An Emergency Cleaning Service Reveals What to Do Before & After Storm Damage

Storm Damage An Emergency Cleaning Service Reveals What to Do Before & After Storm Damage Florida Storm Damage

A Florida storm can be incredibly dangerous to yourself and the home. That is why it is imperative to understand how to properly prepare for one, as well as what to do after any damage occurs. To help with this, SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach, offering emergency cleaning services, has shared their advice.

What You Should Do Before & After a Storm

1. Before the Storm

Before a hurricane hits, a warning will be issued out. In most cases, you'll have at least 48-hours to prepare. Keep a radio or television on the news station to be informed of updates. Or, download a local weather app to your phone. If the storm is not severe enough for evacuation, take a few actions to protect yourself at home. Those without hurricane shutters should board up their window; plywood five-eighths of an inch thick is sufficient. Then, clear your yard of all debris or loose objects. Keep your car full of gas and always have an emergency kit nearby.

2. After the Storm

After the storm has passed, you must be careful as you move about. Take note of any fallen boards, exposed nails, broken glass, or weakened structures. If excessive damage has occurred, vacate the premises until professionals can arrive. Even if the area seems secure, be wary of standing water.

Mold can begin growing in warm, humid environments within 24-hours. Consider staying in a hotel until this can be remediated. Before moving or touching fallen or broken objects, take photos of the damages. This provides evidence and helps you get reimbursed for emergency cleaning services.

3. Make the Call

There are a few people you must call after a storm. First, contact your insurance agency; inform them of the disaster, tell them you have photographs of the damage, and ask about your policy. They will likely send an adjuster to your home for an inspection. You will then know the extent of the repairs and costs. After that, you can call for water extraction. Do this as soon as possible to prevent further water damage to your home and furniture.

After a tropical storm, call SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach. This local business has a reputation for being affordable and top-quality in all of their emergency cleaning services. Whether you’re dealing with water damage, mold remediation, or simply need carpet cleaning, their certified experts are prepared for every job.

How to Prevent Water Damage From Storms or Leaks

6/19/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage How to Prevent Water Damage From Storms or Leaks Storm Flooding

If you live in an area with extreme weather, then water extraction is an inevitable necessity. But, with preventative measures, you can help avoid water damage in your home and prevent costly repairs. The team at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach is discussing some of the top ways to prepare for storm season this year.

The Top 3 Ways to Prevent Water Damage

1. Properly Storing Valuables

Since you can’t always avoid storms or leaks, the best way to prevent water from destroying your belongings is with proper storage. Go through your home, garage, and attic and put all your valuables on higher shelves in the rooms. You can also purchase plastic storage bins and stack them on top of one another. In the event of storms or significant leaks, most items will be protected from standing water damage when properly stored.

2. Seasonal Cleaning

Throughout the year, it’s tempting to throw unused items into the basement or garage. But when a big hurricane appears, you might not have time to clear these rooms out. To avoid potential water damage from ruining your items, clean before storm season approaches. Store seasonal items in plastic bins with secure lids, and donate unused belongings to prevent clutter. If a room requires professional water extraction, clutter will only make the problem worse.

3. Gutters

Properly functioning gutters are essential during storm season because they help guide water away from the home and foundation. Clogged gutters can spell disaster. Without anywhere to go, the water will backflow into your home, potentially causing significant water damage. Make it a priority to regularly clean gutters and have them professionally maintained throughout the year.

For professional water extraction in Florida, reach out to the experts at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach. Whether you need emergency cleaning services or water damage restoration, their team is equipped to handle a wide scope of projects for commercial and residential properties. Visit them online for more information or contact them at (904) 429-4457.

The team at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach in St. Augustine, FL, are the area’s premier water damage restorers and specialty cleaners. They can help you out when your property has been damaged in a storm.

Here’s what you need to do when you discover water damage:

  • Mop Excess Water: It’s perfectly okay to start the cleanup process before storm damage restoration services providers arrive. You can blot and mop away excess water on hardwood floors, and even carpets, to get the cleaning process started. Feel free to use towels and dishcloths to soak up water sitting on countertops and tabletops. 
  • Organize Items: Your professional cleaners will arrive with large pieces of equipment and tools to take care of various steps of the excess water removal and cleanup process. Clear away entryways of clutter and small pieces of furniture. Prop up furniture against walls to make space for carpet cleaners, vacuums, fans and other machines.
  • Remove Art & Fragile Items: You will want to carefully remove any artwork and other fragile items from areas that will be cleaned. Make sure to take extra care when climbing ladders or furniture to reach items in higher places since some surfaces may be slippery. Take your time to remove and store these items in waterproof containers or cover them with towels until the cleanup is complete.

Whether your home, office, or property is flooded after a major rainstorm in Greater St. Augustine, you’ll need professional services to repair any damage and prevent water leaks and mold buildup.

Crawlspace Concerns? Yes, We do that!

12/29/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Crawlspace Concerns? Yes, We do that! This home has no vapor barrier, exposed insulation, and multiple other threats to the home!

Homes that are elevated usually feature a small crawlspace under the home. In most cases, these crawlspaces are heavily neglected for a number a reasons. Most people don't have the desire to crawl in the dark, wet, and cramped spaces underneath their home to provide routine maintenance. That's where your #LOCAL SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach comes in!

Here are a few things that we want you to know about your crawlspace:

Your crawlspace should always feature a vapor barrier. A properly installed vapor barrier can help eliminate moisture build up, which will help defend against mold.

Ductwork, plumbing pipes, and electric wiring run underneath your house in the crawlspace. In order for your home to operate efficiently, ductwork should be protected by insulation, electrical wires should be covered with protective plastic, and pipes should be insulated to avoid the drastic temperature changes that occur in the crawlspace. Pesky critters also lurk in crawl spaces, and having your pipes, wires, and ductwork covered will help eliminate damage.

Pro Tip: Installing a Sub Pump in your crawl space will help to eliminate standing water. Standing water is the number one threat to the integrity of your home.

If you have questions about your crawlspace, call us today for a free evaluation!

Our teams here at SERVPRO were standing by ready to assist, and as soon as the roads cleared our teams dispatched to help our city recover.

Is Flood Water Dangerous? YES!

9/22/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Is Flood Water Dangerous? YES! All items featured in the photo would need to be removed in the event of Category 3 water intrusion

If your home or business was the victim of flooding from Hurricane Irma, remediation should be considered immediately. Water is classified into 3 distinct categories. Category 1 water is considered sanitary water, coming from the sink, toilet tank, water fountain etc.

Category 2 water (previously referred to as “Grey Water”) comes from dishwashers, washing machines, and small toilet overflows that don’t contain feces. Any water that passes through multiple materials (Ex: water overflowing from the washing machine, into the carpet, and into the carpet pad) is considered category 2 water and is harmful if ingested.

Category 3 water is the most serious form of water intrusion, as it is considered grossly contaminated. Previously known as “Black water,” category 3 flooding is most often caused by natural disasters such as hurricanes. The water that enters a building from a hurricane potentially contains sewer backup, contaminates from rivers, ponds and streams, and other stagnant liquids containing bacterial growth.

Proper remediation requires removal of all contents that the category 3 water has the ability to infect. Cabinets, laminate flooring, drywall, baseboards and other porous materials should be removed within 72 hours to prevent further contamination. Failure to remove items affected by category 3 water poses threats of serious illness and will compromise the integrity of all items in the immediate area.

If your home or business flooded during Hurricane Irma, please contact SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach immediately for a free consultation and estimate. Our office staff is standing by at 904-429-4457 to assist you in your time of need.

What to do during a tornado

6/14/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage What to do during a tornado Tornado damage in St. Johns County, Florida.

In a house with a basement: Avoid windows. Get in the basement and under some kind of sturdy protection (heavy table or work bench), or cover yourself with a mattress or sleeping bag. Know where very heavy objects rest on the floor above (pianos, refrigerators, waterbeds, etc.) and do not go under them. They may fall down through a weakened floor and crush you. Head protection, such as a helmet, can boost survivability also.

In a house with no basement, a dorm, or an apartment: Avoid windows. Go to the lowest floor, small center room (like a bathroom or closet), under a stairwell, or in an interior hallway with no windows. Crouch as low as possible to the floor, facing down; and cover your head with your hands. A bath tub may offer a shell of partial protection. Even in an interior room, you should cover yourself with some sort of thick padding (mattress, blankets, etc.), to protect against falling debris in case the roof and ceiling fail. A helmet can offer some protection against head injury.

In an office building, hospital, nursing home or skyscraper: Go directly to an enclosed, windowless area in the center of the building -- away from glass and on the lowest floor possible. Then, crouch down and cover your head. Interior stairwells are usually good places to take shelter, and if not crowded, allow you to get to a lower level quickly. Stay off the elevators; you could be trapped in them if the power is lost.

In a mobile home: Get out! Even if your home is tied down, it is not as safe as an underground shelter or permanent, sturdy building. Go to one of those shelters, or to a nearby permanent structure, using your tornado evacuation plan. Most tornadoes can destroy even tied-down mobile homes; and it is best not to play the low odds that yours will make it. This mobile-home safety video from the State of Missouri may be useful in developing your plan.

At school:Follow the drill! Go to the interior hall or windowless room in an orderly way as you are told. Crouch low, head down, and protect the back of your head with your arms. Stay away from windows and large open rooms like gyms and auditoriums.

In a car or truck: Vehicles are extremely risky in a tornado. There is no safe option when caught in a tornado in a car, just slightly less-dangerous ones. If the tornado is visible, far away, and the traffic is light, you may be able to drive out of its path by moving at right angles to the tornado. Seek shelter in a sturdy building, or underground if possible. If you are caught by extreme winds or flying debris, park the car as quickly and safely as possible -- out of the traffic lanes. Stay in the car with the seat belt on. Put your head down below the windows; cover your head with your hands and a blanket, coat, or other cushion if possible. If you can safely get noticeably lower than the level of the roadway,leave your car and lie in that area, covering your head with your hands. Avoid seeking shelter under bridges, which can create deadly traffic hazards while offering little protection against flying debris.

In the open outdoors: If possible, seek shelter in a sturdy building. If not, lie flat and face-down on low ground, protecting the back of your head with your arms. Get as far away from trees and cars as you can; they may be blown onto you in a tornado.

In a shopping mall or large store: Do not panic. Watch for others. Move as quickly as possible to an interior bathroom, storage room or other small enclosed area, away from windows.

In a church or theater: Do not panic. If possible, move quickly but orderly to an interior bathroom or hallway, away from windows. Crouch face-down and protect your head with your arms. If there is no time to do that, get under the seats or pews, protecting your head with your arms or hands.

In 2016, Hurricane Matthew swept across the coast of Florida leaving a trail of devastation in its wake.

Throughout this devastation came something amazing; our community rallied together, working tirelessly for months to repair the damage and assist those in need.

                With hurricane Matthew serving as a constant reminder of the force that hurricanes present, we here at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine want to help our community prepare for hurricane season.

Water Damage: 3 things any homeowner must know.

Storm Damage Water Damage: 3 things any homeowner must know. Photo shows cleaned carpet after water damage was professionally mitigated by SERVPRO's St. Augustine location.

Water damage can take a toll on your home, whether you’re dealing with a burst pipe or a backed-up toilet. Though addressing the damage quickly is important, there are a few things you need to know about water damage prior to calling the experts at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach.


Their water extraction professionals have put together a few things to help every Florida homeowner be prepared:


Insurance Policies Won’t Cover All Water Damage


Unfortunately, most homeowners insurance policies are incredibly specific about the types of damage they cover. Most policies cover damage caused by broken pipes or appliance failures but, generally, will not cover damage caused by natural disasters. If you’re concerned about your home’s risk for floods or hurricane damage, you may want to invest in an additional policy.


Report the Damage Quickly


Water may not seem like a major problem, but it’s important that you report the damage to your insurance company as soon as possible. The faster you report the problem, the faster they can help you get the mess cleaned up, reducing the risk of mold and mildew growth throughout your property.


Contact a Professional Water Extraction Team


When it comes to water damage, many homeowners believe they can simply clean up the mess themselves. While this may be true for small leaks, it can present a major safety hazard. Water quality matters and the steps required to clean up water damage from an overflowing toilet differ from those used to clean up a burst pipe. Remember, contaminated water from the sewer can contain bacteria, viruses, and other harmful substances.


Don’t let water ruin your home. Contact the water extraction experts at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach as soon as you notice a problem and let the professionals handle your home’s restoration. For more information on their mold remediation and biohazard cleanup services, visit their website and call (904) 429-4457 to schedule an appointment.

5 Steps to successful Storm and Water Damage restoration

4/16/2017 (Permalink)

Storm damage isn’t something you can plan for. One minute, it’s a beautiful sunny day with a few clouds in the distance, and the next thing you know, the wind is picking up, and you’re battening down the hatches to weather out the storm. No one knows what to expect once they step back outside. That’s why it’s best to have a connection with the top storm damage restoration company in the area. SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach has provided numerous emergency cleaning services to clients throughout northeastern Florida and has the experience needed to help you recover after a storm.

5 Steps For Storm Damage Restoration

1. Call The Professionals Immediately

Don’t attempt to sort through the damage on your own, as some structures may be unsafe and could cause injury to you or a loved one. Contact the experts at SERVPRO as soon as possible. With their convenient 24/7 customer service line, you can count on these local contractors to be available whenever you need them.

2. Inspect The Property

Once the professionals have arrived at your property, they’ll perform a thorough inspection to determine the amount of damage that was sustained. Don’t hesitate to ask them to walk you around. They’ll point out the areas that should be repaired and will discuss the solutions available to you.

3. Take Photos Of The Damage

Don’t leave anything to chance. Take photos so you can refer to them throughout the storm damage restoration process. This way, if any questions are asked after the repairs are completed, you have photographic proof of the damage that was sustained after the storm.

4. Talk With Your Insurance Agent

This is the reason you have insurance! After you’ve had an inspection done by an expert, it’s time to file a claim with your insurance company. Sometimes, the professional who performed the inspection will contact them directly to act as a middle man, so talk with SERVPRO about how it should be handled. You have about 12 to 24 months to officially file a claim.

5. Connect With A Trusted Contractor

Do your research before hiring a contractor. Most times, your insurance company will provide two or three contractors for you to contact, so you at least have a place to start in your search. Don’t hesitate to ask for estimates and schedule face-to-face interviews. This will help you find out how much experience they have and whether or not you feel comfortable having them work on your property.

The best thing about working with SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach is they provide both inspection and repair services. If you’re starting to feel overwhelmed by the whole storm damage restoration process, call (904) 429-4457 to talk directly with a friendly company representative. They’ll set you up with an inspection and guide you through each step. Visit their website or Facebook page for additional information on water damage repairs and carpet cleaning.
