Causes of Miami Water Damage

Water damage often occurs without warning – floods and storms, a pipe breaks or your sump pump fail – leaving your home or office in a precarious situation and leaving you with a water removal emergency. Whether you have experienced storm damage or you’ve discovered flooding from a broken or leaky pipe, a sewer line break, a sink or toilet overflow, warped hardwood floors, or a malfunctioning appliance like a water heater, washing machine, dishwasher or refrigerator in your home, Cleanability offers a 24-hour emergency water removal and damage restoration service and our highly trained Miami technicians have the expertise to restore your property to its original condition. No matter how big your flood damage may be, we have an effective option for you.
Water-Damage
First Step in Water Restoration
First, stop the source of the water from continuing to flood your property. Then we can get to the water damage cleanup. Our truck mount water extraction unit will pump out any standing water. Then our high-grade air movers and dehumidifiers are set up to remove whatever moisture remains and ensure that secondary water damage will cease and desist. We can even remove moisture from your walls. Once the standing water and remaining moisture is removed the cleaning process begins.
Sanitizing After Water or Flood Damage Strikes
Next is the sanitizing procedure where Cleanability carefully goes through the affected area to kill any bacteria left behind by the water. Once the excess moisture is removed from the air, we will assess the damage done to your carpets and furniture and, depending on the level of severity, some will be cleaned on site, while others will be taken to our facility and, if necessary, still others may be deemed to be too damaged to be salvaged.
Sewage Damage Cleanup & Removal in Miami

If you have found yourself dealing with sewage damage, we also provide safe sewage cleanup and sewage removal in Miami. Raw sewage is difficult to cleanup and can be extremely hazardous. Sewage can contain high amounts of harmful bacteria and there are serious health risks associated with it. It’s critical that you do not try to cleanup a mess from broken pipes that are connected to a sewage line. Coming in contact with raw sewage can cause disease, can destroy your valuables and cause severe damage to your property.

Only trained professionals with the right equipment should handle sewage removal. Our team of professionally certified experts has years of experience in resolving various sewage cleanup and repair problems.

Water Damage Recovery Tips

Take the following steps to minimize the damage and call Cleanability at
(305) 386-2100!

When you suffer a water damage emergency, time is of the essence. It is important to take care of water or flood damage as soon as possible because the longer freestanding water remains in your property, the longer the damage continues. Sheetrock will sag, hardwood floors will buckle, vinyl flooring will separate from its base, ceiling tiles will crack and bacteria will begin to grow rapidly. Cleanability wants you to know that there are Dos and Don’ts you should be aware of that can help minimize the water damage before we get there to help.

What You Should Do:

  • Remain Calm – Do Not Panic!
  • Shut off the source of water if possible.
  • Turn off the circuit breakers for wet areas to avoid electrical shock.
  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removing lamps and tabletop items.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Remove and prop up wet upholstery cushions for even drying.
  • Remove art objects, computers, documents and other valuable items to a safe, dry place. Don’t forget to check under the beds and other furnishings
  • Remove colored rugs, hang draperies and pin up furniture skirts to avoid contact with wet carpeting or floors.
  • Gather loose items from floors.
  • Hang furs and leather goods to dry separately at room temperature.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after contact with contaminated items.

What You Should Not Do:

  • Have contact with sewage and/or any items contaminated by sewage.
  • Walk on wet carpet, damaged or other wet areas any more than necessary.
  • Enter rooms with standing water where electrical shock hazards may exist from electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers or electrical equipment and do not use home vacuum or shop vacuum to remove the water
  • Turn on the HVAC system or use household fans to dry the structure if there is a possibility of spreading contaminated air.
  • Leave colored rugs, books, newspapers, magazines or other colored items on wet carpets or floors.
  • Use TVs or other household appliances while standing on wet carpets or floors.
  • Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet or enter rooms where ceilings are sagging.
  • Use products for personal hygiene and cleanliness if exposed to contaminated areas.
Fire Restoration

FIRE RESTORATION SPECIALISTS

Fires can be especially devastating to your home or business. After a fire you may have lost a lot, but at Cleanability, we want you to know that you haven’t lost everything. We are here to restore your hope as well as your property. From the moment we receive your call until your home or office is brought back to its pre-fire and soot-damaged condition, we promise to be by your side. Our highly qualified professional technicians are fully trained in specialized fire, smoke and soot residue damage restoration techniques and have the experience to quickly clean up and restore your property to your satisfaction.

Restoring Your Property Quickly & Efficiently

We know that the effects of damage increase over time and restoration costs escalate the longer neutralization, corrosion control and cleaning is delayed. When property owners prolong the start of the restoration process, they multiply the effects brought on by the fire. 
The following is a timeline of the effects of fire, smoke and soot residue:
  • During combustion, soot residue and volatile vapors are carried by rising and expanding air to surfaces throughout a structure, and are deposited.
  • This process occurs repeatedly until combustion ends, with soot residue building up on surfaces layer by layer.
  • By the time restoration technicians arrive, lacquer-like soot residue may be quite difficult to dissolve and remove.
We will determine the exact type of smoke damage you have suffered:
  • Wet Smoke: Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.
  • Dry Smoke: Fast burning at high temperatures.
  • Protein: Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes. Extreme pungent odor.
  • Fuel Oil Soot: Furnace puff backs cause fuel oil soot.
  • Other Types: Tear gas, fingerprint powder, and fire extinguisher residue are other types.

Fire, Smoke & Soot Damage Recovery Tips

Take the following steps to minimize the damage and call Cleanability at
(305) 386-2100 – We Can Help!

Fires can be especially devastating to your home or business. They give you no warning when they are going to strike and you usually don’t have time to save your treasured belongings. Cleanability wants you to know that you haven’t lost everything. If your property has suffered from fire, smoke and soot damage, there are Dos and Don’ts you should be aware of that can help minimize the damage before we get there to help.

What You Should Do:

  • Remain Calm – Do Not Panic!
  • Remove your pets, especially birds, to keep them safe.
  • Open your windows to air out the property and limit your movement in the home to prevent soot from further damaging your carpet and upholstery.
  • Empty your freezer and refrigerator completely if you have no power. Prop the doors open to help prevent odor.
  • Wash your hands to prevent soot from soiling your upholstery, walls and woodwork.
  • Cover your rugs, upholstery and high traffic areas on your carpet with dry, colorfast towels or old sheets.
  • Wipe soot from the chrome on your faucets, trim and appliances, and protect these surfaces with a light coating of lubricant like oil or petroleum jelly.
  • Wash both sides of the leaves on your house plants.
  • Change your HVAC filter, tape double layers of cheesecloth over the air registers to stop particles of soot from getting in or out of the system, and turn the system off until you can have it checked by a trained professional.
  • Take an inventory of all of your contents.

What You Should Not Do:

  • Wipe or wash the walls, ceilings, or other painted/absorbent surfaces until Cleanability gets there.
  • Shampoo or otherwise try to clean your carpets and/or upholstered furniture.
  • Use your upholstered furniture if possible.
  • Use or try to clean any TVs, stereos, or other electrical appliances until they can be professionally checked and cleaned by an authorized repair service.
  • Eat any canned or packaged food or beverages that may have been subjected to the excessive heat of the fire.
  • Send any clothing suffering smoke damage to an ordinary dry cleaner, because improper cleaning may permanently set the smoke odor in the garments.
  • Turn on ceiling fixtures, like fans or lights, if the ceiling is wet from the firefighters’ efforts to extinguish the fire, as the wiring may be damaged and cause electrical shock.
  • Turn on your HVAC system if it is not currently on, in an ill-conceived attempt to dry out your home. If it is already on, turn it off and turn off your ceiling fans for the same reason as air movement may create secondary damage.
Mold Remediation

PROFESSIONAL MOLD REMEDIATION

One of the more serious consequences of flooding in your home or business is that it may lead to an infestation of mold, which not only causes damage to your property but can lead to some dangerous health problems. Cleanability can inspect your property for mold and safely restore it to its prior mold-free condition so contact us as soon as you suspect that you may have a mold infestation. Microscopic mold spores thrive on moisture and can spread quickly when a source of water is present. It often produces a distinctive, musty odor that can help locate the infested areas. Cleanability uses state-of-the-art mold detection and isolation equipment to identify and isolate the affected areas.

WHAT WE DO DURING THE MOLD REMEDIATION PROCESS:

  • Perform a comprehensive inspection and damage assessment of your property to identify moisture sources and evidence of mold on any and all surfaces.
  • Evaluate visible or suspected mold growth, determine the extent and nature of the problem and allocate the required resources to resolve it.
  • Isolate and contain damage to the smallest possible area and prevent its further spread.
  • Use our high-tech filtration equipment including air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to remove spores from the air and prevent their further spread as we begin to remediate the problem.
  • Use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to destroy eradicate mold and prevent new colonies from forming.
  • Dispose of heavily infested materials like drywall, carpeting and upholstery if necessary to prevent the areas of heaviest growth from returning.
  • Completely clean, sanitize and restore any and all items like furniture, window treatments and clothing.
  • Sanitize and deodorize the property.
  • Completely restore the property including repairing or replacing drywall, carpeting, wall and window treatments, and even reconstructing rooms and/or offices as needed.

If you have a mold problem in your home or office, call Cleanability at (305) 386-2100 today for an emergency response or just to speak to one of our friendly staff members to make an appointment for a free consultation.

MOLD DAMAGE RECOVERY TIPS

The best way to prevent mold growth is to keep all materials in your home as clean and dry as possible. Should you suffer a mold infestation we want you to know that your primary focus should be safety. There are Dos and Don’ts you should be aware of that can help minimize the damage and ensure your health and safety. Then call Cleanability to have the mold removed.

What You Should Do:

  • Remain Calm – Do Not Panic!
  • Check for visible signs of mold. Potted plants (roots and soil), furnishings, or stored clothing and bedding material, as well as many other household goods, could already contain mold growth.
  • Look for discolorations and wet spots, inspect condensation pans (refrigerators and air conditioners) for mold growth and “sniff out” musty odors.
  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.

What You Should Not Do:

  • Touch or disturb the mold.
  • Blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.

HURRICANES & TROPICAL STORMS

10-Step Family Plan

STEP 1: Hold a family meeting.

Discuss what can happen in an emergency. Encourage children to talk about their fears and explain some of the things you’ll be doing to keep everyone safe. Start a written list of things you’ll need to take care in advance and encourage everyone in the family to contribute their ideas.

STEP 2: Discuss whether you’ll need to evacuate.

Determine whether you live in an evacuation zone and, if so, where you will go if an evacuation order is given. Going to a family or friend’s house or hotel outside the evacuation area is your best choice. If a hurricane is approaching and you choose to go out of town, do so well in advance of the storm. Since shelters provide for only basic needs, this should be your choice of last resort.

STEP 3: Ensure your assets are protected.

Inventory your home possessions and videotape, record or photograph items of value. Review your insurance policies to ensure you have adequate coverage. Know that once a hurricane watch has been issued, insurers will not issue new or additional coverage.

STEP 4: Assess your home for vulnerable areas.

Do a walk-through of your home and property to evaluate your roof, windows, garage door, landscaping, etc. and determine what actions you will take.

STEP 5: Make a plan to protect your vehicles.

Decide where you will store or park your vehicle, boat or RV. Check your vehicle insurance policy and keep it in the same safe place as your homeowner’s policy.

STEP 6: Secure your home.

Decide what actions you will need to take to protect your home and your property (shutters, generator, tree-trimming), and to keep as comfortable as possible during recovery.

STEP 7: Determine if anyone in your home is vulnerable in an emergency.

If anyone in your home has special needs in an emergency because of a medical condition, or because they are elderly or disabled, make arrangements in advance to accommodate those needs.

STEP 8: Make a plan for your pets.

Determine how you will address your pet’s needs and make a plan in case you have to evacuate. Be sure to plan for large outdoor animals as well, such as horses, pigs, and cows.

STEP 9: Gather your supplies.

Use the checklist provided to determine your family’s food, water, and medical needs and assemble your emergency kit according to those needs.

STEP 10: Notify others of your plan.

Let family or friends know what your emergency plan is so they can check on you in the aftermath of the event. Establish an out-of-town contact.

First Aid Kit

Assemble a first aid kit. A first aid kit should include:
Sterile adhesive bandages in assorted sizes
2-inch sterile gauze pads (4-6)

2-inch sterile roller bandages (3 rolls)
3-inch sterile roller bandages (3 rolls)
Scissors

Needle
Moistened towelettes
Antiseptic

Two-week supply of food, water and any required medications
Litter box and cat litter

Veterinarian name and emergency contact information
Rabies certificate and current license

Quick Tips

Before the storm make sure you gather: money, prescription medicines, fuel for the vehicle, important documents, photo inventory of belongings, proof of occupancy

HURRICANES
& TROPICAL STORMS (AFTER)

Floods are one of the most common damages we encounter after a tropical storm or hurricane has made landfall or simply passed near by.

Before entering a building where flood damage may have occurred, make sure it’s safe: check for electrical hazards and structural damage, and use proper protective gear like boots, gloves and respirators.
Before you start any construction or repairs, check for common hazardous materials like lead paint and asbestos, which may require help from professional and State-licensed contractors.

Then, follow these tips:

Act Quickly

The severity of damage escalates the longer water sits and building components and contents stay wet, so time is of the essence in the aftermath of a flood. In fact, mold will grow within 48-72 hours, so aim to start removing water and drying the environment within 48 hours. Have a list of professionals on hand to call, and understand your insurance policy, as some only cover mold damage up to a certain amount, while others don’t provide any reimbursement for mold.

Ventilate Affected Areas To Prevent Mold Growth

Mold loves moisture and organic materials such as paper or particleboard. In order to mitigate or slow damage, open windows if weather permits and place fans inside of them to keep air moving and maintain moderate temperatures. Work toward the fan as you clean to minimize cross contamination.

Assess Damage to Items and Materials

Assess the type of water absorbed by items, such as rainwater, water from broken pipes, contaminated river water or bacteria-filled sewage. There are ways to salvage specialty items but the decision on whether to save or trash an item will vary depending on the dollar and sentimental value to the owner. It may not be worthwhile to salvage drywall, carpets and pads, mattresses, pillows, box springs and particleboard. On the other hand, it might be worthwhile to restore costly Persian rugs, leather couches and antiques or heirlooms. Wet clothing and many household fabrics may be salvageable through machine washing, and a 10-minute soak in detergent and hot water, to remove contamination and stains. The IICRC strongly recommends that in water damages where there are contaminants present (e.g., bacteria, sewage, mold) or where small children or immune-compromised individuals are present that an inspection be conducted by an appropriately trained restorer and remediator.

Expose Pockets of Saturation

Hidden and concealed pockets of saturation need to be opened for cleaning and drying. Layers between building materials hold water that must be discovered and removed or dried. On walls, find the water line and inspect at least a foot beyond it to make sure all damage, wet materials and mold are discovered. Remove and discard the damaged drywall and wet wall insulation. Wet carpets can usually be dried by professionals with the right equipment, but carpet padding, which is like a big sponge, should be discarded. Wood base trim and hardwood can also be saved with the right equipment if they can be accessed and completely dried on both sides. Remember to investigate concealed cavities such as behind walls, in mechanical spaces, under cabinets and furniture, and in crawl spaces.

Conduct a Thorough Cleaning

Durable, non-porous or semi-porous materials, such as studs and joists, hardwood flooring and vinyl products, can be cleaned with common cleaning products or specialized products with detergents. During cleaning, take care to protect areas that are unaffected by the water or mold. After a thorough cleaning of salvageable materials, a disinfectant solution may need to be applied in case of harmful bacteria from sewage, river water debris or even standing water that has gone bad. Professionals like water restoration and mold remediation contractors and indoor environmental professionals can help you decide what is best for your situation. Once you’ve cleaned the wet materials, conduct another round of cleaning. If you choose to vacuum, use a HEPA-filter vacuum to remove allergens, fine dust and spores.

Confirm Drying Before Reconstruction

In order to prevent dry rot and structural damage, it’s important not to reconstruct or cover wood and other wet materials until the moisture content has been adequately reduced. A water restoration professional can confirm proper drying before reconstruction.

But most important, in case of a tropical storm or hurricane impact, flood and water damage, contact your professional team at Cleanability. We work around the clock to ensure you, and your family are safe, and your property restored.
