Keeping Businesses Open by Eliminating Fire Damage

We want to help you keep your store’s doors open in Clearwater. By doing fire damage remediation in Clearwater, we can accomplish that for you. Fires create heat and smoke, along with dangerous flames. Putting them out leaves your business damaged, including strongly unpleasant odors and filthy soot.

Your customers want a pleasant shopping experience. We work diligently to make this a reality again. Our crews use different methods to make it “Like it never even happened.” You might find us using any of the following:

  • Soot-absorbing erasers on walls and other flat surfaces,
  • Air scrubbers and hydroxyl generating machines, and
  • Thermal fogging machines.

Team members also spend time working on upper sections of walls near the corners to prevent soot tags (which resemble spider webs) from forming in the future. These tags commonly appear with fire damage and are not caused by spiders.

When working, we use all applicable protection measures. This includes both those designed for personal wear, such as our use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other general measures. This might include plastic sheeting around areas where soot might exist to prevent its spread to now-clean areas.

As SERVPRO crews work within your store, we typically attempt to work in a manner that poses as little hindrance to your employees and customers as possible. Whenever time constraints require specific activity, please inform us so we do not interfere in your daily operations. As another local business, we understand that the public is crucial for your business’ soundness.

Fire damage is an ongoing threat to your inventory and your furnishings. Soot that works into your computers can cause you to lose anything stored on them. It can cause other electronics to stop working, including security cameras and electronic doorways. It can discolor inventory and foul up the air. When this happens, we can help.

The fire damage remediation crew at SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach is here to help. Just call us at our 24-hour service line, (727) 614-0099.

You Need Water Cleanup for Leaks in Your Clearwater Rental

6/14/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO tech using drying equiment SERVPRO water cleanup technicians are IICRC certified and trained. We are ready at a moment's notice.

Accumulated Dirt and Grime Solved by Water Cleanup

Dust is constantly present in even the cleanest residence, containing microbes, pollen, microfibers, and the finest soil particles. Moisture combined with settled dust can create crud in hard-to-reach areas. SERVPRO’s water cleanup team in Clearwater uses scalable methods to suit each job’s specific, precise needs.

When leaks drip water along water lines in your Clearwater property, water cleanup can preserve things and eliminate the chances of deterioration. SERVPRO’s wide range of tools includes:     

  • Infrared cameras that detect moisture and water,
  • Extraction devices that can handle any quantity of water, from minute amounts to thousands of gallons, and
  • Cleaning equipment – buckets and mops, sponges, brushes, whisks, tubing, and more.

Leaks can happen in areas without water lines, also. Around windows, especially if the window is several years old. Seals can warp, shrink, and disintegrate, letting rainwater inside the house’s envelope. Such moisture can become trapped between the exterior and interior surfaces in that area. Missing shingles and gaps in siding provide paths that precipitation can pass through.

Condensation inside refrigerators can overflow the drip pan, and unbalanced dishwashers can leak hot, soapy water onto the floor. Unlike these ongoing situations, water in a washing machine can overfill when too many items are packed inside but can still lead to unfavorable conditions sporadically.

Cleaning up watery messes might seem unimportant and a temporary problem to many. However, we can provide infrared images that show any areas containing excess amounts of moisture. After discovering these locations, we clean them of not only water but also soil, dust, and grime. SERVPRO technicians can help protect your investment from water damage.

Call SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach at (727) 614-0099 for water mitigation services when you discover leaks around appliances, along walls, or anywhere else. We can help with any severity of damage and protect your property.

Why SERVPRO is Chosen for Mold Remediation in Clearwater Beach

SERVPRO what to know about mold sign SERVPRO mold remediation experts have the skills and training for every phase needed for your home.

Materials Vary in Degrees of Clearwater Mold Damage

Depending on the location of your Clearwater Beach home’s mold damage, SERVPRO’s experts decide on which response is most cost-effective for your family. Your residence's actual building materials, furnishings, and your family's personal belongings inside are all made of different, assorted materials. Plastic, wood, metal, glass, textiles, leather, and much more can all be affected by microbes.

Residents in Clearwater Beach can find mold damage within their domicile on almost anything that has gotten damp for more than a day or two. The first impulse might be to throw away anything with mold or mildew.

Some items, like clothing or paper-based things, can rarely get clean enough to salvage. Dotted stains remain, rendering it unsightly and smelly, regardless of which technique we employ. Other items are more difficult for microbes to ruin, and we can save those for your future use.

SERVPRO technicians know which items we can restore and eliminate microbial damage:

  • Glassware, including most other glazed things,
  • Metal belongings, and
  • Harder plastics.

Spending little time on non-salvageable items except to note their loss for insurance purposes leaves more time to restore those belongings that we can save for you. However, we want you to know that if something holds sentimental value for your family, please, inform us so we can attempt to find a third-party restorer if you wish to pursue that option.

When building materials like your home’s interior walls show mold damage, we can check with a technique that lets us see inside the wall. If mold is present, we can enclose the area, create a negative pressure system, and remove the wall section to eliminate the microbial infestation (Mold Remediation: MRSR1163 license). We then rebuild the wall (CBC-1250662 license), repaint, and leave things “Like it never even happened.” 

SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach has the experienced and skilled team you need when mold damage occurs inside your home. Call us at (727) 614-0099 for prompt service.

We use controlled demolition techniques to minimize structure replacement in the kitchen and damage to other home areas.

The fire damage is usually contained in the immediate area of the fire. We fine smoke residues and odors distributed throughout the home. We inspect the house for the type of residue and apply the appropriate cleaners to clean all surfaces and contents in the home.

Need Help with Flood Damage from Storms in Clearwater – Call SERVPRO

5/12/2022 (Permalink)

Woman Catching Water in a Bucket When flooding hits your area, you need to call the technicians at SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Provides Flood Damage Repair and Restoration Services in Clearwater

Storms can cause much flood damage in Clearwater homes, and no home is exempt. Water pooling on flat roofs can leak into living areas. Shingles or siding ripped away by high winds allow rainwater to penetrate the home. Floodwaters can inundate a home in minutes, bringing debris, silt, and contamination into the house. In all cases, it is extremely important to remove water and moisture before secondary damage to the structure occurs.

SERVPRO responds within four hours of your call to provide flood damage restoration to residents of Clearwater. Our initial approach is to remove standing water and debris and provide board-up services to cover broken windows, doors, and punctured walls and roofs. We focus on reducing and controlling the amount of secondary damage caused by hours of water standing in your home. We use high-capacity pumps, water extractors, and air movers to remove the water and reduce humidity levels to normal.

Secondary damage such as wood products absorbing water and swelling includes hardwood floors, particle board used in many furniture items, and cupboards. Compressed wood products used as subfloors and carpets can delaminate (carpet fibers separating from the backing) and mold colonies begin growing in 24 hours or less. Quickly removing the water and moisture is paramount to reducing secondary stormwater damage.

Our team also retains a general contractor license allowing SERVPRO to offer controlled demolition and removal services and repair exterior surfaces such as the roof and siding. Interior repair and restoration services are also available.

Our emergency storm and flood damage services include:

  • Water damage repairs
  • Water clean up
  • Water removal services
  • Water damage remediation

Why is Water Damage Cleanup and Repair Important in Clearwater – Call SERVPRO

Water from plumbing leaks in Clearwater homes can create a mess and cause damage to walls, cupboards, and flooring materials if the leak is not contained and the water removed. Water travels to the lowest point, disguising the source and causing damage as it travels inside walls, under cupboards, and flooring. Residents should shut off the water supply, mop up noticeable water pooling and call for help before permanent damage occurs.

SERVPRO provides water damage remediation in Clearwater and surrounding areas. Our team responds within four hours of your call. It begins deploying whatever resources are needed to remove excess water and start drying operations. We use drying mats on hardwood floors to withdraw moisture lurking in the spaces between the hardwood planks. Water extractors are used to remove water and moisture from carpets and the underpad below to avoid damage to the subfloor.

We use water sensors to check for high moisture levels inside walls or under cupboards. We drill access holes into these areas to remove water and blow dry air in to dry these areas. SERVPRO deploys high-capacity air movers and dehumidifiers to reduce moisture and humidity levels to normal levels.

We believe that the fast response and focused water and moisture removal will limit the amount of secondary damage caused by wood product swelling and mold formation, which can begin in as little as 24 hours. Mold can cause health effects for many consumers.

  • Water removal services

Need Mold Remediation Assistance in Clearwater – Call SERVPRO

A mold infestation in your Clearwater home or business can easily sneak up on you. A little moisture, warmth, and an organic food source are all that is needed. Mold colonies can form within 24 hours, producing a strong, musty odor in your home or business. Many people ignore the signs of a mold colony until it is too late. Contents and even structures can be damaged by heavy mold infestations and colonies, not to mention a strong, musty odor emanating from the infested area.

SERVPRO provides mold remediation and repair to Clearwater homes and businesses and the surrounding area. Our team of mold experts can assess the situation and prepare a plan to remove mold and avoid contamination of the additional regions of your building. Depending on the extent of the infestation, local and state laws may require specific protocols and documentation to be adhered to.

Since mold can cause health effects, it is essential to contain the infestation and prevent mold spores from circulating throughout the building while mold removal and sanitization are applied. SERVPRO installs plastic barriers and negative pressure rooms to exhaust spores while removing mold from surfaces and contents. We may need to remove portions of the structure in severely contaminated situations. Once the mold removal is complete, our building services team can help with repairs and reconstruction to reduce your home or business's time for a full recovery. We provide a full-service solution to ensure the entire time needed to remediate the mold infestation is minimized.

How Does SERVPRO Prevent the Long-Term Effects of Flood Damage in Clearwater Beach Homes? 

Dealing with flood damage to your Clearwater Beach home can be an intimidating prospect. However, the aftermath of the injury can be controlled if you act fast and hire professionals like SERVPRO.

SERVPRO techs understand that the best way to prevent the lasting effects of flood damage to your Clearwater Beach home is by getting rid of the water as quickly as possible. Consequently, the focus of the restoration efforts in the initial stages is to eliminate any standing and free water from your property. We use powerful extractors to pump out the bulk of the water from the property. However, deep extraction tools are often needed to remove the water soaked into the carpet and flooring. 

The Role of Deep Extraction Tools in Flood Restoration of Clearwater Beach Homes

SERVPRO techs use deep extraction tools to remove water-soaked into carpets after a flooding incident at your Clearwater Beach property. These extraction tools can be either self-propelled or stationary.

  • Self-propelled extraction tools: These tools are powered by an independent motor that moves the unit over the carpet at a constant rate. The equipment compresses the carpeting and padding and squeezes the water out. Some extraction tools that SERVPRO techs use also allow the restorer to 'ride' on the unit to provide additional weight.
  • Stationary tools: These extract water from carpet and pad using only the weight of the water damage restoration professional standing upon the device. A vacuum system is attached to the device, pulling water through a series of tiny holes in the unit's base.

Call SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach at (727) 614-0099; our technicians are available 24/7 to answer your questions.

Smoke and soot on wall of fire damaged room Smoke and soot affect everything they touch. SERVPRO has the tools and techniques to restore your home.

How Do SERVPRO Techs Clean Hardwood Furniture After Fire Damage in Clearwater Homes? 

The smoke and soot after a fire damage incident in your Clearwater home can have a considerable impact on the contents, including hardwood furniture. The type of finish on the furniture and the extent of the damage affects the success of SERVPRO's restoration effort.

SERVPRO techs use dry and wet cleaning methods to remove residue from hardwood furniture after fire damage to your Clearwater property. If the wood surface is unfinished, smoke and residue particles can easily penetrate the pores making it difficult to clean. SERVPRO techs use dry cleaning with the help of sponges and scrubbers to clean unfinished hardwood furniture.

The Extent of Smoke Damage Determines SERVPRO's Success in Restoring Hardwood Furniture in Clearwater

Although SERVPRO techs make efforts to clean the smoke and soot residue from hardwood furniture from your Clearwater home, certain situations make it impossible to restore the items.

  • Blistering: Depending on how close the surface of hardwood furniture was to the heat line, it can show blistering or scorching. In such situations, the smoke can penetrate the finish and cause permanent discoloration that is not restorable.
  • Staining: While SERVPRO techs can quickly remove dry smoke and soot particles, the situation gets tricky if the smoke residue is wet and sticky. Residue from a protein fire can cause smoke damage that permanently stains the hardwood furniture, making it unfit for restoration.

What Type of Cleaning Agents are Used on Hardwood Furniture?

For cleaning mild residues from hardwood surfaces, SERVPRO techs use gentle alkaline detergent solutions and clean in the direction of the wood grain. Once the cleaning is done, the techs apply oil-based furniture polish to replenish the wood's natural oils.

How Do SERVPRO Techs Measure Humidity During Water Damage Repair in Clearwater Homes? 

Dry air is perhaps one of the most essential tools for drying wet materials at a restorer's disposal. Hence, the SERVPRO techs need to be able to measure the moisture in the air accurately during water damage repair of your Clearwater home.  

SERVPRO techs express the humidity of air during water damage repair in Clearwater using two ways:

  • The relative humidity is the ratio of air's moisture at any given temperature to the maximum moisture it can hold at that temperature expressed as a percentage. As the temperature of the air increases, its moisture-holding capacity also increases.   
  • Humidity ratio is the proportion of the weight of water vapor (measured in grains) preset per pound of dry air measured at a given temperature. 

Why Do SERVPRO Techs Prefer Humidity Ratio Over Relative Humidity During Water Cleanup in Clearwater?

While both relative humidity and humidity ratio are a good measure of the amount of moisture present in the air, SERVPRO techs generally prefer to rely on humidity ratios for their calculations. As the temperature has a tremendous effect on the properties of air, relative humidity is not a good indicator of the quantity of moisture present in the air.  

On the contrary, the humidity ratio measures the actual amount of moisture present in the air, and consequently, it is a better indicator of how wet or dry it is.

What Equipment Can Measure the Humidity Ratio of Air?

One of the most trusted devices that can give a restorer an accurate measure of the humidity ratio of the air is a thermo-hygrometer. These can also measure vapor pressure and dew point of the air.

SERVPRO Offers Reliable Mold Remediation in Affected Clearwater Residences

Mold damage in your property can cause health problems to your family if ignored for an extended period. Mold often grows within 48 to 72 hours after a water intrusion incident in buildings. Professional restorers like SERVPRO can help you to remediate mold successfully.

If mold remediation in your Clearwater property is not done quickly enough, it might spread to other areas where there is moisture. Excess moisture can be caused by water from various sources on your property. Mold development is unlikely to occur if the space is sufficiently ventilated.

SERVPRO approaches mold remediation using updated equipment and innovative techniques. Our team responds in a quick manner because we understand how fast mold spreads. We start by performing a thorough inspection to determine the extent of mold damage within your property.

Our SERVPRO restorers can use inspection cameras and borescopes to look into cavities to examine the construction method and determine the presence of visible contamination. Cavities like telecommunication chases can be expensive to repair if dismantled for inspection. 

Borescopes feature an objective lens at their tip, similar to a camera lens. It creates an image of the object that restorers are viewing. An optical relay follows the objective lens and transmits the picture down the tube. We can also use motorized inspection cameras to inspect for contamination inside the ductwork.

We choose specific equipment because: 

  • So as not to damage the building.
  • It allows us to scan more places in a shorter amount of time. 
  • It will enable us to examine tough to reach areas.

We have innovative products at our disposal that assist us in removing mold from the damaged region. Our SERVPRO technicians can use sporicides and disinfectants that act against fungal spores and bacteria. The products minimize the chances of mold growth reoccurring and keep a home’s surfaces clean.

A kitchen fire in your hotel may cause significant fire and smoke damage, and quick action is required to avoid further destruction. Skilled fire damage restorers lower the risk of lasting degradation of wood, drywall, and carpeting, among other materials. It is necessary to recruit the help of a reputable restoration company, such as SERVPRO, which has extensive experience in fire repair.

SERVPRO restorers are trained and certified to offer commercial fire damage restoration services in Clearwater. Our professional restorers respond as rapidly as possible to our customers’ emergency calls to evaluate the extent of the damage. 

Our team of technicians can:

  • Board up any openings, including doors and windows. 
  • Perform Smoke and soot cleanup. 
  • Perform water damage restoration.
  • Perform odor removal.

Even seemingly undamaged interior walls and ductwork can be contaminated by smoke and soot. Cooking appliances and equipment in your hotel including, stereos, and laptops, among other electronic devices, can be damaged. Smoke and soot are acidic. They can corrode metals and stain any porous surface if not extracted immediately using specialized cleaning chemicals and techniques. Our SERVPRO restorers can use a natural fabric brightener along with shampoo super concentrate to remove oxidized stains from wool carpets or cotton surfaces.

It is important to get rid of fire odors as soon as possible because odor-causing substances can permeate so profoundly that they are impossible to eliminate. Incorrect techniques can exacerbate the problem. In addition to cleaning buildings with our odor-blasting equipment, our SERVPRO technicians can use air scrubbers to remove gases, airborne particles, and odors from the air. These devices pull out dirty indoor air through a series of filters, capturing gases, odors and particles. They then exhaust clean air back into the environment. HEPA filters can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns in size. The activated potassium permanganate and carbon filters eliminate many odors and gases by attracting odor molecules to the filter through adsorption.

Flood water in home If flood waters wreak havoc on your property, call the experienced professionals right away.

SERVPRO is Qualified to Handle the Storm Flood Damage in Clearwater Beach Properties 

When your house sustains storm flood damage, it is critical to contact an experienced restoration company like SERVPRO as soon as possible. If neglected for an extended period, the floodwater can cause structural damage and weaken the foundation of your home. Attempting to rehabilitate the afflicted area without the necessary knowledge and tools can result in significant damage.

We have the experience and equipment to handle storm flood damage in Clearwater Beach homes. We can restore your property to its preloss state quickly and effectively. SERVPRO’s flood damage restoration service involves:

  • Rubbish removal
  • Floodwater removal
  • Drying the structure
  • Deodorization

Rubbish Removal

Our team can remove contaminated porous materials and bag them carefully in 6-mil polyethylene bags. We can move solid debris like bags of carpet, carpet pad, and drywall to a decontamination chamber. Within the chamber, we bag them again to cover any contamination of the surface of the original bag. After double bagging, we move the debris into an unaffected area and place it close to the dumpster or work vehicle.

Water Extraction

Our SERVPRO team of restorers can remove floodwater in your home using electric submersible pumps. The equipment eliminates the suction lift limitations and offers quiet, continuous operation. Electric submersible pumps have a wide range of capacities. Small portable units can move from 100 to 18,000 gallons of water per hour through a ¾″ to 4″ hose.

Drying the Structure 

Our restorers can use air movers to increase the evaporation rate. We can also use portable desiccant dehumidifiers to create negative air pressure in the damaged area.


Deodorization deals with imagined and real odors. Odors are the smells that real substances interacting with the nose causes. Psychological or imaginary odors are what people think they smell. Our SERVPRO technicians can use ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers to dispense solvent-based and water-based deodorizers to your home. ULV foggers generate tiny deodorants or particles that penetrate most areas where odor particles hide.

Contact SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach at (727) 614-0099 to get your home to its preloss condition. Our goal is to make the storm flood damage appear “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Brings a Premier Fire Restoration Service to Clearwater Homes

A fire incident can devastate your home leaving smoke and soot residue on every exposed surface. Removing such residues is a primary goal during the fire restoration of your Clearwater home, as they can irreparably damage the structure and contents.   

SERVPRO techs must capture these residues during fire restoration of your Clearwater home before they can be removed. Technicians use air and fluids to release and carry the soils away by suspending the particles. The type of smoke residue and the type of surface determine the method used to capture them. 

How do SERVPRO techs remove residues during house fire cleanup in Clearwater? 

Vacuuming the residue and dissolving in an appropriate solvent are the two ways to capture residues and carry them off to dispose of them. 

  • Vacuuming: If the smoke and soot particles are dry and loosely attached to the surface, SERVPRO experts use vacuuming to capture them. As wet smoke particles can adhere to the surfaces strongly, this method is not suitable for removing wet residues. 
  • Dissolving: If the residues are not loose particles, they need to be dissolved before being removed. The technicians use several solvent-based cleaning products to loosen the bond between the residues and the surfaces. 

What kind of solvents are used in professional cleaning products?

Techs use both water-based and solvent-based cleaning products depending on the type of residues. The nature and properties of the surface also plays a crucial role in the choice of the cleaning product. Solvents can easily damage surfaces such as paints and varnishes, and hence water-based cleaning products are used on them.

SERVPRO Technicians are Available 24/7 for Commercial Water Restoration in Clearwater beach

Water damage in a Clearwater Beach commercial property can be far worse than a residential structure because the building may be closed for a weekend or a holiday, and the damage can compound over days. 

Ultimately, no business owner wants to close during commercial water cleanup in a Clearwater Beach structure. This is particularly true in cases with sagging ceilings from leaky pipes or water damage seeping down from a floor above. Sheetrock exposed to excessive moisture deteriorates rapidly, and ceilings and walls can fall. For that reason, it is best to close the business during the mitigation to ensure that there are no injuries to employees or the public. 

SERVPRO technicians have extensive training for handling water damage restoration services and identifying and securing potential hazards caused by the issue. The techs have not only ongoing training for the latest techniques in the restoration industry but also advanced equipment, which gives them the ability to: 

  • Perform controlled demo as needed
  • Water removal of any scale
  • Cleaning and drying of contents
  • Storage of important equipment or documents 

Reopening after a water damage incident often requires repairs. This SERVPRO location holds a general contractor license # CBC-1250662. The technicians can handle anything needed to bring the commercial property back to its normal state, including reconstruction as required, right down to the cosmetic touches such as painting walls. Also, the techs hand-clean surfaces to ensure both employees and public foot traffic enter a clean environment. 

SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach at (727) 614-0099 supports the Clearwater Beach area with large and small commercial water cleanup as needed. The certified, trained technicians are available 24/7.

SERVPRO Techs Have Training and Experience Handling All Types of Storm Damage in Clearwater

This area of Florida frequently bears the brunt of heavy rains, tropical storms, and hurricanes. All of these weather events can bring storm damage to various areas of the property. 

There are numerous ways that flood damage can occur in a Clearwater property. SERVPRO technicians have certification and the professional equipment to deal with the restoration service from a crawlspace to the roof. The technicians inspect properties upon arrival to determine problem areas and regions of the home that need attention first. Frequently performed actions during water damage mitigation include: 

  • Tarping of roofs and broken windows to stop any further water from entering the property
  • Tracking floodwater within a home to ensure it all gets extracted and dried
  • Removal of home contents as necessary from high moisture areas during the mitigation 

High winds can damage roofs and allow water to enter. This unfortunate situation often continues unnoticed until the homeowner realizes their ceiling is dripping. Then the effects of the incoming water get found. SERVPRO technicians have specialized vacuums to collect fiberglass insulation for cleaning and sanitizing in our facility for reuse. If mold growth is found during the inspection, the insulation requires disposal. 

While basements are a rarity in Florida, crawlspaces are more common. Once the water begins entering regularly, homeowners should consider getting encapsulation after drying and cleaning the area. This will keep the potential for water and mold damage to a minimum. 

SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach at (727) 614-0099 cleans and restores Clearwater properties that have experienced flood damage. The technicians will arrive quickly and clean up the damage, so it is "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO Technicians Bring Years of Training and Experience for Every Clearwater House Fire Cleanup

Increasing the odds against fire damage involves upping the fire safety around your Clearwater property. One of the basics for prevention is an accessible fire extinguisher in several rooms within the structure. Having the power to stop a fire before it spreads can help limit the amount of fire cleanup needed in a home.

SERVPRO handles fire restoration in the Clearwater area and sees the homes in the aftermath of both large and small house fires. The most important part of owning a fire extinguisher is learning when to use it and how to operate it correctly. SERVPRO techs recommend only using this tool if it is safe to do so and there is access to fresh air and no issues with toxic smoke. Other considerations include:

  • Make sure all residents of the house (including pets are out) and someone has called 911
  • Create a fire plan and practice it monthly, including instructing all family members how to operate the fire extinguisher
  • If the fire is big, do not attempt to tackle it alone; leave the premises and let first responders handle it

SERVPRO recommends checking the smoke detectors in the home monthly. Operating a fire extinguisher is simple and remember the P.A.S.S. method, which is to pull the pin, aim the extinguisher at the base of the fire, squeeze on the trigger and continue to sweep from side to side until the flames are eliminated. 

Even a small fire can leave pungent odors and smoke damage. SERVPRO technicians can remove both the smells and visible traces of the fire in homes quickly and efficiently. 

SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach at (727) 614-0099 supports the local Clearwater community for any size and type of fire restoration services.

SERVPRO Can Help Inspect Your Condo Revealing Any Hidden Moisture Damages

Although it might not seem so, determining the outcome of a Condo water leak is challenging. A wide range of damages can develop immediately or later on if the water sits in the property for long. Involving a professional ensures that any negative effects are readily identified and resolved.

The type of water damage in your Clearwater condo may depend on the amount of water spilled or the time it takes to start the restoration. Water leaks originating in unoccupied units can remain unnoticed for some time. Even water leaks that start in occupied units and are identified immediately can spread moisture to other unoccupied units where it can remain unnoticed. SERVPRO has significant experience dealing with water intrusions and thus expects such unique challenges. 

Some of the typical issues caused by water include:

  • Material deterioration through rusting, rotting, or swelling
  • Changes to the aesthetic appeal because stains or patches
  • Damaged utilities such as electrical systems

Material deterioration can affect hidden structural elements such as the frames, transforming simple water intrusion into extensive repair works. Luckily, such deterioration takes a long time and can be prevented by focusing on reversing moisture migration. 

One simple approach our SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians apply is using thermal cameras to check for moisture within the walls and floors. With such noninvasive resources, it is easier to probe vast sections establishing if the problem spreads from one unit to another even when such units are unoccupied. Tracing moisture migration patterns may also be necessary if there is a need to apportion responsibility to different parties.

SERVPRO Prioritizes Safety When Handling Moldy Materials in Affected Properties

When mold contaminates your property, one of the challenging tasks you might face is removing the moldy debris that accumulates from mold colonies and the deterioration of materials. The mold damage remediation necessary to restore preloss conditions in your property requires competency in various fields, including building services, moisture management, and management of microbial processes.

One of the best ways to execute mold damage remediation in your Clearwater home is by consulting a professional since you can access all the necessary resources needed at once. SERVPRO has considerable experience handling different levels of mold contamination, so we are best equipped to manage any amount of debris.

The most crucial aspects of handling moldy residues include:

  • Safety of the structure during the clearing of debris
  • Limiting exposure to the people involved
  • Safe disposal of moldy materials

Mold causes unsalvageable damage to porous organic materials. Therefore, tearing them down and removing them from the structure is the best solution. Such removal takes both building skills and correct tools to execute. For example, it would be impractical to break up drywall with a sledgehammer. Our SERVPRO teams rely on better approaches, like using cutting tools and pry bars for neat and safer demolition.

Since mold debris is characterized by fine residues that can easily spread when disturbed, leading to greater exposure for the people within the property, containment is essential. Our SERVPRO technicians can use different approaches to ensure all debris is contained.

The four typical containment actions include:

  • Installing plastic sheeting as containment barriers
  • Setting up negative air pressure within the containment area
  • Establishing cleaning rooms for decontaminating people and equipment
  • Sealing HVAC vents to protect ducts

SERVPRO Offers All Essential Services Apart From Cleaning and Drying Properties After Water Spills

When you realize that your business facility needs water removal, it can mean other things apart from extracting pooling water or drying wet materials. The extra tasks may be difficult to complete, which is why seeking professional assistance is necessary. 

The type of actions needed during water removal from your Clearwater property may depend on the level of water spilled, the duration elapsed since the intrusion, or even the materials you have in the affected areas. Moisture affects many materials, including organic ones such as wood as well as inorganic ones like metal.

The common processes that facilitate comprehensive water removal include:

  • Removal of unsalvageable floor materials
  • Removal of porous wall materials
  • Drying structural materials and contents
  • Extraction of any water remnants

Materials might end up unsalvageable because of extended exposure to moisture leading to physical deterioration or contamination. Typical unsalvageable materials include carpet padding and insulation. Since the two materials are hidden beneath carpets and wall panels, respectively, removal requires the right skills and equipment. SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians can handle such delicate tasks.

The amount of water left on your property may be more than you expect. For instance, if you have carpeted rooms, the water trapped on the floor surfaces is high even when there are no visible pools. Another challenge of removing such water is that simple extraction is not likely to be effective. SERVPRO has the right extractors with the appropriate vacuum lift capacity to handle such extraction. We also have weighted equipment to help squeeze out the water.

With the assistance from SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach, businesses can resolve any water removal issue. Call us at (727) 614-0099. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Preventing Secondary Damage Is Possible When SERVPRO Manages Flood Restoration at Your Property

Things are usually in disarray in the aftermath of a flooding incident. It is easy to miss or overlook some important actions in your haste to salvage personal items. An effective response should be timely and take a holistic approach rather than focusing on individual items within your Clearwater home.

Flood damage in your Clearwater home continues to worsen even after the storm subsides. Issues can arise from moisture exposure, high humidity, contaminants, and even structural weakness. Luckily, it is possible to manage such issues, reducing the overall damage by a significant margin. SERVPRO crew chiefs can help evaluate your property to determine actions with the biggest impact, thus prioritizing them before embarking on other restoration processes.

Floor restoration normally involves processes like:

  • Water damage repairs
  • Water removal services
  • Sewage cleanup

Our SERVPRO teams prioritize steps that help protect the entire structure and vulnerable contents. Installing roof tarps and boarding up doors and windows are examples of such processes. If the roof caved in during the storm, we could protect contents by covering them with plastic sheets, thus ensuring no further moisture exposure.

A thorough cleanup is also essential after flooding. The process helps remove physical soils such as mud, silt, or even backed-up sewage. It is also essential in removing harmful chemicals or biohazards deposited in the property by floodwater. Our SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians utilize various methods, including using chemical agents, physical agitation with rotating brushes, or even pressure washing.

The Assistance from SERVPRO Helps Minimize All Fire Restoration Challenges

Fire affects fabrics in different ways, just like the other materials in your Clearwater Beach home. Fabrics differ in many ways, so it is possible to misunderstand some of the problems they exhibit or use the wrong approaches, thus worsening the damage. 

One advantage of seeking professional help when dealing with fire damage in your Clearwater Beach home is the expertise the restoration teams present. Apart from using the best restoration equipment and methods, the professionals can also help provide information that would be extremely difficult to get on your own. For instance, SERVPRO technicians can help identify the distinctive types of fabrics in the house or tell how the physical difference in diverse materials affects the restoration.

Fire restoration differs and may be classified as:

  • Smoke remediation
  • Water & fire damage restorations
  • House fire cleanup

Since each class of restoration work may present a unique set of challenges, SERVPRO teams start by gathering information about the loss site. For instance, we may start by establishing the type of fabrics affected during the fire incident.

Typical categorization may have broad groups like:

  • Textiles
  • Draperies
  • Upholstery

Our SERVPRO technicians can also identify the weave type of the affected materials and whether they are natural or synthetic fibers.

Taking the right steps when handling the restoration also helps. For instance, we perform pretests on different fabrics before cleaning to limit the chances of dyes bleeding or shrinkage. If we identify a heavily soiled yet sensitive material, our technicians can use less mild cleaning methods, even if it involves repeating the cleaning process. Repeat cleaning requires cleaning the material, letting it dry, and then cleaning it afresh.

Which Water Mitigation Processes are Necessary to Save Electronics in Clearwater Properties?

9/19/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Helps Establish Safeguards While Performing Water Damage Repairs

Water leaks affect many contents in a house, including electronics such as TVs, microwaves, stereos, and appliances. Unlike dealing with other items such as furniture, water mitigation involving electronics is challenging since it takes more than drying to reverse the damages. 

Successful water mitigation in your Clearwater home should help prevent corrosion of the internal components of your electronic appliances after a water leak. Even if the spilled water does not affect appliances directly, the high humidity in the house poses significant risks. SERVPRO takes steps to minimize the chances of corrosion while performing other restoration processes.

Damage to electronics is more likely during incidents involving significant amounts of water like:

  • Burst pipes
  • Ceiling leaks
  • Leaking roof from storms

The risk posed by water to electronics can be immediate or long-term.  Short circuits fall in the immediate damage category and can cause irreparable damage. Our SERVPRO technicians confirm that all electronics are unplugged. We also disconnect backup batteries and remove fuses or trip breakers. 

Temperature changes also pose risks to electronic items, especially in a humidity-filled house. Letting the items cool down beyond the dew point leads to condensation and corrosion. Our SERVPRO technicians take various steps to ensure the temperatures in the storage areas where we put electronics do not dip below the dew point. In case power is turned off in the house, we use portable generators and portable heaters.

SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach can take the necessary steps during water mitigation to save electronics or other valuable items in your home. Call us at (727) 614-0099. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

With the Right Equipment, SERVPRO Can Restore your Clearwater Home and Contents from Flood Damage

Flooding can spell disaster for your home and contents. When large quantities of water enter a home, it immediately begins to absorb and migrate into recesses. Natural furnishings, like hardwood, can absorb moisture or suffer exterior cosmetic damage through contact with contaminated floodwaters. It is vital to bring in professional help for restoring flooding issues like:

  • Leaking roof from storms
  • Ceiling repairs from water damages
  • Crawl space flooding cleanup 

Content restoration for flood damage in your Clearwater home can often be one of the most time-sensitive areas. Unlike the structure of your home, which can withstand exposure to water, furnishing can lose its luster or become permanently harmed through contact with water. Our technicians are fully trained to clean furniture from contamination and conduct a consistent drying process to ensure no further damage. One piece of equipment for drying large amounts of furniture quickly is an axial fan. 

  • Axial fans produce large amounts of airflow at a lower pressure than centrifugal air movers. 
  • More cubic feet of air moved can rapidly decrease the drying times for wet furniture or possessions. 
  • Axial fans can displace humid air and water vapor with drier air by relying on an open-system drying plan. 

Drying a property quickly can help to reduce losses. Contact SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach for flood damage restoration at (727) 614-0099.

SERVPRO Operates in Clearwater Beach and Can Provide Expert Water Damage Restoration Assistance

Ocean side businesses can be susceptible to water intrusion as a result of heavy rainfall and rising tides. A water emergency can scale anywhere from leaks or drips to flooding of lower levels, damaging stock, furniture and impacting business revenue. Our professional restoration technicians can recover your business quickly by implementing:

  • Water removal services
  • Water damage repairs
  • Cleaning up after sewer backup

The process of commercial water damage restoration for your Clearwater Beach business can be tough to navigate without expertise, equipment, and experience. 

Central to fast drying times is the movement of humid air from one area to another, where dehumidifiers can pick it up. Water restoration technicians (WRT) use centrifugal air-movers to encourage air circulation. Air-movers, unlike traditional fans, produce warm air at high velocity to ensure quicker drying of surfaces. 

  • Air-movers can be daisy-chained to allow multiple units to run from one power source and work in tandem to decrease drying time. 
  • The low profile of industrial air-movers allows warm air circulation to be focused onto wet floors or carpets. 
  • There are several positions for operating an air-mover that can concentrate drying apparatus to particular walls or wet areas in your business. 

If your business is suffering from water intrusion, contact SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach for water damage restoration at (727) 614-0099. Our business is to keep you in business.

Enacting fire damage restoration for your Clearwater home can help provide peace of mind by ensuring your home returns to a safe, habitable space.

Very few water restoration companies in Clearwater have the experience and expertise that SERVPRO has in dealing with the aftermath of water damage. Whether it is due to burst pipes, ceiling leaks, or basement flooding, SERVPRO has you covered. 

SERVPRO's team of IICRC certified experts who understand the local conditions makes it consistently stand out among other water restoration companies in Clearwater.

When Will SERVPRO Techs Carry out Controlled Demolition During Water Cleanup of Your Clearwater Home? 

SERVPRO follows the IICRC S500 Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration, which states that the restorers should open assemblies such as walls, stairs, or flooring to access pockets of saturation and remove any heavily contaminated material. 

As a result, sometimes it becomes a necessity for SERVPRO experts to remove construction components to decontaminate, clean, and dry the interior wall surfaces and other inaccessible areas. 

The material removed during the controlled demolition is then carefully bagged in a 6-mil polyethylene bag and discarded according to the local regulations. SERVPRO technicians always communicate with homeowners before undertaking any of these actions.

Consequently, SERVPRO mold specialists take preventive measures that minimize the risk to the occupants and the workers alike.

SERVPRO Professionals Have a Scientific Approach to Water Cleanup in Clearwater

Water cleanup from your Clearwater Beach commercial property involves much more than removing the standing water. The IICRC certified SERVPRO professionals use their knowledge of materials science to afford a quick and efficient water damage restoration.   

SERVPRO restorers understand the impact various factors might have on water cleanup from your Clearwater Beach property. We know that any structure, especially a commercial one, is not airtight, meaning it might leak. The conditions outside the building, such as temperature, humidity, and air movement, might significantly impact the water damage remediation process. One of the most critical factors that have a profound impact on the effectiveness of a drying plan is the building's envelope.  

What is an Envelope of a Building and How Can it Affect SERVPRO's Water Damage Repairs of Clearwater Beach Properties?

SERVPRO technicians of Clearwater Beach define the envelope of a building as a structure separating the inside of the building from the outside habitat. It includes roofs, floors, exterior walls, doors, windows, and foundations. According to IICRC S500 guidelines, the building envelope can be of three types:

  • Tight envelope- SERVPRO techs can control the internal drying conditions during water damage restoration without significant influence of the outside environment.
  • Moderate envelope- The internal conditions are influenced somewhat by the prevailing outside conditions.
  • Loose envelope- The internal drying conditions are significantly affected by the outside environment. Such a situation arises if there is any structural damage to the property.

Time is critical when handling flood damage in Clearwater Beach

After a flood, your home may have far too much standing water for you to handle. SERVPRO technicians are trained and experienced in handling large volumes of water in residential buildings.

One of your primary concerns after flood damage in Clearwater Beach should be removing as much water as possible in as little time as possible. For most homeowners, this can be an impossible task without help. Extracting pools of water from a house requires specialized and powerful equipment that is rarely seen outside of specialist companies like SERVPRO. Water extraction pumps may be used in:

  • Water Removal Services
  • Leaking Roof from Storms
  • Sewage Cleanup
  • Isolated areas such as garages

Most of the time, our portable water extractors can handle the situation in a matter of hours. These small but powerful tools contain built-in motorized pumps and 5-12 gallon storage tanks and can be fitted with custom hose endings. These features make them ideal for situations where a thin layer of water covers carpets and other flooring materials. After extracting as much water as possible through the pumps, we set up air movers, which create powerful air currents to pick up any remaining water droplets.

Fire damage in Clearwater Does Not Always Force a Move-Out

SERVPRO can complete most of our House Fire Clean Up projects without anyone moving out of the home. One of the first actions we take when responding to house fire damages is to ensure that your home stays livable if possible.

Clearwater fire damage often affects only one room in the house at a time. Under these circumstances, we work fast to seal off the area from the rest of the building in a process known as containment and stop the damage from spreading. Containment helps reduce restoration costs and ensures that other parts of the home remain functional while SERVPRO technicians work. Containment may happen for:

  • Fire and smoke damage in a garage
  • Water & Fire Damage Restorations in a bathroom or closet
  • Many kitchen fires

Other fires may affect most or all of the rooms in a house. Under these circumstances, some homeowners may have to move out temporarily. Still, whenever possible, we focus our immediate cleaning efforts on the essential parts of the home so that you do not need to leave. Within a few hours, SERVPRO technicians may return bedrooms and a bathroom to normal conditions. Procedures done at this step include deodorization and chemical removal of fire residues from surfaces, fabrics, and upholstery.

Other types of damage, such as burst pipes, may take days or weeks to produce foul odors but inevitably do. SERVPRO technicians are trained not just to eliminate odors but also to prevent them. Our rapid response strategy is critical for reducing odors from:

  • Water removal services
  • Cleaning up after a sewer backup
  • Flood restoration

SERVPRO technicians use multiple methods at once or in sequence to ensure that odors are eliminated at the source rather than masked. Less-experienced restoration professionals may mask odors with cleaning products and fresh paint but fail to address the real problem. Instead of ineffective “quick fixes,” we use advanced technologies such as air filtration devices coupled with activated charcoal. Depending on the severity and type of odors encountered, we also have thermal fogging machines and ozone generators to eliminate smells.

SERVPRO Wants Clearwater Area Residents Keeping Safe - Evacuate When Necessary!

Once a storm is here and disaster strikes, you may not be at home with your family. Because of this, you need to prepare your home and have an emergency plan to ensure everybody is as safe as possible. But, how can you tell when it is time to evacuate? SERVPRO wants to ensure all Clearwater residents are prepared and have their emergency contacts handy in a hurricane event.

Storms in Clearwater can be unpredictable, and hurricane categories will often dictate whether you can stay in your home or if evacuation is best. For example:

  • If you live in a mobile home park, you are considered high risk in Zone/Level A, which means you should evacuate.
  • Outside of a mobile home park, you could be in an evacuation zone.
  • You always have to evacuate your home once the zone you live in gets ordered.

How Can Homeowners Handle Storm Flood Damage in Clearwater?

"Call Now" - SERVPRO Don't wait, call SERVPRO right away for expert storm damage remediation services.

They Can Call SERVPRO to Perform Storm Flood Damage Restoration in their Clearwater Homes.

A flood is defined as the covering of land that has normally dry by water that has escaped or been released from the typical confines of any river, lake, natural watercourse, or creek, whether modified or altered or any canal reservoir or dam. On the other hand, storm damage refers to flooding caused by rainwater, tornadoes, hail, cyclones, and other similar elements. 

To deal with storm flood damage in Clearwater, it is essential to contact a certified restoration firm like SERVPRO to complete the work. You also need to lodge your claim with your insurance company to send an assessor to your residence. Assessors usually report on their findings that insurers use to decide whether to reject or accept the claim. 

If an assessor cannot assess the damage, they can hire a hydrologist. The report of a hydrologist usually contains information like:

  • The path the water took from where it broke its banks to your home.
  • Where along the lake, creek, dam, or river, the water broke.
  • The amount of rainfall before the banks broke.

SERVPRO offers 5-star storm flood damage restoration and drying services using advanced water extraction equipment. Apart from drying water from flooring and walls, we can check in crawl spaces, walls, and other hard-to-reach areas. Drying such areas requires ventilation. Wicking water slightly on walls close to baseboards is common even if water is not trapped in them. If there is water in the walls, we can remove the baseboards. Baseboards are normally made of wood in homes. To prevent damage when removing the baseboard, our SERVPRO technicians can use claw devices such as hammers, nail pullers, and thin boards to protect the wall. 

Nobody likes having a storm flood-damaged home. To get your home back to normal, call SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach at (727) 614-0099. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

SERVPRO Can Safely Store the Contents of your Clearwater Home When Restoring Fire Damage

Sometimes property fires can be so severe that it is necessary to remove your belongings from the property temporarily. These situations can seem complicated. However, SERVPRO has a tried and tested formula for contents removal in residential properties. Usually, the task is handled by production technicians under the supervision of a crew chief.

Contents removal may be necessary for:

  • Fire damage restoration 
  • Fire and smoke damage
  • Fire damaged homes

The process of storing contents during fire damage restoration in Clearwater may seem like a huge undertaking. With careful preparation and communication, we can create a move-out team that can clear the property without impacting the overall time frame of repair significantly.

  • Clearing a workspace is essential when carrying out structural repairs, so these areas are likely to be moved out first.
  • Precise coordination of non-salvageable and salvageable items is vital. Non-salvageable items can be discarded.
  • By setting up packing and inventory stations, we can increase a property move-out's accuracy and efficiency. 

A professional crew is required to conduct an efficient move-out procedure. Contact SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach at (727) 614-0099.

SERVPRO Uses Local Technicians to Conduct Water Damage Remediation for Residents of Clearwater

Returning property to a preloss condition requires expert equipment. When water is involved, this equipment may include water extractors, pumps, and drying equipment. If water contamination is present, technicians may use antimicrobial chemicals or deodorants inside the property. 

The goal of water damage restoration technicians in Clearwater is to return your home to a sanitary condition. Often the draining and drying procedure is the first step in achieving that goal. Once a property is dry, the likelihood of permanent or further damage is significantly reduced. Technicians can then conduct a walkthrough of the structure to identify areas in need of restoration.

  • Inspecting carpet seams is necessary after the drying procedure to ensure there is no permanent damage.
  • Drywall may need to be replaced if the materials have absorbed too much moisture.
  • SERVPRO can conduct painting and refinishing in the home if other restoration methods are ineffective.

Professionals can help to return your home to its preloss condition. Contact SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach for water damage restoration at (727) 614-0099.

SERVPRO Helps Clearwater Residents with Mold Remediation and Can Identify the Root Cause of Mold in your Bathroom

Clearwater is one of Florida's quieter holiday destinations that prioritizes gorgeous weather, beaches, and leisure over its close neighbor Miami's hectic nightlife. Since the mid-twentieth century, the small coastal city has been a popular holiday destination when city-dwellers began taking leisure holidays in the state's quieter townships. Clearwater beach is incredibly photogenic, with tiki bars that line the promenade, while Pier 60 is a popular walking destination with its arcade and entertainment. Like most of Florida, Clearwater maintains a solid connection to its Hispanic roots. Spanish American cuisine lines the thoroughfare, while contemporary theater productions are bookable throughout the year.

At its heart, Clearwater is a beach town. Most of the tourists passing through this region of Florida are focused on soaking up the sun or taking guided boat tours and cruises off the beach. The excellent Clearwater Marine Aquarium offers educational fun for all the family, with profits going primarily toward the study of marine life and conservation. Sand Key park beach is a fantastic leisure spot, while the palm-tree-lined beach walk is an iconic example of Floridian scenery. Out of the box, entertainment includes Sky Surfing over the bay and the Pinellas cycling trail. Visiting the many Hispanic restaurants in the historic old town is the perfect way to wind down after a long afternoon.

  • Starlite Majesty is the cruise ship of choice for visitors to Clearwater. The luxury cruise ship features dining rooms, cocktail bars, and an open-air upper deck. A standard trip lasts around three hours and can be taken during the day or evening.
  • Ruth Eckerd Hall is a stunning auditorium that the Taliesin Associated Architects designed. The center provides a rotating list of performance art and live music, attracting some of the biggest names in entertainment in the world. The auditorium seats 2,000 people for shows.
  • Capitol Theater in the historic old town district was initially constructed in the 1920s, making it one of the longest-lasting active theaters in Florida. The curated performances cover festive plays, traditional Shakespeare, and contemporary theater. 

SERVPRO of Clearwater Can Provide Expert Bathroom Mold Removal for your Home

Wetrooms are at a higher risk of suffering from mold issues. With consistent exposure to moisture and water vapor, traditional building materials can begin to support microbial growth. Mold is a common microbial organism that grows in warm, humid spaces. Over time, mold can break down materials requiring expensive removal or replacement. Using professional remediation technicians can help to reduce long-term costs. 

  • We are experts at restoring ceramic, resilient tiles, and hard flooring in residential properties. 
  • Using negative air pressure machines in the affected area can help to reduce the spreading of mold spores.
  • Our technicians can dispose of infectious waste professionally and legally. 
  • We can apply EPA-approved antimicrobial agents

storm damaged home Flood damage restoration is no DIY project. SERVPRO technicians are IICRC certified for any size job necessary.

SERVPRO utilizes a range of methods to restore your Clearwater home after you experience flood damage from a recent storm.

When Clearwater residents have significant rainfall that may lead to flooding, it is essential to react accordingly. Secondary damage becomes costly, especially if it develops into mold and mildew growth. At SERVPRO, our crew works fast to restore your home to pre-flood condition "Like it never even happened."

Regardless of the storm's severity, flood damage in Clearwater can become hazardous if moisture enters the home from the ground. Once our technicians arrive within four hours at your property, we inspect the situation to determine all water entry points. Water from a window generally gets considered Category 2, while most water infiltrating from the ground usually gets deemed Category 3. This water includes a broad spectrum of contaminants and potentially harmful microorganisms.

Some of the steps we take to mitigate and restore include:

  • Removal of all affected contents and building materials. Porous items such as carpeting and upholstery may have deep saturation, which often calls for complete removal and replacement. General Contractor License #: CBC-1250662
  • Sanitization of all structural wooden components. Our crew can sanitize the wooden studs and subfloors, using agents to kill off viruses, parasites, fungi, and bacteria.
  • Drying of affected contents to further move through the restoration process. After antimicrobials get applied to the surface, we work on drying structural elements with dehumidifiers and air movers.
