Quick but Deadly Storm causes Tree Damage in Ocala, FL.

SERVPRO of Ocala was called out to a home where a large oak tree slammed into the house as shown in the photo. Tree branches tore through the roof, walls and windows. The family inside was not hurt but badly shaken. What is surprising to everyone is how fast and sudden this storm came up. The winds were so strong within seconds this damage occurred. This goes to show that no weather can be taken lightly when it looks like it won't add up to much. The SERVPRO crew sprang into action getting the tarp on the roof and the family out with the aid of the local Marion County Florida Red Cross.   

Hurricane Flood Damage-SERVPRO of Ocala Storm Teams

Applying Antimicrobial after Flooding in Ocala, FL.

When flood waters caused by storms enter a home or business they bring with them tons of contaminants. Besides the water damage itself causing damage to wood, drywall, furniture, etc. the water now has contaminated the contents and structure. Once the material is removed and dried, antimicrobial, disinfectant is applied by the SERVPRO of Ocala professional, destroying harmful bacteria and preventing mold growth. 

Restaurant Fire Odor in Ocala, FL.

The last thing any restaurant would want would be flow smelling odors. This is what this local Ocala, FL. restaurant had to deal with when they discovered a pan in one of their ovens burning with food. Fire damage can be a bad source of strong odor especially when its a protein based fire. Protein when burnt can send off strong sour odors through the area. SERVPRO of Ocala has the training and 45 years of fire cleanup and restoration experience to eliminate strong odors.   

Exhaust Fan Causes Fire in Ocala, FL.

Where their is smoke there is Fire! but would you think a bathroom exhaust fan would be the cause? We use them everyday in homes and like the photo shows, in places of business. The owner of this Ocala Florida busniess did not expect to have to call out the Marion County Florida Fire Department when they discovered the bathroom exhaust fan sparked and then burst into flames. The smoke and soot rolled out of the bathroom and found its way up into the HVAC's return that spred the odor and soot everywhere. SERVPRO of Ocala was called in and within a few weeks had it cleaned up and restored. The folks at this local business where very impressed.

Small Water Damage Interrupted Commercial Business in Ocala, FL.

This is the result of a water damage that appeared to be small but the water made its way throughout this commercial office facility to cause a temporary interruption of the day to day operations. Office furniture etc. had to be displaced to make room for the drying equipment. This was a medical facility so important documents and closets had to be open for equipment and the SERVPRO of Ocala crews to get in. Even what seems to be a small water damage can turn out to be large in its annoying manner to cause people and work spaces to be moved in order to try and keep working.

Commercial Assisted Living Lobby Fire

When paper was accidently thrown into this gas fire place, it caught fire quickly and sent out a quick burst of flames and smoke. As the photos shows it scorched and blackened the ceilings and surrounding wall. Luckily no one was injured. What the photo does not reveal is the sprinkler system head just above the fire place. Had that gone off the damage might have been far worse. SERVPRO of Ocala was very happy to come to the rescue and get this beautiful assisted living facility back to normal and clean!

Thermal Imaging used by SERVPRO of Ocala Professional

SERVPRO of Ocala's owner, Greg Williams is seen here using a Thermal Imaging Camera to detect the difference in temperature in this glued down carpet. Once our drying equipment is in place and running, there is still the need to check every day to make sure the drying results are being achieved.

In decades past, the best way to find moisture in a home or commercial facility was to rip into drywall or to pull back flooring. This, of course, was an invasive way to find leaks and standing water. Today, SERVPRO of Ocala professionals can often use an infrared camera for water leak detection. Thermal imaging is basically using a tool to detect slight temperature differentials inside or outside of a home or business. The infrared camera used for thermal imaging creates a visual map that allows the user to pinpoint the exact location of leaks and moisture.

High Humidity= Mold Growth

Sometimes, humidity or dampness (water vapor) in the air can supply enough moisture for mold growth. Indoor relative humidity (RH) should be kept below 60 percent -- ideally between 30 percent and 50 percent, if possible.

The photo shows mold growth on walls and ceilings as a result of high humidity because the home was closed up with little or no air conditioning.

To the untrained eye, air conditioners cool your home by blowing cool air into it; the truth is that air conditioners remove the heat and humidity from your living spaces while blowing cool air into it. ACs are able to remove heat and humidity due to the refrigerant in the system.

Nail Salon Fire Damage-Ocala, FL

A local nail salon caught fire when a nail drying machine overheated busting into flames. The photo shows the damage done in the area of the machine. What it doesn't show is the cell phone company next door in this shopping plaza and the water damage caused by the fire department's excellent response to put out the flames before any further damage could happen. Besides the smoke and heat damage, the machine is made out of plastic and this type of material can be difficult to remove from all surfaces including the HVAC. SERVPRO of Ocala performed wonderfully removing the debris and odor. Please see the next door cell phone company photo in our Photo Gallery to show the damage they sustained. 

Water Damage from Fire Next Door-Ocala, FL

This cell phone store suffered water damage to their showroom and storage room when a fire broke out next door in a nail salon store.

Everyone was thankful for the quick response of our local fire department keeping the fire contained. We salute our brave men and women of the First Responders in our community.

Shopping Center Flooding-Ocala, Fl

A micro-burst of rain flooded a large shopping center in Ocala, Fl. SERVPRO of Ocala was called in to help with the wind and water intrusion in several commercial facilities. The photo was taken by a SERVPRO of Ocala emergency crew on their way into the area. The photo shows how fast the waters are rising stranding shoppers inside the stores and reaching as high as car doors.

Fire in a Business in Ocala, FL

Both water and fire can really cause havoc in a building. But when Fire breaks out in a fully operational  business, than this can really be detrimental. This photo is one such example. This call center is operated 24/7 taking calls and dispatching out the calls to their clients. A fire started when an electronic devise located on a desk bust into flames. Smoke, heat and panic caused the center to stop all operations and evacuate employees for safety precautions. The fire department arrived and cleared the area so the business could start back up again. But can you imagine if this fire had been larger and caused even more damage? This business could have been shut down for months! SERVPRO of Ocala was called out to begin the cleanup and deodorization process. Within days the area effected including the HVAC system was cleaned and sanitized.   

Damaged Floors due to Water Intrusion in Summerfield, FL

These hard wood floors can be seen buckled and discolored because of a leaking pipe in the wall. Yet there was no indication that the pipe was leaking until the floors began to buckle. The homeowner was unaware of any water intrusion going on. This is one reason it is so important to call out SERVPRO of Ocala and let the professionals find the water that is hidden. It's the water that Can't be seen or felt that can cause damage unexpectedly. Notice as well please the green "air scrubber" and the spray applicator. The scrubber is keeping the air clean of dust particles as the crew was cutting out the dry wall and the soon to be removed flooring. The sprayer is filled with a safe botanical Anti-microbial. This spray will help disinfect the area that has been damaged by the unseen water.  

Building a Containment in Lady Lake, FL

Large commercial buildings that have a mold issue sometimes need large containment built.When a large building area (more than 30 sq.ft. of contiguous moldy material) is to be cleaned, use of negative air and dust containment are appropriate. Our SERVPRO of Ocala Crew photo shows use of strong 2x4 wood construction frames to support a 6-mil poly dust barrier giving a passage through a building into the mold cleanup area. It is important that the mold contractor protect workers performing remediation using appropriate masks, clothing, etc. Do not take down the mold demolition dust containment barrier before the building has successfully passed a mold remediation clearance inspection and test. If the cleanup was not complete, properly performed, and successful, early dust barrier removal risks cross-contamination into other building areas.

Water Line can cause Big Problems, Ocala FL

The photo shows what can happen when a simple water line to a sink in this hair salon broke. SERVPRO of Ocala crews responded and cleared out the contents in this hair salon after a water line to a sink failed. Of course water damage is never good but its even worse after hours when no one is around to shut off the water. Even though the floors are concrete, the water ran a long time covering the area and saturating the drywall. Furniture, rugs, etc. can be damaged by water in businesses and homes. Its important to respond as quickly as possible to begin the extraction and get the water out!
