Recovering from Hurricane Sally

1/25/2021 (Permalink)

Ceiling Boards affected by mold in Pensacola, Florida Has mold taken hold in your home or business? Call SERVPRO of North Pensacola for help!

Our community all too recently experienced what a severe tropical system can do with Hurricane Sally.  Many properties were damaged by recording breaking flood waters and elevated winds.  SERVPRO of North Pensacola has taken great pride in helping our community to recover from this storm event and continues to work tirelessly every day to remediate the damages throughout Pensacola, Cantonment, and surrounding areas.

As many properties are currently being restored to their pre-storm condition, another source of damage from Hurricane Sally may still linger: MOLD! The combination of organic matter and moisture creates the perfect environment for mold formation, and in humid climates, this mold growth can spread rapidly throughout a structure.    Proper drying of materials after a water damage has occurred is imperative to lessen the probability of mold growth, however, after a flood inducing storm like Hurricane Sally, this is often a tough feat to accomplish.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola is Here to Help if mold has taken hold in your home or business.  Our team has the credentials, experience, and equipment to remediate mold losses throughout the state of Florida.  We also have a reconstruction division, providing a one-stop-shop for your mitigation, remediation, and reconstruction needs.  To learn more about our services, please give us a call at 850-466-3076, “We’re faster to any size disaster!”

A mullioned window is shown with rainwater drops covering the glass. SERVPRO of North Pensacola is Here To Help.

When it rains, you know where the leaks are!

The hurricane season comes and goes, and then nicer weather arrives in December in Bohemia. I always make a mental note to fix the leaking window seals and door frames, but sometimes I don’t remember to do my inspection until it rains again, and then I remember! The last time it rained, I went downstairs and saw that the back door was leaking, and water was seeping underneath the door frame. When I looked closer, I saw that the wooden door frame was rotting and sagging, and the water damages extended underneath the carpeting and had saturated the subfloor.

Skunked in Ferry Pass?

A skunk is shown lifting his tail, ready to spray a threatening, unknown source. We have odor removal down to a science in Pensacola!

Smelly critters in Ferry Pass?

Two species of skunks that inhabit Florida: the striped skunk and the spotted skunk. Both are nocturnal and are primarily solitary creatures. They are known to like porches. One night I opened the back door of my Ferry Pass restaurant to take out the garbage and was greeted by a tiny baby skunk standing sideways to make himself look bigger, and he had his tiny tail up and was trying to spray me with all his might! I slammed the door before he could get me, but there was still a powerful skunk odor that permeated the entire restaurant. Thankfully the restaurant was closed. I called  SERVPRO® of North Pensacola, and they came out right away and removed the skunk odor without a trace!

SERVPRO technicians are on call 24 hours a day and have the training and experience, and equipment necessary to identify and eliminate offensive odors. Our technicians never use shortcuts or mask odors, they use odor removal products that penetrate surfaces and thoroughly remove them.

Gas Station Damage in Yniestra?

11/16/2020 (Permalink)

A gas station and convenience store are serving customers late at night.  We respond to commercial property damage emergencies 24 hours a day in North Pensacola.

Every Second Counts

One night, while I was working the late shift in Yniestra, a group of teenage boys drove in to get gas. One of their tires was low so I directed them to the air compressor. Just as he was finished putting air in his tire, a group of cute teenage girls drove in to get gas. The guy adding air to his tire noticed the girls. He got back into his car, revved his engine to get the girls attention, and punched the gas. Unfortunately, the poor kid had the car in “reverse” and drove right into the back of the store, busting up the door and breaking some windows. I suppose that’s one way to impress the girls, but probably wasn’t his intention!
