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".
