Water Clean Up & Restoration For Florida Hotels

9/15/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of North Seminole County at (407) 323-2422 is ready 24/7 to assist with commercial water cleanup of any size.

Safety During Commercial Water Cleanup in A Seminole County Hotel

When a business relies on heavy foot traffic as part of their business model, the need for safe commercial water cleanup is crucial. The goal of SERVPRO is to help businesses experience the least amount of loss and undergo mitigation as safely and quickly as possible.

In the case of a hotel in Seminole County requiring commercial water cleanup, SERVPRO technicians arrived on-site and determined that slip and fall accidents were a danger from the wet tile floor. They taped off the water loss area and put up signs to ensure while the rest of the hotel lobby remained open, a wandering guest in the hotel did not endanger themselves during the cleanup and drying process.

Removal of Water and Wet Items
The water came from a large scale plumbing leak in a single area of the lobby. The technicians used their moisture detection equipment to track the migration path of the water and extracted the standing puddles. A single wall received the effects of the plumbing issue, and only that area required the removal of the sheetrock for both airflow to dry inside the wall cavity and for repairs to the pipe. The rubber-backed industrial rugs did not absorb any water and only needed cleaning for reuse.

Disposal of Some Furnishings
While hardwood furnishings hold up well against most water exposure, the composite wood furnishings in the lobby that received water damage did not have restoration or repair potential due to the damage to the bases. The techs noted these items in detail, including photos for use by the hotel when filing an insurance claim.

Drying and Restoration
The professional drying equipment SERVPRO utilizes use such a high-velocity airstream that it forces embedded moisture to rise and is ported away by their dehumidification equipment. This begins a cycle of progressively drier air circulating and results in eliminating the moisture.

SERVPRO of North Seminole County at (407) 323-2422 is ready 24/7 to assist with commercial water cleanup of any size. Their technicians bring the equipment and knowledge to make the loss, “Like it never even happened.”

Hurricane Protection Tips For Florida Businesses

9/9/2020 (Permalink)

How To Protect Your Business From Hurricanes 

When hurricane season arrives, you see a lot of business owners in Central Florida board up their windows and get sandbags. After all they are trying to not only protect their buildings exterior from the storm but the merchandise inside as well. If business owners do not try any way to protect their businesses from a hurricane, then water and storm damage is possible to their commercial property. And when that happens, they could potentially be out of business for weeks if not months after the storm has passed. 

So we wanted to outline some basic commercial property protection tips for Florida business owners. 

Hurricane Protection Tips

  1. Trim trees or other plants 

At your business, you are going to make sure your trees and bushes are trimmed to help ensure that nothing comes flying through your windows during high winds. Debris is one of the most damaging forces in a hurricane, and it could damage your future business revenue as well!

  1. Storm shutters

If you live somewhere prone to hurricanes and powerful storms like we do here in Central Florida, it's always a good idea to install storm shutters on your windows at the office just like you would at home. If anything, you can try to board up your windows if your property manager allows it. 

  1. Storage space

If you are a company that deals with equipment (like we do) it's important to have a space inside your office where you would be able to store everything if need be. This helps to prevent any equipment from getting wet and possibly ruined. 

So that's it. All it takes is a few extra measures to make sure your business is as safe and secure during a storm as your home! 

If you ever do end up with a water damage in your home or place of business, don't worry...We're here for you.

Getting Back To Business

5/10/2020 (Permalink)

As we begin to go back to work many will be returning to buildings/facilities that have been closed for weeks or months. This creates the potential for unidentifiable odors from ambient humidity, lack of temperature control or undetected leaks. 

At SERVPRO of North Seminole County we are experts in identifying and eliminating odor(s). However, eliminating the odor is only part of the solution. If the cause of the odor isn't identified and remedied, you are simply putting "a band-aid on a broken leg". 

Should you have an odor issue upon your return to work let SERVPRO of North Seminole County investigate it for you. We will do so at no cost and provide you with a report of our findings and an estimate for remediating the source and eliminating the odor, if necessary.
