Merritt Island Homeowners can Prepare for the Risk of Flood Damage by Identifying a Water Restoration Team.

Weather events surprise us year after year, and Merritt Island is not exempt from adverse weather events. Whenever storms and rain cause water levels to rise, the risk of flooding increases and the most important step one can take is to be ready with all the necessary resources for when disaster strikes. Knowing who the premier water restoration team is in the area can save precious time and money when it matters most.

In Merritt Island, flood damage can be left in the capable hands of our SERVPRO staff. The moment we reach your home, we begin by assessing the extent of the damage and developing a targeted plan focusing on salvaging as much as possible and mitigating your flood damage. For the benefit of our clients, we document the water restoration steps we take, which is useful in the insurance claim process. Similarly, we offer move-out services to remove unaffected items from the home and store them safely until the water damage repairs are complete and the house is ready for them.

Water cleanup involves much more than drying your floors and airing out your home. A complete water remediation process includes applying anti-microbial solutions, deodorizing your home, and using ozone generators and air scrubbers to purify the air in your home. Our SERVPRO staff is knowledgeable on the proper use of the equipment and EPA-approved cleaning solutions and applies this expertise in every step we take.

We hope you never encounter flood damage in your home but, if you do, SERVPRO of Central Brevard is ready to help. Call us at (321) 638-4947 and let us work hard until your home looks and feels “Like it never even happened.”

Before and after fire illustration Fire can leave your property with many issues. Trust our experts to bring your home back to its original state "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO Remediates All Types of Fire and Soot Damage in Local Homes

Significant structural fires involving your Cocoa home can leave a lot of lingering damage. You might not even be aware of the full extent of the damage until you have competent inspections accomplished to determine everything that has gotten affected. The traumatic event is almost impossible to move forward from without restoring the immediate pressing damages, not to mention the lack of comfortable living from the lingering effects that fire presents to your house.  

Fortunately, your home can get restored from its recent fire damage in Cocoa. With the efforts of our experienced SERVPRO restoration technicians, we can bring a highly damaged home back to preloss conditions. Through communication and prioritization of the most pressing concerns, our experienced professionals can isolate the most substantial symptoms to help you feel comfortable in your home once again throughout the entire restoration process.  

Assessment of Fire Damage

When we arrive at your house to do initial inspections to determine the full range of the damage, we also put a strong priority on sealing up structurally compromising holes and broken windows/doors. The reason for doing this is to prevent elemental damage to make matters worse for both our restorers and for your family.  

While your family might be able to live in a home that has some smoke and soot damage for a short time while the restoration process is underway, many families cannot often stomach the smell that circumstances like these tend to leave in the affected areas. Using our state-of-the-art equipment like foggers with odorless chemical compounds, we can neutralize noxious odors that linger behind after a fire and make your home life vastly more comfortable simultaneously. 

With significant blazes that affect your home, restoration efforts might not always be a possibility. In these circumstances, our SERVPRO technicians can work to prepare the area for reconstruction. Often, this involves controlled demolition to specific areas to ensure that the scope of the construction does not exceed what is necessary. Our efforts in this regard ensure that a contractor can begin work on this right away.  

You might be looking at the fire damage to your home and are unsure where to begin. When you contact our experienced restoration specialists at SERVPRO of Central Brevard, we can help you to better understand the full scope of what you are facing. You can reach our emergency response team anytime by calling (321) 638-4947.

SERVPRO Technicians Understand the Importance of Drying Out Your Property to Help Prevent Secondary Mold Damages

You might not always think about all of the dangers and disasters that could ultimately affect your Cocoa residence. While natural disasters are a persistent threat to those in this area, there are equally as many issues that could result inside your home that can cause significant damage to the structural integrity of your house if they do not get handled quickly and efficiently. For water damage emergencies that threaten your home, professional restoration services are a wise choice to make. 

Burst Pipes Cause Water Damage

There are numerous causes for water damage in your Cocoa home. Among the most typical of these would be a persistent leak in the indoor plumbing. While this might not seem like that credible of a threat at first, over time, this steady leak can cause a broad area of your home to get damaged. While this occurrence can be traumatic and costly, it is only the tip of the iceberg for what could happen when water and damp areas get left to resolve themselves. 

Our SERVPRO professionals work to ensure that any issue you face in your home gets dealt with promptly. We understand that your time and money are valuable assets. So we put our expertise and professionalism to work to give you a complete final product that restores your home to the way that it was before you suffered the damage. 

While repairing the damage to the plumbing that causes the steady leak is a critical component of the restoration process, it is only the beginning of the work that needs to be done. Our thermal imagery can detail the total reach of the water damage and present moisture so that the right tools and equipment get used to dry out the area successfully. 

An assessment also determines if there are any indications of mold growth throughout the affected area. Even letting water damage continue for a short time provides the right conditions for mold spores to colonize, so this is a legitimate threat to your home that our SERVPRO professionals must ensure is not present. 

You can always trust in the experience and professionalism of SERVPRO of Central Brevard. Our certified restoration specialists can get reached anytime by calling (321) 638-4947.

Flood Damage Experts Nearby to Cape Canaveral

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.

Testimonial on a black background We love hearing from our customers!

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."
