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!

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!

Water Damage Clean-up and Prevention Tips for Pensacola

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.

Avoid Commercial Fire Damage in Your Pensacola Office

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. Your place of business should offer a training session on how to use fire extinguishers. 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.
