Outdoor Patio Heater Safety Tips for Miramar Businesses?

5/17/2022 (Permalink)

A propane patio heater sits outdoors. We respond to commercial fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Broward County.

Our local team in Pembroke Pines and West Miramar restores fire damage for Miramar businesses each year. The National Fire Protection Association has issued new safety tips for the commercial use of propane patio heaters as follows:

For patio heaters that use integral LP-Gas containers with a capacity greater than 1.08 lb. (0.49 kg), NFPA 1 requires that the heaters be listed by an organization acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ).

Propane heaters need to be used in accordance with their listing and manufacturer instructions. Prior to using a propane heater, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for information such as the following:

  • Necessary clearances from the heating element
  • Proper ventilation required
  • Proper inspection, cleaning, and maintenance procedures
  • Lighting and shutdown procedures
  • Where the heater can and cannot be used (for example, heaters cannot be used in enclosed locations)
  • Procedures for properly storing heaters

The restrictions for using propane heaters are based on the occupancy in which they are used. For example, in assembly occupancies, such as restaurants with fifty or more occupants, heaters cannot be located within five feet of the exits. Regardless of where they are used, if a heater uses propane hoses, they must be as short as possible, visible, and protected from damage.

Smoke Odor in Pembroke Pines Rental?

4/19/2022 (Permalink)

A home with a for rent sign is shown. We use various equipment and techniques to remove smoke odor from buildings in Broward County.

Our local team in Pembroke Pines and West Miramar understands the science behind smoke odor removal. Here are some of the methods we may use to remove smoke odor:

Air Scrubber or Filter

  • Heating, ventilation, air conditioning system (HVAC) air scrubber, or a high-efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA) air purifier can capture larger smoke molecules. There will still be some residual odor from smaller molecules or surface residues.

Ozone Generator

  • An ozone generator is a fast and highly effective smoke odor restoration method. These machines emit ozone, which follows the same paths through the air as smoke and oxidizes any residual traces in the air or on surfaces.

Thermal Fogging

  • Thermal fogging is an intensive treatment involving fogging machines. After residents evacuate, smoke cleaning professionals fill a structure with petroleum distillates that neutralize odors and ventilate the area.

Hydroxyl Generator

  • A hydroxyl generator is a slower and gentler alternative to ozone. These machines rely on ultraviolet light to generate hydroxyl radicals that eliminate smoke odors. It will take about three to five days of continuous operation to achieve the same results as a single ozone treatment.

Vapor Modification

  • Vapor modification is another odor elimination method that relies on aromatic compounds and a blower or fan to neutralize smoke odor

Advanced technology and equipment.

We called SERVPRO® of Pembroke Pines/West Miramar, and they arrived on site quickly and immediately began the restoration process.

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

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."

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

2/24/2020 (Permalink)

flooded office with computers Regardless whether your office, waiting room or reception area was flooded, one call to SERVPRO gets you the water removal help that you need.

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.

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.

9/3/2019 (Permalink)

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.

Emergency water loss recovery is a job for our professionals. We respond 24/7, every day of the year. 

Water Damage Exposes Your Residents to Risks

When water damage affects Hollywood residents in need of supportive residential services, a speedy response is essential. A broken pipe or malfunctioning appliance can spread water down halls and into resident’s apartments. Immediate risks include the possibility of slips and falls, electrical shock, or power outages. 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

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."

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.

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.

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.

How SERVPRO Remediates Flood Damage in Your Pembroke Pines Bar

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.
