Stormwater Extraction is a Cornerstone of SERVPRO Water Cleanup and Restoration Services

Being close to the ocean makes Cape Canaveral susceptible to flooding. High-speed winds and excessive rain often cause damage to your home or condo. If water levels outside get deep, then the rainwater possibly leaks into your house from the bottom of door seals.

High-speed winds sometimes blow branches or other objects into windows or the exterior walls, causing a hole for water that allows moisture from the rain to enter your building. SERVPRO's flood damage technicians in Cape Canaveral have experience with mitigating water damages of all kinds. Rainwater sometimes presents challenges due to water contamination.

Often water coming from the outside has high contamination levels. Contaminated water can cause foul odors to exist inside a structure. In any water damage situation that does not involve clean water, our SERVPRO experts may test the water to figure out how contaminated it is. If the levels are high, soaked, porous materials inside the home may need replacing.

If the contamination levels are low, it is sometimes possible to mitigate the problem with extraction and drying. Many times we save your insurance company money (and you) by preventing costly replacement of building materials or contents. During the extraction process, we use specialized equipment to pull moisture out of your house.

After water gets extracted from any carpet, upholstery, or hardwood floor, we begin the drying step. Our goal is to create the ideal environment during a dry-out project to speed up the evaporation process. We start by taking moisture levels, temperature, and humidity readings using specialized instruments.

We then set up air movers and dehumidifiers that accelerate evaporation by circulating the area with warm, dry air. Sometimes other more specialized drying equipment or techniques get used for drying out specific building materials. For example, sometimes, we use injection drying equipment that pumps air into wall cavities drying out the wall's studs. This unique equipment, the Injectimatic, is on our trucks, ready for use when needed.

Sometimes water coming inside a structure from the outside causes damage to the building's HVAC system. Usually, the HVAC ventilation system is located in the attic or crawlspace and is difficult to access. If the vents are stainless steel, it is possible to dry and clean them. If the vents contain fiberglass insulation, the insulation gets pulled out and replaced.

If the ventilation system does not get cleaned, a mildew or mold smell may develop inside the house. For professional help with water damage in your home after a rainstorm, call SERVPRO of Central Brevard at (321) 638-4947 for help 24/7.

Cocoa Residents Can Stay Stress-Free After a Water Damage Incident

Trust the Professionals at SERVPRO to Handle Your Water Damage Restoration Needs

Even after a water damage incident in your home, you need to feel at ease as a homeowner. All that is possible if you treat everything as an emergency and call professionals to help you out. While there are some steps you can carry out to mitigate the damage, remember you do not have all the necessary skills and tools to do the job. Whenever technicians arrive at your Cocoa home, they pre-inspect the area before the actual restoration work starts.

Most water damage encounters in Cocoa lead to dangers like weakened subfloors, falling ceilings, and electrical threats. That is why a pre-inspection is necessary to identify such hazards early enough for a safe restoration process. If the water is still running, our SERVPRO technicians also identify its source and stop it. Though restoration may sometimes sound simple, there is more to this process. For instance, our SERVPRO team can do necessary demolitions for safe remediation.

Our SERVPRO team may perform vacuuming, use pumps or water extractors to remove the water from your property. The type of equipment we settle on depends on the level of damage. It is vital to drain out the water as soon as possible to avoid bacteria and mold growth. After that, drying and dehumidification start - the two processes aim at removing any remaining moisture from your property. We usually use desiccant and refrigerant dehumidifiers during this stage.

Our SERVPRO technicians also clean and sanitize your items to lower the chances of mildew growth. Some of the materials we target during antimicrobial treatments include drapery, clothing, and carpets. To dispense the sanitizing agents, we use thermal and ULV foggers. If we notice that the air still has some moisture and particles, we may use air scrubbers to remove them.

SERVPRO of Central Brevard is an industry leader in storm, fire, water, and mold damage remediation. Call us at (321) 638-4947 and receive professional services you can trust.

From the office staff to the owner, this company was just simply the best!

Central Brevard residents from Cocoa Beach, Merritt Island and your neighborhood count on the SERVPRO of Central Brevard team to respond quickly to water damage emergencies, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We are thrilled when customers appreciate our team’s efforts, including our owners. Recently our commitment to providing great customer service inspired the testimonial below from Cindy F.

"Unbelievable kindness, customer service, and professionalism. This company easily gets a 5/5!
It’s rare when you find a company that cares as much about their clients as they do their bottom line. My dad (almost 92) had a sink that overflowed causing water to flood the carpet. He tried to do what he could with a wet-dry vac, but the damage was bigger than what he could handle on his own. I just can’t say enough about the owner of this company. He came out the same day (when I’m sure he had better things to do) to put in fans, pull up the carpet, dry out the carpet pads and give my Dad (and me) peace of mind. He sent me pictures and kept me informed the whole time. He went back a few days later to put the carpet back down and to take the extra time to put everything back in its original place. This company is not only honest but ethical, professional and fair --they put the customer first. Hopefully we will never have to call again for help, but if we do; I know the first number I will dial. We were completely pleased and would highly recommend them. From the office staff to the owner, this company was just simply the best! Thank you, Cindy F."

How Can SERVPRO Assist Merritt Island Residents in Water Damage Restoration of Their Homes after a flood?

Located on the eastern Floridian coast, Merritt Island is one of the unique cities of Florida. First, it is not an ‘Island’ in the geographical sense, but a Peninsula! The city has a heavily residential area on one hand and a Wildlife Refuge on the other. The northern part of the island is still quite underdeveloped, with few places remaining as cattle pastures.

Merritt Island is perhaps best known as being the home to John F. Kennedy Space Center. Although space shuttles are no longer being launched from here, it still pulls in many visitors every year. The island also has one of the country's largest National Wildlife Refuge with an area of 140,000 acres. The Refuge has over 350 species of birds alone and some endangered species of animals such as Sea turtles and Indigo Snakes.

There is a lot on offer for visitors to do and see on Merritt Island. Some of the most visited sites in the area include:

  • John F. Kennedy Space Center: A visit to the Center is nothing short of awe-inspiring. There is a lot to see here. From the US Astronaut Hall of Fame to the Rocket Garden, every exhibit is mesmerizing. The Center also offers a bus tour to visit the launch facilities of some of the country's first space flights.
  • Black Point Wildlife Drive: A 7-mile self-guided drive is one of the best places to see the National Wildlife Refuge wildlife. The trail has 12 stop points on the way where you can spot some of the rarest birds in the world. Apart from birds, you can see alligators, otters, bobcats, and other animals too. The drive takes about 40 minutes.
  • Klondike Beach: It's one of the most pristine beaches in Florida. There are no roads, and it is accessible only by bike or on foot.

We can dry and clean Cocoa businesses quickly after discovering mold threats. 

Establishing physical barriers between the work zones where mold remediation occurs and other active areas of your business can keep work happening despite mold removal. Even limited capacities or actions can prevent total revenue loss as mold remediation gets underway.

Prompt removal and cleaning strategies can protect the wares and stock of the shop before irreparable damages occur. Depending on the severity of exposure to hosting material, varying surface treatment and remediating techniques are necessary. Some of the most common ways include:

  • Sanding
  • Soda blasting
  • Abrasive surface cleaning
  • Antimicrobial cleaning
  • Controlled demolition

Because mold damage can spread quickly through homes and businesses, property management should seek the experienced remediation team we provide as soon as possible. Our SERVPRO of Central Brevard technicians are available 24/7 at (321) 638-4947.

Why Cocoa is So Widely Visited Every Year

The city is a tourist community featuring more than 1400 registered businesses, so when fire restoration is required in Cocoa, it can impact hundreds of people. Between the beach, entertainment venues, and annual festivals, the city draws in thousands annually as a premier destination for shopping and proximity to area attractions in the Greater Orlando area and what is accessible from I-95 like Cape Canaveral.

The Historic Draws of Brevard County 

While the landscape has changed dramatically over the centuries, some structures remain a testament to the architectural prowess and skilled craftsmanship of building trade professionals. These historic properties are often as much of a draw to Cocoa as the beaches, resorts, and entertainment. Some of the most popular sites visited include:

  • Aladdin Theater – this structure is also known as the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse, and it has stood in this spot since it first opened its doors on Brevard Avenue in 1924. Initially, the theater showcased live acts and silent films but would come to be a premier location for musicals – drawing in more than 50,000 paying attendees annually through recent years.
  • Cocoa Village – The village's historic downtown district houses multiple protected buildings, restaurants, and shops along Florida Avenue and Stone Street.

  • Porcher House – This home exists on Delannoy Avenue and has been a standing example of 20th-century classical revival architecture since 1916. Now it is a venue rented for special occasions and houses City Hall.
