Commercial SERVPRO Can Beautify Your Salon in Cocoa Beach Following an Unwanted Spritzing Coco Beach Retail Shops and Salons Get a Make-Over from SERVPRO After a Water Loss

Commercial Water Damage Experts In Cocoa Beach Talk About Beauty Salon Problems

Moisture can move into the interior of your Cocoa Beach beauty salon from several different causes. Most salons have several sources of water running throughout them that create various possible beginnings for commercial water damage. The hoses running from sinks can sometimes leak causing water to spray all over the salon. The sinks used for hair washing can also leak possibly causing a flood inside your salon. Any time excessive moisture finds its way into your place of business, it is possible that mitigation is needed.
 
Moisture can ruin the structural components of your building as well as your expensive contents and fixtures. Mold growth can occur after 48 hours if the commercial water damage in your Cocoa Beach salon does not get mitigated promptly. As soon as water spillage is problematic in your salon, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO immediately. We start by securing the building and making sure that it is safe for you to continue serving your customers.
 
After the building is secure for all occupants, we devise a mitigation plan. During the initial project scope, our SERVPRO technicians figure out the best way to complete work procedures without negatively affecting your revenue stream. If it is difficult to work around your employees and customers, we can conduct work while the salon is closed. In most cases, we block off one affected section of your business at a time so that you can keep serving your customers.
 
The first clean up procedure we conduct is the extraction phase. During this stage, we use advanced removal equipment to pull moisture out of any carpet and upholstery. Next, we set up drying equipment to complete rapid structural drying.
 
To speed up the natural evaporation process, we set up both air movers and dehumidifiers. Air movers create air circulation so that wet air evaporating from surfaces gets pushed away so that more water can evaporate from damp materials. Dehumidifiers then pull moisture out of the air and dispense it in liquid form to a holding tank. The dehumidification systems then exhaust out hot, dry air to be used in the air circulation.
 
Any time you notice a flood in your beauty salon, call SERVPRO of Central Brevard at (321) 638-4947 24/7.

Be Proactive In Anticipation Of Flood Damage To Your Cocoa Beach Business: Draft A SERVPRO ERP

8/14/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Be Proactive In Anticipation Of Flood Damage To Your Cocoa Beach Business: Draft A SERVPRO ERP The humid, seaside climate and locale of Cocoa Beach hotels with restaurants exposes many of them to flood damage risk.

Be Proactive In Anticipation Of A Flood

Cocoa Beach is a very popular destination for visitors seeking beachside fun or following up an interest in the Kennedy Space Center. When your customers save and plan for a vacation in the area, last minute changes because of flooding is disappointing for your clientele and extremely bad for business. Connect with us on an innovative way to prepare for a disaster with the least disruption for visitors and the business community.

The humid, seaside climate and locale of Cocoa Beach hotels with restaurants exposes many of them to flood damage risk. Storms can dump torrential rain and blow fierce winds that combine for inches or even feet of water in your hospitality business. Trees shear off and break windows or damage roofs to allow more water intrusion, and the storm surge can send water streaming into your kitchens, dining areas, lobbies, and guest rooms. Although the hope is always for the storm to miss your area, there will come a time when your business needs immediate flood remediation. Our trained crews can help.

Our response is more efficient and effective when you or your managers take the time to develop an Emergency Ready Plan and Profile with SERVPRO. An experienced project manager meets with you on your site to evaluate your property’s layout and potential vulnerabilities if a crisis occurs. We built an information database about your business’s physical layout and how you operate so we can respond swiftly and surely. Expect some suggestions that minimize any damage you might experience based on our inspection and familiarity with how flooding losses evolve.

You use our mobile app to enhance the information shared during the SERVPRO visit. We encourage you to provide us with the names on contact information on vendors and equipment manufacturers so we can work with them to ensure proper operation of your systems after we remove the water and dry out your site. Locating utility shut-offs and listing employees or other who can act on your behalf if you are absent during a flood allows the needed flood restoration work to proceed without delay.

Businesses in our service are wise to partner with SERVPRO of Central Brevard to create concise but thorough Emergency Ready Plans to deal with water and other disasters. Call (321) 638-4947 now to schedule an appointment to get the plan in motion.

Understanding The Estimation For Mold Remediation In Your Merritt Island Hotel

7/19/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Understanding The Estimation For Mold Remediation In Your Merritt Island Hotel With the help of our SERVPRO equipment, we can clean and restore any mold damage that poses a threat to your hotel.

Your Your Merritt Island Hotel Will Be Taken Care of By SERVPRO if Mold is Discovered

When you discover mold growing in an area of your Merritt Island hotel, your first instinct should be to seek out professional remediation services. With the potential health effects that come with exposure to active colonies, guests in your hotel could be at risk for these effects without even realizing it. Therefore, it should be a priority to handle this situation as efficiently and as promptly as possible.

Not only do you have the mold damages to worry about in your Merritt Island hotel, but as a business owner, you have the incurred costs of remediation to concern yourself with as well. Understanding a little more about the way that our SERVPRO team determines the cost of a restoration and remediation project can help you better appreciate the estimate you receive for the work that needs to happen.

The first thing that you need to understand about the way that costs get determined for the work is that it all gets based on an initial inspection performed by a SERVPRO estimator. It is their job to determine all of the steps that are necessary to restore the damage and get everything back to the way it should be.

This inspection details the full scope of the damage that has occurred, and what must happen to remove the colony and fungal growth entirely. This assessment further details the necessary equipment and personnel required to accomplish the task.

Much of the estimated costs are relative to the general "costs of doing business." We have money spent in picking up and delivering specific equipment to job sites. We have administrative costs related to project planning, photographs and progress reports. These incurred costs are all included in that same initial ballpark estimation you receive.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Mold is something that poses a risk to your staff and the guests in your hotel. While no business owner wants to have to reduce their available rooms or services, the right professional remediation can assure that this does not have to happen for very long. Give our SERVPRO of Central Brevard technicians a call today at (321) 638-4947.

Mitigation vs Restoration in Your Merritt Island Hotel

7/14/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Mitigation vs Restoration in Your Merritt Island Hotel When your cozy hotel suffers from a fire damage emergency, contacting SERVPRO is your best bet for both mitigation and restoration.

SERVPRO Technicians are Standing by Ready to Respond to Your Commercial Damage Call

Perhaps one of the leading causes of irreparable damages to Merritt Island businesses after a fire is the failure to contact a restoration company quickly enough. As is the case with all kinds of disasters, a faster response can ensure that professionals are actively mitigating the situation rather than reacting to damage that has already occurred.

While admittedly the commercial fire damages that a Merritt Island hotel experienced during a fire are going to significantly slow once extinguishment occurs, it does not entirely stop, either. Even firefighting efforts intended to put out the flames inside of the building can leave damages of their own, and to prevent these situations from continually worsening, you need to act quickly.

You might not get surprised to learn that our SERVPRO offices receive calls regularly asking for quotes over a phone amid or just after an emergency or disaster has occurred. Many business owners become so determined to find the lowest quote or estimate that they fail to see the damages they allow by waiting for the information they want to hear.

Fire damages are no different in their ability to continually worsen, making even smaller scale fires unmanageable for those renting a room at your facility. That is where mitigation comes in. This service is one that our SERVPRO team provides by showing up quickly and working to prevent the situation from getting any worse.

Restoration, on the other hand, is a service that we provide that takes the damaged areas of your business and brings them back to preloss conditions through reconstruction, cleaning, and other practices. While any commercial or residential property ultimately requires both to some degree, the faster you can choose the right restoration team for your disaster, the less time and money have to go into both sides of this process.

Choosing the right restoration company to help you amid a crisis can be an impossible task sometimes. The best course of action is to plan ahead when possible. You can always rely on our SERVPRO of Central Brevard fire restoration specialists to be standing by and ready to help mitigate the damage and restore the effects. Give us a call 24/7 at (321) 638-4947.

Eliminating Commercial Water Damage In Cocoa Beach

Commercial Eliminating Commercial Water Damage In Cocoa Beach For Pierless Professional Water Removal from Your Business in Cocoa Beach--Call SERVPRO

Rely on SERVPRO to Protect Your Cocoa Beach Business with Fast Water Removal

As Cocoa Beach business owners know, a commercial disaster can mean double the loss; sometimes, even more, of a home disaster. Even something as simple as a broken in-take pipe can result in not just physical damage, but the loss of income to the business. If doors remain closed, then invoices do not get paid, and paychecks do not get issued.
 
SERVPRO understands that commercial water damage to Cocoa Beach businesses is usually from clean water. That means there is no sewage or other contaminants in any standing water or water trapped in carpets, furniture, or walls. The goals of our technicians are to remove the water, dry the structural and other property, and reopen the doors to customers as quickly as possible.
 
In an office setting like an insurance agency, the first task is to get the water out. Our technicians start in most offices with extraction wands. These devices can remove standing water from floors and draw it out from soaked carpets. They draw out the water to prevent two specific problems: delamination and lifting of the carpet from the floor.
 
Delamination is when the top and bottom layers of the carpet separate from each other. It occurs when the glue absorbs too much water, and the top layer begins to pull away. The same process happens when the glue holding the bottom layer of the carpet to the floor softens, and bubbles of air and water begin to form. That forces the carpet away from the floor, which enlarges the bubbles further.
 
To stop both, SERVPRO technicians utilize the heating element in the extraction wands to carefully dry the carpet layers as they remove the water. Team members start with the lowest setting to prevent softening the glue further and avoid damaging the carpet surface. "Floating," the process of lifting the carpet from the tack strip and injecting warm air can at times help salvage the carpet and padding.
 
To speed up the process, they also set-up dehumidifiers to draw water from the air and surrounding property like furniture and building material like drywall and floor trim. As they lower the humidity, other specialists install exhaust fans at key positions to draw out the damp, interior air and force it outside.
 
Every business is different, but SERVPRO of Central Brevard has the experience and training to restore each one to a safe, dry condition. If you need us, call (321) 638-4947 today. We are here to help.

Commercial Water Removal For Cocoa Beach Eateries

Commercial Commercial Water Removal For Cocoa Beach Eateries Air movers and dehumidifiers like these can help remove water from your business.

How SERVPRO can help you remove water from your business

Cocoa Beach, like many other cities and towns in Florida, relies on local and tourist patronage. Keeping the doors open for every viable hour is important to not only pay the business’ power bill but to provide paychecks for employees and keep the local economy moving.

None of this is possible when there is water in a Cocoa Beach restaurant’s foyer, dining area, bathrooms or kitchen. Commercial water removal needs accomplishing immediately to serve customers and hopefully prevent secondary damage. SERVPRO keeps a trained restoration team on-call to meet every need.

If our team receives pictures and video of the flooding, they can bring in the right equipment to get started in minutes after arriving on site. The first task is to remove any standing water. As one of our inspectors looks for the source of water and turns it off, others set up a commercial grade pump and begin the removal process. Technicians direct the water into the nearest sewer drain.

After removing the bulk of the water, team members bring in extraction wands. These smaller devices draw water off wood and concrete floors and pull it out of carpets. The wands have a built-in heating element, so SERVPRO technicians can carefully begin drying out carpets and wood floors at the same time.

Depending on the size of the restaurant, our team has two options. Members can use portable wands that have a battery pack or plug into the wall for smaller cafes, or, for large, buffet style restaurants, utilize wands that pump the water directly to a holding tank mounted on a truck outside the structure.

Once they finish with the wands, technicians install fans and air movers to draw out the damp air inside and replace it with warm air to speed up the drying process. As the fans and air movers work, team members use long-handled squeegees to push any remaining spots or pools of water out of corners, and out from under appliances and furniture.

Our goal at SERVPRO of Central Brevard is to support our fellow business owners and help them reopen to customers as soon as we can safely do so. If you need our services, call us today at (321) 638-4947 to schedule a visit.

Valued Resource

1/18/2018 (Permalink)

One of the most important things we do here at SERVPRO of Central Brevard is got to know the local property managers, real estate agents, condo board members and maintenance staff.  The reason we want to do this is because not only are we a vendor we are more importantly a valued resource for them.

Often times through out the year people have questions they need answered so they can make educated decisions that will affect condos they live in or properties they manage.  We have set ourselves apart by being there at board meetings, condo association meetings, being on panels and doing what ever we can to ensure our local partners are getting not only top quality service but the answers they need. SERVPRO of Central Brevard  --we are here to help!!

Not the kind of wet bar we want

8/15/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Central Brevard received a weekend call from  a local Brevard county Knights of Columbus for a large leak. And it was large almost 90 % of the building had water in it.  Thankfully there were large areas that did not have contents to move and there was lots of hard flooring and not much carpet-

The problem started from a water line leak behind the bar.  They had shut the water off from the building before our arrival and called in a plumber to repair the damaged water line.

Please see the photo below showing one of our IICRC trained techs extracting water from one of the main areas in this building.  It did take several hours but after about 3 days we had the entire building dried out!!!

Helping Condos with emergency planning

8/4/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Central Brevard has always been active in our community.  With Hurricane Matthew still fresh on everyone's mind we have stepped up to be a valued resource to our condominium association. 

At the beginning of the summer the Space Coast Condominium Association (SCCA) held storm and emergency preparedness  meetings, one of which we sponsored, during these meeting we showed how SERVPRO's Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) complements and enhances the plans they are making.  The individual condo presidents really love the portability of the information.  That way in the case of evacuation they don't have to worry about any paperwork its all right there on the phone. We are working with several condos right now getting prepared-

This is one of the things I enjoy- building lasting trust with our friends and neighbors by lending a hand and providing a service (which is free by the way)that will not only give piece of mind but allow us to take care of them if the time comes when they really need help!!

ERP's Lead the way to great relatioships

8/4/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO's Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) has been a useful tool in the creation of great relationships.

We have been using them in the local hotels and during the summer months they are almost always up to capacity,   With that many people you can almost guarantee that some sort of damage is going to occur.

With the use of the ERP not only have we gained the confidence of the hotel managers but we have great relationship with the maintenance staff which make taking care of their emergency so much easier.  We don't have to ask for instructions for ever little detail we already know them.  Anytime you can get something like a water damage done quickly and a business back up running all the better- especially  at a hotel who will tell you that the "most expensive room is an empty room"
