What Are Commercial Cleaning Services?

Whether you own a restaurant, a boutique, an office space, or a supermarket, your commercial property must be regularly cleaned to maximize its function and appearance. Commercial cleaning services range from general cleaning to more specialized services such as mold removal, fire and water cleanup, and air duct cleaning. Below is a more detailed description of SERVPRO’s services.

  1. Water Damage Restoration:

Water damage could be the result of a flood, water from a sink that has leaked, a pipe that has burst, or a faulty air conditioner. 

  1. Mold Remediation

Buildings, offices, and homes can sustain microbial growth of mold if excess water and humidity are left untreated. Mold can spread and become a health hazard.

  1. Fire Damage Restoration

Fire damage carries with it the trauma of fire destruction, debris, air quality concerns, and potential health effects to those exposed. Water damage is often a secondary issue when there has been a fire. Fire damage services may include removal of debris, cleaning the fire-damaged areas of an office or home, purifying and making the air fresh and safe to breathe, and remediating any water damage.

  1. Building Restoration Service:

In the event of fire, water, or storm damage, the immediate concern is to protect the building, home, or office from further damage and to secure the structure for restoration to occur. Services include but are not limited to drywall, electrical, painting, roofing, tile, and carpet repair. 

How Commercial Cleaning Services Benefit Your Business:

To operate at peak productivity, businesses need to provide a clean environment for their team and clientele. Specialty cleaning services include air ducts and HVAC, biohazard and sewage, trauma and crime scene, carpet and upholstery, drapes and blinds, ceilings, walls and hardwood floors, odor removal, and deodorization, and vandalism clean-up.

Why Hire a Professional Commercial Cleaning Company:

The number one reason to hire a cleaning service is that they are professionals who are trained in the latest technology in the cleaning industry. SERVPRO of Maitland / Casselberry has highly trained staff with years of experience in commercial cleaning. The team is well-trusted throughout Orlando, FL. 

The SERVPRO team provides its own supplies. The right cleaning products are necessary to achieve the proper level and appearance of cleanliness.

Hurricane Season Is Coming, Be Alert for Weather Advisories in the Orlando Area.

6/7/2021 (Permalink)

One of the best steps you can take to prepare yourself for storms, is to purchase a good quality weather radio. A weather radio is designed to alert you to dangerous weather situations, such as an approaching tornado. It allows you to be warned ahead of approaching storms providing you time to seek shelter. A weather radio is one of the most reliable sources for weather alerts. Weather radios have improved in design and have made many other advancements over the years. They are now readily available and very affordable. Most basic weather radios average cost is around $30 and will warn you of all types of weather advisories and public announcements. Some models can be programmed to only alert you of specific weather alerts you designate.

When shopping for a weather radio, look for the following key features:

  • Reviewable alerts (The ability to scroll through alerts and turn off the siren for alerts you do not wish to hear can be very helpful).
  • Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) is the protocol used to encode the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and NOAA Weather Radio (NWR).
  • Make sure the model you choose is easy to program.  Like any electronic emergency ready tool, it is critical that the device is reliable and simple to use. 

If you need help programming your weather radio, you can contact your local National Weather Service Office or for additional information, including county codes for Florida, visit NOAA Weather Radio website at www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr.

10 Questions People Ask About Water Damages

5/27/2021 (Permalink)

  1. “Can’t I just put in some fans?” Fans help, yes, but are not the only part of the drying equation. Fans help to push the moisture from your walls, ceilings, and floors into the air, and our commercial dehumidifiers help to pull all that water out of the air. Through a formula known as Psychrometry we can determine how many air exchanges it will take to dry your home or business with the equipment we place. Thats some fancy math!
  2. “I’ll just rip up my flooring. Insurance will replace it.” Hold up, wait a minute! Often flooring can be dried in place and then cleaned after it is dry. It is more cost effective to do this than to replace flooring that is still in good condition. Ultimately saving claim funds is better for you and your insurance company.
  3. “Open the doors and windows to help it dry out.” We are begging you, PLEASE do not do this unless you are instructed to by a water damage professional. If you live in a climate that is humid (hello Central Florida, looking at you) it is going to be more detrimental than helpful. The goal is to dry your structure, the natural humidity is going to make that worse. In fact, it would be better to turn your AC down so that it stays on until we get there with commercial equipment to begin drying.
  4. “UGH, this equipment is so HOT and so LOUD! I’m turning it off because I can’t sleep, work, or think!” You aren’t wrong. It is loud. It is hot. And it does make work, sleep, and even thinking hard to do. We PROMISE that if you stick with it and allow the equipment to do its job your home or business will dry much faster than if you turn it off and it only gets to work in small increments. Also, turning equipment off and allowing moisture to stay trapped will potentially lead to microbial growth (yep MOLD). I can promise you that 5 days of drying equipment is better than 10 days of mold remediation…not to mention that improperly handling your water damage can open issues with coverage for your claim with your insurance company. Trust me, it’s worth it to leave the loud, hot equipment on.
  5. “I thought you said you were getting paid by the insurance company. Why are you sending me a bill?” Our company works with all insurance companies. That being said, as the policy holder YOU are the one that the insurance company will send payment to (about half of the time). You will then need to forward payment to us. We do submit billing to the insurance company for you and we do work with your adjuster to close out payment for our services. We will also do our best to help you through the claim process. Ultimately, as the homeowner, or business owner, it is up to you to make sure payment is received for services rendered. If your insurance company determines that your loss is not covered by your policy you will be responsible for payment. We will always do our best to work with our customers if this is necessary.
  6. “I heard it only takes 3 days to dry out a house.” While it is true that many homes can be dried in a few days every structure is different. There are MANY unforeseen circumstances that can affect drying time. There are certain “best practices” that we adhere to for drying that help ensure timely progress. We also perform moisture inspections daily during a dry-out. This allows us to reposition equipment if we need to, remove equipment from areas that have dried, and to make sure that we are watching progress of anything that may require additional help.
  7. “I’m paying for this myself, so please don’t charge me what you charge an insurance company.” Our industry uses a couple of different software platforms for estimating/breaking down a job. Those platforms set the pricing. Insurance companies also use these systems, but the pricing is not “for” the insurance company. They’re getting the same pricing as you!
  8. “Who trains you?” The IICRC-Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification-is who we are certified and trained by primarily. (Here is the link to the about section of their web site https://www.IICRC.org/general/custom.asp?page=AbouttheIICRC). Any time you need a restoration professional you want to verify that they are a certified firm. You can do this by checking the IICRC site or asking for a copy of the firm’s certificate. Aside from the professional training by the IICRC, we offer in house training as well as additional training from other industry organizations.
  9. “Who is paying the power bill after you leave all that equipment plugged in?” We suggest that you reach out to your assigned insurance adjuster and ask if this is something that your policy will cover. In some cases, they need to see your bill for the month before and the month after, to show that there was an increase in usage. However, thanks to technology advancements, unless you’re dealing with a large amount of equipment for a long time, I doubt you’ll notice too much of a difference.
  10. “All of you water damage companies are the same”…. I beg to differ. This is personal for us. We are all here because we want to help. We know that having your home or business turned upside down is stressful. Unfortunately for most people, LIFE is stressful these days. Add a water damage to the mix and it’s almost more than anyone can take. We are here to help you through that. Not only do we care, but our company has been in business over 35 years! There just aren’t that many companies in our industry that can say that. Know why? The industry isn’t THAT old. It’s only been since people started having things like air conditioning, drywall, hot water heaters, appliances, and double paned windows that there was a need. Our industry is constantly growing and changing, and we are proud to have been at the forefront of that growth for so long.

Top Spring Flooding Tips

5/5/2021 (Permalink)

Flooded Home Flood insurance is a must here in Florida, have you checked your policy lately?

Although flooding can happen at any time in Florida, Spring flooding is common as frequent storms leave the ground soaked and streams are often at their highest levels of the year.  Here are some tips for both families and businesses.

  • Make a family emergency communication plan and include pets.
  • Have emergency supplies in place at home, at work, and in the car.
  • Flood insurance takes 30 days to take effect, so purchase now to protect your family!
  • Listen to local officials by radio, TV or social media.
  • Evacuate when advised by authorities or if you are in a flood or flash flood prone area.
  • If you are on high ground above flooded areas, being prepared to stay where you are may be the best protection.
  • Don't let your business end up in a dumpster. Make a Flood Safety plan today.
  • Charge mobile devices. Locate flashlights & radio. Tell friends/family your location in case of power loss.
  • Heavy rain to areas that have been experiencing drought can cause flash flooding.

If you do need to venture out during or immediately after a flood, follow these rules:

  • Don’t drive or walk through flood waters
  • Water moving at just 5 miles per hour can lift and displace manhole covers leaving unseen dangers
  • As little as 12 inches of moving floodwater can be enough to float and carry away a small vehicle.
  • 6 inches of moving water can knock an adult off their feet. STAY AWAY from moving water!
  • Driving thru 6 inches of standing water can cause vehicles to lose control & stall. Avoid flooded roads.
  • Be aware of areas where waters have receded. Roads may have weakened & could collapse under the weight of a vehicle.

Personal Property

  • 30: The number of days it takes for flood insurance to begin. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
  • Only flood insurance will cover the damage from floods. Speak with your insurance agent to learn more.
  • A few inches of water in a 1,000-square foot home could cost more than $10,000 in repairs & replacement of personal possessions
  • Prepare for a flood today by reviewing your property & flood insurance policies.
  • Snap some pictures of your property & do an inventory. This will be handy if flood waters damage your property. Again, consider using the SERVPRO Ready Plan App.
  • Flood waters can damage important papers. Store critical docs in a waterproof container or electronically.
  • Before a flood: reduce potential property damage by elevating utilities & installing sewer backflow valves.
  • Prepare before a flood by installing a water alarm in your basement.

After a Flood

  • Watch your step! Flood waters often hide sharp and dangerous debris like broken glass and metal!
  • Wear the appropriate protective clothing and gear like boots, gloves and safety glasses when it comes to moving debris!  
  • Hands off! Stay away from electrical utility equipment after a storm or if it is wet to prevent being electrocuted!
  • Flooded homes are hazards! Get a professional to check for loose wires, mold and hidden damage before re-entering!
  • Avoid walking in floodwater. It can be contaminated with oil, gasoline, or sewage.
  • Use generators or other gas powered machinery only outdoors and away from windows.

Is Mold Damage in Maitland Properties Difficult to Address?

3/8/2021 (Permalink)

Photo of mold growth behind wall Do you know how to locate hidden mold in your home? SERVPRO does!

SERVPRO Helps Address Any Issues that Arises After Mold Damage in a Property

Mold infestations are easy to detect in most properties because they show signs such as dark patches on surfaces or the development of a musty smell. However, easy identification does always lead to easy resolution of the problem because the surface mold may recur soon after removal. Simultaneously, the growth in hidden areas may require extensive tear down to remove.

Addressing mold damage in Maitland / Winter Park properties is only convenient if the right resources are utilized. Since SERVPRO technicians have considerable experience handling such situations, it is easy to identify problematic areas. For instance, we check:

  • For the likelihood of penetration of mold hyphae beyond the surface of a material
  • The presence of moisture in hidden sections of the house
  • The level of deterioration in affected materials

Such evaluations from our SERVPRO technicians help guarantee a positive outcome in different ways. For instance, we can remove all the porous materials instead of cleaning their surfaces. If the evaluation reveals hidden moisture pockets, we can tear up the areas to reach the wet materials. Also, since mold plays a role in natural decay processes, we remove materials affected by the mold over long periods since they are likely to be structurally compromised.

SERVPRO of Maitland / Casselberry can help ease the challenges of addressing mold damage. Call us at (407) 388-0404 to assist you.

What To Do If You Find A Biohazard On Your Commercial Property

2/16/2021 (Permalink)

Biohazards, or biological and chemical contaminants, can pose serious dangers to your health and well-being. Not only do they create unhealthy and dangerous environments, but they put people at risk, which is why it’s integral to deal with biohazards properly in the event that you find one on your commercial property. Biohazards include, but are not limited to, the following.

  • Sewage backups
  • Crime scene residues
  • Suicide/death accidents
  • Homicide cleanups
  • Blood cleanup
  • Accident cleanup
  • Hoarding scenes
  • Animal waste/remains
  • Chemical spills
  • Tear gas cleanup
  • Meth lab cleanup

As you can see, many of these scenarios are glaringly hazardous to general health and safety, and you must be sure to call professionals to deal with the biohazard right away instead of attempting to manage it on your own.

Common biohazard scenarios include sewage backups, bloodborne pathogens, and illegal drug manufacturing labs/meth labs, which all pose emergencies that require immediate responses.

Casselberry Hidden Water Damages

Picture of washing machines Washing Machine Malfunctions Can Cause Water Damage

Think about the last time your appliances were moved or inspected

Many of us do not think about the household appliances that we use every single day. For most, they probably become a passing thought about how much wear and tear they are receiving. Most of the appliances we use to make our everyday lives easier to utilize water. This means they are prone to leaks at some point if they are not caught early on.  Water damage can sit for ages before you as a homeowner realize. Therefore, regular inspections are important for prevention.

Inspect These Appliances for Leaks Often

  • Hot Water Heater
    • The lifetime of a hot water heater will typically span 10 to 15 years, but leaks can start much earlier than this. The seals and pipes connected to the hot water heater can often break down, so keeping an eye out for any accumulation both during and after use is a smart move.
  • Refrigerator
    • The rarity with which refrigerators are moved can lead to secret water damage that festers for ages before it is brought to light. A refrigerator’s water lines are typically made from a soft plastic that can easily fail, so checking for leaks behind and under the fridge as part of your annual home maintenance is wise.
  • Dishwasher
    • A dishwasher’s tubing is just as problematic as a refrigerator but is even more isolated and utilizes far more water. Additionally, homeowner’s insurance often does not cover water damage caused by older models of dishwashers, so regular checks are extremely important to keep up with.
  • Washing Machine
    • Washing machine hoses are some of the most common sources of leaks. Because they are notorious for this, it is recommended that they are inspected at least once a month by homeowners so you can be sure no issues have arisen. In addition to these regular checks, they should be fully replaced every five years in order to prevent hidden deterioration.
  • Air Conditioner
    • The drain in your HVAC unit is designed to keep condensation from pooling in and around the unit, but if this drain malfunctions, water damage can quickly be caused. Reference your manufacturer’s manual to determine how often your unit should be inspected and serviced—having a professional technician evaluate your machine is the best defense against HVAC-created water damage.

Do you know the types of storm damage?

11/23/2020 (Permalink)

Here in the Maitland, Florida we can suffer from many types of storm damage. Some of those are wind damage, flood damage, and hail damage. Here are a few quick tips to consider should storm damage hit your home or commercial property.

Wind Damage Restoration
Hurricanes often cause severe wind damage. Your roof is particularly susceptible. Roof damage from strong winds may lift roof shingles, cause cracks, or remove part or all of the roof. Harsh winds and rains can shear away asphalt tiles. Flying debris can also cause cracks and holes in your roof and siding. Correcting roof damage may challenge homeowners and business owners after a disaster, especially because a roof leak may not be obvious.

Roof Leaks

Why are many roof leaks and roof damage hard to detect? The storm may loosen flashing without creating a problem that’s easily visible to the eye. Loose flashing can cause another roof leak even weeks after the initial storm damage. A small roof leak can produce damp, moldy conditions inside your home or business. You best bet is to secure roof repair immediately after the wind damage. Doing so can prevent long term interior damage. A wind damage restoration expert, like the professionals at SERVPRO of Maitland/Casselberry, will help assure the homeowner or business owner receives a comprehensive roof assessment and roof repair services when hurricane or wind damage hits.

Flood Damage & Recovery
If your home or business is near water or in a low-lying area, flood water damage is a risk. Heavy rains and flooding may cause water damage many miles from the coast or from any large body of water. If the land around your home or business cannot absorb the additional water flooding may happen. Flood pump failures contribute to basement flooding and contaminated ground water too.

Flooding may also disrupt your municipal water system. Experts need to assess ground water and evaluate the condition of pipes following flood damage. Hiring a storm restoration professional, like SERVPRO of Maitland/Casselberry may allow you to begin your cleanup process even before water restoration occurs. And don’t forget-- cleaning before water restoration often proves essential yet challenging.

By relying upon a trained water damage restoration specialist, you'll usually obtain faster storm remediation. These experts may suggest ways to help mitigate flood water damage in the future, for instance, by requesting backup flood pump installation.

Hail Damage & Recovery
Hail may be the most overlooked cause of major storm damage. Hail can damage not just your roof but also your siding, exterior walls, and any detached sheds or outbuildings. You may think you’ve survived a hail storm but do know that hail damage is difficult to identify. Again, you’re wise to hire a storm damage restoration professional to inspect your roof, exterior walls, and outbuildings for damage. Dark spots on your roof are areas where the roofing granules have been knocked away. These weakened spots can lead to other more extensive problems such as leaks and cracks. Cracked and chipped siding is also a sign of hail damage.

Impact Damage & Recovery
In a major storm practically anything can become a creator of damage to your home or business. Think about trees. Your home may survive storm damage only to have a tree on your property succumb to the wind, hail, or rain and fall onto your house. A neighbor’s outdoor lawn furniture can become wind-blown projectiles. Extreme wind pressure turns regular outdoor items into tools of destruction. After storm damage, the professionals at SERVPRO of Maitland/Casselberry do a walk around to look for the signs of these types of unusual damage.

Help Is Here

Why SERVPRO is the First Choice for Water, Fire, Storm, and Mold Damage Restoration Needs

11/19/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO tech walking a project When disasters cause home and commercial restoration emergencies, remember SERVPRO is always available for your restoration needs.

Why Maitland/Casselberry Residents can Act Decisively Against Storm, Mold, Fire or Water Damages

Central Florida residents use restoration services when unexpected home emergencies occur. By doing so, they can often save thousands of dollars in potential secondary damages that may occur as a result of improper or home restoration services. Our company has been a stalwart in the community of Greater Orlando for several years. It partakes in regular donations of both money and time to charity missions like clothing drives or children's shelters. Throughout the year, our servicemen and women are on-hand to help you overcome an emergency with minimum inconvenience and expense. Contact us anytime to arrange restoration services for water, mold, storm, or fire-related damages.

Water Damage Restoration

Homeowners may experience water damage in their Orlando area home at any time of year. These can be either in the form of excessive quantities of moisture in a short period overloading a home's defenses, or long-term problems creeping up over several months. Whether your Maitland home falls victim to flooding or a slow internal leaking, our water restoration technicians (WRT) are on-hand to provide the assistance you need. SERVPRO is available twenty-four-hours a day and even runs an out-of-hours service for emergencies.

Water incidents in your property can cause a chain reaction of interrelated issues. These issues may include problems with odor, microbial bacteria, fungi, or soiling of your possessions. SERVPRO restoration services are comprehensive in their approach to your Maitland/Casselberry home and can stop damage as well as putting in place proven methods to reverse it. Usually, we start by thoroughly removing water from the property, then drying using proper drying methods.

Bringing venting box fans to your Maitland/Casselberry home, as well as the careful placement of portable heating, can help to encourage natural evaporation. Natural evaporation is useful in removing moisture that may have absorbed into furnishings, upholstery, or flooring. Using moisture probes, SERVPRO can accurately assess the moisture content of any given material and can keep returning during the restoration service to ensure reaching our goals.

Mold Remediation

Indoor air quality is becoming increasingly prominent in the restoration service industry. Often, homeowners are surprised by quite how many toxins can exist in a home environment. The issue is especially pertinent in homeowners that have mold damage in their Orlando area homes. Molds breed by releasing microscopic spores into the surrounding atmosphere. These spores can cause unpleasant odors as well as ingestion when inhaling indoor air. SERVPRO takes decisive action during mold remediation to ensure the spread is limited and your air-quality restored.

Setting up containment is an essential part of the restoration. Usually, an area of your Orlando area home that shows evidence of mold growth needs quarantining. The removal of mold colonies or demolition of infested materials increases airborne spores. SERVPRO applies negative air pressure when performing controlled demolitions to ensure that the spread of spores is under control. Also, we may use physical barriers such as polyurethane sheeting to prevent microscopic spores from escaping.

Airborne particles are frequently invisible to the naked eye. This invisibility makes it challenging for a homeowner to assess or act against unwanted indoor air particles. Using high-efficiency particulate air-filters (HEPA), SERVPRO technicians can remove particles from the air that are as small as 0.3 microns. Air scrubbing equipment combined with deodorizing methods saves time on the turnaround of your restoration service.

Storm Damage Restoration

Storms can expose your home to outdoor elements as well as pathogens that may enter in floodwaters. Extraction is the most effective method of controlling storm damage in your Maitland/Casselberry home. However, to be truly useful, you need to combine rapid extraction with careful cleaning and drying. At SERVPRO, we often find homeowners suffering from microbial growth or mold issues traced back to initial flooding several weeks or months before.

Our restoration services focus on a complete, thorough approach to both removal and drying of moisture in your Orlando area home. When water is extracted and dried, it can leave behind microbes or stain on the flooring materials of your home. We use rotary floor machines to both loosen soiling from hard surfaces and apply pre-conditioning agents to soft ones like carpets. Rotary machines not only help to dislodge severe soiling but can help to buffer floors and leave them in a preloss condition.

Flooding as a result of stormy conditions can seem unfair. SERVPRO can help you to redress the balance by providing expert, locally-based technicians who can complete the job on time and on-budget. If the damage necessitates relocation temporarily, we can perform the vital mitigation tasks needed to prevent your home from suffering permanent damage in the interim period. SERVPRO restoration services are available to all residents of Orlando area in an emergency.

Fire Damage Restoration

If your heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system are on, it can cause extensive fire damage to your Maitland/Casselberry home. Air entering the supply side can overload filters causing hot smokes to travel through ventilation shafts. Return side outlets can then end up spewing soots, odor, and ash into unaffected regions of the house. SERVPRO restoration services incorporate a comprehensive game plan for HVAC inspection, cleaning, and replacement of ventilation ducts.

Hot smokes are attracted to cooler surfaces, which include the metal insides of a ventilation shaft. These can deposit thick soiling onto the inner sides of an HVAC system, which can be challenging and technical to clean. SERVPRO restoration services here in Orlando area can remove both return and supply-side air ducts to carry out in-depth inspections. Using air whips, we can dislodge loose soiling, which can then vacuum out using negative air pressure machines. Cleaning of the interior closest to the wall- where soiling builds up- can be cleaned using water and oil-based solvents.

Once your HVAC is clean, we can begin to perform repairs. Cavities opened with a circular drill for negative air pressure machine access can be resealed using aluminum plating. We can replace ducts in every room inexpensively. Return side ventilation filters need replacing to ensure that odor remains under control, and your home brought to a preloss condition.

Home emergencies are unexpected and, at times, seem unfair. Contact SERVPRO of Maitland/Casselberry at (407) 388-0404 for assistance with mold, storm, fire, or water-related incidents.
