WOMAN WIPING DOWN TABLE TOP SERVPRO provides cleaning and disinfectant applications to protect homes and businesses in Mississauga.

While adhering to local virus prevention measures for your business you may need a plan for frequent cleaning while your business is open. Businesses in Mississauga that are currently closed should consider having the premises deep-cleaned and ready for reopening. Homeowners need to clean and protect their homes too.

Tips About Cleaning

Whenever possible use hospital-grade cleaning products, or use disinfectants recommended by the CDC.  Always read the labels and apply disinfectants according to instructions. If you use bleach, please understand it is toxic and could burn your skin and eyes, and damage textiles, upholstery, and carpeting. The most important surfaces to keep clean are the active touchpoints in your facility. A recently cleaned surface can become contaminated the moment it comes in contact with the virus. Repetitive cleaning is the key

If you need commercial-quality disinfection services, to be sure the job is done right at your Mississauga office space, business, or home the IICRC-certified restoration professionals at SERVPRO stand ready to assist you. Our pros have extensive experience following the CDC, EPA, and OSHA protocols and requirements about microbial and environmental cleaning at commercial and residential sites.

Disclaimer: Advice from the medical and scientific community regarding how to deal with the coronavirus is based on present knowledge, which is subject to change as the situation continues to develop. There can be no assurance that disinfectants alone will be adequate to fully eliminate the virus. We are not physicians or infectious disease professionals.

Why Our SERVPRO Team is the Choice for Mississauga Water Damage

3/23/2020 (Permalink)

Green truck and trailer parked at house in snow Snow Melt Damage to Your Mississauga Home? No Worries, the SERVPRO Green Fleet Has Arrived

Mississauga, Water Losses, and Solutions?--Why SERVPRO, of Course!

Water loss incidents can often be one of the most typical service calls that our SERVPRO team receives for Mississauga homes and businesses. Understanding how quickly the situation can get out of control, we always strive to provide a fast and deliberate response no matter what time of the day or night these disasters take place. We have an experienced roster of technicians ready to utilize modern practices and advanced equipment and technologies to dry and restore damaged structures.

Water damage for Mississauga homes can vary considerably from one site to the next, from a pipe bursting after steep temperature drops to a leaking sink fixture that deteriorates kitchen cabinetry, what it takes to restore the disaster depends on the situation at hand. Before we can determine what personnel, equipment, and practices are necessary, the job hinges on the inspection and evaluation of our crew chief and project manager who scope the work to get done. This thorough assessment can help the customer, their home insurance provider, and our responding technicians know what is necessary to make water losses “Like it never even happened.”

Preparedness for Emergencies

Preparing for disasters before they happen is not guesswork, but a calculated response to the likelihood of water emergencies occurring as consistently as they continue to happen. So our SERVPRO professionals keep our inventory of recovery tools and advanced detection devices stocked year-round to address these emergencies as they happen. Having production vehicles ready to mobilize at the first sign of a disaster can shave hours off of response times and help to preserve and protect more of your damaged Mississauga property.

Staying prepared also involves maintaining the equipment that we use every day to restore and recover damaged homes and businesses. Our team cares for our inventory of tools and equipment through upkeep, cleaning, and repairs as necessary. Ineffective tools on a job site slow down production and prevent our team from accomplishing our goals efficiently.

Highly Qualified Technicians

Any restoration company can write up pamphlets or shoot commercials telling you that they are the best, but in the end, it comes down to more than talking. Our SERVPRO team does more than the bare minimum to produce qualified restoration technicians, and that starts with the training and coursework required for our professionals to obtain accreditation in their respective niches. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) sets the industry standard for practices and technician education, which is why they are the chosen educator for our newly acquired talent and provide continued education coursework online and in-house to push our team always to be the best.

Extraction Tools

One of the first actions that our professionals must take when reaching a water loss incident is removing standing surface water from the scene. Pooling water can be a continual threat to exposed materials and contents. The standing water can also produce hazards like an electric shock or slip/fall concerns for those in the damaged area, so removing this surface water as quickly as possible is the priority for our responding professionals.

As part of our preparedness for water loss emergencies, our READY trailers stay stocked with our popular extractors, such as:

Depending on the severity of the situation, any of these extraction tools might get used on a restoration task. For substantial depths or widespread concerns, we also have truck-mounted extraction systems that roll out with our Green Fleet. These engine-driven water removal machines can continually pull water from the flooring of a home at 300 psi, allowing our SERVPRO team to move thousands of gallons from Mississauga properties within hours of arrival.

Drying Equipment

Removing the most pressing threats like standing water might be an obvious place to begin the mitigation process, but drying is less straightforward and simple. There are numerous tools used in the restoration of construction materials and contents after saturation has started. At the heart of the drying process, you find two main pieces of equipment:

 Air Movers

High-velocity air movers are the cornerstone machine of evaporative drying techniques used in water damage restoration. There are two main types of these machines, allowing our technicians to direct heated, dry air at either direct points on a surface or item (centrifugal units) or to impact the totality of a water-damaged room (axial units.)

Dehumidifiers

The use of air movers and other evaporative drying equipment increases the relative humidity and moisture content in the environment. Dehumidifiers like our desiccant and low-grain refrigerant (LGR) models can help to collect this moisture in the air to maximize drying.

While these two types of equipment are at the heart of drying processes in every Mississauga home or business, we also have other moisture removal tools and equipment to help in this process as well. A combination of these pieces of equipment can help to provide efficient and effective recovery of water-damaged properties. Beyond air movers and dehumidifiers, other drying equipment includes:

  • Drying mats
  • Positive pressure systems
  • Negative pressure systems

In-House Contractors

Many of the water loss incidents that impact area structures can be a destructive force, requiring more than extraction and drying to resolve. As a full-service restoration team, our SERVPRO response includes both mitigation technicians and a capable crew of licensed residential contractors. These building trades professionals can help with both controlled demolition and reinstalling discarded materials once this stage gets reached in the restoration process. By offering reconstruction along with restoration, we can save customers time and money on the recovery that their property needs by streamlining the process.

Water losses can be a debilitating situation for many of the homes and businesses in the area. With the time-sensitive nature of these disasters, it is critical to get help as quickly as possible. You can reach our SERVPRO of North Mississauga rapid response team anytime that you need us by calling (905) 238-7376. We have skilled technicians and an extensive inventory of recovery tools to help.

SERVPRO Rescues Stricken Water and Fired Damaged Homes in Mississauga with Premier Cleanup and Restoration Services

Restoration Services for the Mississauga Winter and Spring to Combat Water, Mould, Storm or Fire Damage

The long winter months in the Toronto area bring with them high levels of humidity, typically above 60%, as well as rainfall and snow. With extreme weather conditions, there is a higher likelihood of home emergencies occurring. Burst or frozen pipes are a common malady that affects homeowners in this region. Also, high humidity and moisture levels can lead to microbial growth issues. These issues can become a massive problem during winter when your central heating system is likely to provide the ideal temperatures to promote uncontrolled microbial growth. Fortunately, Mississauga is also home to expert restoration services for the repair of mould, storm, water, or fire damage throughout the year.

Water
Throughout the colder months of the year, your home is at high risk of sustaining water damage here in Mississauga. Freezing water in cold temperatures, as well as the thawing during the day, causes water to expand or contract in a constant cycle. In an outdoor environment, this expansion with contraction is barely noticeable. However, in restricted space, this process can cause severe damage to both the infrastructure of your home and its fixtures and contents.

A typical result of extreme temperatures is the failure of pipes or appliances, which leads to a water issue. You may find that water effects different areas of your Mississauga home in different ways, which makes it tough to restore without professional assistance. Understanding the science of building materials is an essential part of the SERVPRO training program. It allows us to tailor a drying strategy for your unique property rather than a blanket restoration service- which could cause further harm to sensitive materials.

When water flows through a structure from an open point, such as a burst pipe, it can spread through the home. This spread can include floors, walls, or ceilings. Understanding the assembly of these areas is essential to active restoration. A floor, for example, is likely to contain porous materials such as drywall, solids like wood as well as metal fittings. Each of these materials responds differently to the presence of heat, moisture, or air movement. At SERVPRO, we perform a careful analysis of building materials to ensure our drying procedure is comprehensive and does not put the home at risk of secondary damage like mould growth.

Mould
Mould is a microbe, and like all living organisms, it requires temperature, food supply, and moisture to grow. The ideal conditions for microbial growth are humidity levels above 60%. With a decent food supply and warm temperatures- such as those found in a centrally heated property- microbial fungi can grow to a full-size colony in as little as seventy-two hours. Residents frequently find mould damage in Mississauga because the average humidity levels during the winter months are cohesive with the ideal humidity for mould growth.

Any loose moisture from condensation, thawing snow, or ice, as well as leaking pipes, can quickly dilapidate into a microbial growth issue. Our team here at SERVPRO includes applied microbial remediation technicians (AMRT) who can provide you with a comprehensive gameplan for getting rid of mould and making sure it does not come back. Since mould can only survive where there is a presence of moisture, our first step is to dry the affected area of your Mississauga home thoroughly. We may need to remove sections of drywall or another physical barrier to gain access to the source of moisture and dry it using air-movers or dehumidification equipment.

Once a SERVPRO mould remediation specialist is happy that the source of moisture is dry, we can begin to remove mould colonies using agitative equipment in combination with negative air pressure. Negative air pressure helps to ensure that mould spores do not spread to other parts of your Mississauga home during the removal phase. Our final step is to treat the affected area with disinfectant and biocide to prevent moulds from progressing through growth stages and returning after the restoration service is complete.

Fire
A property that has recent experience of a cooking fire or electrical fire can become odourous and unpleasant. Unfortunately, masking the scent using an air freshener is a shortcut that can lead to returning or persistent odour. Our team of fire damage restorers in Mississauga are experts at controlling and deodorising a property that has had a recent fire. Malodour comes from several places, which is why SERVPRO cleaning services incorporate several techniques to combat it.

The guiding principle behind odour removal is to spread deodorant in a similar way to how odour particles are spread. In the instance of a fire, odour causing particles from combusting materials are sent through a home in the form of smoke. These smoke deposits can push odour particles into small crevices, cavities, or soft furnishing, which can make removal through cleaning a challenge. SERVPRO restoration services seek to replicate this means of dispersing odour by using equipment with deodorant solvents.

Misting equipment is a lighter form of fogging equipment that is exceptionally useful to SERVPRO technicians. Misters vapourise solvents and dispense a light mist into an indoor environment. They are hand-held and easy to direct into smaller cavities or crevices in the home. The solvent dispersal includes chemical agents that bond with odour causing particles and therefore neutralize the presence of malodour in your Mississauga home.

Storm
Residents of Toronto need to prepare themselves for snowstorms and blizzards during the winter months of each year. These weather events can come on rapidly while causing serious inconvenience for homeowners as well as property damages. Often snowstorms can cause structural harm to a property in the form of sleet or hail, which can, in extreme cases, breakthrough windows and doors. As snow thaws, the likelihood of gutters or drainage systems becoming overworked increases the likelihood of storm damage to your Mississauga home.

When a storm strikes your property, your priority is to find a restoration service that can deal with large loss projects in an efficient and organised manner. SERVPRO emergency services combine hard skills such as the quality and efficiency of restoration with the ability to communicate effectively with residents, who may be under severe stress or facing a temporary relocation from the property. To ensure our services are coordinated, SERVPRO technicians use an iOS dry book to document, assist, and plan the myriad restoration services your Mississauga home needs to get back to a preloss condition.

Recording areas of damage digitally allows us to mobilise the equipment and workforce needed within just four hours of notification of loss. Responding within this time period significantly increases mitigation success and reduces permanent harm to your Mississauga home. During the execution of the restoration service, our technicians can update or record outcomes digitally, which can then be passed onto your insurer for a stress-free claim.

For all types of property damage, you can contact SERVPRO of North Mississauga at (905) 238-7376. We are here to help, 24/7.

How Do I Get Rid of Water Damage in my Mississauga Home? Just Call SERVPRO!

warehouse stocked with drying equipment Our SERVPRO Equipment in Our Warehouse and Highly Trained Technicians Mitigate Your Water Loss in Mississauga

How We Prepare for Mississauga House Water Losses 

Water losses are among the most common call-out that our professionals respond to for Mississauga homes, making it vital that our entire team stays prepared for these scenarios and how best to restore them. Our preparedness for these disasters is trifold, encompassing the extensive training that our technicians receive, the premier equipment used to recover damaged homes, and our availability when the disaster strikes.

Rapid Response

With standing water threats in your home, water removal for Mississauga properties is a vital first step towards getting things back to preloss condition. By stocking trailers and service vehicles at our warehouse with hundreds of air movers, dehumidifiers, extractors, and cleaning products, we can stay prepared for nearly all water loss scenarios 24/7.

The first notice of loss (FNOL) is the point where our customers inform our team of an emergency. This initial information gets technicians moving and preparing for a departure. At the same time, our administration responds to this call to collect more vital information about the disaster and what damage already exists. The better prepared our professionals are when we arrive at your address, the quicker we can establish drying zones, and prevent further migration of water damages to unaffected portions of the property.

When our professionals arrive at the house, we can determine what tools are best for the water removal needs based on the extent of present damage.

Equipment

Water removal is only part of the obstacles that our SERVPRO professionals face when restoring water losses to your home. Saturation and moisture in structural cavities, underneath the surface layers of materials, and in the environment must all get addressed as well. In this sense, water removal is one of the most considerable obstacles, as it means more than extracting standing water from the floors of your home. 

There are many different types of tools that can help with facets of water removal, including extraction, evaporative drying, and construction solutions when direct restorative actions might be ineffective. 

Extraction Tools

Choosing the right extraction machine starts with determining the severity of the standing water in your home. The choice for several feet of standing water, like a truck-mount extractor or a gas-powered trash pump, might differ from a wet vacuum or electric submersible pump used with lesser volumes. 

Air Movers

Evaporative drying is a stable solution for managing water removal from materials and the environment. Centrifugal air movers are powerful machines that can direct a concentrated blast of heated air at a specific point or portion of a material to expedite surface drying. Axial air movers can also be useful for drying larger rooms and areas without a specific point of focus.

Dehumidifiers

Once air movers have started water removal through evaporation, dehumidifiers play a role in collecting moisture in the environment and exhausting it outside of the structure. Depending on the conditions of the loss incident, including the temperature and location of moisture, water removal with dehumidifiers can either happen with our desiccant or refrigerant models.

Specialty Drying Tools

Weighted extractors can help with water removal from carpeted flooring, while other tools like drying mats can pull excessive moisture from wood planks. While every water loss scenario does not require the use of some of the specialty drying tools that our SERVPRO professionals have, we stay prepared for these water removal scenarios by stocking positive pressure systems, drying mats, weighted extractors, and negative pressure systems.

Cleaning Products

Cleaning up after water removal is another vital element to making a water loss incident “Like it never even happened.” Our professionals have an extensive assortment of potent cleaning agents and products that can help to remove residues, clear sediment, prevent staining in fabrics and flooring, and even address unsavory odors that might linger behind after a disaster. The application of these products can be instrumental in finalizing the efforts of water removal in your house.

Training

We strive to provide our customers with more than just a fast response when they need it the most. Arriving quickly is not nearly as important as knowing what to do when you get there. Each of our water restoration technicians (WRT) has extensive training and accreditations through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to understand how best to serve a home in need of water removal services.

In addition to the rudimentary information necessary to provide skilled WRTs for water removal and recovery in your house, many of these same technicians have extended their knowledge in this niche of the industry with additional endorsements for Applied Structural Drying (ASD) and Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT.) These additional certifications can offer practical solutions for water removal in structural elements, cavities, and inaccessible areas to make recovery more efficient. Remediation technicians can reduce the potential spread and development of mold colonies through the application of inhibitors and antimicrobial solutions to exposed framing and construction materials in the drying zones.

Experience also plays a significant role in water removal, cleaning, and even reconstruction that we can offer homeowners. Because substantial loss incidents can deteriorate drywall and other construction materials, water restoration for Mississauga homes often hinges on controlled demolition strategies. These efforts bolster the efficiency of drying and open up inaccessible areas for more focused water removal with light wands and wet vacuums. We have a full division of in-house contractors to oversee this controlled demolition and reconstruction once mitigation and restoration efforts have completed to dry and restore salvageable contents and structural elements.

Water loss incidents offer a finite timeline to protect and restore exposed materials and contents. Often, areas of your home where water removal or drying efforts have not started within 48 hours can experience irreparable damage and losses. Our SERVPRO of North Mississauga team of water restoration professionals can respond quickly to these emergencies with the premier equipment and experience to help. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and that begins when you first call our emergency response team at (905) 238-7376.
