If you have had the unfortunate experience of water damage, fire or outbreaks of mold in your home or business, you know the difficulties involved in restoring the building and the contents back to normal conditions. A company certified in water mitigation, fire damage restoration, and mold remediation, has the credentials and experience to evaluate the damage and restore property to normal if conditions allow. ServiceMaster Tampa Bay serves the greater Tampa Bay area including Apollo Beach, Zephyrhills, Largo and Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.
Mold poses a number of health hazards. Mold in air conditioning ducts circulates airborne contaminants throughout a building, which can cause respiratory problems or aggravate existing problems such as allergies and asthma. Mold may also occur in upholstery, walls or flooring because of poor ventilation or excess indoor humidity. Humidity in the coastal areas of Florida contributes to development of mold.
ServiceMaster technicians are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification, the industry leader in remediation training. Technicians identify sources of moisture that cause mold to develop, evaluate whether furnishings, clothing or building components can be treated and oversee the removal of mold. Sources of moisture will be controlled or removed.
Water Damage Restoration
Water can cause significant damage before it is noticed. Water penetrates walls, saturates flooring and can damage insulation. Certified technicians use sophisticated moisture detection equipment to identify pockets of water hidden in walls or other places not readily visible.
Water from sewage backups pose a dangerous health hazard. Bacteria, mold, fungi, parasites and viruses carry pathogens that cause disease. Children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems are particularly vulnerable. Only highly-trained professionals should undertake sewage cleanup and remediation.
Fire Damage Restoration
Damage to a building and its contents from fire and smoke takes specialized training to return property to a pre-loss condition. Cleanup should begin as soon as possible after a fire. Experts know how to neutralize the acidic action of soot that causes discoloration, corrosion and rust. Cleanup includes odor remediation, sealing salvageable surfaces and removing damaged property.
