Understanding the Threat of Mold Damage

Did you know that mold affects thousands of Florida homes every year? With mold's impact on your daily life, many do not leave its removal up to chance. Many homes and businesses in the city rely on our experienced remediation professionals to help when they suspect mold.

Is Mold a Threat?

Pompano Beach mold damage might be one of the more underrated threats to homes and businesses. With the damage it can do to your property, belongings, and comfortable living conditions, it directly opposes your everyday routines. Mold is likelier in some areas than others, including:

  • Attics
  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens
  • Crawlspaces
  • Garages

Could Mold Be in Your Home?

If you believe mold might exist in your home, you should act quickly to counteract its destructive effects. Unfortunately, it is not always a glaring sign when microbial growth begins. Homeowners should learn to recognize more subtle signals of possible mold development, such as:

  • Odors – Odors can be a good indicator of mold development, especially when physical signs are absent. Musty smells are a byproduct of active colonies, so the stronger this malodor, the closer to the living organism.
  • Wet Surfaces – Persistent dampness is a potential red flag for mold development in your house. Microbial colonies can form in as little as 48 hours, so long-standing wet surfaces have likely already become a hospitable environment for mold.
  • Spotting - When mold is visible in its earliest stages, it appears as irregular spots where moisture has been a concern. These spots can be an array of colors like green, black, yellow, and orange.

What Happens During Remediation?

Every property is unique regarding cleaning up after mold damage or working to restore the home to its preloss condition. While individual steps might be necessary based on the impact on a residence, nearly all mold remediation approaches are specific priorities. These can include:

  • Containing the Organism – The first step of microbial remediation is containment. With physical barriers and negative pressure, we can prevent colonization's continued spread and severity.
  • Removing Airborne Spores – Air filtration can be important to mold and microbial cleanup. Clearing active spores in areas of the house with HEPA filtration and negative air machines prevents the situation from worsening.
  • Removing Active Mold – Remediation involves several steps and stages, but most notably, specific actions get taken to eliminate active organisms using materials as hosts. Surface cleaning can work, but professionals must often utilize aggressive or abrasive tactics to finish the job.
  • Neutralizing Harsh Odors – Strong, musty smells are a typical byproduct of mold development, so SERVPRO AMRT technicians must overcome this formidable malodor with neutralizing compounds, deodorization equipment, and surface cleaning strategies.
  • Returning Contents – With the damage removed and the odors neutralized, contents and personal belongings from the house can be returned. Our move-back process involves a final assessment of damage before SERVPRO professionals place items where they belong in the house "Like it never even happened."

Repairing Post-Mold Structural Damage

Because mold organisms use hosting materials as a food source for the colony, the structural integrity of these elements begins to deteriorate the longer microbial growth is present. It is often necessary to rebuild or repair portions of a property after a mold damage event, especially when controlled demolition is needed to overcome the infestation. Our SERVPRO professionals have a general contractor license to help in this regard, allowing an easy transition from mold removal and cleanup to reconstruction and build-back services.

Pompano Beach mold damage is more common than many property owners might think. These situations are a continual concern for a coastal community's condos, homes, and businesses. Let our SERVPRO of Pompano Beach remediation team help by calling (954) 970-4942.

SERVPRO Helps Control Mold Growth in Pompano Beach Residences

Mold damage happens naturally in virtually all homes. Mold spores travel airborne and grow quietly, especially in high-humidity environments. Expectations of total mold eradication are unrealistic, but there are certainly some steps homeowners can take to keep it under control. However, even the most cautious people may encounter mold damage in basements, attics, and behind cabinets. Resorting to a reputable company is your best option to protect your home.

In Pompano Beach, look to SERVPRO for mold damage control. Suppose you wonder why it is critical to hire a team like ours once you call our 24/7 hotline. In that case, you won’t wonder anymore—our professionalism and deep understanding of the mold remediation process come from when we answer the phone. When the crew arrives with industry-grade cleaning solutions and equipment, you’ll confirm that you made the right decision.

Like many other things, being attentive to changes in your home can help you attack excessive mold growth early on and prevent a bigger problem. The following events should prompt you to be extra attentive to a change in your home that could develop into a widespread mold issue-

  • A plumbing or structural leak allows water to collect and stand for extended periods.
  • A change in the smell of your home, especially in darker spaces like closets and cabinets. Sometimes even a musty smell on your clothes can point to a mold problem.
  • Changes in your walls and ceilings, such as discoloration or brown spots.

SERVPRO of Pompano Beach is quick and effective in mold remediation and restoration. Reach us by calling (954) 970-4942 and let us work diligently until your home feels “Like it never even happened.”

Get Your Emergency Preparedness Plan Started

2/17/2022 (Permalink)

Managing a company requires complete commitment. As a consequence, running a business is often not just a full-time job, it’s also an overtime job. You manage personnel, payroll and keep up to date with an ever-changing world, all while contending in the marketplace, innovating and maintaining a professional image on social media. It’s a lot, and walking this fragile tightrope is difficult.

That is why it very often takes only one disaster to permanently crumble a business. According to FEMA, 40% of small businesses fail to reopen after a catastrophic event, and a quarter of those that do reopen fail to stay open for over a year afterward. 

In light of recent pandemic closures and an unpredictable future, it is more critical than ever for companies to have a sound emergency plan in place. But some 75% of small businesses lack a disaster recovery plan, which must change.

SERVPRO takes pleasure in aiding companies in our community in building an Emergency Ready Plan. We’ll assist you by doing an assessment of your area and business’ unique requirements and concerns.

We’ll cover everything from flash flooding emergencies to data recovery, so that if your organization ever faces a crisis, all you have to do is say the word and the plan will go into action immediately to minimize downtime and disruption. You and your staff will have a firm grasp on the chain of command, what to accomplish and when, as well as other suppliers and locations.

Don’t let poor planning cause your company journey to be much more difficult than it already is. With an Emergency Ready Plan in place, our SERVPRO technicians are prepared to get you back on track. It might be the difference between your firm recovering its footing after a disruption or closing for good.

When your business is ready to prioritize planning and safety to prevent extended downtime, contact SERVPRO to get the Emergency Ready Plan underway from the folks who know all there is to know about disaster and recovery.

Facts about Mold Growth in South Florida's Humidity

9/13/2021 (Permalink)

The key to preventing mold growth is reducing and controlling the amount of water and moisture in your home.

In a place with as much humidity as South Florida, it is inevitable for mold to exist. Because it is very possible to be exposed to mold in South Florida, it is very smart to be properly educated on the topic. Here are some of the most common questions and fast facts about mold:

What is mold?

Mold is a type of fungi that is naturally produced both inside and outside. As a fungus, mold helps decompose materials that are already dead such as soil, plants, food, along with other items found in nature. Through their “spores”, mold can easily spread through the air and multiply in other places. Mold thrives in humid environments, which is why it is commonly found indoors in places like basements and showers.

How does mold grow?

As mentioned above, humid environments provide a place for mold to flourish. In order to grow and multiply, mold only needs three things: nutrients, a surface to grow on, and moisture. Oftentimes, building materials such as wood and sheetrock provide the nutrients that are required for mold to grow. As long as there is enough moisture, there is a potential chance of mold.

What are some of the common causes of mold?

Anywhere that brings moisture, is a place that can cause mold. Some examples of this include:

  • Outside flooding (storms, overflowing lakes, streams, etc.)
  • Indoor flooding (sinks, tubs, toilets, sewage systems, etc.)
  • Poor ventilation in the kitchen or bathroom from steam
  • Plumbing leaks or broken/clogged piped
  • Buildup of condensation on metal pipes, concreate surfaces, tiles, or even brick
  • Wet and damp clothing
  • Leaking air-conditioning system

How can I tell if there is mold growth in my home?

Usually, any indoor mode growth can be seen or smelled. Some of the most common characteristics of mold include:

  • Visible growth that may have a cotton, velvet, rough, or leathery texture and colors such as white, gray, black, brown, yellow, or green
  • An odor that smells earthy or musty
  • Concentrated around signs of water damage (leaks, standing water, water stains, condensation, etc.)

Additionally, the Florida Department of Health does not encourage mold testing or sampling. Testing for mold can be a very expensive endeavor and is often not worth it if it's very clear that a problem already exists. According to their rule, you should investigate a mold problem not test it.

How can I prevent mold growth?

The key to preventing mold growth is reducing and controlling the amount of water and moisture in your home. To do this, you should ensure to clean up any spills as soon as possible, dry out any wet building materials or carpets, use a dehumidifier or air conditioning system to keep the humidity level below 60%, and avoid any carpeting in the bathrooms or basements.

Types of Biohazard Scenarios Requiring Cleanup

7/26/2021 (Permalink)

A biohazard cleaning consists of a team with regulated plan and procedures, dressed in personal protective equipment, and an intense training process

What is a Biohazard?

A biohazard, short for a biological hazard, is just any biological material that poses a risk or threat to human or animal health. Some examples of biohazards include mold, human bodily fluids, animal waste, industrial chemicals and much more. These dangerous biological materials may contain deathly viruses, bacteria, and parasites which can potentially lead to diseases such as tuberculosis, E coli, Lyme disease, and salmonella.

What is a Biohazard clean up?

Because these wastes can present serious harm to human health, it is important to be aware of which biohazard situations require professional cleaning. A biohazard cleaning consists of a team with regulated plan and procedures, dressed in personal protective equipment, and an intense training process to keep professional safe.

Here are some of the most common biohazard scenarios that require a cleanup:

Presence of blood/other bodily fluids:

In the unfortunate case of suicide, homicide, or a deathly incident, often a biohazards cleanup is required. However, for small accidents, like bleeding from accidentally cutting your finger while cooking, a biohazard cleanup is not required. If the pool of blood is larger than a typically dinner plate, a professional is needed to take care of the cleaning. In addition to the physical dangers of biohazard waste, there are also intense emotional and psychological consequences that may come with viewing an unattended death. In this case, it is important to let a professional take control of the situation.


When dealing with an intense hoarding situation, you likely have no idea what lies beneath the surface. An intense cleanup from hoarding should not be taken lightly, as human waste, dead animals, bug infestations, and mold are likely discovered in these situations and should be treated with immense professional biohazard care.

Animal infestation

Any type of animal carcass or feces are a spot where harmful pathogens and other viral organisms  can  thrive. Because this animal waste may contain dangerous biological material and can present a serious health hazard, it is important to remove it safely.

Industrial and workplace accidents (chemical spills)

While most labs and locations dealing with chemicals have protocols in place to deal with minor spills, for any major industrial or workplace chemical spill, biohazard professionals should be contacted to clean up.

Criminal activity/crime scene cleanup (meth labs, tear gas residue)

You should never attempt to clean up a site where chemical materials have been discovered, as chemicals used in illegal drugs, such as meth production, can contain serious health risks. Let professional handle the biohazard clean up!

At SERVPRO of Pompano Beach, we have years of experience in biohazard cleanups. Our biohazard team is trained to safely remove biohazards and dispose of them according to OSHA and health regulations. Contact us today for all of your biohazard cleanup and restoration needs.

Pompano Beach Water Damaged Homes

Call us if you have water damage or mold SERVPRO of Pompano Beach (954) 970-4942.

SERVPRO of Pompano Beach

One of the first things to understand about mold prevention in your home, is that often mold problems arise from water damage. Fortunately, understanding how water caused damage can lead to mold can help you take the proper mitigation steps.

Here are three things you may want to know.

1. Mold Grows in Moist Areas

The first thing to understand about mold growth is that spore colonies grow best in areas of high moisture. Water can often leave behind areas of dampness which can then turn into a prime habitat for mold spores. These may also include darker areas such as under flooring, or cracks between tile.

2. Water Damage can Leave Rot

Another thing to understand about mold prevention is that damage caused by water can often lead to rot. This in turn can provide food for mold spores to thrive off of. Mold is classified as a fungi which means it grows from other organic materials under the correct conditions. Rotting drywall, flooring, or other damp materials found in the home after flooding or water problems can provide a source of nourishment for the spores.

3. Unseen Damage Can Create a Mold Habitat

If you do have damage caused by water in the home that it's best to contact a water damage restoration service as quickly as possible. This is because if left untreated water can soak into unseen areas and begin creating the conditions where mold can potentially grow. A professional will often be able to find these unseen areas before major problems can occur.

Mold and Water Damage

It's important for mold prevention to understand how damage caused by water can become potential mold issues. Remember that mold tends to grow in moist areas, that water damage can leave rot which mold feeds on, and that any unseen damage can also lead to large spore habitats. If you have any questions a professional can help.

A delay of just a few hours can greatly increase the severity of the water damage.

SERVPRO of Pompano Beach is available 24 hours a day for water emergencies, large or small. When you are dealing with water damage, immediate action is crucial.

SERVPRO of Pompano Beach provides 24-hour emergency service and is dedicated to being faster to any-sized disaster. We can respond immediately to your emergency and have the expertise to handle your restoration or cleaning needs.

Water Damage In Pompano Homes and Businesses

Are All Water Disasters The Same?

Absolutely not. Water damage is completely unique to each home, and the magnitude of the damage. It is important to know whether the water is clean water or contaminated. Because of this, SERVPRO of Pompano Beach must assess the job thoroughly to determine the proper course of action needed to get you back on your feet.

How Do We Do It?

Water Extraction

Water extraction uses vacuum-type machinery to effectively remove all the surface water damage that is visible. Once the source has been stopped, our skilled team of technicians and crew chiefs systematically begin removing the water from furniture as well as carpets and other forms of flooring. This process stops the furthering of any water intrusion and prevents any more damage to your property.


Air has water in it. When we watch the weather on our local news stations, they give us the relative humidity. Humidity is the amount of water in your air. Florida is notorious for having higher levels of humidity than some of the less tropical states in the U.S. While most humidity is taken out of your home via your air conditioning system, when water loss happens the levels of moisture are too much for your HVAC system to take out on its own. Our dehumidifiers raise the temperature level in the home or business and literally suck the moisture out of the surrounding area leaving your home dry and ready to move forward with repairs.

Flooding and water damage is very invasive. Water quickly spreads throughout your home and gets absorbed into floors, walls, furniture, and more. SERVPRO of Pompano arrives quickly and starts the water extraction process almost immediately. This immediate response helps to minimize the damage and the cleaning and restoration costs.

SERVPRO of Pompano Beach is excited to begin the mitigation process in your place of business or your home. And please tell your friends. You never know you need us until you need us. SERVPRO has been faithfully serving the community for over 50 years and we would love to be your restoration service provider.

If You Think You Might Have Mold Call The SERVPRO Professionals Today

If you’ve ever ignored your leftovers for long enough, it is likely that you have opened up a container to some moldy food. Maybe you’ve found a bit of bread mold when you wanted to make a sandwich. In fact, there are a few reasons why you might find your food looking a bit fuzzy. 
1. Mold is Everywhere
It might be a bit unnerving to hear that there is likely plenty of mold in your Pompano Beach, FL home that you can’t see. In most cases, you don’t need to worry. Most mold is not harmful and will cause no problems for you or your home. It does mean, however, that you might find some fridge mold growing on occasion.
2. It Helps Feed the Mold
Because fungi cannot create energy from the sun like other plants, it needs to feed on other sources. Sometimes, that source is your food. Particularly in the case of bread mold, and much to your dismay, this food can be a great place for the unwanted fungus to get its nutrients. Because you often keep bread in a dark warm area like a breadbox or cupboard, it is also easy for the mold to grow quickly.
3. There is Moisture
Mold grows more easily in places where there is moisture, which makes your leftovers the perfect breeding ground. It can spread quickly in this kind of environment, so you might find fungus growth on a dish that looked perfectly fine just the night before.
While bread mold and other types of mold on your food does not necessarily indicate a problem in your home, it can be a good idea to have a mold remediation service examine your home for mold if you are concerned.
If you suspect or have discovered a potential mold infestation in your home or business, call SERVPRO of Pompano Beach.
In as little as 48 hours, a minor mold issue can quickly spread through a home or business. Once you contact us, we’re dedicated to starting the remediation process quickly. Every mold infestation is different, from the amount of mold to the types of materials affected.

Mold Damage Can Be A Serious Problem in Pompano Beach, Palm Aire, Lighthouse Point, and Coconut Creek

3/7/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Pompano Beach is here to help. Call us 24/7 at (954) 970-4942

A few years ago Hurricane Irma was a category five hurricane that was on track to be one of the costliest hurricanes in United States history. The destruction would have rivaled Hurricane Katrina in potential economic damage. Millions of Floridians were affected, with some having lost everything in the storm. In the aftermath of such disasters, SERVPRO of Pompano Beach is always ready to provide water removal services. While some systems would normally strain under such a heavy workload, our national resources allow us to acquire extra equipment and even personnel in the aftermath of such disasters.

Below are a few ways we can help after a Hurricane.

Water Removal

Many homes can remain flooded in Pompano Beach and require water removal. Even if standing water has gone away, water remains soaked into materials and foundations across most of the community, creating grave and immediate structural and mold problems for those left without care. Our wide array of water extraction and removal devices allow us to handle a broad spectrum of moisture problems and fully clear your home of water in a timely fashion.

Water Restoration

Even if your home has fully dried out, it will likely still bear the marks of flood damage. Stains, debris, and warped materials can plague many local homes, presenting simple but significant obstacles for homeowners looking to return to normalcy. SERVPRO specializes in water damage restoration, and we can help to eliminate any lasting damage, no matter how severe it may seem.

Mold Checks and Remediation

Hurricanes invariably lead to the explosive growth of one particularly troublesome household organism: mold. Mold can begin to grow with any amount of water added to the home but is especially likely after flooding. Our technicians and inspectors are always careful to monitor for and deal with mold colonies should they begin to grow.

SERVPRO of Pompano Beach is here to help. Call us 24/7 at (954) 970-4942 for emergency services or questions about our work.

While water heaters give us the convenience of having instant hot water to supply our showers, dishwashers, washers and sinks, they can also pose a potentially expensive water loss that creates a lot of damage.  This damage can happen not only to your own Pompano Beach home, but in the event that you live in an apartment or condo on the second floor or higher, you can also create damage to the home owner or tenant that lives below you.

Water heaters built 30 years ago were built to last, but not forever.  If you have a water heater that is over 30 years old, it would be in your best interest to hire a licensed plumber to remove and replace that water heater.

The Do's and Dont's of Mold Remediation

3/7/2020 (Permalink)

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Call the experts at SERVPRO of Pompano Beach (954) 970-4942

Mold lives and grows everywhere. It’s something we encounter every day without even being aware of it.

So, what makes mold a problem?

When there is moisture inside your home, usually caused by a leak, mold can grow quite quickly even if you don’t see visible signs of it. It’s so important to hire an experienced mold remediation specialist at the first thought of mold presence to get rid of the problem right away before it spreads. Once mold begins to spread, it can affect every area of your home or business and may cause health effects to you, your family, your pets and your staff.

SERVPRO of Pompano Beach specializes in water mitigation and mold remediation. It’s the cornerstone of our company. We know how to thoroughly and effectively remediate your mold to acceptable levels (it's impossible to get rid of mold completely because it exists everywhere and can come in whenever you open the door or window).

Dos and Don’ts

DO – Get a mold assessment. SERVPRO of Pompano Beach is ready to help (954) 970-4942. Our team can quickly respond, inspect, assess, and get to work to make your mold infestation "Like it never even happened." Our crew has the training, experience, and equipment to make sure that your mold problem is handled properly. Even if you see visible signs of mold growth, a mold assessment tests for mold that you can’t see and can tell you what kind of mold is present and in what quantities. Not every mold spore is the same.  Some are more dangerous than others. There may be mold in the air, in your air vents, in clothing, etc. SERVPRO of Pompano Beach can determine how far that mold reaches inside of your property, so we can accurately reduce all the mold and prevent it from coming back.

DON’T – Spray bleach on it and walk away. We have heard so many stories over the years of people spraying all sorts of things from bleach to disinfectant spray, etc. to try to get rid of the mold themselves. Mold has roots like a tree. Killing surface mold does not kill the mold inside your wall. It lightens up and you can smell that bleachy smell and think that you’ve gotten it. But let a few weeks pass and you’re right back at square one.

Our SERVPRO of Pompano Beach team of experts have been trained in the proper procedures of how to effectively reduce all the mold and keep it from returning. Call us. That’s what we’re here for.

DO – Have someone house sit for you while you’re away. Even if you don’t have pets, hurricane season here in South Florida is notorious for wreaking havoc on your homes and businesses even if there isn’t obvious damage. It doesn’t hurt to have someone check in on your home from time to time. There’s nothing worse than to be a seasonal resident coming down for the holidays only to find black spots on everything in your home! Staying on top of things is the best way to keep mold away from your home and your belongings.

DON’T – Call a fly-by-night mold remediation company. SERVPRO has been in the mold remediation business for over 50 years. Our reputation for being one of the best in the business has given us a name you can count on in your time of trouble.

Call the trained, certified experts that are ready to take your call 24/7.

Cleaner Carpets In Pompano Beach

3/7/2020 (Permalink)

While it appears that the trend in the home improvement industry is towards hard wood flooring or tile, there are some die-hard carpet lovers that still enjoy taking off their shoes and feeling the soft cushiony feel of a plush carpet under their feet.

Carpet cleaning has evolved over the years and we want our Pompano Beach customers to know that we offer the most current, proficient means of cleaning your carpet to keep it in as close to new condition as possible.

Hot Water Extraction

What many of our customers refer to as steam cleaning is actually a more thorough process called hot water extraction. Steam cleaning generally is much milder and is a good option for expectant mothers and infants or even the elderly and those that have sensitive immune systems or allergies. This process is chemical-free and uses steam to clean carpets and fabrics to remove debris and other soils. The drawback to steam is that it can damage man-made carpet fibers and change certain characteristics in the carpet that are set by heat upon manufacturing.

Hot water extraction – on the other hand – begins with a pre-conditioning treatment that is then agitated using a brush or machine that scrubs the carpet fibers to begin to draw out soil from beneath the surface of the carpet. The next step is to spray heated water and detergent into the carpet to deep clean and then draw out that water with a high-powered water extractor. This step is by far the most important because leaving extensive water inside the carpet can cause more damage than good over time. Mold and browning (on wool) can occur if proper drying techniques are not performed.

The technicians at SERVPRO of Pompano Beach use certified drying equipment such as air movers (fans) and dehumidifiers to effectively and completely remove any remaining traces of moisture that could damage your carpet.

Carpet cleaning by SERVPRO of Pompano Beach, just a call away (954) 970-4942, will ensure that your carpet stays plush and beautiful so that you can enjoy it for years to come.

Restoring your home after water damage is not an easy process. How do you know what to discard and what to repair?

Never take chances if you are a resident of Pompano Beach, professionals can efficiently guide you through the restoration process.

For any water removal process in your property to be a success, the equipment that technicians use makes the difference. As a company, SERVPRO of Pompano Beach understands precisely that, and our team takes the shortest time possible to arrive at the site since an immediate response is crucial to an efficient restoration process. We work hard to mitigate water damages.
There are two ways through which water can damage your content. The first one takes place when materials absorb the water via direct contact. The second way is when they absorb the excess moisture from the air. Either way, our SERVPRO technicians must create appropriate conditions that promote drying. While we can use pumps to extract a substantial amount of water, there are situations where we use detection equipment to measure the moisture level in carpets, walls, and other areas. Moisture meters, moisture sensors, and thermo-hygrometers are some of the equipment that our IICRC certified water damage restoration crew members can use.
The application of dehumidifiers and air movers is part of the procedures that our SERVPRO technicians employ to enhance evaporation. While air movers promote evaporation of moisture from surfaces to the air, dehumidifiers remove the additional moisture from the air thereby lowering the humidity.
Direct contact with water might cause some contents to rot and lead to the release of odors. It is the job of our technicians to identify and remove the sources of the odors. Usually, the odors might have penetrated into tiny spaces and removing the source might not be enough for complete elimination. That is where we introduce deodorization – we use thermal foggers or ULV foggers to spray the deodorants. Our odor control technicians can make the right call.

Water Damage In Pompano Beach Isn't New, But Some of The Looming Problems Might Surprise You

2/5/2020 (Permalink)

When water damage happens in Pompano Beach call expert technicians, SERVPRO of Pompano Beach (954) 970-4942.

Water damage occurs quite often in South Florida. Water damage not only occurs often but also makes a lasting impact on the structure if not resolved right away. At SERVPRO of Pompano Beach, we implement tested and efficient techniques when it comes to restoring your structure's integrity.

Our technicians are trained and certified. he Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certifies and sets the standards for the cleaning and restoration industries.

When we get your call we will respond as quickly as possible to make sure the process isn't complicated and completed as quickly as possible. Initiating the Restorative Drying process saves you money, and prevents microbes from multiplying due to the water damage.

As part of the first step in the restorative drying process, we come out to your home or office and complete an inspection. Inspections are an important part of the Restorative Drying process because they help give you, the customer, reassurance of the need for Restorative Drying.

Among other water damage issues we want to address mold. SERVPRO of Pompano technicians will inspect, assess, and get to work to make your mold infestation "Like it never even happened."

Not addressing water damage as soon as it's noticed can cause a number of problems to occur, such as delamination, furniture stains, and mold or mildew. Our experiences with water damage include condo water leaks, post hurricane water damage, and even flooded hotel hallways due to sewage breakage.

As scary as water damage can be, prevention doesn't have to be and can be as easy as keeping an eye on your water bill. If your water bill is slowly rising in price or if there is a spike on your bill, there may be a water leak somewhere. Another tip to for water damage prevention is to use a "drain snake" versus a chemical based unclogging product.

Clogs are a part of everyday life that even regular cleaning cannot entirely prevent. Using a harsh caustic cleaner can damage your pipes overtime, turning one prevention into one big water damage. Owning a drain snake is a cheap and efficient way to unclog a pipe without causing any damage in the long run. Not only are drain snakes cost effective, they can also be found locally at hardware stores.

If water damage occurs it's a good idea to call a professional company, with expert technicians, SERVPRO of Pompano Beach (954) 970-4942.

What To Do If You Suspect Mold In Your Pompano Beach Home

2/4/2020 (Permalink)

There are a lot of ways that water can damage your home. If you live in Pompano Beach, you should be aware of water damage and mold. Sometimes it's as obvious as a visible pipe leaking water on to your kitchen floor. More often than not however, the source of water damage is hidden and so are the effects.

Here are some helpful tips to spot water damage:
Stains on the wall or ceiling

Discoloration in drywall is a sign that there is previous or ongoing water damage. The stains may be yellow, brown, or faint outlines.

A musky smell

A musky smell may indicate the presence of mold due to water damage. Mold-especially in the humidity of South Florida- does not take long to grow in the right conditions

Warping in the floor or baseboard

When certain materials like wood soak up water, they buckle and warp. If there is visible warping or buckling of floors, there may be water underneath.

Excessive utility bills

If there are no other visible signs of water damage but you are still suspicious, check your water bill! Excessive charges on your water bill may indicate a damaged pipe that could be releasing water into your home.

If you have water damage mold issues are right around the corner. In as little as 48 hours, a minor mold issue can quickly spread through a home or business. Once you contact us, we’re dedicated to starting the remediation process quickly.

Electronic Claims Systems and How They Help You

The electronic claims system can help with your insurance claim in a number of ways

Here's What You Should Know About Electronic Claims Systems

If your Lighthouse Point, FL, business has suffered a disaster such as a fire or flooding, you may have called SERVPRO to help with the cleanup and restoration. But these professionals can do more than just make repairs. They have several systems that can help with the insurance claim as well. Here’s what you should know about their electronic system and how it can benefit you and your insurance provider.

1. Can Track Damaged Items

One of the main things this system can be used for is to keep track of any damaged items. This can include an itemized list as well as a structural damage list. It’s also possible to store photographs of the damage in the system. Doing so can help keep all the information needed for the insurance claim in one place, and prevent this data from getting lost.

2. Can Be Accessed Remotely

Another way this system can help with your claim is the fact that it can be accessed remotely. SERVPRO professionals can show you and your agent how to log into the system so that you can see the information it contains whenever you need to. Whether you need to check on which items were damaged or are checking in to see how much progress has been completed, the ability to access the data remotely can save you time as you no longer need to visit the job site.

3. Can include Progress Reports

One of the aspects your insurance provider may enjoy about this system is the fact that it can include up to date information on the progress of your restoration. This can cut down on the time it takes to check in on the repair status, as reports of what has already been completed should already be available.
The electronic claims system can help with your insurance claim in a number of ways. It can keep a list of damage and accompanying photographs, the system can be accessed remotely, and as progress is made on the restoration it can be updated so your insurance agent knows where things stand.

Qualities of a Good Fire Restoration Company

Look for a company that has the expertise and professionalism needed to get the job done quickly

Fire can cause a lot of damage to your commercial building in a short amount of time. When flames ravage your property in Kendall, FL, you need fire damage restoration specialists who can respond quickly, expertly and completely.

Fast Response

From the moment the emergency personnel are finished putting out the fire, the clock starts ticking on the damage to your building. The longer the damage is allowed to remain in your building, the more problems you may add to the overall issue:

  • Extra water damage to walls, floors and ceilings
  • Extended damage caused by excess soot and humidity
  • Mold growth

When technicians arrive within hours of the incident, they can more easily interrupt most of the ongoing damage.

Knowledge and Experience

It's important to hire people who know what they're doing. Look for specialists who are certified to mitigate commercial fire damage. Certification tells you that they have had the proper training and hands-on experience necessary to ensure complete remediation. You should take the time to ask each company you are considering about the extent of their experience. Incomplete fire damage restoration due to lack of expertise can result in a larger problem in the future.

Full Service Package

Many smoke cleanup companies will focus on either cleanup or rebuilding. When you hire a team that specializes in both, however, you may get a more seamless process. When cleaning and restoration are handled by the same team, you don't have to worry about whether the restoration technicians have all the information they need to do the job right. All the notes are included in the same file by the same company, and the whole team can access them. This can speed up the entire process, getting your business back on track in relatively little time.
When you need fire damage restoration, the company you hire to perform the service can make a big difference. Look for a company that has the expertise and professionalism needed to get the job done quickly.

How SERVPRO of Pompano Beach Helps To Control Mold After Water Damage

7/22/2019 (Permalink)

Concrobium Mold Control

Restoring Damaged Materials For Pompano Beach Residents

Sporicidin® Mold Resistant Coatings - 80 is an easy-to-use, water-based, permanent coating developed for remediation and flood damage restoration.

Sporicidin® MRC – 80 quickly penetrates and adheres to porous and non-porous surfaces and leaves a durable, long-lasting barrier that will not blister, peel, crack, or chip and restores the integrity of water damaged materials.

Equipment Spotlight: Dehumidifier

4/9/2019 (Permalink)

Dehumidifiers have an important role in the water damage restoration process. They are used to make the drying process a lot quicker. Once air movers have evaporated hidden moisture into the air, dehumidifiers then eliminate that moisture. Many of the dehumidifiers that SERVPRO uses come with sensors that monitor performance for automatic variable fan speed adjustments. 

Dehumidifiers work like sponges by pulling in moist, humid air and discharging dry, warm air. Most dehumidifiers work similarly to how air conditioners regulate humidity. They pre-cool air that's coming in before it passes over cold evaporator coil. Then, the cold coil condenses water vapor into water that collects into a pump that is removed by an automatic pump-out system. 

After a short time of these machines working together, your home or business will be free of moisture and the threat of dangerous mold. At SERVPRO, we are also sure to keep each job free of contamination by changing the filter after each job if mold or other sign of contamination was possible. 

The SERVPRO drying process is just another way that we help make it "Like it never even happened."
