Storm Damage The Storm Has Passed, But What Has It Left Behind? SERVPRO of East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch can respond immediately to your emergency.

As many homeowners in Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch are aware, there are many challenges to face when a serious storm hits. Seeking safety, inspecting damage, and reviewing insurance coverage are only a few steps on the list.


Mold can arrive in a flood's wake, as moisture left behind has a way of lingering and serving as the perfect setting for growth.


Here are a few pointers to help you prevent mold growth after flood damage.


1. Inspect the Area

Addressing a flood-damaged home can easily become a tremendous task. Depending on the severity of the storm and subsequent destruction, you may have many spots in the house to repair. When looking over your house after the storm's aftermath, make sure to comb over all the hidden corners for mold. Flooding can bring moisture that may hang around and cause mold to grow.

2. Get to Cleaning


Because the cleanup process depends on the seriousness of the storm's effects on your home, it is important to catch all places that have become damaged by a flood. Drywall, carpets, and other permeable materials may need to be replaced. A professional can also help you get a clearer picture of the state of your home, as mold removal might be another task on the list.

3. Keep Places Dry


After the long string of events that consist of relocating to safer areas, inspecting the damage, and going through the process of cleanup, you might assume the work is over. Although this is true for the most part, mold growth can occur long after the storm has made its debut. By maintaining a clean, dry living space, you can reduce your chances of this fungal nuisance.

Don't Let Water Damage Destroy Your East Bradenton /Lakewood Ranch Home or Business

6/7/2019 (Permalink)

There are some simple things you can do to protect your home or business. For example, update your windows and doors. Look for watertight options in new windows and doors. Older wood windows should be cleaned, repainted and re-stained periodically. Cracks in trim should be resealed. Glazing compound around older windows should be replaced as needed.
It's a good idea to regularly check your roof for signs of damage, such as excessive wear on shingles or missing shingles. Contacting a plumber to inspect the condition of the pipes in your home. Much home piping has a lifespan of 50 to 80 years, PVC pipes may need to be replaced every 25 to 40 years. You may need to add or update drainage. Use gutters and downspouts to make sure water is diverted away from your home and its foundation.
If water damage has been a serious problem in your home's lower level try adding a sump pump. Choose a cast iron pump, which may last longer, and consider buying a backup battery-powered pump in case the power goes out. Test your pump twice a year or as suggested by the manufacturer. Seal your basement. Thick coatings, paint and silicate-based sealers may help minimize or prevent water damage. Each method varies in application and cost. Remember to replace washing machine supply hoses. Plan for new ones every three to five years as part of a proactive maintenance plan.
No matter how much you prepare with regular maintenance, water damage can still be a frightening reality.

After Commercial Water Damage It's Time To Decide What Should Stay and What Has To Go

6/7/2019 (Permalink)

When a business floods it is a serious matter. Depending on the extent of the damage, it might feel like the end of the world. It doesn’t need to be, you may be able to salvage much of your inventory and other items in your business. Here’s how to handle cleaning your commercial property after a flood.
Furniture and Carpets
Take furniture outside, brush off any mud and remove any drawers or doors. Determine the material of each item and use commercial cleaning products designed for those materials. Set the furniture away from direct sunlight and allow it to dry. This could take weeks or months, depending on the item. Once thoroughly dry, you can refinish and wax. Spread carpets outside and hose them off. Use a professional carpet cleaner on soiled items. Rinse the solution out using 2 tablespoons of colorfast bleach per gallon of water, unless the carpet is wool. Dry the carpet and its subfloor, keeping in mind that you may need a professional to re-stretch it as you reinstall it. Dry cleaning may be an option for some items. No matter what, always hire a professional water cleanup company to assist you and ensure your business does not fall victim to mold.
SERVPRO® of East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch provides 24 hour fire and water damage restoration service.
Flooding and water emergencies don’t wait for regular business hours and neither do we. SERVPRO® of East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch provides emergency cleaning and restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—including all holidays.
Damaged Food Items and Kitchen Inventory
Unfortunately, if you run a restaurant, you may find that you do need to dispose of much of your inventory after a flooded company. However, you may still be able to save some of it. Any undamaged foods that are in all-metal cans or retort pouches are salvageable. Remove their labels, wash and rinse the cans and disinfect them. You can use a solution of 1 tablespoon of bleach per gallon of water. Once sanitized, use a marker to write the food and its expiration date on the can.
When it comes to utensils, you can wash and sanitize metal and ceramic items. You will need to toss out anything wooden or plastic, such as the following:
• Plastic utensils and dishes
• Plastic storage containers
• Wooden cutting boards or utensils

Smoke and Soot Damage Can Cause a Pervasive Odor in Your East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch Home.

6/7/2019 (Permalink)

After a fire is completely put out it can still be dangerous to you and your family. The smoke and soot that lingers can be dangerous to everyone in your residence and cause health complications. Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action. 
According to USFA:
It is important to understand the risk to your safety and health even after the fire is out. The soot and dirty water left behind may contain things that could make you sick. Be very careful if you go into your home and if you touch any fire-damaged items. You can learn more at www.usfa.fema.gov
If you experience fire damage in East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch here are some things to consider:
Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.
Different Types of Smoke
There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO® East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:
Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber
Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.
Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood
Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.
Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire
Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. SERVPRO® East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch Fire Damage Restoration Services

Clearing Up The Confusion About Proper Mold Remediation

5/30/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Clearing Up The Confusion About Proper Mold Remediation Mold is serious and we are too!

Mold can grow quickly in the humid environment we experience here on the Florida Gulf Coast. 

How do I identify a mold problem?
Check the air and surfaces in the area. If you notice a musty smell, then you have a mold problem. Additionally, different types of mold discolor surfaces with black and/or green specks. Look for mold in bathrooms, windows, crawl spaces, air conditioners, ventilation systems, leaky roofs, attics and basements.


Why have I found mold in several areas?
All fungi, like mold, release spores that travel along air currents. Unless a mold-infested area is sealed off, the spores spread throughout a building. Outdoor mold spores can also cling to the surfaces of people, pets and objects.


Why does mold grow in air ducts?
Poor duct maintenance and moisture from humidity or plumbing, wall or roof leaks give  mold spores the perfect dark habitat for growth. The experienced team at SERVPRO East Bradenton/Lakewood Ranch use time-tested techniques to remove any mold growth and fix the source of the problem.


Can I use bleach to remove mold?
Liquid bleach is the wrong choice for several reasons: Bleach can't successfully penetrate all surfaces -- especially some porous materials -- and since it is wet it will help any missed mold regrow. Worse yet, bleach can hide a deeply rooted mold problem from a mold restoration and remediation firm like SERVPRO.


Do I need additional testing if I already know that I have mold in my home?
Testing determines the type of mold and the amount of cleaning that must be done to completely restore an area.


Can I use a DIY test kit?
Although DIY kits are inexpensive, they often provide false positive results. They also don't offer the data needed to determine the type of mold or the amount of spores in the air.


How can I remove mold growth and spores from my home?
The best way is to hire a licensed mold remediation firm. Only a qualified and licensed expert, such as SERVPRO of East Bradenton/Lakewood Ranch, can evaluate the problem and perform the correct tasks to remove mold from the air and surfaces, clean the infested area and safeguard against future growth.

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If you have a mold question or believe you have a problem, please give us a call 941-747-2333.

Minimize Plumbing Issues in Your Commercial Business By Being Proactive

5/29/2019 (Permalink)

Water damage in East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch

What would a major plumbing issue do to your business today? Having a commercial plumber on hand is great, but sometimes having the information to prevent commercial plumbing disasters can make a real difference.

Preventative maintenance is one of the most important things a business owner can do to protect their property, the tenants, and employees. It makes sense to have routine inspection of plumbing, sprinklers, pumps, and drains. While the inspection schedule for any of these items may vary, at least one full-scale inspection per year is recommended.

Fix minor issues before they become major ones. Inspections are useless if problems are identified and not addressed. The whole point in performing inspections is to find and resolve issues while they are still small. It's a bad idea to wait until the issue grows into plumbing problems that can temporarily close down your business. If owners can commit to performing annual inspections and fixing small issues before they become substantial issues.

Find help that you can count on. Being proactive about plumbing issues involves routine maintenance, but it also means finding 24/7 help. Call SERVPRO of East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch as soon as possible to minimize additional damage. Before mold or other issues cost you more contact SERVPRO of East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch (941) 747-2333. The longer water is left standing, the more likely mold growth will become a problem. Mold can begin to grow in a flooded commercial site in 24 to 72 hours. Contact SERVPRO of East Bradenton / Lakewood Ranch to eliminate standing water.
