Mold in your commercial building?

Storm Flooding and Home Air Quality

10/12/2019 (Permalink)

Although water is essential to our lives, it can be devastating when it arrives in large quantities when a storm hits.  Many homeowners have experienced this as the victims of flooding.  When floodwater flows into the house, it normally brings bugs, debris, and micro-organisms with it.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County can be your answer.

A lesser-known problem accompanying flooding, however, is the damage it does to the air quality in a home.  When items become wet for over 48 hours, they tend to become moldy.  Mold spores are not limited to the areas upon which they rest.  They float throughout the air and are easily inhaled.

Additionally, floodwater is usually rampant with micro-organisms which may present a health hazard.  These organisms are likely to penetrate into porous materials and may later be released into air or other water.  High humidity and ongoing moisture provide an ideal environment for these organisms to grow.  As time goes on, long-term humidity may also foster the growth of dust mites, which are a major cause of asthma and allergic reactions.

Drying out the flooded house is not a quick process.  This is where our trained technicians at SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County come into play.  It can take several weeks.  Materials such as carpet cannot be adequately dried out and cleaned for future use.  These will need to be discarded.  Doors and windows should be opened.  Cabinet and closet doors should also be opened.  Cabinet drawers should be opened as well.  Otherwise, they will likely swell and be difficult to open later.  Dehumidifiers are very helpful in lowering the level of moisture.  If the air conditioner was under water, it should be cleaned before being run.  Otherwise, it will likely blow contaminants into the house.

Appliances which are affected by floodwaters should be inspected by a professional before being used again.

Homeowners who live in a flood-prone area should also store hazardous household materials on higher shelves, in an effort to keep them dry in the event of a flood.  If these products mix with the floodwater, additional health hazards may result. 

If you are dealing with mold that resulted from a flood, we recommend that you call SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County immediately.  We have offices in Navarre, Pace/Milton, and Gulf Breeze, Florida.  We are here 24/7.  

Why Choose SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County for your Fire Restoration needs?

The process of fire restoration is very involved when it is performed properly. The best way to have the most up to date techniques and approaches applied to the problem is to hire certified professionals from SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County.  Our technicians have experience and training and have access to the equipment and skills that are requisite for a proper restoration.

For , general cleaning is done to remove ash and soot from ceiling to floor for Fire Damage. Later, when almost all other aspects of the remediation are complete, thorough carpet cleaning takes place. Thermal fogging or chemical scrubs may be utilized to combat the dirt, smoke, and soot that are caught in the recesses of the homes hard surfaces, including ceiling, walls and flooring. Reconstruction may have to be performed to parts of the building that cannot be returned to their former condition with mere cleaning.

The quick remediation of the problem is important for more than repairs, it is also a health consideration. Allowing the moisture or smoke residue to remain can decrease air quality. Having a professional come to assist with drying and dehumidifying after water damage is a large part of mold prevention.

Kitchen Fires and Lingering Odor?

10/7/2019 (Permalink)

Ozone Machine Ozone Machine

The busiest part of the house is the kitchen and it can also be the most dangerous. Fire in the kitchen can be disastrous. Most of, if not all or your kitchen items will still have the lingering smell for a significant time after the fire. When the affected area is not cleaned correctly it may become permanent.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County does not recommend you attempt to clean fire damage yourself. Go through the proper channels to ensure everything is taken care of by professionals. After our technicians assess what has happened, there are a few steps SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County can take if your home suffers fire damage.  
SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County can use our "ozone machines" for such jobs.  
"Ozone machines" work by creating ozone (o3) via an electrical charge. Ozone is very unstable: o3 wanting to become o2. That third oxygen molecule is looking for something else to bond with. It bonds very well with the smoke, distorting the smoke molecule and neutralizing the smoke odor.

SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County  will plug the ozone machine into the wall, set the timer (12-24 hours depending on the extent of the smoke damage) and let it do its thing in your home. After the timer is up you need to let the ozone break down completely into regular o2. (I recommend a full 24 hours). The house will smell a little weird, kinda bleach-like. But that fades completely as the ozone breaks down. Ozone half life is less than half an hour, so giving a full 24 hours will ensure that everything is back to normal inside.

IMPORTANT: The only hard part about all this is that NOTHING alive may be in the house while you are ozoning. It is very, very harmful to breath the stuff in. No people, no plants, no pets... you have to clear everything alive out. Pack up the family and move in with a friend or into a hotel for about two days (one to ozone, one to clear the air of ozone). Once the o3 breaks down into o2 there is no harm.
