How Threatening Can Stormwater Be to Naples Homes?

Our SERVPRO team can help with the extraction and drying of storm damaged Naples properties

Being a coastal community, Naples homes and businesses see a large share of severe weather events throughout specific seasons. As problematic as these circumstances can be, storms' aftereffects on structures can require stormwater extraction and other emergency services water damage to overcome. Our professionals have powerful stormwater extraction equipment and drying tools. We can help to make these natural disasters "Like it never even happened."

How Likely is Storm Damage in Naples?

With an annual rainfall of 54 inches of rain, Naples averages nearly 16 inches of rain against a national expectancy. Much of these higher volumes of severe weather conditions bringing torrential or soaking rains into the forecast happen in the summer months between June and September, the heaviest being July. A need for stormwater extraction in Naples is often the first indication that a passing weather event has compromised the property. Our professionals can help with:

  • Burst pipes
  • Ceiling leaks
  • Flood restoration
  • Water damage remediation
  • Emergency services water damage
  • Flooded bathrooms and kitchens

After the devastation wrought by Hurricane Irma along the Southwest coast of Florida in 2017, homeowners soon appreciated the value of a fast response by qualified technicians for stormwater extraction. Our SERVPRO team was a large loss provider in these situations, helping many properties overcome this hurricane's destructive force simultaneously. National weather organizations have estimated that Naples gets struck or severely brushed by natural disasters like hurricanes nearly every two and a half years.

How Fast Can SERVPRO Help with Stormwater Extraction?

Leaking roofs from storms and water damage repairs are critical focal points for our responding technicians after homes become battered by fierce passing storms. Stormwater extraction is a priority in these situations because standing water can threaten the entire household and its contents. Our fast-responding technicians can reduce the impact that pooling has on a residence by implementing several extractors and water removal tools in our inventory like submersible pumps and wet vacuums.

Fast response to water damage incidents for stormwater extraction and flood restoration needs begins in our warehouse. Trailers and production vehicles stay stocked in our station with leading water damage restoration equipment to reach these emergencies within hours of recognizing a developing damaging situation. Implementing emergency services water damage from the earliest stages of recovery can best protect customer homes and contents.

Does Stormwater Extraction Only Mean Surface Water?

Our SERVPRO technicians begin stormwater extraction upon arrival when surface water concerns exist, but this effort goes beyond the flooring. Submersible pumps and wet vacuums can address standing water concerns on hardwood, tile, and other hard or low-porosity materials. With sensitive materials like carpeting, absorption is a substantial concern from exposure. Without fast extraction solutions, our SERVPRO professionals can implement other extraction devices in our inventory to pull moisture and damp pockets from carpet fibers, padding, and even subflooring materials.

Weighted removal tools for stormwater extraction utilize technicians' weight to force water to the surface of carpets for removal by on-board vacuums. Likewise, attachments for wet vacuums like carpet wands and light wands can remove trapped moisture to reduce material deterioration.

Can Experienced Professionals Be Ready 24/7?

After natural disasters and severe weather systems impact Naples and Florida's west coast, many homes and businesses require fast and reliable stormwater extraction efforts from competent restoration professionals. Choosing the right team to help often means vetting the experience and the knowledge of selected experts to ensure you get credible work done efficiently for reasonable rates.

Developing the talent on our team means hands-on training and continued coursework through standard-setting organizations and restoration firms. We have premier stormwater extraction techniques stemming from the advanced training programs through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to give the majority of our roster certification and accreditations in:

  • Water Restoration (WRT)
  • Applied Structural Drying (ASD)
  • Commercial Drying (CDS)
  • Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT)

How Can Penetrating Storm Water Damage Structural Elements?

Before stormwater extraction efforts begin, direct exposure to sensitive materials can cause a migration of moisture. Much like how quickly circumstances like burst pipes or ceiling leaks can spread water throughout a property, absorption and saturation bring this moisture from the surface to more challenging areas to dry, such as structural cavities. Stormwater extraction starting quickly can reduce this migration to an extent, but once absorption begins in structural elements like wall systems and ceiling system materials, controlled demolition is necessary.

After roughly a day of direct exposure, materials like sheetrock can bloat and begin deteriorating. After several days, these materials can become too heavy to remain installed and collapse or crumble. Stormwater extraction starting rapidly can reduce how overwhelmed building materials become. We can offer multiple solutions for drying, cleaning, and repairing homes after:

  • Ceiling leaks
  • Burst pipes
  • Flood restoration
  • Water damage remediation
  • Emergency services water damage
  • Flooded bathrooms and kitchens

Is Mold a Concern for Post-Storm Recovery?

When stormwater extraction does not happen as fast as it should, this prolonged moisture exposure can provide the ideal conditions for mold and microbial growth. Because these organisms can cause health effects for those exposed, our responding AMRT-certified team members need to assess mold threats and begin remediation. If homeowners discover black mold or attic mold after stormwater exposure, our professionals have unique strategies for removing colonies to prevent unnecessary tear-out and reconstruction. We can help with:

  • Mold remediation
  • Attic mold
  • Bathroom mold removal
  • Mold specialists
  • Black mold

Stormwater extraction and drying efforts can reduce moist conditions that can facilitate mold growth and microbial colonization. Restoration professionals work with our water damage remediation technicians after ceiling repairs from water damages, leaking roof from storms, and flood restoration.

When severe weather impacts homes and businesses throughout the Naples area, our SERVPRO of East Naples team can respond quickly to help. We have capable equipment for stormwater extraction and advanced drying of damaged homes. Give us a call anytime at (239) 842-7244.

Can Fire and Smoke Cleanup Start Quickly in Naples Homes?

3/9/2021 (Permalink)

fire damaged room, yellow warning tape caution From the initial fire damage response to the final restoration Naples properties owners trust SERVPRO

Our SERVPRO professionals provide efficient cleaning, restoration, and repairs after fire damage

Fires can develop quickly in East Naples homes and from multiple sources, meaning that beyond the fast response of firefighting teams and other emergency crews, you need rapid fire and smoke cleanup as well. Our professionals have extensive experience and training with both in-house cleaning and recovery solutions as well as smoke remediation strategies for contents relocated to our SERVPRO facility. We can be a one-stop-shop for nearly all of your fire damage restoration needs.

Can SERVPRO Arrive Quickly to Fire Damaged Homes?

One of the distinct advantages to choosing the fire and smoke cleanup from our SERVPRO professionals is how quickly we respond to fire damaged homes. With house fire cleanup, every minute counts – and that is why We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. We have trained professionals ready 24/7 to mobilize with our top-tier equipment and cleaning products to overcome threatening conditions and lingering damage.

Because of our central Naples location, we can reach the thousands of residents in the city and its outer lying communities fast when emergencies occur. Naples structure fire and smoke cleanup practices require a trained eye to ensure water & fire damage restorations are as efficient as possible and target the most significant obstacles and concerns first. Fire and smoke cleanup can require a combination of our cleaning technicians, our Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT), and our general contracting license.

Our fire and smoke cleanup help with:

  • Fire damage restoration
  • Fire and smoke damage
  • Smoke remediation
  • Fire damaged homes

How Can Smoke Residues Vary from Fire to Fire?

No two fire and smoke cleanup circumstances are the same, namely due to the composition of soils and threatening conditions in the residence. From the materials burned when the fire is spreading to the atmospheric conditions, many factors play a role in our responding technicians' difficulty with fire and smoke cleanup. After extinguishment, fire damage restoration begins with a thorough inspection of the property to determine the type of damages that exist and how they might become potential obstacles for our smoke remediation team.

Smoke residues can get broken into several categories, including:

  • Dry Smoke – Dry smoke conditions are among the easiest to handle regarding smoke remediation but also follow some of the more destructive fire sequences. A chalky film residue gets left on surfaces and contents nearby, making fire and smoke cleanup consist of wiping down materials. 
  • Wet Smoke – This often results from smoldering, and these residues can be among the most challenging for fire and smoke cleanup. Thick, dark-soiling results that require several cleaning products and practices to overcome.
  • Protein Residues – Kitchen flare-ups can often lead to smoke damage in homes as well, namely protein residues that become affixed to the cabinetry, countertops, walls, and other surfaces. Fire and smoke cleanup utilizes solvents and detergents to loosen these grease deposits and remove them.

Is Air Filtration Vital to Making Fire Damage Restoration Safer?

From the time our professionals first arrive to begin fire and smoke cleanup in your Naples home, we must address pressing concerns before much of this process can get underway. Post-fire conditions can often be hazardous for those without the appropriate personal protective equipment, so the necessary steps to make the environment safer can be vital. Circulating carcinogens and other contaminants pose the most significant health concerns, so filtration practices can ensure that fire and smoke cleanup get started as soon as possible in fire damaged homes.

Is Soot Mitigation a Considerable Feat of Fire and Smoke Cleanup?

Perhaps the most threatening obstacle for responding technicians beginning fire and smoke cleanup in a residence is the presence of soot. The type of residue makes a difference in the practice used for removal. Once this gets identified, our FSRT team can begin applying the appropriate cleaning products to remove surface threats and protect underlying materials. Prolonged exposure to acidic soot residues can damage the finish of surfaces or stain them, making them impossible to clean. We have controlled demolition possible with our general contractor license to help when refinishing or cleaning exposed materials is not enough.

With soot being such a considerable threat to your home and its occupants, our experienced team can oversee fire and smoke cleanup by helping with:

  • Smoke remediation
  • Fire and smoke damage
  • Fire damage restoration
  • Fire damaged homes

How Can Smoke Remediation Strategies Overcome Odors?

Beyond the residues that must get addressed with fire and smoke cleanup, smoke remediation targets lingering odors in the house as well. While removing smells might be among the final stages of restoration, it is vital to return the house to its original condition. Fire damaged homes can have circulating smoke odors and contend with trapped smells in porous materials exposed like carpeting, wood, drywall, and more. Fire and smoke cleanup hinges on remediating these noxious odors as well with effective neutralization and deodorization practices. We have leading equipment to overcome harsh smells left behind in your residence after a fire, including:

  • Charcoal-Filtered Air Scrubbers
  • HEPA Products
  • ULV/Thermal Fogging Equipment
  • Hydroxyl Generators
  • Ozone Generators
  • Odor Counteractant Pellets/Granules

Can SERVPRO Conduct Fire and Smoke Damage Repairs?

With a general contractor license, our SERVPRO team's capabilities when beginning fire and smoke cleanup expand immensely. Instead of requiring customers to find alternatives for repairs and demolition necessary after a structure fire, we can keep this work in-house to maximize efficiency, lessen costs, and ultimately make it "Like it never even happened." Our license can allow us to help with controlled demolition, board-up services, debris removal, content relocation, and full-scale reconstruction.

Fires can be a devastating force for Naples homes and businesses, but with our experienced fire and smoke cleanup team, it does not have to stay devastating and overwhelming for long. Give our SERVPRO of East Naples team a call anytime to help in an emergency (239) 842-7244.

Can SERVPRO Help with Common Water Damage Threats in Naples?

3/1/2021 (Permalink)

servpro vehicles at site Why do Naples homeowners rely on SERVPRO for water damage remediation? We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Homes and businesses in Naples can rely on the fast response of our SERVPRO team in an emergency.

Water disasters are among the most common threats that homeowners face in the area, making our response to East Naples properties critical in limiting the spread and severity of these situations. As fast as these scenarios can get out of control, our prompt deployment of emergency services water damage can help regulate and manage overwhelming conditions.

How Do Water Damage Threats Compromise Your Home?

Depending on the type of damage your home or business endures because of water and moisture exposure, the effect can vary. Often conditions do not have to reach a critical point when restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team respond quickly. Standing water after burst pipes or circumstances allowing crawlspace flooding can be among the most significant threats, requiring flood restoration.

Extraction and water removal services are among the emergency services water damage that we provide, allowing our team to remove pressing threats and identify where other restoration, repairs, and reconstruction might be necessary. Our experienced roster can help with:

  • Flood restoration
  • Ceiling leaks
  • Burst pipes
  • Water damage remediation
  • Emergency services water damage

When Aging Plumbing Causes Ceiling Leaks in Naples Homes

Many Naples homes still feature the original plumbing, often made of lead and copper pipes. Modern plumbing has begun to lean more on flexible and long-lasting plastic PEX options, but original materials are still common as well, with any homes built more than a decade ago. Over time, oxidation and other chemical processes can pit these pipes and leave weak spots where pressure fluctuations can exploit them.

Burst pipes and flooding can result from compromised connections and portions of plumbing, not to mention devastating situations like ceiling leaks that can permit water and moisture damage in high-traffic areas of your home and the development of mold and mildew. Correcting these conditions requires the fast response of our water damage remediation professionals and our general contractor license. Together, these elements can provide a comprehensive approach to flood restoration, recovery, and repair.

Can SERVPRO Rebuild After Pipe Bursts?

Pressure fluctuations like air hammers in water service lines can target weak connections or portions of pipe in your plumbing system and cause damages. Burst pipes are often among the most common of these and also among the most destructive that require flood restoration after home or crawlspace flooding. Emergency services water damage often seeks to remove the moisture and water as efficiently as possible, but our team must also acknowledge reconstruction and repair needs.

With a general contractor license, we can offer many services to help homeowners and business owners after a water disaster. When plumbing becomes damaged, our license ensures we can address both the water damage effects and the repairs necessary to restore this vital service in the building. Plumbing repairs and full-scale reconstruction capabilities allow us to be a one-stop-shop for restoration and recovery.

How Likely Are Appliances to Fail in Your Naples Home?

Appliances add convenience to everyday life but can also be one of the leading contributing causes to water damage events like room flooding or leaking ceilings that occur in homes and businesses. Tracking these potential problems can feel impossible, as many appliances do not often indicate when wear or problems exist. From broken seals to over-pressurization, a malfunction of water-fed devices can have destructive results. Tanks like a residential water heater can range from 40-80 gallons in capacity, causing enough pooling to substantially water damage exposed flooring, baseboards, and wall system materials. 

Servicing appliances annually, including inspections of your residential water heater, can reduce the possibility of unexpected water disasters. When these do occur, SERVPRO professionals on our team can respond quickly to help with flood restoration. Much like water pipe bursts, extraction, and emergency services, water damage is vital in these situations to manage and prevent irreparable harm to structural elements, contents, and occupants in the home.

What Are Signs Your Plumbing Fixtures Are Causing Water Damages?

Identifying potential water leaks from plumbing and fixtures of this service can be vital to know when water damage remediation is necessary. Beyond physically experiencing damp and moist areas of your home, there are other clear indicators that a problem might exist worth investigating. Persistent water leaks from fixtures and connections can damage structural and fixture elements like vanities, cabinetry, wall systems, and flooring. Some of the indicators that a plumbing leak might exist include lower water pressure, a larger water bill from your provider, an odor that you cannot identify, or inexplicable staining on wall and ceiling surfaces.

Once you know that a problem might exist, our SERVPRO professionals can work with moisture detection equipment like thermal imagery and hygrometers to begin searching for damp pockets and hidden moisture caches. Tracking the movement and placement of moisture allows most to limit controlled demolition required to access structural cavities and dry them appropriately.

How Is SERVPRO Ready to Help?

Preparedness is one of the greatest strengths of our SERVPRO team. We understand that every minute counts when water disasters occur, making it vital to mobilize fast in these situations to begin emergency services water damage—efforts like extraction and water removal from materials like carpeting or hardwood care providers unnecessary reconstruction and repairs. Many rely on this fast response to get mitigation efforts started within the first few hours after notifying our staffed emergency line.

The experience of our professionals in this situation is also a selling point for choosing SERVPRO of East Naples.

Efficient Water Cleanup for Naples Homes

Water Damage Restoration in Naples, a thriving community.

When you consider the upscale living of many in Golden Gate in the Naples area you might not realize the scale that this community was initially meant to achieve. While having a substantial 24,000 residents, this total pales in comparison to the original projections of a city offering premium homes on large land lots to half a million. Despite a smaller size, the community continues to grow and thrive, bringing in many businesses with the town limits and providing a range of restaurants, cultures, and beliefs to central coastal Florida. With all of Collier County providing a home to more than 320,000 people, along with a steady flow of tourists and travelers, a fast response to water disasters is critical to preserving residences and high-rises along the coast.  

The Efficient Water Leak and Damage Cleanup Solutions  SERVPRO Provides  

Cleaning and drying up water leaks and damages can be critical to protecting some of the Naples Golden Gate community's high-end homes. As a part of the Greater Naples area, this region can often get reached within hours of the first notice of loss by our competent restoration professionals. With both water mitigation and cleanup needs that exist immediately in an emergency, the pace that technicians reach the home can impact structural elements and contents' salvageability.  

After water leaks or water damages, cleaning up involves removing standing water but hinges most considerably on eliminating moisture trapped in building materials and personal belongings. Saturation can lead to the deterioration of exposed elements, making drying a vital action as soon as our team first arrives. The foundational tools used in evaporative drying and moisture removal include air movers and dehumidifiers. Reducing tear-out and reconstruction means identifying any lingering moisture pockets before this water exposure and saturation becomes too overwhelming. Multiple devices can be beneficial in this assessment and evaluation of the property, including:

  • Water Damages
  • Cost of Water Damage Restoration
  • Water and Mold Damage Checks
  • Probing moisture detectors

Water damage cleanup in Golden Gate homes can be costly when any property owner waits longer than necessary to get restoration professionals involved. With layers of mitigative tasks possible to reduce out-of-pocket expenses and to prevent irreparable damage, we have talented technicians trained to make losses "Like it never even happened." With both Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and a division of building contractors, our SERVPRO of East Naples team can help however you need when you call (239) 259-9119.

How Did the Dream of Golden Gate Begin? 

Much like many of the developments and projects of the mid 20th century, investors were sold a dream that they could not yet experience. Many potential homeowners and buyers were enticed to purchase newly drained marshland to get their stake in the 'City of the Future.' In truth, the 1960s would see many people buying property that was neither able to be developed nor had they seen, shrinking these 111,000 acres projected initially to little more than 4 square miles that it is today.

The Line Between the North and South

Despite the vision of becoming a haven for more than 500,000 residents, Golden Gate would only see a fraction of this potential with the development of the north portion with the bulk of the 24,000 total residents. As a densely populated portion of land with more than 6,000 occupants per square mile, the community can appear more alive and bustling.

The southern portion of the Golden Gate community, separated by Interstate 75, is home to much fewer people. Some of this region is still much wilder than the more developed counterpart to the north. Because of being underdeveloped beyond the initial projections, the area has become a living specimen towards groups like Save our Everglades looking to protect natural wildlife and scenery that has been threatened by construction.

Growing a Community from the Marshlands 

The northern portion of Golden Gate is growing and thriving over the years, from investors' earliest developments back in the 1960s through the more recent booms in population in the 1990s and first two decades of the new millennium. In direct response to the rising number of residents, businesses have found successes in both Golden Gate and the space between this community and nearby Naples. With more than 25 restaurants in the immediate area ranging from barbeque to Greek and Chinese, the cuisine represents the property owners' diversity.

A growing community needs specific amenities, and the municipal leaders have seen to these developments for the enrichment of the residents. From the Golden Gate Community Center with meeting rooms and a skate park to the Golden Gate Library on Lucerne, education and entertainment are also growing commodities for the town.

The Allures of Nearby Naples 

One of the attractive features of how Golden Gate is positioned, beyond its proximity to the Everglades, is nearby Naples. While the Golden Gate community is home to roughly 24,000, Naples is considered one of the anchor cities of Collier County despite only having a population of nearly 20,000. As the proclaimed 'Golf Capital of the World,' Naples features more than 80 championship-level golf courses and many attractions that can draw in visitors and those looking to find a place to settle down on the Gulf Coast.

Shopping plays a significant role in the Naples-Marco Island region's attractiveness, which has led to the development of multiple outlet malls and open-air markets. The most noteworthy of these being the Coastland Center or the Waterside Shops with upscale retail options like Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Tin City is a district of Naples specific to specialty retail experiences like handmade crafts or antiques.

Naples also features a renowned stretch of beach labeled as the best in the country by the Travel Channel in 2005. This ten-mile stretch of white sand beaches features multiple shops, condos, and other experiences that you can only find here, ranging from the businesses near the Naples Pier to the vast expanses of sand on Vanderbilt or Seagate Beach.SERVPRO of East Naples
