Why SERVPRO Is The Leading Restoration Service For Residents Of Orlando, Florida

Genuine, local experience is a vital commodity in home restoration services. What works in one home may not be as effective in your Orlando home due to architectural differences, needs, and construction materials. As a locally owned and operated company, we know what works as well as what does not, so we can adopt a tailored approach to your property emergency using our experience and our expertise in equal measure. SERVPRO of Apopka-Wekiva is a restoration service with a proven track record in returning local residences to their preloss condition after water, fire, mold, or storm-related disasters.

Classifying a property with fire damage in Orlando does not merely cover combustion, but also soots, smoke deposits and odor control. Forgetting to open your flue can require a fire restoration technician (FRT) to restore the damages, just as an actual kitchen fire requires one. SERVPRO offers local technicians who understand the unique architecture of your home and can put in place a solid gameplan to restore your home on-time in a stress-free way.

Different properties require different fire restoration services. SERVPRO technicians are trained to conduct a pre-test of your home to make sure the procedure we adopt is going to have the correct outcome. This test may require furniture to be removed or some appliances to be dismantled. Your heating HVAC unit (ventilation and air conditioning) unit need to be inspected for damages as well as attic spaces or exterior walls in your Orlando home.

Making sure that all soiling is adequately removed plays a central role in ensuring odors are kept under control. SERVPRO technicians can refer back to the results of their pre-test to ensure that fabrics or upholstery do not suffer further damage during the cleaning process. Exterior brickwork can be pressure washed to avoid outdoor smoke odors returning to the interior of the home. By combining our experience and know-how with a tailored pre-test, we can make sure that your home has its best chance of completing a full recovery after a fire.

Washrooms are a common area where water damage to your Orlando home may be an issue. Typical tiled flooring and the sealant beneath it can wear or crack with persistent exposure to moisture. These issues can often go unnoticed until paintwork begins to peel on the below ceiling or unpleasant odors arise. SERVPRO water restoration technicians are available to help trace the extent of damage and take action to prevent it from becoming an issue.

There may be some scenarios where tiling must be removed to access the floor below and dry the affected area. However, the situation is complicated by visual barriers that make it impossible to get a full picture of the extent of the damage. Using thermal imaging cameras, SERVPRO technicians can find hidden moisture pockets and avoid removing tiles that do not need removing. In a minor scale water incident, we can place drying mats directly onto tiles and extract water from below. If we do need to take out tiling, you can rest assured we do replace them, just as they were before the water incident.

It is not always possible to restore your Orlando home without any lasting issues. Sometimes, you might need to enlist the help of a contractor to repair plumbing or structural issues. SERVPRO can leverage trusted contacts in the industry and work with them on your behalf to provide these services, so you only have to deal with one company throughout. Our technicians are used to providing transparent restoration services, and we end every service by conducting a walkthrough with you, the homeowner, to explain issues and outcomes.

Microbial infestations can build up in less-used regions of your Orlando home. Storage spaces are particularly vulnerable with typically less protection from outer elements than in your living spaces. These hidden damages can be distressing for a homeowner who has stored away valuable items or clothing only to find it severely impaired by a microbial growth issue. SERVPRO mold remediation technicians work with a restore over replace mentality that could help us to salvage some, if not all, of your precious items.

The discovery of mold damage in your Orlando home should drive you to enlist professional help immediately. Some items that may appear non-salvageable can be given special treatment that restores them to a preloss condition. SERVPRO Esporta washing machines are capable of removing up to 99% of soiling and stains, while our ultrasonic immersion cleaning equipment is exceptionally useful on denser items like precious metals or jewelry.

We can clean items on-site before packing them up to an external storage facility for further restoration services. Damages to walls or structure generally respond well to disinfectants and agitative cleaning methods. However, the necessary procedure is to shut off the source of water. Slow leaks, gaps in a structure, or damp spots are the usual culprits for mold growth. By accessing these areas, we can prevent mold issues from recurring over and over, allowing us to complete the job on-time while assuring the homeowner that all preventative measures against recurring damages have been carried out.

In case of a flood, owners need a restoration service they can reach out to at any time of day. At SERVPRO, we operate our emergency call lines round the clock to provide residents in this community with solutions to storm damage in Orlando. Leaving a flooded property overnight can intensify the level of harm to contents and structure with moisture migrating from the primary source throughout the home. Our restorers are available on-call to perform vital mitigation tasks in your Orlando property.

The immediate task for a SERVPRO restorer is to reduce standing water levels as quickly as possible. Using gas-powered pumping equipment, we can withdraw water of all contamination levels to a nearby open sewer point. These pumps are fully-submersible and active until the standing water level drops below two inches. We can then set to work discarding solid waste, debris, or non-salvageable materials.

Extracting standing water does not solve the problem completely; there is still work to do. SERVPRO technicians can mobilize truck-mounted extraction equipment to vacuum moisture from home up to 1,200 times faster than using dehumidification equipment. During this process, we can clean stains to furnishings as well as float carpets to ensure floors are properly dry inside and out. At the end of service, our technicians can forward the paperwork to your insurance adjuster for a stress-free claim procedure.

SERVPRO of Apopka-Wekiva is a local company with access to national-level resources. We operate restoration services for the recovery of storm, fire, water, and mold-related property incidents. Contact us anytime at (407) 788-3124 today.
