The Cavalry from SERVPRO is On the Way!
During early April of 2019, Eastern Florida State College of Cocoa Beach suffered from a massive hailstorm. Many cars throughout the campus' parking lot experienced damage from the hail. Additionally, the building's roof ended up becoming damaged and allowed water to pool inside. After a call, our team began to assemble at our warehouse/HQ, and the Cavalry set out to help this education center through a difficult time.
A significant portion of the flood damage occurred in the campus library of the Eastern Florida State College. We brought drove a total of five SERVPRO vehicles to the center of the damage, as we always want to make sure we bring the technology we need when we need it. Getting all of our equipment to the library's location before we began the remediation helped us focus on the task at hand instead of worrying about what trucks or vans we needed. Our SERVPRO technicians are water damage experts and can offer the following services to anyone or any commercial business in need:
- Ceiling Repairs from Water Damage
- Water Removal Services
- Leaking Roof From Storms
- Water Cleanup
- Water Damage Repairs
Once at the Cocoa Beach campus, our technicians gathered together to investigate the water damages and draft a drying plan. When it comes to leaking rooms from storms, our technicians usually start by trying to minimize further leakage in the building. Using tarp and baseboards, we can cover damaged sections of roofing until a professional can take a look at it and determine the best way to repair it a permanent repair can be made.
With the exposed roofing damage temporarily solved, our technicians could focus on getting to work. They used infrared cameras to look for moisture pockets and then created a remediation-map from the areas that needed addressing. We mount our trucks with portable pumps to make removing water from the building and storing it easy. With extractors, wet/dry vacuums, squeegees, and other water cleanup technology, our technicians could move onto the next step of our flood damage remediation process.
Storm-based damages can bring more than just water to your property. Thankfully, in the case of the college library, sewage cleanup and biohazard remediation were not something to worry about. However, many storm damage-situations could call for the following services:
- Biohazard Remediation
- Disinfecting Companies
- Biohazard Cleaning Company
- Sewage Cleanup
It can be tricky to handle ceiling leaks, as more than one floor is often involved in the damage. The library of the Eastern Florida State College has multiple floors, and we were able to use light-weight poly tubing to direct warm air to the upper floors. Removing ceiling tiles and promoting open hot airflow can help with the drying process. The more warm and dry air circulates over the excess moisture, the more likely it is for the water to disperse and evaporate. This technological method is another reason that we go the extra mile to benefit our clients, integrity defines our work ethic.
