Water Damages Don’t Wait.  Whether in the middle of the night, on a holiday weekend, or during normal business hours, the team at SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County is ready to respond when commercial water damages strike.  While residential and commercial water damages do share many similarities, there are also some notable differences that our team of professionals is trained to handle:

Understanding Flooding in Northwest Florida

Cartoon of flood waters affecting cars and buildings When flood damages occur, trust SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County to Help!

Flooding is defined as “an overflowing of water onto land that is normally dry.”  Flooding can be caused by a multitude of different occurrences; the two experienced most frequently in the Northwest Florida being tropical systems and heavy thunderstorms.  Floods are the most common and widespread of all weather-related natural disasters, therefore it is important to understand the different types of flooding possible in our area, and to prepare ahead of time in case of such an event.

River Flood – a river flood occurs when water rises over the top of a riverbank.  This can immediately affect structures located near the river, and if water levels continue to rise, affect homes and businesses downstream.

Coastal Flood – a coastal flood occurs when land areas along the coast are inundated with rising waters.  A combination of factors, including tidal patterns, rainfall, and land elevation can all play a role in coastal flooding issues. 

Storm Surge – Storm surge is a variation of coastal flooding in which the wind, atmospheric pressure, and waves of a severe storm greatly increase the water level in coastal areas.  Highly common during hurricanes, storm surge can occur very quickly, and pose serious property and safety concerns.

Flash Flood – a flash flood is usually caused by heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time.  Flash floods can occur with very little warning and be extremely dangerous.  Clogged draining systems and standing debris can contribute to the likelihood of flash flooding occurrences.

Understanding different types of flooding, those that are most likely to affect your home or business, and how to prepare, can help to protect both your and your property in the event of a flooding disaster.  In the unfortunate event that flood waters have caused you to experience property damage, know that SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County has the training, experience, and equipment to help.  For more information about our services, give us a call at 850-466-3089.

Understanding Water Damage - Categories of Water

Home floor and door with water damage in Century, Florida When water damage strikes, SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County is Here to Help. Give us a call at 850-466-3089, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

When water damages affect your home or business, it is important to begin the mitigation process as soon as possible: the shorter the amount of time wet materials are left unattended, the less amount of damage caused.  Untreated water damages can lead to a host of other issues, including the potential for microbial growth, structural instability, and the development of unpleasant odors.  When SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County responds to you water damage, one of the first things we will determine is what kind of water has affected your property.  The category of water greatly affects the clean-up and restoration process followed:

  • Category 1, or “Clean Water” is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon factors such as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.
  • Category 2, or “Gray Water” has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.
  • Category 3, or “Black Water” is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3 water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

Each of these categories of water requires a different mitigation approach, equipment, and materials.  In order to safely and accurately remediate your property, no matter what category of water, our team undergoes substantial training, and follows guidelines set forth by industry leading organizations, including the IICRC.   Serving Cantonment, Century, and surrounding areas, SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County is Here to Help with all categories of water damage loss.  Give us a call at 850-466-3089, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Safely Enjoying Your Outdoor Fire Pit

2/17/2021 (Permalink)

Fire Pit on a Backyard Patio If a fire has caused damage to your Pensacola, Cantonment, or Century home, give SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County a call at 850-466-3089!

During the cooler winter months, a favorite activity of many families is to gather around the outdoor fire pit, roast hot dogs or marshmallows, and share quality time together.  Fire pits, however, if not operated correctly, can be dangerous and pose a serious risk to both you and your property.  Below are a few tips on how to safely place, operate, and enjoy your outdoor fire pit:

  • NEVER leave your fire unattended. A simple shift in wind direction could easily cause an unattended fire to spread and get out of control.
  • Do not burn near buildings, low hanging tree branches, or containers of flammable liquid. Give at least 10 feet between the placement of the fire pit and any surrounding structures before lighting the fire.
  • Do not wear loose fitting clothing near the fire pit.
  • Always keep a fire extinguisher nearby and handy when using your fire pit.
  • When extinguishing your fire, slowly apply water to the coals, and spread the ashes around to allow them to cool. Additional water may need to be added, and it is important to make sure all coals are out before leaving the area.

In the unfortunate event that your property experiences damages from your fire pit, or other fire source, know that SERVPRO of Northwest Escambia County is here for you.  We have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to remediate fire damages of all sizes, helping make it “Like it never even happened.”  To learn more about our fire service lines, please visit our Fire Restoration webpage, or give us a call at 850-466-3089.
