Water Damage Cleanup Gets West Palm Beach Bakery Back in Business

Water damage can be devastating to a business and particularly so in the foodservice industry. Along with disruptions to the company, health department standards must be met for cleanup and along with ensuring the environment is safe for both customers and employees.

In the case of cleaning up water damage in a West Palm Beach bakery due to a broken pipe in the kitchen, SERVPRO technicians arrive on-site within hours of the initial call. They begin to address multiple issues at once to hasten the process of getting the business restored for reopening as quickly as possible.

Our technicians inspect the area around the pipe break to ensure there were no long-term moisture or vapor barriers present in the wall. Often slow leaks that go unnoticed become waterfalls that get the attention of everyone. Because of the increased humidity and lack of ventilation, this area can be a perfect home for mold colonies to grow. During the drying phase, baseboards are removed to allow for the positioning of air movers and dehumidifiers to lower the moisture to the point that the potential for mold growth is inhibited.

Saturated drywall often is a casualty of water damage situations. Our technicians use moisture detectors and thermal imaging to determine where the moisture ends and begins and cut the drywall retaining moisture away. This enables the wall cavities to be voided of excess moisture.

Once the premises attains drying goals set by our technicians, the sanitation of the bakery can begin. In a business where there are established standards for cleanliness, SERVPRO technicians have proprietary antifungal and antibacterial formulas that leave surfaces disinfected and sanitary.

SERVPRO does not remove even damaged materials without the approval of the property owner. As part of the restoration, our SERVPRO location offers a full range of building services so we can clean, restore and repair water damage to reopen as soon as possible.

SERVPRO of Lake Worth knows that every minute water damage keeps a business from being open is revenue lost. Call our emergency response team 24/7 at (561) 588-9777 at the first sign of water damage, and we can be on-site within hours to begin cleaning and restoration.

How to Remove Smoke Odors After Fire Damage in Lake Worth Homes

Removing Odors with Fire Damage in Lake Worth

Fire damage can be devastating for a home; there are charred items and building materials and damage from water or the extinguishing agent used to put out the fire. Because soot can travel, cleanup must happen as quickly as possible, and traffic stays out of the fire damaged area until mitigation efforts are completed to avoid spreading it to other rooms.

When SERVPRO cleans up and restores fire damage in a Lake Worth home, our first concern is safety. We contain the rooms using thick plastic barriers and cover the vents to keep soot from traveling into the ductwork.

Our technicians pack and remove restorable items to another area outside of the cleanup site. Then we remove charred items and building materials and extract water or remove fire extinguisher residue as needed using hand-held vacuums with HEPA filters. The HEPA filtration is necessary because it captures the tiny soot particles that can cause odor.

Our technicians work closely with insurance adjusters to ensure that there is approval for every step of the restoration process, and we remain within budget. SERVPRO technicians photograph and catalog every item we handle, whether it is a restoration or damage.

After the cleanup of fire damaged areas of the home, we clean and disinfect surfaces. This action typically lowers foul smoke odors significantly, but sometimes the smoke odors left behind require additional odor control treatments.

We have different types of equipment to meet smoke odors head-on and eradicate them. Hydroxyl generators and ozone machines work in similar fashions to capture odor-causing particles and render them inert at the molecular level. Another type of odor control uses thermal fogging, which delivers a liquid solvent heated and delivered as a fog that penetrates porous items like smoke and overtakes the residual smoke odors.

SERVPRO of Lake Worth can turn around the effects of fire damage. Contact our certified technicians 24/7 at (561) 588-9777, and we can arrive onsite within hours to make your fire damage "Like it never even happened."

Appliance Failure Can Cause Water Damage in Lake Worth Homes

SERVPRO Provides Professional Water Cleanup in Lake Worth

Understanding how moisture is absorbed and how it moves allows our professional technicians to provide the correct water mitigation processes.

Movement of Moisture & What It Means

When water cleanup is needed in Lake Worth, it is often the result of appliance failure. Your dishwasher may have overflowed, the hose on the ice maker developed a hole, or the washing machine seals broke, causing in-home flooding. All of these scenarios lead to massive amounts of water that can quickly travel to areas you cannot see. Here are the ways water moves:

  •   Liquid Flow –This is how we most see water move. Water pouring from a pipe, rain through a roof, or groundwater soaking through your foundation are examples.
  •   Air Movement– Air carries moisture with it. Air moves moisture when it flows through cracks or openings in a building. When it moves from the outside to the inside, it is infiltrated. Reverse it, and it is called exfiltration.
  •   Capillary Suction – Liquid follows the narrow pathways when it comes in contact with porous surfaces. Fabric soaking up water is an example of this.
  •   Vapor Diffusion– This is when water vapor moves through the material as a gas. The water vapor moves from high vapor pressure areas to low vapor pressures. Water vapor is measured in RH relative humidity.

You can be sure of how SERVPRO understands everything about water and how it is absorbed, and the best way to dry it. If you need professional water cleanup, contact SERVPRO of Lake Worth at (561) 588-9777.

While mold removal in Lake Worth office buildings can point to multiple approaches by our skilled remediation professionals, there is often a degree of controlled demolition and repair necessary after black mold damage.

a family dealing with their house that is filled with water from flooding Flooding can happen at any time and from any direction. Contact team SERVPRO for effective water removal and flood damage remediation.

Floods can be Overwhelming for Property Owners, and Certain Recovery Actions are Vital for Lake Worth Homes

Flood damage is not an uncommon situation for many area homes to face. Adverse weather conditions can cripple the exterior materials of aging properties and allow for water penetration through the main floor of the house or the attic. As rapidly as these situations can develop, you need a team that can respond just as quickly. Our SERVPRO professionals have water removal services and flood cleanup approaches available whenever you need them to help with:

  • Flood restoration
  • Emergency services water damage
  • Flooded bathrooms and kitchens
  • Water damage remediation

What Areas of Lake Worth Homes Are Most Affected by Flood Damage?

Roof vulnerabilities can quickly allow flood damage in Lake Worth homes, though there are multiple possible penetration points depending on the circumstances. Natural flooding with rising waters outside of the structure can leave the entire main floor of the house contending with standing water. Carpets, drywall, baseboards, and other high porosity materials are often directly and irreparably affected by this high volume of standing water over even a short period.

How Critical Are Water Removal Services After Flooding?

Extraction and water removal services address the most immediate threat of floodwater penetration – the standing water concerns throughout the house. We can remove surface water concerns to a manageable level to allow muck-out and drying phases of flood damage cleanup to begin through a combination of removal tools like submersible pumps and wet vacuums.

How Can Your Belongings Get Protected from Flood Water Exposure?

Protecting your personal belongings after flood damage can be a considerable venture for our restoration professionals. In many cases, homes can get repaired and rebuilt to their original condition, but certain treasures, keepsakes, and items cannot be replicated or restored. Our responding team needs to relocate at-risk items to a safe place on-site or to our SERVPRO facility for focused cleaning and secure storage until flood restoration completes.

Is Controlled Demolition Necessary for Lake Worth Homes After Flood Damage?

Controlled demolition is often necessary for natural flood damage to area homes and businesses, specifically due to the introduction of contaminants and decaying matter into the structure. Natural flooding is often assumed as blackwater incidents like sewage because the threats of severe pollutants and health hazards cannot be ruled out. This assumption also prevents much of the exposed materials from remaining installed, as there are no appropriate means of disinfecting and preserving high porosity materials like carpeting and drywall. With a general contractor license, our professionals can help with:

  • Roof repairs
  • Plumbing repairs
  • Attic reconstruction
  • Controlled demolition
  • Content relocation

Flood damage can rapidly spread throughout area homes and provide a hazardous situation for those exposed. As urgent as this situation is, our SERVPRO of Lake Worth team stays ready to respond to emergencies 24/7. This preparedness can protect more of your home and save you money. Give us a call today at (561) 588-9777.
