When The Waters Rise...

Before and After photos of water damaged commercial property We are here to help with your commercial project needs. As always, it is our pleasure to serve you!

During storm surge, do you know what happens to your office?  Maybe the grass gets soggy, or maybe your computer mouse is squealing for a life raft while singing “Ride, Sally, Ride!”

SERVPRO of North Pensacola recently assisted local businesses affected by rising water from Hurricane Sally.  We were called in after the water receded to evaluate the contents and structures of several bayside occupants.

As you can see, this office received “the works” from our dedicated crews.  Even though the floor was well above normal water levels, water infiltrated the building creating havoc on the lower walls, contents, and floors.  We initialized environmental stabilization while we evaluated and processed salvageable contents.  Once the building was empty, the fun began!  The crews did a 2-foot flood cut to expose the inner wall cavities, removed the flooring, bio-washed the remaining affected materials, applied an EPA registered antimicrobial, and dried to EMC. 

What is EMC?.... Call us and let’s discuss!  We are here to help with your commercial project needs.  As always, it is our pleasure to serve you!

Recovering from Hurricane Sally

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.

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?

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!

It’s normal to be scared of loud noises, strange aromas, and other storm attributes. This fear becomes a phobia only when the reactions are extreme.

If a phobic pet causes major damage, or a storm floods the house, call SERVPRO of North Pensacola at (850) 466-3076 any time. Emergency service is available 24/7/365.

SERVPRO® of North Pensacola put together information about astraphobia in dogs and cats so pet lovers can help their furry companions endure the storms.

What Happens

Cats and dogs are among the many animals that feel the change in barometric pressure before a storm. Longer-haired animals may also feel static electricity charges. The flashes of lightning and the sound of thunder upset many animals.

What to Do

If the pets spend time outdoors, make sure they can get inside. They should have identification in case they get lost.

If the pet wants to hide in a safe place, that’s good for everyone. Dogs that become so anxious they hurt property or themselves should be in crates – preferably one on which they can’t break teeth. Make sure your pet is crate-trained before a storm.

Some animals feel less anxiety if they are wrapped up in a special shirt or blanket. Others may need medication.

Animal trainers can condition pets to be calmer during thunderstorms.

Lightning Damage in Molino?

7/27/2020 (Permalink)

We deal with storm damage of all kinds in Pensacola.

How Lightning Forms

Did you know that lightning is the second highest cause of death by severe weather in the United States, and that lightning strikes are more deadly than hurricanes or tornadoes? Summer thunderstorms are common in Florida and most lightning flashes start inside the cloud. If the lightning is going to strike the ground it will form a channel pointing downwards inside the cloud toward the surface. When it gets close enough, roughly a hundred yards from the ground, trees and bushes start sending sparks up to meet the electricity in the cloud. When a spark from the tree or bush connects with the electrical energy in the cloud it causes the electrical current to surge rapidly down the channel to the object that sent the spark. SERVPRO® of North Pensacola has years of experience providing storm damage cleanup and restoration services in Molino and is ready to respond to any size emergency.

Call Us Today

If lightning causes damage to your home or commercial business, SERVPRO® of North Pensacola is Here to Help. ® We have a team of highly trained technicians ready to respond to your call 24 hours a day and we can be onsite to immediately begin the repair process within four hours. Call us today at 850-466-3076. We’ll restore your storm damage in Molino “Like it never even happened.”

Water damage can happen at any time in Pensacola.

Hidden Water Damage Can Occur at Anytime

A client of mine was at home in Quintette due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus and decided that cleaning out all the closets and cabinets would be a good use of her time.

Water Damage Emergencies Happen

As she reached into the back of the cabinet next to her washer and dryer in her laundry room, she felt damp towels and puddles of water.

Water damage can happen at any time in Cottage Hill.

Water damage can occur at any time. SERVPRO® of North Pensacola wants commercial and residential property owners in Cottage Hill to know that water damage in commercial buildings and residences can not only be unsanitary, it can also be dangerous as items that are not thoroughly dried out can cause mold. Here are some tips from the American Red Cross  to follow in the event of water damage to your business or home:

  • Pump out flooded basements gradually (about one-third of the water per day) to avoid structural damage.

  • Throw out items that have absorbed water and cannot be cleaned or disinfected
  • Remove all drywall and insulation that has been in contact with floodwaters
  • Consider removing vinyl floor coverings and tile to allow the substructures beneath or behind them to dry
  • Keep the windows open and run fans – or keep them shut and run dehumidifiers to pull moisture out of wood floors and subfloors, beams, doors, etc.

Breaking the Hold of Mold in Molino

1/30/2020 (Permalink)

Don't allow mold to take over your life.

It is impossible to entirely eliminate mold from the planet, so the best we can do is keep mold from growing. It starts as a tiny spore, but the spores are too small to see, and too tough to kill. We can get rid of growing mold because it is visible, and we can control the moisture it needs to grow.

If a home- or business-owner in or around Molino suspects or sees water damage, the person should expect mold. Call SERVPRO® of North Pensacola at 850-466-3076 or send a message online. SERVPRO is available 24/7 without exception.

Why hurry? Why SERVPRO of North Pensacola?
• Mold can start growing between 24-28 hours after exposure to moisture, so if we can deprive it of moisture earlier, the spores will not grow
• To prevent further problems, we are Faster to any size disaster
• SERVPRO has the right equipment
• The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that homeowners who attempt to mitigate mold do so only if it covers a small area
• The EPA requires business owners to hire professionals
• If the spores land inside a wall that is not completely dry, the mold grows
• Substances that kill growing mold are harsh enough that people need to wear personal protective equipment (PPE)
• Ignoring the mold will not make it go away
? Mold grows only on surfaces that it can consume, which means the mold will destroy whatever it lives on
? The more mold there is, the more it can grow
? It is smelly
? It is unsightly
? It may trigger allergies or other problems

SERVPRO of North Pensacola will make the area look “Like it never even happened.”

Avoid Commercial Fire Damage in Your Pensacola Office

10/15/2019 (Permalink)

Have a fire extinguisher within easy reach in your Pensacola office.

Office fires in Pensacola are more common than you might think. This is why it is important to have a fire extinguisher in your office at all times. SERVPRO of North Pensacola reminds you that fires can start from something as simple as a short in a wire or something inside of a microwave catching fire.

Local fire departments are usually happy to help with this training, and they can provide some real-life examples of ways to practice fire safety.

If your break room (or any other area of your office building) catches on fire, you will likely have smoke damage as well as damage from the fire. That is where SERVPRO of North Pensacola comes in.

Thunderstorm preparedness in Gaberonne

9/27/2019 (Permalink)

Although you cannot prevent thunderstorms, you can prepare for them.

Thunderstorms are beautiful, but they can also be dangerous.  In most places, a thunderstorm can happen at any time of the year and any time of the day. They can cause severe damage to your home, business, or property in Gaberonne.

Thunderstorms can include lightning and can:

  • Include winds over 50 MPH
  • Create hail
  • Cause flash floods
  • Cause tornadoes

SERVPRO® of North Pensacola knows you cannot prevent a thunderstorm, but being prepared for one can minimize the damage:

  • Know the risk for thunderstorms in Gaberonne
  • Sign up for your community’s warning system
  • Cut down or trim trees that may fall on your home or office
  • Install surge protectors, lightning rods, or a lightning protection system

SERVPRO of North Pensacola knows you do not need to wait for the thunder.

If there is a thunderstorm warning, go inside. Once there:

  • Unplug appliances
  • Do not use landline phones in office or home
  • Pay attention to alerts and warnings

If you can’t get inside a building:

  • If you are swimming or in a boat, get to land immediately. Find shelter
  • If you are in a car, don’t touch anything metal
  • Avoid flooded roads. 6 inches of moving water can knock you down. One foot of moving water can sweep away your car.

A lightning strike during a thunderstorm can leave a wake of destruction in its path. This can range from minor electrical issues to fire damage. Lightning is also a major cause of injury or death from weather-related dangers.

Commercial lighting equipment safety information for Goulding

9/20/2019 (Permalink)

Office lighting is the second most common cause of commercial fires – stay safe in Goulding.

One of the most common causes of commercial fires is electrical and lighting equipment, according to the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association.) This type of fire is not easily foreseen, as the lighting equipment can appear fine on the outside of your Goulding business. SERVPRO® of North Pensacola wants to share the following information about commercial fires and how safety equipment helps to lessen the damage and assists in preventing any bodily injury:

  • Wet pipe sprinklers installed in the ceilings of commercial buildings are very effective in helping to fight fire(s)
  • Building sprinklers should be examined and tested every five years
  • There should always be a fire extinguisher in reach inside of a commercial building and they must be checked annually to ensure they are in working order
  • If an office building is on fire, exit the building immediately. Do not try to fight the fire yourself
  • If there is a lot of smoke inside the building, cover your mouth and nose and do your best to not inhale any of it

In the unfortunate event that a commercial building does catch fire in Goulding, rest assured that SERVPRO of North Pensacola is prepared to help clean up any fire damage the building/area has sustained.

Tips for Staying Safe During a Molino Storm in an Office Building

9/18/2019 (Permalink)

Stay away from windows during a lightning storm in Molino, Florida.

Common safety rules and precautions state that the public should generally try to stay inside of a safe area or building when a lightning storm or thunderstorms occur. There are many commercial buildings in Molino. SERVPRO® of North Pensacola wants to share the following safety tips for staying safe during a thunderstorm while inside of a commercial building:

  • Stay away from all windows or glass walls, especially during a lightning storm
  • Unplug appliances if possible
  • Pay attention to all alerts and warnings, as a thunderstorm can develop into a tornado if powerful enough
  • Avoid running water if possible since electricity can travel through plumbing

Weather is unpredictable. Although weather can be predicted, it can also change in an instant without much warning. If a thunderstorm does happen to turn into tornado weather in Molino, consider the following tips:

  • If the commercial building has a basement or storm cellar, head there immediately
  • Use your arms to protect your head and neck in the event of flying debris or shattered windows
  • Do not leave the safe area until the local alerting system says it is safe to do so

Remember, SERVPRO of North Pensacola is here to help. Our trained team members will show up ready to go and can assist in cleanup and restoration after a thunderstorm, lightning storm and even a tornado.

OSHA Guidelines for Fire Extinguisher Usage in Yniestra

9/18/2019 (Permalink)

Keep your Yniestra business safer with the knowledge of how to use a fire extinguisher.

SERVPRO® of North Pensacola knows that owning a fire extinguisher is not enough. Knowing the proper use of fire extinguishers can prevent fire from destroying lives in Yniestra.

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) requires that employers train their employees how and when to use fire extinguishers. OSHA does not allow untrained employees to use a fire extinguisher.  They must provide the training shortly after the employee is hired, and then every year thereafter. OSHA also requires monthly inspections for fire extinguishers.

Fire extinguishers have to be placed where they cannot be moved or damaged. The carrying handle should be 3-1/2 to 5 feet above the floor.

Employees must know when to use fire extinguishers.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola suggests asking yourself these questions regarding fire extinguishers in your Yniestra business: 

  • Have I pulled the fire alarm?
  • Can everyone get out?
  • Is the fire extinguisher easy to reach?
  • Do I know how to use it?
  • Is the fire contained in a small area?
  • Is the smoke non-toxic?
  • Do I have an escape route?

If you can answer “yes” to all of the questions, it is reasonable to use the fire extinguisher.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola reminds you that fire is fast. If you cannot contain it within 30 seconds, get everyone out of the area. Call 9-1-1 once you are outside.

When the Waters Recede in Pensacola

9/12/2019 (Permalink)

Water damage is not always easy to spot.

Even though the phrase “what you don’t know won’t hurt you” exists, it is not always true. Sometimes what you don’t know can and will hurt you in Pensacola. After storms damage our property, many times we cannot see the whole picture to know what all is really damaged? From hidden foundation compromises to the beginning stages of mold growth behind the wallpaper, costs can begin to mount quickly and before you know it, you are in the middle of a spending spree that you never expected. After the waters recede and the damage becomes visible, homeowners are often left overwhelmed with the stresses associated with insurance claims and subcontractor costs and errors. Hurricane and storm damage can happen when you least expect it. Water can come flooding into your home or office and leave a mess behind.

When nature throws you a curve-ball, it doesn’t take a psychic to see you need relief. If or when this happens to you, call SERVPRO of North Pensacola and in a short amount of time, a friendly crew of professional cleanup and restoration personnel will quickly assess the damage and start the process of making your disaster look “Like it never even happened.”

When storms are brewing, SERVPRO of North Pensacola will be there.

When storms are brewing, we may not think destruction is headed our way but sometimes the inevitable happens in Ferry Pass. While storms can be beautiful, they can turn deadly in just moments. Being prepared will help minimize harm to people and bring less damage to your property. If you find yourself in the aftermath of a storm, let SERVPRO of North Pensacola turn your chaos back to normal.

  • Board up windows and doors ahead of time, if possible
  • Secure loose items
  • Have an emergency kit ready including non-perishable foods and water
  • Make a plan ahead of time so your family will know what to do

Your local meteorologists will monitor the weather conditions in your area keeping you informed on what type of storm is happening. A storm Watch indicates they are watching for formations of specific types (flooding, severe thunderstorms, hail, tornadoes, etc.)  A storm Warning means there are property and life-threatening conditions occurring so you should take precautions.

Flooding can happen at any time, but SERVPRO is "Ready for whatever happens."

When this happens, SERVPRO of North Pensacola knows how quickly mold can begin to grow adding yet another problem to this already unwelcome disaster in your Goulding home or office. Attacking this problem without professional help can become tedious and possibly dangerous.  When your home and/or business are affected by water damage, it is critical to act immediately to minimize cost and inconvenience.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola is ready to help if you need us, but we also want you to be prepared. If you notice a roof leak, you could try to make a temporary leak patch using something like plywood and some roofing tar, but if you still have a leak and want to call the professionals, we are ready and able to tarp your roof to get through the storm. After the weather has cleared, we can return to repair both the roof and any damage you experienced from excess water.

Don’t let storms in Gaberonne get you down. SERVPRO is “ready for whatever happens.®”

Staying Healthy around Standing Water Ferry Pass

9/5/2019 (Permalink)

Protect your health around standing waters.

Floods can cause standing water in Ferry Pass creating the possibility of different types of disease. Even small puddles can pose a risk.

Some types of debris found in flood waters include dead animals, sewage, and rotted plants. Inside the home, you should watch for debris involving rotted food and electrical problems.

Viruses and bacteria can cause illnesses. To reduce your chances of catching something, SERVPRO of East Naples suggests:

  • Remember that you can shake hands with an infected person and get infected.
  • Wash children’s hands before meals
  • Use bleach or other disinfectants on hard surfaces
  • Keep your hands washed
  • Do not allow children to play in the flood water
  • Using bleach if possible, wash clothing and towels in hot water
  • Disinfect children’s toys before allowing them to play with them

Cuts and rashes can become infected. Protect yourself and others in Ferry Pass:

  • Avoid flood waters if you have an open rash or a cut

Remediating Mold in Gonzales

9/5/2019 (Permalink)

Don’t let mold take over your home or business.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola understands that even a tiny bit of moisture can lead to mold growing in drywall.  You may not be able to see the mold growing but it is causing damage and the sooner you get rid of it, the less damage it can cause to your Gonzales home or business.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has ruled that only licensed professionals can clean any surface that has more than 10 square feet of mold. The EPA cannot know how you take care of your home or business, but you will need an inspection if you want to sell.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola is licensed in mold remediation.

Mold remediation means getting rid of the mold spores that become mold as well as fixing the root cause of the dampness.

Mold:

  • Can begin growing on damp surfaces within 24 hours
  • Grows from tiny spores that travel through the air
  • Can destroy materials they grow on
  • Can spread and destroy adjacent materials

SERVPRO of North Pensacola can:

  • Find the source of the moisture
  • Stop the moisture problem
  • Remove the drywall
  • Disinfect certain surfaces

Smoke Detectors can Save Lives in Cottage Hill

9/4/2019 (Permalink)

By installing a fire alarm in your home, you can lower your risk of being harmed in the event a fire breaks out in your Cottage Hill home.

Fire spreads fast once it is started so SERVPRO of North Pensacola wants to remind you that smoke detectors (smoke alarms) can help save lives in your Cottage Hill home.

An alarm alerts you that danger is present giving you time to get out.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola wants you to remember:

  • Closed doors can slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. That is good for reducing smoke damage and fire damage. That is also why you should have a smoke alarm in every sleeping room in the home
  • Install smoke alarms on every level of the home
  • Large homes might need extra smoke alarms
  • Some companies make alarms that are interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound
  • Do not turn off smoke detectors when cooking
  • Test the smoke alarms at least once a month. There is a test button on the alarm
  • When the alarm sounds, get everyone outside and stay outside
  • Replace all smoke alarms every 10 years

If your Cottage Hill home is not properly protected by a smoke detector, please install one. If you experience a fire, immediately vacate the home and then contact your fire department once you are outside the home.

Tips for Escaping a Structure in the Event of a Fire in North Pensacola

9/4/2019 (Permalink)

Plan your Escape Route in the Event of a Fire

SERVPRO of North Pensacola knows a small flame can turn into a large fire in a matter of minutes.  Sometimes, a portable fire extinguisher is not enough to save your property and the only thing you can do is escape.

A small flame can turn into a large fire in a matter of minutes. Lives are more important than objects, so get yourself and others out of danger.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola Offers these Tips for Escape:

  • Make an escape plan ahead of time. Make sure everyone knows the plan
  • Make sure that all doors and windows open easily
  • Plan at least two different ways of escaping every room
  • When you leave, close the doors and windows to shut in the flames
  • Practice the plan
  • Do not stop to pick up valuables. You can replace objects
  • Make sure your plan includes a place to meet that is a safe distance from the home
  • Do not turn off smoke alarms when you cook. You may need the warning
  • If you have to go through smoke, crawl under it

SERVPRO of North Pensacola reminds you to call the fire department once you are outside the home.

Hurricane preparation and boarding your windows in Pensacola

8/31/2019 (Permalink)

Boarding your windows can prevent further interior damage.

If you are familiar with hurricanes, you know that these storms include heavy winds, lots of water and the potential to be extremely dangerous. SERVPRO of North Pensacola wants to remind you that there are many ways to prepare for a hurricane, including finding a secondary shelter for safety, making sure you have plenty of bottled water and non-perishable foods, extra clothing and hygiene products, etc. If you have time before one hits, one of the more important things you should try to do is board up your windows and all other glass areas of your house!

Heavy winds can send objects flying, which can result in your windows, skylights, and sliding glass doors being blown out – and you will definitely have broken glass spread throughout your home as well as the water that gets in as a result of that. Make sure you measure out the correct amount of wood you will need to cover all glass areas. One tip that most people forget about is to paint the wood with an exterior primer and paint to prevent moisture damage. Secure the wood with galvanized screws and make sure your safety plan is in place. Hurricane Dorian is on its way and SERVPRO of North Pensacola wants you to stay as safe as possible, but do not hesitate to call us if our services are needed, especially if you have storm damage inside your home!

How to Use Fire Extinguishers in Molino

8/30/2019 (Permalink)

Learn the P.A.S.S. method and it might just save your life if a fire breaks out in Molino, Florida.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola hopes you never experience the devastation that comes with fire damage. However, in the event that disaster strikes, be aware that our IICRC certified technicians are qualified in all aspects of cleaning up the damage left by smoke and fire in your business or residence in Molino.

Fire extinguishers may help prevent fire damage or smoke damage, but only if you know how to use them.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola wants to share these tips from FEMA. You can try to fight a small fire only if:

  • You have alerted others in the building that there is a fire
  • Someone has called the fire department
  • You are physically able to use a fire extinguisher
  • The fire is small and contained (like a wastebasket)
  • You are safe from the fire’s smoke
  • You have a clear escape route

How to Use a Fire Extinguisher:   SERVPRO of North Pensacola suggests you remember

PASS:

Pull the pin. Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you and release the locking mechanism

Aim at the base of the fire

Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly

Sweep the nozzle side to side

Difference in Arson and Intentional Fires in Ferry Pass

8/30/2019 (Permalink)

Prevent fires by raising awareness of primary causes.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola wants you to be aware of the causes of fire damage and fire injuries so that you can help prevent them.

 Causes of Fires in Ferry Pass:

  • Arson & intentional fires. An “intentional fire” is one that is not set to cause harm, but it gets out of control.  Arson is a fire that is set to cause harm. Most of the time, arson and intentional fires are set outside. Deaths, injuries, and fire damage usually happen indoors
  • Candles
  • Kitchen fires are the leading cause of home fire injuries and home fire damage
  • Use all electrical equipment according to the directions
  • Heating equipment is the second most common cause of death in home fires
  • December, January, and February are the months that have the most home heating fires
  • Cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and other smoking materials are the biggest cause of fire deaths in the U.S. Think of preventing tragedy when explaining why to quit smoking
  • Children should never be left alone with matches, lighters, candles, or other dangerous materials. Children playing with fire cause hundreds of deaths and injuries every year

Please pay attention to fire safety. While we can help to restore your home or office, prevention and family safety should always come first. Share this blog with a friend who might want to learn more about fire prevention.

The Best Fire Prevention in Goulding is Fire Control

8/29/2019 (Permalink)

Fire is Fast. Prevention is Key.

The U.S. Fire Administration reports that a small flame can turn into a major fire in just 30 seconds. Flames and smoke can fill the house in just a few minutes. SERVPRO of North Pensacola will help you recover from fire damage. We hope you never need that kind of help.

The best fire prevention is fire control.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola notes that the week of October 9, 2019 is Fire Prevention Week.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola offers these Tips for Fire Prevention: Overview

  • Items that can catch fire include: dish towels, oven mitts, paper, curtains, wooden spoons, decorations

  • Keep kids at least 3 feet away from heat sources
  • Turn off heat sources when you leave the home or go to bed
  • Never use the oven as a heater
  • Have the fireplace chimney inspected & cleaned once a year

Tips to Prevent Kitchen Fires in Bohemia

8/29/2019 (Permalink)

Safety tips to avoid fire damage from cooking equipment

A leading cause of fire damage and fire injuries in the home come from cooking equipment. SERVPRO of North Pensacola wants to be there for you if this ever happens in your home.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola shares these tips to help prevent fire damage. They make more sense than not cooking at home.

  • Many kitchen items can catch fire, including: dish towels, oven mitts, recipes, wooden tools, and loose clothing
  • Never operate the stove or oven when you are tired or have been drinking alcohol
  • If you are frying, broiling, grilling, or boiling food, stay in the kitchen. If you leave, even for a short time, turn off the heat
  • Keep flammable items at least three feet from the stove top
  • Do not allow children within two to four feet of the stove or oven
  • If you must leave the house while cooking of any kind, turn off the heat sources

Remember that fire is fast. If you cannot contain a fire immediately, leave and bring everyone with you. Call 9-1-1 from outside the home.

Cleaning Smoke and Soot Damage in Quintette

8/27/2019 (Permalink)

Even a small kitchen fire can leave a big mess.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola can clean up damage from smoke and soot in your Quintette home.

Smoke is a mixture of gases and small particles. The small particles are also called ash, and they include soot.

Soot is the collection of particles left from incomplete burning of products that contain carbon. These products include wood and coal.

Smoke and soot do not destroy materials the way fire does. They leave behind greasy films and have an unpleasant odor.

Smoke moves from warmer areas to cooler areas. You will find smoke and soot damage on the ceiling above where the fire started, but you will find the damage in other places. SERVPRO of North Pensacola looks for damage in/on:

  • Outside walls and windows: Even if the fire was in the center of the room, smoke travels to the cooler areas
  • Closed-off spaces: Smoke and soot settle in cooler areas, including dresser drawers, closed closets, and wall cavities
  • Air ducts: smoke and soot travel throughout the house
  • Drapes and blinds. The drapes and blinds are cooler than other parts of the house. During a fire, the areas behind the drapes and blinds are cooler than the rest of the room. Remember that smoke travels to the cooler areas, leaving behind smoke and soot.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola investigates these areas to get a good idea of what kind of damage is in the building.

Beware of Flash Flooding in Pensacola

8/7/2019 (Permalink)

Flooding can wreak havoc on your home or business in Pensacola.

Flooding in a structure can occur through natural channels such as flash flooding or through accumulation of water over a period of time from water line leaks/ruptures. Attacking this problem without professional help can become tedious and possibly dangerous in Pensacola. When your home and/or business are affected by water damage, it is critical to act immediately to minimize cost and inconvenience. SERVPRO of North Pensacola has trained professionals who are quick to respond and apply the latest equipment and techniques to make the removal of water and the restoration of your property as organized and pain-free as possible. The drying process is timed and documented to ensure the job is done quickly and completely. Our hope is that we can make the entire unwanted experience “Like it never even happened.” SERVPRO of North Pensacola is prepared to resolve damage from any unwanted water, fire, mold, or passing storms.

Storm Evacuation with Disabilities in Yniestra

7/25/2019 (Permalink)

Be prepared when a storm hits your Yniestra home.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola has these tips for people in our community dealing with disabilities during an evacuation. You may want to consider, during times of flooding, to pack a bag to have ready in case the worst happens.

Plan for backup if you have your own car. A storm or flood may damage your car.

Ask your healthcare provider to suggest what specific devices you might need if you needed to evacuate due to an emergency:

  • Where can I get medical supplies?
  • How I do get accessible transportation?
  • If medical help is needed, where would I go?
  • Does this facility have a disability ramp access?

Items to bring with you:

  • Written list for emergency contacts
  • List of all medications, dosages, and allergies
  • Style & serial number of medical devices
  • Supply of medical equipment
  • Extra battery for a power wheelchair
  • Any cushions or padding
  • Wheelchairs, canes, braces, etc.
  • Medical bracelets
  • Medical insurance cards
  • List and/or supply of prescription medications

Our service animals are also affected by storm damage. For people who have service animals in Yniestra, consider:

  • Packing extra food, water, & other supplies for the service animal
  • Tell emergency responders that your service animal travels with you
  • Shelters and other buildings may not refuse entry to a service animal

Dehumidifying Your Home

3/1/2019 (Permalink)

When you live in Northwest Florida, humidity is inevitable. The warm weather we enjoy so much is saturated by a significant amount of water, which generates the excessive moisture around you. While many fear what the humidity means for their hair or their skin, have you thought about what it means for your home?

In humid climates, homes run serious risk of damage from collecting all of the moisture the air carries. A common result of high humidity levels in your home is mold. Mold grows quickly in warm, damp conditions and can fester into an entire colony within 24 hours of their spores attaching themselves to surfaces and feeding. As mold grows and spreads throughout your home, allergens and irritants are released into the air which creates a dangerous situation for you and your family. The allergens and irritants can become toxic, causing respiratory problems and other health issues.

That’s why it’s critically important to take steps in preventing mold growth in the first place. We recommend starting with a dehumidifier for your home. Using a dehumidifier will help you maintain optimal humidity levels that are both healthy and comfortable. Running fans, and checking on your HVAC system will also help keep the humidity down. Make sure everything is running smoothly and functioning properly to help circulate air flow, and if you need help with an inspection you can always call SERVPRO of North Pensacola. We’ll also help check your vents, filters, and make sure everything is in good working condition.

If you do discover mold growing in your home, it should be dealt with immediately - it can be harmful to your home and your health. Call SERVPRO of North Pensacola at 850-466-3076 and our quick response team will be there to begin the mold remediation process right away.

Smoke and Soot Cleanup

3/9/2017 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of North Pensacola will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Residents:  Follow These Mold Safety Tips If You Suspect Mold

3/9/2017 (Permalink)

If you see visible mold, do not disturb it. You can inadvertently spread the mold infestation throughout your home. When mold is disturbed, the mold can release microscopic mold spores which become airborne and can circulate inside your home.

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of North Pensacola for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.

About Our Mold Remediation Services

SERVPRO of North Pensacola specializes in mold cleanup and restoration, in fact, it’s a cornerstone of our business.  Our crews are highly trained restoration professionals that use specialized equipment and techniques to properly remediate your mold problem quickly and safely.
