Commercial Water Removal Dunedin – Protecting Your Contents

A SERVPRO employee cleaning a grey flooring with water damage Water damage to your Dunedin business can bring large issues, let us help.

Let SERVPRO’s expertise assist you through your Dunedin commercial water loss.

Plumbing fittings inside walls or under employee kitchen sinks can break at any time. If it is during regular office hours, an employee may observe the water and turn off the main water valve to limit the damage. A break during non-office hours when no one is around can lead to hundreds of gallons of water spreading over the entire office to greet employees when arriving for work in the morning. A break like this example can lead to closing the office and sending everyone home until the water is removed and the office is returned to normal.

SERVPRO provides commercial water removal services in Dunedin and surrounding areas. We are available 24/7 and can be onsite in less than 4 hours. We have operated in the Dunedin area for over 35 years and know how important it is to respond fast to water disasters of all types. We also offer our Emergency READY Program (ERP) to customers who appreciate the value of emergency planning to manage emergencies of all types.

Drying Structure and Floors 

Our experience has shown that whenever carpets sitting on cement floors become wet, the carpet separates from the backing. This process is called delamination. In many cases, the carpets and padding must be removed and replaced. Office furniture is either moved to a dry area or supported on blocks while floors are dried. Extensive water leaks may require flood cuts along the walls to expose the inside of the wall to enable complete drying.

Customers interested in joining our ERP program can work with one of our employees to create a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile. Once we develop a profile, it helps everyone involved in a disaster to initiate the appropriate response. For example, we include phone numbers to call to trigger assistance, location of water shutoff valves and keys to locked rooms, and much more. This information can reduce the reaction time significantly, limit the damage, and the time the business must shut down until we complete repairs.

We also have Contractor Licenses: General: CBC1250662, Mold Remediation: MRSR1163 enabling our company to provide a full suite of services from water removal to drying, damage repair, and reconstruction.

Call SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060 for 24/7 service. We proudly serve Harbor Bluffs, Indian Rocks Beach, and surrounding areas. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

A customer review “You were a 'lifeline' for us through the entire process.” Written on a black background. Call SERVPRO of Largo today, we want to help you all the way through!

Our team will be there for your water damage in Dunedin. 

On December 4th, in the very early morning hours, water damage occurred in our condo unit. Your company, SERVPRO of Largo, came immediately to mitigate the water. The monitoring, the drying period, and the tear-out for renovation was completed by December 27th.

Following the Christmas holiday, we assumed workmen would resume work, but we sat idle. No one showed up. Our frustration grew. On December 30th , we met with you to learn what would happen next. We were very stressed. The destruction had happened nearly a month ago and we had to turn family away from visiting us for the holiday. Due to the holiday, we went days without any action, and that elevated our stress level. So... when you came for our first face-to-face meeting, we unloaded on you with our complaints and concerns. You listened patiently, absorbed our distress, and you were so calm that you defused the situation and immediately earned our respect! You talked us through the process of selecting the company we would choose to begin the reconstruction. You assured us that we had the option of selecting the company for reconstruction if we wanted to be in control of each step of the renovation (as per a project manager role), or choosing SERVPRO to handle it. As we spoke with you, you presented facts to consider, you reassured us that if we chose SERVPRO, the completed work would look "Like it never even happened." You stated that if anything was not to our approval, you would work to make it right. We believed you.

We carefully considered our choices. We asked you if we chose to go with SERVPRO, how would it work?  You said you would first receive the adjuster's report, assess the damage, write up a step-by-step for the renovation, and show the cost for each step in the renovation. You would send us this bid, and if we chose to go with SERVPRO, we would sign an agreement that could be presented to our insurance company. You promised to send us the bid that night.  True to your word, you did. (In fact, anytime you said you would do something, you followed through!)

When we reviewed the bid and signed the agreement, we said we'd like your best team to be assigned to us, so who would you recommend? You immediately answered:

"Medji, and his team". We met you on January 6th You arranged for the green wallboard installation. You also had arranged for us to meet Medji for the first time. Three days later, the wallboard installation was complete. In preparation for the renovation, we sent you and Medji 6 pages of diagrams and many pictures of the kitchen before the water damage.

Over time we met Medji's good team of hard-working men: Espiro, Romano, Gazi, Landie. They did every task as Medji instructed. Their care of our property was commendable. They fixed things as if it was their own. We respected the pride they took in their work, and the desire to please us. We also respected the creative and careful approach that Medji took to replace the cabinets and island with like-to-like product, and to follow the footprint of the original island (an important detail, since the space in the kitchen is tight.)

The major work was accomplished by February 3rd, just 2 months after the disaster!  It was completed with skill and care, and when walking through the finished condo, it looked the same as it originally had... nothing out of place, and no evidence that anything had ever happened! Later, Medji called us and set a time on Feb. 13th to complete the final tick list. Again, a happy surprise! In today's "work style", it is not usual for a company to complete a job in such a timely fashion.

We are writing this evaluation to state how completely happy we are that we met you, we trusted you, and you came through for us. We were happy with each team that came to perform a task related to this catastrophe. We remain completely delighted with the work that Medji and his fine team of men did for us. We thank Universal Insurance for having the special relationship with your company to provide excellent work and to be paid directly through our insurance.

Special thanks to you, Allen, for representing SERVPRO in such an excellent manner. You are an amazing asset to your company. Your personality, your listening skills, your demeanor, and your professionalism gave us confidence in you and belief in your company. You orchestrated the entire process to move through each stage, with different teams of workers. Any time we called, texted or emailed you, you responded in a timely fashion. You were a "lifeline" for us through the entire process.

We are very appreciative to all of you. Cyrilla and Carey B. Dunedin FL.

SERVPRO Has a Large Inventory of Water Removal Devices for Belleair Beach Water Losses

Water Cleanup In Belleair Beach Can Involve Using Stationary Tools

If you ever have an appliance malfunction inside your Belleair Beach home, the machine could spill several gallons of liquid H2O into your residence in a short time. The first step of water cleanup after you have an appliance break is to extract as much moisture as possible while it is still a liquid. Once your building materials and contents start to get saturated, and the humidity rises inside your house or condo, the moisture removal process gets more difficult.

During water cleanup in Belleair Beach, extraction can remove the majority of the liquid H2O if it takes place promptly. When conducting the initial extraction phase, our SERVPRO technicians can use a variety of equipment. For the power to suck up the moisture, we can implement either a heavy-duty truck-mounted extractor (rarely needed for a small spill from an appliance) or a portable unit. We can then attach several different tools to the extractor to get used on the various surfaces inside your home.

For example, when extracting from hard-surfaced floors, our SERVPRO crew can use a handheld extraction wand to soak up excessive moisture. Thick carpets, though, can require the use of specialized extraction tools. One type of tool that is often used during the extraction of high-fiber carpets is a stationary tool.

Stationary tools extract moisture from thick carpet and padding by using the weight of the operator. The SERVPRO technician stands upon the unit, and the carpeting gets compressed so that more moisture can get pulled up by the extractor's vacuum system. These units are available in different sizes. Smaller devices can be used in areas of your house that contain narrow strips of carpeting. The larger stationary extraction tools can pull water from a section of carpet up to 200 square inches in size.

The stationary tools can get used to extract wet carpet one section at a time. When using this type of extraction tool, the operator stands on the unit for ten to fifteen seconds at a time. The more time each section gets, the more liquid can get vacuumed up into the extraction waste tank. Then for room size areas, we can ride a Rover, like a lawnmower, only an extractor.

If one of your appliances ever malfunctions or leaks, call SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060 any day of the week. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

We Are Available 24/7 For All Your Belleair Beach Flood Damage Restoration

A Quick Response to Flood Damage in Your Belleair Beach Home Can Prevent Further Losses

Flooding problems in Belleair Beach have been at the forefront for some time. For instance, the city’s stormwater system is aging, and its infrastructure is undersized or unmaintained. Barnacles may clog some outfalls, and at times, bay water backs up into upstream sewers, and this leads to flooding.

The conditions mentioned above overwhelm the drainage system when there is a torrential downpour in the city. When flood damage happens in Belleair homes, the results can be devastating. You need to handle the issue correctly to prevent costly destruction. You can call SERVPRO to perform flood damage cleanup. A speedy response helps prevent substantial secondary destruction.

We can perform a thorough inspection ion your home to note all affected building materials and contents so that we can restore them to their pre-damaged state whenever possible. If some contents are restorable, our team can organize for restoration. If not, we can dispose of the ruined materials properly.

To remediate flood-damaged or microbially contaminated houses effectively, it is necessary to use the right techniques to promote rapid drying and eradicate contaminated materials. Our restoration specialists can remove the debris and extract the floodwater using powerful portable pumps to prevent further damage. We can apply EPA-registered broad-spectrum disinfectants after extracting the floodwater to control microbial growth and to make the job site safer for our crew.

Moisture can cause mold infestation, especially in hard to reach areas of your home. Our crew can set up air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your property thoroughly. Remember that the duration in which air moving and dehumidification equipment is used to dispel the remnant of water vapor in your house depends on how much moisture there was. After running the drying equipment for some time, our SERVPRO crew can use hygrometers to ascertain that the affected structures and contents are dry.

When it comes to restoring your flooded home to normal, there is no big challenge our crew cannot handle. We have the workforce, tools, and skills to resolve the situation quickly so that you can go back to your daily routine.

If you experience flood damage in your home, SERVPRO of Largo can help with floodwater removal and cleanup. Contact us at (727) 586-0060 any day anytime for fast, efficient restoration services.

Stain and Water Cleanup in Indian Rocks Beach

It is lovely to have a condo on the beach with the ocean mere steps from your door, but the elements can be tough on both the inside and outside of your home. It is impossible to avoid bringing in sand, dirt, sunscreen residue, and moisture into your condo when you reside near the beach. It is considered a small price to pay for the luxury of being near the ocean. However, having a pipe burst within your kitchen can cause additional clean up on top of the daily routine.

Dealing with water cleanup in Indian Rocks Beach is unique because sand and debris brought in from the beach can add additional cleanup to your condo. In such a small space, water from the kitchen pipes may leak into your living room carpet. Water compounded with debris can create spots and stains in carpet and upholstery that require some extra attention on top of removing the water from the pipe bursting.

If you notice a stain after the pipe burst, you can spot and flush immediately using a mild detergent like SERVPRO's Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner for water-based soils and a dry solvent like Solvent Spotter for oil-based soils. However, you may be preoccupied with sopping up water and not notice the soiled spots on your carpet. Older stains may be more challenging to remove.

The first step in dealing with soil in your carpet is to determine what kind of soil is staining your carpet. Chances are at the beach, you are dealing with the insoluble soil of sand in your carpet. While using a portable extractor to remove the excess water from your carpet, technicians may notice some sand suctioning away with the water. However, any remaining sand can be dry vacuumed after the carpet is clean.

Water-soluble soils such as salt from the ocean may also be an issue and are best removed with a water-based product. Sunscreen, on the other hand, is an oil-soluble soil and consists of oily hydrocarbon components, which can be more challenging to remove. The best tactic is to use oil-based spotting products or use water-based alkaline products such as SERVPRO's StainZap to emulsify the soil for easy removal.

Removing water damage and stains from your home may require specific care and products, but SERVPRO (General Contractor #General: CBC1250662) aims to make it "Like it never even happened." Contact SERVPRO of Largo 24/7 at (727) 586-0060.

Flood Damage Restoration In Your Belleair Bluffs Home

2/7/2020 (Permalink)

flood damaged property Correct measuring of water can significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to restore your home.

Using Accurate Measurements to Structure Flood Damage Restoration in your Belleair Bluffs Home

Issues with the plumbing system in your home can quickly result in a flooding emergency. These issues are especially prevalent during the winter months when weather can be more extreme. It is vital to regularly conduct checks of your internal and external plumbing to ensure pipes and drains are capable of working correctly under extreme conditions like the heavy rainfall typically associated with a storm. Despite conducting all the best practices, some unfortunate homeowners may still find themselves facing a water emergency in their home.

The advantage of using professional flood damage restorers in your Belleair Bluffs home is that you can ensure all elements of harm are brought under control. Water can migrate quickly from one area of the home to another. It may also enter wall cavities or subfloor in as little as a few hours. Removing standing water from the home but failing to address water migration can result in secondary microbial growth issues. SERVPRO technicians are trained in the assessment and restoration you need to get your home back on track.

To accurately assess the extent of damage in a property with the flooding, we need to use a range of measuring equipment. Moisture sensors can detect the amount of moisture residing in a porous material, and moisture probes can accurately depict the moisture content. Certain natural materials like wood can absorb significant amounts of moisture. When moisture levels rise above 12%, there is a high risk of warping or cupping. SERVPRO technicians take regular measurements to ensure that water damages are kept to a minimum.

Assessment of the home may require removing physical barriers or obstacles. These procedures can become time-consuming as it requires the removal of sections of drywall. It can also be invasive to the home. SERVPRO technicians can avoid removal materials in the home by using thermal imaging cameras. These equipment use infrared rays to assess the temperatures of surfaces. Cooler surfaces may indicate the presence of water behind a wall or beneath a floor.

Correct measuring of water can significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to restore your home. Contact SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060, now.

The Definitive Guide to Belleair Bluffs Storm Damage Remediation

Equipment to Dry Out Flooded Homes in Belleair Bluffs

While our initial mitigation process focuses must on extraction and content management for Belleair Bluffs homes after a flooding situation, other actions must begin shortly after that. The faster that drying steps can start, the more likely it becomes that our SERVPRO team can restore and protect exposed construction materials and contents in the house.

While contamination is a threat of natural flooding scenarios, there are many situations where structural breaches during a storm can allow for flood damage in Belleair Bluffs homes. While extraction must occur first with tools like our electric submersible pumps and extractor trucks to remove the standing water throughout damaged areas of the residence, drying out the materials afterward requires equally powerful equipment.

Air movers have become the centerpiece of our drying efforts for decades, and the science behind them changes very little from one year to the next. Their premise is simple in that they send high-velocity bursts of air into a moist environment and against saturated materials to begin an evaporative drying process. Centrifugal air movers can help with a direct saturated point in a material, but axials are useful for widespread flooding in the larger homes of the area.

Axial air movers are one of the staples of widespread drying efforts by our SERVPRO team, as these units can deliver lower pressure at high volumes, which can allow their output to affect more significant open areas. Axials have a higher cubic feet per minute (CFM) output than centrifugal options and consume less power in generating that higher CFM, which can also make them an ideal choice when running a generator is the only available power source in recovery.

Flooding is a situation that many area homes might have to face, but with the right professional assistance, it does not have to be as costly or devastating as it might initially seem. Our SERVPRO of Largo team has a fast response to storm damages, including large loss situations. We have the skills and cutting-edge equipment to make flood damage “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (727) 586-0060.

SERVPRO Uses Technology to Locate Moisture in Your Dunedin Home

1/30/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO drying equipment stacked inside storage facility Water damage? We have the instrumentation to locate moisture and equipment to dry your home.

During Water Removal in Dunedin There are Many Instruments Used to Find Moisture

If your house in Dunedin ever suffers from any plumbing failure, damage to your contents and building materials could result. If water removal is conducted promptly by a professional restoration company like SERVPRO, many of your possessions and building's structural components could are salvageable. In some situations, excessive moisture can ruin items inside your home, such as your carpet and pad.

However, if restoration procedures get implemented correctly, our SERVPRO technicians can often prevent some items inside your home from having to be removed and replaced. The first step to water removal in your Dunedin residence is to find the source of the leak. Once we locate where moisture is entering your structure, we can then take steps to either temporarily or permanently fix the problem. After the leak gets repaired and no more moisture is entering your building, we then can then attempt to figure out where the moisture traveled.

One aspect that sets SERVPRO apart from other restoration companies is the moisture detection instruments we have at our disposal. During every restoration project, we use a variety of different tools to test for the presence of moisture as well as take readings of your house's indoor environment. When extracting water and drying out wet materials, it helps our team to know where the water went. We also test the temperature and humidity inside your home to figure out how we can create an environment that is favorable for rapid drying.

During many plumbing failure situations, your carpet and other floors are the first to get wet. When figuring out what sections of your carpet got wet, we can use a moisture sensor. The sensor consists of a handle with two probes, and should the carpet be wet, the instrument beeps and the handle lights up.

We can also use other moisture meters to get a level of how wet an item is. For example, we can use a non-penetrating moisture meter that can find where areas of your drywall are wetter than others. We can also use a penetrating moisture meter that gets hammered into wooden items like your wall studs to give us a moisture number. When testing your home for wet materials, we take measurements in affected areas and rooms that didn't get wet to come up with a drying goal.

For professional assistance after you notice a water leak, call SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060 24/7 because We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
