The single most important thing that any property owner should do when noticing water rush into their business, that may lead to flood damage can do is to call in their local professional water damage restoration company.

Also, they will have trained and experienced staff, with tens of thousands of hours between them of successfully carrying out the restoration and mitigation of water damage.

Spring Cleaning

3/27/2017 (Permalink)

A new season has just arrived in Lakeland, FL and it offers an opportunity to refresh your restaurant. Winter months normally mean windows stay shut, and dirt and grime from boots and heavy shoes gets tracked onto the floor. Similar to how people look forward to spring cleaning at home, you can do the same for your restaurant. SERVPRO of Lakeland offers plenty of services that can help your business start the season fresh!


 


Clean Your Air Ducts and HVAC


 


Your air ducts and HVAC unit work hard throughout the winter to keep your customers and employees warm. The ventilation system should be properly cleaned in the spring to make sure the air quality in your restaurant is not poor. If it has not been serviced for some time, your air could be circulating dust, pollen, odors and dirt and debris. Our technicians and equipment can clean out your system and make sure everyone breathes easier in the new season.


 


Kitchen Cleaning


 


Checking the hoods in the kitchen is usually a twice a year job, so what better time to start than for spring cleaning. Cleaning the pilots lights (if it is gas) is also a good idea. Just make sure to follow manufacturer’s instructions. Empty and sanitize the ice machine, and wipe down walls, ceilings and dry storage areas. SERVPRO of Lakeland offers great commercial cleaning options as well, so give us a call if there are items you want professionals to fix.


 


Rugs and Carpets


 


If your restaurant uses rugs or carpet, springtime is a great time to freshen them as well. If the furniture in your restaurant does not often move, tracks from normal foot traffic can start to wear down your rugs or carpets. When they become matted, these items also hold in an abundance of dust and debris that is carried in on shoes. A proper cleaning will get rid of the smells and the dust!


 



SERVPRO of Lakeland is only a phone call away if you need a professional to help freshen up your restaurant for spring. Get in contact today! (863)646-4213.

Rapid Response Recovery Time

Why should I choose a professional restoration company for water intrusion/ damage?

  • Homeowners should not risk doing the work themselves as there may hidden water or moisture that can go undetected to the untrained eye. Taking into account that mold growth can occur in as little as 24-48 hours in the presence of moisture, undetected water damage can pose long term problems if not properly handled.
  • Due to the potential hazards associated with water-related damage, moisture and water should be handled by properly trained and equipped professionals to ensure complete and necessary drying to prevent future harm, extensive structural damage and possible contamination.
  • Improper cleanup could hinder property re-sale value.
  • Professional restoration companies have essential tools and techniques to measure moisture in the area to ensure proper and complete drying in a timely manner.
  • Water technicians should be fully aware of water or moisture-related characteristics to locate leaks or water damaged areas that may otherwise go unnoticed.
  • Homes and other properties are large and often expensive assets. Why run the risks associated with improper drying, deodorizing and disinfecting which can lead to potential secondary structural damage? Help protect your property’s value by calling the professionals at SERVPRO of Lakeland.

Why should I choose SERVPRO of Lakeland for water cleanup and restoration?

  • SERVPRO of Lakeland recognizes the necessity for prompt and accurate response and offer 1-4-8 Response Guidelines to help minimize additional, secondary or permanent damage and contamination. In addition, SERVPRO of Lakeland is available for emergency response 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • Knowledge and training are key elements in effective water removal and moisture damage. SERVPRO of Lakeland applies their industry knowledge, training and understanding of how relative humidity, temperature, vapor pressure and air movement influence drying conditions.
  • Powerful and professional equipment is essential for proper mitigation and efficient restoration of water damaged areas. SERVPRO of Lakeland is outfitted with state-of-the-art industrial grade equipment and products to measure the extent of moisture saturation and offer proper drying, deodorizing and disinfecting of water damaged areas.
  • SERVPRO of Lakeland offers content restoration to restore water damaged contents and personal belongings. Often when water damage occurs, personal possessions are also damaged by moisture. SERVPRO Technicians work diligently to try and return personal contents to preloss conditions.

Rising from the Ashes

A Long-Awaited Grand Re-Opening

 

This particular story is very near and dear to us here at SERVPRO of Lakeland. Last year this franchise and one of our clients went through an extremely harrowing ordeal. A local retirment community suffered a fire in the middle of the night in a resident's apartment. In addition to local fire and police departments, SERVPRO was on site within the hour. 

None of us were quite prepared mentally for the toll this job would take both on the residents of this community and the amazing ownership team. The damage both from the fire and the ensuing deluge to put out the fire was extensive. It traveled for 4 floors before it was contained.

Fast forward to this past week. We were invited back by this retirement community for its Grand Re-opening. Through countless hours of labor by the local fire department and SERVPRO of Lakeland, followed by many weeks of construction and repair, we were able to truly make it "Like it never even happened."

The transformation was nothing short of breathtaking. Even better than that, however, was the warm welcome we received from both the residents of the community and its incredible staff. The gratitude they expressed towards our team is something we will not soon forget.

That is why we do it. If you should experience some kind of disaster to your home or place of business, call SERVPRO of Lakeland today. (863)646-4213.

Fast Response to Water Damage in Commercial Complex

Commercial Fast Response to Water Damage in Commercial Complex Commercial Storm Damage Response by SERVPRO of Lakeland

Just two days before Thanksgiving the students at Florida Southern College were preparing to attend their final classes before their break, when an unusual downpour started. There was an abnormal amount of rain dropped on the campus of Florida Southern College between the hours of 9 and 10 am. 

Our crews arrived on site within the 20 minutes of the call and began extracting water from their art and science buildings, as well as their main performing hall Branscomb Auditorium. Our crews acted with swiftness and determination and were able to use all of the tools at our disposal to have much of the water extracted by the end of business that day.

That was the easy part. Now came the hard part, bringing enough equipment and manpower to have every wet area of these buildings dry by the time the students arrived back on campus for class on Monday, and to make matters worse it is a holiday weekend and most of our crew was scheduled to be out of town or had plans with their families. After exhausting our inventory of drying equipment and borrowing some equipment from other SERVPRO franchises we were able to have most of the fans and dehumidifiers set by the time we left campus that night. 

Now the monitoring and waiting game began. Over Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, and through the weekend two of our staff members showed up on the campus to monitor and remove, or reposition, equipment until the campus was dry on Sunday evening. Monday when the staff and students arrived at their first class they had no inclination that we were ever there or there was water flowing in to the classrooms just 6 days before. We truly did make it “like it never even happened”.

This job marked the largest single commercial water loss SERVPRO of Lakeland has ever handled on its own, and we will continue to grow and learn, making it true that there is no job too big or too small for SERVPRO. 

SERVPRO of Lakeland specializes in:  water remediation, flood mitigation, carpet cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, mold removal, fire damage, and smoke clean up, disaster restoration, storm response, and air duct cleaning. SERVPRO of Lakeland has been serving Lakeland and Polk County residents for over 40 years. We are licensed and insured and have an A+ rating with the better business bureau in restoration and cleaning.

Recently the SERVPRO of Lakeland Team attended a large loss conference in Orlando. This meeting was very constructive for our team as it gave us more knowledge and tools to work with in the event of a large-scale water or fire damage in Lakeland or Polk County. At the meeting we made some key connections with the southeast large loss team based out of Nashville, TN. This connection is very important, because we now have the ability to make one phone call and have a semi truck full of equipment and manpower in town, within 24 hours. Situations like this would include multiple levels of flooding in large buildings, such as a hotel flood, courthouse water loss, or large commercial real estate building leaks. It could also include multi unit housing structure losses, such as apartment complexes or condo associations. In situations like this, time is of the utmost importance. While we here at SERVPRO of Lakeland we have the ability to deal with many disasters on our own, we may not have the equipment necessary to complete the drying process after our initial 24-hour water extraction period. This is why it is so important to have the ability to get equipment and manpower within 24 hours of the loss, to assist with phases two and three, the drying and demolition. Our new arrangement with our Large Loss partner should make any large building owner or manager feel at ease, knowing that not only is SERVPRO of Lakeland here to assist, but we also have the backing of our other 1600 franchises and large loss response unit. Be sure to call Josh to find out about things you can do to make sure the commercial building you own or manage is ready in time of disaster at (863) 646-4213.
