Community   A day at the Players at Sawgrass Mr & Mrs.Williams.

We are always happy to share our connection with the PGA at the Players Championships Sawgrass. Each year we treat a few clients to a day on the greens and spoil them at our corporate hospitality tent with food and beverage. The views this year were incredible as we were seated on the 16 & 17th hole and got to see the Tee off box just to our left. Watching the pros interact with the fans on the sidelines was an added treat  We spent the day getting to know the game as well as our clients. We are always grateful for a day off to connect. We want to personally thank our clients theirbusiness and look forward to working with each of you in the future.SERVPRO of Valdosta #GreenTruckteam

Water damage to floors

3/13/2019 (Permalink)

You can count on our team to know what to do when it comes to water and floors. There are many different ways to approach water when floors are involved. Sometimes it requires complete removal and sometimes we can simply dry out the surface. In the situation above the water had penetrated thru the flooring to the slab. We knew to remove all the affected flooring and partner that with setting the proper amount of equipment to make sure it will dry properly. In most cases, we monitor the moisture levels daily assuring that the structure is dry. Our 2nd line of defense is treating it with our patented plant-based antimicrobial agent so we can be assured that there would be no issues with mold at a later date. All of these behaviors prepare a home to be ready for the contractors to come in and replace the floor.

Being part of the crowd is not ideal the day or week before a hurricane. Below are a few things to have on hand for the season. If we are affected by a hurricane it will make your ability to ride out the storm easier.

  • Have a plan to evacuate if required

Will bleach cure my mold problem.

Mold Remediation Will bleach cure my mold problem. Mold remediation on a ceiling.

So a huge misconception is that bleachwill solve mold problems. In fact, as much as the smell triggers us to think that it is clean anddisinfected. Bleach does not disinfect poroussurfaces like wood, linoleum, cloth or drywall. Bleach actually can encourage mold to grow into a toxic mold because it's providing the mold with moisture to multiply. When trying to eradicate the mold color, bleach is a good choice but will not inhibit the growth of mold. Here at SERVPRO of Valdosta, we choose family friendly, kid-friendly and pet safe products for our customers when remediating mold. Comparedto using bleach which is corrosiveand has toxic vapors our products will not harmyour home, surfaces or yourself.You can count on the best equipment, the best crew and the best job completed when you choose SERVPRO.
