Storm Causes Flooding and Property Damage in DeFuniak Springs?

9/27/2022 (Permalink)

A person looks out the window while it is raining. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Okaloosa County.

Our local team in Crestview, DeFuniak Springs, and Chipley responds to storm damage and flooding calls every year in DeFuniak Springs. In 2017, several tornadoes swept the South, causing floodwaters to ravage DeFuniak Springs, killing five people.

We have the training, equipment, and experience to extract water quickly and thoroughly dry areas compromised by water. Here are some tips from Federal Emergency Management Agency on things you can do to stay safe during a flood:

  • If told to evacuate, evacuate immediately. Never drive around barricades. Local responders use them to safely direct traffic out of flooded areas.
  • Contact your health provider if you are sick and need medical attention. Wait for further care instructions and shelter in place, if possible. Call 9-1-1 if you have a medical emergency.
  • Listen to EAS, NOAA Weather Radio, or local alerting systems for current information and instructions regarding flooding
  • Get to the highest level if trapped in a building. Do not climb into a closed attic space and only get on the roof if necessary and once there is a signal for help.
  • Stay off bridges and out of fast-moving water. Turn Around. Don’t Drown!
  • Say inside your car if it is trapped in rapidly moving water. Get on the roof if water is rising inside the vehicle.

Advanced Technology and Equipment Used to Restore Smoke Damage in DeFuniak Springs?

9/20/2022 (Permalink)

People are socializing in a smoke-filled room. We are leaders in fire damage restoration in Okaloosa County.

Where there’s smoke, there’s smoke damage.

Fire does not always happen when there is smoke. Sometimes the flue is left shut, and a fire is started, causing smoke to billow into a room. Parties can leave houses filled with smoke odor, and wind can blow smoke into a home from a fire in the neighborhood.

Our local team in Crestview, DeFuniak Springs, and Chipley is trained and certified to restore smoke damage in homes and businesses. Here are some examples of the equipment we use:

  • Air Scrubber or Filter: Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system air scrubber or HEPA air purifier captures larger smoke molecules.
  • Ozone Generator:  These machines emit ozone, which follows the same paths through the air as smoke and oxidizes any residual traces in the air or on surfaces.
  • Thermal Fogging: An intensive treatment involving fogging machines. After residents evacuate, smoke cleaning professionals fill a structure with petroleum distillates that neutralize odors, and then they ventilate the area.
  • Hydroxyl Generator:These machines rely on ultraviolet light to generate hydroxyl radicals that eliminate smoke odors. It will take about three to five days of continuous operation to achieve the same results as a single ozone treatment.
  • Vapor Modification: This odor elimination method relies on aromatic compounds and a blower or fan to neutralize smoke odor.

A person leaves a five-star review on their tablet. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Walton County.

Our local team in Crestview, DeFuniak Springs, and Chipley wants every customer to sing our praises! Here is a Google review from Ashley Still, one of our happy water damage customers:

“The house I just purchased flooded due to some faulty equipment installed by the builder. SERVPRO was called, and they responded quickly to attempt to mitigate the water damage and remove standing water within the home. Jamal and KD were the initial two employees that showed up, and they put in some work! The second day, KD and Ronaldo showed up and put in even more work removing damaged flooring and drywall. Everyone that showed up to work at the house did such a good job. They were very accommodating of furniture that could not be removed from damaged rooms and tried to protect what they could during damage removal. Very friendly and professional all the way around. Though I hope to not need them in the future, I will definitely call them again if I do need them!” Ashley Still

A refrigerator with an ice maker is shown. We restore water damage 24-hours a day in Okaloosa County.

Our local team in Crestview, DeFuniak Springs, and Chipley have been restoring water damage in Crestview for over twenty years.

Proper installation of the ice maker supply line hose is important to avoiding water damage. Here are some refrigerator loss prevention and maintenance tips from the IBHS:

  • Tightly connect the hose to the valve, and avoid over-tightening
  • Ensure the valve connection is secure and check for kinks
  • Inspect the hose every six months
  • If kinks are present, replace the hose
  • Leave a three-to-four-inch space between the back of the refrigerator and the wall to prevent the hose from crimping
  • When pulling the refrigerator out for cleaning or service, avoid getting the hose caught beneath the wheel
  • Locate the water shut-off valve
  • Inspect the valve every six months to make sure the water supply will shut off, and replace the valve if needed

A tornado over the ocean is shown. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Okaloosa County.

Our local team in Crestview, DeFuniak Springs, and Chipley wants everyone to be prepared in the event of a tornado. Here is some information from the Federal Emergency Management Agency:

If there is a tornado warning, you should take shelter immediately. To stay safe during a tornado, follow these steps:

  • Immediately go to a safe location such as a safe room, basement, storm cellar, or a small interior room on the lowest level of a sturdy building
  • Stay away from windows, doors, and outside walls
  • Protect yourself by covering your head or neck with your arms and putting materials such as furniture and blankets around or on top of you

Do not try to outrun a tornado if you’re in your car. Additionally:

  • Do not go under an overpass or bridge. You’re safer in a low, flat location.
  • Watch out for flying debris that can cause injury or death.

Even after a tornado passes, it’s important to stay alert and use caution when clearing debris.

  • Stay clear of fallen power lines or broken utility lines
  • Wear appropriate gear during clean-up, such as thick-soled shoes, long pants, and work gloves, and use appropriate face coverings or masks if cleaning mold or other debris
  • Do not enter damaged buildings until you are told they are safe

Inspect your home’s paint job

  • If there is evidence of paint peeling; itmay point to rain gutter failure
  • Check the section of the rain gutter closest to the paint damage for leaks
  • If there are more than a couple of leaks; you may want to replace the rain gutters
