Mold Is Natural

5/21/2018 (Permalink)

Mold occurs naturally and has been around for a countless number of years like other living things. It is important to take note that dealing with mold can be a nuisance as well as a cause for concern. Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet. Mold spores thrive on moisture and 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, and we do not want you to go through this type of situation again as we know how stressful it may be.

What to Do in the Event of a Hurricane

5/21/2018 (Permalink)

  • Immediately after the storm subsides call your insurance agent or agents (if you have your homeowner's and car insurance with different companies) or the toll-free claims number and report all damages to your property and vehicles.
  • Next, photograph or videotape all the vehicle and property damage. Ideally, you also have photographed or videotaped your vehicles and property sometime before the storm. The "before and after" photographs or video will be a big help in determining how much damage occurred.
  • Make any minor repairs you can as soon as possible to prevent additional damage or break-ins and make yourself and your family as comfortable as possible. Be sure to save all your receipts so you can show them to the insurance adjuster. Do not start any major repairs until your insurance company's adjuster has inspected the property. Save the receipts from those projects as well.
  • If the storm flooded your property, disconnect all electrical appliances and electronic equipment and relocate them to a safe, dry place. Move any other damaged household or office items to a dry part of the property.
  • If the damageis considerable, identify your property by putting a plywood sign out front with the address and your insurance company's name. If you can't or don't want to stay there, include your telephone number.
  • Once your insurance company has reached a final settlement, choose an experienced, reputable contractor to finish the repairs you couldn't do yourself. Ask the contractor (and anyone you know) for references and then check them out.
  • Be wary of any contractor who asks for full payment before starting the job. After a major storm, unethical or unqualified contractors often prey upon desperate homeowners. They demand high prices, with payment upfront, and then do substandard or incomplete work before leaving the area with your money.

We are Here for Your Business Duct Cleaning Needs

5/2/2018 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO New Smyrna- Titusville, we are here for all your commercial cleaning needs. While some smaller commercial buildings utilize similar or even identical equipment found in residential construction, larger commercial properties will be serviced by more complex machinery. Keeping a multi-story commercial building heated in the winter and cooled in the summer requires very large air handling equipment that moves tremendous volumes of air. This machinery, combined with complicated duct work, requires highly trained and experienced professionals to ensure not only the cleanliness of the system, but also the integrity of the system itself.

Additionally, many large commercial buildings utilize systems that may include turning vanes, fresh air intake, mixing boxes, filter boxes, and very large heating/cooling coils. All these components must be treated with care and precision as damage to any of these may result in a deficiency of the system that will appear after the cleaning.

We are a local company that is available to respond to your request for service quickly, and we will work diligently until the work is complete. To set up an appointment with our crew, call us today at (321) 264-0205.

Industry Certification
Just because a company is certified doesn't mean they are necessarily competent. What it does mean is that they took the time and effort to get their staff properly trained on the most current process and procedures. By having a certification, it means that training will be ongoing to keep up to date with the newest technological advances in the industry.

Answering the Phone
A good restoration company can talk to you around the clock, any day. Allowing you to talk to an actual human being and in emergency situations you will receive same day service. If you reach a voicemail claiming to call you back the next day, it’s safe to say that this won’t be the company you will be contracting for work.

Are you Ready for an Emergency?

4/20/2018 (Permalink)

Make a Plan. Work with you family and neighbors to make an emergency plan for the types of disasters that affect your area. Make sure everyone in your family understands where to go and what to do in case of an emergency. You can download Family Emergency Plan templates here.

Check Your Policy. Review your insurance policy annually and make any necessary changes – renters, too! When a disaster strikes, you want to know that your coverage will get you back on your feet.

Make a Ready List. You may not need all the items in ready-made preparedness kits. Choose the essentials that fit your needs and budget. Don’t forget to keep supplies at work and in your car and keep updated contact information of family and friends. Sample Ready Lists can be found here.

Plan Your Purchases.  Don’t buy preparedness items just before a storm when they’re expensive and supplies will be in high demand. Buy items at the end of the season when you can get good deals.

Make Sure It Keeps. Store water in safe containers. You don’t need to buy expensive bottled water, just make sure your water containers are disinfected and airtight.

The best tip: start now. Take small steps toward preparedness and before you know it you will be Ready

Flood Dangers

2/26/2018 (Permalink)

If you must walk in any flood waters, wear sturdy shoes which will protect your feet from hidden debris in the water which could trip or cut you. Hip waders are a good idea as well, since flood waters can be contaminated, even if to the naked eye they look clean. Look out for snakes or other critters which have been displaced by the flood, and do not ever put your hands anywhere you cannot see first. When all else fails, and you are not sure about going into your building, wait for the professional remediation technicians to arrive. They are aware of all the procedures and steps to take to keep themselves and others safe, plus SERVPRO will have all the protective gear to wear as they are checking everything out for you.

Mold Remediation Useful Knowledge of Mold Give us a call today. We can help make it "Like it never even happened"

At SERVPRO New Smyrna Beach we can help in any situation including Mold. Here are a few useful facts about it. Mold is a form of fungi that grows in moist dark places. Most dry areas in and outside the home have levels of mold that are not harmful. It is when moist and damp conditions encourage the growth of mold and spores that hazardous conditions can form. Mold will grow on any organic material including drywall, wood plaster, carpeting and ceiling tiles. Mold can grow on brick and block because it is porous and retains moisture. Mold growth can be a variety of textures and colors – black, gray, white, orange, gray-green, pink or purple.

Some molds create a substance called mycotoxins that can affect your health. Mold can spread, and the problem can worsen if not treated by a mold removal professional that is trained to handle hazardous and deadly materials.
