Leave it to the Professionals at SERVPRO of South Orange County

Most people don't actively plan on water damage in their homes or businesses, so deciding the proper way to restore a flood damaged property is important.

With so many aspects of life becoming increasingly more expensive by the day, it is no wonder that so many Americans choose to go the Do-It-Yourself route on an ever expanding wide array of tasks. While changing one's own oil or even doing one's own drywall job is commendable, there are still some jobs that are best left to the professionals. Water damage restoration and mitigation is one of them.

Each year, billions of dollars in property damage occur all over the United States due to flood damage. While some of these properties will inevitably be written off, the vast majority are completely salvageable. This means that, even though massive property damage was ultimately incurred, there absolutely never should have been any to begin with. All too often, this is the simple result of the property owner not recognizing the severity of the situation and taking the proper steps to remedy it.

One of those important steps is to properly mitigate damage right away.

Call SERVPRO of South Orange County for professional mitigation services anytime around the clock at 407-226-2621.

There has been a rapid advancement in the technology and techniques used in the restoration industry. These advancements allow SERVPRO of South Orange County to restore your property back to preloss condition quickly, reliably, and more effectively.

Moisture Detection and Measurement Equipment

Scientific drying principles rely upon specialized equipment to detect, measure, and monitor a property’s moisture levels. Recent advances, like infrared cameras, can help us detect water through a wall, ceiling, or floor.

  • An infrared camera may be used to identify water location for thorough water removal.
  • Sensitive moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation

Water Extraction Equipment

Powerful extraction equipment speeds the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water. 
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal.

Drying Equipment

Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers are needed to remove the remaining moisture from ceiling, walls, and floors of your home or business. Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed air movers causes moisture to evaporate at a faster pace
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air.

Odor Removal and Deodorization

Water and fire damage often cause powerful odors. The machines we use remove airborne contaminants and control the air quality during the restoration and cleanup process.

  • Air scrubbers
  • Thermal foggers and deodorization agents

Hurricane Preparedness

Storm Damage Hurricane Preparedness Thank you to businessweek.com for these quick hurricane tips

June is the start of Hurricane Season. Below are some tips to follow whether you own a home, RV, boat, car or all of them! You can see a storm coming by the change in color of the sky (often greenish), large hail, low-flying clouds and a roar like a freight train.

  • It is best to have a plan in place regarding where you are going to go when a hurricane hits. While they may be intriguing to watch, the best place is NOT outside. Your basement or under a set of stairs are great places to wait out the storm. If this is not available, the bottom floor of any building will work.
  • Keep your car indoors if possible. Tape up the windows and door with tarps and keep away from any objects that could damage the car if they were to fall on top of it.
  • During an emergency, gas stations will often be closed, so always make sure you have at least half a tank of gas to get away instantly
  • Have enough supplies on hand to wait out 72 hours, just in case help cannot arrive right away. These supplies can also be stored in the trunk (items like a first aid kit, bottled water, non-perishable foods, and medication can always stay there.)
  • Make sure your car is in proper shape. Have a full tank of gas, wiper blades and tires are ready to go.
  • Make sure your cell phone is charged and keep your charger with you.
  • Avoid driving in deep waters
  • For your boat, remove non-secure items, electronics, excess gear, valuable, and important documents.
  • Make sure all openings are clear of debris
  • Double all lines that are securing your boat to its securing space
  • With your RV, do not drive it during the storm as it is more vulnerable to higher/stronger winds
  • Make sure you have a full tank of gas, but empty holding tanks, turn off propane cylinders and cover the regulator.
  • Make sure all documents are always in a waterproof bag and with you.

Life can be unpredictable but having plans in place help you with whatever may come. For more information, please check out these hurricane tips. As always, once the storm passes, contact SERVPRO of South Orange County to help make it “Like it never even happened.”
