors, and hygrometers. We can also devote this time to containment strategies as well to reduce cross-contamination and the further spread of active mold spores. 

By prioritizing water damage, we can more easily transition to effective remediation strategies like dry ice and soda blasting that can effectively eliminate spores and the organism from hosting materials without further damaging the substrate. With our continued education and focus on customer satisfaction, we can make any mold damage scenario in Pembroke Pines properties “Like it never even happened.” 

Storm

We know how destructive hurricanes and tropical storms can be, as our team spent a continuous 9 weeks working around the clock to help countless homes and businesses after Hurricane Michael decimated the panhandle region in 2018. With this hands-on experience to the worst of what Mother Nature can do, we stay vigilantly prepared for any threat that can impact the homes and businesses of Pembroke Pines. 

Our commitment to providing every customer with an entirely satisfactory result has allowed our team to pursue full-scale build back and reconstruction efforts for storm damage in Pembroke Pines residences. We offer emergency services that can help immediately upon the arrival of our SERVPRO professionals, including boarding up all exposed areas, installing roof tarps for breaches, and packing out damaged or “at-risk” contents of your property.

As this is one of the most active divisions of our SERVPRO team, we continuously train both in house and in classrooms to determine the best approaches, most efficient equipment, and the least costly strategies for restoring water damage in Pembroke Pines properties. Combining this education and drive for customer satisfaction with our open line of communication with our clients, we can create custom restoration plans suited to the severity of the present damage and the size of your property. 

We know that you have questions and concerns whenever it is your Pembroke Pines property getting restored, and we take the time to answer them.

Our owner personally sees to the interaction with affected families so that we can set aside as much time as you need to get your questions and concerns answered. 

Our team relies heavily on sophisticated equipment that can help us to quickly and confidently address water damage in Pembroke Pines properties, including:

8/12/2019 (Permalink)

Estamos aquí para ayudarlo a enfrentar el daño de la tormenta.

La Tormenta Está Entrando su Casa

Las tormentas son la norma durante los meses de verano en Pembroke Pines. Incluso cuando no hay un daño generalizado, algunas comunidades se ven profundamente afectadas por las tormentas de la temporada. Como propietario, podría perder electricidad, perder algunas ramas en su jardín e incluso detectar una filtración en su techo. Sin embargo, sólo se necesita un sistema de alcantarillado sobresaturado para hacer que el agua se acumule cerca de sus puertas y entre a su hogar, dañando sus alfombras y pisos.

Cuando ocurra un daño por inundación en su hogar de Pembroke Pines, los servicios professionales de nuestro equipo de SERVPRO son fuente de tranquilidad. Nuestro equipo de guardia está disponible las 24 horas del día, los 7 días de la semana para responder a su emergencia y brindar nuestra experiencia para restaurar su hogar lo antes posible.

Una vez que realice una llamada a nuestro equipo SERVPRO, puede tomar algunas medidas mientras espera nuestra llegada. Por ejemplo, si es seguro, puede salir y rastrillar las hojas y los escombros, lo que hace que el agua acumulada en el sistema de alcantarillado drene correctamente en lugar de filtrarse en su hogar. También puede tratar de absorber un poco de agua con una aspiradora si la tiene, o comenzar a usar ventiladores o deshumidificadores si los tiene disponibles. Cuando lleguemos, podemos utilizar equipos especializados para acelerar el proceso de extracción y secado.

Incluso si siente que su hogar está seco después de sus esfuerzos, siempre debe permitir que nuestros professionales de SERVPRO utilicen equipo de grado industrial para medir los niveles de humedad. Mediante el uso de la tecnología de infrarrojos e higrómetros, podemos detectar el agua incluso si no es evidente a simple vista. Una inspección completa ayuda a prevenir futuras complicaciones derivadas del agua estancada que se deja desatendida. Al mismo tiempo, podemos aplicar soluciones de grado industrial para desinfectar las superficies que han estado en contacto con las aguas, las cuales tienden a transportar bacterias y deshechos a su hogar.

SERVPRO in Action for Flood Mitigation in Pembroke Pines

Storm Waters Are Knocking at Your Pembroke Pines Door

Storms are the norm during the summer months in Pembroke Pines. Even when there is no widespread damage, some communities are deeply affected by seasonal storms. As a homeowner, you could lose power, lose some branches in your yard, and even spot a leak in your roof. However, it only takes an oversaturated sewage system to cause water to accumulate close to your doors and make its way into your carpets and flooring.

Fast Service Means Rapid Results and Storm Damage Mitigation
When flood damage happens to your Pembroke Pines home, you can be reassured by the professional services our SERVPRO crew offers.  Our on-call team is available 24/7 to respond to your emergency and lend our expertise to restoring your home as soon as possible. Quick action helps prevent oversaturation of structural elements in your home such as drywall, as well as the loss of furniture and personal belongings.

A few DIY Tips Until We Arrive
Once you place a call into our SERVPRO team, call your insurance company to send out an adjuster, and then you can take some actions as you await our arrival. For instance, if it is safe, you can head outside and rake leaves and debris, causing the backup in the sewage system to encourage the water to drain rather than seep into your home.  You can also attempt to soak up some of the water with a wet/dry vacuum if you have it, or start any fans or dehumidifiers you may have in your home. When we arrive, we can use specialized equipment to speed up the extraction and drying process.

Advanced Detection Devices Leave No Surprises
Even if you feel like your home is dry after your efforts, you should always let our professional SERVPRO team use our industry-grade equipment to measure humidity levels. By using infrared technology and hygrometers, we can detect water even if it is not visible to the naked eye. A complete inspection helps prevent future complications resulting from standing water left unattended. Simultaneously we can apply industry-grade solutions to disinfect surfaces that have been in touch with storm waters, which tend to carry bacteria and pollutants from the outside into your home.

SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines is your best resource when there is storm damage to your home. Do not delay in calling  us at (954) 998-0600 and let our expert team leave your property "Like it never even happened."

Your Ability to Handle Flooding in Your Hollywood Residence

7/21/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO will restore you Hollywood home from flooding.

Let us help you with your Hollywood home flooding.

DIY work in your Hollywood home often boils down to a self-reflection into the limitations of your skills in these repairs against what must occur to restore your home entirely. After widespread instances like flooding, the damage can feel insurmountable, yet with the right equipment and expertise, you can quickly have the effects dried out and things back to normal. Whenever disaster strikes, it is essential to assess your ability to handle the flooding and how widespread moisture and saturation effects could be. 

As you might already know, flood damage in Hollywood homes is often much more than contending with standing water and drying up saturated structural elements. There are multiple factors at play in the recovery of these situations, and addressing them all individually can be a substantial challenge. Much like our SERVPRO professionals who can work to restore this harm to the property efficiently, it critical to address several effects simultaneously through leading equipment homeowners can often rent from hardware stores. 

Professional restoration that our SERVPRO team provides is much more than just advanced tools and products that we use to return a flood-damaged home to its original condition, though many of the residential-grade versions of these tools like hydroxyl machines, air scrubbers, extraction equipment, and air movers can often get rented from chain hardware stores in your area. 

With the acquisition of several useful tools instrumental in combating standing water and saturation, not to mention the potential threats of contamination from groundwater penetrating the property, you can begin to address these concerns within hours of the damage occurring. If the situation still feels too large for you to handle on your own, our professionals are standing by to help at a moment’s notice with our inventory of recovery tools and our hands-on restoration experience. 

We know how traumatic flooding can be in your home, and how vital it is to get these situations corrected as promptly as possible. No matter when disaster strikes, or how severe they can become, our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines team is standing by to help whenever you need us. Give us a call today at (954) 998-0600.

Pembroke Pines Office Called SERVPRO for Professional Mold Cleanup

6/27/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Says We Can Remediate Mold Damage and Restoration for Our Pembroke Pines Neighbors

Commercial Mold Damage Remediation in Pembroke Pines Office Complex

When there is commercial mold damage, it is often a symptom of a more significant issue such as a leak or poor ventilation. Remediation of the mold issue usually involves handling either plumbing, ventilation, or other moisture retention issue within a property.

SERVPRO answered a call to remediate a Pembroke Pines commercial mold damage in a breakroom of an office building. The employees noticed a musty odor and upon removing some ceiling tiles, located a pipe with a slow leak and actively growing mold colonies on the wood framing beams in the ceiling.

SERVPRO technicians contained the breakroom to inhibit any further spread of spores. We scoped the breakroom and located no other areas of excessive moisture or mold colonies other than the ceiling area. The office had the pipe repaired before our arrival, so the continued release of water was no longer happening. The acoustical, porous ceiling tiles showed signs of mold damage and could not be cleaned, so we discarded them with the permission of the property owner. We set up air movers to completely dry the mold colonies in the ceiling area. Once the humidity levels dropped to around forty percent, we moved on to the next step in the mold remediation process.

We have several methods for treating mold colonies; in this case, our technicians chose to use soda blasting to remove the mold from the wood. This method involves directing a stream of bicarbonate soda (also known as baking soda) at the dried mold colonies. Because it is a mild abrasive, it removes the mold without harming the surface of the wood underneath.

After blasting, SERVPRO technicians cleaned the area with handheld vacuums with HEPA filters to capture airborne spores and particulates and stop any further spreading. Then we wiped surfaces down with our powerful anti-fungal solutions to inhibit any redevelopment of mold in the future.

As soon as the discovery of a mold colony happens, remediation efforts should begin. Call SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines at (954) 998-0600; our certified experts are available 24/7 to make the issue "Like it never even happened."

After A Flood Our Crew Provides Pack-Out Services And Claim Inventories For Your Pembroke Pines Home

5/23/2019 (Permalink)

For minor to severe property damages, contact SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines at (954) 998-0600.

Pack-Out Services And Claim Inventories For Severe Flood Damage In Pembroke Pines

Excessive quantities of water in the home caused by flooding can sometimes be considered a significant emergency. The presence of moisture can weaken ceilings, flooring, or other areas and, in the cases of road overflow, for example, can be contaminated with pathogens and harmful to the health. It is rare that a flood issue results in relocation, and in most scenarios, we can quarantine the affected zone. However, sometimes we may need to perform a full pack-out service as well as preparing the site for general contractors.

We offer a pack-out service for homeowners with severe flood damage in Pembroke Pines. This service involves removing all furnishings and possessions to an external storage facility. We can use this option if flood water is wide-spread throughout the home or major remodeling work is necessary to get the property back to preloss conditions. At an external storage facility, we can also treat items to advanced restoration technology.

Possessions that are dense and have been affected by black water or otherwise contaminated can benefit from ultrasonic immersion cleaning. These technology use sound waves to agitatedly clean items of significant value. Fabrics or other materials can be subjected to mechanical cleaning restoration. Esporta washing machines operated by SERVPRO can remove up to 99% of soiling from fabrics or garments.

SERVPRO technicians use a Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) for pack-outs to ensure that all your items are recorded safely and stored correctly. We can document salvageable items as well as those that are unsalvageable. Equally, we can record which rooms each item have come from so that we can return them to their correct places at the end of service.

Another benefit of the CCIS system is that we can pass on all the recorded information to your insurance adjuster at the end of service. This ensures that you do not need to spend further time filling out claim forms in what is already a stressful and time-consuming situation.

For minor to severe property damages, contact SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines at (954) 998-0600.

A Power Surge Can Wreak Havoc in Your Home if You're Not Careful

5/13/2019 (Permalink)

We are your ally when fire damage strikes.

Fire Damage in Pembroke Pines Residential Homes

Accidents happen regularly, and we always hope they do not happen to us. Surprisingly, things might happen even as we watch, only to surprise us with their severity and reach. For example, a surge protector may malfunction and fail to prevent an electrical fire that slowly smolders computers, television sets, and other appliances. When you finally smell the resulting smoke, it may be too late to prevent fire damage and its consequences.

Fire damage can happen even in Pembroke Pines, where construction is newer than in other parts of South Florida. As overwhelming as it may seem, enlisting the help of our SERVPRO team makes the process more manageable and succinct, so your life goes back to normal as soon as possible. All you need to do is call our 24/7 line and let our team take control of the situation.

As you regard the layers of melted electronics draped over your furniture you may wonder how our SERVPRO crew determines an action plan. Our success responds to our training and experience and knowledge that not all surfaces are created equal. Understanding the best cleaning and disinfecting solutions based on the composition of each material is essential to thorough fire damage restoration. Organic materials (wood and other natural sources) differ from synthetic ones (polymers and plastics), and we take this into account as we work on your property.

Aside from the smoke and soot remains, fires typically leave behind soaking flooring and furniture in response to the efforts of firefighters. Our SERVPRO staff is quick to determine what we can salvage and what we need to remove from the premises. Furthermore, we dispose of these items following local guidelines and regulations which may not be known to you. This industry expertise is what allows us to mitigate your losses despite the disaster.

SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines is your ally in the face of disaster. Call us at (954) 998-0600 and let us leave your home “Like it never even happened.”

When Fire Damage is on the Anniversary Dinner Menu in Pembroke Pines

Don't let fire damage ruin your anniversary! Call SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines today!

Mitigating Fire Damage After A Pembroke Pines Kitchen Fire

Anniversary dinners at home can be the perfect occasion for breaking out your favorite recipes. However, when an accidental fire crops up on the stove while you're making your signature chicken parmesan, you may end up garnishing your dish with the kitchen fire extinguisher instead of the usual Italian parsley. With much of the potential fire damage mitigated, you now have the problem of fire extinguisher residue cleanup as well. This residue can corrode surfaces in your home if left alone, and without stringent cleanup after contact, it can irritate the skin as well. Make sure not to sweep up fire extinguisher particles, as they can aerosolize these irritating particles and create an even bigger mess to clean. 

If fire damage in your Pembroke Pines home dampens your anniversary dinner plans with a loved one, the certified professionals at SERVPRO are ready to restore your kitchen and leave it looking, as we like to say: "Like it never even happened." Our team possesses industrial grade materials, including deodorization equipment and tools for cleaning your vents, so we can address every nook and cranny in your kitchen that may have fallen victim to fire-related residues. 

SERVPRO technicians know that, when it comes to addressing odors from a protein fire, the first step is to eliminate residue from surfaces. Not only can we clean up nearly invisible protein fire residue from surfaces to mitigate foul odors, but we are also equipped to sweep up fire extinguisher residue and address tough-to-clean spots with EPA-registered antimicrobial disinfectants. 

After cleaning, our technicians are equipped with dry foggers to address fire-related odors and keep your kitchen as fresh and clean as it was pre-fire. We can also clean up your kitchen vents with vacuums and agitating tools to knock out hard-to-reach soot and prevent odor from proliferating in your home. 

SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines is here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to mitigate damage from any disaster. If your home requires our services to restore your home to its pre-fire condition, give us a call today at (954) 998-0600.

Keeping Fire Damage off the Menu of Your Pembroke Pines Restaurant

4/16/2019 (Permalink)

Kitchen fires in restaurants occur each day. Call SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines to remediate the damage.

Failed Plumbing Can Leave Your Clothing Boutique in Urgent Need of Water Removal Services

Restaurants have all the crucial factors for fires to start. With their cumbersome cooking processes, heating equipment, deep fryers, electrical wiring, and flammable materials, the chances of a fire starting are high. According to the National Fire Protection Association, cooking equipment causes about 61 percent of restaurant fires.  

A fire can result in the loss of customers, inventory, revenue and equipment like ice makers and drink machines. The commercial fire damage in your Pembroke Pines restaurant can get worse due to the presence of flammable elements like rubbish or clutter in the immediate area. The stored food may be destroyed or rendered unusable because of the infiltration of soot or smoke. After a fire, your restaurant may also get unfavorable reviews online. Once the fire is put out, you can restore your establishment to its pre-fire damage condition quickly by contacting the fire restoration professionals at SERVPRO.  

Here at SERVPRO, we know that a quick response prevents additional and further damage to a structure and its contents. Our priority is to get you back in business. When we arrive at a fire-damaged property, we first perform testing to determine where the smoke residues are situated. When we see the residues, we concentrate on the effects of the smoke on various items and the procedures that can be used to remove the smoke from the affected items.  

Sometimes, smoke residues on ceilings, walls and other surfaces are not noticeable. In these cases, testing enables us to verify that smoke residues are present by observing the contrast between the affected and unaffected areas. Our fire damage restoration services include removing soot and smoke from all surfaces, water removal, and drying if water is present, cleaning and sanitizing. Our technicians use state-of-the-art equipment like fogging devices and air scrubbing equipment to remove smoke and odors from affected areas. We also use air movers and dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air.  

When dealing with fire damage in your restaurant, SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines is the right firm to contact. We can handle the damage to make it look “Like it never even happened.” Call us any time at (954) 998-0600 for prompt fire restoration services.

At SERVPRO, we care about your family's precious home and will work around the clock to restore it back to preloss condition.

Water Damage in a New Home in Pembroke Pines

One of the most attractive features of living in Pembroke Pines is that there is plenty of new construction for purchase or lease. New developments feature larger closets and community spaces, as well as peace of mind regarding repairs. When your appliances and roof are new, you breathe a little easier knowing it is unlikely that your savings will go to replace them. However, this does not mean that you are guaranteed an accident-free life. It is not uncommon for a leak to happen once all units in your complex are occupied, or a small roof leak to create trouble inside your townhome.

For big or small water damage to your new unit in Pembroke Pines, SERVPRO is here ready to help. Our team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to your emergency, and we do so by sending our certified technicians to assess the damage to your property quickly. Even when you are reaching out to any outstanding warranties, you want to hear the expert opinion of our team to inform you of the extent of the damage to your home.

When water is behind the damage to your home, our SERVPRO crew works to remove the extra humidity as soon as possible. Standing water and excess moisture both work to saturate the structure of your home and can be breeding grounds for mold and bacteria, so time is of the essence. Our hygrometers let us monitor the moisture in the air as we use dehumidifiers and extractors to remove excess humidity. Throughout the process, we document our observations, which may come in helpful when filing a claim with your insurance carrier.

Even when your home is brand new, SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines is here to help you protect it. Our team knows how to deal with water emergencies of all sizes as we mitigate your losses. Call us at (954) 998-0600 and let us leave your home "Like it never even happened."

Professional Mold Damage Remediation is a Must for Pembroke Pines Hotels

Your Pembroke Pines housekeeping staff might be the best in the business, but persistent microbial growth easily gets out of hand even when rooms and common areas receive top-notch cleaning. This is because mold growth is not necessarily associated with a lack of upkeep. Other factors contribute to mold infestations, and skilled remediation teams who specialize in responding to these factors have a much better chance of controlling a hotel mold outbreak.

Mold damage in your Pembroke Pines hotel starts with opportunistic mold spores that float and settle everywhere. As long as these tiny fungi “seeds” do not absorb water, they cause no real damage. When moisture lingers after a spill, a minor plumbing leak, or excessive humidity mold can grow. Only 24 to 48 hours of dampness provides the fuel spores need to multiply into ever-expanding colonies. When left unchecked, mold colonies can destroy organic building materials and reduce air quality. In susceptible individuals, allergic or sensitive to mold or its byproducts, mold growth can lead to irritation and concerns best addressed by a healthcare provider.

Ironically, as your housekeeping squad battles mold damage, their efforts often make things worse instead of better. Diluted bleach solutions and other cleaners do not penetrate deeply enough to get to all parts of a mold’s intertwining structure. They might lighten the mold’s stain, but the water in their formula feeds the mold, encouraging a rebound. SERVPRO approaches mold remediation differently, following the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols for Schools and Commercial Buildings.

Our project manager or crew lead looks for and helps arrange for the elimination of the water source first. Then the moldy area is contained. Our IICRC-trained technicians use physical barriers such as plastic sheeting, but also augment that with advanced technology like negative pressure air scrubbers that use HEPA filters to screen mold-contaminated air before exhausting it to the outdoors. An air scrubber also prevents drift of moldy materials to other areas of the hotel as we clean.

Mechanical removal of the mold with scrapers and brushes works on solid surfaces. SERVPRO also uses abrasive techniques like soda blasting to remove moldy residues from porous building materials in your hotel.

SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines has highly-qualified mold remediators backed by cutting edge equipment and techniques. Let us abate your hotel mold problem by starting with a call to (954) 998-0600.

Our Specialists Can Save Your Pembroke Pines Home After A Water Damage Disaster

Rely on the professionalism of SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines when cleanup of any category water is necessary.

Water Cleanup In Pembroke Pines By The Numbers

A water emergency in your Pembroke Pines home receives several types of evaluation when our remediation team arrives. We inspect the scene to determine the extent of the water migration to ensure we locate and remove all moisture, including hidden puddles and ponding behind, above, and beneath structural components. Allowing any water to linger invites progressive structural damage and secondary issues such as mold growth.

An equally important aspect of water cleanup in Pembroke Pines is the evaluation of the water quality. Restoration professionals assign the water invading your home a category from 1 to 3. Freshwater flowing from things like supply line breaks or tub overflows is labeled Category 1. This water exposes you and your family to little risk, and it usually can be pumped or extracted into the sanitary system or even to the ground surrounding a home.

Water pouring from broken dishwashers and washing machines, sink drains, and urine-only toilet overflow is labeled Category 2 or gray water. This type of water contains a level of contaminants that can cause illness or discomfort if ingested. SERVPRO follows appropriate rules when containing and discarding this type of water. Sanitary system disposal might be indicated, but discharging onto a yard or street is not recommended.

Highly contaminated water from sewage and toilet backflows from beyond the trap SERVPRO terms Category 3 or black water. Other examples of this type of fluid are seawater or overland flooding and wind-driven rain from hurricanes or lesser storms. Because no definitive answer is possible when water comes from these sources all are considered hazardous, possibly exposing your family and home to blood and fecal-borne pathogens, vermin, and chemicals, among other dangers.

SERVPRO professionals contain Category 3 or black water carefully, protecting themselves and unaffected areas of your property by wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) during the water cleanup. The liquids and contaminants are contained and disposed of according to local hazardous waste protocols.

The speed of cleanup is vital for all categories of water. Category 1 “fresh” water transforms rapidly to gray and then black water, categories 2 and 3, if left unattended for days or even hours. SERVPRO’s capacity to respond fast and complete cleanup by sanitization with EPA-registered disinfection makes our services essential to your home’s restoration and your peace of mind.

Rely on the professionalism of SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines when cleanup of any category water is necessary. Call us at (954) 998-0600 for fast, expert mitigation of any water emergency.

Pembroke Pines Homes Are Vulnerable to Flood Damage

Living in South Florida seems to protect us from the possibility of earthquakes and tornadoes, leaving us pretty calm about the threats of Mother Nature outside of hurricane season.

Our knowledge and expertise allow us to recognize the best methodology to apply when disaster strikes.

How SERVPRO Remediates Flood Damage in Pembroke Pines

SERVPRO can tarp your roof and emegency board up of your home to prevent more water from entering.

Risks of Inadequate Flood Cleanup for Pembroke Pines Homes

Storm damages can prove hazardous to your Pembroke Pines home if it does not get addressed quickly and professionally. In some situations, these vulnerable points in your home’s exterior can allow for flooding to occur through many areas of your property. Without skilled technicians working to remove this water damage throughout the house, the flooding can continue to get worse until structural damages and even secondary effects like mold growth result.

It can be impossible for homeowners to overcome flood damage effects in their Pembroke Pines residence on their own. With so many affected materials and areas from breaches in your home’s exterior, damage can spread quickly throughout the property, even into areas that you cannot see. This persistent moisture and dampness become impossible to recognize, so it is something that continues beyond initial recovery efforts to facilitate the growth of mold and to weaken structural elements. Our SERVPRO professionals can arrive with the ability to identify this moisture and with the tools and equipment to dry up damaged areas quickly.

When our technicians arrive at your home, we begin with emergency board up and tarping services to stop the flow of water into your property from the vulnerable areas caused by the storm damages. Our assessment of the property can help to pinpoint the full scope of the damage so that we can begin recovery efforts. We utilize moisture detection and thermal imagery to locate moisture pockets out of sight to ensure that the appropriate measures get taken to eliminate this dampness.

With high-powered extraction equipment like our gas-powered pumps and wet-vacs with extraction wands, we can pull up the excess pooling water throughout the exposed areas of your house. We can then set up drying equipment ranging from our air movers to our injecti-dry system which can penetrate wall cavities, spaces above ceilings, and into flooring materials.

Flood damage must get addressed quickly and by those with the equipment and expertise to do the job correctly. Give our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines rapid response team a call 24/7 at (954) 998-0600.

We are here to help with all fire & smoke odor removal services your home may need.

Pembroke Pines Home Needs Fire Odor Removal

Imagine that you are preparing for a special family meal and suddenly a small kitchen fire sparks, leaving your hood and upper cabinet bathed in grease and covered in soot. Furthermore, there is a lingering smell in your home that seems to cling to walls and furniture. As minor as it seems, eliminating the remaining fire odor from your home and belongings is a job for a professional team.

Our SERVPRO team is trained to tackle the recovery issues for fires big and small. The fire odor removal at your home in Pembroke Pines, caused by a small kitchen fire, is best handled by our trained technicians. Thanks to our comprehensive training program, our technicians are well-versed on the best approach to clean the affected surfaces. To this end, we use specially formulated detergents that avoid any smearing or further damage to your cabinets and countertops. While we work, we isolate your kitchen by placing protective plastic sheeting on all openings to protect the rest of your home from the odor.

To further neutralize the offensive smell our SERVPRO team cleans your HVAC ducts with a fogging solution that travels through the duct cleaning it without compromising the quality of the air in the rest of your home. We reinforce these efforts by using a HEPA activated charcoal filter, which is specially designed to improve the quality of air in your home and remove unwanted impurities. At the same time, a hydroxyl generator will be working to essentially alter the molecules causing the rancid smell and quickly removing them from your home. Along with slow release deodorizing pellets, you will find that your home's smell is back to normal in no time at all.

The specific steps our technicians use in cases such as kitchen fires are the best practices in the industry, and our team knows the applicability and effectiveness of each method. The average homeowner may attempt to resolve the fire residue with abrasive cleaning agents that only harm the cabinetry, causing a whole other issue to resolve. When you contact us as soon as the emergency happens, you save yourself time and resources by letting the professionals handle it.


Even when your fire seems like a small thing, SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines is here to help. By calling us at (954) 998-0600, you will reduce the time and effort put into erasing the smell and trace of a kitchen fire, and we will leave your home "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO Franchise professionals are available to quickly restore your salon after water damage.

Debris Removal for Your Flooded Pembroke Pines Salon

After a flood, your Pembroke Pines salon might not be recognizable. With rising waters throughout the area, debris and contaminants can get brought into your building with the intruding water, leaving a muddy mess that rivals the pooling water throughout the main floor of your business. With this widespread damage, it is critical to contact a team of professionals equipped to help you quickly.

As devastating as flood damage can be in your Pembroke Pines salon, a rapid response from trained professionals can make a positive impact. With many businesses throughout the immediate area also experiencing similar flood effects, it is essential to reach out to our SERVPRO emergency response team as promptly as possible so that our technicians can get to work on mitigating your losses and removing hazardous debris from your business.

From the time that our team arrives at your business, we have to perform a risk assessment immediately to determine the level of hazard that our team could experience beginning work on your damaged property. Flooding from rising creeks, rivers, and streams gets considered as a high-risk situation for contamination, and our professionals on site have extensive safety training and ongoing education in the use of our personal protective equipment.

Debris removal is more than just taking out the objects and mess that the rising waters bring into your business. Our professionals know that preparing your building for the restoration and reconstruction it requires after widespread flooding requires assessment of the damage to structural elements and removing exposed materials when necessary. Essential structural components such as supports, beams, framing and other elements can often get preserved with focused disinfection if they do not become physically compromised.

Debris removal is a process that has to get started as quickly as possible following flood damages. The faster our technicians can get to work, the more effective our mitigation work can be in limiting your loss and out of pocket expenses.

Our Team Will Put The Right Plan Of Action Into Your Pembroke Pines Water Restoration

2/8/2019 (Permalink)

Water damage caused this wall to become damp and needed restoration. Our team is ready to help with a sense of urgency.

Water Cleanup Crews In Pembroke Pines Describe Final Cleaning Procedures

If excessive moisture finds its way into your Pembroke Pines house, several issues can quickly result. If problems like these do not get treated promptly by a professional water cleanup company such as SERVPRO, the damage can get worse as time goes on. The longer materials stay wet, the more likely the moisture can ruin the item's structural integrity. If organic substances like paper or wood stay wet for more than 48 hours, there is a chance that mold can form. However, if water cleanup gets conducted immediately after it spills into your building, our technicians can minimize the chances of fungal contamination and save many of your wet building materials and contents from getting discarded and counted as a loss.

The first step to removing moisture is to extract it while it is still in the liquid form. Once water soaks into materials and evaporates into the air, our SERVPRO technicians then use other specialized methods and pieces of equipment to complete your water cleanup in Pembroke Pines. When drying out wet contents and building materials inside your dwelling, we utilize air movers to create airflow that pushes wet air away from affected surfaces so that water can evaporate from them. The moisture that is then put into the atmosphere gets removed by dehumidifiers that dispense it in liquid form and serve as a source of warm, dry air for the fans to use in the airflow movements.

After moisture levels return to what they were before the loss occurred and we put everything back, we complete a final cleaning process. The final cleaning includes a thorough cleaning of any affected carpets as well as a wipe down of surfaces in the area that got wet. We also can spray the affected region with antimicrobial chemicals to help prevent future mold growth. During the final clean we also take measure to deodorize any mildew-like aromas.

If you ever need help with water clean up out of your house, call SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines at (954) 998-0600 24/7.

Quick, Effective, And Friendly Mold Damage Remediation Services In Pembroke Pines

Unknowingly having a leak in your home can lead to unfortunate consequences, such as the formation of mold damage. It is not often that you go into your crawlspace, so you were unaware of the leaking pipe that was creating excess moisture inside of it. The storage boxes inside of it have become damp and mold-ridden, along with some of the wooden structure of the crawl space. In times like these, it's essential to get help as soon as possible.

You first found the mold damage inside your Pembroke Pines home when a musty smell began to waft into your laundry room. Mold is responsible for the decomposition of organic materials, such as the wooden structure of the crawlspace. Leaving the mold there for any longer would be irresponsible because of the damage it could do to your home, but also because mold is known to cause health effects.

You may wonder what company to call upon finding the mold outbreak in your home. SERVPRO has an excellent reputation of friendly and informative with its customers, always keeping you in the loop and taking the time to explain the situation and the solution. Furthermore, here at SERVPRO, we always strive to travel to your home and arrive there within a couple of hours after receiving your call. Our services are quick, they're professional, and our technicians are excellently trained.

Upon arriving, our IICRC technicians can launch right into the remediation. We can use heavy duty industry-grade plastic sheeting to seal off the mold damage from the rest of your home. We do this so that mold spores cannot spread while we remediate. From there, SERVPRO can set up an air scrubber equipped with HEPA filters to catch airborne spores during the remediation process.

Now that proper preparation has been executed, SERVPRO can begin to sort through your storage boxes. We can throw out anything unsalvageable while also sending anything that can be cleaned, and restored to its pre-mold state, to our facility. Once everything has been removed from the crawlspace, we can begin to use disinfectant and scrub the mold damage away from the structure of your home. To finish the job, SERVPRO can use an antifungal agent and then return your belongings to the crawlspace in newly packed boxes.

Should you ever discover mold damage in your home, never hesitate to reach out for help. Speak with SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines by calling (954) 998-0600. Night or day, we can travel to your home as quickly as possible.

Don't Let Mold Damage Spoil Your Pembroke Pines Hotel Review

1/8/2019 (Permalink)

As a business owner, you rely on good reviews, and one bad review can hurt your business.

Getting Guests Out of Areas with Mold in a Pembroke Pines Hotel

As misguided as some information might be, mold and microbial growth exposure can cause potential health effects for guests staying in your Pembroke Pines hotel. With high humidity combined with continuously conditioned air within the hotel, the potential for moisture is always there. Lingering moisture in guest rooms or communal areas of the facility requires immediate attention for many reasons.

Among the chief reasons to seek immediate mold remediation in your Pembroke Pines hotel is the effect that a thriving organism like this might have on the reviews and ratings that your business acquires throughout its lifetime. As a business owner, you can appreciate that it does not often matter how glowing reviews can help because a single negative review can be enough to dissuade possible future guests from choosing your business.

Contacting our SERVPRO professionals immediately upon the discovery of mold can help to get our remediation technicians there quickly to contain the spread of the organism and set up the appropriate equipment and plan to remove this presence from the area. During this work, we aim to do all we can to allow you to continue to serve guests in other areas of the hotel far from the affected points, but this depends on the severity of the situation.

We can appreciate your need to get your hotel back to full capacity as promptly as possible, and that is why we have the advanced equipment we do to both dry out the moisture-ridden areas and to restore the affected surfaces and materials throughout the building. Both through the removal of overly damaged structural elements and our modern tactics for mold colony removal, we can rid the area of the current spreading mold growth and restore the damage the organism has caused.

When you are running a hotel, the word of your guests and their satisfaction is vital for the hospitality industry. Let our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines remediation technicians help you to overcome any discovered mold in your building right away by calling (954) 998-0600.

Mold Remediation Tasks For Pembroke Pines Homes

Pembroke Pines missed the worst of the storms this year, but that does not mean residents are free from other disasters. Damage and repair costs from a fire or an unnoticed mold colony can be just as expensive as extreme weather.
 
Remediation of mold damage to Pembroke Pines homes requires more than bleach and a new coat of paint. For property severely affected by mold, SERVPRO technicians use an extensive inventory of cleaning agents and equipment needed to remove mold and return the item or even a room to a clean, usable condition.
 
As an example, bathrooms often suffer from the effects of mold due to their high humidity level compared to the rest of the home. Depending on the amount of mold present, our remediation specialists pull down drywall, replace grout, and either clean or dispose of cabinetry.
 
After the homeowner discovers mold, SERVPRO team members start remediation of the bathroom by removing structural property we cannot clean. Mold spores extend hyphae that grow into the surface of a material like drywall panels, feeding on it, and expanding the colony.
 
Cleaning or cutting out affected portions in the already weakened material often costs more in labor than buying and installing replacement panels. Once they complete drywall replacement, technicians sand them smooth and then paint each panel with a special paint that contains an anti-fungal chemical which significantly reduces the risk of future mold growth.
 
The grout between tiles or sealing the tub to the bathroom wall is often the first place an owner sees mold. Cleaning it can be labor intensive. SERVPRO techs can offer the best and least obstructive remedy for this type of mold infestation.
 
A mold colony often begins where there is a leak. That makes the cabinet surrounding a sink a likely hiding place for active, growing mold spores. If latex paint covers the interior of the cabinet, team members can usually remove mold with a mild cleaner and then spray the surface with an anti-fungal agent. If the spores penetrated the weak plywood or particle board that makes up most cabinets, technicians remove and replace the entire unit.
 
Mold remediation involves more than just cleaning and painting surfaces. SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines takes every action needed to remediate property from the effects of mold and return each home to its clean, original state whenever possible, "Like it never even happened." If you have or suspect mold in your home, call us today at (954) 998-0600 to schedule an inspection.

Call SERVPRO when storms cause your bars to flood.

A Tropical Storm Can Leave Your Pembroke Pines Bar in Need of Flood Drying Services

Tropical storms are known for sweeping heavy rain and intense winds into Florida, leaving many establishments in urgent need of flood drying services. While floods can seem like a pretty regular thing for people native to the state, they are still extremely dangerous, both when they sweep in and after they do their damage. The problem with floodwater is that it contains harmful substances, such as bacteria, waste, feces, animal remains, and fuel. Due to the nature of flooding, it is best to reach out for professional help as soon as possible, as they know how to remove the water from your business safely.  

Call SERVPRO as soon as you are aware of water damage in your Pembroke Pines bar. The faster that professionals get inside, the quicker they can deal with the water and minimize the damages. Once there, they begin to dry out the floor and bar, which has become quite waterlogged.  

SERVPRO sends a team of IICRC-certified technicians to your bar as quickly as possible after your initial phone call. We always make it a priority to get techs to your establishment on your schedule, as we understand how vital foot traffic is for your business. Once there, our technicians can begin to work right away because we understand that seconds count.  

Our SERVPRO technicians start by using wet/dry vacuums to remove the contaminated water from your establishment. For larger volumes of water, we use truck-mounted tools that can remove water at an accelerated rate. Once we remove the water, we clean up any debris and then sanitize the area thoroughly.  

To properly dry your bar and the wooden floor around it, SERVPRO uses drying mats, dehumidifiers, and air movers. Using these tools in conjunction allows us to create an environment that is ideal for drawing moisture out of the structure of your establishment. Once we remove the moisture, SERVPRO also uses a thermal fogger to combat any foul odors that the floodwaters brought into your bar and neutralize them.  

If a severe tropical storm leaves your establishment in urgent need of professional drying services, never hesitate in making the call. Phone SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines by dialing (954) 998-0600. Day or night, our doors are open.

Become Familiar With All Facets of the Flood Remediation Process in Your Pembroke Pines Home

Flooding can quickly affect your property. Contact SERVPRO to help prevent any secondary damages and odors.

Proper Deodorization Techniques Eliminate the Odors of Flood Damage in Pembroke Pines

After many disasters, homes in Pembroke Pines can hold onto the odors left behind. Floodwater carries an abundance of materials that create strong odors. The materials in the home absorb both the water and the particles suspended in that water. As we dry your house out, the moisture trapped in its materials carries odor-causing particles into the air.
 
The odor detected by those entering a home after it sustains flood damage in Pembroke Pines continues to make its appearance. To get rid of this odor, SERVPRO sends Odor Control Technicians (OCT) to perform deodorization.
 
Eliminating waterlogged materials significantly reduces the amount of odor in a home. However, after we remove a home's soggy drywall, carpet, and padding, odors remain in the air. Particles in tiny cracks throughout the materials that the floodwaters came into contact with end up lifted away and carried along by your home's already-present air currents. You and your family notice these particles as odors.
 
These additional particles remain hidden, so we need to use a method that infiltrates the places where these substances are located. After flood damage, elevated moisture can stay persistent, making ozone a less than perfect choice. Our specialists choose hydroxyl gas generators. These do take a bit longer to obtain the same results as ozone gas takes, but we prefer this for other benefits.
 
Ozone can cause damp fabrics and other materials to discolor. Occupying a residence while ozone generators are running poses risks to the well-being of people, pets, and plants. Hydroxyl gas does not create an unhealthy but temporary environment, allowing us to continue working on the mitigation and restoration of your property while the machine runs.
 
Hydroxyl gas also eliminates the bulk of that new carpet smell that many people dislike. Once our odor control specialist finishes a hydroxyl treatment, we can discuss additional options. Many of our customers choose to have long-lasting scents in the form of injections made into their newly-installed carpeting. This is the perfect time to perform this type of odor control technique. Additionally, we can place gel packs in inaccessible locations so pets and children cannot reach them but they can continually send a pleasant odor through your home.
 
SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines can help your family after flood damage strikes your home by mitigating the damage and attending to the aesthetics of making your home “Like it never even happened.” We are here, 24/7, and ready to answer your questions. Call us at (954) 998-0600, any day of the year, so we can provide you with the experience and skills your home and family needs.

Too Much Water on Your Pembroke Pines Property? We Understand--Call SERVPRO for Water Removal and Cleanup

Tropical Storms and Severe Weather Can Flood Pembroke Pines Homes

As much as Pembroke Pines residents are familiar with the ever-present threat of severe weather systems coming through the Gulf of Mexico or from the Atlantic, these storms often still manage to catch many homeowners off-guard. With the devastating force that tropical storms and hurricanes can hit the coastlines, situations like flooding are often among the lesser impacts that can occur.

Regardless of the widespread effects of a severe weather system, taking care of the flood damage to your Pembroke Pines home must get top priority. Especially in situations where broad areas of homes and businesses get affected by the rising waters and torrential rains, securing professional restoration immediately is critical to getting a fast response for mitigation and later restorative work.

Our SERVPRO rapid response team is available 24 hours a day to be there for our customers no matter what time disaster strikes. When flooding impacts your home, you need assurances that professionals can get there quickly to begin removing at-risk items, extracting the pooling water, and preventing the spread of this damage to new areas of your home if possible. Flood insurance adjusters are often contacted by us to simplify and streamline the claims process for our customers.

Throughout a few hours to a day, water damage can begin to spread throughout all exposed materials it has contacted. This saturation of the materials can be a welcomed seat for active mold spores throughout the environment to colonize. Our SERVPRO professionals can help this process by spraying surfaces with an antimicrobial solution to lessen the likelihood of fungal or mold growth. While we cannot remove all of the spores from the area, we can work to prevent them from finding a place to colonize and spread throughout the flood-affected regions of your property.

Flooding is something that many of the homeowners throughout the area have experienced in the past when hurricanes or severe tropical storms have occurred. Whenever disaster strikes again, you can count on our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines rapid response team to help. You can reach our IICRC-certified technicians anytime that you need us at (954) 998-0600.

Can Pipe Breaks Cause A Lot of Water Damage? Yes, It Can!

11/9/2018 (Permalink)

Regularly check the pipes in your home to make sure they are working properly to prevent water damage.

Technicians In Pembroke Pines Describe The Water Cleanup Process

If a water pipe breaks inside your Pembroke Pines house, it is essential to get the moisture removed quickly. Any time something gets wet, professional water cleanup from a company like SERVPRO is necessary. If materials inside your home stay wet for too long more issues such as secondary damage can take place. Secondary damage can occur when humidity levels rise or if mold forms due to materials staying wet for too long. Thorough water cleanup after a leak can help reduce the chance of a fungus growing.

The first steps to any mitigation project are to stop the leak from its source and to make sure the affected area is safe for occupants. Next, our SERVPRO technicians begin the water cleanup in your Pembroke Pines home with the removal process. Once a pipe breaks, the moisture always follows gravity and tends to settle on the floors. Since water can ruin flooring materials, it is important to remove it from carpet and hardwood floors quickly.

If the water is deep, our SERVPRO team can use a sump pump to pull up the water and put it into a sewer drain. After any standing water is removed, we use a truck mounted pump to remove water from flooring materials. For smaller jobs, we sometimes use wet vacs with special wands along with mops and buckets.

After we remove as much water as we can, we begin the drying process. To dry out building materials as quickly as possible, we set up a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers. Air movers circulate air to enhance evaporation from affected surfaces like furniture, walls, and fabrics. The dehumidifiers capture the airborne water molecules and condense them into a holding pan, thereby decreasing the dampness in the structure.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources


After we set up the equipment, we return to your home each day and check the progress. We use moisture meters to discover where the water may be hidden and adjust the equipment as necessary. As the last step, we do a final walk-through with the customer to verify a standard moisture level in building elements and a normal RH. If you ever have a water leak at your house, call SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines at (954) 998-0600 seven days a week.

¿Puede la tubería causar mucho daño por agua? ¡Sí puede!

11/9/2018 (Permalink)

No lidiar con el daño del agua solo. Llama al SERVPRO, y te ayudaremos.

Reparaciones de Daños Causados por el Agua en Pembroke Pines

Si una tubería de su casa en Pembroke Pines se rompe, es crucial que la humedad sea removida lo más pronto posible. Cada vez que un evento ocurre y los objetos de su casa se mojan, es importante contactar a una compañía como SERVPRO para realizar una limpieza professional donde se eliminen los rastros del agua. Si los objetos dentro de su casa permanecen mojados demasiado tiempo, usted podrá observar daños secundarios aún más profundos. Estos daños secundarios pueden ocurrir cuando los niveles de humedad se incrementan o como resultado del moho resultado del exceso de humedad. Una limpieza profunda después de una filtración puede mitigar la probabilidad de proliferación de hongos o bacterias.

Los primeros pasos para cualquier proyecto de remediación incluyen detener el bote de agua y la verificación de que el ambiente es seguro para sus habitantes. Seguidamente, nuestros técnicos de SERVPRO comenzarán la limpieza profunda de agua en su hogar en Pembroke Pines y empezarán a remover los efectos no deseados. Una vez que una tubería se ve comprometida, la humedad siempre seguirá la ley de gravedad y generalmente se asentará en los pisos. Dado que el agua puede afectar los pisos severamente, es importante remover alfombras y pisos de madera lo más pronto posible.

Si el agua es profunda, nuestro equipo de SERVPRO quizás utilice una bomba de sumidero para absorber el agua y guiarla al desagüe municipal. Luego de remover el agua estancada, utilizarán una bomba instalada en un camión para remover el agua acumulada en los pisos. Si el trabajo es más pequeño, nuestro equipo podrá utilizar una aspiradora especial para absorber la humedad junto con trapeadores.

Después de remover la mayor cantidad de agua posible, empezaremos con el proceso de secado. Para secar los objetos y estructuras lo más rápido posible utilizaremos deshumidificadores y ventiladores con el fin de circular el aire y promover la pronta evaporación de la humedad presente en muebles, paredes y telas. Los deshumidificadores capturan moléculas de agua en el ambiente y las condensan en un receptáculo, contribuyendo así a disminuir la humedad ambiental.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Después de instalar el equipo, regresamos a su hogar diariamente para monitorear el progreso. Utilizamos medidores de humedad para descubrir depósitos de agua escondidos y ajustamos el equipo de acuerdo a los resultados. Como último paso, hacemos una nueva revisión junto con el cliente para verificar los niveles normales de humedad en la estructura y un RH normal. Si alguna vez tiene una filtración en su casa, llame a SERVPRO de East Pembroke Pines al 954.998.0600 cualquier día de la semana, incluyendo sábados y domingos.

MOLD!! HOW? WHY? WHERE? SERVPRO Does Mold Remediation in Pembroke Pines

10/15/2018 (Permalink)

When You See a "Sign" of Mold, Call SERVPRO for Remediation at Your Pembroke Pines Property

Inadequate Cleanup Allows Mold Damage in Your Pembroke Pines Home

Water damages occur regularly to Pembroke Pines homes. While in many of these situations homeowners feel they can resolve the effects on their own without the experience and equipment available to our trusted restoration team, this is not always the case. Inadequate cleaning and drying following water damages to your home can lead to secondary effects like mold growth that could prove hazardous to both your home and its occupants.

Mold damages can occur in your Pembroke Pines home following persistent moisture and dampness in areas that you believed to have gotten restored. Our SERVPRO remediation specialists have encountered many situations in which mold colonies formed in areas like wall cavities, ceilings, and underneath flooring. These spaces can remain damp after water damage has presumably gotten dried up in your home, and the conditions for mold growth have been stymied.

Identifying the growing colony is one of the first steps to overcoming the damage it causes to your home. While some places mold grows can show signs such as spotting, certain materials can mask these effects from getting seen easily. One of the ways that you can identify an active colony growing in your home is by the musty, harsh odor generated by the organism. When you encounter this odor, it is likely a mold colony is in the vicinity, even if you cannot see it. The visible presence of staining is a sure sign of a fungal colony.

Our SERVPRO technicians can also help you to identify the presence of mold in your home and help to assess areas that pose a significant risk due to higher relative humidity levels. If mold gets discovered, our experienced remediation specialists can get to work on isolating the affected area with physical barriers and removing the organism from your home efficiently. Our equipment includes HEPA filtered air scrubbers to capture circulating mold spores during the removal process.

Mold growth is a condition that should get addressed as quickly as possible. Our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians are available 24/7 to help restore the damages that it has caused. You will feel "Like it never even happened." You can reach our experienced team by calling (954) 998-0600.

What You Should Know About Floods

9/27/2018 (Permalink)

It is important to be prepared for disasters.

Floods are one of the most common natural disasters on this planet. They can destroy buildings and cause water damage. They can also be dangerous too.

A few ways a flood can occur might include the following:

  • Excessive rain
  • A stream or river that has overflowed
  • A damaged dam

No matter how the flooding happens, it’s important to know what you are dealing with. Here is what you should know about floods.

Danger - Flood Water

One of the biggest concerns during these types of natural disasters is black water. This type of water is severely contaminated. Flood water isn’t just rain; it’s full of sewage, chemicals, and dangerous items such as broken glass or metal. It’s very important that you avoid touching the water and don’t drink it.

After the initial disaster, you may be able to return to your commercial building in East Pembroke Pines, Florida. However, be sure to wear protective gear when dealing with any water damage or mold. Thoroughly clean or throw away anything that has been submerged in this water, and seek help from professionals.

Location - Flash Floods

It’s important to realize that floods can truly happen anywhere, at any time. Flash floods can occur when rain falls heavily on the already highly-saturated soil. They can also happen when the soil is dry and doesn’t absorb water well. This creates lots of runoff that can cause flash flooding in low areas.

If your business is in a region that could be subject to flooding, be sure to find high ground that you could evacuate to. To minimize risk, every building should have a secure escape route and a backup plan.

Key - Awareness

Local radio stations normally keep people aware of weather conditions, especially during a storm. While this is helpful and can help you prevent water damage in your building, you can also take personal precautions that can ensure your safety.

By steering clear of black water and realizing the risk of flash flooding, you can be prepared for both types of water disaster.

The Insurance Adjuster Considers It a Partial Loss

9/27/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial fire loss in Pembroke Pines, FL

You have just had a serious fire. The flames are out, the tarps are in place and the windows are boarded up. Once the building is secured from the elements, it’s time for the insurance adjuster to open the claim, assess the damage and most likely tell you that it is a partial loss. However, when it comes to a serious fire loss, it is important for you to bring in your own expert.

Add a Licensed Professional Engineer to Your Team

The adjuster only represents the interests of the insurance company. You need someone to represent your interests. A licensed professional engineer with fire loss experience and a structural engineering background can help in several ways.

  • Evaluate the steel beams and iron components, looking for damage from intense heat.
  • Evaluate HVAC and ductwork for fire and smoke damage.
  • Inspect the roof, exterior walls and siding for evidence of hidden damage from the heat.
  • Identify areas where fire and smoke damage need to be repaired before new walls go up.
  • Evaluate water damage and check for the presence of mold in water-damaged areas.

Present the Engineer’s Report of Actual Damage

This is where the fun begins. The engineer identified problems that the adjuster couldn’t or didn’t want to see. If all damage identified by the engineer is repaired, the cost is going to be higher than the adjuster’s estimate. Next comes the negotiation but, when it comes to fire restoration claims, nothing is easy. Hopefully, the negotiation will be a matter of the engineer and adjuster discussing their estimates using language that you probably wouldn’t understand. If they come to an agreement, and if you agree, the work can begin.

Bring in the Contractors and Get Started

When dealing with a fire loss, quality restoration is best handled by skilled professionals and specialized equipment. You are fortunate that a team of fire restoration specialists can be found close by in Pembroke Pines, FL. See how smoothly things go with experts on the job.
