Here is how to handle water damage!

3/27/2023 (Permalink)

Is Water Damage Restoration Necessary?

A lot of people, especially those facing a lesser amount of standing water on floor coverings might wonder if the whole process is actually necessary. The thing is – flood waters pose a threat of structural damage to your property, especially if there’s any amount of excess water left in the affected areas. Not to mention how important it is to prevent mold growth in remaining mold spores.

Mold and mildew are significant health hazards and they can be breeding grounds for bacteria just like many other chemicals and toxins that can be found in standing water, especially if caused by sewage backup. So, yes, it’s necessary and extremely important to act quickly and spring into water damage restoration as soon as possible.

What Do You Do if Your House Has Water Damage?

The best thing you could do is go over your homeowners’ insurance and see if it covers water damage repair. Make sure to take photos of the flooded areas and the damaged property so you can attach them when you file your insurance claim. If are covered by insurance, the best next step would be to call SERVPRO of South Fleming Island / North Bradford County to handle it. It’s the easiest and safest way out of a flooded basement or any other kind of water damage.

What Does Water Damage Restoration Include?

Whether you’ve got smaller wet areas due to overflowing appliances like washing machines or significant damage due to leaking pipes, roof leak, or a huge water intrusion due to storm damage or other natural disasters – the process is similar. The water damage restoration process involves the following 5 steps:

  • Inspection (and determination of the cause and course of action)
  • Removal of the water from the wet areas
  • The drying process to remove humidity.
  • Cleaning and sanitizing
  • Water damage repair

The course of action will vary depending on the source of the water damage and the state the damaged materials are in, but these steps will remain the same. Here at SERVPRO we try our best to restore so damages are kept at a minimum and if replacement is necessary, we handle it with ease!

What Should You Not Do After Water Damage?

 It’s good to know what to do in these situations, but sometimes it’s even more important to know what not to do when experiencing water damage. So, here are some pieces of advice on what to avoid when dealing with water damage restoration.

Don’t access the flooded area if there are structural damages.

If you’re dealing with a flooded basement, don’t go down there for inspection before you’ve made sure the floors and walls haven’t had any damage. They need to be in good condition so you can enter the room without them collapsing and injuring you.

Don’t handle structural or electrical work if you haven’t got the experience.

Even if you’ve decided to go DIY with this, don’t carry out the structural or electrical repairs if you don’t know what you’re doing. These kinds of repairs shouldn’t be done by amateurs even in normal conditions, let alone now. So, if there is some work that needs to be done, call an SERVPRO!

Don’t let garbage pile up.

Garbage piling up is never a good thing, especially not under these circumstances. Pests and bacteria could develop, so get rid of everything fast. Make sure you follow the proper disposal techniques for each type of garbage you’ve got on you. Keep it organized and keep it going.

Don’t leave pools of water for long.

Try to get the water out of the room or rooms as fast as you can. And also, dispose of it properly, not to cause a bigger problem somewhere else. If there’s water lying around for prolonged periods of time, you’ll make another problem for yourself. One with mold or bacteria. And that’s an even bigger problem that takes much more time, effort, and money to handle.

Leave it to the pros at SERVPRO!

Is water damage the most common among damages here in the Historic city?

1/3/2023 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Water damage can put a home out of living condition and a place of work out of working condition. Sitting water damage can also increase damages

Be aware of dangers that put your property at risk!

  • Water Damage
  • Fire Damage
  • Mold Damage
  • Catastrophic storm Damage
  • Biohazardous Damage

Damages to your property are important because it's where you live or where you work in most cases! In most cases we see water damage being a main damage in the oldest city of St. Augustine!

Why is water damage the most common loss that we see?

Well, moisture is no stranger to the state of Florida. Being a pretty rainy and stormy city, the oldest city has many older buildings that tend to have leaks. Many areas in St. Augustine lay low and close to the water level so an extensive amount of rainfall can very easily cause flooding creating multiple water damages. Here we are consistently getting weather on the extreme level! From the hottest days to the coldest days water problems surround our homes and work facilities whether it be from frozen pipes cracking or bursting or water systems overheating and malfunctioning. Many water damages come out of nowhere and are unexpected. For instance, at any given moment, you could have an appliance malfunction flood an entire area inside your home. Being that St. Augustine is the Oldest city in the United States many buildings are old and are prone to more damage from storms creating once again water damage.

While this is the last thing we think of when we wake up it can very well happen to anyone at any time. Water damages can affect not only your property but your personal items as well. Here at SERVPRO we try our best to restore your personal items along with your property in a timely manner almost "like it never happened". Here at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine beach we live by that quote so you can live a life disaster free. Our team of highly trained professionals operate on a 24/7/365 schedule, so you never have to worry about us being open. 

How do you know if you have water damage?

Most the time it'll be pretty obvious that you have water damage! But sometimes it can be questionable whether or not it's something that you want to get checked out or not. Some signs you might want to look for are wet or damp areas, discolored areas, lifted or uneven tile and soft structure that once was not soft!

A fire in your Starke home can be devastating. When a fire first takes place, it's important to ensure the safety of your family by relocating to a safe place. After your family is safe, you can begin to think about how you are going to get your home back in order.

SERVPROs fire damage repair professionals will help assess your home. Here are some of our Do’s and Don’ts after fire damage. 


Take pictures of the damage

Having a visual record of the fire damage will come in handy when you file your insurance claim. Instead of trying to remember how everything looked after the fire, you will be able to refer back to the pictures that you took. This is important for the structural damage of your home, and for all of your contents. SERVPRO will return the content to the original position before the fire, smoke, and soot damage. 

Call your insurance agent

Insurance claims can take months or even years to fully process, which means you will want to get the process started as soon as possible. The faster you know what the course of action is, the faster you can contact fire damage professionals to restore your home. 

Wear gloves if you must enter the home

If you need to enter the home to gather your home's deed, insurance documents or other important paperwork, be sure to wear gloves. The soot on fabrics and ashes from the items can linger on your hands and lead to irritation if you touch your eyes, nose or mouth before having the chance to wash your hands. 


Enter Your home until it is safe 

Your home may appear to be structurally sound, but there is no guarantee that damage has not been done somewhere that you cannot see. Do not enter the home until it has been inspected and deemed safe by SERVPROs  fire damage professionals. 

Try to clean the walls and floors yourself

Trying to clean soot off your walls and off of your carpets is more complicated than everyday cleaning supplies can handle. We have professional grade equipment for the soot wipe down, fire deodorization, and the reconstruction of your home.

Turn on any electronics 

The hardware and wires of your computers, TVs, phones and other electronics may have suffered damage in the fire. The home's electrical system may be compromised as well. For your safety, consult with an electrician before turning on any electronics or light switches. 

If your home has sustained severe fire damage, you can count on the team at SERVPRO of South Fleming Island/ North Bradford County. In addition to fire restoration, we can also provide water and storm damage services, as well as mold mitigation. Call us at 904-290-4040 for help!
