In Case of Emergency, Call SERVPRO of South Palm Beach

1/1/2018 (Permalink)

When disaster strikes in your home, you want to be sure you have the right people to restore your property and contents.  It holds true that not all restoration companies are alike. Unlike other restoration technicians, restoration professionals such as SERVPRO of South Palm Beach, have specialized training, skills, equipment and professional quality meters to remediate the job efficiently and effectively.

In today’s business environment many companies are looking to increase their revenues by adding new services, for which they may have little or NO training.  Be sure that the restoration company you are working with to restore your property has been properly trained. These companies often appeal to homeowners or businesses to perform disaster restoration services but end up costing clients in the end.

It is very common for amateurs to simply tear things out and then replace the materials or the items.  A true professional performs a thorough inspection and identifies those materials and items that can be salvaged and restored to their preloss condition.  This allows those professionals to complete the job much more quickly; thereby allowing you to get back to your normal routine. Restoration, instead of removal and replacement, helps contain costs.  In some instances it eliminates the need to file an insurance claim.

Restoration Professionals have the necessary business licenses and insurance coverage that are required for such a business.  As a matter of course, professionals are continually conducting training to be sure that they are following the most current, Industry Best Practices for their services.

For all property damaged by water, fire, smoke, mold and any other disaster, call your local SERVPRO of South Palm Beach office, The Paramedics of Property Damage.  We are standing by to provide professional service, 24-hours every day of the year, with a trained and certified staff, as well as the best tools and equipment to service all emergencies.

8/12/2016 (Permalink)

It can be overwhelming when faced with a fire or flood emergency as to know what you should do after the first responders have addressed the situation. Suddenly you’re faced with the task of getting your life back on track. The wisest move would be to call an emergency restoration company to start you on that journey. Call right away – don’t wait!

Below are some dos and don’ts while you’re waiting for the emergency restoration team to arrive.

DO…

  •  Stay away from contaminated areas.
  • Unplug all electrical devices and appliances. If necessary, switch off water, gas and electrical supplies.
  • Open the refrigerator door.
  • Open cupboard doors and drawers.
  • Discard all food (including cans) that may have been affected.
  • If you think it will not be possible for you to stay in your home, gather your valuables and some immediate belongings.

DON’T…

  • Enter your home until you have been given the go-ahead by the responding authorities.
  • Leave the area unattended until the emergency restoration technicians arrive to perform the board-up services.
  • Allow children, pets, the elderly, or anyone in poor health back into your home if soot and smoke are still present.

Note: If you have flood damage, the water is considered contaminated. Therefore any contaminated absorbent materials (upholstered furniture, rugs, carpets, etc.) should be removed and discarded.

Raw Sewage Cleanup: Not a Good DIY Project

7/20/2016 (Permalink)

Confronted by raw sewage cleanup, you’d probably rather not do it yourself in the first place. Still, some homeowners may attempt the job on their own to economize, or because they’re simply unaware of the hazards. Also known in the industry as “black water,” raw sewage is classified as Category 3 on the toxic water hazard scale (there’s no Category 4.) Environmental experts warn all persons exposed to raw sewage to assume that potentially dangerous pathogens are present. Cleanup is a job for trained professionals, properly equipped with safety equipment and disinfectants specifically designed for the job.

Raw sewage can contaminate your home in more than one way:

·         A clogged sewer line between your house and the municipal sewer main at the street or septic tank can reflux sewage back into your premises.

·         Sewage may reflux into residences if the local municipal sewer system or treatment facility is inundated with water, such as in general flooding.

·         Floodwater originating from an overflowing river or lake, or an ocean storm surge, may pick up raw sewage as it spreads through populated areas, swamping septic tanks and sewer pipes. By the time that floodwater reaches your house, it may be dangerously contaminated.

Here are some reasons why experts advise contacting a qualified water damage recovery expert if raw sewage cleanup is required:

·         Untreated sewage is commonly grossly contaminated by bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and other disease-causing microorganisms.

·         Hazardous sewage-borne pathogens may infect an inexperienced and inadequately protected person by simple contact with bare skin, inhalation, and accidental transfer from hands to mouth or eyes.

·         Shoes or clothes may transfer toxic sewage residue from the affected areas to silently contaminate “safe” parts of the house.

·         DIY clean-up methods with consumer-grade disinfectants may be inadequate to thoroughly decontaminate the premises. Contaminated residue from sewage that soaked into building materials and infiltrated the structure of the house may form an ongoing source of potential infection and disease.

For your own safety and the health of your family, leave raw sewage cleanup to the professionals at SERVPRO.
