Thermal Imaging used by SERVPRO of Ocala Professional

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

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

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

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. Storm damage like this type is unexpected and unpredictable.Besides ground water intruding into the buildings, the high winds caused roof damage and allows tons of water to pour in as well. This is one of many reasons to be aware and ready to call because SERVPRO of Ocala is ready to respond to any size damage day and night. Call 352-732-6630

Fire in a Business in Ocala, FL

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

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

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

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! SERVPRO of Ocala has 24/7 live consultants on call to ask the right questions and dispatch out our crews.

This was a unique loss, even for our industry. We received a call early one Sunday morning from a Doctors office regarding a flood.  While gathering information for our first notice of loss we asked what the source was.  The owner stated that the glue that held the mirror on in the employee bathroom gave way.  The mirror then slid down behind the bathroom vanity severing both the hot and cold water supply lines to the sink flooding about 4,000 sqft of office space.
