The Relief of a SERVPRO Box Truck at Your Arlington Home after Property Damage Is Priceless!!
Why Arlington Residents Choose SERVPRO for Restoration Services in the First Coast Area
The primary goal of a restorer is to return a property to its preloss condition. The task is a multi-faceted one which requires a strong skill-set as well as advanced equipment to complete successfully. Properties can sustain many different types of damages during there lifetime. Some types of damage may be related to water, flooding, or storms. Others may be the result of microbial growth in the form of mold or removing smoke residues after a kitchen fire. Since many of these duties overlap, restoration services need a diverse team of technicians with cross-training to truly make property damages "Like it never even happened."
Being situated on the coast, restoration services for storm damage in Arlington are an unfortunately common part of our business practices. Periods of the year where strong winds or heavy rainfall occur can take their toll on your home, pulling off roof tiles or damaging doors and windows. In some situations, flooding can occur in the ground levels as a result of nearby road overflow or falling debris that opens up cavities for rainwater to fall into.
We ensure that there are SERVPRO technicians available on-call in Arlington and the surrounding area should you require out of hours emergency assistance. Water damage increases exponentially the longer it remains untreated, meaning that a clean water emergency can quickly deteriorate into a contaminated water disaster. Our restoration services incorporate microbial growth control as well as a full scoping procedure to ensure that your home is safe and secure in both the short and medium term.
It is not uncommon for the impact of a storm to require some reconstruction or remodeling work. SERVPRO can engage on your behalf to ensure that you only have to deal with one restoration service from start to finish, us. We can also spot and neutralize potential hazards so that a workforce can enter the property to begin reconstruction work on your Arlington residence. Restoring power to a property, or performing emergency board ups on windows and doors are vital procedures which secure the property and mitigate further losses until the restoration, and if needed, rebuilding are completed.
One restoration service we provide is structural and contents cleaning after fire damage in your Arlington home. Smoke residues are frequently deposited throughout the property during fires and can enter your Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. SERVPRO fire restoration technicians are trained to understand the patterns of smoke movement throughout a property and can pinpoint areas that require extra attention or specialized cleaning solutions like duct restoration.
We conduct a pre-test of contents and structure that have been affected by smoke or fire. The pre-test provides a SERVPRO restorer with a clear picture of the type of residues left behind. Residues can be oil-based, in the case of protein or synthetic fires, or water-based where natural materials like wood have burned. When soots settle on surfaces, they often need to be dissolved in a solvent solution for complete removal. Pre-tests inform SERVPRO technicians of whether to use oil or water-based chemical agents to ensure the best results.
One critical concern for homeowners in Arlington that have experienced a property fire is odor control. Malodors are microscopic particles that can become embedded in surfaces or fabrics. The best method of removing odors is to recreate the conditions that caused them. In the case of a fire, thermal ULV foggers can be deployed which produce a solvent vapor that mirrors smoke. The vapor contains chemical pairing agents which bond to odor particles and cause them to drop to the ground where they can be wiped or vacuumed away, leaving no residues. Other compounds simply float away with the air currents.
Slow leaks are tough to spot but can cause extensive water damage to your Arlington home. Often hidden behind drywall or underneath floorboards, these issues only become apparent once warping, staining or buckling is visibly apparent. SERVPRO water restoration technicians (WRT) can detect moisture that is invisible to the naked eye using infrared thermal imaging cameras.
Starting from the source of water, we can work our way outward performing restoration services along the way. Readings can be taken from materials throughout the inspection phase. Using moisture sensors to penetrate surfaces, SERVPRO technicians can get an accurate picture of the moisture content in structural contents. Arlington properties with hardwood flooring can be temporarily removed to gain access to the subfloor and thoroughly dry the affected area. Before replacing it, floorboards can be sanded to level out signs of warping or buckling. We are also prepared to enter crawlspaces for drying the underpinnings.
Areas that may have restricted access, like wall cavities, for example, can also be treated by a SERVPRO technician. Using injectidry systems, technicians can circulate airflow inside a cavity or raise the surface temperature using rapid air-movers. Doing so encourages evaporation of interior moisture pockets. Moisture that has evaporated into the surrounding air can then be drawn into dehumidifiers or exchanged for drier outdoor air to ensure humidity remains under control.
In almost all types of restoration service, controlling microbial growth is a factor. Mold spores are a natural part of any home environment but become a problem when they come into contact with moisture and can proliferate in a short period. Property owners that discover mold damage in their Arlington home are often surprised to learn that the cause was a pre-existing water issue or a previous restoration service that left behind damp spots or moisture residues.
At, SERVPRO, the mold remediation process begins by establishing a containment zone. Containing is essential to preventing the infestation from spreading throughout the property while intensive cleaning methods are taking place. Clean rooms may be established for decontamination as well as plastic sheeting being put in place. Negative air pressure can help to prevent the spread of mold spores during the remediation process.
The most effective methods of remediating microbial infestations are through tackling the source of the issue, by drying and controlling humidity. As an extra safeguard, SERVPRO technicians can use biocides and anti-microbial treatments throughout your Arlington home. These can be incorporated in base-coats of paint for walls and ceilings, or as a spray on treatment for carpets and flooring. Anti-microbial treatments are an essential safeguard against recurring damages in mold remediation.
At SERVPRO of Arlington, bringing your home back to a preloss condition is the core goal of our restoration service. Contact us today at (904) 721-2230.
When Your Window Air Conditioning Unit Causes Water Damage in Your Arlington Home
Window units can leak, bringing moisture into your walls. Inspect your unit often for signs of water damage.
What You Can Do When Your Window Air Conditioner Causes Water Damage to Your Arlington Home
Window air conditioners may be very convenient during the hot and humid summer months in Florida, but they can also cause water damage. In the case of your home, your window air conditioner had been leaking, unnoticed, for a few days, damaging the sill that it sits on. The thing that tipped you off to the leak was finding a mysterious puddle of water on the floor below the sill one morning when the leak had been particularly bad.
To combat the water damage in your Arlington house, reach out for professional help as soon as possible. While you wait for help to arrive, it is wise to unplug the air conditioning unit. Additionally, you can even get the remediation started by cleaning up the standing water in front of the A/C unit. Getting the puddle of water off of the floor as soon as possible lessens the chance that it can penetrate the hardwood floor and cause water damage.
When SERVPRO receives your call, we always quickly gather a team and then head to your home as promptly as we can. Our vans are full of advanced technology designed to remediate water damage. Our technicians never arrive at a job underprepared for the damage in your home.
SERVPRO can get to work immediately once inside by removing the air conditioning unit from your window. We can then get a better idea of how much of the sill has been damaged, along with the wall beneath it. Our technicians can use moisture meters to determine the moisture level in the house, as well as thermal imaging cameras to look for pockets of moisture in the wall. Once informed, our technicians can create a drying plan for your living room.
SERVPRO can feed a small air blasting tube into your wall after drilling a hole, allowing hot and dry air to fill up the cavity inside of the wall. We can also set up dehumidifiers, heaters, and air movers on the outside of the wall, to hit both sides with dry air and to direct air to the water damaged sill as well. Our overall goal is to remove all of the excess moisture in your living room and to return it to its preloss state.
When an appliance causes water damage, act immediately. Get in touch with SERVPRO of Arlington by dialing (904) 721-2230. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Conquer Storm Damage Remediation in Your Jacksonville Home
When flooding and storm damage affect your home, time is of the essence. Contact SERVPRO to make it "Like it never even happened."
Storm Damage in Your Jacksonville Residence
After arriving on your flood-damaged Jacksonville area property, our technicians carefully pre-inspect all aspects of the flooded area. It is our team's job to begin mitigating damage immediately. If the water invading your property is clean and safe to enter, we start implementing a specific set of actions right away.
First and foremost, we inform everyone on the crew and the homeowner if the flood damage in their Jacksonville home presents any immediate dangers. Electrical hazards, falling ceilings, and deteriorated subfloors are all common occurrences after a flood. Spending a few minutes securing the structure can save lives.
Next, SERVPRO’s water damage restoration technicians (WRT) use a variety of hand-held, truck-mounted, and submersible extraction equipment. We pump out all standing water found on your property, checking floors, walls, and crawlspaces whenever necessary. Using the proper equipment for any given situation allows us access to hard-to-reach areas otherwise overlooked.
SERVPRO technicians use a water meter to determine the extent of water penetration in carpets, floors, walls, and ceilings. We move and block any furniture found in your home and extract water from all carpeting and hard-surface flooring. Our team also detaches the carpet from the floor to extract water from both padding and subfloor underneath. However, in most cases, replacement of padding is necessary.
SERVPRO examines the back of the carpet for damages, looking for delamination, bad seams, or visible mold. We check for pre-existing damages and determine whether or not your carpeting remains salvageable. Technicians treat the floor and back of carpet with an appropriate deodorizer and anti-microbial before putting the carpet back in place for additional extraction. Once fully extracted, the top of the carpet also receives deodorizer and anti-microbial treatments to the face fibers.
We pay close attention to carpeting overall, continually searching for any furniture stains caused by the flood. As this type of stain is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to remove after your carpet fully dries. With extraction complete, your restoration team places dehumidifiers and air-movers strategically around the affected area, which begins the drying process.
Call us at SERVPRO of Arlington for full-service flood damage solutions throughout the Fort Caroline, St Nicholas, and Spring Glen areas. We have emergency responders available 24-hrs a day, 7-days a week, with access to all of the equipment, tools, and resources needed to tackle any size job. (904) 721-2230

Is Your Arlington Living Room Threatened By Water Damage? We Can Help!
The living room is thought by many to be the heart of homes in Arlington. However, the inviting atmosphere of your living room can be ruined by a leaky pipe in your wall that causes water to seep into your upholstery, carpeting, and cushions. Rapid removal of spillage in your house is vital for preventing permanent damage, so it is essential that you contact professionals as soon as you discover a leak.
Water damage restoration technicians (WRT) from SERVPRO are experienced in water removal from Arlington homes. Once we have arrived on your property, we can perform an inspection of the extent of flooding to determine the best course of action for removing the standing water. In most cases involving leaking pipes, water levels are relatively low, and the spillage can be extracted with the use of industrial-grade wet vacs. However, a burst pipe can output hundreds of gallons of water per hour and can cause significant flooding, forcing us to deploy pumps capable of functioning while submerged.
After being exposed to water, upholstery can stain or develop mildew and mold. To prevent this, our Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified techs can remove your cushions and sheets from wet areas to facilitate air drying. For larger and spongier pieces such as cushions, we can use air movers and dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process.
Carpeting can also be negatively affected by water exposure and can even delaminate from your subfloor after extended submersion in water. To help prevent this, we can remove wet sections of your carpet for air drying. For further damage prevention, we can use moisture sensors to search for damage in the subflooring below your carpets. If we discover high moisture levels, we can deploy additional air movers and dehumidifiers to extract the excess moisture.
If your living room has turned from being warm and welcoming to damp and uninviting, contact SERVPRO of Arlington at (904) 721-2230 for efficient water removal. Our emergency line is accessible 24/7, so call us right away to begin speaking with one of our qualified technicians.

Smelly Odors after a Fire in Your Jacksonville Property? No Need to Hold Your Nose! Just Call SERVPRO!
Smoke and Fire Loss in Your Jacksonville Home? Call SERVPRO for a Great Cleanup and Recovery
Get Fire Damage Mitigation for Your Jacksonville Home to Eliminate Smoke Residues and Odors
Fires can start in homes because of electrical faults, children playing with matches or homeowners failing to monitor cooking equipment. Once a fire is extinguished, removing lingering odors and residues is difficult. The effects can be overwhelming, and you might even make the mistake of throwing away possessions that could be cleaned and restored.
If your Jacksonville home has fire damage, you can trust the professionals from SERVPRO to clean up the affected areas and eliminate smoke odors and residues. It is vital to clean and treat every exposed surface thoroughly to prevent continuing damage and the persistent smoke odor. When the soot and ash mix with water, they become acidic enough to corrode the surfaces that come into contact with the caustic mix.
Soap, water, and common household cleaners cannot clean up this mixture quickly and adequately. Although the visible stains can disappear after enough scrubbing, the chemicals in the cleaning products can seep down into the walls, floors, or other porous surfaces, and continue ruining them for many weeks or months. After they are soaked in, the chemicals can cause persistent bad odor in your home. For fixing this issue, it is critical to eliminate the source of the odor. Our technicians have the equipment, protective gear, and expertise to complete this task appropriately.
Our SERVPRO restoration specialists can clean the affected surfaces thoroughly using dry and wet washing techniques to release and carry away the residue particles. Chemically treated wet and dry sponges can remove most residues, though at times a preliminary vacuuming with a HEPA filtered device yields positive results. We can follow up this procedure with deodorization using a combination of deodorization techniques since one product or process cannot solve all odor problems. Some odors require direct spraying, and others fogging.
Our fire and smoke damage restoration technicians (FSRT) use different types of deodorizing equipment, including air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators, depending on the odor situation. Air scrubbers can eliminate airborne particles, gases, and odors from the air. These devices draw dirty indoor air through a series of HEPA and charcoal filters, capturing gases, particles, and odors. They then exhaust clean air back into the home. Our crew works hard to restore items to their original condition using safe and thorough restoration techniques.
If your home has fire damage, contact SERVPRO of Arlington at (904) 721-2230 for mitigation. We’re available at any time of the day or night. Our restoration team can make the damage look “Like it never even happened.”

Water Cleanup For Your Arlington Home
You don’t ever want to walk into your Arlington kitchen only to find gallons of water all over the floor from a failed dishwasher. Dealing with a flooded kitchen is never an easy task. Then add a broken dishwasher into the mix, and there are several different problems you need to address. Knowing what to do in a position like this can help you to recover faster.
After your dishwasher has unloaded gallons of water into your Arlington kitchen, there are some steps you can take to help yourself. Firstly, you should ensure that the water has not affected outlets or electrical appliances. If there are any doubts, then turn the power to your kitchen off, then get in touch with a professional remediation company, such as SERVPRO, right away for help with the water cleanup.
Knowing if your homeowner’s insurance covers water damage from your dishwasher is also essential. In most cases, you are covered, but check your policy to make sure that you are. You don’t want to be surprised. SERVPRO techs can also assist you in calling your insurance company to help you get the coverage that you need.
Most water damage does not dry in one day. Once we have removed any standing water and have set up the drying equipment such as dehumidifiers and air movers, we monitor them daily. The machines are moved if needed to ensure optimum drying time. If the affected area takes too long to dry, there is a more significant potential for additional damage from mold growth.
We also ensure that our equipment is working correctly and has not overloaded any circuits and popped your circuit breaker. These machines must keep running to provide the dry air and air movement, which is essential to dry your home.
Understanding how your dishwasher can fail, and performing some preventative maintenance can save your kitchen from a water damage disaster. Your insurance adjuster is also happier when you do this, should you ever have to file a claim. Look over your manufacturer’s manual for your dishwasher and inspect this essential appliance several times a year to ensure that all hoses are in good condition and everything else is in working order.
SERVPRO of Arlington knows what a mess your dishwasher in your home in Glynlea, Merrill, or Spring Glen can make when it breaks. When you experience a situation like this, call us right away at (904) 721-2230 so we can get your home looking “Like it never even happened.”

When A Flood Causes Major Damage To Your Jacksonville Home, You Need To Call Our Crew!
SERVPRO of Arlington is here to help you restore your home after flooding, so it looks “Like it never even happened.”
Flood Damage Cleanup In Your Jacksonville Home
Floods are destructive and unpredictable, but if you can prepare yourself and your home in Jacksonville before flooding occurs, it helps you avoid at least some of the effects. Not being prepared can leave you with a recovery that is stressful, slow, and costly. Flooding can occur at any time, and taking a few hours to prepare an emergency kit, securing your property, and having a plan for you and your family can help you get through the aftermath of a flood.
Once the storms have subsided, you need the assistance of a professional remediation company to restore the flood damage done to your Jacksonville home. You need someone who is experienced and can work in a timely fashion so you can avoid additional damage and can get back to your life as soon as possible. At SERVPRO, we have the training and experience you would expect, and we also understand that this is a tough time for you and your family.
Some of the things you can do to prepare for a flood include preparing an emergency kit, making a flood plan for your household, keeping a list of emergency numbers where everyone can see them, and checking your insurance policy to see if you are covered for flood damage. If you're in a region that is susceptible to flooding, you might consider alternatives to carpeting in your home as well.
When SERVPRO come to help you clean up after a flood, the first thing we need to do is extract any standing water that is left. If it is not too deep, mops and buckets can be used. If it is more than a few inches, we have truck-mounted pumps to help us get the water out. If needed, we then remove any items such as furniture, artwork or heirlooms out of the home to a location that is safe and dry while we finish the restoration.
We then position air movers, heavy-duty fans and dehumidifiers throughout the affected areas to promote airflow and faster drying time. These machines are monitored daily and rearranged as needed. If you have carpeting in the home, we likely have to remove the padding and discard it but can dry the carpeting out. When everything is dry, we deodorize and disinfect your home to prevent the growth of mold.
SERVPRO of Arlington is here to help you restore your home in Glynlea, Merrill, or Spring Glen after flooding, so it looks “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (904) 721-2230 once the storms are over, and we can have you back in your home before you know it.
